Cool things to spend money on at Newegg.

Ok, so Newegg gave me a "25 dollars of orders greater than $50 coupon" and I have nothing to use it on and I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions of what to do with it. the limit of what I want to spend (before the coupon) is probably $75 so $50 after the coupon.

I'd be happier spending the minimum of $50 ending at $25, I've been looking through newegg and can't seem to find anything that spikes my interest, so I was thinking maybe someone here has an idea.

I don't need: Monitor, Keyboard, Liquid Cooling, RAM, HDDs, Video Cards, Disc Drives, Lit Fans, or Speakers.
IE, I have all the things mentioned there and they are all basically new (its a shame this coupon came when it did, because I just bought my liquid cooling system) I would probably by the tron mouse if it was somewhere closer to $50 dollars, just because it lights up. Because my current Fatal1ty mouse is still working fine, albeit a bit old (Speaking of which, if anybody knows a good lit mouse in the price range, that would be awesome).
I was looking at 5.25" bay fan controllers, but I think I've decided that it would be useless since I just leave my fans at full blast all the time anyways. Anything else cool (and not a cup holder or drawer) that might go into the 5.25" bay might be neat.

It's a major road block that I can't find something that I actually want to buy. I know I shouldn't waste money on it, but $25 off (that expires on the 28th of February is too good a deal for me to want to pass up.

Any suggestions on something cool to buy would be greatly appreciated!

Blu-ray drive?
Rice Cooker?
oh wait... that's what I want...
I was thinking about a Blu-Ray drive because I do have a good number of Blu-Ray movies but I also have a PS3, so I have to wonder how much I would watch the movies on the PC instead of the Big Screens.

A PC hooked up to your TV with the right software is actually the best bluray playback device you can own :)

Razer mice light up and are very good. Could get a nice big fast usb flash disk. USB Fridge.

Hey guys thanks for the advice, I don't like moving my Desktop to the 61 inch or the 42 inch so the Bluray would have been used just on the 22inch LED I have for the monitor which would be good (but I have a PS3 which is where we watch most of the movies) so I figured I'd wait to get one for the PC until the PS3 dies again. I decided to get Gran Turismo 5 since I came away paying only 28 bucks for it, it was a game I had wanted but didn't want to pay 50+ bucks for it in case it stinks.

There were some great suggestions here though, when my Fatl1ty dies I'm probably gonna get a Razer (maybe the tron mouse will come down in price by then :D)

you could just hit space in the search bar and then pick your price range. Then just spend awhile looking at all the stuff thats in your price range.

I don't remember what I actually bought lol, something :D
I didn't realize that about the space bar. I'm always saying why don't sites like Amazon.com and Newegg have a view all products button :D
