15,000 Aeroplan Miles, Dec 4th only

Aeroplan and Rexall are teaming up to give you 15000 points if you change over your prescription on Sat, Dec 4! My brother emailed me this morning to let me know, THANKS!
I always thought that Aeroplan cards had fees, but I was wrong. You can easily get a card here.

If you are willing(and have any prescription, it sounds like it doesn't have to be an on going one)to switch you can get yourself 15000 Aeromiles. Hubby and wife both can get a free card and if you both have prescriptions, viola 15,000 points each!
So, what can you get for those Aeromiles? Looks like about $100 worth of gift cards. It says it's good for a flight(you can click on the chart or any of the pictures to see a bigger version)Short Haul(not sure where that is)in Canada. Of course, you have to pay the taxes and that long list of other stuff...But, still, not bad!

The fine print:

Offer valid at participating Rexall/Rexall Pharma Plus locations only in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, North West Territories and Manitoba. Members cannot earn miles on prescriptions in the province of Ontario. Aeroplan Miles will be credited to your Aeroplan account within 10 business days.

$25 Chapters Gift Certificate for $10

This looks like a fantastic deal! Kijiji is offering this as a daily deal. $10 for $25 gift certificate. That's a 60% savings.It is for online purchases. The only thing I couldn't find was an expiry date. If you do let me know. Hopefully it works like a gift card and doesn't expire. It is only available for a total of 24 hours and as you can see there are only 14 hours left. Nice gift!
I got my email confirmation saying I would be able to print it after the deal closed.

Chapters online phone #1-800-832-7569 I talked with a man here and he said he doesn't think there is an expiry date for gift certificates, just like gift cards.

Ok! I learned more! Only one gift card per account!

And my children will teach me.....

The other day we needed a scientific calculator for math. I remember buying one years ago when they were $75!!! So, we are in the store and in a hurry. I see one at the end of the aisle for $15 with limited time offer(buy quickly!). I grab it and am ready to bolt! My girl says," Mom let's go down the aisle, remember end of the aisle isn't good!"(ha! I told her that, have I forgotten??) Long story short, she only needed certain functions on her scientific calculator. The math teacher had stressed that they only needed one that did these things and no more. She found the same brand just less functions(less complicated??) for $8.97!! Well, as far as I am concerned after paying $50 for a used one many years ago, $15 was great! But, $8.97 is even better! Remember(and hopefully I will next time)end of the aisle is usually not the best place to find good prices and bolting can be costly!

3 Months Super Channel Free

We are presently subscribed to Shaw. We have a 6months $9.95 HD package. While watching hubby noticed that they were advertising free Superchannel for 3 months. Today I called this number 1-888-472-2222. I was told I could choose from Superchannel which included channels 161, 162, 163, 164(in our area) or Movie Central which is HBO and Movie Central 1,2, 3(55,56,57,58). The man I spoke with said personally he'd pick Movie Central. I said okay. We talked about it costing $17 after the 3 month trial and he said I could call up in exactly 3 months and cancel(no prior notice needed). Then he wondered if I had anymore questions. I said I wondered about a show I had seen advertised on Superchannel, would I get it with Movie Central? He put me on hold and came back to say I could have the Movie Central Package for free as well as the Superchannel! This is another $17/month after the promotion period. Don't forget to ask! He also explained that I could use Shaw on Demand to watch tv shows and movie on Superchannel or Movie Central for free after it had aired and for 24 hours. I will have to figure this part out! New movies just released from the video store are $5.95 on Shaw on Demand.(at Blockbuster they are $4.99 plus tax, $5.60). Nice to snuggle in with all this cold!

Picasa and Free 2500 Optimum points

I was working on my free photo album and I thought I'd share a way to make calendar and photobook making easier. There's a free program called Picasa and it's awesome! Just download it and then when you have your library open you will see icons on the bottom that say upload, email,print, export, shop, blog this, collage, movie and geo tag. Just hit shop and a list of different sites that allow you to use Picasa are shown. I use Shutterfly. Highlight all the photos you'd like to upload and walk away!!! It's soooo much easier than the traditional way of one file at a time.

Want 2500 Optimum Points?
Call 1-877-888-5348. They will ask you to demo their upcoming prescription phone line. You enter your shoppers optimum card and listen for about a minute and they will give you 2500 points.(in about 4-6 weeks)

Gas cards came!

Remember my post awhile back about the Kellogg's cereal $5 gas card? Well, they came today! 4 of them. You are allowed 5 per family so I sent the 4 in separately(this was part of the fine print) and in a 5th envelope I wrote for a no purchase necessary entry. Today I received a whole empty cereal box, with a sorry try again and another form to fill out for a $5 gift card.
So, in total, I bought 4 boxes of cereal at $4 each. I bought 5 stamps and will need one more for today's form.
I got $20 worth of gas cards, with $5 more to come!
It was fun for me to see that this actually worked as I have never tried it before.
I have activated all the cards and now comes the tricky part, redeeming them! I am told it's best to take it in at any gas station and leave it with them(I am going to bring all the rules to redeem Kellogg's sent me with my cards). Then you can get $5 worth of gas and go in and pay and start again, or you can leave them 2 methods of payment and fill up. I am told this is very hard for them to figure out and it's easiest if you do your $5 transactions separately.
Anyone else try this? Anyone win the $500???
