If you're a person who hates rebates, you should probably stop reading right here and just skip down to the bonus deals. They're quite good. Yep, there you go, OK, buh-bye.
Now then. Bluetooth headsets may be a little dorky-looking, but they enable you to keep both hands on the wheel while driving--and I'd rather look dorky than plow into a tree.
Adoroma (a photography-gear site, go figure) has the Samsung WEP301 Bluetooth headset for free. Yep, free.
OK, free eventually. The headset sells for $23 shipped, but there's a $23 mail-in rebate [PDF] that brings your final total to $0. The rebate offer is good until March 31, though it's entirely possible the headset could sell out before then.
CNET hasn't reviewed the WEP301, but the 80-plus user reviews at Amazon are mostly positive. The big complaint seems to be with the ill-fitting plastic earloop, but I think you can ditch that altogether and still maintain a snug fit.
And, hey, it's free, right? So even if you don't love it, you're only out the price of a postage stamp.
Quick note: This is the third or fourth freebie shared by my brother-in-law Charles, himself an eagle-eyed bargain finder from way back. If I had a Cheapskate merit badge to bestow, he'd get one! Great find, bro.
Bonus deal #1: You know how I love Wi-Fi printers, right? Buy.com has the Lexmark Impact S305 for just $62.99 shipped. It's a 3-in-1 multifunction (print/scan/copy) with 802.11b/g connectivity. CNET rated it four stars!
Bonus deal #2: I also love big TVs. Dell has a 120Hz, 47-inch Vizio VT470M LCD for $779 shipped, including a Vizio wall mount! That's a pretty smokin' deal.
