Apple Canada: Get $25 iTunes Card When You Buy Apple TV

Apple Canada: Get $25 iTunes Card When You Buy Apple TV

As if you need another reason to want an Apple TV, buy one from Apple and you’ll be rewarded with a $25 iTunes card.

Considering every store has it for the $109 price that Apple is selling it for, I’d much prefer to buy it directly from the source – Apple – for two reasons. The first reason is the gift with purchase of the $25 iTunes card, which would be used very quickly in my house, but will give us a lot of music for free. Second, why would I buy from a secondary source when I can buy it directly from the company who makes it? This way I know if something happens to it, contacting them will be a breeze.

While I have something similar, it doesn’t really compare to Apple TV and what I love about it is that I can use iCloud to store my movies and music and play them on all my Apple devices. I also have about one million (probably not exaggerating) photos stored in iPhoto on my Mac, that would be great to put look at on my Apple TV. I can also make a movie using iMovie and watch it seamlessly on the big screen.

While this promotion is an awesome one, there is also another promotion for back to school. Avi blogged about this at the beginning of July, but you might want a refresh on the details. If you are going to post-secondary school, buy a Mac and you’ll get a $110 apple store gift card. Interestingly, this is exactly what the Apple TV costs. I’d really like to know if you bought the Mac, got the gift card, used it to buy the Apple TV and then got the free iTunes as well. That would be amazing. If you buy an iPad or iPhone, you’ll get a $55 gift card. Both the Mac and the iPad are also eligible for education pricing too, so if you are going back to school, I’m just full of deals for you. You don’t have to be going back to school to get the Apple TV deal.

All items over $75 qualify for free shipping.

Apple Canada Back to School Offer

Posted by on July 1, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Apple Canada Back to School Offer

Apple Canada has just started up their back to school offer for students and teachers. With the purchase of desktops, laptops, iPads, and iPhones you will receive up to a $110 Apple Store gift card.

The first offer is two-fold. When you buy a laptop or desktop in the Apple Store for Education, you save money off the original retail price.

Buy a Mac for university and get $110 Apple Store gift card only at the Apple Store for Education. For example, an 11″ Macbook Air will cost you $949 as a student, which is $50 off the regular price of $999. Then, you will also receive the $110 bonus Apple Store Card.

In the land of desktops, the 21.5-inch: 1.4GHz Mac is $1149 regularly, but it costs $1099 with educational pricing. You will also receive that $110 gift card with your purchase.

If you purchase an iPad for college, you will receive a $55 Apple store gift card and receive educational pricing discounts. The iPad mini starts at $319 at Apple, but with the educational discount, it will cost students and teachers just $299 and you get the bonus $55 Apple Store gift card. Likewise, the Apple Air in the educational store starts at $499 instead of the regular $519 and comes with that gift card.

If you buy an iPhone for school, you will also receive a $55 Apple Store gift card but there are no further educational discounts. It is still a good deal, if you have wanted to get your hands on an iPhone because you can use the gift card to load your phone up with all the apps you want to buy and some great music as well.

This was always my favourite time of year to buy my Apple products. I really enjoyed combining the gift and the student discount to optimize my buying power. My graduation is in November so I will no longer be a student for the first time in many years. I am now carefully considering what I should buy before my status as a student ends best to take advantage of student discounts like these. You never realize how nice this kind of discount is until you are no longer eligible!

Apple Canada offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more so any major electronics, like these, that you will be buying will ship free.

Vistaprint Canada Promo Code: 50% Off Custom iPhone Cases

Posted by on June 8, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Vistaprint Canada Promo Code: 50% Off Custom iPhone Cases

Got an iPhone 4/4S or 5/5S? Then get 50% off a customized phone case at Vistaprint now! Instead of starting at $20, you can get one from $9.99.

Customize your very own iPhone case @ Vistaprint now

  • Coupon Code: VPCASE25
  • Discount: 50% off iPhone case (+ 15% off site wide)
  • Expiry: Unknown

With Father’s Day right around the corner, if your Dad has an iPhone, then this would be a great opportunity to make him his very own customized phone case. My suggestion would be to make it of a picture of the two of you together! Of course, you could just use Vistaprint’s promotion to make yourself a cool case just the way you like it but that’s just not as fun. Vistaprint Canada Promo Code: 50% Off Custom iPhone Cases

A couple of weeks ago, I set out to get a new case for my iPhone and I have to admit that it proved challenging because although I had a clear idea of what I wanted (a chevron patterned one), I just couldn’t find any to my liking and I didn’t find all that many options. With Vistaprint’s promotion, I could have designed my own case exactly the way I wanted and for much cheaper as I ended up paying $15 for a clear soft-plex case.

Although the price will depend on the amount of customizations you add to the phone case, you can expect to see the following base prices:

  • Lightweight phone case: was $20/ now from $9.99
  • Protective phone case: was $30/ now from $22.49

While the lightweight is thin and only provides coverage along the length of the phone (none on top or at the bottom), the protective version offers all around protection and extra durability with a shock absorber. Considering the number of time I have dropped my phone, I would definitely advise for the protective one as you never know when it will unintentionally slip out of your hands!

At checkout, you can also take advantage of a “the more you buy, the more you save” promotion by getting multiples of the same phone case at an increasingly better price per case.Since shipping is at a flat rate of $7.99 per order, I would suggest ordering a couple of cases either for yourself or for the family to make it even more worthwhile.

The Vistaprint coupon code above may also be used to get 15% off site wide on items like business cards, customized photo products and much more.

Amazon Canada: Otterbox Defender Series Case Now $19.99 (Was $59.80)

Posted by on March 11, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Otterbox Defender Series Case Now $19.99 (Was $59.80)

If you are one of the millions of people that own an iPhone5, you will want to check out this deal from Amazon Canada.  You can get an Otterbox Defender series case for 67% off the regular price. It was $59.80 but is on sale at 67% off right now for just $19.99.

(The above link might show you a $30 price – just click “27 new” from $19.99, and select the $19.99 model fulfilled by Amazon)

I had just a regular iPhone case for my iPhone and it was not very durable at all.  My husband bought me the Otterbox and what a difference!  My only regret is paying so much when I could have got one for just $19.99 from Amazon.

This Otterbox is Purple in colour which suits my taste just fine.  It clips on a belt or pocket or in a bag for handy carrying so it is perfect for the gym or the office.  It also has 3-layer protection which makes it very durable.  My kids can drop my phone from up high and I am not worried about it breaking.

I know this is an incredible deal but I wanted to show everyone else it is as well so I did a little price comparison.  I found the same case at Best Buy Canada for $39.98.  I also found it at Future Shop Canada for $39.98 as well. Over at Walmart Canada it was a whopping $58.83. This is precisely the reason why it is a great idea to price match before making a purchase.

As for the cost of shipping, it will qualify for free shipping when you spend $25 or more.

WagJag Canada:  64% Off iPhone/iPod/Android Armbands

WagJag Canada has a great deal on right now that I have actually taken advantage of in the past.  Save up to 64% on an armband for your iPod, iPhone or Android phone.

There are two options for this deal:

  • $12 for an iPhone/iPod/Android armband (valued at $25)
  • $18 for two iPhone/iPod/Android armband (valued at $50)

The cases will come in six different colours to choose from and there are no additional charges.  All taxes and shipping cost are included so you will no incur any hidden costs which is great.

I got this deal about a year ago and I use my armband every single day at the gym or when I go a walk in the nicer weather.  They are lightweight, comfortable and they have a Velcro adjustable strap so it will fit any arm shape. I got one the last time and have had a few people ask me where I got it.

It would make a great little gift for anyone that like the outdoors or goes to the gym.  You can even wear it inside when you are cleaning the house if you dont want to turn on the stereo. (I do this at nap time sometimes!)

You can buy as many as you would like and you will get your purchase within 2-3 weeks of the deal closing.

iGN: Free Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Game For iPod Touch, iPad & iPhone

Posted by on February 8, 2014 at 9:00 PM

iGN: Free Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Game For iPod Touch, iPad & iPhone

Boom! Another great iOS game for free from IGN!

IGN’s free game of the month is Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders and you get it for free! It’s a 4 1/2 star game and it costs $4.99 USD from iTunes. It’s $44.99 and looks like it’s worth every penny. Just look at this trailer for it. Pretty cool, huh? So it’s a WW2 Warplane Fighter game.

From IGM:

  • Participate in visceral dogfights, protect cities and fleets, bomb enemy structures and even fly through tunnels.
  • Fly in fully recreated cities with realistic weather, accurate atmospheric scattering with aerial perspective and highly detailed planes with interactive cockpits.
  • Invite your friends to play online, and choose between cooperative and competitive modes.

The game came out at the end of November 2012 but isn’t available on the Google Play Store right now. There are two other iterations of Sky Gamblers on the Google Play store (for free) so I picked them up and they are quite fun. They do a very good job at striking a balance between the casual game feel that makes games on your phone or tablet and a full fledged WW2 Warplane Simulator you’d play on a PC or Console.

Grab your code from IGM today and start playing!

IGN: Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour For iOS For Free (Was $7)

Posted by on January 12, 2014 at 10:00 PM

IGN: Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour For iOS For Free (Was $7)

IGN is at it again with another free iOS game! This time it’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour.

I got into the mobile gaming world probably six years ago when my Dad bought me an iPod Touch for Christmas. It was awesome because now I didn’t need to bring a console with me to play games. The games were good back then, but they weren’t great. It wasn’t exactly a full replacement for my beloved PSP. You could play doodle jump and do crosswords until your thumbs fell off, but you couldn’t get a “real” video game experience.

Games like Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour have come much, much closer to replacing a PSP or DS, and for many people it already has. I should mention here that, for me, a cell phone will never replace a hand held console. Unfortunately for Sony and Nintendo, a lot of people disagree. There is no wonder why; this game runs on the Havok Engine! Assassin’s Creed uses the Havok Engine. Just take a look at this game’s trailer and you’ll see what I mean.

Did you watch it yet? Good. See what I mean? Pretty intense, right?

You can get this wonder on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad for free from IGN all month! It’s normally $6.99.

iTunes App Store: Rayman Jungle Run iOS Game for Free (Was $3)

iTunes App Store: Rayman Jungle Run iOS Game for Free (Was $3)

Rayman is back in this awesome platformer for your iOS device!

This deal has me jealous. That’s an emotion I don’t often feel as an Android guy because, I mean, come on, I’m an Android guy. Right? Right. But this one has me jealous. Rayman Jungle Run is one of the top mobile games out there. It’s a bit older now so it’s not in the spotlight or anything but I did notice it recently when I was looking for another Ubisoft game.

I always notice Rayman though because Rayman is awesome. I remember playing Rayman way, way back when it came out in like 1995. That’s almost 20 years ago!! I feel so old. But a new breed of gamers are learning to love Rayman as much as I did with Rayman Origins on handheld, Rayman Legends on console and of course Rayman Jungle Run and Rayman Fiesta Run on mobile platforms.

The whole reason I’m jealous of the iOS crowd is that you can get it on your iPhone or iPad for free and I’m still stuck paying $2.99 like a sucker! Oh well, eventually I’m sure we’ll get a sale but until then, enjoy saving $2.99 you iOS jerks!

I love you all very, very much.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Native Union Curve Bluetooth iDock Only $30 (Was $100)

Chapters Indigo has a great deal on a Native Union Curve bluetooth doc for iPhone 4/4S, now only $29.99, was $99.95, which is a whopping 70% off.

This bluetooth doc looks really cool and can help you enjoy conversations with comfort. You can dock your phone and use it for applications while you talk and charge it. My husband has an iPhone 4S and is worried about us getting rid of our home phone because he likes the landline for important business calls. This item can assuage his fears a little bit so we can stop our $50 a month phone bill and in 2 weeks the item will have paid for itself.

There are a number of colours available:

When I price compared, I couldn’t find this set at many other online stores, although it was on Amazon for $198, so that definitely wasn’t a great deal. I did find this very helpful review on Amazon:

I was concerned about getting rid of my home phone as I don’t like the idea of having a cell phone at my ear all the time. This product provided a great option to allow me to feel secure with only having one phone.

Shipping will be free as the item is over $25.

IGN.com: Get Infinity Blade II For iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch For Free

Nothing says merry Christmas like killing folk in Infinity Blade II on your iOS device for free from IGN!

Infinity Blade is a big deal on iOS. People go nuts over this game, to the point where there are books based on the game. The game is basically an on-rails fighting game and, from what I understand from playing its clones on Android, it really takes advantage of the touch screen interface. Yeah, that’s right, it isn’t on Android. So, for all you people out there who roll their eyes every time I passive-aggressively attack Apple, here is your chance to point out that when it comes to Infinity Blade games, iOS is superior. I admit it, there!

Here is the Infinity Blade II trailer:
