Keurig recently announced that its uber-popular coffee pod brewer is getting a redesign later this year.  But before you get too excited, you should know that the redesign will end up costing its consumers more in the long run.  The new coffee brewers will include some sort of technology that will only brew coffee pods made by Green Mountain Coffee (Keurig's coffee vendor), or major brands that are licensed Keurig vendors (including Starbucks, Folgers and Dunkin' Donuts).  This technology is meant to directly cut out the competition, meaning more affordable, non-Keurig licensed coffee pod vendors.

Though Keurig CEO and President, Brian Kelley, claims the company is not trying to cut other brewers out and will continue to license unlicensed vendors, it's not exactly a win for consumers.  Off-brand coffee pods are 5-25% cheaper than those made by Keurig's partners.  This means that even if Keurig licenses the cheaper, unlicensed brewers, there will undoubtedly be a cost increase, and consumers will effectively be paying up to 25% more for the same non-Keurig brands that they used to save money on.  Still, it's easy to see why Keurig wants to cut out the competition.  According to Kelley, unlicensed pods accounted for 12% off all coffee pod sales last quarter.  Sounds like they're starting to sweat!

It’s not easy to say no to an additional discount, even if you have to open a new credit card in order to receive the promotion. But step away from the store counter and get the facts first! There’s more to that card than a day of discounts. Taking the time to develop a strategy around new store credit accounts is worth far more than any savings you can receive on a single purchase.

 Consider your Credit 

B&N Mastercard

In this case, 'tis nobler to swipe.

“This will just take 30 seconds.”

The salesperson at your favorite store might make the process seem harmless and fun, but opening a store credit card requires a hard inquiry into your credit report. Initially, it may only impact your score by about 10 points, but as you open more credit cards, the damage will be upwards of 30 points. Since closing accounts can negatively impact your credit even further, it’s wise to plan ahead and pick the stores that will reward you the most. However, don’t let our cautions discourage you from all credit activity; while damage to your credit from opening a new card is unavoidable, it’s not irreversible, and your new account becomes beneficial as you start to build credit from responsible payments.

It’s a good idea to check your credit yourself before opening a card, even if you’ve decided that the savings will be worthwhile. You can download Credit Karma Mobile to run a soft inquiry into your credit for free, without hidden fees or injury to your credit score. In fact, checking your credit regularly will pad your credit report with soft inquiries, eventually removing any hard inquiries conducted previously. Pulling a report on your own credit each day with just over 24 hours between inquiries can effectively bury blemishes from hard inquiries on your TransUnion and Equifax reports within 2-3 months, according to creditboards.com.

Because store cards tend to have higher interest rates and lower credit limits than regular credit cards, you’re going to need to use a little bit of strategy with the accounts you do decide to open. Make sure the balance on your card is always under a third of the credit limit, and make payments in full whenever possible to avoid interest and fees.

The Fitbit Force earned rave reviews when it was initially released, even winning the top spot on TIME's list of the top 26 fitness trackers. But then reports of skin irritation and allergic reactions slowly began to surface until a few days ago when Fitbit halted sales of the Fitbit Force and voluntarily recalled those already sold. How to return your Fitbit Force

While the consensus is that some users likely are reacting to the nickel in a small metal component (a common jewelry allergy), there is speculation that it might also have something to do with the glue used in manufacturing. It's not a hugely serious problem, but Fitbit decided to take action out of an abundance of caution.

You can find the Fitbit Force Return Kit Request Form here.

Here is our take on your options with regards to the Fitbit Force recall, including how you might even make a profit from returning it.  Read the rest of this entry »

Maybe every desk at your office but yours is sporting a bouquet of roses. Perhaps you can all but guarantee that someone will come back to the office next week with a brand new engagement ring that you'll be obliged to politely squeal over. And maybe it's only going to take one more stupidly cloying diamond commercial to push you over the edge.

Well, good for all those happy couples, but you've got better things to do on Friday night because it's been a long week and your pajama pants are calling. Lucky for you, thanks to Netflix, Amazon and Hulu Plus, it also happens to be a killer night to binge on some distinctly non-Valentine-ish streaming video content. Both Netflix and Amazon have released fresh exclusive content this week, but our list, by the whole Brad's Deals team, is a mix of new and old. And those happy couples are totally missing out. 

So bust out your favorite bunny slippers, open a bottle of wine and order a pizza - this is going to be your best singleton's Valentine's Day ever.

Get Some Pizza

Anti-Valentine's Day IdeasOur top pick for your Friday night pizza party is Papa Murphy's "Heartbaker" Pizza for $7. Pour all of your vengeful anti-Valentine voodoo fantasies into slicing it up, and once you're finished you can literally "eat your heart out". The only downside is that it's take and bake, and you have to pick it up - no delivery here.

If that's going a bit too far for you, check out one of these old standbys:

  • Papa John's - 25% off full price menu items with coupon code SAVE25
  • Pizza Hut - Large 3-Topping Pizza for $7.99 with promo code EEOLG3TOP799
  • Domino's - Choose any 2 select menu items for $5.99 each

The Brad's Deals Top 10 TV Series to Binge Watch

We asked the entire Brad's Deals team for their favorite series to binge watch and came up with a pretty sweet list. These are our Top 10, plus a slew of honorable mentions.

If you don't already have a video streaming service, you'll need to get one. Short on cash? Netflix, Amazon and Hulu Plus all have free trials. Just be sure to cancel the trial before the subscription fees kick in if you don't want to spend the cash.

  • Netflix - 1-month free trial for instant streaming video ($7.99/month after trial)
  • Amazon Prime - 30 day free trial, including streaming video, an ebook lending library, and free 2-day shipping on Prime-eligible items ($79/year after trial)
  • Hulu Plus - 1-week free trial, or 2-weeks if you get a friend to invite you ($7.99/month after trial)

1) House of Cards 
Netflix proves that it loves you by releasing Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed political thriller on Valentine's Day. From the opening moments of Season 1, you know exactly who Frank Underwood is, and you're compelled to watch as he manipulates everyone around him. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are both divinely wicked. And just like that, my plans for the evening are made.
Available on Netflix.

Baby equipment manufacturer Graco announced a massive recall of 3.7 million convertible car seats and child booster seats yesterday over concerns that the buckles may trap children in their seats. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommended recalling 18 seat models. Graco has agreed to recall 11 of those, all of which are for toddlers and older children. The seven other models that the NHTSA recommended for recall (and which Graco is contesting) are infant seats.

Recalled models include:
