TungstenWorld.com 5% Military Discount

Tungsten World offers a military discount on their tungsten wedding bands and alternative metal rings, including camo design styles, to active and veteran military personnel and their families. I've provided the link to request the additional 5% off any orders. You can also find the link at the top of their homepage. This discount is in additional refund on top of any other promotional offers applied to your order.

To visit their Military Discount Page - Click Here

Their discount is both online at www.tungstenworld.com and in our store in California found here

I got one of their camo design styles which is very cool! They have two different camo styles in silver and black. The ring fits perfectly. You can definitely see the camo best when outside.

The 5% military discount is in addition to other offers or discounts they offer. I always recommend checking out sites like retailmenot to see what other discount they have going on. Right now they have some deals for $25 off your order

Denny's Military Discount (10%)

Last night we went out to eat at Denny's. Denny's is a 'American diner' that has been around since the 1950's and is open 24/7. I usually go there late at night and get a breakfast meal like french toast. Last night I got the French Toast Slam (see below)


While there I inquired about their discounts. I found out that they offer a 10% Military Discount. This of course varies from location to location but the 4 locations I have been to have all offered that discount. So i'm pretty sure you won't have any problems with Denny's honoring the discount.  From their Veterans Day press release last year they stated:
"Select Denny’s nationwide offer a 10 percent military discount year-round for diners with proof of service. For more information or to find a participating Denny’s near you, please visit www.dennys.com."

$$ Our Favorite Financial Blogs $$

Growing up, no one really ever taught me how to handle my money, no one taught me how to start saving for retirement. It is something that most people just learn by themselves. Looking back I would have enjoyed having a finance class in high school. Others must have felt the same way because I've heard they have started teaching finance as early as middle schools now. I've made my share of financial mistakes and wish I could have found these 8 sites early in my life. They all have great financial advice and great deals that you wont find anywhere else.
Here is a list of my favorite Financial Blogs
  1. My Money Blog - the author is Jonathan. He writes about great deals, investment ideas, tax ideas, and new concepts such as myIRA and more
  2. Personal Finance Digest - I read this blog everyday. It gets updated M-F. He covers a series a great deals, funny news, and money making opportunities in every post.
  3. Maximizing Money - This was one of the first financial blogs I ever started reading. It gets updated daily with new financial bonuses (banks, credit cards, etc). The author also keeps you updated with the latest sweet deals
  4. My Thirteen Cents - Written by another military member with updated deals.
  5. Hustler Money Blog - Updates on newest credit card, bank bonuses. Always updates american express offers and has fun offers like free gift card promotion for test driving cars. 
Here are 4 fantastic MILITARY Financial Blogs
  1. Military Finance - Written by a Military Doctor in the Navy with a ton of sweet deals and how to maximize you military benefits. He's an expect on the SCRA credit card benefits
  2. Military Money Manual - Great advice including TSP, taxes, loans, investments. etc.
  3. The Military Frequent Flyer - Great Military advice for traveling, credit cards, and many other subjects.

Free Tax-Filling Programs for Military

Common tax forms like W-2's have probably been gathering in your mailbox. Tax forms are due by April 15 and there are many programs that help you file them. Luckily for us, many of these programs are FREE or Discounted to Military personnel. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, the average cost to have someone prepare your taxes was $246-143 (depending if you have itemized deductions). This may be well worth it to have an expert do it and save you the headache and hours trying to read through all the pages of instructions. Others like to do it themselves and can find do it yourself products from $8-$60. Both have their pros and cons. Here's an interesting article that discusses both sides. Here is an opinion that you should always let the pros do it. 

Lets take a closer look at some of the Military Tax Software Discounts!
  • Turbo Tax
    • Free Federal and State if you are E1-E5

Flower Discounts on Valentine's Day (up to 65% off)

My brother was recently deployed in Afghanistan, I heard that he sent his wife flowers every week during his seven month deployment. He used 1800flowers but there are several great companies. The great thing about giving flowers nowadays is it can be done entirely online. These companies will deliver the flowers to your front door in perfect condition. This can be great for Military couples separated by distance.
Bundle of Love Rose Plant
Remember that these Flower Discounts can be compounded with other discounts like Plink(+10% off) and American Express Credit Card Offers (+30% off). Add this to the Military 20-25% discount and you are looking at a 65% discount off your purchase!!
