Bench Canada: Men’s Alternative II Jacket $52 (Was $129)

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Bench Canada: Mens Alternative II Jacket $52 (Was $129)

If the man in your life (or yourself) needs a new jacket, Bench has some hot deals on! The Alternative II jacket is a sweet price of only $51.99, with a regular price of $129.

Taking you outside through September, October, November and hopefully March to May, this jacket is a good “most-weather” jacket. It has a funnel neck zip thru to keep your throat protected. I love the way this jacket looks and the length of it. It has a detachable hood, so if you are like my husband, you can remove it under most circumstances. The g is the cheapest of the styles at $51.99 and comes at this price in the pine green and ensign blue. Colours like white or black or red are at regular price.

H and J are also on sale, which are basically different because instead of a solid like the above jacket, they have a pattern. H is London Fog, which is a camo and is $55.99, but with a regular price of $139.99. J has a very nice dotted pattern for $55.99 and comes in smoked pearl, twilight blue and true red all for that sale price.

A very similar jacket to the men’s jacket in a ladies style is the BBQ Vickster jacket, which looks very similar in style, except of course the pattern. This pattern is the raspberry rose, which I think is very unique and perfect for the person who wants to stand out with a beautiful jacket. It is on sale for $51.99, with a regular price of $129.

Besides jackets, Bench has a number of items available on sale for outstanding prices. I love that you can search by price, size and colour so you can get exactly what you want on the first try. It is such a pain shopping the sale section on some sites only to keep finding that they only have one size left, and it isn’t mine. This way I can filter out any size I don’t want and see only what they have available for me. No searching through the virtual racks at Bench!

Shipping is free on orders over $99.

Bench Canada End Of Season Sale: 60% Off All Spring/ Summer Clothing & Accessories

Posted by on August 6, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Bench Canada End Of Season Sale: 60% Off All Spring/ Summer Clothing & Accessories

It looks like Bench has decided to up the ante! Eva blogged about a 40% off sale a couple of weeks ago but you can now save 60% off all spring/ summer products during their End of Season Sale. This is definitely sure to be as good as it will ever get! Since there are so many great picks are amazing prices, I decided to just feature the sale as a whole instead of focusing on any one item.

End of Season sales are definitely the best, especially when you calculate all of the racked up savings once you reach the checkout. Even better about this one is that there are plenty of jackets that could be used in the upcoming fall season. The men’s Arndale hooded zip, for instance, looks super warm and cozy, especially as it’s 100% cotton. It’s a zippered jacket, though the zipper is slightly off-centre, and it features a larger collar with the Bench logo on the front. It was originally priced at $119, but is now on sale for $47.99.

Although the zippered is centred, for a similar look to the Arndale but for women, I also found the Harribob zip thru. It’s on sale for $39.99 (reg. $99) and it has quite an interesting pattern that you will have to check out for yourself (simply hover over the picture to see a closer look). What I love about both of these jackets is the collar as it doesn’t look like a regular one. Instead, it’s more raised and looks like it could be great for burrowing your chin/ lower part of your face into when walking home on a particularly cold and windy day. I know these days are still far ahead but it is August already and if you wait to get your fall/ winter apparel until when it the temperature drops, then you likely won’t get as good of a deal as you can now.

There are plenty more amazing deals on all sorts of merchandise like tanks, tops, leggings, skirts, etc. Be sure to reach the $99 minimum threshold for free shipping to avoid the pesky $9.95 shipping charge that will otherwise apply.

Did you know that Bargainmoose is on Flickr? Just like the one above, there are plenty of storefront pictures taken by Anna herself. Even better is that it’s creative commons, which means that you can use it on your very own blog or anywhere else. Just make sure to give credit!

Bench Canada: 40% Off All Spring & Summer & 30% off Outerwear

Posted by on July 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Bench Canada: 40% Off All Spring & Summer & 30% off Outerwear

Bench has a sweet deal going on right now on all spring and summer merch. Get 40% off everything in their spring/summer line and get 30% off already reduced men’s and women’s outerwear. So, no matter what season you shopping for, you’ll find a hot deal.

I’ve actually never bought anything from Bench before as I’m not a lover of wearing items with a huge logo or store name across it. Old Navy, Bench, Roots (among others) do this often and although I know some people love this, I am not a fan. But, during Bench’s spring/summer sale, I see so many items I will wear that don’t have any logos or large print lettering across the front.

While I can see that it does say Bench on the hip, that type of branding is not too bad on the active capri legging with mesh. Bench actually emphasizes this as some people really like to show what brand they are wearing. So, if you don’t like it, cover it with a shirt, if you do, flaunt it. I think these leggings are perfect for the gym and running errands and you really can’t have too many pairs of capri leggings in my opinion. These were $69, now $40.99.

I could pair the leggings with this active top with ruched back, which is very cute and I love wearing grey with black for the gym. Grey just seems like a colour you want to sweat in! This top was $65, now $38.99.

My husband really appreciates a good hoodie. I love the look of this curfew hooded zip in smoked pearl. It looks perfect for cool nights at camping and is on sale for $58.99. It has a regular price of $99.

Shipping is free on a $99 order so take advantage and stock up for winter, spring and summer!

Bench Canada: Asher Overhead Hoody Now $29.99 / Was $99

Posted by on July 6, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Bench Canada: Asher Overhead Hoody Now $29.99 / Was $99

I was having a look through the sale section at Bench Canada because they are offering some great deals right now. All of their sales items are an additional 50% off the lowest price.  I found this Asher overhead hoody that was $99 for just $29.99 with this additional 50% discount!

This hoody is listed under the men’s sale section, but with the bright colour of yellow and the awesome price, I was actually thinking of getting it for myself instead of my husband.  It was $99 and is on sale for $59.99.  Once you add it to your cart, you will save an additional 50% off that price bringing the total cost down to just $29.99.

A little bit about this great deal: it is a hooded sweatshirt with the Bench logo on the front of it.  It has a drawstring hood and it is bright yellow in colour, making it a unisex style.  They do have this exact hoody in other colours, but the prices are a bit different.  For example, if you prefer it in grey, the final discounted price is $34.99.  That is still a great deal if you don’t mind paying an extra $5 for the colour grey. Everything else about this hoody is the same. I actually prefer the yellow because of how bold and bright it is, and it is far more unique than the run of the mill grey.

Don’t forget to check out all of the other great sales deals that are an additional 50% off the lowest ticketed price as well.  You have the chance to save a bundle on some clothing and accessory purchases.

If your cart total is $99 or more, you will get free shipping as well.

Bench Canada: Extra 50% Off Ana Top (Now $10 | Was $30)

Posted by on June 23, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Bench Canada: Extra 50% Off Ana Top (Now $10 | Was $30)

Right now, Bench is offering an additional 50% off all already reduced merchandise. Along plenty of other great picks, you can get the Ana top for just $9.99 instead of its reduced price of $19.99 (reg. $29.99). The discount is automatically applied at checkout.

Although it also comes in black, I much prefer the Ana top in the blazing yellow option given that summer is now officially in full swing. In yellow, it’s only available in small, large or extra large, while in black, you can get it in medium or large. It looks rather ordinary in the front, but it’s definitely one of those “business up front, party in the back” kind of tops as it features a deep V in the back. I could definitely see it becoming one of my go-to shirts for the summer, especially for grabbing lunch with a friend or attending a mommy meeting. Bench Canada: Extra 50% Off Ana Top (Now $10 | Was $30)

Since shipping is only free on purchases totaling over $99, be sure to also have a look at the rest of the items in the sale section. Last week, my hubby had a hard time finding a tank that wasn’t tight and so if it’s the case for you or your own hubby, then have a look at the Hoff The Hook t-shirt. It’s already on sale for $24.99 (reg. $29.99) but gets further reduced to just $12.50, which is definitely a much better price to pay than its full one.

If you’re looking for a dress, then the Racer dress may be right up your alley. With the discount, it comes down to just $17.50 from its sale price of $34.99 (reg. $39)  and comes in either grey to black. Just like the Ana top, it’s rather simple in the front but features the Bench logo in the back in a large font, which looks like a big number “1″ from afar.

Bench Canada: 78% Off Bench Floral Denim Skirt – Now $15

Posted by on June 22, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Bench Canada: 78% Off Bench Floral Denim Skirt   Now $15

Bench Canada’s extra 50% off their sale section is continuing, and I have been rifling through it to update my summer wardrobe. I ran across this cute Home Time Skirt in Windchime on sale from $69, down to $29.99. Once you add it to your cart it comes down to just $14.99.

The Home Time Skirt is a floral print denim mini skirt with asymmetric zip fastening on left side. It also has a zip fasten pocket on right side. The floral print sort of looks like a green cammo background with white and orange flowers on the foreground. It is sort of a funky take on a Hawaii print. The zippers provide a nice accent and break from the print itself, and I could see this skirt easily paired with sandals and a nice breezy tee. Some nice over-sized aviator sunglasses would look smashing with it as well.

The skirt is still available in all sizes: from extra-small to extra-large. I highly recommend checking out the size chart you can find on the page (just scroll down) to see what measurements correspond to each size. This denim skirt is made of 100% cotton so there is not a lot of stretch (no spandex content). Thus, you should be pretty close to the recommended measurements for the size you buy.

Bench Canada has some matching clothing an accessories in the same print. While not as good deals as the skirt, they still are all great deals with that extra 50% off in cart. This Bench Foliage Zip (Windchime) was $99 and is now $59.99. After you add it to your cart, the hoodie comes down to just $29.99 which is 70% off the original price.  All sizes are still available in this jacket as well.

You can also pick up accessories. The Mylani b Beach Bag (Windchime) is a great little bag for shoving everything you need in and hitting the pool or beach. Originally $79, the bag is on sale for $49.99. After you add it to your cart, it comes down to $24.99. Pick up this matching Mylani b Purse (Windchime) to stick in it for just $15 after all discounts (originally $39).

This is a fun little print, and I highly recommend picking up the skirt at 78% off and the matching hoodie at 70% off. You can mix and match them with your other clothing.

Shipping for orders of $99 or more is free; however, if you place an order under that minimum then you will pay $9.95 shipping. Ten dollars is not much to pay, given how much you are saving on the skirt alone.

Bench Canada: 75% Off Klung Zip Thru Hoody – Now $24.99

Posted by on June 16, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Bench Canada: 75% Off Klung Zip Thru Hoody   Now $24.99

I found the most amazing deal at Bench Canada right now. Pick up a legendary Bench brand zip thru hoody for 75% off its original price! The Klung Zip Thru Hoody was $99 and it is now marked down to $49.99. With the extra 50% off clearance offer on right now at Bench, this hoodie comes down to just $24.99 in your cart.

This is a traditional Bench hoodie: or hooded sweater. It comes with drawstring ties in the hood so you can hunker down on a windy day. The Bench logo is printed on front and onto suede like tab on the rear right hem. This is actually far more discreet than either of my Bench hoodies, which have the logo in huge print running up half the length of the arm. The hood lining is made of a contrast pattern material with the Bench logo as well.

This sweater is made for women (if you had not picked up on that) and is currently available in all sizes: XS through XL. Usually when I find great deals like this, the sizing is so limited, thus this time I am pretty stoked! The colour combo reminds me almost of a snow camo or an abstract painting. The colour scheme is a mix of greys, orange, and what looks like peach. It is somewhat hard to tell because monitors can really fake out colours.

Bench hoodies are super versatile. In almost all my travel photos, I seem to be wearing a Bench hoodie because they are the perfect layering piece. They are also super durable and mine have lasted many years of wear. While the one has significantly faded, it is still a good, thick, and comfortable sweater to wear both inside and outside the house. One of my favourite Bench features is their deep hoods. They offer more face protection, which I like appreciate when out in the elements. I would not hesitate to buy a Bench hoodie again especially at such an awesome price.

You are saving $74 on this hooded sweater. Shipping for orders of $99 or more is free; however, if you place an order under that minimum then you will pay $9.95 shipping. I would suggest teaming up with some other Bench loving friends if you want to hit the minimum; however, if you do not make it I think that is fine. Even if you pay for shipping, you are still saving $64 on this shirt, which is a huge amount.

Bench Canada: Extra 40% Off Moake Backpack (Now $18 | Was $60)

Bench Canada: Extra 40% Off Moake Backpack (Now $18 | Was $60)

A recent picture I saw of a couple with their four month old baby in a carrier on a hiking trip inspired me to search for a good deal on backpacks in time for Father’s Day, and lo and behold, I found one at Bench! The Moake backpack is already on sale for $29.99 (reg. $59.99) but is further brought down to just $17.99 at checkout (no code necessary) as part of Bench’s latest sale: 40% off all regularly-priced merchandise and an extra 40% off sale items.

This backpack would definitely be perfect for just about any Dad, the sporty kind or even the workaholic. Although it doesn’t have a million and one little pockets and places to store every odd little thing like some other backpacks, it nevertheless is sure to get the job done — that of carrying your things.

On top of its simplistic design, I also really like that it has a separate section designed for a laptop, or anything else really (i.e. maps if going on a hiking trip or important documents etc.)

Alternatively, the Echo Despatch bag is also on sale right now. Originally priced at $49, it’s now $39.99 and further comes down to just $23.99 at checkout. Similar to an Adidas Airliner bag, it’s a shoulder bag in a black colour that features an adjustable strap and a large pocket on the front.

I know that summer hasn’t even technically begun yet, but fact of the matter is that going back to school will come quicker than any kid would want it to. So if you have young ones, planning ahead for back to school by purchasing either one of these bags may prove worthwhile.

Don’t worry ladies, I haven’t forgotten about you and neither has Bench! I spotted this super cute Mylani across body bag, which can be yours for just $17.99 (on sale $29.99/ reg. $39). It would be the perfect compliment to any boho chic look!

No word on when this awesome sale will end, so don’t miss your chance at great savings. Plus, if shopping for $99 or more, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Bench Canada: 40% Off Entire Store

Posted by on May 14, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Bench Canada: 40% Off Entire Store

Bench Canada is back with their best promotion of all: get 40% off their entire store including sale merchandise.

The Bench sale section is probably a favourite destination of many shoppers. Bench is known for their quality and comfortable clothing, most notably their zip up hoodies with the thumb holes. I own two of them myself. So when you combine Bench’s sale section with an extra discount: deal hunters flock on mass.

There are 296 items in the sale section people! If you can’t find something you like in your size: well, sorry. This Check in Zip Thru is a good basic zip top which was $89 and is now $69.99. You save $19 right off the top and then when you add the top to your cart it will come down to $41.99.

This Cracked Top was originally $45. I’m not sure how many of us would shell out $45 for a black and white tee, but it is now on sale for $29.99. When you add it to your cart it will come down to just $17.99. Most people I know are willing to pay up to $20 for a tee they like so this shirt is right on budget for something worth a bit more.

Get free shipping on orders of $99 or more. If your order is under the minimum for free shipping, shipping costs $9.95.

Bench Canada: Additional 40% Off Sale Items

Posted by on April 27, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Bench Canada: Additional 40% Off Sale Items

One of my favourite stores has an incredible sale happening that just got sweeter. You will be able to get an additional 40% off all sale items for a limited time only.

Bench Canada offers men’s, women’s, and kids clothing and accessories, so you can shop for the whole family.  They seem to be most known for their sweat shirts and jackets, but they have so much more than that to offer.

The way this offer will work is when you add any sale items from any of the categories to your cart, you will get an additional 40% off at the checkout. There is no need for a coupon code or anything else to get the discount as it will be automatic.

I found this awesome black dress that was $69 and is now $49.99.  Once you add it to your cart, the price drops to just $29.99 which is a pretty incredible deal for any dress, let alone one from Bench Canada.

I also found this boys blocks shirt that was $28 and is now $14.99.  With the additional 40% off at the checkout, the price becomes just $8.99.

Since there is no set expiry date for this deal, it could end at any time.  I suggest grabbing the deals you want sooner rather than later to make sure you get them while the prices are so low.

You will automatically get free shipping for all orders of $99 or more.

Bench Canada Easter Weekend Sale: 30% Off Everything

Posted by on April 17, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Bench Canada Easter Weekend Sale: 30% Off EverythingBench’s Easter Weekend Sale is now on and during a couple of days only, you can save 30% off absolutely everything! The discount will automatically be applied at checkout.

Whenever there is a site wide sale, the first detail I check is whether it applies to items that are already on sale and I’m happy to report that yes, Bench’s sale does indeed extend to these items! I experimented on this very lovely Amy dress, which is on sale for $49.99 (was $69) and at checkout, it was further brought down to just $34.99.

Since men’s t-shirts can be pretty pricey for no reason sometimes, I also suggest you check out the one’s on sale at Bench right now because there are a couple of unique selections such as the Toweblock t-shirt, which comes down to $13.99 from its sale price of $19.99 (reg. $39).

In the new arrivals section, I also spotted this super cute soldery jacket in a camo print, which would look fantastic during a cooler night spent camping this summer, although of course, it can also be worn during any other chilly night! Bench Canada Easter Weekend Sale: 30% Off Everything Regularly priced at $99, you can have it for just $69.30.

Don’t forget to reach the $99 minimum threshold for free shipping to avoid paying any pesky fees.

Bench Canada: BOGO 50% Off

Bench is having a really great sale on right now, with a buy one, get one 50% off offer.

It looks like this sale is on everything, including sale items, so you can really get yourself some great deals in your cart.

This kid’s motion t-shirt is a great neutral top for any kid. I would never pay the $29.99 for a kid’s t-shirt, but I’d consider the $19.99 it is on sale for. I’d really consider getting two and paying only $14.99 per shirt.

This women’s pullon hoodie looks super comfortable, especially with thumbholes for keeping your hands in your sleeves to keep them warm. It was originally $59, but brought down to $29.99. If I wanted to get my hubby something warm to wear too, this quarry zip thru funnel is a really nice buy. It was originally $69, down $20 to $49.99. But, if I bought both, my hoodie would only be $15, which works for me!

At Bench, you can get something for the entire family, which makes the $99 shipping threshold to get free shipping not too bad. Once you buy something for everyone and get two items 50% off and free shipping, you’ll feel good that you did such a nice thing for your family!

Bench Canada: $30 Off Every $100 Spent on Outerwear

Posted by on March 31, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Bench Canada: $30 Off Every $100 Spent on Outerwear

Bench Canada is offering $30 off every $100 spent on outerwear. That means if you spend $200 you get $60 off, spend $300 and you get $90 off, and so on.

The savings will be automatically applied when you add the items to your cart. I tested the deal out on this BBQ Jacket in Nasturtium which is an orange colour. The jacket retails for $129 and after I added it to my cart it came down to $99. The jacket is available in four other colours so if orange is not your thing there are other options.

The men’s section has some very nice coats as well. This Alternative II J retails for $139 but comes down to $109 after you add it to your cart. It comes in four colours with my favourite being the twilight blue.

Children’s jackets also qualify for the discount. I added this Barbeque b Jacket together with the Women’s BBQ Jacket I linked to above and because together they totalled over $200, $60 came off my cart total.

Get free shipping on orders of $99 or more.

Bench Canada: Up to 30% off Kids Items

Posted by on March 25, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Bench Canada: Up to 30% off Kids Items

Bench Canada has a deal on kids clothing when you buy more than one item. When you buy two items you will save 20%, and when you buy three items you will save 30%.

I decided to see if sale items would also work with this offer because stacking discounts is one of the things I enjoy the most. I checked out this Pullon Hoodie  (Total Eclipse) that was $59 and is now on sale for $39.99. I added two of them to my cart which totaled $79.98 but then because I had two kids items the extra 20% came off and my cart total went down to $63.98 which works out to $31.99 a jacket. I threw a third hoodie into the cart and the extra discount came off as well so then each hoodie worked out to only $27.99 each! So you absolutely can team this deal up with sale items.

Mix and match the above hoodie with the Janty Core Fleece Funnel (Total Eclipse) which also was $59 and is now $39.99. If you get two jackets (say a Fleece and a Hoodie) they will work out to $31.99 each or if you get three (whatever combo) then you are only paying $27.99 a jacket.

Receive free shipping on orders of $99 or more.
