I constantly get retailers asking me to pass along their latest deals to my readers. For the most part, I ignore them because they don’t really fit with the readership of this site. However, there are some pretty awesome 2011 Back to School Deals. While the deals listed below are not all math related, they are technology and gadget and/or education related. Since I have a large audience of high school and college students (and their parents and teachers), I though I’d pass them along.
Microsoft Store: Free Xbox 360 (UPDATE: $399 Dell)
This one is crazy. If you follow this link, Microsoft is offering a Free Xbox 360 with the purchase of any computer over $700. If you’re in the market for a new computer anyway, this is hard to pass up. Deal ends September 3.
UPDATE: As of August 30, the Microsoft store has added another deal. The Dell Inspiron N4030 laptop is going for just $399. No word on how long this deal will last, just that it’s “for a limited time.”

Ecampus.com: Free Shipping on Textbooks
Free Sprint Android Phones
Sprint isn’t messing around at back to school time. They have a number of free Android phones with a new contract. Hard to believe my underpowered HTC Hero was almost $200 just two years ago.
UPDATE: Free AT&T Phones
Not to be outdone by Sprint, AT&T is now offering free phones as well, including shipping. I took a quick look and the list does include and Android phone or two as well as the Palm Pixi.
PacSun: Discount Backpacks and More
Not every back to school deal has to be high tech, right? PacSun is offering 30% off backpacks, as well as other huge discounts across much of their apparel for back to school time, including 50% off of guys clothes.
