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!

After all, I get to shop for groceries, electronics, furniture, and much more at Costco.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Costco Canada: Blendtec Professional Blender Only $390

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

Costco Canada: Blendtec Professional Blender Only $390

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

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

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

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

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

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

This review sums it up beautifully:

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

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

I have never owned a food sealing system before, but I can see why many people use them. When I’m wrestling with cling-wrap products in the kitchen, it’s never a pretty sight! I usually end up wasting more cling-wrap than I planned to (I’m just a little clumsy at times).

You can’t go wrong with that – especially if it costs $89.99 with free shipping!

I’ve listed a brief review of this Foodsaver GameSaver Bronze Vacuum Sealing System from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

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.

Check out this deal before it’s gone! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Costco also offers free shipping.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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