Discounts from Dell, Bath & Body Works
Dealnews.com has its latest roundup of discounts from retailers. Check out some bargains from Dell, Bath & Body Works and Staples.
Whether you're shopping for home or office essentials, we've found some all killer, no filler deals to help you save a pretty penny — from the comfort of your own home or at the store. You can pick up five reams of paper at Staples for just $1.49, bag two bottles of hand soap for nothing at Bath & Body Works, and more in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Top Paper Deal
HammerMill 8.5x11" Copy Plus Paper 5,000-Sheet Case
Store: Staples retail locations
Price: $1.49 via this printable coupon (scroll down to see it)
Lowest by: $45
Expires: March 20
Do You Need It?: Splashing out on home office supplies is always a dull and expensive chore, especially when you'd rather spend your hard-earned cash on something a little more exciting. Luckily, this budget-busting paper coupon from Staples will save you a massive $25. The next cheapest store charges an additional $45 more for this case, so the deal is well worth the gas money spent in order to make it to your local outlet. The case includes 10 500-sheet reams of 20-lb. copy paper.
Top Freebie Deal
Bath & Body Works 8.75-oz. Hand Soap
Store: Bath & Body Works
Price: Free when you enter your, and a friends', email address with free shipping
Lowest by: At least $10
Do You Need It?: Treating your loved ones doesn't always have to break the bank or, if you opt to partake in this Bath & Body Works deal, cost anything at all. The store is giving away not just one, but two free hand soaps when you divulge two email addresses for its mailing list. That's one of the best ever freebie offers we've seen from the store and it will you save you at least $10.
Top Toys Deal
Target Toy Sale
Discount: 50% off
Shipping: Free shipping
Do You Need It?: Since popular Nerf, My Little Pony, Sesame Street, and Beyblades toys are included in this half-price sale at Target, it is well worth a gander for anyone on the lookout for cheap and cheerful gifts for those upcoming birthdays. It beats a BOGO 40% off toy offer from a fortnight ago and is the best such sale we've seen from the store in recent months. We have our eyes on the Nerf Firevision Sports Flyer Disc (pictured) for $6.29 (a $5 low) and the My Little Pony Pinkie Pie Boutique Fashion Pony for $7.49 (a $10 low).
Top Accessories Deal
Subaru Rubberized Sunglasses
Store: Subaru Gear
Price: $1.25 with free shipping via coupon "DRIVEFREE"
Lowest by: $5
Do You Need It?: The summer may not be approaching as fast as we'd like, but we're still stocking up on bargain beach-ready accessories to flaunt in the sun. These Subaru sunglasses are just about the best deal we've seen on sunnies so far this year, setting you back little more than the change you'll find at the bottom of your bag. Plus, any other store charges $5 more for the pair. They feature a polypropylene frame with rubberized finish and UV-protecting acrylic lenses. (Note that if the cart doesn't load, you may need to click back to the homepage and then select "View Cart" to begin checkout.)
Also available is the Subaru 3" Cowbell for $2.75 (a $7 low) with free shipping via the above coupon code.
Top Laptop Deal
Refurbished Dell Latitude E5410 Intel Core i5 2.4GHz 14.1" Laptop
Price: $229.99 with free shipping
Lowest by: $95
Do You Need It?: Since it's dropped $10 since last November, this build is the cheapest 14" Core i5 Latitude laptop we've ever seen. If that wasn't enough to convince you of its value, it's also $95 less at Newegg than it is for a refurb at any other store. Features include an Intel Core i5-520M 2.4GHz dual-core CPU, 14.1" 1280x800 LCD, 2GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, webcam, and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. (Note that a 90-day warranty applies, but it's unclear who supports it.)
Total Savings: At least $155
