Summer has officially begun, so queue up the mojitos, set up the beach volleyball, and fire up the grill. These five Editors' Choice deals are geared towards keeping you entertained in case you find yourself feeling 'meh' about the summer. And there's plenty more where these came from, so be sure to pay close attention to our sizzling summer entertainment deals.
$10 Apple iTunes Gift Card
Is It Worth It?: Tired of the radio already? Build your own discography with this $10 Apple iTunes Gift Card for $5, which is the best deal we've seen for an iTunes Gift Card. On a related note, you can also score a $2 Amazon MP3 Store Credit for free via coupon code "MP3S4ALL". (Don't worry if you get the error message; just keep trying.) That is one of the best free Amazon MP3 Store credits we've ever seen. But keep in mind that you must redeem the Amazon credit by June 23.
Buy 1 Ticket, Get the 2nd Free
Discount: 2-for-1 via coupon code "TMN241"
Is It Worth It?: "Bogo" and "Ticketmaster" may have never been said in the same sentence before, but as the best Ticketmaster ticket promotion we have ever seen, you can in fact buy one ticket for select performances nationwide and get the second one free via coupon code "TMN241". (You'll see the discount in-cart once you select two tickets.) As always with Ticketmaster, taxes and fees are extra, but you knew that. There are tons of great deals here: You can see Cirque du Soleil "Zarkana" at Radio City Music Hall in New York or Jamie Foxx in Atlantic City or Peter Pan in Dallas, or Yanni in Portland, and more.

Is It Worth It?: OK! Magazine is the perfect beach reading. You can find out all about Alec Baldwin and Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga and Britney Spears and Katy Perry and oh, don't get us started! Get your 52 issues of OK! Magazine (a $59.95 value) for just $5 via coupon code "OKMAG2" and sink into the hottest gossip of the summer.
1 Month of Netflix Online Streaming bundled with 2 Movie Tickets
Vendor: Google Offers
Expires: June 23
Is It Worth It?: Netflix is rapidly becoming one of the essential utilities of modern life — or perhaps the postmodern life, we're not sure. If you are not yet a Netflix member, you are eligible for 1 month of Netflix online streaming bundled with two movie tickets for just a buck. (Why Netflix is sending their members to the movies is a bit counterintuitive, but whatever. You benefit!) You must stream three shows during the trial period in order to receive movie tickets, which must be redeemed by August 2 (so you can use them on, er, Battleship).
$25 American Express Gift Card
Expires: June 30
Is It Worth It?: It is a statistical fact that every summer activity is improved by an infusion of cash. If you like free money (and who doesn't), American Express is offering a $25 American Express Gift Card for free when you load $200 or more on an American Express Prepaid Card. You can use the prepaid card for routine purchases like gas, groceries, or recurring bills, like your electricity bill. This ties our mention from two weeks ago as the only such offer we've seen for American Express prepaid card holders. (New users are also eligible.)
