The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

The Evil Within was just released in October, so this deal is on a fairly new game. Originally $66.49, it is on sale for just $22.60 CAN at Steam Powered.

It is pretty hard to compare prices on digital downloads with their physical equals. However, you are getting the same game – just for a different console. I located some PC versions at local stores to price compare with:

  • $59.95 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $59.95 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $34.99 + $4.99 Shipping @ Amazon.ca (marketplace)
  • $69.99 @ EB Games
  • $69.96 @ Walmart Canada

As you can see, Steam Powered has the best price for the PC version of this game. Even for console versions, the lowest I have seen the game was $30 in this sale Margarita blogged about a bit ago.

This game is pretty scary. If you are not into gore, horror, and mass murder – then you might want to pick another game. As one critic on Metascore said:

The Evil Within has achieved something that not many games have lately: It scared me. Thanks for Mikami-san!

I am not into games that scare me so I have not even watched the trailer for this game. I do know that Detective Sebastian Castellanos is investigating some horrific murders when things go from bad to worse. He witnesses the slaughter of his fellow officers, gets knocked unconscious, and wakes up immersed in a world of hideous creatures and the dead. This is not a game to play before bedtime kiddies!

Now, there is a lot of people who love the game and those who hate it. You must be into psychological horror to enjoy this game. Also, many reviews for the game came out pre-patch. This patch fixed some of the major complaints including black borders to make it feel ‘cinematic’ and some issues with awards not coming through if you were in different modes.

Now, most reviewers will lay out the pros and the cons. One reviewer said:

It is very heavily action focussed which depending on your tastes can be good or bad. Stealth is present, but feels shoehorned in and can sometimes be unreliable. The gunplay feels satisfying and can be quite tense when missing a headshot with low ammo, especially on the harder difficulties.

Many reviewers also say that the storyline is confusing but as you progress in the game it becomes clearer. Now, if this game is not your cup of tea, Resident Evil 5 is also on sale from $19.99 down to $6.80.

NCIX Canada: HP OfficeJet Multifunction Printer Was $200 | Now $80 & Free Shipping

NCIX Canada: HP OfficeJet Multifunction Printer Was $200 | Now $80 & Free Shipping

If you are in the market for a multi-function printer, you have found what you’ve been looking for today at NCIX. Get the HP Officejet 6815 copy/fax/print/scan 29PPM 600×1200 DPI 225-sheet inkjet multifunction printer for only $79.99, with a regular price of $199.99. This item will ship for free too.

Your savings of $120 will leave you lots of money in the budget to buy paper and ink for your printer. This looks like the perfect printer for anyone. I don’t know anyone who shouldn’t have a printer or copier. Fax is a little outdated, but some companies still require you to fax things to them, so it is handy to have. I love that you can print wirelessly from any device on your network. It has 2-sided printing, which is great for less waste.

You can also print photos with this printer, as it has borderless printing for getting the most out of your photo and the paper. It is also Energy Star qualified.

Just to show you that this is a great deal and not an inflated regular price, I did a bit of searching and found this printer at:

You are saving at least $100 from the price at these stores. I couldn’t find any reviews on this printer on any of the store sites, nor could I find any from googling. Considering this is an HP printer, I’m going to think the quality is top-notch being a well-known name in paper and electronics of this sort.

I think I’m going to get this for my office. My husband has a printer, although it is not colour and sometimes I’d like to print things for work or for fun in colour and also not have to run down to my husband’s office. This way I won’t have to listen to him complain about using his ink and paper either.

Dell Canada: Dell Wireless Mouse Was $35 | Now $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 2:11 PM

Dell Canada: Dell Wireless Mouse Was $35 | Now $15 & Free Shipping

There is a special offer on a Dell Wireless Mouse with unifying receiver. Originally $34.99, the Dell wireless mouse is on sale for $14.99 with free shipping. Sign up for the Dell Advantage to receive 5% back on a Dell gift card.

The Dell wireless mouse features Unifying technology by Logitech. You can manage up to six Unifying peripherals, like a keyboard or other mice, with only one Unifying receiver. Only have three USB ports on your computer? This is not a problem with a unifying receiver as all wireless peripherals will communicate with your computer using one single receiver. This mouse comes with that receiver.

The USB receiver stores in the mouse by lifting the cover and sliding it in to its docking station. There is no need to worry about losing the USB receiver as it is contained within the mouse when travelling.

This mouse is lightweight and compact, perfect for mobile users and those travelling. The curved shape minimizes wrist and hand stress. Whether you are left-handed or right-handed, this mouse will work for you as it features an ambidextrous design. This is actually quite nice, as my current mouse is only designed for right hand use. My partner mouses with his left hand – so using the computer with my current mouse is a real pain. It feels awkward in his hands.

This mouse is highly compatible with Windows 8 as the scroll button will scroll up and down as well as left and right. Overall, this makes it easy to navigate the Windows interface. With up to 18-months’ worth of battery, you are going to enjoy a hard working mouse.

The reviews on this mouse are quite strong. One reviewer said:

Super easy and quick setup. Less than 2 min from opening the package to using it. Great for Windows 8. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new wireless mouse

Another reviewer was very pleased about the mouse’s features:

This really works fine for me and I also like the on-off button feature. I have had this mouse for about 2 months now and have no complaints.

On/off buttons really save on power, so I assume this is one of the key contributing factors as to why the mouse can last so long on a single AAA battery.

This is part of Dell’s 12 days of Deals and expires tomorrow morning.

Free Vanilla Ice Cream Cone on 16th of March @ Dairy Queen

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 1:48 PM

Free Vanilla Ice Cream Cone on 16th of March @ Dairy Queen

During these weather conditions, Ice Cream might be the last thing on your mind. Don’t put it out of your mind completely though, Dairy Queen Canada is celebrating their 75th Anniversary at select locations on the 16th of March 2015. During this celebration, you can get a free small vanilla ice cream cone, no purchase required.

I know I am not the only crazy person out there who enjoys a delicious ice cream cone even when the temperatures are below zero. Now you can feel less guilty about paying for a cold treat during the winter. Head over to your local Dairy Queen Canada store on the 16th of March and you can celebrate their 75th Anniversary with them by enjoying a free classic small vanilla ice cream cone. While these cones may be just a tease for some of us, you can always purchase your favourite cold treat afterwards while you are there.

There are a few catches to this freebie offer from Dairy Queen Canada though. First, this offer is only valid at participating locations on the 16th of March 2015. To ensure your Dairy Queen location is participating, it wouldn’t hurt to call ahead. Second, you will be limited to one small vanilla cone per customer, with no purchase required. That means if you go with a friend, you will both need to order a free cone in separate transactions.

In previous experience, Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen can get pretty busy. Be prepared for a little bit of wait time to receive your free cone. I have found in the past, if you show up earlier in the day, you won’t have to wait as long for your free treat. I’ve got this promo marked on my calendar, that’s for sure.

SportChek Canada: Merrell Jungle Glove Shoes Were $120 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 12:50 PM

SportChek Canada: Merrell Jungle Glove Shoes Were $120 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Looking for the ultimate in comfortable shoes? You need Merrell. I was specifically told by my chiropractor to get Merrells to help with my back problems. These Merrell Jungle Glove shoes look insanely comfortable and so easy to slip on. While Sportchek doesn’t have their regular price listed, I found them at other stores for around $120 at regular price, and they are now only $59.88 at Sportchek. Use coupon code AFS4916 to also get free shipping on $49, rounding out this deal.

These shoes can really take you anywhere. Slip them on for work, lounging around the house, running errands and going for walks. Don’t wear socks (unless you really want to), because it has technology to prevent odours before they start and a microfibre sockliner. I wish my kid’s shoes had this! I love shoes that I don’t have to wear socks with as I’m a sock hater.

The exterior is suede with a Vibram sole. It looks like these come in a brown colour and all sizes are available from six to ten, including half sizes.

Looking around, ShoeMe sells these shoes in black for $125. SoftMoc has them on sale in black or grey for $75. Reviews of this shoe are very favourable with a five-star rating on ShoeMe.

You can wear this shoe casual with jeans or with a nice pair of Slacks, and even with Leggings! This shoe is so lightweight and COMFORTABLE!! I Love Merrell shoes!!

I’m sure you didn’t think this deal could get any better, but it can. Sportchek is also offering a buy one, get one 50% off on select footwear. You could buy two pairs of this shoe and see an per pair price of about $45, or you could also browse other clearance shoes and get whichever is the cheaper pair for 50% of the price.

If you want a different shoe, but love the Merrell brand, check out these Mimosa Emme casual shoes. These are the perfect walking shoes for doing everyday living. They are on clearance for $66.88, with a regular price varying at other stores from about $100 to $135.

Costco Canada: Neato Botvac Was $480 | Now $380 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Costco Canada: Neato Botvac Was $480 | Now $380 & Free Shipping

Want the vacuuming done for you? Well, you truly can have your cake and have the mess cleaned up too with the Neato Botvac, on sale at Costco right now. This Neato Botvac 65 pet & allergy robotic vacuum was $479.99 and now only $379.99. Of course, Costco will also give you free shipping too.

With three kids, a dog and two cats, you can imagine what my floors look like. Some days I really feel like giving up and moving into a barn because no matter how much I sweep or vacuum, I can find crumbs, dog hair, dirt, food and much more everywhere. I’m really considering these vacuum so I can just start it after the kids leave for school each day then again after they go to bed. Then, it will be at least clean twice during the day when the kids are not around!

With this robotic vacuum, you can even schedule cleanings. It has an advanced laser guided mapping and navigation system, which means it knows where it has already been and where it will go next. It definitely has that advantage over me already. Even better, you don’t even have to remember to recharge it, it returns to the base itself and recharges! Again, another advantage over me and my kids who don’t know when to go to bed.

You will, however, have to empty the extra-large bin on a regular basis. It can’t do everything, you know.

Looking at price comparisons at other Canadian retailers, Amazon sells this by a secondary seller for $504. I couldn’t really find it elsewhere, but Walmart does have a large selection of Neato robotic vacuums, all selling for more than the price of this vacuum.

There is only one review on Costco’s site, but it is a fairly comprehensive one, giving it five stars out of five. Their only issue was that the filter needed to be replaced often, which I would assume would be typical of any smaller vacuum like this with a small filter that does its job. Luckily, Costco also supplies you with four bonus filters, which should last you about half to a full year.

I have two dogs and fairly large one bedroom apartment. This vacuum quietly (I wasn’t expecting that) cleans the entire apartment on a single charge —with plenty charge left at the end of a cleaning cycle). It also navigates under and around all of my furniture, and manages to climb over low-lying obstacles (like a large rubber bump strip that hides the coaxial cable). It also moves from room to room without difficulty and does the whole apartment on a single charge.

Bargainmoosers, have you tried this vacuum and what are your thoughts? I need a mini robot to do my cleaning!

Step 2 Push Around Sport Buggy Was $70 | Now $40 + $10 Off Shipping @ Toys R Us Canada

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 9:42 AM

Step 2 Push Around Sport Buggy Was $70 | Now $40 + $10 Off Shipping @ Toys R Us Canada

The Step 2 Push Around Sport Buggy just went on sale @ Toys R Us Canada. This play car that has a handle for parents to push from behind was $70, but is now only $39.97. $10 off shipping is also included with this deal.

The other day I was pulling up next to my home in my car, and two robins swooped over top of me. I was so happy as it has been months since I have seen any kind of small bird. To see their bright red plumage reminded me that spring is actually coming. In the meantime, the weather has been a little warmer so I have been bundling up the kid and getting her as much fresh air as our fingers and toes can take.

With spring around the corner, you may be starting to think about your own outdoor toys also. If you have a little one around, this Step 2 Push Around Sport Buggy may be just what you need. This cute little toy car is perfect for a trip to the park, a walk around the neighborhood, a trip to the local corner store and more. Similar to the coveted car carts in the grocery store, the child can pretend they are driving a real car just their size. This car also includes a cupholder for a water bottle or a little snack.

I checked out the prices elsewhere. The green version of this car is hard to find, but there is a similar red version. I found the red version on Amazon.ca for $74.99. Bed Bath and Beyond has a red or pink version of this car for $69.99.

Reviewers seem to love this little car. Here is one happy buyer’s opinion.

Step 2 Push Around Sport Buggy Was $70 | Now $40 + $10 Off Shipping @ Toys R Us Canada

The deal includes $10 off shipping. When I popped this into my cart, shipping is estimated at  $15 total. With the discount, that makes shipping about $5. Make sure to check your own shipping price as it can vary depending on your location, but $10 off will give you a nice start. You can also ship to store free if you want to bypass shipping fees altogether.

At a final price of $39.97, your cart is not far off from $40 minimum to use a Toys R US coupon code. If you pop one smaller item into your cart, you can use the code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY and receive an extra $10 off your cart. I threw in some Crayola Scentsations Washable Broad Tip Markers that were $5.40 but are on sale for $4.37 and was able to use the code.

Grab this great little car now before the stock is all gone. You will thank me this spring when your kid is tired walking home from the park.

(70% Off) Men’s Storm Parka Was $250 Now $75 & Free Shipping @ Adidas Canada

(70% Off) Mens Storm Parka Was $250 Now $75 & Free Shipping @ Adidas Canada

This Men’s Storm Parka is now on deep discount at 70% off at Adidas Canada. This all-weather coat was $250 but is now only $75 in the colour hemp. All orders over $50 qualify for free shipping, including this jacket.

Adidas has some great items on sale right now, including the Men’s Storm Parka. This all-weather jacket with a canvas outer layer is perfect to take you from fall to winter to spring. This jacket reminds me somewhat of a trench coat, but with a sportier feel to it in a khaki colour. It is currently available in sizes medium, large and extra-large. The coat looks roomy if you want to layer underneath and has several pockets. Unfortunately this parka does not have many details with it on Adidas’s website.

Over on Sportchek’s site the description states this is a coated canvas coat with a full teddy lining. I was unsure what a teddy lining is. I read a few other descriptions of various coats and hoodies that have a teddy lining, and it seems to mean in general a warm fleece lining which sounds cosy to me. I would probably use this jacket as a secondary coat for winter so I could wear a lighter shirt underneath, however several reviewers mentioned using it all winter long with no issues. With coated canvas on the outside and a full hood that includes snap lapels, you should stay nice and dry inside this coat. This looks like a great jacket for commuters and should take you easily through spring when it is wet and cold outside.

The only place I was able to find this jacket to price compare was  Sportchek. They have this exact jacket listed on sale for $124Considering a good jacket to beat the weather and rain generally runs at least $100-$150, I think this jacket is a great deal.

Reviews are looking decent overall, with four and a half stars out of five and twenty-one separate reviews. I see in the comments some buyers are noting that the cut runs larger. After reading all the reviews, I might consider buying down a size unless you are planning to layer a lot underneath. Here is one reviewer who is liking this jacket.

MEC: Supercontinent 45 Travel Pack Was $145 | Now $81 & Free Shipping

MEC: Supercontinent 45 Travel Pack Was $145 | Now $81 & Free Shipping

Mountain Equipment Co-op discounted their ever-popular Supercontinent 45 Travel Pack from $145 down to $81. As MEC offers free shipping on orders of $50 or more, this travel pack will ship for free.

This travel pack is just what you need for backpacking across Europe or any other fun adventure you have planned. I would love to forget the suitcase and just use this travel pack for a couple weeks’ vacation in Iceland. Iceland is not a country you want to haul a suitcase around, as it requires a fair bit of walking.

This Supercontinent travel pack has all the features you need as a backpacker. The travel pack is made with a plastic framesheet, aluminum stay, and contoured, padded shoulder straps with hipbelt. The air dot foam back panel covered in mesh promotes air circulation and comfort.

There are two different sizes of travel pack but the price remains the same. Choose from Short/Standard or Standard/Long depending upon your torso length. The main vertical front pocket unzips to expand bellows-style. This feature gives you extra capacity when you need it and a lower profile when you do not need as much space. For the short/standard pack, you receive an extra 8L space and for the standard/long you receive an extra 11L of space.

The Supercontinent 45 Travel Pack has a luggage mode where a cover zips over the harnesses and there is carrying handles. A reviewer commended the backpack’s ability to unzip all the way down, like a suitcase. She said it was one of the best features and comes in very handy when backpacking. Here is an excerpt from another review:

I used this bag for travelling through Europe (2 weeks) and Cuba (2 weeks). The bag was great for moving from one place to another, fits well on my back and it is very comfortable. the side straps are very useful to keep your bag tight; I have taken 6 flights already with this back and always took it as carry on, no complaint from the airlines.

Some reviewers were concerned that the pack might be too long for carry-on, but the above reviewer has had no problems. If you are concerned about length, then purchase the short/standard sized pack.

The pack comes in Sherwood (green) or midnight blue. Both colours are on sale and still in stock as of this post.

Mint.ca: Free Shipping on Lunar New Year Coins

Mint.ca: Free Shipping on Lunar New Year Coins

The Royal Canadian Mint is offering free shipping on all Lunar New year themed coins right now. While The Mint usually has free shipping on orders of $100 or more, there are several coins below this price point that you can purchase and have shipped to you for free.

According to the Chinese zodiac, we have now entered into the year of the sheep with plenty of ram themed coins for you to collect. For a basic New Year’s coin, select this 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Year of the Sheep – Mintage: 22,888 (2015) for just $39.88 with free shipping. This coin is crafted in 99.99% fine silver and has a limited mintage. Because of the silver quantity in the coin, your Year of the Sheep fine silver coin is both GST and HST exempt.

My favourite Lunar New year coin is from the Lotus collection. The Fine Silver Lunar Lotus Coin – Year of the Sheep – Mintage: 18,888 (2015) both has a lower mintage than the above coin and a beautiful scalloped edge. The coin comes in a proof finish and presented in a lovely Asian-inspired case. This coin also is GST and HST exempt; you will just pay $98.88 for the coin and receive free shipping. This is the sixth coin in the twelve-coin lotus set. It is a very nice collector item and it will cost you less than $100 per year.

This Fine Silver Coin – Year of the Sheep – Mintage: 8,888 (2015) has an even smaller mintage and has an artistic rendering of a Bighorn sheep from Canada’s Rocky Mountains. GST and HST free, you pay $74.95 for this 99.9% silver coin.

If you wish to collect some Lunar New Year mementos that are not ‘exactly’ coins, then check out the subscription based The Chinese Lunar Calendar Medallion Set. When you choose this set, you will receive the first medallion (Year of the Goat/Sheep) for only $19.95. Each additional medallion will cost $29.95 each. The last medallion, the Buddha medallion, will be free once you have purchased your twelfth medallion. The Buddha medallion is worth $39.95. In addition, you will receive a wooden collector box worth $50 after you have bought your fifth fan-shaped medallion. Receive free shipping on the goat medallion fan with this offer.

This offer ends in just a couple days so place your celebratory Lunar New Year coin orders soon. After the promotion, only coins over $100 will ship free.

Toys R Us: BabyBjorn Potty Chair Now $22.47 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Toys R Us: BabyBjorn Potty Chair Now $22.47 (FS @ $25)

Toys R Us has discounted the BabyBjorn Potty Chair in all colours from $44.95 down to $22.47. The company offers free shipping on orders of $25, but you can pick up in store for free on any order amount. I found several colours available at my local store, which is not very big, so I assume most stores will have these available for pickup.

You can choose from four colours right now, but not all colours are available for both shipping options. The green is available for free in-store pickup only. Both the blue and the red qualify for free home delivery on $25 or free in-store pickup. The white Baby Bjorn Potty Chair is available for shipping to your home only (no in store pickup).

I found this chair for various prices at other stores. At Future Shop and best Buy, the red potty retails for $30.98, the green for $35.98, and the rest of the colours cost more than that ($38 – $40). Shop.ca offers any colour BABYBJÖRN Potty Chair for $43.99. Lusso Baby sells the chairs for $39.95. While Bed, Bath & Beyond has a few chairs for $29.99, the extra shipping cost really makes the deal not as good. Now, Amazon Canada does have the same price for the red and blue chairs (other colours more expensive), but there is no option for free pickup. Overall, Toys R Us has the better deal and best selection.

Most parents really like this potty. It is good for boys and girls alike. With the high back, it supports your child’s body and the arm-like structures on the side are great for resting little arms. Some parents start training early, when balance is still an issue for their little one. This style works well. One parent said:

This is a simple, straightforward and well-designed classic potty. We’ve been using it successfully for more than a year, since our little one was 6 months old.

While there are no major bells and whistles on this unit, most parents found that an attractive design feature. It allows your child to concentrate on the business at hand rather than become interested in other stimuli.

Overall, I think this is an excellent deal on this potty. Many reviewers said the original price was expensive, so they wait until the potty goes on sale. Now is the time to buy!

President’s Choice Canada: 1000 Bonus Points With Canned Vegetables or Beans Purchase (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Presidents Choice Canada: 1000 Bonus Points With Canned Vegetables or Beans Purchase (EXPIRED)

Moosers, you’re definitely going to go bananas for this offer. Now until March 4th, you can claim a President’s Choice offer to get 1000 bonus points with purchase of PC Blue Menu canned beans or vegetables.

To get your bonus points with purchase, you must first claim the offer by clicking on the link above, then proceeding to “sign in to load this offer”. If you head straight to your local store in the hopes of getting this offer without claiming it beforehand, then the points won’t be applied, sadly. I had a look at the PC Plus app on my app and the bonus 1000 points offer can’t be had there either.

According to the fine print, this President’s Choice offer also doesn’t apply per unit if you buy a pack of cans, in which case you will only get the bonus points once. So make sure to get individual cans. It’s not clear whether you could, for instance, buy 10 individual cans of kidney beans and get 10,000 bonus points, but that’s something you could check and try in-stores.

Keep in mind that this is a one-time use offer and once you have checked out with one or a couple of cans, then you won’t be able to get this offer again.

Another ambiguous point regarding this offer is that it’s set to expire on March 4th but President’s Choice doesn’t specify whether you will still be able to redeem the bonus offer if you claim it before this date. So just to be on the safe side, I suggest you do your shopping before the end of the day on Wednesday because you certainly wouldn’t want to miss out on these points.

For those of you who aren’t subscribed to the PC Plus program, it’s definitely worth signing up. On top of being free, the weekly offers are super easy to attain and most of the time, are items that you would undoubtedly buy anyways. My only advice is that you don’t go out of your way to acquire points on products that you would likely never eat.

Orange you glad you found out about this offer? Okay… I’m done copying the PC Plus app’s jokes. Presidents Choice Canada: 1000 Bonus Points With Canned Vegetables or Beans Purchase (EXPIRED)

LEGO Store: Free Robot with Monthly Mini Model Build

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 4:30 PM

LEGO Store: Free Robot with Monthly Mini Model Build

LEGO stores across Canada are hosting their monthly mini model build where your child can construct a mini robot and take it home (for free)! This even is occurring tomorrow on Tuesday, March 3 at 5:00 pm until supplies last.

Evidently, on the first Tuesday of every month there is a mini model build where your child can build and then take their model home – for free. There is one free model kit per child and the event is open to children ages six to 14 only. This month’s model is a fun little robot.

There are nine stores across Canada and this promotion appears to be at all of them. Here is a full list of Canadian stores:

Alberta

British Columbia

Ontario

Quebec

You can keep track of what is going on at your local store by checking out the store’s news under the map and address through the links above. Currently, there is a LEGO DUPLO event on at Canadian stores where young builders can experience the wonderful world of DUPLO. They can come in and play with these oversized blocks designed for small hands. Children 1 1/2 up to five years old are welcome. This even is ongoing until the 15th of March so you can choose the best day and time for your child’s DUPLO experience.

I really love this promotion for two reasons. First, your child gets to construct a mini LEGO model and keep it. You pay for nothing and your child gets a new toy. Moreover, this event occurs every month so your child could feasibly receive 12 free mini models each year if you attend all of the mini build sessions. Given that this event is open to children six years old until 14, that is a lot of free models you could collect over the years.

These models are not available for sale and cannot be purchased so your child would receive a rare and limited edition toy.

With Halloween quite a few months away, I’m going to say this costume is perfect for staying in. It could also possibly be worn to a dress-up party where you want to look sexier than anyone else around. Either way, you’ve got all you need for that “ride ‘em cowboy” mentality including the hat, halter top, vest with fringe shorts and the chaps with the antique brass belt. You really don’t need any more.

I had a friend who wore an outfit almost exactly like this to a party I once went to. I can tell you it garnered a lot of attention. The sizes for this costume come in either small/medium or medium/large and you’ll want to check the size guide for what that means. It seems like the largest this costume will fit is a size 10, but when I look at the bust measurements, those don’t look like a 10’s measurements, so ensure you know your measurements before you order.

If cowgirl just isn’t your thing, there is plenty more where this came from. Not on sale, I found this big bad wolf costume fascinating. Its got a corset, tail and hood that look so fun to wear! Regularly $119.99, you can add the coupon code and bring the price down to $101.99. This will qualify you for free shipping, as the threshold is set at $100. If you are getting the cowgirl costume, you might want to add something else to your cart so you don’t get charged the $10 charge for shipping.

Eclipse Canada: Yoga Pants Were $25 | Now $16 (FS @ $30)

Yoga pants – probably the best invention of this century. While I am not one to wear my yoga pants to a party or every single day, there is a time and a place for yoga pants. You don’t just have to wear them to yoga, but no matter what you paid for your yoga pants, do us all a favour and wear jeans sometimes too. Anyway, Eclipse has a really great deal on right now on yoga pants. Regularly $24.99, get them for only $15.99.

I’m going to say that $16 is a pretty sweet price to pay for these contrast waistband yoga pants. You could spend more – a lot more – on brand name pants, but sometimes it is nice to pay less than $20 for something you know is probably close to the same quality.

These are made with a cotton/spandex material so you know they are both soft and stretchy. These materials also allow you to throw them in the washing machine, which is a great perk, as with the other brands of yoga pants, you really can’t do that or you risk them getting severely balled up (trust me, I know!).

There are five colour choices and it looks like every size is still in stock. You can choose from black with black (so no contrast), black with a blue and charcoal waistband, black with a viola and charcoal waistband, black with a white and charcoal waistband or black with a white and neon fuschia waistband.

While Eclipse normally has free shipping on orders over $50 or you’ll pay $9 in shipping, we’ve got an exclusive coupon code that will get you free shipping at $30. This means if you buy two pairs of the yoga pants, you’ll also score free shipping. Use MOOSEECLIPSE30 to get your shipping free at $30.

I think I’m going to go a little wild and get the neon and then go mild and get the black with white and charcoal. What are you going to get?
