Click here to check out this deal @ now

  • Coupon Code: TOUCHEXTRA
  • Discount: $55 off
  • Expiry: 26th August 2014

The Hanns-G HT231DPBU Black 23″ Touchscreen Monitor with built-in speakers  normally costs $349.99 on Newegg, while it rings in at $219.99 at Canada Computers, and costs $224.47 at Ashlin Technology Solutions. Though you’ll have to input your postal code to find out how much shipping will cost you for this deal at Newegg, it typically ends up being $9.99 for ground shipping to a Canadian address.

When I first checked out a touchscreen monitor at a retail location several months ago, I was blown away. I didn’t think it would captivate me very much, since most smartphones on the market at this time have touchscreen capabilities. However, you don’t know just how handy a touchscreen interface on a desktop computer can be, until you use one that’s equipped with Windows 8.1. Everyday tasks become that much easier to accomplish, and it certainly attracts attention! At least that was the case when I found myself playing Fruit Ninja on a touchscreen monitor at a retail location, and a small crowd gathered behind me (most likely shaking their head at my now-rusty video game skills).

Here’s what some Newegg customers had to say about the Hanns-G HT231DPBU Black 23″ Touchscreen Monitor:

Pros: Great size. I ordered 2 because of the price and I wanted 2 monitors. I got them and was almost shocked by how big they were. like they were seriously BIG! still very thin however, which I really like. very responsive, great picture. True 1080p is hard to complain about.

Cons: Why is there still D-SUB or VGA on anything? add an HDMI to this thing. On the side by the display inputs it says HDMI optional, but no port. PUT ONE IN AND GET RID OF D-SUB!!! Stand is a little flimsy, but it doesn’t raise any concerns over stability.

Other Thoughts: DVI input solves some of the issues for the display inputs.

Harlequin Canada Coupon Code: BOGO Today Only!

Posted by on August 22, 2014 at 12:55 PM

Harlequin Canada Coupon Code: BOGO Today Only!

Here’s a steamy offer for all of you Harlequin lovers: use the code below to take advantage of a “buy one, get one free” deal on everything site wide! The only hitch is that this deal expires at the end of the day, so hurry to redeem the code while you still can.

Buy one, get one free @ now

  • Coupon Code: BG822NB
  • Discount: BOGO
  • Expiry: 22nd August 2014

This offer couldn’t have come in at a better time than TGIF and the best part is that if you don’t want to wait for your books to arrive in the mail, then this code may also be used on eBooks. However, make sure you add everything you want to your cart in a single order because there are no do-overs if you forget one, as this code may only be used once per customer!

Not sure where to start? Shopping by category is very helpful as you can find novels centred around fantasy, classic romance, chick lit, passion or even erotic fiction. In fact, for those of you looking to spice things up in the bedroom, that last category could definitely be a great way to get some new ideas! Harlequin Canada Coupon Code: BOGO Today Only!

Although it looks like it has been temporarily closed because of a scandal, you can also check out Harlequin’s Chatsfield for a series shrouded in mystery, romance and never-ending rumours. Written by Melanie Milburne, the first one in the series is “Engaged at The Chatsfield” and is available in an eBook format for just $0.99.

What I like about Harlequin’s site is that they don’t just have romance books. In the nonfiction categories, you can also find books on “self help“, “family and parenting” and even “fun and games“. Given that I’m a new mom, one such non fiction title that I would be interested in reading is Susan Wiggs and Andrea N. Richesin’s “Because I Love Her” as it focuses on the relationship and bond between mothers and daughters. It’s available in either trade paperback for $11.16 or digitally for $10.04, though at those prices, I definitely suggest you opt for the physical version of the book. I much prefer reading an actual book over an eBook, but the latter is definitely better for travelling.

As for shipping, first time customers of Harlequin get their order shipped absolutely free and returning customers can benefit from free shipping on orders over $15. For more Harlequin coupon codes, check out the forum.

Mexx Canada Promo Code: $25 Off $100 On Regular Priced Adults Clothing

With back to school might also come back to work, especially if you are a teacher and have had a nice summer off! With back to work, it should also mean new clothes for you too. The kids shouldn’t get all the fun. Mexx has devised a fairly sweet coupon code just for those of you who don’t want to get left out of all the new clothes out there! Get $25 off $100 on any purchase of regularly-priced adult clothing.

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: BACKTOWORK25
  • Discount: $25 off $100
  • Expiry: 3rd September 2014

While I’m not going back to work, I have a few conferences to attend this fall, and I’m on the lookout for a few good outfits to wear to them. I love the style of Mexx’s clothing and this is definitely a store that will fulfill my conference fashion desires.

Dresses are always the first place I shop, whether it be for dressing up or dressing down. If you can believe it, I don’t have a little black dress! I think this is because I always seem to shop for the funky and the fun dresses first, but I truly do need one and this LBD from Mexx fits the bill very nicely.  I love how the top is looser and the bottom tighter and it gives the look of a wrap dress. This is a flattering style for someone like me who sports a bit of a tummy but rocks the legs that will be showing. This dress is truly an investment at $130, but add the coupon code and pay only $105. You’ll thank yourself any time you need a dress and can’t get a new one. This one is going to get worn many times.

My husband works from home as well, but often visits clients. Most times he can stay dressed down, but there are the odd times he should look a little more polished. Adding a sweater like this cashmere blend sweater to his wardrobe would do just the trick. Regularly $120, he’ll get it down to $95 with the coupon code.

If you are using the Mexx coupon, you are also attaining free shipping with your purchase being over $75.

Banana Republic Promo Code: 20% Off BR Picks

Banana Republic has some kind of promotion and sale going on a near daily basis but each one typically has the same exclusions, one of which are BR picks. For the very first time (or perhaps, first time in a very long time), Banana Republic is offering a 20% discount on all BR picks, so get them while you still can as you only have until the end of the week-end to take advantage of this extremely rare code.

Shop the BR Picks for women @ here

Shop the BR Picks for men @ here

  • Coupon Code: BRPICKS
  • Discount: 20% off BR Picks
  • Expiry: 24th August 2104

I have been invited to a wedding that will be happening very soon but as it is always the case with such formal event, my hubby and I have nothing to wear. Well, of course we do have a closet full of clothes but since nothing seems appropriate enough, we have decided to shop at either The Gap or Banana Republic and this sale couldn’t have happened at a better time! For hubby, I’m thinking of getting the tailored slim-fit non-iron micro-gingham shirt. It’s $95 but comes down to $76. It’s 100% cotton and I’m positive that my hubby would like it because of its slim fit. We attended a wedding a couple of years ago and I still can’t live down the fact that I got him a shirt that wasn’t slim fit! Even better is that it featurea non-iron technology for a material that is nearly wrinkle-free, although for a formal event or an office job, you might want to give it a little ironing or steaming regardless.

Unfortunately, there is nothing out of the BR picks that I could wear to the wedding myself, but I did, however, spot the bell-sleeve sweater jacket, which comes down to $88 (reg. $110). It has a zipper on the front and actually has 25% merino wool, which is sure to make this sweater ultra-soft and durable. When it comes to pricier items, quality is everything and I, for one, don’t mind paying a little more for a quality item as there is a good chance that it will stand the test of time.

Shipping is free on all orders over $50. Alternatively, if anything else catches your eye, then you can use the Banana Republic promo code located in our forum to save 40% on your order (regular exclusions apply). The only hitch is that it can’t be stacked with the code above.

April Cornell Canada: 30% Off During Summer Sale

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 10:00 PM

April Cornell Canada: 30% Off During Summer Sale

Enjoy 30% off summer dresses, skirts, nighties, and more during April Cornell’s summer sale.

April Cornell sells clothing for women and girls. The dress fabric is generally cotton, which is breathable and thus one of the best options for summer. Here are some of the items you will find in the summer sale.

Grace Ladies Dressing Gown

This is a full-length dressing gown made of pure cotton in a smoke colour. It features gentle ruffles at the front and the wrists to accent the garment. Perfect for morning tea, fetching the paper, or watering the plants; this dressing gown will cover you throughout your morning ritual. Originally $98, it is now on sale for $68.60.

Parakeet Girls Dress

Girls’ dresses range in price depending on which size you would like. This jungle bird print dress is made of pure cotton with a crocheted cotton lace accent with coordinating embroidery. The dress features short, puff sleeves and a half button placket at the back. The buttons are made of mother-of-pearl and the dress hits approximately mid-calf length. The size six dresses originally cost $59 and are now on sale for $41.90. The size 8 and 12 dresses are only discounted to $48.30.

Fairy Fruit Ladies Dress

There are many cotton dresses for women as well. The Fairy Fruit print was inspired by the prairies and features a flower and fruit micro print. Enjoy lace trim at the armholes and mother-of-pearl buttons. The dress fits a bit snug, so if you are in between sizes you should size up. Originally $89, the dress is now on sale for $62.30.

So little of what we wear is made of 100% cotton anymore. Care for cotton is different. As April Cornell suggests, you should wash 100% cotton clothing in cold water and then hang them to dry. If you do not have a clothesline outside your house, I recommend buying a drying rack for inside. I own one and it works marvellously. Cotton clothing is also very durable. I own a pure cotton retro style dress that is very durable and wears beautifully on a warm day.

April Cornell gives a portion of their proceeds to charity as a way of giving back to the community. I am pretty fond of any company that practices charity on an ongoing basis. All packages ship from Quebec and shipping starts at $12.70 and is tiered depending on how much you spend.

Canada Luggage Depot Discount Code: Exclusive 10% Off Everything

From luggage to handbags, wallets and even laptop bags and briefcases, Canada Luggage Depot has everything you might need to carry and protect your valuables. Luckily, we have secured a Bargainmoose exclusive coupon code for an additional 10% off everything site wide, but use it quick because it expires at the end of this week-end!

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: BargainMoose_10offCoupon
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 24th August 2014

There are plenty of regularly-priced items to choose from but what caught my attention the most while browsing Canada Luggage Depot’s selection is their sale/ clearance section because prices are already low as it is and you can use our Bargainmoose exclusive to save even more. With back to school already upon us, the Swiss Gear Wenger quick loop molded laptop backpack could be of interest to many, especially since it’s on sale for $39.99, down from a regular price of $90. With the code, it comes even further down to just $36, which is 60% off the original price! Swiss Gear is definitely a well-trusted brand that is known for their durable items, so I have no doubt that this backpack would stand the test of time. Just from the picture, it’s easy to tell that this backpack is made from durable material and another major plus is that the shoulder straps are ergonomically designed with ultimate comfort in mind. Carrying a laptop with a couple of books can become quite heavy, and I’m speaking from experience, so any extra padding is a very good detail to have on a backpack!

For those of in need of a new luggage set, then I also spotted the Skyway Stratus 3-piece spinner luggage set on sale for just $184.99. With the coupon above, this set comes down to just $166.49, which comes up to 70% off the original price of $637.50. In fact, Future Shop has this same luggage set for as high as $534.99! They also have it in blue for $266.98, though personally I definitely prefer it in black because the scuff marks and dirt from the airport/ airplane wouldn’t be as obviously visible. The set features a small, medium and large suitcase, all of which have expandable cases for superior packing and ergonomic handles.

Shipping rates depend on the order (i.e. the heavier the items, the higher the fees), but if you shop for over $99, then shipping is free. For more Canada Luggage Depot discount codes, be sure to keep an eye on the forum.

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

When we first moved into our house, we bought a bunch of book shelves for one of the walls in our basement for storage because it was all we could afford at the time.  Now that we have lived here a few years and have decorated the way we want, we are left with these book shelves that I just don’t need anymore.  I though about selling them second hand but to be honest, they were pretty cheap to begin with and I wouldn’t really get anything for them.  I am a crafty person so I decided I would use them in other ways around the house.

I was searching online for inexpensive ways to up-cycle these bookshelves and came across some really inventive and fun ways to turn them into something more useful.

1. Child’s Sandbox

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

This idea came from the blog I have a 3 year old and a four year old, so this idea was perfect for us.  All you have to do is turn it on it’s back, give it a quick coat of bright paint and fill it with sand.  You may want to weather coat it so that it last longer and last in the rain, snow and other outside conditions.  I love this idea!

2. Planter Garden

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

I was looking on and found this idea. This idea I have already done myself and it turned out great!  It made perfectly lined rows for my herb garden.  Just like the sandbox idea, you will want to weather proof this garden bed to make sure it lasts through watering and rain. I have gotten so many compliments already.  I also did this with an old filing cabinet, as well the exact same way.

3. Desk

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

Over at, they had a great idea for a bookshelf to be turned into an office desk. They have all of the instructions to carry out this simple up-cycle project for your office or even for your kids bedroom.

4. Bench

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

If you have a tall skinny bookshelf, you will want to think about this refurbished project.  Flip it on it’s side and add some paint, fabric and some stuffing to the top of it for an awesome bench! You can find this idea over at

5. Mud Room Organization

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

I love the idea of taking an old book shelf, and making it into an organizer for a mudroom or hallway.  This is perfect if you have a cluttered entryway or you don’t have storage space.This idea came from and I bet is very popular.

6. Mini bar

6 Ways To Repurpose Your Old Bookshelves

How can you not just fall in love with this idea!  Turn a smaller bookshelf into a great mini bar for entertaining.  It is so simple and easy and all of the details for it are posted up on the website for you to follow.

Do you have some other repurposed uses for an old bookshelf?

Columbia Sportswear Canada: Kids Fleece Sweaters Only $20

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Columbia Sportswear Canada: Kids Fleece Sweaters Only $20

When you think of Columbia, you probably think of warmth. I know I do, as my kids have had Columbia jackets and snowpants that have far outlasted any other brand I have gotten them. I’m sure that their other clothing, especially the outerwear, will perform just as well. This means that I’m in luck when I see that they have fleece sweaters for both boys and girls on for only $19.99, with regular prices of $39.99, essentially making them 50% off.

This is the perfect time to get your kids some fleece. While the sun might be shining and the humidex might be high, believe it or not, this won’t last for long. In fact, in Ontario, we are calling this Octogust because it has not been that warm anyway and most days remind me of warm-ish fall days. I’m ready for fleece on the cool evenings!

For only $19.99, I could pick my boys up this Steens mountain fleece. It has a number of reviews, which give it a 5-star rating. What’s great about fleece is that it is soft and cozy, plus it is warm and looks good. This review sums up this jacket:

My son is a very picky person when it comes to EVERYTHING! He just loves this jacket and so do I! It is so soft, warm and comfortable for him and the color is outstanding! I would highly recommend this jacket!

Another use for the fleece jacket is to use it as a liner under your winter jacket. I know my middle son would definitely appreciate this as he is tiny and layering keeps him the most warm. He can’t ever be too warm.

If you want to spend a little more at $29.99, regularly $39.99, check out the Steens mountain II fleece. It comes in a number of colours and looks like it might be the newer version of the one I just told you about.

The girl’s fleece is a little more at $22.49, regularly $49.99 and this Benton Springs printed fleece is pretty cute in two different colour choices.

Shipping is a flat rate of $7.

Linen Chest Canada: BOGO 50% Off A Huge Number Of Items

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Linen Chest Canada: BOGO 50% Off A Huge Number Of Items

Linen Chest is having a huge buy one, get one 50% off sale on a huge number of items like bedding, towels, decor, dinnerware and more.

You can buy what you like, then get a second item of equal or lesser value at 50% off. I really like this sale because it includes so much. It isn’t just buy one towel, get the second at 50% off. It is buy one towel, get a pot at 50% off or buy a knife and get a spoon at 50% off. Whatever combination you want, you can do! To get the most benefit from this sale, you’ll want to shop the more expensive items since 50% off $100 is a much better deal than 50% off $10, but you will have to spend $150 to get that.

I am in dire need of new bedding as the bedding we have on our bed is getting a little ruffled from years of us sleeping on it and a dog and 2 cats and sometimes sick kids. Bleck. If I could just keep the dog off the bed, I’d totally get a duvet cover from this Swarovski geometric bedding collection.  On sale for $139.95 from $199.95, it is already a steal.

I’m in as much need for dinnerware as I am for bedding. My husband I joked that people should be able to have weddings every 10 years just to get those gifts for the home that you needed so desperately as newlyweds and need just as desperately now. I love this Whisper 16-piece dinnerware set that is $119.95.

If I got both the bedding and the dinnerware, instead of paying regular prices of $319.90, I’d get the dinnerware 50% off and pay a total of $199.92, which is a huge savings!

As a very cool added bonus, Linen Chest gives you free shipping when you spend $30 or more, which is a very low threshold and I know you’ll spend that amount with this deal easily and get lots of good stuff for the home!

Canada Post Coupon Code: 15% Off RMS Empress of Ireland 100th Anniversary Collector Set

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Canada Post Coupon Code: 15% Off RMS Empress of Ireland 100th Anniversary Collector Set

Canada Post has released a coupon code for 15% off the Empress of Ireland 100th Anniversary Collector Set. The set retails for $99.95, but you can purchase it for $84.96 at Canada Post. You will also receive free shipping as the set retails for over $25 (which is Canada Post’s minimum for free shipping).

Click here to view the Empress of Ireland set @ Canada Post now

  • Coupon Code: EMPRESS2014
  • Discount: 15% off Empress of Ireland Set
  • Expiry: 31st December 2014

This coupon is good all the way until the end of the year dear Moosers. If you have any coin collectors in the family, then consider giving them this beautiful coin, stamp, and book collection as a gift. This collection makes a good gift for stamp collectors and history buffs as well. Personally, I just like big ships and this boy is a tragic beauty.

This collector’s edition is loaded full of marvelous stuff:

  • A book telling the story of the Empress including her role in furthering immigration to Canada and the events of the early morning hours of May 29, 1914.
  • A limited-edition Royal Canadian Mint commemorative coin (only 15,000 pieces made).
  • Two reproduction Empress postcards
  • Stamp collectibles with unique metallic ink cancels
  • A full pane of 16 domestic-rate stamps
  • A souvenir sheet of the international-rate stamp
  • Both Official First Day Covers

The coin is the centerpiece of this entire collection. It alone costs $34.95 at Canada Post and at the It is hard to price compare the entire set because it appears to only be sold at Canada Post.

This set tells a story. For anyone whose families were influenced by the events of the Empress of Ireland, or anyone who cares about Canadian history, this set commemorates an important event in our history as a nation and in Canada’s naval and immigration past. For those of you not familiar with the Empress of Ireland, she is considered the “Canadian Titanic,” which should give you enough context to figure out what happens to this ship full of people traveling to Canada.

Canada Post also has a new “Sold Out at the Mint” Collection where you can shop for coins no longer available at the Royal Canadian Mint. As Canada Post offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more, you can often get a better deal when you buy your coins through Canada Post rather than pay shipping costs on top of the coin costs at the Mint.

Free Jolly Ranchers on Friday with 7-Eleven App

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Free Jolly Ranchers on Friday with 7 Eleven App

Pop into your local 7-Eleven store this Friday for a box of free Jolly Ranchers Chews with your 7-Eleven phone app.

For this deal, all you need is a smart phone (either android or iPhone) and the app. You will also need to sign up for an account to view and use the coupons. When you arrive in store, you click on the offer for the free Jolly Ranchers Chews. You will then have 15 minutes for checkout. The till needs to scan your coupon within that set amount of time.

Freebies are always great, and if you are stopping by a 7-Eleven anyways then you should certainly pick these up. I would not make a separate trip for them, as they are only worth a couple dollars at most. However, if your local 7-Eleven is convenient, why not? My local 7-Eleven corner store is all of one block away, thus I really have no excuse not to pick up these freebies.

I remember eating these, or something quite like these, when I was a kid. Fruit chews were my favourite unless I bit into a banana flavoured one. Yuk. While they are not exactly healthy, they are a nice treat. From the advertisement we received, it looks like you will receive a 58g box of tropical flavoured chews. The flavours in this box are:

  • Pineapple
  • Strawberry – Kiwi
  • Lemon – Lime
  • Tropical Punch

I looked up reviews for the chews and found a few on Amazon. This person rather expresses my views on fruit chews:

these delicious morsels are so good they are addictive. every time I have one, I end up have at least 2-3 more. they are irresistible! I also highly recommend the original flavors which are also quite good.

They are so dangerously addictive… try having just one!

The 7-Eleven app is a good app to have around all year around. They often do free chocolate bars, free Slurpees, and other coupons that give you discounts on everything from food to SIM cards. It is one of the best store apps out there because of the number of freebies they give to Canadians all year around.

This offer is while quantities last. Check the app before heading to your local store to make sure there are still free chews available.

August 21 BOGO Free Swimwear @ Kallone Intimi

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 4:00 PM BOGO Free Swimwear @ Kallone Intimi

Summer is still on people! Take advantage of this buy one get one free offer on swimswear, underwear and more in the Kallone Intimi shop at

I have had a very lucky year, contest wise, and I only mention that because it is totally relevant to this post. I recently won a swimsuit from Kallone Intimi and an undershirt from Nudy Patoody in a partnership contest they did for an awesome summer selfie. They are holding another contest again this month and you can totally enter here. Do it! If I can win, you can totally win!

Today I got an option between two swimsuits, and – surprise surprise – I went for the all black one. I chose the Sunsets Underwire Bandeaukini Top in Black that retails for $88 and the Sunsets Seamless High Waist Bottom in Black that retails for $57. If you add both of them to your cart, you can get the briefs for free, so the set would just cost you $88 instead of $145. The discount is automatically applied in your cart. I am really looking forward to those bottoms as I have a grey and black swim top (rash guard style) that I do not have any bottoms for. Basic black bottoms like these will not only match the top above, but they will also match my other swim top. I could even wear them under some of my slightly sheer dresses to add a little modesty.

Kallone Intimi has a massive selection of swimsuits. While I already have several swimsuits and do not particularly need more after my recent acquisition, I am eager to try out the brand Miss Mandalay. I have heard so much about this UK brand that sizes their tops by cup size and make tops for fuller bust women. Just look at the size selection for this Miss Mandalay Boudoir Beach Halter in Turquoise. The bikini top costs $80, but then you can get the matching fold-up brief for free (value $45). I am so disappointed they are out of stock in a 36E or I would completely blow my August clothing budget. Usually I do not like halter-tops as they pull terribly at my neck; however, the supportive underwire in this bra may alleviate some of the strain. I would prefer to see this in a multi-way strap in the future.

Bench Canada: Men’s Alternative II Jacket $52 (Was $129)

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Bench Canada: Mens Alternative II Jacket $52 (Was $129)

If the man in your life (or yourself) needs a new jacket, Bench has some hot deals on! The Alternative II jacket is a sweet price of only $51.99, with a regular price of $129.

Taking you outside through September, October, November and hopefully March to May, this jacket is a good “most-weather” jacket. It has a funnel neck zip thru to keep your throat protected. I love the way this jacket looks and the length of it. It has a detachable hood, so if you are like my husband, you can remove it under most circumstances. The g is the cheapest of the styles at $51.99 and comes at this price in the pine green and ensign blue. Colours like white or black or red are at regular price.

H and J are also on sale, which are basically different because instead of a solid like the above jacket, they have a pattern. H is London Fog, which is a camo and is $55.99, but with a regular price of $139.99. J has a very nice dotted pattern for $55.99 and comes in smoked pearl, twilight blue and true red all for that sale price.

A very similar jacket to the men’s jacket in a ladies style is the BBQ Vickster jacket, which looks very similar in style, except of course the pattern. This pattern is the raspberry rose, which I think is very unique and perfect for the person who wants to stand out with a beautiful jacket. It is on sale for $51.99, with a regular price of $129.

Besides jackets, Bench has a number of items available on sale for outstanding prices. I love that you can search by price, size and colour so you can get exactly what you want on the first try. It is such a pain shopping the sale section on some sites only to keep finding that they only have one size left, and it isn’t mine. This way I can filter out any size I don’t want and see only what they have available for me. No searching through the virtual racks at Bench!

Shipping is free on orders over $99.

Amazon Canada: $20 off Kindle Paperwhite eReader – Now $119

Amazon Canada: $20 off Kindle Paperwhite eReader   Now $119

Purchase the Kindle Paperwhite eReader at Amazon Canada for $20 off. The Paperwhite retails for $139 but is now on sale for $119.

Today’s market presents many difficulties for eReaders. When everyone owns a tablet, laptop, or a smartphone on which you can read books, where is the place for eReaders? The job of companies that build eReaders is to differentiate them from the competition. What makes an eReader different and what makes it better than reading on those other devices.

The main difference is the screen. A tablet or phone is designed to be a multi-media device. They are built with brilliant but highly reflective screens. Have you ever had difficulty reading your phone the second you step outside? I have to turn up the brightness to maximum on my phone before I go outside or else I cannot even see enough to get into my phone to turn the brightness up. With the Kindle Paperwhite screen, this is not an issue. The screen mimics paper and there is no glare in bright light.

Battery life is another defining feature of an eReader versus a tablet. With a tablet, you can expect to charge it every day without fail if you are using it. At best, you can get away with a charge every couple of days. The Paperwhite eReader can go up to eight weeks without charging (Wi-Fi off). I am estimating it has around 30 hours of continual use on one charge.

The Paperwhite also comes with a built in light for late night reading and it stores up to 1,000 books. That is enough to keep you reading for a very long time. Another benefit of an eReader over a tablet is weight. Tablets are getting thinner and lighter with every new version, but they have not managed to reach a mere 206 grams, which is the weight of the Kindle Paperwhite.

The Kindle Paperwhite 3G is also on sale from $209 down to $189. It has all the same features as the above eReader and it comes with built in 3G. It also weighs a tad bit more at 215 grams.

I am still in love with physical books, but I do hate the space they take up. One day I might just have to change over to an eReader (maybe when they improve their graphic novel section).

My Outlet Store: K’Nex Classics 50 Model Building Set Only $17 (Was $45)

My Outlet Store: KNex Classics 50 Model Building Set Only $17 (Was $45)

I found a fantastic deal at My Outlet Store. Get the K’Nex Classics 50 model building set for only $17.10, with a regular price of $45. It is on sale for $19, but add the coupon code CARDSWAP to get another 10% off ($1.90) and get it for $17.10. This coupon code will work for anything in store as well.

This set is really cool and I think I’m going to get it for my little building children. I have been looking at K’Nex sets for a while but the price has really been putting me off. Not this time! This set is also perfect for creating what you want, rather than a defined object. I’m not big on buying my kids sets that have them build exactly as the instructions say, for a variety of reasons. First off, that doesn’t let them be creative. Even when I do buy sets, they do what they want with them rather than build what they “should”. Second, they lose so many pieces, so why not have a set that if you lost a piece, it won’t render the whole thing useless.

There are 700 pieces in this set and 50 building ideas, in case your child does want some instruction on what to build. You could build things like a hot air balloon, sand castle, lighthouse, creatures from the sea and so much more. It says it is for age 7 and up, but I know my three-year-old would be very happy with this set.

Just to give you an idea of what this set sells for at other stores, I found it at Sears for $44.99, and at Toys R Us for $44.99. No matter how you look at it, My Outlet Store’s price is phenomenal.

You will have to add $4.95 for shipping, but the price is still way lower than any other store.
