In-Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes – Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 5:02 PM

In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

No joke, I had been waiting for Huggies wipes to go on sale at Costco for a couple of months now and I’m so happy to see that they’re $6 off again that I’m probably going to buy 5 boxes! Usually priced at $26.49, you can get a box of 1,160 Huggies Natural Care Plus wipes on sale for just $20.49. This offer is only in-stores.

Apparently these wipes went on sale in February but I have to admit that I missed that sale. Last time I saw these wipes get reduced by $6 last summer, if I remember correctly, and at that time, hubby thought I was crazy for getting 6 boxes. Luckily, my hoarding paid off because not only did we not have to worry about getting more wipes for more than half a year but we also saved $36! Every penny counts when you have a baby, especially a newborn. In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Do keep in mind that this offer in-stores only and you need to be a Costco member to take advantage of it. If you’re not a member, then you could always go with someone who is as any member is allowed to bring one non-member guest.

In a fit of desperation for more wipes, I bought that Kirkland Signature Tencel baby wipes that were discounted by $4.50, down to $23.49. Reading reviews online convinced me to get them but even discounted, it wasn’t as good of a deal as the reduced in priced Huggies ones.

Here’s a quick price comparison of the prices for each box:

  • 1,160 Huggies wipes @ $20.49 = $0.018
  • 900 Kirkland wipes @ $23.49 = $0.026 per wipe

So not only are the Huggies boxes a significantly better deal over the Kirkland ones but I also prefer them. The Huggies ones never dried out, while the Kirkland seem to quickly lose their wetness if the bag happens to be left open accidentally. I like that the Kirkland wipes are softer to the touch but since they’re slightly bigger than the Huggies ones, it made me wonder if maybe that was the reason for there being less wipes per box (900 instead of 1,160 or more).

Both brands are great but from a budget standpoint, there really isn’t any arguing with which brand is the most economical one. I believe that most Costco warehouses also currently has Frozen-themed boxes of Huggies wipes, which could be exciting if you have other kids who are currently obsessed with this Disney movie.

Costco Canada: 20% Off de Buyer Heavy Duty Black Steel Fry Pan (8″ or 9.5″) – Now From $29 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 23, 2015 at 9:55 PM

Costco Canada: 20% Off de Buyer Heavy Duty Black Steel Fry Pan (8 or 9.5)   Now From  $29 (EXPIRED)

Mmmm hungry yet? It’s still too cold for barbecuing but you could make hamburgers using a frying pan instead! Luckily, the de Buyer heavy duty black steel fry pan is 20% off at Costco and you can get either the 8″ one for $28.99 (reg. $35.99) or the 9.5″ one for $31.99 (reg. $39.99). Costco also offers free shipping.

All things considered, a 20% discount isn’t that dramatic, however, it’s the fact that this pan is significantly more expensive at other stores that is of important consideration.

At Amazon, the 8″ de Buyer fry pan is listed at $76 by de Buyer themselves. So if we compare to this price to Costco’s current price, then it actually comes up to nearly 62% in savings — can’t argue much with that price comparison!

I love Costco for this exact reason. Even items at seemingly full price are usually less than the prices you would see at other stores. Plus when there are price reductions, you can rest assured that you’re most likely paying significantly less. This isn’t always the case and it’s always price comparing but it does hold true most of the time.

To get back to the de Buyer fry pans, both of these sizes are made from extra thick black steel. de Buyer fry pans are also made in France and the cool part about them is that they feature a “Lyonnaise” profile, which enables the food to easily slide off onto the plate because of a high flared and curved skirt. This is an aspect that I’m particularly intrigued about because food I make tends to slide off onto the table instead of into the plate!

In case you need any more convincing, here’s another review:

I’ve been in the professional kitchen since the 80’s. These pans will not disappoint. They will season over time, and be as non stick as any coated pan, without the chemicals. My kids will have these one day, when I stop cooking….

Costco Canada: Neato Botvac Was $480 | Now $380 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Costco Canada: Neato Botvac Was $480 | Now $380 & Free Shipping

Want the vacuuming done for you? Well, you truly can have your cake and have the mess cleaned up too with the Neato Botvac, on sale at Costco right now. This Neato Botvac 65 pet & allergy robotic vacuum was $479.99 and now only $379.99. Of course, Costco will also give you free shipping too.

With three kids, a dog and two cats, you can imagine what my floors look like. Some days I really feel like giving up and moving into a barn because no matter how much I sweep or vacuum, I can find crumbs, dog hair, dirt, food and much more everywhere. I’m really considering these vacuum so I can just start it after the kids leave for school each day then again after they go to bed. Then, it will be at least clean twice during the day when the kids are not around!

With this robotic vacuum, you can even schedule cleanings. It has an advanced laser guided mapping and navigation system, which means it knows where it has already been and where it will go next. It definitely has that advantage over me already. Even better, you don’t even have to remember to recharge it, it returns to the base itself and recharges! Again, another advantage over me and my kids who don’t know when to go to bed.

You will, however, have to empty the extra-large bin on a regular basis. It can’t do everything, you know.

Looking at price comparisons at other Canadian retailers, Amazon sells this by a secondary seller for $504. I couldn’t really find it elsewhere, but Walmart does have a large selection of Neato robotic vacuums, all selling for more than the price of this vacuum.

There is only one review on Costco’s site, but it is a fairly comprehensive one, giving it five stars out of five. Their only issue was that the filter needed to be replaced often, which I would assume would be typical of any smaller vacuum like this with a small filter that does its job. Luckily, Costco also supplies you with four bonus filters, which should last you about half to a full year.

I have two dogs and fairly large one bedroom apartment. This vacuum quietly (I wasn’t expecting that) cleans the entire apartment on a single charge —with plenty charge left at the end of a cleaning cycle). It also navigates under and around all of my furniture, and manages to climb over low-lying obstacles (like a large rubber bump strip that hides the coaxial cable). It also moves from room to room without difficulty and does the whole apartment on a single charge.

Bargainmoosers, have you tried this vacuum and what are your thoughts? I need a mini robot to do my cleaning!

Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off *BUMP*

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 11:11 AM

Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off *BUMP*

*BUMP! With spring approaching, that can only mean one thing: baby making time. I’ve bumped this awesome deal from Costco for all you baby-makers out there* I feel like everyone around me is pregnant or having babies. My baby days are most likely over, but I found this great deal for all the procreators out there. Costco has Clearblue fertility and pregnancy tests on for $10 off their already competitive prices.

If you are trying to get pregnant, you might want to consider a digital ovulation test. These are hugely helpful for people who might think they know when they ovulate, but don’t really know. I did use an ovulation predictor when I was trying to get pregnant the first time, but luckily for me, I didn’t need it as I got pregnant almost the first month I tried. I know others who aren’t so lucky and this could be a great tool. What it does is detect your LH surge, which is when you ovulate. This means that you are about to ovulate, which translates to getting in the bedroom, stat! I think it is most helpful to use also as data for when around you’ll ovulate each month. This product has fantastic reviews and this one gives me a little tear in my eye:

After many years and many different medical intervention that never resulted in a pregnancy, I decided to try these instead of the other opks I usually purchase, well, low and behold, I got pregnant, after 7 years…. I strongly recomment testing twice a day (AM & PM) this way, chances of missing your surge are minimal :).

There are 20 in the box, which means this will last you quite a while depending on how often you test. Costco’s price is $49.99, with a regular price of $60.99. As for price comparisons, Amazon sells this exact set for $47.99 from a secondary seller. Well.ca sells seven tests for $54.99, which is $7.86 a test compared to Costco’s price of $2.50 a test. That is a huge saving!

Once you’ve done the deed and want to find out if you are pregnant, get yourself a pregnancy test. The Clearblue digital pregnancy test with conception indicator is also on sale, now $38.99 with a regular price of $48.99 for three packs of two tests. This test won’t just tell you if you are pregnant, it will tell you how many weeks you are too. It is a very sensitive test too, which will tell you up to four days early in most cases. If you are anything like me, buying a two-pack (and more) is essential. When I first got pregnant with my oldest, I didn’t really believe it and ran out and bought three more tests. It is also useful if you test a little too early and need to test again, or if you aren’t pregnant this month. Well.ca sells one pack of the two tests for $24.99 and Walmart sells it for $13.77, which still make Costco’s bulk on sale price the best.

Shipping is also free.

Costco Canada: $35 Off Garmin Nuvi GPS – Now $145

Posted by on February 22, 2015 at 9:30 PM

Costco Canada: $35 Off Garmin Nuvi GPS   Now $145

Need a GPS? The Garmin Nuvi 56LMT $35 off at Costco right now. Instead of its usual price of $179.99, you can get it for just $144.99 (+ $2.75 eco fee). Shipping is also free.

Do you get lost a lot? A friend of mine does all the time and for whenever she finally gets her license, I will more than likely get her a GPS and certainly a Garmin one, which is an extremely well-known brand for its accuracy and performance.

Personally, I always use my iPhone as a GPS but given that the use of a cell phone is actually illegal in my province, I would much rather be using an actual GPS device. I’m sure a couple of you Moosers may have a special stand for your phones, which is great, but I’m not a fan of it leaching my data, especially when I don’t have a lot of data to begin with on a monthly basis!

This GPS boasts a 5″ screen, a 480 x 272 resolution and comes pre-loaded with maps for both Canada and the U.S. It also has a battery life of up to two hours, along with a speed limit indicator, a lane assist and most importantly, lifetime map updates, which means that you won’t have to worry about shelling out more money for these.

In terms of a price comparison, the Garmin Nuvi 56LMT GPS is currently being sold for $199.99 at Staples. I also found it for $140 at Amazon.com but unfortunately, it does ship to Canada.

Speaking of which, although there are no reviews for this GPS on either Costco’s or Staples’ sites, on Amazon.com, there are 155 reviews with a total of 4/5 stars — that’s pretty awesome if you ask me! Here’s one such review:

One of the most intuitive GPS I’ve ever used. Accurate positioning. Highly responsive processor for upcoming turns. Voice directions clear and unrobotic. Free lifetime map updates so you don’t get constantly gouged by Garmin. Highly functional trip computer. Appreciated position coordinates and terrain elevation.

And here’s something worth noting:

On the negative side the manual that comes with it is pretty useless. You really have to go to the Garmin site and download the manual. That one is fairly good, but I have still had to figure out several things by trial and error. For example it doesn’t explain how turning on and off power works very well. But it turns out that if it is powered from an outlet that turns off with the ignition, it turns on and off with the ignition, so you never have to touch the power button if it is just used in the car.

Costco Canada: Blendtec Designer Series With Wildside & Mini Twister Jar Was $500 | Now $400 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Costco Canada: Blendtec Designer Series With Wildside & Mini Twister Jar Was $500 | Now $400 & Free Shipping

Costco’s got a fantastic deal on for all of you who have been waiting for the Blendtec blender to go on sale. Save $100 on the Blendtec Designer Series mode with the Wildside and the mini twister jars. Get it for $399, with a regular price of $499 and of course, it will also ship for free.

I did a bit of research on Blendtec before I wrote this deal, making sure this is the best price out there. We’ve previously blogged about Blendtec, but on the professional series and I wanted to know what the difference was between the two. Apparently both blenders perform pretty much the same, but there have been some great changes added to this model that beat out the professional series.

It has 16 custom blending speeds, which beats out the five or ten speeds of the others. It has touch screen controls, which the other series does not have. You can of course blend almost anything in it, including making soup that you can eat right out of the jar as it warms up in the blender!

The twister jar is a nice new feature that Costco sells with this blender and other retailers do not. It lets you blend the thicker recipes like nut butters and baby food and salad dressings. Sometimes you don’t want to wash a large jar just to make a small serving of salad dressing.

This makes a fabulous Valentine’s gift for the love of your life as you might not splurge on this for yourself, but you would for the person who has always stuck by your side. Plus, you get to take advantage of what they make as well.

Shopping around, Best Buy also has this blender on for $100 off, but they don’t include the mini twister jar. Future Shop is the same. Those are the cheapest prices I’ve seen it, as there are some smaller health stores selling it for upwards of $500. This mini twister jar sells for $129.99, which makes this deal at Costco far superior over the prices at Best Buy and Future Shop.

This very recent review sums it up nicely:

I researched high end blenders for 7 years before finally deciding on the Blendtec Designer model. I tried both this and the Vitamix. I love the pre-set program cycles which I use most of the time. They work great for me, as I startle easily at loud noises and would probably not be able to hold button down long enough to do a good job…this way I just press the button and let the machine grind away! This deal for $399 with the twister jar is the best price I have ever seen and is $80 less than what I paid for the blender alone last year. The wildside jar is sold for $120-$150, so really this is like getting $220-$250 off regular price!

Make Your Own Wine With The Argentia Ridge Peach Chardonnay Wine Kit @ Costco Canada – Just $1.63 Per Bottle

Posted by on January 21, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Make Your Own Wine With The Argentia Ridge Peach Chardonnay Wine Kit @ Costco Canada   Just $1.63 Per Bottle

Want to try your hand at making your own wine? Costco has a fantastic deal on the Argentia Ridge Argentia Breeze peach Chardonnay wine kit. It’s currently on sale for just $48.99 (reg. $59.99) and makes 30 bottles of wine!

An $11 discount on the original price may not seem like much but even at its original price, this kit is a great deal. Depending on the wine you get, a bottle of wine typically retails for $10 or more and if we look at the discounted price in relation to the amount of bottles it makes (30), then each bottle ends up costing just $1.63 — wow!

Needless to say the bottles aren’t included but once you purchase these from elsewhere, then you will be able to reuse them the next time that you make wine. Either that or you could also upcycle the bottles after you have finished the wine.

However, you won’t have to worry about having to buy any corks or shrink caps as the kit comes with these. All in all, the kit includes:

  • grape juice concentrate
  • fruit flavour pack
  • additive pack (1 set)
  • 30 corks
  • 30 shrink caps
  • 30 wine labels

You won’t find reviews once you click on the link above but I did find a couple of reviews on an older page of Costco’s that you can view here. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about this wine kit:

I purchased this kit because I liked the peach chardonnay from another line and this one was a better deal as it includes the labels and corks. Once bottled we opened the last bottle of the other line and one of these ones and did a taste test. This one was preferred by 4 of the 5! I purchased the first kit the middle of May and my second the middle of June! I see many more in the future

… and here’s another review:

The wines from Argentia Ridge are very nice. This peach chardonnay was liked by all who tried it. But where this product really shines is the company behind it. Argentia Ridge offers amazing customer service. If you contact them with any questions or have an issue with your kit, they get back to you and address your questions and/or concerns.

That last review is particularly reassuring, especially if you have never made wine before. In any case, Argentia Ridge also offers wine making instructions on their site.

Costco Canada: $20 Off HappyLight Liberty Energy Lamp Now $80 *BUMP*

Costco Canada: $20 Off HappyLight Liberty Energy Lamp Now $80 *BUMP*

*Bumping this for all of us sad about this cold weather since it is on sale again!* Daylight is getting shorter each evening as it gets later into the season. Fight the winter blues with a HappyLight Liberty Energy Lamp from Costco Canada for just $79.99, originally $99.99. That price includes shipping and handling as well as a replacement bulb.

I price compared this lamp with a few other places to make sure you are getting the best deal. Here is what I found at the competitors:

  • $99.95 @ Amazon Canada (OOS)
  • $119.96 @ SAD Therapy Lamps Canada
  • $129.99 @ Bed Bath & Beyond Canada

Costco’s offer is even better as the other offers do not mention a replacement bulb included in the offer. Bulbs of this size and specialty can be rather expensive, so you are certainly getting a good deal.

What this lamp does:

Essentially, the lamp gives 10,000 LUX of light output at 14” from the lamp. You have the ability to control the intensity and to change lenses for high intensity or low glare. The Liberty Energy lamp provides light therapy.

Light therapy can be used for many purposes. Frequent travelers who suffer from jet lag can use it to readjust their body to a new time zone faster. People who work shift-work often find light therapy allows them to adjust to coming off and going on different shifts – making the transition less stressful on the body. A friend of mine just started working night shift, she found forcing her body to stay away at night and sleep during the day was quite difficult. A lamp like this during the night and blackout curtains during the day could help her body adjust easier.

Perhaps the most well known use for these lamps is to treat seasonal affective disorder – SAD for short. It is the body’s reaction to reduced light intake during the winter. Often the body becomes horribly short on vitamin D (so take a good supplement) and people who suffer from the disorder feel lethargic, extremely sad, and have difficulty being productive or living a normal life during the winter months. Lamps like these treat the disorder by mimicking sunlight unlike normal bulbs.
A friend of mine suffers from SAD and one of these lamps has really helped her survive living on the West Coast. I have considered buying one since moving here as well.

With the replacement bulb, and all shipping and handling charges included, you will be set up for quite a long time. I think this is a good offer.

Costco: Omron Fat Loss Monitor Was $30 | Now $23 & Free Shipping

Costco: Omron Fat Loss Monitor Was $30 | Now $23 & Free Shipping

 

The top resolution of every New Year is to get in shape and lose weight. Well, my New Year’s resolution is a bit different: it is to not have weight loss as a resolution next year. That means I have some work to do! This Omrom Fat loss Monitor is a great little device to help me keep on track. Originally $29.99, the Omrom monitor is on sale for $22.99 with free shipping.

When I price compared this unit with other stores, my research revealed that many companies had this monitor on sale. London Drugs lists the Omron for $39.99 retail, and they have it on sale for $24.99 in store only. Well.ca has the same Omron Fat Loss Monitor, which they call a Body Fat Analyzer, priced at $34.99. Only Amazon.ca matches Costco’s price at $22.99 (was $36.40) but you are below Amazon’s free shipping minimum. The best deal is still through Costco.

This device measures your body fat percentage and body mass. You may wonder why you would want this device rather than a scale. Well, a scale can only measure weight. Muscle, fat, bone, vitals, etc. are all weight. When you lose weight, you want to lose fat – not muscle. Body fat is a better indicator of overall health than your weight. Drop your fixation with the scale and embrace a healthier you.

The machine accommodates up to nine personal profiles for your entire family (and a few friends) to use the device. In addition, an athletic mode will provide results that are more accurate for athletes. The reviews I have read on this device are overwhelmingly positive:

Does what it says. I’m finding it’s on par with callipers as far as accuracy goes. Follow the instructions and be mindful of your daily fluctuations in hydration. This tool will give you a good idea whether or not you’re on the right path.

and…

I have used this product in the past prior to making the purchase. It provides me with reliable data when accessing my clients. I must say that the data is not as accurate as the floor models that requires a bare feet reading with an electronic read-out. Nevertheless, I am pleased with my purchase.

This is the perfect little device if you are working on a healthier you this coming year.

Costco Canada: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline – $275 (Save $75)

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 8:45 AM

Costco Canada: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline   $275 (Save $75)

*BUMP! This trampoline is again on sale, this time $5 cheaper, so take advantage while you can!* I love trampolines! When I was a kid, it was like my life goal to have a trampoline in my backyard but renting an apartment has never been conducive to that dream. However, I could always get one for inside. Costco Canada is selling the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline 350i for only $274.99, saving you $75.

I did a little price comparing: little because there are not a lot of places in Canada that offer this adorable little trampoline. A secondary retailer on Amazon.ca is selling the exact model for $540.99 + $12.40 shipping (ouch!). More reasonably priced is the actual manufacturer. JumpSport themselves sells the Fitness Trampoline 350 for $349.99.

The trampoline measures 32.5″ jumping surface and can hold up to 250 lbs. It has a 16 gauge steel frame and comes with a handle bar for a greater variety of exercises. Included in your kit is 4-in-1 workout DVD to help you utilize your new trampoline to its fullest.

I am also sure that when you are not shedding some extra pounds on it, your kids will love to just bounce away to their little heart’s content. So it really is a workout machine and a toy all in one.

Shipping and handling charges are included in the cost.

Costco Canada: $100 iTunes Cards Multipack For Just $85 (LAST DAY!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 4, 2015 at 5:15 PM

Costco Canada: $100 iTunes Cards Multipack For Just $85 (LAST DAY!) (EXPIRED)

Get the most bang for your buck with a $100 multipack of iTunes cards for just $84.99 at Costco instead of their usual price of $94.99. It comes with 4 cards with $25 pre-loaded on each. Quick, this offer expires at midnight tonight but I couldn’t pass up on telling you about because it’s pretty awesome!

Would it be too eager to purchase this multipack in anticipation of upcoming birthdays, events and perhaps even next Christmas? I’m somewhat kidding about the next Christmas part but any opportunity at saving money is one that I don’t typically miss out on, so it’s very tempting! Even though she can’t even walk yet, I recently bought my little one a play kitchen because it was on sale… but that’s a whole other story!

As I already mentioned above, this multipack includes 4 iTunes gift card with $25 on each, which is particularly ideal for giving as a gift.

In the past, we have occasionally blogged about discounts on iTunes multipack gift cards but these were almost always in-stores only and none of them were as high of a discount as this one. So the fact that you don’t even need to leave your house to take advantage of this deal is pretty great.

Needless to say, these gift cards may only be used with the Canadian version of iTunes, but rest assured that it can be used on either Mac or Windows systems.

Interestingly enough, there’s one review for these cards and it’s a 5/5 star one. I was a little perplexed as to why someone would leave a review on a set of iTunes gift card but it made sense once I read it:

I bought this for a gift and I received cards within a few days. Great value

This brings me to my next point: free shipping. Costco offers free shipping on nearly everything and you won’t have to worry about extra fees with purchase of these cards. Costco is very reliable in the shipping department as well, although the only delay you could expect to get is with regards to Canada Post given the icy storm that is currently hitting us canucks country-wide.

Costco Canada Last Minute Gift Ideas To Print @ Home

Costco Canada Last Minute Gift Ideas To Print @ Home

If you love Costco like I love Costco, you’ll know that they have a huge gift card section, with gift cards from every genre at very discounted prices. Did you know you can also get them online and print them right at home or send them over email to your gift recipient. These make the perfect last minute gifts, as you simply go on and buy and get your gifts!

Costco has gift cards for spas, restaurants, attractions, activities and so much more. We’ve blogged about a few of these before, like the Cineplex movie packages. These are all print at home or e-vouchers. You can get your child an adventure five pack, which is $49.99 and includes five child admissions, five popcorn trays, five drinks and five treats. That is a substantial savings and gives them something to do over the long winter ahead.

If you are looking for spa gift certificates to give, there are lots of choices. You can choose between Spa Utopia and salon e-certificates where you’ll get two $200 certificates for only $319. Or you can get two $50 gift certificates with a bonus $10 gift card for only $79.99 for Spafinder Wellness 365. WaySpa gift cards are also very nice and I can vouch for this myself and you’ll get two $50 gift cards for $79.99.

If you’ve got a child to buy for, this new certificate deal on Costco is on the Build-a-Bear workshop e-certificates. You can get two $50 gift cards for only $79.99. This gives you something to do over the break. Fun, fun!

There are also a lot of escape vouchers, for all over the world if you are travelling and some at home if you are staying in Canada. They have everything from Fallsview indoor waterpark to Ski Mont Habitant to Legoland Florida.

Citypasses are also the way to go if you are traveling to a new city and those are all on discount at Costco.

Getaways are always my favourite gifts and this BedandBreakfast.com gift e-certificate is only $87.99 for a $100 gift certificate.

Bargainmoosers, how many of you are late on the draw and going to purchase some of these deals from Costco? Let me know in the comments below!

Costco Canada 2014 Boxing Week Event Now On!

Costco Canada 2014 Boxing Week Event Now On!

One of my favourite stores to shop at both in-store and online has started Boxing Week. Costco has some hot deals ready to go, to get your Boxing Day shop on now!

Costco doesn’t seem to make a big show out of it, but they have a number of varied items on sale for Boxing Week on their site. I’d say these are probably better than the warehouse deals and you get to avoid the massive crowds that you know pile up at Costco. With free shipping included, you can’t lose.

You may have gotten or are giving electronics for Christmas this year. HDMI cables are something every home needs a few extra of. Coscto has a number of packages on sale for Boxing Week, like these WireLogic Sapphire 3ft high speed HDMI cables in a 2-pack, that were $24.99, now $19.99.

A camera may also have been on your wishlist and now you’re thinking you need a bag. This National Geographic explorer DSLR sling camera bag is $10 off, with a sale price of $29.99.

Your dinnerware may have gotten broken over the holidays for either too much or too much family time and Costco has a number of sets discounted, including this Beads white round 32-piece dinnerware set, that was $89.99, now $69.99.

If you’ve got some weddings to attend this spring, cookware is always a great gift to give. This Paderno 5-pc Copperline cookware set is a hot buy. I don’t have a regular price, but the 11pc set sells for around $200. This one is $79.99.

The BellaLite by Silk’n hair removal system is a whopping $55 off, now $144.99 and something you may want to use your Christmas money to purchase. Get smooth legs and other underthings by summer.

If you need some barstools for your home, Costco has a number of sets on sale for $40 and $50 off, like these Byrd brown bonded leather swivel barstools, now $169.99, with a regular price of $219.99.

No one says that KitchenAid has to be the be all, end all. Sunbeam is a power brand and with a stand mixer for only $174.99, this is one you can afford. It comes with a meat grinder and other fun tools as well.

January is the time most people want to start being healthy again after all the holiday indulgences. A juicer might help and this one has masticating technology so you can actually juice wheatgrass. The Kuvings upright slow juicer is a steal at $289.99, with a regular price of $369.99.

You’ll want to check out all the hot items for yourself, as I may have missed something that’s on your wishlist. To get the latest deals always up to date, check the dashboard, as new items could be added daily.

Costco Canada: Conair Curl Secret + Travel Hair Dryer & Straightener – Just $100 (+ Free Shipping)

Posted by on December 17, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Costco Canada: Conair Curl Secret + Travel Hair Dryer & Straightener   Just $100 (+ Free Shipping)

Save time curling your hair with the Conair Curl Secret. It’s currently $99.99 at Costco and comes with the following two bonus items: a travel dryer and a travel straightener. As usual, shipping at Costco is also absolutely free of charge.

The Conair Curl Secret features a tourmaline ceramic coated barrel with 2 PTC switches and 2 slide switches. It also has two heat settings and 3 timers. The timers are for how curly you want your hair: the longer you keep a strand in, the curlier it will be. Plus, it only takes 30 seconds for it to heat up, which means that you can plug it in and start using it practically right away without having to wait too long.

As I already mentioned, it also comes with a compact folding handle dryer and a mini ceramic straightener. Both of these would be absolutely perfect for taking on a trip or perhaps even using it on occasion at home.

Hands down, this is one of the best Christmas presents you can get a woman or girl right now. It’s a major time saver and best of all is that hair comes out looking amazing in just a matter of seconds. Although I don’t own one yet, I had the pleasure of trying one recently and I was very surprised at how curly my hair turned out. My hair doesn’t usually curl at all and yet within ten seconds, the strand I had inserted came out in a perfect curl. Certainly not a messy curl as in the picture above but if you wanted to, you could achieve that effect as well by teasing your hair after curling it.

Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I love the Conair Curl Secret. I have medium length naturally wavy hair. It takes me about 15 minutes to curl my hair as I just curl the bottoms. The second day, I just need to touch up a few curls and by the third day, I have a beautiful full pony tail. You do not need to use ANY hair product at all (although I use just a tiny bit of curl serum). Loved it so much, many of my friends have bought it too and been super happy.

Everywhere else, the Conair Curl Secret is roughly $90 and doesn’t come with the 2 freebies that Costco’s bundle comes with. In fact, it’s such a hot Christmas gift that it’s already completely sold out at both Best Buy and Future Shop, but considering that you get the 2 freebies for a total of $99, Costco’s deal is definitely a much better one anyways.
