Here in the States, the day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday. Why? It’s the day when retail businesses get into the black. Many stores open at 5am (although I’m hearing about some stores opening at midnight!), have extra early-bird specials between 5am and 7am, and then great deals for the rest of the day. I’ve long since lost count of the number of stories that I’ve heard about people being trampled during Black Friday sales, which .
With the launch of Office 2008 just over the horizon, we’re running a Super Suite Deal: buy any edition of Office 2004 (yes, that includes the ultra-inexpensive student edition), and you can upgrade to the most expensive edition of Office 2008 for just the cost of shipping.
But Black Friday is special, and so we’re making the deal even sweeter (suiter?). Buy Office 2004 on Friday, 23 November 2007, and you can get an extra $100 mail-in rebate from us. You can combine this with the aforementioned Super Suite Deal, resulting in something pretty cool (not to mention cheap!). It’s $150 for the student edition of Office 2004, minus the $100 rebate, plus $7 for shipping … so a net cost of just under $60 for you to have any edition of Office 2008. Even better, this is a Black Friday Deal that you can take advantage of from the comfort of your home if you order online from your favourite online store, you don’t have to risk getting trampled.
See you on Black Friday!
