Here’s a Simple Way to Earn $20 Today… Just for Buying LaCroix

Me: “Whoa, I can get cash back for buying LaCroix?”

My brain:

“Don’t do it.”

“Don’t do it.”

“Don’t do it.”

Me: *Loads 10 LaCroix cases into the cart.*

How to Get up to $ 20 Cash Back on Your Next LaCroix Run

Relatable? Same.

When I land on the LaCroix section in Target, I lose self control. I want all the cases.

Before your next LaCroix haul, download Ibotta, a free cash-back app.

Why? For an undisclosed amount of time, Ibotta has TWO cash-back LaCroix offers:

  1. Earn $ 1 cash back on eight- and 12-packs of traditional LaCroix flavors.
  2. Earn $ 1 cash back on eight- and 12-packs of the LaCroix Cúrate flavors, which include cherry-lime, blackberry-cucumber and cantaloupe-pink grapefruit.

This LaCroix deal is good for your purchases at Target, Walmart, Publix, Safeway, CVS, Whole Foods, The Fresh Market and more.

You can redeem each of these two offers up to five times per receipt, meaning you could pull in a quick $ 10 in cash back on something you’d already be purchasing — all you have to do is snap a photo of your receipt.

Plus, if you’re a new Ibotta user, you’ll get a $ 10 bonus after your first cash-back claim.

That means at the end of today, you could have $ 20 transferred over to your bank account. Just 👏 for 👏 buying 👏  LaCroix.

When our deputy editor, Caitlin Constantine, spotted the Ibotta deal, she headed straight to Publix and grabbed four cases — a mix of key lime, grapefruit and passionfruit. She says it won’t take more than two weeks to finish off her stash.

“Not only would I do this again, I am going to do it again,” she says.

Finally, your lack of self control can pay off. Literally.

Carson Kohler (carson@thepennyhoarder.com) is a big fan of the cantaloupe-pink grapefruit favor. Yeah, it sounds weird, but it’s actually the best.

This was originally published on The Penny Hoarder, which helps millions of readers worldwide earn and save money by sharing unique job opportunities, personal stories, freebies and more. The Inc. 5000 ranked The Penny Hoarder as the fastest-growing private media company in the U.S. in 2017.

The Movie Green Book Is Named for a Real Guide to Travel in a Segregated World. Its Real History Offers a Key Lesson for Today

The object that provides the title for the new movie Green Book is a Jim Crow-era travel guide with extensive listings of hotels, restaurants, gas stations, shops and tourist facilities that welcomed black patronage. The book doesn’t actually get much screen time, but one small moment in the film shines a light on an oft-forgotten truth about the history of segregation in the United States: this was not just a Southern problem.

The film tells a loose version of the true story of an unlikely friendship between Dr. Don Walbridge Shirley (played by Mahershala Ali) — an African-American polyglot, pianist and PhD — and Frank Anthony Vallelonga, known as Tony Lip (played by Viggo Mortensen), a nightclub bouncer. In 1962, Vallelonga was hired by Shirley’s record label, Cadence Records, to serve as the musician’s chauffeur and bodyguard during a tour, which included gigs in the Deep South. Despite the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, which dismantled de jure segregation in public education, de jure and de facto segregation remained the order of the day in public accommodations throughout the nation. Consequently, while Vallelonga and the white members of the Don Shirley Trio, bassist Ken Fricker and cellist Juri Taht, had access to white mainstream public accommodations, Shirley remained confined by the limits of Jim Crow.

To assist him in navigating this racial landmine, Vallelonga was provided a copy of what was informally known as the Green Book. Vallelonga is primarily concerned with the logistics of travel in the segregated South, and that’s where the movie spends most of its time, but the Green Book was a valuable safety resource for black travelers in every region of the country. In fact, its initial focus was New York City, where Shirley and Vallelonga both resided. As Shirley’s tells his chauffeur, he doesn’t have to leave home in order to experience discrimination.

In 1930, New Yorker and social critic George Schuyler admonished those blacks “who could afford to do so” to “purchase an automobile as soon as possible in order to be free of discomfort, discrimination, segregation and insult,” which was part and parcel of public transportation. For certain, private motorists were shielded from public assault, police encounters notwithstanding — but blacks in cars still had to navigate the public landmines of restrooms, lodgings and eateries.

Hence, Victor H. Green, an African American New York City mail carrier, first published The Negro Motorist Green-Book in 1936 to assist black motorists in finding safe public accommodations during their travels. Green’s publication became the Bible of black travel guides and was published annually until 1966.

In the introduction to the 1949 edition, Green provided a historical overview of the first decade of the publication, noting that his ideas for his own publication had come from researching earlier African America travel guides that were out-of-print, as well as from the Jewish press, which “provided information about places that are restricted,” and from “numerous publications that give the genteel whites all kinds of information.” Green’s intended purpose for his guide was “to give the Negro traveler information that will keep him from running into difficulties [and] embarrassments.” Green admonished the black motorist to “Keep this guide in your car for ready reference.”

In a 2010 NPR interview, civil rights icon Julian Bond recalled the importance of the Green Book during trips with his family while growing up. “It didn’t matter where you went — Jim Crow was everywhere then,” he stated, “and black travelers needed this badly. My family had a ‘Green Book’ when I was young, and used it to travel in the South to find out where we could stop to eat, where we could spend the night in a hotel or somebody’s home.”

It would be easy to assume that the Green Book was just a Southern travel guide. But Green made no assumption that black people would only need his help while traveling in the South. Not only did the book include information about international travel, it also contained listings about areas in the country where segregation was less visible but no less felt. Indeed, the 1936 edition of the book was a 15-page pamphlet that focused on locales in the New York metropolitan area — where a substantial part of the book’s audience would have lived.

Despite its multicultural and liberal reputation, New York City has a sordid racial history, which dates back to the colonial era.

As Brian Purnell and Jeanne Theoharis have described for the Washington Post, racial animus in the Big Apple began with the colonization of Native Americans and importing of enslaved Africans in the 17th century. Despite gradual emancipation, which ended slavery in the state by the 1830s, and a strong abolitionist movement to eradicate slavery in the South, racial equality continued to be withheld from blacks New Yorkers. With the New York economy “wedded to slavery,” the years leading up to the Civil War were dominated by pro-slavery sentiment that lead to racial violence in the city in 1863 when Lincoln called for a mandatory draft.

After the Civil War, New York mirrored the South as “black people . . . suffered from written and unwritten rules against racial mixing in marriage, public accommodations and housing.” New York maintained its policy of segregation during the decades following WWII by constructing “housing, parks, playgrounds, highways and bridges,” Purnell and Theoharis write, which “adhered to ethnic composition rules for urban planning,” leaving segregated neighborhoods and subsequently schools intact. In 1964, the year President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, which ended segregation in public accommodations and banned employment discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion or national origin, a New York Times poll showed that most white people in New York City believed that “the Civil Rights Movement had gone too far” in granting black demands for racial equality.

Green made clear in the 1949 edition that he was optimistic about the future of the United States, if not the future of his book. “There will be a day sometime in the near future when this guide will not have to be published,” he wrote. “That is when we as a race will have equal opportunities and privileges in the United States. It will be a great day for us to suspend this publication for then we can go wherever we please.”

The Green Book was discontinued shortly after its founder’s 1960 death, following a 1966-1967 Vacation Guide edition. That issue featured a statement assuring its patrons that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was fact and not fiction. The struggle was finally over.

But race still matters in the United States. As the incident at a Starbucks in Philadelphia — not in the South — demonstrated this year, the nation is still full of spaces like parks, swimming pools , golf courses, sidewalks, and parking lots that are not welcoming to black Americans. During that 2010 Julian Bond interview with NPR, a caller stated, “Well, I was thinking that this [The Green Book] might be a useful tool still today . . . because in some parts of the country, there are places where black people … dare not go.”

Indeed, sixty years after The Green Book was discontinued, the search for black safety continues.

Numbers Don’t Lie: ‘Today’ Ratings Improve Since Megyn Kelly’s Firing

Megyn Kelly’s firing from the 9am hour of the ‘Today’ show has been good for ratings.

via Page Six:

Variety reports that since Kelly was canned about three weeks ago, “viewership in the key demographic favored by advertisers in that time period is up around 10 percent.”

The news will perhaps not surprise NBC brass, who saw viewers abandon the time slot in droves after Kelly took over from Tamron Hall and Al Roker in 2017.

Anecdotally, “Today” also saw a spike in viewers after it fired Matt Lauer last November.

Maybe ‘Today’ should fire everyone and hire a slate of fresh, new, and diverse talent.

How to Watch the Week 8 NFL Games Online for Free Today

The NFL game schedule today starts with the Eagles vs. Jaguars, live from London’s Wembley Stadium with a broadcast time of 9:30 a.m. ET.

Some of the other big NFL games today include Broncos vs. Chiefs, Ravens vs. Panthers, Packers vs. Rams, and Saints vs. Vikings, plus Patriots vs. Bills on “Monday Night Football.”

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch NFL games today for free — online or on TV — during week eight of the 2018 NFL season.

What NFL Games Are on TV Today?

Here is the full NFL game schedule today (Sunday, October 28), including the primetime “Sunday Night Football” Saints-Vikings matchup, and which channels are broadcasting NFL games around the country:

• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 9:30 a.m. ET on NFL Network
• Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• New York Jets vs. Chicago Bears, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Baltimore Ravens vs. Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Green Bay Packers vs. Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m. ET on CBS

With the exception of the morning game played in London (Eagles vs. Jaguars), which is being broadcast on the NFL Network, all of the other NFL games today are airing on a major broadcast network: CBS, Fox, or NBC. Bear in mind, however, that your local stations won’t be showing every game; you should be able to watch your region’s local team and a few other premier games.

To watch these NFL games for free today on TV, turn on your local CBS, Fox, or NBC station. If you have a satellite or cable TV package, you probably have these channels — and perhaps you have the pay channel NFL Network too.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch the NFL games for free that are airing locally on CBS and Fox, plus the “Sunday Night Football” game, which is broadcast nationally on NBC. All you need to do for access to these channels is hook up your TV to a digital antenna. A basic digital TV antenna costs around $ 25, and in most of the country that’s all you need to do to watch over-the-air networks, including Fox, CBS, PBS, NBC, and ABC — totally for free.

How to Live Stream the NFL Games Today for Free

As we have previously reported, there’s a new way to live stream NFL games for free on your phone in the 2018 season:

If you are content to live stream games on your phone, you can use the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Each app offers live streams for the NFL games broadcast on TV in your area, as well as nationally televised primetime games, including “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, “Thursday Night Football” on Fox or the NFL Network, and NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”

Unfortunately, these apps only allow live streaming on phones. You cannot use one of the apps for watching the NFL live online with a larger screen, such as a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on Any Screen

If you instead want to watch NFL games on a screen that’s larger than your phone, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV.

Each of these services allows you to live stream dozens of channels — including local broadcast networks in most of the country — and they all offer free trials lasting about a week for new subscribers. So, if you were hoping to watch the NFL games today online for free, you could register with one of these streaming services and try out their live streaming capabilities on a tablet, connected TV, or any other screen you like.

Packages with these streaming TV services start at $ 40 after the free trial period expires. Take careful note of when the free trial is over, and be sure to cancel if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber. You’ll be charged automatically for the first month’s service if you don’t cancel in time.

How to Watch Every NFL Game Today

All of the strategies listed above for watching NFL games are limited by what’s being broadcast on your local TV stations.

If you want to watch games that aren’t being broadcast locally on CBS or Fox, check out a special NFL subscription package, such as the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket. With this package, you’ll be able to watch out-of-market NFL games, but you’ll pay for it: Prices start at about $ 300 for the 2018 season.

The other option to watch out-of-market NFL games is the NFL Game Pass package. It starts at $ 99.99 for the 2018 NFL season, though you can try it out for free during a seven-day trial period.

NFL Game Pass lets subscribers watch (or stream) every NFL game, but there’s a catch: Access to the games is available only after the games are over. In other words, you can’t watch games live. The tradeoff, beyond a price that’s cheaper than some other packages, is that NFL Game Pass allows you to save time and watch condensed, no-commercial versions of each game.

If you want to watch NFL games online rather than on TV, there are plenty of options for the 2018 season. As we have previously reported:

If you are content to live stream games on your phone, you can use the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Each app offers live streams for the NFL games broadcast on TV in your area, as well as nationally televised primetime games, including “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, “Thursday Night Football” on Fox or the NFL Network, and NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”

Unfortunately, these apps only allow live streaming on phones. You cannot use one of the apps for watching the NFL live online with a larger screen, such as a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

The other option for watching NFL games online for free — on any screen you want — is to sign up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes major networks in packages.

The streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include local broadcast networks in packages in most of the country. To watch the NFL games today online for free, then, all you need to do is sign up for a free trial with one of these services. They all offer free trials that last about a week to new subscribers, and they all allow streaming on laptops, connected TVs, tablets, or whatever your preferred screen is.

After you watch the NFL games for free online today, you’ll have a few more days to test out the streaming TV service before you’ll be charged the full monthly rate — starting at about $ 40. If you decide you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, be sure to cancel before the free trial period ends.

How to Watch All the NFL Games Today

All of the options above are limited: You can only watch the NFL games being broadcast on your local networks. If you want to watch out-of-market NFL games, you must have access to a special package, such as the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket, which lets subscribers watch (or live stream) games that aren’t being broadcast locally, starting at around $ 300 for the 2018 season.

Alternately, if you are patient enough to watch NFL games after they are over, consider the NFL Game Pass package, which starts at $ 99.99 for the 2018 NFL season. This package lets you watch (or stream) any NFL game you want — but the broadcasts are only available after games have ended. While you won’t be able to watch NFL games live with NFL Game Pass, the service can save you time: Subscribers can watch condensed, no-commercial versions of each game.

If you’re unsure if NFL Game Pass is worth the money, new subscribers can test out the service during a free seven-day trial period.

How to Watch the NBA Games Today Online for Free

Basketball fans, rejoice: There are NBA games today on TV, at long last.

The start of the 2018-2019 season is finally here, with two nationally televised NBA games today (Tuesday, October 16): Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics, and Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Golden State Warriors.

Here’s all the info you need to watch the NBA games today, and through the early part of the season. And yes, there are strategies you can use to live stream NBA games for free, at least for a brief trial period.

What Channel Are NBA Games On Today?

The NBA game schedule for today calls for the 76ers vs. Celtics broadcast starting at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the Thunder vs. Warriors at 10:30 p.m. ET. Both NBA games are being broadcast on TNT.

TNT is a pay channel, included with most basic satellite and cable TV packages. If you don’t have cable and want to watch the NBA games today online for free, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes TNT in its packages.

Live streaming TV services work similarly to cable, in that you get a bundle of channels for one monthly price, with the main difference being that streaming customers watch online with any device they like — tablet, laptop, connected TV, and so on. Streaming TV prices are generally lower than cable, and come with fewer fees and more reasonable customer service; for one thing, you can cancel streaming TV online, whereas cable companies generally require you to call (and wait on hold) if you want to cancel.

The streaming TV services FuboTV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include TNT in their basic packages. The prices for these services start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, but new subscribers can watch the NBA games online for free during a free trial period that lasts about a week.

What Is the Best Streaming TV Service to Watch the NBA?

TNT is one of several pay channels televising NBA games this season, and the channels included with streaming TV packages can vary. So figuring out the best streaming TV service for you depends on how much NBA action you hope to watch, which NBA team’s games you absolutely must see, and how much you’re willing to pay.

Here’s a look at the NBA game schedule of nationally televised games today, and throughout week one of the 2018-2019 NBA season. As you can see below, the season’s first three games for the Los Angeles Lakers — who welcomed superstar LeBron James to the team this year — are being televised nationally:

Tuesday, October 16
• Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics, 8 p.m. ET on TNT
• Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT

Wednesday, October 17
• New Orleans Pelicans vs. Houston Rockets, 8 p.m. ET on ESPN
• Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns, 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN

Thursday, October 18
• Chicago Bulls vs. Philadelphia 76ers, 8 p.m. ET on TNT
• Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland Trailblazers, 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT

Friday, October 19
• Boston Celtics vs. Toronto Raptors, 8 p.m. ET on ESPN
• Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz, 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN

Saturday, October 20
• Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards, 7 p.m. ET on NBA TV
• Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN

Sunday, October 21
• Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Clippers, 9 p.m. ET on NBA TV

Monday, October 22
• Orlando Magic vs. Boston Celtics, 7:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV
• San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 10:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV

In addition to the nationally-broadcast NBA games highlighted above, all other NBA games are broadcast on regional sports networks available in different parts of the country. So if you’re a fan hoping to use a streaming TV service to watch the local NBA team, you must check and see if the package includes the regional sports network with rights to air the games.

For example, Hulu Live packages include NBC Sports Boston for streaming customers in Massachusetts and New England, so they have access to local broadcasts of Boston Celtics games. In Tennessee, Hulu Live customers get the Fox Sports Southeast channel, which broadcasts Memphis Grizzlies games. In the greater New York metropolitan area, Hulu Live packages come with YES, which airs Brooklyn Nets games.

These are just a few examples. Before subscribing to any live streaming TV service, check what channels are included and whether or not you’ll be able to watch your favorite NBA team’s games.

As for what national channels televising NBA games are included with basic live streaming TV packages, here’s the rundown:

 

DirecTV Now:

ESPN, NBA TV, TNT

FuboTV:

NBA TV, TNT

Hulu Live:

ESPN, TNT

Sling TV:

ESPN, TNT

PlayStation Vue:

ESPN, TNT (and NBA TV with $ 5 per month upgraded package)

YouTube TV:

ESPN, NBA TV, TNT

How to Watch Even More NBA Games

You should be able to watch tons of NBA games with a basic streaming or cable TV package. But these services won’t let you watch every NBA game.

If you want to watch NBA games that aren’t televised nationally or on your regional sports network, check out NBA League Pass. A variety of options are available, ranging from the NBA League Pass Premium (showing all teams, commercial-free, from $ 39.99 per month) to a single NBA game ($ 6.99). You can live stream out-of-market NBA games for free with NBA League Pass during a seven-day free trial of FuboTV.

Trump’s Biggest Fan, Kanye West, Heads to the White House Today

Drew Angerer

One of the many baffling phenomena of the Trump era has been the readiness of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to hang out with the president, despite his overt and well documented racism and sexism.

The process will reach its peak today when Kanye West drops in for lunch and then witnesses the signing of a new bill to update the way music royalties are paid to take account of the impact of streaming services.  

Kim, of course, has already called into the White House for her photo op with Trump (who once said she had a ‘fat ass‘) as part of her successful campaign to secure a pardon for a grandmother caught up in drug conspiracy.

How to Watch the Brewers vs. Cubs and Rockies vs. Dodgers Tiebreaker Games Online for Free Today

Major League Baseball is making history today with not one but two tiebreaker games scheduled to determine the National League Central and National League West division winners.

Before today, there have been 15 such tiebreaker games — which are played when two teams in the same division end the regular 162-game season with the same record and must face off for a playoff spot. But today marks the first time in MLB history that there will be two tiebreaker games on the same day: Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs, and Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers.

The tiebreaker games determine which teams will be named division winners and move on to the 2018 National League Division Series, which begins on Thursday. The two losers in today’s tiebreakers will play against each other in a National League Wild Card game on Tuesday, and only the winner of that game gets to play in the 2018 NLDS.

Here is everything you need to know about how to watch the Brewers vs. Cubs and Rockies vs. Dodgers games today.

What Time Does the Brewers vs. Cubs Game Start Today?

The Chicago Cubs host the Milwaukee Brewers today at Wrigley Field to determine the National League Central division winner. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET (12:05 p.m. Central Time), and while Jose Quintana will be the starting pitcher for the Cubs, the Brewers hadn’t named a starter as of Monday morning.

The Cubs vs. Brewers game is being broadcast on ESPN. It’s a pay TV channel, of course. If you have ESPN in your cable, satellite, or streaming TV package, simply find the channel and tune in. You can also live stream the Cubs vs. Brewers game today on the WatchESPN app, but doing so requires that you log in with your subscription account info and password.

If you don’t have cable and want to watch the Brewers vs. Cubs game online for free, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN. Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, and Sling TV’s Orange package all include ESPN. All allow streaming on any device you want, with free trials of five to seven days for new subscribers.

Packages from these services start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month. If you’re a new subscriber, you could sign up today and watch the Cubs vs. Brewers game online for free during the free trial period. But if you don’t want to become a paid subscriber, you must remember to cancel the service before the trial period ends or you’ll be charged for the first month in full.

What Times Is the Rockies vs. Dodgers Game Today?

The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers play today to determine the winner of the National League West, with the first pitch scheduled for 4:09 p.m. ET (1:09 p.m. PT).

The Dodgers are hosting today’s game in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium. The starting pitchers are expected to be German Marquez for the Rockies and Walker Buehler for the Dodgers.

Like the earlier game, today’s National League West tiebreaker game is being broadcast on ESPN. To watch the Rockies vs. Dodgers on TV — or online for free — consider all of the same options listed above for the Brewers-Cubs game.

How to Listen to the Brewers vs. Cubs and Rockies vs. Dodgers Games Today

ESPN Radio is broadcasting both National League tiebreaker games today. Fans can listen to the Brewers-Cubs and Rockies-Dodgers games on their local radio station broadcasting ESPN’s play call, or stream ESPN Radio online.

Anyone can listen to ESPN Radio free of charge. There is no requirement to subscribe to a service or log in with a pay TV account.
