Amazon Canada: $30 Off HooToo Tripmate Wireless N Router – Now $50

Posted by on November 20, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: $30 Off HooToo Tripmate Wireless N Router   Now $50

Amazon currently has a great deal on the HooToo TripMate N router: it’s now on sale for just $49.99, which is a $30 discount from its original price of $79.99. Shipping is also free.

So what exactly is the HooToo TripMate N router? it’s a palm-sized little device that acts as all of the following:

  • On the go router
  • External battery
  • 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

Posted by on November 5, 2014 at 12:00 PM

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

Posted by on September 15, 2014 at 8:30 AM

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!

Amazon Canada: Up To 65% Off Select Lalaloopsy Babies Dolls

Posted by on July 22, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Up To 65% Off Select Lalaloopsy Babies DollsDolls and toys in general can be pricey nowadays, but they don’t have to be, especially if you take advantage of promotions like the one that Amazon has going on right now. For a limited time, you can save up to 65% off select Lalaloopsy babies dolls. But hurry because these are definitely selling quick!

Having never heard of these dolls, I Googled them and as it turns out, these rose to popularity in 2010 and were originally called “Bitty Buttons” (which explains why they have buttons for eyes). From there, several mini-series and video games were also crafted around these dolls.

Below is a list of the dolls you can save on:

All of these dolls have fab reviews with one happy reviewer even posting the following on the pillow Featherbed doll:

One of my granddaughters asked me to get this for her. She was in love with it as soon as she opened it. Was very pleased with price and fast delivery.Thanks Amazon!!!!!

I was also surprised to discover that it’s actually $24.97 at Walmart. Toys R Us doesn’t have the Featherbed one, but they do, however have the Crubs Sugar Cookie and Mittens Fluff n Stuff for as high as $26.99.

There is also a really great deal on the mango tiki wiki mini Lalaloopsy doll: it was originally priced at $78.24 but is now down by 52% to just $37.45. Keep in mind that this one is different from the babies dolls and is more doll-like. She’s also not as big and can more easily fit in the palm of your hand. As noted by the many positive reviews, this is also the kind of doll that can be easily collected and if this is the one you choose to get for your little one, then be prepared for her to want them all!

Since there are a couple of other mini Lalaloopsy dolls on sale as well, like the Dyna Might down to $47.71 (reg. $77.57), you can get a couple of others in advance to surprise your child with in a couple of months… or you can just give them all at once too! In either case, now is a great time to shop considering their original retail price is rather high.

Also, all of these dolls feature a warning that they are not suitable for children younger than three years old as they come with small parts (accessories and little pets).

As usual, shipping is free on orders over $25.

Amazon Canada: Up To 60% Off Snoozer Cozy Cave – Now From $36

Posted by on June 14, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Up To 60% Off Snoozer Cozy Cave   Now From $36Get your furry best friend the cave of his/ her dreams and save a pretty penny with Amazon! For a limited time, you can save up to 60% off the Snoozer cozy cave and get it starting from just $35.99.

Available in small, large or extra-large (not available in medium), this cozy animal bed also comes in either khaki, plum or navy. To determine the size your pet needs, it is advisable that you measure carefully, especially since the cave is actually much larger than it appears on the picture.

Prices depend on the size you need. While the small features the highest discount: 60% off at $35.99 (reg. $89.95), the large is 54% off at $45.99 (reg. $99.95) and the extra-large is 55% off at $49.99 (reg. $109.95).

Although I, myself, don’t have a dog, I have seen countless videos on YouTube of dogs pulling the covers over themselves. Cute, for sure, but it also points to the fact that they like to be warm under the covers, just like us and this bed would definitely make it easier! Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

We have an almost naked Boston Terrier, we spend half the night covering her up. this bed or “pita pocket”as my daughter named it, is perfect for that cold dog that drives you crazy, make sure to measure because my bed is too big.

Although it might make me sound like a crazy cat lady, I’m really tempted to get this for my cat. I have two cats but one of them really loves coves and has even slept under the covers with me on more than one occasion. She already has a pouch-like bed but doesn’t go into it unless I open it for her, so I’m sure she would love this cave.

Even better is that you don’t have to worry about shipping because Amazon automatically offers free shipping on all orders over $25.

There are also individual games that can be downloaded at quite the discount. This includes some of the most popular games like Titanfall, Final Fantasy XIV, NBA2K and so much more.

Amazon Canada: Cuisinart Brewing System $39.99 (Was $120)

Posted by on May 10, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Cuisinart Brewing System $39.99 (Was $120)

Amazon.ca has a smashing deal on the Cuisinart SS-300C Compact Single Serve Brewing System for Keurig K-cups. Originally $119.99, the system is on sale for $39.99.

I did a little price comparing. This exact system (I compared model numbers) costs $149.99 at Future Shop. I found it on sale at London Drugs for $99.99 and Cookworks.ca was the best competitor with their clearance price of $69.99. Despite this Cuisinart brewer being on sale and clearance at other places, Amazon’s price is the best.

The brewer’s reservoir holds up to 10 oz of water and brews in under two minutes. The reviews on this machine are pretty divided with one review for each possible ranking. A couple reviewers said that the water wasn’t hot enough and one of those reviewers gives very good suggestions for how to easily increase the temperature. Another reviewer warned that coffee mugs do not fit in the brewer cup area so you would need to transfer your beverage.

Most of these reviews (including the positive) were given when the compact brewer was a much higher price. For this much of a lower price, I think it is worthy of consideration.

You will get free shipping on the brewer as it costs over $25.

Amazon.com: Free Song Downloads

Posted by on February 25, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Amazon.com: Free Song Downloads

Get free song downloads at Amazon.com from up and coming artists.

To get these free songs, you will have to enter billing information, like your name, address and credit card, but you will not be billed. There is quite the selection of songs, and even if you aren’t sure you’ll like a song, you might as well download it anyway since it is free. The song could be something that grows on you and you could love as you hear it, even if initially it didn’t peak your interest. This has happened to me a number of times, even from big stars like Beyoncé and Pearl Jam.

If you wanted, you could also read the reviews of each song, and then decide which ones you want to download. What I love about free downloads is that if you really, really hate it after you download, the delete button is way too easy.

I see music from every genre available like country, rap, alternative rock and more. I haven’t heard of any of the artists on the list, but that makes it even more fun, discovering new music.

Since these are digital downloads, there are no shipping costs or even taxes. Everything is free.

Amazon.com: Thief Gold for Free!

Relive they Halcyon days of 1999 with a free copy of Thief from Amazon and SquareEnix!

***Read the instructions below on how to actually get it for free!

If you remember playing Thief back in the day or you are just waiting on the new re-release of Thief to come out in a few days,  you should pick this game up. This is the updated version of the original Thief game. Basically, in the days before high sleep internet, it used to be a pain in the butt to update a game. Not everyone had the internet and it was painfully slow. The creators of Thief: the Dark Project wanted to release an update, they just released a new game called Thief Gold. It was the original Thief with a bunch of upgrades. New maps, voice acting, etc.

And this piece of gaming history can be yours for free. All you need to do is follow these steps:

  1. Enter your info at the Thief Mod Competition being put on by SquareEnix (You don’t actually need to submit a mod, just your info).
  2. Copy the code they give you.**Sometimes this code won’t work in the next step. If it doesn’t work for you, repeat this step. You might need to resubmit your info a few times to get aworking code.
  3. Click to buy Thief Gold on Amazon and enter the code from step 2. **You need to have an American address for this to work.
  4. Enter the code in to Steam
  5. Play your game!

Thief was an awesome game back in the day and it still is. Sure the graphics aren’t as good but the game is still fantastic. Older games will be totally fine with it because gameplay is all that matters. As for you kids, you should play this just to see what a game has to do to be great before all these new confangled graphics and the what not… AND GET OFF MY LAWN!!

Thief is normally $6.99 USD on Amazon.com but you’re going to get it for free.  No shipping of course because this is a PC Digital Download.

Amazon Canada: Seasons Of Sons Of Anarchy On DVD From $14.99 (Reg. $69.98)

Amazon Canada: Seasons Of Sons Of Anarchy On DVD From $14.99 (Reg. $69.98)

Amazon has an awesome deal on Sons of Anarchy on DVD for seasons one all the way to five, with prices as low as $14.99.

I just started watching Sons of Anarchy last week, and having already finished Season One (there are only 13 episodes per season), I can tell you all with utmost certainty that, yes, it is all its cracked up to be. In fact, the sixth season of Sons of Anarchy just wrapped up and now more than ever is the perfect time to finally get in on the action if you have yet to do so! A show that began in 2008, it follows the actions of Jax Teller, who begins questioning the motives and principles of Sons of Anarchy, the outlaw motorcycle club he is in.

Here is a quick breakdown of the incredible discounts to be had:

Since this is the kind of show that you can’t just start and never finish, these Amazon reductions are definitely worth taking advantage of while they are still available! Plus, pair it with something else as a nice little gift idea, and you can get free shipping on orders over $25.

We’d love to hear from you! Are you a fan of the show? Did you just watch the sixth season finale?

Amazon.com: Get Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag for PS3 for $30 then Upgrade to PS4 Version for Free or $9.99!

The latest game of one of the best series on whatever console you have from Amazon.com!

You’re getting the PS3 version of AC4:BF for $29.99 and then upgrading to the PS4 version for free or $9.99, depending. We’ll get in to that later.

This is a weird deal so listen up and hold on to your butts. I’m going to make a list for you.

  1. This is Amazon.com, not .ca. Get an American friend’s address and use that. Don’t worry, this is a digital copy so they won’t be shipping anything to your good friend Brian P. May of Des Moines, IA.
  2. Click on the link above and choose to purchase the Digital Version Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for PS3. It is $29.99 right now. It will give you a digital code to get the game.
  3. Sign in to the Playstation Entertainment Network account section.
  4. Click on redeem prepaid card under account.
  5. Enter the code you got from Amazon in step #2.
  6. If you got a PS4, you likely got a card in there with a free trial of Playstation+, Sony Unlimited Music and, most importantly, $10 to use in the Playstation Store. Redeem the $10 code in the same fashion in which you redeemed the code in step #5. If you don’t have this code or already used your free money, get out the credit card, you’ll need it again.
  7. Go to the Playstation Entertainment Network Video Game Store PS3 to PS4 Upgrade page.
  8. Buy the PS4 version on Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for only $9.99. If you have the $10 credit mentioned in step #6, you get it for free and have $0.01 left just for fun!
  • A couple of notes: first, I’ve tested this and it does indeed work. I now own AC4 for PS3 and PS4 for only $29.99. Secondly, you can redeem the codes on your console but I gave the steps to do it on your computer since you’re probably on your computer right now.

BOOM! What, what!? PS4 version for $20 – $30 less than retail! That’s right! That’s just how we roll here at Bargainmoose!

Amazon UK: Hunter Short Rain Boots Deal

Posted by on October 1, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Amazon UK: Hunter Short Rain Boots Deal

Anna mentioned this deal in the weekly Moose-o-mail (boy I like that term)! I was recently hunting for some Hunter Rainboots (also known as wellies) as the rains have started. I couldn’t find them any cheaper than $150 or on the rare occasion a $140 for just the short wellies. Anna and I worked together (deal hunters unite!) and found out I could get them on Amazon UK for so much cheaper.

Here are the guidelines for getting a great deal:

  1. The boots you buy must ship from Amazon.uk (not a secondary seller)
  2. Sign up here for Amazon UK’s newsletter to get a 20% off your order coupon code emailed to you
  3. Shipping and duty fees paid at checkout.
  4. Note sizing: in Hunter boots a UK6 is a US8, UK5 a US7, and so on for women

Here is an example of this deal in action. I purchased the Hunter Unisex-Adult Original Short Wellington Boots. Here is a breakdown of my order:

  • Boots: £41.62
  • Shipping: £9.01
  • Coupon Discount: -£8.32
  • Duty: £13.56
  • Total: £55.87

That translated over to exactly $88.50 on our Amazon credit card, which does not charge for foreign currency transactions. I couldn’t find those boots cheaper than $140 + tax here. I scored an amazing deal!

This requires a bit of deal hunting on your part. One thing is to make sure that above the ‘add to cart button’ it does not say “In stock. Sold by _____as that means it is not sold by Amazon UK. You need it to be sold by Amazon UK for it to accept the coupon discount.

Here is a good deal if you want the taller boots. Pick up these Hunter Unisex Original Tall Colours Wellington Boots in Aubergine (size UK6, US8) for £44.49. After VAT is removed and the coupon code is added that comes down to £29.66. To get them to me it would be:

  • Boots: £37.08
  • Shipping: £28.93
  • Coupon Discount: £7.42
  • Duty: £12.08
  • Total: £70.67

That translates over to approximately $119. Shipping for the tall boots is pretty expensive so I think you can get a better deal on the short wellies like I did. It could be cheaper for Eastern Canada though. The other great thing with this deal is it includes duty so there are no extra charges on your package. The price you pay at the end is all-inclusive.

There are seven discs in this set plus a bonus disc with some pretty cool features. This is a limited edition set with 41 episodes over three seasons.

My kids absolutely love Scooby Doo and I think they’ve seen everything out there that they can see with Scooby Doo in it. We even considered naming our dog Scooby if it were a boy, but instead she was a girl so we named her Ruby. Still considering adding the boy dog just so we can have Scooby and Ruby. Anyway, this is a fantastic show with “meddling kids”, ghosts and a lot of references only adults could understand. It is a great show for adults and kids to enjoy.

Shipping is free when you spend $25+, which you are in this case, so it ships for free too!

Amazon Canada: 60% Off HP Officejet 6600 Printer/Scanner/Copier

Back to school can be expensive with all of the electronics that high school and college students need. Printers are a must for any student, but they can be pricey. Amazon Canada has a great deal on a three in one printer right now.  Get the HP Officejet 6600 printer, scanner, and copier at 60% off the regular price.

This HP printer was $149.99 and is now just $59.99.  That is a whopping savings of $90 or 60% off the regular price.

Here is a little more about this printer:

  • It will Print, copy, scan, fax
  • Can connect to the web
  • Print at ISO speeds up to 14 ppm
  • Prints in black and 8 ppm color
  • Has ePrint (Print from a variety of mobile devices on the go)
  • High-capacity cartridges

I did some price comparisons for this all in one printer and found it for sale at a few different places.  It was on sale for $89.99 over at Best Buy Canada and Future Shop Canada (regularly $149.99). I also found it at Staples Canada for $89.92 on sale as well (regularly $149.92). Basically, every place I looked at had this printer on sale, but the absolute lowest price was listed at Amazon Canada.

As another bonus, this items will get free shipping!

Amazon Canada: Bioshock Infinite (PC/PS3/xBox 360) For $39.99 (Save $20)

Bioshock: Infinite is one of the most popular games to come out this year, and right now it’s yours for $20 less, from Amazon Canada!

People lost their minds over this game. People lose their minds over the Bioshock series in general, but Bioshock: Infinite seems to have really taken off. On Metacritic it has a 94/100 from professional reviewers, with 68 positive reviews and no mixed or negative reviews. The users are a bit harder on it with an 84/100. Still, not too shabby. A lot of the negative player reviews are 0/100 or 10/100 which, to me, means you thought you were getting a My Little Pony game and accidentally got this, or you’re just being hateful. Most people agree that this game is great, so go for it and ignore all the hateful reviewers.

The game is normally $59.99, but Amazon is saving you $20, so you only pay $39.99. I checked around some other places and it looks like everyone else is still selling it for $59.99.

Shipping will be free on this game, since it’s above $25!
