Shoppers Drug Mart Spring Beauty Gala April 30th *Advanced Notice*

SDM beauty Gala April 2016

If you want to change your makeup look for the warmer weather and are not sure what to buy, the spring beauty gala will be held on Saturday 30th April.  Tickets to the event are available for $10, with $5 donated to Beauty Gives Back with a makeover and skin consultation included.  The remaining $5 is redeemable on any purchase made at Shoppers Drug mart during the event as a one day coupon plus stores will have gifts with your ticket purchase.

Makeovers and skin consultations vary by store.  I regularly shop at three local Shoppers Drug Mart stores, the one that does the best makeovers and has a wider selection of high end brands does the bare advertised specials for these event while the smaller store bakes goodies, holds additional contests and gets extra freebies for customers. One even had someone doing manicures for an additional donation.

The gift bags have varied over the years and also vary by store.  In one, they had clear bags where you could choose what you wanted while the fall one had stapled white bags and one of the lipsticks I received had even been used so it is worth finding that perfect store for this event.

Shoppers Drug Mart usually as a 20x beauty promotion and brand offers to coincide with their beauty galas so expect that at the end of the month.

Win Cash for Free Daily at Cash Dazzle

Over 46 million people choose to play sweepstakes, with a core of 5 million making a habit of it. Unlike gambling, sweepstakes are free to enter and give people a way to get something for nothing. At Cash Dazzle, they give away an average of $1,000 every day to lucky winners who are playing games, having fun, and winning cash. The concept of sweepstakes and contests is understood the world over. Any eligible person can enter by completing a short action, like Following someone on Twitter, submitting a recipe, or filling out a short form. Although sweepstakes today are used as a promotional tool for companies, causes, and organizations, they've served several historical purposes. It was contests that spurred on navigational discoveries, the popularization of the potato to avoid famine, and the invention of the tractor. Most of these contests were sponsored by governments, like when Napoleon Bonaparte offered a cash prize to find a better way to preserve foods for his faraway troops. The winning submission was a method of boiling and sealing food in a vessel, or what we now know as canning. Cash Dazzle has sponsors who pay to have their ads seen by members like you. You'll receive free tokens for viewing the ads during the 1st 5 days of membership and still earn more for new activities after that. The Cash Dazzle team wants to create the best user experience with games are easy to play and fun. Register as a free member now and play for free to win cash at Cash Dazzle.

All The Really Good Deals Are On Facebook….

February 26th, 2012 No Comments   Source smartcanucks.ca, Uncategorized

mine

I have been researching/posting deals for awhile now and it seems that exclusive Facebook offers are on the rise.  In fact, according to my rough calculations, nearly 40% of all the deals I come across are found on a Facebook page.  And what's more, they tend to be really good deals. 

The growing trend in the retail industry is to have consumers "Like" a company Facebook page.  There are a few reasons for this but the most glaringly obvious is advertising.  Yes, these ingenious companies have found a way to reach the consumer one-on-one, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  But first they have to get you on board. 

This is where all the really great deals come in.  It seems companies will do anything for you to "Like" them.  They offer high value coupons, exclusive deals, VIP sales, shopping parties, contests and more.  And really...who isn't going to click the "Like" button to get a free product?  But, it doesn't seem to stop there.  In order to get many of these great deals you must "Share" your new relationship with select Facebook friends.  Of course, many of us want to let others know of a great deal (and we want the deal ourselves), so we "Share" with the five people who mean the most to us and well, there you have it.  The company has won and then won again.  They have made the consumer happy by providing them with a great deal and they have capitalized on their opportunity for free advertising.  And when it comes right down to it, free advertising is everything.  It is much cheaper to offer a few coupons or a trip than spend millions on television, newspaper or billboard advertisements. 

But will all these great deals last forever?  Likely, no.  Many companies are just starting out on Facebook.  Their pages are only months old and they need a few people to "Like" them.  Once they have a certain number of "Likes" the frequency and quality of the exclusive offers will diminish.  Over time the deals will become similar to those found in the company newsletters...sporadic and mediocre.

However, in the meantime, it seems Facebook deals are everywhere.  They are so good, some of the most anti-Facebook consumers out there are signing up to score a coupon or freebie.  It almost seems that joining Facebook is no longer an option.  Sort of like owning a computer.  Remember when that was an option? 

So, what do you think?  Do you feel all the really great deals are on Facebook?  Do you think these fantastic offers will last forever?  Have you joined Facebook just to order high value coupons or enter contests?  Please comment below!

Smart Canucks Canada Free Giveaway Contest: Snore Guard and Ultimate Sleep Basket

December 14th, 2011 No Comments   Source smartcanucks.ca

snoring

Wow, do we ever have a treat for 5 lucky readers!  Snore Guard has just launched in Canada and has provided us with 5 Snore Guards and 5 Ultimate sleep baskets which contain: aromatherapy oils, high-quality sheets,  and a relaxation audio cd.  Approx. retail value of each kit is $200!

Snore Guard is a highly effective patented intraoral device specifically designed to help eliminate snoring by gently holding the jaw forward to allow air passages to remain open during sleep. It is easy to fit and comfortable to wear, making snorers more likely to use it regularly and providing relief for both the snorer and anyone within earshot. In independent clinical studies, 99 percent reported reduced snoring and 50 percent reported elimination of snoring with the use of Snore Guard.  Snoring affects up to 45 percent of adults, according to the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology. Not only does snoring interrupt the sleep patterns of snorers, it's also disruptive for their spouses or partners. In a recent survey conducted by oral care products manufacturer Ranir LLC, 70 percent of spouses or partners of snorers reported adverse effects from snoring, including anxiety, irritability, tension and restless sleep and 20 percent said they cope with the problem by sleeping in a separate room.   Snore Guard can now be purchased at most of Canada's major retailers for less than $60. Consumers can find money saving coupons in their local newspapers, magazines and through targeted email campaigns.

To enter simply tell us if you have a problem with snoring in your household.

Rules and Regulations:

* One entry per household i.e. you may only leave 1 comment on the blog. If you want to discuss anything or share your thoughts please include it in that 1 comment.
