If your ear has fallen within the radius of a supermarket or shopping mall’s sound system anytime since October then you’ll know that the festive feel-good season of Christmas is all but upon us.
And that means it’s time to xmas shop.
But it’s not just the big bricks and mortar and e-tailers who are pimping discounts for the festive season: Canonical are in on the action too.
So if you’re stuck for a gift to get an Ubuntu-user in your member, or if someone’s stuck on what to get you, cast an eye over the following deals on offer…
Boombero Speaker Deal
Canonical’s Ubuntu-branded wireless speaker, the ‘Boombero’, doesn’t come cheap at £45/$70. So to sweeten the deal for the festive period Canonical are offering a free Ubuntu t-shirt, beanie, or cap with every purchase – giving you a maximum saving of £10.23.
Not too shabby, right?
Ubuntu Office Essentials Bundle
If caps and smartphone speakers aren’t your thing perhaps a new set of ‘office essentials’ are?
The bundle comprises:
- Ubuntu Laptop Sleeve
- Ubuntu Mouse
- Ubuntu Mouse-mat
The Ubuntu-branded laptop sleeve is available in four sizes: 10″, 13″, 15″ and 17″.
Portable USB mice truly are essentials, especially if you’re on a portable with finicky touchpad. The square, flat shape of this one might not be to everyone’s tastes, mind.
Finally, buying this bundle saves you 15% off of total it would cost you to buy these items individually.
Ubuntu Winter Bundle
The last of the three bundles on offer is designed to keep you warm and cosy during the cold winter months. Oh, and save you money.
You get an Ubuntu fleece in one of 6 sizes (small through xxx-large); a modest looking beanie hat, and the definitive Ubuntu mug.
Beware the Postage
The ‘drawback’ of ordering anything from the Canonical Store is the sting of postage. This can, at times, be eye-wateringly prohibitive, so be sure to factor it in to your total before demanding a bundle from Santa.
