  • If you are looking for a second refrigerator to help with entertaining overflow that doesn’t look like every other refrigerator on the market, look no further than the Amana Green Tea refrigerator. Consumers have the chance to win a Green Tea refrigerator of their own by logging on to Amana’s Facebook page –

    The Green Tea refrigerator is a calming shade of metallic green with leaf etching that can easily transform a space for under $800. The unique design can add a fresh pop of color to an otherwise neutral kitchen or instantly brighten an entertaining space, such as a sun room, wet bar or entertainment room. Some of the Green Tea refrigerator’s key features include a five-bottle wine rack, an ice maker and Spillsaver glass shelves that help keep the fridge clean and organized.

  • Sears has teamed up with The Major League Baseball Association to give moms, families and kids the chance to show their dads how much they love them. The cool part? It’s totally personalized and user-generated. Everyone is invited to nominate the guy in their life if he “rocks” or “excels” in one of the following categories: The Yard and Patio, The Garage, The Style, Home Electronics.
