Washer City or Sanford and Son reboot

The GE was the POS we bought after the 2013 flood – motherboard fried 14 months later, replaced it and the motor died after two loads.  Bought a used Maytag from an appliance store on South Ashland which worked great for years.  FirstBorn’s friend had just replaced the motor on his mom’s Whirlpool, who then decided she wanted a new one after all; got at least six+ months until it died.  Hit Best Buy yesterday and took a Whirlpool off the floor; trying heavy duty cycle today for funsies … over 3 hours and still not finished.  Damned energy efficient appliances!  Never use THAT cycle again, along with the clean your washer setting 🙂

Point of this post is that I’ve been trying to get household members to move the old stuff out of my laundry room for a century and it finally happened.  Looks like a Sanford and Son reboot, but the junk guys are gonna be doing the happy dance.

Ibotta Flash Cash: extra 5% at Sam’s Club

24 hours to get up to 5% extra back from Ibotta when you shop at Sam’s Club.  They pay fast and it adds remarkably quickly.  This is the rebate APP I use most often – well, there’s Fetch Rewards, but those are mostly 25 and 50 points, but it’s for every store, every receipt and you can combine with the other rebate APPs.  They usually offer a signing bonus of at least a couple of thousand points. Enter promo code WVAB6 (it asks at the very end, just make sure it’s entered before your first receipt scan ’cause you can’t go back).

Kindle reads for the cheap seats

Here are the cheap seats reads: cozy mysteries, fiction, nonfiction, thrillers, mysteries, history and anything that looked interesting.  You don’t need a Kindle since you can download their free APP and read on any device. Great being able to have tons of titles for whatever your current mood. Prices are as of today – don’t hold your breath for tomorrow – – the bread book I saw yesterday for $1.99 is now $16.99…just a trifle too pricey, but the Tassajara bread book has EXCELLENT reviews from very respected chefs and bakers – it’s been around forever.
