…Movies don’t have to be expensive?

Movie Theater

I love summertime movies, but with ticket prices quickly approaching a Jackson, and popcorn prices making you rethink the switch to ethanol, it’s quickly becoming harder and harder to justify the cost.

However, with a bit of planning and some smart savings, Consumerist can show you nine different ways to save at the movies.

From movie ticket coupons and drive-in revivals to bulk ticket purchases and reward programs, it’s a helpful and easy to use guide to saving a few bucks.

…MacHeist is back?

MacHeist II

MacHeist is back, and it’s (supposedly) better than ever.

If you enjoyed the Hubert hunting, dollar saving, developer screwing experience of the last MacHeist, then definitely check out this year’s version, as I’m sure it’ll be much of the same.

The source of the controversy following last year’s event was the fact that it raked in over $800,000 for those running the show, but then supposedly gave back developers (many of whom were small time, independent developers) only $5,000 per application.

Will this year be any different?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

…Price Protectr wants to save you money?

Price Protectr

Many stores (Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Office Max, Sears, Target to name a few) have a policy where you can receive cash back if they lower their price within 30 days of your purchase, but most customers have no idea. Price Portectr want to change that by making it easy to keep track of changing prices and potential savings. When you buy something online, simply enter the URL of the item into their site, and they’ll email you if the price drops within 30 days. It’s a great way to get a little extra cash back, and it’s free, so you’ve got nothing to loose (except 30 days of worrying weather or not you got the best deal).
