Planning Out Your Christmas Shopping Plans

Posted by on November 22, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Planning Out Your Christmas Shopping Plans

It’s the second last Saturday of November, and the rumblings about the holiday season will be hard to avoid. Whether you’re hearing about it from co-workers, friends, family members, or your significant other, it’s no secret that Christmas is around the corner. At this time, I’m going to ask you a question that may either make you proudly and confidently say “yes”, or it just might add to the stress that these holidays can sometimes put on each of you. Without any further ado, here it is: Have you done all of your Christmas shopping?

If you haven’t, you don’t really need to be stressed out about it. After all, you’ve still got nearly 5 weeks to go before that fateful day on the 25th of December. Plus, you’ve got reputable websites like Bargainmoose that can always provide you with the latest deals and coupons for a huge variety of popular stores right here in Canada. The only problem that you’ll likely encounter is the nuisance of shopping in a crowded shopping mall, which doesn’t just occur on weekends during this time of the year! Parking your vehicle at a mall during this time of the year may also prove to be a difficult task, so there’s another reason why many people don’t look forward to doing their Christmas shopping too late – especially when you hit the month of December.

Once December hits, many people realize that Christmas is around the corner, so certain popular items, especially if they were just introduced recently, may be tough to find for its regular price. For example, last year the hot items to have were the Sony PS4 and the Xbox One systems, which were first introduced on November 15th, 2013 and November 22nd, 2013. It was a real challenge to find these anywhere before Christmas day – stock was flying off the shelves within minutes, and were selling for inflated prices on online auction sites like eBay.

In other words, if there’s something new and fresh that’s been introduced for this holiday season that’s on your Christmas list, don’t wait until the last minute to get it. If this gift is something that someone you care about really looks forward to getting, especially if they deserve to be rewarded with a great gift during the holiday season, you should try to at least get that before it becomes difficult to find it in-stock at your favourite retailers.

When you’re planning out your Christmas shopping plans, it helps to just slow down from that daily rat race that we call “life”, take a breather, and spend some time in your home office/computer room/bedroom to organize a brief list of what you need to get. Now this time of the year can get pretty expensive, and it can certainly lay a smack down on our bank accounts, so when you’re making your list, you should also take the time to do a little bit of research on the items that you plan to purchase for Christmas.

Doing an adequate amount of research on the products that you plan to buy is a great way to save some of your hard-earned cash during the holidays. I’ve included some of the ways that you can do this below:

  • First of all, find out the different retailers that will carry the products that you’re looking for. After doing this, check out their websites to see how the items that you want are priced, and look for the best deal.
  • You should also check out the coupons and sales that we have listed for these retailers right here on Bargainmoose. You can check out our coupons by clicking here.
  • When certain items appear to be priced for the same amount, refer to the coupons that we have listed here on Bargainmoose (click on the link above to check them out). You can sometimes find promo codes where you could save a certain percentage off of your purchase, or you can even “buy 1 get 1 free” for some particular items. Either way, at this time of the year, there’s always a way to find a sale, and we’re here to provide you with the cream of the crop! On a side note, I apologize for using that dated reference.
  • When you want to avoid the crowded atmosphere of a shopping mall, do your shopping online! Many popular retailers like WalMart, Future Shop, Toys R Us, HollisterBest Buy, and even Peoples Jewellers have great websites that allow you to do your shopping online, and some even provide you with access to some web-exclusive discounts, and you can get the soon-to-be gifts that you need shipped right to your door (or another location, if you want to hide the evidence from your family)!

How do you handle your Christmas shopping plans? Feel free to leave your comments below! I hope you all have a great night, my fellow deal hunters!

Buffalo Jeans Canada Promo Code: Exclusive No Minimum Free Shipping

Posted by on November 22, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Buffalo Jeans Canada Promo Code: Exclusive No Minimum Free Shipping

Usually, shipping is only free on orders over $99 at Buffalo Jeans but during the next couple of days, you can use our Bargainmoose exclusive to get free shipping on any order with no required minimum purchase!

Click here to shop @ BuffaloJeans.ca

  • Coupon Code: FSBARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: 27th November 2014

The best way to take full advantage of this Bargainmoose exclusive Buffalo Jeans coupon code is by getting something from the sale section.

For women, the cheapest tops I found are the Buffskull and the Slubbie. Both are on sale for $25.99 (reg. $34), are only available in a small size and are crop tops. For a shirt that is not a crop top, check out the Sweets. It’s a tank top that would need to be worn with an under shirt as it features a cut out design. It’s on sale for $29.99 (reg. $39).

If you’re on the hunt for a unique look to wear during the holidays or perhaps even to the annual family Christmas dinner, then definitely check out the Mermaid skirt. It looks absolutely phenomenal and is on sale for just $36.99 (reg. $49). As you can guess, it’s made in a mermaid style and features and black and white tie dye effect all around. It does look like it’s rather long but it could always be hemmed. The model in the picture on Buffalo’s site is 5’7″ and the skirt comes all the way down to the floor.

One of the cheapest casual style of jeans that I found for women are the Faith ones on sale for $79.99 (reg. $99). There are a couple of other style of pants that are cheaper but they’re perhaps better suited for the summer as one is white, the other is white with contrast stitching etc. The Faith jeans are skinny jeans with 98% cotton and come in a blue vintage colour.

Although it’s only on regularly-priced clothing, you can also take advantage of the ongoing promotion on Buffalo’s site right now where if you buy 2 items, you will get 20% off or if you buy 3 items, then you will get 30% off. Chances are good, however, that if you buy 2 or more items that your order will reach the usual $99 threshold for free shipping.

Speaking of which, I can tell you from experience that Buffalo Jeans orders are shipped quickly. I have ordered from them in the past and was pleasantly surprised when the mail man rang my doorbell two days later with a package in hand!

Jet-Setter Canada: No Taxes + 20% Discount + Extra 5% Off!

Posted by on November 22, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Jet Setter Canada: No Taxes + 20% Discount + Extra 5% Off!

Time to pile on the savings! During Jet-Setter’s Holiday Sale Event, you can save 20% off select products and until Monday, you won’t be charged tax on anything as part of their Tax Free Weekend. Plus, you can also use Jet-Setter coupon code: JET15 on most items to save an additional 5% off any order!

In case you have never heard of Jet-Setter before, it’s an online store that primarily sells luggage and accessories for travel.

In the Holiday Sale Event section, there are plenty of folders, colourful laptop sleeves, bags and much more to save on. Whether you’re looking to travel soon — say to a beach resort — or maybe even in a couple of months, there are plenty of travel accessories that you can get now at a discount.

Black Friday is almost upon us and if you’re planning on getting a laptop, then you’re going to need a sleeve. The Pack-It Specter laptop sleeve 13″ comes down to just $21.28 from a sale price of $22.40 (reg. $28). It comes in 3 colours, from orange, green to white/ green and features light perforated padding, a Power Port on the side for convenient charging and it’s even washable!

Keep in mind that the Jet15 coupon code is a bit of a hit and miss one. I tried it on the pack-it liquid/ gel set and it wasn’t applied. However, the 20% discount was applied and so was the no tax special. Originally priced at $17, it comes down to $13.60 and comes with 4 travel-sized bottles with a capacity of 3oz. They also come in a durable polyurethane zip top pouch to further prevent any accidents. Flying can cause all sorts of havoc on your personal items, especially when you bring skincare products, so it’s best to be safe than sorry. There is nothing worse than opening your suitcase only to discover that shampoo leaked everywhere!

Do you always run out of room in your luggage or maybe even when going on any kind of trip at all? Then check out the Pack-It compression sacs. They come in a medium size and regularly priced at $12, they can now be yours for just $9. With 4 positive reviews, here’s one that particularly stood out to me:

It definitely does the job and the quality is good – durable and you don’t have to worry about it ripping. The only thing to be careful of is when you use it for packing your luggage. You can fit tons more stuff into your suitcase because of the compression, but your suitcase may end up being overweight.

Shipping is free on orders over $60.

Walmart.ca Pre-Black Friday Sale Now On!

Posted by on November 22, 2014 at 1:20 PM

Walmart.ca Pre Black Friday Sale Now On!

While popping over to our wonderful Black Friday deals dashboard and doing a bit of work on updating you with all the latest deals and steals, I spotted that Walmart.ca has launched a series of “pre” Black Friday deals. Their Black Friday page was previously blank, but they’ve loaded it up with some offers before their big sale event on the 28th. Here is the info:

On the above link, you can scan down the page and see all the offers. As one might expect from Walmart, there are offers on many product ranges, from TVs to toasters. A few highlights, I’ll just list some of those which I’ve price compared and I think they’re good bargains:

Hey! Those all come with free shipping too!

I’d love one of those NutriBullets, but I don’t have any room left in my little kitchen for any more appliances. I’ve been trying to eat healthily for a few weeks, and the image on the Nutribullet makes me think that it will magically assist me to a more healthy diet!

The Elite mop looks really good too… I have a few tiled and wooden floors throughout my house which just seem to attract dust like mad. I’d also like one of those.

Note: Do your due diligence

If you spot an item in the Walmart pre-Black Friday sale that catches your interest and I haven’t yet mentioned it in the post above, make sure you do a price comparison before buying. For example, the SONY a5000 Mirrorless Camera with 16-50mm lens – ILCE5000LB which we mentioned here a few days ago was on offer for $348, but it’s the same price at FutureShop and BestBuy. So, it isn’t exactly a hot bargain from Walmart any more, as those other stores have matched the price now too. Or, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 which is $178 but it’s around $179 at almost every other store anyway.

I’m looking forward to the Walmart sales event on Black Friday itself, I hope for some super bargains!

Hatley Canada: Making The Moose Out of X-Mas Apron Only $12.50 (Was $25) & Free Shipping

Posted by on November 22, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Hatley Canada: Making The Moose Out of X Mas Apron Only $12.50 (Was $25)  & Free Shipping

Hatley has a number of items on for 50% off right now, including this moose-rific Christmas apron, which is now only $12.50, regularly $25. It just so happens they are also having their free shipping with no minimum weekend on right now, so you’ll also get it shipped to you for free, instead of having to spend a minimum of $50.

Of course, we at Bargainmoose love this apron, but I know that the Hatley lovers out there will love it too. Moose and bears are part of Hatley’s trademark look. An apron like this is perfect for yourself or as a gift for the cooking or baking lover in your life.

The item has also been discontinued, so you won’t see it in stock again, so if you love it, now is the time to jump. It is 100% cotton, splatter resistant and has an adjustable neck so any man or woman can wear it.

While you’re at it, you could get the matching oven mitt for only $5, regularly $10. My mom would love the fridge magnet that matches as well, only $2, regularly $4.

If you aren’t into moose (as if that’s possible), the Season’s Grrreetings apron is also cute, with the signature bear cooking a turkey. Also only $12.50.

If you don’t mind paying full price, you can still shop other items at Hatley and get free shipping this weekend. Check out the wide selection of kitchen aprons in the gift section. I like the Making a Moose in the Kitchen because that’s apparently what I do, but I love it. This one is full price at $25.

Although this is the free shipping weekend so you don’t have to spend $50 to get free shipping, you have an incentive to do so. First, your incentive is all the great stuff in the outlet you might want to buy. Second, if you spend over $50, you’ll get a free Hatley ornament. These are $8.99 each, so you might have to weigh out the cost of your shipping to the cost of the ornament. My favourite of course: Moose Angel.

  • Expiry: 3rd December 2014

The price of these boxes range from $36 to $38, with over $100 worth of products in each. This means you’ll need to buy three boxes to get the discount.

This coupon is only good until December 3rd as this is the latest date that they can be shipped to ensure they are there as Christmas gifts.

The first box is the chalet chic luxe box, which has a $90 value and sells for $36. If you were to get three and use the coupon, you’d pay $81 total, making each box cost less than $27 each. When I’m buying gifts for friends or someone who has given me a great service over the year (massage therapist, teacher, hairdresser), I usually try to spend around $25, which makes these boxes the perfect price. This price also includes shipping, which is very nice!

The second box is the enchantress luxe box, with a price of $38, and a $110 value. Using the coupon and getting three will net you each box for only $28.50.

Future Shop Canada: Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse (M325) | Was $35 Now $15

Future Shop Canada: Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse (M325) | Was $35 Now $15

Hey there, Bargainmoosers! I’m here to bring you all some good news – Future Shop is having a sale on their Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse (M325), and you can now purchase one of these useful computer accessories for only $14.99 (plus $6.99 shipping)! Now this wireless mouse normally retail for $34.99, so you’re getting one nice deal here (that’s $20 off the regular price)! If you spend an extra $10 on Future Shop’s website, you could also qualify for free shipping, or you could even choose to ship it to a Future Shop location near you to save on the shipping cost.

This Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse (M325) would be a fantastic stocking stuffer! It’s affordable, it’s something that everyone could find useful, and it’s pretty thoughtful, as well! You can learn more about this wireless mouse by clicking on the link above.

I remember getting my first wireless mouse about 9 years ago. Back then, the wireless technology didn’t seem to work too well, and the batteries would waste fairly quickly. Nowadays, I thankfully have a newer wireless mouse (it’s 2 years old), and it works great! Also, the battery (mine just requires 1 AAA battery) tends to last for a very long time.

If you were to buy this Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse from 123inkcartridges, it would cost you $34.99. I’ve included a brief review of this wireless mouse from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

Very easy to install and use. I recommend whole heartily

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Saturday, my fellow deal hunters!

5 Tips to Save Money on Christmas This Year

5 Tips to Save Money on Christmas This Year

As we all know, the holidays are expensive.  In 2012, according to an article by the Financial Post (and a survey conducted by Bank of Montreal), shoppers planned to spend an average of $674 in gifts during the holiday season and just shy of another $1000 for trips and travel during the holiday season.  People planned to spend an extra $100 compared to 2011.  For some reason Christmas spending inflation beat the average inflation for times outside of Christmas.

Here are some more ways to prevent overspending and to achieve holiday deflation instead of holiday inflation!

Make a List and Check it Twice

Just like Santa does, making a list and checking it twice is a great way to stay on budget.  You will be surprised how much everything adds up.  As mentioned in a post on how to save money on Christmas shopping, it is important to have a budget for each person so you know in general how much you plan to spend.  Try to make a goal to spend under the average amount the average Canadian spends on holiday gifts.

Use Discount Gift Cards

As mentioned in CBSnews, using discounted gift cards is a great idea to save money.  Buy your gift cards with your cash back credit card (make sure you are able to pay off your credit card bill at the end of the month though) through sites like cardswap.ca or through Costco.ca to save anywhere from 1-2%, and then purchase the presents with these gift cards.

Don’t Buy Cards or Wrap

Personally I don’t buy Christmas or holiday cards every year and I have re-use my wrapping paper and gift bags to help my wallet and the environment!  Here is a great Bargainmoose post on how to save money on Christmas cards.  Here’s another great Bargainmoose post on how to save money on Christmas gift wrap.

If you are going to buy Christmas cards or holiday themed wrapping paper, buy them after Christmas is over for the following year.  That way you will get at least 50% off in savings.

Use your Points

A great point that Heather from Bargainmoose made is to use your Air Miles, Shoppers Drug Mart, or cash back credit card points for your Christmas purchases.  This is a great idea because then you know how much you have allotted for your Christmas shopping ahead of time.  It will make the “sting” of Christmas spending less painful because you know that this is money that is “bonus” and not something coming out of your actual pay cheque.    Of course, you likely won’t be able to get presents for all the people on your list with this method, but it will definitely help the holiday budget a little (or a lot), that’s for sure.

Give Homemade Gifts

For about five of my close girlfriends, we had agreed a few years earlier to give homemade gifts to each other.  We give the same present to each other (e.g., make a batch of the same homemade gift) and we actually look forward to ‘guessing’ what has been made for us.  This has worked out really well as otherwise I would be spending at least $150 extra per  year.  We keep the costs of the homemade gift on the low end.  In the past, I have made homemade Bailey’s, bath bombs, jewellery (earrings and bracelets).  My friends have made me an infinity scarf, a personalized mug, homemade hot chocolate mix… the list goes on!

I find that homemade gifts are a great way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas without the consumerism attached to modern Christmas.  The most important part of giving homemade gifts to your friends is to ensure that they are understand they will be giving home made gifts too!  The last thing you want is someone to feel ‘short changed’… not that they should, but you never know how people end up feeling.

We all usually get together on a small weekend getaway and give the gift at the same time.  The Lifehack article on 10 Ways to save money this year without losing the sparkle emphasizes that we should focus on the celebration of the holidays, and not the gifts.

Hot! 50% Off Everything @ The Gap With Promo Code

Hot! 50% Off Everything @ The Gap With Promo Code

This weekend take 50% off everything regular and sale priced at The Gap with promo code.

Click here to shop @ Gapcanada.ca now

  • Coupon Code: GAPLIST
  • Discount: 50% off
  • Expiry: 23rd November 2014

I would say half off is a pretty sweet discount from The Gap as I haven’t really seen a coupon this high for this store. You’ll want to stock up on all your holiday wear and gifts as I don’t really believe it will get better than this (but I could be wrong, it has happened before, rarely Hot! 50% Off Everything @ The Gap With Promo Code ).

I was looking through the baby section and boy was I getting baby fever looking at all the cuteness! I love The Gap for babies, especially baby gifts. I remember when my first niece was born and I took my husband (who was my new boyfriend at the time time) to get her a gift. It was his brother’s first child and I said he should spare no expense. So, we spent $100 on beautiful baby clothes for the new sweet one, who just turned 11! If you have a new baby in the family, you can rest easy that you don’t have to spend that much as everything is 50% off.

I need to start with the cutest one-piece ever, that babe will need to wear to bed on Christmas Eve. So simple, yet so adorable, this one-piece regularly sells for $29.95, but with coupon you’ll get it for only $14.97. Why not get two?

I think I would be here all day if I listed all of the gorgeous baby stuff at The Gap, but I’ll mention one more. This quilted bear hoodie is seriously a must-have for family photos in new nordic red. Also $29.95, get it for only $14.97.

Don’t forget to visit the sale sections for men, women and the kids, as you’ll get 50% off the hot deals there.

I found these 1969 always skinny jeans in size 18 or 20 for only $16.99, but once you’ve added them to your cart with the coupon, they come down to $8.49! Less than $9 for a pair of jeans is crazy!

Shipping is free on a $50 spend, and you can combine your cart with Old Navy to get up to that total.

Watch for all The Gap coupon codes, and even subscribe to get them right in your inbox.
