Centrum MultiGummies Multivitamins review

Centrum MultiGummies MultivitaminsI don’t like to swallow pills of any sort, and the larger they are, the less I want to swallow them. Although I feel the need to take a vitamin supplement at my age, I don’t do so consistently because most of the multi-vitamin supplements I’ve tried in the past are rather large, so I usually wind up settling for chewables.

About a month ago I received a free bottle of Centrum MultiGummies Multivitamins. I’ve tried gummy vitamins in the past and I like gummy bears and gummy fruit snacks, so the I gave them a try.

The bottle contained a mix of three flavors, berry, cherry and orange. My preference was the cherry, although they were all good. According to Centrum, there are no artificial flavors, which probably explains why each flavor wasn’t particularly strong. They didn’t seem to have that slight vitamin flavored after-taste that I get from some other gummy vitamin products I’ve tried, and while soft with a tendency to stick to the other gummies in the bottle, they didn’t stick to my teeth. As gummy vitamins go, they weren’t bad at all.

As for the vitamin content, each serving of 2 gummies contains the following:

  • Vitamin A – 4,000 IU
  • Vitamin C – 30 mg
  • Vitamin D3 – 400 IU
  • Vitamin E – 40 IU
  • Vitamin B6 – 1.6 mg
  • Folic Acid – 300 mcg
  • Vitamin B12 – 10 mcg
  • Biotin – 150 mcg
  • Pantothenic Acid – 6 mg
  • Iodine – 80 mcg
  • Zinc – 5 mg

Overall, I liked these gummy vitamins and would try them again. If you would like to give them a try, you can print this coupon for $2 off Centrum Gummy Multivitamins.

Burger King says zero price item isn’t free

Burger King menu board

This menu board at a Rock Hill, SC Burger King advertises a zero dollar King Deal that wasn’t free.

I always thought a zero priced item means the item is free. Apparently Burger King disagrees.

On the morning of June 25, 2015 I walked into a Burger King restaurant on Cherry Road in Rock Hill, South Carolina and noted a section on their menu board which stated “King Deals starting from $0.00”. On further inspection I noticed a listing for a Sausage Burrito with an advertised price of zero dollars and zero cents. When I inquired about it I was told that the price was incorrect. When I pointed out that it was officially posted on their menu board at the advertised price, I was informed that it was a pricing “download error”.

Well, that may or may not be true, but error or no, if the price of an item it is publicly displayed on their menu board in their restaurant, as far as the customer is concerned, that is the price. If isn’t the actual price, and the management refuses to honor the price that advertised on the menu, isn’t that considered false or misleading advertising?

I think so, and so did the customer ahead of me who also tried, and failed, to get a Sausage Burrito for free, as the menu board implied. Apparently Burger King disagreed.

I asked the manager why he wouldn’t honor the price on the menu when the item was posted as zero dollars and zero cents. I could hardly believe his response.

Hear his surprising answer to my question in Episode 6 of The Free Stuff Show Podcast. We’ll also discuss why we think his response was not only incorrect and perhaps even a little bizarre, it was also poor customer service. Do you agree or disagree?

Free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime

I do quite a bit of shopping on Amazon. I can find just about anything I’m looking for at Amazon.com, and at amazingly low prices. The only issue is the shipping. Although some of the items I purchase qualify for free shipping, many of them do not, and the free shipping is ground only, so if I need it right away, it’s not always an acceptable option.

Then there is Amazon Prime. For only $99 a year, I can get all the 2 day shipping I want, plus unlimited access to Amazon Prime movies, music e-books and more. However, I still have to pay an annual subscription fee.

However, I signed up for a Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial. All I had to do was sign up and I got a FREE 30 day trial period with full access to Amazon Prime, This includes:

  • FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items and no minimum order
  • Instant access to Amazon Prime Video and streaming of over 40,000 movies and TV shows
  • Unlimited, ad-free access to Amazon Prime Music and over a million songs and hundreds of playlists
  • Access to Amazon Kindle’s Lending Library and access to over 500,000 e-books
  • Free unlimited photo storage with Prime Storage

I did have to provide a credit card, but I wouldn’t be charged a membership fee until the end of the 30 day period. I watched the clock on it, and just before the end of the trial, I cancelled my trial subscription and no fee was charge. I received 30 days of Amazon Prime absolutely free!

Important: you do need to stay on top of the calendar with this. They will bill you for the $99 annual subscription at the end of the trial. However, as long as you remember to log in to your Amazon account and cancel your subscription in time, you won’t have to pay it.

Of course, if you like Amazon Prime, go ahead and pay the $99. Considering the unlimited 2-day shipping, unlimited access to Prime Movies and TV Shows, music, e-books and photo storage, it’s a really good deal. Even if you use only a couple of Prime features, it is well worth the price. But don’t take my word for it, Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial yourself. You can’t beat that.
