Sign up for door dash Uber eats and then donít actually use them.  Eventually theyíll start throwing promos at you.  Latest one I got was $25 credit with no fees and free delivery.  I canít even get it in person for as cheap as their promos.  I figure the pandemic business is down and theyíve got venture capital to burn.

Iíve eaten so much dumb, weird stuff for almost nothing.  Some place here has a humanoid robot that makes noodles, that was fun.  Another promo was $50 off $100 in groceries and they were honoring in store sales.  Got a mountain of steaks and shrimp.  It was actually borderline obscene.

Good get, but if you intend to use it with light guns test before building anything.  I had a Trinitron that had built in video processing that couldn't be turned off and it prevented light guns from working correctly.

Thanks for the heads up.   There is one caveat:

Not free, but really cheap for what it is...
Use Chrome with Location Guard, spoof your location to Ferguson, MN.  Store 2831.  Use Paypal to pay.
Cost me $107 shipped to Houston.
$123 to CT with a couple bags of wood chunks. Thanks!

Mine is arriving Monday.

Make sure and pop Cynch for a $10 propane tank exchange, too.  And I apparently get a $10 Amazon card.

Signed up successfully, but got: "What a bummer! Cynch is not available in your area". Hope you get your share anyway.

I added a little stainless griddle to my gas grill this weekend.  Juiciest burgers that ever came off that grill.  Didn't take a pic of those, but here is yesterday's cheesesteak.

Side note: went to a restaurant a few weeks ago and chicken wings were listed as "market price" on the menu.  This week I noticed a wing place had a sign up that said "bar still open".  I assume that means they don't have any wings to serve.

If you're replying to a troll you are part of the problem.
I also need to follow this advice. Ignore or report, don't reply.

Ok folks some free/cheap digital content.   

First off, for xbox game pass ultimate members, you can get a free 1 month trial to Disney+   Wait until Thursday or Friday to activate this offer and you'll be able to finish off Loki as it's only 6 episodes.  If you don't have game pass you can get a 3 month subscription for a $1 and no, you don't need an xbox as it works for pc games as well.

https://slickdeals.net/f/15082966-xbox-game-pass-ultimate-members-1-month-of-disney-for-free?page=2#commentsBox

In preparation for Prime Day, Amazon is offering 2 months of trials to most streaming services for a dollar a month.  If you have any shipping/digital credits you can use them for that.

For you programmers and wanna be programmers, here's what is normally a very expensive programming book for free in digital format.

Folks over at my nintendo rewards they got the acrylic Zelda Skyward Sword art panel for 1000 platinum points.   These panels usually sell out within a day or two.   To get 1000 coins extremely quick just download animal crossing on your phone, link your social media accounts and do the tutorial.... should take all of 10 minutes and you'll earn 1k.

Another free one for the shoebox.  Itíll sit nicely next to my pile of sealed Xbox One games.

Got this by doing some 5 minute survey for Walmart.
