Roku Streaming Stick (HDMI) Only $11 & Free Shipping @ & Free $25 Cineplex Store Credit! (QUICK!)

You might have to be quick on this one! is offering a great price on the Roku Streaming Stick (HDMI Version) – it’s now only $10.99 with free shipping!

When we last mentioned a deal on Roku here on Bargainmoose, it was $39.99 and we thought that was a great offer! So, for $10.99 and free shipping from Walmart, that’s an excellent deal. This might even be a price error, the price is so low.

And to sweeten the deal, anyone who buy s a new Roku player and activates it before the end of 2014 will also get a free $25 Cineplex store credit. That offer ALONE is worth it to spend $11 on the Roku player!! Get it quick!

What Is it?

What is this item, I hear you ask. Here’s what they say:

The Roku Streaming Stick makes it easy to enjoy the best selection of entertainment. Plug it in, and start streaming your favorites to your TV instantly.

You can even use it to send Netflix and Youtube videos from your phone to your television. You will need high-speed internet, a wireless router, and a TV with a free HDMI port to make use of it.

Price Comparison?

Elsewhere online in Canada, you can expect to pay a lot more for the Roku streaming stick. E.g. $50 @ Futureshop, $79 @ Amazon, $50 @ Bestbuy, $50 @ Staples.

(Save $80) Get The Stiga Hockey Table Game Only $50 & Free Shipping @ Giant Tiger Canada! HOT!!!

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 9:57 AM

(Save $80) Get The Stiga Hockey Table Game Only $50 & Free Shipping @ Giant Tiger Canada! HOT!!!

I was just hunting the interwebs for some Black Friday flyers to populate our excellent deals dashboard, and I found the Black Friday flyer live here on the Giant Tiger site. But while I was there, my eye landed on a very good price on a kid’s toy and after a bit of research, I realised that this was an absolutely excellent offer. The Stiga Hockey Table Game is usually priced at $129.99 but you can get it right now for a measly $50 with free shipping!

When you click the above link, you’ll see the toy for $60. Just apply the Giant Tiger coupon code 10YIPPEE for an extra $10 discount. As this item is over the $25 free shipping threshold, free shipping is automatic too.

There isn’t much information on the site about it, other than this:

  • Two NHL teams
  • Goal counters
  • 2 pucks included

I googled for reviews though, and there are 3 customer reviews on Toysrus. There are some positive comments, but one negative reviewer. For example:

Best table hockey ever made.

Compared to:

This is the biggest piece of garbage ever.

But to be honest, at such a low price point for this item, I wouldn’t expect it to be the most amazing toy in the world – but it’s definitely worth the money.

Price Comparison

Elsewhere, this Stiga Hockey Table Game is a LOT pricier. Let me show you the prices elsewhere online in Canada: $120 @ Mastermind, $119 @ Costco, $105 @ Sportsetc, $120 @ Toysrus, $180 @ Amazon. So as you can see, $50 from Giant Tiger is an absolute steal! I honestly have no idea if Giant Tiger have much stock left… so if you are interested in this item, get it now at this very low price.

Today only, there’s some great pricing happening on boxed collections of some entertaining HBO TV shoes, in the Black Friday deals week @ They are advertising up to 74% off these items. There are 14 shows in the sale, various TV shows which I am sure you’ve heard of in the past.

November 25 Black Friday DOTD: Half Price Acer Iconia Tablet $99.99 & Free Shipping & Other Lightning Deals

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 6:30 AM Black Friday DOTD: Half Price Acer Iconia Tablet $99.99 & Free Shipping & Other Lightning Deals

In the ongoing event that is Black Friday deals week @, they’ve had some really excellent one day deals and today is no exception. Right now, you can pick up a half price Acer Iconia 7.9” tablet for half price – it’s down from $199.99 to only $99.99 with free shipping from Amazon!

The full title of this item is the: Acer Iconia 7.9-Inch Tablet (A1-830-1838) with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Intel AtomTM processor Z2560, 1 GB, 16 GB Storage, 7.9-Inch display with IPS. It looks like a decent enough device, good for some basic home tasks.

Price Comparison Elsewhere

This is by far the best online price in Canada for this model of Acer Iconia tablet. Elsewhere, I’ve spotted the Acer A1-830-1838 for $140 @ FactoryDirect, $180 @ The Source, $160 @ TigerDirect, $213 @ CDW, $177 @ OfficeMax and $178 @ Walmart. Walmart and Amazon are in price wars at the moment, so it’s great to see such a price difference there, and a super price from Amazon.

While this particular tablet is probably not quite going to be up to the same quality of an iPad Air, you have different expectation when you are paying only $100 for a tablet. For this kind of thing, I think it would be great for young teenagers as a Christmas gift, great for playing little games and watching movies, etc. When my nephews were 9 and 11, they each got a tablet from Santa for Christmas, something similar to the Acer above. They’re definitely not as easy to use as an iPad, but they were a great little gift.

Some Other Lightning Deals Today Only

Remember, everything over $25 gets free shipping!

November 24 Seagate 2TB Portable External Hard Drive only $99.99 With Free Shipping & Promo Code (Black Friday Deals) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 24, 2014 at 9:01 AM Seagate 2TB Portable External Hard Drive only $99.99 With Free Shipping & Promo Code (Black Friday Deals) (EXPIRED)

In the ongoing Black Friday/November sales from, I’ve spotted a decent deal on this Seagate 2TB Portable External Hard Drive there. Originally priced at $159.99, the hard drive is down to only $109.99 with free shipping. And what’s even better is that there is a coupon code to get an extra $10 discount. Here are all the details:

Click here to get your Seagate hard drive @ now

  • Coupon Code: STBUP22
  • Discount: Extra $10 off
  • Expires: Unknown

This means that the final price of this Seagate hard drive is $99.99 with free shipping to your home. That technically equates to $0.05 per GB for storage, that’s a great price.

The Seagate STDR2000102 Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive comes in a blue finish, which may or may not be to your liking… but it looks like you can also select from the black, red or grey as well. I’ve just pictured the blue one above.

One of the points in the features list really stood out to me:

Features mobile backup using the Seagate Mobile Backup App

This means that you can schedule a local backup of the drive, which is a really good idea. When you’re at home, the drive could back up over your wi-fi connection, or you can also uses service slike Dropbox and Google Drive.

I’m a big advocate of backing up man, many times! On my desktop PC at home, I use the Carbonite service which automatically backs up all my files on a regular basis. However, I am also extra carfeful when it comes to my personal files, as there are business files as well as a lot of important personal family photos. I’ve got a secondary backup in the form of an external hard drive, similar to the one above. Every couple of months, I do an extra backup on to the external hard drive, and store it away somewhere safe. Maybe I’m too safe… but I have just heard of so many people relying on one service and ending up losing out on some of their important files.

Walmart Black Friday Flyers (Online & In-Store Offers)!

Posted by on November 24, 2014 at 6:07 AM

Walmart Black Friday Flyers (Online & In Store Offers)!

Over on, they’ve got their Black Friday flyers online now! They have two versions, an in-store one and an online flyer. These flyers run from the 28th November to the 1st December 2014, so you can have a look right now and see what you are going to be buying in their sales!

As we mainly focus on the online side of things here on Bargainmoose, I’m going to focus on the online flyer. Of course there are a few of you who will be braving the in-store sales, so you can use the flyers above to prepare your shopping plan.

Now, back to the online deals. These are due to commence at midnight on Friday the 28th November 2014. If you really want to make sure that you get the deals you want, you’re going to have to be online at midnight to try and crash the website!

The very top headliner deal on their flyer is this Samsung 55″ Smart UHD TV (55HU7000FXZC). It’s currently listed as “out of stock online” so I am thinking that they’re saving the stock until Friday, so they can sell some units at the reduced pricing. It’s currently listed at $1698 and on Friday, they will be selling this Samsung TV for $1398 with free shipping (I assume).

Other Televisions:

Other Items:

Remember, all of the above come with free shipping to most areas in Canada (excludes some remote locations).

I guess I am most excited about the LG 49” TV at a hidden price – I hope it’s a deep discount.

NOTE: when these deals go live on the Walmart site, be sure to price compare with other Canadian online retailers whose Black Friday sales prices may also be in effect.

He seems to love having all the tools and gadgets to be able to complete any job around the home. Not that he actually gets round to doing any of them…. He just likes to be confident that he has the tools to do so. He recently Facebooked me this image to prove his point.

Free Portable North Pole Santa Videos Now Live!

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Free Portable North Pole Santa Videos Now Live!

Each year for the last few years, we’ve mentioned the Santa videos from Portable North Pole. These are free personalised videos, where Santa and his elves send a cute video message to your little ones. And just this week, they’ve reactivated the free video messages for Christmas 2014!

On the above page, you just pop in a few details such as your child’s name, age and interests, and they’ll make you the free personalised Santa video. When you’ve made it, they instantly send you a link to your email so you have it saved to watch later… or to tell your little one that Santa has emailed mommy! That’s what I did last year, and I was then plagued every single day to go and read Santa’s email and watch the video, again and again. My daughter was 3 years old, and was fascinated at the time. I haven’t yet shown her this year’s video, I’ll be doing it very soon!

While the above service is totally free, there are some premium options upon which you can spend some money. A premium video is only $3.99, and the unlimited holiday pass is $9.99.

In the free option, there’s one storyline, but there are 3 to choose from in the premium video. I think this might make a little more sense for slightly older kids who could recognise that the video is almost the same as the one they received last year. It might be nice to vary it up a little bit. If you are intending on buying something from, then make sure to hit up our coupon page here. There’s a currently active coupon code which gives you a 10% discount on any digital purchases.

On another related and fun note, check out the NORAD Santa tracker. On that site, you can track Santa’s progress around the world on Christmas Eve… it’s good fun and maybe a good incentive to get the kids to bed! It doesn’t become active until the 1st of December though, so check back on it then.

Half Price Children’s Costumes @ Chapters Indigo Online

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Half Price Children’s Costumes @ Chapters Indigo Online

While browsing round the Chapters Indigo site to see if I could spot any bargains, I came across this deal on children’s costumes on the clearance pages. Select costumes have been reduced by up to 50% in a post-Halloween sale, and there are a number of great bargains to be had!

There aren’t a huge number of outfits available in the sale, but there are some popular characters in there which you may have heard of such as Captain America and Rocket Racoon.


Stock seems really limited, so if you are interested in any of these costumes, then buy them right now. It’s a perfect time to add one year to your kid’s age and get them a budget costume for next Halloween. It’s free shipping on any order of $25 or more.

Some items, such as this cute baby costume, the Pinky Winky, states that it is on “re-order online.” This should mean it will be coming back into stock. If you’re interested in those that are on re-order, bookmark the page and be sure to check back again.

I love the Captain America ones and even my 4 year old daughter would love those too! She goes to an after-school club and sometimes I walk in to find her dressed up in a muscly Iron Man or Captain America outfit, just like the above. She loves them! I’d much prefer to buy her that type of costume than a stereo-typical pink one each and every year. This Halloween, she and I both dressed up as Elphaba, the green-faced witch from Wicked. We looked great!

P.S. If you’re buying any other full-priced items online @ Chapters Indigo today (the 23rd November 2014), make sure to apply the coupon code HOLIDAYCHEER for a 25% discount on one item.

Columbia Shredinator Jacket Was $160 Now $80 & Free Shipping @! (Expired)

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Columbia Shredinator Jacket Was $160 Now $80 & Free Shipping @! (Expired)

Any Moosers on the hunt for a new jacket? There’s a great half-price deal on this men’s Columbia Shredinator Jacket from Sportchek Canada’s online store. Regularly priced at $179.99, you can grab it for only $79.99 just now.

Use Sportchek promotional code AFS4913 which gives you free shipping on any order of $49 or more. Usually, you only get free shipping on a $99 spend, so if you are buying this item on its own, make sure to use the coupon code to save $9.95 on your regular shipping costs.

A quick blurb to tell you about what kind of jacket you’re getting:

This waterproof, insulated jacket has all kinds of powder-friendly features to keep you toasty and dry on the slopes, or wherever your winter excursions take you.

It sounds like it’s a nice and warm, waterproof coat.

While the title of this item is “Columbia Shredinator Jacket Mens,” I’m of the opinion that it doesn’t have to be used by any particular gender. It’s quite a nice jacket and I think it could be worn by either men or women. The only issue I’d foresee with this would be chest sizing. As it’s a men’s jacket, the chest won’t exactly be custom-fitted to the larger-bodiced ladies… but for someone like me, that wouldn’t be a problem. I’ve only got a handful, so they’d fit in just fine. Columbia Shredinator Jacket Was $160 Now $80 & Free Shipping @! (Expired)

As for the colour choice, I’m only picturing the black and blue in the image above. In those colours, the jacket is available in a plethora of sizes so you should have a good choice there. However, the jacket also comes in red but it’s only available in size 2XL. If you want the red and that sizes fits, then fire away!

If you did buy the Columbia Shredinator Jacket and you weren’t enamoured with the colour or the fit, you can return or exchange it at your local Sportchek store, which is very handy.

The Source Canada: Canon Pixma Photo Printer Was $50 Now $20 & Free Shipping!

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 11:02 AM

The Source Canada: Canon Pixma Photo Printer Was $50 Now $20 & Free Shipping!

If you’re on the lookout for a budget printer, consider the great price on this Canon Pixma IP2700 Photo Printer which is currently on sale in The Source outlet sale. Originally priced at $49.99, it’s now only $19.99! That’s a steal. The Source Canada: Canon Pixma Photo Printer Was $50 Now $20 & Free Shipping!

How to get free shipping: make sure that once you add the above Canon printer to your shopping cart, you apply The Source coupon code TS499 which gets free shipping on ANY order (well, a $4.99 discount on any shipping fees). With this free shipping coupon code from The Source,the coupon code should work on anything, in case it’s not just this printer you want to purchase.  Here’s some basic info about this particular model:

  • 7 black pages or 4.8 colour pages per minute
  • 4800 x 1200 print resolution
  • Auto Photo Fix II
  • 12 months warranty

I googled for reviews of this Canon Pixma IP2700 and Amazon was the first result, of course. They have a number of consumer reviews on this particular model, but they’re not very high (mostly 2 to 4 stars). Obviously for $20, you’re not going to get the most amazing printer in the entire world, you DO pay for what you get.

If you’re thinking of using this printer a fair bit, then make sure you check for the price of inks in the future. It’s likely that they will cost more than the printer itself! That’s pretty common with these basic entry-level printers, so keep it in mind. But, if you just need a cheap printer for some really basic tasks, this Canon printer could be just the ticket.

November 23 $20 off $50 Coupon Code!

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 9:30 AM $20 off $50 Coupon Code!

Last week here, I wrote about a deal via and Facebook, in which you could claim a $20 off $50 coupon code in celebration of the Raptors win. And this week, they’ve launched the promo again – this time it is for the Ottawa Senators win! Again, you can get a unique $20 off $50 coupon code to spend on

When you enter your details on the above Facebook page, they will instantly show you the $20 off $50 coupon code to use on It states that it’s for new accounts only, but the coupon codes also appear to work on existing accounts – you shouldn’t have any issues applying it as you go through checkout.

Everything on’s site comes with free shipping, so there is potential for some nice deals here. The general consensus on the Bargainmoose team is that the regular prices of deals on are not amazing, but when you add the likes of a $20 coupon code and you’ve also got free shipping, then there is definitely some good deal potential to be had.

Some examples of offers on the site just now:

I’ve ordered from a few times, and I’m very happy with past orders. In fact, I have a few items sitting in my present cupboard which will be made us of in the upcoming Christmas festivities!

NerfN-Strike Strongarm 2-Pack Was $20 now $15 & Free Shipping @!

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 8:14 AM

NerfN Strike Strongarm 2 Pack Was $20 now $15 & Free Shipping @!

ALERT! ALERT! Potential Christmas present alert! Over in the clearance section at, they’ve got a deal on the 2 pack of these NerfN-Strike Strongarm blasters. They were originally priced at $19.92 but they’re now only $15 with free shipping to your home.

These would be an ideal Christmas pressie for some kids… I know that my 7 year old nephew would love these. I’m not going to buy them though as I know he already has some Nerf equipment so I wouldn’t want to double up on it. But for a 2 pack of blasters, this is an excellent price from Walmart. That’s only $7.50 per gun.

Now, as these are in the clearance section at Walmart, I don’t expect this deal to last very long. We’ve been posting a few items from their clearance sales and they tend to sell out fairly fast.

At other Canadian online stores, I’ve found the same gun at higher prices, albeit for only one Nerf gun. You can pick one up for $18 @ Toys R Us, $32.50 @, so paying only $15 for TWO Nerf guns from Walmart is really excellent. I did spot single ones for only $6.79 here at London Drugs, but you’d have to pay $13.58 plus $9.95 shipping to get two of them, working out quite a bit more expensive.

The Nerf guns have some good reviews on the Walmart site. Even though the age range says 9-12 years, the first reviewer says that her 2 and 4 year old love them! The reviews seem pretty sound though, such as:

Bought this on sale and play it all the time at home. Good speed to the shots

Nerf is such a popular brand… if you need a Christmas pressie for some young’uns, this could be just the ticket.

Oral-B Professional Rechargeable Power Toothbrush Was $190 now $100 @ (Black Friday Deals Week) & Possible Further $20 Back (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 6:52 AM

Oral B Professional Rechargeable Power Toothbrush Was $190 now $100 @ (Black Friday Deals Week) & Possible Further $20 Back (EXPIRED)

In the ongoing spend-fest that is the countdown to Black Friday @, they’ve had some really super deals and todays is no exception. For one day only, you can pick up the white Oral-B Professional Care Smart Series 5000 Rechargeable Power Toothbrush with Smart Guide at a great price. Originally costing $189.99, it’s now only $99.99 with free shipping.

In terms of the prices elsewhere, this very same toothbrush is currently on sale for $140 @ Londondrugs, and even more at other stores (such as $215 @, $140 @ and $175 @ Walmart).

UPDATE: there’s also a mail-in rebate for a potential further $20 cash back when you buy this item. See the form here. Just make sure you carefully read the terms and conditions on the rebate and fill in all your details accordingly.

Reviews on Amazon are extremely positive too. This Oral-B toothbrush gets 40 five star ratings and only a small handful of customers scoring it less than that. For example:

Good performance. Nice looking. Good quality brush.

This is my first oral B electric toothbrush. I decided to go with this after a friend purchased one and was amazed at the qualtiy difference.

Who would spend a hundred bucks on a toothbrush, I hear you ask? I WOULD! A few years back, I just used a regular toothbrush using the muscles from my own arms to clean my teeth. Now I’ve become far more advanced and I use a battery operated toothbrush, taking away all the effort, so I just need to sit and vegetate while my teeth go sparkly.

But joking aside, when I used an electric toothbrush for the first few times, I noticed a huge difference in how clean my teeth felt. You know where you run your tongue across your teeth after you’ve been to the hygienist and you can feel how clean they are? That’s how mine feel every time I electronically brush! I really recommend investing in an electric toothbrush like this one.
