It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like… Boxing Day!!

Posted by on December 22, 2014 at 4:00 PM

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like… Boxing Day!!

We’re only a few days away from the biggest Canadian shopping day of the year – at least according to Bargainmoose statistics from previous years! Yes, it’s almost Christmas, meaning Boxing Day is not far behind. And the Boxing Day sales are starting to get into full swing. I am sure most of you already know about our amazing Bargainmoose Boxing Day deals dashboard, which we are constantly updating with all the latest offers as and when they are released.

When you are browsing the Bargainmoose blog, you can easily get to the Boxing Day dashboard by hitting that “see deals now” button under the countdown, at the top right of the site.

On the Boxing Day sales dashboard, our deal-hunting elves are finding all the Canadian Boxing Day deals and flyers, and posting up all the best information for your viewing pleasure. We’ve already posted hundreds of deals on there, and there are thousands more to come.

We’re highlighting some of the most popular stores on there such as Walmart and Amazon, but you can find the Boxing Day sales information from many smaller Canadian boutiques and stores too. If you click the link to View All Boxing Day Sales at the top of the dashboard, you will see a list of every single store that has a currently active Boxing day deal or flyer. I’d highly recommend stopping by that page on Boxing Day to see what you can see!

But there’s already quite a bit of information available, such as the online start dates and times of many of the popular stores. For example:

  • Walmart.ca – Boxing Day starts online @ noon EST on the 24th December 2014
  • Best Buy – Boxing Day starts online @ 8PM EST on the 24th December 2014
  • Future Shop – Boxing Day starts online @ 8PM EST on the 24th December 2014
  • The Source – Boxing Day starts online @ 8PM EST on the 24th December 2014
  • Chapters – Boxing Day starts online on the 25th December 2014
  • The Bay – Boxing Day starts online on the 25th December 2014 @ 12AM EST

We’ve also got flyers for many of the above stores, some of which we’ve already blogged about and all of which you will find on our Boxing Day dashboard.

Note to newsletter subscribers: if you wait and read the Bargainmoose daily newsletter each and every day, you’re going to miss out on some hot deals! In the last few weeks, the team has been finding deals that last only minutes, so you need to check in on the Bargainmoose blog many times throughout the day.

What store are you planning on buying from this these Boxing Day sales?

Happy shopping!

(PC Game) Watch Dogs Was $60 Now Only $30 @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on December 22, 2014 at 6:16 AM

(PC Game) Watch Dogs Was $60 Now Only $30 @ Amazon.ca!

Oh Amazon… how you tempt me, with all your glorious deals on coveted items! Such as this deal today – they are offering the PC standard edition of the Watch Dogs video game for half price – it’s only $30 with free shipping.

In price comparing, this seems to be an excellent deal from Amazon just now. Watch Dogs for the PC is priced a lot higher elsewhere: $60 @ Best Buy, $60 @ Walmart, $60 @ Future Shop, $55 @ Staples, $60 @ Newegg, $60 @ NCIX, $60 @ London Drugs, $60 @ Dell. So even pre-empting any amazing Boxing Day deals, the current Amazon price might not be beaten.

If you want this game in time for Christmas, there is still a chance you can get it. You could sign up to a free trial of Amazon Prime, and the cut-off date for Christmas deliveries is today!

As for the game itself, it scores a Metascore of 77 on Metacritic, my go-to source for video game rankings. The user score was much lower though, at only 46. It’s not often you see such a disparity between the critics’ score and the users’ score on Metacritic. It is true that when Watch Dogs launched, it was plagued by lots of performance issues, which have supposedly been fixed now. But that could well have had a detrimental effect on the initial scoring. Keep that in mind!

Reviewers on Amazon.ca are few and far between, but there are a lot more reviews and ratings on the dot com to look at. The game only averaged a score of 3/5 there. One comment made sense:

Seems to be rushed into release. Poor performance even on high end pc.

I think we get that with many games these days… there are deadlines set for release, things get rushed at the end and there can be issues based on that. There are quite a few positives too though, such as:

Doesn’t re-invent the genre, but is a blast to play.

Ever since I saw the viral video which was released to promote Watch Dogs, I was interested in playing it too. In this viral marketing stunt, they were offering an app to change people’s lives… Here’s the video I mean:

Enjoy!

Best Buy Boxing Day Flyer Released! (Sales On 24-28 Dec 2014)

Posted by on December 21, 2014 at 7:50 AM

Best Buy Boxing Day Flyer Released! (Sales On 24 28 Dec 2014)

Yesterday I wrote about a short-lived deal where you could get $25 off $100 online @ BestBuy. It didn’t last for long so I hope some of you got in on the action. If you did not, perhaps you’ll be interested in the Boxing Day sales flyer which they have just released!!

The flyer deals aren’t yet available online – the official sale is due to start at 8PM EST on the 24th of December 2014. So, if you’re interested in bagging the bargains early, make sure you are online for the start of the sale.

If you’re going to brave the Boxing sales in-store, you’ll want to be there at 6am (!) on the 26th. I’m afraid I will probably have a little too much wine in my system to be out and about that that hour of the day.

Anyway, there are a lot of deals in this 39 page flyer, so have a read of it yourself. As usual here on Bargainmoose, we like to highlight a few of the items to show you how good or bad the deals actually are.

Sony 60″ 1080p LED Smart TV (KDL60R510B) – was $1399.99 will be $999.99 – This HUGE TV will be reduced by a further $400 on the marked price just now. I cannot seem to find the exact model on their site just now, I can only see the model ending in A, so they might update that before the actual sale. The web code shows this TV, so it could be that model and just a typo in the flyer. This TV is around $1300 everywhere else.

HP 15.6″ Touchscreen Laptop – was $699.99 will be $449.99 – This looks like a pretty decent little laptop for the price. Spec wise, it’s a AMD Quad-Core A8-6410 APU processor with 8GB of RAM. It has a 750GB hard drive, which should be pretty good for home use.

For those who are more of the Apple persuasion, there’s a silver Apple 13.3″ MacBook Air on offer – down from $1199.99 and it will be $999.99. I’m a PC girl so my knowledge on Macs is slightly lacking, but from the spec I can see that this is a 1.3GHz dual core Intel Core i5 processor and it also comes with 8GB of RAM. Similar in spec to the HP laptop I’ve mentioned above, but twice the price!!

For a slightly smaller TV, the Black LG 32″ 720p 60Hz LED TV (32LB520B) is now $299.99 and it will be dropping by a further $70 down to $229.99 with free shipping. Shweet price for a little TV! I remember 15 years ago when a 32” TV was considered to be a fairly large TV… but not any more! This LG TV only seems to be sold by Future Shop and Best Buy, I cannot see it priced anywhere else.

Remember, I’ve price compared all of the above deals as of TODAY. Competitors prices are going to change over the course of the Boxing Day sales, so make sure you price compare again, if you are actually buying anything.

Here are a few of the first pages of the flyer, but you can see them all here.

Posted by on December 20, 2014 at 11:35 AM

FREEBIE: 2L Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale via Websaver.ca!

Quick! You can order a free coupon right now on Websaver.ca which entitles you to get a free two litre bottle of Schweppes dark ginger ale!

The ginger ale offer is right in the middle of their home page, I cannot link directly to it but you should see it there:

FREEBIE: 2L Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale via Websaver.ca!

There is probably a limited number of the free coupons available, so get in fast and place your order. When you claim the coupon on Websaver.ca, they will mail it out to your home. Then, you can use the coupon at your preferred grocery store that stocks Schweppes dark ginger ale and claim it for free!

I used to love ginger ale and I’d have drunk it all the time, at least once per day. But since my last pregnancy, I now find that drinking ginger ale gives me terrible heartburn.

Inflatable Wings Only $1 & Free Shipping @ Walmart Canada!

Posted by on December 20, 2014 at 10:29 AM

Inflatable Wings Only $1 & Free Shipping @ Walmart Canada!

Once again, the hot prices on weird and wonderful items in the Walmart clearance section have inspired me to write a blog post. Today, I’ve spotted these Inflatable Demon Wings (top left) or Devil Wings (top right) for only $1 including free shipping!

I actually spotted the devil wings in the clearance section at Walmart a few days ago. At that time, they were priced at $2.50 and I was considering blogging them but I changed my mind. But now, I’ve spotted that they have dropped in price to only a DOLLAR with free shipping – so I must blog them up now! What a bargain!

At this price, I do not think this deal will last very long. If you’re interested – buy now! These would be a superb item to put away until next Halloween. Now, that’s advanced preparation.

The costumes shown on the Walmart site are pretty basic – the wings are paired with some basic black outfits. But you can use your imagination to make some more wild and wacky outfits to go with your new inflatable wings. They could also be used all year round – I’ve often been to costume parties which are not actually on Halloween.

I googled for demon costume ideas, and there are so many to choose from. So, I am sure you can use the likes of google and pinterest to add details to an outfit, in pairing it with these wings.

Best Buy Canada: Get $25 off $100+ Spend! QUICK, HOT!!! (EXPIRED!)

Posted by on December 20, 2014 at 10:06 AM

Here’s a hot promo which doesn’t seem to be advertised on Best Buy’s site, but you can see it when you pop something in your cart. Order merchandise of $100 or more, and you will be able to choose either a free $25 gift card or $25 online credit!

The $25 online credit can clearly be seen in your shopping cart as you can see from my screenshot below:

Best Buy Canada: Get $25 off $100+ Spend! QUICK, HOT!!! (EXPIRED!)

If you want to make sure that this is not an error and you want to get your goodies as soon as possible, place your order online and set it to “collect at store.” Nip in-store, pick up your items, and voila!

The $25 free credit seems to be applicable to full priced items and sale priced items too, I am not sure of any exclusions.

As an example, I added the Sphero 2 to my cart, which is $109.99. It comes down to only $84.99! In price comparing elsewhere, I can see that this item is $110+ everywhere else.

The $25 off $100 also seems to apply to gift cards, which is more than likely an error. If you want to make sure that there’s some chance of Best Buy actually honouring an order you’ve placed, don’t order gift cards. You’d be better ordering products and seeing if they accept your orders. You can always try it on gift cards if you like, it’s not costing you anything – but in my opinion, they’re more than likely to cancel those orders. Gift card example:

Best Buy Canada: Get $25 off $100+ Spend! QUICK, HOT!!! (EXPIRED!)

This $25 off $100 makes many items on Best Buy to be really hot deals!

NCIX Canada: Boxing Day Flyer Out Now & Prices Live On 24th Dec 2014

Posted by on December 20, 2014 at 10:00 AM

NCIX Canada: Boxing Day Flyer Out Now & Prices Live On 24th Dec 2014

NCIX, the popular Canadian electronics and computer retailer, has just released their Boxing Day flyer and we’ve got a copy up on our Boxing Day deals forums!

The actual time and date of the start of the NCIX Boxing Day sale is the 24th December 2014, at 4.30PM PST – mark it in your calendars or set a reminder on your phone. There are only 5 pages in the flyer so I am sure that there will be more deals available on the day, they just cannot squeeze them all in to the flyer. The flyer shows us a synopsis of the best Boxing Day bargains.

If there was something in particular you were looking for, perhaps a new computer or a big-screen TV, it’s an absolutely great idea to get researching now. Take this Boxing Day flyer from NCIX, see if there’s anything that you like, and price compare elsewhere. Then you will be fore-armed with knowledge as to the best deals and where to spend your hard-earned cash.

We cannot write about every single item in this blog post, but here are a few of the highlights.

LG 47” 1080p 120Hz smart LED TV was $698 will be $548 – I’m not sure which exact model it will be as the flyer doesn’t say, but I’ve linked to the 2 LG TVs that fit into that category. Both are $698 so $549 will be a great price. If it’s the 47LB5830, the lowest price elsewhere for it is $687 anyway. And the lowest price for the 47LB6100 is $699. This is one of the flyer headliners so there may not be many in stock. If you are interested, I’d plan to be online the instant the NCIX sale commences.

Logitech Harmony Ultimate One Universal Remote Control was $248 will be $148 – this remote control is $250+ everywhere else, so it’s a super price. They may not have many of this one either – get in early to secure your bargains.

Sennheiser HD558 Headphones were $279.99 will be $139.99 – these bad boys aren’t sold at many stores and the cheapest I have seen this model in the past was $159.99. You can pick them up for $180 @ Amazon just now, but the NCIX price of $140 in their Boxing sales is much better. I want Sennheisers!

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse was $79.99… and the price is too low to show on the flyer! Just now, it’s priced at $59.99 on site, so I’d expect it to be at least lower than that. We’ll check back on the day in question to see the price on that.

There are tons more items in the NCIX Boxing sales, click through and check it out.

As for shipping from NCIX, it depends on what you are buying. Some items have free shipping, some don’t, but you can see this on the individual product pages once the Boxing Day sales starts. Also, there is supposed to be free shipping on orders over $50.

Here’s the full flyer:

SUPER HOT! Crayola Digital Light Designer Only $10 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! Quick! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 6:02 AM

SUPER HOT! Crayola Digital Light Designer Only $10 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! Quick! (EXPIRED)

While browsing Walmart for new clearance items first thing this morning, I spotted a deal on this Crayola Digital Light Designer. It looked like a mediocre deal, being just half price as marked on the Walmart site. But upon doing a price comparison, I saw that this was a much hotter price than expected – I’ll explain this below. Right now, you can click through to Walmart and pick up one of these for only $10 with free shipping.

As we’ve seen in the last few weeks, hot sale items on clearance at Walmart can sometimes sell out within minutes – if you are interested in this Crayola Digital Light Designer, buy it NOW and think later.

Why I think this is such a hot deal – let’s look at the prices elsewhere.

  • $49.99 @ Amazon.ca
  • $34.98 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $39.99 @ Sears
  • $47.95 @ Mastermind Toys
  • $30 @ London Drugs
  • $95 @ Newegg.ca

See!? The Walmart price is fabulous. If you want to know if it will be at your door in time for Christmas, pop the item in your shopping cart and add your postcode and Walmart shows you the estimated delivery date.

If you want to know a bit more about this Crayola toy, here’s a little video.

It’s cute! I would have loved one of these when I was a young child. I simply adore all things Crayola.

Shoe Lovers Rewards: Totally Free Shipping From Shoe Warehouse, Town Shoes, The Shoe Company Etc

Posted by on December 14, 2014 at 10:34 AM

Shoe Lovers Rewards: Totally Free Shipping From Shoe Warehouse, Town Shoes, The Shoe Company Etc

Shoe Lovers Rewards is the loyalty program from the Town Shoes group, which includes The Shoe Company and The Shoe Warehouse, brands with which I am sure you are familiar. You can sign up to Shoe Lovers rewards for free, and in return, there are a number of perks. First and foremost, it means you get to totally free shipping with no minimum required from all their sites!

As an example to show you the free shipping deal, I had a pair of these sale shoes in my shopping cart – the men’s Wilson Velcro Wide Wm 10290V-01 which were down from $49.99 to $29.98. After signing up to the Shoe Lovers rewards and proceeding through checkout, it showed zero cost on the expedited shipping fees. Nice!

A secondary bonus of the Shoe Lover rewards program is that you also can stock up on “shoe lover points” when you join and place orders. By joining, you automatically get 500 free points, then more points as you place orders. For every 2000 points you collect, you get a $10 reward certificate to use in-store. And then once you accumulate 6000 points, you become a Shoe Lover VIP which then entitles you to further perks, such as VIP in-store events, and a higher amount of points per dollar spent.

Here are some more deals to get your teeth into, sourced from the various companies across the range:

For Women

For Men

For Kids

If you’re interested, have a good browse through the sale sections on the various sites. There’s a lot to choose from with quite good sizing availability too. As it’s free to sign up to the Shoe Lovers Rewards, you might as well take advantage of the free shipping while you can!

PROSCAN 7″ Tablet (Case & Keyboard) Was $64 Now $48 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 14, 2014 at 9:15 AM

PROSCAN 7 Tablet (Case & Keyboard) Was $64 Now $48 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (EXPIRED)

If you’ve been on the lookout for a budget tablet that won’t break the bank, you could consider this clearance deal from Walmart.ca. The PROSCAN 7″ Android 4.1 Tablet with Case & Keyboard (PLT7-K) was previously priced at $64 and it’s now down to only $48 with free shipping.

As you can probably tell from the price point, the PROSCAN 7″ PLT7-K Android 4.1 Tablet is not going to be the most powerful and amazing device in the world. You DO pay for what you get in this type of thing, but if you really only need something basic, this is definitely one to consider.

As for the specification itself, here are a few of the important points:

  • 7” capacitive multi touch display with case and keyboard kit
  • 800 x 480 pixels resolution
  • Up to 1.2GHz processor
  • Android 4.1 Jellybean operating system
  • Camera & rechargeable battery built-in
  • 4GB NAND Flash and expandable up to 32GB via memory card

You can see that it’s not terribly powerful and doesn’t actually come with a lot of in-built memory to start with. But, it is expandable with a memory card, which you can pick up at a low cost these days.

Ideas for things you could use this Proscan tablet for:

  • For young kids to play basic games like Angry Birds / Candy Crush
  • For long car trips, entertaining the kids
  • Cheap multi-media device for using round the home
  • Using for basic social functions, such as emails, Facebook, etc

It’s really not comparable to an iPad Air or anything like that, but it’s just a basic tablet for some basic functions.

One thing you might want to note is that it’s not compatible with Google Play, so you cannot download any apps from there. The choice in apps might be a little limited, as this reviewer stated:

NOT Google Licensed for downloads… You cannot download any aps from Google Play… Your options are very limited.

Take that into account if you’re buying.

To be honest, this would be the type of thing I’d buy for my little 4 year old daughter, but I’d give her a strict time limit on usage of the games, etc. I don’t want her to get screen addiction too young!

Sammydress (US) Funky Accessories – All With Free Canadian Shipping!

Posted by on December 13, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Sammydress (US) Funky Accessories – All With Free Canadian Shipping!

A few weeks ago, Avigayil introduced me to a US based site called Sammydress. They’re kind of like a huge warehouse full of fashion and accessory items, with really great prices. And what’s even sweeter is that they have a section in which everything comes with totally free shipping, no minimum order required!

The free shipping section has loads of items in there, over 167 pages of it. And what is a little bit sweeter too, is that there is a 10% coupon code which also applies as well as the free shipping.

  • Coupon Code: XMAS2014
  • Discount: 10% off any order
  • Expires: 26th December 2014

I just want to highlight a few items with free shipping that caught my eye.

I’ve pictured this item to the top left – isn’t it funky! I’d wear this hairpin myself, and not just on Halloween. You could wear this hairpin any time of year.

Would you wear this ring? It’s a little freaky! It’s a great budget piece of costume jewellery though. I’ve pictured it in the top middle.

And the candy bracelet is pictured at the top right. I really love the colour scheme on this one.

(In the image above, bottom left) This looks like quite a good colour scheme for eye shadow, these are really my colours. I love the deep purple.

This one is pictured above, bottom middle. Would you wear it?

Lastly, this one is pictured at the bottom left in the image above. Very pretty scarf and it’s a steal for just over five bucks!

There really are so many cute little items on there, it’s worth a browse.

Regarding customs and duties, as long as your order is under $20CA, you don’t have to worry about any extra fees. I am not 100% sure that if you order now, you will get your items in time for Christmas – I wouldn’t bank on that.

DIY Frozen Christmas Ornaments!

Posted by on December 13, 2014 at 12:00 PM

DIY Frozen Christmas Ornaments!

I’m a fan of Pinterest; the site that can make you both horribly excited about crafting and feel horribly inadequate at the same time when your projects FAIL. As I write this blog post, I’ve got some cakes in the oven in an attempt to make a rainbow cake, which has been splattered all over Pinterest for the last while.

While searching for some Christmas crafts, I spotted these DIY Frozen ornaments made by Nancy over on TwoSistersCrafting. She was on a mission to find some Frozen baubles at the store, but couldn’t find any. Nancy made her own from various empty baubles and craft supplies. They look really fabulous, as you can see in the pictures above and below.

Frozen is all the rage at the moment, it’s so popular! Just in case you missed it yesterday, I posted about this Disney Frozen MagiClip Flip ‘N Switch Castle and Anna Doll for $16 on Amazon.ca. The toy is still available, if you want to wrap it and put it under your Christmas Tree which is decorated in home-made Frozen baubles!

Air Canada GiftMassive Giveaway: Free Flights, or 10% to 20% Discount! *** HOT ***

Posted by on December 13, 2014 at 9:21 AM

Air Canada is having a GiftMassive giveaway! Within this promotion, they are giving away instant coupon codes for up to 20% discount on the cost of their flights, and also some free flights!

On the above page, you’ve got to pop in your email address as they will instantly email you a coupon code, or details of your prize. For example, when I first tried it, I got a 10% coupon code. They’re all one-time use coupon codes and not shareable. So if you want one, give it a try on the link above.

The prize breakdown is this:

  • 500,000 codes for 10% discount off any Air Canada Tango base
  • 350,000 codes for 15% discount any Air Canada Tango base
  • 150,000 codes for 20% discount off any Air Canada Tango base fare
  • 65 pairs of Economy Class round-trip tickets for the winner & travelling companion (Canada/US)

Here’s the type of thing you will see when you enter the giveaway on the Air Canada page:

Air Canada GiftMassive Giveaway: Free Flights, or 10% to 20% Discount! *** HOT ***

Once you have chosen your prize as shown in the screenshot above, here’s a little glitch that seems to be happening. If you take the base URL:

And have a little fiddle with the number at the end (change it to different numbers), different codes and prize combos seem to appear. I found a 20% code with this:

Air Canada GiftMassive Giveaway: Free Flights, or 10% to 20% Discount! *** HOT ***

Now Moosers, you’ve got to be savvy shoppers here. Just because Air Canada are handing you a 10% or 15% coupon code doesn’t necessarily mean that this is the best price you can get for your flight. If you have a set trip in mind, you’re going to want to head over to Google Flights and compare the exact same flights and dates to those on Air Canada’s website. In some cases, there may be no benefit to using the Air Canada coupon codes, you may be better booking through Google Flights – so make sure you check it out.

I did just this when I was checking out some prices for a flight between Winnipeg and Toronto in January. It turns out that using the above 20% code ended up saving me $80 – so that was well worth it.

If you are interested in using this deal, get in fast before Air Canada discovers their mistake.

Roots Canada: Find Buddy For A Discount (Free Shipping, No Min!)

Posted by on December 13, 2014 at 8:24 AM

When I get on my computer on the mornings, I have a certain number of tabs that I load up on my browser, and Facebook is one of them. I usually update the Bargainmoose Facebook page in the mornings, and when I did, I spotted an intriguing status update from Roots Canada. They said:

Buddy the Beaver is hiding somewhere on Roots.com. Find him to get an exclusive offer, just for you.

Well, that being the clickbait that it was, made me instantly click through and start hunting! I clicked around for a few minutes, but I wasn’t seeing Buddy anywhere. Sometimes there can be issues with cookies on offers like this, so I tried it in another browser (firefox vs opera). No luck! I finally asked one of the other Moose authors to help me out, and Kristy found the beaver! Here’s what she found:

Click here to use the Roots Canada coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: IFOUNDBUDDYFS
  • Discount: Free shipping, no minimum
  • Expires: 14th December 2014

There are quite a few things which you can use this coupon code on, which are below the regular $50 free shipping threshold.

This Jordan PJ set for $30 is incredibly cute! Even though it’s for kids, I’d love one myself!

This Forest Fun t-shirt is down to only $9.88. And this particular one is in a multi-buy offer: buy 2 or more and get an additional 25% off that price. That could definitely be worth exploring.  For example, this Sporting Goods T-shirt is $12.88 so adding that to your cart as well, that would trigger the additional 25% discount, as you can see in the screenshot below:

Roots Canada: Find Buddy For A Discount (Free Shipping, No Min!)

As you can see, you can get both those tees for $17.07 with free shipping! Sizing is a bit limited, so have a good rummage around the sale section to see what you can see.

As for shipping, it’s usually only free from Roots Canada when you spend $50 or more, which is an easy minimum threshold to achieve. But this new coupon code means it’s easy to place smaller orders without incurring shipping.

Potential Extra Discount: $25 off $100?

I’ve had an idea about how to get $100 worth of items for $75, but I haven’t tested it yet. If you are placing an order on Roots.com, then I recommend you give this a try and tell us in the comments below if it works for you. Roots recently tweeted here about a deal on their gift cards – if you buy a $75 gift card, you get an extra $25 savings pass for you. But I was thinking, what’s to stop you buying the $75 gift card for yourself, getting the extra $25 savings pass too and applying them to the same order? Therefore, you’re getting $100 worth of items for $75.

Even if this doesn’t work, you would have been spending that amount anyway so you’re not going to lose anything by giving it a try. Let us know!
