Sharing Something With You

Do you look for bargains, sales or discounts when shopping? With today’s economy, it pays to shop wisely no matter what you’re looking for.

This isn’t a book or writing-related post today, but something I wanted to share with all of you. Though this blog has always been about books, writing and such - you know from time to time I veer off a bit.

That’s what I’m doing today. I’m always delighted when I can pass along good books or helpful information to y’all. Today I’m passing along a discount from a major online retailer. I’m sorry to say the discount is only available to residents of the U.S. I keep hoping I’ll run across a giveaway or some type wonderful promotion that is open internationally, but not yet.

The deal is recently contacted me about providing a
discount to you, my wonderful visitors, as well as to myself. Now honestly I’ve never shopped at, but have seen their ads on TV and it seems lots of people enjoy shopping there.

They offer a vast array of items. If you're looking for new" rel="nofollow">bookshelves to house your favorite books, there's all shapes and sizes; if you enjoy coffee, there's" rel="nofollow">coffee makers of various brands and colors; looking for a special Valentine's Day presents, there's" rel="nofollow">gift baskets; maybe you're expanding your work area and need" rel="nofollow">office furniture; or what about some new" rel="nofollow">table lamps to enhance your reading? These are just a few suggestions of the hundreds of items they feature.

Here’s how it works: you use the discount code 121745, which is good for 10% off Overstock products (excluding movies, books, and electronics). The discount code never expires, however, it can only be used once per e-mail address. Since this excludes electronics, there is a free shipping promo code you can use if you’re purchasing electronics. That code is 202234.

Now this is not an endorsement by me for purchasing items from This is just my way of passing along a discount that has graciously offered. You don’t have to be a follower of this blog or do anything special in order to use the code. Just enter the code when you checkout at There are times when new items for home and family are needed and other times things are just wanted. Hopefully this will help a little either way.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday. Our temperatures are suppose to be in the low 60s today, but you never know. I’m planning to get caught up on reading the blogs I’ve missed the past couple of days and also get a review ready for Sunday Salon. Not sure where all the time has gone. How about you? What are your plans for today? Anything special or just relaxing and enjoying a good book?

  1. Yes sadly, I do look for bargains/sales and discounts wherever possible.

    Yet saying that, it is not a bad way to live ones life. Money is a rather precious commodity these days.

    And the discount from doesn't apply to New Zealand. Bugger.

    Great post nevertheless :)

  2. Mason - Thanks for passing along this discount. It's always helpful to know where one can stretch one's money a bit :-), especially in this economy.

  3. Mason thank you for sharing this with us!! Anyone who clicked to read obviously loves discounts!!
    My favorite thing? That you didn't make us "jump through hoops" to get it! THANK YOU!

  4. now, who doesn't like discounts :)

  5. Thanks for sharing the discount code with us.

  6. Thanks Mason. Since I gave up the full time job, I'm more interested than ever in saving my pennies.

    I'm in catch up mode, too, this weekend. Lost most of the week to a bad bout of flu so I'm behind in everything. But I'm purely envious of your low 60's. Still all ice and snow here.

  7. Mason, what a great thing! I recommend Overstock all the time and am thus far very pleased. What I suggest, however, is to look at the reviews of the other buyers before you purchase. It's never failed me.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Wendy, looking for sales and discounts can sometimes be a fun thing. I keep hoping I'll have the opportunity to offer something international.

    Margot, I'm all for stretching our money.

    Caren, no hoops for this. I did think about a secret handshake but decided against it. :)

    Dez, I'm hoping everyone will.

    Dru, you're welcome.

    Linda, hope you're feeling better. The flu just likes to hang on for awhile. Don't know if we'll make it to the 60s today, but at least we have some sunshine. Feel better.

    Teresa, I've seen their ads and thought about some of their items but haven't tried them yet. I like the idea of checking reviews, that does help.

  9. I rarely pay full price for an item, and like to make the most of my money. So thanks for the link, I just clicked over and browsed around, lots of great merchandise there :)

  10. Thanks so much for the code for the discount. That is terrific. I will certainly go look and see if there is anything I just have to have.
    It is supposed to be in the sixties here today too so we are planning on some outside activities.

  11. Sure - I'll check it out! Thanks, Mason.

  12. I've never shopped at Overstock either. But I do hate to spend money, so perhaps I'll browse around and see what they have.

  13. Thanks--I shop at Overstock frequently and I'm sure I'll use this code!

  14. I have shopped at Overstock and been pleased. Thanks for the discount code.


  15. I'm a major (no wait let's make that MAJOR bargain hunter. I haven't been to the *O* for awhile, but thanks for sharing the discount code!


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
