Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

The other day we blogged about this massager and what a great deal it was at Best Buy for $34.99 and now it is is $29.99 at Future Shop. If you didn’t get it then, you might want to today at this cheaper price! It has a regular price of $99.99.

Well, I was going to blog this deal for you that I found at The Source, until when price comparing, I found it even cheaper right now at Best Buy!

With the stress of the holidays looming on my back, I really need a massage! Unfortunately for me, my benefits have run out so I need to wait just a few more weeks to get one and get reimbursed for it. In the meantime, my aching back and shoulders are screaming out for some relief and hubby’s hands just don’t cut it. But, I could pass him this massager and get him to do it with that. I think that would really help get some knots out.

I’d also love this for my middle son, who has trouble getting to sleep and deep pressure works wonders on him. Instead of using my hands, I could massage his back with this. It says it gives 3,000 pulses per minute, which sounds pretty good to me. I can even do it myself as there is an extension arm.

It has really great reviews like:

I bought the body massager for my aching legs. They work really well as I feel better after massaging my legs. They are also great for all over body massage, specially the back. I got this on sale from Best Buy for half price. Lucky me. The only cons was the 3″ arm extension. If you try to close it fast, part of your hand can get caught and will hurt you. But once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll always remember to close it slowly. Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

It sells at Walmart for $78, at Well.ca for $99 and at The Source on sale right now for $50.

Another way you can tell when something is a hot deal is that it goes in my cart, and this one did. I know Best Buy ships quickly so I think I’ll get this by Christmas even though I didn’t get any shipping details. It will also ship for free being over the $25 minimum.

Amazon Canada: The Flintstones Complete Series Only $41

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 11:59 AM

Amazon Canada: The Flintstones Complete Series Only $41

The Flintstones: The Complete Series is on sale for just $40.99 with free shipping right now, down from the retail price of $120 at Amazon Canada.

Here is a price-comparing composite to show you what other retailers are selling The Flintstones Collection for:

  • $84 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $74.99 @ HMV Canada (in-store only)

Future Shop and Best Buy do not sell the collection; rather they have individual seasons for $39.99. Walmart also has individual seasons for $39.46. I checked out the individual seasons on Amazon – and most of them are on sale for just $14.99 each. However, this collection is still a far better deal as there are six seasons. If you paid the individual price per season, it would cost you $89.94 in total.

This box set is all kinds of awesome. You get 24 disks of fantastic and memorable cartoons. While The Flintstones is a classic cartoon that ran before my time, I have watched a ton of reruns on Teletoon Retro. It is one of my favourite older cartoons to watch, along with Scooby-Doo and The Jetsons. I especially like when they have kids and Fred is always loosing Pebble. That time he took her to a boxing match was just priceless.

I did a little research and you get 166 episodes with all six seasons. That is an incredible amount of cartoon watching time for just $41. Reviewers are very happy with the box set and leave pleased comments like this one:

Absolutely great product! My only complaint (and it’s very minor) is that it is very hard to pull the CD’s from their covers and the last thing that I want to do is rip the booklet that they came it. The overall quality of the CD’s are fabulous; clear and crisp on the TV. I would definitely buy this again!

Another benefit to getting the box set over individual seasons (besides price) is the cool box that the collection comes in. At first, I thought it was a Flintstone-esque transistor radio, but I actually think it is a stone-age television after getting a better look at it. What do you think?

Either was this is a fantastic series at a great price. You will not find this cheaper anywhere else. As the box set costs over $25, you will receive free shipping. Amazon Canada is still saying it will “Arrive before Christmas” if you order now.

Borderlands: Pre-Sequel (Xbox 360 | PS3) Only $30 @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Borderlands: Pre Sequel (Xbox 360 | PS3) Only $30 @ Amazon.ca!

Borderlands Fan? Right now Amazon.ca has the Borderlands: The Pre Sequel for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for only $30. The PC version is priced at $39.99 which is still $20 lower than everywhere else. Not only is this 50% off of their regular price, but it is also $10 less than the previous lowest price we blogged. Amazon also ships your purchase for free if it is over $25, so you will get that too.

This may be your only chance to feel the moon’s low gravity without actually going to the moon. In every jump and stomp of this Borderlands: The Pre Sequel you will feel like you are walking on the moon. This pre-sequel is set to take place between the previous Borderlands and Borderlands 2 games. During this game, you will witness how the villain Handsome Jack transforms into the power hungry enemy that we know him as in Borderlands 2.

There are two new features as well as four playable characters in Borderlands: The Pre Sequel. The two new features include laser guns as well as items that have a certain cryogenic element to them. When an item is cryogenic, it can be used to either freeze or slow down your enemies.

The four new playable characters will keep the game interesting for you. Choose to be Athena the Gladiator, Claptrap the goofy robot, Nisha the Lawbringer, or Wilhelm the Enforcer. The possibilities are endless! You will probably remember these four characters as being bosses you battled in the previous Borderlands games.

Just to ensure that you are getting the absolute lowest price, I did a little price comparison at some other Canadian retailers who have this game:

Borderlands The Pre-Sequel is $59.96 @ Walmart.ca
Borderlands The Pre-Sequel is $54.99 @ Coscto.ca
Borderlands The Pre-Sequel is $59.99 @ FutureShop.ca

If you are a fan of first person shooters, then I would give this game a shot. No pun intended! Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was first launched on the 14th of October, 2014. The last time we blogged about this game title was just two days ago when it was $39.99 and I was amazed at the price then. So far, I have liked Borderlands and Borderlands 2 when I have played them.

If you purchase this game now, Amazon Canada states that it will arrive before Christmas. This would be a great gift if you have a teenage son or gaming hubby. Keep in mind that this game is rated M for Mature.

Sears Boxing Day Blowout Flyer NOW HERE! 3 Days Only Starting December 26th

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 10:13 AM

Sears Boxing Day Blowout Flyer NOW HERE! 3 Days Only Starting December 26th

Sears has released their Boxing Day Blowout flyer. The deals start December 26th and will run through December 28th. And we’ve got the flyer right here for your viewing pleasure! Start making a list of your favourites and make sure you get the best deals in your cart.

Sears is not disappointing with some splashy deals front and center for Boxing Day. Check out the ProForm 2.0 CHP Treadmill – Crosswalk 395 now $389.99. This treadmill would normally cost you $1299.99 but during the Boxing Day sale you can grab it for 70% off to start your new year off healthy.  Treadmills are often in the $900-$1200 range so this truly is a deep discount for this machine. Reviews are looking good on Sears’s site for this model. Most people like it except one poor person who could not get it assembled properly.

A workout sounds good to me after the big holiday meal and the holiday parties. To be able to exercise in my own home is a bonus. If I did not have an elliptical trainer waiting for me in the basement I would consider this trainer.

You can also outfit your kitchen nicely with this T-Fal Chef Series 10pc Cookware Set. This set was originally $499.99 but is now $99.99. There are many nice cookware sets on the market this time of year with great discounts but this one is a particular bargain. Sears has knocked off an additional $50 if you were to compare this set with similar sale stainless steel sets on the market.

Do not forget to count the lids in that set. The lids are all glass meaning you can peek in at what you are cooking without letting out the heat. I currently have metal lids that I cannot see through and I really miss this feature. There is also measuring marks on the inside of the cookware and the set is compatible with induction cooking.

After all the exercising and cooking plus the holidays I’m just ready to rest. Check out this Serta Perfect Sleeper Aurora III Tight Top Sleep Set. Originally $1,399.99 the set will be on sale for $419.99 and save you 70%. Boxing Day is a super time to pick up a mattress on a big discount like this. The queen price is the advertised price but all sizes are on sale.  The mattress is 10½” high and box spring is 9″ high so get out your measuring tape with your bedroom set.

The fabric is polyester to account for the Cool Twist Gel Memory Foam. I am not familiar with this foam, but it is supposed to help regulate your body temperature while sleeping and relieve pressure. I would check out this mattress but I might want to lay down on it in store first.

There is also a standard 20-year warranty on this mattress to ensure you get the full lifespan on this purchase. Boxing Day is a great time to pick up a new mattress. I purchased mine several years ago on a similar deal and have had no regrets.

You will also find some smaller clothing items on sale at Sears 25-50% off including:

  • Wonderbra bras and panties
  • Ellen Tracy bras
  • Chaps Men’s Underwear and other underwear varieties
  • Levi’s Men’s Jeans
  • Kids Converse hoodies, sweatpants and sweatshirts

Here’s a sample of what’s in the Sears flyer. The full version is here.

Future Shop Canada: Mophie Workbook iPad 2/3rd Gen Leather Case Was $50 | Now $5

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 10:06 AM

Future Shop Canada: Mophie Workbook iPad 2/3rd Gen Leather Case Was $50 | Now $5

If you’ve got an older generation iPad and would like a new case for it, I’ve got a steal of a deal for you. Get the Mophie Workbook iPad 2/3rd generation leather case from Future Shop for only $4.99, saving you $45! You can get black or white.

I don’t have an iPad, but we do have tablets and I know how important cases can be for them. With three boys running around my house, a tablet is bound to fall at some point or another, if not thrown as a game or during a tantrum. Either way, a case can protect your precious device. While this case is for a 2nd or 3rd generation iPad, I’m sure there are lots of us out there who have those. Maybe the case you have now is getting tattered. Maybe it isn’t as nice as this case. Maybe you could just use a second case for fun and whimsy. Either way, this case is only $5.

Not just a protective case, it also doubles as a stand and it allows you to tilt it at so many different angles. The front cover is magnetic and puts your machine to sleep when you close it and wakes it up when you open it. I wish my kids were that easy.

I searched the net far and wide for price comparisons, but it doesn’t look like too many stores sell this case. Best Buy has it on sale as well, but for $9.99. Otherwise, you can’t really get a case this cheap.

Considering cases sell for around the $30 range and up, this is a hot steal if you need this kind of case. If you don’t need a case, its no loss to you and you can move on down the page and find some other deals Future Shop Canada: Mophie Workbook iPad 2/3rd Gen Leather Case Was $50 | Now $5

You could also think about this for another tablet that isn’t an iPad, but has the same dimensions.

Shipping is free once you spend $25 at Future Shop, so you might want to check out other hot deals to save yourself that cost.

Royal Bank Canada Freebie: Free $50 Gift Card (Non-RBC Customers Only)

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Royal Bank Canada Freebie: Free $50 Gift Card (Non RBC Customers Only)

Which bank are you with? If you’re not with RBC, then you could score yourself a free $50 Visa gift card! Keep reading to find out more.

There is no purchase required to redeem this freebie. All you need to do is book an appointment to go chat with an RBC financial adviser about your banking needs and at the end of the meeting, the $50 Visa gift card will be yours.

Once the time comes to go to the appointment, make sure to bring a copy of your last banking account statement as the financial adviser that you meet with will review it with you in an effort to demonstrate how much better banking with RBC would be for you. In order to qualify for the promotion, you must have an active personal account (a chequing one) with any bank other than RBC.

Personally, I have been with RBC for over a decade now and I love everything from the customer service to the ease of online banking, etc. In case you’re curious, RBC’s app is also well-made and is easy to use. Both the site and the app are very straightforward and whatever you need to do gets accomplished quickly.

To give you an idea, chequing accounts at RBC start from $4 per month for 10 debit transaction with the RBC No Limit account all the way up to $30 per month for unlimited transactions and free overdraft protection with the RBC VIP Banking account. In between these two, you can also get either the No Limit Banking account for $10.95 per month with unlimited transactions and $4/ month overdraft protection or RBC Signature No Limit banking for $14.95 per month with both unlimited transactions and overdraft protection. All of these accounts also waive certain other fees, so make sure to check out RBC’s Banking Accounts page for an overview of all of these.

Even if you’re perfectly happy with your current bank, it’s definitely worth checking out what other banks have to offer every once in a while because you never know when you can get something better. This freebie is definitely a major incentive as well!

Moosers, which bank are you with? What are your thoughts on the bank you’re with?

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Unsure as to what to get someone on your Christmas list? Then impress your loved one(s) by making one of the following last minute Christmas gift idea. Best part of all is that these are all very frugal ideas and are guaranteed to cost less than if you were to buy them already made. Plus, it’s just that much more special if you make your gift yourself.

1. Candy Cane Hand Scrub

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Here’s an idea from Cutepolish that I actually plan on doing myself. It’s super quick, easy and looks like it could be very effective. Simply combine sugar, coconut oil and peppermint essential oil in a mason jar or container, mix and that’s it, you have a candy cane hand scrub. I plan on making mine in mason jar mugs, so that my friends can then re-use it for a drink.

2. Irish Cream Liquor

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Are you spending Christmas at someone else’s house? Then you can’t show up empty-handed! Make your own Irish cream liquor instead with the help of A Farm Girl In The Making‘s recipe. We all know how pricey good quality liquors can be, so the best way to save money is to mix your own drinks. For this recipe, you’re going to need Irish whisky, heavy cream, fat free sweetened condensed milk, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, vanilla extract and cold coffee.

3. Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

I love love love this idea! Although you could just walk into a store and buy a pre-packaged gift basket with different hot chocolate packets, it’s so much better if you make your own. To make it even more unique, follow Bubbly Nature Creations‘ instructions to place the hot chocolate mix into clear plastic fillable ornaments. If you really want to make your gift standout, then you could also paint the ornaments. For any of you with babies or kids, this is a great opportunity to make hand-print ornaments as well! 6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

4. Mason Jar Candle

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Have you ever received or given candles as a gift? Then can easily be tacky but not if you make your own! Something Turquoise has a very easy-to-follow guide on how to make your own mason jar candles that anyone is sure to appreciate receiving as a gift, especially if you also personalize the jar.

5. Beeswax Lip Balm

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Know someone who loves Burt’s Bees or better yet, love natural products altogether? Then make them lip balm from beeswax that is very similar to the Burt’s Bees one. Broke & Healthy has a very clear guide on how to make your own with loads of explanations and helpful pictures.

6. Bath Bombs

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

If you’re really stumped as to what to get someone for Christmas, it can be extremely tempting to walk into one of those heavily scented stores at the mall like Lush or The Body Shop Canada to get a skincare gift set but considering these gifts are more often misses than hits, make your own to avoid any mishaps. As you can see by Maria’s Self recipe, bath bombs are actually super easy and quick to make. Just make sure that the giftee enjoys taking bats first. 6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Amazon Canada: 50% Off Frozen Toys *HOT*

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 5:50 PM

Amazon Canada: 50% Off Frozen Toys *HOT*

Amazon Canada has discounted several different Frozen themed toys at 50% off the original price.

This is a great sale and the prices are incredibly hot.

This Disney Frozen Magiclip Small Doll Anna Giftset was $43.18 and is now $22.99. Most the small doll gift sets seem to retail around $45 to $49 at other retailers, so this is a fantastic deal.

While I blogged about this Disney Frozen Sparkle Anna of Arendelle Doll before, it has now taken another price dive down to just $12.49. Even on rollback at Walmart, the dolls are $14.94 so Amazon’s deal is certainly better.

This incredibly beautiful Disney Frozen Swirling Snow Sleigh is now $14.49, down from $34.99. The toy is actually 59% off, which is higher than all the others are. This toy will fit the mini dolls that you get with the small doll gift sets. The sleigh itself includes one Anna doll.

Missing out on an Olaf doll? This Disney Frozen Olaf Doll is now $9.99, originally $19.99. It is a great little toy to add to your gift with the dolls.

This Disney Frozen Ice Skating Anna is just $17.40, down from $34.99 at Amazon right now. Toys R Us has the same doll for just $37.97 and Walmart Canada has the same toy for just $34.99.

We blogged about the Disney Frozen MagiClip Flip ‘N Switch Castle and Anna Doll a little bit ago but it has gone through another price drop to just $12.49, from $24.99 retail.

Last but not least, this Disney Frozen Colour Change Anna Fashion Doll is just $14.99, originally $29.99. The doll costs $26.94 at Walmart Canada so this price is really to die for right now.

Unfortunately, most of these items are all Anna themed – so rather limited for anyone who is more of an Elsa fan. I do like the deal on Olaf though as it is a bit different from everything else.

All of these are incredible deals on Frozen toys. I know it is very late to be ordering toys for Christmas, but with an Amazon Prime membership, “you can shop until Dec.22 and enjoy unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping” so you will get your toys in time for the holidays. I have detailed before how you can get a free Student Prime or Family Prime trial.

Without an Amazon Prime membership, receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Home Hardware 2014 Boxing Day Flyer Now Live! (Now Through 3rd Jan 2015)

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 3:54 PM

Home Hardware 2014 Boxing Day Flyer Now Live! (Now Through 3rd Jan 2015)

I don’t know a town that doesn’t have a Home Hardware. I live in a fairly small town and we have one here. It is our go-to store for anything for the home and in fact, I had to go in there the other day to buy toys for a toy drive as there are no other spots in town for that sort of thing.

Home Hardware has started their Boxing Day sales already and we’ve got the flyer for you.

Some items of note include:

  • DeWalt 12 volt Li-Ion 3/8″ drill/driver kit was $184.99 and now only $99.97
  • 24″ snow pusher with a hardwood handle was $18.99, now $10.44
  • Ultrasonic personal humidifier was $29.99, now $14.97 – this would be great on your desk in the office
  • Benchmark Auto Lock locking plier set was $29.99, now $9.99
  • 6 outlet power bar was $10.99, now $3.66 – use this to plug in all your new electronics – great for stocking stuffers!

I really need a kettle, so I’m going to head in and pick up the 1.4 litre whistling tea kettle, which was $14.99, now $11.24.

I also could use more step stools in this house as the kids seem to steal them for whatever mischievous purpose they need them for and I can never find one when I need it. Regularly $10.99 and on sale for $6.57.

They’ve also got a huge in-store clearance going on, with up to 54% off select items.

With cold and flu season here, you might want to check out the Sunbeam 1.2 gallon warm mist vapourizer. These work wonders for kids and babies who just can’t sleep when sick. Regularly $22.99 and now $16.97, this is a good price for such a useful item.

Speaking of useful, it seems Home Hardware is a store of only practical items! You can save 54% on HDMI cables, which are great to stock up on, because these also seem to go missing without warning. Regularly $21.99 and on sale for only $9.97, that is one deal that you won’t pass up.

Some of these items you can actually order online and pick up in-store when you see fit. Others, you’ll just have to pop into the store sometime between now and January 3rd and hope your items are in stock and haven’t sold out.

Here’s the flyer!

Petsmart Canada: 50% Off Dog Beds

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Petsmart Canada: 50% Off Dog Beds

Petsmart Canada is offering 50% off a selection dog beds just in time for you to stick something comfy under the tree for your pooch. As per usual with Petsmart, you order online and pick-up in store.

There is a plethora of beds on sale and the prices cannot be beat! For anyone on a tight budget, these first few deals are for you. The Grreat Choice Pet Holiday Dog Bed was $21.99 and is now $10.99. For small to medium pets, this bed comes in assorted colours. The Grreat Choice Cuddler Dog Bed is just like the above bed but not in Christmas colours. Originally $21.99, this bed is also on sale for $10.99.

For medium-size dogs, there are quite a few good options. The Grreat Choice Corduroy Dog Bed is 33″ x 45″ in size and makes a comfortable pillow for your pet to sleep on. Originally $43.99, the bed is now on sale for $21.99. Kong also makes fantastic dog beds and you can choose from two different styles. Both the Kong Bed (1) and the Kong Bed (2) were $65.99 and are now on sale for $32.99. They can handle medium dogs up to about 80 lbs.

If your pet is a pampered prince or just needs a little extra comfort, then this Martha Stewart Pets Beautyrest Napper Dog Bed will be a big hit. These beds usually cost a small fortune but you can buy this one for just $38.49, originally $76.99.

These beds are good for more than just dogs – large cats can also enjoy the comfort of a dog bed. The smaller ones from Grreat Choice work well for large tomcats. We have two big boy cats that weigh in around 18 lbs each. Rather than pay twice the price for a large enough cat bed, we scored two dog beds for $10 each. The cats do not mind and they actually fit in the beds.

I know it can be inconvenient to have to go pick-up your order from Petsmart, but I am still very excited about this deal. It is nice to find such amazing deals online and be able to secure your savings without having to take a trip to Petsmart just in hope they still have some in stock. Too often, I have gone to buy something and it is OOS by time I get there. This way, it is waiting for me to arrive!

These are clearance beds so I am not sure when the promotion ends. The 30% off bed sale ends tonight, so it could end at the same time.

Nuvango Coupon Code: 20% Off Gift Cards

We are hitting and passing most of the shipping dates for Christmas so now is the time to look towards gift cards for any presents you are missing. Nuvango (formerly Gelaskins) is offering 20% off all gift cards before Christmas.

Click here to order a Nuvango gift card now

  • Coupon Code: 20CARDS
  • Discount: 20% off gift cards
  • Expiry: 24th December 2014

I like this promotion because it is a rarity amongst businesses: not many companies offer discounts on their gift certificates. In fact, when coupons show up for websites the fine print makes sure to exclude gift certificates.

You can order your gift card in whatever denomination you like. Celebrate December 25th by sending your loved one a $25 gift card. Here is some of the savings you can expect from popular denominations of gift cards:

  • $25 gift card for $20
  • $50 gift card for $40
  • $75 gift card for $60
  • $100 gift card for $80

Now, you can also buy these for yourself. If you are planing a Nuvango purchase in the future, why not save money up front with 20% off a gift card? Then you can combine the gift card savings with a sale, when one comes along, and you have just scored yourself an incredible deal my friend.

I really enjoy the art at Nuvango and have one of their hard cases on my cell phone and one of the screen covers they sell on the screen as well. While I see nightmare pictures of iPhone screens shattered beyond recognition, my phone is cozy and kept in one piece by Nuvango. I love my cover and haven’t really thought of another in some time. However, Brian Viveros‘ work is just so bad-ass that I am dying to get a case from one of his art pieces for my real bad girl days. War Child is one of my favourite of his pieces.

For something a bit more exciting and boundary-pushing, I would enjoy carrying around Tiger Girl (warning: nudity) by Javier G. Pacheco. The combination of the glowing-eyed tiger head and the milky-white ‘fragile’ nude female figure is just mesmerizing. I love the juxtaposition and i think we can all create our own stories as to what the image means.

All prices are in US dollars. The gift card will be delivered via free email delivery – straight to your inbox. Then you can print it off and gift it as appropriate.

Home Depot: Himalayan Salt Lamp $20 & Free Shipping

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 2:09 PM

Home Depot: Himalayan Salt Lamp $20 & Free Shipping

Purchase a Himalayan Ionic Natural Salt Lamp (11-15 lbs) for only $19.99 plus free shipping. This lamp originally cost $27.50 at Home Depot.

While this may not seem like a large discount on the lamp, this is a very good deal for several reasons. First, the lamp retails for much higher elsewhere. I found the exact same lamp for $34.28 at Amazon Canada. I also found other Himalayan Salt Lamps of the same size (11 – 15 lbs) at places like Well.ca for $34.49. The average price for an 11 to 15 lb (5 to 6.8 kg) seems to be the mid-$35 range, so scoring a lamp for only $20 is sweet. The free shipping is also very nice as this lamp weighs quite a bit.

Now, what is a Himalayan Salt Lamp all about anyway? Activated Himalayan salt is believed to aid in the reduction of electromagnetic pollution (like from electronics), by the release of negative ions. This is supposed to have numerous health benefits including relaxation, improved focus, and more. The question always comes down to – is this all hype or is it truly healthy? According to numerous experts – it is mostly just hype. As one article puts it:

Suggesting that a Himalayan Salt Lamp can generate enough negative ions to benefit your health is like suggesting that a farmer could water thirty acres of farmland with a hand-held spray bottle.

You get the point. However, the salt lamp has other benefits. The lamp creates a warm glow that can be very relaxing and help you reduce stress. Stress is like a toxin to your body so anything that reduces stress is very good for your body and your mind. The lamp is also soothing, sets the mood, is comforting, and can be downright enjoyable. As this reviewer says:

The warm golden glow of that light shining through the salt crystal is amazingly comforting. To me, it looks like the sun at sunset. I use it for a night light. The adjustable brightness control is ideal for the nights when I prefer a darker bedroom. Though, It would be beautiful and soothing in any room.

The Himalayan Salt Lamp also works through a placebo effect. That is when people believe that something works and thus they exhibit symptoms of improvement that align with their belief of how the thing should be helping them. It is cool how strong the power of belief is – it can heal your body and help you on the path to wellness.

Canadian Freebie: 3 Free Tea Bags @ Twinings Canada (EXPIRED)

Canadian Freebie: 3 Free Tea Bags @ Twinings Canada (EXPIRED)

Hop on over to Twinings Canada to request three free sample bags of tea!

I just love this freebie because it is free tea! I drink a pot of tea almost every day so this freebie gives me three days of wonderful tea to try. I do not having much experience with the Twinings brand, so this is a welcome addition to my tea collection. One of my favourite things about this deal is the choices: you get to choose which bags you will receive. Many samples are random selection so this is very nice.

Did I mention choice? Oh yes, you get to choose from 30 different teas from four different categories:

  • Black Teas
  • Chais
  • Herbal Infusions
  • Green Teas

I am a huge fan of chai tea so my first choice would probably be the Chai French Vanilla, thought the Chai Spiced Apple sounds so delicious as well. I might just have to get both of those and then only choose one other tea bag from the other categories. I really like chai tea in the winter because it is such a warm and flavourful tea full of spices. It is great for cold winter days and nights.

Here are some of the other amazing flavours that peak my interest:

  • Lady Grey
  • Pure peppermint
  • Goodnight Blend
  • Green Earl Grey

I usually hate green tea but I recently learned some secrets for brewing the leaf. First, you let the water sit after boiling for about five minutes. If you pour boiling water directly on green tea leaves, you are liable to burn the leaf, which produces a bitter taste in your tea. In addition, you want to be careful not to let the tea over steep. I usually leave my tea in the water until I am finished my tea, but green tea you should only leave in for 3 – 5 minutes (or however long the box says) and then take it out of the water.

I am so pleased with this freebie and I hope you are as well. Leave a comment below to let me know which three bags you chose! Samples will arrive in four to six weeks.

French Connection Canada: Cottage Cotton Coat Was $228 | Now $72

French Connection Canada: Cottage Cotton Coat Was $228 | Now $72

Looking for a great coat to dress up your outfits? French Connection has a stylish and classic cotton coat on sale for a great price. With a regular price of $228, this coat is on sale for $79.99. Use coupon code MYFCDEAL to get another 10% off and pay only $71.99. That’s a total savings of over $150.

Personally, I would not have paid full price for this coat. It is more of a light coat that will be a great throw on when you are cool or when you are running out the door. I see this being worn quite a bit in the spring, or in the office on the chilly days. I like that it is casual, but also dressy. White is also the perfect colour to throw over any outfit, especially when you love to wear all black. This will brighten you up!

It also has two front pockets, which is very handy if you don’t want to take your purse out with you. My mom just bought something similar to this because it is a great cover-up and has those handy pockets. I also like like that it looks just as good zipped up as it does unzipped.

The coupon MYFCDEAL will get you 10% off any sale item, but also 40% off any regular priced item. You don’t just have to use it on this coat, you can see what other deals are looming on French Connection to save you the most money.

I also completely love this city twill jacket as it has a military style and is just a coat you want to look at. I bet you don’t have anything like this at home. With a regular price of $168 and on sale for $99.99, you’ll score it for $89.99 once you add the coupon.

Men don’t have to miss out on the hot deals either and my hubby would love this FCUK zip thru, regularly $88, on sale for $39.99 and with a total of $35.99 once you add the coupon.

Shipping is a flat rate depending on your province, although there is a coupon code for free shipping, it depends on what you are buying as to which coupon would save you the most money. If you live in Ontario, you’ll spend the least on shipping – Northwest Territories, you’re out of luck!
