*** Contest now closed, winner was Darci! ***

Hello Moosers! We’re starting a new contest today and we’re going to be giving out lots of lovely prizes to many of you. We’ve got our hands on ten $50 gift cards to spend online at, and we’ll be giving them out in a series of contests over the next 10 days. As well as the gift cards each day, we’re also going to be setting up a daily hot deal, which you might want to take advantage of.

I know Halloween isn’t even over yet, but I am already starting to consider my holiday shopping. I’ve begun to make a list of the deals I want to find, a list of items for which I will be hunting for my kids, nieces and nephews. Hopefully these ten days of deal will give you some inspiration for your shopping list too. We’ll have deals on all sorts of computers and electronics from

First of all, today’s daily deal is a sweet price on the Acer M5-481PT laptop computer:

Deal of the Day:Acer M5-481PT-6666 Intel Core i5 3317U(1.70GHz) 6GB Memory 128GB SSD 14" Notebook Windows 8

  • Newegg promo code:  BM1025
  • Discount: $300 (from $999 to $699)
  • Shipping: $9.99
  • Coupon Expiry: 26th October 2013

If you’re interested, just click through to the link above and check it out. It looks like a decently specced laptop for home use, and it’s a handy discount amount.

On to the contest!

If you want to be in with the chance of winning one of the $50 gift cards today, just leave a comment below telling us when you do your holiday shopping. Have you started yet? When do you plan to do so? Have a chat below. :)

Rules: This part of the contest ends 26th October 2013, Canadian entrants only, one entry per household, winner chosen at random

Check back each and every day for the next 10 days to see all the hot electronics deals from, as well as giving you the chance to win one of the ten $50 gift cards! Don’t forget to subscribe to our email updates as they will alert you about each day of the contest too.

    A $50 gift card would be awesome!! I haven't started my holiday shopping yet, I usually do it around the 2nd week of December.

        I'm starting to do my holiday shopping now and I usually do most of it online. I don't like being in the malls in December!
        • Kelly P.
          I started shopping for all the kids, got most of it done already. I love Christmas. Cheers.

            We usually do our Christmas shopping in November and we are doing most of it online now. Very convenient way to shop.

              50$ card is great! but a 50$ gc is even better because of the great deals going on there! as a tech geek would love to pick up something at a 50$ disc! :D

                I usually do my shopping at the beginning of December, and I love shopping online. Fingers crossed for this gift card =)

                  I already started beginning of September - I saw some online deals at Toys R Us and couldn't resist! I'm hoping to do a lot of it online, then a mad rush in store for leftover gifts.

                    I didn't start my shopping. I am probably doing it mid november.
                    • Paloma
                      I usually do my Christmas shopping late November to early December!!
                      • Deborah
                        I have got my Christmas shopping started but usually end up getting that 'last' present on December 24!

                          I shop throughout the year by having a "Gift Ideas" bookmark folder, where I save pages of items I think might be good for different people, so I can look back at that for inspiration when gifting time comes around. Because of online shopping, I can't leave everything to the last-minute anymore because it needs time to ship, so now I try to be finished at least 2 weeks before Christmas! :)

                            I haven't started shopping yet but I really should!

                              Haven't started, usually do it last minute, unfortunately!
                              • Amber

                                • Kitty
                                  Haven't started mine. Will do just a month before Christmas when there's better deals around.

                                    Believe it or not, I'm almost finished my Christmas shopping - AND wrapping! This year I've been wrapping as I purchase things (and keeping a list to keep track) and it's been going GREAT! Last year I did a lot of early wrapping and it made December SO enjoyable. Happy Holidays everyone!

                                      I'm hoping to do some Christmas shopping during Black Friday sales.

                                        Wow, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Bargainmouse is fantastic. Truly a site that helps Canadians on everyday shopping. As for the holidays, it really depends on when I have enough to pick something up...

                                          I started planning for xmas in September. $50 would go a long way towards my gift-giving. Thanks Bargain Moose!
