There is a $5 coupon available right now that just might make you “whistle while you work” . You can use this coupon towards either the Snow White Blu Ray combo pack (which includes a bonus DVD) or the 2 Disc DVD edition of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This would be a great Christmas gift or a welcome addition to your Disney collection. The Blu Ray combo pack is actually a pretty good deal if you have a Blu Ray player because you can always give the DVD as a gift or leave it at the grandparent’s house for your kids to watch while their there.

Thanks to couponlady for this great find.
Costco is offering 4 free 8×10 prints to their members from now until December 6. All you have to do is add 4 8×10 photos to your shopping cart and use coupon code CWFE1123 at checkout. No other purchase is needed and you pick them up at your local Costco. I’m loving all these free photo printing deals that have been around lately, with a new baby there are so many pictures you want to print and doing it for free is so awesome!
Also if you are setting up a new photo account with Costco you get 25 free 4×6 prints. The savings just keep adding up!
Click here to go to the Costco photolab and order your FREE prints.
Thanks to awongtse for finding this great freebie for us!
I just stumbled upon this freebie offer and had to share. Shareyourconcept is offering a freebie sample pack of their skin and beauty products for us to try and give feedback on. It sounds like they are getting ready to launch a new line of products and need to promote it and see how it will do in the marketplace. The new line is called “Skin Wonders” and it says that you will get your sample pack in the mail within a month. This could be a really great freeebie offer.

Payless Shoes is having a BOGO sale on right now, it’s a Buy One Get One Half Off sale but still a pretty great deal. Also this BOGO even isn’t just on shoes, it’s on everything in the store (or so says the email I got from them). To make it even sweeter, from now until December 1, buy a pink bracelet in support of breast cancer research in store and get a coupon for $10 off your purchase of $40 or more. The coupon is actually attached to the bracelet and you can find them at the til. The bracelets cost $3 so really I guess you’re saving $7 but it’s also a great cause to be donating too.
Also to get an even better deal, don’t forget that Payless takes the SPC card!
Thanks to nichoelh for bringing the $10 coupon to our attention.
Save $15 off $100 at Sears.ca by using the code 941612477. I received this in one of my Sears.ca order inserts. Perfect time for the Christmas season. I prefer to online shop more then in-store for presents the past few years. Less hustle and bustle, no screaming kids, playing “hide the present” from the kids in the store, and I’ve been finding some fab deals the last few years online!

Edited to add- Apparently this code isn’t working for everyone, but heres a code for $10 off $100 coupon 941612468 which is valid until the end of November.

And the day that we’ve all been waiting for, Bonus Redeption Day at Shoppers Drug Mart! The big day will be November 28 & 29! For all of you who have reached the maximum number of optimum points this is the day to spend them. On Bonus Redeption Day your redeption amount increases. So if you have 40,000 points you get $100 (extra $25) and if you have 75,000 you get $200 (extra $50) to spend! This is a fantastic day to do a bunch of Christmas shopping, buy yourself a new camera or stock up on free food and other neccessities. You can’t beat getting more free items can you? And don’t forget you can still use coupons to maximize your purchases.
I don’t think I’ll have nearly enough points to make this Bonus Redeption Day practical for me (I’m pretty new to Optimum points), so I’m going to keep saving them up for the next one. I can’t wait to see your great purchases in the brag section!
Huge thank you goes out to kato for the heads up on this great event!
Thank you jadedragoninbc for writing this article and emailing it to me. This article was originally published by her at eHow.
If you look carefully and arrange your life the correct way you can actually turn a profit from shopping using the AIR MILES Reward Program in Canada. AIR MILES are redeemable for many travel, merchandise and gift certificate rewards. Depending on how you use the rewards points they are worth between 10 cents and 15 cents each for gift certificates, more or less on items that are harder to price like flights and merchandise.
Sure, follow the advice to always carry your AIR MILES card and shop at AIR MILES sponsors, but if you want to take it to the next level, here is exactly how.
Your goal is to earn a combination of AIR MILES Reward Miles and Tax Deductible Donation Receipts that together have a value above what you spent.
Air Miles – Step 1
Identify which grocery stores in your area are part of the AIR MILES program. The AIR MILES program offers exclusivity to each sponsor in each region so this part is easy. In Western Canada the grocery sponsor is Safeway Canada and this article will use Safeway as the example. Same principles apply at other stores in other regions of Canada.
Air Miles – Step 2
In order to get the best sale prices at Safeway you will need a Safeway Client Card, available free from Safeway customer service. Once you have the card issued you can just quote your phone number to get the discounts.
Air Miles – Step 3
Collect AIR MILES coupons and watch for promotions for bonus miles. These can be found online, in the paper, on the shelf tags and in the in-store fliers. You should also sign up for e-flyers from the Safeway website.
These promotions come in three main categories:
- Dollar Amount Spent for Bonus Air Miles Deals – Safeway regularly runs coupons for 100 or 250 bonus AIR MILES with a $100 or $200 purchase.
- Bonus AIR MILES coupons for specific products.
- Buy X get Y Bonus AIR MILES type promotions found in flyers and on the shelf tags. (hint read the fine print on the shelf tags because not all eligible products get the shelf tag.
Air Miles – Step 4
When the store is running one of the Dollar Amount Spent for Bonus AIR MILES deals, go to the store with your coupons and look carefully at all products offering bonus AIR MILES. Especially look at products that generally have some or all of these characteristics
- low priced/low ticket items
- ON SALE and
- Offering Bonus AIR MILES
- Maybe something you can find a coupon for online or in print
Bonus AIR MILES are just like all other AIR MILES, you just earn them in addition to or as a bonus to the regular AIR MILES awarded for shopping
Air Miles – Step 5
Calculate how many Regular and Bonus AIR MILES you would earn by buying each product meeting the Step 4 criteria. For ease of calculation you might want to calculate based on buying 10 or 100 of the item.
Here is the Math for a 10 units of a can of soup sale priced at $2.00 each:
- Cost of product 10 units X $2.00 = $20. There are no taxes.
- # of bonus AIR MILES from buying the product (say 20 miles X 10 units = 200 miles)
- # of AIR MILES from Safeway regular program = 1 per $20 spent, so 1 mile.
- # of AIR MILES from your participating BMO MasterCard or AMEX Card = 1 per $20 spent so 1 mile.
- Spend $200 and get 250 Bonus miles promotion = 1.25 miles per $1 X $20 = 25 miles.
Total AIR MILES = 227 Miles
Times 12 cents each Mile = $27.24 of value in miles on a $20 purchase.
You just found that select product that is worth more in AIR MILES than it costs you.
Air Miles – Step 6
Purchase a large quantity of the product or products you have identified. You may be able to get the manager to order in more of an item (maybe a pallet full!).
Use your AIR MILES credit card, you grocery store loyalty card, and your AIR MILES collector card plus the appropriate coupons.
If you are using a spend $100 get a 100 miles coupon you will want to maximize your bonuses, so run the purchases through in separate transactions of $100 each, making sure that each purchase includes an appropriate multiple of items to get the full bonus on the item.
You do not have to worry about the credit card and base miles from the store as they accumulate across multiple transactions anyway.
Keep the receipts for the next step or buy one product at the regular price to establish fair market value. (edited for clarity)
Air Miles – Step 7
Call an appropriate local charity, set an appointment and pay them a visit. The Salvation Army or local food bank are your best bets for food donations. The animal shelter will love your pet food donations.
Ask the charity for an “in kind” charitable gift receipt or receipts (if they have dollar limits on individual in kind donation receipts). You will need to establish the fair market value of the product you are donating, which is where having a receipt showing the fair market retail value comes in handy.
Air Miles – Step 8
Reap the Rewards of your Efforts:
-Enjoy the thought you just helped feed hundreds of people or animals
-File your donation receipts with your income taxes for a approximately 40% credit on your income taxes (exact value varies by Province)
-Enjoy a nice trip (where my honeymoon came from), give great gifts from your miles, or use the miles to get that riding lawn mower you always wanted (seriously this is exactly where the writer’s John Deere mower came from).
Amazon has updated their video game deal of the week. They are offering a free game with the purchase of a Wii system. The Wii at Amazon includes Wii Sports and now you can choose either Mario Kart or Wii Play for free. The Wii is priced at $219.99 and ships for free. Both Mario Kart and Wii Play are priced at $49.98 so this is a pretty good deal. I’ve played both of these games and they are both really fun so it’s a hard decision. Great time to buy a Wii if you’re looking too for yourself or for Christmas.
To get this deal just add the Wii and the game of your choice to your shopping cart. The discount will be taken off at checkout. This deal is valid from now until November 29 or while supplies last.
