Have you ever wished there was a site that gave you links to free trials, coupons, and other special deals as they become available? If so, you are in luck, because that is what MidAtlanticGranite is designed to do. The site was born out of the notion that while there are plenty of great discounts that can be had online, it is often too time-consuming to hunt for them all. Our goal is to save you not just money, but time that you might otherwise be spending to find the best deals possible.
Each week, we will be making at least one post that covers an area that we think our web visitors may be interested in. The articles will mainly focus on online shopping, as this is, after all, a website and you are already online as you are viewing it. With that said, the specific topics we plan to focus on are:
1. Online Dating
This has become a multi-billion dollar industry that keeps getting larger and larger. This is good in the sense that it gives consumers plenty of choices. But too many options can also turn into a disadvantage. Years ago, your only choices may have been Craigslist and Match.com, but today, you have 10 times as many sites, not to mention other choices such as speed dating and using dating apps. We will try to help clear the air and find you not just the best dating sites, but also the sites that give you free trials and the best coupons.
More and more, software is becoming something you buy online and use over the internet using cloud technology. Everything from Adobe Photoshop to Turbotax now come in online versions. This makes it all the more important for you to find free trial software and coupons so you never pay full price. Software on the whole is expensive, so you should strive to find the lowest prices possible, and we will share with you some strategies that will help you do just that. Even if coupons are not available, you can usually get a minimum of a 30-day trial, which will allow you to test-drive a program and be sure it's the right one for you before you make a purchase.
Health is arguably the most important thing in life. Without it, almost everything else would become a lot more difficult. Where health is concerned, the Internet can be like your best friend. Not only can you Google symptoms, but you can also read about drugs and natural remedies from excellent sites like Healthline.com. The voluminous amount of information that is at your fingertips is something that quite frankly, people of past generations simply did not have access to. But are you using the Internet to its full potential? Unfortunately, most of us are not. We'll help you change that by providing you reviews of health food stores and other information to make you better at finding useful health information online.
And don't forget, if reading articles isn't your favorite thing to do, you can also catch numerous videos on Youtube, posted by health professionals. For example, the video below provides excellent information about supplements for building muscle.
We need money to do most things in life. The only way to have more money is by making more or saving more. Your income may be limited by your profession or other life circumstances, but the good news is that there are always clever ways to save money. We will be sharing information on how to get things for free online, and also give you access to coupons you can use to get the best bargains possible when you shop online. Online coupons are often overlooked by many consumers, but you should always search for them before completing a purchase. You could easily save up to 30% off a product or service by spending a couple minutes looking for an online coupon.
As you can see, our website addresses a diverse number of subjects that may be of concern to you. But we are also open to suggestions, so if there are any topics you want us to talk about, or any products you would like us to review, be sure to reach out to us using our email form.
To the extent possible, you should always try to get the best deal possible on office expenses. Products such as ink cartridges can be rather pricey, and if you don't routinely hunt for the biggest bargains, you stand to lose hundreds of dollars a year in added expenses.
My favorite way to purchase ink at the moment is to use online office supply stores. The best one I've found to date is Inkjetsuperstore, which specializes in selling just ink cartridges and other accessories at discounted prices.
One thing you should never do if you want low prices is to buy OEM cartridges. While it's true that such cartridges are usually the most reliable, once you find a good vendor like Inkjetsuperstore, you no longer have to buy just OEM cartridges. Instead, you can pick remanufactured cartridges to save money. In some cases, compatible cartridges (manufactured by companies other than the original equipment manufacturer) are also a good choice. Either of these cartridges will save you several dollars on your purchase, and over the course of a year, your savings can become quite significant.
There is also the issue of web coupons, such as the ones you can obtain from sites like this one - http://inkjetprinterdiscounts.com/inkfarm.php. While most people are familiar with paper coupons, not everyone is aware that you can get the equivalent online. Online coupons allow you to use a special code to grab some extra savings. In most cases, all you need to do is write down the code or copy/paste it into the shopping cart, when you are asked to enter the code.
Many e-cigarette users favor the larger batteries, as they provide a longer battery life and give you more options on how to vape. But there are also a substantial number of use that use the smaller batteries for a variety of reasons. As for myself, I like the smaller batteries because they are less conspicuous and easier to take around. I also think they look better than the larger batteries which are, in my opinion, too large and cumbersome.
There is, however, a challenge for people who favor small e-cigarette batteries, and that is that the smaller batteries on a whole tend to be inferior. Most notably, they will run out of power very quickly, and heavier e-cigarette users may go through 2 of them in a single day.
I've therefore long searched for the best small e-cigarette battery and have tried at least a dozen different kinds. There are two batteries that I found to be excellent, and they are Halo's G6 and Smokeless Image's Volt. Personally, I use mostly Halo Cigs at this point, since I like the design the most. But both of these batteries offer a long life and sufficient power for the automatic batteries so that it does not take much effort to draw some vapor.
Cartomizers similarly vary quite a bit in quality. For those on a budget, the standard Kanger cartomizers may be sufficient. I myself prefer the Halo G6 cartomizers, as they seem to last longer, and deliver flavor more effectively. Halo batteries and cartomizers can both be purchased at a discount using Halo Ecig Coupons, which are currently available from E-cigbargains at the URL: http://e-cigbargains.com/halocigs/.
As you can see, Halo is currently my favorite e-cigarette company, wih Smokeless Image being a close second. I suspect this may change over the years, but for me, the search for the best small e-cig battery manufacturer is over for the time being.
Today, there are many different kinds of contact lenses. For the most part, you would not use hard contact lenses unless you have a certain condition that makes it necessary. Most of us, therefore, will need to choose between the different soft contact lenses that are available. You generally have 3 options:
Monthly Contact Lenses
This type of lens needs to be replaced every month. I particularly like the Night & Day brand, as they are very comfortable. However, there are many other excellent choices. Note that this type of soft contact lens is generally the cheapest, so unless you have reason to select a different type of lens, I would start by using monthly contact lenses. You can get most brands quite cheaply by using online stores such as AC Lens, and by using AC Lens coupons when available from the shopping site, VisualDiscount.com.
The second type of contact lens are the bi-weekly kind, which as you probably know, need to be replaced every other week. You need to pay a bit more attention if you use these kind of lenses, as it's pretty easy to lose track of when to replace your lenses. I would recommend putting a reminder on your calender every other week to change your lenses.
Daily Disposable Lenses
Daily disposable contact lenses are becoming quite popular, despite their high cost. These lenses will be the most comfortable, and they are also very convenient since you simply throw them out every night and open a new pair the following day.
The easiest way to order lenses in my opinion is to use online vendors. There are many you can choose from, but the store I like most is AC Lens. They offer just about every type of contact lens, and their prices are very reasonable. If you haven't ordered contact lenses from AC Lens before, I recommend you give this store a try.
These days, a lot of businesses can get away without doing much printing. That's because so much of what we do takes place on the Internet. But there is little question that traditional, offset printing is still needed for many businesses. A postcard, for example, is often the best way to reach local customers. And if your business has any kind of waiting room, brochures can do a lot to market your business. Even if you don't have any of these needs, you'll still require business cards, and an impressive business card can sometimes do wonders for you and win your more business.
It naturally follows, then, that you should find a good printing company to work with. Some amount of trial and error may be necessary before you find a company that is both easy to work with and reasonably priced. More and more, it may make sense to use an online printing service, and many people have turned to such companies for their printing needs. Companies like Vistaprint, for example, have become quite notable and this company is even featured in nationwide commercials.
But my personal favorite for now is Printplace. On the whole, I find this company provides a more personal level of service, and their products seem better produced to me. Unless you have some unusual printing needs (such as pens or T-shirts), you should find that Printplace can handle all of your business printing requirements. Prices are also affordable on the whole. I like to use this Printplace coupon code from http://hotprintingdeals.com to get the best deal out there.
Extras you can get at Printplace include 1-day rush service and file repair services, which is a good thing to order if you are a new designer or if there are potential problems with your artwork. The service is only $25, and can save you a lot of money by ensuring that your file is properly prepared before it's sent off to be printed.
As I indicated earlier, for a long time, I relied on AC Lens for my contact lenses. But that doesn't mean that time to time, I look for other stores to try out. Prices online are very changeable, and it's thus important to constantly compare prices with other vendors. The fact that there are dozens of contact lens stores online doesn't make the process easy.
The other day, I came across a nice contact lens store called Lens.com. I don't know how this store flew under the radar for me in the past, as it seems to be a pretty significant online store. Like most other contact lens stores, it carries almost all the brands you would ever need. In my case, I found my Acuvue lenses in no time, and realized it was selling less than what I'm used to paying for them. As for ordering, the process is similar to the process used by other contact lens sites. You need to provide prescription information and the name of your doctor, and the site will do the rest, including things like verification.
If you just buy a couple boxes, the prices at Lens.com are similar to what other sellers charge. The real savings kick in when you purchase four or more boxes. That was not a problem for me, since I always try to purchase a one-year supply of contact lenses, since I don't like having to reorder, which is quite frankly just another hassle as far as I'm concerned. In addition, buying more at once means you only have to pay for shipping one time. At Lens.com, in fact, if your order is over $129, your entire order is shipped free, which is a nice benefit.
But the really big savings come from using online contact lens coupons. The Lens.com coupon codes I use ( which you can get from this link: http://couponleaf.com/lens-com-coupon/ ) give me discounts of up to 25%, depending on the volume I buy. Given that the savings you can get at Lens.com relies so much on how much your order, I may get together with family members who wear contact lenses and try to time our orders, so that we can place both of our orders at the same time. By doing this, we'd be able to take advantage of the most generous Lens.com promo code out there at the time.
Regardless, Lens.com is a great store with very low prices, and I intend to use them quite regularly in the coming years - that is, until I find another seller online with better prices.
In my very first post, I mentioned that one of the things I'll be talking about is software. While it's debatable if video games count as software, today I would like to discuss a bit about video games since it's a huge industry, and many people spend quite a lot of money on this hobby.
I won't get into the debate about whether or not video games are a waste of time, and whether or not they are a good thing or not. The fact is, everyone seems to have an opinion on the matter. It's also true that while people have decried video games for over a generation now, I haven't seen any huge societal degradation as a result of them. As far as I'm concerned, they are just a good form of entertainment for many people who would otherwise lead boring lives. But that's all I'll say regarding that matter.
Today, I'd instead like to focus a bit on the cost of video games, which I consider to be a bit over the top. Seriously, $59 for a newly released game seems to be a bit much to me. But what's worse are the subscription games that charge $15 a month. You may think $15 is not that much, but keep in mind, you're paying $180 a year for each such game that you subscribe to.
Are there any ways to play video games for less money? It turns out there is, and the answer may lie with an online service called Gamefly. I myself only learned about this service a few weeks ago when a friend mentioned it to me. Apparently, they let you borrow games over the Internet, and send them to you via snail mail, which usually takes a two or three days.
After learning about Gamefly, I immediately went online to check it out. They have two levels of service. The first one, which costs $15 a month, allows you to borrow one game at a time. The second one, which costs $23, allows you to borrow 2 games at a time. I think that for most people one game at a time is probably enough, but you do have to choose wisely, since you don't want to receive a bad game then have to send it back, which just leaves you without a game to play for up to a week. I should mention that there is also a Gamefly free trial from a site called Free Trial Spot.com which lasts for a month.
One good thing I learned is that Gamefly allows you to keep the game as long as you please. This is important, since we all know how addictive certain games can get. The worst thing in the world is having to return a game before you've had your fill playing it. It's good to know that this won't be the case if you use a service like Gamefly.
