Did you know that it is the last day to get totally free shipping from the online store of The Children’s Place? They have been offering free shipping, no minimum, all month… and this is the end of the month. To take advantage of that saving (saves you $8), I had another browse of the site this morning and discovered a great deal on this girl’s jacket. The pink and black 3-in-1 Jacket was originally priced at $99.95, and the sale price is $59.97. But using the coupon code below brings it down to only $47.98!!

If you apply The Children’s Place promo code 5CB7FY20, you will get the item for the discounted price of $47.98 with free shipping to your home. This is actually slightly more than half price – it’s a 52% discount. Read the rest of this entry »

There are two different options available for this low price, and you’ll have a few different shipping options to choose from as well.

Save Money When you Outlet Mall Shop

Posted by on August 30, 2015 at 8:00 PM

Save Money When you Outlet Mall Shop

These days, outlet malls south of the border are a little more expensive now that the Canadian dollar is so low.  Nonetheless, many people (including myself) still find shopping south of the border more economical than staying up here in Canada shopping in the malls.  I’m a big fan of outlet malls and actually tend not to go shopping in regular malls very much.  What can I say, I love a good deal and bargain!

Recently, they opened up an outlet mall near the Vancouver airport and although there were tons of people there, I still found that going to the states (near Seattle) was better… maybe it is the idea that I went so far to get something so it must be special…?  Maybe not!

Here are some ways to save money the next time you outlet mall shop:

Skip the Foreign Currency Fee

With the low Canadian dollar, it makes sense to try and avoid any extra fees associated with foreign currency transaction if possible.  For every foreign dollar purchase (e.g., US dollars) not only do you have to pay the currency exchange rate (which is not favourable in the first place when you charge it on your credit card), you will have to pay an additional 2.5% foreign currency transaction charge just for using your credit card.

Skip that 2.5% surcharge by going with a Chase credit card (like the Marriott card or the Amazon.ca card) or holding US dollars in a US dollar account and getting a US dollar visa (there aren’t many that do not have an annual fee though).  In addition, you can go with a Royal Bank cross border banking (credit and debit account), which is a bank account based in the United States, so that you can avoid the currency exchange and currency exchange fee.

Look for Coupons and Sign up to be a VIP

Yahoo Finance recommends looking for coupons or free membership and signing up for them.  For example, with the Premium Outlets VIP membership (free to sign up), you get a discount on certain stores and they will email you to notify you of any major deals.  It gives you the chance to score better deals at the outlet.

Know Your Store

According to Wisebread, not all outlet stores are made equal.  There are three different types of outlet stores.  An actual outlet store, a regular retail store disguised as an outlet store, and a factory store.  Wisebread states that actual outlet stores are the ideal, where there are things you would find in the regular stores but at a largely marked down price.  Examples of actual outlet stores they quoted are REI, Land’s End, and Coldwater Creek.  A factory store contains clothes that you might not find at the actual retail stores and the quality may be different (e.g., worse).  Examples of factory stores include you guessed it, Banana Republic and Gap.  Gymboree and Eddie Bauer are other examples.  Finally, the least palatable in terms of outlet mall shopping is the regular retail store, where you find regular stuff (and prices) that you would find at the regular store.  Old Navy, American Eagle Outfitters, and Sunglass Hut are examples, per the Wisebread article.

Don’t be Afraid to Leave Empty Handed

Another way to save money is to understand when to walk away.  That’s why having a NEXUS card is beneficial because you didn’t have to line up for 30 minutes to two hours to go shopping at the outlet mall.  Five minutes, maybe, but not two hours.  Money Sense magazine also recommends not going over the allowable limit, of course.  Check out this Bargainmoose post on allowable limits for groceries if you’re planning to go grocery shopping on your way back from the outlet.

Wait for the Special Occasions

Oftentimes, the outlet malls will post additional savings (e.g. save an extra 40% off this weekend) during special occasions and holidays, such as Thanksgiving, May long weekend, Labour Day.  As long as you can avoid the crowds (perhaps by getting there early and leaving early) these will be great opportunities to get something at the outlet on an even deeper discount than you anticipated.

Bargainmoosers, how do you save money on outlet mall shopping?

Heinz Pear Green Bean Mango Baby Food Recalled For Potential Spoilage

Posted by on August 30, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Heinz Pear Green Bean Mango Baby Food Recalled For Potential Spoilage

Oh no! I always get so worried when I see recalls on baby food, don’t you? Right now there is a recall on the Heinz Pear Green Bean Mango squeeze baby food. Why? For risk of spoilage, yuck! It is non harmful spoilage, but I surely wouldn’t want to feed that to my baby either way.

The recalled Heinz baby food was distributed throughout Canada, so if you have purchased the Heinz Pear Green Bean Mango Squeeze Baby Food recently, then keep reading because it was reported and recalled for microbiological non harmful spoilage. They say that it just effects the quality, but do you honestly want to feed your baby spoiled food? I didn’t think so. Read the rest of this entry »

FREE The Sound of Yo Yo Ma Album @ Google Play Store

I like cheap music, but FREE music is even better. Currently, The Sound of Yo-Yo Ma (Google Play Exclusive) Album is FREE to download. You receive eight songs from one of the most incredible cellists around. The cello is my favourite instrument, therefore I am eager to experience what Yo-Yo Ma has to offer.

This is a Google Exclusive album, which means you cannot buy it anywhere else. However, there is little need for price comparing as a FREE album is always substantially cheaper than any album you would pay for. Read the rest of this entry »

Fisher-Price FastFinder Carry All Diaper Bag Only $20 @ Walmart.ca

Fisher Price FastFinder Carry All Diaper Bag Only $20 @ Walmart.ca

I found a good deal on this Fisher Price FastFinder Carry All Diaper Bag. Originally $39.97, this diaper bag is now on sale for just $20. You can get this diaper bag shipped to your local Canada Post outlet for free (or a Grab & Go location).

I cannot quite believe the original price at Walmart because Toys R Us sells the Fisher-Price Fastfinder Diaper Bag for $74.99 and the Fisher-Price FastFinder Messenger Diaper Bag for $69.99. Essentially, this diaper bag and versions of it start at $70 elsewhere in Canada so I think Walmart’s ‘original price’ is already a sale price. Read the rest of this entry »

Brother Monochrome Laser Printer Was $140 | Now $60 @ Amazon.ca

Brother Monochrome Laser Printer Was $140 | Now $60 @ Amazon.ca

Do you know what I hate about inkjet printers? The ink dries up if you do not use it regularly and then you are left with a really ugly doorstop that won’t spit out a printed sheet of paper to save its life. Alternatively, you can invest a little more money into a laser printer and not have to worry about replacing ink cartridges. Amazon Canada has a fantastic deal on the Brother HLL2320D Monochrome Laser Printer. Originally $139.99, the printer is on sale for just $59.83 with free shipping.

I price compared the Brother HLL2320D Monochrome Laser Printer with several other online retailers. It costs $99.99 @ NCIX.com, $104.99 @ Tiger Direct Canada and $139.99 @ Best Buy Canada. Given that this printer is at least $40 less than the nearest competitor (and that is excluding shipping charges from NCIX), I figure this is a pretty hot buy. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by on August 30, 2015 at 11:15 AM

Amazon.ca: $110 Off Singer Sewing Machine   Now $79 & Free Shipping

**BUMP: This sewing machine just dropped in price ***

Amazon Canada has discounted this popular Singer 1304 Start Basic Everyday Free Arm Sewing Machine from $189.99 down to $79.94. This product is sold directly from Amazon but will take one to two months to ship. Now in stock. Thus, it will not be the first sewing machine you see through the following link. Rather, it is the top link under the ‘add to wishlist button’. The Singer sewing machine qualifies for free shipping as it costs over $25.

I remember one time when we had a survey of what kind of deals people would like to see, one woman mentioned she needed a new sewing machine. Sewing machines are pretty large investments retailing for hundreds of dollars often. Read the rest of this entry »

*HOT* KNEX Titanfall Angel City Escape Building Set Was $50 | Now $20 @ Walmart

The K’NEX brand of toys is well loved for being a building set of a different sort. This K’NEX Titanfall Angel City Escape Building Set is currently a fantastic price… originally $49.93; the set is now on sale for just $20. The last time I tried to blog one of these sets it sold out before I finished writing the deal up! You can get this building set shipped to your local Canada Post outlet for free (or a Grab & Go location).

This set comes with 541 pieces to assemble into the greatest city ever.
