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.

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:
- 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.
- 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.
