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: 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 @

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

Posted by on January 14, 2013 at 11:00 PM

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.

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.

  • built-in flash
  • 180° tiltable LCD screen (very useful)
  • up to 5.5 fps

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 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 for $1498, but that is after mail in rebate.  Without rebate it’s $2098.  It is also at 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 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 and $193.95 on, 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.

Sony Canada has placed their Sony eReader on sale. Originally $139.99 the eReader is on sale for $99.99.

You can get the Sony eReader in black, white, or in red. It is the lightest eReader available and has paper like technology to make it easy to read both indoors and outdoors, even in direct sunlight.

You can store up to 1,200 books on the system, and one charge can last up to a month’s worth of reading.

Now if you are on a bit of a tighter budget, there is an excellent offer from Sony on refurbished eReaders. You can get a refurbished Sony eReader in black, red, or white… with a bonus case for only $79.99 (was $119.99)!

That cover is worth $40 (though on sale for $20), so this bundle is truly worth the money. It will automatically add the case to your cart when you get the bundle. The case colour will match your eReader colour: so if you choose a red eReader, you will also get a red case.

November 14 Save up to $500 When You Bundle Home Entertainment Systems

Posted by on November 14, 2012 at 9:30 PM Save up to $500 When You Bundle Home Entertainment Systems

Sony Canada sells a lot of TVs. The problem is that TVs get a little lonely sometimes. Sony doesn’t want the TVs to get lonely, so they are making it foolishly easy for you to get a Blu-Ray Home Theater friend for your new TV!

There are six bundles available with different TVs and Blu-Ray Home Theater systems. Here they are:

A few notes on the links above; First off, I split the links up so that if you click on the TV, you see the info for the TV. If you click on the Blu-Ray Home Theater, you see the info for that product. They don’t have a link that shows you both items as a bundle with all their specs. All the prices will reflect savings only at checkout, and your price in the cart will show the full price.

You can’t really go wrong with any of the deals on here. They are all really good. It just depends on what you want/need, I suppose. Luckily, Sony has a good range of sizes and qualities here.

The Blu-Ray home theater systems are great too. If you’re going to have a nice HDTV like one of these, you really need a home theater system. The speakers in these TVs are generally pretty terrible and you really need a better setup, whether it be a sound bar or a full fledged Blu-Ray home theater system like they have here. While they’re bundled, you might as well get one! You’re only paying $100 or $300 for the home theater system, depending on which bundle you pick.

November 14 FREE (or $50) Playstation 3 with Purchase of a Sony TV!

Posted by on November 14, 2012 at 7:00 PM FREE (or $50) Playstation 3 with Purchase of a Sony TV!

Everybody is laughing at you. You know why? Because you don’t have a PS3. All the cool kids have one. But you know what they DON’T have? A FREE PS3 from Sony Canada!!

There are five TVs available and, depending on which one you get, you will have $250 or $200 off the price when you bundle it with a PS3. As it turns out, the PS3 costs $250 so you effectively pay $50 or nothing at all for a PS3! These are the TVs.

Honestly, of all my equipment, I think the PS3 was my best purchase. Actually, I think it’s tied with my HDTV. In any event, the PS3 is awesome. It has some of the best games out there, but that isn’t the only thing it has going for it. It is a Blu-Ray player. It has some great media consumption channels including Netflix (the love of my life), MLB TV, NHL GameCenter and Crackle. There is also some awesome stuff in the Playstation Store and good integration with other PS devices like the PS Vita. You can even stream/play your own media from local OR network storage.

People talk about set top boxes a lot but every time I look into them, they don’t do as much as my PS3 does. If they do more than my PS3 it’s either a bunch of stuff that I can’t use in Canada (Hulu, for example) or stuff that really doesn’t matter to me personally (like channel guide data when I don’t have cable). If you haven’t gotten in on this awesome machine, this is an amazing opportunity.

And what about these TVs? Well, they are all Bravia level Internet-enabled LED TVs. If you are up on all the TV technology, you know that Bravia TVs are good. If you don’t, I just told you!

Sony Canada: Bundle Select TV’s & Home Theatre Systems & Save Up To $499.99

Posted by on November 8, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Sony Canada: Bundle Select TVs & Home Theatre Systems & Save Up To $499.99

Sony is offering a chance to save up to $499.99 when you bundle select TV’s and select Blu-ray Home Theatre Systems. This offer is valid until November 21st 2012 or while supplies last.

We have recently changed our livingroom around and decided that we need a bigger TV, so we are shopping and waiting for the right deal. This may just be it.

With a deal like this, I would go right for the biggest. The 55” HX750 Series TV is a regular price of $2,099.99 and the 5.1ch Blu-ray Disc Home Theatre is $799.99. That’s a total of $2,899.98 for the regular price, but when I bundle them, I get them both for $2,399.99, saving $499.99. Who would not want to save $500 when buying electronics?

I also like the 55”EX645 Series TV for $1,499.99 bundled with the BDVE390 3D Blu-ray Home Theatre System for $399.99. These total to $1,899.98, but with the bundle, I pay only $1,599.99, saving me $299.99.

My living room is not huge, but a larger TV with Home Theatre will definitely need some new lighting and popcorn.

Shipping: Free on most items.

November 7 Save $150 on Digital Noise Cancelling Headphones + FREE Air Canada Maple Leaf Club Pass ($70 Value)

Posted by on November 7, 2012 at 3:00 AM Save $150 on Digital Noise Cancelling Headphones + FREE Air Canada Maple Leaf Club Pass ($70 Value)

It’s noisy out there but that doesn’t mean you cant enjoy your audio! will help you block it all out.

First off, these are expensive. They aren’t your $12 earbuds that you buy at walmart. They are a high quality, high end, active noise cancelling audio device and are priced accordingly. The regular price on these is $399.99 but you will get $150 off bringing the total down to $249.99.

There are two kinds of people who will buy these: people who have money to burn and people who really need them. Both are fine!

If you have the money to burn and you just want to get some amazing headphones, I highly recommend Sony. I am terribly rough on headphones so I can’t buy nice ones for myself anymore. It’s because I break them. I’m terrible. I used to regularly buy a set of $50 Sony headphones until I broke my fifth set or so. It isn’t that the build quality is bad, I’m just really hard on my gear. Anywho, back to burning money. There is no problem with having money so if you have the means to buy these, go for it and enjoy!

The second group is people who need noise cancelling features. There are actually a staggering amount of places that these would be handy. School, work, on an airplane or even taking a bus. If you’re like me and you are on the phone a lot for your job, rarely take a bus, train or plane and don’t go to school, then you likely don’t need these but if you find yourself wanting to throw chatty people out the train window on your daily commute, these are probably a better option.
