    Anybody seen an article on all the Canadian Black Friday deals yet? I know other years media outlets have published big lists of the upcoming sales.

    Guess there's no chance the Switch is on sale in Canada eh? Think it'd have a sale on Boxing Day?

    I doubt it. I think the Wii U may have gone on sale like once the entire time it was relevant. Nintendo stuff just doesn't really go on sale.

    Amazon has it 50% off. Should be the same discount on Xbox live too.

    Just got one a couple days ago, and wish I had heard about them before I bought a crock pot and a rice steamer a couple years ago.

    So far, I've made a beef barley vegetable soup and boiled some potatoes (to then mash). It's been great both times, although the amount of steam released when manually opening the valve after being pressurized...:eek:

    Anybody have any thoughts on an Apple iPhone 7+ with 256 GB for $25/month for 24 months from Verizon today?

    I've been holding out for a decent deal on an 8/8+ this season, but that might be too good to pass up.

    Amazon.ca Prime Members take note that the 20% pre-sale offer is now to 10% percent instead of having the savings for the first two weeks of release, it's now until the game drops.

    basically amazon.ca prime is making you wonder that with nothing being guaranteed as a prime release date and not a lot of prime only options what the point is of having prime

    I feel I need to say it for the millionth time but I own the closed back version of those headphones and the bass is extremely weak. There are better wireless headphones for a similar price

    For the price, they're just alright, and they're certainly not worth more than what their supposed msrp is, though they're basically on sale year round.

    What? You can't characterize Civ games after II as anything like Age of Empires...they're not even the same type of game.

    Thanks for the heads up! I've been meaning to pick it up and I think this is probably the cheapest it'll get.

    I had an old Vizio soundbar back in the day, probably 6 years ago, it was so bulky, but it was like $70 dollars from NewEgg. It was just OK.

    I would love to hear if anyone has recent experience with Soundbars.

    I have a JBL soundbar/sub system. It's extremely nice but it was $400. I love it though. It's great for movies, gaming and using it as a bluetooth speaker for my phone.

    I guess I can't recommend spending $400 on a soundbar unless you've got the money to spare, but generally I know JBL is a nice brand. Unfortunately I don't know what other brands are good or not right now though.
