Featured Brag: ErinsMom Uses FPCs to Score More Freebies


While getting anything for free is excellent, most SmartCanucks members hold onto their free product coupons (FPCs) until they can make even more from them – you can use them on items with bonus points, for items with more coupons on it and in some cases towards minimum spend requirements for promotions (not at Shoppers Drug Mart).

Including tax, ErinsMom paid only $6.88 for everything pictured and received 9 Airmiles and coupons for five free Blizzards from Dairy Queen and five free drinks at Orange Julius.

  • Kraft Shredded Cheese $3.99 – $1 coupon X 2 = $5.98
  • Lean Cuisine Fresh Inspirations $ 4.29 X 6 (6 FPCs) = $0
  • Orville ready to eat Popcorn $2.99 X 2 (2 FPCs)= $0
  • Apple Cinnamon Cheerios $5.19 X 5 (5 FPCs) = $0

    How do u get the free product coupon ??

  2. FallenPixels says:

    Not sure about the popcorn, but Cheerios is a replacement coupon when the Peanut Butter ones they offered could not be found in stores and Lean Cuisine was a facebook freebie

    I used 2 of my FPCs when they were also on Checkout 51 … so I MADE money buying them 🙂

    I find facebook is the best place for FPCs. Lots of companies offer freebies.
    “Like” Smart Canucks on facebook & you won’t miss these freebies when they are posted.

    The popcorn FPC came from boxes of Orville microwave popcorn. They ran a promotion where every bag had a PIN code to submit online, one in 6 won a FPC.

    I am wondering how one person can have so many FPC’s? There is almost always a limit of one/person/mailing address. Do let me know please how one can get more than one FPC.

      Sarah, this particular member trades/rides trains so likely from that
      Check out our trading forum, you can order coupons you won’t need and swap them for ones others don’t but you want
