Evymama Canada Promo Code: 40% Off Winter Nursing & Maternity Clothes

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Evymama Canada Promo Code: 40% Off Winter Nursing & Maternity Clothes

For a limited time, you can save 40% off winter maternity and nursing clothes at Evymama with the code below.

Click here to shop @ Evymama.ca now

  • Coupon Code: WINTER40
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

When I was pregnant, I quickly realized a very depressing fact: maternity and nursing wear is not cheap. Perhaps it’s because the makers of these types of clothing know that their pregnant clientele basically has no other choice but to buy their clothes, especially when nothing begins to fit.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I spotted the Seraphine Luella sequin maternity dress. It looks absolutely stunning and is already sold out in most sizes! If you’re a size 4 or 8, then you can get this dress on sale for just $94.80 instead of its original price of $158.

I also found the Seraphine Ingrid lace cocktail maternity dress in black. It’s only available in a size 8 and with due reason as it’s gorgeous and is sure to garner plenty of compliments. With the code, it comes down to $190 (reg. $315).

Maternity pants are absolutely essential when you’re pregnant, so be sure to check out the last page of Evymama’s winter selection. There are a couple of great choices like the 9Fashion Urano skinny leg underbelly or the straight leg overbelly, which are price at $118 and get reduced to $70.80.

Shipping costs $15 but if you spend over $300, then your order will qualify for free shipping. If you live in Toronto near Evymama’s Danforth Avenue or Jane street stores, then you can also save on the cost of shipping by picking up your order.

If you need filler items to get to the $300 free shipping threshold, then check out Evymama’s last chance maternity and last chance nursing sections, where reductions start at 50% off.

Although it’s only available in large, I found the Daisychain maternity metro designer support belt on sale for just $12.50. It was originally priced at $49.99, which puts it at a 75% discount!

I absolutely LOVE my Daisychain support belt! Not only is it comfortable to wear, I get complimented on it every where I go. As someone who is all belly, this product has been a lifesaver to my back

As always, you can also find this Evymama coupon code in our forum.

$20 Off Roku 1 Streaming Media Player @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada – Now $40

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM

$20 Off Roku 1 Streaming Media Player @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada   Now $40

Right now at either Best Buy or Future Shop, you can pick up the Roku 1 streaming media player for just $39.99. It usually retails for $59.99. Shipping is free as well.

Back in November, Walmart had the Roku 1 on sale for just $10 at Walmart. That was a phenomenal price drop and as it turns out, was a massive error that was quickly corrected as well. Nonetheless, if you have been eagerly waiting for another similar price drop, then this deal from Best Buy and Future Shop is perhaps the best one that we’re going to see for a while. Anything can happen, of course, but if you have been wanting to get this useful device, then now is as good a time as any.

So what exactly is the Roku 1? It’s a media streaming player that provides access to over 450 channels with over 150,000 movies and TV shows. Plus, you can even use your smart phone as a remote with their handy app — you know, for those times that the remote falls on the floor and you’re too lazy to pick it up? $20 Off Roku 1 Streaming Media Player @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada   Now $40

Wondering what hockey has to do with the Roku? With it, you can also stream tons of sports live like NHL GameCenter, MLS live, UFC and more.

If you’re not very techy and are worried about running into difficulties setting the Roku up, then you will be happy to know that it’s super easy to install, as evidenced by this review:

Surpasses my expectations….Easy to set up, great sound, good image quality…Good product for the price.

One the biggest negative comments with the Roku is with regards to the Canadian content. It’s a media streaming device that is US-based, which then expanded into the Canadian market and as such, they are still in the midst of adding content. This reminds me of the negative feedback that the Canadian Netflix has generated over the years and yet, even it has significantly improved. So the way I see it is that the Roku is definitely worth getting on sale, especially since it’s sure to only get better and better.

Half Price Kid’s Snowsuits & Free Shipping @ Clement Canada! (Prices from $57)

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Half Price Kid’s Snowsuits & Free Shipping @ Clement Canada! (Prices from $57)

Have you heard of the Quebec based boutique, Clément.ca? I hadn’t heard of them until earlier, when I spotted that Kristy popped this deal up in our forums. I had a browse of the site and it looked great for kid’s clothing, so I thought I’d blog it up and share the love. Right now, Clément Canada is offering a 50% discount on all snowsuits, plus there is a bonus coupon code if you sign up to their newsletter – you should also be able to score free shipping on your order!

While Clément offer a free collect-at-store service, this is only useful to the Moosers in Quebec. To get free shipping on a $50 spend from Clément.ca, simply sign up to their email newsletters. I did that this morning, and I instantly received a unique free shipping coupon code in my email inbox. The code they sent me was INFOLETTRE-610WTE – I am assuming this is one time use only though, it doesn’t look like a code that everyone can use. If you make use of it, do let us know in the comments below.

Snowsuit prices start at only $57, so that means all snowsuits are going to come with free shipping to your home if you use the coupon code method mentioned above. However, sizing looks a little limited. E.g. The Gusti snowsuit in colour block or in camouflage red is $57 but it is only available in size 2 just now. But you can have a browse around and see if there are any more deals which will fit your kids as they grow. Check out these bargains:

Now, while the above snowsuits say “boys” on them, I don’t agree with this. They’re suitable for any gender! While my little four year old daughter happens to have bright pink snow trousers, I’d much prefer gender neutral ones… or even ones covered in dinosaurs, or something like that.

For a general price comparison of snowsuits elsewhere, it’s difficult to compare the prices above as it costs different amounts for each different brand. Also, some of the brands such as Blanc de Blanc, appear to be exclusive to Clément too.

When I added a snowsuit to my shopping cart, I also got a popup offer for personalised iron-on clothing labels. Clément are offering a set of 100 personalised labels for only $13 with free shipping. That’s pretty reasonable and could come in handy for labelling your kid’s items for school. To price compare, a basic 100 label pack from popular label store Mabel’s Labels would cost you $19, and you only get 40 for that price. The label deal from Clément.ca sounds good too!

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US)

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 11:00 AM

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US)

Here’s a little deal for the PC gamers! This weekend, you can buy Guild Wars 2 for a 75% discount on the original price! There are two editions on offer; the Digital Heroic Edition was $39.99 and it’s now only $10 and the Digital Deluxe Edition was $59.99 and it’s now only $15.

The above prices are in US dollars, so with the exchange rate, you’re paying slightly more in CA.

When Margarita last wrote a deal about Guild Wars 2, it was here, back in April 2014 when the game was on offer at 50% off, so 75% is obviously a sweeter deal. For the price you pay above, you’re getting the digital edition of the full game, and there are a few extras too, depending on which pack you choose. E.g. You get a Chalice of Glory in the Digital Deluxe Edition… obviously a few things to help you out when you are actually in and playing the MMO.

Here are some words from my partner – he used to be a big player of the first Guild Wars game, but he hasn’t got any experience of this second edition.

Geez, it’s been going a long time – it’s over two years since this game came out. There’s a new expansion pack coming (Heart of Thorns), it was actually announced yesterday. So this deal could allow you to get in and run through the initial game which should be bug free, by now! It’s very pretty… I want it.

I promptly said nope, he’s not getting it! There are so many unplayed games sitting on his Steam account, that he’s purchased when they were on special offer but hasn’t yet played. I’ve vetoed the purchase of Guild Wars 2!

I remember in the olden days, there was a World of Warcraft vs Guild Wars argument. World of Warcraft is by far the most popular nowadays, but Guild Wars still has a pretty big worldwide following.

Have you ever heard of the web TV series, The Guild? It’s a brilliant little show which came out a few years ago, when MMOs were getting extremely popular. Here’s the first episode:

There are now six seasons available to view, and it’s a great watch. If you’ve ever played any type of MMO, then the references in it will tickle your funny bone. But even if you’re not a player, you should still find the show pretty funny.

Joseph Nogucci: Up to 75% Off Winter Sale & $5 Off Coupon Code

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Joseph Nogucci: Up to 75% Off Winter Sale & $5 Off Coupon Code

Joseph Nogucci is offering customers $5 off their order with no minimum purchase required. Right now, Joseph Nogucci is hosting their Winter Sale with up to 75% off beautiful bracelets decorated with beads, gems, and beautiful stones.

Click here to shop @ Joseph Nogucci now

  • Coupon Code: FAMILY5
  • Discount: $5 off
  • Expiry: 31st January 2015

What makes this coupon so valuable is the coordinating sale prices you can combine with the discount code. My favourite item on Nogucci’s website is the White Howlite Terra Bella Necklace with 18k Gold finish. The white howlite is braided onto the necklace, interlaced with gold finished beads. Originally $120 US, the necklace is on sale for $39 US right now. You can use the coupon code to bring it down to $34 US. The matching White Howlite Terra Bella Bracelet would make a fine pair and a lovely Valentine’s Day gift. Originally $89 US, the bracelet is on sale for $29 US. You can only use the coupon once per order but it would be worth purchasing both pieces to receive free shipping.

The Winter Crystal PearlStone & White Agate leather wrap bracelet is already 75% off in the winter sale. While I would never pay the original price of $99 US, I think the black and white agate, pearl stone, other beads, and leather wrap look beautiful together and are certainly worth the sale price of $24 US. Of course, it comes under $20 if you were to use the coupon code just on this bracelet.

While white is a most beautiful shade, I do like a little more colour in my wardrobe. Jewellery helps to bring a wardrobe together and combine different colour pieces by representing both in a single accent piece. This Cuprite Terra Bella Bracelet was $89 US and is now $29 US. It features cuprite stones and a rose-gold finish. I prefer rose-gold to regular gold, so this bracelet is something I would wear.

Now, you can choose the Canadian currency at the top right hand side of the screen. I have quoted all prices in USD as that is the currency the items are originally listed in. the Canadian prices for the jewellery will fluctuate as the exchange rate between the Canadian and the US Dollar fluctuates.

There is a large change to Joseph Nogucci’s shipping policy as of this year. They now offer free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Orders under that are a flat rate of $8.

Walmart.ca Clearance: Various Spider-Man Toys Reduced To $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 9:00 AM

While browsing the old Walmart.ca clearance section this morning, I came upon a number of Spider-Man themed toys which all have had a large discount. There are three main items as the focus of this blog post. Here they are, as well as the discount amounts and final prices:

Walmart.ca Clearance: Various Spider Man Toys Reduced To $15 & Free Shipping

Save 44% on the Marvel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spider Vision Mask – was $26.94, now $15 with free shipping. When I first looked at this item, I thought it was just a basic mask, but it also comes with two light-up spider discs. The note made me chuckle – not for play in complete darkness. And this comment from a reviewer pretty much sums it up:

Very cool toy it’s adjustable so fits all ages and what kid doesn’t love Spider-Man! Plus I scored it on sale so that was a bonus!

Walmart.ca Clearance: Various Spider Man Toys Reduced To $15 & Free Shipping

Save 42% on the Marvel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Triple Strike Cruiser Vehicle – was $25.77, now $15 with free shipping. This toy is a 3-in-1 gadget, also turning into a web glider and a spider racer. This is exactly the type of toy I would have loved when I was young!

Walmart.ca Clearance: Various Spider Man Toys Reduced To $15 & Free Shipping

Save 37% on the MARVEL ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN Electro-Web SPIDER-MAN Figure – was $23.92, now $15 with free shipping. Walmart made me chuckle again with this description of the toy:

This is the French version. English sold separately.

Not to mention the fact that they had a typo in that sentence on their site, there’s no written language on the toy itself, so it really doesn’t matter what version of the toy you are buying. There is one review on this item on Walmart, and the reviewer says:

I wasn’t satisfied at all. Expected it to talk in English not French. My kid don’t even speak French. Kept it but not sure why.

My kid doesn’t even speak French. Well, the description does state that it is in French, so it’s possible that they didn’t read this and ended up disappointed when Spider-Man started saying Bonjour at them.

I know that we’ve just passed the holiday season and you guys probably aren’t on the lookout for toy deals as much as you were towards the end of last year. But, this is exactly the type of thing that is fantastic to buy now and pop it in your present cupboard for upcoming emergency birthday party presents. A Spider-Man toy is probably guaranteed to be a hit with any kid, boy or girl! And this is slap-bang in the middle of the price range that I am looking for when buying kid’s party presents.

Walmart.ca Clearance: Various Spider Man Toys Reduced To $15 & Free Shipping

On a similar vein, this Marvel Captain America Super Soldier Gear Battle Helmet has been reduced from $25.86 to $15 with free shipping @ Walmart.ca, that’s a 42% saving.

Hotwire Coupon Code: $20 Off $200

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Hotwire Coupon Code: $20 Off $200

Hotwire coupon codes are rather rare, so we are very pleased to present you with a $20 off $200 US coupon code valid on your next Hot Rate Hotel purchase.

Click here to book your next stay @ Hotwire now

  • Coupon Code: WINTER20
  • Discount: $20 US off $200 US
  • Expiry: 5th February 2015

As the US and Canadian flags share the same website, this appears to work for both Canadian and US customers despite the fine print saying “This offer is from Hotwire.com and is valid for Hotwire.com U.S. customers only.” When I was testing the coupon, it worked for me on a Canadian destination (Edmonton) reducing my bill by $20 US, which was equivalent to $25.30 CAN, on my order.

Hotwire bills in two different currencies. If you pay with your Visa or MasterCard, they will bill you in CAD dollars. However, if you choose any other payment method (Paypal, AMEX, Discover, etcetera), then you will be billed in USD.

Hotwire has some pretty cool features in many ways. I checked out one of their Hot Rate deals where you do not see what hotel you are getting but you choose the area and you choose the quality of hotel. I was looking at three-star hotels in the downtown Edmonton Area. Sure, you get your hotel assigned to you blindly, but I was looking at only $429.85 for a five-night stay after coupon. That works out to around $86 per night! That is a very good deal as three-star hotels in that area generally retail for $120+ a night. I am not even sure I could get a room with a separate bathroom through Airbnb for that price in downtown Edmonton. I might end up going with a hotel on my next trip out to visit friends and family.

While it has been a while since I stayed at a hotel, I have always found them quite the luxury. I especially enjoy the ones with a free breakfast in the morning. One hotel I stayed at in Seattle had a waffle maker, yoghurt, and some pastries as well. I think I ate $15 worth of my nightly stay just at breakfast.

There is a limit of one coupon per user account and per qualifying hotel booking. The $200 minimum must be before additional fees as the coupon is not valid on fees.

For this and any future Hotwire coupon codes, please visit our forum.

Breville One Touch Tea Maker Was $300 now $175 & Free Shipping @ Sears.ca!

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Breville One Touch Tea Maker Was $300 now $175 & Free Shipping @ Sears.ca!

If you’re in the market for a tea maker, check out the sweet price on this Breville One Touch Tea Maker from Sears Canada. Originally priced at $299.99, the sale price is now $224.99. But this weekend, there’s also a coupon code to take $50 off $200+ on select items and it brings this small appliance down to only $174.99 with free shipping!

Use this Sears coupon code 941612154 to get an extra $50 off the marked price there, to avail of this deal.

Now, there are probably a few people out there wondering why the heck someone would spend nearly $200 on a tea maker. Well, there are plenty of people out there with expensive coffee machines in their homes, why not have an expensive tea maker? I for one, am a big tea drinker. I would drink an average of around five cups of tea each day. I think that’s a lot… but it’s a habit which is hard to crack.

Then there is also the argument of the quality of teas – instant tea bags compared to loose leaf tea. Loose leaf is obviously superior quality, but it’s more expensive and time-consuming to prepare. With the likes of this Breville tea maker, it can prepare your loose leaf tea to perfection.

Here’s a video from Youtube about this particular model of tea maker:

The machine looks good, I am tempted! The timer sounds really handy – it means you can set the tea maker to come on at a set time in the morning, so there’s a delicious cup of tea waiting for you. They also say that you can use this machine as a variable temperature tea kettle, without the tea basket. In the video, they mentioned that it can be used for things like hot chocolate and instant noodles. I thought you put the instant noodles in the device, but I listened again and it just means you can boil water for different things then prepare them OUTSIDE the Breville device. Breville One Touch Tea Maker Was $300 now $175 & Free Shipping @ Sears.ca!

A review over on Costco.ca says:

I am in love with this machine… It’s only been a month and I am already experimenting with different tea leaves.

That’s what would interest me, to be honest. I’m pretty staunch in my tea drinking habits, I’d really like to try different flavours and I am sure this machine is the type of thing that would encourage me to do so.

As for a price comparison, the RRP on Breville.ca states $299.99, and you can buy it there for that price. The tea maker is currently selling for $224 on Amazon.ca, and the same at Future Shop and Best Buy.

Obviously not everyone is going to be interested in this deal… I think there are probably more coffee hounds than tea lovers out there. But it is a great price for this particular Breville tea maker model from Sears Canada.

Best Buy Canada: Up to 25% Off LEGO

Posted by on January 25, 2015 at 6:00 AM

Best Buy Canada: Up to 25% Off LEGO

Best Buy Canada is offering up to 25% off the popular LEGO brand of building blocks.

The LEGO City Police Pursuit (4437) is one of the best LEGO deals at Best Buy. Originally $19.99, the police set is now on sale for $14.99. The set includes a forest policeman mini figure, robber mini figure, police ATV, robber off-road vehicle, gold bar, money bill, and a crow bar. I price compared this set with other stores and here is what they have it for:

  • $19.65 @ Amazon.ca
  • $19.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $19.86 @ Walmart Canada (OOS)

Next, I chose the LEGO Ninjago Garmatron (70504) because it has a very good discount and looks to be a fun little device. Originally $49.99, the set is now on sale for $36.99, which means it also receives free shipping. The set includes three mini figurines, several weapons, the ice shooter, and the battle machine, Garmatron. I could not find the set many other places in Canada, Chapters Indigo alone seems to sell it and their price is $49.95.

I have not seen the Lord of the Rings for some time, but I am trying to remember a pirate ship in the movies. Do you remember one? Anyway, this LEGO The Lord of the Rings Pirate Ship Ambush (79008) was $129.99 and is now on sale for $109.99. This is a huge set and I just want it because three of the mini figures are some of my favourite companions: Aragorn, Legolas Greenleaf, and Gimli. I found this set at Chapters Canada for $129.95 and at Amazon Canada for $159.99.

This LEGO The Lone Ranger Silver Mine Shootout (79110) would also be a very interesting set to own. I wish I could just steal Tonto right out of the set, he makes the coolest looking Lego mini figure ever – complete with the dead raven. In fact, all the mini figures in this set look awesome. Originally $89.99, the set is now on sale for $71.99. Chapters and mastermind Toys both have this set still priced at $89.95, but Amazon Canada comes in a very close second at $72.19 from a secondary seller but there is only one in stock.

There are many other sets on sale as well. Some of these sets will sell out quicker than others; you know how popular LEGO is these days.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Walmart Canada: Wilton Eclipse Kettle Only $10 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 24, 2015 at 8:47 PM

Walmart Canada: Wilton Eclipse Kettle Only $10 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has the Wilton Eclipse Kettle on sale from $19.88 down to only $10 with free shipping.

I assume the ‘original’ price of this kettle at Walmart Canada is already a sale or rollback price. When price comparing I found the same kettle at Staples Canada for $49.50 at Kitchen Stuff Plus for $34.99. While Walmart’s kettle says Wilton and Kitchen Stuff Plus’s kettle says Copco – the Copco is part of Wilton Industries – they are the same kettle.

The Eclipse kettle holds 2 quarts of water. With a large mouth, it is easy to fill and easy to clean and comes with a tight fitting lid to keep your contents hot. This is a whistling kettle, and a one-hand release will lift the whistle to allow for safe pouring. Most people will purchase this kettle for the great price and for the soft-grip handle. Not only will it make pouring comfortable, it will keep your hand from coming in direct contact with the metal.

This is not an electric kettle, but some people prefer to heat their water the old-fashioned way. When I lived on my own, I used to have a stovetop kettle instead of an electric kettle. I am not sure if the water tastes different but the kettle certainly takes up less counter space. With all the appliances they sell you these days, it just seems that counter space is always at a premium.

There are not many reviews on this kettle, but the one on Walmart said:

Seems like a good kettle. As another poster said, don’t put the heat too high on it – that’s when you run into problems. I decided to limit the heat to 7 (out of 10) on the burner and it works great. I wouldn’t expect it not to work well, since it is only a kettle (not electric).

It is a very good idea not to turn the heat up to maximum. A kettle I had started to leak water out a seam at the bottom, and I think that was because it was turned up far too high all the time. Have a little patience with your kettle and the water will boil without needing to crank the heat up to maximum.

Walmart Canada’s price is well below the price of other retailers and has free shipping so snap this deal up while it is still available.

Online Stores with Free or Cheap Returns

Posted by on January 24, 2015 at 8:00 PM

Online Stores with Free or Cheap Returns

This is a guest post by a Mooser who loves Bargainmoose and checks it every day and does a lot of online shopping because of her location. Thanks Susan from Saskatoon!

As online shopping gains popularity in Canada, companies are becoming more competitive by offering free or low cost shipping. If you’re someone who shops online to save time, save money,  geographic limitations,  or just because, at some point you will receive something you wish you could return. You may be more inclined to order from an online store knowing you can easily make a return by mail or courier for a small cost, or even better, free.

The following are some points to consider regarding “free or cheap” online returns to ensure you are an educated purchaser. Keep in mind these points only pertain to online returns and do not consider returning the items in store.

Meet the Free Shipping Minimum: Most online stores offer free shipping, or free shipping with a minimum purchase. If you can return items at no cost or for a small return fee, ordering additional items to reach the minimum free shipping threshold is in your best interest.

Evaluate your “Return Fee Risk”: Some stores charge a small return fee or re-stocking fee. Evaluate the benefits of ordering from this company and ensure they outweigh the risks of having to return items and get charged this fee. For example, Club Monaco charges a $5 return fee. Chances are, if you were to shop in store, you’d spend more than $5 on gas and parking so the return fee is justifiable.

Minimize or Eliminate your Return Fee: One way to minimize your return fees is to return multiple orders in one parcel, then contact Customer Service to ask if you can just be charged one return fee. Also, inspect your items carefully when they arrive. For example if you ordered several sweaters and one has a fabric pull, the store will mostly likely accept the return of the damaged item, and anything else you decide to return, at their cost.

Return Policy Timelines: Be aware of the return policy timelines, if you must return your merchandise within 30 days or 60 days for example. Lululemon has the shortest return timeline I’m aware of at 14 days from the delivery date.

Sale items/Clearance/Final sale: Be informed of what you can and cannot return. Some online stores will allow you to return sale-price merchandise, but not clearance-priced. Also note which items are final sale, such as underwear.

Return Method: Note the return method the store utilizes and its convenience. The most commonly used shipping carriers in Canada are Canada Post, Fed-Ex and UPS. Do you live or work near a Canada Post outlet? Will you plan to take your parcel to a Fed-Ex or UPS store, or call to arrange a pick-up? Some stores include a pre-paid shipping label, others you have to request one. If you have to request a shipping label, it will either be mailed or emailed to you.

Now that you’re fully educated on merchandise returns, here are some clothing, footwear and accessory stores that offer free or cheap returns. Be sure to read the return policy for additional details prior to placing an order.

Free Returns:

Stores with minimal return fees:

I’d like to see The Bay offer free returns. You could also check out our list of stores that ship for free, as many of them might do free returns as well.

Bargainmoosers, do you have some stores to add to this list? Are there some stores you wish offered free returns?

50% Off Mamas & Papas Globe Magic Rocker @ Shop.ca – Now $200 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 24, 2015 at 6:00 PM

50% Off Mamas & Papas Globe Magic Rocker @ Shop.ca   Now $200 & Free Shipping

Prepping for a baby? The Mamas & Papas globe magic rocker is half off at Shop.ca right now. Instead of an eyebrow-raising price of $399.99, you can get it for just $199.53. Shipping is free as well.

I know that even a $200 price tag on a rocker can seem insane but I decided to blog it anyways because the discount is awesome and there is also the fact that Mamas & Papas is an incredibly renown and well-liked brand of baby products.

The prices on Mamas & Papas merchandise is known for being high but so is the quality threshold.

I have to admit that I was gifted a very basic chair for my baby and it has certainly done the job but I would most definitely have preferred this Mamas & Papas one because it looks absolutely comfortable. My baby has never fallen asleep in the chair we have but I’m sure she would have fallen asleep in a heartbeat in the magic rocker, especially since it’s a rocker in the true sense of the word. With two modes, it can rock the baby back and forth or side to side.

Two words to describe these two modes: pure heaven! Well I can only assume so anyways!

Here are some more notable features:

  • Light show when MAGIC card is inserted
  • MP3 compatible
  • Safety harness is secure and padded
  • Removable cover & head hugger (machine washable)

This rocker also has a lock feature that allows it to be locked into a stationery position. I’m particularly curious about this aspect because now that my baby is crawling and on the verge of walking, it has been absolutely impossible to place her in the chair we have. Even though we clip her in, she finds a way to wiggle out of it and I’m always scared that the chair will tip over when I’m not looking but a stationery lock would certainly fix that problem!

The fact that it’s MP3 compatible is also a great feature. Ours plays the same three songs over and over and over again… and let’s just that after a couple of months of hearing the same melody, we stopped turning ours on altogether.

Keep in mind that the required three C batteries aren’t included.

This Weekend Only: No Minimum Free Shipping @ Teavana With Promo Code

This Weekend Only: No Minimum Free Shipping @ Teavana With Promo Code

Love Teavana’s tea? Then you will be delighted to know that this weekend, you can secure absolutely free shipping on any order, with no required minimum purchase!

Click here to shop @ Teavana.com

  • Coupon Code: WINTERWKND
  • Discount: free shipping on any order
  • Expires: 25th January 2015

Do you ever just not feel like leaving the house, especially to get something so trivial as tea? I love tea and I drink a lot of it but I’m not the biggest fan of wasting gas just to go grab myself some tea.

With this being said, I love no minimum free shipping offers for this exact reason. There aren’t very many items on sale right now at Teavana but if you have a favourite tea and don’t want to leave the house to go get it, then this promotion is for you.

Browsing around Teavana’s site, I was looking for a new tea to try and stumbled on the Wild Orange Blossom Herbal tea. Although it’s one of the cheaper teas that you can get as it’s $6.98 for 2oz, the description makes it sound absolutely delicious with its hibiscus flowers, rose hip peels and citrus slices. Here’s what one happy tea sipper had to say about it:

Wonderful way to start the day with loads of energy! Great to get the stomach working after meals!

When I mentioned Teavana’s coupon code for free shipping to a friend of mine who loves their teas, she recommended the Moroccan mint green tea. It’s $4.98 per 2oz and features a refreshing spearmint flavour. I have to admit that I would normally not even consider trying a green tea with a minty flavour but according to my friend, it’s not too overpowering and is a tea that her entire office has been obsessed with recently. A happy reviewer had this to say about it as well:

I was hesitant to order this tea because I’m not a big fan of green tea. I know it has huge health benefits though so I though I’d give it a try. I LOVE THIS TEA! I drink a cup every evening and it just sets the mood for a relaxing evening. It is quite smooth and the spearmint is just the right level – not too strong but still present. I’ve recommended this to everyone who will listen.

Moosers, what is your favourite tea at Teavana?

While working over on our coupon section earlier today, I noticed that there were quite a few sales and deals happening from various beauty and cosmetics stores.
