What is Bargainmoose?
Bargainmoose is a Canadian shopping community, where people can get together to find and share the hottest deals and coupons. Every day, we find the best offers in the Canadian marketplace and blog about them. We write about everything from online coupon codes to Canadian freebies. Over on our hot deal forums, Canadians share all the best deals they can find, using their eagle-eyed shopping talents to benefit the whole community.
Here on Bargainmoose, we hope to save you as much money as we can!
We recommend that you subscribe to the daily Bargainmoose email updates so you can stay informed about all the best deals. Alternatively, you can subscribe to the Bargainmoose RSS feeds in the reader of your choice, or just pop on to the blog and check in on a daily basis.
BEWARE – some of the deals may be very popular and only last a matter of hours (especially the freebies). I’d recommend checking in on the main website often, to make sure that you get the best deals.
About the authors
Here on Bargainmoose, we’ve got a super team of people who write up the best Canadian deals for the Bargainmoose blog, and pen interesting articles on money-saving advice. Here’s a bit about each of them:
Anna is a work-at-home mom to two little girls. She started Bargainmoose with the simple aim to be a super resource for Canadian coupon codes and deals, as she was already a shopaholic. Anna likes to dabble in video games, digital photography and is an avid sci-fi fan, be it in the form of books or movies.

How Bargainmoose is funded
Bargainmoose is financed in 2 ways:
A few merchants are known as “affiliates,” which means Bargainmoose gets a small percentage commission if you click through and buy from them. Whether or not a merchant is an affiliate in no way affects which deals are posted on Bargainmoose.
You may see a few small adverts over in the sidebar to the right hand side, in the form of exclusive Bargainmoose coupons. A number of these may be paid adverts. These are the only paid adverts on Bargainmoose, all other blog content is editorial only. You can read more about Bargainmoose advertising here. Adverts do not affect the daily Bargainmoose content.
We’re here to find the best deals for you guys, and if Bargainmoose happens to make enough money along the way to keep the site going, then we’re happy!
P.S. The items below were my original “about us” page – I made up this picture puzzle when I started the site in August 2008, which I will leave in here for old time’s sake!
I think I’m going to write my about page in the form of a picture script and you have to read and work it out for yourselves. (If you’re lazy, scroll to the bottom for a read!)
