Return your Boston Public Library Book fine-free for First Three-Weeks in November

The Boston Public Library is launching a campaign for the first three weeks of November to encourage people to return overdue books back to the Boston Public Library. From now until Thanksgiving, simply head to the library and return your library book(s), CD, or DVD without any fines attached! If an item is permanently lost, you would only need to pay replacement costs instead of any late charges. So grab that very late library book, and bring it back to the shelf fine-free.

For more information, please visit here.

Free $10 eGift Card to Restaurant.com with Facebook Offer

Are you familiar with Restaurant.com?! It is a website where you can buy vouchers to local restaurants and you receive a certain amount off. You do need to read the fine print beforehand before selecting from a restaurant on their list. For example, last week I used a restaurant.com voucher for $25.00 I had previously purchased. I had to spend at least $37.50 to apply the $25 eGift Card at the restaurant on food only and I couldn’t combine it with any other coupons.

Restaurant.com is a great way to explore local restaurants and splurging on a special occasion or any day without feeling too guilty!

To receive this offer, you just need to like Restaurant.com on facebook here and enter your e-mail address. You should receive this $10 eGift Card within 24 hours! Where and how are you going to spend your $10 eGift Card?!
