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

Posted by on March 8, 2014 at 10:00 AM

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

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.

Chapters Indigo Canada: $10 Off Select Aden & Anais Merchandise

Chapters Indigo Canada: $10 Off Select Aden & Anais Merchandise

Chapters Indigo has a pretty sweet deal right now for anyone shopping for a baby: $10 off select Aden & Anais products.

With a baby girl very close to making her worldly debut, I have been frantically shopping in the past few weeks for all things baby related and Aden & Anais products are ones that I have stumbled many times on and their price drop at Chapters has actually motivated me to get a couple of bibs and blankets already! This is all because their products are used with cotton muslin, which is a breathable, softer and more comfortable kind of fabric.

Here are the Aden & Anais products that you can save on:

To give you an idea, I quickly price compared the cotton muslin bib and found the same numbered pack at for $24.50 and at Snuggle Bugz for $26.99.

Interestingly, Chapters Indigo’s sale also includes the Aden & Anais serenity star. Now down to $89.50 (reg. $99.50), it’s basically an electronic device that monitors feeding schedules and a room’s temperature, all the while acting as a clock, nightlight and sound machine as well.

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

What are your thoughts on Aden & Anais products? Do you plan on getting any?

Chapters Indigo Canada: 35% Off Dr. Seuss Books

Chapters Indigo Canada: 35% Off Dr. Seuss Books

I believe Dr. Seuss has a birthday around now, and this could be why there is this great sale with up to 35% off Dr. Seuss books at Chapters Indigo.

My kids, along with many, many other kids in the world, love Dr. Seuss. I think The Lorax is my most favourite story, but there are quite a few other ones that really touch me. When my middle son was about one, he didn’t have a teddy bear, or a binky or a blue blanket. Instead he had four Dr. Seuss board books that he would sleep with and carry around. He loved those books and wouldn’t sleep without them and in fact, he slept on top of them every night for at least a year. He’s moved on from that stage, but he still loves to read the stories, and they are such great books for him to read as an early reader. With lots of rhyming and short words, early readers have an easier time reading the stories, plus they are fun.

Some of our favourites include:

As always, shipping is free on a $25 or more purchase.

Chapters Indigo Canada: March Brickbreak with 20% Off Select LEGO

Posted by on March 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Chapters Indigo Canada: March Brickbreak with 20% Off Select LEGO

For the month of March, Chapters Indigo is offering 20% off select LEGO sets.

With the LEGO movie that was just released, LEGO mania is real. I think I’ve stepped on enough LEGO in my lifetime to not care, but my kids and husband are still in love with the stuff. We recently went to LEGOland, which was quite the experience and it was cool to see the City of Toronto built with LEGO. With hysteria, comes sales. I rarely see LEGO on sale for more than 20% off, unless it is a super clearance sale, so 20% is what you’ll get.

There are a few categories that are on sale for this March Brickbreak:

  • LEGO movie
  • Super Heroes
  • Star Wars
  • City
  • Chima
  • Duplo

The LEGO movie stuff is practically brand new, so I’m sure the kids would love to get some of those sets. My kids have been saving their allowance, and it would be worth a trip to Chapters Indigo over the break to take part in the free activities and let them choose a new LEGO set. It also teaches them to only buy stuff on sale (I rarely pay full price!).

Or, I could order online now and have this here for them to put together over the break. Decisions, decisions. Shipping is free on a $25 spend, so it could be worthwhile to just get everything online, since it won’t cost me any extra.

(Expiry: 16th March 2014 for LEGO movie and Superheroes/ 31st March 2014 for the rest)

Chapters Indigo Canada: Free Spring Break Activities In-Store

Chapters Indigo Canada: Free Spring Break Activities In Store

As we tweeted on Twitter yesterday, Chapters Indigo has finally announced the free March Break activities they are going to have in store.

I recently blogged about all the fun discounted and free activities to do on March Break in Ontario. I was waiting and waiting for Chapters to release their free activities, since they are usually good ones, and they are free!

There are so many fun things to do, I may have to pop in each day to try something new with the kids:

Monday – Let’s read with Dr. Seuss – story time, activities and more focusing on All The Places You’ll Go with Hop on Pop and Cat in the Hat. You know what I’m saying.

Tuesday – Create with Rainbow Loom – I love this one as I’m just not that great at this Rainbow Loom thing, so maybe someone else can show my kids how to do it without chucking the thing across the room.

Wednesday – Let’s build with LEGO – a special minifigure swap and a make and take.

Thursday – Let’s go on an adventure – pirates and mermaids, oh my.

Friday – Let’s go on the road with Klutz – travel friendly activities

Check the link for the dates, but if your kids are going on March Break, I’m sure you know when!

Chapters Indigo Canada: Up to 83% Off Electronics

Even though we are still having some crazy cold weather across Canada, many stores are already in full force with their winter clearance sales.  Head over to Chapters Indigo and you will be able to save up to 83% on select electronics.

Not only will you find electronics on sale, but you will find accessories as well. Everything will be listed at least 25% off the regular price but some items will be discounted up to 83% off which is pretty amazing.

Here is a look at some of the great deals:

You will notice that the video memo pad and the POP handset will have a fairly big variety of colours to choose from.  I usually like to stick with black for my electronics and accessories but I know many people that love to be a bit more individualized and go for colours like a vibrant blue or a hot pink.

Additionally, if you are ordering on the weekends at a certain time, you may be able to use this Chapters Indigo coupon to save you even more money.

As for the cost of shipping, you will get free shipping for orders of $25 or more.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Pre Order Oh She Glows & Get A Free Recipe Bundle

Pre-order your copy of The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Vegan Recipes To Glow From the Inside Out and you’ll get a bonus recipe e-bundle with ten new recipes for you to try.

I’ve really been looking forward to the release of this cookbook. Angela Liddon is one of the most popular vegan food bloggers on the web, and she has now released a cookbook. Although I’m not vegan, I am leading the change to eating healthier, including more plant-based proteins. This cookbook is full of delicious and healthy recipes from breakfast to dessert and everything in between.

It looks like the release is on March 4th, so in the meantime you’ll can register and receive the e-bundle of ten additional recipes. These recipes are one that didn’t quite fit in the cookbook, but were so good, the author didn’t want to forgo them. On top of the recipes, you’ll also get 2-day sample meal plan.

Once you’ve pre-ordered the book, register your book at Oh She Glows to get your email with your downloadable recipe content. You don’t necessarily have to buy the book from Chapters, but I price compared at Amazon and they both are selling the pre-order of the book for $18.18.

You’ll have to register your book by March 4th (although the blog says the 5th) in order to get the bonus.

I’m excited to try the winter detox green smoothie and the smoky “coconut” bacon. Sign me up!

Chapters Canada: Up To 75% Off Snow Play

Get up to 75% off snow play, which you can probably still use for at least another month! Or save it for next year if you believe different.

A lot of the really great items are already out of stock and I see why – they were really amazing deals. My kids actually have quite a few of these items that I’m sure Nana bought at full price. The Zipfys are well-loved little toboggans in our house, so if these do come back in stock, take advantage. Besides that, there are a number of other items that make great toys for getting kids out in the snow.

Check out:

  • Sno Stompers - my kids got these for Christmas and love them. Who wouldn’t love making monster tracks all over the neighbourhood? – was $24.95, now $6.24
  • Arctic Force Snowball Blaster – because throwing snowballs is so last year, now you need to launch them! – was $39.95, now $9.99
  • Arctic Force Snow Crossbow – you have to fight fire with fire, so don’t get blasted without backup – was $44.95, now $11.24

Shipping is free once you spend over $25.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 20% Off Disney Infinity Figures

Posted by on February 19, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 20% Off Disney Infinity Figures

You may have gotten your kids the Disney Infinity game for Christmas and your kid is getting bored of the figures they have. You probably didn’t buy out every single figure like I did, not realizing they would go on sale after Christmas, of course. They are 20% at Chapters Indigo right now.

The thing that gets me about this game is that Disney figures I would think, are for the younger set. My older boys are over Cars and Toy Story, but my younger one loves both of those. But, Infinity is made for kids 10+ because of cartoon violence. Good ol’ cartoon violence ruins it for the rest of us. Also, the game is quite a hard one to master, so even if you didn’t care if your little one sees Woody die by the hands of Buzz, little ones will have trouble playing the game.

If none of these matter for you and just want some figures, then you’ve come to the right place. Some of my kid’s favourite figures include:

  • Syndrome - which I may just replace anyway since my dog got a hold of Syndrome and chewed half of his head off (at least she got a bad guy) – was $12.95, now $10.36
  • Lone Ranger set – was $39.95, now $31.96
  • Mike - was $12.95, now $10.36

It looks like stock is becoming limited on the more popular ones so I wouldn’t wait until the end of the week to get these.

Shipping is free on a $25+ spend.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 25% Off Prints & Gallery Frames

Chapters Indigo has some unique home decor items and their prints and gallery frames are one example. Right now, you’ll get 25% off all of these, which make great gift ideas, even for yourself.

They have some elegant and unique prints ready for framing and I’m loving quite a few of them here. I also need some frames for family pictures for a gallery wall I want to create.

I am so in love with chalkboard style artwork and this All You Need Is Love print is so perfect for my home, I think I’m going to order it. This saying is our family mantra, so everything about this print is absolutely perfect. It is 11×14, so nice and large and was $29.00, now $21.75.

These silver foil on wood with linen frames are exclusive to Indigo and are gorgeous. I love how the mat takes up a major portion of the frame so your photo will be showcased perfectly. Was $54.50, now $40.88.

This black background Work It print is perfect for my office for a little whimsy, and for an even more unique look, I can add the other Work It print with the white background. Was $15, now $11.25.

Shipping is free when you spend $25.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Canada Reads Shortlisted Books

Get 50% off the Canada Reads shortlist of books at Chapters Indigo this week. I price compared the prices with Amazon, which usually has books the cheapest and Chapters Indigo wins this round with the cheapest selection in this category.

The Canada Reads list is a list of books that have been voted to be ones that could change our nation or even the world. Canadians voted on their top 40 books and panelists voted down to the top 10. It will be interesting to see which book takes the top spot. I am an avid reader and I love reading books that have been known to be life-changing, never mind country-changing.

The list includes:

The Orenda – my words can’t describe accurately enough about this book so I’ll quote – “The Orenda traces a story of blood and hope, suspicion and trust, hatred and love. A saga nearly four hundred years old, it is at its roots timeless and eternal.” – was $22, now $10.45

The Year of the Flood – I’ve read a bit of this book, but you really need quiet time to understand all of the complexities of this novel. Revered Canadian author Margaret Atwood writes about a dystopian world that will frighten the pants off you. Was $22, now $10.45

Cockroach – a man who imagines himself as a cockroach, invisible to the world around him and invading the lives of the privileged around him – was $18.95, now $9

Half Blood Blues – the guilty conscience of a musician and the sacrifices made in the name of art – was $19.99, now $9.49

Annabel – a baby born as both boy and girl and raised as a boy with a secret – was $14.95, now $7.10

Shipping is free on orders over $25 so pick up a couple of titles. It’s like getting a buy one, get one free offer.
