Walmart Canada has discounted the InnoTab 3S Doc McStuffins Bundle from $89.95 down to $60. This InnoTab 3S bundle has a special facial plate for Doc McStuffins and comes with a matching Doc McStuffins case. As this bundle costs over $50, you will receive free shipping on it as well.

The Source Canada: Free Speaker with Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Purchase ($100 Value)

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 12:00 PM

The Source Canada: Free Speaker with Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Purchase ($100 Value)

The Source Canada is giving away a free Samsung Bluetooth speaker valued at $100 when you purchase the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1″ tablet for $269.99.

First, I price compared the price of this tablet with other online retailers. The speaker would not exactly be ‘free’ if they had built the price of it into the tablet’s price. However, I found everything on the level. This same tablet retails for:

  • $269.96 @ Staples Canada
  • $269.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $268 @ Walmart Canada

I also found it over $300 at but that is through a secondary seller: I do not think it counts. The Source’s price is pretty much the same as any other retailer, thus the free speaker is indeed a nice bonus.

You are purchasing the white model. Your new tablet comes with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory. That memory can be expanded with a 32GB microSD card inserted into the microSD slot on the tablet. That would give you a total of 48GB of memory. This 10.1″ tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, one of the newest android operating systems. The reviews rave on this tablet no matter where I look. One reviewer said:

for what this tablet offers at the going price, it beats out the competition. The battery life is great, and the performance keeps up with some demanding apps.

Other reviewers say that it is great for kids (has a kid mode) and the screen size is much better than the 7″, which they found a bit small. Other reviewers praise the speed, the crisp-clear screen, and the ability to expand memory. Another reviewer says:

I was fortunate enough to get this table to while on sale but would be willing to pay full price anyway. The display is clear and crisp, great battery life, extremely fast and feature packed. I highly recommend this tablet to anyone as it is kid friendly as well.

Now, this deal is great but they really do not tell you anything about the Samsung Bluetooth Speaker you are getting for free, which is a shame. I tried to photo match by browsing websites, but I just could not figure out which speaker this is. If you recognise the free Samsung speaker being offered, please drop us a line.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

7″ Android Google Certified 4.4 Tablet With Dual Cameras & 8 GB Only $24 + Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 15, 2015 at 9:14 AM

7 Android Google Certified 4.4 Tablet With Dual Cameras & 8 GB Only $24 + Shipping @ (EXPIRED)

Walmart is having a clearance blowout sale, but there is a hidden deal. Pick up this hidden 7” Android 4.4 Tablet with Dual Cameras and 8GB for only $24!

I think almost everyone can find a use for a tablet these days. I was originally going to tell you about a great deal on this 7” Android tablet with only one camera on clearance today, but along the way found an even sweeter deal! The 7” Android 4.4 with dual cameras comes with just a little bit more in the tech specs.

  • 8 GB memory that is expandable to 32 GB via microSD card
  • 512M Ram
  • Screen resolution of 1024*600 HD
  • Running Android 4.4 OS – Kit Kat
  • Front and rear facing cameras
  • Google certified
  • Full access to the Google Play Store and apps
  • 12-month warranty

So looking at this tablet, do not expect it to hold up to the heavy use of an adult or teenager. There are many reasons to consider a cheap tablet such as the 7” Android dual camera tablet. Here are a few ideas that I had for this tablet.

  • Kid tablet for basic games
  • Hold your recipes digitally without dripping on your phone
  • YouTube viewer
  • E-reader
  • Digital Picture Frame
  • Selfie station for a party
  • Amazing swag gifts for a party (invite me!)


I already mentioned that this is a better deal than the other Android tablet on clearance. Let’s check out some similar tablets on the market elsewhere. I found a Double Power 7-Inch Android 4.1 Dual Core Tablet with 8GB of memory and only a front facing camera at on sale for $55.99. At, the most inexpensive tablet I could find was the D2 Pad 8 GB tablet also running Kit Kat. This tablet will set you back $70.89. Over at, I found the 7” Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite that also has 8GB of ram but runs Jelly Bean. For this tablet, you will pay $129.92 on sale.


At this price for electronics, reviews are never going to be perfect. I did see this tablet carries a three out of a five-star review.  Multiple users talk about how the tablet does a great job for some of the low use suggestions I mention above. There are of course some people frustrated it is slow, but if you upgrade the memory slot it will help. Here is one happy grandma keeping her grandkids entertained.

7 Android Google Certified 4.4 Tablet With Dual Cameras & 8 GB Only $24 + Shipping @ (EXPIRED)


Sadly, there is no more free shipping unless you spend a minimum of $50. This item also does not qualify for free shipping to a Canadian Post stop, I am guessing because it is electronic. Shipping to most locations is a flat rate of $4.95. You also have the option of filling your cart to the $50 minimum to receive completely free shipping.

Snag this secret deal now. Once the word gets out, I bet these tablets will be flying out the door.

NCIX Canada: NVIDIA Shield 32GB Tablet – Now Just $460 + 3 Freebies ($160 Value!)

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 9:55 PM

NCIX Canada: NVIDIA Shield 32GB Tablet   Now Just $460 + 3 Freebies ($160 Value!)Get it while you still can: the NVIDIA Shields tablet is currently on sale for just $459.99 and even comes with the following 3 freebies: a cover, a controller and a games coupon with a $29.99 value. Shipping is free as well.

An unlocked version of this tablet is also currently on sale at Newegg for $449.99, down from the original price tag of $499.99. It may be $10 cheaper than at NCIX but it doesn’t include all of the freebies, which would have otherwise cost the following amounts:

Altogether, that comes up to $145.97 in savings!Let’s say you were to get this tablet at Newegg along with all of these products separately, then you would be looking at a $595.96. That’s without tax, so can you just imagine how much more you would have to pay?

Arguably, you wouldn’t necessarily need all those items but let’s face it, a cover is extremely useful and so is the included games coupon. Plus, if you plan to use this tablet to game, then the controller is a must-buy as it will significantly enhance your game play.

To get to the tablet itself though, it features an 8″ screen that is 1920 x 1200 and is full HD. It also boasts 2.2GHz ARM Cortex A15 CPU and 2GB RAM.

The cool part about this tablet is that you could even transform it into a console by hooking it up to a TV and playing your favourite game that way with the use of the controller.

On PC Mag, this tablet garnered a fab rating of 4/5 stars with this as the bottom line:

If you need a tablet with always-on connectivity, the Nvidia Shield Tablet should be at the top of your list whether you use it for gaming or not.

As you can see, you don’t necessarily need to be a gamer to get it. If you don’t anticipate playing any games, then you could always try to sell the remote and the games coupon. You might want to keep the cover as it’s flexible enough to be molded to stand in a variety of positions — definitely very handy, especially for watching TV shows or movies!

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Posted by on February 26, 2015 at 8:00 PM

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I love my tablet and phone, but  I do not like paying extra for all of the nifty accessories. While I feel strongly a good case is important to protect my device, I try to limit my accessory purchases. No need to do without those holders and chargers, hack it together instead. Here are some great DIY Accessories for your tablet or phone that you can make much cheaper than buying.

Wood Charging Station

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

This unique handmade docking station will look super chic in your house, or is fancy enough to give it as a gift. Check out this hack from Scarlett Words to create a simple charging station from a slice of wood and a lightning cable. A handmade docking station like this one would run $50-$80. This hack could easily be adapted to charge any device. Attach a small portable speaker and you can also jam to all your favourite tunes.

Tablet Holder For Your Kitchen

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I do not use paper recipes very often anymore. I am always consulting my tablet or phone for new recipes to use in the kitchen. Check out this solution to spilling the flour on your iPad from Mamie Jane’s. This beautiful tablet holder made from an upcycled wood cutting board, a child’s block, and a scrabble tile holder is just my style. Beautiful and chic, no one will know you made it yourself instead of spending $40-$50 on a similar holder.

Bling Case

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Love the look of a case covered in bling? I hate that $25-$50 price tag that usually goes with it. Use the tutorial at Crafting Rebellion instead to create a super shiny case on a budget. Pick up a less expensive case at the dollar store and let your glue and jewels do the magic.

Touchscreen Compatible Gloves

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Picture this, you are out in the snow and something funny happens. You whip out your phone and your hands freeze as you try to snap the perfect shot. Rewind that scenario and turn your favourite gloves into tech gloves with this cool hack from natalme on Blogher. With a needle, metallic thread and your favourite pair of gloves, in just a few minutes you can make any gloves touch screen responsive. This blogger suggests special conductive wire, but it is possible to use any conductive metallic thread. Test the thread in a shop by holding one end of the skein while brushing the other end on your phone to see if it responds. A cheap pair of super thin gadget gloves will cost about $10-$15. A nicer pair that will keep your hands warm all winter can easily cost $40-$80.

Tablet Mount For The Car Headrest

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

Blackcabbit has a great solution to turn your iPad or other tabler into a movie theater for your kids on long trips. Using some elastic and a few other small items, this dad creates an entertainment system that stays put. This is perfect if your kid falls asleep during movies on car rides. Most commercial headrest mounts range from $25-$40. I made a similar mount for my daughter before our last road trip and it worked perfectly.

Trick Out Your Earmuffs

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

If you spend some time commuting in the cold, you need to make these tricked out earmuff headphones from Brit+Co. These earmuffs do require some basic sewing skills, but even a novice sewer like me should be able to complete these. Make yourself a pair in any style instead of splurging for a $20-$65 pair.

Project Photos and Videos On Your Wall

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I can remember sitting down in my grandfather’s living room while he proudly showed off his slides from years ago. Impress your friends without a pricey digital projector by displaying your photos on the wall. This projector from Photojojo will only cost you a single dollar. While the image may not be perfectly clear, a crisp digital projector will cost you $75-$200. Project movies on the wall for a fun movie night.

No Sew Phone or MP3 Player Holder For Running

8 Accessories To Make For Your Tablet or Phone

I love those armbands for running that securely hold my device while exercising. Each one can easily cost $30 and I am a fickle about keeping up my exercise program, so I am always hesitant to buy them. Enter this creative no-sew arm holder from Wonder How To. With a placemat, some strong glue and two hair ties you can make your own quick holder. For a more adjustable version, make the armband a little longer and add some velcro strips.

Bargainmoosers, what tech accessories would you love to have?

Really impressed with how well made and quick it is. The kids love it. The camera isn’t the best but don’t expect that will matter to most users.

Elsewhere in Canada, this tablet is currently priced at $119 from Walmart, Best Buy and Future Shop too.

I hope you all have a great day today, my fellow deal hunters!

Osprey Tablet & Laptop Backpack Was $150 | Now $45 + Free Shipping @ Live Out There

Posted by on February 9, 2015 at 11:20 AM

Osprey Tablet & Laptop Backpack Was $150 | Now $45 + Free Shipping @ Live Out There

The Osprey Tablet & Laptop 40th Anniversary Pack is on final sale @ Live Out There now for 70% off. This pack designed to hold your tablet or laptop was $150 but now is only $45. Free shipping is available with every order @ Live Out There.

Live Out There is having a mega clearance sale with items up to 70% off. Check out this sleek solution for your laptop or tablet on the go. The Osprey Company designed this sleek pack that was $150 but is now only $45.

Osprey is known for building quality and rugged hiking backpacks that stand up to big adventures. They have applied the same technology to this slim pack designed for commuters to hold your laptop or tablet in a slim bag. This pack is perfect for someone who likes to commute by bike, train or bus. Maybe you like to take adventures in city and need to keep your tablet or laptop close. I could see this pack being useful for a student who wants a lighter bag. I could imagine this pack working well for someone who likes to use their technology close out in the woods.

This backpack is slim and sleek. It comes in a neutral black colour and fits a laptop that is up to 14ʺ/36cm. This pack has several pockets to keep you organized. It has a pixel pouch that allows you to access a tablet without pulling the device all of the way out of the backpack. Simply lift the flap to check your device, then hop back on your bike or train and be on your way. I could see that feature coming in handy when you have saved directions or maps on your iPad, whether you are wi-fi enabled or not. I often will calculate my directions at home on my iPod touch and snap pictures of the step-by-step directions. Since I do not have wi-fi on the go, this is a great cheap alternative to a GPS. I would also use this pack to read my book on the train when I am hoping on and off the metro quickly between stops.

I found this exact media backpack at for $89.95. This is a special edition backpack and seems to have cleared out of most of the other stores. I also found a comparable Pixel Media backpack at Altitude Sports for $160. The Osprey Unisex Spin 22 is also a similar comparable media bag that I found available at Altitude Sports for $160. Osprey’s media bags do not seem to be carried many places in Canada. I would consider this a close buy to a SwissGear Backpack. A similar laptop backpack that is a little bigger and made by SwissGear is retailing for $86 at Amazon.

There are not any reviews available on this pack, I suspect since it is an anniversary edition. Most of the hiking backpacks that Osprey makes seem to have high ratings. The comparable media packs that I mentioned are available at Altitude Sports also both have five out of five stars.

Bargainmoosers, what do you use to stash your tablet or laptop on the go?

Save up to $200 on PCs and 50% off Other Electronics @ Dell Canada’s Boxing Day Sale (Starts 26 Dec)

Posted by on December 19, 2014 at 7:50 PM

Save up to $200 on PCs and 50% off Other Electronics @ Dell Canadas Boxing Day Sale (Starts 26 Dec)

The Dell Canada Boxing Day flyer is available for  you to view now. Stay home this Boxing Day and enjoy big savings. There will be lots of limited quantity doorbusters available during this Boxing Day Sale. The sale will start as early as 6 a.m. EST on Friday the 26th of December. This Dell Boxing Day sale will end on the 29th of December.

I think most people relate Boxing Day to excellent offers on electronics, TVs and computers. It is the best time of the year to get discounts on any of these items you may need. During the Boxing Day sales you can save up to $200 off select computers and up to 50% off other electronics and accessories.

There seem to be quite a few decent offers in the Boxing Day flyer. If you are in need (or want) a tablet, the new Dell Venue 8 Pro 3000 Series Tablet will allow fun and productivity to meet. This tablet was $219.99 but during the Boxing Day sales you will pay as low as $149.99. The Dell Venue 8 Pro 8″ 32GB Tablet is $299.95 @

The Dell 24 Monitor seems to be popular. You can purchase this particular Dell 24 Monitor E2414H for just $119.99 during the Boxing Day sale, which is 50% off the regular price. This monitor has full HD and a max of 60Hz which is basically 60 fps. If you are gaming, most games are set to suit 60Hz anyway. This Dell 24 Monitor is $199.98 @

If you get frustrated with the trackpad on your laptop like I do, then you would probably like to have a mouse instead. I have had a much more pleasant experience with my laptop since I acquired a mouse. The Dell Wireless Optical Mouse WM123 will be on sale during the Boxing Day Sale for just $9.99. That is a pretty drastic price drop from the regular price of $19.99. This mouse is known for excellent performance and battery life. No drivers are required, just plug in the USB anchor and go.

I’ve been saving my nickels and dimes all year to get a TV during these Boxing Day sales. Right now my TV takes up so much space in my living room, and I am pretty sure that one of the speakers has blown, but I will be strong until Boxing Day! has this Haier LLC 50 Inch Full HD LED Backlight TV on sale for $499.99 during their Boxing Day Sale, which is much better than the previous price of $599. If you want to spend $100 more, you can get the Haier 55″ Full HD LED Backlight TV on sale for $599. The Haier 50 Inch Full HD LED TV is $600 @ also offers financial assistance on items that exceed $249. If you pay the item off in full within 6 months of the purchase, you will also benefit from no interest. Join Dell Advantage (free) and you will get 5% back in Dell rewards.

Shipping will be included with any purchase you make from I even like that they have multiple payment methods. I don’t personally like to use my VISA when making online purchases, so it is great that they accept payment via PayPal as well.

For more great Boxing Day deals you can check out our forums.

Hipstreet Titan 2 7″ Google Tablet ONLY $50 Plus Free Shipping @ Walmart Canada

Posted by on December 16, 2014 at 8:23 AM

Hipstreet Titan 2 7 Google Tablet ONLY $50 Plus Free Shipping @ Walmart Canada

The Hipstreet Titan 2 7” Google Certified Tablet is on clearance today from $54 to $49.92 @ Walmart plus free shipping. If you order it today, you should still have time have it in time for the holidays. This one may go quick.

Generally any tablet or electronic with Hipstreet in the title is not going to be the most powerful device you have ever owned. If you are looking for an inexpensive tablet to use the web without many bells and whistles this might be the perfect deal for you. Here is a few of the important specs.

  • 7” Touch Screen
  • 8 GB but expandable to 32 GB if you purchase an extra Micro SD card (not included)
  • Runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • Up to 1.2 GHz processor
  • Built in speaker, front facing camera and rechargeable battery
  • Google Play Store option
  • 10GB of free online cloud storage included

It’s not a terribly powerful device but it is expandable with a micro SD. Plus this device is Google certified so you’ll have app, movie and music options from the Google Play store.  If you just want to check e-mail, use Facebook and play a few games this device will do the trick. You can play a few movies on the go also if you do not mind a small screen, though I would recommend buying a SD card if that is what you have in mind.

This is the perfect device to hand to your kid. It’s inexpensive, has some game options and the ability to play a few movies if you expand the memory. While I do not advocate tons of screen time for kids, everything in moderation. Yeah OK, my kid has been potty training playing on a tablet- sometimes bribery works. You may want to make sure you have a good case also to keep that screen intact.

If you were dabbling with the idea of an e-reader but didn’t want to spend much, this is a good option also. You will not have the e-ink like you would in a Kobo or Kindle (which start at $65) but the Kindle and Kobo apps are available on the Google play store. I know some people do not like to read books on devices but for myself I find it extremely handy to have my books close. Especially that library book I was dying to read, it’s due already? (Our library lets us check out e-books, does yours?) I am much more likely to pick up a book for a quick 5 minutes if I always have it with me on my device.

Reviews are mixed on this device. Some people hate it others love it with the caveat of “for an inexpensive tablet.” One user has had one for a year now and it is still going strong for her kid to use.

Bought this for my daughter last year and honestly for the price it is awesome. You can download so many apps from Google play and we have not had any issues with it working. I do have to say the battery takes forever to charge, but small price to pay for such a cheap tablet.

Here is the price breakdown around the web for the same device.

  • $70 @ Future Shop
  • $70 @ Best Buy
  • $80 @ Staples
  • $100 @ The Source- but also includes a case
  • $120-$150 @ Amazon- depending on if you buy it from an outside seller or from Amazon directly

For the money you are paying, I would give this tablet a chance. Do not expect this table to run your small business, but as an entertainment device for really basic use this tablet will do the trick.

Expiry:  Will expire soon!

WalMart Canada: Hipstreet 7″ Intel-Windows 16GB Quad Core Tablet W7 | $170 Value Now $98

Posted by on November 29, 2014 at 7:48 AM

WalMart Canada: Hipstreet 7 Intel Windows 16GB Quad Core Tablet W7 | $170 Value Now $98

Attention, Bargainmoosers! Do you want to save big on a tablet this weekend? Well, WalMart is having a great deal on their Hipstreet 7″ Intel-Windows 16GB Quad Core Tablet W7, so you should check out this limited-time promotion before it’s too late! This tablet usually sells for $169.99 on, but you can now purchase this for $98! Another great incentive to take advantage of this deal is the fact that you`ll also get free shipping with your order!

This Hipstreet 7″ Intel-Windows 16GB Quad Core Tablet W7 has Windows 8.1 installed, and can provide you with plenty of different forms of entertainment! If you’re looking for a device to read books on, watch videos, play games, or just check your emails on, then you should really consider picking up this tablet. Click on the link above to see all of the features of this Hipstreet tablet.

Now I’d like to take this time to offer you all some advice regarding presents during the holidays. I usually shop for Christmas around October and November (and in some cases, even September). Unfortunately, I can sometimes be defeated by the anticipation of Christmas. For example, this year, I’ve already given everyone their presents early (much to their reluctance). Don’t do what I do, people! I ended up buying some extra gifts so I can still surprise my significant other with something on Christmas morning.

I’ve listed a snippet of a review of this Hipstreet 7″ Intel-Windows 16GB Quad Core Tablet W7 from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

This tablet is fast and multi tasking capable. The icons and overall looked soo small, but just had to change the overall in appearance from smallest to medium. Walla!! Got a clear, crisp picture.

Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Walmart Canada: 9″ Nobis Google Cert. Tablet with Case & Keyboard Only $68

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 11:42 AM

Walmart Canada: 9 Nobis Google Cert. Tablet with Case & Keyboard Only $68

Walmart Canada is selling entry level 9″ Nobis Google Certified Dual Core Android Tablets with keyboard and case for just $68! From what I can find, this tablet retailed for $99.99 US but I have found it (OOS) for up to $170 originally on American websites. On top of getting a tablet, case, and keyboard for under $70, you will also receive free shipping on your purchase.

This is a perfect setup if you are purchasing a tablet for your child. The 9″ Nobis has a large enough screen for their hands to play and it is Google certified so you can download a ton of free games and learning apps from the Google Play Store. It comes with:

  • Touch screen
  • 1.5GHZ Dual Core
  • 1GB Ram
  • 8GB Memory
  • Front-facing camera
  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • Built-in Wi-fi

That 8GB of memory is expandable up to 32GB through via the Micro SD card slot. My partner has a tablet with expandable memory and I think every tablet should come with this feature (hello Apple!). It is so easy and cheap to expand the memory on your tablet yourself.

As for accessories, you will receive an AC adapter, USB cable, and a matching case and keyboard. You can choose from five different colour schemes, all of which appear to be in stock right now.

I think this is a great gift for younger kids because the tablet is relatively inexpensive and it comes with all the basic needs like Wi-Fi, a camera, and access to games. On top of it, children often want accessories. This tablet already comes with a case to keep your child from damaging their new tablet and it comes with a keyboard that will make it easier for your child to learn typing skills. I like how you can choose your child’s favourite colour combination for an even more personalized gift. The expandable memory is my favourite feature as apps can take up a lot of memory so up to 32GB is the best feature.

This is one of Walmart Canada’s early Black Friday deals and I assume these will sell out quickly. Pick one or two up before they do.

This is by far the best online price in Canada for this model of Acer Iconia tablet. Elsewhere, I’ve spotted the Acer A1-830-1838 for $140 @ FactoryDirect, $180 @ The Source, $160 @ TigerDirect, $213 @ CDW, $177 @ OfficeMax and $178 @ Walmart. Walmart and Amazon are in price wars at the moment, so it’s great to see such a price difference there, and a super price from Amazon.

While this particular tablet is probably not quite going to be up to the same quality of an iPad Air, you have different expectation when you are paying only $100 for a tablet. For this kind of thing, I think it would be great for young teenagers as a Christmas gift, great for playing little games and watching movies, etc. When my nephews were 9 and 11, they each got a tablet from Santa for Christmas, something similar to the Acer above. They’re definitely not as easy to use as an iPad, but they were a great little gift.

If you wanted to buy a similar HP 7 Plus 7″ Android Tablet  from  WalMart today, it would cost you $168. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this similar HP 7 tablet from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

I bought this over 6 month ago and expected an OK kind of tablet. What I got was a excellent performing compact tablet that easily runs all my favourite apps.

Just $329 For Asus Transformer Signature Edition 32GB Tablet + 500GB Keyboard + Free Shipping @ Microsoft Store Canada!! (EXPIRED)

Just $329 For Asus Transformer Signature Edition 32GB Tablet + 500GB Keyboard + Free Shipping @ Microsoft Store Canada!! (EXPIRED)

November is usually synonymous with loads of tech deals and here’s another little hot offer to get you Moosers ready for Christmas: Microsoft Store is currently selling the Asus Transformer 10.1″ tablet for just $329. It’s a 2-in-1 PC that also comes with a 500GB HDD keyboard dock.

I am beyond jealous of this deal. If I hadn’t already gotten my hubby this exact tablet a year ago, I would have totally taken advantage of this mega deal from the Microsoft Store, especially since I bought his at full price and without the keyboard!

For just $329, however, you can currently get this tablet along with a detachable keyboard. The option of a keyboard is a particularly great one, especially for those times that you need to take notes (i.e. in class) but another major perk is that it add as much as 500 additional giga bytes on top of the already built-in 32 ones within the tablet for a total of 532GB. That’s particularly useful for all those of you that are looking to use a tablet for watching movies and TV shows.

Speaking of taking notes, it also comes with a free year of Office 365 Personal, which includes Words, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote!

Here are just some of the other noteworthy features:

  • 10.1″ LED HD screen
  • 2GB memory
  • 32-bit Windows 8.1
  • 2-in-1 PC
  • 2-cell battery life
  • Bluetooth integrated

Looking around, I found this exact tablet on sale for $388.99 (reg. $399) at Although Microsoft Store’s doesn’t have any reviews, on Amazon, this cool tablet has generated nearly 170 reviews with a general consensus of 3.9 stars out of 5. In fact, here’s one review that particularly stood out to me:

I’ve read TONS of reviews and I’ve seen people say that you shouldn’t expect it to function like a computer but so far that’s exactly what it does. It’s a small computer. I love it and I’m super glad I decided to spend the money on it. Well worth it.

Plus, with purchase of this tablet, you can also save 15% off select accessories like wireless mice, keyboards, webcams, and more. For those of you with an Xbox, remotes for either the Xbox One or Xbox 360 are also among these picks.

Best Buy Canada: $200 Off Kobo Arc 10HD 10.1″ 16GB – Now $200 (HOT!)

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 9:15 AM

Best Buy Canada: $200 Off Kobo Arc 10HD 10.1 16GB   Now $200 (HOT!)

A little earlier this morning, Ivan blogged about the PlayStation TV bundle, which is now on sale for $100 at Best Buy and while that’s a fantastic deal, I couldn’t resist telling you Moosers about another little deal I unearthed at both Best Buy. The Kobo Arc 10″ 16GB eReader is now $200 off and can be had for just $200 (reg. $400).

This deal is set to expire in a couple of days but given that this is a hot offer, there are high chances that it will go out of stock before then, especially since at the time of writing this post, there were only 24 tablets remaining at Best Buy and already sold out at Future Shop! It’s even currently sold out at Chapters Indigo, which just shows how popular this tablet is.

The Kobo Arc 16GB features a stunning 10.1″ screen with a 2560 x 1600 resolution, a sleek design, 2GB of RAM and a 1.8GHz quad-core processor. For its screen size and specs, this Kobo tablet is absolutely and the current price even more so. In fact, here’s a review I found:

For the price it’s hard to complain: what you’re getting in terms of processing power and the other basics is competitive with tablets costing twice as much. And it’s Android so you know you will be supported by a gazillion apps if you want them. Personally I bought this device primarily to read comics and graphic novels. It is pretty awesome for that purpose, able to display full pages at pretty much full size, with lots of contrast and saturated colours.

It also has wi-fi capabilities, which means that you can easily download and read books without the hassle of having to connect to a computer. Personally, I’ve had a little Sony eReader for ages now and while it’s great, I’m sure that it’s not nearly as amazing at Kobo’s Arc tablet. The resolution alone is worth paying the full price tag. With Christmas right around the corner, this would make a great gift either for yourself or anyone on your Christmas list!

As usual, shipping is also free as Best Buy ships all orders over $25 for free.
