Pampers has released their bonus Gifts to Grow Valentines code below, worth 10 points. My little cupids and I had a big day at the Early Years Center and now they’re all worn out so supermommy can spend some time with superdaddy.
Vista Print is now offering $7.99 flat rate shipping. This is for 14 day standard delivery, which in my experience living in southern Ontario was much faster probably about only 4 days. If you click here you can get a free calendar (just pay shipping) and below I’ve listed a few half price deals they have going on.
The pictured bibs above that were sold at Dollarama have been recalled because “…the bibs’ lining contains a phthalate, specifically DEHP (Di(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate), which exceeds the allowable limit.
Studies suggest that certain phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing phthalates are sucked or chewed for extended periods.
Neither Health Canada nor Dollarama has received any reports of incidents or illnesses related to the use of these bibs.”
In addition to the Lego snowman/penguin event @ToysRUs hosted earlier today they have quite a few more deals running throughout the week that I’ve listed below. See the full flyer here.

Westjet announced today that they will launch a small regional fleet by the end of 2013.
WestJet confirmed Wednesday it will launch a low-fare, no frills regional airline, intensifying competition in smaller domestic markets with rival Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) for business and leisure class travellers.
“It’s the next logical step in WestJet’s evolution,” president and CEO Gregg Saretsky said on a conference call Wednesday.

So what are your big Valentines plans? I’m taking my oldest to the early years center. Can’t believe my youngest will be 11 months. Hoping daddy has some surprises in store for me, I got something special for him but just in case he decides to read the blog I’m keeping it top secret.
@MichaelsStores has some pretty sweet Valentines day specials next weekend.
Next from 1-3pm on February 4 they will be holding a Wilton cake decorating demo specifically highlighting ‘floral sprays’. They also have a deal going on where if you sign up for 4 weeks of Wilton cake decorating classes you can bring a friend free, which is $45 in savings. Offer ends February 11, 2012.

Pampers has released a 5 point bonus code for their Gifts To Grow program through Twitter. I’m less than 500 points to that big wheel tricycle and cannot wait to see the look on my sons face when he gets it for his second birthday in April. Every little bit helps.
