I am so excited that I was chosen to participate in a head to head deal finding tournament. I was given $25 and I had to find deals posted on Brad’s Deals to spend my money on while getting the best deals. Shipping and tax do not count towards the totals per the contest rules. Here is more info.
My deals and my opponent’s deals will be posted on Monday and then voting will go from Monday to Wednesday. That is where you, my wonderful readers, will come in. Once I post the link for the voting, please vote for me/the deals I scored when I spent my $25.
If I win this round, I will then move on to the next round and receive $50 to spend on deals. There are 6 rounds in all if I make it all the way through. This is such a fun and exciting competition and I am having so much fun finding deals.
WISH ME LUCK!!!
Please check back on Monday when I post the voting link and help me win!!!

I have always wanted a pair of boots but living in Florida it was never necessity, only a splurge. Now I have my first pair of boots! I just have to keep my shoe obsessed daughter out of them! Shipping to the store was free and my order is already available for pick-up.
Item #2- Entertainment Book
Store- Entertainment.com- http://www.entertainment.com/discount/local_editions.shtml
Brad’s Deal Link- http://www.bradsdeals.com/deals/2012-entertainment-book-18-shipped-p94631.html
No code needed for 50% off regular price and free shipping
Original Price- $35.00
Shopping Cart Price- $17.50
Total Saved- $17.50 but MUCH MUCH more considering all the savings I will be getting with the coupons in the book!
There were many other deals I considered spending the balance of the $25 on but none would really save me as much in the end as the money I will save with the Entertainment book- especially for 50% off and free shipping! It will save me hundreds if not thousands of dollars on dining, entertainment, and more which means more fun, inexpensive outings with my family to create special memories. Plus, I will have to have my husband take me out to dinner using coupons from the Entertainment book while I wear my new boots!
Total Spent- $24.99 (I couldn’t have gotten much closer to $25 if I tried. Maybe I should by a new cellphone for $.01 on Amazon to use up the last penny. LOL)
Total Saved- $90
