LG G3 Smart Phone Only $20 w/ 2-Year term & BONUS $300 Cash Card & FREE Car Charger @ Costco.ca

Posted by on June 28, 2015 at 2:30 PM

LG G3 Smart Phone Only $20 w/ 2 Year term & BONUS $300 Cash Card & FREE Car Charger @ Costco.ca

At Costco Canada you can get bonus Costco Cash Cards with select phones on a two-year contract. When you sign up for a two-year Gold or Platinum plan with Virgin Mobile – with the LG G3 phone – you will receive a bonus $300 Costco Cash Card and a bonus car charger. The phone will only cost you $19.99.

You need to get this promotion in-store at Costco Canada. When you click through the link above, select your province and then open the tab for Virgin Mobile. While you do receive bonus cards at the other three cell phone carriers, the Costco Bonus Card with Virgin Mobile is the highest value.

LG G3 Smart Phone Only $20 w/ 2 Year term & BONUS $300 Cash Card & FREE Car Charger @ Costco.ca

Now, this deal may not be available for all provinces but it was available for all the ones I checked including Ontario, New Brunswick, Alberta, British Columbia, and Quebec!

I think this is the only time lately that I have wished I was a Costco Canada member. I do not often blog in-store phone deals, but this is a doozie and I am very impressed. I am also a fan of Virgin Mobile as they have some of the best plans in Canada. Both my parents are with Virgin Mobile and I just got a dear friend of mine to make the switch from Telus to Virgin Mobile as well.

Now, the phone! I am not too familiar with the LG line of phones but I do know this brand has been around for a while. LG is well respected in the electronics world. This phone has

  • Android 4.4 OS
  • 5.5-inch quad HD display
  • 2.5 GHz quad-core processor
  • 13 MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization

CNET reviews this phone favourably. With a 4/5/5 star rating, CNET celebrates the phone’s features:

The LG G3 has solid call quality and LTE data speeds, a great camera, a brilliantly sharp display, a snappy quad-core processor, and a flat UI that makes Android 4.4 look good. LG’s flagship has also improved on the previous model — the new G3 comes with a removable battery and microSD card slot, both things the G2 lacked.

The primary negative is related to battery life: the QHD display is quite the power hog. Overall, this is quite a solid phone and well worth picking up especially with such a fantastic offer from Costco Canada.

Costco Canada: $120 Off iRobot Roomba 780 Vacuum Cleaning Robot – Now $479 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 28, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Costco Canada: $120 Off iRobot Roomba 780 Vacuum Cleaning Robot   Now $479 & Free Shipping

Is Sunday your cleaning day? It is mine! If you’re tired of vacuuming, then get the iRobot Romba 780 vacuum cleaning robot. It’s currently on sale for $478.99 at Costco, which is a $120 price reduction from its usual price of $598.99. Shipping is absolutely free as well.

Okay, so a cleaning robot like the iRobot Roomba wouldn’t necessarily eliminate the vacuuming chore altogether but it’s still a great way to try and keep the house clean in-between vacuums — or so I’ve heard.

The iRobot Roomba 780 features a 3-stage cleaning system with AeroVac Series 2, which is designed to pick up as much dirt and debris as possible. It’s even supposed to be great for pet hair but you would have to test that one out for yourself as we all know how plentiful it can be! With the Dirt Ditect Series 2, it also also acoustically sense where there’s dirt for what I can only assume is supposed to be a more in-depth cleaning.

On top of including 2 Virtual Wall Lighthouses, which you can use to control where the Roomba goes, it also comes with the following extra items:

  • extra set of brushes (side, bristle & beater)
  • 2 cleaning tools (round & flat)
  • 2 extra HEPA filters

Oddly, there are no reviews for this version of the Roomba on Costco’s site but I did find a number of positive reviews at Best Buy, where it’s currently priced at $649.99. Out of 12 customer reviews, it received a general rating of 4.3/5 stars with reviews like this funny one:

You should see this Roomba navigate it’s way around my place like a blind three-toed sloth. It went into a mess of cables and got stuck for like 45 seconds then escaped. I breathed a huge sigh of relief that it got out. Then it went right ahead and tried to go back over the same cables. At which point I’m thinking, “Hey robot,, you just got out of a snake pit of cables and now you want to dive right back in?” I’ve never had to help it though.

In fact, it’s $649.99 at Amazon.ca as well.

Cleaning products like vacuum robots can be a hit or miss but personally, I’m very tempted to give this one a try for the possibility off a reduced amount of dust bunnies and pet fur balls flying around in-between official vacuums.

4×6 Photo Prints For Only $0.09 Each @ Costco Canada *BUMP*

Posted by on June 25, 2015 at 5:30 PM

4x6 Photo Prints For Only $0.09 Each @ Costco Canada *BUMP*

 

*I had originally wrote this deal back in May when the photo prints were $0.10 each, but now they are just $0.09!*

The warmer weather has arrived, and my phone is already full of adorable photos of my two year old son. To make some space and preserve the moments, I need to get these pictures printed. Right now Costco Canada has a promotion where you can print 4×6 photos for just $0.09 each. There is no telling how long this will last, so get your order in while you can.

A picture is worth 1000 words, or so they say. To me, some pictures are priceless. How many photos do you have on your phone or computer that are memories you never want to forget? I have lost important photos countless times due to my electronics crashing. To make sure you keep your memories forever, get your photos printed. Now is the time to do so, Costco Canada has their popular promotion going on right now where you will pay just $0.09 per 4×6 photo print. That is a great price compared to what other Canadian retailers are charging. Take a look at this price comparison:

While I am a tad disappointed that they no longer seem to offer their $0.08 per 4 x 6 photo promotion, I am content with paying $0.09 each. There is no minimum amount of photos of required, and no maximum as well. This is awesome because other competitors like PhotoLab seem to offer prices similar to this when you order a minimum of 75 or 100 photos.

You will need a Costco membership to take advantage of this promo. This is simply because Costco.ca does not offer shipping right to your home when you order photos. You will have them shipped to your closest Costco Canada location for free and be able to pick them up at your earliest convenience. They will give you an estimate wait time at the end of your purchase, but I have never had to wait longer than a week for my priceless photos to arrive. I also find their quality to be much better than Walmart and some other competitors, but everyone has their different opinions when it comes to that.

So, Moosers, what are you waiting for? Sign up for your free account online at Costco.ca to get started. Just remember you will need to present a valid Costco membership card to pick up your offer.

(LAST DAY!) Costco Canada: $80 Off Rolling Thunder Fireworks Kit – Now $220 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 14, 2015 at 3:00 PM

(LAST DAY!) Costco Canada: $80 Off Rolling Thunder Fireworks Kit   Now $220 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

You have until the end of today to get the Rolling Thunder fireworks kit on sale for just $219.99 (reg. $299.99) at Costco. Shipping is free as well.

Every year, Costco offers a significant discount on some of their fireworks. So although this one expires at the end of the day, it’s possible that the sale will be extended or perhaps, an entirely different fireworks kit will be discounted next week instead. In any case, if you have been looking for fireworks to light up on a special occasion like Canada Day or maybe even St-Jean Baptiste if you’re in Quebec, then this kit is definitely worth getting.

The Rolling Thunder fireworks kit comes with a total of 26 pieces, amongst which you will find:

(LAST DAY!) Costco Canada: $80 Off Rolling Thunder Fireworks Kit   Now $220 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

  • Specialty bombettes: 1 green avenger
  • Brazilian shells: 1 Yard Dog, 1 Brazillian Bombshell & 1 Shazzam
  • Pro-Pyro series cakes: 1 Hell’s Gate, 1 Royal Brocade & 1 Lock Down
  • Cakes & fanned: 1 Hot Tamali, 1 Shotgun Wedding, 1 Anger Management, 1 No Mercy, 1 Devil Revenge, 1 Greedy Goblins, 1 Symphonic, 1 Galactic, 1 Gold Dust, 1 Patriot, 1 Cosmic Blast, 1 Scream Dream, 1 Light the Night, 1 Night Assault & 1 Modern Warfare
  • Barrages: 1 Dynamo & 1 Hell Fire
  • Bombshells: 1 Peony (3 pack) & 1 Paradox

Quite the names, aren’t they? I had to triple check my typing of these very interesting-sounding fireworks to make sure that I wrote them correctly! The ones that have me the most curious to see what they look like are the: Shazzam, Hell’s Gate, Hot Tamali and of course, the Anger Management ones.

Just looking at the picture of all of the included fireworks also makes you realize just how many fireworks you will be getting – it’s quite a lot and you might even need to be two or more people getting them ready and setting them up for a grandiose fireworks night!

Price comparing proved slightly challenging as most sites don’t ship to Canada but I did find the Competition Killer package at RocketFireworks.ca on sale for $259.99 (reg. $285). Not much of a competition killer though as it only contains 9 cakes, whereas the Rolling Thunder kit at Costco comes with 15 cakes and fanned, along with other types mentioned above.

As always when buying fireworks, do make sure to check your city’s laws on these. Not all cities allow the lightning of fireworks and some only allow them on national holidays.

Costco Canada: Xbox LIVE 12mth Gold Membership Was $49 | Now $39

Posted by on June 11, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Costco Canada: Xbox LIVE 12mth Gold Membership Was $49 | Now $39

Xbox Live memberships are a hot commodity in the gaming world. Costco Canada has reduced the Xbox Live 12-month gold membership from $48.99 down to $38.99. This is an electronic code that will be emailed to you: no shipping necessary.

The best part of this deal is the seller: this is not some Xbox live code from a unknown seller or a sketchy website you are not entirely sure you can trust. Costco Canada is a well-known business that has been around for years. They stand behind their products so you can be sure these codes will work. I did a little price comparing against other online retailers:

  • $44.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $44.99 @ Dell Canada
  • $59.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $59.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $59.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $56.83 @ Walmart Canada

You are buying an electronic code that will be emailed to you by Codes2Go within 2 days of your purchase. You need to make sure that the email address you have on file is correct as that is the email they will use to send your Xbox Live membership code.

There are multiple benefits to Xbox Live memberships. As a member, you will receive discounted prices on new and old games. These discounts are exclusive to gold members. Membership easily pays for itself with the free games you receive per month. This month’s free games are:

Xbox One:

  • Massive Chalice
  • Pool Nation FX

Xbox 360:

  • Just Cause 2 (June 1-15)
  • Thief (June 16-30)

Usually, each console receives two free games per month. Sometimes you will receive more. The games change each month and you can score some pretty big titles once in a while. Many people love these deals, but you will always find the odd guy out there who isn’t happy unless he gets the newest and the best games free. I just ignore those people for the most part: You pay $40 for membership and you want free games worth $60 each month? I don’t think so!

Of course, the discounts on game prices are well worth the price of gold membership even without the free games. You receive 50 to 75% off the retail price of many games. One of my favourite gold deals this week is 70% off NBA Live 15. Many of the sports games are on discount this week.

Costco: $100 Multipack iTunes Cards (4 x $25) Only $84.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 10, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Costco: $100 Multipack iTunes Cards (4 x $25) Only $84.99 & Free Shipping

If you buy as much music on iTunes as I do, then you may want to invest in some discount iTunes cards. Costco Canada is selling a $100 multipack of iTunes cards, that is four $25 cards, for $84.99. That is a 15% discount on these gift cards.

All Costco orders come with free shipping, thus you only pay the cost of the cards and no more.

Costco Canada normally sells this pack at a bit of a discount. On a regular day, you can get the $100 multipack for $94.99. This offer is an extra $10 off Costco Canada’s regular price. In total, it is $15 (15%) off the retail value of those gift cards.

Gift card redemption is easy. You simply log into iTunes on your mobile device or your computer. When in the iTunes store, look at the right hand column. Under ‘Music Quick Links’ you will see ‘Redeem’. Just click there and enter the code you find on the back of your iTunes cards after you peel back the safety sticker.

As this deal includes four $25 iTunes gift cards, this offer is also fantastic for making gifts. iTunes gift cards are one of the most versatile gift cards you can give away as almost everyone uses iTunes these days. It is the industry standard. Not only do people purchase music on iTunes, they also purchase music videos, purchase or rent movies, purchase or rent TV shows, and more. You can also purchase more icloud storage if you are running low. I own a few TV series on iTunes including two seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender and two seasons of Sherlock.

The iCloud storage potential is of interest to me. My laptop refuses to perform a full back up to an external hard drive. The good people at Alienware (and by extension, Dell) suggested I use iCloud, OneDrive, or Dropbox as a backup. However, I use around 350GB of my hard drive. Thus, I will probably need to pay for storage and this iTunes deal would let me save money on additional storage.

These cards are for redemption on the Canadian only iTunes. They may be available in store as well (if you have a Costco card). You do not need a Costco Card to shop on Costco’s online website. There is a limit of five per customer.

AR Blue Clean 1700 PSI Pressure Washer Now Only $130 & Free Shipping @ Costco Canada

Posted by on June 8, 2015 at 12:00 PM

AR Blue Clean 1700 PSI Pressure Washer Now Only $130 & Free Shipping @ Costco Canada

Clean your deck, your car and your home with the AR Blue Clean 1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer. This clean machine has just dropped to a low price of $130, plus ships completely free.

The outside of my condo could use a good cleaning. I tried to use the hose, but the siding is still covered in lots of dirt and salt leftover from the long winter. I live in a condo and my neighbour washed her siding, making mine look even more awful. Do not be fooled, a pressure washer needs some power behind it to be effective. Pressure washers without pressure are essentially a portable garden hose, so you want to consider a model that has a bit of power for home use.

Luckily, Costco Canada has come to my rescue by dropping the price on the AR Blue Clean 1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer. This pressure washer will have enough power to blast grime and winter away from your yard. This is a lightweight unit weighing in at about 23 lbs includes wheels and a handle designed to go where you need it to go. The nozzle has an adjustable spray, which means you can choose if you need a wide spray or a thin and powerful more direct spray. I personally like using a more direct spray to clean off my daughter’s play structure and blast away all of those hidden spider eggs on the underside. Once you start pressure-washing items in your backyard, you will discover how satisfying it is to watch that dirt blast away. Clean up your fence, blast away your walkways and make your deck luck shiny and new. Your machine will include a one-year warranty, which should help give you peace of mind while you try this machine out. Also, remember Costco’s return policies are amazing if you are at all hesitant to purchase.

I found this exact unit discounted slightly at Amazon Canada for $167.99. Lowes.ca is carrying a Kolbalt model with 1700 psi for $199. This machine at Costco is a great price for the pressure it has.

The reviews on this pressure washer look mixed recently, but looking through the history of all the reviews, most buyers seem happy with this unit and it holds a strong four out of five-star rating. The most common complaints are the length of the hose and that the attachments and connectors are made of plastic instead of something sturdier. Most reviewers agree this unit is perfect for the average residential user. Here is one happy review:

I used other pressure washers and nothing comes close to this unit I bought. For personal and to it use around the house, this is so far the best I have come across. The water does not leak; the wire is long and can reach around the corners. It does a perfect job end of the day.

I had better grab one of these before they are gone. That siding on my house is not going to clean itself!

Costco Canada: $20 Off 4 x 4kg Scotts Supreme Grass Seed – Now $80 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 24, 2015 at 10:05 AM

Costco Canada: $20 Off 4 x 4kg Scotts Supreme Grass Seed   Now $80 & Free Shipping

Want a perfect and lush evergreen lawn? Then get ready to put in some work! Luckily, Costco has a pretty fantastic deal on grass seed but only until the end of the day! Usually priced at $99.99, you can currently save $20 on 16kg of Scotts Supreme Grass Seed and get it for just $79.99 with absolutely free shipping.

As it turns out, there is only one day left to this deal, so if you’re in need of grass set, I suggest you jump on it before it expires at 11:59pm tonight.

As I already mentioned, this deal includes free shipping, but keep in mind that you will be receive four bags of 4kg (8.8lbs) each. Plus you can use this grass seed on any part of the lawn as it’s all-purpose and does great in both sunny and shaded areas. It’s also appropriate for over-seeding, lawn repair or even a new lawn.

For the grass experts out there that are interested, this grass seed contains red fescue, Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass.

At Canadian Tire, I found a similar Scotts grass seed, the Scotts pure premium sun & shade grass seed priced at $14.99 for 1kg. So if you were get 16kg, which is how much Costco’s deal includes, then you would be looking at paying $239.84!

Although I recently bought a tomato plant (after receiving loads of very helpful tips from Kristy, mind you), my thumb couldn’t be further from being green. A couple of weeks ago, when it was still too cold to even consider this, I visited my local Home Depot to see what I could do about my lawn as it’s in a pitiful state. Although I have yet to use it as it’s been pretty chilly here lately, I walked out with a bag of Scotts grass seed. If you want perfect lawn, then this is what you’re going to need but what hardly anyone ever tells you is that there is a lot of watering required, as you can see by this review:

I watered the lawn every morning and evening, non stop for 3 weeks. It takes LOTS of water. On a bright side our lawn looks like a golf course now. We have that thick dark green coverage in front of our house. The grass is equally beautiful on north and south side of the house. This product won’t provide any results without some TLC.

That’s actually the only review this Scotts grass seed has on Costco’s product page, but it’s a 5/5 star one, especially with the pro being that the lawn looks like a gold course. The only con is that it’s: “labour intensive needs lots of watering“, which is really quite understandable.

Costco Canada: $115 Off Summer Infant Baby Zoom Wi-Fi Video Monitor – Was $225 | Now $110

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Costco Canada: $115 Off Summer Infant Baby Zoom Wi Fi Video Monitor   Was $225 | Now $110

Have you been looking for a baby video monitor? Costco has a pretty awesome deal on one! During the next couple of days, you can save 51% on the Summer Infant Baby Zoom wi-fi video monitor and get it for just $110.24, instead of its usual price of $224.99. Shipping is free as well.

Think of this video monitor as it being a regular baby watching device but with added wi-fi capabilities. This means that you can watch your baby from your smart phone, tablet or laptop, whether you’re at home or perhaps at work. It also has two-communication, so you could directly try to soothe your baby without actually going into the room.

As this is a wi-fi baby monitor, you can rest assured that it is secured with a login and encrypted video. Just make sure to make your password extra complicated with loads of different letters, numbers, capitals, etc.

It can also monitor the room temperature, and will allow you to pan, scan and zoom, whether during the day or night.

Arguably, at 2.5″, the screen is on the smaller scale when it comes to baby video monitors but at this price, it should be more than manageable. You don’t exactly need the largest screen either as after you get over the initial urge to check on your baby every single second, you will then only glance at it when you hear your baby stir or wake.

There are no reviews for this video monitor on Costco’s site but at Toys R Us, where it’s currently on sale for $249.98 (reg. $299.99), it has a total score of 3.5/5 stars with 16 ratings. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I am able to scan the entire room. I like that I am able to view & communicate with them with either the original unit or with my phone. the screen on the unit itself is pretty tiny but it’s a good size on my phone. The camera moves at the touch of a finger, faster on the unit, slightly delayed on the wifi. I like that you can add a second camera and I will likely use this as a nanny cam. It works well both in day light (colour) and in darkness (black and white).

Another reviewer pointed out the poor battery life, which they stated as coming down to 60% after two hours. I would argue that compared to other video monitors, this actually isn’t too shabby! I have the Motorola video monitor and it seems that all I do all day every day is charge it. Poor battery life seems inevitable with baby video monitors, especially when these are techier like the Summer Infant one as it as wi-fi capabilities.

Philips Sonicare FlexCare Premium Toothbrush 2 Pack Was $180 | Now $145 & Free Shipping @ Costco Canada

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 8:35 AM

Philips Sonicare FlexCare Premium Toothbrush 2 Pack Was $180 | Now $145 & Free Shipping @ Costco Canada

Dental care is important, and you are the first line of defence for your teeth. Start a healthier habit with the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Premium Toothbrush. This double pack was $179.99 but is now $144.99 and includes free shipping to your door.

I had no problems with dental care until I had my daughter, not even a cavity. In the time I was pregnant, my daughter managed to leech enough minerals that now I have trouble with cavities. My friend just had a baby and is also having the same issue. I had been using a manual toothbrush previously, but my dentist recommended upgrading to an electronic toothbrush to get a better clean.

If you too need to upgrade, now is your chance. This Philips Sonicare Flexcare Toothbrush is on sale in a double pack, much cheaper than you would pay for a single toothbrush. This kit comes with two electronic toothbrushes, two brush heads, a UV sanitizer to keep your brush clean with the charger integrated, two travel cases and a travel charger. This is a great pack to split within a family. Even if you are on your own purchasing this, I would like the double pack for travel so I could keep one at home and one for on the go. You also have two programs with timers to make sure you clean for the recommended amount of time each day.

Price Comparison

The discount on this item may look initially small, but if you compare it to what else is available on the market you are saving quite a bundle. Over at Amazon Canada, you could pick up this same double toothbrush set for $239.95. Best Buy Canada carries this same toothbrush in a single pack for $199.99, which is still more expensive than the Costco double pack. It would cost you $399.98 to pick up two of these at Best Buy Canada.  Shop.ca had these toothbrushes on sale for $129.99 for one toothbrush but are sold out. Buying two would have cost you $259.98 if they were still available. London Drugs has a similar Flexcare toothbrush in a platinum edition instead of this premium edition selling for $199.99, or $399.98 if you bought two. Costco Canada’s deal on a double pack of these toothbrushes is looking great now.

Reviews

If you are looking for an electronic toothbrush with sound reviews, this brush has it. Over at Costco Canada’s website, there are ten reviews and every single review is rated as five stars. Here is one happy reviewer.

Philips Sonicare FlexCare Premium Toothbrush 2 Pack Was $180 | Now $145 & Free Shipping @ Costco Canada

You do need a Costco membership to grab this deal, or a friend with a membership who will help you out. On the Costco website, it mentions you can grab this deal in store at some locations. With free shipping, I would let them bring it to me rather than fight the crazy Costco parking lot.

Costco Canada: 2 x $50 WaySpa e-Gift Cards For Just $75!

Posted by on May 10, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Costco Canada: 2 x $50 WaySpa e Gift Cards For Just $75!

Mother’s Day is already upon us and if you are still frantically searching for a gift or perhaps are looking for a gift to make it up to your Mom for forgetting this iconic day, then I found a pretty sweet deal for you (though of course, anyone can take advantage of this too!): at Costco, you can get 2 $50 WaySpa e-certificates for just $74.99 — that comes up to 25% or $25 off.

Today, my Mother admitted to me that she still hasn’t used a spa gift card that she received as a gift last Christmas. To me, that seems like pure madness. Having become a Mom myself last year, I have been dreaming of going to a spa for a while now and if I had received that same card, I would have probably tried to go the same day! Well okay, maybe the following day, but you get my point!

Every now and again, we blog about WaySpa deals as they frequently have a promotion where you can get a $50 gift card for $39. In fact, we have had one such WaySpa coupon code posted on the Bargainmoose forum for a couple of weeks now but Costco’s deal is slightly better as if you were to get two gift cards directly from WaySpa, then you would be looking at $22 in savings, whereas at Costco, it’s $25.

You need to have a Costco membership to get the gift cards but what’s cool about this deal is that they come in the form of e-certificated. This means that there is no waiting for the mail to arrive and if you’re looking for a late Mother’s Day gift, then this one is super awesome as you just need to buy and print. Plus, even if you don’t have a printer, you could just directly forward the e-mail to your Mom or whoever else you’re gifting it too.

Speaking of which, this isn’t just a perfect gift for Mothers! You could get it for yourself or even treat a significant other to a nice relaxing time. WaySpa gift cards may be redeemed at over 2000 spa and wellness salons across Canada, so there are plenty of location options to choose from!

Costco Canada: $30 Off Ooma Telo 2 VoIP Home Phone Service Bundle (+ 3 FREE Premier Service Months – $60 Value)

Posted by on April 25, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Costco Canada: $30 Off Ooma Telo 2 VoIP Home Phone Service Bundle (+ 3 FREE Premier Service Months   $60 Value)

Are you still using a landline phone to make all of your phone calls? Get Ooma instead. It will allow you to make free Canadian and long distance calls just by using your internet. Right now at Costco, the Ooma Telo 2 VoIP home phone service bundle is on sale for 99.99 (reg. $129.99) and also comes with a bonus offer of 3 free months of premier service, which is a $59.97 value.

To call anywhere in Canada or internationally, all you need to do is plug the Ooma, connect it to your internet and use a regular phone. There’s no need for a PC or even a headset as everything is done via your internet connection.

What I find cool about the Ooma is that even if your internet happens to crash, then all calls will be re-directed onto your cell phone.

As I already mentioned, this Costco deal includes 3 free months of Premier service but after that, you would need to subscribe to the service and the costs depend on the features that you want. At its core, the Ooma Premier is $9.99 per month (or $119.99 per year) and you have the option of tacking on additional features like: enhanced voicemail, number porting, extended warranty, directory assistance and a couple of others.

Out of 21 reviews on Costco’s site, the Ooma scored an impressive 4.1/5 stars with reviews like this one:

I have been on Netalk and tried Magic Jack. No way they come close to OOMA. Cost is more but well spent. Setup was easy. The others dont have customer service. OOMA is great.

Alternatively for those of you with a business, the Ooma Office VoIP business phone service is $50 off. Originally priced at $249.99, it’s now $199.99 and includes 3 Linx wireless phone jacks, conference calling and get ready for this… a virtual receptionist. Plans for this one start at $19.98 per month and you have the option of transferring your current number.

I’m sure some of you would prefer to pick up an electronic like this in-stores but there’s no way of checking if your local Costco carries the Ooma. On the bright side, if you order online, then it will be shipped straight to your door for free within 4-10 business days, with every chance of it being even quicker than that.

Costco.ca: Canada Golf Card Just $40 (Up To 50% Off Greens!)

Costco.ca: Canada Golf Card Just $40 (Up To 50% Off Greens!)

Golfing season is nearly upon us and it may even have started for some of you Moosers, so here’s a nifty little special that you’re going to want to take advantage of if you’re an avid golfer or know someone who is: at Costco, you can get the Canada golf card for just $39.99. Shipping is always free at Costco as well.

At their official site, the Canada golf card is actually priced at $49.95, so in all actuality, Costco’s price is $10 less or more precisely, it’s a 20% price reduction. For anyone who golfs regularly, a one-time season fee of $40 is sure to yield a whole lot more savings in the long-term.

Plus, this card is good for until the end of the year. Of course, the cold and snow will eventually get in the way of that but it’s cool that there is no set date towards the end of summer or even fall, especially since different golf courses close at varying dates.

I have to admit that I had never heard of the Canada golf card before spotting it at Costco but the fact that it features the following perks definitely sounds like it’s more than worth it:

  • Up to 50% off over 500 golf courses in Canada
  • 2,500+ saving coupons
  • Works on certain courses in the USA (incl. Washington & Arizona)
  • Select discount at driving ranges & golf academies

What’s interesting is that next to the part where it says that this card may be used at over 500 golf courses, there is also a mention of: “now featuring Ontario golf courses!!” with two explanation points like that, which makes me thing that this is perhaps a newly added feature. Another cool part about the card is that you can use as many as four coupons per golf course!

If you have a smart phone, then you can also get the Canada Golf Card app on either iTunes or Google Play Store. This way, you won’t need to carry your card or coupon book around with you and will be able to easily see all of the discounts and features available directly from the comfort of your own hand.

Costco Canada: $40 Off Bissell SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner – Now $100

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Costco Canada: $40 Off Bissell SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner   Now $100

Cleaning after pets is serious business, especially if yours shed a lot. Costco has just discounted the Bissell SpotBot pet deep cleaner by $40. Originally priced at $139.99, it’s now on sale for just $99.99. Shipping is free as well.

According to its description, the Bissell SpotBot pet deep cleaner “cleans deeper, better and faster due to its innovative new “needle” technology”, an attribute that I’m particularly curious about because with two long-haired cats, my place is in need of a good vacuuming every couple of days. With a one year old baby crawling around everywhere, it’s hard to keep up with all of the cleaning and even then, it feels as though the vacuum I have just doesn’t do as good of a job on carpets as perhaps this Bissell one might.

Do keep in mind that this cleaner is best used on rugs or even material couches. In fact, I’m even tempted to get it for those times that something gets spilled on the carpet. There’s nothing worse than having to get on your hand and knees to scrub the stain away, so if a hand-held cleaner can do the job, than that’s even better!

Although Costco has reduced this cleaner by $40, it’s actually more expensive at other stores. While Amazon has it on sale for $149 (Reg. $223.99), Sears is selling it for $169.99. Since Costco’s site doesn’t have any reviews for it, here’s one I found at Sears:

This is the best upholstery cleaner I’ve ever owned. I have 2 pugs and clean my couch weekly as a result. The Bissell SpotBot makes this job quick and painless and does a fantastic job deep cleaning the fabric.

At Sears, this pet deep cleaner actually has 12 reviews with a total rating of 4.2/5 stars — that’s pretty good in my book! Another reviewer also mentioned how great this cleaner is on fur balls or even little gifts that pets sometimes leave on carpets. I have had to throw away a carpet in the past because there was just no salvaging the mess of fur balls, spills and gifts but I’m sure that if I had used the Bissell cleaner to spot clean, then it would still be in perfect condition!

Costco Canada: Champion 4000W Gasoline Generator Was $480 | Now $330 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 9:55 AM

Costco Canada: Champion 4000W Gasoline Generator Was $480 | Now $330 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Costco’s got a fantastic deal on the Champion 4000W portable gasoline generator. It was originally $479.99 and now only $329.99, which is an astounding $150 off. You’ll also get free shipping as always from Costco.

Why do you need a generator?

There are so many reasons why a generator would make your life easier and prepare you for emergencies. Remember the huge ice storm they had in Quebec that knocked out power for days? Remember the blackout of 2003 that made sure many of us didn’t have power? I remember it fondly as I had to break into my house when I couldn’t open my garage with my garage door opener. With our weather and storms getting more and more severe, having a backup generator is almost a must-have.

Besides my doomsdays predictions, there are other reasons a generator is a great tool to have for the ready. If you like camping, they are great to take along with you for an alternate source of power. They are great on a jobsite that might not have power close to where you need to power your tools.

This generator is CSA approved and will run for eight hours on a 50% load with a full tank. It has a low oil shut off sensor and is easy to maintain so you can pass it down to the next generation.

I didn’t really find this generator for sale at stores in Canada, but I did find that Canadian Tire sells it in store and during the last sale they had on, they sold it for $400, which is quite a bit over the sale price that Costco now has it on. I also found a few reviews on Canadian Tire’s site, where it is rated highly with five stars:

We had a power outage and flooded my basement. That night my husband bought this generator and I like it because I can actually start. The pull is easy. Every once in while he askes me to start it so I be ready to use it, since he is gone alot. Thank you, we are pleased with this. 

Besides there, I found it at quite a few stores in the U.S., like Camping World, Home Depot and Walmart.com. None of those stores even came close to Costco’s sale price, which is actually rare, as I usually find the U.S. stores to have the cheaper prices (they just would cost too much to get to us, if they even ship here). I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is a pretty smoking deal.
