Future Shop: $200 Accent Chairs – Save 50%

Posted by on December 5, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Future Shop: $200 Accent Chairs   Save 50%

Furniture deals are always precious because furniture is so expensive to begin with. Starting today, Future Shop is offering 50% off select accent chairs, bringing these $400 chairs down to just $199.99 each.

While there are many different colours to choose from, there are only five different styles of chairs. Whichever chair you choose, it will only cost you $199.99, which is 50% off the original price.

The Erica Accent Chair is available in teal, charcoal, natural, or rice paper (red). Erica features a mid-rise back and arms with a double row of metal button accenting. The chair has more of a square shape, with a wooden frame and fabric seat cover. This is one of my favourite styles as it borrows a little old world glamour at a reasonable price.

The Grayson Accent Chair comes in brown, red, or white. Enjoy the 360-degree swivel motion. The polyester cover will be easy to clean and the minimalist profile will not take up much space in your house.

I prefer the Marilyn Accent Chair as it combines some of my favourite characteristics from the Grayson and the Erica. This is also a 360-degree swivel chair, but with a flared back and gorgeous curves. The PU fabric looks like faux leather and should hold up well to kids and pets alike. The chair is available in red, black, or white.

The Durian Polyester Accent Chair is a solid chair with a curved back and seamless arm rests. This chair comes in Aubergine (purple), berry (red), and rice paper (beige). Out of all the chairs, this is the only one available in a purple.

Last but not least, the Daphne Chaise Lounge is a beautiful lounge chair available in brown or white. I have honestly dreamed of having one of these in my house almost all my life, I have just never had the room. Pick up this beauty for just $200 as well.

This is a great sale from Future Shop, and if these sell out, you can find them at Best Buy for the same price as well. The best part of this deal is that these chairs will ship for free (as they cost over $25) if you are in an urban location.

Future Shop Canada: Sonax TV Stand With Wine Rack (For TVs Up To 58″) | Was $270 Now $130

Future Shop Canada: Sonax TV Stand With Wine Rack (For TVs Up To 58) | Was $270 Now $130

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Today, Future Shop has a one-day deal on their Sonax TV Stand With Wine Rack (For TVs Up To 58″), and you could save big! This intriguing TV stand with an integrated wine rack normally sells for $269.99, but you can now buy this cultured piece of furniture for just $129.99! That’s $140 off the regular price! Best of all, you’ll also qualify for free shipping!

This Sonax TV Stand With Wine Rack (For TVs Up To 58″) is one sweet piece of furniture. If I didn’t just buy a TV stand last year, I would have totally picked up this Sonax product. In fact, my girlfriend and I bought a separate wooden upright wine rack last year for $150, and that was from a flea market! It was brand new (it was from one of the furniture outlets that set up shop in this particular flea market), but it was actually selling for a better price than other wooden wine racks that we found at other furniture stores.

The fact that this Sonax TV Stand With Wine Rack (For TVs Up To 58″) combines a TV stand with a wine rack makes this a great conversation piece, especially when you have company over. It’s great to look at, it’s cool, and best of all, it’s a great way to store your wine!

If you wanted to purchase this Sonax TV Stand With Wine Rack (For TVs Up To 58″) from Best Buy today, it would cost you $269.99, and it’s selling for $397.82 at Lowes! If you need a new TV stand for your flat-screen television, or if you’ve been looking for a convenient wine storage solution, then you need to check out today’s deal at Future Shop.

I hope you all have a great day today!

Amazon Canada: Sonax Headboard Clearance Now $34 – $51

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

Amazon Canada: Sonax Headboard Clearance Now $34   $51

Amazon Canada has two headboards on clearance price. Purchase a twin size headboard for just $33.97 or a queen size headboard for just $50.97. While I rather doubt the original prices listed, these prices are substantially less than the lowest price for headboards at other retailers.

The single headboard is white while the queen headboard is black. I was very pleased to be able to price compare the queen headboard with a few other retailers.

  • $149.94 @ Staples Canada
  • $149 @ Newegg Canada (OOS)
  • $59.97 @ Best Buy & Future Shop

As this is an older model headboard, most of the places I found it were out of stock and no longer showing the original price. However, given that Newegg and Staples so closely agree on price, I do believe around $150 was the original retail price of this headboard. Future Shop and Best Buy both have this headboard on clearance, but Amazon Canada beats that price by $9.

I was also looking at Walmart for what your cheapest alternative was via the big box store. Their cheapest queen headboard is $87.97 so you are certainly getting a great deal on this Sonax Plateau queen headboard.

I also price compared the single headboard. I found it for:

  • $99.94 @ Staples Canada
  • $39.97 @ Best Buy & Future Shop

I assume around $100 was the original price. Best Buy and Future Shop both have this headboard on clearance, but again Amazon Canada beats their price. This time Amazon’s price is $6 cheaper.

Looking at Walmart Canada, the cheapest twin/single size headboard they have costs $89 so this one for $34 is great. The single headboard should fit both a single and a twin bed. The queen size headboard will also fit a double bed.

These headboards are made in Canada and will work with most standard bed frames. If you have a Sonax bed-frame from one of these collections, then your new headboard should match beautifully. Both the Frost White and the Black are such neutral colours that they should match with any design you are working with.

The reviews are mixed for the queen headboard (no reviews for the single), so take a little time to educate yourself and be ready to make a return if one arrives not as described (like missing screw holes).

Both those headboards qualify for free shipping from Amazon Canada.

Lowe’s Canada: 50% Off Table Lamps & Free Shipping

Posted by on November 2, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Lowes Canada: 50% Off Table Lamps & Free Shipping

Lowe’s Canada has a bunch of fantastic table lamps on sale for 50% off with free parcel shipping to your door. With darkness descending earlier each night, now is the time to tap into the light.

This past week I was on the hunt for two bedroom lamps as our room was sorely in need of light due to the ever-earlier onset of night each evening. Luckily, I found two beautiful vintage gold-toned lamp bases and two gently used shades that are just gorgeous paired together. The bedroom is all the better for it… no more running into the edge of the dresser! While searching for my own laps, I ran across some great deals on other lamps to share with you.

This White Finish Table Lamp with Pink Non-Woven Fabric Shade would make a bedside lamp for a girl’s bedroom. The white base provides a nice neutral pallet and the pink shade will go well with girly-girl decor. Originally $39.99, the lamp is now on sale for $19.99.

Oddly enough, this Chrome Finish Non-Woven Fabric Shade Table Lamp reminds me of Totoro from the studio Ghibli movie. The grey or white shade (your choice) and chrome base will fit into almost any room and I can certainly see this is a boy’s bedroom. Pay only $19.99 (was $39.99).

The Chrome Finish Metal Cut-Out Table Lamp with Chrome Finish Shade is a stunning decorative lamp that would look lovely on a front entry table, on a shelf, or on your mantle. I think the metal-cut out is cool. It will add warmth to your house but is not a lamp particularly well suited to providing reading light. Originally $49.99, it is now on sale for $24.99. There are two different style lamps – one and two – with the metal cutout shade that you can buy for $32.49, was $64.99.

This Gracious Living 22-in Pewter Ginger Jar Metal Lamp looks like a good end table lamp. It also comes in a neutral colour palate with a dark grey base and a beige (ginger) shade. I find that most lamps come in fairly neutral tones so they can match many different people’s tastes. Originally $64.99, the lamp is just $32.49 now.

I am sure the DSI 22 1/4-in Brushed Nickel Table Lamp will be popular as it has a white shade, simple nickel base, and a crystal bead for decoration. Originally $64.99, the lamp is also just $32.49. There are plenty more lamps on clearance right now with free parcel shipping so be sure to visit Lowe’s Canada.

Future Shop Canada: Gen-Lite Tripod Lamps – Now $77 (Save $33)

Posted by on October 28, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Future Shop Canada: Gen Lite Tripod Lamps   Now $77 (Save $33)

Let there be LIGHT! So we are getting into the gloomy days of where daylight keeps getting shorter and the lights come on earlier and earlier. If your home, like mine, is quite poorly lit then you need to invest in a new lamp or two right away. Pick up a Gen-Lite Tripod Lamp for $76.99 to $77.69 (depending on colour). You save $33 off the original price of each lamp and get a wicked cool lamp.

Now for a little story. I have actually seen and handled this lamp in person – I love it. It seems to be good quality; it looks visually interesting and feels solid. I nearly purchased it too except it had the thingy for turning the lamp on upon the cord and I really do not like that. In addition, I had found the lamp at The Brick supposedly during some huge sale. I was mindful enough to price compare and was floored at the markup. This lamp is priced at $139.97 right now on The Brick’s website (when I enter my postal code). The lamp is also $138 at Home Depot and $119 at Lowes. What all this should tell you is that this is a great lamp at a VERY good price at Future Shop (and Best Buy) right now.

This lamp comes shaped like a tripod, which is about as funky as you can get. As a person who loves photography, you are certainly talking my kind of lamp. Next, the three wooden legs are made of reclaimed wood and finished with a distressed look. Don’t worry, this tripod won’t suddenly close up on you. The metal crossbeams lock into place with a screw so your lamp is sturdy and secure. Anything that is not wood is either lampshade or made of metal.

The one lamp has a white fabric lampshade with brown legs. The black lamp is just that – black with distressed legs and a sackcloth lampshade. There are not very many of these currently in stock. Currently there are nine white lamps and five black lamps. However, if these sell out you can also find the same deal at Best Buy. Just click here for the black and here for the white. Quantities are also limited on their website.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Hudson’s Bay: Simmons BeautySleep Muirfield EuroTop Set Up to 75% Off

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Hudsons Bay: Simmons BeautySleep Muirfield EuroTop Set Up to 75% Off

Hudson’s Bay Canada has a phenomenal deal on this Simmons BeautySleep Muirfield EuroTop Set. Receive up to 75% off this mattress and regular or low profile box spring set. This set cannot be ordered online; it must be phoned in or bought in store.

I find it super inconvenient that you cannot order the set online. I hate that you must phone in to place your order, as I hate phoning companies. You can also pop into your local store if you are in the neighborhood and place the order there. I suggest bringing a copy of the sale page or having your smartphone along so you can show them the price.

Speaking of prices, here is how the discount tier looks:

  • Twin Was $1,198 | Now $398
  • Double Was $1,398 | Now $468
  • Queen Was $1,498 | Now $498
  • King Was $1,998 | Now $668

This is a firm support mattress with a memory foam layer to support your back and provide contouring, pressure-relieving comfort. The queen size mattress has 768 pocket coils with a 360-degree wrap around foam. The wrap around foam provides comfort for those who tend to sleep on the end of their bed, just clinging to the mattress for safety.

The mattress is Euro top style and they recommend a low profile base to make it easier to climb in and out of bed. These mattresses tend to be very thick so it can be quite the jump to get into bed if you have a higher base.

With a 10-year warranty, your bed is sure to last.

I checked with their chat line to see if I could order the mattress online, but it was a no go. For ordering, you can contact the main Hudson’s bay line:

Im so sorry you had to call in to purchase that from our Major home Fashions that department closed at 9pm EST on Sunday they will reopen tomorrow morning at 7am EST mattresses can only be ordered through them at 1-888-257-6784

I got that response from their customer service. You can also contact your nearest store and go through them.

Overall, I think this mattress is a fantastic buy for anyone that is on a budget and needs to replace his or her old bed. A queen set for $500 is just fantastic! A better sleep leads to a happier and more productive you.

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. After all, they’re an electronics giant that’s known for always having the latest televisions, cell phones, movies, video games, and computers. 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:

Quality and price are on point. Very elegant looking stools. Some assembly required, but very simple. You will be happy with these I am certain. They arrived in very well protected shipping package. 

If you’re looking for some high quality bar stools, all you need to do is check out this deal. Happy hunting, my fellow bargain hunters!

Either way, this is one heck of a deal. After all, it normally sells for $169.99 at Best Buy, and Sears has a similar model that’s also $169.99.

I’ve included a brief review of this Eddie Bauer Deluxe High Chair from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

Nice soft (and washable) seat, tray slides in and out smoothly, and easy to adjust height and recline. Lost a star because the harness seems to be too big for my baby. Will need to investigate if there is a fix for that. Overall a very nice chair!

This deal will expire before midnight tonight. Limited quantities are available, so it may not even be in stock for very long. Either way, if you need a high chair for your baby, check out this deal at Future Shop. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

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)

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.
