Dell Canada: D-Link 24-Port Ethernet Switch Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 2:29 PM

Dell Canada: D Link 24 Port Ethernet Switch Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

In today’s 12 Days of Deals at Dell Canada, the D-Link DES 1024A 24-Port Fast Ethernet Switch is on sale from $69.99 down to $29.99 with free shipping. Sign up for the Dell Advantage to receive 5% back on a Dell gift card as well.

While I am familiar with a lot of tech, this is a new one for me. I have just never seen that many ports on an Ethernet switch before! Talk about all the networking opportunities. This is perfect for a small to medium size business or a gaming room.

I price compared with many other retailers and found Dell’s price the best. Here is what other retailers are selling the D-Link DES-1024A Ethernet switch for:

  • $48.99 @ NCIX.com
  • $49.98 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.98 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $49.98 @ Amazon Canada
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Walmart Canada

The above price comparisons do not include shipping charges for companies like NCIX.com or Staples. However, the going rate for this Ethernet switch is $50 right now.

Now, why would you want one of these devices if you have wireless? Wireless is convenient but you will always achieve faster file transfers and download speeds when you are hardwired into a device. When I am downloading a game on Steam, I always hard wire my computer in to the internet because I do not want to wait for hours or risk a momentary glitch interrupting my download.

I found a review for this device on NCIX. The reviewer said:

This switch works great. I’ve been using this on in my house to dispatch internet around the entire house (2 floors) and it works perfectly. Never rebooted since I got it and it was a pretty easy setup (out of the box, plug it and connect to my router and job done).

The reviewer most liked the fast and easy setup. However, he was disappointing that the Ethernet switch did not feature a gigabyte port.

Given the price point of this unit compared with the competitors, I think this is a great deal for anyone in need of one of these units. As Dell Canada offers free shipping on all orders, there are no extra fees beyond taxes.

This is a one-day deal and will end tomorrow morning!

BBC Movies & TV BOGO Free @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:57 PM

BBC Movies & TV BOGO Free @ Amazon Canada

I think I just had a heart attack. Amazon Canada has an incredible promotion on BBC series right now. Buy One, Get One Free on a plethora of BBC television series’ and movies.

I have never seen a promotion quite like this before from such a major content producer. The BCC produces some of the greatest content on this planet, including the legendary Planet Earth series, Dr. Who, and more.

This is a limited time offer; I do not know when it expires. The lowest priced items will be discounted to free with a maximum of three free items per order. As a massive fan of the BBC Nature documentaries, I immediately looked for the titles missing from my collection.

Earthflight: The Complete Series (BD) [Blu-ray] is a recent release by BBC Nature that follows the migratory path of birds. This Blu-ray set is on sale for the lowest price it has ever been on Amazon as well! Originally $49.98, Earthflight is now only $19.96. I would pair this DVD up with something similarly priced so I get the best discount.

I have long admired the Wonders of the Universe [Blu-ray] disk set. I was really into stars as a child, and that is the one thing that all my other BBC Earth sets do not really talk much about. That is no surprise as the theme of BBC Earth is ‘Earth’ and getting to know your planet. However, I want to learn about beyond my planet. Wonders of the Universe was $30.98 and is now $22.93.

There are three sets of ‘Wonders’ documentaries, each with a slightly different theme. Amazon Canada has two of the three, so I would also purchase Wonders of the Solar System [Blu-ray], which is on sale from $43.98 down to $33.45. If I purchased both of the Wonders Blu-Ray sets, I would only pay for the Solar System one and get the Universe for free.

I am overwhelmed by my choices! I have long wanted to purchase Madagascar [Blu-ray] as it is one incredible place. That Blu-ray set was $43.98 and is now $32.83. I could combine that with Earthflight above to receive Earthflight free.

There are over 600 titles included in this offer – so there is literally something for everyone. Even if you are not a BBC Nature freak like me, there are plenty of thrillers, drama, comedy, sci-fi, and more titles for you to choose from in the offer.

Amazon.ca: Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:19 PM

Amazon.ca: Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

A few days ago, Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS3 went on sale for $4.99 and sold out very quickly! Today, Amazon Canada dropped their price on the xBox 360 version. Call of Duty: Ghosts (xBox 360) is now on sale from $29.99 down to $4.99. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more at Amazon or pay around $5 for just this game to be shipped out.

A quick price comparison shows that this game is well below any other retailer’s price. Here is what other Canadian retailers are selling the xBox 360 version for:

  • $29.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $29.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

Used copies retail for $24.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. Essentially, you are getting a new copy for $20 cheaper than a used copy. Really, you cannot do better than that.

This game is really not that old. Released in November 2013, this first-person shooter video game is part of the Call of Duty line of games. I checked out the game on metacritic, where it has a 73/100 rating via critics. I did find out some interesting info on player development, which I thought I would share:

In Call of Duty: Ghosts you don’t just create a class, you create a soldier. Choose the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and you can even create a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier you’ve always wanted. And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs

I find it fascinating that you can create female soldiers in this game as female characters are often ignored in first-person shooter games like this. I really like this development, as I would love to create a kick-ass female soldier. I like males well enough, but creating a character within a game is a way of inserting yourself into the game in avatar form. I like to game, but i do not need a sex change!

If you want to see how this game plays on the xBox 360, there are plenty of YouTube videos to give you a walk through. I picked out this one, as it is nice and short.

Teva Women’s Tirra Sandals Were $99 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Live Out There Canada

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 11:47 AM

Teva Womens Tirra Sandals Were $99 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Live Out There Canada

I love the purple on the Teva women’s Tirra sandal. These shoes were $99 but are now only $50 @ Live Out There Canada. This order comes with free shipping with no minimum.

The past few mornings when I head outside, I have been greeted by the sound of birds. These are real birds that twitter and sing. These birds are not penguins. The ice is melting, the roads are giant puddles and I am thrilled to see spring. Yesterday I managed to go out to the car and grab a forgotten item with only a hoodie on. Three degrees feels wonderful after this cold winter we have had.

If you have not started putting together your spring and summer shoes, I have a great deal for you to grab today. These strappy athletic sandals come in purple and are available in the following sizes:

  • 6
  • 6.5
  • 7
  • 9
  • 9.5
  • 10

These sandals are meant to get wet and are designed to wick water away from your feet. The webbing and straps are designed to dry quick. Like many Teva sandals, these have a solid foot bed with extra grip to keep you stable on wet surfaces. These are perfect for water sports such as kayaking where your feet may get splashed a little. I love to wear my Teva sandals to the park, hiking and anytime we are at a festival or exploring. They provide lots of foot support for long adventures.

Shoeme.ca has this same pair of Teva sandals for $100. The Last Hunt has a few Teva sandals in this style but in other various colours for only $52.99. The few The Last Hunt has left are all a size five. MEC has a black and grey version with purple accents for $89.99. Cabela’s Canada has the same style sandals in a black and grey with purple accents for $99.99. These are a much better deal at Live Out There.

These sandals have ten happy reviewers who all rated them four or five stars. All of the reviews are really long, these people really like these sandals. Here is one of the happy reviewers.

The footbed on these are so comfortable – even more comfortable than some sneakers I own. They have a springy gel feel to them.  The straps on top are thin enough to be a little bit feminine, which is a nice touch. These are really great for kayaking (my reason for purchase), the beach, or walking around town or the campground!

This is a great deal on these sandals. I missed the last deal I blogged about for Teva, but I love the purple. I may grab these now to replace my older pair. My blue Tevas have served me well for multiple summers, but with free shipping and a great price it is time to upgrade.

Tiny TOMS Rain Boots Were $48 | Now $24.25 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ TOMS Canada

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 11:35 AM

Tiny TOMS Rain Boots Were $48 | Now $24.25 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ TOMS Canada

Select styles of Tiny TOMS rain boots are on sale over @ TOMS Canada. These boots were $48 and are on sale for $29.25. With the coupon code SPRING15 you can get them for only $24.25. Free shipping with no minimum is included with every purchase until the end of March.

Yesterday on the way back from picking up my daughter, she found a huge puddle in the parking lot. Luckily for me, she was wearing her snow pants this time as she gleefully cannonballed into the puddle. By the time we left, there was not a single spot on her below her armpits that was dry.

This was a good wake up call for me that spring is truly coming and I need to start seriously considering her rain gear.  I spotted these durable and adorable Tiny TOMS rain boots on discount today. These boots come in a variety of sizes and colours, so you will want to pay attention carefully to which ones you grab. The following colours are on sale:

  • Camo: Size 11
  • Purple & Green: Sizes 5, 6, 7 & 10
  • Multi Dot: Sizes 9, 10 & 11
  • Pink: Sizes 9 and 10

TOMS makes a good quality shoe, and I would trust that they make a pretty good quality rain boot. I have owned a few pairs of TOMS shoes and have a friend who goes out of her way to regularly purchase TOMS products for her kid. These boots also look comparable to BOGS rain boots which are a pretty well-loved rain boot for kids.

I have talked in past posts about how great TOMS One to One Program is. If you like to do a little good with your retail purchases, TOMS is a great company to shop with. For every pair of shoes they sell, they also give a pair to someone in need. They have given away over 50,000 pairs of shoes in South Africa and Argentina. It is almost like a buy one, get one free deal then.

If you were to go to Get Outside, you would pay $49.95 for these rain boots. Not many other retailers carry these rain boots. At BOGS you will pay $50 for little kids rain boots of a similar style and quality. At Softmoc.ca you will pay a minimum of $50 a pair for a pair of BOGS rain boots. Better to grab this TOMS style before they are gone.

The youth styles of these boots are also on sale, with a little bit of a higher price, so you’ll want to check those out if you have kids older than toddlers.

There are only two reviews for these boots on TOMS website. One person thought they were too heavy for a four year old. The other reviewer was thrilled with the purchase. You will have to use your own best judgement. Here is the happy reviewer.

We LOVE these boots and so does our son! He likes to wear them everywhere…even in the house in just a diaper. We’ve gotten tons of compliments. They are perfect for our Seattle weather. About to buy the next size up Tiny TOMS Rain Boots Were $48 | Now $24.25 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ TOMS Canada

I would grab these boots now while they still have the size you want. Durable, cute & ethical rain boots will not last long with spring on the horizon. Grab your favourite style before they are gone.

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Baby’s First Mobile and Bumper Sets

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 10:06 PM

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Babys First Mobile and Bumper Sets

Best Buy Canada is offering 50% off Baby’s First bumper sets and mobiles. Orders of $25 or more will ship to your home for free.

Mobiles

First off, let us look at some precious mobiles for your baby. The Baby’s First Musical Mobile – Safari was $39.99 and is now on sale for $19.99. This adorable mobile will fit on most cribs and cradles. The safari mobile plays a Brahms’ lullaby while your little one watches the cute little safari animals. A lion, elephant, giraffe, and a monkey swing from the mobile.

Secondly, the Baby’s First Musical Mobile – Owl Swing is on sale from $49.99 down to $24.99. I love the colour scheme of blue and yellow on this mobile and think it is my favourite of the two. The mobile plays a Brahm lullaby and your wee one will enjoy the owl and birds above.

Bumper Sets

Bumper sets come in matching colours and patterns to the above two mobiles! The Baby’s First Crib Bumper Set – Safari is an excellent match for the mobile above and will really tie your baby’s room together. Originally $39.99, the safari bumper set is on sale for $19.99.

As you might expect, there is also a sale bumper set to match the gorgeous owls. The Baby’s First Crib Bumper Set – Owl Swing was $59.99 and is now on sale for $29.99. The pastel yellow and blue colour is carried throughout the bumpers.

You will probably want to buy a set. The safari set is the least expensive – coming to $39.98 for the set. However, you want a set that you will like looking at for a couple years, so the owl set might match your tastes for. That set, when put together, costs just a bit more at $54.98.

This is part of a larger sale on Baby’s First items. There are many items on sale but these were the best deals. If you are looking for other matching pieces, be sure to check out the rest of the sale. Purchase sheets, bedding, crib sets, and more.

I tried price comparing these items with other retailers. I found a pink version of the Safari at Sears Canada for $39.99. I found bumper sets by Baby’s First for $34.97 at Walmart Canada. Overall, I am quite pleased with this deal and hope our Moosers love it.

Thanks to FeliciaC for posting this deal on our forum.

Apple Canada: Refurbished Apple TV $79 or New Apple TV $89 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 9:20 PM

Apple Canada: Refurbished Apple TV $79 or New Apple TV $89 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

There has been a price drop on the Apple TV. This device used to retail for $109 but has recently dropped to $89 new. For those of you looking to save a bit more cash, you can purchase a refurbished Apple TV for just $79 with free shipping.

Price drops are not very common at Apple, so this is rather sweet. Whether you are after a new model or a used model, the price is now more affordable.

We all know this unit. This is the Apple TV that lets you stream content from your iPad, iPhone, or computer. Not only that, you can use it to rent movies, buy movies, watch your favourite TV programs, stream Netflix, and more on the TV.

If you are buying the refurbished unit – have no fear. There is a rigorous refurbishment process to ensure the Apple TV you receive is in tiptop shape. All refurbished products qualify for Apple’s one-year warranty and their 14-day return policy. If this is not enough assurance for you, then you can also purchase peace of mind in the form of the extended AppleCare Protection Plan.

This is the lowest price that any Apple TV has ever been on the blog. As for the new TV, I once blogged about a deal where it was on sale (with coupon) for this price. However, that was quite a limited time deal.

I would love to get some Mooser’s opinions on the Apple TV. I have not bought one (yet), and am curious whether you guys think it is a good device. I do not watch many movies or television series, but I do have a few I cannot watch online that I like. In addition, I am interested in converting my favourite movies over to digital form so I do not fill up a shelf with stacks of Blu-Ray cases. While i still like my books in the physical form, I would rather have all my music and movies in digital form. What do you guys think?

As per usual, all orders ship for free at Apple Canada. Quantities of the refurbished Apple TV are limited.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Legend of Zelda Box Set Was $206 | Now $47 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 2:15 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Legend of Zelda Box Set Was $206 | Now $47 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

The coolest geek deal ever is at Chapters Indigo for today only! Pick up The Legend of Zelda Box Set: Prima Official Game Guide for 76% off the original price. This Zelda ultimate box set was $205.99 and is now $47.50 with plum rewards. Receive free shipping on this Zelda set as it qualifies for free shipping on $25 or more.

I have not played Zelda, but I know people who are devoted fans. One girl I know is making a Zelda Monopoly board with her partner. They are creating it by hand as a tribute to their favourite game.

This box set is every Zelda player’s dream. This limited edition box set includes six hardcover collector’s editions for:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
  • The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Many of these books are out of print so this box set is your only chance for buying them. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D guide has never been in hardcover before this set. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword guide has also been expanded by 100 pages of bonus material that you will not find elsewhere.

Not only are you receiving awesome limited edition books that are hard to find elsewhere, all the books in this collection are gilded. That means the edges look like gold! The box that stores these volumes is good quality and has an embedded magnetic clasp.

For serious collectors, an individually numbered certificate of authenticity will be included. They certificates are signed by Mr. Eiji Aonuma, the Producer/Director for The Legend of Zelda series.

Reviewers are stoked by this set! Here is what one reviewer said:


Beautiful gold detail, all books are hard cover and very durable. The attention to detail is amazing: for example, the border design around each books cover reflects the game each books is about (Wind Waker has wind motif, Ocarina of Time has ocarina and harp designs).

I price compared this Zelda box set with Amazon where it is currently on sale for $97.84. Barnes & Noble has the same box set for $113.91 US. One reviewer mentioned that the box set was on sale for $80 on Cyber Monday. This is the cheapest that this Zelda box set has ever been.

Lowe’s Canada: Up To 55% off BBQ Accessories

Lowes Canada: Up To 55% off BBQ Accessories

Although I find it sad that I think -2 makes for a gorgeous day, I can’t ask for a lot more in March in Ontario. Well, I could, I just probably wouldn’t get it! I had a friend on my Facebook get so excited about the rising temperatures we are experiencing this week, that he’s cleared off his deck and having a deck party this weekend. I personally would not go that far, but it got me thinking about all the BBQs that are going to get dusted off in the next little while, including mine. It also got me wondering where my BBQ fork is! I don’t have to worry about it too much, as Lowe’s has some great BBQ accessories on clearance, with up to 55% off. There are some hot deals to be had to get you prepped for deck season.

The first deal I’m going to alert you to is the Char-Broil 4-piece commercial series tool set. It includes spatula, basting brush, tongs, fork and a storage bag. Regularly $49.99, this set is now down to $29.99. The tongs lock and the basting head is removable for easy cleaning. These are made from commercial grade stainless steel and heat resistant plastic. This means that you know they will last and get through summer after summer of use.

I couldn’t find competitor prices for any of these accessories, but having a look around, I see that good quality BBQ tools are not cheap. I think this tool set would make the perfect inexpensive Father’s Day gift.

If you wanted a less expensive tool set, you could get the Master Forge 4-piece stainless steel grilling set. It comes with a spatula, tongs, basting brush and a headlamp. I’m sort of at a loss as to what you’d use the headlamp for, except I guess for night grilling. This set was $19.99 and is now $12.99.

I’ve heard that the best way to BBQ is to have a nice, clean grill and for that you need a Char-Broil nylon grill brush. This one also has a scraper blade. Regularly $14.99, it is now $9.99.

If you like to do fish on the grill, a Master Forge non-stick grilling basket could be your best friend. Regularly $10.99, it is now on sale for only $4.99, making it 55% off.

You’ll get free shipping at a $49 spend, so you’ll want to stock your cart with a few accessories to avoid those fees.

Walmart.ca Outer Edge Snow Moto Was $88 | Now $68 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Walmart.ca Outer Edge Snow Moto Was $88 | Now $68 & Free Shipping

The coolest kid’s winter toys are on sale right now at Walmart Canada. The Outer Edge Snow Moto has been discounted from $88 down to $68 with free shipping. The Snow Moto comes in two different designs: Spider Man and Snow Dragon Red.

These machines are ready to shred some snow! The snow moto has three skis for stability. Enjoy front flex suspension for a compare comfortable ride and an adjustable seat to handle kids of all sizes. The snow moto is designed for kids around the age of 9 to 12.

Your child’s new ride features pro grip steering and full functioning brakes so they can stop at the bottom of the hill. There is a tow rope docking station, which is very useful for towing a toboggan behind.

Trying to find a good price comparison proved near impossible. However, I did find the Spider Man Snow Moto priced at $95.99 on Sears Canada. In the USA, I found the yellow version for $144.15 excluding tax, duty, and shipping. This was at Overstock. Given Sears Canada’s price for the unit, I figured $68 with free shipping was a very good deal.

I really like this kind of snow toy, and I would have given a lot to have one of these as a kid. Depending on the physical maturity of your children, you may be able to give this to one a bit younger than nine. I think I could have handled this when I was 8 or so.

One reviewer said:

Excellent Product, my kids love them and they seem like they will last a very long time.

I think the Spider-Man graphics will be a favourite among kids, but I prefer the Dragon model. Black and red look so awesome together and I prefer the shape of the dragon front. However, if you have a little Spidy fan, the blue and red Spider Man unit is the way to go.

Even though these are fairly large toys, Walmart Canada will still ship them to your home for free. Pick one up before they go out of stock! Also, if you own one of these units and care to comment, then please let us know what you think of your Snow Moto!

Panasonic Eneloop PRO Rechargeable Batteries (4 Pack) only $15.99 & Free Shipping @ Dell.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 1:02 PM

Panasonic Eneloop PRO Rechargeable Batteries (4 Pack) only $15.99 & Free Shipping @ Dell.ca (EXPIRED)

There are a lot of rechargable batteries in this world, but they are not all created equally. Welcome the Panasonic Eneloop Pro AA High Capacity Ni-MH pre-charged Rechargeable Batteries. Pick up a 4-pack of these new batteries on sale from $26.99 down to $15.99 with free shipping.

I ran a quick price comparison and found this, indeed, the best price. here is what other retailers are selling the batteries for:

  • $27.51 @ Amazon Canada
  • $25.99 @ Canadian Computers
  • $19.99 @ NCIX.com
  • $24.99 @ Henry’s Canada

The above price comparison does not include shipping charges. NCIX.com may come the closest just in base price, but add on NCIX.com’s shipping charges and NCIX becomes one of the more expensive places to purchase these batteries. Dell Canada offers free shipping on any order with no minimum. This is certainly a large bonus for small orders.

There are many very happy reviews on Amazon, like this one:

I use these in my off-camera strobes and they are awesome. Fast cycle times and they can last easily through a day of shooting.

and…

replaced energizer batteries with these and they seem to hold charge much better. They also seem to have a longer life in electronics

I am a big fan of rechargeable batteries, but most of mine are several years old. As the technology becomes more advances, the batteries only get better in quality and have a longer life-span. These Eneloop Pro batteries promise up to 85% capacity after one-year on a shelf. They have a low discharge rate and will recharge up to 500 times. They also have a fast recharge time, so your batteries spend less time in the charger and more time in your electronics.

These batteries are designed to power high current devices like digital cameras and camera strobes. Other batteries might last for a few hours with such high demand, but these batteries are designed for this job. They will also continue to function and provide needed power down to -20 degrees. That means you can use them on warm days during a good Canadian winter, eh Ontario?

This is a one day deal only! This offer will expire tomorrow morning.

Sign up for the Dell Advantage to receive 5% back on a Dell gift card.

Walmart Canada: HomeTrends Storage Cabinet Was $158 | Now $75

Walmart Canada: HomeTrends Storage Cabinet Was $158 | Now $75

With spring comes spring cleaning and with that it could also mean organizing all your crap. I just cleaned up two of my boy’s rooms and realized they have way too much stuff and nowhere to put it! I could totally use something like this HomeTrends storage cabinet at Walmart. I could use a few of them I think! It was regularly $158 and now $75 and free shipping.

With a two-door cupboard and an easy-glide drawer on top, this cabinet could be placed anywhere in your home. It would be great in a kitchen as extra storage for all your kitchen tools and small appliances. I find a lot of kitchens don’t always have the necessary drawers that people might need. It could also be placed in a front hallway to place keys, hats, mitts, bills, etc. In Kristy’s article on curbing kid clutter, she talked about creating a drop spot at the front door and this would be perfect!

You could also put this in a bedroom or a closet for extra storage in there. I know my walk-in closet is a disaster and I’d love to use this for jewellery and accessories like scarves and purses. I could also use one in my youngest son’s room for all of his dress-up costumes, with the hats and face masks going in the top drawer.

If you didn’t like the look of black ash finish, you could always paint it with chalk paint or another stain to give it the look you’d like.

There are contrasting reviews of this piece on Walmart’s site, with it having each a 3-star, 4-star and 5-star rating. The best review said:

Bought this a month ago. Exactly as shown. Put it together by myself in about an hour. All parts were sorted, prepackaged and/or labeled. Cabinet is sturdy and attractive and prefect for my table linens. Love the sliding drawer. Have had nothing but compliments.

The complaints that the other reviewers had were that it didn’t look perfect and that it wasn’t sturdy enough. I guess it is a see for yourself type of deal. It could also be how the purchasers put it together. Overall, all reviewers liked the look of the piece.

Black Tweed Peplum Jacket Was $135 | Now $47 & Free Shipping @ Le Caniche Noir

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 11:21 AM

Black Tweed Peplum Jacket Was $135 | Now $47 & Free Shipping @ Le Caniche Noir

I love when I can find a good structured jacket with a chic twist. Check out the Black Tweed Peplum jacket that was $135, but is now only $47. Free shipping with no minimum is included with all orders at Le Caniche Noir.

Le Caniche Noir has just added some new pieces to the sale section. I love the chic and structured pieces that Le Caniche Noir offers, but their regular retail prices are not in my budget. Luckily for me and you, the sale section is right in my price range.

Take for example the lovely Black Tweed Peplum Jacket. This black jacket with white details would look amazing both as a piece for the office with slacks or with a pair of well-constructed jeans. Add a pop of colour from a basic plain top underneath this jacket, and you have an outfit that looks very chic without much effort.

While they are calling this jacket peplum style, the peplum draping is not as dramatic as I have seen on some dresses or tops. That means you should be able to wear this jacket in a variety of settings without compromising style. Even better, the peplum trend is very flattering to a variety of body types. With a structured top, bold black and white details and movement just below the waist, this jacket will show off some of your best curves. This jacket is currently available in extra small, small, medium and large.

Are you looking for a statement necklace for spring? Check out the colourful Crystal Flower Necklace that was $75 but is now only $26. This beautiful and colourful piece would be fun to dress up a plain top such as a basic maxi dress or wrap top in a solid colour. Make your outfit look more expensive and add this gorgeous piece. I will not tell anyone you scored it on sale. Black Tweed Peplum Jacket Was $135 | Now $47 & Free Shipping @ Le Caniche Noir

This pink jacket it so sweet for spring or Easter events. Check out the Pink Double Breasted Coat that was $239 but is now only $83. This would be adorable for a spring photo shoot. You would look smashing at your next brunch event, baby shower or wedding event. This is a very Jackie O or Audrey Hepburn style jacket. It is available in sizes small, medium and large.

It is still cold outside and I am still wearing sweaters. I love the Grey Knit Big Collar Sweater so much that I had to mention it. This sweater was $129.99 but is now only $45. This beautiful sweater is just my style with the soft chunky collar and the sleeves pulled up on the arms. This sweater looks cozy. Curl up with a good book and a cup of tea in this sweater.

These deals will not last forever. Grab your favourite piece while they still have your size. The last time I blogged about Le Caniche Noir, several of the pieces I featured sold out before the end of the day.

Spring is coming and so are all of your spring and Easter parties and events. Take advantage of this sweet deal and give your little boy a clean and fresh look for spring. This sweet little gingham bowtie is the perfect accessory to add a little spring color to your favourite boy’s outfit.

This bowtie comes pre-tied, thank goodness. I once had to tie my own bowtie when I worked at a ritzy country club and forgot mine at home. I managed to tie it after quite a bit of effort. I never forgot that pre-tied bowtie at home again after that! I can only imagine that both tying a bowtie and convincing a young boy to stand still would be next to impossible. This sweet pre-tied bowtie comes in the colour ripe banana in a gingham pattern. The bowtie is made of 100% cotton. This could pair with a white, grey or another light pastel coloured oxford shirt. The sizing is available in both a 4-7 and 8-14 size.

If you need something to pair with this bowtie, check out some of the other options in the boys clearance section. Try the Dressy Oxford Vest in grey that was $29.35 but is now only $7.56. This light grey vest comes in every size from extra small (a size four) to extra-large (a size fourteen).  You can also grab the matching Oxford Pants that were $34.95 but are now only $11.33. These pants are currently available in every size from size four to size fourteen. They have an elastic waist, but one the front have a zip and snap button closure.

I would also consider the Oxford Shirt, currently available in both blue and pink in the boys clearance section. This shirt was $24.95 but is now only $8.39. The pink shirt is available in every size from extra small through large. The blue shirt is available in sizes small, medium and large. If you have the right personality, the pink could work with that bowtie for spring. The blue does not work with the bowtie as well, but is a lovely colour. If your boy has blue eyes, I bet the blue shirt would bring out the colour in his eyes nicely for pictures.

The Children’s Place has some great discounts on clothes for kids. I always find that when they offer free shipping with no minimum, it is the best time to score a deal.  Free shipping is usually only available for a day at a time. Now is the time to snag your deals.

Consonant Skincare: 20% Off All Body Care Products + Extra 10% Off Every Hour For Up To 70% Off Total! (EXPIRED)

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

Consonant Skincare: 20% Off All Body Care Products + Extra 10% Off Every Hour For Up To 70% Off Total! (EXPIRED)

Consonant Skincare is currently offering a gamble of a promotion. Starting at exactly 10am EST, all body lotions and washes will be reduced by 20%. Every hour from then on, all of these body care products will be reduced by an additional 10% for up to 70% off in total.

Now, Consonant Skincare doesn’t specificy when exactly this promotion is set to end. So it’s either at the end of the final hour, while supplies last or at the end of the day. Wait at your own peril, but here’s the basic discount schedule we’re looking at:

  • 10am: 20% off
  • 11am: 30% off
  • 12pm: 40% off
  • 1pm: 50% off
  • 2pm: 60% off
  • 3pm: 70% off

This promotion is definitely cool but the biggest gamble is not knowing how many quantities are left of a specific item. So you could be waiting for the clock to turn to 3pm for instance, only to have the item sell out one minute before! Plus, we don’t even know if items will sell out quickly or not. In any case, it’s still a great promotion to check out and perhaps the best course of action would be to set an alarm to check back their page at exactly 3pm today.

I admit that I have never tried any Consonant products but just browsing around their inventory of body lotions and washes, the organic body lotion – citrus bergamot caught my eye. Originally priced at $22, it’s down to $17.60 with the 20% discount and could get reduced all the way down to just $6.60 if it doesn’t sell out by 3pm. It’s described as being formulated with antioxidants that condition the skin and leave it feeling soft right away. This body lotion has 4 reviews with a total rating of 5/5 stars with happy comments like this one:

Finally a healthy lotion that smells good, this time I got the largest size available with the pump. Every time I get out of the shower I lather up with this lotion, love it!

Sounds like a great product for sure, especially if you can get it for under $15! Consonant Skincare: 20% Off All Body Care Products + Extra 10% Off Every Hour For Up To 70% Off Total! (EXPIRED) Luckily, there are plenty more products to choose from, some with helpful reviews as well.

Shipping is free on orders over $75.
