Back To School With DAKINE

School shop­ping is yet fur­ther proof that par­ents are required to have the patience of a saint. If you’ve ever had to do it, you know what I’m talk­ing about. Stores, anx­ious to make a sale, gath­er all of the required sup­plies in one area filled with bar­gain bins. Frus­trat­ed par­ents elbow past one anoth­er, try­ing to find every­thing on their mas­sive school-pro­vid­ed lists. Kids run through the aisles insist­ing they need every­thing they see.

“No, Bil­ly. You’re going to the sec­ond grade. I’m sure you don’t NEED a $120 sci­en­tif­ic cal­cu­la­tor, but, nice try.”

I once saw a fight break out over the last pair of Fiskar scis­sors. True story.

We’re hop­ing to alle­vi­ate some of this stress by offer­ing our mem­bers a sweet back-to-school sale on DAKINE back­packs. We’re talk­ing qual­i­ty packs at up to 60% off. You can’t beat that with a stick or a Fiskar scissor.

The sale begins today at 9am PST and ends on Thurs­day (8/19) at 9am PST. As usu­al, these sales are for mem­bers only. You won’t have access to the prod­ucts until you become a mem­ber, but since we’re all about mak­ing things easy for you, here are two ways to obtain a mem­ber­ship immediately:

  1. Twit­ter: Send us a tweet. Noth­ing too cre­ative required.. unless, you know, you want to write us a 140-char­ac­ter poem. We won’t say no to that. Just ask for an invite and we’ll tweet you one back. You don’t even have to say please.
  2. Face­book: Check out our Face­book page. “Like” us while you’re at it. You know you like us. Then check out the “info” tab. There’s an invite code there, just chill­ing, wait­ing to be used.
