Free Money for Making Reservations

Free Money for Making Reservations

Hello Everyone,

You all know how much your Discount Queen loves to save money, but I love earning FREE money even more.

One of my favorite things to do is to dine out with friends or family. However, before I just show up at a restaurant I always check OpenTable, first. This site lets you make reservations for free at 1000’s of restaurants around the USA.

Every time you make a reservation you will earn 100 points. There are some restaurants that reward you with 1000 points if you dine during their “off times.”

Once you earn 2000 points you are able to exchange your points for $20 dining certificate. However, you don’t have to redeem the points for the certificate when you get to 2000 points. You can let them keep accumulating. 4000 points are $40, 5000 points are $50, and so on.

This is a wonderful and FREE way to earn FREE money.  How could anyone turn their back on this wonderful opportunity.  So, next time you are looking to dine out, make sure to make  reservation via OpenTable, first.


Today ONLY Groupon Deal White House Anaheim


Thanks to a special deal from Groupon you can dine at the world renowned White House Restaurant at a fraction of the normal cost.

This classy restaurant is normally *very* expensive, but for today only through Groupon you can purchase a five-course dinner for two for ONLY $127.00.  Normally, this dinner would cost $250.00 without the Groupon.

This is a hot deal, and should not be passed up.  If you purchase the Groupon today it can be used anytime up to 180 days from the date of purchase.

According to Groupon’s site the Anaheim White House—is even popular with presidents. Jimmy Carter has enjoyed the California restaurant’s Italian food and steaks, as has Danny De Vito. (Even Madonna has feasted on their catering.)

Below, some highlights of the A-list restaurant:

Historic location: A mansion originally built in 1909, the structure has undergone renovations since then, but certain details, like the main dining room’s brick fireplace, remain intact after more than a century.

Dining Rooms: 12 in total, named after White House icons like Ronald Reagan and the West Wing. Some are bedecked in murals worthy of the Sistine Chapel; all of them can be reserved for private dinners.

Cuisine: An assortment of Italian dishes, like linguine with clams, along with Wagyu steaks and unconventional creations. The most unconventional of all? The New York Times-endorsed steamed salmon with white chocolate mashed potatoes.

Chef Bruno Serato emigrated here with $200 from Verona, Italy. When he got here, he worked his way up from lowly server to innovative chef.

Charity work: Serato makes a point of feeding homeless children, given his own humble beginnings, and he’s won awards for his commitment to the cause. More importantly, he’s fed one million children with his efforts through his Caterina’s Club foundation.

So, be sure to go to Groupon NOW before it’s too late to purchase this great deal!


Plus-Size Gals Rejoice with Gwynnie Bee


This post is for all plus-size ladies. I feel your pain when it comes to shopping for stylish looking outfits in extended sizes. First of all, many stores still carry styles that look like they could be used as drapes or tablecloths when not being worn. Secondly, many of the stores that carry plus-sized clothing “hide” the department up on the second or third floor in a back corner, as if extended-size clothing was something illegal like heroin or cocaine. Lastly, some of the manufacturers say the clothing is “plus-sized,” but the clothing is not cut correctly and is really “skinny” clothing with more flow.

Thanks to Gywynnie Bee plus-size ladies who wear from sizes 10-32 can all rejoice. Now you can rent gorgeous and stylish outfits for reasonable prices every month. Plus, if you love the outfit you can purchase it at a discount!!  Right now Gwynnie Bee is offering a 30-days for FREE. You can choose the 1, 2, or 3 piece plan, and get this plan for FREE for 30-days. There is NO OBLIGATION and you can cancel (very easily) online, if you decide not to continue.

What makes this site stand out from all the other is that Chic Star “partners” with up and coming designers.  ANYONE can submit a fashion design (skirt, dress, pants, etc).  If Chic Star thinks the design has potential they will put the design up on their site and LET THE PUBLIC VOTE for the design.  The “winning” designs are then then produced and sold on Chic Star.

The best part about Chic Star is they carry sizes to please both women who wear plus sizes and and misses sizes.  The reason the site is being highlighted here is because Chic Star offers unique fashions at EXTREMELY reasonable prices.  They’re sale section has items starting at only $10.00, and many of the fashions are under $50.00.  Keep in mind these are not your typical “off the rack” outfits.  These are “designed” by fashion designers who are trying to get their fashions out to the general public.
