Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day: Adobe Photoshop Lightbox 3 for just $89.99 with free shipping



Oh, I love you, Amazon.  <3

I design websites for a living (when I'm not writing for this blog) and I can tell you one thing with perfect confidence:  Adobe software is excellent, easy to use, intuitive and gives me the best results.  And it's also super-pricey.  Super-duper pricey.

This one-day Amazon Gold Box Deal on Adobe Photoshop Lightbox 3 is a major steal.  Dirt. Cheap.  It's $89.99 with free shipping for today, 2/29/12 only, or until it sells out. My guess is it will sell out.

This is the full-version software, not a watered-down educational package, good for PC or Mac, on operating systems Windows 7, Vista XP or Mac OS X.

This software will help bring out the best in your photography.  If you're doing any sort of desktop publishing involving photos, get it.  It received a 4 1/2 star rating out of 5 over 157 customer reveiws.

Get it today for only for $89.99 with free shipping, here.

12 oz. box of quinoa for....how much?

Amazon Mom is accepting new members again


The Amazon Mom program has been closed to new members for a while, but it's open again. You get three months of free Amazon Prime shipping, but unlike the old program, you can no longer earn extra months of free Prime shipping for purchasing baby items. You still get an additional 20% total discount on diapers and wipes, so if you're a Mom or Dad of a young baby, this free program still hold value.

The new Pesach Deal Alert badge

The end is near! The end of the month, that is.


Even with the extra day, February came and went much too quickly.

Here's your reminder that the end of the month is nigh upon us; tomorrow is February 27, which means we can look forward to some new coupons popping up in the changing of the (coupon) guard.  It also means that many of your favorite coupons, you know, the ones you've been meaning to print but haven't gotten round to, are going byebye.  If you've got any coupons on Coupons.comSmartSourceRed PlumWhole FoodsTargetBetty Crocker, or Cellfire that you've been eyeing, now is a good time to put toner in the printer.

Make sure to do your end of month coupon purge in your folders.  This was definitely THE month to get cheap cereal.  I was swimming in all sorts of cereal coupons.  Why do those always come out so close to Passover?  Speaking of Passover, now is the time to start eyeing your coupons for potential Passover value, i.e. that Klondike potatoes coupon, sugar coupons, egg coupons, Tropicana orange juice coupons, etc.

More early Passover deals

I hope you were able to take advantage of some of the Pesach deals I posted back here, as three days later, nearly all of them are now sold out!  (See, the early bird really does catch that worm...)

I found a few more nice early deals on Kosher La'Pesach products on Amazon.  Catch that worm....


Osem Mediterranean Pickles (medium), 19 oz. cans, pack of 12, $16.47 ($1.38 per can). You will see $19.38 as the price listed, but ignore that.  Select the Subscribe & Save option to snag the $16.47 price.  Remember to unsubscribe from Subscribe & Save after your order ships, very easily done by going to your Amazon account settings. You can split up the 12 cans with friends or not...I bought this just for us, because we buy these delicious Israeli pickles year-round and I don't mind stockpiling them at this price.

Osem Mediterranean Green Olives, 19.6 oz.cans, pack of 12, $31.38 $26.67 ($2.62 $2.23 per can). UPDATE: there is now a Subscribe & Save option for this item, dropping the price by 15%. Make sure you unsubscribe from this after your item ships.  Not a supercheap deal, but still way less expensive than the store, which stocks them for $3.50 even when it's not Passover.

Savion Roasted Garlic Flavor Couscous made with 18-minute matzoh, 5.50 oz., pack of 6, $22.14 ($3.69 per box).  Funny story about this product:  I first had it when I was a Pesach guest at a new friend's home in Oceanside.  I didn't know her very well (I have since gotten to be very close friends with her and her family), and the couscous that she served was so outstanding, I almost thought she had accidentally served chametz.  This stuff is made with 18-minute matzoh meal and is so good, it's worth twice this price.  I've seen it in the stores for $4.50+.

Gefen KLP Onion Powder, 2.25 oz., pack of 8, $12.80 or $1.60 each.  Pesach spices generally go for $2 each in most stores. Since no one uses 8 jars of onion powder in 8 days (unless you know something I don't), you will definitely want to split this one with friends, unless you decide to stockpile it for future years.

Finally, here are the four items from my previous early-bird Pesach post that are still not sold out yet.

Kosher gluten-free and allergy-free items (including Shalach Manos) at great prices plus 10% off

Purim is now barely two weeks away...have you figured out what you're doing for Shalach Manos (aka Mishloach Manot or Purim Goody Baskets) yet?  What am I sending my growing list of friends who have food sensitivities (like being gluten-free)? It's not easy to find food products that are both food-allergy-sensitive AND strictly kosher that don't also cost a small fortune.

I found a company called AllergyFreeKosher, which is the only website selling allergy-free products that guarantees everything it sells to be kosher. Besides having a really nice variety of kosher gluten-free and allergy-free foods, they have a wonderful, very moderately priced selection of six Shalach Manos packages here. All of their Shalach Manos packages (which start at $29.99) are dairy-free, nut-free and gluten-free AND they ship for free.

But wait! There's more!

Even though the prices at AllergyFreeKosher are already very competitive, DailyCheapskate readers can get an additional 10% off any order when you purchase through this site and use promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout. This promo code is good through 3/7/12.

Check these Shalach Manos packages out:

















While shipping on the Shalach Manos packages is free, free shipping on all other items on AllergyFreeKosher starts at a $49 purchase.  If you're on a gluten-free diet, check out their other products...you will be blown away at their prices.  Here's a sampling:

Groupon for $10 for $20 on the Fish Grill in L.A.


Ok, I'm absolutely sick over this.  What?  Why?  The Fish Grill in Los Angeles is absolutely my favoritest kosher restaurant ever. I would eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner there if I could.  The fish is grilled and served up with salad and it tastes amazing.  I'm sick over the fact that I have no plans to be in L.A. in the coming months to take advantage of this half-price Groupon.  Grrrrr.

My BFF Ariela lives out in L.A., and I'm thinking now that I'm long overdue for a visit.  Isn't that crazy?  That's how much I love the delicious food at the Fish Grill.  I really, really want this Groupon.



Groupon has got a $20 Fish Grill voucher for $10, good at the Malibu Fish Grill and the one on Wilshire.  (Oh, how I love the Malibu one!  It's right on the beach, and everything tastes better on the beach.  The picture above is one I took the last time I was out in Cali.)  The Groupon voucher expires on 6/27/12, and is not good from 3/31/12-4/15/12 (Passover).  Limit one per customer.

Los Angeles DailyCheapskate readers, if you like fish and healthy eating (and especially if you keep kosher), buy this Groupon.  That's all I'm saying.  That, and I'm so jealous.  It will be available through tomorrow and then it goes away.
