Winc Wine Product Review

I initially posted about being chosen to promote Winc Wines here, and since then, have created my account, taken the survey, and received my four wines.   The entire process was easy from start to finish.

The Winc website is easy to follow, and the survey questions are designed to help you get the best of your subscription.  You can choose 2 white/2 red, or change it to suit your taste.   You can get a special offer on your first order from U.S. Family Guide – make sure to get your code here.  This website helps you save $22 off your first at: http://www.trywinc.com/usfamilyguide

The four wines they chose for us were perfect!  I ordered 2 reds/2 whites, and one the whites was a sparkling white and was the winner of the night.  That California sparkling wine was called “Finke’s Widow.”  Simply yummy.  The two reds were Chop Shop and Tempo Vero.  They were smooth, and sweeter than most reds, and perfect for my palate.  The white we all loved was a Central Coast California Wine called “Zwicker.”  I also had credit and ordered an extra white called “Brethren of the Road” Riesling but because they did not choose it for me, I found this Riesling to be very dry and not sweet.  Lesson learned– let them pick the wines for you based on the survey you take at the beginning, because it helps narrow it down and send the best wines for your palate.

All in all, I was impressed how quick the wines were shipped, and delivery, although they said I needed to sign for it, and I did not, so don’t get alarm by the FedEx E-mail.  And I did not have to go out to shop for wines that would suit my palate and dishes we cook – it came right to my door!   The prices at Winc are very reasonable and shipping is free if you do your monthly delivery of 4 wines.  It’s a great deal and I enjoyed the four wines picked for me.  You can cancel Winc subscription at any time.

Don’t forget to enter your promo code for $22 of your first month, my readers simply go to: http://www.trywinc.com/usfamilyguide  and get  started on a fun flavor adventure!    Cheers to you all!

Her best friend Victor (Nat Wolff), an imaginative but exhausting boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own – to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But – there’s a catch, Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Maddie Ziegler) and her wicked mother Régine (Kate McKinnon). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Carly Rae Jepsen) who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.

LEGO #Brickfest Live – everything was awesome!

If you are a Lego(c) lover like my kids are, you simply must find the time to find Lego #Brickfest in a city near you.  We checked out Denver’s #BrickFest at the Merchandise Mart on Sunday, August 13, and the #brickfest was fun – like past years there were lots of activities and plenty of stations to use your imagination and build.  The girls and

I also enjoyed trivia, which was something new this year for us. They handed out a ton of prizes for answering LEGO trivia questions correctly.   The girls enjoyed building a giant mosaic, and being part of that – it was Darth Vader this year, and doing mosaics of their own to put up for the world to see.

Like previous years, the kids enjoyed building cars and racing them.  There was so much to do and see, and build with, one four-hour session did not seem like enough, but here’s to next year’s #Brickfest.  We will be there.  If you can, catch one in a city near you. The tour schedule is posted here. We had a lot of fun and it was not crowded at all on Sunday, the last session, so the lines were short, and the kids could do activities they loved multiple times.  Everything was just awesome!

Groupon Coupons & Ebates- a better way to shop

Recently, because I do more on-line shopping, I have signed up to get notifications from sites like groupon, and ebates and use all the sites together.  I have found that if I am going to buy something anyway, if I check on-line sites like groupon and coupon sites, and use them in conjunction with Ebates, I get money back and discounts for things I am going to buy anyway.

But, I did not know that groupon had a coupon site to sites or stores where you are shopping anyway like Target, Walgreens, and so many other stores.  Even your cell phone carrier may have a coupon on groupon coupons.  I have promoted AT&T wireless before, and groupon has a coupon site for AT&T and other carriers as well!  Go here and you can search for your favorite stores on Groupon Coupons.

So, if you are going to shop for things anyway or buy new mobile devices, you might as well use groupon and groupon coupons.  I also double my benefits by making sure my laptop and phone has Ebates active (learn more and sign up here for Ebates), for all purchases I make at groupon, and the stores/sites that groupon provides coupons and deals for.  What a great way to save some money while shopping for the things you need.  Sign up for Groupon here and check out all of Groupon’s coupons and if you want to sign up for Ebates, use this link and we both get money back.
