Bookmark and Share 

It’s almost time for our reader’s favorite fashion bargain event ~ the Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale featuring Sharon Young’s latest winter resort collection. 

 Sharon Young Sale February 2018

This direct-from-the-designer sale actually takes place inside the clothing manufacturer’s warehouse (February 1-3) and features thousands of fashion pieces all at deep discount prices. 

This huge sale only opens its doors four times a year, and everything is marked down 50% to 75% OFF retail.  They have sizes to fit just about anyone ~ from petite to women’s sizes and everything in between. Much of my wardrobe comes from this sale, and I can’t begin tell you how many people ask me where I shop ~ ladies, this is the place.

Stay tuned! We’ll pop over to the sale in a few days to give you a sneak preview and post some “Insiders Scoop” pics and info so that you’ll know what is in store before you go.

In the mean time, save the date ~ February 1-3, 2018 (Thursday to Saturday). 

Details, details
When: February 1-3, 2018 ~ Thursday & Friday, 8:00AM to 7:00PM and Saturday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM
Where: 10367 Brockwood Rd ~ Dallas. You’ll see yellow signs directing you where to go (or just follow all the ladies you will see!).
Important to know before going: There is a large dressing room area provided if you want to try on all your wonderful finds, but typical of women’s fashion warehouse sales, it is ladies only but not private — you likely want to keep this in mind when choosing your undergarments : ). Since this is a women only event, husbands, guy-friends and kiddos under 12, please stay comfortable at home.

Enjoy and Share! :)

15 Tips to Avoid Storm Damage Repair Scams and Other Rip-Offs

Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by the most recent tornadoes and storms. Please pass along this vital information, as sadly there are scam artists attempting to take advantage of an already difficult situation …

storm damage fallen tree

The last few weeks of storms wreaked havoc on much of North Texas, leaving damage and destruction of vehicles, homes, property, and more. To avoid another disaster at the hands of scam artists, be sure to use caution with these useful tips from Fort Worth’s Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the FTC:

Avoid Home Contractor and Repair Scams

  1. Check with your insurance company first to determine your home and repair coverage and filing requirements; keep their contact information handy.
  2. Be leery of door-to-door workers or telephone solicitors who offer home repairs, inspections, heating/cooling services, or speedy insurance processing.
  3. Shop around for contractors. You may need to make temporary repairs, but permanent repairs made by a contractor should be the result of multiple work bids and contractor research.
    Require written bids that clearly identify the project’s materials, associated costs, labor charges, as well as the timing of work including the beginning and expected completion dates.
    • Be sure that the bids are comparable.
    • Do not pay in advance for any work and do not pay in cash.
    • Get references from the contractor’s past customers.
    • Check out the contractor’s history with the BBB and relevant trade association(s). Always research a business with the BBB before you sign any contracts.
  4. Require copies of all contractor licenses, permits and liability insurance prior to any work commencing.
  5. When work is complete, be sure to get a notarized statement that all sub-contractors have been paid in full to avoid a contractors lien on your property.
  6. If you have an HVAC repair, allow heating/cooling units to be cleaned out and dried before determining what, if any repairs are actually needed.

Steer Clear of Vehicle Damage Scams

  1. Similar to home repairs, shop around for a quality vehicle repair service. 
    • Require written bids that clearly show the repair parts, associated costs, mechanic labor charges, as well as the timing of work including the beginning and expected completion dates.
    • Do not pay in advance for any work and do not pay in cash.
    • Get references from past customers.
    • Check out auto mechanic’s history with the BBB or business review sites like Yelp.
  2. If you are shopping for a used vehicle, look for signs of flood or hail damage like rust, mud, watermarks, discolored upholstery, mismatching carpet or a musty odor.
  3. Request a vehicle report based on the VIN to check for past reported auto damage of any kind.

Protect Yourself From Charity & Financial Solicitation Scams
Take the following precautions to make sure your donation benefits the people and organizations you want to help.

  1. Ask for detailed information about the charity, including name, address, and telephone number.
  2. Get the exact name of the organization and do some research. Searching the name of the organization online — especially with the word “complaint(s)” or “scam”— is one way to learn about its reputation.
  3. Call the charity. Find out if the organization is aware of the solicitation and has authorized the use of its name. The organization’s development staff should be able to help you.
  4. Find out if the charity is trustworthy by contacting the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving AllianceCharity NavigatorCharity Watch, or GuideStar.
  5. Ask if the caller is a paid fundraising company. If so, ask the name of the charity they represent, the percentage of your donation that will go to the charity, how much will go to the actual cause to which you’re donating, and how much will go to the fundraising company.
  6. Learn the basic signs of a Charity scam and more ways to protect yourself at the FTC’s helpful online guide.

Help stay clear of all scams by using the free resources at the Better Business Bureau.  Be sure to check out all businesses and charities online or by phone (800)-621-8566.

If you find yourself a victim of poor workmanship or a scam artist, immediately contact the BBB to try to recover your investment or alert others about the business or individual(s) involved. Consumers or small business owners victimized by a scam can learn more or file a complaint at fwbbb.org.

GREAT DEAL For Coffee Conisseurs — $19.99 For Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker & Permanent Filter

Amazon has a GREAT sale happening today on top rated (4.5/5 star user ratings) Bodum Pour-over coffeemaker with permanent filter for $19.99 (31% OFF MSRP).

Bodum made its name as making one of the best French press coffee makers, and they continue their reputation with this fantastic pour-over, slow brew design.  We love everything about this little maker —  from the beautiful sleek design to the ease of being able to put everything in the dishwasher, including the filter.

Secret sauce buyers’ tip The coffeemaker comes in a lot of colors and 3 sizes, but not every color or size is on sale.  Amazon inventory and prices change frequently, but at the time of this writing, the 34oz. black, red, and white versions were all marked down to $19.99.

Here’s what’s in the box:

  • Includes a permanent stainless steel mesh filter; no paper filters or capsules needed, and essential oils will not get trapped in the filter
  • Mouth-blown borosilicate glass container and silicone protective sleeve
  • Completely dishwasher safe 
  • Bodum Model #11571-01

There are lots of great Bodum deals to be found with this sale, too.  I hope you find just what you are looking for! : )

Enjoy and Share! :)

THROUGH MONDAY — 7″ Kindle Fire Bundle $79.99 — Save over $104 OFF a Kindle Tablet, Protective Cover, Extra 2 Year Warranty & More!

This Kindle bundle deal has been so popular with our readers when we mentioned it in the past, that when we discovered the bundle would be upgraded to the full-featured 7″ 16G Kindle Fire, we wanted to be sure to let our readers know! Note that Amazon is targeting this bundle towards back-to-school parents & their kids, but this is the full-featured 7″ Kindle Fire that —  purchased by itself — normally retails for MORE at $84.99 (and by itself, you don’t get all the nice bundled freebies added into this deal)Here’s the full scoop…

LIMITED TIME — Amazon has their Kindle Fire for Kid’s Bundle at a DEEP discount — just $79.99 (a savings of over $104). The bundle includes 1.) a full featured  7″ 16GB Kindle Fire wi-fi tablet with camera ($84.99 regular price)  2.)  an extended 2-year accident protection that protects against drops or spills (valued at $19.99), 3.) an ergonomic protective cover (valued at $19.99), and 4.) a 12-month subscription to AmazonFree time (valued at $59.88). This is the best deal available for the Kindle 7″ Fire!

“SECRET SAUCE” SAVINGS TIP:  Don’t let the “Kid’s Bundle” title detour you ~ this is perfect for teens and adults too! Although Amazon describes this as a “kids bundle” (and yes, it is great for kids), it’s also an excellent value for adults & teens since the same full-featured tablet, when purchased by itself sells for $84.99 (learn more here). Even if you don’t use the cover, it’s still a better deal to buy this tablet in the bundle price.


Features included in the 7″ Kindle Fire Bundle:

* Includes the 7″ Kindle Fire 16GB touchscreen tablet ($99.99 retail), an ergonomic protective cover ($19.99), & a 2-year extended warranty ($19.99).

* There are over 72,000 reviews on this powerful reader tablet & most reviewers give it 5 stars.

2-year worry-free guarantee: if they break it, return it and Amazon will replace it for FREE. No questions asked.

* 16 GB of internal storage. Add a microSD card for up to 128 GB of additional storage.

Unlimited, free access to 10,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games with 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited included

* Best-in-class parental controls allow you to manage usage limits, content access, and educational goals

* Power up a young reader’s vocabulary with features that offer hints for difficult words and let you practice them on digital flashcards

* Set reading goals and track progress with Kindle FreeTime.

* Lighter than a paperback and holds thousands of books

* Easily checkout 1000s of FREE e-books and magazines from the Fort Worth public library, too.
