Toys R Us: Xbox One Wireless Controller $39.95 & $10 Off Coupon

Toys R Us: Xbox One Wireless Controller $39.95 & $10 Off Coupon

We have found the best deal on an Xbox One controller that you can possibly get right now. The Xbox One – Wireless Controller has dropped from $59.95 down to $39.95 at Toys R Us. Merely add a filler item, and you can score the controller for $29.95 (+ filler item cost) after the coupon code CineplexHoliday.

The name of the game is finding the cheapest filler item you can possibly add on to your cart. That way, you can get a stellar deal on the Xbox One controller. I found several options for filler items:

In Store Pickup:

Ship to Home:

Now, you can get your filler item shipped to store while the Xbox Wireless Controller ships to your home. You could then go pick up the filler item, or not! I played around the Crayola Crayons to fill out my cart. See how it works below:

Toys R Us: Xbox One Wireless Controller $39.95 & $10 Off Coupon

I will have the Xbox One controller shipped to my home. The Crayola crayons will ship to a store nowhere near me and together these two items are just above $40, so the $10 off $40 coupon applies. You can see it in my cart. In addition, as the order is over $25, it ships for free. My estimated total for both the crayons and the controller is $30.94 before tax. You will not find that price anywhere else! Here are the competition’s prices right now:

  • $39.99 @ Microsoft Store Canada
  • $39.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $46.99 + $7.60 Shipping @ Newegg Canada
  • $59.83 @ Walmart Canada
  • $59.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $59.99 @ Future Shop Canada

As you can see, this controller is on sale at both Microsoft and Amazon but you are undercutting their prices by nearly $10 when you add on a small filler item.

For filler items, I included two that you can get shipped to local store (cheapest) and I included two that can be shipped to your home, in case neither of the ‘in store’ items are available at your local store. I hope this helps you score this fantastic deal on a brand new Xbox Wireless Controller. Even if you need to spend $3 on a filler item, you are still saving a good chunk of money off the competitor’s prices.

Downloadable Content for Titanfall FREE @ Xbox Store ($25 Value)

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 1:21 PM

Downloadable Content for Titanfall FREE @ Xbox Store ($25 Value)

I know zip about Titanfall, but the internet is swarming with happy gamers because Microsoft has discounted a load of Titanfall DLC for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

Here is how the deal goes. The Titanfall Season Pass was $24.99 and is now on sale for $0.00. The season pass includes all three of the DLC packs for a total of nine maps.

I have linked directly to the Canadian store for these freebies. However, if you have regional issues (as in it shows en-CA in the website address), then your region may be defaulting to the USA. Click here to reset your region to Canada, as you must get these through the Canadian store.

Now, what if you already have one or two of these down loadable content packs? Well, you can get each pack – for free – separately. Separately, each of the three packs retailed for $9.99, so you are still saving a good chunk of money.

Here are the direct links for the individual Xbox One DLC packs:

Here are the direct links for the individual Xbox 360 DLC packs:

Again, if you are redirected the the US website (even though I have linked to the Canadian side), then use the link above to change your default region. Xbox requires a credit card (that is why you need the Canadian region) but that card will not be charged for this dowloadable content.

Each pack comes with new maps, bug fixes, and new features. Here are the maps you will receive with each pack:

  • Expedition: War Games, Swampland, and Runoff
  • Frontier’s Edge: Dig Site, Export, and Haven
  • IMG Rising: Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap

All of these maps come with the season pass or you can purchase the DLC packs individually through the links above. The season pass is most convenient if you do not already own one or more of these DLCs.

For players of Titanfall, this is approximately a $25 freebie! I do not play Titanfall myself, so I would love to hear from anyone who does and picks up this freebie.

GamesDeal: XBOX Live 12-Month Gold Membership only $44

Posted by on February 22, 2015 at 6:17 PM

GamesDeal: XBOX Live 12 Month Gold Membership only $44

GamesDeal is selling the XBOX Live 12-Month Gold Membership for just $43.44 plus a 4% ($1.71) payment fee to equal $45.15. Use coupon code allkeyshop to take 2% off your purchase, which brings the membership down to just $44.28 (Canadian).

I price compared the 12-month XBox LIVE Gold membership with other retailers:

  • $48.99 @ Costco Canada
  • $59.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $56.83 @ Amazon Canada
  • $59.99 @ Microsoft Store Canada
  • $59.96 @ Walmart Canada (OOS)
  • $59.99 @ Dell Canada
  • $59.95 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

I know this membership is available at MANY retailers, so this is certainly not a thorough price comparison but i figured comparing to seven of the most popular stores would be pretty good coverage. Costco Canada comes close, but Games Deal still has the better offer by a couple dollars.

I am aware that US Microsoft Store has the US region gold memberships on sale for $39.99 US right now, but our exchange rate makes that deal not as good. $39.99 US = $50 CA with today’s exchange rate and not including exchange fees that your credit card will add on. That makes that deal cold as it is priced even higher than Costco’s price.

Now, I told you how to get this price by applying the coupon code above. Here is what the deal looks like on the website and in your cart:

GamesDeal: XBOX Live 12 Month Gold Membership only $44

This is a very exciting deal as the Xbox Live memberships do not go on sale that much (except at Costco). With nearly $16 off the membership, you are saving around 26% on your membership.

I am not too familiar with the Xbox system, but I do know having the gold membership will help you score other deals as well. I recently was looking at a sale on the Xbox store where a bunch of the deals were open to Gold members only. If you did not have the gold membership, then you would have to pay full price for the game. For example, you can save 50% on Duck Dynasty with your gold membership.

The 12-month gold membership you purchase is region free (worldwide). It can be redeemed on a Canadian system without having to change your region to redeem. In addition, there are no shipping costs, as you will be emailed the code. I do not expect to see this price from any retail store soon, so pick this baby up as soon as possible. If you miss out, Costco is a good alternative.

Microsoft Store: Bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card with Select Game Pre-Orders

Posted by on January 22, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Microsoft Store: Bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card with Select Game Pre Orders

Enjoy a bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card with the pre-order of select Xbox games at the Microsoft Store.

If you are planning to pre-order any games, you might as well get a nice little bonus with them since you will be paying full price for the game. Eligible titles for the bonus $10 gift card start at $49.99 and go up to $259.99.

For $49.99, you can pre-purchase Rugby 2015 for Xbox One. The title will not be released until the 24th of February, so you have approximately one month to wait. Be the pro-player you never had the figure for when you grab this game full of breathtaking kicks, tackles, and passes. The bonus $10 Xbox gift card does not hurt either.

Perhaps the most anticipated title of the New Year, Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One is available for pre-order. Flop down $69.99 and get a bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card digital code with your purchase. Unfortunately, you will have to wait a while on this one; it is not scheduled for release until the end of December! If you follow the Halo franchise, then you know just how amazing this video game title has been in the past. The new version brings an all-new Arena multiplayer mode and new campaigns to keep you awake for days on end.

I think I need to play my current Final Fantasy game before my hubby will let me purchase another one. However, if you already came out of your locked bedroom covered in Cheetos dust, then pre-order Final Fantasy Type-0 HD at Microsoft. The game retails for $69.99 and will not be released until the end of 2015.

For pre-orders, you are required to give your credit card information and authorization but you will not be charged until the game is shipped. However, your bank may charge you a small reversible card-checking fee – but that should disappear within a few days. This way, your pre-order is a win-win situation as you can always cancel the order if you find it cheaper elsewhere.

There is a limit of one $10 gift card per qualifying Xbox One or Xbox 360 game title purchased for up to three game titles per person. Thus, this promotion can give you up to $30 in Xbox gift cards with your pre-orders. Shipping is free on all orders with Microsoft Canada.

Future Shop: Turtle Beach Gaming Headset just $29.99 *HOT*

Posted by on December 25, 2014 at 4:33 PM

Future Shop: Turtle Beach Gaming Headset just $29.99 *HOT*

Future Shop is totally blowing my mind with their price on the Turtle Beach Ear Force DXL1 Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset for Boxing Week. Ignore the ‘savings’ as it is horribly inaccurate and check out my price comparison below. Future Shop has this Turtle Beach headset that retails for $100+ on sale for $29.99.

They have the same deal at Best Buy but the expiry dates are different. You can get this deal at Future Shop until the end of the year while Best Buy’s deal ends tonight.

I price compared this unit because the ‘saved’ price at Future Shop is way out to lunch. Here is what the competitors are actually selling this headset for:

  • $99.95 @ The Source Canada (backordered)
  • $127.77 @ Amazon Canada
  • $136.79 @ Staples Canada

Oh yes, this Turtle Beach gaming headset is quite the deal. While it is designed for the Xbox 360, it IS compatible with the Xbox One, a PC/MAC, and even a PS3/PS4 with a small adapter cable – consult Turtle Beach’s website for more details. Since most people will purchase this to use either with their Xbox or with PC, I have included the PC hookup instructions to be your guide:

Future Shop: Turtle Beach Gaming Headset just $29.99 *HOT*

There are plenty of image tutorials on how to connect this headset to other gaming consoles as well.

One of the primary selling features of this headset is the DSS2 surround sound processor, which retails for $79.99 alone on Amazon.ca. Essentially, the headset and the surround sound processor are cheaper than buying the processor alone.

The headset also features:

  • 20 Hz – 20 kHz frequency response
  • In-line amplifier
  • 50mm speakers
  • separate volume controls
  • Positionable microphone

Essentially, you will enjoy the immersive experience of 360-degree surround sound blasting through these speakers while being able to differentiate the sounds from chat windows (etc) and keeping them at a lower level.

Amazon.com has many reviews for the headset with most of them being positive. One reviewer concluded his lengthy review saying:

Overall, this headset is amazing. After having high-end headsets, I really think they don’t really compare to this. I paid $70 for this here on Amazon. You really can’t beat the price for this wired headset. If you’re looking for a nice, comfortable headset with great sound; look no further.

Well, if he paid $70 USD for the headset and thought it was an unbeatable price, you really should snap it up for only $30 CA with free shipping.

NCIX Canada: NHL 15 For The Xbox One | Was $70 Now $40

Posted by on November 19, 2014 at 11:16 AM

NCIX Canada: NHL 15 For The Xbox One | Was $70 Now $40

Now this is one spicy deal! Today at NCIX you can order NHL 15 for the Xbox One system for just $39.99! You’ll also get free shipping with your order! This is the most popular hockey franchise available, and it’s also the latest addition to the well known EA Sports series. This normally sells for $69.99, so you’re getting one heck of a deal! Quantities of this video game are extremely limited, so get this now while it’s still available!

When you think of hockey video games, you think of EA Sports’ NHL series. This franchise has been around since 1991, when it was originally released on PC computers (for those who remember using the MS-Dos command line to boot up games, I salute you), and on the Sega Genesis video game console. They started to appear on the Super Nintendo when NHLPA Hockey 93 was released, and they eventually made their way on to the next generation of video game consoles several years later (the Sony Playstation, Sega Saturn, and Nintendo 64). Today, we’re still playing the NHL games on our PS4 and Xbox One video game systems!

If a family member, friend, or significant other has been hyped about this next-gen instalment of the NHL series, then they will certainly be ecstatic to receive NHL 15 for the Xbox One during the holidays! Get this while you can, though, because stock is limited, and it won’t be around for very long!

If you wanted to buy this game from Best Buy today, it would cost you $62.99 (it’s on sale today). Listed below is a snippet of a review of NHL 15 for the Xbox One from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

NHL 15 was rebuilt on a new engine for Xbox One, bringing a new visual feast for our eyes. Realistic jersey movement and crowds really draw you into the game.

Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

NCIX Canada: Destiny For The Xbox One | Was $70 Now $40

If you want to save big on an Xbox One game that’s going to be on many Christmas lists this year, then NCIX Canada is your hookup! At this time, you can now purchase the highly praised Destiny for the Xbox One for only $39.99! This game currently retails for $69.99! If you wanted to buy this game today at Best Buy or The Microsoft Store, it would cost you $69.99. Now this is one hot deal! You’ll also get free shipping with your order, which is always a nice bonus!

Destiny for the Xbox One is a shooter that will please many fans. You can learn more about this popular game by clicking on the link above.

At this time, I’m still on the fence regarding the Xbox One and PS4 console war. I currently have a Wii U, which I thoroughly enjoy, but I know that the Xbox One and the PS4 have plenty of different games that you can’t play on Nintendo’s new console. Destiny is one of those games – it’s only available on the Sony PS4 or Microsoft’s Xbox One. Plus, the graphics for both of these consoles are just mind-blowing! I think I might have to buy one of these systems next year, when even more games are released for them.

I’ve included a brief review of Destiny for the Xbox One from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

One of the best titles to come out so far for the XBOX One. If you enjoyed Halo then you’ll have a hard time putting this one down.

If you plan to buy Destiny for the Xbox One for a special someone, then you need to take advantage of this deal at NCIX. It’s $30 off the retail price, you’ll get free shipping with your order, so it’s a win-win situation! Quantities are limited, so get this while it’s still available! Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

(Xbox 360) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Just $3.74!

Posted by on October 27, 2014 at 1:30 PM

(Xbox 360) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Just $3.74!

Got an Xbox 360? Then you’re going to want to bust it out for this oldie because it’s a steal of a deal! For a limited time, you can get Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for just $3.74 for Xbox 360.

Oh the memories! Vice City is actually the very first GTA game I ever played and since it right away hooked me, I just had to get San Andreas as well once it came out. Despite being widely criticized for its gangster elements, it is nevertheless a very fun game.

Searching for its original release date, I actually found that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas first came out on October 26th 2004, which definitely explains the price drop as it has been nearly a decade!

If you’re wondering why the heck you should play a decade-old game, the answer it simple: it’s fun, addicting and I’m sure that you’ll forget all about how old it is. Graphically, it may not be as visually impressive as the latest instalment to have been released, GTA V, but at the time of its release, it was actually widely praised for its visuals. Plus, if you’re a GTA fan and have already finished GTA V, then it might be fun to either re-visit the oldies or play them for the very first time if you haven’t already just to get a handle on the story line.

Although there aren’t any in stock at Amazon, Future Shop is selling this version of the popular game for $19.99. There are plenty of immensely positive reviews online but here’s one I took from Future Shop’s site:

What can I say This game is amazing. From gameplay, graphics and story, this game is unbelievable. The offline co-op game will take you a long time if you want to get 100 completion like I did . I’ve put in 94 hours offline alone. lol. This game is addictive.

However, if you’re excited about the hot coffee mod, then you may be disappointed to know that a patch disabled the script that allowed users to access it. If you haven’t heard about the hot coffee mod, a quick search in Google will tell you all about it as it might not be the most appropriate GTA fact to mention here! (Xbox 360) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Just $3.74!

Xbox Live Marketplace Canada: Get 50% To 75% Off Select Xbox 360 Games

This is an intriguing deal that Xbox 360 owners can check out. When you log into the Xbox Live Marketplace, you can now save anywhere from 50% to 75% on a handful of great games! You won’t have to worry about paying shipping either, since you’ll be able to download these games on to your Xbox 360 system and play them soon after your purchase! All I can say to that is the following: whooo!

Here are the games that are included in this enticing Xbox Marketplace sale:  Alice: Madness Returns ($4.99 – was $19.99), Dead Space ($5.09 – was $14.99), Dead Island: Riptide ($9.99 – was $19.99), Dead Space 3 ($4.99 – was $19.99), and Mass Effect ($4.99 – was $19.99).

This sale doesn’t seem like something that’s being promoted too much by Microsoft, so click on the individual game links above to check out each deal. Get them quickly, because they just might go back to regular price soon!

These are some very familiar games – they certainly aren’t any discounted indy games! Mass Effect has had quite the following for a while as well, so it’s quite the popular game. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy some great titles on your Xbox 360 for a cheap price, then you should download these games.

If you were to purchase Mass Effect from Best Buy, it would cost you $19.99. These titles might be older, but they’re still great if you haven’t tried them before. I’ve included a brief review of Mass Effect from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

This review is short but sweet. Get Mass Effect now if : you remotely enjoy RPG’s AND/OR are a science fiction aficionado. Enough said.

These games may not be discounted for very long, so if you want them, get them as soon as you can. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

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.

Prima Games Freebie: Free Destiny eGuide ($10 Value)

Are you among one of the lucky ones to have either picked up or received a copy of the much anticipated Destiny game? Even if you haven’t and are planning on getting it in the near future, you are most certainly going to want to redeem this freebie from Prima Games. Enter the code below to get the full Destiny eGuide for free! It’s regular price is of $9.99 and you will need to sign up for a Prima Games account in order to redeem the code (it’s free and only takes a minute).

Click here to get the Destiny eGuide for free @ PrimaGames.com now

  • Coupon Code: hmnr-nqd9-d8u8-ftav
  • Discount: free Destiny eGuide
  • Expiry: Unknown

Destiny was released earlier today on September 9th 2014 and yet overwhelmingly positive reviews have already begun pouring in. Mostly praising the graphics and the beauty of the created world, reviewers have also noted the epicness of the story behind this mega-game. Why mega? Because it’s an action role-playing game that comes very close to being a MMO (massively multiplayer online game) but is instead beginning to be referred to as a shared-world shooter game instead as instead of hordes of players playing on the same servers, as in the case of World of Warcraft, for instance, players are instead matched with other players. This matchmaking does then allow for more interactivity within the game, though definitely not on the same scale as in WoW or SWOTR.

The Destiny eGuide available on Prima Games is definitely pretty cool as it’s beyond detailed. The main topics include the: field manual, the tower, earth, moon, venus, mars, armory, crucible codex, and trophies & achievements. Most of these further divide into subcategories as well. Whether this is a good thing or not is for you to decide but it has also been written in such a way that it will give away no spoilers of the games content. It is also mainly devoted to the PVE (player versus environment) but it does also cover some PVP (player versus player) aspects in the process.

Every facet of the Destiny eGuide is filled with interesting details about the game. In fact, I discovered that the class that you choose for your character will have a massive impact upon the storyline, so choose carefully! Prima Games Freebie: Free Destiny eGuide ($10 Value)

If you haven’t gotten it yet, you can get Destiny for either PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox One for just $69 at Amazon.ca (shipping will also be free as most orders over $25 are shipped for free).

Future Shop: Xbox One + Kinect + Watch Dogs LE + Forza 5 Was $650, Now $500! (Expired)

Posted by on September 2, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Future Shop: Xbox One + Kinect + Watch Dogs LE + Forza 5 Was $650, Now $500! (Expired)

Are you peering into the figurative window of next generation video game consoles? If you’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to “take the plunge” and start enjoying the latest generation of Xbox, this deal may be a perfect fit for you. At Future Shop, they’re offering a tantalizing Xbox One package, valued at $650, for only $500 - plus free shipping! Quantities are limited, so if you’re interested, I’d highly recommend purchasing this as soon as you can.

This great package includes the Xbox One system, Kinect sensor, the limited edition version of Watch Dogs, and a download code for Forza Motorsport 5, all for just $500! Getting an Xbox One with these extras at this price is really something special. The system (with the Kinect sensor and Forza 5) typically retails for $500 at Future Shop and Best Buy. Watch Dogs LE usually sells for $150 at Future Shop, but it’s currently on sale for $100.

I’ll admit it – I was very close to purchasing an Xbox One when it originally launched back in November. I really enjoy playing my Xbox 360 (when I have the time to kick back and relax a bit, of course), and I figured that the next generation of Xbox would be just as great. However, what made me rethink my decision was the fact that the system isn’t backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games. Also, their catalogue of available games wasn’t deep enough for me (as is the case with most video game consoles around their launch date).

Watch Dogs has been one of the most anticipated games of the year, and this package from Future Shop will easily please any gamer – especially if it ends up being a Christmas present! I’ve included a brief review of Watch Dogs from Shacknews below:

Watch Dogs could’ve easily been Grand Theft Auto with tech equipment. But Ubisoft Montreal has managed to flesh out this experience as something more, making fantastic use of the technology and applying it just right to deliver a remarkably deep experience.

Is the time right to buy an Xbox One? It really depends on your gaming preferences. If you’re a Mario fan, stick with the Wii U, since it has a plethora of great games on the horizon, like Super Smash Bros. U. If you prefer a more serious gaming experience, then the Xbox One may be the right choice for you. Plus, Halo 5 is coming out next year, and I’m sure that Microsoft has plenty of other surprises up its sleeve.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers! Quantities are limited, so get this deal while you still can!

WagJag Canada: $149 For An Xbox 360 Console & Free Shipping ($339 Value)

WagJag Canada: $149 For An Xbox 360 Console & Free Shipping ($339 Value)

I love it when WagJag Canada offers electronic deals and right now they have a great one.  Get a refurbished Xbox 360 Console for just $149.

Here is what you will get with this deal:

  • Xbox 360 S Console with 250GB hard drive
  • Xbox 360 wireless controller
  • Xbox 360 headset
  • Xbox 360 composite A/V cable (for using your Xbox with standard definition TVs)
  • 30-day exchange warranty on defective products

If you were to price compare this unit to other stores such as Best Buy, you will see that this is the best all-around price offered. I love the fact that the Xbox 360 can play games, and you can also use the wifi on it to go on Youtube, and even store your favourite movies, music, TV shows and pictures on it as well.  It is so much more than just a gaming system.

You will only be able to buy one per person, but you can buy extra as gifts for others.  Additionally, you will not have to pay a cent for the cost of shipping or taxes, so the final cost with no hidden charges is just $149.

Microsoft Store Canada: Pre-order xBox One + Titanfall + 1 Month xBox Live Gold For $499

Posted by on February 24, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Microsoft Store Canada: Pre order xBox One + Titanfall + 1 Month xBox Live Gold For $499

Get the xBox One, Titanfall and a month of xBox Live Gold for $499 from Microsoft!

The price of this item isn’t a sale, per se. The bundle’s regular price is $499. The deal here is that they are still selling the xBox One by itself for the same price. The game that comes with it, Titanfall, retails for $59.99.  If you were planning on getting this game along with an xBox One (I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t get this game) then you’re saving about $60. If you weren’t planning on getting it, well, I can’t help you. You’re broken.

You also get a month of xBox Live Gold, which you need in order to play Titanfall. Titanfall is a mix of a single player story mode game and an online game. Basically you are playing through story mode but the other people in your team are online, not computer controlled. And it has giant mechs. I love giant mechs.

Microsoft made a point of mentioning the Titanfall packaging. Not a special Titanfall skin over the console itself or the controller. No, no. The box. I don’t know why in the world they would mention that but some marketing goon thought it was important so I figured I’d mention it here too. Maybe it’ll sell more consoles. I dunno.

This is a pre-order so it doesn’t come out until 11th March 2014. Shipping is free and you don’t have to get it at Microsoft Store. Other places like Amazon Canada  have it available too.
