Free SiriusXm internet radio for 1 year!

How do you listen to the radio, talk shows, or music while you travel? I usually use my iPhone or a dedicated mp3 player walking around, gym, during flights or in the car.  The downside is I have very limited music on my devices.  Currently, SiriusXm is giving away free 1 year of their service.  Act quickly because I have no idea when this will be pulled.  You don’t  even need a credit card to get this.

How to get the service:
1. Click here. You should see that it’s free for 365 days. If not, click here and replace the promo code comebackq32012 with CHEVY1YR
2. Fill out the information.
3. a) Go to to listen on your computer
b) Go download their app on your Andriod, Iphone, or Blackberry.

That’s it! Hope it works for you.

My experience with UBER

Uber is a company that allows you to hail car service straight from your smartphone. You download their app, create an account, and using your phone’s built-in GPS the car service will come to where you are.

This week I was in NYC in the evening and had a chance to finally try their service out. I took the Long Island Railroad out to Penn Station. Once I got there I couldn’t find any TAXI (cheapest option out of few other car types they have available). So I walked to my destination. Later that night when I had to go back to Penn Station, I tried the app again. This time I was able to see 2 TAXIS. I clicked on the set location and request pickup. Even though I saw that there were 2 TAXIS available, it kept returning that no TAXI was available! I tried about 10 times and received the same result each and every time.

My initial experience is not too great. I am hoping someone from UBER will contact me and we can discuss what might have happened and what they can do to make things better and help their company grow. Hopefully, I will have a part two of this edition soon.

$6 per movie tickets at Regal Theaters

One thing I really love to do when I’m not traveling is to relax and watch a good movie.  But you know what? It’s too expensive to watch movies nowadays in the theater!  If two people go in NYC, it’s at least $24.  You take a family of 4 and that’s $48!

I got a treat for you.  Geico has a program called “Geico Privileges”.  Through their free program you can get 4 Regal Theaters tickets for only $6/each!

Free $5 McDonal’s giftcards

This promo was available last year and I am going to do this again.  Currently, American Express is having a promotion where if you sync your qualifying AMEX credit card to your Twitter account and make a purchase of $5 or more, you will receive a statement credit of $5.

What I did last year was go to McDonal’s, purchase $5 giftcards and then receive $5 statement credit back.  I did this for all my qualifying AMEX cards.  If you decide to do the same, you will need to create an Twitter account for each card and sync each one.

Here is the promotion

Offer Valid 9/10/12-10/31/12 in store. Offer excludes McDonald’s locations in Walmart Department Stores.

Receive a one-time $5 statement credit when you spend $5 or more 1 time in store at McDonald’s by 10/31/12. Tweet using #AmexMcDs to add this offer to your synced American Express Card. This offer does not require a coupon at the point of sale. Once you receive an “@ reply” message from our Twitter handle @amexsync that the offer has been added to your synced Card, just shop with that Card to redeem!

Offer Terms:

To be eligible to receive the statement credit:

(i) you must have an American Express Card that is synced with Twitter (see for more details on how to sync your Card);
(ii) you must Tweet using #AmexMcDs;
(iii) you must receive an “@ reply” message from @amexsync stating that this offer has been added to your synced Card; AND
(iv) you must use your synced Card to make a single purchase of $5 or more in store at McDonald’s by 10/31/12.

You must receive a confirmation Tweet from @amexsync stating that the offer has been added to your Card before you can redeem the offer. This confirmation Tweet will begin with your @username and will appear in your Mentions tab on the Connect page. These terms will be available to you via a link in the confirmation message. If you do not receive an @reply message about this offer from @amexsync, please Contact Us or direct message us at @AskAmex. Offer not valid at McDonald’s locations in WalMart Department Stores.
Registration is limited. Limit one (1) statement credit per Card across all American Express offer platforms. Statement credits are generally issued within 3-5 business days after your qualifying purchase, but may take up to 2 billing periods to post to your account. If American Express does not receive information that identifies a transaction as having occurred at this merchant, the transaction will not be eligible for the offer. Program Terms and Conditions apply; click here for details.
