While Iâ€™ll continue to blog about deals and offers as usual, sheâ€™ll be blogging about different interesting topics from fashion to humour to daily life … and deals too of course. So one thing is for sure, youâ€™ll be getting more interesting and dynamic content and many more deals 🙂
I updated the â€œAboutâ€ section. Iâ€™ll add more to it later.
After yesterdayâ€™s awesome deal Iâ€™m not surprised that todayâ€™s Future Shop deal is not that good.
Digimate 27″ Widescreen LCD HDTV for $499.99 (regular price $799.99). It’s a cheap brand and I just wouldn’t go for it. Also note that it’s more like Â Wait until the fall and you’ll get simillar prices on many 27″ monitors.
Great deals on two magnificent mice. They are cordless which a huge plus but at the same time theyâ€™ll operate on AA batteries which can be an annoyance.
The Microsoft mouse comes with theÂ batteries but it lacks many of the extra buttons in the Logitech mouse. The extra buttons can significantly improve your Internet browsing, music and document editing experience and therefore I recommend the Logitech Mouse.
The Logitech MediaPlay Cordless Mouse is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. First, it has all the features you need to use it as your everyday mouse: smooth optical tracking, clutter-free cordless freedom, extra navigation buttons, and a powerful scroll/tilt wheel that lets you scroll up and down, left and right, and in and out.
And when you’re ready to relax, the MediaPlay mouse relaxes with you. Back-lit extra buttons like play/pause, forward/back, and volume up/down let you control your media player with almost no effort. You can also hold it like a remote control and use it away from your desk thanks to the expanded cordless range. Its wireless mini receiver elininates clutter and installs instantly.Â And 6 months of battery life mean more music and video with fewer interruptions! Available in two color combinations:Â silver/blue and black/red
You can call or visit your local The Bay Lancome counter to book a complimentary Colour Design makeover and receive a free Miracle so Magic perfume and Bi-Facil eye makeup remover sample. More details here.
If you google: i hate rbc
SmartCanucks.ca comes in as the second search result. Thatâ€™s very funny considering that I never actually said â€œI hate rbcâ€â€¦ I said â€œAlthough I hate RBCâ€™s rigid account options I love their service and find it to be much better than that of TDâ€.
No Iâ€™m not kidding!Â Yes, this lovely strategy game is reduced to $9.99! (regular price $59.99)Â but hurry up before they run out of stock.
Some of you might argue that this game can be downloaded – illegally -Â via torrents. Other than the ethical issues and the fact that the developers put tremendous effort into the game, I just wanted to let you know that the full version will enable you to play online multiplayer games against other humans. Pirated versions donâ€™t usually allow multiplayer gaming. I tend to enjoy multiplayer games more; Artificial Intelligence can never provide the same human experience.
This deal is part of The Sourceâ€™s Daily Circuit breaker deals.
When I first saw this deal I was like, â€œwow! 21â€ monitor for $349.99! what a bargain!â€ but after reading the word â€œrefurbishedâ€ in tiny size under the picture and after remembering that we still have to pay for shipping I would say thatÂ this deal is totally useless. Letâ€™s say that you can buy the non-refurbished equivalent in-store and thus avoid refurbished monitors and shipping feesâ€¦ you have to first ask yourself… why does Future Shop have 250 refurbished HP monitors? This only means that theyâ€™re a piece of junk!
I updated the forum sections today. I grouped the electronics and non-electronics deals sections into a single section and I also added some new sections: â€œCanadian Flyersâ€, â€œContestsâ€ and â€œCouponsâ€
Youâ€™ll usually find many deals and freebies in the forum and you can also chit chat with a nice small group of friendly Canucks 🙂
And just when I felt relieved that Dellâ€™s Deals were over, jimmycanucktells us that Future Shop is having 10 days of web-only Deals ;-)Â Iâ€™ll cover these 10 days and hopefully Future Shop will have some good back to school deals.
Note that unlike Dell, Future Shopâ€™s deals start at midnight. So here is Future Shopâ€™s first deal.
Todayâ€™s Future Shop web-only deal is a Casio 5.0MP Digital Camera (EX-S500) for $199.99 (regular price $349.99). Shipping does not seem to be free anymore at Future Shop. The shipping costs will varry depending on where you live so the only way to find out isÂ by adding the cameraÂ it to your shopping cart.
I donâ€™t have a CIBC Visa card and I definitely wonâ€™t get one just for Shoppers Drug Martâ€™s lousy offers. I have an RBC Visa card and I recently got a TD Visa card (when I applied forÂ the iPod offer). Although I hate RBCâ€™s rigid account options I love their service and find it to be much better than that of TD and CIBC. Of course this may be different in your town or city, but here in Kingston thatâ€™s my overall impression.
ok ok, I know I posted about this discount before 🙂 but after Ian left a comment on my old VIA Rail post today – saying how this offer saved him a lot of money – I thought I would post it again fas a reminder and forÂ my new visitors. This offer is amazingly good: If youâ€™re an adult you get to pay less than a student’s fair!
So here is the repostâ€¦
This is by far one of the best Via Rail deals Iâ€™ve come across. If you use your visa card and book online you save 35% and thereâ€™s no catch. Purchase your ticket online with your Visa card and get a 35% discount on the adult Regular fare in Comfort class aboard VIA Rail trains anywhere across Canada. Enter your E-mail address on the VIA Rail information page and you will receive an email from VIA Rail with an eCoupon code. Use the eCoupon code to reserve online for your discounted fare on travel before October 31, 2006.
Iâ€™d like to thank everyone who’sÂ contributing to this nice friendly community 🙂
