By on October 4, 2013

Most great deals don’t last that long on Ben’s Bargains. That’s why signing up for Deal Alerts is your best bet (and The Driver recommends them).

Here are 10 deals of the week (Sept. 28 to Oct. 4) that you really liked or we thought were pretty good… and even better, are actually still valid, but not for long:

1. Free PhotoShop Alternative

Amazon has a Mac download of Corel AfterShot Pro for free after coupon code. The PC download is not available, but according to our readers you can use your Mac serial number (emailed by Amazon after purchase) with a PC or Linux download direct from It handles RAW files which people like.

Expiration: 10/6.

2. Cheap Shirts

Jockey Store at eBay has a box of 2 Stay-Dry T-Shirts for 5 bucks. You can buy a bunch of these and wear the same shirt everyday. And focus on more important matters. Like pants. See below.

Expiration: Limited time.

3.  Cheap Pants

Aeropostale is helping out the pantsless this week with a fantastic deal on men’s jeans for $12 shipped. You have to check out with PayPal to reap the savings but considering the stakes involved, it’s worth it.

Expiration: 10/6.

4. Keeping the Kids Entertained

Best Buy is currently selling the Philips Twin Play iPad/iPhone Portable Video Viewer for $80. It’s $124 at Amazon right now. The set includes two 9″ LCD displays and is aimed at families who want to keep the kids from climbing all over the backseat.

Expiration: 10/5.

5. Forged with Adamantium Steel…Er, Wait…

Dell’s new Inspiron 7000 Series touchscreen laptops (15″ and 17″) are on sale.  The 15.6″ 4th Generation Core i5 model is $650 shipped with coupon code. The new line features Gorilla Glass displays and forged aluminum bodies (read: Macbook-esque).

6. Like Watching Paint Dry With Less Fumes

Wall decals are all the rage these days.  Senyx-Direct at eBay is selling various wall decal sets for 5 bucks.

Expiration: Limited time.

7. More Affordable AirPlay Speakers

If you’ve got an iOS device, AirPlay speakers are a great option for wireless flexibility. The downside is they tend to be quite pricey. The 6th Ave Electronics store at eBay has open box units of the well-reviewed Logitech UE Air Speaker for $139 shipped. It’s normally around $250.

Expiration: Limited time.


8. You’re Gonna Like the Way You Save

Macy’s has a great deal going on right now, where you can buy a decent Izod suit and two select dress shirts for a total of $101 shipped after code. This is one of their best suit deals yet — the two shirts are not normally part of the sale. Or you can get two suits for $168 shipped.

Expiration: 10/7.

9. For Little Robin Hood or Rambo or Merida…

Here’s a good deal for the kiddos to tuck away until Christmas. Amazon has the Bear Archery First Shot Youth Bow Set for $15  shipped. Usually around $20 or more shipped. Don’t be alarmed by the name — this bow-and-arrow set gets them away from the computer/TV/iPod. Lots of great reviews, but keep the cat locked away.

Expiration: Limited time.

10. Another Cool Tablet Hybrid

Hybrid tablets are proliferating like wall decals, and Microsoft Store has one of the better ones, the ASUS Taichi 21 Full HD Core i5 11.6″ Laptop/Tablet, on sale for $699 with free shipping. It got a good rating from PC Mag, and this sale price is about $85 to $100 less than anywhere else.

Expiration: Limited time.
