Walmart Canada: RCA Microwave Was $54 | Now $42 (FS to CP)

Walmart Canada has discounted the RCA 0.7 cubic foot counter-top microwave from $54 down to $42 with free shipping to your local Canada Post location. This is the cheapest microwave I can find at local Canadian retailers: it is perfect for back to school purchases for the dorm or as a new microwave for the home. You get to choose from two different colours.

Finding this exact model for price comparing was not easy but I did find it at London Drugs Canada priced at $69.99. Read the rest of this entry »

If you are in need of a new microwave for over your range, Home Depot has a hot deal available today only.

Looking around the web, I found that the regular price at some stores is even more than Home Depot’s regular price. You’ll save $100 and pay less than $200 for this little baby.

Samsung is really taking over the kitchen appliance market as I see them in more and more kitchens lately. Read the rest of this entry »

The Shopping Channel Canada: $100 Off Philips Digital Airfryer + Double Layer Accessory + Cookbook – Now Just $200 & Free Shipping With Promo Code (EXPIRED)

Posted by on July 12, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The Shopping Channel Canada: $100 Off Philips Digital Airfryer + Double Layer Accessory + Cookbook   Now Just $200 & Free Shipping With Promo Code (EXPIRED)

Can’t get enough of fried food? Then here’s a wicked deal from The Shopping Channel on a healthy deep fryer… that’s right — healthy! Right now, you can save $100 on the Philips digital airfryer: instead of $299.99, get it for just $199.99. Be sure to also enter The Shopping Channel promo code SHIP150 to have it shipped for free.

I have to admit that before seeing this deal, I had no idea that airfryer were even a thing. As it turns out, it’s exactly like a deep fryer except for the fact that it uses little to no oil. How awesome is that?

This means your food will turn out much healthier than if you were to actually deep fry it in a lot of oil. Don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s 100% healthy though but it’s still a better alternative for when that craving for deep fried food kicks in.

Basically, the Philips airfryer works by: “[combining] fast circulating, superheated air, a starfish design and optimal heating“. Check out Airfry Reviews for handy diagrams on the exact way that oil less fryers work.

The temperature is adjustable up to 200ºC (or 392ºF) and there is also a cooking timer that you can preset for up to 60 minutes. There are only 3 reviews at The Shopping Channel for this air fryer but they’re all 5/5 stars! Here’s one of the reviews:

I use it almost everyday … I love this machine! I have finally perfected crispy fries – took a few attempts but now I am addicted to fat free crispy fries. Have cooked a small roast, small chicken, steaks, chicken breasts … and my favorite has to be chicken wings.

On Philips‘ own site, the suggested retail price is of $349. I didn’t find this exact air fryer anywhere else but looking around, the cheapest air fryer I found is the Black & Decker air fryer for $169.99 at Canadian Tire. It’s certainly cheaper but it’s not digital and it doesn’t come with any accessories or cookbooks, which brings me to my next point: the Philips airfryer comes with both a double layer accessory and a cookbook! The latter is actually available for preview on The Shopping Channel’s product page. Under the picture of the airfryer, just click on “recipes” to open a PDF. Here’s a sample recipe of jerk chicken wings:

Shop.ca Cuisinart Mini-Prep Bundles Were $150 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 8, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Shop.ca Cuisinart Mini Prep Bundles Were $150 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

Shop.ca has discounted these cute little Cuisinart Bundles from $150 down to $109.99. Each bundle includes three small appliances: Mini-Prep Chopper/Grinder, Smart Stick 2-speed Hand Blender, and a Power Advantage 5-Speed Hand Mixer. Use our exclusive coupon code MOOSE40OFF100JULY to receive an extra $40 off each bundle. The discount applies at the final stage of checkout. That brings the bundle down to just $69.99 with free shipping.

You get to choose from three bundle colours:

This bundle is just right for anyone getting out on their own or who just needs to keep their appliance sizes down to match their apartment. Sometimes, apartments are so small these days that you really do not have the counter space for bigger appliances. If you have a small family, then these cute little appliances are bound to fulfill your needs.

The set comes with: a Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor, Cuisinart Smart Stick 2-Speed Hand Blender, and a Cuisinart Power Advantage Hand Mixer. The hand mixer comes with four accessories as well. There is a whisk attachment, blending attachment, chopper attachment, and a 16 oz. mixing/measuring beaker. The hand mixer comes with a spatula so you can scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Every little galley kitchen in apartments across Canada could use a bundle like this! It has everything you need to process, chop, blend, and whip food into submission. While I could not find these appliances bundles like this elsewhere, I did price compare them individually with other retailers.

Processor:

  • $49.99 @ Bed Bath & Beyond
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $39.99 – $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $41.99 @ Tiger Direct Canada

Stick Blender:

  • $54.99 @ Shop.ca

Hand Mixer:

  • $46.74 @ Hudson’s Bay Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $59.99 @ Bed Bath & Beyond
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada

As you can see from an individual item comparison, you are saving an absolute bundle on the bundle even with the original discount price. With that extra $40 off – I am having a hard time not buying this set! I am not a big fan of red, thus I would probably purchase the blue or the lime green. I rather like lime green myself, but the blue matches my pots and pans far better. I think I would opt for the blue set. Shop.ca Cuisinart Mini Prep Bundles Were $150 | Now $70 & Free Shipping I only wish one of these items would knead dough: then I would give up my stand mixer!

Best Buy Canada: Insignia 12″ Retro Table Was $100 | Now $40 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 27, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Insignia 12 Retro Table Was $100 | Now $40 (EXPIRED)

Today I am going to die as it is supposed to get up to 30+ degrees here in Nanaimo. My best friend is fan #1 and my second best friend is fan #2 and the runner up is my ceiling fan. If you need a new fan, pick up this gorgeous Insignia 12″ Retro table fan from best Buy Canada. Originally $99.99, this metal fan is on sale for $39.99. Receive free shipping as this product is over $25.

My fans are plastic, which is okay as they do their job but it is not exactly my preference. I like the look of metal. I like how metal is cool to the touch. Most of all, I like the durability of metal. If I kick my little plastic fan over, it is quite liable to break or at least get a split. Metal fans are durable: you can accidentally kick one and your foot will hurt more than the fan ever will.

The Insignia 12″ table fan features three fan speeds and oscillates. I am a lover of oscillation as i like to lie in bed with the fan blowing over the entire length of my body and then back again. Interesting enough, this little unit even includes a thermostat. It is a cool feature but we all know if you are using a fan then most likely ‘too hot’ is the only temperature you need to know: and you already know it.

I could not find this fan elsewhere in Canada but I did find that the fan has a $49.99 USD MSRP at Insignia. That is about $61 CAN, so I would say Best Buy’s regular retail price is a bit inflated. However, we have to remember that import goods often cost more up here than down in the USA.

As a child, I lived in front of a fan for the most part, and it was not because summers were hot. It was because I was often sick and ran a temperature. It seemed my permanent place was on the couch with my Raggedy Andy sheets and the fan blowing over me. I took comfort in that sound and now sleep with a fan on every single night. Let’s just say that a fan lasts only four years in my house.

Given the recent heat wave, I figured this was a pretty nice deal on a good looking and function fan.

I have done a fair bit of shopping at Shop.ca personally as they have a wide array of things I like. For a friend of mine, I purchased this set of Audio Technica ATH-M50X Headphones. If you look at review sites that use top 10 or top 20 headsets under $200 rankings, you will find this set of headphones always in the top two. They are an incredible set of headphones from a relatively unknown brand. Originally $199, these headphones would qualify for the $60 off $175 coupon code. They come down to just $139 plus tax. Amazon and Best Buy sell this headset for $199.

Vitamix is the most popular blender of our day. To say it is just a blender is a bit of an understatement. This baby crushes, pulverizes, and liquefies whatever you throw into its belly. The Pro Series 200 Blender is on sale from $629 down to $529. Use the $100 off $500 coupon code above to bring this Vitamix 200 blender down to $429. I found the same blender at Target.com (US) for $440 USD.

Do you have a cat? If so, then you are probably used to the shredded state his or her cat stand is perpetually in. I swear that my heavy boy has pretty much destroyed his current cat stand by stripping the screws holding it together under his swaying weight. Try out this gorgeous PawHut 60″ Multilevel Cat Tree Condo with Hammock that retails for $149 and is now $139. Use the $50 off $125 coupon code to save more. Pay just $89 for this upgrade to your cat’s current digs. I adore the cat paw print all over this stand and the price, for such a large unit, cannot be beat. On top of that, you would receive free shipping on this stand, which is no small savings as the stand is so heavy.

You can combine the coupons with other deals. Purchase one Imation A12 TDK TREKMicro Ultraportable Wireless Speaker and receive a second one for $35 off (they each cost $59.99). If you get your cart up to $100, then you can use the $40 off coupon as well.

Best Buy Canada: Lasko 10″ Floor Fan Was $25 | Now $15

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Best Buy Canada: Lasko 10 Floor Fan Was $25 | Now $15

Best Buy Canada has a one-day deal on air conditioners and fans. I picked out this affordable Lasko 10″ Floor Fan (505C) as a great deal for Moosers. Originally $24.99, the fan is now on sale for $14.99.

$15 is a great price for a 10″ fan. I could not find this fan elsewhere in Canada, but I did find it three places in the USA. The Lasko 505 10″ fan costs $21.08 @ Newegg.com, $17.96 @ Home Depot US, and $17.96 @ Amazon.com. All those prices are in USD and do not include shipping.

Let us talk shipping for a minute. This 10″ Lasko fan comes in below the $25 minimum for free shipping. I present two options. First, you can reserve and pick up at your local store. Secondly, and my favourite option, is purchase two of these fans ($14.99 x 2 = $29.98), which would then qualify for free shipping. I own two fans: one is for the bedroom and one is for the living room. I like sticking the fans in my windows at night to create better circulation. On one side, have a fan that points in and on the other side of your house have another that points out.

There are no reviews on Best Buy’s website so I picked one off the Home Depot (US) website. One reviewer on there said:

Easy to start using–just take out of box and plug in.It can be set on a table,desk or placed on floor. The best feature is how easy it is to tilt for several different directions of air flow. Very powerful for it’s size.

This fan is a great basic for your home. The Lasko fan features two quiet speeds. The fan is lightweight and has a carrying handle for moving it from room to room. You can use this fan on the floor or as a table fan. The tilting head allows you to control the direction of the airflow.

If you are looking for a standing fan, then purchase the Lasko 16″ Stand Fan (2521C) – Black on sale from $39.99 down to $29.99. I like oscillating fans, personally. If you like the idea of a table fan but want a smaller unit, then look at the Honeywell 8″ Tabletop Air Circulator Fan (HT-900C) on sale from $19.99 down to $14.99.

Danby Air Conditioner Was $129.99 | Now $99.99 @ Best Buy Canada

Posted by on June 5, 2015 at 7:22 PM

Danby Air Conditioner Was $129.99 | Now $99.99 @ Best Buy Canada

If the summer heat is crowding your brain function and melting all your marbles, then pick up a new air conditioner for summer. Best Buy Canada has discounted this Danby 5000 BTU Window Air Conditioner (DAC050MB1GB) from $129.99 down to $99.99 with free shipping.

Now, this unit (with the exact model number) is not available anywhere else in Canada. however, I did find a Danby 5,000 BTW air conditioner with just a slightly different model number (looks the same) for $144 at Walmart.

After searching for a bit, I figured that I would just compare this air conditioner’s price to other 5,000 BTU units. The cheapest 5,000 BTU unit on Walmart is Mainstays for $109.98. Home Depot Canada has a LG air conditioner (5,000 BTU) for $119. Canadian Tire has a Gree 5,000 BTU unit for $109.99 and Rona sells a Facto unit for $119. Anywhere I looked, I could not find a 5,000 BTU unit for under $100.

This air conditioner will cover approximately 150 sq. ft, so it is great for bedrooms, home offices, playrooms, and very small apartments. I know my bedroom is roasting in the summer as the balcony door (off the bedroom) receives the full evening sun. While it is nice to lie in the sunlight spring and fall, summer becomes an experiment of sleeping in an oven.

The Denby air conditioner comes with two cooling speeds and uses environmentally-friendly R410A refrigerant. Though air conditioners are known for their high energy consumption, this unit has a 9.7 EER Energy rating. Honestly, I think it is worth the energy expenditure and cost because my personal energy plummets if I am overheating.

This air conditioner is covered by a one-year warranty. I have actually been looking for one of these units since last summer when I nearly stopped getting out of bed due to the heat. I was considering buying used but air conditioners are not known for their long life span. I think it would be safer just to buy new – especially now that I can buy one for under $100 pre-tax. If you are in a rush, then reserve online and pick-up at your local store within a few hours.

3 Kitchen Appliances that Will Save You Time and Money

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 8:00 PM

3 Kitchen Appliances that Will Save You Time and Money

My kitchen is so small I’m not the type of person to have every kitchen appliance under the sun, although that would be nice, because the Aqua Sky Kitchen Aid mixer has always had my eye.  There are a few kitchen appliances that I am a huge fan of that I already have, and there are a few kitchen appliances that I am thinking for a future purchase of adding to my kitchen appliance collection.  Most of these aren’t very pricey and really give a good bang for your buck.

There are a few ways to evaluate whether a kitchen appliance is worth it.  I remember my family had an apple peeler (it cored the apple and peeled it in a spiral fashion, it was fun to watch actually) but it unfortunately just collected dust and was never taken out of its box except for a handful of times.  LifeHack has a great post explaining which kitchen appliances people on a budget should have.  Learnvest also has a great post entitled “Are These Kitchen Appliances Worth It?” detailing the number of times you need to use the appliance before it is “worth it” in terms of the price you paid.  Obviously the more times you need to use it to ‘break even’ the worse the purchase that kitchen appliance is to add to your kitchen arsenal.

Here are three kitchen appliances that, in my humble opinion, are worth the money and the kitchen counter space (or cupboard space) because they will save you money and time (time is priceless, isn’t it?):

Slow Cooker or Crock Pot

I am a huge huge fan of the slow cooker and honestly, that feeling you get when you finish the 6 to 10 hours of waiting for the food to cook, when you smell the intoxicating smell of the slow cooker meal, and when you open the lid is to peer in at what you threw into the pot without much effort… is priceless!  Slow cookers or Crock Pots (kind of like the tissue paper and Kleenex analogy) are very economically priced, you can get a decent one for about $50 and they last for a long time.  You can make all sorts of things with a slow cooker.  When choosing one, look for fancier options like one that automatically switches to ‘warm’ when it is finished cooking, or one that can extend the cook time to 16 hours or longer (for those who are interested in making the new health craze, bone broth, this is a great option).  The slow cooker is perfect for busy people who don’t have time to cook at the end of the day, or perfect for batch cooking and freezer cooking.  Personally I make something in my crockpot on the Sunday and have leftovers throughout the week.

Here are a few great easy and cheap slow cooker recipes to get you started.  Also, Bargainmoose often posts some great deals for slow cookers through Amazon.ca, Walmart, or Lowes.  Check out this recent Bargainmoose deal from Walmart for $33!

Dehydrator

I personally haven’t purchased this yet but have been doing some research.  The costs are anywhere from $75 to $200 and it definitely takes up a large portion of your cupboard space (I personally would not want something like that sitting on my counter).  Here is an example from Canadian Tire and one from Amazon.ca.  If you are someone who camps often, this is definitely an investment worth making.  Dehydrating your food instead of buying the $9 per two servings of dehydrated food at your local camping/ outdoor equipment store will save you money.  Also, beef jerky is expensive so why not make your own?  In addition, my dog likes sweet potato chews (he has lots of allergies) and these chews cost $20 for a about 18 slices.  A dehydrator would shave a lot of money off that regular expense.

A French Press or a Nespresso

For all you coffee drinkers, a home brewed coffee costs much less than $1 a cup compared to a $3.95 + tax latte.  Over the course of a year, that daily latte right before work adds up to $1000.  Personally I would rather go on an all inclusive trip to Mexico or Cuba for that annual cost, but to each their own!  Here’s a post from TheKitchn on how to make a latte without an espresso machine.  A Nespresso machine is pricey, but there is a $100 rebate to offset some of the cost currently.  A Bodum French Press costs anywhere from $25 to $50.

Bargainmoosers, do you have a kitchen appliance that you are a fan of?   Do you recommend buying a dehydrator?

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 4-Cup Chopper Only $34 & Free Shipping after $20 Coupon

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 4 Cup Chopper Only $34 & Free Shipping after $20 Coupon

The Cuisinart CH-4BKC 4-Cup Chopper is on sale from $64.99 down to $53.99. Use one of the $20 off $50 Facebook coupons to bring the four-cup chopper down to $33.99 with free shipping.

Shop.ca is one of the best places to get deals right now, aside from Chapters (because of the Visa Checkout deal). With the $20 off $50 coupons I have mentioned before (there are four), you can receive $20 off orders of $50. That brings many items, which are around $50, substantially down in price to a level they cannot be beat. I just used one of these coupons to purchase some vitamins yesterday.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 4 Cup Chopper Only $34 & Free Shipping after $20 Coupon

All good deals require price comparing. I found the same Cuisinart CH4BKC 4-Cup Chopper for the following prices at other retailers:

  • $54.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $69.99 @ Sears Canada

Given the above prices, you are buying your mini chopper for $16 less than the nearest competitor is. When the machine itself costs just over double $16, it is a huge savings over the nearest competitor. I also wanted to mention that it is cheap than the three-cup processor I mentioned before ($37.99).

As there are no reviews on Shop.ca for the Cuisinart mini chopper, I pulled one off of Best Buy Canada:

It is perfect for small jobs, such as making hummous or salsa. The motor is powerful enough to grind or chop very quickly. the parts are quite easy to clean. The only drawback I found would be that the holes on the lid for pouring liquids (oil or water) are too tiny.

One of these is a god-sent in most kitchens. It can be tedious to chop all your veggies for making salads or casseroles. In addition, it is very hard to get a nice smooth hummus or dip without the use of a processor of sorts. This little mini chopper and grinder will really help with kitchen prep and improve the texture of what you would usually make by hand. I also like the compact size: this mini chopper will not dominate your kitchen counters. It is small enough to put away when you are done.

A friend of mine and I were arguing recently over who was better: KitchenAid or Cuisinart. We each have our loyalties, but he was staunchly in the Cuisinart camp and he went to cooking school.

As with all orders at Shop.ca, this will ship for free.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor Was $55 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 30, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor Was $55 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

If you are in the market for a mini food processor, then we have a great deal for you. The Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor is on sale from $54.99 down to $38.99, in the citrus lime colourway. Only this colour is on sale. All orders at Shop.ca come with free shipping.

I price compared this processor with other retailers. The Source Canada currently has a couple colours on sale for $39.99, but they are already out of stock (and the deal just started today). That was quick. Staples has the mini prep priced at $49.99 (also out of stock), and Amazon sells the white one for $46.40. Shop.ca sells all the other colours, excluding this green, for $54.99 right now. The Bay Canada does not sell this model, but they had a 4-cup model on sale for $48.74.

This little food processor is perfect for people who rarely use food processor or who live on their own / as a couple where food volume is less. I adore this little processor as its small size makes it apartment friendly. I do not know about you, but I have way too many appliances to actually fit on the counters of my small galley kitchen.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor Was $55 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

This food processor has many redeeming features. The food processor will chop or grind at the touch of the button. There are only two buttons – so use is very intuitive. There is also an auto-reversing SmartPower blade feature. The bowl can hold up to three cups of ingredients and all the parts are dishwasher-safe. Just take everything apart, run it through the dishwasher, and reassemble.

This is a funky little food processor. Usually, we use the food processor to shred potatoes and onions for casseroles, occasionally shred cheese, and refine breadcrumbs from large chunks into finer powder. The last use is probably the most frequent as I bake (at a low temperature) any old bread to dry it out. Once dried, the food processor is handy for turning the dried bread into crumbs. This is one of the ways that I try to reduce waste in my household.

Now, Shop.ca still has some active $20 off $50 coupon codes. Add $11.01 more to your cart and use one of these Facebook vouchers to save $20. That makes the mini food processor even cheaper!

The Source: Total Chef Juicin’ Juicer Was $100 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 23, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The Source: Total Chef Juicin Juicer Was $100 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

The Source Canada has an excellent sale on the Total Chef Juicin’ Juicer. Originally $99.99, the juicer is on sale for $69.99 with free shipping.

I price compared this unit with other online retailers. The Total Chef Juicin’ Juicer retails for the following prices:

  • $84 @ Walmart Canada
  • $99.95 @ Shop.ca
  • $99.95 @ Home Depot Canada
  • $99.98 @ Best Buy Canada

This is a basic juicer – perfect for morning freshly squeezed orange juice. Many juicers are quite expensive, but if you want to pass on store bought juice for a healthier alternative, then pick up this budget friendly juicer from Total Chef. This juicer can also juice veggies. The Top Chef Juicin’ Juicer has a dual speed selector and auto-shut off. The extra-large pulp bin will let you get through a couple glasses of juice before emptying. A wide chut opening lets you spend less time cutting fruit.

The juicer is a combination of plastic and stainless steel. Most importantly, the juicing blade is made of stainless steel so it will keep a sharp edge and last for years to come. I like the addition of suction cups to the bottom of the juicer to keep it in place on your counter. That sounds very handy.

While there are no reviews on The Source, I did find some on other websites. Reviews for this juicer are a mixed kettle of fish. Some people found it not worth the money ($100) and found the machine a bit messy. However, one reviewer at Home Depot reminded readers that:

It is not the best juicer out there, but it is in a good 100.00 juicer. It does leave wet pulp not getting all the juice out but in all fairness I have not read the manual yet. Make sure that it is put together snugly or you will have a mess. I have used better juicers but this one fits what I need for now and the price is right. clean up is not that bad if you do it right after you use it.

If this is a good juicer for $100, then I think it is an even better juicer at only $70. For anyone needing a juicer on a budget, this one certainly fits the bill. As the juicer costs over $29, it qualifies for free shipping to your home.
