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.

How to win this prize?

What are you going to do with the money get back from your return?

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)

Posted by on February 7, 2015 at 7:00 AM

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?

Tell me which Murad products you’ve used or would like to use on your skin!

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

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 7:00 AM

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).

How to win this prize?

Have a look around Purdy’s site and tell me what chocolate makes your mouth water!

For Which Canadian Stores Would You Like To See Exclusive Coupons?

For Which Canadian Stores Would You Like To See Exclusive Coupons?

Here on Bargainmoose over the years, we’ve set up great relationships with some of the stores we write about, and often arrange MOOSE themed exclusive Bargainmoose coupon codes which I am sure you have seen us write about. For the current batch of exclusive coupon codes, we blog about them here and there are more on our forums here.

There are some codes which we’ve had for years and years, and there are some codes which are only valid for a day or two. Some popular examples just now:

Now, the codes may not always be super high, but it’s worth checking Bargainmoose coupons before you shop in case a code will save you a few bucks. You can see a small selection of logos from currently active stores in the image above… but there are around 200 current exclusive coupon codes on Bargainmoose.

Many of our exclusives expire on the 31st December 2014 so we’re going to have a big coupon audit and get loads more active Canadian coupon codes on site. The reason I am writing this post is that I wanted to ask you guys if there are any Canadian stores or boutiques which you regularly shop at, for which you‘d like us to set up an exclusive coupon code. If so, please write it in a comment below, we will check it out and reach out to the store.

Sears Canada Contest Final Day! Win a $100 & a $500 Gift Card! (CLOSED)

*** Contest now closed, winner added soon! ***

Today is the final day of our Sears contest and one lucky winner is going to win a $100 gift. One even luckier winner is going to win a $500 gift card as well! I don’t think this is too bad of a start to a Monday morning.

Sears has some great one-day deals happening today like 10% off your favourite cosmetics and fragrances. They’ve also got up to 55% off slippers and boots for her. Kids furniture is 40% off and gifts for pets are up to 20% off. You really can’t forget Fluffy this Christmas!

What kid wouldn’t want to see his own new car under the tree and better yet, in his bedroom? The Step 2 convertible car bed has amazing reviews and is now only $279.99, with a regular price of $399.99.

All of my pets get Christmas gifts and this FouFou dog floppy fuzzies three-pack is perfect for my dog. What I like about them is that there is no fluff inside for her to pull out and spread all over my house. I always know when there is a stuffie massacre because she leaves a trail of it all over the house. When I ask her what the mess is, she pleads guilty immediately and brings me the slaughtered stuffed animal. She really needs these, now $23.99, with a regular price of $29.99.

Sears Canada Contest Day 6: Win a $100 Gift Card (CLOSED)

*** Contest now closed, winner added soon! ***

Good morning early Sunday risers! Today is Day 6 of our very popular Sears contest and again we’ve got another chance for you to win a $100 gift card. You can enter each and every day, so I hope you’ve been entering every single day.

Today must be tool day at Sears, which is perfect for all that last-minute shopping you’ll be doing for your man this year. My husband only wanted tools for Christmas as he’s decided woodworking is his new hobby. I really can’t complain considering he makes me some really nice furniture and other decorative items. It also keeps him busy and happy and I love that.

I have to ask him what tools he wants because I have no idea what he has or what he actually needs, so he makes me a very specific list. Craftsman is a well-know quality brand at Sears and luckily for all you Sears fans out there, they’ve got 40% off select Craftsman tools today.

What Craftsman tool would fit your fancy? Let me know in the comments below!

*** Contest now closed, winner added soon ***

Finally the weekend! I for one am very happy about this, but the deals must go on as so many of our Moosers love to shop on the weekend. With day 5 of our 7-day Sears contest, I’ve got another $100 gift card available for the win. What do you need to do today?

Well, first, how about having a look around Sears and seeing what items you’d love to get for yourself this year! I know Christmas is about giving, but so many of us give and give and never give to ourselves. I am truly one of those people. I am always looking for hot deals for my husband and kids, and even my dog, but I neglect myself.

I’d really love to reward myself a sweet KitchenAid appliance, like an Artisan stand mixer. These are a total of $220 off today, now $279.99 once you also submit your rebate for $50 off. I could also gift this to my hubby and have him bake me all sorts of goodies, which is treating myself in a roundabout way.

It also looks like Sears has got free shipping, no minimum all weekend, so take advantage of that where you can!

*** Contest now closed, winner added soon ***

We are halfway through our Sears seven days of giveaways and I’ve got another set of deals for you and another question for you to answer for another $100 gift card.

Sears has an absolutely fantastic coupon out today for their 12.12 event, which gets you an extra 12% off select sale items and the best part – it also gets you absolutely free shipping with no minimum! I’ve rarely (personally I’ve never) seen a coupon code for free shipping from Sears so this is a big one!

You’ve got all weekend to use the coupon, which needs to be on items less than 65lbs., but you can go wild in the sale section buying items that are already at a discount, plus 12% off, plus free shipping!

  • Coupon Code: 941612081
  • Discount: Free shipping & 12% off
  • Expiry: 14th December 2014

I really love these Rock & Rose knit tribal leggings, which were $25 and reduced to $17.50. Add the coupon and get them for $15.50. While $2 isn’t a huge discount, the free shipping on these items makes this major. You’d normally have to spend almost $100 to get free shipping, and now, you don’t.

Sears Contest Day 2: Win a $100 Gift Card (CLOSED)

*** Contest now closed, winner added soon!***

Today is day 2 of our Sears 7-day giveaway and you’ve got another chance to win a $100 gift card from Sears.

Sears has a 72-hour toy sale going on, with up to 40% off toys. I think most of have some children to buy for this Christmas and toys are always a hit. I actually wanted to not buy my kids any toys this year as they have way too many, but my husband insisted that it is not Christmas morning without something to play with. Of course I caved. This sale might be just what I need to not spend all that much, and still put a smile on my kid’s faces.

Imaginext is a fun brand and this Fisher-Price Alpha Explorer play set will bring out the scientist in any little one. It has a high rating and is 40% off until tomorrow, regularly $34.99, now $20.99.

What little girl doesn’t want a baby doll and this very adorable Newberry Chloe blond/blue eyed baby doll is wearing the cutest outfit ever! It was $24.99, now $14.99. If you want a doll that more closely resembles the child you are buying it for, there are lots of different looks available in the Newberry dolls.

When I was a little girl, I would not have been able to resist this Barbie chalk hair doll. I loved doing my dolls hair and this is a way it is allowed (instead of using markers). This was $36.99, now $22.19.
