How I Spent My CL Chips!

121 replies • Last post
Click to show this thread's original post ▼

Ok, I was jacked with the CL chip shop. I redeemed two sets of points for Amazon Gift Certificates. Amazon is the best store in the world; you can get anything there. I thought it would be cool to start a thread to pump up the shop and share what you got with your chips.

I used my Chips (Amazon cards) to buy: A book called the Modern Drunkard, Lord of War Blu Ray, Keurig Coffee, and a book about the Detroit Red Wings/Colorado Avalanche hockey rivalry.

Thanks Casino Listings!

You guys do the neti thing too? I swear by it after reading about it a few years ago on some random internet surfing session. Every time I get a bit of a cold or blocked nose I go for it and the cold always seems to clear up quicker than it used to. I don't have a pot though, I just use one of those squeezable sports water bottles. I keep talking it up to people I know but they all think it is gross or something and won't try it. To me its just like going for a swim in the ocean.

Anyway I decided to search for a pot and look what I found.

Brain eating amoeba! WTF?

Yes, you have to use distilled water. Water from the tap can have the amoeba in it. People have died from using tap water. I microwave whatever I put the water into, plus use distilled water and then microwave the water. I also make sure to clean the netti pot each time with soap and water. On Amazon they were selling these pots and saying to use tap water! As soon as I get my netti pot, I will write and tell them to use distilled water.

Whenever I get stuffed up or not feeling well I use the netti pot. It beats going to the doctor for a sinus infection. They just want to put me on antibiotics.

I recently bought some of my Christmas gifts on Amazon (thank you!), and I also bought a book for me and some more of my supplements. I just purchased a kiva gift, and I am waiting for that to clear so I can donate it. After that, I am hoping to save up for something bigger if I can resist the temptation, like the rest. Wink

True but we would have fun at the casinos! Can you imagine if one of us won a jackpot on a gift card from here?

Casino chips are absolutely on the cards. We are talking to a few casinos at the moment about it. They generally want some reassurance that we aren't going to be sending them hundreds of players all playing on freebies all the time though!

Too bad there isn't a place we could deposit money into an account where we could buy the cards, then it would still be real money for them, but that would mean a loss on your end. I'm thinking about this one. Hopefully I can come up with a solution. Thanks for considering the casino cards though!! Yip, yip, yay!!

I could understand that, and maybe you could put some type of limits on purchasing casino chips, versus the other choices. This site is already so amazing, in all that is offered to its members, CL-Ed, and I really like how you have charities as an option, too. I hope many people will chose the charities once in a while.

I was planning on getting some lenses for my camera, but couldn't find exactly what I wanted. I bought a hot air popcorn popper. I received it in the mail today, and have already used it. It is so easy to use. You just put a little popcorn in the popper, plug it in, put a bowl under the spout, and popcorn is done in about 3 minutes!

I also bought some plant based dish wash liquid. I try to use green products when I can. I also bought some gum 'cause I am addicted to it. I have also given several more Kiva loans. I'm currently only a few pennies away from being paid back my first $25.00 that I loaned. Smile

Thanks again CL for giving us CL chips while having fun here.

I think there needs to be a Porsche or something in the chip shop. How many chips would that take to earn?

Haha! You will be laughing all the way as you drive your Porsche to the bank, when you win, 'Slim.

I just ordered an iPod Touch for 1,000 points for my youngest son's bday. I never thought I would be able to get my son such a nice gift, so THANK YOU Casino Listings! You are THE BEST!!!

Haha Slim. Hope, that is a really nice gift! What actually can you do with an Ipod? I sound so old. I think you can download music, but is there anything else you can do with it?

I am wearing my headphones that I got with my CL chips. They are lightweight and very good. I also got some wash clothes yesterday and some Thom's toothpaste. Thanks CL.

I think this thread may be fun for newbies. I like hearing what other people get with their CL chips.

I won one when I first got here, and I love it since I don't have a phone. Yes, you can listen to music that I can download and there are tons of aps (free and for purchase) you can download. I can also watch YouTube videos on there, take pics and short videos (I have one of Otis hunting minnows at the lake on there) and there is a voice recorder, alarm clock, and on and on. That is all I can think of right now, but I use mine for the music most of the time, and I LOVE it! I can put all my favorites, old and new, on there.

I love mine, too. I won one when I first arrived here, and I never thought I would have anything so modern and fancy, either, lol. Just not something I would spend money on at this stage in my life. I would love to have a fancy phone someday with GPS! lol! My phone is archaic.

I agree 100% with your last sentence. My son will be surprised and thrilled!

I'm telling you this right now Ed: If you make CL Undies I will model them; whether you want me to or not!

Now that it is well established that we won't be getting CL Undies...
