July 22 Up To 50% Off Back To School

Posted by on July 22, 2013 at 7:00 PM Up To 50% Off Back To School

Get up to 50% off back to school items at now.

I was originally going to write this deal last week. I saw that they had a sale, with 50% off back to school supplies, and I started to write it until I realized they had only two things out of a long list of items actually on sale. This ticked me off a little bit, so I emailed them to ask them why they advertise this sale as if it was a big sale, when only two entire items were on sale. They were cordial and nice, but not helpful. I see that they may have taken mine and others concerns to heart, and now this is actually a sale, with quite a few items up to 50% off, not just two.

While not everything on their list is on sale, I price-compared a few of their regular-priced items and found that they were still actually cheaper than they are elsewhere, like this Roxy Flybird backpack, which is only $29.99, but I didn’t see it for less than $35, even at Roxy itself.

All of their The Baby Pea backpacks are on for 26% off, like this one in olive, lime and mid green. Built tough with flexible and accessible space inside, these backpacks also look good on the outside. Was $53.99, now $39.99.

This Canon All in One printer has everything you need in an all-in-one. I price compared this one as well, and’s suggested retail price of $129.99, is what it is going for at other stores like Canon or Best Buy. They have it on sale for $84.99.

Guess what else? You’ll get free shipping and rewards on what you buy at, plus you can use Bargainmoose’s exclusive coupon code to get $10 off your purchase over $50.

Canon eStore Canada: FREE Shipping on All Orders Over $15 + More Deals

Posted by on June 3, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Canon eStore Canada: FREE Shipping on All Orders Over $15 + More Deals

Canon Canada is shipping you all their awesome products for FREE!

Here are a few of the deals you can find from Canon:

Well, almost all of their products will be shipped for FREE. Anything under $14.99 won’t be free but I’ve gotta tell you, most things from Canon are more than that.

Canon, in my professional opinion, is one of the handful of companies that make a ton of things and make almost all of them well. There are companies out there who make tons of disparate products but don’t make any of them overly well. If you make refrigerators, jet engines and phones, it seems like something is going to have to suffer. And yes, Canon makes a lot of things but the ones that are really out of their realm of expertise are mostly project type ideas instead of products. I think the reason for this is that most of their products are optics based. Projectors, cameras, video cameras, scanners and, oddly enough, binoculars. Sure they make printers and calculators but most of their products are in the same kind of field.

So if you’re looking for a new camera or a pair of binoculars, make sure you check out the great gear at Canon Canada’s eShop.

Epson Canada: Save on Printers, Scanners & Projectors + FREE Shipping on Orders Over $150

Posted by on May 13, 2013 at 7:00 PM

Epson Canada: Save on Printers, Scanners & Projectors + FREE Shipping on Orders Over $150

Need a projector to watch the NHL Playoffs? How about a new scanner or printer? Perfect. Epson Canada has what you need!

Epson makes great products. My first home printer was an Epson desk printer and it was great. It lasted forever. In fact, the only reason I stopped using it was because it used the old parallel port and I got a computer without one. I don’t see them nearly as much in desktop situations anymore but more in big business plotters and the like. I do see a lot of their projectors in business situations though.

Here are a few of the deals available. Remember, if your purchase is over $150, shipping is FREE!

At some point, as soon as I pay off my insurance company imposed (no, I’m not bitter) bathroom renovation, my next project is to finish my basement and you can rest assured that a 1080p projector will be part of the reno. There’s nothing like gaming or watching a movie on a ten foot wide screen! If you’re already or are about to be in home-theater mode, you should definitely check out the stuff at Epson!

Canada Computers & Electronics: $110 Off Brother All-in-One Printer (Now $140)

Posted by on May 5, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Canada Computers & Electronics: $110 Off Brother All in One Printer (Now $140)

Whether you’re an IT goon at a huge company or just starting up a small business, this printer and the price offered by Canadian Computers is awesome.

The Brother MFC-7460DN laser printer is normally $250, but you get it for $140 after the $110 savings!

I spend a decent amount of time in my day job configuring and installing printers. I’ve installed a lot of Brother MFC-7460DNs. The fact that most of the thousands of independently-owned locations that I support have chosen this printer, and that I can pick it out pf the pack, speaks volumes for it. I’ve never used one personally, but I’ve set a lot of them up and they are a dream to set up. Their BRAdmin tool makes it the easiest network printer to set up, hands down.

This is, as I mentioned, an All-in-One unit that can really act as the central piece of equipment in an office. It faxes, prints, scans and copies. The network features mean that you can easily share it out to all the computers on the network. It also allows you to make changes to the network independent of the printer. Very helpful.

Shipping will depend on where you are having your order delivered. Just to use as an example, to ship this All-in-One Printer to Saskatchewan, the fee would be $25.60.

BestBuy Canada: Get $70 off Select Printers with Purchase of a Laptop, Desktop or Tablet

BestBuy Canada: Get $70 off Select Printers with Purchase of a Laptop, Desktop or Tablet

In the market for a new Laptop, Desktop or Tablet? Of course you are. So why don’t you pick up a printer for $70 off at Best Buy Canada?

As far as I can tell, you can pick any computer or tablet and get this deal. There are two printers available with this deal:

I think the HP is clearly the better printer here but Canon makes good stuff too. There was a similar PIXMA printer floating around recently that got some bad reviews but it looks like this one is getting better reviews. Keep in mind though that it is a bargain priced “all-in-one” so if you’re planning on printing pictures or high quality graphics, this isn’t the printer for you. The HP printer is probably your best bet for that kind of stuff as it is specifically a photo printer. Shipping is FREE!

Staples Canada: FREE Keurig Mini Plus Brewing System w/Purchase of ANY Printer Over $199

Staples Canada: FREE Keurig Mini Plus Brewing System w/Purchase of ANY Printer Over $199

Do you need a new printer? Do you like coffee? You do?! Well then Staples has a deal for you!

 Click here to shop for printers @

  • Coupon Code: 74083
  • Discount: Buy any printer over $199, get a FREE Keurig Mini Plus Brewing System
  • Expiry: 16th April 2013

To get this, add item #374648 to your cart and use the above coupon code. There are a lot of printers here but the few I tried adding to my cart shipped for free.

I suspect most people reading this don’t want or need a $200 printer for their home. But then again I don’t really know you all that well. Maybe you do. I’m not here to judge. In any event, I suspect this is going to be more of a small business sell. I know at my office we have… Wait… Seven? Yeah, I think we have seven Keurig machines. People love these things. Problem is that they are quite pricey. Even the Keurig Mini Plus that were talking about here is $100. I don’t drink coffee so maybe it’s just me, but if I had the chance, I’d be picking up a $19.99 Walmart special percolator or a $10 french press.

But if you need a printer anyways or that old one you have has been acting up, why not upgrade and get a new coffee machine while you’re at it? Staples carries all kinds of printers from all kinds of manufacturers so there is something for every size of business. Whether you run a convenience store and you need a printer for the back office or you have a hundred people and need to add another printer, Staples will have the right choice.

October 29 Save $110 on a Brother Colour LED Printer (Save 37%)

Posted by on October 29, 2012 at 4:00 AM Save $110 on a Brother Colour LED Printer (Save 37%)

Print like a pro and save money like a cheapskate with this Brother printer from NewEgg Canada.

This is quite a good sale and as such has been limited to 5 per customer. Darn, I was going to order a baker’s dozen. The printer was $299.99 but like I mentioned you save $110 which brings your price to $189.99.

You’ll notice that his is an LED printer as opposed to a laser printer. The two actual;;y work in quite a similar way but LED has one major advantage! The laser printer uses laser light to “paint” the blank areas of the page you are printing on to the print drum. The toner doesn’t go where the light has touched. This means that the laser has to mechanically move back and forth to hit the right areas. The LED printers use a stationary strip of LEDs that span the length of the drum and therefore do not have to move.

This printer is more geared towards business, it seems. Here are some features:

  • Up to 19 ppm
  • 600 x 2400 dpi Black Print Quality
  • Ethernet
  • Up to 25,000 pages monthly
  • 64 MB Memory, std.

    Staples Canada: Save $60 on HP Officejet 4500 Colour Inkjet All in One Printer Now $39.96

    Staples Canada is offering $60 of HP Officejet 4500 Colour Inkjet All-in-One Printer. Originally $99.96, the printer is on sale for $39.96.

    This printer actually has pretty good reviews. With 38 reviews it ranks a solid 4.0/5.

    Here is one such review:

    Have had no problems at all with this printer since its installation almost a year ago. Works well, prints quickly and print quality is perfect.
    One of the more economical printers “ink-wise”.

    I had trouble finding this printer in Canada, but I did end up finding it a few places. The cheapest elsewhere was at for $79.99. Everywhere else it was between $89.99 and $129.99. So this, I declare, is a VERY good price!

    I actually need a new printer. Every second day I have a strong desire to throw mine out the window of my 17th floor apartment and watch gravity at work.

    September 4 Labour Day Sale on PCs, Laptops and Accessories (Save up to 76%)

    Posted by on September 4, 2012 at 5:00 AM Labour Day Sale on PCs, Laptops and Accessories (Save up to 76%)

    Even the equipment manufacturers are celebrating Labour day with some sales. HP Canada is giving some deep discounts on a handful of products.

    There are six products on sale. Here they are:

    On top of these ridiculously good deals they all have free shipping. If you aren’t interested in these specific deals they also have free shipping for the entire site.

    HP is doing some cool stuff with these TouchSmart PCs. The biggest selling point is that they are touch sensitive like your tablet or smartphone. Now obviously it would get tiring to hold your arm out past they keyboard and the mouse to touch the screen but there are some use cases that make the touch screen convenient. Of course there is gaming and even scrolling long web pages or documents. I know someone who has one of these and they said it came with some video editing software that makes good use of the touch screen.

    Of course Windows 8 is coming out soon and it’s new default interface is very touch screen friendsly so this is kind of futureproofing to an extent.

    Another cool feature is that these are all-in-one PCs, meaning that you don’t have a screen attached to a tower, you just have a screen. Everything that would normally be in the tower, the hard drive, the motherboard, the DVD Drive, is built into the back of the screen.

    Anywho, take a look and choose your new computer!

    Monoprice: 20% off all Ink and Toner Cartridges with Coupon Code

    Posted by on August 22, 2012 at 9:00 AM

    Monoprice: 20% off all Ink and Toner Cartridges with Coupon Code

    You always need to refill your printers, whether it’s your inkjet at home or your work laser printer or, at the prices nowadays, your home laser printer. Why not buy them for 20% off the already low prices at

    The coupon code is as follows:

    • Coupon Code: BTSINK
    • Discount: Save 20% off of ink and toner cartridges
    • Expiry: Unknown

    MonoPrice has an impressive selection of ink and toner cartridges. They have a page to find the right cartridge that has printers from manufacturers I’ve never even heard of. It looks like they even have cartridges for some specialty printers.

    As with everything on MonoPrice, you can save some serious money when you buy their products in quantity. I don’t suspect anyone is going to buy 50 toner cartridges but it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility that you’d want to order two or three. Actually, you really should always have a second cartridge on hand just in case you run out. I can’t tell you how many sites I support in my day job that run out of toner and have to live without printing until they get another cartridge. Losing the ability to print can be really detrimental to a lot of businesses.

    It’s important to note that these cartridges are not OEM. They are cartridges that have been recycled and refilled. The quality of these cartridges is generally very good and you save a lot of money over the insane prices that the OEMs charge. A few years ago someone made a graph of the price of printer ink, vs. other liquids such as human blood, penicillin, Red Bull, bottled water and crude oil. Disgustingly enough, printer ink is nearly double the price per milliliter for the next most expensive liquid on the graph, human blood. Crude Oil (at the time) didn’t even register on this chart!

    If you enjoy paying more to print your kid’s school report than you would to buy blood to keep your kid alive, go right ahead. As for me, I’m going to use MonoPrice and save my money to buy precious, precious blood. For more deals check out our Monoprice Coupon Codes page at Bargainmoose!

    This is Staples Canada’s Saturday door crasher and is is pretty awesome. Why, you may ask, has you been given this sweet, sweet deal for free? Well, it’s because we here at Bargainmoose love you.

    The three products are:

    There are a couple of things you need to know about this sale. First off this is only valid on 18 August 2012 starting right now (3:00AM ET) and will run for 24 hours.

    Second thing you need to know is that I think this is a traditional “door crasher” sale. That means there are limited quantity. If you are looking at this article and want the products above, get them now. Don’t come back later because the item could very well be sold out.

    I’m going to be working on a TOP SECRET PROJECT for you beautiful moosers and for it I’ll need a computer. You may remember me mentioning that I’ve gotten rid of my computer and only have a tablet. The tablet is great and, so far, it has worked for almost everything I have needed to do but when it comes to TOP SECRET PROJECTS, I’m gonna need a real PC. That being said, this computer isn’t blazingly fast or super high performance but it’ll do for my TOP SECRET PROJECT.

    Posted by on August 15, 2012 at 2:00 PM Up to 57% Off Select All in One Printers (Save $130)

    Amazon Canada has some great All-in-one printer deals for back to school. They are all inkjet printers and you can get them with an assortment of features and prices. Something for everyone on Bargainmoose!

    There are five printers available:

    As usual since these are all over $25 they ship for free from Amazon.

    Everyone seems to be putting printers on sale but this is the only sale I’ve seen recently (that I remember, at least) that only has all-in-one printers. My current printer is a $30 throw-away Lexmark printer that I’m pretty sure has been sitting in disuse for so long it’s completely clogged and useless. The cartridges probably cost more than a new printer.

    My dad’s printer, on the other hand, is an all-in-one. It’s a pretty old printer and he almost never uses is except for the occasional print job but from time to time he has the need to scan something and it’s great to have the scanner feature available. It’d be the same for the fax and photo printing for a lot of people as well. I suspect that not everyone needs a fax every day but when you need it, it’s great to have it.

    Now this sale’s primary purpose, I suppose, is back to school. All the stuff I mentioned earlier (fax, scanner, copier, etc…) are great features to have, especially packed into one small unit. When I was in college I more than once had to go from my place to the school to use a printer or pay them 10 cents to send a fax. I wish I had one of these.

    So no matter what your price range or use case, there is something here for you. Check it out and pick one up while the deal is hot!

    Laser vs Inkjet Printer: Cost Comparison

    Posted by on July 12, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    Laser vs Inkjet Printer: Cost Comparison

    Many people automatically assume that inkjet printers are cheaper because, well… they are cheaper. But when it comes to the costs over the life of the printer, that could be another matter entirely. Here are some things to think about when you are choosing what type of printer to purchase:

    Initial purchase price:

    The cost to buy a basic inkjet printer ranges from around $30 for the cheapest model.

    The cost to buy a laser printer ranges from around $70 (for the cheapest model).

    As you can see,  basic laser printers are more expensive.  At least initially they are. The printer I bought recently is a Brother multi-function all in one (refurbished) for around $300.

    Here are some other pros and cons of laser vs inkjet printers as it is not simply price that you should look at when consider one or the other:

    Laser vs Inkjet Printer: Cost ComparisonPROS of Laser Printers:

    Laser printers print documents quickly and smudge free.   They can do this in high volume too.

    PROS of Inkjet Printers:

    Some inkjet printers can print colour more easily than laser printers, some inkjet printers can print photos (provided you have photo paper), and they are smaller and more easily portable.  They are cheaper to manufacture than laser printers.

    CONS of Laser Printers:

    Laser printers are pretty bulky and heavy, some with a large footprint.   Not a great idea if your office is small or there’s nowhere to put it.

    According to Now Toronto, a study done by Queensland University of Technology, certain laser printers may give off ultrafine particles that may be equivalent in terms of lung damage to inhaling a cigarette.

    Also, Now Toronto states that certain laser printers use at least over 30 times the electricity when compared to an inkjet printer for the same job.  They are energy zappers, that’s for sure (unless you get an Energy Star one).  But they use the same amount of energy as an inkjet printer when in idle mode.  Best idea is to turn off your powerbar when you’re not using your printer to save electricity.

    CLaser vs Inkjet Printer: Cost ComparisonONS of Inkjet Printers:

    Inkjet printers may run out of inkjet cartridges fairly quickly which means you’ll likely be buying cartridges quite regularly.  Inkjet printers print things s-l-o-w-l-y so if you’re the impatient type, inkjet printers might not be for you.

    Maintenance purchase price:

    For inkjet printers, you need to buy inkjet cartridges.  According to PC World Business, the price per page of an inkjet printer is $0.20 for colour printing or $0.07 to $0.08 per page for strictly black and white.  It might be cheaper if you ensure that you re-use your cartridges and just go to an inkjet place to refill the cartridges.

    For laser printers, you need to buy the toner cartridge.  Also according to PC World Business, the price per page for a laser printer is $0.06 per page.

    A 3 toner pack of cartridges can be bought at Costco for about $187 including tax, or $62 per cartridge.  I have been using my refurbished Brother MFC laser all in one printer for almost one year and have printed off stacks and stacks of paper for school.  So far, I have used one cartridge (the one that came with the printer) and am on my second cartridge (which I bought at Costco).

    Conclusion?  Inket or Laser?

    Since the cost per page is pretty similar in terms of maintenance costs (6 cents for inkjet vs 7-8 cents for laser), there are many factors to consider here, including important factors that don’t only involve initial cost or maintenance cost.  If your printing needs are pretty low volume, you like the options of printing photos, and you would rather be kinder to the environment, then the inkjet printer may be for you.

    If you print high volume stuff and need the speed of a laser printer, this may be for you, but you need to remember that the electricity a laser printer uses can be very high.

    For both, we need to be cognizant to remember not to simply throw away toner cartridges or inkjet cartridges in the garbage because they leak chemicals that aren’t good for us… chemicals that we don’t want to be drinking as part of our water.

    Bargainmoosers, do you use Inkjet or Laser and which one do you prefer?
