Tim Hortons in the US (and hopefully Canada with some good pressure from us Canadian customers) will be fashioning 24 of their best flavoured timbits into a ‘bouquet’ on Sunday, May 14 to help celebrate Mother’s Day, but again, this offer will only be available at participating locations that are south of the border.
The bouquet will cost $7.99 and will include flavours like Cinnamon Sugar, Apple Fritter, Old Fashioned Plain, Chocolate Glazed, and Honey Dip.
Would you buy a Mother’s Day timbit bouquet if they were being offered north of the border?
Flying nowadays has become a pricey endeavour. Between needing to pay for checked bags, extra bags or even carry-on bags, it sometimes feels like hopping in your car and driving might be the more budget friendly option – though this option won’t really get you across the Atlantic/Pacific. WestJet Canada has recently recognized that their low-cost carrier services that initially made them so popular in 1996 when they first opened have become difficult to maintain, especially with their more than a 100 worldwide destinations and state-of-the-art aircrafts.
That is why WestJet has decided to launch a new ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) at the end of 2017. This ULCC is a kind of carrier that has become more popular in the past few years with other airlines. The airline essentially strips a flight of all the additional frills to a very low price, and then with each additional ‘frill’ you add to your flight (e.g. airport check-in fee, checked baggage, etc.) you will add an additional expense to your flight.
The carriers are also more densely packed than regular airlines, but the prices are much cheaper than others making those tighter quarters more bearable. WestJet has yet to give an official name to this ULCC, but they have said that they plan to launch officially by the end of 2017, hopefully in time for you to begin booking inexpensive holiday travel.
The internet blew up last week following the surprise (and tongue-in-cheek serious) premiere of season three for the hit Adult Swim cartoon, Rick and Morty. Though the show premiered on April 1st, the content of what the show discussed – that is, the fabled szechuan sauce that was retired from McDonald’s menu in the late 90s – is gearing up to have some real world consequences.
In the show, the main character Rick (an alcoholic, mad scientist) admits that the Pandora’s box for all his crotchety and time travelling behavior was the discontinuing of McDonald’s szechuan sauce. Since then, he has been on a mission to bring the sauce back into his life.
For those of you not familiar with the Rick and Morty universe, you can check out a clip from the most recent episode here for more context:
But for those of you who either don’t trust the ‘suits’ behind the Golden Arch or can’t wait for McDonald’s to re-release the szechuan sauce (some Twitter followers speculate 2018 might be the perfect time to re-launch the sauce, as Disney’s live action Mulan will also be coming out in 2018), here’s a video tutorial that can show you how to make a homemade, copy-cat version:
Sears Canada is always offering great free gift offers, but I usually read the fine print of the offers before throwing away my hard earned pay cheque as there can sometimes be qualifications that may not be as beneficial for me as they would for others. Today’s gift offer, however, is one that I’m sure most of us could stand to benefit from as they’re giving away a 7-piece Lancome gift, valued to be worth $142, when you buy 2 Lancome products, with one of them being a skin care product.
Of all the organs in the human body, your skin is arguably one of the most important ones to be taking care of as we quite literally see it everyday, which also means that it’s exposed to the harsh elements everyday too. So the fact that Sears asks that we have one of our qualifying items be a skin care product is really a good thing to be encouraging. I picked up this Bienfait Multi-Vital Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30 ($62), as you can never have enough UV protection, and this Exfoliance Confort Cream ($39) to qualify for the free 7-piece gift.
My total would’ve been $101, had I not used the MARCH20 promo code, which will save you $20 off on purchases of $100+; alternatively, if you manage to break the $200 threshold, you can take $50 off with the promo code MARCH50.
Sears offers FREE shipping on all orders that are $99 or more.
