Amazon Canada: All New Kindle Touch Only $64

Amazon Canada: All New Kindle Touch Only $64

If you are looking to pick up an eReader this holiday season, Amazon Canada has the ultimate early Black Friday deal for you. Purchase the Kindle touch screen e-reader for just $64 (was $79) with free shipping!

This is the all-new Kindle with a touch screen display. It has double the on device storage – 4GB – that will hold thousands of ebooks. The eReader’s 6″ tall display is like reading a paperback novel and the slim design fits easily in your bag and in more generous pockets.

The basic touch Kindle takes only four hours to charge for up to four weeks of life! The device comes with Wi-Fi and a 167 PPI screen resolution.

If I were purchasing an eReader, I would purchase the basic Kindle for $64. However, if you need a backlit screen then you can also buy the Kindle Paperwhite. The paperwhite is on sale for $119, down from $139. The two main differences between the two devices are screen resolution and lighting. The Paperwhite boasts a 212 PPI and has the added benefit of the back-lit whereas the basic Kindle touch does not. Besides those two features, they are nearly identical units. Personally, I would stick with the cheaper Kindle.

I am very happy that the basic Kindle is now a touch screen as that is necessary in my mind. It makes aspects of reading like flipping pages far more natural. The basic Kindle has also won many hearts as it has a 4.1/5 rating with over 100 reviews. One reviewer said:

So far this hasn’t let me down. I’ve downloaded a number of books on it both through amazon and Baen books. No issues so far. The ability to push PDFs to the kindle has been absolutely wonderful for work. I can have a technical manual on my kindle and work in front of my computer without having to swap between windows.

For $64 and free shipping, I could see buying these as gifts for a few book loving friends and sticking it under their Christmas trees. While everyone seems to have a tablet these days, their battery life just does not sustain the length of time most bookworms like to read so a dedicated eReader is necessary.

Superdry CA: 50% Off Dresses & 30% Off Everything

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 8:24 PM

Superdry CA: 50% Off Dresses & 30% Off Everything

Superdry Canada currently has two fantastic promotions on. Get 50% off dresses right now and receive 30% off everything else! You will also receive free express shipping on your entire order.

The best deal is on the dresses so let us start with that one first. For a festive winter dress, choose the Prism Lace Bodycon Dress with long sleeves to keep your arms cozy. Pair this bodycon dress with a pair of sparkly tights and killer heels to complete your Christmas party wardrobe. Originally $80, it is now on sale for $40.

Looking for the ultimate glitz and glamour and don’t mind a few shivers? This 50s Premium Jewel Dress was $230 and is now $115. Both the bust line and the skirt are richly embellished with beads. Sizes range from XXS to L though their conversion to numbered sizes uses the UK system. US sizes are generally 4 below UK. Thus, a UK size 14 us a US size 10.

My favourite dress is the Brushed Odessa Dress because of all that beautiful lace. The dress comes in grey, navy, or off white. Originally $100, the dress is now $50. I like it in grey with the pink trim best.

Everything else on their website is 30% off including outwear and jackets, which are often excluded from promotions. This Arctic Windcheater for women was $140 and is now $98 in a variety of colours. If you live in Eastern Canada and are being buried under a load of snow currently, then you might want something a bit more substantial. The Everest Duffle Coat that was $260 and is now $182 looks very warm.

Men need warm coats too. I picked out the reasonably priced Polar Sports Puffer that was $150 and is now $105. The jacket features full fleece lining, a zip front fastening, bungee-cord hood, two side pockets, single inside pocket, ribbed hem and ribbed cuffs with thumbholes. Three different colours are available.

I have yet to try Superdry but I really like what I see so far. They make some nice items that look good quality. In addition, your order comes duty paid with free express shipping! There is no need to worry about extra charges.

Steam Exploration Sale Featuring 90% Off Battleblock Theater – Now $1.69

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 5:44 PM

Steam Exploration Sale Featuring 90% Off Battleblock Theater   Now $1.69

Steam is indulging in an Exploration Sale with feature deals that last a couple days and daily deals that are released at 2 PM EST each day. One of today’s daily deals is Battleblock Theater for a breathtaking 90% off. Originally $16.99, the game is now on sale for $1.69.

The game sounds wicked awesome. You are on a quest to free over 300 of your closest and dearest *cough* imprisoned friends from some evil technological cats that are trying to rule the world or run a circus or something. The game style looks a lot like Mario and you can even build your own levels to screw with your friends. It will probably be the best entertainment you have had for $2, much better than that bouncy ball you got out of that giant gumball machine.

Steam has a plethora of great deals on other games right now as well. Here are some of the highest discounts:

Some recently released games are included in this sale for those holding out on the most recent edition of their favourite franchise. The Evil Within was just released in October this year, but the game that usually retails for $66.49 is on sale for just $22.60.

I do not play many games on Steam Powered, but Sid Meier’s Civilization series happens to be the one I play most. I have not bought the most recent release, Beyond Earth, as I am not quite ready to step off the planet I know and love so well. However, this sale brings Beyond Earth, which was released near the end of October 2014, down to $34.99, from $49.99.

While scrolling down through the immense number of games on sale I ran into many quirky ones like this BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien for just $1.35, originally $16.99. This game rather reminds me of a Sonic the Hedgehog racing game where you run instead of drive around and collect gold while navigating obstacles and hitting power ups. Reviews say that the music and scenery are worth it even if you suck at playing the game.

Be sure to check back tomorrow after 2PM EST to see what other amazing games will be on sale.

Shop.ca: Mexx Shawl Collar Sweater $15 (Was $98) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 1:17 PM

Shop.ca: Mexx Shawl Collar Sweater $15 (Was $98) (EXPIRED)

Shop.ca has an incredible early Black Friday deal on Mexx clothing right now. Receive an extra 50% off all adult clothing and 40% off children’s clothing. This offer includes all sale items so this men’s Mexx Shawl Collar Pullover Sweater that was $98 comes down to just $14.99 with free shipping.

Small is already out of stock and there are limited quantities available in the rest of the sizes that span from XS through XXL. This is a fantastic looking men’s sweater and, knowing Mexx, it is made with good quality materials. It looks super warm and cozy. I like a higher neckline for winter and the shawl collar will certainly help you keep warm.

While this sale is on until the end of the month, quantities are not going to last that long so you really must buy as soon as possible or you are going to miss out on the best deals. This deal is outrageously good, and there is more where that came from.

I also found this men’s Mexx Striped Long-sleeved Top on sale from $56.99. When added to your cart it comes down to a beautiful $7.49. Sizes small and medium are already out of stock but there are a few shirts left in other sizes. This out of stock thing is starting to be a real pain as my husband wears a size small!

The Mexx Monochrome T-shirt is another great option for men. Originally $40, you will pay just $7.49 in your cart. Only size large is out of stock right now.

For the women, this Mexx Classic Black Cardigan is one of my favourite deals. For one, I am missing a simple black cardigan from my wardrobe and I know how incredibly useful one of those would be. This cardigan was $76, but after you add it to your cart the top comes down to just $14.99. I also like this Mexx Turtleneck Sweater in Viscose for women though the powder pink would not do well with my skin tone. Originally $66, pay just $14.99 after additional discount.

If you spend $50 or more, either request a unique $20 off $50 coupon code here or use our exclusive BARGAINMOOSE10OFF50 $10 off $50 coupon code to bring your cart total even lower!

NeatoShop (US): Free Shipping Worldwide

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 1:00 PM

NeatoShop (US): Free Shipping Worldwide

Get worldwide free shipping on awesome t-shirts from amazing artists at NeatoShop. This offer is only good through tomorrow, so hop to it like little bunnies.

The free shipping offer apples to t-shirts only. T-shirts start at just $19.95 and all prices are in USD.

These are not your plain, boring, stupid, graphic tees. These amazing, wonderful, creative, and sometimes outrageous and gory teas will actually impress the receiver with your thoughtfulness! These tees also service the geekdom at large. Do you like: Star Trek? Star Wars? Dr. Who? Hello Kitty? My Little Pony? We won’t tell. However, there is a shirt for your type of geek waiting for you on NeatoShop right now.

I found out about this sale because the artist of a web comic I read has shirts on Neato. Her handle is Dooomcat and she makes thinks that are cute and fluffy with a bit of blood and bad things happening sometimes. I just LOVE the way she melds different things together or how she changes our perspective on old classics. Her Hiding in the Dark  shirt is pretty awesome to someone who grew up playing Where’s Waldo in the doctor’s office waiting room.

One of those mash ups I was talking about is shown in Puffcicles. The shirt melds the drawing style of the Power Puff Girls with the characters from Frozen. It is nostalgic for me and yet relevant for an entirely new generation of kids who love women of action!

The Father of the Year shirt answers the question about what would life have been like for Luke and Leia had Darth been an active force in their lives (haha!). I think this shirt is sooooo adorable and they should make an entire animated TV series based on it.

Nailing down my favourite t-shirt is hard because I love so many of them. This My Angry Neighbor  is a strong contender because I am a massive fan of My Neighbor Totoro and I have a strong feeling there is a reference to Godzilla somewhere in this piece.

I have never shopped at Neato before, but I think they are an awesome store and an amazing place to buy Christmas gifts. With free shipping, I thought this was a cool place to introduce you too. You may be subject to customs on orders of $20 or more. I do not know how Canadians have fared in the past, as I have never ordered from them before.

Walmart Canada: 6′ Pre-Lit Christmas Trees Only $20

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 12:07 PM

Walmart Canada: 6 Pre Lit Christmas Trees Only $20

Walmart Canada is selling 6′ Christmas trees with lights built in (saves on decorating expenses) for only $20 each! You can choose from clear lights or multicoloured lights.

As per usual, Walmart fails to list the original price of these trees but this is really cheap – that I know!

Each of these trees stands about six feet tall when mounted on the plastic base. They are made to look like a green pine tree and have 484 tips for added realism. Strung among the branches are 250 incandescent lights. These lights are designed to stay lit even if one in the string should burn out. You can choose the tree with clear bulbs or go for the more colourful multicoloured lights.

A string of 250 bulbs would set you back nearly $20 alone these days, so a tree and bulbs for that price is pretty awesome. I may love the smell of a real tree but I think the trees should stay in the forest and Christmas trees should be a representation of a tree, not the real thing. Besides, sap and needles are a bastard to clean up after, especially if you have a carpet.

Now, if you miss out on this deal, there are some 6.5″ trees with 350 lights and 600 tips. for $49 with lights as well that are still a pretty good offer (one has already sold out). If the above trees sell out, check out these for only $49:

There are a few other good tree deals on in smaller sizes like four foot trees and a few other decorative models. These are more your primary Christmas tree size.

As per usual, receive free shipping on all orders with Walmart Canada.

Seasons of Grimm just $13.99 (Blu-Ray) @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on November 26, 2014 at 11:22 AM

Seasons of Grimm just $13.99 (Blu Ray) @ Amazon Canada

Amazon Canada really has the best deals on movies and television series out right now. Pick up Season 1 or Season 2 of the popular series Grimm (Blu-Ray) for just $13.99 each, originally $57.99.

These are both in Blu-Ray format, which is generally the most expensive format to purchase. I price compared with a couple other places to make sure you were getting the best deal. I found these prices at other sellers:

Season 1 Grimm: Blu-Ray

  • $57.97 @ Walmart Canada
  • $41.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $45 @ HMV Canada

Season 2 Grimm: Blu-Ray

  • $47.97 @ Walmart Canada
  • $39.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $45 @ HMV Canada

As you can see from the competitor’s prices, this is a very good sale price on the first two seasons of Grimm in Blu-Ray format.

I really do not know much about this show other than what the name suggests – that it involves the Brothers Grimm and most likely monsters of some sort and a twisted fairy tale like plot. Part of this reviewer’s review sums up Grimm nicely:

…to my surprise, “Grimm Season 1″ ended up being a very solid urban fantasy show, with plenty of dark humor, mystery and some very creepy supernatural creatures. It could use a little more arc in its storylines, but it successfully meld police detective work with the stories of the Brothers Grimm. These are not children’s fairy tales.

If you want season three, you will have to pay substantially more. Season 3 in Blu-Ray is currently on sale for $36.99, originally $64.99. Season 4, as any fans of the show will know, has not even been released yet but you can pre-order it.

When I purchase a TV series, I always start at the beginning, doesn’t everyone? I cannot handle the idea of buying season two or three if I do not already own season one. It just seems weird. I also will not buy book two of a series if I do not already own book one. I am odd that way.

If you have seen Grimm, drop us a line and tell us what you think of the series!

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Canadian Tire Red Thursday & Black Friday Flyer Released!

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 8:14 PM

Canadian Tire Red Thursday & Black Friday Flyer Released!

Canadian Tire has released their Red Thursday and Black Friday Flyer as their sales start in store tomorrow and goes through Sunday night. The entire flyer is attached for you, but I will highlight some of the deals I think are worth checking out.

Now, all these deals are in-store only as Canadian Tire has not fully integrated their online shopping back into their website yet after years of no online shopping. However, there will be a Cyber Sale at Canadian Tire starting Saturday night.

Let us start with Red Thursday deals! They are going to be selling a Stanley 235-piece black chrome socket set for just $99.99, down from $399.99. You will save $300, which equals 75% off the original price.

In the spirit of the holidays, purchase a pre-lit 6’5 Pine Christmas Tree for just $59.99 and save $110 off the original price of $169.99.

Kitchenaid is one of my favourite brands so I started drooling at the following two deals. Save 70% on a KitchenAid Stoneware 5-piece set. Originally $99.99, they are on sale for $28.88 starting tomorrow. You will not want to miss the Kitchenaid 15-piece cookware set for just $88, originally $369.99. They even have a Kitchenaid bamboo cutting board for only $8.88 (originally $29.99). I love bamboo because it is a sustainable plant.

I would be remiss if I did not mention some more incredible tool deals. Enjoy 80% off a Mastercraft 80-piece screwdriver set. Originally $99.99, the entire set will be just $18.88!

If you need a greater variety of tools, then you should pick up the ultimate tool kit for shops, homeowners, and DIY-ers everywhere. The 191-piece Tool Set retails for $199.99 but will be on sale for $58.99 for Black Friday. This Mastercraft 71-piece air tool kit is also a great option as it includes an impact wrench, ratchet, chisel, grinder, and more. It will be on sale for $78.99, originally $279.99.

Some deals are so good that Canadian Tire does not even bother to show the original price. I am not sure how much the Sauder four-drawer chest originally retailed for, but it will only cost you $44.99 this weekend. It appears there are limited quantities and no rainchecks are allowed.

Be at your local Canadian Tire bright eyed and bushy tailed tomorrow morning for the best selection!

The Source Black Friday Flyer Released with Up to 75% Off!

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 7:27 PM

The Source Black Friday Flyer Released with Up to 75% Off!

The Source Canada has just released their Black Friday Flyer and we have it here for you at the Bargainmoose. We have the entire flyer for you, but I am going to point out some of my favourite deals.

Technology deals happen to be a favourite for Black Friday, and I know we are all looking for that special deal to satisfy our technological needs.

I am really looking forward to the JBL Charge 10W Bluetooth Speaker door crasher. The speaker with built-in bass port (flyer fails to mention) retails for $159.99 but will be on sale for $89.99 come Friday. The speaker has really great reviews on the website so far with one reviewer saying:

I just got mine today and I love it so much I haven’t stopped using it! It gets so loud and it’s so clear! For the price it’s way better than Jambox mini or even the Beats Pill. Pill killer for sure! Must have for portable music lovers!!!

Score that for $90 and you will be flying!

I am also looking forward to the Fitbit Flex for $79.99 (save $20) as it is about time I did somthing about my fitness level. This 64GB USB Thumb Drive for only $19.99 (originally $79.99) is also on my to buy list as my largest flash drive is still around 4GB, which is pathetic!

There are so many other good deals. Pick up this Sony Blu-Ray Player for $49.99 (originally $89.99) on Black Friday weekend if you have wrecked your PS3 as I almost did.

There is also 75% off McAfee Internet Security 2015 – 3 Users or McAfee Total protection 2015 – 3 Users. Internet Security was $69.99 and is dropping to $14.99. Total protection was $79.99 and is going down to $19.99.

All cameras will be on sale, toys will be buy one get one 50% off, and you can even find sale prices on Apple products like iPods.

Perhaps one of their best deals, this Innovative Tech Tower Bluetooth stereo with piano finish will be only $49.99, down from $149.99. The speaker deals are out of this world!

The deals all start on Black Friday – shop early before items start to sell out.

Walmart Canada: Rubbermaid 50 pc Set only $14.88

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 6:50 PM

Walmart Canada: Rubbermaid 50 pc Set only $14.88

Walmart Canada has a fantastic deal on a Rubbermaid 50 piece set with easy find lids for all your storage needs. Pay only $14.88 with free shipping.

Price comparing is super hard because Walmart fails to list the original price of this item. However, I found an old cache for Walmart Canada that had the price at $37.98 and that seems pretty reasonable given that Amazon.com has the original price as $37.99. Finding this particular set in Canada is extremely hard except from Walmart Canada. Ignore the dolt selling it for $92 through the Amazon Marketplace. The 24-piece set at Walmart Canada costs $19.97 so you know this is a good deal!

The set includes containers of the following sizes:

  • 0.5 cups (118 mL)
  • 1.25 cups (296 mL)
  • 2 cups (473 mL)
  • 3 cups (710 mL)
  • 5 cups (1.2 Liter)
  • 7 cups (1.7 Liter)
  • 9 cups (2.1 Liter)

There are generally more of the smaller sizes and less of the larger sizes. The lids snap to each base and other lids nest inside each other making this an easy to find lid system. The lids are red and the bases are clear. On other websites, this set has got great reviews including this one:

So many lids! The set is great for those who like to prepare meals ahead of time. It helps to organize a weeks worth of food for my apartment. We’re both graduate students and have limited time to prepare food. So we use these and Sundays to ensure we eat healthy throughout the week.

I had better hide this deal from my husband or he will be ordering it before I can hide his credit card. My husband loves containers and filling containers with things. What he does is forget things (like food) are in containers and then never eats them leaving foot to eventual spoil. Alternatively, I become tasked with surveying the fridge every few days to find what he has stuck and subsequently forgot in containers and first reminding him and then subsequently freezing the food before it goes bad. With a 50-piece set, I can only imagine the stacks of food in the fridge!

Pick this set up before they sell out!

Dell Canada: Dell 22″ Monitor $99.99 & Other Early Black Friday Deals

Dell Canada: Dell 22 Monitor $99.99 & Other Early Black Friday Deals

Dell Canada has released their Early Black Friday sale with deals on electronics, computers, televisions, and more. I found a sweet Dell E2214H 22″ Inch LED monitor on sale from $179.99 down to $99.99 with free shipping.

Okay, let us give a little context to this deal. We have not seen this good a deal on a Dell 22″ monitor since January when the previous version (E2213H) was on sale for the same price. Before that, you would have to go back to last Cyber Monday. As you can see, this kind of price on a 22″ Dell monitor is pretty rare – restricted to once or twice a year – so it is worth picking up.

This is an update on the earlier edition seen in January. The Dell E2214H monitor features a wide-screen with full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution at 60Hz (max). The monitor has LED backlighting, a fast 5 ms response time typically, and about an 84% colour gamut.

There are a bunch of other deals you can score during this early Black Friday sale as well. Check out some of these other deals:

There are plenty more deals where these came from. I rather like the Chromebook 11 deal because I refuse to spend over $300 on a basic laptop these days (unless it is a gaming laptop). I would love another Alienware computer but even on sale, it is a bit out of my price range.

My husband has a Dell tablet, so all the dell accessories are certainly interesting. When I do buy a desktop computer, I will certainly purchase my monitor during Black Friday deals because these monitor deals are sweet whether you buy the 22″ or the 24″ size.

Make sure to sign up for the Dell Advantage to receive 5% back in Dell gift cards. That could really add up if you are buying a laptop or a television.

Shop.ca: Monster DNA Headphones just $74.99 TODAY (EXPIRED)

Shop.ca: Monster DNA Headphones just $74.99 TODAY (EXPIRED)

Shop.ca has a phenomenal early Black Friday deal on these Monster DNA Headphones. For today only they are $94.99 plus you can get yourself an unique $20 off $50 coupon code here to use on them. That brings your cost down to just $74.99 with free shipping.

This is a phenomenal price for a set of Monster DNA Headphones. Even at the sale price of $94.99, you are getting a better deal than all the competitors are offering. Now, if you have already used your $20 off $50 coupon on another great deal, then you can always use our exclusive BARGAINMOOSE10OFF50 $10 off $50 coupon code – it will bring the headset down to $84.99, which is still a very good deal. Here is what the competitors are selling this headset for:

  • $199.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $199.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $99.99 @ The Source Canada
  • $170.91 @ Amazon Canada

Only The Source Canada comes close to Shop.ca’s price and is a great alternative if you miss out on this one day sale from Shop.ca. This sale price is only on for today but I am hoping they extend the offer for another day as they did yesterday’s one day Esso deal.

You will receive the Black Tuxedo colour combination. The DNA headset features advanced noise-isolating cushions to keep your music in and let other people on the bus travel in peace. The DNA is made of durable but lightweight materials to stay comfortable all day long. Unlike many headsets, the DNA features dual audio input jacks so you can share your music with a friend.

Most reviews I have read of these headphones are quite positive, and for this price point, you cannot go wrong. This reviewer said:

I loved the look of the headphones, and I am really happy I bought them. Good sound, nice design!

The design is certainly a real sell feature as they are not your traditional round blobs. I love the little triangle and while I am not a fan of Monster since their Dr. Dre collaboration, this headset seems to be a huge step in the right direction for me. I am pretty stoked about this deal (awesome!) and really happy with the design. If I did not already have far too many headsets, I would be buying this in two seconds.

This deal is today only (let us hope they extend it). Purchase now!

Best Buy Canada: BBC Natural History Collections Blu Ray Just $54.99

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Best Buy Canada: BBC Natural History Collections Blu Ray Just $54.99

Best Buy Canada is offering a breathtaking deal on the incredible box sets of the BBC Natural History Collections 1 and 2 in Blu-Ray. Each collection is now just $54.99 with free shipping. These series are retailing for around $113 right now regular price so you will want to take advantage of this offer immediately.

Why Best Buy has the best deal:

Best Buy has the best deal because they are the only company to have both of the BBC Natural History Collections on sale for $54.99. Future Shop and Amazon only have collection two discounted to $54.99. Collection 1 goes for $113.28 at Amazon Canada and $99.99 at Future Shop. Walmart Canada has them for $113.28 each. On top of getting each collection for $54.99 at Best Buy, you can also take advantage of the 5% cash back from Paypal that I blogged about previously.

What you get:

The Natural History Collection 1 in Blu Ray includes the following amazing documentaries:

  • Planet Earth (4 disks)
  • Wild China (2 disks)
  • Galapagos (1 disk)
  • Ganges (1 disk)

Planet Earth was the ground-breaking documentary with stunning videography that really put this BBC series on the map and in the hands on many people. I owned the series before my husband bought me this collection, so I just sold it for $15 to offset the cost of the new box set.

The Natural History Collection 2 in Blu-Ray includes the following documentaries you must see:

  • Life (4 disks)
  • South Pacific (2 disks)
  • Nature’s Most Amazing Events (2 disks)
  • Yellowstone (1 disk)

Did you know that Benedict Cumberbatch narrates the South Pacific series? If you cannot get enough of his sexy voice and you love nature, then this series is a must watch. I have seen everything in this boxed set except for Life – I am still working my way through that one.

Alternatives:

I am listing alternatives because best Buy says they only have one of each in stock right now. I think their current stock is inaccurate as I have watched this sale for a few days now and the stock has not changed despite the amazing price. However, if they should sell out, then you have a couple other options. You can pick up BBC Natural History Collection 2 from Future Shop for $54.99 and still get the 5% cash back (if this is your second purchase with Paypal since the 24th). If that fails, then Amazon Canada also has the BBC Natural History Collection 2 now on sale for $54.99 but you do not get any cash back. There is no alternative for Collection 1 unless you want to pay at least a $35 premium.

  • Built-in Wi-fi

That 8GB of memory is expandable up to 32GB through via the Micro SD card slot. My partner has a tablet with expandable memory and I think every tablet should come with this feature (hello Apple!). It is so easy and cheap to expand the memory on your tablet yourself.

As for accessories, you will receive an AC adapter, USB cable, and a matching case and keyboard. You can choose from five different colour schemes, all of which appear to be in stock right now.

I think this is a great gift for younger kids because the tablet is relatively inexpensive and it comes with all the basic needs like Wi-Fi, a camera, and access to games. On top of it, children often want accessories. This tablet already comes with a case to keep your child from damaging their new tablet and it comes with a keyboard that will make it easier for your child to learn typing skills. I like how you can choose your child’s favourite colour combination for an even more personalized gift. The expandable memory is my favourite feature as apps can take up a lot of memory so up to 32GB is the best feature.

This is one of Walmart Canada’s early Black Friday deals and I assume these will sell out quickly. Pick one or two up before they do.

The Source: Supertooth Disco 3 Wireless Speaker $49.99 & Free Shipping

The Source has a nice deal on the Supertooth Disco 3 wireless speaker that not only looks great, but will also blast your music from here to infinity. The source has the Supertooth Disco 3 speakers on sale for $49.99, when they regularly retail for $79.99. Even better, you will receive free shipping as your cart costs over $20.

You do have some choices here. There are three colours included in this sale:

These portable speakers come equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 with 12 Watts RMS. They have two speakers on the front and a bass system on the back of the unit. Stream your music to the device wirelessly for hours of enjoyment. The battery is rechargeable making it easy to maintain your unit without having to spend extra money on batteries.

Now, it is hard to do thorough price comparing when looking at wireless speakers, as they seem to be sold almost everywhere. However, I did check out some of the main competitors and here is what they are selling this unit for:

  • $73.20 @ Amazon Canada
  • $69.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $79.99 @ Staples Canada

I will admit that my idea of a wireless speaker probably retails upwards of $200. However, my budget does not always match what I want so I actually own a speaker that retailed for under $100 *ye gasp!*. The quality is rather good and I am very happy with being able to transport the speaker with me. I like listening to my music when I am in a hotel, visiting family, or just around the house. The wireless speaker is far better than my computer’s speakers are and I can take just the speaker into the bathroom while I have a bath instead of taking my phone.

While there are not many reviews on our websites, RoundReviews in the UK had this to say:

the Disco 3 is competitively priced and is definitely up there with the similarly priced speakers. Overall it performs well in all areas and with a nice range of colours to choose from it’ll appeal to most people. The battery life of this device is also something to point out as its very impressive lasting up to 15 hours on a medium volume.

This portable speaker also looks cool. For tones that are more neutral, you will want to stick with grey. I rather like the honey colours as they certainly got it right! It reminds me of my beeswax candles that I burn while I have a bath. The glow is that fiery yellow.
