Chapters Canada: $100 Off Kobo Arc 10HD

Posted by on March 8, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Chapters Canada: $100 Off Kobo Arc 10HD

I’m very excited about this deal and very tempted by it! Get $100 off the Kobo Arc 10HD tablet at Chapters. This normally sells for $399, and is now $299. Here’s the thing, Best Buy has also reduced its price down to $299. Both are on until the end of the month. It is up to you to decide where you want to buy it, but this is a great deal.

As I’ve blogged before, I bought my kids two Kobo tablets for Christmas. I was tempted to buy myself one, but really want the larger screen for watching movies, working, writing and making recipes in the kitchen. I couldn’t fathom paying $400 plus tax for this tablet, but now with $100 off, it is almost irresistible to me.

Apparently this tablet has the world’s highest resolution for a 10″ screen, along with surround sound for a really great movie watching and web browsing experience. You can also do 720p HD videos on 16GB of memory. On top of this deal, you’ll also get three free kids books, and this is both from Chapters and Best Buy so I’ll assume it is a Kobo deal.

There is one review on Chapters that says they love their tablet, but weren’t at first convinced to buy an Android and now have changed their mind. Everyone is always talking iPad, and sure if you want to pay the $500+ for the larger screened iPad, or you can save yourself $200 for this one that does the same job without the iconic apple logo on the back.

Shipping is free on this item.

Chapters Canada: $50 Off Kobo Arc 10HD

Chapters Canada: $50 Off Kobo Arc 10HD

Get $50 off the Kobo Arc 10HD right now at Chapters, bringing the price down to $349.99 from $399.99. The Kobo Arc 7HD is also on for $20 off, but it is a way higher price than I blogged it last week at Walmart, although that one is now sold out. Nevertheless, the 10HD is a great price.

As I told you in that last Walmart blog, we gifted our kids two of the 7HD tablets for Christmas. They love them and I love them, but I personally want a larger screen so I can watch movies on it, look at recipes while working in the kitchen and because I just think the bigger screen is more functional for me. I don’t often see this model on sale, so $50 off is great.

With a 10″ screen, the high resolution provides a very rich display and there is also stereo sound. Everything looks really sharp and nice with vivid colours, whether it be for books, magazines, comics, surfing the web, watching moves and more. It has 16GB of memory and you can connect to a number of media with this tablet. It really is perfect for any use.

There is only one review on the Chapters site, but it is a fantastic review:

I just got this tablet today and so far I love it!  I never thought I’d get an Android tablet, but the Arc 10HD changed my mind with it’s powerful specs.  Images look incredibly sharp and the tablet is very user friendly.

Shipping will be free for this item.

Walmart Canada: Kobo Arc 32GB Only $98

Posted by on February 6, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Kobo Arc 32GB Only $98

Walmart has a fantastic deal on the Kobo Arc 7″ 32GB tablet, now only $98. The original price is not listed, but when price comparing I found this tablet for as low as $99 at Staples and as high as $369 at The Shopping Channel and everything else in between. On Black Friday we bought our kids this tablet, but only the 16GB for $99 and this was a really good deal at the time, so I’m going to say the price has gone down and the sale price is even better.

As I mentioned, our kids were gifted their own 16GB Kobo Arc tablets for Christmas. I think it is one of their most prized possessions now and they use them as often as possible. They watch YouTube, play games, Skype their relatives, read books and even do homework on them. At night you can find their tablets lying beside them in bed, to which I gently remove because I have a phobia of wi-fi waves entering their brains. The tablets are great for long car rides, restaurants where my husband and I would like to have an adult conversation, long waits at the doctor or other appointments and so much more. My kids love it when Nana Skypes them, rather than me because it feels so personal – she called me!

I think the price is great, especially if this is a tab for kids, but I’ve used their tablet a number of times myself and could totally get one for myself now. I’d actually prefer a 10″ screen, so I can watch cooking shows while I cook, but my husband thinks the 7″ is much nicer and easier to hold.

As you know, Walmart ships for free.

Bargainmoose Halloween Contest: Win A Kobo Mini eReader!  (CLOSED)

*** Contest now closed, winner was Carrie! ***

For the past few years, I’ve thrown a little Bargainmoose contest each Halloween, to offer a prize to those of you who enjoy getting dressed up. I’m doing it again this year, and I am offering a Kobo Mini eReader worth $49, to one lucky winner!

What I want you to do: when you or your kids are in your fancy-dress costume this Halloween, be it this weekend or on Halloween night next week, take a photo for us. In that photo, make sure you are holding a printout of this Bargainmoose banner, or have it showing on a computer screen in the same photo. We won’t accept contest entries where the banner has been photoshopped in afterwards, you must be physically with our banner when taking your piccie.

We’ll be displaying the photos here on our Flickr feed, so you can see everyone’s dress-up efforts. Once your photo is ready to send to us, please email it to me at contests@bargainmoose.ca (don’t forget to tell me your name) and when I get your piccie, I’ll add it to the Flickr set.

Kobo Canada: $70 – $100 Off The Kobo Arc

Posted by on August 18, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Kobo Canada: $70   $100 Off The Kobo Arc

I was actually in the middle of typing up a deal for the Kobo Vox (which predates this) when I found this deal and knew it was better. Enjoy $70 to $100 off the Kobo Arc at Kobo Canada.

The price depends on the size of tablet you buy. Here is the discount tier:

  • Kobo Arc 16 GB for $129.99 (was: $199.99)
  • Kobo Arc 32 GB for $179.99 (was: $249.99)
  • Kobo Arc 64 GB for $199.99 (was: $299.99)

I’d previously had trouble selecting the 16GB, but that error seems to be fixed now. All three sizes are in stock and are available in either white or black.

If you are wanting a cost effective tablet for back to school, this certainly is it. For the extra money it costs, I would go with either the 32GB or the 64GB if you love your music. I have found that my 16GB device is maxed out on memory all the time, and I cannot fit even half of my music collection on it, and that is without hardly any photos. I also like to put movies on my device for travelling, and the small size of my tablet makes that more difficult.

Enjoy free shipping with your order.

Kobo Canada: $50   $100 Off The Kobo Arc

Get $50 – $100 off the Kobo Arc Reader from Kobo Canada. The discount depends upon its size.

We have seen $50 off Kobo Arc readers before, but not up to $100 off. If you order the 64GB you are getting $100 off your reader. If you order the 32GB you are getting $75 off your reader. If you are ordering the 16GB (which I couldn’t get to work… maybe it is sold out?) you are getting $50 off your reader.

The Arc is powered by a customized Android 4.0 operating system, so not only can you use your Kobo Arc for reading magazine, newspapers, books, and more, but you also have access to over 700,000 apps on Google Play. So many of those apps are free, too!

  • The 16GB 7″ Kobo Arc was $199.99 | now $149.99.
  • The 32GB 7″ Kobo Arc was $249.99 | now $174.99.
  • The 64GB 7″ Kobo Arc was $299.99 | now $199.99.

Shipping is free. All sizes are available in white or black. As noted above, I couldn’t seem to select the 16GB size (as it was missing from the drop-down menu). That might just be a glitch on my end or it could be sold out.

WagJag Canada: Up to 77% off Waterproof Cases for the iPhone, iPad Mini & iPad

Posted by on June 30, 2013 at 6:00 PM

WagJag Canada: Up to 77% off Waterproof Cases for the iPhone, iPad Mini & iPad

There is a new deal at WagJag Canada that I am really excited about.  You can get a waterproof case for your iPhone, iPad, iPad mini or various other devices (such as Blackberry and Kobo reader) for up to 77% off the regular price.

There are three options for this deal:

  • $12 for a waterproof iPhone case (a $40 value, fits some BlackBerry and Android models)
  • $12 for a waterproof case for an iPad mini or Kobo/Kindle eReader (a $40 value)
  • $14 for a waterproof case for the iPad 2, 3 or 4 (a $60 value)

I really want one of these for my iPhone because we do a lot of camping and swimming in the summer.  The other reason is because I have kids.  My kids like to drop things in the weirdest places like bathtubs, puddles and even toilets.  Why are kids so fascinated with dropping things in the toilet? With this case on, you wont need a new phone every time!

So many people have different electronic devices making these cases pretty great because they are so versatile. The other great thing is that this deal includes the cost of shipping as well so there will be no additional charges or hidden costs.

You can buy as many as you would like and the vouchers for Nova Goods will not expire until December 8th 2013.

  • Expiry: 30th June 2013

Kobo is interesting in the eReader space because they are the only ones that have kept up with the big dog, Amazon’s Kindle. Amazon releases the Fire, an Android tablet, Kobo releases their Android tablet, the Arc. Kindle Paperwhite, a backlight eReader for reading in the dark, came out, and Kobo releases their Kobo Glo. It’s very interesting to watch.

Kobo, through their partnership with Chapters bookstores, has almost 50% of the market share of Canadian eReaders and there is a reason for that: they are good eReaders. I think some people are under the impression that Kobo sells solely on the fact that they are partnered with Chapters which is just wrong. They sell because they are good. Now don’t get me wrong, if they were good eReaders and not partnered with Chapters, they wouldn’t be this popular. On the other hand if they sucked and were partnered with Chapters, they wouldn’t sell. So all that to say, it’s a great product and for $20 off (especially on the Glo) you’re getting a great deal! Shipping is FREE!

Kobobooks Canada: Free Cover With Kobo Purchase

Kobo Books is offering a free cover with a Kobo Touch or Kobo Glo purchase at participating retailers. The free cover is up to a $30 value.

There are five retailers participating in this deal:

I could not find anywhere online where The Source, Future Shop, or Best Buy mentioned the free cover. It may only be just in-store offers for them. However, Chapters does mention the free cover and you do need to add the cover separately to your cart and it will come off.

For Staples, the instructions are very specific:

Add Item #982692 (KOBO Glo e-Reader, Pink) and one of the Heart and Soul Cover Skus listed below into your cart and type code 76471 in the Add/Edit Coupons section of the online checkout to redeem this free offer! – Ends 14th May 2013

Most the stores offer free shipping with a minimum ranging from $20 – $50. With the cost of a Kobo Touch or Glo you should certainly be getting free shipping with it no matter which retailer you choose.

Chapters Canada: $25 Off Kobo Arc

Chapters Canada is offering $25 off the Kobo Arc for a limited time only.

The highest percentage discount will be on the smallest sized Kobo Arc, as the discount is a flat rate. Here are the Kobo Arcs on sale:

Most people say it is a good option for the price point. The only real complaint on the device seems to be that if anything goes wrong, Kobo evidently doesn’t have the best customer service so it can be a pain to deal with. I haven’t had a Kobo since the very first Kobo reader – but I do remember that I loved how light the devices were compared to my current tablet.

Enjoy free shipping on all purchases of $25 or more.
