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

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)

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!

Lowe’s Canada Freebie: Free Battery (Up To $130 Value) With Purchase Of Select Cordless Combo Kits & Tools

Posted by on September 15, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Lowes Canada Freebie: Free Battery (Up To $130 Value) With Purchase Of Select Cordless Combo Kits & Tools

Are you ready for a major freebie? The “Free Battery Cordless Tool Event” is currently on at Lowe’s and you guessed it… you can get a free battery with any cordless combo kits and select tools! Plus, shipping is also sure to be free for all off these! Keep reading to find out more. Lowes Canada Freebie: Free Battery (Up To $130 Value) With Purchase Of Select Cordless Combo Kits & Tools

During this event, you can either get a free battery with purchase of any DeWalt or Porter Cable cordless combo kit or with purchase of select Hitachi, Bosh and Kobalt tools. To make it easier for you, I have broken it down into the kind of savings you can expect to see when you get:

DeWALT

  • $249 20V max lithium ion compact drill/ driver & impact driver combo kit: free $89.99 value battery
  • $169 12/20V max charger radio: free $89.99 value battery
  • $229 18V cordless compact drill/ impact driver combo kit: free $129 value battery
  • $499 18V worksite charger/ radio: free $129 value battery
  • + free battery with any cordless combo kit

Porter-Cable

  • $169 20V max li-ion drill-driver and impact driver combo kit: free $79.99 value battery
  • $269 4-tool 20V li-ion cordless combo kit: free $79.99 value battery
  • + free battery with any cordless combo kit

Bosh

  • $199 2-tool 18V li-ion drill-driver cordless combo kit: free $89.99 value battery
  • $249 18V 1/2-in cordless variable speed brushless impact driver with soft case: free $89.99 value battery

Kobalt

  • $179 4-tool 18V motor li-ion cordless combo kit: free $59.99 value battery

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!

Moosers, between all of the brands listed above, what is your favourite? Share with us in the comments section!

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

Posted by on September 7, 2014 at 2:00 PM

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.

The Bay Canada: Today Only 60% Off Pillows

Posted by on July 23, 2014 at 9:00 AM

The Bay Canada: Today Only 60% Off Pillows

The Bay is having a flash sale today with all things bedding. Besides 60% off duvets and 30% off mattress covers, The Bay is offering 60% off pillows.

With summer comes sweaty heads. By the end of summer you may notice your pillow has a little bit of a funk to it. I notice this with my kid’s pillows as they seem to be avid sweaters. You can try washing your pillows but I find that never comes out right and the pillows get all warped. Plus, you really should replace your pillows often to reduce dust mites and other lurkers on your sheets and pillows.

The Bay is offering 60% off today only, so now is the time that I’m thinking I could use a few new pillows for myself and my family. They have the entire price range from $8 up to over $200, so there is something for everyone.

For myself, I spend good money on a pillow as I’m a very fussy sleeper and can’t sleep with a crappy pillow. I’ve had the pillow I have now for about five years and it probably needs a refresh but I have yet to find one like it. It looks like the down pillows are the most expensive, and I actually don’t like down, so a lesser expensive pillow is the way to go for me today!

This Distinctly Home medium support gel pillow sounds right up my alley. It was regularly $59.99, now only $24.

For my kids, I really don’t like to spend too much as they aren’t that picky, don’t have any aches and pains and seem to throw up in their beds every year. For them, spending $8 is right on target and because they are all belly sleepers, this Distinctly Home jumbo soft support pillow is perfect. It has a regular price of $19.99.

The Bay offers free shipping on orders over $99, so you might want to check out the duvets or mattress covers as well as the pillows!

Costco Canada: $65 Off Estratto Water Cooler/Single Serve Coffee Maker & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Costco Canada: $65 Off Estratto Water Cooler/Single Serve Coffee Maker & Free Shipping

Get the convenience of a water cooler and coffee maker rolled into one with the Estratto bottom loading stainless water cooler with single serve coffee maker. It’s currently on sale for just $274.99  (reg. $339.99) at Costco.

Whenever friends and family come over, I always feel a little iffy about offering them water from the tap. My hubby and I regularly drink from the tap but I’m not as comfortable offering and always find myself apologizing for not having bottled water. A water cooler would certainly make things easier and this one would give the option of either water or coffee. I’m a huge coffee addict and already have a Keurig brewer, but this water cooler would definitely help to clear up valuable counter space as well.

The water cooler part of the machine uses 19L water bottles and can make up to 6L of cool water every hour. Not only is this a more eco-friendly way of drinking bottled water, but it’s cheaper and much easier than having to constantly stock up on bottles too. My household goes through dozens of bottles every week and it definitely amounts to a lot of wasted plastic, money and time spent buying it.

Surprisingly, the coffee maker actually features five cup sizes, from a small 4oz size to a large one perfect for a travel mug. Although according to reviews, the tray isn’t big or deep enough for a travel mug, but you could just hold your cup while it pours or use a larger cup to pour it into before transferring it. The coffee maker also only uses K-Cups, but I find these are much more convenient than waiting for coffee to brew the old-fashioned way. Plus, each cup of coffee always tastes the same and you can stock up on plenty of different flavours.

Although there are no reviews on Costco for this machine, there are a couple of mixed ones on Amazon.ca. It would seem that people either love or hate it. While one reviewer commented that the heater coil broke after a week, another posted the following five star out of five review:

We use a water cooler for drinking water…so, when I saw this with not only the bottom load for water jug, but also a built in single serve coffee maker…I was ecstatic!

Although it’s on sale for $349.97 (reg. $379.99) on Amazon.ca, Costco’s current and usual prices are still better deals.

As usual, Costco also offers absolutely free shipping.

Costco Canada: $70 Off Elise Brown Jewellery Armoire (Now $170 | Was $250)Is your jewellery always scattered all over the place? Organize it with the Elise brown jewellery armoire, which is now on sale for just $169.99 (reg. $249.99) at Costco.

A couple of months ago, I was very tempted to get the Anika dresser top jewellery box at Costco but ended up buying it for a friend instead for her birthday. I’m actually happy I didn’t get it for myself also because I much prefer this mirror armoire instead. It’s a free standing jewellery closet with enough hooks, ring bars and overall space to hold just about any jewellery collection. At first, I wondered if I would have enough room in my bedroom for this but considering it’s only 4 inches wide and stands about close to 5 feet tall, I could definitely tuck it into a corner. I tend to scatter my make-up everywhere and so, I would definitely use it to put some essential make-up pieces to quickly use on my way out as well. It could even be placed in the entryway if you don’t already have a mirror there.

The armoire can be tilted either up or down and comes in a brown colour with a veneer finish and solid wood. If you have little kids (or even big ones) that like to rifle through your collection, then it also comes with a lock and key for security.

Since necklaces are the worst to organize and keep untangled, I love that it comes with plenty of hooks. You could either use one necklace per hook or hang several ones on the same one (perhaps the thinner necklaces together and the rest on all the other hooks). You also won’t have to worry about your jewellery getting scratched as the armoire comes with a Jewel-Protect lining.

As far as price comparing goes, I found the mirror with jewellery cabinet at London Drugs for $129.99 at but it doesn’t look nearly as nice as Costco’s one and it also doesn’t have as many hooks or ring bars. In fact, Wagjag also has a cheaper deal available for a similar product: the wooden mirror jewellery cabinet for $150 but like London Drugs, it doesn’t have as many hooks or bars and the ring bars are plastic instead of wooden like the ones at Costco. Walmart has a more expensive one at $199: the Brassex jewelry cabinet with mirror and Amazon has the Southern Enterprises wall-mount jewelery mirror for $217.45 but it’s one that need to be hung up on a wall. Wagjag also currently has a similar mirror jewellery cabinet for %

It weighs 32lbs but luckily, you won’t have to lug it around as Costco offers absolutely free shipping!

April Cornell Canada Coupon Code: B1G1 Cushions

April Cornell Canada Coupon Code: B1G1 Cushions

April Cornell just launched an awesome buy one get one promotion on cushions! Buy one, get one free until the end of the weekend.

Buy one cushion, get one free @ AprilCornell.ca now

  • Coupon Code: STACK14
  • Discount: buy one cushion, get one free
  • Expiry: 6th July 2014

‘Tis the season of patios and barbecue parties, and I can definitely see most of these cushions looking nice for outside use or decorative purposes. I particularly like the deft embroidered cushion at $19 as it features blue flowers stitched onto a white pillow. As Avigayil mentioned a couple of weeks before, although April Cornell’s prices may seem higher compared to other merchants, the biggest factor to remember is that they also offer products of quality. Most of their merchandise is made from 100% cotton, which is a much better material compared to polyester, for instance. The deft embroidered cushions, with the other cushions, are actually made with slub cotton, which is a cotton that most resembles linen.

Whether for outside or inside use, the great part about these cushions is that the cover is removable and may be machine washed in cold water. There is nothing more annoying than throwing in an entire pillow to wash, only for it to come out either in pieces or with the fluff unevenly distributed.

For a more universal look, I also really like the essential cushions (two for $34) as they are available in a variety of colours and feature a self-striped cotton pattern.

The only potential drawback are the shipping fees as the more you spend, the higher these are: $12.70 for orders under $50, $13.70 for orders under $100, etc. However, this buy one get one offer definitely makes it worth it, as this is how I see it:

  • Without the buy one get one offer: two whisper cushions @ $29 each = $58 + $13.70 shipping fees = $71.70
  • With the buy one get one offer: two whisper cushions for the price of one = $29 + 12.70 shipping fees = $41.70

Plus, both pillows don’t need to be the same. The discount is applicable to any regularly-priced cushion at equal or lower price. For more April Cornell coupon codes, be sure to keep an eye on our forum.

Walmart Canada: $200 Off 8′ Hardtop Gazebo – Now $398

Walmart Canada: $200 Off 8 Hardtop Gazebo   Now $398

With moving season in full swing, if you’re moving and your new place has a backyard (or if you already have one), then you’re going to want a gazebo! Luckily, Walmart has a really good deal on an 8′ HomeTrends square hardtop gazebo right now. For a limited time, you can save $200 off its original price of $598 and get it for just $398!

I’m actually moving into a place that has a backyard and I’m definitely tempted to get this gazebo because it’s the cheapest one with a hard top that I could find. I searched for one at Canadian Tire and only found the Pavilion one on sale for $1,699.99 and while it’s very nice, I definitely am not looking for anything quite that impressive. I also found the Crawford gazebo for $149.99 but it’s not quite as sturdy as the one at Walmart as it comes with a canopy instead of a hard top.

Since Costco typically has very good deals, I had a look on there as well and the cheapest I could find is the Sojag Nevada 10′ x 12′ sun shelter for $969.99,and although it’s slightly bigger, it’s still more than double the price than the one at Walmart.

Some of you may find it daunting to get a HomeTrends product but this one definitely looks solid, especially since it features a heavy duty steel frame, along with a steel roof that is rust-resistant. Plus, I’m positive that no one will ever think to wonder about the brand of this gazebo, unless they really like it, which I’m sure they will as it certainly looks very elegant on the picture. In fact, here’s what one reviewer posted about this gazebo a month ago:

Most economical hardtop gazebo I could find. Shipping took longer than stated but it arrived ( mail ordered ). I haven’t finished putting it up yet but so far it seems well made. Very heavy so wind shouldn’t be a problem.

Keep in mind that several people are needed to lift the top onto the posts and that come winter, it’s recommended that you store it indoors.

Walmart is known for offering free shipping but I’m actually quite surprised that it includes this gazebo as well, especially since the overall product weighs close to 150lbs!
