Today Only: $595 Off 11 Pc Paderno Muskoka Cookware Set @ Best Buy Canada   Now $170 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)

**Bumping this again as the price has once again dropped. Get this set for only $104.99 today only! Also be sure to check out the 12-piece ProGourmet cookware set for only $109.99**

Back in September, Ivan blogged about a deal on this same cookware set as it was on sale for $180 but today only, you can get it for an even lower price tag of just $104.99 at Best Buy $169.99 at Future Shop. It was originally priced at $699.

Did you know that Muskoka is also a regional municipality in Ontario? Although Paderno’s set doesn’t have anything to do with this municipality, it’s still interesting to know that the name “Muskoka” actually comes from an 1850’s First Nations chief. Read the rest of this entry »

All Future Shop Stores Officially Closed!

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 2:45 PM

All Future Shop Stores Officially Closed!

On Saturday, countless Future Shop employees got a huge shock upon heading over for their daily shifts. Instead of open doors, they were faced with signs labelled: “this store is permanently closed” as most Future Shop stores will be re-branded as Best Buy. Future Shop’s website is currently no more but all pending orders will be executed regardless.

Back in 2001, Best Buy, a store that we have all come to love and shop at, bought Future Shop. It would have made sense to convert all Future Shop stores to Best Buy ones back then but for some reason, it took nearly 15 years to do so! In fact, 65 Future Shop stores are set to re-open as Best Buy ones within a week with the goal of improving business.

With Target in the midst of withdrawing from Canada, the sudden closing of another major store is definitely major news but what is shocking though isn’t so much that most Future Shop will officially and finally be switching to Best Buy ones, a move that makes sense considering that for a while, nearly all deals and sales have been identical at both stores, but it’s the fact that 500 full-times and as many as 1,000 part-time jobs will be lost as a result.

Although some of the Future Shop stores will simply be converted to Best Buy stores, a restructuring effort that is set to cost up to 350-million dollars, other Future Shop stores that are just in too close proximity to a Best Buy store, will simply be closed. No word either on what will happen to those locations.

Moosers, how will this affect you? Do you know someone who will be losing their job?

Future Shop: HP Wireless Mouse X4000 – Now $9.97 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 27, 2015 at 1:39 PM

Future Shop: HP Wireless Mouse X4000   Now $9.97 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

This HP Wireless Mouse X4000 with Laser Sensor is a great buy at only $9.97 on clearance. You rarely find mice below the $10 mark – especially not brand names like HP.

While Future Shop does not list the original price, I found the same mouse a bunch of other places. Here is what the HP Wireless X4000 mouse costs at other retailers right now:

  • $34.99 + shipping @ HP Store
  • $29.99 + shipping @ Tiger Direct Canada
  • $34.98 @ Shop.ca

I also found an old cached page for the same mouse on Future Shop where the price was $34.98. Using this as my basis, the HP mouse is now a very good deal. The mouse comes with 2.4GHz wireless connectivity. That should give you around 30 feet of range – give or take a brick wall. The mouse also has an extra-long battery life, which will last around 30 months. HP Link-5 technology allows you to connect up to five devices just on this one nano receiver. If you are short on USB ports, then this little nano receiver will be your best friend.

This is a final clearance item. You will receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more so this is a good time to check out the rest of the spring clearance sale.

Future Shop has some hot deals right now during their spring clearance. I ran across this Griffin iPad Habit Journal Case in purple on sale from $48.95 down to $9.95. This case is compatible with the iPad 2 / iPad 3rd Gen / iPad 4th Gen. It is a cute little case featuring little elephants all over it in a light purple and then the case itself is a darker purple. The ‘journal style’ case clips on the back of your iPad and then has a front piece to protect the screen. Like the Apple brand covers, the front piece has several fold lines so you can use it as a stand for your iPad at different angles. The case locks open into an adjustable 3-position stand. This is perfect for reading ebooks, viewing movies, or typing. I used to have one of these for when I took my iPad to class. The typing position was my favourite.

I also spotted this Griffin iPad Journal case in a sunglasses print. If elephants are not your style, try this case instead. Originally $38.99, the case is on sale for $12.99. This is not as good of a deal, but still pretty nice.

Best Buy & Future Shop: Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 16, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Best Buy & Future Shop: Fisher Price Grow with Me High Chair Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Best Buy and Future Shop have discounted the Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair from $99.99 down to $59.99. As the high chair costs over $25, the Grow-with-Me chair will ship for free to your home.

There are several different colours of this high chair, but Best Buy and Future Shop only have the brown colourway discounted. I price compared with three other stores. Walmart Canada sells this high chair for $99.97. Sears Canada has two different Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair colours priced at $99.99 each. The only place I found as good a deal as the twins (BB & FS), is at Amazon Canada where the chair is also on sale for $59.99. It is the #1 bestseller in baby high chairs right now. However, only 10 are left in stock at Amazon.

Because of the bestselling rating on Amazon, and how little stock Amazon has left, I figured this was certainly a deal worth blogging about. I know that Future Shop and Best Buy will tell you whether stock falls below 20; thus, both the retail giants have ample stock right now.

Neither Future Shop nor Best Buy had reviews for the product, so I consulted Amazon. One reviewer was quite precise in what she wanted from a high chair:

Great high chair. I bought this one because it isn’t upholstered like a sofa. Seriously, what is with almost every other high chair. These things get slathered in food so I wanted one with minimal, easy to remove and wash padding. This chair is perfect for that and it is simple to use.

Other reviewers tend to like the high chair but find it narrower than others they have used. This makes the chair compact, but it can be hard to retrieve your flailing food sprinkler. Some reviewers thought it was perfect for babies, while others said it works better for toddlers.

There is an added bonus of shopping baby supplies at Future Shop and Best Buy right now. Get $25 off your next baby purchase of $50+ when you spend $100+ on baby and kids products right now. As the Baby Sale is going on, with up to 40% off baby supplies, this is an excellent time to be shopping for a new addition to the family.

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: Bosch Tassimo T65 Was $170 | Now $70 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 14, 2015 at 3:19 PM

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: Bosch Tassimo T65 Was $170 | Now $70 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Wake up and smell the coffee, Moosers! Future Shop & Best Buy Canada have a great deal on the Bosch Tassimo T65 Single Serve Brewer right now. If you are still deciding between Keurig or Tassimo, this might help sway your decision. This Tassimo T65 Single Serve Twilight Titanium Coffee Maker would have normally cost you $169.99, but right now you will pay just $69.99. You’ll even get free shipping.

The Tassimo T65 Twilight Titanium Single Serve Coffee Maker is an excellent solution if you are in need of a compact brewing unit for your counter top. For the low price of $69.99, you really won’t complain. At one touch of a button you will get a perfect cup of coffee (or other beverage) every time. This particular brewer is also stylish, which makes it a great addition to your home or office. I couldn’t be more thankful for my Tassimo brewer. All I have to do is insert my desired flavour T-Disc and press the button. Just be sure to press the “plus” button to add more if you have a larger cup.

To make sure you are getting the best price around, I did a little price comparison. Walmart.ca has this Tassimo T65 brewer for $79 but it is already sold out. Sears.ca also has this brewer for $179.99. This price seems to be a little inflated though seeing as Amazon.ca has this exact Tassimo brewer for only $99.98 right now. Either way, the price you see at Future Shop and Best Buy is the best price around.

M y only real complain in regards to the Tassimo brewers, is the lack of flavours. Compared to the Keurig, Tassimo really needs to add more flavours to their selection. I can get my favourites like Tim Hortons Coffee or French Vanilla, but there is not a wide variety of hot chocolates or other hot beverages like Keurig has. With Target’s closing sales, you might be able to get some great discounts on T-Discs.

Here is a customer review on this Tassimo T65 Twilight Titanium Single Serve Coffee Maker:

The Tassimo system is way better than the Keurig one that I used for 2 years. I find all the Keurig coffees taste like plastic which the Tassimo thankfully doesn’t do!

The brewer itself is great. The build quality is great, I love the look of the brewer too. The reservoir is great and very convenient to have, the setup for the brewer is very easy. So far I’ve made lots of different types of brewed coffees, espressos, tea and chai latte. I haven’t tried hot chocolate yet.

Whether you snag this deal at BestBuy.ca or FutureShop.ca, you will enjoy free shipping either way. Both retailers offer free standard shipping on orders over $25 after discounts.

Future Shop: Sennheiser MM 30 G Earbuds Were $50 | Now $25 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 13, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Future Shop: Sennheiser MM 30 G Earbuds Were $50 | Now $25 & Free Shipping

Future Shop has a huge clearance sale on right now. Amoung the myriad of deals, I found the Sennheiser In-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones (MM 30G) on sale from $49.99 down to $24.95. Future Shop rounds up for their free shipping. Thus, even though this headset appears to be five-cents short of free shipping – it will still ship for free.

I price compared with a few other retailers. The white headset currently retails for:

  • $34.95 @ Amazon Canada
  • $34.95 @ Best Buy Canada

The headset is on sale at both Best Buy and Amazon but the price is still $15 above Future Shop Canada’s price.

Now, this headset is designed to work with the ever-popular Samsung Galaxy, starting at the Galaxy S2. The in-line, smart, three-button remote control with microphone gives you full control over the sound and calls on your Galaxy or other smart phone. Turn the volume up and down, answer calls, as well as control your music and playing options all from the in-line controller.

With Sennheiser, you can expect high-end speakers. The speakers feature an ear-canal design for superior fit and customized ear sleeves for effective noise blocking and better sound. The ear sleeves come in sizes small, medium, and large for a customized fit. Often, customers may need one size for one ear and another size for the other ear. I never thought about mixing and matching sizes until I read a review talking about ear sizes and getting the best fit for an underwater headset.

There are many other headset deals available at Future Shop Canada right now. The Sennheiser Over-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones (HD 429s) are currently $59.99 (Save $70). They do not have the highest rating, but often rating is dependent on price point. These Sony On-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones (MDRNC8B) are also on steep discount from $59.99 down to $26.99. Again, not the greatest reviews.

If you can pick up at your local store, I highly suggest the Rocketfish Inner Ear PC Headset (RF-PKNJ2) that was $29.99 and is now on sale for $9.95. This deal is already out of stock online but you can still reserve in store. Add this Dynex 740 Earclip Headset With Microphone to your cart. Originally $5.98, the little ear set is on sale for $1.95. Supplies are limited.

Ship to store or receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 45% Off Sony 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 Memory Card – Now Just $18 (HOT!)

Posted by on March 7, 2015 at 9:10 AM

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 45% Off Sony 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 Memory Card   Now Just $18 (HOT!)

Need a memory card or two? Then grab yourself a couple of Sony 32GB micro SDHC class 10 memory cards at either Best Buy or Future Shop as they are going for $17.99 (reg. $$32.99) apiece — that’s $15 off. Quantities are limited, so don’t miss this awesome deal!

This Sony 32GB memory card features transfer speeds of up to 40MBs and comes with a microSD adapter for use in full-size SD card slots. It’s also waterproof but I don’t suggest you make it a habit of submerging it in water. Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 45% Off Sony 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 Memory Card   Now Just $18 (HOT!)

As a class 10, this memory card is best suited for full HD images, HD video recording and continuous shooting. In short, it’s great to use in cameras, phones, tablets, dash cameras and just about anywhere else!

Arguably, the Adata 32GB Premier memory card is cheaper at NCIX as it’s on sale for $14.99 (reg. $29.98) but it isn’t as fast as the Sony one. While the Adata has a maximum read speed of 30 MBps, the Sony’s one is 40MBps. Plus, Sony is just a better known brand than Adata.

There are no reviews for it on Best Buy’s site, but at Future Shop, there are actually 3 reviews with 5/5 stars each! Here’s what one reviewer had to say about the Sony 32GB memory card:

Transfers my movies in less than a minute. I bought it for my Dell venue 8 pro tablet and it works great. It’s just amazing how much stuff you can store on a tiny piece of plastic. I got it on sale but it’s worth every penny.

Speaking of storing large amounts of data on a small piece of plastic, the 64GB of this Sony memory car, which was on sale for $42.99 (reg. $74.99)is actually already sold out at both stores, so you can just imagine how fast the 32GB might sell out! Keep in mind that some devices have a 32GB internal storage cap, so make sure to read the manual first.

Shipping is only free on orders over $25, so you will either need to get a filler item or you can also reserve at your local store while supplies last.

Safety 1st Temporal Thermometer Was $70 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca (Expired)

Posted by on March 6, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Safety 1st Temporal Thermometer Was $70 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca (Expired)

Futureshop has a great deal today on the Safety First Temporal No-Touch Thermometer. This thermometer was $69.99, but is now only $34.99. Free shipping is available with all orders that reach a minimum of $25, and would include this product.

When the kids are sick it seems that accomplishing any task is much harder. If you have ever tried to take the temperature of a child, you know that it is sometimes not an easy task. Technology is helping parents out with  the Safety First Temporal No-Touch Thermometer. This thermometer allows you to take a temperature by placing the thermometer near your child’s temple. If you have a particularly spirited child, the ability to have a reading without the thermometer touching your child’s skin may save a lot of frustration. You can also take their temperature while they are sleeping and not disturb them.  This thermometer also includes a small fever indicator light and a fever chart. Save yourself the trouble of looking up what constitutes a temperature on your phone for the millionth time. This thermometer also comes with a one-year warranty.

You can also use this thermometer to find out the temperature of a variety of other liquids. I like the idea of being able to use this to check the bath water temperature. This would be particularly handy for a new parent or to hand off to the new babysitter. You can also check the temperature of your child’s food, including formula, to ensure it is just right.

You could pick up this thermometer @ Amazon.ca but you will pay $62.95. If you head over to Best Buy you would pay $69.99 for this same thermometer. Walmart has a similar multi-use thermometer called the Safety 1st VersaScan. This thermometer is  designed to take a reading in the ear and can also test liquids, but you will pay $49.97. Grab this deal at Future Shop instead.

On Future Shop’s website there is one review but no comments. The reviewer left a five star rating. Over on Best Buy’s page there are two four-star ratings and they both seem happy with this product. Here is one of the responses:

Safety 1st Temporal Thermometer Was $70 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca (Expired)

I may just snap one of these up to replace my clunky thermometer. Mine never seems to get a proper reading. This would make a very thoughtful gift also.

Today Only: 81% Off Via Rail 3-Pc Luggage Set @ Future Shop Canada – Was $365 | Now Just $70 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:02 PM

Today Only: 81% Off Via Rail 3 Pc Luggage Set @ Future Shop Canada   Was $365 | Now Just $70 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)Wow wow wow, need luggage? Today only, you can save an incredible 81% on the Via Rail Canada Trans Canada 3-piece luggage set at Future Shop. Originally priced as high as $364.99, it’s now down to just $69.99 and comes with absolutely free shipping!

Having just returned from vacation recently, I can tell you that packing can be a real pain in the butt. If you are planning on travelling soon and don’t have a luggage set yet, then this is a definitely amazing deal. The last thing you want to do is pay an outrageous price for a set at the same time as having to pay for the expenses of your trip.

This set is made from 1200 Denier water-resistant polycord. One of the most important factors to look at when choosing a set is the weight of each piece. The lighter the set, the more you can pack! In this case, the largest suitcase is 4.2kg, the medium piece is 3.6kg and the tote weighs 0.8 kg. What’s also great about this set is that it’s expandable to offer 30% more room. The description doesn’t specify whether the tote is expandable as well, but it would be my assumption that the expandable specification only applies to the suitcases. Both suitcases also come with inline skate wheels and an expandable handle to make transporting your luggage a breeze.

The tote features a large zipper to make packing easier and also comes with a removable toiletries kit.

Price comparing proved somewhat of a challenge but I did find a couple of Via Rail luggage sets on sale at Canada Luggage Depot. The cheapest Via Rail luggage set I found there is the locomotive lightweight hardside 3-pc spinner one, down to $179.99 (reg. $675), so despite boasting a large discount as well, the deal at Future Shop is still a better one by a long shop, though do keep in mind that these are two entirely different sets. All of the other sets at Canada Luggage Depot that resemble the one at Future Shop are over $259.

There are other huge discounts on luggage sets today only at Future Shop as well but the Via Rail set is by far the cheapest one. The Travelpro Maxlite 2 3-pc luggage set, for instance, is currently $830 off and is on sale for just $299.99 (reg. $1,129.99). This one is also a very good contender, especially since it features a water-repellant coating

But if you’re looking to buy a set, I suggest you don’t wait until the very last second. These sets are selling out quickly and there is no guarantee that they’ll still be there later today, but you never know!

Future Shop: AG Home Fashion Shag Rugs Were $110 | Now $60 & No Tax & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 4:44 PM

Future Shop: AG Home Fashion Shag Rugs Were $110 | Now $60 & No Tax & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Future shop Canada has discounted two AG Home Fashion Shag 3′ x 5′ Rugs from $109.99 to $59.99. In addition, there will be no tax applied to your order, as all furniture is currently tax-free at Future Shop. The rugs cost over $25, so your order will also ship for free.

For price comparing, I could only find these rugs at Future Shop’s sister store: Best Buy Canada. Currently, Best Buy is selling these rugs for $99.99 ($10 off). Given the size of the rugs, I think Future Shop’s price is very good and this deal is only made stronger with no tax and free shipping. With no tax, you will save a minimum $3 (5%) up to $7.20 (12%) on your new carpet just in taxes.

These are both visually appealing rigs. At 3 feet by 5 feet, the rugs will cover a decent sized area and could be used in a bedroom or as a center rug in a small living room. If your front entry is rather large, this rug might also find a home there. The rugs feature an anti-static surface for easy stain, soil, and fur removal. They are also stain and fade resistant. With the latest technology, these carpets stay together better and can be vacuumed with ease.

I have been looking for a new rug to make my cat more comfortable in the apartment. We moved from carpeted floors throughout most the house to faux hardwood flooring throughout the entire apartment. After the first few head-plants into the wall, my cat got used to hardwood but never really liked it. He much prefers the comfort of a carpet to sleep and lay down on when resting.

Personally, as my apartment rests above a carport so floor insulation is rather pathetic, I also like the feel of a carpet under my toes. The floor becomes very cold during the winter so socks – or carpet – are necessary just for comfort. I have been watching carpets for a while but never found a decent sized carpet for a good price. This deal is just what I have been looking for.

Both carpets are online only and limited stock is available. The brown carpet is already under 20 carpets available.

Future Shop: Microsoft All-In-One Wireless Keyboard Was $50 | Now $30 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 25, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Future Shop: Microsoft All In One Wireless Keyboard Was $50 | Now $30 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Future Shop has discounted the Microsoft All-In-One Wireless Media Keyboard (N9Z-00002) from $49.99 down to $29.99. As orders of $25 or more qualify for free shipping at Future Shop, this keyboard will ship for free.

This is the English version of the keyboard. I price compared this unit with a few online retailers. Here is what the competition is selling this wireless all-in-one keyboard for:

  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $32.99 + shipping @ NCIX.com
  • $49.95 @ Walmart Canada
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $39.99 + $7.60 shipping @ Newegg.ca
  • $49.95 @ Microsoft Store Canada

I did find the French version of this keyboard on sale at Amazon.ca for $29.99. However, the English version was sold out at Amazon and only available for $45 plus shipping from secondary marketplace sellers.

If I ever get a desktop computer again, I will be buying this keyboard pronto. The Microsoft media keyboard is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8. With the all-in-one design, everything you need is built into the keyboard – there is no need for an external mouse.

The Microsoft keyboard has a full-size keyset and an integrated multi-touch trackpad. On the multi-touch pad, you can swipe, drag, zoom, and click. It is like the trackpad on a laptop, but this time it is built into a keyboard. Moreover, the keyboard is wireless for ultimate transportability. It also has customizable media hotkeys. At a simple key stroke, you can access the web, favourite music, photos, and more.

Are you worried about durability? Well, Microsoft says that the keyboard is strong enough to withstand a few bumps, drops, and spills. One reviewer said:

 For the price it was an exceptional purchase & works great for tv projection. Perfect for everyday use, batteries last a lot longer than I thought they would and the spill proof design makes durability a bonus

This keyboard is brilliant and I would love to use it with a desktop computer hooked up to my television. The television would be the monitor and this keyboard would act as both my keyboard and mouse. There would be no need for an extra external mouse.

Now, if they keyboard is not exactly what you are looking for, check out the Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard (K400) also on sale from $49.99 down to $29.99. It is also a good option and an excellent price as well.

FutureShop Canada: MLB 14: The Show PS4 Was $30 | Now $10 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 1:03 PM

FutureShop Canada: MLB 14: The Show PS4 Was $30 | Now $10 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Future Shop Canada has a really hot deal on MLB 14: The Show for the PS4. Originally $29.99, the game is now on sale for $9.99.

I suggest buying this one QUICKLY as it has already sold out on the Best Buy Canada website. You also have the option of reserving and picking up in store, which will save you shipping charges.

Now, this is one heck of a deal. The same game for the PS4 is currently $34.52 on Amazon.ca. Even if you have to pay for shipping (around $5, depending on where you live), you will still save a ton off money off Amazon Canada’s price right now. EB Games sells MLB 14: The Show for $39.99 new and $29.99 recycled. On Walmart Canada, expect to pay $39.96. Compared to the price at Walmart, Future Shop has the game for 75% less money. The original price for this game at Future Shop is even less than everyone else is selling the game for right now.

There are several very lengthy reviews written about this game, so check out the reviews on Amazon and Future Shop for more details. This game averages 4.5/5 stars with 11 reviews at Future Shop. One reviewer said:

Great game! It is filled with tons of different gameplay options and a staggering amount of customization options. Graphics are breathtaking and all players and mascots really do look like their real-life counterparts.

If you have not figured it out yet, this is a baseball game. Grab your bat and your helmet for this awesome sports game. Immortalize yourself in baseball legend with this game. Enjoy enhanced game play, faster response time, better player creation mod, and a pre-draft showcase feature. There is even a funky little feature called “Road to the Show” that is sure to provide plenty of entertainment.

Even if you play the game and find you do not like it, right now you could trade it in at places at EB games or sell it at Kijiji or Craigslist for more than your purchase price.

Quantities are LIMITED!

HP Envy 5660 Wireless All-In-One Inket Printer Was $110 Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca

Posted by on February 13, 2015 at 4:53 PM

HP Envy 5660 Wireless All In One Inket Printer Was $110 Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca

Pick up the HP Envy 5660 Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer today at a steal. This printer was $110 but is now only $40. The printer is available at both Futureshop.ca and it’s sister company BestBuy.ca for the same steal price. If it is out of stock at one, you can grab it at the other. Both stores offer free shipping with a minimum purchase of $25 and this qualifies.

A printer can be super handy to have at home. If you are like me, you may have run into trouble when trying to print from all of your devices. It may be time to upgrade for me. I need a printer that can connect to several Apple mobile devices, my laptop and my tablet. When did we get so many different types of devices in our house?

This printer does it all wirelessly and is a simple plug and play installation. You can connect it to your iPhone, IPad, Android device and more wirelessly. It has a separate tray to print 4×6 photos quickly without switching out the paper. You can even crop and do basic edits right from the colour touchscreen on photos and documents. The cartridges are high yield ink cartridges, which should help you to conserve ink costs. This printer also has a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty on both parts and labour.

This particular printer does not seem to be in stock anywhere else besides Best Buy and Future Shop. Perhaps it is simply last year’s model. The only place I found it in stock was from a third party seller on Amazon.ca for $170 which seems almost silly.

A comparable printer would be the HP Envy 4500 Wireless Colour Inkjet e-All-in-One Printer. I have found this comparable printer @ Amazon.ca for $99. I also found this same printer @ Staples.ca for $99. You could also pick up this comparable printer at BestBuy.ca or Future Shop.ca for $107. Better to buy the other all in one model now while it is a steal of a price.

There are several people talking about this printer on Futureshop. Overall it seems to be well liked. One user gave the tip to make sure to look for the ink cartridges in the Styrofoam casing, as they almost threw them out accidentally. Here is one happy review:

Printer very easy to setup, comes with ink cartridges. Print quality is very good and the wireless feature is great. Easy to print pictures from my iPhone 6. For the sale price, you can’t go wrong.

Once you get this printer at home, you can take advantage of all the amazing free printables available online. Check out my Valentine’s Day posts for 12 Last Minute Valentine’s Day Printables or 6 Free Printable Classroom-Style Valentine’s Day Cards for some great ideas of projects you can do with this printer. A printer can be handy for that last minute gift you forgot need now. I plan on featuring some more free printables in the near future that you can also make once you have this printer home.  This sale is available for a few days, but I would suggest ordering it now while it is still in stock. Plus you want to get started on all those fun DIY printable projects even sooner.

Bargainmoosers, what would you print on your new printer?

(PS4) Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Only $20 @ Best Buy / Future Shop (+ Shipping or Free Collection)

(PS4) Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Only $20 @ Best Buy / Future Shop (+ Shipping or Free Collection)

Here’s a deal on the Playstation 4 version of Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, a popular video game of recent days. For a mere $19.99, you can buy the game from either sister site, Future Shop or Best Buy Canada.

Price Comparison

While the “was” price on Best Buy and Future Shop says $29.99, this video game is actually being sold at varied prices all over the Canadian interwebs. For example, it’s $31.96 @ Walmart, $29.99 @ London Drugs, Archambault and $28.90 @ Amazon. The BB/FS price is the best I can see anywhere online and I’ve only ever seen this low a price point in the Boxing Day sales.

Shipping / Collection

If you want to only pay $19.99, then you can actually order this item online and collect at your local store for free. However, if you’d prefer it to be shipped to you, then shipping would cost extra if you buy this game on its own. I’d highly recommend making your order up to the $25 mark to get totally free shipping to your home.

Reviews

If you want to read some reviews before buying the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition for your PS4, I spotted one such review here on Canada.com. The reviewers opening line was,

It’s hard to deny Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a great looking game.

From the screenshots shown in that review, I’d agree. The images look superbly clear and crisp. The launch trailer is here if you’d like to view it too:

Over on Metacritic, this edition gets a Metascore of 85%, that’s very high. The user score is slightly lower though, coming in at 78%. But overall, this looks like a good game to try out if you are a fan of Lara Croft.

Lara Fun

The above image shows you the evolution of Lara Croft, from release to the present day. Lara finally wears pants again!! It’s funny to see all her characters over this time period. I dressed up as Lara Croft for Halloween about 10 years ago… and I’ll admit, I looked hawt! The style I went for was the Angelina Jolie style from the Tomb Raider movie, so it was more of a black outfit than her signature green t-shirt. In order to improve the appearance, I had a few pairs of socks stuffed down my bra… that worked well to finish off the outfit!

Future Shop: Guardians Of The Galaxy Rocket Headphones Was $25 | Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Future Shop: Guardians Of The Galaxy Rocket Headphones Was $25 | Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Future Shop is offering $10 off select children’s headphones right now. I was immediately impressed when I saw this set of KIDdesigns Guardians Of The Galaxy Rocket On-Ear Headphones on sale from $24.99 down to $14.99.

The headset features faux Rocket Raccoon fur and cute little raccoon ears as well. The orange headset colour is the colour that Rocket wears all the time. The earpieces feature a picture of Rocket and his name is written on the headset as well. The headset is an authentic Marvel licensed piece, and is wire to impress any Rocket Raccoon lover in your family.

Getting down to features, the headset has a softly padded headband with padded earpieces to keep your child’s head comfortable. The headset is adjustable for comfort. This headset will connect to any audio device that uses the 3.5 mm plug (standard). In addition, the headset has kid-friendly sound levels so your child’s hearing is protected. 30 mm drivers still offer clear sound and rich tones.

Now, I could not find this headset anywhere else in Canada – it just does not exist. However, all other headsets in this line like Minnie Mouse, Elsa from Frozen, and more retail for $24.99 so I think this is quite a good deal.

If Rocket Raccoon is not your child’s hero, there is one other KIDdesigns headset on sale. KIDdesigns Sofia the First Princess Over-Ear Headphones retail for $24.99 and are on sale for $14.99 as well. The headphones come in purple and white with a silver tiara (with purple gems) on top for your little princess. A picture of Sofia the First Princess adorns the cups and there are beautiful decorations both on the arms and in the cups. I did find this headset at Best Buy, where it is currently on sale for the same price. In addition, I found it at a bunch of US stores as well for the following prices:

  • $16.99 US @ Amazon.com
  • $19.99 US @ ToysRUs.com
  • $19.99 US @ Barnes & Noble

Given these prices in the USA for the KIDdesigns headsets, I think they are a very good deal from Future Shop Canada right now.

Future Shop offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. If you purchased two headsets, you would receive free shipping. However, you can also reserve in store and pick up for free. I think this is the better option if you are just buying one headset.
