Get Tuesday Pricing All Week @ Cineplex & Landmark Cinemas Canada

Posted by on August 31, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Get Tuesday Pricing All Week @ Cineplex & Landmark Cinemas Canada

*BUMP! We wanted to include Landmark Cinemas in this post* Get Tuesday Pricing All Week @ Cineplex & Landmark Cinemas Canada

This week at Cineplex & Landmark Cinemas Canada, you can get Tuesday pricing any day of the week. That makes for some fun & frugal outings with the family to see whatever movie suits your interests. This offer will run between August 31st and September 4th, but I have already purchased the tickets I want to ensure they don’t sell out first. It also appears that you can apply your 10% Scene member discount on top of these already low prices at Cineplex, woohoo.

I used to think that Tuesdays at Cineplex meant half price tickets, but I have been proven wrong! Actually, on Tuesdays you can get a discounted rate for all films at both Landmark Cinemas and Cineplex. Scene members will get their additional 10% discount as well at Cineplex. So the discount varies by movie it appears, so you’re going to have to take a look through the tickets online to see what price you will end up paying. Read the rest of this entry »

Blues Sampler Album FREE @ Google Play

Blues Sampler Album FREE @ Google Play

If you are in the market for free music, then you have come to the right place. I ran across this Blues Sampler Album called “Play: Blues Pioneers” for FREE at Google Play. This is a Google ‘released’ album that you cannot get anywhere else though you may be able to buy the songs individually elsewhere.

I really know so little about Blues that I cannot possibly due credit to this deal. I will say that each song is by a different artist and you can sample each song before you download the album. Read the rest of this entry »

KitchenAid 7 pc Tool Set with Crock Was $60 | Now $30 @ Sears Canada

I love KitchenAid and I think my entire kitchen, one day, will be pretty much filled with KitchenAid tools. Today, I found this sweet deal on a KitchenAid 7-pc Tool Set with Crock. Originally $59.99, the set is now on sale for $29.99 with free shipping to over 1300 Sears Canada stores and pick-up locations. There should be one near you!

I could not find this exact set in Canada, but I did find an 8-piece KitchenAid set with crock for $74.99 at Canadian Tire. Given that even a no-name (Oneida) set of six plus the crock retails for $29.97 at Walmart Canada, I concluded that this is, indeed, an excellent price for a KitchenAid Kitchen utensil set.

*HOT* Nintendo Wii Kids Games Only 96¢ Each @ The Source

I am all for deals so fantastic you have to buy them even if you never even knew the item existed. Today, I have two Nintendo Wii games that will cost you only 96¢ each! I highly recommend purchasing both as orders of $1 or more qualify for free standard shipping when you use coupon code TS499. Make sure to select standard shipping (not express) at checkout. Now, Academy of Champions: Soccer – Wii Standard Edition and Death Jr.: Root of Evil – Wii are the two games on sale for 96¢ each.

Academy of Champions: Soccer may be the real gem in this sale as it currently retails for $19.16 at Amazon Canada. Death Jr.: Root of Evil is still a nice buy as it currently costs $5 + $3.98 shipping in the Amazon Marketplace. As with most these 96 cent deals at The Source, I doubt these games will last very long. Read the rest of this entry »

Save Money When you Outlet Mall Shop

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

Save Money When you Outlet Mall Shop

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

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

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

Skip the Foreign Currency Fee

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

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

Look for Coupons and Sign up to be a VIP

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

Know Your Store

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

Don’t be Afraid to Leave Empty Handed

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

Wait for the Special Occasions

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

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