Amazon Canada: 80% Off Intuit Quickbooks Online EasyStart – Now $9.99

Posted by on July 7, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 80% Off Intuit Quickbooks Online EasyStart   Now $9.99

Amazon Canada is offering 80% off the original price of $89.99 for the Intuit Quickbooks Online EasyStart Accounting Software for small businesses. This twelve-month prepaid software package is on sale for just $9.99.

The CD will be shipped out to you; however, this is a web-based accounting program. Thus, an internet connection is required and they recommend high speed. The software is both Mac and PC compatible. The Intuit software comes with one user license plus access for two accountants. You can create and send professional invoices as well as track income, expenses, and profit. You can also monitor your real-time cash flow. The software gives you a 12-month subscription, which works out to less than a dollar a month for accounting software.

Most all the reviewers on Amazon are quite pleased with their purchase. This reviewer from June said:

Invoicing and keeping track of my invoices has never been easier! Quickbooks Online has allowed me to focus on my clients instead of bookkeeping. That being said, I always know where my finances are at with very little effort!

Another reviewer from back in January said they also loved the software with the only downside being it is web based.

This software package is on sale at Staples right now for $29, but Amazon.ca still beats that price by a mile.

I worked as a bookkeeper for a couple months and then swore never to do that again. I don’t think it was the actual accounting that bothered me, rather the lack of cooperation from my boss. I need receipts. I cannot balance books without receipts. My mother has done the books for my parents’ small business since I can almost remember, and around tax time you avoided disturbing the peace – or rather the thick air of stress that hung over the house. My mother always took the final books to an accountant. That is why I never learned to do my own taxes as when I became old enough to gain employment; my taxes also went to the accountant. Even if you take your taxes to an accountant, I highly recommend teaching your children how to do their own taxes.

This sweet little deal probably will not last for long. Amazon Canada offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more so check your wish list to see if anything else you want is also on sale.

Steam Powered: 75% Off RPG Maker VX Ace – Now $17.50

Posted by on May 30, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off RPG Maker VX Ace   Now $17.50

If you love RPGs and have always wanted to build your own game (no programming required) then this deal is for you. Pick up RPG Maker VX Ace for an incredible 75% off this weekend only at Steam Powered. Originally, $69.99 USD, it is now on sale for just $17.50 USD.

The only place you can really price compare with is the manufacturer, and they sell their own product for $69.99. Therefore, Steam is really giving you an amazing deal. Not only that, this weekend is a ‘free play weekend’ where you can try out the product for free before purchasing to see if it is the right thing for you. Just click here to start your free play.

Now, not only do you get 75% off the game, you also get 75% off all downloadable content (excluding RPG Maker: Royal Tiles Resource Pack which was just released) this weekend. And may I say, there are a LOT of DLCs for this game. They have everything from music, to resources, to different types of tiles. So if you have just been itching to get this game, or maybe you already own it and want some funky new stuff to play with, then check out the DLCs you can get for 75% off. You are saving bucket-loads of money on this stuff.

As a gamer, this stuff appeals to me. Not just for the usual “I love playing games reason” but rather because I was playing text-based online RPGs since I was 16 and while I was still a teenager I owned my own text-based RPG which I managed and hired coders for. It was a rush and a huge learning curve. I have always been into games, not just as a gamer but also as a manager. I like to give people a good game that they can really get into and enjoy. Thus, this software is totally calling my name.

Genbook Canada: 30 Day Free Trial

Posted by on April 29, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Genbook Canada: 30 Day Free Trial

Let me introduce you to Genbook Online Scheduling Software. Then, you can introduce yourself with a free 30-day trial.

Genbook looks like quite interesting software. If you have a business where you need to schedule appointments for clients, Genbook’s software can do it for you with online appointment scheduling. It looks so easy and incredibly beneficial. It doesn’t just schedule appointments for you, but you can use the reserve with credit card feature to protect against no-shows. You get instant confirmation and calendar sync so you always know where your day and week are going.

Genbook can also help you market your business as you can offer promotions for booking online. You can increase your online visibility, get verified customer reviews and generate customer analytics to see how you are doing.

I can imagine this software would be great for small businesses, in particular my hairdresser and massage therapist. Both run home-based businesses and sometimes it is hard to get a hold of them as they are so busy. We go back and forth with availabilities and it can take days to actually get the right appointment set up. With software such as this, I could go online and see what appointments are available and fit my schedule and book one for myself.

There are different pricing schemes depending on your needs from as low as $20 a month up to $70 a month and you’ll get the first 30 days free to see if you like it.

TurboTax: 15% Off Desktop and Online Tax Software

Posted by on March 5, 2014 at 11:30 PM

TurboTax: 15% Off Desktop and Online Tax Software

Tax season is coming *doom doom doom* and you need to be prepared. The alternative is to run around in circles freaking out: either option has worked for me in the past. However, currently Intuit TurboTax is offering 15% off desktop and online tax software so you can file your taxes on time this year.

Are you a single person hold up in your house with a stack of papers that have ‘T’s and numbers following those letters? You should be good with the Standard Online version which will set you back only $15.29, originally $17.99.

If you have the same basic needs but you have a family: say a husband/wife and a few teenagers running around, then you will need to pick up the Basic CD/Download that was $19.99 and is now $16.99. It allows you do file up to eight returns and is perfect for families with more than one income.

However, if you own your own business or play with the stock market there are different tax software kits for those. Choose the one that best suits your needs by reading the product descriptions. I am totally not looking forward to tax season this year. All my forms from the bank have not even come in yet. I hate that I always have to do taxes right before finals: students shouldn’t have to do their taxes till the summer!

All products that download do not require shipping (of course). If you do choose to get the software shipped to you, shipping starts at $4.

Vipre AntiVirus: 2 Years Of Protection For The Price Of 1

Posted by on January 24, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Vipre AntiVirus: 2 Years Of Protection For The Price Of 1

Hire a Vipre to protect your computer for two years, but only pay it for one with Vipre Anti Virus!

Okay, you can’t actually hire a vipre to protect your computer. Actually, you can, but that would be stupid. What’s a vipre going to do with your money? Instead, you can pick up Vipre Anti Virus for two years for the price of one. The way anti virus programs work is that the program will work forever, but you need to buy access to the signatures. Signatures are basically the files that tell your AV program what is a virus and what isn’t. They are also called definitions.

I think everyone needs at least an anti-virus program. You might not need the full blown Internet Security bundles with all the bells and whistles (although some do) to protect your social media, laptop, tablet, phone, etc, but you really should have an AV solution of some sort. It really doesn’t matter how proficient you are at computers, there is always a chance you’ll get hit with an infection.

Protection for one PC for two years is normally $69.99, but you will save $20 and get two years for the price of one, only $49.99. If you have more machines, you can get a license for up to ten computers for only $69.99. That’s $30 off the regular $99.99 price tag for two years.

This is a digital download, so there is no shipping.

Best Buy Canada: Sale on Kaspersky Computer Security Products

Posted by on January 1, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Sale on Kaspersky Computer Security Products

Kaspersky is my friend Ben’s pick of the anti-virus software available. Best Buy Canada is offering several Kaspersky products on sale to suit your computer security needs.

There are three deals to take advantage of:

These three products are different. The first one is your basic internet security and malware protection package. It is really useful if you spend time browsing the web or even just use social networking sites like Facebook that have a lot of links that could be suspicious. The anti-virus is what every computer should have to protect and clean itself up – but it is just that. The Total Security is pretty much piece of mind in a box and is good for up to three different computers.

Get free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

The first deal expires on the 2nd, but the other two deals are sticking around until the 9th of January, 2014.

Staples Canada: Norton Internet Security 2014 Only $19.99 (Expired)

Staples Canada is offering Norton Internet Security 2014, three users, for a fraction of its retail price. Originally $79.99 it is now on sale for $19.99.

I did a quick price comparison with a couple other retailers. Best Buy has the same software for its full retail price of $79.99. Amazon.ca has the same software on sale for $63.99. I found a single user version at Amazon for $26.99 which is still more expensive than this three user version from Staples.

The software offers five levels of protection proving an anti-virus and an internet security system to keep you safe while browsing. The system includes:

  • Norton Protection
  • Network Defense Layer Protection
  • SONAR Behavioral Protection
  • Live 24×7 Threat Monitoring
  • Threat-removal Layer

If you are a fan of Norton Security, this is a great deal on their software for the New Year.

Staples offers free shipping on orders of $45 or more.

Dell Canada: McAfee Total Protection $9.99

Dell Canada: McAfee Total Protection $9.99

Get McAfee Total Protection 2014 for three PCs for only $9.99 (originally $79.99) at Dell Canada.

Seriously this deal is mega hot! The software comes with:

  • real-time antivirus
  • anti-malware
  • spam filters
  • advanced parental controls
  • firewall
  • protection against identity theft
  • protection against risks in social media
  • and protection against hacking of your PC

This is for a downloadable version that you will receive within four to eight hours of ordering it.

So Dell Canada’s starting price on this is a wee bit out to lunch, but this is still a good deal. Even on massive Boxing Day sales I have only found this at at least double Dell’s price, without free shipping. For example: Future Shop has it on sale for $19.99 but as that is just under the $20 minimum you wouldn’t get the free shipping (and you can’t just download it). I figure that $10 for a full throttle anti-virus is a pretty sweet deal and I plan to install this tomorrow.

I totally just bought this deal and you should too! Get McAfee Internet Security 2014 for 3 pcs for only $4.99 (originally $69.99) as a sweet Boxing Day deal.

Seriously this deal is hot! The software comes with:

  • real-time antivirus
  • anti-malware
  • spam filters
  • advanced parental controls
  • firewall

While it may be listed as temporarily out of stock you CAN still order it… I just did!

Here is a little price comparison to rock your socks. Best Buy and Future Shop Canada have this on sale for $24.99. The Source has the software for the full $69.99 price and it is $58.39 at Amazon Canada, Dell’s deal is by far the best and their free shipping policy on any order makes this deal even better!

Crazy Egg: Free 30 Day Trial – Visualize Where People Go On Your Website

Crazy Egg: Free 30 Day Trial   Visualize Where People Go On Your Website

Do you run a website? Ever wonder what parts of it people like, what they click and what they read? CrazyEgg tells you and for 30 days, they tell you for free.

If you want to know exactly what CrazyEgg does, check out the video on their home page, which explains it all. Basically, it is a way to see which parts of your website people like and which parts they don’t. Things like Google Analytics and the awesome SumAll are great resources, but they don’t do it all. CrazyEgg is the missing piece.

After the 30 day free trial, the service is only $9/month for smaller sites and up to $99/month for bigger sites. If you’re running a mega site like Costco, Disney, eBay or Amazon (all of whom are CrazyEgg users) you can get a custom price plan. It seems quite easy to set up, too. If you’ve added Google Analytics to your site, you’re probably going to be able to do this. If you don’t happen to dig it and your conversions don’t go up, you get your money back.

Intego: Free Upgrade To Washing Mashine 2014 For Mac Premium Bundle 2013 Users

Intego: Free Upgrade To Washing Mashine 2014 For Mac Premium Bundle 2013 Users

In what is probably one of the most specific niche articles I’ve ever written here, you can get Intego Washing Machine 2014 for Mac for free!

How do you do this? Well, you can either go back in time and buy Intego Mac Premium Bundle. You could also buy it right now, but I suspect the 2014 version will be coming out at some point in the near future, so that might not be the best idea either. Your best bet is to already own the software.

If you already own it, you know about Washing Machine and probably already love it. This offer lets you upgrade the Mac Washing Machine portion of your Premium Bundle for free! No strings attached, nothing fancy.

If you don’t already have Intego’s Mac Premium Bundle 2013, you may still want WashingMachine, so I’ll let Intego tell you what it’s all about.

Washing Machine keeps you surfing fast and securely. As you surf the web, cookies and other types of files form a digital trail that can provide a road map of your surfing habits. Washing Machine protects your privacy by deleting this personal information and saves space on your Mac by emptying cache files.

Washing Machine shows you a list of items that may compromise your privacy. When you select one, the applications that have generated that kind of tracking information are listed. Select the type of information you want to clean up, cookies for example. Then select which applications you would like to clean up that information for and press the “Clean” button. You are a button click away from once again surfing in private!

All that for $29.99! Not too shabby.
