(71% off) Skylanders Trap Team Starter Packs now $20 @ Best Buy Canada!

Posted by on September 4, 2015 at 9:00 AM

(71% off) Skylanders Trap Team Starter Packs now $20 @ Best Buy Canada!

Do you have some little gamers in your household? The Skylanders Starter Packs always seemed so expensive to me, but right now has Skylanders Trap Team Starter Packs at a reasonable price. This Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack would normally cost you $69.99, but right now you can pay just $19.99! That is a discount of 71%, and there is no telling how long stocks of this offer will last.

I have some amazing news. This Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack is available for all gaming systems for this price. Usually you can only find the PS3 or XBOX 360 version discounted like this, but right now you can enjoy this game for any system. So whether you have a Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox one, you can enjoy the revels of the Skylanders. The only drawback is for the Wii owners – there is no online stock for the Wii or Wii U – you’d have to check the in-store stock availability on that one.

*HOT* Nintendo Wii Kids’ Games Only 96¢ Each @ The Source

Posted by on August 31, 2015 at 12:47 PM

*HOT* Nintendo Wii Kids Games Only 96¢ Each @ The Source

I am all for deals so fantastic you have to buy them even if you never even knew the item existed. Today, I have two Nintendo Wii games that will cost you only 96¢ each! I highly recommend purchasing both as orders of $1 or more qualify for free standard shipping when you use coupon code TS499. Make sure to select standard shipping (not express) at checkout. Now, Academy of Champions: Soccer – Wii Standard Edition and Death Jr.: Root of Evil – Wii are the two games on sale for 96¢ each.

Academy of Champions: Soccer may be the real gem in this sale as it currently retails for $19.16 at Amazon Canada. Death Jr.: Root of Evil is still a nice buy as it currently costs $5 + $3.98 shipping in the Amazon Marketplace. As with most these 96 cent deals at The Source, I doubt these games will last very long. Read the rest of this entry »

July 6 Xbox One LEGO Marvel Super Heroes & LEGO Hobbit Was $20 | Now $15

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 1:00 PM Xbox One LEGO Marvel Super Heroes & LEGO Hobbit Was $20 | Now $15

We are all big fans of LEGO, and there are few things better than making your childhood game come alive on the television screen. Kids love LEGO movies, and they enjoy LEGO video games as well: small kids and big kids alike. Right now, Amazon Canada has discounted LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for Xbox One from $19.99 down to $14.99. I am excited about your second option for the Xbox One: LEGO The Hobbit. I adore that trilogy of movies and this game is now on sale from $19.99 down to $14.99 as well. Pick up both games and receive free shipping as shipping is free on $25 or more.

Here is a thorough price comparison for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on the Xbox One:

  • $19.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $19.99 @ EB Games Canada
  • $39.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $19.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $44.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

The game is also the SAME price for the PS4 version. I checked out the PS4 version while price comparing and it cost the same as the Xbox One version at Toys R Us, EB Games, Best Buy Canada, and more. It is well worth purchasing if you own a PS4.

Next, I conducted a price comparison for LEGO The Hobbit for the Xbox One. The game is $19.97 at Best Buy Canada and $19.99 at Toys R Us Canada. EB Games no longer has the new version in stock, but they charge $14.99 for the previously played version (which is also out of stock). Nowhere else could I find this game for less than that $20 range.

Both games are a lot of fun for you and your kids. You get to solve puzzles, build stuff, and be your favourite hero from each universe. While I love the Marvel superhero stuff, I would buy The Hobbit version myself. I love the world that Tolkien created and I would love to explore it with my LEGO men. Thorin is all mine.

As with most Amazon Canada deals, we have no idea how long this one will last. In the past, good deals tend to go quickly (sometimes in hours), thus I always encourage Moosers to not wait if they see something they like.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack (All Game Systems!) Was $60 | Now $20 (FS @ $25) @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 30, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack (All Game Systems!) Was $60 | Now $20 (FS @ $25) @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada has the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter on sale across all gaming systems. This starter pack was $60 but is now only $19.99, the lowest price we have seen this set yet!

The Disney Infinity set is so incredibly cool. I really like this new trend of buying figurines that unlock special powers and more characters across a variety of games. Right now, you can grab a Marvel starter pack at a fraction of the cost to add to your toy box universe. This is the 2.0 version, not the 3.0 version that is newer on the market, but this set is still full of many hours of game play. This set is also expandable with many additional characters available separately. Your set will include the following characters.

  • Thor
  • Ironman
  • Black Widow

You will also receive the following other items in your starter pack:

  • Infinity Marvel Super Heroes 2.0 Game
  • The Avengers play set piece
  • Infinity Compatible Base
  • Toy Box Game disc

This game is available for $74.96 across all game systems at Toys R Us Canada only sells this for Xbox 360 retailing at $74.99. EB Games Canada only has this available for PS4 at $74.99.

At, each gaming system has a different price. Depending on your gaming system, you can save quite a bundle:

  • Nintendo Wii U- $19.99
  • PlayStation 4- $19.99
  • PlayStation 3 $49.99
  • Xbox 360- $69.95
  • Xbox One- $39.99

You can see that Amazon Canada has matched Best Buy Canada’s price on two select gaming systems, but not on all. Either way you are getting a stellar deal that is half of what we have seen it priced previously.

Over on Amazon Canada people who bought the game mention that this set is ideal for younger children. The happiest customers have children who are age 3-7, but they also mention repeatedly this is fun for the entire family. The reviews on Best Buy Canada are mixed, and all straight to the point.

New heroes and new worlds add to the original adventure and kids love it!

Shipping is free if you spend $25, and this game is close all on its own. If you order this game alone, then your shipping costs is $4.99 for a grand total of $24.98. You can add this small filler, the Gud Orange Petalooza Body Lotion which is a Burt’s Bees Brand lotion selling for $5.28. That brings your order to a total of $25.27 and your order will ship free. For twenty-nine cents, I would pick up the lotion or an alternative small filler that is as close to $5.01 as possible.

Pre-order games

I tend to only buy video games once they have been officially released but a couple of days ago, I pre-ordered Batman: Arkham Knight as a Father’s Day gift for my hubby. The limited edition is currently sold out and on backorder anyways because of a production issue but you can pre-order the game for either PS4 or Xbox One for $69.99.

Very often, game publishers throw in bonuses for those who pre-order games and in fact, the Batman one currently even comes with the Waynetech booster pack, which includes Harley Quinn as a fully playable character. This game comes out June 23rd, so if you have been wanting to play it, I would definitely get it now for the bonus and the 2o% discount if you get another game. Here are other top choices that you could pre-order now:

The links here all point towards Best Buy but you can get all of these at Amazon if you prefer to shop there by searching for the appropriate title at the top of any Amazon page.

Click here to get Grand Theft Auto V on PC @ now

  • Coupon Code: GRAB25-PERCNT-OFFNOW
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 19th June 2015 @ 1pm EST

I had the opportunity of playing this game when it first came out on PS3 (and subsequently on the PS4) and I must tell you that it’s definitely worth playing! It’s very well made and the missions will keep you on your toes as you navigate through the vast cities. The story lines of the three characters, Michael, Trevor and Franklin, are also intriguing as the game makes you wonder how these characters, from very different backgrounds, will come together in the end.

Reviews for this game have been pretty spectacular across the board. Here’s one that gave it a 100 score on Greenman Gaming’s site:

GTA V is one of the first games of 2015, this is one of the best games to come out so far its graphics are fantastic and excellent gameplay recommend it 100% because it is a game for fun and it is not history, terror, etc, this game can be played with friends and making different kinds of missions I hope you buy and enjoy this wonderful game.

Everywhere else, the PC version of this page is $69.99 such as at Best Buy or EB Games. has it for $69.95. Admittedly, these come in DVD form, which means that you would receive an actual CD but since these are quickly becoming obsolete, you might as well get the truly PC version with Greenman Gaming. Not only will you save money but you will also immediately receive your activation key via e-mail, which means that you can play right away as well instead of waiting for your game to arrive in the mail.

For more Greenman Gaming coupon codes, be sure to keep an eye on the Bargainmoose forum. The one above can actually be used on other games as well but keep in mind that it may not work on all. It’s worth a try though if there’s another game that you have been eyeing for a while.

June 14 Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre-Order Video Games!

Posted by on June 14, 2015 at 8:00 AM Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre Order Video Games!

It’s not very often that releases generic promo codes which can be used on a selection of items on their site. That’s why when I found this deal, I was quite excited to see it. There are two new promo codes which can be used for a discount if you are pre-ordering video games there. Pre-order two video games and get a 20% discount, or pre-order three or more games and get a 30% discount on your order!

Click here to use the promo codes online now

  • Promo code: E3SAVE20
  • Discount: 20% off 2 pre-order video games
  • Promo code: E3SAVE30
  • Discount: 30% off 3 or more pre-order video games
  • Expires: 18th June 2015

There are a couple of terms and conditions which you might want to take note of:

  • You can only buy two copies of any one game.
  • Excludes: Disney Infinity, Limited, Gold or Collector’s editions, LEGO Dimensions, Skylanders, consoles, accessories.

What’s even sweeter about this deal is the Amazon pre-order price guarantee. It simply states:

Our Pre-order Price Guarantee covers one or more item(s) in this order. If the price decreases between the time you place your order and the end of the day of the release date, you’ll receive the lowest price.

This means that if there’s a game you are interested in buying, you don’t have to worry about any price fluctuations on Amazon. If the video game drops in price on its release date, you will only pay the lower price for your purchase. And as most of these games are brand new, they’re all going to be over the $25 free shipping minimum threshold too.

Some people follow certain video games and are huge fans, and want to have the brand new edition on its release date to start playing right away. I’m not like that, but I’ve known a few gamers who are. There are a couple of popular series in here which people will be interested in. Some examples of the upcoming releases:

The release dates on these vary, with many not actually being released until quarter 4, just in time for Christmas. If you or someone in your family MUST have select titles on release day, this is the perfect time to buy.

Best Buy Canada: Playstation TV Bundle | Was $100 Now $50 **BUMP**

Posted by on June 12, 2015 at 7:42 AM

Best Buy Canada: Playstation TV Bundle | Was $100 Now $50 **BUMP**

**We are bumping this today as the price has gone down another $50! When Ivan wrote this in November, Best Buy had reduced the price from $140 to $100 and it is now reduced from $100 down to $50!**

Good morning, my fellow gamers! Today’s deal at Best Buy is for a Playstation TV Bundle, which includes a DUALSHOCK 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, and a voucher that you could use to download The LEGO Movie Videogame. This bundle normally sells for $139.99, but you can now purchase all of this for $49.99! It’s a surprising deal, since the Playstation TV was just released fairly recently! You’ll also qualify for free shipping, which is always a nice bonus!

This Playstation TV Bundle can be a great gift for the holidays. You can play hundreds of games on it, since you could download many PS One and PSP classics. Trust me – Crash Bandicoot: Warped and Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night are still awesome games to play! It’s also compatible with most PS Vita game cards, so you could play your Vita games on the big screen!

It’s also compatible with the new Playstation Now service, so you could stream many great PS3 games with this Playstation TV. Finally, you could also play your PS4 games with this device – all you need is a PS4 controller, and you can wirelessly connect to the PS4 system in your home and play your games on another TV! Now that’s cool, and makes this device great for those that already have a PS4 system.

What makes this device interesting is the ability to download, rent, or stream movies, TV Shows, and music. It’s a versatile product that many people will have their eyes on during the holiday season!

It’s currently being sold at retail locations like Toys R Us for $99.99. Listed below is a snippet of a review of the Playstation TV from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

It’s a complete package for the casual gamer like me.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 8:02 AM

Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

If anyone out there doesn’t yet have a Nintendo Wii and you’re looking for something to entertain the kids, then consider buying this refurbished model from EB Games Canada. Coming in at only $49.99, the refurbished Nintendo Wii can be yours, with free shipping to your home!

Included in this bundle:

Refurbished Wii System, 1 Wii Remote Controller, 1 Wii Nunchuk Controller

It sounds like you don’t get any games with the initial package, so keep that in mind when you place your order. You might want to throw something like Mario Kart or Shaun White Skateboarding in your cart too.

The Nintendo Wii page above doesn’t state how long the warranty is on this refurbished item, but on this page, EB Games state that there is a 30 day limited warranty on refurbished hardware. Obviously that’s not a very long time period, but it should be more than enough to get your console set up and make sure it’s in working order.

Price Comparison?

I tried to check the price for other Nintendo Wiis online, but there are not many places selling refurbished models to accurately compare the pricing. If you were to buy a Wii, you’d be looking at around $100+ even for just a used model on or eBay. At least if you buy from EB Games, you’ve got that 30 day warranty in case anything happens.

Wii Modding?

This is something I’ve heard of but never tried to do myself. You can mod your Wii to play backup games, stored on an external device. This probably negates any kind of warranty you’d get with a Wii… but if you’re only spending $50 on one, then it won’t break the bank.

Wii Memories!

Can you believe that the Nintendo Wii was first released in 2006 – that’s nine years ago! Until I started writing this article, I didn’t realise that it had been around for quite as long as that. I think I got a Nintendo Wii back in or around 2008, after the initial hype had died down a bit. That very same device is now sitting in a box in my attic… loved no more! However, back in the day, I used it a lot. When friends came round for parties (before we had kids!), we’d crack out the Wii and have some Mario Kart fun, along with a few other party games. I also used the Wii to get fitter – using the balance board and some fitness games. It worked for a while… although in thinking about that right now, I should probably give it another try. Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

Playstation Store Flash Sale: Up To 91% off Select Games, Titles From Only $1.40! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 16, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Playstation Store Flash Sale: Up To 91% off Select Games, Titles From Only $1.40! (EXPIRED)

Yo gamers! Have you got a PlayStation 3, a PlayStation 4, or a PlayStation Vita? If you do, then you will want to check out this flash sale from the PlayStation store, which they are having this weekend. For a couple of days only, you can save up to 91% on a range of gaming titles. There are also 91 titles to choose from!

When I sorted the games by price low-to-high, it shows me that game pricing starts at only $1.40 for the likes of this game – Flower for the PS3/PS4/Vita (80% discount). This little game actually looks really beautiful – it lets you take control of the wind and explore various environments. It looks like the kind of game I could chill out to, for a couple of hours on the weekend (after the kids were in bed, of course).

There are 90 other games on sale, all with varying prices and popularity. One of my all-time favourite gaming franchises is on sale too – you can pick up Borderlands 2 at a 76% discount – grab it now for only $4.80. A quick google of a price comparison shows me that this game is $20+ at most other online stores in Canada, for a hard copy of the title. $4.80 is a truly excellent price to grab the digital download of this game.

Here are a few other popular titles that you might be interested in getting:

These prices are so low that it’s a “buy now, think later,” type of sale. Are you buying a few?
