TigerDirect Canada: Total Defense Internet Security Suite Software – Free After Rebate (+ S&T)

Posted by on December 17, 2012 at 7:30 PM

TigerDirect Canada: Total Defense Internet Security Suite Software   Free After Rebate (+ S&T)

This is a pretty interesting deal. Total Defense Internet Security Suite Software – 3 users is on sale for $69.98 at TigerDirect.ca. It qualifies for a rebate of $70 – thus making it free except for shipping and tax.

It is a mail-in-rebate that seems to come with the product. I don’t know much about the product itself, but a nearly free 3 user internet security program is a pretty good deal in my viewpoint. It does say that a subscription must be activated at time of rebate redemption. It looks like this software comes with a 1 year subscription… and I am guessing that is what must be activated. But… don’t quote me on that.

Other places I have found this product for around $50 – $80 – so not a bad deal.

The shipping was around $5.93 for shipping to me. There would also be the taxes – I’m not sure if the rebate will cover them – so most likely they too will be out of pocket.

Any Moosers know anything more about this product?

TigerDirect.ca: $220 Off Lenovo IdeaPad Core i5 Ultrabook (Pay $600) + More Deals!

Posted by on December 1, 2012 at 4:00 AM

TigerDirect.ca: $220 Off Lenovo IdeaPad Core i5 Ultrabook (Pay $600) + More Deals!

Fantastic ultrabook. Fantastic price. Stupid name for a sale. It’s Black Friday II.

The laptop was $619.99 but with the $220 discount, you only pay $599.99. This laptop is a great mid-range ultrabook, sporting a 3rd Gen Core i5 processor at 1.7GHz, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 750GB HDD, 24GB SSD and a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce 610M Video Card. A very respectable system for only $600.

Another thing this computer has that some people might not like, is Windows 8. I recently got a computer with Windows 8 and I was not looking forward to it. I actually had my Windows 7 disk ready to go when I got the laptop. But I turned it on just to give Windows 8 a try. After all, I am a big nerd and as such I should know all the technology I can. So I poked around a bit and, much to my surprise, I really like Windows 8. Go figure, eh? I think the reason I like it is because I am no longer practicing at being 133t. I’ve become boring in my old age. Soft and doughy. Now I play Angry Birds and look at “eCards” on Facebook. I don’t need much else than that so the Windows 8 interface works fine for me. If you are “the 133t HaxXxorZ” then you might not be a fan of the new interface but if you are truly 133t, you’ll find a way around it.

This sale is part of the painfully named Black Friday II sale. If you’re interested, here is the link to get the other deals. There are some great items here.

TigerDirect.ca: Window 8 Launch Event – Laptops, Desktops, Software and More!

Posted by on October 27, 2012 at 4:00 AM

TigerDirect.ca: Window 8 Launch Event   Laptops, Desktops, Software and More!

So Windows 8 came out last yesterday and a lot of retailers, Tiger Direct Canada among them, are quite excited. They’ve decided to throw a party but instead of bringing food, they are bringing deals.

There are some free shipping deals as well as some product deals. I’ll give you a few product deals and then I’ll fill you in on the free shipping.

Many of these require coupon codes, make sure you enter them before you hit buy!

You don’t generally see any major sales on Operating Systems. These are likely as much of a discount as you will see for quite a while. They also have sales on Windows 7 if you aren’t into the Windows 8 thing. In it’s current iterations. Windows 8 holds no appeal for me personally but there are certainly many people and use cases who are going to want to jump on ir. One more thing to note is that this is OEM software. This is meant to be sold to someone who is building a computer. An Original Equipment Manufacturer, as it were. This means you cannot use it to upgrade, you cannot get the free phone support Microsoft offers with their retail versions and the packaging is very minimal.

I mentioned laptops and desktops earlier. There aren’t any huge sales on these items, per se, but they are all shipping for free and, from the look of things, they have a decent stock of them so there shouldn’t be any delays.

TigerDirect: CEO’s Top 15 Picks – Laptops, Tablets, Components and more!

Posted by on October 21, 2012 at 5:00 AM

TigerDirect: CEOs Top 15 Picks   Laptops, Tablets, Components and more!

TigerDirect’s CEO has HAND PICKED these deals just for you, the consuming public. He slaved over a hot computer for days to bring these deals to you. Blood spilled from his body in order to find these products and lower their prices this much!

Actually, I suspect that didn’t happen. David Sprosty is a busy guy so he likely had someone else do it for him. Or maybe he did it himself, who am I to speak for him?

Regardless of who picked them, they picked some great deals. Here are a few of them.

There is one other deal I want to mention but it isn’t really part of this sale.. But it kind of is. They had an OCZ 120GB SSD but the deal has already expired. Right now it is actually still on sale but not as much. It is normally $199.99 but you can save $115.02 which brings the price down to a very nice $84.97!

There may actually be an ulterior motive when it comes to this specific sale. TigerDirect has had some bad CEO luck as of late. Their former CEO was fired for some shady dealings as were his brothers. This CEO might be putting himself on this sale so as to endear himself to the public. If he keeps on bringing good deals like this to the table, he is well on his way to a solid public image!

TigerDirect.ca: Choose Your own Deal! Customer Appreciation Week!

Before it’s a deal, it’s a pre-deal! TigerDirect Canada is doing something cool for customer appreciation week. Go democracy!

Like I said, this isn’t really sale but more of an opportunity for a sale. TigerDirect Canada is offering a chance for you to choose the deals for their customer appreciation week which starts on 21st October 2012.

They have seven categories set up from computers to home entertainment and even some components and you have to vote on which one you’d rather have a deal on. I want to see you get the deals on whatever your little heart desires so get over there and do some voting.

Now I know it’s taboo to talk about who you’re voting for but how about you tell me. I won’t tell anyone else, I promise. Just drop a little comment down below… You know, between me and you.

Oh, and once the deals are announced, be sure to make your way back here to find out what they are!

TigerDirect.ca: Staff Pick Sale on PCs and Accessories

Posted by on October 16, 2012 at 5:00 AM

TigerDirect.ca: Staff Pick Sale on PCs and Accessories

The staff at Tiger Direct Canada is putting some of their favorite products on sale for your purchasing pleasure!

There are some good deals here and some products that aren’t on sale at all. The prices might be ok but they are just the regular every day price as far as I can tell. Here are some of the products that are ACTUALLY on sale.

The deals on this one are  a bit scattered so make sure that you verify there is some sort of discount. I hate when companies do this because I know they are just hoping that some hapless consumer assumes they are getting a good deal without doing the research. Another thing to watch out for is coupon codes. A few of these deals require that you enter a coupon code to get the discount.

Regardless, there are some good deals here and I want to point you specifically to the Drobo. I love Drobos. Essentially they are a RAID array in a box. What that means is that anything you put on it is redundant. For example, if you put two 1TB drives in your Drobo, you will have 1TB of storage space. Everything you put on one drive will go to the other. If you have three 1TB drives in there you get 1.5TB of space and everything is duplicated. This means that if you loose a drive, you just pull it out and put a new one back in. All the data from the other drives copies to the new one. The drives are hot swappable too so you just pull old drives and slam new ones in.

TigerDirect Canada Rockin Refurbs: Up to 60% Off Laptops, Tablets & More!

Posted by on October 12, 2012 at 11:00 AM

TigerDirect Canada Rockin Refurbs: Up to 60% Off Laptops, Tablets & More!

TigerDirect Canada has a deal made up of nothing but refurbished awesome!

There are some really cool deals here and some that are really, really weird. I’ll give you some of the cool ones and we’ll talk about the weird ones later.

Lots of great deals here, and some good variety too. It seems as though a lot of these refurb sellers don’t have a very robust stock so it’s refreshing to be given options. Of course there are usually plenty of laptops, so that isn’t surprising, but they have two GPS units, three tablets and two routers. I love the choices!

On to the weird stuff. They have, for some reason, a Pentium 4 desktop for $80. I have no idea who they are aiming these at other than the people who need a cheap file server or something. Maybe people looking to make their own router. They also have a NetGear PowerLine adapter for $20. How random is that? I understand that someone somewhere might be looking for some old PowerLine 85Mbps networking gear, but how odd to put it on the front page of a sale? I’m sure someone is going to see this and be really excited it’s there, but I bet that person will be the only one.

TigerDirect.ca: September Black Friday Sale – up to 80% off Electronics and Computers

Posted by on September 29, 2012 at 1:00 PM

TigerDirect.ca: September Black Friday Sale   up to 80% off Electronics and Computers

It isn’t black Friday but it is a Friday so I guess that counts. Actually it’s Saturday now, but that doesn’t matter, it’s Friday all weekend long at Tiger Direct Canada!

This is another mixed bag sale so here are a few good deals for you to feast your eyes upon:

There are a lot of good deals here and they have a good range of products that should appeal to everyone. If you are a PC builder, you can find something in this sale. If you can be bothered to build your own and just want to pick up a new computer, you can find it here. If you aren’t even looking for a computer but you just need some gadgety goodness, you can find it here.

I think it’s a good thing that companies put on these sales all the time but I don’t get why they need a reason. I understand if it’s a season. Christmas sale, back-to-school sale, easter sale. I get that. A September black Friday sale, though? They’re just throwing words together now! The ones that really make me wonder are the signs in front of chain stores in the mall.  They have amazing ad campaign that consist of a navy blue piece of cardboard with short shorts all over it and emblazoned across it is the Magna Carta of advertising… “The Short Shorts Sale!” *sigh* It makes me wonder if they actually had a bunch of marketing execs sitting around a table for weeks trying to figure out how we can sell more one inch long skirts to six year olds this summer.

But you know what, all my complaining aside, if I wanted a smokin’ hot deal on some smokin’ hot short shorts this summer, I’d know where to go. So maybe I should just calm down and pretend that these companies don’t try to advertise at me and instead they are all sending me formally written letters expounding upon the benefits of their stellar sales.

What do you think? Are you sick of phony reasons to have sales and ad campaigns that don’t make any sense? Let me know in the comments. BargainMoose loves you!

TigerDirect.ca End of Month Clearance Sale: Hard Drives, PCs & TVs up to 57% Off

TigerDirect.ca End of Month Clearance Sale: Hard Drives, PCs & TVs up to 57% Off

TigerDirect Canada is having a clearance sale to… I dunno… make room in their online store? Regardless of the reason, there are some great deals here so go on, start buying stuff! You know you wanna!

The deals here are quite varied, ranging from RAM to TVs to Hard Drives to full systems. Here are a few of the deals you can get:

They’re calling this an End of the Month sale, so I’m going to say that this sale goes until the end of the month, but there are some items that have their own expiry date. Make sure if you’re eyeing something and aren’t sure if you’re going to get it, that you check the expiry date. It could go back to regular price early.

This really is a mixed bag of products. You can get a little of everything. I did notice that they seem to have a lot of lower-end products in this sale. I’m not sure why that is, but it’s not a bad thing. I think there is a place for low-end products in everyone’s budget.

There is a house I drive by on my way home from work and whoever owns it has a little shed/workshop out front with a TV in it. I only know this because the shed has a window in it and I can see him watching CBC news as I drive by. I always wonder if he is worried that someone is going to break in and steal it, or that during the winter (yes, he is out there in the winter, this shed has a chimney!) the cold will damage it. This is the kind of person who lower-end products are for. If someone breaks in and steals his Haier branded TV or it gets damaged from an errant hammer, it isn’t a huge deal because it only cost $190. Now I know that $200 isn’t insignificant for a lot of people, but if you must have a TV in your shed, you might as well have a $200 model instead of a $500 model.

TigerDirect.ca: Visa Gift Card + FREE Windows 8 upgrade With Lenovo Laptops

TigerDirect.ca: Visa Gift Card + FREE Windows 8 upgrade With Lenovo Laptops

TigerDirect Canada has a triple deal for you this labour day weekend! Laptops and gift cards and upgrades, oh my!

This deal is available on a bunch of Lenovo laptops. A lot of them are on sale, some of them are not. These are some of the sales:

I love these “free money” deals. Getting a gift card for the store you are purchasing the product from is fine but not as useful as a Visa (Or MasterCard or AMEX or Diners Club, we don’t take sides here at Bargainmoose) gift card. You can use these cards almost anywhere that Visa is accepted.  My dad gets these for me and my wife for birthdays and generally there is one taped to another one of our Christmas gifts. I absolutely love getting them because, honestly, sometimes it’s hard to think of something you want or need. I like being able to buy something for myself whenever I want.

On top of the Visa gift cards, which I clearly like, you get a free upgrade to Windows 8 and some good laptop deals. I’ve been noticing a lot of these economy laptops. Things like the $300 laptop I listed up there. These are an interesting subset of laptops. The marketing is such that the company wants us, the buying public, to think of a laptop as one an essential appliance. You buy a house and with it you have to get a fridge, a stove, a microwave and a laptop. Now that might seem absurd and, truthfully,it is but at prices like these, it kind of makes sense. Even if you have a desktop, why not have a laptop kicking around?

I’m of the opinion that, at this price, buying a laptop as a guest computer isn’t a bad idea. I know there have been times that I’ve been visiting someone without my computer and really wished I had it while we watched a movie or BBQ’d. It’d be nice to whip out their guest computer. All that being said, some people don’t have the money for their own laptop, let alone a guest laptop. At $300, a laptop becomes much more feasible.

Window 8 Pro upgrade for $14.99

Posted by on August 3, 2012 at 5:00 PM

Window 8 Pro upgrade for $14.99

Need a computer now but don’t want to break the bank to upgrade later? Bargainmoose has got the hookups.

Microsoft is really running after Apple lately and this offer is just one of the ways they are doing it. If you buy a qualifying PC between 2nd, June 2012 and 31st, January 2013, you can get a super cheap upgrade to Windows 8. You should read through their Program Information and their FAQ just to make sure you get the deal. If you want to make it real safe though, buy a PC directly through the Microsoft upgrade offer on a computer store website. That way you make sure the products you are looking at are eligible.

Lucky for you we have one of those links for you right here. Tiger Direct has a section with all the eligible products.

I’m not going to lie to you beautiful people. Microsoft and I haven’t seen eye-to-eye for quite a while. I can, however, admit it when they come out with a product that isn’t trash. Windows 7 is certainly not trash. That being said, there is always a time to move on. In all honesty, based on what I’ve seen, I probably wont upgrade my wife’s computer to Windows 8.

You know what though? I sit atop my elitist nerd tower and cast judgement upon the non-elitist nerds. My opinion and moral hang-ups aren’t yours so maybe you really want Windows 8 and that’s fine. If you do, seriously, get all up on this deal.
