If you’re wondering how I came upon this sensational information, I’ll fill you in. I signed up for FLE’s mailing list and it’s already paying off. Today I received a welcome letter that includes an offer for 10 percent off my entire dinner bill. Oh yeah — sign up and watch the savings come pouring in.
