Rockin’ Jump San Diego – Giveaway Time!

Posted on: December 16th, 2015 by Kate Hamernik


ROCKIN’ JUMP San Diego opened officially in November 2015 and is welcoming San Diego to come have fun and get lots of exercise.  ROCKIN’ JUMP San Diego has a simple goal – have fun while you are working out! It’s the Ultimate Trampoline Park and tons of fun for kids of all ages. Basically, Rockin’ Jump is Fitness Disguised as Fun. Rockin Gym says ditch the stairclimbers and treadmills – instead bounce in their open jump arena, play dodgeball on a trampoline, do flips, dive into foam cubes – and more!  Get together with your friends at ROCKIN’ JUMP after school, on the weekends – or even host your next fundraiser or birthday party there.

Make sure to read about safety at Rockin’ Jump before you go – they are serious about their safety and you will need to follow the rules.  One simple thing to remember – you will need special grip socks when you visit – you can purchase the first time you come in and bring them with you on future visits – you cannot choose to skip the socks – and you cannot wear regular socks…. so keep that in mind the first time you visit.  Socks are not overpriced – just $2 a pair and again, you can bring them back with you time and time again.

Rockin’ Jump boasts that they are safe, clean, and fun!

Make sure to check out Rockin’ Jump San Diego on Facebook – it is a great way to keep up on specials and events!

OK – so who here would like an opportunity to win FOUR one hour jump passes for Rockin’ Jump San Diego?  Giveaway below!  One lucky reader is going to win FOUR one hour jump passes!  Please note – this is ONLY for the Rockin’ Jump in San Diego so please only enter if you can visit that location.  Passes will be mailed to the winner by Rockin’ Jump directly.  Please note – tickets DO NOT include the $2 socks necessary for admittance.  If you are already someone who has been to Rockin’ Jump please remember your socks – if you have not been before you will need to purchase the sock – I know it is a bummer, but socks could not be included in the giveaway – please keep that in mind when entering.  OK – best of luck to all!

Giveaway form ends on December 24th – winner will be announced and contacted by / before December 27th – winner will be contacted by or before December 27th and will need to respond within 72 hours or prize is forfeited and will be awarded to another contestant.

With heating prices going up, people are looking toward “zone” heating as a way to save money. We have options for turning an existing decorative fireplace into a heat producer, as well as freestanding gas, wood, and pellet burning stoves and fireplaces.
If your current fireplace is in need of a makeover, we can help with that also. We sell a line of quality, realistic, gas log sets with options to fit every décor.  Hennings also sells fireplace doors to provide a quick update for an old fireplace. If you are remodeling or doing new construction we work with homeowners , DIYers, and contractors to help with fireplace or stove placement as well as installation.
Since we live in beautiful southern California we also have ways of heating up your outdoor living spaces.  We sell outdoor fireplaces as well as pellet patio heaters (a great alternative to propane heaters) to help keep you warm in the evenings.
If you love to BBQ we sell a full line of pellets BBQ’s and smokers. Once you eat food cooked on a pellet grill you will never go back to your traditional grill.

  • 3 “Louisiana grills” brand of bbq rubs

This is a very manly prize that I wish I could enter for my husband, but I think that is like a conflict of interest or something.  😉

Chuck E Cheese Giveaway to celebrate Paddington!

Posted on: December 15th, 2014 by Kate Hamernik


With three little ones in the house we are always excited to hear about a family friendly movie coming to theaters!  I am excited to announce that Paddington is coming to theaters just after the holidays on January 16!  We have not seen this movie yet, but the trailer below had my kids cracking up!  I am thrilled to share that Chuck E Cheese and the makers of Paddington have teamed up with San Diego Deals and Steals for a quick giveaway!

* From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. *


The all star cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.



Chuck E. Cheese is teaming up with everyone’s favorite bear, Paddington, in preparation for the January 16 release of Paddington, the movie, starring Hugh Bonneville and Nicole Kidman. Beginning November 24, Chuck E. Cheese’s locations will offer a Paddington travel tag with purchase of any meal or token package. Plus, guests will receive three more tokens for every additional visit with the travel tag in tow. Offer expires on 12/31/14. Only at participating locations. Food purchase is required. To find your nearest Chuck E. Cheese’s location, visit

Everyone can take advantage of the fun deal at Chuck E. Cheese – but we have a special prize for one reader here as well!  One lucky San Diego Deals and Steals subscriber (make sure to subscribe to our e-newsletter – it is FREE and you can always unsubscribe after the contest) is going to win a prize package for a fun family night at Chuck E. Cheese!  Pizza, soft drinks, and game tokens! Woo Hoo!
