Announcing Save Up 2014

featured-image-4070336
It’s that time of year again! It’s time for our annual Save Up conference, and this year we’re thrilled to host our seventh edition of the conference in the lovely and quirky city of Austin, Texas. America’s savviest money-saving bloggers, the Savings.com DealPros, will be descending upon Austin from July 31st through August 2nd for a couple days of learning, networking and fun!
Save Up in an exclusive event for select Savings.com DealPros during which experts from the Savings.com team will shared their knowledge and industry best practices with the attendees with the goal of helping the DealPros develop their own businesses. We’ll also spend a good deal of time learning from the DealPros by getting feedback on the current programs offered through the Savings Blogger Network and by listening to their ideas for new programs or tools we can offer bloggers who are interested in saving their readers money.

As was the case last year, Save Up will be happening concurrently with Valpak’s annual Coupon U conference. Hosting the conferences together allows the DealPros to meet several team members from our sister company Valpak, as well as Valpak franchise owners from across the country. 

We’ve invited the following bloggers, and we look forward to spending time with them in Austin later this year!

Regretsy’s Crafter School Special: Make Your Own Snooki Mask

featured-image-2684029
When Savings.com asked me to create a weekly DIY tutorial for their readers, I was overwhelmed. I was also drunk, which is why I said yes.

But I think you’ll agree that I’m a natural for a job like this, because I have almost no crafting ability. And if there’s one thing the handmade movement has taught us, it’s that you don’t actually need talent to craft, and everyone has to pretend to like it anyway.

And speaking of no talent, how great is Jersey Shore? Really great, that’s how. And if all those kids did was smoke cigarettes and vomit on themselves, it would be enough for me. But God love them, they’ve got so much more on the ball. Did you know that three of them are already published authors? And Snooki’s book is on the New York Times Bestseller List! It all seems so effortless for them. Probably because they didn’t actually write anything.

Wouldn’t we all want a taste of that life? You bet we would. And today, I’m going to show you how to see the world through Snooki’s eyes. Soon you’ll be living the dream, one happy hour at at time.

I Resolve to Start 2010 on the Right Foot

Hopefully y’all are enjoying the first day of 2010 without the champagne hangover.  But either way, we want to help you start the New Year on the right foot–literally.

We’re giving away a $50 gift card compliments of Famous Footwear.  Whether you use it to buy a new pair of running shoes, dress shoes for a more professional appearance or boots made for walking or a pair of dancing shoes–it’s completely up to you!

The Tech-pert: MagicJack and Other Options for Cheaper Smartphone Calling Plans

featured-image-3092232
I’ve often said it’s not the price of smartphones that bothers me, it’s the monthly fee you have to pay for service.

AT&T and Verizon, for example, charge $59.99 per month for 900-minute plans–not including the obligatory data plan for your iPhone or Android phone. And if you’re a serious gabber, the unlimited voice plans will run you $69.99 monthly.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could switch to the cheapest available voice plan, without giving up a single minute of talk time? Thanks to a couple amazing apps, you can.

Android Nation: HTC Evo, Droid X and Incredible Smackdown of the iPhone 4

It’s old news but at least now its official: the Android platform has become more popular than the Apple iOS in terms of smartphone market share. So logically we’ll take a look at why with a comparison of the leading Android devices against the infamous iPhone 4.
