Spring has finally sprung (pay no attention to the snow that is currently in the forecast), so get yourself outdoors to soak in the longer days, and while you’re doing that you can check out the following deals I found this week right here in South County:
- Staples’ Five Days, Eight Deals is going on now. You can save up to $250 on an HP Pavilion DV6 laptop by logging on to www.staples.com and signing up for their e-mail specials. You can then redeem up to eight great coupons that can save you hundreds of dollars on products like laptops, Photosmart premium printers and even a Kodak Mini pocket Video Camcorder. You must have the online coupons however. Offer expires March 26. And if you don’t have one yet, be sure and get your Rewards card for even more savings.
