NEW YORK (MainStreet) – Borders bookstore has been a frequent presence in my inbox since I signed up for a Borders Rewards card a couple of years ago, sending me coupons on what seems like a weekly basis. Today’s coupon may be the best I’ve seen, though: 50% off any one item, in-store or online. You’ll need to be a Rewards member to get the discount, though you can sign up for a free membership online or in the store. If you’re going to the store itself you can use this printable coupon, and if you’re buying online you need the coupon code BYE7070P. The coupon is only good through Monday at 11:59 p.m. PDT, and it can’t be used at a clearance sale if your local Borders is closing. There are also some exclusions, like toys, games, magazines and comics.

Daily deal site has a pretty nifty gizmo on sale today. For $6.97 you get an LED desk lamp that also includes a tiny fan to keep you cool. It’s powered by plugging into your computer’s USB port. Shipping adds $3, and this deal expires at 6 a.m. EDT tomorrow morning.

Finally, Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day is a great one for film buffs: the entire Man With No Name trilogy is $23.99 on Blu-Ray. The Clint Eastwood spaghetti western series, which includes The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, For a Few Dollars More and A Fistful of Dollars, has an MSRP of $69.99 and normally sells on Amazon it for $42.99. The only downside of this one-day deal is that it’s just a dollar short of Amazon’s $25 free shipping cutoff, so you have to add something else to your cart if you want it to ship free. Thankfully, there are sites like FillerItem Finder that will show you $1 items on the site to help you cross that threshold.
