ATLANTA----On the business beat our focus is on another airfare sale and special offers for students buying a PC and headed back to school.
Another airfare sale this morning from discounter AirTran, but here's the kicker--it ends tonight (Wednesday, July 13) at Midnight.
You have until November 9 to use the 10 day advance purchase tickets with lowest fares available on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Keep in mind as you book your seats that the tickets are non-refundable and you cannot use them on Friday or Sunday.
And it's a full court press this morning to boost sales of personal computers to college students.
With the new tables taking a huge bite out of PC sales, the tech companies are now offering special deals.
From Apple, says USA TODAY, buy a Mac Book or Mac Desktop and you get a $100 gift card for the App store.
From HP you can get a free Microsoft Xbox 360 or a free printer and flash drive depending on what model PC you purchase.
And from Dell--also a free Xbox but you have to spend certain amount to qualify.
If you are heading back to school, check out all the deals--there are quite a few of them--before you buy anything.
