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 Canada: Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chair | Was $120 Now $50 (EXPIRED)

Future Shop is currently having a one day sale on their Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chairs. Previously retailing for $119.99, you can now pick up one of these Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chairs for $49.99. You’ll also qualify for free shipping with your order!

The Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chair looks quite comfortable. With a hydraulic lift, polyurethane seating, and a mesh lining, this can help provide you with the comfort that you need while you’re working in your office at home or at the workplace!

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.

Amazon Canada: Fellowes PowerShred Shredder Only $50

Posted by on September 3, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Fellowes PowerShred Shredder Only $50

Do you find yourself manually destroying a lot of documents? Simplify your life with the Fellowes 3103202 Powershred shedder and save a mighty buck at the same time. Originally priced at $139.99, you can now get it for 64% off at just $49.99. Hurry as this deal could expire at any moment.

Features

  • Shreds up to 11 pages simultaneously
  • Unit will lock if it’s lifted from the wastebasket
  • 9″-wide paper entry
  • Equipped with a handle for easy transportation
  • 16 FPM speed (feet per minute)

When it comes to choosing a shredder, it all really depends on the cut that you need. In general, there are four cuts available on the market and the smaller the cut, the better it is. Amazon’s description of them all is the most explanatory:

Amazon Canada: Fellowes PowerShred Shredder Only $50

The Fellowes PowerShred shredder falls into the level 3 category, that of cross-cut and really, if you’re looking for a shredder for either home or office use, then that is all your really need. 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.

Ikea Canada: 25% Off Shipping

Posted by on September 15, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Ikea Canada: 25% Off Shipping

If you haven’t ordered from Ikea before because the shipping is too much, you might change your mind for now. Ikea has a deal on right now with 25% off shipping.

I know friends who live in my area who make going to Ikea a special trip. And it is. I love spending half a day walking through their store. What I don’t love is spending the gas to get there or wasting the time, when I need something soon-ish. If you know what you want and just want it brought to your home, this Ikea sale is a good one.

Coincidentally, there is also a sale on Pax wardrobes, which are amazing closet systems and make me swoon. Pax wardrobes and all Komplement interiors are 15% off.

Ikea says the shipping discount will automatically be applied when you calculate shipping. When I calculated the shipping to my house on a Pax wardrobe, it totalled $149, so I’m going to assume it was $200 before the shipping discount. That’s a $50 savings and although it still means spending $150 to get whatever item to my house, if I don’t have a truck, I would need it shipped anyway. Also, by the time I pay for gas, the shipping cost is not really that much more. Smaller items will have cheaper shipping, which will still be 25% off.
