Costco Canada: $90 Off Neato Signature XV Vacuum – Now $300

Posted by on October 28, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Costco Canada: $90 Off Neato Signature XV Vacuum   Now $300

Save time cleaning with the Neato Signature XV robot vacuum. It’s on sale for just $299 at Costco and was originally priced at $390. Shipping is also absolutely free.

Is your life plagued by never ending dust bunnies? Mine sure is! Two cats, a baby and a hubby will definitely do that to you. Vacuuming once a week just doesn’t cut it anymore, especially since one of my fur babies sheds like a dog, but with our busy schedules, we simply don’t have time to clean the house top to bottom more than once. It’s for this reason that we have been looking into getting a robot vacuum.

In the spirit of saving money, we recently got a Vileda one for less than $50 but as great at it was, especially at keeping the cats entertained for a while, it just wasn’t ideal. A robot vacuum is what we need, especially one praised for having the best suction on the market and this is exactly where the Neato Signature XV comes in.

On top of having the best suction, it’s also one of the smartest robotic vacuums on the market as it features advanced laser guided mapping that allows it to know exactly where it’s going and it will also remember where it has already been! It’s also touted as being great for pet owners and allergy sufferers as it will pick everything up whenever you want.

Admittedly, reviews are mixed but I’m not worried. Even if I happen to get a lemon, I won’t hesitate to return it to Costco as they have a wonderful return policy. From reading the reviews online, it also looks like Neato has wonderful customer service as all the people who complained of getting a lemon of a product were either refunded or sent a new robot vacuum. Plus, don’t forget that for every negative review, there are plenty of others that just didn’t post their positive reviews. Most would rather complain than praise! Costco Canada: $90 Off Neato Signature XV Vacuum   Now $300

It’s also the best price compared to anywhere else as both Amazon and Best Buy have it listed for $447.98. In fact, here’s a snippet of a review from Best Buy’s site as it definitely sums up this little robot very well:

We’ve had the Neato Robotics xv Signature Pro for about 8 months now. We are a multiple dog household, kid, careers — the lot. Vacuuming isn’t high on the list of favourite things to do. This robot vacuums our floors — hardwood and tile, with throw rugs daily and thoroughly. Could I do better myself? Probably/maybe. Faster? Definitely. But as the Neato is working, I’m either doing other things, or I’m not home. Makes for great time management. Love this little bot!!!

$40 off Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch: Now $69.99 & Free Shipping @ Costco.ca

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 10:00 AM

$40 off Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch: Now $69.99 & Free Shipping @ Costco.ca

If you or your partner are on the lookout for a new watch, consider this pretty hot deal on the Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch on special offer at Costco Canada just now. Originally priced at $109.99, they’ve knocked $40 off this price bringing it down to only $69.99. Plus, you will get free shipping and handling too!

The Casio Edifice Chronograph Men’s Watch EFR-529-7A is a grey and green finish as pictured above, so it may not be to everyone’s taste. Personally, I quite like the colour. Regardless of the fact that this is a man’s watch, I’d wear this myself.

The Casio watch has only got 5 reviews on the Costco site, but it scores a total rating of 4.5/5 on those, with comments such as:

Good weight, simple – no unneeded bells and whistles, comfortable band … looks and feels great, fantastic price.

One commenter was irked that the watch didn’t come with any instructions. I don’t think this is a big deal… watches are extremely to operate. And if all else fails, just google for help.

To price compare: while this exact watch isn’t sold at many other retialers, I did spot it for $107 @ PC-Canada, $124 @ FrontierPC and $115 @ DirectDial. The Costco price comes in well below the competition.

Believe it or not, I started my Christmas shopping last week! I know it’s only October, but when you spot great bargains on various items, it’s good to buy them and start putting them away for Christmas. Out of the list of around 14 family members I have to buy for, I’ve already got pressies for four of them. I’m being very well-organised this year! I bring this up because this Casio watch is just the kind of deal which could be good to buy as a Christmas pressie. Getting it now, putting it away until December… it’s a great idea to save money these holidays.

Costco Canada: Blendtec Professional Blender Only $390

Posted by on October 14, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Costco Canada: Blendtec Professional Blender Only $390

Costco has a fabulous deal on right now on the Blendtec professional series blender with 0.9L wildside jar. Now only $389.99, you’ll save $100 on this beauty.

I was recently at Costco getting myself a new blender. I wasn’t completely sure I wanted to spend $500 on a blender so went cheap and got a great deal on a Magic Bullet. But, after bringing it home, I kind of wish I would have splurged a little and got this top-of-the-line blender. I make most of my food from scratch and something like this is incredibly useful.

For example, I made a soup for Thanksgiving this weekend and there was no way I could have blended it up in my Magic Bullet and I instead had to use hand beaters. It got it mostly blended, but it took quite a bit of work and there were still a lot of chunks. The Blendtec would have made my soup a smooth puree in seconds.

Not just soups, the Blendtec does wonders with ice cream, juice, bread dough, margaritas, salsas and more. It also has a 7-year warranty, which is quite a long warranty for a small appliance. Even if it didn’t have such a great warranty, Costco has such an amazing return policy anyway.

It looks to me like Costco is one of the only stores in Canada to carry this blender. Amazon carries it from a secondary seller for over $600 and any other store I found was well over $400. Even used on eBay, it sells for over $300. These might also have shipping fees on top as well, but Costco ships it to you for free.

If you are on the fence about Blendtec, maybe thinking about the Vitamix, you might want to read these reviews on Amazon called Blendtec vs. Vitamix.

This review sums it up beautifully:

It is so-o-o-o easy to “get every last bit out” because the sides of the blender doesn’t have the unnecessary decorative grooves on the side. It makes a big difference if you’re the type that doesn’t like to waste. I feel that the Vita-Mix and Blendtec are equally noisy, but it does its job so quickly and efficiently that it really isn’t on for very long. It is so efficient and powerful that it doesn’t need a silly tamper to get everything blended well. It fits under my cabinet where I like to keep it and it is just perfect in every way… I just can’t say enough good things about this machine.

I’m considering returning my first blender and getting this one instead.

Costco Canada: Paderno 20-Piece Brackley Flatware Set | Was $100 Now $40 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 6, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Costco Canada: Paderno 20 Piece Brackley Flatware Set | Was $100 Now $40 (EXPIRED)

If you’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to purchase some quality flatware for a decent price, then you should check out today’s deal at Costco. You can get a Paderno 20-Piece Brackley Flatware Set for $39.99 – the regular price is $99.99 elsewhere. You’ll also get free shipping with your order! Just remember to have your Costco membership card handy when you’re placing your order.

This Paderno 20-Piece Brackley Flatware Set comes packaged with 4 knives, 4 forks, 4 salad forks, 4 spoons, and 4 tea spoons.

There comes a time when you need to replace your current set of flatware. Whether they’re becoming excessively stained, worn, or have just been around for way too long, this is something that eventually needs to be done.

I know that I had to eventually get a new flatware set a few years ago when my forks were starting to bend! I picked up a cheap set of them at WalMart, and even though they’re a decent set, they aren’t very spectacular. Some of the butter knives are starting to stain already, so I can’t say I’m very happy with my purchase, but I got what I paid for (I paid $24.99 for the set).

However, this Paderno 20-Piece Brackley Flatware Set normally costs $99.99 at several retail locations, which shows that this set is way more high end than the one I purchased at WalMart. Plus, since you’ll be getting it for $39.99, you can save $60!

If you were to purchase this Paderno 20-Piece Brackley Flatware Set at Paderno’s website, it would cost you $99.99. It’s currently on sale for a limited time at Future Shop for $49.99, but that deal is set to expire soon. If you want to learn more about Paderno’s line of products, just click here.

This is a great deal for a quality flatware set! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Costco Canada: Extra $10 Off Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend 200 K-Cups

Posted by on October 3, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Costco Canada: Extra $10 Off Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend 200 K Cups

Stock up on coffee and save $10 off the purchase of two 100-count boxes of Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend light roast coffee. Until the end of the week-end, you can get 200 k-cups for just $73.99 instead of the $83.99 original price.

Originally, I was going to blog about Costco’s deal on Van Houtte Original House blend, where a 96-count box is now $6 off. You can get either the regular or the decaffeinated versions for just $43.99 instead of the regular price of $49.99. It’s great deal considering that it comes down to just $0.46 per k-cup and that on Keurig’s own website, you would be looking at paying $15.71 for a 24-count box, which is $0.66 per k-cup and you would still have to worry about reaching the $45 minimum threshold for free shipping.

Costco, on the other hand, offers free shipping on every order and while if you’re a Van Houtte fan, that deal is worth taking advantage of right now as well, I actually much prefer Kirkland coffee. I buy their signature breakfast blend on a monthly basis because not only is it cheap, but it’s also delicious. It turns out that I have been slightly overpaying but what is the most surprising is that Costco’s online price for the two boxes doesn’t match their in-store price but their current discount is still much better.

In-stores, I usually pay $38.99 for a 100-count box of Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend but their online price for two boxes is $83.99, which is actually $6 more expensive than if you were to get the two boxes in-stores. Weird indeed but with the discount, you are looking at paying less. Right now, the price per k-cup is just $0.37, which is undoubtedly the lowest price I have ever seen for any coffee in k-cup format.

According to Costco’s description, it’s “a full-flavoured cup of sunshine” and I couldn’t agree more! This has been my go-to coffee for a couple of years now and although I like to switch it up occasionally, I always end up going back to it because not only is it delicious but I also love that I can have my coffee through k-cups without paying outrageous prices for them. As I have mentioned numerous times before, grocery stores frequently sell k-cups anywhere from $0.75 all the way up to $1 and that is just outrageous! I also love that it’s a light roast because that means there is more caffeine than in a darker roast.

The Source Canada: Sennheiser Open Wireless Headphones | Was $140 Now $80

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

The Source Canada: Sennheiser Open Wireless Headphones | Was $140 Now $80

If you’re a fan of high quality name brand headphones, it seems like now is the time to take advantage of some great sales! Right now, you can get some Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones for $79.99! The regular price of these wireless headphones is $139.99, so you’re saving $60! This order also qualifies for free shipping.

If you’re looking for the ultimate pair of headphones that can suit all of your audio related needs, these Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones  should easily keep you satisfied. With these high end headphones, you can have a range of up to 91 metres from the transmitter. To learn all about the specifications of these Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones , just click here.

Though I don’t own a pair of wireless headphones, I have tried out some Bose earbuds while going for a few jogs outdoors. Especially when compared to the stock headphones from Apple that came with my iPod, I noticed a huge difference between them. The Bose earbuds definitely made some of the songs I listened to sound even louder, while keeping the quality clean without any kind of distortion.

While the novelty of wireless headphones isn’t so fresh nowadays, it’s still exceptionally convenient to wear around the house – especially when you’re working out. You won’t have to worry about wrangling with a cord when you’re on the treadmill anymore, or if you’re trying to prepare some dinner. These Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones can really be quite useful!

At Future Shop and Best Buy, these wireless headphones currently cost $119.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of these Sennheiser RS116 Wireless Headphones from a satisfied customer of The Source below:

The headphones are comfortable, the ear pcs could be slightly larger but the still fit well. The sound quality is excellent. At low volumes the bass is still vibrant and clear. The true distance you can go before sound breaks up appears to happen around the 60 – 80 ft mark which is more than what I need. Overall these are worth the investment!

Check out this deal before these headphones revert back to the regular price. I hope you all have a great weekend, Bargainmoosers!

Costco Canada: Queen Organic Cotton Sheet Set 300 TC Only $62.99

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Costco Canada: Queen Organic Cotton Sheet Set 300 TC Only $62.99

Costco Canada has the most incredible price listed for their Organic Cotton Sheet Set. While these sheets are not on sale, I assume they will sell out quickly because their price is so extraordinary inexpensive. Buy a set of organic cotton sheets with matching pillowcases for just $62.99 with free shipping at Costco.

You might be wondering why I am blogging about something that is technically not on sale. Well, I am recently in the process of converting all my bedding over to organic. You have no idea the expense involved in buying organic sheets, so I have been price comparing everywhere I can find organic sheets in Canada (rare). The prices are astronomical as you can see for yourself.

As a price comparison, let us look at what the competitors are selling similar queen size organic cotton sheet sets for – around the same thread count.

The average set of 300 thread-count organic cotton sheets sells for $200 plus from most retailers. The cheapest places to find organic sheets are Shop.ca and this amazing deal at Costco. I own a pair of the Shop.ca sheets I linked to and I attempted to buy another pair just a couple weeks ago. However, they cancelled my order and told me the sheets had been discontinued. I told them they were still available for sale on the website and they thanked me for that information (not happy!). I suggest you do not try to purchase those sheets; they are for price reference only.

Costco’s price completely blows the competition out of the water. They are cheaper than the (non-existent) Shop.ca organic sheets by $30 and nearly 1/3rd the price of the majority of other organic sheet sellers. These sheets are made of 100% Egyptian organic cotton and are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified.

As they have not been processed with harsh chemicals, they might smell of vinegar. However, this smell will come out in a few washes. These are ivory sheets (though they look white in the picture) and the set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases. I use organic sheets because my skin is very sensitive to chemicals. I figure that anything that has contact with my skin, for eight hours a day, should not contain the same chemicals I would use to clean my toilet.

Costco Canada: 250GB Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle – Just $280

Posted by on September 23, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Costco Canada: 250GB Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle   Just $280

The Xbox 360 2013 holiday bundle is $50 off at Costco but just wait until you hear about everything that it comes with! Originally priced at $329.99, it’s now on sale for just $279.99.

Now, let me start off by mentioning that if you’re only looking to buy the console by itself, then Walmart is currently offering a $129 deal on the 4GB Xbox 360 and it also comes with a bonus $50 Walmart gift card, but, and I can’t stress this enough, it’s only 4GB.

If you’re looking to get an Xbox 360 with more storage, an extra remote, games, an Xbox LIVE subscription and more, then Costco’s deal is better by a long shot as for just $280, it comes with all of the following:

  • Xbox 360 console with 250GB
  • 2 black wireless remote controllers
  • 3 games: Halo 4, Tomb Raider & Forzia Horizon
  • 1-year subscription to Xbox LIVE Gold + 30 extra days
  • Play & charge kit
  • Battery pack

While you were receive an actual physical copy of Halo 4, the other two games, Tomb Raider and Forza Horizon come in the form of digital downloads, which means that you will more than likely be given unique codes to enter online. Since this Xbox 360 also comes with built-in wi-fi, you will be able to seamlessly subscribe to Xbox LIVE.

Although most Xbox 360 consoles automatically come with a 30-day suscription to Xbox LIVE, the fact that Costco’s deal comes with a full year on top of the usual free month is pretty awesome as an Xbox LIVE memberships has a number of awesome perks like: access to free games, special member discounts from 50% all the way to 75% off select games, etc. Plus, you can even video chat and play games online with friends and family.

Just to give you an idea, I tallied up how much all of these would cost individually if you were to take advantage of Walmart’s current deal with the free $50 gift card. This is what I came up with: $129 console + $70 remote + $40 Halo 4 + $20 Tomb Raider = $260. For the rest, I had to look on Amazon as Walmart didn’t have it: $30 Forza Horizon + $50 Xbox LIVE membership = $80. In total, all of these come up to $340, which is actually more expensive than Costco’s original retail price!

In fact, the Microsoft Store is selling a smaller version of this bundle for more expensive as well. At $300, their Xbox 360 holiday bundle comes with: 250GB Xbox 360 console, 1 wireless remote, Halo 4, Tomb Raider and 1 month of Xbox Live Gold.

Costco also offers free shipping.

Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off

Posted by on September 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off

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 Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off .”
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 savings!

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 $14.77, which still make Costco’s bulk on sale price the best.

Shipping is also free.

Costco Canada: $45 Off Bissell Symphony All-In-One Vacuum & Steam Mop – Now $175 (Was $220)

Posted by on September 1, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Costco Canada: $45 Off Bissell Symphony All In One Vacuum & Steam Mop   Now $175 (Was $220)

Ever wish you could clean your floors in one go? With the Bissell Symphony All in One Vacuum and Steam Mop you can! Even better is that it’s currently on sale for just , instead of its usual price of $219.99.$174.99

Don’t you just hate stepping on dirt when walking barefoot around the house? I typically wear socks but even walking from the bathroom to the bedroom after a shower can be a major drag as it has happened more times than not that my feet would be all dirty just from a couple of steps. Having two cats definitely doesn’t help in that department but the fact that I now have a baby makes it even harder to fit in time to clean the floors. More than anything, I find it annoying to have to go around vacuuming, then fill up water for the mop and go around the house yet another time mopping. I have come to the realization, however, that I need an even more efficient method of cleaning my place, even more efficient than using a Vileda mop and I’m certainly considering trying out the Bissell Symphony as it can either vacuum, steam or do both at the same time!

Safe to use on practically any kind of floor, the vacuum part has an easy to empty dust pan and the mop’s cloths are machine washable. Plus, it also has a 25′ cord length and an adjustable handle, which is definitely a feature that my hubby is sure to love as he is tall.

Although Costco’s site didn’t have any reviews, I did find close to 40 reviews on Amazon with a general consensus of 4.5 stars out of 5. In fact, here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I now have mostly hard floors (wood/tile) and needed a better way to keep them clean. I like to walk around bare foot, and can not stand the feeling of a dirty floor under my feet. The Bissell Symphony works great. It is easy to use, plus the time savings of being able to mop and vacuum at the same time. It heats up quickly and adding water is easy.

As for a price comparison, the Bissell Symphony is $219.99 at Amazon and London Drugs only has it in-stores for $199.99.

As always, Costco also offers free shipping, so you won’t have to worry about any added fees.

Costco Canada: T-Fal Clipso 6-L Pressure Cooker Only $99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on August 13, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Costco Canada: T Fal Clipso 6 L Pressure Cooker Only $99 & Free Shipping

With school starting in two and a half weeks, you might be fretting about all the rushed dinners you’ll have to cook before sports practices, after homework and before bedtime. I know I fret about that and I work from home. One tool that could help you quickly get foods cooked is a pressure cooker. Costco Canada has the T-Fal Clipso 6-litre pressure cooker on for only $98.99 with free shipping.

According to wikipedia, foods cook much faster in a pressure cooker, especially faster than conventional boiling. They also keep their nutrients much better than boiling as nothing leaches out into the water. It also uses less energy and water than boiling. You can also use a pressure cooker for sterilizing things like baby bottles and canning jars, so this is a dual-use product. It is even perfect to take camping with you to sterilize the water you might need to drink.

While this item isn’t technically on sale at Costco, it was the cheapest I could find it in Canada. Shop.ca has it on sale right now with a regular price of $199 and now on sale for $119.99. Hudson’s Bay sells it for a whopping $199.99, which is double Costco’s price and so does Canadian Tire. Best Buy is a step down from those prices at $197.98. Costco is obviously the best deal.

While I love to blog deals, I love to blog deals on products that have amazing reviews, like the T-Fal Clipso does. With nine reviews on Costco’s site, all of them give it five stars. The glowing reviews say:

This is a must have equipment in the kitchen. I can cook any type of meats in 20 minutes or less. Turkey and shanks are the one that I can cook in 20 minutes on low heat! Save money on energy and cook your meat in short time.

and

I’m very happy with this purchase.
After lots of research over the web, I decided on this product and I was surprised with the price at Costco!
It’s almost impossible to find a better deal for this pressure cooker anywhere.

Costco Canada: $35 Off Silk’n Blue Acne Device, Swirl & Blue Cleanse Facial Wash (Now $115)

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

Costco Canada: $35 Off Silkn Blue Acne Device, Swirl & Blue Cleanse Facial Wash (Now $115)

Costco has an amazing deal right now a trio of Silk’n products. You can save $35 off a combo of Silk’n Blue Acne device with Silk’n swirl and Blue Cleanse Facial wash and get all three for just $114.99 instead of $149.99. As always, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping!

First of all, these three products need to be used in the following order: first the facial wash, followed by the brush and finally the acne device. According to the description, it’s “dermatologist recommended and clinically tested to be effective” but keep in mind that for it to be effective, you need to actively use these products every single day. What I like the most about these is that the swirl can be used in the shower, which definitely makes the process easier as there is no worrying about it breaking from water.

Reviews

It appears that the Silk’n Blue Acne device is definitely a hit or miss among users, though in my opinion, it’s definitely at least worth a try with how low of a price Costco has it for. I found this great review on Amazon:

The product helped clear up my face but I didn’t have that much acne. If you have a lot of acne, I don’t suggest this product. However, it did clear my pimples and once it’s clear you only have to use the product once a week.

At the same time though, 2l2Q describes in her YouTube review of the device that although it helped to clear up her skin after a month of using it every day, her main issue was the time that it took because you have to keep the blue light on each problem spot for 3 minutes. This means that if you have 10 problem areas to treat, then it will take you half an hour every single day to treat. On the same token though, if it works, then it’s a small price to pay right? Perhaps the compromise would be to use it while watching TV or reading a book.

Price Comparison

Searching for the Silk’n Blue acne device, I actually found that on its own, it’s more expensive than all three of these products combined. I found just the acne device for the following prices:

Even more surprising is that The Shopping Channel had it for $299 but it is now sold out.

As for the Silk’n Swirl, it retails on average for $20 (Amazon has it for $19.96). As for the facial cleanser, I found the same one but in a different bottle for $24.99 at Amazon as well.

Costco Canada: 8ft Wall Panels Kit $130 with Free Proslat Hook Kit ($65 Value)

Costco Canada: 8ft Wall Panels Kit $130 with Free Proslat Hook Kit ($65 Value)

Purchase the Proslat 8 ft. Panel Kit from Costco Canada and receive a bonus Proslat Hook Kit valued at $64.99 with your purchase.

Click here to view the panel kit @ Costco.ca now

According to the promotion, a bonus hook kit will be sent with each 8 ft. wall panel ordered during the promotion period. If I am reading that right, it should mean that you can buy multiple panel kits and receive multiple hook kits: one for each panel kit you buy.

The panel kit costs you $129.99 with the hook kit freebie valued at $65. In my opinion, that is a good value gift with purchase.

The panels are made in Canada of 90% recycled material heavy-duty PVC. They are 2 mm thick and measure 8 feet tall. Each box comes with ten panels. One box of panels will cover an area of 32 square feet. Depending on the size of your garage and how many walls you want to cover, you may need more than one kit. The panels are a crisp white, but do not worry about them getting dirty. They are easy to clean and impact resistant. With their interlocking style, they are also resistant to mold, mildew, or water. If you install these in your garage – where most people will be – you can just hose them down if they get too dirty.

As for the hook kit, you receive good strong high-grade steel hooks with a silver powder-coated finish to put on your wall panels for hanging sports equipment, tools, and more. The kit comes with:

  • 12 x 10.2 cm (4-in.) hooks
  • two double 20.3 cm (8-in.) hooks
  •  two double 10.2 cm (4-in.) hooks
  • two super-duty hooks
  • two heavy-duty U hooks

You would be amazed how quickly you will go through these hooks. I am even looking at these kits and thinking I would need more hooks.

These two kits are a good way to save space in a crowded garage. Instead of piling everything on the floor, mount some of it on the wall. Those heavy-duty U-hooks would be good for a mountain bike and some of the other hooks can be used for extension cords, water hoses, kids’ bikes, car accessories, and other things.

The panels come with a 10-year warranty and I assume that the hooks do as well. While this kit would cost a fortune to ship from most any other retailer as it weighs in at 45 lbs, Costco offers free shipping and handling on all orders.

Costco Canada: $65 Off Estratto Water Cooler/Single Serve Coffee Maker & Free Shipping

Costco Canada: $65 Off Estratto Water Cooler/Single Serve Coffee Maker & Free Shipping

Get the convenience of a water cooler and coffee maker rolled into one with the Estratto bottom loading stainless water cooler with single serve coffee maker. It’s currently on sale for just $274.99  (reg. $339.99) at Costco.

Whenever friends and family come over, I always feel a little iffy about offering them water from the tap. My hubby and I regularly drink from the tap but I’m not as comfortable offering and always find myself apologizing for not having bottled water. A water cooler would certainly make things easier and this one would give the option of either water or coffee. I’m a huge coffee addict and already have a Keurig brewer, but this water cooler would definitely help to clear up valuable counter space as well.

The water cooler part of the machine uses 19L water bottles and can make up to 6L of cool water every hour. Not only is this a more eco-friendly way of drinking bottled water, but it’s cheaper and much easier than having to constantly stock up on bottles too. My household goes through dozens of bottles every week and it definitely amounts to a lot of wasted plastic, money and time spent buying it.

Surprisingly, the coffee maker actually features five cup sizes, from a small 4oz size to a large one perfect for a travel mug. Although according to reviews, the tray isn’t big or deep enough for a travel mug, but you could just hold your cup while it pours or use a larger cup to pour it into before transferring it. The coffee maker also only uses K-Cups, but I find these are much more convenient than waiting for coffee to brew the old-fashioned way. Plus, each cup of coffee always tastes the same and you can stock up on plenty of different flavours.

Although there are no reviews on Costco for this machine, there are a couple of mixed ones on Amazon.ca. It would seem that people either love or hate it. While one reviewer commented that the heater coil broke after a week, another posted the following five star out of five review:

We use a water cooler for drinking water…so, when I saw this with not only the bottom load for water jug, but also a built in single serve coffee maker…I was ecstatic!

Although it’s on sale for $349.97 (reg. $379.99) on Amazon.ca, Costco’s current and usual prices are still better deals.

As usual, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping.
