Get a Workout While You Work With a Discounted FitDesk

I bought the FitDesk 2.0 on a whim a couple of years ago, and was surprised both by how viable it was to work at, and how compact it gets when folded up. It fits easily into a closet, or opens up for use while working, gaming, or marathoning Netflix, and is particularly nice out on the balcony. Today’s price is the…

The Regular Person’s Guide to Redeeming Chase Ultimate Rewards Points For Travel

A lot of people like to hoard their Chase Ultimate Rewards points to book first class flights or five star hotels that they’d never pay for themselves, and more power to them. But I prefer to stretch mine out to cover as much travel as possible, even if it’s not glamorous. Here are the most cost point-efficient…

Four Tips From Ex-Burglars On How to Protect Your Home and Belongings

Nobody knows what deters burglars more than burglars. Here’s what former thieves recommend you do to safeguard your home from break-ins.

Kyle Iboshi, investigative reporter at KGW News in Portland, Oregon, surveyed 86 inmates currently serving time for burglary about how they broke in and what homeowners can do to deter other burglars. It came down to four big deterrents anyone can do:

  1. Keep your property visible with good lighting, and keep your bushes and trees trimmed.
  2. Always leave a TV or radio on when you leave, and keep at least one light on. This was one of the most commonly mentioned deterrents in the survey.
  3. Keep an extra car visible in the driveway if possible. Almost every ex-burglar surveyed said that seeing a car in the driveway kept them away.
  4. Get to know your neighbors so they can report any suspicious activity to you.

Other tips include getting a dog—a big one, not a small one—posting a security system sign (which doesn’t always work), and getting a visible security camera. You can get more great tips at the link below.

Philips’ Popular and Giftable Wake-Up Lights Are Back On Sale

Philips HF3520, $100 after $10 coupon | HF3505, $69 after $10 coupon | HF3500, $60 after $10 coupon

If you still haven’t upgraded your morning routine with a life-changing wake-up light, Amazon’s taking an extra $10 off several different models via clippable coupons today.

For starters, the high-end HF3520 is down to $100, within $5 of an all-time low. This model features five different wake-up sounds, an FM radio, the ability to set two different alarms, and a color-shifting light that accurately mimics a sunrise.

If you don’t want to spend quite that much, the HF3505 is also marked down to $69. While it lacks its big brother’s color-shifting light and a few wake-up sounds, it does still include a radio, and its yellow light will still get your body ready for the morning.

And finally, the entry-level HF3500 is on sale for $60. This one doesn’t include a radio, and it only beeps—no natural wake-up sounds here—but the light works just as well as the 3505, and that’s what matters most. I’ve owned this model for a couple of years, and love it.
