On the news, I just watched a story about how lots of people are hitting the post-holiday sales (and on the East Coast, braving the snow to do so!). We decided to make bargain shopping possible while warm and cozy inside by extending a coupon (and creating a new one!) on the Marketing Mentor Toolbox.
These promo codes are good through Jan. 6:
- Save $25 off a $100 purchase with “SAVE25″
- Save $50 off a $200 purchase with “SAVE50″
