Today Only @ Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Montecito Bonded High Back Chair + NO TAX & Free Shipping   Now $150 (expired)

Need a new office chair? Today only, Best Buy has discounted the Montecito bonded high-back manager & executive chair by 50% off. It was originally priced as high as $299.99 but is now just $149.98. Plus, you won’t be any tax on it as part of Best Buy’s current “no tax on all furniture” event and it will also be shipped for free — can’t get any better than that!

Made of bonded leather, the Montecito chair has soft to the touch exterior, a pneumatic seat adjustment along with fixed and padded armrests. It’s high back chair, which is ideal for the spine. It also comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

I love the look of this chair. It looks like a professional and elegant chair that could easily make any home office look more upscale. A couple of these could even be bought for numerous people at a small office but just don’t forget that this deal will end at midnight tonight as part of Best Buy’s Daily Deal Countdown, during which different markdowns are offered on a daily basis until February 26th.

Don’t panic when you see tax fees get added to your shopping cart once you go to checkout because the tax total will then be subtracted from the price of the chair, putting the total at $149.98. It’s just Best Buy’s way of applying the no tax promotion.

Today Only @ Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Montecito Bonded High Back Chair + NO TAX & Free Shipping   Now $150 (expired)

Reviews are mixed. At Best Buy’s site, the Montecito has 7 reviews and a total of 2.7/5 stars. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

After a relatively easy assembly, the chair is very comfortable. Only had brief difficulties attaching the arms. Chair lifts and drops, however does not recline. Aside from that, overall great computer chair.

However, I also found the Montecito chair at Staples for $223.34 and 21 reviews with a total of 4/5 stars with comments like this one:

This is the best chair I’ve ever bought. My son assembled it in no time; it’s comfortable, high enough, and doesn’t squeak. Since we always fight for it, I’m buying another one!

As you can see, it really seems to be a matter of preference.

Usually, Best Buy ships all orders over $25 for free but I wasn’t sure that it would apply to this chair as well. I’m happy to report that it does indeed qualify for free shipping, which is particularly awesome for those of you who don’t have a car or perhaps have one that is too small to fit a large box.

Staples Canada: Hammermill Copy Plus Paper Was $57 | Now $38 (FS @ $45)

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 2:41 PM

Staples Canada: Hammermill Copy Plus Paper Was $57 | Now $38 (FS @ $45)

Staples is having a 4-day sale, with up to 50% off a number of items. One item of particular interest is the Hammermill Copy Plus 20lb paper, with 5,000 sheets in a case. Regularly $57.39, it is now on sale for $37.98.

I think there isn’t a person out there who couldn’t use this deal. If you have a printer, you need paper. While 5,000 sheets may seem like a lot, if you do a lot of printing, you could quickly go through that case of paper. My husband is always complaining how much paper I use for printing and how much ink and paper costs. I’d love to just get this deal and say “now we’re even”.

While there is nothing completely special about this paper, it is general-use paper ideal for printing, faxing, photocopying and more. It does have a 99.9% jam-free guarantee, which if you’ve dealt with machines that often jam, you’ll know this is mega-important. Paper jams I think were causing 99.9% of the stress I had in my life when I worked in an office and did a lot of printing and photocopying.

It does look like there are some other special features of this paper like colourLok technology, which means it produces more vivid and bolder colours and it dries three times faster. It is also FSC certified, which is always good to know when you are using a paper product.

I did price compare and found this paper on Amazon for $60.49 and that was it for Canadian companies. I did find it for $53.99 at Office Depot in the U.S., so this Staples deal is definitely quite a saving.

With free shipping at $45, and a $15 shipping charge on this item, you’ll want to up your cart by those few extra dollars by buying two cases (you can never have too much!) or checking out the other deals available in the 4-day sale. Something like these BlueDiamond high speed HDMI cables will get you up over your total and who can’t use more HDMI cables. These were $9.98 and now $3.98.

This deal may sell out quick, as this morning they had 900 units sold and now have over 1000 sold.

Canadian Tire: $150 Off iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum – Now $300 (In-Stores Only)

Posted by on February 15, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Canadian Tire: $150 Off iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum   Now $300 (In Stores Only)

Cleaning sucks. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just skip this annoying chore altogether and have more time for yourself? The Roomba may be the solution and luckily the 630 model is currently on sale for $299.99 at Canadian Tire but only in-stores. It was originally priced at $449.99, thus putting it at a 30% discount.

Since I have two cats, I recently bought the Vileda ViRobi because it’s a more affordable version of a robot vacuum but needless to say, it didn’t exactly perform the way I wanted it to and I have since given it to my parents.

With two cats and a baby, I need a better solution and the iRobot Roomba 630 vacuum looks like it could definitely get the job done and leave me with more time to run after the baby. Canadian Tire: $150 Off iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum   Now $300 (In Stores Only)

Originally, I was a little wary of whether it would get the job done, especially since it is on the pricier side but the reviews are very reassuring. All of the reviews on Canadian Tire’s are for the more part 5/5 stars, with only one giving this vacuum a 4/5 star review. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

Thought about buying this for years actually, but through it was a gimmick. When they went on sale at Christmas, I broke down and bought one. End results? Why didn’t I buy one sooner!

And here’s another review:

I was leery about a robotic vacuum, but the IRobot is incredible. It not only does all the work for you but it does a great job. I have lots of pets, so lots of fur everywhere. IRobot picks it all up…you do have to clean the roller regularly but you don’t have to do the vacuuming!

Here are some of the most noteworthy features:

  • Works on hardwood floowers, carpet, tile & laminate flooring
  • May be scheduled
  • Comes with virtual walls to block certain sections
  • 3-stage cleaning system
  • Dirt detect

On Amazon, the iRobot Roomba 630 vacuum is currently on sale for $379.99 (reg. $512.14).

As I already mentioned, this deal is in-stores only but make sure to check if your local store has it in stock first by entering your postal code on the Roomba 630 product page.

Staples: Dollar Deals – Up to 70% Off Office Supplies

Posted by on February 10, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Staples: Dollar Deals   Up to 70% Off Office Supplies

Dollar Days have started at Staples Canada. Receive up to 70% off small office supplies starting at just $0.50.

Despite the advertised ‘up to 70% off’, I found sale prices above this discount. Here are some deals in each of the price categories that you pay want to check out.

$1 Deals and under

These are my favourite deals as everything is so inexpensive. I Pick up a tub of Staples® Binder Clips, Small 3/4″, Black, 40/Tub on sale from $4.95 down to just $1. Use them for sorting papers, keeping your taxes organized, and sealing up bags of spices so they do not leak all over your drawer or shelves. Instead of trying to find a table to write on (or using the wall), purchase a Staples Mini Magnetic Clipboard, 5-2/5″ x 3-7/10″, Assorted. Originally $4.98, the clipboard is now $0.75. Personally, I need a handful of these 3M™ Lint Roller, Mini that were $2.94 and are now $1 each.

$2 Deals

This section is all about great binder deals. This Five Star Style Poly Binder, 1.5″ is the best deal of them all. Originally $6.99, pay just $2. The binder comes with one coloured poly divider with two storage pockets. The Mead® Dot & Zag Casemade Binder, 1.5″ is also a good option for keeping your papers organized. Originally $5.99, the binder is also on sale for $2.

$3 Deals

This section holds a great deal of promise for larger items. You can purchase an entire Staples® Standing Stapler, Half-Strip, Assorted, 20-Sheet Capacity for a song. Originally $10.61, the stapler from Staples is now $3. I cannot think of a family that cannot use a dry erase board. Don’t throw away your money: this Quartet Magnetic Dry-Erase Board, Black, Grey Plastic Frame, 11″ x 14”  was $12.99 and us now $3. Lastly, this Staples® 8-Digit Pocket-Size Calculator is an excellent purchase. Originally $9.96, the calculator will only cost you $3!

$5 Deals

Easily my favourite deal is the Kingston® DataTraveler 101 G2 8GB USB Flash Drive on sale from $12.92 down to just $5. You really cannot get a better deal on a basic flash drive to put in your purse or throw in your back pocket.

$10 Deals

Like the above deal, I think the Kingston® DataTraveler 101 G2 16GB USB Flash Drive is a remarkable deal. Originally $19.95, the flash drive is on sale for $10. It has twice the storage as the $5 one for twice the price.

Check out these deals and more at Staples Canada. Receive free shipping on orders of $45 or more.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Desk Calendars & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 50% Off Desk Calendars & Free ShippingThe new year is in full swing but if you’re still in need of a calendar or know someone who is, then here’s a great deal on desk calendars. While quantities last, you can save 50% on two versions of the Indigo desk calendar at Chapters Indigo. Originally priced at $50, it’s now down to $25.

I have to admit that I would never in a million years pay $50 for this desk calendar or any calendar at all. However, a 50% discount makes it much more appealing, especially since it would look great standing just about anywhere. I could see it being great for an office but also as a mantle piece or any other side table at home.

As you can see on the picture above, it’s available in either sweetheart (white) or easel classic (black) and features a very elegant design. Only the month of January is featured on the image, but rest assured that this calendar contains all of the months for the year 2015.

In case you’re wondering about dimensions, it’s: 6.21″ x 4.5″ and comes with a lovely easel to hold the calendar in place.

Limited Edition Tote

Until February 14th, on Valentine’s Day, you can also get the limited edition All You Need tote for just $14.50 when you spend over $30.  Regularly priced at $25, this tote is 100% cotton and features the words: “Love is all you need” on the front. It’s white all over with a pink handle. In case you’re wondering about the dimensions, it’s quite large and would be great to wear on the shoulder if you’re running light errands or perhaps even for taking to the beach.

You can only get it if you spend over $30, so you can either get two calendars or you could get just one, along with a filler item. The deals section is a great place to  look for more discounts. If you’re planning a wedding, then you’re going to want to check out the 40% discount on select wedding books on  until the end of the day on February 3rd. Select wedding planning books are also just $12.

Shipping

Since shipping is always free on orders over $25, you’re sure to get this calendar shipped at no extra cost as well.

Chapters Indigo: Moleskine iPad 3/4 Cover & Notebook Was $110 | Now $20 (FS on $25)

Posted by on January 18, 2015 at 2:03 PM

Chapters Indigo: Moleskine iPad 3/4 Cover & Notebook Was $110 | Now $20 (FS on $25)

Chapters Indigo has a sale section ripe for the picking. I picked out two lovely Moleskine iPad 3/4 Covers with Volant Notebooks insides that pull double duty. Protect your tablet and have a piece of paper on hand at all times. The following Moleskine iPad covers were $110 each, but are now $20 each.

You save approximately 82% on each case, $90 in fact. The case is designed to hold the iPad 3 or 4. The cover is light and thin, featuring a rubberized internal shell to keep your tablet safe and secure. Moleskine is notorious for their fun colours, so the orange and magenta do not disappoint. I think I would go for the orange.

Now, the case also is a notebook, something you would expect from a company like Moleskine. A Volant Reporter Notebook is included with the case and it can be positioned to the right or to the left of your device. That way, this case accommodates both right and left handed individuals. As my partner is left handed, I appreciate this feature.

Now, for a little price comparing. I found the same covers at Moleskine for $89.95 US. In Canada, I found the cases at Amazon.ca. They have a black on sale for $81.50, the orange for $101.27, and the Magenta on sale for $100.91. Chapters Canada really blows them out of the water, I must say.

These look to be decent cases for a great price. There are not many reviews out there, so I cannot give you any perspective on quality. However, all other colours have already sold out so pick up one of these two while you can.

On a side note, if you are shopping in store, Chapters Indigo Canada is offering a free $10 bonus card for every $40 you spend in-store only through until the 25th January 2015. There is a bunch of fine print (no LEGO, etc), so you will want to visit Chapters Indigo to read about it. I just thought it was worth mentioning, as it is a nice promotion.

Now, these Moleskine covers qualify for free shipping on orders of $25 or more. They are $5 shy, so you may want to scout the sale section for something to add to your cart so you will receive free shipping.

Staples Canada: Business Card Magnets – Now $10 (Save $14)

Posted by on November 11, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Staples Canada: Business Card Magnets   Now $10 (Save $14)

Seriously, if you want office supplies, then you need to hit up this sale at Staples Canada. Right now, they have a great deal on a 100 pack of Business Card Magnets. Originally $24.41, they are now on sale for $10.

Business card magnets are pretty much what they sound like. They are an adhesive magnetic backing that is pre-cut for business card size. You can take your own business cards and adhere them to the magnet strips to create business card magnets instead of plain business cards.

There are several advantages. There is a much higher probability your business card will make it onto the customer’s or client’s fridge. As the fridge is a high traffic area it increases the probability of your card being seen on a regular basis.

The magnets work with pre-existing cards you have made up. That is a huge advantage to this product, rather than ordering custom made business card magnets. Unfortunately, the magnets work best with single sided business cards while most people tend to order double-sided business cards these days.

Only one review was negative out of nine reviews leaving me to believe he received a faulty product. The latest reviewer said:

More cost effective to apply to Business cards rather than buy business cards with magnetic backing(fridge magnets)

As these are on sale for such an amazing price, you are really saving an amazing amount of money and can use this as an advertising opportunity for your small business or company.

Shipping is free on orders of $45 or more. I highly recommend checking out the rest of the Staples Canada business supply sale that is on right now. I found the Staples Metal Mesh Office Manager that was $19.09 on sale for $10. These are incredible useful for keeping your office desk organized.

I also have to mention the deal on this Staples Standing Stapler, Half-Strip with a 20-Sheet Capacity. For only $3, now (originally $9.96) you can buy yourself a full size stapler instead of fighting with one of those mini staplers that only does three pages. I need one of these.

These 3M Reusable Corded Earplugs are also an incredible deal at $2 each when the original price was $12.93. I swear my father used to own about ten pairs of these for work, for shooting, and for sleeping.

Quantities are limited per person on some items.

Costco Canada: $90 Off Neato Signature XV Vacuum – Now $300

Posted by on October 28, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Costco Canada: $90 Off Neato Signature XV Vacuum   Now $300

Save time cleaning with the Neato Signature XV robot vacuum. It’s on sale for just $299 at Costco and was originally priced at $390. Shipping is also absolutely free.

Is your life plagued by never ending dust bunnies? Mine sure is! Two cats, a baby and a hubby will definitely do that to you. Vacuuming once a week just doesn’t cut it anymore, especially since one of my fur babies sheds like a dog, but with our busy schedules, we simply don’t have time to clean the house top to bottom more than once. It’s for this reason that we have been looking into getting a robot vacuum.

In the spirit of saving money, we recently got a Vileda one for less than $50 but as great at it was, especially at keeping the cats entertained for a while, it just wasn’t ideal. A robot vacuum is what we need, especially one praised for having the best suction on the market and this is exactly where the Neato Signature XV comes in.

On top of having the best suction, it’s also one of the smartest robotic vacuums on the market as it features advanced laser guided mapping that allows it to know exactly where it’s going and it will also remember where it has already been! It’s also touted as being great for pet owners and allergy sufferers as it will pick everything up whenever you want.

Admittedly, reviews are mixed but I’m not worried. Even if I happen to get a lemon, I won’t hesitate to return it to Costco as they have a wonderful return policy. From reading the reviews online, it also looks like Neato has wonderful customer service as all the people who complained of getting a lemon of a product were either refunded or sent a new robot vacuum. Plus, don’t forget that for every negative review, there are plenty of others that just didn’t post their positive reviews. Most would rather complain than praise! Costco Canada: $90 Off Neato Signature XV Vacuum   Now $300

It’s also the best price compared to anywhere else as both Amazon and Best Buy have it listed for $447.98. In fact, here’s a snippet of a review from Best Buy’s site as it definitely sums up this little robot very well:

We’ve had the Neato Robotics xv Signature Pro for about 8 months now. We are a multiple dog household, kid, careers — the lot. Vacuuming isn’t high on the list of favourite things to do. This robot vacuums our floors — hardwood and tile, with throw rugs daily and thoroughly. Could I do better myself? Probably/maybe. Faster? Definitely. But as the Neato is working, I’m either doing other things, or I’m not home. Makes for great time management. Love this little bot!!!

Walmart Canada: 8pg Cross Cut Shredder only $35 (Was $59.99)

Posted by on October 24, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Walmart Canada: 8pg Cross Cut Shredder only $35 (Was $59.99)

If you have been holding back on purchasing a proper shredder to shred those precious phone bills, receipts, and credit card bills, then wait no longer! Walmart Canada has an eight page cross cut shredder on sale for only $35 (was $59.99) with free shipping.

It is really hard to do a price comparison when brand name is not given. I assume this is a Walmart brand or maybe just that piece of info has been accidently left off the website. Anyway, I price compared with previous shredder deals we have found and written about on Bargainmoose. Previously, Eva and I have found eight page cross-shredders from Staples Canada on sale from $59.92 down to $39.92. The last deal we found on a shredder was this 11-page shredder for $49.99 at Amazon Canada that Margarita posted. Compared to these previous deals, Walmart’s discount is a solid $5 under Staple’s sale price for the same shredder and Walmart offers free shipping whereas Staples you have to hit a $45 minimum.

The shredder can cross-shred up to eight pages at a time and store the shredding in a 14 litre drum underneath. The machine turns paper into 5/32″ x 1-3/8″ cross cut shreds. There are auto start, stop, and reverse functions. As Margarita mentioned in her post on shredders a while back, crosscut shredders are a security level three. Ideal for private documents but not quite good enough for stuff like medical records (just burn them).

There is only one review on this Shredder at Walmart right now, and the reviewer only had good words for the machine:

I bought this shredder a month ago. It is powerful and really shreds. Highly recommended.

For a house or small office shredder, this should come in quite handy. I often worry about the security of my documents even when I recycle most of my paper. I used to worry even more when we did not have recycling because dumpster divers are nature’s natural recycling program it seems. Even now that I recycle, I would prefer to give them my shredded bills, receipts, and mail rather than a whole or just torn up document.

Hey Moosers, do you own a shredder? If not, why? If so, what documents do you designate for the shredder?

As with all orders from Walmart, this will ship for free to your house.

Staples Canada: La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair | Was $275 Now $125

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Staples Canada: La Z Boy Ellison Managers High Back Center Pivot Chair | Was $275 Now $125

This is one sweet deal! Staples currently has their La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair on sale for $124.54 – it used to cost $274.54! That’s $150 off the retail price! You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

Click here to check out this deal @ Staples.ca now

The La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair looks so comfortable that I wish I was sitting in it right now. Sure, my black leather office chair is very nice, and it’s quite convenient, but you just can’t compete with an office chair that was made by La-Z-Boy! They’re especially known for their recliners (thus, the famous term La-Z-Boy is used commonly, much like the way people will call tissue paper Kleenex, even when it’s a generic brand). Yes, La-Z-Boy has plenty of brand familiarity, and a great reputation, too.

This is a very good deal at Staples. This La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair is a high end product, and I’d be very surprised if these comfortable-looking chairs were still in-stock tomorrow! If you’re looking for the perfect replacement for your office chair, or if you want to spoil yourself and get a luxury piece of furniture without breaking the bank, then I highly suggest that you check out this deal!

If you were to purchase a similar La-Z-Boy Manager’s Chair at Bizchair, it would cost you $501.99. I’ve included a brief review of a similar La-Z-Boy manager’s chair from a satisfied Staples customer below:

Husband was having back problems from sitting in his chair from a certain cheap store. So I went to staples and bought him this. First he complained that I spent this much on a chair, however he absolutely loves it! He’s in his office chair 8-10 hours a day and has not had a single pain since I bought him this chair! 

This deal expires on October 28th, but I’ll be shocked if this La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair remains in stock until then. I hope you all have a great day today!

Future Shop is currently having a one day sale on their Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chairs.

Comfort is very important when you’re sitting at a desk. It can help you be more productive at work – I know it helps me, and I’m sitting in my office chair all day. When you’re arranging your home office, your chair is an important part of the room. After all, it’s what you’re sitting on while you’re reviewing documents, organizing your bills, and browsing the web. If your chair doesn’t make you feel very comfortable, or if you find that you can’t sit in it for very long, then perhaps you should look into purchasing a new one.

This Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chair typically sells for $139.99 at Best Buy, and similar office chairs usually retail for $144.99 at Costco. I wasn’t able to find a review for this Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chair, but it was rated 3 stars out of 5 on the Future Shop website.

If you want to revamp your home office with a new chair, or are looking for a more comfortable chair at work, then you should check out this deal. It’s rare to find this Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chair on sale for such a good price, and you’ll also get free shipping. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

Amazon Canada: Schlage KeyPad Deadbolt Only $99

Posted by on September 22, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Schlage KeyPad Deadbolt Only $99

If you are looking for an alternative to a traditional key for your door, consider a keypad deadbolt. Price may have stopped you before with regular prices being from $150 – $250, but Amazon has the Schlage BE365 Plymouth keypad deadbolt on sale for a straight $100 right now.

I have a keypad on my front door and it is great. This way I don’t always have to carry keys or open my garage for access to my house. It will also be great when my kids are old enough to be home alone and can get into the house without having to take a key to school and potentially lose it. I don’t know how many keys I lost when I was kid, but I know my parents were a little dumbfounded by it. It also makes sure your key doesn’t get into the wrong hands.

What this is also great for is if you need someone to watch your house while you are away, feed your pet or if you rent your house or property. You can change the code as often as you like after the person has done their service. If you have a different boyfriend each month, this might be a great way to not give away your key, but keep him out once you’ve decided he’s not the one.

This keypad deadbolt has a regular price of $238 and while I didn’t find that exact model selling in Canada, I found it for around $150 selling in the U.S. Similar models selling in Canada also sold for around $150, so the regular price might be a touch inflated. Either way, it is still a great deal. While this keypad deadbolt from Home Depot doesn’t list the product number, it looks exactly the same and sells for $164. This one from Lowes is also similar with a selling price of $159.99.

Only certain colours are available for $99.99 from Amazon. These are: aged bronze, satin chrome, antique brass and satin nickel.

If that exact model doesn’t float your boat, there are a few other models also on sale for $99.99 or $109.99.

The reviews are fantastic for this item as well:

Quality is first rate with heavy castings, durable finish and a dead bolt that extends 1/4″ further than the Weiser unit it replaced.

Shipping is free on this item as it beats the $25 minimum for free shipping.

A major plus is that it will cut through staples. This means that you won’t have to spend extra time unstapling everything or ripping the staple out. You can just place the stapled document in and that’s it!

The handle is also very useful for both a home and work setting as the shredder could easily be transported room to room. In the case of the former, however, it definitely wouldn’t be suitable for heavy usage among numerous employees in a large office. Although it specifically suggest usage by just one person, this shredder could be placed in a hallway to share between a couple of people.

Review

Out of 10 reviews on Amazon’s site, this shredder has gathered a general consensus of 4.2 stars out of 5 and here’s what on reviewer had to say about it:

Powerful, not too loud… very heavy duty cutter blades. I have been loving my Fellowes Powershred. It cross cuts like a dream for me… and does not cut out or overheat. I use it constantly until the large bin is full of the fine shreds. It even cuts up stapled papers and those thin cardboard like sheets, that come inside some packaging of various products etc.

Price Comparison

Future Shop has this same shredder for $99.99.

Shipping

This shredder also qualifies for free shipping as Amazon ships most orders over $25 for free.

The top level of the desk easily fits a large monitor, and the bottom features a pull-out keyboard drawer. And the best part is that it requires no tools to put together! I’m not very handy, and personally don’t enjoy putting furniture together, so I love that you don’t need any tools for this desk.
