Chapters Indigo Canada: 2 for $10 Illustrated Biographies

Chapters Indigo has a great sale on right that will save you on some reading material.  Get any two illustrated biographies for just $10.

There are 72 different titles to choose from and all of them are illustrated to help kids learn about famous people.

The regular price of these books are between $5.99 each to $6.99 each.  Depending on which ones you choose for this deal, you will be getting between $1.98 off to $3.98 off for every 2 books purchased. Not a bad deal at all.

You will see biographies on people still living such as Michelle Obama and Bill Gates, to important people from the past like Albert Einstein and Anne Oakley.

My boys are obsessed with Disney movies so they would love to learn about Walt Disney through this Who Was Walt Disney? book. I am a huge Elvis fan so I would also get this Who Was Elvis Presley? book.

They even have a Who Is Dolly Parton? book!  Now this one you most likely would need for an actual school project but the country singer lovers out there would be a fan maybe!

If you want to add some of these to an Easter basket, you can get next day delivery.

You will get free shipping when your order reaches $25 or more at the checkout.

Book Outlet Canada: 50/50 Section Shakeup

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Book Outlet Canada: 50/50 Section Shakeup

Book Outlet has a 50/50 section where you will find 50 great books on sale at an additional 50% off.  It lasts for two weeks at a time and the books usually have some sort of theme.  This time is  bit different.  They still have 50 items on for 50% off but this time it is a variety of titles and items to choose from without a set theme.

One of the big shakeups for this section this time around is that they are offering books, box sets and activity kits all at an additional 50% off.  Usually it is just books.  Looking through I have already started a wish list for Mother’s Day to give to my husband.

Here are a few on my wish list:

There are also some great kids books included this time that would be a nice addition to their Easter baskets.  Easter is 2 weeks away now and Book Outlet ships fairly fast.  You would still have time to grab  few items for the little ones instead of just loading their baskets full of chocolate.

The cost of shipping is $3.99 and an additional $0.75 per item.

Additionally, use one of our exclusive Book Outlet coupon codes to save another $5 to $20 on your entire order.

WagJag Canada: Style and Home or Canadian Gardening Magazine Subscription Up To 52% Off

Posted by on March 27, 2014 at 10:00 AM

WagJag Canada: Style and Home or Canadian Gardening Magazine Subscription Up To 52% Off

WagJag has done it again.  Yet another awesome magazine deal to take advantage of.  You will be able to save up to 52% on a one year subscription to either Style at Home or Canadian Gardening magaine.

There are 2 options to choose from:

  • $12 for a one year subscription to Style at Home (a $24.95 value)
  • $11 for a one year subscription to Canadian Gardening (a $22.95 value)

Both of these deals have free shipping with them and you will get your first issue within 6-8 weeks of activation.

I currently get the Style at Home magazine from the last time WagJag had a deal and I love it. It offers tips on home decor ideas, interior design trends, kitchen and bath designs, bedroom makeovers, food and entertaining recipes and more.

The Canadian Gardening magazine subscription is something that interests me.  Most gardening magazines are geared towards the US so they have tips for their weather.  They also are geared towards their seasons and it is so different in Canada with our weather.  In fact, even different provinces have different weather so they focus on that, which is great.  You will find all sort of tips including tips on garden design (inside and out), vegetable gardens, healthy recipes and more.

The Globe and Mail: 50% off Globe Unlimited for 6 Months

Posted by on March 25, 2014 at 11:30 PM

The Globe and Mail: 50% off Globe Unlimited for 6 Months

There is a fantastic deal happening right now for The Globe and Mail Canada.  Save 50% for the first six months of a Globe and Mail ‘Globe Unlimited’ subscription.

The first six months of your subscription will cost you just $9.99 per month. After that, the rate will automatically increase to $19.99 per month, which is the regular subscription rate. These prices do not include taxes, which varies depending on your province. This offer appears to be available to new and current Globe and Mail subscribers.

The Globe Unlimited subscription will include:

  • Availability to all platforms (computer, smartphone & tablets)
  • Full access to Globeandmail.com
  • The Globe dashboard tool
  • Access to exclusive subscriber loyalty events, shows, concerts and pre-sale tickets (British Columbia and Ontario only)

My husband used to get The Globe and Mail delivered to our house every Saturday and while I read the Style section he would raid the Sports, Business, Travel, and other sections he enjoyed. While we no longer get the newspaper he likes to still keep track of the news online. I think the ‘Globe Unlimited’ subscription would make an excellent gift for him so that he can fully access all that this newspaper has to digitally offer.

Amazon Canada: Hunger Games Trilogy just $25.08 & Free Shipping (was $40)

Posted by on March 20, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Hunger Games Trilogy just $25.08 & Free Shipping (was $40)

If you are one of the many people that fell in love with the Hunger Games movies but still haven’t read the books, you are in luck.  You can get the entire Hunger Games Trilogy for 37% off the regular price right now over at Amazon Canada.

The Hunger Games trilogy was $40 and is now just $25.08.  That is 37% off the regular price which is a pretty great deal for something so popular right now.

This trilogy includes: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.  At the low price of $25.08, it works out to just about $8 a book and you also get the box set to hold them all. There are a lot of the set left but I suspect at this price, they may go pretty quick.

Just to make sure this was the best deal out there I did some price comparison. I found it at Chapters Indigo Canada on sale for $30, I also found it at Walmart Canada for $41.98 and they were already out of stock at that price.

I have to confess, I have watched both the first and the second movie but I have yet to actually read the series.  My goal is to read the series before the next movie comes out.

This Hunger Games trilogy will get free shipping which is an added bonus.
