{Expired} Awesome Deal on Laminating Machine at Amazon

Amazon deal on Scotch Laminator

{UPDATE: Sorry, guys! It looks like the price has gone back up to around $35+. I’ll keep an eye on it, but it looks like this deal is expired for now. Hopefully you got in on it if you wanted a laminator!}

What on earth does a laminating machine have to do with keeping Kosher on a Budget?! Well, before you think I’ve totally lost my marbles, here’s my train of thought: A few days before Sukkot, I posted on my shul’s list serve that I was looking for recommendations on places to get stuff laminated. I keep a stack of my kids’ artwork throughout the year to use for decorating our sukkah and I wanted to get some of the nicer pieces laminated (good thing, too, since we’ve had a ton of rain!).

As I shopped around at Kinko’s and Office Max, I was astonished at some of the prices – $15-20 per large sheet! Fortunately, a friend offered to let me laminate a few pieces on her home machine. Now, these non-industrial sized machines only do 8.5 x 11 sheets, but sheesh, I can trim down the larger pieces to avoid paying $20 a pop!

So enthralled with the laminating process (any other “school supply” geeks out there?), I checked out Amazon to see how much it would cost to buy a laminator of my own. It was still kinda pricey, so I didn’t order it. But, doing that search triggered an email alert from Amazon, which means when there is a product on sale that I’ve recently searched for, Amazon sends me a notice about it.

Imagine my delight when I logged on tonight and found an email from Amazon letting me know that their 4.5-star rated, Scotch Thermal laminating machine is on sale for just $17.99 – that’s almost 80% off the original price. Plus there is a sweet $20 rebate deal on the sheets that go with it, which  means you can get this already low-priced machine PLUS 50 laminating sheets for just $11.98 – shipped! A big hat tip to Hip2Save‘s lovely commenter, Jenelle, for the details on this awesome rebate!

Here’s how to work the deal:

Buy the Scotch(TM) Thermal Laminator by clicking on this link. Note: It will say $34.90, but down below the price, you will see “New from $17.99″. Click on that link and it will still give you the $17.99 price.

Buy one package of the 50-count Scotch(TM) Thermal Laminating Pouches for $13.99

= $31.98, which qualifies for free shipping with Amazon Super Saver Shipping (or free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime, if you signed up for Amazon Mom)

When you get your package from Amazon, submit your receipt for the $20 Scotch laminator + sheets rebate.

= $11.98 Final Cost after sale & rebate for laminator plus 50 sheets!

You can bet your sweet little laminated artwork that I’ve already submitted my order. And thanks to my stash of $5 Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks, this puppy will actually be a money maker for me! HOORAY!

P.S. Laminated decorations or not, you are still more than welcome to join us at my Virtual Sukkah Hop. I can’t wait to see more pictures of your sweet homes away from home. If you’ve got questions about how to upload your pictures, email me at kosheronabudget AT gmail DT com.
