Dell Canada: Up to 50% Off Electronics Easter Sale

Dell Canada is offering up to 50% off select electronics and computers this Easter weekend.

Pick up either the Dell 23 Monitor – E2314H or the Dell 22 Monitor – S2240L for just $149.99 each this weekend after saving $50 off the regular price of $199.99. I’m really not sure what the difference is except for 1″ of size and a 1% colour gamut difference.

If you have not been a responsible computer owner and still need to update your anti-virus, then make sure to get the McAfee Download – McAfee Internet Security 3 PC 2014 for just $12.99, originally $69.99. If you don’t like just the download version and want a disk as well, you can get the disk version for $14.99.

This Toshiba Portable Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone is an absolute steal at $40 off the original price. Originally $69.99, it is now on sale for $29.99. Unlike many other speakers, this one has all the buttons you need to control your music without needing to be near the music player.

Don’t forget that the free ePromotional card offer is still ongoing at Dell when you buy a tablet, laptop, computer, or large electronic like a TV. You can see the previous blog post about that here.

Receive free shipping from Dell.

How To Be a Frugal Wedding Guest

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 8:00 PM

How To Be a Frugal Wedding Guest

With Spring and Summer comes nuptials. May is actually the month that most people get married in, what with all the beautiful flowers and colours and baby animals. You might be invited to a wedding this season and are stressing about it because it just might not be in your budget. I have a wedding this Summer that I’m looking forward to because I absolutely adore weddings, but I’m more stressing about childcare since one half of our family will be at the wedding. Childcare could also be another budget woe for you when it comes to wedding. So, how can you attend a wedding and not break the bank? I’ll tell you how.

Gift

As soon as you are invited to a wedding, the first thing on your mind might be a gift. Weddings are expensive for everyone, and while I don’t think anyone ever should expect a gift (and certainly not these bridezillas), it is good etiquette to give the new couple a gift, even if you don’t believe the marriage will ever last. Many people like to give money, especially if the couple is young and is just starting their life and would like to buy a house or have a nice honeymoon. If you aren’t sure what to give, check out this handy dandy calculator.

Moneysense suggests that if you know you have a wedding in your future, begin budgeting ahead of time. If you don’t have or want to give money, there are gifts you can give that are inexpensive, but thoughtful. Is there a service you can provide for the bride and groom that would go farther than any expensive gift? For example, as a writer I could write something beautiful for the wedding. A person with a lovely voice could sing at the reception. A floral arranger could do the bouquets. These services don’t have to be for the wedding either. A person who is a fantastic cook could offer to cook the bride and groom one special meal a month for the first year. If the couple has kids, offers of babysitting go a long way.

Alternatively, guests could make something special like pottery, artwork or more. Check out this Pinterest page with lots of great ideas for DIY wedding gifts.

Attire

Going to a wedding usually (but not always) means dressing formally. I don’t know how many women I’ve heard complain that they don’t have anything to wear to an upcoming wedding. I know I don’t have anything for the wedding we have coming up, so I need to figure out what to do. First, check your closet and figure out if you really don’t have anything. Just because a dress is ten years old doesn’t mean it won’t do perfectly. Some classics never go out of style (as long as they still fit). If you’ve worn a dress one too many times, try dressing it up a little more with showpiece jewellery or a scarf or a great pair of shoes. If you really feel like there is nothing in your closet, ask a friend. Even if your friend is not your size, I bet they could have some gems in there saved from a bigger or smaller time in their life. This is exactly what I did two years ago for a friend’s wedding. If all these are a no-go, consider wearing some classic dress pants and a top and doing your hair in a beautiful up-do that will be the star of the show, not your clothing. Pinterest also has some great ideas for up-dos.

Lodging

If your wedding is out of town or far enough away that you don’t want to drive home, you’ll need lodging, which could be expensive. I’ve found that hotels on sites like Hotels.com or Orbitz paired with coupon codes are really the best deal. Many times as well, the bride and groom will reserve a block of rooms somewhere at a discounted rate. Talk to them or someone else involved in the wedding if this is an option.

Showers & Other Parties

A wedding doesn’t just stop at the day of the wedding, there are usually a number of parties beforehand and some after that guests will be invited to attend. The shower, the stag, the buck and doe are all huge money-dwindlers that will leave you crying. Although all of these could be fun, opt to attend only one instead of all to save money. You could use the tips above for shower gifts, which shouldn’t be a huge cost anyway. If you really want to attend the bachelor or bachelorette parties (and why not, they are my favourite part!), opt to eat or drink before you go so you don’t spend a lot of money out on the town. Instead of spending a bunch of money at the buck and doe, sell as many tickets as you can for the event, knowing you contributed that way instead.

If you get a wedding invite and you really can’t afford to go, don’t go. Send a gift when you have the money at some point in the future. If the bride and groom are truly your friends, they will understand.

Bargainmoosers, what are your tips for not spending a lot this wedding season?

Best Buy: The Eddie Bauer Pilot Stroller Travel System is $199.99 ($130 Off)

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Best Buy: The Eddie Bauer Pilot Stroller Travel System is $199.99 ($130 Off)

You can pick up the Eddie Bauer Pilot Travel System (car seat and stroller) from Best Buy for $199.99 through April 19.

If you’re in the market for a new infant car seat and stroller, the Eddie Bauer Pilot Travel System at Best Buy is definitely worth checking out. This travel system normally sells for $329.99 but is $130 off right now. I did a little price checking and discovered that this is a pretty hot deal, since the same system currently sells for $369.99 at Sears, $329.99 at Babies R Us, and a whopping $393.96 at Amazon.ca. Almost makes me wish I had another baby on the way so I could justify buying one. Almost.

Back when I did need a stroller, I didn’t purchase a travel system, but wished I had. The convenience of being able to take your sleeping baby right from the car and into the stroller without unstrapping and waking him/her is a real plus. I also really like the look of this stroller. With it’s oval shape and modern colour scheme it has some of the flair of the higher-end stroller systems, but without the higher-end prices.

The sun canopy, multi-position recline, and lightweight frame are also handy features in a stroller. Particularly the lightweight frame, I used to walk everywhere with my son when he was in a stroller, and once I added a diaper bag and groceries I was grateful I hadn’t chosen a large heavy model (especially when he started to get bigger and heavier, as we live at the top of a large hill!).

Quantities are limited on this item and the discounted price is only available through April 19, so best to shop soon if you’re interested.

This item will ship for free.

Ice Jerseys Canada Promo Code: 15% Off All Orders

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Ice Jerseys Canada Promo Code: 15% Off All Orders

Ice Jerseys has two very interesting coupon codes out right now that will save you money on all your hockey and other sports gear. First, you can save 15% off everything on the site. If you want to save more, prove your allegiance to your team, even though they are losers, save 20% off gear from NHL teams eliminated from the 2014 playoffs.

Click here to shop @ Icejerseys.com now

  • Coupon Code: ELIM20
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: Unknown
  • Coupon Code: PUCKBUNNY15
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 21st April 2014

Living near Toronto and growing up there, most of my friends are Leafs fans. Unfortunately for them, even with their wishful and hopeful attitudes, the Leafs haven’t won the Stanley Cup I think since before I was born. In fact, the ad for this promo has some disappointed Leafs fans in it. I guess everyone just knows it won’t happen even before it starts. But, with the very loyal fan base, I’m sure that Leafs fans will want to buy Leafs gear at 20% off rather than getting a winning team’s jersey for 15% off. In fact, I have a friend who decks his entire family out in Leafs gear, all the way down to the babies and the grandparents. Love it!

Did you know you can also customize your jerseys and gear from Ice Jerseys. I think that’s so cool, it almost makes me want to like hockey (almost). This women’s premier replica alternate jersey for – you guessed it – the Toronto Maple Leafs was $99, but with coupon, you’ll get it for only $79.

My kids tell me Boston is the best team in the universe, although my one son only says this because it rhymes with his name. Either way, I do love the city of Boston, so how cute would any baby be in this Boston Bruins baby tweedle creeper, pant and hat set? Because they are still in it, you’ll have to use the 15% off coupon, but instead of paying $25, you’ll pay $21.75.

Spend $85 and you’ll also enjoy free shipping with your sports wear. To see these coupons live and up close, visit the Ice Jerseys page in our coupon forum.

Sears Canada: Craftsman 3-in-1 Gas Push Mower Only $160

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Sears Canada: Craftsman 3 in 1 Gas Push Mower Only $160

If your grass is starting to get long, you might be thinking about a new lawn mower. Sears has a great deal on the Craftsman 3-in-1 gas push mower, which is now only $169.99, was $229.99. Deduct another $10 easily with this coupon code. You’ll get it for only $159.99.

I just sold my house (yay!) and the people moving in are moving from an apartment. When you move from an apartment, you don’t realize all of the items you need for a house, a lawn mower probably being one of the most important and expensive ones. I want to tell my home buyers about this deal! While $60 off isn’t a crazy amount, I wanted to blog this lawn mower because it has really fantastic reviews, which six reviewers each giving it a 5-star rating. So, any savings on a mower as good as this one is a bonus, especially at this time of year.

I have to admit, I had to laugh at the guy who bought the mower for his wife because the last one was too heavy. I hope he didn’t get it as an anniversary or Christmas gift for her.

This mower is very versatile as it allows you to mulch your clippings, bag them or let them go out the side, without having to change anything on the mower.

Shipping will be free on this item as it is over $99.

Best Buy Canada: Kobo Arc 64GB Tablet Only $99

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: Kobo Arc 64GB Tablet Only $99

Get $50 off the Kobo Arc 64GB tablet, now only $99.99 at Best Buy.

We own two Kobo Arc tablets and I have to say they are fantastic quality, especially for the price. We own a smaller GB version, but we paid this much for ours, so this is a fantastic deal on someone wanting this many GB. I don’t think this sale will be on for long, as it is part of their web exclusive 38 hour sale, so scoop this up if this is on your wishlist. I think it makes a very affordable tablet for someone who doesn’t want to pay iPad prices or great for children and teens.

The Kobo name is synonymous with e-reading, which you can definitely do on this tablet, but not just that, you can surf the web, watch movies, check email, store documents and so much more. This to me, is a much better purchase than just the simple e-reader. Because it has a large capacity for storage, you can store a lot of books on here as well.

Reviewers say they love this tablet and it was definitely a good purchase for the money, even at $50 more. Although I pictured the black above, the white is the one on sale.

Shipping will be free on this as it is over $20.

Jag Jeans Canada Exclusive Promo Code: 20% Off Everything

Jag Jeans Canada Exclusive Promo Code: 20% Off Everything

Thanks to the awesome people who work for Bargainmoose, we’ve got an exclusive promo code for 20% off everything at Jag Jeans.

Click here to shop @ Jagjeans.com/ca

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE20
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 26th April 2014

Reading the description on Jag Jeans, they were created just last year to provide jeans to women of all body shapes and sizes for a perfect fit. Jean shopping can be a horrendous affair if your body is anything different than the models you see in magazines. For me, I have a belly, which means I need a larger waist size, but I find if I go to a larger size the butt and legs are too loose and the length is taller. I don’t get why a larger waist size means an all over larger fit.

Perusing the site, I also found the super-helpful Grace, who can get you out of or into any fashion scenario. And if you look closely, you just might realize that Just Ask Grace makes a pretty cool acronym.

Of course, I headed straight to the sale section to see what kind of deals I could score and then add 20% to it. I found these Tommy skinny boyfriend jeans because I love skinny jeans and carpris. These were originally $104 and went on sale for $78. Add the coupon and you’ll take them home for just $62.40.

Guess what else? Everything ships for free!

Roots Canada: Free Shipping Easter Weekend

Roots Canada: Free Shipping Easter Weekend

Roots Canada is offering an absolutely free shipping weekend to celebrate Easter.

Right now Roots also has a sale section with up to 50% off items with an additional promo for an extra 20% off when you add the sale items to your cart. That equals big savings on some of your favourite Roots gear.

The men’s Eagle Ridge Fleece Sweater was $109 and it is now discounted over 50%, down to just $49.98. It is available in red mix or black mix. After adding it to your cart, it comes down to just $39.98, which is a great deal on this sweater. One reviewer said:

This is a piece that I may wear to work vs the more casual cotton hoodie for relaxing and after work. The synthetic material wicks moisture and dries in an instant. Not quite as loose as the traditional Roots hoodie but still true to size.

I also would throw this Canada Hockey Stripe Scarf in my cart as it is only $19.98, down from $48. It is even cheaper once you add it to your cart, a mere $15.98.

There is a good selection of children’s shirts on sale from $12 down to $8.88. After you add them to your cart, they come down to just $7.10 each. Choose from:

‘Tg’ stands for toddler girl and ‘Tb’ stands for toddler boy. There are plenty of other great deals in the Roots sale section and they all qualify for free shipping. For other companies currently offering free shipping with no minimum, check out our free shipping page.

American Apparel Canada: Clearance Bottoms for Just $5

A couple days ago I blogged about AA tops for just $5! Here is edition two of the American Apparel sales post: pick up some matching bottoms for only $5 as well.

Let’s start our list of fabulous bottoms with shorts. This California Fleece Short was $32 and us now $5. Perfect for lounging around the house or checking out the gym. This Nylon Tricot Short Short looks so good on your butt you will just need to show it off. Try pairing it with a bikini top. Originally $24, now $5. Support the troops? Pick up this Military Short for only $5, was $30.

If you are into cycling you might want to grab either the Cotton Spandex Jersey Cycle Short for $5 (was $27) or the Nylon Tricot Cycle Shortwhich was $32 and is now only $5.

While not technically ‘bottoms’ you would wear out on their own, these Cotton Spandex Jersey Crop Leggings receive an honourable mention as they are super versatile and only $5 (were $28). We cannot forget a skirt to finish off our list of fun and fabulous $5 bottoms. This Interlock Mini Skirt is an absolute steal at only $5 as it originally cost $35! I used to own one of these in blue.

Topbox: Limited Edition FLARE Mani-Pedi Kit – Only $25

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Topbox: Limited Edition FLARE Mani Pedi Kit   Only $25

I blogged about Topbox.ca for the first time a couple days ago, and they have another limited edition kit I wanted to mention. The FLARE Mani-Pedi Kit is only $25 and comes with free shipping. You do not need to be a subscriber to purchase this kit.

Oddly enough, Topbox does not give the retail value of this box. So I had to run around and do a little price comparing myself. First of all, the box includes the following:

  • Six full sized quick-dry polishes: Tickle Me Pink, Trouble Maker, Get Juiced, I Lilac You, Strawberry Shields, and Jaded
  • Cuticle Eraser and Balm
  • Dry and Go Drops Top Coat
  • A nail file
  • 12-issue subscription to FLARE magazine – a $12.95 value

What you are getting is the Sally Hansen Salon line of products. This nail polish retails for $7.99 a bottle at Well.ca as does the top coat. I couldn’t find the exact cuticle cream pictured, but a different one by the same company costs $6.99. So the approximate value of this kit is $63 excluding the magazine subscription (or $76 total value including the subscription). I think you are getting a pretty nice deal.

Lowes Canada Promo Codes: 20% Off Snow Throwers & $10 Off $100

Today only, use the promo codes for Good Friday to get $20 off snow throwers or $10 off your $100 purchase.

  • Coupon Code: FRIDAY10
  • Discount: $10 off $100
  • Coupon Code: SNOW20
  • Discount: 20% off snow throwers
  • Expiry: 18th April 2014

It looks like the snow thrower deal is only on certain models, which are:

Snow Joe cordless 18″ snow blower with 40V EcoSharp battery – priced at $399, but $319.20 with coupon

Snow Joe ultra electric snow blower with light – priced at $249, but with coupon $199.20

Snow Joe 12″ 7.5 amp electric snow shovel - priced at $99.99, but now only $79.99 with coupon

I’m about to move to the cold north right into the snow belt. Although I already live in the snow belt, where I’m moving is notorious for giant snow banks. I know this is Ontario so I can’t complain like some of the other provinces, but shovelling snow really sucks. Many of you may have realized this and snow is the last thing on your mind on Easter weekend, but think ahead to the pain in your back for next year and get yourself 20% off. These items all also ship for free.

If snow isn’t on your mind, but you still want to shop at Lowes, the other coupon gets you $10 off your $100 order. You might be thinking fences and decks, and Lowes is the place to go for those items.

Shipping will depend on the size of your item, whether it will be delivered by truck or not, but if it is a parcel, it will ship for free.

OxiClean Mail in Rebate for up to $7.50 Back

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 12:30 PM

OxiClean Mail in Rebate for up to $7.50 Back

You can save money with deals, price matching and coupons, but there is another way as well that not too many people think about.  Mail-in rebates are a great way to save money on products and we have a new one for you.  Get up to $7.50 back.

This mail in rebate will work on two different products.  Purchase the OxiClean Stain Remover Powder (1.36kg/1.28kg) and an OxiClean Spray or OxiClean MaxForce Gel Stick and receive up to $7.50 back with this mail in rebate. The rebate will take just a minute or two to fill out.  Follow the directions exactly because they can be sticklers for the details.

All purchases must be made between April 19, 2014 and July 31, 2014 and the submissions must be received by October 31, 2014 to get your mail in rebate offer.

One of the great things about mail-in rebates is that you can use coupons and price matching as well in conjunctions with them.  For example, if you have a product that is $10 and you use a coupon for $5 and the rebate is for $5 back, you will end up getting that product for free in the end.

Additionally, you can actually MAKE money on them!  Let’s say your product is $10 and you use a coupon for $6 off.  If the rebate is $5, you will still get the full $5 back making yourself $1 in the end.  I have done this many times with products even if I didn’t want them.  You get the free item, make $1 and if I don’t want the product, I give it away because it was free anyways.

The best way to use your mail in rebate is to wait for the product to go on sale so you get the most from your money.

Home Depot Coupon: $3 Off Easter Hydrangea (printable)

Home Depot Coupon: $3 Off Easter Hydrangea (printable)

Home Depot Canada has another great coupon right now and this time it is perfect for an Easter gift.  Save $3 on any Easter Hydrangea for a limited time only.

You will be able to use this printable coupon for two hydrangeas saving you a total of $6 on two plants.  I suggest grabbing two different colours for you house.

I actually walked into Home Depot yesterday looking for something small and was overwhelmed by the scent of the beautiful Easter Hydrangeas right when you walk in.  They have a fairly big variety of colours and they smelled beautiful.  They are the perfect table centerpiece for Easter dinner, or even just a decoration for any room of your house.

The great thing about these Easter plants is that you can give them as a gift or buy for yourself, and after Easter, you can just plant them in your yard! I prefer giving plants to flowers such as a bouquet of roses because you don’t just throw them away after a week.  You can plant them at your home and enjoy them for much longer.

This printable Home Depot coupon and all others will be posted up on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.
