Check out these online deals for a new Dell laptop, Tommy Hilfiger fashions, a rebate on office copy paper and more, care of Dealnews.com.
Whether you're working hard on those memos or sleeping through to avoid the workload, we've found some useful freebies that will make your hump day a little less mountainous. We've spotted a 5-ream paper case and a sleep-tracking alarm iOS app for absolutely nothing! This loot, and more great deals are in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Top Freebie Deal
Staples 8.5x11" Copy Paper 5-Ream Case
Store: Staples retail locations
Price: $0 (present this coupon in-store at purchase and enter the ID Number here for a $24.99 Easy rebate)
Lowest by: $15

Do You Need It?: Splashing out on home or office essentials is never exciting but an unfortunate, and often pricey, necessity. Staples however, is offering 5 reams of copy paper for absolutely nothing when you make the trip to your local outlet. That's a saving of at least $15, when compared to a similar case of paper at the next cheapest store. Although you need to part with cash initially, you will receive it every cent back after purchase via an online rebate.
Looking for an equally good deal on less paper? It also offers the HammerMill 8.5x11" Copy Plus Paper 500-Sheet Ream for $0 (a $6 low) when you purchase it in store for $7.99 and present this printable coupon. After purchase, enter your ID Number for a $7.99 Easy rebate.
Top Toys Deal

Store: Novelty Toys via Amazon
Price: $60.48 with free shipping
Lowest by: $128
Do You Need It?: Adding to your (or your kids') LEGO collection can cost a pretty penny, but this generic London Bridge set from Amazon is cheap, cheerful, and most importantly, compatible with everyone's favorite big-brand building bricks. It's dropped by $128 to a very low price for such an extensive set. It features over 1,000 pieces, leaving enough to spare to get stuck in your shoe.
Top Designer Deal
Tommy Hilfiger Sale
Store: Tommy Hilfiger
Discount: 40% off sitewide via "SLICKFF40" & 20% off 2 items or 30% off 3 or more
Do You Need It?: Designer threads rarely come cheap, so we're always on the lookout for low-cost big-brand bargains. Tommy Hilfiger is hosting its best ever stacking percent-off coupon deal and slashing prices across the store. (Note that some exclusions apply, including watches and fragrances.) Two choice options are the Tommy Hilfiger Women's Oxford Stripe Shirt (pictured in Blue) for $41.40 ($28 off) or the Tommy Hilfiger Men's Oxford Stripe Shirt for $29.70 ($20 off).
