You’ll also get free shipping with your order, which makes this deal even better!

When you typically think about Best Buy, chances are that you don’t really think about their furniture selection.

However, they actually sell some great furniture online, and this CorLiving Low Back Adjustable Bar Stools 2 Pack is no exception.

These sleek, contemporary bar stools can be a great fit in your home. We currently have 2 black bar stools in our condo, and they look great next to the kitchen counter. These stools provide us with a comfortable place to have a quick meal, and they really look cool, too. My brother has several bar stools in his house, but he has some interesting uses for them – he has them in front of his arcade and pinball machines, so his guests that want to play these games can sit comfortably in front of these massive machines.

The best thing about bar stools is that they’re versatile. You can find many different uses for them, and they’re also easy to maneuver, so you can always move them around and change your set-up quickly and easily.

This CorLiving Low Back Adjustable Bar Stools 2 Pack currently sells for $134.99 on Amazon. I’ve listed a brief review of these bar stools from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

Future Shop Canada: Simpli Home Dover Storage Ottoman Set of 3 | Was $230 Now $130 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 7, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Future Shop Canada: Simpli Home Dover Storage Ottoman Set of 3 | Was $230 Now $130 (EXPIRED)

Are you looking to spruce up your place? If you’re looking for some new furniture, today’s Future Shop deal should be an appealing one for you! For one day only, you can get this Simpli Home Dover Storage Ottoman Set of 3 for just $129.99 – the regular price of this set is $229.99, so you’ll be able to save $100 with today’s deal! You’ll also get free shipping with your order!

This Simpli Home Dover Storage Ottoman Set of 3 is elegant, stylish, and versatile enough for you to find a great spot that best accentuates their look. These Ottomans are a wonderful storage solution, and can be really convenient!

I have a soft spot for Ottomans. They usually help me keep things tidy and organized, which can be tough when you don’t have too much room! This Simpli Home Dover Storage Ottoman Set of 3 looks like a nice set, and you can’t go wrong for $129.99!

The two smaller Ottomans in this set are pretty cute in my opinion. My girlfriend and I currently have a large Ottoman that we keep a bunch of our movies in (along with some video game accessories), so it’s really handy for us – especially since we’re always running out of shelf space for movies! If we had the two smaller Ottomans that come with this Simpli Home Dover Set, I’m sure that we’d  put them to good use immediately! If there’s one thing that we need, it’s more storage space!

The Simpli Home Dover Storage Ottoman Set of 3 currently costs $229.99 at Best Buy , and it’s $363 at Lowes. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this Ottoman set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

This weekend we had a lot of company and had to use these for seating. I weigh over 200 pounds and wound up sitting on both the small and larger ottomans and was very surprised with how solid they were. My dog got a little hyper and clawed one of the pieces, and the leather didn’t show a mark, which was very surprising. I honestly think this is a really good deal.

These won’t be in stock for very long, since limited quantities are available. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Walmart Canada: Milano Wall Furniture System with Mount $100 (Save $48)

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Milano Wall Furniture System with Mount $100 (Save $48)

Walmart Canada is selling this sleek and compact Milano Wall Furniture System with Integrated Mount for just $100, discounted from $148. In my local stores, this unit actually costs $154 right now.

This is all you could want in an entertainment system.  The shelves are tempered glass and will display your brand new PS4, your old PS3 or Xbox, or whatever system you have along with games, ornaments and more. Evidently, though I cannot find it in the picture, the stand has a side storage compartment that is ideal for DVDs or Blu-Rays. The back of the stand has a deep espresso finish.

Attached to this stand and rising above is a TV mount that can accommodate most 26” to 42” flat panel televisions with a maximum weight of 80 lbs. The TV mount features a tilt mechanism for optimal viewing without straining your neck.

There are so many reasons why this stand is awesome. First off all: it is an all in one stand. You can have your DVD player and gaming consoles on the shelves, store your games and DVDs in the side compartment, and mount your TV on the top. Secondly, this unit gets your TV off a lower stand where it can be bumped into by children, pets, and even adults. It reduces the risk of damage to a very expensive piece of electronic equipment. Third, and this one is very important for renters, the stand appears to (correct me if I am wrong) elevate and mount your television without having to screw the mount into the wall. For anyone renting (I know this feeling all too well), most proprietors are not too happy about many screw holes in their walls – especially any at eye level. This stand eliminates the need to mount your television directly to the wall. It is also great for apartments where your TV wall happens to be concrete and you cannot screw into it.

While writing this I overheard my neighbor complaining that she woke up this morning to find her cat on top of her wall-mounted TV. Therefore, this unit might not be cat friendly if you have an ambitious little furball who loves to climb.

Overall, I think this is a marvelous deal on this kind of stand. You will also receive free shipping on this stand directly to your home. For such a large piece, that is nice.

Future Shop Canada: $100 Off Coaster Writing Desk with Chair – Now $99.99

Posted by on September 7, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Future Shop Canada: $100 Off Coaster Writing Desk with Chair   Now $99.99

Save 50% on this Coaster Writing Desk with Chair in cappuccino. Originally $199.99, this writing desk with built in shelves and chair is now on sale for $99.99.

This is a pretty minimalistic desk and accompanying chair in wood. You have the top surface, and two open shelves to store books, writing accessories, a printer, or whatever else you need on them to reduce clutter on your desk. The chair tucks neatly under the desk when not in use and – of course – matches the desk for lovely set.

This is not the kind of desk you need to hide away in a back corner of the spare bedroom somewhere. It is a nice enough piece of furniture you could have it in your living room or den without it looking out of place. The set does require assembly when it reaches you. Most assembly is better with two people so grab a friend, a cold beverage, and turn up the music. It will be constructed in no time. Just pass on the wine or else it might be constructed with some missing pieces!

While some people are disregarding desks as a thing of the past – what with laptops and so many other surfaces available.  However, I still think it is a good idea to have a dedicated work space if you either work from home or have children who need the computer for their homework. I currently use my kitchen table because of space constraints. It makes it hard to set the table and get ready for dinner because my computer, mouse, and everything piled around me has to be moved off. It also makes it super tempting to be on the computer while I eat, which is not healthy for me or for my relationships. Furthermore, I am not sure the when the last time I saw the table entirely cleaned off was because my laptop and work stuff is always on it. Thus, I highly recommend a dedicated desk.

Oddly enough, the dimensions of this set are not given. However, I expect it to be quite compact given the image and the original price.

You will receive free shipping on this desk and chair set by Coaster because it retails for over $25, which is the free shipping minimum on Future Shop Canada.

Walmart Canada: Home Trends Storage Bench $68 (Save $31)

Posted by on September 7, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Home Trends Storage Bench $68 (Save $31)

Walmart Canada has a sale on a Home Trends Storage Bench in brown. Originally $99, the Hone Trends bench is on sale for $68 and comes with free shipping.

The bench is covered in brown faux leather and the top features padding for comfort whether you have your feet up on it or are using it as extra seating for guests. I am sure your cat or dog will even appreciate the added padding when they stretch out on their new bed (so they think). The solid wood legs with an espresso finish offer support and a place to find stray toys.

The hinged top gives you easy access to the storage compartment, which is 18” wide by 39.75” deep by 22.25” high. Use the compartment to store toys, games, throws, throw pillows, magazines, or whatever else you do not need at hand’s reach at all times. I have an old steamer trunk that is quite similar, I use it for storing blankets and clothing that is out of season (like sweaters in summer).

Overall, the Home Trends Storage Bench has good reviews by commentators. One reviewer says:

I’m very happy with this ottoman. It’s very stylish, the hinge is very stable and sturdy, and the faux leather is thick and resistant to scratch marks. Overall, great value for money! I highly recommend it!

I like the resistance to scratch marks. With a cat in the house, it is important to invest in furniture that can handle his claws without giving in. Another reviewer said:

Color is very dark. We have black leather couches and it doesn’t stand out. Sturdy.

I am not a big fan of brown (love back); this is a big bonus for me. My husband came with a brown couch and a brown loveseat that were in better condition than my furniture so I currently live with brown. However, if the brown is dark enough it does not stand out against black I might just be fine with it.

There is very little assembly to do. You essentially stick the feet onto the box and you are pretty much done. With such busy houses, these days crammed full of everything you need and then everything you want, this ottoman is a great option for a little extra storage where it is needed.

Receive free shipping on any order at Walmart Canada.

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

Posted by on September 4, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

I love the idea of taking something that is old or broken and making it into something beautiful and useful again.  Something that a lot of people have replaced on their homes are doors.  Inside doors, outside doors, small and large doors and you never know what to do their the old junkie ones.  Instead of taking them to the dump (and actually paying to get rid of them) you can turn them into something awesome and useful.  We have six different ways you can take an old door and make it very useful again.  All of these ideas are inexpensive and fairly easy for the DIY Moosers.

1. Headboard

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

This awesome idea is from and you can find the instructions there.  This picture features two old doors side by side but you can also put on door horizontally as well.

2. Table

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

The picture above is of a coffee table but you could really make any type of table with a door. I love the idea of a kitchen table made from an old farm house door personally.  These table ideas can be found on

3. Front Porch Swing

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

I love this idea found on All you would need is some extra wood, some chains from your local hardware store and you could paint it anyhow you would like to match your house.  It also looks like they just used an old seat cushion from an outdoor recliner which is perfect!

4. Mudroom Picture Display

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

I absolutely love this idea.  You don’t have to display your picture only in the mudroom or hallway like this but I do like the idea of adding hooks for some organization and storage.  This idea can be found on

5. Bookshelf

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

This is a great idea from You can cut our the squares on the door and add some wood to it to make bookshelves.  It is very rustic and a great way to reuse an old door.

6.Garden Archway

6 Ways to Repurpose Doors

This idea from is a pretty simple way of reusing a couple of old doors.  Throw some paint on them, add some trim and you have a beautiful garden archway. You could also use it for an outdoor wedding and then put it in your garden afterwards.

Have any of you Moosers tried some of these ideas?  Do you have any others you would like to share with us?

Now, for the deals. While I love vintage and industrial styles, have you seen the mid-century collection? Amazing! The prices might have you shuddering a bit, but I am going to bet this furniture is worth every single penny. This also means that our 15% off coupon is going to go a long way.

My husband and I are saving up for a new couch that we will treasure for years to come. We’ve bought cheap couches and find they don’t last many years. I love the tufted look so this Chesterfield Sofa 2-seater in leather is gorgeous. I am a sucker for the red, but I think the carmel might be a better fit in my family. This couch was $2,379 and is now $2,022.15.

White Coaster 3 Piece Dining Set For Only $49.97 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop /BestBuy Canada (Quick)

Posted by on August 9, 2014 at 10:48 AM

White Coaster 3 Piece Dining Set For Only $49.97 & Free Shipping @ FutureShop /BestBuy Canada (Quick)

There is limited stock of this deal, so it might not last for long… the White Coaster 3-Piece Dining Set has recently been reduced and just now, you can pick it up for only $49.97 with free shipping to your home!

I’ve put both links above as I am not sure how their stock works… if there’s a limited number or if one store sells out, and the other does not. It’s up to you to choose which you buy it from, it’s the same price and the same deal for the same item.

What you get:

  • White 3-piece table set
  • 2 armless ladder back dining chairs

This Coaster dining set would be absolutely ideal if you have a small kitchen or dining area, and only need a couple of chairs. It’s a fantastic price!

If you did want to go a little larger, there’s another deal on the Cappuccino coloured Coaster 5-Piece Dining Set from Best Buy – it’s only $69.97. So, if you’ve got a little more space or need a few extra chairs, consider spending the extra twenty bucks and up-sizing.

Obviously, at these price points, the Coaster dining sets are probably not going to be ultra-durable and long-lasting, but I imagine that you should get your money’s worth out of their usage.

Lowes Canada: Monarch Specialties Futon Only $300 & Free Shipping

Posted by on August 5, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Lowes Canada: Monarch Specialties Futon Only $300 & Free Shipping

When I went off to university, I had my own little basement apartment, which needed some furnishing, with a bed and a couch. Since I was a university student, I couldn’t afford both, so I chose to get an all-in-one option of a futon. Lowes has an amazing deal on a Monarch Specialties Click-Clack futon, which is now $150 off. The regular price of $454 has now been reduced to $304 and it includes shipping directly from the vendor.

I love this futon as it has a leather-look, which also means it is much more durable than the fabric futons I had for school. Believe me too, you will want something durable as you’ll be spending a lot of time on your futon, both for sleeping, studying and whatever else you’ll do once you have your own place.

Buying two is also a good idea if you can afford it as you’ll have a place for your friends to crash when they come to visit. I went away to school and I found my friends always wanted to visit, as I lived in a fun party town, and of course they wanted to see me. That way, you could keep one as a bed and one as a couch, or convert both to couches when you have a party and both to beds when you have sleepovers.

If you weren’t 100% on the style of this futon, Lowes has a few others also on sale, just in time for going back to school. This black faux leather futon is similar to the one I just mentioned, but has removable arms. It is also $150 off, with a regular price of $638 and now $488. If you wanted it in microfiber, just change the upholstery and you can get it in coffee for $469, with a regular price of $619. This looks like a really nice piece of furniture too!

The other two futons on sale are both either out of stock or not in stock yet, but you can click the notify me button to see if they become available before the expiry of the sale at the end of August.

Walmart Canada: Bettona 10-Piece Sling Dining Set Now $200 (Was $498)

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Bettona 10 Piece Sling Dining Set Now $200 (Was $498)

Walmart Canada has launched a plethora of web crasher deals for the long weekend. While you may know this weekend by one of many names like BC Day, Saskatchewan Day, Heritage Day, or civic holiday, it does mean you can save a little extra on things you may have been eying up. Pick up the Hometrends Bettona ten piece Patio Set for only $200 at Walmart, saving yourself nearly $300 off the original price of $498.

This deal is pretty awesome. You are getting a full ten-piece set for only $200. That works out to only $20 apiece, which is unheard of for patio furniture. The set comes with:

  • Six chairs
  • One round dining table with smoked glass tabletop
  • One side table with matching smoked glass tabletop
  • Two ottomans

All the smoked glass is tempered for safety. The chairs are made of weather-proof, PVC-coated polyester sling fabric for comfort and durability. The frame is black and made of powder-coated steel so it is rust resistant. However, if you get scratches in the powder coating, it may rust as the outer shell has been penetrated. The fabric itself is a beige/grey colour, which fits in with most decor. I am not sure back yards even have a decor, but this set is simple enough to not compete with anything else you might have going on.

The chairs have a three-position back (adjustable!) so you can use them to sit up at the table, lean back a bit, or recline and stick your feet up. From the upright position, the chair backs recline 18.5cm in total. With six chairs, you can have a couple friends over without having to drag out your kitchen chairs for people to sit on.

There are many positive reviews of this set on with most of those reviews coming from customers who bought this set for a higher price. This customer said:

Love it, best 300 bucks I ever spent, and it was shipped on time

Well, now this set can be the best $200 you ever spent. With free shipping to your door on such a large set, you most certainly won’t be regretting this deal.

As this is a web crasher deal, I do not expect it to last very long. Thus, you should order soon before it is no longer available and you have ‘sold out’ regret. I have experienced that a few times myself.

Ergoform Canada Promo Code: Exclusive 15% Off all Furniture & Accessories & Free Shipping

With another moose-clusive for you, we’ve procured 15% off furniture and accessories at ErgoForm. This is the largest discount that this company has ever offered, and it is all for us!

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE15
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 25th July 2014

We’ve never written about ErgoForm before, so I’ll give you some information about them. They are a furniture company based in Vancouver that offers office furniture and accessories. The best thing about them is that they offer completely free shipping! This is great because office furniture can be expensive to ship, and they’ll take the cost on that, rather than put it on your bill. If you’ve never bought furniture online because you were worried about delivery fees, now you don’t have to. Free shipping is also great on large items like these because maybe you have a small vehicle and can’t just go into a store and take something home. This way, you just get the box from your porch so even most of the heavy lifting is done for you. Too bad it doesn’t come put together.

I badly need a new office chair. I have no idea the age of mine, but it is ugly, covered in cat hair and does not suit my sore back. This Office Star mid-back eco leather chair in white is sexy! It would go so perfectly with my white and black glass desk. It also has lumbar support, so it will help my back and it looks very durable. It is also Greenguard certified, which I researched and am very happy about! This means that it is designed for indoor spaces and has lesser chemical emissions, plus it is sustainable. The chair was $520, but on sale for $249. Add the coupon code and you’ll save another $37.35, paying only $213.65.

If someone is heading off to school this fall, it might pay to look at the budget/student section and get that student set up right for success. You can shop by price and there is desks in there as low as $89, which will be even less after adding the coupon code for ErgoForm.

Staples Canada: Assassins Creed IV Black Flag For PS4 – Now $30

Posted by on July 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Staples Canada: Assassins Creed IV Black Flag For PS4   Now $30

Staples has a great deal on Assassins Creed IV – Black Flag: it’s now on sale for just $29.97.

When it comes to video games, I have a really bad habit of buying games and never playing them. In fact, I still have this version of Assassin’s Creed but for PS3 sitting unpackaged alongside BioShock2, Resident Evil 7 and Call of Duty: Black Ops on a shelf in my living room. Although Call of Duty has only been played once and will probably never get played again, but that’s a whole ‘nother story altogether.

Released in November 2013, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag throws the player in the 18th century during the Golden Age of Piracy and centres around the adventure of Edward Kenway, a pirate who gets drawn into an old war.

As one of the top video games reviewers, GameSpot has actually rated this game 9 out of 10, with Shaun McInnis making the following persuading statement to play the game:

Black Flag doesn’t just present a beautiful world; it gives you a mountain of reasons to run off and go exploring.

Story-wise, the PS3 and PS4 versions of this game seem to be the same, but the real differences lie within the quality of the graphics, which you can clearly view in RajmanGaming’s Youtube video comparing the two. The colours are much more vivid on the PS4 and there are far more details (i.e. you can clearly see the waves in the ocean on the PS4, whereas it’s rather blurry on the PS3).

This game is actually still sold at its full price of $59.99 at EB Games and Best Buy. Future Shop has it on sale for $49.99 and Amazon has it at the lowest price, but still higher than the one at Staples, at $39.96.

Since shipping is only free on orders over $45, you can also check out the other two games for PlayStation 4 that you can also get for just $29.97: Need for Speed or Knack. Both are definitely great deals, although Amazon has Knack for $28.64.

If you’re on the hunt for furniture, then be sure to also use the Staples printable coupons available on our forum to save up to $100 off when you shop in-stores.

June 26 Wentworth Entryway Bench (Now $239.99 Was $289.99)

Posted by on June 26, 2014 at 12:30 PM Wentworth Entryway Bench (Now $239.99 Was $289.99)

Costco is offering a $50 instant rebate on the Wentworth Entryway Bench, now $239.99 (regularly $289.99).

With small children and three adults in our home, our front hall needs lots and lots of storage. We fortunately have a little alcove inside our front door which is perfect for a bench, so when I saw this piece I immediately went and measured to see if it would fit. We have a bench there now but it doesn’t provide storage, so having a piece that would do double duty is amazing.

Here’s what I love about the Wentworth Entryway Bench:

  • It’s wood, which allows for easy clean up (our current bench has a microfibre on the seat, looked nice when we first bought it but stains easily).
  • It offers five small cubbies underneath the seat which I will buy baskets for to keep the storage looking clean. We could store our shoes here but our entry way is small and I already installed a shoe organizer in our closet, so instead we will use these cubbys for sunscreen, head phones, car chargers, sunglasses, GPS, or pretty much anything that we may need to grab as we run out the door. And knowing me and my obsession with organization, I will assign a cubby to each member of our family (it works out nicely that there is one for each of us).
  • It has bonus storage with the drawers that pull out. To be honest, I don’t have a plan yet for these two gems but I know I will put them to good use.

Here is a review that may give you some more insight into the quality and storage capabilities:

This bench is made of solid wood, nicely finished with high quality hardware that pulls all the pieces together tightly.
Assembly took me just under 3 hours and I found it required concentration but was not difficult. The instructions are clear, it just takes some time to tighten all the bolts and screws.
I was disappointed that the cubicles on the bottom were not large enough for my size 9 men’s shoes to sit comfortably together in one cubby. I have squished them in by putting one shoe sideways, but I would have rather had 4 larger cubbies that fit shoes comfortably than the 5 that make them too tight. For smaller shoes, kids shoes especially, I’m sure this would not be a problem.
Also the wood is a little darker than it shows up on my computer monitor, but the overall finish is rich and smooth.
The delivery time was blazingly fast.

As always, Shipping is free from Costco.
