Best Buy Canada: $60 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $90

Posted by on January 18, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: $60 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $90

Mmmmm general tao… why go to a restaurant when you can make your own? But you’re going to need a good knife and if you don’t already have one, then I found a great deal on the Cuisinart 15-pc knife block set at Best Buy. Originally priced at $149.99, you can now save $60 and get it for just $89.99.

Using a picture of delicious-looking General Tao when talking about a knife block set may seem like an odd choice but fact of the matter is that you need a good knife when handling meat. I’m not the one who handle the deboning and slicing chore or meat handling in my household, but every time my hubby does it, he makes sure to sharpen his knife beforehand!

The Cuisinart 15-pc knife block set comes with:

  • 8″ chef’s knife
  • 8″ bread knife
  • 5.5″ serrated utility knife
  • 5″ Santoku knife
  • 3.5″ pairing knife
  • Six 4.5″ steak knives
  • Sharpening steel
  • Shears (scissors)
  • Knife block

Just writing about this knife block set is making me want to get it for myself because the blade is made from high-carbon stainless steel and the handle is ergonomically designed. My hubby is a leftie, while I’m a rightie, so it would definitely make things easier for him.

Personally, I would ditch the knife block, however. I have heard it being mentioned numerous times on television daytime shows like The Doctors and Dr. Oz that these are the perfect habitat for bacteria. Perhaps it would be okay to use at first but it should definitely be discontinued after a couple of months.

Price comparing, I found this same knife block set retailing for its full price of $189.99 at Sears.

To get back to the topic of General Tao, if you have never made it yourself, it’s super easy and I definitely recommend General Tsao’s chicken recipe available on All Recipes. If you like cooking completely from scratch, then it’s the perfect recipe to follow or you could just do what I do and buy a bottle of General Tao sauce. Once your chicken is cooked, you simply douse it in the sauce and voila — restaurant quality General Tao! Best Buy Canada: $60 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $90

Shipping Best ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this knife block set shipped to you at no extra cost.

The only reviewer that didn’t give it a perfect rating stated that they didn’t know how it was as it was a gift. Here’s what another reviewer had to say:

Bought these towels for our new motorhome and I was so impressed I ordered another set for our ensuite.

My household has been due for new towels for some time now, so I’ll definitely be picking up a couple of these towels in either ivory, carbon or primrose. I’m particularly excited by the fact that according to the description, they’re soft to the touch and have a luxurious feel. Just make sure to not wash them with any products containing benzoil peroxide to avoid spotting or bleaching.

Shipping is free on orders over $99.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 60% Off iHome iD48 iPhone, iPod & iPad Portable Stereo System – Was $99 | Now $40

Posted by on January 3, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: 60% Off iHome iD48 iPhone, iPod & iPad Portable Stereo System   Was $99 | Now $40

While quantities last, you can pick up an iHome iD48 portable rechargeable stereo system for Apple products for just $39.60. It originally retailed for $99. Shipping will also be free as Chapters Indigo ships all orders over $25 for free.

This is the cheapest price that we have ever seen for the iHome iD48. Back on Cyber Monday, it was reduced to $49 from $99 ($50 discount) and even then, it was a fantastic deal. Of course, now it’s even better, so if you have been in the market for a portable stereo system for your Apple product, then now would be a good time to snag one.

This stereo system only works for: iPhones, iPads and iPods. It also features SRS TruBass circuitry and Reason 8 sound technology for an enhanced auditory experience.

The battery is rechargeable, so you won’t have to worry about buying or looking around for batteries. When the charge is low, you can just plug it in, while continuing to enjoy your music.

If you’re looking to use the iHome iD48 stereo system with an iPad, then you will be happy to know that it has a landscape mode. This means that you could just lay your tablet sideways to watch a movie or perhaps play music videos online.

Personally, I have an iPhone and I’m definitely considering picking up one of these considering the major price drop. Price comparing, I found this same stereo system going for $74.77 at Amazon.ca and approximately $58.54 on eBay.

There are no reviews on Chapters’ site but on Amazon, there are two reviewers that each gave this stereo system 5/5 stars. Both reviewers had a lot to say about it, so here are small snippets of the lengthy reviews:

This is one if the better sounds systems that iHome has put out. It has great sound because it has both active and passive speakers (two of each).

And here’s another:

iHome is a trusted manufacturer so I was not concerned about quality – it is well built and seems sturdy enough to handle transporting, as it is portable and able to work on its rechargeable battery. It is low profile and not as wide as the Bose. Its speakers are smaller.

Keep in mind that the iHome iD48 stereo system is only available online at Chapters Indigo’s site and you won’t be able to get it in-stores.

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Posted by on January 2, 2015 at 8:00 PM

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Are you one of the lucky ones to have received a candle or two for Christmas? Candles certainly make for popular Christmas gifts, especially when not knowing what to get someone. Instead of throwing away the container once the candle is burnt out, repurpose it into something more useful with these 6 ideas.

1. Organizational Containers

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

The easiest way to upcycle candle jar is by cleaning out the wax to then use them as organizational containers for anything you want. You can place q-tips, cotton balls, nail polish bottles, or anything else. Check out lovekisses99’s YouTube channel for tips on how best to remove the wax.

2. Monogrammed Gold Containers

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Take it a step further by personalizing your candle jar. After completing the first idea of cleaning it out, you can add a monogram as per Allison Anderson‘s instructions. Glue a crystal knobon to the lid for a touch of glamour and to facilitate using the jar. You could even use it as a small jewellery container.

3. Upcycled Candle Jars

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Candle jars often come in very generic packaging filled with the company’s branding and other tacky-looking labels, so  why not repurpose candle jars into even prettier looking candle jars? Visit Lots of DIY for a series of informative pictures on how to make your jars more decorative-looking. There are no formal instructions but all you need to do is spray on a bit of gold paint. Plus, you can write anything you want on the label, like “Hello Winter” instead of “Hello Fall”.

4. Glitter Vases

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Similarly to the upcycled candle jar ideas covered previously, you can also turn your candle jars into cute little glitter vases. The Sweetest Occasion has step-by-step instructions on how to do just that with the help of glitter, modpodge and a couple of other handy tools. Once you’re done, add a few fake flowers for a glam decorative piece.

5. Nail Polish Remover Container

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Love those nail polish remover containers where all you need to do is dip your finger in to remove the nail polish? These can be quite costly and yet they’re super easy to make. Check out the set of images posted by Gee Collins at Bella Shoot to find out how to create your very own nail polish removing container.

6. Budget Jars

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

In her article on “How To Chunk Down Your Debt“, Heather Robinson mentioned Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s jar system for better money management. You can read all about it in her article but the general essence of the jar system is that you can’t spend money that you don’t have. Use candle containers to create budgetary jars for either yourself or even your kids as a chore and allowance system as detailed on  With Swallows Wings blog.

(Save 75%) Glade 4 Pack Holiday Candles Only $3 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 2, 2015 at 3:36 PM

(Save 75%) Glade 4 Pack Holiday Candles Only $3 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

Walmart has their holiday scented Glade Candles on clearance today. They were $12 earlier this season but now are discounted down to $2.99. With free shipping and no minimum you can have these delivered to your door easy as 1, 2, 3.

The smell of the holidays is still lingering in my house. Luckily, unlike the smell of teenage boys or wet boots, the holidays bring all kinds of good smells into my house. The smells of the holidays are distinct and delicious. Grab this deal and you can either stock up for next year or keep that yummy smell from the holidays going just a little longer. Use that smell to help you beat the January winter blues.

For this deal, that is less than $1 per candle for a candle that is bigger than a votive. Each set includes 4 jar candles that each are in their own glass jar. I much prefer buying smaller candles like these in a glass jar so I do not have to worry about wax dripping everywhere. This size is perfect to put on the bathroom counter next to your sink, for when your bathroom needs freshening. In my house thanks mostly to my husband, the bathroom needs freshened a lot. According to Glade’s website this size candle should burn for about 28 hours.

First up is the Glade Holiday Candle 4-pack in Apple Cinnamon. Apple Cinnamon is a scent that I like having around much longer than the November and December holiday period. I usually start busting out apple cinnamon scented candles and air fresheners in September and can still be found using them up until about February or March. March or so, I start switching to more springtime scents. You still have a good run on these candles before they are really starting to be out of season. Plus Apple Cinnamon is just a pleasing homey scent that makes any house smell lovely.

The other option for sale is the Glade Holiday Candle 4 pack- Mixed. The pack includes one of each of the following.

  • Apple Cinnamon Cheer
  • Sparkling Spruce
  • Gingerbread Jingle
  • Holiday Citrus Medley

Walmart does not list the scents out on their website for the mixed pack but I compared it on Glade’s website yet again. As this is a Walmart exclusive pack, I was able to locate the matching holiday scents based on the icons on the package on Glade’s site. That citrus one might be iffy but it seems to be the best match when comparing it to this year’s selection of holiday scents. If it were me, I would burn the Apple Cinnamon and Citrus Medley candles now and keep the Spruce and Gingerbread for next holiday. It will be just like opening up a Christmas present next holiday season when you unwrap these candles.

Bargainmoosers, how long do you keep the holiday scents burning after the holiday? Do you consider Apple Cinnamon a Christmas scent or an all fall, winter, or even year round scent?

Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set – Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Posted by on November 29, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set   Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Black Friday got you worn out? Catch some much needed z’s on a brand new mattress! The Sealy Posturepedic Diaz queen mattress set is $250 off at Costco. You can get it for just $549.99 instead of its original price of $799.99. Shipping is also absolutely free! This set comes with both the mattress and the box spring.

Normally, I wouldn’t blog about a mattress that can be bought online because it can be difficult to know if you will be happy with it once it arrives but in this case, I couldn’t pass up mentioning this steal of a deal to you Moosers.

For any of you looking for a great deal on a mattress, the Diaz mattress is definitely worth buying. Available in a queen size, it features:

  • 700 coils
  • 1″ Proback stabilizer pad
  • 0.5″ Proback CoreSupport Center with PostureGel memory foam
  • Comfortable quilted layers

According to the description, the coils on this mattress also offer 20% more support than other mattresses as they are reinforced with titanium alloy.

This mattress is a memory foam one but it’s nonetheless of the firm variety, which is the recommendation. Firm mattresses are recommended because they provide better body alignment. If you currently sleep on a soft mattress and experience constant fatigue, headaches and plenty of other unpleasant symptons, it might be worth switching mattresses to a firm one to see if matters improve. If they don’t, do make sure to consult with a doctor of course! Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set   Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Looking around, I couldn’t find this exact model of mattress anywhere else. However, I did find the Sealy Posturepedic Aperitivo Eurotep sleep set on sale right now until the end of the Black Friday week-end for $699.99 (reg. $1,399.99) and the description is exactly the same as that of the Diaz one. Both have the same number of coils, same Proback stabilizer pad, same quilting, etc.

As I already mentioned shipping is free, but keep in mind that if when your mattress arrives, you don’t like it for whatever reason, you will need to find a way to transport it back to your nearest Costco store. However, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like it, so no worries there!

Future Shop Canada After Hours Sale: Up To 75% Off Cookware Sets, Used Games, Cameras, TVs & More! (EXPIRED)

Don’t have plans on this fine Saturday night? Then you’re in luck, because Future Shop’s After Hours Sale just started and during the next couple of hours, you can score plenty of amazing deals on TVs, laptops, cookware sets, used games and much more. This is a limited time sale and is set to end on Sunday morning at 10am ET.

If you’re in the market for a cookware set, then I spotted the T-Fal Easy Strain 10-pc cookware set on sale for just $99.99. Originally priced as high as $399.99, which puts it at 75% off, it comes with the following 10 pieces: 20cm fry pan, 24cm fry pan, 14cm sauce pan, 18cm sauce pan, 20cm sauce pan and 24cm Dutch oven lids. Made of stainless steel, the T-Fal Easy Strain cookware set features a 3mm gauge body that provides even heat distribution and is oven safe to up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s dishwasher safe and unlike a lot of cookware set, comes with glass lids. On Amazon, this same cookware set is currently going for $169.99.

The T-Fal Actifry 2-in-1 deep fryer is also on sale for $249.99 (reg. $329.99). With 1400 watts, it can cook various combination of foods simultaneously like: friends & vegetables, meat & fish, etc. Plus, it also has 4 programs depending on whether you’re cooking: meat, fish, poultry or desserts. That dessert feature is one that got me particularly excited because ever since trying a deep fried chocolate bar at a fish and chips place near my house, that’s all I have been craving for dessert. It also comes with a recipe book and a special measuring spoon. On Amazon, this same deep fryer is on sale for $270 from a $400 regular price.

With the exclusion of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 games, all used games are also currently 50% off. I must warn you that these are selling like hot cakes, so act fast! For any of you with a Wii U, the new Super Mario Brothers can be yours for just $22.50 instead of $44.99. Keep in mind that the discount will be visible at checkout. If the game you want isn’t available online, then you can also try to reserve it in-stores and pick it up on Sunday.

Shipping is free on orders over $25.

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.

Lowe’s Canada BOGO Sale: Deals On Laundry Pair, Kitchen Faucets, Kitchen Cabinets & More!

Posted by on October 6, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Lowes Canada BOGO Sale: Deals On Laundry Pair, Kitchen Faucets, Kitchen Cabinets & More!

Until Wednesday, you can take advantage of a “buy one, get one free” deal at Lowe’s on select appliances, kitchen faucets, kitchen cabinets and water dispensers.

Admittedly, Lowe’s seems to have cheated ever so slightly on their promotion because they have also included a BOGO 50% off deal on an Amana white laundry pair but if you’re in need of a new set, then even such an offer is an amazing one! During the course of the BOGO sale, you can get the Amana laundry pair for just $996 instead of its original price of $1496. In fact, the washer has actually already been discounted to just $672 (reg. $848) and by adding both to your cart, you can get the dryer for just $324 (reg. $648) for a total of $996. Off the original total, this is $500 in savings, which is actually 35% off.

The washer is a 4.7-cu ft high efficiency front-load one and the dryer is a 7.4-cu ft electric dryer. What’s cool about the washer is that it has a delay wash option. So if you live in one of those areas where utility rates are higher at certain peak times, then you can simply load your clothes in, turn on the delay wash function and have it turn on in the middle of the night or whenever the costs are the lowest. Don’t forget that you still need to get your own fill and drain hoses as these aren’t included.

With regards to the kitchen faucets, the BOGO offer applies to the Pfister VOSA stainless steel kitchen faucet, which is regularly priced at $114.50. As for the water dispensers, you can get a free Greenway home products pitcher replacement filter with purchase of a Primo bottom-loading hot & cold water dispenser.

Planning on re-doing your kitchen? Then you’re going to want to take advantage of Lowe’s’ kitchen pantry deal. For any 6 cabinets that you buy, you can also get a pantry for free. Choose among the following collections:

If you choose to shop in-stores instead, then you can also choose among Brookton or Caspian cabinet collections.

Keep in mind that although the Lowe’s BOGO Sale officially expires October 8th, all of the merchandise is also only available while supplies last. As for shipping, you can either choose to ship to your nearest store for free or by Lowe’s truck delivery at an extra cost. For the laundry set, for instance, delivery by truck came up to $75.

Art.com Promo Code: 50% Off Photos To Canvas

Posted by on September 30, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Art.com Promo Code: 50% Off Photos To CanvasIt’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Turn your photos into works of art for 50% less at Art.com right now.

Click here to turn your photos to art @ Art.com now

  • Coupon Code: NXC966
  • Discount: 50% off photos to canvas
  • Expiry: 3rd October 2014

My baby is only a couple of months old and without counting, I can tell you with absolute certainty that I already have hundreds of pictures. It’s just so easy to take loads of pictures with a smartphone, especially one as awesome as the iPhone (yes, I’m totally iPhone obsessed) but what’s not so easy, is figuring out what to do with them after.

One of the best things is to turn them into your very own canvas prints. I have been meaning to just that with my own pictures because all of my walls are still bare from having moved last summer. I know it’s been a couple of months and I should have had plenty of time to hang something up but… with a baby, everything just takes ten times longer.

And so, I have actually been meaning to do a really fun project with pictures of my baby. I plan on taking zoomed in pictures representing each letter of the word “LOVE”. So for example, I might take a picture of my baby’s hand as she forms the letter “L”, then another picture of her mouth as she tried to talk and shapes it in the form of the letter “O” and so on. From the hundred of pictures I already have, chances are I already have all of these but it’s also just as fun to take new ones. I then plan on framing each picture individually and so considering that I need to do this 4 times, Art.com’s promotion couldn’t have come at a better time.

All in all, the possiblities are endless and you can create anything you want but if you’re stuck for ideas, then you can also check out Art.com’s idea section. As for prices, these highly depend on the size of the canvas. Since an 8″ x 10″ is normally $34.99, then you would be looking at paying just $17.50. You can also check out all sizes and prices before starting the process of adding your pictures, but make sure to mentally slash these in half.

Shipping varies per order and although they are a US-based company and there is a chance that you might get charge duty and customs fees, there is also a really high chance that you won’t. I have ordered from Art.com in the past and have never been hit with any such fees. If you would prefer to get ready-made art, then you can also use one of our other Art.com coupon codes to save up to 35% off your entire order.

Walmart Canada Anniversary Deal: Poulan Pro PR240 Dual Stage Snow Blower – Just $498

Posted by on September 17, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Walmart Canada Anniversary Deal: Poulan Pro PR240 Dual Stage Snow Blower   Just $498

Betcha you didn’t expect to see a snowstorm just yet, did you? With the weather only getting colder, the time has come to start thinking about how you’re going to clear all that snow. Walmart is officially launching their Anniversary Event this Thursday, September 18th 2014, but it looks like on top of the $13 Lexar 32GB USB JumpDrive that I wrote about recently, another deal has gone live before the official start date. For a limited time, you can get the Poulan Pro PR240 dual stage snow blower for just $498.

I love snowstorms and am actually very excited for snow. Cue the hating stares at the computer screen but looking at a snowstorm from the comfort of my couch is one of my favourite things to go. Now, going out into the cold or clearing any snow most certainly isn’t one of my favourite pastimes.

Having just recently moved into a new place with a driveway that will be needing clearing, I know that my hubby would sure appreciate a snow blower. Shovelling is a great work-out and all but not practically every day at the frequency that our Canadian snowstorms happen, especially since this winter is gearing up to be one of the coldest in a long time.

Described as being perfect for driveway clearing, the Poulan PR240 snow blower boasts a 179cc engine and a 24″ clearing width. Given that my hubby is rather tall and I’m rather short (compared to him at least), I also really like that the handle is adjustable for added comfort.

Although Walmart doesn’t display its original price, I actually found this same snow blower on Amazon.com for $599.95. Out of all the other snow blowers currently available at Walmart, this one is also the cheapest one in-stock right now and is also the best one as other ones aren’t as powerful, despite boasting a cheaper price tag. I found the Brute snowblower 8 torque power snow blower for $548 but at 205cc, it’s not that significantly different from the Poulan.

And get this… Walmart will also ship it absolutely free, despite its 240 lbs weight. If you’re a lightweight like me, this is major plus!

Hitachi

  • $249 1/2-in 18V variable speed cordless hammer drill: free $119 value battery
  • $259 3-tool 18V li-ion cordless combo kit: free $79.99 value battery

Keep in mind that all of the initial prices that you see are those for the combo kit or tools in question and these are actually all on sale as well.

Given that Dewalt is widely considered as being one of the best brands in the field of repairs and construction, I searched for the very first combo kit on the list above, the Dewalt 20V max lithium ion compact drill/ driver & impact driver combo kit. Lowe’s has it on sale for $249, down from the original retail price of $299. To be fair, Amazon.ca actually has it slightly cheaper for just $241.22 but it’s the fact that Lowe’s throws in a free battery that makes it all worth it. For anyone who frequently uses their cordless drill, an extra battery can certainly make all the difference. Heck, even for a personal project, it can make all the difference as there is nothing worse than setting out to either start or complete a project only to be stalled by a dead battery!

I spotted the Adventure Time Munchkin game that will be fun for the entire family. I have not played the line of Munchkin games, but I have read up on them and highly considered it. It is an awesome game where you play a hero that has to battle foes, avoid magical curses, and fight monsters to reach level 10 and win the game. With the Adventure Time theme, you can play as one of eight characters from the popular TV series. This game regularly costs $29.95, but after coupon code, it comes down to $22.46.

I love globes, and we used to have one when I was a kid. It was just your run of the mill globe used for teaching children where things were in the world. I would love to get a big, beautiful globe for display one day. This 12″ Antique Globe is a bit more than I would usually like to pay at $99.95, but it is a stunning full colour globe with beautiful accents. The coupon code helps substantially by bringing the cost of the Antique Globe down to $74.96.

Your cart must total $25 after coupon to receive free shipping. For orders under $25, you always have the option of having your purchases shipped to your local store for free. You would just need to pick them up.

Amazon Canada: Up To 70% Off SafeRest Mattress & Pillows Protectors

Amazon Canada: Up To 70% Off SafeRest Mattress & Pillows Protectors

Protect your mattress or pillow with SafeRest’s protectors and encasements. These are on sale right now at Amazon and are up to 70% off the original price, starting at just $34.95. Depending on the size, pillow protectors start at $13.99 and mattress protectors start at $29.95.

Poopsplosion, blowout, whatever you want to call it, it happens and it sucks. I’m definitely speaking from experience as I have had a lot of these already from co-sleeping and just from changing my baby on the bed in general. Just a couple of days ago, it happened again and this time was so bad that I had to Google how to remove poop stains from the mattress and this prompted me to look for a waterproof mattress cover.

SafeRest’s mattress protector definitely features everything I need and more and considering it usually retails for close to $100 (depending on the size), then it’s definitely well worth it. Below are the different ones available and how much you can expect to pay right now:

The king sized one, for instance, is actually 71% off and on top of being waterproof, also protects from all of the following: dust mites, fluids, urine, perspiration, allergens and bacteria. Plus, it’s made of hypoallergenic cotton and SafeRest’s promises that it’s both noiseless and breathable. Even more surprising is that out of 40 reviews, there is a general consensus of 4.8 stars out of 5 with happy comments like this one:

I recently purchased this mattress protector. To be honest you hardly know that it is there – and that is a good thing! There is no plastic sounds when you move and the protector does not bunch up. Even though you hardly know it is there – I am pretty sure it is very good at protecting the mattress because when I wash it, I can see how durable the cover is etc.

Price comparing also proved that for its price, this is definitely the best mattress protector available out there as well. The cheapest I found on Sears is the basic waterproof mattress pad, which is $23.99 for a queen-sized bed and $28.79 for king but it doesn’t even come close to SafeRest’s quality. Although it’s waterproof, it doesn’t offer protection against the number of elements that SafeRest’s one down and it also isn’t hypoallegenic.

On top of other sizes of mattress protectors and encasements, there are also a couple of options for pillows:

Shipping is free on orders over $25.

Amazon Canada: 47% Off Black & Decker 20V Drill – Just $52

Posted by on July 31, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 47% Off Black & Decker 20V Drill   Just $52

Ready, set, drill away with Amazon’s awesome deal: get the Black & Decker SSL20SC 20V drill for just $52.56, which is 47% off its original price of $99.99. Plus, since Amazon typically ships orders over $25 for free, you will get this drill without any additional shipping charges.

When it comes to drills, Black & Decker are definitely one of the most popular ones out there because of their durability and power. This one features a lithium-ion battery, which means that you can charge it once and then leave it lying around anywhere else (or better yet, stowed away in the closet) until the next time you need it without worrying that the battery will lose its charge from not being used. In fact, according to Amazon’s description, the battery can hold a charge up to 18 months, which is pretty incredible!

It also has a slew of great reviews like this one:

Received this drill as scheduled. It has good balance, easy to control and very versatile. It has lots of power when needed and the preset torque settings are quite accurate (they are indicated by screw and bit size in pictures, rather than just numbered settings). 20 volts is a nice number for power and the lithium ion battery is small, light and installed easily.

At 20 volts, it’s also one of the highest voltages you can get on a drill. I had a look on Home Depot’s website and the only other cordless I found for close to the same price as Amazon’s deal is the Ryobi 18V, and although it comes with the drill kit, it has less voltage than the Black & Decker one. I have also been told that going with lesser known brands when it comes to cordless drills isn’t recommended at all. Although it depends on everyone’s preferences, Dewalt tends to be the most favoured because of its power but if you only plan on doing odd fixing jobs around the house here and there, then this Black & Decker drill is sure to fit the bill.

In fact, a friend of mine used his Black & Decker one on a regular basis and after more than ten years, it still continues to serve him well. The only other 20V I found at Home Depot is the Makita cordless compact drill, currently on sale for $169 (reg. $199).

This drill can go back to its original price at any time as no expiry has been given for it, so be sure to take advantage of it ASAP if you’re in need of a drill.
