Amazon Canada: $80 Off WD My Book 6TB 3.0 Hard Drive – Now $250 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 19, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Amazon Canada: $80 Off WD My Book 6TB 3.0 Hard Drive   Now $250 & Free Shipping

 

Want the most extra space possible? The WD My Book 6TB 3.0 hard drive is currently on sale for just $249.99 at Amazon, down from a $329.99 price tag. It also qualifies for absolutely free shipping, so you won’t have to worry about any extra fees.

This WD My Book hard drive has a storage capacity of up to 6TB, which is the equivalent of 6000 GB or more precisely: a ton of movies and TV shows!

Such a large capacity hard drive isn’t just for graphic designers or professionals in general as it can be used to store entertainment files and whatever else you want to keep off your computer without worrying about running out of space.

It also comes with complete backup with WD SmartWare Pro software, so you can rest assured that your files will be safe no matter what. There’s nothing worse than storing all your files in one place, only to lose it all due to an accident or a simple malfunction.

Reviews

Short and to the point, here’s the one and only review on this hard drive:

Shipped fast and works great.

At Newegg, there are only four review and all of them rated this hard drive 5/5 stars with comments like this one:

Even though slow, very useful for dumping large amounts of data for archival / storage purposes. Good for the average user to use for simple video editing and picture / music librarys.

This hard drive boasts a 3.0 connectivity, so I wouldn’t expect this hard drive to be as slow as the reviewer above claims, especially since according to the description on Amazon’s site, it’s supposed to be “ultra-fast”. It really depends on how much data you are looking to dump on it though because if you are storing a couple of gigabytes at a time, then you can definitely expect for it to take a bit more time than if you were transferring just a couple of files.

Price Comparison

Speaking of Newegg, here’s how much this hard drive is going for at other stores:

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

Posted by on February 17, 2015 at 5:05 PM

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 Canada: Settlers of Catan Was $47 – Now Just $29 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 14, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Settlers of Catan Was $47   Now Just $29 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

It’s winter, it’s cold, so pass the time with a new board game! The Settlers of Catan is currently on sale for just $29.39 at Amazon right now. It was originally priced at $47.04, thus putting it at a 38% discount.

This is undoubtedly the lowest price that we have seen for this game in a very long while, so if you have been waiting for a price drop, then  now is as good a time as any to get it!

For those of you who have never heard of this game before, it’s a very fun family board game that is super easy to learn and needs to be played with 3 or 4 players. It’s not just for kids either. I have played this game a couple of times with friends, snacks and plenty of drinks. It’s not as fight-inducing as Monopoly but do keep in mind that some feathers can get ruffled, though all in due fun of course!

The Settlers of Catan is so popular that it actually has a near perfect rating on Amazon with a total of 4.8/5 stars and over 160 reviews. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

What I love about this game is that it’s engaging all the time. not your typical roll the dice move the mice game. you have to pay attention every time the die is rolled to it’s intellectually stimulating and requires strategy.

And here’s another review in case you need any more convincing to get it right now:

Love Settlers of Catan. lots of information when you first start playing, you may think to yourself ” Ill never understand this” Once you play a couple of times it gets addictive. I like the fact every time you play it’s a different board and the add on games to go with this are a big plus. Great way to pass those long cold winter days.

Since Amazon automatically ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this board game delivered straight to your door at no extra cost.

Toys R Us currently has the family edition of this game on sale for $34.99, while Chapters Indigo is selling it for its full price of $49.95.

Amazon App Giveaway: 37 Free Apps – Trivia Crack, OfficeSuit Professional 8, Runtastic Pro & More (Android Only)

Posted by on February 12, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Amazon App Giveaway: 37 Free Apps   Trivia Crack, OfficeSuit Professional 8, Runtastic Pro & More (Android Only)

Yay, free apps! Right now at Amazon, you can get up to 37 free apps. These apps are only available for Android users.

Here are just some of the top apps that you can get for free:

  • Trivia Crack (ad free)
  • 80 Days
  • OfficeSuite Professional 8
  • Doodle Jump
  • Glow Hockey 2 Pro
  • Sworkit Pro
  • Relax Melodies Premium Ambience Meditation
  • Bag It (ad free)
  • Listure
  • mSecure
  • Travel Interpreter
  • Shazam Encore
  • Runtastic Pro

Ever heard a song playing that you really liked but had no way of knowing what it was? Then Shazam should be yours to download first. It’s usually free to download anyways but Amazon is offering the paid version for free, which is Shazam Encore. Usually $4.99, it includes special features like unlimited usage, unlimited tagging, etc. I have used this app numerous times in the past and I can certainly attest to its accuracy. The great part about it is that it still works great even in a crowded area.

Candy Crush is great but if you’re looking for something new to play, then give Trivia Crack a try. My hubby and I have been playing this game back and forth for a couple of weeks now and it’s loads of fun. We both have the free version and while the game is entertaining, being bombarded by ads all the time isn’t so fun. At Amazon right now, you can get the ad-free version of this game, which would normally cost $3.49 on the Google Play Store. The goal is to answer trivia questions correctly and beat your opponent, which can be either friends or random opponents from across the globe.

If you’re planning on travelling any time soon, then you should definitely download Travel Interpreter as well. Regularly priced at $9.99, it has more than 2,200 illustrated words and phrases in up to 32 languages like French, Spanish, German, Russian, Arabic, Chinese, etc. Here’s what someone had to say about it:

The app is really useful. I downloaded the German one inside the app because I speak German already so I wanted to see how accurate it was. It’s pretty great and the phrases are simple and easy, great for anyone who truly doesn’t know the language. There are a lot of topics to choose from. I really like that you can hear how the word or phrase is supposed to be pronounced.

Fisher Price Disney’s Cheerin’ Minnie Mouse Just $25 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 4:20 PM

Fisher Price Disneys Cheerin Minnie Mouse Just $25 @ Amazon.ca

Every little girl needs one of these Fisher Price Disney’s Cheerin’ Minnie Mouse. Right now Amazon.ca has this Minnie Mouse toy on sale for 50% off. You will pay just $24.99 as opposed to the full price which was $50.39. You are just one cent shy of receiving free shipping too.

Minnie Mouse loves to cheer, and now for just $24.99 your child can cheer with her. This Fisher Price Disney’s Minnie Mouse Cheer Doll will raise her pom poms while she sings and dances to a popular song. Her pom poms even move to the beat of the tune. Minnie is about 14.5 inches tall and comes complete with her cute cheer leading outfit with her trademark polka dot pattern.

The lowest price Amazon.ca has offered on this Minnie Mouse toy was $18, but it sold out incredibly quickly. Right now you won’t find any other Canadian retailers with a lower price on this popular toy. For instance, if you shop at Sears.ca then you will pay a whopping $49.99 for this toy.

You may have grown up in a time period where Mickey and Minnie mouse were the be-all and end-all. Wouldn’t you love to see your kids in love with these characters too? Remember to switch Minnie out of demo mode when you take her out of the box so you can experience all 12 cheers instead of just the two demo cheers. There are lots of reviews on this product that warn you to be careful when pulling the demo tab. If it breaks off before you pull it out, your Minnie Mouse may need a minor operation. Here is one of the Amazon Canada customer reviews on this toy:

Oh, you just have to see this Fisher-Price Minnie Mouse! The expression on the face is just so adorable and friendly. The colors are vibrant. Just the way she is standing makes you want to give her a big hug. Our pre-schooler fell in love with the Bowtique Cheerin’ Minnie at first glance, and everyone else in the room totally agreed that this was a perfect toy for a girley-girl with several other Minnie Mouse toys and dolls. Love it!

If you can find something else small to add to your shopping cart, Amazon.ca offers free shipping on all orders that exceed $25 after discounts. You could always purchase this The First Years Disney Minnie Mouse Plate for $3.99. Amazon Canada generally ships quickly as well. Who knows how long this doll will be available at this price, snag this deal now.

Amazon Canada: $45 Off Diono Olympia Car Seat & Free Shipping – Now Just $255

Posted by on January 11, 2015 at 12:15 PM

Amazon Canada: $45 Off Diono Olympia Car Seat & Free Shipping   Now Just $255

I was browsing around Amazon’s Deals Store and stumbled on a great deal on the Diono Olympia cat seat in shadow. Originally priced at $299.99, you can now get it for just $254.99, along with absolutely free shipping.

The Diono Olympia car seat is a convertible booster seat that can be used for up to 49.90kg (110lbs). It has a 5-point harness and has been NCAP crash tested.

Reading about the specs is great and all but it also has the reviews to prove its worth. There are 35 reviews with a general consensus of 4.5/5 stars with positive comments like this one:

Overall I love this seat. It is narrow, easy to get my child into and comfortable for her. It is quite heavy, but not impossible to carry. I almost bought the next model up, but after reading some reviews where kids hate their head supports in it, I decided on this. So happy I did. This is definitely the seat to buy once your child outgrows the infant carriers.

Don’t like the Diono Olympia in black? No worries, there are plenty more Diono car seats to save on:

  • Diono Olympia seat graphite in grey/black: was $299.99/ now $254.99
  • Diono Pacifica seat sunburst in orange/grey: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Pacifica sea graphite in grey/black: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Pacifica seat shadow in black: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Rainier seat shadow in black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat glacier in blue/grey: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat graphite in grey/black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat orchid in purple/black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat houndstooth in black: was $379.99/ now $322.99

They all come with free shipping as well.

Just to give you an idea, I had a look around at Toys R Us’ site for Diono car seats and the cheapest one I found is the Diono RadianRXT on sale for $305.97 (reg. $359.99). It’s a different model from the ones being sold at Amazon right now but in comparing the specifications, they’re nearly identical with the main difference being that the RadianRXT holds less weight, has an included cup holder and can be folded flat. You’re basically paying more for the bells and the whistles but the safety of the seat remains unchanged.

The only Diono Pacifica car seat I found at Toys R Us is the one in shadow black and it’s currently regularly-priced at $339.99, whereas at Amazon, you can get it for just $288.99. Another point to mention about shopping for a car seat at Toys R Us is that unless you pick it up in-stores, you would need to pay shipping fees.

Amazon Canada: 49% Off WD My Passport 500MB Portable Hard Drive – Was $88 | Now $45 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 4, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 49% Off WD My Passport 500MB Portable Hard Drive   Was $88 | Now $45 (EXPIRED)

Looking for a bit more memory space at a cheap price? Then check out Amazon’s deal on the WD My Passport 500GB external hard drive. It’s down to just $44.99 instead of its regular price of $87.99 (49% off). Shipping is also free.

When looking up portable external hard drives, I tend to search for some that have the most memory for the cheapest price tag possible. This time around, I decided to tell you about this deal because as much as say, a 5TB hard drive may be handy for all that extra storage, I’m sure that many of you just don’t even necessarily need that much.

I use a WD My Passport portable hard drive to store movies, TV shows, pictures and extra files on my computer in order to make my desktop run faster. However, a large media collection is fun to look at but when are you ever going to watch half of what you have? So a 500mb portable hard drive may actually be perfect, especially since it’s on sale and budget friendly.

In fact, I was recently considering upgrading to a Seagate hard drive but I was actually deterred by how big and bulky it looked. This may be a silly factor to consider as it’s what is on the inside that matters but the WD My Passport’s appearance is actually what I love about it the most as it’s sleek and super portable. The only drawback is that it doesn’t come with any kind of protective pouch or case but you could easily just slip it into one from the dollar store.

Here’s a review I found for the WD My Passport portable hard drive:

Does exactly what I need it to do – store backup data. Password protection is great.

If you want a portable external hard drive with a bit more memory, then check out the 1TB WD My Passport Ultra. Originally priced at $109.99, it’s now on sale for $69 (37% off). This one actually an overwhelming number of positive reviews: over 115 with a total of 4.6/5 stars!

Since Amazon ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get either one of these portable hard drive shipped for free as well.

Littlest Pet Shop Style Set Was $59 | Now $20 @ Amazon.ca *HOT*

Posted by on January 4, 2015 at 3:45 PM

Littlest Pet Shop Style Set Was $59 | Now $20 @ Amazon.ca *HOT*

The Littlest Pet Shop sets and toys seem to be the fad with little girls lately. I was going to purchase some for my niece for Christmas, but was actually shocked at how expensive they could be. While browsing through Amazon Canada today, I came across this hot offer on the Littlest Pet Shop Style Set. This set was $50 but while supplies last, you can pay just $19.99. 

This offer is quite hot, so if you have a daughter at home who loves the Littlest Pet Shop, don’t hesitate to add this item to your cart. This adorable Littlest Pet Shop Style Set is stackable so it can be used in conjunction with other play sets.

Your little girl will be able to create, decorate and style her Littlest Pets to her own tastes. This play set comes with over 140 pieces. You can expect hours of entertainment with the included stickers, decorative pieces, multiple accessories and furniture. The scene backdrop is even reversible. This toy is suggested for children ages 6 and up. I can imagine that it would not be great for younger children because of all the small parts.

The pets included with this Littlest Pet Shop Style Set include Minka Mark, Kitery Banter and Sunil Nevla. Now you are even able to collect your favourite pets and play with them digitally. Each pet comes with a Pet Collector Token that will allow your child to bring their pet to life in the virtual world. All you have to do is download the free app from the App Store or Google Play to get started.

To make sure that this is the best price around for the Littlest Pet Shop Style Set, I did some price comparisons. This is definitely the lowest price available for this set, and the lowest price I have seen. This same Littlest Pet Shop Style set sells for much more at other retailers, have a look:

Amazon.ca does offer free shipping, but you have to spend $25 after discounts to receive that benefit. My best suggestion would be to add something small to your cart like the Littlest Pet Shop Bunny and Turtle or the Littlest Pet Shop Yorkie and Hamster to get free shipping. Both of these items are only $5.99 each which puts you just about the $25 minimum threshold for free shipping.

Posted by on January 1, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Up To 65% Off Lexar Professional Compact Flash Card 32GB & 64GB (Now Just $47 & $75)Need a new flash card for your camera? Amazon has a great deal on the Lexar Professional CompactFlash card: you can get the 32GB for $46.99 (reg. $114.99) or the 64GB for $74.99 (reg. $214.49).

Essentially the savings are as follows: 59% off for the 32GB and 65% off for the 64GB one. Both feature the following specs:

  • High speed file transfer

It’s a program that helps you recover most photos and select video files if you happen to accidentally delete a file. It can also help to potential recover a file if the batteries on your device happen to fail right in the middle of saving a picture.

Other sizes of this flash card are also on sale but for not nearly as big of a discount. The 16GB one for instance is more expensive than the 32GB one! It’s on sale for $54.84 (reg. $74.99), while, as I already mentioned, the 32GB one is $46.99. The 128GB one is on sale for $264.87 (reg. $362.99) but at that price, you may as well pick up two of the 64GB for a total of $149.98 instead.

Overall, reviews are very favourable for the Lexar Professional CompactFlash card with 14 reviewers giving it a general consensus of 4.7/5 stars. Here’s one example:

Great product. Arrived right on time, and just in time for a grizzly bear photographic trip on the west coast of Canada. Performed well.

Another reviewer noted the following:

Recommend this product to anyone shooting in raw or even jpeg (it may take you awhile to load it up). Great for shooting video as well

Other reviewers also praised Amazon’s fast shipping. In fact, I can attest to this as well. I often order from Amazon and am always surprised at how quickly my purchases arrive. Since Amazon ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get either one or both of these flash cards shipped at no extra cost.

Free Apps and Games for the Holidays @ Amazon.ca ($225 Value)

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Free Apps and Games for the Holidays @ Amazon.ca ($225 Value)

Amazon Canada is giving the gift of free apps and games during the Holidays, so fire up your smartphone or tablet and check them out. There are lots of apps available, choose from games, tools, and others. The Amazon Appstore and apps are available for android.

Usually Amazon.ca offers one premium app for free every day, but for the Holidays they are spoiling us just a little bit with over 35 apps for free. These are normally paid apps and will only be free for a very limited time, so hop to it and download the Amazon appstore to get started. Now, there are over $225 worth in top paid apps and games for free, too many to list. I’ll point out the highlights.

Angry Birds Space is available for free. This game is great! It was $3.10 before, which was a little too much for me to pay just to get rid of the advertisements. There is a version that is free as well but always has pop up ads. This version of Angry Birds has 40 new levels and 6 bonus levels. You may have found your new way to kill time during your bus ride or while waiting for your girlfriend to get ready to go out. I would jump on this game in particular, as it really is fun.

Colour Splash FX was previously $1.99 and now free. Have you ever seen those cool photos that are mostly black and white except for one focus point that is still in colour? This is how you do it! This simple and easy to use tool will give you a professional colour splash to your photos. There is also an unlimited undo tool if you accidentally colour or remove colour from an area of your photo. This is especially helpful on touch screen phones and tablets, trust me.

Age of Zombies: Season 2 was $1.07 and is now free during this Amazon Canada promotion. The popular theme to games and movies lately seems to be Zombies, so why not? This Age of Zombies game is all about the action. This is your chance to get in on the zombie-slaying action. If I didn’t have an iPhone I would be all over this game, even just to try it out.

Some of the other free apps will include:

  • Tetris
  • Fleksy Keyboard
  • TuneIn Radio Pro
  • Worms 3
  • Just 6 Weeks (if you have fitness New Year’s resolutions)

There are more too, so have a look and see for yourself. These apps will only be free for three days, as a little Christmas gift from Amazon Canada.

Amazon Canada: Philips Wake-Up Light Now Only $48.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on December 11, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Philips Wake Up Light Now Only $48.99 & Free Shipping
Now is your chance to be an early bird too – wake up refreshed and ready to start your day. You can save 30% off of the Philips Wake Up Light which is now $48.99 at Amazon.ca.

First, I was browsing the Costco Deal for the Philips Wake Up Light HF3510/60 for $99.99 and through my research and price comparison I found a very similar model, the HF3500/60, at Amazon.ca for $48.99. This Amazon.ca deal is not only 30% off of their regular price, but it also includes shipping. This is the lowest price Amazon has offered on this handy Wake Up Light.

It is so important to start your day off with light. It is only natural for daily life to start when the sun comes up and end shortly after the sun sets. However, you might find yourself having to get up earlier than the sun – especially in the Winter months when the sun can stay sleeping until 8am Amazon Canada: Philips Wake Up Light Now Only $48.99 & Free Shipping Philips was inspired by this need for sun, and produced the Philips Wake-Up Light. The Philips Wake Up Light  will use a great combination of light and sound to wake you up in the most natural way. You will find yourself feeling more refreshed, and have an easier time getting out of bed – which seems pretty priceless to me.

Your Philips Wake-Up Light will gradually increase from soft dawn reds to a warm orange colour to finally end up as a bright yellow light. This process will start 10 minutes before your set alarm time. After a little research, the only difference I found between the Philips Wake Up Light HF3510/60 from Costco.ca at $99.99 and the Philips Wake Up Light HF3500/60 from Amazon.ca for $48.99 is the light intensity.

It is proven that almost over 90% of the people who use the Philips Wake Up Light wake up pleasantly and find it a better method than their previous alarm clock

Also, if you are still unsure of whether this purchase is for you or not – here is a review from Amazon.ca:

Almost makes me feel like a morning person, You don’t realize how well it works until you forget to set it! This Philips Wake Up Light has changed my mornings. No more startled wake ups. I now just open my eyes a few minutes before my alarm even has a chance to spoil my morning

So what do you think? Is the Philips Wake Up Light what you need to wake up to every morning?

Amazon Canada: Star Wars Rebel Command Star Destroyer was $60 | Now $30 (EXPIRED)

The Star Wars Rebel Command Star Destroyer is now just $29.99 at Amazon, originally at $59.99. Save 50% now. Complete your collection and imagine you’re right in the movie with this model.

While I’m not a Star Wars fanatic (liked it enough to quote, but not enough for cosplay!) there are lots of kids and adults who would love to have this set wrapped up in a box this holiday. This set includes a lot of figurines along with the remote controlled ship including:

  • Luke Skywalker
  • Darth Vader
  • 3 Rebel Soldiers
  • 3 Stormtroopers
  • Star Destroyer
  • 4 Energy Blast Balls
  • Command Controller

The galaxy and its fate is in your hands. Fight storm troopers, crush the rebellion, and take on the Imperial Army.  Or just drive it around the room imagining you’re flying through space and chasing the family dog, I mean Darth Vader. This set will spark great imaginative play.

Often sets just give you a limited amount of pieces but this set seems to have a nice mix to start a battle right in the middle of your living room without a bunch of add on sets. It also includes an exclusive Luke Skywalker figurine to add to your collection so you know you’ll have a piece that’s new even for the most fanatic fan. The ship has a command control that you can use to send it flying forward into crushing battle, or backward for retreat. It can fire up to all four energy blast balls in a row for a little rapid fire play.

This toy says 5 and up, but let’s be real, the big kids will have just as much fun with this set. Set up battle in your living room or display it in your office, most star wars fans, big and small will love this toy. It’s a great toy for the kids, Dad, Aunt Sally, and the whole family to play together.

Snag this at Amazon, it also qualifies for free super saver shipping. At Toys R Us you’re going to pay $35 for the same set, and at Sears if you didn’t check your numbers you’d pay $55. This is a great saving in this toy at 50% off.

So Bargainmoosers are you with Luke Skywalker, or do you fight for the Dark Side?

  • Dual USB wall charger
  • Personal cloud

That’s actually a whole lot of uses for a device this small and that is just $50. Don’t judge it by its small size either as this nifty router packs a tremendous punch. You can use the router when on the go to convert a wire internet connection into a wireless network but keep in mind that it can only receive a signal and isn’t a LAN port.

The cloud personal storage is very useful as well, especially for those of you who travel with kids. Say you’re travelling with the kids, you could transfer a whole bunch of movies and TV shows onto an external hard drive or USB key, then connect it to the HooToo and wirelessly share the files onto each connected device (i.e. smart phone, iPad, tablet, etc.)

The dual USB charging part is also really cool, especially if there are numerous devices in need or charging in your household and just not enough plugs. My hubby and I have had to plug extension cords in nearly every room we use because of the terrible battery life on our iPhones ever since the recent update to iOS 8 and so this little device could definitely come in handy to reduce the amount of cords we have everywhere.

Speaking of which, the HooToo can also be used as an external battery as it features 6000mah. Basically, if you’re on the go and need to recharge any device from a phone to a tablet… anything that can charge via USB, you can simply plug the device into the HooToo and recharge it that way without the need for a plug. This could be particularly useful for students or any frequent traveller in general.

It also has a general consensus of 4.5 stars out of 5 with over 460 reviews. Here’s what someone had to say about it:

I own all the items in the HooToo Tripmate series, and this one is perfect for short trips or a long work day. This Tripmate mini is great for 3 day vacations because the battery is great for a flight and the router capabilities makes it perfect for your hotel. Just plug in an Ethernet press the power button, and you have wifi.

The only downside to an otherwise amazing gadget is that it doesn’t support Mac formatted hard disks.

Free Ubisoft Game With Purchase Of Select GeForce Graphics Cards Or Notebooks

Free Ubisoft Game With Purchase Of Select GeForce Graphics Cards Or Notebooks

Whether you’re planning on building your own computer, know someone who is or are maybe even looking to buy a notebook, then there’s a chance that you could also get one of the following Ubisoft game for absolutely free: The Crew, Far Cry 4 or Assassin’s Creed Unity.

What makes this freebie even more incredible is that none of these Ubisoft games have even been released yet, which means that you will be getting a newly released game for free and will avoid paying the usual $69.99 price tag! They’re scheduled to be released on the following dates:

  • Assassin’s Creed Unity: November 11th 2014
  • Far Cry 4: November 18th 2014
  • The Crew: 2nd December 2014

Although this GeForce freebie is only valid on the following select graphic cards and notebooks, it’s still a really awesome one to take advantage of:

  • GTX 980
  • GTX 970
  • 980M notebook
  • 970M notebook

The complete list of retailers from which you can get these is available on GeForce’s site, but here are a couple of the major ones:

Each retailer also has a dedicated page from which you can easily browse the products eligible for the freebie but keep in mind that a couple of these will ship from the US and may incur higher shipping fees than their Canadian counterparts. For instance, although we frequently post and blog about Newegg.ca, this promotion only applies to Newegg.com, which may involve a higher shipping rate along with the possibility of duties and custom fees.

As such, I suggest that you price compare among the different sites to see which one would yield the lowest shipping rate. To avoid yourself the headache, first head over to either Canada Computers, Memory Express or NCIX as all three of these ship from Canada.

Once your purchase is complete, you can redeem the special GeForce coupon code that you will receive on their redemption page, which will then allow you to choose your free game.

Personally, I would totally opt for either Far Cry 4 or Assassin’s Creed Unity, both of which are highly anticipated games. Although both fall under the action/ adventure category, Far Cry 4 is a first person shooter game. So if you’re not too keen on first person shooter games, then definitely opt for the latter!

65% Off Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology 1989 – 1997 @ Amazon.com – Now $28

65% Off Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology 1989   1997 @ Amazon.com   Now $28

Na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN! Re-live all of the old Batman movies with Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology 1989-1997 as you can currently get it for just $28.10 (reg. $79.92) at Amazon.com.

My hubby has been on a HUGE old movies kick lately and just the other day, he binge-watched all of the old Batman movies and although he noted with a touch of sadness that they don’t seem as great as when he saw them as a kid, I know that deep in his heart, he will always love them. I also know that next year, or in a couple of years or maybe even as soon as in a couple of months, he will sit down to binge-watch them again because on top of being a fan of movies from the 1990’s, he is also a big-time Batman fan. I can’t even begin to tell you how many Batman t-shirts he owns!

His birthday is fast approaching in a little over a month and I know that he will love this anthology as it includes all 4 of the Batman movies produced by Warner Bros:

  • Batman (1989)
  • Batman Returns (1992)
  • Batman Forever (1995)
  • Batman & Robin (1997)

With a total of 8 discs, this anthology is definitely a steal of deal, especially since it also comes with a very long list of special features like additional scenes and segments like “from Jack to Joker”, “on the set with Bob Kane”, “designing the bat suit”, “freeze frame: the visual effects of Batman & Robin”. In fact, the list actually contains close to 35 special features!

Now for the fun part: originally, I found this same Batman anthology on sale for $66 at Amazon.ca, down from an original price of $129.99. Even there, it sounded like an amazing deal, especially since it includes free shipping. However, Amazon.com’s deal is actually significantly better because even with the shipping fees, it’s still cheaper than the one on the Canadian side. Adding the anthology to my shopping cart at Amazon.com, $7.98 shipping fees were added for a total of $36.13, which is nearly half the price than the one at Amazon.ca.

And as if you need any more convincing, this anthology also has close to 500 reviews with a total of 4.3 stars out of 5!
