Information technology, more commonly known as IT, is a booming industry in high demand. But it also requires extensive skill and education to land a job in the field. In this 14-course 2020 CompTIA Certification Training Bundle, you can learn about the foundations of IT work—including topics like cloud networks and security—on your way to a new career.

The goal of this course bundle is to prepare you for the CompTIA certification exams, which are vendor-neutral certifications overseen by the CompTIA trade association. You'll start your education with two classes in CompTIA A+, the industry standard for an entry-level career. The two courses will cover the basic technologies and devices until you’re ready to install, configure, secure, and troubleshoot on your own.

One of the most compelling parts of this 14-course training bundle is the CompTIA Cloud+ course. Cloud+ will train you to become a versatile system administrator for cloud infrastructures, which is a must-have in today’s remote work climate. The cloud-based infrastructure supports the recent demand for virtualized networks and this course will cover the skills you’ll need to run mission-critical systems and troubleshoot.

Cybersecurity has always been in high demand, and the benchmark for best practices in cybersecurity are taught in the CompTIA Security+ course. This certification is globally trusted as the foundation for risk management and network security. There is even a course in cryptocurrency that will help you comprehend the technology behind this growing trend.

The 2020 CompTIA Certification Training Bundle offers a total of 14 courses across 11 areas of focus, including CompTIA A+, Network+, Server+, Linux+, Cloud+, Project+, Core Blockchain, Security+, CySA+, PenTest+, and CASP+. Prepare yourself for certification in all of them, or just a few, with this training bundle for only $69 today.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

The famous 11 herbs and spices recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) remains a closely guarded secret. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take home a firelog that will crackle with the aroma of a fresh bucket of fried chicken this holiday season.

All the smell, none of the calories.Walmart

The KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Firelog ($16) has been a popular novelty purchase for the past two years, and this year, it’s available exclusively at Walmart. Made in partnership with Enviro-Log, the flammable product releases a scent reminiscent of KFC’s distinctive seasoning combination, which the company promises will last around two and a half hours while burning.

KFC originally sold the log directly through their website in 2018 and 2019, but now it's available at Walmart ($16), either on the company’s website or in select stores while supplies last (if it's sold out, Amazon or eBay may be your only other options). Considering KFC is owned by Yum! Brands, which also operates Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, perhaps a Crunch Wrap firelog is in our future.
