Amazon Canada: Shameless Seasons 1 & 2 Only $20 (Was $63)

Posted by on February 19, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Shameless Seasons 1 & 2 Only $20 (Was $63)

For only $19.99, you can get a Blu-Ray copy of seasons one and two of Shameless. The regular price for this item is $62.48.

I’m excited to blog this deal, as although I can’t get it because I don’t have anything to play Blu-Rays on, I absolutely love this show. If you’ve never seen it, now is your chance to get in a Shameless marathon and pick up the first two seasons very inexpensively.

Shameless is a show that was first started in the U.K., and I believe it is still going there. It did so well they made a U.S. version, which is quite behind the U.K. version. The Gallaghers are a family living in the hood in Chicago with addict parents and six kids. The oldest siblings are doing their best to raise and feed the younger ones, all the while dealing with all of the crap that goes on around addiction, poverty and growing up. It sounds like a sad show, but it is so funny that I guess you’d call it dark humour.

It has some really great actors/actresses in it like William H. Macy and Joan Cusack, but you’ll really love the lesser-know characters. My favourite is Lip, who is really cute in a disheveled sort of way.

Shipping won’t be free unless you spend another $5, so you might as well pick yourself out something else nice.

The Source Canada: Refurbished TV Sale

Posted by on January 20, 2014 at 11:00 PM

The Source Canada: Refurbished TV Sale

If you are looking for a new television at a good price I really encourage you to check out The Source’s refurbished TV sale. The TVs come with full product warranty and whatever ‘issues’ they had have been fixed.

There are also some DVD players and portable media players in this sale as well.

I found this fantastic deal on a SAMSUNG LN40E550F7F 40″ LCD TV – REFURBISHED that was originally $749.99 and is now only $349.96. You get 40″ of full 1080p high-definition picture quality for only $350! This is a gem of a deal and is only available online currently.

Another really great deal is another Samsung actually, but this time a Plasma screen instead of an LCD screen. This SAMSUNG 43-INCH 440 PLASMA HDTV – REFURBISHED was $649.99 and is now $319.96. This is a 720p HD television so it is not quite full-HD but it does provide a really nice crisp picture.

If you need something to play all those wonderful movies then pick up the TOSHIBA BDX3400 BLU-RAY AND ONLINE MEDIA PLAYER – REFURBISHED that was $109.99 and is now $64.98.

Hurry, quantities are limited!

You can get free shipping to your local store or pay around $5 for home delivery.

The Source Canada: Free Shipping On 37+ TVs

The Source Canada is offering free shipping to your home on all TVs over 37″ in size (excluding the northern regions of Canada).

The Toshiba 39-Inch 120 Hz 1080p LED HDTV is on sale from $564.99 down to $429.99. It is a good size TV from a respected brand and features:

  • 39″ LED screen
  • 1080p resolution
  • ClearScan 120Hz refresh rate
  • Three HDMI inputs
  • 5ms response time

I found the same TV on sale for pretty much the same price at Amazon.ca, but it was out of stock. It is still in stock at The Source and now qualifies for free shipping as well.

This LG 42″ 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV is on sale for $499.99 down from $649.99. I did find this model on sale for a tiny bit cheaper at a couple other places, but they were both completely sold out. Again, The Source has this TV in stock at a very good price and with free shipping.

(Expiry: Both TV deals expire the 9th, October 2013. Free shipping expiry is unknown.)

Amazon Canada: Homicide: Life On The Street Complete Series Only $60 (Was $170)

Posted by on September 19, 2013 at 2:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Homicide: Life On The Street Complete Series Only $60 (Was $170)

If you are looking for an awesome deal on a no-holds barred show, then Amazon has a treat for you. Get Homicide: Life On The Street, the complete series for only $59.99, was $169.99.

This deal is only available today, so you want to snap it up quickly. There are 35 discs included in this set for seven seasons, which means almost 100 hours of viewing! This one will keep you busy over the long winter months.

This show is highly rated and it is a #1 boxset seller at Amazon. I’ve never seen it, but am always looking for the next great show to watch. It has won numerous awards, including Emmys and has a number of great actors.

One reviewer who loves the show said:

Homicide: Life on the Street is a gritty, no-holds-barred take on the day-to-day interactions of members of the Baltimore Police Homicide Unit. The officers involved in the unit (for the first 4 seasons at the very least) are generally not the typical “beautiful people” that too often populate most TV dramas. The strength of the series is that the characters are real people. They have good days and bad, they make mistakes and have triumphs, and they live, breathe, and sometimes die. The series strikes a good balance between focusing on the character interaction and focusing on the plot the players are moving through. The intensity of being in “the Box” (the interrogation room) is phenomenal. You feel like you are right there sometimes, trying to break the criminal sitting across from the detectives.

Shipping is free for this item.

Amazon Canada: Blu Ray TV & Movies Sale

Amazon Canada is having a blu-ray sale with excellent deals on TV collections and movies. You can view the full sale through the link below or peruse my husband’s ‘best of’ list.

My husband actually sent me this deal (thanks Daniel) because he is a huge movie fan and always on the lookout for great deals to add to his collection. The following is what he considered the best of this sale:

There are some great deals on complete series in this sale as highlighted above. Do note that prices could fluctuate or change at anytime, Amazon has a habit of doing that. My favourite of the above deals has got to be the Harry Potter deal, you are essentially paying $10 a film for the blu-ray version. Just think of all the great extras you get too.

Dell Canada: $550 Off LG 55″ Full HD LED TV – Now $800

Posted by on July 31, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Dell Canada: $550 Off LG 55 Full HD LED TV   Now $800

Dell Canada is offering $550 off a 55 inch LG LS5600 Full HD 1080p, 120Hz LED TV to turn your living room into the ultimate home entertainment center. Originally $1,349.99, it is on sale for $799.99 with free shipping.

I’m not sure what I can tell you about this TV. It has a huge 55″ screen and full 1080p HD for all those blu ray movies you own. It is 2D (not 3D), but for the price I think this is a fantastic buy. I found the same model in a smaller size (47″) for only $100 cheaper on clearance. For that extra $100 you are getting 8″ more of screen, so I think that is pretty reasonable.

This TV doesn’t really have many bells and whistles. It does have its own media center built in, but that is about it for the special features. It specializes in being an affordable giant HDTV made by a dependable brand.

Enjoy free shipping on all your Dell orders.

TV features:

  • flat screen
  • built in DVD player
  • 16:09 aspect ratio

I’m not sure what the original price was but this is their Canada Day weekend deal and the price looks pretty good to me! Perfect as an affordable TV, a secondary TV, a college dorm TV, or whatever you need a TV for. I really like the space and cable saving feature of having the DVD player built into the TV itself.

This TV is wall mount ready and according to an answer in the questions area, this Bestmounts TV Wall Mount (BEST- 42) for $29.98 will work perfectly for this TV and it is a great price too.

Amazon is having a Canada Day sale with movies and TV shows on sale at up to 80% off.

Whether you have a Blu-Ray or DVD player, Amazon has some great deals on your favourite movies and shows.

In honour of James Gandolfini, the Sopranos complete series is a great one to get. Watch Tony Soprano take down his foes with ease. If you haven’t ever watched the Sopranos, you have no idea the talent you are missing. Even a real convicted mobster professed on a radio show I listened to that Tony Soprano was so true to life, he could have been real. Was $399.99, now $238.99.

Canadian movies and shows are on sale with up to 52% off. Check out great Canadian favourites like Being Erica, Caillou, Corner Gas and Heartland.

On Blu-Ray I highly recommend Life of Pi. I recently saw this amazing movie that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Filmed graphically and brilliantly, you’ll want to see this on the biggest screen you can. Was $49.99, now $14.99.

Shipping is free on orders over $25.

Amazon Canada: Save $150 on a Panasonic Viera 42 1080p LED TV (Pay only $650)

On top of the fact that you’re getting a great TV, you’re also getting a great deal and FREE shipping! Amazon Canada makes dreams come true!

I did some looking around and most places are selling it for about $800, although I didn’t see a lot of places selling it online in Canada. The reviews from Amazon.com give it a 4/5 stars and there are a lot of people saying a lot of good stuff about the TV. Here is one I liked called “Exceeded expectations” by C. Reach

Really great TV. Perfect size for my office/studio. Picture quality is excellent. I calibrated the tv using settings I found with a quick google search. Sound is ok, but as with most flat screens it lacks a really impressive on board audio set up. Xbox 360 games look incredible. I’ve been playing Skyrim and Battlefield 3 and am blown away by the picture. I fired up amazon prime (through Viera Cast) and watched Troll Hunter in HD. Again, beautiful picture (and awesome low budget Norwegian movie).

As this is sold via Amazon you get free shipping in Canada.

Amazon Canada: Huge Fall Deals up to 65% Off TV Shows

Amazon Canada: Huge Fall Deals up to 65% Off TV Shows

Amazon Canada has a lot of great deals happening right now and here is another one.  They have a Fall Sale on right now with TV shows up to 65% off the regular prices.

I am someone that likes to watch an entire TV series over and over again especially in the colder months.  There is nothing worse than wanting to curl up on the couch and relax with a great show and there is nothing on.  I like re-watching shows because most of the time I forget what happened anyways.

One of my favorite series is included with these fall deals.  Breaking Bad is such a great show and it was priced at $26.99 and is now just $15.99 for the first season. If you have not yet had a chance to watch this show, it is definitely worth watching.

Along with some popular TV shows, they also have some great miniseries, reality TV shows and educational DVDs like the Blue Planet series.  There is also a great mixture of old and new series to choose from.

Amazon Canada offers free shipping for most orders $25 or more which is a very low minimum compared to most places.

TigerDirect Canada: Seiki 42″ Class LED HDTV – Now $399.97 (Was $499.97)

TigerDirect Canada: Seiki 42 Class LED HDTV   Now $399.97 (Was $499.97)

If you are on a budget and really want a new flat screen TV, check out this deal at TigerDirect Canada. Get a Seiki 42″ Class LED HDTV for only $399.97 after discount and mail-in rebate.

You will pay $449.97 up front, but after you send in the $50 mail-in rebate the TV will have just cost you $399.97 + tax. You will also have to pay for shipping. I priced shipping out to the wilds of Alberta and it was just under $39 for me. That isn’t bad for a TV that weighs around 45 lbs. However, surely it will be cheaper to the East.

There are a couple reviews of this product so far:

This TV is perfect. I love it. The price is good. The shape is good, thin and sharp. The picture is good, the sound is good. With this price, that’s unbeatable. I watch it today for couple hours. No problem.

 

Great product. As always I’m very satisfied with the products and service from here. Awesome picture quality after a few adjustments in the picture interface.

They both give the TV a 5/5 star rating.

Amazon Canada: Complete First Season of Game of Thrones Blu ray 50% Off

Amazon Canada has a great deal on a very popular series right now.  Get the complete first season of Game of Thornes on Blu-ray for just $49.99 which is 50% off the regular price.

This is one of those shows that everyone has been telling me to watch but I just haven’t got around to it.  I keep hearing what a great show it is so this deal got my interest. This first season was priced at $99.99 but is now just $49.99 for a limited time only.

Here are a couple of  reviews for those of you like me that have not yet seen this series.

Watched the first season to catch up to the second season starting recently… This is such a great show and I haven’t even read the books yet which I will be doing now for sure!

The Game of Throne is fabulous. I am reading the books and I think the actors are perfect for their roles. Everything about this show is so wonderfully done. Each episode leaves you wanting, no needing to see the next. High recommended!

I really enjoy the medieval genre and this is right up there with Dune…Can’t wait until year two can be purchased.

I have also heard that the books are excellent and I am waiting on a great deal for these as well.  If you are not in a rush to get your order, use the super saver shipping for free shipping.  I do this every time and I have always got my orders within the week even if it has stated a longer delivery time.

Thanks to bargainmooser Crafty501 on the hot deals forum for letting us know about this deal!

Pricematters Canada: Toshiba 19 LED TV $99 (Reg. $189.99)

Pricematters Canada has a really good deal on a smaller flat screen TV. Get a Toshiba 19″ LED TV for only $99 (Reg. $189.99). This is a perfect size TV for a dorm room or a spare bedroom.

I have never owned a Toshiba TV, however, in the past I have owned Toshiba Laptops. They were pretty sturdy units, mine lasted for 5 years!

The features of this TV are:

  • 720p Resolution
  • Refresh Rate of 60Hz
  • Digital Noise Reduction
  • Invisible Speaker System
  • 2 HDMI Ports
  • 1 PC Input Port
  • 1 USB Connection
  • Sleep Timer

I looked up this exact TV on Toshiba.ca’s website to price compare. The TV is listed at $189.99 still on their website. I think this is a really good deal, especially because the Pricematters Canada deal is not refurbished, but brand new with 1 year warranty.

Shipping is a very reasonable $15.
