Think Geek Coupon (US): BOGO 50% Off

There is a new coupon code out for Think Geek that will save you a bundle on your purchases for just a couple of short days.  Buy one item and you will get the second one for 50% off the regular price.

Click here to shop @ ThinkGeek.com (U.S.) now 

  • Coupon code: HEARTMOM
  • Discount: BOGO 50% Off
  • Expiry: 24th April 2014

They actually have this coupon code out as a promotion for Mother’s Day in order to get you to buy some Mother’s Day gifts.  This is not as crazy as it may seem.  You would think that at a store called Think Geek, there would not be a lot for mom but you would be wrong.  There is actually a lot of items that would make a great gift. They even have a list of the top gifts for mom!

The way this coupon code will work is you will get the lower priced or equal valued item at the 50% off.  This is pretty standard with any BOGO deal.

I love this charm bracelet that was $14.99 and is now just $9.99. I also like this Big Bang Theory sleep tank that was $24.99 and is now just $9.99.  Since both items are $9.99, I will get one of them for just $4.99 once the coupon code is added at the checkout. That means for both items, I will pay just $13.98!  That is a pretty incredible deal!

As for the cost of shipping, it will depend on what you buy and where it’s going.  All prices are in USD so you may be charged duties.

For this and all other Think Geek coupons , you will find them all on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.

Book Outlet Canada: 50 Healthy Eating Books on for 50% Off

Posted by on April 22, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Book Outlet Canada: 50 Healthy Eating Books on for 50% Off

The 50/50 section at Book Outlet has changed again and this time it is for just one week only.  Save 50% on fifty different titles related to the category of Healthy Eating.

I am excited about this sale because I have really been trying to get into shape and the most important part of that is eating healthy. In fact, they say the key to weight loss success is 20% exercise and 80% what you eat!

This sale has books starting at just $1.49 and the highest priced one is just $6.49, which is still a great deal.

One of the books that has caught my eye is this Combat Asthma Through Diet book that was originally listed at $14.99 and is now just $2.99.  My son has pretty serious asthma and although I don’t think his diet can cure it, I do think his diet can help it.

I also found this Cook This Not That cookbook that was $19.99 and is now just $3.99.  This is a very popular book that I have been wanting to get but is always too expensive anywhere I look. In fact I found it at Chapters Canada on sale as well and they still are charging much more at the price of $15.97! You would still need to pay for shipping, which brings the total even higher so I am really excited about it on sale at Book Outlet this week!

Like I said earlier, this time around these deals are only on for one week instead of the regular two weeks.  If you see something you would like, make sure to grab it now while it is still a great price!

The cost of shipping is $3.99 and an additional $0.75 per item.

Additionally, use one of our exclusive Book Outlet coupon codes to save another $5 to $20 on your entire order.

Sears Canada: 35% Off Gladiator Garage Flooring, Storage & Accessories

Sears Canada: 35% Off Gladiator Garage Flooring, Storage & Accessories

With Spring comes Spring cleaning and if your garage is a bomb and you’d like it not to be, you should check out the 35% off Gladiator garage flooring, storage and more sale at Sears.

My garage has never been show-worthy with stuff cluttered everywhere, dirt on the floor and vehicles haphazardly parked in there during the Winter. I’d really love to see it a lot more organized, neat and clean. We might need some help with this.

These Gladiator garage flooring tiles have excellent reviews and ratings and can be driven on right after their very easily click and lock installation. You can get charcoal or silver, but I think both look nice in a pattern. These were $29.99 for a four-pack, but now $14.99, which is actually 50% off, so a super deal.

If you need a spot to store your tools and more, check out all the gearboxes available, like this Gladiator 2 full door modular gearbox. It was regularly $229.99, now $149.99.

This Gladiator horizontal bike hook is totally handy for keeping bikes off the ground so you can actually park your cars in the garage. It was $29.99, now $19.49.

Sears offers free shipping on a $99 spend.

Sirius XM Coupon Code: Save Up To $100 On A Membership

Sirius XM Coupon Code: Save Up To $100 On A Membership

Use the promo code to save $100 on your Sirius XM radio subscription – either new or renewal.

Click here to shop @ Siriusxm.ca now

  • Coupon Code: SAVE50PA
  • Discount: Up to $100 off your subscription
  • Expiry: Unknown

Now, there aren’t many details surrounding this coupon, but we did receive a comment on our Sirius XM coupon page that this coupon in fact worked on a renewal and the person received $100 off. So, I’m not sure what the up to means, but you’ll have to try it for yourself when starting a new subscription or renewing.

I don’t have Sirius XM radio, although I think I would like it. I am the person who has their radio scan button constantly pressed as I look for a song I like or at least a station where there is no talk or commercial on at that moment. Usually I’ll get the last 40 seconds of a song before I’m pressing the button again. It is irritating for me and all my passengers.

If I had Sirius radio I know exactly what I would listen to, probably constantly: Pearl Jam Radio. As I am a member of Ten Club, I can listen to it on my computer, but not in my vehicle, which is really when I listen to most of music. In fact, I’m listening to it right now while I work, and I’d love to keep listening when I leave to go get my kids this afternoon. So, now I’m off to see if my husband would love to get me this for a Mother’s Day gift!

Reebok Canada: GoodLife Sale with 40% Off

Posted by on April 22, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Reebok Canada: GoodLife Sale with 40% Off

Get 40% hundreds of products for men and women at Reebok’s GoodLife Fitness sale on right now.

With everything from shoes, books to fitness gear, there are pages and pages of items that are 40% off. I can’t say that any one deal is better than another because everything is 40% off, no “up to” here. Although, I did notice some items that said 40% off, were actually discounted even more like this men’s Reebok One series down bomber jacket, which was $200 and now only $100. This is a fantastic deal if you need a Winter coat for next year. There are a few colours available – blue or orange with the print or green or blue in the solid.

As you Moosers may well know, I can’t resist a man in a good hat, and this men’s Reebok One performance cap is very sexy, plus it does a good job at being a hat. It was $23, now $13.80.

I was highly considering purchasing these women’s RealFlex Run 2.0 as they look good and are high performance. They are also lightweight, which is so important to me in a shoe. Unfortunately, they don’t have my size, but I will keep looking. These were $120, now $72.

This women’s Reebok One tank is perfect for the gym and I think I’d like both the pink and the blue for alternating days. It was $35, now $21.

Shipping is free, no matter what you order. Check out our free shipping page for more stores that ship without a minimum order or a fee.

Starbucks Canada: Bring in Your Own Reusable Mug, Get a Free Tea or Coffee for Earth Day

Starbucks Canada: Bring in Your Own Reusable Mug, Get a Free Tea or Coffee for Earth Day

Happy Earth Day from Starbucks Canada! Visit a participating location today and get a free tea or coffee when you use your own reusable mug.

It’s Earth Day today. I’ll probably be commemorating the day doing Earthy crafts with my young son, or maybe digging out our garden plot if it doesn’t rain (c’mon Earth, don’t rain, I want to plant my garden on your special day!). But these activities require energy, and I could use a little more of it. Luckily for me, there’s a Starbucks at the end of my street and they’re offering free coffee for Earth Day.

To get your free coffee (or tea) all you have to do is bring your own reusable mug or tumbler into a Starbucks location. This freebie is only valid on Starbucks’ brewed coffees and teas, so you won’t be able to get anything fancy with caramel sauce or whipped cream or whatever else you like to throw into your beverage, just good old-fashioned basic coffee or tea. Which works out well for me, as that’s all I ever get from Starbucks.

The promotion mentions that this free offer is only available at “participating locations,” so hopefully it’s valid at mine. They’ve posted it to the Starbucks Facebook and Twitter accounts so it should be pretty widespread, but you can always call ahead to check if you don’t want to be disappointed. You can find contact information for Starbucks Canada locations with the store locator on their website.

You can take advantage of this offer all day today for Earth Day (April 22).

KitchenStuffPlus Coupon: Select Two Items $10 Each

KitchenStuffPlus Coupon: Select Two Items $10 Each

Kitchen Stuff Plus has an interesting promotion on. Select up to two items from the promotional page below and get each for only $10 with the following coupon code.

Click here to see the items eligible for this promotion

  • Coupon Code: RHD416
  • Discount: up to 2 items for $10 each
  • Expiry: 27th April 2014

I picked out the KSP Crackle Creme Brulee Torch with Ramekin (Black) – Set of 5, which was originally $24.99. It is currently on sale for $14.99 and when you apply the coupon the set further comes down to just $10. Creme Brulee is one of my favourite deserts yet I do not have the necessary equipment to make it as it requires a torch to get that perfectly delectable crust on top. This set comes with four dishes and the torch so, in my books, it is a great deal.

For my second item, I chose the Toscana Porcelain Cake Stand with Server (White) because I do not have a cake stand and a cake presented on a dinner plate does not have the same grandiose appearance as one presented on an appropriate cake stand. I like that it comes with the bonus server because I also don’t own one of those. Like the set above, this was originally $24.99, is on sale for $14.99 and comes down to just $10 with coupon.

You can choose from any two items on the page linked to above. I suggest checking out some of the other deals on the Kitchen Stuff Plus website as shipping is a flat rate of $8.25 unless you spend $75 to get free shipping.

For this and other Kitchen Stuff Plus coupon codes check out the forum.

How To Save Money On Feminine Care Products

Posted by on April 21, 2014 at 8:00 PM

How To Save Money On Feminine Care Products

What got me interested in this topic is an article my husband recently mentioned to me about a brilliant man in India, named Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a revolutionary machine for poor communities to manufacture their own sanitary napkins.  In some parts of the world girls stop going to school once they start their menstrual cycle, and according to the article referenced above, “Approximately 70% of all reproductive diseases in India are caused by poor menstrual hygiene – it can also affect maternal mortality”.  That is very sad and eye-opening.  We are fortunate in the west to have a plethora of options available for purchasing feminine hygiene products.  Many of us assume that the money we spend each month on feminine hygiene products is a necessary evil, something which is difficult to save money on.  Fear not, bargainmoosers, I have some tips on how to save money on our necessary supplies.  The tips don’t involve using old scraps of material, these ideas are easy to implement, and some are even better for the environment.

The Diva Cup

I used a DivaCup for about a year when I was in university.  It is surprisingly easy to use and is extremely cost effective.  It costs $39.99 on Well.ca.  Additionally, Well.ca sells DivaWash, which I recommend to purchase along with the DivaCup to ensure cleanliness of the cup.  They have very particular restrictions around how to properly clean and care for the cup, so in order to get the most bang for your buck, take proper care of the cup.  In terms of cost savings, I find it easy to spend approximately $10 per month on feminine hygiene products.  $10 x 12 months equals a total cost of approximately $120 per year.  They recommend you replace the DivaCup once per year, and at a cost of $39.99, you will save approximately $80.00 per year by using the DivaCup.  Check out their website for their Q+A section, it is really informative.  I have a $10 gift certificate for Well.ca which I got through a WagJag I purchased a few years ago, and I think I will use it towards a DivaCup purchase.   There is a certain “ick” factor to using a DivaCup, but once you are familiar with how to use it, that quickly dissipates.

Luna Pads

Personally, I am not a huge pad wearer.   I have always been an athletic person, and have found that tampons are an easier option for my lifestyle.   With that being said, I know there are some women who swear by using pads for their cycle.  What are Luna Pads, you might ask?  They are a reuseable, washable pad system whereby you purchase pads and inserts which you wash and re-use.  To be honest, the idea of washing out my pad seems pretty icky to me.  It’s likely not something that I will invest in at any point in the future, although I could make use of the pantyliner kit.  Check out Luna Pad’s Q+A section to find out all about their products.  In terms of cost of Luna Pads vs. disposable pads, if we use a similar estimate to our tampon calculation where we assume we spend about $10 per month on pads, our total cost per year for pads is about $120.  The deluxe LunaPads starter kit costs about $130 and they say it will last for approximately 5 years.  This means that your annual cost using LunaPads is under $30 per year, or less than $2.50 per month.

 Use coupons and combine them with sales

Another relatively easy way to save money on feminine hygiene products is to look for sales and combine the sales with the utilization of coupons.  P+G  has coupons quarterly which are published as an insert, and there are almost always coupons for always and tampax products.  Usually it’s a coupon for $0.50 off per package.  I always wait until packages are on sale for $2.99 per box, and when I combine the sale with the coupon, I can purchase a box of tampax for about $2.50 per box.  Check out our coupon forum for more great coupons and deals.   Even if you don’t use a coupon, however, shopping for sales is the best way to get a great price on feminine hygiene products.

Shorten your period

Another, off the beaten path way to reduce the costs of your period is to attempt to shorten your period.  I have never tried to do so, but I am definitely interested in trying some of the natural methods outlined in this wiki on how to shorten your period.  I still have some red raspberry leaf tea from pregnancy that I will try during my next period.

Environmentally friendly options

Last but not least, many of the options we listed above are fantastic options to be more environmentally friendly.  According to sustainable personal finance, an estimated 12 billion feminine hygiene products are put in North American dumps each year.  We will soon be running out of space to store our disposable products.  It’s time to make a change.

As women we are blessed with our monthly visit from aunt flow.  I say this sarcastically, as getting our periods suck.  Try to save as much money as possible each month by using some of these methods.  Bargainmoosers, do you have any tips to save money on feminine hygiene products?
