Chapters Indigo Canada: The Spark Only $15

Chapters Indigo Canada: The Spark Only $15

Chapters Indigo has the book The Spark on sale for Monday and Tuesday only for only $14.25, regularly $29.95. Amazon will often beat Chapters Indigo’s price, but this time, they don’t, as they are selling it for $18.77.

I have heard from multiple people that this book is an absolutely amazing story and a must-read, which is why I am taking the time to blog this for you. I haven’t yet had time to read it, but I may be getting it during this sale to read on a flight I’ll be taking soon.

The story is a mother’s tale about a son with Autism and his and her journey through it all. While others only saw the autism, this mother of course, saw the beauty and spark in her son and knew he could go further than others predicted. At age 14 and now studying quantum physics.

With a son who has a label and people only seeing that label, this book is crying out for me to read it. I think it will be an inspiring and encouraging story for any mother to read.

There are several reviews on Chapter Indigo’s site and they are sing the praises of this story as being amazing and a “triumph of the human spirit”.

You’ll need to spend $25 to get free shipping, so I might suggest the other deals of the week, as a number of them are on books and are great deals too!

SCENE Rewards Freebie: 250 Free Points With Purchase Of Select Books From Chapters Indigo

Posted by on April 9, 2014 at 10:30 PM

SCENE Rewards Freebie: 250 Free Points With Purchase Of Select Books From Chapters Indigo

Are you a book and movie lover? Then use both of these hobbies to your advantage by getting an awesome freebie from Scene Rewards! With purchase of a select title from Chapters Indigo, you can earn yourself 250 free Scene points!

I absolutely love Scene Rewards. Although I haven’t had the chance to go in a while, I used to go to the movies every Tuesday to take advantage of the cheapie Tuesday deal (50% off the ticket) and to get 120 scene points (100 for viewing the movie and 20 for buying the ticket online). The best part about all this is that within a short time frame, I would have enough points (1,000) for a free movie, which I would make sure to redeem on a week-end and for one in either IMAX, UltraAVX or 3D.

The current featured list of books is inspired by a “read the book; see the movie” kind of theme and is ongoing until the end of the month of April. With 30 books to choose from in total, here are just some of the books that stood out to me:

Keep in mind that all the prices listed above are those that Chapters automatically offers to Plum Rewards members, a free program that awards points and lower prices on all books.

Once the book has been purchased, you will then receive an e-mail with a special PIN code to enter at Scene’s Indigo page. Plus, you can get as many books as you want for even more points! Just don’t forget that it takes 1,000 points for a free movie, although you can also use them on a variety of other rewards as well, such as free snacks, DVDs, Blu-Rays etc.

As usual, shipping is also free on all orders over $25.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Up to 76% Off Hair Accessories

Chapters Indigo Canada: Up to 76% Off Hair Accessories

I just found a plethora of deals in the Chapters Indigo Canada sale section on hair accessories. Save up to 76% on head bands, flower clips, and more.

Accessorizing my hair has never been a priority as I don’t want to spend a lot of money on pretty clips and lovely headbands. However, I do know how much nicer it looks when I do accessorize a bit so I am always on the look out for sales.

This Tulle Flower Headband – Black would fit in well with my generally gothic-esque wardrobe of black on black. I like tulle more than an cloth flower (though they have those too) and the sale price is pretty sweet. originally $29.50, the headband is now on sale for $7.38.

Sometimes I don’t want to have a full headband and would rather just shove a clip in to hold my hair in place and out of my eyes. This Flower Clip – Navy-and-Purple is both beautiful and functional. The price is also rather alluring: originally $39, the clip is on sale for just $9.50.

If you have long hair and just like to throw it back in a ponytail, then pick up this Leather Bow Hair Tie to spice up your routine for just $4, originally $16.

You will get free shipping when you spend $25 or more so load up your cart with a few new accessories.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Libratone Zipp AirPlay Speaker Only $300

Posted by on March 31, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Libratone Zipp AirPlay Speaker Only $300

Chapters Indigo has a fantastic deal on the Libratone Zipp AirPlay speaker, now only $300, was $450. I price compared this item at Apple where it is $399.95 and I couldn’t find it any other online Canadian retailer. At it is $366.67. So, you are definitely getting a steal with this speaker.

This portable speaker isn’t just an audio fantasy, it is a showpiece. It comes with three Italian wool covers in three different colours to suit your mood – pepper black, raspberry read and icy blue.

The Libratone Zipp Airplay has PlayDirect, which is a technology that eliminates the need for a wi-fi access point or router for you to wirelessly stream your music. It also has FullRoom technology, which means no matter where you are in the room, the music will be just as clear as it would be on the other side of the room.

I totally need a speaker for my music as listening to it on my computer really bites. I love that I can dress up this speaker as I’d like it and the covers look durable and long-lasting. The audiophile reviewer of this speaker says he/she is absolutely “flabbergasted” by the quality of this speaker.

Shipping would be free on this item.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 25% Off Party Supplies & Gift Wrap

With Spring and Summer comes parties. It seems every weekend we are attending a party or even hosting one. With three boys I like to stock up on party supplies when I find them on sale, instead of having to pay full price right before the party when I’m scrambling. Get 25% off party supplies and gift wrap at Chapters Indigo.

Chapters Indigo has some really cute party decorations from the Meri Meri line. Decorate for Easter with this ultra-cute Funny Bunnies garland kit. This could be for a party or just for fun to add a little whimsy to the bunny season. Was $15.95, now $11.96.

I’m totally crushing on this 100% recycled owl roll wrap from Waste Not Paper. Wrapping paper can be so wasteful but it really dresses up a gift and these owls are gorgeous and your gift will totally stand out from the rest. I love that this wrapping paper is made for the eco-minded. Was $8.50, now $6.38.

Chapters Indigo Canada: $20 Off BEM Wireless Speakers – Now $49.95

Posted by on March 29, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Chapters Indigo Canada: $20 Off BEM Wireless Speakers   Now $49.95

Chapters Indigo Canada is selling these beautiful little cube BEM Wireless Mobile Speakers for $20 off their regular price. Originally $69.95, they are now on sale for $49.95.

This little square speaker comes in three colour choices: red, white, or purple. It is a tiny little speaker measuring only 2.5″ cubed so it takes up less room than a tennis ball and offers tunes wherever life takes you. It connects via Bluetooth to your phone, tablet, other device of miscellaneous origin. The cube also accepts some basic commands as it has a volume up and down button built in and a play/pause button in case you need to suddenly stop the music.

I checked out PCMag which is pretty known for reviewing electronics and they gave the BEM Wireless Speaker a 4/5 rating with the following comments:

Pros: Very portable design. Rich, full audio at moderate-to-very-loud volume levels. Includes actual AC adapter rather than just USB charging cable (a rarity in budget speaker options).
Cons: Distorts at maximum volume levels.
Bottom Line: The Bem Wireless Mobile Speaker packs more powerful audio into its tiny frame than some speakers twice the size.

That review is at the original price point so at this lower price point this speaker is pretty awesome.

You will get free shipping on this because it costs over $25.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Free Shipping, No Minimum Spend On Now!

Chapters Indigo Canada: Free Shipping, No Minimum Spend On Now!

Starting today and good through to Thursday the 27th of March 2014, the Chapters Indigo online store is offering free shipping. And what’s even sweeter is that you don’t have any minimum spend requirements to place your order!

This type of free shipping event happens rarely at Chapters, maybe two to three times in the whole year, so it’s worth taking advantage of it. Here’s my advice: think of the next few birthdays or events coming up in your family, and stock up on some gifts now. Shopping online at Chapters, getting the parcels delivered free to your door – always a pleasing, stress-free experience! I have two family birthdays coming up in April, plus a relative’s big anniversary party. I’ve already bought all the gifts when I saw special offers on various items online. Chapters Indigo Canada: Free Shipping, No Minimum Spend On Now!

There are a few deals on certain areas of the Chapters site right now, to have a look at. For example, there is 20% off select Lego toys, including Ninjago, Duplo, Chima and City. Ever since “Santa” delivered some for my three year old daughter for Christmas, the Lego has been played with almost every day. It’s such a fantastic toy and brilliant for the little one’s imagination. However, it’s not cheap to build up a Lego collection, so always worth checking out any Lego sales if you are a collector.

The Chapters Indigo deals of the week page could also be worth a glance. There are some Selby books for $20 each, $100 off the Kobo Arc 10 HD 16GB tablet with three free kids’ eBooks, and $10 off the Roku 2 Media Streamer.

Don’t forget about our free shipping page too though – this is a page with many more stores which offer free shipping with no minimum spend, all the time.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Lena Dunham’s Book Only $14

Posted by on March 24, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Lena Dunhams Book Only $14

If you love the show Girls, you are not alone, that is an amazing show! If you haven’t seen it, seriously, go out and find a way to download it or buy it, but watch it! If watching television is not your thing, you could still get Lena Dunham’s book, because Chapters Indigo has it on pre-order for the best price around.

As a Girls fan and a book fan, I can’t wait to read Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned. Lena Dunham is hilarious, witty and very insightful. The book sounds like the type of book she is actually writing in the show, which also sounds like a riot. Hailed as today’s Nora Ephron, you know that Lena Dunham will have huge staying power throughout her career.

Why she wants you to read it:

If I can take what I’ve learned in this life and make one treacherous relationship or degrading job easier for you, perhaps even prevent you from becoming temporarily vegan, then every misstep of mine will have been worthwhile.

Normally, Amazon has the cheapest prices on books, even with the Chapters sales. This time, they don’t. They are selling it for $20.06, was $32. Chapters Indigo has it for $14.25. Here’s the thing though – the books isn’t being released until October, but in October once the hype is up, you’ll be paying the full $32 for it, or close to it. Order it now and be happily surprised when it shows up in the mail.

You’ll need to spend a bit more to get to the $25 threshold for free shipping.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Select Walking Dead Books

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Select Walking Dead Books

Last night my entire Facebook feed was filled with statuses like “oh no” and “snap” and other crazy comments from Walking Dead fans who were watching the show. While I’ve never seen the show, I hear I’m totally missing out. If you are a fan, you might appreciate this sale with 50% off select Walking Dead books.

There are actually only three books available in this sale, but I priced compared them all and they are the best deal at Chapters Indigo. The first one is the Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1. With over 1000 pages, it is comprised of the first eight volumes of the series. It was $62.95, now $29.90. Compare it at $39.46 at Amazon.

The other two books on sale are the Walking Dead Volume 19 TP: March to War and Volume 20: All Out War Part 1. Both books sound very creepy and exciting for those who love the undead stories. The first was $15.95, now $7.57 ($11.51 at Amazon). The second book is $7.17, was $15.95 (also $7.17 at Amazon). While you might get the same deal on the volume 20 book, you won’t get free shipping unless you spend over $25 at Amazon. I suggest you get the Compendium, and then add the other two books to your cart and everything will ship free from Chapters. Shipping from Chapters is also free when you spend over $25.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off K-Way Folding Backpacks – Now $32.50

Posted by on March 12, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off K Way Folding Backpacks   Now $32.50

Chapters Canada is offering 50% off the K-Way folding backpack. Originally $65, the backpack is now on sale for $32.50.

Both the Yellow K-Way and the Pink K-Way are still in stock and ready to be delivered. The idea behind these backpacks is they carry your load without adding any more weight to it. The folding backpack is both lightweight and also waterproof so your books, supplies, and snacks do not get damaged. The bag is made out of coated nylon.

When you have nothing in the backpack it folds up into a tiny little packet which is perfect for storage. Storing backpacks is such a pain. Right now I have one wedged in between my storage stand in the storage room and the wall, and there is another backpack under the bed. I would prefer to have them just capsize into tiny little pouches that I can stick in a drawer or in my front closet with no fuss. I am really liking these K-Way backpacks.

You get free shipping at Chapters Indigo with orders of $25 or more.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Buy A Book & Get a BOGO Free For The Ripley’s Aquarium

Posted by on March 10, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Buy A Book & Get a BOGO Free For The Ripleys Aquarium

If you live in Ontario, even though it is day one of March break,  your kids might already be driving you up the wall! Take them to the brand new Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto and give them something to do. If you are thinking it might be a tad expensive, you could work in a teachable moment, by one, teaching them about aquariums and teaching them to find a great deal. Right now when you buy the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada book for $16.96, you’ll get a coupon for a buy one, get one free ticket at the aquarium. This offer is only valid in-store.

I found the book online at Chapters, and it is actually on sale, but by buying it full-price in-store, you’ll save more than the $4 off you’ll get online. The book is all about the aquarium and was published to commemorate the opening of the Toronto aquarium. It has interesting and informative facts, plus gorgeous pictures. You could buy the book one day to teach your kids about sea life and then surprise them by taking them the next day.

Tickets are $29.98 for adults, $19.98 for youth and seniors and $9.98 for kids aged 3-5. Under age two is free. This means the book will technically save you $30 (or $13 plus a free book if you want to look at it that way). If you really wanted to be frugal, you could buy the book as a gift for others and save on your whole group.

I’ve been thinking about going to the aquarium for a while, but the price has me put off since my family of five would cost $110. With this deal I’ll get the book and only spend $80, plus the cost of the book.

Chapters Canada: $100 Off Kobo Arc 10HD

Chapters Canada: $100 Off Kobo Arc 10HD

I’m very excited about this deal and very tempted by it! Get $100 off the Kobo Arc 10HD tablet at Chapters. This normally sells for $399, and is now $299. Here’s the thing, Best Buy has also reduced its price down to $299. Both are on until the end of the month. It is up to you to decide where you want to buy it, but this is a great deal.

As I’ve blogged before, I bought my kids two Kobo tablets for Christmas. I was tempted to buy myself one, but really want the larger screen for watching movies, working, writing and making recipes in the kitchen. I couldn’t fathom paying $400 plus tax for this tablet, but now with $100 off, it is almost irresistible to me.

Apparently this tablet has the world’s highest resolution for a 10″ screen, along with surround sound for a really great movie watching and web browsing experience. You can also do 720p HD videos on 16GB of memory. On top of this deal, you’ll also get three free kids books, and this is both from Chapters and Best Buy so I’ll assume it is a Kobo deal.

There is one review on Chapters that says they love their tablet, but weren’t at first convinced to buy an Android and now have changed their mind. Everyone is always talking iPad, and sure if you want to pay the $500+ for the larger screened iPad, or you can save yourself $200 for this one that does the same job without the iconic apple logo on the back.

Shipping is free on this item.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 30% Off Art Supplies

Looking for something for your little (or big) artist to do over the break? Chapters Indigo has a great selection of art supplies on sale for 30% off.

While I think art supplies are great for any age, the ones in this sale look like they are for older children and adults, although my 6-year-old has one of the sets and he takes good care of it. He loves to draw and paint, so I really love to foster this love of art and give him everything he needs to become who he wants. I actually failed art in high school because besides writing, I am just not artistic. I can’t draw a stick man for the life of me, never mind any sort of intricate piece. My son must get it from his father.

This Just Art Set is a mixed media set in a nice hard wood case. With oil, watercolour and pencils, he or she can make the masterpieces of their choice. Was $16, now $11.20.

If you want to learn how to cartoon, this Humongous Book of Cartooning book is the perfect starter instruction manual. Was $26.99, now $16.92.

This 642 Things to Draw Journal is perfect for the beginning artist to learn to draw various items. My son would love this! Was $19.95, now $13.96.

Shipping is free on orders over $25.
