WalMart Canada: Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection On Blu-Ray | Was $70 Now $20

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 8:30 AM

WalMart Canada: Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection On Blu Ray | Was $70 Now $20

Yippee-ki yay! You can’t help but root for John McClane, the hard-nosed and sharp-tongued NYC detective that originally found himself in a situation where he had to save a bunch of hostages when he only planned to visit a Christmas party with his ex-wife. Them’s the breaks, eh John? WalMart is currently having a sweet sale on the Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection on Blu-Ray, where you’ll get 4 Die Hard movies: Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Die Hard With A Vengeance, and Live Free Or Die Hard. Normally $69.99, you can now purchase this set for only $19.87 and you’ll also get free shipping. This is one great deal for a Blu-Ray set!

I’ve always had an affinity for the Die Hard movies. They’re fun action flicks, they have some comedy due to the quick-witted John McClaine character, and they’re always entertaining. If you need something to watch one weekend, you should really consider picking up these movies. I actually used to own a Die Hard arcade machine (it was a pretty decent game, but I got it more for the novelty than for the actual game play), so it’s safe to say that I was a huge Die Hard fan when I was younger.

Although this set doesn’t include A Good Day To Die Hard, the latest 2013 instalment in the Die Hard series, this is still one heck of a deal.

If you went to Best Buy in America to buy this Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection On Blu-Ray, it would cost you $44.99 US. I’ve included an entertaining review of this box set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

I mean honestly, who doesn’t like the Die Hard series!? Even ladies like it, so why bother asking yourself “should I buy it,” and just buy it, it’ll be used for sure, and it never goes out of interest. Plus, the sound of it all is outstanding, the explosions and gun shots and yelling is all crystal clear and gives such an immense feeling of joy. It was a no brainer in the end.

This may not last for very long (quantities are limited), so check out this deal now. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 On Blu-Ray | Was $44 now $19

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 7:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 On Blu Ray | Was $44 now $19

Good morning, Bargainmoose readers! Today’s deal on Amazon is for the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 on Blu-Ray, and it’s a good one! We’ve recently seen Volume 1 on sale at Amazon (and it still is), but this is the first time that I’ve ever seen a substantial sale on Volume 2. Normally $43.98 on Amazon, you can now purchase the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 on Blu-Ray for $18.99 (plus $1.99 shipping). Now that’s a great price for 3 Blu-Ray discs packed with classic Looney Tunes cartoons!

The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 on Blu-Ray is a great set that features plenty of these classic Warner Brothers cartoons, including characters such as Bugs Bunny, Sylvester & Tweety, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and many others. What’s especially intriguing about the Blu-Ray version of this set is the extra Tex Avery cartoons that are included, which have been highly coveted for many years.

If you’re looking for something relaxing and nostalgic that you can play in the background when you’re busy around the house, or if you want to unwind and relax on a Sunday afternoon with something familiar, then you should consider picking up this set. I also recommend that you get The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 1, especially if you’ve ever enjoyed these cartoons when you were younger. They have aged quite well, and are still entertaining!

If you purchased the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Volume 2 at Best Buy in America, it would cost you $42.99 US. It’s getting hard to find this set on Blu-Ray nowadays (it’s not currently listed on Future Shop, Best Buy, or WalMart). I’ve included a brief review of this Blu-Ray set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

Watching these cartoons on a 72″ screen, fully restored in Blu-Ray is a real treat. The picture is nice and clean, the colours are vibrant. 

I hope you all have a great day today!

Amazon Canada: The Office: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $230 Now $90

Posted by on October 21, 2014 at 10:17 AM

Amazon Canada: The Office: The Complete Series On DVD | Was $230 Now $90

That’s what she said. Today’s deal at Amazon is for the complete series of The Office on DVD – normally selling for $229.99, you can now purchase this set for $89.99. You’ll also get free shipping with your order! The Office: The Complete Series on DVD is currently on sale for $139.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop.

Oh, how I loved The Office – its dry humour that gave us a glimpse into a, often-mismanaged Scranton, Pennsylvania paper company known as Dunder Mifflin was a ground-breaking show for its time. It intrigued me when I first watched it back in the mid-2000s, since I didn’t hear the obligatory laugh-track in between every joke on the show.

Remember when TV shows had to remind us when we were supposed to laugh? After watching The Office, it kind of ruined many shows with laugh-tracks for me (at least the newer ones – I will always love Seinfeld and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air).

Either way, I really enjoyed watching The Office. It was a thoroughly enjoyable series with memorable characters such as Dwight, Andy, and of course, Michael Scott (played by Steve Carrell). One of my favourite lines in the series is when Michael Scott (the manager of the Dunder Mifflin office in Scranton, PA) is trying to motivate his employees, and has the following inspirational line written down on chart paper: You miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take. -Wayne Gretzky -Michael Scott. 

The last few seasons aren’t as creative or hilarious as the earlier seasons, but they’re still fun to watch. Mindy Kaling of The Mindy Project also rose to prominence during her time on The Office. I’ve included a brief review of The Office: The Complete Series on DVD from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

Ordered for myself and my wife. It’s our favourite show. Hilarious, smart, and just perfect. Steve Carell is so funny.
The display is very nice and simple. Amazing!

Get this great DVD set before it’s sold out! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: More $5 Blu Rays

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Amazon Canada: More $5 Blu Rays

While shopping for new movies, I ran across a selection of Blu Ray movies for just $5 or less. You seriously cannot get a better deal on a Blu Ray movie unless someone gives one to you, so I thought I would share this awesome little find with my Moosers!

You can buy fourteen movies on Blu Ray for $5 apiece. I did a list like this back in May, so I thought I would point out the new additions to the section instead of going back over the ones that have been there for a while.  Without further ado, here they are:

As you can see, there is a nice new crop of $5 Blu Ray movies up for grabs along with seven others previously mentioned that are still available.

Your best savings is on the new Robocop, which is a cult classic movie about a dystopian society. It foretold the demise of Detroit (haha!). It is also quite famous for its commercials. I have never seen this movie, but upon asking my husband if Robocop was worth $5, he said it certainly was and probably was worth even more.

I recommend The Transporter as it is a fantastic action based movie and my father quite enjoys it. I love this reviewer’s comment:

So much action, in fact, that the story doesn’t matter. It plays like a young man’s fantasy – fast cars, things that blow up, and a pretty girl to decorate the scene. The English actor, Jason Statham, is cast as the cooler than cool hero.

I would be remiss if I did not mention House of the Dead right before Halloween. It is probably the worst horror movie you will ever watch judging by the reviews on Amazon. However, if you are a fan of the horror genre then you will probably watch it anyway and cringe all the way at the bad acting and the plot that makes absolutely no sense.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

This would be a very entertaining DVD set to have, especially if you’re a horror fan, or want to entertain your friends before Halloween. I remember first hearing about this movie in the early nineties, and while they were pretty silly (I mean, come on – one of the later movie titles is Leprechaun 4: In Space), you can’t go wrong with some cheesy horror flicks! I’d love to check out some of these with my girlfriend, especially after having a few glasses of wine! That’s a fine night of entertainment right there.

The Leprechaun: Pot Of Gore Collection DVD Set typically costs $37.59 on Shop.ca, and it’s currently $29.99 at Future Shop. I’ve included a brief review of this Leprechaun: Pot Of Gore Collection DVD Set from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

I have been waiting for this to be at a good price and finally, after a while of waiting it paid off. I am very happy to be the owner to them now – all 6 movies! Amazing, thank you Amazon Canada: Leprechaun Pot Of Gore Collection DVD Set | Was $47 Now $13

Free Movies on October 18th for Cineplex Community Day

Posted by on October 17, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Free Movies on October 18th for Cineplex Community Day

If you are looking for a fun family activity to do tomorrow, you are in luck.  Cineplex has their annual Community Day happening tomorrow October 18th.  Bring your family in to see a great movie tomorrow and every single person will be able to watch the movie for free.

Doors will be open at 8:30 am with a great selection of free movies beginning at 9:00am. Young or old, all admissions are free.  Additionally, you can enjoy a regular popcorn, regular fountain drink, and selected candy for just $2 each.  The regular size is easily share-able between two people. If you have been to a movie lately, you know what a great deal just $2 an item really is.

This Community Day is in honour of the Free the Children Foundation so 100% of the proceeds are donated to Free the Children Foundation! Not only will you be saving a lot of money and having a great day with your family, you will be making a difference when you buy your family treats and drinks.  It just does not get better than that.

If you are unfamiliar with the Free The Children Foundation, here is a little bit about it from the website.

 Free The Children is an international charity and educational partner that works with hundreds of thousands of elementary and secondary students from 5,000 schools across Canada and 2.3 million youth worldwide.

What a great cause to support!

The movies that you will be able to see are not listed online so you will have to head in to Cineplex to find out.  Since this is a Community Day and is geared towards families, I would assume they would most likely be family friendly.  Either way, it is a free activity so it is definitely worth checking out.

The Community Day was very popular last year so I suggest arriving right at 8:30am when the doors open to make sure you get in to see your movie.

Amazon Canada: Alien Anthology On Blu-Ray | Was $70 Now $18

Posted by on October 14, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Alien Anthology On Blu Ray | Was $70 Now $18

Just in time for Halloween, it’s the Alien movie collection on Blu-Ray for an incredible price! Today on Amazon, you can purchase the Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray for just $17.49 (plus $1.99 shipping). This Blu-Ray set normally retails for $69.99! You just can’t beat this price for this set. If you haven’t seen the Alien movies before, you owe it to yourself to check them out at least once – and you can do that by purchasing this set from Amazon.

The Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray contains 9 discs in total, and 4 Alien movies in total (8 different versions of the films in total are included in this set). With dozens of hours of archival footage and special features included, this would be a wonderful gift for fans of the Alien movies!

I remember watching Alien 3 when I was a kid, and that was quite the thriller! I remember wanting to see it because of the mass marketing of the movie that was going on at the time (1992, 1993) – heck, they even had a successful toy line available! That’s what lured me in. I also played the Alien 3 video game for the Super Nintendo (it was mediocre, but kind of fun for the time), so I wanted to check out the movie.

Those Aliens were definitely a lot more sinister looking in the movie than they were in the video games and the toys, that’s for sure! It was an exciting movie that I remembered for years, and when I was a teen, I watched the original Alien movies (Alien and Aliens), and they were mostly great… mostly (sorry Bargainmoosers, I had a need to include that terrible reference).

If you purchase this Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray set at Future Shop, it will cost you $44.99, and it’s $45 at WalMart (and out of stock). Listed below is a brief review of this Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray set from a satisfied Amazon customer:

The four films are better looking than ever on blu-ray. The special features are more in-depth than they’ve ever been. I particularly like the making of “Alien 3″ documentary, with all the restored footage of David Fincher’s issues with the studio, and learning all about the original screenplay that almost was (and would’ve been far better in my opinion). A true gift for fans of the series.

I hope you all enjoy your Tuesday, Bargainmoosers!

Cineplex Canada: 2-For-1 General Admissions (Quebec Only)

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

Cineplex Canada: 2 For 1 General Admissions (Quebec Only)

Quebec residents only: Cineplex has released an awesome 2-for-1 deal on general admission tickets!

Yes, Quebec is but one province in all of Canada, but it has the second largest population (Ontario is first) and being from Quebec myself, I just had to tell my fellow Quebecers about this amazing deal. It seems there aren’t too many perks associated with Quebec (I’m not even going to mention the taxes we pay) as all too often, Quebec is excluded from promotions, discounts and contests, but when a promotion is applicable to Quebec residents, it’s like Christmas came early. Or in this case, Cineplex is quite literally giving thanks to all of its Quebec movie goers in honour of Thanksgiving.

It’s probably just a coincidence that this BOGO deal launched right before the long Thanksgiving week-end but still, it’s awesome and if you live in Quebec, you need to take advantage of it before it’s too late.

It’s super easy to get it too. Just click on the link above and after you fill in your name and e-mail address, you will be able to print a ticket for the 2-for-1 deal. The only hitch is that the entire process will be in French. If you don’t speak/ write French, then look out for the yellow button saying: “Imprimer le coupon” once you fill in your information as this will allow you to print the ticket. Alternatively, you can also click the other yellow button next to it to “envoyer  à votre courriel” to have a promotional code sent to your e-mail.

As a devout Scene Rewards member and fan, I highly suggest that you have Cineplex e-mail you a promotional code that you can then use to buy your ticket online. Doing so will allow you receive 20 bonus points on top of the regular 100 points for seeing a movie. Accumulating 1000 Scene points will allow you to watch any movie in any format for free.

The only exclusion to this awesome deal is that you can’t use it to see a movie on Tuesday, which is probably because of the cheapie Tuesday deal. In case you didn’t already know, every Tuesday, Cineplex offers a 50% discount on all of their admissions and you can still get the same amount of points as usual.

Not sure what to watch? Gone Girl is currently a major box office hit, along with Annebelle and the Equalizer. A word of warning though, despite coming in second on the top box office list right now, Annabella hasn’t been generating the best reviews (6.1/ 10 on IMDB). Gone Girl, on the other hand, already has 8.6/ 10 on IMDB.

Amazon Canada: Looney Tunes: Platinum Collection Volume 1 On Blu-Ray | Was $66 Now $19

Posted by on October 11, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Looney Tunes: Platinum Collection Volume 1 On Blu Ray | Was $66 Now $19

Good morning, everyone! Amazon is having a really great deal on Looney Tunes: Platinum Collection Volume 1 Blu-Ray sets. Normally selling for $66, you can now get this Blu-Ray set for just $18.99 (plus $1.99 shipping). If you’ve ever been a fan of Looney Tunes cartoons, then you should check out this deal! In my opinion, these classic cartoon shorts are timeless, and can be watched multiple times (I know I did when I was younger and watched an hour of Looney Tunes every Saturday afternoon on Global).

This classic Blu-Ray collection features some nice extras, including a small book that details the history of several Looney Tunes characters, and even a small shot glass! This limited edition set is also numbered, and includes 3 Blu-Ray discs filled with classic cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, Daffy Duck, and others.

My girlfriend actually bought this exact set on Amazon approximately 18 months ago when it was on sale for roughly $32, and she’s still very happy with her purchase (even though today’s price for the Looney Tunes: Platinum Collection Volume 1 On Blu-Ray is lower, she was still able to save a decent amount of money). It’s a very cute set that would compliment any Blu-Ray collection!

At Future Shop, the Looney Tunes: Platinum Collection Volume 1 On Blu-Ray costs $53.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this classic collection of Looney Tunes cartoons from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

I absolutely love having this set. Nowadays, whenever you watch “The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show,” you get the same cycle of watered-down, ultra-politically correct cartoons. This set reminds me of what cartoons were about. The music, and special features regarding music are unreal! I feel like this set is more for die-hards rather than just the casual fan. Regardless, the enjoyment that it has provided myself and my family make it well worth the price.

This deal won’t last long, so check it out before it’s too late. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: The Resident Evil Collection On Blu-Ray | Was $96 Now $26 (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: The Resident Evil Collection On Blu Ray | Was $96 Now $26 (EXPIRED)

Do you want to see some films featuring flesh-eating zombies to prepare for Halloween this month? Well, if you’re familiar with the Resident Evil movies, then this deal for a Blu-Ray collection of the popular series just might encourage you to click on the link below! At this time, Amazon is having a sale on The Resident Evil Collection on Blu-Ray – its regular price is $95.99, but you can now purchase this set for just $25.99! That’s $70 off of the retail price! You’ll also get free shipping with your order – hooray!

The Resident Evil Collection on Blu-Ray comes with the following movies: Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Resident Evil: Extinction, Resident Evil: Afterlife, and Resident Evil: Retribution. That’s 5 movies in one great package – definitely plenty of horror and sci-fi for you to indulge in when you’re preparing for October 31st!

Originally spawned from the famous video game series created by Capcom, the Resident Evil films started to appear on the big screen back in 2002. The games where you had to shoot at hundreds of undead zombies that first appeared on the Sony Playstation and Sega Saturn systems developed so much of a following among fans and casual gamers alike that it eventually became a successful movie franchise.

When you see how the Super Mario Bros. and Street Fighter movies from 1994 turned out, it’s safe to say that it’s tough for a video game series to make it on the big screen (though the original Mortal Kombat movie from 1995 was a lot of fun to watch, and had some success). The fact that the Resident Evil movie series is still being worked on (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will apparently be released in 2016) just shows how successful it has become.

This set is currently on sale at Best Buy for $44.99 (though only 1 set is still in stock as of this writing). I’ve included some brief reviews from satisfied Amazon customers below:

Makes for epic marathon viewing, though the plot is not excatly involved. Comes in a reasonable quality package that will keep the five discs tidy.

Great deal on a great set of movies. Been looking forward to watching these films and they sure don’t disappoint.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day, Bargainmoosers!

Landmark Cinemas Canada Printable Coupon: 2-For-1 General Admission

Posted by on October 5, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Landmark Cinemas Canada Printable Coupon: 2 For 1 General Admission

Go see a movie tonight or tomorrow at Landmark Cinemas and take advantage of a BOGO printable coupon to get two general admissions for the price of one.

While this is a hot offer, this is also one that expires really soon, so if you were thinking of going to see a movie either tonight or tomorrow, then make sure to use the printable coupon! Keep in mind that Landmark Cinemas aren’t as country-wide as Cineplex but they are still available in numerous of the major cities like Victoria, Surrey, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, etc. Sorry Eastern provinces, there are no Landmark Cinemas in Quebec or any of the maritime provinces but here’s to hoping that some pop up soon!

My hubby and I love going to the movies but paying nearly $50 for two general admission tickets, a popcorn, a drink and sometimes even a chocolate is just beyond outrageous. This is why we tend to only go on Tuesday in order to take advantage of the cheapie Tuesday deal at most movie theatres but sometimes, it is great to go see a movie on a day or night when it isn’t as packed.

Speaking of movies, did you hear about the recent partnership between Miramax and Netflix? Next summer, the sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon will simultaneously come out in theatres and in Netflix. It will be available on the same day for viewing in either theatres or at home (as long as you have a Netflix subscription). This is an unprecedented move and one that I hope won’t be the last!

If you’re not sure what to watch, then might I suggest Gone Girl? I haven’t seen it yet but countless positive reviews have been pouring in for this mystery thriller film starring Ben Affleck, Carrie Coon, Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris. In fact, even Tyler Perry is in it! Alternatively, Guardians of the Galaxy is definitely worth watching as well, especially in 3D. I had the pleasure of watching this movie when it first came out and although I was a bit on the fence about whether I would enjoy a movie with so many seemingly random characters (i.e. there is a talking raccoon and a walking tree with the vocabulary consisting of just 3-4 words) but I absolutely loved it! There are plenty of funny moments to keep both kids and adults entertained the entire time.

Save Money on Movie Rentals in Canada

Posted by on October 3, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Save Money on Movie Rentals in Canada

With Blockbuster and Rogers Video store standing vacant and empty, to me, Friday nights just aren’t the same anymore.  I miss Blockbuster and Rogers Video stores.

I am obviously going through video store withdrawal even though I have Netflix available at home.  I find that the movies that I want to watch aren’t often on Netflix and I don’t really know where to watch them or access them without going to the illegal route of downloading them from some torrent site.

Here are a few ways in which you can replicate that old feeling of perusing the movies for a suitable movie to rent and enjoy with some buttered popcorn at home.

Red Box 

This is probably the closest thing to Blockbuster as you can get.  You have probably seen one of these red boxes at your local Safeway or 7-Eleven stores.  Although you can’t physically touch the DVDs in the Red Box box, they are certainly very cheap to rent (unless you are bad at returning the DVD back to the box in which case it will be expensive).  If you download the Red Box app you can check your local Red Box’s inventory to save you the hassle of going there and realizing that the movie you want to watch is not available. In addition, if you sign up for their texting service/reminders they often text you a free coupon code for a free movie rental on a monthly basis.

At $1.50 plus tax for a movie rental (but just for the night) and with the ability to browse online and hold your rental, Red Box is a great substitute for Blockbuster.  The one downside is that it will be difficult to find older movies that you have been meaning to watch.

Check Out your Public Library

Another great option that is absolutely free is to check out your local public library for some movies.  Some public libraries nowadays even allow digital movie rentals (meaning you won’t even have to visit the library in person).

Netflix

Of course, the popular option is to go with Netflix.  With recent movie titles and tons of options for movies and even television series, this option is the way to go if you ever want to cancel cable.  I pay $7.99 per month (though I believe they are raising their fees) for a lot of movies and television shows (a little too much option if you ask me).

For me the downside is that there are some movies that I have been wanting to watch but they are not available on Netflix when I search them up.

Apple TV

With this, you have to pay $99+ for an Apple TV device first, but it allows you to download or stream movies on demand.  The selection is pretty good but I found that it took a long time to download and rent the movie (maybe it was just my Internet at the time) and when I had friends over watching the movie, I didn’t download the movie quickly enough.  Also, the cost for renting a movie is about $5 or so depending on which movie you want to watch.  The good thing was that there is a pretty decent selection.  I remember looking up Roman Holiday or Breakfast at Tiffany’s and was able to find that.  Definitely would not be able to do that on a Red Box kiosk.

CinemaNow

I personally haven’t tried watching a movie through this system but I am excited to do so and plan to do so.  I was able to find a movie that I have been wanting to watch for a long time but was not able to find it on Netflix and I do not have Apple TV anymore.  Renting a movie gives you access to watch it for 30 days and you have 48 hours to finish the movie before it disappears from your account (which is similar to Apple TV I believe).  The cost is $3.99 for the movie I want to watch.  For new releases, the rental fee is $4.99.  You can also buy the movies you want to watch as well (obviously more expensive than $4-5).

 Bargainmoosers, how do you watch your movies nowadays?  Which one is your favourite?

Cineplex Family Favourites $2.50 Movies for October, November & December

Cineplex Family Favourites $2.50 Movies for October, November & December

If you are looking for something fun and inexpensive to do with your family for the the rest of the year on the weekend, you will want to checkout Cineplex Canada.  They are offereing awesome Family Favourite movies for just $2.50 every Saturday morning at 11:00 am.

Each movie will cost just $2.50 a person no matter how young or old you are.  That is a pretty big difference from the regular price of up to $15.99 a person depending on the theater. All of the family favourites are movies that have already been in the movie theaters and are coming back for a second showing. Some of them are actually in 3D and are still just $2.50 a person. They have released the list of Family Favourite movies for every Saturday until the end of the 2014 year and there are some pretty great ones.

Here is a look at all of the great movies you will be able to see for just $2.50 for the months of October, November and December:

  • October 4th: Evan Almighty
  • October 11th: Nanny McPhee Returns
  • October 25th: Despicable Me 2
  • November 1st: Rango
  • November 8th: Hotel For Dogs
  • November 15th: How To Train Your Dragon (3D)
  • November 22nd: Madagascar 3 Europe’s Most Wanted
  • November 29th: The LEGO Movie
  • December 6th: A Christmas Story
  • December 13th: The Polar Express (3D)
  • December 20th: Fred Claus

Believe it or not, I have watched every single movie on this list except for one!  I am so excited to bring my kids to some of these movies I am not sure where to start.  The three Christmas themed movies are all on my must see list every single year and I actually own all of them. Even though I own them on DVD, there is something so special about watching them on the big screen.  I know that my kids will be so excited to see The Polar Express in 3D.  Normally 3D movies would cost an arm and a leg and we would not be able to go to them.  For just $2.50 a person, it is completely affordable for my family of four to enjoy them.

This is the perfect fun family activity to do on the weekend when the weather is cooler in the winter months.  A family of four can enjoy a movie day for just $10.  All taxes are included so the $2.50 a person is the final cost.

Good afternoon, my fellow Bargainmoosers! Today’s deal on Amazon allows you to get House: The Complete Series on DVD for $79.99 (was $229.99). You’ll also qualify for free shipping! This critically acclaimed series stars Hugh Laurie, and if you’ve never seen it before, you should at least check out an episode of it online before you decide to get this DVD box set. Personally, I loved the series – it was must-see-TV at its finest.

This DVD set is huge. It comes with all 8 seasons of House, which should definitely keep you entertained for quite a while! Whether you love or hate the brooding and sarcastic character of Dr. Gregory House, it’s a show that’s addicting to watch (especially when you have every season on DVD).

I first watched House in the late 2000′s (my mother was a big fan of the show), and from there I was hooked. I’d sit down with my mom every week and watch the latest misadventures of Dr. House, and I can honestly say that it was a lot of fun. It was also a nice break from my hectic work schedule at the time! I was freelancing and spending countless hours in my office, so watching House was a great way to break that monotony.

House: The Complete Series on DVD currently rings in at $183.99 at Future Shop, and it’s $158 at WalMart. Listed below is a brief review of this box set from a satisfied Amazon customer:

Birthday gift for my wife. They are great. Best way to view these are in chronological order. You pick up on some sub theme that aren’t necessarily apparent in the once a week viewing. My wife and I will sit and listen to 2 or 3 episodes in a row during evening tea and a game of Scrabble.

If you’re looking for a new TV series to check out, then you should consider getting House: The Complete Series on DVD. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Disney Movie Club: 4 Movies for $1 & Free Shipping*

Disney Movie Club: 4 Movies for $1 & Free Shipping*

The Disney movie Club has come to Canada, and with it, you can actually save a lot of money on Disney movie titles. I am here to tell you how to navigate the Disney Movie Club to maximize your savings and not spend unnecessary money.

The introductory offer at the Disney movie club gets you four movies for $1 plus free shipping. By signing up for the Disney movie club, you agree to:

buy 5 movies at regular Club prices in the next 24 months. Regular Club prices start at just $19.95 per DVD and $29.95 per Blu-ray for members who joined under a DVD enrollment offer. Shipping and processing is $4.95 for the first title in each shipment, $6.95 for a box set, and $2.95 for each additional title on the same order (plus GST/HST).

Got that? Now, there is an option when you buy your four movies for $1, to request a fifth movie for $14.95, which is half price if you are going to pay for blu ray movies. This fifth movie counts towards the five movies you need to buy at ‘regular price’, knocking the number of movies you will have to purchase down to just four.

There is also an option to get a sixth movie for $9.95 (which is totally worth it for Disney) when you place your initial order. However, this sixth movie does not count towards your required movie purchase. Even if you buy this sixth movie, you will still need to purchase another four at regular price. Whether you buy four, five, or six movies in the initial offer – shipping is free.

To summarize, the beginning offer looks like this:

  1. Get 4 movies for $1 + free shipping & buy 5 movies at full price
  2. Get 5 movies for $15.95 + free shipping & buy 4 movies at full price
  3. Get 6 movies for $25.90 + free shipping & buy 4 movies at regular price

Your best deals are #2 and #3.

Now, for the trickier part. They will email and mail you out their ‘feature title’ card every four weeks. You must reply within 10 days to switch out the title for something you want or they will automatically send you the feature title (and bill you). To get the best deal: select the remainder four movies you want from the Disney collection the first month of your subscription and then cancel your membership.

The hubby and I have signed up for the Disney Movie Club. We chose option #3 and received our six Blu Ray movies for just $25.90 and the second we get our first ‘featured title’ offer we are ordering the remaining four. That will cost us $29.95 each plus $4.95 shipping for the first DVD and $2.95 shipping for each extra DVD. In total, we will have paid $159.50 for 10 Disney Blu-Ray DVDs, which works out to approximately $16 per Blu Ray movie. With titles like My Neighbor Totoro, Frozen, The Incredibles, and more in our collection… you just cannot get these cheaper anywhere else. You also get a whole load of Disney Movie Reward points inside each movie – bonus!
