Deal of the Week | May 22nd, 2015: 2-in-1 LED Flashlight / Laser Pointer for $2.99 (reg. $10.99)

2-in-1 LED Flashlight/Laser Pointer for $2.99 (reg. $10.99)This is a whole lot of illumination for less than three bucks.

You get an incredibly useful flexible-neck LED flashlight, perfect for peering into dark nooks and crannies and shedding light in tight spots. It even has a magnetic base, for hands-free operation. And you also get a laser pointer, perfect for beaming a bright red pinpoint for presentations, lectures, and demonstrations. (And if you have a dog or cat, brace yourself for hilarity: The laser pointer makes them mental.)

It’s small enough (just 2.65 by .75 inches) to fit in pocket, purse, glove box, tackle box, gun cabinet, backpack, bicycle bag, junk drawer – just about anywhere. And at this price, you can afford to keep one in all of those places. It comes with three LR44 batteries already installed – and even includes an extra three for good measure! Normally, these retail for $10.99, but as this week’s DOTW, they’re a steal at just $2.99.

Deal of the Week | May 15th, 2015: Selfie Tripod with Bluetooth Remote for $13.99 (reg. $19.99)

Selfie tripod with Bluetooth remote for smartphones - just $13.99 at Connecting PointIt’s like Theodore Roosevelt was fond of saying: “Speak softly, and carry no selfie stick.”

Because those things are heinous, bro – and ol’ Teddy knew that.

Instead, pick up this week’s DOTW. You get a much better system for taking self portraits with your smartphone, and you’ll look a darn sight cooler doing it, too.

You get a sturdy mini-tripod, with a mount capable of working with all but the fattest of smartphones. And you get a key-fob Bluetooth remote, which grants you the ability to snap the smartphone’s camera from up to 30 feet away. These two are normally bundled together for $20, but for this week’s Deal of the Week, we’re letting them go for a measly $13.99. But hurry – the offer is limited to stock on hand.

Connecting Point earns Apple Premium Service Provider designation for 2015

Apple Premium Service Provider 2015Connecting Point Computer Centers, the area’s only locally-owned, independent Apple retailer and services provider, is pleased to announce Apple has awarded us its Premium Service Provider designation. This accolade is given to an elite tier of Apple Authorized Service Providers in recognition of their unparalleled commitment to technical excellence and customer service. According to Apple, “Premium Service Providers consistently deliver exceptional repair support and customer experience that meet Apple’s exacting standard for high-quality repair and prompt service.”

Connecting Point traces its roots back to the pre-personal computer era. Founded in 1975 by Bob Howell and current owner and CEO Rick Mandell, Connecting Point began as a small stereo store. Later, the business expanded to embrace electronic parts, video gear, and even CB radios. But a turning point occurred in 1977, when Connecting Point – then part of the Minneapolis-based franchise TEAM Electronics – became one of the earliest retailers for the new, groundbreaking Apple II personal computer.

Today, Connecting Point is proud to sell, service, and provide unparalleled support for every product in the Apple line – including Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod. As one of just over a hundred Premium Service Providers in all of North America – that’s only 18% of the total number of Apple Service Providers – you can rest assured your Apple service will be performed by one of the oldest, most experienced, and accredited Apple service centers in the world.
