1 Free Year Of Equifax Premier If You Shopped @ Home Depot With A Credit Card Since April ($240 Value)

Posted by on September 9, 2014 at 2:00 PM

1 Free Year Of Equifax Premier If You Shopped @ Home Depot With A Credit Card Since April ($240 Value)

Two questions: have you shopped at Home Depot since April of this year? And did you use a credit card? Then you can request a free year of Equifax right now.

Ramping up to potentially be one of the biggest data breaches of history, Home Depot has recently confirmed that their data has indeed been hacked and, in an attempt to rectify the situation, is offering full support and a free year of Equifax Premier. Even if you don’t think that your information has been compromised, I definitely suggest taking advantage of this Equifax Premier freebie as it’s a service that would otherwise cost $19.95 per month for a total of $239.40 annually. To get it, you need to call Equifax at 866-205-0679 (or 866-466-9577 for French) and you will then be given an Equifax promo code to redeem for your free annual subscription.

The long list of benefits from the Equifax Premier plan includes but is not limited to:

  • Around the clock credit monitoring for suspicious charges
  • Up to 50,000 of identity theft insurance
  • WebDetect: receive an alert if your information (i.e. SIN or credit number) is used online
  • Unlimited access to Equifax credit report & credit score

I have to admit that I’m definitely surprised that this Equifax plan includes unlimited access to credit reports and credit scores, especially since the Equifax Advantage plan only includes 4 per year and even then, it’s restricted to just one per quarter. For this benefit alone, I plan on calling Equifax as I have been one of the ones to have shopped at Home Depot since April and used a credit card.

This data breach is particularly important for online shoppers as it appears that online payments were the most targeted as chip-and-pin credit cards are much less vulnerable to the data theft. In any case, it would definitely be a good idea to not only take a couple of minutes to get the free annual subscription to Equifax Premier, but to also have a look at all of your credit card statements since April to make sure that there are no fraudulent charges.

If you see any suspicious transactions, then make sure to sort those out immediately with your bank. Keep in mind that if you need assistance sorting any suspicious transactions, then Home Depot has partnered with AllClear ID to help you, but be careful of any phishing or phone call scams offering this service for a fee as it’s absolutely free.

Moosers, how many of you have shopped at Home Depot since April? Do you plan on taking advantage of this freebie?

Home Depot Canada: Free September Workshop

Posted by on August 30, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Home Depot Canada: Free September Workshop

Summer has pretty much come to an end and the kids are going back to school. That also means that after school activities are starting up, and there will be less time to do things as a family due to other activities. Home Depot realizes this and instead of cutting out all of their free monthly workshops for the year, they have just cut back.

For the month of September, they will be offering just one free workshop for families, but it is a good one. Sign up for free to take this workshop to learn how to build a bird house.

When and Who is this workshop for?

This workshop will be held on Saturday September 13th at 10am only. It will be available for all kids ages four years old to 12 years old, will be approximately two hours in length, and is a very fun and absolutely free activity to do. One parent must accompany the child to the workshop. Since there is only one in the month of September when they normally host about four of them, I suspect it will fill up fast. Click on the link above and pre-register your spot for your child to make sure you both get a spot to do this fun family activity. Since it is for a parent and child, it is a very good bonding experience.

What is the free Workshop?

In this free workshop, you will learn how to build a bird house for your yard. Children will be able to use a hammer and some glue to build their very own birdhouse absolutely free. All of the supplies will be ready and waiting for you, so you don’t need to bring anything. The example on the picture above is decorated with The Wizard of Oz which is kind of fun, but your child will be able to personalize their birdhouse with their own flare and style.

As I mentioned above, these workshops are very popular because not only are they free, they are a lot of fun as well. It is best to sign up early to ensure you get your spot.  If the location nearest you is already full, you can always choose another one.

Home Depot Canada: Free August Workshops

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Home Depot Canada: Free August Workshops

I can’t believe we are already in the month of August!  With a new month comes a new list of free Home Depot workshops for people young and old to take advantage of. This month, there are three different workshops to choose from, including one for kids.  Like I mentioned, all of them are free to attend and participate in, and they are a great learning activity and fun social time to meet other people with the same interests.

It seems as though there are less workshops in the summer months compared to the colder months.  I guess it must be because a lot of families are camping or traveling, and visiting friends and family. The three that they are offering this month, however, are all great!

Build a mini-crate pencil holder August 9th

  • At this workshop, kids will learn how to build a mini-crate pencil holder using a hammer and glue.  It is geared for kids ages four years old and up and all children must be accompanied by a parent.  It starts at 10am and it will run for two hours. This is a great activity for Mom or Dad to bond with their child at, and have fun at the same time.

Five simple projects to enhance your bathroom August 16th

  • This workshop starts at 10am and will last one hour. You will learn so many bathroom tips in this workshop.  Learn how to choose the ideal faucet to meet your bathroom needs, how to repair drywall, replace grout and ceramic wall tiles, how to choose lights that are appropriate for your bathroom space and much more.  A lot of the things you will learn in this workshop can be applied to other areas of your home such as the kitchen or laundry room as well, so it is a great free workshop to attend.

Painting touch ups and techniques August 24th

  • They actually offered this workshop last month as well. It will start at 1pm and last for just an hour.  It will teach you a variety of useful information to do with paint touch-ups and techniques.  You will learn how to paint ceilings, walls, and trim, you will learn how to prepare walls and other interior surfaces for paint, and many more tips and tricks.

All of these workshops are a great opportunity to build up those home improvement and DIY skills.  Some of them fill up pretty fast, so the best thing to do is book your spot ahead of time.

WagJag Canada: $30 for 6 Hampton Bay Solar LED Lights (a $79 Value)

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 11:00 PM

WagJag Canada: $30 for 6 Hampton Bay Solar LED Lights (a $79 Value)

A back and front yard must at our house are solar lights.  I love the look of them lit up at light and they are basically no maintenance after you buy them because the charge all day in the sun.  They can get quite pricey though so you need to look for a good deal.  I found a spectacular deal at WagJag Canada  for a pack of solar LED lights.  Get a pack of six for just $30 when the regular cost is $79.

If you are unfamiliar with the brand name Hampton Bay, they are one of the best brands for indoor or outdoor lighting.  Because they are so good, they can be a bit expensive.  This brand  can be found in Home Depot (which is where we actually got our Hampton Bay LED solar lights) and a few other stores.

With this deal, you will get the six pack of LED solar lights in black and they have the stakes included to attach to the ground.  Each LED stake light measures 5.13 x 19 in and they light up at dusk so can last for up to 8 hours.  They are a great addition to any garden or walkway.

The cost of shipping is $12 extra but that is a fraction of the cost you will be saving at 62% off the regular price. The delivery will take approximately 4-6 weeks.

I wanted to show you a little price comparison for this deal.  I found the Hampton Bay solar lights at Home Depot Canada in a 10 pack that are almost identical.  They are priced at $79.98. Even though you get a few more, you would still be getting a far better deal with the Wagjag pack of six.  You would also get charged shipping at Home Depot.

I also found a similar set at Canadian Tire that are a no name brand and come in a pack of four.  They are $59.99 and again, you would be paying extra for shipping.  Those ones are double the cost of the Wagjag ones and they are not even a great brand or have as many in the box!

I finally found similar ones again at Walmart Canada that only had four in a pack and they were priced at $69.98. Even though Walmart offers free shipping on theirs, the WagJag deal still surpasses this one as well.

Home Depot Canada: Up to 64% Off Lanterns & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 8, 2014 at 11:30 PM

Home Depot Canada: Up to 64% Off Lanterns & Free Shipping

Home Depot is selling a selection of post top lights and wall mount lanterns for up to 64% off their original price.

I have always wanted to have my very own lantern. It probably stems from my childhood love of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series wherein the lamppost plays an integral role in Lucy finding her way home. I find lampposts whimsical, romantic, and stalwart. You do not find many lampposts in people’s yards these days, but I would have one if I had my own land. I might even have two. I was delighted to see that Home Depot is still selling tops for them.

The Iron Patina with Curved Glass Post Top Lantern is a rustic looking top that fits right into my storybook land of Lantern Waste with a lone light guiding a little girl back to the wardrobe from whence she came. The top is also inexpensive for anyone wanting to get into the lamppost business: originally $72.94, the top is now on sale for $39.99. You can buy the same Curved Glass Post Top Lantern in Pine Green instead of black for $39.99 as well, originally $72.94.

This next lamppost top has a bit more charm and will have all the local squirrels chattering with jealousy. The Acorn Glass Post Top Light in Rust Patina has a whimsical fantasy all its own. Originally $187, the top is now on sale for $81.28.  I love the thick bubble glass used for the Acorn post top, as it looks more durable than the two tops above.

If you are lacking a post, you can always mount a lantern outside your house on the wall. This Clear and Tea Glass Wall Lantern – Small has a modern Asian inspired appearance. The simple black frame and clear glass panels will match with almost any home. Originally $145, the lamp is on sale for $52.08.

Lastly, this Bronzed Crowned Wall Light – Medium looks an awful lot like an acorn itself and certainly has that old world charm. I think the acorn lamppost top and this acorn wall light would look lovely together. Originally $207, this wall light is now on sale for $77.40.

All these products qualify for free shipping from Home Depot Canada, which is a nice bonus on top of their sale prices. I know that we rarely think of lighting during the summer, but these would make lovely lights for the coming fall.

Home Depot Canada: RYOBI ONE+ 5 In. Random Orbit Sander (18V) only $12

Posted by on July 3, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Home Depot Canada: RYOBI ONE+ 5 In. Random Orbit Sander (18V) only $12

If you or your husband have recently discovered the wonder of the RYOBI ONE+ line of tools then you may want to check out this RYOBI ONE+ 5 In. Random Orbit Sander for only $12!

We recently inherited a RYOBI ONE+ grass trimmer and blower and although we knew about this line of tools we never really considered investing in them.  Mainly because we own a gas powered trimmer and my husband has always leaned towards DeWalt tools.

However, with our recent acquisition we have decided to sell the gas powered trimmer for three reasons: it’s overkill for the size of property we have, it’s very loud and heavy.  Plus, with a lighter battery operated one I can take over the trim work and frankly I am ok with that.

Although my husband never considered the RYOBI ONE+ line before, he has been doing more and more research on the different tools and accessories they offer, because any Ryobi 18V Tool fits any Ryobi 18V battery and that means less clutter on his work table.

Now my husband may end up using this tool, but this one is really for me. I like to find old furniture and refinish it. I know to some of you that may sound like a huge undertaking and a few years ago I would have agreed. However, I discovered the wonders of chalk paint and it opened up a whole new world for me! Although you don’t have to strip or prep the furniture before using chalk paint, I like to distress my projects and this orbit sander could really come in handy with some of the larger pieces.

Ships for FREE! As an added bonus, this item ships for free under Home Depot’s Free Parcel Shipping category. This item is available online only so unfortunately you will have to patient for it to arrive.

Home Depot: Sunjoy Fiji Bar Set (Now $460, Was $549)

Posted by on June 23, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Home Depot: Sunjoy Fiji Bar Set (Now $460, Was $549)

Create a retro backyard oasis with a Sunjoy Fiji Bar Set from Home Depot Canada, now only $460 (reg $549). Available online only.

Home Depot offers one item each day in what they call the “Hammer Drop”.  Each item is only available for 1 day and only while quantities last. Today’s Hammer Drop item is a Sunjoy Fiji Bar Set, which features two stools, built in wine glass hangers and two behind the bar shelves, as well as weather resistant fabric.

My neighbours bought this same set last year when they installed their pool. I thought it was a fun little touch of whimsy but wasn’t too sure really how much use it would get. I noticed that at each BBQ or get together they did in fact put it to good use. Not just for beverage serving but also as a spot for condiments and toppings on the bar top, as well as for storing outdoor plates, utensils and napkins in compact plastic bins behind the bar on the shelves. This way the basics were at their fingertips. They also added plastic beverage dispensers to the bar top for guests to self-serve, versatile for both children and adult beverages. On one occasion, for a surprise 40th, the tiki bar was manned to serve as a traditional bar. So, as you can see this bar set can really be put to good use.

I shopped around to see if I could find a better price on this item, but it appears as though it’s only available at Home Depot. However what I did find is that compared to other bar sets this item truly is a steal. For example:

Shipping is only $39 for this item. However, the expected delivery date for me is a bit of a disappointment at 3-4 weeks.

Home Depot Canada: Rebate on Interior or Exterior Paint, Primer, Stain or Restore ® Deck Cover

Posted by on June 19, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Home Depot Canada: Rebate on Interior or Exterior Paint, Primer, Stain or Restore ® Deck Cover

If you are looking to stain or paint in and around the house, now is a great time to visit your local Home Depot Canada store! Receive a $7 online rebate when you purchase a 3.78L can or a $25 online rebate when you purchase a 18.9L pail. This offer is valid on BEHR or CIL interior or exterior paint, primer or stain, on 3.78L cans of Thompson’s WaterSeal waterproofing and on 3.43L cans of Rust-oleum Restore deck cover.

My husband and I have had a backyard project in the works now well over a year. We have an attached garage but it’s small and although we started out using it as a spot to park one of our vehicles it has slowly been taken over by children’s bikes and play equipment, various lawn and home maintenance supplies but more recently as our makeshift home gym. With the later being the most exciting, we decided it was time we bought or built a shed for our backyard and regain that valuable space.

For a few years we shopped around at the big box stores for a ready-made shed, but nothing caught our eye. Plus, I am pretty firm on the vision for our home and although I was tempted to settle on a few occasions I am so very glad I waited! A local highschool teacher shared with us a possibility that not too many people are either aware of or consider, or perhaps we are just lucky to have this opportunity in our city. Did you know that some high schools offer woodshop services to the public for just the cost of materials?! Plus, the high schools (at least in our area) have an agreement with a local building store, which gives them a discount on materials and the high schools pass that discount onto the clients. Needless to say there can be a wait list depending on the project you have in mind.

My husband and I jumped at the opportunity and we were contacted this past fall to say we were at the top of the list if we wanted to proceed. Am I ever glad we decided to wait! For about the same price as a large big box shed we now have a custom, craftsman style, permanent shed in our backyard. It is larger than we had originally anticipated, so we were cringing at the extra costs that weren’t included in the overall project (cement, gravel, shingles, plexi glass, exterior paint) but with this rebate from Home Depot, we will save a little money and we can customize the colours to blend with our home and backyard palette, this makes me extremely happy!

Home Depot Canada: Makita 3 Pocket Pouch Only $16 + Free Shipping (Was $35)

Posted by on June 18, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Home Depot Canada: Makita 3 Pocket Pouch Only $16 + Free Shipping (Was $35)

Pick up this handy Makita Three Pocket Fixings Pouch from The Home Depot Canada for only $15.95 with free shipping, originally $34.95.

This three-pocket pouch is perfect for both professions and those doing upkeep around the house. The three deep pockets fit nails, screws, bolts, fasteners, fixings, and miscellaneous tools like small measuring tapes or a pencil and eraser. The material on these pouches is super thick: it is made to stand the wear and tear of professional use and will most certainly stand up to the test of time.

The belt also features two long tool slots that fit screwdrivers, hammers, knives, pliers and other hand tools. There is a metal clip, which accepts standard size tape measures. This case has a bonus feature i am not use to on these pouches: a rubber handle for ease of transportation. Now, usually you would just slip this pouch system onto your belt and away you go. However, if you don’t want to carry this pouch with you at all times, then the carrying handle is lets you easily transport the pouch with you without needing to attach it to your belt.

This tool belt/pouch system will fit on most standard sized belts. I suggest a good thick leather belt that can handle the weight of whatever you load your belt up with. My father is a journeyman carpenter so I am very familiar with these pouches; I have even worn one myself.

The pouch has a great review from one happy customer:

My husband has had his Makita work belt for over 5 years and has only had to replace the pockets twice in that time. He has mentioned over and over again that this pocket is amazing and hopes they will still be available the next time they need to be replaced.

Even if you are not a carpenter, these pouches are very useful. If you are doing odd jobs around the house or hanging pictures, you can have your tape measure, your hammer, and your nails all within arm’s reach without having to search for where you put one of them down. Usually I dump an eraser and pencil into one of the pouches for marking my distances. This could also be used as a gardening pouch: a couple hand tools can go into the tool slots and seeds can go in your pouches.

Right now Home Depot is offering free shipping on most items that weight under 100 lbs and this pouch qualifies.

2x Hdmi Cable Only $3.16 In-Store @ Home Depot!

Posted by on June 8, 2014 at 1:00 PM

2x Hdmi Cable Only $3.16 In Store @ Home Depot!

This is a great in-store deal if you are looking for some new HDMI cables and happen to be heading out to Home Depot this weekend. They are selling a 2 pack of the 6 foot Hdmi Cable Version 1.4 with Adapter for only $3.16! That’s a super low price!

As they say with this type of deal, your mileage may vary. This means that even though their online stock checker may state that there’s availability at certain locations, it could be that you arrive in-store to find none left. Either the Home Depot stock checker could be out-of-date, or other people have purchased the deal in the time it’s taken you to travel there. So, I’m not recommending you take an hour-long drive to Home Depot just to pick up this deal, but check the stock and decide if you’d needed to go to Home Depot anyway.

For example, I tried a random postal code and I could see stock available in London SW, North London, Bracebridge, Woodstock, Kitchener, Cambridge, Whitby North. That’s just an example though; pop your local store in to the page above and see if there are any available near you.

As for a price comparison, it’s a bit like comparing oranges and apples, as there are so many different brands of HDMI cable to compare. For one basic 6 foot HDMI cable on Futureshop, you’d be paying around $7. SO for HALF that price, you’re getting DOUBLE the cables at Home Depot!

Many devices in our homes now use HDMI cables, from our TVs to our Playstations. Sometimes I find that it is useful to have a spare cable from time to time, to use in times of need. For example, I had a video on my laptop… but wanted to watch it on the big 40” screen in the living room. I had to dig down the back of the furniture to get the HDMI cable out of the Playstation, in order to use it on the laptop. It would have been handy to have a spare!

Let us know in the comments below if you manage to pick up this bargain. (Thanks to Eric)

Home Depot Canada Free Workshops In June

This weekend marks the start of a new month and a couple of new workshops offered for free at Home Depot locations across Canada. The workshops vary each month, but they offer a fun environment for men and women to learn do it yourself type things together.

Last month, they were offering just three workshops, but this month they are offering four of them. Check out one or all of them.

Build a Riding Lawn Mower June 14th

  • This is a two hour workshop that is absolutely free for kids ages four to twelve years old. It starts at 10am and kids will learn how to build a riding lawn mower using a hammer and glue.  One parent must attend with their child and all supplies will be provided for you.

Pinterest Inspired: Build an Outdoor Occasional Table June 18th

  • This one hour workshop starts at 7pm and you will learn the basic steps on how to build a Pinterest inspired outdoor occasional table. You will learn how to cut wood with a circular saw, do fastening with a  brad nailer, and use various other tools. This is great for the “do it yourself-er” person that wants to build some things for their home.

Building a Retaining Wall June 21st

  • You will learn a few different things in this one hour workshop.  You will learn the steps and tools for building a retaining wall, from preparing the trench with road base and a paver sand to securing the top layer of blocks with construction adhesive.  I love the look of a retaining wall for gardens, so I will be signing my husband up for this one for sure!

Paint your Homes Exterior June 29th

  • Now this may sound easy, but you can tell the homes that have had bad paint jobs as soon as you drive by them!  This one hour workshop will teach you how to stain and paint your house, from mouldings to doorways and trim.  Painting your house is not something you want to just try to do without any knowledge whatsoever.  This is a great way to learn to do it yourself the proper way to save some money

Keep in mind all of the workshops are free, so depending on the location, they can fill up fast.  You may be able to drop in, but the best way to make sure you get in is to register for the ones you want to free of charge.
