New Facebook Page

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Just a heads up to any RSS subscribers. I’ve created a Facebook Fan page for Idealist Cafe, so if you’re on Facebook and it’s your thing, feel free to connect with me over there. Also, if you’re reading here, but don’t follow me on Twitter, you can check me out there too.

Also, if we haven’t connected yet, drop me a comment and I’ll be sure to read your blog or follow your Twitter.

Every week I get these emails from Travelzoo, usually I don’t pay much attention. Well, I have been thinking about going up to Los Angeles (well, Carson) again to see another Galaxy soccer game, and out of nowhere I get an email from Travelzoo informing me that there is a 50% off promo for the game I want to go to. Sweet!

So all excited I follow the link to buy the tickets, and it turns out that to get the promo on Ticketmaster you need to enter a promo code… Uh oh, no code was in the Travelzoo email or the linked page on their site. So I look all over their site for a way to ask questions. Can’t find one. The contact page is just a generic “comments” form. Bummer. Replying to the email probably won’t get a reply. So I try […]
