Akross Canada Coupon Code: Exclusive 20% off $100+

Do you have a kid in martial arts or are you yourself in martial arts? You don’t have to buy your gear and uniforms from your dojang at their inflated prices. You can get it from Akross Canada and you can also save 20% off your $100 and up purchase with our exclusive coupon code. Unfortunately, you can’t use this coupon on sale items.

Click here to shop @ Akross.ca now

  • Coupon Code: 20MOOSE
  • Discount: 20% off $100+
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

My two older boys are in martial arts and my youngest will be starting it in the fall. I absolutely love having them in martial arts, as I feel that not only does it promote physical fitness, it also teaches important life skills like discipline, focus and safety. My oldest child has done the gamut when it comes to extracurricular sports, but there is nothing he liked more than martial arts. It also gives him a goal to focus on, which is usually the next belt and ultimately, his black belt.

But, martial arts can be insanely expensive. I spend over $100 a month per kid just to do the classes, then there is the gear on top of that. I’m very excited about this coupon from Akross, as I had never thought to buy online. I’m also hoping to get started myself in martial arts, so this will save me money on my own uniform and sparring gear.

My oldest son now needs his own set of sparring gear, like this JCalicu head guard in red. I’m going to need to figure out the sizing chart to see what size will fit his head. It sells for $47.50.

Sometimes when you enroll your child in martial arts, the starting deal will include a uniform. If it doesn’t, you can get your own. My youngest will be starting in little dragons, and I love this dragon uniform for him, which I could also add his name too! It is $54.90 regularly priced.

If I got both the uniform and the head guard, I’d save the 20% and pay only $81.92, saving over $20. Every penny counts when you are a martial arts kid’s mother!

Akross Canada also offers free shipping on orders over $25, which is a really great and low threshold. If you are using this coupon, you definitely get free shipping and if you can’t use the coupon, you can at least get yourself free shipping on stuff I bet you are going to buy anyway!

Wagjag Canada: $39 For 6pk OxygenPlus ($75 value)

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Wagjag Canada: $39 For 6pk OxygenPlus ($75 value)

Pick up a six-pack of O+ Skinni Canadian Sport – Natural at Wagjag Canada for $39 with shipping included. This package has a $75 value; therefore, you are saving 48% on the original retail value (including shipping).

OxygenPlus (the manufacturer) sells the six-pack of O+ Skinni for $69.99, which means that the shipping is valued at $5. You have heard of oxygen bars, where people go to get a shot of oxygen to stimulate their lungs, relieve headaches, and energize their body. Consider this your oxygen bar to go. These transportable canisters each contain over 50 breaths of 95% enriched oxygen.

The can is about eight inches tall, so you can easily transport it in most winter jackets, backpacks, or gym bags. I did a little digging and found out that the canisters are not approved for air travel (on board), but you can check them in your luggage underneath. That is unfortunate, because in the middle of a twelve hour flight, with air that has been recycled by a couple hundred mouths, is exactly when I would like a shot of pure oxygen.

I am not sure how many of the claims about pure oxygen are true and how much is hype, but I do believe this would have benefits during winter sports that involve higher elevations. Skiing and snowboarding come to mind in particular, because the pros often go to high elevations where the oxygen level is much lower than it is down here. With a canister of pure oxygen, it could help them breath better and have a better run because oxygen feeds the blood (and the blood feeds the muscles).

I did a little price comparing, but no one came close to the Wagjag Canada deal. Target.com has a three-pack of the Oxygen Plus 3-Pack O+ Skinni Natural for $35.97 US. They do not ship to Canada. Also, here you have half the amount of product for almost the same price as the Wagjag Canada deal. Newegg.ca sells the six-pack for $69.99 with free shipping, which was the best other deal I could find.

The product will arrive within four to six weeks of deal closing date. There is a limit of ten per person. Taxes and shipping are both included, so there are no additional charges.

Have you ever tried pure oxygen before? If so, then I would love to get your feedback on how it tastes and how it made you feel!

How To Score Cheap Professional Sports Tickets

Posted by on May 12, 2014 at 8:00 PM

How To Score Cheap Professional Sports Tickets

NBA and NHL playoff seasons are upon us, and it is my family’s favourite time of the year, especially when our favourite teams are in the finals, which unfortunately is not the case this year.  If the Senators and the Raptors had been in the playoffs, we would have had a very happy house!   My girls happily watch sports with their dad throughout the year; it’s a fun way to spend time together.   We’re looking forward to being able to take the girls to some live games eventually.   Although I’d love to be able to go to an NHL playoff game this year, it’s financially impractical for us.  One of the closest professional sports teams is the Toronto Maple Leafs, but according to Forbes, their tickets are the most expensive in the NHL, averaging $368.60 per ticket!  Tickets to the Leafs are out, but what are some other, less-expensive ticket options for us?

Book in advance or at the last minute

Next year we are taking the kids to Orlando, Florida, and it would be a perfect time to take the entire family to an Orlando Magic game.   According to SeatGeek, the average cost of a ticket to a game is $56 per person.  To be honest, this is too expensive for our family, as my children will still be very small when we go (they will be 5 and 7), and I doubt they will appreciate the game to the extent we would so we need to look for some cheaper ticket options.  As we are planning our trip almost ten months in advance, we have lots of time to look around for the best tickets prices.  Given that we’re not married to the idea of attending a game, we also have the flexibility to wait until the last minute to see if we can get a good deal.  TickPick is an online auction which sells tickets to many professional sporting events.   If you sign up to their ticket blog, you can get a small discount if you buy your tickets through them.  Last minute tickets will likely be etickets or deals which require local pickup, and since we will have a car for our trip, this will not be a problem for us.  We will keep an eye on all the deals and determine which tickets to purchase before our trip.

Buy tickets direct from the sports club

Another option for cheaper tickets is to subscribe to the team’s fan page, facebook page and other social media outlets.  The Orlando Magic’s official website has theme nights and promotional offers that run through the year, and they also have ongoing partner promotions where you can win prizes including tickets to a game.  I will definitely subscribe to this website in advance of our trip and hope that we win tickets before our trip.  Free is a much better price than $56 per ticket!

Check out the junior leagues

Obviously, the pace and quality of junior league games is not of the same caliber as most professional games, but they still provide fantastic entertainment usually at a very reasonable price.  The Canadian Hockey League is a great example of top quality hockey played in local city centres at a reasonable cost.  According to NHL, over half (50.6%) of players drafted to the NHL have played hockey in the CHL.  We have an OHL team in my hometown, and we have been to a number of games throughout the years. Oftentimes the company I work for will rent a box, and employees are able to purchase discounted tickets to the game.  The company throws in snacks in addition to part of the ticket cost, and I am able to enjoy an awesome night of hockey for practically free.   If there is a sports team close to you, and your employer has a social committee, take a few minutes to recommend this as an option for a social event.

Pre-season games

Last year my husband and I attended a pre-season game at our local arena, which was super fun.   Although the game didn’t have all the players participating, it was a fun (and cheap!) way to see our favourite team play professional hockey. Additionally, because the game was local, we were able to save money on travel expenses to the game.  The tickets were also extremely reasonably priced, at around $25 per ticket.  There were also some local promotional codes available that some of my friends who work in the health care industry were able to take advantage of.

The thrill of seeing a professional sports team in person is simply amazing.  Even if you don’t like sports per se, the experience of being in a large arena with many people cheering is intoxicating, and rooting for your team is a ton of fun, assuming that people around you are good sports about it!

Bargainmoosers, how do you score good prices on professional sporting events?

Bass Pro Shops (US) Coupon Code: Free Shipping on $75

Posted by on March 19, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Bass Pro Shops (US) Coupon Code: Free Shipping on $75

Bass Pro Shops (US) currently has a coupon code for free shipping when you spend $75 or more at their online store. I think it is perfect timing because their Online Fishing Classic Sale is currently happening and their Outlet store is well stocked.

Click here to shop @ Bass Pro Shops now

  • Coupon Code: DEAL14
  • Discount: free shipping on $75+ to Canada
  • Expiry: Unknown

There will be a $3.50 brokerage fee charged on all Canadian orders because this is a US store. However, if you are a major fisher and this store has what you really need, then this coupon and the sale could be a god send! Because this is a US store (with only a few locations in Canada) I was looking for the best deals and though the fishing sale area is pretty nice, I gravitated towards the outlet.

I found these HotMocs Boot Covers that were $39.99 and are now $9.77 (76% off), which are great for keeping your feet warm. Another great deal is this Deluxe RodBunk – Fly Rod that was $30.99 and is now $11.77 (62% off), which makes it far easier to transport your rods.

Here are a few more good deals:

These are all big deals on great outdoor wear and equipment. I added a few items to my cart to test out how much shipping would normally be to Canada, and it was over $20. So you are saving a good deal on shipping alone. Your order will ship from the US, so customs/duties may apply. If you live in Calgary or Toronto, you could also pick up your order in store.

All prices in USD.

Amazon Canada: 25% Or More Off Golf Clubs

Amazon Canada: 25% Or More Off Golf Clubs

Fore! Tee time is almost here and Amazon has golf clubs on sale at 25% off or more to get you started out on the links.

Mine is a family that golfs. I think my husband only agreed to having three kids so he would have a ready-made foursome. My two oldest kids already golf and have their own clubs and I’m sure my youngest won’t be far behind. My husband bought himself an adequate set a few years ago, but I know he’d love to upgrade or get a few new clubs here or there. He will definitely be perusing this sale at Amazon.

This Affinity OutLaw golf driver is $35 off, now only $53.93, was $89.99. Apparently this club can send your ball into orbit. Sounds cool.

If you are looking for a complete set, check out the Pinemeadow 11296 pre complete golf set with 16 pieces. With all the clubs you need for a successful day on the links, this set has glowing reviews. Said to be decent clubs, especially for beginners, although the bag may not be the best quality. Was $275, now $198.25.

Shipping is free on any orders over $25.

Shop.ca: Up to 59% Off Tennis Gear

Shop.ca is offering up to 59% off tennis rackets and accessories from Berten Sports.

The best deal in the sale is on this DUNLOP AeroGel 4D 300 Lite Racquet Racket Strung (Grip 4 1/2) that was $169.95 and is now on sale for $69.95. The cover is included and the racquet weighs in at 265 grams.

If you need a bag to carry around all your gear, you can save 50% on this Head Maria Sharapova Tennis Racquet Bag Combi. Originally $99.95, this lovely white bag is now on sale for $49.95. Featuring a CCT + racquet compartment for 6-8 racquets and comes with a detachable and adjustable padded shoulder strap for comfort.

Tennis is actually one of the few sports I have been looking at getting into. I tried both squash and racquetball but I was not fond of squash and I always hit the racquetball too hard. I prefer a larger target and because I have a very strong swing I was thinking I might do well (or at least survive) at tennis.

Do you play tennis? Have any tips for beginners?

Canada Post Coupon: Free NHL Pen With $25 Purchase

Canada Post is offering a free NHL pen when you spend $25 or more on winter sports and NHL merchandise.

Click here to shop sports @ Canada Post now

  • Coupon Code: CANADA2014
  • Discount: free pen(s)
  • Expiry: Unknown

I tested out this deal by adding this NHL® Team Jerseys Stamp Booklet – All 7 Teams set to my cart which costs $44.10. I then went to checkout but realized that to enter the coupon code I needed to get into my shopping cart. Click on the shopping cart icon so you can actually enter the coupon code. I entered the coupon code and it gave me an error message at first, but it also worked. It added a Montreal Canadiens Pack of 2 pens to my cart which is valued at $3.99.

According to the promotion, you are randomly assigned pens so you do not get to pick which team they are from. If you are picking up some hockey stamps it is a nice little bonus. As this promotion requires a $25 minimum you will also get free shipping as the free shipping for Canada Post requires the same minimum.

For this and any future Canada Post coupon codes be sure to check the forum before placing an order.

Hockey Canada Coupon Code: 25% off Team Canada Gear for Game Day

Posted by on February 23, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Hockey Canada Coupon Code: 25% off Team Canada Gear for Game Day

It’s Gold Medal game day, Canada. Celebrate with a great sale on Team Canada stuff from Hockey Canada!

Click here to get Team Canada gear @ Shop.HockeyCanada.ca

  • Coupon Code: fs23feb
  • Discount: 25% off Team Canada Merch
  • Expiry: 23rd February 2014, Midnight ET

Everyone needs some Team Canada gear. I have two or three Jerseys. They don’t fit, I haven’t taken them out in years but I have them and if for some reason Team Canada walks in to my living room and wants me to prove my love for them, I can wave the jerseys around like a crazy person.

You can pick up the ultimate fan gear, a Nike Team Canada jersey for $105 with the coupon. You save $35. That’s kind of the ultimate piece to show that you’re a fan but not everyone cares to spend that much money. That’s ok. You can pick up a hat, glassware, hoodies or pretty much anything else you could use to show your support for Team Canada. You can even wrap your kids in tiny toques or Team Canada Jerseys.

The one caveat here is that shipping is ludicrously expensive, especially if you live away from their London, Ontario shipping depot. On the plus side, it’s a fixed rate it seems so if you are ordering three $140 jerseys and live in PEI, the shipping isn’t that bad, especially with the 25% off.  Same if you’re picking up the $350 leather jacket. If you’re buying one pair of $13 earmuffs and want them shipped to Newfoundland, just drive to a store. it’s not worth it. The coupon expires at Midnight ET so if you want to deck yourself out in the red and white, get on it right now!

Also, just in case you were living under a rock, this sale is happening because right now, as I write this, we are playing Sweden for Olympic gold! Just about 4 minutes left in the second and we’re winning 2-0. GO CANADA GO!!

  • Coupon Code: HSRADAR20
  • Discount: 20% off Hockey Shot Extreme Radar Gun
  • Expiry: Unknown

Well, maybe you won’t be the fastest shot because of this, but you can check out how fast your shot is with it. It’s a great training aid and a good way to set goals for yourself. The radar is competing with the SpeedTrac radar, also sold at HockeyShot, and is currently on sale for $104.95 which is $35 less than the SpeedTrac. On top of that, you get 20% off with this coupon, so you save another $20.99 and end up getting this for $83.96. That’s a pretty sweet deal.

It has a ton of features, too. It has a tripod mount, a KMH/MPH switch, a huge LED display and a voice mode where it will call out your speed to you. You can even set it to pick up if you’re standing still while shooting or if you’re skating towards the unit, so it won’t get confused by the person coming at it. It has a bit of memory, so you can review your last ten shot speeds.

I’m not a hockey player at all, but there is a really good review on YouTube. It’s done by the guys at HockeyReview HQ and if you’re looking at getting this item, you should definitely check it out. They do really good work over there.

Shipping is extra and is based on where you live. The coupon has no expiry so it could end any time. The review I mentioned above was only put out two days ago, so I’m thinking maybe the sale and the discount is to launch the new product, but I’m really not sure.

Hockey players, is this something you would use or have used? Let me know in the comments below!

GolfBallPlanet.com: Used Balls Starting At $4/Dozen

GolfBallPlanet.com: Used Balls Starting At $4/Dozen

Get a dozen name brand golf balls for as little as $4/dozen at GolfBallPlanet.com.

I don’t golf, but my father-in-law does, and he’s a serious golfer. He golfs twice a day if he can. Up early, missing family events, etc… So, when I heard about him ordering three crates of used golf balls, I know they have to be good. We even bought him some used golf balls for Christmas and he loved them.

Right now you will pay as little as $4/dozen balls. Now of course, you aren’t getting a set of mint condition Titelist Pro V1′s for $4, but you can get some respectable balls for that price. The better the grade the more you will pay, so some of them are a bit more money, but you’re getting a better ball. Unfortunately they don’t have the before prices, but I’ve looked at the site before and they definitely didn’t have any $4 dozens.

As far as shipping, it is $9.99 unless you order over $100 worth of balls, then it’ll be free. They are located in BC and I believe they ship from there, so no duties for us. I looked around and found a few people in Canada saying that hey didn’t have to pay duties.

JaysShop Canada: Blue Jays Fan Appreciation Sale   30% Off

You’ve got to support the team! Especially when the team is giving you 30% off.

Let’s get this out of the way. I hate baseball. Sorry, that’s a lie, I find baseball just about the most boring thing to watch. Watching it live isn’t too bad, but on T.V. or even worse, listening on the radio, is miserable. I’d rather watch golf or curling. I don’t know why I had to tell you that, but I thought I’d annoy all the baseball fans out there before I gave them a deal.

If you’re in Canada and love baseball, you might like the Blue Jays. They are kind of the only “Home and Native Land” option for baseball fans. The Expos are long gone, so we’re out of options. And if you’re a fan, you might as well show it off with some swag from the Jays Shop. Here are a few things you can pick up.

They have a bunch of stuff for kids of all ages, men and women. They also have sweaters to keep warm in the long, cold baseball off-season.

Shipping is based on what you get and where you are.
