EB Games: Trade 3, 5 or 7 Games to get $10, $20 or $30 in Extra Credit

EB Games: Trade 3, 5 or 7 Games to get $10, $20 or $30 in Extra Credit

Trade mo’ games, get mo’ money. Bonus credit when you trade in more games.

I never trade games. That’s just because I don’t buy a lot of games so the games I do get are ones I really, really want and are at the top of my list. They are part of my collection and I want to keep them. That being said there are a lot of people out there who don’t have the same emotional attachment to their games as I do. There are a lot of people who buy way, way more games than I do, too. When you buy six different FPS’ in the course of a year, it’s easier to part with some of them.

If you do have a bunch of games to trade, check this deal out. When you put three games up for store credit they will give you an extra $10. Five games gets you $20 in-store credit and you get an extra $30 credit if you trade in seven games. This is all on top of whatever you are getting for the games themselves.

There are a couple of rules though. You can only trade in games for PS4, Xbox One, XB360, PS3, PSV, WiiU, and 3DS and the games have to have a minimum trade value of $5. That means no old sports games, guys!

Microsoft Canada: Upgrade from XP and get $100 off, 90 Days Support and Free Data Transfer with new Computer

Microsoft Canada: Upgrade from XP and get $100 off, 90 Days Support and Free Data Transfer with new Computer

The sky is falling and XP is dying! Take advantage of OS death and upgrade with Microsoft Stores!

If you haven’t heard, I’m very, very disappointed in you. Windows XP support ended a few days ago. That means the thirteen year old operating system that you’re using is no longer supported. No more updates, no more tech support from Microsoft, no more illusion of security. It’s all gone. And you better believe if I was a black hat hacker, I’d be furiously working to release a virus to wreak havoc on Windows XP computers. Steal information, hold files ransom, crash systems. I highly suspect that this will happen and you know what? Microsoft doesn’t care. They aren’t going to help you when you get in trouble.

Thankfully they will help you upgrade to Windows 8. Right now if you buy a new PC at MicrosoftStore.com you can get $100 off, 90 days of free support and free data transfer. That last part, for normal users, is huge. All the info on your computer will be transferred to the new one automagically.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind here. The $100 off in only valid on computers or Surface Pro 2 tablets over $599. If you are going to one of the few Canadian bricks and mortar Microsoft Stores, you need to bring your XP machine to trade in.

PizzaPizza: Free Slice of Pizza When you Trade in an old Ink Cartridge or Small Electronic

Posted by on April 7, 2014 at 10:00 AM

PizzaPizza: Free Slice of Pizza When you Trade in an old Ink Cartridge or Small Electronic

Trade in junk for Pizza Pizza pizza. Free Pizza Pizza pizza!

Apparently every April since 2004 Pizza Pizza has given away free pizza in exchange for used electronics and ink cartridges. It’s a pretty good deal especially when you consider the stuff they take. They’re taking cameras, adapters, tablets, iPods, ink cartridges, mobile and smart phones. I don’t know about you buy I have tons of old adapters and phones laying around that are going to sit here until I die and my kids throw it out when they’re cleaning up the house to sell. I’m sure there are people out there who are throwing away or recycling a bunch of ink cartridges every year, too. Keep those somewhere and then fill up on free pizza when April rolls around.

On top of the free pizza, Pizza Pizza is donating and proceeds they get from refurbishing the electronics to Children’s Miracle Network. Now, one stat that kind of boggled my mind is that they have only given away 8000 slices since 2005. That’s just 800 every year. I want to blow this thing up so my call to you, dear Bargainmoosers, is to share this story with all your friends and start digging through piles of crap. Look for old charge cables, the power cord for the game console your kid broke, the six year old phone, the small pyramid of ink cartridges you’ve erected on your desk, anything that even remotely fits this list and bring it in.

To summarize: get rid of your useless crap, get free cheese or pepperoni pizza, give to charity.

Rogers: Reserve a Samsung Galaxy S5 and get a $50 Pre-Paid Mastercard (Only 10,000 Available)

Posted by on April 5, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Rogers: Reserve a Samsung Galaxy S5 and get a $50 Pre Paid Mastercard (Only 10,000 Available)

Reserve Samsung’s newest flagship phone at Rogers and get a $50 prepaid Mastercard!

This is a limited quantity offer so I don’t know how many are left or how long it will last. If you want to get in on this deal, do it right now.

If you are one of the first 10,000 people to reserve the new Samsung Galaxy S5 on a two year plan from Rogers, you will get a $50 pre-paid Mastercard which is good, because these phones are getting expensive. The pre-paid card won’t be a physical card, it will be on this totally awesome new technology called SureTap, which is going to be a place to pay for things using your smartphone! I had the OG Galaxy S and I currently have a Galaxy Note II both of which were going for $200 on a two year plan. I think I got a deal on the Note II but still, it was retailing at $200. And I thought $200 was expensive. Now they are bumping it up to $249.99. Why, back in my day I could go to the phone store with a nickel, buy three smart phones and still have enough left to make a mortgage payment.

But that’s just the way things go nowadays so you might as well take advantage of the deal and get a great phone while you’re at it. The Samsung phones really are great hardware. If you have a Galaxy S4 or a higher end phone from that generation, you probably don’t need to upgrade as the jump isn’t that great but if you have something around a Galaxy S3 or a lower end phone, this is a great one to get.

The Low Carb Grocery Coupon Code: $5 off Purchase of $39 or More!

Posted by on April 5, 2014 at 6:30 PM

The Low Carb Grocery Coupon Code: $5 off Purchase of $39 or More!

Cut carbs, costs. Coupon!

Clcik here to shop @ TheLowCarbGrovery.com

  • Coupon Code: INFU-WAE
  • Discount: $5 off order of $39 or more
  • Expiry: Unknown

I have a weird relationship with low carbs. Let’s start with this – I’m fat. Big fat, fatty. My dad used to be fat too. Then he started eating low carb and lost weight. A lot of weight. And he started doing it like 15 years ago. I wanted to drop some weight too but it’s hard to get a 13 year old to stop eating bread and sugar and potatoes so I got fatter and he didn’t. But I always knew if I wanted to lose weight, I just had to do low carb. So some time around the age of 27 I grew up and started low carb and did really good. I lost like 60 pounds. Then I stopped. Because I’m dumb.

Now I’m back on it and places like The Low Carb Grocery really help the process along. Actually, it doesn’t help me as much as it will normal people. You see, I have no problem with eating the same thing constantly. Bacon and eggs twice a day for six days in a row. Yep, no problem. Nothing but bunless cheese burgers for a week. Sure, bring it on. My dad is the same way. But most people can’t do that. Most people get burnt out on the same food every day fairly quickly. For those people, The Low Carb Grocery is the way to go. Most places don’t have grocery stores specific to low carb diets. They might (MIGHT) have a small low carb section but for the most part you’re stuck with the standard low carb fare. That’s good most of the time for most people but every once in a while you want something different. You want low carb pita pockets or noodles or syrup or whatever else. Unless you live in a big city, this isn’t an option. The Low Carb Grocery has all that stuff. They even have non-food items that help you with a low carb diet such as CBlock, a pill that let’s you eat carbs. Perfect for times that you’ve been invited to someones house for dinner and you don’t want to be “that person” who brings their own diet-specific food to dinner or walks away with a pile of hamburgers and chicken but no buns or macaroni salad at the family BBQ. And don’t even get me started on the disparate treatment of vegetarians and low carbers!

Shipping is based on what you get and where you are. If you’re trying to do a whole grocery here, you’re gonna break the bank but a box of cookies and a bottle of CBlock isn’t gonna be too bad.

Keep on checking back for more The Low Carb Grocery Coupons!

Futureshop Canada: $10 off Titanfall for xBox One (Just $50)

Futureshop Canada: $10 off Titanfall for xBox One (Just $50)

Get one of the hottest new games on the xBox One for $10 less from FutureShop!

Titanfall is the new hotness. It is, in my opinion, the first game worth buying an xBox One for. I haven’t played it yet but it looks really cool and from what other people are saying, it’s amazing. It has an 86% on MetaCritic. Now, I say it’s amazing but I think it’s amazing for some people. It seems that people who like it really, really like it and people who don’t like it absolutely despise everything about it. There is some middle ground but for the most part it’s a love or hate thing.

Regardless, I think it’s great and the way they made a story-driven online-only game is really interesting. I don’t really do any online gaming so I thought it was kind of dumb to have a banner game like this with no offline mode but the developers said in an interview that only about 5% of people ever finish the single player campaign so I guess it makes sense that they are doing an online only thing.

Right now you can get he xBox One version of Titanfall for only $49.99. That’s $10 off the normal $59.99 price tag. Shipping is free or you can reserve in store.

You can also get the deal at BestBuy.

My Story Doctor: Get David Farland’s NaNoWriMi Inspirations eBook Full of Writing Tips for Free!

Posted by on April 4, 2014 at 5:30 PM

My Story Doctor: Get David Farlands NaNoWriMi Inspirations eBook Full of Writing Tips for Free!

Let a pro keep you motivated while you NaNoWriMo or any time!

Depending on if you are a Sci Fi person or a Fantasy person you may know David Farland also as Dave Wolverton. He goes by both depending on what genre he is writing. For this book he’s using Farland.

So who is this guy? Well, he’s best know in the writing world for his Runelord series but he has written a lot of books all of which you can read about on The Book of Knowledge, Wikipedia. I’ve never read any of his books but on of my favourite authors, Brandon Sanderson, took a writing course from Farland and said that that one course was more important to his writing career than everything else he did on his way to a Master’s Degree in English. Sanderson writes my favourite books and if Farland made him in to the writer he is today, well, I’m all in.

Farland offers online and in-person writing workshops via MyStoryDoctor but for the people who can’t get to Utah or don’t want to lay down the hundreds of dollars to get some help from him, you can get a copy of his NaNoWriMo Inspirations book. It sells for $2.99 but if you sign up to the My Story Doctor website, you can get it in ePub or Kindle format for free. Just sign up, sign in and click on the Free Stuff link up at the top to download it.

The book is meant to give you a new lesson each day of NaNoWriMo to keep you writing. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and it takes place in November each year. Basically you take a month and write a full novel. Farland’s lessons for the first four days of NaNoWriMo are:

  • Day 1: Be Your Own Inspiration
  • Day 2: Staying Motivated
  • Day 3: Plotting a Story
  • Day 4: Thinking About Your Setting

Microsoft Store: 64GB Surface RT Tablet + Free Touch Cover (Only $299!)

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Microsoft Store: 64GB Surface RT Tablet + Free Touch Cover (Only $299!)

Get a great tablet at a great price!

I’m here to defend Microsoft. Are you feeling okay, Shawn? Yeah, I’m okay. A little tired but I’m good. Why do you ask? Because you hate Microsoft, Shawn! Why would  you defend them? Well, it’s kind of like a punk rock teenager who hates the establishment cleaning himself up and getting a job at Starbucks while he gets his GED so he can go to college. It’s fine to rage and hate against something blindly but sooner or later (most) people grow up. I used to hate everything Microsoft did, now I’ve come to realize that it’s not all bad. I’ve grown up. That’s right, even me, a nerdy version of anti-establishment punks, can see that Microsoft Surface is a good product.

First off, it’s Microsoft. Most people use Microsoft Windows on their computers so most people are familiar with it. The Windows RT OS that runs on Surface tablets is very similar (almost identical, actually) to the the latest desktop version of the OS, Windows 8. If you’ve been using Windows 8, the tablet is going to be a pick-up-and-go product since you already know the UI. If you, like many people, have looked at Windows 8 and thought that it would really be better on a tablet, well, here’s the tablet with (essentially) Windows 8 on it.

On top of all that you’re getting a full sized 10″ tablet with 64GB of storage AND a free touch cover for only $299. That’s a steal. Listen, I’m no dummy. If you have a Macbook and an iPhone, you are probably sunk in to the Apple world too much to get this. If you’ve bought a new Android phone every year since the G1 came out and you use your stack of old Android tablets as a step stool, you probably aren’t going to switch now. Of maybe you are, maybe you want a change. I think the real market for this deal is the person with a flip phone and a Windows computer. Or the proverbial grandma who will never learn to use a computer but could really use it to talk to her grandkids in Russia. Or even the person who already has a Windows phone. I don’t see many around but some of those Nokia Windows phones are great.

Shipping on these is free.

PuttingEdge Printable Coupon: Upgrade up to Four People to Unlimited Play Glow Mini Golf

Get your Glow Mini Golf on for as long as you want with this printable coupon!

Woah! Something I’ve been to! I don’t do much. I’m kind of a stay at home sort of dude. I’ve done a few things, seen some cool sights and been to some neat attractions but by and large I haven’t been to a lot of really cool places. Even a lot of the restaurants we write up here on BargainMoose are foreign to me. So when I saw the Putting Edge coupon pop up I checked the locations right away. As it turns out, I’ve actually been to their Halifax, NS location!

Putting Edge is an indoor glow mini golf course. Basically just a regular mini golf course with black lights. It’s a bit in your face so if glow bowling bugs you or if the last time you wandered in to a rave you were annoyed that you couldn’t just sit and read your book quietly under a nice 60 Watt incandescent, you won’t want to go.

Each location has their own hours and price page but so far all the locations I’ve checked have been $8.50 for 12 & under and $10.50 for 13 & older. Unlimited play cost and extra $2/person. This coupon waives the unlimited play fee.

They have locations in Ontario, Quebec and one in Nove Scotia. They are also in Orlando, St. Louis, Denver, Detroit and Chicago if you happen to be there.

  • Discount: $25 off any service
  • Expiry: 30th April 2014

You know when you see on the news that some company has found a way to break bricks with cheese? Well, that information doesn’t just drop in to the newscaster’s lap. It’s falls in to the lap of some severely underpaid slave who types it up and proceeds to hand it up a chain of people until it gets to someone important enough to drop it in the lap of the newscaster. But how does that lowly goon find the information in his or her lap?

Press releases. Specifically, good press releases. Press releases by companies like eReleases. eReleases offers Press Release writing and distribution starting at $199 for the NewswireLite service up the the $499 PR Pro. Obviously the $25 you’re saving with this coupon code is worth more on the cheaper services but $25 saves is $25 saved, right? Every little bit helps. Of course they also offer full PR services but they cost thousands of dollars and while I’m sure they’ll give you $25, it’s kind of silly at that point.

So if you wan’t CNN to talk about your mom-and-pop brick-breaking cheese shop, take a look at eReleases and get pro Press Releases in front of people who matter!

Check out this post I wrote a bit ago. You can get a free eBooks on Press Releases and some other goodies!

Google: Chromecast – Stream Websites, Netflix and More from your Android or iOS to your TV for only $39!

Posted by on April 1, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Google: Chromecast   Stream Websites, Netflix and More from your Android or iOS to your TV for only $39!

Chromecast has come to save you from terrible interfaces and expensive equipment. Stream with ease for only $39!

Chromecast! I’ve been wanting a Chromecast for a long time but they were only available in the U.S. I was going to get one when I went to the states in December but I didn’t end up going. Then I was going to get one when I went to the states last month but they went and released it in Canada. So now I can buy them by the bucket load and have them delivered right to me!

Right, so what is a Chromecast, why do you want one and why is it on a deals site? A Chromecast is a little stick you plug in to the HDMI port on your HDTV or computer monitor. From there you can stream stuff from your Android phone to your TV. Simple as that. Plug the stick in, open up a Chromecast enabled app on your Android phone, hit the Chromecast button in the app and it pops up on your TV. It had been just the Google Chrome browser, YouTube and Netflix that you could be Chromecasted but Google recently opened up the API so tons of apps are becoming Chromecast enabled. There are even a bunch of music streaming services opening it up so you can play music fro your favourite service through your TV sound system.

That all sounds good but why do you, the consumer, want this? Partially for ease of use and partially for the price. We’ll get to price later so let’s talk ease of use. I don’t know how you watch Netflix now but if it’s on your TV, there is a chance that the experience sucks. if you are using a smart TV with a Netflix or YouTube app, for example, I can almost promise that it stinks. Smart TV apps are almost universally clunky, slow and outdated. A lot of Android apps are the opposite of that. They are intuitive and kept up to date. Chromecast let’s you use the touchscreen interface of your Android phone or tablet to control what’s on your TV.

And there is price. Chromecast is only $39. That’s right. $39. Compare that to almost any streaming box like a Roku, Boxee, Apple TV or WD Live TV and it’s going to be cheaper by at least $60. That’s why it’s on this site. Even when it’s not on sale, it’s over 50% cheaper than anyone else. And while another box might have Netflix and YouTube and maybe a few other apps, the Chromecast supports any app that enables it. Making your app Chromecast enabled is supposed to be super easy to just about every video or audio app out there is enabling it. If your favourite app isn’t Chromecast enabled, drop the developer an email and make sure they get on it!

If you want to stream stuff from the internet of your personal media library to your TV Chromecast is, without doubt, the way to go.

Threadless: All T-shirts $12 USD Today Only!

Posted by on April 1, 2014 at 7:49 AM

Threadless: All T shirts $12 USD Today Only!

Get any t-shirt Threadless has for $12! Be quick, though, it ends tonight!

Threadless has a bunch of awesome t-shirts but it’s usually hard for me to justify getting them. The shirts usually hover around $20 and shipping is $9,99. That makes it $30 for one shirt. If you get two or three shirts at a time, the shipping per shirt isn’t too bad. But then you’re buying $70 worth of shirts. I’m lucky if I spend $70 on new clothes for myself in the run of a year. With this sale, even if you get get one shirt, it’s only $21.99. That’s pretty much normal price for a shirt.

Threadless really has a staggering number of cool designs, not just regurgitated jokes for a Will Farrell movie with some generic art. There is some pop-culture stuff but you can also get really beautiful art like All of Time and Space or something to make you laugh  like two T-Rex’ trying to hug or Omnomnomnivore. There really is something for everyone here and for $12, well, how sweet a deal is that?

All prices are in USD. If you add a bunch of shirts or live in a tree house in Nunavut, you might be charged more for shipping.

The deal is only for 24 hours and I got the email at about 2:30AM ET. I’m going to assume that means the deal ends around that time on the 2nd April 2014.

The Source: 3DS XL + Mario & Luigi Dream Team for only $170!

Posted by on February 27, 2014 at 7:30 PM

The Source: 3DS XL + Mario & Luigi Dream Team for only $170!

Save $70 on a 3DS XL + Mario and Luigi Dream Team from The Source!

First off, the retail on this  seems to be $199.99 and you’re getting it for only $169.99 so I guess maybe you’re only saving $30. But the game is $40 by itself and the console is $200 by itself. Technically if you bought the game and the console separately you’d save $70 by getting this deal. Regardless, it’s a good deal. The 3DS is the clear king of the handhelds right now and Mario, well, Mario games are Mario games. Not much else to say about either of these things…

…but I need to fill space so let’s talk about Mario and Luigi Dream Team. I am an RPG guy. I have played primarily RPGs during my life as a gamer. Out of all the RPGs I’ve played, some of the best are Mario RPGs. I’ve played three RPGs in the Mario universe and they have all been great. There might be some bad RPGs in the Mario world but I haven’t seen them and from the reviews on this one, Mario and Luigi Dream team is not one of them.

It has a solid 8/10 on meta critic and from the gameplay videos I’ve watched it looks like the classic blend of platformer and RPG what any fan or Mario RPGs have come to love. If you haven’t had the pleasure of an RPG with your favourite Mario characters this is a great way to dive right in to a great handheld console and a fantastic game for an awesome price.

Oh, and I almost forgot, you get a 3DS XL with a cool Mario and Luigi design on it! Pretty neat.

Shipping is free.
