The long weekend is so close that I can almost taste the hamburgers on the barbecue. I'm in full planning mode and already can't wait to finally get out to the beach for a little Canada Day fun.
There's just one more thing on my shopping list before we can head out there ... and that's a portable speaker. For some reason, I actually don't own one right now, but that's about to change. I just found a TON of speakers on sale at The Source, and here's the best part: a bunch of them are waterproof!
I've always known that waterproof speakers existed, but summer is really their time to shine. Now you can pull up a playlist when you're at the beach or by the pool – and not even worry about ruining your electronics.
This JBL Flip 4 Portable Bluetooth Speaker, for instance, is $30 off. It's completely waterproof and works in all weather conditions – so you can keep the tunes going, even in the rain. It is sold out online, but there's always a chance you'll find it in-store. Or who knows? Maybe The Source will restock soon!
A few other speakers – like the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker – are even smaller and can be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes. Others, however, are splash-proof, which means it's probably safe to have them by the pool, but you shouldn't bring them along on your unicorn floatie.
One more thing to keep in mind is that while these speakers are okay around water, they're not sand-proof. So if you bring yours to the beach, make sure it stays on your blanket or over by the grass.
Of course, these aren't the only things included in the Red Tag Sale at The Source. You can also pick up select smartwatches and activity trackers from $159.99 – and I even found one of my absolute favourite things, this pair of second-generation Bose QuietComfort 35 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones, for $50 off.
At The Source, most orders over $35 will ship for free, but there may be additional charges for larger items like TVs and home theatre systems. You can also have select items shipped to a store for free.
