Costco Canada: $20 Off Rocket Multi-Function Sport Dryer – Now $80 (Was $100)

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Costco Canada: $20 Off Rocket Multi Function Sport Dryer   Now $80 (Was $100)

For any sports fan or for anyone with one in the family, Costco currently has a great deal on the Rocket multi-function sport dryer: it’s now $20 off at just $79.99 (reg. $99.99).

There is no hiding behind the fact that as Canucks, we love hockey. It’s simply ingrained into our multicultural spirits and there is no way around it! This being said, I’m sure that many of you moosers either play hockey yourself, have a little one signed up in a league or maybe have a hubby who plays regularly.

My hubby is the kind of hockey fan that lives and breathes hockey: stats and scores are the first things he checks in the morning and the last thing he looks at in the evening as well. Not only that but he also plays regularly in a league and let me tell ya, once he comes back home from a game, boy does his equipment ever stink.

Just the other day, we were in the car together after his game and it was so bad that I was forced to strategically place my scarf over my nose and even then, I was practically passing out from the noxious fumes emanating from his body. What made it worse is that once we finally got home, he opened his bag in the middle of the living room and the stench remained for far too long.

All this to say that this Rocket multi-function sport dryer is actually something I, myself, would consider getting, especially since it’s currently on sale. The way it works is that after equipment is hung up, the rack is then closed off  and it uses a combination of heat (70°C) and vented air to dry everything in an hour or less.

At the same time though, this is the kind of rack that wouldn’t just be handy for hockey enthusiasts as it could definitely be used in various other sports like football, lacrosse etc.

As usual, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping!

Costco Canada: $27 Off KidKraft Savannah Dollhouse – Now $120 (Was $147)

Posted by on March 25, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Costco Canada: $27 Off KidKraft Savannah Dollhouse   Now $120 (Was $147)

Looking for a unique gift to keep your kid entertained? Then here’s a pretty sweet deal from Costco Canada: the KidKraft Savannah dollhouse has been reduced by $27 and can be had for just $119.99 (reg. $146.99).

Just the picture alone is making me want the dollhouse for myself, ahem, I mean for whenever my daughter is old enough to play with it, but what makes it even more awesome is the fact that this 8-room dollhouse is made of wood, has 4 floors and comes with as many as 14 furniture pieces.

Although both Amazon.ca and Best Buy have this same dollhouse for $145.98, Toys R Us actually has it for as high as $229.99!

Plus, according to the following Toys R Us reviewer, it’s super easy to assemble as well, though you may have to allocate about an hour to its assembly:

I bought this Doll House for my daughter’s 3rd Birthday and it was a hit! My other daughter who was one at the time really loved it too. It’s beautiful and very sturdy. We’ve had it for a year now and it still looks like new. I’ve read other reviews saying that it was hard to assemble…seriously!? Maybe it was written by a man! Believe me, it’s not hard! I did it on my own and if you follow the instruction it’s really easy. Of course you have to assemble it before you give it to your daughter because it does takes about one hour to assemble if your alone. I have no complaints, we all love it and it looks great!

As usual, shipping is also absolutely free!

Costco Canada: $20 Off Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop – Now $110 (Was $130)

Posted by on March 23, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Costco Canada: $20 Off Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop   Now $110 (Was $130)

Just in time for spring cleaning, ditch your icky old-fashioned mop and invest instead in the Hoover TwinTank steam mop, which is currently on sale for $109.99 (reg. $129.99) at Costco Canada.

To be honest, I never mop. I don’t even vacuum… luckily, hubby takes care of the floors but we keep encountering the same problem: our mops just don’t last very long. At first, we had one of those old-fashioned mop heads but that just didn’t seem to be doing a very good job at all and the floors would take ages to dry, so we switched to one of those mops with a cloth at the end and a product spritzer, but that broke faster than our floors took to dry.

The only mop we have had any success with is the Vileda but… yep, you guessed it, that one broke a couple of months later and we (or should I say, my hubby) liked it so much that we bought the exact same one all over again. Ever since then though, we have been contemplating investing into a more expensive mop and the Hoover TwinTank falls right within our budget and what we want in a mop, which I’m sure is on par with everyone’s expectations! We want a mop that will leave our floors clean and that won’t take forever to dry — with two cats running around, that last one is definitely a must.

This is exactly why we will more than likely be getting the Hoover TwinTank, especially since the best part about it that it cleans by steaming surfaces, which means that it also kills most harmful bacteria that may have laid camp, most notably in the kitchen (i.e., salmonella, MRSA or even staph).

This same mop is actually as high as $139.99 at Home Depot but the best part about Costco’s deal, other than the price of course, is that it also comes with the following extras: 2 bottles of Hoover 2x SteamPlus cleaning solutions, 5 microfiber pads, a cooling tray and a carpet glider.

As usual, shipping is also absolutely free at Costco!

What kind of mop do you use? Would you consider a steam mop?

Costco Canada: $20 Off PetDek – Now $90 (Was $110)

Posted by on March 17, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: $20 Off PetDek   Now $90 (Was $110)

Do you have a dog or do you often haul stuff in your backseat? Then have a look at the PetDek, especially since Costco currently has a great deal on it. For a limited time, you can save $20 on the PetDek and get it for just $89.99 instead of $109.99.

Dubbed the “A Car Space Pet Place”, the PetDek converts the backseat of any car into a more functional space for either dogs or the transportation of items, such as those pictured on the banner above.

Even at full price, Costco’s price on the PetDek is still much better than its competitors considering both Amazon.com and PetDek‘s own site sells it for $129.95, though the former lists its regular price at $175.43. In fact, here’s what one reviewer had to say about this handy product on Amazon:

I really like my PetDek. It works just as it was stated. very easy to put in and remove. Really saves my leather seats and provides a stable place for my dogs to ride. I have found it handy to have in the back seat during the garden season hauling plants and soil. It does not work in the back of my husbands truck though. He is a tall man and has to have his seat back all the way. That doesn’t allow for the PetDek. Wish it was somehow adjustable for seat width.

For anyone considering this product, I would definitely recommend taking a look at PetDek’s list of advantages. One of the advantages listed is that it can be used in miscellaneous ways, such as for the transportation of baked goods, and I have to admit that I didn’t even think of that but for anyone who bakes or even cooks a lot in their spare time for family gatherings, this would definitely be a great investment! Heck, I could even see myself using this to bring groceries from Costco home since those boxes they provide tend to be too large for my car’s small trunk. Plus, once you’re done with the PetDek, it can easily be folded and stored away.

Shipping is also absolutely free.

Costco Canada Promo Codes: Free $20 WaySpa or Bon Appetit e-card With Sign-Up

Costco Canada Promo Codes: Free $20 WaySpa or Bon Appetit e card With Sign Up

Sign up online for a new Costco membership, using the promo codes below and you’ll get either a free $20 WaySpa gift certificate or a $20 Bon Appetit e-card.

Click here to sign up @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: EXEC69
  • Discount: $20 gift card with executive membership
  • Coupon Code: GSWEB99
  • Discount: $20 gift card with gold star membership
  • Expiry: 20th April 2014

This deal ticks me off just a little. I just signed up for a membership this week after not having one for a few years. My purpose was to purchase some waterpark passes, which were basically 50% off what you pay at the door. Unfortunately, after signing up, I didn’t have enough in my bank to cover the passes until after payday, so I was going to pick up the passes on the way to the waterpark. Unfortunately again, once I got close to Niagara, they didn’t have the passes at that location (as they say it was only a deal for the other regions to promote coming to Niagara). I could have went online and bought them and then printed them at my hotel’s business centre, but decided to just pay the full price. Anyway, since I still haven’t bought anything with my membership, I’m going to see if I can still score the free gift cards since no one told me about the promotion when I got my membership.

The moral of my story is that you – the Mooser – can take part in this deal, as it is actually a really good one. When I was looking through Costco, I remembered how much I loved shopping there and how much cheaper the prices are there than other places. I used to have an executive membership, which is $110 and gives you back 2% of all your purchases. I always paid for my membership within the year. If you didn’t want to spend $110, you could get the gold star, which is $55.

People often ask me if it is worth it to pay for a membership and really, that all depends on how much you shop and how good your willpower is. Costco is notorious for people over-shopping, including myself, so if you can go, get what you need, use what you bought and you shop often, then it is definitely a deal. If you stop in the middle aisles and buy clothing you don’t need (because it really is a great price) or some small appliance you won’t use, then stop yourself now. Buying items online is really great because they offer free shipping on everything!

We have all the Costco coupons and deals in the forum.

Costco Canada: $40 Off Levana Ovia Digital Video Baby Monitor – Now $210

Posted by on March 9, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Costco Canada: $40 Off Levana Ovia Digital Video Baby Monitor   Now $210If you’re expecting or already have a baby, then you’re definitely going to want a baby monitor and luckily, Costco has a pretty sweet deal on the Levana Ovia digital video baby monitor. Originally priced at $249.99, it’s now down to just $209.99.

On top of plenty of other cool features, it allows you to talk to your baby with the Talk to Baby two-way communication, 3 lullabies controlled via remote control, etc. In fact, out of many other positive reviews, here’s what one reviewer had to say about it on Amazon:

“I was extremely pleased with the Levana Ovia Baby Video Monitor, the camera is exceptional and the control for pan/tilt is superior to other cameras. We were first time parents and the microphone allowed us to hear every breath (which was calming and helped us sleep). The ability to link in other cameras is a plus, and the music that it can play offers any newborn the comfort to fall and stay asleep. The only minor downside was that it came with no instructions(?), so we had to navigate through the menu a few times to figure out things such as volume control (I suppose I could have hit up google, but that’s the modern version of reading the instructions, and I am a stereotypical man!). Overall good product and a good buy if bought at a fair price.”

Although this same baby monitor is $190.75 on Amazon.ca and $179.99 at Future Shop, the great part about Costco’s offer is that on top of a baby video monitor and a camera, it comes with an extra camera, both of which include night vision and can be easily manoeuvred to face different directions. Note that different provinces have different prices for this item, but they are only a few dollars different.

As usual, it’s also available for free shipping.

Costco Canada: $110 Off Oreck DualMax Air Purifier – Now Just $290 (Reg. $400)

Posted by on February 28, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Costco Canada: $110 Off Oreck DualMax Air Purifier   Now Just $290 (Reg. $400)

With winter almost over, we will be entering spring season and if you have allergies, then prevention is definitely key! During a couple of days only, you can save $110 off the Oreck DualMax air purifier at Costco Canada. Regularly priced at $399.99, you can get it for just $289.99.

With 3 fans that work to absorb dirt and air impurities, this purifier is particularly great for anyone suffering from allergies. In fact, here’s what one reviewer had to say about it on Amazon’s site:

5 stars because its beautiful and easy to plug in. My allergies are gone and boy does this thing suck the dirt out of the air. You can tell that even the tiniest particles are being filtered out. Works IF* you don’t have an arc protector circuit in your bedroom. The ALCI interrupter will have to be bypassed with a surge protector strip, which is what I did and it works fine. Low speed it is quiet. High speed, it is LOUD. Will update how my allergies and 4 am sneezing reacts to this puppy being in the room. Love the fact that the filter is permanent, and has such a large cleaning surface area on the cell.

**** Been a few days now. My sneezing at 5 am is gone!!! It was back last night, when I realized my bedroom door was completely open, and closed it… perfect. My sinuses open up every time I’m in my room, and I cannot recommend this more. So glad I chose this over replaceable filter ones. So easy to clean. Simple to put back.

A quick price comparison also showed that Costco’s deal is definitely the best out there right now since Oreck‘s own site is selling it for $399.99, The Shopping Channel has it for as high as $499.99 and Amazon is selling it for the lowest price of the bunch at $319.99 (but even then it’s still $30 more expensive than Costco’s offer).

As usual, shipping and handling is also absolutely free.

Costco Canada: Asus 8″ Memo Pad 16GB Tablet Just $199 (Was $239)

Posted by on February 23, 2014 at 11:30 PM

Costco Canada: Asus 8 Memo Pad 16GB Tablet Just $199 (Was $239)

Have you been shopping around for a convenient little tablet? Costco Canada currently has the Asus 8″ Memo Pad 16GB tablet for just $198.99.

Available in either white, grey or pink, this 8″ tablet actually packs quite the punch with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 1GB ram and a 16GB hard drive that can be upgraded to 64GB.

As for a quick price comparison, Costco’s offer is definitely the cheapest, with Amazon.ca selling this same Asus tablet for $239.96 and Staples listing it at $239.99. Out of all the stores that I searched for this tablet, Best Buy seems to be offering it at the highest price: $241.64. One reviewer did, however, note the following:

If you are looking for a great android tablet and don’t want to shell out for the higher priced screen this is it. It has 95% of the functionality and performance of a higher priced alternative. We downloaded some HD games and didn’t really see any real performance/screen differences that would have justified a $200-$300 additional price hit. And Asus once again ( I also own a Asus Transformer Pad 300T) has done well with having some additional apps installed but not overdoing it. Battery life is excellent. It’s light and the 8″ screen is a great go between size. Highly recommended.

On top of offering a better deal than its competitors, another advantage of getting it with Costco is that it will also ship for free.

Costco Canada: $80 Off Samsonite Gravtec 3-Piece Spinner Luggage Set – Now Just $290 (Was $370)

Costco Canada: $80 Off Samsonite Gravtec 3 Piece Spinner Luggage Set   Now Just $290 (Was $370)

Costco Canada has a great deal right now on a 3-piece Samsonite Gravtec Spinner luggage set. It’s down by $80 from its original price of $369.99 and can be purchased for just $289.99.

If you’re planning on travelling for spring break of you’re planning any other trip, then a good set of luggage is absolutely essential. This Samsoninte one, which is available in either silver or gold, is light and has been designed to withstand shock (i.e. while being thrown around at the airport). And although it features a TSA combination lock, do make sure to search YouTube for helpful videos on how to secure your belongings, such as with the use of a cable wire because even with a lock, luggage can be accessed quite easily through the zipper.

Here is what one reviewer had to say about it:

Shipping was extremely fast. Good value for money. A minor issue with the Samsonite badge coming off on one of the pieces, but with Costco’s return policy that is not a problem. I will return the original purchase and reorder the same product.

This same luggage set is actually as high as $600 at Staples and is out of stock at the moment. Plus, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping on this great set.

Costco Canada: $30 Off Anika Dresser Top Jewellery Box – Now $69

Posted by on February 9, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Costco Canada: $30 Off Anika Dresser Top Jewellery Box   Now $69

It’s kind of funny seeing this jewellery box on special no later than a month after buying it for a friend on her birthday, and yet, here it is, bigger and cheaper! For a limited time, you can save $30 on this fabulous Anika dresser top armoire and get it for just $69.99 at Costco Canada instead of its regular price of $99.99.

With a java finish, this lovely jewellery box features a total of 5 drawers (3 small and 2 large), along with compartments on either side of it for necklaces and a lift top lid with a mirror. The top portion also has built-in padding for rings and overall, the entire jewellery box is made with a soft beige lining to keep your jewellery scratch free.

To give you an idea of the awesomeness of this deal, I searched around Sears for a jewellery box and those that I found simply did not compare in size and price to the Anika. Take for instance, the Traditional 3-drawer clear-top one: while it’s certainly elegant, it’s not nearly as spacious and is actually much more expensive ($39.99). Along the same lines, there is also the Traditional 2-drawer lift-top box but again, it’s much smaller and more expensive, at $79.99.

I have to admit that although I just bought a smaller version of this jewellery box for a friend, I most likely will be taking advantage of this deal for myself because it’s just too good to pass up — assuming you have the counter space to put it on! But rest assured that even then, it doesn’t require all that much room. Not to mention the fact that this would make for an awesome Valentine’s Day present as well!

Plus, shipping and handling fees are free, so you get what you pay for with no hidden fees!

Costco Canada: Hoover Zen Whisper Canister $199 (Save $100)

Pick up the Hoover Zen Whisper Canister vacuum at Costco Canada for only $199.99 (originally $299.99) including shipping.

I price compared with Amazon Canada which has this vacuum on sale from $349 down to $249.99. I then also price compared with Sears Canada which has the vacuum on sale from $349.99 down to $299.99 and does not include free shipping. Costco’s price is certainly the better price point for the Hoover Zen.

Some of the vacuum’s features include:

  • Multi-Cyclonic Technology
  • Auto Cord Rewind
  • 6.5-Foot Hose And Extendable Wand
  • Large Capacity Bottom-Empty Dirt Cup
  • Limited Three Year Warranty

On Costco’s website there is only one review for a full 5/5 stars. They said:

We have 2 dogs does a great job. its quiet and light

There are four reviews on Amazon and all of them give the vacuum either a four or five star review. Hoover is certainly known for their vacuum cleaners and this one appears to be a great model of their efficiency. I really like the retractable cord feature as I hate winding the cord back in and the large capacity dirt cup is a bonus too. Even with just one cat, when I had carpet throughout the house I often had to empty the canister on my mini-Dyson three or four times in a single vacuuming.

Costco Canada: 6 Month Deezer Subscription to Music Streaming For $28

Costco Canada: 6 Month Deezer Subscription to Music Streaming For $28

Do you download all your music? Then stop it. Stop it right this second and subscribe to Deezer instead for six months for just $27.99 ($4.67 per month).

By downloading all your music, not only do you risk getting slammed with a hefty piracy fine but your computer could also get heavily infected with viruses. Not to mention the fact that with torrent sites dropping like flies lately, its getting much harder to quickly find and download music and videos in general.

Although I have never tried Deezer’s music on demand service, I most likely will be taking advantage of Costco’s deal on it myself because Deezer’s own subscription plans are more expensive. Since Costco’s deal includes both web and mobile access, it equates to Deezer’s Premium+ plan, which is $9.99 per month. And really when you think about it, paying less than $5 for unlimited access to more than 30 millions song is hardly anything… especially since even coffee can be more expensive than that at certain coffee shops!

If you’re still not convinced, then consider this: Deezer actually has a pretty large following on Facebook (over two million likes) and Twitter (over 50,000 followers), so they must be doing something right… right?

Once purchased, you will immediately be e-mailed a download code to redeem at Deezer’s official website.

Have you ever tried Deezer or any other music streaming service? What are your thoughts on them?

Costco Canada: TurboTax Only $29 & Free Shipping

Costco Canada: TurboTax Only $29 & Free Shipping

TurboTax Standard for 2013 is on sale, the cheapest I could find it, at Costco for only $28.99, was $38.99. It will also ship to you free and the best part is that you don’t have to be a Costco member to get this item!

Don’t give your heard-earned tax refund to H&R Block or an accountant. If you have simple taxes, do them yourself! Even if they aren’t that simple, TurboTax software walks you through it. Trust me, I am not great with numbers, which is why I got into writing – no numbers involved – and I do my own taxes. I even have my own home-based business and my husband has complicated business expenses to figure out, but I find it easy with this software and if I can’t figure something out I can call their help desk via phone or live chat or the CRA. They even have a 100% accurate calculation and maximum refund guarantee, which means that if you figure out a higher tax refund elsewhere, they will give you back the cost of the software.

The standard edition is best for individuals, couples or families claiming standard deductions. This format is the CD format and it must be activated before use. If you were looking for a downloadable version, we do have an exclusive coupon code for 12% off, but that price will be higher than the one you see here.

Costco Canada: BlendTec Total Blender with WideSide and FourSide Jar for Only $380 (Save $80)

Get a BlendTec for only $379.99 from Costco!

This is a weird deal. Most of the time you see the before price being a lot higher than it actually sells for. The item costs $100 but when it’s on sale, they say it’s $130 before just so the deal looks better. In this case, it looks like Costco’s before price is legit because the before price is even lower than most other places are currently selling this for.

If you’re like me, $379.99 for a blender (even if it is $80 off the original $459.99) is kind of nuts. My blender cost, I dunno, $30? Maybe $40. I don’t know. Whatever it is, it definitely isn’t an almost $400 blender. But there are a lot of you out there for whom a blender of this caliber and quality is a no brainer. For you people, well, you’ve probably already clicked through, bought this and aren’t even reading anymore.

For the people who are on the fence, just check out the BlendTec YouTube page, specifically the “Will It Blend?” videos. You ever want to see a blender take down a pool cue, marbles, three tablets or Christmas? This is you chance.

Shipping is always free from Costco.

Costco Canada: 26% Off iComfort Fitness Vibration Plate   Now $399.99

Looking to get fit? Then take advantage of Costco’s deal on an iComfort Fitness Vibration Plate now on sale for $399.99 instead of $539.99 (26% off).

I have to admit that the first thought that popped into my head upon seeing iComfort’s fitness vibration plate is: “oh no, not another get fit quickly and easily scheme” but as it turns out, this provides a real workout and you still need to eat right and actually put some effort into the work-out because, as mentioned in this YouTube video about it: “if it’s too easy, then you’re probably not doing it right.”

iComfort’s vibration plate does exactly that: it vibrates, which then causes your muscles to contract anywhere from 25 to 50 times per second, allowing for faster and better overall body toning (particularly the arms, legs, back, hips and even abs).

While I didn’t find any reviews on this particular vibration plate, I did however find a couple of Amazon for the LifeSpan one, with one reviewer most notably pointing the advantages of this machine:

What this machine is good for is the person who is very very out of shape (I’m not) or who has mobility problems. It can do many good things and that is covered in the book too. For example, it can really help a person with balance/walking problems.

Another major plus is that shipping and handling are included in the price, meaning that you can order it online and have it delivered straight to your door with absolutely zero hassle and for free!

Have you ever tried a vibration plate? Share with us your thoughts on this interesting machine in the comments section.
