*BUMP* Amazon Canada: Wii U Deluxe Bundle + Free $40 Amazon GC Only $300

*BUMP* Amazon Canada: Wii U Deluxe Bundle + Free $40 Amazon GC Only $300

If you want to buy a Nintendo WiiU, now is the time to pull the plug. Amazon has the Wii U Deluxe Bundle on for only $299 and you’ll get a free $40 Amazon gift card along with it.

The deluxe Wii U bundle includes:

  • Wii U console
  • Super Mario 3D world game
  • Nintendo land game
  • $40 Amazon gift card

You need to add both the deluxe bundle and the gift card to your cart and you’ll still pay only $299.99. This is a really great deal considering just the deluxe set is $299.99 at Best Buy and Walmart, but neither include a free gift. You are basically getting the gift card for free. You can spend it on whatever you like (more games), or give it as a gift. Both will ship to you for free.

I have the Nintendo Wii U and I’m very glad we chose it over Xbox as it has lots of good games for kids and families. My kids play it regularly and their absolute favourite game is Mario 3D world. We actually spend the $70 or so on the game itself after we bought our console, so to get it included is very nice.

We also have Nintendo Land, but the kids haven’t shown as much interest in playing it. I believe we also bought this game at full price because the kids wanted it.

Reviewers feel the same as I do:

Its so awesome! Loving the Wii U much more then other systems.

Love this game system! The shipping came right on time, without any damage.
Thank you so much!

The gift card comes in a little package of which you can choose the style, whether it be Christmas or birthday, so it makes it already pre-packaged and ready to give as a gift.

Like any Amazon deal, this could go quickly, so let me know if you see it is no longer available!

Future Shop Canada: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker For The Nintendo Wii U (Pre Order) | Was $45 Now $35 (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow gamers! Future Shop is having an awesome deal on their pre-orders for Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U system, and it won’t be around for very long! This Wii U game normally sells for $44.99, but with this Future Shop deal, you can purchase Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for $34.99! That’s $10 off – you can’t go wrong with that! You’ll also qualify for free shipping! This game is set to be released on December the 5th, so in a few weeks you’ll be able to enjoy playing this great fun-filled title! This deal will expire before midnight, so take advantage of this bargain while you can!

I have been waiting for the release of this Nintendo Wii U game since it was first announced early this year. My girlfriend and I were actually able to play a demo of this Captain Toad Treasure Tracker game at a Wii U kiosk that was located at a The Source location near our home, and it’s a lot of fun! It’s bound to be a game full of fun puzzles, cute graphics, and best of all, plenty of Toad, the pint-sized character that’s been seen in Mario games since Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo video game system, the NES.

These Captain Toad puzzles first made their appearance on the fantastic Wii U release, Super Mario 3D World. They were little mini games that you could play, and my main squeeze and I just loved them! In Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U, you’ll be able to enjoy so many more puzzles that are more complex than the ones that were in Super Mario 3D World, and you’ll get some added abilities, as well! If you’re looking for a cute game that both kids and adults could enjoy for your Wii U, then I highly recommend that you pick up this title.

If you pre-order Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U from Best Buy, it would cost $44.99. This deal expires before midnight, so get this while you still can! Happy gaming, my fellow deal hunters!

Best Buy Canada: Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 For The Nintendo Wii U | Was $50 Now $20

Good afternoon, my fellow gamers! Today’s deal at Best Buy is for Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U, and it’s one that you should definitely check out! This game normally retails for $49.99, but you can now pick up this Wii U game for only $19.97 (plus $5 shipping)! This is a fantastic deal for a 1st-party Nintendo Wii U game! This item is on final clearance, so quantities are extremely limited. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U is a fun game that’s fun for people of all ages! I own this game, and my girlfriend and I have a great time playing this Mario & Sonic game. It’s a great multiplayer game, too, so if you have 3 other friends that want to play with you, then you should totally pull out this game for the Wii U.

One particular mini game that’s included in Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U that I had a lot of fun with was the figure skating activity. As my girlfriend and I held our Wii remote controllers, we had to act out a figure skating performance (that was played out on our TV screen by Bowser and Yoshi), and it was just too much fun. We couldn’t stop laughing as we had to spin around our living room, trying not to stumble during this hilarious process!

If you wanted to buy Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U at WalMart in America, it would cost you $38.06 US. I’ve included a brief review of this game from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

This is a great game for four players. It’s a lot of fun and not too complicated for the people in the group that don’t play a lot.

Happy hunting, my fellow gamers!

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 6:00 AM

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Shoppers Drug Mart is currently advertising a cool promotion on their website, and it just might pique your interest. If you pick up any video games tomorrow at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you, you could get 20 times the Shoppers Optimum Points with your purchase (if you spend $50 or more)! If you don’t have a Shoppers Optimum Card, you could easily apply for one at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you (and it’s free of charge). This can lead to some big savings, especially if you plan to purchase certain video games or consoles for Christmas, including the Microsoft Xbox One, Sony PS4, Nintendo Wii U, or Nintendo 3DS. You can find out just how much you can save by checking out the Shoppers Optimum Points calculator that’s on their website – click here to see how much you could save!

There are many great video games that you can save on during this one-day sale. It will only be valid today (Saturday November 15th), and it can help you get a huge amount of Shoppers Optimum Points that you could use for future purchases at Shoppers Drug Mart (yes, you could even use these optimum points to get more points once they show up in your account).

In fact, you could even spend $299.99 on a Wii U system today and get 20X the Shoppers Optimum Points for your purchase. This would translate to 60,000 Optimum Points, which equals to about $95 of credit that you could use (once it shows up in your account). So you could come back in a few weeks and use that credit on another video game that hasn’t been released yet, like the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. U (which should retail for $64.99), which means that you’d still have about $30 in Shoppers Optimum Points to use! Now that’s a sweet deal.

This 20x Optimum Points promotion can also apply to other merchandise in the store (with select exclusions, which you could check out here.) Have fun today, Bargainmoosers – I hope you can all find some sweet video games and consoles at Shoppers Drug Mart today!

Best Buy Canada: Free $70 Gift Card With 5 Game Pre-Orders

Best Buy Canada: Free $70 Gift Card With 5 Game Pre Orders

Stock up on games and save with Best Buy’s newest promotion. By pre-ordered five games right now, you will also receive a $70 e-gift card for free. Games for pre-order are available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii or PC.

Now at first glance I know you might be thinking that pre-ordering five games in one shot is a lot, but if you plan on getting these games anyways once they come out, then you might as well take advantage of this offer now. Plus, the way I see it is that since a typical game costs $70, for five, that comes up to $350 and even though you need to use the $70 gift card on a future purchase, it’s sort of like you’re getting a 20% discount. The only difference is that the savings aren’t instantaneous. Once you take advantage of this promotion, the $70 e-gift card will be sent by e-mail on December 22nd.

Luckily, not all games available for pre-order are $70 either. Just Dance 2015 for Wii and Wii U, for instance, is $39.99. Meanwhile Alien Isolation for Xbox 360 is $54.99.Although there are also games for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, below is a list of the games you can pre-order right now for PS4to take advantage of this deal.

Future Shop Canada: Epic Mickey 2 For The Nintendo Wii U | Final Clearance $10

Posted by on September 30, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Future Shop Canada: Epic Mickey 2 For The Nintendo Wii U | Final Clearance $10

If you’re a Disney fan, or even just a fan of adventure games on the Nintendo Wii U system, this deal just might intrigue you. Currently, Future Shop Canada is selling Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two for the Nintendo Wii U at a final clearance price of $9.97 (plus $5 shipping). Normally $34.99, this game has had its prices slashed several times since its release, but this is the lowest price I’ve ever seen for it.

Epic Mickey 2 allows you to play as two classic Disney characters: Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. It’s a fun adventure game that gives you plenty of different areas to explore.

I tried out the first Epic Mickey game for the original Wii system, and I thought it was a cute adventure that can have some challenging puzzles. It was pretty fun to play, and had some gorgeous visuals. Obviously, this Wii U sequel has even better graphics than the first instalment, and apparently has some creative ways for players to use the Wii U gamepad’s touchscreen throughout the game.

The first Mickey Mouse video game that I played was Mickey Mousecapades for the original Nintendo system. I got it on Christmas when I was just 3 years old, and I vaguely remember my older brother being upset that I didn’t pick Mega Man 2 instead (hey, I was 3! He had high expectations. Plus, I got Mega Man 2 on my 4th birthday – I was one lucky child!) Even though it was primitive and the gameplay wasn’t the greatest, I still have warm memories of playing Mickey Mousecapades for the NES.

You can currently pick up this game on Amazon for $14.44 (only 2 are still in stock as of this writing) and it’s $20.37 US on WalMart’s American website. I’ve included a snippet of a review from Nintendo Power below:

There’s a lot to like about Mickey’s return to Wasteland, and the follow-up does improve on its predecessor in a number of ways.

For $10, you can’t go wrong. Especially since this is a licensed Disney game, Epic Mickey 2 for the Wii U is an adventure worth exploring if you have the time to dive into it. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Nintendo eShop: Super Smashing Sale – More Titles On Sale Including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze For $30

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Nintendo eShop: Super Smashing Sale   More Titles On Sale Including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze For $30

Now that the release of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS is on the horizon, it’s the final week for Nintendo’s Super Smashing Sale. During these weekly sales, many old and new games that featured classic Nintendo characters that are in the new Super Smash Bros. title had their prices slashed, and this week is no exception. Until October the 2nd, you can save on a decent selection of titles on the Wii U and 3DS systems that feature Donkey Kong, Kirby, Pikmin, Pac-Man, and several others. In fact, you can get Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Wii U for $29.99 (regular price on the Nintendo eShop is $49.99). At Future Shop and Best Buy, that game sells for $54.99! Plus, since these games are all their downloadable versions, you can play the games that you want shortly after you purchase them!

There are some great games featured in this sale (including my favourite, Pikmin 3, which was $59.99 but is now $39.99). The other titles that you can save on during Nintendo’s Super Smashing Sale include Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS ($19.99, was $29.99), Kirby’s Dream Land 3 for the Wii U ($4.99, was $7.99), Animal Crossing New Leaf for the 3DS ($19.99, was $29.99), and even the original Donkey Kong for the Wii U ($3.49, was $4.99).

Between some of these all – time classics and Nintendo’s newer offerings, this is a decent sale for video game fans. I bought Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze at the beginning of this year, and it’s a lot of fun (after all, it plays like the Donkey Kong Country games for the Super Nintendo). You can even play with 2 players at the same time, which I found to be a fun experience. It has some stumping puzzles littered throughout the game as well, so it’s a fun, challenging game that will keep you intrigued.

I’ve included a review for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

This game is literally flawless, from amazing gameplay, to wonderful music, to fantastic, striking visuals in HD on the Wii U. Literally can’t find a single thing wrong with this game. Every Wii U owner needs this. I am primarily an Xbox guy, but I picked up a Wii U last year and this game justified the purchase ALONE. 10/10 MUST BUY.

Check out this sale to see the full list of titles that you can save on for your Wii U and 3DS systems. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Future Shop Canada: Skylanders Swap Force Starter Kit (PS4, Xbox One, Wii U) | Was $60 Now $30 (Expired)

Posted by on September 14, 2014 at 9:11 AM

Future Shop Canada: Skylanders Swap Force Starter Kit (PS4, Xbox One, Wii U) | Was $60 Now $30 (Expired)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or if you do your best to ignore everything related to video games, it’s likely that you’ve heard of Skylanders. These collectable figurines are wildly popular with children, since they’re so unique – after all, these toys are used to play a video game! You simply place the figurine of a character that you want to play as on a portal, and in no time at all you’ll see that toy come to life in the Skylanders video game! At this time, Future Shop is having a decent sale on the PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U versions of the Skylanders Swap Force starter kit (the latest entry in the series) – you can order a starter kit of this game for just $29.99! It typically costs $59.99 for both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. You’ll also qualify for free shipping if you order this game, so that’s another great bonus!

The Skylanders Swap Force starter kit comes with the game, portal, 3 figurines that you can use in the game, and some trading cards.

Whether you’re a kid or an adult, these Skylanders games are pretty fun. They revolutionized the genre, and they even have an imitator that’s out in the market (The Disney Infinity series of games). The current rumour is that a new Skylanders game is on the horizon, which is why Skylanders Swap Force starter kits are currently on sale at Future Shop. Regardless of that, it’s still a great deal – especially if you’ve never tried out any Skylanders video games before.

I’ve tried out this game at an in -store kiosk before (they have these at many retail locations, including Future Shop, Best Buy, and even Target). It’s very intriguing, and a lot of fun. If you’ve ever wanted your toys to come to life, this is the next best thing! Plus, the character designs are pretty creative for these figurines, so I can see why this series has so many fans.

Skylanders Swap Force typically retails for $59.99, but it’s also on sale at Best Buy for the same price of $29.99 (as we all know, Best Buy and Future Shop tend to share some deals at the same time). However, it currently costs $59.99 at Toys R Us and WalMart. I’ve also included a brief review of Skylanders Swap Force (the Wii U version) from a Future Shop customer below:

The game was really cool, totally different, and they can jump now! Also, another good thing about the new one is the fact that you can still use the old Skylanders.

Quantities are limited, so get these while you can. Hope you all enjoy your Sunday, Bargainmoosers!

(Wii U) Amazon Canada: Pre-Order Mario Party 10 For $50 (Reg. $65) + Free Shipping

Posted by on August 19, 2014 at 5:30 PM

(Wii U) Amazon Canada: Pre Order Mario Party 10 For $50 (Reg. $65) + Free Shipping

Here’s a cool deal for the Mario superfans: you can pre-order Mario Party 10 for Wii U for just $49.99 instead of its regular price of $64.99. It’s set to be released on December 31st 2014 and since Amazon ships most orders over $25 for free, your order will also qualify for absolutely free shipping.

When I bought my Wii U last year, the first game that I bought with it was Super Mario 3D World and boy, have I had fun with it! In fact, my hubby and I still aren’t completely done with the game as although we beat the big boss Bowser, it turns out that there are more levels that are actually quite challenging and there is even a special character you can unlock. I fully expect Mario Party 10 to be just as fun, though it’s not in the same game style as the 3D world one. Speaking of which, Amazon also currently has Super Mario 3D World on sale for $49.94 (reg. $59.99).

Mario Party 10 is actually apart of a series of Mario games by the same name, which all originated with the initial Mario Party that was released for Nintendo 64 in 1998. Since then, it has been playable on the GameCube, the Wii and now the Wii U. It’s the kind of game that you can play with friends as up to 4 players compete against one another in a series of challenges and activities. In the previous instalment of Mario Party (the 9th one), for instance, players had to bounce around on a clouds and collect the most amount of coins. I’m sure that this next instalment will feature the a very similar game play, with the added bonus of better graphics with the Wii U and the ability to use the GamePad on top of the regular Nintendo Wii remote plus.

This is definitely a must-have deal for any Mario fan or Wii U owner in general, especially those of you with kids. This game may also be played alone against computerized players. It would definitely be even better if there was a possibility to play online versus friends but perhaps one day, it will be a possibility!

We would love to hear from you! Have you played the previous Mario Party games? What did you think?

Wii U Deluxe Set & NintendoLand (Refurb) @ Nintendo Canada: Only $207

Posted by on May 12, 2014 at 9:30 AM

 

Wii U Deluxe Set & NintendoLand (Refurb) @ Nintendo Canada: Only $207

Did you know that Nintendo Canada has an online store, from which they also sell refurbished products at low prices? Well, I’ve spotted a deal on there, for a refurbished bundle of the Nintendo Wii U console, along with the NintendoLand game – it’s priced at only $200.

Standard shipping is $7, so brings the total to $207 plus taxes.

Even though this is a refurbished item, it still comes with a full one year warranty, so there’s nothing to worry about in that regard. Their refurb policy states this:

Although it may have minor cosmetic blemishes, it is guaranteed to be fully functional. We think you will find the standards for Authentic Nintendo Refurbished Products are VERY high.

Sounds good to me! And it’s quite a good saving on the MRSP too. For example, the Wii U console alone is $250 @ Best Buy, $300 @ Staples, $320 @ Amazon, $300 @ EBGames, $350 @ NCIX, $300 @ Chapters Indigo.

The box comes with quite a few things included, with the main aspects being:

  • Wii U console (32GB Internal Storage*)
  • Wii U GamePad
  • Nintendo Land game disc

There are other items included such as the sensor bar, you can see a full list when you click through.

While you can buy bundles from $350 @ Costco, from $300 @ The Source, that kind of thing… it might be worth comparing those type of prices to see if it’s bundled with a game you are interested in. But if you’re just looking for the basic console and are happy with Nintendoland to get you started, then this price from Nintendo is very good. And the NintendoLand Bundle seems to be around $30 to $60 alone.

Toys R Us Canada: WiiU Bundle Set Only $199.97 For One Hour Only

From 9-10 pm tomorrow night (March 7th), you can go into any Toys R Us and purchase a Wii U Skylanders Swap Force basic set for only $199.97, which is $100 off from the regular price.

The flyer doesn’t say whether this sale will also be available online. This is part of their big Moonlight Madness sale, which has a number of good deals on at varying times. The details for the online sale is not yet posted, but when they are, let me know and I’ll tell everyone about them!

I have a Wii U and it is amazing. It is almost too amazing. My kids ask to play it constantly and it gets annoying, but that’s a whole different story. Our favourite game is called Highway Rollers, which is on the Wii Party game disc. Four of us can play and do minigames and challenges to get to the end. It is quite the fun family game to play. My kids have Skylanders Swap Force too, which is the game that comes with this system, and it is all the rage at school. I also noticed that the game NintendoLand comes with this system as well, so this really is a sweet deal! The cheapest I’ve ever seen it on sale was $249.

If you can order online, this items will ship free as it is over $99.

Nintendo: Get Wii Fit U For Free With Purchase Of Fit Meter

If you had a Wii, but then got a Wii U, you can still work out using your Wii Fit game, or you can also get Wii Fit U for free.

I have the Wii Fit game with balance board from my old Wii. We now have the Wii U and I’d love to try the newer and improved version available for Wii U, and I can actually do it for free. Here’s what you need to do. First of all, download the game from the Nintendo eShop and you’ll get it free for 31 days, so you can try it out and decide if you love it. You’ll use your existing balance board to do the activities (or you can probably buy one from Kijiji if you don’t already have Wii Fit). If you decide you like it, simply buy the Fit Meter for $19.99 at Best Buy, $19.83 at Amazon or you can get it from a bunch of other stores for around the same price. Do your research. You’ll then get to keep the game forever! You just have to sync the meter with your free version to get the game for good.

The Fit Meter is actually really great because you don’t have to just use it in your living room while playing Wii U. It counts your steps, measures intensity and altitude changes so that the calorie counter knows exactly how many calories you really burn depending on how hard you are really working, rather than the distance you’ve gone. Once you’ve synced it to your Wii U, you’ll get accurate readings and graphs so you can track your progress. Take advantage of the fun challenges to get you moving. Wii Fit U lets you have up to 12 profiles, but everyone will need their own fit meter. What’s really cool: your dog can get one too so you can manage his/her exercise needs.

I’m going to to download the free trial right now to help me with my fitness goals. I love that I can weigh myself and the game keeps track of it for me, telling me how much I’ve gone up or down so I can improve.

Walmart Canada: Skylanders Swap Force For WiiU Only $49

Walmart Canada: Skylanders Swap Force For WiiU Only $49

If you couldn’t find this item, or it wasn’t cheap enough for you, enjoy the savings now and pay only $49 for Skylanders Swap Force for WiiU, was $74.99. And because this is Walmart, you’ll also enjoy free shipping.

Walmart’s Boxing Day sales have begun online, and I think the great ones will go fast. Skylanders is one of the hottest games out there right now. It is so popular that my kids had a Skylanders Day in the grade 1 classroom. Personally, I wanted to get this item for my kids at a good price. My husband was in the States just before Black Friday when it was on sale there for this price and the stores were sold out. Black Friday in Canada I went to Toys R Us to get it and they didn’t have it for WiiU. I was issued a rain cheque, but they never got it in. I ended up paying $60 for it at Best Buy last week. If I had waited, like some of you reading this, I would have only had to pay $50 today.

Looking at the in-store list, many of the stores are completely out of stock on this item. So, if you were hoping to pick it up for this price on Boxing Day in the store, you may be out of luck. Much more sensible, get it now online before it sells out there too.
