The BBC Natural History Collection On Blu ray Was $153 | Now $40 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

If you love nature, traveling and seeing the world, you need to check out the BBC Natural History Collection available on blu-ray. This set was $153 but is now only $40 and qualifies for free super saver shipping without any additional purchases. You will save 74%!

Amazon has managed to beat the deal Avigayil blogged about this past November at Best Buy by $15! If you missed it before, you can pick up the amazing BBC Natural History Collection on blu-ray today at a spectacular price. This set includes four stunning documentaries including:

  • Planet Earth
  • Wild China
  • Galapagos
  • Ganges

I have personally seen Planet Earth and Wild China. I loved both of these documentaries. I find one of the best parts is that the shows focus not only on the great animals, plants and diversity of the areas but also on people. Sometimes when you are watching a show like this, it is easy to distance yourself from exotic places that seem far away. By adding the human impact element, BBC has created beautiful documentaries that truly make you consider yourself within the bigger diverse web on earth. The two I have watched were thought provoking and beautiful, and I would watch them repeatedly.

Here is what you will find if you try to buy this series somewhere else.

That Amazon price is looking awesome compared with what else is on the market.

Over on Amazon, reviewers love this series. I see several people mentioning that they are blown away by this series. One person went as far as to note that it was worth buying a home theatre just to watch this beautiful documentary. Fourteen people have rated this collection and it carries a strong five out of five star rating.

If you dig these documentaries, the BBC Natural History Collection 2 is also on sale. This second set was $153.00 but is now on sale for $61.99. Though the discount is not quite as steep, a 59% discount is not too shabby either.

I like to tuck away items like this for just the right celebration. I might keep this series for my husband as a present for Father’s Day. This would also make a lovely Mother’s Day gift or a nice evening in for you and your sweetie. Whatever you choose to do, you need to see this fantastic collection.

Striped Stoneware Pitcher Was $35 | Now $14.50 (FS @ $25) @ Chapters Indigo

Posted by on April 12, 2015 at 9:44 AM

Striped Stoneware Pitcher Was $35 | Now $14.50 (FS @ $25) @ Chapters Indigo

The striped pitcher is on sale with 58% off right now @ Chapters Indigo Canada. This cheery pitcher was $35, but is now on sale for only $14.50.

I love the colourful look of this stoneware pitcher. The bright colours remind me of sunshine, flowers and lemonade on the patio. This compact pitcher would be perfect for your first backyard BBQ of the season, or would be a beautiful addition when you plan to invite me over for homemade brunch. Stoneware is versatile, durable and looks so much prettier than a cheapie plastic pitcher on your table. I also appreciate that you can put this pitcher in the dishwasher.

This pitcher is on the smaller side. It is 7.8 inches tall and holds 32 ounces. A pitcher of this size is perfect for juice or stronger cocktails. Chapters Indigo also suggests that you could put flowers in this pitcher. This would look simply darling full of daisies or with a mixed bouquet on your kitchen counter. I think this would be a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day, though I would add flowers to complete the gift.

Price Comparison

A comparable stoneware pitcher might be the Maxwell & Williams Sprinkle Collection Pitcher And Tray Set @ Bed Bath and Beyond for $33.99. If you prefer name brand, another version of this pitcher might be this blue stoneware Le Creuset Stoneware Pitcher that is on sale for $53.83 @ Amazon.ca. It is difficult to find items that compare online. I do not see many pitchers on the internet that are made of stoneware but have often seen them on a shelf in higher end home stores.

Shipping

Shipping is free is you spend a minimum of $25 @ Chapters Indigo. You can also ship this item to a store near you for pickup for free shipping. If you choose to order only this item, shipping is only $5 when I add the item to my cart and checkout.

If you are thinking about a few items to top off your cart, there are several other pitchers on sale also. Perhaps you can pick one out for yourself and one for your mom. The Pink Leaf pitcher was $29, but is now only $14.50. This pitcher is also made of stoneware and holds 54 ounces. If you wanted an alternative that holds more lemonade, this would be a good buy.

Another great option is the Concentric Pitcher that was $35, but is now $14.50. This pitcher is also made of stoneware and is available in black. I like the textured ribbed design. Some bright coloured flowers would look beautiful in this pitcher. This one is even bigger holding 63.2 ounces, and I like the tall and slim design.

I would grab one or several of these pitchers now. The good items in the Chapters Indigo sale section never seem to last long with their great shipping rates. Now I just need to figure out the perfect place for my new cheery pitcher.

Black’s Canada Promo Codes For Gifts For Mom

Posted by on April 9, 2015 at 11:35 AM

Blacks Canada Promo Codes For Gifts For Mom

Black’s Canada wants you to get prepared for Mother’s Day, with a thoughtful gift for Mom. They’ve got quite a few coupon codes out that will save you money on your photo gift this year.

Giving personalized photo gifts is always the way to go when you are buying for someone who truly has everything, like my own Mom. But, even for those who don’t have everything, like me, photo gifts ensure Mom knows how lucky she is to have kids (or a husband) like you.

The coupon code that I see that is the best deal is ART4MOM. With this coupon code, you’ll get a gift wrapped 16×20 canvas for $49.99. That’s 50% off, as Blacks normally offers this size of canvas for $99.99 and doesn’t include the free box for gift wrap.

If you want a larger size, there are two other coupon codes there that will get you up to $60 off larger canvases.

If Mom doesn’t need any more artwork, but could use some mugs, Blacks has a great deal on those too. This deal gives you four single image mugs, which you could give all to mom, or you could split the gift and give some to Grandma or your mother-in-law as well. Four mugs are normally $19.99 each, for a total of $80. With this deal, you’ll use coupon code MUGS4MOM and get four mugs for $39.99, in a gift wrapped box.

If a photobook is more up your alley, use coupon code BOOK4MOM to get an 8×11 hardcover photobook for only $29.99. The regular price for Blacks’ photo books of this size is $49.99.

You can ship to a Blacks store for free or a select Telus location. If you want to ship to your home, shipping varies depending on what you order. The artwork will ship for $9.99.

In order to get your items on time for Mother’s Day, check out the shipping schedule. To pick up in store, you’ll need to order by May 1st. These coupons coincidentally expire on that date.

(Save 50%) Canadian Gardening Magazine One Year Subscription Now Only $10 @ Wagjag

Posted by on April 3, 2015 at 2:00 PM

(Save 50%) Canadian Gardening Magazine One Year Subscription Now Only $10 @ Wagjag

Gardening season is coming soon and I cannot wait to get mine started. Get a jump-start on your garden with a subscription to Canadian Gardening magazine. Right now on Wagjag you can get a one year subscription for only $10 which is 50% off of what you would pay elsewhere. Shipping is included with this deal.

Ripe tomatoes, fresh herbs, crispy green beans and peas all sound delicious right now. I can hardly wait to be crunching them sitting in my backyard on a warm summer night. I never make a large garden, but I always plant some of my favourites.

Get some inspiration for your garden too and subscribe to Canadian Gardening magazine through this awesome deal through Wagjag. You will get a full year’s subscription, which includes six issues. With the subscription priced at only $10, you will pay only $1.67 per issue.

Between the pages you will find all kinds of helpful tips and tricks to start your garden and keep it going. Find out about the latest garden gear, learn how to grow your flowers and shrubs bigger, or consult the pages when you run into issues. I could have used a copy myself when squash bugs took over my zucchini last year. This would also make a great gift for Mother’s Day. A magazine subscription is a gift I always appreciate, and there is just something exciting about getting mail you are looking forward to.

I price compared this subscription around the web and here is what I found. Over on Canadian Garden’s website, you can subscribe for one-year for $19.95, which includes a free small tote. You could also subscribe through Rogers Magazine Service  where you will pay $19.95 for a one-year subscription. I am not sure exactly how much newsstand prices are, but according to Canadian Garden’s noted savings, issues would run you about $6.50 each on the newsstand or about $40 per year.

Over on Rogers Magazine Service many people are talking about this magazine. The magazine has 92 reviews and a four out of five star rating. Here is one reviewer who keeps coming back to this magazine:

This is a magazine you can keep to refer to for advice and suggestions time and again.

A second reviewer likes that the magazine has practical advice.

I really enjoy reading this magazine, not one of those “dream garden” references but actually includes tips and info for the “regular” gardener.

This deal will not last long, and they may run out of subscriptions before the expiry date. Right now over 250 people have picked up this sweet little deal. Grab your copy or a gift subscription before these magazines are gone.

Bargainmoosers, what do you grow in your garden?

Swarovski Canada: Free Crystallized Journal with $150 Purchase

Posted by on March 25, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Swarovski Canada: Free Crystallized Journal with $150 Purchase

Swarovski Canada never has sales, so we rely on free gift offers that come along once in a while. Currently, Swarovski Canada is offering a free Crystallized Fashion Journal when you place an order of $150 or more.

While Mother’s Day is not until May, you may want to start your shopping early. whether buying something for your mother or buying something for your wife who is a mother – jewellery tends to be a popular choice.

I like these Slake Deluxe bracelets. You can mix and match them by stacking one on top of another. Two bracelets would actually be quite substantial and look pretty good together. Each of the Slake Deluxe bracelets features beautiful Swarovski crystals on a leather wrap band. They also cost $79 each. I added two of these bracelets to my cart (both pink) and the journal was automatically added on.

Swarovski Canada: Free Crystallized Journal with $150 Purchase

The free gift is available in limited quantities. You will see it added to your cart if the promotion is still on when you make a purchase. As you are spending $150 or more, you will receive a few other benefits:

  • Free Shipping
  • Free Gift Bag
  • Free Greeting Card

The first benefit is automatic: all orders of $120 or more ship free. The free gift basket and the free greeting card you will select in your cart page. Just check the boxes that say, “I would like a free…” to receive these freebies as well. I think adding a greeting card and the gift bag makes receiving a piece of Swarovski even more special.

There are plenty of beautiful Swarovski items to buy your significant other. I like the idea of purchasing a set rather than one item and then the recipient having to complete the collection. This Backstage Round Set costs $169, thus it would qualify for the free crystallized journal. The set is available in two colours: gold and white. Some of the other sets are super small, whereas this set has a nice size to it for a good price.

The Cathy Set is a limited edition necklace and bracelet set. I think it is a good alternative to the Backstage Set if your significant other does not wear earrings or would just prefer a bracelet. The set retails for $160.

There is no need to add the free journal to your cart, it will be automatically added for you.

Flowers Canada Coupon Code: Free Shipping (Saves $15)!

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Flowers Canada Coupon Code: Free Shipping (Saves $15)!

When it comes to ordering flowers online in Canada, there are quite a few stores to choose from, such as 1800flowers or Canaflora, to name a few. One which we don’t mention very often is Flowers Canada, which I believe is owned by 1800flowers anyway, according to the address on their privacy page. But I’ve spotted a very handy coupon code for Flowers Canada, which gets you free shipping on ANY order right now! Free shipping is always an excellent offer, so I thought I’d blog it up to let you all know about the deal.

Click here to use the Flowers Canada coupon code online

  • Coupon Code: spr2015a
  • Discount: Free shipping
  • Expires: Unknown

The usual cost of shipping and handling from Flowers Canada is a flat rate of $14.99, as far as I can see. This coupon code removes that $14.99 from any order, so it’s a great discount amount. For example, these Love’s Embrace Pink Roses which are $19.99 would be eligible for the offer of free shipping. I tested them in my cart and free shipping was applied. So, it doesn’t matter how low the value of the flowers or gifts you are buying, all would come with free shipping.

Under $40

This is the link to the page of items which are all under $40 on Flowers Canada. The coupon code should work on any of these gifts. A few more examples from there:

Mother’s Day is not that far away – it’s on the 10th of May 2015. When you come across coupon codes like this, it can be good to plan ahead in advance and possibly place an order now. However, I tried to do that with some flowers in my cart and it only allowed me to select a delivery date up to the end of April, I couldn’t select a May date just yet. If you would like to use this coupon code for Mother’s Day flowers, check back in a few weeks to see if you can order then.

Cabelas Canada: Hatley Aprons Were $25 | Now $15 (+ Shipping)

Posted by on January 13, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Cabelas Canada: Hatley Aprons Were $25 | Now $15 (+ Shipping)

If you are looking for a great gift idea for a birthday, wedding shower or for your favourite home cook, look no further than this deal from Cabelas. Get some cute and funny Hatley aprons now with a regular price of $25, now for $14.99.

These aprons would also make great Father’s Day gifts, which I know is a few months away, but why not shop ahead and get Dad something he’ll appreciate? I know most men love the BBQ, but BBQ sauce and men just don’t mix. They inevitably will get their favourite top stained, so why not cover up those dress clothes with an apron, especially one as funny as this.

Mother’s Day is also coming soon and as a mom of three boys, wearing an apron in the kitchen is a must-have. In fact, I should wear one all the time as by the end of the day I’m usually covered in some type of unidentified spots and stains.

There are three styles available, as the fourth is sold out already.

My favourite, of course, is the Making a Moose in the Kitchen. I would totally love it if my boys gave me this apron for mother’s day as its true, I do love to cook.

My hubby would love the Bear Naked Chef apron, as he likes to tell inappropriate jokes all of the time and the bear kind of looks like him.

The last is a beaver who is a Dam Great Cook and I know the kid’s grandpa would love this one, although I’ll make the disclaimer now that the beaver looks nothing like him.

I shopped around for these aprons and found them for the full price on Hatley’s site.

If you want to get these shipped to your house, your order under $25 will have a $8.95 fee on top. That still beats the price at Hatley (which would also have shipping charges tacked on). If you have one near you, you could also pick up at store for free at your leisure. Alternatively, use coupon code 99SHIPFREE for free shipping when spending $99 or more.

Yogurtys Canada: B1G1 Free Fro-Yo For Mom

Posted by on May 11, 2014 at 7:00 AM

Yogurtys Canada: B1G1 Free Fro Yo For Mom

Treat Mom to some delicious frozen yogurt at Yogurtys today as you can buy one and get hers for free.

I absolutely adore frozen yogurt and loving going to get that treat with my kiddos. This deal is the perfect one for me, although I think a better deal would be for all my kids to get their yogurt free, since I have three kids. This deal is perfect for any Mom, young or old, new or experienced. It looks like this deal will be on the 16oz cup format and your purchase has to be $5 or more, which I’m sure is not hard to do.

Take a look at the menu before you go so you can drool a little with over 150 flavours of self-serve frozen yogurt and lots of yummy, nutritious and not-so toppings. What I like to do is put every single flavour in my cup so I try a bit of each. Then I add toppings that are healthy and ones that are just for fun. My favourites are chia seeds or broken chocolate bars. Its all about balance, you know.

Which should I get? Creme brulee or dulce de leche heaven? Give me S’mores or lucky mint white chocolate? I know – orange cream or salted caramel!

Warrior Dash Canada Promo Code: 50% Off The Race For Mother’s Day

Warrior Dash Canada Promo Code: 50% Off The Race For Mothers Day

If you are looking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift for Mom (or your wife or yourself), consider torturing her by signing her up for the Warrior Dash! Right now with promo code, you’ll get 50% off the cost of the race.

Click here to register @ Warriordash.com now

  • Coupon Code: MUDDYMOM
  • Discount: 50% off
  • Expiry: 12th May 2014

I’ve done this race for the last two years and am opting out this year, as I’m not in the shape I was the first year. I do highly recommend it to anyone who wants to challenge themselves and have some fun doing it. The Warrior Dash is a mud race, where you’ll also encounter some obstacles, some hills and of course some mud. You can use this code for any location, but if you are in Ontario, the location is Horseshoe Valley.

Anyone over a certain age can do this race, so it is great for mother/daughter, mother/son, husband/wife or just someone alone. I saw groups sticking together, I saw individuals flying through, and I saw many couples helping each other along. The first year I did it with a group of ladies, but ended up getting to the finish line on my own. The second year I did it with our money-saving blogger Heather, who was in much better shape than me, but we stuck together to support each other. No matter your age or shape, this is a race for you. You can run or walk and you can skip the obstacles if you need to as well. The mud really isn’t that bad, and I actually found the swim through it exhilarating.

The regular cost of the race is $70, but with this coupon code, you’ll only pay $35, which really is a steal!

Thrifty Foods: Free Mother’s Day Cake

Posted by on May 8, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Thrifty Foods: Free Mothers Day Cake

Back in April, we told you about getting free birthday cake for your child from Thrifty Foods. This time around, they are offering a free cake for mom for Mother’s Day.  The first 200 people in each of their locations that want a free cake for mom will get one.

Here is how the freebie will work. If you have a child that is 12 years old or younger, bring them into your local Thrifty Foods to the bakery.  The first 200 kids that qualify will get a decorated cake for mom absolutely free for Mother’s day. There is a limit on one cake per child per family while supplies last.

This is a perfect little Mother’s day treat that your kids can get mom free of charge!  I have a feeling that these free cakes will not last all the way until Mother’s day so make sure to go early.  You can just put it in your fridge to keep it cold. You can even surprise mom early with the cake if you want to.  You don’t have to wait until Mother’s day to give it to her!

If you are looking for Mother’s day gift ideas, check out more on our forum.

Marcelle Canada: 40% Off Everything & Free Shipping

Marcelle Canada: 40% Off Everything & Free Shipping

Get 40% off everything you can at Marcelle, and free shipping right now just in time for Mother’s Day.

Get your makeup and get it shipped too! My mom is a big makeup person. It is rare for anyone outside of close family to see her without her makeup. She loves wearing it and buying it and I’m sure she’d love it as a gift. While this sale is for Mother’s Day, I saw some really tiny print that says that it may not ship in time for Mother’s Day and being that today is already Thursday, I definitely wouldn’t count on it. That doesn’t mean you can’t shop.

When you try new products, you always take a bit of a risk that you might not like it. I find it so helpful when the products are best sellers, or even better, award winners, because it tells me that a lot of other people liked this product. In this case, majority rules. That doesn’t mean you’ll love it because others did, but the chances are a lot better. This New-Age 8 in 1 power serum won a title at this year’s Elle Beauty Grand Prix. I think that says a lot. With this sale you can save over $13 on it too and pay only $20.37 instead of $33.95.

I think a very inexpensive and useful gift for mom could be a new lip gloss. With lots of colours, this one will only set you back $6.57, was $10.95.

For more free shipping, no minimum deals, take a look at our Free Shipping page.

Chapters Indigo Canada: Up to 76% Off Select Jewellery

Chapters Indigo Canada is offering up to 76% off some absolutely stunning necklaces, bracelets and more, which would make great gifts for Mother’s Day.

This Cyrstal Deco Necklace – Coral-and-Beige  was $98, and is now $24.50. It is a pretty funky necklace for those who love fun and bold statement jewellery. One reviewer mentioned that the stones are mounted on felt so the necklace is not flexible: the shape it is in (a ‘V’) is the shape it will stay in.

The Teardrop Jewel Necklace – Multi-coloured  reminds me of Christmas lights strung up around a house around that most jolly of all holidays. It also makes a lovely necklace and is on sale from $48 down to $12.

The Crystal Bracelet – Red  was $64 and is now $16. It is on an adjustable band so whether your wrist is big or small it should fit just fine. If large jewels are not your thing, then try out the Cara Spike Diamante Bracelet – Silver which was $24 and is now $6. This bracelets says ‘rocker chick’ like no other and is very reasonably priced.

A lot of the bracelets are already sold out but the necklaces tend to still be in stock.

Get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.
