FoundersCard

There are plenty of “exclusive” sites out there that offer members-only prices on lots of things we want to buy. Most of them just require signing up with an e-mail address to get access to their deals, but not FoundersCard. Getting a FoundersCard requires approval from their team, but the wait and the process is more than worth it if you get in. The membership fee more than pays for itself when you consider the benefits such as elite status, VIP treatment, and preferred pricing from leading airlines, hotels, fashion & lifestyle brands, and business services, including Virgin Atlantic, John Varvatos, JetBlue, The Standard Hotels, Lufthansa, rag & bone, AT&T Wireless, StubHub, and Hilton HHonors. If you consider yourself an entrepreneur or innovator on any level, you need to get in on the exclusive FoundersCard action.

For a limited time, Cool Material readers can apply for FoundersCard membership at 35% off the standard rate ($395 vs. $595). Click Here to access this exclusive opportunity.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
