Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi-packs

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi packs

Buy one and get one free on select Blu-Ray multi-packs at Best Buy Canada. Blu-rays are just $9.99 so you will receive two multi-packs, four movies, for just $9.99.

Multi-packs are a great way to get more movies for less. The Best Buy sale includes some really popular titles for adults and kids. Some multi-packs are from the same movies series while others combine two movies that might have a similar audience. Here are some adult multi-packs I recommend:

My father really likes the Transporter series; I think he already has both these films. I have heard amazing things about Wall Street – that the actors deliver powerful performances. Moulin Rouge should be a classic, though I confess that I have never seen it. It is on my bucket list! I rather like The Devil Wears Prada merely because of all the amazing fashion on the movie.

There are also plenty of multi-packs for children as well:

I may love Robin Williams, but I have never been able to sit through Night at the Museum. Since I have tried, twice, to make it through NatM and failed – I have never attempted the sequel. I have seen both Ice Age 1 and 2. They are both enjoyable in their own way. However, I really want to strangle that sloth like no tomorrow. My favourite character is the sabre-tooth squirrel.

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi packs

Now, this deal can stack on top of itself. That means you can buy two and get two free or buy three and receive three free. I tried it out with four Blu-Ray multi-packs. My total was $19.98 for all four – two were free.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Most of these movies are available for in-store pickup free of charge. If you do not plan to buy six multi-packs (total of $30) to receive free shipping, then you may just want to order and pick up instead. Oddly enough, free shipping was showing on my cart total of $19.98. I wonder if it was calculate the shipping minimum before discount.

The Complete MacGyver (39 discs) Was $154 | Now $46 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 3:41 PM

The Complete MacGyver (39 discs) Was $154 | Now $46 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

I nearly missed out on this wicked deal of the day from Amazon Canada – I am so glad I didn’t! Amazon.ca has discounted MacGyver: The Complete Series (39 disk set) from $153.99 down to $46.49. As the set is over the $25 minimum, you will also receive free shipping.

I am going to confess: I have never watched MacGyver before. I know his name like I know the name of Mad Max… but I have never actually seen him in all his glory. In many ways, MacGyver has nearly become synonymous with being resourceful and able to get yourself out of anything.

This box set is incredible. You will receive a full 39 discs, which includes all seven seasons, the two televised movies, and tons of bonus features.

I tried price comparing with the usual spots, but so few vendors actually carry this series. Walmart Canada has the complete MacGyver for $150.18 and $89.99 at HMV.ca. The closest competitor to Amazon is Costco. At Costco.ca I found the set for $60.99. It is surprising how widly prices vary on this set but that is how it goes sometimes. I also found the set at a couple of places in the USA where they retailed for $80 or more. Even Amazon.com has the complete set for $82.49 USD. That is around $100 CDN after currency conversion and before shipping.

We have established that this set is a good deal, so now we just need to establish whether you will like the set or not. The call is easy if you have seen the show before. If not, ask yourself if you like to watch a man pull outrageous stunts to get out of impossible situations. Think of a cross between James Bond and Tim the Tool Man from Home Improvement. If the answer is yes, then purchase this set!

I also think this would make an excellent gift to anyone who is a fan. This huge box set is worth a lot of money. Just think, at 39 disks you are only paying $1.19 per disk. That is incredible value!

My first and only introduction to MacGyver was through that most educational of all TV series: The Simpsons. I cannot find the clip on YouTube (as they are really cracking down on that), but here is a fan tribute to the episode.

Glitch!? Get One Year Full Access to The Entertainment Book Mobile App for Free! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 8, 2015 at 12:55 AM

Glitch!? Get One Year Full Access to The Entertainment Book Mobile App for Free! (EXPIRED)

I know you Moosers love coupons, especially the Entertainment Book coupons and offers. Entertainment Book Canada has a convenient mobile app that allows you to have instant access to tons of deals and discounts in your local proximity. This app would normally cost you $20, but we found a glitch that enables you to download the app and get full access for an entire year for free.

Ladies and gentlemen, this might just be the definition of frugal convenience. Entertainment Book has a coupon code available that allows you to take 50% off the price of one year’s access to their mobile app. They have currently discounted their app by 50% and by some fluke if you use this coupon code now, you get access to the Entertainment Book mobile app for an entire year… for free.

  • Coupon code: CHEER
  • Discount: 50% off (in this case free)

There is no telling how long this error will last, or if all orders will actually go through. Thus, I suggest snagging this offer immediately to ensure you don’t miss out. You can download the Entertainment mobile app on Android or Apple devices for free. Once you make your purchase and use the coupon code, you will be sent an email with your access code. Use that access code to create an account within the mobile app and voila! You will have full access to coupons and discounts through Entertainment Book Canada’s mobile app for an entire year.

These discounts are so convenient. You have no idea how many times I am out with my girl friends and we decide last minute to go out for dinner. I can easily browse through and find a great discount or coupon local to us, and show the coupon to the waitress or cashier via my mobile device. No printing is necessary and you get immediate access to the digital version so you don’t have to wait impatiently for your Entertainment Book to arrive. Now is the time to get out on that hot date you have been waiting for. The discounts within the app will be valid through to the end of December 2015, so you’re not getting an entire year for free – but you really can’t complain since you still have just over 8 months to enjoy the savings.

You can get more coupon codes and promotions for Entertainment Books here in the Bargainmoose forum.

Amazon Canada: $10 Off The Hobbit Trilogy [Blu Ray] – Now $50 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 4:40 PM

Amazon Canada: $10 Off The Hobbit Trilogy [Blu Ray]   Now $50 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada just dropped their price on The Hobbit Trilogy (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] from $59.99 down to $49.99 with free shipping.

Here is a quick price comparison for my lovely Moosers! This same boxed set costs:

  • $59.96 @ Walmart Canada
  • $59.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $59.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada (OOS)
  • $49.99 + $10 shipping @ HMV Canada

Only HMV matches Amazon Canada’s price, but the shipping cost at HMV makes it not worth purchasing from there. Overall, Amazon Canada has the best deal on this newly released box set of all three of The Hobbit movies.

I may be obsessed. In fact – I am obsessed. I was given The Hobbit Trilogy on Blu Ray (this exact box set) mere days after it came out. To my utter shock, this is a huge nine-disk set inside a very space efficient box. The disks are gorgeous in black with silver text.

The first three disks are The Hobbit movies on Blu Ray – one disk for each movie. The next three disks are dedicated to special features – yes – three disks worth of special features! Each of the original disks still has special features so all of this is bonus material! The last three disks are The Hobbit movies in DVD format.

I have but one criticism – only five of the nine disks have a pretty Celtic (okay Hobbitish) frame. It would have been nice – for consistency – if all nine disks had the Celtic looking frame around the front rim of the disk. For example, the three Blu-Ray movies are each different – the first has no frame, and the second and third have frames but each are different.

Since receiving my copy, I have watched all three movies in Blu-Ray. Actually, I have watched An Unexpected Journey one had a half times, The Desolation of Smaug twice, and The Battle of The Five Armies only once. I really love this set. Originally, I thought the second movie was my favourite but the first movie is really up there. The box looks nice too, but I wish I had gotten Future Shop’s Steel book version before Future Shop disappeared. However, there was a premium on that box set.

Overall, this is an amazing set with tons of bonus features for fans. At just $50 for the set, you are paying approximately $5.55 per disk.

As this set costs over $25, it will ship to you free of charge.

The Imitation Game [Blu-Ray Combo] Now $17.24 @ Amazon.ca (FS @ $25) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 1, 2015 at 3:57 PM

The Imitation Game [Blu Ray Combo] Now $17.24 @ Amazon.ca (FS @ $25) (EXPIRED)

The Imitation Game was just released in theatres a few months ago so I am shocked to see such a good deal on the Blu-Ray combo pack so soon. Originally $37.99, The Imitation Game is on sale for $17.24 right now.

I price compared the price of this movie against other popular retailers. Best Buy Canada is selling The Imitation Game for $24.99 and Best Buy Canada is selling the same combo for $24.96. As Amazon is nearly $7 cheaper on such a new movie – I thought this would be a great chance to purchase it without waiting too long.

I also want to note that this edition includes the Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Copy. Just the DVD copy retails for $19.99 at Best Buy and Walmart so you are receiving this deluxe combo for less than the DVD copy alone.

I saw the ads for this movie and highly considered going, but I do not like watching wartime movies. Even my devotion to the notoriously good-looking Benedict Cumberbatch did not sway my decision. On IMDB, this movie rates 8.1/10 stars. Many of the reviews are like a mini essay, but I really like what this one reviewer closed with:

Go see it! Because otherwise you would be missing the chance to see a most remarkable film, performed to perfection. A film about a story that matters, about events that changed history and simply about a man without whom you might not even be able to read this review on your Turing machine.

In case you are not familiar with the plot – it is the ‘based on true events’ story of brilliant mathematician Alan Turing who cracked the ‘unbreakable’ German Enigma code during World War II. He made a very large dent in history – and really was a pivotal figure in the way the war turned out.

I also checked the movie out on Rotten Tomatoes where it has an 89% rating by critics and a 93% rating by audience members. This movie was very well received as you can see, and should be an excellent edition to your collection.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. I suggest buying Interstellar as well as it is also on for only $17.24 – a fantastic price when compared with other retailers.

FREE! 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure @ Google Play Store

Posted by on March 19, 2015 at 9:00 AM

FREE! 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure @ Google Play Store

Free cartoons are always welcome in my house. Grab your copy of 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure free on the Google Play Store.

I cannot imagine having 101 polka dot puppies running around. It sounds like a cute idea if I was visiting someone else’s house! I would much rather watch oodles of puppies for free from the Google Play Store. You can watch this freebie on your computer or on any device compatible with Google Play.

You may have missed this film the first time around as this was a straight to DVD feature. This cartoon originally came out in 2003 as a follow up to the successful 101 Dalmatians.  I did not see this film, but my daughter loved the original 101 Dalmatians and I have no doubt she will enjoy this sequel.

Based on the descriptions of this movie at both IMBD and Amazon.ca, here is the short rundown of the film. We follow Patch who feels like he is not unique. It’s tough being one of 101.  The family moves and Patch is accidently left behind. Spunky Patch takes off and meets his idol from his favourite TV show Thunderbolt.  Together with Thunderbolt and his sidekick Lightning, they attempt to save various citizens disastrously. Thunderbolt believes, thanks to two faced Lightning, he must complete an act of true heroism or be replaced on his show by a younger dog. Cruella De Vil returns and with her sidekicks and includes a new third goon. With much slapstick, she again attempts to steal the puppies. In the end, we learn about the true differences between acting like a hero and being a hero.

This film is a cartoon, not to be confused with the live action 101 Dalmatians or 102 Dalmatians. On the Google Play Store, this movie has four out of five stars and 105 people have rated it. The rating of this film is G. According to Amazon.ca reviews, it would be a good choice for ages 3 and up. I am sure if you have a child who is younger, you can be your own best judge if puppies running from Cruella De Vil is too scary for your little one.

Freebies do not usually last long, so grab this one now. If you already have a google account this is super quick to claim. You will need to have either a credit card or Paypal inputted in your account to claim this freebie, but your account will not be charged. Since I was already signed into my account, I could play the movie in under a minute.

BBC Movies & TV BOGO Free @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:57 PM

BBC Movies & TV BOGO Free @ Amazon Canada

I think I just had a heart attack. Amazon Canada has an incredible promotion on BBC series right now. Buy One, Get One Free on a plethora of BBC television series’ and movies.

I have never seen a promotion quite like this before from such a major content producer. The BCC produces some of the greatest content on this planet, including the legendary Planet Earth series, Dr. Who, and more.

This is a limited time offer; I do not know when it expires. The lowest priced items will be discounted to free with a maximum of three free items per order. As a massive fan of the BBC Nature documentaries, I immediately looked for the titles missing from my collection.

Earthflight: The Complete Series (BD) [Blu-ray] is a recent release by BBC Nature that follows the migratory path of birds. This Blu-ray set is on sale for the lowest price it has ever been on Amazon as well! Originally $49.98, Earthflight is now only $19.96. I would pair this DVD up with something similarly priced so I get the best discount.

I have long admired the Wonders of the Universe [Blu-ray] disk set. I was really into stars as a child, and that is the one thing that all my other BBC Earth sets do not really talk much about. That is no surprise as the theme of BBC Earth is ‘Earth’ and getting to know your planet. However, I want to learn about beyond my planet. Wonders of the Universe was $30.98 and is now $22.93.

There are three sets of ‘Wonders’ documentaries, each with a slightly different theme. Amazon Canada has two of the three, so I would also purchase Wonders of the Solar System [Blu-ray], which is on sale from $43.98 down to $33.45. If I purchased both of the Wonders Blu-Ray sets, I would only pay for the Solar System one and get the Universe for free.

I am overwhelmed by my choices! I have long wanted to purchase Madagascar [Blu-ray] as it is one incredible place. That Blu-ray set was $43.98 and is now $32.83. I could combine that with Earthflight above to receive Earthflight free.

There are over 600 titles included in this offer – so there is literally something for everyone. Even if you are not a BBC Nature freak like me, there are plenty of thrillers, drama, comedy, sci-fi, and more titles for you to choose from in the offer.

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US) *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 6, 2015 at 3:20 PM

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US) *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

*BUMP. This deal is back on!* Here’s a little deal for the PC gamers! This weekend, you can buy Guild Wars 2 for a 75% discount on the original price! There are two editions on offer; the Digital Heroic Edition was $39.99 and it’s now only $10 and the Digital Deluxe Edition was $59.99 and it’s now only $15.

The above prices are in US dollars, so with the exchange rate, you’re paying slightly more in CA.

When Margarita last wrote a deal about Guild Wars 2, it was here, back in April 2014 when the game was on offer at 50% off, so 75% is obviously a sweeter deal. For the price you pay above, you’re getting the digital edition of the full game, and there are a few extras too, depending on which pack you choose. E.g. You get a Chalice of Glory in the Digital Deluxe Edition… obviously a few things to help you out when you are actually in and playing the MMO.

Here are some words from my partner – he used to be a big player of the first Guild Wars game, but he hasn’t got any experience of this second edition.

Geez, it’s been going a long time – it’s over two years since this game came out. There’s a new expansion pack coming (Heart of Thorns), it was actually announced yesterday. So this deal could allow you to get in and run through the initial game which should be bug free, by now! It’s very pretty… I want it.

I promptly said nope, he’s not getting it! There are so many unplayed games sitting on his Steam account, that he’s purchased when they were on special offer but hasn’t yet played. I’ve vetoed the purchase of Guild Wars 2!

I remember in the olden days, there was a World of Warcraft vs Guild Wars argument. World of Warcraft is by far the most popular nowadays, but Guild Wars still has a pretty big worldwide following.

Have you ever heard of the web TV series, The Guild? It’s a brilliant little show which came out a few years ago, when MMOs were getting extremely popular. Here’s the first episode:

There are now six seasons available to view, and it’s a great watch. If you’ve ever played any type of MMO, then the references in it will tickle your funny bone. But even if you’re not a player, you should still find the show pretty funny.

Amazon Canada: The Book Of Life [Blu-Ray] Only $13.49 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 5, 2015 at 7:55 PM

Amazon Canada: The Book Of Life [Blu Ray] Only $13.49 (FS @ $25)

Amazon.ca has the lowest price I can find on The Book Of Life (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD]. Originally $43.99, the Blu-Ray set is on sale for $13.49.

I price compared with other retailers and here are the prices I found:

  • $24.96 @ Walmart Canada now
  • $24.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $24.99 @ Future Shop Canada

Given the competition’s prices, I figured this was a really good deal from Amazon Canada. You can score free shipping on orders of $25 or more, so check out your wish list and find something else to buy. I recommend adding on the Frozen Planet Blu-Ray series that is still on sale for $14.99 as of this post.

I was very excited to see this movie in theatres, and then I somehow missed it. The movie was just released the end of January, so I am surprised at such a great price already. The animation style is quite different – playing on the style of Mexican sugar skulls. As you can imagine, the colour and graphics are out of this world – indulge in the visually gratifying world of the dead.

Reviews are quite positive for this movie. One reviewer said:

Just took my kids to this movie yesterday; it is so visually stunning that I will go back all by myself to enjoy it again, and I’ve preordered this disc as well as the The Art Of to accompany it. What a treat; the amount of detail that went into the visual crafting is just astonishing.

The movie rates a fresh 82% on the tomato meter at Rotten Tomatoes.

Now, if you did not see an ad for this movie, then you probably know nothing about it. The Book of Life is the story of Manolo who sets out on an epic quest through magical worlds. His goal is to rescue his true love and defend his village. It is a sweet story with an amazing sound track as well. You might also recognize some of the voice cast: Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, and the sexy Channing Tatum.

Both kids and adults will enjoy this movie. The best anime movies always have multiple levels for different ages. As one reviewer said:

For parents who are dead bored of the Disney and Pixar machines…this is a nice new surprise.

Pick this gem up for your kids and yourself.

Amazon.ca: Frozen Planet The Complete Series [Blu-ray] Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Amazon.ca: Frozen Planet The Complete Series [Blu ray] Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada has discounted the BBC’s Frozen Planet: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] from an original retail price of $62.48 down to $14.99. This is the lowest price that I have seen this wonderful series from the BBC.

I price compared this set to other popular retailers. Only one store matched Amazon Canada’s price, and they only have one left in stock.

  • $14.99 @ Future Shop (1 left) (UK)
  • $19.96 @ Walmart Canada (US)
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada (UK)
  • $42.71 @ Staples Canada (OOS) (US)

Now, the series at Amazon.ca is the original UK series whereas there is also a US version (noted by a different cover) that I price compared against as well. You really want the original UK series… from reviews I have read, it is just better.

I figured with how quickly Future Shop’s stock is selling out, that this is a good deal. I bought this set for well over double this price a few years ago because I could not wait to add it to my collection. I am a huge BBC nature series fan and this is yet another documentary narrated by the amazing David Attenborough.

With seven episodes spread over three discs with bonus material, you are certainly getting your money’s worth and then some. The episodes are:

  1. “To the Ends of the Earth”
  2. “Spring”
  3. “Summer”
  4. “Autumn”
  5. “Winter”
  6. “The Last Frontier”
  7. “On Thin Ice”

This documentary takes you to some of the most inhospitable places on earth – Antarctica and The Arctic – to show you the life cycle of plants and animals that dwell or migrate to these regions. Enjoy an intimate look at the survival of polar bears, penguins, killer whales, snow geese, and more.

Some of my favourite work is in the bonus materials. Each episode contains a “freeze frame” segment (at the end) explaining how the camera crews captured a particular sequence. Often it is at great peril, after weeks of disappointment, or complete fluke. You get to see behind the camera, which is incredible.

I love this series very much; it is one of my favourite documentaries to watch – especially in the summer. While watching icebergs and snow as far as the eyes can see will not cool me down in the summer heat, it gives me an escape. I completely agree with a reviewer who says:

Wow! I thought this series was great. I have always had a fascination with the polar regions and this BBC series certainly showed them at their best. It is amazing to see what different animals do in order to survive in these harsh environments.

Chapters Indigo: Buy 2 Teen Books Get 1 Free

Posted by on February 23, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Chapters Indigo: Buy 2 Teen Books Get 1 Free

Chapters Canada has a sweet little deal on teen books. Purchase two select books and receive your third select book free. Add all three books to your cart from the below selection. This discount will be automatically taken off at checkout.

There is a limited selection of books eligible for this offer and, frankly, I do not know much about these books myself. The only series I have read is Twilight, which has a very large fan following. The trade paperback editions are on sale for $12.27 each (with Plum rewards). Therefore, you can pick up three of these books for just $24.54. If you want to buy the books new, then this is one of the best offers you will find.

Upon glancing at Beautiful Darkness, I released it was part of the Beautiful Creatures series. Even if you have not read the books, you might have seen Beautiful Creatures on screen in 2013. I never got around to seeing the movie but I liked some of the ideas they incorporated into it. If your teen is collecting these books, pick this one up as part of your three. Beautiful Darkness is currently $9.92 with Plum rewards.

If I were to judge based on covers alone, then I would pick up The Coldest Girl In Coldtown because of the lovely art. This book was just released in August and sounds very promising – sort of a supernatural thriller of sorts. Check out this brief summary:

Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. And once you pass through Coldtown”s gates, you can never leave.

If you want to check out reviews, Amazon.com is your best bet. There are some HUGE reviews on there that will rather spoil the book for you if you are not careful. I did find this one reviewer’s opening comment quite useful though:

I thought I was sick of vampires, but I really liked this book.

The vampire trend did go full throttle there for a bit, and even I was sick of hearing about them. However, some books are better written than others are and can offer a fresh twist on an old legend. This book is currently $9.51 with Plum Rewards.

Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more.

Amazon.ca: $10 Off 3 Classic TV Shows – Shows Start @ $4.88

Posted by on February 23, 2015 at 1:20 PM

Amazon.ca: $10 Off 3 Classic TV Shows   Shows Start @ $4.88

Like the Blu-Ray promotion previously mentioned, Amazon Canada is offering $10 off when you purchase three classic TV seasons, TV movies, and more. Just add three items to you cart out of the following list and the discount will be automatically taken off at checkout.

There are endless choices including popular TV shows like Stargate, Boston Legal, Angel, and more. I am not sure how ‘classic’ is determined because several of the shows on sale are only about five or six years old.

Now, to maximize your discount you want to go for the least expensive shows. To show you just how good of a deal this is, I demoed an account with the following:

You could also buy Millennium: Season 2. Those three items add up to $18.86. The $10 discount is applied at discount so all three of those TV shows come down to just $8.86 (plus shipping). You can avoid shipping by reaching Amazon Canada’s $25 minimum. Orders under that cost $5.97 for shipping.

You can even purchase a complete series or two with this offer. Planet of the Apes: The Complete Series is on sale from $37.98 down to $7.99. If you like the movie(s), then you may want to see the TV show spin off as well.

For animated TV shows, you want to watch again, pick up a few seasons of Futurama. I added these three seasons to my cart:

Together, the three volumes come to $29.64 in your cart. During checkout, $10 is taken off so you will only pay $19.64 for all three volumes of Futurama.

There are plenty of choices here. I used to watch Stargate SG-1 when I was younger. The series was quite enjoyable – especially in the earlier seasons. I sent this link to my partner because he loves How I Met Your Mother. There are many seasons of that show available in this sale as well.

For those expecting classic TV, there are a few shows as well. Try out Reba, M*A*S*H, Green Acres, The Mary Tyler Moore show, and others. I am a big fan of M*A*S*H and have the entire series.

Amazon Canada: Three Blu- Ray Movies for $4.88 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on February 18, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Three Blu  Ray Movies for $4.88 (FS @ $25)

Are you looking to flesh out your movie collection while sticking to a budget? Check out the latest Blu Ray discounts where a single movie in Blu Ray format will cost you only $5 or less. On top of that, most (but not all) of these titles qualify for the $10 off three Blu-Rays or more deal so you will pay just $4.88 for three!

I looked up this section of under $5 Blu-ray movies again because there was recently two price drops on movies that moved them into this category. Taken, with Liam Neeson, dropped in price from $21.99 down to $4.88. I am actually surprised to see such a popular movie included in this section. Taken was a good movie according to me and other Amazon reviewers:

I was on the edge of my seat during most of this picture. It was VERY good. Of course, Liam Neeson is, perhaps, the biggest reason for this picture being so good. He is so convincing. I am looking forward to seeing “Taken 2″. I can only hope that it is as enjoyable as the first “Taken” is. You won’t be sorry buying this movie.

This is a good one to have in your collection, especially for this price. Pair the above movie up with two of any of the five following movies to receive three Blu-ray movies for only $4.88.

Each of these movies is only $5 right now. Add two of them to your cart with Taken and $10 will come off your order, essentially making those two movies free. That means you will get three Blu-Ray movies for only $4.88 – the price you pay for Taken. If you divide that price by movie, you are paying just $1.63 per Blu-Ray film. You cannot do better than that. I could trade them in at my local used DVD store for more than that in credit!

This is an incredible deal for three movies, even if they are a bit older. I chose Commando as it has Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie. He can be quite entertaining. I also chose Courage under Fire as that movie is pretty darn famous. Denzel Washington and Meg Ryan lead a fantastic cast. I miss seeing Meg Ryan in movies; she was one of the actors I liked best.

Amazon.ca: Transformers Age of Extinction Collectible Statue Set Was $120 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Amazon.ca is selling an incredible Amazon exclusive Transformers set for 71% off the original price. Transformers: Age of Extinction – Limited Edition Gift Set with Grimlock and Optimus Collectible Statue [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] is on sale from $119.99 down to $34.99. as per usual, all orders of $25 or more come with free shipping.

This is an exclusive to Amazon gift set so price comparing is just not possible. I did compare the set against Amazon.com where it is currently on sale for $44.99 US. Given our exchange rate right now, that is worth approximately $55.80. I think Amazon Canada is giving the better deal here.

I have not even seen this movie and I want this limited edition gift set. It is not rocket science to figure out why: you have Optimus Prime sitting on top a massive dinosaur (Grimlock). I have mentioned before that I really like Grimlock because you cannot get better than combining a mech and a dinosaur together. It is the perfect mash-up of prehistoric and modern technology. He looks wicked awesome.

Also, who does not like Optimus Prime? The guy is a truck that turns into a huge mechanical fighting machine. He is the saviour of the day, the noble metal hero who tries to protect humanity. In short: he is everything every kid ever wanted to have in a best friend. I watched the first two movies before I got a bit tired of the weak story line and just wanted to see mechs transform and fight. It seems I am not alone in my view on the movie:

The movie was great, not because of a cheesy story script but mainly for the CGI and mecha-action. I am not a huge transformers fan but the action figure is what got me into buying this movie. I am happy with the purchase and it looks and feels authentic! I recommend getting this item!!

Now, the movie includes Blu-Ray, Digital, and DVD formats. If you were to purchase just the movie separately right here, you would pay $29.99. Therefore, for an additional $5 you are getting this awesome statue. Even if you do not like the statue all that much, you could easily resell it for profit! You can really see why this is such a great deal when the Blu-Ray set alone costs almost as much as this limited edition set with the statue.

Amazon.ca: The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug [Blu-ray] Only $13.88 (FS @ $25)

Amazon.ca: The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug [Blu ray] Only $13.88 (FS @ $25)

I LOVE The Hobbit movie series and plan to collect all three of the movies. Well, if you have not picked up the second film yet, then now is your chance. Amazon Canada has discounted The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from $24.99 down to $13.88. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I made sure to price compare with other retailers to ensure you are getting the best deal. This is what other companies are selling this exact Blu-Ray for:

  • $21.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $21.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $19.96 @ Walmart Canada

Amazon Canada has the lowest price for this movie. I am stoked at this offer because, out of all three movies, this is bar far my favourite. I love the scene with the dwarves in the barrels going down the river while the orcs are trying to kill them. AWESOME!

Also, in this movie we meet the dragon. I have read The Hobbit many times over since I was a child and my favourite part was always the dragon. Not only was he a powerful force to be reckoned with – he also seemed rather intelligent. Smaug was not just another mindless beast. i think Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed Smaug very well and I love the scenes with him versus Bilbo.

Honestly, for under $14 this movie is an absolute steal. When I saw the price dropped I could not believe my eyes and I am wondering how long this offer will last. I suggest buying soon rather than regretting later. It is wicked cool that such a popular movie is on sale for such a great price right now.

Now, this Blu-Ray edition appears to give you more than just the movie according to this reviewer:

Even with the extra scenes, this is a much more action packed movie than the first Hobbit movie. If you are at all interested in how films or special effects are made, then this Blu-ray is worth the price just for all the extras. If you do not care about the making of materials, this version may not hold as much value but the extended Gandalf sequence is probably worth the extra price.

I am usually not into watching the movie extras on my disks, but this is one movie I would watch all the extras for because I love the world of The Hobbit. By the way, if you were curious about the making of Smaug or just like to see Benedict hump the ground, check this out:
