Get Quicken for half off now through 3/18/2013

Posted on 14 March 2013 by David

Link: 5 Days Only: Save 50% on select Quicken products! Ends 3/18.

Whether you travel or not, you need to manage your money.  Quicken is perhaps the only real tool for managing your money that doesn’t force you to keep your financial data in the cloud (but you can if you want to).

If you already use Quicken and have been thinking of upgrading this is a great time as this 50% off deal only happens once or twice a year!

If you have a Mac, I would suggest getting the PC version instead of the Mac one. The one for Mac does not have the full feature set of the PC versions. Just run it in Parallels, VMWare, or CrossOver.

I bought it, I use it, I like it.

Canon S100, Save $200!, compact w/ DSLR features

Canon S100, Save $200!, compact w/ DSLR features

UPDATE 11/27:  If you missed it for $229, it’s still on sale by Amazon for $299.  Mine just arrived today BTW.  =)

I have been eyeing Canon s100 since my S95 broke and now it’s on sale for $200 off.  I just bought one so I’m alerting you all to this deal as well.  Use this link:
Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Wide-Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Black)

Why this a good deal

Most places like B&H Photo sells this for $429 and that’s on sale. Amazon has it for $229!  Get it before it’s gone.

Why I like the Canon S100

I love the control of a DSLR but it is not feasible to carry one everywhere so I have been looking for a replacement to my old S95 that offered as close to manual control as a DSLR. i had been happy with the S95 so I moving on to the S100 would be a good next step since it’s essentially a reimagined s100 with better capabilities. I would suggest you taking a look at DPreview’s review of the Canon s100 for an in-depth review.

I have been wanting to create a list of deals I find useful but never got around to it.  Today I’ve stopped procrastinating and created a page on this site where I (or we I should say!) will be putting up deals that we find worthy of sharing.   I’ll keep it relatively small so only those that I think are useful on a frequent basis will be posted there.

I’ll still use this “Top Deals” category for those deals that require a bit of explanation or time sensitive information.

But for just plain links to some deals that can save you some money, go to our “Travel deals and discounts we like” page!
