Keeping you in the loop on products and deals you may not have heard about.
April 27, 2011
Hi there, all my buddies out in Readersville. Here I go again with my plea that you email me directly at my personal email address; don't just hit reply to "Hot Deals," because then it goes into another inbox with thousands of others talking about enhancement meds and whatnot. So, I don't get to read it and I won't ever know if you want me to be a LinkedIn connection, if you want me to delete you from the subscription list or even if
you simply want to extend a friendly hello. Enjoy this edition and don't forget: Send your feedback directly to: email@example.com. It
may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.
For additional information, contact the supplier. To unsubscribe,

The Joe Show: Royal Wedding Items
Wondering what street vendors are selling to commemorate the big royal wedding on Friday? Counselor has procured a bunch of ad specialty items – all emblazoned with Will & Kate wedding logos and images – that are currently taking over the streets of London.
In this special edition of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley shows off some of these items and gives ideas for how similar products can be used stateside.
Click here to watch the Royal Wedding episode of The Joe Show.
Happy Talk The Pitch: I was in my glory last night: Chinese take-out (check); a 90-minute episode of "Glee" (check); followed by a brand-new talent show, "The Voice," which might be my new favorite (check). Kathy was a happy camper. You know what else makes me happy? Delicious treats. Dard Products Inc. (asi/48500) delivers with a brand-new line, including a pail filled with gourmet popcorn covered in white chocolate. Awesome! Pricing starts at: 25; $13.76. See it here: http://www.tagmaster.net/. The Bottom Line: Sweet and salty.
Flying High The Pitch: People are pretty excited around here about the Flyers overtaking the Sabres last night. I even saw a Septa bus this morning with Go Flyers in the space where the stop is supposed to be displayed. Color Promotions (asi/45775) has great new large, felt, full-color pennants, that are perfect for promoting spirit and pride. Think of these for sports, fundraisers and college recruiting programs. The one they are showing on ESP shows a picture of a varsity cheerleader with her name, so there's an idea too. Pricing starts at: 50; $4.20. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Loud and proud.
Alarmed and Ready The Pitch: I don't know about you, but I will be up at 4 a.m., with a nice mug of coffee, watching the royal festivities from my bed on Friday morning (and my husband will turn over and say, "Really?"). At times like these, a great alarm clock comes in handy. AlightPromos.com (asi/34194) has a fun light-up LED digital alarm clock, which features time, day of week, month/date and temperature. Includes 3 replaceable AG3 batteries. Pricing starts at: 100; $5.82. Click here: http://www.alightpromos.com/. The Bottom Line: Wake up to the possibilities.
Don't Sweat It, Sweetie The Pitch: If Prince William gets cold feet, he could use one of the stress relievers from YafaLine (asi/98760), available at EQP through May 31. For his purposes, I like the heart-shaped version (item AC324). In fact, this would be a fun idea for weddings and many special events, not to mention health fairs, of course. Check it out: http://www.yafaline.com. The Bottom Line: Give me a little squeeze.
