Logitech K830 Illuminated Keyboard Only $74 & Free Shipping @ DirectCanada

Posted by on September 14, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Logitech K830 Illuminated Keyboard Only $74 & Free Shipping @ DirectCanada

Right now, DirectCanada.com has a great price on this Logitech K830 Illuminated Keyboard. Regularly priced at $99.99, you can pick it up for only $74.13 as well as free shipping to your home!

As I write this post, the online stock says that there are 50 keyboards available, so if you’re interested, get in fast. They could sell out at any time.

Price Comparing

On Logitech’s own site, this keyboard is $99.99 with free shipping. The image I am using above is from the Logitech site, and they refer to this keyboard as a “living room keyboard.” There is a full explanation of all the keyboard’s features on there, and it looks like a really handy device.

As for prices elsewhere, everyone else seems to be around the $100 mark too, such as at BestBuy, FutureShop and NCIX. The closest price I can see is from Hookbag.ca where it is priced at $83.98 but there would be shipping on top of that. The price from DirectCanada is great, especially as you get free shipping too.

Reviewing

I personally have an almost identical version of this Logitech keyboard, the only difference being that mine does not have the trackpad on the right hand side. When I purchased my Logitech keyboard, I thought that the backlight on the keys was kind of gimmicky, but I’ve been surprised at how much I’ve gotten used to the feature. It’s especially useful in the evenings when it is starting to get dull in the room and I’ve not quite gotten round to turning on all the lights… the backlit keyboard comes in very handy.

You can read a full and comprehensive review of the K830 here on Gizmag where they talk about many of those features. Here’s a quick excerpt:

I found the keyboard to be a bit small for my taste, but this also isn’t the kind of keyboard you’d be typing, say, long dissertations on. It’s designed to be a home entertainment companion first and foremost – and I think it’s great for that.

This pretty much sums up the reviewers feelings, and it’s perfect if you need an entertainment device.

Sony Canada Promo Code: $25 Off $200

Posted by on September 12, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Sony Canada Promo Code: $25 Off $200

Sony has a special promo code out right now that will keep a cool $25 in your wallet. Spend $200 or more and you’ll get $25 off with promo code.

Click here to shop @ store.sony.ca now

  • Coupon Code: SPECIAL25200
  • Discount: $25 off $200
  • Expiry: 18th September 2014

Please note that the code is case sensitive so you’ll need to enter it in all caps or you’ll get irritated like me when I entered it all in lower case. Either way, you’ll get $25 off whatever you spend over $200.

I priced out a few special offers on Sony’s site to see if this coupon held any merit, and of course it did, otherwise I wouldn’t be blogging about it right now.

For example, take a look at this Sony action cam. It has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from Sony like a splash proof body, view and control via smartphone, plot your location with the built-in GPS and more. It also has a five star review, which says the action cam is “fantastic”. It was regularly $329.99, on sale for $279.99, and with a final price of $254.99 once you’ve added the coupon. That price far beats the price at Vistek, where it is 329.99 and even at Dell where it is on sale for $279.99.

Take a look at the special offers section, where you’ll find more in cameras, tvs and more all on sale so you can stack those deals with this coupon to get the best deal. As always, price compare other sites to see if the price is still the cheapest even with the sale/coupon code, because that’s what a smart Mooser would do. Of course, you can also buy regular priced items and apply the coupon if that’s what you fancy.

Sony offers free shipping on all orders over $50, which you are going to spend because the coupon requires a minimum purchase of $200, so enjoy that little benefit too.

Before you go, pop over to the Sony page in our coupon forum to see what other coupons might get you shopping.

Best Buy/ Future Shop Canada: PS4 Wireless Controller – Just $50 (Reg. $65)

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

Best Buy/ Future Shop Canada: PS4 Wireless Controller   Just $50 (Reg. $65)Back in August, I blogged about a $15 discount on the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 wireless controller at Amazon but given that the deal didn’t last very long at all, I thought I would update all of you moosers with another such deal. This time, you can get the PS4 controller for $50 at either Best Buy or Future Shop, but hurry because this deal expires in two days. The original retail price of this remote was of $65.

Whether you already have a PlayStation 4 console or are looking to get one, this deal is definitely worth taking advantage of ASAP, especially if you have been wanting to have a total of 4 controllers. To give you an idea, if you are looking to get 3 extra controllers on top of the one that came with the console for a total of four, then you would be looking at paying $150 instead of $195, which is a total of $45 in savings. Add to that taxes and you will be looking at even more savings!

Even better is that you don’t have to get the extra controller(s) in all black either are you can choose between black, glacier (white) or wave blue. Sadly pink hasn’t been added to the variety of colours yet as the PlayStation 3 had been but here’s to hoping that it gets added soon! Best Buy/ Future Shop Canada: PS4 Wireless Controller   Just $50 (Reg. $65)

On average, the PS4 remote control has also garnered 4 stars out 5, with reviews like this one:

The ps4 controller is awesome, feels amazing, thumb sticks are tight and accurate. By far better than the Xbox controllers and any pervious PS controller.

Although hailed as the most comfortable controller released so far by PlayStation, the biggest complaint from the gaming community has been with regards to the battery life. However, you can rest assured that on top of easily recharging it, you can also try a number of other solution like dimming the lightbar, turning of the sound on the controller, and enabling the auto-off remote’s auto-off feature. There is also the option of turning off the remote’s vibration but personally, I wouldn’t try that as it does serve to enhance game play. In fact, you could take advantage of these deals to get an extra controller, so that you can swap out when one needs recharging.

The cheapest you can get this remote anywhere else right now is at Amazon for $59.99, which makes both Best Buy’s and Future Shop’s discounts that much better!

Your order is also sure to qualify for free shipping as both Best Buy and Future Shop automatically ships orders totalling over $25 for free.

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

BUMP: This coupon has been brought back for a short time so I have updated the expiry. They have also RESTOCKED a ton of stuff on their website and have new stuff as well – be sure to check it out because this deal is wicked socks!

Dell Refurbished Canada has a coupon code for 40% off their entire website. It is rather mind-blowing to think about really, as refurbished products are already discounted from their original retail price and yet are in the same general condition.

Click here to shop @ Dell Refurbished Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 40BTS14
  • Discount: 40% off site wide
  • Expiry: 29th August 2014 14th September 2014

You also will receive free ground shipping on orders over $199. As you can expect from refurbished products, quantities are limited so grab any hot deals you see. Did I forget to mention that? This coupon code is valid on everything, which includes the Dell Hot Deals section. Stock changes almost daily, so check back often for new items.

Dell Refurbished currently has two Dell Professional Series P2210 22-inch Flat Panel Monitors priced at $155 apiece. You get a 22″ screen with a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050. The monitor has four USB 2.0 connectors as well as VGA, DVI-D, and DisplayPort. Both Energy Star compliant and EPEAT Gold-qualified, this monitor will not cost a lot of power to use. While this monitor is no longer available on the Dell website, I found the equivalent Dell 22″ monitor listed on Dell.com for $219.99 market price, on sale for $189.99. After coupon code, you will pay only $93 for the Dell P2210 monitor.

There appears to be a lot of laptops and desktops that are the same on Dell Refurbished. That may sound odd, but they may be lease returns or just a line that had some issues they needed to fix. There are a few Latitude E6500 Core 2 Duo 2.80 (T9600) business laptops in stock currently for $399. While the hard drive may be small, these are not designed for holding tons of information; rather they are designed to be super fast. You are working with a 2.8 GHz processor. Did you know your basic Macbook Air comes with a 1.4 GHz processor?  This baby will boot up and go through webpages so fast you do not even know what is what. I am on a gaming computer and it is only 2.3 GHz. After coupon code, this computer comes down to $239.40 and it would qualify for free shipping.

Rumour has it that Dell Refurbished will be restocking often, so if you do not see anything you like keep your eyes open and check back often. You have three more days to enjoy this deal!

For this and any future Dell Refurbished coupon codes, please visit the forum. Often they are put up there before we blog them.

$120 Off HP Officejet Wireless All-In-One Printer + Free Paper Ream + Free Shipping @ Staples Canada

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 7:00 PM

$120 Off HP Officejet Wireless All In One Printer + Free Paper Ream + Free Shipping @ Staples Canada

Here’s a back to school deal that you surely won’t want to miss. Head on over to Staples to get the HP Officejet (6700) wireless all-in-one colour inkjet printer for just $69.94. It was originally priced at $189.94, which puts it at a 61% discount ($120 off). You will also get a paper ream for free with your purchase and since Staples usually ships all orders over $45 for free, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Although I don’t have this specific model, I have always had an HP printer and never had any issues with any of them. This one in particular features up to 16ppm and up to 9ppm. It also has AirPrint capabilities, which means that you can print documents directly from your phone as long as the printer is connected to Wi-Fi. It also boasts over 45 reviews with 4.3 stars out of 5.

As for a price comparison, Tiger Direct is selling this printer for $89.99, while the HP Store has it on sale for $79.99 from a regular price of $189.99.

Valued at $7.36, you will also get a free HP FSC-Certified multipurpose paper ream with the purchase HP Office 6700 printer and if you want to add more than one paper ream, then you can also get it on sale right now for $4.99. I had to admit that at first, I had no clue what exactly a paper ream is. As it turns out, in this case, it’s actually a pack of 500 printer sheets with a total weight of 20 lbs. At a size of 8-1/2″ x 11″, they are also 96 bright, which will enhance the brightness and hence, the contrast, on any document or anything else that you print. According to the product details, this paper ream is also manufactured with ColorLok Technology, which “produces colours up to 30% more vivid and blacks up to 60% bolder than ordinary papers and dries up to three times faster for fewer smears”.

Plus, if you decide to get more than one paper ream, then you will be happy to know that 20% of all proceeds are also donated to the Canadian Cancer Society for breast cancer research. Although this paper ream isn’t all that pricey to begin with, especially since it’s currently on sale, every penny counts nonetheless! If you want to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society directly, then you can that as well through their site.

Buytopia Canada: $14 for a Children’s Learning Tablet

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Buytopia Canada: $14 for a Childrens Learning Tablet

I love to shop for Christmas gifts early and get the best deals possible.  I have two kids that just love anything electronic so I have been on the hunt for some great electronic deals.  I found a pretty amazing deal over at Buytopia Canada that will allow you to get a child’s learning tablet for just $14 right now!

This link will take you to the main Buytopia page so to get this deal, just look down the right hand side for the photo above and click on it.

Something like this would make a really great gift for a child.  I have an iPad that my kids like to play with but they are three years old and four years old and I am really worried they will be breaking it.  I cannot afford to get another one for them to play with so a deal like this is perfect!

You actually have a choice with this deal.  You can get one for $14 or two of them for $26.  These prices include all of the taxes but you will be subject to a shipping fee of $4.99.  Not bad at all considering that you are saving 53% already on this deal.

As an added bonus, you can use the Bargainmoose exclusive Buytopia coupon MOOSESEPT10 to save an additional 10% on your order.  That will bring the $14 cost down to just $12.60 for one or just $23.40 for two of them!

There are a few reviews of this tablet that I thought I would share with you:

Tons of great learning tools! My 3-year-old all of a sudden was saying words I had no idea he knew and to my surprise he learned them through the games on here!- Kendra.T.

I bought two of these so my kids didn’t fight over them and good thing I did because they love them! I have to peel them off of it when it’s time for dinner.- Paula.H.

You can order as many as you would like and buy as many as you would like for gifts.  All orders will arrive between 4-6 weeks after the deal closes on September 11th.  That is plenty of time to get them for Christmas gifts. As I mentioned above, I have two kids so I will be getting the deal that includes two of them.

Dell Canada: 12 Days of Deals

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Dell Canada: 12 Days of Deals

Dell Canada’s 12 Days of Deals begin today with sales on laptops, desktops, monitors, televisions, and electronics. Each set of deals lasts for 24 hours (5AM ET to 5AM ET). To get the best selection, always shop this sale early in the morning.

I linked directly to the electronics sale page, but you can also make a beeline for the 12 days of computer deals section as well. Here you can pick up a desktop computer, the Inspiron 3000 Small Desktop, for as low as $269.99 (was $299.99). This is a compact little desktop computer that gives you all the basics you need for computing with a 500GB hard drive, 4GB of memory and an Intel Celeron Processor (Dual Core). It should handle Facebook, Twitter, Word, and Excel programs just fine.

The electronics section has many more deals that are promising. Download a copy of McAfee Total Protection 1 PC 2014 for just $5, originally $59.99. I cannot say I have been entirely pleased with McAfee myself, but my computer has never had a virus *knock on wood* so it has been effective.

If you absolutely must have a mouse on the cheap, pick up a Logitech Optical Mouse for just $9.99. It is 33% off the regular price of $14.99. This is a corded mouse, so if you can spring an extra $5 I would recommend the Bestbuy wireless mouse deal that I mentioned yesterday.

If you are purchasing a desktop computer like the one above, then you will need a good monitor to go with it. Most desktops are bundled with a mouse and a keyboard so the only thing missing is a way to view all the content you will want to enjoy. The Dell 23 Monitor – S2340L is a beautiful full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 max) screen in a 16:9 widescreen format. The monitor regularly retails for $219.99, but is now on sale for $139.99. If this monitor is a bit too pricy still, you might be able to find a cheaper monitor during the 12 Days of Deals. However, if you combine the price of the desktop and the monitor, you are only spending $410 for an entire desktop computer – not bad.

Make sure to sign up for Dell Advantage before making any purchases, big or small – at Dell Canada. You can now earn 5% back in gift cards from Dell Canada on any purchase. Receive free shipping as well on any purchase with no minimum.

The Source: Etron Soulra Solar Powered iPhone iPod Speaker Dock (Refurbished) Was $250 Now $63

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 10:00 AM

The Source: Etron Soulra Solar Powered iPhone iPod Speaker Dock (Refurbished) Was $250 Now $63

I love the smell of new deals on Monday mornings! In this case, The Source is offering online bargain hunters the opportunity to save big on a solar powered speaker dock! For a limited time, you can pick up a refurbished Etron Soulra Solar Powered iPhone / iPod Speaker Dock for just $62.97 - it normally retails for $249.99 brand new! By purchasing this unique speaker dock, you’re also eligible for free standard shipping, which is always a nice bonus.

Splash proof and solar powered, the Etron Soulra Speaker Dock is something that can really come in handy when you’re going to a beach, or are going on a camping adventure. Hey, it can even be useful during a lazy day in your backyard! However, for days that aren’t too sunny, there’s no need to fret – this solar powered speaker dock also comes with an AC adapter that you can plug into the wall.

Whether you plan to use this dock strictly indoors or outdoors, it really is an interesting unit. Even if you don’t have an iPhone or an iPod, you shouldn’t have any problems playing music from your smart phone or portable audio device on this speaker dock, since it has a built in audio line input.

At this time, there are many speaker docks flooding the market, so it can be tough to stand out from the rest – especially when there are so many familiar brand names available. On the other hand, this speaker dock’s solar capabilities really make it intriguing to me.

On Amazon, the Etron Soulra Solar Powered Speaker Dock sells for $141.62, and it retails for $199.95 at Best Buy. I’ve included a brief review from a satisfied Amazon customer below.

We took the Soulra to the beach and I loved the idea of not worrying about battery life! It’s so nice to finally see an ipod player out on the market that is solar powered. As a mother on the go, having a place to charge my ipod and play it makes my life so much easier!

There tends to be limited quantities in stock for refurbished items that are available at The Source, so if you’re looking for a new speaker dock, act quickly and order this while it’s still available. Here’s to hoping that you all have a great, productive Monday!

Best Buy Canada: Microsoft Mobile 3500 Now $15 (Was $30)

Posted by on September 7, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Microsoft Mobile 3500 Now $15 (Was $30)

We have not seen a good deal on these mice for about a year, so take advantage of this sale from Best Buy Canada. Get 50% off the Microsoft Mobile 3500 Wireless BlueTrack Mouse (GMF-00009) in your choice of grey or black.

I found the grey and the black on sale, yet the red in the same model is still full price at $29.95. The other two are discounted to just $14.99 each.

This mobile mouse is mid-sized to fit in your hand comfortably and yet slip into your laptop bag as a convenient travel accessory. The nano-transmitter plugs into a USB port on your laptop for plug and play usability. When not in use, the nano-receiver tucks back into the underside of the mouse.

You can get up to eight months’ worth of life out of your mouse battery (one AA battery required) before it needs to be replaced or recharged. A handy battery life indicator will let you know when the batteries are low. The mouse also comes with an on/off switch for prolonging battery life. However, some reviewers say that the battery life can be as low as one month:

Great mouse I have had one of these before this is my second one I always had great results. battery life should last about one month but the tracking technology is amazing I usually use rechargeable batteries in mine

It probably depends on how many hours a day you are using the mouse. Certainly, rechargeable batteries are the way to go.

The reviews on this device tend to be all over the place. Some people say it is the best thing ever, others have bought lemons, and others say it is decent but not great. It is really hard to pinpoint quality when reviews are all over the place. One thing to keep in mind though is you get what you pay for in many ways. This is not a high-end mouse that will blow your mind. It is an inexpensive wireless mouse great for occasional computer use like checking email, browsing Facebook, and twitting on Twitter. This is not a gaming mouse nor should it be expected to perform like one.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Buying two mice will put you over that limit so go in on your order with a friend.

PS4 Camera On Sale $50 + Extra $10 Off With Coupon Code + Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Posted by on September 6, 2014 at 7:30 PM

PS4 Camera On Sale $50 + Extra $10 Off With Coupon Code + Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Got a PlayStation 4 or are looking into getting one? Then you’re going to want and need a PlayStation 4 camera as one isn’t included with the purchase of a console. It’s currently on sale for $49.99 (reg. $64.99) at NCIX and you can also save an additional $10 with the coupon code: PS410, bringing it down to just $39.99. It will also be shipped absolutely free!

A couple of months ago, I finally invested in the PlayStation 4 and I have to admit that I was rather bummed to discover that the camera wasn’t included. I had previously seen the air bots in action at a friend’s place and I was excited to try them out in the comfort of my own living room but activating the Playroom simply wasn’t the same without the camera. This is certainly an interesting marketing strategy on PlayStation’s behalf because although the Playroom is included on every console, the camera necessary for it isn’t, thus making it more enticing for users to go out and spend more money on this accessory! In any case, NCIX’s price drop definitely make it much more worth it, especially since Best Buy has it for $65.89 and it’s $64.99 at The Source.

It also boasts a convenient design as it’s rectangular in shape and can easily rest on either the console itself, a TV stand or perhaps even on top of the cable box. My cable box, for instance, is located in the middle of my TV stand, so that’s definitely where I would prefer to place it to make sure that it connects well to the remote(s).

Another cool feature about the PS4 camera is that you can instantly log into your account with facial recognition as well as navigate by simply voicing out commands (much like in modern cars). Of course, it’s not as seamless as one might necessarily expect from the description but it’s still a neat option to have, especially if you’re wanting to impress friends before playing a couple of multi-players games! Speaking of which,

While the NCIX coupon code mentioned in the beginning of this post expires on September 30th 2014, there is no word on when this camera will go back to its original price, up to from its sale price. For more NCIX coupon codes, be sure to keep an eye on the Bargainmoose forum.

GreenMan Gaming: 75% Off LEGO Titles

Posted by on September 6, 2014 at 4:30 PM

GreenMan Gaming: 75% Off LEGO Titles

LEGO has been around for many years, but it has recently become a huge hit again with the new generation partly because of the LEGO movie that came out last year.  This weekend over at GreenMan Gaming, you can save 75% off select LEGO titles for PC downloads.

Both of my kids love LEGO so it is pretty wildly popular in my house.  All of the LEGO games that are on sale for 75% off the regular prices right now, are based on action heroes or popular movies.

If you are a huge Marvel fan, you might like this LEGO Marvel Superheroes game that was $19.99 and is now on sale for just $4.99. It features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe including Iron Man, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine and many more Marvel characters.

I know a lot of Lord of the Rings fans would love this The Hobbit game that was $29.99 and is now on sale for just $7.49. It gets some awesome reviews. Here is a look at one of them.

I have played a lot of Lego video games, but this is the best of all. I mean, is the story of the Hobbit, with the extra scenes of the film (and book obviously) and with that characteristic humor of Lego franchise.

The graphics are awesome, the game play too. So… BUY IT!-  Johan’s Dr.

One of the really great deals that will give you a variety of games at once is this LEGO Complete Pack.  It is normally priced at $99.95 and it is now 75% off making it just $24.98.

It includes the following games:

  • LEGO Batman
  • LEGO Batman 2
  • LEGO Harry Potter 1-4
  • LEGO Harry Potter 5-7
  • LEGO Lord of the Rings

At the low sale price of just $24.98, you will be paying less than $5 a game which is pretty incredible.

There are 10 different reviews in total for this collection of games and overall, it gets a 90% rating from its users.  The fact that it got a few 100% scores really tells you a lot about how great this collection of games is. At 75% off the regular prices, you really can’t lose.

What kind of PC games do you like to play Moosers?

Tiger Direct Canada: $10 Off $50 Instant Discount (Expired)

Posted by on September 6, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Tiger Direct Canada: $10 Off $50 Instant Discount (Expired)

Computers. PC and Mac accessories and software. Televisions. Yes, Tiger Direct is an electronics haven that tends to have some great deals at times. For example, today’s deal is exceptionally hot for Tiger Direct customers – for a limited time, you get to save $10 off of any purchase of $50 or more! To take advantage of this deal, you’ll need to use the link below.

By clicking the above link, you’ll be able to save $10 off of your minimum $50 purchase.  After clicking the link, just enter your email into the appropriate field, and click Activate. A personalized link will then be sent to your email address, which only you can use (and yes, it just works once) – click on it, and start your shopping! Shipping costs will vary depending on the item that you’re purchasing – you can learn more about Tiger Direct’s shipping policies by clicking here.

I personally found Tiger Direct to be a reputable company that typically had their items well stocked (at least during my experiences with them). I found their prices to be very good for their desktop and laptop computers (especially several years ago), though other retail locations such as Best Buy, Future Shop, and even The Source have been able to catch up with them recently.

There are several useful ways that you can take advantage of this deal. If you’re looking to upgrade your computer with some RAM, or want to get an external hard drive to back up your files, it would certainly be nice to save $10 off of your purchase. Either way, there are plenty of electronics that you can check out on Tiger Direct’s website.

I haven’t been to a Tiger Direct location in a while, since there’s plenty of great deals on electronics elsewhere nowadays. However, I will be checking out their website today to try and take advantage of this promotion. Listed below is a review of Tiger Direct from a customer that posted it on Yelp:

Their website is one of the finest around – well organized, simple to understand and chock full of detail on the products, in contrast to, say, Future Shop or Best Buy’s website.  The rule here seems to be that more information is better, so their product listings are completely exhaustive and thus quite useful in making buying decisions.

Check out this deal, and enjoy doing some thrifty weekend shopping! Have a great day, Bargainmoosers!

Microsoft Store: $100 Off Surface 2 Tablet & Free Sleeve – Starting @ $349

Posted by on September 4, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Microsoft Store: $100 Off Surface 2 Tablet & Free Sleeve   Starting @ $349

The Microsoft Store has discounted all their Surface 2 tablets by $100. Big deal, other stores are doing it too. However, Microsoft sweetens the deal considerably by throwing in a free sleeve of your choice up to $50 worth. Now this is a deal worth talking about. Get your own Surface 2 Tablet and sleeve of your choice starting at $349.

The Surface 2 tablet is discounted by $100 in all sizes. You can purchase:

  • 32GB Surface 2 Was $449 | Now $349
  • 64GB Surface 2 Was $549 | Now $449
  • 64GB Surface 2 for AT&T Was $679 | Now $579

As I said before, Microsoft is not the only one who has, or will discount these tablets. Best Buy Canada currently has the same tablets for 99 cents more, though the deal at Best Buy ends tonight. However, no one else is offering a free sleeve with the discounted tablet and that is where Microsoft steps ahead of the competition.

32GB is enough space for me, though upgrading to double the space for only an extra $100 is pretty tempting. There are tons of cases to choose from in this offer. That is the other thing that really wins me over in this deal: choice! It is not like “here, have this ugly case we are trying to get rid of anyway.” Rather, you get to choose from 35 different cases. This is unusual and splendid in my books. The cases range in value, but here are some of the higher value options:

  • Brenthaven BX2 Sleeve – $49.99 value
  • Maroo Folio Case for Surface (Purple) – $49.99 value
  • Nixon Surface Sleeve (Steel Blue) – $49.99 value

There is great brand diversity and many different colour options as well.

Picking up this deal is simple. Select the tablet you want first. Then, it will open up the selection of free cases for you to choose from with all of them marked down to $0. Pick your case. At the bottom, you will see a bar that says, “Review your bundle.” Make sure you have what you want and then add the bundle to your cart.

Microsoft Store: $100 Off Surface 2 Tablet & Free Sleeve   Starting @ $349

Overall, you save $150. Your cart should look something like the above image. Microsoft offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more so you will be getting this bundle shipped to your door for free.

I don’t have much experience with the Microsoft tablets, so I really can’t advise you as to whether they are worth the price. Feel free to comment if you have one!

Amazon.ca Coupon Code: Extra $6 Off 40W 5 Port Desktop USB Wall Charger   Now $29.99 (HOT!)

This is a hot little deal on the Anker 40W 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Wall Charger with PowerIQ Technology.

Click here to get your 5-port USB wall charger @ Amazon Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 40WPOWIQ
  • Discount: $6 off above device
  • Expiry: Unknown

Make sure to click on the ‘sold by Anker, fulfilled by Amazon’ option. After some reading, I discovered this offer was also available on the black one but it sold out very quickly. Edit: Black version is back in stock! Get the white or black one while supplies last. The USB wall charger is compatible with the following devices:

  • iPhone 6, 5S, 5C, 5, and 4S
  • iPad Air, and Mini
  • Galaxy S5, S4, and S3
  • Note 4 and 3
  • Tab 4, 3, and 2 Pro
  • Google Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10
  • External Batteries
  • PS Vita
  • Gopro
  • and more!

There are only two of us in my household, and already I see this device being extremely useful. My husband has his smartphone, his tablet, and his iPod Nano that all charge via USB. I have my iPhone and a Bluetooth speaker that also charges via USB. Just between the two of us, we have five devices that need charging on a regular basis. Instead of filling up all the outlets in our house, we can just plug them into this port. That would create a charging hub in our household so we did not need to go searching for our devices each after they charged.

Funny enough, this coupon also appears to take off taxes as well. You can see my cart below:

Amazon.ca Coupon Code: Extra $6 Off 40W 5 Port Desktop USB Wall Charger   Now $29.99 (HOT!)

The device is well rated on Amazon with lots of love from reviewers. One of the latest reviews says:

I bought cheaper units which literally fell apart or short circuited within weeks of purchase. This unit was well built and also more handy to plug with the cable. Furthermore the unit does not overheat even with multiple phones, an mp3 player and a tablet plugged in and charging simultaneously which helps to give piece of mind that the unit will not melt down or short circuit. Even the standard brand name outlet to single USB adapters heat up on occasion from time to time for me. This one stayed cool even with multiple items charging simultaneously. Great unit. I would buy this again if needed.

I have two Anker products so far and I love them. Both are external batteries for our phones, and people have gazed at them jealously on long flights. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. For this and future Amazon Canada coupon codes, visit our forum.

Dell Canada: PNY 64GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive Now $30 (Save $40)

Dell Canada: PNY 64GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive Now $30 (Save $40)

Dell Canada is sporting some heavy-duty deals during their 72-hour sale including $40 off this PNY Technologies 64GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive. Originally $69.99, this bountiful flash drive is now on sale for $29.99 and comes with Dell’s usual free shipping.

I really must commend Dell on this offer; it is a fantastic price for a 64GB flash drive at 3.0 speed that transfers data up to 10 times faster than the old 2.0 USB sticks. You can see from the pretty little chart below just how much faster this stick is than its predecessors.

Dell Canada: PNY 64GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive Now $30 (Save $40)

The data above assumes that you are using a USB 3.0 port on your computer. If you are using a 2.0 port, then transfers will be slower. I just figured out that one of my ports is not the same as the other two – so I am wondering if I have one 3.0 port and two 2.0 ports. I must investigate.

I price compared this device with a few other places to make sure you were getting the best deal. I found the same device at TigerDirect.ca for $39.99 + shipping, Amazon.ca for $44.28, and at NCIX Canada for $46.63 + shipping. Dell’s price is quite evidently the best.

Most reviews for this product are quite solid across websites. One reviewer said:

I have a recording security system feeding a DVR. I can be away for days, come back and download from the DVR using the PNY 64GB Flash Drive. Never run out of space, and feeds right into my desktop in seconds using the 3.0 USB port. Great timesaver at a terrific price.

This device is the perfect backup for people on the go. It is also great for moving files in between computers. If you are working on some documents at home (often called taking home your work), it does not matter the size of the files – you can transport them at your leisure. You can also use the flash drive for transporting software or graphic heavy programs that could not possibly be sent back and forth via traditional methods.

I do not work much with flash drives myself, but if my hard drive keeps deciding not to back up my computer, I will be considering buying one to back up my most important folders and my entire pictures files. I probably would not miss much on my computer except for them… and my bookmarks of course.
