The Toronto Maple Leafs have partnered with Rogers for a second annual Winter Week – a weeklong celebration of hockey alongside Leafs Nation!
They’re starting Winter Week with a free Toronto Maple Leafs Sport Chek Open Practice at Ryerson’s Mattamy Athletic Centre, where the full Leafs team will take to the ice for practice. Then after a few more days in Toronto, they’re taking Winter Week on the road to Guelph, Barrie & Muskoka. They end the Winter Week journey back in Toronto with the Marlies Family Day Game at Air Canada Centre.
Join the Toronto Maple Leafs for free events, on-ice and off-ice activities, giveaways, chances to meet members of the Leafs Alumni, win prizes, enjoy viewing parties of Maple Leafs games and more from today, February 13th to 19th, 2018.

So why not get ahead of the game and grab your sweetheart, friend, relative or roomie a gift before the big day is already upon us and you find yourself running to the drug store to buy from the picked over selection?
The best place to get your gift for anyone who you think deserves being alerted to how much you care for them is definitely going to be the Hudson’s Bay Canada, as they’re offering not just the classics, like chocolate and treats, but they’re also offering some more unique offers that will surely crack a smile on your sweetheart’s face.
The Hudson’s Bay offers FREE shipping on orders that are $45+ (or $29+ on beauty purchases) when you pay with your Hudson’s Bay credit card, or $99+ (or $49+ on beauty purchases) when you pay with any other form of tender.

Saturday, February 17th, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.:
Boycott Boring Play Day Event:
Join us for the first Toys “R” Us Play Day of 2018. Play Day is the ultimate family event with fun activities for the whole family!
Exciting games, make and takes, giveaways and more!
Activites may vary by store. Recommended for kids 3 and up. All giveaways are available while they last and distributed to participants only.
Sign up in-store for R Club and save 15% on your purchase(s)!
Valid in-store only on regular priced items on February 17, 2018, only. Exclusions apply, see associate for details. Limit one coupon per transaction. This coupon is not redeemable for cash. Valid at any Toys “R” Us or Babies”R” Canada.
Starting today, your old Shoppers Optimum and PC Plus cards will no longer be valid as the two loyalty reward programs will be merging to rebrand as PC Optimum.
PC Optimum will largely still function the same way that the other two rewards programs ran, but you will need to download the new app and trade-in for new cards in order to begin collecting points.
You will also need to register your card online at PC Optimum. After you’ve completed all of these steps, you’re well on your way to take advantage of exclusive offers and events.
The collection of the points in this new program will run the same, but the way that those points can be redeemed will be a bit different.
For those of you who were part the PC Plus program, the redemption of 20,000 points will still be equal to $20, however the minimum threshold for redeeming those points has been dropped to just 10,000 (before it was 20,000).
Within the Shoppers Optimum program, the online calculator for converting from Shoppers Optimum points to the new program shows that if you have 95,000 Shoppers points that will now equal 170,000 new points. And in the new program, 170,000 works out to be $170 worth of rewards.
When you are collecting points in the new program, every dollar you spend will provide you with 15 PC Optimum points, which is much better than the old Shoppers Optimum program as $1 only provided 10 points.
Are you excited about the new changes that Loblaws is making to their rewards program?
If you’re a person who lives in fear that kids nowadays won’t ever get to experience the textile joy that was building your first LEGO set, or that they’ll never fully appreciate the haptic feedback relief of playing a real-life piano rather than tapping a simulated LED version on the screen of their smartphone, then you’ll be relieved to hear what Nintendo Canada has up their sleeve.
Starting in April 20, 2018, you’ll be able to pick up Nintendo Labo DIY cardboard kits to complement your Nintendo Switch system.
How these cardboard corrugated creations will work is actually quite ingenious. If you buy the Variety Kit, your child will have the opportunity to build five different toy-con creations, including a piano, 2 RC cars, a fishing rod, a house or a motorbike. Once you connect your Nintendo Switch to these hand-crafted toys, you’ll be able to continue the fun by either holding a recital or competing in a race.
The other kit available will be the toy-con Robot Kit, which will be a kit that provides you with the instructions to make a cool robot suit that can also be connected to your Nintendo Switch to extend the fun outside of the box.
These Nintendo Labo’s will start at about $69.99 USD and we’ll be sure to update this post once there are announcements of where these cardboard delights will begin being sold in Canada.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and so Dairy Queen Canada is heating up their offers to reflect products that will be more suitable for the loving occasion.
The first new product that they will be offering for the month of February is one that will attract those who like it hot. Right now, you can pick up either 4-piece or six-piece honey hot glazed chicken strips, which will be made with none other than Frank’s Red Hot sauce. This order will come with fries and a ranch sauce, and if you opt for the six-piece it’ll make for a nice snack to split before heading to the movies for a date night.
The second St. Valentine-themed offer from Dairy Queen is the new Ultimate Choco Brownie Blizzard Cupid Cake. This cake will be starting at $9.99, and though it’s marketed as being ‘perfectly split’ between two, I’m sure that if you are celebrating an independent Valentine’s Day, it would also be perfectly acceptable in an individual sized portion.
And since it’s February, Dairy Queen will be bringing back the Chocolate Xtreme Blizzard as their blizzard of the month.
Instead of labelling it a New Year’s sale, Wicker Emporium Canada is billeting their 2018 sale as a The Dead of Winter Sale. This is perhaps because they have made some landslide markdowns, with items being reduced by 70% to 80% off the original price.
No matter if you’re looking for some extra furnishings to finish off your living room, or if you’re looking for some fine wood craftmanship for your bedroom, there is something for everyone in this end of season clearance sale. Stylish retro high back chairs are selling for as little as $449.99 (was $899), while minimalist six drawer dressers made of acacia wood are being sold for just $799.99 (was $1,599.99).
This sale will be available for a limited time or while product remains in-stock.
Wicker Emporium Canada offers FREE shipping on all orders that are shipped to a local Wicker Emporium store, or you can have your order shipped to your house but shipping cost will be calculated at checkout.
Bench Canada has an amazing mid-season sale going on right now where you can save up to 70% off on the entire site! Within both the men’s and women’s sale section you can save an additional 40% off, and this discount will automatically be applied at checkout so there’s no need to memorize a pesky promo or coupon code.
What’s even more impressive than the extra 40% off sale offer, where you can grab t-shirts for as little as $17.99 and sweatshirts for as little as $57, is that there’s another sale going on at Bench where you can actually save on new arrivals. Right now, when you head over to Bench Canada, you can save 30% off on the all new Cruise Collection for both men and women.
Similar to all of the other sales going on at Bench Canada right now, the Cruise Collection will have the final discount reflected in the basket – with no promo code needed. For instance, this Hoodie with Bench Logo on the Chest is regularly being sold for $119, but once you add it to your cart you’ll see the hoodie automatically drop to costing just $83.30.
On top of all of these sales, Bench is also offering a deal where you can pick up one pack of underwear and get your second pack for half-off. Normally, one pack of underwear would cost $29, so if you were to grab two pairs in this offer it would make each pack drop in price to cost just $21.75.
All of these offers from Bench Canada will only be available for a limited time only.
Bench offers FREE shipping on all orders that are $99 or more.
Apple Canada has issued an official apology to their customers after officially admitting to have intentionally slowed down some of their older models of iPhones and in exchange for their apology they are also offering customers a reduced fee of out-of-warranty battery replacements for all affected models.
The statement that Apple issued offered more details about an ongoing issue which has seen the company admit to having implemented measures that made the update from iOS 10.2.1 hinder the performance of iPhone models like SE, 6, 6Plus, 6s and 6s Plus.
Apple continued in their statement that they would never “intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades.”
Currently, the company is contesting a power management feature that was originally introduced in the iOS 10.2.1, which came out with the iPhone 6 and 6s. The power management feature was part of an initiative to reduce the number of unexpected shutdowns that were the result of high power draws.
However, despite these claims, Apple has been on the receiving end of a number of lawsuits that claim that the company intentionally messed around with customers products to purposefully slow down older iPhone models.
In their supporting document, Apple claims that:
A chemically aged battery also becomes less capable of delivering peak energy loads, especially in a low state of charge, which may result in a device unexpectedly shutting itself down in some situations.
The power management features that Apple is discussing are ones that will be added to newer models of iPhones, regardless of their model.
Issues of slower speeds began to surface this past fall when Apple claims they began receiving reports from customers that they were witnessing slower speeds in their Apple products. The company says that initially they believed this was in part to blame for the software updates involved with the products, plus there were some minor unaddressed bugs in iOS 11, however they now believe it may be the result of chemical aging of the batteries.
To relieve the possible woes of customers, Apple has said they will make several changes, including a price for out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacements, which is being dropped from $79 to $29. This change will last from late January through to December 2018.
Apple also plans to provide additional feedback on the price drop in the future, but they say it will apply to anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery requires replacing.
In addition to the reduced battery price, Apple has made the additional move to become more transparent by providing an iOS update that will include new features that give users more visibility into the health of their iPhone’s battery. This way, they say, customers will be able to clearly see whether the state of the battery is affecting performance.
We will continue to provide coverage of this topic as thing develop in the future.

Dyson Canada is having a massive Boxing Week Event where you’ll be able to save up to $120 off on some of 2017’s best and brightest vacuum cleaners available on the market. There are quite a few models to choose from in this sale, but be sure to give a quick read of the specifics of each vacuum before settling on a purchase as they are all best-suited to different house needs (e.g. carpet home vs. hardwood home or small apartment home vs. big home with many flights of stairs).
I will point out, however, that Best Buy Canada is also selling some of these select Dyson vacuum cleaners for similar prices, but the best deals by far are going to be found on the Dyson homesite. I would only recommend also checking out the Best Buy selection if you were already planning on buying something else from them that you couldn’t get from Dyson.
This Boxing Week sale will only be available for a limited time at Dyson.
The semi-annual clearance sale has landed at La Senza Canada, which is great news for anyone who may have not have gotten all the undergarments they needed checked off on their Christmas wish list this year. Within this semi-annual sale, you’ll be able to grab essentials like bras for $8.99 and 8panties for only $30 while lingerie is being discounted by up to 50% off the regular price.
If you were looking for a really good steal, then you might consider checking out this light push-up no wire bra, which would normally cost $29.99 but right now can be purchased for just $9.99. Couple that bra with a eight pairs of these ultra comfortable and seamless thong panties, and you will only have to pay an additional $24, though typically all of these panties would cost $60!
This semi-annual clearance sale will only be around for a limited time, and quantities will be limited.
La Senza Canada offers FREE shipping on all orders that are $75 or more.
