BestBuy Canada: Bose Soundlink Mini Speaker Was $220 | Now $200 & Free Mini Speaker ($10 Value)

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 12:30 PM

BestBuy Canada: Bose Soundlink Mini Speaker Was $220 | Now $200 & Free Mini Speaker ($10 Value)

The only speaker in the world that I want is the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker. Bose rarely ever goes on sale (like never), so I am pleased to bring you this deal on the Bose SoundLink. Originally $219.99, the speaker is now on sale for $199.99. You will also receive a free Philips Universal Portable Speaker, valued at $9.99, with your purchase.

Now, this speaker is on sale for the same price at a few other retailers – like Amazon and Bose. While the prices match, Best Buy’s deal is better because of the bonus speaker you receive – an extra $10 value. You need to follow these exact steps to receive your free speaker.

You need to add the freebie speaker before you add the big boy to your cart. At checkout, you will notice that they process the discount oddly. Instead of simply having the freebie speaker show as free, they take the cost of that speaker off the cost of the Bose SoundLink Mini. Your cart will look like this:

BestBuy Canada: Bose Soundlink Mini Speaker Was $220 | Now $200 & Free Mini Speaker ($10 Value)

As you can see, the price of the Bose SoundLink drops to $190 instead of the price of the Philips speaker being dropped.

The free speaker is available in black or purple as blue has already sold out. Of course, the Bose Speaker is legendary. The speaker rates 4.8/5 stars with over 100 ratings. One reviewer said:

This is simply the best Bluetooth speaker in this price range. Quality sound, user friendly. When you purchase Bose you know your getting quality. Don’t even bother the competition, buy the Bose and enjoy!

I wanted this speaker badly, but I ended up with the Sony SRS-X5 as the price was more affordable. I still dream of owning the Bose SoundLink Mini. The next time I buy a wireless speaker, I will save up and purchase it. I have heard this speaker fill an entire classroom with large, loud, rich sound. The day I heard my classmate’s Bose Soundlink Mini is the day I knew I would buy one for myself.

The mini Philips speaker is a nice little bonus that you might want to give away as a gift once you hear the Bose’s sound. Receive free shipping as your order is over $25.

Brother Wireless All In One Laser Printer Was $180 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 8:33 AM

Brother Wireless All In One Laser Printer Was $180 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Over at Best Buy Canada today there is a rock solid deal on the Brother Wireless All In One printer. This printer was $179.99, but is now only $79.99. This printer also meets the $25 minimum to qualify for free shipping to your door.

I recently bought a printer for our house. We waited a while to buy a new one after our last printer dried up completely in our moving truck and destroyed it. Both my husband and I were frustrated at dropping money on a printer again. For a while, we played the game where we tried to print only important items at his work. There was more than once we had to run over to Staples frantically to print something important. In the end, it was a pain not having a printer at home and I wish we would have bought this little deal sooner.

If it is time to upgrade in your house, the Brother Wireless All In One Laser printer will cover you. You can print wirelessly from almost all mobile devices and laptops through Google Cloud print or AirPrint for iOS devices. This printer prints at a speed of 27ppm on one or both sides of the paper. The paper tray holds 250 sheets, which cuts down on frequent reloading. Scan documents in colour or black and white, and copy directly on the printer. This printer should have you covered for every important paper or project for home and school.

After price matching around the web, this deal looks fantastic. Check out some of the prices at other retailers for the same printer.

Over on Best Buy’s website 14 people have rated this printer and the ratings are holding strong at four out of five stars average. Here are one reviewer’s notes:

Brother Wireless All In One Laser Printer Was $180 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Overall buyers seem happy with this printer. Several have mentioned that they struggled with the cloud set-up, but just as many mentioned that set-up is simple. I think I would plan to set aside a little time to connect my devices for the first time with this printer.

I expect these printers will sell out long before the end of the day at this price. While I wrote this post, I kept refreshing to make sure the item was still in stock. If you want one, you may want to jump on it now before they are gone. I have seen several items on sale at Best Buy Canada at great prices go out of stock quickly this week.

Best Buy Canada: 40% Off Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat – Now Just $57 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 19, 2015 at 7:41 PM

Best Buy Canada: 40% Off Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat   Now Just $57 & Free Shipping

Has the time come to get a booster seat? At Best Buy, you can get the Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah booster car seat for just $56.99. It was originally priced at $94.99, which means that you’re looking to save $38 but only until the end of the month. Shipping is free as well as Best Buy ships orders over $25 for free.

Designed for kids ages from 48 months to 96 months, this booster car seat is more specifically suited for kids under 49.8kg in weight and under 145cm in height.

It’s Transport Canada certified and tested in accordance with all of the crash test standards, which is great and all but do you want to know what makes this car seat truly awesome sounding? It has built-in speakers.

I’ll let that sink in for a moment: built-in speakers — how cool is that? This means that no matter how short or long the ride is, your kid could entertain himself by playing games or watching movies on a tablet. Gone are the days of: “are we there yet?” We live in a tech world and this is definitely a pretty nifty feature!

Out of 10 ratings, this booster car seat has a total of 4/5 stars with reviews like this one:

We love our new car seat. The special feature of speakers and lights is great for long trips.

In fact, only one reviewer rated this car seat 1/5 stars but didn’t even provide a review.

Plus, it also has dual-activity lights on the headrest that allow kids to read or colour in full brightness without these distracting whoever is driving. Keep in mind that these do require two AA batteries that aren’t included.

Another very convenient feature that any parent is sure to love is that the car seat pad is machine washable. Plus, the plastic and metal parts can easily be wiped clean with mild soap and water — or you can just use a baby wipe like I do! Best Buy Canada: 40% Off Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat   Now Just $57 & Free Shipping

At Shop.ca, this same booster car seat is currently sold out but was on sale for $74.99 (reg  $99.99) and at Walmart, it’s currently priced as high as $95.

Sony 55″ 1080P 3D LED Smart TV Was $1100 now $800 + Shipping @ Best Buy Canada!

Posted by on April 18, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Sony 55 1080P 3D LED Smart TV Was $1100 now $800 + Shipping @ Best Buy Canada!

If anyone is looking out for a deal on a big-screen TV, then they’d do well to check out this deal from Best Buy Canada. The black KDL55W800B Sony 55″ 1080P 3D LED Smart TV is priced at $1099.99 on their site just now. But when you add this Sony LED TV to your shopping cart, there is an instant$300 discount bringing it down to only $799.99!!

Here’s what you should see when you place this TV in your cart:

Sony 55 1080P 3D LED Smart TV Was $1100 now $800 + Shipping @ Best Buy Canada!

As the KDL55W800B Sony 55″ Smart TV is so large, you cannot use the collect at store option from Best Buy. You can only choose the scheduled delivery option which unfortunately costs a little extra. As you can see in the screenshot above, it seems to be an extra $57.99. But, as the TV is discounted by the extra $300 anyway, that really makes up for that additional delivery charge.

Price Comparisons

As for price comparing this TV elsewhere, Best Buy’s price is definitely the best of the bunch. The same model is $1084+ on Amazon.ca and it’s $1100 from Sony themselves. It’s not sold at many more online retailers to price compare. But this is a mega-whopping TV for the money!

Reviews

There’s only one review on the Best Buy site, giving this TV a positive rating of 4 stars out of 5. There aren’t really many reviews elsewhere as this seems to be a model exclusive to Best Buy. However, there are 189 reviews here on Amazon.com, the majority with positive comments… but a few negatives too. That might be worth a read.

Add-Ons

If you are so inclined, there’s another deal at best Buy involving a home theatre system. If you buy this Bose Cinemate 130 home theatre system which is $1599.99 along with your TV, you get an extra $160 discount in your cart. Obviously that’s a pretty big additional spend, so might need a little research and homework before you buy. Sony 55 1080P 3D LED Smart TV Was $1100 now $800 + Shipping @ Best Buy Canada!

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi-packs

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi packs

Buy one and get one free on select Blu-Ray multi-packs at Best Buy Canada. Blu-rays are just $9.99 so you will receive two multi-packs, four movies, for just $9.99.

Multi-packs are a great way to get more movies for less. The Best Buy sale includes some really popular titles for adults and kids. Some multi-packs are from the same movies series while others combine two movies that might have a similar audience. Here are some adult multi-packs I recommend:

My father really likes the Transporter series; I think he already has both these films. I have heard amazing things about Wall Street – that the actors deliver powerful performances. Moulin Rouge should be a classic, though I confess that I have never seen it. It is on my bucket list! I rather like The Devil Wears Prada merely because of all the amazing fashion on the movie.

There are also plenty of multi-packs for children as well:

I may love Robin Williams, but I have never been able to sit through Night at the Museum. Since I have tried, twice, to make it through NatM and failed – I have never attempted the sequel. I have seen both Ice Age 1 and 2. They are both enjoyable in their own way. However, I really want to strangle that sloth like no tomorrow. My favourite character is the sabre-tooth squirrel.

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi packs

Now, this deal can stack on top of itself. That means you can buy two and get two free or buy three and receive three free. I tried it out with four Blu-Ray multi-packs. My total was $19.98 for all four – two were free.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Most of these movies are available for in-store pickup free of charge. If you do not plan to buy six multi-packs (total of $30) to receive free shipping, then you may just want to order and pick up instead. Oddly enough, free shipping was showing on my cart total of $19.98. I wonder if it was calculate the shipping minimum before discount.

Best Buy Canada: Durian Accent Chair Was $400 | Now $99 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 9:56 AM

Best Buy Canada: Durian Accent Chair Was $400 | Now $99 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

If you are looking for a very inexpensive way to add decor and seating to your home, Best Buy’s deal today only will do you well. Get the Durian accent chair, with your choice of three colours for only $99.99, regularly $400. Because this item is over $25, you’ll also get free shipping.

As I said, there are three colour choices for this stylish chair – rice paper (a light neutral), berry (a deep red) and aubergine (dark purple).

I bought some inexpensive accent chairs similar to this from Ikea when I was staging my home. Too bad they are seriously uncomfortable to sit on. My husband and I have been complaining to each other about these chairs and how we should buy new ones. These Durian chairs look much more comfortable with a more-full cushion and more padding around the back of the chair. I also love the metal legs, which add more style to the chair with a modern touch on a classic chair.

While I didn’t find this chair at other retailers, I see through my research that we blogged this chair in December, when it was on sale for $200. This means this is a seriously low price.

I did shop around at other retailers for similar looking chairs and found this one at Lowe’s, which does have an ottoman, but sells for $300. This Metro chair from Walmart has a similar look, although with a square back and not as comfy of a cushion and sells for $200.

If you are planning on staging your home, adding a chair for an accent, or even using these chairs at the dining table, this is a great buy. Chairs can be so expensive, so it is nice when a deal like this comes along and you can get this chair to your home for less than a hundred bucks.

There is one review on this chair (on the aubergine):

Comfortable and good looking chair.

The ratings are also high, with two four star and one five star rating.

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 9:23 PM

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Best Buy Canada is offering two select Xbox One games for just $50. These games regularly retail for $39.99 each – so you are saving around $30 with this deal. As you are buying two games for $50, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Select game titles include:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One)
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One)
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One)
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One)
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One)

While this looks like a good deal – I did some careful price comparing with Walmart and with Amazon Canada to see what they charger per game.

Walmart Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $64.96
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – not stocked
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $39.96 (OOS)

Amazon Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $34.89
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.99
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $28.99

With this promotion from Best Buy, each game comes down to $25, which certainly bests any of the prices at Walmart and Amazon right now. Three previously played versions are also included in the offer. However, I would only select them at last resort – if the regular version were sold out – as they are certainly worth less money.

I know zip about these games; therefore, I suggest reading some comments on Best Buy. I checked out the reviews on Sunset Overdrive and found everyone (except one guy) really loved the game. Most gamers were saying the person who gave the game one star obviously had not played the game themselves. For the three games that have ratings; Sunset Overdrive has a 4/5 star rating, Forza 5 has a 5/5 star rating, and Dead Rising 3 Also has a 5/5 star rating.

With the recent release of Furious 7, I really have the itch to play another racing game. Boxing and racing games used to be my standby entertainment when I was at the movie theatre too early. I really enjoyed the car racing games as well as the motorcycle racing games. I would pick up Forza Motorsport 5 – game of the Year edition for sure!

I have no idea when this promotion ends so please purchase sooner rather than risk missing out.

Best Buy Canada: Jawbone Up – Now $40 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 4:13 PM

Best Buy Canada: Jawbone Up   Now $40 & Free Shipping

Best Buy Canada is offering $10 off the Jawbone Up entry-level fitness tracker. Currently priced at $49.95, this fitness tracker is on sale for only $39.95 with free shipping.

Only select colours and sizes are still in stock. I have compiled a list here:

Small and large are still available, but medium is out of stock. I am not sure what the difference is between the large Onyx and the large black as Best Buy Canada fails to give model numbers. In fact, price comparing took forever because there are just no model numbers, yet the prices for the Jawbone Up can vary widely. I had to be careful not to price compare against the Jawbone Up24 – which is a newer version.

Best Buy Canada has the most reasonable price on this device by a long shot. When I started price comparing, I could not believe the price of these fitness trackers on other websites. The Jawbone Up costs:

  • $139.99 @ Sport Chek Canada
  • $119.97 @ Staples Canada
  • $79.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $60 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

Prices at these and other places vary depending on the size you want. Best Buy Canada has the same price for both the large and the small Jawbone UP Activity & Sleep tracker. Reviews vary from five stars to one star. Some people have problems with the sleep function. If you move around too much, then the device things you are awake and stops tracking your sleep.

I checked back on these Jawbone Up devises. They originally retailed for $129 as mentioned here, but have had a price reduction since then. Now the devices are only $40, which is less than half the original price. We have seen a deal like this once before, when Margarita posted about a one-day sale at Future Shop.

This may be a very base model for a sleep and fitness tracker, but it is a great way to test out the technology before you invest $100+ into a device. For $40, you can get a peek into how well you are doing each day and how well you are sleeping each night. For $40, I think this device is well worth purchasing.

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.

Lexar 128GB JumpDrive (USB 3.0) Was $75 Now $45 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on April 5, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Lexar 128GB JumpDrive (USB 3.0) Was $75 Now $45 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Need some extra portable storage for your movies, files, pictures or documents? Check out the deal on this black Lexar JumpDrive 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (LJDS23-128ASBNA) – it was $74.99, there’s $30 off and it’s now only $44.99 with free shipping, online at Best Buy Canada.

The USB flash drive features a retractable connector with an thumb slide which pops the conector in and out when you want to use it.

Even though it’s USB 3.0, it’s still backwards compatible even if your device is another version of USB, so you don’t need to worry about that. The flash drive will also work on PC or Mac.

Reviews

The ratings on Best Buy seem to be a little poor; six people voted this Lexar flash drive with only one star out of five. The Best Buy site doesn’t seem to show us the actual text that people wrote or the reasons for these poor reviews. If you’re interested to hear more opinions, have a google around and see what you think.

If you’re interested in a pen drive with the most bang for your buck, this actually works out to be $0.35 per GB which is a very low price for flash drives. Consider what you’re going to be using it for and then make the decision if you’re happy to buy at this price. If you’re using it to transfer important documents for work or something, you might be interested in getting a more high-end and reliable model… but if you’re just using it to pass round some low-risk unimportant files, then this is a great deal for the money.

Warranty

You’ll be pleased to hear that this Lexar flash drives comes with a three year limited warranty to cover you should the drive break in that time period. Just make sure you keep your proof of purchase in case anything happens.

You know, I’ve had many pen drives over the years… maybe as many as ten or eleven, but I’ve never had a faulty one! I usually tend to just get bored of one and move on up to the next size available. Or, lend them to friends and family to share some documents… then never see the flash drives again. Lexar 128GB JumpDrive (USB 3.0) Was $75 Now $45 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Price Comparison

The very same flash drive is $70+ on Amazon.ca, $52 @ Tigerdirect.ca, $107 @ Expansys.ca. The online price at London Drugs states that it is only $41.99, but it’s not available to order there anyway, so it’s not really a valid comparator. It’s possible you can check in-store for it at the lower price, but that’s just not as handy as ordering online from Best Buy Canada.

Best Buy: SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB Class 10 UHS-I Memory Card Was $100 | Now $60 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 1, 2015 at 11:17 PM

Best Buy: SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB Class 10 UHS I Memory Card Was $100 | Now $60 (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada has a great deal on a truly professional memory card. The SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB 80MB/s SDXC Class 10 UHS-I Memory Card is on sale from $99.99 down to $59.99 with free shipping.

This is no ordinary memory card. The SanDisk features reading speeds of up to 80MB/s and writing speeds up to 60MB/S for quick transfer rates and quick picture taking. The picture is stored in your camera’s memory fast – there is no delay here. This is both a Class 10 card and has the UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) video rating. That means this card can handle cinema-quality 3D and full HD videos. You want this card if you are recording RAW video.

When price comparing, you need to find the right card to compare against. There are several 64GB extreme memory cards from SanDisk – so make sure you are comparing against the Class 10 and UHS Class 1. I found the same memory card at Amazon Canada for $129.95 and at Vistek Canada for $139.99. I have seen similar cards – like the U3 – for as low as $63 but that only had a reading speed of up to 60MB/S instead of 80MB/s.

This is a card you might want to use in high quality digital cameras where you will be shooting HD movies or taking raw photos. This is certainly a professional quality memory card, and one I would be happy to stick in my Sony camera. The speed would make it excellent for action shots – like when I took a 19-image action snap of a geyser bursting. I wish my memory card had been faster so I could have captured more images – especially in the early stages.

One reviewer recommends this card when it is on sale:

Got this for my Canon Rebel during this year’s Black Friday sale. Works fine and got a good deal for it. It would probably be best to wait until another sale to get this if you’re not in a hurry to get it.

Well, here is another sale! For only $60, I think this is a fantastic buy especially at 64GB of memory. It will take you a while to max that out for memory.

Best Buy Canada: Up to 76% Off TechCraft Atrium Furniture & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada is offering up to 76% off TechCraft Atrium accent furniture. Receive free shipping on all these pieces as well.

Unfortunately, the awesome front entry Bench with storage is already sold out. However, there are three other furniture pieces to choose from in this sale.

The TechCraft Atrium Storage Wall Hanging Shelf (A10BLHNS42) takes your storage needs and lifts them off the floor. Mount this shelving unit in your front entry, workroom, office, playroom, or even a child’s bedroom. Enjoy more floor space, less clutter, and better storage solutions for mitts, scarves, toys, office supplies, and more. Originally $219.99, the shelf is on sale for $59.99.

Next, the TechCraft Atrium Storage Credenza (A10BLST36) matches the above shelf and is a great solution for lower storage needs. You could even use this as a baby change table by adding on a changing pad to the top. The shelves and baskets provide excellent storage options. I could also see using this in the bottom of a closet if you are limited on room. Children could put their clothes on the shelves and their socks in the baskets. Originally $359.99, the storage unit is on sale for $99.99.

Lastly, purchase the TechCraft Atrium Mirror Cabinet (A10BLMRS20) to match your set, Originally $179.99, this framed mirror is on sale for $49.99. Mirrors are rather pricey, so this unit is worth the $50 just for the mirror alone. However, you also will enjoy extra storage space behind the mirror too! Open up the mirror to reveal storage hooks, a cork board, and a mail slot. There are also hooks below the mirror that can be used for jackets, scarves, umbrellas, and more. If you want to use it in a bathroom, the use the hooks for hanging up wet washcloths. I love having one of these in my entryway so I can make sure I do not look frazzled when I go out.

This fantastic deal is available for today only. If you are looking for some great storage solutions and need a break on furniture prices, then I highly encourage you pick up a few of these matching pieces. As they are black with wicker baskets, they should match most home decors.

All Future Shop Stores Officially Closed!

All Future Shop Stores Officially Closed!

On Saturday, countless Future Shop employees got a huge shock upon heading over for their daily shifts. Instead of open doors, they were faced with signs labelled: “this store is permanently closed” as most Future Shop stores will be re-branded as Best Buy. Future Shop’s website is currently no more but all pending orders will be executed regardless.

Back in 2001, Best Buy, a store that we have all come to love and shop at, bought Future Shop. It would have made sense to convert all Future Shop stores to Best Buy ones back then but for some reason, it took nearly 15 years to do so! In fact, 65 Future Shop stores are set to re-open as Best Buy ones within a week with the goal of improving business.

With Target in the midst of withdrawing from Canada, the sudden closing of another major store is definitely major news but what is shocking though isn’t so much that most Future Shop will officially and finally be switching to Best Buy ones, a move that makes sense considering that for a while, nearly all deals and sales have been identical at both stores, but it’s the fact that 500 full-times and as many as 1,000 part-time jobs will be lost as a result.

Although some of the Future Shop stores will simply be converted to Best Buy stores, a restructuring effort that is set to cost up to 350-million dollars, other Future Shop stores that are just in too close proximity to a Best Buy store, will simply be closed. No word either on what will happen to those locations.

Moosers, how will this affect you? Do you know someone who will be losing their job?

Best Buy Canada: Marley Jammin Revolution On-Ear Headphones Were $20 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Best Buy Canada: Marley Jammin Revolution On Ear Headphones Were $20 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Looking for a nice pair of headphones with a very slim price? Check out the final clearance on the Marley Jammin Revolution on-ear headphones that were $19.97 and now $9.97.

Of course you can go and buy all the top lines of headphones and spend lots of money, but if you want a pair that will get you from A to B in the audio world, I think these Marley headphones are great. They look stylish with a Marley-esque design on the interior. They are also made from eco-friendly materials like recycled plastic with a recyclable aluminum housing.

Meant to be played with the bass up loud, you’ll have One Love while you’re Jammin’ with these headphones on.

There are six reviews with a total rating of 3.5 stars out of five. While that isn’t super high, I don’t know what you’d expect from $10 headphones? Performance and value are rated highly while ergonomics and comfort are on the lower end. The most negative review says these broke after a few months, but the most positive reviews really like these headphones:

These headphones are pretty good. This is my first over-ear purchase in a long time and the quality is great. Being a Marley product, the first tracks I played after getting them were some Bob Marley classics!

I couldn’t find these for sale in Canada, but I did find them in the States and the regular and sale prices were all much higher than Best Buy’s $19.97 regular price. For example, Walmart in the U.S. sells them for over $31. Even Amazon.com has them for over $30. So, while this might seem like only a 50% off deal, it could actually be worth quite a bit more.

Free shipping happens at Best Buy when you spend $25, so you might want to see what else you can add to your cart so you don’t pay shipping fees. For me, the shipping fees were $5.99. You could also stock up and get a pair or two for friends (so you all match ;)).
