SUPER-COUPONING: Don’t forget the fine print | Lifestyles



Jill Cataldo

Dear Jill, I was making a purchase from a store. There was a promotion on the webpage offering a 10% coupon for my next shopping trip if I purchased online with store pickup. I did this. After I went to the store to get my items, they said I did not qualify for the coupon because the fine print said the store pickup had to be paid in full online.

This store allows you to either pay for your store pickup online or pay in-store when you arrive. I thought because I had to go to the store in the first place, I would just pay when I got there. When I got there, they pulled up the webpage. It was true, buried in small text, that only orders paid for online would get the coupon.

The only reason I chose store pickup was for that coupon. I don’t think

Cardi B’s stunned by ex Offset’s epic birthday gift – as fans urge ‘don’t take him back’

Cardi B’s estranged husband Offset pulled out all the stops with her birthday present this year – despite the pair no long being together.

The WAP rapper was in complete shock when she pulled up to Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip to find a huge portrait of herself emblazoned on a towering bilboard.

“Oh my goodness, Oh my God!” repeated Cardi in the Instagram clip, as she celebrates her 28th birthday today.

The impossible to miss bubblegum pink advertisement featured a huge messaging reading ‘Happy Birthday Mommy, love Kulture’ – the couple’s two-year-old daughter.

The accompanying photo showed Cardi and her girl wearing matching designer pink outfits complete with scarves, Birkin handbags and sunglasses.

Revealing the pricey gift on Instagram Cardi appeared to be flattered as she responded; “Thank you sir, I love it,” but then followed this

‘I just don’t want Trump for another four years.’ Are working-class white women going to elect Biden?

Nicole Peyton sat out the 2016 election because she didn’t like President Trump’s behavior and believed Hillary Clinton was “tarnished.” But this year, the “conservative-leaning” homemaker plans to cast a ballot for Democrat Joe Biden.

“He would be a better option. Anybody’s better” than Trump, said Peyton, 31, who dropped out of college to have her first child. Trump is a bad example for her five kids, she said as she picked up pizza for her family’s dinner on a recent Friday.

Whether women like Peyton decide to back Biden could determine who wins critical battleground states such as Michigan — which Trump won by 10,704 votes, or 0.23% — as well as Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. The demographic denoted by pollsters as white women without a college degree overwhelmingly supported

If you’re ready to downsize — especially with jewelry — don’t forget to try selling at pawn shops | Home/Garden

Orderliness is a blessing you leave your children. Which is how I wound up this week in a pawn shop.

For the record, I had never been in a pawn shop. I assumed they were for other people: gun traders, drug addicts, gamblers, those seeking bail money or who were otherwise down on their luck ― not that I haven’t run out of luck myself from time to time. But there I was, in my tailored blouse, good haircut and sensible pumps bargaining with a pawn broker as several closed-circuit cameras looked on.

Christine Gerardi got me into this. You may recall, a few months ago, I wrote about Gerardi, a jeweler who came to my home and helped me sort my jewelry. Besides giving me permission to let go of some dated costume pieces, Gerardi bought some gold jewelry I no longer wore for their melt value. (Huzzah!) During

You’ve been given the gift of time on iOS 14 changes. Don’t waste it.

Apple has delayed the rollout of its new tracking rules to “sometime in 2021.” 

This is great news for the app developers and publishers who were scrambling to get ready for the big switch, whereupon users must grant explicit permission in order for apps to track them and store their data. It was set to be – and still will be – a massive blow to the app makers who rely on high-value, IDFA-targeted ad placements as the primary source of revenue. 

But rather than sit back and breathe a sigh of relief and twiddle your thumbs for the next few months, this is the time to sit up and get busy. 

We’ve written about the 5 things that publishers must do to adequately prepare for the changes, and those basic steps of course still apply. (For a more detailed list and guide, go here.) After those steps are complete,

‘Shopping around is impossible when you don’t have a computer’

Christine Chapman was helped by her brother-in-law Stephen Harris

With little more income than the state pension, Christine Chapman is careful with her money.

The 70-year-old keeps paperwork meticulously in a filing cabinet and knows what is coming in and going out.

Her bills were cut by hundreds of pounds a year, simply by switching insurance, phone and mobile suppliers.

It all sounds like an advert for competition and the benefits of shopping around.

But Mrs Chapman was lucky.

Misplaced trust?

The widow, from County Durham, does not have a computer and does not know how to operate one. Her smartphone is only used for calls and messages to family and friends. She had no way of shopping around for better deals.

What she does have is a caring brother-in-law who taught IT and, after a conversation at a family gathering, realised Mrs Chapman

Footballers don’t ‘wear bras’ – sporting reasons for under-shirt clothing explained

If you watch a lot of football and pay close attention to a team, you will have noticed that many footballers are now wearing under-shirt garments that, to some, resemble a sports bra.

It’s not a bra they are wearing though – it’s a highly sophisticated piece of technology that is designed to aid players and their clubs in their physical development, ensuring they perform at an optimum level.

So, in case you’ve been confused and were wondering what exactly players were wearing, Goal brings you everything you need to know.

What is the ‘bra’ device that footballers wear?

The vest that footballers wear under their jerseys (and sometimes over them when in training) is a piece of equipment which holds a GPS tracking device.

Information and statistical data about the player’s movements are recorded by the device and then fed through to a software dashboard which can be accessed

Biden Beauty Is A Real Thing, We Just Don’t Know From Who

From ELLE

Just when you thought 2020 had no surprises left, Biden Beauty enters the chat. The latest beauty venture isn’t associated with presidential nominee Joe Biden himself, although he and Harris have reportedly given the mystery brand their seal of approval, according to Fashionista. Instead, it’s backed by a mystery figure with a political agenda.

And while the civically-minded wizard behind Biden Beauty is masked, its intentions are not: Beat your Face. Beat Trump. The brand is launching Biden Beat, a dual-sided beauty blender that sells for $20.20. Biden Beauty is also debuting sweatshirts, tote bags, buttons, and pins adorned with the candidate’s name and the phrase “America Is Beautiful.” More beauty products are set to drop in the coming weeks, with all proceeds benefitting the DNC and Biden/Harris campaign.

“Beauty has always been inherently political,” a spokesperson from the brand said in a statement. “From the beginning of

Dianna Martinez started her business, the L.A. Garden, with a lightbulb moment — literally. Three years ago, her father taught her how to grow a pothos cutting in a lightbulb, which became her first product and sparked a whole line of ideas that three years later has turned the L.A. Garden into a thriving business and staple at art fairs and farmers markets around town.
