Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Cosco Funsport Play Yard – Only $40

Posted by on January 4, 2015 at 1:17 PM

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Cosco Funsport Play Yard   Only $40

Best Buy Canada is selling this Cosco Funsport Play Yard (Brown/Red/Orange) for just $39.99, which is 50% off the original price of $89.99. As the Cosco Play Yard is over $25, it qualifies for free shipping as well.

Future Shop has the same deal on as they are twin stores, but I have a very good reason to blog the deal from Best Buy. Best Buy Canada has a secondary deal on right now where, if you purchase $50 or more worth of toys (and this play yard is somehow included in that), you will receive a free Words With Friends Race Board Game valued at $9.99. You need to add that game to your cart of are buying $50 worth and want the game for free.

This play yard is exceedingly difficult to find in Canada for price comparison purposes. An eBay seller is offering the Cosco Play Yard for $69.99 with free shipping across Canada right now. There is also an Amazon Marketplace seller asking $87.40 plus $47.25 shipping! I checked out prices in the USA and the cheapest I could find was $39.40 US on rollback at Walmart.com (different print) but the regular price was more around $49.50 US to $55.99 US. With the current exchange rate, you are still getting a better deal at Best Buy (not to mention duty).

I asked my colleague Brooke what she thought of this deal as I am not too familiar with children’s accessories and this one is so hard to find in Canada. She said:

That’s good! I am not particularly fond of the brand, but the price is great especially if you are just using it for sleep overs at the in laws or something

She also pointed out that other brands, like Graco, tend to be much more expensive for similar units.

If you are on a budget and need a great little play pen (as they used to be called in my days), then this is the unit for you. The colours are a nice neutral and perfect for either gender. The floorboard is padded for comfort and safety. There are four mesh panels so you can always see your little one as well. The playpen also features wheels so you can easily glide the play yard from room to room when baby is sleeping. A carry bag is included so you can transport the pen for family visits or travel.

Misfit Flash Activity & Sleep Tracker Just $30 | Was $50 @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada

Posted by on January 2, 2015 at 9:30 PM

Misfit Flash Activity & Sleep Tracker Just $30 | Was $50 @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada

Smart watches are all the rage lately and if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, then both Best Buy and Future Shop have a fantastic deal on the Misfit Flash wireless activity and sleep tracker. Right now, you can get one of these trackers for just $29.99 instead of their regular price of $49.99.

As you can see on the picture above, it’s not a smart watch per se but it’s comparable to one as it tracks physical activity, along with sleep duration and quality. Once the tracker is turned on, twelve little lights will serve to illustrate your level of activity.

The Misfit Flash can most notably track:

  • number of calories burnt
  • number of miles/km travelled
  • duration of sleep
  • quality of sleep

It’s also waterproof up to 30 meters and you won’t have to worry about wearing it during wet conditions. The battery should last you up to 6 months, though according to one reviewer, it lasts 3 months. Keep in mind that it needs to be synced with a smart phone for optimal tracking as you will then be able to track your progress with fitness stats and daily goals.

A couple of reviewers have noted that this is a great tracker with the only drawback being that the wrist band is perhaps not made from the best material. Considering the price, this is a factor that can be easily overlooked, especially since this tracker may also be clipped nearly anywhere like on a shirt, inside a pocket and even on your shoe! Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I bought this to test out the accuracy of a wearable fitness monitor, before plunking down bigger bucks on something fancier. I am pleasantly surprised at its accuracy so far, even the sleep monitor component. The watch band isn’t the greatest quality but you get what you pay for.

It’s also available in the following colours: black, white, pink, blue, reef green or white.

Since both Best Buy and Future Shop ships orders totalling over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this nifty gadget shipped at no extra cost as well.

Best Buy/ Future Shop Canada: Wii U Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set Just $250 (Was $300)

Posted by on December 29, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Best Buy/ Future Shop Canada: Wii U Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set Just $250 (Was $300)

Ready to make the leap into the land of the Nintendo Wii U? Both Best Buy and Future Shop have discounted it by $50. Until the first day of the new year, you can get it for just $249.99, instead of its original price of $299.99.

The last time that we saw the Nintendo Wii U go down in price to just $250 was all the way back in the third week of November during Toys R Us’ Moonlight Sale and even then, the sale only lasted two hours! Even Best Buy’s and Future Shop’s discount aren’t that long-lasting as you can only secure them during the next couple of days. Everywhere else, this console is still priced at its full price of $299.99.

This Nintendo Wii U deluxe set comes with the console itself, a sensor bar, a gamepad, and the Super Mario 3D World game. Other accessories like a gamepad stand and all of the necessary wiring are also included.

I bought this exact same set last year and I LOVE it. Super Mario 3D World is a super fun game to play, especially as a team with someone else or even a couple of friends and will most definitely keep you entertained for days, if not months like in my case. Plus, once you have officially beat the game, there are a couple of bonus levels to keep you entertained just a little while longer.

Unlike the PlayStation and Xbox consoles, a major perk of getting the Wii U is that it’s backwards compatible. This means that if you have the previously released the version, the Wii, then you could still continue to use the games that you already have. This is a major advantage, especially if you have a large collection of Wii games just sitting, waiting to be played.

Since both Best Buy and Future Shop ship orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get your brand new toy delivered at no extra charge as well! Best Buy/ Future Shop Canada: Wii U Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set Just $250 (Was $300)

Moosers, do you have a Nintendo Wii U? Which games would you recommend?

$90 Off Sennheiser RS126 II – Now $89.99 @ Best Buy & Future Shop

Posted by on December 25, 2014 at 12:10 PM

$90 Off Sennheiser RS126 II   Now $89.99 @ Best Buy & Future Shop

Best Buy and Future Shop are selling the Sennheiser RS 126 II Wireless On-Ear Headphones for just $89.99, saving you $90 (50%) off the original price for Boxing Week.

Its rather funny looking at Future Shop and Best Buy because each quotes a different discount. Best Buy says the headset is $90 off, and Future Shop says the headset is $50 off. I think that Best Buy might be right in this instance as my price comparisons show that this headset goes for quite the price at most retailers:

  • $179.99 @ Dell Canada
  • $199.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $199.99 @ The Source (older version)
  • $129.99 @ London Drugs (older version)

The only place I could find that matched the twins’ price was Amazon Canada at $89.99 on a lightning deal. As Best Buy and Future Shop have this deal on until the 28th, I figured this was the better place to find the headset.

I have been looking for a wireless headset for some time. While I love my Denon headset, sometimes wires are terribly inconvenient and I just want to listen without tangling myself up in a cord. I decided on Sennheiser a while ago because they make such a large variety of wireless headsets to suit all budgets. The Sennheiser RS126 II is the second edition (note that) of this headset. It features an open, supra-aural wireless RF headphone system giving detailed sound reproduction and good strong base.

The wireless headset can communicate with your MP3 player or phone up to 100 meters. The headphones come with a transmitter with metal cradle for storing and recharging the headphones. Rechargeable AAA NiMH batteries are also included. The headphones are also very lightweight making them comfortable to wear for long durations.

The main negative thing I have heard is that there is static. However, with four channels you should be able to tune that out. It could also be due to interference if you are using many Bluetooth products in your house. This reviewer said:

If you want to get rid of the burden of cables this option is optimal. Sound quality is great and headphones are very comfortable. I use them in the office to listen to music, not to wear them while walking around the house. The manufacturer’s stated usable range is about right, so watching TV or listening to music in the same room is not a problem.

Overall, I think these are a very good buy for the money you are spending. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Sennheiser HD 335 Headphones Was $150 | Now $69.99 @ Best Buy *HOT*

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 9:12 PM

Sennheiser HD 335 Headphones Was $150 | Now $69.99 @ Best Buy *HOT*

I am pretty stoked to see a fair quality headset included in the hot Best Buy and Future Shop deals that just were released. Pick up these Sennheiser HD 335s Headphones for just $69.99, originally $149.99.

As they are twin companies, you get the same deal from both big stores. If the headset sells out at one you can buy it at the other store. Now, this headset is really hard to find in Canada so a lot of the price comparisons you see below are from the USA:

  • $112.86 US @ Amazon.com
  • $119.95 US @ Sennheiser
  • $119.99 US @ Bestbuy.com
  • $168.30 + $ 7.78 @ Amazon.ca Marketplace

That is the beast I could do on a price comparison for this unit, so I am pretty pleased with this deal.

While the title calls these on-ear headphones, the description says “over the ear” on Best Buy Canada. There is a big difference between those two models, so I am curious as to what model this is – I am assuming it is over the ear given the size of the closed ear cups. The right ear-cup rotates, which is perfect for one-ear listening in studio settings or for performances. I had a pair of Shure headphones that cost a LOT more than this with a rotating ear-cup. Even though I do not have a studio, the ear-cup was nice for being able to listen to my music and get interrupted at the same time.

The headset also has these funky features:

  • Integrated omnidirectional microphone
  • In-line remote
  • Embedded volume dial located on the ear cup

Expect amazing sound with 14Hz – 20kHz frequency response, 112dB sensitivity, and 32 ohms impedance. They also passively block out a good deal of noise so you can enjoy your music without the sound of screaming children interrupting the process.

This headset is going to give you a lot for the price you are paying. At only $70, I cannot think of a better headset to spend your money on.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

$72 Off – Beats by Dr. Dre Pill 2.0 Only $148 @ Visions Electronics *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 8:31 PM

$72 Off   Beats by Dr. Dre Pill 2.0 Only $148 @ Visions Electronics *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Hurry over to Visions Electronics and score the highly sought after Beats by Dr. Dre Pill 2.0 come in for Boxing Day. Originally $219.99, the Pill 2.0 is on sale for $148 with free shipping at Visions Electronics.

This is one of the big-ticket sale item so many stores but NONE can beat Visions Electronics price. Unfortunately, the black is only available in store and the silver is not included in the sale. However, you do still have three coulours to choose from including the celebrity inspired pink that is sold out on most websites (like Future Shop and Best Buy)

I price compared this unit with other stores. While also on sale at many other stores, Visions was the best as you can see:

  • $169.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $169.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $179.94 @ Staples Canada
  • $219.99 @ NCIX.com
  • $197.96 @ Microsoft Store Canada
  • $219.95 @ Apple Store Canada
  • $169.99 @ Amazon Canada

This is a small but loud external speaker. They come with all the features you would expect in a speaker including a seven-hour rechargeable battery and a charge out port so you can charge your phone or MP3 player while listening. The Beat Pills also have a cool tap feature where you can tap two Pills together once to get them to play the same song simultaneously. Tap two pills together twice and one will become a left speaker and the other a right speaker. Enjoy instant surround sound.

As one reviewer says:

This is one of those speakers that you’ll actually want to carry with you. It looks good, fits in your pocket and delivers loud sound relative to its size.

All of these cute little Dr. Dre Pills come with free shipping from Visions Electronics. The Visions sale is massive, and I really look forward to seeing what else they have to offer!

Best Buy: 75% Off iHome iW2 Wireless Speaker ONLY $49.99 *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Best Buy: 75% Off iHome iW2 Wireless Speaker ONLY $49.99 *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Oh holy mother of pearl I am in love! Best Buy Canada just opened up their Boxing Day sale. Make sure to get your hands on the iHome iW2 Wireless Speaker (IW2SVC) for just $49.99, originally $199.99! You save $150, which is just breathtaking and you will also receive free shipping.

I do not need a new wireless speaker: I just bought the Sony SRS-X5 and I own the more portable Carbon Audio Zooka. However, need and want often do not align. I want this beautiful wireless speaker so badly. First, this is different from anything I own, as it does not operate via Bluetooth. Rather, the iHome iW2 uses Airplay to transmit your music and more over your home Wi-Fi.

The primary benefit of using your Wi-Fi connection over Blutooth is a better connection between the speaker and your MP3 player (or phone) wherever you are in the house. Most Bluetooth speakers have a range of 10 meters, or 30-feet. With a Wi-fi speaker, you can stream music from any part of your house that your Wi-Fi connection reaches. There will be no music stuttering, breaking up, or suddenly stopping because you went a couple feet too far or popped into the bedroom.

While this wireless iHome speaker is designed to stay at home and meld seamlessly with your home Wi-Fi network, it does come with a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This gives you the option of moving the iW2 speaker into the kitchen, the bathroom, or the bedroom at your convenience without having to bring the plug. The speaker’s battery will last up to five-hours unplugged.

The iHome iW2 will also charge your iPhone, iPod or iPad via a USB docking station and comes with a USB sync cable. Furthermore, there is an iOS app designed to work with the speaker and your iOS devices to create the best sound possible. According to reviews, you can also plug an android phone in to the base.

This unit is an absolute steal at this price. Amazon currently has the black model on sale for $136.98 and you just do not see AirPlay wireless speakers for the $50 range.

As this speaker costs over $25, it will ship for free. Enjoy this deal and many other great offers during the Best Buy Boxing Day sale.

Best Buy Canada: $150 Off Refurbished Xbox One Console With Kinect + 2 Digital Games – Just $350 (Starts @ 8pm)

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: $150 Off Refurbished Xbox One Console With Kinect + 2 Digital Games   Just $350 (Starts @ 8pm)

Starting at 8pm EST tonight, the Xbox One 500GB console with Kinect will be dropping in price to just $349.99! Its original price is of $499.99 and it also comes with a free digital download of Ryse: Son of Rome.

It may be refurbished but this deal is guaranteed to fly off the shelves at it’s a whopping $150 discount! Refurbished is nothing to be scared of since you can rest assured that the product will function just as well or perhaps even better than a regular one. Plus, even if it doesn’t, you can just bring it back to the store. This console has a 90-day manufacturer’s limited warranty. Plus considering that video consoles are rather pircey at regular price, buying them refurbished is one of the best ways to save money. If you’re buying it for your kids, then you could just tell them that Santa ran a little late on delivering all the presents this year. Best Buy Canada: $150 Off Refurbished Xbox One Console With Kinect + 2 Digital Games   Just $350 (Starts @ 8pm)

On its own, an Xbox One console typically retails for $399.99 and $499.99 with Kinect, so just $350 for both the console, Kinect and even a free digital copy of a game definitely pushes this deal over the edge.

The promotional picture shows that this console also comes with a digital download of Ryse: Son of Rome but according to the description, it also comes with a digital copy of Dance Central Spotlight.

Since Best Buy ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this console delivered at no extra cost. You might also be able to reserve it in-stores. If it’s available at your nearest Best Buy, then it might be a good idea to line up in the wee hours of Boxing Day morning just to make sure that your snag yourself a copy.

If you plan on taking advantage of this deal, then make sure to also pick up an extra Xbox One controller as the console only comes with one. Earlier today, Avi blogged about a deal at The Source, where it’s currently $39.99 instead of its usual price of $59.99.

Best Buy Boxing Day Flyer Released! (Sales On 24-28 Dec 2014)

Posted by on December 21, 2014 at 7:50 AM

Best Buy Boxing Day Flyer Released! (Sales On 24 28 Dec 2014)

Yesterday I wrote about a short-lived deal where you could get $25 off $100 online @ BestBuy. It didn’t last for long so I hope some of you got in on the action. If you did not, perhaps you’ll be interested in the Boxing Day sales flyer which they have just released!!

The flyer deals aren’t yet available online – the official sale is due to start at 8PM EST on the 24th of December 2014. So, if you’re interested in bagging the bargains early, make sure you are online for the start of the sale.

If you’re going to brave the Boxing sales in-store, you’ll want to be there at 6am (!) on the 26th. I’m afraid I will probably have a little too much wine in my system to be out and about that that hour of the day.

Anyway, there are a lot of deals in this 39 page flyer, so have a read of it yourself. As usual here on Bargainmoose, we like to highlight a few of the items to show you how good or bad the deals actually are.

Sony 60″ 1080p LED Smart TV (KDL60R510B) – was $1399.99 will be $999.99 – This HUGE TV will be reduced by a further $400 on the marked price just now. I cannot seem to find the exact model on their site just now, I can only see the model ending in A, so they might update that before the actual sale. The web code shows this TV, so it could be that model and just a typo in the flyer. This TV is around $1300 everywhere else.

HP 15.6″ Touchscreen Laptop – was $699.99 will be $449.99 – This looks like a pretty decent little laptop for the price. Spec wise, it’s a AMD Quad-Core A8-6410 APU processor with 8GB of RAM. It has a 750GB hard drive, which should be pretty good for home use.

For those who are more of the Apple persuasion, there’s a silver Apple 13.3″ MacBook Air on offer – down from $1199.99 and it will be $999.99. I’m a PC girl so my knowledge on Macs is slightly lacking, but from the spec I can see that this is a 1.3GHz dual core Intel Core i5 processor and it also comes with 8GB of RAM. Similar in spec to the HP laptop I’ve mentioned above, but twice the price!!

For a slightly smaller TV, the Black LG 32″ 720p 60Hz LED TV (32LB520B) is now $299.99 and it will be dropping by a further $70 down to $229.99 with free shipping. Shweet price for a little TV! I remember 15 years ago when a 32” TV was considered to be a fairly large TV… but not any more! This LG TV only seems to be sold by Future Shop and Best Buy, I cannot see it priced anywhere else.

Remember, I’ve price compared all of the above deals as of TODAY. Competitors prices are going to change over the course of the Boxing Day sales, so make sure you price compare again, if you are actually buying anything.

Here are a few of the first pages of the flyer, but you can see them all here.

Best Buy Canada: Get $25 off $100+ Spend! QUICK, HOT!!! (EXPIRED!)

Posted by on December 20, 2014 at 10:06 AM

Here’s a hot promo which doesn’t seem to be advertised on Best Buy’s site, but you can see it when you pop something in your cart. Order merchandise of $100 or more, and you will be able to choose either a free $25 gift card or $25 online credit!

The $25 online credit can clearly be seen in your shopping cart as you can see from my screenshot below:

Best Buy Canada: Get $25 off $100+ Spend! QUICK, HOT!!! (EXPIRED!)

If you want to make sure that this is not an error and you want to get your goodies as soon as possible, place your order online and set it to “collect at store.” Nip in-store, pick up your items, and voila!

The $25 free credit seems to be applicable to full priced items and sale priced items too, I am not sure of any exclusions.

As an example, I added the Sphero 2 to my cart, which is $109.99. It comes down to only $84.99! In price comparing elsewhere, I can see that this item is $110+ everywhere else.

The $25 off $100 also seems to apply to gift cards, which is more than likely an error. If you want to make sure that there’s some chance of Best Buy actually honouring an order you’ve placed, don’t order gift cards. You’d be better ordering products and seeing if they accept your orders. You can always try it on gift cards if you like, it’s not costing you anything – but in my opinion, they’re more than likely to cancel those orders. Gift card example:

Best Buy Canada: Get $25 off $100+ Spend! QUICK, HOT!!! (EXPIRED!)

This $25 off $100 makes many items on Best Buy to be really hot deals!

Best Buy: $9 Off Oral-B CrossAction Power Toothbrush & Extra Heads – $7.99

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 1:02 PM

Best Buy: $9 Off Oral B CrossAction Power Toothbrush & Extra Heads   $7.99

Best Buy Canada is offering a few sweet toothbrush deals to clean those sweets out of your teeth this holiday season. My favourite deal is an Oral-B CrossAction Power Whitening Battery-Powered Toothbrush for just $7.99 (save $9). The set includes one toothbrush with head plus two extra replacement brush heads.

I price compared this toothbrush with Well.ca. Well.ca sells the Oral-B CrossAction Power Toothbrush for $11.99 regular price, but has them on sale for $9.59 each right now. The only difference is this one has a whitening head while Well.ca is selling an anti-microbal head. The brush also costs $13.99 at Amazon Canada but is out of stock. Neither of those include the replacement heads, which retail for around $10 – $13. Now, Walmart has the toothbrush alone on sale for $6.96, but the replacement brush heads would cost you another $6.96 on sale for a total of $13.92.

This is a lot like the toothbrush my husband uses. It has the round small head on top that rotates and a bottom brush that jives up and down to give your teeth a better clean. The dentist recently told me that I should consider using a power toothbrush instead of the manual ones I so dearly love. I do not like the vibration from the power toothbrushes; however, it has been years since I have tried one so they might be much better now.

I think this is a good deal because it totally sets you up for nearly a year with the toothbrush body and three heads. Also, replacement heads are unusually the most expensive thing about owning a battery-powered tooth brush as you are always replacing them, so I like that you get a good supply initially.

I also wanted to remind people of the amazing toothbrush deal that Margarita posted a few days ago. A 2-pack of Oral-B Pro-Health precision clean toothbrushes is on sale for just $12.99, you save $17. Both deals are certainly worth purchasing.

Right now, Best Buy also has their buy more save more program on that will combine with these discounts.

  1. Buy three (3) take 10% off
  2. Buy five (5) take 15% off
  3. Buy eight (8) or more take 20% off

On top of that, if you spend $100 or more on Viva products, you can buy a Pearl necklace valued at $130, for just $9.99. See the website for promotion details.

Orders of $25 or more ship for free from Best Buy Canada.

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

The other day we blogged about this massager and what a great deal it was at Best Buy for $34.99 and now it is is $29.99 at Future Shop. If you didn’t get it then, you might want to today at this cheaper price! It has a regular price of $99.99.

Well, I was going to blog this deal for you that I found at The Source, until when price comparing, I found it even cheaper right now at Best Buy!

With the stress of the holidays looming on my back, I really need a massage! Unfortunately for me, my benefits have run out so I need to wait just a few more weeks to get one and get reimbursed for it. In the meantime, my aching back and shoulders are screaming out for some relief and hubby’s hands just don’t cut it. But, I could pass him this massager and get him to do it with that. I think that would really help get some knots out.

I’d also love this for my middle son, who has trouble getting to sleep and deep pressure works wonders on him. Instead of using my hands, I could massage his back with this. It says it gives 3,000 pulses per minute, which sounds pretty good to me. I can even do it myself as there is an extension arm.

It has really great reviews like:

I bought the body massager for my aching legs. They work really well as I feel better after massaging my legs. They are also great for all over body massage, specially the back. I got this on sale from Best Buy for half price. Lucky me. The only cons was the 3″ arm extension. If you try to close it fast, part of your hand can get caught and will hurt you. But once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll always remember to close it slowly. Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Handheld Massager Was $99 | Now $30 *Bump*

It sells at Walmart for $78, at Well.ca for $99 and at The Source on sale right now for $50.

Another way you can tell when something is a hot deal is that it goes in my cart, and this one did. I know Best Buy ships quickly so I think I’ll get this by Christmas even though I didn’t get any shipping details. It will also ship for free being over the $25 minimum.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 Only $39.99 @ Best Buy or Future Shop (EXPIRED)

Borderlands: The Pre Sequel for PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 Only $39.99 @ Best Buy or Future Shop (EXPIRED)

Christmas Holidays might leave you with a little more spare time than usual, so why not have some fun and try out the Borderlands: The Pre Sequel game for either the PC, Xbox 360 or the PS3. Right now both Best Buy and Future Shop have this particular Borderlands game title on sale, with a regular price of $59.99, for $39.99.

This game can be enjoyed by anyone who has a computer, PlayStation 3 or an Xbox 360. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2. You will witness the villain Handsome Jack transform into a power hungry tyrant. There are four playable characters which include Wilhelm the Enforcer, Nisha the Lawbringer, Claptrap the goofy robot companion and Athene the Gladiator. Do you remember these guys as your bosses in the previous Borderlands games?

I did a little price comparison to ensure that you really were getting the best deal from Best Buy Canada and Future Shop, so have a look:

Borderlands The Pre-Sequel is $59.96 @ Walmart.ca
Borderlands The Pre-Sequel is $54.99 @ Coscto.ca

This first person shooter was released on the 14th of October, 2014 so it is fairly new to be discounted so drastically. The story line seems to focus on Jack, who happens to be your enemy in Borderlands 2. This game does have some new features since Borderlands 2  though, like laser guns and items that possess a cyrogenic element. This effect can slow down and even freeze your enemies.

I’m not generally a first person shooter type of gal, but I do enjoy the Borderlands games I have tried. I have yet to try this pre-sequel but I wouldn’t mind giving it a shot for this price. If you have tried this game, let us know what you think.

Whether you decide to shop at Best Buy or Future Shop Canada, you will also attain free shipping. Shipping is fast too, fast enough to have the game at your door in time to be wrapped up under the Christmas tree. The Best Buy and Future Shop holiday order deadline is in 6 days if you live in Toronto. You can check your area’s shipping deadline on their shipping page.

56% Off 2-Pack Oral-B Pro-Health Toothbrush @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada – Now $13

Posted by on December 15, 2014 at 10:10 PM

56% Off 2 Pack Oral B Pro Health Toothbrush @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada   Now $13

Here’s a great deal on a pair of toothbrushes: you can get a 2-pack of Oral-B Pro-Health precision clean toothbrushes on sale for just $12.99. They were originally priced at $30, which puts them at a $17 discount.

This toothbrush is battery-operated and even has 3 modes to choose from: daily clean, sensitive or whitening. Surprisingly, it also has a timer to make sure that you brush your teeth for long enough. I know I’m guilty of not always brushing for the for two minutes, so this is definitely a major perk for lazy ones like me.

In terms of reviews, there is only one on Best Buy’s site and it’s a 3/5 star one, knocking it down for not being as pictured. According to the reviewer, “it’s just a small round brush“. Somewhat an odd statement because that is exactly what is shown in the picture: a small round tooth brush head! In fact, it’s designed to be that way in order to remove twice as much plaque as a regular tooth brush. Speaking of which, it’s definitely worth upgrading to a battery-operated one if you haven’t already. My hubby and I made the switch a couple of years ago and it feels beyond inefficient to sometimes have to resort to a regular one.

On Future Shop’s site, there are 2 reviews with a total of 4/5 stars. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

Very happy with this purchase! Makes your teeth feel dentist office clean! Worth the money!!

Price comparing, I found this exact toothbrush being sold at Amazon for $45.46 and that’s just for one of these bad boys too! Okay, so it’s sold by the Duty Free Shop, through Amazon’s marketplace but it was still a shocking price to see, especially in comparison with Best Buy’s and Future Shop’s current price. At London Drugs, one of these toothbrushes is priced at $16.99.

Since both Best Buy and Future Shop only ship orders over $25 for free, you would need to add a couple more items to your cart in order to have your order qualify for free shipping. At both sites, you can currently take advantage of a “buy more, save more” promotion, during which you can save the following on personal care items depending on how much you buy: 10% off 3 items, 15% off 5 items or 20% of 8 or more products.
