A professional photo shoot at Life Photo Studios offers a customized and high-tech way to capture your family’s unique personality onto a digital file for posterity. During a one-hour session at the high-tech studio, Life Photo’s expert soul-stealers will capture 30 to 50 images of both posed portraits and cute candid shots of your children boxing. Life Photo Studios’ team of professional photographers are experts in creating comfortable environments for their subjects to open up in, and you’re encouraged to bring your own props, teacup piglets, or pot-pies for good naturedly plunging into each other’s faces.

An 8”x8” portrait and retouched digital file of your favourite image will be included in the deal, as well as an additional 10% off any prints you order. The photo session can accommodate up to 15 people, which makes it ideal for large families or Menudo reunions.

Foot Locker Friends and Family 30% Off Sale Aug 26-29

Get 30% Off at Foot Locker’s Friends and Family sale!

I found this deal posted on the SPC website. You can click here to download the coupon.

I’m think it’s only for SPC card holders, but it doesn’t mention or say anything about it in the fine print. Some of the other companies on the same page with deals clearly mention it’s for SPC card holders only. The Foot Locker deal doesn’t say anything so if you don’t have a SPC Card, you’re welcome to try it out and let us know how it goes.

The regular SPC card is only for students. If you’re not a student, but want a SPC card, read my previous post about how you can get a VIP SPC card for Free. The VIP SPC card allows anyone to use it. I ordered a VIP SPC card a couple weeks ago and just got it in the mail.

UPDATE: Turns out you do not need a SPC card to take advantage of the deal. Anyone who prints out the coupon gets it. Please note, some items are excluded from the deal (Ie. Puma, Jordan shoes) because the manufacturers won’t allow certain products to go on sale.

You can click here to download the coupon.

Google Call launched – Call any phone in Canada or USA for Free

Google Call was just released today. I just downloaded it and tried calling a couple people and it works amazingly well. You can now call any phone in Canada or US (including all cell phones and landlines) for free in Gmail!

Click here for more information.

Gmail voice and video chat makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family using your computer’s microphone and speakers. But until now, this required both people to be at their computers, signed into Gmail at the same time. Given that most of us don’t spend all day in front of our computers, we thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if you could call people directly on their phones?”

Starting today, you can call any phone right from Gmail.

Calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year and calls to other countries will be billed at our very low rates. We worked hard to make these rates really cheap (see comparison table) with calls to the U.K., France, Germany, China, Japan—and many more countries—for as little as $0.02 per minute.

Dialing a phone number works just like a normal phone. Just click “Call phone” at the top of your chat list and dial a number or enter a contact’s name.

You can download it by visiting

The Company
5940 Blackfoot Tr. SE, Calgary, Alberta

A hearty chuckle has been known to ward off depression, loitering lycans, and roving bands of beatniks. Today’s Groupon reaps the benefits of a boisterous good time: you get admission to a show at The Laugh Shop, the stand-up comedy venue at The Blackfoot Inn.

Choose one of the following options:

•$7 for a Friday or Saturday night show (a $15 value)
•$5 for a Thursday night show (a $10 value)

The Laugh Shop features a fun and ever-changing collection of touring headliners that tumble in and out of town each week. Top-notch, nationally touring funnypersons take to the stage, regaling diverse audiences with side-splitting tales of merriment, matrimony, and mystical visions in the desert. Upcoming acts include master impersonator Kevin McGrath; Andrew Grose, whose credits include specials on The Comedy Network and CTV; and Tim Nutt, whose long locks and beard imbue everything he says with hilarity and a faint almond aftertaste.

The Laugh Shop offers a café menu and a full bar of beverages and booze, so you can satisfy an ornery and growling stomach pre-show to avoid angering the fickle stand-up pantheon.

Shows are for patrons 18 and older with a valid ID. This deal is only valid for regularly priced shows.

I just checked and you get can 2 for 1 tickets to the Diana Ross concert in Calgary on Saturday, September 11, 2010 at the Stampede Corral. I guess some concerts are having a tough time selling out.

I wonder what happens to the people who bought these tickets in advance for the regular price? I would be pissed if I found out later that I could have bought the same tickets for half the price.
