Welcome To The CantBarsed Blog

Thanks for stopping by. This is where I let off steam and talk about affiliate marketing, promotional codes, freebies, Apple stuff and anything else which motivates me to post (which judging by my track record isn't much)...

Happy Christmas & New Year

I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and thank everyone who has used CantBarsed.com to save money while shopping online this year, it really is very much appreciated.

There are still a few stores taking orders right through until Friday and some stores have sales starting this week. Check our Christmas Last Orders & SALEs paage for the latest news.

The lingerie stores are always the last to call time - they must know us men will leave it until the last minute, which reminds me...

Breast Cancer Awareness


My wife Deb recently had a breast cancer scare, which thankfully turned out to be harmless, but it made us realise how suddenly family life can change and how lucky we are so we're going to donate £1 to Breast Cancer Care for each Christmas greeting message posted (up to a maximum £500) and you even get the chance to win some instant snow. We've left last years 21 greetings online to get you started so why not send your friends and colleagues to our greetings page?...

Following on from my last update we all enjoyed our day trip to London. The trains ran on time and the Blue Man Group were amazing, almost as good as the Las Vegas performance but the tickets for the London show were MUCH cheaper.
My tip is to buy Blue Man Group tickets in the front 4 rows, they come with free ponchos but only cost half the price and I haven't seen anyone get seriously covered in goo - yet!

Wow, I really can't be arsed!


Even I'm shocked how few entries I've posted to this blog this year and it's almost Christmas again! We've skipped right past Halloween - or I would have had it not been for my daughter Natasha's top pumpkin carving, bought to you in the widescreen format it deserves - go Natasha Tarrentino!


Since my last post I've driven an Aston Martin DB9, Lamboghini Gallardo and Ferrari 550 on a track day, courtesy of top experience company Buyagift, which was pretty damn exciting BUT ever since making airfix models and going to air-shows I've always been into planes and over the summer I got to fly a stunt plane through most of the manourves I've watched at air-shows dozens of times. It was the best experience ever... ever.

Things have also been hotting up on the business front. We finally managed to buy the cantBEarsed.com domain from the guy who has owned it since we set up cantBarsed.com and it's great to have that in our portfolio - although it was a painful expense.
With all the hype surrounding the launch of the .eu domains we also bought cantbearsed.eu and cantbarsed.eu to avoid going through the same pain barrier again.
At the moment all the domains end up at cantbarsed.com but if you have any ideas what we could do with the cantbearsed.com domain we'd love to hear them - making email accounts available on the cantbearsed.com domain would be quite cool but they would have to be paid accounts because we can't find a good free webmail provider to work with (suggestions welcomed) and we still have several thousand cantbarsed.com webmail accounts live.


I'm taking the kids to see the Blue Man Group in London and having seen them in Las Vegas I know they're going to love it. Will try to remember to report back.

In the meantime I hope all your Christmas preparations are going well, remember to use our promotional codes pages to save a few quid while you're shopping online.
