Claire’s Canada: $2.50 Lunch Totes

Posted by on October 2, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Claires Canada: $2.50 Lunch Totes

Claire’s has a really hot deal going on right now. First of all, they’ve reduced all of their lunch totes down to $3 from the original price of $18.25. Second, they have a sitewide sale going on with 20% off everything on their site, which will discount in your cart. This means the lunch totes will reduce right down to $2.40!

As we enter the first week of October, I take a sniff of the lunch bags I’ve got my kids and wow, do they ever stink already! The reason is obvious – they have to bring home all of their garbage, and this includes half-eaten yogurt containers. I love the smell of rotten milk! Before you say I should switch to a litterless container, I tried that last year and they came home, lids off, yogurt still everywhere. I can’t say my kids should go without yogurt, as I think its a very important food they should eat daily. My only other choice is to grab them another tote. During this sale at Claire’s I could really stock up and not spend very much at all! Unfortunately, Claire’s is a girl’s store so my boys will have to miss out on this hot deal.

If I had a little girl, I’d absolutely have to get her this sequin star print tote. It comes in blue or pink and although I have three boys, I’d still get my girl blue as its super cute!

If you are in need of a new backpack, lets say to carry around dance gear, soccer gear or for sleepovers, you’d be in luck too. These are also discounted, now down to $10 from $32, but after coupon they come to $8. They have the matching sequin star print backpack to go with the tote, if her little heart desires.

The only drawback to this deal is that shipping is a flat rate of $11.95 an order, no matter what you buy. I suggest you stock up on what you need all at once. The discount on the backpack alone covers the shipping costs.

My Cents of Style: Nautical Backpack Only $9

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 10:00 AM

My Cents of Style: Nautical Backpack Only $9

My Cents of Style has introduced a new deal section called Style Steals. They will feature one hot product on Monday and Wednesday with a significant discount. Today’s deal is on a nautical backpack, which was $45.95, now $8.95. Shipping will cost you $5, and it does ship from the U.S., but you won’t encounter any duties or fees with your total being under $20. Note all prices are USD.

I’m loving this backpack! This is a fairly large backpack that can take you to the beach, on errands as a purse, you could use it as a diaper bag, an overnight bag or even to tote around your groceries. I love the style of it with the nautical stripes and the rope straps that are also adjustable.

You are able to choose from a variety of colours. These are: black, navy blue, red, turquoise, green, pink and purple. I think I want to get two! I love the black and white for a simple style, but the turquoise is very beach-y. There is also a front pocket, where you can put your phone, wallet or other items you’d like to access easily.

It says this bag can’t carry heavy loads, but it looks very durable to me. I will be taking a trip south soon (fingers crossed) and this bag would do perfect to carry my sunscreen, book for the beach and my towel. The black and white is also unisex enough for my husband to carry his own items in.

Of course I also had to peruse what other deals are available on site and found these colourful print sunglasses that are on clearance for only $5.95. I could get the bag and the sunglasses and still be under the amount for duty and only pay that one shipping fee. I just don’t know what style to choose as they are all very cute! There are quite a few low-priced clearance items if you were also interested.

Sportchek Canada: Duffel Bags & Backpacks BOGO 50% Off

Posted by on August 13, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Sportchek Canada: Duffel Bags & Backpacks BOGO 50% Off

Sportchek often has buy one, get one 50% offers and this week it is on duffle bags and packs, which is perfect timing, really. They also have a spend and get event going on, where if you spend $100, you’ll get a $20 gift card for next time or if you spend $250, you’ll get a $50 gift card.

With back to school also comes the start of sports activities, at least in my family anyways. I did have one kid in soccer for a month, but generally, we took the summer off of organized sports. Now with fall approaching, I’m signing my kids up for swimming, karate, trampoline school and maybe hockey. I’m going to need a bag or bags to carry around all of their gear. I am also starting back in at the gym, where I plan to start swimming regularly. I am also going to need a gear bag for my runners, swimming attire and my clothing for after my shower.

I’m loving this Nike Team Training Max Air small duffel sports bag. My favourite is the grey, but if I got myself that colour, I’d get my husband the green, so we don’t get our gear mixed up. I’m sure my husband wouldn’t want to find my bikini when he’s looking for his runners. The green is $59.99 and the grey is $49.99, but by buying both I’ll pay only $24.99 for my bag instead of $109.98 for both.

Although, this Under Armour studio bag for women is quite sexy and it might be more up my alley. It even includes a removable laundry bag for all my wet gear. This one is a little pricey at $149.99, but if a friend wanted the same one, we could get two for $224.98, saving $75!

There are also a number of backpacks from all the top names like Under Armour, Oakley and Roxy, so check out the large selection.

Shipping is free when you spend over $99, so keep that in mind while doing your shopping.

Altitude Sports Canada: Free Shipping & Returns On Bags

Posted by on July 22, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Altitude Sports Canada: Free Shipping & Returns On Bags

It is that time we all dread, time to start back to school shopping! Kids hate it because, you know, they have to go back to school. Parents hate it, because they have to take out their wallets and buy their kids all the latest in clothing, footwear and other back to school items. One of the most important items for back to school is a bag. You want your kid to keep their stuff safe while they go back and forth to school, and they want to look good doing it. Altitude Sports is offering free shipping on all bags right now. Regularly, you’d get free shipping on orders over $49, so this is nice because you might not want a bag over $50 and you don’t want to pay shipping for it.

While there are a number of bags in the school bag section for over $50 and some even over $100, you can get some that are less than $40. I wouldn’t spend over $50 to outfit my child with a backpack, especially since I have three boys, unless they were climbing a mountain, which they aren’t.

This The North Face Jester bag is on sale, which means you get a sale on top of a sale, which I love. It was $64.99, now only $45.49. This is a really high-quality bag with features galore like bungee cords for carrying coats or sports equipment and internal organization slots. It also has excellent reviews.

As a child, I loved pink accessories. I would have loved this bright pink JanSport overexposed backpack. It is just a simple bag with padded straps and there are lots of other hot colours for both boys and girls. It is priced at $34.99 and it will ship for free.

Travel bags are also shipping free, so you might want to take a look at what’s on offer in this section.

Returns are also free, so if you decide the bag isn’t the right one for you, send it back with no charge. Don’t forget to add any coupon codes you can to make your order even that much more sweeter.

Pursebox Canada: Cutest Coin Purse Only $14

Posted by on July 11, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Pursebox Canada: Cutest Coin Purse Only $14

I blogged about Purse Box recently and decided after that to try out the cutest coin purse. If I had waited, I would have gotten it for $14, rather than the regular price of $19. This discount is part of PurseBox’s mid-summer sale, which has up to 50% off a number of styles.

I really, truly love my cutest little coin purse. I can see myself using this for years. I love the lipstick red colour that I got, which is more deep red than a bright one, which means it stands out, but still accessorizes perfectly. If red isn’t your thing, there is black, white, pink, green and more. Your discount will appear in the cart, so don’t worry if you see the regular price there.

Of course, since they have this mid-summer sale on, I had to see if my coin purse wanted a friend. The Amazon clutch caught my eye, as it is now 50% off and I love the tan colour. It will perfectly fit your night-time essentials and add a statement to your classic black outfit. It was $99, but now only $49.

The European satchel, while only $30 off is such a gorgeous addition to any lady’s wardrobe. The styling and the bright caramel colour give the impression of sophistication. This reminds me of something a proper English lady might carry on the train, on a visit to Grandmother. While that might not be your purpose, every woman needs a proper purse for those days they need to feel important (job interviews, first dates, etc.). Too bad the ruby red is sold out! This purse was $129, now $99.

Pursebox offers free shipping on orders over $99, so if you are getting a purse and need a boost to get you to that free shipping limit, the cutest coin purse can definitely give you a boost. They also have free returns if your bag just isn’t what you expected it to be.

Future Shop Canada: Samsonite Leather Zip Top Business Bag Save $94 – Now $135

Posted by on July 8, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Future Shop Canada: Samsonite Leather Zip Top Business Bag Save $94   Now $135

If you are looking for a sexy bag to take to the office, Future Shop has a hot deal on one. The Samsonite leather top zip business bag is now $94 off, with a regular price of $229.98 and a sale price now of $135.98. This item will also ship for free since it is over the $20 free shipping threshold.

I’m actually highly considering getting this bag for myself. I recently took on a new role here at Bargainmoose, and that may involve some travel. Putting my laptop in my purse just isn’t going to cut it anymore. I want to look good and have a functional bag at the same time. What really caught my eye about the bag is that it has a SmartStrap, which lets me attach is securely to the handle of my suitcase. When I was travelling before, I had put the laptop right into my carry-on, which was a huge pain in the butt at airport security, having to open my carry-on in front of everyone and wrestle my laptop out, then put it back in. With a separate bag like this one, I could just put my purse inside of it, with my laptop and make going through security so much easier. It is hard enough getting my shoes back on, never mind having to fumble with my underwear covering my laptop.

This bag looks to be part of a larger Samsonite sale going on at Future Shop. I see quite a few bags already sold out, as Samsonite is a solid brand in bags, but there are still a few deals to be had.

There is one bag remaining for this Samsonite Boston 20″ bag, which is a great overnight bag at a good price. Regularly $119.99, you’ll now get it at a very low price of only $59.99. That’s a hot savings!

Another hot deal I found was on the Samsonite travel equipment backpack in purple. This backpack is perfect for back to school, which will be here before you know it. You’ll save $25 and spend only $19.99.

iSkin Canada: Razor Back 13 Only $48 (Was $120)

Posted by on June 19, 2014 at 9:00 AM

iSkin Canada: Razor Back 13 Only $48 (Was $120)

I found this fantastic bag at iSkin, which is not a traditional backpack, but simply a Razor Back. It was $120, but now only $48! This price is in U.S. dollars, but iSkin does ship from Canada, so no need to worry about duties and fees.

Unfortunately, although there are a couple of coupon codes for iSkin out, you can’t use them. In fact, I suggest not using them because sale items go to full price and the discount is taken off of that. So while this bag is only $48 right now, if you add a coupon code to it, the price goes up to $84! You really have to watch for that.

This bag is meant for transporting your 13″ MacBook or your iPad or other mobile devices in style. It really is not too early to shop for next year’s back to school. Summer ends in a snap and you really don’t want to waste your time finding a bag while the weather is hot. It also has compartmental pockets for all sorts of goody storage.

If you need something a little larger for your 15″ laptop, the Razor Back 15 is also on sale, with a regular price of $150, but you’ll take it home for only $60.

I’m totally eying up the Jimmy, which is almost the perfect weekender bag. It is so cute and I love the colour. I wouldn’t have paid $260 for Jimmy, but $104 is definitely a small hit in my budget for this bag. Mini Jimmy is also too cute, and a steal at $72 from $180.

These bags are part of the Q.West collection by iSkin, and it is definitely a fashionable collection worth checking out! The link above won’t take you straight to the bags so click to go to Q. West to see the deals.

Use the coupon code FREESHIP to get your order shipped to you for free!

Kate Spade (U.S.): Shoulder Bags Only $99 (Was $250)

Posted by on June 10, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Kate Spade (U.S.): Shoulder Bags Only $99 (Was $250)

Kate Spade is having a surprise sale with up to 75% off all travel related items. I found some awesome shoulder bags on sale for only $99, with a regular price of $248!

While at first you might think $99 is a lot to pay for a bag, you need to see these bags. They are large bags that would fit all you would probably need for an entire weekend, they are great quality with materials like canvas and vegetable tanned leather and cowhide, they have gold plated hardware and custom woven linings. Plus, they look so amazing.

I really need a new weekender bag, as I often take short trips and I want something durable, functional and fashionable. I am in love with this play hooky bag as I’d really love to do that this week, with the hot weather calling me outside and I’m sitting here on my computer (sorry boss!).

If wording is not your thing, check out this south of the border harmony bag with a beautiful exterior pattern. This bag is not lined and made from grainy vinyl.

There are other types of bags on sale as well, during this sale, like this cobble hill travel leslie. This could also work as a weekender bag as it is quite large. I love the simplicity of it and the beautiful soft pebbled cowhide. This bag is a real steal with an original price of $648 and it is now $229, saving you over $400!

While this sale is on “travel items”, there is also a section for “essentials to pack“, which includes clothing and other items you’d need on a trip away.

Shipping to Canada is a flat rate of $10 and all prices are in USD. You may encounter duties and other fees being that it does ship from the United States.

Grafic Canada: DSquared2 Dean Duffle Bag Only $296 (Was $985)

Grafic Canada: DSquared2 Dean Duffle Bag Only $296 (Was $985)

If you love you some designer duds and are looking for a beautiful new duffle bag, you must take a look at this DSquared2 Dean duffle bag, which is now only $296, was $985, saving you almost $700!

I tried to find this bag at other retailers in Canada, but came up short for this exact bag. I did find other DSquared2 duffle bags and they were pricey, not even coming close to the low cost of this bag.

Made in Italy, this bag could be your go-to bag for overnights, long days at the office, or even for the gym if you so choose. It has a leather base, double leather handles and leather trim, but the bag itself is made from nylon. It is an oversize bag with all the trimmings like silver hardware and stud bumpers at the base.

The bag measures 20″ x 14″ x 8.5″ inches and has a two-way zippered main opening.

Here is what I read about this fabulous bag on FarFetch, where the bag is out of stock:

Canadian twins Dean and Dan Caten bring a flamboyant side to the Milan fashion scene with DSQUARED2’s audacious catwalk shows (think supermodels in a pink jumbo jet). The collections follow suit: unapologetically glamorous fun with immaculate tailoring.

Grafic will ship this bag for free as it surpasses the $100 threshold for free shipping. If this is your first purchase at Grafic, you can also get an additional $15 off, making this bag only $281, with promo code.

Amazon Canada: High Sierra Backpacks 50% Off

Amazon Canada: High Sierra Backpacks 50% Off

Amazon has a huge assortment of High Sierra backpacks, sport bags, carry-ons and more on sale right now for 50% off.

Typically, you’d go back to school shopping in August or even September, but then you’d pay full price for every single thing. Why not shop now for next year’s backpacks and save yourself 50% and get a high-quality pack in the meantime?

The packs all have amazing reviews, mainly because it fits a lot of stuff, is durable (so it can take your or your kid’s abuse) and has lots of pockets and zippers so you can organize everything.

The ones that are 50% off or more include:

  • Berserk backpack (19x12x8 inches) in red/orange or jade/teal – was $80, now $40
  • Loop backpack (19x13x8.5 inches) in feather rainbow – was $70, now $35
  • Mugsy backpack (17×12.75×7.5) in your choice of four patterns – was $50, now $25

As you can see, there are differing price points, depending on your needs. Obviously your young child won’t need the biggest bag and the university student won’t be able to use the smallest. I like the choices available.

This pack-n-go duffel garden bag is both a backpack and a duffel bag, which means it is the perfect travel bag. It was $100, now $50.

Shipping will be free on any order over $25.

Chapters Canada: Up To 50% Off Lunch Gear

Take a look at your kid’s lunch bags. How about a sniff? Right about now I bet the bags are getting a little tattered, a little ripe and just a little nasty. I know mine were, so I got them some new ones because I know I didn’t want to eat my lunch out of that everyday. I washed them in the washing machine, but that really didn’t seem to work out the best. If you need a new lunch bag for your kid, Chapters has select ones on for up to 50% off.

Their styles are all super-cute too, but I think they are better for the younger kids. Owls are the total rage right now and for good reason, owls are awesome! This Zippee lunch tote is actually only 30% off but what little girl doesn’t want to see this sweet owl with hearts each day and be reminded of home? Was $24.95, now $17.50. If you want matching accessories to go with this bag, check out the flip and sip for only $11.43, was $22.95. The covered bowl gift set is perfect for packing those homemade meals for her at daycare or school. Was $26.95, now $13.28.

If owls are not your thing, check out retro robots, hungry monsters or the vintage alphabet (my favourite), all varying prices as low as $10.

Shipping is free once you’ve spent $25, so I suggest getting the bag and some accessories for packing the food.

Best Buy Canada: Ju Ju Be Messenger Diaper Bags Only $60 ($100 Off)

Posted by on January 20, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Best Buy Canada: Ju Ju Be Messenger Diaper Bags Only $60 ($100 Off)

Best Buy has a fantastic deal on Ju Ju Be diapers bags, now $100 and selling for only $59.99.

Ju Ju Be diaper bags are well worth the money you pay for them. These bags are durable, trendy and very functional. Full of pockets for everything you need and so many features, they are impossible to count. The anti-microbial lining keeps germs from growing inside your bag and the crumb drains let crumbs drain from the inside of the bag! The Teflon coating means sticking stains won’t stick either. So, no crumbs, no stains, no germs – too bad they couldn’t make kids this way!

Some luxury features include a picture pocket so you can show off your little dirt eater, a mommy pocket with an extra-long key clip, because there is nothing worse than juggling a baby and a diaper bag with your keys at the bottom of it. The mommy pocket also includes a cosmetics pouch and a sunglasses case. The adjustable shoulder pad has memory foam and grippy underneath so it doesn’t slide off your shoulder every 30 seconds. I’m starting to realize this bag has my patience in mind. They even thought of magnet, quiet closures because you know that everything, and I mean everything, wakes up that sleeping baby. If you are worried that a bag this good can’t be thrown in the washing machine, you’d be happily wrong.

I price compared this bag and they are definitely over $100 at other stores, so this is a fantastic deal. I love the patterns, although I don’t know which one I would choose.

Shipping is free on these bags.

Lululemon Canada: Everyday Gym Bag Only $79 (Was $158)

Lululemon Canada: Everyday Gym Bag Only $79 (Was $158)

I find the two most busiest times of the year at the gym are in January when everyone makes their New Year’s resolutions, and in September, when everyone gets back to being organized and the weather starts to get cool. I have to admit that I haven’t been to the gym all summer long and I am going to pay for it this week when I go back. If you are anything like me and need to get back on track and organized and need a bag to do it, Lululemon has the Everyday gym bag on for only $79, was $158.

This is technically a men’s bag, but I think it would work just as nicely for a woman. Besides, why the stereotypes? It’s just a bag. Being just a bag, this bag is pretty fantastic. It is very durable, made with coated canvas and meant to take a beating and eventually add that weathered look to it. The opening is super large, which makes it easy for packing and finding items at the bottom of the bag. The padded tablet pocket lets you take your tablet with you and not worry about it getting damaged. You can wear it with the removable shoulder strap or carry it with your hands. The wet/dry pouch lets your sweats stay sweaty, while your dry stuff stays dry (and not stinky). Your shoes will also stay in their proper place in a removable bag.

Not just a gym bag, you can use this as a carry-on bag for trips away, as it is the perfect size for airline requirements.

As always, Lululemon offers free shipping.
