Pick of the Week

It's pick of the week time: each week I pick one great buy from Target's Weekly Ad, and highlight it here on my blog. This week's pick is actually courtesy of my hubby, as I was stumped for a "pick" this week and told him to look in the ad to see if anything jumped out at him as a Father's Day gift. He immediately honed in on this Bose SoundDock portable music system ($399.99 this week at Target). Just dock your iPod (not included, of course!) and it turns your iPod into a home stereo system. It's compatible with all iPod models with a click wheel, the iPod Touch, and the iPhone, plus it charges your iPod while it's docked. And as an added bonus with your purchase, you get a free travel bag for your docking system (a $49.99 value).

Now I know this thing is a bit pricey... so I searched online at and lookey here what I found: a slightly different model of the Bose SoundDock for a lot less, on sale for $269.99 this week. This lower-priced one also comes in white, and honestly, I cannot tell the different between the two models. Perhaps the higher priced one is the newer one, and Target is trying to clear out the older ones? I'm not sure... but if you want to save some $$, and don't care about the free travel bag, it'd be worth it to buy the cheaper online models.

Bose® SoundDock® Portable Digital Music System: $399.99 this week at Target (as shown) or online at for $269.99.

The pick of the week is a great deal. The one you saw in the ad is the new SoundDock Portable with a Lithium-ion battery that allows you to take the system anywhere you want, hence the cool travel bag that Target/Bose is giving away. The one you saw online is the regular plug in model - still an awesome system.
