Costco Canada 2014 Boxing Week Event Now On!

Posted by on December 22, 2014 at 8:12 AM

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.

Costco Canada: BACtrack Element Breathalyzer Was $125 | Now $99

Posted by on December 16, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Costco Canada: BACtrack Element Breathalyzer Was $125 | Now $99

With the holidays approaching, there is one thing you really don’t want to have to worry about – drunk drivers! While they say distracted driving is causing more deaths than drunk driving, you still don’t want to be responsible for anyone leaving your home and driving while intoxicated. Costco has the BACtrack Element breathalyzer on sale with $25 off right now, down to $99 and free shipping.

While not the most fun thing to think about, we all need to be responsible over the holidays (and any time really). I’m sure there have been times you’ve had a few at a friend’s house or out for dinner and wondered if you should be driving. I find over the holidays it gets easy for people to over-indulge and do things they normally might not. If you haven’t seen your family in a while or just because you are so festive, you might be having such a good time that you aren’t monitoring your drinking.

Be pro-active and get yourself a breathalyzer to take the guess work out of if you’ve had too much. If you have, then you know you’ll need a cab, a sleepover or someone else to take you home. As well, this would be a good thing to have if you are holding a party – get your guests to blow into the device before they leave. You really don’t want to be responsible for someone else leaving your house and getting on the road when they shouldn’t.

While it only has one review, it is a very helpful one:

Perfect gift for all the conscientious drinkers who want to ensure they are okay to drive, or not! We tried this with males/females and different sizes of people and everyone agreed that it was a really helpful tool for being a responsible driver!

Like the reviewer said, this could also make a great gift for someone you love. Perhaps you have a newly of age teenager and you are worried about them drinking too much. All you can do is give them the tools and hope they use them.

I did price compare and this is the best price on this unit.

Be responsible this holiday season Moosers!

Costco Canada: Oster 1.5L Jug Style Kettle – Now Just $35 (Was $48)

Posted by on December 14, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: Oster 1.5L Jug Style Kettle   Now Just $35 (Was $48)

Costco has the Oster 1.5L jug style kettle on sale for just $34.99 right now. It was originally priced at $47.99.

With a 1.5L capacity, this Oster kettle is made with brushed chrome and white accents. It also as a 360° rotational base, which means that you won’t have to worry about placing it just right. There is also an external water level gauge in the same spot as the handle. This may seem like an obvious aspect to have but in all actuality, not all kettle have an external water level gauge but it’s definitely very handy to have.

A $13 price reduction may not seem like much but I thought I would blog this kettle anyways for a couple of reasons. First of all, a jug-style kettle is original in of itself, especially if you’re looking to give a tea-lover a kettle as a Christmas present. Secondly, it’s also the cheapest price all around as Sears has it priced at $59.99, while everywhere else, like Walmart and Best Buy, it’s priced at $49.98. There are no reviews for it on Costco’s site, but here’s one I found at Sears:

Have had my Oster kettle for about 5 years — fabulous! Only one on the market that keeps the water hot all day (and night, too!) — just a couple of minutes, and it’s back to boiling! Easy to clean, even in this hard water area — a splash of vinegar once every couple of weeks, and it’s good to go!

The fact that the water stay hot for a while is definitely a major plus. I’ve had the same old cheap kettle for a couple of years now and always need to re-heat the water even after 10 minutes of it coming to a boil. So if you’re an avid tea, instant coffee or whatever other beverage drinker, then this is a major advantage.

According to one reviewer that wasn’t particularly satisfied with this kettle, the corn is on the shorter side. So definitely keep this mind but it shouldn’t be too much of a problem in most kitchens.

Costco also offers absolutely free shipping.

Costco Canada: Bionaire 40″ Electric Fireplace Was $259 | Now $180 & Free Shipping

Posted by on December 10, 2014 at 1:50 PM

Costco Canada: Bionaire 40 Electric Fireplace Was $259 | Now $180 & Free Shipping

The Bionaire 40in. electric fireplace is now on sale for $179.99 plus included shipping. Originally marked at $259 you’ll save 30%.

When the weather gets cold nothing beats a roaring fire and a cup of hot cocoa. I have a pretty small space in my living room with no wood chimney, so having a wall mounted unit that can be turned on and off in a flash is perfect. I really like this sleek design, and even more, I like not cleaning soot off of it all of the time! The LED effect is a little cheesy to me, but it has a better look then a projected image, which looks a lot less realistic. The remote is magnetic to make it easier to find, just don’t get it mixed up with the tv remote!

One of the other benefits of an electric fireplace like this is that you keep dangerous fumes out of your house. No more scouting the best deal on wood (or chopping it yourself, ahhh the endless chopping in the fall to prepare for winter!), electric fireplaces makes the whole room warm and toasty quick! Plus you can move this from room to room as, so if you’re having company or just want to change it up, you could move it around to a different spot then you normally keep it in.

In the summer time out comes our wall unit air conditioner, and in goes the fireplace to free up more space! There is one major downside compared to the classic wood fireplace- during a power outage electric fireplaces can’t run! It’s not a great backup source for heat, so you’d have to go find someplace else warm or run it off of a generator. It is missing that smell of the logs burning and the crackle and snap of the flame. You won’t be turning your home into a classic log cabin with this model anytime soon, but it’s a nice modern alternative.

This model isn’t available at other retailers, though Bionaire Canada has it on their website for $295. Amazon has a similar model that is 36” for $180 also if you’re willing to sacrifice a few inches. Walmart has another Bionaire fireplace for $278. Fireplaces like these normally go for around $300 so if you’re looking for a nice small unit to brighten up your living room, these are pretty good buys!

Costco Canada: American Comfort Infrared Heater – $99.99

Posted by on December 9, 2014 at 11:28 AM

Costco Canada: American Comfort Infrared Heater   $99.99

Costco Canada has a very good deal on the American Comfort Infrared Heater 1500 W. This heater is on sale at Costco Canada for $99.99 with free shipping and handling.

I did a bunch of price comparing to ensure you are getting the best deal on this beauty. I found the heater at several other retailers, but it was hard to find it still in stock!

  • $129 @ Walmart Canada (OOS)
  • $139 @ Staples Canada (OOS)
  • $185 @ Lowes Canada

Yes, any company that has the American Comfort Infrared Heater at a reasonable price is already sold out of the unit. Even so, Costco Canada is selling the unit for $29 less than Walmart’s price. I believe the retail price of this unit is closer to Lowe’s price.

This is the mother of all heaters. The American Comfort heater will heat up to 92.9 m² (1,000 ft²)  of space so your average one or two bedroom apartment will be all cozy under the power of just one single heater.

Now, the heater has some sweet features. The fireproof black plastic cabinet looks stylish. It will not stand out as an eyesore in your home as ‘that heater’ (like mine do). In addition, it is kid and pet proof ensuring those valuable members of your family do not get burned.

There is a remote control for the unit so you do not need to kneel down each time you want to make adjustments. In addition, the heater comes with adjustable settings including a 12-hour delay start timer, 12-hour delay power off timer, and an auto-on after power failure so you do not freeze the rest of the night.

The ultra-quiet scroll fan will ensure that the noise of your heater will not drown out anything else you are listening to – like the television or music.

Heaters are a great way to save money in the winter. We have highly inefficient baseboard heaters that sit under the draftiest part of our apartment: the windows. Using heaters instead of the baseboard heaters has really cut our energy costs through the winter. Our heaters are much smaller, so I run one wherever I am working and there is one in the bedroom to keep us warm at night.

This offer is part of Costco’s 12 Days of Holiday Deals. Each day a few new deals are revealed and all deals are valid until the end of the 12 days or until they sell out.

Costco Canada: $30 Off T-Fal 8-Person Reversible Raclette – Now $50

Posted by on December 7, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Costco Canada: $30 Off T Fal 8 Person Reversible Raclette   Now $50Make your grillin’ life that much easier with a raclette. The T-Fal 8-person reversible raclette is now $30 off at Costco and can be yours or just $49.99 (reg. $79.99). Shipping is free as well.

For just $50, this raclette definitely packs a punch as it features:

  • Cast aluminum reversible grill
  • High end brushed stainless steel
  • 8 non-stick deep trays + 8 nylon scrapers

It has 1200 watts, along with temperature control that is precise.

Price comparing, I found this same raclette for $99.99 at Hudson’s Bay and on sale for $79.99 (reg. $119.99) at Canadian Tire. At the latter, I also found this review:

My kids bought this for me for Christmas and I absolutely love it.. It something i would not want to spend on myself but was sure a treat to receive.. Works very well nothing sticks the shape is very convenient as is the size for our small table but roomy enough for the family to enjoy!

So if there is someone on your Christmas list for whom you’re not sure what to buy for Christmas, then this raclette could definitely make for a great present, especially since it’s just $50! But even if you’re looking to get it for yourself, it could be a great centrepiece when hosting. Not only will it get everyone talking about how great of a product it is, but it might even make your hosting duties easier as each guest could cook their own ingredients.

I’m thinking it could be perfect for making fajitas with each person grilling their own veggies. According to Hudson’s Bay’s product description, you can grill anything from vegetables, to meats and even cheese. The fact that it’s non-stick is also sure to make the grilling experience a much easier one but just in case, you can just scrape off the burnt bits with the provided scrapers.

Another major perk is that it’s dishwasher safe. Once everyone is done grilling, you can just throw it in in the dishwasher without worrying about any mess.

Although it’s not necessarily intended for this, I would totally use this raclette to make grilled cheese sandwich, especially as a midnight snack! Costco Canada: $30 Off T Fal 8 Person Reversible Raclette   Now $50

As usual, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping, so you won’t have to worry about any extra fees.

DeLonghi 10-pc. Florence Cookware Set Only $99.99 @ Costco Canada

Posted by on November 30, 2014 at 3:48 PM

DeLonghi 10 pc. Florence Cookware Set Only $99.99 @ Costco Canada

I found a delightful deal on this DeLonghi 10-piece Florence Cookware Set from Costco Canada. The set was $144.99, and is now on sale for just $99.99 with free shipping and handling.

The set comes with:

  • One quart saucepan with lid
  • Two quart saucepan with lid
  • Three quart saucepan with lid
  • Eight quart stock pot with lid
  • 8″  frying pan
  • 9.5″ frying pan

In the picture you might notice four other ‘things’ – these are four-piece refrigerator cover set that should also be included with your set of cookware as they are pictured and listed on other sites. I would be shocked if the set did not come with these refrigerator covers, which are useful in my opinion. My husband is always sticking our pots in the fridge. This cookware set is sold out many other places but there are no real reviews. I actually see that as a good sign – that people have not had cause to complain.

The set is made from 18/10 stainless steel. The DeLonghi cookware set is safe for all stove top types including induction and the cookware set is dishwasher safe as well. However, that stock pot might be a wee bit difficult to fit in the dishwasher with much else.

Pots and pans sets are always so hard to price compare because the retail prices that companies list are always widely different. For example, I found this exact set on Shop.ca. They have the original retail price listed as $499.99, and now it is on sale for $129.99. I also price compared this set with Amazon, as it is in the marketplace. They list the set as having an original retail value of $569.99, yet are selling it for $199 with $12.40 shipping. Either way, the price on Costco is better.

A 10-piece stainless steel cookware set for $100 is a good deal these days. Sometimes you can find aluminum sets for that price, but stainless steel sets are a bit harder to find. Happy cooking my lovely Moosers!

Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set – Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Posted by on November 29, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set   Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Black Friday got you worn out? Catch some much needed z’s on a brand new mattress! The Sealy Posturepedic Diaz queen mattress set is $250 off at Costco. You can get it for just $549.99 instead of its original price of $799.99. Shipping is also absolutely free! This set comes with both the mattress and the box spring.

Normally, I wouldn’t blog about a mattress that can be bought online because it can be difficult to know if you will be happy with it once it arrives but in this case, I couldn’t pass up mentioning this steal of a deal to you Moosers.

For any of you looking for a great deal on a mattress, the Diaz mattress is definitely worth buying. Available in a queen size, it features:

  • 700 coils
  • 1″ Proback stabilizer pad
  • 0.5″ Proback CoreSupport Center with PostureGel memory foam
  • Comfortable quilted layers

According to the description, the coils on this mattress also offer 20% more support than other mattresses as they are reinforced with titanium alloy.

This mattress is a memory foam one but it’s nonetheless of the firm variety, which is the recommendation. Firm mattresses are recommended because they provide better body alignment. If you currently sleep on a soft mattress and experience constant fatigue, headaches and plenty of other unpleasant symptons, it might be worth switching mattresses to a firm one to see if matters improve. If they don’t, do make sure to consult with a doctor of course! Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set   Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Looking around, I couldn’t find this exact model of mattress anywhere else. However, I did find the Sealy Posturepedic Aperitivo Eurotep sleep set on sale right now until the end of the Black Friday week-end for $699.99 (reg. $1,399.99) and the description is exactly the same as that of the Diaz one. Both have the same number of coils, same Proback stabilizer pad, same quilting, etc.

As I already mentioned shipping is free, but keep in mind that if when your mattress arrives, you don’t like it for whatever reason, you will need to find a way to transport it back to your nearest Costco store. However, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like it, so no worries there!

Without any further ado, you can check out all of the items that are on sale during this Black Friday Event by clicking on the link below!

There are several great deals that you can take advantage of during this Black Friday Event at Costco. Some of the products that you should check out during this event are listed below:

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

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

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 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 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.

I bought this because my last food saver finally gave up the ghost. So much has changed since I bought my first one. The Game Saver is an excellent product which I use nearly everyday. I like being able to make my own size bags. The vacuum is strong and there are controls for wet and dry foods. Great product.
