$10 OFF $25 at Office Depot this week July 12, 2010

Oh, the promise of an office supply store. You enter through their automatic doors and see the aisles and aisles of organizational opportunities! Binders! Sheet protectors! Post-its! Sharpies! Yes, I grew up with a father who instilled in me a love of office supplies. I think it started way back when he used to bring home those fabulous Marks-A-Lot permanent markers and reams of recycled printer paper (with the holes on the edges) from the office. The good old days!

Nowadays I keep my ears to the ground for great deals on office supplies. Here’s one I LOVE! Print this coupon to save $10 OFF your purchase of $25 or more at Office Depot this week! It is even good on “technology, furniture, supplies and more!”

Oh, what am I using my coupon for? Well, I’ve started my half-marathon training and have decided my poor iPhone has been tossed to the ground one too many times. I intended to use a previous coupon to buy an arm band, but missed the deadline (grr!). So, I’m off to Office Depot to try out an XtremeMac Sportwrap this week. Originally $29.99, I’ll get it for $19.99+tax with the coupon. I hope it is comfortable!

$10 OFF $25 at Office Depot = $20 iPhone arm band! May 26, 2010

The beauty of my iPhone is that it is the one thing I need for phone, music, tracking my distance, and more when I run. The problem is that I don’t  yet have an arm band for it and I tend to drop it… Sweaty hands plus exuberant running equals terror for my phone! With this deal, I can get an arm band for just $20!!

Here’s a printable coupon for $10 OFF your purchase of $25 or more at Office Depot. And I found this arm band on their site for just $20 (orig $29.99, less the $10 OFF coupon!). NOTE that the coupon is good in-store only, so call ahead to make sure they have the arm band in stock for you!

Not in need of this item? No worries! You can still use this coupon for a zillion other things at Office Depot, and some of their competitors (call those stores first — like Office Max, Staples, etc.). Stock up on school & office supplies!

Find an Office Depot near you.

FREE Tech Support! May 16, 2010

CORRECTION (5/16 3:15pm): Real Simple’s article was incorrect. According to the Sam’s Club site, the free tech support is only for items purchased at Sam’s. Sorry folks!

ORIGINAL POST:

I just read the MOST AMAZING little article in the June 2010 issue of Real Simple (p. 192), and learned something INCREDIBLY VALUABLE!

“[Sam’s Club] now offers its members FREE TECH SUPPORT on electronic devices, even if they weren’t purchased at Sam’s Club. Experts are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide assistance with installation, setup, and troubleshooting on computers, TVs, home-theater systems, digital-music players, and more.”

WOW! FREE TECH SUPPORT! All you have to do is be a Sam’s Club member (~$40/year) and call toll-free (877) 758-4346.

Now, that’s a number to put on speed dial!
