Posted by on February 1, 2016 at 1:55 PM

SnowPass Program for Grades 4 & 5    $30 @ SkiCanada.org

With being in the midst of winter vacation season – and Family Day approaching – this was the perfect time to discover the Canadian Ski Council’s SnowPass program. And to share it with you!

The SnowPass Program entitles kids aged 9 & 10 to three lift tickets at each of the participating resorts, all for $29.95. So, if you’re lucky enough to live within a reasonable distance of two (or three) of the hills, the child would actually be able to ski or snowboard 6 (or 9) times at no extra charge. Or maybe you’re travelling to another one of the resorts — they’d get their 3 lift tickets there, too. Read the rest of this entry »

A marketplace seller at Amazon Canada has discounted the AFUNTA 7W 300lm Mini Flashlight CREE Q5 LED Adjustable Focus Zoom (With Rechargeable Battery and Charger) from $35.55 down to $4.47 with free shipping.

Only the black flashlight is discounted this steeply with others retailing for a couple dollars more. I think this is a really cool item because you are paying less than $5 for a flashlight, rechargeable battery, and a charger for the battery. Read the rest of this entry »

Sears Canada: wholeHome 9′ Round Patio Umbrella Was $100 | Now $54 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 12, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Sears Canada: wholeHome 9 Round Patio Umbrella Was $100 | Now $54 & Free Shipping

Sears Canada has a large summer clearance going on and if you’ve been sitting on your deck or patio with the sun blasting on you and wish you had a way to cover up, Sears has the deal for you. Get the wholeHome/MD 9′ round patio umbrella with a regular price of $99.99, now for $53.95.

Yesterday I was sitting on my deck and was very grateful for the umbrella I had because it was a cooker here in Ontario. I had sat in the sun at ribfest, sweating profusely and was glad to come home and sit in the shade and read. I spent quite a bit of money on my umbrella when I bought it last spring because I didn’t see any deals like this out there.

There are two colours left in this umbrella – yellow and hummus sand. Yellow is a gorgeous, bright colour that will liven up any outdoor space. Hummus sand is the opposite and I would say it is basically beige. Whatever your taste – lively or subdued – one of these umbrellas should work for you.

This umbrella is quite large around and will cover quite a bit of space. It has a non-rust aluminum pole with a three-position tilt (something my umbrella does not have and I wish it did!). It also has a crank operation and a polyester fabric that will withstand the elements. Just don’t leave it up in a storm unless you want to see it crash through your neighbour’s window. We’ve left ours up in some bad storms after not realizing our children have played with it (kids!) and all of the fabric ripped through. My lovely in-laws sewed all of the rips for us and it is now good as new. If it wasn’t, I would be jumping on this deal.

It doesn’t come with a base, but luckily I found one on clearance that works great with this umbrella. The wholeHome/MD 15″ steel umbrella base is available in two colours and was $39.99 and now $21.95.

Shipping is going to be free on your umbrella or umbrella and base purchase as it reaches the minimum of $50. If you are purchasing more than this item, you might want to check which coupon codes could work for your order. Sears codes can be finicky and don’t always work on everything (only on select items), but you should always, always, always, try every available coupon code on your order before you checkout. You never know what kind of extra discount you can get.

Retro CruiserStyle 22” Skateboard Was $50 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Showcase Canada

Posted by on June 19, 2015 at 9:25 AM

Retro CruiserStyle 22” Skateboard Was $50 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Showcase Canada

Classic never goes out of style, especially when it involves flying through the air on a hot summer day. You are going to want this Retro Cruiser Style 22” Skateboard to show off all your best moves this summer. Originally priced at $49.99, you can now buy it for only $29.99. Even better, this skateboard ships free!

I am not going to pretend that I am a skateboard expert, because let’s face it I am no Tony Hawk. I do have many fond memories of sunshine, sticky popsicles and dragging the neighbours skateboard up to the top of the driveway for a ride down. At first, I would ride down sitting on the board because I was small and helmets were not mandatory back then. The only board I was allowed to use was a wide wood board that was mostly good for rolling around the terrified small dogs that lived next door. Later, once I finally learned to stand up, I moved up a level to a penny style board. These boards are slimmer, which allowed me to turn much easier than the shaky wood board I had used previously.

Every kid should have a skateboard, and every adult should try it again. Check out the awesome beginner board over at Showcase Canada. This is a 22” transparent board made of polycarbonate, which is more durable than those cheapie plastic boards on the market. Expect this board to stand up better to a ride at the skate park. You will also receive a free tote bag to carry or stow your board. The wheels are transparent just like the board and have seven bearings in each wheel. The metal pieces holding the wheels on to the board are made of shiny aluminum. This board holds up to 264 pounds, so my neighbour’s dog should still fit on here nicely even though he is a Husky. Just kidding, only the small dog can go for a ride.

Canadian Tire sells a classic style wood Flameboy skateboard made by Wet Willy that is $42.99. Over at Amazon.ca, I found a 22” EightBit Banana Board with a plastic base made by Nova/Fury for $59.99. The only retro style board I could find that was comparable at Toys R Us Canada was a light-up board made by Halo for $69.99. Twinkly lights seem to be a popular feature because at Sears Canada, they also have a light up transparent style penny board for $59.99 that is similar to the board I am featuring.

Take this opportunity to throw back to an 80’s summer. Turn on some music, grab some popsicles and take your awesome new board for a spin around the neighbourhood. This slick looking retro board will take you one step closer to a perfect lazy summer day. Just make sure to wear a helmet, we know more now!

Today Only! Sportcraft Backpack Gazebo Was $110 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on May 20, 2015 at 12:18 PM

Today Only! Sportcraft Backpack Gazebo Was $110 | Now $55 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada

Today only at Best Buy Canada you can pick up the Sportcraft Backpack Gazebo. This cool shade on a hot summer day was $109.99 but is now only $54.99. This item also qualifies for completely free shipping.

Here is a sweet little deal for all of your upcoming summer fun. Sometimes in the summer, you find yourself regularly in the blazing sun with no shade. I personally hover over one of those water bottles with the fan attached just to grab a little cool air. Grab this portable gazebo and you and two friends will be sitting pretty in the shade.

This is a personal size gazebo and clocks in at two meters by two meters, or roughly six and a half feet by six and a half feet. Included on the case are backpack straps so you can easily haul this gazebo wherever you are going. That leaves your hands free to carry your camping chair or pull your cooler along.  This gazebo is lightweight, weighing only 18 lbs and is both UV coated and waterproof. This product is freestanding, but also comes with all the ties to stake down this gazebo. You and up to two friends can sit comfortably under this canopy with your cooler.

Here is a list of reasons why you need this gazebo:

  • Shade for your day at the beach
  • The soccer fields never have shade
  • If your kid plays baseball, there is never shade there either
  • Perfect for the jazz festival or another festival where you hang out all day
  • Bring it with you camping
  • Perfect for an outdoor fundraiser
  • Add some comfort to your garage sale
  • Have some shade in your backyard while you wait for those trees you planted to grow

The only place in Canada that carries this exact model of this gazebo is Costco.ca, where you will pay $69.99. If you are looking for an easier-to-carry, lightweight pop-up shelter there is not a whole lot on the market. Over at Amazon.ca, I found a pop-up shelter that is a little bit bigger at 10 feet by 10 feet, and is equipped with a carrying case with handles. This canopy is made by the company Trademark Innovations, and will cost $99.99. I was surprised the camping supply outfitters do not seem to carry these.  Over at Home Depot Canada, I found a larger white slant leg canopy with a size of 8 feet by 8 feet and costs $119.99. Think again if you think Walmart.ca will have a cheaper version. The cheapest canopy I could find there was 10 feet by 10 feet, and it cost $268! Your best bet is the deal at Best Buy Canada.

Your skin will thank you for buying this deal, and so will two of your friends if you decide to share. This deal is only for today. Some of these daily deals at Best Buy are selling out fast lately. If you want one, grab it now!

Amazon Canada: Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set Only $22.67 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set Only $22.67 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada has discounted the Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set to $22.67. While I am not sure how accurate Amazon’s original price was, this set is around 50% off what other retailers sell it for online. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I modified the usual link to the listing, as Amazon Canada’s deal on the knife was not showing up first. That is because another seller is offering immediate shipment whereas Amazon Canada forecasts a two to five week delay in shipping. However, at this price it is certainly worth the wait.

Amazon Canada: Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set Only $22.67 (FS @ $25)

I price compared this set with the few other places I could find it. That other Marketplace seller is selling the Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set for $40.65 with free shipping. At Altitude Sports, the camping set retails for $44.99. I even price compared with eBay, where the cheapest set would cost $34.60 USD = $42 CDN. Essentially, everywhere else I looked for this set is selling it for $40+.

Now that we have established that this is, indeed, a very good deal – let us talk about what you get. The Victorinox Swiss Army Camping Set includes five pieces:

  • Waiter knife
  • Stainless steel utility knife
  • Stainless steel paring knife
  • Fork / Spoon Combo
  • Case

The waiter knife includes a large blade, can opener, bottle opener, and cap lifter. In this knife is everything you need for a party: a way to get into the wine and a way to get into that gorgeous microbrewery beer that you drink. A can opener helps open snacks, and the knife can be used to cut them into bite-size snacks. I use my knife to cut cheese all the time.

In all seriousness, this is a fantastic little kit for the backpacker, camper, outdoorsman, and partier alike. I could even see sticking this into my car’s emergency kit. Knives are extremely useful things and you never know when you will need one. Just a couple days ago I was trying to open a package of pepperoni (as a snack when out) and had to use my keys to open it as I was not carrying a knife.

Enjoy Victorinox’s legendary quality and lifetime guarantee! My father owns several Swiss Army knives and they have never let him down.
