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?

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?

Posted by on January 19, 2015 at 12:28 PM

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.

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.

Philips EasyClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush Was $100 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Future Shop

Posted by on January 18, 2015 at 12:15 PM

Philips EasyClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush Was $100 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Future Shop

My New Years resolution was to drink a little less coffee. Well, my original resolution was to drink no coffee at all but that didn’t go over well. I have been noticing my teeth are getting a little whiter from drinking less caffeine, so I wanted to speed the process along a little. At Future Shop Canada right now, you can take 50% off the original price of the Philips EasyClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush and pay just $49.99.

At first I thought $50 was a little steep for an electric toothbrush. I looked into this product a little more and realized that this is actually the best price around for this Philips EasyClean Sonic Toothrbush. You can purchase the very same toothbrush for $84.99 Amazon.caEven BestBuy.ca has this toothbrush at a whopping price of $99.99. You could always price match at your local Best Buy Canada store and pay just $44.99 though since they give 10% off the price if you find it cheaper anywhere else.

This electric toothbrush has many features that you will find useful. The 2 minute timer will encourage you to brush your teeth longer, for better lasting results and proper care for your teeth. There is also a 30 second buzz so you know to switch sides. After comparing other models, I think you will find this one is definitely suitable. The brush heads for this Pro-Series model are also less expensive than the brush heads for the E-Series.

Here is one of the customer reviews for this Philips EasyClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush:

This Philips EasyClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush works extremely well. My teeth and mouth feel incredibly fresh after brushing.  I do find this toothbrush to be a bit tough on sensitive gums but it was expected as its far more thorough then brushing by hand. I am already seeing great results in the first week. Highly recommended.

Some complaints on this particular Phillips toothbrush include the battery lifespan and longevity of the brush heads. I don’t suspect that the battery lifespan will be a problem, I usually charge my electric toothbrush when it is not in use anyway. As for the brush heads, I am sure that will depend a lot on use and care. Do any of you Moosers have experience with this electric toothbrush?

This offer on the Philips EasyClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush is available online and in stores, although if you do shop online you will attain free shipping as well. This applies to purchases over $25 from FutureShop.ca unless they are large items. I usually find Future Shop’s shipping is quite quick as well. I always receive my purchase the same week.

Sennheiser Collapsible Noise-Cancelling Headphones Were $280 Now $98 & Free Shipping @ Amazon!

Posted by on January 18, 2015 at 9:59 AM

Sennheiser Collapsible Noise Cancelling Headphones Were $280 Now $98 & Free Shipping @ Amazon!

From deals on office chairs to bargains on headphones! This time, we’re heading over to Amazon.ca where they are selling a set of Sennheiser headphones at a superb price. The Sennheiser PXC 250 II Collapsible Noise-Cancelling Headphones have an original price tag of $279.99… that’s pretty high and I don’t think you or I would actually pay that. But, they’re on offer and you can grab these headphones for only $98 with free shipping right now.

The price of these particular headphones on Amazon does seem to fluctuate up and down quite a bit. I’ve seen them drop to $98 before but it wasn’t for long. They did drop to $95 back in April, but that was quite a while ago. $98 is a really sweet price point for this item.

When reading the spec on these Sennheiser headphones, the first bullet point made me smile:

Neodymium magnets and Duofol diaphragms for audiophile grade performance.

I had to go out of my way and google what these things meant! Well, Wikipedia helpfully tells me that:

A neodymium magnet is the most widely used type of rare-earth magnet, is a permanent magnet made from an alloy of neodymium, iron and boron to form the Nd2Fe14B tetragonal crystalline structure.

Whoop for science! Apparently it’s pretty common for these to be used in headphones and loudspeakers, as well as a wealth of other appliances, such as your power steering! But I know you are curious, what about the Duofol diaphragms?

DuoFol diaphragm provides a wide sound stage with ultra-fast response and rest times.

Now, aren’t we more enlightened?

Regardless of the technology, these sound like a great price on a super quality set of headphones from Sennheiser.

When I first saw the image of these Sennheiser headphones, I thought they looked very flimsy. I think that’s probably not true though – they’re compact because they are collapsible. These headphones would be absolutely ideal for travelling and heading through airports, etc. Not to mention the noise-cancelling effect when travelling through a busy airport!

Amazon.ca: Space: Above and Beyond – The Complete Series Only $7

Posted by on January 15, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Amazon.ca: Space: Above and Beyond   The Complete Series Only $7

Hearken back to the mid-80s for this wonderful little sci-fi series called Space: Above and Beyond. The series was short-lived (23 episodes), but it is a real treasure for anyone who used to watch it on TV or who enjoys older sci-fi. Space: Above and Beyond – The Complete Series is now on sale at Amazon.ca from $49.98 retail down to $6.99.

For $7, you are receiving a five-disk set with 23 episodes (including part 1 and part 2 of the pilot for technically 24 episodes in total). Each episode was approximately 45 minutes long. That is a lot of entertainment for only a few dollars.

I have only seen this price once before, and I thought it was such a niche product that it was not worth blogging. Then in conversation to a friend of mine, I mentioned it and he nearly went ballistic. Evidently, he had watched the series when he was younger and LOVED it. It is incredible hard to find (no kidding!) and could not believe I had found a copy and the price just blew his mind. He asked me to buy him a copy. Then, he phoned me back asking me to purchase a second copy because he had mentioned it to a friend of his whom also flipped his top over the set.

Therefore, suddenly I found myself purchasing two copies of a TV series I had never seen that I thought no one would know about. Funky stuff. The deal ended very soon after that, but it is back so I just have to blog it. As I do not know much about the series, here is the description from Amazon:

In this cult fan favorite, it’s the year 2063. After 150 years of deep space exploration, the people of Earth feel certain they are alone in the universe. Then word comes that two Earth outposts light-years away from home have been brutally attacked by an advanced alien civilization. Now the new young recruits of the United States Marine Corps Space Aviator Calvary are heading for the front lines of space in the toughest battle the world has even faced.

My friend was right, the series is impossible to find elsewhere. I searched Best Buy, Future Shop, HMV, and Walmart. None of the usual places had any copies. I did find the complete collection of Space: Above and Beyond at Walmart.com on sale for $28.25. That was really the only other trace of this set I could find.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. If you have a Prime membership, this will ship for free.

Amazon Canada: M&M’s 24-Count Box Was $70 | Now $20 (Expired)

Posted by on January 15, 2015 at 9:35 AM

Amazon Canada: M&Ms 24 Count Box Was $70 | Now $20 (Expired)

Christmas is over and all the chocolate is gone. For some of us, that’s a good thing, for others, we need the chocolate! Amazon has a sweet deal on a 24-count box of M&Ms candies. You’ll get 24 bags of the 120g bag for only $20.71, with a regular price of $69.36. This might be good for loot bags, parties, fundraisers or if you are so inclined, so save for Halloween (check the expiry).

There really is so much you can do with this deal. Don’t just think about it like you’ll eat 24 bags of M&Ms. If you have any sort of event coming up where candy might be a nice gift, like a shower or even for your wedding, this is a great deal. I’m imagining something like the cute wedding decorations here at Tropical Wedding Decor where they were packaged up nicely and given as a wedding favour. Imagine a vase filled with M&Ms as a centrepiece that guests could pick at while waiting for dinner.

I’ve also been to birthday parties where they had a candy buffet and that was always a huge hit with kids (and the parents). I personally would just give these out in the loot bags for my next son’s birthday party.

Price comparing, Walmart sells the 120g bag in-store for $2.58 a bag. You are getting these for $0.86 a bag, which is a significant savings.

Amazon offers free shipping on orders over $25, so you might want to see what other candy deals you can get.

If you like Twizzlers, get the 36-count of Twizzlers pull-n-peel cherry for only $3.27, with a regular price of $11.14. You could also get the 50 count fun size Mars bars, which was $10.99 and now only $4.71. I know my husband would love this for Valentine’s Day! Mars is his favourite and he likes having little chocolate bars in his drawers in the office.

If Snickers is more your style, you can get a 12-count of the 130g bag of Snickers Bites, with a regular price of $34.68 for only $17.45.

Again, I’m thinking candy buffet… mmmm…

Take 50% off Chuggington StackTrack Stone Quarry Playset Only $38 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 14, 2015 at 5:14 PM

Take 50% off Chuggington StackTrack Stone Quarry Playset Only $38 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Wouldn’t you like to watch your little boy whiz and whirl his trains through his brand new Chuggington track set? You can also rest assured that your wallet won’t be feeling any pain. While supplies last, you can shop at Amazon Canada and take 50% off the original price of the Chuggington StackTrack Stone Quarry Playset. This discount will leave you paying just $37.47 instead of $75.

Honestly, my son is obsessed with Thomas The Train, but I am sure he would settle for a train set like this Chuggington StackTrack Stone Quarry Playset. For just $37.47 you will get the special deco High Performance Brewster and 2 Cargo cars, 2 cargo loading stations, 2 cargo pieces, a drop bin, stone crash gates and tracks. This set is best suited for children ages 3 and up, but my two year old has no difficulties with playing with these sets.

Your child can couple up Brewster to his two cargo cars so that he can go pick up his rock cargo at the top of the hill. There are spirals, entry gates and more to occupy your little one along the journey. After collecting his second rock cargo, your child can push Brewster down the steep hill and through the crash gates to the drop off bin. There are four different layouts so you and your little one will never get bored of redesigning the track and playing allover again.

Another great feature about the Chuggington StackTrack playsets is that you can stack this set with any other StackTrack set – they are all compatible! You can make your playsets wider, taller and more action packed than ever before. The tracks and risers are now even easier to connect than before.

I tried to price compare this set with other Canadian retailers, and to my surprise this playset is actually difficult to find in Canada. To give you a rough idea of the discounts you will receive, this Chuggington Stone Quarry StackTrack Set is on sale from $60 down to $50 @ ToysRUs.com. Here is one of the reviews on this Chuggington StackTrack set:

Bought this set for my two year old son who loves Chuggington. Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the purchase. The design isn’t too bad. My only complaints are that the two brown railed decline pieces didn’t allow the train to pass through them smoothly. I did to pull them apart (slightly) so the train didn’t get hung up. The other complaint I have is that the gate pieces that clip to the track can be rather difficult to pull off when you change the layout.

Another bonus you will receive when shop at Amazon.ca is free shipping. You can attain free standard shipping on all orders from Amazon Canada that exceed $25 after discounts. That means that this purchase will automatically be eligible for free shipping.

Amazon.ca: Porcelain 20-Piece Place Setting Was $100 | Now $40 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 13, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Amazon.ca: Porcelain 20 Piece Place Setting Was $100 | Now $40 (EXPIRED)

This deal is drawing a lot of attention on the forums, so I thought it blog worthy my dear Moosers. The Melange Nouveau Classic Porcelain 20-Piece Place Setting in platinum (serving for four) is on sale from $100.09 down to $39.77.

While the set is available in other colours, only the platinum is on sale for this price. Now, this is a beautiful four serving set with 20 pieces. The set includes:

  • Four 10.8 inch dinner plates
  • Four 8.5 inch salad plates
  • Four 8.75 inch soup bowls
  • Four 10 oz. cups
  • Four cup saucers

This set is safe to use for your daily dinning set if you want. It is microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The rounded edges almost in a soft petal pattern are designed to be chip resistant. While porcelain sounds fragile, it is baked at very high degrees to make these dishes stronger than stoneware or earthenware dishes.

There are no reviews of these dishes on Amazon.ca, but there are a few on Amazon.com. One reviewer said:

Great everyday dishes. Came packed great. No scratches. Look great with mixing other dishes as well. Dishwasher safe. I’ve used them everyday since I purchased them and they look beautiful. Definitely a great choice and buy for everyday use.

A couple reviewers reported minor pocking or runs in the glaze while others reported perfect glaze and no pock marking. Of course, you can always return any defective items you receive if you should receive a flawed set.

Overall, I think this is a lovely set of porcelain dishes and a great price. I also think that a 20-piece set is perfect for smaller families. When you have too many dishes, you never seem to wash any of them until you run out. In our house, that means eight bowls and eight plates (three times over for the different sizes), and then all the silverware is just sitting on the counter waiting to be washed. Yuk. I really like smaller sets myself if there are four or less people in the house.

This set of dishes will ship for free as your order will be over $25. Thank you to FeliciaC for posting this deal on the forums.

67% Off Monster DNA Earphones – Was $132 | Now $44 @ Amazon Canada (+ Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 12, 2015 at 9:40 PM

67% Off Monster DNA Earphones   Was $132 | Now $44 @ Amazon Canada (+ Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

Originally, I was going to blog about a deal on the Monster DNA in-ear headphones at Chapters Indigo as they’re on sale for $60 (reg. $120) but then I spotted these exact same headphones for an even lower price tag of just $43.65 at Amazon! Plus, shipping is free.

Everywhere, these earphones are referred to as both “headphones” and “earphones” but this is actually quite misleading as they don’t go over the head and are indeed just earphones!

Here’s a review:

Very very nice sound and great noise cancelling; used the standard fit ear plugs for 60 minutes of listening on iPhone and iPod. Quite satisfied so far with this choice. Just got it for 42 CAD and this price point it is a great value for money deal.

You can read about it on Amazon’s site but interestingly enough, the first part of that review included a line about the packaging and it being a nice experience. Personally, I buy things for the products themselves and tend to discard the package unless I think that I may have a chance at re-selling it a year or two later but all in all, the packaging shouldn’t be a reason not to get these earphones. In any case, according to the reviewer, the packaging is very much in-line with Apple’s way of wrapping their products, so you can expect a nice box with cleanly wrapped earphones.

This bring me to my next point, these earphones feature Apple ControlTalk, which should provide you with calls that are crystal clear. Since they feature an Apple control, this also means that these earphones will be iPhone friendly. No worries if you have an Android device as these will work with those devices as well.

Another major perk is that the wire is tangle free. I can not even begin to tell you how many times I have pulled out my earphones only to shove them back in my purse in frustration as I waited for the subway.

At Best Buy, these same earphones are actually priced as high as $99.99! Here’s a review I find on their site:

I just got them for the best price ever and white ones and the sound quality awesome mid nice high crisp lows deep and base is there definitely buy if looking for very very good quality in-ear headphones

Amazon Canada: Men’s Icebreaker Leggings Were $70 | Now $42

Amazon Canada: Mens Icebreaker Leggings Were $70 | Now $42

In the midst of a bitter cold spell, I bet you are wishing you had some warmer wear in your wardrobe. Amazon’s got some great deals on Icebreaker clothing for men. I found these men’s Everyday leggings with fly on sale for only $41.70, with a regular price of $69.99.

While these leggings are only $41.70, that is for the large size only. The extra large is actually cheaper, now only $37.28, but the rest of the sizes are regular price. This is also for the black only as the cargo is sold out.

These leggings are great as a base layer for anything you are going to do outside – from extreme sports to mundane shoveling of snow. They will keep you warm with their merino wool fabric. Because they are leggings and should have a close fit, the reviewers recommend that you use the size chart to choose your size. Every other store I checked had these leggings on for full price, which is almost $30 more than Amazon has them for.

If you’re disappointed that you aren’t going to fit into a large, don’t be, as Amazon has some other Icebreaker deals you can fit into.

The Icebreaker Aura hat in jet heather is one size, so it will fit any man. With a regular price of $44.99, it is now only $27.12. I shopped around and again, it is regular price everywhere else. The burgundy is also available, with a final price of $28.26 and only three left in stock.

Get the matching Icebreaker Quantum gloves in black with a regular price of $39.99 and now only $24.23. Only the medium is this price. You can also text in these super warm gloves, which is very handy.

When you are out in the cold, you want to keep every part of you warm. So the Icebreaker men’s anatomica briefs could be super handy. The large is again the best deal and you’ll pay only $23.87, with a regular price of $44.79. If you are a medium, your price is $34.99 and x-large is $34.84. Small and xx-large are sold out.

You’ll also get free shipping once you spend $25 or more, so most of these orders will also ship for free.

Amazon.ca: Wii U Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Starter Pack Now $47.99

Amazon.ca: Wii U Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Starter Pack Now $47.99

Amazon Canada has discounted all the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Packs. The best deal is on the Wii U as it is on sale from $74.99, down to $47.99.  This is the lowest price drop that we have seen on this console edition of the Disney Marvel Starter Packs.

As I mentioned, all the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Packs for any console are now under $50 at Amazon Canada. Here is they cost depending on your console:

  • Nintendo Wii U – $47.99
  • PS3 – $49.99
  • PS4 – $49.99
  • Xbox 360 – $49.99
  • Xbox One – $47.99

I am concentrating on the Wii U version because it has not been this low before. We saw the Xbox One version drop as low as $39.99 here, but the Sony Playstation versions, and the Wii U version, have held on tight to around $65 or so for the most part. As I own a PS3, the pack for it at only $49.99 looks rather tempting. I know that anyone with the new PS4 console will appreciate the price drop so they can save money on these awesome figures and the game that goes with them.

Now, many other companies also have the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel starter sets on sale right now, but Amazon ends up having the best price by a few dollars on the Wii U set:

  • $49.99 @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada
  • $64.97 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $69.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $74.96 @ Walmart Canada

Prices vary widely, and only the twin electronic stores Best Buy and Future Shop come close. However, you still save an extra couple of dollars purchasing this set through Amazon Canada.

Now, the set comes with The Avengers Play Set, Toy Box Game Discs, and the three figures of Iron Man, Black Widow, and Thor. I would have preferred a Loki character myself, but I guess he does not qualify as a super hero. I think they need to come out with a super villains edition! The game is a bit simplistic according to some adults, but a blast for kids:

My boys can’t get enough of this game…they love superheroes and Infinity 2.0 is way better structured than the first one…helping guide them to missions. Since they are only 4 and 7 yrs old the concept of spending skill points needed to be explained but all in all a great game.

If you own a Wii U, this is the best deal we have seen on this set yet. Receive free shipping as the set costs over $25.

Amazon.ca: Dirt Devil Scorpion HV 7A Vacuum Only $29

Posted by on January 9, 2015 at 2:02 PM

Amazon.ca: Dirt Devil Scorpion HV 7A Vacuum Only $29

Purchase the hand held Dirt Devil Scorpion Quick Flip HV 7A Vacuum on sale from $44.79 down to $28.63 at amazon Canada. As this convenient little vacuum cleaner costs over $25, the unit will also ship for free to your home.

In price comparing this unit I did find some decent prices. However, Amazon Canada’s price was the best compared to these competitors:

  • $34.99 @ Home Depot Canada (in store)
  • $39.99 @ London Drugs Canada
  • $48.30 @ Hookbag Canada

This is a bagless, corded, straight suction hand vacuum cleaner. The bagless design saves on waste and allows you to deposit dirt right into the trash. The 16 foot cord is excellent for extending your reach without having to switch outlets all the time. The vacuum also has this cool quick-flip crevice tool. A plastic channel flips out at the end of your vacuum cleaner to channel suction. It lets you get into tight corners and edges without losing suction.

The seven AMP motor will power through most small messes and it flicks on and off at the switch of a button on the handle. The vacuum also comes with a few extra accessories (besides the quick flip tool). These bonus accessories are a dusting brush, hose, shoulder strap, and an extension.

The reviews are good for this unit as well. Out of 20 reviews on Amazon.ca, the Scorpion Dirt Devil is averaging 4.5/5 stars. One reviewer said:

I have a Dyson cordless and I use this instead because it has greater suction! Believe it. You don’t always get what you pay for but in this case the little Dirt Devil outperforms the mighty D. Easy to empty and you can carry the cup to the garbage to empty instead of having to cart the whole unit. Highly recommend.

I find that a bit of a hard pill to swallow as I am a Dyson fan, but they are quite right. Sometimes you buy into a brand name because you liked something they made previously when something cheaper and not as popular will do the job as well – if not better. You can often save a lot of money by trying to over-ride your brand bias to try something different.

For $29, I think this is an excellent purchase. It will save fishing out the large vacuum cleaner (if you have one) or save purchasing a large one if you only have small bits of carpet.
