Earn 50 Air Miles for Using Your Cash Rewards Miles at Rona and More

There are several Air Miles promotions out right now. I have attached photos of the Shell deal as well as the Rona deal  below. As you can see the Rona is the better bang for your buck if you are going to cash in cash rewards. I called about the Rona deal as it seemed to vague and to good to be true. They assured me it was correct but couldn't give me any details. They said I had been targeted by Rona to get this deal. I wondered if I could do it more than once. They said if there was nothing in the fine print saying one time only, go ahead. So, I went to Rona and picked up some shock for my pool and found bird seed(I am almost out!)in the clearance aisle! I asked the cashier if she knew of this deal and she said she did.(I am under the understanding anyone can do it).
 I did 2 separate transactions. The first transaction was $3.41 and the second was $2.31. I will get 50 Air Miles per transaction so in cash rewards 100 Air miles is worth $10.52. In the end I am up $4.81!
Just be sure to seperate your transactions into $10 redemptions to maximize your return!
Fine print says it can take up to 60 days to get the rewards. I have marked my calendar and will update this post when I get them.
Redeem Air Miles Cash Rewards get Air Miles in return, until July 14, 2013.
Until July 7, 2013, spend your Air Miles cash, get Air Miles in return.
Need to earn some air miles? This weekend at Shell spend $20 on gas and $10 in store and get 25 Air Miles.

Saving Money on Cell Phones This Weekend!

Our middle daughter just graduated. She has decided it's time to get a cell phone. We went shopping this past week and were pleasantly surprised at the deals. I thought I would share in case you know someone who needs a cell phone! We ended up at Superstore after shopping other places. Our salesman, Wes, was very helpful. The first day we were there he laid out our options. When we went back the next day he was able to help us figure out the best plan. He mentioned it is the end of the quarter for the companies, thus the great deals. Note to self, June is a good time to get a new plan. Right now on select phones there is a $100 President's Choice gift card offer. As well, select phones are eligible for scratch cards. The minimum scratch card is $25 the maximum is $100. Some phones are eligible for 2 scratch cards. He showed us which ones and we picked a Samsung smart phone. The plan she wanted is $25/month for
200 Canada Wide Free Minutes
Free Canada Wide Evenings and Weekends starting at 6PM
Unlimited texting
50% off the 1st 3 months bill($12.50/month)

The phone is worth $205. Fido pays it down each month by $8.54! This means in 2 years it's paid off. It was one of the things that swayed us to Fido as the other similar phone companies would pay it out in 5 years! What does this mean? Well, instead of a contract there's just the phone to pay out. So, each month the amount decreases by $8.54 so that in 2 years the phone is paid. If you decide to change providers sooner you just pay out the remaining amount of the tab.
So, she got $100 right off the bat. Her scratch cards were $100 and $50 worth of gift cards! In the end her phone is paid for (we just gave her cash and bought the gift cards from her) and she got an extra $45!
This deal  supposedly ends this weekend, so check it out if you are needing a cell phone!

Best Buy Now Selling Personal Care Items!

There is an interesting deal available through BestBuy. Seems they have started carrying personal care items and right now they are offering $10 off when you spend $20.
 Use the code VIVA4ME.
Offer available May 31- June 13.
There is free shipping when you spend more than $20 also!
Something I am interested in is the Gillette Sensor razor cartridges as they are expensive and hubby is almost out. I am going to do some price comparing today and I will repost here later.
Update:After the $10 off I am only saving a few dollars on the razors, but a few dollars is a few dollars!
Wow! I ordered these on June 5 and they came today, June 7!
Total $14.98 plus tax for a grand total of $16.78. The cheapest I found them in store was $20.27(includes tax).
How about you, did you find something to use this deal for?

Covergirl makeup is 30% off. For example Lash Blast Mascara is $8.99 but once you add it to your cart it is $6.29.
Right now at Superstore Lash Blast Mascara is $6.87 and there is a $3 coupon. Plus if you shop today at Extra Foods you could get an additional 10-15% off!
All that to say it is probably best to check out the prices of the items you might like to buy and see if this is a good deal for you!

Quantities seem limited on most items.
