LEGO Store: Free Robot with Monthly Mini Model Build

LEGO Store: Free Robot with Monthly Mini Model Build

LEGO stores across Canada are hosting their monthly mini model build where your child can construct a mini robot and take it home (for free)! This even is occurring tomorrow on Tuesday, March 3 at 5:00 pm until supplies last.

Evidently, on the first Tuesday of every month there is a mini model build where your child can build and then take their model home – for free. There is one free model kit per child and the event is open to children ages six to 14 only. This month’s model is a fun little robot.

There are nine stores across Canada and this promotion appears to be at all of them. Here is a full list of Canadian stores:

Alberta

British Columbia

Ontario

Quebec

You can keep track of what is going on at your local store by checking out the store’s news under the map and address through the links above. Currently, there is a LEGO DUPLO event on at Canadian stores where young builders can experience the wonderful world of DUPLO. They can come in and play with these oversized blocks designed for small hands. Children 1 1/2 up to five years old are welcome. This even is ongoing until the 15th of March so you can choose the best day and time for your child’s DUPLO experience.

I really love this promotion for two reasons. First, your child gets to construct a mini LEGO model and keep it. You pay for nothing and your child gets a new toy. Moreover, this event occurs every month so your child could feasibly receive 12 free mini models each year if you attend all of the mini build sessions. Given that this event is open to children six years old until 14, that is a lot of free models you could collect over the years.

These models are not available for sale and cannot be purchased so your child would receive a rare and limited edition toy.

Canadian Freebie: Stayfree Pads or Carefree Liners Printable Coupon

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Canadian Freebie: Stayfree Pads or Carefree Liners Printable Coupon

Ladies, I have a great freebie for you. Right now you can grab a free printable coupon from Save.ca for a free box of Stayfree Pads or Carefree Liners. You must have a Save.ca account and a printer handy to grab this deal.

Stayfree has a new campaign right now asking women to pledge to save the panty. If you join in, you can receive a free coupon from Save.ca. If you do not already have a Save.ca account, I highly recommend signing up as they regularly provide both printable coupons and coupons you can mail to your home free of charge.

Once you sign up to take the pledge, you should almost immediately receive an e-mail directing you to Save.ca. Use the e-mail link provided and sign into your free Save.ca account. Make sure your printer is on and ready to go. The first time I tried the coupon, my printer was off and it made everything freeze when it was time to print.

There is another coupon for $3.00 off Schick intuition razors or refills that pops up right next to your freebie coupon and may help you score another great deal. If you check in the general coupon section I am seeing other great printable coupons such as $1 off of Spinbrush toothbrushes or replacement heads, $1 off Arm and Hammer toothpaste and $.75 off Wasa crackers. I always try to maximize my paper and ink by printing off more than one coupon at the same time.

I love that with this coupon you can choose whether you want pads or liners. I am not a pad girl myself, and as a rule of thumb will not use them even if they are free. I still have an open bag of pads leftover from when my daughter was first born several years ago. I will use those liners though for those light days at the end of the month.

If you are not going to use these coupons, consider donating the product to your local women’s shelter or food bank. Sanitary products are often on the list of desirable items that are in demand.

Grab your free coupons now. They will only last for a limited amount of time and freebies tend to go quick!

Six Free Songs from Brit Awards @ Google Play

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 4:05 PM

Six Free Songs from Brit Awards @ Google Play

Google Play is giving out six free songs in celebration of the Brit Awards. For those of you not familiar, the Brit Awards are the British equivalent of the American Grammy Awards.

I am very pleased with this giveaway as the songs are not from obscure artists that no one has ever heard about these days. Rather, you are getting popular songs from major artists. All of these songs were recorded live at the BRITs.

Here is the list of songs you can download for free:

  • Sam Smith – Lay Me Down
  • Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream
  • George Ezra – Budapest
  • Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This
  • Royal Blood – Figure It Out
  • Take That – Let In The Sun

I only know the first two artists in the list. For me, this is such fortunate timing. While I was introduced to Sam Smith a bit ago, I only found out that he was the artist behind a few of my currently favourite songs. I will certainly be downloading Lay Me Down, as it is not a song I currently have. Sam Smith’s voice is amazing and I love the heart and soul he pours into his music.

Ed Sheeran only came onto my radar a month ago. A friend of mine, who loves music as much as I do, was sending me song suggestions and I was sending him suggestions too. In one way, we were playing “do you know this band” and in another, we were genuinely interested in introducing each other to new music. Ed Sheeran was a first for me as Royal Wood was a first for my friend.

This is a great list of songs, though I cannot vouch for the other artists. I suggest trying them all because free music is great. It does not cost you a cent and you can always delete the file if you do not like the song.

Canadian Freebie: Always Discreet!

Canadian Freebie: Always Discreet!

We’ve mentioned this freebie here on Bargainmoose in the past, but it’s quite a good one and worth another mention for the lady Moosers. You can order a free sample pack of Always Discreet – their sanitary product designed for bladder leaks.

It’s a pretty easy freebie to claim, just fill in all your details on the form at the link above and you will get your free within 4 to 6 weeks.

This reminds me of a thread I saw on Imgur here this morning… showing many text messages from males our buying sanitary products for their females. I’ve used an image from the thread above… and I had a few chuckles reading the rest of the items. I know that Always Discreet doesn’t quite fall into the same category as the aforementioned sanitary products, but it’s similar… and often expensive too! Enjoy your freebies ladies. Canadian Freebie: Always Discreet!

Free Stickers from Skull Candy

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Free Stickers from Skull Candy

I like the fun skater-style stickers I have seen from Skull Candy, but never seem to get my hands on any. Now you can grab a few of your own for free! You must send a self addressed envelopes, so this deal will cost the price of two USA stamps, $2.40.

Skull Candy sells headphones, ear buds and speakers. The company has a fun culture with a loyal following from a variety of people, especially skateboarders, snowboarders, extreme sport enthusiasts, DJs and a variety of other musicians. Their electronics are well known in the industry for great products with fun and funky designs. They have a loyal group of followers.

Want to get in on the Skull Candy culture? For the cost of two USA stamps, you can request some fun stickers from Skull Candy. I usually buy my stamps in a book as I have family in the US. If you were to buy two stamps they would cost you $1.20  per stamp according to the current postal rates to mail a letter to the USA. You must buy two stamps to send this to the states, as that is where the address is listed.  Technically this will also cost you two envelopes, but most of us have some of those already at home.

Here is the address to send your self-addressed envelope:

Skullcandy Free Stickers

1441 West Ute Blvd. Suite 250

Park City, UT 84098

Skull Candy stickers have most recently been spotted on the boards Canadian Slope Style Snowboarder Marc Mcmorris who won gold in the 2015 X Games. Norwegian Snowboarder Silje Norendal how also won a gold medal at the recent 2015 X Games was spotted with a Skull Candy sticker on her board. Stick your sticker on your snowboard, skateboard or on a binder for a bit of Skull Candy style.

I assume these stickers will have the skull candy logo. That means most likely the stickers should be the image of a skull. Skull candy might surprise you with some other designs, they do not specify what the stickers look like. They also do not mention how many stickers they will send, but I have heard rumor around the internet that they will often simply fill the envelope with as many as they can send with your stamp. Send your envelope and wait a few weeks for your surprise!

Free Bag of Premium Coffee from HP Digital Print Technology

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Free Bag of Premium Coffee from HP Digital Print Technology

Need a pick me up? HP Digital Print Technology is offering a free bag of premium coffee. Simply register and your free coffee will be on its way soon.

I love a good cup of coffee and I bet you or someone you know does too. I will never pass on a free cup of coffee. This offer is intended to show of HP’s wonderful print quality. The packaging on the coffee is printed using HP Digital Print technology. These look similar to me to the bags of coffee that you find in a hotel next to the coffee maker. I suspect they are similar in size but HP does not specify.

Now this offer does not come without its stipulations. The offer is eligible for individuals in the print industry in Canada. HP specifically mentions graphic designers, anyone who provides print services or print brokers. This offer is not limited to these specific roles, but they intend the offer to be for those in the print industry. When you fill out the form, it does ask for your business name. I wrote independent contractor in both the company and job title line. The form went through right away with no issues.

The form also gives you options so HP can contact you, with options that include by e-mail, phone or by mail. I suggested they could contact me by mail only but they also give you a do not contact me option. On the front page HP also mentioned that if you sit down with one of their reps, they will hand deliver a cookie to you. They do not give an option to sign up for said cookie presentation. I assume by checking that they can contact you, one of their representatives will be in touch trying to set up a meeting that would include the cookie. Once you finish filling out the form, the page will then redirect you to see all the different printing options HP has available for commercial uses.

Enjoy the coffee and admire the printed bag. Maybe you need some commercial printing done. HP could be your next solution.

Canadian Freebie: Free Office 365 For Students + Free 1TB OneDrive Storage

Posted by on February 25, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Canadian Freebie: Free Office 365 For Students + Free 1TB OneDrive Storage

Calling all students: you can get now get Office 365 absolutely free, along with 1TB of free storage!

Up until now, a free copy of Office 365 for students was only available to U.S. students but in an effort to become an educational partner, Microsoft has now made this student-only freebie accessible to a lengthy list of countries.

To get this offer, you simply need to input your individual school e-mail address. Microsoft Office’s system will then re-direct you to a download page. Make sure you enter your e-mail correctly because there no other way to get this offer otherwise.

Students will essentially be saving a total of $120 per year as Office 365 for home use would otherwise have cost $10 per month.

What’s included in Office 365?

  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • Outlook
  • Publisher

You can also use it on up to 5 PCs or Macs, which is pretty handy if you happen to have a desktop, laptop or perhaps even a third device.

1 TB Storage

On top of all of the included Office software, you will also get 1tb of free storage with OneDrive. Plus, you can also get an extra 100GB of free storage for a limited time if you’re a Dropbox user. Check out Avigayil’s post to find out more.

How Long?

With regards to how long you will have access to Office 365 for free depends on how long you have left as a student at a qualified school. Once you are no longer a student, your copy of Office 365 will be changed in functionality. Although you won’t be able to edit documents, you will be able to view them as usual. The extra 1TB of storage will also expire, so make sure to save all of your documents beforehand.

If your school doesn’t qualify for this offer, then you could check with them to see if Office 365 is offered for free separately. My former university, for instance, automatically offers Office 365 for free to all those with the school’s e-mail address. Plus, it’s possible to use it for up to 8 consecutive semester following graduation. Not all school will offer this but it’s worth looking into if your school doesn’t qualify for Microsoft Office’s offer.

Free $20 or More!

Posted by on February 24, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Free $20 or More!

We have a funky little offer for our lovely Moosers today. There is currently a class action settlement going on because a few companies allegedly fixed the prices of DRAM. DRAM is a component in many electronics including computers, MP3 players, printers, graphic cards, and more. If you purchased any of these electronics between April 1, 1999 and June 30, 2002, then you qualify for $20 or more back.

You can read an article about the lawsuit in the Ottawa Sun for more information on why this is happening. Now, you apply for the money via an online form. There are two forms to choose from:

Simplified Form

This form requires your name, address, email, and a declaration that you indeed did purchase one to four electronic devices containing DRAM between April 1, 1999 and June 30, 2002. This simple form will take around three minutes to complete and does not require any receipts or proof of purchase.

Standard Form

If you are submitting a claim for over $20, then you will use the Standard Form. This form requires your name, address, email, as well as the number and type of electronic devices containing DRAM you purchased between April 1, 1999 and June 30, 2002. You also need to provide some proof of purchase documentation, though they are quite flexible on this. Proof of purchase can be anything from a pdf of receipts, credit card statements, warranty documents, photos, and more. In addition:

If you bought DRAM or electronic devices containing DRAM for manufacturing purposes, resale or purposes other than personal use, you may receive much more depending on the amount you purchased and your position in the distribution chain.

Now, everyone who qualifies will receive $20 with the Simplified Form and over $20 for the Standard Form. For the Standard Form, your rebate amount depends upon what electronics you purchased. To receive an estimate, check out the rebate calculator here. If you are not sure which form to submit, check out the rebate calculator and it will tell you, based on your electronics, which form is best.

This is not quick money. Payment usually occurs a year or more after the deadline for claims. The deadline for claims is June 23, 2015 so you may be waiting a year after that or even more to receive your money.

In addition, it is a good idea to make sure you would have logically bought a computer or other electronic device then. If you are 18, it does not make sense that you were busy buying electronics at the age of five or six!

Thanks to MTL on our Bargainmoose forums for letting us know about this deal!

Canadian Freebie: McDonalds Small Premium Roast

Canadian Freebie: McDonalds Small Premium Roast

*** BUMP – it’s back! ***

This morning until the 1st of March, walk in to a McDonalds restaurant, order a small brewed coffee and then walk out. You don’t have to pay, you don’t have to buy anything else, because the coffee will be free.

You did hear me right when I said free. You’ll get a free coffee at McDonalds, just by ordering it. You can go back too, all day if you’d like really. My husband probably drinks about six cups of coffee a day, and these are small, so I’m sure he could down a good 12 free McDonalds coffees in one day if he so chooses to keep going back. He is often on the road too, so he could technically hit the drive-thru in our city, hit the road and progressively stop at each McDonalds on the way. It could be a challenge for him.

I’m sure he’ll end up ordering a Big Mac or a large fry or something else at one of the stops, but I’m sure that is the purpose here. He has also told me that McDonalds coffee is quite good, so it isn’t like you are getting free sludge, it is a tasty beverage.

I don’t have any other information for you about this free coffee deal, except if you drink coffee, go to it, get it.

Snap by Groupon: FREE Pledge Furniture Sprays / Floor Care Products via Cash Back!

Here’s a quick post to let you know of an update to this week’s grocery cashback offers. Snap by Groupon sent out an email to tell us about a cashback increase on their Pledge products, both floor care products and furniture products. Here are the details:

Click here to go to Snap by Groupon

  • Buy 1 Pledge Floor Care product & get $4 cash back – info here
  • Buy 1 Pledge Furniture product & get $6 cash back – info here

The above cashback amounts on these Pledge products mean that you’re more than likely going to get these groceries for FREE at most retailers! Just to show you a rough price, the cost of this Pledge furniture polish is $5.47 online at Walmart. I’m not sure if it’s the same price in-store, it also probably varies by location too. But even so, that would work out to be free!

In case you haven’t used Snap before, all you have to do is buy these items in-store at a retailer in Canada. Then, you upload a photo of your receipt to Snap who will credit you with the cashback amounts. As long as the price you pay for the item is less than the cashback amount, then it works out to be free for you. Snap by Groupon: FREE Pledge Furniture Sprays / Floor Care Products via Cash Back!

There are plenty of other grocery cash back deals from Snap this week, this Pledge deal is just one of the highlights. Some more examples:

  • Finish Powerball Dishwasher Tabs, Fresh Scent 60ct for $1.50 cash back
  • Air Wick Freshmatic Starter Kit for $2 cash back
  • LYSOL Disinfectant Spray & LYSOL Disinfecting Wipes for $1.50 cash back

Studio Tax: Free Downloadable Tax Software for Personal or Professional Use

Posted by on February 21, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Studio Tax: Free Downloadable Tax Software for Personal or Professional Use

StudioTax has free tax software that is NETFILE certified. This tax software will download to your computer and is certified for both Mac and PC computers. Pay absolutely nothing for StudioTax and file up to 2o returns. There are two different software packages depending on your needs: one is for personal use and the other is for professional tax preparers.

While the domains are different (one is .com and one is .ca), both of these tax software packages are for filing your Canadian taxes. Make sure you download the right software, as StudioTax Enterprise cannot be used for individual tax returns. To use StudioTax Enterprise you must be a CRA registeres tax preparer. If you are not, then be sure to choose StudioTax 2014.

This software does not run off a browser. Instead, you download the software to your computer. Unlike most paid tax software packages, you can file up to 20 returns. Most paid software allows up to eight returns. The StudioTax Enterprise software allows up to 20 returns and gives the option of purchasing a license for unlimited returns – should you need it.

StudioTax 2014 is CRA and Revenue Quebec certified for Netfile and printed returns. The Mac version is CRA certified for Netfile and print returns, but not for Quebec returns.

Now, if you have used StudioTax before, then importing your previous returns is simple. However, StudioTax does not support importing previous returns from other programs you might have used.

Studio Tax is easy to install as no name, phone number, address, email, or credit card number is required. There is also no registration, no license key, and no software activation required. You simply download and go. In addition, they will not harass you to upgrade or to pay for the software (or upgrades) at any time. If you do love the software and want to donate, they have a button for that.

I have not tried this yet, but I did read a couple reviews on other websites. Apparently, if your taxes are straight forward, than this software works well. However, if you have complicated tax returns then you may be better off with a software package that gives you access to an accountant as well.

Hey Moosers, have you tried out StudioTax before? If so, let us know what you think!

File Your Taxes Completely Free Online With H&R Block

Posted by on February 21, 2015 at 8:00 AM

File Your Taxes Completely Free Online With H&R Block

Mooser Greg emailed us to say he’s been reading our blog and sees that we are blogging quite a few free tax services. He didn’t want us to miss out on one more (because it is great to have choices!) so he let me know that H&R’s online tax software is absolutely free.

When I was a teen/young adult, I always took my taxes to H&R Block so I could get that instant refund. Little did I know I could have done them on my own and not sacrificed that percentage of the very little money I was returned. It actually was not as easy as it is these days since there really was no such thing as the internet. Now that I’ve aged myself, I’ll say the internet was probably around, it just was not mainstream yet. Like, when I was in college for journalism, there wasn’t even an option of the career path of blogger or website manager. Funny how technology changes!

Anyway, I’m sure we are super glad to have tax filing software at our fingertips and we are even more glad to have it completely free. I was skeptical for a second, wondering how such a large company like H&R Block would have free tax filing software, but like their site says – free to start, free to file, free for everyone. Works for me!

Even cooler, you don’t have to sit on your computer in the evenings figuring out all your deductions, you can do it right from your phone or tablet. If you have a public transit commute, you can actually sit there and do your taxes on your way to work. That’s what I call working the system!

They also say they are 100% accurate and if you incur a penalty or interest because of a calculation error, they’ll reimburse you that money. They also have what they call a refund-o-meter, which gives you real-time accurate calculations, so you can get super excited as you enter in your info (or cry into your tea, whatever).

Royal Bank Canada: Free $300 Cash with new RBC Bank Account

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Royal Bank Canada: Free $300 Cash with new RBC Bank Account

Sign up for a new RBC all-inclusive bank account to receive $300 cash deposited into your account come June. You will need to complete one of two transactions in order to qualify for the free money.

Allow me to walk you through this promotion. First, you can select one of two RBC all-inclusive accounts:

RBC Signature No-Limit Banking

This bank account costs $14.95 per month or $10.95 if you have two other RBC accounts/credit cards. The account includes unlimited debits, 15 free Interac e-Transfers per month, and access fees refunded when you use an ATM at another bank. In addition, you will receive a $39 rebate on the annual fee of any eligible RBC credit card if you choose to get one.

RBC VIP Banking

This bank account costs $30 per month or $22.50 when you have two other accounts with Royal Bank. The account has both unlimited debits and unlimited free Interact e-Transfers each month. All access fees are fully refunded when you use this card at another bank. When you apply for an RBC Royal Bank premium card, both the applicant and co-applicant fees will be refunded (once). You will also get two additional Canadian and one U.S. bank account for free.

To keep your expenses low, I suggest the RBC Signature No-Limit Banking account.

After you register for the bank account, you need to complete one of two transactions:

  1. Set up one (1) regular payroll / direct deposit to your account OR
  2. Set up two (2) Pre-authorized payments

Once the transactions appear in your new banking account, you qualify for the $300 cash. You will receive the $300 cash bonus by June 15, 2015.

Now, let us talk dates. You need to sign up for the bank account by the 15th of April 2015. Then you need to complete the qualifying transaction(s) by the 15th of May 2015. Within a month of that deadline, you will receive the bonus. Now, I could not find any fine print on how long you have to keep this account open for to qualify for the bonus. Thus, it looks like you can close your account without penalty any time after you receive your bonus. Just a little food for thought if you are bouncing between banks.

Do note that while the $300 is technically free, the account you open does cost a monthly fee.

Canadian Freebies: Free 100GB OneDrive Storage for Dropbox Users

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Canadian Freebies: Free 100GB OneDrive Storage for Dropbox Users

There is a new promotion from Microsoft for the first 10 million people to take advantage of it. DropBox users will receive 100 GB of additional OneDrive storage for free. While the promotion says this is open to US residents, it also appears to work for Canadian residents as well.

This is the simplest of deals. Just enter your Microsoft account user name and password. Then let the OneDrive app access your info. Save the file to Dropbox and then sign on DropBox for verification as this promotion is only for those with Dropbox.

Canadian Freebies: Free 100GB OneDrive Storage for Dropbox Users

 

Once you save the document to DropBox (requires sign in), then your promotional 100GB of space will be applied. You will see the following screen when you have successfully scored the offer from Microsoft:

Canadian Freebies: Free 100GB OneDrive Storage for Dropbox Users

Now, the one step that ‘sounds scary’ is letting OneDrive access your information. This permission allows OneDrive to sign you in automatically when you sign into your Microsoft account. OneDrive will also be able to add or remove extra storage, which it needs to do to apply this promotion. Other than those basics, OneDrive will also be able to see all the email addresses associated with your Microsoft account, view your profile information, and view your contact list. Most apps require that info these days.

Your bonus 100 GB of space will last for one-year. In your account, you will see the expiry date for your bonus OneDrive space.

Now, if you do not want to pay for the 100 GB of space after the promotion has ended, you will want to migrate those extra documents to another storage solution. There is also rumour that this will be an ongoing promotion around this time of year – in one form or another. Last year there was a deal just like this for 100 GB of space so it looks to be two years running so far.
