$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!

$23.99 Leap Frog Tag Reading System (reg. $49.99) February 16, 2010

What an AMAZING deal! We purchased the Leap Frog Tag Reading System for our 4-year-old son just after Christmas for $49.99. He LOVES it. I love that he can learn to read while wearing headphones in the backseat of the car on road trips…

Well, here’s one HECK of a deal! The Leap Frog Tag Reading System, regularly $49.99 is on sale for $29.99 on Leap Frog’s site, and you can get an additional 20% OFF when you use code LPTHW9. This brings the purchase of the reading system AND the included book to just $23.99 plus tax! If you add another book or two onto your purchase so that the total is over $50, you’ll get FREE SHIPPING too.

Grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, anyone who knows a kiddo in the 4 – 8 age range, please check this out. Not only does the pen “read” the book to your kiddo, it engages your child in educational games within the book. This is far better than a video game, and perfect for that quiet time in the afternoon that all kids need.  You can even follow your child’s progress online!

Expires: Code expires March 31, 2010. I’m not sure when the sale itself ends.
