Try Kaplan Tutoring for 1 Month for $9

The Kaplan Tutoring Online Learning Program starts with an assessment to determine your child's math and reading levels, then smoothly customizes a learning plan based on these assessment results. As your child progresses through the program, the material continues to adapt, becoming harder on topics your child masters, and easing back to accommodate struggles so that lessons are always challenging and engaging. Fun, interactive characters and the Reward Zone, where kids can redeem points for prizes, help kids stay motivated to continuously come back and push themselves to learn more. As a parent, you'll also have access to online progress reports so you know it's working.

For a limited time you can test out the Kaplan Tutoring program for a full month for only $9.

Use this code: FB1MO9 to receive the special pricing.

Have you ever used Kaplan before? I'd love to hear about your experience with it. I'm thinking about doing it with my 3rd grader.

Free Things from Vista Print

I have used Vista Print several times and have been very pleased with everything I've received. I've ordered the free business cards, free postcards, free return address labels, and free address stamps (which I put my bank deposit info on so I could easily stamp the backs of checks for depositing).

The "catch" is that you have to pay shipping and it seems like $3.99 or however much it ends up being may be too much for what they are sending, but I just view it as a $3.99 item including shipping. It really does end up being a good deal.

Last year I uploaded our Christmas card photo and had them printed through Vista Print. Loved it. With the free postcard option I made a thank you note post card that was easy to mail (and made for cheaper postage). Anyway, all that to say I trust this site and wanted to let you know.
