Royal Bank Canada Freebie: Free $50 Gift Card (Non-RBC Customers Only)

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Royal Bank Canada Freebie: Free $50 Gift Card (Non RBC Customers Only)

Which bank are you with? If you’re not with RBC, then you could score yourself a free $50 Visa gift card! Keep reading to find out more.

There is no purchase required to redeem this freebie. All you need to do is book an appointment to go chat with an RBC financial adviser about your banking needs and at the end of the meeting, the $50 Visa gift card will be yours.

Once the time comes to go to the appointment, make sure to bring a copy of your last banking account statement as the financial adviser that you meet with will review it with you in an effort to demonstrate how much better banking with RBC would be for you. In order to qualify for the promotion, you must have an active personal account (a chequing one) with any bank other than RBC.

Personally, I have been with RBC for over a decade now and I love everything from the customer service to the ease of online banking, etc. In case you’re curious, RBC’s app is also well-made and is easy to use. Both the site and the app are very straightforward and whatever you need to do gets accomplished quickly.

To give you an idea, chequing accounts at RBC start from $4 per month for 10 debit transaction with the RBC No Limit account all the way up to $30 per month for unlimited transactions and free overdraft protection with the RBC VIP Banking account. In between these two, you can also get either the No Limit Banking account for $10.95 per month with unlimited transactions and $4/ month overdraft protection or RBC Signature No Limit banking for $14.95 per month with both unlimited transactions and overdraft protection. All of these accounts also waive certain other fees, so make sure to check out RBC’s Banking Accounts page for an overview of all of these.

Even if you’re perfectly happy with your current bank, it’s definitely worth checking out what other banks have to offer every once in a while because you never know when you can get something better. This freebie is definitely a major incentive as well!

Moosers, which bank are you with? What are your thoughts on the bank you’re with?

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

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

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Unsure as to what to get someone on your Christmas list? Then impress your loved one(s) by making one of the following last minute Christmas gift idea. Best part of all is that these are all very frugal ideas and are guaranteed to cost less than if you were to buy them already made. Plus, it’s just that much more special if you make your gift yourself.

1. Candy Cane Hand Scrub

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Here’s an idea from Cutepolish that I actually plan on doing myself. It’s super quick, easy and looks like it could be very effective. Simply combine sugar, coconut oil and peppermint essential oil in a mason jar or container, mix and that’s it, you have a candy cane hand scrub. I plan on making mine in mason jar mugs, so that my friends can then re-use it for a drink.

2. Irish Cream Liquor

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Are you spending Christmas at someone else’s house? Then you can’t show up empty-handed! Make your own Irish cream liquor instead with the help of A Farm Girl In The Making‘s recipe. We all know how pricey good quality liquors can be, so the best way to save money is to mix your own drinks. For this recipe, you’re going to need Irish whisky, heavy cream, fat free sweetened condensed milk, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, vanilla extract and cold coffee.

3. Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

I love love love this idea! Although you could just walk into a store and buy a pre-packaged gift basket with different hot chocolate packets, it’s so much better if you make your own. To make it even more unique, follow Bubbly Nature Creations‘ instructions to place the hot chocolate mix into clear plastic fillable ornaments. If you really want to make your gift standout, then you could also paint the ornaments. For any of you with babies or kids, this is a great opportunity to make hand-print ornaments as well! 6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

4. Mason Jar Candle

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Have you ever received or given candles as a gift? Then can easily be tacky but not if you make your own! Something Turquoise has a very easy-to-follow guide on how to make your own mason jar candles that anyone is sure to appreciate receiving as a gift, especially if you also personalize the jar.

5. Beeswax Lip Balm

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Know someone who loves Burt’s Bees or better yet, love natural products altogether? Then make them lip balm from beeswax that is very similar to the Burt’s Bees one. Broke & Healthy has a very clear guide on how to make your own with loads of explanations and helpful pictures.

6. Bath Bombs

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

If you’re really stumped as to what to get someone for Christmas, it can be extremely tempting to walk into one of those heavily scented stores at the mall like Lush or The Body Shop Canada to get a skincare gift set but considering these gifts are more often misses than hits, make your own to avoid any mishaps. As you can see by Maria’s Self recipe, bath bombs are actually super easy and quick to make. Just make sure that the giftee enjoys taking bats first. 6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Amazon Canada: 50% Off Frozen Toys *HOT*

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 5:50 PM

Amazon Canada: 50% Off Frozen Toys *HOT*

Amazon Canada has discounted several different Frozen themed toys at 50% off the original price.

This is a great sale and the prices are incredibly hot.

This Disney Frozen Magiclip Small Doll Anna Giftset was $43.18 and is now $22.99. Most the small doll gift sets seem to retail around $45 to $49 at other retailers, so this is a fantastic deal.

While I blogged about this Disney Frozen Sparkle Anna of Arendelle Doll before, it has now taken another price dive down to just $12.49. Even on rollback at Walmart, the dolls are $14.94 so Amazon’s deal is certainly better.

This incredibly beautiful Disney Frozen Swirling Snow Sleigh is now $14.49, down from $34.99. The toy is actually 59% off, which is higher than all the others are. This toy will fit the mini dolls that you get with the small doll gift sets. The sleigh itself includes one Anna doll.

Missing out on an Olaf doll? This Disney Frozen Olaf Doll is now $9.99, originally $19.99. It is a great little toy to add to your gift with the dolls.

This Disney Frozen Ice Skating Anna is just $17.40, down from $34.99 at Amazon right now. Toys R Us has the same doll for just $37.97 and Walmart Canada has the same toy for just $34.99.

We blogged about the Disney Frozen MagiClip Flip ‘N Switch Castle and Anna Doll a little bit ago but it has gone through another price drop to just $12.49, from $24.99 retail.

Last but not least, this Disney Frozen Colour Change Anna Fashion Doll is just $14.99, originally $29.99. The doll costs $26.94 at Walmart Canada so this price is really to die for right now.

Unfortunately, most of these items are all Anna themed – so rather limited for anyone who is more of an Elsa fan. I do like the deal on Olaf though as it is a bit different from everything else.

All of these are incredible deals on Frozen toys. I know it is very late to be ordering toys for Christmas, but with an Amazon Prime membership, “you can shop until Dec.22 and enjoy unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping” so you will get your toys in time for the holidays. I have detailed before how you can get a free Student Prime or Family Prime trial.

Without an Amazon Prime membership, receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Home Hardware 2014 Boxing Day Flyer Now Live! (Now Through 3rd Jan 2015)

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 3:54 PM

Home Hardware 2014 Boxing Day Flyer Now Live! (Now Through 3rd Jan 2015)

I don’t know a town that doesn’t have a Home Hardware. I live in a fairly small town and we have one here. It is our go-to store for anything for the home and in fact, I had to go in there the other day to buy toys for a toy drive as there are no other spots in town for that sort of thing.

Home Hardware has started their Boxing Day sales already and we’ve got the flyer for you.

Some items of note include:

  • DeWalt 12 volt Li-Ion 3/8″ drill/driver kit was $184.99 and now only $99.97
  • 24″ snow pusher with a hardwood handle was $18.99, now $10.44
  • Ultrasonic personal humidifier was $29.99, now $14.97 – this would be great on your desk in the office
  • Benchmark Auto Lock locking plier set was $29.99, now $9.99
  • 6 outlet power bar was $10.99, now $3.66 – use this to plug in all your new electronics – great for stocking stuffers!

I really need a kettle, so I’m going to head in and pick up the 1.4 litre whistling tea kettle, which was $14.99, now $11.24.

I also could use more step stools in this house as the kids seem to steal them for whatever mischievous purpose they need them for and I can never find one when I need it. Regularly $10.99 and on sale for $6.57.

They’ve also got a huge in-store clearance going on, with up to 54% off select items.

With cold and flu season here, you might want to check out the Sunbeam 1.2 gallon warm mist vapourizer. These work wonders for kids and babies who just can’t sleep when sick. Regularly $22.99 and now $16.97, this is a good price for such a useful item.

Speaking of useful, it seems Home Hardware is a store of only practical items! You can save 54% on HDMI cables, which are great to stock up on, because these also seem to go missing without warning. Regularly $21.99 and on sale for only $9.97, that is one deal that you won’t pass up.

Some of these items you can actually order online and pick up in-store when you see fit. Others, you’ll just have to pop into the store sometime between now and January 3rd and hope your items are in stock and haven’t sold out.

Here’s the flyer!

Petsmart Canada: 50% Off Dog Beds

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Petsmart Canada: 50% Off Dog Beds

Petsmart Canada is offering 50% off a selection dog beds just in time for you to stick something comfy under the tree for your pooch. As per usual with Petsmart, you order online and pick-up in store.

There is a plethora of beds on sale and the prices cannot be beat! For anyone on a tight budget, these first few deals are for you. The Grreat Choice Pet Holiday Dog Bed was $21.99 and is now $10.99. For small to medium pets, this bed comes in assorted colours. The Grreat Choice Cuddler Dog Bed is just like the above bed but not in Christmas colours. Originally $21.99, this bed is also on sale for $10.99.

For medium-size dogs, there are quite a few good options. The Grreat Choice Corduroy Dog Bed is 33″ x 45″ in size and makes a comfortable pillow for your pet to sleep on. Originally $43.99, the bed is now on sale for $21.99. Kong also makes fantastic dog beds and you can choose from two different styles. Both the Kong Bed (1) and the Kong Bed (2) were $65.99 and are now on sale for $32.99. They can handle medium dogs up to about 80 lbs.

If your pet is a pampered prince or just needs a little extra comfort, then this Martha Stewart Pets Beautyrest Napper Dog Bed will be a big hit. These beds usually cost a small fortune but you can buy this one for just $38.49, originally $76.99.

These beds are good for more than just dogs – large cats can also enjoy the comfort of a dog bed. The smaller ones from Grreat Choice work well for large tomcats. We have two big boy cats that weigh in around 18 lbs each. Rather than pay twice the price for a large enough cat bed, we scored two dog beds for $10 each. The cats do not mind and they actually fit in the beds.

I know it can be inconvenient to have to go pick-up your order from Petsmart, but I am still very excited about this deal. It is nice to find such amazing deals online and be able to secure your savings without having to take a trip to Petsmart just in hope they still have some in stock. Too often, I have gone to buy something and it is OOS by time I get there. This way, it is waiting for me to arrive!

These are clearance beds so I am not sure when the promotion ends. The 30% off bed sale ends tonight, so it could end at the same time.

Nuvango Coupon Code: 20% Off Gift Cards

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 3:06 PM

Nuvango Coupon Code: 20% Off Gift Cards

We are hitting and passing most of the shipping dates for Christmas so now is the time to look towards gift cards for any presents you are missing. Nuvango (formerly Gelaskins) is offering 20% off all gift cards before Christmas.

Click here to order a Nuvango gift card now

  • Coupon Code: 20CARDS
  • Discount: 20% off gift cards
  • Expiry: 24th December 2014

I like this promotion because it is a rarity amongst businesses: not many companies offer discounts on their gift certificates. In fact, when coupons show up for websites the fine print makes sure to exclude gift certificates.

You can order your gift card in whatever denomination you like. Celebrate December 25th by sending your loved one a $25 gift card. Here is some of the savings you can expect from popular denominations of gift cards:

  • $25 gift card for $20
  • $50 gift card for $40
  • $75 gift card for $60
  • $100 gift card for $80

Now, you can also buy these for yourself. If you are planing a Nuvango purchase in the future, why not save money up front with 20% off a gift card? Then you can combine the gift card savings with a sale, when one comes along, and you have just scored yourself an incredible deal my friend.

I really enjoy the art at Nuvango and have one of their hard cases on my cell phone and one of the screen covers they sell on the screen as well. While I see nightmare pictures of iPhone screens shattered beyond recognition, my phone is cozy and kept in one piece by Nuvango. I love my cover and haven’t really thought of another in some time. However, Brian Viveros‘ work is just so bad-ass that I am dying to get a case from one of his art pieces for my real bad girl days. War Child is one of my favourite of his pieces.

For something a bit more exciting and boundary-pushing, I would enjoy carrying around Tiger Girl (warning: nudity) by Javier G. Pacheco. The combination of the glowing-eyed tiger head and the milky-white ‘fragile’ nude female figure is just mesmerizing. I love the juxtaposition and i think we can all create our own stories as to what the image means.

All prices are in US dollars. The gift card will be delivered via free email delivery – straight to your inbox. Then you can print it off and gift it as appropriate.

For this and any future Nuvango coupon codes, visit our forum.

Home Depot: Himalayan Salt Lamp $20 & Free Shipping

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 2:09 PM

Home Depot: Himalayan Salt Lamp $20 & Free Shipping

Purchase a Himalayan Ionic Natural Salt Lamp (11-15 lbs) for only $19.99 plus free shipping. This lamp originally cost $27.50 at Home Depot.

While this may not seem like a large discount on the lamp, this is a very good deal for several reasons. First, the lamp retails for much higher elsewhere. I found the exact same lamp for $34.28 at Amazon Canada. I also found other Himalayan Salt Lamps of the same size (11 – 15 lbs) at places like Well.ca for $34.49. The average price for an 11 to 15 lb (5 to 6.8 kg) seems to be the mid-$35 range, so scoring a lamp for only $20 is sweet. The free shipping is also very nice as this lamp weighs quite a bit.

Now, what is a Himalayan Salt Lamp all about anyway? Activated Himalayan salt is believed to aid in the reduction of electromagnetic pollution (like from electronics), by the release of negative ions. This is supposed to have numerous health benefits including relaxation, improved focus, and more. The question always comes down to – is this all hype or is it truly healthy? According to numerous experts – it is mostly just hype. As one article puts it:

Suggesting that a Himalayan Salt Lamp can generate enough negative ions to benefit your health is like suggesting that a farmer could water thirty acres of farmland with a hand-held spray bottle.

You get the point. However, the salt lamp has other benefits. The lamp creates a warm glow that can be very relaxing and help you reduce stress. Stress is like a toxin to your body so anything that reduces stress is very good for your body and your mind. The lamp is also soothing, sets the mood, is comforting, and can be downright enjoyable. As this reviewer says:

The warm golden glow of that light shining through the salt crystal is amazingly comforting. To me, it looks like the sun at sunset. I use it for a night light. The adjustable brightness control is ideal for the nights when I prefer a darker bedroom. Though, It would be beautiful and soothing in any room.

The Himalayan Salt Lamp also works through a placebo effect. That is when people believe that something works and thus they exhibit symptoms of improvement that align with their belief of how the thing should be helping them. It is cool how strong the power of belief is – it can heal your body and help you on the path to wellness.

Canadian Freebie: 3 Free Tea Bags @ Twinings Canada

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 1:27 PM

Canadian Freebie: 3 Free Tea Bags @ Twinings Canada

Hop on over to Twinings Canada to request three free sample bags of tea!

I just love this freebie because it is free tea! I drink a pot of tea almost every day so this freebie gives me three days of wonderful tea to try. I do not having much experience with the Twinings brand, so this is a welcome addition to my tea collection. One of my favourite things about this deal is the choices: you get to choose which bags you will receive. Many samples are random selection so this is very nice.

Did I mention choice? Oh yes, you get to choose from 30 different teas from four different categories:

  • Black Teas
  • Chais
  • Herbal Infusions
  • Green Teas

I am a huge fan of chai tea so my first choice would probably be the Chai French Vanilla, thought the Chai Spiced Apple sounds so delicious as well. I might just have to get both of those and then only choose one other tea bag from the other categories. I really like chai tea in the winter because it is such a warm and flavourful tea full of spices. It is great for cold winter days and nights.

Here are some of the other amazing flavours that peak my interest:

  • Lady Grey
  • Pure peppermint
  • Goodnight Blend
  • Green Earl Grey

I usually hate green tea but I recently learned some secrets for brewing the leaf. First, you let the water sit after boiling for about five minutes. If you pour boiling water directly on green tea leaves, you are liable to burn the leaf, which produces a bitter taste in your tea. In addition, you want to be careful not to let the tea over steep. I usually leave my tea in the water until I am finished my tea, but green tea you should only leave in for 3 – 5 minutes (or however long the box says) and then take it out of the water.

I am so pleased with this freebie and I hope you are as well. Leave a comment below to let me know which three bags you chose! Samples will arrive in four to six weeks.

French Connection Canada: Cottage Cotton Coat Was $228 | Now $72

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 12:10 PM

French Connection Canada: Cottage Cotton Coat Was $228 | Now $72

Looking for a great coat to dress up your outfits? French Connection has a stylish and classic cotton coat on sale for a great price. With a regular price of $228, this coat is on sale for $79.99. Use coupon code MYFCDEAL to get another 10% off and pay only $71.99. That’s a total savings of over $150.

Personally, I would not have paid full price for this coat. It is more of a light coat that will be a great throw on when you are cool or when you are running out the door. I see this being worn quite a bit in the spring, or in the office on the chilly days. I like that it is casual, but also dressy. White is also the perfect colour to throw over any outfit, especially when you love to wear all black. This will brighten you up!

It also has two front pockets, which is very handy if you don’t want to take your purse out with you. My mom just bought something similar to this because it is a great cover-up and has those handy pockets. I also like like that it looks just as good zipped up as it does unzipped.

The coupon MYFCDEAL will get you 10% off any sale item, but also 40% off any regular priced item. You don’t just have to use it on this coat, you can see what other deals are looming on French Connection to save you the most money.

I also completely love this city twill jacket as it has a military style and is just a coat you want to look at. I bet you don’t have anything like this at home. With a regular price of $168 and on sale for $99.99, you’ll score it for $89.99 once you add the coupon.

Men don’t have to miss out on the hot deals either and my hubby would love this FCUK zip thru, regularly $88, on sale for $39.99 and with a total of $35.99 once you add the coupon.

Shipping is a flat rate depending on your province, although there is a coupon code for free shipping, it depends on what you are buying as to which coupon would save you the most money. If you live in Ontario, you’ll spend the least on shipping – Northwest Territories, you’re out of luck!

Home Depot Pre Boxing Day Flyer Starts Now Until December 24th

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 11:14 AM

Home Depot Pre Boxing Day Flyer Starts Now Until December 24th

Home Depot has released their Pre Boxing Week Blowout flyer. The deals start today and will run through the 24th of December. That means it is time to stop procrastinating and get the tools and appliances you need.

This is an excellent event to shop if you need to freshen up your home with some new appliances or other household items. You will get fantastic Boxing Week prices and then get another 10% off the last ticketed price on major appliances.

The Amana Laundry pair is exclusive to Home Depot and looks like a wonderful deal. This pair consists of a 3.6 Cu. Ft. washer as well as a 6.5 Cu. Ft. dryer. This team is sure to tackle all of your laundry missions. I couldn’t find this on site, so this is an in-store only deal. This Amana washer and dryer would normally cost you $696 but during this Pre Boxing Week Blowout at Home Depot, you will pay just $575.10.

If you were looking for some last minute Christmas ideas rather than large appliances, you won’t be let down. The 5 piece Husky 3/8″ Drive Mechanic Tool Set was $55 and now just $24.88. If you are tired of your man leaving the garage as a tornado of clustered tools, then you might also appreciate the Husky 52″ 18 Drawer Tool Chest and Cabinet Set for $599. Other brands can compare at $699-$899 for similar products, although this particular Husky tool chest is exclusive to Home Depot. Of course if you were looking for something a little smaller, you could always go for the Husky 46″ 9 Drawer Mobile Workbench, which is now $299 while quantities last. All of these tools are available in-store only.

If you were actually in the market for furniture rather than appliances, there are lots of deals on home organization, chairs and other items for your home. In fact you could organize your main entry for only $159.94 when you purchase the Entryway Wall Storage along with the Entryway Bench with Shoe Storage as advertised in the flyer. These particular items are available in stores only.

There are also clearance items available at a great discount, while quantities last. You will save up to 50% off select:

  • interior lighting
  • Christmas lights
  • yard decor and inflatables

You can also save up to 30% off select:

  • artificial Christmas trees
  • wreaths
  • ornaments

I know some families like to set up their Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, which would make this an excellent chance to save on your Christmas tree and decor and still be able to get it up on Christmas Eve. Personally, I bought my tree last year at the Target clearance sale after Christmas and had it set up late November this year in my home.

You can see this Home Depot flyer in our forum.

My Outlet Store Canada: Graco High Back TurboBooster Car Seat Was $69 | Now $35

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 10:17 AM

My Outlet Store Canada: Graco High Back TurboBooster Car Seat Was $69 | Now $35

If your child is getting too large for their car seat, you might want to pop them into a booster (as long as they meet the required guidelines). Luckily for you, booster seats are much cheaper than car seats and this deal at My Outlet Store will ensure you don’t break the bank switching your child over to a booster seat. Regularly $69, get the Graco High Back TurboBooster car seat in the spitfire pattern for only $39. Add the coupon code CARDSWAP to get another 10% off and pay only $35.10.

I think this is a fantastic price for a high back booster, as I paid $25 for my now back boosters and I wish that I had gotten the high back one. What’s better about the high back booster is that it has energy absorbing side headrests, which help to protect in an accident. Even just for comfort, the headrest is great if your child falls asleep in the car, which mine does on a regular basis. This way, their neck is not strained by the weight of their head.

I also like that it has cupholders, because if you have a van like mine, there are no cupholders in the second row of seats. Sure, there are the ones on the front middle console, but a kid strapped in can’t reach those and you’ll have to listen to them whining for you to pass them their drink and then put it back every 30 seconds. I like it when they have their own cupholders!

If your older child doesn’t like sitting in a high-back booster because it looks too much like a car seat and they feel like a “baby”, this model converts back to a regular booster with no back. I love that feature!

The fabric print is pretty neutral so that you can use this for both a boy and a girl.

The cheapest that I found a Graco high back booster was at Sears, where it sells for $50.99, so you are saving a minimum of $20. I couldn’t find it on sale at any other store.

Shipping is free when you spend over $75, so you might want to look at some of the other sales in home, fashion and kids. I quite liked these Vrum ride-on storage cases that would come down to $26 with coupon, with a regular price of $50. You could also look at the Carters snowsuits, which were $55 and would be $35 with coupon.

G2 Women’s Cover Up Tank Only $1 @ Walmart.ca! * HOT! *

G2 Womens Cover Up Tank Only $1 @ Walmart.ca! * HOT! *

Tank tops make excellent stocking stuffers. Wrap them in a unique way and put them in a stocking and they will never see what is coming. Walmart.ca has a hot offer on tank tops perfect for the occasion. While quantities are available, you can purchase the G2 Womens Cover Up Tank for only $1 from Walmart Canada!

Stock will not last long on this zinger of a deal, so choose your preferred colour and add it to your cart. This G2 Womens Cover Up Tank from Walmart is only $1 and comes in 3 different colours. Choose from black, orange and sky blue. This tank top was previously $5.94 which was already pretty reasonable, but I can’t resist a $1 cover up top! These tops are great to wear with leggings or skinny jeans.

At the time of this post, the black tank top had all sizes except medium available while the orange and blue versions are limited to one or two sizes left (large, medium for blue and extra small, small for orange). Reviews say that this top is longer than usual, but that is to be expected from a cover up tank top in my personal opinion.

This shirt reminds me of summer and I just want to grab a tropical drink and sit by the beach while wearing it. The easy pull over style would even make it convenient to wear over your bikini.

Walmart.ca always ships for free, which is a great added bonus to this already hot offer. I mean, where else can you get a tank top for only $1 that ships for free?

Here is one of the reviews from Walmart.ca:

Not understanding why people are complaining that the item is too long. It’s a cover up, ladies. I’m 5’6 and ordered a large so that it would be baggy. It reaches mid thigh, the back of the shirt is longer making it asymetrical. It’s flattering and does what it’s supposed to do. I bought a couple for sleeping in and a couple for lounging around the house/pool in the summer!

Reviews also say that this shirt is made a little big, so I would suggest ordering a size smaller than normal. I am normally a medium and added a couple of the black G2 Cover Up Tank Tops in size small to my cart.

(Save 60%) Schleich Big Knight’s Castle Was $168 now $67 @ Amazon.ca!

(Save 60%) Schleich Big Knights Castle Was $168 now $67 @ Amazon.ca!

It is time to pillage and raid! Schleich Big Knight’s Castle is on sale @ Amazon.ca – it was $167.99 and is now only $67.20. You will save 60% after you grab this castle from Amazon. This item also qualifies for free shipping.

There are rumors brewing of an enemy attack. I have heard there are knights, ninjas and pirates lined up outside the city gates, and they look like they are ready to fight. The king has taken his council in to his chambers and soon the battle will begin. This is an awesome deal if you have a kid who loves pretend play. Most little faces (and enthusiastic adults also!) would light up seeing an amazing castle of this size and detail.

This big model includes many details that many other play sets do not have.  Make sure you save floor space for this set. This set is humongous at 140 x 56.5 x 55 cm. Some of the great features include:

  • A trap door and secret passage to the dungeon
  • 2 figures included- Dragon Knight and Griffin Knight with shields
  • Moving gate with realistic sound
  • Individual castle pieces are able to mix and match to create several different looking castles
  • Detailed rock work and building

On Amazon.ca this castle is rated as #8 in Toys & Games > Action & Toy Figures > Figures. This set has high reviews and users seem to love it. One user was skeptical of the age range for this set until the box came.

“My six-year-old daughter is going through a “fairy-tale castle” stage. I was initially taken aback that such an elaborate and expensive set would be recommended for ages thirty-six months to fifteen years. We were very impressed. This castle, though plastic, is exceptionally detailed with an amazing weathered look to the “stone”. This is, without a doubt, the best quality playset I have ever seen.” 

Buyers are reporting that the set is a little intimidating at first. The set has many pieces that are wrapped individually for shipping. Once the pieces are opened, the set assembles easily in 20 to 30 minutes. You may want to have a couple extra hands on deck to help you unwrap and put together this detailed monster if you want to have it ready to play quickly.

You will pay a lot more for this set elsewhere and all the price points seem to match. From around the web here are a few other places you could buy.

  • $150 @ LearningToys.ca
  • $160 @ Master Mind Toys
  • $160 @ Treasure Island Toys
  • $165 @ Toy Jungle

Most of the biggest retailers are not carrying this item, perhaps because of the size and detail. I would say this is a great buy. Schleich is known for detailed toys and there are many knights, dragons, horses and other pieces you can purchase to add on to this set. This set is a steal right now.

SUPER HOT! Crayola Digital Light Designer Only $10 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! Quick! (EXPIRED)

SUPER HOT! Crayola Digital Light Designer Only $10 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! Quick! (EXPIRED)

While browsing Walmart for new clearance items first thing this morning, I spotted a deal on this Crayola Digital Light Designer. It looked like a mediocre deal, being just half price as marked on the Walmart site. But upon doing a price comparison, I saw that this was a much hotter price than expected – I’ll explain this below. Right now, you can click through to Walmart and pick up one of these for only $10 with free shipping.

As we’ve seen in the last few weeks, hot sale items on clearance at Walmart can sometimes sell out within minutes – if you are interested in this Crayola Digital Light Designer, buy it NOW and think later.

Why I think this is such a hot deal – let’s look at the prices elsewhere.

  • $49.99 @ Amazon.ca
  • $34.98 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $39.99 @ Sears
  • $47.95 @ Mastermind Toys
  • $30 @ London Drugs
  • $95 @ Newegg.ca

See!? The Walmart price is fabulous. If you want to know if it will be at your door in time for Christmas, pop the item in your shopping cart and add your postcode and Walmart shows you the estimated delivery date.

If you want to know a bit more about this Crayola toy, here’s a little video.

It’s cute! I would have loved one of these when I was a young child. I simply adore all things Crayola.
