Some offers are truly for a limited time, so I’m writing this post early enough for you to take advantage of them before they expire.

As I wrote in an earlier post, the Kindle is to reading what the iPod is to music. For anyone who missed the Oprah show last Friday, Oprah loves it so much she gave one to everyone in her audience along with “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle” loaded onto it. In partnership with Jeff Bezos of Amazon, everyone can get $50 off the $359 regular price through this Friday (10/31/08) by using the promo code OPRAHWINFREY on the Amazon site for this revolutionary device. The promo code also gives you 10% off the book “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle” so you can start evolving into ebooks.

The Palazzo in Las Vegas has a deal on their luxury suites for only $119 per night; because the discounted package includes $50 in free slot play, and $50 to use at Lavo, their new nightclub-restaurant-bar, you end up paying only $19 per suite (plus taxes and fees); just use the code EPOOCTO on their website, or by phone, and book by November 3, 2008. It’s a great way to try out this new hotel adjacent to the Venetian (it’s older cousin) and the Wynn.

And finally, the one offer that is timeless; Fare Compare allows you to get advance notification of discount fares along your favorite routes BEFORE they are announced on the airline websites. Just sign up for their alerts and put in say $50, so that when fares to your destinations drop by $50 or more they email you.

Discounts are wonderful, but only if you know about them, so now that you know, use your knowledge!
