Save $60 a Year on Your Internet

Linksys Cable ModemIf your internet service provides a cable modem for you to use to get your internet from the wall to your computer, they’re probably also charging you $5 a month for the modem rental (like Comcast has been doing to us for the last two-and-a-half years). Save yourself the $60 a year by buying this Linksys Cable Modem. It’s on sale today only for $19.99 with free shipping. It’ll pay for itself in four months. I picked one up a month or two ago, and it’s worked perfectly. Getting Comcast to switch us over to the new modem took only 5–10 minutes. If you’re looking for ways to save a few bucks a month, I encourage you to take advantage of this offer.

Free Episode of Planet Earth in HD

Planet EarthIf you’ve never gotten around to watching BBC’s Planet Earth yet, now’s your chance to check it out for free—and in HD—and find out what you’ve been missing. Amazon Video On Demand currently has Planet Earth: Season 1, Episode 1: “From Pole to Pole” (49:16) available as a free download—both the standard and HD versions. And it’s the good one, the one narrated by David Attenborough (not the one narrated by Sigourney Weaver).

I’d encourage you to watch it. It contains some amazing footage that will often lead you to worship our great and glorious Creator God, whose “eternal power and divine nature” are clearly seen “in the things that have been made” (Ro 1:20; cf. Ps 19:1–6).

For more on Planet Earth, see Andy Naselli’s two posts: “Planet Earth: A Theological Documentary” and “Piper on Planet Earth.”

Also, be on the lookout for Life, a forthcoming BBC production, also narrated by David Attenborough.

Open an ING Checking or Savings, Get $25

ING DirectFor the last two-and-a-half years I’ve been using ING Direct as my primary bank for checking and savings. They offer lots of great benefits, and they’re all free. Since I pay just about everything online, I have less and less need for a traditional bank. In addition to paying nearly all of my bills, I can send money to people via direct bank transfer or paper check (that they send postage paid). I can even mail most checks in and have them deposited in a couple of days.1 That’s the single reason I keep a traditional checking account. I deposit the few checks and occasional cash I get into a checking account with Chase and use ING’s website to move money to and from any of my accounts—again, completely free of charge.

If you’re looking for a new checking or savings account, I’d encourage you to check out ING Direct. If you open an account with as little as $250 by the end of the month through my referral link, you’ll get $25 deposited into your new account. In full disclosure, I’ll also get $20. :)

Send me an email and let me know if you’re interested in opening a checking or savings account, and I’ll send you the referral email.


  1. I say most, because some checks can’t be deposited.

Together for the Gospel Live for $5

Together for the Gospel LiveI stumbled across a blog post this week (can’t remember where) that had a video embedded of the men from the Together for the Gospel Conference in 2008 singing “Before the Throne of God Above.” I probably watched it a dozen times or more, I enjoyed it so much. So I went to go check out the album at the Sovereign Grace Music store and found out that they’re having a special sale all February. That means it ends today. All music albums are only $5 for the downloadable version and $6 for the CD version.

I picked up the Together for the Gospel Live MP3 Download Set and have been thoroughly enjoying it. I heartily commend it to you.

4 Free MP3 Albums from Amazon

Amazon has four free MP3 albums that you might be interested in downloading.

Classical Favorites Sampler
Relaxation Sampler
Celtic Memories Sampler
Best of Countdown Kids Sampler
They’re not fabulous (slight overstatement), but there are a handful of decent songs—and the price is right.

20 Tracks of Classical Guitar for $2.99

Amazon is currently offering Guitar Sampler, a 20-track album of classical guitar music, for only $2.99—the price of just three individual tracks in the album. I downloaded it last night and have been really enjoying it. If you like classical guitar, you’ll most likely enjoy this album. You can listen to samples of all 20 tracks to find out.

Theo-Logic by Hans Urs von Balthasar for $27

Ignatius Press is having a nice sale on a number of volumes. I just picked up Hans Urs von Balthasar’s three-volume Theo-Logic: Theological Logical Theory in hardback for just $27. That’s just a tad more than the cost of one of the volumes at Amazon.

Here are the three volumes in the set:
