Amazon Canada: $109 Off Tassimo Coffee Maker T47 – Now Just $59 & Free Shipping! (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: $109 Off Tassimo Coffee Maker T47    Now Just $59 & Free Shipping! (EXPIRED)

Coffee lovers, there is a fantastic deal on a coffee maker at Amazon but you better jump on it quick if you want it! The Tassimo coffee maker T47 is on sale for just $59, which is a $108.99 from its original price of $167.99 — that’s 65% off! Shipping is free as well.

Amazon’s deal are such that they can end at any moment, so if you want this nifty coffee maker, then make sure to not wait to get it, especially since it’s much more expensive everywhere else:

Surprisingly, it actually has a total over 40 customer reviews and a total of 4.5/5 stars. That’s really quite amazing and coupled with the price drop, it definitely pushes this little coffee maker over the moon. I’m just kidding of course but if I didn’t already have a Keurig, I would probably get this machine because of the many perks and the positive reviews.

Reviewers praised the Tassimo for its sleek appearance that looks great on any counter top and also for its great-tasting coffee. Ultimately, you don’t need much more than that, do you? Amazon Canada: $109 Off Tassimo Coffee Maker T47    Now Just $59 & Free Shipping! (EXPIRED)

Tassimo T47 is fully automatic, which means that you merely need to press one button to make your coffee. However, you do have the option to customize your drink by making it pour less or more of coffee.

It utilizes T-Discs and what’s cool about those is that the Tassimo will know exactly what you’re wanting to drink and will make it just right by scanning the bar-code. The Tassimo is also marketed as being lightweight, so depending on how your kitchen is designed, you could technically keep it stashed away in a cupboard and then bust it out as soon as you need it. Personally, I would definitely keep it on display and move the other small appliances out of the way if I had a lack of counter-space but that’s just me!

The Tassimo T47 coffee maker also features:

  • 2.5kg overall weight
  • 1.39L water reservoir
  • noise reduction
  • 1-touch operation

Plus with summer around the corner, it can also brew iced coffee!

Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1-3 Blu-Ray Box Set + FREE T-Shirt – Now $46 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!)

Posted by on May 16, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1 3 Blu Ray Box Set + FREE T Shirt   Now $46 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!)

Have you been meaning to find out what exactly all the hype is surrounding The Walking Dead show? Here’s your chance: right now at Amazon, you can get a seasons 1-3 Blu-Ray box set of this incredible show on sale for just $45.99. That’s a 71% price drop from its regular price of $159.99! It will also be shipped absolutely free.

Amazon’s $114 price drop on this box set is actually the lowest we have ever seen and as much as I’m sure many of you are tempted to download this series, it would be much better to just buy it on sale right now, especially since it’s in Blu-Ray!

For those of you who speak French or prefer to watch shows in French, then you will be happy to know that this box set is bilingual.

Reviews are stellar of course, like this one from a 5/5 happy reviewer:

OMG! Love this show, got it 2 days after I purchased on Amazon. Plus the T-Shirt was a bonus! It was cheaper on Amazon to buy the three seasons together vs separately. I am very happy with my purchase! Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1 3 Blu Ray Box Set + FREE T Shirt   Now $46 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!)

The extra t-shirt is definitely a nice freebie but keep in mind that you can’t choose the size. According to reviews, it comes in a standard XL size, so if that’s yours or your hubby’s size, then awesome! Otherwise, you could try one of Kristy’s 8 Hacks To Refashion Your Clothes For Spring. The lace insert could be the best suited for The Walking Dead shirt and as for the size, you could try making it smaller with one of the many tutorials available online like this one from BurdaStyle.

In case you have somehow never heard of The Walking Dead or you have but you just don’t know anything about it, this shows is basically all about zombies. The story follows Rick Grimes, a Sheriff’s deputy who awakens from a month-long coma after a run-in with criminals. Upon waking, he discovers that the world is now overrun with zombies and he must do everything to survive as he searches for his missing wife and son. There is of course much more to it, but you will just have to watch it to find out all of the twists and turns.

Amazon Canada: 37 Free Apps for Android ($110 Value)

Posted by on May 14, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 37 Free Apps for Android ($110 Value)

To kick the Victoria Day long weekend off, Amazon Canada is offering 37 free apps for your Android phone. These apps have a combined value of $110, so this is a great freebie for Android phone users.

I will not give you details on every app (as that is a fairly long list) but here are a few popular apps and a few of my favourites as well.

First, AVG AntiVirus PRO Android Security is one of the best applications you can score during this offer. Regularly priced at $14.99, this app is now free for downloading. While AVG does offer a free basic phone security app, this software is far more advanced and will protect your smart phone far better than the standard free version. This app offers:

  • Protection – AntiVirus
  • Performance – Battery, Data and Storage management + Task Killer
  • Anti-Theft – device location
  • Privacy – App Locker, App Backup, Call & Message Blocker

I am sending this free app to all my friends who own android phones: most of them have Samsung Galaxy phones actually.

Next, we transition over to fun! The Game Of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series app is discounted from $5.89 to free! If you are a fan of the Game of Thrones series, then this is a must-have app. The graphics are superb and the characters really do resemble themselves quite well. There are in-app purchases, as with most games, but these are not mandatory for game play.

Smart Office 2 is my next pick from the selection of free games. I know so many people frustrated that they cannot get Microsoft Office on their android device. Well, Smart Office 2 allows you to edit and save word documents. On top of that, you can annotate (not edit) PDF files as well as save, export, and convert PDF files. Essentially, every Android phone user needs this app. The app has a value of $10.29 but is now free.

There are plenty of other games and utilities yo get your hands on while they are free. Here are a few other honourable mentions:

Check out all 37 games through the main link above. I have already sent this deal to a couple friends of my own and am pleased to share it with you as well. These apps are free for download from the Amazon.ca Appstore.

Amazon Canada: Franklin Bean Bag & Ring Toss Was $40 | Now $20 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on May 13, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Franklin Bean Bag & Ring Toss Was $40 | Now $20 (FS @ $25)

What I love about working for Bargainmoose is that I’m not just finding hot deals for our readers, but also for myself. Since I see deals every single day, all day long, I really have to pace myself and not just buy everything I see that I want. But, every now and then comes a deal that is perfect for myself or my family and I have to get it. This Franklin bean bag/ring toss game is one of those deals. Regularly $39.99, it is now on sale for $19.99 at Amazon.

Since we are campers, we need games and other outdoor activities to keep ourselves busy while we chill at our campsite. I also need some backyard activities that keep the kids busy since we aren’t interested in getting them a climber this year and I’ve had it with sandboxes. This bean bag/ring toss game is perfect for all of those needs.

I’ve already sent the link to my husband, who I’m sure is getting out his credit card and purchasing this game. He has been looking for something like this for a while. Last year he made his own bean bag toss game, but the problem is that it is made from heavy wood and does not fold up, which is a problem when your space is limited on the way to your campsite. While I don’t know if this one actually folds up, it is quite a bit less bulky than the one he made.

I see that Franklin is well-known for making sports equipment like this, so I’m going to trust that it is good quality. It sells in quite a few stores in Canada, but every other store sells it for the regular price of $39.99, including:

Best Buy is the only spot I saw a review and the reviewer gave it four stars:

I also received this product in great shape, the price was great, but just wish it was more sturdy, but the family loves it when we go to the cottage.

I think this item is great for any sort of summer fun time, like the cottage or a backyard party.

Shipping is free once you’ve spent $25, so get a few add on items and don’t pay that extra fee.

Amazon.ca: Black & Decker Dual Temperature Heat Gun Only $20 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on May 13, 2015 at 10:32 AM

Amazon.ca: Black & Decker Dual Temperature Heat Gun Only $20 (FS @ $25)

Amazon.ca has discounted the Black & Decker Dual Temperature Heat Gun from $62.27 down to $19.99. While I think this ‘original’ price is a bit of a stretch, this is the cheapest price I could find this heat gun for online.

Finding this Black & Decker heat gun in Canada was difficult. The only other place in Canada that had the gun was Walmart, and they are selling it for $29.94. I checked out Lowes Canada, but their closest option was the HomeRight Dual Temperature Heat Gun for $24.99. It is not the same brand and it is not a brand I recognize either.

I turned to the USA for a little price checking. At Home Depot I found the same heat gun for $29.97 USD. Amazon.com also has the same heat gun for $34.99 USD. Given that our exchange rate adds on around 20% onto each of those prices, I figured that the deal at Amazon Canada was well worth blogging about.

The Black & Decker HG1300 Dual Temperature Heat Gun has 2 temperature settings: 750 degrees and 1000 degrees. I may be a carpenter’s daughter, but it does not mean I am familiar with all tools. Thus, I had to look up what a heat gun can do, as my father never used them. Evidently, the heat gun can be used for stripping paint and varnish, loosening rusted nuts and bolts, thaw frozen pipes, and quick dry most anything. I would think it could also melt anything you need as well.

I like that it has two different temperatures. I am sure that different jobs call for more or less heat. If you live in a snowy climate, this can have all kinds of uses as well related to ice and snow. Being a prairie girl, I immediately thought that this gun would be great for thawing out your car’s keyhole when one of those brutal driving rains and then freezing create an ice buildup in your lock.

The heat gun has a built-in stand that you prop the gun up on so it can cool down faster. The heat gun is fairly lightweight and compact. It also looks to have a very comfortable grip for prolonged use. True to Black & Decker colours, the body is orange with black accents.

Save 79% TODAY ONLY! Jawbone Up Size Small Or Large Was $140 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Save 79% TODAY ONLY! Jawbone Up Size Small Or Large Was $140 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

The first generation Jawbone Up has been discontinued, and you can score a hot deal on one now. Previously selling for $139.99, you can now pick up a Jawbone Up for only $29.99. This item also qualifies for free super saver shipping.

Fitness bands have been hot recently. Now is a great time to try a model super cheap. The Jawbone Up has been one of the stronger contenders in the fitness band trend we have been seeing. This band can be worn all day and night to help track both fitness and rest patterns.  The wristband connects to a free mobile app that also allows you to track your calories, water and other nutritional information. We saw the price drop to $40 before, as Avigayil mentioned, but this is the steepest discount I have seen on this product. Be careful when you purchase as not all of the bands are at a price quite this low. Below I have listed the sizes and colours on sale for this low price.

  • Small Jawbone Up – Onyx
  • Large Jawbone Up- Onyx
  • Large Jawbone Up- Blue

Over on the website for Jawbone, I found a pdf that explains the sizing. You can use the guidelines to make sure you buy the correct size for your wrist.

Price Comparison

Best Buy Canada has the most competitive price, with these first generation Jawbones on sale for $39.95. Over at Chapters Indigo, the medium and large size Jawbones are available for $90. All small sizes are currently out of stock. Over at Staples Canada, the small and the large sizes are still available, and you will pay $99.97.

Reviews

Reviews seem mixed for this product. I am seeing some people who really love this band and others who had complaints about the software being a bit buggy. There is a new model out, the Up24, which is probably why this model is now being discontinued. Others rave about how great this tracker is and how helpful it is. Here is one of the shorter reviews on Best Buy Canada, though there are many long reviews available.

Save 79% TODAY ONLY! Jawbone Up Size Small Or Large Was $140 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

I would say if you are beginning a new fitness routine, this is a great device to pick up and try without much cost. Tracking on the go is one of the hardest parts of starting any new lifestyle change. This little device can help you to make the transition a little easier.  If you are intense with your fitness goals, this may not be the device for you. I would make the choice quickly, this price is only good today.

Amazon Canada: Despicable Me [Blu-ray] Was $31 | Now $11.75 & FS @ $25

Posted by on May 11, 2015 at 11:34 AM

Amazon Canada: Despicable Me [Blu ray] Was $31 | Now $11.75 & FS @ $25

Amazon Canada has discounted the original Despicable Me (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet) from $30.99 down to $11.75!

This is nearly the full kit and caboodle: the version includes Blu-ray, DVD, and the digital copy. I am not sure exactly what UltraViolet is so someone can pitch in their knowledge anytime.

This is the original Despicable Me – one of the best animated films to be released in the last decade. It also launched one of the most recognizable faces to come out of recent animated movies: the minion. Seriously, who does not love the minions? Whether you prefer one-eyed or two-eyed minions, minions that float or minions that wear costumes – this movie is priceless.

If you have never watched this movie, you MUST BUY IT. I love how this movie does what few movies ever do… distorts the boundaries between good and evil with orphans, unicorns, minions, and evil plots thrown into the mix.

As one reviewer on IMDB said:

It is incredibly rare to see a single dad portrayed in such a positive light. While Gru has an admittedly “bad” vocation, there are unbelievably sweet moments between him and the three children, probably aided by the juxtaposition of tiny girls to a large, “bad” guy.

My favourite scene is when Gru is trying to break into Vector’s lair to steal back the shrink ray. That is one seriously loaded fortress! The antics are somewhat childish but that is what makes them so much fun. You root for Gru even though he ends up borrowing a few orphans to unleash his nefarious plan. I now always say “light-bulb” in a Gru accent. I have Despicable Me to thank for that!

Despite the content being priceless, the movie does cost a few dollars. I price compared this exact set with other online retailers. I found the same Despicable Me combo for $19.96 @ Walmart Canada and $24.81 @ Staples Canada. The cheapest Blu-Ray Despicable Me @ Best Buy costs $22.99.

Despicable Me also did something that is very hard to do: it had a sequel nearly as good as the original. Some may argue it was slightly better too. “Lipstick Taser!” I highly recommend both movies but still consider the first my favourite.

Save 75%! Brother Professional Label Printer Was $120, Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 11, 2015 at 10:53 AM

Save 75%! Brother Professional Label Printer Was $120, Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Automate your label making with the Brother Professional Label printer. This fast labeler was $119.99 but is now only $29.99. This item also qualifies for free super saver shipping from Amazonc.ca.

A friend of mine runs a business selling puzzles out of their home. I had no idea that puzzles were such big business until I met them. They sell online everything from large puzzles for adults with a billion pieces to small wooden kid puzzles. They upgraded their home and now operate their business directly from there. Regularly they are standing at the post office with many packages to ship.

I bet a labeler like this would come in very handy for any small business owner. The Brother Professional Label printer is on sale for a great price today and prints up to 68 labels per minute. With a cutter inside, your shipping labels should roll off this machine quickly and efficiently.  The maximum tape width is 2.4 inches, but you can use tape that is thinner than that if you would prefer. I would love to have one of these printers around when we do our massive Christmas card list and use a skinnier label. This label printer is fully compatible with all of the Microsoft products, so you can easily create your labels in Word, Excel or Outlook. With a USB connect, this labeler will also print from a Mac.

Price Comparison

Check out some of the prices you will pay for the same labeler around the web.

This printer is in the 570 series, but I also noticed there is a second model that is part of the 700 series. Every 700 series model is currently priced at over $100.

Reviews

PC Magazine gives this label maker a great review, saying that overall it is fast and works with a variety of label sizes. At Amazon Canada, this printer has a strong four and a half star our of five stars rating with over 55 reviews. The reviews I have seen around the web also seem to be mostly positive. Here is one reviewer over at Best Buy Canada.

Great addition to my work space. It’s flexible and works like a charm. Printing is clear and adjustable like a word processor program.

Brother printers are also well known in the market. If I was going to pick up a label maker, I would be happy knowing it is a Brother product.

This machine is quite simply going to help you print of labels that are quicker and crystal clear. If you print multiple labels for business or home projects, this is a sweet buy to pick up today. Grab yours now while there is still some time on this weekly deal. Sometimes the Amazon Canada deals sell out long before the expiry.

Disney Studio Ghibli Blu-Ray Movies $20 & Under @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on May 10, 2015 at 10:25 AM

Disney Studio Ghibli Blu Ray Movies $20 & Under @ Amazon.ca

Studio Ghibli is one of my favourite movie studios and Disney is the one who brings them to us in North America. These movies are animated heartfelt children’s movies that really resonate with adults as well. Studio Ghibli rarely goes on sale (and the movies are expensive) so I am happy to bring you Amazon Canada’s Studio Ghibli sale with Blu-Ray movies under $20.

Amazon Canada’s prices are all better than Best Buy’s prices. Walmart Canada does match on a few of the Blu-Ray movies, but Amazon has a lower shipping minimum now so it is a better deal through them. Besides, Amazon Canada also has a better selection on sale.

I already own My Neighbor Totoro, The Secret World of Arrietty, and Ponyo. Each of these movies is on sale from $26.50 down to $19.96 (Ponyo is $20). My absolute favourite of the three has to be Totoro. I watch that movie any time I am feeling down, feeling sick, or just need a bit of comfort movie time. Next to my Pink Panther Collection and my Scooby-Doo collection, My Neighbor Totoro is probably my most watched disk. I also really like Ponyo, and alternate between the two. I am currently watching The Secret World of Arrietty, but I am not as attached to it as the other two.

Best Buy Sells each of these disks for $24.99 (does not have Ponyo) and Walmart, as mentioned above, does match the price for My Neighbor Totoro and Arrietty but is out of stock in Ponyo.

I have also seen Castle in the Sky, which was $26.50 and is now $19.96. I own a DVD collection of Studio Ghibli and this was one of the first movies I watched. I really enjoy this movie and would chalk it up as one of my favourites. It was made the year I was born!

There are several other titles that I have not seen before that are also on sale:

Nausicaa is sold out at Best Buy ($24.99) and costs $31.93 at Walmart! I have wanted to see this movie for a while.

You may notice a few other titles through the main link above that are not Studio Ghibli, but they also look like amazing animated movies. Two of them are on my wish list as well as, under $20; they are quite affordable Blu-Ray movies.

Shipping is free on $25 or more.

Bionaire LED Electric Fireplace Was $330 | Now $120 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on May 8, 2015 at 8:30 AM

Bionaire LED Electric Fireplace Was $330 | Now $120 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

This fireplace is perfect for chilly nights at the chalet, or to just plan ahead for fall. The Bionaire LED Electric Fireplace was $329.99 but now is $120.03 @ Amazon.ca. Free super saving shipping is included with this order.

As I was writing this post, the above fireplace was showing at $96 but it instantly jumped up to the $120 price. That was a shame… but the $120 price is still really excellent (just not quite as excellent as $96!).

I looked out the window this morning and we finally have baby leaves hanging from the trees. While I do not really want to think about a time when those leaves will be gone, I like to prepare for winter without paying retail prices. If your summer chalet is away in the woods, you might need a little fireplace like this to warm it up in the evening. We have friends who live at their chalet all summer near the lake. They stay through early fall, and this fireplace would be perfect for them as the nights start to chill off a bit in September.

Now is the time to jump in this Bionaire 40 inch LED Electric fireplace. This is a wall mount unit made of stainless steel that can also be installed in a base to sit on the floor. You have three different flame patterns to choose from to set the mood in your room and a host of safety features to keep it from overheating. This also has two different heat setting plus a fan only setting to help circulate the air out the front of the unit. Best of all, this flat unit packs away easily in storage if you want to conserve space in your living room. With a real fireplace hearth, there is never an option to pack it away in storage when you want more room for a party.

There are not many models of fireplaces advertised right now, but electric fireplaces are available to purchase. At Costco Canada, I found a smaller Bionaire electric fireplace for $199.99. Home Depot Canada has a similar Bionaire wall mount unit this is also smaller selling for $299.99.  Lowes Canada has a comparable wall mount unit that by Modern Homes for $299.99.

There are also some other electric fireplaces on sale today if this one is not your style. Check out the vintage looking AKDY 16″ Retro-Style Floor Freestanding Electric Stove that retails for $399.99 but is now only $109.99. I was not able to find this model sold elsewhere, but it sure does have slick style. You can pick it up in white, black or with a wood finish.  The AKDY Wall Mounted 36” Unit with Remote (select is also a good deal today. This unit is retailed priced at $899 but is now $159. This set has a little more realistic look with fake logs at the bottom of the unit, and you can control everything with a remote.

Think of this as an investment in your heating for next winter. A small unit can quickly warm a single room without driving your heating costs up. Pick your stylish fireplace now. I do not expect these units to stay at this price for long.

Amazon Canada: The Hobbit Trilogy (15-Disc) Blu-Ray 3D DVD Was $75 | Now $59 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 7, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Amazon Canada: The Hobbit Trilogy (15 Disc) Blu Ray 3D DVD Was $75 | Now $59 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada has discounted The Hobbit Trilogy (15-Disc) (Bilingual) [3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] from $74.99 (retail) down to $58.80 with free shipping.

While $74.99 was the original retail price, the box set was at $67.65. I have been tracking this set for a while, and the cheapest price it has ever been before this price drop was about $64.50. Now, I cannot price compare this box set with any other retailers as it is an Amazon exclusive. However, to give you an example on how good this deal is… Amazon.com (US) has a 13 disk The Hobbit Trilogy complete with 3D, Blu-Ray, Digital Edition, and DVD for $119.99 USD. Sweet petunias!

I also price compared with the regular Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital Copy box set (9 disks) just for kicks. Amazon Canada is selling the regular box set for $59.96, so the deluxe box set is now cheaper than the regular is! Best Buy Canada sells the regular set for $59.99 right now and Walmart has it for $59.96.

What you are getting in this box set:

  • 3D Blu-ray version
  • Blu-ray version
  • DVD version
  • Digital Copy
  • Special features

This set does not include the extended version. That version has not been released yet. A friend of mine and I are thinking it will take until right before Christmas for the extended box set version to be released in Canada. However, this is the better box set for your money right now and offers excellent value. I was not willing to pay full price for this box set when it first came out, thus I bought the regular edition instead. I do not even have a 3D TV so the extra disks would have been lost on me in the end.

I really enjoy The Hobbit. If you love the Lord of The Rings, then you should also enjoy The Hobbit immensely. I have seen a lot of complaints about Jackson not sticking to ‘the script’ – by that they mean deviating from Tolkien’s book. However, this is Jackson’s version of The Hobbit. Think of it like cos-playing your favourite character. It does not need to be 100% accurate to be enjoyable.

As the set costs over $25, it will ship to you for free.

Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD Set Was $130 | Now $66 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on May 6, 2015 at 7:41 AM

Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD Set Was $130 | Now $66 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Move and groove with the Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD set. This large boxed set was $129.99, but you can purchase it for only $66.04. This set also qualifies for completely free super saver shipping.

I have been curious about Zumba for a while now but never made the jump. Near my house, a Zumba fitness studio is pumping up the tunes at least five days a week. I see many tall and lean women (and a few guys also) frequenting that class. It would probably be in my best interest to join them. I think by the time I could escape my house and family regularly for the evening, all of the classes are long over.

Rather than paying for classes that I know I will end up missing half of, I could invest a little less money and pick up this fantastic looking DVD collection. This set includes seven DVDs full of workouts and music that will keep you dancing. I find I need to have a lot of variety in my workout to keep interested, and this set is packed full of options. The music and workouts vary between upbeat Latin, salsa, hip-hop and even belly dancing. Your set will also come with toning sticks, which are a nice set of light dumbbells to help you sculpt as you dance your stress away. I also like that there is an option to turn off the verbal instructions. If you get good at the steps, you can just lose yourself in the dancing.

You could pick up this Zumba set at Walmart.ca for $99.99. Canadian Tire also sells this DVD set in store for $99.99. Sears.ca carried this Zumba set for $99.99 also, but it is currently out of stock. Looks like Amazon is setting the bar for the best price on this set.

Looking at the reviews, many people are talking about this set. Over at Amazon Canada, 116 people have reviewed this set and it carries a hefty four out of five stars. After scanning the reviews, most people seem very happy with the workouts. Zumba has had a big following for a while and the reviews seem to reflect that trend. The main issue anyone notes that the packaging is a little on the flimsy side. I noticed that this particular set currently sits at a number fourteen slot in the exercise video category. In the number one exercise video slot is a similar Zumba set with less included DVDs.

Swimsuit season is coming up and I have been unmotivated to stick to my workout routine. I think this Zumba set might be just what I need to jumpstart a little fun into my workout. Grab yours set now Bargainmoosers! We have not seen much in the Zumba line go on sale in over a year according to a quick search of our site.

May the 4th Be With You Deals Today

May the 4th be with you today. You don’t have to be a fan of Star Wars to celebrate today, and you definitely don’t have to be a fan to get in on the deals that come along with today being May the 4th. I’ve compiled a sweet little list of some stores having Star Wars and May the 4th deals and you just might want to take a look.

Lets start with Chapters Indigo. They’ve got a few Star Wars items on sale, like this Star Wars Darth Vader roto bust bank. Cute for your dresser, plus functional for saving money, this item is on sale for $15, from $21.54. Amazon sells it too, for $21.48. There are also a couple of books on sale as well that you might want to take a look at.

Amazon is also cashing in on May the 4th day. They’ve got a ton of items on sale that look so fun and perfect for the Star Wars loving Dad on your Father’s Day list. One item of note may be this C3PO watch with minifigure that is regularly $27.99 and now $14.99. Truth be told, C3PO is my favourite character, so I would love this watch. My kids have Star Wars watches like these and they love them. They are also very durable (believe me, I know!).

ThinkGeek is your Star Wars store. They’ve got Star Wars items and this May the 4th, they’ve got a free collectible pin with your Star Wars orders over $20 and the promo code TENPACES. Also, until the end of today, they’ve also got all Star Wars items 20% off. Note that they ship from the U.S.

Shop for your Lovable Labels tonight and get 50% off sticker labels and slimline labels in honour of May the 4th. This deal ends at 5am tomorrow morning, so if you up late with a crying baby tonight, now you’ve got something to do.

M*A*S*H: The Complete Collection Was $200 | Now $67 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

M*A*S*H: The Complete Collection Was $200 | Now $67 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

I am a huge fan of the TV series M*A*S*H – in fact I own the Martinis and Medicine collection. Today only, Amazon Canada has discounted M*A*S*H: The Complete Collection from $199.98 down to $67.49 with free shipping.

The cheapest this collection has been before is $116.89 from my research. My price comparing with other stores did not go so well. I could not find this collection at other common DVD retailers like Best Buy or Walmart Canada. I did find the individual seasons priced at $10 each for seasons one through five and $14.97 each for seasons six through 10. Their collection is missing season 11 and the move. If you purchased these individually at Walmart Canada, then your entire cost would be $124.85. Even on eBay you are going to pay over $90 for the complete set (previous edition).

I am SO glad that they rereleased this set. I am just trying to convince myself that I can afford to buy it. The Martinis and Medicine box set is crap. The disks are great and the packaging had promise… but they used crappy glue on the box set so the slots for the DVDs are actually falling apart. This new box set was just released last year (in the fall) and shows great promise! I want it so badly.

The box aside, M*A*S*H is one of the greatest TV shows ever written. I am sure everyone has their favourites, but I really marvel at how the show went through such a major change in cast successfully. Trapper, Frank, and Henry were fabulous in the first few seasons… and I thought I would miss them terribly… but the replacements were just as good. I think Honeycut is refreshing and the arrogant Charles may just be my favourite character besides Hawkeye. I love how they play off each other!

I watch M*A*S*H quite often – it is one of my favourite shows. The episodes are just long enough for a good exercise session on my recumbent bike. I used to exercise to M*A*S*H all the time, but I became rather lazy for a while. Just two weeks ago I started again – at Season 1. I have made it to Season 7 before… and I look forward to making it all the way through season 11!

By the way, does anyone remember what M*A*S*H stands for?
