Deals, Deals, Deals!

Two cool deals today:

1)  Head over to Farragut Friday at Farragut Square,17th and K Street NW, from 11:30 am to 2 pm and you can not only enjoy all the awesome food trucks, but also get free samples of MiO, which is a “revolutionary liquid water enhancer that puts 24 servings in the palm of your hand and allows you to make your drink anywhere, anytime.”

2) $1 lunches at FoBoGro (and a bunch of other places).  That’s right, LivingSocial is launching their instant deals feature.  FoBoGro is included.  I’m not quite sure on how it’s supposed to work (can I only BUY the deal from 11-2 today, or can I only USE the deal from 11-2 today?) You can only use the deal from 11a-2pm today, but if you don’t use it, your $1 gets refunded. Unfortunately the LivingSocial site seems to be suffering from some really heavy traffic and is preeeettttyyyy slow right now.  Try it for yourself. If you’re already a LivingSocial subscriber, you should be able to get directly to the FoBoGro offer through this link.  Aroma, Cone E. Island, and Lindy’s are also on the deal list.

50% Off at Tonic

Just a head’s up that today’s deal at is 50% off at Tonic.  It’s $20 for $40 worth of food and drink.

Get the deal here.

I’d spend it all on tots.

Our friendly neighborhood grocer and sandwich shop FoBoGro is the side deal at today — get $20 for food and drink for only $10!

If you haven’t tried FoBoGro yet, now you really have no excuse not to.

H/T to Preston for the tip.

Free Stuff

In case the Humpday sales offerings don’t quite tickle your fancy  – we thought we’d share with you this opportunity for college students (we’re looking at you, GW) to get Amazon Prime for free for a year.

Amazon Prime lets you get free 2-day shipping (and $3.99 1-day shipping) on eligible offers — but normally costs $79/year.  With this free 1-year offer, you’ll be sure to get all your books before classes start.
