Amazon.com (via Boxwave) has some good deals on right now for the Samsung Galaxy S3 Boxwave cases. Most cases are in the $12-$15 range, but you can save an extra $10 off of that with the promo code: LOVESGS3. This makes this a much better deal.

Note: make sure you have selected a case from Boxwave and not Amazon.com, as only Boxwave will ship these to Canada.

Amazon.ca has the SanDisk 32 GB microSD Flash Memory Card (SDSDQM-032G) on for $24 (40% off).
This is just shy of the $25 free shipping threshold, so it’s best if you can find something else worth about $1 to use as filler, if you have nothing else to order and are only planning on getting one.
If you’d prefer the class 10 version of this card, it’s $5 more and can be found here.

Quicksilver.com ships from the US, however shipping is free to Canada (for my order the $10 fee to use Purolator was waived). There is however an international handling fee you will have to pay, which will cover duties & taxes so you don’t get hit at customs. The price of this fee will vary based upon the amount you are ordering.
They offer on their website a hassle free 365 days return policy with no cost return shipping, however this is for US customers only. Canadian customers do get the 365 days, but they have to pay return shipping fees, so returning to a store if you can get to one is a much better option.

TinyDeal Important Information
Prices on this site are in US dollars and no taxes are charged. With the high exchange rate currently, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem really.
The other important issue, is that this site ships from China. The free shipping estimated delivery time is 7-25 days. People ordering from this site in the past have reported not being charged any duties or taxes on their orders when they arrived, but there is no 100% guarantee, so be aware of the situation.
Costco stores are currently clearing out the Western Digital 500 GB 2.5 inch USB 3.0 external hard drives in stores for $39.97. This is an great price for a USB 3.0 drive with a good brand name like Western Digital.
Quantities are extremely limited however, as this is a clearance item that is disappearing fast. Some stores in Ontario still have stock in decent numbers though. I’d highly recommend phoning your store first before going down.
This is the 2.5 inch unit, so it requires no external power, it draws power from the USB port. If you do not have USB 3.0 port on your computer, you can still use this unit at USB 2.0 speeds until such time as you have USB 3.0.

This months online coupon code for $5 off purchases of $30 or more online has been released for Chapters Indigo. This months coupon code is OCTOBER2012.
This qualifies your order for free shipping, as the threshold at Chapters Indigo is $25.
A good trick for maximizing your savings is to split up your order if you are going to spend $60 or more. So instead of making one larger order, make two separate orders of $30, with each being discounted by $5. They will also both ship for free as both orders would be $25. A good rule of thumb is to wait some time between orders.
There are no limits to the number of times you can use this coupon code in a month.
