McDonald’s $1 Drinks

McDonald’s are running a deal on all fountain drinks, they are all $1 no matter what size. This is exactly the same promotion they ran last summer with great success. The normal price for a large fizzy drink is roughly $3 so you get about a $2 saving if you get the largest drink (which you should as they are all the same price while this promo is on). The promotion starts today (April 8th) and ends whenever McDonald’s decide.

Note that it also applies on coffee, although it’s only on small or medium coffees (inc iced coffees).

This promotion was successful in the past years that McDonald’s keep bringing it back on a yearly basis, advertising it as a great way to keep cool during the hot summer months. Stressing the fact that not only are their beverages refreshing but every location provides a fresh environment thanks to the use of conditioned air systems. Other healthier ways to stay cool come to mind, visiting the neighborhood swimming pool comes to mind.

If you are interested in learning more information about McDonald’s most recent promotions, you may be interested in having a look at their official website’s promotions section. Which, at the moment of this update included information about the dollar menu and coffee promos.

Marble Slab Loads of Printable Coupons….Yummy!

While it’s not quite the summery season of shorts, flip flops and a nice long walk with an ice cream in hand with shades on lazing around, it does seem to be the season of ice cream discounts. It’s the second one I’ve come across this week. We have posted about special offers from Marble Slab a few times before, and what’s interesting is that they don’t seem to repeat their offers, this one is entirely new to me (I believe). Customers searching for some of that cold creamy goodness, in the epic proportion scale might enjoy these printable coupons for Marble Slab to get multiple discounts.

As this is a printable, you will have to go to your local outlet, find the nearest one to you here. The closest one to me is absolutely miles away, so it isn’t much use to me, but I have already sent it to a couple of fiends, so I hope you get to enjoy what I cannot.

Here are a few of the discounts available: $8 for 2 cones, $5 off a layered ice cream cake, buy one cone and get the 2nd for .99c & buy 2 half litre tubs of ice cream for $10.

Details: 20% off online orders
Code:1498

The Globe and Mail 50% First 6 Months

I haven’t been provided with an expiry date for this promotion currently being run by the Globe and Mail. The deal is simple: save 50% for the first 6 months of a Globe and Mail ‘Globe Unlimited’ subscription.

Visit Globeandmail.com to get your subscription here
Expires: Not Provided

Normally a monthly subscription is $19.99 per month, so with this special offer it goes down to $9.99 a month for the first 6 months. I believe you have to actually commit to 12 months, so the price of the subscription will go up to the regular rate at the end of the promotion. Apparently these prices do not include any taxes (will vary depending on province). But what surprises me the most is that the offer is available to new and existing customers, usually it is just for new customers, so this is a refreshing change. The subscription includes access to all electronic platforms (tablets, smartphones and computers), the website, a dashboard tool (not quote sure what this is) as well as member loyalty rewards.

The Body Shop Mix and Match is Back: Buy 3 Get 3 Free!

Unfortunately coupon codes can’t be used with the offers below which are currently (at the time of writing) running on thebodyshop.ca. I’ll elaborate on my favourite deal in just a moment. But first here is what’s available:

  • Buy 3, Get 3 FREE;
  • 50% Off Hand Creams

Shop at The Body Shop Canada Here
Expires: March 30, 2014

Obviously those into hand creams might prefer that particular deal, for the rest of us the first offer is by far and away the most attractive. Getting 3 free items is awesome whichever way you look at it. So stockpile your shelves with your favourite soaps and other products in this mix and match event to save in the long run. I can’t help but think that this offer is in direct response to the one I wrote about not long ago for Bath and Body Works (that’s live again too).

This deal is for online and in store use. There are stores in every big city in Canada, which you can find here. There might be limitations of stock, so the sooner you go in store the better. They run this deal every now and then, so if you miss it this time around don’t fret, just keep up to date with our page for the Body Shop where we usually post about the latest offers (mostly coupons though).

Bath and Body Works March Deal: Buy 3 Get 3 Free

And the offers keep rolling in. This one is from Bath and Body works and it’s a cracker. Customers can take advantage of a buy 3 get 3 free plus and extra one deal. Wait, doesn’t that mean buy 3 get 4 free? I think so, but that’s not how they are presenting the offer.

We don’t know when the last day will be (it keeps getting extended), customers can buy in store and online, and whilst supplies last. Customers can enjoy the new Bath and Body works signature collection and more than double down on their investment (an investment in skin care). I generally take advantage of these deals when I see them and buy in bulk–in fact my shelf still has about 9 bottles from the Body Shop’s last deal like this. But isn’t that what stockpiling and saving in the long run is all about?

Autopartsway.ca 10% off March 2014 Coupon!

I’ve only written about Autopartsway a couple of times over the years, and it’s not because they aren’t awesome–they are, it’s because they don’t release coupons too often. But we just received an email from them to notify our visitors about a new offer, so here it is.

Details: Get up to 10% off.
Code:SPR14
Expires: 31st March, 2014
Visit Auto Parts Way here

There are a couple of terms for this offer which I listed at the end.

Of course this website is a Canadian store that sells parts for automobiles. I’m not sure if they physically stock items or go sourcing them after someone makes an order. But from my experience in speaking to them they seem to respond really fast and they are super helpful, but I’ve never actually ordered anything from the store. If you have please make a comment below.

I recently received a Canadian tire flyer listing all of the winter prep needed for a car and I was blown away. I know I don’t need all the gear that they suggest but there were some great ideas that just make sense. For example carrying a kit for survival in the winter should you suffer a break down. A pump for the tires, a bright light, winter specific windshield washers, the list goes on. So perhaps this coupon might be useful for those looking to winter proof their vehicle. Failing that any mods or if you’re handy with a wrench then perhaps you could make your car tick over a bit better and order some parts yourself to install.

T&C’s: “Offer cannot be combined with any other offers. Offer valid for orders over $100. Lowest price guarantee includes only parts from our Replacement Parts section.”

Sears.ca 1-Day Fitness Sale

I have this love-hate relationship with the winter. While I get to spend lots of time with friends and family, it’s mostly indoors playing games and drinking and eating, vs outdoor activities. So as you can imagine, I’ve put on a few pounds (no, there will be no ensuing photos) and though I have started swimming again and I’m looking for other activities to lose some of those pounds as well as tone up a little–I’m not getting any younger you know.

Man on TreadmillWhile I don’t know if I will get any fitness equipment myself in the sale, and that’s mostly because I already have most of what I need at home to work out, but you might not. So if you’re in the market for some home fitness gear without having to pay the full hefty prices, then the season of savings for fitness gear has begun. This time around, the pioneers of savings is Sears.ca with a 1-day sale on cardio equipment, where customers can save up to 70% on some treadmills (not all), exercise bikes and those strange elliptical things. It will be today only so hurry. If you’re too late for this sale, see if there are any new offers on our regularly updated Sears coupons page on VC.

Sears 3-day saleWhile I’m at it I might as well mention some of the other sales Sears.ca has going on over the next few days, especially since most are particularly noteworthy. They have an interesting 50% off select products like appliances, clothing, furniture, electronics, home and garden, kids stuff and a few smaller categories in the Sears Days sale until April 6th 2014, there are only select items at the maximum 60% off, but there were loads in the appliance sale when I checked which will be welcome news to those moving home soon.

How are you planning on losing weight this year?

East Side Marios Coupon

East Side Marios Coupon

I have never eaten at East Side Marios before. But by signing up to their newsletter they sometimes send you the occasional free coupon. There is a restaurant locator on the link provided for customers to find their local restaurant, it looks like they have locations all across Canada. Otherwise you have a little while to enjoy this online coupon I found today:

Details: $15 off when you order $30 worth of food at East Side Marios online.
Code:MARIO15
Expires: 12th June, 2014
Visit East Side Marios here

This is an absolutely ridiculous coupon. 50% off food is crazy. I don’t think they will make any money on this offer at all. But perhaps they are hoping to drum up some new customers. There were no T&C’s I could find with this coupon, so I’m not sure if it applies to delivery or taxes or not, but regardless, this is the best coupon I’ve found this week so far. Enjoy.

Joe Fresh: $10 Off Purchases Over $50

Joe Fresh

The fabulous people over at Joe Fresh sent us an offer today and we couldn’t be happier. The offer is a coupon code (rare) for $10 off kids, toddler and baby items over the price of $50 (before tax). I believe that if you actually qualify for this coupon you will also automatically qualify for free shipping which activates on purchases over $50 anyway, so double deal. Normally we have printable coupons too, but not this time. This is an online exclusive offer.

The code works for boys and girls. There are loads of items to choose from like these cool board shorts for boys. What will you get?

2x Free Kraft Dinners!

I read a great article the other day about Kraft Dinner being called the de facto national dish of Canada, with more sales than anywhere else on the planet, in fact 55% more than Americans! ~ Source

So Canadians might just snap this deal up. This deal is courtesy of No Frills Canada (find your nearest store here). At the moment they have Kraft Dinners on sale for only $0.48 a box.

Now, here is the clever bit. Right now at the same time there is a Kraft Diner coupon on the Kraft website. And customers that use the coupon can get a packet of Kraft Dinner Macaroni and Cheese at $1 off when you buy 2! So if my math is right customers can get 2 free packets when the coupon is used at No Frills!
