33% OFF at Borders/Waldenbooks = BOB Books for $11.38 May 27, 2010

Summer is here! Time to swim, play, splash, and READ! So, my 4.5-year-old came home from preschool last week and announced he wanted to learn how to read. Hallelujah! Based on recommendations from friends who are teachers (and parents), I investigated the BOB Books. My first stop? Amazon, of course. They were $11.38 for a set there.  But I needed them RIGHT AWAY. The solution? This deal!

Here’s a printable coupon for 33% OFF the list price of one item at Borders or Waldenbooks! For this must-have beginning readers book set, it brought the original price of $16.99 down to $11.38 — matching Amazon’s price and allowing my soon-to-be-reader to have them NOW!

Chances are, if you’re reading this post, you’re already beyond the BOB Books yourself… So use this deal for something for you! If you’d rather shop online, use code BGA7757M. (Just FYI, you’ll need to be a Borders Rewards member for this deal, but that’s free & easy to set up if you’re not one already.)

Find a Borders or Waldenbooks near you.

And, I’m excited to report he’s already read books 1 & 2 in set 1 of the BOB Books. This is awesome!

$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.
