NCIX Canada: Boxing Day Flyer Out Now & Prices Live On 24th Dec 2014

NCIX, the popular Canadian electronics and computer retailer, has just released their Boxing Day flyer and we’ve got a copy up on our Boxing Day deals forums!

The actual time and date of the start of the NCIX Boxing Day sale is the 24th December 2014, at 4.30PM PST – mark it in your calendars or set a reminder on your phone. There are only 5 pages in the flyer so I am sure that there will be more deals available on the day, they just cannot squeeze them all in to the flyer. The flyer shows us a synopsis of the best Boxing Day bargains.

If there was something in particular you were looking for, perhaps a new computer or a big-screen TV, it’s an absolutely great idea to get researching now. Take this Boxing Day flyer from NCIX, see if there’s anything that you like, and price compare elsewhere. Then you will be fore-armed with knowledge as to the best deals and where to spend your hard-earned cash.

We cannot write about every single item in this blog post, but here are a few of the highlights.

LG 47” 1080p 120Hz smart LED TV was $698 will be $548 – I’m not sure which exact model it will be as the flyer doesn’t say, but I’ve linked to the 2 LG TVs that fit into that category. Both are $698 so $549 will be a great price. If it’s the 47LB5830, the lowest price elsewhere for it is $687 anyway. And the lowest price for the 47LB6100 is $699. This is one of the flyer headliners so there may not be many in stock. If you are interested, I’d plan to be online the instant the NCIX sale commences.

Logitech Harmony Ultimate One Universal Remote Control was $248 will be $148 – this remote control is $250+ everywhere else, so it’s a super price. They may not have many of this one either – get in early to secure your bargains.

Sennheiser HD558 Headphones were $279.99 will be $139.99 – these bad boys aren’t sold at many stores and the cheapest I have seen this model in the past was $159.99. You can pick them up for $180 @ Amazon just now, but the NCIX price of $140 in their Boxing sales is much better. I want Sennheisers!

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse was $79.99… and the price is too low to show on the flyer! Just now, it’s priced at $59.99 on site, so I’d expect it to be at least lower than that. We’ll check back on the day in question to see the price on that.

There are tons more items in the NCIX Boxing sales, click through and check it out.

As for shipping from NCIX, it depends on what you are buying. Some items have free shipping, some don’t, but you can see this on the individual product pages once the Boxing Day sales starts. Also, there is supposed to be free shipping on orders over $50.

Here’s the full flyer:

Amazon Canada: Crucial M500 240GB SATA SSD Was $210 Now $90

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

Amazon Canada: Crucial M500 240GB SATA SSD Was $210 Now $90

Here’s a hot little item for all those looking to either build or upgrade their computer: the Crucial M500 240GB SATA SSD is currently on sale for just $89.99 at Amazon but hurry, because it’s sure to go back up in price very quickly. It was originally priced at $208.99, which means you are looking at $119 in savings (57% off).

The Crucial M500 240GB internal solid state drive is designed to be incredibly faster than a regular hard drive as it has a 500 mb/s sequential read, 50 mb/s sequential write and 4KB random read. According to its description, it also features “top-level hardware encryption technology”.

This nifty little SSD also has a ton of extremely happy reviews. Well, by a ton, I mean over 75 but 63 of these have rated it 5/5 stars! Only one reviewer rated it one star and that’s only because of a price discepancy at the time of their purchasing, which had nothing to do with the product itself. Here’s what one happy reviewer had to say about it:

I bought and installed this drive into an Early 2009 iMac running OSX 10.10. It completely changed how the computer works and it is like a brand new machine! I love it! The swap (of existing 1TB 7200rpm drive) required some tools and a 3.5″ drive carrier from OWC, then I followed instructions from ifixit to do the work. Once installed, I had to boot on a special CD to upgrade to latest M05 firmware, then install the OS and restore from Time Machine. All worked perfectly and the performance on a SATAII interface is ideal. This is a winner!

Amazon’s price is also the lowest all around. NCIX is currently selling this same Crucial SSD for as much as $131.99. Newegg has it for $94.99 but with shipping, it comes up to $100.98 in total. This is also the best deal compared to the other available storage size, though these are on sale as well in case you need ones with either lower or higher storage sizes:

  • 120GB: reg. $120.99/ now $85.98 (29% off)
  • 480GB: reg. $406.99/ now $213.32 (48% off)
  • 960GB: reg. $659.99/ now $485.98 (26% off)

Since Amazon automatically ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get free shipping on this little item as well. In case you have never ordered from Amazon before, shipping is fast as well.

5TB Seagate Expansion 3.0 External Hard Drive $100 Off @ Newegg Canada – Now Just $140 + Free Shipping!!

Posted by on November 29, 2014 at 7:30 PM

5TB Seagate Expansion 3.0 External Hard Drive $100 Off @ Newegg Canada   Now Just $140 + Free Shipping!!

Black Friday may have come and gone quicker than ever this year but if you’re still looking for great deal, then I found an awesome one on an external hard drive. Right now, you can get the Seagate Expansion 3.0 external hard drive for just $139.99 at Newegg Canada. It was originally priced at $249.99, which puts it at $100 off (44% off). If you add a $10 or more filler item and use Visa Checkout, then you can also use the Newegg promo code: VCNOV25 to save an additional $25 off your order!

External hard drives are like tubs of ice cream: when you need them the most, they’re not there! With this one, however, you won’t ever have to worry about running out of space because you can certainly transfer a lot of content with the 5 terabytes of storage. By the way, 5 terabytes (TB) amounts to 5,000 gigabytes. For the average consumer, trust me when I say it’s a lot. To give you an idea, a typical HD movie will usually take up about 2-3 GB, if not less but even if you were to transfer one of those 20+ gigabytes movies floating around the interwebs onto this Seagate external hard drive, you would still be more than okay for space.

Surprisingly, shipping is free. It’s surprising because nearly everything at Newegg comes with a shipping and it’s this fee that sometimes makes it more worth to buy a specific item elsewhere, just to have it shipped for free there. After plugging in my postal code, the checkout section confirmed that my order qualified for free shipping, so I can only hope that it works for you Moosers as well!

You can also choose to protect your external hard drive. Right now, you can pay just $20 for a 3-year protection plan, which would have otherwise cost that much for a 2-year plan.

To give you an idea of the awesomness of Newegg’s price for this external hard drive, I had a look around and found this same one for $206.25 at Amazon! Tiger Direct has it on sale for $204.99.

Dell Financial: Up to 50% Off Coupon, $35 Monitors, & More Black Friday Deals (HOT!)

Posted by on November 27, 2014 at 2:19 PM

Dell Financial: Up to 50% Off Coupon, $35 Monitors, & More Black Friday Deals (HOT!)

The Dell Financial Refurbished store has renamed Black Friday ‘Red Friday’ and released a coupon code for up to 50% off everything in store including their sale items. This sale is only on for two days!

Click here to shop @ Dell Refurbished Canada now

  • Coupon Code: REDF14
  • Discount: Up to 50% off
  • Expiry: 28th November 2014

Here is how the coupon works. You will save 50% on Dell Optiplex 960 and 990 desktops and all Dell 20″ monitors. All other Dell Optiplex desktops and Dell monitors will be 40% off. Everything else will be an extra 30% off with coupon. With the above coupon, you will also receive free shipping on orders of $199 or more. Honestly, hit that minimum because shipping is steep if you do not.

Seriously, this deal is hot! Check out the Dell E2011H 20″ monitor that was $110 and is now $82. Because this is a 20″ monitor, you get an extra 50% off bringing the monitor down to just $41! What are you waiting for? Go! Buy!

For a slightly smaller monitor for those on a lower budget, the Dell E Series E190S 19-inch Flat Panel Monitor was $79 and can be found as low as $59 (some are $63). Using the $59 one as my model while there are still some in stock, the coupon code above brings this Dell monitor down to just $35.40. I really cannot see these staying in stock for very long.

If you are looking for a budget computer, look no further than the OptiPlex 960 Core 2 Duo 3.00 (E8400). Currently on sale from $379 down to $322, you will receive an extra 50% off this unit, as it is one of the two models that qualify for this deal. That brings the price down to just $161. This basic desktop has 320GB hard drive, 8GB of RAM, and Windows 7 Pro. There are several of these units available, just search the website if this one is sold out.

This sale has me really excited because you can get an entire desktop computer – laptop and monitor – for under $200. If you were looking for a laptop, I would recommend a few Latitude models. These four Latitude E5420 Core i5 2.50 (i5-2520M) all have a fast processor and 750GB hard drives. They are on sale for $474 right now but come down to $331.80 after coupon.

Take advantage of this Dell Financial Services coupon code for two days only!

The Source Canada: 60% Off Open Box Acer V225WL 22″ LED Monitor – Now $60 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 11, 2014 at 1:00 PM

The Source Canada: 60% Off Open Box Acer V225WL 22 LED Monitor   Now $60 (EXPIRED)

With up to 60% off in discounts to be had, The Source has just launched their Computer Clear-Out sale and among these, I found a great deal on the Acer V225WL 22″ LED monitor (open box). It’s now on sale for just $59.99 and once the sale is over, will be going back to its original price of $144.96 — that’s a 60% discount ($85 off)!

With a 22″ screen, the Acer V225WL LED monitor features a 1680 x 1050 resolution, a 5ms response time and is Energy Star qualified. It also has VGA and DVI ports. Looking around other stores, I found this same monitor for much more expensive everywhere else:

Out of all of these, I only found 2 reviews. The first was posted on Best Buy’s site and features 5/5 stars:

This is my first widescreen monitor. Don’t know why I didn’t get one sooner. Opens up a whole new world!! The picture looks fantastic! Comes with both VGA a.nd DVI cables. The one feature I wish it had would be the ability to turn the power light off while you’re using it. Other than that, it gets a 5 from me!

And the other was posted on Future Shop’s site and is a 2/5 star review but that’s only because the customer didn’t realize that this computer monitor doesn’t include built-in speakers. No other mention was made as to the performance of the monitor, which leads me to assume that it worked just fine. Personally, I don’t have speakers on my own monitor and it’s not a feature that I have particularly ever cared for because I much prefer having the speakers apart as these are typically better and are easily replaceable.

The best part about The Source’s deal is that you could get 2-3 of these monitors for dual or triple viewing like on the picture above. I, myself, use two screens and although it takes some getting used to at first, it makes working on the computer much easier!

Granted, it’s an open box but that’s really nothing to be afraid of, especially at that price. Open box items are tested to make sure that they are fully operational, which means that in most cases, you’re more than likely getting a perfect product for a fraction of the cost just because of the box. And even if you are to encounter problems, then the products, or in this case, the computer monitor, can be returned to The Source within 30 days.

As usual, there is a $4.99 flat shipping rate but you can choose to have it shipped to your local The Source store for free instead as well.

Microsoft Canada: Asus Signature Edition Laptop $179 (Save $20) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 10, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Microsoft Canada: Asus Signature Edition Laptop $179 (Save $20) (EXPIRED)

Microsoft Canada has a very interesting deal on the Asus X205TA-UH01-BK Signature Edition Laptop. Originally $199, the laptop is now 10% off at only $179. This makes a great basic laptop for your daily social networking and email needs. You will also receive free shipping on your laptop purchase at Microsoft.

My husband and I have been talking about what to do after the warranty on my currently laptop runs out. I generally resell my laptops and invest that money towards a new one. However, this will be the first time I do not need a laptop for school, so I can consider other models I might not have before. This Asus has a lot of very appealing features, besides a low price tag.

Here are the basic features:

  • 11.6-inch (294.64-millimeter) HD display
  • Intel Atom Z3735F – 1.33 GHz with Intel Burst Technology up to 1.83 GHz
  • 2GB memory/32GB eMMC
  • Up to 12 hours battery life

This is not a typical laptop; it is more like a hybrid between a tablet and a laptop. The ‘hard-drive’ is not your traditional laptop memory but rather features a 32 eMMC memory. eMMC memory is often found in tablets, cameras, and other portable devices. While you may think that you will be rather short on memory, you will also receive two-years free 100GB OneDrive storage with your purchase.

Your laptop comes with the standard Bluetooth and camera. You get two USB 2.0 ports, a Micro HDMI, and a Headphone output/Microphone input combo port on the laptop. All of this is packed into just over two pounds. Did I mention the 11.3″ screen with what looks like a full chicklet keyboard? I cannot verify it is a full keyboard, but it looks very close.

The Asus Signature Edition comes without junkware or 3rd party trialware. Personally, I think this should be standard not ‘signature’ but I will take it. You can find out more about the Microsoft Signature Editions here.

For a $180 price tag, I think this is a fantastic little device from a pretty well-known brand. For anyone just wanting a laptop to surf the internet and social network – this is your unit. Your device does come with Windows 8 so you can play games on your new device as well. The online storage will help for the first two years, but checkout pricing afterward.

NCIX Canada: WD My Book 4TB USB3.0 Hard Drive With Security Local and Cloud Backup | Was $230 Now $150

If you’ve been waiting for the chance to purchase a reliable external hard drive for your computer, then you should look no further than the WD My Book 4TB USB3.0 Hard Drive With Security Local and Cloud Backup. Today at NCIX, you can save $80 on this massive 4TB HDD – normally retailing for $229.99, you can now buy this great external hard drive for $149.99. You’ll also qualify for free shipping, which is always a good thing!

This WD My Book 4TB USB3.0 Hard Drive With Security Local and Cloud Backup has so much space, you will likely not be even to even fill a quarter of it right now! This is a great external hard drive to have for the future, since you’ll be able to store so many files on it, whether it’s documents, songs, videos, or even games. Either way, your files will be in good hands when you use this huge 4TB hard drive.

You can also rely on this WD My Book 4TB USB3.0 Hard Drive With Security Local and Cloud Backup to backup your computer. Unfortunately, computer viruses and other issues can arise, and it always helps to have a backup ready so you can successfully restore your computer back to its previous state.

If you wanted to purchase this WD My Book 4TB USB3.0 Hard Drive With Security Local and Cloud Backup from WalMart, it would cost you $189.99. I’ve included a brief review of this hard drive from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

Excellent hard drive. My previous of the same line lasted for more than four years before developing any issues, which is much better than most consumer-grade drives I’ve used. I’ve recommended this same device to my family as well.

This deal will expire on November 5th. Get this hard drive while it’s still in-stock! Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Dell Canada: McAfee Internet Security 2015 (1 Year) | Was $70 Now $7

Posted by on October 26, 2014 at 10:14 AM

Dell Canada: McAfee Internet Security 2015 (1 Year) | Was $70 Now $7

This deal is spicy, folks! For a limited time, you can download McAfee Internet Security 2015 (1 Year) from Dell’s website for only $6.99! The regular price of this handy computer application is $69.99, so you’re saving $63! That is some huge savings! Plus, since it’s a download, you don’t have to worry about paying for any shipping – you’ll be able to get the program on your computer soon after your purchase!

You just can’t put a price on the safety of your personal information. With McAfee Internet Security 2015, you can help protect your computer against a myriad of potential virtual threats and viruses, while keeping your information safe and secure. The McAfee name is reputable and reliable, and they have been providing their customers with anti-virus solutions for many years. In fact, the very first anti-virus software program that I ever had was McAfee’s, and that was back in the late 90’s!

It can unfortunately be risky to browse the internet and download files when you don’t have an anti-virus or internet security program. I’ve been through several unfortunate instances where I lost all of the files in my computer due to viruses, and I always made sure to back up my important documents and files on an external hard drive in case something like that ever happened again. McAfee Internet Security 2015 is a highly praised program that can help you keep your computer safe, and you just can’t go wrong for $6.99.

If you went to Staples to buy this version of McAfee Internet Security 2015, it would cost you $69.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this program from PCMag below:

Very good ratings from independent testing labs. Top score in our malicious URL blocking test. Accurate spam filtering. Can filter spam from webmail accounts. Many useful bonus features.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, my fellow deal hunters!

Tiger Direct Canada: Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook Google Chrome OS (Refurbished) | Was $232 Now $168

Tiger Direct Canada: Acer C720 2827 Intel Celeron 11.6 Chromebook Google Chrome OS (Refurbished) | Was $232 Now $168

Looking for a nice affordable Chromebook computer? Then you should check out today’s deal at Tiger Direct! It’s for a refurbished Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook, which you can now get for $167.99 (plus $11.45 shipping). The regular price of this Chromebook is $231.77, so this is a pretty decent deal!

This Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook has a multitude of great features, including an Intel Celeron 2955U 1.40GHz processor, 2GB of DDR3L memory, 16GB SSD, integrated Wi-Fi, the Google Chrome Operating System, and an 11.6″ HD Active Matrix TFT Colour LCD Display. You can learn more about the specifications of this Chromebook by clicking here.

In my opinion, this looks like a handy device to bring around with you when you want to get some work done while you’re on-the-run. It apparently has wonderful battery life, too! It may not be a tablet, but then again not everyone likes a tablet – some prefer to use an actual keyboard instead of a touchscreen interface when they’re typing. If that’s the case, then this Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook may be suitable for you.

I’m actually very curious about the Google Chrome Operating System that’s installed on this Chromebook. I plan to check out some Chromebooks during the next week so I can try out this intriguing new OS!

If you were to purchase this Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook from Amazon (US) or WalMart (US), they’re currently on sale for $199 US (plus shipping to Canada). I’ve included a brief review of this Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook from a satisfied Tiger Direct customer:

Excellent deal. Featherweight, great for surfing,email and review of docs. Chrome language is not recognized by Word however. Really great for travel. Battery life longer than expected… 8.5 hrs. Very quick to start. Links to favorites stored on home page. All very convenient.

Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Best Buy Canada: Flash Sale On Macbooks And iMacs One Day Only (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Best Buy Canada: Flash Sale On Macbooks And iMacs One Day Only (EXPIRED)

For one day only (September 24th), Best Buy is having a sale on many of their Macbooks and iMac computers. No, nothing is 75% off of the retail price, but Apple product sales are typically scarce, and it can be a great time to purchase one of these products – especially if you’re starting out your school year and want a newer computer. Some of the Macbooks that you can save on today include this Apple Macbook Pro 13.3″ With Intel Core i5 2.5GHz that you can get for $999.99 (regular price is $1199.99), and this iMac 21.5″ Intel Core i5 Dual-Core 1.4 GHz Computer for $999.99 (regular price is $1099.99). Your order will also qualify for free shipping. To check out the many Macbooks and iMacs that are on sale, just click on the link below.

Whether you’re looking for a top of the line, powerful Macbook (like the Macbook Pro 15.4″ Intel Core i7 2.2GHz With Retina Display, which you can save $200 off of the retail price on since it’s on sale for $1899.99), or if you want one that’s more affordable (like the ones I mentioned at the beginning of this article), this is a noteworthy sale that should please plenty of people.

Macs have exploded in popularity during the past decade, and if you happen to go to a Starbucks location or a shopping mall, the chances are high that you’ll notice someone using a Macbook laptop computer. I personally have an old iMac G4 computer (remember the one that looked like a lamp shade?) My significant other has had a Macbook for the past 4 years, and it’s still working like a charm without any noticeable slowdowns or issues. It’s still the only computer that she currently uses.

Apple products tend to be crafted with quality being in mind, which is why most of them sell for premium prices when compared to PC products. If you were to purchase the Apple Macbook Pro 13.3″ With Intel Core i5 2.5GHz at Staples, it’s currently $1199, while it would cost you $1199.99 at Future Shop today (it’s currently on sale at Best Buy for $999.99). Listed below is a brief review from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

I wish I had bought it many, many years ago. It takes a bit of time to get used to compared to a regular laptop but once you do, it’s fantastic. I would recommend the MacBook Pro to everyone.

Best Buy is also having a one day sale on Apple iPads, which you can check out by clicking here. I hope you enjoy your Wednesday, Bargainmoosers!

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

BUMP: This coupon has been brought back for a short time so I have updated the expiry. They have also RESTOCKED a ton of stuff on their website and have new stuff as well – be sure to check it out because this deal is wicked socks!

Dell Refurbished Canada has a coupon code for 40% off their entire website. It is rather mind-blowing to think about really, as refurbished products are already discounted from their original retail price and yet are in the same general condition.

Click here to shop @ Dell Refurbished Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 40BTS14
  • Discount: 40% off site wide
  • Expiry: 29th August 2014 14th September 2014

You also will receive free ground shipping on orders over $199. As you can expect from refurbished products, quantities are limited so grab any hot deals you see. Did I forget to mention that? This coupon code is valid on everything, which includes the Dell Hot Deals section. Stock changes almost daily, so check back often for new items.

Dell Refurbished currently has two Dell Professional Series P2210 22-inch Flat Panel Monitors priced at $155 apiece. You get a 22″ screen with a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050. The monitor has four USB 2.0 connectors as well as VGA, DVI-D, and DisplayPort. Both Energy Star compliant and EPEAT Gold-qualified, this monitor will not cost a lot of power to use. While this monitor is no longer available on the Dell website, I found the equivalent Dell 22″ monitor listed on Dell.com for $219.99 market price, on sale for $189.99. After coupon code, you will pay only $93 for the Dell P2210 monitor.

There appears to be a lot of laptops and desktops that are the same on Dell Refurbished. That may sound odd, but they may be lease returns or just a line that had some issues they needed to fix. There are a few Latitude E6500 Core 2 Duo 2.80 (T9600) business laptops in stock currently for $399. While the hard drive may be small, these are not designed for holding tons of information; rather they are designed to be super fast. You are working with a 2.8 GHz processor. Did you know your basic Macbook Air comes with a 1.4 GHz processor?  This baby will boot up and go through webpages so fast you do not even know what is what. I am on a gaming computer and it is only 2.3 GHz. After coupon code, this computer comes down to $239.40 and it would qualify for free shipping.

Rumour has it that Dell Refurbished will be restocking often, so if you do not see anything you like keep your eyes open and check back often. You have three more days to enjoy this deal!

For this and any future Dell Refurbished coupon codes, please visit the forum. Often they are put up there before we blog them.
