Seizing Great Opportunities…

Sorry for the lack of posts lately!  I just wanted to let you all know that I have been offered a very HUGE opportunity that will be taking up most of my time starting today, and therefore I will not be able to do any posting on Hooked on Bargains :( .  Please know that I am not leaving the blogging or money-saving world, but at this time I need to keep all details strictly confidential.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!

“To improve the golden moment of opportunity, and catch the good that is within our reach, is the great art of life.” – Samuel Johnson

Disney Movie Rewards – 3 Points!

Wow!  Currently, you can go here and log into your Disney Movie Rewards account (or register if you haven’t yet) and enter the code SURPRISE for 3 points!

If you’re unfamiliar with Disney Movie Rewards, it is a great rewards program, especially if you buy Disney movies, CD’s, or go to the theatres often!  Every time you purchase a qualifying Disney DVD or CD or go see an eligible Disney movie at the movie theater you earn points (found inside the Movies or CD cases or on your ticket stub). Once you’ve earned enough points, you can then redeem them for a reward!  They have lots of different rewards available, including fun toys, bikes, movies, and lots more for your kiddos!

(Thanks, Savings and Stewardship!)

Can you believe that I JUST went to Toni & Guy yesterday and paid full price for a hair cut/highlight and then woke up to today’s Austin, TX Living Social deal!?  Regardless, I LOVE their salon and if I’m ever needing a serious hair cut or color job, I always go to Toni & Guy!  They do a great job and I feel that my hair looks good for so much longer than going to any other salon!  If you’re needing a hair cut, you may want to get in on today’s Austin, TX Living Social deal!  You can snag a Haircut, Style, and Conditioning Treatment with an Art Director 1 at any of the 3 Austin locations for ONLY $30 (reg. $75)!  Great deal!  This would make a great gift too…Mother’s Day is just around the corner! ;-)

Currently, Best Buy has the LEGO Batman game for the Wii priced at only $9.99!  Plus you can choose in-store pick up to bypass all shipping charges!  This same game sells for $16.99 on Amazon and $19.99 at Target, so this seems like a pretty good deal!  This would make a great birthday gift or Easter basket filler for the LEGO lover in your life!  By the way, we own this game and my 3 and 5 year old boys LOVE it! :)
