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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMAZING LITTLE THING!

Short and sweet, eh?

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

Price Comparison

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Newegg Coupon Code: 10% Discount!

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

Newegg Coupon Code: 10% Discount!

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

Click here to use the Newegg coupon code online now

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dell Canada: LG 32-inch LED HDTV Now $230 (Save $120) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Dell Canada: LG 32 inch LED HDTV Now $230 (Save $120) (EXPIRED)

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

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

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

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

Features:

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

As for ports, the TV has:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 6:00 PM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For this and any future Newegg coupon codes, visit our forum.

Factory Direct Canada: Sony HandyCam HD SDXC Flash Memory Camcorder (Refurbished) | Was $200 Now $130

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Factory Direct Canada: Sony HandyCam HD SDXC Flash Memory Camcorder (Refurbished) | Was $200 Now $130

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Today, Factory Direct is having a pretty sweet deal on their refurbished Sony HandyCam HD SDXC Flash Memory Camcorders. It normally retails for $149.99, but you can now purchase it for $129.98 (plus $14.74 shipping). If you want to, you can also arrange to pick it up in-store for free. This camera normally costs $234.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop, so Factory Direct already had a great deal going on at its original price of $149.99, but at $129.98 this deal just got better!

This Sony HandyCam HD SDXC Flash Memory Camcorder has some great features, including full HD capabilities (1920 x 1080 60p with 9.2MP CMOS sensor), up to a 27x optical zoom and a 54x digital zoom, a 2.7″ LCD display, SteadyShot image stabilization, AVCHD and MP4 dual recording, and even face detection capabilities! It also has 8GB of storage space.

I used to use a HandyCam when I started to film my (terrible) independent movies when I was younger, and I found them exceptionally easy to use. When I had to plug in the camcorder into my computer and transfer footage, it was all so easy. Plus, it was always fun to film with a HandyCam, due to the many filming options that you typically get to use.

The fact that this is a flash memory camcorder makes it much cheaper to use than a camcorder that requires tapes. After all, you don’t have to buy new tapes, and you don’t have to worry about repairing or replacing the tape deck if it ever fails (trust me, it’s a pricey fix when that happens).

I’ve included a brief review of this Sony HandyCam HD SDXC Flash Memory Camcorder from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

We use this Camcorder in a medical setting to video patient setups and for other clinical procedures as well and it is priceless for us. Saves times and we can review procedures in an instant, we couldn’t do without it.

Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

These speakers normally cost $78.24, but you can now purchase them for $35.64! You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

The Spracht WS-4010 Aura BluNote Portable Wireless Speaker System may not sound like a familiar name, but its features intrigued me (along with the 54% discount).

You can learn more details about this device by clicking on the link above.

If you don’t have any wireless speakers, you should really consider getting some. They’re great for many occasions, and I personally love using them when I’m in the backyard with friends. When the weather is nice, it can further encourage you and your family to spend more time outdoors. After all, with this Spracht WS-4010 Aura BluNote Portable Wireless Speaker System, you can turn any dull situation into something that’s just a little bit more fun!

If you were to purchase this Spracht WS-4010 Aura BluNote Portable Wireless Speaker System from Newegg, it would cost you $140.99. Listed below is a snippet of a review of this Spracht WS-4010 Aura BluNote Portable Wireless Speaker System from a satisfied Amazon customer:

The speaker has totally surpassed my expectations on the quality of sound and ease of pairing. Within 15 mins. I had my iPhone5, iPad, and MacBook Pro laptop all paired to it. As for distance, I was able to walk away from it (with laptop in hand) to about 10-15′ before the music started to cut out. If you don’t have bluetooth, the speaker comes with its own hook up cord for laptop. To me, this little thing is perfect!

Get this while it’s still in-stock, folks! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

These speakers sound phenomenal. I’m not an audiophile, so no technical analysis, but I do like the full range of crystal clear sound these produce when matched with my Sony STR-DG720. I would buy them again. Recommended.

Amazon Canada: 50% Off GreatShield 10400mAh External Battery Pack – Now $39.95

Posted by on October 13, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 50% Off GreatShield 10400mAh External Battery Pack   Now $39.95

I am a huge supporter of having external battery packs when traveling with any sort of battery-operated device you may depend upon for navigation or help. Right now, receive 50% off the GreatShield Power Tank 10400mAh High Capacity External Battery Pack Power Bank with 3.1A max usb output. Originally $79.99, the GreatShield external battery is just $39.95 right now. It is among the cheapest battery packs over 10,000mAh that you can find on the market right now.

I own two external battery packs. One lives at my husband’s work so he can charge his phone without having to transport his phone charger between work and home. That would inevitably result in him leaving it at either place and then having a dead phone. As the external battery charges over USB, he can just recharge the battery via his work computer.

The larger battery I have is for travel. My iPhone’s battery is not dependable and it can jump from 58% down to 12% in a heartbeat. In addition, when I had an iPad as well, I could charge both at the same time with the dual charging system. The GreatShield external battery features the same system. One port outputs 2.1A and the other port outputs 1A. The larger output is perfect for charging tablets while the smaller output will handle your smartphone just fine.

A 10,400mAh external battery can charge an iPhone several times over and give an iPad about one and a half charges if I remember my capacities correctly. They are so incredibly useful, not just for traveling but around the house as well. My house outlets are in the most inconvenient places, so I often charge my phone off the battery pack so I can still use it while charging.

There are a couple other deals on external batteries I wanted to point out in case this one does not meet your needs. The FosPower POWERACTIVE 9000mAh (WATER/SHOCK/DUST PROOF) Rugged Heavy Duty Power Bank is on sale for $39.99, originally $69.99. This is the only external battery I would feel safe giving to my Dad, as anything electronic needs to be heavy duty.

The Anker® 2nd Gen Astro Pro2 20000mAh Multi-Voltage (5V 9V 12V) 4-Port Portable Power Bank Pack External Battery is also an amazing deal at only $89.99, originally $119.99. With this size of battery, you can charge an iPhone 10 times before recharging.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

You can now purchase this Elenco Snap Circuits SC-300 Electronic Science Kit for $41.43 – the regular price is $64.99, so you’d be saving $23.56. It also costs $74.95 at Mastermind Toys, and it’s $64.62 at Genius Hack Toys. You’ll also get free shipping with your order, which is always a nice bonus!

It’s a really cool set for those that love electronics.

I never had something like this to play with when I was a kid. It would have probably been quite daunting for me at the time, but I think I would have enjoyed playing around with an educational set like this Elenco Snap Circuits SC-300 Electronic Science Kit. There were products similar to this that were available when I was a young lad, but I remember them being quite expensive at the time (I do remember seeing a similar set for about $120 at Toys R Us back in 1993 – yes, I am the Rainman of remembering old toy and video game deals when I was a kid).

I’ve included a snippet of a review of this Elenco Snap Circuits SC-300 Electronic Science Kit from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

We hesitated before putting down money on this kit, not knowing if our Lego-loving boy (age 7 at the time) would take to it. Boy did he ever! This kit has REAL components that can be seen so that they are later recognized in an electronic lab; however, because they are mounted on plastic pieces that snap together, they are very easy to use. The book has easy-to-follow schematics… This is great for self-discovery of electronics – almost no adult assistance was needed.

This deal may not be around for very long, so check it out while you still can. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Sony Store: 32″ R420B Series LED HDTV – Now $299.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 12, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Sony Store: 32 R420B Series LED HDTV   Now $299.99 & Free Shipping

The Sony Store Canada is offering $30 off the Sony 32″ R420B Series LED HDTV. This is a great mid-size TV with excellent quality and 720p HD. Originally $329.99, the TV is on sale for $299.99.

This TV is on sale this weekend for the same price everywhere, but it is selling out quickly. Future Shop only has five in stock right now and Best Buy has only 10 left. London Drugs also sells this model, but they require in store pickup so their deal is not as good.

I chose Sony because they manufacture this television, have the greater quantity of stock, and offer free shipping on $50 or more so you still get the television shipped to you free. In addition, if you ever have problems, it is always easy to deal with them if you bought your product from the company that makes your TV.

I think this is a good deal for several reasons:

  • This is a Sony HDTV for under $300
  • While on sale multiple places, it is selling like hotcakes
  • The Sony TV has great reviews

Yes, the reviews are fantastic. Many reviewers own multiple of these TVs and have owned them for several years. Check out these two reviews:

Great picture for the size of the TV. I have 4 of them and one purchased from the refurbished dept. Only one, the front sensor that the remote works off does not work after 3 years and have to change the volume from the tv itself.

and…

I’ve owned various brands/types of 32″ televisions. The Sony brand has yet to let me down. For durability, picture/sound quality there is no better choice. I currently own 3 brands of 32″ televisions. The Sony has the same clarity of picture without any glitches compared to the other two

One of the reviews I read mentioned the price being competitive with Best Buy and Future Shop, but both those stores were sold out. I figure that is going to happen again with this sale so be sure to pick up your TV here.

I bought my husband a Sony Bravia TV for his birthday at least three years ago and it is still working perfectly. There have been zero issues whatsoever, which is so rare with electronics these days. Overall, I have been super impressed with every Sony purchase I have made. They make quality products that last.

Best Buy Canada: $100 Off Summer Infant Baby Touch 2 Video Baby Monitor – Now $170

Posted by on October 12, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Best Buy Canada: $100 Off Summer Infant Baby Touch 2 Video Baby Monitor   Now $170

I have been in the market for a video baby monitor and much to my excitement, the Summer Infant Baby Touch 2 video baby monitor is on sale for just $170.38 at Best Buy right now. It was originally priced at $270.38, which puts it at a $100 discount!

Whether you’re pregnant or already have a baby, if you don’t already own a video baby monitor, then this is definitely a great deal. In fact, it’s one that I’m thinking of taking advantage of because it’s essentially 37% off and has loads of great features.

When considering what kind of baby monitor I wanted, some of my top criteria were that it must be a video one with a large screen, the camera should tilt and it should have a decent battery life. Reading around, I quickly discovered that one of the top complaints with regards to baby monitors is their poor battery life but luckily, the Summer Infant baby touch 2 actually boasts a 300 minute battery life.

Although that’s a 5 hour battery life, I’m sure it largely depends on the functions that you make use of because on top of measuring the room temperature, it also has movement monitoring. Personally, I don’t have much use for room temperature monitoring just because I have a digital thermostat in each room and I can easily set it to a comfortable temperature, but I’m sure that a couple of you are sure to appreciate this function.

With a range of 183m, it also has a 3.5″ touch screen, which is definitely one of the largest one available on the market. Even better is that the camera also has night vision.

By getting this baby monitor, you can also get a 10% discount on any baby proofing products from safety bundles to gates. In fact, the Safety 1st nursery safety bundle is already on sale for $24.99 (reg. $45), which means that if you add both the baby monitor and this bundle to your cart, you can get it for an even lower price of just $22.49.

Running a quick price comparison, the cheapest I found this baby video monitor anywhere else is for $215.99 at Sears and Shop.ca has it for $269.99.

As Best Buy ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re also sure to get this monitor shipped for free as well.
