Free(ish) Travel Accessories Including This External Battery Pack
With last month’s Transportation Safety Administration announcement of enhanced screening on electronic devices, I’ve been diligent about charging my devices before approaching airport security.
I also made a mental note to get an external battery pack for additional peace of mind.
Found one today for (almost) free.
Sears has a selection, some of which will earn a rebate equal to the cost of the device (before tax).
For example, the WOW power bank below is priced at $14.99 and would earn a rebate of the same amount.
A few things of note:
- Use store pickup to avoid shipping costs.
- On some items, the rebate is less than the item’s full cost.
- The rebate is not in cash but in the form of Shop Your Way points (the currency of Sears’ and Kmart’s loyalty program). I don’t know when these particular points would expire, but the window usually isn’t huge so don’t forget to redeem them before expiration.
- If you don’t already have a Shop Your Way membership you can sign up during the checkout process.
