Canada Computers: Focal Spirit One Closed Back Headphones | Was $279 Now $149

Hey there, my fellow Bargainmoosers! I found a sweet deal today on the Canada Computers website for a premium pair of headphones that I think you would all be curious to know about. The deal is for a pair of Focal Spirit One Closed-Back Headphones, and this normally sells for $279! Today, you can pick up these finely crafted headphones for $149 (plus $10.15 shipping) – that’s $130 off the regular price! You can also save on the shipping cost if you decide to ship your order to a Canada Computers location near you.

This premium pair of headphones would be the perfect holiday gift for any audiophiles that you know! If you’re someone that collects only the highest quality headphones that are out there, then you may as well wrap this pair of Focal Spirit One Closed-Back Headphones for yourself! Either way, these headphones aren’t your run-of-the-mill pair – you’ll be able to indulge in your music playlist and listen to your favourite tunes the way they were meant to be heard. You won’t be able to do that with your stock pair of headphones that come with your cell phone or iPod!

It really can be a great gift idea for people that are hard to buy gifts for, whether they’re a teen, an adult, or one of your parents. Music is universal, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy listening to some tunes. Why not surprise them with an elite pair of headphones?

These Focal Spirit One Closed-Back Headphones currently sell for $246.46 on Amazon. I’ve included a brief review of these premium headphones from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

There is no possible comparison. It is good that there is a brand that is more worried about the sound quality than on the aesthetics of a headphone.

Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Google Play Store: Get Daft Punk: Random Access Memories Album For $1.99

Posted by on October 2, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Google Play Store: Get Daft Punk: Random Access Memories Album For $1.99

Thursdays seem like a good day to listen to some tunes. Friday is almost here, which means that the weekend is merely a few days away! Daft Punk fans, you can now get their 2013 album, Random Access Memories, on the Google Play Store for just $1.99! Each song usually costs $1.29 to download, so this is a pretty great deal. This album currently costs $7.99 on iTunes, and the audio CD is $10 on Amazon. Plus, since this is a download, you’ll be listening to this new Daft Punk album soon after your purchase!

Featuring hit songs like Get Lucky, this album is a real bargain for $1.99. If you’ve turned on your radio at all during the past year, it’s likely that you’ve heard this song a few times.

I was a big fan of Get Lucky when it was first released. Like any song that gets mass radio play, I eventually tired of the song, but I’m curious about the rest of this album, since I enjoy some Daft Punk every once in a while. After all, I first heard of them back when I was in elementary school (this was the late 90′s)!

Another fun song on this album is Lose Yourself To Dance, which is a collaboration with Pharrell Williams. You can preview all of the songs in Random Access Memories by clicking here.

I’ve listed a brief review of this album from a satisfied Google Play customer below:

For the very first time, yesterday, I sat down and listened to the whole album, beginning to end, with no breaks. All I can say is incredible. Wow. My top 2 favorite tracks: “Giorgio by Moroder” and “Contact”

If you want to enjoy some new tunes from Daft Punk today, then check out this deal! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Canadian Freebie: Free U2 – Songs of Innocence Album @ iTunes

Posted by on September 9, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Canadian Freebie: Free U2   Songs of Innocence Album @ iTunes

You just got an entire album for free from the rock gods U2. Seriously. You just have to go find it. Today, U2 released their Songs of Innocence Album on iTunes and it is free to anyone who has iTunes or an iOS device (which probably means you have iTunes).

I say you already have the album because it has been secretly downloaded to your iTunes if you have opened your iTunes app today. If you have not, then do so. When you click through the link above it will take you to the album (make sure you click ‘view this in iTunes’) and it will say purchased. That is because it is already in your fingers.

How to find the free album you just received:

  1. Go to your music on your iPhone or in iTunes
  2. Search for “Songs of Innocence” or find U2 in the artists list.
  3. The album is sitting on Apple’s Cloud
  4. Click the little arrow on the cloud icon to download the album from the cloud

You now have your brand new U2 album for free complete with 11 amazing songs. Did I mention free?

This is a wicked deal in my books because I am a music lover! I enjoy hearing good music, no matter what genre it is in. Thus, I am looking forward to listening to this brand new album from U2. I am only familiar with some of their older stuff, thus I am curious how their sound has changed over the years. With or Without You is one of my favourite songs from them.

According to screen shots from Apple’s iPhone 6 press release earlier, it appears that this offer will be available till the 13th of October. I am not sure if that means you only have to sign in to your iTunes by then or if you need to download it from your Cloud as well. I would download it from the Cloud just to be sure.

Coupon Code: Get 25% Off @ OnlineSheetMusic.com!

Calling all music geeks!  If you’re in the market for some printable sheet music, have I got a deal for you.  Check out this promo code to get 25% off at OnlineSheetMusic.com!

Click here to shop @ OnlineSheetMusic.com now

  • Coupon Code:  OSMB2S
  • Discount:  25% off
  • Expiry:  3rd August 2014

I am a self-professed music geek and I love to dabble in my very limited knowledge of piano and guitar.  First and foremost I am a singer, and I am always looking for sheet music to jam with my musical friends.  I often have to buy large books and catalogues of sheet music just to get a couple of songs, and I find that really annoying.  OnlineSheetMusic.com solves all of that with a huge catalogue of sheet music that you pay for and print right from their site.

I often have trouble finding sheet music for current, popular music. This is not a problem at OnlineSheetMusic.com. It really encourages myself and my kids to actually sit down and practice by learning songs we really like to hear, rather than playing the same old tunes that we don’t even really like.  Here are some of the hot songs I found that will definitely be making their way into my performance repertoire:

  • John Legend:  All of me
  • Frozen:  Let it go
  • Sam Smith:  Stay with me
  • Bruno Mars:   When I was your man
  • Katy Perry:  Roar
  • Pharrell Williams:  Happy

Each of the titles above for easy piano was $5.45, but the code brings them down to $4.08.

There is a selection of free sheet music that isn’t exactly popular, but would make good practice sheet music for a beginner. As well, many of the sheets are available in transposable format, which is clearly marked where available, allowing you to transpose as many times as you like before you print into any key(s) you want. You can also transpose up or down octaves, change clefs, and transpose for a different instrument.

OnlineSheetMusic.com also offers a rewards club for $9.99/year.  This entitles you to 15% off all sheet music purchases, as well as exclusive special offers and exclusive new releases.  After this code is over, if you’re planning to buy much sheet music, this is a great way to save some money all year.

There is no shipping charge as you print right from your own computer. For more OnlineSheetMusic.com coupon codes, keep checking back to the Bargainmoose forum. What song will you learn first?

Hoopla: Borrow Music, Movies, & TV Shows for Free Through Your Library

Posted by on May 19, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Hoopla: Borrow Music, Movies, & TV Shows for Free Through Your Library

Libraries across Canada are starting to team up with a company called Hoopla: a netflix like program that lets you borrow free video, music, and audiobooks with your library card. You can enjoy them on your PC, tablet, or phone.

There are some major bonuses to this system:

  • unlimited number of copies available
  • start streaming content immediately
  • can download a title to your phone or tablet for offline viewing
  • they return it for you at the end of the lending period (no late fees)

I have been super impressed with their music collection. I’m totally into symphonic metal right now and they have had a huge selection of the Scandinavian bands I listen to. Hoopla has an online vault of over 10,000 films and 250,000 music albums. While it is taking a while for Canadian libraries to get on board with the system, there are a bunch who already are registered with Hoopla. here are some of the ones I know about:

  • Toronto Public Library
  • Kitchener Public Library
  • Winnipeg Public Library
  • Edmonton Public Library
  • Vancouver Island Regional Library
  • Greater Victoria Public Library
  • Hamilton Public Library
  • North Vancouver Public Library
  • Oakville Public Library
  • Saskatoon Public Library

… and many more.

Not all libraries have the same agreement with Hoopla. For example, I have Hoopla through Vancouver Island Regional Island and we have access to audiobooks whereas I hear Toronto Public Library’s agreement does not include audiobooks. Each library also will have its own rules: my library allows twelve items to be borrowed a month. I get each CD for seven days and I think movies for three days.

Either way it is a fantastic – free – system that you have to check out. If your library doesn’t have Hoopla yet, maybe send them a little note of encouragement.

Amazon.com: Free Song Downloads

Amazon.com: Free Song Downloads

Get free song downloads at Amazon.com from up and coming artists.

To get these free songs, you will have to enter billing information, like your name, address and credit card, but you will not be billed. There is quite the selection of songs, and even if you aren’t sure you’ll like a song, you might as well download it anyway since it is free. The song could be something that grows on you and you could love as you hear it, even if initially it didn’t peak your interest. This has happened to me a number of times, even from big stars like Beyoncé and Pearl Jam.

If you wanted, you could also read the reviews of each song, and then decide which ones you want to download. What I love about free downloads is that if you really, really hate it after you download, the delete button is way too easy.

I see music from every genre available like country, rap, alternative rock and more. I haven’t heard of any of the artists on the list, but that makes it even more fun, discovering new music.

Since these are digital downloads, there are no shipping costs or even taxes. Everything is free.

The Source Canada: Jay Turser Electric Guitar Only $110 (Was $160)

Posted by on December 14, 2013 at 1:30 PM

The Source Canada: Jay Turser Electric Guitar Only $110 (Was $160)

If you have a music lover on your gift list, check out this deal at the Source, with up to 40% off musical instruments and accessories. While I price compared most of the deals here, many of them were the same price elsewhere, except this Jay Turser electric guitar, which is now only $109.99, was $159.99.

For the developing musician, this electric guitar has a double cutaway body, white pick guard, rosewood fingerboard, and maple neck. It looks classic and has great sound. There is a volume control and two tone controllers, as well as a five-way pickup selector and chrome die cast tuners.

I found a few reviews for this guitar online including this one:

This guitar is awesome in ways and bad in others. For the price this guitar kicks ass. Its best sound quality is in clean electric, the notes are bright and clear. Distortion is where this guitar lags behind. Chords are sometimes hard to make out, and the pickups hum really bad. You can get rid of this hum by selecting 2 pickups at once, but then the sound quality is lower…This guitar is well put together. It’s durable, fairly light weight and balanced really nice. When you get a strap on it it rests perfectly flat against you. The pickups were fairly well adjusted (their pretty cheap so they are probably at their full potential).

Depending on what you need, this makes an affordable guitar that is durable, has good sound quality, and may make a great gift idea.

Shipping is free for this item. Check our free shipping page for more companies offering free shipping with no minimum spends.

Roots Canada: Free Collection Of Holiday Music

Roots Canada is offering a free holiday music bundle on iTunes. I really appreciate these free music bundles as a way to get to know new artists.

I am not a huge fan of free music, but there are some classic names in this collection I just had to have. You will get the following songs:

  • Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters
  • Christmas Time With You (feat. Andre Miguel Mayo) by David Ian
  • Christmas for You and Me by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Ella Fitzgerald
  • Christmas Kiss by Meaghan Smith
  • A Snowglobe Christmas by Pink Martini

If for no other reason, getting this collection for Ella Fitzgerald’s voice is totally worth it. However, my personal favourite is Bing Crosby *fangirl scream*! I just adore the man and this is a lovely classic rendition of Jingle Bells. I haven’t listened to the other songs… yet!

All Star Learning Canada: Baby Grand Piano $160 & Free Shipping

All Star Learning Canada: Baby Grand Piano $160 & Free Shipping

If you want to get your music-inclined child an amazing gift, check out this Schoenhut Baby Grand Piano, now on for $159.99, was $184.99. Also, you’d think a large item like this might cost quite a bit in shipping, but it ships for free!

Made for age 3-7, this piano is gorgeous with curved legs and comes in white, black or pink. It is durable as well, as we know toddlers and young children can be rough of their stuff. This piano is the perfect way to introduce your child to music before switching to a larger model.

I priced compared this model of piano and couldn’t find it for less than $200 and Amazon even has it for $239. There are over 100 reviews on Amazon and it is given an overall 4.5 stars, which is pretty great! One reviewer said:

This little grand piano is beautiful and will make a very nice gift for your budding Mozart. I don’t think toddlers will care that it’s so sturdy, shiny, and pretty; they’ll just want to bang away at the keys. The sound is like every other cheap toy piano – loud, high, and tinny, but it’s for fun and who knows where it can lead?
