Do Christmas Shopping With Coupons This Year

Christmas shopping sucks. The malls are crowded, the best gifts are sold out, and it's usually far too late to buy Christmas gifts online by the time you get around to it. Over the Christmas season it's a good idea to order anything at least 2 weeks in advance, because shipping times get stretched out badly.

Unfortunately, online merchants know that loads of people do their Christmas shopping online, and so they pump their prices up. You can get around this, and end up spending way less than you would in a retail store if you use coupon codes to buy gifts online for your friends and relatives. Online coupons take on a whole new meaning, and you can actually save BIG if you know where you can find good coupons.

Coupon Chief have loads of coupons for all your favorite stores, and you can save a lot of money if you use them. They have coupons for the biggest range of merchants you'll ever see, so you can get a great deal on just about any type of product.

Two of the hot coupon deals right now are coupons for Alibris, a large online bookstore and community with over 40 million new and used books to choose from (Cheaper than Amazon most of the time), and the other is for Dell notebooks and accessories.

The Dell coupons are awesome, because you can save up to $350 when you buy a $999 notebook. If you're planning to buy a Dell notebook for someone this Christmas, don't do anything without a coupon from Coupon Chief!

Organs in the Fridge & Some Link Love

A few days ago in a semi-rural part of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, a nurse was arrested in a hospital parking lot in possession of a human baby's umbilical cord.

Police raided the suspect's home and found a refrigerator full of human organs. The organs were supposedly destined for use in the preparation of traditional medicines. Read the Full Story on IOL

Now, that story will make almost no sense to anyone who doesn't live in SA. I guess around here this kind of thing only makes the 3rd or 4th page, so without any further ado, here's some link love. Clicky Clicky.

Things By Mike - I don't really know what Things by Mike is really all about, but I read it every day. He runs a rad little webcomic called 'Gummy, The Lovesick Alien', which is funny most of the time, and weird enough to entertain the rest of the time.

As Seen On The Tube - Talia's blog featuring TV products that you actually need. They might not be glamorous or exciting, but one day you'll ask how you ever lived without these things.

The Ominous Comma
- One of the most random humor blogs on the net. There's always something funny, as long as The Comma isn't ranting about something.

Want $20? Got a Blog?

PayPerPost is probably the easiest way to get paid to blog. The idea is simple: advertisers post projects that they want bloggers (called posties in the PayPerPost world) to write about and promote. You sign up for these 'opportunities', write the article and get paid instantly into your PayPal account!

Sounds too good to be true? Well, there is a snag, and that's the 1 requirement they have. To join PayPerPost your blog must be at least 90 days old. This is the only requirement that's tricky to meet - the rest are a piece of cake.

The best part? When you join PayPerPost and get your blog approved there will be lots of opportunities open, but you also have the opportunity to blog about PayPerPost, and this pays you $20, instantly.

So what kind of blogger do you have to be to join PayPerPost? Well, any type of blog is accepted, but those that have something to do with products will always find something to get paid to blog about. Since their network is very large, there are always hundreds of opportunities to choose from, and you're bound to find something that fits within your blog's sphere.

So if you have a blog and you want to make money writing on your blog, even if you don't sell anything, go ahead and sign up for PayPerPost - it's the easiest writing money on the internet!
