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: 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. 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.

Dell Canada: Boxing Day McAfee Internet Security $5 (Save $65)

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

Posted by on November 10, 2013 at 4:00 PM

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

Posted by on November 1, 2013 at 9:30 PM

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.

Quoterollers: Free 14 Day Trial – No Credit Card Required

Posted by on November 1, 2013 at 7:30 PM

Quoterollers: Free 14 Day Trial   No Credit Card Required

Roll yo’ quotes for free at!

There are some really cool things being done with Software as a Service (SAAS) lately, and QuoteRoller is another great example. First, what is SAAS? SAAS basically means you are running a program in the Cloud. Google Docs is SAAS. Normally you’d run a word processor on your computer (like Microsoft Word). Now, you can run it on Google and just access them from your browser. SalesForce is the monster in the SAAS world, so if you’re familiar with their concept, you know about SAAS.

Before we get into QuoteRoller, the deal here is that you get 14 days of free access, no credit card needed. After that, it is $9.99/user/month up to $29.99/user/month, depending on what level you buy and if you are getting it monthly or yearly.

QuoteRoller lets you make quotes and proposals online and send them to your clients. Instead of doing up a quote in a spreadsheet or word processor, you just enter the pertinent data and QuoteRoller sticks it in a template (which you can customize) and then allows you to email it to your customers. They even have in-quote analytics which allow you to see what parts of your quote were focused on the most by your clients. That way, you can focus more on specific parts as you see fit. It even integrates with other services like FreshBooks. I think a FreshBooks and QuoteRoller combo would be amazing for any business.

October 30 $20 off Nero 2014 Platinum

Posted by on October 30, 2013 at 1:00 PM $20 off Nero 2014 Platinum

Get Nero 2014 Platinum for $20 less!

Nero used to be one of the most pirated pieces of software around. As bad as that sounds, it means that it is quality software. Companies actually often gauge their success partially on how pirated their software, movie, TV show or whatever else is pirated. If no one is willing to steal your stuff, well, it’s probably not worth the trouble.

The full platinum suite is normally $129.99 but you get $20 so it’s only $109.99. Prices are in USD.

It’s been a while since I’ve lurked around the pirated software world  so I don’t know if Nero shows up as much but their new software certainly seems like a quality product to me. Nero used to be popular because burning CDs (especially bootable ISOs) was a pain. Nero made it easy.  But burning is a lot easier now so, even though they still have some great burning software in there, they’ve made it way more than a burning program. You can use it to convert media formats (great for mobile devices, especially iOS gear) and view and manage your photos, music and video. You can even use it to edit HD and 4K video. And of course they still have a great burning, copying and ripping engine.

There is no shipping as this is a digital download.

Dell Canada: McAfee AntiVirus Plus 1 PC 2014 Now $6 (Was $40)

Posted by on October 28, 2013 at 8:30 PM

Dell Canada: McAfee AntiVirus Plus 1 PC 2014 Now $6 (Was $40)

Is your anti-virus ready for the new year? If not be sure to pick up the McAfee AntiVirus Plus 1 PC 2014 for only $5.99, which is a huge discount from $39.99. The AntiVirus software requires only a download so there is no shipping.

Dell is not deep linking so just search “McAfee AntiVirus Plus 1 PC 2014″ and click on the download version.

I have McAfee AntiVirus and although it is hardly the cat’s meow, it generally does the job. Generally I say because sometimes I get these strange reports that say my anti-virus and firewall have been turned off when I, most certainly, have not turned them off. However, that has only happened a couple times. Most of the time it does its scan when it should and keeps my computer free of viruses. For only $5.99 this is pretty much a steal at that price. I constantly get emails from McAfee asking me to renew my AntiVirus and the price they are offering most certainly is not $5.99 or I would have renewed by now.

LapLlink has basically figured out a way to do one thing very, very well and has expanded on that same general idea. The basic idea of their software is syncing. Their main product is their PC Mover software, which helps you migrate all your files, settings and apps to another computer. There are also versions to help you upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 without losing all of your settings and files. There are programs to sync between PCs, Macs, Android devices and iOS devices. They even have some disk management utilities for imaging, performance and security.

They also sell some cables, which I would highly recommend against getting because you can pick them up way cheaper at, well, almost anywhere.

Their software is all delivered via digital download, so there are no shipping charges.

Toon Boom Animation Canada: Upgrade Studio 8 Bundle – $99 (Save $80)

Posted by on October 13, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Toon Boom Animation Canada: Upgrade Studio 8 Bundle   $99 (Save $80)

Toon Boom Animation has a couple of promotions on for all our artistic Moosers out there. First, get the Toon Boom Studio 8 Upgrade bundle which includes the upgrade and the Infinite Skills – Learning Toon Boom program for only $99. You save $80. If you have already bought the upgrade, you can get just the Infinite Skills – Learning Toon Boom Studio 8 for $50, which is 50% off of its regular price.

I bet you are wondering what a chick like me knows about an animation program like this. I don’t know a whole not about the program itself, but I have heard plenty about it through word of mouth. One of my friends is an animator, and I’m not just talking about your run of the mill computer animator, either. This guy did classic animation for companies like Warner Bros. Did I just catch your attention? Thought I did. He has also animated for cartoons I used to watch, like Arthur. He has seriously wicked drawing talent and I adore him (he drew the above picture for me), and he uses Toon Boom now. He has been working on a lot of animated shorts lately and has really enjoyed working with Toon Boom. I think that is a pretty good kudos to it.

If you have never used Toon Boom but are into animation, why don’t you check it out? They offer free trials right here. They have animation software, story-boarding software, and a lot more. They are a Canadian company out of Montreal and this is the first time we have mentioned them on the Bargainmoose. Check them out!

Most their software is download-able – no shipping costs involved.
