*Hot* Save 89%! HD WiFi Video Baby Monitor Was $180  Now $21.24 & Free Shipping @ Lorex Canada

The Lorex HD Wi-Fi Video baby monitor is on super-deep discount today. This camera was $179.99 USD but now with a coupon code from our forums is only $21.24 USD. Free shipping is also included with the coupon code.

This is one super-deep discount today folks, so if you want one grab it quick. The first thing you should note is that Lorex Technology does ship within Canada, though the prices are in USD. When you click through the link, make sure the Canadian flag in the upper right corner is highlighted. Lorex  defaults to the American site, so make sure you are in the right site when you order. Then use the coupon code EMAIL15 to receive an extra 15% off your order plus free shipping. Please note that the shipping estimator in your shopping cart does not reflect the free shipping – but you’ll see that it IS free shipping as you proceed through checkout.

This little Wi-Fi camera is a portable camera that allows you to stream from your tablet or mobile in HD.  The camera can run plugged into the wall, or it can also run from the battery pack for up to three hours. Built in is also a nightlight feature to give the room a comforting low glow. You can also receive alerts for the temperature of the room or movement. You will need to download a free app to use this camera. The camera supports both Android and iOS mobile devices.

The single camera is on sale today, but so is a double pack of cameras. The two pack of HD Wi-Fi Video baby monitor was $359.99, but now you can have it for only $38.24. Wow! That saves you 89% off the original price for a double pack too, and these cameras will all sync up together! Check out my cart where I have picked up both a single and a double pack of these monitors.

*Hot* Save 89%! HD WiFi Video Baby Monitor Was $180  Now $21.24 & Free Shipping @ Lorex Canada

Over at BestBuy.ca, they are selling this monitor right now for $199.99. I also found another Lorex video monitor model over at Walmart.ca for $132.18. This monitor at Walmart has fewer features and operates from a monitor base instead of from a mobile device. Sears.ca also carries another Lorex baby monitor model for $169.99.

Reviews I have seen are tough on this camera overall. Most of the people who are frustrated seem most frustrated with the customer support on this product. Multiple people love this camera though and praise the set-up, with it being easy. I would not debate this purchase though, as I bet this price will not last long. Here is one happy reviewer.

The setup was straightforward – however, it took several tries for the camera to link up.  The picture quality is definitely better than most. The only feature that would have been nice is the ability to control panning, remotely.  App works on iPhone 5s, Nexus 5s, and Nexus 7 2013. Does not work with Nexus 7 (original). 

You could also potentially use these cameras as a doggy spy cam or even rig it up as a security camera. I would probably keep it inside, as this camera is not designed to weather the elements. I might consider hooking this up to monitor my garage entrance. Grab your camera now before they are gone!

Costco Canada: $115 Off Summer Infant Baby Zoom Wi-Fi Video Monitor – Was $225 | Now $110

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Costco Canada: $115 Off Summer Infant Baby Zoom Wi Fi Video Monitor   Was $225 | Now $110

Have you been looking for a baby video monitor? Costco has a pretty awesome deal on one! During the next couple of days, you can save 51% on the Summer Infant Baby Zoom wi-fi video monitor and get it for just $110.24, instead of its usual price of $224.99. Shipping is free as well.

Think of this video monitor as it being a regular baby watching device but with added wi-fi capabilities. This means that you can watch your baby from your smart phone, tablet or laptop, whether you’re at home or perhaps at work. It also has two-communication, so you could directly try to soothe your baby without actually going into the room.

As this is a wi-fi baby monitor, you can rest assured that it is secured with a login and encrypted video. Just make sure to make your password extra complicated with loads of different letters, numbers, capitals, etc.

It can also monitor the room temperature, and will allow you to pan, scan and zoom, whether during the day or night.

Arguably, at 2.5″, the screen is on the smaller scale when it comes to baby video monitors but at this price, it should be more than manageable. You don’t exactly need the largest screen either as after you get over the initial urge to check on your baby every single second, you will then only glance at it when you hear your baby stir or wake.

There are no reviews for this video monitor on Costco’s site but at Toys R Us, where it’s currently on sale for $249.98 (reg. $299.99), it has a total score of 3.5/5 stars with 16 ratings. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I am able to scan the entire room. I like that I am able to view & communicate with them with either the original unit or with my phone. the screen on the unit itself is pretty tiny but it’s a good size on my phone. The camera moves at the touch of a finger, faster on the unit, slightly delayed on the wifi. I like that you can add a second camera and I will likely use this as a nanny cam. It works well both in day light (colour) and in darkness (black and white).

Another reviewer pointed out the poor battery life, which they stated as coming down to 60% after two hours. I would argue that compared to other video monitors, this actually isn’t too shabby! I have the Motorola video monitor and it seems that all I do all day every day is charge it. Poor battery life seems inevitable with baby video monitors, especially when these are techier like the Summer Infant one as it as wi-fi capabilities.

Today Only! HALO SleepSack Crib Set Was $100 | Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 14, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Today Only! HALO SleepSack Crib Set Was $100 | Now $40  & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

I have the perfect present for those soon-to-be new parents. The HALO Innovations SleepSack 5 Piece Crib Set Was $99.99 but is on sale today only for $39.99. This item will also meet the minimum for completely free shipping.

The rules on what babies and kids should and should not have are changing all the time. There are plenty of things to fret about as a parent. When should I introduce solid foods? Is my baby spending too much time on their back and not having enough tummy time? A lot has changed when it comes to your child’s bed in the past twenty to thirty years. Help a new parent out and pick up this lovely HALO Innovations SleepSack set. This set includes:

  • SleepSack Swaddle for Newborns who are 6 to 12 lbs.
  • SleepSack Wearable Blanket for babies who are 10 to 18 lbs
  • A crib skirt
  • Two fitted sheets

You may notice this set has no bumpers or comforters on the crib. The cozy cotton sleep sacks will keep baby both comfortable and safe. These sleep sacks were handy when my little one was tiny. The sleep sack designed for newborns has velcro so you can swaddle your baby tightly without having to fight a receiving blanket that will not stay tucked in. Most newborns sleep better when swaddled. My husband, in his exhausted state, threatened to duct tape a blanket closed. Trust me you want that Velcro. The second zip up blanket will keep your kiddo comfortable when they are ready to stop swaddling. Two fitted sheets ensure that when the baby spits up in the middle of the night, you have a backup.

Price Comparison

This particular set is exclusive to Best Buy Canada, which makes it a little harder to compare. I compared the price of the two sleep sacks below at other retailers.

I found the Halo Sleep Sack Innovations Blanket for $29.99 at Amazon Canada.  The  Halo Sleep Sack Innovations Swaddle blanket is $31.99. With just these two items, you are looking at a total of $61.98 at Amazon Canada and that does not include the two sheets and bed skirt.

Over at Toys R Us Canada, a similar HALO Sleepsack is available in cotton for $29.99. A Halo SleepSack Swaddle is currently available on sale for $22.47. That puts your total $52.46 before you purchase the sheets or the bed skirt.

Reviews

Reviews on this set are fantastic, scoring very high reviews from buyers. Here is one very happy review with more details.

Today Only! HALO SleepSack Crib Set Was $100 | Now $40  & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

This is a great deal and makes a great baby present. Pick up this soft cotton set now and you will have plenty of baby snuggles ahead. This product says if you order by 4pm you will receive this by May 15th. I would not wait, some of the Best Buy deals sell out quickly.

Today Only! Safety 1st OnBoard 35 Car Seat Was $162 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 7, 2015 at 8:58 AM

Today Only! Safety 1st OnBoard 35 Car Seat Was $162 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Best Buy has a great sale price today on the Safety 1st OnBoard 35 Infant Car Seat. This seat was $161.99 but is now on sale for $79.99, today only. You will also receive free shipping with this purchase as it meets the minimum requirement of $25.

Best Buy is really pushing their home, baby and beauty line with some great deals lately. This Safety 1st infant car seat is no exception. Before my kid was born, I fretted over what car seat was safest. In the end while not all car seats not created equal, the technology of the leading companies is similar overall. Safety 1st is a known brand that provides many products focused on keeping babies and small children safe.

This particular car seat seems to have been available in many different colours for the seat cover. It is a basic model that seems to be comparable to the Graco Snugride. This seat does work for preemies, which not all seats do. On the low end of the weight limit, this seat will accommodate a baby who weighs as little as 4 lbs. They also note that this seat comes with more legroom than most. If your family is on the tall side, this might be what you need. This seat easily clicks in and out of the base, allowing you to transport your infant easily when they fall asleep in the car. You will also have a one-year warranty on the parts for this seat.

This car seat comes in several different patterns and variations. Other than the pattern on the car seat, cover there does not seem to be many differences comparing the specs side by side. Here is what I found from some of the other retailers.

There are three recent reviews on Best Buy’s website. I noticed the reviews have a higher rating and more reviews at some of the competing retailers. One user noted that the seat is not new on the market, so her car seat expiration was four years instead of six years. I think the only way you can get around that is buying a new seat that is newer on the market. The safety regulations do change quickly, and car seat expirations do not last long to ensure your baby is in the safest seat possible. Here is a happy reviewer.

I have compared many types and brands for my babies car seat, and nothing beats the quality and price of this particular one. I have recommended it to everyone.

If you need a new infant seat, this is a sure bet. You are getting a quality brand car seat that will keep your bundle safe plus a few extra features such as the extra legroom. At this price, it also makes a great second car seat for grandma’s car.

  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 4th May 2015

You can only take advantage of this combined deal today – so get right on it! This coupon excludes everyday steal items and hot deals. That gets a bit frustrating after a while, as there are so many of them. Essentially, you are looking for clothing with no ‘yellow text’ under the prices.

After coupon code, these shorts come down to $5.25 per pair. These are just adorable shorts for summer but they would get dirty easily because of the white background.

These cute little Crochet Tanks for Baby are discounted from $14.95 down to $8.50. After coupon code, you will pay just $5.95 for the top. These almost look like mini dresses and would probably be cute with just a pair of opaque tights on underneath. The top comes in a cool multi-colour (blues) and a warm multi-colour (pinks).

Thank you to Mooser Sabrina for alerting us to this deal!

Safety 1st Audio Baby Monitor & Safety Bundle Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 4, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Safety 1st Audio Baby Monitor & Safety Bundle Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Do you have a baby is on the way? Time to baby proof!  The Safety 1st Audio Baby Monitor & Safety Bundle was $70 but is now on sale for only $30. This item also meets the $25 minimum for completely free shipping!

When you have a new baby joining the family, safety is always on your mind. As you first become a parent you glance around your home and suddenly notice many terrifying things you never noticed before. A rectangular glass coffee table goes from looking chic to imagining bumps and bruises in only a few months. Electrical outlets in your home suddenly look like a frightening place for little fingers.

Whether you have a new baby or just have a baby gift to buy, this Safety First package is a nice little set. Inside the bundle, you will find the following items:

  • Safety First Compact DECT audio monitor with 1000 foot range
  • Two nightlights to keep you from stubbing your toe in the middle of the night
  • Four latches to keep cabinets closed tight from little fingers
  • Nine electrical covers to keep little fingers out of harm
  • Window blind cord wrap to keep strings out of babies reach
  • One year limited warranty on parts

I feel a little safer just writing about all that safety gear! Seriously, this is a nice bundle to get you started kid proofing your home. When I brought my kid home, I had a tiny apartment. Whenever she was sleeping, I kept an audio monitor with me for peace of mind. I also always took a compact monitor similar to this one when I traveled. It was handy when I was visiting my family to have a compact little monitor for my suitcase. I could relax more while she slept knowing I would hear her cry.

I am not finding this exact bundle sold anywhere else in Canada. I did find the baby monitor sold several places. As the monitor should be the most expensive item in the bundle, I thought we could look at the prices for just the monitor only.

Even if you were only interested in the monitor with no interest in any of the other safety products, this bundle is still a better deal. While I do not see any direct reviews for this bundle, Safety First is a known leader in the market for baby proofing safety items. Of all the places I found the monitor, I only see one review. The reviewer liked the monitor overall but said the charger stopped working.  Your new bundle includes a warranty for a year which should give you peace of mind.

Pick this up now and you will be ready for your baby or for your next baby gift. This item is only on sale for a limited amount of time.

Well.ca: 40% Off Blue Banana Urban Pod in Pink – Now Just $55 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 18, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Well.ca: 40% Off Blue Banana Urban Pod in Pink   Now Just $55 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Well.ca’s Overstock Sale is back and browsing the various reduced items, I spotted a great deal on the Blue Banana urban pod in pink. Originally priced at $92.96, it’s now on sale for just $55, which is significantly less than the price it’s going for at other stores! Shipping is free as well.

At the very end of Well.ca’s description of this pod, there is a very interesting note:

Note: Car seat not included.

I found this absolutely hilarious and it just made me wonder the kind of complaint that they may have received from a customer who didn’t receive their “expected” car seat. They’re probably just covering their bases to avoid any unhappy customers but it was still funny to read that note!

Summer is upon us and this is a winder pod but it would be perfect for all those of you who are currently expecting or know someone who is. A lot of parents switch from the bucket seat (pictured above) to the convertible car seat that always stay in the car early but a lot of bucket seats can actually be used until the baby is one year old or more. In fact, my car seat can hold up to 30 lbs and we’re still using it even though our baby is nearly one year old! The reason I mention is because even if you’re baby was recently born or is about to be born, then this cover could potentially be used this winter. Well.ca: 40% Off Blue Banana Urban Pod in Pink   Now Just $55 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Any baby sure to not get cold in this thing as it features ultra-soft sherpa fleece on the inside. It has a no slip back panel and a full zipper to keep baby in place. Interestingly enough, it also comes with a fully functional thermometer and a pacifier pouch. While the pacifier pouch definitely seems handy, I’m not so sure about the thermometer, but it’s still a cool feature.

As I already mentioned, the Blue Banana urban pod is significantly more expensive at other stores:

Kido Baby Canada: Leander High Chair Was $330 | Now $200 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 9, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Kido Baby Canada: Leander High Chair Was $330 | Now $200 & Free Shipping

This chair is super cool! Want a high chair that will convert to a toddler chair, a preschooler chair, to a big kid chair and to an adult chair? Do you want a high chair for your baby that fits in with your modern and adult style? This may be the chair for you! Kido Baby is selling this chair for only $199.99, with a regular price of $329.99. They also offer free shipping on $50.

I found this store while searching Google for price comparisons on a few other items I was thinking of telling you Moosers about. In the end, this deal won out, as this is a fabulous product, now $130 off and the best price around anywhere.

This chair has it all. First, it is a springy-type chair, so kids can bounce around in it. This means that when you need them to sit in their chair for a prolonged time (family dinner, making dinner, sidestepping a mommy breakdown), they can sit there while still being able to move around a bit. Second, the chair is very adjustable, with the back, footstep, and the chair in general adjusting to meet the needs of your child.

I also like that if needed, you can convert this to an adult chair. Paying $200 for a high chair and only using it for a few years can be depressing, but this chair can last for many years, because of this innovative design.

It is made from European Beech and has a simple design and colour scheme. You can get the chair in black, cherry or natural. You can also get cushions, sold separately, for your chair.

Here is how it is priced at other Canadian stores:

I don’t know what the shipping policies are at those stores, so I don’t even know if shipping fees will also be added on those prices. Either way, this price at Kido Baby far beats those prices on this chair.

Toys R Us Canada: $30 Off Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Ultimate Playard – Now $80 & FS!

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 7:40 PM

Toys R Us Canada: $30 Off Summer Infant Pop n Play Ultimate Playard   Now $80 & FS!

Toys R Us has a great deal right now on the Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Ultimate Playard. Originally priced at $109.99, it’s now on sale for just $79.97. Shipping is also free.

My baby is nearly one year old and a couple of months ago, I got hera superyard to contain her in the living room. At the time, I deliberated between the North States Superyard XT gate, which is now on sale for $124.99 and the Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play ultimate playard, which I’m featuring in this post.

The only reason I got the North States one is because with two cats, I was too scared that the water resistant floor would get torn up to shreds. Otherwise, I would have definitely gone with the Summer Infant playard as it’s lightweight and can easily be transported around.

The one I got is great but it’s very clunky and there is no way to easily transport it. The Summer Infant though is 35″ tall and weighs a total of 12lbs, which is hardly anything for a superyard!

It’s great for babies as young as 6 months and as old as 24 months and the best part is that it can be used either indoors or outdoors. I have to admit that I’m very tempted to get it to use outside in the backyard as it has a removable canopy that is advertised as blocking 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays.

In fact, at Sears, this same play yard is currently on sale for $87.99.

Out of two reviews, there is a total of 5/5 stars. Here’s one of these reviews:

We use the play yard when going to the beach….i have a 9 month old grandson that loves to put thing in his mouth and this keep the sand out (lol)….i also use it in the back yard for some vitamin D time. He just loves it…lots of room to crawl around

As I already mentioned, shipping is also free but keep in mind that if you add anything else to your cart, then a shipping fee might get tacked on. The more you add to your cart, the less of a shipping discount you typically get but you can always split your order as Toys R Us usually ships orders over $25 for free.

Today Only: Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Baby Monitor Was $270 | Now $150 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 8:17 AM

Today Only: Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Baby Monitor Was $270 | Now $150 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

If there is a baby in your future, you may want to jump on this deal. Today only Best Buy Canada is offering the Summer Infant Baby Touch 2.0 Video monitor as the deal of the day. This monitor was $270 but is now only $149.99. This order also qualifies you for free shipping.

A video baby monitor is something I very naively thought when I was pregnant was unnecessary. For a smaller home, I assumed you are going to hear the baby cry through an audio monitor and that would work fine. What I did not anticipate is constantly wondering if I should check on the baby every time I heard any sound over the audio monitor. A friend gifted us her video monitor that she no longer needed and I was sold. The monitor made it so much easier to tell whether I needed to head back into the baby’s room or not. Whenever I have my second child, a video monitor has moved much higher on the list of kid gear I want in our house.

Features

You can get your own video monitor and save yourself from my mistakes. This Summer Infant brand monitor is the 2.0 model and is equipped with a three and a half inch high resolution screen that will show you your child in day or night time. You can also talk back and forth through the monitor with another person, a handy feature when there is a diaper explosion. This is an expandable monitor system, so you can purchase more and add them to monitor more than one child’s room. There is a one-year manufacturer warranty on parts only.

Price Comparison

I priced compared this model around the web to see what the competition had to offer and here is what I found. If you were to pick up this same monitor @ Walmart.ca  you will pay $239.97. Snugglebugz.ca specializes in baby items and gear, and has this monitor priced at $269.99. Sears Canada has a comparable Summer brand monitor that looks to be the first generation of this model for $239.99.

Reviews

The one review on this monitor on Best Buy is a bit tricky. It appears the reviewer had trouble with the website and rated it three stars even though she really intended to rate it four and a half. Here is that review:

Today Only: Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Baby Monitor Was $270 | Now $150 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

This monitor is a great price today. If I had another kid on the horizon, I would snag one for myself. Shipping will be free on this unit as it more than meets the minimum of $25 to qualify for free shipping. The daily deals at Best Buy have not been lasting all day lately when they are hot, so you may want to snag yours now.

Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 9:10 AM

Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

A playard is pretty much a must-have with a baby and toddler. It seems they’ve changed the name from play pen, maybe because that sounded a little restrictive for the child. Right now, Toys R Us has the Chicco Lullaby playard on sale for $199.98, with a regular price of $269.99. On top of that, they have a buy one, get one 50% off on all clearance items, including this one. There is a limit of one per customer on this playard, so you can’t buy two and get the second 50% off, but you can see what other items you might need from the clearance section for 50% off.

If you are a new parent, you might think a playard is a frivolous item, but you would not be correct. I loved having mine on the main floor, where I used it for diaper changes, naps when I wanted to be around the baby, and eventually to keep him safe while I did a few things and he wanted to crawl up the bookshelves. Obviously, you don’t want to keep baby in the playard all day, but there are many instances (like whn you have to cook dinner) when you need him/her safe and contained.

A playard is also important for when you’ll be going on road trips and want to make sure your baby is sleeping safely. You really can’t count on those hotel cribs. We also took ours camping so my baby wasn’t crawling around in the dirt all the time.

This playard is a lot more deluxe than the one I had ten years ago and mine was considered deluxe then. It has an incorporated elevated bassinet and change table. There are toys that go with the bassinet or can be taken off to use as a play mat. It also has added features like music, vibration and a nightlight. I also like that it has a push-button folding mechanism before for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to get my playard down and back up again. It also has wheels so you can cart it around very easily.

When I researched around, I found this playard selling for $280 at Snugglebugz.

For your second item, I’d suggest another high-priced item, like the high chairs or strollers on sale. When I added the BabyHome Eat high chair to my cart, it came down to $84.99, from a regular price of $189.98.

Shipping for these large items won’t be free, but you’ll get a $10 discount and for both items, I had shipping at a total of $13 in my cart.

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Having a new baby or know someone who is? This deal from Best Buy is perfect for any new parent who needs this important staple for the nursery. Get the Sealy Baby posturpedic crib mattress from Best Buy, with a regular price of $169.99, now only $99.99 and free shipping.

I actually know a few people having a new baby. One friend is having her first, another her fifth. Either way, both need a new crib mattress for the new crib. I think this is a great deal and I’m going to stress the importance of getting a high quality mattress for baby. The first reason is that you want your baby to be comfortable. I bought a mattress once at Walmart super cheap and it showed. There was a spring sticking into my poor little man’s back, so we got him a new one. The second reason is that you want baby to sleep in his/her crib, so you want it to be as comfortable as possible. Sealy is a popular brand name in mattresses, so you know you are going to get quality.

This mattress has even won awards, which says a lot! It has a coil system that adapts to the movements of your baby with firm support. You want firm support, especially in the early months, as baby can’t really lift his/her head and you don’t want their face squished into the mattress. But, saying that, this mattress is also plush for comfort.

It is Greenguard certified, which means that it has low chemical emissions. New babies are like sponges from their environment, so this is a nice feature, but I’d also suggest setting up the mattress a few months in advance so it off-gases before baby sleeps there.

There are good reviews and one that seems like the reviewer got a defective mattress.

The previous week my daughter was waking up every day around 11 pm, crying. When we changed the mattress she woke up for a little bit the first night, but she stopped doing that. I don’t know if the mattress made any difference, I just know she needed something firm with more support.

I shopped around and found this is the best deal around. Snugglebugz sells this mattress for $190. Toys R Us sells it for $170.

Best Buy offers free shipping on $25, so this item will also come straight to your door without extra fees.

In-Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes – Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

No joke, I had been waiting for Huggies wipes to go on sale at Costco for a couple of months now and I’m so happy to see that they’re $6 off again that I’m probably going to buy 5 boxes! Usually priced at $26.49, you can get a box of 1,160 Huggies Natural Care Plus wipes on sale for just $20.49. This offer is only in-stores.

Apparently these wipes went on sale in February but I have to admit that I missed that sale. Last time I saw these wipes get reduced by $6 last summer, if I remember correctly, and at that time, hubby thought I was crazy for getting 6 boxes. Luckily, my hoarding paid off because not only did we not have to worry about getting more wipes for more than half a year but we also saved $36! Every penny counts when you have a baby, especially a newborn. In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Do keep in mind that this offer in-stores only and you need to be a Costco member to take advantage of it. If you’re not a member, then you could always go with someone who is as any member is allowed to bring one non-member guest.

In a fit of desperation for more wipes, I bought that Kirkland Signature Tencel baby wipes that were discounted by $4.50, down to $23.49. Reading reviews online convinced me to get them but even discounted, it wasn’t as good of a deal as the reduced in priced Huggies ones.

Here’s a quick price comparison of the prices for each box:

  • 1,160 Huggies wipes @ $20.49 = $0.018
  • 900 Kirkland wipes @ $23.49 = $0.026 per wipe

So not only are the Huggies boxes a significantly better deal over the Kirkland ones but I also prefer them. The Huggies ones never dried out, while the Kirkland seem to quickly lose their wetness if the bag happens to be left open accidentally. I like that the Kirkland wipes are softer to the touch but since they’re slightly bigger than the Huggies ones, it made me wonder if maybe that was the reason for there being less wipes per box (900 instead of 1,160 or more).

Both brands are great but from a budget standpoint, there really isn’t any arguing with which brand is the most economical one. I believe that most Costco warehouses also currently has Frozen-themed boxes of Huggies wipes, which could be exciting if you have other kids who are currently obsessed with this Disney movie.

Roots Canada Promo Code: B1G1 Baby & Kids Clothes

Posted by on March 18, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Roots Canada Promo Code: B1G1 Baby & Kids Clothes

Roots coupon codes are so rarely released nowadays that I thought I would let you know of their newest one: right now, you can use the code below to take advantage of a “buy one, get one 50% off” deal on all baby, kids or toddler merchandise.

Click here to shop for kids clothes @ Roots.com now

  • Coupon Code: MARCHBOGO
  • Discount: BOGO on all regularly-priced kids clothes
  • Expires: 23rd March 2015

Just like Joe Fresh, Roots Canada is one of those brands of clothing that is super comfy and long-lasting. With regards to kids’ clothing, you don’t necessarily need it to be long-lasting as they grow out of it so quick but if you’re hoping to have more kids or have someone else to pass it on to, then Roots is definitely one of those brands that is worth investing into, especially when you can take advantage of promotions like these.

I suspect that my daughter is still too little for the Irene full zip hoody but I’m thinking of getting it for her for later on as it’s just too adorable looking. Priced at $34, it features a drawstring at the waist and what I love it the most is that it’s 80% cotton, which means that it’s sure to be warm and long-lasting for sure.

Plus, they would match with the Irene sweatpant priced at $24. Both of these items come in a “dusty pink colour”. If you were to get both in one order, then the pants would drop down to just $12.50.

Now, the Roots coupon above won’t apply to already reduced merchandise but it’s worth checking out that section anyways as everything has currently been reduced by an additional 20%. Keep in mind that the prices you see in the sale section are the final ones and that they all of these items will be further discounted at checkout.

The Bridget check shirt for boys, for instance, was originally $44, is currently on sale for $21.87 and further drops down to just $17.50. It’s a red and black checkered shirt made entirely from cotton. It looks more of a winter kind of shirt to wear, so if you have a little boy, then you could get it for him to grow into for next winter.

Shipping is free on orders over $50.
