Minifigure Mold (LEGO Style) only $3.82 & Free Shipping @!

Posted by on July 3, 2015 at 1:00 PM

A couple of weeks ago, we shared the above video on our Facebook page. It’s a tutorial which shows you how to make your own stackable, snackable gummy candy in the shape of LEGO bricks and LEGO minifigures! We got a tremendous response to the video, with many people asking where they could buy the molds. Amazon is a great place to look for things like this, and I was searching for some this morning. I spotted a great price on a mold for the LEGO minifigures – it’s only $3.82 and that’s with free shipping to your home!

Please note that in my title I am stating “LEGO style” as these molds are probably not a genuine branded LEGO product. You’d probably pay three times this price in the LEGO store for a mold like this (example). The same one from Amazon themselves is $20 here! But the mold from the seller on Amazon looks pretty much identical to the one on the LEGO store, at a fraction of the price. I think that if you’re just going to give the gummies a try, you don’t want to spend a fortune and something like this is ideal to get you started.

The mold makes you eight minifigures, consisting of whatever material you decide to use. For example, as well as gummies, you could make chocolates, ice-cubes, anything!

When I put the above video on Facebook, many people were commenting that it was a BAD idea – getting your kids confused and possibly encouraging them to eat the real LEGOs. I don’t think this applies… my daughter is five years old and she absolutely loves her LEGO. She can easily see the difference between a piece of LEGO and a candy. Obviously, if you plan on doing this with younger children, there could be a question of confusion there… but LEGO does have certain age recommendations on it, and I’d make sure that you stick to those and always supervise the kids when playing too!

Mega Bloks My Hello Kitty House Was $110 now $80 & Free Collection @ Toys R Us Canada!

Posted by on July 3, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Mega Bloks My Hello Kitty House Was $110 now $80 & Free Collection @ Toys R Us Canada!

I was looking for deals on a kid’s playhouse, searching the interwebs for the best deals and prices. I came across this deal on the My Hello Kitty House from Toys R Us Canada. Combining the sale prices and by using a coupon code, you can bring the cost of this playhouse down to only $79.98… plus you should be able to collect at your local store for free, omitting any nasty shipping fees.

You must order online and use the Toys R Us coupon code CineplexFeb to get the My Hello Kitty playhouse for $79.98. That ends up being 27% off its original price. It’s only available for click and collect, there’s no ship to home option available on this toy house.

The My Hello Kitty House is made by Mega Bloks, a very well-known toy manufacturer. And from what I can tell, you don’t just have to style the playhouse in the configuration pictured above. As this playhouse is made from giant mega-bloks, you can actually make it in other styles, such as a sweet shop, lemonade stand, and more. What a great idea!

Price Comparison!

While I cannot find this exact house at any other online stores in Canada, I can do a general price comparison for similar plastic toy houses. The cheapest non-inflatable and non-cardboard playhouse that I can see on is this Tot’s Play Villa Playhouse which is $130 there. The cheapest similar playhouse on Toys R Us (that is available) is this Little Tikes Cape Cottage Playhouse which is priced at $90 after the above coupon. It’s a bit more elaborate though. Over at, the lowest priced playhouse is that same Tot’s house which is coming in at $180. At Sears, the lowest playhouse is this one which is coming in at $120.

Online, there doesn’t seem to be an awful lot of choice or availability for this type of toy. So, from the above research, I believe the Toys R Us deal for the Hello Kitty playhouse is a great price – providing you’re close enough to a Toys R Us to collect at store for free.

July 2 $25 Free Credit & Free Canadian Shipping!!!

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 7:00 PM $25 Free Credit & Free Canadian Shipping!!!

I’ve discovered a US based site called YogaSmoga, which specialises in performance clothing for both men and women, ideally suited to active pursuits such as yoga, running, cycling and more. What brought Yoga Smoga to my attention was the fact that they offer free Canadian shipping on ANY order, with no minimum spend required. And upon further investigations, I also found out that new accounts get $25 free credit to spend on site – sweet deal!

All you have to do is signup on site – you don’t need a special coupon code. The $25 free credit will be in your account and you can use it on your next order. This is what you should see: $25 Free Credit & Free Canadian Shipping!!!


In terms of pricing of the YogaSmoga activewear, it’s something along the lines of what you would see with Lululemon or Lole here in Canada. So I definitely wouldn’t call it cheap to start with – but having the $25 free credit makes a good dent in your order, if you’re only ordering one item to see what they are like. Here are a few examples of items you could buy, along with the reduced prices from the $25 free credit:

One 2 Many Sale Items

Yoga Smoga has a “One 2 Many” sale section, which sounds remarkably similar to the Lululemon’s “We Made Too Much” sale. In that section, there are a lot of heavily discounted items, but sadly the $25 free credit doesn’t apply to those sale items (or to accessories either). The free $25 credit will only apply to the other items on site.

But it could still be worth a look to see if there’s anything else you want to buy. Some examples of the sale items:

For all the above, the sizing and colour choice differs… some colours may be in stock in your size, some not.

Shipping, Duties, Customs?

As many Moosers know, the NAFTA agreement covers items that are made in the US and shipped to Canada – there should not be any extra duties on these items. And it clearly states on the YogaSmoga site that their products are made in the US, so this should apply. However, on their help pages here, it states that anyone outside the US is responsible for applicable taxes and duties in their home jurisdictions. So taxes don’t seem to be included at checkout – it’s possible you may have to pay these later.

If you are making orders for a few items, I’d probably recommend placing separate orders for each one – it’s free shipping anyway, and it reduces the risk of customs delaying your parcel.

Personal Thoughts

I’ve done yoga many times over the years, but I’ve not always had a really dedicated regimen. But I feel that the clothing I wear to yoga can really affect my workout. For example, I have a problem when wearing a t-shirt that’s too short. I feel that when I am in certain poses, the t-shirt will ride up over my butt and I feel self-conscious and need to constantly adjust my clothing. Or, in wearing certain leggings, I found that some were slipping down too much and I wasn’t leaving much to the imagination in terms of ass cleavage. A good set of workout clothing can really complement your workout, and leave one less thing to worry about.

July 2 Accessories from $1.25 & Free Canadian Shipping!

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 11:00 AM Accessories from $1.25 & Free Canadian Shipping!

I’ve discovered yet another cute little site which while it’s not Canadian based, they do ship to Canada and show all the prices in Canadian dollars. Plus, there’s a huge selection of accessories which start at only $1.25 when you register and use the 15% coupon code DLAFFI0124, which all come with FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING to Canada. Super-sweet! If you’re like and me and you enjoy wearing unique and funky accessories that no-one else owns, then is a good place to buy from.

I was thinking of placing an order myself, but I’m on a credit card moratorium just now! I am only buying items that are complete necessities, until I’ve cleared some of my personal debt. It’s surprising but a few dollars here and a few dollars there can really add up… so I am really trying to watch the pennies. But having said that, I am so tempted to get this New Women’s Sexy Lingerie Underwear Sheer Lingerie + G-string for only $3.57 ($3.03 after coupon)… it wouldn’t be for me though, it would be for my OH. :X

Remember the other day we posted about this Grumpy Face purse from Born Pretty for $4.97? Well, there is a very similar one for even cheaper here at Dresslink! It is only $2.48 (inc coupon) with free shipping.

Here is a list of some other really cute and well-priced items that caught my eye (all prices include the 15% coupon):

If you’re buying any clothing or fitted items, just make note that these are probably designed for Asian body types, and thus might be quite small fitting. Just like the Texan mom who left a funny Amazon review about a crop top which fitted her cat and not her daughter, you don’t want to be caught out. Accessories from $1.25 & Free Canadian Shipping!

Remember, it’s probably best to keep your order under $20 as you won’t have to worry about customs and duties.

DIY Phone Holders!

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 8:00 AM

DIY Phone Holders!

Here’s a superb idea for a quick DIY project and a cheap and easy way to keep your home tidy – it’s a cell-phone holder made from a lotion bottle! As you can see in the image above, you just use an empty lotion bottle, cut it to size, cover it in fabric or paint it, and attached it to your outlet. No longer will your cellphone be dangling down the wall, it will rest in its lovely little pocket.

What do you think Moosers? Will you give this a try?

(Thanks makeit-loveit!)

FREE iPad Game: Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow Collector’s Edition (Worth $8!)

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 7:00 AM

FREE iPad Game: Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow Collector’s Edition (Worth $8!)

Starting today, popular casual game-maker Big Fish Games is offering everyone a free, full-version of one of their iPad games – it’s called Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow, and it’s the collector’s edition. This game is worth $7.99CA on the Apple app store, but you can grab it completely FREE just now!

You can click the above link from your device and you should be able to install the game for free. Or, if you are on your computer right now, you should be able to add it to your account to play later. Just note that this is the free FULL version of the game – it’s not a freemium game where you have to pay for extra content once you start the game.

The title of this game on the app store quite bluntly states the style – A Hidden Object Game with Hidden Objects. I wonder if there is anything hidden in this game… FREE iPad Game: Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow Collector’s Edition (Worth $8!) But seriously, I really love this type of game and I’ve played LOADS of them from Big Fish Games on my iPad, and even a few on my desktop PC (though that isn’t as much fun as I don’t have a touchscreen).

I downloaded Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow and gave it a play, before I wrote up this post. The gameplay was fun, but it didn’t feel quite as intuitive as some other puzzle games that I’ve played in the past. It might be my own fault though – I chose a higher difficulty level than normal. I usually play on the basic setting, where clues sparkle and the hint button reloads quite rapidly. But this time, I chose the next up level and there are no sparkling clues to guide me on my way. I had to press the hint button quite a few times to find out what to do next.

Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow takes a good couple of hours to get from start to finish, it’s quite a nice little distraction. If you’re sitting on the sofa in the evenings with your iPad close to hand, it’s an ideal little piece of entertainment to occupy you for a few hours. Well, not just for yourself… I found that my 5 year old daughter was watching in sometimes, trying to find the hidden objects too. FREE iPad Game: Mystery Trackers: Silent Hollow Collector’s Edition (Worth $8!)

What about you… do you like hidden object games? If so, grab this one for free asap!

EXCLUSIVE: Scarlet & Julia Promo Code: $10 Discount On Any Order!

I wanted to show you a store which we’ve never before mentioned here on Bargainmoose, it’s called Scarlet and Julia. They’ve been around for about a year, and they’re based in Montreal. Scarlet & Julia sells a wide range of makeup, cosmetics, fragrances and more, from many top named brands such as OPI, Lise Watier, Consonant, Gucci, Hugo Boss and many more. When we found their site, we dropped them a line and they’ve offered the Moosers a nice little discount code – get $10 off any order, no matter how small!!

Click here to use the Scarlet & Julia coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: SJMOOSE10
  • Discount: $10 off any order
  • Expires: 14th July 2015

Private Sales

Make sure to hit up the private sales tab too, there are offers in there which are more highly discounted than the rest of the site. Apparently, you can save up to 70% off the cost of some items. These items change on a regular basis and just now, you can shop from tops brands such as Marc Jacobs, Balanciaga and Bliss. Some examples of gift sets on offer:

Shipping details

When we discover a new store here on Bargainmoose, the thing we all want to know about is the shipping fees. For Scarlet & Julia, you might be pleased to hear that you can achieve free shipping by spending $75 or more. While that’s a little high on its own, if your order is under this level, then it’s a flat-rate of $9.95 for shipping. If you place an order of $9.95 or less, then you’ll just have to pay the shipping fees. So here’s the way to look at it – if you want to place a small order on Scarlet & Julia (e.g. between $9.95 and $75), use our exclusive coupon code and it’s covering all the shipping fees for you. Or, if your order is larger than $75, then it’s obviously a $10 discount.

DIY Doodle Pillow Case!

Posted by on July 1, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Over on Instructables, I found this super-cute and budget-friendly idea for a kid’s room – the DIY Doodle Pillowcase! I’ve seen these items for retail online at various shops around the world, but in that post, it shows you how to make one for yourself, at a low cost.

All you need is a blank pillowcase, some fabric paint, and some washable markers. Here’s what it looks like:

DIY Doodle Pillow Case!

It is a cute idea, but I was personally thinking of the risk of when you hand your kid a pack of washable markers. Because they are allowed to draw on this pillowcase, wouldn’t they perhaps think they’ve got the green light to draw on every other item in the house?

There is so much to detail in this offer from L’Occitane Canada, that I just cannot fit it all into my title. You’ll just have to read on and see what’s on the go! From free samples with every order to free gifts with purchase, there’s so much to choose from and it’s an ideal time to place an order.

I’ll try and break down all the offers here to show you exactly what you can avail of.

When you use the coupon code BSBV, you can choose from three flavours of jumbo shower gel. Your order must be $45 or more, the shower gel is worth $44 but you can purchase it for only $22. I choose the Verbana shower gel – I’m actually using this in my shower right now and I love it. It’s a 500ml bottle and it’s lasting for ages.

Automatic: Up to 50% off in the summer sale

The L’Occitane summer sale is now on (until the 6th July 2015), and they are advertising up to 50% off many items. For example, this Fleurs de Cerisier L’Eau Hand Cream is half price, down to only $6.

Coupon: 10% discount WUB 3 sale items

Make sure you add three sale items to your shopping cart, use the L’Occitane coupon code EXTRA10 before the end of the 6th July 2015. This gets you an extra 10% discount!

Automatic: 3 free samples on any order

As you go to your shopping cart, you’ll have the option to add three free samples. These usually aren’t terribly large samples, but they’re good samples to show you a variety of products which you may not have tried. When I’ve used the L’Occitane samples in the past, I’ve got a few uses out of them.

Automatic: Free gift wrap

When going through checkout, you can select a free gift wrap pack, and they send you out a luxury box and some tissue paper. It’s great to gift some of your order.

Automatic: Free shipping on $59+

I’m sure you want to get free shipping on your order – just make sure your cart total is over the $59 threshold for this. It’s very easy to get to that amount!

So in summation, here’s a breakdown of what you can get if you place an order totalling $59 or more:

June 30 Weekly Sales on Top Brands & Free Shipping on $29+ & Possible $11 off $40 & Free Samples!

Posted by on June 30, 2015 at 7:00 AM Weekly Sales on Top Brands & Free Shipping on $29+ & Possible $11 off $40 & Free Samples!

Most Moosers here will be well aware of the online store, We’ve mentioned them quite a few times on Bargainmoose – they’re a really great store and you can sometimes score a good bargain or two. This week, they have a ton of sales on some top brand names, so I thought I’d just pull them together into this list. You can scan down the list and see if there are any brands that you really like or regularly purchase, then check out their deals. Here we go!

Free shipping on $29

The minimum threshold for free shipping on is $29, which is pretty reasonable. It would be really easy to stock up on some items to reach that level for free shipping to your home.

New Customers $11 off $40

In case you weren’t aware, we have an exclusive Bargainmoose coupon code for an $11 discount on a $40, which is available for new customers to use. Simply apply the code BARGAINMOOSESAVINGS before the end of the 15th July 2015.

Sample Event

There’s also a free sample event happening through to the 7th July. Spend $40 or more and choose one free sample, spend $80 or more and you can choose two. These are automatic in your cart, you can select them from there.

Range of Brands

Sometimes it can be difficult to find specific brands in-store, and that’s why online reatilers like are so amazing. This quote from one of their customers pretty much sums up what I think about their products ranges:

I was so happy when I found out that you guys carry so many different brands of makeup. There is such a wide selection of products and it makes for a great shopping experience!

(75% off) 36 Packs of Fresh Sugar & Aspartame-Free Mints only $25 & Free Shipping @!

Posted by on June 29, 2015 at 2:00 PM

(75% off) 36 Packs of Fresh Sugar & Aspartame Free Mints only $25 & Free Shipping @!

Buying in bulk can often make prices of individual foodstuffs quite a bit cheaper. And that’s the case today with this pack of 36 “ThreeWorks Snacks” Sugar & Aspartame-Free Mints. They’re one of the current product deals available on, and these mints are worth $100 but are priced at $30. And what’s even nicer is that you can apply our Bargainmoose exclusive coupon code MOOSE5 to save an extra $5 on your purchase, bringing them down to only $25 including shipping!

There are 50 mints per pack, so this means you’re paying just over $0.01 per mint!! You can choose from a selection of flavours, everything from regular spearmint through to liquorice! For me, I’d go with the 24 spearmint and 12 orange, for a bit of variety.

There is a limit of 20 purchases per person on this deal, though I cannot imagine that a normal everyday user would want to buy as much as 20 packs of 36 packs of gum. That’s 36,000 mints! Halitosis… hali-NO-sis.

Want your breath to be as fresh and cool as a cucumber (but aren’t into cucumber)?

For me, this is the type of deal I’d buy then always have the mints in my purse for ages….

To read a bit more about the snacks themselves, you can find more info here on the Threeworks site. Just beware when you click through as they play an annoying tune, you can stop it by clicking the button at the top right of their site.

Our Bargainmoose exclusive Wagjag coupon code is here in our coupon forums, but you don’t just have to use it on the above deal. You can use it on almost anything else on the Wagjag site. There are more grocery deals here, where you can order anything from cod to coffee.

(65% off) Snugli Harnessed Booster Seat now only $84.31 & Free Shipping @!

Posted by on June 29, 2015 at 6:00 AM

(65% off) Snugli Harnessed Booster Seat now only $84.31 & Free Shipping @!

Over the weekend, we set up some absolutely fantastic exclusive coupon codes for Bargainmoose, with discount amounts ranging from $40 to $150, depending on how much you are spending. I had a browse round the site to see what I could see, and there are plenty of deals to be had. One item in particular is standing out to me because I was on the lookout for a deal on something similar – it’s the Snugli Harnessed Booster Seat which is currently priced at $124.31 on, which is a 48% discount. But when you use our coupon code MOOSE40OFF100JULY to get an extra $40 off $100, the car seat drops to only $84.31, which is a 65% discount on the original price!

Remember, everything from comes with free shipping too! So you’re looking at less than ninety bucks for a top brand name, safe, car seat for your little one. Though this Snugli car seat comes in different patterns, the deal on this one is for the pin stripe model. It’s pretty gender-neutral in my opinion – you could use this for either a boy or a girl.

What I like about this seat is that it will last you for a long time, as it can be used as a harnessed booster seat as shown in the image above. But you can also remove the harnesses and use it in conjunction with your car seat belt, for when the child is a little older and bigger. The weight range for safe use of this car seat is 40 to 110 lbs, so you can see that the car seat will be useful for quite a while. My little 2 year old daughter is in a very similar seat at the moment, using the harness portion. When she’s heavy enough, I can remove those harnesses and use the seat belt instead, as I did with my older daughter.

Upgrade to Camo!

If you are so inclined, you can opt for the camo pattern in the same Snugli car seat here. It’s slightly more expensive, coming in at a final price of only $97.40 with free shipping, by using the coupon code above. For the sake of the extra $13, you might prefer that pattern.

Perfect Lens has been a growing name when it comes to buying contact lenses online in Canada. They have very competitive prices, as well as frequent coupon codes and free shipping offers. That’s just what I’ve found today – a great coupon code for new customers. If you’ve never before made a purchase online at Perfect Lens Canada, then now is a good time to try them out. You can save $10 when placing an order of $39 or more, as well as get free shipping to your home!

  • Coupon Code: WLCM
  • Discount: $10 off $39 & free shipping
  • Expires: Unknown

So if you wear contact lenses on a regular basis and have never before shopped online at PerfectLens, now would be a brilliant time to give them a shot. $10 off $39 equates to a maximum of a 25% discount, and the free shipping is also worth $9.95 – that’s their flat-rate. And even if you place a small order that is JUST over the $39 mark and the $10 coupon code brings your order value down below the $39 free shipping threshold, the shopping cart will still give you free shipping – sweet.

Perfect Lens Canada carries all the top brand names in contact lenses with which many of you will be familir; Acuvue, Fresh Look, Air Optix, Bausch & Lomb, Cooper Vision, and many more. It can be quite easy to price compare these deals at Perfect Lens to see if they’re as good as your regular contact lens providers. Find the brand of contacts that you usually wear, and pop them in to the competitor’s sites such as Clearly Contacts or Smart Buy Glasses. You can easily compare like for like, and see how many you need to buy to get the best deal.

For illustration, I am going to price compare the brand that I use; these Acuvue 1 Day Moist, which cost $19.98 per box on Perfect Lens. Buy buying 2 boxes for a total of $39.98 and applying the coupon code, the final price is $14.98 per box, including shipping. The same lenses on Clearly Contacts are $28.99 per box (plus shipping). To buy Acuvue 1 Day Moist on Smart Buy Glasses would cost me $38.95 each, with free shipping. So as you can see, for this particular example, the cost of lenses on Perfect Lens Canada is most excellent, dude.

Do you need to stock up on your prescription lenses?
