How I got $64.83 worth of goods for FREE from

I am an iHerb customer and in being that have a coupon code I can give to family, friends, co-workers or anyone. With that code you receive $5 off of your first order and then you also get your own iHerb coupon code that you can give out.  When someone uses your coupon code they will then get $5 off of their first order and you will receive 4% of their order subtotal.  When the people, who have used your code, give people their own code to receive $5 off the first order, you receive 3% of that order subtotal.  This process repeats itself two more times with 2% and 1%.  It adds up.
You can use your "rewards" in two ways.  You can use the rewards as credit (dollar for dollar) applied to your own orders or you can choose to have the rewards sent to you as cash.
You have to accumulate $300 before you can cash out.

FREE Tazo Passion Tea after using coupon code KOB531 at

Use Coupon Code KOB531 for $5 off of your first order making Passion Tea FREE!! Tasted Tazo Passion tea last year for the first time at Starbucks.  I quickly became addicted to my Passion Ice tea every morning.
I then found the tea bags at a local grocery and was thrilled to not have to pay so much for my morning Passion Tea.  Making a pitcher of Passion tea became a ritual at home. Seeing that iHerb has Tazo teas now and specifically Passion Tea is GREAT.  The savings are phenomenal. has Tazo Passion tea on sale for $3.80.  Using iHerb coupon code KOB531 or coupon code UHU120 they get you $5 off of your first order, making Tazo Passion tea FREE!!  I also like Awake and Zen Tazo Teas  FIVE STARS!!

Gasbuddy iPhone app

The Gasbuddy app lets you search and find the cheapest gasoline prices in your area.
Users update the prices they see if they differ.
There are sweepstakes to win free gas.
The prices have been pretty accurate and I have updated a few dozen as I am out the door before 6 am.
Some pics of the Gasbuddy app are here.

I'm RICH! $8 FieldAgent "JOB"

(summary of my FieldAgent jobs so far)
There haven't been a lot of jobs close by these last few days.
Also it had been a while since I saw a job for more than $6.
I checked ( I think) late Monday night for jobs I might like Wednesday.
There were a few for $8 and I believe I even saw one for $9 or $9.50.
Most of them were too far away per my rule ( to not drive out of my way).
There was one for an audit at Sears for $8.  If it was still available I would take it,
Yesterday afternoon rolled around and before I started to drive home I checked again.

Nice FieldAgent "jobs" just too far away.

There are a few nice FieldAgent "jobs" around - most $4 but a few $6.  I just cannot justify driving out of my way to complete them.
There will be more.
I wanted to count on this cashola for gas!

Checkpoints.....nah, don't like 'em

In the spirit of checking out the "reward for shopping" apps I checked out Checkpoints.
Same premise as WeReward and Shopkick. What could be the problem??....
With WeReward I haven't amassed millions yet but throw a few pennies on the account/day.  It's a "whenever I remember about it" kind of App for me.

Chrome losing its luster?

Installed Google's' Chrome web browser a few weeks ago.
I'm not liking it.
It hangs up a LOT.
Usually IE would be eating up too much memory (at least with Vista running) and I would have to kill the process.
Task manager showing Chrome not eating memory....I have a fantabulous internet connection so what is the problem?
At a stock price of a $kazillion I would think they would be superior in the browser market.

Robbylikes REDBOX

After the snafu with signing up @redbox via the iPhone app, the experience was seamless.  Two movies, a buck each, that's SAVING MONEY!!
I still like the instant viewing available from Netflix (on TV thru the Wii or on the computer or iPhone) however they aren't first run movies.
If I nix the Netflix we can use that $9 to see nine movies a month.
I also don't have to wait in line(though sometimes there are one or two people ahead of me outside the kiosk).
The kiosk was easy to navigate.  I don't know if I could have
