LivingSocial -, 2 movie tickets for just $9.

I came across this exclusive link via an employer website. This is really great value considering you pay $9 for two tickets (each ticket can be upto $15 including the fandango charge). We recently watched a 3D movie using a previous such deal for just $10.50 ($9 for the deal + $1.5 additional) which would have cost us $31.50 instead. Pretty sweet.

Here is the link to todays deal - LivingSocial, 2 Movie tickets for $9.

Consolidate your United and Continental miles.

Good news. Even though the united and continental merger happened well over a year ago, they hadn't provided the ability to combine miles from the two different programs,untill now.

Take the following steps to log in and get to the transfer miles page -

Go to this page (or united), and enter your united Mileage number and password, as well as your Continental Mileage number and PIN(note that you need your pin and not the password).

Once you log in,you will see both your united miles as well as the continental miles on one page. I transfered over 100 miles from continental to united just to see if it works fine, and also for it to count as a transaction, so that this could reduce my inactivity period at continental.

This is really useful for me because i had about 20k miles on both, and now by combining these , i am eligible for a round trip ticket starting at 25k miles, and am already at 15k for the second one.

Trying out payperpost

I have been thinking of trying out payperpost for a while now. Finally signed up for it. Here is my random claim sentence - Think eggs, think nightmares.

Hopefully i will be able to monetize my blog a little bit now.

LivingSocial - $9 for 2 movie tickets via fandango.

In the past, i have expressed my concerns over whether sites like groupon or livingsocial will be big money spinners in the long run, while i still am not too sure about the huge valuation of a groupon, i cannot ignore the fact that every once in a while, there are some pretty good deals to be had.

One such is a set of 2 movie tickets via for just $9. You can use my referral link to buy one yourself at LivingSocial. Normally this would cost you about $24 ($11 each ticket + $2 fandango charge)

Never be shy to ask !

Happy new year to everyone. I hope 2010 was good for everyone, and 2011 will be much better.

One of my favourite places to eat is chipotle, i am constantly amazed at how i can get the same combination of ingredients and yet not get bored of eating it even after so many years. I guess its the freshness and flavor that they pack in their simple food - which makes it so fresh and tasty every time.

Chipotle is one place though, which never gives discounts, so i was pleasantly amazed when recently a newly opened chipotle sent us a "Buy one get one free" coupon which was valid till dec 31. A combination of being caught up in finishing work, holiday shopping and travel meant i could not go to chipotle before the coupon expired.

We finally ended up going yesterday, and for good measure i took the coupon along just in case. Me and desi girl got our generously filled, flavor loaded burrito bowls and when we got to the counter i see this cashier in not such a good mood - one part of me said "don't mention the coupon - he could end up insulting you for trying to use it even though it says valid till 31st in bold right up front" and that's what desi girl would have told me too, but i still went ahead and slipped him the coupon mentioning that i was away so couldn't use it earlier. He simply said "Fine, i wonder why u didn't use this before" and rang it up for us. So there - this was another case of getting something by asking for it, and not shying away.

That is one thing i believe in - be it finance or any other part of life, there is no way you will find out if you can get something from someone, unless you ask.
