Tiger Direct Canada: Get $20 off your order of $100 or more

Hey there, Bargainmoosers! Tiger Direct is currently having a limited time promotion where you can get $20 off your order of $100 or more when you’re shopping online. That’s not a bad deal, folks! All you have to do is click on the promotional banner in the link below, and enter your email address. Tiger Direct will then send you your personalized coupon code. Keep in mind that Tiger Direct charges for shipping (which depends on the items that you’re purchasing).

Tiger Direct has a myriad of great electronics that you can choose from. They usually have some very decent prices as well! You can choose from many computers & tablets, cameras & camcorders, toys & games, TV & home theatre merchandise, and even office equipment & supplies.

There are some good deals currently available at Tiger Direct, including this Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S100 Intel Core i5 Touch Notebook Computer that’s currently on sale for $799.99 (this was previously retailing for $1299.99). A similar laptop is currently on Amazon’s American website for $1302.99 US. This is also one of the rare items on Tiger Direct’s website that qualifies for free shipping!

Now that Christmas is just around the corner (Halloween is going to be this Friday, people – that was fast), it may be time to consider doing some early holiday shopping. The best part about hunting for potential presents online is the fact that you don’t have to endure long, annoying line-ups that you’d usually have to deal with at retail locations! Plus, if you start shopping now, you won’t have to worry about stuff becoming out of stock (at least not as frequently). Don’t you hate when that happens?

I’ve listed a snippet of a review of the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga from a satisfied Lenovo customer below:

I have had the Thinkpad Yoga for two months now and it has exceeded my expectations. I am a college student and it does what I need and more. This product offers all the add-ons and feature you could ever want. Its absolutely amazing and I love it.

Check out this sale, my fellow Bargainmoosers! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Future Shop Canada: Samsung Gear Fit Fitness Tracker Band | Was $150 Now $90

Posted by on October 25, 2014 at 7:00 AM

Future Shop Canada: Samsung Gear Fit Fitness Tracker Band | Was $150 Now $90

Good morning, my fellow Bargainmoosers! If you’ve been looking for a way to keep track of your fitness goals while you’re on-the-move, then you should check out today’s deal at Future Shop. Normally retailing for $149.99, you can now get a Samsung Gear Fit for $89.99! You’re saving $60 in total, and this fitness tracker typically sells for $219.99 at The Source, and it’s $115 (plus shipping) on Amazon. It’s also currently sold out at Best Buy. Plus, when you purchase this Samsung Gear Fit at Future Shop, you’ll also qualify for free shipping! Whaddadeal!

The Samsung Gear Fit can help you keep track of your steps when you wear this electronic fitness band. It features a heart rate sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope, and you can also connect it to certain cell phones so you can also be notified about any calls or text messages that you’re receiving. You can learn more about this device by clicking on the link above.

This isn’t the first fitness tracker I’ve seen. My significant other owned a Fitbit, and really got a kick out of how it would keep track of her sleep patterns. She eventually sold it when we started using the Nintendo Fit Meter (it’s really a very handy device! I just wanted to get something that would track my steps, and eventually she fell in love with how simplistic and efficient the device is). However, this Samsung Gear Fit is one sleek looking device! I would have no qualms with wearing one of these, since it looks pretty cool. And you know I take myself very seriously (cough..cough).

I’ve included a brief review of this Samsung Gear Fit from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

I absolutely love this device. It allows me to see my notifications without having to have galaxy s4 right beside me at all times.It is also more accurate than the step counter on my phone.

Check out this deal before the Samsung Gear Fit is out of stock. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Staples Canada Printable Coupon: 10% Discount In Store

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

Staples Canada Printable Coupon: 10% Discount In Store

We do not often post just in store deals, but this one is such a nice little coupon! Receive 10% off anything in store at Staples Canada this weekend. By this weekend, I actually mean Friday and Saturday only.

This coupon actually has so few exclusions! You cannot use it on stamps, gift cards, self-serve copying (but maybe non-self serve?), computer rentals, phone cards, or Bose products. While I am somewhat sad about the Bose exclusion (I want one of their wireless speakers so badly), everything else is fair game. In store deals vary by city and province. My own Staples flyer had some rather paltry offerings I must say.

You want to know something that is not excluded? Apple. Yes, nowhere on the coupon is Apple products excluded from the 10% off. The entire category of laptops is also fair game so you can find an awesome deal on a laptop and then stack this coupon on top for an even better savings. That is how I bought my mother’s laptop actually! I found a base model for $50 off and then I had a printable coupon that saved me an extra $20 or so.

This coupon also does not exclude tablets or MP3 players or any of those other yummy pieces of technological ingenuity. Purchase a new headset, a new smart phone, or load up on office supplies while you are there.

Online and maybe in-store as well, the new Apple iPad Air 2 tablets are on pre-sale. You could always see if you can use the 10% off coupon code on a pre-sale. Frankly, you are paying up front for the device on one of the days the printable coupon is valid and it does not explicitly say that the coupon cannot be used against pre-sales. I assume you would end up fighting with the Staples store manager on this one. However, if you love the next best thing it might be worth a try. Getting 10% off a brand-new (not even technically released yet) iPad Air 2 would be awesome!

If you use the printable coupon, then please let me know what you manage to score with it especially if you manage to score a fantastic tech deal! I always love hearing about those.

Staples Canada reserves the right to limit quantities. For this and any other Staples coupons, visit the forum.

Awesome phone!! Awesome OS. As a former iPhone user I can say I’m thrilled with this phone. The OS is way more customizable which is great.

These coupon codes are only valid today, so take advantage of these savings while you still can. Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

HP Canada: HP H2800 Orange Headset $15 (Was $35)

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 1:30 PM

HP Canada: HP H2800 Orange Headset $15 (Was $35)

HP Canada is in the middle of four days of Flash Deals. Today they are offering a sweet HP H2800 Orange Headset for just $14.99 and free shipping, originally $34.99.

You save $20 and score a comfortable set of basic headphones to pair with your iPod, iPhone, or android device. The headset has an in-line microphone, headset controls for ease of communication, and is compatible with almost anything. The flat cord is tangle resistant. This headset comes with a two-year warranty so if anything goes wrong you can get it fixed or trade it in for a new pair.

I like the orange and white colour scheme. White always reminds me of Apple products because of those ads from several years ago that highlighted the white ear buds on brightly coloured backgrounds with blacked out people. The orange gives a nice pop of colour and is just fun.

The HP flash sale has some other nice deals as well. Today they are also offering an HP S9500 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker for just $69.99, originally $129.99. The speaker is all angles with a futuristic design that requires minimal space. At first glance, it looks like an open book standing on the long side of its pages. I assume the designers were going for a different look.

The wireless speaker is Bluetooth 2.1 enabled for connectivity of up to 10 m (33ft). Connect to Bluetooth enabled computers, tablets, Android devices, iPhones, and MP3 players like the Touch.

For sound output, enjoy the power of 40mm drivers with 80-decibel signal-to-noise ratio, with 6W and 20Hz power output. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery will give you up to eight hours of consecutive playtime at moderate volume before needing to recharge. The website does not mention how long it will take the device to fully charge. For a good size wireless Bluetooth speaker from a reputable brand this is one of the cheapest I have seen.

There are a couple of desktop computers on sale in this flash sale as well. Keep in mind that all these deals will expire at the end of today and new ones will pop up tomorrow. I suggest checking back tomorrow for the new deals as well, you may find something awesome.

HP Canada is currently offering free shipping and free returns across Canada. Depending upon what you buy, you can always try and combine one of these active HP coupons with your order.

Best Buy Canada: Insignia 64.5″ 1080p 120Hz LED TV | Was $1200 Now $900 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Best Buy Canada: Insignia 64.5 1080p 120Hz LED TV | Was $1200 Now $900 (EXPIRED)

Best Buy is having a FLASH sale for one day only on their Insignia 64.5″ 1080p 120Hz LED TV! It normally retails for $1199.99, and is now on sale for $999.99, but today’s FLASH sale allows customers to save an extra $100! Now you can purchase this huge television for $899.99 – that’s a great deal for a nearly-65-inch TV! You’ll also have to pay $49.99 for a scheduled delivery, since this is one huge product.

This Insignia 64.5″ 1080p 120Hz LED TV is huge! Not only will your movies, TV shows, and video games look amazing, but you’ll also be the envy of all your friends with this 64.5″ television! With this Insignia 64.5″ 1080p 120Hz LED TV, you can enjoy watching your Blu-Ray movies in 1080p, and in 120Hz.

I personally like the Insignia television brand. I think it’s high in quality and low in price, which is always a win with me. I currently have a 32″ Insignia LCD TV that I purchased back in 2009 (it was $525 at the time, which was a very decent price for a 32″ flatscreen TV), and it’s still working well! It also has a sleek exterior, which makes this more than just a “generic TV brand”.

If you wanted to purchase this Insignia 64.5″ 1080p 120Hz LED TV from Future Shop today, it would cost you $1199.99. I’ve included a brief review of a similar 55″ model of an Insignia LED TV from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

I purchased a 32″, 39″ & 48″ Insignia LED TVs and am very happy with all of them. The HD content shows look awesome. Connect a Sound Bar and enjoy even better sound. 

This may not be in stock for very long, so if you’re looking for a decent deal on a 64.5″ LED TV, then you should check out this deal! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Since it’s portable, it can make it that much easier and convenient for you to bring this to a friend’s place, or wherever you plan to go. It never hurts to have a sweet music source that’s easy to bring with you!

If you went to Future Shop to purchase this Monster ClarityHD Precision Micro Bluetooth Speaker, it would have costed $99.99, and it’s $79.99 on Amazon. I’ve included a brief review of this Monster ClarityHD Precision Micro Bluetooth Speaker from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

Impressive sound and very easy to pair with my PC and cell phone. Makes a great external PC speaker and cellphone speaker phone. Also really like the fact that it’s so compact.

The Source Canada: Open-Box Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16 MP Camera | Was $200 Now $80

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 6:00 PM

The Source Canada: Open Box Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16 MP Camera | Was $200 Now $80

Good evening, my fellow deal hunters! The Source currently slashed the price on their open-box Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera – normally selling for $199.99, you can now purchase this easy-to-use digital camera for $79.96! Your order will also qualify for free shipping! That’s always a nice bonus, right?

This Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera is loaded with great features – it has a 16mp 1/2.3-inch ccd sensor with a primary colour filter, it can film 720p hd videos, has an hdmi (mini) port, accepts sd/sdhc cards, and has a 30x wide angle optical zoom. This is a great camera for this price!

I’m not entirely satisfied with the camera on my cell phone, so I think it’s important to still have a decent digital camera that you can use during special events. When you’re going to be at a memorable get together with friends or your family, a sports event, or a wedding, you’ll want to use a camera that you can rely on. Plus, you’ll want to be able to take high-quality pictures, and you can certainly do that with this Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera.

On Amazon, this Fujifilm FinePix S4800 16MP Camera costs $169.99. If you were to purchase this camera from WalMart’s American website, it would cost you $199 US. I’ve listed an informative review of this camera from a customer of The Source below:

A little below in features of the newest cameras. Such as video quality at 720 not 1080. Zoom is not as powerful as newer models.
But it is below half the price of the current models out there and takes excellent quality pictures.

If you want to save some cash on a convenient 16MP camera that can also take videos, then you should definitely check out this deal before it’s gone. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

$50 Off The Asus Black 7″ 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet: Now $130 @ FutureShop

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 1:30 PM

$50 Off The Asus Black 7 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet: Now $130 @ FutureShop

For those of you on the lookout for a tablet but cannot quite stretch to paying the higher price tags on Apple iPads, consider the great deal on this little Asus Black 7″ 16GB MeMO Wifi Tablet which is currently on special offer at Futureshop Canada. They’ve knocked $50 off the original price of $179.99, bringing it down to only $129.99 with free shipping!

There are other colour options available in this Asus tablet, but only the black is available to order online at this price. If you want another colour, you could check out the stock at the Future Shop location nearest to you. Here’s a quite note on the specification of this tablet deal:

  • 7″ HD screen with 1280 x 800px  resolution
  • 16GB of built-in memory
  • 2MP HD front camera & 5 MP rear
  • Android 4.4
  • Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth

While 16GB isn’t huge for a tablet in terms of memory these days, this Asus tablet is excellent because it’s expandable up to 64GB by using a new micro SD card. If you need the extra on-board storage space, you’ve got that option down the line.

Also, the fact that this Asus tablet has got both front and rear cameras is a bonus – many of the lower price-point tablets only have one. This means that you can video chat with ease, changing the view when needed.

I did an online price comparison to see how good this deal really was. The Asus 7″ 16GB MeMO Pad Tablet With Wi-Fi comes in quite higher at most other stores – $160 @ Memoryexpress, $180 @ Best Buy, $198 @ Newegg, $160 @ The Source, $160 @ NCIX. So you can see it’s a truly sweet deal from Future Shop – $30 cheaper than the next best price from the competition.

Reviews seem mostly positive too, with many users commenting that it’s great for streaming video and various media. It sounds like it also has a great screen, with clear and sharp pictures. Overall, I think it’s a great buy for this price.

Brother HL2280DW Multi-Function Laser Printer $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Brother HL2280DW Multi Function Laser Printer $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Here’s a little dealio on the Brother HL2280DW Multi-Function Mono Laser Wireless Ethernet Printer from NCIX Canada. This laser printer was originally priced at $203.98, but you can pick it up for only $99.99 with free shipping, right now! That’s a great price for a handy laser printer.

The Brother HL2280DW printer is a mono coloured printer, meaning it will only give you black ink. Colour lasers are notoriously a LOT more expensive than this. If you’re needing a basic mono printer for your home office perhaps, then this is definitely a deal to consider. I’ve got a mono multi-function laser printer sitting right at my feet at this moment. I don’t use it an awful lot, but it is handy to have here when we need to print off boarding passes, the latest Groupon deal, or something like that. I’ve had my printer for a number of years and I’ve only ever had to replace the toner cartridge once.

As for a price comparison on this Brother HL2280DW multi-function printer, I’ve looked around the online competition in Canada and found it for sale at quite a number of other outlets. The next best price I can see that this printer is available is $146.66 @ Costco.ca, that’s with free shipping too. So you can see that the NCIX price is beating that by quite a bit, hence I am writing this post about it. Brother HL2280DW Multi Function Laser Printer $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

It’s great to see free ground shipping on items like this from NCIX. At some other sites, you can sometimes pay $20 to $40 just on shipping fees for a bulky item such as this. The free shipping from NCIX is what really makes this deal super-sweet, in my humble opinion.

I googled for HL2280DW reviews to see how this Brother printer performed for users. Of the 33 customer reviews on Amazon, 20 of those are rated with the full 5 stars, and the final score averages out at 4.3/5. That’s a very healthy review score. One positive example:

If you want a printer that just prints black and white and has a scanner this is a very good printer, I have had this for almost a month now and works very well!

Apparently, the wireless functionality of the printer is extremely useful too. That’s one thing I am missing on mine – I bought my printer before wireless functionality was commonplace. I really wish I had it! I’ll definitely be looking for the wireless features when I next upgrade my home office printer.

Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone Only $29.99 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop / BestBuy Canada (Half Price)

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 9:42 AM

Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone Only $29.99 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop / BestBuy Canada (Half Price)

If anyone out there is on the hunt for a small portable microphone to use with your computer or laptop, check out the deal on this Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone which is on offer from both Best Buy Canada and Futureshop. Originally priced at $59.99, you can grab it right now for half price, it’s down to only $29.99 with free shipping too!

The Blue Microphones Tiki is a portable USB microphone… which might be hard to tell from the image above. It looks more like some sort of fancy whistle! Anyway, the Tiki appears to be quite a smart advice, mimicking the intelligence of human hearing. One point in the description of this microphone particularly appealed to me:

…it can bring your voice to the forefront and minimizes competing background noise like typing.

That’s an excellent idea. When I am on Skype calls for work, I frequently hear people typing quite loudly on the other end. I wonder how loud my own typing must be.

There are only a few reviews on site, but they are positive. For example, B from Edmonton states:

AMAZING LITTLE THING!

Short and sweet, eh?

Well, if you just want a basic and budget-friendly microphone for some basic chatting or sound recording, then this could be ideal.

Price Comparison

The Blue Microphones Tiki Portable USB Microphone is on sale at many Canadian online retailers, so it’s easy to run a price comparison on this item. In order from lowest to highest: $60 @ Londondugs, Memoryexpress, Apple Store, $66 @ ComputerValley, PC-Canada, $70 @ Amazon, $72 @ NCIX.

You can clearly see that it’s a very hot price from the sister sites of Futureshop and Best Buy.

NCIX.com: Samsung 80W Sound Base $248 (Save $200) & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 17, 2014 at 3:00 PM

NCIX.com: Samsung 80W Sound Base $248 (Save $200) & Free Shipping

NCIX.com is selling the Samsung 80W HW-H600/ZC Sound Base for $247.99 with free shipping right now.

Now, to be fair, it seems like there is an entire orgy of sales on the Samsung sound base this weekend. Prices are similar across the board but that does not mean this is any less of a deal. Future Shop and Best Buy Canada both have this sound base on sale for $249.99 but Future Shop only has 23 left and Best Buy only has 18 left. As both those stores start their deals on Friday morning, I think it is significant that they are already down to low stock at this sale price. The Source is also selling the base at $249.99 but does not show their stock levels.

Either way, you save an extra couple dollars ($2!) by purchasing the sound base at NCIX instead of the competitors. Overall, you save around $200 on the base this week compared to any other week so no matter where you buy, now is the time to get it. I also compared the base with TigerDirect’s prices. They have the base on sale for $395.99. That is a big price difference.

Now, for why everyone who owns a TV needs something like this. This is a sound base, so you put it beneath your TV like a stand. The sound comes up from beneath your TV and fills the room far better than conventional television speakers. This one is equipped with Bluetooth allowing your TV to communicate wirelessly with the speaker (without the use of HDMI cables) and allowing you to control the speaker via your smartphone. You can also hard wire the sound bar into your TV if your current television is not Bluetooth compatible. At only 35mm thick, the bar is super-thin, yet it will hold up to 77lbs and fits most TVs up to 66″ big. As for features, this reviewer summed them up well:

  • Bluetooth — YES
  • NFC — YES
  • Anynet+ — YES
  • Audio Input — YES, 1 input
  • Optical Input — YES, 1 input
  • HDMI Input — YES
  • Surround Sound Expansion with 4 Sound Modes

You can use the Samsung sound base to not only watch movies with far better acoustics, but to also stream music from your smartphone, iPad, or other Bluetooth enabled audio device.

NCIX.com is offering free shipping on this unit right now. If they are out of stock when you check, then you can pick up the unit for a couple dollars more at a couple of the places I listed above as long as they still in stock.

Newegg Coupon Code: 10% Discount!

Posted by on October 17, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Newegg Coupon Code: 10% Discount!

Though Avigayil mentioned this coupon code in her Newegg post yesterday when she was writing about the hot deal on the  (now expired) external battery, I think this 10% Newegg coupon code should be highlighted in a post of its own. It’s VERY rare to see a coupon code which works on almost everything site-wide at Newegg, for an extra discount!

Click here to use the Newegg coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: NEWEGG5TH
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expires: 20th October 2014

The above coupon code should work on almost everything on site, but you can only claim a maximum discount of $25 on your order. They’ve set that limit on the coupon code. It’s to celebrate the Newegg anniversary sale – their 5th anniversary.

Newegg has a whole section here dedicated to some discount deals on the refurbished electronics. However, I tested the 10% coupon code out on a few of the items and it didn’t seem to work. The coupon code may not apply to refurbs but I couldn’t find any specific terms and conditions to confirm this detail.

If the coupon code doesn’t apply to something, you will see this message in your cart:

ERROR There is an issue with promo code NEWEGG5TH. Please check promo code again or contact customer service.

It doesn’t mean something is wrong with your order or with the promo code, it just means the items isn’t eligible for a discount.

Back in September, Margarita mentioned the deal on Newegg Premier – this is their free shipping service. If you signup to Newegg Premier, you can get a free 30 day trial, in which everything will be shipped to your for free. If you choose to continue with the plan, it costs $59.99 per year and almost everything on site will be shipped to you for free. If you’re a regular buyer from Newegg.ca, this is definitely worth considering. And even if you’re not that regular of a buyer, you could take the 30 day trial when you’re placing your order to save on those shipping fees. They can be quite high on some items, so free shipping is a super bonus.

Dell Canada is selling the LG’s 32″ LN530B HD 720p LED TV for just $229.99, originally $349.99. You will also receive free shipping on your television from Dell.

I would not have even dreamed of a brand name 32″ flat screen HDTV for under $300 a few years ago, and yet here they are. I know you can get no-name versions for just under $200 these days, but I would spend the extra $30 or so for a brand such as LG.

Price comparing this unit was very hard as so few places in Canada carry it. I finally found it at two places. Through the Amazon marketplace, you can buy the same model TV for $359.93. Newegg Canada also sells this television. The LG 32LN530B is on sale for $279.99 with $21.99 shipping at Newegg.ca.

This is a great price and undercuts the price of the same size sale-priced Sony by $70. We recently blogged about that TV. The LG is a great deal for those who want brand name, but want to keep most of their cash in their pocketbooks.

Features:

The television is a backlit LED with 720p HD. It also features something called ‘MHL’ that allows you to charge, display, and control your Smartphone on the big screen. I assume this only works with android phones but I would be curious to learn more about it as it sounds like a great feature.

As for ports, the TV has:

  • 2 HDMI
  • 1 USB
  • 1 RF
  • 1 Component
  • 1 Composite
  • 1 Digital Audio Out

I find two HDMI ports the bare minimum a television should have these days, as you want one for your PVR and one for your console. Our television has six HDMI ports, which sounds great, but we never use more than three.

There are a couple negative reviews from people who quite obviously got lemon TVs. For the most part, the TV has excellent reviews averaging a 4.5/5 eggs on Newegg. One reviewer said:

Bought this for my father for father’s day. He had an older TV that was not a flat screen and was not high-def. After setting it up for him, it looks darn good, especially compared to his previous TV.

Other people use them for their spare room and many people use this as their primary television. The price is excellent for this size of television with HD capabilities. This television is part of an up to 50% off sale that Dell currently has.

Newegg Canada Coupon: Anker 12000mAh External Battery Just $34 + $6 Shipping (EXPIRED)

Newegg Canada Coupon: Anker 12000mAh External Battery Just $34 + $6 Shipping (EXPIRED)

I have mentioned my love for external batteries before as they are absolute lifesavers. Newegg Canada currently has a wicked deal on this Anker 2nd Gen Astro3 12000mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger with PowerIQ Technology. Originally $52.99, the battery is on sale for $37.99. However, if you use Newegg’s new coupon code NEWEGG5TH for 10% off, the battery comes down to just $34.19 + $5.99 for shipping.

Now, I know you are eying up that shipping price and wondering if you really have to pay it. There are two ways you can get out of paying shipping and thus get the external battery for cheaper.

  1. If you live near Mississauga Ontario, you can pick up your order at their warehouse.
  2. Sign up for the 30-day free trial of Newegg Premier and receive shipping free.

There you go, you could hypothetically get this battery for $34 and free shipping if you choose one of the above options. If I did not already own two Anker batteries, I would be signing up for that free trial right now and ordering myself this one.

The sale price is only on the white colour as black is still full price. I price compared with Amazon.ca who sells them for $53.99 right now. Even with paying shipping, you are saving $14 on the price of this external battery charger. Honestly, to get 12000mAh for around $40 is incredible. Unlike cheap battery chargers that lose around 35% capacity, Anker batteries have been tested to only lose around 15 – 20% over time.

I have a 13000mAh external battery from Anker and I LOVE it. It is the first thing I pack when I leave on a trip because it is the most vital thing I am bringing. Need a map? GPS? To call 911? This battery pack has your back.

Now, the coupon code above will work on almost anything on the Newegg website. It is rare that we find a coupon code from Newegg without a minimum purchase requirement so please take full advantage of this. You will not see another coupon like it from them for some time. I highly recommend you also buy the Anker 40W 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger in either black or white for just $22.49 after coupon and discounts (originally $49.99) plus $5.99 shipping. Amazon Canada sells those for $35.99 right now. I own one and it is very useful.
