Groupon.com Has Amazon Promo Codes!



amazon.com with Amazon Coupons & Coupon Codes



Did you know Groupon has Amazon Promo Codes and Coupons?

I didn't, but I do now.

Amazon is something I use often, VERY OFTEN. My husband may even tell you, too often. We have Prime, so I primarily shop for things that have Prime Shipping and we use Amazon Prime to find movies and shows to watch. Sometimes I will even remember to check what books are FREE downloads each month. Recently, I was able to download and borrow The Handmaid's Tale through the Prime Lending Library to read for FREE and it is our book club pick this month (FYI - it is still available.

What I didn't know about and use is the 156 Coupons for Amazon available on Groupon. Not just coupons, but also other discounts and promotions I didn't know were available You better believe I will be checking Groupon more often now to find out what discounts are available on Amazon.

Where Did We Go Wednesday? RBNC Macro Invertebrates Class

Did you know that many nature centers offer a variety of classes for kids, adults, and Families? We used to be able to get more of the classes in when we were not as busy but as the kids grow older their schedules get busier. This class was a macroinvertebrate class at the river bend Nature Center in Faribault Minnesota.

It was quite an interesting class and we discovered many creepy things living in the pond.  they look even creepier when you look at them under microscopes.

Usually classes there are very low-cost or possibly even free. I encourage you to check them out and see what is available to you. Ours changes whenever we get different interns, so each year it might be different classes. Also oftentimes nature centers offer day camps so that might be an option to help round out your child summer especially if they are starting to complain of boredom.

Where Did We Go Wednesday? Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam was day 3 on our road trip vacation that took us to Death Valley, Las Vegas, and a lot of different places in Arizona. My husband and I have been here before but this was my kids first time going here.

Going to Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon had us feeling a bit like we were part of National Lampoon's Vacation.

Hoover Dam it's just one of those places that you go to even if you aren't there for a very long time because it is too dang hot to be outside. It is a place that does inspire awe.

Just one two bit if you are entering from Nevada there is a pay parking ramp but in the hot sun it is probably worth it. We did pay for parking but if you drive across Hoover Dam into Arizona there is lots that are free to park in there but you may have a bit of a ways to walk.

Where Did We Go Wednesday? RAD Zoo in Owatonna, MN




 We have a family pass to the RAD Zoo, so we get there at least a half dozen times a year. This time we got a family pass that allows us to bring a guest with us each time. So, far we have only taken advantage of that once, but I hope we use this benefit a couple of times this summer.


Every time we go there is always something new to see and possibly hold. We have been members since they first opened, so there is a lot we have learned and experienced since they opened.

If you want to see more pictures and read more about our trips there:
