Staples Canada: Mousepad Only $10

Posted by on November 17, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Staples Canada: Mousepad Only $10

The Logitech G240 mouse pad is now $9.99 at Staples and it regularly retails for $19.99.

It doesn’t come with any free shipping offers but you can check the store inventory and reserve it to pick up in store instead. It has free shipping when you spend $45 and so if you have regular purchases to make from Staples you can add this to your purchase.

If you want to buy a stocking filler for the gamer in your life this would make a good start.  It would also make a good gift for anyone who has to travel for work and needs to make an awkward space into a work surface that the mouse will move on while on the go.

The mouse pad comes with a 3-year warranty, which suggests that it will last, since the manufacturers are willing to back a product that will get heavy wear and tear. It will work particularly well with other Logitech products as it is matched to Logitech G sensors, but it will work with any mouse.

Reviewers of this product had this to say:

Overall a very thin, smooth mouse pad which is pretty big too, so you get good $/square feet ratio. However, the mouse pad is a dust magnet so watch out if you’re using it with a mouse that tends to have problems when dust accumulates in its sensor or mouse feet. This mouse pad’s MSRP is expensive. Would only recommend when it goes on sale.

The normal price of this mouse pad is more than I would pay, but I agree with the reviewer the sale makes it something I would definitely be interested in. It can make your experience with an everyday item like your mouse a little less frustrating.

Amazon Canada: Seinfeld Complete Series Only $50/ Was $150

Posted by on November 17, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Seinfeld Complete Series Only $50/ Was $150

Retro TV shows are the best. Retro TV box sets are even better. The Seinfeld: Complete Box Set is on sale for $49.99 down from $149.99 on Amazon.ca and with free shipping.

Here is another great gift for the hard to buy for person on your list – years worth of laughs from a comedy legend like Seinfeld. The series is worth buying on DVD since you can watch your favorite episodes instead of whatever is available on a given day on TV. You can also lend discs to friends and family.

The 180 episodes of Seinfeld are not available on Netflix as of yet or any other free streaming media. Even if there is a deal for it to come to Netflix or similar they may not make all of the episodes available all of the time. The DVD box set also has a few extras like bloopers and deleted scenes, which will appeal to die-hard fans of the series. It also comes with subtitles in several languages for the hearing impaired.

There are lots of positive reviews to choose from on Amazon.ca and very few negative. There are 53 reviews of this product and there is one low review of 3 stars. The 3 star rating was only because the buyer switched the menu to Spanish and was unsure of how to change it back.

One reviewer had this to say :

Great series, great price. Seinfeld is a show you can watch over and over again. I’m constantly referencing real life situations to specific episodes. The ensemble cast was perfect and the ‘show about nothing’ covered such a wide swath of situations not normally seen on sitcom tv. The box set is wonderfully packaged in a compact and easy to access format. Looking forward to getting through all the extra material on the dvds. Highly recommended buy!

With savings like this it is an easy option to give the 90s tv fan in your life the gift of watching their favorite show about “nothing” this season.

Posted by on November 16, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Girls LCD Watches Were $12 Now Only $5 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (Quick)

If you are starting shopping for gifts early, Walmart has a great option right now. Various girls Disney Princess LCD watches are on clearance for only $5 with free shipping. There are a few favorite Disney characters to choose from like Cinderella, and Tinkerbell. This is an online only deal, these watches are not sold in Walmart stores.

These watches are suitable for three years and up so not only is it a great toy or accessory it can also teach your little one to keep track of time. The Disney Pricess watch comes with three covers featuring a different Disney princess. I have a little cousin who loves to pick out her own clothing and it would be a great option for her to also pick with princess cover she might like to wear too.

The watch case itself has a stainless steel backing and is sliver tone. There is a printed adjustable plastic strap with a metal buckle, because it is not entirely made of plastic it will not just fall apart with regular use. The plastic is good on the strap for comfort on the wrist. It is battery operated, but unlike other gifts for the holidays, batteries are included.

The Tinkerbell and Cinderella watches also come without the cover and feature a picture on the front. The rest of the Disney watches on the Walmart Canada are still regular price of $12. Although the same watch featuring the Hulk that is also on sale for $5 has already sold out.

Two mothers who left reviews of both the Disney Princess and Hulk watches had this to say:

I bought this as a gift for my girl and was shocked to find how much increased her ability to learn about time. Being stylish she loved the pattern too. Full price utility for me.

Couldn’t find a Hulk watch anywhere and it was the only thing my 4 year old asked Santa for Christmas. Found this one online and it was shipped surprising quick. It arrived well on time for Christmas! Exactly what he wanted.

Check out Walmart for easy savings on a gift that is sure to be well-liked by the little ones in your life that love the Disney princesses. At a clearance price like this it won’t last long during the holiday season.

Xbox One & PS4 Games Only $20 In-Store @ Shoppers Drugmart (YMMV)

Posted by on November 16, 2014 at 9:01 AM

Xbox One & PS4 Games Only $20 In Store @ Shoppers Drugmart (YMMV)

In-store at Shoppers Drug Mart right now, a huge number of great games are on a clearance sale – $20 each. There are a wide variety of classic games, but you have to check your local Shoppers to see what they have in stock as these games are not in all stores. As the title says, YMMV – your mileage may vary.

Some of these games are still being sold at other Canadian retailers for upwards of $69.99. Here’s a selection of some of the titles that you may find for $20 so far:

For the PS4: Kill zone, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Infamous Second Son, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Watch Dogs, The Last of Us, Diablo 3 Ultimate, Mine Craft, LEGO Marvel, Call of Duty Black Ops.

Some of the Xbox One games for $20: Titanfall, Battlefield 4, Halo 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Dead Rising 3, Diablo 3 Ultimate, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Infamous Second Son.

There appear to be a number of previous generation console games on sale too. Examples for the DS/3DS: Zelda, Kirby, Mario, Donkey Kong.

Some titles have been clearly priced as a clearance item or even some marked as liquidation, so it may be apparent which games you can save on. However, some games have been marked at usual price on the shelves but it’s only when they are scanned by the cashier that the discounted price is seen. I would say to try a few of the above games out for scanning with the cashier as you never know which one might come up on sale. In light of this, I would also say to go to the store in person and not phone in, so you can have complete clarity on where all the deals are.

The items being largely marked for clearance, or not even marked on the label but discounted at the till would suggest that these deals may be available for a little while yet and new deals are being spotted all the time. However, remember that certain stores will only have a limited stock of certain titles, and that these fabulous deals could be cut off at any point, so best to be an early bird to catch these juicy worms. Check out your local Shoppers Drug Mart now, and see if your store has one of these classic gaming titles at a bargain price!

Tell us in the comments below which games you manage to score!

Seagate 5TB External Drive Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada!

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Seagate 5TB External Drive Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada!

If you need more space to back up your files or your computer memory is getting filled up, Dell has sale on a 5TB expansion drive. The Seagate Expansion Desktop 5TB drive is on sale for $164.99 and if you enter the Dell coupon code KCMT5$TC6QK8MT you can get an additional $25 off. This makes for a total savings of $90 from the original price of $229.99, it’s now down to only $139.99 with free shipping.

There are a few reasons to get an expansion or back-up drive for your computer. The most important one in my mind, is having secondary storage for the things that matter. I kept putting off getting an expansion or even a back-up drive until my computer packed up and then it was nearly too late. Fortunately someone got it all back for me, but it is always a good idea to back up your computer! In case you haven’t used one before, the expansion drive is a really easy one to use. You just plug it in and drag and drop your files to store them.

Expansion drives are also useful because if you have lot of photos, videos and music, you don’t clog up all of your computer’s internal drive. For me, it adds up quickly because I love taking photos.  Then my computer slows down and it really impacts the quality of the performance of the machine. With the expansion drive I don’t have to worry about keeping too much content on the computer itself.

When looking at a price comparison of other Canadian retailers the Seagate Expansion drive with 4TB is on sale at Best Buy, The Source and Future Shop are all selling for around $149.99 and up, so $10 more and with one terabyte less than the savings with this Dell offer. The other 5TB machines from some of these shops aren’t on sale and still retail in the range of upwards of $200.

Some people I know have two drives especially if it contains precious photo memories. Often they choose to store them in different physical locations in case one fails, is lost or stolen. If you have been shopping around for a 5TB expansion drive at this price it would be a good choice to pick up a first or second drive.

Ikea Sofas, Loveseats & Armchairs: BOGO 50% Off!

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Ikea Sofas, Loveseats & Armchairs: BOGO 50% Off!

There is no time like the holidays to get your home looking at its best, which is great because Ikea is having a sale! There’s a choice of two offers; buy any fabric sofa, love seat or armchair and get the second 50% off – or, don’t pay for six months with your Ikea credit card.

The Ikea Ektorp sofa is a classic style that is one for the ages. I know several people who have had products from the Ektorp range for years and have found them to be durable. If you have a bit more contemporary style the Karlstad and Kivik ranges have modern, clean straight lines. I’ve had my eye on Karlstad L-shaped sofa for a while now, it’s a nice solid sofa to cover with my many throw cushions! With this deal it isn’t just sofas, you can get two armchairs or a love seat and sofa, whatever combination you like.

Unfortunately the leather products aren’t part of the promo. That’s okay for me because the great part about Ikea soft furnishings is that you can take off the covers. If you have pets or kids and your sofa is a bit worse for wear, you can take the covers off and have them cleaned. Or if you fancy yourself as an interior decorator and need a makeover every so often, you can buy the covers in a different colour and give your room a new look.

Ikea is big box at its best which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but there are ways to take the generic items and make them your own style. There are a lot of Ikea hacks on Pinterest and changing something like the legs on furniture can make a big difference. When I was last in Ikea I noticed there are different choices for the legs on sofas and chairs now too. All the different ranges come with a selection of covers, with the biggest selection for covers in the Ektorp range.

There aren’t always sales or promos on soft furnishings at Ikea, they usually have a few sale events a year, aside from when a particular range is discontinued. If you want to spruce up your living room and you’re not sure which range to go for, now is a good time to have a browse and snap up a bargain.

The gift bundle includes:

You could buy the gift cards for yourself and use them and then have the bundle for your own use as well the beginning of next year.

The Scene points can really add up quickly. I usually buy only the food items that offer extra Scene points and I have had lots of free movies! Also the free ticket upgrade is definitely worth it.

Save $200 on Dyson DC23 Turbinehead Animal @ Hudson’s Bay Canada – now $400 & Free Shipping TODAY (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 13, 2014 at 7:11 AM

Save $200 on Dyson DC23 Turbinehead Animal @ Hudsons Bay Canada   now $400 & Free Shipping TODAY (EXPIRED)

Been dreaming of getting a Dyson? For today only at Hudson’s Bay, you can save $200 off a Dyson DC 23 Turbinehead Animal canister vacuum making it $399.95 plus you get free shipping.

Just the other day, my friend posted on Facebook questioning whether it was really better to get a Dyson Animal vacuum and I told her I thought it was. Other friends who had experiences with Dyson agreed that it worked for them. The regular price is $599 – if you have been needing or wanting this product, it is a third off which makes it a very good saving. These types of sales on Dyson products don’t seem come up very often, from what I have seen.

It was good value to me because it is a quality machine that works and keeps on working without losing function over time. No matter how many difficult messes that I’ve tasked it with it still picks up the same as when I first got it. You don’t have to worry about the added cost or inconvenience of buying filters over time, it comes with a built in HEPA filter. Also the filter is really easy to clean just run it under the tap and wait 24 hours until your next use and it is good to go. The dust trap is easy to dump into the bin without dust going everywhere. Just literally hold the canister over the trash and then press the button to open and the dust goes straight in.

Dyson products are also really good for allergy sufferers. They are certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma Society of Canada. What surprised me was it can make a difference for not only the people in your house, but also your pets too. We have a little dog who has allergies and getting rid of the allergens on a regular basis makes a huge difference to him.

If you have been waiting for your chance to own a bit of British ingenuity and quality at $399.95 today is a great opportunity.

Price Comparison

The DC23 Turbinehead Animal is sold online at a few other Canadian stores, it’s over $538 @ Amazon, $600 @ Vacuumscanada. It does seem to be a slightly older model than the current Dyson range, probably one of the reason’s that it’s on offer at The Bay today.

Kobo Coupon Code: $40 Off Kobo Aura

Kobo Coupon Code: $40 Off Kobo Aura

Good news for those who like to read! The Kobo Aura e-reader is $40 off directly from the Kobo website. You can enter the coupon code at the checkout to receive the discount and bring the price down to $99.99. Looking around the same Kobo Aura e-reader is still full price at Indigo, Best Buy and Future Shop for $139.99

Click here to check out this deal @ Kobo.com now

  • Coupon Code: JUSTFORYOU
  • Discount: $40 off
  • Expiry: 24th November 2014

If you already have a large phone or a tablet and are thinking why bother getting an e-reader if you can download books directly onto your device, I think there are a few outstanding benefits that made it a worthwhile purchase for me. I have personally found the e-readers to be much lighter to hold and the screen easier on the eyes. I have a tablet and the weight of the tablet is admittedly light, but as a regular reader over time I found that it was damaging my wrist to hold the tablet up while occasionally flicking as I read over long periods. With the e-reader I can hold it one handed with much less fatigue in my wrist.

Also I like to read before bed and the light from the tablet strained my eyes. Staring at screens all day like most of us do, it was a relief to have a more gentle glare-free light that the e-reader provided.

There is also a long battery life for the Kobo Aura and you can store up to 3,000 books, both of which are helpful if you are travelling or otherwise away from wifi access. It doesn’t apply to me but, for someone who needs to read with a large font, the Aura offers a wide variety fonts and sizes. I really like the optional reader stats as well, so that I can keep track of the books that I have read and keep challenging my personal best.

If you had heard of e-readers and were curious about jumping on the e-reading bandwagon, or if you are looking for a gift for the bookworm in your life now is a good time to snag one. At $99.99 it is a bargain price, much cheaper than a new tablet, and could be just the thing to encourage you or your loved ones in the goal of reading more.

TD Mobile Payment: $25 Credit For Using App

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 12:00 PM

TD Mobile Payment: $25 Credit For Using App

This is a good promo from Canadian banking. TD CanadaTrust has a time limited promotion for Android and Blackberry users. All you need to do is download the mobile app, link your credit card account to the app for the first time, make any purchase within the qualifying period and you will get a $25 credit to your account per smartphone in 2015. There isn’t a limit for the qualifying purchase. The $25 credit should appear on your February statement.

TD mobile app offers payment straight from your phone for small payments under $50, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to take out some cash or fiddling for your bank card, just place your phone on the sensor.

You can use it anywhere that has a contact-less payment system. A lot of fast food places and clothing stores have these in place. I worry sometimes about losing my wallet and someone using my cards, so I really like the idea that I don’t need to take my wallet for short trips anymore, just grab my keys and phone then off I go!

It also has some good security features to keep your bank and credit card details safe. I regularly give my phone to little ones to play some games. With this app you don’t have to worry if your child is playing games on your phone because when you open the app to use it it requests a secondary pass code that you set yourself before the app can be accessed, so even if the child knows the pass code to the phone itself they can’t get into the app. That pass code would also prove useful if your phone is lost or stolen and each transaction you make from the app is encrypted using a specialized smartphone SIM.

At the start of the gift buying season, this mobile app sounds like a good way to keep track of it all and pay for things easily. For trying it at least once you can take advantage of this promotion and if you spend $25 you will be getting it back. It is not only worth a try for the $25, which you could use for an extra gift or two, but also for the novelty of the bank adding money to your account for using it rather than taking it out for fees and services!

Steam: Get the Ankh Pack 75% Off This Week

Posted by on September 3, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Steam: Get the Ankh Pack 75% Off This WeekHead off to team right now and get your hands on Ankh 2: Heart of Osiris and Ankh 3: Battle of the Gods with a 75% discount on both titles.

Ankh is one of the oldest and longest running series of adventure games. Set in ancient Egypt, players must help Assil defeat the god Osiris in Ankh 2, who’s back to show the world of humans what he’s made of. There’s only one last thing he’s missing before his plans come to fruition: his heart. Combining interesting locales, colorful characters, excellent writing and a variety of brain-teasing puzzles, the Ankh games will have you scratching your head for hours and unable to stop playing. Ankh 3 takes places to new locales, introduces ever weirder characters and keeps you laughing all the while solving new and intriguing puzzles, each taking you one step closer to stopping the evil god Seth from winning the Battle of the Gods and plunging the world into an age of darkness.

I’m a big adventure fan, and I go through at least a dozen games like these every year, and the Ankh series is one of the best I’ve ever played. It’s no wonder the game has had this level of success. I came into the series with Ankh 2, because the first title released so long ago it’s impossible to find nowadays. But take it from me, not playing the first title won’t ruin the experience, not one bit. By the time you’re done with the second and move on to Ankh 3, you’ll be an expert on all things Ankh. You’ll know the major themes, the overall plot, and all the major players in this Egyptian adventure.

Head to Steam right now, where this pack is at a 75% discount, just for this week. This deal is fantastic, even if the games are considerably old. Ankh 2 is regularly priced at $4.99 but you can get it today for $1.24 as part of this offer; similarly, Ankh 3 goes at $9.99 every other day but during this week you can get it for just $2.49. If you already have one of them, get the other, but if you don’t, why get them separately when you can just buy them both for the combined price of $3.74.

You can’t miss this deal, so go now to Steam and get the Ankh Pack for just $3.74, that’s a whopping 75% discount just this week!

BestBuy.ca – Samsonite Fashionaire 3-Piece 4-Wheeled Luggage Set – Just $299

BestBuy.ca   Samsonite Fashionaire 3 Piece 4 Wheeled Luggage Set – Just $299

If you’re like me and you’re tired, annoyed and just wish to get rid of your old luggage set (or give them a Viking funeral as I’m tempted to do every time I look at them), why not take advantage of this fantastic offer, available until September 4, for Samsonite Fashionare Collection 3-Piece 4-Wheeled Luggage Set.

I took a trip to the UK a couple of months ago with my old luggage set, a wobbly, barely rolling piece of antique I’ve had for years. I was staying with a friend and she lives up a steep hill, and every second of the way up I had to fight the damn luggage because it just didn’t feel like rolling that day, and when it finally did, it wobbled so much I pretty much had to drag the damn thing up the hill. By the time we got to her place, I was tired and had murderous ideas towards the luggage.

I’m getting this set, the offer is too good to pass by, and you should do so too. Even if the beige floral pattern isn’t my thing, for this fantastic offer I’d take it in garish pink with neon highlights. The complete set sells for $799, a buck shy of $800, and now you can get it for $500 less than that. It’s massive on savings for a top-of-the-line set of luggage.

  • They’re durable, made from ABS/polycarbonate, which here you should read as “they can take a beating and keep going.”
  • The interior has straps built-in to keep the contents of your bag from moving around too much or bunch up.
  • The inside of the lid has an additional zipped compartment, if you need more space for your things.
  • The wheels spin, allowing you to maneuver through the airport and people, and not have to adjust your grip or even lift the luggage, as I had to do repeatedly during my last trip.
  • I’m a bit paranoid, I admit it, so I’m always concerned about the safety of my stuff while I travel, so I have padlocks, with keys or combinations, so the fact this Samsonite Fashionare set has built-in locks just sells it to me even more.

Supplies and time are extremely limited, so stop reading and just like me, get rid of your old luggage and replace it with this Samsonite Fashionare 3-Piece 4-Wheeled Luggage set for $299 only Bestbuy.ca and just until the 4th of September! Shipping will be free as this purchase is more than $25.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 25% Off Yurbuds Headphones Today Only!

Posted by on September 1, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 25% Off Yurbuds Headphones Today Only!

We all know Chapters for their huge catalogue of books, but this time around the bookstore giant brings us a different kind of offer: get a 25% discount on all Yurbuds headphones. The discount is for today only, so go now before time runs out!

The Yurbud earbuds sets have all been designed for use during physical activity, form running and jogging to any sport you can think off. They have many awesome features, including:

  • Water and sweat proof
  • Lock in place so they don’t fall off
  • Have specific models available to fit in smaller ears
  • Are comfortable to use for long periods of time
  • Have fantastic sound quality and don’t drown out ambient sounds, keeping you aware of your surroundings

They’re also more than just good buds, as every model comes with integrated and similarly waterproofed microphones, so you can take your calls during your jog or use voice commands on your music player or cellphone. The Yurbud product line is compatible with iPods, iPads, iPhones, Android and Blackberry devices. In theory, as long as your device is waterproof, you could use it with them even for swimming, something I’ve only been able to do a few times in my life.

I’m not one to go out jogging or running, but I do go to the gym frequently and if there’s one thing that annoys me to no end (aside from over-enthusiastic trainers), it’s having my earbuds fall off in the middle of my cardio. I lose my rhythm and end up way more tired because of it. More than once, I almost lost my balance trying to keep running and maintaining the rhythm and proper breathing while fidgeting with the buds. It’s because of this that I understand the value of sporting earbuds that stay in place.

So, how good is this offer on Chapters? Well, you can get the Yurbuds Ironman Inspire Pro set for just $45, which goes for $60 on both Amazon.ca and Bestbuy.ca. As I’m writing this, a few of the available models on Chapters are already out of stock and with this discount and the limited time, it’s not really surprising.

Shipping is free on orders over $25, so most of these earbuds should ship to you for free!

Newegg Canada: Cuisinart Silver Waffle Maker Only $40

Regularly $79.99, but for this week only, $39.99 with free shipping the Cuisinart WMR-CAC Silver Waffle Maker is a great addition to your kitchens small appliance lineup.

Do you like food that tastes good?  Do you like delicious food? Do you prefer easy to prepare meals? Do you on occasion eat one or more of the following meals, breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner?  Since I know you answered yes to everything so far, except of course brunch, which you only do on occasion, special occasion that is, let’s move on.  Do you own a waffle maker?  What, you don’t?!  They are too hard to clean you say, they are too expensive you say, they are only for breakfast you say and waffles are too hard to make you say.  Well I say au contraire, no no, waffles are easy to make, waffles are easy to clean up, and waffles are surprisingly versatile.

First, making your waffles you will need a batter this is not rocket science and you should have most if not all the ingredients already in your kitchen.  Here is a good basic recipe from this you can add your own personal touch.  What I like about this recipe is that you can save it covered in the fridge for up to a week.

Ok, you have made your batter, so simply plug in your waffle maker. With the Cuisinart WMR-CAC Silver Waffle Maker you have five browning options available to you from whether you prefer your waffles pale and doughy to toasty crispiness, Cuisinart recommends the middle setting number three.  Let the waffle maker heat up ,which is surprisingly quick, then ladle your batter in and close the lid, wait and voila yummy fresh warm goodness.

To clean your new Cuisinart waffle maker, unplug it and let it cool down.   The non-stick surface means you only need to brush away any leftover crumbs and with a paper towel sop up any grease left over.  Any harder to get remnants simply wet a cloth and gently wipe off.  No scrubbing no detergent needed, simple.

Now the fun part of having the ability to make waffles whenever you so desire is being able to use them in non-traditional ways.  The traditional way with whipped cream, chopped fruit, and chocolate sauce drizzled over is good but a little too sweet in my books to eat with any regularity.  Start slow with your waffle deviance and top them with peameal bacon and sunny side up eggs. Next, start adding things to the batter for a more savoury waffle your favourite herbs, chives and cheddar cheese.  Now, you are on the road to pulled pork waffle sandwiches, bbq chicken and maple syrup on your waffles and using your waffles as taco shells with hot sauce guacamole and the meat of your choice!  The combinations are endless, if you let yourself explore the dark side of waffles and life.
