you in the loop on products and deals you may not have heard about.
how my horoscope begins: "Today will
be a lovely, breezy day -- so why not get outdoors and enjoy some
of the fresh air?" On that note, I'm leaving my stuffy
office, so no Hot Deals. Just kidding! Would I do that
to you? I do hope you are enjoying this lovely day and enjoy this
edition too. Send your feedback directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It
may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.

Lure Them with This The Pitch: Ball Pro Inc. (asi/38120) has EQP on
Full Wrap Flash Spoons and Rapala Rattlin' Rap fishing lures, which
they say will "make fish attack" (insert scary music from Jaws here).
Think of tournaments, bait-and-tackle shops and any company that's
fishing for business. Also, think of nonprofits that want to reel in volunteers.
Web address: www.ballpro.com. Expires
4/30/08. The Bottom Line: This sounds fishy to me.
Bamboo for You The Pitch: Naturally
sustainable, moisture-wicking, antibacterial and UV-resistant … what's
not to love about Jerico
Sportswear's (asi/63304)bamboo T-shirts (1 at $16,
P) and hoodies (1 at $50, P)? They
even have them in Retro Red. As the Brady kids would say, "Far out!" Check
them out at: www.jericosport.com. The Bottom Line: Eco-comfort.
Chill Pill The Pitch: This
is cool … literally. Chill
Cooling Towels (asi/44814) has sports towels of the same name
that cool you off anytime, anywhere, 20 degrees below body temp, without
refrigeration. They smell like citrus, have natural ingredients like aloe
and menthol and come in small, medium and large. Besides sports fundraisers
and athletic teams, think of resorts, amusement parks, health clubs and
more. Pricing starts at: Qty.-144; list price-$2.99; price code-P. You
can check out their video, including very adorable penguins, at: www.chilltowels.com. The Bottom Line: No sweat, dude.
Take It on the Run The Pitch: Faster
than you can say "super delegates," the
Democratic contenders high-tailed it out of the Keystone State. But you
don't have to be running for president to appreciate a unique travel
gift. For those on the go, Logomark (asi/67866) offers
item #GC1503, a seven-piece, deluxe computer tech travel kit. It includes
a mini mouse, 4-port 2.0v USB hub with retractable cable, mini plug to
USB extending cable, USB LED flex light, universal power adaptor, RJ45
extending cable, and retractable earbud headset with microphone. Pricing
starts at: Qty.-50; list price-$44.45; price code-R. Web
address: www.logomark.com. The Bottom Line: Plug in.
Oh No She Didn't! The Pitch: Remember
Star Jones – once chubby, now
skinny ex-member of The View? Well, she made a super-huge deal
of her wedding 3 ½ years ago and now…Splitsville USA. I wonder
if she'll have a spectacular divorce party. I actually went to one
in the ‘80s, hosted by both ex-spouses, complete with a banner that
said, "Just friends, lovers no more." I guess you could say
they were pioneers, because these days, divorce parties are all the rage.
Anyone looking for banners should take advantage of this deal from Bannersandcards.com
(asi/38310). Buy one banner and get the second (same size) at
Web address: www.bannersandcards.com.
The Bottom Line: It's
a banner day.
Pitch: You thought I was going
to talk about the candidates again, didn't you? But, no, I'm talking actual
flip-flops. John at Neet Feet (asi/73525) sent
me a pair of item #KEYW, featuring leatherette straps embellished
with Swarovski crystals on a pantone color 15mm EVA /rubber sole. I do
take bribes, so I'm writing about them. I'm just kidding! He didn't ask
for anything and they are actually quite delightful and start at: Qty.-100-
list price-$18.99; price code-S. The supplier suggests
they are perfect for special occasions, like Star's divorce party. Do you
see how I tied that all together? Everyone can use a pair of snazzy flip-flops
this time of year. Web address: www.neetfeet.com. The Bottom Line: Thanks, John!
