Less Is More In First Garage Sale of 2014

Saturday, February 1st, 2014 | Author:

globe-garage_sale_snowIt may be cold here at OWC headquarters here in Woodstock, Ill., but our first Garage Sale of the year is anything but.

Less is more is the theme of this month’s batch of deals as we’ve marked down some of the hold overs that may simply have gone missed. And we’ve activated about 20 new clearance/garage items just to keep it interesting.

Here are just a few of the highlights:

OWC’s August Clearance/Garage Sale On Now!

Saturday, August 10th, 2013 | Author:

globe-garage_saleLife is good. Summer is drawing to a close, it’s time once again for students to be heading back to school, and the OWC August Garage Sale is now underway.

Here’s just a few of the great deals still available:

As always, items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities, so you’ll want to act quickly. Quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.

Pre-Owned Macs Are Perfect For Back-To-School

Thursday, August 1st, 2013 | Author:

A few weeks ago, Apple announced it’s back-to-school offer for current and prospective college students. The annual promotion includes an App Store gift card for up to $100 with the purchase a new Mac, iPad or iPhone. It’s a pretty solid deal, but having graduated from college years ago, I really don’t pay attention to it anymore. Especially since now all you get is an App Store gift card. That’s no fun. When I was in school, we got an iPod with our new Mac – which we immediately flipped for beer money.

However, despite graduating from college and ceasing to care about anything that has to do with school, I found myself once again staring down this deal.

My girlfriend’s younger brother is going to Illinois State University in the fall, and he really wants a new MacBook to take along with him. He also wanted my advice on which model and upgrades to go for since I work for OWC and that makes me the “expert”.

Get Ready To Go ‘Mac’ To School!

Monday, July 22nd, 2013 | Author:

It’s nearing the end of July and that means the stores are all featuring a few specific things—clearance mismatched swimsuits, returned camping equipment from dashed dreams of summer expeditions, and college and back to school gear. When shopping for these college supplies, it’s important to note that you can save a lot of money buying things used. Beanbag chairs work fine when you duct tape the holes (call it an artistic expression), that giant box TV is free and it still works if you drum out the solo from ”In A Gadda Da Vida” on it to get it going, and you know with a little TLC you can scrape the mysterious substance off that used microwave. But there are many things you should never buy used—a comforter, someone’s shower flip-flops, a sandwich maker—all of these things are a little too up close and personal. And then there are some things that everyone will suggest you buy but you shouldn’t buy at all—take for instance the body pillow. That thing will take up over half of your standard issue twin sized bed from 1996 and somehow steal all your covers in the middle of the night. Don’t ask me how this happens, it just does.
