I just placed an order at diapers.com and they sent me a code for new users-- type MRST6960 as the promotion code on your first order (the catch is that your order must include diapers) and you'll get $10 off. And I'll get $5 off my next order for the referral, so it's win-win!

Obamazda?

I can't stop thinking about the commercial Terry and I saw the other night. It was for a car dealership, and toward the end we heard something like, "come on in to test drive an Obamazda." And we both looked at each other since we did in fact hear the same thing.

And we both thought it was bizarre that the dealer was somehow trying to jump on the Obama bandwagon and somehow associate his cars with the president. Maybe if they were "green" cars paid for by the stimulus plan or something there could be a correlation, but there was no reason for it as far as Terry and I could tell.

But then we saw the end of the commercial that had the dealer's name in writing at the top of the screen. While the way it was phrased did seem to suggest the dealer was trying to associate his cars with the president, it wasn't blatantly gratuitous since the dealer was perfectly justified in advertising what we thought were Obamazdas.

The dealership is called Charlie Obaugh Mazda. Terry and I laughed ourselves off the sofa.

Frontgate $100 Coupon Code

I just saw this in Monday's WSJ (12/1/08, page A6): if you spend $100 at Frontgate.com and enter code CM811 at checkout, you'll receive a gift coupon for $100 to use on the site via email within two weeks. Here is the link to the details. You've got to place your first order by midnight PST 12/8/08, and use the coupon by 3/31/09.

Frontgate tends to have more expensive stuff, but not necessarily overpriced. There is a foam water float lounge I've had my eye on, and if I could essentially get TWO of them for $100, it's pretty compelling. I'll have to check the site to see if they're still available, it was of course summer when I first thought of them.
