WaPo Goes Loco Part 1 last October, "the WaPo Garden Book is available to PostPoints members for just 500 points. Other PostPoints awards are 2,000 points for a $5 gift card. So by my calculations 25% of $5 is $1.50. Now THAT is a sale considering the cover price is $18.95 for this 1998 publication. I got mine at a used book store for maybe $2.50, but I still see it for sale at local book stores full price. This makes me wonder if the Post is just clearing out their inventory or whether there is a new edition in the works making the old version soon obsolete."
Well, the PostPoints highlights in today's paper sat that the WaPo Garden Book will be given out for FREE until they are gone! You have to come in person to the Washington Post HQ building in downtown DC TODAY (Friday morning, 4/16) to claim yours.
Damn! If I wasn't just leaving for the GWA regional meeting at Mt Cuba in Delaware for an all day meeting, I'd be there in line myself to scoop up some copies and use them for raffle prizes and such.
