$100 iTunes Code For $80

Black Friday 2015 has come and gone but there are still deals to be found.

Like this one I just stumbled across on eBay — a $100 iTunes Code for $80.

$100 iTunes Code for $80

$100 iTunes Code for only $80 – Email Delivery in Gift Cards & Coupons, Digital Gifts | eBay

Yes, I’m suspicious as well. But the source is, according to the eBay page I’m looking at right now, PayPal Digital Gifts. eBay owns PayPal. So, you know, there’s that. So why would Apple let them sell $100 iTunes Gift Cards for $80, which is literally like getting free money? (Assuming you want to spend that money in the iTunes store.) I have no idea. Caveat buyor, as we say. But this appears to be legit.

One thing from the comments — you may not get the code right away. This comment amused me: “The description says delivered within minutes. I guess the definition of minutes is loose because technically a year is 525600 minutes…” (Cue Seasons Of Love from Rent.)

To be fair, the item description does say that it could take “up to 24 hours” for the code to show up in your email Inbox. BUT the intro text does say, “Delivered in minutes (Exceptions apply)”. As of this writing, they’ve sold 142 codes in the past hour. Hit the link below for the deal. And happy Thanksgiving!

How To Find The Clean Version On Spotify

I’m trying out Spotify Premium on my Sonos and so far I love it. I want my kids to have good taste in music, or at least be able to introduce them to bands that they wouldn’t otherwise experience. Regular radio — top 40 — stinks, with very few choices and far too many songs by Ke$ha. I don’t want to force my taste onto my kids, but I do want to share my musical interests with them. Spotify Premium is a good way to do this without buying every album or downloading stuff illegally. Of course, not everything I listen to is free of dirty words. I’m no prude, but sometimes I’d prefer to have the kids listen to the non-explicit version of an album. So how to find the clean version on Spotify? Read more »

Watch A Captain America Movie From 1944 For Free

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be in theaters on Friday, April 4. But if you want you can watch a Captain America movie from 1944 for free, thanks to the good folks at the Internet Archive.

Captain America - 1944 Serial

The film, an old black and white serial, runs 25 minutes and 16 seconds and is titled Captain America, Chapter 1 (1944). It stars Dick Purcell as Captain America, aka Grant Gardner (more on this in a moment), Lorna Gray as Gail Richards, Lionel Atwill as Doctor Maldor (think he might be a bad guy with that name? He also wears a monocle), along with Charles Trowbridge and Russell Hicks. The description from IMDB is as follows: Read more »

Get This Deal Before Somebody Notices

It’s Cyber Monday! Deals deals deals! (Conspicuous consumption, OK, not great, but it’s better than “Black Friday All Week!” which is impossible because it can’t even be FRIDAY all week.) This deal has been out there for awhile but we thought today was a good day to tell you about it.

Amazon Autorip - Good Price

 

Here’s the deal. It’s a little sneaky.

Amazon has this thing called “AutoRip”. You buy a CD, and can then immediately download an MP3 version of the album. Cool stuff. Very handy. Saves you from ripping the thing yourself.

But I don’t want CDs, you say. I’m a purely digital guy/gal/haven’t yet made up my mind.

Ah, sayeth I. Ye of little faith. Would we steer you wrong?

What would you say if I told you you could have the CD AND the MP3 version of the album for less than the price of the MP3 version alone?

Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix

Jimi would say, “That’s cool.”

Yes, ladies, gentlemen, and those who have yet to make up their minds. (That’s a line from Kinky Boots, a great Broadway show. Go see it. Buy the soundtrack. Just be.)  Amazon is indeed selling many of your favorite CDs for less than the price of their digital versions, while giving you a digital copy for free.

Free!

Here is the current pricing of Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix.

Amazon Autorip - Good Price

Such a deal!

See that?

Poke around Amazon’s music store and see what you find. I recently bought a bunch of James Taylor CDs, and I think all but one of them included a free MP3 download for less than the cost of buying the MP3 download alone.

If you don’t want the CD, you can, give it to someone else or use it as a coaster. You’re saving money even if you never crack open the plastic. I look at it this way — I get the high quality audio of a CD and the immediacy and convenience of MP3 for less than the cost of the MP3 alone. Did I mention that? I think I did.

Enjoy. Here’s a link to that Hendrix album to get you started.

Electric Bike Giveaway (Not From Us)

The extremely nifty Whit Honea is a big fan of electric bikes from a company called A2B. Luckily for someone, Whit has arranged for a giveaway. That’s right. Somebody is getting a free electric bike. (But not from us. Just so we’re clear on that.)

The always great GeekDad has the info, but they’re not doing the actual giving away. From their site:

The awarding of the Giveaway prize is the responsibility of A2B and not GeekDad. The winner will be contacted by the author of this post (Whit Honea).

So now you know. Hit up the link below for details on how to try and win this thing, along with Whit’s well-written review. (I’m feeling alliterative today. Probably because I keep watching Agents of SHIELD repeatedly, which makes me think about comic books, which makes me think about Stan Lee, who loves the alliteration. None of that has anything to do with the electric bike giveaway.)
