*** Contest now closed, winner was Mooser Theresa!! ***

Enter this week’s contest for a chance to win a Toshiba Satellite 15.6” laptop from The Source Canada, a $469.99 value!

Here are some of the key features for this Bargainmoose prize:

August is a bittersweet month. It’s a month that bums me out because it indicates that summer is coming to an end, but on the other hand it’s also a month that I look forward to for the great “Back to School” deals.

The Source has many Back to School savings this month on electronics and accessories. To facilitate finding these deals they’ve created 3 pages, which are Back to School Tech, Dorm Essentials, and Accessorize your Tech.  In the Back to School Tech section you’ll find items like our Toshiba Satellite laptop contest prize, tablets and printers. Dorm Essentials features small appliances and speakers. Accessorize your Tech includes items like laptop bags, headphones and keyboards. Additionally, this week The Source is featuring a “5 days of dorm crashers” event. Be sure to visit their homepage everyday as they’ll be announcing one special item for sale on a daily basis. The Day 1 deal is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 16GB for only $289.99. To compare, I found it for $299.17 at Staples and $305 at

If you’d like to find more promos from The Source, you can do so by signing up to their newsletter when you register for an account with them, and by checking out their Bargainmoose coupon page.

    I need a new laptop because I do not have a computer! My kids have iPads and I have my phone only because they never let me have enough time on their iPads to do anything except check Bargainmoose once a day! I need something to print coupons from and to have my own time to check out more of your deals! Love your page! It is my daily fix! :)

    I need a new laptop as my old computer is soo old and slow it takes 10 minutes to load anything so I don't even bother using it. I use my phone instead but with an iPhone it's virtually impossible to do anything that requires flash and the screen is soo small it's hard to play any games for a long period of time.
  • Moe A.
    I've never owned one before. I think it's about time, right?
  • Leslie

  • Monyra S.
    I am in desperate need of a new laptop since my first one perished this April from long term complications from a fall back in February 2013. While running late for a midterm, crazy Edmonton weather strikes again. In my need to rid myself of this dreadful test, up pops a piece of ice hidden under a fresh layer of snow. I did not fall at this point ... I flew. Saw my legs up in the air. In an attempt to save my back, I had to sacrifice my first child.. My beautiful laptop. This is why I need a new laptop. Not to replace my first but to try and fill this void in my soul.
  • Ivan
    I need a new laptop because school is starting and it would definately help me a lot!

  • Julie
    Our current laptop (I'm pretty sure) weighs at LEAST 10 pounds! It is also at the stage of its life where it is trying to die but we won't give up on taping the power cord to the side of the laptop at just the right angle so that it can get a good enough connection to run.
  • Kat K.
    I need a new laptop because mine keeps freezing up and it's slowing down my work. It's driving me crazy!

  • Dream24
  • Leigh
    My computer is getting older and my kids are starting to need a good computer to do their homework on.
  • Irene
    I need a new laptop, because over a year ago, I spilt an entire glass of water all over the keyboard and inside of the cpu. I let it dry upside down overnight, and I lost some features like WiFi, and abut 5 letters do not work on the keyboard. I now have to hard wire to the modem and use an external keyboard which doesn't make it portable. Also, the fan is always running and humming away which I think is not a good sign. I would love to have a new laptop, and I swear that I will never drink any liquids near it again!
  • David
    I need a new laptop because then I wouldn't have to fight with my wife to use the only one computer we have. And, I can go on all I want.

  • Jonnie
    I need this laptop for my 14 year old son for back to school. He's going into grade 9 and so much of their work has to be done online that it would be wonderful if he had his own laptop he could use at home and school to keep all his assignments together and organized. He did have a laptop but it started running really slow and now it won't connect to the internet!
  • Cheryl I.
    I'd love a new one because mine is soooooo slow!

    As a single mother, employed part time, I have very limited funds. Thus I coupon a lot and bargainmoose is perfect for that. :) However I don't have any computer and must always go to a siblings place to use their computer and Internet. Winning this contest would be huge for me as it would save me so much time and I would own my own laptop. Just amazing. It would help in so many ways. I hope I win. :) :)
  • Karen
    This would be great!
