Amazon Canada: Kindle Was $79 | Now $64 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada: Kindle Was $79 | Now $64 & Free Shipping

Have you run out of ideals for Mother’s Day yet? Maybe Mom would like a brand new Kindle eReader with touch technology. Originally $79, the Kindle is now on sale for $64 with free shipping.

Amazon Canada runs this promotion every once in a while. They had the same promotion for Black Friday and again for Valentine’s Day. Thus, the deal crops up every few months – just in time for important events. a few years ago I bought my mother her first ever eReader for Mother’s Day. She really loved the little device and took it with her everywhere.

Now, the base Kindle is not the only device on sale. You can also purchase the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Paperwhite 3G at a discount. However, the discount is not as good as the discount for the base Kindle. Here is my comparison chart:

You can easily see that the bigger the machine does not necessarily make it the better discount. The basic Kindle is certainly the best deal and it is more affordable than other eReaders in its class. The cheapest Kobo eReader, the Kobo Touch, retails for $79.99. I tried to find eReaders on Sony’s website, but they appear to exist no longer.

This eReader is an excellent basic device. The touchscreen device will remind you of a tablet or your smart phone. The device is really light and it is small enough to fit in a pocket, though I would tend to stick it in a bag for safety’s sake. I have heard way too many stories about people who have sat on their eReaders and killed the device flat out.

Some people may wonder why you would by a Kindle over a Kobo. Well, eBooks on Amazon Canada tend to cost less and they often have wicked sales on eBooks. In addition, The kindle includes Goodreads integration – a valuable community and tracker for avid readers. I am a member of Goodreads and find it valuable for keeping track of the books I have read and what I thought of those books. My goal this year is to read 30 new books.

eReaders mimic the reading style of a book, thus they are superior to tablets for reading without eye-strain.

BestBuy Canada: Bose Soundlink Mini Speaker Was $220 | Now $200 & Free Mini Speaker ($10 Value)

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 12:30 PM

BestBuy Canada: Bose Soundlink Mini Speaker Was $220 | Now $200 & Free Mini Speaker ($10 Value)

The only speaker in the world that I want is the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker. Bose rarely ever goes on sale (like never), so I am pleased to bring you this deal on the Bose SoundLink. Originally $219.99, the speaker is now on sale for $199.99. You will also receive a free Philips Universal Portable Speaker, valued at $9.99, with your purchase.

Now, this speaker is on sale for the same price at a few other retailers – like Amazon and Bose. While the prices match, Best Buy’s deal is better because of the bonus speaker you receive – an extra $10 value. You need to follow these exact steps to receive your free speaker.

You need to add the freebie speaker before you add the big boy to your cart. At checkout, you will notice that they process the discount oddly. Instead of simply having the freebie speaker show as free, they take the cost of that speaker off the cost of the Bose SoundLink Mini. Your cart will look like this:

BestBuy Canada: Bose Soundlink Mini Speaker Was $220 | Now $200 & Free Mini Speaker ($10 Value)

As you can see, the price of the Bose SoundLink drops to $190 instead of the price of the Philips speaker being dropped.

The free speaker is available in black or purple as blue has already sold out. Of course, the Bose Speaker is legendary. The speaker rates 4.8/5 stars with over 100 ratings. One reviewer said:

This is simply the best Bluetooth speaker in this price range. Quality sound, user friendly. When you purchase Bose you know your getting quality. Don’t even bother the competition, buy the Bose and enjoy!

I wanted this speaker badly, but I ended up with the Sony SRS-X5 as the price was more affordable. I still dream of owning the Bose SoundLink Mini. The next time I buy a wireless speaker, I will save up and purchase it. I have heard this speaker fill an entire classroom with large, loud, rich sound. The day I heard my classmate’s Bose Soundlink Mini is the day I knew I would buy one for myself.

The mini Philips speaker is a nice little bonus that you might want to give away as a gift once you hear the Bose’s sound. Receive free shipping as your order is over $25.

Dell Latitude Refurbished Laptop Was $389 | Now $298 With Exclusive Coupon Code + Shipping @ refurb.io

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 11:13 AM

Dell Latitude Refurbished Laptop Was $389 | Now $298 With Exclusive Coupon Code + Shipping @ refurb.io

Refurb.io is edging out the competition with the refurbished Dell Latitude E6420 laptop. This laptop was $389 and is on sale for $348. Add the exclusive coupon code and the price drops to $298.

Click here to buy the refurbished Dell Latitude E6420 laptop @ refurb.io now

  • Coupon code: MOOSEKLUSIVE
  • Discount: $50 Off the refurbished Dell Latitude E6420
  • Expiry: 8th May 2015

My laptop handles both my business and entertainment. When I am shopping for a laptop, I am looking for something a little bit beyond a basic model. If you are looking for something with a little more power, then you want to check the Dell Latitude E6420 Refurbished Laptop that comes packed to keep you running smoothly. This 14.1” notebook comes equipped with a 250-gigabyte hard drive, Windows 7 Professional and four gigabytes of ram. This notebook is also set to handle media with a DVD-RW allowing you to access and burn both CDs and DVDs.

Price Comparison

Staples Canada has a refurbished version of this laptop for $350.90 and it includes free shipping but a very short warranty. TigerDirect.ca has this same refurbished laptop for $389.99 and you will pay for shipping costs. I tried a couple different locations across Canada, and the shipping rates vary drastically but are all over $12. Shop.ca is selling a refurbished version of this laptop for $449.99 and it includes free shipping. You could also buy a refurbished version of this laptop at Dell.ca for $509 with free shipping.

Shipping

Shipping varies based on your location. I find the price a bit high at $18.99 to Quebec, though the amount will adjust to your location. When I crunch the discount numbers, this deal still comes out ahead of what I can pick up elsewhere.

Reviews

There is one positive review on refurb.io for this laptop. The user is really happy and has written a lengthy note. I also see that PC Magazine has given this laptop an excellent overall rating. I would say this is a solid buy, the comments at PC Magazine are also checking out with most praising this laptop.

Warranty

While the Staples deal is not terrible, you really are getting a better deal at refurb.io with this exclusive coupon. These guys specialize in refurbished products. With a one-year warranty and a 90-day warranty on the battery, refurb.io is giving you the guarantee that this refurbished product is going to be top of the line. The Staples deal on this same laptop has only a 90-day warranty. When buying a refurbished product, that one year warranty helps give me the extra peace of mind that the product is solid.

Are you still debating what model computer is best for your needs? If you check out the coupon code forums, we also have an exclusive 10% off desktops with the code MOOSE10. Save yourself some extra cash with that code also.

Brother Wireless All In One Laser Printer Was $180 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 8:33 AM

Brother Wireless All In One Laser Printer Was $180 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Over at Best Buy Canada today there is a rock solid deal on the Brother Wireless All In One printer. This printer was $179.99, but is now only $79.99. This printer also meets the $25 minimum to qualify for free shipping to your door.

I recently bought a printer for our house. We waited a while to buy a new one after our last printer dried up completely in our moving truck and destroyed it. Both my husband and I were frustrated at dropping money on a printer again. For a while, we played the game where we tried to print only important items at his work. There was more than once we had to run over to Staples frantically to print something important. In the end, it was a pain not having a printer at home and I wish we would have bought this little deal sooner.

If it is time to upgrade in your house, the Brother Wireless All In One Laser printer will cover you. You can print wirelessly from almost all mobile devices and laptops through Google Cloud print or AirPrint for iOS devices. This printer prints at a speed of 27ppm on one or both sides of the paper. The paper tray holds 250 sheets, which cuts down on frequent reloading. Scan documents in colour or black and white, and copy directly on the printer. This printer should have you covered for every important paper or project for home and school.

After price matching around the web, this deal looks fantastic. Check out some of the prices at other retailers for the same printer.

Over on Best Buy’s website 14 people have rated this printer and the ratings are holding strong at four out of five stars average. Here are one reviewer’s notes:

Brother Wireless All In One Laser Printer Was $180 | Now $80 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Overall buyers seem happy with this printer. Several have mentioned that they struggled with the cloud set-up, but just as many mentioned that set-up is simple. I think I would plan to set aside a little time to connect my devices for the first time with this printer.

I expect these printers will sell out long before the end of the day at this price. While I wrote this post, I kept refreshing to make sure the item was still in stock. If you want one, you may want to jump on it now before they are gone. I have seen several items on sale at Best Buy Canada at great prices go out of stock quickly this week.

Buytopia Canada: 75% Off Portable MP3 Player – Now Just $10

Posted by on April 22, 2015 at 6:10 PM

Buytopia Canada: 75% Off Portable MP3 Player   Now Just $10

Buytopia has a fantastic deal right now: you can get a portable MP3 player with a built-in USB drive for just $10, which is a 75% reduction from its original $40 price.

You can get this handy MP3 player in the following choices of colours: red, blue or black. Earphones are pictured in Buytopia’s image of this product, which you can see above, but there is no mention as to whether these are actually included or not.

I’m sure many of you are wondering about the storage, but oddly enough, Buytopia doesn’t list the memory capacity.

If you look at a close up of this portable MP3 player on Buytopia’s site, then you will also see that it says: “MIC” on the side. This makes me think that there might be recording feature but this too isn’t mentioned in Buytopia’s description.

To add your music, you will simply need to plug the USB into your computer and transfer away. Since it is a USB drive, you might also be able to store a couple of files but you would have to try it to see.

This Buytopia deal is set to expire in 3 days from now, which according to my calculations, should be on Friday, April 24th but Buytpoia’s deals don’t always expire when they are set to. So if you are interested in this deal, first all, don’t delay as it might sell out and second of all, don’t wait until the very last day either. There are good chances that this deal will be extended past the “3 days remaining” as it happens with a lot of their deals, but you just never know!

The only downside to this offer is that shipping is $4.95 but even then, it’s a pretty awesome deal, especially since taxes are already included. Keep in mind that the way Buytopia’s site operates is that your item will ship 4-6 weeks after the deal ends on their site, so you won’t necessarily get it right away. If it does end within the next couple of days, then you can expect your order in May, but hopefully well before that of course!

Apple iPad2 32GB Refurbished Was $400 | Now $248 + Shipping @ refurb.io

Posted by on April 22, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Apple iPad2 32GB Refurbished Was $400 | Now $248 + Shipping @ refurb.io

If you love all things Apple, check out the refurbished Apple iPad 2 with 32 GB over at refurb.io at an awesome price. This refurbished iPad 2 was $399, but is now only $248 plus shipping costs.

We had an iPad for a little while in our house before it was broken and are on the hunt for a new tablet. Apple products are top of the line, and the powerfulness of the apps available is hard to resist. The problem can be I do not always have the cash to pony up for the technology I would like to have. For example, it is difficult to justify dropping $460 on the iPad Air 2 at Best Buy Canada or $379.99 on the iPad 2 Mini at Chapters Indigo when we already have multiple electronics including laptops, cell phones, and several iPods.

If you have been on the fence about grabbing an iPad for your house, you may want to check out this refurbished deal from refurb.io. This iPad 2 is a 32 GB and is light at 1.3 pounds. It has both a front and back camera, includes iOS 8.2 preloaded and has a screen that is 9.7 inches. A limited 90-day warranty is included with this iPad 2. This deal is perfect for a secondary device in your house.

The iPad 2 is getting harder to find these days with different variations of the iPad mini and the iPad Air moving into the marketplace. I did find a similar refurbished iPad 2 model for $379.99 at Newegg.ca. Staples Canada has a refurbished iPad 2 with less memory at only 16gb but includes a folio case for a total price of $349. You will not find a better price in the refurbished section of Apple Canada, they currently do not have any refurbished iPads of any generation.

Shipping is running $15.99 with a Quebec address and $12.99 with a Toronto address. Depending on your location, shipping will vary. This shipping price still puts you bellow the total price you would pay at Newegg or at Staples Canada by quite a bit for the same refurbished product.

If you have been itching to get a tablet but have not quite made the jump, this is a great option. I am considering a tablet that is mainly used by my kid. While I could buy a cheaper windows tablet, I want something that has a little bit of power that my husband and I can use also as it will be the only tablet in the house. My daughter is three, so the tablet is not hers alone. We also use our Apple devices for Facetime often, and while Skype is great, Facetime connects my family with much more ease. This deal might just be the solution I have been waiting for.

If you want one of these iPads, I would not think too long or it might be gone. Apple products at great prices generally are in high demand.

HP Store Coupon Code: Extra 30% Off PC Accessories

Posted by on April 21, 2015 at 4:00 PM

HP Store Coupon Code: Extra 30% Off PC Accessories

The HP Store Canada is offering an extra 30% off accessories for the next 72 hours. This coupon code can be combined with sale items to make for some very nice deals. All items also receive free shipping.

Click here to shop accessories @ HP Store Canada

  • Coupon Code: 72HRACCCP
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 23rd April 2015

This coupon appears to work on top of any accessories in the section above – including sale items. I tried the coupon out on the HP H2800 Orange Headset, which is on sale from $34.99 down to $19.99. In my cart, the headset came down to $13.99, which is the cheapest I have seen it. The HP H2800 White Headset will cost the same amount after coupon.

There are a bunch of HP Stream 8 and 7 cases on sale, in varying colours. Originally $34.99, the HP Stream 8 Blue Case is on sale for $19.99. It comes down to $13.99 in your cart. Likewise, the HP Stream 7 White Case was $34.99, is on sale for $19.99, and will only cost you $13.99 after this coupon code. If you have an HP tablet, this is a good price for a new cover.

While the HP Ultra Thin Wireless Keyboard is not currently on sale, it is priced quite competitively for a wireless keyboard. At only $20, it would naturally be a good purchase. However, after coupon code the keyboard comes down to just $14. At that price, it is a steal. The same keyboard is $21.49 at Tiger Direct Canada.

My favourite deal is actually on an item I have posted about before. Just a few days ago I noticed these sweet little HP Z3200 Wireless Mice on sale from $21.99 down to $8.74. The sale price has increased to $8.99 each, but the coupon code applies on top of that price. After coupon, pay just $6.29 per mouse!

HP Store Coupon Code: Extra 30% Off PC Accessories

You can still choose from three designs:

If you bought before the coupon code, you may be able to ask HP to refund the difference. Many companies offer price protection for seven to 14 days after a product is purchased.

At this price, you can pick up a groovy mouse and a new keyboard for just under $21 with free shipping.

Check out the rest of the accessories section. There are bags, keyboards, mice, cables, and more you can buy with this HP Store coupon code.

Amazon Canada: Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light Was $180 | Now $108 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 21, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Philips HF3520 Wake Up Light Was $180 | Now $108 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada has discounted the Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light with colour simulation from $179.99 down to $107.99 with free shipping. This offer is on for today only at Amazon Canada.

Now, this is the HF3520 model of the Philips series of wake-up lights. When price comparing, you need to make sure you compare the right model number or you will end up with very different things. Other retailers sell this same Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light for:

  • $168 @ Walmart Canada
  • $139.99 @ Costco Canada
  • $189.99 @ Well.ca
  • $179.99 @ London Drugs

Amazon Canada’s daily deal price is approximately $22 better than Costco’s price right now – nearly 20%.

Now, this light is different from the lower end models. Unlike the other two models, The HF3520 features morning colour simulation where the light changes from red to orange to yellow, thus mimicking a sunrise. This is the most popular feature of the clock – and the reason why people choose this model over the others. There are some additional benefits as well.

Instead of two or three wake-up sounds, the HF3520 has five different wake-up sounds. You also get two alarm times so you can have your regular morning alarm and then another one for weekends, special occasion, or nap times. The self-adjusting display brightness will react to the environment around you to ensure you can always see the time but that it is not bright enough that it disturbs your sleep. Of course, this model has the sunset simulation in addition to the sunrise simulation so you, or your loved one, can go to bed and wake up with the sun.

A digital FM radio is included and there is a smart snooze button for those times you just want a few extra winks.

I have wanted one of these amazing little lights for a long time now. I tend to have troubles sleeping – not so much getting to sleep – but rather waking up too early and feeling terrible. a light like this helps your body learn an appropriate sleep schedule. When you sleep better, you are far more productive in your daily activities.

As I mentioned before, this is a one-day deal at Amazon Canada.

Sony Extra Bass Earbud Headphones With Mic Were $60 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 21, 2015 at 9:34 AM

Sony Extra Bass Earbud Headphones With Mic Were $60 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada (EXPIRED)

Grab a compact pair of earbuds that will not compromise on sound. Check out these Sony earbud headphones with included mic and extra bass. These earbuds were $60, but today only you can grab a pair for $29.99 including completely free shipping.

This set of ear buds is equipped with a powered bass duct to give a better quality bass sound. I am not familiar with this technology, but both Dell and Sony say this should improve your overall experience with the bass. The earbuds have a silicon sleeve on the part that goes in your ear both for comfort, and to ensure those beats make it into your ears. Also included in this earbud is an omni-directional microphone. When you receive that call in the middle of your commute, you will be able to take it no matter where you are going.

From reading more about these earbuds, they seem like they are a newer technology on the market currently. Here is what you will pay at some of the other Canadian retailers for the same earbuds.

Dell Canada’s one-day deal is looking like a pretty sleek discount.

Most of these retailers, including Dell, do not have any current reviews. Over on Sony Canada’s site, seventeen people have reviewed these ear buds. What is most notable is more than one person who says they are a professional musician are praising the sound quality of these headphones. Here is one review currently on Sony Canada.

Sony Extra Bass Earbud Headphones With Mic Were $60 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada (EXPIRED)

If you have been looking for a new pair of earbuds that will pack a punch, now is your chance to snag a great pair. A couple years back I bought my dad a pair of good quality headphones for his birthday, and it was a good gift as he would never have bought them for himself. If your dad or mom is a techy person, these may make a good gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

Dell Canada: Inspiron 14 3000 Series Laptop Was $339 | Now $290 & Free Windows 10 Upgrade

Posted by on April 20, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Dell Canada: Inspiron 14 3000 Series Laptop Was $339 | Now $290 & Free Windows 10 Upgrade

If you need a base model computer, this is the unit for you. The Dell Inspiron 14 3000 Series laptop is on sale from $338.99 down to $289.99.

This is a base model laptop designed to handle your everyday computing needs at a price everyone can afford. The computer comes with:

  • Intel Celeron Processor N2840 (up to 2.58 GHz)
  • 2 GB memory
  • 500 GB hard drive

The computer includes the following slots: HDMITM 1.4a, USB 3.0 (1), USB 2.0 (2), Kensington lock slot, and Media Card (SD, SDHC, SDXC). I would not have thought it before, but my media card slot is one of the most used slots on my computer aside from the USB slots. I think three is a good number of USB slots as I often fill them all up. One slot for my phone cable, one slot for my mouse, and the other slot connects to my external hard drive when I am backing my computer up.

On top of the sale price for this basic laptop, you receive three additional benefits.

$15 back with Dell Advantage

As I have mentioned before, deals at Dell are even better than they seem. With the Dell Advantage program, Dell customers receive 5% back on purchases of $100 or more. This takes the form of a Dell ePromotional card. You can then use the code on this card against your next purchase. After the additional $15 back with Dell Advantage, your laptop will have actually cost you approximately $274.99. Promo cards expire after 90 days.

Free Upgrade to Windows 10

I am not sure what happened to Windows 9, maybe someone miscounted. However, your computer will come with Windows 8.1. Then, when Windows 10 is released later this year, your computer qualifies for a free upgrade to the newest operating system. While a price has not been set for Windows 10, speculators are saying it will go the way of subscription base, like Microsoft Office 365, and are thinking it will be around $49.99 per year. Others think it will remain for purchase and are estimating $119.99, which was the price for Windows 8.1 standard and Windows 8 standard.

Free Shipping

All items at Dell Canada ship free of charge, so there will be no additional charges there.

I figured this was a rather sweet little laptop deal. I decided to see what the competition was selling for laptops around the same configuration. At Best Buy, I found this ASUS 15.6″ Laptop – Black (Intel Dual-Core Celeron N2840 / 500GB HDD / 4GB RAM / Windows 8.1) priced at $329.99. It has the same processor and same size of hard drive, but the memory is a bit bigger. Given that the ASUS does not qualify for an extra $15 back or for the free Windows 10 upgrade, I figure that Dell’s offer (which is already cheaper), is a solid deal.

Dell Refurbished Coupon Code: Extra 30% to 40% off Entire Site

Dell Refurbished Coupon Code: Extra 30% to 40% off Entire Site

Dell Refurbished is out to remind you why we celebrate Earth Day! Instead of buy new, buy refurbished and save perfectly good electronics from the landfill. Dell Refurbished has released a coupon code that gives you 40% off workstations and laptops. The same coupon code will also give you 30% off anything else on the website, like the ever-popular monitors. This coupon can be combined with the Dell Hot Deal items.

Click here to shop @ Dell Refurbished Canada now

  • Coupon Code: EARTH15
  • Discount: 40 to 50% Off
  • Expiry: 24th April 2015

The last time I posted about a deal from Dell Refurbished on workbooks, a kind Mooser decided to set me straight. NS said:

As a professional workstation, this uses ECC RAM, not the same kind you put in typical desktop computers. This type of RAM is 50-100% more expensive. In general, a workstation like this is probably not a great choice for an average consumer, even with the discount.

You heard it my lovelies. Workstations may not be the best choice for the average consumer. Nevertheless, if you are one of the few people who know what these computers are designed for, then you can score an amazing deal on one. This OptiPlex 390 Core i3 3.10 (i3-2100) has a 1 TB hard drive, 3.10 GHz processor, and 4 GB or RAM. Originally $509, the workstation is on sale for $381. After coupon code, pay just $228.60.

Laptops are fair game for everyone. This Latitude E5420 Core i5 2.50 (i5-2520M) has an i5 processor, 750 GB hard drive, and 4 GB of RAM. Priced at $529, the laptop comes down to $317.40. When I tested out this deal, shipping was also free on this laptop, thus saving me an extra $21.07. You can see the total before with the estimated tax for BC:

Dell Refurbished Coupon Code: Extra 30% to 40% off Entire Site

Taxes will differ depending on your province.

Monitors are one of the most popular items to purchase from Dell Refurbished. This gorgeous Dell Professional Series P2213 22-inch Flat Panel Monitor costs $169. Use the coupon code above to bring the monitor down to $118.30. Unlike the laptop above, this monitor did not qualify for free shipping. I am not sure what the minimum is for free shipping right now.

Refurbished Dell units come with a 100-day warranty. There may have some small cosmetic marks, but the machines themselves have been fully refurbished into working condition. Each computer is graded by Dell’s cosmetic grading system that you can check out here. Most the electronics I was looking at have a grade of A.

HP Canada: HP Z3200 Wireless Mice Were $22 | Now $8.74 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 19, 2015 at 12:33 PM

HP Canada: HP Z3200 Wireless Mice Were $22 | Now $8.74 & Free Shipping

HP Canada has discounted the HP Z3200 Wireless Mouse from $21.99 down to $8.74! All orders at HP Canada currently qualify for free shipping with no minimum.

I have linked to the generic sale above, as there are three different mice designs to choose from in the sale. I have linked individually to each style before. Pick up one, two, or three of the following mice designs:

I think this may be the cheapest mouse I have ever posted about on Bargainmoose. It is certainly the cheapest mouse I have seen in recent memory, as the other deals over the last few months have been $10 and $9.97 respectively.

As you can imagine, this is a basic mouse with a designer flare. The HP Wireless Mouse Z3200 uses Blue LED optical tracking for reliable use. The Blue LED optical tracking can track your mouse’s movements over marble, granite, carpet and more. I am not sure how it would handle a clear glass table, but you can always try it. Frosted glass might be better. The ambidextrous shape is perfect for left-hand and right-hand people, and can be easily switched between hands. I like ambidextrous mice as I mouse with my right but my partner mouses with his left hand.

This is a basic two-button mouse with a scroll wheel. The size is compact – so it is best for smaller hands. A large male or female may find this mouse uncomfortable for prolonged use. However, it is the ideal size to drop in your travel pack when you need a mouse on the go.

Now, I did try price comparing at Amazon, Best Buy, Staples, and The Source – but none of these companies has this mouse in stock. Thus, I just checked out the cheapest wireless mice I could find. Staples has their own brand for $9.97 and best Buy has a Dynex for $14.95. Amazon Canada’s cheapest mouse is $10.99. Granted that this mouse is cheaper than the cheapest mice at these places, I figured this was a very good deal.

All three mice are still in stock – and my vote is for the cute little whale print.

Here’s a hot little gaming deal at NCIX: the Xbox 360 controller for Windows is on sale for just $26.99, which is a $33 price reduction from its original retail price of $59.99.

This has got to me one of the lowest prices we have seen for this remote, so if you have been waiting to snag yourself one because you still play Xbox 360 games or have some on your PC, then this is a fabulous opportunity. At other online stores, the Xbox 360 common controller is:

The cool part about it is that one top of using it to play Xbox 360 games, you can also use it to play PC games but keep in mind that your operating system needs to be Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. No mention is made with regards to Windows 8.

The included USB receiver will also allow you to use up to 4 wireless controllers, along with headsets. This is definitely a nifty feature, especially if you invite a couple of friends to play old school games (or new ones — whatever floats your boat!)

Out of 38 reviews, this Xbox 360 controller has scored a total rating of 4.4/5 stars with reviews like this one:

Had this now for a while and has stood up to the abuse. Great companion for Steam big Picture works out of the box.

That one is particularly noteworthy because of its mention to Steam, which is an online gaming community with loads of PC games for sale.

Other reviewers praised the long USB cable and the comfortable feel of this remote on the hands. It’s also great that there isn’t much setup involved as you can basically just plug and play.

Shipping

Shipping is at a flat rate of $8 per order but you can use our Bargainmoose exclusive NCIX coupon code MOOSE until April 19th to get free shipping. This code grants free shipping to any order over $25 but hurry as there isn’t much time left!

NCIX.com: ADATA Premier Micro SDHC Class 10 16GB Memory Card Was $15 | Now $8 & Free Shipping *HOT*

NCIX.com: ADATA Premier Micro SDHC Class 10 16GB Memory Card Was $15 | Now $8 & Free Shipping *HOT*

NCIX.com really has an amazing deal on this ADATA Premier Micro SDHC Class 10 16GB Memory Card with adapter. Originally $14.99, this micro SDHC 16GB memory card is on sale from $14.99 down to $7.99 with free shipping.

Now, finding this exact card for price comparing is pretty difficult. So, I just price compared with the cheapest 16GB, Class 10, microSD card I could find at other retailers. Here is a list of the prices of the cheapest cards of the same class and same size at other retailers:

  • $12.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $12.88 @ Walmart Canada
  • $11.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $10.92 @ Staples Canada

These are all the cheapest possible Class 10, 16 GB, micro SDHC cards that each of these retailers sells. None of the above four prices have free shipping so you also need to mentally calculate that on to the price. This ADATA Premier micro SDHC card from NCIX.com is the cheapest I have ever seen for the size and quality.

This card is perfect for expanding the memory on your phone or your tablet. The micro SD card features:

  • 16 GB storage
  • Maximum Write Speed of 33 MBps
  • Maximum Read Speed of 50 MBps

The card comes under the speed class rating of ‘Class 10′ or UHS-I. This may seem a bit slow, but reviewers have found that this card performs much better with 3.0 readers. One reviewer said:

It’s a excellent card, reach up to 69MB/s and 41MB/s in R / W. Measurement on USB3.0 card reader.

Another reviewer said that he got the card up to 80MB/s read speed.

Now, this is not some obscure card by a brand you have never heard of. ADATA is a common brand for cards such as these. I have actually read comments from people saying ADATA is the only brand of flash card they will purchase. Well, this particular card averages 4.2/5 with over 40 reviews at NCIX.com. One reviewer said:

Have used this card in my Nikon DSLR, Raspberry Pi B+, and now Raspberry Pi 2 running OpenElec. Has run flawlessly in every scenario. Will be ordering another one. I also own the 8GB version and it has run with the Raspberry Pi 2.

This is just a reliable and versatile card for all your memory needs. At this price, pick one up ASAP before they sell out! Free shipping only applies as long as the cards are in stock.

NCIX.com: Patriot FUEL Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh Only $7 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

NCIX.com: Patriot FUEL Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh Only $7 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

** BUMP: This is the DEAL OF THE DAY at NCIX.com today – and thus has dropped down to $7 with free shipping – today only! **

NCIX.com has marked down the Patriot FUEL Active Mobile Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh With 3 Stage LED Flashlight from $24.99 to $7.99 $7 with free shipping.

This is a seriously hot deal. I have never seen one of these 2000 mAh battery chargers for so cheap. I price compared this exact unit with other sellers The Patriot FUEL rechargeable battery retails for:

  • $17.99 + $7.34 shipping @ Newegg Canada
  • $16.99 + $598 shipping @ Amazon Canada
  • $22.49 + shipping @ Tiger Direct Canada

I could not resist price comparing this unit with the Anker version (as I am a big fan of Anker). They sell a 3200 mAh model for $19.99. RavPower has a 3200 model for $17.99. However, neither device comes with free shipping. You are also paying over twice the price for just over 1.5 times the power.

This deal is only available for the Forest Green colour. All other colours are still at full price – $24.99 – so you want to pick up the green. I prefer my battery charger to be a bright colour so it is easier to find in my bag. The first green is okay in my books.

Now, 2000 mAh may not seem like a lot of power, but it will certainly save your phone when you have miscalculated the battery life or forgot to put it on the charger. Just today, a friend of mine forgot to charge their battery overnight and they had to go to work in the morning. A small battery like this would fit in his pocket or work bag no problem. In fact, he could just keep this one at work or in the car so he always has a battery on him. I would pick up two so one can be left in the car and the other could be left at work.

This is a very hot deal and is bound to sell out quickly. Last time I posted a deal like this, we found out that out of stock items no longer qualify for free shipping. Make sure to pick this battery charger up before it goes out of stock as the free shipping really makes this deal amazing. Let me know how many you buy!
