Costco Canada Freebie: 2 Free General Admission Movie Tickets With Gold Star Or Executive New Membership

Here at Bargainmoose, we frequently write about amazing deals at Costco and if you’re not a member yet, then what are you waiting for? Costco has an awesome sign-up bonus right now: if you sign up right now, then you can use one of the following Costco promo codes to also receive 2 general admission movie tickets for absolutely free.

Click here to get the Gold Star Membership @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: GSWEB66
  • Discount: 2 free general admission movie tickets
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

Click here to get the Executive Membership @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: EXEC76
  • Discount: 2 free general admission movie tickets
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

While the Gold Star membership is $55 and grants you basic access to Costco’s membership, the Executive one is $110 and includes additional perks like a 2% annual reward (up to $750) and discounts on car rentals, credit card processing etc. The two general admission movie tickets will be sent by mail and even better is that they will both be eligible for SCENE points.

Not to be biased or anything but I’m a huge Costco fan and enjoy visiting their warehouse every week to take advantage of the various deals. Just last week, I bought a fantastic 8-pc colourful knife set for only $19.99! In fact, I just wrote about a great deal on $130 off a Graco 5-pc soho squares set that is now on sale for just $590 (reg. $720) and which could up to over $900 if the items were to be individually purchases elsewhere! The great part about shopping online at Costco is that shipping and handling are also absolutely free, unlike other stores, which charge outrageous shipping fees for big ticket items.

If you’re a huge movie buff, then you should also know that Costco has a variety of movie ticket packages such as the Cineplex Night Out movie package for just $24.99. It comes with 2 general admission tickets, 2 regular soft drinks and 1 regular popcorn.

Unfortunately, this freebie is only valid for new memberships and can’t be used on renewals; otherwise I would have definitely already redeemed it on the Transformers: Age of Extinction movie (pictured on the image above).

Which movie are you most looking forward to see in theatres this summer?

Watch a Free Preview of Guardians of the Galaxy on IMAX 3D

Posted by on July 2, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Watch a Free Preview of Guardians of the Galaxy on IMAX 3D

Want to see 17 minutes of the not-yet release Guardians of the Galaxy absolutely free in IMAX 3D? Well, just go to See it First and reserve your tickets in your Canadian (or U.S.) city.

Guardians of the Galaxy is not due for release until August 1st, but if you are really antsy about seeing it, you can preview 17 minutes of it this July at select theatres. Thanks to My Bulging Wallet, we heard about this free deal and wanted to pass it on to you.

While this type of Marvel movie is not up my alley, I know many, many people who would be very interested in getting a sneak preview. I also have it that they may be giving out free posters to those who attend the free screening. If you like Iron Man, Thor and all those hot and sweaty guys (ok, maybe this is a movie for me), you’ll love the new team of Guardians of the Galaxy.

It looks like you can only go to one screening and here is a short list of what’s available in Canada:

  • Halifax – at Cineplex Cinemas Bayers Lake
  • Hamilton –  at Cineplex SilverCity Ancaster
  • London – at Cineplex SilverCity London
  • Montreal – at Cineplex Cinema Banque Scotia Montreal
  • Ottawa – at Cineplex SilverCity Glouester
  • Toronto – at Landmark Cinemas 24 Whitby (other Toronto tickets are unavailable)
  • Victoria – at Cineplex SilverCity Victoria
  • Winnipeg – at Cineplex SilverCity Polo Park

Cities like Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, plus other Toronto tickets are sold out or unavailable. You may want to check back to see if more come available.

All shows are on Monday, July 7th at 7pm.

Amazon Canada: Buy Select Hilarious Movies and Get $10 Off To See 22 Jump Street

Posted by on June 18, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Buy Select Hilarious Movies and Get $10 Off To See 22 Jump Street

I marked last Friday on my calendar because it was the day Channing Tatum and I had a date. Well, he was on the screen and I was in the theatre, but that’s a date! Any time spent with Channing is a good time, and since he brought his friends Jonah Hill and Ice Cube, it was definitely a party. I saw the new 22 Jump Street movie and there were parts where I was holding my gut I was laughing so hard. As if you need a reason to go see 22 Jump Street, but Amazon is giving you an extra one. Buy select movies in DVD or Blu-Ray and you’ll get a Cineplex code to get $10 off the cost of seeing 22 Jump Street.

The best part of this deal isn’t even getting the $10 off, the selection of movies are all can’t miss movies that you really need to see. Even if you have seen them, owning a copy and watching them again and again really can’t be a bad thing. Many of them star our friend Channing Tatum, but they are mostly just hilarious movies.

My favourites:

21 Jump Street – seriously, you need to see this. Was $14.99, now $9.83.

The Other Guys – staring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg (who is my other long lost love), is probably my second most favourite movie (after 21 Jump Street). The tuna fish part kills me. This is on sale too, now only $11.49, with a regular price of $19.99.

About Last Night/St. Elmo’s Fire – this one is quite different from the rest of the list, but About Last Night was one of my favourite movies as a teen. I remember wishing that things could work out. This one is on sale for $11.49, with a regular price of $19.99.

Once your movie ships, you’ll be emailed your code to use on the Cineplex website to get your tickets for the show online. You have until August 31st to see the movie once you get the code.

Shipping is free on orders over $25.

Amazon Canada: 75% Off Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection (Now $17 | Was $70)

Posted by on June 5, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 75% Off Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection (Now $17 | Was $70)

Yippee-ki-yay Moosers! Amazon.ca has discounted the Die Hard 25th Anniversary collection set by 75%! For a limited time, you can get it for just $17.49 instead of $69.99.

I can guarantee that almost any father is a huge Die Hard fan and most importantly, is a die hard fan of Bruce Willis. Along with tons of bonus features, this collection comes with the following 5 discs:

  • Die Hard
  • Die Hard 2: Die Harder
  • Die Hard with a Vengeance
  • Live Free or Die Hard
  • Decoding Die Hard

The Die Hard franchise is an absolutely iconic one and to get all of these movies such as low price is definitely a steal and one that you don’t want to miss, especially since they’re of Blu-ray quality.In fact, this review sums it up the best:

A “must have” for any true Die Hard fan. Just the right balance of fast action, adventure, violence, and humor.

The only hitch is that this collection doesn’t include the latest film in the series: A Good Day to Die Hard. Luckily, a DVD and Blu-ray combo of A Good Day to Die Hard is currently on sale for just $11.49 (reg. $41.99), which is a 73% discount!

Since shipping is only free on orders over $25, be sure to add a filler item. There are plenty of discounts on movies and TV shows right now, such as the Bond 50 Blu-ray 23-film collection set for 70% off. At just $89.99 (reg. $299.99), it comes with all of the Bond films from Dr. No to Skyfall, along with a bonus disc with Skyfall videoblogs, videos on the World of Bond and much more.

Even the final season of Breaking Bad has been reduced to just $25 instead of $55.99 (55% off). A spectacular show like no other, if you haven’t watched it yet, then you definitely need to get cracking on it, especially since you can get season 1 for $15 (reg. $26.99), season 2 for $14.84 (reg. $26.99), season 3 for $15 (reg. $26.99) and season 4 for $10 (reg. $45.99).

Amazon Canada: 67% Off Saw Movie Pack (+ Up To 70% Off Other Movie Packs)

Posted by on June 1, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 67% Off Saw Movie Pack (+ Up To 70% Off Other Movie Packs)

Are you a Saw fan? Then make sure to grab the Saw pack at Amazon right now because for a limited time, you can get a pack of Saw I, Saw II and Saw III for just $10.49. This Blu-ray edition is ordinarily priced at $31.99, which means you will be saving 67% off!

But since Saw definitely isn’t for everyone’s tastes, be sure to also have a look at the other movie packs currently on sale, such as the following, although there are more:

With The Expendables 3 coming out in August 2014, now would definitely be a fantastic opportunity to re-watch (or maybe even watch for the first time) the first two The Expendables movies as both are available in a pack for just $15.49 instead of $24.99. I have seen both and must admit that although the movies are cheesy in a way, they are nevertheless amusing to watch, especially with all the big name actors such as: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger and yes, even Chuck Norris. In fact, the third instalment will even feature new additions to the cast like Wesley Snipes. Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson and many others!

The Romantic Comedies movie pack from the list above is definitely another great pick since each movie comes up to just $1.92. The pack includes: Mr. Wrong, Born Yesterday, Two Much, The Gun in Betty Lou’s Handbag, Gross Anatomy and Betty’s Wedding.

Some of the movie packs currently on sale are only available in limited quantities, so be sure to order quick. As usual, shipping is free on orders over $25.

Moosers, we would love to hear from you! What are you favourite movies?

Amazon Canada: $5 Blu Ray Movies

Posted by on May 31, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Amazon Canada: $5 Blu Ray Movies

You read that right: Amazon Canada is selling a handful of movies on Blu ray for only $5 each. So if your movie collection needs a little expanding, check out this sweet little sale for cheap blu rays.

These are not the most obscure titled movies either. Okay, well, some of them are. But there are some movies in here that I know of quite well and that friends of mine own.

There are nine titles to choose from:

My favourite title on the list is “All The King’s Men” as it stars one of my favourite actors of all time: Anthony Hopkins. I just adore the guy. There are some other interesting titles in this collection though. I have heard a ton of good things about Bulletproof Monk, and I think my husband might even own the movie on DVD. Pathfinder seems to be a cult favourite among some people and I have been debating watching it for a while.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Hypothetically, if you buy five of these movies (excluding D&D) you would get free shipping.

Amazon Canada: How The Earth Changed History Blu-Ray $24.99

Amazon Canada: How The Earth Changed History Blu Ray $24.99

Amazon Canada is my go-to place for entertainment usually, and they rarely disappoint. Right now they have the BBC series “How the Earth Changed History” (Blu Ray) with Iain Stewart on sale from $43.98 down to just $24.99.

Oh my goodness, I can barely type about this series without screaming my wee little head off. See, this series was on my birthday wishlist if it fell below $26, which it now has, and so my hubby has bought it for me for my birthday: *WEEE*! I am a massive BBC Nature fan and my first love was Iain Stewart’s Earth Biography series. It was the catalyst for our vacations to New Zealand and Iceland. I know, massive fangirl here.

So, to find that he did another series for the BBC, and that it was on sale for such a reasonable price made my heart nearly stop. I price compared this series with HMV, which sells the blu-ray for $35, Chapters has it for $35.18, and the BBC Shop itself has it for $35.98. You are saving an extra $10 on their prices.

The series is structured around water, wind (air), fire, and deep earth which plays nicely with the four elements. The fifth episode focuses on human interaction with the planet. I know the first four episodes are one hour each, and I assume the fifth episode is as well, so you get five hours of glorious footage and fantastic narration for only $24.99.

Cineplex Canada: 3 Free Gifts with $30 Gift Card Purchase

Posted by on May 5, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Cineplex Canada: 3 Free Gifts with $30 Gift Card Purchase

When you spend $30 on Cineplex gift cards either at the box office or online you will receive three free bonus gifts.

When you buy your $30 worth of gift cards you will receive:

  • A buy one get one free admission (including 3D, UltraAVX, IMAX®, or VIP)
  • Free small popcorn
  • Free SD digital movie rental

As an added bonus, you will also receive 100 Scene points.

Now, it says this deal is available until the end of June but it also says “while quantities last” so I suggest you pick it up sooner rather than later to make sure you get your sweet little bonuses. You cannot use e-gift cards or gift cards to purchase the $30 worth of gift cards to get the bonus offers – just in case you were wondering.

This is a pretty cool offer and I like that the BOGO free admission includes all the fancy movies/theatre options so you don’t have to pay the extra surcharge. While a small popcorn isn’t much, it does make a very nice snack for those of us who don’t often buy snacks at the theatre. Also, I have never tried the Cineplex movie rental system so this would be a good way to check it out.

Cineplex Canada: $2.50 Family Favourites

Posted by on May 1, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Cineplex Canada: $2.50 Family Favourites

Cineplex Canada is offering family favourite movies for just $2.50 every Saturday morning at 11:00 am during the months of May and June.

The next movie is Robots with the fantastic voice acting of a personal favourite: Robin Williams. That movie is scheduled for May 3rd, and tickets are on sale now.

Here is the rest of the movie schedule for May and June:

  • May 10: Tooth Fairy
  • May 17: Diary of a Wimpy Kid
  • May 24: March of the Penguins
  • May 31: Madagascar 2
  • June 7: Dr Seuss’ The Lorax
  • June 14: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
  • June 21: The Adventures of TinTin
  • June 28: Jetsons: The Movie

I think my husband plans to go see Harry Potter, and I might go see both Harry Potter and TinTin. I love TinTin and used to watch the cartoons on TV, even when they were on the French channel and I didn’t understand a word. I am not a big Harry Potter fan, but I really like the first movie and the concepts it introduced to my fantasy world.

These movies are a great buy at only $2.50 a person. A family of four can go for just $10. What movies do you want to see in theater again?

Amazon Canada: Movies & TV Shows for $5 or Less

Amazon Canada has a pretty spectacular deal right now on some of their movies and TV shows DVDs.  You will be able to find a ton of them all for under just $5!

You will find a great mixture of older movies and newer movies and all of them are $5 or less.  There is also a great mixture of movies and TV shows for the young and young at heart.

If you are looking for a great romantic comedy, check out Friends with Benefits that was $14.99 and is now just $5. It has eye candy for the women with Justin Timberlake and for the men with Mila Kunis which makes it a great date night movie.

If you are looking for more of a family movie, I suggest The Princess Bride 20th Anniversary Edition that was $15.58 and is now just $5.  It has humour that is perfect for both young and old making it a great family night movie to watch. It was actually one of my favourite movies growing up and it is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again.

As for some of the TV shows, they are mainly older shows or kids shows.  One of my kids favourite shows called Thomas and Friends: Rescue on the Rails is included and at just $5 now (it was $9.99) it is sure to be a hit with the toddlers. At 50% off the regular price, it is very affordable now!

You will notice that there are more movies than TV shows but with a selection of a few hundred deals to choose from, there is something for everyone.

You will get free shipping when your order is $25 or more.

Amazon.ca: Up to 68% Off BBC Nature Collections

Amazon.ca: Up to 68% Off BBC Nature Collections

Happy Earth Day! For a select time get up to 68% off select BBC nature collections from Amazon.ca in celebration of this marvelous planet.

There are some incredible deals on some of the lesser known BBC nature disks. Be sure to pick up Galapagos [Blu-ray] for only $16.99, originally $34.99 during this sale. The Galapagos Islands are one of Earth’s most wondrous places because they are teaming with life not found anywhere else on earth. They are also home to the most northern penguins on the planet.

Next on my list on suggestions is Yellowstone: Battle for Life [Blu-ray] that was $30.98 and is now $16.99. I own this set and it really puts into perspective the delicate balance of the park. I loved learning about the wolves of Yellowstone and the part they play to maintain the delicate balance within the park.

On my wishlist is Madagascar [Blu-ray] which was $43.98 and is now $19.99. David Attenborough has a real passion for Madagascar and I have heard it shows in this series. There is also a special hour-long extra on disc two called “Attenborough and the Giant Egg” which talks about egg shell fragments he received and the fascinating story that goes along with them.

Amazon Canada: BBC Life Blu-Ray $30 (Was $87.48)

Amazon Canada: BBC Life Blu Ray $30 (Was $87.48)

We blog a lot about the Planet Earth series because it is a renown set of disks that has captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences everywhere. Yet, there are many other offerings by the BBC team and they have a great deal on another well celebrated title: Life. Originally $87.49, the BBC Life series in blu ray is on sale for just $29.99.

This is the original UK version which is voiced by the amazing David Attenborough. I’m totally bias when I say this is the best version because the American version has Oprah narrating and I think David’s voice is far better.

This series is all about animals (and plants) and how they stay alive, evolve, migrate, copulate, and live. I own this series but have not had time to watch it yet because of university. I am seriously excited about my summer this year as I will get to sit down and catch up on beauties in my collection like this one.

Now it seems like everyone has put this series on sale this weekend but they are vastly running out of stock. I checked online at BestBuy and Futureshop, which each have less than 10 copies left. Those are going to be sold out awfully quick. I also checked the non blu-ray version at each of the places (which is not on sale) and it costs $60.99. That is pretty much the price you will usually pay for this series when it is not on sale. This deal is pretty hot, coming from someone who watches the BBC sets like a hawk, so pick it up while it is still in stock.

Amazon Canada: Frozen DVD Only $13

Amazon Canada: Frozen DVD Only $13

Amazon has a terrific deal on Disney’s Frozen on DVD. This amazing movie is only $13, was $35.99. I know that it has never been this low and was just recently released, so if you haven’t picked this one up yet, you need to now. Even if you’ve already picked it up, this would be a good time to get your second copy.

Frozen has really been clogging my Facebook feeds for a while. The hype has not died down from either the kids or the adults and I even think I’ve heard Let It Go while walking down the aisles of the grocery store. My kids totally love this movie and yesterday they watched it again for the billionth time and my youngest son was jumping up and down yelling “Frozen! Frozen!”.

This movie has captivated people so much, it has won awards and adults are giddy about how great it is. I did watch it and liked it, although MegaMind will always be my favourite kids movie. This one really is feel-good though.

If the movie isn’t the deal for you, but you love Frozen, did you know Amazon has a Frozen store? They do! I found a number of sales in there on books, toys and dolls. I’d love my own Olaf doll.

Shipping is free when you spend $25, so you might as well pop into the Frozen store and pick up one more thing to save the fees. Also, I wouldn’t wait, Amazon is notorious for deals selling out mega-quick.

Amazon Canada: True Blood Seasons 4 & 5 Only $18 Each

Amazon Canada is selling True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season and Fifth Season for only $17.97 each. Originally these seasons cost $74.98 each.

While most seasons are not selling for their full original retail price anymore, they still do cost quite a bit. For example, season three costs $41.98 at Amazon right now and season six costs $44.99. For some reasons seasons four and five alone are on sale and it is certainly a deal worth getting. Do note that Amazon Canada has a habit of changing prices often, so this price could change at any moment.

Are you a True Blood fan? I think I got part way into episode one but was not in the mood and never picked it up again. I am a fairly big vampire fan (love Bella Lugosi) so I am thinking once I am done university I should try watching it again. Hot vampires and steamy love scenes, what’s not to like?

Get free shipping on orders of $25 or more so if you order both seasons you can get free shipping on your order.

Walmart Canada Movie Madness: Select Movie & TV Shows From $5

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

Walmart Canada Movie Madness: Select Movie & TV Shows From $5

Walmart’s Movie Madness is now on and for a limited time, you can save get select titles starting at just $5.

There is nothing like kicking back after along day at work and watching a good movie or TV show and since circumventing the law by downloading or streaming these is illegal, then you might as well save a bit of money by acquiring these titles the right way. Boring, I know, but at least you won’t risk getting a fine!

Here are just a couple of titles that you can get for less during Walmart’s Movie Madness:

Although the vast majority of these titles are significantly lower in price, make sure to price compare with Amazon and Best Buy because I found that the first season of the American Horror Story is more expensive by one penny on Amazon (it’s with French subtitles but those can easily be turned off). I know a penny isn’t going to break the bank but in the spirit of frugality, the point here is that it’s not a deal per se, despite being labelled as such.

Don’t forget that Walmart also ships everything for free with no required minimum!
