The Logitech G240 mouse pad is now $9.99 at Staples and it regularly retails for $19.99.
It doesn't come with any free shipping offers but you can check the store inventory and reserve it to pick up in store instead. It has free shipping when you spend $45 and so if you have regular purchases to make from Staples you can add this to your purchase.
If you want to buy a stocking filler for the gamer in your life this would make a good start. It would also make a good gift for anyone who has to travel for work and needs to make an awkward space into a work surface that the mouse will move on while on the go.
The mouse pad comes with a 3-year warranty, which suggests that it will last, since the manufacturers are willing to back a product that will get heavy wear and tear. It will work particularly well with other Logitech products as it is matched to Logitech G sensors, but it will work with any mouse.
Reviewers of this product had this to say:
Overall a very thin, smooth mouse pad which is pretty big too, so you get good $/square feet ratio. However, the mouse pad is a dust magnet so watch out if you're using it with a mouse that tends to have problems when dust accumulates in its sensor or mouse feet. This mouse pad's MSRP is expensive. Would only recommend when it goes on sale.
The normal price of this mouse pad is more than I would pay, but I agree with the reviewer the sale makes it something I would definitely be interested in. It can make your experience with an everyday item like your mouse a little less frustrating.
