Best Buy Canada: Xbox One 500GB Watch Dogs Limited Edition Bundle | Was $550 Now $400

It looks like we’ve stumbled upon another great deal for a current – gen video game system! Until October 2nd, you can score a nice Xbox One 500GB Watch Dogs Limited Edition Bundle at Best Buy for $399.99! The regular price for this bundle is $549.99, so you’ll be saving $150 in total – not too shabby! You’ll also qualify for free shipping.

This Xbox One 500GB system is a powerful new video game system that will certainly have an interesting slew of games coming out within the next few years. It’s still semi – new, so its best games are yet to come. The Watch Dogs Limited Edition Bundle, which normally costs $149.99, comes with the Xbox One version of the game and a slew of goodies, including an art book, 9″ figurine, vigilante mask, and much more.This Watch Dogs Limited Edition Bundle costs $149.96 at WalMart, but it’s currently on sale at Future Shop for $99.99.  Xbox One systems typically retail for $399 at WalMart and $399.99 at Future Shop.

With this deal, you’re essentially getting the Watch Dogs Limited Edition Bundle for free. You can’t go wrong with a free game, especially if it’s a limited edition version that comes with a bunch of goodies! I’m personally going to continue waiting for more games to be released for the system before I take the figurative plunge and purchase an Xbox One, but there are many great games that are currently available for it that are keeping many gamers entertained.

I’ve included a brief review of Watch Dogs for the Xbox One system from Gaming Nexus below:

With a deep storyline, plenty of side content, and a gorgeous rendering of Chicago to explore, Watch Dogs brings a lot to the table and truly unlocks next-generation graphics in a whole new way. Watch Dogs is a beautiful, mesmerizing title.

This deal is in effect until October 2nd. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Pinching Pennies With Cheap Homemade Meals: Volume 1

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Pinching Pennies With Cheap Homemade Meals: Volume 1

Budgeting. Saving money. Spending only what you need to spend. We hear these phrases often spouted by both informed experts and those who simply repeat things that they hear, but it is very important – especially when you have the responsibility of paying a mortgage or when you need to save up enough money for rent every month.

When you’re trying to save up some extra cash for a big purchase, whether it’s a new vehicle, the down payment for a home, or even a nice vacation, you’ll need to refer to the first 10 words of this article: Budgeting. Saving money. Spending only what you need to spend.

It may seem like a challenge at first, but it is possible. For the past 5 years, I’ve essentially been a freelancer. As those that have experience in freelancing know, you really won’t have a stable income – some months can be really lucrative, while others can be exceptionally slow.

Thankfully, though it took a few months to fully grasp and adjust to when I just started freelancing, I learned to embrace frugality, and I plan to extol some of the many virtues I’ve learned along my journey in these Saving Money articles on Bargainmoose.

There are many ways that you can save money during your day to day routines, but I’ll be focusing on pinching pennies with cheap homemade meals today. When some people think of affordable homemade meals, they may automatically think of an all-oatmeal diet, or having cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That really isn’t the case at all – in fact, you may be surprised to learn about some of the delicious servings that you can prep while saving a decent amount of money!

For example, let’s look at the situation that happens when you go to work each day. By the time you get home after a long day at your workplace, you’re tired, exhausted, and maybe even slightly cranky. Either way, your main priority at this time is to plop down unto your couch, relax, and finally take it easy.

This is why fast food can be so convenient – when you’re at your workplace and you’re just too exhausted after your shift to prepare a lunch for the next day, all you have to do is place an order at a Subway, McDonald’s, or any other restaurant that’s near your workplace. The same can be said after you come home after working all day – you may feel too tired to prepare something, so you decide to eat at a restaurant, or order some take–out. The problem with this scenario is that it can really amass a huge bill by the end of the month (especially when the average personal disposable income for Canadians was US $26,888 in 2013). It also doesn’t help that sodium in Canadian restaurant foods are “alarmingly highaccording to this CBC article.

Preparing a lunch for your next day at work can be a bit of a challenge after a long day at the office, but it doesn’t have to be. You can save some of your hard – earned cash, while eating a little healthier as well. I’ve included some of my favourite go–to meals that I make during the week below:

Macaroni and cheese with green peppers – Rough cost: $1.50 – 2.00

This may sound like a very basic meal, but it’s actually very tasty and satisfying! I know macaroni can be fairly carb–heavy, but it’s good to have this every once in a while (I usually have it roughly once a week).

I simply make the macaroni by using my oven’s stove top, and while I’m waiting for the water to boil, I chop up some green peppers and I put them on a frying pan with a bit of olive oil and Italian seasoning. After everything’s ready, I drain the macaroni, I mix the green peppers with them, and I finally add the cheese sauce, butter, and milk into it (I actually use olive oil as a replacement for the butter, but I know most people prefer to have butter in their macaroni and cheese).

This is a simple meal that doesn’t require too much time or effort. If you see a sale on mac & cheese at a grocery store, stock up on a few so you can save even more money! Just check out your weekly flyers to find out when they’re on sale – there have been times when I’ve gotten Kraft Dinner 12 packs for the equivalent of $0.33 a pack!

Spinach salad with tuna – Rough Cost: $1.00 – 1.25

This healthy meal is quick enough to prepare after a long day at work, and if you’re a fan of tuna, you may even grow to love it like I do!

Years ago, I hated tuna. Just couldn’t stand it. After trying it out in a few pasta dishes that I made for myself (I was low on meaty ingredients), I started to appreciate it. Now, I typically have a tuna – related meal at least 4 times a week.

All you need to do is get a cheap bag of spinach at your local grocery store, add a can of tuna (drain it first), and maybe even add some parmesan cheese or salad dressing for flavour. You can even add some cucumbers or croutons to make it even more interesting!

It’s cheap, healthy (depending on the ingredients that you add to it), and it can really help give you that boost of energy that you’re looking for in the middle of a long day.

In my next edition of Pinching Pennies With Cheap Homemade Meals, I’ll delve into even more of the vastly affordable yet surprisingly tasty meals that I have throughout the week. If there are any affordable yet delicious meals that you love to have on a regular basis, feel free to mention them in the comments below!

Reitmans Canada: Hyba Mock Neck Jacket Now Only $5.99 (85% Off)

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Reitmans Canada: Hyba Mock Neck Jacket Now Only $5.99 (85% Off)

The clearance sales are always the best place to check out clothing deals and they are the first place I hit when looking online.  I found a great deal at Reitmans Canada on a Hybra mock neck jacket.  You can get this jacket for just $5.99 right now while supplies last.

The regular price of this jacket was $40 so being marked down to just $5.99 will save you a whopping 85% on the price.  I can’t remember the last time I got a t shirt for just $5.99 let alone a cute jacket!

This mock neck jacket comes in two different colours and still has a fairly good selection of sizes left.  You can choose from black or their parachute blue.  The blue has more sizes available I assume because black is so popular, but I actually prefer the bright blue instead anyways. It is made from cotton and spandex, and it’s perfect for going to the gym and for running errands.

This is not the only great item you will find on sale in the sale section at Reitmans.  The items are marked down at some incredible discounts starting at just $2.99. There are a lot of spring and summer items but you can find so great jacket deals like the one above as well as pants, skirts and accessories.

For example, I just love these boot cut jeans that were $50 and are now on sale for just $9.99. I also love these flat sandals that were $30 and are now marked down to just $4.99. They even still have my size left in them!

With hundreds of items to choose from, you are sure to find some great deals.  Some of the styles will have limited number if items or sizes, just because they are priced so low. Additionally, you most likely won’t be able to find these same deals if you are shopping in stores.  This is one of those times it is better to shop online rather than in stores for the great selection.

Shipping Information:

Reitmans offers free shipping when you spend just $100 or more on anything site wide.  I suggest you check out the other sale items and stock up while the prices are so low and get free shipping to boot!

WagJag Canada: $49 for an O+ Elevate Pack & a 3 Pack of Natural Refills (a $90 Value)

 

There is a great deal over at WagJag Canada right now that will save you a bundle on a package deal for anyone who is excited about health and well-being.  For a limited time only, get an O+ Elevate pack and a 3-pack of natural refills for just $49.  That is 46% off the regular price.

If you are unfamiliar with this type of product, they are becoming very popular lately.  Oxygen bars are popping up in shopping malls and the idea of bringing your own little supply of oxygen while working out or hiking is very trendy. People are always looking for more ways to stay healthy and boost their energy and this is a natural way to do it.

This elevate pack is packed with 95% enriched oxygen, and is small enough to fit in your purse, gym bag, back pack or at your desk. The reason behind this recreational oxygen is that it gives you that extra edge with heightened concentration, alertness and even mental clarity. It is all natural and will give you a little boost during your busy day.

In total, it contains over 250 breaths (50 per canister) and will give you a nice little boost of energy naturally throughout the day.

To put this deal into prospective, the O+ Elevate pack by itself is normally priced at $39.99 and with taxes & shipping puts it well over the $49 mark. That would not even include the bonus 3-pack of refills. The total value of this awesome deal is $90 but you can get it from WagJag for just $49. Additionally, you will not have to pay a cent for the cost of shipping and the taxes are already included so there will be zero additional charges.  You really can’t beat that!

Once you order this deal, it will take 4 to 6 weeks after the deal closes and your package will be delivered right to your front door. You can buy as many as you would like so think ahead to your Christmas shopping list for anyone that is trying to get their health and fitness goals back on track.  I know I would love to try this portable oxygen system since I have already tried out an oxygen bar before and loved it.

Thyme Maternity Canada: BOGO 40% Off Everything (Incl. Sale Items)

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Thyme Maternity Canada: BOGO 40% Off Everything (Incl. Sale Items)

Got a baby on the way? Then you’re going to want to shop at Thyme Maternity this week-end as they are having a “buy one, get one 40% off” deal on all of their merchandise.

Although Thyme Maternity’s promotion extends to its entire online merchandise, I’m most interested in the fact that it also works on sale items as that means even more savings! As usual, the 40% discount will only be applied to the cheapest item out of the two.

If I was still pregnant, I would definitely get the maternity top with body tie as it looks fabulous and could easily be either up-scaled with statement jewellery or downplayed for a regular trip to the grocery store! It’s on sale for $29.99 and was originally priced at $45. The fabric is stretchy, which is definitely a major advantage as you don’t want anything making you uncomfortable and you could easily wear this top as your belly gets bigger. I also really like that the neckline is a flattering one. I have come across way too many unflattering looking tops during my pregnancy, so much so that I eventually gave up on shopping and resorted to wearing what I already had! This top also has a side tie, which you can use to either tie a lovely bow or knot, depending on your style. It’s only available in a lavender fog style but that is actually the one that I think looks the best anyways!

If you don’t mind drawing even more attention to your belly, then check out the floral graphic maternity sweater. At the time of my ever-growing belly days, I bought a sweater with a roaring lion located smack-dab on the stomach-area and let’s just say that I definitely got plenty of curious looks, but that only made it more fun! The one at Thyme Maternity comes in a floral print with the words: “enjoy the little things” printed on the front in big font. It’s on sale for $29.99 (reg. $49).

Comfy pants are also a must-have during pregnancy and the knit crepe maternity trouser definitely look like they could quickly become any go-to kind of pant. They’re on sale for just $39.99 (reg. $59) and although they’re also available in black, I much prefer the white version, which has more of a black and white print design to them.

Those are just my picks but there is also a multi maternity bra on sale for just $6.99 (reg. $49), v-neck maternity t-shirts for $9.99 (reg. $24), and a couple of other cheap picks.

Shipping is free on orders over $100.

WalMart Canada: RCA 1.7 Cubic Foot Mini Fridge Clearance | Was $98 Now $68

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 12:30 PM

WalMart Canada: RCA 1.7 Cubic Foot Mini Fridge Clearance | Was $98 Now $68

All settled into your college dorm, but your old fridge isn’t cutting it? Or are you looking for the perfect fridge to fit into your garage or basement that can store plenty of drinks and snacks? WalMart currently has their RCA 1.7 Cubic Foot Mini Fridges on clearance for just $68 (regular price is $98), and you can choose from three colours: red, blue, and green. Best of all, you’ll get free shipping!

This RCA 1.7 Cubic Foot Mini Fridge has a door basket that’s large enough to carry 2 litre bottles and canned drinks, and it would truly compliment any bed room, dorm room, or garage that you put it in. It’s got a nice bright look to it, and it carries the dependable and reputable RCA name.

I once had a mini fridge back when I was 12 years old, and I absolutely loved it! It wasn’t nearly as nice as this RCA mini fridge (it had a woodgrain exterior… it was an older model that I bought at a garage sale), but we had it in our hallway during the summer months. It was especially handy for me at the time when it was the middle of the night – if I needed a nice cold drink, I just stumbled into my hallway and got a drink from the mini fridge.

These machines are very convenient, and thankfully. this RCA model is aesthetically pleasing. If you wanted to buy this RCA 1.7 Cubic Foot Mini Fridge on Amazon’s American website, it would cost you $99.99 US (besides WalMart, I found it challenging to find this particular fridge in Canada). I haven’t been able to find any reviews on this fridge, but as long as it’s able to maintain a cold temperature, I think it serves its purpose.

This item is currently on clearance at WalMart, so if you’re looking for a mini fridge, you should consider purchasing this before it’s gone. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend, Bargainmoosers!

The Source Canada: Sennheiser Open Wireless Headphones | Was $140 Now $80

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

The Source Canada: Sennheiser Open Wireless Headphones | Was $140 Now $80

If you’re a fan of high quality name brand headphones, it seems like now is the time to take advantage of some great sales! Right now, you can get some Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones for $79.99! The regular price of these wireless headphones is $139.99, so you’re saving $60! This order also qualifies for free shipping.

If you’re looking for the ultimate pair of headphones that can suit all of your audio related needs, these Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones  should easily keep you satisfied. With these high end headphones, you can have a range of up to 91 metres from the transmitter. To learn all about the specifications of these Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones , just click here.

Though I don’t own a pair of wireless headphones, I have tried out some Bose earbuds while going for a few jogs outdoors. Especially when compared to the stock headphones from Apple that came with my iPod, I noticed a huge difference between them. The Bose earbuds definitely made some of the songs I listened to sound even louder, while keeping the quality clean without any kind of distortion.

While the novelty of wireless headphones isn’t so fresh nowadays, it’s still exceptionally convenient to wear around the house – especially when you’re working out. You won’t have to worry about wrangling with a cord when you’re on the treadmill anymore, or if you’re trying to prepare some dinner. These Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones can really be quite useful!

At Future Shop and Best Buy, these wireless headphones currently cost $119.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of these Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones from a satisfied customer of The Source below:

The headphones are comfortable, the ear pcs could be slightly larger but the still fit well. The sound quality is excellent. At low volumes the bass is still vibrant and clear. The true distance you can go before sound breaks up appears to happen around the 60 – 80 ft mark which is more than what I need. Overall these are worth the investment!

Check out this deal before these headphones revert back to the regular price. I hope you all have a great weekend, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: Canon Imageclass D560 Laser Multifunction Printer | Was $350 Now $115 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 11:36 AM

Amazon Canada: Canon Imageclass D560 Laser Multifunction Printer | Was $350 Now $115 (EXPIRED)

This deal is hot, Bargainmoosers! It won’t be in stock for very long, so if you’re looking for a reliable laser printer that’s manufactured by a reputable brand, then you should order this Canon Imageclass D560 Laser Multifunction Printer while it’s still available. It normally retails for $349.99, but for a limited time you can purchase this from Amazon for $114.75 – you’re saving $235.24 on this deal! Plus, you’ll get free shipping with your order. That’s always a nice perk to purchasing anything over $25 on Amazon Canada.

The Canon Imageclass D560 Laser Multifunction Printer is a versatile machine that can help you reap the benefits of owning a laser printer. Though it prints in monochrome, if you only need to print documents, then this machine should be able to accommodate your needs. This machine also allows you to do 2 – sides printing, copying, and scanning. You can also put up to 250 sheets of paper in this machine at one time, so it’s quite the powerhouse.

I’ve been considering getting a laser printer for a while, and Canon is certainly a reliable brand. Even though print cartridges for laser printers can be quite pricey, it also takes a while for them to be fully depleted. They certainly last longer than your average ink jet printer cartridges. There are affordable options available – you can get a black cartridge for this laser printer for just $22.49 at 123inkcartridges.

This Canon Imageclass D560 Laser Multifunction Printer is currently $349.96 at Staples, so that shows you just how great this deal at Amazon really is. I’ve included a brief review of an older, cheaper model of the Canon Imageclass D560 (the D530) from a sastisfied Staples customer below:

My mother wanted a paper copier for in home use. At a great price and one cartridge that makes over 2,000 copies why not have it at home for personal use. Fairly easy to understand and use it was a great buy.

Get this while it’s still around, Bargainmoosers! I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Humble Bundle: Leading Ladies Bundle   4 Games On Steam ($79 Value) | Pay What You Want!

It’s safe to say that Humble Bundle has some interesting sales! For instance, today’s sale is for a bundle of 4 Steam games that feature leading ladies that retail for $79 combined - the price is whatever you want it to be. You can choose to pay next to nothing, or you can pay whatever you feel like paying. Either way, whatever you end paying will go to whoever you want it to go to – either the developers of the games, or the Girls Make Games scholarship fund. Hooray for good causes! Plus, since these games are for Steam, you’ll be able to play them on your computer shortly after downloading them!

The games that are included in this Leading Ladies Bundle are Lilly Looking Through, Ms. Splosion Man, The Cat Lady and Defender’s Quest: Valley of the Forgotten. If you pay $6 more than whatever you end up paying for this bundle, you’ll also be able to get the games Long Live The Queen and The Yawhg. For $10 more than whatever you end up paying for this Humble Bundle, you’ll also be able to download Valdis Story: Abyssal City.

These titles are new to me, but this is a deal that should have some members of the Steam community excited. After all, it’s for a good cause, and you also get to play some new games along the way! The one that’s catching my eye is Ms. Splosion Man, which looks like a pretty fun game.

There are many great Steam deals that have been coming out of the woodwork for these past few weeks, so it’s a great time to be a PC gamer! I’ve included a snippet of a review for Defender’s Quest: Valley of the Forgotten from a Steam user below:

Kinda interesting story, good sound and soundtrack and easy to hop into. Graphics are retro and are nicely done. Had lots of fun with this game, so definitely recommended!

This Leading Ladies Bundle will be on sale until October the 2nd. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Stag Shop Canada: Free Shipping No Minimum This Weekend (NSFW)

Stag Shop Canada: Free Shipping No Minimum This Weekend (NSFW)

I feel like its been a long time since Bargainmoose has had an adult store offer for you and being that its the weekend and tonight might be date night, you might want to spend your time getting your lover (or yourself a gift) and enjoy free shipping all weekend. Normally, you’d have to spend $49 to get free shipping, but this weekend is not going to be normal and you are going to hit up the adult sales and get free shipping.

I had an unfortunate incident this week where my dog ate something very important to me. I should have put it away in its designated drawer, but some days you get forgetful and my dog took full advantage. I am also going to take advantage of this to get myself something new and rather than schlep myself to the adult store, I’m going to shop with privacy from home!

The clearance section is the perfect place to start with a deal such as this, because no matter how low the price, you’ll get it shipped free. You really didn’t want to buy it when you had to pay $5 or whatever the shipping cost is on a $2 item. This sex in the shower loofah doggie style strap looks really interesting. You’ll only pay $10 for this instead of the regular $24.99.

If you were already thinking about Halloween, Stag Shop has some pretty cool and risque costumes with up to 70% off. I love this pin-up sailor costume as it is sexy without showing all of your skin. You make it sexy. It was $50.99, now $39.99.

Because you don’t need a coupon code to get free shipping, you’ll really need to check out the coupon page for Stag Shop, which has even more discount codes so your deals just get better and better. Try different ones to figure out which works the best to get you the most money off your order.

Toys R Us Canada: 40% Off Barbie Collector 2014 Holiday Doll – Now $30 (Reg. $50)

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Toys R Us Canada: 40% Off Barbie Collector 2014 Holiday Doll   Now $30 (Reg. $50)

Can you hear it already? “Mommy, daddy, I want Barbie for Christmas”! If you’re the parent(s) of a young one, then you know it’s coming and since Christmas is officially less than 3 months away, now is the time to start shopping for presents. Luckily, Barbie Collector 2014 holiday doll is now on sale for just $30 at Toys R Us. She was originally priced at $49.99, which means that you will be savings 40% off the original price but only during this week-end.

Every year, a new holiday-themed Barbie doll is released with a different look. Her dress, hairstyle, jewellery and even her positioning in the box all differ year to year. While last year’s Barbie doll wore a white snowflake dress and very blinged-out earrings, this year’s Barbie doll is instead wearing a red sweetheart dress with a gold statement necklace. There is a bow at her waist and the dress is slightly lifted at the bottom, revealing gold accents.

If my little girl was old enough, I would definitely take advantage of this deal as I, myself, grew up playing with Barbies. The recommended age is for 6 to 10 year olds but it really depends on each individual child.

Since this Barbie doll is a collector’s edition, you can expect her to come in special packaging. So, for all those of you who collect dolls or even Barbies in general, this one is definetly a must-have. In fact, although there are no reviews on Toys R Us’ site for this doll yet, here’s a review I found on Amazon:

Simply Beautiful! I have many of the Holiday Barbie’s. This one is one of the most beautiful. She has hair a wonderful golden shade of blond, slightly darker than the usual very pale blond. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the gold glitter eye shadow on her eyelids that make her extra special.

Speaking of which, Toys R Us’ deal is currently the best one you can find out there with both Amazon and Sears listing her at the full price of $49.99. You can take a gamble and wait until Black Friday or perhaps even Boxing Day to see if she will drop in price but considering she’s at a 40% discount right now, the chances are slim to none, especially since the lowest price we saw for the 2013 holiday Barbie was $35 last year, but you never know!

As Toys R Us ships orders over $25 for free, you’re also sure to get this doll shipped at no additional cost.

John Fluevog Canada: Free Shipping Weekend (Save $16)

John Fluevog Canada: Free Shipping Weekend (Save $16)

My favourite offer from Fluevog just landed: free shipping site wide with no minimum! Pick yourself up a snazzy pair of shoes from John Fluevog this weekend.

Anyone who knows me is keenly aware that I am no stranger to Fluevog. I own five pairs of their shoes now, though I owned six until earlier this month when I sold one pair on eBay, as they just were a bad fit for me. My other five pairs though, I would never part with them. Just think of Gollum and the one ring, and that is pretty much me and my Fluevogs.

Rather than randomly suggest shoes to you, I figured I would give you a tour of the shoes I would buy if A) they were available in my size and B) my budget allowed for it. Here are my top choices from the sale.

Firstly, the Minis Babycake is stunning. I want these boots so bad it just kills me. They are my new fixation but totally sold out in my size range. I am going to have to watch the Fluevog common and eBay in case someone wants to sell. The cherry and black is giving me a heart attack! Originally $455, these shoes are now on sale for $339.

The Swordfish Cooper is just one of those shoes I worship. I own two pairs of the Edwardian Swordfish (a high-heel version) in black as I totally missed out on buying a pair in red *very sad*. These shoes in true black are on sale in men’s size 8. The swordfish line is sized in men’s, but you just add one size on for the ladies. This would be equivalent to women size 9. (my Edwardians are a size 7 and I wear size 8 Fluevogs). Originally $285, they are on sale for $229.

The Hopes Promise is such a darling little shoe; I wish I had bought it when it was in my size. It looks to be the perfect shoe with everything from dresses to shorts. Originally $329, they are now $159.

Keep in mind the sizes are super limited! Fluevog makes shoes in a huge range of sizes, so often the middle sizes sell out first and either upper or lower sizes are left until the last. With a little patience though, you can sometimes find the perfect marriage of size and design. I have bought three pairs of shoes this way.

Shipping usually costs $16 a pair, so this is a nice deal.

Sandals: $1,500 Weddingmoon Credit

Sandals: $1,500 Weddingmoon Credit

Getting married? Congratulations! My suggestion: elope to a far-away destination. Sandals is making it easy for you to do that with their Weddingmoon promotion, which gives you $1500 in credits.

I’m going to say I’m an expert on this topic because 1) I’ve been married twice with two different styles of weddings and 2) one of them was at Sandals. My first wedding was a fun affair, but consisted of months of stressful planning, falling-outs with family and friends because of the wedding plans and cost quite a bit. My second wedding where my husband and I ran off with two friends took literally no planning, cost me just the cost of a honeymoon and a dress and was stress-free.

Sandals really knows how to do weddings. Everything is super easy from the time you arrive at the resort. You take a look at a book to choose your location, flowers, your cake and your dinner and you book any appointments you want. Done. All included too! Now, on top of this, you’ll get a $500 wedding credit, $500 jewelry credit and $500 in bonus credits. Also, things have changed since I got married and you can do this all online so you don’t use any of your time away planning. It is so much fun too and almost (almost) makes me want to get married again.

Choose your destination, your theme and then you can choose your wedding items. Your $500 credit can be used to have a free beautiful beginnings wedding or can go towards a custom or pre-designed wedding theme.

Your bonus credits can be used towards side trips or fun activities, plus paying for your minister, getting a room upgrade, a honeymoon video and much more – its all your choice.

Plus, you get a $500 credit to choose jewellery, either for yourself or your guests or your spouse. I really love the charm designer and if you are a man planning this wedding, this is a gorgeous gift to give your new bride after the wedding, which she could add to with the addition of each child or on anniversaries.

I got married at Sandals Grande Riviera but they all look beautiful. Any moosers on here married at Sandals?
