SANtas IT elf limited time discount

December 1, 2010 – 11:53 am

I received a note from Robin, one of SANtas IT elfs over at Shop Timberland.

Shop Timberland Sale

Robin said to pass along this information about the Timberland Friends and Family Event, Share the savings that starts Thursday December 2nd through Monday December 6th.

Like many of you, I get tons of promotion material or spam. This however came from someone I have meet face to face who also happens to be one of SANtas IT elfs, not to mention that Im also an existing customer of theirs (that was a disclosure BTW…).

With the current holiday shopping season coupled with a common IT theme of stretching budgets, doing more with what you have or less as well as reducing costs, those also seemed like good reasons for sharing this info.

Best that I can tell, you will not be finding any of Timberlands servers, storage, networking hardware or software involved in the sale other than supporting the transactions, however it is a good opportunity for other items at their online or traditional stores.

Here is how it works, quite simple actually.

Go to for example the online store, select the items you are looking for, add them to your virtual shopping cart, then when you go to check out, you will see a box

where you will enter
jsaEJ8M3pjK to receive up to 40 percent off on the online or 30 percent at stores.

Want to see the additional details of what was sent to me, read below (note I redacted Robins full name and contact so that he does not get spammed and placed his note in italics).



Here is the official email with the promotional code. 

If you are hesitating to pass it on, not wanting to take advantage, banish the thought!  Once again there is a competition going on here to see whose code is used the most, so if you know other people who may be interested in this discount, by all means share!

Happy Holidays to all –

Robin (One of SANtas IT elfs at Timberland)
