I have referred to this bento set alot lately. I purchased it in August 2008 after months of searching for one. When I first featured it in ’08, readers asked how the heck I’d found one. Everyone was searching for this thing. I love this set. I alternately used it all the time, then stored it in fear I’d overuse it and damage it. And that’s why I’ve been talking so much about the fact that Lock & Lock has a similar set on sale today. This is a workhorse of a bento set.
From Lock & Lock’s online newsletter, they show the red version of this set on sale today for $7.99. I just purchased the blue version of this set about a month ago at regular price ($14+). I also think that the coupon code that Lock ‘n Lock is currently offering for 45% off may work on top of this offer. The code is QLTY4LESS. I experimented with this the other day by placing a Happy Hour item in my cart and getting through the checkout process without actually purchasing the item. It did seem to work, but it took a minute to figure out how. I’m here to help you get ready for the sale.
Once you’ve added an item to our cart and you’re on this billing and shipping page, don’t miss that Promo Code spot (I almost did). This is where you type QLTY4LESS. It should take 45% of the items in your cart (coupon code good until June 5). If this is the case, the lunch set should reduce to around $4.50. I can’t even freakin’ believe how cheap that is. Anyhow, shipping will cost you around $3.99 according to their prices, mean you could potentially get this set for $8.49 shipped. <gapes> Yeah, that’s awesome.
If you try this and it works, please come back and tell us. The sale typically starts at 4:00 p.m. CST and lasts until 6:00 p.m. Good luck!
P.S. If use the affiliate link in the sidebar to access Lock & Lock for this deal, allow me to say “THANK YOU!”
P.P.S. For those of you with bigger appetites or need to pack for a whole day, the $36 cooler bag set will be on sale for $15.99 tomorrow (Friday, June 1) at 11:00 a.m. If you use the coupon code and it works on this sale, the set would be around $8.80 before shipping and handling. This set contains the box HPL816, which is the same box I’m currently showing on the website this week. It’s actually as the same set of boxes (review on those coming tomorrow) with a different bag and a drink bottle included. I paid about $22.99 for my set without a water bottle. So, another good deal tomorrow.
Be the bento everyone!
