Reed College App for Current Students, Prospies and Parents

Reed College App for Current Students, Prospies and Parents

Intellectual hipsters have a few more days to apply to this highly selective Northwest college, and I suggest this app to anyone from ‘prospies’ (prospective students) and parents, to current Reed students who can add codes to the app which opens up its usefulness even more.

The Reed College app runs extremely well on both the iPhone and iPad, and is one of the best looking, informative apps of its type I’ve found.

Definitely a must-have for Reedies and it’s FREE! (*Use this link to get the Android version.)

Cut The Cord With Mohu HDTV Open Box Antenna Savings

Cut The Cord With Mohu HDTV Open Box Antenna Savings

Save An Extra 15% Off!

Now through November 13th you can save an additional 15% Off Mohu Open Box HDTV Antennas with coupon code FALL15.

Whether you’re thinking about cutting the cord with cable or satellite TV, or already a cordcutter looking to add more digital antennas to your home, don’t miss out on these savings from Mohu.

Buying open box Mohu antennas saves you money and is a great way to get the only tool you’ll need to pull in all the available FREE TV over air in high definition with ease, from as far away as 60 miles away!

If you live in a downtown urban area where there are lots of broadcast towers (in Portland, Oregon for example…) you can get over 40 channels with a diminutive Mohu Leaf Metro. If you live in the suburbs, you may want a Leaf 30 for extending your reception range. In rural areas where broadcast towers may be up to 50 miles away the Leaf 50 or Curve 50 are the perfect choice. For those who don’t mind a bit more installation and climbing into the attic, the Sky 60 is worth a look.

Mohu HDTV antennas are simple to setup and use, and give me all the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW, PBS) in high definition, plus many other great channels. I’ve been using two Leaf 50’s (formerly the Leaf Ultimate) and a Curve 50 for several years now, and save $100 a month not paying for cable TV.  I can’t say enough good things about this company, it’s customer service or its products.

Cut the cord today and take back the power to enjoy TV on your terms – not those of the cable or satellite TV company.

If you’re not too techy, but want to cut the cord, get my book: Simple Guide to Over-the-Air Free TV  and learn how to cut the cord with your Mohu HDTV Open Box Antenna and save money too!

Here’s a video of one of my Mohu antenna’s in action…
