Cogito Classic Smartwatch Was $150 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 27, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Cogito Classic Smartwatch Was $150 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Here is an elegant smartwatch that can keep you connected with simplicity. The Cogito Classic Smartwatch is on sale for today only. Originally $150, you can grab it now for only $49.99. This item also qualifies for completely free shipping.

Do you remember watching shows like the Jetsons and Star Trek? I remember thinking, “Wow! The future will be awesome.” Every day we get one-step closer to that flying car, I hope. While I wait for my spaceship and flying car, I can pass the time playing secret agent with this nifty smartwatch.

The Cognito watch is available in both black and orange. Using Bluetooth, you connect it to either your phone or tablet and then important alerts are pushed to your watch. You can choose what types of messages alert you including text messages, phone calls and other apps. This watch has a classic look, but with the alert system includes a modern edge. Tap the screen to clear alerts. This is perfect for anyone who feels that they spend too much time on their device, but still needs to be connected. Sometimes it can be tough to unplug from our devices completely. A smart watch like this lets us stay connected without being distracted by 55 Facebook game invites.

This watch seems to be available almost everywhere at a much higher price. Costco Canada sells these smart watches for $174.99 each. Walmart.ca has these smart watches for $199.97. Staples Canada is selling this same watch for $199.98. Amazon.ca is selling these watches through a secondary seller for $199.  Chapters Indigo has this watch for $199. The Source also has this watch for $199.99. This price at Best Buy Canada is awesome in comparison.

I had trouble finding reviews anywhere on these watches. Of all the retailers that carry this watch, only Costco had a single consumer review, and that user was unfortunately disappointed with the visibility of the indicators. Here is a nice review over at PC Magazine that will give you the full lowdown on this watch.

This deal is only good for today. If you have been thinking about trying out a smart watch, now is a great time to give it a go at this amazing price. I think this is a great beginner smart watch. Watches also make nice Father’s Day presents!

Simple Sleep Memory Foam Pillow 2 Pack (Standard or Contoured) Was $100 | Now $35 + Free Shipping @ BestBuy.ca

Posted by on May 26, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Simple Sleep Memory Foam Pillow 2 Pack (Standard or Contoured) Was $100 | Now $35 + Free Shipping @ BestBuy.ca

You deserve a good night sleep. Perhaps the Simple Sleep Memory Foam Pillows from Best Buy Canada will help. These pillows come in a two pack and are on sale from $100 down to just $34.99. Choose between contoured or standard, whichever helps you sleep at night. You will even get free shipping.

I have tried to sleep with curved pillows before, and I didn’t like it. So personally, I would snag the Simple Sleep Memory Foam Standard Pillows for $34.99. These pillows have a greater discount than the Simple Sleep Memory Foam Contoured Pillows anyway. While the standard pillows were originally priced at $100, the contoured pillows were priced at $80 before these discounts. The pillows even have a washable cover. This will come in handy if your husband drools at night and causes that yucky yellow tinge to appear on your pillows. Even though he denies it. We know the truth, don’t we ladies?

As for the Simple Sleep Memory Foam Standard Pillows, they are designed to cradle your head so you can rest easily and comfortably. They are filled with premium memory foam and will adapt to the natural curve of your spine and neck so that you get the support you need while sleeping. Getting a restful sleep is so important.

The Simple Sleep Memory Foam Contoured Pillows have many of the same qualities, but also a few differences. The design of these contoured pillows is supposed to ease pressure on your body while you sleep. They are shaped to support your head and neck without any effort. They have low-profile memory foam and offer a medium to firm support level. However, I found these pillows wanted me to sleep in one position only. Any other way I tossed and turned was uncomfortable, and I move a lot. If you prefer to switch up your sleeping positions frequently, I suggest the standard pillows as opposed to these contoured pillows… but everyone is different of course.

The Best Buy Canada website has a few sparse reviews on these pillows, but you can check out even more reviews at Amazon Canada. As Kristy mentioned in her previous post about these pillows, they tend to have a chemical odour to them when they come out of the package. I suggest giving them a quick wash with your favourite scented detergent, and voila. At Amazon.ca you would be looking at spending the same amount on just one pillow! So really, this is sort of like a 2-for-1 deal in that sense. These savings are only available online but since your purchase will be over $25, you will get free shipping too.

Simple Sleep Double Folding Box Spring Frame Was $170 | Now $60 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 23, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Simple Sleep Double Folding Box Spring Frame Was $170 | Now $60 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

A bed frame and box spring in one, this durable folding box spring frame will help you sleep like a baby. This frame was $169.99 but is currently on sale for $59.99. This deal also meets the minimum for completely free shipping.

My husband and I have moved more times than I can count due to his work. The last time I moved, it was from a high-rise apartment to a condo. The elevator ended up backed up and our box spring and mattress ended up carried down eight stories. This put some significant stress on both our movers and on our box spring. Moving season is coming up this summer, and I am happy to say we are staying put this year.

If you move frequently or need a quick and easy bed solution, you should consider this double folding box spring frame today. This metal frame folds for easy storage, but when extended is a frame for a full sized bed. You will not need a box spring for this frame, simply slide your mattress on top and you have replaced both your box springs and bed frame. This frame is a durable steel frame that can hold up to 750 pounds. Included is a washable cover to hide the metal frame and give your bed a less industrial look. I bet you could also throw a bed skirt over top of that cover. Included also is brackets so you can attach your own headboard to the frame. This is ideal for those of you who like DIY projects and are interested in making your own headboard. If you need some inspiration, here are 40 headboards you can make by bedtime over at DIY & Crafts.

Walmart.ca had this exact frame, but it is currently out of stock. The listed price for this exact frame is $178. A very similar model created by the brand Structures by Malouf is available for $149.99 at Amazon.ca. You could also buy a similar folding frame in a full size made by KB Furniture at Lowes.ca for $316. This price at Best Buy is ideal.

There are no current reviews for this frame. The only complaints I have seen with this style of frame is that sometimes they squeak, but no one has made that comment about this brand and model. Most people seem thrilled how quickly and easily this style of bed sets up when looking at the reviews written for other brands.

This price is a steal for this durable frame, so I would suggest grabbing this deal while you can. I did have a few issues with the checkout where it told me the item was not available for delivery. After fussing with my zip code and address the order processed with free shipping for both a Toronto and Montreal address all the way up the final payment stage. This is bed is ideal for students, those who move often, a kid’s bed or even a spare bedroom.

HMDX Jam Touch Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Was $50 | Now $20 (FS @ $25+) @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 22, 2015 at 8:55 AM

HMDX Jam Touch Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Was $50 | Now $20 (FS @ $25+) @ Best Buy Canada

Make sure your music travels with you with the HMDX Touch Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. This handy little speaker in blue or red was $49.99, but you can grab it on sale now for only $19.99. You will save 60% off the retail cost!

According to The Financial Post, in 2013 between 75% and 91% of Canadian households are reporting owning at least one cell phone. Depending on where you live that stat can change. Those numbers are high and have probably only climbed since then. I think it is a safe bet to say mobile devices are part of our daily lives. The stat does not include tablets and other portable devices that also have music, games and interactive video calling.

Get the most out of your device by picking up the HMDX Jam Touch Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. This powerful little speaker has a 30-foot connectivity radius allowing you to connect your phone or another Bluetooth-enabled device with ease. You can listen to music with this speaker for  five hours of battery time. You can also use this for video chats, as it has an internal microphone. We are always hooking up our little speakers when we video call with friends and family. My speakers have a wire and it is a pain to try to juggle the speaker and the phone while keeping my daughter in the frame. This wireless speaker is available in colours red or blue.

When I started writing this post, both colours of speakers were showing savings of $30. For some reason, the red speaker is currently showing savings of $10 while the blue speaker is showing savings of $30 even though they are the same model. I think $50 is the original retail value of these speakers, with $30 being the “regular” sale price. Here are some comparable prices in the rest of the Canadian market to show you what I mean. Bed Bath and Beyond Canada has these speakers currently on sale for $37.49.  You will spend $59.99 at The Source Canada and your colour choices are blue, grey or purple. At Toys R Us Canada, I found a similar HMDX Jam portable speaker that is retailing for $49.99. The deal over at Best Buy Canada is looking sweet.

Best Buy Canada offers free shipping for all orders over $25. If you need a filler to qualify for free shipping, I would suggest heading over into the Viva shop through deals and shops at the top of your browser. I found a bottle of Desert Essence Organics Conditioner that was $9.99 but is now only $5.99 and would be a great filler to bring your total cost up to qualify for free shipping. Alternatively, you could also have this shipped to store free.

I did not find very many reviews on this speaker in Canada. I did find some reviews on this brand through some publications in the states, and most reviews were saying HMDX is a leader for the lower cost speakers. If you want a speaker with decent sound, but with a less expensive price tag than this speaker is a great pick. This would also make a great gift for Father’s Day, especially for the dad who is hard to buy for.

Today Only! Sportcraft Backpack Gazebo Was $110 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 20, 2015 at 12:18 PM

Today Only! Sportcraft Backpack Gazebo Was $110 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Today only at Best Buy Canada you can pick up the Sportcraft Backpack Gazebo. This cool shade on a hot summer day was $109.99 but is now only $54.99. This item also qualifies for completely free shipping.

Here is a sweet little deal for all of your upcoming summer fun. Sometimes in the summer, you find yourself regularly in the blazing sun with no shade. I personally hover over one of those water bottles with the fan attached just to grab a little cool air. Grab this portable gazebo and you and two friends will be sitting pretty in the shade.

This is a personal size gazebo and clocks in at two meters by two meters, or roughly six and a half feet by six and a half feet. Included on the case are backpack straps so you can easily haul this gazebo wherever you are going. That leaves your hands free to carry your camping chair or pull your cooler along.  This gazebo is lightweight, weighing only 18 lbs and is both UV coated and waterproof. This product is freestanding, but also comes with all the ties to stake down this gazebo. You and up to two friends can sit comfortably under this canopy with your cooler.

Here is a list of reasons why you need this gazebo:

  • Shade for your day at the beach
  • The soccer fields never have shade
  • If your kid plays baseball, there is never shade there either
  • Perfect for the jazz festival or another festival where you hang out all day
  • Bring it with you camping
  • Perfect for an outdoor fundraiser
  • Add some comfort to your garage sale
  • Have some shade in your backyard while you wait for those trees you planted to grow

The only place in Canada that carries this exact model of this gazebo is Costco.ca, where you will pay $69.99. If you are looking for an easier-to-carry, lightweight pop-up shelter there is not a whole lot on the market. Over at Amazon.ca, I found a pop-up shelter that is a little bit bigger at 10 feet by 10 feet, and is equipped with a carrying case with handles. This canopy is made by the company Trademark Innovations, and will cost $99.99. I was surprised the camping supply outfitters do not seem to carry these.  Over at Home Depot Canada, I found a larger white slant leg canopy with a size of 8 feet by 8 feet and costs $119.99. Think again if you think Walmart.ca will have a cheaper version. The cheapest canopy I could find there was 10 feet by 10 feet, and it cost $268! Your best bet is the deal at Best Buy Canada.

Your skin will thank you for buying this deal, and so will two of your friends if you decide to share. This deal is only for today. Some of these daily deals at Best Buy are selling out fast lately. If you want one, grab it now!

Paderno 12 Piece Steak Knife Set Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 18, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Paderno 12 Piece Steak Knife Set Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Grab a 12 piece set of Paderno Steak knives over @ Best Buy Canada today. This set was $69.97 but is now on sale for only $29.97. This set also qualifies for free shipping to your home.

My husband was a vegetarian for multiple years. I never made the jump with him. I would eat chicken and seafood when dining out, and we would cook vegetarian at home. When eating a vegetarian diet, we used a chef’s knife much more than a steak knife. The eggplant and portobello mushroom caps that came off our grill did not need much slicing by the time they were finished cooking.

Now that my husband has decided to eat meat again in the last few years, steak knives are becoming more useful. He has been making up for lost time, expanding lately past chicken and fish to ribs and steak. With grilling season here, maybe you have dreams of steaks hot off the grill and friends relaxing on the patio. Grab this Paderno 12 Piece Steak Knife set and you will have enough knives for everyone at your backyard BBQ.

If you are not familiar with Paderno, it is a Canadian brand of cookware that originated on Prince Edward Island. This set includes 12 knives with stainless steel blades. These are riveted knives, and should stay sharp for a while. The handles on these knives are made of polywood, a high-density plastic that mimics wood and is made primarily from recycled plastic bottles. These knives also feature a fantastic 25 year warranty on all parts. You can be sure if a knife cracks or breaks that your set will be covered.

You could pick these up at The Shopping Channel for $47.99.  Wagjag.ca had a deal on a set of twelve of these knives for $49, but the deal is now over. Purchase these knives from Paderno and you will spend $69.99. You are better off picking up these knives on sale at Best Buy Canada.

There is one review over at Best Buy Canada, and they seem happy with the purchase.:

Paderno 12 Piece Steak Knife Set Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

I always end up using my steak knife to spread butter on my bread, so I am glad to hear these knives can do double duty. While it may not be the proper way to eat your roll, when you are eating on the patio you only want to carry one knife for dinner. With a polywood handle, I would not expect this to be a top of the line steak knife set however, this set should see you through your summer steaks without an issue. I also like supporting a Canadian company for my purchase.

Bargainmoosers, what are you throwing on the grill this summer?

Best Buy Canada: McAfee Total Protection 2015 Premium (3 Pc) 1 Year Was $80 | Now $30 + Free Shipping

Posted by on May 18, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Best Buy Canada: McAfee Total Protection 2015 Premium (3 Pc) 1 Year Was $80 | Now $30 + Free Shipping

Best Buy Canada has their Power Hours sale on right now. This promotion goes on for a total of 38 hours and will provide you with great savings on electronics, accessories and software. In particular, the McAfee Total Protection 2015 Premium is on sale from $79.99 down to $29.99. This program can be installed on 3 different computer, which equals out to $10 per computer or laptop. You’ll even get free shipping.

Everyone knows that with computers and laptops comes viruses. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to rid your device of viruses, so why not prevent the issue altogether? Shop this Best Buy Canada Power Hours sale to get your desired savings on electronics and more. In particular, if you are looking for software to battle and prevent viruses – then check out the McAfee Total Protection 2015 Premium for just $29.99. That is $50 off the regular price of $79.99. Not to mention that this is the lowest price around for this McAfee Total Protection 2015 Premium software. Just take a look at what other Canadian retailers are selling this product for:

So as you can see, this is the lowest price around for this product. I have relied on McAfee to keep my computer safe for years. I prefer them over Norton any day, but that is personal preference of course. From previous blog posts, I can see that Avigayil does not recommend their browser add-on, which I have never tried. She says that it slowed her internet down to a crawl when she had more than 8 tabs open. This software includes the following features:

  • parental controls
  • web-safety tools
  • anti-virus
  • anti-spam features for your inbox
  • McAfee Mobile Security
  • firewall
  • and more

If you have more than one computer in your household, this McAfee program is definitely the way to go. The single computer program is $19.99 which is double what you would pay per computer by making this purchase. This is not simply a download of the program. You will actually receive a box pack for this McAfee program. BestBuy.ca even offers free shipping on all orders over $25, so this item will be sent right to your home with no extra charges.

(Half Price) Spa Sensations 1.5″ Foam Mattress Toppers: Now $30/$35 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 8:00 AM

(Half Price) Spa Sensations 1.5 Foam Mattress Toppers: Now $30/$35 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Not every single blog post we write here on Bargainmoose can be as exciting as cheetah patterned mice or Walking Dead DVDs. Sometimes we have to write about deals that are a little bit more mundane, such as mattress toppers! There’s a pretty good deal on these Spa Sensations foam mattress toppers at Best Buy Canada just now – they’re both half price.

The double mattress topper was $59.99 and it’s now only $29.99. The queen mattress topper was $69.99 and it’s now down to only $34.99. And as these items are above the free shipping threshold, you will also get free Canadian shipping to your home when you buy either one.

Now, in my experience, these type of mattress toppers are not quite the same as getting a full memory foam mattress, they wouldn’t have quite the same comfort level. However, if you have an old mattress, or perhaps a mattress that isn’t incredibly comfortable, then this type of foam mattress topper can be great to throw on top. It’s a budget-friendly way to make that mattress a little more comfy, without breaking the bank and blowing hundreds of dollars on a new memory foam mattress.

I’ve had a look around the interwebs to try and price compare this item, but I cannot find this exact item for sale anywhere else online in Canada. However, in browsing around, I can see that it’s a good price in general. The next up price I found for similar items started at $65 here @ Walmart, and $70 here at Sears. I think that today’s price at Best Buy Canada is very competitive indeed.

Today Only! HALO SleepSack Crib Set Was $100 | Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 14, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Today Only! HALO SleepSack Crib Set Was $100 | Now $40  & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

I have the perfect present for those soon-to-be new parents. The HALO Innovations SleepSack 5 Piece Crib Set Was $99.99 but is on sale today only for $39.99. This item will also meet the minimum for completely free shipping.

The rules on what babies and kids should and should not have are changing all the time. There are plenty of things to fret about as a parent. When should I introduce solid foods? Is my baby spending too much time on their back and not having enough tummy time? A lot has changed when it comes to your child’s bed in the past twenty to thirty years. Help a new parent out and pick up this lovely HALO Innovations SleepSack set. This set includes:

  • SleepSack Swaddle for Newborns who are 6 to 12 lbs.
  • SleepSack Wearable Blanket for babies who are 10 to 18 lbs
  • A crib skirt
  • Two fitted sheets

You may notice this set has no bumpers or comforters on the crib. The cozy cotton sleep sacks will keep baby both comfortable and safe. These sleep sacks were handy when my little one was tiny. The sleep sack designed for newborns has velcro so you can swaddle your baby tightly without having to fight a receiving blanket that will not stay tucked in. Most newborns sleep better when swaddled. My husband, in his exhausted state, threatened to duct tape a blanket closed. Trust me you want that Velcro. The second zip up blanket will keep your kiddo comfortable when they are ready to stop swaddling. Two fitted sheets ensure that when the baby spits up in the middle of the night, you have a backup.

Price Comparison

This particular set is exclusive to Best Buy Canada, which makes it a little harder to compare. I compared the price of the two sleep sacks below at other retailers.

I found the Halo Sleep Sack Innovations Blanket for $29.99 at Amazon Canada.  The  Halo Sleep Sack Innovations Swaddle blanket is $31.99. With just these two items, you are looking at a total of $61.98 at Amazon Canada and that does not include the two sheets and bed skirt.

Over at Toys R Us Canada, a similar HALO Sleepsack is available in cotton for $29.99. A Halo SleepSack Swaddle is currently available on sale for $22.47. That puts your total $52.46 before you purchase the sheets or the bed skirt.

Reviews

Reviews on this set are fantastic, scoring very high reviews from buyers. Here is one very happy review with more details.

Today Only! HALO SleepSack Crib Set Was $100 | Now $40  & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

This is a great deal and makes a great baby present. Pick up this soft cotton set now and you will have plenty of baby snuggles ahead. This product says if you order by 4pm you will receive this by May 15th. I would not wait, some of the Best Buy deals sell out quickly.

Best Buy Canada: Apple iPad Mini 3 16GB Was $440 | Now $340 & Free Shipping *HOT*

Posted by on May 7, 2015 at 11:15 AM

Best Buy Canada: Apple iPad Mini 3 16GB Was $440 | Now $340 & Free Shipping *HOT*

Best Buy Canada has discounted the Apple iPad Mini 3 from $439.99 down to $339.99. Supplies are extremely limited (gold and white already OOS), so I would get in on this offer ASAP.

Just because the white and the gold are out of stock online does not mean you cannot buy them. Both are currently available for reserve in store. This, you can reserve online and merely pick it up at your local Best Buy Canada store for the same price. While I liked to the black above, click these links to reserve your space grey iPad Mini 3 or gold iPad Mini 3.

I price compare all electronics, so here is a composite list of what the 16GB Wi-Fi Apple iPad Mini 3 is retailing for elsewhere. The iPad Mini 3 is also on sale at Staples Canada, but costs $379. Apple Canada has the iPad Mini 3 starting at $439, while Walmart Canada drops that price by $1 down to $438. Chapters Canada has the iPad Mini 3 for $439 and they are not eligible for the Visa Checkout discount either. Even compared to Staples, you are saving an extra $40 or so when you purchase the device at Best Buy Canada.

This is the basic model mini 3. It has 16GB of space, Wi-fi only (no cellular), and a Touch ID fingerprint reader (cool!). The Touch ID fingerprint reader lets you unlock your iPad and make purchased on the device by using your fingerprint as the primary identifier. The mini 3 would be my choice for a new iPad because it is just 7.5mm thin and weighs less than 1 pound. It is light and easy to hold for a long duration.

Other features include:

  • 7.9″ (diagonal) LED backlit Multi-Touch display
  • 2048 x 1536 native resolution at 326 pixels per inch (ppi)
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
  • Dual-Core Apple A7 CPU with M7 Chip
  • Bluetooth 4.0 technology
  • Front and rear cameras

Your device will come preloaded with the latest iOS 8 operating system. It is not often that there are substantial discounts on Apple products, so I am quite delighted to see this sale price. These are selling out very quickly!! Please get one ASAP! If they completely sell out online, then reserve one in store for the same sale price.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Today Only! Safety 1st OnBoard 35 Car Seat Was $162 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 7, 2015 at 8:58 AM

Today Only! Safety 1st OnBoard 35 Car Seat Was $162 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Best Buy has a great sale price today on the Safety 1st OnBoard 35 Infant Car Seat. This seat was $161.99 but is now on sale for $79.99, today only. You will also receive free shipping with this purchase as it meets the minimum requirement of $25.

Best Buy is really pushing their home, baby and beauty line with some great deals lately. This Safety 1st infant car seat is no exception. Before my kid was born, I fretted over what car seat was safest. In the end while not all car seats not created equal, the technology of the leading companies is similar overall. Safety 1st is a known brand that provides many products focused on keeping babies and small children safe.

This particular car seat seems to have been available in many different colours for the seat cover. It is a basic model that seems to be comparable to the Graco Snugride. This seat does work for preemies, which not all seats do. On the low end of the weight limit, this seat will accommodate a baby who weighs as little as 4 lbs. They also note that this seat comes with more legroom than most. If your family is on the tall side, this might be what you need. This seat easily clicks in and out of the base, allowing you to transport your infant easily when they fall asleep in the car. You will also have a one-year warranty on the parts for this seat.

This car seat comes in several different patterns and variations. Other than the pattern on the car seat, cover there does not seem to be many differences comparing the specs side by side. Here is what I found from some of the other retailers.

There are three recent reviews on Best Buy’s website. I noticed the reviews have a higher rating and more reviews at some of the competing retailers. One user noted that the seat is not new on the market, so her car seat expiration was four years instead of six years. I think the only way you can get around that is buying a new seat that is newer on the market. The safety regulations do change quickly, and car seat expirations do not last long to ensure your baby is in the safest seat possible. Here is a happy reviewer.

I have compared many types and brands for my babies car seat, and nothing beats the quality and price of this particular one. I have recommended it to everyone.

If you need a new infant seat, this is a sure bet. You are getting a quality brand car seat that will keep your bundle safe plus a few extra features such as the extra legroom. At this price, it also makes a great second car seat for grandma’s car.

Safety 1st Audio Baby Monitor & Safety Bundle Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 4, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Safety 1st Audio Baby Monitor & Safety Bundle Was $70 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Do you have a baby is on the way? Time to baby proof!  The Safety 1st Audio Baby Monitor & Safety Bundle was $70 but is now on sale for only $30. This item also meets the $25 minimum for completely free shipping!

When you have a new baby joining the family, safety is always on your mind. As you first become a parent you glance around your home and suddenly notice many terrifying things you never noticed before. A rectangular glass coffee table goes from looking chic to imagining bumps and bruises in only a few months. Electrical outlets in your home suddenly look like a frightening place for little fingers.

Whether you have a new baby or just have a baby gift to buy, this Safety First package is a nice little set. Inside the bundle, you will find the following items:

  • Safety First Compact DECT audio monitor with 1000 foot range
  • Two nightlights to keep you from stubbing your toe in the middle of the night
  • Four latches to keep cabinets closed tight from little fingers
  • Nine electrical covers to keep little fingers out of harm
  • Window blind cord wrap to keep strings out of babies reach
  • One year limited warranty on parts

I feel a little safer just writing about all that safety gear! Seriously, this is a nice bundle to get you started kid proofing your home. When I brought my kid home, I had a tiny apartment. Whenever she was sleeping, I kept an audio monitor with me for peace of mind. I also always took a compact monitor similar to this one when I traveled. It was handy when I was visiting my family to have a compact little monitor for my suitcase. I could relax more while she slept knowing I would hear her cry.

I am not finding this exact bundle sold anywhere else in Canada. I did find the baby monitor sold several places. As the monitor should be the most expensive item in the bundle, I thought we could look at the prices for just the monitor only.

Even if you were only interested in the monitor with no interest in any of the other safety products, this bundle is still a better deal. While I do not see any direct reviews for this bundle, Safety First is a known leader in the market for baby proofing safety items. Of all the places I found the monitor, I only see one review. The reviewer liked the monitor overall but said the charger stopped working.  Your new bundle includes a warranty for a year which should give you peace of mind.

Pick this up now and you will be ready for your baby or for your next baby gift. This item is only on sale for a limited amount of time.

Best Buy Canada: $80 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $70 *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada: $80 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $70 *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

*Bumping this post from January as the price is now another $20 cheaper! Get it before it sells out Moosers!*

Mmmmm general tao… why go to a restaurant when you can make your own? But you’re going to need a good knife and if you don’t already have one, then I found a great deal on the Cuisinart 15-pc knife block set at Best Buy. Originally priced at $149.99, you can now save $60 $80 and get it for just $89.99 $69.99.

Using a picture of delicious-looking General Tao when talking about a knife block set may seem like an odd choice but fact of the matter is that you need a good knife when handling meat. I’m not the one who handle the deboning and slicing chore or meat handling in my household, but every time my hubby does it, he makes sure to sharpen his knife beforehand!

The Cuisinart 15-pc knife block set comes with:

  • 8″ chef’s knife
  • 8″ bread knife
  • 5.5″ serrated utility knife
  • 5″ Santoku knife
  • 3.5″ pairing knife
  • Six 4.5″ steak knives
  • Sharpening steel
  • Shears (scissors)
  • Knife block

Just writing about this knife block set is making me want to get it for myself because the blade is made from high-carbon stainless steel and the handle is ergonomically designed. My hubby is a leftie, while I’m a rightie, so it would definitely make things easier for him.

Personally, I would ditch the knife block, however. I have heard it being mentioned numerous times on television daytime shows like The Doctors and Dr. Oz that these are the perfect habitat for bacteria. Perhaps it would be okay to use at first but it should definitely be discontinued after a couple of months.

Price comparing, I found this same knife block set retailing for its full price of $189.99 at Sears.

To get back to the topic of General Tao, if you have never made it yourself, it’s super easy and I definitely recommend General Tsao’s chicken recipe available on All Recipes. If you like cooking completely from scratch, then it’s the perfect recipe to follow or you could just do what I do and buy a bottle of General Tao sauce. Once your chicken is cooked, you simply douse it in the sauce and voila — restaurant quality General Tao! Best Buy Canada: $80 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $70 *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

Shipping Best ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this knife block set shipped to you at no extra cost.

Best Buy Canada: $85 Off Jewellery for Mom – Now $45 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 30, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: $85 Off Jewellery for Mom   Now $45 & Free Shipping

Today only, Best Buy Canada is selling gorgeous Sterling Silver jewellery for Mom. Each piece is now quite affordable as they were $129.99 each and are now on sale for $44.99 with free shipping.

Jewellery makes an excellent Mother’s Day gift and there is still time to buy online and have it shipped to your home or directly to your mother if you do not share the same residence. There are plenty of different shapes and styles of jewellery to pick from – though most are necklaces.

This Classic Sterling Silver Chain with Sterling Silver Heart and 0.10ct Diamond “Mom” Pendant Necklace is an absolute classic style of necklace to buy for your Mom. If she has not received one of these from you yet, then now is the time to fix that. The necklace has a little bit of everything for your Mom. It is specialized for her, has a small diamond inset, and has a sterling silver chain for comfort.

Now, if your Mother already has several of these necklaces, then you should purchase something different. The Pearl Sterling Silver Pendant & Earring Set is one of my favourites because it comes with earrings and pearls are such beautiful gems. The pearls are of a substantial size. The pendant’s pearl measures 10mm x 7mm and is in the shape of a teardrop. The earrings each have a 7-8mm pearl. I do wish it said if these were freshwater pearls or not.

Now, my favourite item is the Sterling Silver with Swarovski Elements Key. Keys became popular when Tiffany & Co. started making their famous key pendants. Well, if your budget cannot afford Tiffany & Co. (mine sure cannot), this is the next best thing. This pretty Sterling Silver Le Reve key pendant will open the locks to any heart. It also is not exactly ‘Mother’s Day-ish’ so you could give this key to your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, or friend.

Each of these sets, and many like them, are on sale from $129.99 down to $44.99. In the sale, there is one set cheaper – the Classic Sterling Silver Chain with Sterling Silver Heart and 0.03ct Diamond Pendant Necklace is on sale from $99.99 down to $39.99. If you brows around the jewellery section at best Buy, you can find many more jewellery deals as well.

Best Buy Canada: $10 Savings Card with $100 Reserve & In-Store Pickup (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 29, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: $10 Savings Card with $100 Reserve & In Store Pickup (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada is giving away $10 savings certificates when you spend $100 or more online, reserve, and then pick up your order in store.

This deal lasts only three days and is designed to encourage people to become familiar with and use the reserve system on Best Buy’s website. It is in the company’s best interest to show people how easy it is to pick up in store as this can save best Buy millions of dollars per year in shipping costs (with their free shipping on $25 offer). In addition, it is a good way for consumers to become familiar with this system for future orders under the free shipping minimum. Unfortunately, you really need to live close to a Best Buy in order for you to take advantage of this deal.

There is a limit of one savings card per order and per customer. The savings card will be emailed within 14 days of your business days of your order to the email address associated with your account. There is no minimum purchase required to use the savings certificate, so you could just use it to get a $10 item free (and then have it sent to the store).

The savings card expires on the 14th of June 2015.

Your order can be practically anything that totals $100 or more (and is available in store). I ran across a fair number of deals that were online only – and those will just not work. Check out the Beats Solo 2 On-Ear Headphones on sale from $229.99 and now only $189.99. The headset is available in six different colours – the blue and the black headsets are my favourite. I like how they combine red with the black.

There are always interesting deals at Best Buy Canada. This Samsung SHAPE 3 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is on sale from $249.99 down to $149.99. The ‘shape’ is designed to fit perfectly in a corner. Thus, it is out of sight but never out of mind as it blasts your awesome tunes. It can also stand on end with a kickstand. This speaker is not available at my local store for pickup, but it should be in larger cities.

Best Buy Canada does not often have deals like this, so I like to blog them when they do.
