Office Depot is currently discounting some Logitech accessories by $20 when you use the code SELFMADETECH when you go out. This promotion includes the Logitech MX Keys and MX Keys Mini keyboards as well as the Logitech MX Vertical and Signature M650 wireless mouse.

Both models can be connected to devices either via Bluetooth or through the included 2.4GHz wireless dongle. With the code used at checkout, the full-size MX Keys model with number plate discounts to $99.99 (usually $119.99), while the MX Keys Mini with a 60 percent layout is $79.99 (usually $99.99).
