Bargainmoose Contest: Win an HP Pavilion Convertible PC!

Bargainmoose Contest: Win an HP Pavilion Convertible PC!

**Contest closed. Winners is Rachelle!**

This last week we’ve been giving away a few prizes from HP. These contests have been very popular and I can’t wait to tell the lucky winners. This morning you are in luck again as I have the grand prize from HP – the HP Pavilion convertible PC, worth $529.99!

This baby is sweet as it can do so much. It is a notebook, but it can stand up like a tablet, as it moves around by 360 degrees! You can stand it up, sit it down, lay it down or tent it. It does more than my kids can!

It has an 11.6″ screen, Windows 8.1, 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive, dual speakers and lots of pre-installed software for you to enjoy.

I love how bendy this thing is, so you can really use it to its full capability. I wanted to do yoga the other day outside and had to lean my tablet on a plant, but this would be so much easier for me to see the class online!

While you are doing your back to school shopping, you might want to take advantage of the new exclusive coupon code we have for HP, which will get you $60 off 15″ laptops over $529! Use the coupon code BMOOSENB1560 to get your discount.

How to win this prize?

Answer the following question: Why do you need this convertible PC?

Happy 25,000th Post to Us!

I was just doing a little bit of admin work on site and I stumbled on this post that I wrote in 2011, congratulating us for reaching the 5,000 post mark. Well, I just glanced over at our post count and noticed that we’ve just passed the 25,000 mark! Wow!!

It’s been nearly 7 years of blogging for me and our Bargainmoose birthday will be in August. I will plan something fantastic as a birthday surprise at that time, giving some sweet and juicy prizes out to my lovely Moosers.

In the meantime, hit me up with a comment below and I’ll choose a random winner to win a $50 Amazon.ca gift card! Let me know what your favourite deal of all time was, on Bargainmoose. (Contest closed, winner added soon)

Bargainmoose Contest: Win a $100 Credit For WagJag & Exclusive $5 Off $20 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 19, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Bargainmoose Contest: Win a $100 Credit For WagJag & Exclusive $5 Off $20 (EXPIRED)

WagJag seems to be having some hot deals lately and it seems like all of the Moosers are taking good advantage of these hot deals! For example, we posted this deal for Canada’s Wonderland and it went wild! I even had friends asking me why I hadn’t personally messaged them about it before it expired. Since everyone loves them so much, we are going to give one lucky winner $100 in credit for WagJag.

We’ve also got some great news for you if you want to buy some of their hot deals – an exclusive coupon code for $5 off every $20+ order!

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE5
  • Discount: $5 off $20+
  • Expiry: 31st July 2015

You can use that exclusive for whatever works for you. I think a really sweet deal just in time for Father’s Day are these tickets to the 2015 RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey. Rather than $57 for one ticket plus a hat, you’ll pay only $52.

If you like Canadian Tire (they are personally on my banned stores list) and like to BBQ, you might like two propane fill-ups plus a one-time five cents per litre deduction on your gas fillup. Worth $40.68, WagJag is selling it for $29.38, which is $24.38 after coupon. You are basically getting the second propane fill free!

I’m personally checking out the family deals, so I can find lots of activities for my kids to do this summer at a discount. I see quite a few deals valid for Niagara Falls, which is somewhere we visit every summer.

How to win this prize?

Answer the following question: What WagJag deals would you get with a $100 credit?

Bargainmoose Contest: Win $100 To Spend @ BirchBox

Bargainmoose Contest: Win $100 To Spend @ BirchBox

*** Contest now closed, winner was Bargainmooser Shelley! ***

Birchbox is pretty cool. If you love trying new beauty products, but don’t really know where to start with how much selection there is out there (hello, Sephora is beauty overload!), BirchBox is a great place to go. You can subscribe to the boxes to receive five full-sized beauty samples every month. What you do with these samples is up to you – use them, give them away or hate them – but at least you are trying them and you’ll know if this is the product for you. I bet that you’ll find a few that you will start to use religiously and thank your lucky stars for Birchbox.

You can also buy items from their site individually, including kits and gift ideas. We’ve got all the latest coupon codes for BirchBox up in the forum, and they sometimes offer free shipping, percentages off, extra points and more.

I am a big Benefit supporter and this It’s Potent eye cream looks like just what I need after 9 years of sleepless nights. It is only $40 but includes free shipping, which is sweet because usually you need to spend $70+ to get free shipping.

I would also love to try one of their subscription boxes, because I love getting packages in the mail, especially when it is clothing or beauty products! If you’ve got a sister, mom or friend who might need a pick-me-up, this would definitely cheer any lady up.

Bargainmoose Contest: Win $200 to Spend @ Live Out There Canada! (Contest Closed)

**Contest closed. Winner to be notified soon!**

Live Out There is a Canadian store that caters to the outdoors, with apparel and gear for men and women with all the top brands. We here at Bargainmoose love giving stuff away, so this week we’ve got $200 for you to spend at Live Out There, if you win this contest.

What’s also great about Live Out There besides being Canadian, is that they offer free shipping and free returns. If something doesn’t fit or isn’t what you expected, you can return it with no cost at all to you. I also love the very stocked sale section at Live Out There.

They don’t currently have any coupons out, but they do have a promotion for a free Mountain Hardware chiller ball cap with your $150 purchase of Mountain Hardware. The cap is worth $30 and if you’re already planning on buying a bunch from Mountain Hardware, you might as well be rewarded as well.

Live Out There’s deal of the day (which is on for the next nine days), is on this Pacsafe Toursafe 25 travel bag. Regularly $274.99, it is on sale for $149.99. I priced around and found that I couldn’t get this bag for less than $200 anywhere in Canada or the U.S., so this is a hot deal. If you are travelling somewhere that theft of your goods is a problem, this bag will keep you protected with puncture resistant material.

TurboTax Contest: Win 1 of 10 Copies of TurboTax! (CONTEST CLOSED)

Tax season is in full swing and with it comes this contest for you to win one of ten copies of TurboTax.

I’ve already done and filed my taxes and got my return, but I know there are a lot of people who wait until the very last minute to file. This contest is for you! I actually had to pay taxes being self-employed and not remitting all year, but my husband paid too much and got a refund. What did we do with his refund? We paid my taxes! We did have a bit left over and to tell you the truth, I can’t even remember what we used it for!

Did you know that there are deductions for your kid’s activities that you can claim? If they do sports or art programs, those are all tax deductible. Did you also know you can claim medical expenses that weren’t covered? You can also claim child care if you worked and needed care for your child. All of these small deductions can really add up.

If you want to file before the contest is over, you can use this exclusive link to get yourself 17% off your copy of TurboTax.

Bargainmoose Contest: Win 1 of 10 Copies of TurboTax! (Closed)

It is officially tax season and if you are anything like me, you’ve been feverishly collecting all your receipts and other tax forms and trying to figure out if you owe or if you’ll get that coveted refund. I actually just filed my taxes and to my great surprise, I am getting a refund. Honestly, I don’t believe I would have gotten as great of a refund if it weren’t for TurboTax. Their software makes it so simple to know what I need to enter and gives me ideas of deductions I may not have thought of. I loved watching that refund meter, although at first it had us getting an amazing refund, took it away, but in the end when I was done, I got the right amount back. I also like that you can change the numbers as you need (say if you get a form you forgot about it or if you wanted to see if what refund you’d get if you upped your RRSP contribution for the year).

My husband was intent on getting an accountant this year, but I feel like the hard part of doing your tax return is getting all your paperwork together! Entering the information is so easy with TurboTax and I even own my own small business.

So, to celebrate this fun time of year, TurboTax is giving away 10 copies of their software to our readers. Did you know you can enter all of your information before you have to pay? That way you’ll actually know what your refund is (or what you owe) before you pay. When you decide to file, then you can enter in your payment information or hopefully for ten of you, your code for a free copy!

If you are anxious to file, you can use this exclusive link to get yourself 17% off your copy of TurboTax.

Bargainmoose Contest: Win 1 of 5 Murad Acne Starter Kits (Contest Closed)

Bargainmoose Contest: Win 1 of 5 Murad Acne Starter Kits (Contest Closed)

** Contest Closed – Winners are Kathie, Irene, Nancy, Scott and Anita!**

Acne – not just a problem of the young – we all get it! As I march into my 40s I still get the occasional lump or bump, plus some blackheads and large pores. It is just not fair! While it isn’t as horrible as it was in my youth, sometimes I do wish there was a magic product that could take it all away.

Murad has graciously offered to give five of our readers a chance to win an Acne Starter Kit that includes the clarifying cleanser, acne clearing solution, clarifying mask, oil control mattifier plus a few extras – a cosmetic bag, toner and acne spot treatment. This kit is worth $50, although you can buy it without the extras on their site for $29.95.

Mooser Brooke tried this kit out for herself and said:

The first few days I used it, I loved it. I noticed instant results and even still I have way less acne. For sensitive skins I wouldn’t suggest using the mask too often – I used it two days in a row and it really dried out my face. Mainly beside my eyes and my chin. When I don’t use the mask I love the results. It rinses off easy and doesn’t burn when I get it close to my eyes like other products have done. I would suggest it for oily skin types, but maybe not if you have dry skin and acne.

If you see something you like at Murad while you’re browsing their site, always check the forum for current Murad Canada coupon codes, like the one we’ve got up right now that will get you a free gift with purchase.

How to win this prize?

Purdy’s Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine (CLOSED)

Purdys Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine (CLOSED)

* Contest now closed, winner is Piroska! *

What would I do with $250 in Purdy’s chocolate? I would eat it of course! I don’t even know if I would share it. I can speak from experience as I had three boxes at Christmas and I told my kids they couldn’t have any. It was just too good to let children eat it – they are happy with chocolate from the dollar store! Me, on the other hand, I like the good stuff and Purdy’s is my absolute favourite chocolate in the world. In fact, my mom got each of the kids Purdy’s lollipops, which I have had stored in my desk for when they are truly good and deserve a treat, and confession time, I ate one yesterday myself. This chocolate is irresistible.

I wish I could find a way to win this contest, but unfortunately, I can’t. But, all of our loyal Moosers have a chance to win $250 of your choice of chocolate from Purdy’s.

If I had my choice of $250 in Purdy’s chocolate, I’d choose:

the Almost Perfect box – a box of imperfect chocolates because even though its not perfect, I bet its an amazing 3lbs of chocolate ($39.95)

the Himalayan pink salt caramels - these are my absolute favourite and the combination of sweet and salty is so to die for ($19). I’d probably get myself five boxes of these.

Hedgehogs – I might be nice and get these for my kids, or they can have maybe one ($30 for 20pcs). These are so smooth in your mouth!

Sweet Georgia Browns – My mom would crucify me if I didn’t get her a box of these, as they are her absolute favourite. These are like turtles but a million times better. ($17)

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, we can’t forget our sweeties either, and I’d probably get my husband True Love Velvet Heart ($30), and since I’d be the one to win the prize, I’d get him to give me one too Purdys Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine (CLOSED)

With the $8 I’d have left, I’d get two of these marshmallow hearts – one for me and another one for me ($2.95).
