- Asics Gel Running Shoes $33 to $50 (expired)
Scotch Thermal Laminator for $17 today.
Free shipping with most $25+ Amazon orders.
This thing has been at the $17 price about twice a year for the last 2 years.
Be sure you want one and have a use for one, because there is not a good secondary market for these things.
It will be hard to re-sell this, because very few people out there are actively looking to buy a laminator.
A Laminator hardens paper documents with see-through plastic, useful for protecting important documents such as schedules, recipes, luggage tags, crafts, and important pages that you'd like protected.
One good example are the Google backup codes that someone can get with their Google accounts.
The backup codes are assigned to your account as a way to access your account when your password, your email addresses, and all your authentication methods fail.
A printout of your backup codes should be kept in your wallet, and could be helpful if laminated to avoid being damaged.
