Amazon Canada: The LEGO Movie (DVD) Only $2.49 *HOT*

Amazon Canada: The LEGO Movie (DVD) Only $2.49 *HOT*

This deal is boiling HOT!!! Amazon Canada has discounted The LEGO Movie (DVD) from $15.17 down to just $2.49!

This deal is totally awesome! It is the lowest price this movie has ever been and I suggest picking it up rather quickly before it a) sells out or b) Amazon notoriously raises the price.

Amazon Canada: The LEGO Movie (DVD) Only $2.49 *HOT*

I never saw this movie in theatres, but I have friends who raved about it when it came out. They figured the ‘Everything is Awesome’ song was one of the most memorable parts of the song and I would catch snippets of it dripping out into every day conversation. I used to play with LEGO as a child, this I am sure i would like the movie. I have just never got my hands on a copy of it.

If you love this movie or want to see the movie, then now is your chance to buy it for the cost of a cup of coffee. Yup, it is THAT CHEAP. I checked out the price at other retailers just to show you how good of a deal this is, in case there was any doubt:

  • $13.88 @ Walmart Canada
  • $16.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $27.61 @ Staples Canada
  • $20 @ HMV Canada (or 2 for $15)

Essentially, this deal is smoking hot. You will receive the 2-disk special edition of the film. I know nothing about the movie actually, except there are some legendary characters from the geek world in it including Batman, Hans Solo, and Gandalf. Here is a rundown on the storyline:

…follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

This sounds like a really cool movie especially with such awesome geek characters in it. A lot of adults, as well as children absolutely love this movie as one reviewer at Walmart said:

Bought this movie for my grandson’s 6th Birthday and he’s been watching it almost every day

My friend Robert, who is a mid-40s child, also adores the movie and watches it endlessly as well.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. At this price, it just might be worth paying the shipping if that is all you want from Amazon Canada.

Ticketmaster Canada: Concerts For Only $20

Ticketmaster Canada: Concerts For Only $20

What are you doing this summer Bargainmoosers? How about seeing some shows? Ticketmaster has a fantastic Canada Day sale on right now that will get you into the show for only $20.15 plus service fees. There are some big names available with shows across Canada.

This concert series is through Live Nation’s #LOVELIVE campaign with 340 concerts across the country. I only see 59 shows, but it says that more shows may be announced. This campaign is to reward fans for loving he music and live shows.

I personally love concerts. I haven’t been to too many in my life, as it can get expensive, but I’ve been to some really great ones with my favourite of course being Pearl Jam, who I’ve seen only three times so far. Funny enough, the first show on the list is NKOTB, who I have seen four times, twice as a kid, twice as an adult and I have to say that it is a really fun concert. I’ve seen them in all different types of venues from Maple Leaf Gardens to Casino Rama and never at the Air Canada Centre where they are playing on Monday. With this hot deal, I may just have to talk a friend into going with me.

I see that floor seats are about $123, but when I searched only for the LoveLive tickets, the seats were not that bad, in the 100s sections. You’d think for this type of sale the seats would be nosebleed, but it is not the case for this concert.

Other concerts I am thinking about seeing this summer include The Tragically Hip, who are playing at the Molson Amphitheatre on Canada Day. I’ve actually seen The Tragically Hip twice, one time being on Canada Day and I think that is a the perfect way to celebrate our country’s birthday. I’ve seen a few concerts at the Amphitheatre as well and it is a great place to see someone live as there truly isn’t a bad seat in the house.

Other famous names include The Smashing Pumpkins, Slipknot, Ariana Grande, One Direction, Robert Plant, Journey, Motley Crue and more. Don’t miss out on this hot deal as tickets could sell out fast.

Amazon Canada: WWE Survivor Series (2012) Blu-Ray Was $35 | Now $4 *HOT*

Posted by on June 23, 2015 at 3:55 PM

Amazon Canada: WWE Survivor Series (2012) Blu Ray Was $35 | Now $4 *HOT*

I do not know known much about wrestling but I do know a good deal when I see one. The Wwe Survivor Series (2012) on Blu-Ray is discounted from $34.99 down to $3.99 at Amazon Canada. The series is temporarily out of stock but you can still order and Amazon will ship when it is restocked.

You are going to get directed to this set at a different price by a marketplace seller. So here is now to find this deal:

  • look at the right hand column – beneath the ‘add to wishlist’ button
  • First link will be: “CDN$ 3.99 & FREE Shipping on orders over CDN$ 25.00. Details Sold by: Amazon.ca”
  • Click on the ‘add to cart’ button.
  • Score!

When you mouse over that, it will tell you that delivery will be on one to four months. I hope you are not in any rush!

Amazon Canada: WWE Survivor Series (2012) Blu Ray Was $35 | Now $4 *HOT*

This is what the deals like! As you can see, this is a pretty great deal with nearly 90% off your order. Of course, if you just buy this then you will have to pay for shipping but add this on to another order and receive free shipping on $25 or more.

I price compared this series anywhere else I could find it. First of all, even in the Amazon Marketplace this series is selling for $14.89. On Walmart Canada, I found the same series in Blu-Ray for $32.47. Amazon.com sells the series for $14.89 USD. There is no doubt in my mind that this is an excellent deal – I expect it to go fast!

All that remains now is to figure out what this is! The WWE’s survivor series started in 1987. It is usually a pay-per-view series that annually rings in the holiday season. Usually, the WWE Survivor series features the biggest names in wrestling!

I am pretty tickled about this sale price. Not only is this a good deal on the WWE series, it also comes in Blu-Ray instead of DVD. That is added value. I checked out a couple other WWE series on Amazon (in Blu-Ray) and they are $18 and $32.

Amazon Canada: Six Feet Under: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $175 Now $59 **BUMP**

Posted by on June 15, 2015 at 7:42 AM

Amazon Canada: Six Feet Under: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $175 Now $59 **BUMP**

**Good morning again Moosers. We are bumping this one as it is a cult favourite and now another $6 cheaper. Don’t miss out!**

Good morning, my fellow Bargainmoosers! Today on Amazon, you can get a really sweet bargain on Six Feet Under: The Complete Series on DVD. This DVD set normally sells for $174.99, but you can now purchase this for just $64.99! What’s also great is that you’ll also qualify for free shipping! Now that’s a nice incentive! It’s also a fantastic series that I highly recommend.

This set is something that you should seriously consider purchasing. Six Feet Under: The Complete Series on DVD contains all 5 seasons of this HBO classic, and it’s one heck of a show! I didn’t know what to expect when I first checked out this series… it revolves around a family that works in a funeral home, and the struggles, triumphs, and tragedies that they encounter while trying to pick up the pieces after the patriarch of the family passes away.

This is a deep show that has some dark comedy, riveting storylines, and plenty of familiar faces (Michael C. Hall, who later played Dexter, is in this series, and that’s how I started to watch 6 Feet Under). My girlfriend and I really enjoyed watching this series, and the series finale was extremely well done (unlike the controversial ending to The Sopranos).

If you wanted to buy Six Feet Under: The Complete Series on DVD at Best Buy, it would cost you $77.99 (it’s also currently sold out). Listed below is a brief review of this set from a satisfied Amazon customer:

I laughed and cried my way through this entire series. Watching it was like falling in love. The characters were so incredibly compelling that I felt I was part of their lives. This is a unique drama. Highly recommended.

This set was previously $63 on Amazon back in June (check out Eva’s post here), but that deal didn’t last very long, so here’s a second chance to save on this series! Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Amazon.ca Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre-Order Video Games!

Posted by on June 14, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Amazon.ca Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre Order Video Games!

It’s not very often that Amazon.ca releases generic promo codes which can be used on a selection of items on their site. That’s why when I found this deal, I was quite excited to see it. There are two new promo codes which can be used for a discount if you are pre-ordering video games there. Pre-order two video games and get a 20% discount, or pre-order three or more games and get a 30% discount on your order!

Click here to use the Amazon.ca promo codes online now

  • Promo code: E3SAVE20
  • Discount: 20% off 2 pre-order video games
  • Promo code: E3SAVE30
  • Discount: 30% off 3 or more pre-order video games
  • Expires: 18th June 2015

There are a couple of terms and conditions which you might want to take note of:

  • You can only buy two copies of any one game.
  • Excludes: Disney Infinity, Limited, Gold or Collector’s editions, LEGO Dimensions, Skylanders, consoles, accessories.

What’s even sweeter about this deal is the Amazon pre-order price guarantee. It simply states:

Our Pre-order Price Guarantee covers one or more item(s) in this order. If the Amazon.ca price decreases between the time you place your order and the end of the day of the release date, you’ll receive the lowest price.

This means that if there’s a game you are interested in buying, you don’t have to worry about any price fluctuations on Amazon. If the video game drops in price on its release date, you will only pay the lower price for your purchase. And as most of these games are brand new, they’re all going to be over the $25 free shipping minimum threshold too.

Some people follow certain video games and are huge fans, and want to have the brand new edition on its release date to start playing right away. I’m not like that, but I’ve known a few gamers who are. There are a couple of popular series in here which people will be interested in. Some examples of the upcoming releases:

The release dates on these vary, with many not actually being released until quarter 4, just in time for Christmas. If you or someone in your family MUST have select titles on release day, this is the perfect time to buy.

Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1-3 Blu-Ray Box Set + FREE T-Shirt – Now $40 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!) *BUMP!*

Posted by on June 9, 2015 at 1:00 AM

Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1 3 Blu Ray Box Set + FREE T Shirt   Now $40 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!) *BUMP!*

UPDATE: I wrote about this deal a couple of weeks ago but it’s now even cheaper! Right now, you can get The Walking Dead Seasons 1-3 for just $39.99, which is $6 less than what it was before and is essentially a 75% discount from its original price. Get it while you can!

Have you been meaning to find out what exactly all the hype is surrounding The Walking Dead show? Here’s your chance: right now at Amazon, you can get a seasons 1-3 Blu-Ray box set of this incredible show on sale for just $45.99. That’s a 71% price drop from its regular price of $159.99! It will also be shipped absolutely free.

Amazon’s $114 price drop on this box set is actually the lowest we have ever seen and as much as I’m sure many of you are tempted to download this series, it would be much better to just buy it on sale right now, especially since it’s in Blu-Ray!

For those of you who speak French or prefer to watch shows in French, then you will be happy to know that this box set is bilingual.

Reviews are stellar of course, like this one from a 5/5 happy reviewer:

OMG! Love this show, got it 2 days after I purchased on Amazon. Plus the T-Shirt was a bonus! It was cheaper on Amazon to buy the three seasons together vs separately. I am very happy with my purchase! Amazon.ca: The Walking Dead Seasons 1 3 Blu Ray Box Set + FREE T Shirt   Now $40 & Free Shipping (Lowest Price Ever!) *BUMP!*

The extra t-shirt is definitely a nice freebie but keep in mind that you can’t choose the size. According to reviews, it comes in a standard XL size, so if that’s yours or your hubby’s size, then awesome! Otherwise, you could try one of Kristy’s 8 Hacks To Refashion Your Clothes For Spring. The lace insert could be the best suited for The Walking Dead shirt and as for the size, you could try making it smaller with one of the many tutorials available online like this one from BurdaStyle.

In case you have somehow never heard of The Walking Dead or you have but you just don’t know anything about it, this shows is basically all about zombies. The story follows Rick Grimes, a Sheriff’s deputy who awakens from a month-long coma after a run-in with criminals. Upon waking, he discovers that the world is now overrun with zombies and he must do everything to survive as he searches for his missing wife and son. There is of course much more to it, but you will just have to watch it to find out all of the twists and turns.

Star Trek: The Complete Original Series [Blu-ray] Only $60 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 8, 2015 at 5:42 PM

Star Trek: The Complete Original Series [Blu ray] Only $60 @ Amazon.ca

Oh my, do I have a deal for you. Amazon Canada has discounted Star Trek: The Complete Original Series [Blu-ray] from $179.98 to only $59.99. As your order costs over $25, it will also ship for free.

This price is MIND BLOWING! When the DVD set dropped down to $61.99 back in December, it sold out quickly. Unfortunately, not all those who placed an order received their order. I was one of those who ordered the original series as a gift for a friend. However, months later my order got cancelled.

This time, I can pick up the Blu-ray copy for less than the DVD set cost a few months ago. This set includes all three seasons of the show with over 4000 minutes run time. This is a phenomenal geek find. I have to say, it is a bit lost on me as this was well before my time. I grew up on Voyager, not on the original Star Trek. Yet, I grew up knowing of Captain Kirk and of Mr. Spock. Of course, Mr. Spock and his logical facade was always my favourite.

It is freaky how expensive this set costs elsewhere. Staples Canada has the same exact box set priced at $481.31 (out of stock). Walmart Canada sells the same series for $305.93. I have found individual seasons around $50 or more, but I have never seen all three seasons together or even separate for a combined total of $60.

Currently, there is a two to five week wait on this item shipping. I would purchase it even with that wait time as you may never see this price again. I really hope Amazon Canada fulfills all the orders this time instead of cancelling some. To Amazon’s credit, that was the first time I have ever had an order cancelled by the online retail giant.

What are your favourite Star Trek memories? Drop a comment below and tell us if you already own the series or are purchasing it. Also, let us know who your favourite character was from Star Trek. With the death of Leonard Nemoy earlier this year, there are fewer and fewer surviving cast members from the bridge.

Amazon Canada: The Complete Beverly Hills 90210 Only $110 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Amazon Canada: The Complete Beverly Hills 90210 Only $110 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Today’s one-day deal on Amazon Canada is Beverly Hills 90210: The Complete Series. While Amazon Canada has the original price at $389.99, the going rate is more in the mid-$200 range. However, today you can pick up the series for only $109.99 with free shipping.

Walmart Canada sells the exact same collection for $257.97. I also compared individual seasons to the price of the box set: there is not even a contest. Individual seasons start around $20 and go up to $65 depending upon the season (at Amazon). Even at Walmart, individual seasons start at $15 and go up to $50 each. Currently, the same box set costs $224.60 USD at Amazon.com. Walmart.com also sells this box set for $224.59.

I was sort of on the tail end of this series when I was younger. I watched it whenever my parents weren’t home as they ‘disproved’ of such teenage drama. I thought Brandon was yummy, and Brenda was gorgeous. I think it was the first time in my life that I wanted dark hair. I liked the dynamic of the show and how it touched on some more series issues at times. I think those are the episodes I remember the most. This box set includes all 10 seasons of the show.

One reviewer on Walmart.com said:

It’s Beverly Hills 90210 you can’t go wrong. I’m so glad i have this tv show it was one of my obsessions back in the day could not miss any episode!!!!!

I have to agree, you really cannot go wrong with this series. While the styles may be a bit outdated (and the technology), many of the issues are the same today as they were back then. It is also a fantastic trip down memory lane for those who grew up during the 1990s.

While on Amazon.ca, I found a great deal on this Samuel Goldwyn Collection of six movies. Originally $59.99, this collection is on sale for $19.99 now. This is the cheapest that this collection has ever been. The collection includes six renowned movies: The Bishop’s Wife, The Best Years of Our Life, The Pride of the Yankees, Wuthering Heights, Hans Christian Anderson, Guys and Dolls. I have seen Guys and Dolls… it is an incredible movie.

Kobo Books Canada: FREE $5 Credit for New Customers, Books From $0.99, B2G1 Free Books & More!

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 8:30 AM

Kobo Books Canada: FREE $5 Credit for New Customers, Books From $0.99, B2G1 Free Books & More!

Kobo Books, the online eReading store, has been mentioned many times here on Bargainmoose. However, I am sure there are some of you Moosers out there who have not yet shopped from them. If that applies to you, then now is a good time to sign up – because new customers can get a free $5 credit on their account!

You must sign up on the above landing page. Your free $5 credit should appear in your Kobo account within 30 minutes, at which time you will be ready to buy your first eBook from them!

You can read using the Kobo app on a plethora of devices; you don’t necessarily need a Kobo eReader device to make use of it. For example, I read Kobo books using my iPad – it’s very handy.

There are a ton of eBooks on Kobo which are only a couple of dollars each – meaning you can actually score some free eBooks using your free $5 credit. Check out the great reads from $0.99 section for those.

Kobo has a special offer happening just now which you should be able to combine with the free $5 credit. The offer is buy 2 get 1 free on select eBooks here.

Some other examples in the buy 2 get 1 free offer:

Lots to choose from in there! But just as a rough example, if you are a new customer taking advantage of the free $5 credit and buying the first three books in the above list, you’d be getting all three for $20.18 in total. Example cart:

Kobo Books Canada: FREE $5 Credit for New Customers, Books From $0.99, B2G1 Free Books & More!

(The above cart doesn’t yet have the $5 free credit deducted, but you will see this as you checkout).

One book that I have read in this B2G1F selection is Chai Tea Sunday by Heather A. Clark. This book received quite a bit of coverage in the national media, when it was released a couple of years ago. It’s quite a short book, but then again, I am a fast reader and I’d devour a book if it interests me. Have your box of Kleenex at the ready if you read Chai Tea Sunday – it got my eye ducts a-flowing!

X-Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) Was $25 | Now $10.49 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on June 3, 2015 at 4:00 PM

X Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) Was $25 | Now $10.49 @ Amazon.ca

**BUMP: This has now dropped down to just $10.49!**

Amazon Canada has discounted the X-Men: Days of Future Past (Ultimate Edition) from $24.95 down to $14.49 $10.49.The original retail value of this set was $44.99.

This ultimate edition includes Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray, and the digital edition. I could not find this exact cover very many places, which made price comparing a tad bit more difficult. The places I did find it failed to use ‘ultimate edition’ in the title so it became a ‘let’s match’ sort of game. Thus, I compared based on the content rather than the specific edition.

Walmart Canada does sell this specific ultimate edition for $24.96. While Best Buy does not have the ‘ultimate edition,’ their Deluxe Edition includes the 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray and Digital Edition as well – so the same content. It is priced at $29.99. Chapters Indigo does not have this title in stock (in Blu-Ray 3D combo-pack) and neither does HMV.

Given that this set is $10 less than the nearest competitor’s price, I would say it is a good deal. My partner already owns this set, as he is a big X-Men fan. When I asked him what he thought of the movie, he said:

“It was a nice portrayal of one of the most famous comic book stories in X-Men. It was also amusing to see Professor X as a drunk! Quicksilver was also a pleasant surprise. I would give it 4/5 stars.”

The story introduces some new X-Men along with many of your favourite characters. I am not an X-Men fan myself, but I know many others are. That is why these movies keep being produced!

The movie has a 4.4/5 star rating with over 180 customer reviews. I checked out Rotten Tomatoes – one of my favourite critic sites – for their thoughts. On the tomato meter, X-Men: Days of Future Past scored a breathtaking 91%. The critic’s consensus was:

X-Men: Days of Future Past combines the best elements of the series to produce a satisfyingly fast-paced outing that ranks among the franchise’s finest installments.

Some people even think that this is the best X-Men movie ever made. Whether you are already solidly in that camp or you have yet to see the movie, purchase it for less than $15 at Amazon right now.

Amazon Canada: Despicable Me [Blu-ray] Was $31 | Now $11.75 & FS @ $25

Posted by on May 11, 2015 at 11:34 AM

Amazon Canada: Despicable Me [Blu ray] Was $31 | Now $11.75 & FS @ $25

Amazon Canada has discounted the original Despicable Me (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet) from $30.99 down to $11.75!

This is nearly the full kit and caboodle: the version includes Blu-ray, DVD, and the digital copy. I am not sure exactly what UltraViolet is so someone can pitch in their knowledge anytime.

This is the original Despicable Me – one of the best animated films to be released in the last decade. It also launched one of the most recognizable faces to come out of recent animated movies: the minion. Seriously, who does not love the minions? Whether you prefer one-eyed or two-eyed minions, minions that float or minions that wear costumes – this movie is priceless.

If you have never watched this movie, you MUST BUY IT. I love how this movie does what few movies ever do… distorts the boundaries between good and evil with orphans, unicorns, minions, and evil plots thrown into the mix.

As one reviewer on IMDB said:

It is incredibly rare to see a single dad portrayed in such a positive light. While Gru has an admittedly “bad” vocation, there are unbelievably sweet moments between him and the three children, probably aided by the juxtaposition of tiny girls to a large, “bad” guy.

My favourite scene is when Gru is trying to break into Vector’s lair to steal back the shrink ray. That is one seriously loaded fortress! The antics are somewhat childish but that is what makes them so much fun. You root for Gru even though he ends up borrowing a few orphans to unleash his nefarious plan. I now always say “light-bulb” in a Gru accent. I have Despicable Me to thank for that!

Despite the content being priceless, the movie does cost a few dollars. I price compared this exact set with other online retailers. I found the same Despicable Me combo for $19.96 @ Walmart Canada and $24.81 @ Staples Canada. The cheapest Blu-Ray Despicable Me @ Best Buy costs $22.99.

Despicable Me also did something that is very hard to do: it had a sequel nearly as good as the original. Some may argue it was slightly better too. “Lipstick Taser!” I highly recommend both movies but still consider the first my favourite.

Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Season [Blu-Ray] Only $25 @ Walmart

Posted by on May 8, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Season [Blu Ray] Only $25 @ Walmart

Walmart Canada has discounted Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season [Blu-Ray] version for just $24.97. Ship to your local Canada Post location for free shipping on any order (no minimum). Alternatively, receive free shipping on orders of $50 or pay $4.97 for shipping orders under the free shipping minimum.

No matter what shipping option you choose, even if it is paying $4.97, this deal is well worth it. A quick price comparison with other websites shows Walmart’s price is great.

Amazon Canada has Season 1 of Game of Thrones [Blu-Ray] priced at $49.99. Some season one sets come with bonuses like the DVD copy as well or a journal. All of those are priced well above the $50 mark. I even found some bundles of season one and season two together. The bundles usually retailed for $79.99, which is nearly $40 per season. When in stock at Chapters, the set was $59.95. Back in April there was a deal on the DVD version for $20.49. Now the Blu-Ray version is only $4 or so more expensive.

This set includes the Blu-Ray version and the digital copy so you can play this season on your computer, tablet, or smart phone. I rarely use my digital movie copies, and I wonder if I am odd in that way or if most people just ignore the digital copy.

I will admit that I know very little about Game of Thrones – I have never watched the series (too much death) and I have never read the books. My partner is currently as clueless as I am, though that is about to change. He is just finishing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series (last book!) and already bought book one from Martin’s Game of Thrones.

Some people argue that the books are better, while others prefer the HBO series. However, everyone agrees that they get very nervous about Martin killing off their favourite characters. I remember a Facebook status from a friend of mine when his favourite character was killed off – very emotional!

While many seasons have been released since, HBO’s Game of Thrones is very expensive to buy. Even on steep discount, most of them still retail for $50+. This is your opportunity to purchase season one for a much more palatable price.

M*A*S*H: The Complete Collection Was $200 | Now $67 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 4, 2015 at 11:57 AM

M*A*S*H: The Complete Collection Was $200 | Now $67 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

I am a huge fan of the TV series M*A*S*H – in fact I own the Martinis and Medicine collection. Today only, Amazon Canada has discounted M*A*S*H: The Complete Collection from $199.98 down to $67.49 with free shipping.

The cheapest this collection has been before is $116.89 from my research. My price comparing with other stores did not go so well. I could not find this collection at other common DVD retailers like Best Buy or Walmart Canada. I did find the individual seasons priced at $10 each for seasons one through five and $14.97 each for seasons six through 10. Their collection is missing season 11 and the move. If you purchased these individually at Walmart Canada, then your entire cost would be $124.85. Even on eBay you are going to pay over $90 for the complete set (previous edition).

I am SO glad that they rereleased this set. I am just trying to convince myself that I can afford to buy it. The Martinis and Medicine box set is crap. The disks are great and the packaging had promise… but they used crappy glue on the box set so the slots for the DVDs are actually falling apart. This new box set was just released last year (in the fall) and shows great promise! I want it so badly.

The box aside, M*A*S*H is one of the greatest TV shows ever written. I am sure everyone has their favourites, but I really marvel at how the show went through such a major change in cast successfully. Trapper, Frank, and Henry were fabulous in the first few seasons… and I thought I would miss them terribly… but the replacements were just as good. I think Honeycut is refreshing and the arrogant Charles may just be my favourite character besides Hawkeye. I love how they play off each other!

I watch M*A*S*H quite often – it is one of my favourite shows. The episodes are just long enough for a good exercise session on my recumbent bike. I used to exercise to M*A*S*H all the time, but I became rather lazy for a while. Just two weeks ago I started again – at Season 1. I have made it to Season 7 before… and I look forward to making it all the way through season 11!

By the way, does anyone remember what M*A*S*H stands for?

Veronica Mars Complete Series + Movie Only $38 @ Amazon.ca

Veronica Mars Complete Series + Movie Only $38 @ Amazon.ca

Amazon Canada is offering an incredible deal on the complete Veronica Mars TV series plus the movie (Amazon Exclusive) that just came out last year. The set originally retailed for $135 and is now on sale for $37.99 with free shipping.

I am very happy with this price point. I broke down the price at Amazon Canada by adding up the cost of each individual season and the movie to see what you would pay should you purchase these items separately.

  • Veronica Mars: Season 1 = $12.49
  • Veronica Mars: Season 2 = $12.49
  • Veronica Mars: Season 3 = $12.49
  • Veronica Mars: The Movie = $8.79

The total value for this set, if purchased individually at Amazon Canada, is $46.26. Of course, each of the seasons and the movie are currently steeply discounted. I know the movie alone is a killer price because my partner bought it for $10 just a few weeks ago (at Target’s closing out sale) and that was the best price it was then.

I also tried to compare this set with other retailers. Walmart has incredibly low prices on Veronica Mars, with each season retailing below $10. I added up the cost for each season ($9.88 x 3) and the movie ($8.88). That total came to $38.52 – still higher than Amazon Canada’s complete series price. Walmart Canada now has a free shipping minimum of $50, so there is also shipping costs to consider.

I have never watched the series, but my partner owns all three seasons and now the movie. He even saw the movie on the big screen as it was at select theatres across Canada. He said:

The series is a great mystery in which your never quite sure who the hero or villain is. There is great character development in which people even change professions. I found the series enjoyable to watch and that is why I added it to my collection. I could not wait for the movie to be released in order to see what happened to all the characters.

While this set certainly does not have the ‘retail value’ that Amazon Canada likes to advertise, it is certainly the best price for this series and the movie right now. I do wish they offered this same package in Blu Ray, but no luck. The complete set with movie is available at this special price in DVD only.

This is a one-day deal on the Veronica Mars series plus movie.

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Was $150 | Now $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX.ca

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Was $150 | Now $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX.ca

Gamers should check out this awesome deal at NCIX.ca. Right now, you can grab the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard that was $149.99 for only $99.99. Free shipping is included for this item only, sweetening the deal.

When you are into the game, a regular keyboard just does not hold up to the beating you are going to give it. This Logitech G710+ Mechanical Keyboard is built to keep up with you so all you have to worry about is defeating the enemy and victory. While I am not a serious gamer, I have played enough to break a few keys on my keyboard before. It is utterly frustrating when you are in the moment and about to defeat the villain when your keyboard gets stuck. This keyboard can keep you back in the game.

This mechanical keyboard also comes with some extra features that are handy. This keyboard comes with six programmable G keys, which allow for a total of 18 functions you can have available in your game quickly and easily. Despite being mechanical, the keys make a minimum amount of noise on this keyboard and the reviews seem to reflect that also. Sometimes these keyboards say they are quiet, but when you actually start wailing on them, they are suddenly loud and distracting. This also has four backlight brightness settings, perfect for being able to see the keys without distraction. This keyboard also comes with a three-year limited hardware warranty and a detachable palm rest.

Price Comparison

I did quite a bit of snooping on this deal, and this price is the lowest price we ever see on this mechanical keyboard. Check out some of the prices I found bellow.

Reviews

One thing I noticed right away is that everywhere around the web the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has solid reviews. A few reviewers have noted that the keys can develop hairline fractures over time. I feel like almost any gaming keyboard can eventually develop that issue. Reviews on multiple websites noted that friends recommended this specific keyboard, both for price and functionality. Here is one reviewer who seems happy with the purchase.

I think I’ve found the keyboard I will be using for the next few years. I’ve tried one other mechanical keyboard before this and felt it was too noisy while typing and it had the same switches as this one does. It also comes with a USB pass-through port for connecting your mouse. It also has just the right selection of other functionality to suit my needs.

Do not wait any longer Bargainmoosers! Grab yours before this sale is over.
