Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset Was $9.89 Now Only $6.99 (US) & Free Canadian Shipping @ Focal Price

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset Was $9.89 Now Only $6.99 (US) & Free Canadian Shipping @ Focal Price

The black Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset was one of the items that caught my eye in the email newsletter from Focal Price, this morning. It’s only a 29% discount on this item, but it’s a great price and I thought it was worth a mention. Originally priced at $9.89, it’s now only $6.99 with free worldwide shipping!

I’ve mentioned Focalprice.com here on the blog a few times, but in case you don’t know, they charge in US dollars and ship from the US. But as it is free worldwide shipping anyway, you won’t have to pay any more than you see on the site. Also, as this item is under our $20 customs limit here in Canada, you wouldn’t have to worry about any extra fees either. With the exchange rate, you’re probably paying around CA$8.90 in the end.

Focal Price regularly releases a lot of coupon codes, but I’ve tested all the currently active ones on this item, and they do not apply to give an extra discount. Certain very low-priced items on their site don’t qualify for further discounts, and this is one such item.

Here’s a quick note about the Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset itself:

With this mini stereo Bluetooth headset, you can conveniently and safely answer calls while driving. It is compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled devices. The compact size makes it convenient to use.

This looks like the kind of item which would be ideal for driving, of course. As for the reviews of this item on Focal Price, there are 15 five star reviews, with an average rating of about 4.8 out of 5. That’s very high, so sounds like this is a great little item. Here are a few reviews for you to check out:

Mini Stereo Bluetooth Headset Was $9.89 Now Only $6.99 (US) & Free Canadian Shipping @ Focal Price

To price compare with similar items here in Canada, the likes of this similar DBPOWER one from Amazon is $22, but most others that I can see are the larger style. So, for the price, I think this is a great little gadget and worth the money from Focal Price.

75% to 80% Off Select Dresses @ Zara Canada (Prices From $13!) & FS on $50+

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 9:00 AM

75% to 80% Off Select Dresses @ Zara Canada (Prices From $13!) & FS on $50+

I caught a glimpse of the dresses @ Zara Canada and knew I had to post. Right now, select dresses are on sale for up to 75 to 80% off with prices ranging from $13 to $23. Shipping is free for orders bigger than $50 or a flat rate of $4.95 for all orders under $50.

Zara has a few great choices for dresses right now on deep discount. A few of them would make a beautiful splash for Valentine’s Day. Sizing is a little spotty but it is worth digging a bit for some of these beautiful dresses.

I was peeking around some of the dresses at Zara and I found this beautiful Black Draped Back Dress. This dress was $60 but is now on sale for only $16. I absolutely love the draping on the back of the dress. I would not normally pick a dress with such a low back as I can only tolerate the alternatives to wearing a bra for so long. This dress however, is simply stunning and I would make an exception. If you have any big events coming up or simply want something romantic and sexy for Valentine’s Day, this could be your dress. The sizing is a bit spotty and it is only available in a small or medium. Ladies if you have it, you should flaunt it. I would probably pick a different pair of shoes than the black low cut Doc Martin style shoes with the silver toe the model is wearing.

Check out this flirty Satin Dress. This dress was $59.90 but is now only $15.99 and comes in a beautiful bright magenta colour. This time of year, I would probably wear this dress at home for my sweetie. I do not know how I could wear this beautiful dress out of the house in Canadian Winter without freezing. Once summer hit, this dress would make its way to the front of my closet. I love the crisscrossing straps in the back. I hope my strapless bra would cover well under this one.  I could see this dress working well if you have a Spring Break vacation in the works. This dress is currently available in sizes medium and large.

Take a second look at this Yellow Jumpsuit With Straps which was $39.90 Now $12.99. While a jumpsuit usually is not my thing, I bet I could pull this one off since it looks and swings like a shorter maxi dress. The yellow is a soft pastel that is perfect for summer or that Spring Break trip to Cuba you are now have planning in your head. This dress only comes in size small. I would throw this on over a bathing suit for walking along the beach. You could also wear it for dinner out later that evening with the right accessories and shoes.

As I mentioned up top, shipping is pretty reasonable. There are other items available in the sale section for Ladies, Men and Kids sections. It may not be too hard to reach the $50 minimum to qualify for free shipping. If you just want just that perfect black draped back dress, shipping is a flat rate of $4.95 for all orders under $50. You could also choose to pick up your items in store for free.

I do not personally own any of Zara’s clothes.  Please tell me if you order that black dress, I really love it but it is not available in my size. Bargainmoosers, are you a fan of Zara?

Photobook Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 60% Off All Photobooks

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Photobook Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 60% Off All Photobooks

With Valentine’s Day on the way, you might be considering making a photobook for the one you love. You might also finally have your 2014 photos in order and want to do a year in review. Either way, you’ll want to check out this deal from Photobook Canada, because by using our exclusive coupon code, you’ll get a whopping 60% off all photobooks. The coupon doesn’t include any extra pages or upgrades you might want though.

Click here to shop @ Photobookcanada.com now

  • Coupon code: PBMOOSESPL1
  • Discount: 60% off
  • Expiry: 31st March 2015

You still have five days to order your photobooks and get them before Valentine’s Day. I think I’m going to make my boys a photo book of our recent vacation in Cuba as a Valentine’s surprise.

I like that there are all sorts of different styles I can choose from including a travel photobook. The beach life is my favourite and while I usually go for an 8×8 style book, I want to do something larger this time. The 11×8.5 looks good to me. The price is regularly $69.99, but the coupon brought the book down to $28, which is fantastic! This is for 40 pages, and I can add more pages if I’d like at a cost.

The largest book that Photobook Canada carries is the XL landscape, which is 17.5×12″. This is great as a wedding photobook, as you’ll want something large for guests to look at or as a coffee table book after the wedding. Regularly $229.99, this book will come down to $91.99, which is a significant savings.

Photobook Canada offers free shipping on orders over $75. Otherwise, I noticed my smaller photobook for $28 had a $13 shipping fee on top. What I think I will do is make a photobook for my trip, one for the last year in review and one for my husband for our 10th wedding anniversary that just passed. Hopefully my family doesn’t read this, as they will all be gifts!

Before you make your photobook, be sure to check the Bargainmoose forum for the latest Photobook Canada exclusive coupons.

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 8:00 PM

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

Every year my good girlfriends and I make Do It Yourself Christmas gifts for each other.  It sure beats spending $20 each on a present.  You can’t get very much with $20 these days except for a gift card.  Each year we are surprised at the creativity and ingenuity at the gifts we create for each other.

These Do It Yourself gifts are great for all year round, not just Christmas, so I thought it would be nice to share more DIY gifts that are surprisingly easy.

Hidden Book to Store your Valuables

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

These are very expensive when you buy them at craft stores.  They usually sell for $20 to $25.  I bought one online a few years ago for the same price and it was a bit less “discrete” than this Do It Yourself one.  It was obviously not a “real” book because it did not have a title on the spine of the book.

This was made by going to Value Village and Salvation Army to buy some used books.  Look for pretty colours or catchy titles  and also look depending on the size of the book- the wider the spine, the more things you can put in the book (but also more work to cut the pages too!)

You will need:

  • A book
  • X-acto knife
  • Modge Podge glue
  • Lots of time (about 1 hour per book)

Cut the pages of the book with the X-acto knife (this requires quite a bit of effort because you can’t just cut the entire book in one go, it takes a few pages at a time).

Then seal it with Modge Podge glue and let it dry.

Cost:

Depending on whether you already have Modge Podge and an X-acto knife handy, it may only cost you $1-3 to make this great gift!

All Natural All Purpose Citrus Cleaner 

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

Homemade cleaner is super easy to make and is natural without added harsh ingredients and unpronounceable toxic ingredients.  Not to mention it is super economical to make and a great way to recycle your orange peels.

You will need:

  • Vinegar
  • Orange rind
  • A spray bottle
  • A small wipe (you can get these at the dollar store)

Dry your orange peels and soak them in vinegar.

The only downside is that there can be a strong vinegar odour when you use it but it disappears quickly once you clean.  You could try adding a few drops of essential oil to decrease the smell.

Cost to make:

Under $4 (even cheaper if you have vinegar and a spray bottle handy)

Picture Frame Jewelry Holder

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

This was surprisingly easy to make and it was an instant hit.  A lot of friends were saying they always wanted one but were too lazy to make one.  Although the downside is that this one is a bit more expensive than the others, especially if you don’t have the supplies handy.

You will need:

  • A picture frame (can be bought at Value Village or Salvation Army for $5 or less)
  • Spray paint (with primer preferably) $10 a can
  • Burlap ($10 for a meter at Fabric store)
  • A staple gun ($15 for a cheap one at Michael’s)

All you need to do is take out the picture and glass from the picture frame.  Sand it down if you can.  Then spray the frame with spray paint.  Staple the burlap with the staple gun.  I found some wire at a dollar store and stapled that as well, it’s handy to put bracelets or necklaces that otherwise wouldn’t be able to hang properly on the picture frame.

Cost:

It cost about under $8 for each picture frame jewelry holder to be made, which included having to buy a staple gun and spray paint.

Ring Holder

4 DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love

This ring holder involves using a mason jar and clay and some paint.  It is a variation of the clay jewelry dish holder instructions here by Hello Natural.

You will need:

  • A mason jar to shape up the clay
  • Clay
  • Paints

Cost:

The most expensive supplies are the clay and the paints, however this still cost less than $10 to make, the more you gift, the cheaper each jewelry holder will be!

Bargainmoosers, do you have any fun DIY ideas that are easy to make and a great gift to give or receive?

Fisher Price Disney’s Cheerin’ Minnie Mouse Just $25 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 4:20 PM

Fisher Price Disneys Cheerin Minnie Mouse Just $25 @ Amazon.ca

Every little girl needs one of these Fisher Price Disney’s Cheerin’ Minnie Mouse. Right now Amazon.ca has this Minnie Mouse toy on sale for 50% off. You will pay just $24.99 as opposed to the full price which was $50.39. You are just one cent shy of receiving free shipping too.

Minnie Mouse loves to cheer, and now for just $24.99 your child can cheer with her. This Fisher Price Disney’s Minnie Mouse Cheer Doll will raise her pom poms while she sings and dances to a popular song. Her pom poms even move to the beat of the tune. Minnie is about 14.5 inches tall and comes complete with her cute cheer leading outfit with her trademark polka dot pattern.

The lowest price Amazon.ca has offered on this Minnie Mouse toy was $18, but it sold out incredibly quickly. Right now you won’t find any other Canadian retailers with a lower price on this popular toy. For instance, if you shop at Sears.ca then you will pay a whopping $49.99 for this toy.

You may have grown up in a time period where Mickey and Minnie mouse were the be-all and end-all. Wouldn’t you love to see your kids in love with these characters too? Remember to switch Minnie out of demo mode when you take her out of the box so you can experience all 12 cheers instead of just the two demo cheers. There are lots of reviews on this product that warn you to be careful when pulling the demo tab. If it breaks off before you pull it out, your Minnie Mouse may need a minor operation. Here is one of the Amazon Canada customer reviews on this toy:

Oh, you just have to see this Fisher-Price Minnie Mouse! The expression on the face is just so adorable and friendly. The colors are vibrant. Just the way she is standing makes you want to give her a big hug. Our pre-schooler fell in love with the Bowtique Cheerin’ Minnie at first glance, and everyone else in the room totally agreed that this was a perfect toy for a girley-girl with several other Minnie Mouse toys and dolls. Love it!

If you can find something else small to add to your shopping cart, Amazon.ca offers free shipping on all orders that exceed $25 after discounts. You could always purchase this The First Years Disney Minnie Mouse Plate for $3.99. Amazon Canada generally ships quickly as well. Who knows how long this doll will be available at this price, snag this deal now.

Rope Hammock With Metal Frame Was $139 | Now $75 @ Walmart.ca

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 3:52 PM

Rope Hammock With Metal Frame Was $139 | Now $75 @ Walmart.ca

Breezy summer days, I know you will be coming soon. The Cot11 Hammock with 12Beam  or 12 BeamOrb stand combo was $139 but is now only $75 @ Walmart.ca. Free shipping with no minimum is available for all orders at Walmart.ca.

Summer I miss you. I have started a little bucket list of things I want to make sure I do this summer. Even if I do not complete all of the items on my list, somehow in the middle of winter that summer bucket list makes me feel better. I feel like I am Olaf the snowman dreaming about summertime.

Grab this great little hammock and stand combo now. This combo was $139 but is now only $75 @ Walmart.ca. Free shipping is included with all orders at Walmart.

The frame on this hammock is made of steel and includes three cross beams for full support. I quite prefer having a frame for my hammock. Despite having moved quite a bit, I never seem to have two trees close enough together to hang a hammock in my backyard. The stand on this hammock comes in a beige or an oil rubbed bronze finish. Personally, I will be looking at the sky mostly anyways.

The frame is supposed to go together without tools and has a weather resistant coating. You should be able to leave it outside for a good portion of the year. If it was me, I would leave it outside until I am no longer in denial that summer is over fall starts turning cold.

The rope on this hammock is 100% cotton. This hammock is intended for one adult to use at a time but I bet two kids could fit in it together if they were not huge. That might be important to you if you have more than one kid who fights over everything. Mom’s turn on the hammock kids, now pass me my glass of wine. Go play in the sandbox Eva found earlier today kiddos. Even better, if you have no kids you can grab yourself a good book and swing away all evening after a long day.

I checked around the competition and here is what I was able to find. Amazon.ca has a Guide Gear Portable Hammock for one with stand through a third party seller for $90.32. Lowes.ca has a double hammock for $149 with stand included. Costco will sell you a double hammock with stand for $134.99. At Hammock Canada the cheapest hammock you can purchase is a Castaway Single Rope Hammock for $89.00 that does not include a stand. The hammock I found available at Hammock Canada is the closest I could find that was comparable in style to the Walmart deal. Walmart’s price blows all of these prices out of the water. The cheapest frame alone costs $114 at Walmart. This combo is a steal.

There are no reviews on this hammock. You will have to trust your own instincts this time. This looks like a pretty basic model that should be sturdy enough for some lazy afternoon swinging. If you have a space big enough you could also set this up inside. Maybe that idea is just me dreaming about summer again.

Bargainmoosers, what is your favourite summertime treat you miss right now?

Swiss Chalet Canada: Order The Big Game Bundle For Only $55

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 1:42 PM

Swiss Chalet Canada: Order The Big Game Bundle For Only $55

The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and I am sure the last thing you want to do is take time away from the big game to cook a meal. Swiss Chalet is here to help. Right now Swiss Chalet Canada has their Big Game Bundle for $54.99. This offer is valid until midnight on Sunday so be sure to enjoy it now.

You can choose between take out or delivery for this Big Game Bundle, but if you’re occupied during the big football game then I am sure you will opt for delivery. It looks like spending $55 will get you a great portion of food for you and your family. This weekend you can honestly say, “the more the merrier”. Here are the items included in the Swiss Chalet Canada Big Game Bundle for just $54.99:

  • 1 whole rotisserie chicken
  • 4 sides (your choice)
  • 1 Chalet Dipping Sauze
  • 4 dinner rolls
  • 4 cans of pop (your choice)
  • 2 appetizers (your choice)
  • 1 pound of wings

I love that you can ultimately customize this offer to your family’s tastes. When it comes to the side dishes, you can select four sides. Choose from fries, side salads, rice, or mashed potatoes. I love their poutine but unfortunately you will have to pay extra if you choose poutine or sweet potato fries from Swiss Chalet.

You can also select two appetizers for your Big Game Bundle. There are so many appetizers to choose from. I personally love their Chicken Spring Rolls – I order them every time I go to Swiss Chalet. Some of the other options include soup, salad, garlic bread, perogies and more. Unfortunately alcohol is not included, so tell your friends to bring their own beer.

Normally I would have ordered the Family Pak from Swiss Chalet. It comes with a rotisserie chicken, 4 rolls and 4 single sides as well as chalet sauce. This Swiss Chalet menu item would cost you $25 but is lacking quite a few of the items that the Big Game Bundle contains. Either way, I personally think Swiss Chalet is quite delicious.

There are some fine print details to this offer. Try to keep in mind that additional delivery fees may be applied. You can choose from any appetizer that does not exceed $6.99. You also can’t use any other promotion or coupon with this offer.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 3-in-1 6 Quart Multi Cooker Was $190 | Now $120

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 10:43 AM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 3 in 1 6 Quart Multi Cooker Was $190 | Now $120

Through the cold dredges of winter, slow cookers can save the day. There is just something about smelling your dinner cooking all day to give you a feel-good lift when the weather is bringing you down. Shop.ca has a great deal on the Cuisinart 3-in-1 6 quart slow cooker, with a regular price of $189.99. It is on sale for $139.99, but you can also add the coupons from their Facebook page under the more tab, where you like them and get a $20 off $50 coupon to get a final total of $119.99. If you’ve used up all of those coupons, you can use our exclusive coupon for $10, which is not as good of a deal, but still pretty rockin’.

While you’ve probably seen slow cookers on for as low as $30, you might be wondering why you’d want to pay over $100. This model has features that those $30 cookers just don’t have. They call it a multi-cooker because it is multi-functional. It is also quite large at six quarts.

Instead of browning your meat on the stovetop before putting it in the slow cooker, you can brown it right in the cooker with temperatures up to 400 degrees. If you want to steam your veggies or meat first, you can also do that in this cooker. This gets rid of the need for another appliance. You also don’t have to do one thing, come back and change it to the other, you can use the preset buttons and it will do everything on its own.

The LCD display is also a nice touch, with easy-to-read time and temperature settings, which might make this a nice gift for an older member of your family who might have trouble seeing manual display switches.

There is also a keep warm feature, which means once your meal is cooked, but you aren’t ready to eat it, you can keep it warm without it continuing to cook. This is great for an all-day party (like the Super Bowl), where your guests might be coming back for more all day.

As for price comparisons, Amazon sells this exact unit for $149.95. Bed Bath and Beyond sells it for $159.99. I think this is the best price you’re going to get for this type of slow cooker and you’ll also score free shipping from Shop.ca.

Moosers, care to share some slow cooker recipes with me?

Lululemon Canada: Cabin Yogi Wrap Was $108 | Now $80

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 10:02 AM

Lululemon Canada: Cabin Yogi Wrap Was $108 | Now $80

Lululemon has got this fantastic little wrap on sale for $79.99, with a regular price of $108. That’s almost $30 off. They also always have free shipping.

This wrap is quite an interesting piece. It is sort of a hoodie and a wrap all in one. It is also reversible. What else can it do?

It is made from Boolux fabric, which is a rayon/bamboo blend with Tencel and cashmere, so you know it will be very soft. It has slouchy pockets, which is great, as many wraps or cardigans lack that important feature. It even has thumbholes so you can keep it on how you like it.

I think this is the perfect wrap to wear to and from yoga. I often feel cool after my yoga class and I’d love to wrap this around me and then lay in shavasasna.

The reviews are mixed on this one, with some saying it is awkward to wear. I think it might just take some getting used to. But the good points are that it is durable, very soft and very flattering. Also, no matter what colour the reviewer got, they all sing the praises of that colour.

I’m home on mat leave. It’s a great sweater to wear with a wee one as its soft, warm, snugly and light colour hides any spits.

The inkwell colour is a very flattering colour and probably what I’d choose. Every size is available except 6 and 12. The medium gray/slate colour is the most coziest of colours with only size 8 and 10 in stock. The dark wren has every size available and I think this is the dressiest of the bunch, with the ability to wear this over anything. The heathered white/neutral blush is the most unique of the bunch, available in all sizes except 6. The last colour is black, which has all sizes except 12 available.

Amazon Canada: Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox Was $112 | Now $59 (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox Was $112 | Now $59 (EXPIRED)

Spring has sprung! Ok, it hasn’t, but in a few days the local groundhog will tell us whether we’ll be suffering through six more weeks of winter or not. Be prepared ahead of that pesky groundhog and get your yard ready for spring. Amazon has the Step2 Naturally Playful sandbox on sale for $59.12, from a regular price of $111.99.

If you have little kids, a sandbox in their backyard is a dream. I know, because I’ve had a few. When my older kids were toddlers, we had something just like this, which was perfect for them to play in for hours. I could put the lid on at the end of the play session, to ensure local cats weren’t making it a litter box and to keep out water. I eventually moved to a house that had a built-in sandbox and sold the old sandbox for a good price at a garage sale. These things keep their value.

This one from Step2 holds up to 200lbs of sand and has a natural look that won’t clutter up your landscaped yard. It even has little molded seats for the kids who don’t like to get right in there and get dirty. My kids liked getting dirty, so they sat right in the sandbox.

It has great reviews on Amazon, all the moms and kids love it:

Thoroughly researched sandboxes for my 2-year old and this one came out on top, not disappointed. Large enough for him to play in, small enough to fit on our deck… The lid is designed to shed water (other sandboxes with flat lids will collect/pool water), we’ve had a few summer storms and no water has gotten in and soaked the sand.

I of course price compared on other sites and Amazon’s price came out on top. Walmart has a similar, although not as nice looking, sand box on for $69.93, which is the second lowest price I found it for. Amazon’s price is $10 cheaper. Sears has the same one as Amazon selling for $99.99.

Amazon will also ship this sandbox to you for free as well, so that’s a nice bonus to get you ready for the warmer weather ahead. If sand isn’t your thing, I’ve also seen it where parents have filled it up with other sensory items – rice for example – and kept it in their basement playroom.

Free ½ Pound Bag Of Now Fresh Dog or Go! Cat Food (Printable Coupon)

Free ½ Pound Bag Of Now Fresh Dog or Go! Cat Food (Printable Coupon)

Pet Curean is offering a free half pound trial bag of Now Fresh Dog food or Go! Cat food. Request your free printable coupon then take it to your local pet shop to redeem

The past three days my poor kitty has sat next to me nuzzling my leg. He wants my attention of course. He also would like me to fill up his automatic food bowl that has gone low. For the past three days I have shaken that food bowl so the end of the cat food makes it out. Do not tell my cat, but we are out of cat food. The world is ending in his mind. I am sure I will pay for it with lots of pouncing to my toes at 2am in the morning.

Right now, you can get a free half-pound bag of cat or dog food. Simply request a coupon and they will e-mail it to you to print out. You will need Adobe Acrobat to view the coupon. My coupon says it expires May 2015, which is plenty of time to get to the store for my free bag. The coupon e-mailed within minutes so check back.

This pet food is made in Canada, which I prefer. I also like that there is not a lot of filler in this food. My cat, like all cats and dogs, is a carnivore which means he should not be eating heavily modified soy, corn and other fillers. You can read about the ingredients in their cat and dog foods here. My vet once gave me the tip when starting to look for a new food make sure it is all one colour as the multi-colour foods almost always have more extra junk in them.

On top of that, Pet Curean added on a $5 off an 8lb bag of cat or dog food coupon. If both you and your pet like the food, you can save more right away on your second bag. That was so nice of them to fill up that ugly blank paper spot with another coupon. It is not necessary for any of us to waste paper or money.

If you are not sure where to redeem this coupon, check out the store locator. I was curious and popped Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg into the locater. Over a dozen store locations popped up that sell this brand of food. Check it out closer for the store near you.

I am always a little hesitant to try a new cat food with my pet. Part of it is habit. It is easier to keep buying the same thing repeatedly. Part of my reluctance is we had him on a different brand when he was one and he had the worst gas ever. Nothing good comes from a cat butt in your face to begin with, but add a cat with bad gas and it is torture. This seems like pretty high quality food and I can not say no to free, especially when the food bag for the cat is already empty.

Totally Free Shipping @ Forever21Canada & Items From Only $2.90 * Glitch?? *

Totally Free Shipping @ Forever21Canada & Items From Only $2.90 * Glitch?? *

Moosers who like Forever21 will be interested to hear about a free shipping promotion which is happening just now. Buy any of the items in their winter essentials range and you will get totally free Canadian shipping with no minimum order value required – on everything else you buy on site! However, I think I’ve spotted a little glitch – put ANYTHING in your cart just now, doesn’t have to be one of the winter essentials, and you’ll get free shipping!

Shipping usually costs $8.95 on most orders, or it would be free on a $60 spend, so this is a very handy saving. Here’s a screenshot of my shopping cart with a low-priced cami:

While you are over on Forever21, check out their weekly specials. There are flash deals with 21% off, with new deals added each week. Also check out the 500 favourites under $5 too. All those would also get free shipping if you popped them in your cart as well!

Basics from $2.90 here - there are items in there from $1.80 but those appear to be out of stock. There are camis from only $2.90, as I mentioned in my headline.

There are a few different categories in which you can choose to shop if you do wish to browse the winter essentials from $12.80:

Above, I mentioned that you can pick up items from only $12.80. That refers to ladies’ scarves in the winter essentials accessories section, such as the fringed colorblock scarf, the Tartan Plaid Frayed Scarf or the Oversized Two-Tone Scarf. Prices of all other items are then upwards from that.

I was considering this Reversed French Terry Sweatshirt for my man, but it isn’t quite big enough. It goes up to XL but my partner is a double… so won’t quite fit. It’s priced at $21.90 with free shipping, which is quite a sweet deal. I don’t think there’d be much warmth in this sweater, it looks quite thin – but it would be good for layering.

One of my sisters would absolutely adore this Shaggy Faux Fur Vest which is currently priced at $41.80. The only thing that would make her like it better would be if it was real fur… but then not everyone agrees with that. Totally Free Shipping @ Forever21Canada & Items From Only $2.90 * Glitch?? *

Happy shopping!
