The Bay Canada: Free 8 Piece Lancome Gift with $35+

There is another great free gift with beauty purchase offer from The Bay Canada that is for one of their most popular beauty lines.  Get a free 8 piece gift when you purchase $35 or more in Lancome products for a limited time only.

This deal is a pretty great one because the free gift that would will receive is valued at $191! Additionally, this is no ordinary free gift.  You basically get to choose the entire gift to suit your beauty routine.  For example, you will get to chose which colours you want, which bag you want and which serum fits your skincare needs.

Here is what you will get with this freebie:

  • Cosmetic Bag
  • Eye Makeup Remover
  • Mascara
  • Skin Care Duo (2 items)

  • Eye Makeup Shades
  • Lipstick

With every single item listed above you will be able to choose from a couple of options to customize your free gift.

I am a huge fan of Lancome products.  They can be on the more expensive side but they are totally worth it.  Not only do I find the makeup lasts longer when I wear it, but it also looks a bit better as well.

As for the cost of shipping, you will get free shipping when you use your HBC MasterCard or HBC Credit Card on purchases of $45 or more. If you are using any other form of payment, you can still get free shipping when you spend $99 or more.

Proactiv Canada: Free Shipping With No Minimum

Proactiv Canada: Free Shipping With No Minimum

Avi blogged the other day about how she didn’t find it fair that she is now an adult with acne. I’d have to agree that crows feet and acne together is just totally unfair. Well, there is something we can do about it and proactiv is a brand that is said to help all the big celebrities with their pimply faces. Maybe it could work for Avi and I. Right now they have some great deals on with free gifts with purchase and free shipping for a limited time.

There are three different packs to choose from, which can help you get better skin. If you have a lot of acne, you might want to try the deluxe Proactiv pak for ultimate acne care. It includes five products to balance, hydrate and protect your skin. As a teen, you might look at fighting stubborn acne like those giant zits you get with hormones with the Proactiv pak for teens that includes a blemish treatment along with the other products. Both of those packs cost $34.99. For day-to-day regular acne fighting action, check out the 3-step Proactiv pak with cleanser, toner and treatment and for only $24.99.

On top of these packs, you’ll get some free extras like the travel size green tea moisturizer, The Doctors secrets to a lifetime of clear skin book and ActivMember Benefits. On top of that, you’ll be able to choose from one more extra like a blackhead dissolving gel or deep cleansing brush and more.

I do see a little hitch though. You’ll be automatically subscribed to start getting a 60-day supply every two months, a month or two after your initial order. It will also be charged $9 shipping. This is something I’d cancel immediately as I don’t like being told what I am buying. Cancelling will not affect your first order and maybe you like it so much you’ll take part in this deal. Just be aware that it happens.

Toys R Us Canada: 40% Off Mega Bloks Ride Ons & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 17, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Toys R Us Canada: 40% Off Mega Bloks Ride Ons & Free Shipping

If you have a toddler, you know they like to ride on stuff – the dog, the cat, your leg – whatever they can hang on to while it moves, they’ll ride it. Why not get them an actual vehicle to ride on? Toys R Us has a great deal on Mega Bloks ride on toys, now only $29.97, was $49.99. And since they’ve reduced their shipping threshold down from $99 to $25, these items should ship for free, but because they are larger, you’ll get $10 off shipping. Once I looked in my cart and realized the shipping was only $11, minus the $10, I’d only have to pay $1 for shipping!

The ride-on toys in our home got quite a lot of use. From the time a child can stand (they don’t even know how to walk to ride one) until about kindergarten (and sometimes beyond), your child will use this toy. Our ride-ons were so well loved that we had to buy a new one with each kid because they got so worn down.

If you have a little construction fanatic, this Cat with excavator ride-on is totally perfect. He or she can even use it in the sandbox.

I’m really crushing on the Jeep ride-on, that can also be used as a walker (so handy) and has a storage compartment for your blocks, plus makes real Jeep sounds. They have the Jeep in pink too.

  • Coupon Code: APRIL30
  • Discount: 30% off

Club Monaco’s high-quality modern fashions are some of my favourites, but they can be a bit pricey so I don’t shop there as often as I’d like. Unless of course they’ve got a great sale on, like they do this weekend!

They are offering an extra 30% discount on top of their already sale-priced items. And they’ve recently added a bunch of new markdowns so the sale selection is pretty good right now. Not only do they have sale-priced spring and summer items like t-shirts and dresses that you can wear now, but there are also a number of deals on investment pieces like cashmere and coats that would work for next winter. Here’s a look at a few of the deals available (the prices here already include the 30% discount):

Sportchek Canada: 25% Off Nike & Puma Golf Apparel

Posted by on April 17, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Sportchek Canada: 25% Off Nike & Puma Golf Apparel

Golf season is almost here. In fact my boys all went and hit some balls at the driving range already. Are you dressed appropriately? If not, Sportchek has 25% off Nike and Puma golf apparel for men and women.

Golf apparel would make a fabulous Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift for the golfer in your life. I know my husband would love to get some new duds to wear out on the links, so I’m totally checking out this sale. I wish I could say I golfed, but hitting the ground repeatedly with my club doesn’t constitute good golfing etiquette. I do like the clothing though. I think the women golfers with the skirts and dresses look amazing, like they would in this Nike Golf premium women’s dress. It says that the prices shown include the discount, so this dress is now only $104.99.

My husband is the flashy type and he would absolutely love and wear these Puma Golf plaid tech style pants while hitting a few balls. These are now $89.99. I just hope he wouldn’t match it up with this Puma Golf stripe polo top, because that would be a bit much. Now only $67.49.

You’ll have to (I say it like I’m twisting your arm) spend $99 to get free shipping.

RW&Co.: Spend $50 & Get a $50 Off Coupon

Posted by on April 17, 2014 at 2:30 PM

RW&Co.: Spend $50 & Get a $50 Off Coupon

Spend $50 and get $50. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Spend just $50 on regular or sale priced items at RW&Co until May 11th and get a $50 coupon in your email to spend from May 16th to June 8th on your purchase of $100 or more.

So, basically you’ll spend $50 today and on May 15th you’ll be emailed $50, which you’ll go and use the next day to pay only $50 on a $100 order. In total, you’ll only have to spend $100 for $150 worth of items. I think that is a pretty sweet deal, especially considering you take advantage of any other sales they have on now and then.

You can also take part in this sale in-store, you’ll get your coupon on the spot. You can only use one coupon per transaction and you have to use the entire thing in one go.

Of course I shopped the sale aisles with this sale and found a few really great deals like my choice of a zillion jeggings for only $45, which saves you about $10 to $15 depending on style.

Then I popped into the clearance section, which is actually an additional 30% off in the cart. This short sleeve striped slub t-shirt was $35, brought down to $24.95, but only $17.45 in the cart.

If you bought both items today, you’d get your $50 coupon to save for next time.

Shipping is a very affordable flat rate of $4.95.

Hatley Canada Exclusive Promo Code: $20 Off $100

Hatley Canada Exclusive Promo Code: $20 Off $100

With our first ever exclusive coupon code from Hatley, I present to you: $20 off your $100 purchase. If you are going to take advantage of this coupon, you’ll be spending more than $50, which also snags you free shipping.

Click here to shop @ Hatley.com now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE
  • Discount: $20 off
  • Expiry: 21st April 2014

I have to say I’m in love with Hatley. I stumbled upon this brand after an unfortunate fecal accident with my 8-month-old, who was then left clothing-less. We were visiting the CN Tower and they have a Hatley shop at the base, so we went in there and bought him the cutest sleeper I’ve ever seen. I just couldn’t believe how cute he looked in it, even though it cost $28. But, it was $28 well spent as he wore it all the time. While Hatley is on the higher-priced side, deals like this make you want to splurge a little.

I had a little pang of uterine anxiety while looking at the very cute girl’s dresses, being that I have three boys. It was actually very hard for me to pick out the cutest one, as they are all extremely adorable, but I think this Bunting Birds flutter sleeve poplin dress wins the prize. $39

Hatley is most well-known for its awesome pyjamas, but also its rain gear. You really want it to rain when you see the cuteness of this deep sea creatures boy’s raincoat. $52

Don’t forget they also lots of apparel and gift ideas for babies and adults too.

The Source: Ematic 7 HD Quad Core 8GB Tablet $88 (Save $62)

The Source Canada has an enchanting deal on an Ematic  7” HD quad core tablet with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Google Play. Originally $149.99, the tablet is now on sale for $87.99.

The device comes with a 1.5GHz quad core processor with a dedicated GPU. It stores plenty of apps and games on its 8GB of flash memory space that you can expand up to 32GB via its microSD card slot. Those cards aren’t too expensive either.

Use the 5GB of included cloud storage to stream your music and movies to your tablet also. The screen is a 7″ HD 1024×600 capacitive touchscreen. An excellent device for this price. You can choose from black, red, blue, yellow, green, or pink.

I price compared with a few places to make sure you were getting the best deal. I found the device on the Amazon.ca marketplace for $124.99. I found a bunch on eBay.ca for anywhere between $120 to $160. I then found them in stock at Sears.ca for $107.99 but expect a $4 handling charge and then shipping unless you want to pick it  up at your local store. Either way, The Source Canada has by far the best deal.

Get free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

Asos.com: 20% Off The Asos Label

Usually I only post coupon deals from Asos (UK) because they tend to be the best. Despite Asos being a boutique, which carried a myriad of fantastic brands, they also have their own in-house brand that is very good quality for the price. Right now they are offering 20% off the Asos brand.

I rarely buy in-house labels when I can get designer goods on sale. However, I own three pieces of the Asos brand and the quality is better than several of the designer goods I have bought. This ASOS Mini Bodycon Dress With Long Sleeves is on rotation as a wardrobe staple, meaning I wear it a couple times every week, it gets washed, and then repeat. Originally $37.97 , it is now on sale for $29.53.

I want to pick up a couple ASOS PETITE Ribbed Mini Bodycon Dresses to pair with my leggings from Black Milk. Originally $31.64, they are now on sale for $25.31. If I ever wanted to branch out from black I might grab this ASOS PETITE Exclusive Strappy Skater Dress with Gold Trim as it is just so pretty. Originally $59.07, it is now $46.41. It comes in lilac, navy, or white.

Asos is totally my go to place for cheap but good quality tops and dresses. Oddly enough, I am wearing an Asos dress today! Get free shipping to Canada on all purchases. Orders of $20 or more may be subject to duties. However, I have ordered twenty times from them and no duties yet.

Avon Canada: 75% Off Beauty Bundle – Now Just $25 (Was $102) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 16, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Avon Canada: 75% Off Beauty Bundle   Now Just $25 (Was $102) (EXPIRED)

Avon Canada has an amazing deal on the beauty bundle right now: originally priced at $101.97, you can have it for 75% off at just $25!

This beauty bundle comes with the following must-try items:

  • Mega Effects mascara
  • Anew Clinical Absolute Even Clarifying hand cream DSX
  • Anew Genics eye treatment
  • Avon Elements refreshing cleansing wipes
  • Clearskin Professional liquid extraction strip
  • Advance Techniques 360 Nourish Moroccan argan oil leave-in treatment

The Mega Effects mascara is definitely the one that I most want to try because it’s unlike any mascara I have ever seen or tried. Instead of being in a tube, it looks like a painter’s brush and is also advertised as being ergonomic. Plus, it’s supposed to last for 24 hours without clumping.

Be sure to also check out their Mother’s Day section for loads of great gift ideas like the sterling silver braided ring with CZ accents, which you can get for 50% off, at just $44.99 instead of $89.99.

With regards to shipping, Avon differs from others stores in that your order is processed by your nearest representative. You can also choose to either pick it up yourself or have the order delivered directly to your door.

My first pick of the store is these Guya Truth or Dare by Madonna shoes that were $130 and are now $59.98. They come either black or brown but you will most likely want these babies on black. The heel on them is such a beauty: adorably tucked in to the body of the shoe. After coupon code these shoes come down to just $47.98.

For the men, I must vote for these Mustonen by Floyd (pictured above). They were were $120 and are now $59.98 as well so they also come down to $47.98 after coupon. I love the denim with the contrasting leather and the bright laces.

How To Plan a Frugal Easter Dinner

Posted by on April 16, 2014 at 8:00 PM

How To Plan a Frugal Easter Dinner

This weekend I am having nearly 20 people over for Easter dinner.  My house is about 1900 square feet- not small, but not exactly large either.  We definitely don’t have enough seating for 20 people to eat, and I’m scared of the cost of feeding that many people.  What to do?  I want to plan in advance to make the get-together as successful as possible, and I want it to be as frugal as possible (plus I need to space plan to ensure that we have space for everyone to eat).   In addition, we have the following dietary restrictions in our family:  veganism, dairy allergy, celiac disease, egg allergy and shellfish allergy. Lots of things to think about, and lots of stuff to plan.  Plus, we’re having representation from my husband’s family and my family, so I want to ensure that people feel welcome and engaged.  Here is what I am planning to do for our Easter dinner.

Issue- planning a frugal and healthy meal:

We have waited until this week to buy the meat for Easter, as typically meats like turkey and ham go on sale the week before Easter.  Since we waited until the last second to purchase our meat, we have been flexible with planning our menu.  We have decided that we are actually going to cook a delicious roast beef and also have a spiral ham, which is my favourite.  It’s not exactly traditional, but both meats were on special at our local grocery store, and we like changing things up.  The ham is on sale for $1.99 per pound, which is an amazing price.  We will purchase a 10 pound ham.  The roast beef is on sale for $4.99 per pound, which is nearly $9.00 off the normal price.  We will purchase a 5 pound roast beef.  According to thekitchn.com, for a meal like ours where there will be substantial sides, we should budget for about ½ pound of meat per person.  With 20 people in attendance, that would mean we will need approximately 10 pounds of meat.  We always like to have extras, so 15 pounds of meat is great for us.  Purchasing meat on sale will cost us approximately $45 instead of over $100.

If you want an ultra-frugal menu for Easter check out the menu on notconsumed.  Between pairing coupons with sale items and using what she has on hand, she has planned an Easter dinner for 5 for $11.42.

Issue- numerous dietary restrictions:

The good news about my family’s dietary restrictions is that there is one common denominator, if I make vegan dishes, that will keep everyone happy.  I found vegkitchen and all my worries are solved.  These recipes look awesome.  I will definitely make some of these side dishes including the deviled tomatoes recipe and citrus roasted tofu as a veggie main.

Issue- drinks, to have booze or not:

Alcohol is expensive.  Typically when we host an event we like to have a themed cocktail and wine and beer to go with our meal.  We find that people generally are more relaxed (especially my family) once they have had a drink or two.  We will probably have a few bottles of wine at the table, and I saw a television advertisement the other day for a delicious-looking Grand Marnier based drink called the Grand O.  This might be the signature cocktail we make for our clan.  In addition, we will have sparking water available for people to enjoy.

Issue- decorating the house on a budget:

I am not a decorator.  I don’t get off on having themed paraphernalia up all over my house.  My mother, on the other hand, loves it and has a stock pile of themed decorative accents for all occasions.  I have none of these, but this year I’d really like my house to look festive but I don’t want to spend a fortune on it.   I am also not crafty, so I need decorations which are really, really easy to do.  I like the idea of decorating my mantle like this example on about.com.  I also like the idea of making a homemade egg shaped garland like this one from ediva.  This would be a fun craft to do with my girls one night.  I know it isn’t environmentally friendly, but we will be using disposable plates and cutlery on Saturday.  I found this cute idea to wrap/store individual disposable cutlery on spoonful.com, it’s another cute and easy craft that my girls can help me with.  Now I’m excited about the decorating!

Issue- keeping it interesting:

We have a variety of ages in our family, people range in age from 9 months to 83, so I want to find some activities that will keep everyone engaged.  Check out this wiki on Easter themed activities.  I am definitely going to do #1 and likely #6 as well, as they are both really easy and fun to do.   Everyone loves guessing the number of items in a jar, and it’s a great way to get people talking to one another.  And the easter bunny game is just plain silly and fun.  It will be a hit with people of all ages in our family.

We’re very fortunate with our family in that everyone contributes to most large family gatherings.  Even though there is a lot to do, my family will help quite a bit.  I don’t want to let my stress cloud the reason we get together, to celebrate Easter.  I’m sure our family dinner will be outstanding, but I can’t wait until it is over!

Bargainmoosers, what are your frugal Easter party tips?

Air Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Canadian Travel

Air Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Canadian Travel

Air Canada has a coupon code for 15% off air travel within Canada.

Click here to book your fall flight @ Air Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 15SPRING
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 21st April 2014

I’m going to say fall flight because the coupon is valid on flights flown from the 8th of September through the 15th of December, 2014. If you have summer flight plans, this coupon is not going to help out. Sorry. The coupon is valid on tango and flex fares. Codeshare flights are unfortunately not eligible. Thanksgiving weekend is blacked out: so this coupon will not work on flights between the 10th and 13th of October 2014.

I will be done school at the end of June, but my graduation ceremony isn’t until November! I have no desire to drive through the Rocky Mountains in the middle of winter so I will probably fly from Vancouver Island, transfer in Vancouver (or Calgary), and onward to Edmonton for my graduation ceremony. This coupon will certainly help keep my flight costs down while I hop provinces. My husband will certainly be coming with me so 15% off two flights will be very helpful.

Where are you flying off to this fall?
