Sugar Shack Donuts: Hand Made. Hand Cut. Hand Dipped.
Every day, owner Ian Kelley posts a Facebook message with a way to get a free donut. Sometimes it’s a free donut with drink or food purchase, but often it’s for doing something zany like wearing a Santa hat or mustache. (Today’s free donut challenge is to recite a haiku about donuts)
“Asked how the tradition got started, [Kelley] seems surprised. Giving them away seems obvious to him: ‘Everyone should get a doughnut!’ he says.”
The shop is located at 1001 N. Lombardy St.

Also speaking of donuts, this Thursday, December 12, is “Day of the Dozens” at Krispy Kreme – print a coupon for “buy one dozen, get a dozen original glazed Free”
Via Babies R’ Us Facebook page, go here to print a coupon for $5 off any purchase at Babies R’ Us or Toys R’ Us. Coupon is valid in-store through 8/16, and excludes some categories such as diapers and wipes. The barcodes are unique for one-time use.
Also available on Toys R’ Us Facebook page here.
Today Facebook introduced a “promoted posts” option for page owners. Facebook now gives me the option to pay $15 every time I put a post on Facebook to ensure that more Richmond Bargains fans see the post in their newsfeeds.
“Doesn’t that happen anyway? Don’t I see your updates because I “Like” the page?”
Nope. Because of Facebook’s EdgeRank system which has been in place for a while, my posts currently only appear to some of you, some of the time (only about half, or less, of Richmond Bargains fans are shown any given post). Facebook helpfully filters the rest. The less you interact with the page, the less you see.
What’s a fan to do? If you like being updated about the latest great deals and free events in Richmond (call me crazy, but I assume that’s why folks became fans of the page in the first place!) you have a few options –
2. Add Richmond Bargains to a Facebook interest list. This only helps if you’ll remember to check the list you create
You can access this list from the sidebar of your Facebook home page, under Interests
3. Subscribe to email updates. You can sign up to receive daily (here) or weekly (here) email updates from RichmondBargains.com. I feel like this is moving backward, but it may be the only way to be sure you’re not missing anything.
Oh-so-ironically, I’m going to fork over the promoted post dough in hopes that everyone sees this and is aware of their options for keeping up-to-date since I don’t plan on promoting posts!
Thanks fans! Y’all are great and I love sharing deals with you 🙂
Facebook users that are Domino’s Pizza fans – be on the lookout for an Artisan Pizza Giveaway on Domino’s Facebook page, every day from today through Thursday.
(25,000 pizzas today, 20,000 Tuesday, 15,000 Wednesday, 15,000 Thursday). The start time varies and isn’t announced in advance, so it kind of requires stalking the Facebook page. You didn’t have any work to do today anyway, right? When this promo ran last, the giveaways went live in the afternoon.
Limit one free Artisan pizza per person. $7.99 value.
