Zika Virus – Would You Travel This Year?!

Posted by on February 8, 2016 at 10:00 PM

Zika Virus   Would You Travel This Year?!

You have already heard of it I am sure, but will the Zika virus affect you travel plans this year? I know our Mooser Alexa was talking about cancelling her trip to Florida this year. The risks are just too high. If you are concerned about the Zika virus – what precautions are you taking? Most people that are confirmed to have the Zika virus right now are returning travelers. So if you have travel plans, that could be a scary issue! While the virus may not be life threatening for all of us, it can definitely be life altering for pregnant women. You’re going to want to read this.

The Zika virus is said to be transferred mostly through mosquito bites. Thankfully mosquito season is not upon us yet, but I am a little concerned for when it does get here. The Zika virus comes with symptoms like fever, rash, joint paint, conjunctivitis (red eyes) and more. It is generally a mild illness and the symptoms can last several days to a week.

NordicTrack Heart rate Monitor Only $39.94 @ Sears Canada

What is your New Year’s fitness resolution for 2016? I have the same general ‘get in shape’ resolution I have had for years, so I figure I should make tangible goals. To get the most from your workout, make sure your heart rate stays in the optimal zone with this NordicTrack Heart-rate Monitor. This design of heart-rate monitor is one of the most reliable out there as it uses a chest pulse sensor that communicates with the monitor on your wrist. The original price is not stated, but it is on clearance for $49.94. Use the $10 off coupon code 941612528 to bring your new heart-rate monitor down to $39.94.

This wireless device continuously monitors your heart rate and transmits the readings to the wrist portion. The wrist monitor goes beyond heart rate: it also has a personalized calorie counter and stop watch alerts. There is an alert system that will tell you when you drop out of your optimal workout heart-rate range as well. It is a pretty cool device, and I am terribly curious how the calorie counter works.  Read the rest of this entry »

Pick up this Vitamin D3 1000IU 180 + 180 Softgels FREE! offer. Originally $25.98, you pay $11.99. That is a grand total of 360 capsules.

Weight Watchers Canada: Only $10 For The First Month

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

Weight Watchers Canada: Only $10 For The First Month

Starting a healthier lifestyle can be tricky, but with today’s deal, Weight Watchers has you covered. Right now, you can sign-up to use Weight Watchers Canada online for only $10! That waives both the startup fee and reduces your first monthly payment, saving you $47.98!

We are lucky enough here at Bargainmoose to pair up with some fabulous companies. Today I have a great deal from Weight Watchers who want to help give you a jumpstart to a healthier summer. They have reduced the membership fee to $10 for the first month ($22.99 value) when you purchase a Standard Online Monthly Plan, meaning you can start your new healthy lifestyle plan today for only $10. After the initial first month, you will be automatically subscribed at the $22.99 rate per additional month however you are able to cancel the service after the first month if you prefer. I love when companies give me a taste like this without having tons of upfront commitment with my credit card.

Your deal will include access to all of the online tools including food tracking, fitness, weight, and other health factors. Take advantage of the live chat with coaches 24/7 when that ice cream or poutine is staring you in the face. You can also sync that fancy new Fitbit or another fitness tracker you bought seamlessly into the Weight Watchers online tools.

It is helpful to have those tracking tools on the go. My biggest hurdles to healthy eating are usually when we go out. I love our Sunday brunches with our friends, but I have trouble resisting some of those decadent platters. I try to order plates with more fruit and less bread, but some of the not as healthy items sometimes find their way on my plate. Those Nutella topped crepes can be tempting, but is terrible for my healthiness journey when they cover the plate in chocolate! Weight Watchers can help me to strategize both before I head out to the restaurant, and while I am comparing the menu. I can politely excuse myself from the conversation and quickly compare whether a plain pancake or a piece of bacon would fit better into my day. No one wants to pass up on bacon once it is on your plate, but Weight Watchers can help you decide before the plate hits the table. Then you can enjoy your conversations guilt-free while you enjoy your meal.

Weight Watchers uses a point system to help keep you on track but I also like their whole lifestyle approach to weight loss. Nothing is off limits, you just make choices during your day. The points system they use also helps you to figure out quickly what foods you can and cannot grab quickly to fit into your day, which is handy on the go. Counting calories is useful for successful weight loss, but at some point, you drive yourself crazy trying to remember exactly how many spoonfuls of your favourite yogurt equal 100 calories. Instead, use the point system and the huge database to get your answer quickly. That will surely help you stay on track when a million other things are crying out or your attention. Alternatively, maybe you are like me, and just one or two particularly loud children are crying for your attention. Either way, I need my answers fast. I may just pick up this fantastic deal myself to make sure I stay on track with my health goals over the summer.

Amazon Canada: Gaiam Balance Ball Chair Was $140 | Now $67 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 26, 2015 at 11:54 AM

Amazon Canada: Gaiam Balance Ball Chair Was $140 | Now $67 & Free Shipping

If you are reading this, you could be sitting in a chair like I am while writing this. Your back could be aching like mine as well. I have been considering one of these Gaiam balance ball chairs for a year now and I think now might be the time to take the plunge. Regularly $140, they are on sale at Amazon right now for as low as $67.02, depending on which chair you choose. With your order being over $25, it will ship free too.

These chairs are said to help strengthen your back, align your spine, relieve pain and more. This sounds good to me.

There are a few colours on sale and the black this time happens to be the cheapest. I find that interesting as usually the more lesser-wanted colours like purple usually go on sale for items like these.

The black was $140 and is now $67.02. I do see that the other chairs all come with DVDs, which could be why there is a price difference. The other colours are selling with a regular price of $139.99 and are now $71.53 for the blue and $84.99 for the purple and green.

All chairs also have castors on them so you can roll around your office as you would normally in your office chair. The ball is also removable so you can do exercises with them too. Just don’t let the kids get a hold of it, as you know it will be flying across your dining room table.

Just to show you how good of a deal this is, I price compared at so many other Canadian stores that sell these chairs:

I’m going to think that this chair will sell out as while I was writing, I saw the stock go down, so don’t wait!

Walmart Canada: 75% Off Hugo TranSport Chair & Walker *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 27, 2015 at 10:52 AM

Walmart Canada: 75% Off Hugo TranSport Chair & Walker *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has discounted the Hugo Folding Walker from $113.47 down to $28. The Hugo TranSport Chair is also on sale from $199.97 down to $50. Both of these items come with free shipping to your home.

Both of these are very heavily discounted – so much so that I am surprised they are still in stock. The walker is lightweight (6 lb) and folds up flat for storage so it is never in the way. Push a button on the unit to make the walker fold. The walker includes side storage bags and a pack of 5″ walker wheels for easier gliding. The adjustable height makes the walker more versatile. The Hugo Walker can handle up to 300lbs of weight.

If you have an elderly parent or grandparent – this can be very useful. My mother always kept a walker out at our place for my grandmother. When she came to stay, she didn’t need to pack her big walker into the car. Rather, she could use the one we had at the house for her.

Wheelchairs are really expensive, so if you need one buy this Hugo! The Hugo TranSport Chair is also quite light – weighing in at only 16 lbs. Like the walker, the wheelchair folds up so you can transport it and store it easily. The padded upholstery provides some comfort and there are built-in compartments for putting a few valuables – or a snack bar. Seat belt, rear brakes, and removable footrests are included. There is a maximum weight capacity of 250 lbs. Both the walker and the wheel chair assemble without tools.

I may be young but there are times in my life I wish I had a walker or a wheelchair. That time I tore a ligament in my foot and could not walk for two weeks – that would have been a nice time to have a walker. That time my friend and I collided while skating (I fell on top of him because he stopped suddenly) and he broke his ankle – that would have been a nice time to have a walker, or better yet a wheelchair. Honestly, crutches suck.

I am not sure how long these items will stay in stock, as they are 75% off and quite valuable for anyone who is elderly, has health conditions, or is accident-prone. Pick one up while you can.

TODAY ONLY! Sunbeam Mini Tower Air Purifier Was $70 | Now $41 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 20, 2015 at 8:52 AM

TODAY ONLY! Sunbeam Mini Tower Air Purifier Was $70 | Now $41 & Free Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

With spring flowers come springtime allergies. Make breathing a little easier with the Sunbeam Mini Tower Air Purifier which was $69.99 but is now only $40.99 @ This item qualifies for free super saver shipping too!

Air filters are an item I know well, as I have seasonal allergies to pollen and also allergies to dust. When the flowers start blooming, I start sneezing. While over the counter allergy relief products do help to keep the sniffles at bay, they get expensive plus who wants to be taking medication all the time? I find that by cleaning my house a little deeper and running an air cleaner, I am able to reduce the amount of allergy medication I need. I also do not like finding my bookshelf, TV and other furniture regularly covered in dust. A filter can help to reduce that dust.

This air purifier is a Sunbeam, which is a brand that holds its own in the air filter market. I have owned a Sunbeam in the past and it did the job well. This filter is a mini-size that is for small rooms up to 106 square feet. If you have trouble with allergies at work, this looks like it would be ideal to put on the edge of your desk. The machine also says it will remove 99% of contaminates in your space.

The filter has three settings, including a high setting with an extra-ionized boost. The first time you run a filter I recommend running it on high for a while before switching to low. I found any time I dusted it was a good idea to switch to high. I have also had success with a filter similar to this removing a damp smell from my basement after cleaning up a leak. Users are reporting that the two lower settings are quiet, but the highest setting is a little noisier.

I price shopped around a little bit, and here is what I found at the competitors for the same filter.

One reviewer on Walmart Canada seems to be having a positive experience with this filter.

This air purifier is great for the price. I bought it because we have a small child and was worried about the amount of dust in my apartment. Within a week, it has reduced the amount of dust by half at least.

With spring on the way, there will be more pollen and extra dust. I would grab this filter at this price now. This is the perfect size to use seasonally as it is not as large as the other giant filters. This Sunbeam is a special lightning deal today and will only be around as long as they have stock.

Vitarock Coupon Code: Exclusive 10% Discount

Viatrock Canada has given Bargainmoose an exclusive coupon code for 10% off your order with no minimum. Shop health supplements, natural food, personal care, and more at Vitarock Canada.

Click here to shop @ Vitarock Canada now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE10
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: Ongoing

This year I want to be healthy. I have tried to pick an area to focus on, but frankly, I need a full health makeover. I need to increase my vitamin and mineral intake. I need to re-hydrate (is it bad news when your hydration level is in the negative?). I also need to exercise not only to lose weight but also to increase muscle mass and strengthen my heart. My lungs could use a little help too. Oh, and dental hygiene? A good flossing routine would make my dentist dance for joy once he recovered from shock.

When I was first on the road to heath (many years ago), my naturopath prescribed some form of probiotic supplement to help my body out. This Renew Life Ultimate Flora 50 Billion Probiotic is just like what the doctor prescribed – quite useful for those with poor immune systems or anyone with stomach issues. A bottle of 30 vegetarian capsules retails for $36.99, but is on sale for $27.74.  After coupon code, you will pay $24.97.

I royally suck (pun intended) at flossing. I just never got the hang of it as a child. However, I am making a solid attempt in the New Year at flossing on a semi-regular basis. I picked up a roll of Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Dental Floss (Box of 6) and it is working rather well. I thought the tea tree would taste horrible but it is mild and seems to reduce the redness in my gums. While I picked up one box for a rather high price, you can buy a bulk pack of six on sale. Originally $28.38, they are on sale for $22.71. After coupon code, pay just $20.44. That averages out to around $3.41 per container of floss (50 m each).

This EO Everyone Bath Soak – Cycle looks nice for those evenings you just want to relax. Enjoy a mix of Epsom salt, Pine, juniper, and cedar wood essential oils for the ultimate soothing bath time experience. Originally $16.49 and on sale for $12.37, the bath salts come down to $11.13 after coupon.

Receive free shipping on orders of $50 or more. For this and any future Vitarock coupon codes, please visit our forum.

Costco Canada: $20 Off HappyLight Liberty Energy Lamp Now $80 *BUMP*

Posted by on January 9, 2015 at 2:15 PM

Costco Canada: $20 Off HappyLight Liberty Energy Lamp Now $80 *BUMP*

*Bumping this for all of us sad about this cold weather since it is on sale again!* Daylight is getting shorter each evening as it gets later into the season. Fight the winter blues with a HappyLight Liberty Energy Lamp from Costco Canada for just $79.99, originally $99.99. That price includes shipping and handling as well as a replacement bulb.

I price compared this lamp with a few other places to make sure you are getting the best deal. Here is what I found at the competitors:

  • $99.95 @ Amazon Canada (OOS)
  • $119.96 @ SAD Therapy Lamps Canada
  • $129.99 @ Bed Bath & Beyond Canada

Costco’s offer is even better as the other offers do not mention a replacement bulb included in the offer. Bulbs of this size and specialty can be rather expensive, so you are certainly getting a good deal.

What this lamp does:

Essentially, the lamp gives 10,000 LUX of light output at 14” from the lamp. You have the ability to control the intensity and to change lenses for high intensity or low glare. The Liberty Energy lamp provides light therapy.

Light therapy can be used for many purposes. Frequent travelers who suffer from jet lag can use it to readjust their body to a new time zone faster. People who work shift-work often find light therapy allows them to adjust to coming off and going on different shifts – making the transition less stressful on the body. A friend of mine just started working night shift, she found forcing her body to stay away at night and sleep during the day was quite difficult. A lamp like this during the night and blackout curtains during the day could help her body adjust easier.

Perhaps the most well known use for these lamps is to treat seasonal affective disorder – SAD for short. It is the body’s reaction to reduced light intake during the winter. Often the body becomes horribly short on vitamin D (so take a good supplement) and people who suffer from the disorder feel lethargic, extremely sad, and have difficulty being productive or living a normal life during the winter months. Lamps like these treat the disorder by mimicking sunlight unlike normal bulbs.
A friend of mine suffers from SAD and one of these lamps has really helped her survive living on the West Coast. I have considered buying one since moving here as well.

With the replacement bulb, and all shipping and handling charges included, you will be set up for quite a long time. I think this is a good offer.

Rivalus Canada: QWK KIT Only $30 ($180 Value) & Free Shipping

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

Rivalus Canada: QWK KIT Only $30 ($180 Value) & Free Shipping

Rivalus Canada has a really sweet deal on their QWK Kit for athletes – receive two kits (a double kit) for just $30 with free shipping. The kits are worth $89.99 each, so this bundle has a total value of $179.98.

As athletes know, true performance supplements and drinks can be incredibly expensive that is why this deal that Rivalus put on for Black Friday (and that is still on) is so amazing. The QWK Kit is designed to bring out the fullest potential in an athlete before any big event. Here is how it works.

There are four bottles:

  • Size
  • Strenght
  • Stamina
  • Speed

In each bottle are enough tablets for a week’s worth of servings. Not all serving sizes are the same, so the number of tablets in each bottle differs. Starting four weeks before your big event, you take one supplement for a week, and then start on the next supplement once the first one is finished. You start with size, then strength, then stamina, and then finish with speed. This kit is designed as a ‘peaking kit’ – to help athletes reach their peak performance. You can read an entire list of ingredients on their website.

Now, for $30 you are going to get two of these kits and free shipping. That is a pretty awesome deal right there. If my calculations are correct, you receive 119 tablets in just one kit, so you will be getting nearly 240 tablets for $30. For performance supplements, I think that is unheard of.

The only small downsize of this deal is that the pills do expire in March 2015 so you should only buy if your event(s) are between now and then. While your pills will not magically go from powerful to not working in one day, they will be less potent as they age.

I have no idea when this deal expires, so pick it up soon. There are some other great deals at Rivalus’s website too if this does not catch your fancy. Check out the Pre – Intra – Post Deal where you receive $174.97 worth of product for just $102.93.

HealthSnap Canada Black Friday Promo Code: $10 off $25

HealthSnap Canada Black Friday Promo Code: $10 off $25

HealthSnap has a hot coupon on right now for all your pharma store needs this Black Friday. Get $10 off your $25 order and that includes sale and regular priced items.

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: BFCM14
  • Discount: $10 off $25
  • Expiry: 1st December 2014

While shopping at HealthSnap may not be as fun as shopping clothing or toy deals, it is probably more necessary. Why not stock up on all the things you need for your cabinets, like vitamins, soap, health aids and even beauty products? I also noticed that some products are already cheaper at HealthSnap, than they are at other stores like and Walmart. You’ll of course want to price compare, but once you add the $10 off, you’ll want to factor in your total price.

For example, condoms are a fact of life for many people, and since its Black Friday, why not save on this important part of life! These Trojan Supra BareSkin non-latex condoms sound like the type of condom you might want to wear if you wore condoms. They are $10.49 for six, which sounds expensive, but considering what they are used for, I’m going to hope they are worth it! At Walmart, these same condoms are $12.98. Lets say you get three boxes because you have a fun week ahead of you. At Walmart, you’d pay $38.94. Right now with this deal, you’ll pay $21.47. That’s only $1.75 a shag.

And, if you haven’t been using the items above, you might be shopping the baby and kid section instead (or both). Materna vitamins were what I used and they sell 100 tablets for $20.99. sells the same box for $23.99. Add some Palmer’s cocoa butter massage lotion for those stretch marks to-be for $6.39. You’ll get both for a total of $17.38, which is a steal!

The only thing that gets me down with this coupon is that free shipping is available on a $50 order, so to save that money, you’ll have to spend that much, but you might be anyway if the prices are better than the other stores anyway. You could also ship your items free to your local pharmacy.

Stop by the HealthSnap coupon page before you shop to pick up all your coupons!
