Dell Canada: Upgraded Inspiron 15 For $549.99 (Save $109)

Posted by on June 16, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Dell Canada: Upgraded Inspiron 15 For $549.99 (Save $109)

Looking for a new computer, but the base models are just not cutting it for you? Pick up this upgraded Inspiron 15 (Non-Touch) with 1 Year In-Home Service Plan included for just $549.99 (was $658.99).

This computer comes with a 4th Generation Intel Core™ i5 Processor instead of the standard i3 processor. This is a huge upgrade in speed that you will certainly notice. Most computers around this price range are being sold with i3 or equivalent processors with equal stats or i5+ processors with smaller hard drives and less memory. This Dell computer has a 750 GB hard drive (opposed to the standard 500 GB at this price range) and comes with 6GB of RAM.

This is the non-touch model. The touch model allows you to handle the screen as if it were a tablet. However, this is the more traditional laptop model.

The one year in home service plan is worth $59 a year and gives you the added benefit of in home service after remote diagnosis in about one to two days after an error is confirmed. I am sure this is restricted to cities or larger populated areas of Canada. I could certainly see this being very useful as next month I am going to be dealing with Dell over my computer’s refusal to acknowledge its own charging cord, thus, it has stopped charging the battery. I know I will have to send my entire computer in, which is going to be an absolute pain and take forever. Thankfully, I bought an extended warranty.

This laptop comes with Windows 8, so if you have not transitioned over yet there will be a learning curve. I bought a laptop for my mother with Windows 8 on it and it took her a while to get used to it.

This 15″ laptop is a good balance between speed and space. A step up from the base model, you get a faster processor, amble memory and hard drive space, and the standard SD slot for a good price. I highly recommend signing up for the free Dell Advantage program so that you will receive 5% of your purchase back in Dell rewards. When it comes to 5% back on the price of a laptop: that is some significant cash. You could use it to buy a case, mouse, or anything else that tickles your fancy.

As per usual, receive free shipping on all orders with Dell Canada.

Dell Canada: Toshiba Portable Bluetooth Speaker $19.99 (Save $50)

Posted by on June 13, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Dell Canada: Toshiba Portable Bluetooth Speaker $19.99 (Save $50)

Dell Canada has discounted the Toshiba Portable Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone in white by $50 down to just $19.99 with free shipping.

Let’s do a little price comparing. The speaker is $69.99 at Staples, $39.99 + $7.34 shipping at, and it is on sale for $19.99 at as well, but you will not get free shipping unless you spend $25 or more, so Dell has the better deal.

If you are playing your music at approximately 75% volume level, you will receive eight hours of life out of this powerful little portable speaker. It has a built-in Bass Radiator to improve the quality of your music. The speaker connects via bluetooth to your smart phone or tablet so you can use it as a speaker without any wires or docking required. What makes this speaker extra special is the built in microphone: you can use this device to talk to your friends and family instead of holding your phone to your ear or using your phone’s speakerphone. If your phone’s speakerphone is anything like mine, it isn’t that great.

Built right onto the unit are external controls so you do not need to go back to your phone to change your music or increase volume. The following controls are included:

  • Volume Up / Volume Down
  • Play / Pause
  • Skip Forward / Skip Backward
  • Answer Call / End Call
  • Bluetooth / Aux In (can use a cable or Bluetooth)
  • On / Off

You can physically connect your device to the speaker but reviews say that the Bluetooth connection produces better quality than hard-wiring your device in.

Unlike other inexpensive speakers, you do not need to buy new batteries for this device. It has a built in rechargeable battery and comes with charging cable.

Reviews are split for this unit, with some saying it is not high quality enough, and others saying that for the size and price of the unit it is fantastic. You just have to keep in mind that this device is about the size of a hockey puck and is only costing you $20, so do not be expecting Bose quality sound out of it. I think this reviewer on Amazon sums it up pretty well:

Overall this is a good portable unit that has excellent battery life and is a good way to try out a Bluetooth speaker with little cash outlay to see if you will use it (assuming on-sale price). At full price there are better options available. I would NOT use this in a noisy environment or as a replacement speaker for built in laptop speakers – you need to get a larger device in those applications.

This device is best paired with your iPad or smart phone.

Dell Canada: TrendNet 5-port Gigabit GreenNet Switch Only $16 (was $35)

Posted by on June 3, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Dell Canada: TrendNet 5 port Gigabit GreenNet Switch Only $16 (was $35)

Dell Canada has the TrendNet 5-port Gigabit GreenNet Switch (TEG-S50G) on sale for $15.99, when it was originally $34.99.

There are several different models of these, so for price comparison you need to watch the model number (which I included above).

I price compared this unit with a few stores to make sure this was a good deal. The TrendNet TEG-S50G is $28.99 + $9.99 shipping @, $27.99 + $14.25 shipping @, $29.99 + shipping @ Canada Computers, and $34.93 @ You can easily see that Dell is absolutely rocking this deal at $16 with free shipping.

This little gadget is a five-port switch, which not only provides high bandwidth when you need it, but also reduces energy consumption by up to 70%. That is why it is a “GreenNet” switch: for the environmentally conscious office or just for the office that is trying to cut expenses. It is also a great tool for a home office that carries multiple users. Rather than have a switch with high-energy consumption, spend $16 and get a good switch that will save you money in the end.

As an added bonus, the switch is made of metal, thus it is durable and should stand the test of time and abuse. Just try not to wheel a chair over it (while you are in the chair). There are a couple product reviews and both are very positive. Here is the latest review:

This switch will automatically detect connection speed, and doesn’t discriminate over cable type (cross/straight thru) since it has auto MDIX. I was VERY pleasantly surprised by the quality. This one and the 8 port often go on sale so if it does, scoop it up!

I checked out the reviews on because they tend to be the biggest database of product reviews you can find. On there this device has 650 reviews with 4.6/5 stars. People absolutely love the device and most the comments say that it “just works,” “requires minimal setup,” and they have never needed to reset the router. I am jealous because I end up resetting my router several times a month: it is so lousy.

While Dell says that they are temporarily out of stock, you can still order this device and it will be shipped as soon as it comes back in stock. So do not be surprised if there is a bit of a shipping delay: it is just such a good deal we could not resist posting about it.

Dell Canada: Watch Dogs – Now $58 (PS4/ Xbox)

Posted by on June 2, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Dell Canada: Watch Dogs   Now $58 (PS4/ Xbox)

*Gasp*! Watch Dogs just came out and yet it’s already on sale at Dell Canada! This is particularly shocking because newly released games can usually only be had at their full regular price of $69.99 and yet you can get this action-adventure Ubisoft game for just $57.99.

Despite the fact that Dell is showing this game as being from $59.99 with a current discount of $2, this is actually the lowest price available right now as all of the other major competitors like Best Buy, Amazon and Future Shop all have it for close to $69.99.

Very similar to Grand Theft Auto, it’s a single-player game play that focuses on the story of a hacker who can manipulate the city by gaining access to surveillance cameras, controlling trains, stealing banking information etc. The player has to walk or drive around the city, performing a variety of missions with the goal of avenging the main character’s niece, which can either be played in antagonism of the law or by following the rules.

Overall, Watch Dogs has already generated a tremendous amount of positive reviews, which have praised the cleverly-designed missions and action graphics. In fact, even GameSpot has given it a rating of 8 out of 10, while IGN rated it 7.5 out of 10. These may not be full ratings of 10 out of 10 but they are still good enough to make me want to try this game. I’m particularly excited about the possibility of hacking the city and going against the law. Plus, Ubisoft also has a really good track record for created enthralling games with notable titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Batman, Far Cry, Just Dance, Prince of Persia, Rayman, Resident Evil 4, and many others. In fact, they have also produced more than 30 Tom Clancy games like Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell, with numerous instalments of each.

Father’s Day is coming up quick but it isn’t just a special occasion for your own father as Watch Dogs could make a great gift for a spouse who has just become a new daddy. Dell Canada: Watch Dogs   Now $58 (PS4/ Xbox)  But hurry because this awesome deal expires soon and you won’t even have to pay shipping fees as Dell always offers free shipping.

What about you Moosers? Would you pick to play for or against the law?

4 Pack Panasonic Eneloop XX Rechargeable Batteries only $14.99 & Free Shipping @

Posted by on June 1, 2014 at 2:30 PM

4 Pack Panasonic Eneloop XX Rechargeable Batteries only $14.99 & Free Shipping @

I’ve never seen these Eneloops before – a different product than the white-coloured Eneloops we usually post on Bargainmoose. These are a 4 pack of the Panasonic Eneloop High Capacity AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries, and they’re down $10 – from $24.99 to only $14.99 with free shipping from right now.

In price comparing, I’ve found the same pack of batteries for $25 @ Amazon, $25 @ Henrys, $25 @ CanadaComputers, $37 @ Hookbag, but I can’t see them at many other online stores.

One aspect that differentiates these high capacity Eneloops over regular batteries is their ability to hold their charge. It says that these Panasonic Eneloop XXs  hold up to 75% of their charge for one year of non-use… whereas regular rechargeable batteries apparently lose 1% of their energy each day. That’s a fact that I was not aware of!

If you’re interested in buying these Panasonic Eneloop rechargeable batteries, make sure that you read the specification, and also the specification of your battery charger, to make sure they will be compatible.

If you don’t yet have a stock of Eneloop rechargables, then it’s about time you got set up with one! Why not consider one of these starter packs – either the set of 8x AAs or AAAs for only $19.99 from Dell. Just note that those batteries are the 1,900 mAh model, which can be recharged up to 1,500 times. The newer generation of Eneloops actually have a longer life-span and can hold more charges… but for the average home user, these are totally fine.

It’s such a good idea to have a ton of rechargeable batteries in your house. I find that the more children I have and the more the years pass, the more devices come in to my house which need filling with power. I have to juice up those talking teddies, musical pianos, light-up aquariums, flashing pirate swords, night lights, bubble machines; the list just goes on and on! It’s amazing the amount of batteries I go through now, so I’m glad I’ve stocked up on Eneloops and never have to buy regular batteries any more.

Dell Canada: Projector Only $300 (was $391)

Posted by on May 30, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Dell Canada: Projector Only $300 (was $391)

Dell is having a great sale on right now and one item that really stood out to me was the 1210S projector, which is $91 off, now only $299.99.

I think a projector is a great accessory to have, whether you have a business or not. We had one, which was well used, and eventually it broke (not a Dell brand). We used to watch movies in our basement and even in our driveway. The kids loved it! My husband built a makeshift screen out of a sheet and some wood, although you don’t have to be that fancy. We had a “driveway drive-in” and invited lots of neighbourhood kids; it was a blast. Another time we had a video dance party in the basement.

Other than fun uses, projectors also have a functional use. This projector has on-screen navigation, a small remote control, and dual VGA-in connectors so you can switch presenters. On top of that, the lamp life is up to 5000 hours, you can add a safety and security password feature, and it consumes very little energy with its standby mode.

I tried to price compare, but found it difficult as every model is different. I know this model is the cheapest you’ll get it around. I also noticed that other projectors were quite a bit more expensive. This could mean they have more features, but if you are looking for a good quality, inexpensive Dell projector, you’ve come to the right place. It will also ship for free!

PNY 128GB Turbo Flash Drive only $49.99 @ Dell Canada

Posted by on May 21, 2014 at 5:30 PM

PNY 128GB Turbo Flash Drive only $49.99 @ Dell Canada

If you’re looking for an awesome flash drive to store your large files, such as photos, videos, or music, Dell Canada is offering $40 off of PNY 128GB USB 3.0 Turbo Flash Drives. Regularly priced at $89.99, getting this flash drive for $49.99 is definitely a great deal.

Featuring 128GB of storage, these flash drives from PNY offer tons of space for your large files. And with its USB 3.0 port, you’ll be able to transfer your files quickly and painlessly. I did some price comparisons to check if this was really a good deal. BestBuy has the same flash drive for $79.95 and is currently sold out, and Canada Computers and Electronics had it for $59.88 before taxes in-store, so you’re saving by ordering from Dell.

My order came to $56.49, including taxes, and I had the convenience of shopping online—rather than having to run out to the store. I also liked Dell’s variety of different payment options, such as PayPal, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or even Dell financing for monthly payments, which made ordering online a breeze. You can also click on the Live Chat as you’re shopping to get some help from a Dell associate.

Shipping is also always free from Dell, which is a very nice bonus on a great deal such as this.

Dell Canada: Panasonic Eneloop Charger & 12 Batteries Only $25

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

Dell Canada: Panasonic Eneloop Charger & 12 Batteries Only $25

Dell Canada is having a huge 72-hour sale on right now and one of the best deals I found was on the Panasonic Eneloop charger kit with eight AA batteries and four AAA batteries. It is now selling for $24.99, with a regular price of $44.99, saving you a whopping $20 on this item.

Rechargeable batteries are notoriously expensive, mainly because they last so much longer than regular batteries. They are definitely a good investment, it is just the investing part that hurts at first. So, when deals like this come along with a charger and all these batteries, you really do need to jump at the opportunity.

I’ve read a bit about Eneloop and how the batteries last for a long time. People absolutely love Eneloop batteries! If you want to know why they are so good, read this article from the Wire Cutter, which explains why they are the best. As for price comparisons, I looked around and found a pack of four AAs at Amazon for $19.78 on sale. You are only paying $5 more for eight extra batteries and a charger.

I’m sure we all have many devices for which we need rechargeable batteries, like television converters, kid’s LeapPads, digital cameras and so much more. This is a great buy, and could even be a practical Father’s Day gift for dear old Dad.

As another perk, you’ll get free shipping with any order from Dell.

Dell Canada: 1TB External Hard Drive $59.99 (Save $30)

Posted by on May 13, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Dell Canada: 1TB External Hard Drive $59.99 (Save $30)

Whenever 1TB hard drives get around this price we certainly like to blog about them. Pick up the Dell 1TB External Hard Drive for only $59.99, saving you $30 off the original price of $89.99.

Keeping in mind that Dell Canada offers free shipping with no minimum, this is a good deal as what you see (+tax) is what you pay.

This is pretty close to your standard external hard drive – except it is portable. Meaning it is thinner, lighter, and can go with you when you travel instead of stay at home on a shelf collecting dust. If your computer crashes while you are traveling, your backup all the way back home is not going to do you any good is it?

The hard drive features fast USB 3.0 connectivity and is simply powered via USB: no power cable required. Just connect the hard drive to your computer and go: simple.

If you are in a rush then this hard drive isn’t for you. It will get shipped, but currently Dell is estimating 3+ weeks for it to head from their warehouse to you. They probably need to still assemble it or something (or maybe they lost the box).

Dell Canada: Up To $670 Off LG TVs

Posted by on May 7, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Dell Canada: Up To $670 Off LG TVs

Dell has a fantastic deal on right now on LG TVs, with up to $670 off select ones.

There are also a number of accessories on sale now for this TV event. My husband is looking for a new TV for after we move as we will actually have a finished basement in our new house. Right now we only have one TV for the five of us and while it isn’t usually a big deal, there are some times when you’d just like to relax and watch an adult movie, but you can’t because Sesame Street is on. My family aren’t the hugest TV watchers, but on rainy days or tired evenings, we do like to sit and relax with some boob tube. The kids also like to play video games, and they can get awful loud, so I’d like it away from my main living space. So a new TV it is. I will be sure to forward him this blog post and see what he’d like to check out.

If we wanted to go really deluxe, we could look at this LG 55-inch LED Smart 3D HDTV with six glasses. I know the kids would love it and the savings are enormous right now. It was originally $1699.99 and now only $1029.99.

I don’t think we want to spend over $1000, but we still want the great savings like $570 off this LG 55-inch LED 1080P HDTV. It also saves us money as it is an Energy Star qualified TV, so my hydros bill won’t go up with two televisions on. This one was originally $1299.99 and now only $729.99 – a great price for a new and large TV.

As an added bonus, Dell offers free shipping on anything you buy.

Dell Canada: C2G HDMI Cables Bundle Now $12 (Was $30)

Posted by on April 25, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Dell Canada: C2G HDMI Cables Bundle Now $12 (Was $30)

Pick up this C2G Value Series high speed HDMI Cables with ethernet bundle on the cheap for only $11.99 with free shipping, originally $29.99.

The bundle includes two 2 meter cables and one 1 meter cable. The 2 meter cables are:

  • Full 1080p resolution
  • HDMI High Speed with Ethernet ATC category 2 certified
  • HDMI-CEC system control compatibility

The 1 meter cable is:

  • Bottom of Form Top of Form Full 1080p resolution
  • 3D
  • High bandwidth (340 MHz/10.2 Gbps)
  • HDMI-CEC system control compatibility

They are a bit different so I thought I would include those descriptions for anyone who understands all that. What I understand is that the second cable is compatible with a 3D TV whereas the two cables above it are only compatible with full HD.

You do get three cables in total for $12 which works out to $4 a cable. Very good deal in my books because HDMI cables can be so expensive if you try to purchase one in store. I remember looking for one to connect the computer to the TV to use the TV as an external display. We now have three HDMI cables and I don’t think any of them were as cheap as this bundle. Get it!

Enjoy free shipping on any order with Dell Canada.

Dell Canada: Laptop or Desktop for Under $400

Dell Canada: Laptop or Desktop for Under $400

Need to replace your clunky old laptop with the blue screen of death or need a new desktop on a budget? Dell Canada has two deals on right now where you can buy a brand new desktop or a laptop for under $400 each.

First of all let me introduce you to my little friend the Inspiron 3000 Small Desktop. Regularly priced at $449.99, this computer is now on sale for $399.99. He comes with 4GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Premium for all of us who abhor Windows 8 *shudder*. The design is super compact so it won’t take up a lot of space in your home. One of my favourite features is the multi-media card reader, which I use on my computer all the time when transferring photos from my DSLR. As per usual, monitor and accessories must be purchased separately if you don’t already have them.

The second fantastic deal is on this little Inspiron 15 (non-touch) laptop. Originally $379.99, it is now down to $349.99. The next time my mother does in her current laptop she is totally getting one of these. This is the perfect basic laptop for anyone needing to use a word processor, social media, and email. It also features 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive so, in my humble opinion, it is better than the desktop because it has its own built in monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Dell Canada: Adventure Backpack Only $20 (Was $60)

Dell has a fantastic deal on a backpack carrying case for your laptop. It is now only $19.99, from $59.99, which means you save a whopping $40.

Fitting a 15.6 inch laptop, this bag has everything you need to get to work or school and back. It is a sporty and functional backpack with lots of storage, including room for clothing or other gear and even an umbrella. There are large outside pockets and small zippered pockets. The padding protects your precious items like your sunglasses or phone or laptop from scratching or being damaged.

The straps are ergonomic and there is a mesh fabric on the back panel so you don’t get all hot and sweaty carrying it. It is water resistant, so no need to worry if you did forget that umbrella, your items inside will stay nice and dry.

I think this bag looks really good too and the reviewer who rated this bag says it is one of the best he has ever seen. Now that’s a glowing review!

Even better, your order will ship for free too!
