Get behind the wheel...virtually test drive the all-new Ford Fusion with a mobile device app and explore the car before it is revealed at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in January. A daily video clip will unlock new features leading up to the reveal of the Fusion, the official car of CES! The app can be downloaded at the following link! http://www.
How It Works:
- Capture a Ford logo using the mobile device’s camera and it will appear as a button that starts the program
- The app allows you to drive a digitally camouflaged new Fusion on a track toward video clips that feature insights on technology and design
- As the game progresses, three driving worlds can be unlocked leading up to the reveal, each offering a clearer form of the Fusion and new visual environments

Both Justin Bieber and Blake Lively are both fans of the styling tools from Solano!
· JUSTIN BEIBER loves the 3700 Moda
· The Solano 3300 XtraLite Dryer ($159.95, ulta.com) – their latest launch just for consumers at Ulta.com has great power but is as light as a water bottle.
· NOW AT ULTA, the SleekHeat 450 Flat Iron ($159.95, ulta.com)- the professional staple is now available for consumers. With beveled edges, its considered the best on the market to get a flip under at the ends.

Gift cards have ruled the holidays for several years now, but public desire for these little plastic presents has recently expanded to encompass the entire year.
GiftCardGranny.com recently compiled data from over 70,000 gift card alerts by over 4,000 people with semi-surprising results. The survey found there was only a six-card difference between Walmart and Target, the top two merchants. Other favorites included Amazon, Macy's, Starbucks and Home Depot.
Even more surprising, four fuel and six restaurant companies landed in the top 30, indicating consumers have learned gift cards are good for more than just sweaters and groceries.
Naturally, we all have our favorite merchants and services and, hopefully, will receive one or two cards for them this holiday season. However, if you receive a gift card that wasn't in your top 10 list, you can trade it for cash on Gift Card Exchange Day. This annual, one-day event on Dec. 26 allows recipients to sell unwanted gift cards at the time of year when resellers are paying the highest rates for second-hand cards.

To coincide with the release of Amy Winehouse’s 3rd album and final album Lioness: Hidden Treasures and in continued support of The Amy Winehouse Foundation; Fred Perry has released a selection of pieces from her last collection with the brand on the same day and earlier than expected exclusively on-line at www.fredperry.com
Referencing Amy’s love of the 50s Americana and art deco Miami, the collection features an exclusive print scattered with Cadillacs, juke boxes and cats-eye sunglasses in a palette of pink mist, pale blue and black. In addition, the usual royalties and fees from the collection will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation. Fred Perry will also be making a seasonal donation to the charity.
On Black Friday shoppers got their first deals. On Cyber Monday internet shopping kicked off and set records. Now, on GoodShop Tuesday (December 6), shoppers have the unique opportunity to help their favorite charity and save with exclusive offers – at no additional cost to them – with virtually every gift they buy!
GoodShop.com has partnered with more than 2,500 stores including Amazon, Target, Apple, Macy’s, Toys R Us and others to donate up to 30% of virtually every purchase to the charity of the user’s choice. GoodShop Tuesday features hundreds of exclusive deals available on this special day, so shoppers can save money and give back to their favorite cause at the same time. For example, at 1800FLOWERS.COM, GoodShop features an exclusive coupon for 10% off that also comes with an 8% donation to your favorite charity or school.
According to a new study by Dunham and Company, over two thirds of donors plan to cut back on giving this year due to the tough economy. And this year, nonprofits need more help than ever as more and more people depend on their services. By shopping on GoodShop Tuesday at thousands of popular retailers through GoodShop, shoppers can help fill that gap by turning every single gift into a gift that gives back! The end result is more books for schools, pets adopted, research for cures, oceans cleaned and other important work accomplished by these nonprofits.
More than 103,000 charities and schools are participating ranging from large national nonprofits like the American Red Cross and the Nature Conservancy to local organizations such as the Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin and the Yuma Humane Society in Arizona. We can provide you with a list in your area.
Here’s how it works. Go to www.goodshop.com. Designate your cause. Click through to the store of your choice and shop just as you normally would. You pay nothing extra, but a percentage of what you spend will be donated to that cause. In addition to exclusive GoodShop Tuesday offers, GoodShop every day has more than 100,000 coupons, deals and free shipping offers worth more than $2 million so shoppers can save money while helping their cause.
“I love buying gifts during the holidays, but I admit I feel bad spending so much money when there are so many people in need out there,” says Eleanor Ricey in New York. “Buying gifts on GoodShop Tuesday allows me to both buy my gifts and support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at the same time, which is a cause that is close to my heart. It makes shopping that much better!”
Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, GoodSearch empowers people to change the world through simple everyday actions that raise money for causes people care most about. Launched in 2005, the service currently includes GoodSearch, a Yahoo-powered search engine and GoodShop, an online shopping and coupon portal which works with more than 2,500 top merchants (including jcpenny, Lands' End, Staples, and HP), and GoodDining. To date, GoodSearch has donated more than $8 million to over 103,000 charities and schools designated by its users.
