This week Steam has two nice deals on for Midweek Madness. The first, is for the Elder Scrolls Collection which has been discounted 50% across the board. You can buy the entire collection, or the game individually to fill in your collection.
The games can also be bought individually at 50% off as mentioned, however, you save more if you pickup the entire collection. The bundle cost is about $10 cheaper than buying the games all individually.
The second deal this week for Midweek Madness is The Secret World which is on sale for $24.99 (50% off). This is a MMORPG so bare in mind that this game has a monthly subscription fee to play in addition to the initial cost of the game. However, new accounts get the first month free.

This months online coupon code for $5 off purchases of $30 or more online has been released for Chapters Indigo. This months coupon code is OCTOBER2012.
This qualifies your order for free shipping, as the threshold at Chapters Indigo is $25.

So instead of making one larger order, make two separate orders of $30, with each being discounted by $5. They will also both ship for free as both orders would be $25. A good rule of thumb is to wait some time between orders.
There are no limits to the number of times you can use this coupon code in a month.

Pros of Cuisinart Gourmet Propane BBQ
Cuisinart BBQs are know to provide even heating, large cooking area and a full featured grill. However they have a few drawbacks:
Cons of Cuisinart Gourmet Propane BBQ
The Cuisinart Gourmet Propane BBQs only come with a rotisserie burner but the rotisserie kit is sold separately. It is also thin and made out of lightweight materials that aren’t the best quality. That being said, they have excellent customer support and if anything breaks down within the warranty period they will replace it immediately with new parts.
Overall, this is a good deal for a decent BBQ if you don’t want to spend much on it, especially since it’ll onnly be used in the summer when the weather’s good.
