The Body Shop Canada Promo Code: Buy 3, Get 3, 5 Free Samples & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

The Body Shop Canada Promo Code: Buy 3, Get 3, 5 Free Samples & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

The Body Shop has a really great coupon code and some hot deals out that will get you so many perks! First, buy three items and you’ll get not one, not two, but three free! You don’t need the coupon code for this one. Then, right now they have free shipping on orders over $50 to all of Canada, but free shipping to Ontario with no minimum purchase! Third, use the coupon code below to get five free skin care samples with your $75 purchase.

Click here to shop @ Thebodyshop.ca now

  • Coupon Code: TRYFIVE
  • Discount: 5 free samples
  • Expiry: 13th April 2015

I always love buy one, get one promotions, but this one gets you either buy two get one free or buy three and get three free. I like six products for the cost of three. I also like that I can spend what I want and get free shipping because I live in Ontario. But, spending $50 is not a hard task either, especially if you are doing the buy three, get three free. Not everything on the site is included, but many of the favourites you love from The Body Shop are.

Their new absinthe line sounds very intriguing and a little bit psychedelic. If you need a gift idea for someone, why not get them six products from the same line? They’ll love the large gift and won’t know you got it basically at 50% off. Because the lesser items will be discounted in your cart, you might want to keep your items to the same price. For example, you wouldn’t want to buy three of the purifying hand creams for $20 each and then just get three of the hand cleanse gels free, as that’s only saving you $12 total.

If you live in Ontario and you want to get a huge amount of stuff, you might be better to do separate orders to make the most out of your savings.

If you do plan on spending $75 and want your free samples, you’ll get:

  • aloe day cream sample
  • drops of youth mask sample
  • vitamin E day cream sample
  • tea tree oil sample
  • nutriganics drops of youth sample

I have to tell you, I tried the Drops of Youth mask and its pretty amazing. Typically, you’d use it at night, but I also put it on when I’m home all day. The texture is sort of like putty and feels really cool and fun to put on your face. It doesn’t tighten like some masks do and just feels ultimately like moisturizer. The size of the container is quite large, so this mask is going to last me a while too.

Normally, you’d have to spend $75 to get free shipping, or pay $5 on $50, so all of the deals here are very nice to combine.

Shoppers Drug Mart: Free $10 Chapters Indigo Card with $50 Purchase (in store)

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 6:32 PM

Shoppers Drug Mart: Free $10 Chapters Indigo Card with $50 Purchase (in store)

This weekend (starting tomorrow), Shoppers Drug Mart is giving away $10 Chapters Indigo Gift Cards when you spend $50 or more. The promotion runs the 11th April to the 12th of April – two days only.

The promotional card can be redeemed in Coles, Indigo, and Chapters locations or online. As there is an online option, I assume there is a promo code on the voucher itself. You need to use your $10 voucher by the 3rd of May 2015 so I hope you have a chapters purchase in mind already. I just received my Chapters order of three new books – I am quite pleased!

Quantities are limited, that is why I am blogging this deal a day early. This is the first time I have seen Shoppers Drug Mart team up with beloved Chapters – so I am pretty stoked about this deal. I plan to raid the leftover Easter chocolate, pick up some milk, and buy some Neo Citron as we seem to be taking turns getting sick in my household. Boxes are around $7 – $8, so two boxes will easily add around $15 towards that $50 minimum.

Now, most things you buy at Shoppers Drug Mart will act as part of the $50 minimum. However, there are a few exclusions:

Excludes prescription purchases, products with codeine, tobacco products (where applicable), stamps, passport photos, lottery tickets, event tickets, transit tickets and passes, gift cards, prepaid phone cards, prepaid card products and Shoppers Home Health Care locations

it appears that you can use this voucher at Chapters Indigo on almost anything you want. I would suggest raiding their sale section for some great deals. Of course, you always want to make sure your order is $25 or more so you will receive free shipping. i am not sure if that minimum is before or after coupon code. If you find out, then please let us know!

Hey Moosers, do you do a lot of your shopping at Shopper’s Drug Mart? If so, drop us a line to let us know what you usually buy from there. I would love to know what things are the best price at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Cineplex Canada: Free Ticket with Visa Checkout Ticket Purchase

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 5:07 PM

Cineplex Canada: Free Ticket with Visa Checkout Ticket Purchase

Cineplex Canada has teamed up with Visa to offer you a great deal. Purchase a movie ticket via Visa Checkout and you will receive a voucher for one free general admission ticket.

This is how it works my movie loving Moosers:

  • Pick a movie you wish to see and select the ticket(s)
  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option (and pay with Visa)
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button
  • Complete your purchase

After you have completed your movie ticket purchase, you will be emailed a voucher code valid towards a Free General Admission ticket. You can also use the code for a senior or child admission. There is a limit of one voucher code per transaction no matter the number of tickets you purchase.

These are unique codes and can only be used once – through this link right here. The coupon code cannot be used for midnight showings, Front Row Centre Events, or alternative programming (like the ballet or opera). The free General Admission promo codes will be sent out while quantities last. However, this promotion just started on the fourth so there should be plenty left. You have until the 3rd of August, 2015 to use the voucher.

The promo code with be on the last page of the PDF file that Cineplex sends you when you buy your ticket – do not delete it! If you need two tickets for a movie, then I suggest buying them one at a time. Buy one ticket first. Then use the unique promo code to buy your second ticket for the same movie. This is the best way to get Scene points anyway. If you buy your movie tickets this way, then this is essentially a BOGO free offer.

This offer is limited to once per person/account. Since we have two Visa cards in my household, I could take advantage of this offer and my partner could create his own account to get the deal as well. While we tend to go on Tuesdays, for the cheap movies, this offer could still save us several dollars.

Note: Rumour has it that when you upgrade the Free General Admission ticket, and pay the difference, that Cineplex generates a new voucher. I cannot confirm this as I have not bought any tickets yet, but this sounds like a sweet bonus. That would be one full price ticket, one ticket for the cost of the upgrade, and then another free General Admission ticket.

Hey Moosers, what movie are you going to buy tickets for? I am considering the new Fast & Furious movie… Furious 7.

Chapters Canada: Free Sunny Patch Umbrella with $25 Purchase ($10 Value)

Posted by on April 6, 2015 at 2:34 PM

Chapters Canada: Free Sunny Patch Umbrella with $25 Purchase ($10 Value)

Purchase $25 or more worth of Sunny Patch merchandise at Chapters Indigo Canada to receive a free Sunny Patch umbrella valued at $9.95.

Your order will also qualify for free shipping as the minimum required, $25, is also the minimum for free shipping.

Melissa & Doug make Sunny Patch toys. They are the cutest animal and flower themed toys that are perfect for your child’s backyard or front yard play. Let your child help you ‘mow the lawn’ with this Tootle Turtle Mower for $39.95. Receive a free umbrella with your purchase.

If course, the best deal is going to be when you just reach $25, so the $10 umbrella is worth a higher percentage of your order. This Happy Giddy Bowling Set is just perfect for that! The set includes six bowling pins and a bowling ball for little hands. I rather like the bowling pins in this set – they look like cute little aliens. The set costs $26.95 so the umbrella is free when you purchase just this set.

To receive your free umbrella, choose from one of the following designs and add it to your cart. There are two designs to choose from:

I think the Happy Giddy umbrella is the cutest thing ever. I also really like green. Add one of these umbrellas to your cart with a valid order to receive the umbrella free. Your cart should look something like this:

Chapters Canada: Free Sunny Patch Umbrella with $25 Purchase ($10 Value)

There are plenty other cute toys to purchase. I just chose toys that were already above the $25 minimum, but you can combine toys to reach that minimum. Add the Sunny Patch Firefly Pail (Indigo Exclusive) to your cart for just $11.95. Then, choose from a myriad of other toys like this Froggy Kickball for $13.95. Together, these two toys come to $25.90. That is enough for your free umbrella. The froggy kickball looks really cool and would certainly be fun to play with. However, it might be a bit hard to see in green grass! Then you can have a game of ‘find the kickball’.

I think this is a great deal because the minimum is only $25 for a $10 freebie. That is good value for your money overall.

Bath & Body Works: Free Item with $10 Purchase ($15 Value)

Posted by on April 2, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Bath & Body Works: Free Item with $10 Purchase ($15 Value)

Bath & Body Works has a smoking hot printable coupon code for you to use this long weekend. Purchase $10 worth of items and receive a free item worth up to $15 with this printable coupon.

Usually, Bath & Body Works may offer a 20% off coupon code or even a $10 off $30 code (33% off) but their free item coupons are pretty few and far between. This coupon is actually worth 67% if you buy exactly $10 worth of stuff and get an item that is worth $15. It easily gives you ‘50% off’ as finding a $10 item you want at Bath & Body Works is easy.

If you are placing a larger order, then I suggest using this $10 off $30 printable coupon that we have as well. The coupons cannot be combined so choose wisely or send your partner in with the other coupon, point out what you want – and process your purchases separately.

Summer is coming and I am looking forward to doing a little travelling. I am heading out to my parent’s place in May, which is approximately a 14-hour long drive plus a two hour long ferry ride. Essentially, I will be living in my car. Thankfully, Bath & Body Works has gorgeous Scentportable holders and refills for making my car smell all nice instead of smelling like sweat and stale Redbull. I love it when my car smells nice, so I need to pick up a Scentportable kit before I head out.

On the road, you are going to touch many things. Most of them will not be clean things. The nozzle at a gas station, the door handles on public washrooms, and even the bags of chips you fondle lovingly at the station are probably covered in germs. Travelling is stressful enough without a few billion extra germs. Pick up some of amazing hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works while you are shopping. I think Japanese Cherry Blossom sounds good but I would opt for Sugar Lemon Fizz instead.

These are both fantastic printable coupons valid for this ling weekend only. The $10 minimum is before tax, as is the $30 minimum for the other coupon.

Hudson’s Bay Canada: Free 19-Pc Gift Set ($250 Value) With $100 Beauty Purchase (+ Free Shipping)

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Hudsons Bay Canada: Free 19 Pc Gift Set ($250 Value) With $100 Beauty Purchase (+ Free Shipping)

Do you need to re-stock on beauty supplies? Then you need to take advantage of a very hot offer at Hudson’s Bay right now. During the next couple of days, you can get a free 19-pieces gift set filled with samples from top brands like Kiehl’s, L’Occitane, Origins, Elizabeth Ardene, Shiseido, YSL and others. Valued at $250, you need to spend at least $100 on beauty or fragrance products to get all of these awesome freebies.

Once you add over $100 worth of beauty items to your cart, then the 19-pc gift set will be automatically added to your shopping cart. It comes with all of the following items:

Hudsons Bay Canada: Free 19 Pc Gift Set ($250 Value) With $100 Beauty Purchase (+ Free Shipping)

All of these are definitely products worth trying and using, but I’m actually the most excited to try the YSL mascara volume effect faux cil. Even mascara samples can last a couple of uses, just don’t forget that no mascara should ever be used more than three months because of the accumulation of bacteria inside the bottle!

The reason I’m stoked to try it though is because the full-size version of this mascara actually goes for $36 and it has fab reviews like this one:

The best Mascara I’ve used thus far: I’ve used over 20+ types of Mascara including YSL Shocking…this is by far the VERY BEST mascara I’ve ever used.

There is no mention of it there or in the description on Hudson Bay’s site, but this gift set also comes with a snake skin print clutch. It’s actually quite cool looking; you can view it once you click on the first link above.

As Hudson’s Bay automatically ships the vast majority of orders over $99 for free, then you’re sure to get free shipping on your order as well.

What’s great is that you don’t even necessarily need to buy a ton of make-up or skincare products to get these freebies as chances are, the purchase of a single fragrance would most probably put you over the required $100 threshold. Versace’s Eros for women, for instance, is just $106 for a 50ml bottle.

Fruits & Passion Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Fruits & Passion Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Fruits and Passion has got some great stackable deals on this weekend that will have you wanting to freshen up your home with a new scent. First, they’ve lowered their free shipping threshold from $70 down to $25, which is pretty sweet in itself. Then, they have a coupon code for another 20% off that you can use on even clearance items. You’ll also score free samples on top of your order.

Click here to shop @ Fruits-passion.ca now

  • Coupon Code: SPRG20
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 29th March 2015

I’ve shopped at Fruits & Passion a few times as I love the smell of their products. They are definitely known for their Cucina soaps and I’ve seen them in the bathrooms of the ritziest places. I love that they smell like actual things in nature and not musky perfumey smells. For example, they have Rosemary and Cardamom or Sea Salt and Amalfi, which is definitely the one I’d pick! Obviously these fragrances are modeled on Italy, and the extra virgin olive oil that each soap consists of is sourced from the Mediterranean. They are also triclosan-free, not tested on animals and the collector’s editions come in recyclable glass jars. Plus the jars themselves are a show piece for your counter.  The non-collector’s edition of these soaps are $12.50 each. The collector’s edition jars are $22.50.

If you bought one of each, instead of paying $35, plus shipping, you’ll pay $28 and get free shipping right now. Plus you’ll get free samples:

Fruits & Passion Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

You could also fill your cart with some of the hot clearance items that Fruits & Passion has on, and still get 20% off. The Eau de Toilette fine fragrance was $45.50 and now on sale for $10. After coupon, you’ll get it for $8. A nice gift for a friend could be this decorative diffuser set, which was originally $18.50 and now $9.25. After coupon, it comes down to $7.40.

We’ve got a few other great coupons that you could use with your order if you prefer, like getting a free Cucina hand soap when you spend $45. Unfortunately, you can’t use it together with the 20% off, so you might want to see what floats your boat more. For example, on a $45 spend, you’ll get a $9 discount on your order. The soaps are $12.50, so getting that free is actually a better deal. But, that all depends on if you want the soap or the discount on your order.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Lowe’s Canada is giving away batteries with select tools and tool kits. Many of these bundles are also on sale so you already save money. You also receive a free battery valued at $55 up to $129.

Let us start with the cheapest kit you can buy to receive a free battery. The Bosch 18-Volt 1/2-in Cordless Drill with Soft Case is currently on sale from $139 down to $99. With it, you will receive a compatible battery. This battery is valued at $79.99! Overall, you are spending $99 for $219 worth of stuff between the drill kit and the battery.

There are two ways to receive your free battery. If you click ‘add the set’ on the main page above, then both the kit and the battery will be added to your cart. However, if you view product details and then add the tool to your kit, then you need to add the battery to your shopping cart as well.  Do you see the green bar below?

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Make sure you click the ‘Add’ button for the appropriate battery to be added to your cart for free. If you miss this step, then there will be no free battery in your order. After adding the battery on, your cart should look like this:

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

There we go! You can see the battery is now in your cart and will cost you nothing. Most of these tools and kits qualify for free parcel shipping (on orders of $49 or more), so shipping should be free across Canada.

The most expensive battery belongs to this large DEWALT DCK290L2 20-Volt MAX* Lithium Ion Hammerdrill / Impact Driver Combo Kit. The kit itself cost $369, but is now on sale for $319. This pack includes:

  • 1/2-in Hammer drill
  •  1/4-in Impact driver
  • Two (2) Li-ion battery packs
  • A Fast charger
  • A 360° Side handle
  • A Belt hook
  • A Contractor bag

While the kit comes with two batteries, you are going to be running two tools with them. It is always nice to have an extra one sitting on the charger, or already charged, to slip in when one battery dies. If you happen to need both the tools at the same time – then there is no time to leave one battery on the charger. Your free battery will be battery number three! One of these batteries retails for $129 so you save that plus $50 off the original kit.

Swarovski Canada: Free Crystallized Journal with $150 Purchase

Posted by on March 25, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Swarovski Canada: Free Crystallized Journal with $150 Purchase

Swarovski Canada never has sales, so we rely on free gift offers that come along once in a while. Currently, Swarovski Canada is offering a free Crystallized Fashion Journal when you place an order of $150 or more.

While Mother’s Day is not until May, you may want to start your shopping early. whether buying something for your mother or buying something for your wife who is a mother – jewellery tends to be a popular choice.

I like these Slake Deluxe bracelets. You can mix and match them by stacking one on top of another. Two bracelets would actually be quite substantial and look pretty good together. Each of the Slake Deluxe bracelets features beautiful Swarovski crystals on a leather wrap band. They also cost $79 each. I added two of these bracelets to my cart (both pink) and the journal was automatically added on.

Swarovski Canada: Free Crystallized Journal with $150 Purchase

The free gift is available in limited quantities. You will see it added to your cart if the promotion is still on when you make a purchase. As you are spending $150 or more, you will receive a few other benefits:

  • Free Shipping
  • Free Gift Bag
  • Free Greeting Card

The first benefit is automatic: all orders of $120 or more ship free. The free gift basket and the free greeting card you will select in your cart page. Just check the boxes that say, “I would like a free…” to receive these freebies as well. I think adding a greeting card and the gift bag makes receiving a piece of Swarovski even more special.

There are plenty of beautiful Swarovski items to buy your significant other. I like the idea of purchasing a set rather than one item and then the recipient having to complete the collection. This Backstage Round Set costs $169, thus it would qualify for the free crystallized journal. The set is available in two colours: gold and white. Some of the other sets are super small, whereas this set has a nice size to it for a good price.

The Cathy Set is a limited edition necklace and bracelet set. I think it is a good alternative to the Backstage Set if your significant other does not wear earrings or would just prefer a bracelet. The set retails for $160.

There is no need to add the free journal to your cart, it will be automatically added for you.

Microsoft Store: HP Stream 7 Was $119 | Now $99 + Free $25 Gift Card, Screen Protector & Tablet Case

Posted by on March 22, 2015 at 12:16 PM

Microsoft Store: HP Stream 7 Was $119 | Now $99 + Free $25 Gift Card, Screen Protector & Tablet Case

The Microsoft Store has one doozy of a deal, if you need a new tablet. The HP Stream 7 was $119 and is now only $99. On top of that, you will receive a free $25 gift card, a free screen protector, and a free case. Not only that, Office 365 Personal is included with the tablet. This tablet and all accessories will also receive free shipping.

If I did not just spend a fortune on shoes this last week, I would be buying this tablet. I seriously cannot think of a better deal on a brand name tablet right now.

Let is just consider this offer for a second in terms of savings.

VALUE:

  • Tablet – $119
  • Free Case – $30
  • Screen protector – $10
  • Gift Card – $25
  • Office 365 Personal – $69

This bundle has a total value of $253! When you pay only $99 for the entire thing, you are essentially saving $154 over what each item would normally cost if you had to pay for them individually. You can now see why this is such a hot deal.

Microsoft Store: HP Stream 7 Was $119 | Now $99 + Free $25 Gift Card, Screen Protector & Tablet Case

This tablet has a 7-inch (177.8-millimeter) HD touchscreen with an Intel Atom Z3735G processor. While there is only 1 GB of internal memory, you can easily expand that up to 32 GB with an external memory card. The HP tablets provide up to eight hours of battery life, and maybe longer, depending on what you use them for.

This reviewer sums up what many people think:

Best affordable tablet you can buy. This is much better than anything with android on it for the same price.. I cannot believe how much better these devices have become over the last two years.

While there may be a few dissenters, the overwhelming number of reviews are positive on Microsoft for a solid 4.1/5 star rating with over 300 reviews. In fact, 213 of those reviews are for a complete 5/5 star rating.

The odd commenter mentioned issues with the Wi-Fi, but others said that it must be their home Wi-Fi network having problems because this machine connects with no problem.

The reviewers also stressed having reasonable expectations. At this price, the tablet is not going to perform the same as a $600 tablet. You need to have reasonable expectations. What you do get is a good performing tablet with pretty good speed and a boatload of accessories for $100.

I am stoked about this deal and I hope you are too. If you buy one, please let me know!

Amazon Canada: $10 Back with Chromecast Purchase

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Amazon Canada: $10 Back with Chromecast Purchase

Amazon Canada is offering a $10 account credit when you purchase the Google Chromecast. To receive this offer you must purchase the Chromecast via Amazon. When you receive the device, your account will be credited with $10.

Currently, the Chromecast is priced at $39. During the holidays, we saw the Chromecast sell as low as $29: but the price since went up and has stayed at $39 for quite some time. With this promotion, it is just like buying the Chromecast for $29 again – just you get the $10 credit once you receive your device. There is a limit of one offer per person.

This device plugs into the HDMI and USB ports on your television. With it, your phone becomes your remote for endless entertainment. If you do not have the Chromecast yet, then you are sorely missing out.

I bought my partner one for his birthday and he loves it. He likes to watch music videos on the Chromecast while I like to watch anime shows like Black Butler, Chobits, and more. We mainly use the Chromecast with YouTube to stream videos wirelessly to our Sony HD TV. Both my iPhone and his Samsung Galaxy III can be connected to the Chromecast at the same time. I can add music videos to the queue at the same time he does. It is really a great little device – and incredibly inexpensive.

I talked so much about how I love the Chromecast that I convinced a friend of mine to buy it. Now, instead of watching videos off his computer, he can watch them off his television from the comfort of the couch. Needless to say, he is converted and loves the device as much as I do! My friend is also considering cancelling his cable as he is watching the Chromecast more than he watches regular TV now. Overall, it would be a lot cheaper for him to do so.

With the Google Chrome browser, you can stream content to the Chromecast as well. There are also other apps that communicate with the device including:

  • BBC iPlayer
  • BBC Sport
  • ABC iView
  • Netflix
  • GooglePlay
  • RedBull
  • Songza
  • Plex

While the list of compatible apps is still small, there is promise of expansion in the future.

If you missed picking up the Chromecast during the holiday sales, then now is your opportunity to get a good deal on it. Receive free shipping on the Chromecast as it costs over $25.

Trade Secrets: Kazen Touch Screen Flat Iron Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping Plus Free Gift

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

Trade Secrets: Kazen Touch Screen Flat Iron Was $160 | Now $90 & Free Shipping Plus Free Gift

Trade Secrets has got a fabulous deal on the Kazen touch screen flat iron right now. Regularly $159.95, they have it on sale for only $89.95. On top of this, you get free shipping, plus a free gift.

I remember shopping at Trade Secrets when they first opened thinking that it was a store only for beauty professionals. They had so much fun stuff! I like that they are mainstream now and anyone can shop there and get all the best beauty deals.

My hair straightener is getting on its last legs. A new one might be a good purchase while I can get a great deal on it. This flat iron has nano-technology and is made from tourmaline and ceramic to give you the straightest and least frizzy doo. It also purifies and protects your hair while styling, which is what you’ll need if you heat style on a regular basis.

This flat iron is super cool because it has a touchscreen that lets you choose the temperature you want to set the flat iron at. You can then lock it so you don’t accidentally press the buttons and make it hotter or cooler. It also shuts off after 60 minutes of inactivity for those of us who have a million distractions in the morning and might forget to turn it off.

This flat iron sells for quite a bit more than this sale price at all of the other stores I checked it out at in Canada. With a regular price of $213.99 at Keep Beautiful, it is on sale for Trade Secret’s regular price. Canada Beauty Supply sells it for $160 and so does Fabove.

This 5-star review was on Fabove:

My mom’s got REALLY curly thick hair, but it’s fairly short. She’s got TWO- one for the gym, and one she uses just every day because it’s small so she can get really close to the roots. Works great!

On top of getting free shipping, you’ll also get a free gift with this purchase. Because your purchase is over $55, you’ll get the It’s a 10 miracle styling serum worth $43.15.

Newegg Canada: Free 3 Games w/ Intel Processor Purchase ($50 Value)

Newegg Canada: Free 3 Games w/ Intel Processor Purchase ($50 Value)

Newegg Canada is giving away a World of Tanks – Enthusiast Promo Paper Voucher with any purchase of an Intel Core processor. The voucher entitles you to download three games free. Intel Core processors start at $149.99 and the free games voucher is worth $49.99.

Processors start at just $149.99 and it makes the most sense to purchase one of the lower priced processors to get the best value out of your freebie. However, if your computer needs more speed than a larger processor might be more advantageous.

With each Intel Core processor purchased, you will receive an Intel Gift – World of Tanks – Enthusiast Promo Paper Voucher. This voucher includes three free game downloads:

  • World of Tanks
  • Grid Autosport
  • Movie Edit Touch

Simply visit the website provided on the voucher and enter in the master key included on your paper voucher.

Going down to basics, the Intel® Core™ i3-4160 Haswell Dual-Core 3.6GHz LGA 1150 54W Desktop Processor Intel® HD Graphics 4400 is your base unit at only $149.99. In many ways, you will get what you pay for as an i3 processor is not the fastest horse out of the gate. However, for those who do not need speed (as a dedicated gaming computer does), this basic unit will do just fine. Enjoy a little Facebook, some Twitter, and the occasional game.

It is a short price step up to an i5 processor. I think it is worth the price as you are getting far better speed out of an i5 than an i3. The Intel® Core™ i5-4440 Haswell Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel® HD Graphics 4600 is the most cost effective i5 in the list at $224.99. I checked out reviews for the processor itself and found that it had a near perfect 5/5 egg rating with 30 reviews. One reviewer said:

Great processor for just about everything. From email to gaming this processor is a really good value and will handle most things you throw at it. Also, love how it stays cool and doesn’t consume a lot of power. It works just fine with the stock intel cooler, even when gaming.

I think shipping depends upon where you live, but it could just be a flat rate. I tried two different postal codes and they both came up as $8.40 for shipping (of the i5 processor bundle).

You cannot combine this deal with the $25 off $150 coupon mentioned previously.

Shoppers Drug Mart: $10 iTunes Voucher with $50 Spend (In-Store) (EXPIRED)

Shoppers Drug Mart: $10 iTunes Voucher with $50 Spend (In Store) (EXPIRED)

Shoppers Drug Mart has a really cool promotion in store this weekend that I wanted to highlight. Spend $50 or more in store and you will receive a promotional card for $10 worth to spend at iTunes. The promotion runs the 28th February to the 1st of March – two days only.

The promotional card will have a code on it that you must redeem right here by the 22nd of March 2015. When you redeem your promo card code, then you will be given a $10 iTunes e-voucher. This is a digital version of an iTunes card so you can redeem it at the iTunes store on whatever you like.

Quantities are limited, that is why I am blogging this deal a day early. Often when Shoppers Drug Mart gives away $10 cards, they have a $75 minimum (sometimes $50), and the gift card tends to be for Tim Hortons or some other consumable good. I like this deal because the minimum is reasonable and you receive 20% of the value of your purchase back in credit for iTunes.

In addition, while iTunes is a digital world, you still get something you can keep instead of just to consume. If you buy an album or a movie from iTunes, then you can enjoy it the rest of your life instead of just drinking the credit away. I buy a ton of music on iTunes (in fact, I have bought five songs and an album this week), so this is my kind of promotion.

It is easy to spend $50 at Shopper Drug mart. Often they are the cheapest place to buy milk (according to my partner), and with their combination of basic food necessities, chocolate, vitamins, and personal care it is easy to spend $50.

On iTunes, there are always great albums and more to spend credit on. I was just looking yesterday, and found some good deals.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack – $6.99
  • Frozen Soundtrack – $6.99
  • Dark Side of The Moon (Pink Floyd) – $7.99
  • Ghost Stories (ColdPlay) – $7.99

Dark Side of the Moon is a legendary Pink Floyd album that I am about to purchase. I have listened to Ghost stories by Coldplay. It is a solid album, but just not my type. Both the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Frozen soundtrack are quite popular right now and at a great price.
