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.

Dell Canada: 12 Days of Deals

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Dell Canada: 12 Days of Deals

Dell Canada’s 12 Days of Deals begin today with sales on laptops, desktops, monitors, televisions, and electronics. Each set of deals lasts for 24 hours (5AM ET to 5AM ET). To get the best selection, always shop this sale early in the morning.

I linked directly to the electronics sale page, but you can also make a beeline for the 12 days of computer deals section as well. Here you can pick up a desktop computer, the Inspiron 3000 Small Desktop, for as low as $269.99 (was $299.99). This is a compact little desktop computer that gives you all the basics you need for computing with a 500GB hard drive, 4GB of memory and an Intel Celeron Processor (Dual Core). It should handle Facebook, Twitter, Word, and Excel programs just fine.

The electronics section has many more deals that are promising. Download a copy of McAfee Total Protection 1 PC 2014 for just $5, originally $59.99. I cannot say I have been entirely pleased with McAfee myself, but my computer has never had a virus *knock on wood* so it has been effective.

If you absolutely must have a mouse on the cheap, pick up a Logitech Optical Mouse for just $9.99. It is 33% off the regular price of $14.99. This is a corded mouse, so if you can spring an extra $5 I would recommend the Bestbuy wireless mouse deal that I mentioned yesterday.

If you are purchasing a desktop computer like the one above, then you will need a good monitor to go with it. Most desktops are bundled with a mouse and a keyboard so the only thing missing is a way to view all the content you will want to enjoy. The Dell 23 Monitor – S2340L is a beautiful full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 max) screen in a 16:9 widescreen format. The monitor regularly retails for $219.99, but is now on sale for $139.99. If this monitor is a bit too pricy still, you might be able to find a cheaper monitor during the 12 Days of Deals. However, if you combine the price of the desktop and the monitor, you are only spending $410 for an entire desktop computer – not bad.

Make sure to sign up for Dell Advantage before making any purchases, big or small – at Dell Canada. You can now earn 5% back in gift cards from Dell Canada on any purchase. Receive free shipping as well on any purchase with no minimum.

Dell Canada: Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15” Laptop Only $399.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on September 6, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Dell Canada: Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15” Laptop Only $399.99 & Free Shipping

If you’re on the hunt for a well-priced laptop for some basic home usage or perhaps for heading off to school, check out the offer on this Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15” Laptop on Dell Canada now. The price of this laptop starts at only $399.99 and it’s got a pretty decent spec for that price.

The laptop is usually priced at $488.99 but you will see an automatic discount of $89 in your cart, bringing it down to only $399.99 with free shipping from Dell Canada.

A quick note on the specifications of this laptop:

  • 1.9 GHz i3-4030U processor
  • 4GB DDR3L Memory
  • 500GB SATA Hard Drive
  • Windows 8.1 (64Bit) English
  • 15.6 inch LED Backlit Display (1366 x 768)

It’s good to get an Intel i3 processor for this low price point. Last week, I posted a very similar offer on a Dell laptop from BestBuy. Even though that one was $100 more expensive, it had a slightly higher spec. But today’s Dell laptop deal is really good if you only need a basic model for some light home usage.

This Dell laptop is perfect for browsing the internet, watching streaming movies, writing a document. It’s not really going to be up to the task of running highly intensive graphics programs or extremely power-hungry modelling software… but it’s good for basic tasks. The 4GB of ram means that you may have issues if trying to multi- task. There is the option to upgrade your laptop… if you want 8GFB of ram, you’re talking about a minimum spend $599.99 on that particular model.

Want To Save An Extra 5% Cashback?

If you sign up to be a member of the Dell Advantage program, you will get 5% cashback on a Dell ePromotional Card for all purchases over $100 (excluding taxes and fees). That means twenty bucks back on this laptop alone, never mind any other purchases you intend to make. Register here if you are interested! The send you out a promotional gift card which you can then make use of on site at a later stage.

15.6″ Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop: Save $200, Only $499 @ BestBuy / FutureShop (Expired)

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 1:00 PM

15.6 Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop: Save $200, Only $499 @ BestBuy / FutureShop  (Expired)

If you’re on the hunt for a reasonable priced laptop, consider the deal on this 15.6″ Dell Inspiron 15 – there’s a $200 saving on it right now if you’re buying from either Best Buy or Future Shop. Down from $699.99, you can pick up this Dell laptop for only $499.99.

The above Dell Inspiron laptop comes with free shipping from either of those stores.

As for the specification, I’ll highlight a few of the more important facts:

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4210U   (1.7 GHz)
  • Hard Drive: 1 TB
  • RAM: 8 GB DDR3
  • Native Screen Resolution: 1366 x 768
  • OS: Windows 8.1 (64-Bit)

Very good price for an i5 machine!

Just note that this laptop doesn’t have a disc drive… but who needs one of those, these days?

If you are buying this Dell laptop, it doesn’t make much difference as to which store from which you make your purchase. However, if you are buying from FutureShop, the sites offers you a few bundle deals which you might want to add on to your purchase, such as:

Just add those to your cart along with the laptop, for the bundle pricing.

From what I can see, this is the 5000 series of Dell Inspiron laptops. Their basic one with a similar (identical?) specification – the price starts at $579.99 on the Dell website itself, so it’s definitely a much better price to buy through Best Buy or FutureShop.

Perhaps if you are about to head back to school or university, or have a family member who is, this could be an ideal study aid, in a pretty decent price range.

Are you shopping for a new computer? Try out these coupon codes for up to $100 off your purchase from HP Canada to bring down the cost of your next purchase.

Click here to shop @ HP Canada now

  • Coupon Code: LabourD25
  • Discount: $25 off $150+
  • Coupon Code: 40SEPT799

  • Coupon Code: 100SEP1199
  • Discount: $100 off PCs priced $1199.99+
  • Expiry: 1st September 2014

While these are not substantial coupon codes, the percentage off does go up for higher priced computers. The other good thing is that you can team these coupons up with the current Labour Day Sale.

There is currently $100 off this HP Pavilion 23-h119 TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC bringing the cost from $899.99 down to $799.99. This is everything you need all in one computer. Featuring the ease of a touch screen tablet with the screen size of a monitor and the convenience of an all-in-one unit such as a laptop, this desktop is the perfect home computer.

  • 2 TB 7200 rpm SATA

Using the $40 off $799.99 coupon code, your total for this computer comes down to $759.99.

The lower value coupon is also pretty sweet for smaller purchases. I found this excellent sale on a bundle package for back to school. The HP Pavilion 15-p067ca + HP Z3000 Wireless Mouse + HP Premier3 Backpack + 2 Year Warranty Upgrade New is a good bundle valued at $759.97, and is on sale for $599.97 during this sale. The laptop boasts specs of:

HP offers free shipping on all orders, so there is no need to worry about extra shipping fees.

Lenovo Canada Labour Day Sale: Save Up To 33% On Laptops & Computers With Coupon Code (Expired)

Posted by on August 26, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Lenovo Canada Labour Day Sale: Save Up To 33% On Laptops & Computers With Coupon Code (Expired)

Back to school, back to school…whenever I hear those three words, I still somehow hear Adam Sandler’s voice ringing in my ears from Billy Madison. With Lenovo’s labour day sale, it’s no wonder why these words are so relevant at this time – after all, there is a myriad of money saving deals on laptops, computers, and computer accessories that are sure to get students and parents alike psyched for back to school shopping. At this time, we’re going to look at some of the best finds in Lenovo’s labour day sale, where you’d be able to save anywhere from 23% to 33% off of the retail price.

Click here to check this deal @ Lenovo now

  • Coupon Code: DOORBUSTER
  • Discount: Depends On Deal (From 23% to 33%)
  • Expires: Unknown

In order to enjoy some decent savings on the following laptops, you’ll need to enter the coupon code DOORBUSTER when purchasing the selection that best suits your needs. Listed below are some Lenovo laptops that you can get at a great price during this promotion:

Lenovo Y40 – $729 (Regular Price: $1,099 – Save 33%)
If you’re looking for a laptop that’s powerful enough to provide you with an enjoyable gaming experience, the Lenovo Y40 is the laptop for you. I’ve been burned before when it comes to choosing a laptop that had less than satisfactory specifications; I didn’t think I would play many games on my laptop compared to my desktop computer, but I was unfortunately very wrong (trying to play a game with lag can really try your patience). With a powerful AMD Radeon R9 M275 2 GB video card under the hood, this would be wonderful for gamers. To show you how much of a deal this is, the very similar Lenovo Y50 sells on Newegg for $1,199.99 (plus $12.99 shipping).

Lenovo Z50 – $419 (Regular Price: $599 – Save 30%)
You’ll have ample room to save projects, photos, videos, and music on the Lenovo Z50, thanks to its massive 1TB hard drive. This laptop retails for $699.99 (plus $9.99 shipping) on Newegg – that’s $280.99 more than the price that’s being offered by Lenovo!

Lenovo U40p – $579 (Regular Price: $799.99 – Save 27%)
If you find yourself “on the go” constantly, the Lenovo U40p can best accommodate your needs. I know I’m traveling constantly as a freelance writer, so it’s important to have a laptop that’s travel friendly like this model is. It weighs less than four pounds, and has an extended battery life that can last up to ten hours, according to the Lenovo website. The upgraded i7 model can be found on Amazon for a whopping $1,239.82 (plus $13.37 shipping).

Lenovo Flex 2 15 – $739 (Regular Price: $969 – Save 23%)
This particular laptop intrigues me the most. It’s just so different from the others in terms of its appearance, since it’s an incredibly thin and light machine that also has touchscreen support (thanks to its ten-point multitouch display). Here’s a snippet of a review of the Flex 2 15 from Lenovo’s website:

“I really LOVE Stand Mode! I’m an accountant always working from a stack of papers and I can get the built – in keyboard and track pad out of the way! Now I can put papers in front of me and a wireless keyboard off to the side – true desktop replacement but still portable. The built – in keyboard is nice and satiny smooth.”

When September is on the horizon, the one thing that’s typically seen is that there are many back to school sales out there, whether it’s from retail electronics giants, or if they’re popular online retailers. One thing to remember is that these prices don’t include taxes, shipping and handling, or any recycling fees, so keep that in mind when making your purchase. You can also find some great deals on computer accessories and desktop computers on Lenovo’s website, so check out their Labour Day sale by clicking here.

HP Canada Coupon Codes: Save Up To $100 On Computers

Tomorrow is the first day of August and I am sort of freaking out. For many families, that means one month until school starts up again. If your family needs a new computer, try out these coupon codes from HP Canada to bring down the cost of your next purchase.

Click here to shop @ HP Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 799SAVE
  • Discount: $40 off PCs priced $799.99+

  • Discount: $75 off PCs priced $999.99+
  • Coupon Code: 1199SAVE
  • Discount: $100 off PCs priced $1199.99+
  • Coupon Code: CLEARJULY
  • Discount: Additional 5% off clearance items
  • Expiry: 4th August 2014

While these are not substantial coupon codes, the percentage off does go up the greater the cost. There is also a 5% off coupon code to save you even more off clearance items, which can really help families on a budget.

In the clearance section, I found this HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11-e140ca Notebook PC on sale from $469.99 down to $399.99. It comes with the following:

  • Windows 8.1
  • AMD Dual-Core A4-1250 APU processor

  • 4 GB RAM
  • 500 GB hard drive

This is just right for the average family computer that is not going to be used for heavy gaming. If the computer is mainly used for Facebook, homework, shopping, and chatting with friends then this computer will work well. Use the coupon code for clearance items to receive an extra 5% off. After coupon code, this computer comes down to $379.99.

You can also use the other coupons on clearance items if you meet the requirements. I found this HP Spectre x2 13-h210dx Detachable Tablet PC on sale from $1,149.99 down to $999.99. It is a really cool device where the keyboard separates from the top portion of the laptop to make a tablet. It has 4GB of memory and a 128GB solid-state hard drive. Now, if I just used the extra 5% off coupon code, the price would come down to $949.99. However, the $75 off $999.99 coupon code is a better deal, so I used it and the discounted price of this tablet PC comes to $924.99. In total, you are saving $225 off the original price.

There are other really good deals like this on the HP website. Be sure to choose the best coupon code for your purchase. HP offers free shipping on all orders, so there is no need to worry about extra shipping fees.

Amazon.ca: $145 Seagate Expansion 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive + Free Shipping

Posted by on July 17, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Amazon.ca: $145 Seagate Expansion 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive + Free Shipping

I am always filling up my hard drive with photos and downloads.  Not any more with this deal from Amazon.ca:  Seagate Expansion 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive USB 3.0 on sale for only $145.98 (Reg. $397.99)!

Let’s talk about user friendliness.  This external hard drive is automatically recognized by Windows, so there is no software installation required.   It is as easy as opening the box, plugging in two cords, and you’re running.  I am fully computer literate, but I do sometimes have a hard time installing hardware.  The ease of installing this device really appeals to me.  It’s really just plug and play.

As Amazon.ca’s #1 best seller in external hard drives, Seagate’s model offers a 4TB capacity.  Again, hardware isn’t my thing, so I didn’t really have a great concept of what that meant in layman’s terms.  Here is an example of the type of storage capacity we’re talking about:

  • Up to 3000 hours of digital video
  • Up to 750 2 hour DVD movies
  • Up to 960 000 digital photos
  • Up to 49 980 hours of digital music

I think it’s possible that even I would have a hard time filling up that bad boy.  Compatible operating systems are Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP SP3 (32-bit and 64-bit).

Now I live out in the middle of nowhere.  I had no choice but to get wireless internet, and the reception within my house is spotty at best.  I’m often isolated in the office with my laptop, but often my family wants to watch a downloaded movie in the living room or bedroom, which involves a lot of work getting said movie from my computer to another device.  With an external hard drive, I would literally be able to unplug the 2 cords from one computer and pop them into another for a smooth transfer.  Easy peasy.  The unit is also compact in size, making for easy storage.

As far as comparison is concerned, I found the same external hard drive over tigerdirect.ca for $164.97.  Both Best Buy and Future Shop are selling the unit for $169.99.  On top of the low price, since this item is over $25, you automatically qualify for free super saver shipping at Amazon.ca.

We don’t know when this deal ends, so act fast!

Dell.ca: New Venue Tablet for $49 with Student Computer Purchase

Posted by on July 11, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Dell.ca: New Venue Tablet for $49 with Student Computer Purchase

Dell Canada has started their back to school offer for students. Purchase a select computer from Dell, and you will receive $121 off a Dell Venue 7″ tablet. Regularly $169.99, the cost of the tablet will be reduced to only $49.

While exploring this offer I found out that you do not have to just get the base model Venue 7″ to get this deal. You can actually get larger models and you will receive $121 off each of them. Here are the models available with this promo:

  • New Dell Venue 7 (16GB) Was $169.99 | Now $49
  • New Del Venue 7 (16 GB) Red Was $189.99 | Now $69
  • New Venue 8 16 GB Black Was $219.99 | Now $99
  • New venue 8 16 GB Red Was $239.99 | Now $119

The discounted prices are all for students when you purchase one of the computers through the above link. The student offer starts as low as $699.99, and the lowest priced computer I found was the Inspiron Desktop 3000 Series with 3 Year In-Home Support. For students this unit is actually discount as it regularly costs $748.99, and it is now only $699.99. The desktop features a fourth Generation Intel Core i5 Processor, Windows 8.1 operating system, 8GB Memory for speed, and a 1TB Hard Drive for storage. A dell wired keyboard and a three-button optical mouse are included. You would need to purchase a monitor separately or use your TV as your external monitor. Then add on your favourite tablet for a great discount.

Just a note on the Venue 7 and the Venue 8: besides the one-inch size difference, you should be aware of another major difference. Most notably, the Venue 8 allows you to expand the memory with an external microSD card. You can add on up to 32GB of memory. The Venue 7 comes with the memory it has (16GB) and does not have a slot for an external memory card. It was for this reason that my husband recently picked up the Dell Venue 8.

If you sign up for Dell Advantage, then you will get 5% cash back on a Dell ePromotional Card. I am still waiting to see how this works as we placed an order at Dell Canada a bit ago and are curious to see if the Dell Advantage actually processed. I had major difficulty getting it to properly link to the account. If anyone else has any success with this, let me know.

Apple Canada Back to School Offer

Posted by on July 1, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Apple Canada Back to School Offer

Apple Canada has just started up their back to school offer for students and teachers. With the purchase of desktops, laptops, iPads, and iPhones you will receive up to a $110 Apple Store gift card.

The first offer is two-fold. When you buy a laptop or desktop in the Apple Store for Education, you save money off the original retail price.

Buy a Mac for university and get $110 Apple Store gift card only at the Apple Store for Education. For example, an 11″ Macbook Air will cost you $949 as a student, which is $50 off the regular price of $999. Then, you will also receive the $110 bonus Apple Store Card.

In the land of desktops, the 21.5-inch: 1.4GHz Mac is $1149 regularly, but it costs $1099 with educational pricing. You will also receive that $110 gift card with your purchase.

If you purchase an iPad for college, you will receive a $55 Apple store gift card and receive educational pricing discounts. The iPad mini starts at $319 at Apple, but with the educational discount, it will cost students and teachers just $299 and you get the bonus $55 Apple Store gift card. Likewise, the Apple Air in the educational store starts at $499 instead of the regular $519 and comes with that gift card.

If you buy an iPhone for school, you will also receive a $55 Apple Store gift card but there are no further educational discounts. It is still a good deal, if you have wanted to get your hands on an iPhone because you can use the gift card to load your phone up with all the apps you want to buy and some great music as well.

This was always my favourite time of year to buy my Apple products. I really enjoyed combining the gift and the student discount to optimize my buying power. My graduation is in November so I will no longer be a student for the first time in many years. I am now carefully considering what I should buy before my status as a student ends best to take advantage of student discounts like these. You never realize how nice this kind of discount is until you are no longer eligible!

Apple Canada offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more so any major electronics, like these, that you will be buying will ship free.

Newegg Canada: Microsoft Keyboard Only $7 & Free Shipping

Newegg Canada: Microsoft Keyboard Only $7 & Free Shipping

Newegg is having a flash shell shocker sale on the Microsoft 200 keyboard, now only $6.99, regularly $19.99.

There isn’t too much to say about this keyboard except that I have the exact same one. The keys are functional, normal and black. It also has a USB port, Windows start button and 10-key pad. It is simply a very affordable keyboard for your computer.

My thoughts are that even if you don’t need a new keyboard, you get this one (or up to three if this is your pleasure), as it will make a great back-up keyboard when the one you have inevitably has a problem. I’ve had a number of keyboards and something usually goes wrong with them – drinks spilled on them, something sticky inside them, letters rub off, keys fall off, or in a fit of rage you chuck it when your internet keeps going down. Ok, the last one has never happened, but I have thought of it when I’m trying to get my work done and my internet shuts off and on repeatedly. I do not recommend keyboard abuse though.

I also love that there is free shipping on this item, since there is not much worse than having a really hot deal for under $10, but free shipping is only available over $100 or it is more than the cost of the item.

I’m going to assume this deal won’t last long, so pull out your credit card and get to buying this before they sell out or the price goes back to $20.

Dellrefurbished.ca Coupon Code Exclusive: 33% Discount Site-Wide!

Posted by on May 17, 2014 at 8:27 AM

Dellrefurbished.ca Coupon Code Exclusive: 33% Discount Site Wide!

For the Victoria Day long weekend, Dell Finanacial Services Canada has sent us an exclusive coupon code which will get you a 33% discount on anything on their site! Here is the information:

Click here to use the Dell Refurbished coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE33
  • Discount: 33% off
  • Expires: 23rd May 2014

Please note that when you’re testing this coupon code in your shopping cart, you may have to enter your shipping postcode before you see a discount appear. That’s what happened to me when I was testing out the promo code.

In case you are not aware, Dellrefurbished.ca, also known as Dell Financial Services, is the place where you can buy any refurbished Dell computers (as you might be able to tell by the name). The site offers many hundred premium grade refurbished off lease computers and accessories. In case you’re concerned about buying refurbished, all items come with a 100 day warranty as well as a 30 day return policy.

And on to the deals!

I’ve been a huge fan of Dell monitors for years now. On the site, monitor prices start at $71 for the likes of this Dell E Series E190S 19-inch Flat Panel Monitor. When you add the coupon code, it drops to only $46.86! Wow! Shipping for me showed at $8, which isn’t too bad. If you want to go slightly bigger in screen size, the Dell Professional Series P2211H 21.5-inch Flat Panel Monitor is priced at $139 and would be only $91.74 with the Dell coupon code.

If you’re checking out the deals on the Dell Refurbished laptops, the prices start at just $327 for this Latitude E6400 Core 2 Duo 2.53 (P8700) which would be only $215.82 with the coupon code added. Or, right at the top of the scale is this Dell Latitude E6420 Core i5 2.60 (i5-2540M), priced at $613 and it drops to only $404 when you apply the promo code.

There are some very good prices in the Dell Refurbished store, and backed by the 100 day warranty means you could potentially get a good bargain here. Shipping depends on what you buy and where you live, but you can easily get a quote for this in your shopping cart.

Dell Canada: Laptop or Desktop for Under $400

Posted by on April 7, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Dell Canada: Laptop or Desktop for Under $400

Need to replace your clunky old laptop with the blue screen of death or need a new desktop on a budget? Dell Canada has two deals on right now where you can buy a brand new desktop or a laptop for under $400 each.

First of all let me introduce you to my little friend the Inspiron 3000 Small Desktop. Regularly priced at $449.99, this computer is now on sale for $399.99. He comes with 4GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Premium for all of us who abhor Windows 8 *shudder*. The design is super compact so it won’t take up a lot of space in your home. One of my favourite features is the multi-media card reader, which I use on my computer all the time when transferring photos from my DSLR. As per usual, monitor and accessories must be purchased separately if you don’t already have them.

The second fantastic deal is on this little Inspiron 15 (non-touch) laptop. Originally $379.99, it is now down to $349.99. The next time my mother does in her current laptop she is totally getting one of these. This is the perfect basic laptop for anyone needing to use a word processor, social media, and email. It also features 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive so, in my humble opinion, it is better than the desktop because it has its own built in monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Receive free shipping on all items at Dell Canada.
