Chapters Indigo Canada: 75% Off Minimus Decorative Pots – Now $9.50

Posted by on June 29, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 75% Off Minimus Decorative Pots   Now $9.50

Sometimes the Chapters Indigo Sale section really has some incredible deals that you just do not want to pass up. Currently, they are offering 75% off these adorable little Minimus Decorative Pots. Originally $39.50, these little pots are now on sale for $9.50 each. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

These pots are not available in store – they are online only product. While the first image makes these pots look rather large, because there is nothing in for scale, they are actually cute little things. Their approximately measurements are 4.5″ x 4.5″ x 5.2″. They make the most adorable decorations on book shelves, mantels, dressers, and more. I am not sure if these are safe for outside use, but you could always put them on a patio or deck. I have a covered balcony off my house and I could totally see using these out there.

These pots come in denim, mint, or yellow and I cannot pick a colour! They are all so pretty! Rather than a blue jean ‘denim’ I would more likely this colour to a vibrant robin’s egg blue. The yellow looks like diluted sunshine and the mint – well – mint is one of my favourite colours. It is like green and white got together and had a child. It also reminds me of After Eight drinks.

I would probably buy a few of these little pots to mix and match around the house. Because of their size, I really think they work best in pairs or in threesomes.

The little pots are great for small bunches of flowers, faux flowers, leather flowers (I own some!) and other things. You can also leave them empty and just use them for decoration. In a child’s room, I could see these being used as pots to collect miscellaneous goods. I used to store funky rocks in a pot I owned. You could also buy one of each colour and use them for saving change. Each colour is a different currency. Use them to hold pencils, crayons, markers, pipe cleaners and more. While plastic containers are more child safe, older children can use the pots as organizational containers.

Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more, thus three pots would qualify for free shipping.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Illume Candles

Posted by on June 24, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Illume Candles

Chapters Indigo is offering 50% off Illume Candles right now. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I LOVE candles. They are one of the best inventions in the world. Light one while drinking a glass of wine and reading a book. Light a couple while in the bath tub with piles of bubbles floating around you. Illuminate your bedroom in the evening with candle light. Romantic dinners are nearly impossible without either a) a fireplace or b) candles. I am not sure if it is a female thing but most women I know just love candles. A few guys I know like them too.

The Illume Bella Collection Poured Glass Candle collection is a series of 9oz candles poured into a glass holder. They come in various fragrances like Island Moonlight, Golden Sandalwood, and Midnight Orchid. I rather enjoy the scent of sandalwood and of bergamot. I think my favourite scent would be the blend of fresh bergamont, blooming jasmine, and golden pear. Originally $19.50, these candles are on sale for $9.75 each. Purchase one or more for your personal care times – squeezed in between work and children.

Each candle has a burn time of roughly 50 hours. At $9.75 for 50 hours, you are looking at just over 19¢ per hour.

For a little more decadence, try the Illume Bella Collecton Tin Candle (10 oz) in Midnight Orchid or Beachwood & Bergamot. Originally $22, these candles are on sale for $11. There are a couple reasons why you may wish to pay a bit more for this edition. First, you do receive an extra ounce of premium quality soy candle. In addition, the tin candle has a top – lid – that goes on the top. This will keep the dust off your candle – a very helpful feature I find. No matter how often I dust, I never seem to get all of it. Candles, especially freshly melted wax, attract dust like no tomorrow.

There are a few other non-Illume candles at 50% off as well. This White Pillar Candle- 4″x12″ was $28 and is now $14. This Ivory Pillar Candle- 6″x6″ was $34 and is now $17. Neither of these candles comes in a votive or hurricane, thus a holder would need to be purchased separately, or you might risk the occasional drip. I do like the multi-wick style of the fatter candle.

Minecraft is really big right now: with children and their parents. Pick up these Minecraft Vinyl figures to decorate your child’s room with their favourite characters. Each character was $34.95 and is now $17.50. Choose from:

Plenty of toys in the sale section are up to 50% off. This Fijit Friends Yippits – Skippa (Light Green) is rather cute that I had to find out what it was. The Fijit friends are dancing pets that perform tricks. The more your child plays with the toy, the better it gets. Skippa comes with a built-in clap sensor to understand commands your child gives it. Originally $49.95, this Fijit is now on sale for $25.

Combine your child’s love for Play-Doh and playing doctor with this Disney Jr. Doc Mcstuffins Check Up Time set. The set includes three character cutters, book mold, stethoscope mold, two-piece extruder, and three cans of Play-Doh. Originally $34.95, the set is on sale for $17.50.

Where To Buy The Popular Bunch O Balloons Toy In Canada

Posted by on June 23, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Where To Buy The Popular Bunch O Balloons Toy In Canada

This summer you can expect the Bunch O Balloons toy to be immensely popular. Sales are already sky-rocketing – and you can probably see why. Everyone is asking where they can buy Bunch O Balloons. Here is your answer! Note that these Bunch O Balloons are generally sold as a pack of 3. Each pack contains 100 self-sealing water balloons.

There are a few Canadian retailers with this adored toy. The problem is finding them in stock. That is what you have us for! I have gathered a list of Canadian retailers that carry the Bunch O Balloons toy and provided information on their stock level, shipping options and more. So if you’re ready to fill and tie hundreds of water balloons within minutes, then get shopping. Say goodbye to the hassle of preparing for a water balloon fight this summer. All you have to do is connect the Bunch O Balloons Toy attachment to a hose and before you know it you will have 100 water balloons at your dispense. The water balloons are also self-sealing. I think my jaw just hit the floor.. This might just be the best thing since sliced bread. I used to get blisters on my fingers from tieing so many water balloons for our annual “End Of School” water balloon fight with all of the neighbourhood kids.

Take a look at the Canadian retailers that carry Zuru’s Bunch O Balloons:

Canadian TireCanadian Tire has a 3 pack of these Zuru Bunch O’ Balloons for just $12.99. Unfortunately they cannot be purchased online, you’ll have to enter your postal code and select a pickup location to check the inventory of your local Canadian Tire store. Looks like all of my local Canadian Tire stores are sold out already.

Chapters Indigo CanadaChapters.Indigo.ca has their Bunch O Balloons 3 pack listed for $14.95. Unfortunately they are on re-order online and can only be purchased in store right now, until there are more in stock. You can click “find in store” to see where you can get some Bunch O Balloons near you, but the price may vary a little bit. My local Chapters store has them in stock *fist pump*!

London Drugs CanadaIf you want to purchase these Bunch O Balloons but don’t want to leave your house to do so, then don’t fret. LondonDrugs.com still has some in stock for just $12.99. London Drugs sells this adored source of entertainment in a 3 pack as well, and you won’t get to pick your colours unfortunately. London Drugs has free in-store pickup or free shipping on orders over $200. Chances are you’re not about to spend $200 on water balloons though, right? Standard shipping can cost you up to $10 depending on your location in Canada.

Mastermind Toys CanadaI love heading into this store with my toddler. Right now Mastermind Toys Canada is selling the Bunch O Balloons 3 packs for $14.99, but they are no longer in stock online. That means that this is yet another Canadian retailer that you have to check your local store for inventory.

Party City CanadaPartyCity.ca by far has the best price on these Bunch O Water Balloons. Unfortunately they are sold out online, so getting this popular toy for just $9.99 sounds a little far-fetched. You can check your local Party City store for inventory though, just give them a call. Unfortunately there is no way to check via their website.

I just watched a few reviews on YouTube for this Bunch O Balloons product and I must admit, I am impressed. You need to get your hands on this product for some fun this summer. The only time consuming part of your water balloon fights are going to be picking up all of the dead balloons now. I am excited that I won’t have blisters from knotting hundreds of balloons each year.

Moosers, have you tried this popular Bunch O Balloons toy? If not, will you try it out? Let us know in the comments below.

Chapters Indigo: 71% Off Double-Sided Throw Was $50 | Now $14 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 22, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Chapters Indigo: 71% Off Double Sided Throw Was $50 | Now $14 (EXPIRED)

HOT deal alert! Chapters Indigo Canada is selling the Double-Sided Throw in pale Khaki for 71% off its regular price. Originally $49.50, the throw is now on sale for $14!

I just love this deal! You so rarely find a sizable throw for such a reasonable price. This throw measures 60” x 50″. That is a fantastic size for throwing on a kid’s bed as an extra blanket at night. At this price, you won’t care if they drag it around the house to build a tent, cuddle up in while watching morning cartoons and eating toast, or use it as a carpet in their new tree fort.

For the adults, you can use this as a decorative throw on an accent chair or on your bed. Personally, I would turn this throw into a couch blanket. Curl up under this blanket and sip a hot chocolate (or glass of wine) while watching your favourite movie.

Your pets may even try and adopt it as their blanket. At $14, it costs less than most pet beds so I might just let my cat (Mr. Ghost) claim it instead of buying him a new bed.

This is a double-sided fleece throw that is finished with a long fringe. One side is khaki and the other side looks like a pale cream. You could have whichever side up looks best with your decor.

Reviews are a bit mixed, but I suspect that is because someone didn’t read the washing instructions.

It got pills on it after one wash. Not impressed. It looks great for about 5 minutes. Also, don’t wash it with other clothing as it tends to put fibers all over those items. It puts fibers on clothing when you cover up with it. Wish I hadn’t wasted my money. I gave it one star for being soft.

This throw specifically says “handwash” – thus the customer’s problems come from not following the instructions. It is easy to hand wash a blanket like this. Just throw it in the tub, cover it with water, add in a little detergent and let soak. Rinse and lay (or hang) to dry.

Another reviewer commented on the actual product:

I bought this throw blanket in the celery colour. Love the size, weight, and colour.

For $14, you really cannot go wrong. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Two throws will easily meet this minimum.

Chapters Indigo Coupon: 20% Off $50 Purchase Online & In Store

Chapters Indigo Coupon: 20% Off $50 Purchase Online & In Store

Chapters Indigo Canada has just released a lovely little Father’s Day deal for 20% off orders of $50 or more. This offer is valid only on regular priced items.

Click here to shop @ Chapters Indigo Canada now

  • Coupon Code: SUMMER
  • Discount: 20% off $50+
  • Expiry: 21st June 2015

Click here to print off the 20% off $50 coupon for in-store use now

This offer is valid both online and in stores. Online, books are excluded from the offer but you can use the printable coupon on books in store. The coupon also excludes:

sale and clearance items; furniture; electronics & related accessories; LEGO, American Girl, Kate Spade, Jellycat items, HALO items, Rosetta Stone Interactive Learning Software products; gift cards; loyalty memberships or Indigo Love of Reading fundraising products or donations.

Unfortunately, the fine print excludes two of my favourite things: namely Jellycat and LEGO. However, there are still plenty of options for the online shopper. These Whiskey Stones – Set of 9 make an excellent belated Father’s Day gift for the distinguished gentleman. Whereas ice cubes melt in your glass and dilute your drink, whiskey stones keep your drink cold without the runoff. They currently retail for $24.99.

I added in these Coca-Cola Glasses – Set of 2 by Riedel. Riedel is a pretty well known glass maker that manufactures some very nice stemware. I do not actually drink pop, but I like the shape of these glasses and think they would be good for water, milk, juice, and more. I would probably use these for my morning lemon water routine. While I find these glasses a bit pricy at $30, I find you need to pay for quality glassware

I added the above two items to my cart along with the coupon.

Chapters Indigo Coupon: 20% Off $50 Purchase Online & In Store

This is what will show in your cart if all the items in your cart qualify for the discount. Overall, this is a pretty good deal if you are looking to buy some new housewares, baby items, toys for the kids, and more. I do wish that sale items were included but that is the way it is.

I am also disappointed that this coupon code does not work for books online. I would need to either a) print out the coupon or b) show the printable coupon on my smartphone screen in store to purchase new books with this offer.

For this and future Chapters coupon codes, visit our forum. Shipping is free on $25+.

Chapters Indigo Coupon: Double Discount (10%) on Books

Posted by on June 15, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Coupon: Double Discount (10%) on Books

My favourite promo is back from Chapters! Receive double the discount on all books at Chapters Indigo now. Plum members usually receive an additional 5% off books but this coupon code will increase that discount to 10% off your books.

Click here to shop books @ Chapters Indigo Canada now

  • Coupon Code: ESCAPE
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 17th June 2015

This offer is exclusive to Plum Members. Membership is free so there is no reason you shouldn’t already be a member.

Father’s Day is this coming Sunday. If you have not purchased a small token of your love and appreciation yet, then check out Chapters Indigo. They have an entire selection of ‘Best Books for Dad‘ that would make great gifts.

This Finders Keepers: A Novel by Stephen King is a New York Times’ bestseller. The book would usually cost $23.87 for Plum members, but comes down to $22.68. I do not even read thrillers or horror but I know Stephen King well. He is a celebrated writer and used to do guest articles for Entertainment Weekly Magazine.

This Dead Wake: The Last Crossing Of The Lusitania only costs $20 for Plum members, which is already 38% off the list price. The price after discount comes to just $18.94.

Some books are substantially discounted. Armada: A Novel by Ernest Cline is on sale from $30 down to $15. Plum members can purchase this book for just $13.96 after coupon. One reviewer said:

Fans won’t be let down, at least I sure wasn’t as someone being introduced to Ernest Cline. It’s a simple but exhilarating story of video games and an alien invasion (really, what more can you ask for?!). Some twists and turns along the way made the narrative move along in an otherwise linear story with a discernible climax and ending neatly tied up in a bow, but not in the way you’d predict.

This works on all books that I can find: including the books that are substantially discounted like Ripley’s Aquarium Reality Shock Annual Bundle that was $35 and is now $10. After coupon code, pay just $9.48 for this collection. This bundle includes Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Reality Shock! (256 pages), a copy of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada commemorative guidebook, and a coupon for BOGO free tickets to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.

Books are quite personal, thus I always have trouble picking out books for others. I encourage my friends to keep wish lists so I can simply raid their wish list and pick out a title to purchase. That way it is still a surprise but I know I am getting it right.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Buy 3 Get 1 Free (in store)

Posted by on June 12, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Buy 3 Get 1 Free (in store)

I do not often post about in store deals, but a deal like this is worth mentioning. In store at Chapters, purchase three regular-priced items and receive your fourth free.

There are few restrictions to this deal, which is great for buyers. The exclusions are: gift cards, electronics and related accessories, Indigo Love of Reading foundation fundraising products and donations, Lego, American Girl, Kate Spade, Rosetta Stone products, and loyalty memberships.

The offer includes paper, baby, home, books, and more products. I think the most exciting part of this deal is on books. While you receive an extra discount on hardcover books online, the softcover books do not have that extra bonus. Thus, you are better to purchases them in store where you can buy three and receive your fourth softcover for free.

This offer is mix and match type of offer. It does not matter what type of items you purchase together. However, your free item must be of equal or lesser value than the lowest priced qualifying item you purchase. I would pick up a plushie for my Jellycat collection and a couple graphic novels for my collection. I recently acquired Rat Queens Volume 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles Of N’rygoth and Saga Volume 4. If you need a great comic recommendation, I suggest those. You could even pick up three of the Saga volumes and receive the fourth (latest) volume for free.

I think this deal would be great for children’s books and toys. If you have more than one child, the cost of toys to play with and books to read can really add up. Pick up some new gifts for your brood with your fourth item free.

All items purchased must be regular-priced. Sale items do not qualify for this offer.

I am within a 10-minute drive of my local Chapters store. While I love shopping on line for deals, it really isn’t the best for books. At least in store you can open the book up and read a few pages. This way, you get a feel for the author’s writing style. If you do not make it through as couple pages, then maybe you do not actually want to buy that book. Browsing the stacks can also introduce you to new authors.

Chapters Indigo: Heather Tote Was $55 | Now $19 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on June 11, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Chapters Indigo: Heather Tote Was $55 | Now $19 (FS @ $25)

Chapters Indigo Canada has discounted the heather Tote (black) from $55 down to $19.50. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

There is something a bit odd with this deal: it occurs in two separate places under two different links. It is the same bag and has the same description (and discount) but there are different reviews and different stock totals in store. The first link is above, and the second link is here. In case one goes out of stock, you probably will be able to buy it through the second link.

This tote is an oversized polyurethane bag that can be stuffed to the brim! Take it to the market and stock this tote full of fresh parsley, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and more. I went to my local market yesterday and did not bring a big enough bag!

You can also use this bag for local trips to the beach. The bag will easily fit a couple swim suits, goggles, towels, and sunscreen. I like oversized totes like this because they are versatile. They adapt to your living style. Some people leave totes in their trunks as a way to sort the trunk. Store tennis balls, rackets, footballs, and golf balls in this tote. One reviewer said:

I purchased this in the early fall and 6 months later its still perfect. I love that its easy to wash (with all that winter calcium!) I use it as a work carry on. It often stays in my car’s trunk and despite the temperature changes, its not cracked or damaged.

The tote measures a generous 15.6″ x 12″ x 6″. It has a handle for carrying and an inner zipper pouch for essentials you do not want lost. Besides that, it is just one large compartment that will fit all your necessities.

Other Heather bag colours are on sale as well but the sale price is not as steep. The black is by far the cheapest, and under $20 is a good price for a tote of this size.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Alternatively, you may be able to pick up your order on store at no extra charge.

Save 70%! Sennheiser MM 100 Bluetooth Headphones Were $249 | Now $75 & Free Shipping @ Chapters Indigo

Posted by on June 9, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Save 70%! Sennheiser MM 100 Bluetooth Headphones Were $249 | Now $75 & Free Shipping @ Chapters Indigo

This is a fantastic deal today for all of you who like high-quality headphones that make your music sound amazing. The Sennheiser MM 100 Bluetooth Headphones were $249, but right now you can grab them for only $74.70. This is quite a score, saving you 70% off the price!

I have never been fussy about my music, but this deal today has me changing my mind. I listen to music everywhere. If there is a set of speakers near me, chances are good I am streaming some sort of music. I am usually happiest when some sort of lesser-known happy pop rock or acoustic cover is playing from my speakers.

If you like your music clear and crisp, you should check out these Sennheiser headphones. Sennheiser is a top brand of headphones and the clarity will surely live up to the brand. Even better, these headphones operate on an integrated Bluetooth that allows you to skip the wire. Most of Sennheiser’s headphones are wired, but I prefer not being tangled up in cords. This headset also has an integrated microphone so you can take calls on the headset seamlessly. This is perfect for working at your desk, out around town, or when you are out for a run. Avigayil blogged about these headphones when they were on sale for Cyber Monday, but we have not seen the price drop down since then.

The only other place I found these headphones for sale was at NCIX. They are currently selling at full price for $249. Most of Sennheiser’s headphones are wired, but over at Best Buy Canada I found one pair of Sennheiser headphones that are wireless with a 100m range for $140.24. I also found a Bluetooth pair, but the only available pair is $650.24! Most of the Sennheiser headphones start at around $200 and the price only goes upward from there.

There are no reviews at Chapters Indigo on these headphones, but plenty of people are talking about them at NCIX. Most people seem to be rating these about four out of five stars. Here is one review:

These headphones have been around my neck and ears for the last 3 month and I am very happy with them. Listening to music I get 7 hours or so playing non-stop. Phone quality for the most part has been. They have been very durable. They also go louder then I care to listen to while preserving audio quality.

There is still time that you could pick these headphones up in time for a Father’s Day gift. Treat dad or grab a pair for yourself. I am so tempted by this deal. I may treat myself to a new pair of headphones.

Chapters Indigo: Mental Beats Power Bank 2600 mAh Was $30 | Now $10

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Chapters Indigo: Mental Beats Power Bank 2600 mAh Was $30 | Now $10

Chapters indigo Canada has a killer deal on the Mental Beats Power Bank 2600 mAh. Originally $29.95, these handy little external batteries are on sale for just $9.95 each. This is the last day of Chapters Canada’s free shipping with no minimum promotion so buy today! (Free shipping expired now)

While I would never pay the original price for this device, I do think it is worth $10. The size is small enough you can drop it in your pocket (with a bit of a bulge) or in your purse. I have an external battery of the same size and it is a wonderful companion for my cell phone. Rather than carting the large battery around, I can keep it in my purse for life’s little emergencies.

At 2600 mAh, this battery will not give a full charge to most cell phones. However, it will give you plenty of juice to make it through another few hours.

These handy little batteries come in four colour choices:

  • black
  • blue
  • purple
  • white

I think this may be the first time I have seen an external battery in purple thus that would be my choice. Each power bank comes with a built in LED indicator to let you know when the power bank is fully charged.

I noted that I kept having errors pop up on the web page when I went between the colours. Just ignore the errors, as I was successfully able to add the power banks to my cart and get into checkout with them. They are currently listed as in stock for all colours.

I give battery chargers to my friends; it is like the number one gift I end up giving people I care for. Seriously, these things can be a lifesaver. In fact, recently I made an emergency stop at my local dealership as the engine light came on in my car. I had only planned a quick trip to the pharmacy, so I did not have an external battery with me nor could I charge off my car as it was being looked at. My phone went low battery while waiting for the shuttle (over an hour) and I was kicking myself the entire time for not having a battery charger in my purse. Lesson learned.

As free shipping expires end of day today, it is best to purchase one of these devices today so you will score free shipping as well.

Save 75%! Crochet Neck Warmer Was $60 | Now $15 & Free Shipping Today Only @ Chapters Indigo (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Save 75%! Crochet Neck Warmer Was $60 | Now $15 & Free Shipping Today Only @ Chapters Indigo (EXPIRED)

Savvy Bargainmoosers know that even though the weather is sunshine and summer outside your door, it is the perfect time to stock up on out of season winter sale items. Today you should pick up this beautiful crochet neck warmer at 75% off! This neck warmer was $60 but is now only $15. Chapters Indigo is also offering complexly free shipping with no minimum through the end of the day today!

Neck warmer, infinity scarf, cowl, snood…These are all similar terms that a designer uses to describe a looped cozy knit wrap for your neck. Today you can grab this beautiful crochet neck warmer on sale at a great price for next winter. In Canada, we really have a long season for beautiful and cozy pieces like this. You can choose between three colours, each with a distinct pattern:

  • Cream: black and cream pattern
  • Blue: white, black and blue pattern
  • Hot Pink: pink, tan and grey pattern

This neck warmer can be worn a few different ways. You can wrap it around your neck for extra warmth, or on cold days, you could pull it up over your head for an insulating layer. This will have a chunky look that is beautiful. I want to cozy up with a cup of tea with this neck warmer.

I am sure this is crocheted. I am no expert at yarn crafts, but I have crocheted a few other gifts including a stuffed animal, several hats and a scarf for my husband. This item is made of acrylic. Looking at how large it is on the model, I do not think you could make an item this large by hand for yourself for this price if you went to the store and purchased yarn of equal quality. There are no current reviews, but using what I know about crochet, the yarn looks to be a decent quality when you zoom in closely. If it is not as soft as you like when it first arrives, wash it on the gentlest cycle on your washer in cold water and add softener. Air-dry this flat and it should be soft and comfortable all winter.

I tried to compare prices at other stores for a similar snood, but this item is out of season and they are harder to find. I found the Brigitte Chunky Cable Snood in grey over at Roots.ca that was $45 but is on sale for $19.98. Over there you would also have to pay a shipping charge of $4.50 or your order would have to total $50 to receive free shipping. This snood at Roots is also only is available in grey, whereas at Chapters Indigo you can have your choice of colours.  I also found a marled cowl scarf in navy for $44.95 that looks similar in construction at Gap Canada. You would also need a small filler item to qualify for free shipping at $50.

Pick up this neck warmer at Chapters Indigo while the price is perfect and the shipping is free. Next winter you will then have a new gift waiting for yourself, I love presents! These would also make beautiful gifts. I may pick up a few and stash them away in my gift closet. I bet two of these in different colours would be perfect for my kid’s preschool teachers.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Free Shipping, No Minimum

While Chapters Indigo already has a low threshold for free shipping ($25), getting it even lower down to free shipping is so much better! Until the end of the day Thursday, you can buy whatever your little heart desires at Chapters Indigo and you won’t have to pay any shipping costs or worry about getting your total up to a higher amount.

Chapters Indigo also has some hot deals on for you to pair with the free shipping happening. If you looking for a “hot” Father’s Day gift, how about a book about BBQing. I don’t know a man alive who isn’t the master of his grill, although some are more masterful than others. Men seem to be drawn to fire, whether that is over a firepit or a grill. Get him one of the classic recipe books on sale for only $15 right now. Gastro grilling sounds like a fabulous way to get your meat fix and you know dad will love it. Regularly $29.

If Dad likes art and he likes bikes, this Scootin’ 11×11 art print is seriously unique and only available through Chapters Indigo. Regularly $44, now only $11. What I love about giving other people art is that they’ll remember it. Other gifts get used up and forgotten, but when you have it hanging on your wall, you really can’t forget, and that makes it special.

While we have mentioned the snow toys on sale, have you ever realized that snow toys can also be used in sand? I packed away all of our sand toys into our trailer and recently on a very hot day my kids wanted to go to the beach. I thought, hey why not, and took their sno stompers to the beach and they were a hit! Regularly $24.95, now $12.50. Also, when I was in Cuba, there was this guy who would build elaborate sand castles and sand animals each morning. He used very few tools but one that he had was a sno brick maker. If you can do it with snow, you can definitely do it with sand. This was regularly $6.95, now $3.50 and you can order just this and not worry about shipping.

Get a Free Grab & Go Travel Game With Any $20 Hasbro Game @ Chapters Indigo Canada

I am always looking for a way to spend a little more family time without electronics. Right now Chapters Indigo Canada has a deal on their Hasbro games. You can snag a free Grab & Go Travel Game with any Hasbro game you purchase that is valued at $19.95 or more.

Grab & Go games are great for many occasions. Whether you are planning on camping, doing a few road trips, or heading to family picnics this summer, Grab and Go games by Hasbro are an excellent source of entertainment to bring along with you. These games were normally $7.95, so that is quite the freebie. The Hasbro Grab and Go games include your family favourites such as:

  • Battleship Grab and Go
  • Connect 4 Grab and Go
  • Trouble Grab and Go
  • Clue Grab and Go

All four of the Hasbro Grab and Go games are still in stock, so have your pick. You will get your free Grab & Go Travel Game with the purchase of any Hasbro game that exceeds $19.95, but most of the games are in that general price range. Hasbro really does have games for all ages. I remember many of these games from when I was a kid. Hungry Hungry Hippos has been a family favourite forever. This game is just $22.95 and will provide your family with hours of humour and fun. Some of the other popular games for kids include Sorry, Monopoly Junior, Guess Who and more.

Chapters Indigo Canada even has a variety of Despicable Me themed games, among other popular themes (Frozen, My Little Pony). The Despicable Me – Trouble for $19.95 is a game that I could easily add to my collection. Those little minions are absolutely adorable and I can’t wait for my family to laugh at this game. The other Despicable Me themed Hasbro games include:

  • Despicable Me – The Game of Life for $24.95
  • Despicable Me – Monopoly for $24.95
  • Despicable Me – Operation for $24.95

Chapters.Indigo.ca offers free shipping on orders over $25, so hopefully your cart total can reach that. Otherwise the shipping fee is based on the weight, size and distance for your purchase.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95) (EXPIRED)

Looking for a new and better way to watch TV? Then grab yourself the Roku 3 as right now, you can get it for just $87.96 when you use Visa Checkout at Chapters Indigo. It’s usually priced at $109.95, so it’s a 20% discount. Shipping will also be free after Chapters Indigo ships orders over $25 for free.

It’s not the first time that we blog about the Roku but if it’s the first time that you hear about it, then all you need to know is that it’s basically a device that will allow you to stream TV shows and movies.

With it, you can completely get rid of your cable TV and subscribe instead to numerous channels that the Roku offers. In fact, there are more than 1400 to choose from but just keep in mind that some of these are paid subscriptions. For all of you hockey fans, you will be happy to know that there is even an NHL Gamecenter channel with live games, replays, and much more to keep you entertained throughout the year.

There are no reviews for the Roku 3 on Chapters Indigo, but PC Mag gave it a 4/5 stars rating with the following pros, cons and bottom line:

Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95) (EXPIRED)

As you can see from the pros, the Roku 3 includes a remote with a headphone jack for private listening and this is an exclusive feature to this generation of the Roku. The previous versions don’t include this and also don’t include the following features, which the Roku 3 now has: voice search, a remote that you can use to point anywhere and motion control for games. The other features are nearly identical to the Roku 2 but it’s the Roku 1 that appears to be the most outdated, so if I were you, I would definitely invest in the most recent one! Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95) (EXPIRED) Check out Roku.com, for a quick reference as to all of the features between the available versions of the Roku.

What’s cool about the Roku though is that you can watch nearly all of the latest movies and TV shows really easily. There are of course plenty more, but to give you an idea, you could watch movies like Step Brothers, Hitch, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men Days of Future Part, Taken 2 or even Hangover II! Amongst others, you can watch TV shows like Family Guy, Hell on Wheels, The Shield, How I Met Your Mother etc.

The cheapest I  have found the Roku 3 anywhere else is actually at Staples, where it’s currently on sale for $99.97 and it’s sold out! So Chapters Indigo’s deal is definitely the best but just make sure to pay using Visa Checkout to benefit from the 20% discount.
