Posted by on August 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM

NewEgg Canada Promo Code: 23 Monitor Now Only $144.99

A touchscreen monitor to join your Windows 8.1-equipped desktop system? Yes, please! On top of Newegg’s already great deal for this 23” touchscreen monitor that slashes 43% off of the regular price to $199.99, you can use the coupon code to save another $55! With this useful coupon code, you can get this 23” touchscreen monitor for only $144.99.While Newegg is promoting another coupon code on their site, that will only help you save $50, compared to the $55 that you can save with the one we are giving you. This is why we like to look out for our fellow Bargainmoosers!

Click here to check out this deal @ Newegg.ca now

  • Coupon Code: TOUCHEXTRA
  • Discount: $55 off
  • Expiry: 26th August 2014

The Hanns-G HT231DPBU Black 23″ Touchscreen Monitor with built-in speakers  normally costs $349.99 on Newegg, while it rings in at $219.99 at Canada Computers, and costs $224.47 at Ashlin Technology Solutions. Though you’ll have to input your postal code to find out how much shipping will cost you for this deal at Newegg, it typically ends up being $9.99 for ground shipping to a Canadian address.

When I first checked out a touchscreen monitor at a retail location several months ago, I was blown away. I didn’t think it would captivate me very much, since most smartphones on the market at this time have touchscreen capabilities. However, you don’t know just how handy a touchscreen interface on a desktop computer can be, until you use one that’s equipped with Windows 8.1. Everyday tasks become that much easier to accomplish, and it certainly attracts attention! At least that was the case when I found myself playing Fruit Ninja on a touchscreen monitor at a retail location, and a small crowd gathered behind me (most likely shaking their head at my now-rusty video game skills).

Here’s what some Newegg customers had to say about the Hanns-G HT231DPBU Black 23″ Touchscreen Monitor:

Pros: Great size. I ordered 2 because of the price and I wanted 2 monitors. I got them and was almost shocked by how big they were. like they were seriously BIG! still very thin however, which I really like. very responsive, great picture. True 1080p is hard to complain about.

Cons: Why is there still D-SUB or VGA on anything? add an HDMI to this thing. On the side by the display inputs it says HDMI optional, but no port. PUT ONE IN AND GET RID OF D-SUB!!! Stand is a little flimsy, but it doesn’t raise any concerns over stability.

Other Thoughts: DVI input solves some of the issues for the display inputs.

NewEgg Canada: Compact Refrigerator Only $70

Posted by on August 20, 2014 at 3:00 PM

NewEgg Canada: Compact Refrigerator Only $70

If you’re looking for a convenient way to keep your food and drinks chilled, this compact refrigerator can certainly help accommodate your needs! Now that we’re still enjoying the summer season, this 1.7 cu. ft. compact fridge can be especially handy during some of these humid days. Today’s deal from Newegg.ca allows you to save $80 off of the regular price of this Midea MRS180B 1.7 cu ft. Compact Refrigerator, and today you can get it for only $69.99- a 53% savings!

The Midea compact refrigerator is black, sleek, and  small enough to fit in many areas (its dimensions are 19.4h x 18.6w x 17.7 d.) At Newegg.ca, you can get it shipped to you for only $9.99!

If you’re looking for an efficient fridge that can easily fit on your desktop, in your garage, in your office, or even in your basement, then this is the perfect solution for you!

Better yet, just imagine this scenario: You suddenly wake up at 3 A.M., and you’re incredibly hot and thirsty. After convincing yourself that you’ll get back to sleep after having some water, you unfortunately realize that you just don’t have the energy to go down the stairs and into the kitchen to pour yourself a glass of H20. If you had this Midea compact refrigerator conveniently placed in your room, this scenario wouldn’t even be an issue for you- after all, you’d be able to simply take a few steps in your room to enjoy a nice, chilled drink in the middle of the night.

Personally, I know I love having a fridge in my bedroom, and I know you all would, too- especially since it’s so compact. The Midea compact refrigerator hums along nice and quietly, since it’s energy-efficient. It can also be a great addition to any college dorm!

At only $70, this is especially a great deal when comparing the price to other sources like Amazon.com, with the price range for this model fluctuating from $113.84 (plus $47.29 shipping) to $145.95 (with free shipping). I couldn’t find this exact model at many places in Canada, but the price for a 1.7L refrigerator is usually at least around $100 (and goes up from there).

Here’s what some Newegg.ca customers are saying about this compact fridge:

Pros: Small, quiet, energy efficient

Cons: Small. Really, really tiny. Not much space for much.

Pros: Great compact fridge. Fairly quiet. Stays cold very well (goes for many hours without having to turn on to maintain temperature, unless you’re opening it frequently of course). Has a tray under the freezer-portion. Rack is removable.

Cons: Makes a ping sound when the compressor turns on and off (not a lot of noise-dampening to reduce the sound, unlike with full-size fridge/freezers). Not a big deal, just an FYI. Wish it had a soda can track in the door.

Other Thoughts: EnergyGuide yellow card that came with estimates $26 annual electrical bill from use (10.65cents/kWh, total 247kWh).

Take advantage of this great deal before it disappears- with 53% off of the regular price of $149.99, it’s easy to see why you should act fast and nab this conveniently compact refrigerator before it’s too late! Check out this great deal from Newegg.ca, and remember that there’s a limit of 5 units per customer.

Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghosts Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset Only $99.99 @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on August 13, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghosts Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset Only $99.99 @ Newegg.ca

There are gamers and then there are gamers… Noticed the difference? Okay, probably not. But if you had heard us say it, then you’d totally get what we’re talking about.  Newegg.ca is offering the Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghost Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset for $99.99 with free shipping!

The Call of Duty video game franchise is one of the best selling and beloved series of games out there. In fact you’d be hard pressed to find a more devoted group of gaming fans. So it’s only natural that these fans take their Call of Duty very seriously. That’s what makes this deal so great! Now we know what you might be thinking, “First off, that’s an excessively long product name. And secondly, that seems a little steep for video game headphones.” Well, they’re regularly priced at $299.99 so at $99.99, that’s a 67% saving.

Here are the online prices at other well-known retailers:

  • Best Buy $169.95
  • Future Shop $169.95
  • Amazon $199.99
  • The Source $229.96
  • Walmart $239.96

The headsets offer a lot of bells and whistles to enhance every Call of Duty Ghost fan’s experience. Here are some of the headset’s key features:

  • Dual Band WiFi provide clearer chat and game audio
  • Premium Dolby Digital Surround Sound
  • Wireless Bluetooth that allows you to mix game audio with your own music and answer calls
  • 15 hours of battery life
  • Official Call of Duty Ghost game sound enhancements specifically designed from the game’s developers.

Now, the reviews on the site are mixed. Either you love them or you don’t. But the reviews from other sites seem to be more favorable than not. There are a lot of gaming headphone options currently out there. But at $99.99 marked down from $299.99, the Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghost Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset is really worth considering.

Save Up To 75% In The Ubisoft Video Game Sale @ Newegg.ca!

Posted by on August 9, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Save Up To 75% In The Ubisoft Video Game Sale @ Newegg.ca!

This weekend, Newegg.ca has announced a special sale on Ubisoft PC game titles, when the digital codes are purchased through their website. There is up to 75% off select titles, and from what I can tell, there are a few great bargains in there!

There are over 32 different titles to choose from in this sale. Some video games are at 50% off, but the majority are discounted by 75%.

Let’s price compare the headliner deal in this sale from Newegg.ca – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Gold Edition which is priced at $29.99 on there. That’s half price, according to Newegg.ca. The price for this game is $49.99 on the EA Origin store. It’s also $59.99 on GreenMan Gaming, $59.99 @ uPlay, $59.99 @ Steam and Gamersgate is $59.99 too.

Needless to say, that’s a hot price from Newegg. For this game, Newegg gives you a DRM code to play it through the uPlay service. As for reviews for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Metacritic gives this game a metascore of 83/100 – really high. If you’re interested, pick it up now at this super price from Newegg.ca.

Some other good potential deals:

If you’re looking at other titles in the Newegg video game sale, I strongly suggest you price compare each individual item. While I have shown above that the Assassin’s Creed game is a very good deal, this isn’t necessarily true for every single gaming title there. Pop the select game in to Google.ca and see what prices you can find.

Spot any bargains? Let us know in the comments below what you can find.

Newegg.ca: Free Games & Software With Processor Purchase ($99 Value)

Posted by on August 8, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Newegg.ca: Free Games & Software With Processor Purchase ($99 Value)

Newegg Canada is offering a bundle of software and games free when you purchase select fourth generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors.

No coupon code is necessary; the bundle is included with your purchase as shown.

Your bundle full of freebies includes the following:

  • Grid Autosport
  • Shadowrun Returns
  • Star Chart
  • McAfee LiveSafe

All of the above games/software are digital downloads from my understanding. You will be given redemption codes to download all the above games and software.

I wasn’t so sure about the value attributed to this bundle so I did some snooping around. The easiest place to start was with the McAfee LiveSafe software. McAfee themselves sells this for $79.99 and I found it as cheap as $64.55 at Amazon.ca. As for the games, here is what I found:

Even with Star Chart being a free app for Windows 8 (not sure why it is included in this bundle), this bundle still calculates in at well over the $99 declared value. I think that Star Chart may only be available on Windows 8 (not Windows 7 if you are planning to run it). However, it is compatible with iOS and Android systems. The redemption code might cover them, I do not know.

So what is your best deal? The cheaper the processor, then the better the freebie value against the original product. Thus, I would suggest looking at the Intel Core i5-4430 Haswell Quad-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54430 for $189.99.

Now, I was thinking that this processor is a great deal already because you are receiving approximately $130 worth of games and software on top of it, the way I calculate things. However, I also did some price comparing just to make sure they had not inflated the price of the processor to compensate. The BX80646I54430 processor at NCIX costs $199.99 + shipping and at Direct Canada, it costs $201.82 + shipping. Therefore, you are not only receiving an awesome bundle of freebies, you are also receiving a good deal on the initial product.

Shipping for this bundle should be just $4.99. There are also many other processors to choose from if you need something a bit more powerful. There are a couple others coming in under $200 if you are under a budget, and they go up to much higher prices for the more advanced models.

Newegg.ca: $10 Off Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro Lifetime & Free $5 GC

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Newegg.ca: $10 Off Malwarebytes Anti Malware Pro Lifetime & Free $5 GC

Newegg Canada is selling Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro Lifetime for one PC – OEM at $10 off the regular price. Buy this fantastic anti-malware software for just $19.99, reduced from $29.99, and receive free shipping and a free $5 gift card.

There is a limit of one per customer. This software detects and protects your computer against malware. It also blocks phishing (people trying to steal your information like passwords and credit cards) and hacking attempts. You can schedule automatic scanning with their three flexible scanning modes. They advertise themselves as an advanced software removal package, and for $19.99, you will receive a lifetime subscription for one personal computer.

Now, I am sure you are thinking: what happens if I buy a new computer? Well, I dug into some fine print and found the solution. According to Malwarebytes’ website, you just need to follow some easy steps to transfer your license from one computer to your next computer:

ISSUE: I’m changing computers. How do I Transfer my License to the new computer?

SOLUTION: Keep a copy of your ID/KEY from the computer you wish to remove it from and you can run the following to remove it from the old computer.

  • Download and run this utility. mbam-clean.exe (link only works if you have software)
  • It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).
  • Then install MBAM on the new computer and activate it with the ID/KEY from the system you just removed it from.

You should also have an email from Cleverbridge with your ID/KEY purchase information.

This licence is essentially for your lifetime on one personal computer. Your personal computer can change; you just can only have the licence installed on one computer at a time.

Not only do you receive free shipping on this software package, you will also receive a free $5 Newegg promotional card. Your promotional gift card will be issued four days after you are invoiced for your purchase. Promotional gift cards can only be redeemed online through Newegg.ca and they expire one year after being issued. You do not need to use the entire value all in one purchase (though I am sure with $5 you probably would). Leftover credit can be used for another purchase.

I cannot begin to mention the troubles I have had with my computer and McAfee. When my anti-virus and malware protection comes due, I am switching over to something less problematic!

Sphero Robotic Ball Only $70 & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on August 2, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Sphero Robotic Ball Only $70 & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca

Newegg sent me a link to this item on their site, which appears to be a very good deal – so I thought I’d let you guys know about it too. I’ve never seen a Sphero Robotic Ball, it’s an interesting product! Regularly priced at $219.99 (?), you can pick it up for only $69.96 with free shipping from the Newegg marketplace right now.

The item is on Newegg marketplace, and it’s sold via Shoptronics. That’s a brand we’ve also mentioned here on Bargainmoose too.

But what does it do!? The Sphero is a robotic gamaing system which is compatible with iOS & Android. It’s not just a ball that changes colours! There a few games built in, as well as some augmented reality games.

Compatibility

This Sphero Robotic Ball works with the following devices as long as they have ios 4 or greater: iPad, iPad 2, iPod Touch (3 & 4) and iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S, 5). It also works with Android Marketplace Android devices with operating system 2 & 2.2.

Price Comparison

Prices elsewhere in ascending order: $93 @ Amazon, $95 @ Shop.ca, $100 @ The Source. Just note that the Sphero 2 is now out and available. If you’re searching and price comparing yourself, note that the second edition may come up in your searches too. So therefore, this price from the Newegg Marketplace is pretty great, coming in at 25% less than the next price up.

Video Review

Here’s a little review I found on Youtube if you want to have a watch:

The guy above shows you some of the things you can do and some of the games which you can play on the Sphero.Check out the zombie game! The Sphero looks really cool, I’d imagine my four year old daughter would love this.  Actually, now that I come to think of it, my 39 year old partner would also love it. Sphero Robotic Ball Only $70 & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

I blogged a hot video game deal earlier, Fallout New Vegas from uPlay. And I’ve stumbled on another hot video game deal for the PC. This time, it’s the Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Game of the Year Bundle Pack. The regular price of this video game bundle is $49.98 but you can save $39.99 at Newegg.ca now – the digital video game bundle is priced at only $9.99!

As I said above, this is a digital bundle. You won’t be getting anything shipped to your home, you will just get the game codes to download and install these games on your PC. As far as I can see, you’ll need to download Steam to enable you to play this.

Just for your information, this video game bundle at Newegg.ca doesn’t give you all the potential Borderlands DLC and content. There’s some additional DLC for Borderlands 2 which isn’t included… you might want to consider adding that at a later stage.

I’m a HUGE fan of the Borderlands PC game franchise! When the first game was released about five years ago, I was an avid fan and played it every evening and weekend for months and months. I enjoyed it immensely because I played it co-op with my partner and we used to have great fun completing all the missions together. The only real problem I had at the time was that I was pregnant… so an extended session of Borderlands usually resulted in me throwing up. But it was worth it!

Then funnily enough, when Borderlands 2 was released, I was pregnant with my second baby. There was still a bit of throwing up but not nearly as much as the first time round. I didn’t get quite as addicted to Borderlands 2 as much as I had been to the first edition. I don’t think the gameplay was quite as good fun…. But it was still a pretty entertaining game.

Price Comparison!

While it is a little hard to price compare this PC video game set because it’s a bundle, we’ll see what we can do to show you how good the price from Newegg actually is. On Steam itself, here is the price to buy the individual components:

  • Borderlands GOTY – $29.99
  • Borderlands 2 – $19.99

Therefore, the total to buy this set through Steam right now would be $49.98 – and you’re getting it for a measly $9.99 through Newegg. More price comparisons:

  • EBgames – $19.99 plus $29.99 = $49.98
  • Amazon.ca – $11.99 plus $14.43 = $26.42

Definitely the best price from Newegg!

Newegg Canada: Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Now $80 + $10 GC

Posted by on July 23, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Newegg Canada: Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Now $80 + $10 GC

Newegg Canada is selling the Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Series Headset for just $79.99 with free shipping. That is 50% off the original retail value of $159.99. You will also receive a free $10 promotional gift card for Newegg.ca with your purchase.

Amazon Canada has this headset on sale for $99.99 with free shipping, which is $20 more and does not include a free gift card. Walmart.ca is selling the headset for $159.83 and The Source is selling the headset for $159.99. Newegg Canada’s price is not only the best, but the freebie makes it a sweet offer.

This headset features Dolby Surround Sound Speakers for a mind-blowing auditory experience. The earpieces are adjustable so you can get a good fit on your ears and enjoy the most incredible sound filtered into your ears from 360 degrees. The headset is wireless, no accidentally tripping on your headset wire or pulling your headset off when you gesture emphatically at the screen. The Turtle Beach headset also has ‘dynamic chat boost,’ making sure you can always hear your team mates while you play games. You can also monitor your own voice with the microphone monitor so you are not screaming at your mates when you get excited. There is no need to break any eardrums.

The headset is designed specifically for the Xbox 360, but would pair well with any console. It does require a digital optical cable hookup to either your Xbox or TV according to reviewers so make sure you have that input available.

Oddly enough, there is only one review for this headset on Newegg and it is negative. I checked over at Amazon because they have a larger pool of reviewers, and the reviews were quite positive over there. On Amazon Canada the Turtle Beach X42 has four 5-star reviews and three 4-star reviews.

Your promotional gift card will be issued four days after you are invoiced for your purchase. Promotional gift cards can only be redeemed online through Newegg.ca and they expire one year after being issued. You do not need to use the entire value all in one purchase, left over credit can be used for another purchase.

I own a Turtle Beach headset and it is very good. The microphone is far superior to many I have tried before and the sound quality is good for the price I paid. For a gaming headset, I have been happy with this brand.

Newegg Canada: Over 70% off JBL Speakers

Posted by on July 16, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Newegg Canada: Over 70% off JBL Speakers

Newegg Canada is offering just over 70% off JBL Speakers for your home entertainment system.

I know a lot about headphones because I take most of my music directly: shot straight into my head. However, home speakers are rather outside my scope so bear with me on this post. Now, there are two speakers on sale for a good chunk of savings. First off, you have the JBL Studio 180 6.5″ 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker which was $349.99 and is on sale for $99.99 + $28.63 shipping. That shipping may seem a bit high, but as you are saving 71% on the speaker alone, and a speaker is a pretty big and heavy piece, I think it is worth it. This speaker boasts the following stats:

  • Frequency Response: (-3dB) 45Hz – 22kHz
  • Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz, 3.2kHz, 6dB/octave
  • 8 Ohms 200W
  • 89dB(2.83V@1m)

If anyone would like to chime in what that actually means, be my guest. The reviews on these speakers are mixed, with most the reviews being good with the occasional negative thrown in. The latest reviewer gave a quick rundown on the pros and cons according to him:

Pros: Well constructed cabinets and drivers. Very good low end and balanced by a bright high end that’s not shrill.

Cons: The speaker covers are kind of ugly, with the cheap plastic look.

For just a few more dollars, you can buy the JBL Studio 1 Series Studio 190 Home Audio Speaker Single, which was $449.99, for only $126.99 + $19.99 shipping. I have no idea why the shipping is cheaper on this model, but it does help to balance out the few extra dollars you are spending on the speaker. This speaker has the following stats:

  • Frequency Response: (-3dB) 40Hz – 22kHz
  • Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz, 3.2kHz, 6dB/octave
  • 8 Ohms 200W
  • 90 db @ 1 watt, 1 meter

Also, this speaker has far more favourable reviews with a near perfect 5/5 eggs. One gentleman has owned these for over a year and he said:

These 190′s did not disappoint! Crisp airy highs and thunderous lows with a fast attack that makes rock and modern music sizzle. Yet, put on some classical and the strings sound as if they are in the room with you – with all the texture of a live performance. Truly amazing. What’s even more amazing is that there must have been a break in period because they sound even better now.

At just over 70% off their original price, I figured this might be a good deal for any audiophiles out there.

Newegg Canada: FujiFilm Finepix XP200 Camera only $239.99!

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Newegg Canada: FujiFilm Finepix XP200 Camera only $239.99!

Be ready to capture all your fun family summer memories with the FujiFilm Finepix XP 200 Camera from Newegg.ca for only $239.99 (regularly 299.99)!

I’ll be the first to admit that sales named after sales that take place during other times of the year kind of tick me off.  Christmas in July and boxing week in July honestly just make me shake my head.  So Newegg’s Mid-Year Black Friday Event had me rolling my eyes a little bit.  Are we really that lost for creativity that we have to name an event in July after one in November?  How about hot summer sale?  Ok, rant over.  After I got past the annoying sale name, I was looking through the deals that are mostly on a whole bunch of gizmos and gadgets that I don’t understand and am not sure what I would do with.  But I did stumble on the great deal above for a FujiFilm Finepix XP200 camera, on sale for $239.99 (regularly $299.99).  Compared to what I found at The Source ($269.96 on sale) and from a secondary seller on Amazon.ca ($274.01), this is a nice price on a nice camera.

This camera is essentially everything-proof.  It has four way protection, making it waterproof to 50 feet, shockproof to 6.6 feet, freezeproof to 14 degrees F (minus 10 degrees C) and dustproof.  The pool, splash pad, beach, and pretty much anywhere else I could think of taking this camera have nothing on that four way protection!  I think this camera would be pretty perfect for beach vacations where being dropped, getting wet, and sand are major factors.

The camera features a 16.4 megapixel ½.3” CMOS, a 5X optical zoom lens, and full HD 1080P video recording capability.  There is a 3.0” LCD monitor that is treated with an anti-reflective coating which helps to see the screen even in bright sunlight.  The Fujifilm Finepix XP200 also offers wireless image transfer allowing you to transfer up to 30 photos at a time to smartphones.  You are also able to access your camera remotely from your smartphone or tablet.

The Fujifilm Finepix XP200 is available in both blue and yellow.  I really like the yellow one as I feel like I might have a better chance of finding it when I put it down in a “safe place” that I forget about almost immediately.

Shipping depends where you live, but for me it was around $7.

Click here to shop @ Newegg.ca now

  • Coupon Code:  DD10NE
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 6th July 2014

While 10% doesn’t seem like a huge discount, I haven’t seen many coupons from New Egg that apply to almost everything on their site. Also, because items like electronics can be pricey, getting 10% off can really add up.

NewEgg has a Boxing Week in July sale going on right now, with up to 75% off select items. There are items available that aren’t part of the exclusions above, so it may really be worth your while to check out what is on sale, then add the 10% discount on top of that.

We are in the market for a streaming device for the second TV we just bought. My kids have stolen a hard drive I had with movies on it, so I’m looking for something else to watch movies with. While this Netgear NeoTv streaming player is the older model, it is a really great price and I couldn’t find it in stock anywhere else. It seems like it has everything I need and the newer model is at least $20 more on sale at Best Buy. This model is regularly priced at $79.99, on sale for $39.99, but add the coupon code and pay only $35.99.

Another really hot deal I found was on the Polk Audio PSW series powered subwoofer. This is a shell shocker deal, on for today only and the code is applicable to it. I price compared and found a huge variance in prices, even up to $750, but at NewEgg, you’ll get it for $206.99 after promo code, with a regular price of $599.95.

Shipping depends on the item, as some have free shipping, some have shipping charges of $7.99.

You’ll want to keep up to date on all NewEgg promo codes, and you can do that by visiting the forum regularly.

Newegg Canada: Cuisinart Silver Waffle Maker Only $40

Newegg Canada: Cuisinart Silver Waffle Maker Only $40

Regularly $79.99, but for this week only, $39.99 with free shipping the Cuisinart WMR-CAC Silver Waffle Maker is a great addition to your kitchens small appliance lineup.

Do you like food that tastes good?  Do you like delicious food? Do you prefer easy to prepare meals? Do you on occasion eat one or more of the following meals, breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner?  Since I know you answered yes to everything so far, except of course brunch, which you only do on occasion, special occasion that is, let’s move on.  Do you own a waffle maker?  What, you don’t?!  They are too hard to clean you say, they are too expensive you say, they are only for breakfast you say and waffles are too hard to make you say.  Well I say au contraire, no no, waffles are easy to make, waffles are easy to clean up, and waffles are surprisingly versatile.

First, making your waffles you will need a batter this is not rocket science and you should have most if not all the ingredients already in your kitchen.  Here is a good basic recipe from this you can add your own personal touch.  What I like about this recipe is that you can save it covered in the fridge for up to a week.

Ok, you have made your batter, so simply plug in your waffle maker. With the Cuisinart WMR-CAC Silver Waffle Maker you have five browning options available to you from whether you prefer your waffles pale and doughy to toasty crispiness, Cuisinart recommends the middle setting number three.  Let the waffle maker heat up ,which is surprisingly quick, then ladle your batter in and close the lid, wait and voila yummy fresh warm goodness.

To clean your new Cuisinart waffle maker, unplug it and let it cool down.   The non-stick surface means you only need to brush away any leftover crumbs and with a paper towel sop up any grease left over.  Any harder to get remnants simply wet a cloth and gently wipe off.  No scrubbing no detergent needed, simple.

Now the fun part of having the ability to make waffles whenever you so desire is being able to use them in non-traditional ways.  The traditional way with whipped cream, chopped fruit, and chocolate sauce drizzled over is good but a little too sweet in my books to eat with any regularity.  Start slow with your waffle deviance and top them with peameal bacon and sunny side up eggs. Next, start adding things to the batter for a more savoury waffle your favourite herbs, chives and cheddar cheese.  Now, you are on the road to pulled pork waffle sandwiches, bbq chicken and maple syrup on your waffles and using your waffles as taco shells with hot sauce guacamole and the meat of your choice!  The combinations are endless, if you let yourself explore the dark side of waffles and life.

(Xbox 360) Tomb Raider Game of the Year for $20 & Free $5 Gift Card & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca!

(Xbox 360) Tomb Raider Game of the Year for $20 & Free $5 Gift Card & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca!

On the fairly newish video game section on Newegg Canada, you can pick up a copy of Tomb Raider Game of the Year for the Xbox 360 for only $19.99, as well as free Canadian shipping to your home. Here are all the details:

As well as the great price for the game above, Newegg.ca will also send you a free $5 Newegg gift card with your purchase. From what I can garner from their website, you can then use this $5 gift card towards any future Newegg purchase. The freebie acts just like a regular gift card, there don’t appear to be any restrictions or minimum purchase amounts. So buy this game now… play it for a bit… then use your $5 towards the next game. (Xbox 360) Tomb Raider Game of the Year for $20 & Free $5 Gift Card & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca!

Let’s price compare! Square Enix’s Tomb Raider, the Game of the Year edition for the Xbox 360 is currently showing up for $30 @ Walmart (in-store), $30 @ EB Games (in-store), $30 @ Gameshack, $30 @ Best Buy, $30 @ Future Shop, $30 from Shop.ca (but OOS), $30 @ Archambault. It seems to be around that price level at most stores.

I did also find it at $20 from Amazon.ca, but shipping is an extra $1.99. Of course, we all know that you get free shipping on Amazon orders of $25 or more, so you’d have to spend a bit more to get the game itself for the same price. Plus, there’s the fact that you don’t get the extra free gift card too.

What about the game itself, I hear you ask. Is it any good? Well, reviewers on Amazon.com had people saying that it was one of the best Lara Croft games they’d ever played. This game got a score of 9.1/10 from IGN – sweet.

It’s been a while since I’ve played any games from this big-bosomed heroine! I think that the last time I played with her was probably on the PC, maybe 15 years ago. I know that the Tomb Raider games were always more popular on consoles, I don’t think the controls translated well to the PC. When I was running around getting used to the ease of movement with games like Quake and Half Life, it always felt a bit hobbled to have limited console-like movements with Lara Croft.

Ever played this edition of Tomb Raider? Any good?
