So I’m flipping through the October issue of Canadian Living looking for coupons (scan for coupons first, read later) when I see the word ‘coupons’. Upon closer examination I discover that it is an article entitled “Online Coupons” by Deena Waisberg. Hmm, I wonder to myself, what sites does she list? I scan the bolded text box on the bottom right hand side of the page, pretty much assuming it’d be save.ca and the like, and what do I see but – you know what’s coming here don’tcha??? http:smartcanucks.ca !!!!!!!!! Woohoo! That’s Us!! I mean I know it’s Boo Radley (did I mention you’re fantastic!) but collectively it’s us!!!! Right there in print on page 186 of Canadian Living – wooh Boo your name’s going to be in bright lights! (well, your user name anyway ;-p) Congrats SmartCanucks!!

Ever since Sony released the PS3 with the hefty price tag of $599.00 a lot of people have been waiting for a price drop, myself included, and finally it’s here! You have probably seen at least one post or advertisement this week about the great new price of $299.00 and you may be thinking ‘now’s the time’ (and your husband might be jumping up and down b/c he can no longer contain his excitement). But is now the time?? Here’s some info to consider; Sony has officially announced the release of the PS3 Slim for Sept.1, 2009 for the sameprice of $299.00. So now you may be thinking ‘ok so I can get a new slicker model for the same price, but I really want it now!’ So, consider this, the new model is going to be 120 gb while the old model is only 80 gb. A reasonable assumption at this point is that the new Slim PS3 is going to be a better value (and right now it is), so I pose this question – What will happen to the 80 gb when the 120 gb Slim is officially released for the same price? If one is clearly a higher value than we, as savvy shoppers, know that it will be a hard sell trying to convince people to pay the same price for them! So, in theory, a possible price drop in the 80 gb in the very near future??? *shrugs. I don’t know, but I’m going to wait just in case the real question ends up being; does size matter? 😉

Abercrombie & Fitch has had a Winter sale going on for a while but I’ve noticed that they’ve recently lowered the prices on clearance items even more. Now you can get a fleece for $50 or less and shirts for as low as $25. If you know Abercrombie & Fitch’s prices you’ll know that these are marvelous deals. The items on clearance are cheaper than what you’d get from American Eagle!
I know Abercrombie & Fitch is a very controversial store and people usually have a love or hate relationship with Abercrombie so not everyone would be interested in this deal BUT if you are a fan this is a good time to get a few items! This sale is currently running in Abercrombie & Fitch stores in Canada and online too. If you order online you get charged $15 shippingÂ for first $100 spent then $25, etc. which isn’t that great but considering there are only three Abercrombie stores in Canada, you might not have another option.
New Year’s is a time for fun and celebration, and a lot of people are going to take that fun and celebration a little too seriously and over-imbibe on spirits and liquors. Whether you intend to get your drink on or just want to travel safely to avoid those who do, many cities across the country are offering free public transit tonight.
Break out the phone book and call your local transit terminal to see what arrangements have been made. Here in St. Catharines buses will be free after 8pm and running past their normal hours, offering service until 2am. I know that Go Transit and the TTC will be offering similar arrangements, but unfortunately I don’t have the specific details for the rest of the country.
If you do call and find out, let us know here in the comments. Let’s make sure that the SmartCanucks community has a safe and happy New Year!
Still looking to make New Year’s plans for tonight? Why not take a peek at About.com’s summary of New Year’s Events in Canada. Many of the events will be free, so it’s worth taking a peek. In my neck of the woods, the annual Niagara Falls New Year’s event will be kicking off at 8pm with Rodger Hodgson of SuperTramp and Kim Mitchell.
Ok – so you get what you pay for with free events, but still..
Any cool events going down where you live tonight?
