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. While I do not believe that original price for a second (see why below) this is still a fantastic price for this waterproof mini flashlight with rechargeable battery and charger included!

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.

Canadian Freebie: 3M VHB Tape

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Canadian Freebie: 3M VHB Tape

Right now, 3M is giving away a free sample of the 3M VHB Tape. This tape is tough and designed to replace screws and hold up to weather conditions. Snag your free sample with 3M before they are gone!

When you fill out the form, this sample asks for your contact information along with your company name. 3M does state that they intend to fulfil this sample for commercial samples. I always write that I am an independent contractor, which I am on the side. After you submit your information, the website does mention on the page after you submit that a 3M representative will be contacting you within seven business days. I suspect you will receive either an e-mail or a brochure in the mail. I did not receive a confirmation e-mail immediately such as may happen with some other sample requests. I expect the sample will take a few weeks to arrive, though 3M does not state explicitly how long it will take.

Several years back I worked with a company that regularly created exhibitions for the public. Our shows had to be clean, concise and hold up to lots of people touching and pulling on items that they should be only reading. I was regularly mounting text panels, figuring out how to make pieces more durable and working with the amazing people in our shop to finish projects. A 3M double-sided industrial tape was regularly in our toolbox. I went through huge reams of double-sided tape for every installation and always had success.

I do not doubt that the 3M VHB tape will hold up to almost any project you give it. This tape is for heavy duty construction projects. You can attach this double-sided tape to metal, glass, plastic and a large variety of other surfaces. Use this tape as a replacement for screws and bolts, no holes or drills needed.

This product will also stand up to various weather elements such as rain, wind and extreme heat and cold. I can see using this sample for several outdoor projects I have in mind, and I bet it will hold together nicely. There is a video testimonial on the 3M website in which a company that works mainly with aluminium praises the tape for also bonding quickly to surfaces without drying time. Most other products that bond as strong as bolts and nails have a long drying time and lots of chemical fumes. I am looking forward to trying out my free sample when it arrives.

Bargainmoosers, what would you hold together with this tape?

Toys R Us Canada: Radio Flyer 5-Way Family Wagon Was $250 | Now $187

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 10:27 AM

Toys R Us Canada: Radio Flyer 5 Way Family Wagon Was $250 | Now $187

With summer coming, this means trips to the park, walks around the neighbourhood and generally just being outside. If you’ve got a toddler, you know that these walks mean going at a snail’s pace and you also know that they will not sit in the stroller! What they do love to sit in, is a wagon and Toys R Us has a fantastic deal on this week on the Radio Flyer 5-way family wagon. Regularly $249.99, it is on sale for $187.47.

I am a mom who had a wagon, then sold it, then had another baby and wished I didn’t sell my first wagon! It was so handy. I love the look of Radio Flyer wagons, as well and they have so many great features that make them worth the money. The manufacturer recommends this wagon for ages 2 – 8 years and Toys R Us recommends it for ages 2 – 4. I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest it is good for about ages 1 – 6. The reason I say this is that, as soon as a baby can sit up, they can sit in this wagon. I also know that my older kids would not say no to a ride in the wagon, especially when they got tired on walks. But, my 8-year-old would not be seen being pulled in a wagon.

The many features of this wagon include a removable UV protection canopy, which really is super important on those sunny days you want to keep your kids in the shade. It has child and adult cup holders and fold-up seats, that make it much more comfortable on the back than other wagons I’ve seen.

You have five seating options with this wagon. One option is to have both seats in place for two kids. From reading the reviews, I also found out that you can have two kids sitting in, but back to back and not face to face. This is great so kids don’t fight! Another option is having one seat with a tray for doing activities, as well as a storage space, or you can take away the tray. Another option is to have no seats and just use it for stuff!

The many, many reviews sing the praises of this wagon and there are not many bad reviews:

This is THE best wagon on the market to date! The various seat adjustments makes this a very versitile and much needed wagon for families on the go.

I couldn’t find this wagon anywhere else, but I definitely think this is a good price. If you love Radio Flyer, Toys R Us has up to 25% off a huge amount of items. As for shipping, you’ll get $10 off shipping and for me that amounted to paying only $8 for shipping. I also have the option of picking it up in store for free.

Amazon Canada: Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox Was $112 | Now $59 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox Was $112 | Now $59 (EXPIRED)

Spring has sprung! Ok, it hasn’t, but in a few days the local groundhog will tell us whether we’ll be suffering through six more weeks of winter or not. Be prepared ahead of that pesky groundhog and get your yard ready for spring. Amazon has the Step2 Naturally Playful sandbox on sale for $59.12, from a regular price of $111.99.

If you have little kids, a sandbox in their backyard is a dream. I know, because I’ve had a few. When my older kids were toddlers, we had something just like this, which was perfect for them to play in for hours. I could put the lid on at the end of the play session, to ensure local cats weren’t making it a litter box and to keep out water. I eventually moved to a house that had a built-in sandbox and sold the old sandbox for a good price at a garage sale. These things keep their value.

This one from Step2 holds up to 200lbs of sand and has a natural look that won’t clutter up your landscaped yard. It even has little molded seats for the kids who don’t like to get right in there and get dirty. My kids liked getting dirty, so they sat right in the sandbox.

It has great reviews on Amazon, all the moms and kids love it:

Thoroughly researched sandboxes for my 2-year old and this one came out on top, not disappointed. Large enough for him to play in, small enough to fit on our deck… The lid is designed to shed water (other sandboxes with flat lids will collect/pool water), we’ve had a few summer storms and no water has gotten in and soaked the sand.

I of course price compared on other sites and Amazon’s price came out on top. Walmart has a similar, although not as nice looking, sand box on for $69.93, which is the second lowest price I found it for. Amazon’s price is $10 cheaper. Sears has the same one as Amazon selling for $99.99.

Amazon will also ship this sandbox to you for free as well, so that’s a nice bonus to get you ready for the warmer weather ahead. If sand isn’t your thing, I’ve also seen it where parents have filled it up with other sensory items – rice for example – and kept it in their basement playroom.

Clearance Tents From $34 @ Walmart.ca & Free Shipping!

Posted by on January 4, 2015 at 8:59 AM

Clearance Tents From $34 @ Walmart.ca & Free Shipping!

The other day, when bumping this post about the Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo for $75 from Walmart (which is now available again, by the way), I noticed that there were a number of other tent deals on their clearance pages. Some items have been reduced to clear so there will be limited stock, and all of these tents come with free shipping from Walmart.ca too.

If you click the above link, you’ll see some of the regular priced tents as well as the clearance ones. I’m going to highlight the best offers that I can see on site. Here they are:

Ventura 10ftx 8ft Family Dome Tent was $69.97 now $50 & free shipping – this tent has just the one compartment and sleeps 5 people (pictured top right).

18’ x 9’ x 70” HYBRID FAMILY DOME TENT was $148 now $95 & free shipping – this is a big one (pictured on the bottom of the image above)! It’s reported to sleep 10 people.

Jack Wolfskin Yosemite II Tent was $300 now $195 & free shipping – this seems to be a more expensive brand name when it comes to tents (sorry, I don’t personally know a lot about outdoor stuff)! It’s a 2 person real dome tent. Ignore the “assembled product dimensions” on the Walmart page, this tent is definitely longer than 24” when assembled. Clearance Tents From $34 @ Walmart.ca & Free Shipping!

Honourable mention: the Ventura 9ft x 8ft Sport Dome Tent (for 4 people and pictured top left) is not in the clearance section but it’s a steal for only $34 with free shipping from Walmart. If you’re looking for a basic tent for a young kid, this could be just the ticket. It’s got limited stock online, so it may not last for long at this price.

Price Comparing

Because I am mentioning a wide range of styles and brands in the post above, it’s up to you to check out each individual price before you buy. For example, comparing to tent deals sold by Amazon.ca or on Canadian Tire, you can have a glance at similar models and compare the costs. I believe that the Ventura brand may possibly be unique to Walmart, I can’t see it anywhere else online in Canada, so it’s hard to compare like for like on these particular models.

Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo Only $75 @ Walmart Clearance! Quick!

Posted by on January 2, 2015 at 1:45 PM

Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo Only $75 @ Walmart Clearance! Quick!

BUMP – now down to only $75 & free shipping from Walmart! And as it is in the “clearance” section, it may not last long as this price.

If you are looking to spend sometime under the stars this coming summer, take a peek at this Ventura 9 Piece Family Camp Combo at Walmart, a great deal at $97.94 only $75!

This camping set comes with everything you need to enjoy a good night sleep in the great outdoors this summer. In addition to the 6 person tent, it also comes with 1 sun shade, 2 adult sleeping bags, 2 travel sized pillows & 2 folding chairs.  The sleeping bags are rated for -45 degrees. Like all tents, it also comes with a rain fly (partial) that allows for better ventilation and movement of air inside tent.

The 6 person tent is ample room for a family of 4-5 with room for storage and is rain resistant, always a plus just in case. The manufacturer has recommended 2 people to assemble or disassemble.

Although I haven’t personally used this tent, at this price if you were to get two seasons out of it, then it was money well spent.

One item that is included that I think you could put to good use outside the campgrounds is the sun shade. If you coach soccer or if your child plays soccer, you know how hot it can get on the sidelines. I’ve noticed more and more of these popping up at the local soccer pitches and I think its a great idea. It keeps the sun off the players and gives them a common area to congregate.

Another spot I think the sun shade could come in handy is the beach. Its always nice to be able to create a little bit of shade when your planning on spending the day by the surf.

The majority of the reviews on this product are very positive, like this one:

Bought this as a Father’s Day gift for my husband. He took our son camping and loved it. Tent was bigger than expected!

As always, Walmart offers free shipping with no minimum required.
