Garage Canada: Juliette Velvet Tee Was $23 | Now $5.50 & Free Shipping

Garage Canada: Juliette Velvet Tee Was $23 | Now $5.50 & Free Shipping

Garage Canada is offering free shipping with no minimum right now – so it is the perfect time to raid the sale section. This Juliette Velvet Tee was $22.90 and is now on sale from $22.90 down to $5.50.

There are plenty of reasons I like this tee. First of all, it is an off the shoulder tee with long sleeves. I like how the tee is a bit revealing at the top and then full coverage on the torso and arms. I think the combination of showing sum but not all is very aesthetically pleasing. it is probably why I like tank tops with jeans and long-sleeve shirts with shorts.

This top also has ruching at the bust to allow for a bit more boob room. I find that pretty important in my tops, as I am pretty much on the top end of La Senza bra sizes. This top also comes in the most gorgeous dark green velvet. I LOVE velvet and that does not make me a hippy! Currently I have two velvet skirts (one blue, one wine red) and a black burned velvet dress that is just gorgeous. Velvet is so soft against the skin that I want to stroke my skirts every time I wear them.

Now, feedback looks a little iffy on this top – but it is easy to see why:

The fit and type of the shirt is awesome. Def go one size up, it’s so small and the material does not stretch.

Yup, there are size issues. Even though the top is made with 7% spandex that is just not enough stretch! All reviews suggest going up at least one size from your normal Garage size.

I think this is a truly gorgeous top and would look amazing with all sorts of bottoms. Try a black pleated skirt, high-waisted jeans, or even a pair of cut-off shorts.

As Garage Canada is offering free shipping with no minimum, you should check out the rest of the sale section. This Sweater Flippy Skirt was $32.90 and is now only $9.50. This Striped Henley Baseball Tee was also $26.95 and is now $9.50. There are plenty of great items in the sale section with many shirts, bottoms, and accessories all under $10 if you want.

Dynamite Canada: Eternity Scarf Was $25 | Now $5 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 2:17 PM

Dynamite Canada: Eternity Scarf Was $25 | Now $5 & Free Shipping

Thanks to Mooser Kristy for posting this great deal in our forums. Purchase the Open Stitch Eternity Scarf that is on sale from $24.90 down to $5 with free shipping at Dynamite Clothing.

All I can say is – great deal! You would expect to pay around $5 for a good condition used scarf at Goodwill or Value Village. Therefore, this being brand new and from the original company is great.

This scarf is made of 100% acrylic fibres. The chunky open stitch and cable knit scarf comes in a muted ‘butterscotch’ colour sure to match with nearly anything you throw at it. Layer it over a jacket for extra warmth around your face. On a cold evening, drape it around your neck over a long sleeve shirt. I find that eternity scarves work really well as a makeshift bolero / shawl to keep my shoulders warm. I have often aspired one with a tank top for a little extra coverage from the elements.

Unlike many other scarves (think wool), this scarf is machine washable. I suggest laying it down to dry so you can keep the nice chunky knit in good condition.

The scarf has four reviews for a perfect 5/5 rating on Dynamite. One reviewer said:

Bought this scarf a month ago and it has to be my favourite scarf in my closet! It is big and comfy and works with everything I wear! It looks great with my faux leather jackets or even just a simple shirt. I highly recommend this to all scarf fans. It’s a great staple in my wardrobe!

There you go – more wardrobe styling suggestions.

Now, Dynamite Canada is currently offering free shipping with no minimum on all orders. This offer can be combined with anything in the sale section. This Tassel Pendant Necklace was $14.95 and is now on sale for $5. if you need a few new basics in your wardrobe, clothing also starts at only $5. This High Low Modal Tee was $19.90 and is now only $5. As you would expect, sizes and quantities are limited.

I really like this deal on the scarf because it is 80% off the original price and ships to you for free. Free shipping is becoming a rarity these days (see Margarita’s post about Walmart) so it is always a nice deal.

Toys R Us: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Heavy Armor Outpost Was $65 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 1:38 PM

Toys R Us: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Heavy Armor Outpost Was $65 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Toys R Us Canada has discounted many building block sets up to 30%. I found this cool Mega Bloks – Call of Duty – Heavy Armor Outpost on sale from $64.99 down to $45.47. Using the coupon code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY this set comes down to just $35.47. It also qualifies for free shipping on orders of $25 or more so this set will ship to your home for free.

I like deals where a combination of discounts and offers combined make for the best price possible. Here you have the original set on sale, plus free shipping as the set is over the minimum threshold. Add on the $10 off coupon code and the deal becomes really quite nice.

Toys R Us: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Heavy Armor Outpost Was $65 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

You can see how that turns out in my cart above. Overall, you save $29.52 on the toy and $8.41 on shipping.

I tried price comparing this set but nowhere in Canada is it still in stock. At Amazon Canada, marketplace sellers are asking $99+ for the set and Walmart Canada does not stock it. I turned to the USA to get some idea of this set’s value:

  • $64.99 CAN @ MegaBloks.com
  • $50.89 US @ Amazon.com
  • $59.97 US @ Walmart.com
  • $50.99 US @ Target.com

As you can see, Toys R Us Canada easily beats the prices coming out of the USA as well. This Call of Duty set features a main battle tank that is heavily armoured and comes with a heavy machine gun and main cannon on a rotating turret. The tracks on the battle tank really spin as well. There is also a buildable outpost with a camouflage canopy that can attach to your tank. The set comes with three pose-able figures with interchangeable accessories and weapons. Overall, this is a pretty awesome set and well worth the money. As one reviewer says:

The manufacturing quality is the best I’ve ever seen from a company outside of the Grand Master = LEGO. There is so much detail to the set that it’s more of a model than a toy, but don’t think that means it’s flimsy, it’s a rugged piece! I also am a big fan of the new, super-articulated figures. It can be a bit tedious to put the figures together sometimes, but you can really get some realistic poses out of them.

Many reviewers have said that this set is one of the best that Mega Bloks has ever made. They love the new figures, they love the amazing detail on the tank, and now you can love the price.

Origins Coupon Code: 20% Off & Free Shipping TODAY

Origins Coupon Code: 20% Off & Free Shipping TODAY

Origins Canada has released a lovely coupon code for 20% off your entire order plus free shipping with no minimum.

Click here to shop @ Origins Canada now

  • Coupon Code: FRIENDS
  • Discount: 20% off & free shipping
  • Expiry: Unknown

This Origins coupon code is great because Origins rarely offers free shipping with no minimum and – while they have frequent coupons for free products – they rarely have coupons for a flat discount on all products.

Origins and Origin always confuse me. One simple ‘S’ is the difference between a website that sells game (Origin) and a website that sells all natural personal care and beauty products (Origins). Origins is a fantastic place to shop if you have sensitivities, or are just tired of the chemicals they put into products. I have heard great things about the company and plan to try them the next time I am short on any personal products.

My first product choice would be the Lavender and Vanilla Oil for bath & body priced at $29. After coupon code, I would only pay $23.20 and receive free shipping as well. Lavender is a very calming and soothing scent while vanilla is one of my favourite scents. It reminds me of freshly baked vanilla cookies. My only concern is that they use a base of soyabean oil.

Origins Coupon Code: 20% Off & Free Shipping TODAY

I recently have been turning a friend of mine – male – on to all natural skin care products. This Active Charcoal body soap looks like a great soap for removing impurities. While body wash is nice, per use bar soap lasts longer as it is not watered down. Look at most any bottle of body wash and the first ingredient is aqua – water. This bar of soap retails for $17.50, but comes down to $14 after coupon.

Adult acne can be a real pain in the face… so acne control is a popular product these days. If you suffer from acne, then try this Acne treatment gel that is a top seller at Origins. I can understand why it would be a top seller, because having acne can really ruin your day. Originally $18, the gel comes down to $14.40 after coupon code. Receive free shipping on any product you want.

At checkout, be sure to select your free sample(s) as well. These are a nice way to try new products without buying a full size container. I recently had a sample that made me fall head over heels for the product – that is the way it should be!

Frank & Oak Canada: Spring Sale + Exclusive 15% Off & Free Shipping

Frank & Oak Canada: Spring Sale + Exclusive 15% Off & Free Shipping

Frank & Oak is a store we haven’t written about in quite a while. I wanted to write about them to let you know they’ve got their spring sale on right now with some nice discounts. On top of that, we’ve got an exclusive coupon code that will get you an additional 15% off anything on site, including the items in the spring sale. It will also get you free shipping, so you don’t have to pay the $6 flat rate.

Click here to shop @ Frankandoak.com now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE15
  • Discount: 15% off and free shipping
  • Expiry: 30th April 2015

Shopping at Frank and Oak is quite the experience. This isn’t any ordinary store where you stop in, pick a few items off the clearance rack and checkout. At Frank & Oak online, your shopping experience is tailored to you. You start by signing up for an account, which might be off-putting at first, but there is a good reason for it.

You’ll then be asked a series of questions, which are to used to get to know your preferences, including your sizing. This means when you are shopping, your preferred size will already be selected for you so you can easily add it to your cart. Of course, you have the option to change it if you need to.

What’s also great about Frank and Oak is that they are a Montreal-based clothing company, which means your money stays in Canada and I love that!

They’ve got a great program called The Hunt Club, which gets you free shipping on your order and any returns you need to make, 4% store credit on every purchase, other membership perks including a free try-on service. The free try-on service is very cool, as you’ll answer a few questions and a style advisor will find five items that match your profile and send you these for free to try on and see if you love them. It costs $30 to be a member of the Hunt Club.

While the Hunt Club sounds great, know that our exclusive coupon will also get you free shipping, plus an additional 15% off. You can use this coupon to deduct the cost of your Hunt Club and your order, but your free shipping will be redundant.

I found quite a few items in their spring sale that I’d love to get for my husband for Father’s Day. I love surprising him with good quality clothing, as he normally will shop for the cheapest clothing he can find for himself. It is nice to give him that splurge.

This 100% cotton flannel shirt is sexy and regularly $75, on sale for $50 and comes down to $43 with coupon. I really also love this mock neck zipped cardigan. It was also $75, on sale for $50 and now $43. My husband could also use a nice weekender bag and this canvas and leather weekender is seriously gorgeous. Regularly $165, on sale for $125, comes down to $106 with coupon.

Lululemon Canada: The Bomb Bomber Was $168 | Now $94 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 10:50 AM

Lululemon Canada: The Bomb Bomber Was $168 | Now $94 & Free Shipping

Want a jacket that is “the bomb”? Check out Lululemon’s The Bomb Bomber, which was $168 and now $94, plus free shipping.

Yesterday Avi told you about the Both Ways Bomber that is also 50% off and a great jacket. While looking at that jacket, I found one that I like just a little bit more – The Bomb Bomber, which is about 45% off.

This jacket is perfect for spring as it is lightweight and water and wind-resistant. But, you can also flip it over for cooler and drier days to the soft jersey fabric side. This really is a jacket that will take you anywhere.

I love reversible jackets because they truly are two jackets in one. No one will really know that you are wearing the same jacket and you’ll have basically paid less than $100 for what could be considered two Lululemon jackets.

There are two colour choices – bark berry with heathered bark berry and silver spoon with heather white. I think I like the white better for spring, but the bark berry is a very nice darker pink. All sizes are available in both colours.

Reviewers say that this jacket runs small, so you might want to size up so you can layer appropriately.

I wear a 10 in Lulu tops to keep my 34DDDs contained, but I recommend sizing up for this jacket. I love the styling on this jacket and plan to get a lot of use out of it this spring!

I think this jacket is great for just throwing on when going to yoga, the gym or to run errands. It does have enough style to go out as a jacket for night with jeans or tights underneath.

As always, you’ll get free shipping from Lululemon so there are no other charges besides taxes, which I do love from Lululemon!

Lululemon Canada: 50% Off Both Ways Bomber Was $198 | Now $99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 7:29 PM

Lululemon Canada: 50% Off Both Ways Bomber Was $198 | Now $99 & Free Shipping

Lululemon has some nice deals in their ‘we made too much’ section. Usually there are discounts anywhere from 25% off to 50% off – with the higher discounts being rarer. This Both Ways Bomber, a reversible jacket, was $198 and is now on sale for $99 with free shipping.

‘Both ways’ refers to the jacket’s reversibility, which gives you two different looks from the same jacket. The seams and ‘inside’ are sewn in such a way that the jacket looks completely natural whether ‘regular’ or inside out. In fact, over time you may forget which way was originally the ‘right way’.

There are two colour choices. One is a heathered white with black on one side with the atomic flower silver spoon and black when you reverse the jacket. I am not too sure about that floral pattern but it is a nice change from simple black and white or grey. It spices up your wardrobe a bit. The next colour choice – and my preference – is the heathered black and black combination. One way, the jacket is almost all black except for the zipper placket, and the other way you have the heathered black (it looks like a hard grey) with the back sleeves and accents.

Both colour options are available in sizes four, six, eight, and ten. Unlike most bombers that hit at the waist, this one is designed to hit low on the hip. It keeps your lower back and love handles toasty warm. A great ‘to and from’ jacket, this will do the work of two jackets yet take up the space of just one.

Most reviews are quite happy with this jacket, especcialy at the sale price. One reviewer said:

I took the chance on WMTM. Glad I did. I love both the floral and heathered white side of the jacket and only have one minor complaint but not a big deal. The bunching up on the bottom of the back side due to the elasticized fabric kind of looks a bit strange, but I guess I see the point of it though. I purchased my usual 10 and I thought it was TTS. I am 5′ 9 1/2″ and 175 lb and it fit perfect.

The only ‘common’ complaint appears to be around the sleeves. Most people find them just a tad on the short side, especially for taller women. However, taller women loved the length of this sweater jacket.

Hunter Canada: 70%+ Off Hunter Sweaters & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:58 PM

Hunter Canada: 70%+ Off Hunter Sweaters & Free Shipping

I just had a heart attack while looking at sweaters! Hunter Canada currently has a beautiful selection of sweaters on sale for 70% off (and more) their original price. This is the time to buy a quality, brand-name sweater at Hunter Canada. Receive free shipping on all orders.

Let us start with sweaters for those on a budget. So rarely can I use the word ‘Hunter’ and the word ‘budget’ in the same sentence. This Original Ribbed Moustache Sweater was $150, but is now on sale for $44. The sweater is made out of soft merino wool and comes in three colours: back, bright cobalt, and military red. If you desire popular brand name items but have a tight budget, this sweater is your best best.

There are another couple sweaters just under the $50 mark. This Original Wool Sweater has accenting cuffs and neckline. There are two colour combinations to choose from: dark chocolate with neon pink and putty with neon yellow. I think the last colour combination – grey and yellow – is the best of the two. Originally $170, this sweater is on sale for $49.

My favourite sweater under $50, and it may be my favourite of the entire sale, is the Original Neon Detail Sweater. With a ribbed texture, slim fit, and longer length; the sweater would be a fantastic addition to my wardrobe. As the sweater hits below the hip, I could wear it with tights in the winter to keep warm. Originally $170, the sweater is on sale for $49. I am leaning towards the khaki green/neon green colourway but the light ochre/neon orange is also appealing.

My favourite sweater, if money was no concern, would be the Original Moustache Sweater in a gorgeous black and green combination. I like the way that the moustache groove separates the two colours. This also looks to be a very thick and chunky merino wool sweater. It would be quite good for cold, wet, blustery sorts of days. Throw on a rain jacket over the sweater and your Hunter rain boots for running errands.

There are plenty of other sweaters to choose from. here are also some dresses on sale as well. The Original Fitted Guernsey Dress is one of three dresses on sale. Pick from plum or black for the dress. Originally $290, this gorgeous wool dress is now only $84.

You must check out the rest of the sale tops and dresses. At over 70% off (most $71.2%), they are quite the bargain.

Little Burgundy: Darth Vader Darkside 3D Clutch Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:29 PM

Little Burgundy: Darth Vader Darkside 3D Clutch Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Do you like to put your geek on display? Pick up this Star Wars Darth Vader Darkside Black 3D Coin/Clutch Bag on sale from $25 to $14.98 with free shipping.

This cute little clutch can also fit inside a larger purse. When inside another purse, it works well as a coin purse or a bag for smaller electronics. The clutch is a pretty cool 3D rendition of Darth Vader’s head. Stroke that prominent brow when you unzip his head to make a deposit.

While the bag says it is a clutch/coin purse, I think of this as more of a clutch. 5″ x 5″ is rather large for a coin purse. Heck, I could easily fit my cell phone, keys, credit cards, and even a tube of lip-gloss inside for a night out on the town. There is a detachable wrist strap so you will not lose dear Darth when you are out for a night on the town.

Darth is a 2D molded silicone bag so he will not lose shape. I think he would look amazing with a goth themed outfit for sure. However, I would totally not be adverse to going black-tie and carrying Darth Vader as my clutch. I like throwing a bit of humour into my outfits.

I check out the website for the brand: Lounge Fly. They sell the clutch for $22 US, which equals $27.73 with today’s currency exchange. The bag is out of stock on their website.

I think this is a fantastic little clutch at a great price. Use the wrist strap for evenings out or remove it just to drop this smaller purse inside a larger purse. The free shipping with no minimum offer really makes this deal. Usually, Little Burgundy requires a $75 minimum for free shipping – or else you pay around $5. That really eats into your savings in a hurry. Thus, the free shipping and the $10 off make for a perfect deal together.

I recently acquired the ‘true’ Star Wars trilogy and started re-watching the films. It has been ages since I had seen the films… and there are a couple scenes in there I do not remember. I think i got one of Lucas’ later versions where he had tampered with stuff. It is so hard to know these days.

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada’s toy section is ripe with deals. Pick up some Minnie Mouse themed playsets for up to 50% off their original price with free shipping.

The first toy set is super cute and quantities are already limited. Purchase Minnie’s Pet Bowtique Playset that was $19.97 and is now only $10. The set comes with Minnie, Pluto, and Figaro figures. Minnie and pets can play in the pet grooming partner complete with cash register table, food display shelf, a bathtub, and a groomer’s table.

Minnie needs a way to get around so pick up Minnie’s Limousine that was $19.97, and is now just $10. The pimped limousine has a pool in the back! The set comes with a Minnie figure, her limo, a suitcase, and what looks to be a towel.

While not quite 50% off, I do like Minnie Resort Paw Pack. This pack was $17.97 and is now $10. The pack comes with a Minnie beach figure, two water pets, and tons of beach accessories. One reviewer said:

My granddaughter loves Mini Mouse and she really loves the swim set and the bathing suits for Mini she plays with them at our house every time she comes.

Minnie’s Bike Ride was $29.94 but is now $15. The bike is designed so Fargo can sit in the back while Minnie sits on the front. The cat is included, as well as a helmet for Minnie. One reviewer said:

Christmas gift and my niece loved it! One of her favourite new toys.

All the playsets come with a Minnie doll, which some reviewers found the only downside of all the playsets. One reviewer suggested that the pets and accessories should come separately as her daughter already has four Minnie dolls! If your child wants another character to play with, the purchase the Tea party with Daisy Bowtique that was $24.97 and is now $15. Sure, you still get a Minnie doll, but the set also comes with Daisy.

Lastly, Minnie’s Fashion Ride comes with the cat, a motorcycle, and a change of clothing. There are 10 pieces in all to play with. This set was $24.97 and is now $15.

The best toys are those that work with other toys or toy sets. Since all of these Minnie themed toys are on sale, you can pick up a couple. I think the beach one and the grooming parlour would be my favourite ones, and then I would add on the Daisy set.

Free Shipping This Weekend!

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 12:07 PM

Free Shipping This Weekend!

I happened to notice while searching for deals that there are a few stores offering free shipping this weekend. I always try to take advantage of free shipping deals, because I refuse to pay shipping costs. Many stores have a minimum threshold and some just have a flat rate, but either way, I like to shop and buy what I want to buy without having to worry about hitting a minimum or having an extra $5 – $10 added to my purchase.

Dynamite

Dynamite normally has free shipping on a $50 spend or a flat rate of $9 on your under $50 order. They do often have free shipping promotions, so I would not shop at Dynamite without a free shipping promotion on, like the one this weekend.

I need to pick up some new tank tops and camis, so now is the time, as I would not want to pay another $9 on an order less than $10. This v-neck cami is on sale for only $5, with a regular price of $9.95. It is perfect for wearing on its own on those scorching summer days or underneath pretty much anything.

If you are a new customer of Dynamite, you’ll want to check out the coupon code for 15% off regular priced items to add to your free shipping.

Garage

Garage is another store with a free shipping minimum of $50 and $9 flat rate. They also fairly regularly do free shipping deals. You can’t go wrong with graphic hoodies for only $15, with a regular price of $36.90. These staples will get you through the coolest of summer nights.

If you are a new customer of Garage, you can use their coupon code to get another 15% off your order.

Ardene

Ardene also has free shipping, just this weekend. Normally, you’d need to spend $59.95 to get free shipping or pay a $7 flat rate fee on orders under that amount.

Ardene always has good sales going on, including buy one, get one 50% off on denim shorts and camo jackets. Regularly $24.50 each, you could get two pairs of these high rise cut off shorts with lace and rope belt for $36.75, plus your free shipping. Choose from a variety of washes like pale or dark.

While you can’t use our exclusive coupon code for $10 off without spending $70 (which you’d get free shipping on automatically), I thought I’d mention it to you in case you see too many things you love and want to get that extra bit off.

1800 Flowers

If you plan to order flowers this week for Easter, you’ll want to know that you can use the code EASTERFS to get free shipping on your order. Normally you’d have to pay $14.99 for shipping/delivery/service charge at 1800 Flowers, but this coupon code will eliminate that charge. This Garden Inspiration basket is very cute and will get you in a spring mood. You’ll get $5 off this basket, in your choice of small, medium or large.

Forever21

While it isn’t totally free shipping, no minimum, I thought I’d mention this coupon code from Forever21. Get free shipping on your order of $21 or more with coupon code FREE21. Normally you’d have to spend over $60 to get free shipping.

I’d pick up this two-tone chunky cardigan, with a regular price of $33.90, now on sale for $22.99 and I’ll score my free shipping too.

Costco Canada: Champion 4000W Gasoline Generator Was $480 | Now $330 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 9:55 AM

Costco Canada: Champion 4000W Gasoline Generator Was $480 | Now $330 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Costco’s got a fantastic deal on the Champion 4000W portable gasoline generator. It was originally $479.99 and now only $329.99, which is an astounding $150 off. You’ll also get free shipping as always from Costco.

Why do you need a generator?

There are so many reasons why a generator would make your life easier and prepare you for emergencies. Remember the huge ice storm they had in Quebec that knocked out power for days? Remember the blackout of 2003 that made sure many of us didn’t have power? I remember it fondly as I had to break into my house when I couldn’t open my garage with my garage door opener. With our weather and storms getting more and more severe, having a backup generator is almost a must-have.

Besides my doomsdays predictions, there are other reasons a generator is a great tool to have for the ready. If you like camping, they are great to take along with you for an alternate source of power. They are great on a jobsite that might not have power close to where you need to power your tools.

This generator is CSA approved and will run for eight hours on a 50% load with a full tank. It has a low oil shut off sensor and is easy to maintain so you can pass it down to the next generation.

I didn’t really find this generator for sale at stores in Canada, but I did find that Canadian Tire sells it in store and during the last sale they had on, they sold it for $400, which is quite a bit over the sale price that Costco now has it on. I also found a few reviews on Canadian Tire’s site, where it is rated highly with five stars:

We had a power outage and flooded my basement. That night my husband bought this generator and I like it because I can actually start. The pull is easy. Every once in while he askes me to start it so I be ready to use it, since he is gone alot. Thank you, we are pleased with this. 

Besides there, I found it at quite a few stores in the U.S., like Camping World, Home Depot and Walmart.com. None of those stores even came close to Costco’s sale price, which is actually rare, as I usually find the U.S. stores to have the cheaper prices (they just would cost too much to get to us, if they even ship here). I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is a pretty smoking deal.

Microsoft Canada: $15 off Fitbit Charge & Free $25 Gift Card (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Microsoft Canada: $15 off Fitbit Charge & Free $25 Gift Card (EXPIRED)

Microsoft Canada is offering a free $25 eGift card with the purchase of the Fitbit Charge in small or large. The Fitbit Charge retails for $149 but is now on sale for $134.10 with free shipping. The $25 gift card is a nice gift back to yourself.

I price compared the Fitbit Charge with other popular retailers to see if there was a sale on the device anywhere. Here is what I found:

  • $149.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $149.95 @ Walmart Canada
  • $149.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
  • $149.99 @ Future Shop Canada (small slate @ $139.99)

Microsoft Canada’s deal is by far the best. Their price is better than anywhere else and no one else is offering a free gift card with purchase. Microsoft’s offer is available on both the black small and the black large Fitbit Charge.

Like many other fitness devices, the Fitbit Charge shows you:

  • Steps taken
  • Distance traveled
  • Calories burned
  • Stairs climbed
  • Active minutes

In fact, the stairs climbed feature generally only appears in the higher end fitness devices. I read a review for a lower end model that was missing the ability to read incline so steps up stairs and steps on a flat surface were rated as the same calories burned. As we all know, activity that is more strenuous burns more calories so stairs climbed and steps walked are not equivalent. One reviewer at Walmart said:

I bought this about a month ago and have only charged it once! I wear everyday all day…..tracking my steps…..! I never thought I could burned so many calories just walking.

Now, you may just think this is a glorified pedometer. However, Fitbit Charge communicates with an app on your phone to improve your fitness levels. As Fitness Charge is already talking to your phone, the OLED display will give you caller ID when you receive calls. How cool is that?

At night, the Fitbit Charge tracks your sleep. Wake up to a silent, vibrating alarm instead of that horribly loud blare of the iPhone alarm. I think this is my favourite feature of all – a silent alarm for easier mornings. I am not inclined to be a morning person so silence IS bliss.

The Fitbit Charge will last a long time on just one charge. That means less time on the charger and more time on your wrist (or ankle). The sale expiry is unknown.

Vitarock Canada: Free Shipping & 10% Off Coupon

Vitarock Canada: Free Shipping & 10% Off Coupon

Vitarock Canada is offering free shipping with no minimum for three days only. Usually, Vitarock has a minimum of $25 most months so this is a welcome reprieve. In addition, we have an exclusive coupon code for 10% off your order. Just use the code MOOSE10 to save a few extra dollars on your order.

Combine the coupon and the free shipping offer with deals! I have heard good things about Greens+ as a health supplement. Right now, when you buy a Greens+ original (510 g) bottle, you will receive a free chocolate bar (valued at $9.99). Just add the Genuine Health greens+ ORIGINAL with FREE Chocosol Bar to your cart. This bundle costs $74.99, which is the same cost as the greens+ without the chocolate bar. After coupon code, receive the bundle for $67.50.

The sale section is ripe with great items to combine with free shipping and the 10% off coupon. This gorgeous bright Suncoat Polish & Peel, Lovely Lapis is on sale from $9.40 down to $4.70. After coupon, pay $4.23 with free shipping. I think this colour would look amazing with a pair of blue jeans and breezy sunshine yellow top on a hot summer day.

All natural mascara is hard to find; moreover, it is hard to find cheap. This Suncoat Sugar Based Mascara, Black is on sale from $16.60 down to $8.30. After coupon code, pay $7.47 for the mascara. Believe it or not, I have never ever used mascara! I cannot stand things near my eyes. However, I know my eyes look amazing when they are enhanced with eye shadow and such – so I think mascara would actually look pretty awesome if I could get it anywhere near my eyes.

Baby wipes are multi-purpose in a women’s arsenal. They work great for baby bums, for freshening up the personal area, and are great for makeup removal as well. These boo Bamboo 100% Bamboo Baby Wipes are on sale from $6.20 to $3.10. After coupon code, pay just $2.79 for 80 wipes.

I use protein powder in most my smoothies, which I have every second day. That means I go through a decent amount of protein powder in a month. This Tera’s Whey Organic Fair Trade Dark Chocolate Whey Protein is a new-to-me brand that looks promising. Originally $51.60, the powder is on sale for $25.80. The coupon code brings the price down to just $23.22.

As I mentioned before, anything you buy this weekend will ship to your home for free.

Fluevog Canada: Free Shipping No Minimum (EXPIRED)

Fluevog Canada: Free Shipping No Minimum  (EXPIRED)

Free shipping with no minimum is my favourite deal from Fluevog. It allows me to raid their sale section without having to add on (mentally) the cost of shipping to each pair of shoes. Fluevog shipping is $16 for the first item or $10 per item for two or more items, thus you save $16 at minimum and potentially much more.

I have a confession to make – I bought a pair of Fluevog shoes this month. I was visiting Vancouver, the home of two Fluevog stores, while I was staying all of three blocks away from the second store. I HAD to pop by. After trying on around ten pairs of shoes, I fell in love with the Hopes Promise for $329. It was one of those angels start to sing moments! The shoe fit like a glove and feels amazing to walk in! It was also the perfect short heel for running errands. I purchased the black shoes, but I really want the blue/white pair as well.

For those of us on a budget (my wallet is now empty), the sale section is the place to be. The Wearever Kiitos shoes are my top pick from the sale. These gorgeous black shoes with a little side accenting were $299 and are now on sale for $199. These shoes are designed to take you from morning to evening without the slightest foot ache! Plenty of sizes are still available.

Next, I would like to mention the Hopefuls Vow. When I was in the Fluevog store, a woman tried on the same shoes I bought and then tried on the Vow – and bought the Vow instead. She liked the colour combination – a bit more funky – and the price was more palatable. Originally $329, these shoes are on sale for $199.

I seem to be on a real kick for $200 shoes. My next choice is the Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom Liz. Two colours are on sale: the Tomato & Teal and the Pink & Yellow. I like the pink and yellow combination the best. Originally $309, these shoes are now on sale for $199. They fit a little short but are very generous on the width! I need wide shoes so these are on my bucket list.

Fluevog is the only brand of shoes I buy for everyday wear. I own like six pairs of their shoes now – and love every one of them. I highly recommend the brand for durability and style.
