A Few Father’s Day Ideas, Deals & Coupons

A Few Father’s Day Ideas, Deals & Coupons

Father’s Day is coming up on the 21st June 2015. Here on Bargainmoose, we’ve already been throwing some gift ideas at you, naturally all with a budget in mind. I know it’s still a few weeks away, but it’s always worth preparing for these events in advance, making sure you’re not paying over the odds by buying a gift at the last minute. Here are a few ideas to get you going:

How About Some Tickets?

If the dad in question is a fan of any particular artist, comedian or sports team, why not consider buying some event tickets? There are a number of venues that you can browse to check this out, and some also have coupon codes to get a bit of a saving. Here’s a list to get you started.

And here’s a tip – if you order the tickets online but cannot get the physical tickets in your hand in time to present them for Father’s Day, do this instead – cut out or print out a picture of the artist/team and pop it into the Father’s Day card.

How About a Massage?

To me, going for a massage always seems a lot more of a feminine thing to do, or a Mother’s Day gift. But this is just silliness inside my head – there’s no reason why dads shouldn’t have professional massages too. Margarita wrote this post about Wayspa gifts cards from Costco with digital delivery – you can get $100 in Wayspa gift cards for only $74.99. Then, the Father can choose where to get a lovely treatment.

How About His Mug on a Mug?

I’ll not repeat the whole deal, but the other day I wrote about personalised mugs. You can pick these up for only $10 from either Walmart or Blacks. Slap a photo of the Father on there, and gift it!

How About Something to Eat?

If the Father in question is a chocaholic (like my partner!) then he might appreciate the gift of something along those lines. When it comes to chocolate, you’ve got a few choices here:

Chocolate of the Month Club via Amazingclubs.ca – you can go for a 3 month subscription for $134.85, but if you go for a 6 or 12 month, you can use the coupon code DAD1525FD for an extra $25 discount. Shipping is free from these guys. Obviously this isn’t the cheapest deal in the world… but it all depends on how much you are willing to spend on the Father.

Purdys have a special section on their site dedicated to Father’s Day items, but sadly there are no special offers or coupon codes on those. I’d recommend signing up to email updates on our Purdys coupon page and you will be instantly alerted if we find a coupon for these.

But if they’re not a chocolate lover, how about some fruit? We’ve got a number of coupons on the go for Edible Arrangements, including one for totally free shipping.

What are you planning on getting for Father’s Day? Or have you already made your purchase?

Free Download: Purdys “Around the Chocolatier’s Table” Recipe Book

Posted by on February 8, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Free Download: Purdys “Around the Chocolatiers Table” Recipe Book

I was in the process of updating our Purdys coupon page here and I was browsing round their site, with my mouth watering as I did so. I noticed a banner on their front page about the download of a free eBook. It’s called, “Around the Chocolatier’s Table,” and it is written by Gary Mitchell, Purdys head chocolatier.

You can either read the book online or download a copy for yourself, and read it at your own leisure. The aim of this free eBook from Purdys is the following:

Free Download: Purdys “Around the Chocolatiers Table” Recipe Book

That sounds great! Who says you cannot have chocolate with every course?

Glancing through the eBook, there are recipes such as:

  • Brie & chocolate tartlets
  • Spicy chocolate chicken thighs
  • Macadamia crusted Mahi-Mahi & lemon peppercorn sauce
  • Purdys dark chocolate & port beef wellingtons
  • Himalayan pink salt caramel and English toffee cheesecake

I’ve got a little quote from my partner, what he said when I read out the latter item on that bulleted list:

That sounds pretty nice.

Understatement of the year! Some of those recipes sound definitively amazing and the images in the book are pure and simply food porn. Honestly, I’ve only ever used chocolate in desserts… I’ve never had the chance to try my hand at using it in other courses too. I’d love to give some of these recipes a try. I don’t think my partner would complain, in the least!

While you’re on the above page on Purdys, you’ll notice that there are a few other free publications to download too. For example:

A chocolate Martini collection! “Heaven… I’m in heaven…!”

Purdy’s Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine (CLOSED)

Posted by on January 30, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Purdys Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine (CLOSED)

* Contest now closed, winner is Piroska! *

What would I do with $250 in Purdy’s chocolate? I would eat it of course! I don’t even know if I would share it. I can speak from experience as I had three boxes at Christmas and I told my kids they couldn’t have any. It was just too good to let children eat it – they are happy with chocolate from the dollar store! Me, on the other hand, I like the good stuff and Purdy’s is my absolute favourite chocolate in the world. In fact, my mom got each of the kids Purdy’s lollipops, which I have had stored in my desk for when they are truly good and deserve a treat, and confession time, I ate one yesterday myself. This chocolate is irresistible.

I wish I could find a way to win this contest, but unfortunately, I can’t. But, all of our loyal Moosers have a chance to win $250 of your choice of chocolate from Purdy’s.

If I had my choice of $250 in Purdy’s chocolate, I’d choose:

the Almost Perfect box – a box of imperfect chocolates because even though its not perfect, I bet its an amazing 3lbs of chocolate ($39.95)

the Himalayan pink salt caramels - these are my absolute favourite and the combination of sweet and salty is so to die for ($19). I’d probably get myself five boxes of these.

Hedgehogs – I might be nice and get these for my kids, or they can have maybe one ($30 for 20pcs). These are so smooth in your mouth!

Sweet Georgia Browns – My mom would crucify me if I didn’t get her a box of these, as they are her absolute favourite. These are like turtles but a million times better. ($17)

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, we can’t forget our sweeties either, and I’d probably get my husband True Love Velvet Heart ($30), and since I’d be the one to win the prize, I’d get him to give me one too Purdys Contest: Win $250 Worth of Chocolate For Your Valentine (CLOSED)

With the $8 I’d have left, I’d get two of these marshmallow hearts – one for me and another one for me ($2.95).

How to win this prize?

Have a look around Purdy’s site and tell me what chocolate makes your mouth water!

Purdy’s Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Free Shipping for No Minimum Monday (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 8, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Purdys Canada Promo Code: Exclusive Free Shipping for No Minimum Monday (EXPIRED)

I’m so excited to tell you about this exclusive free shipping deal we have today for No Minimum Monday. Purdy’s rarely offers coupon codes and rarely does free shipping. In fact, their Black Friday offer was to have a shipping threshold of a $65 minimum order. Otherwise, you’d have to pay a flat rate of $10 for shipping. They also sometimes reduce that flat rate down to $5, but today you pay $0 for shipping from Purdy’s, thanks to our exclusive coupon code!

Click here to shop @ Purdys.com now

  • Coupon Code: NOMIN_MOOSE
  • Discount: Free shipping
  • Expiry: 8th December 2014

If you’ve never tried Purdy’s chocolate, I have to admit you are losing out, big time. I tried it for the first time last Christmas at my mom’s. I put their salted caramel in my mouth and it was honestly one of the best things I’ve tasted. She had a large box on the table with all sorts of assorted Purdy’s chocolates, but that one was so good, I needed to eat whichever ones were left in the box. Unfortunately, my brother ate the other one and I think I was miffed at him for about an hour after that. I had to console myself with the other chocolates in the box, which were also divine, but just not as mind-blowing as that salted caramel.

They have these Christmas Himalyan pink salt caramels for $19. Guess whose mouth these are going to reach? Mine, all mine!

I don’t have a Purdy’s near me, so today is the day I will be shopping for myself and for gifts so I don’t have to pay shipping or reach a minimum.

If there is someone you love who you want to show it to, Purdy’s is the way to do it. Their mini favourites box looks right up my alley and I see a salted caramel is included. Their hedgehogs are also very popular. This box sells for only $8.

You can also get the hedgehogs on their own, and this is a good chocolate for someone who likes creamy in the middle. These are beautiful. The smallest box is $12 and the largest is $30.

If you are a fan of orange chocolate, you don’t want to miss this orange slices box ($19).

Be sure to check out their Christmas collection as you will not be disappointed. Also, always check back to the Purdy’s coupon page on the forum for the latest in deals and coupons.

Purdy’s Chocolates Canada: Free Shipping on $65+

Posted by on November 25, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Purdys Chocolates Canada: Free Shipping on $65+

Purdy’s Chocolates never has free shipping deals – ever. So when we heard about this one we just had to post about it! Get free shipping online at Purdy’s when you spend $65 or more.

This is a very rare opportunity to stock up on the amazingly delicious Purdy’s chocolate if you do not live near one. I am a big fan of their chocolate with my favourite being the Sweet Georgia Browns. If you aren’t diabetic yet, these could very well send you there in a hurry. They are the most amazing and decadent treats ever. A six pack of Sweet Georgia Browns will cost you $13.50 and you will not regret a cent of it!

My husband is a big marzipan (almond paste with lots of sugar). The Purdy’s Marzipan Bar with dark chocolate has never failed to please. For three bars it costs $5.25.

With Christmas coming up you might want to check out their Christmas Gift Baskets which are sure to please the chocolate lover you know.

Purdys Coupon Code: Free Shipping (Spend $65)

Purdys Coupon Code: Free Shipping (Spend $65)

If you would like to order some delicious choccies from Purdys.com, make use of this new coupon code to get totally free shipping on a $65 spend!

Click here to use the Purdys coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: fs-may
  • Discount: Free shipping on a $65 spend
  • Expires: 29th May 2013

Shipping depends on what you buy, it seems to start at $10.95, I also see $15.95 on a larger order, so that’s a pretty decent saving. There doesn’t appear to be a threshold for free shipping at all, so this coupon code could come in handy. We don’t often see coupon codes for Purdys Chocolates, so I thought I would take the opportunity to let you guys know about this one – free shipping is always a treat.

During my recent pregnancy, I was diagnosed with pregnancy diabetes – I had no idea such a thing existed until they told me I had it! For the last few months, I had to go on a special diet to keep the baby’s weight down and to manage my blood sugars – and this really meant avoiding sweets and treats. I only had the baby a week ago, so I am sitting here looking at the absolutely delicious section of chocolates on Purdys right now, wondering how I can get my hands on some fab choccies asap!

These Mayans look luscious – priced at $18.95. I’d love to try the peanut butter ones – I had super peanut butter cravings during my pregnancy.

This could be a good idea to pre-order some chocolates for Father’s Day too – if the man in question happens to enjoy chocolate. My man is a chocoholic, so these Traditional Boxed Chocolates (pictured above) would go down a treat. Prices start at $25.95 for a 1 pound box, then on upwards from that.

Moving away from chocolate, this English Toffee looks scrumptious. You can get a small bag for $12.95 if you just want a taster, or a larger portion for $22.95.  The toffee would probably do wonders for my taste buds, but wouldn’t be so wonderful for my fillings!

You’ll find this Purdys coupon, and many others, on our Bargainmoose coupon forum. Don’t forget to check there before you buy anything online!

What about you? Chocaholic much?

Purdys Coupon Code For Totally Free Shipping!

Purdys Coupon Code For Totally Free Shipping!

Just in time for Mother’s Day Gifts next month (Sunday, 13th May 2012), Purdys has released a great coupon code for totally free shipping, with no minimum spend at all!

Click here to use the Purdys coupon code online

  • Coupon Code: freeship22
  • Discount: Free shipping, no minimum
  • Expires: Unknown

I tested the coupon on a pack of hedgehog chocolates which were only $10.95, and shipping was $9.95 – discounted to zero. As the expiry date on this coupon code is unknown to us, if you’re considering making an order, please make it sooner rather than later.

I am writing this post and I have not yet had my breakfast. My tummy is rumbling, looking at all the images of these lovely choccies floating across my screen! What are your favourite chocolates on there?

I like the sound of the pineapple creams, I’ve never tried those.

Thanks to Nicole for sharing this Purdys coupon code on our new pages!

Purdys Coupon Code: Free Shipping

Posted by on February 12, 2012 at 12:00 PM

Purdys Coupon Code: Free Shipping

With this Purdy’s coupon code, you can get free shipping on your online chocolate order of $49.95 or more!

Click here to use the Purdys coupon code online

  • Coupon Code: basket10 (Expired – possibly more Purdys coupons here)
  • Discount: Free shipping
  • Expires: Unknown

I did a test order of about $65 worth of Purdys choccies, I applied the coupon code, and it discounted the shipping from $14.95 to zero – nice one! While $49.95 might be a slightly high minimum spend for this kind of thing, it’s definitely worth pushing your order up to this level to get the free shipping.

If your order is a couple of dollars short of the $49.95, you could add something like the single bar of English toffee for $4.50 or the Hedgehogs for $9.95. I’m of the opinion that you might as well stick $10 of products on your order instead of spending $10+ on shipping. Purdys Coupon Code: Free Shipping

It’s Valentine’s Day this week… I’m hoping for some chocolates! I know it’s a pretty clichéd thing to get, but I’ve never received one of the heart shaped chocolate boxes.. ever! I’d really love one of those please! What do you hope for this Valentine’s Day?
