Amazon Canada: Classic Cartoon Deals Only $14.99

Amazon Canada: Classic Cartoon Deals Only $14.99

I’m a fan of cartoons in general, but classic cartoons are really where my heart is at. Pick up full seasons of classic cartoons for just $14.99 right now at Amazon Canada.

There are a few deals I found that really make this offer pop. You can buy Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 4 of Animaniacs for just $14.99 each, originally they cost $33.74 to $41.19 a volume. I price compared with Best Buy which is only selling volume 4, and they have it priced at $25.99.

Now on to one of my all time favourite cartoons: Pinky and The Brain. This cartoon has the best lines ever:

Pinky: Gee, Brain. What are we going to do tonight?
The Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world.

I quote these lines about once a week when either trying to figure out what to do, or when preparing to play Civ. I own volume one and can now buy Volume 2, and Volume 3 of Pinky and The Brain for just $14.99 each. You are saving 64% off the Amazon original price of $41.19 a volume. HMV has these seasons for $52.99 each!

As an ‘honourable mention’ because it costs a bit more than $14.99, you can totally score the Powerpuff Girls: The Complete Series (10th Anniversary Collection) for only $19.99 which is 73% off the original price of $74.98. Any Powerpuff fans out there?

Amazon Canada: BBC Life Blu-Ray $30 (Was $87.48)

Posted by on April 10, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Amazon Canada: BBC Life Blu Ray $30 (Was $87.48)

We blog a lot about the Planet Earth series because it is a renown set of disks that has captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences everywhere. Yet, there are many other offerings by the BBC team and they have a great deal on another well celebrated title: Life. Originally $87.49, the BBC Life series in blu ray is on sale for just $29.99.

This is the original UK version which is voiced by the amazing David Attenborough. I’m totally bias when I say this is the best version because the American version has Oprah narrating and I think David’s voice is far better.

This series is all about animals (and plants) and how they stay alive, evolve, migrate, copulate, and live. I own this series but have not had time to watch it yet because of university. I am seriously excited about my summer this year as I will get to sit down and catch up on beauties in my collection like this one.

Now it seems like everyone has put this series on sale this weekend but they are vastly running out of stock. I checked online at BestBuy and Futureshop, which each have less than 10 copies left. Those are going to be sold out awfully quick. I also checked the non blu-ray version at each of the places (which is not on sale) and it costs $60.99. That is pretty much the price you will usually pay for this series when it is not on sale. This deal is pretty hot, coming from someone who watches the BBC sets like a hawk, so pick it up while it is still in stock.

Amazon Canada: True Blood Seasons 4 & 5 Only $18 Each

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Amazon Canada: True Blood Seasons 4 & 5 Only $18 Each

Amazon Canada is selling True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season and Fifth Season for only $17.97 each. Originally these seasons cost $74.98 each.

While most seasons are not selling for their full original retail price anymore, they still do cost quite a bit. For example, season three costs $41.98 at Amazon right now and season six costs $44.99. For some reasons seasons four and five alone are on sale and it is certainly a deal worth getting. Do note that Amazon Canada has a habit of changing prices often, so this price could change at any moment.

Are you a True Blood fan? I think I got part way into episode one but was not in the mood and never picked it up again. I am a fairly big vampire fan (love Bella Lugosi) so I am thinking once I am done university I should try watching it again. Hot vampires and steamy love scenes, what’s not to like?

Get free shipping on orders of $25 or more so if you order both seasons you can get free shipping on your order.

Amazon Canada: Up to 75% Off Popular Movie Titles

Posted by on March 22, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Up to 75% Off Popular Movie Titles

Amazon Canada is offering up to 75% off popular movie titles right now.

I actually found out about this sale when three items I had in my cart suddenly dropped in price by a very good amount!

Ever since I saw part of Now You See Me / Insaisissable [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] on a plane, I have wanted the movie so badly. It is a fantastic movie and not only does it include a couple of my favourite actors (Michael Cain and Mark Ruffalo) but the plot is fantastic and the movie is a lot of fun to watch. Originally $26.99 it is now $14.99 and on my ‘to buy’ list.

Another movie on my ‘to buy’ list is one I already own on DVD but I wish to upgrade to blu-ray. I just adore Robin Hood: 40th Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray + DVD] (Bilingual) which is the Disney Robin Hood done a way back. It is the movie I watch when I am sick or not feeling well because it brings me lots of comfort and tons of little kiddy joy. Originally $26.50 it is now on sale for $15.

The same day that both those movies went down in price I also noticed that Robin Hood: The Complete BBC Series went down in price (though I’m not sure if it is poart of this sale or not). This series has Richard Armitage (who plays Thorin in The Hobbit movies) in it and I adore him. Originally $139.99, it is now on sale for $64.99 which is the lowest I have seen the set ever.

I have really eclectic tastes so be sure to check out the sale section to satisfy your own style.

Amazon Canada: The Flash The Complete Series $9.99 (Was $75)

Posted by on March 14, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: The Flash The Complete Series $9.99 (Was $75)

If you are a fan of the superhero genre, be sure to pick up the complete 1990′s television series “The Flash” for only $9.99 (original retail price was $74.98).

This is a six disc set that contains all 21-episodes of the very short lived run of the live-action 90′s television series “The Flash”. The set also includes the 90 minute pilot episode. I never saw this series but there are 220 reviews on Amazon.com with an average rating of 4.5/5 that can attest to its worthiness to be a part of your collection. Here is what one reviewer on Amazon Canada had to say:

The Flash Series is worth watching, some great effects, though dated now. Shipps and Pays do an outstanding job as the main characters. Shipps has a kind of wide eye innocents to his character that plays well against Pays character.
All and all its fun, and a bit cheesey at times, but after all its a comic. To bad this show did not get another season. There a number of powers that had yet to be fully explored. As well as a nice little Love interest that never really went far.
For those into superheroes its a must buy.

It is a cheap buy for hours of entertainment and a great trip down memory lane. It also makes a nice addition to any superhero collection.

Get free shipping on orders of $25 or more. I don’t know when this deal expires so the price could change at any time.

DramaFever: Free 7-Day Trial Of Premium Membership

Posted by on March 10, 2014 at 10:00 PM

DramaFever: Free 7 Day Trial Of Premium Membership

During 7 whole days, you can try DramaFever’s premium membership absolutely free! Unlike a regular membership, which has ads and content is interrupted with commercials, a premium membership offers HD viewing with no pesky ads and exclusive access to the newest shows.

For those of you wondering about what exactly DramaFever is, it’s basically a video streaming service similar to Netflix but with a focus on international movies, TV shows and documentaries, all of which are available with professionally transcribed subtitles. The vast majority of their content is Korean and Spanish, but they do also offer other language origins such as French, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese and a couple of others.

They even have popular English titles available for watching such as Waiting for Godot, Taste of Asia, The Kokology Game, etc.

A neat feature is that on top of offering the chance to sort DramaFever’s content by genre (i.e. action/ thriller, children’s, daily drama, historical, etc.), titles may also be searched by themes like: book/ manga, bromance, first love, Kpop, rags to riches and a couple of others.

Even better is that DramaFever is available for use on just about any device, whether one with iOS (iPhone or iPad), Android and even a Kindle Fire, Google TV or Roku.

Since billing information is required to start the free 7-day premium membership, make sure to cancel if you don’t want to be billed for the first month once the free trial expires. But even then, the monthly fee just $4.99 per month!

Have you ever tried DramaFever? Let us know your thoughts on this streaming service in the comments section.

Toys R Us Canada: 1/2 Priced Board Games

It has been so cold out this winter many of us have been scrambling to find things to do indoors.  Toys R Us Canada has select board games on sale for 50% off that will help keep you and your family occupied while we are trying to finish this cold winter.

All of theses games are 50% off for a limited time only.  All but one were in stock as I wrote this and there was even a french version of one of the games as an option.

Here are some of the games you will see:

I have said many times in the past how much I love board games.  Not only are they great for family time and communication, they can teach kids so many things. It is so much better to be sitting at the table as a family playing a game together rather than sitting on couches watching TV.

As for the cost of shipping, when you buy three games or puzzles, you will get free shipping on your order.

Free & Cheap Ideas For March Break 2014 in British Columbia

Posted by on February 25, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Free & Cheap Ideas For March Break 2014 in British Columbia

Since Eva did such a great job with her post on Free & Discounted Ideas For March Break 2014 in Ontario, as a born and bred British Columbian, I thought it would be a good idea to mention some March Break ideas for all of you West Coasters to take advantage of. For school districts in BC, March Break starts on March 17th and ends on the 28th, however in Victoria it goes from March 10th – 21st. In any case, if you want to make the most of your time off with your family without having to go on an expensive trip or spending $100 on exciting attractions, you might want to check out one of these cheap or free things to do this March Break.

Go For a Hike!

Unlike many other provinces in Canada, BC is relatively warm and free of snow in March, making it a great time to get outside for some fresh air and exercise. If you really want to tire your kids out (and yourself for that matter), try doing the Grouse Grind!  Known to locals as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster,” this hiking trail is so popular, over 100,000 people do it each year. The hike up is completely free and the gondola back down costs only $10 per person. If you’re looking for a less arduous but still rewarding hike, check out Trails BC for a list of great hiking trails throughout British Columbia, or Vancouver Trails for hiking areas around the Lower Mainland.

Appreciate the Arts

Art is such an important thing to introduce into your kids’ lives, and luckily during March Break, the Vancouver Art Gallery is holding a special program called LOOK! LEARN! MAKE! for families to explore the Arts together. The program is completely free for gallery members or with normal gallery admission. For anyone living in BC’s interior, the Kamloops Art Gallery is similarly offering Spring Break Art Camps for kids, costing only $15 per day.

Check Out Some Local Hot Spots

One of my favourite places to go as a child was Granville Island in Vancouver. There are always outdoor performers juggling, singing, or playing music, there a ton of unique shops to check out, and the Kids Market used to entertain me for hours! The most this will cost you is the price of parking, and instead of buying lunch you can pack a picnic and eat right by the sea. Another great place to visit is Stanley Park. You can walk along the seawall, play on four different playgrounds, and check out the famous totem poles and First Nations outdoor art. In Saanich on Vancouver Island, there’s also a great guided tour during March Break held by a Regional Parks’ naturalist for free and is open to all ages.

Do Something Outside the Box

The Burnaby Village Museum is a great place for kids to soak up a bit of history while having some fun at the same time. And during March Break from noon – 4pm there will be a special program that includes crafts, entertainment, carousel rides, and a scavenger hunt for only $7 per ticket. Over at the Honeybee Centre in Surrey, you can enjoy a tour, experience the live insect museum, taste honey, and wear a beekeeping costume for only $5 per person or $15 per family of four. And finally at the H.R. Macmillan Space Centre in Vancouver, your family can enjoy an out-of-this-world experience. You can also save some extra money if you have any kids under the age of 5, as their admission is free. Otherwise, the cost for a family to go during the day is $56 and only $38 during the evening.

Bargainmoosers, what are your plans for March Break 2014?
