U-BAND Sport Armband Accessory Was $29 |Now $9.59 With Coupon Code + Shipping @ Tuango

U BAND Sport Armband Accessory Was $29 |Now $9.59 With Coupon Code + Shipping @ Tuango

If you work out, an armband holder for your phone can become almost a necessity. Over at Tuango, they have a nice little U-BAND sports accessory for your phone. This holder retails for $29, but it is on sale today for $11.99. Use our exclusive coupon code and the band drops down to $9.59.

If you are not familiar with Tuango, you should start checking out their deals. Tuango was only in Quebec but has recently expanded across Canada. Right now pick up this great U-BAND sports armband for your iPhone or Android. Use our coupon code MOOSE15 to take another 15% off any order at Tuango. To check out all the deals across Canada, make sure you have the indicator in the top left corner set to either your location or “elsewhere in Canada” if your city is not listed.

I always find it so much easier to keep motivated during my workout when I can listen to music. I have tried listening to podcasts and audiobooks, but nothing gets your heart pumping like some good songs. This handy little armband will keep your phone safe and secure. I tried a few times to shove my phone in my pocket and it just weighs you down.  I have used a similar neoprene and Velcro holder in the past and it was handy.

This deal comes with a few options that fit a variety of phones, but are all at the same price point.

  • Option 1 is compatible with iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6. This band is available in pink, black and purple.
  • Option 2 is compatible with Samsung S3/S4/S5 (Android). This band is available in hot pink, black and purple.
  • Option 3 is compatible with iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6. This option comes with a removable yellow pocket to stow a key or something else small. Colour choices include black, pink and blue.

The U-BAND armband is sold only through second party sellers on Amazon Canada and does not retail elsewhere. Wagjag has a similar phone holder that is only compatible with iPhone 5 and 6. If you were to pick up the deal at Wagjag before they sell out, you will pay $15. Over at Best Buy Canada, the cheapest armband I could find was $19.99, plus you would have to either pay for shipping or top off your cart to $25. I also found an Adidas universal armband phone holder over at Newegg.ca for $19.99. I think Tuango has a sweet deal for one of these armbands.

Shipping costs vary at Tuango and are dependent on the item you purchase. For this sports armband, a $4 shipping charge will be added to your final purchase. It also says that taxes are included, so that’s a little bonus for you as well. Grab one of these now while they still have your colour choice. I noticed many people have purchased this item, and these deals do sell out.

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.

Rayman Jungle Run Only $0.10 @ Google Play Store & Rayman Fiesta Run FREE @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on December 27, 2014 at 8:52 AM

Rayman Jungle Run Only $0.10 @ Google Play Store & Rayman Fiesta Run FREE @ Amazon.ca!

If you’ve got an Android device and want to grab a little game on the cheap, check out this deal from the Google Play store. Right now, they are offering Rayman Jungle Run for a mere $0.10! This little game usually can sell for up to $5, so $0.10 is a complete steal.

We don’t know how long this deal will last, so grab it right now if you are interested.

I went on a hunt for some reviews and ratings for Rayman Jungle Run and it seems to get overwhelmingly positive ones. While this score here on Metacritic refers to the iOS version, it shows a Metascore of 88 which is super. The user rating is 7.6/10, also pretty positive. It gets comments such as:

Perfect example on how a game should be ported and how a platform game has to be made. Graphics, music and controls are just top notch.

I’ve just asked my partner to buy and download this to his Android tablet. I’ve only got an iPad so I cannot claim this freebie. But I want him to put it on the Android tablet so we can give it a try. I’m interested to see if my 4 year old can operate the controls and give it a try as well.

The last time we posted about this game here, Shawn wrote about it being free on iOS. Well, $0.10 for Android is obviously not quite as good as being free, but it’s not far off! At that time, he said:

I always notice Rayman though because Rayman is awesome. I remember playing Rayman way, way back when it came out in like 1995. That’s almost 20 years ago!!

I agree! I can remember playing the platformer when it came out, with my then very young niece. I think we were playing it on the Sega Mega Drive, but my memory could be wrong on that front. I just remember it being a highly addictive platform game, and I am sure that trend continues with mobile editions.

UPDATE: I’ve also spotted that Rayman Fiesta Run is totally free today only @ the Amazon App store! Make sure the app store is installed on your Android device, just search for the app and you should see it for free. Rayman Jungle Run Only $0.10 @ Google Play Store & Rayman Fiesta Run FREE @ Amazon.ca!

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: OfficeSuite Professional 7 For Android Devices | Was $15 Now $1

Do you have an Android phone? Whether it’s a Samsung Galaxy, an HTC Touch, or another cell phone or tablet that isn’t made by Apple, it’s easy to see why Android devices are so popular – they’re not nearly as expensive as Apple’s iPhones and iPads, and they’re also very user-friendly. Today’s deal from Amazon Canada is for OfficeSuite Professional 7, a highly rated and very convenient program suite for Android devices that can allow you to work on documents while you’re on-the-go. Normally $15.44, you can now download this program straight to your Android device for just $0.99!

Along with its easy-to-use integrated file browser, OfficeSuite Professional 7 for Android devices is one convenient software package. It’s compatible with the following formats for text files: Microsoft DOC, DOCX, DOCM, RTF, TXT, and LOG. Spreadsheet files in the XLS, XLSX, XLSM, and CSV formats are also supported. Power Point and other presentation formats supported include PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX, PPTM, and PPSM. This program for the Android also supports PDF, EML, and ZIP files, and is Microsoft Office 365 compatible.

It’s always helpful to have a program like this on your phone. When you’re away from the office and you receive an email attachment on your Android device, it can be a bit of a challenge to check out or edit these documents, especially when it needs to be done in a timely manner. Thankfully, with OfficeSuite Professional 7, you can do that with ease, and if you rely on public transit to get you to your workplace every day, you can work on your projects during your commute!

OfficeSuite Professional 7 is currently on sale at the Google Play Store for $7.87. I’ve included a brief review of this Android program from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

There are a few things this app won’t do but what it does blows all other apps of its type away. It’s actually worth using. Nice clean presentation. Easy to use. I mainly use it for the word processor for writing on the go. With the exception of some formatting shortcomings, it’s quite good.

For $0.99, you simply can’t go wrong! I hope you all enjoy your Tuesday, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Google Play Store: Up to 85% Off Android Games

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Google Play Store: Up to 85% Off Android Games

Google Play Store is hosting their summer sale currently with up to 85% off games for your android device. The list of games just refreshed on the weekend, so enjoy an entire new list of games if you looked at the sale earlier this summer.

There are 22 games on sale, but rather than give you a list that you can easily see for yourself by clicking through the above link, I will talk about some of the games I have played and some I want to play. Unfortunately, Google does not mention the original prices of these games.

The Game of Life$0.50

I grew up with the board game version of this and I loved it. When no one would play with me, I would even play it by myself. Sometimes I had so many kids I had to ‘adopt’ an extra vehicle to tow them all around. I also have the iPhone version of this game, which is a lot of fun. It can be a bit repetitive, but I still do not think I have landed on all the squares. I really like the storybook of your life at the end.

Where’s My Water?$0.99

This game is nuts in a good way. I love how it combines puzzles, coordination, and a need for speed on some levels as well. It is a great game for adults and good for older kids as well. I especially like the hidden duck feature, as you want to spend more time on each level or revisit levels you have already completed just to find them all.

Final Fantasy V$7.99 (50% off)

This game makes me want to steal my husband’s Dell Venue 8 just so I can play it. The graphics look great and I just love Final Fantasy story lines. The game has nearly 6,500 5/5 star ratings alone! If there is one game in this sale that I want, it is most certainly this one.

Duck Duck Moose Reading$1.07

I could not help but mention this game because of the super cute name! It is a phonics reading adventure game for your children with a wonderful zoo theme. It looks like a fun game to help children master reading.

Pick up these games and more in the Google Play Store sale. If you have any game recommendations from the sale list, then please comment!

Walmart Canada: Hipstreet FLARE 2 9” Google Certified Dual Core Android 8GB Tablet Only $88.94!

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Walmart Canada:  Hipstreet FLARE 2 9” Google Certified Dual Core Android 8GB Tablet Only $88.94!

Hot deal alert!  I love me a good Walmart Canada Rollback, and I found a sweetheart of a deal in there today.  The Hipstreet FLARE 2 9” Google Certified Dual Core Android 8GB Tablet Only $88.94 (reg. $118)!

Click here to shop @ Walmart Canada now

I have been in the market for a tablet for a while now and I have yet to commit.  My soon-to-be-7-year-old has been quite literally begging for a tablet for about a year now and I’ve been putting it off for a few reasons:  I’m concerned about too much screen time, I don’t want to spend a lot but also don’t want to buy a piece of junk, and I worry about a tablet being destroyed by my younger son.  With all of that in mind I have been researching tablets quite a lot and really like the looks of the Hipstreet FLARE 2.  Here are the basic product specifications:

  • 9-inch LCD screen
  • Dual Core 1.5Hz A9 Processor
  • Android 4.1 (Jellybean) operating system
  • 8GB internal memory
  • Supports microSD cards up to a capacity of 32GB

This device is Google certified, which means that you have access to the Google Play store for apps, Google Maps, and other Google apps exclusive to certified devices.  This tablet also comes loaded with Hipstreet apps and services.  The High Speed Micro USB 2.0 port allows you to connect the Hipstreet FLARE 2 to a keyboard, mouse, external storage device, etc and the Dual Graphics Processor with HDMI Out port allows you to connect to any HDTV or flat screen monitor.  Talk about versatility!

Based on the specifications and the price, I feel like the Hipstreet FLARE 2 is a great starter tablet for kids.  We’re not talking about mass amounts of storage for vital information here, she just wants to play some games, take photos and communicate with her friends.  It also has front and rear-facing cameras for all the selfies I’m sure to see in her future.

Price comparison

I did some price comparison shopping and was pleased to find that this deal is really great compared to TheSource.ca who are selling this tablet for $159.99 and BestBuy.com at $139.99.  Walmart Canada has the Hipstreet FLARE 2 rolled back from $118 to $88.94.

Shipping

As if this deal wasn’t sweet enough, Walmart Canada still offers free shipping on all orders with no minimum!

Rogers: Reserve a Samsung Galaxy S5 and get a $50 Pre-Paid Mastercard (Only 10,000 Available)

Posted by on April 5, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Rogers: Reserve a Samsung Galaxy S5 and get a $50 Pre Paid Mastercard (Only 10,000 Available)

Reserve Samsung’s newest flagship phone at Rogers and get a $50 prepaid Mastercard!

This is a limited quantity offer so I don’t know how many are left or how long it will last. If you want to get in on this deal, do it right now.

If you are one of the first 10,000 people to reserve the new Samsung Galaxy S5 on a two year plan from Rogers, you will get a $50 pre-paid Mastercard which is good, because these phones are getting expensive. The pre-paid card won’t be a physical card, it will be on this totally awesome new technology called SureTap, which is going to be a place to pay for things using your smartphone! I had the OG Galaxy S and I currently have a Galaxy Note II both of which were going for $200 on a two year plan. I think I got a deal on the Note II but still, it was retailing at $200. And I thought $200 was expensive. Now they are bumping it up to $249.99. Why, back in my day I could go to the phone store with a nickel, buy three smart phones and still have enough left to make a mortgage payment.

But that’s just the way things go nowadays so you might as well take advantage of the deal and get a great phone while you’re at it. The Samsung phones really are great hardware. If you have a Galaxy S4 or a higher end phone from that generation, you probably don’t need to upgrade as the jump isn’t that great but if you have something around a Galaxy S3 or a lower end phone, this is a great one to get.

(Expires: 10 April 2014 or after 10,000 have been reserved)

WagJag Canada: 64% Off iPhone/iPod/Android Armbands

WagJag Canada:  64% Off iPhone/iPod/Android Armbands

WagJag Canada has a great deal on right now that I have actually taken advantage of in the past.  Save up to 64% on an armband for your iPod, iPhone or Android phone.

There are two options for this deal:

  • $12 for an iPhone/iPod/Android armband (valued at $25)
  • $18 for two iPhone/iPod/Android armband (valued at $50)

The cases will come in six different colours to choose from and there are no additional charges.  All taxes and shipping cost are included so you will no incur any hidden costs which is great.

I got this deal about a year ago and I use my armband every single day at the gym or when I go a walk in the nicer weather.  They are lightweight, comfortable and they have a Velcro adjustable strap so it will fit any arm shape. I got one the last time and have had a few people ask me where I got it.

It would make a great little gift for anyone that like the outdoors or goes to the gym.  You can even wear it inside when you are cleaning the house if you dont want to turn on the stereo. (I do this at nap time sometimes!)

You can buy as many as you would like and you will get your purchase within 2-3 weeks of the deal closing.

Amazon Canada: Ouya Android Gaming Console & Media Server For Only $70 (Save $30 – EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 31, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Ouya Android Gaming Console & Media Server For Only $70 (Save $30   EXPIRED)

Ouya! Get it for only $69.99 at Amazon Canada!

It’s normally $99.99, so you’re saving $30. I don’t know if this is a sale or a price drop. Only time will tell, but the console is still selling for $99.99 everywhere else. The reason I think it could be a permanent price drop is that quite frankly, these things aren’t selling that great. It’s unfortunate because they are actually really great little consoles. I think they are just having trouble finding who their audience is, which is unfortunate because I really think their audience is everyone.

The reason it appeals to everyone is that everyone has a game on their phone. Maybe it’s just bejeweled, to play on the train to work, or maybe you’re rocking some in-depth RPG action. The Ouya can play your casual games or your in-depth games. Keep in mind that it has its own app store, so not every android game works on the Ouya, but there are a lot, and some of them are real headliners.

One game in particular, Chess 2: The Sequel, is so good that Wired Magazine actually said Chess 2 on its own is a reason to buy an Ouya. Now, I suspect there is a bit of native advertising stink on this article, but regardless of that, it looks like a good game. Check out the article on Wired.

I mentioned that this is a media server too; a ton of home media server people love this thing as a media server. It runs the popular XBMC media server, meaning you can play downloaded content on your computer. No more huddling around the computer to watch a downloaded movie or show, or some family pictures.

For $69.99 plus free shipping, this is a fantastic deal.

To use this coupon, download and install GoLauncher Ex for free at the link above, go to Menu>Properties>About Go Launcher Ex> enter the code. That will get you GoLauncher Prime for free!

One of the most touted features of Android is the ability to customize it. You can customize it on the simplest levels, like choosing where you put your app icons and widgets all the way up to coding your own custom fork. Most people hit their limit at a new launcher. The launcher is basically what you see when you look at your Android phone. Your home screen, your app drawer, that is all based on the launcher. One of the more popular launchers is GoLauncher Ex. How popular is it? How about over 100,000,000 downloads? It’s literally one of the most popular apps, period.

It is free and it works fantastically. You can get other GoLauncher themes to customize even more. You want everything to be pink, get a pink GoLauncher theme. It’s as easy as that. The best part about this is that GoLauncher Ex is completely free. Of course, you don’t get 100,000,000 downloads of something and not figure out how make money. GoLauncher makes money in part from people buying GoLauncher Prime. This is what you get for free with this coupon.

GoLauncher Prime is normally $6. It gets rid of GoLauncher ads, give you app lock, gestures and some cool new compwiz-like (for the Linux geeks out there) transitions.
