Sam’s Club Offering Free Custom Father’s Day Baseball Cards

Has your dad ever wanted to star in his very own baseball card? Or maybe you are a dad who would like your face on a small collectable trinket to call your very own? On one day of the year, this dream is possible.

This year, Father’s Day falls on June 21, a Sunday. To celebrate it, Sam’s Club, in conjunction with Unilever, the makers of Dove Products and Degree for Men, is offering an opportunity for you to create a baseball card as a gift for your father or husband.

All you have to do is visit the page on Sam’s Club’s official website and fill in the card with a photo as well as a message. The card is then available to print right then and there from your home, or you could request for it to be printed for free at Sam’s Club’s Photo Center and can pick it up later.

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and the father freebies are flowing in!

We wish every dad and husband out there the best Father’s Day!

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.

Here’s a day specifically for all you pastry lovers. National Donut Day 2015 is right around the corner. This interesting event, which takes place on Friday, June 5, consists of most Donut stores around the US and Canada allowing every costumer who walks in to take one free donut of any flavor.

Most donut vendors, including Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, are participating in this country-wide event and are offering ANY flavor of your choosing, as opposed to limited options. The only obstacle now is… which flavor do you choose? The classic glaze? The delicious filled ones? Let us know which flavors are your favorite in the comments!

Also known as Apache OpenOffice, this suite of programs empowers you to create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics and more. You can also edit existing files created by Microsoft Office and other office suites with little or no difficulty. It’s also open source, which means it is free to download and use.

Zoho.com – Zoho.com is a web based system used for creating and managing documents, e-mail and projects for your business. It is available in a free and paid version.

Google Docs – Google Docs is yet another great way to make documents similar to OpenOffce.org. The link above will bring you to the Google sign-up page. Keep in mind that you will have to create a Google account or use a pre-existing one to access Google Docs.
