Amazon Canada: 30% Off Sherlock Limited Edition Gift Set – $150

Posted by on October 27, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 30% Off Sherlock Limited Edition Gift Set   $150

Amazon Canada is offering 30% off the pre-order for Sherlock: The Complete Seasons 1 to 3 Limited Edition Gift Set [Blu-ray + DVD]. Originally $222, the set has now been reduced to $149.99.

First things first: I have been watching this set for months now and it has not been at the ‘original retail price’ on Amazon Canada. However, it has been hovering around $178 most the time. I first found out about this set even being in existence on the BBC Canada. They have the set currently priced at $197.98 and it has been at that price constantly – I have been watching.

This price is the absolute BEST price you will see on the set and I have only seen it at this price once before. That is when I first found out about the product. I was debating pre-ordering it to have the price change less than 12-hours after I found the set. Amazon Canada changes their product prices often, at different times of the day, and for no apparent reason at all. If you want this at a good price then order it when you see this post!

Here is what is included:

  • Blu-Ray and DVD combos of all three current seasons of Sherlock
  • A bonus disk with tons of amazing, juicy, never before seen material
  • Limited edition collectible busts of Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman)
  • Two limited edition collectible Art Cards

I am getting chills just thinking about this set. The busts are remarkable renditions of the two actors as the characters of Sherlock and Watson.

I am a HUGE fan of Sherlock Holmes. I am talking the character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not just the interpretation brought to us by Benedict Cumberbatch. I have read all the short stories several times. I own all the short stories. I have watched most of the TV episodes I could get with Jeremy Brett staring as Sherlock. I am not fond of Basil Rathbone, but he is tolerable. Benedict does an outstanding job and I would be more than pleased to own this set.

The set is actually reasonable priced. Given the price of buying just the Blu-Rays of each season separately, you would be paying at least $105 to $110 for all three seasons. With this set, you get two busts, art prints, and a disk with juicy bonus features for about $45 to $50 extra. *SQUEAL*

All orders of $25 or more ship from free from Amazon. This product will be released on the 4th of November 2014.

Amazon Canada: Bond 50 The Complete 23-Film Collection (Blu-ray) 63% Off

Posted by on October 26, 2014 at 12:18 PM

Amazon Canada: Bond 50 The Complete 23 Film Collection (Blu ray) 63% Off

Amazon Canada has come out with a really amazing deal just in time for some Christmas shopping.  You can get the complete Bond collection including all 23 films on Blu-ray for 63% off the regular price for a limited time only.

The regular price of this collection is $299.99 and it is now on sale for just $109.99.  This deal will save you $190 or 63% off the regular price. If you figure out what the cost is per movie, it ends up being just $4.78 a movie and they are all Blu-ray.

The last time they had this awesome deal, it was way back in December almost a year ago and it was for just one day only.  My husband begged me to grab it but I was just a little too late because they were all sold out.  I cannot wait to surprise him this time with it!

This collection includes every actor ever to play the bond role.  My favourite would have to be Daniel Craig because he was far more raw and gritty than the rest of them but I know some people that would disagree with me. A lot of people including my husband would say their favourite Bond man would have to be either Roger Moore or Sean Connery.

This collection gets  4.5 star rating out of 5 and has a lot of comments since that rating came from 100 different people.  Here is one of those comments.

This set is incredible! I have the complete collection of all Bond movies on VHS but recently changed to Blue Ray DVD to keep up with the Smart TV’s. Worth every penny! – Sue

It is always nice to see such great reviews and high ratings on something you are purchasing.

All of these Blu-ray movies are wide screen and this box set includes over 120 hours of extras, including in-depth, behind-the-scenes interviews, cast and crew commentaries and more for each film. This is the perfect movie collection for any Bond lover for a great Christmas gift.

At less than just $5 a movie for the box set and all of the extra features, this is a steal of a deal at 63% off.

As a nice little bonus, you will get free shipping on this collection as well.

Amazon Canada: More $5 Blu Rays

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Amazon Canada: More $5 Blu Rays

While shopping for new movies, I ran across a selection of Blu Ray movies for just $5 or less. You seriously cannot get a better deal on a Blu Ray movie unless someone gives one to you, so I thought I would share this awesome little find with my Moosers!

You can buy fourteen movies on Blu Ray for $5 apiece. I did a list like this back in May, so I thought I would point out the new additions to the section instead of going back over the ones that have been there for a while.  Without further ado, here they are:

As you can see, there is a nice new crop of $5 Blu Ray movies up for grabs along with seven others previously mentioned that are still available.

Your best savings is on the new Robocop, which is a cult classic movie about a dystopian society. It foretold the demise of Detroit (haha!). It is also quite famous for its commercials. I have never seen this movie, but upon asking my husband if Robocop was worth $5, he said it certainly was and probably was worth even more.

I recommend The Transporter as it is a fantastic action based movie and my father quite enjoys it. I love this reviewer’s comment:

So much action, in fact, that the story doesn’t matter. It plays like a young man’s fantasy – fast cars, things that blow up, and a pretty girl to decorate the scene. The English actor, Jason Statham, is cast as the cooler than cool hero.

I would be remiss if I did not mention House of the Dead right before Halloween. It is probably the worst horror movie you will ever watch judging by the reviews on Amazon. However, if you are a fan of the horror genre then you will probably watch it anyway and cringe all the way at the bad acting and the plot that makes absolutely no sense.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Free OS & Android App – Injustice: Gods Among Us

Posted by on October 12, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Free OS & Android App   Injustice: Gods Among Us

This is a bit of a different post from our usual fair. Usually when we post app deals, they are something that costs money and are now free for a limited amount of time. Instead, I am posting about an app that should cost money, yet it is free for both Apple and Android devices. You following me?

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a title you may be familiar with from the consoles. It will cost you at least $20 to buy it for a console, yet the game in almost all its glory is free to play on both android and OS devices.

I also found this link for downloading Injustice onto your Kindle as well, should you have one of those.

Here is a quick rundown of the game. You collect superhero and super villain cards. Each character has a special ability that may benefit just them, or your entire team. A team consists of three super heroes or villains that fight together in a battle. They fight one at a time, and you tag them in and out, as you like. Each character has three super abilities and an energy bar fills them. You can upgrade these abilities for more damage. Characters can also be made elite by purchasing additional forms of their card – almost a form of layering.

You can also buy (or win/earn) gear cards to equip on your characters. That gear can also be upgraded using money and shards. Shards come from other gears you have shattered so choose your gear wisely. When a gear reaches level 11, it will evolve into a higher gear form with a new ability.

You can battle in an online system against other player’s armies or against the computer where you earn characters and far more experience and gold. Log out and back in each day to earn money, energy crystals, and characters. There are missions each day for online play and ranking well online earns you stuff each week.

This game is mind-blowingly awesome. The graphics are incredible, the superpowers are inventive (try Green Lantern’s level 3), and the addiction level is over the top. While the game has occasional glitches that need to be worked out, this game is so awesome it should not be free. The only reason this game gets any bad ratings from anyone is glitches that pissed people off or people feeling entitled to certain things from a game they are not even paying for. That being said, it still ranks a 4.4/5 on the Google Play Store.

This game is seriously better than any game I have paid for on my iPhone or my iPad. Do not waste your money on paid games… get this free.

P.S. Yes, there are in game purchases if you want. They are not necessary. We rank in the top 4% regularly without in game purchases.

P.P.S. I hate Doomsday.

Cineplex Family Favourites $2.50 Movies for October, November & December

Posted by on October 3, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Cineplex Family Favourites $2.50 Movies for October, November & December

If you are looking for something fun and inexpensive to do with your family for the the rest of the year on the weekend, you will want to checkout Cineplex Canada.  They are offereing awesome Family Favourite movies for just $2.50 every Saturday morning at 11:00 am.

Each movie will cost just $2.50 a person no matter how young or old you are.  That is a pretty big difference from the regular price of up to $15.99 a person depending on the theater. All of the family favourites are movies that have already been in the movie theaters and are coming back for a second showing. Some of them are actually in 3D and are still just $2.50 a person. They have released the list of Family Favourite movies for every Saturday until the end of the 2014 year and there are some pretty great ones.

Here is a look at all of the great movies you will be able to see for just $2.50 for the months of October, November and December:

  • October 4th: Evan Almighty
  • October 11th: Nanny McPhee Returns
  • October 25th: Despicable Me 2
  • November 1st: Rango
  • November 8th: Hotel For Dogs
  • November 15th: How To Train Your Dragon (3D)
  • November 22nd: Madagascar 3 Europe’s Most Wanted
  • November 29th: The LEGO Movie
  • December 6th: A Christmas Story
  • December 13th: The Polar Express (3D)
  • December 20th: Fred Claus

Believe it or not, I have watched every single movie on this list except for one!  I am so excited to bring my kids to some of these movies I am not sure where to start.  The three Christmas themed movies are all on my must see list every single year and I actually own all of them. Even though I own them on DVD, there is something so special about watching them on the big screen.  I know that my kids will be so excited to see The Polar Express in 3D.  Normally 3D movies would cost an arm and a leg and we would not be able to go to them.  For just $2.50 a person, it is completely affordable for my family of four to enjoy them.

This is the perfect fun family activity to do on the weekend when the weather is cooler in the winter months.  A family of four can enjoy a movie day for just $10.  All taxes are included so the $2.50 a person is the final cost.

Disney Movie Club: 4 Movies for $1 & Free Shipping*

Posted by on October 1, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Disney Movie Club: 4 Movies for $1 & Free Shipping*

The Disney movie Club has come to Canada, and with it, you can actually save a lot of money on Disney movie titles. I am here to tell you how to navigate the Disney Movie Club to maximize your savings and not spend unnecessary money.

The introductory offer at the Disney movie club gets you four movies for $1 plus free shipping. By signing up for the Disney movie club, you agree to:

buy 5 movies at regular Club prices in the next 24 months. Regular Club prices start at just $19.95 per DVD and $29.95 per Blu-ray for members who joined under a DVD enrollment offer. Shipping and processing is $4.95 for the first title in each shipment, $6.95 for a box set, and $2.95 for each additional title on the same order (plus GST/HST).

Got that? Now, there is an option when you buy your four movies for $1, to request a fifth movie for $14.95, which is half price if you are going to pay for blu ray movies. This fifth movie counts towards the five movies you need to buy at ‘regular price’, knocking the number of movies you will have to purchase down to just four.

There is also an option to get a sixth movie for $9.95 (which is totally worth it for Disney) when you place your initial order. However, this sixth movie does not count towards your required movie purchase. Even if you buy this sixth movie, you will still need to purchase another four at regular price. Whether you buy four, five, or six movies in the initial offer – shipping is free.

To summarize, the beginning offer looks like this:

  1. Get 4 movies for $1 + free shipping & buy 5 movies at full price
  2. Get 5 movies for $15.95 + free shipping & buy 4 movies at full price
  3. Get 6 movies for $25.90 + free shipping & buy 4 movies at regular price

Your best deals are #2 and #3.

Now, for the trickier part. They will email and mail you out their ‘feature title’ card every four weeks. You must reply within 10 days to switch out the title for something you want or they will automatically send you the feature title (and bill you). To get the best deal: select the remainder four movies you want from the Disney collection the first month of your subscription and then cancel your membership.

The hubby and I have signed up for the Disney Movie Club. We chose option #3 and received our six Blu Ray movies for just $25.90 and the second we get our first ‘featured title’ offer we are ordering the remaining four. That will cost us $29.95 each plus $4.95 shipping for the first DVD and $2.95 shipping for each extra DVD. In total, we will have paid $159.50 for 10 Disney Blu-Ray DVDs, which works out to approximately $16 per Blu Ray movie. With titles like My Neighbor Totoro, Frozen, The Incredibles, and more in our collection… you just cannot get these cheaper anywhere else. You also get a whole load of Disney Movie Reward points inside each movie – bonus!

Amazon Canada: The Judi Dench Collection Now $24.99 TODAY (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 21, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Amazon Canada: The Judi Dench Collection Now $24.99 TODAY (EXPIRED)

The Judi Dench collection is the daily deal at Amazon Canada today. Originally retailing for $124.98, this set of box set is on sale for $24.99 – Sunday only.

I am a huge fan of Judi Dench even though I have not seen half the movies she is famous for. I know her as M from James Bond and I recognize her from a few other more ‘unknown’ films. I also adored her in The Chronicles of Riddick. However, this collection includes some of her more famous roles where she plays the leading lady. They also span several decades and many feature a star-studded cast. This collection includes the following nine films:

  • The Cherry Orchard (1962)
  • Talking to a Stranger (1966)
  • Keep an Eye on Amelia (1973)
  • The Cherry Orchard (1981)
  • Going Gently (1981)
  • Ghosts (1987)
  • Make and Break (1987)
  • Can You Hear Me Thinking? (199)
  • Absolute Hell (1991)

I price compared this collection with a few places. The BBC Shop has the collection for $99.98, Best Buy’s price is $94.99, and Chapters Indigo sells it for $87.49. You are most certainly getting the best deal at Amazon Canada.

I was going down the list and I do not think I have seen any of these films actually. Reviewers on Amazon; however, are quite enjoying the set and the movies therein. The box set has received a total of 25 reviews for an average 4/5 stars so far. This reviewer said:

What a wonderful collection of Dame Judi’s work. I am particularly enjoying the works that I’ve not found individually: “Talking to a Stranger”, the 1962 “Cherry Orchard”, and “Keep an Eye on Amelie”. In each of these we see the young Judi (before the Dame) already totally entrancing us by being at once the character in each play and at the same time being herself. It must be magic.

Her take on the Madame Ranevsky role, in the 1981 version of “The Cherry Orchard”, is entirely hers and absolutely perfect for this viewer. Some of her later work in this collection includes: “Absolute Hell” and “Can You Hear Me Thinking”. You will also find, among the bonus features several radio plays, and three interviews with Dame Judi that give us all a closer glimpse and appreciation of the intelligence, and honesty behind the talent.

The bonus material will be great for anyone who just cannot get enough with the movies. I have never been one to watch bonus material, but my friend Robert often watches the bonus material before he even watches the movies!

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Cineplex Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Movies

Cineplex Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Movies

Cineplex Canada has set up a new way to pick your movie. Just figure out what mood you are in and they will give you a list of movie suggestions to fit your mood. Check out this new categorization system at the Cineplex Store and receive 15% off any movie purchase or rental.

Click here to choose your mood @ Cineplex Store Canada now

  • Coupon Code: MOODS15OFF
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

This coupon code works on both physical purchases and digital purchases/rentals as tested by our lovely Margarita. I checked out some of the moods to see how closely they would match my own choices.

I Need a Lift:

Sometimes we all need a lift, a movie that is a pick me up and helps us out of our funk. I liked the suggestions overall in this section. I found Happy Feet and Despicable Me 2 to be excellent suggestions for me as I usually turn to animated movies when I am feeling down. For those who are not into animated, they had several other suggestions. Happy Gilmore is a movie that will just make you laugh. I have also heard good things about Eat Pray Love (though I have never seen it).

A Song Coming On:

Granted, I am not in this mood often but I do rather like musicals. If you feel a song coming on, try out such instant classics as Chicago and Moulin Rouge. There are also some movies I am not so familiar with, like 8 Mile and Across the Universe. All have a strong musical theme and great songs.

Like Family Fun:

There are tons of movies you can see with your children and enjoy yourself. For family fun, they suggest Frozen, Epic, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and many more fantastic animated flicks. Iron Man 3 is the lone live action movie suggested. I think this is one of my favourite categories because so many of these movies are just genius. I am a big fan of the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs series: both one and two are good. The game is even pretty good!

As mentioned before, receive 15% off any of these movies whether you rent, purchase digitally, or purchase the physical copy. I have no idea when this offer ends so take advantage of it sooner rather than later. If you find it has expired, then please let us know.

Check out this and any future Cineplex coupon codes we track down in the coupon forum.

Amazon Canada: Pre-Order Downton Abbey Seasons 1,2,3 & 4 Set – $57 (Save $48)

Posted by on August 31, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Pre Order Downton Abbey Seasons 1,2,3 & 4 Set   $57 (Save $48)

Save a boatload of money at Amazon Canada when you pre-order the boxed set of Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Seasons 1, 2, 3 & 4, which is scheduled to be released in late October. The box set is priced at $104.99, but Amazon.ca is accepting pre-orders right now for just $56.99 for all four seasons.

This is a pre-order for the release on the 21st of October 2014. When you pre-order, that means you lock in your maximum price at that amount. No matter what price adjustments occur to the product, you will never pay more than what you pre-ordered the set for. However, pre-ordering does mean you can pay less. If you pre-order and the set is released for less than you paid, Amazon Canada will refund the difference. You will only pay the lowest amount.

I could not find this set on pre-order many places, but Chapters Canada does have it for $73.49. I tried HMV, but there was nothing there. This is for the DVD version, not for the Blu-ray.

The Blu-ray version is also an excellent deal and worth getting if you are converting all your DVDs over to Blu-ray like we are. Pick up Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Seasons 1,2,3 & 4 [Blu-ray] for just $64.99, originally $115.99. Again, I price compared with Chapters Indigo who has the Blu-ray set listed for $81.19.

I have never seen the series, so I really cannot advise you for or against it due to content. However, it does have one of my favourite actors in it: Maggie Smith. I have seen this woman in several films and she is quite brilliant (and I am not just talking Harry Potter). The first movie I ever saw her in is The Secret Garden.

Oddly enough there is one review, maybe from some person who received an early copy. The review starts as follows:

A new series of Downton is an annual treat, and as usual this year it is followed by the DVD compendium. This includes the 34 episodes to date. There are seven episodes from the first series, eight each from the second, third and fourth, plus the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Christmas specials of which the first was a dramatic masterpiece, but the second did not deliver in the same way in the opinion of most people although it ended dramatically. The third was not as good as the first but was good solid stuff which most will enjoy.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series Only $68 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on August 26, 2014 at 5:23 AM

 Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series Only $68 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

This week, Amazon.ca seems to be having quite a few great one-day only deals on various movies and TV boxsets. One of their headliners today is this DVD set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series. Regularly priced at $199.98, you can grab it today for only $67.99 with free super saver shipping!

The DVD boxset contains all glorious seven seasons of this cult classic TV show, that’s 144 episodes of vampire-ass kicking yumminess. So, technically that equates to only $0.47 per episode, if you look at it that way. Yes… you can probably watch many of these via streaming in some fashion or other (e.g. Netflix), but it’s not quite the same as owning the complete DVD boxset to stand proud on your shelf.

I can’t see the exact same set for sale anywhere else just now, for a valid price comparison. But if you’re buying the seasons individually, you’d be talking a lot more moolah (e.g. $153 @ Walmart).

I have a slightly older version of this Buffy boxset, it’s not quite as red and pretty as this edition. I bought the set about 10 years ago, and it took me a few months to get through all the episodes. To be honest, the show starts off pretty corny but then the characters and story-lines develop and it’s turned out to be one of my all-time favourite shows. Even my partner grew to like it – he detested the early episodes and wouldn’t watch it with me… but towards the end, he started to see a few of the amazing episodes and started getting into it.

One of my favourites was an episode called Hush. It scared me muchly. Here’s a wiki quote:

A group of fairy tale ghouls named “The Gentlemen” come to town and steal everyone’s voices, leaving them unable to scream when The Gentlemen cut out their hearts.

Freaky deaky. Did you have a fave episode of Buffy?

Needless to say, most reviews on Amazon.ca give this Buffy boxset a rating of 5 stars, with one person even stating that it consumed their life.

Cineplex Canada Store Coupon Code: 10% Off Digital Movie Purchase Or Rental

Posted by on August 25, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Cineplex Canada Store Coupon Code: 10% Off Digital Movie Purchase Or Rental

Receive 10% off any digital movie purchase or rental you make through the Cineplex Online Store.

Click here to browse the Cineplex store now

  • Coupon Code: trivia10off
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

So, this isn’t exactly the greatest coupon in the world, but we so rarely find coupon codes for Cineplex that it warrants some notice and appreciation. I have not yet attempted to rent or buy movies off Cineplex’s website, but I suppose that come the depths of winter when I do not want to emerge from my knitted socks and my wool blanket, then I will consider it.

When using this coupon code on a rental, you will save far less (dollar-wise) then if you used it on a digital movie purchase. For example, this exciting movie called Only Lovers Left Alive is $4.99 to rent in SD or $5.99 to rent in HD. To purchase the movie, you would pay $19.99 in SD and $24.99 in HD. Here is the breakdown of funds saved:

  • SD rental: Save 50 cents – Pay $4.49
  • HD rental: Save 68 cents – Pay $5.31
  • SD purchase: Save $2 – Pay $17.99
  • HD purchase: Save $2.50 – Pay $22.49

I picked this movie out because it sounds like the perfect late night movie: curl up with your cat, a bowl of popcorn, a hot chocolate, and a box of Kleenex for this vampire movie based around the long-time lovers Adam and Eve (this movie has got to be cheesy with names like that). This movie probably falls firmly in the category of chic-flick.

Of course, if you have taste, then you should check out some of the more recent releases and popular movies out right now. Are you looking for the ultimate deals on movies? There are two sections you want to visit at the Cineplex Store. The Deals of The Week will give you discounts on Blu-ray and DVDs. There is also a DVDs for $4.99 section.

Do be careful though, this coupon code is only valid for digital purchases and not for physical copies of movies. There are some great deals for both in the Cineplex Store, but this coupon will only apply to the digital arena. To use this coupon, you will need to sign up for a Cineplex Store account that is separate from your Cineplex.com and your Scene accounts.

There is no shipping, as all digital copies download to your computer.

Check out this and any future Cineplex coupon codes we track down in the coupon forum.

The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series DVD Only $73 @ Amazon! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on August 23, 2014 at 8:00 AM

The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series DVD Only $73 @ Amazon! (EXPIRED)

I got an email this morning about a one day deal at Amazon. They’re offering the complete series of The Twilight Zone for only $72.99 in a DVD collection and that comes with free super saver shipping!

Originally priced at $199.99, that’s a $127 discount. While sometimes those “original” prices seem to be really high, I’ve price compare to see if this is really a good deal. You can purchase the very same DVD boxset for $140 @ Chapters, $149 @ BestBuy, $200 @ HMV, so this appears to be a super price from Amazon.ca today.

If you are so inclined, there’s also an offer on the blu-ray series – you can purchase it for $148.99. There’s quite a price difference between DVD and blu-ray, eh?

I clearly recall watching this TV show when I was younger, it had some fantastic episodes. I first discovered it when I was a teenager when they were making some of the more modern versions. I then went back and made sure I watched many of the older original shows, including the famous William Shatner episode, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet. “There’s… something… on… the… wing!” Classic. By today’s standards, I guess they’re not quite a suspenseful or scary… but they’re excellent shows with excellent writing, with plotlines such as:

A convict, living alone in an asteroid, receives from the police a realistic woman-robot.

Hilarious!

I believe The Twilight Zone went on to inspire many movies and TV shows with very similar plots. I was reading this thread on Toptenz.net about that. It stats that many popular movies like Child’s Play, Liar Liar, Poltergeist and Cube were all based on old Twilight Zone plots.

I think this boxset would be excellent for a Twilight Zone weekend marathon… complete with lots of junk food.

Ontario Fun Passes: Kids Free With Adult @ 19 Attractions

Ontario seems to be the province in Canada that gets all the best deals.  If you live in Ontario, or you are planning on visiting this summer, there are some great deals with Ontario Fun Passes.  Right now, they are offering free child’s admission to a variety of activities when you purchase an adult ticket.

Currently, Ontario Fun Passes is offering this buy one get one free deal for 19 various attractions around Ontario.  This is a great way to do activities as a family this summer and save in the process.  It can be quite pricey to do different attractions with the kids, so buying them through Ontario Fun passes allows at least your kids to be free.

There is no charge or fee whatsoever to sign up for your Ontario Fun pass, so all of these deals are absolutely free! To redeem your Fun Pass, all you need is the name of your school board, your postal code and email address.

Here are just a few of the places you will save at:

  • Art Gallery of Ontario
  • Discovery HarbourFort Henry national Historic Site of Canada
  • Old Fort Erie
  • Ontario Heritage Trust (five attractions)
  • Ontario Parks
  • Ontario Science Centre
  • Royal Botanical Gardens
  • Royal Ontario Museum

Actually, that list is less than half of the different attractions you will save at since there are 19 in total.  The free kids passes will be free when you purchase either an adult or senior pass.

Additionally, when you get your passes you will also get a $2 discount on a daily parking permit at participating Ontario Parks. The total savings for families add up to over $185, which is pretty incredible!

The Ontario Fun Pass itself is valid starting starting now until October 31st. The actual attractions that it is valid for, though, may have different dates of operation. You will need to decide which ones you want to go to and plan around those dates.

Free Swimming This Summer From Tim Hortons

Free Swimming This Summer From Tim Hortons

I love all the different charity work that Tim Hortons does and this time they are offering a freebie for young and old.  During March break they offered free skating and this summer is something that will cool you off as well. For the months of July and August, Tim Hortons has paired with some Canadian pools and is offering free public swimming!

The lucky provinces for this deal are Ontario and Alberta.  In Alberta the free swim is actually starting early and is being offered this week as well on June 27th, which is a nice little bonus.  The time for the free swimming will vary for each different location so make sure to check the participating pools before you head in for your free swim.

There is no coupon to get this deal you just have to show up at the free swim times.  You can go in as many times as you would like and there is no age limit for these free swims.  It is perfect to pass the time as a family and get some exercise in the process because your entire family will be free!

Keep your eyes peeled for more free deals like this one from Tim Hortons because they seem to do one per season.

The fact that Tim Hortons is sponsoring this free summer swim schedule is just one more reason they are a great company!
