Boy Meets World Series Collection On DVD Was $100 | Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (Expired)

Boy Meets World Series Collection On DVD Was $100 | Now $27.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (Expired)

Check out the complete series of Boy Meets World on DVD. You get all seven seasons of this hilarious and cheesy show. This series was $100 but is now only $27.49. It qualifies for Amazon’s free shipping with a minimum purchase of $25.

Amazon is stocking us up with some of my favourite sitcom shows from the 90s this week. Yesterday Margarita blogged about Sabrina The Teenage Witch being on sale. It was not long ago that Anna posted about Saved By The Bell being on sale. It is time to dig out a flannel shirt and some Doc Martens for a 90s series marathon. I think we only need a good quality does of Sister Sister and Home Improvement to complete a 90s sitcom marathon.

I really loved this series. It was another one of those guilty pleasure shows, and I would watch the syndicated reruns repeatedly. I wanted to be Topanga once she grew out of the earth mother stage and became a little cooler. I cheered on Cory and Sean as they goofed around and learned a lesson or three in Mr. Feeny’s classroom. I loved the cheesy jokes, the love story between Topanga and Cory and the rebellious friend Sean with just a little bit of an edge. Boy Meets World Is a classic nineties sitcom with the right balance of cheese, lessons to be learned and loveable characters. The seven seasons of this show takes us from middle school all the way through college with our favourite characters as we cheer them on to make good choices and navigate growing up.

Did you wonder what happened to these characters after college? Disney recently created a spinoff series, Girl Meets World. Once you have finished all of the classic episodes in this box, the new series is worth checking out. Cory and Topanga are married now with a quirky daughter and an edgy friend. Girl Meets World does hold true to the essence of the original show. The new show has plenty of cameos and nods to the original series. Check out a little more about the buzz surrounding both the old and the new shows in this article from Entertainment Weekly. You can re-watch the original series with your partner or kids, and then have a few extra laughs at the new series.

Walmart has this series for the low price of $70. This series is also on sale right now at Chapters for $70. You could buy seasons one through five only at Staples for $17.81 a piece, but you would still be missing two seasons and would pay $89.50. I noticed Best Buy and Future Shop both retailed the complete series at around $75 but, neither had it in stock.

You do not have to take my word for it. There is plenty of love for this series on Amazon.

It definitely brought back my childhood. I used to love this show and when I saw that amazon had it on sale I knew that I had to buy it. And still to this day, this show does not disappoint!

Grab it at Amazon while it is a steal. My husband was even eying this deal over my shoulder as I typed this out. I do not think the stock will last long.

To get you ready, here is a great funny clip from the show.

Bargainmoosers, what is your favourite nineties sitcom?

Amazon Canada: Three Blu- Ray Movies for $4.88 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada: Three Blu  Ray Movies for $4.88 (FS @ $25)

Are you looking to flesh out your movie collection while sticking to a budget? Check out the latest Blu Ray discounts where a single movie in Blu Ray format will cost you only $5 or less. On top of that, most (but not all) of these titles qualify for the $10 off three Blu-Rays or more deal so you will pay just $4.88 for three!

I looked up this section of under $5 Blu-ray movies again because there was recently two price drops on movies that moved them into this category. Taken, with Liam Neeson, dropped in price from $21.99 down to $4.88. I am actually surprised to see such a popular movie included in this section. Taken was a good movie according to me and other Amazon reviewers:

I was on the edge of my seat during most of this picture. It was VERY good. Of course, Liam Neeson is, perhaps, the biggest reason for this picture being so good. He is so convincing. I am looking forward to seeing “Taken 2″. I can only hope that it is as enjoyable as the first “Taken” is. You won’t be sorry buying this movie.

This is a good one to have in your collection, especially for this price. Pair the above movie up with two of any of the five following movies to receive three Blu-ray movies for only $4.88.

Each of these movies is only $5 right now. Add two of them to your cart with Taken and $10 will come off your order, essentially making those two movies free. That means you will get three Blu-Ray movies for only $4.88 – the price you pay for Taken. If you divide that price by movie, you are paying just $1.63 per Blu-Ray film. You cannot do better than that. I could trade them in at my local used DVD store for more than that in credit!

This is an incredible deal for three movies, even if they are a bit older. I chose Commando as it has Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie. He can be quite entertaining. I also chose Courage under Fire as that movie is pretty darn famous. Denzel Washington and Meg Ryan lead a fantastic cast. I miss seeing Meg Ryan in movies; she was one of the actors I liked best.

Amazon Canada: $97 Off Sabrina The Teenage Witch Complete Series Box Set – Now $62 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: $97 Off Sabrina The Teenage Witch Complete Series Box Set   Now $62 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Moosers, don’t you just miss Salem the Cat? I sure do! If you’re in the mood to re-watch the best TV series of all time (okay, I’m slightly exaggerating on that one), then grab the Sabrina the Teenage Witch Complete Series box set while you still can because it’s currently on sale for $62.49 at Amazon. It was originally priced as high as $159.98, which puts it at a 61% discount. Shipping is also free.

A TV series that first aired in 1996, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is an iconic series of the 90’s starring Melissa Joan Hart, Caroline Rhea, Beth Broderick and many other great actors. Here’s what someone had to say about this series:

This show is a classic. Watched it in the 90’s and ordered it for my daughter, she loves it! Highly recommend for good family fun.

The picture quality seems to be somewhat of a hit or miss with reviewers with some praising it as being clear and others stating the following:

The picture quality however is very grainy and is sometimes so bad it’s kind of distracting. The picture quality is the worst I’v ever seen on a dvd.

But I think it’s important to remember that this show is nearly twenty years old and so some graininess is definitely to be expected!

Browsing around Amazon’s TV show section, I also spotted a deal on the Breaking Bad complete series limited edition 2014 barrel. Originally priced at $299.99, it’s now 38% off and can be yours for just $184.99. During Boxing Day, this box set fell in price to just $120, but since there is no guarantee that it will go back to that price any time soon, I thought I would let you Moosers know of the current price drop.

On top of including all of the seasons, it also comes with a 2-hour documentary, a commemorative challenge coin, a Los Pollos Hermano apron and a “Better Call Saul” matchbook 4GB flash drive. Keep in mind that with regards to the flash drive, it comes with a coupon code to use online to unlock special content but although it’s unavailable to Canada, here’s a great tip from a reviewer to view it anyways:

Using a proxy to disguise my location allowed me to enter the code and see the site. There is a photo gallery of “Better Call Saul” & Breaking Bad props and a 4 minute video showing day one of filming at a skateboard park.

Amazon.ca: Transformers Age of Extinction Collectible Statue Set Was $120 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 17, 2015 at 12:24 PM

Amazon.ca: Transformers Age of Extinction Collectible Statue Set Was $120 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Amazon.ca is selling an incredible Amazon exclusive Transformers set for 71% off the original price. Transformers: Age of Extinction – Limited Edition Gift Set with Grimlock and Optimus Collectible Statue [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] is on sale from $119.99 down to $34.99. as per usual, all orders of $25 or more come with free shipping.

This is an exclusive to Amazon gift set so price comparing is just not possible. I did compare the set against Amazon.com where it is currently on sale for $44.99 US. Given our exchange rate right now, that is worth approximately $55.80. I think Amazon Canada is giving the better deal here.

I have not even seen this movie and I want this limited edition gift set. It is not rocket science to figure out why: you have Optimus Prime sitting on top a massive dinosaur (Grimlock). I have mentioned before that I really like Grimlock because you cannot get better than combining a mech and a dinosaur together. It is the perfect mash-up of prehistoric and modern technology. He looks wicked awesome.

Also, who does not like Optimus Prime? The guy is a truck that turns into a huge mechanical fighting machine. He is the saviour of the day, the noble metal hero who tries to protect humanity. In short: he is everything every kid ever wanted to have in a best friend. I watched the first two movies before I got a bit tired of the weak story line and just wanted to see mechs transform and fight. It seems I am not alone in my view on the movie:

The movie was great, not because of a cheesy story script but mainly for the CGI and mecha-action. I am not a huge transformers fan but the action figure is what got me into buying this movie. I am happy with the purchase and it looks and feels authentic! I recommend getting this item!!

Now, the movie includes Blu-Ray, Digital, and DVD formats. If you were to purchase just the movie separately right here, you would pay $29.99. Therefore, for an additional $5 you are getting this awesome statue. Even if you do not like the statue all that much, you could easily resell it for profit! You can really see why this is such a great deal when the Blu-Ray set alone costs almost as much as this limited edition set with the statue.

Amazon.ca: The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug [Blu ray] Only $13.88 (FS @ $25)

I LOVE The Hobbit movie series and plan to collect all three of the movies. Well, if you have not picked up the second film yet, then now is your chance. Amazon Canada has discounted The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from $24.99 down to $13.88. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I made sure to price compare with other retailers to ensure you are getting the best deal. This is what other companies are selling this exact Blu-Ray for:

  • $21.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $21.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $19.96 @ Walmart Canada

Amazon Canada has the lowest price for this movie. I am stoked at this offer because, out of all three movies, this is bar far my favourite. I love the scene with the dwarves in the barrels going down the river while the orcs are trying to kill them. AWESOME!

Also, in this movie we meet the dragon. I have read The Hobbit many times over since I was a child and my favourite part was always the dragon. Not only was he a powerful force to be reckoned with – he also seemed rather intelligent. Smaug was not just another mindless beast. i think Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed Smaug very well and I love the scenes with him versus Bilbo.

Honestly, for under $14 this movie is an absolute steal. When I saw the price dropped I could not believe my eyes and I am wondering how long this offer will last. I suggest buying soon rather than regretting later. It is wicked cool that such a popular movie is on sale for such a great price right now.

Now, this Blu-Ray edition appears to give you more than just the movie according to this reviewer:

Even with the extra scenes, this is a much more action packed movie than the first Hobbit movie. If you are at all interested in how films or special effects are made, then this Blu-ray is worth the price just for all the extras. If you do not care about the making of materials, this version may not hold as much value but the extended Gandalf sequence is probably worth the extra price.

I am usually not into watching the movie extras on my disks, but this is one movie I would watch all the extras for because I love the world of The Hobbit. By the way, if you were curious about the making of Smaug or just like to see Benedict hump the ground, check this out:

LeapFrog Read With Me Scout Was $40 | Now Only $20 (FS on $25) @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Have you been looking to purchase the LeapFrog Read With Me Scout Toy? They can be quite pricey. You’re in luck though. Right now you can get the LeapFrog Read With Me Scout for 50% off the regular price at Amazon.ca. That leaves you paying just $19.98 instead of the regular price of $40. Spend just a few dollars more and you will get free shipping with your $25 purchase too.

You can’t get much better than a cuddle reading companion for your little one for just $19.98, especially when the regular price of this LeapFrog Read With Me Scout was $40. This cute little dog will provide the perfect introduction to reading with many ways of interacting with your child throughout the compatible story books. Scout can read from 5 of the included books. Scout will even ask questions to get your little one’s mind working throughout the story and understand the story line better.

The books include with Read With Me Scout are:

  • Let’s Go Camping
  • Let’s Find Scout’s Toy
  • Let’s Learn About The Weather
  • Let’s Cheer Up Eli
  • Let’s Have A Party

The LeapFrog Read With Me Scout from Amazon Canada features 5 different touch points as well as over 70 different comprehension questions for all 5 of the cute illustrated board books. This is an excellent way to teach vocabulary and comprehension to children up to age 5. I actually notice my niece who is 7, reading along with her 3 year old little brother. So cute.

This LeapFrog Read With Me Scout for just $19.98 has some pretty great reviews on the Amazon website, actually. While you may be wanting the Violet version for your little girl, green is a pretty neutral colour. Scout is not just for little boys. Here is one of the customer reviews that may help your decision with this purchase:

My daughter absolutely adores Scout, ever since she was practically a newborn and was gifted a “My Pal Scout”. We were walking through Target and she just fell in love with this toy, and I later bought it here on Amazon.

I did a little price comparison as well, just to make sure that this is the best deal around on this adorable toy. Here’s a quick peak at what some other Canadian retailers are selling the LeapFrog Read With Me Scout for:

Unfortunately this item doesn’t quite reach the minimum shipping threshold. You will have to spend $25 at Amazon.ca to get free shipping on this purchase.

30 Day Free Trial of Kindle Unlimited @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 12, 2015 at 7:30 PM

30 Day Free Trial of Kindle Unlimited @ Amazon.ca

Amazon Canada is now introducing Kindle Unlimited. Much like our American neighbours, we now have the freedom to explore over 750,000 book titles. While this membership would normally cost you $9.99 a month, right now you can get a 30 Day Free Trial of the Kindle Unlimited offer.

Any device can download Kindle Unlimited from Amazon.ca. That means you can virtually read from over 750,000 titles on your iPhone, Android device or other smartphones and tablets. There are many popular titles to choose from. If you  have yet to read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, then now is the perfect chance. This book was one of my favourites, and if you enjoyed the movie then you will adore the book. The original list price of the digital copy of The Hunger Games was $12.99. Right now it is on sale for just $2.35 but that fee will be waived if you sign up for Kindle Unlimited.

Maybe you have a baby on the way, or are planning on having a baby. You can also choose to read What to Expect When You’re Expecting during your free trial of Kindle Unlimited. This book is great for all sorts of information pertaining to pregnancy and motherhood. This was my go-to book all through my pregnancy and helped me with a lot of questions when my doctor was not just a phone call away. This book would normally cost you $16.95 but is on sale for $9.99 right now. When you start your free trial of Kindle Unlimited, you will be able to read it for free.

Having the ability to read Kindle books on your mobile device has many perks. Books can be heavy – so by downloading Kindle Unlimited you’re not only getting convenience, but the ability to choose from multiple books on your travels as well. Sometimes I finish a book halfway through my travels. It would be very convenient to just select another book on your mobile device. There are so many books from DIY Projects to Brain Training and Wilderness Survival Guides.

Unfortunately this offer is not available to Quebec residents at this time. Also, please be careful to cancel your subscription if you don’t want to pay the $9.99 monthly fee. Otherwise you have authorized them to charge your credit card until you cancel. You can cancel at anytime by heading over to the account settings and adjusting the settings there.

Amazon: $20 Off Mpow Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Headphones – $30 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 12, 2015 at 7:04 PM

Amazon: $20 Off Mpow Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Headphones   $30 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada is offering $20 off sets of Mpow Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Headphones. Originally $49.99, the headset is on sale for $29.99 with free shipping (as these are above the $25 minimum).

Only the regular colour is available for this price. The green and orange headphones cost $5 more. I am not fussy on colour, so the regular black and green combination is all right with me. I did some research, and $29.99 is the lowest price they have ever been on Amazon Canada – and this is the first time a pair has come down to that price.

This is a wireless headset. Through Bluetooth, you stream music and phone calls to your ears. There are no cables to be tangled up. Imagine absolute freedom: your phone stays in your pocket and you just wear a simple headset around the back of your head.

The headset itself has controls so you do not need to dig your phone out each time you want to change something. You will find an LED indicator, microphone, track up/track down button, volume up/volume down button, multi-function button, and a micro-USB charging port.

These sweat proof sport headphones earbuds feature mic hands-free calling and are compatible with a range of devices including:

  • iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5, 5C, 5S, 4S
  • iPad
  • LG G2
  • Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, S3,
  • Note 3
  • and more!

The headset comes with accessories. There are small, medium, and large eartips to insure optimal fit. You will also receive two indoor leisure fit stabilizers and three outdoor sport fit stabilizers. These attachments go on the earpiece to make it more secure in your ear. You will also get a micro USB charge cable and a manual.

You might think that this headset cannot be that good for the price you pay. However, 107 reviewers have given this headset a 4.6/5 star rating. You would be best to read some of the longer reviews, but even this reviewer quickly summed up why he loves this headset:

I’ve tested a number of phones and these rate very highly for the following reasons: (1) they are comfortable, and (2) the sound quality is better than average.

For $30, you cannot go wrong. This headset would be perfect to take out jogging, running, or hiking. You can even when you are cleaning around the house when your family does not like your music.

PetSafe Drinkwell Stainless Steel Pet Fountain Was $100 | Now $50 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 10, 2015 at 10:53 AM

PetSafe Drinkwell Stainless Steel Pet Fountain Was $100 | Now $50 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Check out the Petsafe Drinkwell Zen Stainless Steel Pet Fountain. This fountain was $100 but now is only $50 @ Amazon.ca. This item also qualifies for free shipping from Amazon.

In our house, our kitty is a member of the family. He does not get everything he begs us for but we tend to cave when he gives us the right pleading look. Fresh food and water is of course important to have available for our pet. I know we do not always clean his water bowl as fast as we should to ensure his water is fresh.

Check out the PetSafe Drinkwell Zen Stainless Steel Pet Fountain. This bubbler was $100 but is now only $50. This large fountain with a pump should keep that water in your pets bowl moving. Keeping the water moving ensures that the water will be fresh for longer. This bubbling fountain also includes filters to help keep out odours, bad tastes and bacteria.

One of the great features about this pet fountain is the size. This fountain would easily accommodate a larger dog or multiple pets with its 1-gallon capacity of water. All of the pieces, with the exception of the pump, are dishwasher safe. That means this bubbler will have a quick clean up. I have a small basic plastic fountain with no pump for my cat, and the base gets scummy when I leave it alone too long. I end up over the sink scrubbing off that nasty scum. I know that mildew growth is not good for my poor kitty.

I am not seeing many other stainless steel pet fountains on the market at the major retailers.  I found one stainless steel 360 degree fountain at a shop called Ren’s Pets for $89. Ren’s Pets is based out of Ontario and ships all across Canada. Petsmart.ca has a fountain with a bubbler made of BPA free plastic at $77 that is only available in store but looks to be a similar size. If not having the fountain made of something other than plastic is important to you, Petsmart.ca also has a stonewear fountain for $99. I also found a larger 360 degree fountain in plastic  at New Egg that could handle multiple pets for $130. I would pick up this fountain from Amazon.ca.

Reviews overall are mixed on this fountain. The fountain is clocking in at three and a half stars with fourteen people who have rated it on Amazon. Some people love it and say it is a great product. Other reviewers say the pump is a bit noisy and expected to be able to clean this water bowl less often than it calls for. Keep in mind the number of times a week you have to clean the water bowl is impacted by how large your pet is and how many pets you have. Here is one reviewer’s experience.

PetSafe Drinkwell Stainless Steel Pet Fountain Was $100 | Now $50 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Overall, I would say this is a good deal. Most of the bubbler style fountains with a pump run between $75 to $100. This fountain has the added benefit of a large capacity to accommodate a larger pet or multiple pets. I would try this for my kitty and I only have one pet. Shipping is free with this order on Amazon. Grab it before it is gone and it should be to your house in a snap.

Take 50% Off The Crayola Widescreen Light Designer for Just $20 (FS on $25) @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Take 50% Off The Crayola Widescreen Light Designer for Just $20 (FS on $25) @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

The Winter is almost over – but it feels like it is going by so slowly. You might be looking for something to keep the kids occupied long enough indoors so that you are not ripping your hair out. Right now you can get the Crayola Widescreen Light Designer for 50% off at Amazon.ca. This discount leaves you paying just $19.99! You can get free shipping on orders over $25 too.

The Crayola Widescreen Light Designer from Amazon Canada will cost you just $19.99. The ability for your children to draw and display their art will be priceless though. Your little one will have lots of room to doodle, create a masterpiece or even make a to-do list. The drawing surface is actually quite large. When you are done, simply wipe the surface clean and start over again.

This Crayola Widescreen Light Designer is best suited for children ages 5-8 but my son has played with my nephew’s light designer quite often and he is only two. Just turn on the lights to bring the creation to life and any child will be entertained. You may even find yourself doodling away.

This seems to be the lowest price available so far for the Crayola Widescreen Light Designer. All other Canadian retailers seem to be selling this product for upwards of $31. To give you a quick idea of the price comparisons, I made a short list of other retailers that are selling this same toy:

The Crayola Widescreen Light Designer from Amazon.ca comes with 6 different Mini Gel FX Markers. While the surface easily wipes clean, some reviews say to be careful not to scratch the screen with paper towel or rough material. There are also 7 different lighting effects to make your creations even more interesting. You can either display your art with the wall mount or panel kickstand. Here is one of the customer reviews:

My daughter loves this, and I think it’s a great idea. The different lighting effects are a bonus. Everything is awesome and looks nice and bright. The colours show up really well. My only complaint is the screen doesn’t wipe clean very well. After using it a few times and wiping it clean it left small scratches.

You can get free shipping from Amazon.ca if you spend over $25, so maybe add something else small to your cart to get the best benefit of this offer.

Amazon.ca Deal: Blu-rays $9.99 & Under – Buy 3, Get Extra $10 Discount!

Posted by on February 8, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Amazon.ca Deal: Blu rays $9.99 & Under   Buy 3, Get Extra $10 Discount!

When I was browsing to see what the deals of the day were on Amazon.ca today, I spotted a little bit at the bottom called Featured Deals in Movies & TV. One such offer said, “Blu-rays $9.99 & Under – Buy 3, Get $10 Off.” I thought I’d check this out as it seemed like a great offer – and it is!

The above link will take you to the selection of Blu-rays that are applicable in this offer on Amazon.ca. There are 83 movies or TV shows to choose from, including a variety of different genres; from comedy to drama to sci-fi. Adding any three to your cart will mean you get an instant discount of $10 as you are going through the checkout. Here’s a screenshot of what you should be seeing at the end of checkout:

Amazon.ca Deal: Blu rays $9.99 & Under   Buy 3, Get Extra $10 Discount!

Sadly, the Blu-ray offer isn’t multiplicative – I tested it out to see if you added six items to your cart, if it would give a $20 discount, but that wasn’t the case. It looks like it’s only three per order in this offer.

Titles Available

There are some great titles available in this offer at Amazon.ca, some very popular shows. Here’s a quick list of a few that catch my eye:

I cannot price compare each and every one of the 83 items in this sale, I’ll need you to do your due diligence yourself on this one. If there are shows you are interested in, pop them in to Google.ca and make sure you’re getting the best deal for your bucks. I think that with the additional $10 discount, it WILL work out quite well. Just for an example, say I was to purchase I, Robot for $7, X-Men Origins: Wolverine for $7 and Die Hard for $7. In the end, the final price would be $3.67 per item!

What About Shipping?

Of course, we all know that an order under $25 on Amazon.ca will incur additional shipping fees – you only get free shipping when your order totals $25 or more. If you only choose to buy three Blu-rays, your cart won’t be over that $25 minimum so I would recommend buying something else on Amazon to bring your order up to that level. As you can see on a test order above, shipping on these items alone was about $6… definitely worth ordering something else instead.

Amazon Canada: Free Game ($70 Value) with PS4 Bundle Purchase

Posted by on February 5, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Free Game ($70 Value) with PS4 Bundle Purchase

Amazon Canada is offering a free game worth up to $69.99 with the purchase of select PlayStation 4 Bundles.

The console must be purchased from Amazon Canada (not secondary marketplace sellers). The game will be in the form of a code that you can redeem at http://redeem.us.playstation.com . Expect the code to be emailed out to you within two days of your completed shipment. The following consoles qualify for this deal:

The Destiny Ps4 bundle is no longer available from Amazon Canada. However, if you have your heart set on that bundle, then watch the link to see if Amazon brings some in. Now, for your free game you have a choice between four titles:

  • Destiny
  • NBA 2K15
  • Far Cry 4
  • Little Big Planet 3

I looked at what these games are retailing for right now to give you a good idea as to the true ‘value’ of this deal. Destiny costs $44.99, NBA 2K15 costs $60.53, Far Cry 4 costs $42.44, and Little Big Planet 3 costs $46.99 for the PS4 editions. While it appears that NBA 2K15 is the best choice, it will all depend upon which bundle you purchase and which games you already own. You will not want to choose Little Big Planet 3 if you are going to get the bundle that already includes that game.

While this may not seem like a huge deal, the game is worth approximately 10%, if not a bit more, of the price you are paying for the PS4. Thus, I think it is a nice bonus given the PS4 console is still new.

The offer limited to one per customer and account. There is no expiry date so you should see this “Get a Select Bonus Game with PS4 Purchase” under special offers and promotions. If that is missing, then the promotion is over.

I am quite curious as to how many of our lovely Moosers have already upgraded to the PS4 and what you think of it so far. I only have a PS3, and I am quite attached to it since I have opened it up twice to fix it – successfully I might add! I do not think I play enough console games to warrant a new console, especially since I can play most the current games on my old console anyway. However, I would like to know what you think so comment below!

Amazon Canada: All New Kindle Touch Only $64 & Free Shipping (BUMP!)

*BUMP! Also note that you can get the Kindle Paperwhite for $119, with a regular price of $139 and the Kindle Paperwhite 3G for $189, with a regular price of $209.* If you are looking to pick up an eReader this holiday season, Amazon Canada has the ultimate early Black Friday deal for you. Purchase the Kindle touch screen e-reader for just $64 (was $79) with free shipping!

This is the all-new Kindle with a touch screen display. It has double the on device storage – 4GB – that will hold thousands of ebooks. The eReader’s 6″ tall display is like reading a paperback novel and the slim design fits easily in your bag and in more generous pockets.

The basic touch Kindle takes only four hours to charge for up to four weeks of life! The device comes with Wi-Fi and a 167 PPI screen resolution.

If I were purchasing an eReader, I would purchase the basic Kindle for $64. However, if you need a backlit screen then you can also buy the Kindle Paperwhite. The paperwhite is on sale for $119, down from $139. The two main differences between the two devices are screen resolution and lighting. The Paperwhite boasts a 212 PPI and has the added benefit of the back-lit whereas the basic Kindle touch does not. Besides those two features, they are nearly identical units. Personally, I would stick with the cheaper Kindle.

I am very happy that the basic Kindle is now a touch screen as that is necessary in my mind. It makes aspects of reading like flipping pages far more natural. The basic Kindle has also won many hearts as it has a 4.1/5 rating with over 100 reviews. One reviewer said:

So far this hasn’t let me down. I’ve downloaded a number of books on it both through amazon and Baen books. No issues so far. The ability to push PDFs to the kindle has been absolutely wonderful for work. I can have a technical manual on my kindle and work in front of my computer without having to swap between windows.

For $64 and free shipping, I could see buying these as gifts for a few book loving friends and sticking it under their Christmas trees. While everyone seems to have a tablet these days, their battery life just does not sustain the length of time most bookworms like to read so a dedicated eReader is necessary.

Amazon.ca: LUCID 6″ Memory Foam Mattress Was $480 | Now $200

Amazon.ca: LUCID 6 Memory Foam Mattress Was $480 | Now $200

Are you in the market for a new mattress? Amazon Canada has the LUCID 6 Inch Memory Foam Mattress in Queen size on sale from $479.99 down to $199.99 with free shipping.

The Lucid 6″ memory foam mattress is dual-layered with a firm feel. The mattress alleviates pressure points and, moreover, provides foam support for a low cost. Memory foam mattresses are not cheap, and the original price of this mattress is a more accurate representation of the usual cost you can expect to pay.

I price compared this mattress with the original manufacturer’s website. They are having a Valentine’s Day sale right now, so a queen size 6″ memory foam mattress costs $187.90 US on their website (after coupon). That is equal to $235.73 Canadian. Purchasing through Amazon, you will also receive free shipping and avoid duties.

Now, if you want another size, they are also on sale. Here is the price tier:

  • Twin: Was $429.99 | Now $169.99
  • Twin XL: Was $439.99 | Now $169.99
  • Full: Was $459.99 | Now $159.99

The full size foam mattress is the best deal at 67% off. However, I do not know a lot of people who own full beds anymore, so I decided to focus on the queen size (everyone I know owns a queen bed).

To give a better perspective, I compared prices with other 6″ memory foam mattresses as well. I found a 6″ King Koil Double Memory Foam Mattress at Future Shop for $374.99. The twin size was $299.99. As you can see, the Lucid memory foam mattresses are a lot cheaper.

This mattress has 2″ of comfort layer of premium memory foam and 4″ of high-density supportive base foam. The manufacturer’s website says that these mattresses are perfect for children and for bunk beds. While they may not be that deep (6″ isn’t much), a child is small enough they will not sink all the way through. I think the firm factor will also help give older sleepers support as well, as many adults are pleased with the Lucid Mattress:

I liked mine so much I bought another for another family member. The convenient mail delivery was great. No harsh smells whatsoever. The six inch mattress on both are actually 6 and a quarter inches so it’s great. I have never had a more comfortable mattress I highly recommend this mattress at any price.

I encourage you to read through additional reviews as they are quite informative. Most people absolutely love this mattress, find it super comfortable, and well worth the price.

OtterBox iPhone 6 Case in Black Was $55 | Now $29 with Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

OtterBox iPhone 6 Case in Black Was $55 | Now $29 with Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Give your phone some tough protection with the OtterBox iPhone 6 Case-Defender Series. This durable case was $54.95 but is now only $28.75. Free shipping is also included with this order.

OtterBox cases have been one of the leaders in the market for phone protection for a while now. Their tough durable cases promise to be so tough you can run a truck over them and the phone would be fine. While I do not recommend testing it by purposely running over your phone with a truck, I do know these durable cases are tough. This particular case has a polycarbonate shell with a silicone slipcover. Add in a screen protector and your phone is protected from drops and slips. Make sure when purchasing you grab the black case, as other colours right now are around $50.

I do not have this case myself, or another Otterbox currently. I do have a very good friend who sings the praises of these cases. She is an elementary school teacher who is with young children all day. Having a case that will stand up to a few slips on the playground when you have 22 pairs of eyes you are tending to is critical. Her phone has been dropped on the playground, the gym floor, the bathroom and many other places without a scuff or a scratch. She will be the first person to tell you that the first grade can be rough and tough on your phone.

Check out the prices elsewhere below. This price at Amazon is pretty sweet in comparison to what the competitors are offering.

  • $54.95 @ Chapters.ca
  • $56.88 @ Walmart.ca
  • $59.89 @ Staples.ca
  • $59.99 @ Bestbuy.ca
  • $59.99 @ Futureshop.ca

Reviews seem overall good though a few folks were not perfectly satisfied. Here is one reviewers take on the case.

Otterbox fits in my hand nicely. Clear sticker covering home button looked cheap so I removed it. Screen protector is not flush to the screen so have to push harder for screen to respond… replaced with a tempered glass one – it’s awesome now. Case is light but feels strong. My phone is protected.

I suspect Otterbox is trying to figure out ways to make their signature cases more cheaply. There are several complaints of various minor issues with this case. Overall, this case seems pretty well tested and most people seem to be happy with it.

If you have been searching for an Otterbox or just for more protection for your phone, now is the time to grab this case. While I typed this post, I saw the stock decreasing so I do not think this deal is going to last long. This item qualifies for Amazon’s free shipping, which is a great bonus for this fab case.
