Best Company in Canada 2010

Based on your nominations, it was hard identifying the 3 best companies in Canada last year (2010). Therefore I've decided to open the stage for more than just three companies and let your votes decide who the best of the best is!

I'll try writing something nice about each company in one sentence.

Amazon.ca - For lowering the free shipping threshold to $25.

ClearlyContacts.ca - For helping revolutionize the concept of buying glasses and contact lenses online at very inexpensive prices and offering thousands of free pairs of glasses this year.

Costco Canada - For reasonable prices, consistency and great customer service.

Indigo / Chapters - For providing a relaxed and quality atmosphere where we can shop for books.

London Drugs -  For continuing to support coupon stacking and the online deals communities.

Lululemon - For supporting a healthy lifestyle and combining this with fashionable high quality clothing and super-friendly staff to create a unique and winning formula.

Porter Airlines - For offering first class-like travel to Canadians at economy class prices

Mountain Equipment Coop - For their return policy and numerous "Made in Canada" products.

Shoppers Drug Mart - For offering the highest value rewards program in the country, the Shoppers Optimum Points.

Now please take a second to vote for Canada's Best Company of 2010 below. If you leave a company about one of these companies please focus on the positives since this is what this topic is about :D

Smart Canucks Canada Gift Ideas Day 3: That hard to buy for “little kid”

December 9th, 2010 No Comments   Source smartcanucks.ca, Uncategorized

curious_george_canada

Whether you have kids or not a lot of us that celebrate Christmas with gifts at one time or another end up having to buy for a little kid who already appears to have everything. Clothes just aren't any fun!

A while ago my son played this game during a speech assessment and he had so much fun playing it. I liked it too, a treasure hunt of sorts!

The Curious George Discovery Beach Boardgame. Search the Seashore for Hidden Treasures! Join Curious George on a seashore scavenger hunt! Search for sea creatures and colorful treasures hidden below 5 secret beach locations. Find the most treasures to win! No mess! Treasures and "sand" stay sealed

 The suggest age is 3-8  but I can see an older child of 10 enjoying this game. I even had fun searching for "treasure."

I did find the game online @ Chapters for $29.99 but you can use the 5 off code "debit5" if you pay via interac making it 24.99. Free Shipping with orders over $25.  Or if you live near a Chapters you can print a 25% off one item coupon and pay $22.49 provided it's in stock.

Win a $500 Chapters.Indigo.ca Gift Card

November 30th, 2010 No Comments   Source TotallyFreeStuff
Chapters, Indigo, and Coles are your stores for entertainment in the form of music, film, and literature. Sign up to hear about top Canadian contests from Contest Hound, and you'll be entered to win a free $500 for their online store. The first Coles bookstore opened its doors in 1940. Founded by the Cole brothers, their Toronto flagship store would go on to become the original book superstore. In 1995, Coles joined with UK competitor SmithBooks to form Chapters Inc. This merger allowed Chapters to quickly become the largest book retailer in Canada. Simultaneously, Indigo Books & Music succeeded as a booklover's cultural department store, maintaining a small emporium feeling lost in the superstores of the time. When Indigo and Chapters became one, each shared its best features with the other, creating 247 locations offering comfort, selection, and small bookstore charm. You could shop their online goods for free with a $500 gift card. Simply sign up to Contest Hound, and you'll gain free entry into their Chapters Indigo sweepstakes.

Chapters Indigo Follows Amazon Canada and Lowers Shipping Threshold To $25

October 12th, 2010 No Comments   Source smartcanucks.ca, Uncategorized

copy_cat

Chapters Indigo followed Amazon’s announcement this morning and lowered their free shipping when you spend $25!  I figured Chapter’s would follow suit but I didn’t think it would be this quickly.  Now all we have to do is sit back and wait for Best Buy and Future shop to follow!  Click here to check out Chapters and Amazon.  This is so exciting to me because I’m always trying to find a “few smaller things” to get up to $39.  Now if I just want a book and a movie I don’t have to worry as I’ll already have the free shipping!

Do you think Future Shop and Best Buy will follow suit?
