Future Shop Canada: Madcatz Ghost Recon Wireless PS3 Gamepad Just $5.97

Future Shop Canada: Madcatz Ghost Recon Wireless PS3 Gamepad Just $5.97

Future Shop Canada has a great Canada Day Sale happening with some pretty incredible deals. One of the better deals I found was for a Playstation accessory. They have the Madcatz Ghost Recon wireless gamepad for PlayStation 3 on sale for just $5.97!

This model gets a 3.7 star rating out of 5 which is pretty good.  It comes with a rechargeable battery and features a quick-fire trigger, and backlit stick modules. The precision aim gives you sniper like accuracy when looking down the scope.  It is a great wireless gamepad for any gamer.

There were some great customer reviews for it and they are as recent as June 2014.

I’m a FPS player and this controller is perfect for sniping or ambushing 5/5 for me- Hugo Laperriere

This is the best thing for call of duty ghost players this well improve your gamer skills. sorry about spelling!!!! 5 stars.- NHLboss

Even though it got great reviews and I thought the price was excellent, it did not show the regular price it was sold for at Future Shop Canada. I wanted to do some price comparisons with this gamepad and I could only find the exact model at one place.  Over at Amazon Canada they had the same PS3 gamepad on sale for $39.99 and it was $64.99 at regular price.  Additionally, they only have one left in stock.

Other than that, they had some similar wireless gamepads at other stores that were good price comparisons. The only wireless gamepad that Walmart Canada had was priced at $59.93 and over at Staples Canada, the cheapest wireless gamepad was $48.21.  In fact, no store that I checked out even came close to the low Future Shop Canada price of $5.97.

When you spend $20 or more on almost everything, you will get free shipping at Future Shop.

Best Buy Canada: Philips 50″ LED Smart TV Now $599.99 | Was $899.99

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

Best Buy Canada: Philips 50 LED Smart TV Now $599.99 | Was $899.99

Best Buy Canada has an awesome Canada Day sale starting today with t a tone of great deals.  One of those deals is on an item that my husband has been wanting for a while now.  You can get a Philips 50″ LED Smart TV for just $599.99 during this awesome Canada Day sale.

It will be this low price for just 4 days only.  After this sale is done, it will go back up to the original price of $899.99, which means that this deal will save you a whopping $300 on the TV. The same TV is on sale for $649.99 at Future Shop right now.

This TV has it all.  It has a USB port gives you a direct connection to flash drives and other devices, it has WirelessConnect that lets you explore unlimited internet access on your TV, and it even has HDMI x 3 that lets you connect to high definition monitors, next gen game consoles and other devices.  It is perfect for gamers or the family that likes to watch movies on a big screen as well.

It is an ENERGY STAR 6.0, which means it will help reduce the normal energy it spends to help assist with your energy bills. When the title says “Smart TV” it actually means it!

This deal is so hot, it is sold out to delivery in Alberta but if you live in any of the other provinces; you will still be able to get it while supplies last.

This item will have a shipping charge of $55 because of the sheer size of it.  This is standard for electronics and items that weigh a lot.  If you consider that you are saving $300 on the regular cost though, it is still a great deal even when you have to pay for the cost of shipping.

Walmart Canada: $40 Off 16GB iPad Air – Now $478

Posted by on June 29, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Walmart Canada: $40 Off 16GB iPad Air   Now $478

Looking for a new tablet? Walmart Canada is offering $40 off the 16GB iPad Air. Originally $518, the iPad Air is now on sale for $478 in either silver or space grey.

I would like to first point out that Walmart’s starting price is two dollars cheaper than most other websites, including Apple.ca. Apple has the iPad Air 16GB listed at $519 and both Future Shop and Best Buy have the same device listed for $519.99. Compared with these stores, you are saving $41 off Apple’s price and $42 off FS and BB’s price.

I really do not have to say why this is a deal: iPads go neither on sale very often nor for very high of a discount. Usually, base models (16GB) might have $20 taken off them and then the discounts goes up as the size and price rises. However, if you are after an iPad on a budget – it is often not budget friendly to go for a larger sized iPad just for the bigger discount. Either way you seem to be spending the same amount of money. Thus, it is best to buy the base models when they go on sale. This deal is also great for those averse to buying refurbished: you can still buy the brand new electronics you love for less.

The iPad Air has a 9.7″ touchscreen display, 64-bit A7 processor, Wi-Fi, iOS 7 OS, dual facing cameras, and an aluminum uni-body for extra durability. With access to the iTunes App store, you really are never bored when you have an iPad. Load your device up with productivity apps, games, music, videos, and more. Many apps are free, and sometimes you can find fantastic paid apps on sale as well.

Incredibly, the iPad Air only weighs one pound! Once you hold this baby in your hand, you will think all the others weigh a ton. I have never owned an iPad Air but my iPad 2 is really threatening to terminate its services lately so it will be on my list of tablets to feel up when the replacing needs to occur.

As per usual, you will receive free shipping from Walmart Canada. You can also put in your postal code and see if your local store has any in stock. If they do, then you might want to pick one up in store if you are in a hurry to get one in your hands.

Canon PowerShot S200 Digital Camera was $320 now $180 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 22, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Canon PowerShot S200 Digital Camera was $320 now $180 @ Amazon.ca

If you’re in the market for a new point-and-click digital camera, there’s a neat deal happening at Amazon.ca on this black Canon PowerShot S200 Digital Camera. Originally priced at $319.99, you can currently pick it up for only $179.99 with free shipping to your home.

One reason that I choose to write about this deal was because of the price comparison. It’s much more expensive at many other well-known online Canadian retailers, with the next best online price being $237.59 @ Newegg Canada. I did spot it for a bit cheaper, coming in at $215.22 from CameraCanada.com, but I don’t have any experience of this store and I’m not too aware of its general reputation.

The Canon PowerShot S200 Digital Camera seems to be a fairly basic model, with a 10.1MP image resolution, 5x optical zoom, and 720p HD video. While browsing through the images of this Canon camera on Amazon, one said that it’s “YouTube ready.” I noticed this little camera has wifi capabilities – that’s a very handy feature. You can upload your images and videos when you are out and about. That’s something lacking in my own digital SLR camera and a feature I wish I had too.

As for the camera itself, the style of it on the front is pretty standard – it’s nothing fancy to look at, it actually looks very minimalist. On the back however, I like the fact that the viewscreen is really large in comparison to the device – it’s a 3” LCD screen. I’ve had cameras in the past with tiny viewscreens on the back, the screen on this Canon digital camera takes up the majority of the real estate there.

I had a bit of a google for reviews and they’re quite scarce, I often got hits for an older model of camera with the same name, from back in 2002. I couldn’t find many reviews of this exact model… please drop us a line in the comments below if you’ve had a good or bad experience with this camera.

Amazon Canada: 70% Off SanDisk Cruzer 64GB Flash Drive

Posted by on June 20, 2014 at 11:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 70% Off SanDisk Cruzer 64GB Flash Drive

You do not want to miss this great deal at Amazon Canada: save 70% on a SanDisk Cruzer 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. Originally $99.04, the 64GB flash drive is now on sale for $29.99 with free shipping.

I found the same exact model at Tiger Direct Canada for $51.99 + shipping. There is also a Glide model offered which has the same capacity (64GB) and most of those are running $64+. Compared to the price of a 64GB flash drive in other brands as well, this one certainly takes the cake.

This flash drive gives you massive digital space in a portable product. Drop files, PowerPoint projects, images, and even videos onto this device and then pop it into your pocket for on the go use. It is easy to bring all the extra files you need with you while traveling or on business trips. Are you going to visit the relatives? Load this flash drive up with family photos and home movies to share while you are visiting.

The reviews generally agree that for the size, this is an fantastic price. The only downside seems to be that the flash drive is a bit slow compared to a USB 3.0 flash drive. However, it is almost universally agreed that the trade-off of speed for low cost is worth it. One reviewer said:

Easy to use, no setup required. I put 30 gigs on this and it took 1 hour. Not the fastest..but fast enough. If it was faster then i’d give 5 stars but overall, a very good product..especially for the price. Why anyone would pay retail at bestbuy / futureshop i have no idea…

That pretty much sums up most people’s opinions on the product. The SanDisk Cruzer flash drive has garnered an average of 4.3/5 stars with 163 reviews overall.

This would also be a great option for backing up important files when you do not have access to your large external hard drive. I have had two computer hard drives fail on me, so I am somewhat paranoid (okay, I am very paranoid) about this computer’s hard drive dying sometime. It would be a comfort to me to have a recent backup of all my current files and notes just in case it does decide to give me the *tick* *tick* *tick* of death. There is nothing like losing all your notes a few days before final exams.

Because the flash drive costs over $25, it will ship free.

Who wants a great freebie?  Right now you can get a great one from Origin.com with no purchase necessary. Get a free download of the game Peggle for your Mac or PC. Just search for the game using the search bar to find it.

Personally I have never heard of this game but even if it’s not then best game you have ever played, its totally free so who cares really!  Peggle did however win a dozen of awards and msnbc.com calls it one of the “Top 5 most addictive video games of all time!” so it is definitley worth the free download.

This game is a blend between skill and luck and it has 55 different levels to keep you interested. You can play against friends or you can play against the computer.  It also has 10 different powers, 75 Grand Master challenges and some amazing art work in it.

This puzzle game is normally priced at $4.99 so not a bad little freebie to get. Even though I don’t often play games on my computer, I do get these deals for down times (not that I have many being a mom Free PC/Mac Download of Peggle (was $4.99) from Origin.com ) I travel sometimes and bring my computer and having some games to pass the time is perfect.

I was checking out the fine print to make sure you could use this coupon on everything including some of their clearance deals and there are no exclusions!  You can use it on anything site wide whether it be regular price, clearance or on sale.  You can even use it on bundles, which is normally an exclusion.

One of the things I love about Leap Frog products is that they are both educational, which is important to parents, and fun for kids. I often give their products as birthday gifts and Christmas gifts because they are a sure fire hit with the kids and parents as well.

I suggest you start shopping in the sale section. They have a ton of items on sale for up to 55% off the regular prices already.  Add this coupon at the checkout for an additional $10 or $50 or more and you can save yourself a lot of money!

I found these LeapPad2 gel skins that were $12.99 on sale for just $5.20.  Something like this would make a great little stocking stuffer or gift.

As a huge bonus, you will not have to add anything for the cost of shipping.  The coupon will also give you free shipping, but if you are spending less that the $50 minimum to use the coupon, you will still get a deal.  Leap Frog Canada has a promotion on right now that will get you free shipping with any order.

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 Newegg.ca, and it is on sale for $19.99 at Amazon.ca 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.

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.

Chapters Canada: $30 Off Cookoo Smart Watch – Now $100 (Was $130)

Posted by on June 10, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Chapters Canada: $30 Off Cookoo Smart Watch   Now $100 (Was $130)

Simplify your life with the Cookoo smart watch and save $30 off its purchase with Chapters Indigo. For a limited time, you can get it for just $99.99 instead of its regular price of $129.99.

This watch’s main selling point is that on top of displaying the time (duh!), it syncs with a number of devices like the iPhone, the iPad, the Samsung Galaxy (S4 and Galaxy Note 3) and the HTC One and displays alerts such as: incoming and missed calls, text messages, calendar reminders, etc. Plus, you can customize it to alert you either via an icon, a sound or a vibration.

Another particularly useful feature is that if you happen to misplace your phone, you can use the watch to find it. I have to admit that this option would definitely be one that I would use often as I can’t even begin to count the number of times I lose my phone over the course of the day and I always end up finding it in the oddest places.

Available in either black, white, blue or pink, this watch can also notify you when your phone is low on battery and you can use it to take pictures through your phone. Simply set it on the counter and take pictures with a press of a button. I can certainly see this being useful for group shots but you could also use it to take selfies! Chapters Canada: $30 Off Cookoo Smart Watch   Now $100 (Was $130)

Price comparing this watch, I found that every other major retailer is offering it at its regular price and it doesn’t look like this watch goes on sale very often. So if you’re in need of a new watch, then this one would definitely be a great contender. It could also make for a wonderful Father’s Day gift, though keep in mind that there is a chance that you won’t get it on time but if you think your Dad would really like it, then better late then never! It would definitely ship for free also as Chapters offers free shipping on all orders over $25.

Amazon Canada: Buy A Google Chromecast & Get $20 Free On Google Play

Posted by on June 10, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Buy A Google Chromecast & Get $20 Free On Google Play

You can get $20 towards Google Play items like movies, music, games and more when you buy and set up a Chromecast from Amazon before June 30th.

I had never heard of Chromecast before, but it sounds very cool. For only $39 you’ll get super small media streaming device that is meant to plug into your TV (via the HDMI port). You’ll then be able to watching video and music on your TV that is streamed from your smartphone, tablet or computer. It supports more than just Google Play, including Nexflix, You Tube and content from your Chrome browser. It also works with Android, iOS, Mac, Windows and Chromebooks. There is also an app so you can do this from anywhere you are.

There are 966 reviews on Amazon for the Chromecast, with a 4.1 star rating out of 5, which I think tells a lot!

If you weren’t sure about buying one before, or waiting for a price drop, this is the time. You’ll get $20 in free movies and more on Google Play when you buy a Chromecast from Amazon, which is sort of like paying less than $20 for your unit. Once you’ve bought your Chromecast, you’ll have to redeem your offer before June 30th and redeem your Google Play credit by July 30th.

This item looks so easy, even I could use it! I am technologically-inept, but this is just a plug and go type of thing. I’ve actually sent the deal to my husband already, as it really is a fantastic deal. Even this reviewer thinks I could use it:

Set up for this was extremely easy to, just as indicated by the “three easy steps”. Granted, I am a bit of techie, so for me it was a no-brainer. Truthfully, if you know how to download apps, you should be able to handle the setup of this. If you don’t, please get your kid/friend/partner that is slightly more technologically adept to set it up.

Usage is easy, Google is making everything simplistic to use and understand, and for anyone who uses Google services, you will find that it maintains the “feel” and logic of the other services it offers.

Your Chromecast will ship for free, as it is over the $25 minimum required by Amazon for free shipping.

EXCLUSIVE: 40% off Dyson DC45 Refurb Cordless Vacuum, now $269.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 9, 2014 at 5:00 PM

EXCLUSIVE: 40% off Dyson DC45 Refurb Cordless Vacuum, now $269.99 & Free Shipping

Here on Bargainmoose in the past, we’ve mentioned a number of times about the great deals that can be had from the Dyson refurbished store. Today, they’ve sent us an exclusive offer, only available to the Bargainmoosers through this special link below, and I think it’s worth a mention. We included this in our weekly newsletter a few hours ago, subscribers saw it there first! You can purchase the refurb Dyson DC45 cordless vacuum for only $269.99 with free shipping, that’s 40% off the regular price.

The DC45 refurbished cordless vacuum looks like a very handy little vacuum cleaner. As you can see in the image above, you can use this DC45 both as a long device for the floor, or as a little compact vacuum if you’re cleaning things like sofas or even the inside of your vehicle. I’d be particularly interested in using this in my car… it gets so dusty inside and it can be pretty awkward to bring the full-size vacuum cleaner out into the driveway to try and clean the interior… so that process tends to only happen about once a year.

On looking at the features of this DC45 on the Dyson site, there are a few things which are positive aspects. The fact that this portable vacuum cleaner is bagless means that you don’t have to worry about sourcing and buying bags for it in the future. Obviously, the drawback of this is that it’s bagless… and you have to empty a canister from time to time which can be a bit messy. I like how this cleaner has two power modes; normal mode for 20 minutes, or boost mode for a powerful 8 minute clean. It also comes with a docking station which looks handy for storage and charging between uses.

If you are concerned at all about the refurbished status of this device, I wouldn’t be. Refurbished means that it has been returned from the retailer. From previous experience, the reasons for this could be anything from it being an open box, a showroom display model, or returned by the customer.  Dyson completely re-work the machines, as well as thoroughly test them out, before selling them on to the next consumer. Usually, you’ll find that with this type of manufacturer refurbishment, the product looks like a brand new device. As for warranty, this Dyson DC45 cleaner comes with a full one year warranty, so nothing to worry about on that front!
