Bose via eBay offers its refurbished Bose Acoustimass 5 Series V Stereo Speaker System for $249 with free shipping. That's tied with our mention from three weeks ago and $150 below the lowest price we could find for a new one. It includes two dual-driver Direct/Reflecting speakers, an Acoustimass module, and four speaker cables. Note: A 1-year Bose warranty applies (same as a new item).
These are simple solutions for life's irritations -- from water stains and rusted pans to stuck-on chewing gum and balky zippers.
