Logitech X100 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Was $40 | Now $20 + FS On $25 @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Logitech X100 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Was $40 | Now $20 + FS On $25 @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

While gardening I often wish that I had a little portable speaker so I could listen to my music without leaving my phone out in the sun or with the potential risk of getting wet. The Logitech X100 Bluetooth Mobile Wireless Speaker is on sale at Best Buy Canada right now for 50% off. Where you would have normally paid $40, you will now pay just $19.99. Best Buy also offers free shipping on orders over $25, so you only need a small filler to get that offer as well.

Snag this offer quickly if you want it, it is valid today only but who knows how long supplies will actually last. The Logitech X100 Bluetooth Mobile Wireless Speaker is a small portable speaker that is designed to bring you big sound. You won’t find any other Canadian retailers with a better price right now, so snag this from Best Buy Canada for just $19.99. Take a look at the price on this Logitech X100 Bluetooth Mobile Wireless Speaker at other Canadian retailers:

Unfortunately this awesome price only applies to the grey model of this Logitech speaker. The other colours are still double this price. But does colour really matter? This device can connect with any Bluetooth enabled device from up to 30 feet away. You can even control the volume or answer phone calls from your mobile device. The Logitech X100 Bluetooth Mobile Wireless Speaker has a five hour battery life – so it can be the life of any party. Once the battery runs low, simply connect the device to a charging unit with the micro USB cable. The built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery is included and already installed and ready for use. Most electronics do require about 12 hours of charge time before use though, keep that in mind.

Your best bet would be to find another small filler for your order, since BestBuy.ca offers free shipping on orders over $25. You are just $5 away. You could add a second speaker to your purchase, perhaps it would make a great Father’s Day gift if you are still on the hunt for something that says “I love you Dad”. My dad works in his garage a lot, so this would be something he could keep in the garage so he could listen to his music without having his phone in his hand.

Hey Moosers, where do you plan on using your new wireless Bluetooth speaker?

Best Buy Canada: Lasko 10″ Floor Fan Was $25 | Now $15

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Best Buy Canada: Lasko 10 Floor Fan Was $25 | Now $15

Best Buy Canada has a one-day deal on air conditioners and fans. I picked out this affordable Lasko 10″ Floor Fan (505C) as a great deal for Moosers. Originally $24.99, the fan is now on sale for $14.99.

$15 is a great price for a 10″ fan. I could not find this fan elsewhere in Canada, but I did find it three places in the USA. The Lasko 505 10″ fan costs $21.08 @ Newegg.com, $17.96 @ Home Depot US, and $17.96 @ Amazon.com. All those prices are in USD and do not include shipping.

Let us talk shipping for a minute. This 10″ Lasko fan comes in below the $25 minimum for free shipping. I present two options. First, you can reserve and pick up at your local store. Secondly, and my favourite option, is purchase two of these fans ($14.99 x 2 = $29.98), which would then qualify for free shipping. I own two fans: one is for the bedroom and one is for the living room. I like sticking the fans in my windows at night to create better circulation. On one side, have a fan that points in and on the other side of your house have another that points out.

There are no reviews on Best Buy’s website so I picked one off the Home Depot (US) website. One reviewer on there said:

Easy to start using–just take out of box and plug in.It can be set on a table,desk or placed on floor. The best feature is how easy it is to tilt for several different directions of air flow. Very powerful for it’s size.

This fan is a great basic for your home. The Lasko fan features two quiet speeds. The fan is lightweight and has a carrying handle for moving it from room to room. You can use this fan on the floor or as a table fan. The tilting head allows you to control the direction of the airflow.

If you are looking for a standing fan, then purchase the Lasko 16″ Stand Fan (2521C) – Black on sale from $39.99 down to $29.99. I like oscillating fans, personally. If you like the idea of a table fan but want a smaller unit, then look at the Honeywell 8″ Tabletop Air Circulator Fan (HT-900C) on sale from $19.99 down to $14.99.

Danby Air Conditioner Was $129.99 | Now $99.99 @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on June 5, 2015 at 7:22 PM

Danby Air Conditioner Was $129.99 | Now $99.99 @ Best Buy Canada

If the summer heat is crowding your brain function and melting all your marbles, then pick up a new air conditioner for summer. Best Buy Canada has discounted this Danby 5000 BTU Window Air Conditioner (DAC050MB1GB) from $129.99 down to $99.99 with free shipping.

Now, this unit (with the exact model number) is not available anywhere else in Canada. however, I did find a Danby 5,000 BTW air conditioner with just a slightly different model number (looks the same) for $144 at Walmart.

After searching for a bit, I figured that I would just compare this air conditioner’s price to other 5,000 BTU units. The cheapest 5,000 BTU unit on Walmart is Mainstays for $109.98. Home Depot Canada has a LG air conditioner (5,000 BTU) for $119. Canadian Tire has a Gree 5,000 BTU unit for $109.99 and Rona sells a Facto unit for $119. Anywhere I looked, I could not find a 5,000 BTU unit for under $100.

This air conditioner will cover approximately 150 sq. ft, so it is great for bedrooms, home offices, playrooms, and very small apartments. I know my bedroom is roasting in the summer as the balcony door (off the bedroom) receives the full evening sun. While it is nice to lie in the sunlight spring and fall, summer becomes an experiment of sleeping in an oven.

The Denby air conditioner comes with two cooling speeds and uses environmentally-friendly R410A refrigerant. Though air conditioners are known for their high energy consumption, this unit has a 9.7 EER Energy rating. Honestly, I think it is worth the energy expenditure and cost because my personal energy plummets if I am overheating.

This air conditioner is covered by a one-year warranty. I have actually been looking for one of these units since last summer when I nearly stopped getting out of bed due to the heat. I was considering buying used but air conditioners are not known for their long life span. I think it would be safer just to buy new – especially now that I can buy one for under $100 pre-tax. If you are in a rush, then reserve online and pick-up at your local store within a few hours.

Best Buy: Fender Squier SA-50 Acoustic Guitar Was $100 | Now $80 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Best Buy: Fender Squier SA 50 Acoustic Guitar Was $100 | Now $80 (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada has discounted the Fender Squier SA-50 Acoustic Guitar from $99.99 down to $79.99. As the guitar retails for over $25, you can get it shipped to you for free.

This is a beginner’s guitar package perfect for a young musician just starting out. By the way, Best Buy Canada has misspelled the guitar; it is a Squier (not a Squire). This is a right-handed design (not for lefties) and has a traditional acoustic dreadnought body shape. It has a spruce top with basswood back, sides, and neck. There is also a rosewood fingerboard. The guitar has a 25.3″ scale length and 20-fret fingerboard. The guitar has a black pickguard with gold hardware.

Now, you get some additional accessories, which makes this perfect for beginners. The guitar comes with picks (five), a guitar strap, and a set of strings. It looks like the guitar also comes with a hex key (?), but I am not sure what that is for.

I could not find this guitar in-stock at any other place online. I did find it not available at Amazon, which is always good for reviews. This guitar package has a 4.2/5 star rating. Most the reviewers are incredibly impressed with the unit and think it sounds quite good for this price range. The quality versus price is one of the things most customers agree upon.

A few others think that the size is a bit small. Some other reviewers also wish the guitar came with a protective case, but they enjoy the other accessories as the guitar can be assembled and used right out of the box.

I am all for learning a musical instrument when you are young. My mother started me on piano, but my fingers are terribly short. Thus, it was a difficult instrument to learn. I have a friend who was told he could never play the guitar well because his fingers are very short, but he has a passion for the instrument. Thus, when he grew up, he started to teach himself how to play the guitar. I have to say, he is very good and I have had the pleasure of listening to him play Highway to Heaven and some Pink Floyd too.

This is a one-day deal only, so pick your new guitar up today.

Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor Was $120 | Now only $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 1, 2015 at 8:41 AM

Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor Was $120 | Now only $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Keep your home protected with the Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor. This home camera was $119.99, but is now only $49.99. You will also qualify for free shipping, as this item is more than the $25 minimum.

While we are all happy to throw open our doors for the nice weather, but you do have to protect yourself. During the summertime, domestic break-ins increase. While thieves are not always smart, it is much easier to break into your home when the ground is not covered in ice. Protect your family and your home with the Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor.

This monitor is Wi-Fi enabled and allows you to check on your camera from an iPhone or iPad whether you are home or on vacation.  From reading around the internet, it seems the app for this camera is only currently available at the iTunes store. Included with your camera is a wall mount so you can set this little camera up where ever in your home. I would recommend picking one of your entryways or monitoring your garage entrance. This handy little camera will send you push notifications when noise or motion is detected. Recordings from your camera can be placed automatically in a Dropbox account. This camera also has a warranty for a year on parts.

The Source has a comparable camera you could pick up, the ION Two Way Monitoring Camera for $149.99. Over at Walmart.ca, the Summer Infant Baby Link Wi-Fi Internet Viewing Camera has similar capabilities and is on clearance for $150. There is also a second party seller on Amazon Canada who has this exact camera on sale for $98.09, but you would also pay shipping.

There are not many reviews on this camera. It simply is not being sold many places in Canada. I went over the border to look at American reviews, and this camera sits at a solid three out of five stars across the border.  Over there some people really like the ease of use the app provides for this camera, but others report having connectivity issues. For this fantastic price, you will have to make your own call.

This is a great price for a Wi-Fi enabled camera that connects to your iPhone. Most cameras that connect to apps generally run around $100 from what I have seen with my research. You could also use this as a baby monitor, or in my case toddler trouble monitor. This could also be used as a spy cam if you are worried about something happening in your home with any service providers that enter your home. A friend of mine set one of these up and caught a housekeeper stealing from her. She now has a reliable housekeeper she loves replacing the original. Whatever you use this camera for, this is a great deal that is only good for today. You may want to grab yours now!

Black Palmdale Power Recliner Was $800 | Now $350 @ BestBuy.ca

Posted by on May 31, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Black Palmdale Power Recliner Was $800 | Now $350 @ BestBuy.ca

Kick back and relax is a phrase people often say. The problem is, you need a recliner to do that. Right now Best Buy Canada has the Palmdale Power Recliner in Black on sale for just $349.99. That is a total savings of $450. Best Buy Canada will even pay for the delivery.

If you have kids or pets, you probably have the same fear as I do: damaging your leather furniture. I spent a pretty penny on my furniture and my heart races a little every time the cat or dog jumps onto it. Leather can be expensive, but luckily enough polyurethane fabric furniture looks just like leather and only has a fraction of the cost. Take this Palmdale Power Recliner as an example. Leather recliners like this could cost you upwards of $1000. This recliner would normally cost you $800, but is on sale for just $349.99. The polyurethane material makes it easy to clean, and a little more durable than leather.

Did I mention that the Palmdale Power Recliner has a two-way power motor? Switch your chairs position right at your fingertips. There are literally two buttons right on the chair, in an easy spot. One button reclines the chair and the other button will put it back to the normal position. There are an infinite number of reclining positions with just a click of a button. My grandmother, due to her old age, has a hard time putting the foot rest back down on her manual recliner. She would really benefit from something like this. I think she would enjoy the comfortable triple-pillow back design too. Just be careful no odd crumbs or toys end up in there if you have young children. My toddler loves to stuff toys in between the couch cushions in my living room. It makes for an interesting cleaning day at least. This recliner only comes in black, but at least black seems to match everything (as you can see in the image above). It surely won’t clash with your current decor.

Unfortunately this item is too big to reserve at your local store. You can only opt for the home delivery option since the item will be shipped directly from the warehouse. The delivery can be scheduled for your convenience. I had Best Buy deliver a stove to me recently, and unfortunately they scratched it trying to get it into my house. They offered me a new one or a discount. and I took the discount. Just pay close attention that they don’t ding your new recliner on any of your door frames.

AVF 37″ to 65″ TV Wall Mount Kit Was $200 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 29, 2015 at 9:50 AM

AVF 37 to 65 TV Wall Mount Kit Was $200 | Now $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Everyone has the best TV spot with the AVF 37” to 65” Flat- Panel TV Wall Mount Kit. This kit was $199, but you can pick it up for only $49.99. This item also qualifies for completely free shipping.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of having a dear friend stay with us for the weekend. Somewhere along the way our conversations have turned from university gossip to topics like home renovations, politics and workplace trouble. We did manage to get in some games of Settlers of Catan and Zombie Dice complete with wine to lighten things up. Our friend just bought a new house that is not quite level, so he found himself shopping around for a TV mount. He had also read an article recently about how flat screen TVs falling on young children is on the rise and causing lots of injuries. I do not know the exact article he read, but here is one the CBC published about the topic. We quickly learned when we saw my daughter play near the TV and it almost fell over!

Pick up this great TV mount at Best Buy Canada on the cheap, and you can avoid a cracked screen or injured person. This is a nice little set that includes a mount that has a low profile to the wall. The mount also tilts for optimum viewing. Included in the kit, you will also receive:

  • Two HDMI Cords
  • TV cleaner
  • Microfiber cleaning cloth
  • Surge protector with two USB ports

This exact TV mount is available in Amazon Canada from alternate sellers for $217.74, I found a comparable tv mounting stand that tilts over at Costco.ca for $69.99, but does not include the extras. The sizing is a little smaller, as it can handle TVs that are 37” to 60.” Dell Canada has a TV mount designed for TVs that are 40 inches to 63 inches across for $99.99 that also does not include the extras.

Most of the reviews seem happy with this mount. It seems sturdy and easy to install for most buyers. A few buyers mentioned it is a little too close to the wall with the cables they are using on their TV. Here is one happy review.

So I had gotten this on black friday and I think the package speaks for itself, but to help you out on making this choice: instillation was relatively easy and the power cord has 2 usb ports to charge your devices and it does a really good job. 5 out of 5.

I would pick this TV mount up now. Not only are you getting a great deal, you also get a nice little accessory kit to go with it. From my searches, the only other time of year we have seen a deal this good on this mount was Black Friday last year. Pick this up now while they are still in stock.

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 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?

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.
