Canadian Freebies: Jasmine & Bergamote EDT or Almond Shower Oil From L’Occitane Canada

Canadian Freebies: Jasmine & Bergamote EDT or Almond Shower Oil From L’Occitane Canada

I mentioned this deal earlier today in our weekly newsletter but I think that the offer is good enough to warrant a blog post of its own now. Over on the Facebook page of L’Occitane Canada, they’ve got an offer which you can claim to receive a free 35ml Almond Shower Oil or a free 7.5ml Jasmine & Bergamote Eau de Toilette. Here are the details:

If you redeem the coupon in-store, this deal is totally free! Just click through to Facebook above, like the page, hit “get offer” and follow the instructions.

As I write this, over 4,000 people have already claimed the offer. I’m not sure if they’re setting a limit as to the number they’re giving out… but if you’re interested, I’d claim the offer sooner rather than later.

Alternatively, you can use a coupon code online to get the same freebies, but you’d have to make a purchase to do so. To do that, here are the details:

  • Coupon Code: MINI
  • Discount: Free with a $35 spend & free shipping
  • Expires: 9th September 2014

The minimum spend is $35 for that, and you’d also get free shipping. Perhaps if you were placing an order anyway, this would be handy to throw in your shopping cart.

Vitarock Canada: Free Shipping On Any Order PLUS 25% Coupon Code!

Posted by on August 31, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Vitarock Canada: Free Shipping On Any Order PLUS 25% Coupon Code!

Vitarock recently tweeted us to tell us that it was their first birthday, and to celebrate, they were offering free shipping site-wide. As free shipping is usually only on a minimum order of $50 or more, I thought that it was good enough to let you guys know about it.

But let’s make a good deal even hotter. I checked our Vitarock coupon page to see if there were any good coupon codes with which to combine the free shipping deal, and there were! You can save an extra 25% by adding this coupon code!

  • Coupon Code: FEEDBACK25
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expires: Unknown

Just note that this coupon code also seems to discount the price after taxes have been added on, so that actually sweetens things up a little more.

So if you plan on ordering from Vitarock, I think this free shipping and coupon code combo makes an excellent deal. You can order anything on site without having to worry about making your cart up to a particular level in order to achieve free shipping. For example, I tested the coupon code combo out on this Green Beaver Co. Junior Conditioning Detangler which was originally priced at $9.89 for a 250ml bottle. With the coupon code, the price drops to $7.10 with free shipping (plus tax, of course).

Some of the current special offers that you could take advantage of – these are all at 50% off and include the extra 25% off and free shipping:

There is a huge variety of “all things healthy” for sale on Vitarock, such as supplements, vitamins and more. Have a browse! Now is a good time to shop…

Stargate SG1, Atlantis, Universe DVDs: $7.99 Per Season @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on August 31, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Stargate SG1, Atlantis, Universe DVDs: $7.99 Per Season @ Best Buy Canada

If there are any Moosers who are fans of the Stargate universe, then check out this deal on various Stargate DVDs on Best Buy Canada. You can pick up many of the individual seasons for only $7.99 each!

You can choose from Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, or Stargate Universe. The DVDs of each season are all $7.99 each… the blu-rays are more expensive coming in at $14.99, with some not being available online.

Now, the protestors amongst you would question as to why you don’t just watch these online, if you have the likes of Netflix or other streaming services. But if you’re a fan, sometimes you just want to own a physical copy of certain shows. Also, not all the shows might be available on the service you rent… and you won’t necessarily be paying for that subscription for ever, either. Having hard copies of the DVDs is sometimes a nice choice to make.

One of the first ever VIDEOS I purchase was the original Stargate Movie. Remember the one? It was the 1994 release starring James Spader and Kurt Russell. I LOVED that movie. That led me to watch the TV series, which I also fell in love with. I have to say that Stargate SG-1 was probably one of my all-time favourite shows. I actually watched all of them through Netflix mailing DVDs to your home, to watch and return… in the old days!

I’ve watched all five seasons of Stargate Atlantis too. I enjoyed it, but it definitely was not as memorable as Stargate SG1. And as for Stargate Universe – I have not watched it! And guess what Netflix says:

Stargate Universe is unavailable to stream

Ha ha! This would be an ideal time for me to buy the DVDs and catch up on it.

What about shipping?

If you spend $25 or more @ Best Buy Canada, you will get free shipping to your home. If you’re buying a few seasons of the above show, then you’re good for free shipping.

Ancestry.ca Free Access Weekend!

Posted by on August 31, 2014 at 12:49 PM

Ancestry.ca Free Access Weekend!

This weekend on Ancestry.ca, they are offering totally free access to all of their global genealogy records. This only happens once every few months… so if you had planned on joining up to try and compile your family tree or track down a family member, now would be a good time to do so.

The free access on Ancestry.ca runs through to the end of Monday the 1st September 2014, so you have today and tomorrow to make use of the freebie.

Here’s a quick blurb about Ancestry.ca, in case you are not aware of what service they provide:

Discover the lives of your ancestors with FREE ACCESS to 1 billion new records from 67 countries around the world.

Ancestry.ca covers birth, death, marriage, immigration and occupation records and is a fantastic tool in building up your family tree.

My partner has been using Ancestry.ca quite a bit over the last few months. He is currently in the process of trying to track down a distant branch of family for his Great Uncle. This relative had a brother who passed away during World War 2, but they’ve completely lost touch with that side… his nieces and nephews, maybe great nieces and nephews, etc. As my partner is digging back through the trail of births, deaths and marriages, he keeps finding out little-known interesting facts about distant relatives. For example, he found out that his Great Uncle was involved in air raids that we’ve only ever heard about in English and American war movies, such as the Bismarck and the Tirpitz.

My partner tells me that if someone from another branch of your family is putting data on to Ancestry.ca, then it really helps you in your own search. So, as you’re doing your own research, you should definitely try and add as much information on to Ancestry.ca too – aiding others in the process of filling in their own familial gaps.

Logitech Z130 Speakers Only $9 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on August 31, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Logitech Z130 Speakers Only $9 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Over on Amazon.ca, there’s a sweet deal on a little set of Logitech Z130 Speakers. These speakers are down from $29.99 to only $9 right now!

As I am sure most of you are aware, you only get free shipping when your Amazon.ca order is $25 or more, so these speakers don’t qualify for free shipping if you buy them on their own. You’d have to add some other items to your cart too. With Amazon, it’s easy to find things you need to make an order up to $25.

However, if you have the Amazon Prime student deal, you’ll get free shipping on any order. Keep that in mind if you are a student!

A few notes about these particular speakers:

  • 5 watts of power, stereo sound
  • Low-profile design
  • On-speaker volume & power controls & jack
  • 3.5mm jack input for MP3, DVD, CD player
  • Works with Windows and Mac OS

So, you can see that these are very handy little devices! Obviously at this price point and specification, they’re not going to produce room shaking sound, but they’d be ideal for a few casual tunes, some light background music. The Logitech Z130 Speakers are not going to give you all the bass notes in a Rammstein tune, but I am sure they’ll adequately pump out a little Dido or Coldplay.

There are not many reviews for the Logitech Z130 Speakers on Amazon, only seven in total. However, most people that have reviewed these speakers give it a very positive score. For example, Teddy says:

The speakers aren’t flashy or going to deliver top notch sound. For the price they are everything you need. They’re small but with excellent sound quality and it fills the room quite easily. Great bang for your buck.

Sounds about right!

Let’s check out the prices elsewhere: $25 @ BestBuy, $25 @ Newegg, $33 @ Staples, $30 @ Walmart, $26 @ TigerDirect, $35 @ TheSource. The closest price point I can see is $10 @ LondonDrugs, but again, you’d have to pay shipping on top of that.

Bath & Body Works Printable Coupon: Get Between $10 & $45 Discount (EXPIRED)

Here’s a rare printable coupon for Bath & Body Works which offers a dollar discount in-store! The discount amount that you get will depend on how large your order is. Here are the details:

Click here for the Bath & Body Works store locator

Click here for the Bath & Body Works printable coupon

  • Discount: $10 off 30 | $20 off $50 | $45 off $100
  • Expires: 31st August 2014

$45 off $100 is a really fantastic discount amount!

I can’t write very much in this blog post as it is an in-store offer. And as the online offers differ from the in-store offers, as well as the US offers differing from the Canadian offers, then I cannot state which are the best deals with which to pair this printable coupon.

I do love the smell of the B&BW 3 wick candles and these also make excellent emergency gifts too. Perhaps throw a few of those in your shopping cart.

If you pop in-store to use this Bath & Body Works printable coupon today, please let us know how you get on!

Babybjorn Active Front Baby Carrier Was $180 Now Only $80 @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on August 31, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Babybjorn Active Front Baby Carrier Was $180 Now Only $80 @ Best Buy Canada

For those of you with young babies, or perhaps expecting one to arrive soon, consider the deal on this Babybjorn Active Front Baby Carrier in black. Originally priced at $179.99, best Buy has reduced the price by $100 down to only $79.99. And as that is over the minimum threshold, you’ll also get free shipping to your home.

Here on Bargainmoose, we’ve seen similar BabyBjorn carriers drop to around this price, this is almost as low as I have seen them go. Price comparing this particular model elsewhere, they’re selling the same thing for $180 on Snugglebugz, $180 on TJsKids, $90 for the alternate colour choice at SafetySuperstore. Now would be a good time to buy this from Best Buy Canada.

A bit about this carrier:

The BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Active is a sturdy baby carrier, perfect for parents on the go who want to be able to carry baby for longer periods of time.

Baby Wearing is becoming a heck of a lot more popular nowadays. I often see men and women walking round sporting BabyBjorn carriers… and I am even seeing many more people with baby slings now too.

I can recommend this type of baby carrier, I have almost the same BabyBjorn one – I think the only difference with mine is the colour. For my first baby, I used it A LOT when out and about, it was incredibly useful. However, my second baby was a bit heavier and chunkier, and she just didn’t feel as comfortable in the carrier so I found that I used it a little less the second time round.

I will say that these style of Baby Bjorn carriers aren’t amazing for everyone. A friend of mine couldn’t really use it, she found that this particular style of baby carrier just did not agree with her lower back. I had no trouble whatsoever in that regard. We’re all just different shapes and sizes, so this BabyBjorn carrier is probably not going to be ideal for everyone. As for my friend, she ended up using the sling style carrier without a hitch.

Brave Leather: 40% Bag Sale & Extra 10% Coupon Code & Free Shipping!

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Brave Leather: 40% Bag Sale & Extra 10% Coupon Code & Free Shipping!

Hands up – who likes the smell of leather bags!? Me, me! I do! There are quite a few deals to get my nose into over at Brave Leather – the Canadian store specialising in various leather products. Just now, they’re offering 40% discount on their range of leather bags, with some very nice offers. But what’s even better, is that you can score an extra 10% off those already reduced sale prices too.

In the past, Eva mentioned a 10% coupon code for Brave Leather which we also still have on our forums here. On the off-chance, I tested it on some sale items to see if it worked, and it did! This 10% coupon code makes the sale items even hotter. Just use the BraveLeather coupon code BRAVE2014 when you are placing your order.

I think we all know that real leather articles are NOT cheap to buy. So when sales like this come along, it’s worth a hunt for a deal. Prices of the leather bags in the Brave Leather sale section start at $114 or $102.60 with the coupon above. That particular price relates to the Umlah clutch which you can buy in either silver or gold, and it was originally priced at $190. I’ve just realised… I don’t own one single clutch bag! They’ve never appealed to me, I’ve never had the need for one.

The Inigo would be more my style, it’s a cross-body bag and it was originally priced at $198. You can pick one up right now for only $106.20.It sounds lovely:

Made of a buttery soft Italian leather with a fully lined interior. Hair-on leather leopard print pocket.

But alas, there’s no way I can justify any more bag shopping for quite a while… just this morning, I blew $100 on a purple leather over-shoulder bag… it was gorgeous though, I had to do it. I haven’t bought a bag in 3 months… I needed another!

Shipping!

Any order of $100 or more at the Brave Leather online store will automatically receive free ground shipping. Yay! That means that everything in the 40% bag sale will definitely get free shipping.

15.6″ Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop: Save $200, Only $499 @ BestBuy / FutureShop

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 1:00 PM

15.6 Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop: Save $200, Only $499 @ BestBuy / FutureShop

If you’re on the hunt for a reasonable priced laptop, consider the deal on this 15.6″ Dell Inspiron 15 – there’s a $200 saving on it right now if you’re buying from either Best Buy or Future Shop. Down from $699.99, you can pick up this Dell laptop for only $499.99.

The above Dell Inspiron laptop comes with free shipping from either of those stores.

As for the specification, I’ll highlight a few of the more important facts:

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4210U   (1.7 GHz)
  • Hard Drive: 1 TB
  • RAM: 8 GB DDR3
  • Native Screen Resolution: 1366 x 768
  • OS: Windows 8.1 (64-Bit)

Very good price for an i5 machine!

Just note that this laptop doesn’t have a disc drive… but who needs one of those, these days?

If you are buying this Dell laptop, it doesn’t make much difference as to which store from which you make your purchase. However, if you are buying from FutureShop, the sites offers you a few bundle deals which you might want to add on to your purchase, such as:

Just add those to your cart along with the laptop, for the bundle pricing.

From what I can see, this is the 5000 series of Dell Inspiron laptops. Their basic one with a similar (identical?) specification – the price starts at $579.99 on the Dell website itself, so it’s definitely a much better price to buy through Best Buy or FutureShop.

Perhaps if you are about to head back to school or university, or have a family member who is, this could be an ideal study aid, in a pretty decent price range.

Kobalt Sliding Compound Miter Saw Was $150 Now $100 (Potentially $90) @ Lowes.ca & Free Shipping

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Kobalt Sliding Compound Miter Saw Was $150 Now $100 (Potentially $90) @ Lowes.ca & Free Shipping

This weekend, there’s a bit of a deal on this Kobalt 7 1/4-in 9-Amp Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser Guide, online @ Lowes Canada. Originally priced at $149, it’s now only $99, and that’s with free shipping too.

If you’ve never before shopped at Lowes.ca online, then you can make the above price even better. Sign up to the email newsletter there and they will email you a $10 coupon code for a $50 spend.  You need to use that coupon code within a week and it should work on the above Kobalt saw.

In case you were not aware, Kobalt is Lowes own brand of tools, so it’s not really possible for me to price compare this exact model at any other Canadian online stores. I can show you similar branded items though, such as this Makita which is $550 on Amazon.ca! Another Makita is $712 here on BlackRockTools. There’s a cheaper Ryobi for $141 here on HomeDepot, that’s probably more along the lines of this Kobalt model.

Obviously for this price, you’re not going to get a heavy duty machine capable of working day in, day out, on construction sites… but for basic home DIY use, this might do the job. It’s a 7 and a quarter inch blade, so it’s not a huge saw for any large cutting jobs. You can get miter saws with larger blade capabilities, but obviously you’d be paying more for bigger and better models.

There are 96 reviews on this particular saw on the Lowes website, with exactly half of them giving this Kobalt miter saw a 5 star rating. The top review from Chris states this:

I built a deck this summer and solely used this saw for it. It had no issues cutting 4x4s, 2x6s and deck boards.

That sounds ideal! I would love my partner to build us a deck in the garden. If only…

On the whole, the reviews on this particular unit are very positive, and it seems ideal for home use… regardless if it looks like something out of Robot Wars.

Samsung 27” Widescreen LED Monitor: Was $330 now $200 @ NCIX Canada & Free Shipping

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 11:06 AM

Samsung 27” Widescreen LED Monitor: Was $330 now $200 @ NCIX Canada & Free Shipping

There’s a fantastic price on this Samsung S27D390HS 27in Widescreen PLS LED Monitor over on NCIX Canada right now! It was originally priced at $329.99, it’s down by $130 to only $199.99 and that comes with free ground shipping too!

Here are some quick details about the more important aspects of the specifications, taken from here:

  • Screen size: 27”
  • Contrast Ratio: 1000:1
  • Response Time: 5ms
  • Brightness: 300cd/m2
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1080

This Samsung monitor is compatible with Windows or Mac, even compatible with Windows 8.1.

Price Comparison:

Everywhere else online seems to be offering this Samsung S27D390HS for quite a bit more in price. In ascending order: $285 @ BestDirect, $287 @ DirectCanada, $330 @ DirectDial, $330 @ Newegg, $330 @ The Source, $365 @ OfficeMax, $366 @ FrontierPC, $372 @ Amazon. So as you can see, it’s a super price on NCIX.

Reviews:

I’ve never actually experienced Samsung electronics in terms of monitors. Since I bought my first PC when I was about 19, I’ve only ever had Viewsonic and Dell monitors, so I don’t have any personal experience of the Samsung brand. Have you? Please comment below if so!

I googled for reviews of the S27D390HS monitor and there are a few sites which can tell you a lot more about this item. One here on Digitaltrends scores the monitor with a 4 out of 5. There are many more customer reviews here on Amazon.com and you can read some personal comments too, such as:

I’m giving this 5 stars, because it’s awesome.

There are a few concerns about the stability of the base, with people saying it’s a bit flimsy for a 27” monitor. Keep that in mind… my partner has his monitors mounted on his desk on extendable arms, so if you plan on doing that, then the stability of the base wouldn’t be an issue at all.

Fjallravencanada: Extra 25% Off Sales Items & Extra $10 Discount For New Customers!

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Fjallravencanada: Extra 25% Off Sales Items & Extra $10 Discount For New Customers!

This weekend, you can get an extra 25% discount on select summer clothing and accessories in the sale section at FjallRaven Canada. That’s quite handy… but there’s also a great $10 coupon code with no minimum spend which applies to sale items! This double discount deal can be used by new customers for this store.

In this post, Avigayil wrote about the $10 coupon code which you can get for signing up to email updates from Fjallraven Canada, to be used on your first order. It turns out that the coupon code is generic and can be used by anyone – apply the Fjallraven coupon code FJCAN-SS14-10  to your shopping cart. Just note that you must be signed in to an account to see the discount appear – if you’re not signed in, there will be an error message and you won’t get to see the discount. This is what you will see:

Fjallravencanada: Extra 25% Off Sales Items & Extra $10 Discount For New Customers!

There is not a huge amount of items in the sale section at Fjall Raven, only 16 to choose from… but have a look and see if there’s anything you like.

One of the lowest priced items in the sale section is this Fjallraven Övik Flat Cap which was originally priced at $39.99. The sale price on this is $29.99, but it would be only $19.99 if this was the item to which you decide to apply the $10 coupon code.

This is exactly the type of hat I like to wear in the summer sun – the Abisko Summer Hat. It was originally priced at $64.99, it’s down to $48.75, but it would be $38.75 when you add the coupon code. I have a hat that’s almost identical to this one… just another brand name.

Canadian Shipping

Sadly, shipping isn’t free on any order –you must spend a minimum of $75 to get free shipping to your home. That minimum threshold isn’t incredibly high though, that’s achievable.  If your order is lower than $75, the shipping fee is a flat rate of $15. It might make sense for some items…. For example, the flat cap which I mentioned above – if you’re buying it alone, then you’d get it for ~$35 including shipping to your home.

Villeroy-Boch Coupon Code: 25% Discount Site-Wide!

Posted by on August 29, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Villeroy Boch Coupon Code: 25% Discount Site Wide!

Villeroy and Boch, the world-famous ceramics & homeware brand, has released a 25% discount code for a few days only. It’s rare to get a coupon code for Villeroy & Boch, so that’s why I am choosing to blog this one on Bargainmoose. Here is the information:

Click here to use the Villeroy & Boch coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: VBSTYLE25
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expires: 1st September 2014

Hit up the sales section to see the bargains first. There are a few sale events happening, such as the Labor Day event or the Last Chance Outlet.

I tested the coupon code out on a few items and it DID apply an extra discount, but I think a few brands must be excluded. For example, this Victor 36 piece flatware Set which was $240 and is now down to only $99 – the coupon code doesn’t give any further discount, that’s the final price.

Some other items for you to see:

Dune Collection – this tableware set is on clearance sale, with items starting at only $4.49 after the coupon code.

There are some very funky items too – such as this set of Premium Bone Porcelain – the NewWave Premium Platinum 5 piece place set for $145.99 or $109.45 after the coupon code.

Have a glance at the designer coffee mugs here, some of which I have pictured in the image above. With the odd shape of these coffee sets they might be more suited to restaurants and cafes… I am not 100% sure if they’d be suitable for everyday use in your home!

Canadian Shipping

Shipping is only free on orders of $250 or more. Even though that minimum spend threshold is quite high, as this is a premium brand – it’s likely that if you are shopping there that you’re going to be placing a large order anyway. If your order is smaller than $250, then the shipping fee is a flat rate:

  • Orders up to $149.99 – shipping is $20
  • Orders of $150 to $249.99 – shipping is $25

Keep that in mind when ordering.

About

I was reading the Villeroy & Boch about page, and was quite astounded by both the fact that they are 260 years old and at some of their comments:

Its tiles line the Holland Tunnel. Its dinnerware sets the tables of the Pope.

Wow!

Remember, if you’re ever shopping online at Villeroy and Boch Canada, check out our coupon page before you shop!

DC Shoes Men’s Trainers From Only $16.79 & Free Shipping! (US)

Right now, you can save up to 70% in the sale section at the DC Shoes online store. And for a few days only, there’s a coupon code for a further discount – an extra 30% off. Here are the details:

Click here to use the DC Shoes coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: LABORDAY30
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expires: 1st September 2014

There are a ton of items to choose from in the sale section, and all come with FREE Canadian shipping, which is a really great bonus.

As per the headliner on this blog post, the shoes I have pictured above are the ones you can purchase for only $16.79 once you apply the coupon code. They’re the Men’s Court Graffik Shoes (Color: WHITE/BLACK/WHITE wbi) and they were originally priced at $59.99. These particular trainers are only available in size 8 though, so that’s quite restrictive. Here’s a quick screenshot of that price:

DC Shoes Men’s Trainers From Only $16.79 & Free Shipping! (US)

They’re the best bargain I can find… but there are still more good prices for only a few dollars more.

For example, there’s a lot more sizing choice in the exact same shoes in other colours. If you go for the colour WHITE/ARMOR/WHITE (waw) which are priced at $29.99, they come down to only $20.99. These are available in sizes 8 to 11.

For a different shoe altogether, these Men’s Villain Tx Shoes are only $15.75 after the coupon code, but again, only available in a size 9.

It’s worth a really good browse through the sale shoes to find the best deals in your size. I’ve focussed this post on men’s trainers, but you can just as easily have a browse in the ladies or kids section.

Shipping & Fees

Even though DC Shoes ship from the US, you don’t have to pay any shipping costs whatsoever. If your shopping cart is less than $20, there won’t be any additional customs or duties at your door. Also, with the NAFTA agreement, you don’t pay any duties on US made items. The DC Shoes site doesn’t state which items this applies to though, so there’s a teeny chance that you may have to pay an extra couple of bucks at your door, if you’re unlucky! Please tell us in the comments below if you’ve ordered from DC Shoes before and how it went.

There are a ton of great deals on there just now, I could spend hours browsing the site! Some quick examples:

Early Access: Women’s shoes Up to 80% Off – prices here start at ~$36 but go up and up! I love these Bailey Lace-Back High Sandal but they’re $438. Eeek! They’re a bit out of my price-comfort zone.

7 for All Mankind sale – items here starting from only $49 such as this Speckled Pocket T-Shirt.

Llum: Up to 65% Off – baby and kids clothing and fashion! ZOMG I can barely even even look at this section, I would just spend a fortune. I’m thinking of this Peggy Dress ($36.46) for my daughter for Christmas Day.

There are some beautiful items in the 808 Home: Furniture, Bedding & Décor sale. The pieces are very simple, stylish and modern. I like this Curved Floor Lamp but it’s $564… it’s more likely that I can afford this Mr Fox mug for $12.57.

As this is a free shipping no minimum event, it probably makes the most sense for you to take advantage of it on the smaller lower value items, upon which you would have previously had to pay $9.95 shipping.
