American Eagle Tee / Tank Only $6.76 & Free Shipping! (US)

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 2:54 PM

American Eagle Tee / Tank Only $6.76 & Free Shipping! (US)

Over on American Eagle Outfitters, they’re having a great coupon code which is for today only for a 40% discount on almost everything on their site, plus free shipping (no minimum) to Canada! It sounded like a pretty good deal combo, so I took a look in their clearance section and I spotted a couple of pretty basic tees and tanks which work out to be excellent deals in this sale.

To get these deals, you need to add the coupon code FUNDAY40 when you are going through checkout.

First up, it’s the AEO Ombre Scoop Neck T-Shirt which was originally priced at $22.50. It’s priced at $11.27 just now, and drops to $6.76 when you apply the coupon code. You can see it in the image above, it’s on the top left. At first glance, I thought it was a basic grey t-shirt, but if you look closely at the image on the AE.com site, you’ll see that it’s actually got a shimmer silver finish on the bottom half, which is really cute. This tee is available in sizes small to double XL, so there’s a good choice in sizing.

Next up is the AEO Shimmer Trim Henley Tank which was also originally priced at $22.50. The same discount amount applies as in the paragraph above, bringing this American Eagle tank top down to only $6.76. You’ve got a colour choice this time – you can choose swan blue (pictured in the middle above) or delray grey (top right). I really like the swan blue, myself. Again, there’s a good choice in sizing… so even consider buying one in each colour.

Even though the girls shown in the AE images above make me feel old, these tees and tanks could be worn at any age… you don’t have to be in your teens or early twenties to pull it off.

Now, when you are going through checkout at AE.com, duties for Canadian orders aren’t initially shown, but they’re displayed on the last page of checkout. When I first spotted this deal, I thought the tees would go up in price A LOT by the last stage of checkout, but it’s actually not too bad. On a test order to Ontario, the final price of each item comes to around $9 including taxes and duties – which is very good considering that’s a top brand name with free shipping to your home.

$50 Off The Asus Black 7″ 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet: Now $130 @ FutureShop

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 1:30 PM

$50 Off The Asus Black 7 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet: Now $130 @ FutureShop

For those of you on the lookout for a tablet but cannot quite stretch to paying the higher price tags on Apple iPads, consider the great deal on this little Asus Black 7″ 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet which is currently on special offer at Futureshop Canada. They’ve knocked $50 off the original price of $179.99, bringing it down to only $129.99 with free shipping!

There are other colour options available in this Asus tablet, but only the black is available to order online at this price. If you want another colour, you could check out the stock at the Future Shop location nearest to you. Here’s a quite note on the specification of this tablet deal:

  • 7″ HD screen with 1280 x 800px  resolution
  • 16GB of built-in memory
  • 2MP HD front camera & 5 MP rear
  • Android 4.4
  • Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth

While 16GB isn’t huge for a tablet in terms of memory these days, this Asus tablet is excellent because it’s expandable up to 64GB by using a new micro SD card. If you need the extra on-board storage space, you’ve got that option down the line.

Also, the fact that this Asus tablet has got both front and rear cameras is a bonus – many of the lower price-point tablets only have one. This means that you can video chat with ease, changing the view when needed.

I did an online price comparison to see how good this deal really was. The Asus 7″ 16GB MeMO Pad Tablet With Wi-Fi comes in quite higher at most other stores – $160 @ Memoryexpress, $180 @ Best Buy, $198 @ Newegg, $160 @ The Source, $160 @ NCIX. So you can see it’s a truly sweet deal from Future Shop – $30 cheaper than the next best price from the competition.

Reviews seem mostly positive too, with many users commenting that it’s great for streaming video and various media. It sounds like it also has a great screen, with clear and sharp pictures. Overall, I think it’s a great buy for this price.

  • Coupon Code: TRUANNINFINITY
  • Discount: BOGO 50% off Disney Infinity figurines

The coupon code only applies to the single figurines and not to the starter packs which are more expensive. Some examples of the items in this range:

As you can see from the above examples, there’s a wide range of characters to choose from, coming from a wide range of universes such as The Incredibles, Pirates of the Caribbean, Marvel, Toy Story and more. Rocket Racoon is cute!

I noticed that the Frozen characters are sold out – that’s to be expected, it’s such a popular movie!

If you’re planning ahead for Christmas and want to pick up some of these characters for your kids, now is a great time to buy when they are on this special offer at Toys R Us.

Most of the individual figurines are priced at $13.99 each from Toys R Us. This means that buying two and using the above coupon code brings your cart to a total of $20.99.

Brother HL2280DW Multi-Function Laser Printer $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Brother HL2280DW Multi Function Laser Printer $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Here’s a little dealio on the Brother HL2280DW Multi-Function Mono Laser Wireless Ethernet Printer from NCIX Canada. This laser printer was originally priced at $203.98, but you can pick it up for only $99.99 with free shipping, right now! That’s a great price for a handy laser printer.

The Brother HL2280DW printer is a mono coloured printer, meaning it will only give you black ink. Colour lasers are notoriously a LOT more expensive than this. If you’re needing a basic mono printer for your home office perhaps, then this is definitely a deal to consider. I’ve got a mono multi-function laser printer sitting right at my feet at this moment. I don’t use it an awful lot, but it is handy to have here when we need to print off boarding passes, the latest Groupon deal, or something like that. I’ve had my printer for a number of years and I’ve only ever had to replace the toner cartridge once.

As for a price comparison on this Brother HL2280DW multi-function printer, I’ve looked around the online competition in Canada and found it for sale at quite a number of other outlets. The next best price I can see that this printer is available is $146.66 @ Costco.ca, that’s with free shipping too. So you can see that the NCIX price is beating that by quite a bit, hence I am writing this post about it. Brother HL2280DW Multi Function Laser Printer $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

It’s great to see free ground shipping on items like this from NCIX. At some other sites, you can sometimes pay $20 to $40 just on shipping fees for a bulky item such as this. The free shipping from NCIX is what really makes this deal super-sweet, in my humble opinion.

I googled for HL2280DW reviews to see how this Brother printer performed for users. Of the 33 customer reviews on Amazon, 20 of those are rated with the full 5 stars, and the final score averages out at 4.3/5. That’s a very healthy review score. One positive example:

If you want a printer that just prints black and white and has a scanner this is a very good printer, I have had this for almost a month now and works very well!

Apparently, the wireless functionality of the printer is extremely useful too. That’s one thing I am missing on mine – I bought my printer before wireless functionality was commonplace. I really wish I had it! I’ll definitely be looking for the wireless features when I next upgrade my home office printer.

66% Off The Stanley Parable @ Steam: Only $5.77 (PC Game)

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 11:00 AM

66% Off The Stanley Parable @ Steam: Only $5.77 (PC Game)

I spotted a deal on Steam for a little indie game called The Stanley Parable. It’s currently down to only $5.77CA, a 66% discount on the regular price!

The description of the game is quite intriguing, and captured my imagination:

…is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.

From what I saw, it looked like the “locked room” or “hidden object” type games which I really enjoy to play in my spare time. I instantly bought The Stanley Parable… so thought I should play it for 15 minutes before I started to write this blog post. When I started playing, it almost feels more like one of those “choose your own adventure” type games, as I had to make choices as to which door to go through, and things like that.

Throughout the course of the game, there is a very funny narrating voice, with comments such as:

Stanley stepped into the broom closet, but there was nothing here, so he turned around and got back on track.

I got to the “end” of one story line of the game, and it just restarted back at the start, enabling me to play again and make different choices.

I had a smile on my face the whole time I was playing this little game, it’s got a very good sense of dry and witty humour. I’ve only played it for half an hour so far, but I will be playing it more this evening.

When googling for reviews, The Stanley Parable scores 88% on Metacritic, and 9/10 from over 13k reviews on Steam itself. Some very good scores! IGN states that it is:

…witty, unusual and quietly discomfiting, The Stanley Parable is a successful experiment in interactive narrative.

For less than $6, this is a bargain indie game for a few hours of fun.

$40 off Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch: Now $69.99 & Free Shipping @ Costco.ca

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 10:00 AM

$40 off Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch: Now $69.99 & Free Shipping @ Costco.ca

If you or your partner are on the lookout for a new watch, consider this pretty hot deal on the Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch on special offer at Costco Canada just now. Originally priced at $109.99, they’ve knocked $40 off this price bringing it down to only $69.99. Plus, you will get free shipping and handling too!

The Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch EFR-529-7A is a grey and green finish as pictured above, so it may not be to everyone’s taste. Personally, I quite like the colour. Regardless of the fact that this is a man’s watch, I’d wear this myself.

The Casio watch has only got 5 reviews on the Costco site, but it scores a total rating of 4.5/5 on those, with comments such as:

Good weight, simple – no unneeded bells and whistles, comfortable band … looks and feels great, fantastic price.

One commenter was irked that the watch didn’t come with any instructions. I don’t think this is a big deal… watches are extremely to operate. And if all else fails, just google for help.

To price compare: while this exact watch isn’t sold at many other retialers, I did spot it for $107 @ PC-Canada, $124 @ FrontierPC and $115 @ DirectDial. The Costco price comes in well below the competition.

Believe it or not, I started my Christmas shopping last week! I know it’s only October, but when you spot great bargains on various items, it’s good to buy them and start putting them away for Christmas. Out of the list of around 14 family members I have to buy for, I’ve already got pressies for four of them. I’m being very well-organised this year! I bring this up because this Casio watch is just the kind of deal which could be good to buy as a Christmas pressie. Getting it now, putting it away until December… it’s a great idea to save money these holidays.

Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone Only $29.99 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop / BestBuy Canada (Half Price)

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 9:42 AM

Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone Only $29.99 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop / BestBuy Canada (Half Price)

If anyone out there is on the hunt for a small portable microphone to use with your computer or laptop, check out the deal on this Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone which is on offer from both Best Buy Canada and Futureshop. Originally priced at $59.99, you can grab it right now for half price, it’s down to only $29.99 with free shipping too!

The Blue Microphones Tiki is a portable USB microphone… which might be hard to tell from the image above. It looks more like some sort of fancy whistle! Anyway, the Tiki appears to be quite a smart advice, mimicking the intelligence of human hearing. One point in the description of this microphone particularly appealed to me:

…it can bring your voice to the forefront and minimizes competing background noise like typing.

That’s an excellent idea. When I am on Skype calls for work, I frequently hear people typing quite loudly on the other end. I wonder how loud my own typing must be.

There are only a few reviews on site, but they are positive. For example, B from Edmonton states:

AMAZING LITTLE THING!

Short and sweet, eh?

Well, if you just want a basic and budget-friendly microphone for some basic chatting or sound recording, then this could be ideal.

Price Comparison

The Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone is on sale at many Canadian online retailers, so it’s easy to run a price comparison on this item. In order from lowest to highest: $60 @ Londondugs, Memoryexpress, Apple Store, $66 @ ComputerValley, PC-Canada, $70 @ Amazon, $72 @ NCIX.

You can clearly see that it’s a very hot price from the sister sites of Futureshop and Best Buy.

Red Tufted Futon Sofa Bed Only $80 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 7:10 AM

Red Tufted Futon Sofa Bed Only $80 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (EXPIRED)

Check out this deal on the red Tufted Futon Sofa Bed online at Walmart Canada just now. You can pick up this futon for a mere $80 with free shipping to your home!

This is a really low price point for such an item. Walmart state that this is a 2 in 1 sofa bed, and that it is “perfect for small living spaces and sleepovers.” I’d agree!

When I found this on the Walmart site, I also noticed the same model in black and black leather, but they were priced at $149 and $179 respectively. So, I’m thinking it’s a very good price on the red model.

There are only a couple of reviews of this futon on the Walmart site, but here’s one that sums up the general consensus:

Very happy with purchase. It is comfortable, looks good and was affordable!!!

I think this type of thing would be ideal in a den, or even as a sofa in a kid’s room. It could then be rolled out any time you need some extra sleeping space for friends or family members. Even if you’re not overly enamoured with the red colour, that’s nothing that a funky sheet or bright throw wouldn’t cover up. Now that I write this, I’m talking myself into getting one of these for my kid’s playroom! We’ve got enough space for it and it would be good as a sofa for everyday use. We don’t have a spare room for guests just now… we use an inflatable mattress if someone needs to stay… but the futon could be a better idea.

At this price, I would imagine that the Tufted Futon Sofa Bed isn’t incredibly sturdy or durable, but I suppose you could be surprised. If you order one, please let us know what you think of it in the comments below!

Newegg Coupon Code: 10% Discount!

Posted by on October 17, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Newegg Coupon Code: 10% Discount!

Though Avigayil mentioned this coupon code in her Newegg post yesterday when she was writing about the hot deal on the  (now expired) external battery, I think this 10% Newegg coupon code should be highlighted in a post of its own. It’s VERY rare to see a coupon code which works on almost everything site-wide at Newegg, for an extra discount!

Click here to use the Newegg coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: NEWEGG5TH
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expires: 20th October 2014

The above coupon code should work on almost everything on site, but you can only claim a maximum discount of $25 on your order. They’ve set that limit on the coupon code. It’s to celebrate the Newegg anniversary sale – their 5th anniversary.

Newegg has a whole section here dedicated to some discount deals on the refurbished electronics. However, I tested the 10% coupon code out on a few of the items and it didn’t seem to work. The coupon code may not apply to refurbs but I couldn’t find any specific terms and conditions to confirm this detail.

If the coupon code doesn’t apply to something, you will see this message in your cart:

ERROR There is an issue with promo code NEWEGG5TH. Please check promo code again or contact customer service.

It doesn’t mean something is wrong with your order or with the promo code, it just means the items isn’t eligible for a discount.

Back in September, Margarita mentioned the deal on Newegg Premier – this is their free shipping service. If you signup to Newegg Premier, you can get a free 30 day trial, in which everything will be shipped to your for free. If you choose to continue with the plan, it costs $59.99 per year and almost everything on site will be shipped to you for free. If you’re a regular buyer from Newegg.ca, this is definitely worth considering. And even if you’re not that regular of a buyer, you could take the 30 day trial when you’re placing your order to save on those shipping fees. They can be quite high on some items, so free shipping is a super bonus.

Tiny Prints Coupon Code: $20 Discount! (US) (EXPIRED)

Tiny Prints Coupon Code: $20 Discount! (US) (EXPIRED)

We’re on the mailing list for Shutterfly.com, the US based photo gifts site which we’ve mentioned on here a number of times as they have great offers and ship to Canada. They started sending us emails about one of their sister sites Tinyprints.com, which specialises in cards, invitations, announcements, those kind of things. I went on the hunt for coupons to see what they were like, and I found a particularly good one – but it ends today. You can save $20 on any order, there’s no minimum spend!

Click here to use the Tiny Prints coupon code now

  • Coupon Code: TPIPAD20OFF (EXPIRED)
  • Discount: $20 off
  • Expires: 17th October 2014

The above coupon code is supposed to be for orders placed through their iPad app, but I’ve just tested the code on the desktop site and it’s working well. If you really want to, place the order through the app, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

Now, for shipping to Canada – it’s not cheap. On my test order, it was $15. But this technically means you can place an order of anything you want, and the Canadian shipping fee is more than covered by the $20 discount coupon code. Remember, any order over $20 may be subject to additional customs and fees at your door, so you might want to keep your order small. It would be a great opportunity if you want to order some items, to see what the quality is like.

This year, I was considering making some holiday photo cards. I’ve never done that before, I’ve just used standard greetings cards in the past. There are some nice templates on there to choose from. These are even Halloween cards! Who sends Halloween cards?!

While we mainly like to feature Canadian companies here on Bargainmoose, we’ll be the first to admit that there’s a heck of a lot more choice when it comes to ordering items from the US. If you’re planning a big party or a wedding, then it could be worth a browse on Tiny Prints as they have a great selection. There are also a load more valid coupons here on our coupon page for various items on the Tiny Prints site, but I think the $20 code with no minimum spend, is one of the best value. You cannot stack coupons, so just use the one which is best for your order.

Moo.com: Free Canadian Shipping, No Minimum (US)

Posted by on October 15, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Moo.com: Free Canadian Shipping, No Minimum (US)

Business cards are quite an important thing. When you meet someone new, they instantly say a little bit about you and your image. That’s why when I order business cards, I ALWAYS order them from Moo.com who offer some fantastic options. And just now, they’re offering totally free shipping to Canada, with no minimum spend required whatsoever – by using the link below.

If you were interested in placing an order, now would be the perfect time to do so, without having to worry about international shipping and handling fees. When I went through checkout for a test order, it stated:

Printed and shipped in 4 business days, sent by standard delivery

So, even though your items will ship to Canada from the US, that’s still pretty fast. It may take a little longer to get to you, but it’s worth the wait.

When I last placed an order, I got some rounded-edge glossy business cards, with the Bargainmoose logo on the front and my information on the back. I’ve pictured them in the photograph above – aren’t they lovely? Well, the photo doesn’t really do it any justice… but when I am at conferences and give these business cards to people that I meet, I almost always get a compliment on the quality of the business cards. Moo.com is my retailer of choice when it comes to business cards.

But did you know that Moo.com sell more than just business cards? They also sell minicards, flyers, postcards and stickers. I even bought my business card holder from Moo.com, this leather and brushed steel model. It’s also really stylish.

Taxes & Customs Etc

When going through checkout, you are only charged the cost of the items themselves. And shipping is free, as per the post above. There’s a small chance you may get hit at your door by extra customs, duties and taxes, as these are not taken at checkout. So, if you are placing an order, definitely consider keeping it small, or making multiple small orders, to try and prevent paying any extra fees.

My last Moo.com order was over $150 and I ended up paying an extra $23 at the door. I did not mind at all, I knew the quality of the products from previous orders and I really wanted them.

If you’re interested in more international stores from which you can place an order and pay no shipping costs at all, check out our page here!

Totally Free International Shipping!

Posted by on October 8, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Totally Free International Shipping!

While tidying up our free shipping page the other day, I came across a few international stores which offered free shipping to Canada, though they themselves were not Canadian stores. I decided to add a brand new spanking page, to showcase some of the more interesting ones. Before I knew it, I’d been researching it for two days and ended up with a ton of new stores for you guys to see – all covered on the page of international stores with free worldwide shipping!

As of right now, there are 60+ stores on there… so the list is not exhaustive. I’ll add to the list as I discover new stores. Or if you know of any more, please drop me a line – hit the contact us link at the bottom of this page.

Notes On Customs

Remember, if you’re buying from outside Canada, you need to do your own research on the site in question to see how they deal with customs and duties, and if you will be paying any unexpected fees. When you visit a new store, hit up their shipping help page and read about customs – whether they pay all the fees for you, whether they charge you some fees at checkout, or whether they don’t do anything and you might have potential fees at your door. Whichever option it is, the store will usually explain this on their shipping page, and that can affect your purchasing decision.

Store Examples

While I was making the above page, I found some really interesting stores which I’ve just discovered and had never seen before. Here are a select few:

Vanilla Underground – When I clicked through to this store and was hit in the face by images from Guardians of the Galaxy, Dr Who and True Blood, I was instantly in love! This store has a ton of excellent merchandise from top movie and TV shows, bands, Disney, and loads more. Everything gets free shipping to Canada!

Glencara – This is a jewellery site specialising in Irish pieces, such as Claddagh and Celtic rings. If you’re into that kind of thing, this is a good place to check out. With free worldwide shipping, it could make for a really unique gift or present for a loved one.

Polabora – This site makes retro polaroid style prints! I love the style and the layout of this site, and it’s a great idea. With free worldwide shipping on everything too, it makes an even greater incentive to buy.

A Few More

But there are a load more stores on the free international shipping page for you to check out! Here’s a small selection of more stores in there:

Totally Free International Shipping!
UGG Australia
Totally Free International Shipping!
Shopbop
Totally Free International Shipping!
Book Depository
Totally Free International Shipping!
Modekungen
Totally Free International Shipping!

Canadian Subscription Box Deals & Gift Ideas!

Posted by on October 6, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Canadian Subscription Box Deals & Gift Ideas!

It’s my mom’s birthday soon and I have been trying to think of a gift idea. She’s coming 69 and she doesn’t really “need” anything and it can be very difficult to think of a gift for her that she doesn’t already have. I was thinking about it just now and I came up with the idea of a subscription box for a couple of months. There are quite a few services in Canada which offer gift boxes… some not necessarily great for my mom, but these could be a good idea if you’re buying a gift for a friend or relative.

Here are some of the services that you can choose from and a quick word about each, as well as any special offers you might want to take advantage of:

Canadian Subscription Box Deals & Gift Ideas!

Cosmetics Subscriptions

This seems to be a very popular niche for subscription boxes. Here are a few beauty and cosmetics subscription boxes to note:

Luxe Box – This is a Canadian subscription box in which you get 7 or 8 trial sized beauty products, curated to match your beauty profile. The price of the Luxe Box is $26 for one box and that comes with free shipping. Prices drop if you subscribe for longer. I believe the Luxe Box operates quarterly rather than monthly.  There’s a gift option at checkout if you want to send a box as a pressie. I don’t know of any active coupon codes for these at the moment.

Topbox – This Canadian beauty box subscription will give you four hand-picked samples each month, for only $12 with free shipping – a very low price point. There is a waiting list for subscriptions though, it could take a few months before you get your first box, so it might not be ideal as a present unless you are planning this one well ahead in time.

Canadian Subscription Box Deals & Gift Ideas!

Pet Subscriptions

There are a few that I know of in this field:

Bowzerbox.ca – these are a relatively new Canadian service, offering monthly dog goodies in a box. For any sized dog, it’s $29 for one month but the monthly costs fall if you subscribe for longer. There is also a shipping fee of $4.50 a month. They have a “gift” option at checkout so it makes it easy to gift a Bowzerbox. You can use Bowzer Box coupon code LP10 to get $10 off your first box.

Barkbox.com – while these are US based, they’re still good to ship to Canada. Prices of these pet subscription boxes start at $29 for the first month, plus $5 shipping to Canada. You can use the coupon code fbruv10 to get $10 off. There’s also a gift option available, so good to use for that purpose.

Canadian Subscription Box Deals & Gift Ideas!

Food & Drink Subscriptions

Food boxes are yummy!! There is quite a wide variety of foods you can get in this type of subscription – here are a few interesting options.

Treatsbox – This is a Canadian service which ships you a monthly box of candies and snacks, from popular brands such as  Hershey’s, Cadbury, Wonka and more. It’s only $30 with free shipping, and they’ve got the gift option at the checkout. The Treats Boxes look delicious and would make a super gift.

Munch Better – This is a Canadian snack subscription box which costs $19 per month, plus shipping fees. This service focusses on healthy snacks with high quality ingredients. Sadly, there are no coupons for these just now!

Parachute Coffee – This type of box makes a great gift for the coffee aficionado. Parachute offers a monthly box of hand-picked coffee from the best local coffee roasters for only $25 with free shipping. My partner would love to try this one.

Tea Sparrow – We’ve had coffee, what about tea? Tea Lovers may like to try out Tea Sparrow which offers a subscription box filled with 4 different loose leaf teas. It’s only $20 with free shipping and for that, you’ll get about 35 cups of tea. I watched the video on their site and it looks delicious! Follow the instructions on this post and you can get your first box for only $8.

Well Moosers, these are just a few different ideas of subscription gifts you could give as a gift. Have you any more thoughts? Have you gifted a subscription box, and if so, which one? Let us know in the comments below!

Posted by on October 4, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Are you ready for Halloween 2014? Have you got your Halloween costumes ready? If the answer is NO, then it could be time to start preparing your Halloween outfits now, in order to get the best deals in advance. (Bumping this post for 2014)

You might think that it’s a little bit early to be writing about Halloween costumes. But, if you are like me, you will want to make sure that you are well-prepared for you and your family. If you’re ordering a new Halloween costume online, then you need to give enough time for shipping or potential returns. Ordering Halloween costumes online will often mean you can search around and find the best prices for what you want, so it will save you some money in the long term.

Here are a few Canadian Halloween costume stores and some Halloween coupon codes that you might want to take advantage of:

Walmart Canada

Halloween Costume Coupons!

While it’s not a dedicated costume store, you can see that there are some costumes to buy online from Walmart Canada, with accessories starting at only $1.97, and all have free shipping. I’ve pictured a few in the image above. We don’t have any coupons for these guys though, they never do coupon codes!

 

Buying from the US

There is a lot more choice from US sites if you’re making an order there. Just make sure to order your Halloween costume with plenty of time to spare for shipping up to the Great White North.

Remember to watch out for customs and duties policies – some stores will charge these at checkout, but some won’t (and you may be liable to pay a fee to receive the parcel). We’ll research what we can from the stores and tell you exactly what I can find in the paragraphs below.

Here is a selection of US Halloween costume stores and a few offers you might want to take advantage of.

 

Buy Costumes

Halloween Costume Coupons!

One of the largest US sites to buy costumes online is… Buycostumes.com! They have a super selection at decent prices. Shipping to Canada is inclusive of duties and customs, you will see the total fee as you go through checkout. For example, on a test order of $75, shipping was $12 and duties were an extra $12. It can work out quite expensive, but just make sure you have a good search for the latest coupon codes before you buy. Here’s one we found today:

  • Coupon Code: Terror20

Anytime Costumes

Another US based site, Anytime Costumes charges customs and duties at checkout so you don’t have to pay these later. Canadian shipping prices start at $15.99 (a bit high). But they do offer over 4,000 costumes, a really huge selection.

Spirit Halloween

Halloween Costume Coupons!

Spirit Halloween is a store that has physical locations in Canada, but their online store ships from the US. Canadian shipping charges seem to start at $13.99, but you may be subject to extra duties to receive your items.  There are quite a few active coupons just now, here are all the Spirit Halloween coupon codes that we know of. For example:

  • Coupon Code: OPEN14
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expires: 12th October 2014

Old favourite: eBay Canada

Halloween Costume Coupons!

I am sure it is common knowledge that people will sell their old Halloween costumes on eBay Canada. It’s a particularly good source of bargains, especially for the kids. In many cases, the outfit will only have been worn a handful of times before the child has grown too big to make use of it.

Additionally, you can sometimes find “specialist” items there that might be a bit difficult to find elsewhere.

Alternatives: Regular Clothing Stores

As well as all the specialist Halloween stores mentioned above, you can always find Halloween costumes in some regular stores. For kids outfits for example, Halloween stock appears on the shelves in the likes of Old Navy and The Childrens Place. You’ll probably find more of these deals closer to the time. However, I find that these can be the most expensive to purchase before Halloween. There are always price drops after Halloween – if you can be prepared enough to purchase next year’s costumes then.

In the comments below, please let me know if you know of any more specialist costume stores that I can add to the list!

La Senza Coupon Code: Get 20% to 40% Discount, TODAY Only & Stacks With Multi-Buys & Other Promos! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 6:19 AM

La Senza Coupon Code: Get 20% to 40% Discount, TODAY Only & Stacks With Multi Buys & Other Promos! (EXPIRED)

La Senza is my favourite lingerie store. I think they’ve got great quality merchandise and great prices to boot. I’ve spotted a new La Senza coupon code which is worth sharing – the more you spend, the more of a discount you will receive.

Click here to use the La Senza coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: sexy3 (expired)
  • Discount: 20% off $50, 30% off $75, 40% off $100
  • Expires: 27th September 2014

We don’t see La Senza promo codes very often. So when we do, it’s worth a mention because their coupon codes are usually stackable on top of all the other promotions on their website. And that’s exactly the case with today’s coupon code. Here’s an example of what I mean – these sexy panties are on a buy 2 get 1 free offer, and the coupon code applies on top of the promotion, giving a double discount. Here’s a screenshot of the shopping cart to show you what I mean:

La Senza Coupon Code: Get 20% to 40% Discount, TODAY Only & Stacks With Multi Buys & Other Promos! (EXPIRED)

The original cart total was $75, the panty offer gives $25 off, the coupon gives a further $15 off, bringing it down to only $35 in the end. What’s ever better is that the coupon code applies on the PRE-promotional price, making the discount a little bit higher.

There are many more offers on the La Senza site with which you can attempt to stack this coupon code, such as:

Depending on how much you spend, that’ll dictate how much discount you get with the coupon above. I’ll admit that I would find it very easy to blow $100 on La Senza right now. Almost all my panties are from there, and I haven’t bought any new ones in about a year… I think it’s time for a treat.

If I was to take advantage of the 7 for $28 offer… and actually  buy  28 pairs of panties, this would maximise the discount. I could technically buy 28 pairs of panties for $67.20 with the 40% coupon code, that’s $2.40 each. Now, maybe it’s a bit mad to buy 28 pairs of panties all in one go, but you could consider maybe placing an order with a friend or family member who also likes La Senza merchandise in order to get the great quality panties for that incredibly low price.

As for Canadian shipping, it’s a flat rate of $9, there don’t appear to be any free shipping promotions at the moment.
