Land’s End Coupon Code: 30% Off Regular Priced Items

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Lands End Coupon Code: 30% Off Regular Priced Items

Loving Lands End and taking a trip south in the winter makes me want to shop this sale! Use the coupon code and pin to get 30% off everything regular priced. Not to fret if you want something on sale, as you can get that for 20% off with the coupon.

Click here to shop @ Landsend.com now

  • Coupon Code: CANDY
  • Pin: 1624
  • Discount: 30% off regular priced items & 20% off sale
  • Expiry: 26th October 2014

I know that Land’s End sells items for winter, but I just love their swimsuits. I also noticed they have a very hot nautical look line that I think I must have.

You do need to know that they ship from the U.S. and that all fees are paid right at checkout, so you won’t have that friendly delivery man at your door asking for your first born in return for your package. You’ll know exactly how much money you need to shell out to get your deals from Land’s End so you can always decide if it is worth it before you hit the pay button.

Speaking of nautical, these sport knit crop pants are sort of a must-have as a starter in your marine-themed collection. Available in seven colours, I like the white the best, but if the pink interests you, they are such a hot deal. Regularly $31.77, but on sale for only $5.30. After adding the coupon, you’ll get these pants for only $4.24!!! The other colours are only a little more expensive, so if an extra small pink isn’t your thing, then don’t feel you need save your $5 or so to get the other colours (hey, get one in each if you dare!).

As I said, I’m going south and while I plan to do the whole “lose 10 pounds before I go”, I might protect myself by getting a flattering suit like the slender suits that Land’s End carries. I’ve been meaning to for a while, but was never interested in paying full price. This women’s grecian one piece slender suit in teal spruce looks fantastic. I love that if you weren’t sure if you’d love the colour, you can order a free swatch. It was $128.27, which is an investment in itself, but on sale for $58.84. Add the coupon and you’ll get it for $47.07.

If you want to check out more Land’s End coupon codes, take a look at the forum.

Sportchek Canada Anniversary Sale: 40-60% Off & Free Shipping On Doorcrashers

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Sportchek Canada Anniversary Sale: 40 60% Off & Free Shipping On Doorcrashers

Sportchek is celebrating their 40th anniversary with a giant sale! They have up to 60% off a number of doorcrashers, and the doorcrashers will also get free shipping, with no minimum. Normally you’d need to spend $99, so this is lowering the bar, a lot!

There are a number of categories in this sale, although most of them are in the 40% and 50% off range, which is still quite a discount. There is one 60% off discount, which is on the Bolle Nova II adult snow goggles. These were regularly $69.99, now $27.99. I tried to price compare but couldn’t find this exact style anywhere else. I did find other Bolle goggles and the price ranged from $25 to $80. I know when I bought my Bolle snow goggles around 15 years ago, they were over $50, so I think this is a great deal. I may pick up a pair for myself since my boys are learning to snowboard this year, and I might head out there with them.

I might as well get my husband out there too, and he’ll need a helmet to protect that precious brain of his and there are two K2 Clutch men’s helmets on sale for 50% off, regularly $99.99, now $49.99.

If you are looking for jackets, there are doorcrashers for men, women and kids. This Firefly Joey 3-in-1 jacket interests me for my boys, especially my middle son who somehow doesn’t have a hand-me-down jacket right now. I love it because he can wear all parts on the coldest days or just the shell liner on cool days. This was $149.99, now $89.99 and it will still get free shipping even under that regular $99 minimum. If you spending $90 on a jacket, you really don’t want to waste your time and money trying to find a way to fill your cart to avoid shipping fees.

Well.ca: Cottonelle 12 Double-Rolls Only $7.74

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Well.ca: Cottonelle 12 Double Rolls Only $7.74

Well.ca is offering three varieties of Cottonelle 12 Double-Rolls for just $7.74 a set. While their original price is quite outrageous, this is still a good deal and beats the competitor’s prices that I could find.

There are three types of toilet paper included in this sale.

Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Care Toilet PaperThis is a 2-ply toilet paper that is soft, thick, and absorbent. Several of the commenters recommend purchasing it while on sale!

Cottonelle Gentle Care Toilet PaperThis is a 2-ply toilet paper enriched with aloe and vitamin E. I think of it as a toilet paper that gives back to your behind. It has mostly good reviews (one bad). One person said it lasts longer because you use less of it.

Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet PaperI never knew 1-ply toilet paper still existed, but here it is. This toilet paper is sewer and septic tank friendly. Why buy 2-ply when you can just make your 1-ply 30% stronger with extra-absorbent ripples? So far, this product has really impressed reviewers with a solid 5/5 stars with three reviews.

There are a couple reasons why I am posting about this deal. First, everyone uses toilet paper. This is a product, whether this brand or not, that I know every single Mooser needs and uses on a daily basis. How often can we say that about the rest of the stuff we post? This is also a nice deal for those who cannot make it in store to buy their toilet paper due to kids, disabilities, and more. Also, while this is one of the more expensive toilet paper brands, it is certainly nice to treat your butt sometimes. I find I use less toilet paper when I buy quality.

Second, I price compared with a few places and you are saving enough extra money I thought it was worth posting. Without further ado, here is the price comparison sheet. London Drugs Canada sells the same packs for $10.99 each and Walmart Canada sells them for $9.88 each. You save $2.14 per pack compared to Walmart’s prices. I even looked at some bulk packs. Walmart has a 24-pack for $18.88. That works out to $9.44 for a 12-pack making Well.ca’s deal still cheaper.

The only disadvantage to buying from Well.ca is they have a $25 shipping minimum. However, I know few people who will buy just one of anything when faced with a good deal. Toilet paper is one of those things you can load up on and just stack the rolls under your bathroom sink or in a storage closet. There are also a plethora of good deals on this week at Well.ca so be sure to check out the weekly deals section.

If you are a first time buyer at Well.ca, head on over to our Well.ca coupon code section to get $10 off $40 or 10% off your purchase. Buying six packs and using the $10 off coupon with a new account will make this deal even hotter!

Puma Canada: Up To 70% & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Puma Canada: Up To 70% & Free Shipping

Puma is having a sale, ending today with up to 70% off items for men, women and kids, plus they have a promo code that will get you free shipping with no minimum.

Click here to shop @ Ca.puma.com now

  • Coupon Code: FREESHIPOCT14
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: 23rd October 2014

When you have kids, you don’t realize how much money you’ll spend on shoes. It really is unbelievable. They wear through shoes so fast by using them as brakes, or their feet grow so fast, the shoes don’t even look like the kid wore them. Plus, they need indoor shoes for school, indoor shoes for extracurricular activities and outdoor shoes. Because kid’s feet need stability and proper shoes, you really can’t buy cheap in this department. I have three boys, so that could mean nine pairs of shoes per season! This is why I look for great deals on quality shoes like Puma.

Luckily for me, this Puma sale has a variety of kids shoes on sale, like these suede chemical comic jr. sneakers. They were $69, now only $28, which is quite the discount. They have sizes 1 to 4.5 in stock and I love that they do half sizes as you really want a proper fit. Even though $28 is far lower than the $99 minimum threshold for free shipping, by using the coupon above, they will ship free to you.

While most of my clothing money is spent on my kids, with sales like these, I need to splurge a little on myself. I found this washed zip-up sweater in electric green or pink-washed, that is perfect for everyday wear. It was $100, which I would never pay for a sweater, but I would pay $40.

Note that all prices are in USD and that all duties and custom fees are pre-paid at the checkout so you don’t have to worry about them after the fact.

If you are interested in Puma coupon codes, always take a look at the coupon forum before you shop.

Hudson’s Bay Canada: 50% Off Flannel Nighties Now $27

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Hudsons Bay Canada: 50% Off Flannel Nighties Now $27

My mother requested a ‘sexy flannel nightie’ for her birthday mid-November, so I have been spending many an hour trying to find the impossible. Along the way, I did find some pretty flannel nighties that might just do the trick. The Bay Canada has 50% off Jasmine Rose Scalloped Pintuck Sleep Gowns with Ribbon Trim. Originally $54, they are now on sale for $27 each. Choose from two different fabrics styles.

I have arbitrarily given these two designs names just to keep them separate. The paisley design is warranted as the nightgown has paisley prints on it in accenting colours. The flannel sleep gown comes in blue flannel with purple paisley print or purple flannel with blue paisley print. Sizing ranges from small through extra-large with all sizes are currently in stock.

I have dubbed the second design branch because it looks like a whole bunch of branches and tiny leaves are on the gown. There might even be berries on those branches, I cannot tell. I think this design is my favourite, and it comes in pink or blue. The blue is very different from the above blue. This one is more of a teal in my opinion (if the pictures are in any way accurate). Again, all sizes are currently in stock and this flannel nightie shares the same size range as the previous one.

Both styles have lace framing the neck and at the cuffs. There are also rows of lace and ribbon decorating the décolletage area for a lovely accent. While I would not exactly call these ‘sexy’ flannel nighties, they are quite pretty. Flannel serves a practical purpose: warmth. Living in and around Edmonton for most of my life, I am all too familiar with winter. Sometimes sexy can take a siesta in favour of warmth. Sure, I want to look nice while staying warm, but it is very hard to feel amorous when you start to turn blue.  These nighties look cute and they will keep you warm.

My mother’s favourite colour currently is pink, so I might buy her that one. Purchase two and receive free shipping with your HBC Card (minimum of $49). For orders without an HBC Card, there is a $99 minimum for free shipping. However, shipping costs under that start at just $5.95.

Halloween Coupon Codes Roundup

At the beginning of the month, we did a roundup of the great Halloween costume couponsbut there is so much more to save on at Halloween time than just costumes.  Most companies put out special coupon codes in honour of different holidays even if they sell nothing remotely close to what the holiday is about.  For example, a lot of airlines put out coupons for deals on travel for Halloween even though it is not really a holiday where people will do travelling.  The way I look at it, I will take advantage of those discounts no matter the reason behind them.

Since Halloween is almost a week away now, there are a lot of Halloween themed promo codes popping up to take advantage of, and we want to share some of them with you in this Halloween Coupon Code Roundup.

Teleflora - Use the promo code AFTREAT to get 15% off all Halloween merchandise until October 31st.

Aartech Canada- Save 5% on your order of $300 or more with the coupon BOO until October 31st.

Joe Fresh- Use either TREAT10, TREAT20, or TREAT60 to get a voucher fro future purchases until October 26th.

Wordans - You can use the coupon HALLOWEEN20 to save yourself 20% on your entire order for a limited time only.

Ardene- The coupon code ARDENEHALLOWEEN will save you 20% on all orders of $100 or more until October 31st.

KidoodleGet two months of free online children’s television with code SPOOKY.

LeapFrog Canada- The coupon CANDY will get you free shipping and $15 off orders of $50 or more until October 24th.

Encore CouponGet $5 off Halloween fonts with this coupon HLWNFONT for a limited time only.

Flat Iron Experts – Get 20% off all orders over $100 with code HALLO2014.

As you can see, we have a pretty large variety of Halloween coupon codes posted on the Bargainmoose coupon forum and this is just a small fraction of them. The closer we get to Halloween, the more fun coupons like these ones you will see joining the forum.  You don’t have to actually buy Halloween items to save for this holiday.

Happy Halloween Shopping Moosers!

WalMart Canada: Fleece Tops For Women On Clearance | Was $10 Now $3

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 10:18 AM

WalMart Canada: Fleece Tops For Women On Clearance | Was $10 Now $3

WalMart is at it again – they’re providing us with some amazing clearance deals! Now that the weather is starting to get a little chilly and we’re nearing the end of October, it might be time to start preparing for colder weather conditions (I refuse to say that 6-letter word that starts with a “w” and ends in an “r”). Well, WalMart is currently having a clearance sale on some of their George Classics Fleece Tops for women, which you can now buy for just $3 each! These previously retailed for $10 each, so you’re saving 70% with this deal! Best of all, you’ll also get free shipping with your order.

These crewneck fleece tops for women are 72% Cotton and 28% polyester, and have an easy pull-over style. You can choose from a wide variety of different colours and sizes, including pink, blue, red, and light blue. For $3 (plus free shipping), this is a huge bargain!

It always helps to have a few extra tops to wear. Since this is such a cheap price, you can pick up some fleece tops that you can use whenever you’re planning to eat somewhere messy (I have a terrible habit of getting some food or sauce on my clothes when I’m at an all-you-can-eat buffet… those chicken balls filled with sweet and sour sauce can get slippery). Or you can bring some of these affordable fleece tops with you when you’re embarking on a road trip or a vacation – if you lose them, you wouldn’t have to worry too much (after all, they were only $3).

The George brand is exclusive to WalMart. Similar fleece tops are currently on sale at Old Navy for $11.99. I’ve included a brief review of these fleece tops for women from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

I bought this a month ago, and it’s soft and warm. I recommended these tops to my friends.

Since these are on clearance, they may not be in stock for very long! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Thursday, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

It’s a shame that these coupon codes don’t apply to their Playstation products, but thankfully Sony is an electronics powerhouse that’s known for much more than just their video game consoles.

Just to show you how this is a decent sale from Sony, if you were to buy the Xperia Z2 Unlocked Smartphone from Amazon, it would cost you $657.88 (you can get it for $549.99 when you use the $50 off coupon code). Listed below is a brief review of this smartphone from a satisfied Amazon customer:

Awesome phone!! Awesome OS. As a former iPhone user I can say I’m thrilled with this phone. The OS is way more customizable which is great.

These coupon codes are only valid today, so take advantage of these savings while you still can. Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Staples Canada: La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair | Was $275 Now $125

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Staples Canada: La Z Boy Ellison Managers High Back Center Pivot Chair | Was $275 Now $125

This is one sweet deal! Staples currently has their La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair on sale for $124.54 – it used to cost $274.54! That’s $150 off the retail price! You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

Click here to check out this deal @ Staples.ca now

The La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair looks so comfortable that I wish I was sitting in it right now. Sure, my black leather office chair is very nice, and it’s quite convenient, but you just can’t compete with an office chair that was made by La-Z-Boy! They’re especially known for their recliners (thus, the famous term La-Z-Boy is used commonly, much like the way people will call tissue paper Kleenex, even when it’s a generic brand). Yes, La-Z-Boy has plenty of brand familiarity, and a great reputation, too.

This is a very good deal at Staples. This La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair is a high end product, and I’d be very surprised if these comfortable-looking chairs were still in-stock tomorrow! If you’re looking for the perfect replacement for your office chair, or if you want to spoil yourself and get a luxury piece of furniture without breaking the bank, then I highly suggest that you check out this deal!

If you were to purchase a similar La-Z-Boy Manager’s Chair at Bizchair, it would cost you $501.99. I’ve included a brief review of a similar La-Z-Boy manager’s chair from a satisfied Staples customer below:

Husband was having back problems from sitting in his chair from a certain cheap store. So I went to staples and bought him this. First he complained that I spent this much on a chair, however he absolutely loves it! He’s in his office chair 8-10 hours a day and has not had a single pain since I bought him this chair! 

This deal expires on October 28th, but I’ll be shocked if this La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair remains in stock until then. I hope you all have a great day today!

Sears Canada: 80% Off Lagostina Endura Wok – Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Sears Canada: 80% Off Lagostina Endura Wok   Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Sears has a great deal right now on the Lagostina Endura wok. Get it now for just $19.99, which is 80% off its original retail price of $99.

The Lagostina Endura is a heavy gauge and forged aluminum wok that can hold up to 3L. It’s non-stick, is safe to use on induction cook-tops and although hand-washing is recommended, could technically be thrown in the dishwasher if you want. It’s also oven save up to 350°F. Although it has a couple of negative reviews, one reviewer wasn’t able to use it on her induction range and the other found that it scratched her stove top. Overall, however, this wok boasts a general consensus of 4 stars out of 5 with 10 reviews like this one:

I bought this wok because my family love stir fry and we eat it often. This wok made the cooking extra easy and the clean up was just as easy. I am so impressed by this product and i wished that i had ordered more when it was on sale.

 

Living in a such a culturally diverse country as Canada is means that our kitchens need to be stocked with cookware essentials from other countries. A wok is one of those must-have kitchen items, especially considering its versatility. From deep drying to steaming, poaching and so much more, what can’t a wok do?

In fact, did you know that woks first originated in Guangdong, China. Their use has since spread into much of the industrial world. I have to admit that the only ever time I make use of my wok is to make General Tao but boy, is it worth it and very easy also! Just slice some chicken thighs into cubes, cover in corn starch and deep fry in a wok until golden brown. Then toss it with General tao sauce (either homemade or store bought) and that’s it!

As for shipping, you have a couple of options at your disposal: you can either choose to pay the $7.95 shipping fee to have this wok delivered straight to your door or you can go pick it up for free at a Sears store near you. Alternatively, if you add a couple more items to your cart and your total comes up to $99 or more, then your order will also automatically qualify for free shipping.

Amazon Canada: Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 On Blu-Ray | Was $44 now $19

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 On Blu Ray | Was $44 now $19

Good morning, Bargainmoose readers! Today’s deal on Amazon is for the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 on Blu-Ray, and it’s a good one! We’ve recently seen Volume 1 on sale at Amazon (and it still is), but this is the first time that I’ve ever seen a substantial sale on Volume 2. Normally $43.98 on Amazon, you can now purchase the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 on Blu-Ray for $18.99 (plus $1.99 shipping). Now that’s a great price for 3 Blu-Ray discs packed with classic Looney Tunes cartoons!

The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 on Blu-Ray is a great set that features plenty of these classic Warner Brothers cartoons, including characters such as Bugs Bunny, Sylvester & Tweety, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and many others. What’s especially intriguing about the Blu-Ray version of this set is the extra Tex Avery cartoons that are included, which have been highly coveted for many years.

If you’re looking for something relaxing and nostalgic that you can play in the background when you’re busy around the house, or if you want to unwind and relax on a Sunday afternoon with something familiar, then you should consider picking up this set. I also recommend that you get The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 1, especially if you’ve ever enjoyed these cartoons when you were younger. They have aged quite well, and are still entertaining!

If you purchased the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 at Best Buy in America, it would cost you $42.99 US. It’s getting hard to find this set on Blu-Ray nowadays (it’s not currently listed on Future Shop, Best Buy, or WalMart). I’ve included a brief review of this Blu-Ray set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

Watching these cartoons on a 72″ screen, fully restored in Blu-Ray is a real treat. The picture is nice and clean, the colours are vibrant. 

I hope you all have a great day today!

DC Shoes Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Extra 40% Off All Sale Styles (+ Free Shipping)

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 10:00 PM

DC Shoes Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Extra 40% Off All Sale Styles (+ Free Shipping)

Reduced prices in the sale section are great and all but what’s even better is getting an additional discount. During the next week, you can save an extra 40% off all sale styles at DC Shoes with our Bargainmoose exclusive. Plus, DC Shoes also offers absolutely free shipping on any order!

Click here to shop the sale section @ DCShoes.com now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE40
  • Discount: extra 40% off sale
  • Expiry: 28th October 2014

Don’t skip over this deal thinking that all DC Shoes offers is shoes. Their inventory is actually compromised of a whole lot more than just footwear and in fact, their sale section has loads of selections from bags, clothing, to sandals, accessories, snow apparel etc.

Although the style is a little too funky for my taste, I found the women’s squad snowboard jacket on sale for $98.99 (reg. $199.95), which means that with the Bargainmoose exclusive, it comes even further down to just $59.39. Shopping for a nice winter jacket in the fall or even winter seasons can be somewhat of a challenge on one’s wallet at times, so the fact that there is such a large discount to be had on it is actually rather surprising. This jacket could most certainly be perfect for snowboarding or even skiing as it features mesh lined venting, a hidden bandana and a waist gaiter. It’s only available in XS and S, but I chose it to demonstrate just how much you can save.

Speaking of snowboarding, there are even a couple of snowboarding boots in the sale section! Given how expensive these can be, I certainly hope that all of your snowboardin’ Moosers will jump at this opportunity. My favourites are definitely the women’s search snowboard boots, which come down to $53.99 from a sale price of $89.98 (reg. $179.95). They come in either white or turquoise and feature a BOA H3 coiler closure system and a new Unilite outsole. The only review they have is the following 4/5 star one:

BOA system is easy to use and saves time vs. traditional laces! However, the occasional readjustment is required if boarding for the day. Inside lock for laces is hard to unlock, but it just takes time so be patient.

It’s only available in a medium, but I also spotted an awesome boy’s amo snowboard jacket for $32.39 instead of $53.99 (reg. $109.95) and as I’m sure plenty of parents will appreciate, it’s nice and bright. Plus, it also has a near perfect rating with a total of 4 reviews.

All in all, there is plenty to choose and save on, but if you happen to miss the chance to use our Bargainmoose exclusive, then make sure to keep an eye on our forum for more DC Shoes promo codes.

How to Haggle Your Way to a Better Deal

How to Haggle Your Way to a Better Deal

Ladies, you’ve probably heard this at least once in your life.

When it comes to haggling for a better deal, most women have one thing in common – they suck at it.

Linda Babcock and Sara Lashchever, authors of Women Don’t Ask: Negotiation and the Gender Divide, reveal some interesting statistics on their website.

According to their book, 2.5 times more women than men said they “feel a great deal of apprehension when negotiating” and men initiate negotiations four times as often as women. Women compared negotiating to “going to the dentist,” while men compared it to “winning a ballgame” or a “wrestling match.” This opinion costs women money.

Get this, the book also revealed that women will voluntarily pay $1,353 to avoid negotiating the price of a car and that women are more pessimistic about what they can get from negotiating, so they typically ask for and get less than men – 30% less to be exact. Even worse, 20% of female adults – that’s 22 million people – avoid negotiating at all, even though they know that sometimes negotiating is called for and necessary.

You may think these statistics come from one source and they could be biased, but there are countless other sources that show that women have difficulty negotiating for raises or their job offers.

In fact, compared to other places in the world, North Americans negotiate a lot less, but it hasn’t always been this way.

“One hundred years ago, Americans used to negotiate because we weren’t as affluent as we are now. After the Second World War, we had a monopoly on a lot of the world’s manufactured goods and people had to deal with that kind of ultimatum, so a (no choice on the price) attitude became much more pervasive,” said Herb Cohen when I interviewed him about the art of the deal in 2010.

Herb Cohen is one the world’s foremost negotiators. He helped create the F.B.I.’s hostage negotiation program, he advised U.S. President Jimmy Carter on the Iranian Hostage Crisis and he is arguably credited with coining the term, “win-win situation.”

As a woman, you may suck at negotiating, but like Cohen told me, “Anything that’s the product of a negotiation can be negotiated for. You just have to know how to do it effectively.”

So without further adieu, here are a few ways to do just that.

Do Some Research Before You Suit Up

WikiHow recommends finding out how much what you want is going for by either comparing prices online or visiting other stores in your area. Make sure you’re comparing apples to apples and you’re not looking at a used product or one with considerable damage that isn’t what you’re buying. Arm yourself with proof of lower prices in case the store clerk is willing to match or beat them. Also familiarize yourself with the various features of the product and how they compare with other models or competing products, so that you know the difference between them and value of each and can set the perimeters of the deal.

Have Your Lowest Price in Mind Before You Start

Thanks to the research you do, Kiplinger points out that you should have a fair price in mind – or at least the lowest price you’re willing to settle for – and you can use the research you’ve done to make your case. However, don’t name that price. Staying quiet can work to your advantage, as silence is awkward and can get the seller to volunteer a lower price, especially if it’s the end of the day or the seller looks eager to leave or close the deal. Get them to quote a price first and then ask how much they can come down, don’t give them the price you have in mind. Never give away a number right away. If the seller says “Yes” you’ll never know if you could’ve gone lower and got an even better deal.

Keep Negotiations Friendly

Too many people see a negotiation as a battle with a winner and a loser, but most expert negotiators say that if one of the parties involved in the deal goes away unhappy, then you have haggled wrong. According to The Telegraph, you should start by building a rapport with the salesperson. Smile, ask for their first name and give them yours. Then you can start with a little small talk before you get down to business. Get them to show you the product that you’re seeking and walk you through its features. You may know this information already thanks to your research, but it can help put the seller at ease and make them eager to help you.

Remember, you want them to work with you and not against you. You also want to help them out and try to create a win-win situation for both sides. Ask them about their current stock because maybe if they help you with a deal, you can help them by getting rid of some of their overstock. Frame all your discussions as if you need them to help you.

Look for Flaws, Defects or Age Indicators

You should never pay full price for a flawed or damaged product, so if you spot flaws, point out what’s wrong and use it as a reason you should get a deal. You can also use the same tactic if you’re buying a floor model, used products, last year’s model, or the last one left.

Never Take No for an Answer and Always be Prepared to Walk Away

Don’t just say you’ll walk away if you can’t get a deal – actually do it. Stand your ground and keep asking the salesperson questions. Don’t let them rush you into a buy, take your time and work all the angles. Know that if it doesn’t feel right, you can walk away at anytime and make sure the salesperson knows that. If they see a potential sale walking out the door, they may suddenly get a bit more cooperative.

Bundle Your Items

Before you start in on the big main event item you you’ve come for, take a look around the showroom floor and see if anything else catches your fancy. If something does, put it in the back of your mind because you may be able to save that one for later. The more you’re able to bundle your purchases together, (doing the seller a favour by taking more merchandise off their hands) the steeper the discount you should be entitled to.

There you have it, did we miss anything? What’s your favourite haggling strategy and are women really as bad at it as people think? Leave your answer in the comments below.

Canadian Freebies: Free 2015 Calendar @ Telus

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Canadian Freebies: Free 2015 Calendar @ Telus

Request your absolutely free physical copy of a Telus 2015 calendar right now. You do not need to have any Telus services to request your free calendar.

While digital calendars are the way of the future, physical calendars are still very nice. It is easier to coordinate family schedules where everyone can just drop their varies events, vacations, and appointment in one place. Enter the physical calendar: a wad of high quality printed-paper that has been keeping families sane for years.

Requesting your free calendar is simple. Click through the above link and then answer a series of questions. You will be asked for the following:

  • Phone number
  • What Telus services you have (if any)
  • How you heard about the deal
  • Your address

I do not need a calendar myself, so I sent one to my parents instead as they use one to coordinate my father’s work schedule. I am not going to tell my mother I sent them one, it will just be a nice surprise when it shows up. After submitting all the information and verifying the mailing address was correct, Telus said:

Your calendar will be on its way soon. It should arrive at your door in approximately 4 to 6 weeks.

Most freebies take that long to ship these days. I do not mind a bit as I am getting things for free. I have no idea how long this offer will last, so take advantage of this sooner rather than later. I would most certainly order by the middle of November (if this promo is still on then) to make sure you have your calendar in time for the New Year. I expect shipping might even be delayed a bit longer due to the backlog of packages and mail that is sent at Christmas time.

Hey Moosers, do you use a physical calendar anymore? If so, let me know why in the comments below.
