Body Candy (US) Coupon Code: Free Shipping No Minimum

It has been ages since we have blogged about a good Body Candy deal so here it is folks: free shipping to Canada with no minimum!

Click here to shop @ Body Candy (US) now

  • Coupon Code: HALLOWEEN
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: 31st October 2014

There is a chance they might extend this coupon as they often do and we are right up against a weekend so there is hope. It might be worth trying out tomorrow just to check.

Usually, Body Candy requires a $19.99 US minimum for free shipping so this is a nice promotion on their part and one of their rarer coupons. As their body jewellery is so cheap, this is an excellent chance to pick up a little something for yourself without having to buy extra to reach the free shipping minimum.

I really want to get my naval pierced again. I loved having belly rings and my crop top wardrobe significantly expanded. In the $1.99 belly ring section, I found some great little rings. This White DICE Belly Ring has a retail value of $9.95 but only costs $1.99 at Body Candy. The two little dice are super cute. I could totally see wearing that to host a friendly poker game for my friends and me. The clear dice version is actually kind of creepy – I like!

I really like simplistic for daily wear, so this Stainless Steel CURVED Belly Ring Body Jewelry – 3/8″ for $1.99 (retails for $26.950 would be my choice as a daily basic ring. This would be perfect for sleeping in. It also looks easy to keep clean.

If you want to go totally wild, then pick out the Purple BEACHBALL HEDGEHOG Belly Button Ring. It looks like one of those old troll dolls with purple and white hair invaded your belly button for an overall funky affect. With a retail value of $29.95, you can purchase one for just $1.99.

All prices are in USD. All orders valued around $20 Canadian or less will not be hit with duty. I have ordered over that from this company before and not had any problems myself, as the package tends to be so small. I have also been super pleased with the quality of rings from them – their prices are incredible compared to my local ring places and the quality is on par.

For this and any future Body Candy coupon codes, please visit our forum.

Twice (US) Coupon Code: 40% Discount & No Duty/Taxes

For one day only, receive 40% off any order of excellent condition pre-loved goods at Twice Clothing (US) with the following coupon code TODAY only.

Click here to shop @ Twice Clothing (US) now

  • Coupon Code: CANDY40
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 31st October 2014 @ 11:50 PM PST

All items are final sale when you use this coupon code.

I blogged about Twice Clothing once before when they had an introductory 50% off coupon code for first time buyers. This coupon is multi-use so it can be applied towards numerous items and purchases. Yesterday, they had a 30% off coupon code but this one is 10% better!

When I first blogged about Twice clothing, I told Canadians why they should not mind shopping there. Those reasons still apply:

  • Twice covers the import duties / taxes
  • Free shipping to Canada on orders of $149+
  • Only $15 shipping on orders under $149

Twice Clothing is an online second-hand clothing store that sells only excellent condition clothing. They carry brand name and high end designer clothing at up to 90% off original prices. With this extra 40% off coupon code, you can score some serious deals.

I am actually looking for a mid-sized handbag. I want it to be black (or grey) and I want it to be my daily bag so it must have a shoulder strap and not be too ostentatious (in my books). This Coach Bag is a contender, Originally $400 it is priced at just $95.95 on Twice Clothing. After coupon code, it comes down to $57.57.

You can grab just some amazing deals during this sale. These Helmut Lang size 26 pants originally cost $225 and are on sale for $67.95. They appear even to have their tag still attached. After coupon code, pay just $40.77.

I wish the See By Chloe solid grey skirt was in my size as it would then be in my cart. The skirt will only cost you $29.97, a price I would gladly pay for the beauty.

These Tory Burch pants, size 4, are already 85% off. Originally $300 they are on sale for $39.95. After coupon code, they come down to $23.97. That is an outstanding price for designer pants. It is even better than I could find at Nordstrom’s Rack in the USA.

You will not want to miss these deals my dear Moosers!

P.S. I have found their website quite slow; I assume that is because people wanting great deals are flooding it. If it takes a bit to load, just have patience.

Globo Shoes: 75% Off K Studio Red Heels $9.98 & Free Shipping

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

Globo Shoes: 75% Off K Studio Red Heels $9.98 & Free Shipping

Is your budget rather tight this time of year? Have no fear, Globo shoes is here! Pick up this sexy pair of K Studio red shoes for just $9.98 (was $39.99) with free shipping.

This shoe has a medium heel measuring 3.25 inches according to the website even though it is in the 1.5 inch to 2.5 inch in section – odd. The heel is slender and taper for almost a stiletto look, though it is not quite high enough for that. I am somewhat doubting that 3.25 heel height though, just looking at the photos.

The K Studio shoe features a pointy toe that visually elongates your legs. The deep red features a high-shine for eye-catching shoes that will really accent your wardrobe. Pair these beauties with a little black dress or even a pair of black slacks for a night out on the town.

The red shoes are significantly cheaper than the same style of shoes in black. The black are on clearance for $29.97 whereas the red version is one-third the price. Currently, they are in stock in sizes six, seven, and eight. The shoes are made of synthetic materials, thus no leather bearing animals were harmed in the making of them.

While I would not suggest dancing the night away in these shoes (or they might be the shoes’ last night), these are a great little bargain buy to add to your wardrobe. Sometimes it is just really nice to be able to afford something pretty and new when your budget is tight and you do not have the money to spend on yourself. I know several women that once they have children seem to forget that they are still women as well as mothers. I think you still need to take care of yourself even if you are taking care of others.

What makes this deal so good, besides the 75% off price, is the free shipping. I assume free shipping ends tonight as it is the end of the month, but I do not know for sure. I suggest making your purchase sooner rather than waiting. Stock is probably limited as well. Free shipping saves you an extra $5. With this deal, that is half the price of the shoes!

There are other good deals in the clearance section, like this pair of Natural Soul Elle Boots I blogged about yesterday.

Consiglio’s Kitchenware: Sale on Cookware & More

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Consiglios Kitchenware: Sale on Cookware & More

Consiglio’s Kitchenware Canada is a hidden gem for cooks and bakers everywhere. They have some of the best prices on kitchenware you can find and they just started a sale with discounts on everything sitewide!

Now, this sale in and of itself makes for some good prices when compared with the competition. However, you can also use coupon code 5OFF for an additional 5% off your order as well!

I have been waiting for a sale from Consiglio’s for a while now as I have a certain frying pan on my wish list that matches the rest of my blooming kitchen set. This beautiful Le Creuset Caribbean Round Skillet 26cm was $135 for weeks on end as I have it on my Amazon wishlist, and it is now $130.94. After coupon code, the skillet comes down to just $124.39.

Allow me to show you what the competition is charging these days:

  • $175 @ The Bay Canada
  • $191.91 @ Amazon Canada
  • $169.99 @ Kitchen Niche Canada
  • $189.99 @ Gourmet Warehouse Canada

The pan also qualifies for free shipping as Consiglio’s offers free shipping on orders of $69.99 or more.

There are also some excellent deals you can find here that you will not find anywhere else. Check out Consiglio’s Premium Moka 9 Cup Espresso Maker for just $14.54, originally $29.10. You save 50% on this premium stovetop espresso maker for a low tech but great flavour alternative to pod espressos. This would make a nice gift for your unfriendly coffee addict and looks durable to survive a camping trip or two.

Back to my love affair with Le Creuset, this Flame Orange Kettle is a classic whistling kettle that lets you know exactly when your water is boiling. Unlike the silent electric kettles that let you forget that your water has boiled until hours later (and then you reboil the same water three times before making tea), this kettle will have you out of your seat in a second. It holds 1.6 L of water and is on sale for $72.74, which comes down to $69.10 after coupon.

I price compared the above kettle with a couple places. I found the white version for $150.50 at Hudson’s Bay and the orange version for $100 at Amazon Canada.

There are plenty of marvelous deals at Consiglio’s Kitchenware Canada. I cannot wait to order and get in my new skillet as our current frying pan is actually bent. I have no idea how you can flatten the side of a frying pan… but it happened!

Suasion Canada: $50 Dresses (Up to 76% Off) & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Suasion Canada: $50 Dresses (Up to 76% Off) & Free Shipping

Suasion Canada, a small boutique out of Victoria, has severely discounted a bunch of dresses. Originally well above $100 (and a few above $200), these dresses are now on sale for just $50 apiece. Sizes are limited but you will save up to 76% on these beauties.

Suasion also offers free shipping across Canada so your dress(es) will ship to your door free of charge.

Here is a list of most the dresses on sale and then I have concentrated on a couple of the ones with a larger size range at the bottom.

Between all the dresses on sale for $50, there is quite the size range available. There is at least one dress available in sizes XS through large. That is not bad for such a steep sale price.

The Line & Dot Griffith Cut Out Dress features a really bold cube inspired print in pink and black. I like the side cut-outs and how the hem is longer in the back then in the front. It really helps offset a large bottom. My personal favourite is the Boundary & Co. Griffin Dress because of the sharp angles on the bottom of the front. In addition, the back of that dress with its cutouts is just killer. The dress is a bit short for me but I would love to wear it.

I don’t think we talk about, blog about, nor support small boutiques enough on Bargainmoose. If all we buy from are big box stores, then all we will see are big box stores in the future. Little boutiques, Mom and Pop shops, and small Canadian businesses are going to close up shop because we voted with our money. I know that affording boutique on a budget can be hard, but I make it a priority to shop boutiques and small businesses whenever I can.

Enjoy this great offer with free shipping!

Globo Shoes: Natural Soul Elle Boots $20 (Was $80) & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Globo Shoes: Natural Soul Elle Boots $20 (Was $80) & Free Shipping

Globo Shoes has an incredible deal on these beautiful Elle Boots by Natural Soul. Originally $79.99, the Elle Boots are on clearance for $19.98 with free shipping.

This pair of fantastic looking booties is currently in stock in the following sizes:

  • 6
  • 6 1/2
  • 7
  • 7 1/2
  • 9 1/2

First of all, you might notice that Globo calls these the Beckes. I have noticed that companies like Globo (Little Burgundy, Aldo, etc.) arbitrarily give names to shoes that are not their actual names. I do not know why… but I have found that happens quite often. I researched this shoe and found it on Shoes.com where they supply far more information about the shoe, the brand, and the name. So I am going by the name they call it: the Elle Boots.

In addition, as a little price comparison, Shoes.com currently sells the Elle Boots for $92.71 not including shipping.

The Elle Boot features a faux leather upper with a rounded toe. This is a wedge style bootie with beautiful decorative strap overlays for wicked style. In the comfort department, there is a side zip enclosure and a hidden elastic goring panel. These shoes look awesome and I would pay $20 in a heartbeat for them if they were in my size. I adore the strap overlay – it matches my style!

These shoes have a ton of reviews on Shoes.com for a 4.5/5 rating. Here are a few of the more recent reviews:

This product went above my expectations! They are a comfortable, snug true to size shoe and the heel is very easy to walk in. I like that I can wear them to work and my feet and legs don’t ache at the days end.

and…

These shoes have a super cushiony insole that keep feet comfortable all day long — even if you have to stand! They are super cute and match with so many outfits.

Naturalizer Canada makes Natural Soul so you know you are getting a comfortable shoe when you order these booties. What makes this deal really amazing is the free shipping offer. Right now Globo Shoes Canada is offering free shipping on any order with no minimum. Usually, they have a $50 minimum that these shoes would certainly not reach. Now is the best time to check out the clearance section and find a special pair of shoes at an amazing price.

Billabong Canada: 50% Off Beanies & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Billabong Canada: 50% Off Beanies & Free Shipping

Billabong Canada is offering 50% off a selection of sweet little beanies to keep your head warm this fall. You will also receive free shipping on all orders.

It tis the season for keeping our ears warm if you are anywhere in the northern or western portion of Canada. I think the East is still getting some nice weather right now. I ran across some fun little beanies that are reasonably priced and qualify for free shipping so there is no reason you cannot afford to grab one or two for your front closet.

If you are just looking for a good ol’ beanie that does the job for a low price, then pick up the Classic Beanie for only $12.50 (was $25). Choose from black or jade with a cute little pompom on top.

Next up is the super slouchy Karibu beanie with a pom-pom and a couple tassels for extra fun. Pick this little number up in pumpkin spice – a colour combination that will make you dream of pumpkin spice lattes and pie. Originally $28, the beanie is on sale for $14. For the same price, you can purchase the Freedom Ringz Beanie that will certainly turn heads! It is a brightly coloured beanie with blues and purples for primary colours – reminiscent of space.

The Marble Tracks Beanie looks a lot like the Karibu beanie for style with a chunky knit and a slouchier design. The Marble Tracks also comes in two different colours: hot candy or pumpkin spice. Originally $30, the hat is on sale for $15.

My favourite hat of the collection is called Over Our Headz and features rainbow colours offset by a black and white band. I love the thick red braids coming down from the polar-fleece lined toque. For $15 (was $30), this is a very good purchase.

The Misty Moonrize Beanie is similar in style to my favourite beanie in that they are both earflap style toques. The Misty Moonrize is a little less colourful and features Sherpa lining instead of polar fleece. It also has thinner braids. Originally $30, this is a very good deal at only $15.

I really like this deal because all the beanies are $15 and under, which will suit almost any budget. In addition, this is a seasonally appropriate item as we are just heading into the cold season.

All beanies receive free shipping whether you purchase one or more.

Book Depository (UK): Free Shipping No Minimum & Foreign Release Books

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Book Depository (UK): Free Shipping No Minimum & Foreign Release Books

Book Depository (UK) offers free shipping on any order with no minimum to Canada. For book lovers, this is a favourite website for finding older titles and new releases.

You can select Canadian currency at the top right so there is no confusion with currency conversion. Now, free shipping on any book order alone is fantastic. Books are heavy and Canada post most certainly does not deliver them to your door for free so Book Depository foots the bill.

Now, the second part of this ‘deal’ that should tickle any book-lovers fancy is access to foreign books not yet released in the USA or Canada. What we have access to on Chapters Indigo or Amazon.ca are books that have been released in North America. However, our release dates can be several years after the books have been released in other countries – like the UK.

The #1 best-selling book on Book Depository right now is The Sleeper and the Spindle (Hardback) by Neil Gaiman. It just was released by Bloomsbury in the UK but will not be released in the USA or Canada until late summer or early fall 2015. Rather than wait almost an entire year for a new book by one of our favourite authors, many Canadians (including me) have bought the book from Book Depository. The Sleeper and the Spindle is currently 27% off. If you are a Gaiman fan or a Chris Riddell fan (fantastic illustrations), then pick up the book for $16.95 (was $23.49). Sure, it is considered a children’s book, but Gaiman’s creations rarely disappoint adult readers.

Even if you could buy the book at Amazon or Chapters (which you cannot) you would never receive free shipping on a book for that price as both our companies have a $25 minimum.

This comes down to two important points:

  1. Free shipping on any book order – no matter how many/few or how expensive/cheap
  2. Access to books that our ‘usual’ book stores do not have access to

You may not even know that some of these books exist unless you follow your favourite authors. When I first found out about The Sleeper book, it was through Neil Gaiman’s twitter. The book is was not even showing up on Amazon or Chapters Indigo a week ago when I ordered as the North American release date was so far away.

As per usual, price compare any books if they are currently available in your normal book stores.

Freshpair (US): BOGO Free Bali, Playtex & Lilyette Bras

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Freshpair (US): BOGO Free Bali, Playtex & Lilyette Bras

I cannot resist a good lingerie deal and this offer by Freshpair is fantastic! Throw away those worn out bras ladies and restock your drawers with this buy one get one free bra offer from Freshpair (US). All Bali, Playtex, and Lilyette bras are no buy one get your second bra free (of equal or lesser value).

I like this deal because:

  • You can get up to a $40US bra for free
  • You can mix and match between all three brands
  • Freshpair has a reasonable $50US free shipping minimum to Canada

I have also not been hit with duty on any of my orders at Freshpair, and I hope that trend continues for our lovely Moosers. The only thing I do not like about this deal is you are limited to one free bra per order. As you are trying to avoid duty anyway, I suppose this is not too big of a deal but two free bras would have been nice.

If I were taking advantage of this offer, I would purchase the Passion for Comfort Shaping Underwire Bra for $40US (approx. $44.84 C). Bras can look like a million dollars but if you pull at them all day or if they are uncomfortable, they should not be worn. This bra looks very comfortable and comes in several different colours.

For my free bra, I would choose the Passion for Comfort Shaping Wirefree Bra for the same price. I have been looking for a wirefree bra to wear to bed for the longest time. I do not like wearing wired bras to bed as they can dig in if I sleep in an odd position (always!). A wireless bra will provide a bit of support and keep skin on skin contact to a minimum. This one comes in just basic colours like black, white, and nude but the embroidery along the bottom looks very nice.

If you need to pad out your cart a bit for free shipping at $50US, I suggest the clearance section. Both these Legwear Sheer Herringbone Pantyhose and these Legwear Opaque 40D Tights by Lauren Ralph Lauren were $18 and are now on sale for $5.40 USD. That is a huge discount! Putting one of each of these hosiery in my cart with the above bras would put me just over that free shipping minimum. That is two quality hosiery and two good bras for $50.80 US.

Dell Canada: Dell Duo Tablet Case $20 & Free Shipping (Save $13)

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Dell Canada: Dell Duo Tablet Case $20 & Free Shipping (Save $13)

Dell Canada is selling the Dell Duo Tablet Case in black for just $19.99, which saves you $13 off the original price of $32.99. If you have a Dell Venue 8 tablet, then you need one of these cases.

A word from the recently educated: check the model number on your Dell tablet and make sure it matches the model number mentioned in the ad. This case is for the Dell Venue 8 Model 3840: no other Venue 8 tablet. Ignore the placement of the buttons in the picture that look like they are in the right place for your Venue if it is not the correct model number. My husband bought this (in blue) for his Dell tablet and it came with the area for buttons on the opposite side to the picture (fancy that) so it did not fit his tablet whatsoever. He owns the previous model. Thus, we had to send it back.

However, while it was here I interacted with the cover and I must say it is very nice. It is miles better than the crappy one they had for his model of Venue. This one is a tough yet flexible rubber that is thick enough to protect your tablet yet thin enough not to add extra bulk.

The two layers are both cool and functional: there is a shock absorbing inner lining and a hard-rubberized outer shell for dual protection. The rubber is textured for easy handling and you can keep a better grip on your tablet with this case.

I think this is a great deal because these cases are still so relevant. All the other case colours are full price and this case is for a tablet that Dell still produces. This case is for the New Dell Venue 8 (16GB) – model 3840 – that retails for $299.99 and is now on sale for $279.99. My husband has the previous model of the same tablet and just loves his tablet. The expandable memory is a real bonus as I gave him one of my camera’s SD cards and presto he has a 32GB memory for $0 additional dollars. I could give him my 32GB memory card for $32GB + 16GB = 48GB but I am holding onto that card.

Dell offers free shipping on all orders. Be sure to sign up for the Dell Advantage card and receive 5% off your purchases back on a gift card.

Hudson’s Bay Canada: 70% Off T-FAL Talent Cookware

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Hudsons Bay Canada: 70% Off T FAL Talent Cookware

The Bay Canada has a super sweet deal on T-FAL Talent frying pans right now. Receive 70% off the 20 cm, 24 cm and 30 cm size pans.

A little background if I may. You may have noticed that Margarita posted a fantastic deal on a set of T-FAL Bliss pans yesterday. The Bliss is one of T-FAL’s basic line of pans whereas the Talent is one of their higher end lines, thus there is a huge price difference between the two lines. Thankfully, the sale price brings the Talent line down into the price range of common mortal cooks.

The Talent set is made of heavy gauge aluminum with a steel base for better heat distribution. The steel also prevents the pan from warping at higher temperatures. These are high-sided frying pans to increase cooking capacity. They also have some advanced anti-splatter technology. The Talent line specifically features “6 layers of ultra hard non-stick coating, safe to use on metal utensils.” It is rather rare that any non-stick company says you can use metal utensils on their products so they really must have put a lot into this line.

Talent 20 cm Fry Pan - Was $64.99 | Now $19.49

A quick price comparison shows us that Amazon Canada is selling this pan at $46.98 and Future Shop has it for $46.98 as well. Hudson’s Bay is charging less than half the price of competitors!

Talent 24 cm Fry Pan – Was $79.99 | Now $24

Amazon Canada sells the same pan for $55.99 and Best Buy Canada offers the T-FAL Talent 24cm pan for $61.98. Yet again, Hudson’s Bay has by far the best price on this frying pan, undercutting the competition by over 50%.

Talent 30 cm Fry Pan – Was $99.99 | Now $29.99

A quick price comparison for this size of pan showed it for $89.10 at Amazon. Neither Best Buy nor Future Shop stocks the larger size.

Overall, I would say this is a fantastic deal for anyone needing new cookware. If you are on a really tight budget, then I would suggest buying the Bliss set that Margarita blogged about. However, if you can afford a bit better quality I would spring for this set of three Talent pans instead as they should last longer.

Shipping is free on orders of $49 or more if you pay with an HBC Card. With all other currencies, shipping starts at $5.95 and is free on orders of $99 or more.

Joe Fresh: 80% Off Lace Up Tank – Now $4.94

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Joe Fresh: 80% Off Lace Up Tank   Now $4.94

Receive 80% off this Lace Up Tank at Joe Fresh. Originally $24, the tank is on sale for just $4.94.

A word of advice: buy soon as this tank top is selling out quickly. The top comes in three colours, white, blue, and pink. I suggest you check out the blue version first as it is your best change at finding your size in stock. As I write this, all sizes (XS – XL) are currently in stock in the blue colour. The same is not true for the other colours. White currently has size small in stock. Pink is only available in XS now.

This cute little top is perfect for layering. It has a front lace-up drawstring closure accenting the scoop neck. The shirt is made of 100% cotton slub jersey and is semi-transparent. It is meant to be a loose fitting shirt and would work well for layering under other pieces.

While checkout out this top, I also fount this Active Keyhole Back Tank from Joe Fresh on sale for 74%. The athletic tank top was originally $19 and is now on final sale for $4.94. It is totally worth picking up right now, as all sizes are in stock except for size large. This keyhole back tank is on final clearance in silver. It features a scoop neck front with a racer back above the mid-back keyhole opening. The tank hits just past your hip on medium height women. For those shorter or taller, the tank will land at a different spot on your body.

Are you loading up your cart with goodies yet? If you are a size medium, then you should add this Print Tiered Tank to your cart stat! Originally $39, the top is marked down to just $6.94. Enjoy 82% off your brand new shirt and shimmy the night away in those swishing layers.

There are so many sweet deals on in the sale section right now; these were just three I could not resist sharing with you. You should also know about another (unrelated) deal currently on at Joe Fresh Canada right now. When you spend $20 on select children’s winter accessories, receive 20% off. Spend $35 or more on select children’s winter accessories and receive 25% off. The Joe Fresh coupon codes for this offer are on the forum so check them out.

Receive free shipping on $50 or more.

Town Shoes Canada: BOBS By Skechers Now $30 (Save $25)

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Town Shoes Canada: BOBS By Skechers Now $30 (Save $25)

Purchase a pair of Bobs Heart Espadrilles or Bobs Heart Tag Alongs by Skechers for just $29.99, originally $55 at Town Shoes Canada.

I honestly have no idea how Sketchers ever got away with this line of shoes. They use the classic espadrille style for which Toms is famous. The name BOBS is a similar three letter simple masculine name followed by a ‘s’ to mimic Toms. In addition, for every pair of shoes that is sold, “Skechers will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.” Seriously? While I am all for charity, this is such a blatant fan-boy attempt on Sketcher’s part to mimic Toms. WOW.

Putting that aside, this is a good price for a pair of shoe. You are saving $25 and almost all sizes are still in stock. Bobs features a good size range: women’s size five and up to size 11 including most half sizes. Bobs are not all mimicry either: the Heart Tag A Long features elastics near the back and front of the foot for a better fit and more flexibility. This is not a feature you will see in a pair of Toms shoes.

I have tried Toms shoes and they failed me miserably. The top of the espadrille cut in to the top of my foot so badly that after 15 minutes of wearing them the mark they left would take over an hour to disappear. They were painful and unpleasant. I have worn Sketchers before and found the stretch Skechers puts into their shoes a pleasant reprieve for my feet. I would be willing to try espadrille style shoes again, from Skechers, as they are a different company, thus the fit would be different.

Both shoes have canvas uppers and rubber soles for comfort. They feature a woven natural fiber mid-sole trim for that carefree summer look.

Town Shoes offers free shipping on orders of $70 or more. For orders under this minimum, shipping is just $8. You can also receive free shipping to your local store. There are also two other shipping offers. Shoe Lovers Reward Members receive free shipping on $35. If you are a Shoe Lovers Rewards VIP member, you will receive free shipping on any order with no minimum. You can learn about the programs here.

Staples Canada is selling the Samsung LS22D390HS/ZC 21.5″ LED Monitor for $169.99 right now. However, buy two and your second one will only cost $30, which means you get two monitors for just $199.99 (value of $339.98).

I quickly price compared this monitor with Canadian competitors:

  • $169.99 @ Newegg Canada
  • $149.99 @ Tiger Direct Canada
  • $150.60 @ Best Direct Canada

That price is per monitor. With this deal, you are paying a nominal amount more for a second monitor. I am stoked about this deal!

The monitor has a 21.5″ display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Enjoy an aspect ratio of 16:9 with a quick 5ms response time. The monitor has a slim form that features both VGA and HDMI ports so you can connect your laptop or your smartphone for a more productive environment. No need to stare at a small screen when you have a 21.5″ monitor or two you can use. With the right software, you can spread your screen across both the monitors or use them separately for opening different applications.

There are four reviews of this monitor with a solid four out of five star rating overall. Here is what one reviewer had to say:

Easy to set up, excellent colours, resolution and clarity. When used on HDMI be sure to reset sound settings (after installing driver) as monitor does not have built-in speakers. Great price for use at home.

Another reviewer agreed with his assessment but did find the lack of speakers a pain:

I bought this monitor to hook up a ps3 to it, works great! it has many different settings and it takes awhile to understand all of them. If your thinking of buying this make sure you read the manual that comes with it, its very helpful. This monitor is a pain to use to game because it has no speakers, you can hook it up to your headphones or speakers. (with another accessory) Other wise this monitor is a great and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a monitor for gaming.

I have always found built in monitor speakers to be pretty crap anyway so I would recommend buying some external speakers (they run cheap). You can usually find some great sets on used sites like Kijiji or Craigslist as well. With this offer of two monitors for $200, the price really cannot be beat for a brand name monitor of this size. If you do not need two monitors, then place your purchase with a friend and split the savings. Quantities are limited.

Receive free shipping as this deal costs over $45.

Canadian Freebie: Crusader – No Remorse Free (Was $4.99) @ Origin.com

Canadian Freebie: Crusader   No Remorse Free (Was $4.99) @ Origin.com

Take advantage of this limited time offer from Origin.com to download Crusader: No Remorse for free to your PC.

This is the base game, standard edition. The usual fine print applies. You must be 13 years or older, have access to an internet connection, and have an Origin account as well. This game is rated ‘Teen’ due to animated violence. The so-called ‘animated violence’ is pretty obvious since almost every screen capture of the game features a good amount of red from something blowing up or being shot.

Here is the game description:

As a Silencer, one of the elite enforcers of the World Economic Consortium, you’re supposed to be incorruptible. But if the system you serve is utterly corrupt, where does that leave you? You go over to the Resistance, the same pack you used to hunt down. Now, your former employers better watch their backs because you’re coming after them with all the firepower at your command.

Crusader: No Remorse was released way back in 1995 so it doesn’t have all those fancy-shmancy little graphics that you might be use to by now. However, if you played this back in the day it might be a nice nostalgic trip down memory lane. Happily, if you are still trucking away on an old computer, this game has very simple system requirements that your vintage computer just might be able to fill. Check it out.

While I would never pay $4.99 for this game myself, it is not a bad thing to pick up free. I am always a fan of free entertainment and this looks well equipped to take me into another world for at least a few hours.

If any of our Moosers have played this game, let me know! Your comments will help guide other lost souls on whether they should bother with downloading No Remorse or not.
