Groupon Canada: $5 Account Credit When You Find The Cat

Posted by on December 5, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Groupon Canada: $5 Account Credit When You Find The Cat

How hard can it be to find a cat? And whose cat do you need find? There is a really cute game on Facebook right now called Find the Cat. Once you find it, you’ll be rewarded with a $5 Groupon credit that you can use on any $5 or more Groupon. This means that you can, as I did, get a free Groupon!

It is actually not as easy as you think to find the cat. There are a bunch of squares with deals in them, scroll over each one and the cat will sort of pop out at you once you find him. I actually had to do it three times as I couldn’t find that pesky critter!

Once I did, I just had to sign in to my Groupon account, choose my deal, and my credit was automatically deducted and I paid $0. Yippee!

I choose to get this Menchies $5 for $10 worth of frozen yogurt deal, which means $0 for $10 worth of frozen yogurt, which is free! There are only select locations available, and there weren’t any near my house, but there was one near my mom’s house, so I’m just going to give it to her to treat herself or her and the kids the next time they are there.

I also considered getting this Marble Slab deal (I see a little pattern here). It also is only select locations on the west side of the country. For $9.99 with your coupon, you can get an ice cream cake.

There are lots of other deals under $10 that you can use this credit on, getting your deals free or nearly free, just for finding a cat on Facebook. The selection is so huge, I couldn’t possibly tell you about every deal there is, especially since I personally find the local ones the best value.

Don’t forget to check the coupon page for coupons you can use with your account credit to get the most bang for your buck.

Just $5 For $10 Starbucks Gift Card @ Groupon Canada (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 17, 2014 at 10:35 AM

Just $5 For $10 Starbucks Gift Card @ Groupon Canada (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Calling all Starbucks and coffee lovers: Groupon is currently offering a $10 Starbucks egift card for just $5! But hurry because there’s no telling when this promotion might end.

Officially, this amazing promotion is set to end in four days, BUT there are only limited quantities available and given Starbucks’ popularity, these are sure to sell out like hot cakes. Also, it would seem that today, on Monday November 17th, it might be invite-only and may only work for those who received the e-mail in their inbox. If it doesn’t work for you today, then make sure to try again tomorrow, on Tuesday, when the deal officially goes live. Keep in mind that you will be receiving an electronic gift card that can then be redeemed at your local Starbucks store.

This deal is very interesting as it has come right on the heels of Starbucks’ other promotion, which was for a BOGO deal on holiday drinks. It ended yesterday but Groupon’s offer is nearly the same with the exception being that it’s better. Rather than having to get two drinks right away for the price of one, you can get what you what, whenever you want. Well, as long as you don’t exceed the $10 value! Just $5 For $10 Starbucks Gift Card @ Groupon Canada (HOT!!) (EXPIRED)

Whether you’re a Starbucks veteran or a rare visitor, I suggest using this gift card on one of their holiday drinks like a caramel brule latte, a chestnut praline latte, an eggnog latte, a gingerbread latte or a peppermint mocha. All of these are made with a shot or two of espresso (depending on the size you get) and are sure to get you in the holiday spirit within just a couple of seconds of sipping it!

The pumpkin spice latte should still be available at most stores as well and that is another extremely popular choice around this time. You could also use your gift card to get a gift for someone on your Christmas list as Starbucks sells plenty of drinkware and coffee beans in-stores.

Once your get your card, make sure to use it within 180 days or else it will expire. I’m sure that won’t be too hard of a task for you coffee-lovin’ Moosers, especially with the winter flurries we are about to face. It’s also only valid within Canadian Starbucks stores and there is a limit of one gift card per person.

Groupon Canada Promo Codes: Up To 15% Off

Posted by on September 26, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Groupon Canada Promo Codes: Up To 15% Off

Groupon has come out with a whole load of promo codes to make their already discounted deals that much better. You can get 15% off things to do, getaways and local beauty and spa deals. You can also get 10% off home goods and bedding. I won’t bore you with all the coupon codes, as you can find them as you’d like on the Groupon coupon page in our forum.

I’ve bought a number of Groupons over the years and adding coupon codes to make the deals even better really seals the deal. I see a number of deals I’d like to take advantage of in the Things To Do section.

Since I am near Toronto, I can look at my closest city and Toronto for deals. This winery tour and tasting really piques my interest as I love wine and it is very close to home. For two of us, instead of paying $45 the price is down to $18, but comes to $15.30 with the addition of the promo code. I could also get the one for four and bring some friends (they’ll never know what I paid) for only $24.65 instead of $90! We even get truffles!

I am not going to miss out on this Toronto Zoo deal. We go to the Toronto Zoo every year, usually in the spring or fall as I don’t like the summer crowds. Instead of paying $18 each for my three kids, I’ll pay $9.18 each, which saves me almost $30 just on their admission. For myself and my husband, instead of paying $28 at the door, we’ll pay $14.28 each for a total savings for the whole family of more than $50 just for one visit. If you wanted to go more than once, you could buy more Groupons as you are only limited to 25.

The getaway deals look great too, and with the addition of 50% off, you can’t lose, especially since some of the getaways cost in the thousands of dollars. Of course, some are very affordable local getaways too.

You’ll want to take advantage of these coupons code today as they all expire tomorrow.

Groupon Canada: $20 For $40 @ Costume Supercentre

Posted by on September 12, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Groupon Canada: $20 For $40 @ Costume Supercentre

I know summer is dying down and it is getting you depressed. Why not cheer yourself up with a Halloween costume? While it isn’t sunscreen, margaritas and swims in the lake, Halloween is a nice second choice to summer. Groupon has a fantastic deal on right now, getting you $40 worth of items at CostumeSupercentre.ca for only $20.

Halloween is huge in the Webster household and not just for the kids. My husband is a huge fan of dressing up and one Halloween, I actually had to stop his marathon 2-hour makeup session so the kids could actually get ready and go trick or treating. We also love decorating our house and yard for the occasion, but I feel bad for the kids who come to our house thinking they’ll get some good candy because both my husband and I are too excited to take the kids out that we don’t stay home to hand out candy. I do leave a bowl by the door but I usually find it completely empty by the time we get home so either some lucky kid got rich or I just really had a lot of kids.

My family loves to do themes when it comes to costumes. For example, one year we were all scary and last year we were all plays on words like “cereal killer and candy rapper”. This year, I’m not quite sure, but I bet I could get some great ideas from Costume Supercentre.

What’s really cool about them is that they ship from Canada, which I believe they are the only costume store to do so. This means no duties and custom fees and you know you won’t be waiting until Christmas to get your order.

It looks like you can only buy one of these deals for yourself and one as a gift and you must use the full amount in one transaction before the end of the year. It also says it can’t be used with any other promotions, but I’d be very interested to see if it would work with any of the coupons we have listed on Costume Supercentre’s coupon page.

Shipping is free when you spend $80, which you still could with this certificate, you’ll get your $20 off no matter what you spend over $40.

Groupon Canada Promo Code: 10% Off Local Food & Drink Deals

Groupon Canada Promo Code: 10% Off Local Food & Drink Deals

Groupon has the perfect coupon to get your weekend started right. Get 10% off local food and drink deals. While 10% is not a huge amount, these deals are already deeply discounted, so you are really just getting an added bonus.

Click here to shop for food & drink deals @ Groupon.com now

  • Coupon Code: EAT10
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 12th July 2014

I want to show you examples of how you’ll save, but with local deals, they are different for every city. So, I’ll give you some examples of deals in different cities, but be sure to check out your own city.

I recently moved from London, Ontario and notice that they have a deal on Marble Slab, which just so happens to be my favourite ice cream place. For $20 (with a regular price of $39.90), you’ll get two key lime or butter pecan pies or one picnic pack. Add the coupon and you’ll pay only $18. I’m going to assume this deal is available in a lot of the other cities on Groupon.

Toronto has 117 food and drink deals. I am now living in closer proximity to Toronto and will probably go there at least a few times a year to go out to eat. While Sugartiers is actually located in Markham, I couldn’t resist checking out this deal for one dozen assorted macarons or cake pops. For $19, with a regular price of $42, you’ll get your sugar fix for only $15.20! Sweet!

There are so many food deals available, with everything from Poutine to fine dining to cupcake to Indian. I think I could get all of the Groupons. And really, I could. There is no limit to how many Groupons you buy with this coupon, so why not stock up and try a new restaurant every Friday night. It forces you to go out, try something new (or get a great deal on an old favourite). If I could eat for a living, I would, but I write instead and that’s second best.

What restaurants should I try out Bargainmoosers?

Buy a $10 Starbucks Gift Card For $5 @ Groupon!

Posted by on June 12, 2014 at 6:37 AM

Buy a $10 Starbucks Gift Card For $5 @ Groupon!

Quick post! For 48 hours only, Groupon has brought back their deal for Starbucks eGift cards. If you buy a $5 Starbucks gift card, you’ll receive a $10 one!

The Groupon site says that the deal is good to the end of the 13th June, but that there is a limited quantity available. If you want one of these Starbucks eGift cards, don’t wait until later in case they sell out. There have been over a thousand Starbucks gift cards bought already at the time of writing this post.

This is always a super-popular deal from Groupon, and they usually sell tens of thousands of these deals. It’s handy because everyone knows Starbucks, and most people probably live pretty close to a Starbucks location, and these Groupons can be used anywhere. I’ve bought it many times in the past, very useful for some cheap summer frapucinnos!

I see in the small print that these gift cards can also be used at Teavana stores, I hadn’t noticed that before. That’s a good deal for those of us who prefer tea to coffee.

The gift cards are good through to the end of 2014, so you have plenty of time to make use of them.

Groupon Canada Promo Code: 20% Off A Local Health & Fitness Deal

Posted by on March 22, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Groupon Canada Promo Code: 20% Off A Local Health & Fitness Deal

I love when Groupon has coupons because that means you are getting a deal on top of a deal! Right now with promo code, you can get 20% off one local health and fitness deal.

Click here to shop @ Groupon.com now

  • Coupon Code: ACTIVE20
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 23rd March 2014

This really is a coupon code I can get behind. I bought a Groupon once for a local boot camp for only $30 for three weeks of boot camp. The Groupon was well worth it as the instructor normally charged $16 a class (less if you signed up longer), and I got my butt kicked. It was the hardest workout I had ever done and within three weeks, I was already noticed a big difference. The instructor was amazing and I loved being there, even though it hurt so badly. When the three weeks was up, I ended up signing up for another few sessions, until he actually had to move his location and it was too far for me to go. In the end, the Groupon worked out for me and him because I would never had tried it at full price, but I did and loved it, which was great for him as he got a new client.

In an alternative situation, I bought a Groupon for a local MMA place and tried it a few times and did not like it at all. I didn’t go back, but it only cost me $20 and I wasn’t locked in. I think buying Groupons for local fitness facilities is truly a win-win.

In looking at what is available in my city, it isn’t really just traditional fitness deals. They have karate, acupuncture, allergy testing, supplements and so much more.

Remember, you only have until tomorrow to use this Groupon coupon code.

Thrifty Travels to Niagara Falls

Posted by on March 14, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Thrifty Travels to Niagara Falls

This past March Break, I took the family to Niagara Falls. Honestly, I would never recommend that to anyone. It was way too crowded for my liking, and I think I’d much rather go during the off-season, when I’d also get better rates. The terms Niagara Falls and thrifty don’t usually go together, as everything there is at an escalated price, plus there is a tourist tax added on top of these high prices. But, I found a way to do in a wallet-friendly way, both through trial and error and through research. I’ve been to the Falls at least 20 times, so I think I’m a little bit of an expert on what to do and what not to do.

Fallsview vs. Cityview or No View

First, you’ll need somewhere to stay. Most people want the entire package – the fallsview room with the jacuzzi and the full-service hotel. If you want to save some money, you might need to cut back on your expectations. I’ve stayed in both fallsview and cityview rooms and really, the fallsview is much nicer, but you get bored of it rather quickly, especially if you are going out and about quite often. If this is a romantic trip and you’ll be spending quite a bit of time in bed or in the jacuzzi, then definitely splurge, otherwise save your money. Another time you might want a fallsview room is when they will be having fireworks over the falls. It is nice to have the option to watch them from your room in case everyone is tired, or you don’t feel like standing out in the street.

Savings: $30+

Off The Beaten Track

When choosing where to stay and if you’ve already decided you don’t need a spectacular view, decide if you can live with being a little farther away from the action. There are quite a few smaller hotels that are behind the big ones that look over the falls and offer much better rates. The difference between staying at the Best Western on Lundy’s Lane compared to the Hilton on Fallsview Blvd. is a matter of about $100. This is the same with other hotels in the bigger chains that do are not on Fallsview. You can still get a really nice hotel a few streets back and you’ll save quite a few dollars. Take a look at Trip Advisor for reviews and ratings on all the hotels.

Savings $100+

Group Deals

I’ve both reserved rooms directly with the hotel and bought group deals for hotels and I would have to say a group deal is the clear winner. Both WagJag and Groupon have all different types of hotel deals, most with meal and activity credits included. I would suggest using Trip Advisor to read reviews of each hotel and reviews of the activities and restaurants included too. You really have to do your research because you could read “$100 meal credit” as  being an amazing deal on an $80 hotel deal, but that restaurant’s cheapest meal might be upwards of $100 on its own. Our WagJag deal included a $70 credit for Ruth Chris and while you can’t find any information about pricing online, I went right into the restaurant, looked at the menu and found that most entrees were $70+ and your side was an additional $12! My family of five would have spent a few hundred dollars there even with the credit. We turned around and found an all you can eat deal at a Brazilian place, where my two younger ones also ate free.  With our WagJag being only $80, and including a few things we did happen to partake in, it was still an amazing deal as the hotel was nice, clean and not too far from the main drag.

Savings: $50+

Eating Out

Like I said, Niagara Falls restaurants have upsized prices, even the chain restaurants you are used to back home add a few dollars to their prices. You really need to pick and choose where you’d like to eat if you want to keep costs down. Even a simple ice cream cone from Dairy Queen was not cheap. Your best bet might be to get off the main strip and head into the city of Niagara Falls, where there are a number of great restaurants frequented by locals that have regular price meals. I would also suggest you bring as much food as you can and find a hotel with a refrigerator, because all those little snacks you’ll buy really add up.

Savings: $50+

Having Some Fun

There is so much to do in Niagara Falls, it is hard to be bored. This past trip we went to one of the wax museums and Ripley’s Believe or Not. I had actually been to both before, but the kids hadn’t and while they mostly enjoyed it, my little one was not too fond of the life-size and life-like wax people. We hadn’t planned on going in there, but the guy out front offered us a deal, with both places included and didn’t make us pay for the kids. If you’d like to go to one of these places, haggling is always an option. If cutting a deal is just not the way you work, you simply have to ask “is this the best price, or can we do better?” and see what you get. If you do get a group buy deal, many of them come with arcade tokens, laser tag, mini golf and other such fun little attractions. I have to say, they all seem better than they are. While I found many of these attractions fun for the kids, I would never put my money towards them if they weren’t included. Don’t expect much is basically what I’m saying. We wasted a good hour in the arcade and the kids loved it, but with $100 worth of credits, the only prize my kids got at the end were three small candies, even with thousands of earned tickets. If you plan ahead, you can get something like the Clifton Hill fun pass or the Wonder Pass. These will save you money over paying for each attraction individually.

Savings: $25+

Getting Around

Driving is fine to get around in Niagara Falls, but know that parking is very steep. Most hotels cost $25 to park there, but they usually also offer off-site parking for less. Get one person to drop everyone and the luggage off and then park farther away. It is worth it. The same goes for when going to attractions. To park at the Falls, it is at least $15 (seems to change with the season), but if you can park farther away, you can get away with as low as $5. Sometimes the group deals and passes come with WeGo passes, which is the transit system just for the tourists around Niagara Falls. The only downside is that the buses don’t seem to run that often and the waits can be really annoying. You can also buy WeGo passes, and if you aren’t willing to pay for parking, they can  be worth it. Another option is to walk everywhere, but the Falls area is pretty hilly, so wear good shoes!

Savings: $10 – $25

Waterparks

Niagara Falls has a few waterparks and I’m proud to say I’ve been to all of them. Each has their own uniqueness, but I have to say my favourite and the best value is Great Wolf Lodge. Because only hotel guests can use the waterpark, Great Wolf Lodge is really never that crowded and I’ve been there when the hotel was sold out over Christmas break. There are also quite a few other things to do at the hotel, although there is also an additional cost, so be aware that you might spend more money, even if you don’t leave the hotel. The restaurant there offers a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner and while I found it pricey, it is cheaper than going out to the Falls to eat (as I found out the hard way). As I said above, bring any food that you can from home and save some money. We also been to Waves, which is a much smaller waterpark, and while fun, I think it is best for parents with babies and not older children. They also let in people from other hotels, including daycares and school groups, and the cost of a hotel room with an included waterpark pass is not that much cheaper than Great Wolf Lodge. The Fallsview waterpark is what I would call, the worst deal. It gets insanely crowded because anyone can attend and it is $50 a person to get in, aged three and up. You can get passes from Costco, which are only $28 a person, and so much better of a deal, but don’t plan on getting them anywhere near Niagara, because they won’t have them in the store. You can order online and print at home though. You can also get hotel deals for the Fallsview, but the deals I found were still quite expensive and not worth it in my opinion.

Savings $50+

Bargainmoosers, what do you like to do in Niagara Falls and how do you save money when visiting there?

Groupon Canada: OtterBox Defender $19.99 (Save $40)

Groupon Canada: OtterBox Defender $19.99 (Save $40)

Groupon Canada is selling the OtterBox Defender Series iPhone 5 Case for only $19.99, which has a value of $59.95.

OtterBox is the name in cell phone cases right now and these are selling like hot cakes. I assume hot cakes used to sell really well. You have your choice of six different designs/colours:

  • AP Blazed
  • AP Pink
  • Blush
  • Bolt
  • Bloom
  • Real Tree Xtra

They feature a durable multilayer design with a polycarbonate inner layer and a silicone exterior. It comes with a screen protector and a belt-clip holster, which also doubles as viewing stand. The product does ship in from the US but the price includes all duty/customs. Applicable GST/HST tax is added at checkout according to Groupon.

Make sure to include your correct address when you checkout as these will ship to the address you provide Groupon.

I have looked at the price of OtterBox products in stores and this is certainly a great deal. It seems over 430 people so far also agree!

Click here to get this deal @ Groupon.com now

  • Coupon Code: TWENTYOFFLOCAL
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 6th March 2014

This deal is only on local deals, which don’t necessarily have to be in your local area, but they have to be listed under the local deals section on Groupon’s site. Under my city’s local deals there are so many deals to choose from, including some online deals that aren’t really local to my city. I have been eying up a sushi deal in my city. It is only $15 for $30 worth of sushi and it a place that I really love. With this promo code, I’ll actually only pay $12 for $30 worth of sushi!

There is a golf voucher there that would make a great Father’s Day gift for my husband worth $140, but on sale for $65. If I add the coupon, I’ll pay only $52 for golf for four, cart rental and lunch! Very sweet deal!

It looks like you might only be able to buy one deal with this promo code, but let me know if you got away with more. It is good until midnight PST, so the rest of us on the east coast have a little extra time to shop. There is also a maximum discount of $50 too.

  • Coupon Code: 10OFF40LOCAL

While Groupon says these are only for local deals – deals where the business is located near you – when I clicked on shop local now, it took me the wide range of deals available. This means Bargainmoosers will have to do their research to figure out which deals apply and which don’t. I’m going to assume Groupon Goods aren’t included. There is a tab at the left side that says Local, so start your search there before branching out to other deals.

I recently posted some kick-butt ideas for Valentine’s dates, and I’m sure most of these are still available for purchase and all of them were local to the town I was blogging about. I really like the restaurant and other service Groupons because it allows me to try something out I may not have tried out at quite a discounted price.

Before doing any online shopping, the forum is a great place to stop for coupon codes like this one from Groupon.

Groupon Canada: Get The Perfect Last Minute Valentine’s Gift

Posted by on February 14, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Groupon Canada: Get The Perfect Last Minute Valentines Gift

Looking for the perfect last minute Valentine’s gift? Groupon has it.

What’s great about Groupons is that they are mostly just print and go, so you can get them up until 10 minutes before your date. They have some really cool ones, which are perfect as Valentine’s gifts.

This Mystery Date Groupon really struck me as such a fun idea. For only $35, you’ll get two dinners and two alcoholic beverages with a value of $55. I think that is quite the steal and takes the grunt work out of planning the date. If the place sucks, you’ll have a good laugh and won’t have spent more than $40. This Groupon is available in the Ottawa area.

I’ve always wanted to do boudoir photos and am considering it for my next big birthday. This gift is for both of you, so you really can’t go wrong and price is out of this world. For only $75, you get a one-hour photo session and a $25 credit towards prints worth $250. This one is available for all the Vancouverites.

In Toronto, I found this painting party Groupon, which is held at bars and restaurants in the Toronto area and makes quite the unique date idea. It is only $27.50, but worth $45.

Take your date on a race car adventure in Halifax with the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. For only $64 (value of $129), you’ll get 1 hour of laps in a ride-along experience.

These Groupons all make unique and thoughtful gifts for your loved one if you waited until the afternoon on Valentine’s Day to decide you wanted to get something.

There are plenty of other great ideas, so see what’s available in your city.

Groupon Canada: Curves Workouts As Low As $19

Once you’ve eaten all that healthy frozen yogurt, you might be thinking about your workout and your lack of one. Curves is a great place for women to get started working out and right now Groupon has a fantastic deal on that will save you money on visits to Curves.

I have known a number of people who have done Curves for a workout and have loved it. I find that it is especially good for beginners who aren’t quite sure what to do to workout. Curves employs circuit training where you do cardio and weights for 30 total minutes, switching from station to station as you go. Thirty minutes should really not be that hard to do each day, and it is what is recommended just for heart health, never mind that you’ll feel better and look better too.

There are three options for this Groupon:

  • C$19 for 5 fitness workouts (up to a $73.50 value)
  • C$29 for 10 fitness workouts (up to a $98 value)
  • C$39 for 20 fitness workouts (up to a $147 value)

You have to be a new member or a member who hasn’t gone in six months to take part in this deal. I did notice on the Curves website that you can get your first week free, but if you do that first, you won’t be able to use this Groupon. If you end up loving Curves and want to join as a member after using your Groupon, your initiation fee will be waived.

Do it! Jillian Michaels says so!

Groupon Canada: Jewellery Deals For Valentine’s Day Only $19.99

Groupon Canada: Jewellery Deals For Valentines Day Only $19.99

If you are looking for something special for your loved one this love day, look no further than Groupon. They have some amazing deals on items that look beautiful and will be cherished by the recipient. You don’t have to spend hundreds to have stunning jewellery.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted a tennis bracelet. Don’t ask me why, but I just see elegance and beauty in a diamond covered bracelet. While this one from Groupon is not made with diamonds, but instead Cubic Zirconia, it is still gorgeous and quite a deal at only $19.99, was $99.99.

If earrings are more her style, these Swavrovski Elements earrings and pendant sets are also only $19.99, was $109. Choose from a variety of colours, which could be her birthstone (mine is opal).

I absolutely love these locket necklaces with a custom plate. Not just for Valentine’s Day, these would make a great Mother’s Day gift too. Also only $19.99, was $51.98.

These Genevive Love sterling silver ring or bracelet is very pretty and a lady would be lucky to receive it. Was $129, now $19.99.

Shipping costs will depend on the deal you get.
