I have not yet but I don’t shop much.
Anyone have experience or tried it?

Zinc is pretty new, so it doesn’t work with every retailer out there just yet. Currently you’ll see discounts on Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s, and Target. When you go to check out, a big blue speech box (pictured above) will show you your savings for that order. Generally you’ll save between $1 and $5, but it can be more for larger orders. While this isn’t a huge amount of money, you don’t have to do any work for it. You just pay through Zinc instead of the retailer and they take care of everything for you-even Prime shipping if you’re a member with Amazon.
You’re probably wondering about security. Zinc uses Stripe to handle payments, which is the processor for a lot of sites like Reddit, Hipmunk, and Foursquare. Your sensitive info is securely held with them. If you have other concerns before signing up, send them an email and ask a question. If you want to check it out, just download the extension through their web site and buy something on a supported retailer’s site.
I’m really partial to Benatar’s version. She’s got an incredible voice.
It may not be Santa Clause but it’s one of the automobile manufactures if you have a factory installed GPS or other type of factory installed satellite system in your car.
Ford’s Global VP/Marketing and Sales, Jim Farley, said something both sinister and obvious during a panel discussion about data privacy today at CES, the big electronics trade show in Las Vegas.
Because of the GPS units installed in Ford vehicles, Ford knows when many of its drivers are speeding, and where they are while they’re doing it.
Farley was trying to describe how much data Ford has on its customers, and illustrate the fact that the company uses very little of it in order to avoid raising privacy concerns: “We know everyone who breaks the law, we know when you’re doing it. We have GPS in your car, so we know what you’re doing. By the way, we don’t supply that data to anyone,” he told attendees.
Of course Ford has retracted the statement but the cat is out of the bag.
Jim Farley, the global vp of marketing and sales at Ford, tells Business Insider he made a mistake when he implied that Ford gathers so much data from GPS units inside its customers’ cars that the company knows when they’re speeding or breaking the law.
“I absolutely left the wrong impression about how Ford operates. We do not track our customers in their cars without their approval or their consent,” he says. “The statement I made in my eyes was hypothetical and I want to clear this up.”
Whether they do or not, the thing is that thanks to technology, our every move can be tracked by someone. Unless you get rid of your cell phone and drive an older vehicle, someone someplace knows exactly where you’re at.
Because a woman refuses to learn how to use a white walking stick (yeah, she’s “legally blind”) and prefers to keep a large dog instead to help her locate curbs and obstacles (the things those canes used to help blind people with for hundreds of years) she’s balking at an eviction order in her nudist park.
As far as I am concerned the reason they’re kicking her out is that people are fed up with a cold dog nose up their asses or in their crotches. They are, after all, nude.
The rules for pets? More restrictive.
According to a lawsuit filed last year and a subsequent appeal, animals more than 25 pounds violate the condominium association’s rules, and must be “registered at the condominium office.”
Sharon Fowler, a resident, has a black Labrador named Laura, who weighs well over the threshold. The condo association had a problem with this, and sent a letter telling Fowler to get rid of the dog, or move out. Fowler said she had a right to keep the dog. The reason? She’s legally blind, and Laura is her service animal.
“She helps me to get around curbs and obstacles,” Fowler said in her home Monday with Laura sleeping at her feet, “She’s 100 percent necessary to me. She’s my lifeline.”
Before Fowler moved into the community, she was required to fill out an application and pass a background check. She disclosed her need for Laura and the dog’s weight. Her application was approved.
Then in August of 2012, the association sent her landlord a letter saying they needed to address the issue of the dog “immediately.” When Fowler provided documentation of her disability, the association did not withdraw the notice of the violations, according to the lawsuit.
“I felt demeaned, and I felt degraded,” Fowler said. “I’ve never felt so degraded.”
She called prominent law firm Morgan and Morgan and filed a civil rights lawsuit in Pasco court. The suit seeks monetary damages for mental anguish and injunctive relief: basically, she wants to live in Paradise Lakes without being bothered or harassed.
“The association kept demanding more proof of her disability,” said Fowler’s lawyer, Jessica Thorson. “She is legally blind.”
The condo association seemed to back off after the suit was filed, and circuit Judge Linda Babb dismissed the complaint. An appeals court reversed that decision, however, and now Fowler plans to proceed.
