Groupon Canada: Apple EarPods With Remote & Microphone Were $30 | Now $18 + Shipping

Groupon Canada: Apple EarPods With Remote & Microphone Were $30 | Now $18 + Shipping

Groupon has an Apple event going on right now where you can get up to 75% off select Apple items. The best deal I found was on the Apple EarPods with remote and microphone that were $29.99 and are now $17.99. The regular price for these are higher I found at other Canadian online retailers.

I actually have these earpods and it was a revelation getting them. I used to put my phone on speaker when I was talking while driving to keep my calls hands-free, but no one could ever hear me. Getting these headphones with microphone made the phone calls crystal clear and kept me safe while driving, or doing anything really.

I also use the headphones with my iPod for running and walking. It says you can also use them on non-Apple devices. You don’t have to worry about using them while working out and sweating as they are resistant to wetness.

These are new headphones, not a refurb with a one year warranty directly from Apple. Shipping is $4.99, which is a bummer, but still makes this deal sweet. Searching for the product number, I found that these are the older set of headphones and stores like Newegg were sold out. The newer version, which looks exactly the same to me sells for $35 at Apple, $39.99 at Best Buy and $35 at Walmart. I can imagine the difference between the older and the newer set would be negligible.

There are a few other Apple items that could pique your interest during this sale from Groupon. There is a refurbished 16GB iPad Air on sale for $399.99. Some of the other items on that page are not Apple products, so don’t be fooled, but I do see some nice deals that are worth taking advantage of. The selfie stick with remote button seems like a sweet deal, with a regular price of $39 and now only $9.99. Over 1,000 have been sold so I think others agree with me!

Graco Fastaction Stroller In Purple Was $229 | Now $83.33 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ Shop.ca

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 9:52 AM

Graco Fastaction Stroller In Purple Was $229 | Now $83.33 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ Shop.ca

Roll down the street in style with the Graco Fastaction Stroller. This is an adorable stroller with a purple design, but has the quality you expect from the name Graco. This stroller originally retailed for $229, and is on sale for $133.33. Use our coupon code MOOSE50OFF125JULY to take off another $50 the total, bringing the price down to $83.33. Free shipping with no minimum finishes off this deal.

When you are shopping for a stroller, it can be overwhelming. There are a million choices and you never know which one is going to work well, fit in your car and go the long haul. The stroller I found today is not an elite stroller, but the price is amazing. If you are on a slim budget or need an extra stroller, such as for Grandma’s house, this is a solid deal. Check out the adorable black and purple design on this stroller. They call the design Minnie Mouse, but it seems unrelated to the famous mouse with the polka dot bow.

The seat back is fully adjustable and there is an extra-large basket underneath for stowing extra baby supplies. The tray in front of the baby has two separate cup holders perfect for sippy cups and snacks that will pivot to let the child in and out. This stroller will also connect with any of the Graco Classic Connect infant car seats, such as the famous Snugride.

The best price I could find on this stroller was at Canada’s Baby store where this stroller is also selling for $133.33, but there is no amazing coupon code to knock the price down further. I found this exact stroller selling at Newegg.ca for $199. Amazon.ca has this stroller selling from a secondary seller for $229. I also looked over at Toys R Us Canada just to make sure I knew how much Graco strollers are retailing for right now. The least expensive Graco brand stroller I could find is $199.99, and it has a generic design.

I think this stroller model is being discontinued. Reviews were tough to find online, though on Amazon.ca there were two positive reviews. Both people mentioned that this was a lightweight stroller and it is well constructed. Graco is known for making solid products that include the essentials. If you are looking for that stroller that glides with a single touch from your pinkie finger and folds up small enough to fit inside your wallet, then this stroller may not be for you. If you need a solid stroller at a low price that is cute and includes the basics, you should pick up this stroller.

Men’s Teva Toachi 2 Sandals Were $110 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Lacordee

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 8:30 AM

Men’s Teva Toachi 2 Sandals Were $110 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Lacordee

For a quality pair of sandals that can keep up with all of your adventures, you need these Men’s Teva Toachi 2 sandals. This particular model of sandals does not have a bigger discount very often. They retail at $110 but you can score a pair now for only $55. Lacordee is also offering free shipping for a limited amount of time. Thanks to Mooser Martin for sharing this hot deal with us!

Lacordee is an outdoor supplier similar to MEC or Live Out There. We have never featured them on Bargainmoose before, but today they have a stellar deal on these Men’s Teva sandals. Normally their killer deals have a limited sizing available, but today we are in luck.

These Teva sandals are the sandals that will travel with you anywhere. The cushioned fully adjustable straps ensure you have a perfect fit, which make them an especially good choice for those who have trouble finding quality sandals that fit. The bottom of the shoe has lots of extra traction. Teva sandals are perfect if you like water adventures such as boating, kayaking and fishing. Included is a thick rubber sole that has Microban added to help reduce bacteria and smelly odors and makes them a good choice for light hiking and camping. That Microban stuff really works on cutting down on odors, I have owned several pair of Teva sandals and they are always less smelly then my other sporty sandals. Teva’s also wash down quickly and look good as new afterwards.

When you buy a pair of Teva sandals, you can expect them to last multiple years. My last pair lasted me well over eight years before a replacement was needed. This pair today is available in a black colour called Raven. You can pick them up in the following sizes:

  • 8.5
  • 9.
  • 9.5
  • 10
  • 10.5
  • 11
  • 11.5
  • 12
  • 13

Looking around the web, this price is about as low as you can get for these sandals. Teva has sold this model for multiple years. Live Out There has discounted these sandals down to $76.99. You could pick up these sandals at Mec.ca for $99. Shoeme.ca is selling these shoes for $110. Teva Canada is also charging full retail value at $110.

Reviews are looking great everywhere, everyone seems happy with these sandals. Most places have just a few positive reviews, but on Teva Canada’s website there are over 200 reviews and these sandals still maintain a four and a half out of five rating. Here is one reviewer who sums up just how fantastic these shoes are.

This is an all-around great sandal, with many uses very well built takes the trails, beach, lake and rivers and forest, Saturday fighting the crowds wherever you find yourself. I will be buying another pair the toachi 2. I am 6’7″ and my feet feel great at the end of the day while out for a little adventure.

These shoes are a solid buy. Normally shipping at Lacordee will cost you $6, so the free shipping today will save you that cash. There are a few locations not included in the free shipping promo including northern British Columbia, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Labrador, Newfoundland and Nunavik. For the rest of us I would suggest grabbing a pair of these as a mainstay for the next few summers.

Disney Sofia Royal Castle Was $60 | Now $20 @ Walmart.ca

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Disney Sofia Royal Castle Was $60 | Now $20 @ Walmart.ca

Is your child obsessed with princesses, or more particularly obsessed with Disney’s Princess Sofia? Right now Walmart.ca has their exclusive Disney Sofia Royal Castle on clearance sale from $59.94 down to just $20. You can get free shipping when you spend $50, but there are a couple other options to consider as well.

Disney Princess Sofia must adapt to her new lifestyle as a princess. That adventure included getting used to her lush living arrangements in her castle. Your child can play along with this Walmart Exclusive Disney Sofia Royal Castle. This castle was regularly $60, but is now on clearance for just $20. If I had a daughter, I wouldn’t hesitate to snag this offer. This castle even includes a Disney Sofia doll.

The Disney Sofia Royal Castle is best suited for ages 3 and older but according to the reviews little girls of all ages have enjoyed this castle. If your child is on the  younger side, keep in mind that the castle comes with a few small pieces you may want to hold onto until your daughter is older. The small pieces include cups and that sort of item.

One con with this item is that it is big and will take up a lot of space. Reviews state that it can’t be folded down for more convenient storage either. The product is about 15 inches wide and 17 inches tall. The purple doors are awesome. I wish I had doors of that colour on my house, but my landlord would not be very pleased at all. The rest of the castle includes a lounge, dining area, dance ballroom, bedroom and more. Grab the rest of the Sofia family figures for more enjoyment too.

Now, Walmart.ca offers free shipping on orders over $50 (unless they are over sized). But if you don’t want to spend $50, you can always opt to have your parcel shipped to your closest Canada Post office instead. If you are in a participating area, some Walmart Canada locations have Grab & Go lockers as well. You could have your purchase shipped to your closest Grab & Go locker at Walmart for free too.

Hipstreet Bluetooth Selfie Camera Extension Was $40 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Dell.ca

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Hipstreet Bluetooth Selfie Camera Extension Was $40 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Dell.ca

Today’s deal is in tribute to the selfie culture we are currently cultivating in North America. At Dell Canada, the Hip Street Selfie Camera Extension is on sale from $39.99 down to $24.99 with free shipping!

This accessory is pretty self-explanatory. The ‘camera extension’ is actually a support system for your smartphone connected to a handle. As your phone is now an additional distance away, you can capture better selfies and selfies with more people (or body parts) in them. The device simply movies your phone away from you while still giving you that selfie ‘picture taken from slightly above’ look.

This device will work with most smart phone. You simply put your smart phone in the holder and use the handle to hold the phone farther away from you. This device comes equipped with Bluetooth: that means you do not need to set the timer on your phone before holding away. Instead, you can control the photo taking via the Bluetooth controls in the handle. The software is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones.

This little device is great for self-portraits or photos with a group of friends. The handle is fully adjustable for the perfect angle.

I price compared this device with a few other online retailers. Hipstreet Canada lists the manufacturer’s retail price as $49.99. Grand & Toy (US) lists a price of $32.72 plus a $5 ‘minimum order fee’ for not reaching a $50 order plus whatever shipping charges you would incur. Direct Dial Canada offers the same device for $31 but shipping is also extra. PC Canada did have this selfie extension rod on sale for $26.55 but shipping was extra and they are now sold out. Based on my research, Dell Canada’s price is quite good and the free shipping is a lovely bonus.

I think anyone with a smart phone takes selfies these days. Take a picture of your new haircut, your favourite outfit, your makeup, and more. Selfies are a great way to keep family and friends updated on how you are and what you look like! They can also be a great way to express your artistic side through photo composition, filters, and more. Take better selfies now with the Hipstreet Bluetooth Selfie Camera Extension.

Newegg.ca: 3x ADATA Premier 32GB microSDHC Class 10 Only $30 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Newegg.ca: 3x ADATA Premier 32GB microSDHC Class 10 Only $30 & Free Shipping

Are you looking to expand the memory in your tablet or smart phone? Perhaps you use a DSLR camera that needs a new SD card. Newegg.ca has discounted a bundle of three (3) ADATA Premier 32GB microSDHC cards (class 10) with adapters. Originally $38.97, the bundle is on sale for $29.99 with free shipping.

Most places do not sell these cards in bundles, thus I calculated out the cost per card and compared that price. These cards cost roughly $9.99 each at Newegg Canada. Here is what other online retailers are selling these cards for:

  • $12.99 @ Newegg Canada (individual)
  • $11.99 @ NCIX.com
  • $16.99 @ Canada Computers
  • $16.99 @ Tiger Direct Canada (OOS)
  • $11.05 @ Direct Canada
  • $12.50 @ Amazon Marketplace

The other key difference between Newegg’s price and all the other vendors is shipping. Only Newegg.ca offers free shipping. So while the discount might not seem as substantial given just the cost per microSD card, the lack of free shipping options really makes this a very good deal from Newegg.

These microSD cards are class 10. They offer up to 30MB/s read and 10MB/s write speed. There is a newer version of these cards but the price, as can be expected, is substantially higher.

You might wonder why you need three microSD cards. First of all, many cell phones accept only a microSD card for expanding memory. I know that the Samsung Galaxy III and the Samsung Galaxy IV both use microSD cards for expandable memory. Tablets also tend to use SD cards or microSD cards to expand their memory. My partner has a Dell tablet that can accept only microSD cards to expand the memory to about 4x what the tablet actually comes with.

While I am not aware of any cameras that just take microSD cards, the DSLR cameras usually use standard size SD cards. Happily, this bundle comes with the adapters that allow you to use your microSD card as a standard size SD card. This is useful not only for cameras, but you can also use the adapter in your computer’s SD slot for transferring photos and more. This kind of tech is just standard fair in today’s technological households.

There is a limit of five per customer.

Note: there is an error in the product description. At the very bottom it mentions 16GB cards, but this listing is for 32GB cards. Someone made a mistake!

Hush Puppies: Up to 62% off Shoes & Extra 60% Off Coupon + Free Shipping

You can see how steeply these shoes are discounted and how shipping is also free.

For men, I highly recommend the Zack in tan leather or black leather. This basic dress shoe has a distressed look to give the shoe the appearance of age and ‘vintage’. The tan almost takes on a natural patina due to the distressing. Choose from four sizes. Originally $130, these shoes are also on sale for $49.99. Pay just $20 per pair and receive free shipping. If they have your size in stock, then I recommend buying one of each colour!

There are plenty of incredible shoe deals with this combination: a sale and a 60% off promo code. For women, the ballard line of shoes is a gold mine of good deals. The Winnie Ballard, Winter Ballard, and Wren Ballard were all $140 originally, and are now on sale for $99.99. After coupon code, pay just $39.99 per pair of new sandals.

For a pricier find, these Labarre T-Strap and Labarre Slide_TA are a great buy. Quality shoes like these will last you a long time. While the aesthetic is a bit more ‘out there’, I really like my shoes to represent my personality. Originally $250 each, they are now on sale for $139.99. After coupon code, they come down to $55.99 each.

As I mentioned, there is no shortage of amazing shoe deals in this sale. Find some shoes in your size and start buying! With free shipping, the only additional charge with be taxes.

Amazon.ca: Xbox One LEGO Marvel Super Heroes & LEGO Hobbit Was $20 | Now $15

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Amazon.ca: Xbox One LEGO Marvel Super Heroes & LEGO Hobbit Was $20 | Now $15

We are all big fans of LEGO, and there are few things better than making your childhood game come alive on the television screen. Kids love LEGO movies, and they enjoy LEGO video games as well: small kids and big kids alike. Right now, Amazon Canada has discounted LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for Xbox One from $19.99 down to $14.99. I am excited about your second option for the Xbox One: LEGO The Hobbit. I adore that trilogy of movies and this game is now on sale from $19.99 down to $14.99 as well. Pick up both games and receive free shipping as shipping is free on $25 or more.

Here is a thorough price comparison for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on the Xbox One:

  • $19.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $19.99 @ EB Games Canada
  • $39.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $19.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $44.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

The game is also the SAME price for the PS4 version. I checked out the PS4 version while price comparing and it cost the same as the Xbox One version at Toys R Us, EB Games, Best Buy Canada, and more. It is well worth purchasing if you own a PS4.

Next, I conducted a price comparison for LEGO The Hobbit for the Xbox One. The game is $19.97 at Best Buy Canada and $19.99 at Toys R Us Canada. EB Games no longer has the new version in stock, but they charge $14.99 for the previously played version (which is also out of stock). Nowhere else could I find this game for less than that $20 range.

Both games are a lot of fun for you and your kids. You get to solve puzzles, build stuff, and be your favourite hero from each universe. While I love the Marvel superhero stuff, I would buy The Hobbit version myself. I love the world that Tolkien created and I would love to explore it with my LEGO men. Thorin is all mine.

As with most Amazon Canada deals, we have no idea how long this one will last. In the past, good deals tend to go quickly (sometimes in hours), thus I always encourage Moosers to not wait if they see something they like.

Costco Canada: Sunjoy 75 Litre Stainless Steel Cooler Cart Was $230 | Now $180 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Costco Canada: Sunjoy 75 Litre Stainless Steel Cooler Cart Was $230 | Now $180 & Free Shipping

When I was at Costco last week, I saw this Sunjoy 75.7 litre (80 quart) stainless steel cooler cart and I fell in love. I believe it was actually priced higher in store too! What a perfect thing to have by the pool or on the back deck so you don’t have to have people stomping through your house and going through your stale leftovers to get a drink. Not just practical, this is a showpiece to have on your deck with its sleek stainless steel styling. Regularly $229.99, it is $50 off and selling for $179.99 with free shipping too.

This isn’t just a cooler either. The cart itself has caster wheels, a bottle opener with cap catcher and a towel bar. The bottom shelf allows you to store extra things like more beer. It can be used outside or inside as well as it is rust resistant.

I looked online to find out if this was the best price available and found that it definitely was. While it has a different look, this antique look 80 quart cooler cart sells for $219 at Home Depot. This Outsunny unit from Amazon is made from wicker and not as nice if you ask me and sells for $239. Shop.ca also sells that cooler cart for $289.

Other than those ones, I didn’t really see the SunJoy model except in the U.S., where it does sell for over $200. I also couldn’t find any reviews for this product, but I think it has pretty straightforward usage.

If I bought this cooler cart, I would keep it outside and fill it with freezies and juice boxes for my little ones when they have friends over. It drives me a little nuts when they jump on my trampoline then walk through my house with dirty feet looking for drinks and something to cool off with. I might as well set it up for them in advance. It is worth the money with the savings I’ll get on my time cleaning the floors.

Google Play Store: Family Movie Rentals Only 99¢

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Google Play Store: Family Movie Rentals Only 99¢

The Google Play store is offering family friendly movie rentals – commonly known as children’s movies – for only 99¢. This is often a $4- $5 discount on the regular price of the rental. In addition, these movies are also on sale if you end up wanting to buy a copy for your own digital movie library.

There are seven great family movies available to rent for only a dollar. First, the beloved kid’s creepy movie Coraline is discounted from $5.99 to rent down to $0.99. This is one of the few more recent movies that have been made with stop-motion animation. While I have yet to see the movie, I do love the author Neil Gaiman, who wrote the book that this movie was based on.

Next, enjoy a HD rental of Astro Boy. This is one movie I have been meaning to see as I love Japanese style animation and I have watched some of the original Astro Boy series from way back. I might even rent this for myself tonight and indulge in a little popcorn at the same time. Originally $4.99 for the rental, it is now only $0.99.

Next, you can rent Paranorman. Originally $4.99 for a rental, it is now only $0.99. I think of this as the perfect movie – along with Coraline – for a Halloween eve. For more sensitive children, watch it in the day light of summer! Norman’s town is under siege by zombies, and his is the only one that can speak to the dead!

Hoodwinked 2:  Hood vs. Evil is one of the few films I have actually seen from this list. This is a sequel to the brilliant movie Hoodwinked. While I think Hoodwinked 2 falls well short of the mark, it is a fun trip for kids into the land of fairy tales. Rent it now for only $0.99.

I had never heard of Sea Level before, but it is the adorable story of one bamboo shark’s attempt to save his family. Regularly $4.99 for a rental, watch it now for just $0.99.

Lastly, The Adventures of Mark Twain looks like a fun dive into literature including Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, and more stowed away on an airship. Originally $6.99, pick up the rental for just $0.99.

With kids out of school for the summer break, these budget friendly movie rentals will come in handy.

Amazon Canada: Buy a Select Movie & Get Up To $7.50 In Movie Cash

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Buy a Select Movie & Get Up To $7.50 In Movie Cash

Looking to see Ted 2 or Trainwreck? Buy a select movie at Amazon and you’ll be rewarded with $5 to $7.50 in movie cash to see either of those movies.

Basically, there are funny movies on sale at Amazon and when you buy one, with titles as low as $4.49, you’ll get a movie cash certificate emailed to you for either $5 or $7.50 to see the movies Ted 2 or Trainwreck, depending on the movie you buy. You’ll enter the certificate code when you buy your Cineplex ticket online to see those two movies and get a discounted or free price depending on which show you pick.

I don’t know how, but my kids saw a commercial about Ted 2 and think it is a movie they should see. Having seen the first one, I would have to say absolutely not. Don’t let this movie deceive you – while it is about a cute and cuddly teddy bear – he is also a drug-doing and prostitute-loving teddy bear. Your kids would get an education they might not want watching this movie. So, get your vulgarity-loving friends together and go see Ted 2 or Trainwreck for free after buying one of the select movies available at Amazon.

One of the movies on the list you could buy to get your free movie cash is The 40-Year-Old Virgin. That is probably one of my most favourite funny movies that cemented the career of Steve Carrell and I’m glad it did! It is regularly $14.99 and now only $4.49, which is quite a steal considering you’ll get more than that in movie cash just for buying it!

There are a few other funny ones on the list that I have seen and enjoyed like Identity Thief and A Million Ways to Die in the West. The original Ted is on there too if you hadn’t seen it.

As always, shipping is free when you spend $25. I’m not sure if it will let you buy several movies to get several codes and also save you the shipping fees, but that is definitely worth a try. You can build up your movie collection and take your friends to see a movie, while appearing as the hero!

Wicker Emporium Canada: Stonemill Reclaimed Pine Console Table Was $1200 | Now $600 & Free Shipping

Wicker Emporium Canada: Stonemill Reclaimed Pine Console Table Was $1200 | Now $600 & Free Shipping

Buying nice furniture for your home should be easy and exorbitant shipping fees shouldn’t be part of the deal either. When you buy furniture from traditional furniture stores in-store, you are looking at a $75 delivery fee. Wicker Emporium’s shipping fees were also quite steep, always stopping me from ordering from them. Luckily, they’ve now added free shipping on any order over $500, which is a minimum saving of $50. I found this gorgeous Stonemill Console Table with drawers made from reclaimed pine that is originally $1199.99 and now only $599.99. Of course, you’ll get free shipping on this item while also saving $600 on the table itself.

I was at a garage sale this weekend and found a gorgeous console for such a great price. Too bad for me I was too late and it had sold. It needed quite a bit of work to get it up to my decor standards. Something like this Stonemill table requires no work and is a piece that can be handed down in years to come.

It has a rustic look that is incredibly hot right now and will look great in your kitchen, dining room, front hall or other living space even when this trend is longer. Not just for looks, it also has a functional use with two drawers for keeping paperwork, keys, electronics and random kitchen tools.

What’s so amazing about reclaimed pine is that it promotes responsible uses of wood for our forests. Rather than cutting down a new tree, they reuse the wood from something else. See this Wikipedia article for more information on reclaimed lumber.

Reclaimed pine furniture can be expensive and I found a few Canadian stores that sold reclaimed pine consoles similar to this one. Urban Barn has one very similar selling for $699, but you’d have to go and pick it up in-store. Nowhere did I find a table of this size with drawers selling for that low of a price and shipping for free.

Of course, you could also see what else piques your fancy at Wicker Emporium as any order over $500 is subject to free shipping. You could also pair together a few smaller items, as they have some beautiful decor items.

Safety 1st Bath Time Bundle Was $45 | Now $24.99 (FS @ $25) @ Best Buy Canada

Safety 1st Bath Time Bundle Was $45 | Now $24.99 (FS @ $25) @ Best Buy Canada

Here is a little bath set that every new mom needs. Check out the Safety 1st Bath Time Bundle that was $44.99 but is now only $24.99. This perfect little bundle is a greater starter set for a new mom, or for the experienced mom to have everything together in one place.

Babies need a lot of gear in the beginning, and this little set perfectly combines many of the basics you need for bath time. Check out this set I found that is a perfect baby gift for that upcoming shower you are attending. Included in this kit is:

  • Comfy bath centre tub made of molded plastic
  • Comfy bath infant cushion
  • Grooming kit
  • Zippered carrying bag for travel

The tub on this kit is a hard plastic tub, which I found more convenient as my daughter got a little bigger. Included is a foam cushion to make the tub more comfortable for your baby when they are in the newborn stage. This tub fits most standard sinks, so you can choose whether to bathe your kiddo in the tub or sink depending on what is available. The bath also has a temperature strip included that can help you ensure the water is at just the right temperature for your babies sensitive skin. The grooming kit includes nail clippers, a soft baby brush and comb, round tip scissors and several emery boards. That gives you several nail trimming options for a job that can sometimes be difficult. I still cut my daughter’s nails with the round tip scissors, though my husband prefers the clippers.

At Toys R Us Canada, a plastic tub for babies by itself costs $27.99 with no included extras such as the cushion for newborns or the grooming kit. At Shop.ca, a Safety First bathtub with an infant sling that functions similarly to the infant cushion is $44.99 and does not include the grooming kit. At Sears.ca, I found a Safety First Complete Care Bath kit that includes a newborn sling, bathtub, rinse cup and a sponge that clocks in at $54.99.

To qualify for free shipping at $25, you will need a small filler item. I would pick up the Munchkin Float and Stack Buddies that was $6.99 but is on sale for $1.99. A cute little toy like this in the bath will add a little fun to your bath time gift set. Otherwise shipping is $16.99, yikes! Spend the extra two bucks and pick up the bath toy for a much better deal.
