Shop for the best ink/toner prices — and enter to win a $25 gift card.Posted by Donna Freedman on Nov 21, 2013 | 166 comments
Time to brace yourself for the annual holiday letters – those recaps of hot promotions at work, straight-A report cards, paid internships at Fortune 500 companies, swank housing or automobile upgrades, fabulous vacations and general lack of any downturn.
Throw in a photo of a staggeringly photogenic nuclear family posing with the family pooch and the recipients feel like jumping off bridges.
Their own jobs aren’t going nearly so well, their kids are struggling with algebra and their dogs are butt-ugly (though loyal).
The good news: Paper letters are going the way of the dodo.
The bad news: Now that they’re done electronically the sender can attach video of Junior’s trumpet recital.
How’d you like a $25 gift card to take your mind off the issue?
This week’s giveaway is sponsored by InkJetWilly.com, part of the same company that includes sites like Gift Card Granny and Coupon Sherpa, Inkjet Willy lets you enter the printer brand, series and model to find compatible cartridges.
So if you’re printing out your letter – or any kind of personal correspondence or work-related stuff – check InkJet Willy for the best available price. Those interested in recycling can get a 10% discount for re-manufactured cartridges by using the code WILLY10 for the price break.)
To call attention to these deals, InkJet Willy is offering a $25 gift card to Amazon.com as this week’s prize. And if you’d rather shop locally and/or treat yourself a little? Choose $25 in scrip from Starbucks, Walgreens, CVS or Regal Cinemas. Budget boosters all, no matter how you choose to spend them.
Full disclosure: I actually like annual holiday letters, because they give me a chance to catch up with people I might not see for a year or more. However, I can do without the trumpet solo.
