David’s Tea: Free Tea For Kids July 11-12 (In-Stores ONLY)

Posted by on July 11, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Davids Tea: Free Tea For Kids July 11 12 (In Stores ONLY)

What are your plans for the weekend? If they involve leaving the house (as they should with the nice weather!), then make sure to stop by a David’s Tea store to get free tea for your kids.

It’s too bad that this offer doesn’t extend to adult tea orders but hey, a freebie is a freebie!

On their David’s Tea’s Facebook, where this deal was original posted, the only specification is that the free tea is for kids aged 12 and under. This makes me wonder if I would be able to get a drink for my one year old and then secretly drink it myself… just kidding! Davids Tea: Free Tea For Kids July 11 12 (In Stores ONLY)

Personally, I think this is a fantastic opportunity to bond with your kids and get some sunshine. There is no mention on their Facebook as to whether this offer is only restricted to hot teas, so my assumption would be that you could ask for an iced tea for your kid(s) and maybe even grab a couple of sips for yourself when they’re not looking.

Speaking of David’s Tea, did you know that you can also shop online at their site? As you can see from our David’s Tea coupon page for them, they offer free shipping on orders over $50, 3 free samples with every order and they have a slew of web only specials to choose from that you wouldn’t be able to get in-stores. It may be the middle of summer, but you could for instance pick up tea for the tree on sale for just $3 (50% off). You can either get the santa’s secret, the sleigh ride or the eggnog and all of these basically include a sample of tea within a lovely limited edition printed tin ornament.

There are also a two teas at 40% off: the bubbi’s baklava, on sale for $28.50 (was $47.50) and the cocomint cream, which come down to just $22.50 (was $37.50) for 250g.

Be sure to also read Brooke’s post about the different daily freebies you can get at 7-Eleven until July 17th!

7-Eleven Canada: A Different Freebie Each Day For A Week Starting Today

Posted by on July 11, 2015 at 7:00 AM

7 Eleven Canada: A Different Freebie Each Day For A Week Starting Today

7- Eleven happens to share my birthday, and to celebrate they have a week stocked full of freebies. Be sure to download the 7-Eleven mobile app to reap the benefits, especially if you live close enough to walk to get some daily exercise while enjoying the freebies.

So all you need to do is download the 7-Eleven mobile app to your smartphone, and find your local 7-Eleven store. Then you can redeem the freebie of the day for the entire week. Just redeem your freebie each day once you have reached the store, since once you click “redeem” you will only have 15 minutes to claim the offer.

So here is what this week full of freebies at 7-Eleven Canada looks like:

July 11th: Free small Birthday Slurpee
July 12th: Free Big Gulp
July 13th: Free Cheddar Smokie
July 14th: Free 7-Select Water
July 15th: Free Chicken Kebob
July 16th: Free 7-Select soft drink
July 17th: Free medium Slurpee

Too bad, no free Reese Peanut Butter cups this time – but the other freebies still sound good. You really can’t complain about free things for an entire week. I just started that 7 Day Cabbage Diet that has been going viral around Facebook or I would be in 7-Eleven daily myself to get some free stuff. For one, today is my birthday so a free small Birthday Slurpee would be perfect.

Don’t delete the app when the week is over though. The 7-Eleven Canada app will provide you with freebies almost every Friday, as well as discounts on popular items. You will often find BOGO deals too. I know I definitely check my 7-Eleven app every Friday morning to see what freebie is to be had. The freebies range from water to slurpees to free chocolate. So, happy birthday 7-Eleven and thanks for the freebies to celebrate!

What freebies will you snag this week at 7-Eleven, Moosers?

Google Play: FREE Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake App ($5.80 Value)

Posted by on July 10, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Google Play: FREE Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake App ($5.80 Value)

Google Play Canada has a new app of the week for you to add to your collection. Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake was $5.80, but is now free of charge. The promo should trigger through the link below, but I have included the coupon code in case you need to put it in.

Click here to download Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake @ Google Play now

  • Coupon Code: MONSTERSCAKEFREE
  • Discount: free game
  • Expiry: Unknown

There will be a pop-up that offers you the game free of charge. To read more about this cute little game that is perfect for children, click here. The game sounds pretty darn awesome for kids of all ages. The description on Google Play says:

Oodles of friendly monsters will join Niko’s quest and use their kooky powers to demolish obstacles and humiliate enemies. Hordes of evil monsters will cause mayhem and generally be jerkfaces, but that’s nothing you can’t fix with headbutts, frost breath, stink clouds and rainbow barf.

There are plenty of environmental puzzles and bonus challenges where you can earn stars. Help other monsters and people to earn points on side quests. While not necessary, these quests can add a lot of extra time and play to the game. The monsters, costumes, music, scenery and everything is fun and endearing. In fact, with over 2000 reviews, this game has received an average rating of 4.3/5 stars. Most people rave about the game and some even compare the quirky dialogue to Adventure Time. This one reviewer agrees:

Charming design and humor. Loaded with clever puzzles. The game is just a delight to look at. Dialogue reminds me of Adventure Time, which is hilarious and endearing to me, but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. So much content here including collectibles and sidequests.

I think this game looks adorable and I think that I would enjoy this as much as kids would! I am all for monsters and when rainbows, cake, and puzzles are involved – how can I say no? The price is also just right – free.

Google Play is now offering one free family-friendly app per week. I believe these change over on Thursday, so visit Google Play every week for a new app for your Android phone. I am sure your kids will enjoy the change.

Posted by on July 10, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Swiss Chalet Canada: Get a Free Appetizer By Signing Up

There is nothing better than free stuff, especially free food. Swiss Chalet Canada has an ongoing offer where you can get a free appetizer just by signing up for their e-newsletter “Rotisserie Mail”.

Once you sign up for the Swiss Chalet Canada Rotisserie Mail, you will receive an e-coupon for a free appetizer. This coupon can be printed or shown to your waitress on your mobile device when you visit Swiss Chalet Canada for your next meal. Signing up for the e-newsletter is quick and simple, well worth it if you ask me.

Not only will you get a free appetizer e-coupon when you sign up for the SwissChalet.ca newsletter, but in the future you will also receive their current coupons and promotions. If you are a Swiss Chalet Canada fan like I am, then this is a necessity. Their two can dine coupons are great for dates with your hubby, and sometimes they even offer free desserts.

Swiss Chalet Canada has so many great starters to choose from, you won’t be disappointed. Of course you will need to also purchase an adult entree to redeem this freebie. The coupon is valid for any appetizer with a maximum value of $6.99 The starters you can get from Swiss Chalet include:

  • Chalet Wings
  • Garlic Cheese Loaf
  • Rotisserie Chicken Spring Rolls (my fav)
  • Caesar Salad
  • Cheese Perogies
  • Garden Salad
  • Chalet Chicken Soup
  • Greek Salad Starter
  • 4-Cheese Spinach Dip

I always order the Rotisserie Chicken Spring Rolls to tide me over until my actual meal arrives. They are delicious and my whole family seems to enjoy them. They will be even better knowing they are absolutely free with my purchase since I signed up for the Swiss Chalet Canada newsletter online. Your coupon will be valid for dine-in and walk-in take out only.

As far as the main course goes, I always order the Hot Chicken Sandwich. I have been trying to watch my eating habits so I may throw that menu item to the curb and try something with a little less carbs, but it will still hold a special place in my stomach.

So Moosers, which free appetizer will you enjoy from Swiss Chalet Canada?

FREE Zuma’s Revenge Game @ Origin.com ($5 Value)

Posted by on July 8, 2015 at 3:00 PM

FREE Zumas Revenge Game @ Origin.com ($5 Value)

Origin.com is back with their free movie of the month. This month, enjoy a free copy of Zuma’s Revenge. That is free to download – not just to play – as you now own it.

This game is compatible with both Mac and PC computers. I know some of the previous games have been a bit old (mid-90s) but this game is just from 2009. It is also made by the legendary PopCap Games studio that has made other fantastic titles such as Bejeweled and Plants vs. Zombies.

This game is a sequel to the original Zuma. You play the role of a fearless frog firing stone spheres to destroy a deadly stream of balls *gasp*! There are over 60 levels with hidden traps and challenges you must conquer. According to the game description:

Slide and hop for smarter shots; hit targets for exotic bonuses; detonate new power-up balls; battle six imposing tiki bosses and guide your agile amphibian to victory in four all new game modes!

You are going to love the number of levels in this game and the six mini-games where you need to beat bosses! There are sweet power ups and different game play options like lily-pad hopping and slide aiming. In the 60 levels, you will enjoy 70 new challenges in different places like the Jungle if Mystery, Lost City, Mosquito Coast (yummy), and more. If you beat 10 levels in a row, you will have run the Iron Frog gauntlet!

Once you have defeated all 60 levels and are convinced this game is too easy, go back and play the game in Heroic Frog mode for a bigger challenge.

While I did not find this game many other places, Big Fish Games does sell the full version for $10.21 CAN. The game looks like a lot of fun and a great way to relax (and waste time). One reviewer on Big Fish Games said:

Ah, my first marble popper game! Received this one as a Christmas gift, and found I stayed up all night playing it. Addicting, rewarding, frustrating. So in a world: GREAT! What a beautiful game, plus I think my reflexes and hand to brain coordination has improved!

I just love freebies that are fun and rewarding. Hope you enjoy this one my dear Moosers! I will be downloading the game in a few minutes as i cannot resist such a great deal.

Free Fries On National Fry Day @ New York Fries Canada

Posted by on July 8, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Free Fries On National Fry Day @ New York Fries Canada

National Fry Day is coming up on July 13th – do you know what that means? New York Fries Canada is offering free fries! All members of the New York Fries Fry Society loyalty program will receive free fries. Be sure to sign up for the Fry Society before July 12th to get this offer.

Everything tastes better when it is free, and New York Fries always tastes good. While my diet is going to kick my butt for redeeming this offer, my taste buds are going to thank me. Join the Fry Society by the 12th of July at 11:59 PM EST and on July 13th you will have a free order of regular fries loaded onto your Fry Society member card. These free fries can be claimed anytime until the 31st of July, 2015 so you have lots of time to redeem your freebie.

My favourite option from New York Fries has to be their Pulled Pork Fries. I am addicted to pulled pork and this delicious treat satisfies my addictions. I am saying “treat” because my thighs would tell on me if I ate this meal too often. But I can never turn down a good freebie, so I will join the Fry Society and claim my free regular fries from NYF next time I am shopping at the mall with my kiddo.

Joining the Fry Society Loyalty Program has even more rewards than these free regular fries. It is free to join and you will receive plenty of perks such as:

  • earn 1 point for every purchase
  • after 10 purchases, you can choose any one item off the menu for free
  • get a free poutine when you preload $25 on your Fry Society card
  • free regular fries on your birthday
  • double points opportunities
  • and more

If you have an iPhone, you won’t even need to download the New York Fries mobile app. You can just add your New York Fries Fry Society Card to Passbook and redeem your freebies there. Seems pretty simple to get some free fries, right?

Moosers, what is your favourite food from New York Fries Canada?

Amazon Canada: The Counting Kingdom Educational Child App For Free!(EXPIRED)

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 5:23 PM

Amazon Canada: The Counting Kingdom Educational Child App For Free!(EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada keeps impressing me with their free downloads of apps and comics lately. Right now you can download The Counting Kingdom for absolutely free through Amazon.ca.

If you have a child between the ages of 6 and 8, then you may appreciate this new app available for free through Amazon.ca. The Counting Kingdom is an educational app for boys and girls and is all about math. Make math a little more fun with 30 different levels of game play. This educational app would have normally cost you $3.67, but now it is available to download for free.

If you are a parent that is looking to strengthen your kiddo’s math skills, then let this app help you with adorable monsters, exciting games and more. Add the cute monsters together to cast spells that will defend the Math Kingdom. There are 5 different regions of the kingdom with 30 levels to complete. Each level is distinct and colourful to keep your child’s interest. The game starts off with simple math so that it is easy for your child to catch on and get into the game. Soon your child will be making bigger sums and longer equations. That sounds wonderful doesn’t it? In my opinion, I would much rather that my kid plays a game like this than a game like Flappy Birds or Angry Birds. Reviews say that the music, sound effects and graphics are all pretty good.

Just a heads up, the game will ask for Internet Access and Precise Location Permissions, but it doesn’t actually use them. You will need to download the Amazon Appstore to benefit from this free download. The catch is that if you delete the Amazon Appstore, you will lose this app and any others you download from the Amazon Appstore. The Amazon Appstore is only available to Androids with a minimum operating system of 2.3.

Breck’s Bulbs: FREE Las Vegas Daffodil Bulbs (Pay Shipping) – $24 Value

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Brecks Bulbs: FREE Las Vegas Daffodil Bulbs (Pay Shipping)   $24 Value

Breck’s Bulbs is offering FREE Las Vegas Daffodil Bulbs in packs of five. These bulbs are valued at $23.99. You can either purchase them alone – and pay $7.95 shipping – or combine them with your next order.

These bulbs will ship in fall as the months of July and August are too hot to ship plants. However, you can place your order now. While I like the idea of just paying shipping and getting the bulbs for free, I highly recommend combining this freebie with your next order at Breck’s Canada.

Breck’s Canada gives out $35 off $75 coupons to new newsletter subscribers. This means, you can save a bundle on your order and you can also get a set of Daffodil bulbs free. I think this is the better combination of deals. The $35 off $75 coupon you receive will be valid on sale items as well.

Speaking of sales, you can save on plenty of items including, but not limited to, bulbs. In the Christmas in July sale, you can pick up Christmas themed accessories and trinkets up to 80% off their original price. This Corkcicle Wine Chiller was $24.99 and is now $4.99. That could be useful all year around – especially in the heat of summer.

There are also some extraordinary flower deals as well. Jan Bos Hyacinth is on sale from $17.99 down to $10.99 for five bulbs.

This stunning Mariposa Skies Reblooming Iris is on sale from $23.99 down to $15.99. This may be one of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. The deep blue to a sky white looks just gorgeous. I have always admired the iris.

For a fun flower, pick up the Ice Cream Tulip. Originally $24.99 for three, these bulbs are now on sale for $16.99 (3). The flower gets its name because it looks like an ice cream cone.

You can check out these and more amazing flowers deals in the Best Sellers section at Breck’s. Stack your cart full of discounted bulbs, add on the free Las Vegas Daffodil Bulbs, and then use that $35 off $75 promo code from the newsletter to stack your garden savings. Your flower bed will never know what it did to deserve such beautiful new flowers.

Totally Free Home & Garden Workshops for July @ Home Depot Canada

Renovating your home can be intimidating – whether you are looking at it cost wise or task wise. You can either pay someone big money to get the job done, or risk being on that TV show where they feature horribly done home renovations.

Each month there are different workshops available for men, women and children.

Build A Minions Scooter Kids Workshop (Saturday, July 11th @ 10 AM)

Build An Address Display Do-It-Herself Workshop (Wednesday, July 15th @ 7 PM)

Ladies! Here is some fun for you. This Do-It-Herself Workshop at Home Depot Canada will teach you how to create planters from simple materials like wood and fake plants.

Install Laminate Flooring Workshop (Sunday, July 26th @ 1 PM)

In this workshop you will learn to cut and lay laminate flooring within one hour. You will also learn how to undercut door jambs to make your job look professional.

Maintain A Deck Workshop (Saturday, July 18th @ 10 AM)

One of my biggest chores this summer is keeping the deck clean! I just want it to look new again, is that too much to ask? If you are in the same boat, attend this Maintain A Deck Workshop at Home Depot Canada and learn how to freshen up your deck in an hour. You will learn how to apply a finish remover, how to battle mold and mildew as well as how to brighten and refinish your deck.

60-Day Free Trial of Google Play Music

Posted by on July 5, 2015 at 6:30 PM

60 Day Free Trial of Google Play Music

As if in response to Apple Music finally moving to Canada, Google Play Music has doubled their 30 day trial to a 60 day trial. Receive two months of free music streaming and more from Google Play.

There are two different versions of Google Play Music. First is the ‘free’ version and the second is the ‘unlimited’ version. If I understand correctly, this promotion is for a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music Unlimited, which includes many lucrative features.

First, Google play Music allows you to store up to 50,000 of your iTunes songs and listen to them on any device: tablet, smart phone, or computer. You will also receive recommendations based upon your taste.

Secondly, Google unlimited offers you on-demand access to over 30 million songs for your listening pleasure. You can download songs to play when you are not connected to the internet. These songs will play add-free. Enjoy your own curated radio station with unlimited skipping songs. Receive recommendations based upon your specific music tastes as well. here is a quick info-graph on the difference between the free Google Play app you download and a Google Play Music Unlimited subscription:

60 Day Free Trial of Google Play Music

Now, your free trial lasts for 60-days at which point it will cost $9.99 per month to continue your subscription.

I think of Google Play Music Unlimited as sort of a cross between Apple Match ($27.99/yr) and Apple Music ($9.99/m)… I do think this promo is directly in response to Apple Canada’s recent offer for three months free trial of their music subscription service.

I think this offer is ideal for Android phone users as Apple has not yet created an iTunes for Android, yet! This is a great way to get music off the iTunes on your computer and playable on all your devices. With support for up to 50,000 songs plus plenty of access to online (and offline) streaming, you really cannot go wrong with a deal like this from Google Play.

If you have the Google Play Music Unlimited account, then let us know what you think of it! We are always eager to hear user views on tech and software.

Free Avengers Heroes Welcome #1 Comic (Kindle Edition) & Other Free Comics @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on July 3, 2015 at 12:12 PM

Free Avengers Heroes Welcome #1 Comic (Kindle Edition) & Other Free Comics @ Amazon.ca

Marvel fan? Lucky you! Today Amazon Canada has the comic Avengers: Heroes Welcome #1 (Kindle Edition) for free, and other comics for free as well. The great thing is that you don’t really need a kindle to read this comic for free either. You can use any device, just click “Buy now with 1-click”.

This 14 page comic would be great if  you are trying to kill some time while waiting for your doctor or appointment or when you are traveling on the bus. If you are looking to consume a little more time, or if you are a Marvel Avengers fan, then have a look at the other free comics in the list below. There is a list of devices that are compatible with this Kindle Edition free comic book, hopefully your device is included. The devices are as follows:

  • Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Touch
  • Kindle for Android phones
  • Kindle for Android tablets
  • Kindle for iPad
  • Kindle Fire

To get the free Kindle Reading App, just enter your email below the product pricing details and click “Send me the link”. In no time flat your email will have a message containing a link to download this handy application. Reviews say that this particular Avengers comic is a little juvenile and best meant as a primer comic for a kid. Luckily, if you feel that way too, there are a few other free comics available through Amazon.ca:

I am not particularly a comic book fan, but since these are free I am going to go ahead and download them. They are bound to keep me or my son occupied at a needed time eventually. The other Avengers comic books (Kindle Edition) on Amazon.ca seem to sell for $4 and up, so getting them for free is pretty awesome. Marvel & Avengers characters have been so popular too. Be sure to tell your hubbies about this offer if they are into super heroes.

Want Free Reese Peanut Butter Cups? Download The 7-Eleven App Today! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on July 3, 2015 at 11:44 AM

Want Free Reese Peanut Butter Cups? Download The 7 Eleven App Today! (EXPIRED)

What. Why am I sitting here?! 7-Eleven Canada is giving out free Reese Peanut Butter Cups today for their Freeday Friday offer. This delicious chocolate treat has to be my favourite and I need to get to a 7-Eleven today. Reese PB Cup… get in my belly! To get your free 46g Reese PB Cups, just download the 7-Eleven app.

*Drool* I love me some Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. Did you know that by downloading the 7-Eleven mobile app, you can get this delicious candy for absolutely free today? While quantities last of course. These beauties regularly sell for about $1.29, so while the discount is small, how could you turn down free peanut butter cups? The Reese Peanut Butter Cups 46g will have 3 delicious cups to share, or entirely consume yourself (like I will do). No sharing. Sorry!

As if this isn’t enough chocolate, the Hershey Store even seems to sell the World’s Largest Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Have any of you Moosers actually seen these in Canada? I just want to mash these into some chocolate ice cream and enjoy. Although I am not sure if they will survive the car ride home to make it into the ice cream. Be sure to enjoy this freebie guys, I have not seen 7-Eleven Canada offer these for free during their Free Day Friday promo yet.

While the Freeday Friday freebies are my favourite among the 7-Eleven Canada offers, their mobile app will provide you with many other discounts as well. These offers might vary a little bit from location to location, but for the most part they will remain consistent throughout all of our provinces. There are lots of offers that will include BOGO, freebies, discounts and more. Just click the discount you would like and enjoy. Just remember, don’t redeem this offer unless you are already near 7-Eleven because the offer will expire in 15 minutes after clicking “redeem”. The 7-Eleven App will even give you directions to your closest 7-Eleven store if you need.

Canadian Freebie: All Creatures Big And Small Movie Download @ Google Play Canada

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Canadian Freebie: All Creatures Big And Small Movie Download @ Google Play Canada

Here is a little freebie you might want to snag for the kids. Right now on Google Play you can get the movie All Creatures Big And Small completely free. You do need to have a Google Play account to take advantage of this deal.

This freebie today over at Google Play Canada includes the free movie All Creatures Big And Small in full high definition. This movie is a cartoon and starts during the story of Noah building an ark while the animals are boarding two by two. Somehow our two main characters, animals known as Nestrians, are left behind. Our heroes must now comically survive the floods and get to the top of the mountain to survive. Meanwhile the parents of our heroes who are onboard, try to turn around the Ark in an attempt to try to save their children. Though the film is set in the middle of a biblical story, it is a slapstick comedy at heart. From reading the reviews at IMBD, it seems this it is trying to be more funny and quirky from the animal’s point of view and less of a biblical retelling. It seems to be from the reviews that this movie has plenty of funny pop culture reference to keep the story light and moving.

Reviews over on Google Play are looking good overall, especially for a free movie. Movie watchers are honest in that this movie is a bit of slapstick with a side of cheese. I would not expect this film to live up to the quality we expect from Disney or Pixar, but it is a fun film for a rainy afternoon for a laugh. Here is one review from Google Play:

Hey, it’s pretty good for a free movie I laughed a good bit during it. It’s a good kid movie I’m sure. Plus, this is like one of the few movies that I’ve seen that actually have a G rating for the film.

You might have figured out by now if you are a regular reader that I love freebies. I was just telling Anna the other day when I was blogging about the free Chorus Spa and Wellness samples that I tend to be a little bit of a freebie hoarder. I will be adding this movie to my collection for my kiddo.

Amazon Canada: The LEGO Movie (DVD) Only $2.49 *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 1:28 PM

Amazon Canada: The LEGO Movie (DVD) Only $2.49 *HOT* (EXPIRED)

This deal is boiling HOT!!! Amazon Canada has discounted The LEGO Movie (DVD) from $15.17 down to just $2.49!

This deal is totally awesome! It is the lowest price this movie has ever been and I suggest picking it up rather quickly before it a) sells out or b) Amazon notoriously raises the price.

Amazon Canada: The LEGO Movie (DVD) Only $2.49 *HOT* (EXPIRED)

I never saw this movie in theatres, but I have friends who raved about it when it came out. They figured the ‘Everything is Awesome’ song was one of the most memorable parts of the song and I would catch snippets of it dripping out into every day conversation. I used to play with LEGO as a child, this I am sure i would like the movie. I have just never got my hands on a copy of it.

If you love this movie or want to see the movie, then now is your chance to buy it for the cost of a cup of coffee. Yup, it is THAT CHEAP. I checked out the price at other retailers just to show you how good of a deal this is, in case there was any doubt:

  • $13.88 @ Walmart Canada
  • $16.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $27.61 @ Staples Canada
  • $20 @ HMV Canada (or 2 for $15)

Essentially, this deal is smoking hot. You will receive the 2-disk special edition of the film. I know nothing about the movie actually, except there are some legendary characters from the geek world in it including Batman, Hans Solo, and Gandalf. Here is a rundown on the storyline:

…follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

This sounds like a really cool movie especially with such awesome geek characters in it. A lot of adults, as well as children absolutely love this movie as one reviewer at Walmart said:

Bought this movie for my grandson’s 6th Birthday and he’s been watching it almost every day

My friend Robert, who is a mid-40s child, also adores the movie and watches it endlessly as well.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. At this price, it just might be worth paying the shipping if that is all you want from Amazon Canada.

Microsoft Office: Free Word, Excel, Powerpoint, & Outlook Apps

My dear Moosers! Long have we awaited the arrival of decent word processing software for our mobile devices. Well, wait no more as Microsoft is now offering the entire Microsoft Office Suite as FREE apps that you can download individually.

Previously, you received these apps with your Microsoft 365 subscription. However, Microsoft is now offering the apps free of charge for all Android devices, iPhones, Microsoft phones, tablets, and 2-in-1 computers.

You can download the entire suite, or download each app individually. While I usually use the Apple apps on my phone, as I already purchased them, my computer is a PC and I use Word, Excel, and OneNote on it regularly. It is exciting to think that I can get the same apps on my phone now.

The Microsoft Office suite includes:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Outlook

Click the arrows beside each program (through the link above) to just download that program. The entire office suite is available through the larger download button.

I have linked directly to the android version, but you can download Office and its applications for tablets and Apple devices. Merely scroll to the bottom to change your device.

I just downloaded Word as it is a program I use every single day on my computer. From my understanding, the free version has limited functionality but should still be able to open and edit documents, as well as create new ones without the 354 subscription.

While not included in the Microsoft Office bundle, you may also download these other Microsoft Apps free of charge:

  • OneNote
  • Lync 2013
  • OneDrive
  • Skype
  • Yammer
  • OneDrive for Business (iPhone)
  • Office Lens (Microsoft phone)

I already use Skype – even though it is a major power hog – and just downloaded OneNote. Out of all the other programs that Microsoft uses, I probably use OneNote the most. It is excellent for jotting down quick note, doing calculations, creating tables to keep track of spending, time, etc. It is, essentially, Excel for dummies when you take advantage of its calculation abilities.

As is to be expected, these apps are quite large and require a lot of space. While the entire Microsoft Office bundle is popular, I would only download the individual apps you need to retain as much open memory as possible. With only a 16GB phone, these apps really take up room.

Note: you will need to create a Microsoft account to use these apps.
