If you are using “Google Checkout” to save some money on your online orders at Buy.com this holiday season you might want to use this link to print your Buy.com sales receipts for you to send in those mail-in rebates. Buy.com offers quite a deal on some of their products if you use their Google Checkout service. With the Google Checkout normally the bottom line price becomes so attractive.

Once you navigate to the Buy.com link page you can search your Google order by one of these ways to print your receipt.

Hope it’s useful.

Amazon Customers Vote program is back, now with a Special Edition

In Breaking News, Deals, Gadgets on December 16, 2006 at 3:54 pm

You must be remembering the last time Amazon ran the Customers Vote program, it was a big hit and the products disappeared in no time. Now they are back with a Special Edition of the Customers Vote program.

This time the whole gist of it is a bit different. Here is a quote from Amazon on how it works.

Select the item that you want: the Sony PlayStation 3 (20GB), the Nintendo Wii, or the Sony PlayStation 3 (60GB). Then click the “Sign up” button under that item to get a chance to be randomly selected for the opportunity to purchase that item. Note:

  • Your Amazon.com account must have been created no later than 11:59 p.m. (Pacific time) on December 11, 2006.
  • You need an authorized credit card on your account.
  • The claim codes will be distributed only to randomly selected customers.
  • If selected, you are eligible to buy only the deal that you signed up for.

The sign-up process ends on Sunday, December 17, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time. Come back to this page anytime on Tuesday, December 19 (12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. Pacific time), to find out if you have been randomly selected for the opportunity to purchase the console that you signed up for.

Dates to remember:

  • Your Amazon.com account must have been created no later than 11:59 p.m. (Pacific time) on December 11, 2006.
  • The sign-up process ends on Sunday, December 17, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.
  • You have to visit this page anytime on Tuesday, December 19 (12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. Pacific time).

I’ve signed-up for the “incredibly hard to find” Nintendo Wii console. Last time when I tried for an XBox 360 console the site was slow enough to let me loose my bid. I hope this time there won’t be any competition for traffic.

Here is the link to the page.

Good luck and please leave your comments.

Google lets you register your domain for $10 per year with "Google Apps For Your Domain" feature

In Breaking News, Deals, News, Tools on December 15, 2006 at 11:57 pm

Last August Google announced the availability of “Google Apps for your domain”. Here is a quote from Google of what the “Google Apps for your domain” feature is.

Google Apps for Your Domain lets you offer private-labeled email, IM and calendar accounts to all of your users, so they can share ideas and work more effectively. These services are all unified by the start page, a new addition to this service, a unique, dynamic page where your users can preview their inboxes and calendars, browse content and links that you choose, search the web, and further customize the page to their liking. You can also design and publish web pages for your domain.

Until now the feature was only available to the people who already own a domain, who wanted to add Google Apps to their domains.

Now surprisingly Google added a new cool feature to it that lets people who don’t yet have their own domain to register new domains for $10 per year. Google has partnered with GoDaddy.com and eNom, two leading domain registration services, to offer domains for $10 per year. And what’s further cool is that it includes “private registration”. Private registrations helps protect your personal information by not publishing your private information to the Whois database.  

Make use of the service here.

Week 2 of Amazon Customers Vote Program

In Breaking News, Deals, Misc on November 23, 2006 at 3:13 pm

We saw how quick the 1,000 XBox 360’s went off on Week 1 of Amazon’s Customers Vote program. I think it wasn’t even 4 minutes before it said that it’s sold out. I tried my best but couldn’t get one.

Now is Week 2. Not so great of things when compared to Week 1. Here is what they have for week 2.

To me, the Amazon Prime Membership looks cool. I might vote for that. What would you vote for?

On how to vote to get these items at these low prices, check out my previous post.

Go…vote for it…and let’s get the best of every week’s items at these low prices.
