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

Posted by on June 11, 2014 at 11:00 AM

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

Posted by on June 8, 2014 at 12:28 PM

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.

Costco Canada: $45 Off Kanto FMX2 Articulating Wall Mount For 37″ – 80″ TVs (Now $90 | Was $135)

Posted by on June 4, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Costco Canada: $45 Off Kanto FMX2 Articulating Wall Mount For 37   80 TVs (Now $90 | Was $135)Costco Canada is offering an awesome deal on the Kanto FMX2 articulating wall mount for flat panel televisions from 37 inches to 80 inches. For a couple of days, you can get it for just $89.99, which is a $45 reduction from its original price of $134.99.

This is the kind of deal that even if you don’t need it right now, you should probbaly just get it for later, especially if you’re planning on buying a new flat panel television or are moving into a new place this summer.

I have been looking into getting a TV for my bedroom but it would be extremely inconvenient to place it anywhere else than on the wall. The room is already jam-packed with a queen-sized bed, two nightstand, a pack ‘n play and even two dressers… definitely no room for anything else but the wall have plenty of space! Costco Canada: $45 Off Kanto FMX2 Articulating Wall Mount For 37   80 TVs (Now $90 | Was $135)

As a full-motion wall mount made of solid steel construction, the Kanto can be tilted, swivelled left or right as well as extended. Plus, it even comes with a cable management system and can hold TVs up to 130 pounds. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

Great unit. I easily installed a 55″ LCD TV on a brick wall. Being able to pull the tv out so far from the wall makes it easy to hook up new components. Make sure you buy very long cables (HDMI, USB, ect). Top quality, better than anything they sell in the warehouse or other electronic stores

Price Comparison

Looking to compare prices, I found this same TV wall mount only on Amazon Canada for as much as $239.99! I also checked Best Buy for full-motion TV mounts and the cheapest I found for the same size is the Sonax TV mount for as much as $149.98.

As usual, Costco offers absolutely free shipping, which is always a great plus.

Costco Canada: $60 Off Riverfront Blast II Fireworks Kit (Now $180 | Was $240)

Posted by on June 3, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Costco Canada: $60 Off Riverfront Blast II Fireworks Kit (Now $180 | Was $240)

Ready, set, explode! What are your plans for Canada Day? Celebrate this iconic day on July 1st with a bang and save a good deal on Riverfront Blast II fireworks kit at Costco Canada. Originally priced at $239.99, you can now get it for just $179.99, but hurry because this price reduction won’t last long.

Speaking of which, these fireworks could actually also make a fantastic Father’s Day gift, especially for any Dad who loves the great outdoors and camping.

This kit comes with as many as 24 fireworks from the following varieties: cakes, fanned cakes, sky rockets, barrages, tubes, Brazilian shells, specialty bombettes, fountains and Roman candles.

Although I have only ever seen these at public events, my personal favourites come from the cakes variety: the Shotgun Wedding and the Falling Leaves ones, but I’m pretty sure that they are all very nice, especially since one reviewer noted the following:

It’s not really a competition but I almost felt embarrassed to have such an impressive show, simply because it made everyone else’s look a bit pathetic. By the end of it we had a big crowd show up.

Trying to price compare this firework set proved to be a challenge and a half as fireworks aren’t widely sold. This might be a vaster predicament as even in Montreal, where I’m located, fireworks are mostly only purchased on the Indian reserve. I did, however, find the Competition Killer set at Rocket.ca but at $229.99 for 9 cakes, the Costco deal definitely blows this one out of the water in terms of both price and quality.

Shipping is also absolutely free but before ordering, be sure to check your local laws on fireworks as some cities only allow the lighting of fireworks on national holidays.

Have any of you Moosers ever lit fireworks? What are the laws on this in your area?

7” Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet only $200 @ Costco

Posted by on June 1, 2014 at 1:15 PM

7” Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet only $200 @ Costco

I’ve been hunting for a tablet deal for my sister, who really wants to sit in front of the TV and have a little mini-computer in her hands for casual browsing at the same time. There’s a deal on this 7” Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet from Costco just now, which might just fit the bill. The tablet is priced at $199.99 with free shipping and handling. There’s no “was” price on this particular tablet… but read on down and I’ll explain how good a deal it is.

This Nexus 7 Tablet is an Android based tablet, actually running on Jelly Bean 4.1. For those of you who are used to Apple products, it can be a little bit of a learning curve getting used to the Android interface. My other half has Android on his phone, and because I have an iPhone, I find his cellphone a little bit less intuitive. That’s something to keep if mind if you’re considering moving from an iPad, or if you’re buying this for someone who may not be as computer savvy.

Price comparing:

For a price comparison, the prices I can see available elsewhere at online Canadian stores, in ascending order: $260 @ The Shopping Channel,  $265 @ Newegg, $265 @ Amazon, $270 @ MemoryExpress, $279 @ Staples, $279 @ CanadaComputers, $280 @ NCIX, $280 @ London Drugs, $280 @ Bestbuy, $322 @ TigerDirect.

So, as you can see, the price from Costco is a cut above the rest, at least $60 lower than the next cheapest online price! There’s a question over the first gen or second gen models, some of the above don’t clearly state which generation there is. The Costco model is the 2012 version.

There’s a micro USB port on this Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet. That’s something that I, as an iPad user, am jealous of. I don’t like how there are no portable data inputs on Apple devices… you either have to use a hard cable or some sort of cloud transfer system. With the micro USB slot on this device, you can pop in some portable media, copy or transfer anything you need, and away you go.

Once a membership has been purchased, you will then receive your Costco card in the mail along with a voucher code that can be redeemed for either a Bon Appétit or the Wayspa gift card.

Personally, I would totally go with the WaySpa gift card because I’m in a dire need of a good pampering and the great part is that they can be used at thousands of spas around the world. The Bon Appétit gift card, on the other hand, is redeemable at the following restaurants: Harvey’s, Swiss Chalet, Montana’s Cookhouse, Kelsey’s or Milestones.

While the Gold Star membership costs $55 for the year and allows you full shopping access to either their warehouse locations or online site, the Executive one is $110 and includes additional benefits like a annual 2% reward on purchases and deals on car rentals, credit card offers and residential telecommunications. Both memberships also come with a free spouse card.

For those of you on the fence about getting membership, I must say it’s totally worth it. I have been diligently renewing my Gold Star membership for a number of years now and always find fantastic deals. Just the other day, I snagged a couple of Tommy Hilfiger tops for less than $20 apiece.

Costco Canada: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline – $280 (Save $70)

Posted by on May 27, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Costco Canada: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline   $280 (Save $70)

I love trampolines! When I was a kid, it was like my life goal to have a trampoline in my backyard but renting an apartment has never been conducive to that dream. However, I could always get one for inside. Costco Canada is selling the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline 350i for only $279.99, saving you $70.

I did a little price comparing: little because there are not a lot of places in Canada that offer this adorable little trampoline. A secondary retailer on Amazon.ca is selling the exact model for $540.99 + $12.40 shipping (ouch!). More reasonably priced is the actual manufacturer. JumpSport themselves sells the Fitness Trampoline 350 for $349.99.

The trampoline measures 32.5″ jumping surface and can hold up to 250 lbs. It has a 16 gauge steel frame and comes with a handle bar for a greater variety of exercises. Included in your kit is 4-in-1 workout DVD to help you utilize your new trampoline to its fullest.

I am also sure that when you are not shedding some extra pounds on it, your kids will love to just bounce away to their little heart’s content. So it really is a workout machine and a toy all in one.

Shipping and handling charges are included in the cost.

Costco Canada: Garmin GPS Only $140

Costco has a fantastic deal on the Garmin nuvi 3490LMT GPS with lifetime maps. It is selling for $139.99 and sells for quite a bit more on other sites like Amazon, where it sells for $223, Tiger Direct, where it sells for $155 and ebay where it sells for $140 U.S. plus $40 shipping. As always, you’ll get this shipped free from Costco too.

While GPS systems can really be the bane of my existence, a good one can really be a lifesaver. This one seems have all the bells and whistles you need to get yourself in good time from point A to point B. These features include lane assist (because I hate being in the wrong lane when it is time to turn or merge), pedestrian navigation options, hands-free calling and ecoRoute, which calculates the most fuel-effiecient route.

This GPS machine also has an ultra-thin design, so you don’t mind adding it to your bag of technology instead of leaving it in your vehicle for potential thieves to take advantage.

There are so many features that this GPS has, I’ll let you read them yourself instead of listing them here. I will say the majority of the reviews are fantastic, and people like the lightweight design and that it responds quickly and accurately.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As usual, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping!

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

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

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

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

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

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

As usual, shipping is also absolutely free!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As usual, shipping is also absolutely free at Costco!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Shipping is also absolutely free.

Click here to sign up @ Costco.ca now

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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