The Cash'n'Carrion stash is nowhere near as good as it used to be when it started out.
If you fancy enjoying 20 per cent off everything down at El Reg's merchandising tentacle, Cash'n'Carrion, you'd better get in there sharpish, because our January sale ends on Saturday. To claim the bumper discount, just enter "JAN20" in the appropriate box during checkout – simple as that. While you're filling your retail …

The Victorinox ('Spartan') penknife is good - works out at £16 after code, about what you'd pay in a camping or hardware shop. It is all you need to rewire a plug, apply filler, open wine, paint, beer and baked beans, drill holes, remove splinters from your fingers and food from your teeth.... It can also be used to sew some crude clothing a la Rambo First Blood but I haven't done that myself. Both blades are very sharp, and it's handy to have the smaller blade stay wickedly sharp for precision tasks after using the larger blade for cruder jobs. The steel is easier to resharpen than Leatherman's.

Not looked at the store in a long time..... Wow.
It's like looking at a bad CafePress store, with just the logo stamped onto generic items - Considering that the site had a complete revamp, was this quietly forgotten in the process? Is the person running it part of a government "return to work" scheme?
Mobe charger - Currently being given out by Vendors everywhere as marketing freebies (I have collected 6 from ArcServe so far, I doubt my office workers will ever run out of charge again)
Same goes for the torch / Polo's .... and the knife just looks like a bad photoshop :(
C'mon Reg, increase the standard - at the moment it just looks like you are trying to shift excess orders from your marketing dept.
