Amazon.ca: The Mel Brooks Collection [Blu-ray] Only $21 (FS @ $25) (EXPIRED)

Amazon.ca: The Mel Brooks Collection [Blu ray] Only $21 (FS @ $25) (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada is selling The Mel Brooks Collection [Blu-ray] for only $20.99 today. It is a one-day special and certainly not one you want to miss if you are a fan of this master comedian.

If you do not know who Mel Brooks is… I do not think we can be friends. The guy is a genius! While other people memorize the lines of Monty Python (ya, I know… ya love them), I was saying “candy gram for Mongo” to clueless classmates. This eight-disc set includes the following films:

  • Blazing Saddles
  • High Anxiety
  • History of the World Part I
  • Robin Hood: Men in Tights
  • Silent Movie
  • To Be or Not to Be
  • Twelve Chairs
  • Young Frankenstein

I love watching Blazing Saddles because it is such a beautiful commentary on racism and how we approach the ‘other': people who are different than we are. Young Frankenstein is just hilarious and features the incredible acting skills of one slightly demented Gene Wilder. This movie features the best Igor you will ever meet.

My favourite Mel Brooks movie has to be Robin Hood: Men in Tights. I quote that movie more than any other Mel Brooks movie. It has brilliant scripting, fantastic names (Hey Blinkin!), and incredible personalities. Of course, men in tights cross-dressing as women to get into a tournament is a priceless moment. In addition, there are some great songs and horrible archery skills displayed. A real must watch for anyone who enjoys great comedy and a butchered story line.

I price compared this set with other retails and that is why I just had to post this deal:

  • $50 @ Walmart Canada
  • $59.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $65.99 @ Future Shop Canada

Amazon Canada lists an original price of $79.99, which is a bit high give the current retail prices. However, this is still an amazing deal as the set is less than half the price of the nearest competitor.

Amazon Canada offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. You may want to pop something else in your cart to reach that threshold. I suggest a DVD for $6.99 and under or a Blu Ray for $9.99 or under. Those sections will give you a good movie to top your cart up for the free shipping.

I already own the DVD set, but I am debating upgrading to the Blu-Ray. What do you think?

Red Dwarf: The Complete Collection DVD Was $227 Now $70 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 28, 2015 at 2:33 PM

Red Dwarf: The Complete Collection DVD Was $227 Now $70 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca! (EXPIRED)

This is a classic BBC comedy show and it’s on offer today! You can pick up the whole entire collection of Red Dwarf on DVD for only $69.99 with free super saver shipping. The previous price was $227.25 so that’s technically a 69% discount. Sixty-nine dude!

This exact box set isn’t for sale at many other online stores to price compare. I did find it for sale here on Walmart for $155, or you can buy it used on Chapters here for $130. Overall, the $70 price on Amazon.ca is very good indeed – that works out about $8.75 per season of the show.

Honestly, this was one of my favourite shows when I was younger. I’ve got all the DVDs and I’ve seen all the episodes a few times. Sometimes I wait a few years between watching them, and they’re still very funny indeed. This reviewer on Amazon agrees with me on that one:

 

Red Dwarf: The Complete Collection DVD Was $227 Now $70 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca! (EXPIRED)

 

While this DVD title is called Red Dwarf: The Complete Collection, it’s technically not all the seasons that were produced. There was a further two seasons made after the release of this box set. But when they got to the eighth season, Red Dwarf kind of jumped the shark. The writing went downhill, the situations more and more unbelievable and seasons nine and ten just are not great at all. If you really need to though, you can purchase them separately. The Red Dwarf TV show scores 8.6/10 here on IMDB, so that’s a super high score and should tell you that the early seasons really were something special.

I recall a few years back, watching an interview with Patrick Stewart, AKA Jean-Luc Picard from the infamous Enterprise: The Next Generation. He was stuck in a hotel in London somewhere, and he was channel-surfing and came across Red Dwarf. Here’s the interview – it’s a good one.

If you don’t take my opinion for it, maybe you’ll listen to Patrick Stewart. Red Dwarf: The Complete Collection DVD Was $227 Now $70 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca! (EXPIRED)

Take 66% Off Lalaloopsy Bubbly Mermaid Doll Pearly Seafoam for Just $18 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 28, 2015 at 1:04 PM

Take 66% Off Lalaloopsy Bubbly Mermaid Doll Pearly Seafoam for Just $18 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

What little girl doesn’t love the Lalaloopsy dolls? Amazon Canada has a great deal right now on the Lalaloopsy Bubbly Mermaid Doll named Pearly Seafoam. This doll would have normally cost you $40, but right now you can pay just $17.78 while quantities last. If you spend $25, you can get free shipping too.

While I had originally thought that the price of $40 was inflated, that is not the case. This Lalaloopsy Bubbly Mermaid Doll does retail for around $40 at other Canadian retailers. I took a look at Walmart, Toys R Us and some other stores to make sure that this is the best deal around on this Lalaloopsy doll. This doll sells for $35 Walmart.ca (but is sold out). Toys R Us also has this Lalaloopsy doll for $38.

After reading some reviews on the Lalaloopsy Pearly Seafoam Bubbly Mermaid Doll, I think you will find that this is a great bath toy for younger girls. Here is one of the Amazon.ca customer reviews on this product:

My daughters (4 and 7) received this Lalaloopsy Pearly Seafoam Bubbly Mermaid Doll as a gift, and they adore it! They love the crazy idea of bubbles coming out of her head, and it produces them very quickly, with just a few squeezes of the tail. I like that it has been very easy to clean up – with water squirt toys I always worry about it getting yucky, but that has not been a problem with this one. It’ is much cooler than the colour-changing Ariel or Barbie mermaid, which don’t really change that much anyway.

One of the common complaints I found for this toy, is that the dress is fabric and takes a long time to dry after bath time. Otherwise this seems to be a great toy. The doll comes with an adorable pet blowfish that squirts water. The bubble solution is included. Just fill her tail with the bubbles and then squeeze her tail to make lots of fun bubbles. I am sure once the bubble solution runs out, you can just grab ordinary bubbles from Walmart or the Dollar Store. At least that is what I have done with bubble toys in the past.

If you have two little girls in your family, you may want to purchase two of these Pearly Seafoam Lalaloopsy Bubbly Mermaid Dolls. That way, you also receive free shippingsince Amazon.ca does not include shipping costs unless you spend over $25.

Dirt Devil Quick Lite Plus Vacuum Was $146 | Now $52 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 27, 2015 at 9:15 AM

Dirt Devil Quick Lite Plus Vacuum Was $146 | Now $52 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Cleaning can be a drag with a heavy vacuum. Check out the Dirt Devil Quick Lite Plus Vacuum and get the job done quickly and painlessly. This bagless vacuum was $145.59 but is now only $52.21 @Amazon.ca. To sweeten the deal, this item qualifies for free shipping.

I am not a vacuum expert. I do however know a thing or two about cleaning up messes. My preschooler keeps me well on my toes making sure there are plenty of crumbs and dirt to clean. Please do not look under my kitchen table. Yesterday I think I saw a half-eaten snow pea trying to attack my cat.

I try to avoid the problem for the poor cat by running the vacuum regularly, especially on the main floor. I have a Dyson vacuum at my house. The vacuum does the job however rarely does it make it up to the second floor. The stairs only see the vacuum around four to six times a year. Part of my reluctance bringing my vacuum upstairs is the weight. Imagine lugging a big clunky vacuum up the stairs while the preschooler and the cat attempt to run circles around you. Sounds like a fun afternoon at the hospital.

I have been intending to buy a vacuum that is lighter in weight. One of the main complaints lightweight and stick vacuums have is often inadequate suction. This Dirt Devil vacuum seems to provide the suction necessary for small spaces and quick cleaning. It has a HEPA filter, which is always on my list for a good vacuum. Several consumers have mentioned they use their vacuum on multiple surfaces such as hard wood and vinyl in the Q&A. Having a vacuum that works on multiple surfaces is also important to me for under my kitchen table.

I did a little price snooping and only found this particular model @ Staples.ca for $89.94. My guess is that because this model is light and somewhat compact, it is a great vacuum for an office environment also. I also found a similar model, the Dirt Devil Dynamite Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum at Homedepot.ca for $79.99. The Home Depot model is similar though it does not include a hepa filter. The Home Depot model also specifically mentions a mode for cleaning hard wood.

Reviews seem to be pretty good overall with most reviewers on Amazon giving it four or five stars.

Surprisingly a good little “sucker”.

Another happy reviewer liked this vacuum for small cleaning jobs.

Easy to assemble, and store away because it is smaller. It is also pretty powerful suction wise for the small jobs I need so it is good very so far!

One or two reviewers have complained about the loudness or the length of the cord. Most reviewers overall seem happy with this vacuum for taking care of small jobs. I would say if you are looking for a quick cleanup vacuum for little messes, this Dirt Devil is a good pick. I would use this Dirt Devil as part of my daily cleaning routine. I might pull out a bigger vacuum to clean up that container of rice my preschooler just spilled on the floor.

Amazon.ca: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Was $20 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 3:15 PM

Amazon.ca: Tom Clancys Splinter Cell Blacklist Was $20 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

A secondary seller (biddeal) on Amazon Canada has discounted Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Day 1 Xbox 360 game from $19.99 down to $14.39 with free shipping.

There are two reasons why this deal is very good. First, you receive free shipping on the game without a minimum. Second, the price from Biddeal on Amazon Canada is better than anywhere else I can find this game. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist costs $19.99 at EB Games plus shipping. While not in stock online at Walmart Canada, my closest stores are selling the Xbox 360 version for $21.

Amazon.ca: Tom Clancys Splinter Cell Blacklist Was $20 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

So, what is the game all about? Well, the good ol’ United States has forces in about two-thirds of the world’s countries and some of them are quite fed up with it. They start a blacklist of escalating attacks on US interests both at home and abroad. Sam Fisher must try to stop these attacks and find out who is behind it all before it is too late. If that sounds like a riot to you, then pick up the game. The game has many good reviews on Amazon including this one:

I’m a long time splinter cell fan and have always loved the series. This is one of the best games of 2013 IMO. A lot better and longer then conviction, but it has that conviction feel, which is a good thing. I haven’t tried the multi-player yet but I’ve heard good things. The side missions were also really nice

The game allows you to build your own playing style and rewards you for your choices instead of punishing you for not playing one specific way. Co-op play is back with plenty of maps and mission. There is also a spies versus mercenaries mode for asymmetrical game play. There is plenty to do and tons of options to customize your fun. There are really interesting features where Sam can abduct and carry enemies as well as kill multiple enemies at one.

Now, if you have a PS3, not all is lost. Amazon Canada is selling the PlayStation 3 version for $15.12 but shipping is only free on orders of $25 or more. Again, this is far cheaper than the competition as EB Games has the same game for $19.99 new and you would have to pay additional shipping on that as well. However, that free shipping minimum makes it not as good of a deal as the Xbox version from the secondary-seller on Amazon.

Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection DVD, Was $62 Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 7:46 AM

Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection DVD, Was $62 Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon! (EXPIRED)

For today only, Amazon.ca has a great price on a great little piece of nostalgia – the complete DVD collection of Saved by the Bell! Originally priced at $61.99, you can get this classic TV show for only $27.49 with free super saver shipping.

In the above DVD deal, you are getting all four seasons of this show which actually started airing in 1989. Way back in April 2014, this DVD set had dropped to $24.99 for a couple of days, but I haven’t see it that low since then. And as for a price comparison just now, the very same DVD boxset is $45 @ Staples, $46 @ Chapters, $50 @ Walmart. The Amazon price today is really great.

I am sure you are all familiar with the show, but just in case you are not, here’s a quick blurb:

A TV show centered on six students and their years at Bayside High School in Palisades, California.

I was surprised to see that this show only gets a score of 7.0/10 on IMDB, I thought it would have gotten higher ratings.

I LOVED THIS SHOW!!! I was only aged 8 at the point when the show first started, but I don’t recall watching it at that early age. However, it must have been the re-runs that hooked me, and created my first ever teenage crush… on Zack Morris, of course. Look at him now – still hot! Since Saved by the Bell, he’s been in a lot of other TV shows which you will recognise such as CSI and Weeds. It looks like he never gets major roles though; they’re usually single-episode, bit parts.

As for the other characters, actors and actresses, I recently spotted “Kelly Kapowski” (Tiffani Thiessen) with a fairly major role in the TV show White Collar. I’ve seen the first five seasons of this show and I am waiting for the next season to be made available on Netflix. And you know what? She’s hardly changed at all – you can easily recognise her as Kelly!

Chrome 6 Person Toastess Party Grill & Raclette Was $50 now $28 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca! (EXPIRED)

Chrome 6 Person Toastess Party Grill & Raclette Was $50 now $28 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca! (EXPIRED)

If anyone has been looking out for a deal on a grill/raclette for your home, there’s a potential deal happening at Amazon just now. This chrome 6 Person Toastess Party Grill and Raclette was originally priced at $49.99 but you can grab it just now for only $27.96 with free super saver shipping!

As I write this blog post, the Amazon site says that there are only five of this item left, But they do say that there are more on the way. What usually happens with this is that they change the status to “temporarily out of stock” but you can still place your orders. Then, they ship it out to you as soon as more arrive. If you see that status when you click through above, just be aware that you can still place your order at this price.

This raclette does seem like a very basic model, here are a few items from the features:

  • Non-stick grill surface
  • Immersible grill plate for easy cleaning
  • On/off switch with indicator light

There are only a couple of customer reviews on Amazon, including:

Our daughter loves the Party Grill and they have so much fun together sit around, talk, eat. The Party Grill is perfect! A wonderful present for a birthday.

I agree – When we last used a raclette, we had to borrow it from my sister. I don’t own one myself, but it is an item on my wish list for my kitchen. My little four-year old daughter really loved the novelty of the grill being in the middle of the table… prepping a little tray of food for herself, and heating it up on the raclette (with our supervision, of course).

Price-wise, I cannot find this exact make and model currently for sale and in stock anywhere else in Canada. But, I did find a very similar one on sale here for $38 @ Walmart. That one is slightly bigger though, they claim it is for 8 persons. If you’ve never before used a raclette and are interested in trying one out, then this model from Amazon won’t break the bank.

This is the lowest price that Amazon has offered on this KitchenAid 5 Speed Diamond Stand Blender. It will even add some spunk to your kitchen decor with the vibrant Empire Red colour.

There are many reviews on this product, many customers seem satisfied. Here is one of the Amazon customer reviews:

Hands down this is the best blender on the market and it is a better price than those expensive Ninja, Vitamix, etc blenders that cost double or triple and do NOT do the job. This blender WILL make your food smooth. I tested many of the others and found they are sub-par. Look at YouTube for great reviews on this blender and watch it outperform others. I make veggie smoothies every morning – kale, herbs, greens, more greens, and one banana. I am picky about chunks – I want it smooth!

Amazon Canada also ships any purchase over $25 for free. That means that your purchase of this KitchenAid blender will automatically qualify for free shipping. By ordering today, you should receive your purchase in the next 2 or 3 business days.

SentrySafe 500 Fire Safe Box | Was $38 Now $20 @ Amazon.ca (FS on $25+)

Posted by on January 22, 2015 at 8:30 AM

SentrySafe 500 Fire Safe Box | Was $38 Now $20 @ Amazon.ca (FS on $25+)

Keep one New Year’s resolution to get organized this year. Protect your important documents and electronic files safely with the SentrySafe 500 FireSafe Box. This fire safe box was $38 but has temporarily dropped to only $19.98. Free shipping is available for all orders over $25.

At some point, we all think about what we would do in the case of an emergency and how we would react. Purchase the SentrySafe 500 Fire-safe box and take one more step to protecting your family. This fire safe box is large enough to include all of your most important documents and files. On the inside it is roughly 3” X 9” X 7” or .15 cubic feet. If you have full sheets of paper you want to protect, you would need to fold them in half.

Where this box really works is if you have electronic files you want to safeguard. DVDs, flash drives and CDs will be protected up to 1550 degrees Fahrenheit. This box also locks and is waterproof. It comes with half an hour proven fire protection. It also comes with an after fire replacement lifetime guarantee and a limited warranty.

This one hits a bit personally for me. Several years ago we got a call early in the morning from my father-in-law.  A spark had ignited in the garage from a wire shorting on his old deep freezer that was over 20 years old. Fortunately all of the family got out of the house, but we lost many family heirlooms and photos, and the entire house was demolished and rebuilt. Right after this tragedy struck our family, my husband and I purchased our own fireproof box and made sure to check into all of our insurance policies closely. At the time, I paid over $60 plus shipping for a box that is of a similar size to this one.

I took a look around to price check this particular box. This model is not for sale many other places. I did find a similar Honeywell brand fire/water resistant box at Canadian Tire that is $30 but only available in store. Besthomesafe.net carries a few of these smaller boxes in the Sentry brand in other models but they start at $30 and go up in price and size plus you will pay shipping costs.

Reviews all seem to be pretty solid on this safe and most people are praising the quality. It is rated number 9 in the category: Tools & Home Improvement > Safety & Security > Safes on Amazon.ca. In case you are curious how it holds up, one reviewer has done the legwork for you.

The safe does exactly what it is meant to do. My friend took a small torch lighter thing to it and it made no difference to the outside of the box.

Free shipping is available for orders over $25 and you are not far off. These boxes are not light and often shipping will be expensive due to weight. This particular box weight 5kg and they are estimating shipping is just over $17 for me without super saver shipping. Grab yourself some Skittles and Starbursts from the other day and top off your order.

Take 50% Off Play-Doh Magical Designs Palace Just $12.50 @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on January 20, 2015 at 3:40 PM

Take 50% Off Play Doh Magical Designs Palace Just $12.50 @ Amazon Canada

It is rather cold outside, and during the Winter months we keep ourselves occupied with trying to entertain the kids indoors. Play-Doh may be a wonderful solution for your family. Right now, Amazon Canada has the Play-Doh Magical Designs Palace on sale for for 50% off the regular price. You will pay just $12.50 for hours of fun with your little ones.

This Play-Doh palace is about as magical as Play-Doh gets. This Play-Dog Magical Designs Palace for just $12.50 will allow your little girl to create magical moments in the palace with Aurora. This set is best suited for children ages 3 and up. Let’s face it, name a child under 3 who does not try to eat Play-Doh? None!

How do you create a sparkly palace that is good enough for a princess, you ask? Simply decorate the castle with the Play-Doh modeling compound as well as the Play-Doh sparkling compound. There is an extruder that will allow you to create as many dresses as you like for the beautiful Princess Aurora figurine. You can even make candles for her birthday cake.

Included in this Play-Doh Magical Designs Palace is the 2 piece castle facade, a bridge extruder, doll top, 2 dress attachments, cake attachment, 2 tower tops, 2 containers of Play-Doh and 2 containers of sparkle Play-Doh. I did a little price comparison just to ensure that this is the best deal around. This Play-Doh set seems to sell for double the price at other retailers. You will pay $24.94 Walmart.ca for this Play-Doh Set or the next best price is $18.67 ToysRUs.ca.

Here is one of the customer reviews for this Play-Doh Magical Designs Palace:

This Magical Design Palace from Play-Doh came in a few days ago and my daughter has played with it ever since. I was afraid that pressing the level so the Play-Doh comes out of the dresses or the cake would be too hard for my almost 4 year old but turns out that she can do it like a pro! Play-Doh will get stuck in some areas but is easy to clean up using a toothpick. My little girl also loves just playing with the doll itself! All in all it’s a great set.

I suggest adding two of these to your cart, or if you have a little boy then maybe he will prefer the Play-Doh Diggin Rigs Buzz Saw which is also only $12.50 from Amazon.ca. If you add two of these Play-Doh sets to your cart then you will also qualify for free shipping. Amazon.ca allows free shipping on all orders over $25 after discounts.

Skittles & Starburst Fun Size Packs (50 Count) | Was $9 Now $5.37 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 20, 2015 at 11:11 AM

Skittles & Starburst Fun Size Packs (50 Count) | Was $9 Now $5.37 @ Amazon.ca

Yum, Skittles and Starburst! Check out this 50 pack of fun size Skittles and Starbursts. Originally $9 you can now score a box for only $5.37. Free shipping is available if you spend a minimum of $25 on your final order @ Amazon.ca.

On the horizon are several holidays that would be perfect excuses to taste the rainbow and pick up these Skittles and Starbursts. This box includes 50 fun size treats perfect for Valentine’s Day. They would easily stuff into Valentine’s Day goody bags or can be attached to paper hearts to give to your friends.

I will make it even one step easier for you. Here is a free printable for a Skittle’s Valentines from Kreations By Kara. For the Starbursts, here is a free printable to make Starburst Valentine’s from it’s Always Autumn. Look at that! You can click, print, tape and have those Valentine’s done in no time at all. Everyone will think you are so clever. If you and your friend both show up at a party with the same Valentines, you can have a great laugh about how much you both love Bargainmoose.

Alternatively, if you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with any kind of event or party this pack of candy could come in handy. Since both candies are in rainbow colours, they make a natural pairing with leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold for St. Patricks Day. Or you can eat some candy yourself while you have a nice green beer.

These are a bit tricky to price compare. I did find a similar sized box of Starbursts and Skittles at Walmart for $8. The kicker is the candy is only available in store and you will still pay more.

I think this is a great deal on candies that can be used for multiple holidays. I find that often the only individual fun packs that go on clearance or sale are packs geared to a specific holiday, making it difficult to give out later. You look a little strange giving out green and red Christmas candy on Valentine’s Day.

Eva, one of our long-time Bargainmoose bloggers, recently posted about M&M’s on Amazon that were at a great price. While the M&M’s on that post sold out quickly, I noticed the 130 gram 12 pack Snickers Bites Eva mentioned are an even better price today. The pack of Snickers Bites was $34.68, dropped to $17.45 the other day and today has dropped even lower to $14.21.

If you do have a taste for M&M’s check out the M&M’s 48 gram 24 count box was $30.96 now $9.88. I would probably stash these away for sliding into my bag when I go to the movie theatre. They will be a great treat unless the kid finds them first!

Free shipping is available for orders over $25 every day at Amazon. Throw a couple different candies in your cart and your sweets can be headed to your house with free shipping in no time. Or pair it with that Valentine’s Day gift you have been meaning to order.

Bargainmooser,s what is your favourite candy to give with Valentines?

Amazon Canada: Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection On DVD | Was $125 Now $45

Posted by on January 20, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection On DVD | Was $125 Now $45

(BUMP: The price on this Boxset went back up to full price, but it’s down again, back at a lower price!)

Good morning, my fellow Bargainmoosers! Amazon has  is continuing their savings-filled march to Black Friday this deal for Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection on DVD. It normally sells on Amazon for $124.98, but you can now buy it for $45.99 $44.99! You’ll also qualify for free shipping when you purchase this huge box set! This deal is only valid today, so get it while you still have a chance.

For those who aren’t aware, Are You Being Served? was a popular comedy program that played on the British BBC network. Episodes of this comedy show were also played on YTV here in Canada (and I’m sure it was on some other channels as well, but I specifically remember finding it on YTV late at night when I was a child, and it continued to be played when I was a teen).

This is a cute set for fans of this hilarious British show. My best friend was born in England, and I still specifically remember his Grandma and Mom watching this series and having a great time while doing so. This Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection on DVD set would certainly please fans of the series, since it’s packed with tons of episodes spanning 14 DVDs. It could be a great gift for the holidays.

If you wanted to buy this Are You Being Served? The Complete Collection on DVD from WalMart Canada, it would cost you $94.21 (that’s more than double the price on Amazon today). I’ve included a brief review of this set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

 I have been a huge fan of Are You Being Served for decades. This complete series is a necessary part of my DVD collection. The episodes need no comment, they are funny, entertaining, a great British show.

I have dark circles because I often stay up very late to write essays, and I don’t find most of the de-puffing eye treatments that are on the market work. I didn’t have much hope for this product either. This Live Clean Fresh Face De-Puffing Roller Eye Treatment actually works amazingly well. At first the results were not very significant, but after 2 or 3 days, I can tell that may eyes are noticeably better. It took me a while to find this product, and I would definitely come back to buy it again.

I did a little research to make sure that this is the lowest price around. This Live Clean Fresh De-Puffing Roller Eye Treatment was $21.56 Well.ca but is now discontinued.

Buy 3 Select TV Series on DVD & Get Extra $10 Off @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 19, 2015 at 11:08 AM

Buy 3 Select TV Series on DVD & Get Extra $10 Off @ Amazon.ca

Here is a sweet little deal where you can pick up a couple of great classic TV series. Amazon is offering an extra $10 off when you purchase 3 select TV series on DVDs. Free shipping is available on orders over $25 and it’s likely your order can easily reach that total depending on the series you choose.

Snatch up some of your favourite TV series while they are hot, folks. I can see some of these DVD sets making great Valentine’s Day presents. The selection of these DVDs seems to be a mix of classic TVv shows and more modern sci-fi, and favourite TV series from the last 20 years or so. The good news is there are some great series to be snatched up here and the prices are low to begin with, averaging between $8 to $10 per season.

Some of the more modern series available include:

  • Firefly
  • 24
  • Archer
  • Prison Break
  • White Color
  • Burn Notice
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Futurama
  • The X Files
  • Buffy
  • Angel
  • Stargate SG-1
  • Lie To Me
  • American Dad
  • Malcom In The Middle
  • Planet of The Apes
  • Saving Grace
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Also included in the list are some classic shows including:

  • Green Acres
  • Mash
  • Remington Steel
  • The Mary Tyler Moore Show

You can really see a clear divide between two different TV eras, looking at that list. The good news is you can mix and match to get a taste of both if you have a foot in each camp.

I have to admit I am partial to a couple on this list. My hubby and I worked our way through Buffy from beginning to end, while we were still dating. The series writing is written really well. Buffy is witty and has lots of action. It is hard not to cheer on a kick-butt chick, fighting zombies while trying to maintain some semblance of a life in high school in the 90s. I could see easily snagging Buffy again to watch from beginning to end. Once you get hooked you may be craving more and it is a great time to pick up the spinoff/crossover series Angel also.

There are many great quotable lines including one of my favorites:

If the apocalypse comes, beep me. – Buffy

If you are in the mood for a great comedy do not overlook How I Met Your Mother. Those syndicated reruns will not be playing forever folks! My favourite thing about this series is it really is a series that you can pick up in the middle and still enjoy episode by episode, with lots of laughs. If you watch this series from beginning to end, you will catch more of the complexity of the story the writers add between the laughs. At its core, this series is a comedy that is a great to unwind to at the end of a long day. It will not take long before you are cheering for Ted, Robin, Lily, Marshal and even Barney and wishing you had a spot at their table at the bar as they navigate life in their 20s and 30s.

If you see many series on the list you like, I would recommend creating more than one order. For every 3 series you purchase, you can receive $10 off. So if you want to score all 11 seasons of MASH for example, you may want to split it up into multiple orders to save more. Here’s an example, to show you what we mean:

Buy 3 Select TV Series on DVD & Get Extra $10 Off @ Amazon.ca

The first three seasons of MASH come to around $27. But as you can see above, it totals $16.97 AND you get free shipping as well, as the pre-discounted price was above $25. Sweet!

Bargainmoosers, what is one of your favourite series on this list?

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

Posted by on January 18, 2015 at 1:30 PM

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

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.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.
