eBay is doing another $2 off +$2 coupon.  This time you have to use the app.  Code is TAKETWO , but you can find all the details in your messages for your account.

I'm trying to decide if a free set of stop collars is worth calls from Chinese telemarketers for the next few weeks.

Until lately I've had a flawless record buying cheap junk from china, but of the last three things I ordered, one was wrong and two just didn't come in.

Thanks for the heads up.  I needed a new copy of Dragon Warrior and this saved me two bucks.

Amazon is offering free samples... if they decide to randomly send you some that is.

Speaking of Amazon... They had these dartboards probably priced incorrectly recently: https://www.amazon.com/FOOTBALLDARTS-Football-Dartboard-Game/dp/B07SMPDMRG/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=footballdarts&qid=1567834975&s=gateway&sr=8-2

$5 shipped, I cleaned em out of the 9 they had in stock at the time. Not quite free, but they'll make badass promotional items in some upcoming dart tournaments.

Only one of those lawsuits that ever paid out was the Sketchers Shape Ups.  The judge doubled the fine or something along those lines.  I got a $400+ check out of it.

Mayflower movers got popped for ripping us off on bogus tax fees.  That was around $100.  Otherwise it’s been nickel and dime stuff.

We got roughly 300 from that contaminated water fiasco a few years back.  Considering I may get cancer or grow a third eye or something later down the line that's probably not enough. 

So I signed up for a free Harley t-shirt a while back.  HD got cheap because too many people applied so they sent me a lousy sticker instead.

As the discussion seems to have got onto settlements, We've been doing OK in the UK recently what with banks being forced to pay back rip off charges going back 10 years,  That got us back about £3000,  PPI repayment got me back about another £1000, And then there was about £1200 back from a bank account that charged a monthly fee for things we never used.  Unfortunately I have never had an endowment mortgage or any investment that has lost money as those the are next big value items which are being claimed back by people. I imagine the next thing will be, did you take out fixed term life insurance and not die in that period, you too could claim your money back plus interest  >:D >:D

The free stuff train from Amazon continues.  They won't comp you a free month of Prime anymore, and they keep missing their guaranteed delivery dates.  (Mostly because everyone is background checked before they're let in the dock, their couriers refuse to submit to it, and it ends up being handed to another delivery service)

Anything under $10 they just immediately refund if you squawk about it.

Yeah getting stuff from China has been a real PITA lately.... A bunch of stuff never came in and they give me a refund but I'd much rather have my stuff.  Gonna have to buy "Merican" microswitches I guess.

I bought it on the switch for same price.... had some gold coins so it was a freebie as well.  It's good.  It doesn't have much variety but it's good.

Coke.com is doing Amazon cards right now.  One measly code nets you two bucks....  It's already at 66% so do it tonight.  Also fair warning, you have 5 days to claim the codes after the goal is met, so keep an eye on it.

Thanks for the heads up on that one.  $10 towards a PS4 game I won't ever take out of the shrink wrap!  This takes the sting out of that last promotion where Coke got me for like 40 codes.

I went to dinner tonight.
Sam adam's rep was there.
She was hot of course and talked me into holding a giant beer stein full of liquid that looked like beer out in front of me as long as I can.
just needed to beat 3.2 seconds. (the bar champion)
made it to 3.5 seconds.
my arm may fall off while I sleep.
but I got a gigantic clay sam adams 2019 beer stein with a tin flip top and a normal human sized 16 oz sam adams mug.
for free.

then I looked on the sam adams site.
some meta-human held one up for 19 mins.
some woman went 7 mins. WTF?!?!?

i'm just glad i got a bunch of sissy's where i live cause like nice free stuff.

When I went to the gym this morning, I decided to give this challenge a try.  Apparently it's called stein hoisting / Masskrugstemmen, and it involves holding 5lbs at arm's length for as long as possible.  My gym does not have any 5lb dumbbells, so I used a 5lb barbell weight.  Completely cold I got to 2 minutes, and I'll admit the last 15-20 seconds were excruciating.  It's harder than it looks.

Hope you're enjoying it, my wife's pissed I gave away a coffee mug and is threatening to give away my souvenir pint glasses.  "YES, PLEASE! GIVE THEM ALL AWAY! PLEASE!"   :lol

Anyway, now that we're in a brave new era of Amazon refusing to extend prime, but still offering compensation for missed delivery dates, I was able to pick up a copy of Hitman 2 for my PS4.  It will go into my third shoebox of unopened PS4 games.  If they miss the next day shipping deadline, I'll roll it into another game.
