Deals of the week

Sorry, we don't ACTUALLY sell the dockshound station pictured above. One of my vendors sent me that, but when I tried to order some, it seems they're currently out of stock. Dang!

Anyway, come in this week, buy a Mac and take home a HP F4280 printer. Free. It's not a rebate offer, they're just FREE. While supplies last, natch. And yes, you can combine that with the iPod rebate offer.

Also, it's Customer Appreciation Week. Get 20% off most stuff in the store. NO, computers, iPods, software, gaming consoles and games don't qualify, nor do textbooks, previously reduced merchandise and a few other things. But it's a great chance to pick up a new pair of headphones, a backpack, a cap and t-shirt...see y'all there!

Your mission, if you choose to accept it....

K. Down in November, 'round about Veterans' Day, I wanna have some kind of patriotically themed promotion. It could go one of 2 ways. First, we could do a sale on red, white and blue merchandise, like flash drives, headphones, stuff like that.

But I'd RATHER do it this way - I wanna feature and promote American made products. Problem - there's not a whole lot in the computer and consumer electronics arena that's made here any more (one notable exception - Celly Smellys!). So my humble request to you - if anyone out there knows of computer related products that ARE domestically made, please let me know! You can just leave a comment on this page. Thanks!

It's only July, but I'm already in Back-to-School Mode. Personally, I've fallen into the daily habit of jogging at Magic Island and jumping in the water to cool off and watch the sunrise as a stress-coping mechanism. To help ease YOUR financial stress for Back-to-School we've got the following deals:

* Buy a Mac, get a free (after rebate) iPod Touch. AND, starting Monday, July 13, get a FREE HP All-In-One printer, too (not a rebate, just a free printer!)
* August 17-22, get 20% off everything in the store (excluding, of course, certain items like CPUs and iPods)
* August 24-Sept 5 10-20% off essential BTS items like printers, ink, flash drives, stuff like that

Will announce more sales as they come closer.

Also, heads up:
* Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard will be out in September. NO, I DON'T know the exact date, but we'll probably have a party when we get it on the shelves!
* Windows 7 will be out October 22. I heard it doesn't suck quite like Vista (shhhhh...I didn't actually say that!) AND we'll have it on sale for the first week and a half!

Finally, thought this was good for a laugh. Me, I can only do about 6 of these, but I have a sneaking suspicion Altair's hovering around 90%+.
