Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor Was $120 | Now only $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 1, 2015 at 8:41 AM

Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor Was $120 | Now only $50 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Keep your home protected with the Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor. This home camera was $119.99, but is now only $49.99. You will also qualify for free shipping, as this item is more than the $25 minimum.

While we are all happy to throw open our doors for the nice weather, but you do have to protect yourself. During the summertime, domestic break-ins increase. While thieves are not always smart, it is much easier to break into your home when the ground is not covered in ice. Protect your family and your home with the Philips In Sight Wireless Home Monitor.

This monitor is Wi-Fi enabled and allows you to check on your camera from an iPhone or iPad whether you are home or on vacation.  From reading around the internet, it seems the app for this camera is only currently available at the iTunes store. Included with your camera is a wall mount so you can set this little camera up where ever in your home. I would recommend picking one of your entryways or monitoring your garage entrance. This handy little camera will send you push notifications when noise or motion is detected. Recordings from your camera can be placed automatically in a Dropbox account. This camera also has a warranty for a year on parts.

The Source has a comparable camera you could pick up, the ION Two Way Monitoring Camera for $149.99. Over at Walmart.ca, the Summer Infant Baby Link Wi-Fi Internet Viewing Camera has similar capabilities and is on clearance for $150. There is also a second party seller on Amazon Canada who has this exact camera on sale for $98.09, but you would also pay shipping.

There are not many reviews on this camera. It simply is not being sold many places in Canada. I went over the border to look at American reviews, and this camera sits at a solid three out of five stars across the border.  Over there some people really like the ease of use the app provides for this camera, but others report having connectivity issues. For this fantastic price, you will have to make your own call.

This is a great price for a Wi-Fi enabled camera that connects to your iPhone. Most cameras that connect to apps generally run around $100 from what I have seen with my research. You could also use this as a baby monitor, or in my case toddler trouble monitor. This could also be used as a spy cam if you are worried about something happening in your home with any service providers that enter your home. A friend of mine set one of these up and caught a housekeeper stealing from her. She now has a reliable housekeeper she loves replacing the original. Whatever you use this camera for, this is a great deal that is only good for today. You may want to grab yours now!

U-BAND Sport Armband Accessory Was $29 |Now $9.59 With Coupon Code + Shipping @ Tuango

Posted by on May 13, 2015 at 10:02 AM

U BAND Sport Armband Accessory Was $29 |Now $9.59 With Coupon Code + Shipping @ Tuango

If you work out, an armband holder for your phone can become almost a necessity. Over at Tuango, they have a nice little U-BAND sports accessory for your phone. This holder retails for $29, but it is on sale today for $11.99. Use our exclusive coupon code and the band drops down to $9.59.

If you are not familiar with Tuango, you should start checking out their deals. Tuango was only in Quebec but has recently expanded across Canada. Right now pick up this great U-BAND sports armband for your iPhone or Android. Use our coupon code MOOSE15 to take another 15% off any order at Tuango. To check out all the deals across Canada, make sure you have the indicator in the top left corner set to either your location or “elsewhere in Canada” if your city is not listed.

I always find it so much easier to keep motivated during my workout when I can listen to music. I have tried listening to podcasts and audiobooks, but nothing gets your heart pumping like some good songs. This handy little armband will keep your phone safe and secure. I tried a few times to shove my phone in my pocket and it just weighs you down.  I have used a similar neoprene and Velcro holder in the past and it was handy.

This deal comes with a few options that fit a variety of phones, but are all at the same price point.

  • Option 1 is compatible with iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6. This band is available in pink, black and purple.
  • Option 2 is compatible with Samsung S3/S4/S5 (Android). This band is available in hot pink, black and purple.
  • Option 3 is compatible with iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6. This option comes with a removable yellow pocket to stow a key or something else small. Colour choices include black, pink and blue.

The U-BAND armband is sold only through second party sellers on Amazon Canada and does not retail elsewhere. Wagjag has a similar phone holder that is only compatible with iPhone 5 and 6. If you were to pick up the deal at Wagjag before they sell out, you will pay $15. Over at Best Buy Canada, the cheapest armband I could find was $19.99, plus you would have to either pay for shipping or top off your cart to $25. I also found an Adidas universal armband phone holder over at Newegg.ca for $19.99. I think Tuango has a sweet deal for one of these armbands.

Shipping costs vary at Tuango and are dependent on the item you purchase. For this sports armband, a $4 shipping charge will be added to your final purchase. It also says that taxes are included, so that’s a little bonus for you as well. Grab one of these now while they still have your colour choice. I noticed many people have purchased this item, and these deals do sell out.

Amazon Canada: 61% Off Belkin Charge & Sync Dock For iPhone 5/6 & iPod 5th Gen – Now $15.11

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 61% Off Belkin Charge & Sync Dock For iPhone 5/6 & iPod 5th Gen   Now $15.11

Quick! The Belkin F8J045BT charge and sync dock with lightning cable connector for iPhone or iPod Touch 5th generation is 61% off at Amazon. Right now, you can get it for just $15.11 instead of its regular retail price of $38.49.

The Belkin charge & sync dock is compatible with all of the following devices:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPod Touch 5th gen
  • iPod Nano 7th gen

It has an aluminum finish and comes with a 4-foot hardwire USB cable, though you would still need to use your own power supply. The great part about this dock is that you don’t need to take off the case off your phone each time as it’s case-compatible, which means that you can just plop your phone in whenever it’s in need of charging. Speaking of which, did you know that the best way to charge your phone by never letting it get to zero and charging it when it reaches 40%.

Here’s a review from BestBuy.com, where this dock is currently $31.99:

Perfect for the IPhone with the lightning connector, especially if, you are using a case. The design allows you to seat the phone securely and allows a phone with case to be set into the dock. To my knowledge, this is the only one of its kind, which allows that.

On Amazon, it actually has as many as 73 reviews and a total of 4/5 stars! So for just $15, this is actually pretty awesome!

iPhone 6

If you have an iPhone 6, then I have good news for you. This dock will accommodate your phone as well. The only thing to keep in mind that in general, an iPhone 6 uses a different USB charger from that of the iPhone 5. Whilst the iPhone 5 one is 5W, the iPhone 6 uses a 12W but does it matter with regards to the Belkin? Sort of but probably not. According to Amazon’s “Questions and Answers” section, one of the answers states that there is a potential for overheating. Other answers, however, stated that this dock works perfectly for the iPhone 6. So it looks like this is one of those things where you just need to decide for yourself if you want to give it a try or not. Personally, if I had the iPhone 6, I would definitely go for it!

Shipping

Amazon only ships orders over $25 for free, so you would need to pay the $3.59 standard shipping rate or add a filler item. Personally, I would definitely opt for the second choice, especially since you would only be missing a bit less than $10.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Up To $60 Off Mophie Space Pack For iPhone 5 16GB or 32GB – Now $100 or $120

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Up To $60 Off Mophie Space Pack For iPhone 5 16GB or 32GB   Now $100 or $120

Got an iPhone 5? Then check out this super cool gadget on sale at Chapters Indigo: right now, you can save up to $60 on the Mophie space pack for the iPhone 5. You have the choice between the 16GB version or the 32GB one. Trust me when I say that if you have an iPhone 5, then you absolutely need this item. Shipping will also be free as Chapters Indigo ships orders over $25 for free.

For Christmas, I bought my hubby the Anker 13000 omh portable battery that Avigayil had blogged about back in December. It tends to go up and down in price but right now, it’s back to being $34.99. Shipping is also quick as well.

To get back to the point though, after giving it to my hubby, I found myself constantly borrowing it because my iPhone 5 needs to be recharged at least twice a day. I felt so bad about constantly borrowing his gift that a couple of weeks ago, I ordered one for myself as well and while I love it wholeheartedly, the only drawback is having to carry around a battery that is slightly bigger than my phone. Don’t get me wrong, the convenience of having this battery far outweigh any sizing issues, but had I known about the Mophie, I may have gone with it instead.

If you have an iPhone 5, then you can either get the:

Both versions also come in a choice of the following colours: black, white or gold.

So what is the Mophie space pack? It’s essentially an iPhone phone case that adds either 16GB or 32GB of storage to your phone, along with an additional charge. Mind blown? Yeah, I am too.

I  have to admit that it’s the first I head of this product but it’s really quite cool! As you can see on the picture above, it’s also not too bulky. A 1700mAh charge should also double your battery life but it really depends on how heavily you use your phone and the amount of apps that you tend to run simultaneously.

Important

Now, at Amazon, the Mophie space pack is more expensive. The 16GB gold version, for instance, is on sale for $149.99 (reg. $199.99), which is $50 more than at Chapters. However, browsing around, the only price discrepancy I found is that the black 32GB one is actually cheaper! It’s down to $115, so if that’s the one you want, then make sure to get it at Amazon instead, but it doesn’t look like the price will stick for long. For all other colours and storage capacity ones, make sure to get it at Chapters Indigo instead.

Trade Up To iPhone 6 From Just $80 With Telus @ Best Buy Friends & Family Sale (March 26th In-Stores Only) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 25, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Trade Up To iPhone 6 From Just $80 With Telus @ Best Buy Friends & Family Sale (March 26th In Stores Only) (EXPIRED)

I love iPhones a little too much to agree with the funny image above of the iPhone 6 bending down to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but the fake ad is a genius one nonetheless! Speaking of iPhones, tomorrow on March 25th, Best Buy will be having a Friends & Family Sale with the possibility to trade up to an iPhone 6 for as low as $79.99. This offer is only with a Telus plan, but there are other offers clients of Bell, Rogers and Virgin Mobile.

The iPone 6 trade-in offer is the one that most caught my attention because not only I’m with Telus myself but I also have the iPhone 5s. When the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus first came out, I contemplated switching but ultimately opted not to shell out the big bucks to upgrade to the newest toy.

This trade-in offer has captured my attention though because I figure that once the new iPhone comes out in September (nothing is confirmed of course but there is quite the pattern of new iPhones being released every September), then I could potentially have an easier time selling the latest model online as opposed to the one before that. Plus, my hubby has the iPhone 6 and I must say, there is a noticeable difference in the picture quality between the 5s and the 6!

With Best Buy’s Friends & Family Sale, anyone with Telus could get the:

  • iPhone 6 16GB for just $129.99 (reg. $264.99) or $79.99 after trade-in
  • iPhone 6 Plus 16GB for $239.99 (reg. $374.99) or $189.99 after trade-in

The 64GB and 128GB iPhones are also available but prices aren’t listen online, which means that you would have to visit your local store to find out what these are.

The only fine print is that this discount is on “select 2-year new activation or renewal”. Now the only thing is that there is no specification as to the kind of phone that you can trade in. It’s unclear whether you need to have an iPhone to get an iPhone or if you can bring in a Samsung from another service provider. With regards to a renewal, it’s also unclear if your contract needs to be close to the end of its term or not either.

In either case, if you have been wanting the newest iPhone, then this deal is definitely worth checking out in-stores. I don’t suggest you wait until the end of the day either as iPhone deals tend to sell out like hot cakes.

If you would prefer to get a Samsung phone, then you could potentially also get one for free, along with up to a $150 gift card. For the Samsung Galaxy S5, you would have to go with Bell or Rogers or for the S4, you have the choice between Koodo, Virgin Mobile or Fido.

Other offers include but are now limited to:

  • 20% off Beats headphones & speaker with activation of Apple products
  • 20% off Case-Mate iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus cases
  • 10% off wearable tech products

OtterBox iPhone 6 Case in Black Was $55 | Now $29 with Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 9:35 AM

OtterBox iPhone 6 Case in Black Was $55 | Now $29 with Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Give your phone some tough protection with the OtterBox iPhone 6 Case-Defender Series. This durable case was $54.95 but is now only $28.75. Free shipping is also included with this order.

OtterBox cases have been one of the leaders in the market for phone protection for a while now. Their tough durable cases promise to be so tough you can run a truck over them and the phone would be fine. While I do not recommend testing it by purposely running over your phone with a truck, I do know these durable cases are tough. This particular case has a polycarbonate shell with a silicone slipcover. Add in a screen protector and your phone is protected from drops and slips. Make sure when purchasing you grab the black case, as other colours right now are around $50.

I do not have this case myself, or another Otterbox currently. I do have a very good friend who sings the praises of these cases. She is an elementary school teacher who is with young children all day. Having a case that will stand up to a few slips on the playground when you have 22 pairs of eyes you are tending to is critical. Her phone has been dropped on the playground, the gym floor, the bathroom and many other places without a scuff or a scratch. She will be the first person to tell you that the first grade can be rough and tough on your phone.

Check out the prices elsewhere below. This price at Amazon is pretty sweet in comparison to what the competitors are offering.

  • $54.95 @ Chapters.ca
  • $56.88 @ Walmart.ca
  • $59.89 @ Staples.ca
  • $59.99 @ Bestbuy.ca
  • $59.99 @ Futureshop.ca

Reviews seem overall good though a few folks were not perfectly satisfied. Here is one reviewers take on the case.

Otterbox fits in my hand nicely. Clear sticker covering home button looked cheap so I removed it. Screen protector is not flush to the screen so have to push harder for screen to respond… replaced with a tempered glass one – it’s awesome now. Case is light but feels strong. My phone is protected.

I suspect Otterbox is trying to figure out ways to make their signature cases more cheaply. There are several complaints of various minor issues with this case. Overall, this case seems pretty well tested and most people seem to be happy with it.

If you have been searching for an Otterbox or just for more protection for your phone, now is the time to grab this case. While I typed this post, I saw the stock decreasing so I do not think this deal is going to last long. This item qualifies for Amazon’s free shipping, which is a great bonus for this fab case.

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.

Future Shop Canada Boxing Day Flyer Is Out Now! (Dec 24-28)

Posted by on December 21, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Future Shop Canada Boxing Day Flyer Is Out Now! (Dec 24 28)

The Future Shop Canada Boxing Day flyer has just been released. This flyer is pretty exciting with 47 pages stacked with deals. Remember, if shopping online at FutureShop.ca you can also receive free shipping on orders over $25. This does not apply to oversized items though.

This Future Shop Boxing Day sale will start on the 24th of December at 8 PM EST at FutureShop.ca but the in store sales will start on the 26th of December at 6 AM. I suggest getting into your closest Future Shop Canada store early on Boxing Day to ensure the item you wish to purchase is not sold out by the time you get there. There are no rain checks.

The iPhone 6 has been a big release this year; I was hoping to see a lot of deals on it during all of these Boxing Day sales. I actually have not been too impressed with the offers I have seen so far. Future Shop is offering the iPhone 6 starting at $29.99 after a $50 trade in or $79.99 without a trade in. Of course, there is a catch – this only applies to select 2-year new activation or renewal plans.

Now I was impressed with some of the TV deals at Future Shop during their Boxing Day sales. The Samsung 50″ 4K Series LED Ultra HD Smart TV is only $899.99 which is $800 off the previous price. I wouldn’t even need to go to the movie theatre anymore if I had a TV like this, it would be an investment, right?

While Future Shop Canada might not be the first place you think of buying a cookware set from, this offer might change your mind. During the Boxing Day sales at Future Shop, you can save up to 75% off a huge selection of cookware sets. The Paderno 13 Piece Avonlea Stainless Steel Cookware Set was $849.99 and will be only $249.99 during the Boxing Day event. This offer will be available online only.

There are other offers available too – save up to $700 on major appliances and save up to $100 on Apple products among many other deals. All of the Future Shop Canada Boxing Day sale items will be limited in quantity and limited to one per household.

Here are just a few of the first pages of the Future Shop Canada Boxing Day flyer. You can view the full flyer here.

Posted by on November 18, 2014 at 1:00 PM

ITunes Store: Final Fantasy VI For IOS (iPhone, iPad Devices) | Was $16 Now $11

Hey there, fellow gamers! There’s a pretty sweet deal available on the iTunes Store for a limited time that will allow you to save 30% on a game that hasn’t been reduced in price before – it’s Final Fantasy VI for the iOS, which normally retails for $15.99. Now, you can purchase this wonderful game for only $10.99! Since you’ll be able to play this game on your Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, you don’t have to worry about any shipping – just pay for the game, and you’ll be able to download it to your device soon afterwards!

Click here to check out this deal @ Itunes.apple.com now

Do you remember the classic Super Nintendo game Final Fantasy III? Well the real name of the game in Japan was Final Fantasy VI (6… Square loves using Roman numerals), mainly because we didn’t get Final Fantasy II, III, and V in North America at the time of this Super Nintendo game’s release (way back in 1994). Is it sad, or kind of cool that I could still remember when this game was first released? This was back in the days when my brother and I had a subscription to Nintendo Power (a classic video game magazine from Nintendo), so we knew about all the upcoming Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Game Boy game releases at the time.

What makes this iOS version so interesting is the fact that it has updated visuals. Just take a look at how sleek the visuals look now, especially when you compare it to the original Super Nintendo version. The graphics have been completely overhauled, and while everything is still 2-D, it’s just how the game was meant to be played. Plus, there’s some extra bonuses and new monsters thrown into this version of the game, which should please many fans.

I can honestly say that when I was a younger Ivan, this was my favourite video game for many years. I just might download this game, just to experience the new updated graphics on my iPad. Plus, I loved the storyline of the game, and it had some memorable characters and great gameplay (I still remember the characters and storyline twists, and I first played this game back when I was 9 years old). I highly recommend this game, especially if you’re an RPG fan.

I’ve included a snippet of a review of this game from Arcade Sushi below:

No matter what form it’s in, Final Fantasy VI is one of the best games in the history of the medium, with its fast-paced battles, humongous world to explore, fascinating characters and bold, original story.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Best Buy Canada: Monster DNA On Ear Sound Isolating Headphones (Black Tuxedo) | Was $200 Now $100

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift that would please anyone that listens to music, whether it’s from their iPod, iPhone, iPad, tablet, or cell phone? Then you need to check out today’s deal at Best Buy. It’s for Monster DNA On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones, and they’re currently 50% off the retail price! They typically sell for $199.99, but you can now buy these premium headphones for $99.99! You’ll also qualify for free shipping when you order these Monster DNA On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones!

When you want to enjoy your music even more, these Monster DNA On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones will help you do just that. This brand has a high affinity with their customers, and they look sleek and svelte, too!

It’s been a while since I’ve owned a high quality pair of headphones. Lately, I’ve been using regular stock ear buds that came with my iPhone, and they do the job, but they just don’t deliver that extra impact that these Monster DNA On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones would. These would be the perfect gift for those that are hard to buy presents for – after all, most of us enjoy listening to music, so this would be a great gift!

If you were to purchase these Monster DNA On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones from Amazon, they would cost you $183.11. They’re currently selling for $199.99 at The Source, too. Listed below is a snippet of a review of these Monster headphones from a satisfied Amazon customer:

These are honestly the best sounding headphones I’ve heard in a while. I’ve tried beats and thought the bass was too overwhelming. I tried a good pair of Sennheisers and thought they sounded great, but didn’t like the way they looked or felt.

These may not be available for very long, since limited quantities are currently available. I hope you all have a great weekend!

IGN Free Game Download: Ridge Racer Slipstream For The iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch ($2.99 Value)

Posted by on November 7, 2014 at 6:46 PM

IGN Free Game Download: Ridge Racer Slipstream For The iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch ($2.99 Value)

Any gamers out there that want to try out a free Ridge Racer game for their Apple device? Well IGN is currently having a promotion where you can now get a free download for Ridge Racer Slipstream for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch! This racing game normally costs $2.99, You can’t go wrong with a free game, especially when it’s from a reputable franchise. This isn’t just some no-name racer game – Ridge Racer has been popular on home consoles and arcades since 1995! Also, you won’t have to worry about paying any hidden shipping fees, since you’ll be downloading this game straight on to your Apple device!

The Ridge Racer series has been heralded by Namco for 2 decades as a can’t-miss racing game that anyone could enjoy. I first tried out Ridge Racer on my buddy’s Sony Playstation back when 3D graphics used to impress most people, and I loved how high-speed the racing was compared to another 3D racer that I was used to playing (Virtua Racing for the Sega 32X – it had its charm, but Ridge Racer was just so much funner in my opinion).

When I finally got my own Playstation system several years later, I ended up trying out R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, and for its time it had some amazing graphics! I guess that’s why I have an affinity for the Ridge Racer series… I get nostalgic whenever I hear the name! Ridge Racer Slipstream is a newer entry to the series, and it looks like it’s a lot of fun! Since this game is free, I highly suggest that you download it before this opportunity disappears!

Ridge Racer Slipstream normally costs $2.99 at The Apple Store. Listed below is a snippet of a review of this game from Touch Arcade:

This is a good, well-made Ridge Racer game for your mobile device. It plays the way it should, the content is fully accessible without paying if you have patience, and there’s a good amount in here with more likely to come.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

The Source Canada: InStudio Turin Speaker iPhone/iPod Dock with Alarm Clock Radio (Refurbished) | Was $100 Now $33 (EXPIRED)

Good morning Bargainmoosers! Today, The Source has put their refurbished InStudio Turin Speaker iPhone/iPod Dock with Alarm Clock Radio on clearance – it normally retails for $99.99, but you can now buy this product for $32.98 – that’s $67.01 off the regular price! You’ll also qualify for free shipping when you order this docking station. Just click on the link below to check out this deal at The Source!

This InStudio Turin Speaker iPhone/iPod Dock with Alarm Clock Radio has some great features, including the capability to listen to FM radio, 20W of output power, a 3.0″ full range driver with 4 ohms, 10 preset stations that you can configure, a remote control, a large LCD display that shows you the time, an auxiliary input (for use with portable audio devices, such as MP3 players, cell phones, and tablets), and best of all, it also charges your iPod or iPhone (4S or lower) whenever you plug it in to this speaker dock.

I have an iPod dock that comes with an alarm clock as well, and I really enjoy using it. I’m accustomed to waking up to the sounds of the radio playing as my alarm clock, and it’s also sweet to use it to charge my iPhone. You can also download alarm clock-related apps on your iPhone or iPod Touch that can make your mornings even more interesting!

I’ve included a snippet of a review of this InStudio Turin Speaker iPhone/iPod Dock with Alarm Clock Radio from a satisfied The Source customer below:

Best system ever when it’s on sale. I even purchase 2 of these units. One stays in my home entertainment unit. The other one I put it anywhere I want. Outside, in the basement, up stairs – I just love the box. Great sound. 

Since this item’s on clearance, you’ll want to check it out before it’s gone. Happy hunting, my fellow deal hunters!

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.
