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

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 9:00 AM

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!

Amazon Canada: Up to 75% Off Popular Movie Titles

Posted by on March 22, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Up to 75% Off Popular Movie Titles

Amazon Canada is offering up to 75% off popular movie titles right now.

I actually found out about this sale when three items I had in my cart suddenly dropped in price by a very good amount!

Ever since I saw part of Now You See Me / Insaisissable [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] on a plane, I have wanted the movie so badly. It is a fantastic movie and not only does it include a couple of my favourite actors (Michael Cain and Mark Ruffalo) but the plot is fantastic and the movie is a lot of fun to watch. Originally $26.99 it is now $14.99 and on my ‘to buy’ list.

Another movie on my ‘to buy’ list is one I already own on DVD but I wish to upgrade to blu-ray. I just adore Robin Hood: 40th Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray + DVD] (Bilingual) which is the Disney Robin Hood done a way back. It is the movie I watch when I am sick or not feeling well because it brings me lots of comfort and tons of little kiddy joy. Originally $26.50 it is now on sale for $15.

The same day that both those movies went down in price I also noticed that Robin Hood: The Complete BBC Series went down in price (though I’m not sure if it is poart of this sale or not). This series has Richard Armitage (who plays Thorin in The Hobbit movies) in it and I adore him. Originally $139.99, it is now on sale for $64.99 which is the lowest I have seen the set ever.

I have really eclectic tastes so be sure to check out the sale section to satisfy your own style.

Amazon Canada: Wizard of Oz Anniversary Edition Only $15

Amazon Canada: Wizard of Oz Anniversary Edition Only $15

Get the 75th anniversary edition of the Wizard of Oz on Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray and UltraViolet Bilingual for only $14.99, was $43.99 at Amazon.

There are different versions of the Wizard of Oz’s anniversary edition, one being the collector’s edition, which I blogged about before Christmas. This is not that collection, as it only comes with the discs. I tried to price compare and found the anniversary edition at Walmart for $80! It says it has the same items as the one on Amazon, but the price totally overwhelms me!

If you’ve never seen the Wizard of Oz, all I have to say is, “seriously???”. This movie is the classic of all classics and it was even featured at this year’s Academy Awards, so I know even the youngest of Moosers have heard of it. I saw this movie at least 50 times in my youth and my kids have all seen it too. If I had a blu-ray player, I’d love to get the 3D copy and see all those flying monkeys coming right at me. Ok, maybe I wouldn’t, those monkeys are quite creepy.

As a special feature, your discs will also include a new feature length documentary of the Making of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Almost every one of the 361 reviews of this set on Amazon give it a 5-star rating, and those who don’t, hey, what do they know?

You’ll have to spend a bit more on something else to get your shipping free as it is a $25 threshold.

Cineplex Canada: Toonie Matinees For March Break *East Coast Only*

Posted by on March 6, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Cineplex Canada: Toonie Matinees For March Break *East Coast Only*

If you live on the East Coast, you are in luck this March Break. Go see a matinee at a Cineplex theatre for their toonie matinees. Last year, they had these all over Canada, but it looks as this year it will only be held in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island.

So, for only $2 with no additional taxes, you’ll be able to choose from five different movies this March Break. These movies are ones that have already been out of the theatres for a bit, but they are still really good ones. The movies and showtimes vary depending on province, so you’ll have to figure that out for yourself.

The movies that will be playing include:

  • The Croods – love it, watched it yesterday again
  • Despicable Me 2 – loved it too, the kids watched this today again
  • Escape from Planet Earth
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 – food falling from the sky, who doesn’t love that?
  • Madagascar: Europe’s Most Wanted

Each March Break is different as well, so this deal has already begun in New Brunswick. It looks like the March Break is later the farther east you go, maybe because of weather.

Also, for only $5.50 you can also get a kid’s combo to eat during the  movie.

Amazon Canada: HBO First Seasons Up To 70% Off

Amazon Canada: HBO First Seasons Up To 70% Off

If I cut my cable off today, the only channel I’d truly miss would be HBO. I love HBO shows! Ever since their inception, their shows have been edgy, thought-provoking and unique. Right now you can introduce yourself to a new HBO show by getting its first season at Amazon for up to 70% off.

I’ve seen a few of the shows on this list, but there are some I’d really like to check out. My favourites that I’ve seen:

Girls - if you haven’t watched this incredibly unique and enlightening show, you are so missing out. Totes! If only I could get Marnie killed off, then the show would be perfect. You don’t want to miss Hannah’s antics and her ability to be totally true to herself.

True Blood – Sookie and Eric and Bill and Jason, oh my! This cast is full of hot vampires and the people who love them. I’ve been left crying at the end of True Blood episodes, and that is saying quite a lot.

Six Feet Under – before Dexter became a serial killer, he worked in his family’s mortuary. Ok, its not really Dexter, but the guy who played him and this show is utterly and completely amazing.

Shows I’d like to check out:

It is interesting how many of these great shows are just one word names. You have to see for yourself if you love them because nothing is given away.

Shipping is free on orders over $25.

Pizza Pizza Canada: Date Night Specials With Dinner & A Movie

Pizza Pizza Canada: Date Night Specials With Dinner & A Movie

Pizza Pizza has a couple of deals on right now that will get you a buy one, get one free movie pass. This means you get dinner and a movie for a low price.

I was never a fan of Pizza Pizza. It reminded me of the small square of pizza I’d eat for lunch every day in high school. That was until my husband forced me try it (it is one of his favourites) again and I was very impressed. They have a huge selection of gourmet toppings, many different crusts and the sauce is not too bad.

Tonight I’m going out for dinner with a friend and this weekend I’m going away for a work trip. Yay Moosers! My husband and kids are going to need to eat and my older sons are complaining that they are the only kids in the entire world who haven’t see the new LEGO movie. I put two and two together and have told my hubby to get some pizza for dinner tonight, then one on Sunday, and voila, he’s got two 2-for-1 admissions to take the kids to the movie. Yes, I know I’m brilliant.

It looks like you’ll get your movie vouchers with a number of deals they  have on including:

  • any size pizza, three toppings, three cans of pop for only $14.99
  • two can dine for $13.99
  • two medium pizzas, four toppings, four cans of pop for only $17.99

This means you’ll pay less than $18 to get a full dinner and one of your movies paid for.

iNetVideo Canada: Up to 70% Off Essential Chick Flicks

iNetVideo Canada: Up to 70% Off Essential Chick Flicks

If your Valentine’s plan is to snuggle up with your man or lady or your cat and watch chick flicks, then you are in luck. iNetVideo has essential chick flicks on for up to 70% off.

While I would never call myself a chick flick aficionado, I’ve pretty much seen and loved every movie on this list. I guess I am a closet romantic. Valentine’s Day is the ultimate time to have a chick flick marathon whether you are paired up or alone. Get all your single girlfriends to come over and watch these, pig out on popcorn and chocolate hearts and believe in the power of pure romance. I’m going to have to believe single people believe more in romance than married people, but these are still nice movies to watch and at such a discount, he’ll be begging you to get them.

My favourites:

  • Dirty Dancing – I’ve probably seen this one about 30 times because Patrick Swayze’s pained and innocent looks kill me. Although I always wondered why we couldn’t take the whole summer off to spend a cottage resort like this – was $15.58, now $7.49
  • The Bodyguard - when Whitney sings, you shut up and when she falls in love, you get out that ring – was $9.93, now $8.49
  • Knocked Up – because its seriously hilarious, although no one gives birth like that – was $30.99, now $7.99
  • The Wedding Planner/My Best Friend’s Wedding double feature – I have watched My Best Friend’s Wedding about a million times with my mom and we’ve been known to break out in “The moment I wake up…” on occasion – was $14.59, now $11.49

Shipping is $2.75 an item.

Amazon Canada: Kid’s Blu Ray Movies Under $10

Amazon Canada: Kids Blu Ray Movies Under $10

Amazon Canada has a huge selection of kid’s movies on Blu Ray for under $10.

Here is a bunch of movies I found at good prices:

There are a bunch more too. You really just need to browse around to find them. Some of them are combos which include digital versions and DVD versions and some are just the Blu ray versions. Most are bilingual it seems.

I price compared a few of these. For example: Yogi Bear in Blu-ray costs $14.97 at Walmart and The Goonies is $9.83 there as well. Walmart does match Amazon’s price on The Lorax but they don’t beat it so if you are loading up on kid’s Blu-Ray at Amazon you might as well buy it there.

Amazon Canada: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital for Only $10!

Posted by on February 1, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu Ray, DVD and Digital for Only $10!

Go into the Darkness… of…  Star Trek? I dunno, this is falling apart. Whatever, it’s a great movie for $10! Amazon!

I love Star Trek. The Original, Next Generation and all the way to enterprise. I love the movies. The old ones, the new ones. All of it. My dad bought me a toy Tricorder for Christmas once. And a communicator. That was awesome. As much as I love it all, I haven’t seen the latest one.

That’s probably because I’m old and instead of buddies I have a kid and a wife. A wife who would probably jump out of a moving car rather than see a Star Trek movie.

With this deal I have no excuse. $10 to get the Blu-Ray, DVD and digital copy? Awesome. So for the folks out there like me who haven’t gotten a chance, well, here it is. It’s gotten great reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and pretty much everywhere else. I guess it isn’t as good as the previous Star Trek but that’s kind of expected I guess.

I’ve heard people say that Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan is worth seeing the movie for all on it’s own and I believe it. Talent.

Shipping is not free unless you spend $25 and depends on where you are. The movie isn’t prime, either.

Amazon Canada: Indiana Jones Complete Adventure Collection Only $24.99

Today only, get the Indiana Jones Complete Adventure Collection on Blu-Ray for only $24.99, was $105.

If you love Indy and friends, or want to introduce this series to your kids, now is the time with such a great deal at Amazon. I recently let my son watch The Temple of Doom and he was immediately hooked. What kid doesn’t love the crazy adventures Indiana Jones takes and the challenging situations he gets himself out of?

This collection includes:

  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • The Temple of Doom
  • The Last Crusade
  • Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

If you haven’t heard of Indiana Jones for some reason, read the summary and the reviews, which are more than enough to tell you how fascinating these movies are. They are classic and even I, who typically doesn’t like this type of flick, will sit and watch them with my kids and husband.

Shipping is free when you spend $25 and since this is $24.99 I would hope that counts!

Amazon Canada: Brave Collectors Edition Now $15 (Expired)

I have been waiting for this Blu Ray set to be a decent price for absolutely ages and it finally happened! Pick up Brave (Collector’s Edition) (Blu-ray + DVD) (Bilingual) for just $15 (original price was $46.99).

So I was totally stoked when this movie came out in theatres. Then for some reason I totally forget (maybe I was sick, or finals, or traveling) I never got to see the movie. My hubby saw part of the movie on a flight and said he thought it was good and since then I have been keeping my eye on the price. I figure a story about a redhead girl with a will of her own would make for a fantastic movie night in!

The movie with both the DVD and Blu Ray versions is now on sale for $15. I price compared to Walmart Canada which has the same collection for $24.97. This is a wicked deal and I hope you take advantage of it – I just did!

Get free shipping on orders of $25.
