Toot Toot! Canadian Coupon Train!

bcteagirl is starting a Canadian coupon train 🙂

Canada's Coupon Train

Thanks for the dazzling idea bcteagirl 🙂 and sorry for stealing the title 😉

If you don’t know what/how a coupon train works, has a clear explanation:

A coupon train is a great way to get coupons you can use and pass along the ones you can’t use.

How does a coupon train work?

When someone decides to start a train, this person is called the Conductor. The Conductor will set all the rules for the train — name of the train, how many passengers, how many coupons, and what type of train it is going to be (see below for types of coupon trains). The Conductor will make a post in the Train Forum setting the rules, and if you are interested in joining their train, you will send them your NAZ and they will add you to the list.

Once the list has the set number of passengers, the Conductor will make up an envie of coupons and send them out to the first person on the train list, with an enclosed list of all the other passengers. When the first person on the train receives the envie, they will take out all the coupons they think they can use, and take out any expired coupons, or soon to expire coupons. Then they add any coupons they can’t use and send it off to the next person after them. This continues until the last person on the train sends it back to the conductor and the train is complete. Usually then the conductor will ask if all the passengers would like to go around again.

There are many different types of trains people create:

*Baby Train – This train only involves baby coupons

*Pet Train – This only involves pet coupons

*Non-Insert Train – This train only has coupons that are not found in the Sunday paper inserts

*Food Only Train – This train contains only food coupons

*Potluck Train – This is a train that has a little bit of everything.

There is also a Round Robin train, which is a bit more complicated, but a lot of fun. The way this works is the Conductor will gather a list of people who wish to join the train. The conductor will assign everyone a NAZ, and instead of just the conductor mailing out one envie to the first person, everyone will mail out an envie on a set date to the NAZ assigned to him or her. When you receive your envie from the person who was assigned your NAZ, you will take out the coupons you want, take out all the expired coupons, and add any coupons you don’t want and send it to your assigned NAZ. The result of this is everyone on the train will be receiving and mailing out coupons every couple days, as opposed to a regular train where it might take several weeks to make a round because it has to wait and go to each person one at a time.

If you are new to the whole coupon train idea, then I suggest being a passenger on a couple of them first, until you get the hang of how they work.

Rogers and Bell Canada to offer free Unlimited Cell Phone & Landline Phone Calls

This info is fresh off the oven. I had a meeting with some of the guys working at Bell Mobility yesterday and they mentioned that they’ll be offering a bundle/package where users can place as many calls as they wish for free. They also mentioned that Rogers will have a very similar offer. Here is how it will work:

You’ll need to buy a bundle from say Bell. For example you must have your landline phone, cell phone and Internet service all through them (sorry I don’t know what the bundles will include, maybe Internet won’t be necessary, I’m just guessing). You can then place free calls to any phone number (including cell phones) that are subscribed to Bell.

So here’s a possible scenario and I’ll use Rogers for my example coz they are well known for their cell phone services. Let’s say your parents subscribe to a Rogers bundle and you do the same. You will be able to phone your parents or other Rogers subscribers on their cell phone or Rogers digital home phone for free anytime of the day as long as both of you are in Canada.

This can end up saving you $$$ especially if you talk on your cell phone a lot. The only drawback is that Bell, Rogers and Telus will not cooperate so placing a phone call between two different providers will be costly.

VIP Student Price Card (SPC) for non-Students


I posted this a long long time ago so thought I’d post it here again for those who missed it the first time round.

So you’re not a student but you still want to make use of the loads of shopping benefits the Student Price Card (SPC) offers? Here’s the solution:

Subscribe to Lou Lou magazine for 1 year for $17.95 here and you’ll get an SPC VIP card. On this VIP card it says “Student ID Not Required VIP”.

Even for $17.95 (instead of $10 for the regular SPC) I still think this card is worth it. You’ll also get Lou Lou magazine which in my honest opinion is one of the more interesting and useful magazines out there. I think it’s much better than Roger Publishing’s other fashion magazine, Flare.

To get this VIP SPC card and Lou Lou subscribe here
