Sony Canada: $90 Off Xperia M Dual – Now $180

Posted by on June 13, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Sony Canada: $90 Off Xperia M Dual   Now $180

Sony Canada has put their Xperia M dual android-based smartphone on sale from $269.99 down to $179.99.

Sony is one of my favourite brands for electronics. I own a Sony TV, two cameras, and a PS3 that all continue to perform well and have not let me down yet. While I have never owned a Sony phone, I have considered buying one because the price is far more reasonable than my iPhone and my iPhone has spent 18 months seeing how many ways it can disappoint me (under-performing battery, on button refuses to work half the time, phone freezes, etc!).

The Xperia M Dual looks like a very good phone. It has all your basic functionality of a smartphone and comes pre-loaded with your favourite apps like Facebook and Google talk. The phone itself has an internal storage of 4GB and that is expandable with a microSD card, up to 32GB.

I wanted to talk about some awesome features that only the Sony phones have. One of them is called Battery stamina mode. This mode prevents unnecessary battery drain by automatically turning off things you don’t need or are not using (while maintaining all necessary notifications). This occurs while your phone is in sleep mode – when your screen is off – so when you turn your screen back on everything is up and running like normal. This is a BRILLIANT feature I would love to try out. My Apple battery is so bad I now carry an Anker external battery wherever I go.

The other thing you can expect from Sony is an awesome camera. The built in 5MP camera comes with features such as:

  • auto focus face detection
  • Fast capture Flash/Photo flash
  • Geotagging
  • Image stabilizer
  • Quick Launch Self-timer
  • Smile shutter
  • Red-eye reduction
  • Sweep Panorama
  • Touch capture/Touch focus

Your camera is also capable of HD 720p video recording for crisp clear videos on your phone. This is the quality I have come to expect from Sony after owning a Sony DSLR for a couple years. If there is anything Sony knows, it is cameras.

They also know sound systems and you will be very happy with the quality of speakers on this unit. The phone comes unlocked and is dual-sim compatible. I am a firm believer in unlocked phones so you can negotiate and renegotiate the best cell phone plan available.

Sony offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more, thus this will ship free.

Sony Store Canada Coupons: $25 – $50 Discount

Sony Store Canada Coupons: $25   $50 Discount

Sony Store Canada is offering $25 off orders of $200 or $50 off orders of $400 with the following coupon codes just in time for Mother’s Day.

Click here to shop @ Sony.ca now

  • Coupon Code: MOMDAY142550
  • Discount: $25 off $200
  • Coupon Code: MOMDAY142551
  • Discount: $50 off $400
  • Expiry: 30th May 2014

Sony does not often have coupons that just apply to anything. In fact, the last time we had just generic coupons from Sony was… lets just say I scrolled back through two years worth of Sony Store posts and none of them had generic Sony coupon codes in them. So there: rare!

I am pretty obsessed with the new Smartphone Camera that Sony has come out with. In the future I anticipate this thing is going to replace DSLRs and become the IT camera. It gives you better quality photos with a 10x optical zoom and is the size of your hand and fits into your pocket (mind the bulge). It is priced at $249.99, but after coupon code you will pay $224.99. I was given a tour of the device and a demo in a Sony Store in Vancouver and was suitably impressed.

For these and any future coupon codes for Sony, check out the forum. Get free shipping on any order online at Sony Canada.

Sony Canada: VAIO Fit 15E Laptop Only $626

Posted by on April 2, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Sony Canada: VAIO Fit 15E Laptop Only $626

Sony Canada is offering 10% to 30% off clearance customized laptops currently and they have this VAIO Fit 15E Laptop on sale for $626.49.

This laptop comes with:

  • Intel Core i5-3337U processor
  • 15.5″ LED backlit display (1366 x 768)
  • 8GB RAM
  • 500GB (5400rpm) HDD
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000

I did some price comparing but I had a hard time finding this exact configuration in this laptop. Usually I found it with a bit of a bigger hard drive and priced around $800. Given that was the usual price I found this laptop for, I figured this discounted price was a pretty good deal even with the smaller hard drive.

I don’t know much about the Sony VAIO but I was introduced to them when I was 19. My then boyfriend had the smallest laptop I had ever seen (I think it was like 11″) and it was a Sony VAIO. It was such a tiny little thing and it was white whereas the vast majority of laptops were black so that little Sony laptop has stuck in my brain all these years. It was a fantastic little device.

This is an online exclusive deal so you will not find this in your local stores. All items ship for free from Sony Canada.

Sony Store Canada: Buy $50 Gift Card & Get $50 Off $150 Gift Card

Posted by on December 14, 2013 at 9:30 AM

Sony Store Canada: Buy $50 Gift Card & Get $50 Off $150 Gift Card

When you buy a $50 gift card at The Sony Store Canada before (and including) December 24th, 2013, you will receive a certificate for $50 off $150 worth of gift cards that can be redeemed between December 26th and January 5th. This is an in store deal only, but worth taking the time to get!

This deal is actually pretty darn sweet if you are planning a big Sony Store purchase come Boxing Day. I have used this deal before and it is pretty great. I suggest buying the gift card and then saving it, because you can combine the gift card you bought ($50 worth) with the $50 off $150 certificate you will receive. So, if you are buying something that is exactly $150, then this certificate is like a 33% off coupon.

I have a Sony camera and accessories for it rarely ever go on sale. On my wish list is this basic Sony External flash which is $199.99. If I use the method above to pay for it, come December 26th the flash will only cost me $149.99, so I save 25% off the original price.

Sony Canada: Refurbished Google TV Player – $150 (Save $50)

Posted by on August 25, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Sony Canada: Refurbished Google TV Player   $150 (Save $50)

Sony Canada is selling refurbished Google TV Players for $50 off the regular (new) price. If you have wanted one of these devices for a while, then the $149.99 price tag is certainly going to pique your interest (originally $199.99).

I can’t find anywhere that specifically says this comes with the full warranty, but I did find that it comes with the warranty card which is just like the original, thus I assume it does. You save 25% off the non-refurbished price, which is great savings when you are talking about a $200 piece of equipment.

The Google TV Player gives you access to streaming content, made-for-TV apps, and Google Chrome all on your TV. You can use it for Netflix, to access the Sony Entertainment Network, and much much more. Here is what one buyer had to say:

I am very happy with my purchase. as an avid movie watcher, the ease of use and the comfortable, efficient remote has really made using Netflix a dream. I wouldn’t even say it’s a con, more like where it could go in the future, would be nice to customize the home screen a bit more, be able to set up your desktop how you like it. A great buy !

Sony Store also offers free shipping on all orders, so this device will ship to you for free.

Sony Canada: Educational Discounts

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

Sony Canada: Educational Discounts

I recently found out that Sony Canada has an Educational Store that offers specific discounts just to students and faculty. To access the store you will need to input your name, institution, school email address, and student ID (if you are a student). You will then gain access to the Educational Store that can save you money on many Sony purchases.

There are many deals on the educational side of things, here are a few examples:

  • Save over $350 on a DSLR and get a free accessories kit
  • Get up to an extra 10% off headphones
  • Save up to 30% when you bundle headphones and a speaker set
  • Get up to an extra 15% off accessories
  • Save up to 10% on all cameras (DSLR, Cybershot, NEX)
  • Buy a Playstation console and get a $50 gift coupon
  • Buy a eReader and get a $10 gift coupon
  • Buy an Xperia ZL and get a $75 gift coupon
  • Get an additional 5% off all custom laptops

The savings are endless and I am very excited because I am a student and I own a Sony camera. This Circular Polarizing Filter is on my wishlist and retails for $119.99 but as a student I can get it for $101.19. The filter is useful for eliminating reflection off of glass so I can shoot pictures through windows without the glare. I also totally want a remote control for shutter release. This RM-L1AM Alpha Remote Commander is regularly $94.99 but if you are a student or faculty member, you can pick it up for just $80.74. Woohoo!

All items ship for free from Sony Canada.

Sony Store Canada: Vertical Grip for α500/α550 Was $275 | Now $25

Posted by on April 14, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Sony Store Canada: Vertical Grip for α500/α550 Was $275 | Now $25

If you own a Sony DSLR α500/α550 or even a α580L you might want to take a look at this mind-blowing deal at the Sony Store. Get the compatible vertical grip for only $24.99, originally $274.99!

The description only mentions the first two models, the a500 and the a550. However, when I looked at compatible models it also showed the a580L. Wow, I wish this was compatible with my Sony DSLR – I would buy it in a heart beat! The following review beams over the usefulness of this grip, and mentions a few other models it is compatible with:

This grip is a great addition to your camera if you have an A500, A550, A560, or A580. With Sony, the batteries usually last a pretty long time – but when I use this grip loaded with 2 freshly charged batteries, I can get through a 10 hour wedding and not have to worry about changing batteries. The additional power is nice, but the best feature of the battery grip is how much more solid and easy-to-hold it makes your camera. I hardly ever take it off, even if I only have one battery. It makes the camera quite a bit bigger, but a LOT easier to handle. If you’ve got an A5xx and you can find one for less than $200, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick one up.

Let’s just say, this is way less than $200. Woohoo!

Sony Store Canada now offers free shipping on all orders from what I can see!

There are so many great deals at the Sony Store right now, this just feels like the tip. My favourite deal is the Super Zoom Sports Action Camera – it comes with a Carl Zeiss lens and though that may just sound like some guys’ name – this guy is mythical for camera lenses. His lenses are usually the biggest and the best you can buy for cameras and the clarity you get is phenomenal. I’m jealous.

Sony Canada: Save up to $200 on Headphones

Sony Canada is discounting a bunch of their headphones from the low end to the super high end noise cancelling sets. Something for everyone!

 click here to shop the headphone sale @ Sony.ca

There really is something here for everyone.

These are just a few of the offerings in this sale. There are tons more for different price points. The lowest I think I’ve seen was $19.99 which is perfect for people like me who can’t keep a set of wired headphones to save my life. I used to buy $50 Sony DJ style headphones until I broke my fifth pair or so. After that I started buying $20 earbuds and, after I burned through a few hundred dollars in those, eventually I settled into the $10 special at Wal~Mart.

Now if you are better at keeping your headphones in one piece, you can get the super expensive $300 pair I mentioned above or a set anywhere in between.

Sony Store Canada: 8″ Digital Photo Frame Was $130 | Now $80

Posted by on February 11, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Sony Store Canada: 8 Digital Photo Frame Was $130 | Now $80

Sony Canada has $50 off this Sony  8″ Digital Photo Frame, originally $129.99 and on sale for $79.99. It is currently ‘back-orderable’ meaning you can order it and it will ship when it is back in stock, approximately the 13th of February.

The frame stores up to 4000 photos and is compatible with Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, SD, and SDHC memory cards. It has a 8″ LCD screen with a 800 x 480 resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio. There is an auto timer with different settings, and it also has a clock, calendar and backlight.

Photo frames are a great way to get your photos off your computer and out for eyes to see. It is a shame how many pictures get stowed away on memory cards, computers, and cameras that never see the light of day. Get them out there to enjoy!

Sony Canada: $40 Off Compact Digital Camera – Now $79.99

Sony Canada: $40 Off Compact Digital Camera   Now $79.99

The Sony Store is offering this cute little Compact “Pocket Size” Digital Camera for only $79.99 which is $40 off the regular price of $119.99. You are saving 33%!

It is sold out in the silver and black, however you still can choose from the pink or the blue.

Key features:

  • 4x optical zoom
  • 360 degree Sweep Panorama
  • A large 2.7″ screen
  • smile shutter technology
  • face recognition – up to 8 faces
  • a smarter auto mode

There is really only one useful review and here it is:

This camera is great for the small foot print, but in order to have images that are not blurry you must hold it very still when shooting. This can be a little tough if you are wanting to take many candid images quickly. Overall though, I like the quality of the shots when they don’t come out blurry!

My suggestion is to get one of those ultra mini cute little Jobi tripods that bends around anything. Tripods solve stability issues and can help make sure that you are in the picture – not just the one taking the pictures all the time.

Shipping is free.

The Sony Store: Boxing Day Deal   Sony NEX F3K Camera with 18 55mm Lens Now $399.99 (Save $200)

I have huge respect for Sony cameras and this Boxing Day deal is out of this world where Sony is concerned. Get a Sony NEX-F3K Camera with 18-55mm lens for $200 (33%) off! Originally $599.99, this DSLR camera is now only $399.99!

I have always been amazed with these cameras. They are essentially a DSLR that fits into your pocket. Get fantastic shots, gorgeous pictures, and portability all in one.

I own a classic Sony DSLR – and part of me wishes I had waited for these gorgeous smaller varieties. They are clean, sleek, and this one is amazingly affordable! With the included lens it will work right out of the box – no extra accessories needed!This is a Boxing Week deal – and quantities are probably limited!

Sony Canada: Sneak Peek @ Boxing Week Deals Starting December 25th Online

Sony Canada: Sneak Peek @ Boxing Week Deals Starting December 25th Online

Sony Canada has given us a sneak peek at their boxing week sales starting on December 25th online and December 26th in-stores.  Sale will be for a limited time only while quantities last.

This wonderful 55” Bravia LED HX750 Internet HDTV is currently $2099.99 and will be only $1599.99 starting Christmas day.  I did find it at Samys.com for $1498, but that is after mail in rebate.  Without rebate it’s $2098.  It is also at Calibex.com for $2631.99.  I like this deal much better. You get the sale price right away with no mail in rebates. This TV has 3D in full HD, built in Wi Fi, Sony entertainment network, skype and so much more.

They are also advertising this Ultra Compact Palm Size Digital camera that is $249.99 for $199.99 during the sale.  I found this on sale at Amazon.com for $224.99 and that was the next lowest price I could find anywhere for this camera.  This is available in black, silver or pink and has tons of great features.

I also saw these Digital Noise Cancelling Headphones that are $199.99 regularly and during sale will be only $89.99. I found these for $160 on Nextag.com and $193.95 on Amazon.com, so this deal is truly awesome, but this expires on January 3rd 2013.

Remember this is a sneak peek, so there will be more. For more Boxing Week deals take a look at the Bargainmoose Boxing Day dashboard.

Shipping: Free for standard delivery to most areas.
