Buckyballs aren't a traditional tech item, but they are magnetic, meaning there's science behind how they work. And because science and technology go hand in hand, voila: there's my justification for today's slightly unusual deal.
Today only, and while supplies last (which may not be very long), Sellout.woot has two sets of Buckyballs for $29.99, plus $5 for two-day shipping (which should get them in your hands just in time to stuff them into some stockings).
Update: Sorry, everyone, but the Buckyballs are sold out. Same goes for the monitor deal below. But the Windows bundle is still available, hint-hint. :)
Now, I don't know if this will work for you, but I used coupon code CHANGEYOURPASSWORD to get $5 off my order. That was a kindly Woot offer in response to the whole Gawker password debacle, but I'm not sure if it works for everybody or only those who were directly affected.
Anyway, Buckyballs are tiny magnetic orbs. Each set comes with 216 of them. They don't look like a big deal, but trust me: they're incredibly fun to play with. So fun, in fact, that my kids just made off with my brand-new set, and in fact are constantly fighting over it. Now they'll each have one of their own.
One set of Buckyballs normally runs $29.99, so this is essentially a BOGO-free deal. And the two-day shipping is a nice bit of icing on the gift cake. Grab this deal before it's gone!
Bonus deal: Blowing the doors off yesterday's 22-inch monitor deal, Cowboom has a new 23-inch Gateway LCD for $109.99 (plus $5 for shipping). Specs include 1080p, HDMI, and speakers. That's the lowest price I've ever seen for a 23-incher. The deal is available today only and very likely to sell out.
Bonus deal #2: Remember the
