$6 & FREE shipping: Digital Camera / mp3 Player / Smart Phone case September 29, 2009

Filed under: Gifts,organizing,Photography — Meg @ 6:01 am

I just stumbled on this deal when surfing some new-to-me sites and had to share it!

Ok, people… Why be boring? Why stick with a plain black case for your digital camera? And your poor mp3 player that’s floating around in your purse? Or your smart phone that’s jammed into your brief case? I cringe to think what’s happening to those pricey electronics in the kids’ backpacks these days… Time to liven things up a bit! Here’s a fabulous case to get you out of those winter doldrums that are just around the corner!

You can get the Golla Digi Digital Camera Bag in Tahiti Lime for just $6 and FREE shipping when you use code BENSDEALSA0929. This deal is so good, you may just find yourself ordering a few extra to give as gifts!

Here’s a darn good excuse to eat at Chili’s TODAY! Today – September 28, 2009 – they’re giving ALL of their dine-in profits to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help fight childhood cancer. ALL of their profits.

Whether you’re in the mood for something “healthy” (their quesadilla explosion salad comes to mind) or a grease fill (their oh-too-yummy chicken crispers),  please consider heading to Chili’s at some point today. Dine for a cause!

Find a Chili’s near you.

Good only TODAY, September 28, 2009.

Thanks for the head’s up, Michelle B.!
