ItFit Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 35% Off

ItFit Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 35% Off

I told you about ItFit not that long ago, when they had a coupon for 25% off. I managed to get a coupon exclusively for Bargainmoose readers, for 35% off.

Click here to shop @ Itfit.ca now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: 35% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

As I told you in the last post, Itfit also has a deal, where if you buy two headbands, you’ll get one free. That deal still applies with this coupon code. This means that instead of paying $16 per headband, you’ll pay a total of $20.80 for three headbands. Because your total is over $20, you’ll also get free shipping, which is a nice bonus.

I decided to try out ItFit bands for myself. I have very fine hair and all headbands slip out of my hair. ItFit says these ones are guaranteed to stay in your hair. While wearing it folded, it wanted badly to stay in, but eventually, it did slip out. I think if I try wearing it unfolded like it shows in the photos, I shouldn’t have a problem. Also, because my hair is so fine, even the Lululemon ones with the elastic backing come out of my hair. I think I just have a bad head/hair for headbands!

While I don’t typically wear headbands, I was amazed how striking I looked adding that pop of colour to my face. Even without makeup, I felt like I looked polished, while just going to the gym. I have bangs, which make my forehead sweaty at the gym, so this type of headband is perfect for keeping them back without looking all disheveled to keep me from breaking out when I sweat.

There are quite a few prints and solids to choose from. I do love the paisley, but I got the peacock and groovy styles and love them both on me, especially when I’m dressed in all black yoga attire. I think these are also great for bad hair days when the kids won’t let you shower, as you can hide your greasy locks.

Check for more exclusive coupon codes in the Bargainmoose forum and save the most you can on ItFit bands.

Photobook Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 60% Off All Photobooks

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Photobook Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 60% Off All Photobooks

With Valentine’s Day on the way, you might be considering making a photobook for the one you love. You might also finally have your 2014 photos in order and want to do a year in review. Either way, you’ll want to check out this deal from Photobook Canada, because by using our exclusive coupon code, you’ll get a whopping 60% off all photobooks. The coupon doesn’t include any extra pages or upgrades you might want though.

Click here to shop @ Photobookcanada.com now

  • Coupon code: PBMOOSESPL1
  • Discount: 60% off
  • Expiry: 31st March 2015

You still have five days to order your photobooks and get them before Valentine’s Day. I think I’m going to make my boys a photo book of our recent vacation in Cuba as a Valentine’s surprise.

I like that there are all sorts of different styles I can choose from including a travel photobook. The beach life is my favourite and while I usually go for an 8×8 style book, I want to do something larger this time. The 11×8.5 looks good to me. The price is regularly $69.99, but the coupon brought the book down to $28, which is fantastic! This is for 40 pages, and I can add more pages if I’d like at a cost.

The largest book that Photobook Canada carries is the XL landscape, which is 17.5×12″. This is great as a wedding photobook, as you’ll want something large for guests to look at or as a coffee table book after the wedding. Regularly $229.99, this book will come down to $91.99, which is a significant savings.

Photobook Canada offers free shipping on orders over $75. Otherwise, I noticed my smaller photobook for $28 had a $13 shipping fee on top. What I think I will do is make a photobook for my trip, one for the last year in review and one for my husband for our 10th wedding anniversary that just passed. Hopefully my family doesn’t read this, as they will all be gifts!

Before you make your photobook, be sure to check the Bargainmoose forum for the latest Photobook Canada exclusive coupons.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 3-in-1 6 Quart Multi Cooker Was $190 | Now $120

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 10:43 AM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 3 in 1 6 Quart Multi Cooker Was $190 | Now $120

Through the cold dredges of winter, slow cookers can save the day. There is just something about smelling your dinner cooking all day to give you a feel-good lift when the weather is bringing you down. Shop.ca has a great deal on the Cuisinart 3-in-1 6 quart slow cooker, with a regular price of $189.99. It is on sale for $139.99, but you can also add the coupons from their Facebook page under the more tab, where you like them and get a $20 off $50 coupon to get a final total of $119.99. If you’ve used up all of those coupons, you can use our exclusive coupon for $10, which is not as good of a deal, but still pretty rockin’.

While you’ve probably seen slow cookers on for as low as $30, you might be wondering why you’d want to pay over $100. This model has features that those $30 cookers just don’t have. They call it a multi-cooker because it is multi-functional. It is also quite large at six quarts.

Instead of browning your meat on the stovetop before putting it in the slow cooker, you can brown it right in the cooker with temperatures up to 400 degrees. If you want to steam your veggies or meat first, you can also do that in this cooker. This gets rid of the need for another appliance. You also don’t have to do one thing, come back and change it to the other, you can use the preset buttons and it will do everything on its own.

The LCD display is also a nice touch, with easy-to-read time and temperature settings, which might make this a nice gift for an older member of your family who might have trouble seeing manual display switches.

There is also a keep warm feature, which means once your meal is cooked, but you aren’t ready to eat it, you can keep it warm without it continuing to cook. This is great for an all-day party (like the Super Bowl), where your guests might be coming back for more all day.

As for price comparisons, Amazon sells this exact unit for $149.95. Bed Bath and Beyond sells it for $159.99. I think this is the best price you’re going to get for this type of slow cooker and you’ll also score free shipping from Shop.ca.

Moosers, care to share some slow cooker recipes with me?

Lululemon Canada: Cabin Yogi Wrap Was $108 | Now $80

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 10:02 AM

Lululemon Canada: Cabin Yogi Wrap Was $108 | Now $80

Lululemon has got this fantastic little wrap on sale for $79.99, with a regular price of $108. That’s almost $30 off. They also always have free shipping.

This wrap is quite an interesting piece. It is sort of a hoodie and a wrap all in one. It is also reversible. What else can it do?

It is made from Boolux fabric, which is a rayon/bamboo blend with Tencel and cashmere, so you know it will be very soft. It has slouchy pockets, which is great, as many wraps or cardigans lack that important feature. It even has thumbholes so you can keep it on how you like it.

I think this is the perfect wrap to wear to and from yoga. I often feel cool after my yoga class and I’d love to wrap this around me and then lay in shavasasna.

The reviews are mixed on this one, with some saying it is awkward to wear. I think it might just take some getting used to. But the good points are that it is durable, very soft and very flattering. Also, no matter what colour the reviewer got, they all sing the praises of that colour.

I’m home on mat leave. It’s a great sweater to wear with a wee one as its soft, warm, snugly and light colour hides any spits.

The inkwell colour is a very flattering colour and probably what I’d choose. Every size is available except 6 and 12. The medium gray/slate colour is the most coziest of colours with only size 8 and 10 in stock. The dark wren has every size available and I think this is the dressiest of the bunch, with the ability to wear this over anything. The heathered white/neutral blush is the most unique of the bunch, available in all sizes except 6. The last colour is black, which has all sizes except 12 available.

You’ll want to take a peek at all of the other We Made Too Much items, as this section looks fuller than normal right now.

Amazon Canada: Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox Was $112 | Now $59 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox Was $112 | Now $59 (EXPIRED)

Spring has sprung! Ok, it hasn’t, but in a few days the local groundhog will tell us whether we’ll be suffering through six more weeks of winter or not. Be prepared ahead of that pesky groundhog and get your yard ready for spring. Amazon has the Step2 Naturally Playful sandbox on sale for $59.12, from a regular price of $111.99.

If you have little kids, a sandbox in their backyard is a dream. I know, because I’ve had a few. When my older kids were toddlers, we had something just like this, which was perfect for them to play in for hours. I could put the lid on at the end of the play session, to ensure local cats weren’t making it a litter box and to keep out water. I eventually moved to a house that had a built-in sandbox and sold the old sandbox for a good price at a garage sale. These things keep their value.

This one from Step2 holds up to 200lbs of sand and has a natural look that won’t clutter up your landscaped yard. It even has little molded seats for the kids who don’t like to get right in there and get dirty. My kids liked getting dirty, so they sat right in the sandbox.

It has great reviews on Amazon, all the moms and kids love it:

Thoroughly researched sandboxes for my 2-year old and this one came out on top, not disappointed. Large enough for him to play in, small enough to fit on our deck… The lid is designed to shed water (other sandboxes with flat lids will collect/pool water), we’ve had a few summer storms and no water has gotten in and soaked the sand.

I of course price compared on other sites and Amazon’s price came out on top. Walmart has a similar, although not as nice looking, sand box on for $69.93, which is the second lowest price I found it for. Amazon’s price is $10 cheaper. Sears has the same one as Amazon selling for $99.99.

Amazon will also ship this sandbox to you for free as well, so that’s a nice bonus to get you ready for the warmer weather ahead. If sand isn’t your thing, I’ve also seen it where parents have filled it up with other sensory items – rice for example – and kept it in their basement playroom.

Purdy’s Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Purdys Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine

What would I do with $250 in Purdy’s chocolate? I would eat it of course! I don’t even know if I would share it. I can speak from experience as I had three boxes at Christmas and I told my kids they couldn’t have any. It was just too good to let children eat it – they are happy with chocolate from the dollar store! Me, on the other hand, I like the good stuff and Purdy’s is my absolute favourite chocolate in the world. In fact, my mom got each of the kids Purdy’s lollipops, which I have had stored in my desk for when they are truly good and deserve a treat, and confession time, I ate one yesterday myself. This chocolate is irresistible.

I wish I could find a way to win this contest, but unfortunately, I can’t. But, all of our loyal Moosers have a chance to win $250 of your choice of chocolate from Purdy’s.

If I had my choice of $250 in Purdy’s chocolate, I’d choose:

the Almost Perfect box – a box of imperfect chocolates because even though its not perfect, I bet its an amazing 3lbs of chocolate ($39.95)

the Himalayan pink salt caramels - these are my absolute favourite and the combination of sweet and salty is so to die for ($19). I’d probably get myself five boxes of these.

Hedgehogs – I might be nice and get these for my kids, or they can have maybe one ($30 for 20pcs). These are so smooth in your mouth!

Sweet Georgia Browns – My mom would crucify me if I didn’t get her a box of these, as they are her absolute favourite. These are like turtles but a million times better. ($17)

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, we can’t forget our sweeties either, and I’d probably get my husband True Love Velvet Heart ($30), and since I’d be the one to win the prize, I’d get him to give me one too Purdys Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine

With the $8 I’d have left, I’d get two of these marshmallow hearts – one for me and another one for me ($2.95).

How to win this prize?

Have a look around Purdy’s site and tell me what chocolate makes your mouth water!

Walmart Canada: Game of Risk Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 29, 2015 at 1:54 PM

Walmart Canada: Game of Risk Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Get some Risk in your life right now for only $14.93 from Walmart and it will ship to you for free on top! Regularly $24.93, this game is a must-have.

I’ve been playing Risk since I was a wee girl and I still play it on a regular basis now. I mainly play because I’m very good at it and I win a lot and I like winning. Well, I also play because it is a fun game of world domination and who doesn’t love taking over the entire world? I have fond memories of family members flipping the board up on its end when they lose and not speaking for weeks. I’m just kidding about that part, although emotions really can run high when playing Risk.

My two older sons love playing this game as well, and while they aren’t the greatest at strategy yet (I want all the things!), rolling the dice and deciding which parent they don’t like as much at the moment to attack is pretty simple for them. Usually its me because, like I said, I usually win. I just tell them they need to get another 30 or so years playing under their belt like I’ve had.

I actually owned the original game from 1975 at one point, but my dog was not happy with me one day and tore it to shreds. I do have a new copy, although I paid $25 for it and didn’t get this deal right here. I guess I don’t always win. Either way, this is a fun family game and for $15, you’ll want this with your stash of board games.

This is the cheapest price out there, although Amazon sells it for $14.88, you won’t get free shipping and to my house, that added another $7. Toys R Us sells it for the full price of $24.99.

If you don’t want to take my word for it, read some of the reviews, like this one from Amazon:

Joe Fresh Canada: Fresh Expedition Puffer Was $229 | Now $75 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 29, 2015 at 9:48 AM

Joe Fresh Canada: Fresh Expedition Puffer Was $229 | Now $75 & Free Shipping

Winter jacket deals abound and this one from Joe Fresh is no exception. Regularly $229, get the Fresh Expedition puffer for only $75 and free shipping.

You may be wondering how I got the jacket down to the $75 price when you are seeing a price of $99.94. It does get a teeny bit tricky, but I know you can do it. Right now, Joe Fresh has a coupon code out for $25 off $100 when you enter in TAKENOTE. The problem is, this jacket falls just $0.06 short. What I did is find something in the clearance aisles that would get me just over $100 and made it well worth getting this jacket! You’d have a total savings of $150, plus whatever you save on your clearance item.

I really love Joe Fresh jackets. My boys have one and so do I. They are very warm and totally stylish. This one has a shiny look to it, which tells me it could be water resistant as well. It is long enough to cover the bum, which I like because it keeps that part of me warm! On top of that it is not too long to make you look severely bundled.

If you want some ideas on items that you could pair along with this jacket to get the extra $25 off, check out this contrast accent tank that was $16 and is now only $2.94.

You could also head over the men’s section and grab this men’s number sweatshirt that was previously $39 and now only $9.94. I know my husband always appreciates when I spend $10 on him (and $100 on myself hehe). I’m just really giving like that.

Don’t leave the kids out either. My boys have quite a few button up plaid shirts, as I think they can look dressy, but still look cool for school. This kid boy’s plaid mix shirt is only $6.94, with a regular price of $16.

Shipping is free on a $50 purchase, so if you are getting the coat or using the coupon, you won’t have those charges on top either.

Gap Canada: Metallic Stripe Crew Tee Was $30 | Now $5

Posted by on January 29, 2015 at 9:21 AM

Gap Canada: Metallic Stripe Crew Tee Was $30 | Now $5

Looking to stock up on some cute tees? Gap Canada has a great deal on metallic stripe crew tees. Regularly $29.95, they are on sale for $8.99. Once you also add the promo code GAPHAPPY, you’ll get another 40% off, bringing your total down to $5.39.

This top is great with both jeans and leggings, with a loose fit and a simple design. This is a great lounging top, although I could definitely see it getting dressed up with some jewellery or a scarf. The Heather Gray is the one that is cheapest. If you want other colours like oatmeal stripe, true black or blue, they come down to $6.59 after discount.

The reviews are great on this top:

This is a really cute shirt, but it does run small because it is a slim fit cut. I recommend ordering one size up to get a regular Gap fit. I like the shirt so much I am keeping the smaller one in my usual size and plan to order a second larger one. It’s also a bit translucent along the metallic stripes, manageable in the black, but you might need a cami under the lighter colored ones. Also keep that in mind for sizing.

Because shipping is free on orders over $50, you’ll either want to get 10 tops (which is probably not feasible), or you’ll want to search around for other items that you can pair with the GAPHAPPY coupon. Paying $8 in shipping for a $5 top just doesn’t make sense to me. You can also shop Banana Republic or Old Navy and combine your cart to get up to your minimum of $50.

Personally, I’d rather shop around and I found an amazing deal on this Gap fur-trim down puffer. Regularly $158, after coupon code you’ll get this coat for only $44.99! That’s a pretty amazing price for a Gap winter coat. Reading the reviews, I was getting nervous that this coat wouldn’t be warm enough for a Canadian winter as all the reviewers that said it was super warm were from places like L.A. or New Orleans. But then this Saskatoon resident chimed in and I felt better about it!

I really like this coat. The furry hood is super cute and warm. When I put it on, I noticed right away that it’s puffier around the middle than it appears on the model, so it’s not as slim fitting as some puffer jackets are, but I don’t feel like a balloon animal in it either.

Jetsetter Promo Code: 10% Off Hotels In the Caribbean, Mexico & Hawaii

Planning to get away somewhere hot this year or next? JetSetter has a fabulous coupon that will get you an extra 10% off your bookings in the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii. While 10% doesn’t seem like much, I found vast differences in price compared to other travel sites, making JetSetter the place to book your vacation.

Click here to get out of Canada with Jetsetter.com now

  • Coupon Code: SUNKISSED10
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 6th February 2015

I just got back from my vacation in the South and it was wonderful. We didn’t have a bad day of weather and the temperature hovered around 30 degrees all week. It was a dreamy week of sand and sun with my family. Coming back to the face-hurting cold was super sad and I’m already planning my next vacation in my mind! Hawaii, as you might know from a previous post I did on flights to Hawaii, is definitely on the list of next vacations.

I decided to check out some prices of hotels in Hawaii and found that JetSetter’s price was fantastic.

Take for example the Mauna Lani hotel. I quoted for five nights from February 15th to the 20th in a garden view room. Once I added the coupon code, my price became $2115 total for all the nights. Keep in mind that this is a U.S.-based site so the prices are in USD. I compared it to Expedia where I got a total for the same nights of $3374.20. Even with the exchange rate, that is quite a difference!

Another trip I’d love to take is to take my kids to Atlantis in the Bahamas. I know its going to be expensive, so we need to save our pennies, but I was very happy to see that JetSetter’s price was lower than what I had previously researched elsewhere. After adding the coupon code, the Beach Tower for the same dates as above would cost me $2787.58. At Expedia, it costs $3726.89.

If I haven’t convinced you that you need and can afford a vacation, you might want to check out this video that shows you what Atlantis is all about. It has me convinced!

Before you book any vacation, look to the forum for JetSetter coupon codes.

Great Wolf Lodge Promo Code: Family Room As Low as $168

I went to Great Wolf Lodge over the Christmas break and guess what we paid per night? $500 per night! While it was well worth it because we absolutely love Great Wolf Lodge, I much prefer deals where I can get a room for less than $170. Great Wolf Lodge has a promo code out right now that will get you 20% off any stay from now until the beginning of April.

Click here to book your adventure @ Greatwolf.com now

  • Coupon Code: GR8DEAL
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 28th February 2015

You’ve got until the end of today to book, although if you really want to go, you might want to book soon as prices go up as rooms are booked. I know this from experience when a few years ago, we got the last room available and it was a steep price. The things I do for my kids I tell you!

There are blackout dates that you should know about, but I’m pleased to say March Break is not one of them. I’m considering booking a night over the break and may just do that right now. The blackout dates are:

  • January 30th
  • February 14-18
  • March 7th

I found a family suite or queen sofa suite for only $167.99. Regularly these are $209.99 for that date. You’ll have to play around with the dates to figure out when you can go or when it is cheapest, but Wednesday nights are coming up the cheapest for me.

If you are mostly concerned with the Ontario March Break, the suites are regularly $339.99, but you’ll get them for $271.99 on Wednesday March 18th. That’s still a great savings if you can’t get off work or don’t want to take the kids out of school to go. I personally don’t mind taking them out of school to go away, although it is fun to have something to do over the break.

Before you book any vacation, be sure to check the Great Wolf Lodge coupon page for the latest coupons.

Lowes Canada: GE 23 Bottle Wine Chiller Was $300 | Now $150 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 28, 2015 at 10:34 AM

Lowes Canada: GE 23 Bottle Wine Chiller Was $300 | Now $150 (EXPIRED)

Lowes has a fantastic one-day only deal today, with the GE 23 bottle capacity wine chiller on for only $149, with a regular price of $299. You’ll also get free shipping on this order.

Checking into the history of this wine chiller, Lowes had this on sale for Boxing Week at $179, so this is a very sweet deal!

Just to give you a comparison on GE wine chillers, this one from Best Buy looks a little larger and sells for $299. I couldn’t find this exact model to give you a price comparison, but looking at the bargain basement prices on Walmart, their 8-bottle wine coolers are about $150.

My husband recently built me a gorgeous wine rack, but being that I love my wine, I think I’d also love a wine cooler to store my whites and even my reds. Contrary to popular belief, red wine is best a little chilled, not at room temperature.

This wine chiller has adjustable temperature control and adjustable chrome plate racks, so you can choose the size of the bottles you’d like to put in. It has a 2.4 cu. foot capacity with a stainless steel exterior. I think stainless steel is the nicest finish as it would go well in any kitchen.

You see through the door to know when your stock is low as well, but the glass is tinted, as not to ruin the wine.

I also like the bottom has a sort of basket, that would be perfect for cans, like beer or pop, so if you are having a party, you only need one appliance to keep it all cool.

There aren’t any reviews available, but what more can you say about this wine chiller? It keeps the wine cool, it holds 23 bottles and it is made by GE, which is a reputable name in appliances.

Because this is such a low price and it is a today only deal, I wouldn’t wait to get your wine on.

NCIX Canada Promo Code: JBL Sound Bar With Wireless SubWoofer Was $700 | Now $400

NCIX Canada Promo Code: JBL Sound Bar With Wireless SubWoofer Was $700 | Now $400

NCIX has a hot deal on today with the JBL SB400 sound bar with wireless subwoofer. Regularly $699.99, use the coupon code to get $300 off and pay only $399.99.

Click here to shop @ NCIX.com now

  • Coupon Code: JBLSAVE300
  • Discount: $300 off
  • Expiry: Unknown

With pretty much everything you’d want from a sound system, the Cinema SB400 lets you watch movies and listen to music with gorgeous sound quality. I’ll let you read all about the specs – from full bass control to dual-position equalization, because I honestly have no idea what all of this means. I’ll let the audiophiles figure it out!

What I will tell you is that this is a fantastic deal, as I could only find this priced at $699 at every other store. So, when I say you save $300, you really do save $300 on the regular price of this unit at all online retailers in Canada.

Best Buy sells it for $699.99. Amazon has it on sale for $704.98. Electronics For Less sells it for $749.99. I even did a little research on sales on this item previously and it was on for a Boxing Day sale for $500, so this price is seriously good!

While NCIX doesn’t have any reviews listed, I found a few tidbits on Amazon that I will share with you:

From an aesthetic view, the bar and sub combo is simply gorgeous. The bar features a design gently curving back on its ends. The top adorned quite minimalistly with a few buttons for things such as power, volume, inputs and bluetooth pairing.

Considering there are no options to adjust the levels, you are at the mercy of what the engineers at JBL designed for the system. Let me tell you: wow. The sound is incredible. At low volume (20%), the sound is loud, powerful, clear and vibrant.

I was giggling a bit about a reviewer who said that a neighbour had somehow paired to this device through Bluetooth and he woke up to blaring rap music. Do your research about how to not have this happen to you, unless you want to discover your neighbour’s favourites!

Shipping depends on where you live and to me it was about $18, which is pretty steep, but still worth it for the savings you get. Be sure to check out the other coupon codes now available for NCIX.

Best Buy Canada: Baby Bjorn Active Front Carrier Was $180 | Now $70

Best Buy Canada: Baby Bjorn Active Front Carrier Was $180 | Now $70

If you are looking for a hot deal that is going to sell out quickly and you’ve got a new parent to buy for or are a new parent, check out this deal at Best Buy. Get the Baby Bjorn Active front carrier for $69.99, with a regular price of $179.99, and you’ll also get free shipping.

I’ve blogged about Baby Bjorn a few times when it has gone on sale at Best Buy, but the price has never been this low.

Baby Bjorn carriers are life-savers. When you have a newborn, you feel like all you do is sit on the couch and hold the baby, or walk the room while holding the baby. The baby loves to be held. You probably wonder how anyone gets anything done while holding a baby. Simple answer – they don’t. This is where the carrier comes in to play. You can do your dishes, make your dinner, do your grocery shopping, even vacuum your house with your baby in the carrier. It will be quite a workout, but think about all the post-baby weight you’ll lose lugging around an extra 10-20 pounds on your body each day.

I loved taking my toddlers for walks in the stroller, while carrying the baby in the carrier. I also liked to do groceries with him in the carrier as he got to see so much more than he would have in his car seat. I remember him kicking his pudgy legs when I’d hand him an orange to hold.

This carrier is a bit different from the basic one I had, as it includes lumbar support. I would have loved that as I have a weak back and it would have helped a lot.

It says there are limited quantities so I wouldn’t wait to get this as it could sell out quickly. The sale is also today only. Because it is over $25, it will ship to you for free.

Costco Canada: Blendtec Designer Series With Wildside & Mini Twister Jar Was $500 | Now $400 & Free Shipping

Costco Canada: Blendtec Designer Series With Wildside & Mini Twister Jar Was $500 | Now $400 & Free Shipping

Costco’s got a fantastic deal on for all of you who have been waiting for the Blendtec blender to go on sale. Save $100 on the Blendtec Designer Series mode with the Wildside and the mini twister jars. Get it for $399, with a regular price of $499 and of course, it will also ship for free.

I did a bit of research on Blendtec before I wrote this deal, making sure this is the best price out there. We’ve previously blogged about Blendtec, but on the professional series and I wanted to know what the difference was between the two. Apparently both blenders perform pretty much the same, but there have been some great changes added to this model that beat out the professional series.

It has 16 custom blending speeds, which beats out the five or ten speeds of the others. It has touch screen controls, which the other series does not have. You can of course blend almost anything in it, including making soup that you can eat right out of the jar as it warms up in the blender!

The twister jar is a nice new feature that Costco sells with this blender and other retailers do not. It lets you blend the thicker recipes like nut butters and baby food and salad dressings. Sometimes you don’t want to wash a large jar just to make a small serving of salad dressing.

This makes a fabulous Valentine’s gift for the love of your life as you might not splurge on this for yourself, but you would for the person who has always stuck by your side. Plus, you get to take advantage of what they make as well.

Shopping around, Best Buy also has this blender on for $100 off, but they don’t include the mini twister jar. Future Shop is the same. Those are the cheapest prices I’ve seen it, as there are some smaller health stores selling it for upwards of $500. This mini twister jar sells for $129.99, which makes this deal at Costco far superior over the prices at Best Buy and Future Shop.

This very recent review sums it up nicely:

I researched high end blenders for 7 years before finally deciding on the Blendtec Designer model. I tried both this and the Vitamix. I love the pre-set program cycles which I use most of the time. They work great for me, as I startle easily at loud noises and would probably not be able to hold button down long enough to do a good job…this way I just press the button and let the machine grind away! This deal for $399 with the twister jar is the best price I have ever seen and is $80 less than what I paid for the blender alone last year. The wildside jar is sold for $120-$150, so really this is like getting $220-$250 off regular price!
