Xtremeguard Coupon: 90% off & Free Canadian Shipping! * HOT *

A few times in the distant past, both Avigayil and I have written about Xtremeguard, the US based site which specialises in screen guards and accessories for phones and tablets. Right now, they’ve just released a super-hot coupon code for a 90% discount site-wide (on top of sale prices), plus there is free Canadian shipping too! Super-sweet!

Click here to use the Xtremeguard coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: Hot85
  • Discount: 85% off
  • Expires: Unknown
  • Coupon Code: 90off1
  • Discount: 90% off
  • Expires: Unknown

When I first spotted the above coupon code, I tried it out on the Apple iPhone 6 4.7″ Screen Protector – FULL BODY + Free Install Kit which was originally priced at $12.99. When in cart and with coupon code, it drops to only $0.98!!!

As I proceeded through checkout to find out about Canadian shipping fees, I was pleasantly surprised to notice that their free US shipping also applies to Canada orders. Just make sure to choose the free option at checkout. It says it may take 18 to 32 days which is a little slow, but you cannot complain when you’re getting 85% off as well as free shipping.

Xtremeguard caters to all sorts of devices, from iPads to iPhones, from Galaxy Notes to Nexus 5s. And since I have last been on their site, they’re also selling more accessories, such as these:

The prices are fantastic, overall, but more so for the screen guards themselves:

I’ve no idea how long the coupon will last, so get in there fast if you are interested. Happy shopping!

Remember, you may be liable to pay extra duties and customs fees if your order goes over $20 – maybe place separate orders if you want a few things.

Wind Mobile: $35 Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data

Posted by on April 28, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Wind Mobile: $35 Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data

I see cell phone deals being advertised all the time, so I hunted down the best unlimited cell phone deal for your buck right now. Wind Mobile offers an unlimited talk, text, and data plan with voicemail included for just $35 per month.

This plan includes:

  • Unlimited Data (2 GB full speed allotment) 
  • Unlimited Canada-wide Calling
  • Unlimited Canada-wide Texting
  • Unlimited Canada/US-wide Picture/Video Messaging
  • Up to $150 in Bring/Buy Your Own Phone Credits or WINDtab
  • Voicemail+
  • Call Control (Caller ID, Missed Call Alerts, Conference Calling, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting)
  • No Hidden Fees, System Access Fees, or Activation Fees

Now, the unlimited data has a 2 GB full speed allotment, at which point your data speed will slow down. However, everything up to 5 GB is fair game according to the fair usage policy. You can buy more expensive plans for a higher full-speed allotment. However, this $35 plan is the cheapest plan you will find that allows a full 5 GB of data (at any speed) with unlimited Canada-wide talk and texting.

Now, I did some comparing to make sure this was the great deal I figured it for. Telus and Rogers are simply not contenders in cell phone plans these days. Fido unlimited plans start at $60, so they were a non-contender. Koodo has an unlimited talk plan for $45 with 1 GB of data. The plan is simply more expensive and has less data so i do not understand what the big hype is over it. The closest deal was Mobilicity’s $35 per month plan. The plan includes everything Wind mobile’s plan includes – except you only receive ‘light data’ at Mobilicity. Light data is limited to social networking and email.

Wind Mobile does not care what kind of data you use – your data type is also unlimited with this plan. I rarely use more than 1 GB of data per month, so this plan would serve me quite well. I sometimes get near the top of my data allotment so the extra 1 GB of full speed data would be awesome. However, even if I go over that, I know that there are no extra fees until I pass 5 GB. Now that is peace of mind and a great price per month.

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Posted by on February 26, 2015 at 8:00 PM

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I love my tablet and phone, but  I do not like paying extra for all of the nifty accessories. While I feel strongly a good case is important to protect my device, I try to limit my accessory purchases. No need to do without those holders and chargers, hack it together instead. Here are some great DIY Accessories for your tablet or phone that you can make much cheaper than buying.

Wood Charging Station

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

This unique handmade docking station will look super chic in your house, or is fancy enough to give it as a gift. Check out this hack from Scarlett Words to create a simple charging station from a slice of wood and a lightning cable. A handmade docking station like this one would run $50-$80. This hack could easily be adapted to charge any device. Attach a small portable speaker and you can also jam to all your favourite tunes.

Tablet Holder For Your Kitchen

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I do not use paper recipes very often anymore. I am always consulting my tablet or phone for new recipes to use in the kitchen. Check out this solution to spilling the flour on your iPad from Mamie Jane’s. This beautiful tablet holder made from an upcycled wood cutting board, a child’s block, and a scrabble tile holder is just my style. Beautiful and chic, no one will know you made it yourself instead of spending $40-$50 on a similar holder.

Bling Case

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Love the look of a case covered in bling? I hate that $25-$50 price tag that usually goes with it. Use the tutorial at Crafting Rebellion instead to create a super shiny case on a budget. Pick up a less expensive case at the dollar store and let your glue and jewels do the magic.

Touchscreen Compatible Gloves

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Picture this, you are out in the snow and something funny happens. You whip out your phone and your hands freeze as you try to snap the perfect shot. Rewind that scenario and turn your favourite gloves into tech gloves with this cool hack from natalme on Blogher. With a needle, metallic thread and your favourite pair of gloves, in just a few minutes you can make any gloves touch screen responsive. This blogger suggests special conductive wire, but it is possible to use any conductive metallic thread. Test the thread in a shop by holding one end of the skein while brushing the other end on your phone to see if it responds. A cheap pair of super thin gadget gloves will cost about $10-$15. A nicer pair that will keep your hands warm all winter can easily cost $40-$80.

Tablet Mount For The Car Headrest

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Blackcabbit has a great solution to turn your iPad or other tabler into a movie theater for your kids on long trips. Using some elastic and a few other small items, this dad creates an entertainment system that stays put. This is perfect if your kid falls asleep during movies on car rides. Most commercial headrest mounts range from $25-$40. I made a similar mount for my daughter before our last road trip and it worked perfectly.

Trick Out Your Earmuffs

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

If you spend some time commuting in the cold, you need to make these tricked out earmuff headphones from Brit+Co. These earmuffs do require some basic sewing skills, but even a novice sewer like me should be able to complete these. Make yourself a pair in any style instead of splurging for a $20-$65 pair.

Project Photos and Videos On Your Wall

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I can remember sitting down in my grandfather’s living room while he proudly showed off his slides from years ago. Impress your friends without a pricey digital projector by displaying your photos on the wall. This projector from Photojojo will only cost you a single dollar. While the image may not be perfectly clear, a crisp digital projector will cost you $75-$200. Project movies on the wall for a fun movie night.

No Sew Phone or MP3 Player Holder For Running

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I love those armbands for running that securely hold my device while exercising. Each one can easily cost $30 and I am a fickle about keeping up my exercise program, so I am always hesitant to buy them. Enter this creative no-sew arm holder from Wonder How To. With a placemat, some strong glue and two hair ties you can make your own quick holder. For a more adjustable version, make the armband a little longer and add some velcro strips.

Bargainmoosers, what tech accessories would you love to have?

Wind Mobile: Unlimited USA & Canada Mobile Plan only $39

Posted by on February 8, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Wind Mobile: Unlimited USA & Canada Mobile Plan only $39

Hello snowbirds and fellow border-hopping Canadians! Wind Mobile has an extraordinary offer for anyone who needs both US and Canadian cell data on a regular basis. Sign up for the Unlimited Canada & USA plan for only $39 per month.

I seriously love this deal. To even find a Canadian unlimited cell plan for under $40 these days is rare, as prices have been going up. Add on nearly unlimited use in the USA as well and I am drooling. Here is what your package includes:

  • Unlimited Canada & USA Text
  • Unlimited Canada Data (fair usage policy applies)
  • Unlimited US Roaming: Unlimited Data, Text and 2400 minutes of CA/US-wide Talk
  • Unlimited Canada-wide Talk
  • Call Control (Caller ID, Missed Call Alerts, Conference Calling, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting)

This is a impressive package, especially as it includes unlimited US roaming as well. Roaming fees can really add up (I have been hit with them before). All the unlimited US features are from anywhere on Wind’s partner networks in the United States.

The WIND 39 plan may be activated with the WINDtab. You can put up to $150 value on your WINDtab. The WIND 39 plan is also eligible for Better Together Savings, so if your combine select mobile phone and mobile internet plans, then you can save extra money as well. However, the WIND 39 plan cannot be combined with the Bring/Buy Your Own Phone offer. That does not mean you cannot bring your own phone (you still can) you just cannot take advantage of the special offer they have for it.

Now, if you are already with Wind and want to make the switch to this plan, then you need to know a couple things.

If you are upgrading then transition is simple. Phone in or visit your online account control to migrate your account. However, if you are downgrading from a larger plan then you must pay a $25 fee along with one month of the promotional plan’s cost. You can migrate your account on the phone or through your account online. Current WIND customers cannot migrate their account in store.

For all the fine print details, please see Wind Mobile. I hope these give you a sense of how good this plan is and what loops you need to jump through to get the plan. If you sign up for the WIND 39 Unlimited US & Canada plan, let us know!

Microsoft Store: $200 Off Nokia Lumia 1020 – Now $349

Posted by on January 20, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Microsoft Store: $200 Off Nokia Lumia 1020   Now $349

The Microsoft Store is offering an unlocked Nokia Lumia 1020 for $200 off its retail price. Originally $549, the phone is now on sale for $349 with no contract.

This phone comes with two colour options: black or yellow. The black is already out of stock, but could be restocked as this deal goes into February. While the yellow is a bit flamboyant in terms of colour, that has its benefits. First, it will be a lot harder to misplace your phone. In addition, if you do misplace your phone, it will be easier to find a bright yellow device than a black phone.

The Nokia Lumia has a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ screen with the phone being slightly larger. The 41-megapixel camera will take good quality selfies and pictures of your cat while the 32 GB storage will handle all the apps you can load on it (along with a good supply of pictures). The phone is Windows 8.1 ready. That means it comes with Windows 8 and you need to run the update when you receive the phone.

Reviews are mostly positive, with a few negative and mediocre thrown in for a good mix. One reviewer said:

love this. wanted an alternative to android that performed well. got it in this beauty. the photos are amazing and the item is not as complex and fast as a lot of other phones, but it delivers reliable and beautiful service to windows users.

Some people have experienced issues with the battery. Several reviewers say that the phone can eat through 70% of its battery on days of heavy use. That appears to be the primary complaint from the few people who were very dissatisfied with the phone. However, most reviewers actually love the phone. 19/28 reviews are for a full 5/5 stars and even with the negative reviews, the phone still averages a 4.1/5 star rating.

While yellow might not be my first choice for a phone – oh wait, it would match my car! – this is still a very good deal on an unlocked phone with no contract. Take this phone to your favourite carrier and feel free to move carriers when you see a better deal. That is what I do with my phone.

Receive free shipping on all orders at Microsoft Canada.

Blackberry: Trade up Phone for Up to $600 towards Blackberry Passport

Posted by on December 7, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Blackberry: Trade up Phone for Up to $600 towards Blackberry Passport

Blackberry has introduced a trade up and save program towards their new Blackberry Passport. Trade up your current Blackberry or other phone towards the Blackberry Passport and receive up to $600 towards the Blackberry Passport.

The $600 actually breaks into two amounts. You will get up to $400 black for your phone depending on make, model, memory, and condition. On top of that, you will receive a top up of $200 from Blackberry towards the trade in. Together, that equals a maximum of $600 towards the Blackberry Passport.

I did a demo run with my iPhone 5 16GB. Oddly enough, they list almost every other cell phone carrier in Canada you could possibly have except Fido. Why is there no Fido? I chose Wind instead. They calculated a $120 trade up value with a $200 Blackberry top up for a total value of $320 towards a new Blackberry Passport.

Now, the one catch is, you must purchase your new Blackberry Passport from Blackberry Canada. There is a ton of fine print so I am going to try to summarize it for you in a few paragraphs but you will need to consult the website for all the details.

You need to buy your Blackberry Passport between December 1st and February 13, 2015. Then you send your phone in for the trade-in program along with relevant documentation from the Blackberry Passport itself. You will need a copy of the order confirmation AND a cut out of the IMEI number (serial number) on the Blackberry box.

Now, the phone you are trading in must be in working condition. If it is not in working condition you will not receive the trade in value and you do not get the phone back either. The phone needs to be unlocked (no-pass codes) and have the ‘kind my phone’ feature taken off the phone. As for payment:

Individual consumers will be paid via a Visa Prepaid Card from MetaBank and mailed to the address you provided on your quote 6 weeks after the Trade-in Center receives both eligible device(s) and a valid proof of purchase(s) and confirms your eligibility for the program.

I highly recommend reading the rest of the FAQ to familiarize yourself with the process.

This is a funky offer from Blackberry. I felt it worth mentioning because the Blackberry Passport costs $699 to $799 so this credit for old phones can really make a difference to your bottom line.

Mobilicity: Holiday Plan – $29/m Unlimited

Posted by on December 3, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Mobilicity: Holiday Plan   $29/m Unlimited

Sure you can save money on the odd gift or household item, but it is better to save money on everyday expenses. Enter the new holiday plan by cell provider Mobilicity: receive unlimited Canada-wide talk and text as well as North American long distance for only $29 per month.

Mobilicity had this offer back in August for back to school, so if you missed it then this is your opportunity to take advantage of it now. The offer is valid for available new activations only. Your plan will include unlimited of the following:

  • Data
  • Canada-Wide Talk
  • Text
  • North American Long Distance
  • Global Text
  • 30 Minutes North American Voice Roaming
  • Voicemail, Caller ID and Call Features

Now, after pouring over the fine print because that is where all the land mines in an agreement will be, I discovered this plan has to be on an automatic monthly payment authorization for you to get the $29 a month rate (regularly $45). If you want a monthly rate with no contract, they jack the price up to $40 a month (stupidly ridiculous in my opinion). That is still $5 off the plan’s usual $45 per month retail cost, but I find it a crappy ploy to get people to sign contracts.

They also have this little fine print bit about how “all unlimited features included in each plan/add-on, including unlimited talk, text and data features, must originate and be used within the Mobilicity Unlimited Zones”. To clarify what unlimited zones are, I have copied the following excerpt:

According to their website:

Mobilicity offers unlimited coverage within our 5 unlimited coverage areas in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. In addition to our unlimited coverage areas, we also offer nationwide coverage, covering up to 95% of the Canadian population.

Therefore, unless you live and plan to stay within those five cities for the majority of your cell use, this plan may not be worth it. However, if you do live in one of these cities – you may just have found the ticket to reducing your cell phone bill by 1/3rd, which is no small amount when you add it up each month.

I have never tried Mobilicity before, have you? If so, then leave us a comment letting us know what you think of their service.

Blackberry Store: Up to $200 Off Unlocked Blackberry Phones

Posted by on November 9, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Blackberry Store: Up to $200 Off Unlocked Blackberry Phones

The Blackberry store is selling unlocked Blackberry phones for up to $200 off their original price.

All prices are in Canadian dollars and the phones will ship from within Canada. Shipping depends upon what you buy and where it is going. The estimated shipping charges for my address were $22.70 – a bit on the steep side.

Here are the models still currently available:

The others may be restocked as this sale is supposed to be on until the end of the month. Therefore, if you are interested in the Q10 or the Z10, you might want to check back frequently during November.

The two models that are in stock are the Q5 and the Z30.

The Q5 features:

  • 8GB Internal Storage
  • 3.1” Touch Display
  • 5Mp Rear Camera
  • 1080p HD video recording
  • MicroSD Slot for Expandable Memory
  • Compatible with GSM Carriers

The Z30 features:

  • 16GB Internal Storage
  • 5″ Super AMOLED Touch Display
  • 8.0 MP Rear Camera
  • 1080p HD video recording
  • Compatible with GSM Carriers
  • Removable microSD memory card

The Z30 is also double the price of the Q5 for not quite ‘twice’ the phone. Sure, it has double the memory but both phones feature removable microSD slots for expandable memories. The Z30 is larger with a 5″ touch display while the Q5 only has a 3.1″ touch display. The Q5 also feels more ‘old Blackberry’ with a dedicated keyboard still built into the bottom. However, the Z30 has gone the way of mainstream smartphones where the display completely replaces the keyboard.

I am a huge fan of unlocked phones as they allow you to change your carriers depending on who has the best deal on phone plans. My own unlocked cell phone has been with three different phone carriers because I found a better plan that saved me a great deal of money per month by changing. In addition, being locked into a phone plan can be toxic – especially if your phone dies but your phone plan is still active. I think you should always buy your phone outright and forget about contracts. Even a two-year contract can be quite limiting.

This is a very good offer from Blackberry and I hope our Moosers can take advantage of a phone or two. I hope that there will be a restock or two in the works for other models.

Best Buy Canada: Bell Samsung S275 Prepaid Cellphone | Was $50 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 8, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: Bell Samsung S275 Prepaid Cellphone | Was $50 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Are you looking for an affordable prepaid cell phone? For a limited time, Best Buy is having a great sale on their Bell Samsung S275 Prepaid Cellphone, which normally retails for $49.99. Today, you can get this no-contract cell phone for just $19.99 (plus $1.99 shipping). You’re saving $30 off of the regular price! This deal will only be around for a very limited time, so get it before it’s gone!

The Bell Samsung S275 Prepaid Cellphone is a very basic cell phone. It has a 1.3MP camera, and is Bluetooth compatible, but it’s not very advanced by any means. However, it allows you to use a cell phone as it was originally intended to be used: To make phone calls and to text message others.

If you know of anyone that still doesn’t have a cell phone because they don’t want to be locked into a long-term contract, this Bell Samsung S275 Prepaid Cellphone would be the perfect gift for them. When it’s only $19.99, it makes it an affordable present for the holidays!

I remember having no-contract cell phones until I turned 22. Before then, I was just a pay-as-you-go customer with Rogers, since I was pretty much using my cell phone for texting and emergencies. Nowadays, I have a contract, but I highly recommend a prepaid phone for those that don’t really plan to use their cell phone very much.

If you were to purchase this Bell Samsung S275 Prepaid Cellphone at Future Shop, it would cost you $49.99. Listed below is a brief review of this cell phone from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

Just got one yesterday and had it running in about 15 minutes after getting it activated…here are my first impressions 1) Easy to navigate through the various phone settings. 2) Cannot select ring-tones; comes with a single prefixed ring tone. 3) Very light and quite small in size. 4) Can send text messages and navigate the internet but screen is rather small for this feature. 5) Fonts and colour are easy to adjust overall a recommended purchase.

If you’ve been longing to bring back the flip phone, now’s your chance! Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers! I hope you all have a great evening!

TinyDeal: DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses for iPhone Samsung Cellphones (Presell) Only $3.66 (Expired)

If you’re looking for an exceptionally affordable virtual reality experience, this is it. At this time, TinyDeal is offering up some intriguing DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses, which are compatible with a myriad of smartphones. They normally cost $11.11, but you can now get them for just $3.66! As an added bonus, you’ll also get free shipping! This is a presell (the first batch of these units sold out quickly), so they won’t be shipped until October 6. Since this item is coming from China, it may take a while for it to arrive (according to TinyDeal’s website, it should take between 7-25 business days), but remember Bargainmoosers – it’s still free!

Oculus Rift, eat your heart out! These DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses just take a few minutes to assemble. Once it’s put together, just slide in your cell phone, and enjoy! You can see how it works by clicking here. It’s compatible with smartphones that have 4 – 5 inch screens, such as the iPhone, Google Nexus 4/5/6, Samsung phones, HTC One, Xiaomi Mi3, and many others.

TinyDeal is fairly new to Bargainmoose. Even though they’re based in China, they offer free worldwide shipping to customers for packages that are under 2 kg. So far, we’ve seen some very interesting deals from this company! If you’re uneasy about dealing with a company that takes longer than average to ship your order, then I recommend that you use Paypal when dealing with them.

I’m very intrigued by this item! It took me back to a time when I tried to make my own “virtual reality” system out of a cardboard milk carton and pictures. It should come as no surprise that my experiment failed miserably. However, this product is very affordable, and it looks like it’s getting a fair amount of attention!

This interesting gadget currently retails for $7.64 US at Aliexpress and $9.99 US at Tabletland. If you check out the reviews for these DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses, you’ll see that they have received universal praise from those that have used them. I’ve included a brief review from a satisfied TinyDeal customer below:

Such a cool idea. It’s so easy to put together and, for the price point, it provides more value than could reasonably be expected. Thanks for helping me to introduce so many people to VR so easily!

If you want to try out a cool gadget that seems to be selling out quickly, then pick up these DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses! I hope you all enjoy your day, Bargainmoosers!

Shop.ca: Otterbox Phone Cases Only $29.97

Posted by on January 7, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Shop.ca: Otterbox Phone Cases Only $29.97

Shop.ca has 40% off all Otterbox phone cases selling them now for only $29.97, was $49.99. I price compared a few of them to stores like Best Buy, and Walmart, who offer them for $40 and up.

I have an Otterbox for my Samsung phone and it works great considering my kids often steal my phone and it gets banged around quite a bit. I personally don’t understand why these phones don’t have such protection built-in – that just makes sense to me. My husband spent over $80 on his Otterbox for his iPhone then decided it looked nicer without the case. Within a day the phone fell out of his pocket when he bent over to get something and now the screen is smashed. Looks so nice with that smashed screen now. Be smart, protect your phone!

If you are worried about how it looks, there are lots of rugged styles like this manly AP Blazed or the camo/orange combo case with holster. For something more feminine, the pink camo is nice and so is the AP Pink. Basic black is always a good choice too.

Shipping will be free, no matter what you buy, as they have totally free shipping with no minimum.

Roam Mobility: Super Cheap Talk+Text+Data Plans for Travelling to the U.S.

Get super cheap talk, text and data with Roam Mobility’s U.S. phone plans!

I’ve been looking for this service forever. Every time I go to the states I call Bell in the vain hope that I won’t have to pay an insane amount of money for almost no service. It never happens. I always end up just turning off my data and using my talk and text extremely sparingly. Roam Mobility offers super cheap plans that can include talk, text and data, just talk and text or just data for super cheap while you’re travelling to the states. Make sure you check out their plans.

You need to pick up either a $19.99 SIM for your unlocked phone, a $49.99 Roam Mobility Breeze phone or a $99.99 Liberty mobile hotspot from their products page then you get a plan to cover the number of days and amount of data you’ll need for your trip to the states. The plans, like I mentioned, are super cheap so make sure you check them out. I will definitely be getting one of these for my next U.S. shopping trip coming up around March. I might even get two so my wife can have one too.

Google Play Canada Store: Nexus 4 16GB Now $249 (Save $110)

Google Play Store has substantially dropped the price on their Google Nexus 4. The 8GB has already sold out, but they still have the 16GB in stock for only $249, originally $359. You save $110!

The phone is loaded with tons of features. It has access to the Google store, which has a ton of free games in it. It also uses Google Maps, which is one of the best map systems out there. The Nexus 4 is the first phone with 360° panoramas and it charges wirelessly – no cords needed!

This is a substantial price drop from the previous price and certainly worth picking up if you are in the market for a brand new unlocked phone. It is best to buy your phone outright so that you can get the best plan possible without having to be on contract. Then, you can change plans whenever you see a better one. Be sure to check out the article 3 Types Of Cell Phone Plans Compared to see how you can save money through different cell plans.

I believe shipping is free – I demoed a cart as far as I could, and was not getting shipping charges on this deal.

Virgin Mobile Canada: Bring Your Own Phone – Save 10%

Virgin Mobile Canada: Bring Your Own Phone   Save 10%

I recently learned of a really great offer from Virgin Mobile Canada that certainly has me reconsidering phone companies. If you bring your own phone to Virgin Mobile Canada, you will get 10% off your monthly plan.

I handle the cell phones in my family, for both my hubby and my parents. I recently was talking to Virgin Mobile since my parents’ phones are with them, and my Father’s cell phone had finally died, so he needed a new one. All we wanted was a cheap basic phone. After having The Source trying to up-sell my Mother to an HTC and telling her we would have to change his plan, I called Virgin Mobile directly and got some amazing advice from them. Buy the phone outright, which was my plan already (Dad’s cost $70) and then call into Virgin Mobile to activate it and switch over the numbers.

By buying the Virgin phone outright (which works for us because he is hard on phones) and then calling into Virgin to activate it, we qualified for 10% off my Dad’s cell plan! So his cell plan dropped from $50 a month down to $45 a month, which is awfully sweet. My Dad is on the Silver Plan that features unlimited Canada-Wide calling, which he needs for work. This is pretty thrilling. We owned his previous cell-phone before as well, but they didn’t have this promotion. Now he will save $5 a month and in a year his savings will have nearly paid for his phone.

This offer is available for a limited time only for SIM card activations on a month-to-month agreement with select monthly plans. Check it out!

Just as a side note, my personal phone is with Fido, but I also own my own phone. I really hate getting tied into contracts and I often jump carriers for the best cell phone deals. On a month-to-month agreement I can do that. Also, when I got my iPhone, I could not have found such a good plan if I had wanted to get it through a carrier. Usually, plans for iPhones are much more expensive than for Androids when you are getting the combo to get a discount on your phone. By buying outright, I got a very good plan. I highly suggest it.
