Amazon.ca: Frozen Planet The Complete Series [Blu-ray] Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:45 PM

Amazon.ca: Frozen Planet The Complete Series [Blu ray] Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada has discounted the BBC’s Frozen Planet: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] from an original retail price of $62.48 down to $14.99. This is the lowest price that I have seen this wonderful series from the BBC.

I price compared this set to other popular retailers. Only one store matched Amazon Canada’s price, and they only have one left in stock.

  • $14.99 @ Future Shop (1 left) (UK)
  • $19.96 @ Walmart Canada (US)
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada (UK)
  • $42.71 @ Staples Canada (OOS) (US)

Now, the series at Amazon.ca is the original UK series whereas there is also a US version (noted by a different cover) that I price compared against as well. You really want the original UK series… from reviews I have read, it is just better.

I figured with how quickly Future Shop’s stock is selling out, that this is a good deal. I bought this set for well over double this price a few years ago because I could not wait to add it to my collection. I am a huge BBC nature series fan and this is yet another documentary narrated by the amazing David Attenborough.

With seven episodes spread over three discs with bonus material, you are certainly getting your money’s worth and then some. The episodes are:

  1. “To the Ends of the Earth”
  2. “Spring”
  3. “Summer”
  4. “Autumn”
  5. “Winter”
  6. “The Last Frontier”
  7. “On Thin Ice”

This documentary takes you to some of the most inhospitable places on earth – Antarctica and The Arctic – to show you the life cycle of plants and animals that dwell or migrate to these regions. Enjoy an intimate look at the survival of polar bears, penguins, killer whales, snow geese, and more.

Some of my favourite work is in the bonus materials. Each episode contains a “freeze frame” segment (at the end) explaining how the camera crews captured a particular sequence. Often it is at great peril, after weeks of disappointment, or complete fluke. You get to see behind the camera, which is incredible.

I love this series very much; it is one of my favourite documentaries to watch – especially in the summer. While watching icebergs and snow as far as the eyes can see will not cool me down in the summer heat, it gives me an escape. I completely agree with a reviewer who says:

Wow! I thought this series was great. I have always had a fascination with the polar regions and this BBC series certainly showed them at their best. It is amazing to see what different animals do in order to survive in these harsh environments.

Google Play Store: 99¢ Albums – Sam Smith, Drake, & Beck

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:27 PM

Google Play Store: 99¢ Albums   Sam Smith, Drake, & Beck

Google Play Store has discounted three albums from popular artists to only 99¢ each! Given that a single song usually retails for $1.29, this is a hot deal.

The three sale albums are as follows:

Sam Smith – In The Lonely Hour (Google Play Exclusive Deluxe Edition)

I highly recommend this album. Sadly, I just bought three songs from this album on iTunes, paying well over what the entire album would cost on Google. The album includes 15 and earns an overall rating of 4.7/5 on Google Play. My favourite songs are Stay With Me, I’m Not the Only One, and Like I Can. The album has a run time around 50 minutes.

Drake – Nothing Was The Same

This album comes with 13 songs for a total run time of just under one hour. Nothing Was The Same ranks a solid 4.5/5 on the Google rating scale. The album is explicit (watch out little ears) but appears to be well loved. I know nothing about the artist Drake, so if you do please comment.

Beck – Morning Phase

This is another artist I am not terribly familiar with. However, for 99¢ you are receiving 13 songs for a run time of approximately 47 minutes. This album was just released a year ago, so still fairly new. Morning Phase rates 4.3/5 stars, but with less than 800 reviews.

Now, make sure that you get directed to the Google Play store for Canada. These albums are full price at the US store right now. I found that Sam Smith’s album (only one I am personally interested in) retails for $10.49 US. I also price compared these digital albums to iTunes. Here is what you would expect to pay for each album currently on iTunes:

  • In The Lonely Hour – $7.99
  • Nothing Was the Same – $6.99 (E)
  • Morning Phase – $6.99

The Nothing Was the Same album was hard to price compare, as there are four different versions on iTunes! But I picked the one that matched the one on Google closest. There is a ‘clean’ version of this album but that is not the one being sold for 99¢ on the Google Play Store.

If you need a little inspiration, I have attached a YouTube video of Sam Smith singing Like I Can:

Today Only: 81% Off Via Rail 3-Pc Luggage Set @ Future Shop Canada – Was $365 | Now Just $70 (HOT!)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:02 PM

Today Only: 81% Off Via Rail 3 Pc Luggage Set @ Future Shop Canada   Was $365 | Now Just $70 (HOT!)Wow wow wow, need luggage? Today only, you can save an incredible 81% on the Via Rail Canada Trans Canada 3-piece luggage set at Future Shop. Originally priced as high as $364.99, it’s now down to just $69.99 and comes with absolutely free shipping!

Having just returned from vacation recently, I can tell you that packing can be a real pain in the butt. If you are planning on travelling soon and don’t have a luggage set yet, then this is a definitely amazing deal. The last thing you want to do is pay an outrageous price for a set at the same time as having to pay for the expenses of your trip.

This set is made from 1200 Denier water-resistant polycord. One of the most important factors to look at when choosing a set is the weight of each piece. The lighter the set, the more you can pack! In this case, the largest suitcase is 4.2kg, the medium piece is 3.6kg and the tote weighs 0.8 kg. What’s also great about this set is that it’s expandable to offer 30% more room. The description doesn’t specify whether the tote is expandable as well, but it would be my assumption that the expandable specification only applies to the suitcases. Both suitcases also come with inline skate wheels and an expandable handle to make transporting your luggage a breeze.

The tote features a large zipper to make packing easier and also comes with a removable toiletries kit.

Price comparing proved somewhat of a challenge but I did find a couple of Via Rail luggage sets on sale at Canada Luggage Depot. The cheapest Via Rail luggage set I found there is the locomotive lightweight hardside 3-pc spinner one, down to $179.99 (reg. $675), so despite boasting a large discount as well, the deal at Future Shop is still a better one by a long shop, though do keep in mind that these are two entirely different sets. All of the other sets at Canada Luggage Depot that resemble the one at Future Shop are over $259.

There are other huge discounts on luggage sets today only at Future Shop as well but the Via Rail set is by far the cheapest one. The Travelpro Maxlite 2 3-pc luggage set, for instance, is currently $830 off and is on sale for just $299.99 (reg. $1,129.99). This one is also a very good contender, especially since it features a water-repellant coating

But if you’re looking to buy a set, I suggest you don’t wait until the very last second. These sets are selling out quickly and there is no guarantee that they’ll still be there later today, but you never know!

Marcelle Canada Promo Code: 40% Off Everything For 4 Days

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 12:11 PM

Marcelle Canada Promo Code: 40% Off Everything For 4 Days

Because you are a woman and International Woman’s Day is coming up, Marcelle is celebrating with 40% off everything on their site with coupon code.

Click here to shop @ Marcelle.com now

  • Coupon Code: WOMEN
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 8th March 2015

With March comes different weather, which also means different needs for your skin. I find I don’t need my thick moisturizer once I can turn off the heat at my house. Similarly, I need more of a stronger cleanser with my skin becoming sweaty with the heat outside.

I’ve actually never tried any of the BB, CC, or DD creams on the market. Now could be the time with this 40% off coupon. Marcelle’s beauty balm cream says that skin will appear lifted. Since I’m almost 40, I would choose the anti-aging cream with SPF, which is regularly $28.95. Adding it to my cart with the coupon code brings this product down to $17.37, which is quite the saving.

Because you’ll want to get your cart up to $50 to get free shipping, keep shopping all of these hot deals and don’t stop at the face cream.

With Mother’s Day coming up, the gift sets are a fantastic deal for Mom. The revival pro sculpt gift set has a value of $103.80 and sells for $53.95. Add it to your cart with the coupon code and the gift set comes down to $32.87. The cream alone costs more than this, so this is a seriously fantastic deal.

I actually might get the new-age precision gift set for myself. I’ve tried the makeup remover before and was quite impressed with it. This set is regularly $49.95 with a $90.18 value in products. Your final total for this set comes down to $29.97. If I just wanted the makeup remover on its own, it sells for $14.95, but with coupon will come down to $7.47, which is fantastic. What’s also fantastic are the reviews for this product:

You only need a small amount and makeup instantly comes off. I have sensitive eyes and this formula doesn’t bother them at all!

Sears Canada: Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juicer Was $90 | Now $60 + Shipping

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 11:39 AM

Sears Canada: Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juicer Was $90 | Now $60 + Shipping

How are your new year’s resolutions going? Feel like you need a little bit of tweak? I know that I need something more to get my fitness and nutrition goals on track. Juicing is one way to get nutrients into your body in such an easy and not to mention, delicious way. Sears has a fantastic deal on the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth juice extractor right now. Regularly $89.99, it is on sale for $59.99. I actually found the regular price higher at competitor stores, so that makes this deal super!

This big mouth juicer doesn’t have a big mouth because it tells you pick up your socks and find a job. It has a big mouth that is an extra large chute for adding fruits and vegetables that don’t have to be chopped into tiny pieces to be juiced. You can add 3″ pieces into the chute, which means less work for you.

I think the biggest complain I have about my juicer is that it is so much work to clean up, but this one has a cleaning brush for easy removal of pulp and an easy to detach pulp container. Another way to keep clean up easier is to place a plastic bag (or paper) inside of the pulp container. That way you can just remove it and chuck it.

While we’re at it, if you think juicing is too expensive, even with this deal from Sears, check out Claire’s article on how to save money while juicing.

Need to hear about ways to use your juicer from those who know? This video is extremely informative:

Of course, I had to check to see if this was the best deal out there and it is. Best Buy sells it for $89.99. So does Future Shop. Amazon has it on for $99.99. Even Hudson’s Bay has a sale on today on all Hamilton Beach appliances, but its sale price of $74.99 is far more expensive than Sears price.

Gotta love reviews like this, and there are lots like it:

I’ve had this juicer for about 2 weeks, and have made various fruit and veggie juices, and now (today) almond milk. I am seriously impressed by this juicer, particularly at this price point (and even more so if you can get it on sale!) — I think I would be equally impressed with it if it had been twice its retail price.

Shipping is free on a $99 spend at Sears, otherwise you are paying a $7.95 shipping fee. Even with the fee on top, this is still a deal that beats the other stores. But, do yourself a favour and get your total up past $100 and save yourself that fee.

Amazon Canada: Up To 50% Off Schleich Toy Figures

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 11:02 AM

Amazon Canada: Up To 50% Off Schleich Toy Figures

If you’ve got a child who loves to play pretend with figures, you’ve no doubt heard of Schleich. This premium brands makes some amazing figures of animals, dinosaurs, popular characters, knights and more. The reason I know is because I have a ton of them. The sad part is that I’ve bought at specialty toy stores and wanted to cry paying $5 for one tiny pig that my son insisted on having. Today I can get stocked up at Amazon, with up to 50% off these figures.

Kids (and adults) love the realistic look of these figures. I love having different animal figures for my kids to play with, as it teaches them about the animals and these figures are great for all ages, from toddler to teen. I think these would be amazing for an Easter hunt, rather than candy. They are easy to hide as they aren’t large, but it is a quality toy that kids would get excited finding.

There are too many figures on sale here to mention the prices, but I’ll let you know some of my favourites. If you’ve got a horse lover in the family, you won’t want to miss the recreational rider. Regularly $24.99, you can get this hand painted girl on a horse for only $15.95. Learning Toys sells this one for $22.99 and is out of stock.

If dinosaurs are your kid’s thing, Tyrannosaurus Rex would be a great addition to their toys. This one is regularly $29.99 and now $16.51, selling for about $9 more at Learning Toys.

Every little girl needs a magical unicorn in her toy basket and this female elf on a unicorn is sure to delight. Regularly $24.99, it is now $14.94. Again, Learning Toys sells it for about $5 more. This one is also part of a collectible series, if that’s what you are into.

We have a few of the Schleich knights and this Dragon Knight action figure on horse is very similar to one we have had for years that still gets played with often. Regulary $23.99 and now $14.38, you’ll want to pick this up at this price.

I didn’t realize that all of the figures are hand-painted and I think that is super cool. It makes the price more than worth it. Shipping is free at Amazon when you spend $25, so you’ll want to pick up a few figures to get your total to that amount and avoid extra costs.

Are you looking for a sweet pair of baby shoes for spring? These white shiny Mary Janes will be perfect on your baby for any spring party, Easter event or to attend a wedding.

Robeez shoes have been around the baby circle for a while as a top product. Their soft bottomed shoes have been dubbed perfect for babies, pre-walkers and toddlers.

A few other lesser known boutiques have these shoes online. I found that at the boutiques sizing is very limited, the price point is hitting around $25-$30 and you will pay for shipping.

Little Tikes Cozy Coupes From $56.87 – Choice Of 4 (Amazon, Toys R Us, Walmart)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 6:45 AM

Little Tikes Cozy Coupes From $56.87 – Choice Of 4 (Amazon, Toys R Us, Walmart)

The Little Tikes Cozy Coupes are a seriously popular kid’s item, and the play vehicle is recognised all over the world. However, it’s an item that rarely goes on special offer and it’s hard to find a bargain on it. The car usually retails for between $70 to $90… but I’ve found a few models with prices starting at only $56.87 just now!

Firstly, you can get the girl’s Little Tikes Princess Cozy Coupe (30th Anniversary) for only $59.99 @ Amazon Canada. It’s pictured above, on the left.

The above coupe would come with free super saver shipping! And as you can see, it’s pink and pale blue instead of the commonly seen red and yellow model.

Secondly, using the Toys R Us coupon code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY which gives $10 off $40, you can get the Little Tikes – Princess Cozy Coupe with Glitter, also for only $59.99. It’s pictured above, the second one across.

As for shipping on this item, the usual $20 Toys R Us shipping credit doesn’t seem to apply on this one. Instead, they’ve got a $10 shipping credit, so anything above that $10 mark, you’d have to pay. Pop it in your cart and see… I did a test order and shipping was another $4.62 which was very reasonable.

Thirdly, there’s the Little Tikes Patrol Cozy Coupe which is currently only $57.87 with free shipping from Walmart Canada.

This is a police car styling, already pimped out. It’s pictured above, the third item across.

Finally, we’ve got the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Off Roader which is $56.87 @ Walmart.ca.

The above item should come with free shipping to most areas too. It’s pictured at the top right.

Now, I understand that both the above deals are not a super massive saving, but it’s a good discount on a popular item which rarely goes on sale.

Pimp Your Ride!

If you’re interested in buying the Little Tikes Cozy Coupes above and then pimping them out to be more unique and fun, there are lots of ways you can do this. Check out this gallery of the various ways that people have decorated their Little Tikes Cozy Coupes (To use the gallery, click on one image then you can navigate through more with the arrow at the bottom left of the image).

My favourite is the Batmobile, through the Frozen Elsa-mobile comes in a close second. How about you? Which is your favourite Cozy Coupe makeover?

5 Cheap Strategies To Curb Kid Clutter

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 8:00 PM

5 Cheap Strategies To Curb Kid Clutter

If you have a kid or three, you may be experiencing a bit of toy and kid clutter around the house. I thought I had just cleaned out the toys before the holidays, yet every few days it looks like hurricane kid hit my living room. When our home gets so crazy we cannot see the floor, it means we lose items like hats, toys, books and that camera cable I meant to put away. We end up replacing items that are already in our house. Items also tend to become broken, which can add up to big bucks in replacements. Use some of these strategies and you too will stop wasting money on replacement items.

Bins, Bins, Bins!

Decorative bins and boxes are your best friend when trying to curb clutter. Bins are great for toys, and can be used for a variety of kid items. The secret to bin storage is keeping the categories broad so toys can be picked up quickly when playtime is over. My dear mother thought she would simplify my Barbie dolls when I was a kid, by placing similar accessory items in plastic bags. I found it such a hassle to sort each accessory type into the bags that I stopped playing with the dolls.  The alternative of leaving them in a pile on the floor was not an option with my mother (love you mom!). I know my parents spent a fair amount of money gifting me Barbie dolls they thought I would enjoy.

In contrast, one of the bins for my daughter’s toys we have simply named “stuff to take care of baby dolls.” In the bin, you would find a random assortment of clothes, bibs, play diapers and anything else that is used to take care of baby dolls.  I find that by keeping the bin categories broader, my daughter finds new ways to use them together and we can find them. You can pick up inexpensive bins at the dollar store or another discount store to help you get started on the cheap.

Utilize Under The Bed Storage

5 Cheap Strategies To Curb Kid Clutter

Under the bed storage is some of the least utilized space from speaking to friends. Buy a couple of slim containers such as this GIMSE bin from IKEA for $12.99 to take full advantage of this space. Under the bed is where I store extra clothing I have purchased on discount, but is currently too big for my child. Stashing these clothes under the bed in a slim but long bin helps me to see quickly what I have already purchased for the coming season. This also helps keep me from over purchasing clothing, as I have limited the amount of space for storage. By keeping everything together, I can keep the bins accessible but still slide it out of the way quickly. This storage space could also be used for extra linens, towels, storage for kids crafts to be saved and more.

Store Toys Up The Door

Use over the door shoe holders, such as this Whitmor version on Amazon.ca, as a cheap inexpensive toy storage. This type of storage is particularly great for small toys such as cars, action figures, small stuffed animals and Barbie type dolls. Check out this post from Organize Your Stuff Now for a great example of small action figures in a shoe holder. Eva here at Bargainmoose even mentioned she has used one of these shoe storage containers to keep the whole families mitts and hats in one place.

I like using clear plastic versions specifically for toys that have many small parts so my kid can find the accessory they are looking for.  It is much better to have those tiny toys find their way back to the back of the door then to destroy your vacuum.  It also means less times you spend replacing  a specific Minnie Mouse or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle that has been lost… somewhere….

Create A Drop Spot Near The Front Door

5 Cheap Strategies To Curb Kid Clutter

A drop spot can hold a variety of items from your car keys, your purse, your kid’s book bags and the cookies you promised to bring in for that potluck. Creating a drop spot right by the front door ensures you will have everything together in one place. You will also spend less money replacing items on the go that you forgot at home. A simple small table or a few hooks by the door completes your space. DIY On The Cheap has a great basic example that includes a bench, some hooks and a basket for shoes. If you are handy with tools, they also give plans to build a the bench featured. Once you have your set-up, simply drop anything you need in the drop spot the night before or in the morning as you are preparing for the day. Save the last minute trip to the store for the replacement snack and use your drop spot to remember everything you need.

Toy Rotation

Extend the interest in your kid’s toys by rotating a few in and out of the play space. First find a small storage space that is somewhat hidden away from the kids such as a closet or a corner of the basement. Every few months pack up some of the toys from the bottom of the toy box and place them in your storage space. At the same time, you can rotate in a few new toys into the play space to keep things interesting. Fewer toys out all at once means less overall toy clutter.

Bargainmoosers, what do you do to curb the kid clutter?

Baskin Robbins Printables: BOGO 50% Off Sharknado Ice Cream & $3 Off Holiday Cakes

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Baskin Robbins Printables: BOGO 50% Off Sharknado Ice Cream & $3 Off Holiday  Cakes

Mmmm ice cream… the picture above is definitely enticing you to run to the nearest Baskin Robbins to get some right? I’m just kidding, but below are two printable coupons: the first for a “buy one, get one 50% off” deal on Sharknado ice cream and the second for a $3 discount on holiday cakes.

When I get started on going out for ice cream, I can’t stop going and start craving it on a near daily basis. So any discount is definitely very welcomed, especially on the Sharknado ice cream.

It’s currently Baskin Robbins’ flavour of the month and it features salted caramel, chocolate covered potato chips, chocolate-covered pretzels and chocolate-coated candy pieces — that’s a whole lot of of chocolate-covered munchies, all combining into a very flavourful mix.

Have you tried the new chocolate-covered Lays yet? They’re quite scrumptious, so if you have tried it, then you can just imagine how tasty this new ice cream is as well. In fact, it has a 3.5/5 rating on Baskin Robbins’ site.

In fact, here’s what Ian Ziering, star of the movie “Sharknado”, had to say about this ice cream on the Burbank News:

“It’s a kitchen sink of snacks,” Ziering said, riffing from behind the counter. “It’s a Snacknado.”

The other coupon is for a $3 off a holiday cake. Easter is coming up, so if you’re looking to get a cake for the little ones, then this would be a great printable coupon to take advantage of, but it could also be great for birthdays. The Baskin Robbins’ printable coupon doesn’t specify if there are any exclusions with regards to the kind of holiday cake that you can get but my assumption is that nearly any cake should be good to save on. The only condition is that it must be over $25.

Best Buy: Apple iPad Mini 2 w/ Cellular – 64GB Was $600 | Now $480

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 4:53 PM

Best Buy: Apple iPad Mini 2 w/ Cellular   64GB Was $600 | Now $480

Best Buy (and Future Shop) has discounted the Apple iPad mini 2 – 64GB – Wi-Fi/3G/4G from $599.99 down to $479.99 with free shipping. This is the ‘with cellular’ version and includes 64GB of space.

If you do not need the latest model of iPad Mini (the mini 3), then this is an excellent offer. I price compared with other companies to ensure this was a good deal. At Apple Canada, the iPad mini 2 (32 GB) with cellular retails for $519. Note that Apple Canada no longer sells the larger memory version, which Best Buy has. Thus, at Apple you would pay more for a smaller unit. Chapters Canada and Staples Canada also have the 32GB model for $519. The only place i found the 64GB iPad 2 with cellular is at Walmart. At Walmart, this unit costs $658.

Future Shop is the sister store of Best Buy, so their prices currently match. If the Apple iPad Mini 2 goes out of stock at Best Buy, just hop over to Future Shop to see if there are any left there. Currently, Best Buy has several special offers that you can combine with the Apple iPad Mini 2 with cellular. Some of these are in store only promotions and some of these are available online.

Online

  • Save $20 on Microsoft Office with your purchase of the iPad Mini 2
  • Save $20 on a Logitech Keyfolio with your purchase of the iPad Mini 2 – Retails $89.99 | Your price $69.99

In Store

  • Pay $0 upfront (save $480) on this iPad with TELUS Easy Tablet.
  • Receive a bonus $50 gift card when you activate this iPad in-store with TELUS Easy Tablet

For in store deals, you can reserve online today for same day pick up at your local store.

The Microsoft deal is nice to combine with this sale. Microsoft Office 365 starts at $69.99 for the personal version. With this deal, you would receive Microsoft Office for just $49.99. Other versions are a bit more expensive.

I am a fan of Apple products overall, and I think this is one good deal on a new Apple tablet. While I cannot say much about the TELUS Easy Tablet offer, I would personally look into it if I were buying this tablet. A bonus $50 gift card is nothing to sniff at. I am also curious how they can give you the phone up front free; I am assuming the $480 cost goes on a two-year tab.

Hudson’s Bay: Up to 65% Off Mikasa Glassware

Hudsons Bay: Up to 65% Off Mikasa Glassware

Hudson’s Bay currently has wine goblets, flute glasses, and other beverage glasses on sale for up to 65% off.

The clearance section is ripe with excellent deals on glassware. If you are looking for a pre-made set, then try out the Mikasa Ridgefield Smoke Goblet Set of 4 or the Ridgefield Smoke Wine Glass Set of 4 that are on sale from $90 down to $36 per set. The smoked glass really gives this glassware a distinct look. While these glasses may not match with all dishes, you may find they look smashing with stoneware in deeper colours.

Sometimes a set of four just will not do when six will be dining together. Mikasa also offers sets of six glasses for every occasion that will not break the piggy bank. The Alexandra Red Wine Glasses Set Of 6 were $80 and are now $29.99. These glasses are perfectly shaped for that standard accompaniment to red meat: red wine. Shaped slightly different (though hard to see), this Alexandra White Wine Glasses Set of 6 from Mikasa is also on sale from $80 down to $29.99.

Now, I am not a wine drinker, but I do love a glass of bubbly every now and then. The Alexandra Flute Glasses Set of 6 would be perfect for champagne or even morning mimosas with your lover. Originally $80, they are on sale for $29.99.

Do you already have a set of fancy glasses but one has broken or you need to add to your set for a special event (or an ever-expanding family)? This sale also includes single glasses for many popular sets. I own two Love Story Iced Beverage glasses from Mikasa. They match my china set. However, I only bought two glasses originally and I would prefer four. Originally $35, the love story glasses are on sale for $14 each.

For more of a tumbler style glass, the D Amore New Shape Flame Double Old Fashion will work well. Drop in a bit of brandy and a couple ice-cubes for the perfect evening drink. These glasses can also be used for water (what I would use them for), liqueur, and other hard alcohols. Originally $45, this glass is on sale for $18. If you want a different pattern, then pick up the Arctic Lights Hiball on sale for the same price.

Hudson’s Bay Canada offers free shipping on orders of $99 or more or on orders of $49 for HBC cardholders. Orders under the free shipping minimums start at $5.95 (for under $50) for shipping and go up from there.

Walmart: T-Fal Start Up Cookware Set Only $60 & Free Shipping

Walmart: T Fal Start Up Cookware Set Only $60 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada has rolled back the price on this T-Fal eight-piece cookware set. Previously $69, the cookware set is on sale for $59.97 with free shipping.

While Walmart’s previous price was $69, I was shocked to see a similar cookware set at Shop.ca for $134.99. That is even a sale price according to Shop.ca as they list the suggested retail price at $179.99. While the two sets are not exactly the same, they are both start-up sets with eight-pieces of cookware.

Now, the picture on Walmart’s site is inaccurate! The website shows an 11-piece set whereas this is an eight-piece set. I read some of the questions and answers where a buyer points this out and asks what is exactly in the 8-piece set. You will receive a:

  • Five quart dutch oven + lid
  • Three quart pot + lid
  • Two quart pot + lid
  • Two fry pans

If you work out the price per piece, you would only be paying around $7.50 per piece from this set. I think this is an especially good offer for anyone on a tight budget or who has moved out on their own. Reviewers are quite pleased with the set as well. They like how it covers all their basic needs, is over safe (up to 350 F), and is inexpensive. As one reviewer said:

Great set! It is worth the price. You really don’t need one of the $200 sets, this one does the trick!

Another reviewer said the set does not quite have everything they want, but it is great to start out with:

I recently moved to my own place and needed pots and pans. Well, the T-Fal set fulfills my most urgent needs. It doesn’t have all the items I needed (I ideally wanted a large skillet with lid) but for the price, it’s a very good deal. Quality is excellent and I’ll definitely be buying again from T-Fal.

I often look at pots and pans sets because they are a basic for every household. This is the cheapest ‘complete’ set I have ever seen. While I am not a fan of the coating T-Fal uses on their pots and pans, I will admit that nothing can cook an egg like a T-Fal frying pan.

This is a no-risk deal as you can easily return the product in store if you are not satisfied.

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

The Evil Within was just released in October, so this deal is on a fairly new game. Originally $66.49, it is on sale for just $22.60 CAN at Steam Powered.

It is pretty hard to compare prices on digital downloads with their physical equals. However, you are getting the same game – just for a different console. I located some PC versions at local stores to price compare with:

  • $59.95 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $59.95 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $34.99 + $4.99 Shipping @ Amazon.ca (marketplace)
  • $69.99 @ EB Games
  • $69.96 @ Walmart Canada

As you can see, Steam Powered has the best price for the PC version of this game. Even for console versions, the lowest I have seen the game was $30 in this sale Margarita blogged about a bit ago.

This game is pretty scary. If you are not into gore, horror, and mass murder – then you might want to pick another game. As one critic on Metascore said:

The Evil Within has achieved something that not many games have lately: It scared me. Thanks for Mikami-san!

I am not into games that scare me so I have not even watched the trailer for this game. I do know that Detective Sebastian Castellanos is investigating some horrific murders when things go from bad to worse. He witnesses the slaughter of his fellow officers, gets knocked unconscious, and wakes up immersed in a world of hideous creatures and the dead. This is not a game to play before bedtime kiddies!

Now, there is a lot of people who love the game and those who hate it. You must be into psychological horror to enjoy this game. Also, many reviews for the game came out pre-patch. This patch fixed some of the major complaints including black borders to make it feel ‘cinematic’ and some issues with awards not coming through if you were in different modes.

Now, most reviewers will lay out the pros and the cons. One reviewer said:

It is very heavily action focussed which depending on your tastes can be good or bad. Stealth is present, but feels shoehorned in and can sometimes be unreliable. The gunplay feels satisfying and can be quite tense when missing a headshot with low ammo, especially on the harder difficulties.

Many reviewers also say that the storyline is confusing but as you progress in the game it becomes clearer. Now, if this game is not your cup of tea, Resident Evil 5 is also on sale from $19.99 down to $6.80.
