Lacoste Canada Coupon Code For Free Shipping

Lacoste Canada Coupon Code For Free Shipping

Well, it’s very rare to see one of these – a coupon code for totally free shipping from Lacoste Canada!  Usually, you have to spend $150 or more to get free shipping from Lacoste.ca. This coupon code brings the minimum spend down to ZERO.

Click here to use the Lacoste coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: LACSHIP
  • Discount: Free shipping, no minimum
  • Expires: 12th August 2014

This means that you can buy anything on the Lacoste site and use this coupon code without worrying your pretty little head about shipping fees. You also don’t have to worry about pesky customs or dirty duties as all orders ship from within Canada itself. Sah-weet! Time to get spending…

Where do Bargainmoosers go when they get a hot coupon code? The sale section, of course! What I usually do is find a filter that sorts items from “price low to high” so that I can see the lowest priced items first. However, the further I scan down the page, the more I am liable to spend…

First up, there are a few kids items on special offer:

Obviously, the prices above are not the same as you’re going to be finding in-store @ Old Navy… Lacoste is a designer brand so the sale prices reflect that.

Over to the women’s sale items, here are my picks:

And what about for the dudes?

Remember, Lacoste returns are FREE. With your parcel, they include a free pre-paid return label and you have 30 days to return any unwanted items. This is such a handy feature when you are shopping online. You don’t have to worry about getting the right sizes first time. If you’re not sure if you’re going to fit a medium or a large… just order both. Obviously you’ll pay for both items initially… but if you return the extra one for free, then get a refund for it, you’re WINNING.

MiniTake.com: Free Shipping Site-Wide

MiniTake.com: Free Shipping Site Wide

I recently discovered this website and wanted to show it to the Bargainmoosers. Minitake.com is a Chinese based company, something a bit like Dealextreme who we’ve mentioned on here quite a bit in the past. Now, there are many such clones of this type of site, but I wanted to highlight Minitake as everything on their site comes with totally free shipping to Canada!

There is a huge range of categories to choose from; consumer electronics to fashion & clothing. There’s even a $2 zone to check out. There are lots of little gadgets in there, for under $2 each. While some things might not necessarily be amazing (magnetic losing weight toe rings?), there could be some handy items; perhaps for kids party bags, stocking stuffers. Examples:

In our money-saving articles section here on Bargainmoose, Clare once wrote a piece about saving money on your wedding dress. And Minitake is just the type of site where you can try to do this. Some examples of wedding dresses on there:

These wedding dresses aren’t going to be quite the same quality as you’d get from paying thousands of dollars at a local bridal store. But, you’re talking a mere fraction of the price for a dress you’re going to be wearing for a fraction of a day. This is actually what my sister did – she bought two wedding dresses from cheap Chinese sites, chose the one she like and had some alterations done to give it a better fit. The alterations cost more than the wedding dress itself, but it was still a pittance compared to the price of a brand new dress from a local wedding boutique.

Shipping, Customs, Duties

As most of the savvy Bargainmoosers will already know, if you order anything over $20 in value to be shipped in to Canada, you run the risk of having to pay customs and duties at your door. Just keep that in mind if you are ordering any of the higher value items from Minitake. But, if you’re just ordering small trinkets and lower priced items, that shouldn’t be a problem at all – free shipping, no extra fees.

Nakamura Runner 10″ Bike Boys 2014 Only $48 @ Sportchek Canada

Posted by on July 28, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Nakamura Runner 10 Bike Boys 2014 Only $48 @ Sportchek Canada

Over at Sportchek Canada, there’s a super price on this little Nakamura Runner Boys 10″ 2014 Bike. The regular price is not stated on the Sportchek site, but you can pick up the bike for only $47.99 which they say is a 20% discount.

Then, you can use our exclusive Bargainmoose Sportchek promo code FSMOOSE0614 to get free shipping on any order with no minimum spend. That’s a further saving of $14.95!

While they call this a “boys” bike, I would have absolutely no trouble using this for either a boy or a girl. The colour scheme does not matter at all, my four year old would love it! I think that colour of green is quite generic.

This type of bike is what I would call a “balance bike.” I’ve never used balance bikes myself or with my kids, they didn’t seem to exist when I was young. They’ve definitely become a lot more popular these days. Apparently, they get the kids used to the balance of a normal bicycle, without the child developing the reliance on stabilisers.

I recently got my daughter a pedal bike which is a similar size to this, but we’ve had to put stabilisers on it in order for her to be able to use it. It was given to us for free so I’m not quibbling… but I’d much rather have had a balance bike to get her used to that mechanism.

Canadian Shipping

If you’re new to the Sportchek site, you could alternatively sign up to their emails here and get a coupon code for 10% discount on your first purchase. Obviously, if you’re only buying this balance bike on its own, then that would only be a saving of $4.80… so the free shipping code works out better in this case. But, if your order happens to be going higher than the $150 mark… you’d be better signing up and getting the 10% coupon code.

Woolovers.ca Coupon Code: Free Shipping, No Minimum

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Woolovers.ca Coupon Code: Free Shipping, No Minimum

We’ve mentioned Woolovers.ca in some coupon roundups in the past but we’ve never before had a dedicated post about this company on Bargainmoose. Time for one now! For a couple of days only, Woolovers is offering totally free shipping on any order, with no minimum spend required.

Click here to use the Woolovers coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: FREEPOST
  • Discount: Free shipping
  • Expires: 31st July 2014

In case you haven’t heard of Woolovers, they are a retailer of fine cashmere and wool knitwear. And there are a few areas on their site which you might want to hit up first:

Fine clothing such as cashmere and woolen items are generally not cheap, so it’s great to take advantage of deals like this when you find them.

Let’s see what we can see:

Men

Unisex V Neck Sweater for $36 or two for $68 – while it says unisex, this item was listed under the men’s sale section. I really like this style of V-neck on a handsome man…

Striped Button Crew Neck Sweater was $42, now $36 each or two for $68 – I really like the red and blue stripey sweater, not so sure about the style of the buttons on the shoulder though.

Women

Silk & Cotton Sleeveless Vest was $32, now $22 (or two for $38) – if you’re ordering two for $38, that works out at only $19 each. How about ordering two different colours – there are quite a few to choose from.

Stripe Sweater Dress was $40, now $28 (or two for $46) – I love the style of this sweater dress and I can easily see myself ordering two; one in blue and the other in green. That would work out at only $23 per dress.

Canadian Shipping

Now, this is where it gets a little bit confusing. Even though Woolovers has a dot CA domain, it doesn’t mean they ship from within Canada. In fact, Woolovers actually ship from outside Canada so you may be subject to additional customs and duties which you might have to pay at your door. Hopefully you won’t incur any extra fees but please keep that in mind when you are ordering.

What I would recommend – as it’s free shipping with no minimum, if you want a few items, just place separate orders for each item. That way, you’ll have less chance of being hit by customs if you are placing one bigger order. In the comments below, please let us know how it goes. Tell us what you think of your Woolovers experience please!

Coupons & Shipping

This Woolovers coupon code can be found here on our Woolovers coupon page. Any codes that we find for this store will be saved there, always check in before you finalise your online purchase. Saving on shipping is super. Woolovers.ca Coupon Code: Free Shipping, No Minimum Additionally, there are many more stores which offer free shipping with no minimum – have a read of them here.

The Last Hunt Coupon Code: Get Free Shipping

The Last Hunt Coupon Code: Get Free Shipping

If you were planning on ordering some items from The Last Hunt but didn’t want to pay any pesky shipping fees, then now is the time to do so. This weekend, they have released a coupon code for free shipping and no minimum spend.

Click here to use The Last Hunt coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: BCKSHP
  • Discount: Free Shipping
  • Expires: 28th July 2014

The coupon code will cover shipping charges up to a value of $30… so if you live in a really remote region, this would be an ideal time to take advantage of free shipping.

Personally, I’ve never liked the layout of The Last Hunt’s online store. I find it very hard to browse and see all the items without feeling like my brain is being overloaded with information… but then again, they often have great bargains on brand named clothing and footwear. Well, forgoing my misgivings about browsing the site, I’ll dig out a few brand-named bargains for you to have a glance at:

Men

SALOMON Trail Runner Ls Tee was $59.99 now $35.99 (40% off) – this looks like a good men’s tee for training or running. Have you noticed how much you see the word “wicks” nowadays, when referring to moisture?

MERRELL Mix Master 2 Waterproof shoes were $149.99 now $44.99 (70% off) – excellent discount amount. They look good for running on hard or varied surfaces.

Women

Vivobarefoot Kali shoes were $109.99 now $26.99 (75% off) – these look like a great little comfy pair of shoes to run around in. When I used to be a waitress, this is the type of footwear that I would choose to wear, as I’d have been on my feet all day long.

SALOMON XR Mission training shoes were $119.99 now $53.99 (55% off) – I think my sister has this same pair of running shoes! She runs a LOT and goes through many pairs of shoes.

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

I blogged a hot video game deal earlier, Fallout New Vegas from uPlay. And I’ve stumbled on another hot video game deal for the PC. This time, it’s the Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Game of the Year Bundle Pack. The regular price of this video game bundle is $49.98 but you can save $39.99 at Newegg.ca now – the digital video game bundle is priced at only $9.99!

As I said above, this is a digital bundle. You won’t be getting anything shipped to your home, you will just get the game codes to download and install these games on your PC. As far as I can see, you’ll need to download Steam to enable you to play this.

Just for your information, this video game bundle at Newegg.ca doesn’t give you all the potential Borderlands DLC and content. There’s some additional DLC for Borderlands 2 which isn’t included… you might want to consider adding that at a later stage.

I’m a HUGE fan of the Borderlands PC game franchise! When the first game was released about five years ago, I was an avid fan and played it every evening and weekend for months and months. I enjoyed it immensely because I played it co-op with my partner and we used to have great fun completing all the missions together. The only real problem I had at the time was that I was pregnant… so an extended session of Borderlands usually resulted in me throwing up. But it was worth it!

Then funnily enough, when Borderlands 2 was released, I was pregnant with my second baby. There was still a bit of throwing up but not nearly as much as the first time round. I didn’t get quite as addicted to Borderlands 2 as much as I had been to the first edition. I don’t think the gameplay was quite as good fun…. But it was still a pretty entertaining game.

Price Comparison!

While it is a little hard to price compare this PC video game set because it’s a bundle, we’ll see what we can do to show you how good the price from Newegg actually is. On Steam itself, here is the price to buy the individual components:

  • Borderlands GOTY – $29.99
  • Borderlands 2 – $19.99

Therefore, the total to buy this set through Steam right now would be $49.98 – and you’re getting it for a measly $9.99 through Newegg. More price comparisons:

  • EBgames – $19.99 plus $29.99 = $49.98
  • Amazon.ca – $11.99 plus $14.43 = $26.42

Definitely the best price from Newegg!

Toshiba Portable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker/Speakerphone only $40 & Free Shipping @ Toshiba.ca! (Expired)

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Toshiba  Portable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker/Speakerphone only $40 & Free Shipping @ Toshiba.ca! (Expired)

Originally priced at $119.99, you can pick up the TY-SP3K Portable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker and Speakerphone for only $39.99 with free shipping from Toshiba.ca just now.

If you don’t know what this device is, the Toshiba TY-SP3K is designed to hook up to your smartphone or tablet and give you much better sound quality to play some awesome tunes.

Some highlights:

  • Speaker Wattage: 3W x2 and Bass driver 5W
  • Bluetooth music play time; 10 hours at 75% volume level
  • Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion 1100mAH battery
  • Handsfree speakerphone function
  • H80mm, W190mm, D60mm

The Toshiba TY-SP3K has a built-in rechargeable battery which enables it to operate for up to 8 hours on the standard charge. This sounds really handy – if you’re having a party or something, you could easily move it around the house or into the garden, to entertain your guests with ease. Recently, we’ve been having quite a few BBqs at home to entertain the family, but we don’t have a little portable music system to take to the bottom of the garden – this device would be ideal.

To get the music to play on this device, you’d connect it up to your device via Bluetooth… so just check the specs of your device to make sure it’s compatible.

Reviews

I was googling for reviews of this Toshiba TY-SP3K speaker and I found a video review here on Globalnews.ca. They start talking about this item at about 2 minutes 44 seconds. It actually looks smaller in hand than I had imagined from the image on the Toshiba site, as there is nothing on there to compare the scale.

Price Comparison

All other Canadian online stores have this Toshiba TY-SP3K Portable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker and Speakerphone at much higher prices. Not all of these include shipping, but the base prices elsewhere are $70 @ Computervalley, $85 @ FrontierPC, $90 @ Amazon, $90 @ Aartech, $120 @ Dell. You can see that the price directly from Toshiba.ca online is really super, especially as it comes with free shipping too.

The Gap Canada Coupon Code For 40% Off!

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 10:00 AM

The Gap Canada Coupon Code For 40% Off!

We frequently see coupon codes from The Gap brands (that includes Old Navy and Banana Republic) but one of the highest we usually see from The Gap is around 40%. And that’s what they’ve released today – a coupon code for 40% discount on almost anything from their online store. Here are the details.

Click here to use The Gap coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: BIGTIMEC
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expires: 29th July 2014

There are a few exclusions: Kid’s Uniforms, First Favorites, Junk Food and Umbro.

There are, of course, tons of great items in the sale section at The Gap with which you can pair this coupon code to make even sweeter deals. There is already up to 75% off select items in there! Let me try and find you a few bargains (these prices are with the coupon code applied):

Men

Women

Kids

Baby

In the sale section, sizing can sometimes be quite limited so you might have to browse around a bit to find the best bargains in your size.

Canadian Shipping!

On The Gap’s site, you must spend $50 or more to get free shipping, which is really easy to do. Remember, they’ve even got a shared shopping cart with Old Navy and Banana Republic – you can always pop some small items from there into your cart if you are trying to achieve that minimum spend. But, as items from The Gap tend to be a little pricier than the sister sites, I don’t think you’d have any trouble achieving the $50 minimum threshold.

We’ve got this Gap coupon code in our coupon section, always stop by before you buy anything online to see if there’s a coupon code for an additional saving.

Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition Only $5 @ uPlay! (PC Game)

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition Only $5 @ uPlay! (PC Game)

If you’re a PC gamer and you are looking for a new game upon which to spend a little of your time, check out this deal for the Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition from uPlay.com. You can pick up the game for only $5 right now!

Just to show you what you are getting in the Fallout New Vegas Ultimate edition set:

Includes all the Fallout: New Vegas content including the full suite of highly acclaimed add-on content: Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road.

My partner is a fan of the Fallout games, but he’s yet to play New Vegas. It appears there are many PC games on the shelf and not enough hours in the day to play them… especially with two kids in the house! I’ve played a little of Fallout 3, but never got round to completing the game. I personally really love the styling of the Fallout games… the retro images, the dry humour. Have you played this game? What do you think of it?

The reviews on Metacritic give Fallout New Vegas a metascore of  84 based on 39 critics. That’s a high score for Metacritic. User ratings are an average of 8.3/10… also really favourable.

Steam Required

For those of you who are gamers, you know what I mean when I say that uPlay give you a Steam CD Key for Fallout New Vegas when you purchase this. If you don’t know what that means, you’ll just have to download the Steam gaming client to your computer, then you will be able to play Fallout New Vegas from there.

Price Compare

EB Games are currently selling this game for $19.99, same price at BestBuy.ca. Amazon.ca are selling the PC game for only $9.99… but that still is twice the price of the digital game download from uPlay.com. Great price there!

Costume Supercentre Canada Coupon Code: Save 15% off $20+

Posted by on July 26, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Costume Supercentre Canada Coupon Code: Save 15% off $20+

Costume Supercenter is a major US brand which operates a site selling costumes; they ship to Canada and we’ve mentioned them here on Bargainmoose in the past. But did you know that they’ve recently opened their virtual doors with a dedicated Canadian online store – all items shipped from within Canada? No? Well, now you know! For a limited time, they’re offering a coupon code to get a bit of a discount on your order. Here are all the juicy details:

Click here to use the Costume Supercentre coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: 15FSCA
  • Discount: 15% off $20+
  • Expires: Unknown

There are a fantastic range of costumes and accessories on the Costume Supercentre Canadian site. I am already planning ahead for this Halloween – I just love to get me and my kids dressed up in all manner of fanciful outfits. I don’t know what we’re going to do this year… but I have an idea. Recently in New York, I saw Wicked on Broadway and some of the outfits were great. I think I am going to be dressing up in a very simple wicked witch of the west outfit, and completely cover any of my exposed skin in green. I’ve already got a hat and the face paint, I’ll just need a simple witch dress, something like this classic witch costume which is $64.99 or $55.24 when the coupon code is added. I think it would be super-cute to also make my 1year old and 4 year old into mini witches too!

A few years ago, I put my 1 year old baby in this Pink Bunny Newborn/infant costume (which is $37.99 or $32.29 with the coupon) and she was just the picture of cuteness! However, the soft carrot rattle accessory was completely sodden in dribble. That’s my daughter in the picture above!!

Costume Stores

You know, there are very few major online stores in Canada which are dedicated to costumes, so the decision for Costume Supercentre to open a dedicated Canadian online store is really good news for shoppers. You’ve got a little competition in Spirit Halloween, but their Canadian online orders ship from the US. There are some smaller stores like Oya Costumes, but nothing quite on the scale of what Costume Supercentre Canada has opened.

Canadian Shipping

It’s great to hear that Canadian shipping is free when you are spending $80 or more at Costume Supercentre.

While there aren’t many coupon codes in here just yet, we’ve got this Costume Supercentre code here in our coupon forums. Before you buy online at Costume Supercentre Canada, make sure and stop by the Bargainmoose coupon pages to check how much you can save by using a promo code when buying online.

How about you? What will you plan on dressing up as this Halloween?

Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender only $9.94 @ Walmart.ca & Free Shipping!

Posted by on July 26, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender only $9.94 @ Walmart.ca & Free Shipping!

Over on Walmart.ca just now, they’ve got a super price on a budget-blender. You can pick up the Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender for a mere $9.94 with free shipping to your home. This is one of Walmart’s current rollback deals… they’ve got quite a few great offers on site just now, with really competitive prices.

As you can see in the image above, you have a choice of colours in the blender; black, red, silver and blue. So, you can choose the model that best fits the colour scheme of your kitchen. I prefer the silver as that would match in with some of the other appliances in my kitchen.

This Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender comes with something called a travel lid, I hadn’t heard of this before. Apparently, it allows you to drink directly from the jar and you can carry it about with you.

Obviously as the name states, this is a “single serve” blender, so it’s not one of those massive family-sized appliances. But I think it sounds very handy if you were considering blending some things in the morning, perhaps for the journey to work. The jar is dishwasher safe too, so you can just pop it in there for a good rinse once you are finished with it.

Upon googling for “Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender” to see if there are any other places to price compare this device, I found it on Amazon.ca for $14.99 (plus shipping fees). All other online stores seem to be pricing this Hamilton Beach blender above $15, so the Walmart price is very strong.

There are 17 five star reviews on Amazon, with comments such as:

I bought this machine to make baby food… and it came through. It is excellent. I boil up the fruits and veggies, add a little water to the blender and purees great!

That actually sounds like a fantastic idea, I hadn’t considered that until I read the above review. If you’re about to start weaning a little one, you could consider getting one of these blenders for that purpose.

Blending seems super popular at the moment! I’ve heard of people blending all sorts of things… what are your favourite recipes to blend?

BoxFresh Sparko Men’s Shoes Only $49.98 & Free Shipping @ Brown’s Shoes & 25% Off Further Items

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 1:00 PM

BoxFresh Sparko Men’s Shoes Only $49.98 & Free Shipping @ Brown’s Shoes & 25% Off Further Items

I got an email from Browns Shoes stating that today is the last day for their free site-wide shipping on any item. Upon checking out the deals on site, I stumbled on to the sale section which has up to 70% off a huge range of shoes. I’ve picked out these BoxFresh Sparko Men’s Shoes which have been discounted by 67% off their original prices – down from $150 to only $49.98 with free shipping to your home.

These are a well-known brand, a comfy men’s shoe in a black leather finish. I’ve been hunting for something in this style for my partner. He’s a size 12 and it can be very difficult to get him something that fits and looks good too.

Additional 25% Discount

On top of the great price on the above men’s shoes, if you buy any additional item, you’ll get a further 25% discount on whichever item is the lowest price. So just for the sake of illustration, I am adding two pairs of $49.98 shoes to my cart. The total comes to $87.46, working out at $43.73 per pair.

Sizing

Sometimes when you are shopping in the sale section, sizing can be quite limited as all the common sizes are usually out of stock. With these particular Sparko shoes from Boxfresh, Brown’s has quite a few sizes left – from size 8 up to size 12.

Price Comparing

It’s very hard to price compare shoes as there are so many styles and variations! I cannot find this exact pair from any other retailer, but you can compare some similar models. For example, the  BOXFRESH SPARKO CAMO is $96 @ The Shoe Company, the Boxfresh Sparko Ripstop Trend Shoes are $125 @ Sportchek, the Boxfresh Men’s Sparko Sneakers are $96 @ Monod Sports. Hot price from Brown’s, I believe.

Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset Only $23.62 & Free Shipping @ eBay.ca

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset Only $23.62 & Free Shipping @ eBay.ca

If you’re looking for a good deal on a low-cost bluetooth headset for some handsfree chatting, have a glance at this Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset which is currently on offer from eBay.ca. You can pick up this device for only $23.62 with free shipping!

The Bluetooth headset is originally priced in US dollars, coming in at $21.99 which equates to about $23.62 Canadian.

Shipping

Even though the Motorola H17 is being shipping from the US, the item listing does state this:

International items may be subject to customs processing and additional charges.

There’s a very small chance you might get hit with an extra fee at your door as I mentioned in this recent article about Canadian shipping, as the headset is just over the $20 customs limit. However, we’ll all keep the fingers crossed that you don’t pay anything extra! If you make an order for this Motorola, please tell us how it went in the comments below.

Packaging

This Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset comes with “Non-Retail Packaging,” meaning that it is not in its original packaging or it may be unsealed. I think for this reason, the sellers cannot class it as brand new… but the item is new and unused, it’s just the packaging that’s not as it was when it left the factory.

Price Comparison

Right now, a marketplace seller on Amazon.ca is offering this same headset for $83, it’s out of stock but it was $119 @ TigerDirect, and it’s also priced at $88 @ CDW. Therefore, I think this is a great deal on eBay.

Video Review

If you’d like to see a bit more about this item before you buy, have a watch of this video review:

Other Free Shipping Deals @ eBay

While we don’t usually post deals from individual eBay sellers, I actually spotted this Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset highlighted in eBay’s “free shipping deals” section. There, eBay features a range of hot items from reputable sellers. There are a lot more hot electronics deals in there too. But just watch out in case any of them are shipping from the US, remember your potential customs and duties, etc.

Thomas Wooden Railway Sets For Half Price @ Sears.ca & Extra $10 Off $50 Coupon!

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Thomas Wooden Railway Sets For Half Price @ Sears.ca & Extra $10 Off $50 Coupon!

If you know some little ones who are fans of Thomas the Tank and his assorted train-friends, check out the deal on these wooden Thomas bits and pieces online at Sears Canada. They’re having a 50% sale on this range of toys, you can see all the various items here:

Also, with the Sears coupon code 941612770 you can save an extra $10 off $50 on any order, right through to the end of July 2014. So, if you’re buying a few of the lower priced Thomas items, you could easily make your order up to $50 and save the extra $10 discount.

Here are some examples of the individual Thomas items that are on offer at Sears online right now:

Price Compare?

I priced compared the last item there, the Mountaintop Supply Run Set to see how good a deal it was. You can buy that set for $170 @ MastermindToys, $174 @ Amazon, $150 @ ToySense, so the $75 price on Sears is really awesome. I didn’t price compare every single item above, so feel free to do your own due diligence on that if you’re buying a few items. I only price compared the most expensive set to see how the deal shaped up.

Stocking Up For Christmas?

You’ll hate to hear me talking about it in July, but think ahead to Christmas! The best way not to spend an absolute fortune on Christmas gifts for the kids, is to buy the likes of this Thomas offer from Sears. When you spot a hot offer on an item that the little ones would like, buy it now and then pop it away in the closet until December. You will have saved money, you won’t be worrying about shopping in the crowded malls in silly season, and your kid will get a fantastic pressie.

Canadian Shipping

As usual with Sears.ca, you’d have to spend $100 or more to get free shipping to your home. If you’re not wanting to spend $100 solely on Thomas items, consider adding some other things to your shopping cart to make it up to that minimum value for free shipping. If you are only ordering a few items though, shipping depends on what you are buying. Regular shipping starts at $7.95, with shipping to your local Sears store starting at $3.95. If you’re spending less than $100, you might want to factor those costs in to your order.

Belkin 6 Outlet Surge Protector Only $14.99 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

If you’re in need of some more power sockets for any devices in your house, consider the deal on this Belkin BV106050 Volt Surge Protector With USB Charger 6 Outlets. The regular price is $34.99 but you can currently buy it at NCIX Canada for a measly $14.99 as well as FREE shipping to your home!

You can buy cheaper power bars, but this Belkin one has a few extra features which could make it worth the extra money. First of all, it’s a Belkin – this is a really top-notch brand name when it comes to accessories like this. Belkin have an excellent reputation for great quality items.

Secondly, this power bar also has two built-in USB ports which you can use for charging up your various devices. This is a super-handy-feature to be honest. Sometimes I’ve had to power up my computer just to charge up my eBook reader – whereas with this Belkin, you could just pop the eBook in to that. I am sure this is true of many of your other USB devices.

Thirdly, this is a “surge protector” which means that if there is any sort of electrical power surge, this Belkin power bar will protect the devices which are attached to it.

Item Image

There’s an image on the NCIX site and I’ve used it in this blog post. But they say, “Actual product may not be exactly as shown.” So beware, you might not get a power bar that looks exactly like the above, but it will have all the stated features and specifications.

Reviews

On NCIX, this Belkin product had 17 reviews in total and of those 17, six are rated at 5 stars, seven at 4 stars, which seems very positive. There are lots more comments on NCIX which you can read, but one that stood out to me was this one from Scottc:

Great device, replaces 2 USB chargers, high enough current to charge most tablets. The ability to screw the unit securely into the wall is very nice feature.

Sounds good! I definitely like the ability to attach it to the wall to tidy up some of the loose wiring and the like. I currently have a 14 month old girl just learning to walk, and she is pulling and poking at absolutely everything round the house. Wires seem to be her favourite thing to be tugging on, so it’s great to have them all tidied away with the likes of this Belkin device.

Canadian Shipping

Don’t worry about shipping in this case, it’s free on this Belkin 6 Outlet Surge Protector. You know, it’s rare that we see items from NCIX with free shipping, especially such low priced merchandise.
