you in the loop on products and deals you may not have heard about.
OK, I am exhausted. I had too much to
keep track of last night: First, of course, American Idol (I'm
sorry, but Jason has got to go); next, I had to tune in
to see who got kicked off of Dancing With the Stars (bye,
bye Mario; I'll miss you!); then, I had to check out primary
results from Indiana and North Carolina (I heart Anderson Cooper).
So, let's see if I can cobble something together for you
after all that.

Why Don't You Open
Up? The Pitch: Most
of us don't have $6.4 million to
lend ourselves (read the political blogs), but suppliers are willing to
put a few extra bucks in your pocket. CNIJ (asi/43008), for
instance, is giving you EQP on bottle opener keychains,
perfect for this time of year, what with picnics, outdoor events, baseball
tailgate parties and more. Check them out at: www.cnij.com.
Expires 7/31/08. The Bottom Line: The key to good times.
Hollah! The Pitch: Here's
a shout out to moms, because Sunday is Mother's Day, and also because
we really do rock. Plus, as I tell my kids, moms are always right (then
they roll their eyes). Peter
Pauper Press Inc. (asi/77802) has a cute little
book (#5599) that honors moms all year long. You Said It, Mom! A Celebration
of Motherhood is
an 80-page hardcover book with a 24K gold-plated charm to keep on the ribbon
bookmark or wear on a bracelet. Think about flower shops; gift stores;
maternity boutiques; daycare centers and more. Pricing starts at: Qty.-100;
list price-$4.36; price code-R. Web address: www.asisupplier.com/77802. The Bottom Line: Word to your mother.
Lip-Lock The Pitch: There
was a report last week about lip gloss causing skin cancer. What?! How's
a girl supposed to keep her pout kissably soft and luscious? Natural Trends (asi/73497) has
an idea: Item #LMJF01 is a new mini jar of SPF 15, petroleum-free, natural
soy-based lip balm, which comes in 6 brilliant colors. It's also
enriched with beeswax, shea butter, vitamin E and aloe and includes FDA-required
drug facts label. Plus you can get them at next-column pricing.
Web address: www.naturaltrends.com.
Expires 5/31/08. The Bottom Line: Pucker protection.
It's For You The Pitch: If
ET phoned home with the Net Phone (#WCP-PTO7) from Ariel
Premium Supply Inc. (asi/36730), it would be
a lot cheaper. Communicate PC to PC via the Internet. Plugs into computer
USB, microphone and earphone ports. It has a computer mouse design, adjustable
volume control and lights up like ET's finger when in use. Requires
Internet connection and outline communication program. Pricing starts at: Qty.-50;
list price-$10.33; price code-R. Web address: www.asisupplier.com/linline. The Bottom Line: Don't put this on hold.
Hey, Dog Breath! The Pitch: Is Poopsie losing friends with her putrid poodle
breath? Custom HBC Corp. (asi/47934) offers
the Doggie Dental pet finger toothbrush (#30505-000PET). Just swipe across
teeth and gums and it freshens as it promotes good oral hygiene with pet-specific
formulas. It's a great and inexpensive idea for any pet-related promotion,
including vets, groomers and trainers. Pricing starts at: Qty.-100;
list price-.89; price code-R. Web address: www.customhbc.com. The Bottom Line: Freshen Fido.
