Hey, I hope you guys are all doing well. I had a great Thanksgiving with your families. I had almost all of my kids were home. One of our daughters and granddaughters wasn’t able to make it, but they’ll make it up for Christmas. Thanksgiving was a wonderful time for all. We enjoyed a visit with my daughter and son in law who are in Norway now while she’s working on an awesome engineering ship project. They flew over, so we got to see them at Thanksgiving too. So it was a great time. Unfortunately, we had a member of our team passed away here on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, and I mentioned it here on the air with Mr. Jack Heath. You might not be as familiar with her. She never had anything really to do with our podcast, but she was the person behind All of my radio broadcasts in the New Hampshire area. And she was there for me when I did live shows, remotes, and everything. Just the most amazing young lady passed at much too young and age. It’s just crazy. You know, I think of her as a kid, but I did a little math, and she was probably about 35, which I know some of you are saying, yeah, that is a kid. But man, it sheds light here on the holidays. My heart goes out to all of you guys and gals as well, who have lost a loved one during these holidays. Anyhow, a couple of tips, gave some websites that I recommend to Mr. Heath, and we also got into this whole travel Tuesday thing a bit. So here we go with Mr. Jack Heath.
Speaking of cyber Monday, we have our tech talk guy, Craig Peterson joining us now. Good morning, Craig.Good morning. Man. How quite a shocker. I got a note from Tim. The weekend about Aaron and my heart goes out to her family, and the whole WGIR family, of course, the entire IHeart family. I’ve known her for man. She must have been, what 15 years or so. Yeah. And of course
Man, quite a shocker. I got a note from Tim on Friday about Erin, and my heart goes out to her, and the whole we’re family, of course, the whole IHeart family. I’ve known her for man. She must have been, what 15 years or so. Yeah.
And of course on your weekend show Tech Talk. She would do all the weekend shows with people like you, our movers and shakers. The weekend news, of course, in the Mark Hebert show, you know, she worked during the week to get all these shows, put together.
Yeah, absolutely. And she would be there too on the weekend. If I was doing a live show and the board OP wouldn’t show up. It was Erin who was there. Man, just a shocker. My heart goes out to everybody. Well, hey, listen, today is a big day. It is Cyber Monday, but I want to point out something else that I recently learned about myself. That is Travel Tuesday, and it is tomorrow. We’re expecting the best rates of the year for airline flights, coming up tomorrow. We’re expecting to see some of the best deals of the year come tomorrow. If you’re looking to fly, basically, anytime after the first of the year or the first six months. Come tomorrow pretty much the airlines out there, so take a look at those if you are looking to travel. You’re also if you’re going to be shopping not just today but over the next few weeks and during the holidays. There are some sites you probably want to pay attention to price grabber.com is a good one. Bizrate.com as well PriceGrabber, so check those out. And even if you’re not buying on Amazon and by the way, Amazon does not necessarily have the best deals out there. Walmart has been very competitive, but check out the products on Amazon. So you can look at some of the reviews. And if you’re somebody who wants to get into this, you might want to check out slick deals.net slick deals.net has a very active community online forums devoted to one thing, getting deals, or deals excuse me, whether it’s a retail store or online. One more that I had on my show before used to be called eBay to it’s now called Rakuten (R-A-K-U-T-E-N). If you sign up with Rakuten, they will pay you cashback every time you shop online through participating retailers, and that’s places like Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s, eBay, Kohls.
You’re right, by the way. Rakuten has a ring to it because when Justin used to professional wrestle, they called him Rasputin.
Okay, that’s right. He’s the old man with a beard. And he can’t kill him pretty much from the top. I saw that Disney movie I know what it’s all about.
If you get like 100 bucks on Rakuten, what do you get? You get like five dollars for shopping. Is that what they are saying?
What they do is every quarter, they will send you either a check cashback once every three months. Or, you know, if you’re spending 100 bucks, you might get $5 back. It varies based on the site that you’re purchasing from, but you’ll start getting that cash right away. And they’ll also be deposited for you if you don’t want to check if you’re one of these newfangled kids. You can get deposited right into a PayPal account.
That’s like, oh, when you hear someone. Oh, I went to this sale, and I made money. No, you spent money. Alright, thanks. Thank you guess how much money I saved. Thanks, Craig Peterson, thank you again.
