I received a Kids Bowl Free family pass for purposes of review. All opinions in this post, however, are my own.
I wanted to make sure you guys remembered the Kids Bowl Free program this year, since it’s a great one to add to your list of summer activities!
Just head to their site and select your closest participating bowling alley to register. Note: Even if you signed up last summer, you will need to register again for 2013. If you’re in Illinois with me, there are quite a few participating locations — including Fox Bowl in Wheaton, which is one of Mr. 10′s favorites because he took a kid’s bowling class there a few years ago.
Each week this summer, they’ll then email you a free bowling coupon for your registered kids. Coupons are emailed when you first register, and then every Sunday morning thereafter. (My welcome coupons showed up about 10 minutes after I signed up.)
Kids get two free games per day, up to six kids per family. You can also access your coupons at any time under your account on the Kids Bowl Free site, and you’ll need to print and bring them to your registered bowling center to redeem.
Adding an optional family pass
If you want to bowl with your kids, pay just $24.95 for a family pass that covers the whole summer. Or, just let them bowl and kick back with a good book, lol! Here’s the deal on the family pass, should you choose to add that:
The Family Pass allows for 2 GAMES of bowling per day, per adult family member, up to 4 family members all summer long! This one-time payment of $24.95 is great for older siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, and even a babysitter. Spend time with your children at the center this summer and have a blast. The family pass can only be used while bowling with the children.
Just enter the names of four adults and they’ll all qualify under your family pass.
Note that you’ll need shoes
When registering for Kids Bowl Free at your local alley, be sure to read the terms and conditions for that specific center, including age limits and times. Standard shoe rental rates generally apply, and the coupons will be usable during specific open bowling hours — which are usually fairly generous, but make sure you pick a center that meets your timetable and needs! You can also sign up with multiple centers if there are several nearby options to you, but will need to use a separate account and email address for each.
This is a great way to save money this summer, while also helping get kids out of the house and doing something physically active. Have fun with it!

Discount Million Dollar Quartet — plus CD sampler on select datesPosted by rachel in events, tickets
On December 4, 1956, a twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley to Memphis’ Sun Records. The rock ‘n’ roll musical Million Dollar Quartet was inspired by this famed recording session — the first and only collaboration among these legendary icons, each of whom had such a major influence on American music. This thrilling production brings audiences inside the recording studio with the four major talents who came together as a red-hot band for one unforgettable night, and features such enduring hits as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Great Balls of Fire” and “Hound Dog.” A hit on Broadway, Million Dollar Quartet was nominated for 2010 Tony and Drama Desk Awards.

Sam’s Club® Offers Free Allergy and Health Screening Event1
In-club screenings available to members and guests on Saturday, March 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
BENTONVILLE, ARK., (March 4, 2013) – An estimated 60 million Americans suffer from allergies,2 with more than 2 million school days and 4 million work days lost each year as a result.3,4 However, allergies can be easily managed if they are caught before they flare up. On Saturday, March 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sam’s Club helps members and guests to combat spring stuffiness by offering free allergy and health screenings at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (564).

Allergy screening/blood test for milk, eggs, pet dander (cats), mold, dust mites, wheat, ragweed, mountain cedar, Bermuda grass and Timothy grass.

- Body mass index (BMI)
“It can be difficult to tell the difference between allergies and a persistent head cold since symptoms such as congestion and irritated eyes are often similar,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam’s Club Health and Wellness. “Furthermore, as people age, they can grow out of allergies or develop new ones. Sam’s Club can help our communities sort through such confusion with free allergy and health screenings and on-site pharmacists who can offer advice on how to treat identified allergies.”
With more than 2.2 million free health and wellness screenings provided in U.S. Sam’s Club locations since 2010, Sam’s Club will continue to serve communities with free screenings every second Saturday of the month through October 2013. Free health screenings support Sam’s Club commitment to build awareness and provide solutions for healthy living to the communities served.

7-Eleven is holding $1.00 coffee Wednesdays in January and introducing a new blend — see press release below:
-Eleven’s Darkest Before Dawn or Anytime
Retailer launches darkest Brazilian roast coffee
with mid-week $1 any-size offer
DALLAS (Jan. 15, 2013) – To encourage coffee-lovers to try its latest, darkest roast coffee, 7-Eleven, Inc. is holding Dollar Coffee Wednesdays this month, when every size cup of coffee will cost just $1. The new Brazilian Dark Roast is the leading convenience retailer’s richest, most full-bodied coffee to date.
Made from 100 percent Arabica beans, this premium blend starts with mountain-grown coffees from Southwestern Brazil, then is roasted dark to create a rich and full-bodied taste.
“We take great measures to ensure that our coffee is of the highest quality,” said Laura Gordon, vice president of brand innovation for 7-Eleven. “Every batch is tested by ‘Master Tasters’ to make sure 7-Eleven’s coffee offers premium taste, texture and aroma. The Brazilian Dark Roast is another example of 7-Eleven delivering high-quality roasted coffee at a value price to its guests.”
During $1 Coffee Wednesdays in January, guests may try the new premium dark roast or create their favorite coffee creation in any –size of cup. The dollar coffee deal is valid all day every Wednesday in January at participating 7-Eleven® stores nationwide. All the coffee condiments choices – sweeteners, flavors and toppings – are included in this price.
7-Eleven was the first U.S. retailer to offer fresh-brewed coffee in to-go cups back in the mid-1960s. It proved an immediate success. Customers liked fixing their coffee the way they wanted it – choosing cup size, regular or decaffeinated, and adding sweeteners and creamers to suit their tastes. Today, 7-Eleven sells more fresh-brewed coffee than anything else – 1 million cups per day.
