Welcome to On Sale at FOX Business, where we look at cool stuff and insane bargains.
Breast Cancer Awareness month is here, and fashion is getting involved. Netflix just keeps getting better, and you'll want to read this before booking a cruise.
Shop for a Cure
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and there are many ways you can show your support for a cure.
Bloomingdale’s (NYSE:M) is offering its “Give Pink, Get More” event through the end of the month. 100% of each $15 enrollment fee for the Bloomingdale’s Insider Card goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and shoppers will receive a “Give Pink, Get More” card worth up to $250.
Luxury leather-goods maker Coach (NYSE:COH) has some great pink-inspired products this month, including a colorful silk scarf. Coach for a Cure will donate 20% of the sales from items on its Web site to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
And fashion legend Betsey Johnson is sharing her survivor story along with must-have items from her collection. These glamorous goods – with proceeds going to cancer research organizations – can be found at BetseyJohnson.com.
Video calls, movie tickets, instant headlines, and now a better way to watch TV: Netflix has the power to send your favorite television series from the palm of your hand to your living room flat screen. Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) has upgraded its iPhone app, which is great news for those who don’t own a gaming console or a Blu-ray player.
The new app gives Netflix subscribers the power to connect their iPhone 4 or 4th generation iPod Touch devices directly to their televisions for on-demand viewing. All that’s needed is a connector cable, which retails at Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stores for just $50.
Cruising for a Deal
October is also National Cruise Vacation Month -- who knew? -- so if you’re looking to book a cruise for your next vacation, you may want to consult the Cruise Lines International Association.
You could save up to $2,000! To find a participating travel agent near you, visit Cruising.org and type in your zip code.
A crowded restaurant on a Friday night is no match for a new iPhone app called TabbedOut.
Created by ATX Innovation in Austin, TabbedOut lets you pay the check whenever you’d like – without having to flag down your waiter or get the bartender’s attention.
Here’s how it works: When you visit a restaurant or bar that has partnered with the TabbedOut team, all you have to do is open a tab on your phone.Your waiter or bartender will give you the appropriate code to link you into the system. Each item you order will be applied to that tab, and when you’re ready to go, you can use TabbedOut to calculate the appropriate tip and pay by credit card. (There’s even a feature that will call you a cab, if needed.)
More than 90 restaurants and bars in 28 cities are available on TabbedOut, with more on the way.
