With the new semester about to begin, here's a great resource for all you college students...and parents of college students:
Bigwords.com is a price comparison engine for textbooks, books, DVDs, games, music and school supplies. Unlike normal textbook stores, Bigwords doesn't sell a thing. They scour all of the best stores, compare prices, and show you where to buy your books to save the most money. On average, they save customers $225.
Instead of finding one price for one item at a time, Bigwords takes all of your items, runs every combination of those items at every store, automatically calculates coupons, promotions, and shipping, and shows you the best possible combination of stores to save you the most money.
When you place an online order, there’s always that little coupon code box towards the end, beckoning you to enter a promotional code or gift certificate number to reduce your total. You know the box I’m talking about, right? Do you ever leave it blank? If you do, then you’re paying too much.
Click here to see how to make sure you never leave that box blank again, along with some tips to maximize your online coupon usage.

Arthur says that if you have an old computer- whether a desktop or laptop- and you have data on it that you'd like to have removed or copied, he can do that for you.
If you've recently changed computers or plan to soon, he can extract those photos and documents you may have thought were lost for good. Well, they are not lost and your computer may even be salvageable. Let him take a look at it. He can also replace a small or defective hard drive or add a second one if you've run out of storage space.
He reminds you that just as with your car, your computer requires periodic tune-ups, usually twice a year. He can clean the junk from your system, check it for viruses and malware and make it run faster. Even if you think yours is running fine, he can make it run faster. His rates are reasonable and he stands behind his work.
