Costco Canada: $50 Off Hoover FloorMate Hard Floor Cleaner – Now Just $100 & Free Shipping

Costco Canada: $50 Off Hoover FloorMate Hard Floor Cleaner   Now Just $100 & Free Shipping

Have you ever spilled any wine on the floor? It’s pretty awful and as tempting as it may be to lick it off, grabbing a floor cleaner like the Hoover FloorMate hard floor cleaner is a much more sanitary option. Luckily, it’s currently $50 off at Costco and can be yours for just $99.99 (reg. $148.99). Shipping is free as well.

Every time I shop at Costco, I’m very tempted to get the Hoover TwinTank steam mop. It’s actually currently $26 off at $103.99 (reg. $129.99) but comparing it to the FloorMate is making me think that the latter is a much better choice. Read the rest of this entry »

Costco Canada: Canada’s Wonderland Day Pass Plus Unlimited Drinks Was $46 | Now $36

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 11:35 AM

Costco Canada: Canadas Wonderland Day Pass Plus Unlimited Drinks Was $46 | Now $36

Planning on hitting up Canada’s largest theme park this summer? I know I am! If you are, I’ve found a fabulous deal from Costco that will save you some cash before you go. Regularly $45.99, get your one day pass for ages 3 to 59 for only $36.99, Update – now $35.99, plus you’ll get unlimited pop and I tell you that is worth quite a bit since drinks are not cheap at Canada’s Wonderland! The regular price of this deal beats out what you’ll pay on Canada’s Wonderland’s site, so the discounted price is that much better!

Living in Ontario, I know Canada’s Wonderland very well. I actually used to live a 10 minute drive from it and now it is more like 45 minutes, but we all have season passes since it is such a great way to spend a day. While I don’t really want to blog all the good deals that come out for CW because that means you’ll be making the lines longer, I can’t hold this back from my fellow Moosers.

Your tickets from this deal will come via email, so you can basically buy them the day before or even that day. It says the vouchers will come within an hour, but personally, I would give it a little extra time as you never know.

With this e-ticket, you’ll get admission to pretty much everything at Canada’s Wonderland. They do have a dinosaur exhibit that you have to pay extra, plus a movie, which my kids said is pretty awesome.

On top of all the rides and shows, you’ll get free fountain drinks all day, using a wristband. I usually buy the souvenir cup that is about $16 and I get $0.99 refills, as the regular price of drinks is probably around the $5 mark and can get ridiculously expensive. You don’t have to just get pop, I think they have some fountain juices as well. If you are going on a very hot day, this will be a godsend.

If you look at the Canada’s Wonderland site, you’ll see that the 3 day advance ticket is $40.99 and the at the gate price is $61.99! This means you are saving about half off the gate price. If you decide that morning to go and buy from the CW site, your ticket price is $47.99.

Moosers, what is your favourite ride? Ours is the Ghoster Coaster!

Costco Canada: Sunjoy 75 Litre Stainless Steel Cooler Cart Was $230 | Now $180 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Costco Canada: Sunjoy 75 Litre Stainless Steel Cooler Cart Was $230 | Now $180 & Free Shipping

When I was at Costco last week, I saw this Sunjoy 75.7 litre (80 quart) stainless steel cooler cart and I fell in love. I believe it was actually priced higher in store too! What a perfect thing to have by the pool or on the back deck so you don’t have to have people stomping through your house and going through your stale leftovers to get a drink. Not just practical, this is a showpiece to have on your deck with its sleek stainless steel styling. Regularly $229.99, it is $50 off and selling for $179.99 with free shipping too.

This isn’t just a cooler either. The cart itself has caster wheels, a bottle opener with cap catcher and a towel bar. The bottom shelf allows you to store extra things like more beer. It can be used outside or inside as well as it is rust resistant.

I looked online to find out if this was the best price available and found that it definitely was. While it has a different look, this antique look 80 quart cooler cart sells for $219 at Home Depot. This Outsunny unit from Amazon is made from wicker and not as nice if you ask me and sells for $239. also sells that cooler cart for $289.

Other than those ones, I didn’t really see the SunJoy model except in the U.S., where it does sell for over $200. I also couldn’t find any reviews for this product, but I think it has pretty straightforward usage.

If I bought this cooler cart, I would keep it outside and fill it with freezies and juice boxes for my little ones when they have friends over. It drives me a little nuts when they jump on my trampoline then walk through my house with dirty feet looking for drinks and something to cool off with. I might as well set it up for them in advance. It is worth the money with the savings I’ll get on my time cleaning the floors.

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

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 @

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 @

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 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 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 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 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. 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.
