This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

School's starting back soon (seems to be the theme of most of my recent blog posts!) and Famous Footwear is having a fabulous back to school sale!  Time to go pick up some new shoes for the kiddos (man their feet grow so fast!) and yourself (oh how I'm suck a sucker for a cute pair of flats!).  They offer such a variety of shoe types, from tennis shoes to sandles, boots, dressshoes, and even a narrow and wide (yes!) categories, all for men, women, and children!  The back to school promotion is Buy One Get One Half Off, plus a 15% off coupon...what an amazing deal!   Follow the link to pring off your coupon and redeem it in-store now through August 18th BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon


If there's not a Famous Footwear near you, or if you just don't have time to go into the store to shop, you can order online at at and have them shipped to their favorite store for pick-up at no charge, or to your home for an added convenience (did I mention I have a slight obsession with online lines, no having to get all cute to go out, and a lot easier to look up reviews of the product before buying...LOVE IT!). 

Oh, and if the 15% isn't enough for you, you can join Famous Footwear's rewards program and get 20% off to use in stores until August 18th.  You also get 1 point for every $1 you spend at Famous Footwear (in stores or online) and can cash in the points for up to $100 in certificates in a year!

Summer Vacation - SAVE in San Antonio

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SAVE for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

So the Summer's coming to an end, but it's not over yet!  There's still time to get out there and explore!  I love visiting different places around the US (visiting every state is on my bucket list), and recently I've become aware of SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience.  It's a site that offers discounts for attractions and hotels in San Antonio, with more than $600 in savings available!  On their site there are also Limited Time Offers, so be sure to check those out and plan your vacation!

Unfortunatly, I'm not going to be able to take another vacation this summer (bummer!) but it's still fun to plan one out and see all the wonderful things there are to do!  Using SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience, I learned there are so many attractions in San Antonio I wasn't even aware of! 

So, my dream vacation experience in San Antonio for a long weekend would start off staying at the Westin (hands down the most comfy beds ever!) where you can get discounts from SAVE for room prices starting at $119.  After checking in and putting away luggage, change into swimsuits and head to, 20 acres of family waterpark fun featuring 40 waterslides, the 1/2-million-gallon wave pool, the 1/4-mile-long Siesta Del Rio, a huge kids' pool and activity pool with water volleyball, water basketball and more! The SAVE discount is up to $42, and now through August 10th the waterpark has "dive in movies" on Fridays, where visitors can enjoy family-friendly movies while hanging out in Splashtown San Antonio’s wave pool. 

The next day I would go to !  Sea World is my favorite park, and while I've never visited the one in San Antonio, it looks fabulous and SAVE offers $10 off each ticket!  I usually don't stay at an amusement park all day, but if it's anything like the other SeaWorld park I've been to, then with all the shows and exhibits to see then it'll be an all day affair. 

The next day I would split the day between the San Antonio Zoo ( - $2 off admission with SAVE)


and Six Flags Fiesta Texas  ( - multiple discount opportunities avaialbe through SAVE, including everyone paying kids price!).

Before heading home on the final day, the hubster and I always take a tour of each city we visit, and the Grand Trolley Tours offers a historic journey through beautiful San Antonio on a 60 minute ride, where you can use SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience for a $3 discount.  On the way out of town (or into if you want to do it like the normal people) stop by the San Antonio's Official Visitor Information center and get a free gift if you purchase over $15 worth (perfect place for souviners for those who weren't lucky enough to have all the fun you just did).

So that's a jam packed itenerary, but with SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience offering so many discounts and offers, what would be a pricy vacation suddenly got much cheaper!  Follow@SAVEinSA on Twitter for more updates on deals, Limited Time Offers, and other ideas for iteneraries.  Do you have any vacation plans coming up or any experience using SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience ?  Let me know so I can live vicariously through you!
