Banana Republic Canada: Save 20% Off Any Order With Visa Checkout & 25% Off With Coupon Code

Posted by on June 12, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Banana Republic Canada: Save 20% Off Any Order With Visa Checkout & 25% Off With Coupon Code

We have seen some smoking hot discounts courtesy of VISA Checkout, and today I have one more for you! Over at Banana Republic Canada if you use VISA checkout for your order, you will receive an extra 20% off your entire order.

At first, I had trouble locating the Visa checkout button because I was signed into my Banana Republic Canada account. To use this deal, you will sign in only through Visa checkout, not through Banana Republic so make sure you are not logged in. Fill your cart with your favourite goodies, then head to the cart. When you are not logged in, there is a Visa checkout button available inside the cart. The 20% discount is taken off your entire order at the last stage of checkout and is good for any purchase except gift cards.

Now for the fun part, let’s go shopping for some deals! For the biggest discounts, I headed to the sale section. I like this Coral Fit And Flare Skirt. This skirt was $95 but is on sale for $39.99. After Visa checkout, your final price will be $31.99. This skirt has a banded waist and soft pleats. You can pick this fun and flirty skirt up in sizes four through fourteen. Coral is a great colour for summer and this skirt would brighten up any outfit.

I also am digging this cute Piped Racerback Tank in navy that was $85 and is on sale for $26.99. With the Visa Checkout discount, it is now only $21.59. This casual racer back tank has a white piping along the edges and a flowy feel. I think this would look great for a casual look, and you can dress this tank up or down easily. You can pick up the navy version in sizes medium, large and extra-large. There is also a white version with black piping around the arms. The white version is available in all sizes from extra small to extra-large. The white tank was $85 and is on sale for $29.99. You can now grab it for only $23.99 with the Visa checkout discount.

Stacking With A Coupon Code

This Visa Checkout discount also stacks with the coupon code Banana Republic Canada has available right now. To use this code, you must add an item that is regularly priced, then use the code BRWANT to take 25% off your item. You apply the coupon code after using Visa Checkout. I tested it out with these Pleated Drapey Shorts that were $74 but now are only $44.40 after both discounts. Check it out below.

Banana Republic Canada: Save 20% Off Any Order With Visa Checkout & 25% Off With Coupon Code


Banana Republic Canada has set a free shipping minimum of $50. This $50 is calculated after the sale prices, but before the extra 20% is taken off from VISA checkout or the discount from your coupon code applies. Shipping otherwise costs $8, so I highly recommend filling your cart with a few goodies so they ship free.

I love these Visa checkout deals and discounts we have been scoring lately. Even better, it is so easy to have my credit card info in just one place rather than a bunch of different stores.

$10 Kobo Credit with Visa Checkout

Posted by on June 7, 2015 at 7:55 PM

$10 Kobo Credit with Visa Checkout

Kobo Books has teamed up with Visa Checkout to offer you $10 Kobo Credit.

The offer is fairly simple: place an (1) order for an eBook or magazine. Use Visa Checkout as your payment method. The $10 will appear in your account as an account credit. it will be automatically applied within 48-hours of your purchase. There is a limit of one credit per Kobo user and, as per usual, Kobo reserves the right to cancel the promotion at any time.

If you are still not familiar with Visa Checkout, then let me refresh your memory on how to use it.

  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button if you have not already
  • Complete your purchase

There appears to be no exclusions from this offer. I assume, based on the fine print, that any order is eligible including orders that use coupons or purchase sale books and magazines. We have had some great deals from Kobo lately, and you can combine all of them with this offer as well!

As Anna mentioned, there is a free $5 credit for new members to Kobo Books. On top of it, you can find plenty of:

I also recently blogged a great magazine deal where an entire year’s subscription will only cost you $5. There are some popular magazine titles in there, thus I recommend checking it out. In fact, one of these yearly magazine subscriptions could be your qualifying order for the $10 credit.

Books and magazines are really a personal taste. I have never managed to get behind digital books the same way I have received digital music, but that is because books are a tactile experience as well. However, I relish the thought of no bookshelves: just a little device, less than half the width of a small softcover, sitting on my bedside table. The minimalist in me loves this idea while nostalgia keeps me from parting from all my books.

Magazines are different. I far prefer the digital copies as it saves so much money and wasted paper. They also are more ‘consumable’ than books. Few people I know read magazines more than once or twice.

This is a fantastic offer from Kobo and I hope many of our lovely Moosers can take advantage of it.

Chapters Indigo Canada: timi & leslie Kate 7-Piece Diaper Bag Was $180 | Now $128 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Chapters Indigo Canada: timi & leslie Kate 7 Piece Diaper Bag Was $180 | Now $128 & Free Shipping

Get the “it” diaper bag at Chapters Indigo this week! Get $20 off the timi & leslie diaper bags, plus another 20% when you use Visa Checkout. The one I found the most intriguing is the Kate 7-piece bag, which was $180, on sale for $160 and with Visa Checkout will come to $128. You’ll of course get free shipping as your order is over $25.

Here’s something I didn’t know: you don’t need Visa to check out with Visa Checkout! You can use other forms of payment like MasterCard and American Express. I hadn’t realized this and was dismissing all these deals because I have a MasterCard and not a Visa and I don’t want you to lose out like I may have! This means that as long as you are using a credit card, you’ll get this extra 20% off using Visa Checkout!

Now, let me tell you about these diaper bags. This is no ordinary bag. It is incredibly stylish, so you don’t feel like you are sacrificing style because you’ve got to carry diapers, bottles, snacks and everything else that comes with a child under four years old. But, instead of just carrying a purse or another favourite bag, it is also practical for carrying baby’s items, so it is much more intuitive than your coach bag. One of those features is a water-resistant lining, which means when that sippy cup spills, you won’t be wrecking your bag. It also has an insulated bottle tote, so you can warm that bottle and keep it warm inside the bag. A zippered sac makes sure those poop-splosions don’t get on your personal items. It also has stroller straps so you don’t have to lug it around, especially when you know you’ll be pushing a stroller while carrying a screaming bag. It’s true, it happens.

I priced around for this Kate bag and I found this deal at Chapters Indigo by far beats the competition. Amazon sells a great number of timi & leslie bags and Chapters Indigo has them beat on every bag. The Kate bag, while a different colour than what Chapters Indigo sells, sells for $179.99.

Charlie could also be a popular bag with its simple, but gorgeous style. Regularly $170, on sale for $150, you’ll get it for $120. Amazon sells that bag for $169.99. There are two colours available at Chapters Indigo.

What’s great about these bags is that you don’t just have one or two styles to choose from, there are a number of styles for every different person’s look and feel. You could even get two if the mood strikes so that you have a different look, like one light colour and one darker colour.

If you need another reason as to why to buy these bags, check out this video on how cool they are!

Chapters Canada: 20% Off Books, Home, Toys, & More with Visa Checkout

Posted by on May 5, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Chapters Canada: 20% Off Books, Home, Toys, & More with Visa Checkout

Chapters Canada has also teamed up with Visa Checkout to offer you a 20% discount on select items. Checkout with Visa Checkout and use your Visa credit card to pay in order to receive 20% off books, toys, home decor, and more.

This is the first deal with Visa Checkout that I am actually going to take advantage of right after I write about it. I love Chapters Indigo and use them instead of Amazon for book purchases. I try to encourage shopping at Chapters Indigo to keep Amazon from having a monopoly on online books sales. They generally have the same prices anyway. With this discount, you are most certainly getting a far better deal than at Amazon.

Visa Checkout is simple:

  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button if you have not already
  • Complete your purchase

If you have taken advantage of any of the previous Visa Checkout deals at other websites, then you already have an account.

There are a few exclusions that you need to know about:

 Offer excludes Apple® products and accessories; gift cards; Kate Spade®, LEGO® and Rosetta Stone® products; used books/music/DVDs; and loyalty memberships or Love of Reading products or donations.

This discount is available up to a maximum purchase of $1,000.

I am going to purchase three ‘books’ with this offer: actually, they are all graphic novels that I am collection. First, I will purchase Saga Volume 3 and Saga Volume 4. I own one and two already. This comic is phenomenal – no wonder it is so critically acclaimed. Both graphic novels are $13.68 each. The discount should bring each volume down to just $10.94 (with Plum discount as well).

My third choice is Rat Queens Volume 2, which is not actually released yet. This volume will be released on May 19th. I own volume one and think this graphic novel is a solid piece of work. I really like that the ‘main gang’ is an all-female group with varying personalities (and looks). Each have their own issues and their own skills. I think the character development over the story is awesome. Currently this volume is $13.68 and should come down to $10.94 after both Visa Checkout discount and Plum Rewards discount.

Orders of $25 or more will ship to your home for free.

Clearly Contacts: $10 Off No Minimum with Visa Checkout

Posted by on May 3, 2015 at 4:58 PM

Clearly Contacts: $10 Off No Minimum with Visa Checkout

We have seen several Visa Checkout promotions already, including the Running Room, Staples, and Cineplex (which expires today). Clearly Contacts Canada has jumped on board by offering $10 off your purchase when you pay with Visa Checkout (and a Visa card). No minimum purchase is required from what I can see.

I checked the fine print but could not find a minimum purchase value – so consider this $10 off $10+ if you want. Using Visa Checkout is simple. First, select the product you want to purchase. If you are buying glasses, then you will need your prescription and your pupillary distance (PD), which is often not on your prescription. The distance between the centers of the pupils in each eye is hard to measure yourself or even for a friend. Like Mooser Rodney suggestions, get it professionally done even if it costs you a few dollars. Armed with this information, pick out the glasses you want, input your prescription information, customize your lenses, and then add them to your cart.

When checking out you will want to:

  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button if you have not already
  • Complete your purchase (pay with a Visa card)

Now, there is a bit of fine print you will want to know about. The offer does not expire for nearly five days, but there are an allowable number of redemptions. Once exceeded, the discount will not apply. Until then, the discount automatically applies at checkout. The discount applies to items only and does not cover taxes or shipping charges. Shipping charges only count on contacts as all glasses and sunglasses now ship free of charge.

There is a limit of one discount per checkout. I am not sure if the same account can use this discount more than once.

Clearly Contacts sells glasses starting at just $49 and sunglasses starting at $49 as well. For example, the Skechers SK4011 Navy Grey 72 is a unisex set of sunglasses (good for boys and girls) that only costs $49. With the Visa Checkout offer, you will only pay $39 with free shipping. Even if you do not need prescription sunglasses, you can still order sunglasses from Clearly Contacts.

Staples Canada: $20 off $100 with Visa Checkout (EXPIRED)

Staples Canada: $20 off $100 with Visa Checkout (EXPIRED)

We have a new Staples Canada promotion for you – and it is just lovely! Receive $20 off your order of $100 or more when you pay with Visa Checkout.

Visa checkout is a ‘digital wallet’ service akin to Paypal Canada. We have seen a few Visa Checkout promotions before from the likes of Cineplex and from Newegg. The instructions are simple:

  • Your cart must total $100 or more before taxes
  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button if you have not already
  • Complete your purchase (pay with a Visa card)

You only need to sign up for an account once – so if you signed up for an account with the Cineplex offer or with the Newegg offer, then you can skip that step. The discount will be automatically applied at checkout.

There is always going to be a bit of fine print. This deal cannot be used to buy postage stamps, downloadable software or services, computer rentals, self-serve copying, gift cards, phone cards, getaway packages, or Bose products. The last one hurts because I am dying to buy a Bose speaker!

The deals centre is a great place to start looking. This Five Star Style Poly Binder, 1.5″ was $6.99 and is now on sale for just $1. Pick up all the binders your kids will ever need for school all in one purchase.

I live by a heater all winter and into the spring. This Honeywell® Whole-Room Ceramic-Core Comfort Heater looks like a gorgeous unit for warming my entire living room! Originally $89.96, the heater is now on sale for $67.47. I price compared this heater at Amazon Canada where it retails for $79.99. Not only are you getting a better price on the unit, you will save further money with the $20 off $100 offer via Visa checkout.

I could not find this CyberpowerPC V3 Voltair 800-1800 RPM CPU Cooling Fan at many other places, but it looks to be a good deal. Originally $139.99, the cooling fan is on sale for $69.99. I did find it at a US store for around $95 CDN – but shipping and duties would certainly jack that price up.

There are many great deals like this throughout the Staples Canada website. As the $20 off $100 deal necessitates you spend over $45, shipping to your home will also be free.

Telus Canada: Student Deals & Free $50 Pre-Paid Visa

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Telus Canada: Student Deals & Free $50 Pre Paid Visa

Telus Canada is offering a free $50 pre-paid Visa card, free wi-fi and installation, and student internet starting at just $25 per month for a year.

I blogged about the Shaw deals for students on Thursday, so today I dug up what Telus is offering. Telus and Shaw dominate the Canadian internet market, thus their deals are the ones you will want to compare to get the best student deal on internet.

I assume that internet prices differ by province, as when I tested this deal out, there was no $25 per month plan. All plans for my area in BC started at $30. Here is what I found (prices subject to change depending on area):

Telus Internet 15

This package gives you 3 to 15Mbps download speeds and up to 1Mbps upload speed, with up to 150 GB monthly data. It costs $30 a month in BC, but I have no idea why this package is even offered as the next package up is the exact same price for more goodies. Is this a joke, Telus?

Telus Internet 25

As I mentioned above, this package is the same price as the useless package deal above: $30. The other package should not even be a consideration because Internet 25 is far superior. Receive 5 to 25Mbps download speeds, up to 2.5Mbps upload speed, with 250 GB of monthly data. This is essentially the same as the middle Shaw package except the $50 free Visa sweetens the pot substantially. The other major factor in Telus’s favour: this agreement is for an entire year instead of eight months. You enjoy an extra four months of savings over Shaw’s offer.

Telus Internet 50

Enjoy 20 to 50Mbps download speeds, up to 10Mbps upload speed, with 400 GB per month of data. This package trumps Shaw’s Broadband 50 by being $10 cheaper at only $40 per month. It also wins because it is a twelve-month agreement and the package includes a free Telus Wi-Fi Plus range booster ($100 value). You are seriously scoring with either this or the Internet 25 deal.

I have watched Telus and Shaw battle it out on the student internet front for the last few years. If you are on a really tight budget, I still suggest the Shaw 10 bundle at only $20 a month. However, if you want more bang for your buck, then I think Telus is the clear winner with their Internet 25 and Internet 50 packages. That free $50 pre-paid Visa card does not hurt either.

Black’s Canada: $150 Visa Gift Card With Koodo or Telus Activation

Posted by on April 9, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Blacks Canada: $150 Visa Gift Card With Koodo or Telus Activation

Black’s Canada is handing out free money for activating the new smartphone you were already going to get! What’s not to love?

All you have to do to get the $150 Visa gift card is activate a new Koodo plan or a two or three year Telus plan. If you happen to be going with Telus, Black’s will also throw in their “Prints for Life” package for as long as you have the plan. That gives you 1000 free prints per year. This is an in-store only deal but you’re gonna wanna go down to the store to look at the phones anyway.

I think Black’s is doing something very cool. It would be very easy for a photography store to go under nowadays. When your business has traditionally been printing photos and framing, the new digital era is kinda scary. They’ve done all the standard stuff that you need to do in that business but they have gone further. Instead of just accepting digital images and printing them off, they’ve expanded into digital picture frames and mobile devices among others. The mobile phone thing, I think, was their best move. They have realized that the new camera of the masses is the smartphone. With a good camera on your phone, you don’t really need to go get a camera anymore.

Scotiabank Canada: Low Interest & Student Credit Cards

Posted by on February 10, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Scotiabank Canada: Low Interest & Student Credit Cards

Scotiabank has two interesting credit card officers I wanted to share with our Moosers. They have a no annual fee student credit card with an annual cash back feature (which is awesome) and they also offer a low interest no fee credit card if you are not a student.

The Student card offer is really good. It is for students only, ages 18-25 years. Here are the features:

  • Earn up to 1% money back every year on the purchases you’ve made with your card
  • Interest free grace period of at least 21 days on purchases
  • 20% discount rates at Avis Car Rental
  • Take advantage of other VisaPerks
  • Interest rate of 19.99% on purchases and 21.99% on balance transfers and cash advances

I suggest never carrying a balance. The 1% money back every year is awesome because student expenses can really add up – and that added cash back once a year is fairly nice.

This is a great card if you need a low interest credit card, without any bells and whistles. If you DO carry a balance on a higher interest rate card, it might be a good idea to switch and save yourself some dollars. It has an annual fee, but the money you will be saving in interest will highly outweigh the annual fee. Here are the features:

  • 11.99% interest rate on purchases and on balance transfers and cash advances
  • Interest free grace period of at least 21 days on purchases
  • 20% discount rates at Avis Car Rental
  • $29 annual fee
  • 0.99% interest rate on cash advances and balance transfers for the first six months for accounts opened by Feb. 28th

Carrying a balance is never a good idea – but if you have to carry a balance it is best to get onto a card that charges you the least amount of interest.

Right now they have a fabulous printable coupon to receive 25% off your purchase (regular priced) at Crabtree & Evelyn!

The C&E store locator is useless because it only lists 1 location in London Ontario, and yet I have seen them in BC and in the mall that is 15 minutes from me! So my suggestion is contact if you need to find a store or just google it.

This is one of the highest discounts that VisaPerks offers – and it is fab. You are essentially making your own sale from regular priced merchandise just buy paying with your Visa.

They say that this is a 63% saving on the cover price. I am not sure of the cover price as I don’t read More Magazine myself, and I cannot seem to find the regular cost online. I noticed that on the normal subscription page, the subscription cost is $20 for a year, so I think the $13.98 offer is very good!
