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.

Posted by on December 9, 2013 at 11:00 PM

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)

Posted by on August 30, 2013 at 3:00 PM

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%

Posted by on August 12, 2013 at 6:30 PM

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.

Wind Mobile Canada: Unlimited Data & Province-Wide Talk – $33/m

Posted by on August 11, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Wind Mobile Canada: Unlimited Data & Province Wide Talk   $33/m

Wind Mobile has a freaking-awesome plan on right now. Pay only $33 a month for unlimited data, province-wide talk, and global text messaging! The plan also includes World-Saver, which saves you money on international calls.

If you are a new customer, the process is pretty simple: get a new phone on a two year tab and hook up this plan while you are at it. You will need to go in store (try Future Shop or any of the big boys that handle this provider) for this promo.

Now, if you are an existing customer, there are two ways you can get in on this awesome plan:

  1. If you are on a bigger plan and wish to downgrade you must CALL WIND and pay a $25 processing free, and one month of the promotional plan fees, at the time of the switch.
  2. If you are on a smaller plan and want to upgrade you CALL WIND and migrate with ease, without paying any fees.

This deal is totally not compatible with bringing your own cell phone in, or just buying one outright. You have to tab up your phone.

For more details, see the link above or visit your local store.

I think this is awesome, because so many people spend an absolute fortune on their phones! I know my bill is nearly $60 a month, just for a cell phone. If I think in terms of a year, that is over $700 a year, which is more than the initial cost of my iPhone: kind of scary. When deals like these come out I get totally stoked, because $33 is a great price for a monthly plan with this many features. If Wind was available where I lived, this plan would cut my monthly, and thus yearly, cost nearly in half. Money for thought!

MyAKA: Protect Your Phone Number With Free 7 Day Trial

Posted by on June 20, 2013 at 10:00 AM

MyAKA: Protect Your Phone Number With Free 7 Day Trial

Not sure if you want to give out your number or your money? Well, don’t give out your number and do it for free with MyAKA!

What is MyAKA? Well, I’m glad you asked because as it turns out, MyAKA knows exactly what it is.

MyAKA is a privacy protection service which allows you to signup for a second mobile number with a local area code. This number can then be given to others when you wish to protect your real phone number. This service will function exactly like a regular mobile number, allowing you to text or call without the recipient ever seeing your real number. When using the MyAKA system, those who you are corresponding with will only see your MyAKA number, keeping your real mobile information protected, safe and secure.

Basically what MyAKA is, is a phone number you can use to cover up your real number. People can call and text you and you can call and text them back, and all they will ever see is your MyAKA number. The free trial lasts seven days or 50 credits. One credit is equal to one minute of talk time or one text message. Pricing afterwards is actually very reasonable. It starts at $9.99/month and that gets you 100 credits. That works out to about $0.10/credit. You can go all they way up through four price tiers up to $49.99/month for 1000 credits. That ends up being $0.05/credit. For every purchase, MyAKA will donate $1 to Break the Cycle.

The service requires no app, smartphone, software, wifi, 3G, 4G, etc… All you need is a cell phone.

Amazon Canada: OtterBox iPhone 4/4S Defender Only $27.24

Posted by on May 5, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Amazon Canada: OtterBox iPhone 4/4S Defender Only $27.24

If you need a case for your iPhone 4/4S, the Otterbox Defender is an amazing case. Amazon is selling it for only $27.24 and my husband just bought one a few weeks ago for $70 at Rogers, so this is an amazing deal. There are other colours where the price varies a little, but you’ll get it for about $26 – $28.

My husband needed a sturdy and secure case for his phone after two of his Blackberries lasted only a year each. One died a slow death after a concert in the pouring rain, the other just didn’t have a chance. He also bought me an OtterBox for my Samsung phone when it began acting funny, after constantly being stolen by my kids.

With three layers of protection, you still have complete access to the phone. It has a built-in screen protector and port covers to keep out debris. The silicone case is meant to absorb the impact when the phone is dropped. Not just durable, it looks good too, and comes in a variety of colours.

They also have this case for other types of phones (as I’ve mentioned), just do a search for OtterBox.

Get free shipping for this item.

Black’s Canada: $150 Visa Gift Card With Koodo or Telus Activation

Posted by on April 9, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Blacks Canada: $150 Visa Gift Card With Koodo or Telus Activation

Black’s Canada is handing out free money for activating the new smartphone you were already going to get! What’s not to love?

All you have to do to get the $150 Visa gift card is activate a new Koodo plan or a two or three year Telus plan. If you happen to be going with Telus, Black’s will also throw in their “Prints for Life” package for as long as you have the plan. That gives you 1000 free prints per year. This is an in-store only deal but you’re gonna wanna go down to the store to look at the phones anyway.

I think Black’s is doing something very cool. It would be very easy for a photography store to go under nowadays. When your business has traditionally been printing photos and framing, the new digital era is kinda scary. They’ve done all the standard stuff that you need to do in that business but they have gone further. Instead of just accepting digital images and printing them off, they’ve expanded into digital picture frames and mobile devices among others. The mobile phone thing, I think, was their best move. They have realized that the new camera of the masses is the smartphone. With a good camera on your phone, you don’t really need to go get a camera anymore.

For more savings from Black’s check out our Black’s Coupon Code page.

Fido Canada: Unlimited Plan $60/m + 1 Month Free

Fido Canada has an excellent promotion on for a cell phone plan. On any two year plan (with contract, works on Androids and seemingly everything but iPhones) you can get an unlimited across Canada talk and international text package for $60 a month with your first month free.

The unlimited plan includes:

  • Unlimited Incoming and Outgoing texts
  • Unlimited Outgoing international texts
  • Unlimited Picture and Video messaging
  • Unlimited Anytime Minutes

  • Unlimited Evenings and weekends
  • Canada-wide long distance
  • Visual Voicemail Plus and Call Display with Name Display
  • 1 GB Data

Plus you get that 1 month free – a $60 (+ tax) value!

I’m with Fido and despite a few issues with reception, I am the most happy on their unlimited plan than I have been with any other carrier (and I have been through four carriers). The price is reasonable and the unlimited leaves me with no worries – I always know what my cell bill is going to be.
