Amazon Canada: Six Feet Under: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $175 Now $59 **BUMP**

Amazon Canada: Six Feet Under: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $175 Now $59 **BUMP**

**Good morning again Moosers. We are bumping this one as it is a cult favourite and now another $6 cheaper. Don’t miss out!**

Good morning, my fellow Bargainmoosers! Today on Amazon, you can get a really sweet bargain on Six Feet Under: The Complete Series on DVD. This DVD set normally sells for $174.99, but you can now purchase this for just $64.99! What’s also great is that you’ll also qualify for free shipping! Now that’s a nice incentive! It’s also a fantastic series that I highly recommend.

This set is something that you should seriously consider purchasing. Six Feet Under: The Complete Series on DVD contains all 5 seasons of this HBO classic, and it’s one heck of a show! I didn’t know what to expect when I first checked out this series… it revolves around a family that works in a funeral home, and the struggles, triumphs, and tragedies that they encounter while trying to pick up the pieces after the patriarch of the family passes away.

This is a deep show that has some dark comedy, riveting storylines, and plenty of familiar faces (Michael C. Hall, who later played Dexter, is in this series, and that’s how I started to watch 6 Feet Under). My girlfriend and I really enjoyed watching this series, and the series finale was extremely well done (unlike the controversial ending to The Sopranos).

If you wanted to buy Six Feet Under: The Complete Series on DVD at Best Buy, it would cost you $77.99 (it’s also currently sold out). Listed below is a brief review of this set from a satisfied Amazon customer:

I laughed and cried my way through this entire series. Watching it was like falling in love. The characters were so incredibly compelling that I felt I was part of their lives. This is a unique drama. Highly recommended.

This set was previously $63 on Amazon back in June (check out Eva’s post here), but that deal didn’t last very long, so here’s a second chance to save on this series! Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: My Little Snugabunny Bouncer Was $99 | Now $50 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

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

Amazon Canada: My Little Snugabunny Bouncer Was $99 | Now $50 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada has discounted the Fisher-Price Deluxe Bouncer, My Little Snugabunny (B0042D69XS) from $99 down to $50 with free shipping.

This deluxe bouncer offers your baby everything they need for the ultimate comfort. The interior is covered in soft fabric that will protect your baby’s sensitive skin. The bunny-themed cushion lies under your baby from head to toe. That body insert can be removed as your baby grows to afford more room. It is also washable: just strip the cushion off the base and throw it in the washing machine. This is ideal for creating a clean and safe environment for your child.

The deluxe bouncer plays eight songs and nature sounds while emitting calming vibrations throughout the bouncer. Let the bouncer sing your baby off to sleep with music. I never was great at sleeping with music, but nature sounds would often help me drift off to sleep. What a lovely little accessory for your young one.

The snugabunny bouncer will accommodate newborns and babies up to 25 pounds. Children grow fast, so this bouncer will help you out during the first few months of parenthood. Once your child has outgrown the bouncer, you have several options. Save the bouncer for your next child, pass it on to a friend, or resell it freshly washed and waiting for a new mother.

One reviewer at Walmart Canada said:

Soft and comfortable! Great sound and vibration features. Love that it has grips on the stand so it doesn’t slide around like others I have had.

I price compared this little bouncer with other online retailers. Walmart Canada is offering the Snugabunny Bouncer for the same price ($50), but their stock is already listed as ‘limited’. I wanted you to have the best chance of picking up this deal, thus I blogged it from Amazon. However, if Amazon sells out, then you can purchase from Walmart instead. At other retailers, the Snugabunny bouncer is substantially more. ToysRUs Canada sells the bouncer for $89.99 and Sears Canada sells the bouncer for $99.99.

While this deal is at two stores, I think that this is a deal worth bringing to your attention as the bouncer is nearly 50% off retail price. You can see other stores (Sears, ToysRUs) still selling the bouncer for the much higher price.

Amazon.ca Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre-Order Video Games!

Posted by on June 14, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Amazon.ca Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre Order Video Games!

It’s not very often that Amazon.ca releases generic promo codes which can be used on a selection of items on their site. That’s why when I found this deal, I was quite excited to see it. There are two new promo codes which can be used for a discount if you are pre-ordering video games there. Pre-order two video games and get a 20% discount, or pre-order three or more games and get a 30% discount on your order!

Click here to use the Amazon.ca promo codes online now

  • Promo code: E3SAVE20
  • Discount: 20% off 2 pre-order video games
  • Promo code: E3SAVE30
  • Discount: 30% off 3 or more pre-order video games
  • Expires: 18th June 2015

There are a couple of terms and conditions which you might want to take note of:

  • You can only buy two copies of any one game.
  • Excludes: Disney Infinity, Limited, Gold or Collector’s editions, LEGO Dimensions, Skylanders, consoles, accessories.

What’s even sweeter about this deal is the Amazon pre-order price guarantee. It simply states:

Our Pre-order Price Guarantee covers one or more item(s) in this order. If the Amazon.ca price decreases between the time you place your order and the end of the day of the release date, you’ll receive the lowest price.

This means that if there’s a game you are interested in buying, you don’t have to worry about any price fluctuations on Amazon. If the video game drops in price on its release date, you will only pay the lower price for your purchase. And as most of these games are brand new, they’re all going to be over the $25 free shipping minimum threshold too.

Some people follow certain video games and are huge fans, and want to have the brand new edition on its release date to start playing right away. I’m not like that, but I’ve known a few gamers who are. There are a couple of popular series in here which people will be interested in. Some examples of the upcoming releases:

The release dates on these vary, with many not actually being released until quarter 4, just in time for Christmas. If you or someone in your family MUST have select titles on release day, this is the perfect time to buy.

Farscape: The Complete Series (15th Anniversary Edition DVD) was $130 now $43 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on June 13, 2015 at 12:44 PM

Farscape: The Complete Series (15th Anniversary Edition DVD) was $130 now $43 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Those of you Moosers who have been reading this blog for a few years will know that I am a bit of a sci-fi nerd. There are a few series out there which are top of my favourite lists, with such obvious shows as Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. One of the lesser known shows which is also at the top of my list is Farscape. And just now, there’s a really fantastic price on the 15th anniversary DVD boxset on Amazon.ca. It was originally priced at $129.95, but you can grab it for only $42.99 right now. That’s with Amazon’s free shipping, of course.

The Farscape series consisted of four seasons of sci-fi goodness, and that’s what you will get in the above boxset. However, if you really want to round out your collection, you’ll want to pick up the Peacekeeper Wars, which was an additional mini-movie to end off the whole show. It’s not included in the above, you’ll need it if you like Farscape!

I have all these DVDs; I think I’ve watched the whole show right through, two times. It’s really a fantastic piece of entertainment. Over on IMDB, the voters give Farscape a rating of 8.4/10, from 24k users. This an extremely high rating and just goes to show you that the show is very highly thought-of.

If you look at the image above, you can see that there are some pretty far-out looking characters in Farscape. But don’t let that put you off – the make-up and character effects are excellent, but they’re secondary to the excellent writing in the show.

Anyone buying it?

P.S. Prefer blu-ray? It’s only $4 more here.

RAVPower 10400mAh Power Bank Was $33 | Now $26 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 11, 2015 at 6:30 PM

RAVPower 10400mAh Power Bank Was $33 | Now $26 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Lately there have been a myriad of great external battery deals. Today’s deal is no different. The RAVPower Element 10400mAh External Battery Pack is currently discounted from $32.99 to $25.99 at Amazon Canada. Additionally, this power bank comes with free shipping.

This is the deal you want if you missed out on the Anker power bank that I mentioned yesterday. While this power bank does not bare the famous Anker name, RavPower is still a solid name in electronics. Besides, 167 customer reviews with an average rating of 4.6/5 just cannot be wrong. This power bank is popular and it is on sale.

RAVPower 10400mAh Power Bank Was $33 | Now $26 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Now, people argue about the storage capacity. Most batteries will not have the full mAh of storage capacity available but they should have most of it. Some reviewers question whether you are truly getting 10400mAh of power but they have yet to do any hard and fast tests. Despite the grumblings about capacity, the battery is actually pretty well reviewed. One reviewer on Newegg said:

comes with 2 cords and bag and you dont have to worry about losing any bits just to charge it. I get 4 charges for my Nexus 5 out of it. Plug it in and it automatically starts charging.

This power bank features two USb outputs: one outputs 2.1A and the other outputs 1A for a combined output of 3.1A. I highly recommend figuring out which port is which before you start charging your devices. It took me months to figure out that the ports on my external battery were different speeds. After that, I always charged on the 2.1A side.

The device features iSmart technology, which maximizes compatibility with Android, Apple, and other devices. It allows charging speeds up to 3.1A. Do note that this product cannot charge Asus tablets. The RavPower bank has the standard four LED indicator lights to let you know when it is time to recharge your battery.

I price compared not only against this battery but against other 10400 size batteries. This same battery costs $34.99 + $5.99 shipping at Newegg Canada. I found an ADATA external battery at NCIX.com (same size: 10400mAh) for $29.99. That is about the closest I could find in price.

If you need to keep your purchases a little more budget friendly, then pick up this external battery for under $30.

Amazon Canada: Anker 13000mAh Portable Battery Only $32 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 10, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Anker 13000mAh Portable Battery Only $32 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Hold on to your hats my darlings because the beloved Anker 13000mAh Portable Battery has dropped in price from $35.99 down to $31.99. I am not sure if this is the new price or just a sale price, but it is a great price!

I rave about this battery all the time. There are two of these batteries in my household: one previous edition model and one latest edition model. The first gift I tend to give my friends is one of these external batteries, especially after hearing things like “my cell phone is about to die” or “I am down to 10% so I will have to stop texting you now.” Seriously, get yourself a portable battery and forget about the limitations of your current battery.

I am not the only one who loves this battery. Fellow blogger Margarita says:

Back around Christmastime, Avigayil recommended the Anker battery to me when I asked her for advice on a good portable battery to get my hubby as a gift. I had never used one before and had zero knowledge on these nifty things but since getting it for him, I have bought one for myself and even a friend! Both hubby and I have an iPhone and it’s super handy to be able to recharge our phones on the go instead of being stuck waiting for them to hit 100% when plugged into the wall. Plus, when you look at the price and power ratio of the Anker portable battery in comparison to others, there is no other like it!

This external battery is fully loaded. With 13000mAh power stored up, you can recharge your cell phone multiple times and a tablet at least once. There are two USB connections and the standard four indicator lights to let you know when you need to recharge your battery. The Anker battery comes with one cable, which you can use both to charge the power bank and to connect your Android device to the battery for charging.

As a bonus feature, the power bank has a light than is triggered by pressing down and holding the side button. This light is handy if you are trying to plug in your phones at night as the light is on the side of the ports. Hold down the same button to turn the light off again.

This battery has a very slim profile and it comes with a small mesh travel bag so you can keep the cord and the battery together. The only negative i can think of is the lack of passive charging. That means, you cannot charge your phone on this battery while this batter is being charged. No matter, because this battery is wicked.

Receive free shipping on your battery. Also, these batteries appear to be tax-free or have the tax built into the cost.

Aukey 9000mAh Power Bank Was $40 | Now $17 (FS @ $25) @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 9, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Aukey 9000mAh Power Bank Was $40 | Now $17 (FS @ $25) @ Amazon.ca

The Aukey 9000mAh Portable External Battery Charger is on sale from $39.99 down to $16.99. The item is sold from A-TEK but fulfilled through Amazon, thus you can receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Now there are several big differences between this charger and one like the ADATA I posted about a couple days ago. First of all, this is a fairly large power bank. it stores 9000mAh of power (over twice the size of the ADATA). This also means it is ‘less portable’. The larger volume requires a larger sized device. I still find this size portable enough to stick in your purse, but not in a pocket.

Second, the ADATA had one port with 2.1A output. The Aukey has two ports: one is 1A and the other is 1.3A for a combined max output of 2.3A. Thus, the Aukey is a larger external battery with a slower output per decide. Yet, the Aukey is better for charging two devices at one time and has the larger volume.

This is still an amazing price. The other cheapest 9000mAh power bank I could find on Amazon was the MoKo [Fit-Charge] 9000mAh Portable External Battery for $30.99. There are several others in the $30 to $40 range on Amazon Canada. Walmart has a Digiwave DCP1090B Power Bank (9000 mAh) for 47.98: this is the cheapest 9000mAh battery I could find on Walmart. Other websites had power banks of similar stats for around the same price.

The Aukey Amzdeal PURE-W3 9000mAh External Battery Pack will charge msot devices including Apple and Samsung products. This external battery features smart charing: just plug in your device and it will automatically start charging. When your phone or tablet is full, the PURE power bank will automatically stop charging.

Like most battery chargers, this unit comes with four LED indicator lights that represent how much juice you have left in the pack. These let you know when you need to recharge the battery. The power bank should only require approximately five hours to fully recharge.

I have no experience with the Aukey brand, so I cannot make any educated recommendations. However, at this price I would be willing to experiment. You will not find this size of battery for this price anywhere else.

Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1-3 Blu-Ray Box Set + FREE T-Shirt – Now $40 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!) *BUMP!*

Posted by on June 9, 2015 at 1:00 AM

Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1 3 Blu Ray Box Set + FREE T Shirt   Now $40 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!) *BUMP!*

UPDATE: I wrote about this deal a couple of weeks ago but it’s now even cheaper! Right now, you can get The Walking Dead Seasons 1-3 for just $39.99, which is $6 less than what it was before and is essentially a 75% discount from its original price. Get it while you can!

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 $40 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!) *BUMP!*

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.

Star Trek: The Complete Original Series [Blu-ray] Only $60 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 8, 2015 at 5:42 PM

Star Trek: The Complete Original Series [Blu ray] Only $60 @ Amazon.ca

Oh my, do I have a deal for you. Amazon Canada has discounted Star Trek: The Complete Original Series [Blu-ray] from $179.98 to only $59.99. As your order costs over $25, it will also ship for free.

This price is MIND BLOWING! When the DVD set dropped down to $61.99 back in December, it sold out quickly. Unfortunately, not all those who placed an order received their order. I was one of those who ordered the original series as a gift for a friend. However, months later my order got cancelled.

This time, I can pick up the Blu-ray copy for less than the DVD set cost a few months ago. This set includes all three seasons of the show with over 4000 minutes run time. This is a phenomenal geek find. I have to say, it is a bit lost on me as this was well before my time. I grew up on Voyager, not on the original Star Trek. Yet, I grew up knowing of Captain Kirk and of Mr. Spock. Of course, Mr. Spock and his logical facade was always my favourite.

It is freaky how expensive this set costs elsewhere. Staples Canada has the same exact box set priced at $481.31 (out of stock). Walmart Canada sells the same series for $305.93. I have found individual seasons around $50 or more, but I have never seen all three seasons together or even separate for a combined total of $60.

Currently, there is a two to five week wait on this item shipping. I would purchase it even with that wait time as you may never see this price again. I really hope Amazon Canada fulfills all the orders this time instead of cancelling some. To Amazon’s credit, that was the first time I have ever had an order cancelled by the online retail giant.

What are your favourite Star Trek memories? Drop a comment below and tell us if you already own the series or are purchasing it. Also, let us know who your favourite character was from Star Trek. With the death of Leonard Nemoy earlier this year, there are fewer and fewer surviving cast members from the bridge.

Amazon Canada: Buy 3+ DVD & Blu-Ray Boxsets & Get Another $8 Off

Posted by on June 8, 2015 at 9:21 AM

Amazon Canada: Buy 3+ DVD & Blu Ray Boxsets & Get Another $8 Off

While summer doesn’t usually mean movie marathons, now might be a good time to stock up on DVDs and Blu-Rays to have on hand for rainy days at the cottage or those long road trips. Amazon always has great deals on boxsets already, but if you buy three or more, you’ll be rewarded with an extra $8 off at checkout on select boxsets.

There are some pretty cool sets available for purchase with this deal. There is something for everyone – men, women and kids – but you might want to get Dad his favourite boxset as a Father’s Day gift. I know my husband always appreciates cool movies and that would be the perfect gift for him.

While I’m no longer a fan of scary movies, I still can’t get that scene out of my head where Sigourney Weaver gives birth to that alien. A number 1 seller at Amazon, the Alien Quadriology is perfect for a long day of getting freaked out. Regularly $49.99, it is on sale for $19.97. While that price is what it sells for at Walmart and Best Buy, if you decide to buy three or two other sets, you’ll get that extra $8 off.

Another epic set would be the Rocky Heavyweight collection, which features Rocky 1 through 5 plus some bonus discs. Regularly $69.99, it is on sale for $18.49. This time, Amazon’s sale price beats out the competitors, with Walmart selling it for $30.

Now, this boxset is one I can definitely get behind. With Michael Douglas starring in Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile, this set is a must watch! I loved these movies as a kid and I bet I would still love them now. This set would definitely do well to replace those old VHS tapes you have around with these movies on them. Regularly $21.99, Amazon sells it for $8.25.

If you bought all three boxsets, you’d pretty much get that last set free. You’d also get free shipping on top, as you’ll definitely be spending over $25. There are tons of other boxsets to choose from though, so don’t feel confined to my choices. You have to go right to the end of checkout to see your discount, it won’t show up in the cart.

Amazon Canada: The Complete Beverly Hills 90210 Only $110 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Amazon Canada: The Complete Beverly Hills 90210 Only $110 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Today’s one-day deal on Amazon Canada is Beverly Hills 90210: The Complete Series. While Amazon Canada has the original price at $389.99, the going rate is more in the mid-$200 range. However, today you can pick up the series for only $109.99 with free shipping.

Walmart Canada sells the exact same collection for $257.97. I also compared individual seasons to the price of the box set: there is not even a contest. Individual seasons start around $20 and go up to $65 depending upon the season (at Amazon). Even at Walmart, individual seasons start at $15 and go up to $50 each. Currently, the same box set costs $224.60 USD at Amazon.com. Walmart.com also sells this box set for $224.59.

I was sort of on the tail end of this series when I was younger. I watched it whenever my parents weren’t home as they ‘disproved’ of such teenage drama. I thought Brandon was yummy, and Brenda was gorgeous. I think it was the first time in my life that I wanted dark hair. I liked the dynamic of the show and how it touched on some more series issues at times. I think those are the episodes I remember the most. This box set includes all 10 seasons of the show.

One reviewer on Walmart.com said:

It’s Beverly Hills 90210 you can’t go wrong. I’m so glad i have this tv show it was one of my obsessions back in the day could not miss any episode!!!!!

I have to agree, you really cannot go wrong with this series. While the styles may be a bit outdated (and the technology), many of the issues are the same today as they were back then. It is also a fantastic trip down memory lane for those who grew up during the 1990s.

While on Amazon.ca, I found a great deal on this Samuel Goldwyn Collection of six movies. Originally $59.99, this collection is on sale for $19.99 now. This is the cheapest that this collection has ever been. The collection includes six renowned movies: The Bishop’s Wife, The Best Years of Our Life, The Pride of the Yankees, Wuthering Heights, Hans Christian Anderson, Guys and Dolls. I have seen Guys and Dolls… it is an incredible movie.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Quantum Leap The Complete Series On DVD Was $180 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 7:57 AM

Quantum Leap The Complete Series On DVD Was $180 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

I am so excited to see this TV series pop up as an amazing deal, and cannot wait to settle in with my own copy! Right now, you can grab Quantum Leap The Complete Series on DVD. This series was $179.99, but you can have it today only for $54.99. This item will also ship to you free with super saver shipping.

Sci-fi fans, you cannot be without this series in your collection. This compilation disc set has only been available on the market since last April, so fans can rejoice at having a set all their own without having to purchase seasons individually. This fantastic series started in 1989 and ran for five seasons. In this series, a scientist named Sam Beckett is studying the idea of time travel and string theory. In order to ensure his funding continues, he jumps into his time travel machine prematurely. My husband works in academia and I can guarantee with the current state of science funding that Sam made the right choice! Sam finds himself in someone else’s body with partial amnesia. With the help of a holographic image named Al, Sam must right the wrongs happening in the person’s life he is currently occupying. With Al’s help, he then jumps to the next body, hoping each time he will hop back home to his previous life.  If you are unfamiliar, check out the full bio at IMBD.

Walmart Canada will sell you this amazing series for $124.97. Over at Best Buy Canada, you could pick up this same DVD set for $129.99. I found this DVD set over at Renaud-Bray selling for $164.99. I checked over at Chapters Indigo also, as this seems like a series they should carry, but it is currently out of stock.

If you check out the reviews over on Amazon Canada, you will find multiple reviews from very dedicated fans. The reviews are very long and detailed, so I will cut to the chase and give you the overall synopsis I see. Most fans are in love with this series and are watching the episodes repeatedly. A few were unhappy that edits were made to a few episodes from the original airing, including music changes and a few scenes cut short thanks to reformatting done to make this into a compilation. Overall, this should not affect your enjoyment of the series though you may notice a few differences from what you saw when it originally aired. Superfans should check out the full detailed reviews at Amazon for further details.

If your favourite dad is a sci-fi fan, this cult classic would be a perfect Father’s Day gift for him. This is about my price range for Father’s Day though I may give it to my husband for his birthday instead. I am sure there is a rainy summer day coming up soon. You will be ready for an awesome TV marathon day with this collection, just add popcorn.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) Was $25 | Now $10.49 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 3, 2015 at 4:00 PM

X Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) Was $25 | Now $10.49 @ Amazon.ca

**BUMP: This has now dropped down to just $10.49!**

Amazon Canada has discounted the X-Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) from $24.95 down to $14.49 $10.49.The original retail value of this set was $44.99.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amazon Canada: Clint Eastwood 40 Film Collection Was $165 | Now $66 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: Clint Eastwood 40 Film Collection Was $165 | Now $66 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

You don’t mess with Clint Eastwood. He is the quintessential badass of the screen. My kids will never have someone so badass in their movies as him. Watch every single one of 40 of his films with this hot sale from Amazon. Regularly $165, now $65.99, you’ll get all 40 films in one kick butt collection on DVD with free shipping on top.

While I typically don’t watch macho type movies, one of my favourite all-time movies is Gran Torino. This movie is included in this collection. If you haven’t seen it, it is a serious must-have! The emotions I had watching this movie, set in a changing Detroit neighbourhood were remarkable. It is one of those movies that leaves you with all sorts of questions of how to make the world a better place. Even still, Clint Eastwood is so fantastic in it as a grumpy old man who pretty much hates everyone (or so he wants you to believe). One reviewer on IMDB said this, and that summed it up perfectly:

This movie made me laugh and cry at the same time.

But, lets say you don’t like Gran Torino, well you’ve got 39 other choices! Other names I recognized are the iconic Dirty Harry, Mystic River, Letters from Iwo Jima, The Dead Pool and The Bridges of Madison County.

This would make a fantastic Father’s Day gift for the dad who has those old school, tough guy values and loves a good movie. Go ahead, make Dad’s day. The majority of the reviewers also enjoyed this collection and named off movies as their favourite that I had never heard of.

Costco sells this set for $108.99; Best Buy sells it for $144.99. So, just with those two comparisons, you know this is a great deal.

Shipping is free as it surpasses the $25 minimum.

Amazon Canada: 65% Off Belkin Charge & Sync Dock for iPhone 5/6 or iPod 5th Gen – Only $15 + FS On $25

Posted by on May 30, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 65% Off Belkin Charge & Sync Dock for iPhone 5/6 or iPod 5th Gen   Only $15 + FS On $25

Margarita previously found a great deal on this Belkin Charge & Sync Dock back in April for $15.11. Now it is back to a similar price, but better. While supplies last, you can snag this Belkin Charge and Sync Dock With Lightning Cable Connector for iPhone 5/6 and iPhone Touch 5th Generation for 65% off the regular price. That leaves you paying just $14.69 as opposed to the regular price of $41.99. Spend $25 to get free shipping from Amazon.ca.

This Belkin Charge & Sync Dock is compatible with an assortment of Apple devices. These devices include:

  • iPhone 5/5c/5s
  • iPod Touch 5th Generation
  • iPod Nano 7th Generation
  • iPhone 6/6 Plus

While this device is compatible with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it may have potential to overheat your device. It looks like users have had no issues so far, so I probably wouldn’t be worried. If I had the iPhone 6, I wouldn’t let this fact stop me. Just keep checking on your device to make sure it is not getting to warm. This Belkin Charge & Sync Dock comes complete with a 4 foot long USB cable, but you will need your own wall block. The dock I have right now requires me to take my case off of my iPhone every time I use it. Honestly, my heart races a little every time. I have had my iPhone 5 for two years and it still does not have a single scratch. I am happy to hear that this Belkin dock is case compatible, so I don’t have to remove my Otterbox every time I want to play my music or charge my phone.

This product boasts some pretty excellent reviews on Amazon.ca. With 89 reviews, it is left with an average of 4/5 stars, which really is terrific for just $14.69. I wouldn’t hesitate to add this item to your cart though, I am sure quite a few people have their eyes on this deal. From reading the reviews, I gather that this Belkin dock is quite sturdy. That is important to me, I have a two year old that tends to knock a lot of things off my desk.

Amazon Canada does offer free shipping on orders over $25. So perhaps snag two of these – one for yourself and one as a gift (Father’s Day Gift maybe?) to get free shipping. Otherwise you are looking at spending a small fee of $3.59 to have it shipped to your home.
