Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: B2G1 Free On All TV Shows

Posted by on May 28, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: B2G1 Free On All TV Shows

Both Best Buy and Future Shop have a fantastic deal on right now. Buy two TV seasons and get one free. This is a great opportunity for you to stock up on a few seasons of a show you love or have been meaning to watch.

With Summer comes bland TV (mainly). With the exception of True Blood and Orange is the New Black starting new seasons this Summer, there is not usually much else on. And, there is good reason for that considering it is so nice out and you shouldn’t really be sitting in front of the tube. But, on rainy days and tired evenings, you do want to have the option to veg in front of the TV. What I also like about DVDs or BluRays of TV seasons is that you can take them with you camping or to the cottage.

The sale is only on select titles but I see a huge range of titles available. One of my favourite shows and a must-see for anyone who hasn’t seen it is Dexter. Both places has the first season, second and third season on for $34.99 each. But, here’s the kicker – Amazon sells these seasons cheaper than Best Buy and Future Shop but when you add the cost of the three seasons at Amazon versus paying for two seasons at Best Buy or Future Shop with one season free, you get the same price. But, this isn’t true for all of the TV series available in this sale, so you might want to price compare with Amazon before you shop to see what is the best deal.

I really want to see the series 24, which Future Shop is selling for $14.99 a season, as compared to Amazon, who sells it for $19.97 a season. This makes Future Shop by far the winner of the price wars, because a total for three seasons would be $29.98 at Future Shop, compared to $59.97 at Amazon.

Both Best Buy and Future Shop will ship on purchases over $20, which could also impact where you might buy your shows since there are shows with prices as low as $11.99 and with Amazon shipping for free at $25 or more, you wouldn’t even reach that threshold.

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Comfort Sleep Pillow Only $35 (Was $90)

Posted by on May 7, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Future Shop Canada: ObusForme Comfort Sleep Pillow Only $35 (Was $90)

Today only, Future Shop has a hot deal on a cool pillow. Get the ObusForme Comfort Sleep contoured pillow in white for only $34.99, which saves you $55!

If there is one thing that makes a good sleep – it is a pillow. It isn’t the bed or the bedding or even the room, it is the pillow. I really never understood why hotels spend so much money have these luxurious duvets, sleep number beds and beautiful rooms but then the pillows are complete crap! They are usually rock hard or just so soft you sink right into it and get suffocated by the pillow surrounding your face. I always take my pillow when I travel locally, but on my recent trip away there was no room for it in my bag, so I had to make due with the horrible pillows in my fabulous hotels.

This contoured pillow looks like a winner, at a good price. It supports the curvature of your neck and has a soft breathable cover. This means this pillow is ergonomic for those who might have neck or shoulder troubles. It could also be great to prevent these problems too. I know my mother-in-law has a pillow like this and swears by them.

The ratings vary, but most are 5-star. Reviewers like the firmness of the pillow and the high-quality material. The one complaint was that it can be too hard if you aren’t used to a firm pillow and that the contour might be too high. You might just need to try it out and for such a low price, it isn’t a big deal if it ends up a guest pillow.

Shipping for this pillow will be free as the price is over $20.

Future Shop Canada: Spend $100 On Health & Home Products, Get Foot Spa For $5 ($39.99 Value)

Posted by on April 27, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Future Shop Canada: Spend $100 On Health & Home Products, Get Foot Spa For $5 ($39.99 Value)

Treat your feet to a new foot spa for just $5 when you spend $100 or more on home, furniture, travel, health, beauty, or baby products at FutureShop.ca.

Since Future Shop expanded into categories like furniture, luggage, and baby products, they’ve had some interesting deals. From LEGO sets to diamond jewellery, a wide assortment of products are now available online. This $5 foot spa with purchase is a good example.

For a limited time, if you spend $100 or more on products from the home, furniture, travel, health, beauty, or baby sections, you can add a Homedics Bubble Bliss Foot Spa for $5. This foot spa is normally $39.99 and would make a pretty good Mother’s Day gift (if you’re willing to give it up, that is). The same spa is currently selling for the full $39.99 price at Sears and Best Buy, so the $5 add-on price at Future Shop is pretty sweet.

And Future Shop has a number of other promos running too, which should make it easy to come up with your qualifying $100 purchase. Here’s a look at some of the offers:

Shipping is free on most FutureShop.ca orders of $20 or more.

Future Shop: ASUS Laptop 760GB HDD / 8GB RAM Now $399.99 (Save $80)

Posted by on April 14, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Future Shop: ASUS Laptop 760GB HDD / 8GB RAM Now $399.99 (Save $80)

Future Shop has a pretty sweet deal on an ASUS laptop just loaded with a 750 GB hard drive, 8GB of RAM (memory), and an Intel Pentium 2117U processor. On sale for $399.99, you save $80 off the original price of $479.99.

Laptop deals are hard to compare apple to apples as there are so many different brands and configurations within a brand and even a model. However, I found the exact same model with an inferior amount of RAM for a higher price elsewhere. Best Buy has the ASUS X551CA with the same size of hard drive but only with 6GB of RAM for $499.99. So not only are you getting more RAM at Future Shop, you are getting your computer for $100 cheaper.

Most computers around the $400 price range these days are clocking in around a 500GB hard drive with 4GB of RAM, sometimes 6GB. ASUS might not be the first name you think of when you say “I need a new computer” but you can get a lot of value tucked into one of these units for a price that cannot be beat.

You will receive free shipping with your computer purchase as it costs over $20.

Futureshop Canada: $10 off Titanfall for xBox One (Just $50)

Posted by on April 4, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Futureshop Canada: $10 off Titanfall for xBox One (Just $50)

Get one of the hottest new games on the xBox One for $10 less from FutureShop!

Titanfall is the new hotness. It is, in my opinion, the first game worth buying an xBox One for. I haven’t played it yet but it looks really cool and from what other people are saying, it’s amazing. It has an 86% on MetaCritic. Now, I say it’s amazing but I think it’s amazing for some people. It seems that people who like it really, really like it and people who don’t like it absolutely despise everything about it. There is some middle ground but for the most part it’s a love or hate thing.

Regardless, I think it’s great and the way they made a story-driven online-only game is really interesting. I don’t really do any online gaming so I thought it was kind of dumb to have a banner game like this with no offline mode but the developers said in an interview that only about 5% of people ever finish the single player campaign so I guess it makes sense that they are doing an online only thing.

Right now you can get he xBox One version of Titanfall for only $49.99. That’s $10 off the normal $59.99 price tag. Shipping is free or you can reserve in store.

You can also get the deal at BestBuy.

Best Buy & Future Shop: Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch $99.99 (Save $100)

Best Buy Canada and Future Shop are selling the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch for $99.99 which is $100 off the regular price.

If you want this deal, get on it very very quickly as there is a limited quantity and they are selling out super fast. The black, ivory, and grey are already sold out but these sister stores still have several of the orange left in stock.

This smartwatch is amazing. It tracks your activity, takes photos, and syncs with your devices using Bluetooth 4.0. You can use it as a TV to stream content, as a compact GPS to find your way, and also as a watch. Fancy that. One reviewer said:

It makes life easier than taking out my phone each time, Also since the update the notifications are fabulous, add in the ability to control my music and answer/ decline phone calls, what else to I need. The camera is a welcome plus for capturing complex numbers and or reference items.

Future Shop Canada: Paderno ProGourmet Cookware Set Now $189.99

Posted by on March 14, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Future Shop Canada: Paderno ProGourmet Cookware Set Now $189.99

Future Shop Canada is selling the Paderno 12-Piece ProGourmet Cookware Set in Stainless Steel for $189.99 which they claim saves you $560 off the original price.

I use the word they ‘claim’ for a reason: because no one I could find actually sells it for the full ‘original’ price. I found a secondary seller on Amazon that was selling it for $370 but that is about as close as I got to that high of a price anymore for this set. The real price comparison is best with Costco.ca which currently sells the Paderno ProGourmet set for $239.99 which includes shipping and handling. Now, Future Shop’s price is better than Costco’s price by $50 so I believe this is a good deal.

The set includes:

  • 1.5L, 2L and 3L saucepans
  • 5L Dutch oven
  • 3L sauté pan
  • 24cm fry pan
  • 5 covers
  • 1 steamer insert

The set is suitable for all sources of heat including induction and it is dishwasher safe. The set is also backed by Paderno’s unusual 25 year warranty.

You will receive free shipping on this set because it costs over $20.

Future Shop: Philips Shoqbox Bluetooth Speaker $70 (Save $60)

Future Shop Canada has a really fantastic deal on the Philips Shoqbox Bluetooth Speaker With Wi-Fi (SB7220/37) – Green. Originally $129.99 it is now on sale for $69.99.

They are already sold out in the black version so green is your only choice. These speakers are pretty awesome for anyone who can be a bit hard on their electronics. The Shoqbox is splash-proof and drop-proof so you can take it with you on the go and not worry about breaking your precious speaker system. It is also very compact, uses bluetooth so you can stream your music wirelessly, has two built in speakers for a deep rich sound, and when you put two of these speaker systems side-by-side you can use them simultaneously.

This device also has a swipe sensor to skip songs, or if you place your hand over the sensor for a second you can make the music play or pause which is super cool. The battery is built-in and rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about bringing along fresh batteries. Just give it a good charge before you want to take it out to play.

As this speaker costs over $20, it will ship for free. Quantities are limited and selling really fast. Get yours soon.

Future Shop Canada: Save on iTunes Cards (In Store)

Future Shop is offering a couple really nice deals on iTunes cards and multi-packs. This is an in store deal only so might want to drop by Future Shop this weekend to save some dough.

There are three deals being offered this weekend. You can view the three deals online but you can only buy them in person.

First off, get the iTunes $60 Multipack Card for only $51. You save $9 on the pack. This is a four pack of $15 cards so they are great to split up and give as birthday gifts to your friends or thank you gifts.

Secondly, you can get the iTunes $50 Card for just $42.50. You save $7.50. This is only one card so you won’t be splitting this baby up. Makes a pretty nice gift for yourself or for a loved one. Lastly, you can also get this iTunes $100 Card for just $85. You save $15 on the deal. This is also a singular card and makes one impressive gift if you are looking to really spoil someone who buys a lot on iTunes.

The last time the $100 iTunes card went on sale my husband bought it for me and I have to say I was shocked and pretty darn excited. It is a wonderful gift to receive!

Future Shop Canada: Bodum Assam Tea Press Only $18 (Was $30)

Posted by on February 13, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Future Shop Canada: Bodum Assam Tea Press Only $18 (Was $30)

Today only, get the Bodum Assam tea press for only $17.99 at Future Shop, with a full price of $30. Also, get 30% off select kettles to boil the water for your tea.

I have the Bodum Assam tea press and if I could ask one kitchenware item to be my Valentine, it would be this one. I love it so much that I made a tea as soon as I saw this deal. It is good. Not just a pretty gift, this item is very useful. You have full control over the steep of your tea. Little did I know that you should stop the steeping after a certain time or the tea gets bitter. I would have thought the longer the better, but this is not so. So, you put in your tea, add your water and check the package of tea for how long the tea should steep. Once the time is up, you simply push the press down to stop the steep.

You can use loose leaf tea or tea bags and the really cool part is that you can recycle the tea and use it again. I did not know that! You can also share your tea with 2 or 3 other people or keep it all to yourself while you laugh a wicked laugh. That’s what I do.

If you don’t have a kettle and boil your water in a pot like I do, good for you. But if you are getting really sick of this like I am, check out the sale on electric kettles, now 30% off.

Shipping is free once you spend $20 so you might want to pony up another few dollars for something else to save your shipping costs.

Future Shop Canada: Sonax Queen Platform Bed $170 (Save $130)

Future Shop Canada has a great deal on the Sonax Queen Platform Bed Frame in black this weekend. Originally $299.99, the bed is now on sale for $169.99.

So this baby has a low profile design. You have a headboard and a footboard but they aren’t in your face. This is a platform frame so it can be used with or without a box spring. This gives you the option of not even buying a box spring which will save you money there. It fits standard queen size mattresses and has wooden slats for support. It is also black so will look good with pretty much any decor.

I did a little price comparing. I found a seller through Amazon Canada selling it for $322.99 and I found it at Staples for $269.94. Newegg.ca was $229.99 with $69.99 shipping (ouch) and even BestBuy was $189.99. So Future Shop comes out on top with the best price of them all.

Get free shipping on this elevated bed frame as it costs over $20. There are limited quantity available.

Future Shop & Best Buy Canada: Eddie Bauer Double-Up Stroller Now $99 (Save $130)

Posted by on February 3, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Future Shop & Best Buy Canada: Eddie Bauer Double Up Stroller Now $99 (Save $130)

Hurry because if you’re in need of a new stroller, you could save an incredible $130 on the Eddie Bauer double-up standard stroller and get it for just $99.99 (reg. $229.99) at either Future Shop or Best Buy Canada.

Already have a child and have a second one on the way? Then I suggest you take a moment to consider this super stroller since it can comfortably fit a child in the front and an infant car seat in the back. Plus, it even has storage space on the bottom, two covered cup holders and a canopy to protect from the rain.

Although it’s available at its full price at Sears.ca, here’s what one reviewer pointed out about this stroller:

I wanted to buy a double stroller where my newborn could be right in front of me and my older daughter could sit in the front and then would also still be able to be a sit and stand stroller as oppose to most where my newborn would be in the front.
This stroller was everything I wanted and I love it. It easier to steer then alot of double strollers. Also there is a sunshade that you can’t see in the picture but it is just under the cup/storage holder for you to connect to the carseat.
The only downside and it’s not such a down if you know what to do, is when you fold it up you need the pull the stroller toward you so the front wheels stay straight and fit into the stroller. Other then that I LOVE IT.

As always, since free shipping is available at both Future Shop and Best Buy on purchases over $20, this stroller will be shipped for free.

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: Cuisinart 5.5 Qrt Stand Mixer Now $250 (Save $250)

Best Buy and Future Shop Canada both have the Cuisinart 12-Speed 800 Watt Stand Mixer in white on sale for $249.99 (save $250). Quantities are limited on both websites so buy sooner rather than later.

If the stand mixer is sold out at one place then you might want to see if the other still has it in stock.

I price compared the mixer with The Bay Canada which also has it on sale from $429.99 down to $343.99. While the starting price is lower than Best Buy or Future Shop’s starting price, the sale price is still much higher than theirs as well.

The stand mixer includes a mixing paddle, chef’s whisk, dough hook, and splash-guard. The bowl has a 5.5 quart capacity and the twelve speeds are powered by a 800 watt motor. The Cuisinart stand mixer also features a countdown timer that will automatically shut-off your mixing for perfect results.

Enjoy free shipping on this stand mixer as it costs over $20.

Future Shop Canada: 50% Off TV Wall Mount – Now $50

Future Shop Canada: 50% Off TV Wall Mount   Now $50

This Rocketfish 32″ – 70″ Tilting Flat-Panel TV Wall Mount is on sale for $49.99, down from $99.99, at Future Shop Canada.

I tried to price compare but I just couldn’t find this wall mount anywhere but Best Buy which, of course, has it on sale for the same price (as they are sister companies). Other wall mounts for the same size TVs usually run upwards of $100 so I was pretty sure this was a good deal.

The mount supports pretty much the full gambit of flat screen TV sizes you might own or be interested in buying. It can handle up to 130 lbs. You may think that isn’t very much for a huge electronic device but it is very generous. I once weighed our Sony flat-screen 42″ TV and he came in at around 55lbs. You should have no problem with the larger TVs with this generous a weight allowance. Just make sure to anchor that baby to the wall really well.

Future Shop offers free shipping on orders of $20 or more so your TV mount will ship for free.
