Today's Flip Ad contest winner

post by Howard B. Owens in advertisement, Sponsored Post, thebatavian

The secret code today was Edna Gruber, and Jessica Gielow, of Alden, was the 14th person with the correct code who sent in an e-mail.

We'll send $25 to Jessica.

The code was flipped under the Insurance Center ad.

We'll play again next week.

Remember to watch the ads and check out the flip ads for special promotions (which is not the same as the ad used in a contest).

New mobile app: We ask the questions, you win the prizes, get the special offers

post by Howard B. Owens in advertisement, Sponsored Post, thebatavian

In our neverending quest to help local residents connect more easily with local merchants, we're launching a new mobile app called Reacht.

 

Click here for the iOS version.

Click here for the Android version.

Reacht is a fun, interactive way for people to share their opinions on a variety of topics, from politics to baseball, world events to music, hot-button controversies to the amusing topics of society. Participants will also receive unique and special offers from local merchants -- and some national merchants -- tailored to their interests.

We promise you won't get bombarded with a string of daily notifications, but the app uses your smartphone's notification service to ask you poll questions and send you offers.

We will use this app in conjunction with our current daily poll, but we'll also fashion special, mobile-only polls.

There will also be prizes you can win for participating.

The app is free.

Our kick-off next week is being sponsored by Southside Deli. Those who download the app and respond to the second poll question of the day on the app will be eligible to win a $5 gift certificate (we'll give away at least 80 of them over the first two weeks) to Southside Deli.

We're working on obtaining other prizes. (Local businesses, want to participate? Contact me or Lisa Ace at (585) 250-4118.)

Sponsored post: What happened to dental insurance?

Maybe you haven’t noticed, but dental insurance isn’t what it used to be. First of all, count your blessings if you have it at all, because fewer people have it now than 25 years ago. Secondly, insurance premiums have skyrocketed and dental benefits have not. And it is COMPLICATED!!! There are so many plans and each one is different. I can guarantee that the front desk people and office manager at your dental office are working hard to understand your plan and to maximize your benefits. What treatment does this plan cover? What’s not covered? What are my yearly maximums? My deductible or co‐pay? What are those and why do I have them? Does my dental office participate with this plan? Why does my plan say 100% covered and yet I still got a bill? It’s complicated. There is a link to our website and the answer to these questions and more if you are interested. 
 
On the other hand, dental insurance isn’t supposed to cover every dental need we have but it can help. Treatment can sometimes be spaced even over years to help utilize your insurance or if you have no insurance at all. There are other ways to help finance dental treatment as well. 
 
I wish everyone had wonderful dental insurance that covered every procedure and did not cost an arm and a leg. That’s a dream, but that doesn’t mean that one can’t still have a dream mouth. Remember that prevention is the best medicine and if you’d like some more answers please click on the link to our Web site. Good luck!
