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

Posted by on July 29, 2014 at 10:00 PM

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

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 2:00 PM

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.

Costco Canada: $45 Off Brother® PT2100 Electronic Labelling System (Now $29.99 | Was $74.99)

Costco Canada: $45 Off Brother® PT2100 Electronic Labelling System (Now $29.99 | Was $74.99)

Are you trying to be better organized?  Or do you already love organization and want a tool to help you on your way?  Be a master organizer with the Brother PT2100 Electronic Labelling System, which is now on sale for just $29.99 (reg. $74.99) at Costco.

I have about a million storage boxes, baskets and totes squirreled away in closets and in my basement.  I haven’t the slightest clue what is in most of them, which means that when I get the desire to hunt down that one crucial item, I’m lost in storage hell for hours.  This dilemma can easily be solved with the Brother PR2100 Electronic Labelling System.  This unit can work on its own and is also PC-connectable, allowing you to print up to 3 lines of text in 4 fonts and 10 type styles.  Slap a sticker on those boxes so you know exactly what’s inside.  I also like the idea of using labels to mark the plethora of cables that live behind my TV.  I’m always afraid to unplug something since they’re all tangled up.  This label maker will allow me to easily identify where each cord leads.

The labels are laminated, which helps in lots of ways, especially in the kitchen.  I have my spice jars labelled with hand-written stickers that get smeared and smudged when I touch them with my grubby, greasy kitchen hands.  I look forward to replacing those with much more durable labels.  You can even add pictures and logos!  The 16 character x 3 line LCD display lets you see exactly what you’re printing before you commit.

I’m actually thinking that this might be a helpful way for me to help the kids remember what goes where in their bathroom.  I’m going to label the various drawers with the items that belong in each one.  Maybe they will grow up to be more organized than I am!

The Brother PT2100 Electronic Labelling System comes with an AC adapter (it also uses AA batteries) and 12mm starter tape.

As far as price comparing goes, I found the Brother PT2100 Electronic Labelling System at Staples.ca for $99.96. Canada Computers currently sells this unit for $74.99. This is a deal not to be missed!  To make the deal even sweeter, Costco offers absolutely free shipping!

Costco Canada: $70 Off Elise Brown Jewellery Armoire (Now $170 | Was $250)

Posted by on July 14, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Costco Canada: $70 Off Elise Brown Jewellery Armoire (Now $170 | Was $250)Is your jewellery always scattered all over the place? Organize it with the Elise brown jewellery armoire, which is now on sale for just $169.99 (reg. $249.99) at Costco.

A couple of months ago, I was very tempted to get the Anika dresser top jewellery box at Costco but ended up buying it for a friend instead for her birthday. I’m actually happy I didn’t get it for myself also because I much prefer this mirror armoire instead. It’s a free standing jewellery closet with enough hooks, ring bars and overall space to hold just about any jewellery collection. At first, I wondered if I would have enough room in my bedroom for this but considering it’s only 4 inches wide and stands about close to 5 feet tall, I could definitely tuck it into a corner. I tend to scatter my make-up everywhere and so, I would definitely use it to put some essential make-up pieces to quickly use on my way out as well. It could even be placed in the entryway if you don’t already have a mirror there.

The armoire can be tilted either up or down and comes in a brown colour with a veneer finish and solid wood. If you have little kids (or even big ones) that like to rifle through your collection, then it also comes with a lock and key for security.

Since necklaces are the worst to organize and keep untangled, I love that it comes with plenty of hooks. You could either use one necklace per hook or hang several ones on the same one (perhaps the thinner necklaces together and the rest on all the other hooks). You also won’t have to worry about your jewellery getting scratched as the armoire comes with a Jewel-Protect lining.

As far as price comparing goes, I found the mirror with jewellery cabinet at London Drugs for $129.99 at but it doesn’t look nearly as nice as Costco’s one and it also doesn’t have as many hooks or ring bars. In fact, Wagjag also has a cheaper deal available for a similar product: the wooden mirror jewellery cabinet for $150 but like London Drugs, it doesn’t have as many hooks or bars and the ring bars are plastic instead of wooden like the ones at Costco. Walmart has a more expensive one at $199: the Brassex jewelry cabinet with mirror and Amazon has the Southern Enterprises wall-mount jewelery mirror for $217.45 but it’s one that need to be hung up on a wall. Wagjag also currently has a similar mirror jewellery cabinet for %

It weighs 32lbs but luckily, you won’t have to lug it around as Costco offers absolutely free shipping!

Costco Canada: Pentax Q10 Digital Camera – Just $200

Posted by on July 7, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: Pentax Q10 Digital Camera   Just $200

If you’re looking to buy a new digital camera, then Costco is selling the Pentax Q10 camera for just $199.97.

Towards the last trimester of my pregnancy, I upgraded to an iPhone 5s from the 4s generation one because I figured that with the imminent arrival of my baby, I would need a better camera. In hindsight, I should have perhaps kept my old phone and bought a digital camera instead because although the quality of my pictures has definitely improved, they definitely don’t compare to those taken with actual cameras as they are grainier when zoomed into.

The Pentax Q10 has the following noteworthy features:

  • 12.4 MP camera with a CMOS sensor
  • 3″ LCD monitor
  • full HD video
  • 5 fps high speed continuous shooting

The Photography Blog also recommends this camera for the everyday user as it has DLSR-like qualities without being a full-fledged DLSR one. I also really like that it’s small enough to fit into a pocket, or perhaps an overstuffed purse (;)) and only weighs 180 grams.

As for the battery life, according to Costco’s description, it can take an average of 260 pictures before needing to be recharged. The battery itself is also a lithium-ion one, which means that you won’t experience significant loss of charge when the camera isn’t in use. I particularly like this aspect as I’m definitely guilty of forgetting to recharge my electronics after using them.

I am very impressed for how much camera you get for a little price. It takes great shots if your not a pro but love pictures. Fun to use and looks smart. Super small and compact.

I love how that reviewer writes that this digital camera looks smart. I’m not too savvy with cameras, though I fancy myself to know a thing or two, but I definitely wouldn’t mind busting out this gagdet and taking pretty pictures, while turning the dial to the right setting as if I know exactly what I’m doing. Just kidding, but if you’re an everday photo-taker, then I’m sure you will catch my drift.

At $199, this is definitely the best deal all around for this nifty camera, especially since Amazon has it for $336.39 and The Camera Store is selling it for $379.56.

Even better is that Costco always offers free shipping on the vast majority of its products and you won’t have to worry about any pesky shipping fees.

Costco Canada Freebie: 2 Free General Admission Movie Tickets With Gold Star Or Executive New Membership

Here at Bargainmoose, we frequently write about amazing deals at Costco and if you’re not a member yet, then what are you waiting for? Costco has an awesome sign-up bonus right now: if you sign up right now, then you can use one of the following Costco promo codes to also receive 2 general admission movie tickets for absolutely free.

Click here to get the Gold Star Membership @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: GSWEB66
  • Discount: 2 free general admission movie tickets
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

Click here to get the Executive Membership @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: EXEC76
  • Discount: 2 free general admission movie tickets
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

While the Gold Star membership is $55 and grants you basic access to Costco’s membership, the Executive one is $110 and includes additional perks like a 2% annual reward (up to $750) and discounts on car rentals, credit card processing etc. The two general admission movie tickets will be sent by mail and even better is that they will both be eligible for SCENE points.

Not to be biased or anything but I’m a huge Costco fan and enjoy visiting their warehouse every week to take advantage of the various deals. Just last week, I bought a fantastic 8-pc colourful knife set for only $19.99! In fact, I just wrote about a great deal on $130 off a Graco 5-pc soho squares set that is now on sale for just $590 (reg. $720) and which could up to over $900 if the items were to be individually purchases elsewhere! The great part about shopping online at Costco is that shipping and handling are also absolutely free, unlike other stores, which charge outrageous shipping fees for big ticket items.

If you’re a huge movie buff, then you should also know that Costco has a variety of movie ticket packages such as the Cineplex Night Out movie package for just $24.99. It comes with 2 general admission tickets, 2 regular soft drinks and 1 regular popcorn.

Unfortunately, this freebie is only valid for new memberships and can’t be used on renewals; otherwise I would have definitely already redeemed it on the Transformers: Age of Extinction movie (pictured on the image above).

Which movie are you most looking forward to see in theatres this summer?

Costco Canada: $130 Off Graco 5-pc Set Soho Squares (Now $590 | Was $720)

Posted by on July 2, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Costco Canada: $130 Off Graco 5 pc Set Soho Squares (Now $590 | Was $720)

Shopping for the imminent arrival of a baby? Then here’s an absolutely amazing deal from Costco: for a limited time, you can get the Graco 5-pc Soho Squares set for just $589.99, down from $719.99. The set comes with a Click connect travel system (stroller and car seat), a pack ‘n play, a swing along with a high chair.

Ever bought something, only to wish later on that you could have taken advantage of a different kind of deal? This is exactly how I feel about Costco’s Graco deal because so far, I have gotten both the Graco travel system and the pack ‘n play separately but I’m still in need of a high chair. As for the swing, I bought the Ingenuity InLighten cradling one that I wrote about recently).

Here is a breakdown of how much each item is worth on their own at Toys R Us:

The total of which comes up to a whopping $909.96. So if we look at Costco’s current price, that’s actually 35% off the price of if you were to get all of the items at Toys R Us. Even better about getting this set at Costco is that shipping is absolutely free. I can’t even begin to tell you how much of a pain it was to bring my Graco travel system home. Since there was no way the box was fitting inside my teeny car, I had to open it in-stores and then play tetris with all of the pieces — definitely quite the experience, but not one I would want anyone else to go through.

Although I can’t vouch for neither the swing nor the high chair, I do, however, love the travel system and the pack ‘n play! Although the stroller is slightly on the bulkier side, it’s super easy to manoeuvre, the storage basket has plenty of room and I love that it comes with cup holders. The pack ‘n play is great as well, but I have to admit that I never once used the changer, though I originally saw it as a neat feature to have.

Costco.ca: Wentworth Entryway Bench (Now $239.99 Was $289.99)

Posted by on June 26, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Costco.ca: Wentworth Entryway Bench (Now $239.99 Was $289.99)

Costco is offering a $50 instant rebate on the Wentworth Entryway Bench, now $239.99 (regularly $289.99).

With small children and three adults in our home, our front hall needs lots and lots of storage. We fortunately have a little alcove inside our front door which is perfect for a bench, so when I saw this piece I immediately went and measured to see if it would fit. We have a bench there now but it doesn’t provide storage, so having a piece that would do double duty is amazing.

Here’s what I love about the Wentworth Entryway Bench:

  • It’s wood, which allows for easy clean up (our current bench has a microfibre on the seat, looked nice when we first bought it but stains easily).
  • It offers five small cubbies underneath the seat which I will buy baskets for to keep the storage looking clean. We could store our shoes here but our entry way is small and I already installed a shoe organizer in our closet, so instead we will use these cubbys for sunscreen, head phones, car chargers, sunglasses, GPS, or pretty much anything that we may need to grab as we run out the door. And knowing me and my obsession with organization, I will assign a cubby to each member of our family (it works out nicely that there is one for each of us).
  • It has bonus storage with the drawers that pull out. To be honest, I don’t have a plan yet for these two gems but I know I will put them to good use.

Here is a review that may give you some more insight into the quality and storage capabilities:

This bench is made of solid wood, nicely finished with high quality hardware that pulls all the pieces together tightly.
Assembly took me just under 3 hours and I found it required concentration but was not difficult. The instructions are clear, it just takes some time to tighten all the bolts and screws.
I was disappointed that the cubicles on the bottom were not large enough for my size 9 men’s shoes to sit comfortably together in one cubby. I have squished them in by putting one shoe sideways, but I would have rather had 4 larger cubbies that fit shoes comfortably than the 5 that make them too tight. For smaller shoes, kids shoes especially, I’m sure this would not be a problem.
Also the wood is a little darker than it shows up on my computer monitor, but the overall finish is rich and smooth.
The delivery time was blazingly fast.

As always, Shipping is free from Costco.

Please note I do not 100% guarantee these results and am not liable if you do not believe that your street cred with the kids has skyrocketed.

With a projector you can make the picture as big as you like, depending on the size of room you have, the bigger the room the farther you can mount the projector from the wall or screen and the larger the image will be.  Make sure when you are thinking about where you will be placing the projector it has an unobstructed view of the screen as anything in the way of the projection will block the image.  This model is also 1080p, which ensures a smooth clear picture, and it is 3D capable, which allows you to experience the latest X-Men movie or Lord of the Rings movie in the way the directors intended.  3D gaming, while not something you will always use, with the right game, is a truly immersive experience.

Costco Canada: $30 Off Chef’s Banquet Emergency Food All-Purpose Readiness Kits (Now $110 | Was $140)

Costco Canada: $30 Off Chefs Banquet Emergency Food All Purpose Readiness Kits (Now $110 | Was $140)

Get ready for the zombie apocalypse with Chef’s Banquet emergency food storage: ARK (all-purpose readiness kits) and save a pretty penny at the same time. Originally priced at $139.99, Costco currently has it reduced to just $109.99.

Prepare to be amazed: this emergency food kit actually comes with as many as 335 servings. With its price reduction, that comes down to just $0.33 per serving! It’s made to feed one person three times per day and comes with the following foods:

  • Beef flavoured vegetable stew
  • Chicken flavoured vegetable stew
  • Polenta
  • Pasta and marinara sauce
  • Red beans and rice
  • Mixed vegetables
  • Spanish rice
  • Hearty potato soup
  • Instant potatoes
  • Rolled oats
  • Orange drink

Emergency food kits make me think of end of the world scenarios but in all reality, these are actually more versatile. Although they have a 20 year shelf life, they can be used during power outages, snowstorms etc. Plus, you could also take them on camping trips or just have them for the fun of it. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I ordered this and it arrived the next day. I’ve tried over half of the food and it has all been good. My kids have eaten everything and the grown ups like it too. Our very favorites are the Beef Stew and Rice and Beans. The Chicken Stew was great, but I would describe it more as a Creamy Chicken Soup. It has been very convenient and nice to get a variety pack like this.

Price Comparison

This same food kit is as much as $163.95 on Amazon.ca and $156.38 at Overstock. Looking up other emergency kits, I actually found 16 servings of 100% USDA freeze dried beef dices at TotalPrepare for as much as $356.95 — that’s $22.31 per serving!

Shipping

It comes in a 22.7 liter container but you won’t have to worry about its weight as shipping is absolutely free.

Costco Canada: Astra Video Monitor $30 Off Now $159

Posted by on June 19, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Costco Canada: Astra Video Monitor $30 Off Now $159

Get $30 off the Astra Digital Baby Video Monitor with Talk to Baby Intercom and 2 cameras at Costco.ca until June 29th, and it will ship for free. Pay only $159.99 now, with a regular price of $189.99.

Baby video monitors are very common now, but go back 8 years and I can tell you that they were just gaining momentum and starting to come down a bit in price then. For the most part though they were still on the upper end.

I remember when my husband’s friend sent us a baby video monitor as a gift, I was blown away! It was one of those baby items that I never considered buying for us but it truly was a deal changer. It definitely gave us a little more freedom and reassurance. Fast forward 8 years and the quality and accessibility, just like all technology, is like comparing apples to oranges when you look at the video monitor we had. These are just a few of the features I appreciate about the Astra Digital Baby Video Monitor: the colour monitor, the talk to baby 2 way communication, the adjustable camera allowing you to position it up to 300° horizontally and up to 110° vertically, plus the fact that it comes with two cameras. This last feature is very helpful especially if your baby likes the swing or if you have a secondary nap location like we did.

I’ve decided to pick this monitor up for when the grandbaby visits. With this new addition to our family and the hustle and bustle that comes with having two small children of my own, this will give me piece of mind that everyone is sleeping peacefully (aka, that the little uncles aren’t trying to snuggle with the new babe too often).

Because I am buying it from Costco Canada I have no worries about returning it if it doesn’t fit our needs. You can find many reviews on this monitor across the different merchants, this one specifically spoke to me because of the way our house is laid out:

I received this monitor as a gift at my baby shower and I absolutely could not live without it. My baby’s room is upstairs and our room is downstairs. She talks in her sleep so we were having to check on her often with just the sound monitor. We got out the video monitor and we have slept great ever since. I have been using this monitor now for 4 months.

For price comparison check out the same combo with 2 cameras at Amazon.ca ($349.99) as you can see this deal at Costco is amazing. Even if you opt for the one camera version at Walmart Canada or Amazon.ca (both $179.97), you are still getting a better price through Costco!

As always, shipping is free with Costco.  Plus, their return policy is amazing in my opinion.

Costco Canada: Bridgeport 4 Seat Glider Only $729 ($140 off)

Posted by on June 16, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Costco Canada: Bridgeport 4 Seat Glider Only $729 ($140 off)

This deal is really exciting for me as I’ve been eying up this glider for a short while. Get $140 off the four-seat glider from Bridgeport at Costco.ca until June 29th, and it will ship for free. Pay only $729.99 now, with a regular price of $869.99.

I’m moving shortly and looking to furnish my backyard. Right now we have three cheap chairs that really need to go out to the curb and I want something more fun and better looking to sit on. When I was young, my family had porch swings, which I loved and remember the great memories of sitting with family on the swings. I then bought myself one and I have great memories and photos sitting on that swing through the years. This glider is like a two-in-one, because I need something we can eat and play games on, but it also has the gliding function so I can relax on it and read a book or cuddle with one of my kids.

My only issue with it is that I have three kids, so the three of them will have to squish into two seats together. I know this glider is also good quality with a durable aluminum frame, PVC-coated polyester mesh and a waterwave glass table top. I love that it has the canopy over it to keep you in the shade and that you don’t have to put it only on a deck, it works well also in a back corner of your garden. It comes in either charcoal or bronze, which are both dark colours that will complement any yard.

What I love about buying things from Costco online is that the shipping is included. A large item like this might cost quite a bit to ship, but you don’t have to worry about that. I also love their return policy, which is usually no questions asked, even if you had put this together and taken it apart, they will let you return it as they have a 100% risk free satisfaction guarantee.

Costco Canada Freebie: Free 6-Month Netflix Subscription With Purchase Of LG LAP340 Bluetooth Sound Plate

Posted by on June 12, 2014 at 11:30 PM

Costco Canada Freebie: Free 6 Month Netflix Subscription With Purchase Of LG LAP340 Bluetooth Sound Plate

If you’re in the market for a sound plate, then Costco is currently offering an interesting freebie. With the purchase of an LG LAP340 multi-channel bluetooth sound plate, you will also receive a 6-month subscription to Netflix for free. It’s $299.99 and comes up to $303.49 with the mandatory $3.50 eco fee.

Although many make the argument that the American Netflix is better than the Canadian, I love the Canadian one nonetheless because it has certainly improved tenfold in the past couple of years. With shows like Orange is the New Black, Glee, and The Walking Dead and movies like Olympus Has Fallen, A Good Day To Die Hard and Star Trek: Into Darkness, there is definitely plenty to watch!

This sound plate is also pretty cool because if your TV is mounted on the wall, then you can easily connect it via bluetooth without having to figure out how to plug it. Otherwise, you can simply place the television on top of it. It also has 4.1 channel surround sound and can fit most TVs from 32″ to 55″.

Price comparing this sound plate, I actually found it at its cheapest at Visions for $298 but what makes this deal particularly worth it is the Netflix subscription. On its own, Netflix is $7.99 per month for 2 screens, which comes up to $47.94 for 6 months. According to the redemption instructions for this promotion, however, the total value of the 6-month is $53.94 and can be applied to a different plan such as the 4 screens one, which is $11.99 per month. Both plans also come with high definition.

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

This is an attractive, sturdy unit that serves as the base for an 80 lb. television, and sounds better than my stock T.V. speakers. it has the added advantage of playing music from my laptop/phone/tablet/iPod touch through a blue tooth connection.

The fact that it can play music with other devices is definitely an added bonus and one that would be particularly useful when entertaining guests.

Alternatively, you can also get a LG webOS Smart TV and get a 1-year subscription to Netflix instead.

Surprisingly, I also found this sound plate for as high as $447.99 at NCIX and even $414.22 at Amazon.ca.

The great part about buying online with Costco is that you don’t have to worry about any additional charges as shipping is free.

Costco Canada: Eneloop Charger & Batteries Only $40 ($10 Off) & Free Shipping

Costco Canada: Eneloop Charger & Batteries Only $40 ($10 Off) & Free Shipping

I recently blogged about Eneloop batteries and found out just how popular these batteries are. Everyone loves them! So, I found another Eneloop deal for you, this time from Costco. Get the Sanyo Eneloop 1500 overnight charger kit, which comes with 10 AA batteries and four AAA batteries (along with the charger) for only $39.99, with a regular price of $49.99 and shipping is included.

Why are these batteries so great?

These Eneloops are the newest in battery technology and retain power longer than regular rechargeable batteries, along with lasting longer over the years. Ironic as it is, these batteries are even environmentally friendly, as they come solar charged right out of the pack. You can recharge these batteries 1500 times and they reduce the waste of throwing away many other regular batteries. They are definitely worth their cost. As compared to other rechargeable batteries that lose 1% of their energy per day when not used, Eneloops keep 85% of their charge over one year. These batteries are also recyclable.

The charger can be used for these batteries or for other rechargeable batteries and it has a built-in foldaway plug.

Price Comparison

While I didn’t see this exact set for sale, the price I’m finding for the charger and only 4 AA batteries is $29.99. This means for an extra $10 you are getting another six AA batteries plus four AAA batteries. I’m sure they could be put to good use.

Shipping

Costco ships everything for free, although I do think the cost is absorbed in the price of your product, as the warehouse can sometimes be cheaper. Even still, with the free shipping, the prices are usually cheaper than elsewhere, as they are for this set.

I think I’m going to pick up this set, as we have a lot of devices that use batteries, like kid’s toys, controllers and cameras.

Danby Beverage Centre only $172.99 & Free Shipping @ Costco.ca

Danby Beverage Centre only $172.99 & Free Shipping @ Costco.ca

Right now, you can pick up one of the Danby DBC120BLS 3.3 cu. ft. Beverage Centres online @ Costco Canada for a great price – it’s down from $207.99 to only $172.99 with free shipping and handling to your home. Here’s where to get it:

There are a number of reviews and ratings for this Danby beverage centre on the Costco site. They give it a rating of 4/5 from 26 reviewers, which seem positive. The reviews themselves are pretty much what you’d expect; for example:

This fridge not only looks great but it really performs! It holds all my pop, water, and other beverages, which leaves my main fridge with more shelf space for food.

Sounds about right! I actually have a full-size secondary refrigerator in my utility room, it’s mainly for beverages. If you don’t have the space for a large device, then this could be ideal.

Obviously this isn’t a proper refrigerator; it’s just a small Danby beverage centre. But if you’ve been wanting one of these devices in a den, or perhaps for someone to take to a dorm at college, this could be very useful.

I remember that at university, we had communal kitchens and sometimes foodstuffs would mysteriously disappear from the refrigerators. I would have loved to have one of these little beverage centres in my room; not only to store beverages as the name suggests, but for which to keep safe some of my smaller food items. That would have foiled the Ham Thief of ’99!

Actually, I’m even considering the likes of this for my partner at work. He doesn’t have anywhere to keep food cool in his office, and ends up purchasing extremely expensive lunches from the eateries roundabout his workplace. With one of these little fridges, he could bring his food and drinks to work… and the initial expenditure would probably pay for itself within a year or so, based upon the monetary value of savings on food expenditure.

Price comparison:

Not many online stores in Canada sell this exact Danby model, but from where I can find it, I can see that the Costco price is the cheapest online by quite a margin. E.g. This fridge is $300 @ Tanguay, $300 @ Amazon, $208 @ Walmart, $299 @ CanadianApplianceSource.
