RatherBeShopping.com Review

Rather Be Shopping website logoRather-Be-Shopping.com Review

I will be the first to tell you that I, as a man, I do enjoy shopping… I know, I don’t fit the typical stereotype. However, I do not like crowds. So instead of fighting for a parking space or the last shopping cart, I do online shopping!! Go figure, right, a tech geek like me shopping online? LOL.

Rather-Be-Shopping.com is a great place to shop for all those with crowd phobias or for those who simply don’t have the time to shop at their favorite retailers.

So what does Rather-Be-Shopping offer you ask? Well, they do not sell anything per say, but instead they help you “save a few bucks while shopping online”. That’s right, Rather-Be-Shopping has a vast number of online discounts and coupons that are just a click away. No more searching. It is like one stop shopping for online discounts for your favorite retailers. When you can’t find a store you are looking for here on Coupon Dad….than your next stop should be Rather Be Shopping. While I highlight some stores and their sales etc….Rather Be Shopping has codes for over 600 online retailers. Nice.

The thing I like best is the alphabetized list of all the retailers. It makes it very easy to find the deal and coupons you are looking for. There is also a tab that shows the latest “free shipping” codes.

So go check out Rather-Be-Shopping.com for your favorite online retailer’s latest discount codes and coupons.

AWESOME Sneak Peek: VTech InnoPad Tablet

AWESOME Sneak Peek: VTech “InnoPad” Tablet

…shhhh. I know a secret!!! A VTech Exclusive!!!

Your kids are going to go nuts over this one. This morning I got to see a sneak peek of the world’s first learning tablet for kids!!! Like any VTech product I’m sure this will be built tough and rugged to hold up with any hard playing kids. I mean look at the curved edges and what appears to be rubber ends. Nice.

The innovative people over at  VTech know parents want to expose their children to the latest in technology while making it age appropriate and kid friendly. VTech will be doing just that when they launch their new hand held learning tablet this fall.

The “Innopad” (title still could change) will be for children ages 4 to 9.  This is the coolest learning tool I have ever seen. The Innopad is a must have for all the future tech geeks of the world, like me :) LOL!

It has a 5 inch LCD touch screen that has “tilt and rotation” technology for engaging games and apps. This is  really a neat feature, one of the games is a racing one and you can just turn the tablet like a steering wheel to make the car move back and forth between lanes. SWEET..! The “InnoPad” also has a USB port to connect to your computer and comes with an SD card for storage.

The “InnoPad” is not only a tablet that features learning games and creative activities, it is also an E-reader complete with a dictionary!!! It will also feature a globe and calculator.

I also thought the slide show feature it will have will be great for the kids. They can build slide shows with all their favorite pictures and display them much like the electronic picture frames you see. There is even a stand on the back that pops out like a picture frame so you can prop it up.

This news is so hot, the press release does not even come out until Friday!!!!

The very best thing about the upcoming “InnoPad” is the price point. the SRP is only  $79.99. You will get a lot of technology for the price.

The “Innopad” will be available this fall in retailers like Toys R Us, Amazon, Target, and Walmart and of course on VTechKids.com.

Monopoly Streets Video Game Review

Monopoly Streets for Wii Review

To celebrate it’s 75th anniversary, Monopoly has a new video game called Monopoly Streets that allows the player to see their virtually animated city be built property by property. “MONOPOLY STREETS has everything you love about the board game, presented as a street level tour of Mr. Monopoly’s fully animated world”.

There are 3 boards to choose from. You can stay with the “classics” or engaged in the Monopoly City version or the Landmark version that takes you to landmarks around the world. You get to pick the token you want to be, I like “driving” the car!! The best part, even though it is a video game you can customize the game to accommodate your own house rules like setting your own tax rates or like in my house making the “Free Parking” space a money maker!!

Monopoly Streets is available for the Wii, PS3, and XBox 360.

My opinion:

It is no secret that my family loves playing games. While the classics are great, today’s kids are more intrigued by video games than board games. At our house, we had an “Old vs. New” contest. We would played the traditional and the Monopoly Streets for Wii. Conclusion… they were both fun in their own ways.

We had many laughs around the table as I bankrupted everyone!!  The kids made the new rule that I had to land on the same property twice before I could purchase??? They call it luck, I call it skill….

The new Monopoly Streets is cool because it is fun to “see” yourself driving down Broadway and building a high rise. Check out the latest Monopoly Streets Trailer . I think it’s cool that Mr. Monopoly has a GPS in his car…. although I don’t know why he would need one because men don’t need to ask for directions LOL!

I like that the Monopoly Streets games is family friendly. It is good, clean fun. The kids love Monopoly Streets. It is a modern twist on an old game. I think we will make a lot of memories on family game night with Monopoly Streets.

Cost
$38.95
