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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Planet Earth
  • Wild China
  • Galapagos
  • Ganges

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is a sampling of some of the included apps:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 3:00 PM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Black
  • Army Green
  • Coffee
  • Grey

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Posted by on April 15, 2015 at 11:09 AM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Complete MacGyver (39 discs) Was $154 | Now $46 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 3:41 PM

The Complete MacGyver (39 discs) Was $154 | Now $46 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

I nearly missed out on this wicked deal of the day from Amazon Canada – I am so glad I didn’t! Amazon.ca has discounted MacGyver: The Complete Series (39 disk set) from $153.99 down to $46.49. As the set is over the $25 minimum, you will also receive free shipping.

I am going to confess: I have never watched MacGyver before. I know his name like I know the name of Mad Max… but I have never actually seen him in all his glory. In many ways, MacGyver has nearly become synonymous with being resourceful and able to get yourself out of anything.

This box set is incredible. You will receive a full 39 discs, which includes all seven seasons, the two televised movies, and tons of bonus features.

I tried price comparing with the usual spots, but so few vendors actually carry this series. Walmart Canada has the complete MacGyver for $150.18 and $89.99 at HMV.ca. The closest competitor to Amazon is Costco. At Costco.ca I found the set for $60.99. It is surprising how widly prices vary on this set but that is how it goes sometimes. I also found the set at a couple of places in the USA where they retailed for $80 or more. Even Amazon.com has the complete set for $82.49 USD. That is around $100 CDN after currency conversion and before shipping.

We have established that this set is a good deal, so now we just need to establish whether you will like the set or not. The call is easy if you have seen the show before. If not, ask yourself if you like to watch a man pull outrageous stunts to get out of impossible situations. Think of a cross between James Bond and Tim the Tool Man from Home Improvement. If the answer is yes, then purchase this set!

I also think this would make an excellent gift to anyone who is a fan. This huge box set is worth a lot of money. Just think, at 39 disks you are only paying $1.19 per disk. That is incredible value!

My first and only introduction to MacGyver was through that most educational of all TV series: The Simpsons. I cannot find the clip on YouTube (as they are really cracking down on that), but here is a fan tribute to the episode.

Amazon Canada: 61% Off Belkin Charge & Sync Dock For iPhone 5/6 & iPod 5th Gen – Now $15.11

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

Amazon Canada: 61% Off Belkin Charge & Sync Dock For iPhone 5/6 & iPod 5th Gen   Now $15.11

Quick! The Belkin F8J045BT charge and sync dock with lightning cable connector for iPhone or iPod Touch 5th generation is 61% off at Amazon. Right now, you can get it for just $15.11 instead of its regular retail price of $38.49.

The Belkin charge & sync dock is compatible with all of the following devices:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPod Touch 5th gen
  • iPod Nano 7th gen

It has an aluminum finish and comes with a 4-foot hardwire USB cable, though you would still need to use your own power supply. The great part about this dock is that you don’t need to take off the case off your phone each time as it’s case-compatible, which means that you can just plop your phone in whenever it’s in need of charging. Speaking of which, did you know that the best way to charge your phone by never letting it get to zero and charging it when it reaches 40%.

Here’s a review from BestBuy.com, where this dock is currently $31.99:

Perfect for the IPhone with the lightning connector, especially if, you are using a case. The design allows you to seat the phone securely and allows a phone with case to be set into the dock. To my knowledge, this is the only one of its kind, which allows that.

On Amazon, it actually has as many as 73 reviews and a total of 4/5 stars! So for just $15, this is actually pretty awesome!

iPhone 6

If you have an iPhone 6, then I have good news for you. This dock will accommodate your phone as well. The only thing to keep in mind that in general, an iPhone 6 uses a different USB charger from that of the iPhone 5. Whilst the iPhone 5 one is 5W, the iPhone 6 uses a 12W but does it matter with regards to the Belkin? Sort of but probably not. According to Amazon’s “Questions and Answers” section, one of the answers states that there is a potential for overheating. Other answers, however, stated that this dock works perfectly for the iPhone 6. So it looks like this is one of those things where you just need to decide for yourself if you want to give it a try or not. Personally, if I had the iPhone 6, I would definitely go for it!

Shipping

Amazon only ships orders over $25 for free, so you would need to pay the $3.59 standard shipping rate or add a filler item. Personally, I would definitely opt for the second choice, especially since you would only be missing a bit less than $10.

3M Polarizing LED Task Desk Light Was $159 | Now $79 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 11:06 AM

3M Polarizing LED Task Desk Light Was $159 | Now $79 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Improve your productivity with the 3M Polarizing LED task light for your desktop. This desk light was $158.96 but is now $78.99 @ Amazon.ca. You will also receive free super saver shipping with this purchase.

While I work from the comfort of my home now, it has not been that long since I worked in an office. Long days in stiff chairs with unfiltered lights can be straining on both your eyes and your workflow. I find that this time of year the strain from artificial lights can be worse than winter. You know you are missing the sunshine outside. Many of us spend most of our day in our offices and can benefit from products that will help us improve productivity.

You can improve your workspace with this fantastic 3M Polarizing LED Task Light. This lamp has a touch sensor and gives you five individual light settings so you can get the brightness just right. I find that the light level is very important if you work at a computer or do any type of deskwork that requires concentration. The light level adjustment and the polarized lens are the biggest selling features for this lamp. If you are curious about how polarizing filters work, check out the way this science activity for kids from the Exploratorium in San Francisco, California breaks down the concept using polarized sunglasses.

Elsewhere this fully adjustable lamp has a high price tag. I searched using the model number and found this lamp for $163.89 @ NCIX. Search a little more and you will find this lamp for $172.99 @ Tiger Direct Canada. For $192.36, Newegg Canada will sell you this lamp. Your best price is at Amazon Canada for sure.

There are no reviews on this lamp currently on any of the Canadian retailers where it is available for purchase. If you hop on over to Amazon.com there are three views of this lamp. All three reviewers seem happy with the product, and it has a rating of four and a half stars out of five.

While we are on the topic of light, my husband is a stickler for sunglasses. He refuses to buy sunglasses unless the lenses are polarized. The amount of glare they reduce is quite phenomenal, especially when you are driving at sunset or sunrise. Please do not tell him I borrow his expensive, bug eye pair of polarized glasses in the car sometimes when he is not around. This lamp should provide the same quality of light reduction. The polarized filter on the lamp will help reduce glare and eye strain.

Xbox One Just Dance 2015 – Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Xbox One Just Dance 2015   Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Well, Amazon Canada did it. They saw another company give a good deal on Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One and they decided to blow the deal out of the water in their own special way. Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One is now on sale from $49.99 down to $14.99. However, you will only receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Seriously, this blows all the previous deals we have found out of the water by $10. Oddly enough, only the Xbox One version is discounted whereas other versions cost over double this price. I also price compared the Xbox One version against other retailers to see if this is a trend. Here is what I found:

  • $24.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada

Pretty much, everyone still has the game for full price except for Microsoft. I have no idea why, but Amazon just came along and said, “we can go lower” – totally blowing Microsoft’s deal out of the water. Hey, it happens!

Since it has happened, you need to buy this. If you purchased the Microsoft version, then I suggest trying to get a price adjustment or just returning your copy for a refund and purchasing this one instead.

While I like the idea of this game, I have never been fond of games that require me to spend an extra $100 or so on hardware just to play them. I assumed I would need to use the Kinect, but there is no additional hardware required to play Just Dance 2015. Rather, the game track movements and scores using your smart phone. You just need to download the Just Dance 2015 motion controller app. This app will work on iPhones with iOS 6+ and on Android 4+ phones as well.

With this version, online multi-player is back. Dance with the friends you made on your last vacation or relatives living overseas. Dancing is a great way to strengthen bonds and promote community! Kids especially love dancing and they can show off their moves in Just Dance 2015. I think it would be fun for kids and their cousins, who may live in a different part of Canada, to be able to dance together over this game. It sounds cool!

DEWALT Reciprocating 12 Piece Saw Blade Set With Case Was $53 | Now $20 + FS On $25 @ Amazon.ca

DEWALT Reciprocating 12 Piece Saw Blade Set With Case Was $53 | Now $20 + FS On $25 @ Amazon.ca

Warmer months have arrived, and that might leave you with more time doing renovations or hobbies outdoors. If your hobby involves cutting wood or other materials, then you probably have a reciprocating saw. Replacing the blades can be costly, but right now Amazon.ca has the DEWALT DW4892 Reciprocating Saw Blade Set with Case on for $19.99 instead of the original price of $52.42. Spend just a few dollars more and you will get free shipping too.

The Dewalt Reciprocating Saw Blade Set with Case has 12 pieces. It is shipped from and sold by Amazon, and out of 14 reviews it still holds a 4.5 star rating. There is an excellent amount of blades here for this low price of just $19.99 at Amazon Canada. DEWALT makes pretty high quality blades too, so they should last quite a while. Hint, hint. This might even be a great Father’s Day gift.

Reviews say that these blades are great! One Amazon.ca reviewer says that he has used the wood blade and it was able to cut through thick nails as well. The case is a great feature to hold all of the blades. I am sure blades would be easy to lose, and you wouldn’t want your kids getting their hands on them either. You can expect this 12 piece Dewalt Reciprocating Saw Blade Set to be easy to store. There are two different types of blades included: for both metal and wood. There are several different lengths to choose from, to go with different types of projects you may be working on. You may find you don’t need all of the blades included, but you never know when they might come in handy. This case can even expand to hold 9-inch blades, although the blades included are only between 5.5″ and 8.5″. The blades included are as follows:

  • 5.5″ wood blade
  • 8.5″ wood blade
  • 5.5″ metal blade
  • 7″ metal blade
  • 8″ fire and rescue blade

Add just a few dollars more to your total and you can get free shipping. Amazon Canada ships your order for free if you spend $25 or more. This is wonderful because other Canadian retailers like Lowe’s have this product for $37 plus shipping!

Amazon.ca: Aukey 20000mAh Portable Charger Only $35 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada has the Aukey 20000mAh Portable Charger currently on for $39.99. Use coupon code UBY53ZB2 to receive an extra $5 off, which brings the portable battery charger down to $34.99 with free shipping. There are also no taxes charged on this device.

This is a big battery for a low price. You get 20,000 mAh, which is enough to charge your tablet or phone several times over. Your average iPhone 6 will charge at least seven times and this device can provide a full charge to an iPad Air.The Aukey will charge many different brands including:

  • Apple iPad
  • Apple iPhone
  • Samsung
  • Google
  • Nexus
  • LG
  • HTC
  • Motorola

The Aukey features AIPower Technology, which automatically detects the input current of your device and charges it accordingly. The device has up to 3.1A for two ports.

Four blue LED indicators display the remaining power and there is a built-in flashlight, which actually comes in rather handy in low-light environments when trying to find things in your bag. Be careful not to turn the flashlight on while the device is not in use, as it will suck up a bit of battery.

Charging is simple: connect your phone or tablet to the battery pack and it will immediately start charging and then stop when the battery is full. Your small electronics can connect using their own USB cables and you can charge two devices at once on the Aukey. The power bank includes its own charging cable. Enjoy a 18-month warranty as well.

I could not find this device elsewhere in Canada but I did find it in the USA. Amazon.com has the device on sale for $35 USD and Newegg.com has the device on sale for $37.99 USD. Given our exchange rate, the price at Amazon.ca is better.

I also compared similarly sized units. Anker’s 20000mAh bank costs $89.99. The device also has 33 customer reviews for 4.8/5 stars. Almost all reviewers were extremely impressed with the unit. One did mention that it is better as a laptop charger or something to drop in your bag rather than stick in your pocket. Evidently, the Aukey battery weighs around half a kilo.

I have never used this brand of external charger battery before, but I am always game to try new things. With good reviews and a great price, I think this power bank is worth trying.

Amazon Canada: $50 Off Cuisinart PerfectTemp Programmable Kettle (Tea or Coffee) – Was $130 | Now $80

Amazon Canada: $50 Off Cuisinart PerfectTemp Programmable Kettle (Tea or Coffee)   Was $130 | Now $80

Love to have a lot of options at your disposal? The Cuisinart PerfectTemp CPK-17C programmable kettle is currently $50 off at Amazon. Originally priced at $129.99, it’s now down to $79.99.

Not only does the PerfectTemp kettle look amazing but the great part about it as that it has a myriad of different options. It has the following preset temperature controls, along with the appropriate indicators:

  • Delicate (160°F)
  • Green (175°F)
  • White (185°F)
  • Oolong (190°F)
  • Herbal (200°F)
  • Black (Boil – 212°F)
  • French Press (200°F)

With the last preset, you can impress guests by making them a French Press coffee with your tea kettle… or you could just use it for yourself of course. This is actually a pretty neat feature because instead of cluttering your counters with plenty different tools to for coffee or tea-making, you could just have the one.

Powered with 1500 watts of power for faster heating, this kettle has a total hold capacity of 1.7 liters, has a 30-minute keep warm function, has a 360 degree swivel cordless connector and a blue backlit water window. It also boils dry and automatically shuts off when ready or when there is no more water. If you happen to lift it off the base before it’s done brewing, then it also has a 2-minute memory feature that will keep it from shutting off and losing the brewing time.

With all its bells and whistles, this kettle certainly looks great, especially with positive reviews like this one that I found on Best Buy‘s site, where it’s priced at $89.99:

I was struggling to find the perfect kettle for various types of teas, until I came across this one. It is easy to use, small footprint, and has no BPAs.

Other reviewers knocked this kettle for having “too much of a good thing” and that all of the options are overkill. The way I see it though is that if you don’t want all of these options, then don’t get it in the first place! Personally, I love having different options at my disposable, so to me, this is actually a perk!

At Kitchen Stuff Plus, PerfectTemp kettle is currently on sale for $99.99 (reg. $124.99), which is still significantly higher than at Amazon.

By getting it at Amazon, you’re also set to get free shipping as all orders over $25 automatically ship for free.
