This afternoon, I discovered a very small nick on the top cover of my laptop. This is most likely because I cart it around from meeting to meeting, in the office and out at restaurants, and I lock it up under a pile of notebooks whenever I leave it at my desk.
While I appreciate the sleek shiny dolphin-like appearance of my naked laptop, I decided to get it a nice cover to prevent wear and tear. I was all set to get the Incase cover when Jon reminded me to check reviews.
After reading some negative reviews (which I won’t post, because I haven’t personally tried this case, so I don’t know how accurate they are), I decided to keep shopping.
Speck’s price was 50% off $50, which was exciting. Having to pay shipping was sad (amazon has spoiled me) but on a whim, I did a quick Google search for coupon codes and found two valid codes on retailmenot. The codes worked together on the Speck site, knocking off about $11. Good deal, yes? (Or, an evil consumer plot to make me THINK it was a good deal?)
When I actually receive this case and try it out, I’ll follow up with a review either praising or trashing it. I’m excited about the 74 vents in the bottom and the fact that it is a pretty aqua color.
If it keeps my laptop from getting dings and scratches, I’ll be happy. If it causes my laptop to overheat or prevents it from opening more than 90 degrees, I will set the case on fire and video tape it for your amusement. So you see, it’s really a win-win situation here.
When you buy something online, do you bother to search for coupon codes? What sexy money-saving sites do you frequent?
