Telus Canada: Student Deals & Free $50 Pre-Paid Visa

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Telus Canada: Student Deals & Free $50 Pre Paid Visa

Telus Canada is offering a free $50 pre-paid Visa card, free wi-fi and installation, and student internet starting at just $25 per month for a year.

I blogged about the Shaw deals for students on Thursday, so today I dug up what Telus is offering. Telus and Shaw dominate the Canadian internet market, thus their deals are the ones you will want to compare to get the best student deal on internet.

I assume that internet prices differ by province, as when I tested this deal out, there was no $25 per month plan. All plans for my area in BC started at $30. Here is what I found (prices subject to change depending on area):

Telus Internet 15

This package gives you 3 to 15Mbps download speeds and up to 1Mbps upload speed, with up to 150 GB monthly data. It costs $30 a month in BC, but I have no idea why this package is even offered as the next package up is the exact same price for more goodies. Is this a joke, Telus?

Telus Internet 25

As I mentioned above, this package is the same price as the useless package deal above: $30. The other package should not even be a consideration because Internet 25 is far superior. Receive 5 to 25Mbps download speeds, up to 2.5Mbps upload speed, with 250 GB of monthly data. This is essentially the same as the middle Shaw package except the $50 free Visa sweetens the pot substantially. The other major factor in Telus’s favour: this agreement is for an entire year instead of eight months. You enjoy an extra four months of savings over Shaw’s offer.

Telus Internet 50

Enjoy 20 to 50Mbps download speeds, up to 10Mbps upload speed, with 400 GB per month of data. This package trumps Shaw’s Broadband 50 by being $10 cheaper at only $40 per month. It also wins because it is a twelve-month agreement and the package includes a free Telus Wi-Fi Plus range booster ($100 value). You are seriously scoring with either this or the Internet 25 deal.

I have watched Telus and Shaw battle it out on the student internet front for the last few years. If you are on a really tight budget, I still suggest the Shaw 10 bundle at only $20 a month. However, if you want more bang for your buck, then I think Telus is the clear winner with their Internet 25 and Internet 50 packages. That free $50 pre-paid Visa card does not hurt either.

Black’s Canada: $150 Visa Gift Card With Koodo or Telus Activation

Posted by on April 9, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Blacks Canada: $150 Visa Gift Card With Koodo or Telus Activation

Black’s Canada is handing out free money for activating the new smartphone you were already going to get! What’s not to love?

All you have to do to get the $150 Visa gift card is activate a new Koodo plan or a two or three year Telus plan. If you happen to be going with Telus, Black’s will also throw in their “Prints for Life” package for as long as you have the plan. That gives you 1000 free prints per year. This is an in-store only deal but you’re gonna wanna go down to the store to look at the phones anyway.

I think Black’s is doing something very cool. It would be very easy for a photography store to go under nowadays. When your business has traditionally been printing photos and framing, the new digital era is kinda scary. They’ve done all the standard stuff that you need to do in that business but they have gone further. Instead of just accepting digital images and printing them off, they’ve expanded into digital picture frames and mobile devices among others. The mobile phone thing, I think, was their best move. They have realized that the new camera of the masses is the smartphone. With a good camera on your phone, you don’t really need to go get a camera anymore.

For more savings from Black’s check out our Black’s Coupon Code page.

Scotiabank Canada: Low Interest & Student Credit Cards

Posted by on February 10, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Scotiabank Canada: Low Interest & Student Credit Cards

Scotiabank has two interesting credit card officers I wanted to share with our Moosers. They have a no annual fee student credit card with an annual cash back feature (which is awesome) and they also offer a low interest no fee credit card if you are not a student.

The Student card offer is really good. It is for students only, ages 18-25 years. Here are the features:

  • Earn up to 1% money back every year on the purchases you’ve made with your card
  • Interest free grace period of at least 21 days on purchases
  • 20% discount rates at Avis Car Rental
  • Take advantage of other VisaPerks
  • Interest rate of 19.99% on purchases and 21.99% on balance transfers and cash advances

I suggest never carrying a balance. The 1% money back every year is awesome because student expenses can really add up – and that added cash back once a year is fairly nice.

This is a great card if you need a low interest credit card, without any bells and whistles. If you DO carry a balance on a higher interest rate card, it might be a good idea to switch and save yourself some dollars. It has an annual fee, but the money you will be saving in interest will highly outweigh the annual fee. Here are the features:

  • 11.99% interest rate on purchases and on balance transfers and cash advances
  • Interest free grace period of at least 21 days on purchases
  • 20% discount rates at Avis Car Rental
  • $29 annual fee
  • 0.99% interest rate on cash advances and balance transfers for the first six months for accounts opened by Feb. 28th

Carrying a balance is never a good idea – but if you have to carry a balance it is best to get onto a card that charges you the least amount of interest.

Visa Perks: 25% Off Crabtree & Evelyn Printable Coupon

Recently I mentioned how LouLou has teamed up with MasterCard to bring you fabulous deals for the next month. Well if you have a Visa card, don’t feel left out. Visa has awesome perks all the time. Check out some of these deals I found from Visa.

Right now they have a fabulous printable coupon to receive 25% off your purchase (regular priced) at Crabtree & Evelyn!

The C&E store locator is useless because it only lists 1 location in London Ontario, and yet I have seen them in BC and in the mall that is 15 minutes from me! So my suggestion is contact admin@crabtree-evelyn.ca if you need to find a store or just google it.

This is one of the highest discounts that VisaPerks offers – and it is fab. You are essentially making your own sale from regular priced merchandise just buy paying with your Visa.

Coupon expires 31st, October 2011

More Magazine: 1 Year Sub For Only $13.98 (Visa)

More Magazine: 1 Year Sub For Only $13.98 (Visa)

Does anyone here read More magazine? They have a special offer available if you want to pay for a year’s subscription with your Visa card – it’s only $13.98.

They say that this is a 63% saving on the cover price. I am not sure of the cover price as I don’t read More Magazine myself, and I cannot seem to find the regular cost online. I noticed that on the normal subscription page, the subscription cost is $20 for a year, so I think the $13.98 offer is very good!

3v Visa Vouchers Review

Posted by on February 24, 2010 at 8:00 PM

3v Visa Vouchers Review

3V Visa is a pre-paid voucher that can be used just like a credit card anywhere online that Visa is accepted. I recently got the chance to try out a $20 voucher… just as a tester to see what it was like, and I thought I would share my thoughts here.

I received the Visa voucher and I went to the site and clicked on the “Redeem a 3v Visa activation code,” at the top of the page. The screen prompted me to first add in my voucher code, enter in my email address, make a password, and then all my personal information like name and address etc.  They posted on screen my 16 digit number, and then emailed the security details to me. Then all I had to do was spend it!

I bought some smellies on Yvesrocher.ca, and it was just the same as using my normal credit card.

For those of you who are a bit wary of sharing your credit card details online while shopping, the 3V Visa voucher might be a good idea.

P.S. I also noticed that they are giving away a $20 voucher every week on the 3V Visa facebook group.

Bluenotes Canada: 15% Discount In Store

Posted by on February 16, 2010 at 11:00 AM

I’m sharing a printable coupon which you can use in-store at Bluenotes Canada. It will get you a 15% discount there. While this obviously isn’t as good as the 50% online offer yesterday, some people prefer to shop in-store, so every little discount will help.

As you can see from the small print on the coupon itself, it only applies if you are paying with a visa card – but let’s face it, that applies to a lot of the deal-hunting Bargainmoosers on here.

I have quite a few pieces of clothing from Bluenotes Canada, I really like them as a clothes store. My grey stripy cardigan is well-loved!

Expires 31st December 2010!
