4 Tips to Save Money on Alcohol

4 Tips to Save Money on Alcohol

Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not talking about saving money on alcohol when one is drinking on a regular basis, or at-risk drinking, or problem drinking where addiction might be a concern.  I’m talking about saving money on alcohol when you are spending time chatting over drinks with friends, or saving money when you are out for dinner with your friends, saving money when you are headed out for a night on the town at the local hip bar, or even saving money on the bottle of wine you share at the dinner party you host.

Here are a few tips on how to save money on alcohol:

Have People Over at Your Place Instead

According to Huffington Post, drinking alcohol is something we all waste money on mindlessly.  The average person spends $75 a week on alcohol, which equates to over $3500 a year.  Huffington Post suggests that there are ways to save, including having people over at your place and sharing a bottle of wine.

Instead of paying $10-12 for a glass of wine or $40-60 for a bottle of wine, grab a nice bottle of wine for $25 and share it at home with your friends.  The fact of the matter is, when you drink alcohol in a restaurant, you are paying at least 2-3.5 times the cost of the wine.  To put it into perspective, a nice bottle of white wine would cost $25, but at a restaurant, you will be paying $50 to $85 for the same bottle of wine.  Globe and Mail states that the mark-up in the wine covers the beautiful linen on the table, the cost to the restaurant to store the wine, and the cost of the server to serve the wine, of course.  Nevertheless, the markup is very very high on something you can enjoy for much less.

Opt for Happy Hour

If you would like to spend some rest and relaxation time with your friends over drinks (and are okay with the high markup for alcohol), there are a whole list of of options available.  Instead of meeting after dinner, why not meet before dinner?  Fabulously Frugal has a great list of happy hour meals before 6pm in Vancouver.  I’m sure if you google “happy hour + your city” you should be able to see a list of happy hour establishments that were recently confirmed.  The list is also great to narrow the eating choices available when you as a group can’t decide where to go.

Pick a More Wallet Friendly Wine

Brokepedia suggests there are certain wine regions where the wine is not as expensive compared to other regions. She found this out from a food blogger who asked the opinion of 14 sommeliers.  These budget friendly regions are the following:

  • Greece
  • Southwest France
  • New Zealand
  • Loire Valley, France
  • Austria
  • Portugal

Personally I am a big fan of Malbec wines and I find wine from Mendoza, Argentina to be very rewarding for my wallet.  However, I’m by no means a wine expert!

Stock Up in the States

According to the Canada Border Services Agency, you are allowed to bring back 1.5L of wine (which is 2 bottles of wine) when you are out of Canada for 48 hours or more (anywhere from 48 hours to 7 days, or more if even!).  Every time I come back from a trip or if I’ve gone to the United States I make it a habit to bring back the maximum allowed alcohol with me.  Wine is much more economical in the United States because of the high taxes in Canada.

Even better, Popsugar recommends that you stock up in Costco (Costco in the States of course) because the wine is decent and it is very decently priced as well.  Trader Joe’s wine is also very reasonable and personally and I like it (yes, the Two Buck Chuck)!

Just a friendly reminder that no matter where you enjoying alcohol, please remember to drink responsibly!

Bargainmoosers, how do you save money on alcohol when hosting or dining out?

Knitters! Get Free Minion Hat & Toy Knitting Patterns Here

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Knitters! Get Free Minion Hat & Toy Knitting Patterns Here

If you’re a dab hand with a ball of wool and a couple of needles, you might want to try your hand at this – it’s a free knitting pattern for making minion toys and hats!

As you can see from the image above, this is a knitting pattern which enables you to knit the following items:

  • 1 minion hat
  • 1 minion stuffed toy

They look very cool! My daughter would love these.

While Despicable Me was an excellent movie in and of itself, the Minions seemed to be a character set that was actually more popular than the actual movie! I’ve seen minion merchandise all over the place, and the memes and funny images all over Facebook too. They’ve even got their own movie! I’ll probably have to go to the cinema to see that one… I mean I’ll probably have to take my daughter to the cinema to see that one. Knitters! Get Free Minion Hat & Toy Knitting Patterns Here

I really wish I had the patience for knitting again. I was quite adept at it when I was a child, but it fell off the radar. I tried to rekindle my hobby a few years back, thinking that I could sit and watch TV while knitting. But I found that I had to concentrate immensely on what I was doing… so if I was trying to watch something on TV at the same time, it just wasn’t possible for my brain to follow the plot too. Never mind the fact that the knitted squares that I was making were lop-sided and wonky…!

How about you? Are you a knitter? Will you use this pattern?

Suzy Shier Canada: 40% Off Entire Store Today Only

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Suzy Shier Canada: 40% Off Entire Store Today Only

Suzy Shier’s got a hot sale on today with 40% off the entire store, although it doesn’t include the sale section, where items are already up to 50% off.

Suzy Shier used to be one of my favourite stores and I’m not sure why I haven’t shopped there lately. We don’t often blog about them, but with their sale on today only and in store from just 5pm to 9pm, I thought I’d see what they have available to spruce up my wardrobe.

Checking into the new arrivals section is the best way to be as fashion forward as possible, and with a 40% discount on top.

Most women love having nice dresses for summer, for lounging, picnics, BBQs and more. Dresses are so versatile that you can be dressed up and dressed down at the same time. This variegated striped maxi dress is perfect! I love that it is longer in the back and just below the knee in the front because I always seem to trip over the maxi dresses that are down to my ankle in the front. Plus, I like showing off a bit of leg without wearing a short dress all the time. Regularly $36, once you add this dress to your cart, you’ll see your discount and pay only $21.60 for this dress. I thought the $36 price point was already reasonable so scoring this dress for just over $20 is very sweet indeed.

For the curvy Suzy woman, they have a great selection of summer dresses as well. This tribal print dress comes in sizes 1x, 2x and 3x and is very pretty with an above the knee style. I find this style of dress also very flattering. Regularly $46, it is now only $27.60. Again, another sweet find.

I love checking out store’s athletic wear section and Suzy has quite a stocked one. I can’t get enough athletic capri leggings and these ones are only $30 regularly. After discount, that price drops down to $18! You can get quite a few pairs for this price.

Shipping is free on orders over $100, so fill up your cart with these hot deals. What’s even more awesome is that this price is calculated on the regular price of the items, not the sale price. So once your cart adds up to $100 before discount, you’ll get free shipping! Even though my cart for these three items adds up to $67, because the before discount cost was $112, I got free shipping.

Canadian Freebie: The Jungle Book Story Reading (iPad/iPhone)

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Canadian Freebie: The Jungle Book Story Reading (iPad/iPhone)

The Disney movie The Jungle Book was an extremely popular movie back in the day, but its appeal has also extended down the ages. It’s still quite a timeless movie and still loved by kids of all ages, including me! Just now over on the Apple app store, there’s an app which you can download – it’s a lovely retelling of the movie, in illustrated ebook form. And what’s even nicer, is that it’s free!

The “The Jungle Book – Story reading for Kids” will be free on both iPad and iPhone, only for those of us on iOS. Sorry Androiders, this one’s not for you! The app store says that this app is free for a limited time, but I have no information when that is due to expire or what price the app will increase to, after that point. If you want it, download it right now.

This customer review sums up the positive points about this free book app:

Great classic book for kids. No ads, no in-app purchases.

That’s ideal. I really don’t love my five year old seeing extra buttons to buy other features or additional books, and wondering why we cannot just click it and get it. She doesn’t quite understand the foibles of micro-transactions quite yet!

I’ve just downloaded it and will be reading it with my daughter later today.

I just checked IMDB for the release date of The Jungle Book movie, and it was first released in 1967 and I was shocked, as was my fellow Mooser, Kristy! I didn’t realise it was soooo long ago – that’s nearly 50 years ago. I’m quite amazed how popular that this movie still is.

I’ve got The Jungle Book soundtrack on CD and it’s regularly played in my car, for the kids when we are travelling somewhere. We’re all fluent in, “I wanna be like you-hoo-hoo,” and, “The Bare Necessities.” Sometimes I even sing it when the kids aren’t in the car with me…

Is The Jungle Book an old favourite of yours too? Will you download this app for your wee ones to read?

Receive a $50 Gift Card When You Open A Credit Card Account And Spend $250 Or More @ Staples Canada

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Receive a $50 Gift Card When You Open A Credit Card Account And Spend $250 Or More @ Staples Canada

Have you happened to take a look at the Staples Credit Centre? They have a promotion on right now where you can receive a $50 Staples Canada gift card when you open a Staples Credit Card account and make a purchase of $250 or more before June 30th. Students, office workers, and even people who work from home can benefit from a Staples Credit Card, so why not make use of the $50 gift card too?

Business or individuals can reap the benefits of a Staples Credit Card. There are two different account types, and whether you open the business or the individual credit card account, you can still get a $50 gift card when you make your first purchase over $250 on your Staples Credit Card. Take a look at how the two accounts differ and make the best choice for you:

Business Account:

The Staples Credit Card business account is designed for businesses that are trying to be a little more flexible when managing their expenses. With the Business Account Credit Card, there are no annual fees. You can also have additional cards at no extra cost. Choose between paying in full, or carry the balance if you need a little more time. The account statements are also very detailed so you can see when and how you are spending your money.

Personal Account:

This account is probably better for those who are students or even self employed. If you want flexible purchasing power at Staples Canada, the credit card is a great option. There are no annual fees with this card either, and the payment options look to be flexible. You can get your statements online and even manage your account online.

So basically you will have to apply for the Staples credit card you prefer, and then make your transaction to get your $50 Staples Gift Card. There are some technical details, so make sure your purchase abides by those to get your free gift card. Here are the requirements:

  • net transaction of $250 after discounts
  • must be a single transaction
  • excluding any possible shipping fees
  • limit of one gift card per person

Your $50 gift card will be mailed to you two months following the end of this Staples Canada promotion period. That means you will receive your $50 Staples Gift Card around August 30th – just in time for back to school.

Coupon Code for Toys R Us Canada: $10 off $50!

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Coupon Code for Toys R Us Canada: $10 off $50!

I’ve just spotted an ongoing coupon code for Toys R Us Canada which is definitely worth a mention. Place any order of $50 or more and you can use this coupon code to get an instant $10 discount! Here are the details:

Click here to use the Toys R Us coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: CineplexFeb
  • Discount: $10 off $50
  • Expires: 30th September 2015

As you can see, the coupon code is good through September 2015. So if you’re buying anything online at Toys R Us over the next couple of months, be sure to stop by the Toys R Us page on the Bargainmoose coupon section, as we will have the promo code stored in there. Just copy paste it, and away you go.

Canadian Shipping ($49+)

As for shipping from Toys R Us Canada, you have to spend $49 or more to get free shipping (to most locations). Therefore, if you’re only placing an order of $50 to $59, the $10 coupon code would drop your order total to less than the $49 threshold, and you’d have to pay extra for shipping. In cases like that, I would really recommend adding some small filler items to your order to try and get it over the $49 mark.

However, Moosers in the past have complained about the transparency of the shipping costs on the TRU site. The best way to see the true shipping costs is to pop something in your cart, enter your postal code and check the shipping. Do this before you make your final purchasing decision.

Filler Items

If you do need some small items in your cart, consider these:

Philips Sonicare Toothbrush

One deal that caught my eye was this – the Philips Sonicare Easy Clean Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush. It was previously $99.99, it’s now $59.98. But it drops to only $49.98 after the coupon code, plus it’s eligible for free shipping. I added it to my cart and did a test order to Ontario, and the $9 shipping charge was reduced to zero. If you need a new leccy toothbrush, consider that.

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Blacks Coupon Code for a 14 x 24.5 Collage Poster – Only $0.99 & Free Shipping!

A few months back, Blacks had an excellent offer here for a free collage poster as long as you ordered through their app. This was a super deal and it was one of the most popular offers we’ve seen on Bargainmoose. While that offer is now expired, Blacks have released a new offer to celebrate an update of their app. Just now, you can order a 14″x24.5″ collage poster worth $9.99, for only $0.99 as well as free shipping!

Click here to use the Blacks coupon code now

  • Coupon Code: fresh99
  • Discount: $9 off a collage poster
  • Expires: 31st May 2015

Use the above Blacks coupon code when you are placing your order through for a 14″x24.5″ collage poster, through the Blacks iOS app which you can grab from here. The regular cost of the collage poster on there is $9.99, so this is a $9 saving, not to mention free shipping. Blacks Coupon Code for a 14 x 24.5 Collage Poster – Only $0.99 & Free Shipping! Plus, if you order anything else as well, those items will also qualify for free shipping. If you were planning on ordering a few prints or other items from Blacks, this is a good opportunity to take advantage of free shipping.

The previous thread has quite a few comments from Moosers, you may want to read it too. For example, you’ll want to upload the pictures in the order that you want them to appear on your poster. You cannot sort the images once they are uploaded.

If you have a load of photos sitting on your iPhone or iPad like I do, it could be a really good opportunity to throw them all into the Blacks app. You can download the app for free, select the piccies you want to have in your collage poster, then place your order. It shouldn’t take long to do so… and it’s only a dollar to get a great collage full of memories for you to see.

Kristy was telling me that her phone is busting with pictures that she needs to print off… Kristy, get the Blacks app and make a poster for a dollar!

Or here’s another idea – perhaps a Father’s Day gift? Make a poster with lots of pics of the kids or family, and give it to dad/partner/grandad for the big day?

What about you Moosers? Will you make use of this one?

Save 76%! Diamond Jacquard Fit And Flare Dress Was $160 | Now $38.39 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ Banana Republic Canada

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 9:52 AM

Save 76%! Diamond Jacquard Fit And Flare Dress Was $160 | Now $38.39 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ Banana Republic Canada

Banana Republic Canada is having a great sale today, and I found the versatile Diamond Jacquard Fit And Flare Dress at a steal. This dress was $160 and is on sale for $63.99. Use the coupon code BRCNEWYOU to receive an extra 40% off your order, bringing the total down to only $38.39!

We are right in the thick of wedding, graduation and other spring parties. That may mean you find yourself at a few events where you need a cute little dress. You are in luck because I found the perfect versatile dress for you today. The Diamond Jacquard Fit And Flare Dress is beautiful, and should tastefully hug all of your curves in the right way. Dress this cream coloured dress up or down with any colour of accessory. I like to pick a bright spring colour for my shoes and necklace with a dress like this one. This dress has a crew neckline and cap sleeves, giving you a more modest look for those family-friendly backyard parties. The back has an exposed zipper, which is a nice detail. You can grab this dress in the following sizes: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14. There is also a navy version is size 14 only. The navy version was $160, but is $41.99 after the coupon code.

Reviews

Reviews for this dress are all very positive. Customers are loving the fit and the classic style of this dress. A few people mentioned the material is a little thicker, but that should give you a longer season out of this dress with cooler Canadian temperatures. Here is one of many happy reviews:

Love love love this dress. I normally wear a size 8 or 10, purchased 10. I’m 5″5′ 38D and 10 fits so well. This dress is perfect for the office or event. Was on sale so could not pass up. If hesitant… JUST BUY! It’s super cute and shows curves well.

Shipping

I love the shipping policies at Banana Republic. They offer free shipping with all orders over $50. The good news is they use the sale price to calculate the free shipping but do not include the discount from the coupon code. So, because the sale price of this dress is $63.99 and above that $50 threshold, this dress ships for free! You can also combine items from Old Navy Canada and The Gap Canada into your order. Here is an example of my cart showing the free shipping with only this dress.

Save 76%! Diamond Jacquard Fit And Flare Dress Was $160 | Now $38.39 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ Banana Republic Canada

Grab this dress now. I would listen to that reviews and not hesitate. Cute versatile dresses do not stick around at this price for long. I am sure this will become a staple in your closet!

Kings of Leon The Collection Box Only $24.99 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Kings of Leon The Collection Box Only $24.99 @ Amazon.ca

Amazon Canada is having some super deals on a few rock music boxed sets. I spotted the Kings of Leon set for only $24.99. This item qualifies for free super saver shipping with a minimum purchase of $25.

Kings of Leon is a favourite among the rock and pop hits. The songs get stuck in your head, and you find yourself singing along for weeks at a time. Put some tunes to your humming with this awesome boxed set.

This set includes five CDs and one DVD. Each CD includes extra tracks that are not previously released on CD. Included are the following albums:

  • Youth and Young Manhood
  • Aha Shake Heartbreak
  • Because Of The Times
  • Only By The Night
  • Come Around Sundown

You will also receive a DVD that features the Kings of Leon’s performance in London, England 2009. You will be able to have this awesome concert experience right from your own home.

When you start price matching this box set across the web, you really start seeing the savings. Over at Walmart.ca, this boxed set costs $62.97. I also found this CD boxed set at Best Buy Canada for $62.99. Best Buy will let you sample some of the tracks from your browser, so click on over for a full preview of this album.

Reviews on Amazon are praising this album for the fantastic music. Several reviewers talk about how they listen to these albums multiple times, and how some of the songs are catchy right away and other songs you find yourself hooked a week later. This band also experiments with their sound, and listeners love it.

If you are looking for other cool music to fill out your cart, Amazon.ca has discounted a few other boxed CD sets today. Bruce Springsteen fans will be happy to see the Born To Run 30th Anniversary 3 disc set on sale for only $26.99. This same set at Walmart.ca will cost you $64.97, so you are saving quite a bit. This set is a re-mastered version of Springsteen’s earlier work including four hours of footage of their London show. Featured songs include “Thunder Road,” “Kitty’s Back,” and a fantastic rendition of “Saint in the City.”

I also like the Best of My Lives Boxed Set by Billy Joel selling today for $26.99. Pick this same set up at Best Buy.ca and you will drop $72.99. This is a five disc set including four CDs chock full of classic hits and a DVD that showcases five hours of music, previously unreleased tunes and even a few covers. You want to check out this album.

If you need a filler for free shipping on the Kings of Leon album, check out the Jurassic Dinosaurs Sticker Activity Book. This fun sticker book is only $2. This would be a great little project for the kids, dad or me! I have another sticker book made by this same company, and they are fun little books.

These fab music sales are only good today, so snap up your favourites now. This is a great potential Father’s Day gift. Both my husband and my dad would find music they enjoyed among these boxed sets.

Shoppers Drug Mart: Seniors Save 20% + Get A $10 Gift Card When You Spend $50 TODAY Only

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Shoppers Drug Mart: Seniors Save 20% + Get A $10 Gift Card When You Spend $50 TODAY Only

Today is Seniors’ Bonus Day at Shoppers Drug Mart Canada. That means that seniors can save 20% when they pay and present their Shoppers Optimum Card on regular priced merchandise. Seniors will also receive a $10 Shoppers Drug Mart Bonus Card when they spend $50 or more.

This is your chance to bring mom, dad, or grandma (if they are old enough) to your local Shoppers Drug Mart Canada location to reap the benefits of this Seniors’ Bonus Day. The last time that we blogged about Shoppers Drug Mart’s Seniors’ Day was back in January. Margarita told us all about the offer, and now we have the discounts again.

While my first thought was to use this 20% discount towards a new gaming console, I was disappointed to read that the maximum discount available is $50. Nonetheless, $50 off a console would be better than nothing. Not to mention you will get a $10 Shoppers Drug Mart Bonus Card when you spend at least $50. Use that $10 card towards your next purchase for your new gaming system. This gift card can be redeemed up until June 18th. Unfortunately, this promotion is limited to one card per person.

If you are not a gamer, it is still so easy to spend $50 or more at Shoppers Drug Mart Canada. I was in there to other day and spent almost $250 – to bad I am not a senior. I went in with the intention of grabbing milk and bread and ended up doing almost my entire grocery shopping and more while I was browsing. I even grabbed some new makeup, since they say to replace eye makeup every few months. I am a sucker for GOSH brand makeup, which Shoppers Drug Mart Carries.

The regular exclusions apply to this promotion. That means you cannot apply the discounts to your prescriptions, codeine products, lottery tickets, prepaid cards of any kind, and more. Now the real question, how old is old enough? Many stores have different opinions on how old you must be to qualify for seniors’ discounts. At Shoppers Drug Mart Canada, you must be at least 55 to receive this discount. Don’t forget your Optimum card!

Amazon Canada: Anker A7908 Portable Bluetooth Speaker 4.0 – Just $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 27, 2015 at 9:50 PM

Amazon Canada: Anker A7908 Portable Bluetooth Speaker 4.0   Just $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Looking to blast music this summer? Then I suggest you hurry to get the Anker A7908 portable Bluetooth 4.0 speaker at Amazon for just $39.99 and free shipping.

Back in November, Avigayil blogged about the Anker 13000 mAh portable battery, which was, and still is by the way, down to $35.99. At the time, I took advantage of the low price to grab one for my hubby and a couple of months later, even bought one for myself and a friend. Despite having never heard of Anker before, I fell in love with their portable battery and would definitely buy any of their products without much thought because just from the battery only, I can tell that they’re durable without compromising on the performance.

In this case, the speaker actually has spectacular reviews on Amazon.ca with a general consensus of 4.5/5 stars based on 228 customer reviews. Not only were users impressive with the general durability of this speaker but also, most importantly with the sound. In fact, in their review of this speaker, WPS News had this final verdict to give on it:

It beats its rivals on several fronts, including sound clarity and definition, connection range, price and customer service, the last of which is not so easy to find for gadgets in this price range

Only the black one is down to $39.99 but if you want it in either white or blue, then you can get it for $10 more at $49.99. Price comparing proved slightly challenging as not only does Amazon.ca not list an original retail price but it’s not being sold anywhere else. I did, however, find it on Amazon.com on sale for $39.99, down from an original price of $79.99. That comes up to a 50% discount, which is definitely pretty awesome!

As for the specs, the Anker A7908 portable speaker features up to 20 hours of playtime with a rechargeable battery, a connection range of up to 33 feet and and is Bluetooth compatible.

Personally, I’ll definitely be grabbing one of these for myself to enjoy music while I sip an iced coffee outside and blog about the next deal. Amazon Canada: Anker A7908 Portable Bluetooth Speaker 4.0   Just $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Free shipping is also another major perk as Amazon automatically ships orders over $25 for free.

Cineplex Canada: Get Two Free Tickets To The Game Of Thrones Season 5 Finale

Game of Thrones fans, keep reading! Cineplex Canada is currently offering you two free admission tickets to see the final two episodes of season 5 on the big screen. Getting your two complimentary tickets is easy, but be sure to follow the directions to find yourself in a theatre stocked full of fellow Game of Throne die-hard fans.

HBO Canada and Cineplex have teamed up to offer Game of Thrones fans an opportunity to watch the final two episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 at a Cineplex theatre. This screening takes place on June 14th, so make sure you have that date open before requesting your tickets. Quantities are limited so you don’t want to take from someone who could view the show. You must also be a Scene member, since you will have to enter your Scene card number when you redeem your free tickets.

To start, fill out the form provided in the link above. You will have to enter your email, name and other simple information like that. Then you will get an email from Cineplex Canada. Mine ended up in my junk mail, so be careful you don’t miss it. Then follow the steps in your email. Here are the steps necessary to receive your two free tickets to see the Game of Thrones Season 5 final two episodes at Cineplex Canada:

  1. Head over to the Cineplex website.
  2. Click where it says “find showtimes”.
  3. Select your city and the date of the performance.
  4. Click on the showtime to get your tickets.
  5. Enter your Scene card number and click the button that says “proceed”. Keep in mind that you will not receive any Scene points, since this is a freebie.
  6. This screen is very important. This is where you will need to enter the first voucher code into the promo code box. Once that has been applied (click “apply”), you can then enter your second voucher code and do the same.
  7. Again, click “proceed”.
  8. Be sure to confirm your details and time.

You can choose to either print your tickets or send them to your mobile device. Either way, remember your booking ID. You can enter the booking ID at one of the ticket kiosks in any Cineplex Canada locations before you head into watch the final two episodes. Quantities are limited, but the expiry date of this offer is unknown.

Get a Free Grab & Go Travel Game With Any $20 Hasbro Game @ Chapters Indigo Canada

Get a Free Grab & Go Travel Game With Any $20 Hasbro Game @ Chapters Indigo Canada

I am always looking for a way to spend a little more family time without electronics. Right now Chapters Indigo Canada has a deal on their Hasbro games. You can snag a free Grab & Go Travel Game with any Hasbro game you purchase that is valued at $19.95 or more.

Grab & Go games are great for many occasions. Whether you are planning on camping, doing a few road trips, or heading to family picnics this summer, Grab and Go games by Hasbro are an excellent source of entertainment to bring along with you. These games were normally $7.95, so that is quite the freebie. The Hasbro Grab and Go games include your family favourites such as:

  • Battleship Grab and Go
  • Connect 4 Grab and Go
  • Trouble Grab and Go
  • Clue Grab and Go

All four of the Hasbro Grab and Go games are still in stock, so have your pick. You will get your free Grab & Go Travel Game with the purchase of any Hasbro game that exceeds $19.95, but most of the games are in that general price range. Hasbro really does have games for all ages. I remember many of these games from when I was a kid. Hungry Hungry Hippos has been a family favourite forever. This game is just $22.95 and will provide your family with hours of humour and fun. Some of the other popular games for kids include Sorry, Monopoly Junior, Guess Who and more.

Chapters Indigo Canada even has a variety of Despicable Me themed games, among other popular themes (Frozen, My Little Pony). The Despicable Me – Trouble for $19.95 is a game that I could easily add to my collection. Those little minions are absolutely adorable and I can’t wait for my family to laugh at this game. The other Despicable Me themed Hasbro games include:

  • Despicable Me – The Game of Life for $24.95
  • Despicable Me – Monopoly for $24.95
  • Despicable Me – Operation for $24.95

Chapters.Indigo.ca offers free shipping on orders over $25, so hopefully your cart total can reach that. Otherwise the shipping fee is based on the weight, size and distance for your purchase.
