Costco Canada: $35 Off Garmin Nuvi GPS – Now $145

Posted by on February 22, 2015 at 9:30 PM

Costco Canada: $35 Off Garmin Nuvi GPS   Now $145

Need a GPS? The Garmin Nuvi 56LMT $35 off at Costco right now. Instead of its usual price of $179.99, you can get it for just $144.99 (+ $2.75 eco fee). Shipping is also free.

Do you get lost a lot? A friend of mine does all the time and for whenever she finally gets her license, I will more than likely get her a GPS and certainly a Garmin one, which is an extremely well-known brand for its accuracy and performance.

Personally, I always use my iPhone as a GPS but given that the use of a cell phone is actually illegal in my province, I would much rather be using an actual GPS device. I’m sure a couple of you Moosers may have a special stand for your phones, which is great, but I’m not a fan of it leaching my data, especially when I don’t have a lot of data to begin with on a monthly basis!

This GPS boasts a 5″ screen, a 480 x 272 resolution and comes pre-loaded with maps for both Canada and the U.S. It also has a battery life of up to two hours, along with a speed limit indicator, a lane assist and most importantly, lifetime map updates, which means that you won’t have to worry about shelling out more money for these.

In terms of a price comparison, the Garmin Nuvi 56LMT GPS is currently being sold for $199.99 at Staples. I also found it for $140 at but unfortunately, it does ship to Canada.

Speaking of which, although there are no reviews for this GPS on either Costco’s or Staples’ sites, on, there are 155 reviews with a total of 4/5 stars — that’s pretty awesome if you ask me! Here’s one such review:

One of the most intuitive GPS I’ve ever used. Accurate positioning. Highly responsive processor for upcoming turns. Voice directions clear and unrobotic. Free lifetime map updates so you don’t get constantly gouged by Garmin. Highly functional trip computer. Appreciated position coordinates and terrain elevation.

And here’s something worth noting:

On the negative side the manual that comes with it is pretty useless. You really have to go to the Garmin site and download the manual. That one is fairly good, but I have still had to figure out several things by trial and error. For example it doesn’t explain how turning on and off power works very well. But it turns out that if it is powered from an outlet that turns off with the ignition, it turns on and off with the ignition, so you never have to touch the power button if it is just used in the car.

The Source Canada: $50 Off Garmin Nuvi 66LM GPS – Now $140 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 1, 2015 at 12:00 PM

The Source Canada: $50 Off Garmin Nuvi 66LM GPS   Now $140 & Free ShippingDon’t get lost ever again with the Garmin Nuvi 66LM GPS. Originally priced at $189.99, it’s now on sale for $139.99 at The Source.

With a 6″ LCD screen, the Garmin Nuvi 66LM GPS is super easy to use and comes with maps of Canada, the US along with a lifetime supply of maps. The last part means that you can update your device  up to 4 times per year at no extra charge. Plenty of other GPS devices have a tendency to stop working after a couple of years but you can rest assured that this one won’t.

In terms of a price comparison, both Future Shop and Best Buy have this same GPS for $189.99. Although The Source’s site doesn’t boast any reviews, here’s what one reviewer had to say about it at Future Shop:

I like Garmin. I had Lifetime Maps on my last Garmin and they still pumped out updates for that model after almost 8 years. I respect that. My Dad got a different brand and map updates were cancelled on his model after a few years. My older Garmin did have a password option, this one doesn’t. Also worth mentioning that there is no “split screen” view as is shown in all the advertising pictures… the image on the right does not seem to be an actual option… just an artistic rendering.

The lack of a split screen that the reviewer mentions is actually a downside that many other reviewers have echoed as well but it’s not really a negative point per se as this isn’t a feature that would usually be available on a GPS anyways. The reviewer goes on to praise the touch keyboard for its ease of use, especially for anyone who travels a lot for work.

Although it’s not available at Canadian Tire anymore, I found 18 reviews on their site with a general consensus of 4.6/5 stars. That’s definitely pretty amazing, especially with comments like this one:

After going through the other top brands, I have finally settled on Garmin. Easy to use, great accuracy, and free updates makes this unit a top buy that won’t get you lost.

Usually, a flat $4.99 shipping rate applies to every order but make sure to enter the Source coupon code TS4411 at checkout to get free shipping. If you prefer, you can also choose to have your order shipped to your local The Source store for a free pick-up as well.

(BUMP – further $10 price drop for Cyber Monday!) Oh hey there, Bargainmoosers! The Source is having a sweet deal on their refurbished Magellan Roadmate 2230T-LM GPS today. This GPS usually sells for $149.99 at most places, but you can now buy this for just $49.99 just $39.99! You`ll also qualify for free shipping!

This is a clearance sale, so click on the link below before it’s too late!

This refurbished Magellan Roadmate 2230T-LM GPS has plenty of features, and it can help you get to your destination without any issues! I have a GPS, and I’m very glad that I’ve had one for many years! Without it, I likely would have gotten very lost on some occasions (especially when I had to venture into towns and cities that I never visited before).

It can be a real challenge to buy gifts for certain people, whether it’s your uncle that seems to only like lottery tickets as a present, or that in-law that doesn’t seem to have many hobbies. Well, this Magellan Roadmate 2230T-LM GPS could be a great gift for those that seem to be tough to buy for. After all, it’s a GPS – it can help out anyone that drives a vehicle!

I’ve listed a snippet of a review of this Magellan Roadmate 2230T-LM GPS from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

Good value for the price, as it includes both free lifetime map updates and free lifetime traffic analysis.

This is a clearance sale, so this GPS likely won’t be available for very long. These refurbished GPS items usually sell out quickly at The Source, so get it now! Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Costco Canada: Garmin GPS Only $140

Costco Canada: Garmin GPS Only $140

Costco has a fantastic deal on the Garmin nuvi 3490LMT GPS with lifetime maps. It is selling for $139.99 and sells for quite a bit more on other sites like Amazon, where it sells for $223, Tiger Direct, where it sells for $155 and ebay where it sells for $140 U.S. plus $40 shipping. As always, you’ll get this shipped free from Costco too.

While GPS systems can really be the bane of my existence, a good one can really be a lifesaver. This one seems have all the bells and whistles you need to get yourself in good time from point A to point B. These features include lane assist (because I hate being in the wrong lane when it is time to turn or merge), pedestrian navigation options, hands-free calling and ecoRoute, which calculates the most fuel-effiecient route.

This GPS machine also has an ultra-thin design, so you don’t mind adding it to your bag of technology instead of leaving it in your vehicle for potential thieves to take advantage.

There are so many features that this GPS has, I’ll let you read them yourself instead of listing them here. I will say the majority of the reviews are fantastic, and people like the lightweight design and that it responds quickly and accurately.

Best Buy Canada: TomTom 5″ GPS Only $119.99 (Expired)

Posted by on January 2, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: TomTom 5 GPS Only $119.99 (Expired)

Best Buy is having a two-day sale with a number of items on sale. One that particularly stood out to me was the TomTom 5″ GPS with lifetime map updates for only $119.99, was $199.99. Checking out other stores for their prices on this item, I found it at Staples for $169.95 and Factory Direct for $129.95, so this is the best deal.

As an added bonus, when you buy any GPS system, you’ll get this Roots Hard Shell carrying case for 5″ GPS systems for only $11.99 (valued at $24.99). Just add it to your cart along with your GPS.

Since I have a smartphone, I sometimes feel like I don’t need a separate GPS system. That is until the one on my phone decides to crap out on me at the worst time. It is also not very useful when I’m on the phone (speaker of course), or when the battery is dying because I find the GPS on my phone eats my battery like cookie monster eats cookies.

This one is really cool too, packed with features you never knew you needed until you had them and can’t live without them. It incorporates the swipe feature to move from screen to screen or zoom in on the sharp graphics or intuitive menus. They have lifetime map updates so you’ll never get lost in your friend’s brand new subdivision.

You know how some GPS systems take you on a wild goose chase down dirt roads and the wrong way down a one-way street? This GPS system uses IQ Routes to take you the smartest and fastest way. You also have lifetime traffic updates so you’ll miss out on sitting on the highway for hours behind that stalled car blocking four lanes. I know you’ll be sad missing out on that fun. You’ll also be able to talk to your GPS when you are lonely and tell it exactly where to go (or where you want to go, it is your choice). Pair it with your phone to see your incoming call information, although I always suggest pulling over for this, and you can even talk hands-free through the device.

Another thing that bugs me about some GPS systems is that you can’t always tell where you are supposed to turn. It says 250 metres, but I have really poor spatial awareness and always turn too soon. This systems has Advanced Lane Guidance to show you exactly what road to take.

Shipping will be free since your purchase is over $20.

The Source Canada: $40 Off Garmin Nuvi 40LM GPS (Now $99.99) + Free Shipping

Posted by on June 8, 2013 at 7:00 AM

The Source Canada: $40 Off Garmin Nuvi 40LM GPS (Now $99.99) + Free Shipping

The Source Canada is offering $40 off the Garmin Nuvi 40LM GPS. Originally $139.99, it is now on sale for $99.99.

Deep linking doesn’t work for us for some evil reason – so merely look up the product code #1917124 and you will be immediately taken the the sale priced GPS.

This GPS has pretty good reviews from buyers and many mention how easy it is to set up and the lifetime maps are big incentives.

The price for this GPS from The Source actually kicks their competition well. Best Buy has the same GPS for $139.99 and, which is notorious for their great prices, also has the GPS at $139.99.

I think a great gift for Father’s Day would be a GPS. My brother-in-law Henry uses one and I have never seen driving made simpler. I have been wanting to get one for my car because I get nervous when navigating roads I have never driven before. Now that I am moving from Alberta to Vancouver Island I will soon be only driving on roads I don’t know!

The Source Canada even offers free shipping on orders of $20 or more right now so you can get this shipped to your home for free!

Buytopia Canada: $85 For TomTom Go GPS Navigator (+ Shipping)

Posted by on June 6, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Buytopia Canada: $85 For TomTom Go GPS Navigator (+ Shipping)

This deal from Buytopia is a really amazing deal. Get the Tom Tom Go 2405TM 4.3″ portable bluetooth GPS navigator for only $85, normally $227. When price comparing I could not find this item for less than $150, so if you need a GPS navigator and have been waiting for a sale, now is the time.

GPS navigators and I do not get along. First of all, I can’t stand the ones who do not know who to speak phonetically. Lakeshore does not equal La-ka-sh – oor. Being an editor and writer, that drives me a bit batty. Instead of two hundred, my GPS says ta hundred. Never mind the crappy ways its leads me onto dirt roads instead of going to the highway. And when I ask for a gas station it takes me to the next exit, and then back on to the highway to go the other way to a gas station. How about one along the way or the shortest distance? As you can see, I think I need a new GPS.

This GPS is loaded to the nines with premium maps of Canada, U.S. and Mexico with on-demand updates. This feature is so important for someone who drives all over North America. It says that it knows the smartest and fastest routes with IQ Routes software, so I think this navigator could be my friend.

Intuitive menus and sharp graphics let you see exactly where you are going and you don’t need a degree in computer science to figure out how to use it. With touchscreen technology you can easily swipe from screen to screen and pinch to zoom.

The best part is the lifetime traffic and map updates, which will help you outsmart the traffic, which is great when you’ve got three screaming kids in the backseat.

Shipping is $8.99
