Just go to and enter the coupon code HOT12 and it will apply the 12% discount.  Travelocity says that this is only Valid at qualifying hotels (it should say "promo code eligible") and this coupon code expires November 30, 2013.

It's just amazing how the internet has changed travel bookings and reservations! It has been more than 10 years since I dealed with a travel agent because I do all my bookings online.

Free Can of Pepsi Next

Hi folks,

Pepsi is giving away a free can of Pepsi Next. You just need to go to and "spin" the wheel, and then enter your name and address info to get the free Pepsi.

Hi and Happy New Year everybody! This is my first posting for 2013 and I wanted to share with you some amazing freebies from the fine folks at

Amazon is giving away the digital mp3 download of Coldplay's hit song "Clocks".This is one of my favorite songs and yes, it is absolutely free for a limited time only! Get it at    ***Freebie for the Coldplay song "Clocks" has expired, but you can still get the free Downton Abbey episodes (see below).****

If you need some serious British drama, or just want to start watching a new tv series in the new year, then you can watch free episodes of Downton Abbey through Amazon's video service.

The free ones are:
Season 1, Episode 1-
and Season 2, Episode 2 -
They're free to watch through Amazon's digital streaming video, and both are in High Definition too!.

Kind of coincidental that both of these Amazon freebies are British, but they do offer other music and shows that are non-British. Just check their "free" section on a daily basis.
