Apple Store Canada: 33% Off Refurbished 7th Gen iPod Nanos – Now $99

Posted by on August 15, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Apple Store Canada: 33% Off Refurbished 7th Gen iPod Nanos   Now $99

I seriously need a new iPod. I do not know what generation my iPod Touch is, but I am estimating a 2nd or 3rd generation. However, paying full price? Not my thing. So, it is fabulous that Apple Canada has a bunch of refurbished iPod Nanos on sale for 33% off their original price! Originally $149, the 16GB iPod Nano is on sale for $99!

The only question left is: which colour to choose? EEK! I totally love the array of colours they have, but I am especially fond of the green.

The only thing I don’t like is that it now has the Lightning connector for power. I have a sweet iHome stereo system that has the old connector, and it would be a pain to get a converter, and it would look weird, too. However, I must catch up with the times eventually. Anyone know of some simple converters?

What I do love about refurbished Apple products is that they are all covered by Apple’s one-year limited warranty, and you can still buy protection plans for them.

These ship for free from Apple Canada.

Apple Canada: Refurbished Apple TV – $85 (Save $24)

Posted by on July 30, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Apple Canada: Refurbished Apple TV   $85 (Save $24)

I have been trying to chase down an affordable Apple TV for a while. Whenever they go on sale at Staples or wherever, they always sell out so quickly that even if I do place an order, it gets cancelled (boo). Right now you can get a refurbished Apple TV for only $85 at Apple Canada! (Thanks for the price correction!)

I LOVE buying refurbished. It comes with a full warranty and a smaller price tag. You are saving $24 on this unit. On Apple products, that is pretty good since they don’t often go on sale.

A friend of mine recently got an Apple TV and swears buy it. He has tried both Netflix and Apple TV, and just finds the selection and availability of what he wants is far better on the Apple TV, like night and day. I have been dreaming of getting one so that I can stream what is on my iPad directly to my TV screen, as that just doesn’t work without one.

Includes free shipping.

Quantities are limited.

Apple Canada: Refurbished 11.6″ Macbook Airs Under $800

Apple Canada: Refurbished 11.6 Macbook Airs Under $800

Apple Canada has a couple of refurbished 11.6″ Macbooks on sale for 25 – 27% off! You get a refurbished Mac laptop for under $800 with full warranty – what a score! There are two options to choose from.

This computer was originally $999 and is now on sale for $749! Features:

  • 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
  • 4GB memory
  • 64GB flash storage
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000

Now, you could pick up that beauty for $749 or you could spend an extra $50 and double your flash memory. I vote you go with this second option!

Originally $1099, you are saving $300 when you spend just $799 on this computer. Plus, with double the flash storage you are positively golden! It has the same features as the one above, just with double the flash storage. As these are both refurbished computers (which come with full warranty) supplies are limited!

I am a huge Apple fan, even though I am typing this post on an Alienware PC computer with Windows 7 right now. I own a PC because Apple makes sucky computers for gaming. I own an Alienware because it can handle the graphics and speed demands of PC games. However, every day I curse my PC as Outlook freezes, stops responding, and sometimes crashes. I curse it every time I try and look at my pictures and the picture viewer stops responding (every second picture). I curse it for not having an application like iPhoto which makes photo organization and viewing so much simpler.


Enjoy free shipping on orders of $99 or more at Apple Canada.

Apple App Store Canadian Freebie: Free Games & Apps

Posted by on July 10, 2013 at 2:30 PM

Apple App Store Canadian Freebie: Free Games & Apps

Apple is celebrating its fifth anniversary of the app store. In celebration, it is giving away five games and five groundbreaking apps for free that usually cost money!

These are the five games you will get for free:

  • Badland
  • Infinity Blade II
  • Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
  • Tiny Wings
  • Where’s My Water?

I’m surprised Angry Birds isn’t in there, but they probably just assumed everyone owns it already.

These are the five groundbreaking apps you will get for free:

  • Barefoot World Atlas
  • Day One (Journal/Diary)
  • How to Cook Everything
  • Over
  • Traktor DJ for iPhone

Personally, I am downloading almost all of them! I love trying out new apps when they are free and seeing which ones will stay on my system long term. I am really looking forward to some of the games I haven’t played before, too. While I already have Tiny Wings, I can’t wait to try the others.

Apple Canada: Refurbished 3rd Gen iPad 16GB Wifi – $379

Posted by on July 7, 2013 at 11:00 PM

Apple Canada: Refurbished 3rd Gen iPad 16GB Wifi   $379

Apple Canada has a great deal on a refurbished iPad with Wi-Fi 16GB – Black (3rd generation). The new models cost $499, but you can get this refurbished model with full warranty for $379!

All refurbished models include:

  • same one year warranty as new models
  • brand new battery and outer shell
  • all manuals and accessories

I would love to upgrade to the iPad 3 from my iPad 2 and at this price I can actually consider it. I love the new Airplay feature which allows you to stream content directly to speakers or your HDTV from your iPad. That just takes mobile electronics to a whole other level! I love my iPad and find it invaluable for university. I take notes on it and use it to organize my assignment and keep track of emails, appointments, group meetings, and class times. I like the ability to record lectures and it has a built in keyboard that I can actually type fast enough on for decent notes. It is light enough that it doesn’t kill my shoulders and add weight on top of my textbooks. I think the iPad is fantastic.

The refurbished iPad costs over $99 so you will get it shipped to you for free.

Apple Canada: Buy Mac, iPad Or iPhone & Get Up To $100 Gift Card

Posted by on July 3, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Apple Canada: Buy Mac, iPad Or iPhone & Get Up To $100 Gift Card

Get ready for university with a new Mac, iPad or iPhone and you’ll get a gift card worth $100 (for the Mac) or $50 (for the iPhone or iPad). You’ll also get education pricing and save.

Summer really just officially started, but it is so short that you probably have to start getting ready for September shortly, especially if you are going away to school. When I went to university, pens and notebooks were the most I needed, but nowadays everything is digital and kids have laptops and other devices to keep them at the top of their class. I am a big fan of Apple and have a Mac myself, and my husband has an iPhone. All we need is the iPad.

To qualify for this deal you need to be a post-secondary student, a student accepted to post-secondary school, a parent of a student, a faculty member or a staff member of any grade level. You can use your gift card for anything in the App Store, Mac App Store, iTunes Store, and iBookstore, like apps, music, books and much more. You’ll be set with a machine and the ability to load it with useful things.

You’ll have to shop at either the Apple Online Store for Education, the Apple Retail Store or an authorized campus store, and you’ll need your school information to get the special pricing and gift cards.

Shipping is free on purchases over $75, which this one more than likely will be.

Apple Canada: 25% Off Refurbished Mac Computers

Posted by on June 14, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Apple Canada: 25% Off Refurbished Mac Computers

If you want a Mac and have been waiting for a sale, now is the time to get one straight from Apple, with 25% off refurbished notebooks and desktop computers.

I have a Mac and absolutely 100% love it. I am a writer, a wanna-be photographer and just generally a creative person, and this is the perfect machine for that. It takes some getting used to at first, but once you do, there is no going back to any other machine. I’ve had this machine for many years too and it has almost always worked flawlessly. I could not live without it. If anything ever happened to it, I would not be opposed to getting a refurbished machine, which are all tested and certified by Apple and come with a one-year warranty.

Take a look at this MacBook Pro 13.3 inch with 2.5 GHZ dual-core Intel i5. I have no idea what any of this means, because I am so technologically impaired, but read more about it on Mac’s page to see if it is the machine you’d need. Now $1,019.

You’ll save $250 off this 11.6″ MacBook Air 1.7GHz dual core Intel Core i5, now $749.

Guess what else? Shipping is free! Well, it is free when you spend over $75, but you will if you buy a new machine.

Apple Store Canada: MacBook Pro (Refurb) Starting at $1019 (Save Up to $600)

Apple Canada almost never has sales so for the cheap among us (yes, I’m referring to you) have to shell out a ton of cash in order to get their products. But no more! Bargainmoose loves you so much (feels like I don’t say that enough anymore) that we are bringing you this sweet deal on refurbished MacBook Pros.

There are nine computers on sale here but I think the 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display is the best deal here.

A couple of things to note here. First, the $240 savings is based off of the regular price of a refurb. You’re actually saving $340 off of the cost of a new one. These also ship for free.

Like I said there are nine computers on sale anywhere from a 13″ MacBook Pro (refurb) for $1019 (save $180) up to the 17″ MacBook Pro (refurb) for $1899 (save $600) so there is something for everyone. The Retina display really is the way to go though. They have a 15″ MacBook Pro w/ Retina for $1799 (Save $320) and another 13″ MacBook Pro w/ Retina and a smaller 128GB SSD for $1269 (Save $240).

I don’t know how long this deal is on for but I know at these prices, their supply can’t last that long so hop to it!

WagJag: Save 91% on Classes to Learn How to Build Apps for Android, iOS or Both!

WagJag: Save 91% on Classes to Learn How to Build Apps for Android, iOS or Both!

WagJag is bringing you an insane deal. These courses are not cheap but with WagJag you can learn how to make apps for Android, iOS or both for less than the cost of a date. And if you’re learning how to make apps, you aren’t going on dates anyway so it’s a match made in heaven.

This course is offered by eCareers who, admittedly, I know very little about. I looked around their website and they seem legit. The courses are usually wildly expensive. You’re getting an amazing deal.
  • $29 for an app-building course for iPhone (a $312 value)
  • $29 for an app-building course for Android (a $312 value)
  • $49 for an app-building course for Android AND iPhone (a $469 value)

If you have a Mac to code from, the iOS and Android course is the obvious winner here. Even if you’re only interested in one of the other, you’re really crippling yourself right off the bat by neglecting a massive app ecosystem.

It seems like, from the description, the course is meant for all levels, which is nice. I’ve done other programming courses that are terrible because they are meant for someone who doesn’t know anything. If they can manage to present the course in a way such that everyone can use it.

Apple Canada: Refurbished MacBook Air   $719! (Expired)

If you have always wanted a Macbook but the price was too prohibitive, now is your chance! Get the Refurbished MacBook Air 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 for only $719!

Evidently the direct link wont work… so to find this deal you click through, scroll down to “Refurbished Mac” under special deals. It is the first offer there.

This is an incredibly good price, nearly 25% off it’s retail value if you bought new. Refurbished from Apple is just as good as new. They come with the full warranty your brand new Macbook would come with. At this price, the Macbook Air is a complete steal.

The computer ships for free. Man, do I want this under my Christmas tree!

There are probably limited quantities so i would grab this deal up quick. It is rare to see a Apple computer for anywhere near $700. This is a special limited time price according to Apple.

Apple Canada: Don’t Forget to Shop Refurbished

Apple Canada: Dont Forget to Shop Refurbished

This is a little reminder on one of the most obvious ways to save money on anything Apple: buy refurbished. Apple Canada has a decently stocked refurbished section right now. Some people shy away from refurbished computers, however, I embrace them. You get to save money, plus, they took care of the problem so you don’t have to.

All refurbished computers, iPods, iPads, etc come with the full warranty.

We have been wanting to get Daniel (my husband) an iPod Nano to go on runs with him. In the refurbished centre we could pick up an 8GB iPod Nano for $99 (reg. $129) or a 16GB iPod Nano for $119.00 (reg $149). I save $20 no matter which Nano I choose.

If you are really wanting to get your hands on an iPad (I know I did), check out the Apple refurbished iPads. You can actually really load up going refurbished. Check out this Refurbished iPad 2 with Wi-Fi+3G 64GB – (second generation) for $649. If you bought a brand new iPad with the same stats you would pay $849. You save 23% ($200) and still get the same great warranty.

I have been wanting to get my hands on an Apple TV which retails for $109. I can pick a refurbished AppleTV up for $95, saving me $14. A friend of mine totally loves his Apple TV, and I am excited at the prospect.

Apple Canada: iPad 2 Reduced – Starting at $419

Apple Canada: iPad 2 Reduced   Starting at $419

This is a really popular post over on the forums, and thought I would stick it on the blog. The iPad 2 has received a price reduction from the Apple Store: Now starting at $419 (was $519)!

If you are not the type of person who needs to have the latest model of everything, this is a great deal – $100 off. It comes with the standard warranty from Apple Canada that you can extend as well. The iPad 2 is a great improvement over the iPad 1. It has a camera (big difference) and even my husband sees that the screen on the iPad 2 is brighter and a better quality that the one on the iPad 1. I notice that it is a bit lighter and I really enjoy the magnetic cover so I can show off my fabulous Gelaskin on the back.

Thanks so much to Mooser Margie for posting this on the hot deals forum!
