By itself, an 8GB flash drive for $10.99 shipped is one mighty sweet deal--especially if there's no rebate involved (cough, Tuesday's deal, cough). But a drive in your choice of 210 color combinations with custom engraving? That's just out of this world.

A company called Pexagon has a totally customized 8GB swivel flash drive for $10.99 shipped. That's after entering coupon code WEB8GB8H6 at checkout. (The regular price is $29.99.)

What's cool about these drives is that you get to choose from 15 body colors and 14 clip colors, for a grand total of 210 possible combinations.

From there you can select a theme ("Happy Mother's Day," "My Documents," etc.) to have engraved on one side of the swivel clip, and then add up to two lines of personalized text to the other side.

Pretty neat, eh? This could be a nice little gift item for the mom, dad, or grad in your life.

I have no idea how long the coupon code will be active, but it worked for me as of 9 a.m. ET today. Might be good all weekend, might expire at noon (which would be sad). Grab one of these while you can! It's definitely one of the best flash drive deals I've seen.

Bonus deal: In the market for a desktop-replacement laptop? Today's Woot is worth "wooting" about: a refurbished HP G72-227WM 17.3-inch laptop for $369.99, plus $5 for shipping. That's a killer price on a system with a dual-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a comparatively mammoth screen. Like all Woot deals, it's available today only, and while supplies last.
