Get It While You Can!
The Pitch: Know anyone who can use a little help for their breath? Boy, do I! I love this product and it's oncloseout special, so call today. Item 30455-000 is a mint/floss combo from Custom HBC (asi/47934) and it's great for anyone really, but think about trade shows, conventions, parties, dental clients and more. It was $3.99 and now it's $1.66-P, so that's a 42% savings, according to the supplier (I don't do math). Plus this product qualifies you to win some sort of fabulous trip I believe, but you can check it all out here: http://www.customhbc.com/. The Bottom Line: Fresh approach.
Pop It The Pitch: It could just be me, but I haven't seen these around the industry in awhile, however now you can get Pop-Art Toasters from LC Premiums/LCK & Associates (asi/65953). You know, they are toasters that toast logos onto the bread? They're pretty cool for a whole host of promotions and you will be the toast of the town. (I know, Corny Kathy strikes again, but I don't care.) Anyway, for prices and options, check out this supplier's very awesome website and scroll down to the bottom to click on the toaster link: http://www.lcpremiums.com/. The Bottom Line: Make some bread.
Table for One The Pitch: Readers Debbi and Erin wrote and asked me to spotlight a USA-made new product, so here's one that I think is pretty unique. It's from DEVO Products Inc. (asi/49484) and it's just perfect for business travelers. The folding travel table attaches with two large hooks under the pull-up handle of carry-on luggage or a wheeled computer case. Once the table is set up you can stand and work or lower the adjustable pull-up handle of your carry-on to work on your laptop or eat a nice lunch atop it (my grandma always called all food "nice" i.e., "have some nice chicken soup," and I have taken to doing that.). Pricing starts at: 50; $39.90-Q. See it here: http://www.traveltable.com/ The Bottom Line: Pull up a chair.
Correction Notice The Pitch: Think about it: How many totes do you own yourself? How many do you use? I'm guessing that these days, it's probably a lot, as more and more people are using totes for their groceries and lots of other things they carry around. As you will see from the picture ad in today's edition, Bullet (asi/42424) has totes that are totally awesome. In our October issue of Advantages magazine, though, the pricing on the ad they ran was incorrect (hey, it happens). But you can see the correct information and pick a tote for your next promotion by clicking here: http://tinyurl.com/PolyProCorrect. The Bottom Line: The price is right.
