Fillable Shoes! What Would You Put In Yours?

Fillable Shoes! What Would You Put In Yours?

On our travels around the internet, the Bargainmoose team is constantly on the lookout for new and interesting stores to write about. While on my own virtual travels, I found a US based footwear store called Ashbury Skies. And thereon, I found some extremely interesting pairs of shoes. These are the Yru Qloud 2091 shoes which you can buy there. They’re $145, so while this isn’t technically a “deal” post, I thought it would make for an interesting article! Here’s what they say about the shoes:

The socks flips up, and there is trap door to fill up the bottom with whatever your heart desires.

Sadly, the ponies aren’t included in the above purchase.

We had a laugh about it on the Bargainmoose virtual office here. I’d like to fill mine with something like body parts of Frozen-themed Barbie dolls, or perhaps Lego. Eva was thinking candy or…

I would say diamonds but I don’t have that many diamonds.

Avigayil would like to fill her shoes with gummy teeth candy or fake eyeballs. Brooke wonders if they’d hold water and fake fish…

What would you put in your fillable shoes?

For Which Canadian Stores Would You Like To See Exclusive Coupons?

For Which Canadian Stores Would You Like To See Exclusive Coupons?

Here on Bargainmoose over the years, we’ve set up great relationships with some of the stores we write about, and often arrange MOOSE themed exclusive Bargainmoose coupon codes which I am sure you have seen us write about. For the current batch of exclusive coupon codes, we blog about them here and there are more on our forums here.

There are some codes which we’ve had for years and years, and there are some codes which are only valid for a day or two. Some popular examples just now:

Now, the codes may not always be super high, but it’s worth checking Bargainmoose coupons before you shop in case a code will save you a few bucks. You can see a small selection of logos from currently active stores in the image above… but there are around 200 current exclusive coupon codes on Bargainmoose.

Many of our exclusives expire on the 31st December 2014 so we’re going to have a big coupon audit and get loads more active Canadian coupon codes on site. The reason I am writing this post is that I wanted to ask you guys if there are any Canadian stores or boutiques which you regularly shop at, for which you‘d like us to set up an exclusive coupon code. If so, please write it in a comment below, we will check it out and reach out to the store.

For which stores would you like to see exmoosive coupons?

Well Canada Post, I think that’s a good reason not to deliver a parcel. Nice.

Bargainmoose Email Subscribers: Please Read

Bargainmoose Email Subscribers: Please Read

(BUMP) For the many years that Bargainmoose has been in operation, we have been getting more and more emails from people commenting that they are receiving expired deals in their daily Bargainmoose email updates. I want to do a quick post to tell you a bit more about this issue.

If you ONLY read Bargainmoose via the email update, you’re going to miss out on some of the best offers! We can only send the email out once every 24 hours, so no matter when in the day we choose to send it, you’re going to miss out on some of the short-lived bargains. For example yesterday, Best Buy had a one day only deal on their Macbooks and iMacs, or the Batman plushie from Walmart the other day, which only lasted a few hours. We’ve been seeing a lot of super-hot short term deals, which don’t last very long.

So we suggest you stop by the Bargainmoose website a few times a day to see if there are any good deals to snap up, rather than relying solely on the daily emails. If you ONLY read the emails, you will probably miss out!

Thanks Moosers!

An Avalanche of Boxing Day Deals!

Posted by on December 23, 2013 at 12:00 PM

An Avalanche of Boxing Day Deals!

It’s the Eve of Christmas Eve here on Bargainmoose, and we’re seeing a massive increase in the amount of Boxing Day sales information coming in, day by day. Even compared to last year, we’re seeing so much more info as more and more retailers are offering Boxing Day promotions. We are trying to keep track of all the best deals here on Bargainmoose, and this is a little post to explain our Boxing Day dashboard, linked above at the top right.

First of all if you look here on our hot deals section, you can see a reverse chronological listing of ALL deals posted on the Bargainmoose forums. From these deals, any that have Boxing Day content automatically feed in to our main Boxing Day dashboard, where you can see the main offers at a glance. From the dashboard, all the following pages can be accessed, but this is just to show you the kind of information available:

Then, on the bottom half of the dashboard is a list of deals, which you can sort by newest, temperature, or hot:

An Avalanche of Boxing Day Deals!

  • Newest simply means in order of newest to older
  • Temperature means by hottest overall temperate
  • Hot means deals over a certain temperature threshold

Lastly, we have our Boxing Day coupons section which keeps track of any mentions of Boxing Day in our coupon section.

There are many more deals out there than we can actually fit here on the front page of our blog. So, it is worth having a good browse of all the items above and seeing if anything catches your eye.

Here are a few highlights of things I am seeing at the moment:

Upcoming Boxing Day electronics deals:

Current Boxing Day footwear deals & coupons:

More To Come!

It’s only the 23rd of December today, and we’ve already had a couple of hundred posts tagged with Boxing Day Sales in our Boxing dashboard! There are literally thousands more deals to come over the coming week, so please feel free to bookmark our dashboard and check back often. And if you spot a hot Boxing Day deal yourself, please tell us about it.

Happy shopping Moosers!

A Bit of a Change!

Posted by on December 12, 2013 at 1:05 PM

Good afternoon Moosers! If you’re on Bargainmoose reading this blog post just now, you might notice that there’s a bit of a change on site. We’ve going through a small redesign and tinkering with a few things on site. You’ll see that our header has been spruced up a bit, and there’s a new search box up there to make it easier to find things on site. We previously had three separate searches for each section of the site, but we’ve combined them in to one box.

If you want to use the search box to find the latest coupons for a particular store, just type the first few letters of the store name and you should see it appear in the dropdown like this:

A Bit of a Change!

We’re rolling out some changes over the next few weeks, so you will probably notice some other small improvements on site.

If you happen to spot any issues or problems, feel free to leave a comment below or hit the contact us link at the bottom of the page. Thanks!

Today, the 9th December 2013 is our 3rd annual No Minimum Monday shopping event! We’ve been mentioning it here on Bargainmoose over the last few weeks, and it has finally arrived. We’ve put together a load of Canadian stores who will offer you completely free shipping with no minimum spend – many of them for TODAY only. This is the perfect time to catch up on your Christmas shopping, without having to worry about shipping fees.

Throughout the day, the Bargainmoose authors will be blogging a few of the individual deals to highlight the best offers, but make sure you head to the main page linked above to see all the different deals. We’re adding more coupons through the morning as well…. Some deals aren’t yet active. Check back through the day!
