This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and MasterCard MarketPlace.
I have always had to be very money conscious when I shop and I am always on
the look out for ways to stretch a dollar or nab a great deal.
I have fallen IN LOVE with online shopping. There is no better place PERIOD
to find the best bang for your buck. So, I was very excited when BlogHer
offered me the opportunity to check out MasterCard MarketPlace.
It's a pretty sweet site, people. It's very easy to sign up, their tutorials
and help section is excellent and holy deals GALORE, Batman! There are great
savings that happen all year round, but there are some especially great
deals during the holiday season.
FOR example...I was having fun, browsing around, when I saw that there was
an offer for Buy.com.(I love this site.) I clicked over and lo and behold!
I saw them.
Diamond stud earrings.
I have wanted diamond stud earrings for as long as I can remember
(especially wrapped up under my Christmas tree!) but I have never been able
to afford them.
And there was a GORGEOUS pair that retailed for $500 that had been marked
down to $99 bucks. (This offer was available when my post went live but may no longer be available.)
With all of my discounts, I ended up with 1/3 carat diamond earrings for $75 bucks.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
For the holiday season every day (until December 24th) at 1pm EST,
MasterCard® cardholders can take advantage of Holiday Overwhelming offers
(OO) at 50% off on top brands by registering at MasterCard MarketPlace.
It's Black Friday 7-days a week, people.
Since these offers go so quickly, so I would recommend signing up for the
email alerts to get notice of them in your inbox. (Also, practice typing...some of
these offers go FAST and typing the word verification in time can be
Like I announced in the title, BlogHer is giving away a $100 MasterCard (and

This is a compensated review by BlogHer.
I'm totally stoked to be a part of BlogHer's iPad giveaway.
As many of you know, BlogHer recently re-designed their site and added a whole bunch of new features and improvements. (Please ignore the eleventyhundred tabs I keep open at the top of my browser, m'kay?)
I'd like to tell you about a couple of them that are my particular favorites.
Series and Features: I love this. I actually did a series on homeschooling for BlogHer and I like that there are things that are not just stand alone posts, but a series of information that we can look forward to and rely on.
Most Popular: This is probably my favorite addition to BlogHer. It tells you which posts are hottest in regards to comments, traffic and "sparkles" (favorites) from readers. It is handy to quickly check out what 'the buzz' is in the BlogHer world!
I LOVE BlogHer. And I hope that you do, too! And if you don't, I hope you get to know it better, because I think you'll fall in love with it, too. It's a terrific community and I couldn't be prouder to be a part of it!
Now for the fun part! BlogHer is giving away an iPad. Click here to enter and read the rules. It runs until December 26th! Good luck! I hope you win!
