$5 off $20 coupon code for book purchases on Amazon for Prime Day

I was hoping there would be a book coupon code for Prime Day, and here it is: get $5 off a $20 book purchase with code PRIMEBOOKS18. There are a few requirements; for example, books must be sold directly by Amazon (not just fulfilled by Amazon.)

I had my purchases in my cart and was ready to go! Here’s a list of great book deals that you can use the code on if you’re not sure what to purchase. Happy Prime Day!

FREE Pizza lunch combo at Little Caesar’s on April 2

From Little Caesar’s Twitter:

Because “CRAZY HAPPENED” with a #16 beating a #1 (!!!!), everyone in America gets a free Lunch Combo on Monday, April 2nd. Congratulations & see our OFFICIAL RULES for more details:

The lunch combo comes with four slices of pizza that adds up to about the size of a normal personal pizza and a 20 ounce drink.

Make sure to read the fine print details though. For example, if you show up with your family, only one free box will be given out. So it’s best to go individually if you want to take the best advantage of the deal.

The time limits are strict. Those in line at 1 p.m. who have yet to order will have to pay for their pizza. The best bet would be to show up closer to 11:30 a.m., when the promotion starts, to make sure you’re one of the first to get the deal!

Thanks, WCPO!

Puccini’s Turandot: Penny for the Arts deal!

My children and I got to see the Knoxville Opera’s performance of Puccini’s Turandot this week, and it was AMAZING! I cannot recommend this opera enough. The costumes and sets are as gorgeous as the singing. I like to read a plot synopsis to my kids ahead of time, but some people prefer to just read the English supertitles as the opera goes along.

You can get children’s tickets for just a penny when you buy an adult ticket to this weekend’s performances!

Here are the details:

AN ICY, BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS SO DESIRABLE THAT MEN CAME BY THE HUNDREDS TO VIE FOR HER LOVE. Desired by all men but wanting none, China’s cold-blooded Princess Turandot has built a wall of riddles around her heart.  Despite the deadly consequences of failure, Prince Calàf takes on Turandot’s challenge to match her wit and melt her icy resistance. Certainly the finest opera never completed, Turandot was bereft of its final scene due to Puccini’s untimely death. While it took a mere mortal to finish what this genius composer had started, Turandot remains among the top of the operatic pantheon to this day. Its ravishing score bursts with brilliant choruses and fiendishly difficult arias, including “Nessun dorma,” which Luciano Pavarotti elevated to iconic status. The opera’s music and majesty will be crowned by four sensational artists. Performed in Italian with projected English translations.

Opera previews hosted by Maestro Salesky begin 45 minutes prior to opera performances.  Patrons get insight into the music, story, history and a chance for Q&A. All students are invited to take photos with the cast on the set after the final curtain for Turandot.

Performances: Friday, February 23 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, February 25 at 2:30 PM. Contact Knoxville Opera box office for Penny4Arts tickets to either performance. Tickets may also be available starting one hour prior to performance time at the Civic Auditorium. Please allow extra time for parking downtown and security lines. Please be aware of the security policy for the Knoxville Civic Auditorium.

Advance reservations required? NO
Contact: Marie Butler, 865-524-0795 x1, mbutler@knoxvilleopera.com
