Freebies for Kids with Dion’s Club Read

Comments Off on Freebies for Kids with Dion’s Club Read

Dion’s Club Read is a great way to encourage kids to read, because they get FREE gifts in return… and maybe a chance to be Orbit’s guest at Isotopes Park!

The Dion’s Club Read program is for for preschool to 5th grade kids, running till July 25, 2014. The program is a partnership between Dion’s Pizza and the Albuquerque Isotopes, so it has a baseball theme – what’s not to love?

Here’s how it works: Pick up a scorecard brochure at a Dion’s location, or download it from the Dion’s Club Read website. After a child reads any six books of their choice (or it’s fine for parents and teachers to read books to youngsters who are still learning to read) they fill in the scorecard with the name of the books and they’ve hit a home run! The completed scorecard earns the student free gifts and a new scorecard. The child receives a different free gift for each scorecard they fill:

  • The prize for the First Home Run (the first scorecard of six books read) is a free backpack and an official Club Read T-shirt.
  • For the Second Home Run (the second scorecard of six books read) the child gets a ticket voucher to watch an Isotopes game, a coupon for a free small drink at Isotopes Park, and a new book.  They also get entered into a prize drawing.

The prize drawing is to win tickets to be Orbit’s guest at the Isotopes game with four Club Level seat tickets, plus a Dion’s Pizza, a Dion’s $20 gift card, and an autographed baseball. AND the child can make a ceremonial first pitch! How cool is that? If this doesn’t encourage kids to read, then I don’t know what will!

The Dion’s Club Read program is for preschool children through 5th grade, and it runs until Friday July 25, 2014.

All the Dion’s locations and details on how the offer works are in the brochure on the Dion’s Club Read webpage.

Free eBook: Stuff About Money, Advice for Regular People

April 11, 2013 by  
Filed under Books, Freebies

Comments Off on Free eBook: Stuff About Money, Advice for Regular People

Free money management and financial advice bookGet Craig Guillot’s book Stuff About Money: No BS Financial Advice for Regular People at the link as a free Kindle book (or read it on your computer) until April 12.

My journalist colleague Craig Guillot had the brilliant idea to write a practical book about money management that we ordinary people can understand (cut out the jargon!) with tips from financial professionals on everything from real estate and retirement to insurance and savings. The book offers quick and relatively easy-to-do ways to boost financial security, one step at a time.

Usually the book costs $14.99 for the print edition or $9.99 for the eBook, but you can get a free download of Stuff About Money: No BS Financial Advice for Regular People for Kindle now through Friday April 12, 2013. Or, if you don’t have a Kindle, downloaded it to your computer or other mobile device, using Amazon’s free app at the link.

The freebie offer is in celebration of Financial Literacy Month, and it’s for two days only, on April 11 and 12, 2013.

I’ve read this book and I have to say it’s very straight-talking, sensible, and realistic. It aims to give some peace of mind and confidence about managing your money for a healthy financial life. It includes a section on “Why you should track your net worth no matter how little it may be.” My net worth is probably in the region of $7.48, although if I count Mr. Cheap as an asset, it may rocket into the double digits.

Of course, some assets are priceless 😉

–Tania FYI I’ve given you my Amazon affiliate link for the free Kindle book download.
