Point Zero Canada: Men’s Ultralight Vest Was $66 | Now $33 & Exclusive Free Shipping

Posted by on February 28, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Point Zero Canada: Mens Ultralight Vest Was $66 | Now $33 & Exclusive Free Shipping

With the “warmer” temperatures making their way into March, you’ll want to shed your heavy layers and replace them with something lighter. Check out this packable ultralight vest from Point Zero. Regularly $66, it is now half price at $33. You can also use our exclusive coupon code MOOSESHIPPING to get your order shipping for free without meeting the $75 minimum.

This vest would be great if you are planning to head south over March break. You don’t want to pack a heavy winter coat in your bag that will take up a ton of room, but you’ll want something to throw on when you get back to Canada. Trust me on this one. Once on my way to Jamaica in January I left my winter coat in my vehicle, but I didn’t know I had to shuttle to another part of the terminal via a bus that was not really heated. I froze my butt off. A vest similar to this would have kept me a little warmer. You just never know when you need that extra layer, even in the warm south.

Why it is great to take with you as well is that it is “packable”, which means it folds up really small and nice! Even still, it is insulated and water-resistant and meant to keep you warm and dry when you need it to.

I like the look of this vest and I think I’m going to get it for my husband. He likes to layer and keep warm and would probably wear this throughout May and even some summer nights.

There are four colour choices – black with a charcoal interior, charcoal with a red interior, red with a navy interior and royal with a charcoal interior. Each has at least most sizes still available, but a few sizes are sold out on the more popular colours.

I couldn’t find this vest at any of the stores that sell Point Zero, but $33 and free shipping sounds like a great deal to me on a quality brand like Point Zero.

Chapters Indigo: Great Scott Wrap Was $72 | Now $28 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Chapters Indigo: Great Scott Wrap Was $72 | Now $28 & Free Shipping

Chapters Canada has discounted the warm and cozy Great Scott wrap by Echo Design Group from $72 down to just $28. As the wrap costs over $25, it will also ship for free to your home.

There are two colours to choose from red or purple. This is a traditional drape scarf in a lovely pattern. The ‘red’ is actually primarily white, grey, and black with red highlights throughout. This is my favourite colour as the black and white primary colours make this a more versatile piece than the plum. The plum truly is purple, with blue, black, and grey tones throughout as well. The pattern is a classic ‘scottish’ plaid.

These wraps are designed to keep you warm during the winter, but they also work well for cool summer evenings and cold spring days. There is a lot of this scarf to curl up in as well. The wrap measures 72″ long by 17″ wide. To put that in perspective, the scarf is 6 feet long! That is the height of my father and positively dwarfs my short frame. Because this scarf will be draped over your shoulders, the length will cover a good portion of your body. This is the perfect wrap to curl up with while watching TV or Facebooking late into the night.

Both wraps are made of acrylic and care instructions suggest dry clean only. I find that most dry clean only items can be hand washed in a sink (cold water only) and then laid out to dry. I am not sure if you could do that with this scarf, but you might want to try it if the thought of a dry cleaning bill does not make you happy.

I checked out the manufacturer’s website, where similar Great Scott wraps retail for $68US. Chapters Indigo’s price is certainly the best. Now, there are no reviews for the scarf right now. So, if you own one of these scarves, please leave a comment sharing your experience and thoughts with other Moosers.

Thank you to Mooser Felicia for posting this deal in our Bargainmoose forums.

Carter’s OshKosh Canada: Girl’s Columbia Snow Jacket & Pants Was $175 | Now $87.49 + Shipping

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Carters OshKosh Canada: Girls Columbia Snow Jacket & Pants Was $175 | Now $87.49 + Shipping

Do you feel embarrassed walking with your daughter in her tattered and worn snowsuit that might be just a tad small? Carter’s OshKosh has a great deal on the Columbia snow jacket and pants with a regular price of $175 and is now on sale for $129.99. Even better, they’ve got an extra 25% off clearance items, which will discount in your cart, bringing the total for this snow set down to $97.49. But lets go one step further and add our exclusive promo code CAOKBM1 for another $10 off, bringing this snowsuit down to just $87.49.

Columbia is a name I trust in cold weather wear, especially for my kids. My middle son absolutely despises the cold. When he was a baby he’d start acting like he couldn’t breathe in October weather. He wears 12 blankets to bed and starts bundling up for winter before Halloween. I knew that I’d have to make his outerwear the kind that would keep him extremely warm or they’d never get him out for recess. I immediately looked to Columbia for his snow pants and jacket. I paid a bit of a premium, but it is worth it knowing my little guy is not chilled at all during this ultra-frigid temperatures that kids are forced (in a good way) to go out in.

This snow jacket and pants is only available in purple and in sizes 8 or 10/12. If you have a grade 2-5, those sizes may fit them, depending on what they normally wear.

The jacket is actually called the crash out jacket and I’ll show you why this is a fantastic deal. I found the jacket alone selling for $109.99 at Columbia Sportswear. Otherwise, I didn’t see it anywhere else in Canada.

The pants are the Starchaser Peak II pants and I found these in a different pattern at Sportchek, selling for $34.99. That same pattern sells for $69.99 at Columbia Sportswear.

This way from Carter’s OshKosh, you get the entire set in a cute pink/purple for less than you’d pay separately.

You do have to pay for shipping, which is a flat rate of $8, so you might also want to check out what else is on clearance for that extra 25% off and make the shipping fees more worth it.

Shutterfly: FREE 8×11″ Hardcover Photo Book ($40 Value) + $9 Shipping

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Shutterfly: FREE 8x11 Hardcover Photo Book ($40 Value) + $9 Shipping

Shutterfly is offering a free 8″ x 11″ guest book for brides-to-be or any other 8″ x 11″ hardcover photo book to anyone who wants a free book! The photo book retails for $39.99 US, so you are saving a good chunk of money. However, you will have to pay $8.99 US for shipping.

I just skipped the part where you like Shutterfly on Facebook and took you right to where you request the unique coupon code you can use for a free photo book. All you need to do is click “Get Your Code,” allow the app to access your Facebook information, and then the unique code will be generated for you. Make sure to copy and paste that coupon code somewhere safe, as it will not be emailed to you.

This randomly generated code can be applied to any 8″ x 11″ hardcover book. it does not need to be the guest book that the promotion mentions. This offer is to promote their guest book, that is why it so so heavily referenced in the promotional material. According to the fine print:

Offer is good for one free 20-standard finish page 8×11 hard photo cover photo book

All funds are in USD and shipping costs still apply. For this size of book, you will pay $8.99 for shipping. Given that you are getting a 20-page hardcover book for free, I think that is a worthwhile expenditure. Most free book promos are for tiny 6×6″ or 8×8″ softcover books. You never see them for the larger hard covers.

There are two different expiry dates you need to be aware of. First, you need to get your code by end of day on the 28th February 2015. Then, you need to redeem that code by end of day 11th March 2015. That is not a large window of time, but for a free book I think 11 days is not a bad period.

All additions like extra pages or upgrades like higher quality paper will cost you additional money if you choose them. There is a limit of one coupon code per person / account. This photo book might make a good gift for relatives, friends, or even yourself. Record a fun weekend, fantastic birthday party, or important date by making a photo book for the event.

Clarins Private Sale: Super Restorative Day Cream Was $115 | Now $80 & Up To 40% Other Favourites

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Clarins Private Sale: Super Restorative Day Cream Was $115 | Now $80 & Up To 40% Other Favourites

Clarins is having a super secret sale that I’m going to let you in on. They’ve got up to 40% off a number of their best products and after shopping around, I’ve found that there are some pretty hot deals. The Super Restorative day cream is on sale and definitely a deal you don’t want to miss. Regularly $115, it is now down to $80.50.

As we age, I find our beauty regime changes. We don’t mind spending top dollar on products that actually help our skin. I’ve been looking at myself lately wondering what I should do with my tired looking skin. I think I need to up the ante and pay more than $20 for my day cream. With the heat blasting all day at my house, my skin is rebelling and is super dry and dull. This cream says it visibly corrects deep lines. That sounds good to me. It has so many great reviews too:

I have been using the super restorative line for several years and love it. I have tried other brands but nothing compares. I am in my late 40’s and this gives my skin the perfect amount of moisture without feeling greasy plus I love the way my skin feels after I use it. I am hooked for life!

If you like night cream, that one is also on sale, for just $1 more. Regularly $117, you’ll get it for $81.90. If your skin is super dry, you’ll want the very dry skin formula.

Just to show you what kind of deal this is, I shopped around and found this item for $122 at Hudson’s Bay.

There are quite a few other items on sale during this sale and another I’m really interested in is the instant light eye perfecting base. Dark circles are plaguing me and I want them gone! Regularly $26, it is now $15.60.

Clarins offers free shipping on orders over $75, so you’ll get that bonus with the creams. You’ll also get three free samples with every order.

Walmart Canada: Wolf Children [Blu-Ray + DVD] Only $19.97 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Wolf Children [Blu Ray + DVD] Only $19.97 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada has a special deal on a recently released Japanese anime title: Wolf Children. The Wolf Children [Blu-Ray + DVD] set is on sale for just $19.97 with free shipping.

Many people might wonder why I chose to write about this movie. Well, it is a very popular anime movie that has garnered a lot of attention and a lot of awards already. Among the awards, Wolf Children has won:

  • 2012 Mainichi Film Award for Best Animation Film
  • 2013 Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year
  • 2013 Animation of the Year award at TAF
  • 2013 Audience Award at New York International Children’s Film Festival

That is just a start; the film has won several other awards as well. On Rotten Tomatoes, Wolf Children has an amazing 93% rating, which is akin to Studio Ghibli’s masterpiece: My Neighbor Totoro.

The story line is simply beautiful. a young college girl falls in love with a man, who is part wolf. She accepts him as he is and they have two children together. The rest of the story is the heartwarming tale of a mother trying to raise two part-wolf cubs on her own. It is absolutely endearing and you will probably cry once or twice during the movie (or at least sniffle a few times). This is one of the most popular anime films out right now, and the price is the best I have seen in months. As one reviewer said:

A beautiful story for all ages. Delivery was really fast and since this was not readily available anywhere else, I was thrilled to be able to purchase from Walmart on-line.

I price compared the Wolf Children [Blu-Ray + DVD] set to other retailers. Future Shop and Best Buy both have the film for $26.99 and it is sold out on both sites. I did find Wolf Children at Amazon Canada for the same price as Walmart, but the free shipping minimum of $25 makes it not as good of a deal. Right now, Walmart Canada has limited stock so I suggest purchasing sooner rather than later.

I would be remiss to blog about a movie like this without including the trailer for it. Below, you can watch a synopsis of the story line and see the beautiful art that accompanies it.

You can also watch the full movie on Youtube, to see if it is a movie that you wish to add to your collection. Here is the link to the full film. I am going to watch it later today to see if I am going to buy the film.

Browns Shoes: Edriana & Elmira Shoes Were $148 | Now $32 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Browns Shoes: Edriana & Elmira Shoes Were $148 | Now $32 & Free Shipping

Browns Shoes has a vast clearance section with an extra 20% off select sale styles. On top of that, they are offering free shipping with no minimum for a limited time only. The Edriana and Elmira high-heel shoes are currently on sale from $148 down to $39.98. After the extra 20% off (in cart), each pair of shoes comes down to $31.98 with free shipping.

Elmira

The Elmira shoe is made of satin and features a sparkly ring of jewels on the toe. This accent offsets the satin beautifully. The heel measures 100 mm (roughly 4″) so these shoes are best for women who know how to walk in high heels. I have not perfected walking in anything above 3″ yet. You have a choice of black satin or silver satin. The Elmira satin pump is available in silver or black. The silver is nearly sold out, but there are still five or so sizes left in the black.

Edriana

Similar to the Elmira above, the Edriana is also a satin pump with a 100 mm heel. Rather than a ring of jewels embellishing the open-toe area, the Edriana has a ruffle design with a band of matching rhinestones. Out of the two, the Edriana is my favourite – I just have a think for ruffles. This black shoe is still available in three sizes: six, eight, and nine.

Both of these shoes are an excellent deal at approximately 78% off their original price. With free shipping, you also save an extra $5. While there is a standard offer of free shipping with a $198 minimum, it is hard to reach that minimum with deals like this.

While these pumps are the main deal, I also wanted to highlight a few other good deals right now. In the extra 20% off section, there are plenty of men’s shoes, women’s shoes, and handbags to choose from. For a simple handbag, you can purchase this Browns Leather Purse. Originally $120, the purse is currently on sale for $59.98. Once you add it to your cart, it comes down to $47.98. For a simple black leather purse, this is an excellent deal. There are also a few purses that are more expensive (and a few brand names) to choose from if your budget allows.

Shoppers Drug Mart: $10 iTunes Voucher with $50 Spend (In-Store)

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Shoppers Drug Mart: $10 iTunes Voucher with $50 Spend (In Store)

Shoppers Drug Mart has a really cool promotion in store this weekend that I wanted to highlight. Spend $50 or more in store and you will receive a promotional card for $10 worth to spend at iTunes. The promotion runs the 28th February to the 1st of March – two days only.

The promotional card will have a code on it that you must redeem right here by the 22nd of March 2015. When you redeem your promo card code, then you will be given a $10 iTunes e-voucher. This is a digital version of an iTunes card so you can redeem it at the iTunes store on whatever you like.

Quantities are limited, that is why I am blogging this deal a day early. Often when Shoppers Drug Mart gives away $10 cards, they have a $75 minimum (sometimes $50), and the gift card tends to be for Tim Hortons or some other consumable good. I like this deal because the minimum is reasonable and you receive 20% of the value of your purchase back in credit for iTunes.

In addition, while iTunes is a digital world, you still get something you can keep instead of just to consume. If you buy an album or a movie from iTunes, then you can enjoy it the rest of your life instead of just drinking the credit away. I buy a ton of music on iTunes (in fact, I have bought five songs and an album this week), so this is my kind of promotion.

It is easy to spend $50 at Shopper Drug mart. Often they are the cheapest place to buy milk (according to my partner), and with their combination of basic food necessities, chocolate, vitamins, and personal care it is easy to spend $50.

On iTunes, there are always great albums and more to spend credit on. I was just looking yesterday, and found some good deals.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack – $6.99
  • Frozen Soundtrack – $6.99
  • Dark Side of The Moon (Pink Floyd) – $7.99
  • Ghost Stories (ColdPlay) – $7.99

Dark Side of the Moon is a legendary Pink Floyd album that I am about to purchase. I have listened to Ghost stories by Coldplay. It is a solid album, but just not my type. Both the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Frozen soundtrack are quite popular right now and at a great price.

Free Stickers from Skull Candy

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Free Stickers from Skull Candy

I like the fun skater-style stickers I have seen from Skull Candy, but never seem to get my hands on any. Now you can grab a few of your own for free! You must send a self addressed envelopes, so this deal will cost the price of two USA stamps, $2.40.

Skull Candy sells headphones, ear buds and speakers. The company has a fun culture with a loyal following from a variety of people, especially skateboarders, snowboarders, extreme sport enthusiasts, DJs and a variety of other musicians. Their electronics are well known in the industry for great products with fun and funky designs. They have a loyal group of followers.

Want to get in on the Skull Candy culture? For the cost of two USA stamps, you can request some fun stickers from Skull Candy. I usually buy my stamps in a book as I have family in the US. If you were to buy two stamps they would cost you $1.20  per stamp according to the current postal rates to mail a letter to the USA. You must buy two stamps to send this to the states, as that is where the address is listed.  Technically this will also cost you two envelopes, but most of us have some of those already at home.

Here is the address to send your self-addressed envelope:

Skullcandy Free Stickers

1441 West Ute Blvd. Suite 250

Park City, UT 84098

Skull Candy stickers have most recently been spotted on the boards Canadian Slope Style Snowboarder Marc Mcmorris who won gold in the 2015 X Games. Norwegian Snowboarder Silje Norendal how also won a gold medal at the recent 2015 X Games was spotted with a Skull Candy sticker on her board. Stick your sticker on your snowboard, skateboard or on a binder for a bit of Skull Candy style.

I assume these stickers will have the skull candy logo. That means most likely the stickers should be the image of a skull. Skull candy might surprise you with some other designs, they do not specify what the stickers look like. They also do not mention how many stickers they will send, but I have heard rumor around the internet that they will often simply fill the envelope with as many as they can send with your stamp. Send your envelope and wait a few weeks for your surprise!

Free Bag of Premium Coffee from HP Digital Print Technology

Free Bag of Premium Coffee from HP Digital Print Technology

Need a pick me up? HP Digital Print Technology is offering a free bag of premium coffee. Simply register and your free coffee will be on its way soon.

I love a good cup of coffee and I bet you or someone you know does too. I will never pass on a free cup of coffee. This offer is intended to show of HP’s wonderful print quality. The packaging on the coffee is printed using HP Digital Print technology. These look similar to me to the bags of coffee that you find in a hotel next to the coffee maker. I suspect they are similar in size but HP does not specify.

Now this offer does not come without its stipulations. The offer is eligible for individuals in the print industry in Canada. HP specifically mentions graphic designers, anyone who provides print services or print brokers. This offer is not limited to these specific roles, but they intend the offer to be for those in the print industry. When you fill out the form, it does ask for your business name. I wrote independent contractor in both the company and job title line. The form went through right away with no issues.

The form also gives you options so HP can contact you, with options that include by e-mail, phone or by mail. I suggested they could contact me by mail only but they also give you a do not contact me option. On the front page HP also mentioned that if you sit down with one of their reps, they will hand deliver a cookie to you. They do not give an option to sign up for said cookie presentation. I assume by checking that they can contact you, one of their representatives will be in touch trying to set up a meeting that would include the cookie. Once you finish filling out the form, the page will then redirect you to see all the different printing options HP has available for commercial uses.

Enjoy the coffee and admire the printed bag. Maybe you need some commercial printing done. HP could be your next solution.

Sears Canada: Beautyrest Halifax Tight-Top Sleeper Now Only $150 (Expired)

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 8:54 AM

Sears Canada: Beautyrest Halifax Tight Top Sleeper Now Only $150 (Expired)

A while ago, I posted a fantastic deal on mattresses at Sears. Unfortunately, there was something wrong with their system and these were all price errors and Sears cancelled all the orders. This infuriated me, but I’ve since learned that for your trouble, if you complain, you’ll be rewarded with a gift card. While that isn’t the best consolation for not getting an amazing deal on a mattress, it could make it worth your while to try for this mattress deal and if it is cancelled, ask for your free gift card for your trouble. Today’s deal at Sears may or may not be a price error, so if you are in the market for a new mattress, they have the Simmons Beautyrest Halifax tight-top sleeper in king or queen on for only $150.

This mattress is a firm support mattress with two quilted layers and two comfort layers. Basically, it looks like a good mattress from a quality name in mattresses – Simmons.

The shipping to your home is going to be about $70, so factor in this cost, which is standard for this sort of large purchase.

If you like Serta, I also found a similar deal, although only on the double or twin size. The double plush of the Serta Slumber Keele foam pillow-top sleep set is $300 but the firm sells for $1559.99. The twin firm is $150 with the plush selling for $1999.99. I find it interesting that the regular price of the twin is more than the double, telling me that the regular price is also an error. Either way, this is a good deal on this size of mattress, regardless of regular price.

If you don’t want to gamble on price errors and just want a fantastic price on a mattress, there are plenty on clearance at good prices. This Sealy Malta II tight top sleep set starts at $359 for the set in twin in double up to $679.95 for the king.

BOGO General Admission @ Landmark Cinemas (Printable Coupon)

Posted by on February 26, 2015 at 9:30 PM

BOGO General Admission @ Landmark Cinemas (Printable Coupon)

3, 2, 1, it’s movie time! Starting March 1st, you can use the printable coupon available at the link below to get a free movie ticket with purchase of a general admission.

On the coupon itself, you will see in the upper right corner that this BOGO offer is only valid on March 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th. The third of March is completely skipped because of it being Tuesday, also known as Cheapie Tuesday, during which all admissions get automatically slashed in half anyways.

Not sure what to watch? “Focus” is coming out on February 27th. It’s odd because personally, the only time that I have seen any kind of promotion for it is today on TV. Even my hubby who is an incredibly huge movie buff was surprised to see Will Smith in another movie given that his last two roles were not main ones at all. He played a judge in “A New York’s Winter’s Tale” and an ESPN reporter on “Anchorman 2″ before that. It’s a romantic dark comedy that focuses on the story of Nicky, a con-man who gets sidetracked by a young woman – surprise, surprise!

Speaking of a romantic movie, you could also check out Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s of course been highly hit or miss at the box office, with some movie viewers leaving the middle of the viewing, others love it and even more people than that boycotting. In any case, if it’s your cup of tea, then that’s another choice!

Another movie that could be interesting to watch is The Lazarus Effect, a thriller with Olivia Wilde and Donald Glover. Starting on February 27th, the plot centres around a team of medical professionals who find a way to resurrect the dead. However, when they are successful in bringing back their lead researcher back to life, things go unexpectedly haywire with a potential for the supernatural. It’s labelled as thriller, but judging by the description it does seem to have a tad of horror injected into it as well.

Moosers, which movie are you most excited to see at the box office @ Landmark Cinemas?

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Posted by on February 26, 2015 at 8:00 PM

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I love my tablet and phone, but  I do not like paying extra for all of the nifty accessories. While I feel strongly a good case is important to protect my device, I try to limit my accessory purchases. No need to do without those holders and chargers, hack it together instead. Here are some great DIY Accessories for your tablet or phone that you can make much cheaper than buying.

Wood Charging Station

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

This unique handmade docking station will look super chic in your house, or is fancy enough to give it as a gift. Check out this hack from Scarlett Words to create a simple charging station from a slice of wood and a lightning cable. A handmade docking station like this one would run $50-$80. This hack could easily be adapted to charge any device. Attach a small portable speaker and you can also jam to all your favourite tunes.

Tablet Holder For Your Kitchen

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I do not use paper recipes very often anymore. I am always consulting my tablet or phone for new recipes to use in the kitchen. Check out this solution to spilling the flour on your iPad from Mamie Jane’s. This beautiful tablet holder made from an upcycled wood cutting board, a child’s block, and a scrabble tile holder is just my style. Beautiful and chic, no one will know you made it yourself instead of spending $40-$50 on a similar holder.

Bling Case

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Love the look of a case covered in bling? I hate that $25-$50 price tag that usually goes with it. Use the tutorial at Crafting Rebellion instead to create a super shiny case on a budget. Pick up a less expensive case at the dollar store and let your glue and jewels do the magic.

Touchscreen Compatible Gloves

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Picture this, you are out in the snow and something funny happens. You whip out your phone and your hands freeze as you try to snap the perfect shot. Rewind that scenario and turn your favourite gloves into tech gloves with this cool hack from natalme on Blogher. With a needle, metallic thread and your favourite pair of gloves, in just a few minutes you can make any gloves touch screen responsive. This blogger suggests special conductive wire, but it is possible to use any conductive metallic thread. Test the thread in a shop by holding one end of the skein while brushing the other end on your phone to see if it responds. A cheap pair of super thin gadget gloves will cost about $10-$15. A nicer pair that will keep your hands warm all winter can easily cost $40-$80.

Tablet Mount For The Car Headrest

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Blackcabbit has a great solution to turn your iPad or other tabler into a movie theater for your kids on long trips. Using some elastic and a few other small items, this dad creates an entertainment system that stays put. This is perfect if your kid falls asleep during movies on car rides. Most commercial headrest mounts range from $25-$40. I made a similar mount for my daughter before our last road trip and it worked perfectly.

Trick Out Your Earmuffs

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

If you spend some time commuting in the cold, you need to make these tricked out earmuff headphones from Brit+Co. These earmuffs do require some basic sewing skills, but even a novice sewer like me should be able to complete these. Make yourself a pair in any style instead of splurging for a $20-$65 pair.

Project Photos and Videos On Your Wall

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I can remember sitting down in my grandfather’s living room while he proudly showed off his slides from years ago. Impress your friends without a pricey digital projector by displaying your photos on the wall. This projector from Photojojo will only cost you a single dollar. While the image may not be perfectly clear, a crisp digital projector will cost you $75-$200. Project movies on the wall for a fun movie night.

No Sew Phone or MP3 Player Holder For Running

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I love those armbands for running that securely hold my device while exercising. Each one can easily cost $30 and I am a fickle about keeping up my exercise program, so I am always hesitant to buy them. Enter this creative no-sew arm holder from Wonder How To. With a placemat, some strong glue and two hair ties you can make your own quick holder. For a more adjustable version, make the armband a little longer and add some velcro strips.

Bargainmoosers, what tech accessories would you love to have?

Gap Canada: Fur Trim Puffer Jacket Was $158 | Now $44 & Free Shipping

Gap Canada: Fur Trim Puffer Jacket Was $158 | Now $44 & Free Shipping

Gap Canada has a beautiful clearance sale on right now. In the sale, I found this Fur Trim Puffer Jacket (grey) on sale from $158 down to $62.99. Using coupon code GAPHAPPY the price comes down to just $44.09. Gap calculates free shipping (on $50) before coupon codes so thus jacket still qualifies for free shipping even though the final price is below $50.

This is a gorgeous coat! It is made of 40% wool, 30% cotton, 25% polyester, 5% other materials. Wool is super warm and a fantastic fiber to include in garments that are meant to keep you cozy and dry. The jacket is filled with 80% down and 20% feather fill.

Gap Canada: Fur Trim Puffer Jacket Was $158 | Now $44 & Free Shipping

Because of the material (wool) and the fill (down/feathers), The Gap suggests you only dry clean this coat. Dry cleaning is not actually as expensive as I thought it would be. I recently dry-cleaned two well-loved pleated wool skirts and it only cost me $15 per skirt.

The fur trim around the hood is faux fur for all you animal lovers. The puffer jacket features adjustable storm cuffs, side pockets that are lined with fleece and zip closed, as well as a bungee drawcord at the hem to keep all the warmth in. The jacket is fully lined so your skin only touches soft fabric. As for length, this jacket hits around the hip on an average height woman.

The faux fur puffer jacket averages a 4/5 star rating with 38 reviews. Here is one of the reviews:

I bought this exact coat except in the vest version and LOVE it. I get so many compliments. It fits well and the fur on the hood is soft and good quality. When I saw the jacket on sale I just had to have it too! My only criticism is I would prefer it to be a little bit longer in length.

The length appears to be the primary problem that people cite. Most of them wish the jacket was a tad bit longer and many taller women say the jacket barely covers their waist. Take this into consideration when you purchase this jacket. Fortunately, the jacket is not final sale and you could return. I find it easiest to return Gap purchases at my local store instead of mailing the item back in.

The coupon code that makes this deal so good ends tomorrow.

(Expiry: 27th February 2015)
