Posted by on August 18, 2014 at 6:00 AM

Casio 76 Key Electric Keyboard Was $250 Now $170 @ Best Buy Canada!

Best Buy is offering the gift of music for only $169.99! The Casio 76-Key Electric Keyboard has been marked down from $249.99 to $169.99, that’s a savings of $80! Best Buy was even kind enough to throw in free shipping. The sale ends August 21, 2014 so act fast!

There are other sites offering the same keyboard, but no one has it on sale close to this price. Future Shop has it currently at $249.99, Amazon is offering it at $299.95, and even Casio’s own website has the keyboard at $449,99. If Casio thinks it’s worth $450 and Best Buy now has it at $170, that’s over 60% off what the retailer feels it’s worth. Now that’s a great deal.

The Casio 76-Key Keyboard has a piano style keyboard and uses Casio’s Touch Response technology for a realistic feel. It also comes with 700 built-in tones and ten user tones. Add that to the 32-channel mixer and there’s nothing you can’t create. Especially when you realize that the keyboard offers 210 different pre-set rhythms from a wide range of genres. Then, just select the Auto Accompaniment feature and the keyboard provides you with backup music that’s almost like having your own professional band in your very own home. The keyboard also features the Rhythm Editor, which allows you to combine instruments, turn certain instruments on or off, and adjust the volume, pan, reverb as well as other parameters to create original rhythms. Once you’re done creating your new hit single you can use an SD memory card, connect to your computer and fine-tune your masterpiece.  This keyboard is incredibly user friendly, regardless of experience.

The Casio 76-key Electric Keyboard boasts positive reviews as well as customer satisfaction. Whether you’re looking to learn, reconnect with your passion, or you’re on your way to becoming the next great superstar, at $169.99 the Casio 76-Key Electric Keyboard is a fantastic fit! That, plus free shipping, is music to our ears.

The deal expires August 21, 2014 but at the time of this posting there were only 21 left.

Best Buy Canada: Keurig Special Edition Single Cup Coffeemaker K60 $89.98 & Free shipping

Posted by on August 17, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: Keurig Special Edition Single Cup Coffeemaker K60 $89.98 & Free shipping

Best Buy Canada has a really great deal on right now for a very popular product.  For a limited time only, you can get the Keurig special edition single cup coffeemaker K60 for just $89.98.

Not only is this Keurig a great deal, it will also get free shipping to boot!

I just got my husband one for his birthday and we have been using it all summer when we are camping.  At first, I didn’t want to get him one because I figured since he is the only coffee drinker, we wouldn’t get much use out of it- I was wrong.  I make my tea in it and my boys love to make their own hot chocolate in it as well. It instantly became a family hit. It has become so popular in our family that we literally bring it into the trailer when camping and then bring it into the kitchen at home when we are here. I am actually thinking about getting another one because we use it so much!

This system gets an overall rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 and has some spectacular reviews.

This is a fabulous product, couldn’t ask for a better brewing machine! Does everything and more! Highly recommend this unit!- Mike

Excellent machine, so convenient, received one last Christmas as a gift and have used it everyday since. Bought one this year for my mother in law and know she will love it. I didn’t just buy it for her so that I have good coffee when I visit, okay maybe I did!!!- Dave

Price Comparisons:

I checked out a few different stores to make sure this was the absolute best deal around for this Keurig system and it really is. I found the same system at Walmart Canada priced at $98. I also found it at London Drugs for just $0.01 more than Best Buy Canada, but you would need to pay extra for the cost of shipping which would increase the price. I found it on the Keurig website itself priced on sale for $114.99.  Their regular cost was $159.99 so even though it it marked down a lot, it is still far more than the one at Best Buy Canada.

HP Photosmart Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer Only $40 & Free Shipping @ BestBuy / FutureShop

Posted by on August 16, 2014 at 2:00 PM

HP Photosmart Wireless All In One Inkjet Printer Only $40 & Free Shipping @ BestBuy / FutureShop

If you are in need of a new inexpensive printer, this HP model from either FutureShop or BestBuy might fit the bill. It’s a deal on the HP PS6520 Photosmart Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer. The regular price is $149.99 but you can pick it up right now for only $39.99 with free shipping, from either store.

Price comparison wise, this particular model of printer doesn’t seem to be available from any other retailers, it seems to be an exclusive to the BestBuy and Futureshop stores. The price speaks for itself really.

Now, even though this is a great price on an HP printer, I will say that it’s probably not going to last you a lifetime. It’s an entry-level HP printer, and quite a basic model. There are a number of reviews on Futureshop from various people and they’re a little mixed, with the printer only receiving a score of just over two out of five. You can read the full reviews on the Futureshop link above, but there are big variations.

From:

Photos come out amazing!

To:

The black head no longer prints even though the ink level is full.

That latter comment seemed to be a concern from a few people. The HP PS6520 Photosmart Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer gets a slightly higher score on BestBuy, with comments such as, “Great all-around printer.” However, one customer stated:

For the cost of this ink, you could buy a brand new printer every time your cartridges run out.

This is definitely something to consider… and really a worrying trend to be honest. Electronics like this seem to be so disposable nowadays that people consider just buying a new printer instead of replacement ink!

Obviously you’ve got a full year’s warranty on the HP printer so if anything happens in that time, you’d be covered. But remember, you’re not paying a fortune for this item, so if anything goes wrong a couple of years down the line, you’re not too much out of pocket. It’s a great price to start with.

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Select Backpacks

Posted by on August 13, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Select Backpacks

We have found another great back to school offer for you to check out. Best Buy Canada has select backpacks by Sierra and Swiss Gear on sale for 50% off their retail price.

Backpacks range from 14.5 to 19.5 inches in size. I am sure size needed depends on the age of your child and the amount of books and what electronics they are stuffing into it.

This High Sierra 19.5″ Backpack – Flower Pop / Crimson is one of the larger backpacks at 19.5 inches. It includes all the usual things you look for in a backpack including a large interior section with multiple-pocket organizer. The padded mesh shoulder straps and padded back panel will be comfortable for all-day wear or toting uphill, both ways, back and forth to school. The print should win you a few points with reluctant back to school girls. Originally $59.99, the backpack is now on sale for $29.99.

The smallest backpack available is the High Sierra 14.5″ Backpack – Almond / Charcoal / Aquamarine and also available in Purple Razz Mystic / Black. This backpack is not designed to carry a laptop; rather it is designed with a tablet sleeve instead. It has a large interior with a multiple-pocket organizer as well. Originally $69.99, the tablet backpack is now $34.99.

This Swiss Gear 17.3″ Laptop Backpack – Blue/Black is the dream backpack for comfort, organization, and durability. The backpack comes with a laptop compartment, two other main compartments, and multiple smaller pockets for electronics, pencils, and more. The breathable mesh padded back and contoured shoulder straps will help alleviate backpack pressure. This backpack also comes in black if you prefer a simpler colour. Originally $99.99, the Swiss Gear backpack is now only $49.99.

My experience with Swiss gear is very positive. I currently own a piece of their carryon luggage and I used to own a full size piece of their luggage. That luggage was well abused by various airlines, yet it survived! It took the last airline literally tearing the zippers right off the bag for me to pack it in finally. If you are looking for a backpack to outlast your child’s school years, I would give Swiss Gear a try.

No matter which backpack you choose, I suggest picking your pack out soon as this offer ends on Thursday. There are also some backpacks not quite 50% off for sale. Best Buy offers free shipping on orders of $20 or more, so all these backpacks will ship free.

(PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre-Order – Just $70 + Free Shipping!

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 11:30 PM

(PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre Order   Just $70 + Free Shipping!

Negativity and Hulkamania: two things that don’t go together! Luckily, you can pre-order WWE 2k15 Hulkamnia edition on PS4 or Xbox One for just $69.99 at Best Buy. It’s set to release on October 28th 2014.

First of all, let me start off by saying that you should not wait to pre-order. Best Buy lists this game at a regular price of $69.99 but everywhere else (i.e. Amazon and EB Games), it’s $109.99, which puts this deal at close to a 40% discount in comparison. It’s even already sold out at Future Shop, where it was available for $69.99 as well!

Plus, the vast majority of PlayStation and Xbox One games tend to retail for $69.99, so the fact that this limited edition is at the same price is definitely pretty awesome, especially since the regular edition of this game is retailing for that same exact price right now, but without all of the following bonus features that the Hulkamania edition has:

  • Collective art card personally autographed by Hulk Hogan
  • Funko “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan vinyl figure
  • Authentic piece of ring canvas from Hulk Hogan’s Monday Night Raw appearance on March 10, 2014 in Memphis, TN
  • Premium packaging

In this edition of the game, players are also granted access to two exclusive characters: Hulk Hogan and “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan. It’s also a game that can either be played alone as singleplayer or in a multiplayer mode as it’s in a professional wresting fighting genre. Even cooler is that this latest instalment will focus on a historical timeline of past WWE rivalries, which die hard WWE fans are sure to enjoy. On the same vein, I’m sure just about anyone could enjoy the storyline as well in order to learn more about the history of the WWE, even though it’s fake! (PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre Order   Just $70 + Free Shipping!

I have to admit that I’m not the biggest Hulk Hogan fan but this is definitely a deal I’ll be taking advantage of as soon as possible before it sells out. I’m certain that my hubby will enjoy playing, especially with the Hulk Hogan character.

Fun fact: did you know that Hulkamnia was started after Hulk Hogan won the 1984 edition of Championship Wrestling? That was 30 years ago! Even crazier is that from 2005 to 2007, Hulk Hogan made a comeback, during which he was in his 50′s!

Best Buy Canada: 55% Off i Play Reusable Swim Diapers – Now $7.50

Posted by on August 9, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: 55% Off i Play Reusable Swim Diapers   Now $7.50 Got a pool? Got a little one? Then you need swim diapers! Luckily, Best Buy has the i Play reusable swim diapers on sale for just $7.49 instead of their regular price of $16.49, which puts them at a 55% discount.

Up until now, my munchkin hasn’t been ready to hit the pool, or at least I haven’t been, but now that summer is winding to a close and she is beginning to love her evening baths, I have been looking into getting a swim diaper that is both good and affordable. These swim diapers are 100% polyester microfibre and the best part is that… wait for it… they’re machine washable! When you have a baby, anything that is machine washable is always a major plus as you certainly don’t want to spend ages washing things by hand!

According to the description, the inner layer is “extra-absorbent”. Now, that’s definitely a feature that would need to be tried and tested first as we all know how bad poopsplosions can be, but it’s still reassuring that they’re designed with an extra level of absorbency.

When you click on the links above, depending on whether you’re shopping for a boy or a girl, you will also see short-like diaper styles. They’re more expensive but these are also on sale. You can get them for $11 off at $14.99 (reg. $25.99).

Looking up reusable swim diapers, all the ones I found were upwards of $15 in price. I did, however, find some girls’ swim diapers on sale for $5.99 at Kushies, but when I added them to my cart and entered by address, these went back up to their original price of $11.99. Plus, they also don’t have any for little boys.

Since Best Buy only ships orders over $20 for free, you could either stock up on the next sizes of these diapers or shop around the rest of the VIVA baby items on sale. In fact, you can also take advantage of a “buy more, save more” event, where you can save 10% on the purchase of three items, 15% on five items or 20% on eight items or more. This promotion is only valid on items from the following VIVA categories: beauty, personal care, vitamins & supplements along with sports nutrition.

White Coaster 3 Piece Dining Set For Only $49.97 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop /BestBuy Canada (Quick)

Posted by on August 9, 2014 at 10:48 AM

White Coaster 3 Piece Dining Set For Only $49.97 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop /BestBuy Canada (Quick)

There is limited stock of this deal, so it might not last for long… the White Coaster 3-Piece Dining Set has recently been reduced and just now, you can pick it up for only $49.97 with free shipping to your home!

I’ve put both links above as I am not sure how their stock works… if there’s a limited number or if one store sells out, and the other does not. It’s up to you to choose which you buy it from, it’s the same price and the same deal for the same item.

What you get:

  • White 3-piece table set
  • 2 armless ladder back dining chairs

This Coaster dining set would be absolutely ideal if you have a small kitchen or dining area, and only need a couple of chairs. It’s a fantastic price!

If you did want to go a little larger, there’s another deal on the Cappuccino coloured Coaster 5-Piece Dining Set from Best Buy – it’s only $69.97. So, if you’ve got a little more space or need a few extra chairs, consider spending the extra twenty bucks and up-sizing.

Obviously, at these price points, the Coaster dining sets are probably not going to be ultra-durable and long-lasting, but I imagine that you should get your money’s worth out of their usage.

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 71% Off Safety 1st Toddler Potty Training Bundle – Now $23 (+ Free Shipping!)

Posted by on August 6, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 71% Off Safety 1st Toddler Potty Training Bundle   Now $23 (+ Free Shipping!)

Has the time come to potty train your toddler? Then grab the Safety 1st toddler potty training bundle on sale for just $22.99 at both Future Shop and Best Buy. It was originally priced at $77.99, which puts it at a 71% discount!

Cheaper potties like the Summer Infant Lil Loo potty, which is $14.99 at Toys R Us but is out of stock right now, are definitely among the top potty picks as they’re very simple, but I actually prefer the Smart Rewards potty. On top of looking just like a real toilet but on a smaller scale, it also features a rewards system as it gives the child a sticker for each successful use. Plus, it also plays music!

It comes with:

  • Smart Rewards Potty
  • Step stool
  • Safety Set of 9 outlet caps & 4 cabinet latches

In fact, here’s what someone had to say about it on Toys R Us’ site:

I love this potty. I was not sure what I should be looking for when I got it, but it is perfect. My son started going on this potty at 20 months. He sings the songs with the potty and he just LOVES that he can flush it just like a big potty. I would recommend this to everyone!

Even better is that you won’t have to worry about your child playing with the toilet paper because the potty has a toilet paper guard to keep both kids and pets from unravelling it. There is nothing more that kids love doing more than creating a mess instead of getting down to business, so this is definitely a great feature to have. Plus, you won’t have to worry about getting locks for the cabinets as it comes with a set of 9 caps and 4 latches. It does seem like a lot for just a bathroom but you can either use it in a second bathroom if you have one or one other cabinets in the house like in the kitchen.

Just the potty itself is $28.86 at Walmart and $34.99 at Toys R Us. In fact, even the stool is $15.97 at Walmart! So, not only is Future Shop’s deal a better one but it also comes with bonus items.

Shipping is also free for this potty training bundle as Future Shop automatically ships all orders over $20 for free.

Best Buy Canada: 40% Off Vivon Matresses

Posted by on July 16, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: 40% Off Vivon Matresses

Best Buy Canada is offering 40% off Vivon hybrid mattresses made of gel and memory foam.

I want to get a double bed instead of the current queen bed that we have. A queen bed just takes up so much space that I would rather have for other things. This Vivon Drom Double Firm Gel Memory Foam Mattress would be a perfect replacement for our current mattress with a good solid base under it. It is eight inches thick with two of those inches being a Restech Gel-Infused Memory Foam Layer For a bed cooler surface. These foam mattresses naturally control odor as they are infused with green tea and charcoal. Originally $649.99, the mattress is on sale for $389.99.

There is a more deluxe model of mattress as well. The Vivon Hana Double/Full size Medium Firm Gel Memory Foam Hybrid Mattress has an 7.5″ spring unit enclosed in foam with the gel infused layer on top. iCoil technology uses 513 individually wrapped pocket coils for added support while you sleep. You get the best of both worlds with this hybrid: the support of a spring mattress, the comfort of a foam mattress, and the cooling potential of gel. Originally $999.99, it is now on sale for $599.99.

Both these mattresses are available in king and queen size models as well. The Drom is also available in a single bed style. Thicknesses increase as the mattresses get larger as well. For example, the double Drom is eight inches thick with a two inch gel-infused layer whereas the king sized mattress of the same style is ten inches thick with three of those inches being gel-infused memory foam.

I usually sleep on a spring style mattress because that is what we own; however, I really love foam. There is an eight-inch memory foam topper on the bed out at my parents where I sleep when I visit. While the room is in the basement and you have to screw in and unscrew the light bulb to get any light, the bed is so incredibly comfortable. I toss and turn far less when I sleep on memory foam as opposed to a regular mattress. However, these observations are over short-term stays. I am not sure how I would find it after a few years.

I thought these might incur shipping charges, but it was showing up as free shipping because the mattress is over $20 when I stuck the king sized mattress in my cart.

Best Buy Canada: Select Video Games 2 for $30

Posted by on July 11, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Select Video Games 2 for $30

Pick up a two video games at Best Buy for $30 instead of $19.99 each. You can stack this discount, like get four games for $60 and so forth.

Mix and match titles for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS & 2DS, and Nintendo Wii U.

You will have a hard time finding these games any cheaper anywhere else unless you are buying pre-owned. The Witcher 2 : Assassins Of Kings Enhanced Edition (XBOX 360), which retails anywhere from $14.99 used up to $29.99 for a new copy comes down to just $15 new when you purchase it with another game. Pick up Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (XBOX 360) with the above game and you will get both for $30.

I own a PS3, so the games compatible with that console interest me the most. My hubby bought me Final Fantasy XIII (PlayStation 3) when it was certainly priced higher than this. I started playing it back when I was still in school and judiciously decided I should wait until after I was done before I got too addicted. Now I am done school and going to take the game up again. I love the graphics, and while learning the controls is a bit of a steep learning curve, I cannot wait to get back into it. I even love the animated sequences with just storyline. I thought they were a bit lengthy at first but the animation is just so pretty. Pick a copy up for just $15 when you buy another game with it.

When I use to invade arcades, I would play Mortal Kombat or some knock-off version of the game. I loved each and every second of it, even if it was just smashing a whole lot of buttons and then marveling at the combo I somehow produced. I would love to try out Mortal Kombat vs DC Value (Playstation 3) not only because of my Mortal Kombat memories, but also because of my geek status. I am pretty disappointed that the Martian Manhunter is not included as a character, but I guess he was just too powerful. Pick this game up with Final Fantasy and get both of them for $30.

Mix and match your own combos based on what games you like and which games you do not own yet.

Receive free shipping on all orders of $20 or more, which means all video game combos ship for free.

BestBuy Canada: Free Gift with Dyson Fan Purchase (Value $120)

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 11:30 PM

BestBuy Canada: Free Gift with Dyson Fan Purchase (Value $120)

When you buy any Dyson Air Multiplier at Best Buy Canada, you will receive a pair of Sennheiser Open Wireless Headphones valued at $119.99 for free.

We have a Dyson vacuum cleaner, but I have not yet been able to justify the expense of a fan. However, if I needed another set of headphones (which I sadly do not), then I would readily jump at this offer. Pick any Dyson fan and get a free set of Sennheiser Open Wireless headphones automatically added to your cart. Fans range in price from $329.99 up to $499.99.

The headset communicates wirelessly with your device and is supposed to have reception through walls and ceilings. Enjoy up to 100 metres of range with no strings – or cords – attached. The headphones are lightweight and comfortable to wear according to Best Buy Canada, and they come with three AAA batteries. However, I suggest picking up some rechargeable batteries for the headset if you do not already have. You can read more details on the free headset here.

Personally, I would the Dyson 12″ Desk Fan for $349.99. Usually I would advocate going for the cheapest fan as your freebie is then worth a greater percentage of your product; however, the 12″ fan is only $20 more than the 10″ fan. I think the larger size is certainly worth the extra green bill. The iron/blue colour combination is certainly my favourite. It would look fabulous on top my new vintage dark blue steamer trunk that I picked up for a steal. I always have a fan going in my room, and the Dyson would just replace the one currently sitting on the trunk at the end of my bed.

Yet, it might be worth going with one of the more expensive models for some of the additional features. I would love to own the Dyson Hot + Cool Fan as it would serve well both summer and winter. We bought two space heaters this last winter, as space board heaters are incredibly inefficient. We cut our heating bill by at least 1/3rd with the space heaters. The Dyson hot and cold fan would be the perfect year around fan with the ability to generate heat or just throw cool air. However, it costs $499.99. At least the free headset is valued at just over 20% the value of this fan.

Receive free shipping on all orders of $20 or more. Headset is automatically added to your cart.

Future Shop & Best Buy: SanDisk Extreme Plus 32GB SD Card $40 (Save $60)

Posted by on July 7, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Future Shop & Best Buy: SanDisk Extreme Plus 32GB SD Card $40 (Save $60)

Future Shop Canada and Best Buy Canada have put the SanDisk Extreme Plus 32GB 80MB/s SDHC Class 10 UHS-I Memory Card on sale for only $39.99, down from $99.99.

I provided both links in case it sells out at one place, you can purchase it at the sister store.

This is no ordinary memory card. It is 32GB worth of space with a class 10 rating. However, a standard class 10 32GB memory card has a write speed maximum of 30 MB per second. This card has a maximum write speed of 80MB per second, which is why it is an ‘extreme plus’ card.

Speed is everything when you are dealing with DSLR cameras and video. This card is made for fast action shots, continuous burst mode, and multiple frames per second. Photos are written to your card almost instantly so you will get your best shot and capture everything you want to capture without significant delays while your computer transfers the image to your card.  I photographed a geyser exploding and the speed of my memory card allowed me to get twenty-four incredible still shots of the geyser in process. You can see a few of my photos in the composite above. Had I owned a faster card, I would have gotten more shots, which would have been cool. I actually stuck all my shots in a double page layout in my Iceland photo book.

You will not only be able to take photos fast, you will also save time moving all your photos from your camera to your computer. If you are transferring a few thousand photos after a beautiful vacation, then this is a nice added feature. If you are an avid photographer and own a DSLR camera, then this SD card is going to be your new best friend.

I price compared this card with a few other places in Canada. It is $49.99 @ Canada Computers, $59.89 @ The Camera Store, $63.99 @ Vistek.ca, $69.99 at Henry’s, and $79.99 @ Camera Canada. These prices do not include shipping costs as most these places do not offer free shipping at a low enough minimum for this card to qualify.

Best Buy Canada and Future Shop Canada both offer free shipping on orders of $20 or more so this card will ship free.

Best Buy Canada Yellow Tag Sale: $120 Off Lexar 256GB USB Flash Drive – Now $110

Posted by on July 4, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Best Buy Canada Yellow Tag Sale: $120 Off Lexar 256GB USB Flash Drive   Now $110The Yellow Tag Sale has just started at Best Buy and for three days only, there are plenty of hot deals to take advantage of on items like TVs, laptops, tablets, headsets and much more! Amongst the items on sale, I spotted the Lexar JumpDrive 256GB USB flash drive for just $109.99 (reg. $229.99).

I frequently transfer files between my desktop and my laptop, and there is nothing more annoying than getting an error message from a lack of storage space on the USB drive, but a 256GB stick would definitely hold a lot more data (more than 25 movies at the highest quality). The WD My Passport Ultra 1.5TB external hard drive is also on sale for just $100.89 (reg. $133.89) but while it’s cheaper, it really depends on what you’re looking to use the extra storage for. If you need something small for on the go, then the USB flash drive is a good choice. The external hard drive, on the other hand, is better for longer-term storage, though it can also be used for transferring files as well.

If you need a new backpack, then I also spotted the Init bag on sale for just $9.99 (reg. $29.99). It’s big enough to hold a 15.6″ laptop and comes with padded shoulder straps and several compartments inside.

Price Comparison

Usually, Future Shop lists the same prices as Best Buy, but it actually has this Lexar USB for $20 more at $129.99. Amazon has it on sale for $229.99, down from a $249.99 price.

Taking into consideration that this Lexar USB has 256GB of storage, I searched for other high storage USB flash drives on Best Buy and while there are no other 256GB ones available, the cheapest one I found the Lexar JumpDrive S33 128GB for $129.99 — that’s half the storage space, and still more expensive!

Shipping

Since Best Buy always offers free shipping on orders over $20, you’re sure to get this USB flash drive absolutely free.

Best Buy Canada has a sweet deal on this PNY 2600 mAh Portable Charger. Originally $39.99, the external battery is now on sale for $21.99. However, when you add it to your cart an extra 25% comes off the last price so you will pick up this sweet little device for only $16.49.

This baby will carry one full recharge for most smartphones. It is a small little stick so you can stuff it in your purse or backpack for those days when suddenly your battery is at 0% and your phone just shut itself off. It includes a 20″ micro USB cable to both charge the PowerPack and to charge your micro USB devices on the PowerPack. However, if you are running an Apple phone, you can just use your regular Apple cable to connect your phone to the charger.

Recharging the PowerPack is simple: just plug it into any USB port or even one of those USB to outlet converters. A digital display on the portable charger displays a numerical amount of remaining power in the PowerPack. The device comes charged and ready to use! This is such an amazing deal that there are limited quantities remaining.

If you miss this one, you will seriously want to pick up one of the other PNY portable chargers on sale. The PNY PowerPack 5200 mAh Portable Charger was $59.99 and is now on sale for $36.99. After you add it to your cart, it comes down to a mere $27.74. This battery pack will give you around two full charges for a standard smart phone.

If you need some serious power or want to charge a tablet, then pick up the PNY PowerPack 7800 mAh Portable Charger that was $79.99 and is on sale for $51.99. After you add it to your cart, it comes down to just $38.99. This pack has enough juice to charge up most tablets once or an average smartphone three times.

I also suggest checking out this NuPower Stix 2800mAh Battery Bank that was $24.99 and comes down to just $11.24 in your cart. It is also a fantastic deal.

I am a HUGE fan of external battery power for electronics. I cart around a portable charger for my iPhone because Apple makes crappy batteries (at least for the iPhone 5). I love the smaller stick for carrying in my purse and I have a larger charger for traveling. They are on my list of devices I could not live without.

Quantities are very limited! Receive free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

Best Buy Canada: Philips 50 LED Smart TV Now $599.99 | Was $899.99

Best Buy Canada has an awesome Canada Day sale starting today with t a tone of great deals.  One of those deals is on an item that my husband has been wanting for a while now.  You can get a Philips 50″ LED Smart TV for just $599.99 during this awesome Canada Day sale.

It will be this low price for just 4 days only.  After this sale is done, it will go back up to the original price of $899.99, which means that this deal will save you a whopping $300 on the TV. The same TV is on sale for $649.99 at Future Shop right now.

This TV has it all.  It has a USB port gives you a direct connection to flash drives and other devices, it has WirelessConnect that lets you explore unlimited internet access on your TV, and it even has HDMI x 3 that lets you connect to high definition monitors, next gen game consoles and other devices.  It is perfect for gamers or the family that likes to watch movies on a big screen as well.

It is an ENERGY STAR 6.0, which means it will help reduce the normal energy it spends to help assist with your energy bills. When the title says “Smart TV” it actually means it!

This deal is so hot, it is sold out to delivery in Alberta but if you live in any of the other provinces; you will still be able to get it while supplies last.

This item will have a shipping charge of $55 because of the sheer size of it.  This is standard for electronics and items that weigh a lot.  If you consider that you are saving $300 on the regular cost though, it is still a great deal even when you have to pay for the cost of shipping.
