First, I promised to share Dell Computer’s December offer for UTMB employees, part of its Employee Purchase Program. I’ve been posting these for about a year; this program allows us an opportunity to share the benefits of volume pricing. Dell_Great_Holiday_Gift_Upgrade-December.pdf.
I’m not sure I’m actually doing anyone a favor with this next one, but we do have a Whataburger right next to campus and I know people frequent it. I am not guilty for what this may do to anyone’s pre-holiday diet . Bon appetit. Scratch the Whataburger deal. I recieved a polite note from the burger chain’s PR people this morning: “It has come to Whataburger’s attention that an unauthorized, unreleased version of a proposed internet coupon promotion called the ’12 Days of Whataburger’ has been circulated via email. These are NOT valid coupons and will not be honored at Whataburger restaurants. As a result of this unfortunate incident, please be informed that the proposed promotion will not be rolled out. Thank you for your understanding.” The web strikes again.
Remember the Houston Rockets are offering another UTMB Night in the Toyota Center on Dec. 12, as they take on the Detroit Pistons at 7:30 pm. Discounts range from $15 to $40 per ticket, and tickets are purchased directly from Rockets. See their flyer (PDF) for more information.
There’s a holiday free parking offer from the City of Galveston to support a Strand shopping habit they’d like many people to adopt. The deal: free downtown parking Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., now through the end of December. See the release.
Or, you might choose to take advantage of the special holiday trolley service being offered, and take advantage of special offers from Strand Area merchants. Details are here…
