X-Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) Was $25 | Now $14 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 27, 2015 at 3:45 PM

X Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) Was $25 | Now $14 @ Amazon.ca

Amazon Canada has discounted the X-Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) from $24.95 down to $14.49. The original retail value of this set was $44.99.

This ultimate edition includes Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray, and the digital edition. I could not find this exact cover very many places, which made price comparing a tad bit more difficult. The places I did find it failed to use ‘ultimate edition’ in the title so it became a ‘let’s match’ sort of game. Thus, I compared based on the content rather than the specific edition.

Walmart Canada does sell this specific ultimate edition for $24.96. While Best Buy does not have the ‘ultimate edition,’ their Deluxe Edition includes the 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray and Digital Edition as well – so the same content. It is priced at $29.99. Chapters Indigo does not have this title in stock (in Blu-Ray 3D combo-pack) and neither does HMV.

Given that this set is $10 less than the nearest competitor’s price, I would say it is a good deal. My partner already owns this set, as he is a big X-Men fan. When I asked him what he thought of the movie, he said:

“It was a nice portrayal of one of the most famous comic book stories in X-Men. It was also amusing to see Professor X as a drunk! Quicksilver was also a pleasant surprise. I would give it 4/5 stars.”

The story introduces some new X-Men along with many of your favourite characters. I am not an X-Men fan myself, but I know many others are. That is why these movies keep being produced!

The movie has a 4.4/5 star rating with over 180 customer reviews. I checked out Rotten Tomatoes – one of my favourite critic sites – for their thoughts. On the tomato meter, X-Men: Days of Future Past scored a breathtaking 91%. The critic’s consensus was:

X-Men: Days of Future Past combines the best elements of the series to produce a satisfyingly fast-paced outing that ranks among the franchise’s finest installments.

Some people even think that this is the best X-Men movie ever made. Whether you are already solidly in that camp or you have yet to see the movie, purchase it for less than $15 at Amazon right now.

Amazon.ca: NatureBright Light and Ion Therapy Lamp Was $140 | Now $84

Posted by on April 27, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Amazon.ca: NatureBright Light and Ion Therapy Lamp Was $140 | Now $84

**BUMP – This lamp has dropped down to this price again!**

Capitalize on this therapy lamp deal at Amazon Canada to chase away the winter blues. The NatureBright SunTouch Plus Light and Ion Therapy Lamp is on sale from $139.99 down to $83.99.

The same lamp is $189.99 at Sears.ca.

These lamps are traditionally used for treating SAD: seasonal effective disorder. However, they can also help people who just get a bit moody or need some light after days of cloudy skies or rain. Many people find it useful for treating sleep difficulties, low moods, fatigue caused by irregular work shifts, jet leg, and other symptoms.

The lamp has a 10,000 LUX light, which is necessary for effective therapy. According to Amazon Canada, “The Sun Touch Plus produces 17000 Kelvin which makes it the highest rated Kelvin light therapy device on the market and the closest to actual blue sky.”

We bought this light back in December as weeks of rain left everyone out of sorts, especially my partner. You are supposed to sit within 10 – 12 inches of the light, as the farther you get away the less effective the light will be. I chose this light because it has the highest reviews of any of the light therapy lamps and it was the highest rated Kelvin therapy device I could find.

The reviews for this lamp are far more positive than on other lamps. Out of 74 reviews, 47 of them give the lamp a solid 5/5 star rating. Overall, the lamp rates 4.4/5 stars. One reviewer said:

I bought this lamp after feeling really blue and testing with serious depression. I use the lamp every morning and take Vitamin D supplements. I have not had to take any other medications!! I felt better after only a couple of days and those around me have said the difference was dramatic right away. I can tell the difference on days when I don’t get to use my lamp.

You should use the lamp for a half our every day, faithfully, so the affect can build up in your system. Sporadic use will not achieve the desired outcome.

For anyone that suffers with the seasonal blues, has sleeping problems, works night shift, or travels frequently – this is a good alternative to other forms of medication. The lamp takes up only a small amount of space and only requires 30 minutes of your time per day. Use it while you have breakfast and read your email.

LEGO Chima Flying Phoenix Fire Temple Was $140 | Now $84 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 25, 2015 at 2:00 PM

LEGO Chima Flying Phoenix Fire Temple Was $140 | Now $84 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Every boy loves it – LEGO Chima. Sometimes it is hard to find certain sets on sale, and LEGO Chima can get expensive. Right now Amazon.ca has the LEGO Chima Flying Phoenix Fire Temple on sale from $139.99 down to $83.87. This is the lowest price around on this set, and you’ll even get free shipping.

LEGO Chima is a fun way to promote imaginative play. This set has lots of 5 star reviews, and I am sure you know why. LEGO Chima is a high quality type of LEGO that can be fun for the entire family. While it can be quite expensive, we keep our eyes peeled for the best deals on this stuff (among other things of course). So you will be happy to know that if you shop at Amazon Canada while supplies last, you can pay just $83.87 for this LEGO Chima Flying Phoenix Fire Temple instead of the original price which was $139.99.

This particular LEGO Chima set includes 7 minifigures and their weapons. The weapons can be pretty small, so if you have younger children you may want to remove these before allowing them to play. The minifigures are:

  • Fluminox
  • Flinx
  • Foltrax
  • Tormak
  • Li’Ella
  • Stealthor
  • Vroom Vroom

There is even a saber-tooth vehicle with an intriguing clawing function, ball shooter, scary ice fangs and a flyer that detaches. The Phoenix Temple is about six inches high, 17 inches long and 17 inches wide, so it can take up quite a little chunk of space. The included saber-tooth vehicle is about 6 inches high and 8 inches long, so it is not small enough that it could easily get lost. There are 1301 pieces, so it is up to you to keep count, haha. Maybe that is why this set is best suited for children ages 9 through 14. How old are your kiddos that play with LEGO Chima?

I did a little price comparison to ensure that this is the best price around, and it really is. Sears Canada has this LEGO Chima Flying Phoenix Fire Temple for $139.99, but they are sold out. You will find this toy for $139.99 BestBuy.ca and ToysRUs.ca as well. Since this item is well above $25, you will even get free shipping on your purchase from Amazon.ca.

Amazon Canada: Kindle Was $79 | Now $64 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada: Kindle Was $79 | Now $64 & Free Shipping

Have you run out of ideals for Mother’s Day yet? Maybe Mom would like a brand new Kindle eReader with touch technology. Originally $79, the Kindle is now on sale for $64 with free shipping.

Amazon Canada runs this promotion every once in a while. They had the same promotion for Black Friday and again for Valentine’s Day. Thus, the deal crops up every few months – just in time for important events. a few years ago I bought my mother her first ever eReader for Mother’s Day. She really loved the little device and took it with her everywhere.

Now, the base Kindle is not the only device on sale. You can also purchase the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Paperwhite 3G at a discount. However, the discount is not as good as the discount for the base Kindle. Here is my comparison chart:

You can easily see that the bigger the machine does not necessarily make it the better discount. The basic Kindle is certainly the best deal and it is more affordable than other eReaders in its class. The cheapest Kobo eReader, the Kobo Touch, retails for $79.99. I tried to find eReaders on Sony’s website, but they appear to exist no longer.

This eReader is an excellent basic device. The touchscreen device will remind you of a tablet or your smart phone. The device is really light and it is small enough to fit in a pocket, though I would tend to stick it in a bag for safety’s sake. I have heard way too many stories about people who have sat on their eReaders and killed the device flat out.

Some people may wonder why you would by a Kindle over a Kobo. Well, eBooks on Amazon Canada tend to cost less and they often have wicked sales on eBooks. In addition, The kindle includes Goodreads integration – a valuable community and tracker for avid readers. I am a member of Goodreads and find it valuable for keeping track of the books I have read and what I thought of those books. My goal this year is to read 30 new books.

eReaders mimic the reading style of a book, thus they are superior to tablets for reading without eye-strain.

Amazon Canada: Over 70% Off Earth Series DVD & Blu-Rays (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 22, 2015 at 9:57 AM

Amazon Canada: Over 70% Off Earth Series DVD & Blu Rays (EXPIRED)

Happy Earth Day! To celebrate, Amazon has some fantastic deals on earth-type documentaries and shows, with some of them being over 70% off.

While I’ve only watched a few minutes of some of the Planet Earth series, it has really been on my to-do list to sit down as a family and watch these very important shows. My kids (and I) need to learn about our beautiful earth, so we try to take care of it. I know they would love to see a show such as this, as they love animals and love learning about our world.

The best deal I found during this sale is Planet Earth: The Complete Series (Special Edition) on Blu-ray. It was $99.90 and is now $26.49. With $256 ratings, all of those reviewers can’t be wrong giving it almost five stars. The cheapest I’ve seen it selling elsewhere is $85, which makes this a very kick-butt deal.

The series Life (UK version) looks fascinating as well. Again, this one has a 4.5 star rating. Regularly $74.98 for the DVD version, it is on sale for $29.49. The Blu-ray was $87.48 and is now $24.49. Interesting enough that the blu-ray is cheaper at Amazon, but Walmart sells the DVD for about $70 and the blu-ray version for $94. Again, another priceless deal.

If you like National Geographic, you’ll want to watch The Nature Collection on DVD. This one is $50 off, with a regular price of $69.95 and is on sale for $19.99. Walmart sells this collection for $60, although it is out of stock.

There is a really great selection of videos on DVD and Blu-ray to choose from besides the ones I’ve mentioned. Amazon offers free shipping on orders that are $25+ so you’ll want to ensure your cart is past that total so you don’t pay extra shipping fees. I know I’m going to stock up on a few for those rainy days this summer where we are stuck inside the house or our trailer. At least if we can’t get outside to see nature, we can watch it on our television.

Amazon Canada: Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light Was $180 | Now $108 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 21, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Philips HF3520 Wake Up Light Was $180 | Now $108 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada has discounted the Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light with colour simulation from $179.99 down to $107.99 with free shipping. This offer is on for today only at Amazon Canada.

Now, this is the HF3520 model of the Philips series of wake-up lights. When price comparing, you need to make sure you compare the right model number or you will end up with very different things. Other retailers sell this same Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light for:

  • $168 @ Walmart Canada
  • $139.99 @ Costco Canada
  • $189.99 @ Well.ca
  • $179.99 @ London Drugs

Amazon Canada’s daily deal price is approximately $22 better than Costco’s price right now – nearly 20%.

Now, this light is different from the lower end models. Unlike the other two models, The HF3520 features morning colour simulation where the light changes from red to orange to yellow, thus mimicking a sunrise. This is the most popular feature of the clock – and the reason why people choose this model over the others. There are some additional benefits as well.

Instead of two or three wake-up sounds, the HF3520 has five different wake-up sounds. You also get two alarm times so you can have your regular morning alarm and then another one for weekends, special occasion, or nap times. The self-adjusting display brightness will react to the environment around you to ensure you can always see the time but that it is not bright enough that it disturbs your sleep. Of course, this model has the sunset simulation in addition to the sunrise simulation so you, or your loved one, can go to bed and wake up with the sun.

A digital FM radio is included and there is a smart snooze button for those times you just want a few extra winks.

I have wanted one of these amazing little lights for a long time now. I tend to have troubles sleeping – not so much getting to sleep – but rather waking up too early and feeling terrible. a light like this helps your body learn an appropriate sleep schedule. When you sleep better, you are far more productive in your daily activities.

As I mentioned before, this is a one-day deal at Amazon Canada.

Today Only: 47% Off Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 20, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Today Only: 47% Off Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Today only, the Garmin Vivofit fitness band is down to just $79.99 at Amazon Canada. Originally priced as high as $149.99, it will also be shipped for absolutely free.

First of all, let me specify that this watch is available in as many as 6 different colours: black, red, slate, teal (green), purple or blue.

Second of all, summer is right around the corner and if you have been meaning to shed some weight, then this watch is for you. It holds you accountable for your laziness by displaying a red move bar after you have been inactive for one hour. Being inactive for one hour may not seem like much but if you have a sitting 9-5 job, then getting up and moving, even just a little bit, is super important for your health.

There is nothing worse than sitting all day and studies have shown that you need to move around at least every hour. Even if it’s a short walk down the hallway, it’s still better than nothing!

I’m actually very tempted to get this watch myself just because I often get caught up in sitting too long. Timers can help with this but a fitness band like the Garmin one is definitely way cooler. What is swaying me the most to potentially get it though is the image above. It made me realize that it’s not just a fitness band, but it can also double as a cool fashion accessory.

On top of motivating you to move, the Garmin Vivofit fitness band is also water resistant, has a long battery life, tracks the quality of your sleep and also counts calories. Out of 56 customers reviews on Amazon, it has received an average rating of 3.5/5 stars. This watch is also much more ecpensive everywhere else:

Now this one that is on sale doesn’t include a heart rate monitor but for the addition of this feature alone, you would be looking at nearly double the price as it’s currently going for $146.61 on Amazon! Personally, I could do without it…

Disney Frozen Royal Colour Change Anna Was $28 | Now $12.75 @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 20, 2015 at 9:15 AM

Disney Frozen Royal Colour Change Anna Was $28 | Now $12.75 @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

Frozen fans will be pleased with Amazon’s deal today on the Disney Frozen Royal Color Change Anna. Regularly $27.99, it is now on sale for $12.75.

While the Frozen fever may have settled just a little bit, I know many little girls who are still belting out “the cold never bothered me anyway” and would love to get another Anna or Elsa doll to their collection. Personally, I wouldn’t pay $30 for any doll, but I would definitely pay less than $15.

This doll is pretty cool too, because she changes colour, depending on if she is hot or cold, just like in the movie. The included perfume bottle can be filled with water and sprayed on Anna to make her cold, where she will change colour.

There are only two reviews on Amazon and both weren’t too impressed with this doll. One stated that she wanted this Frozen scene over with, but really does it matter what the parent wants when it comes to toys? I remember having an obsession with a popular toy or two as a kid and my parents just had to succumb to the fact that that was the only toy I wanted.

Toys R Us is selling the Royal Color Change Elsa for $29.99. Walmart is selling Anna for $24.86. Those are the only stores where I found this doll.

Shipping is not going to be free unless you add an item or two to your cart to get the total up to $25. I did find a few other Frozen dolls also on sale. The styling doll head Elsa looks super fun and is something she might continue to play with after the Frozen frenzy is over. Regularly $34.99, it is selling for $20.25. This would also make the perfect gift for a birthday party. I found this styling head selling from $25 to $45 at other Canadian retailers.

Amazon Canada: Lodge Double Play Reversible Griddle Was $75 | Now $37 & Free Shipping *BUMP*

Posted by on April 20, 2015 at 7:34 AM

Amazon Canada: Lodge Double Play Reversible Griddle Was $75 | Now $37 & Free Shipping *BUMP*

*BUMP! Amazon has further reduced this item from $50 down to $36.99. Take advantage while you can, as it sold out the first time.*

I plan on doing a lot of camping this summer and I know there are many of you who will be too. I know this because trying to get an electrical site at a provincial park in Ontario is a nightmare even months before the dates I want to go! I’m sure the other provinces have the same issue. Since we’ll be doing a lot of camping, we are looking for camping gear and my husband is looking for a griddle and I think I’ve found him one. This Lodge double play reversible grill griddle is perfect for us. It was regularly $75 and now only $49.99 including free shipping at Amazon.

You don’t just have to use this while camping, as you can use it right on your ceramic stove. I hope to use this over the fire and on our portable BBQ. One side is flat, which is great for cooking things like sandwiches, pancakes, eggs and fish. The other side is ribbed for burgers, chicken and other items you want to get those great grill marks on.

I like that this is one item that I need, as space in my vehicle is limited and having to take a griddle and a grill would be a pain! I also like that it is cast iron, as I love cooking pretty much everything on cast iron. I really can’t wait to have my first steak over the fire.

This item has great reviews, giving it a total of four stars out of five. People like the high quality of Lodge products. Some people use it only for camping, others for everyday. I love a versatile product in my kitchen!

It sells for $75 at Sears, $60 at ECS Coffee and $63 at Walmart. This time around, Amazon has the best price and it could change at any time, so don’t wait.

The BBC Natural History Collection On Blu-ray Was $153 | Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on April 17, 2015 at 1:15 PM

The BBC Natural History Collection On Blu ray Was $153 | Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

If you love nature, traveling and seeing the world, you need to check out the BBC Natural History Collection available on blu-ray. This set was $153 but is now only $40 and qualifies for free super saver shipping without any additional purchases. You will save 74%!

Amazon has managed to beat the deal Avigayil blogged about this past November at Best Buy by $15! If you missed it before, you can pick up the amazing BBC Natural History Collection on blu-ray today at a spectacular price. This set includes four stunning documentaries including:

  • Planet Earth
  • Wild China
  • Galapagos
  • Ganges

I have personally seen Planet Earth and Wild China. I loved both of these documentaries. I find one of the best parts is that the shows focus not only on the great animals, plants and diversity of the areas but also on people. Sometimes when you are watching a show like this, it is easy to distance yourself from exotic places that seem far away. By adding the human impact element, BBC has created beautiful documentaries that truly make you consider yourself within the bigger diverse web on earth. The two I have watched were thought provoking and beautiful, and I would watch them repeatedly.

Here is what you will find if you try to buy this series somewhere else.

That Amazon price is looking awesome compared with what else is on the market.

Over on Amazon, reviewers love this series. I see several people mentioning that they are blown away by this series. One person went as far as to note that it was worth buying a home theatre just to watch this beautiful documentary. Fourteen people have rated this collection and it carries a strong five out of five star rating.

If you dig these documentaries, the BBC Natural History Collection 2 is also on sale. This second set was $153.00 but is now on sale for $61.99. Though the discount is not quite as steep, a 59% discount is not too shabby either.

I like to tuck away items like this for just the right celebration. I might keep this series for my husband as a present for Father’s Day. This would also make a lovely Mother’s Day gift or a nice evening in for you and your sweetie. Whatever you choose to do, you need to see this fantastic collection.

Amazon Canada: 26 Free Apps Bundle For Android (Valued At $110)

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 26 Free Apps Bundle For Android (Valued At $110)

Wahoo, free apps! Freshen up your Android device and download a slew of great free apps. Today only, you can grab this bundle of 26 free Android apps. So go crazy and download until you run out of space. They are all completely free!

Here is a sampling of some of the included apps:

  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • Plants vs. Zombies (Wi-Fi Download Only)
  • Runtastic PRO GPS Running, Walking & Fitness Tracker
  • Songsterr Guitar Tabs & Chords
  • CityMaps2Go Pro
  • Table Top Racing
  • Virtua Tennis Challenge
  • Osmos HD

This list just keeps going. Here are some of my favourites that I am excited to download.

Plants vs. Zombies is almost a classic at this point and has been highly reviewed. This is a very addicting game. Move up through the levels so you can get something better to attack those Zombies with than the peashooter. There is also a Wi-Fi download version of this game, perfect for playing. According to Amazon Plants vs. Zombies has been named game of the year in over 30 different publications.

Runtastic Pro  will help you track your fitness. This app has been free before, but you may have missed it. Now that the weather has broken, you may be considering a new fitness routine. In addition, this app will cheer you on and track your progress as you run. Sometimes I need that boost. This app is also ad free.

I am looking forward to trying the Pudding Monsters game. This is a puzzle game designed by the same creators of Cut the Rope. This looks to have fun graphics and I could see it being a lot of fun to squish these little monsters together. Players seem to like that the puzzles become more and more challenging. This looks like an addictive and fun game to play when you have just a few minutes.

I sometimes run out of space for all the freebies I want, so here is a tip. Download everything you may want for now, and then delete any you do not want right away from your device. According to Amazon Canada, the apps stay in the cloud library until you manually delete them. No need to use all your space at once, save a game or two for later in the cloud. I always carry too many photos on my device and most of my space is often is full. This technique helps me take advantage of freebies when I have not yet taken the time to delete my blurry photos.

Amazon Canada: Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set Only $22.67 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada has discounted the Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set to $22.67. While I am not sure how accurate Amazon’s original price was, this set is around 50% off what other retailers sell it for online. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I modified the usual link to the listing, as Amazon Canada’s deal on the knife was not showing up first. That is because another seller is offering immediate shipment whereas Amazon Canada forecasts a two to five week delay in shipping. However, at this price it is certainly worth the wait.

Amazon Canada: Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set Only $22.67 (FS @ $25)

I price compared this set with the few other places I could find it. That other Marketplace seller is selling the Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set for $40.65 with free shipping. At Altitude Sports, the camping set retails for $44.99. I even price compared with eBay, where the cheapest set would cost $34.60 USD = $42 CDN. Essentially, everywhere else I looked for this set is selling it for $40+.

Now that we have established that this is, indeed, a very good deal – let us talk about what you get. The Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set includes five pieces:

  • Waiter knife
  • Stainless steel utility knife
  • Stainless steel paring knife
  • Fork / Spoon Combo
  • Case

The waiter knife includes a large blade, can opener, bottle opener, and cap lifter. In this knife is everything you need for a party: a way to get into the wine and a way to get into that gorgeous microbrewery beer that you drink. A can opener helps open snacks, and the knife can be used to cut them into bite-size snacks. I use my knife to cut cheese all the time.

In all seriousness, this is a fantastic little kit for the backpacker, camper, outdoorsman, and partier alike. I could even see sticking this into my car’s emergency kit. Knives are extremely useful things and you never know when you will need one. Just a couple days ago I was trying to open a package of pepperoni (as a snack when out) and had to use my keys to open it as I was not carrying a knife.

Enjoy Victorinox’s legendary quality and lifetime guarantee! My father owns several Swiss Army knives and they have never let him down.

Amazon Canada: Sons of Anarchy Was $200 | Now $140 & Free Shipping

Aching for a Jax fix? With my favourite show completely over (Sons of Anarchy) and my other favourite show done for the season (Shameless), I need something to tide me over for a while. I could really get into the complete series of Sons of Anarchy and Amazon has a great deal for me. Get Sons of Anarchy: The Complete Series giftset for only $139.99, with a regular price of $199.98. Because it is over $25, free shipping comes along with it.

This giftset would also make a great Father’s Day gift for a lover of the show or for someone who has never seen the show and definitely should. I have to say, I was very disappointed in how it all ended, although I am in the minority with that statement.

I could not really find any details anywhere about what exactly this set contains. I do see that it has 23 discs on DVD with seasons 1 – 7 of the show. On top of that it looks like it has a very cool wood box to keep this collection. Then it has what looks like a replica of the gang’s table with the Sons etched design. On top of that, there is a photobook, which will help you relive your days with Sam Crow.

Reading the reviews on Amazon.com, they say that a real fan will absolutely love and need this set. There are only two reviews on Amazon.ca, but both give it a 5-star rating, citing that its a great set to have.

This is definitely the cheapest you will find set, if you even find it elsewhere. Best Buy was selling it for $184.99, but it is completely sold out. If you wanted just the discs, each season sells for about $25 – $35 a season, bringing your total to a minimum of $175, without all the extras.

Amazon Canada: Cross Shoulder Bag only $8.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 15, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Cross Shoulder Bag only $8.99 & Free Shipping

A marketplace seller on Amazon Canada is selling a basic Canvas Shoulder Bag (cross-body) for just $8.99 with free shipping. While this is not necessarily a sale price (though I think it is), it is an incredible deal for this kind of bag.

Now, here is why I think this may be a sale price, or at least a price drop from a previous price. All colours of the bag, except one, cost $8.99. That other bag is priced at $13.59. There is also another seller on Amazon.ca that sells these bags. That seller wants $11.99 plus $5.54 shipping.

A shoulder bag for $9 and free shipping – what a deal. You can choose from the following colours:

  • Black
  • Army Green
  • Coffee
  • Grey

The grey is actually my favourite colour out of the four. It has a really nice grain to it and would look pretty good paired with jeans or business casual wear.

This is a fairly small cross body bag, so some reviewers have said they do not think it works well for a man. However, it would work well for teenagers and for women commuting. The bag measures 10.6″ x 6.6″ x 2.7″.

As for design, this bag has it all. There are different pouches were you can store your cell phone, credit cards, and keys. Then, there is the largest pouch for everything else like a book, umbrella, sunglasses case, and more. The cell phone compartment will fit phones like the iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy. The three tier compartments ensure you have a place for everything and everything has a place.

As this is a shoulder bag, there is a single adjustable shoulder strap. Just drop over your shoulder and go.

Reviewers have said this is a good quality bag for the price. The size is a bit small for a man’s frame and the adjustable strap is too short for a larger man’s frame as well. However, even men who bought the shoulder bag thought it was a great size to carry all their daily essentials while on the go.

I assume this bag ships in from overseas, but there is no risk of duty as the bag is under $20. Reviewers reported receiving the bag in as little as two weeks.

Today Only! Sex And The City Complete DVD Set Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Watch all of your favourite episodes of Sex and the City again with this fantastic combo pack from Amazon Canada. Right now, you can purchase the complete box set that was $159.99, for only $89.99. That saves you 58% on the list price plus qualifies for free super saver shipping.

Sex and the City is a fantastic show that focuses on love, sex and friendship. Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte are four bachelorette friends living in New York City. The show follows all four of them through hookups, marriage and divorce as they try to navigate the complex web that is life in your twenties and thirties in a fast-paced city. Fashion forward Carrie leads the show. She weekly inspired us with her columns about sex and relationships as she tries everything she can think to balance modern love in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Carrie constantly consults her three closest friends, who also are also running into hilarious snags with their love lives. This shows is full of laughs, memorable quotes and lots of fantastic fashion to ogle.

This is a good series to unwind with at the end of the day with a glass of wine. I was always rehashing this show with my friends the next day after a new episode when it was new show. The series has a huge following still. If you ever visit New York City, you can take tours that show you all the places the show was filmed.

This set includes all six seasons on DVD. Several reviewers are reporting that this set includes both Sex And The City movies, although I cannot find any details that specify that from Amazon and confirm that it includes the movies. The first movie was decent, but you are not missing much if you missed the second movie in my opinion. The series was where these characters shined. Ratings on this DVD set are very high with a four and a half star rating with over 60 reviews. According to Amazon Canada, this series is ranked number three in the category television comedy on DVD. There is a lot of competition in that category! A few reviewers had trouble with the packaging being tough. I would open this carefully the first time to avoid damaging the discs.

Checking around the web, this set is starting to get harder to find than it was a few years back. Costco Canada is the closest to Amazon Canada’s deal, selling this Sex and the City box set for $89.99. This set sells @ Chapters for $159.99. A similar set was available @ Best Buy Canada for $149.99 but is now out of stock.

Grab this set now, this is a special one day deal. I am going to grab a copy for myself, and plan a night for my friends when it arrives to watch the first episode.
