Four cheap ways to entertain yourself
A game, a DVD, a huge batch of music, and an iPhone application, all at seriously discounted prices. Who said having fun has to be expensive?
After(make sure to read my final update to learn how to get a free order of Cinnastix), I thought I'd shift gears and find deals designed to entertain your brain rather than tickle your tastebuds:
- DVD: Amazon has "Firefly - The Complete Series" on sale for $19.99 shipped. This is one of my all-time favorite shows. And check out the five-star ratings from nearly 3,000 reviewers!
- Game: Like first-person shooters? Newegg has Prey (PC) for $5.99 shipped. It has a lot of action, but very story-driven. Highly recommended.
- Music: Amazon MP3 is offering "99 Perfectly Relaxing Songs" for 99 cents. Choirs, chanting monks, classical classics--all designed to chill you out. A penny a tune! Beat that.
- App: Guide airplanes to their runways in Flight Control (iTunes link), a ridiculously fun and addictive game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It's a steal at 99 cents.
So those are my picks; how do you have fun on the cheap? Hulu? Your local library? Buck-a-movie RedBox rentals? Hit the Comments and share your favorite sources of cheap entertainment.
