Moto 360 Was $280 | Now $180 & Free Canadian Shipping @ Google Store

Moto 360 Was $280 | Now $180 & Free Canadian Shipping @ Google Store

Android users should check out this deal for wearable technology today, over at the Google Store. The Moto 360 was $279.99 but now is only $179.99!

I have to admit, I had no idea the Google Store was selling devices directly in Canada. I usually think about the Google Play Store, and the Google Store has slipped under my radar. To find out what electronics are available to us in Canada through the Google Store, check out this list here. Even better, right now there is an amazing discount for the Moto 360.

The Moto 360 is an ultimate, top of the line smartwatch. This watch has a scratch-free glass screen and a leather band. Use this as a command centre to preview your messages while your Android device stays in your pocket or bag. This device doubles as an activity tracker with a built in pedometer and heart rate monitor. Track your progress directly through Google Fit, and even connect to the Google Play Store to listen to stream tunes while you work out. This watch also connects to Google maps, and can double as a GPS device… from your watch! Seriously, my watch could give turn-by-turn directions? This watch is compatible with Android devices, but sadly is not yet cross-compatible with iOS devices.

Price Comparison

The only price I found that was anywhere close to the Google Store was over at Telus, they have the Moto 360 on sale for $199.99. At Best Buy Canada, this watch is on sale and has dropped to $249.99. Videotron is selling this watch for $279.95. You could also buy this directly from Bell.ca for $279.99. Amazon.ca has this watch for $279.99. This is an amazing price at the Google Store.

Reviews

Reviews overall are positive for this watch. I have looked at a couple other smartwatches, and this one by far has the happiest reviewers. Here is one review over at Best Buy that may just convince you it is time to buy this watch.

OK…I had some inaccurate perceptions of what a smartwatch can do…..no, it’s not a smartphone on your wrist! It’s your phones notification center and a limited controller of your phone… and it does this wonderfully! I like to exercise. With the Moto 360 if a message notification comes in I just flick my wrist… Plus it’s a beautiful comfortable watch I LOVE IT!

Shipping

Google Store is currently offering a free shipping promotion that means this item ships completely free. I was a little concerned about duty costs, as I could not find it stated directly on Google’s website. What they did say is that orders ship via UPS, Purolator or Canada Post according to the Find Your Country’s Estimated Delivery Time drop-down menu further down the page. From reading various Canadian customer accounts around the web, you should not be charged any customs fees at your door. Other buyers have reported that Google absorbs those costs and that there are not duty fees at the door. There is still a chance duty fees could be presented, but I would say your chances are low overall.

I have never ordered from the Google Store directly, but this highly sought after smartwatch is very tempting. Google is generally very on top of things. Even their checkout feels clean without a fuss. This is the lowest price I have seen for this awesome watch yet. My husband would be thrilled to receive this as a Father’s Day gift.

Bargainmoosers, can any of you comment as to how your transaction with the Google Store went?

Google Photos: Free Unlimited Storage!

Posted by on May 29, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Google Photos: Free Unlimited Storage!

Google are taking over the world, one app at a time! This time, they’ve just launched a service called Google Photos (mentioned here on their blog), with which you can store unlimited amounts of your videos and images, of a sizing up to 16MP or 1080p. The app is free to download and use, or you can just use it online from your computer too.

There are many people out there who use various online services to store photos, from Onedrive to Flickr. When you want unlimited storage with these types of sites, you usually have to pay an ongoing subscription fee to enable to keep accessing the services. With the likes of this free service from Google Photos, you could consider using this to store all your photos instead of other paid services.

Just note that it won’t be your own original high-quality file that is stored on the Google services. They likely compress it a little for storage purposes. So in my opinion, I think the Google Photos service is good for backups – not really as a premier source of storing all your images and videos.

There’s also a very interesting feature – you can search your photos for certain things, without even tagging them. For example, in the image above… if you search your piccies for dog, Google Photos will show you the dog piccies. Smart!

When we see “free” deals like this, sometimes the paranoia kicks in. Obviously you’re giving all your personal photos and videos to Google, and kind of trading in your privacy for this free service. This may be an ethical and moral question you want to consider before signing up. Google Photos: Free Unlimited Storage!

Here’s a video to show you what the Google Photos service does. ^^^

Google: Free 60-Day Trial of Google Cloud Platform

Posted by on March 22, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Google: Free 60 Day Trial of Google Cloud Platform

Google is offering $300 in free credit for the Google Cloud Platform for you to play with over 60 days. There is no obligation, and you will never be charged unless you decide to upgrade to a paid account. This is a risk free, 60-day trial of Google Cloud Platform my lovelies!

The Cloud Platform service is for someone far more tech savvy than I am. First, what IS Google Cloud Platform? Well, it is a cloud computing platform, by Google, that allows you to create websites, applications, and more. From the simple to the complex – you can make it via the Google Cloud Platform. The platform gives you access to:

  • Virtual machines
  • data solutions
  • SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Object storage
  • Application services

… and more.

Your free 60-day trial includes $300 in credit to spend on all Cloud Platform products (with some limitations). According to the fine print, “Compute Engine is limited to eight concurrent cores at a time.” I hope that means something to you as I am pulling a blank here.

Now, when the free trial ends – everything is paused for 30-days. In that month period, you can decide whether you wish to upgrade to a full (paid account). If you choose not to upgrade to a paid account, all of your instances will be lost.

The free trial is for anyone new to Google Cloud Platform. Existing customers are excluded. If you are an existing customer and want the free trial, I suggest using a different email address and maybe your partner’s name when you sign up. Alternatively, get a friend to sign up for you and just use the account.

Now, you may be wondering about that $300 of credit. Well, you only cut into your $300 credit when you exceed the App Engine free quota per app per day. I have linked directly to the pricing sheet so you can see how much $300 worth of credit will cover.

I like this deal because it is risk free. If you are a website developer or a tech savvy kid with mad computer skills – this is a cool little playground to try out new ideas and new software. There is no fee and with $300 credit, you really get to have some fun.

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

Posted by on January 31, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

I am sure we’ve all heard of Google Earth, the website/program that lets you view anywhere on Earth via satellite imagery and maps, everything from the grand canyon to the Pyramids of Giza. The basic app has always been free, but there’s a “pro” version which usually costs $399. Google have just released a blog post stating that they’re now giving away access to Google Earth Pro for free!

The above blog post is from Google and it details how to get a free key to activate your Google Earth Pro license. You should be able to grab a free key, download the program and start using it, at no charge. I’ve just done it and it only took a few minutes to download and set up. Once they emailed me the account details, here was the initial setup with the free license key:

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

As far as I can tell, it’s an ongoing license and doesn’t expire.

In the image at the top of this post, I’ve taken a screenshot of Niagara Falls from the Google Earth app. If you look closely, you can see a lot of little dots – these are all links to photos that various people have taken there. I thought this was a pretty cool feature! Of course if you install this program, the first thing you’ll want to do is look up your own house. Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

As to the features that Google Earth Pro has compared to the free version which anyone can get, check out this table:

Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

So we can see that you can get various extra features such as premium high resolution images, automatic geolocation and super image overlays! One feature – map multiple points at once – you could use this if you’re planning a journey or a walking route. I’ve heard it said that it could be useful for hikers. Many of these features aren’t going to mean a lot to the average user… but a freebie is a freebie. Google Earth Pro Free ($399 Value!)

TinyDeal: DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses for iPhone Samsung Cellphones (Presell) Only $3.66 (Expired)

If you’re looking for an exceptionally affordable virtual reality experience, this is it. At this time, TinyDeal is offering up some intriguing DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses, which are compatible with a myriad of smartphones. They normally cost $11.11, but you can now get them for just $3.66! As an added bonus, you’ll also get free shipping! This is a presell (the first batch of these units sold out quickly), so they won’t be shipped until October 6. Since this item is coming from China, it may take a while for it to arrive (according to TinyDeal’s website, it should take between 7-25 business days), but remember Bargainmoosers – it’s still free!

Oculus Rift, eat your heart out! These DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses just take a few minutes to assemble. Once it’s put together, just slide in your cell phone, and enjoy! You can see how it works by clicking here. It’s compatible with smartphones that have 4 – 5 inch screens, such as the iPhone, Google Nexus 4/5/6, Samsung phones, HTC One, Xiaomi Mi3, and many others.

TinyDeal is fairly new to Bargainmoose. Even though they’re based in China, they offer free worldwide shipping to customers for packages that are under 2 kg. So far, we’ve seen some very interesting deals from this company! If you’re uneasy about dealing with a company that takes longer than average to ship your order, then I recommend that you use Paypal when dealing with them.

I’m very intrigued by this item! It took me back to a time when I tried to make my own “virtual reality” system out of a cardboard milk carton and pictures. It should come as no surprise that my experiment failed miserably. However, this product is very affordable, and it looks like it’s getting a fair amount of attention!

This interesting gadget currently retails for $7.64 US at Aliexpress and $9.99 US at Tabletland. If you check out the reviews for these DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses, you’ll see that they have received universal praise from those that have used them. I’ve included a brief review from a satisfied TinyDeal customer below:

Such a cool idea. It’s so easy to put together and, for the price point, it provides more value than could reasonably be expected. Thanks for helping me to introduce so many people to VR so easily!

If you want to try out a cool gadget that seems to be selling out quickly, then pick up these DIY Google Cardboard Cellphone Virtual Reality 3D Glasses! I hope you all enjoy your day, Bargainmoosers!

Walmart Canada: Hipstreet FLARE 2 9” Google Certified Dual Core Android 8GB Tablet Only $88.94!

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Walmart Canada:  Hipstreet FLARE 2 9” Google Certified Dual Core Android 8GB Tablet Only $88.94!

Hot deal alert!  I love me a good Walmart Canada Rollback, and I found a sweetheart of a deal in there today.  The Hipstreet FLARE 2 9” Google Certified Dual Core Android 8GB Tablet Only $88.94 (reg. $118)!

Click here to shop @ Walmart Canada now

I have been in the market for a tablet for a while now and I have yet to commit.  My soon-to-be-7-year-old has been quite literally begging for a tablet for about a year now and I’ve been putting it off for a few reasons:  I’m concerned about too much screen time, I don’t want to spend a lot but also don’t want to buy a piece of junk, and I worry about a tablet being destroyed by my younger son.  With all of that in mind I have been researching tablets quite a lot and really like the looks of the Hipstreet FLARE 2.  Here are the basic product specifications:

  • 9-inch LCD screen
  • Dual Core 1.5Hz A9 Processor
  • Android 4.1 (Jellybean) operating system
  • 8GB internal memory
  • Supports microSD cards up to a capacity of 32GB

This device is Google certified, which means that you have access to the Google Play store for apps, Google Maps, and other Google apps exclusive to certified devices.  This tablet also comes loaded with Hipstreet apps and services.  The High Speed Micro USB 2.0 port allows you to connect the Hipstreet FLARE 2 to a keyboard, mouse, external storage device, etc and the Dual Graphics Processor with HDMI Out port allows you to connect to any HDTV or flat screen monitor.  Talk about versatility!

Based on the specifications and the price, I feel like the Hipstreet FLARE 2 is a great starter tablet for kids.  We’re not talking about mass amounts of storage for vital information here, she just wants to play some games, take photos and communicate with her friends.  It also has front and rear-facing cameras for all the selfies I’m sure to see in her future.

Price comparison

I did some price comparison shopping and was pleased to find that this deal is really great compared to TheSource.ca who are selling this tablet for $159.99 and BestBuy.com at $139.99.  Walmart Canada has the Hipstreet FLARE 2 rolled back from $118 to $88.94.

Shipping

As if this deal wasn’t sweet enough, Walmart Canada still offers free shipping on all orders with no minimum!

Google: Chromecast – Stream Websites, Netflix and More from your Android or iOS to your TV for only $39!

Posted by on April 1, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Google: Chromecast   Stream Websites, Netflix and More from your Android or iOS to your TV for only $39!

Chromecast has come to save you from terrible interfaces and expensive equipment. Stream with ease for only $39!

Chromecast! I’ve been wanting a Chromecast for a long time but they were only available in the U.S. I was going to get one when I went to the states in December but I didn’t end up going. Then I was going to get one when I went to the states last month but they went and released it in Canada. So now I can buy them by the bucket load and have them delivered right to me!

Right, so what is a Chromecast, why do you want one and why is it on a deals site? A Chromecast is a little stick you plug in to the HDMI port on your HDTV or computer monitor. From there you can stream stuff from your Android phone to your TV. Simple as that. Plug the stick in, open up a Chromecast enabled app on your Android phone, hit the Chromecast button in the app and it pops up on your TV. It had been just the Google Chrome browser, YouTube and Netflix that you could be Chromecasted but Google recently opened up the API so tons of apps are becoming Chromecast enabled. There are even a bunch of music streaming services opening it up so you can play music fro your favourite service through your TV sound system.

That all sounds good but why do you, the consumer, want this? Partially for ease of use and partially for the price. We’ll get to price later so let’s talk ease of use. I don’t know how you watch Netflix now but if it’s on your TV, there is a chance that the experience sucks. if you are using a smart TV with a Netflix or YouTube app, for example, I can almost promise that it stinks. Smart TV apps are almost universally clunky, slow and outdated. A lot of Android apps are the opposite of that. They are intuitive and kept up to date. Chromecast let’s you use the touchscreen interface of your Android phone or tablet to control what’s on your TV.

And there is price. Chromecast is only $39. That’s right. $39. Compare that to almost any streaming box like a Roku, Boxee, Apple TV or WD Live TV and it’s going to be cheaper by at least $60. That’s why it’s on this site. Even when it’s not on sale, it’s over 50% cheaper than anyone else. And while another box might have Netflix and YouTube and maybe a few other apps, the Chromecast supports any app that enables it. Making your app Chromecast enabled is supposed to be super easy to just about every video or audio app out there is enabling it. If your favourite app isn’t Chromecast enabled, drop the developer an email and make sure they get on it!

If you want to stream stuff from the internet of your personal media library to your TV Chromecast is, without doubt, the way to go.

Shipping is free

To use this coupon, download and install GoLauncher Ex for free at the link above, go to Menu>Properties>About Go Launcher Ex> enter the code. That will get you GoLauncher Prime for free!

One of the most touted features of Android is the ability to customize it. You can customize it on the simplest levels, like choosing where you put your app icons and widgets all the way up to coding your own custom fork. Most people hit their limit at a new launcher. The launcher is basically what you see when you look at your Android phone. Your home screen, your app drawer, that is all based on the launcher. One of the more popular launchers is GoLauncher Ex. How popular is it? How about over 100,000,000 downloads? It’s literally one of the most popular apps, period.

It is free and it works fantastically. You can get other GoLauncher themes to customize even more. You want everything to be pink, get a pink GoLauncher theme. It’s as easy as that. The best part about this is that GoLauncher Ex is completely free. Of course, you don’t get 100,000,000 downloads of something and not figure out how make money. GoLauncher makes money in part from people buying GoLauncher Prime. This is what you get for free with this coupon.

GoLauncher Prime is normally $6. It gets rid of GoLauncher ads, give you app lock, gestures and some cool new compwiz-like (for the Linux geeks out there) transitions.

Crazy Egg: Free 30 Day Trial – Visualize Where People Go On Your Website

Crazy Egg: Free 30 Day Trial   Visualize Where People Go On Your Website

Do you run a website? Ever wonder what parts of it people like, what they click and what they read? CrazyEgg tells you and for 30 days, they tell you for free.

If you want to know exactly what CrazyEgg does, check out the video on their home page, which explains it all. Basically, it is a way to see which parts of your website people like and which parts they don’t. Things like Google Analytics and the awesome SumAll are great resources, but they don’t do it all. CrazyEgg is the missing piece.

After the 30 day free trial, the service is only $9/month for smaller sites and up to $99/month for bigger sites. If you’re running a mega site like Costco, Disney, eBay or Amazon (all of whom are CrazyEgg users) you can get a custom price plan. It seems quite easy to set up, too. If you’ve added Google Analytics to your site, you’re probably going to be able to do this. If you don’t happen to dig it and your conversions don’t go up, you get your money back.

The tablet is regularly $229. On the website, they are currently promoting a coupon code that gives you $80 off. That coupon code is fine, but our Kung Fu is better. You get $100 off, so it is only $129! That’s right, $129, full stop.

Now, I’m not saying that this is the best tablet out there, but at that price I’d certainly take a small hit in performance. It’ll still run most apps fine, and you can still use it for email, internet, Facebook, video, Youtube and all those other things you do on a tablet. It might chug a bit if you’re trying to run a high end 3D game on it or something, though.

On top of all that, you get free shipping! Check out more free shipping deals from Bargainmoose. Another good reason to visit the forums: more Lenovo coupons!

Amazon Canada: 50% Off 2nd OUYA Controller When You Buy The Console

Posted by on October 17, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 50% Off 2nd OUYA Controller When You Buy The Console

I feel like there should be a Macho Man Randy Savage but too soon, too soon. Instead, I’ll just tell you that you can get 50% off an OUYA controller when you buy the console.

When you go to buy the console, just add the controller to your cart and the discount will be applied at checkout. The controller is normally $49.99, but you’ll get it for $24.99. All in all, you will only pay $124.98 for the console and two controllers. That’s a great deal.

If my wife hadn’t specifically asked me to get her a new camera and gift cards for clothes this Christmas, I think I’d get her this. She isn’t a gamer other than an occasional bout of Sims 3 addiction and casual games on her Android phone. The OUYA is all about bringing casual Android games to your TV. There are almost 500 Android games that have been optimized for the OUYA, and more are always coming on board.

At $99.99 for a console and, with this deal, $24.99 for a controller, this is a great alternative gaming console. The PS4 and xBox One are expensive. If you don’t want to drop that kind of money on a console, the OUYA is a great choice. It’s also perfect for people who only do phone gaming. Casual gaming is a huge segment of the gaming world, and the OUYA caters to the people who are in that segment perfectly.

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want To Support Charity & Get Awesome Games On PC, Mac, Linux or Android

Posted by on October 16, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Humble Bundle: Pay What You Want To Support Charity & Get Awesome Games On PC, Mac, Linux or Android

Help charity and get sweet games for PC, Mac, Linux and Android with the Humble Bundle!

The Humble Bundle is one of the greatest things on the internet. There is a lot of junk on the internet. Bad people, scams, crappy products and selfishness are among the piles of steaming crap on the web. The Humble Bundle is the opposite of those four things. The people who put out the Humble Bundle are really good, unselfish people. They offer you awesome products at great prices and – get this – allow you to choose how much you pay and where your money goes. This is how it works; Let’s say you decide to pay $5 for the games. You can decide what percentage you want to go to whom. If you wanted to put 10% to the Humble Bundle people, 50% to one of the charities and 40% split evenly among the game developers, you can do that. Maybe you want to put 25% to one charity, 25% to the other charity, 5% to each of the six game developers and 20% to the Humble Bundle people. You can split it any way you want.

The two charities are Child’s Play, an organization that gives video games to children’s wards in hospitals, and the EFF. The six video games are as follows:

  • Ticket to Ride + Soundtrack
  • Greed Corp + Soundtrack
  • Incredipede
  • Anodyne + Two Soundtracks

And the bonus games (more about that in a bit) are:

  • Worms Reloaded + Soundtrack
  • The Bard’s Tale + Soundtrack

The way the bonus games thing works is that you pay whatever you want for the four main games but can get the two bonus games if you pay more than the average donation. The average donation as of this writing is $6.20. You can get all six games and soundtracks for less than $7! If you don’t think that this is a good deal, Ticket to Ride (which I hear is amazing) is about $7 alone, in the Google Play store.

Amazon Canada: Get a $25 OUYA Card When You Buy an OUYA Console

Amazon Canada: Get a $25 OUYA Card When You Buy an OUYA Console

OUYA Baby! $25 OUYA Card when you get your OUYA from Amazon Canada!

The OUYA is an awesome console. Basically it’s an Android gaming console that hooks up to your TV. The games on it are some of your Android (and iOS and computer and console) favourites like Sonic CDSHADOWGUN and Sine Mora. The most annoying part about getting a new console is getting games. I’m getting a $400 PS4 in a few weeks here and after that I still need to drop at least $70 on a new game. And the console is brand new so there is going to be no used game potential on that.

But Amazon and OUYA are making it really easy to stock up. You get a $25 OUYA card so you can load up on some great games like I mentioned above or one of the almost 500 games that have already been optimized for OUYA so far. A lot of OUYA games are totally free too, but many have in-game purchases, which you can also use your OUYA card for.

The deal page from Amazon is a bit weird. You need to add the OUYA and the card to your card and the $25 will be taken off at checkout. Shipping is, of course, free.

Google Play Canada Store: Get 50%+ Off 7 Great Android Indy Games

Posted by on August 31, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Google Play Canada Store: Get 50%+ Off 7 Great Android Indy Games

The internet is the great equalizer between independent games and the big guys. Level the playing field a bit more by supporting the little guys by getting 50% or more off with the Google Play Store!

The internet is seriously the great equalizer between the big companies and the little game makers. It used to be that if you wanted to sell a game, you needed to have it distributed in stores and that pretty much only happened for big companies. There were some independent developers out there like the amazing crew at Pendulo Studios, but they were usually stuck behind something else. Nowadays, with the internet, the playing field is a little more even. Yeah, most companies are still gonna put the big name games up front, but it’s easier to find those weird, independent games that we all fall in love with at one point in our gaming lives.

If there is anything that can rival what the internet has done it’s smartphones and tablets and, if I were going to get political for a moment, Android. Anyone can put anything on Android (as long as it isn’t malware) and sell it or give it away. A few of those small game makers rise above the rest and, in this instance, get featured in a sale on the Google Play Store. These are the games:

I don’t know the before prices but they are all at least 50% off. Also, the prices are converted to CAD from USD. If the exchange rate changes a lot, the prices might change in kind.

I immediately picked up Combo Crew based solely on the fact that they have Viewtiful Joe (!!) in the logo. If Capcom thinks this game is good enough to let Viewtiful Joe in it, I’m down. Combo Crew is 50% off. The other one I grabbed is The Room, which is already a huge success and is a really cool looking puzzle game. It just recently (yesterday or the day before) got an expansion to add another puzzle to the game. This one, I think, was a $4 game at one point, so you could be saving up to 75% if that price is correct and if it stayed there.

Once you’ve picked up some of these awesome games, take a look around the Play store and find some other independent games. Let us know what your favourite indy game is so we can all check them out and support the small developers making awesome games.

Sony Canada: Refurbished Google TV Player – $150 (Save $50)

Posted by on August 25, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Sony Canada: Refurbished Google TV Player   $150 (Save $50)

Sony Canada is selling refurbished Google TV Players for $50 off the regular (new) price. If you have wanted one of these devices for a while, then the $149.99 price tag is certainly going to pique your interest (originally $199.99).

I can’t find anywhere that specifically says this comes with the full warranty, but I did find that it comes with the warranty card which is just like the original, thus I assume it does. You save 25% off the non-refurbished price, which is great savings when you are talking about a $200 piece of equipment.

The Google TV Player gives you access to streaming content, made-for-TV apps, and Google Chrome all on your TV. You can use it for Netflix, to access the Sony Entertainment Network, and much much more. Here is what one buyer had to say:

I am very happy with my purchase. as an avid movie watcher, the ease of use and the comfortable, efficient remote has really made using Netflix a dream. I wouldn’t even say it’s a con, more like where it could go in the future, would be nice to customize the home screen a bit more, be able to set up your desktop how you like it. A great buy !

Sony Store also offers free shipping on all orders, so this device will ship to you for free.
