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.

DisplayFusion: Manage Multiple Monitors and Save 25% to Celebrate Version 5.1! (Expired)

Posted by on September 5, 2013 at 1:00 PM

DisplayFusion: Manage Multiple Monitors and Save 25% to Celebrate Version 5.1! (Expired)

The busiest lady I know uses DisplayFusion to make her life easier and you should too. You should also save 25% because we love you very, very much.

DisplayFusion starts at $25 for a lifetime license for one computer. You get it for only $18.75. The 25% discount saves you $6.25. That’s for the Standard licence. The Personal Home (more than one computer at your home), Site (for an office) and Enterprise (for a company) licences are $26.25, $524.25 and $1949.25, respectively, after the 25% discount.

The busiest lady I know is BargainMoose’s dear dictator for live, Anna Waters. She uses this and loves it. You can see how much she likes it by reading her comments about it in a previous DisplayFusion post. Now that you’ve read that, you know everything there is to know about DisplayFusion so go buy it. Good night!

No, that’s not right! Besides all the awesome features they had in the last version, they’ve added more. Of course there were minor updates and bug fixes, but the real big new feature is the screen splitting feature. I’d explain it but the people who make it can do a better job.

The biggest new feature is the addition of Monitor Splitting. This is an incredible new feature that allows people using nVidia Surround or AMD EyeFinity to virtually split their spanned desktop into virtual monitors. Separate taskbars, wallpaper, window maximizing and more. No need to disable EyeFinity or Surround when you’re done gaming.

This is especially helpful if you’re a creative type or very busy with a lot of stuff happening on your computer all the time. You can maximize email in one part of your screen, Twitter on another and browse on another. This would actually turn a small TV into a suitable monitor.

Also, you can save money on this if you already have another program by Binary Fortress, the creators of Display Fusion. I’d suggest checking out ClipBoard Fusion. It’s especially helpful if you use, as most of us do, multiple devices/computers.

CyberLink Software Canada Coupon Code: Exclusive 10% Off Everything

Get 10% off everything from CyberLink with this exclusive Bargainmoose coupon code!

Click here to shop @ CyberLink.com now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE10
  • Discount: Save 10%
  • Expiry: 25th August 2013

CyberLink software fills that spot between people whose main media tools came with Windows, and the people who really need heavy duty editing software. Products like PowerDirector, PhotoDirector and MediaSuite let you do more than the you could with the stuff that comes with your computer, but are way, way cheaper than the offerings from Adobe. Right now they are having a Back-to-School sale and the coupon works in conjunction with it. Here are a few prices with the sale and the coupon applied.

Some of these numbers might be a bit off because they round their discounts oddly. It’d only be off by a few pennies, though. Those programs seem to be their most popular, but they have others including a bunch of mobile apps and even some Adobe plug-ins if you’re using that level of product already.

No shipping fees as these are all digital downloads.

ZoneAlarm Canada: Save 50%+ Off Various Security Programs & Free PC Tune-Up Bundle

Posted by on August 15, 2013 at 10:30 PM

ZoneAlarm Canada: Save 50%+ Off Various Security Programs & Free PC Tune Up Bundle

Get the knowledge and experience of the ZoneAlarm guys at a great discount.

I say ZoneAlarm has been around forever, but according to the book of knowledge, Wikipedia, it’s been about 13 years. I thought it was longer than that, but I guess not. Regardless, 13 years in technology is like 50 years in the real world. It’s kind of surreal, actually, to look back on how much stuff has happened since 2000.

One thing that has happened is that it’s gotten more dangerous on the internet. Now, I’m not an alarmist, so I don’t want to freak you out about being on the internet. The internet is awesome. The problem is that there are a lot of people who don’t understand it. Luckily for those people, companies like ZoneAlarm exist to help protect you. ZoneAlarm is best known as a firewall maker, but they have a lot more to offer.

  • ZoneAlarm PRO Antivirus + Firewall plus PC Tune-up - Was $69.95 – Save $50 – Now $19.95
  • ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite plus PC Tune-up - Was $79.95 – Save $45 – Now $34.95
  • ZoneAlarm Extreme Security plus PC Tune-up – Was $89.95 – Save $50 – Now $39.95

The prices above are not including the PC Tune-up, which you get for free. It retails for $19.95, so you can add another $19.95 on to the savings above!

This is for a digital download of the software, so there is no shipping.

DisplayFusion: 15% Off Multi-Monitor Management Utility With Exclusive Coupon Code (Expired)

Posted by on July 25, 2013 at 7:00 PM

DisplayFusion: 15% Off Multi Monitor Management Utility With Exclusive Coupon Code (Expired)

If you have multiple monitors you’re going to want to use this coupon to get 15% off Display Fusion!

 Click here to maximize multiple monitors @ DisplayFusion.com now

  • Coupon Code: dfbargainmoose (expired)
  • Discount: 15% Off
  • Expiry: 16th August 2013

There is way too much going on with Display Fusion for me to go over all the options. There are the standard things you’d expect from a multi-monitor management program but there is so much more. Of course you can span title bars and menu bars. There are a few different ways to keep your windows in order. You can do some cool stuff with your desktop background. That’s all fairly standard. But you can also have Display Fusion load random images from places like 500px or DeviantART. You can modify those images in-program by adding filters like black and white or sepia. There are even profiles to save your different configurations.

It’s so good that our boss here are Bargainmoose, after she used it (and loved it) for a little bit, has graciously let me steal her words to put on this here article.

I downloaded Display Fusion last week on the recommendation of my partner, and I bought the license for use on multiple home computers. I was a bit wary of using this software, as I am quite fussy with what happens on my PC. I’m a bit scared of change! Anyway, I read the features and thought I would give it a try. It wasn’t that expensive considering this is a lifetime license for Display Fusion,  and I knew I could just uninstall it if I wasn’t happy.

I’ve mentioned on here a few times that I work with multiple monitors, a 27″ and a 24″ Dell, so using Display Fusion is actually really good. The first thing I found great was the extended taskbar which flowed over on to my second monitor – there wasn’t one there before. It gives a bit of a separation in that the windows that are open on the second monitor will be on the second taskbar – ideal for my working methods. I also really like the little button which is at the top of each window – hit it and the whole window just jumps over to the other screen.

There are many more features which I haven’t used yet, such as the ability to have separate screensavers on each monitor, or various types of desktop images… but I’m really happy with Display Fusion so far!

If you really want to know all the features that this great program has to offer, check out their Comparison Page and their Features Page. You’ll notice on the comparison that they have a bunch of different licenses from personal use to professional. They even have a steam version or, of course, the FREE version if you so choose. The pro really has a bunch more features for as low as $25 minus the coupon code, so it’s a steal.

Norton Canada: Up to $40 Off Norton Anti-Virus

Posted by on July 2, 2013 at 7:30 PM

Norton Canada: Up to $40 Off Norton Anti Virus

Get up to $40 off select Norton Anti-Virus software packages online at Norton Canada.

There are two software packages on sale:

Norton Internet Security includes both antivirus protection and online identity protection. Originally $79.99 (though it says $89.99 another place) it is on sale for $49.99 if you buy the 1 year/ 3 PCs pack. The sale price is only valid for the 1yr/PC packs. It is compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7, XP, and Vista.

Norton 360 is your complete protection package. Originally $89.99 it is on sale for $49.99. It offers everything you could want in an antivirus and in internet protection. It is also compatible with Vista through Windows 8 platforms.

The one thing I hate about Norton (one of the many things actually) is that they sign you up for an auto-renew service: “Your subscription purchase today includes enrollment in the Norton Automatic Renewal Service”. This you should be aware of so you can go in to your account or get ahold of customer service to get it cancelled should you not want them auto-billing you every year.

Thanks to billjacobus1 for the pic!

VIPREAntivirus.com: $30 Off VIPRE Security Anywhere – PC & Mobile Security On Up To 10 Devices

Posted by on June 19, 2013 at 2:30 PM

VIPREAntivirus.com: $30 Off VIPRE Security Anywhere   PC & Mobile Security On Up To 10 Devices

Protect all your devices, and save $30 while you’re at it.

VIPRE is offering their Security Anywhere package for $49.99! That’s a $30 discount off of the normal $79.99 price tag. And of course, this is a PC and Android download, so no shipping costs. Isn’t the Internet awesome?

At first I thought that this “protection for up to ten devices thing” was just them saying “Look at us! We offer TEN licenses! We’re awesome!”. Then I realized that this is actually a normal use case. A mom, dad and two kids could easily have five computers and five Android devices. Me, my wife and my three year old son actively use two computers and four Android devices. Once my boy is a bit older, he’s gonna have a computer too. I suspect a lot people out there could really use this many licenses.

When I click through to this deal, it is showing up at $47.35. I’m not sure why. I thought, at first, maybe it was a weird exchange rate thing, but it’s a German company and the Euro is valued way above the Canadian dollar. I don’t know why, but I’m not complaining!

Technically this is a father’s day promotion, so don’t be put off by all the dad-centric promotion around this deal. Also, click the “see what’s really going on” button at the top of the VIPRE deal page. Very weird.

Amazon Canada: Intuit QuickBooks Over 35% Off ($50 to $150)

Get your books in order with Intuit’s Quickbooks from Amazon. Get the EasyStart version for only $49.99, was $79.99 (and price compared higher at other retailers) or get the Pro version for only $149.99, was $229.99 (and also price compared much higher).

Tax time is pretty much over for most of us and I’m sure some of us had a horrible time with it. Why not keep organized for next year with the ever-handy Quickbooks software?

The reviews are good on both of these 2013 versions. Fast and easy, which is the best way to do the books, QuickBooks will help you save time, money and keep you organized. Could QuickBooks come over and do my filing please?

The Pro version has over 100 reports built right in to the software, such as profit and loss, balance sheet and tax. You can easily see what you’ve ordered, what is in or out and track your orders. This is a great tool for small business accounting.

The Easy start version is easy to use, lets you see the money going in and out and maps all of your expenses right onto your tax return. You can produce professional invoices and even send them out using the software. With 20 built-in reports, your taxes will be effortless next year.

Shipping is free on both products.

VIPRE Antivirus: Buy VIPRE Internet Security, Get Carbonite Home For FREE – $59 Value!

Posted by on April 22, 2013 at 8:00 PM

VIPRE Antivirus: Buy VIPRE Internet Security, Get Carbonite Home For FREE   $59 Value!

VIPRE and Carbonite are teaming up to bring you this awesome deal. When you buy VIPRE’s Internet security software, you get a free copy of the awesome Carbonite Home backup service.

If you’re gonna be online, you need to be protected. A lot of people think an Antivirus program is all you need. Some people think Antispyware will do it. And most people don’t even back up or if they do, they don’t do it properly. With this package, you get all your bases covered. The VIRPE Internet Security package includes your firewall, email protection, antivirus, antimalware and a bunch of other great features.

Carbonite is awesome too. You install a little program on your computer and it slowly does a backup of everything on your hard drive and puts it on their server. I know a lot of us in Canada have bandwidth caps, so Carbonite lets you set usage limits so that you don’t go over the cap. It also knows to do the backups when you aren’t using the computer. If it sees a bunch of traffic on the network, it’ll stop backing up. Once everything is backed up, it keeps it up to date. You can even access your Carbonite backups from a smartphone, so it turns into mobile cloud storage, too!

Both programs come with one year of their respective services. There are no shipping costs as these are digital downloads.

STOPzilla Promo Code: Extra $5 Off 2013 Anti Virus/Anti Malware Software

Protect your computer with a giant lizard monster! Or with STOPzilla! Either way you’ll be protected but with STOPzilla, you’ll save $5 with this coupon code!

Click here to buy your AntiVirus/AntiMalware @ STOPzilla.com

  • Coupon Code: AVM5AF4
  • Discount: Extra $5 Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware
  • Expiry: Unknown

You need security if you’re gonna be online. That’s just the way it is. There are tons of viruses out there and a good AntiVirus/AntiMalware program will protect you from potentially harmful programs. STOPZilla has some pretty positive reviews. The only negative I’ve read is that the free trial isn’t fully featured and requires you to purchase the full version if you want to use it to its maximum potential. Doesn’t seem like a problem to me but some people online were complaining about it so I thought I’d mention it. Imagine that, people complaining about stupid stuff on the internet.

Anywho, the program is normally $49.95 but it’s on sale for $39.95. With the coupon code above, you save another $5 so you end up paying just $34.95. That’s $15 off! Not too shabby. This gets you protection for one computer for one year. As an alternative, you can protect three computers for one year ($64.95) or one computer for five years ($94.95).
