Free Credit Score from Credit Sesame

Did you know that Credit Sesame  allows you to monitor your credit score for free?

Do you know what your credit score is?  While this number isn’t something you typically share with your friends over dinner, it’s important to be aware of it.

My husband and I are in the process of buying a new house and the interest rate for our mortgage was dependent on our credit scores.  If you have a high credit score, you’ll get a low interest rate.  Thankfully, we were able to get a good rate.

With rates going up, it’s important for your score to be as high as possible.   A recent FTC study showed that 20% of Americans have errors on their credit report that are costing them money. Make sure you’re not one of them!

The kids loved it…although they did say it made them hungry! :)

Tax Day Freebies for 2013

Tax Day is almost here! And while I absolutely love living in the USA, like most Americans I dread tax day every. single. year!  While this is a stressful time of year for some people, there are some perks.  Quite a few business recognize that this time of year is a little rough and to help us soothe our sorrows, they’ve offered some great freebies!  Here are some of the freebies that are available this year!


Freebie: For the third straight year, the fast food chain is offering emotionally- and financially-taxed Americans a delicious freebie on Tax Day. Arby’s is serving up patrons a choice of a free value-sized order of Curly Fries or a small order of Potato Cakes. This is the first year they’re offering Free Potato Cakes, so this is a win for all you potato cake lovers!

Panda Express

Freebie: Last year’s Tax Day fell on April 17, but that doesn’t seem to stop Panda Express from offering its freebie on April 17 of this year, too. On the Wednesday after Tax Day, present this coupon (either printed or via mobile phone) for a free Samurai Surf & Turf entree.  My daughter Amina loves Panda Express, so I have a feeling we’ll be heading that way next Wednesday!


Freebie: Feeling bitter about filing? (Paltry return? Writing a check to Uncle Sam?) Then head to your nearest Cinnabon and nab two free Cinnabon Bites. It’ll sweeten up your day without emptying your wallet.


Freebie: Food isn’t the only type of freebie you can get on Tax Day! After poring over every last detail of those tax returns, your mind and body need a rest. Bring this printable coupon to your nearest participating HydroMassage location for a free HydroMassage Experience. If you already have plans on April 15th, (like curling up with a big bowl of ice cream to drown your sorrows) don’t worry — this offer is valid until April 19.  I’ve always wanted to try one of these, so this may be the chance I’ve been waiting for!

Office Depot

Freebie: It’s always helpful to keep copies of your tax return. (You’ll need to cough ‘em up if you plan on applying for a mortgage, for example.) Keep the 2012 tax year on file by going to Office Depot and receiving a free black and white copy of your tax return (up to 25 pages, single-sided). Or if you need to dispose of some sensitive information, Office Depot also provides free document shredding (up to 5 lbs.). Offers expire May 1.

I’ll be updating this list as more freebies pop up! If you know of any that I’ve missed, please shoot me an email or leave a comment!

Thanks DealNews!

Courageous Book FREE!

I absolutely loved the movie Courageous and right now you can get the book as a Kindle download, Courageous: A Novel for FREE!

Here’s the description of it:

From the creators of Fireproof comes an inspiring new story about everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.

They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift farther and farther away from them. Will they be able to find a way to serve and protect those who are most dear to them? When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God . . . and to their children?
