Buy Big Bundle, Help Cure Cancer!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 28 comments

It's the giving that gives back to you.

Giving to charity is one of the best things you can do. Even if you don't have time to personally get involved, just a small donation can help pave the way for a lot of good to be done.

We urge each one of you to consider a charity and give to it in any way possible. Today we're going to highlight a cause that will give back to you in a big way immediately.

TrialPay has teamed up with some of the biggest brands to create a package called the Big Bundle that is $29.99. Inside the Big Bundle is $799 worth of products and coupons in which many of you may find value. Even if you don't use up each individual offer in the Big Bundle, you're still going to get more than your donation's worth in the form of a:

- GoDaddy domain,
- PopCap Bejeweled 2,
- TrendMicro AntiVirus,
- Skype credits,
- DropBox Pro,
- FoxIt PDF Creator, and many more.

The very most important thing here is that 100 percent of all net proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

Check out the Big Bundle here.

Oh, and for being a Tom's Hardware reader, we have a special coupon code for you that'll take 30 percent off the package price. Just enter in TOMSHARDWARE in the gift voucher field to bring the Big Bundle down to $20.99. This does, however, also reduce your contribution to the ACA by $9, so use it only if necessary. Nevertheless, any contribution is better than none at all.

Note: the coupon code is good for just 2000 uses, so be sure to act on it if you're planning to.

Update: just under a week left to get your Big Bundle!

    Better yet, donate directly to these people:

    Big Pharma only likes cures that can be patented.

    Uhh, if 100% of each sale goes to charity, isn't a 30% discount on this actually taking 30% of the money the ACS could have made?

    That is what I was wondering. Does Tom's pickup the extra or is it just incentive for cheapo THer's.

    The coupon acts as a referral code and TH gets paid for referrals.

    Meanwhile don't tell people that cancer like aids and diabetes are lifestyle diseases and can be cured,after all if they were viruses then like the common cold or the flu they would be all over the map..:)

    The American Cancer Society is a scam and can bite me.

    Quote from Wiki,
    "a report analyzing the chapter's own financial statements and demonstrating that it uses about 95% of its donations for paying salaries and other overhead costs, resulting in a 22 to 1 ratio of overhead to actual money spent on the cause"

    95% to pay for saleries, that is a scam.

    Without even seeing any actual nubmers it says right in the article "any NET proceeds will go..." Who knows how much is needed to cover costs.

    We encourage you NOT to use the coupon because it means less money for the ACS if you do. The idea is to give people a good deal because it's not like everyone decides to donate to cancer research every day. We have to say "net" proceeds because Visa/MasterCard take about 2% (of everything).

    Interesting.

    There's a couple things there I could actually use. That's the main deciding factor, because I have enough people to give money too...

    Do multiple voucher codes work? (One from Toms and one from somewere else?)

    As far as I know, we're not getting paid for any referrals at all. This was just something we wanted to support because we thought it was a Good Thing.

    I'm pretty sure what Tom's means is that they will split the donation with you if you purchase a bundle.

    Hmmm, do I really want to spend $21 on a bunch of products I don't want, a bunch of coupons I'll never use, as well as give away my personal information that will likely be shared with participating advertisers and be used to harass me for more donations, all to give a paltry sum to a corrupt charity? I don't think so ¬_¬

    I do believe that should read:

    areyoukiddingI don't care about sick cancer patients. I'm to cheap to donate.


    Wow really? since 100% of the net profits are donated, this is a better deal for the research facilities than the ones you buy at walmart. Hell, if you use only a handful of the coupons you break even.

    Great idea for a charity donation; I'd go for it, but I submit donations locally with cash.
