Chapters isn’t the only store still celebrating their post-Christmas clearance, but they are the only one who felt the need to tell me about it in my inbox this morning. This week, Chapters is offering 30% off all regular-priced hardcovers, 50% off calendars, and 50% of seasonal items. If you have iRewards, you can’t get a further discount on these items.
Really not that great a deal. Aren’t their hardcovers are usually on sale to begin with? The deal is in store only. Honestly — you’re going to do better shopping their online Boxing Week sale.
When was the last time you ordered a cup of coffee, an Egg McMuffin, and a bingo card?Â It’s may not be your typical Extra Value Meal, but at one McDonald’s in Maine it’s become a weekly breakfast tradition.
It may seem like a strange story, but it’s something that I’ve seen pop up at more than a few McDonald’s in the past few years.Â Many Mickey D’s seem to be offering special events on certain days of the week to cater to different kinds of crowds.Â In my neck of the woods, certain locations have a “Family Night” on Thursdays from 5pm-7pm.Â I’ve yet to bring my kids to it, but I believe there’s a good deal of coloring and crafts involved.Â It’s a neat idea, and while at it’s base it’s really just another ploy to bring people into the restaurant, it’s still nice to see a restaurant try to actively be a part of the community.
In the Economist’s “Pocket World in Figures” Canada ranked 2nd amongst countries with largest computer ownership with 87.6 computers per 100 people. Not too bad compared to say Finland which only has 50 computers per 100 people. But Israel ranks in first place with 122.1 computers per 100 people so we’re going to have to buy computers like crazy to catch upÂ 😯 .
Recent winner of the 2008 Canadian Blog Awards (second place went to SmartCanucks!), Yarn Harlot is the ongoing story of one woman’s adventures in knitting. Like any good story though, the knitting merely sets the stage for an adventure full of personality and good writing. Stephanie’s life outside of knitting is just as fun a read as her life inside of it.
Whether you’re a knitter or knot (see what I did there?), Yarn Harlot is a delightful yarn (did it again) for blog readers from all walks of life.
I was cruising around all of the solid deals on Amazon.ca this week and couldn’t help but laugh at the very first item on their Boxing Week page.It showcased a whopping 4% savings on Animal Crossing: City Folk! That’s two whole dollars!
Not that I don’t appreciate the savings, but when you’re trying to push your Boxing Week bonanza, do you really think 4% is a number you want to toss around?
Hi everyone! With Boxing Week upon us and great deals coming out the wazoo, I thought it might be a great time to remind everyone of our sister site, SmartCanucks Tech Deals. SC Tech Deals is still the same SC you know and love, but tech-centric. Everything from computers and electronics to video games, GPS and music players — you name it, we’re trying to help you save on it.
This is probably the biggest week of the year for tech savings, so if you haven’t visited SmartCanucks Tech Deals yet, there’s no better time!
It’s been a few weeks since we tried to toss a caption challenge up there, but I thought it might be a good idea to take some time to clear the palette. This week I thought I’d go with a theme that would be universally loved – teddy bear picnics.
So let’s have it it, people! What caption say you?
(No bears were harmed in the making of this picture.)
Ladies and gentlemen, let your Boxing Day shopping commence!!
Ah – who am I kidding?Â If you’re a deal-hound (and if you’re reading this site, you no doubt are) you’ve been lined up in front of your favorite store for hours and are only reading this upon your return trip.Â The picture above is a quick snapshot of Toronto’s Eaton Centre on Boxing Day 2007, and it’s a perfect reminder of why I like to stay indoors on the 26th.Â Luckily I usually overspend on Christmas and have nothing left come boxing day anyways, so I never feel too put out.
This year though — I get to be on the other side of the counter.Â As I type this I’m quickly wolfing down a breakfast bagel and getting my shoes togther to head in and fight the good fight at my retail job for the next 9 hours.Â Wish me luck everybody!Â And if you got any great deals today, let us know here!
