If you’ve never ever price matched before…

Know you’re absolutely missing out.

Not only on great savings…

But also on the rush that you feel when you score a deal.

A deal YOU made happen.

If you want to know what price matching is all about - and HOW it works - check out our ultimate guide to price matching in Canada.

And another thing. I’ve got something cooking for you next week.

We’re starting a NEW challenge. Check out the sneak peek right here:

Save Money Challenge #3 - The Price Match Edition.

Tell me - ARE YOU IN?

Why?

Because money is all about mindset.

I made a simple choice to price match at Staples more than a decade ago...

I didn’t know it at that time - but the ripple of effect of that SINGLE choice was life changing. That rush I felt empowered me to take charge of my money in so many other ways.

For easy reference, I’ve updated and summarized the price matching policies of these Canadian retailers (the original post was more than two years ago).

When the challenge starts next week, you can check back here to see the policies of your favourite stores.

5 Ways to Save Money on Airport Parking and Transit

5waystosavemoneyonairportparkingandtransit.jpg

Travel costs can fly high - even on the very first day of your long-awaited vacation.

The one thing that’s often overlooked?

It’s the cost of going between house, airport and hotel.

Paying for parking at the airport adds up after a few days. And yes - it can be expensive. But then again…

I live on the opposite end of the city from the airport so a cab ride is heavy on the wallet as well. When I travel, this is one of the aspects of a trip that requires me to plan ahead.

One strategy I use is to try to stay at hotels that offer a complimentary airport shuttle when we arrive in our destination. But this solution may not be for everyone.

So what are other alternatives?

Consider these 5 ideas...

Your Free Money - 14 Ways To Claim It Now

yourfreemoney-14waystoclaimitnow.jpgIs free money too good to be true?

If someone comes up to you and offers you free money, no strings attached - what would you do?

I know. You’d probably keep walking in the other direction…But here’s the thing:

There is actually a ton of free money available to most Canadians just waiting to be taken advantage of.

But first - let’s answer a couple of questions...

Where does (legit) free money come from?

It could come from the government, your employer, a business looking for new customers - or simply by choosing to give your bank less money (because they have enough of it for goodness sake!).

What do I require from you to get access to all this money?

The willingness to spend a little time and take ACTION. You need to get organized and follow through on making some simple changes to your life. Then, watch the free money and savings start rolling in.

If that sounds good to you - then let’s get started.

magicJack In Canada - My Review 5 Years Later!

magicjackincanada-5yearslater.jpgI first reviewed magicJack more than 5 years ago when I chose it to replace my home phone service while going internet-only.

It was a rocky start - but once I ironed out all the issues the lack of monthly phone bills has been amazing!

Home phone service costs about $30 + tax every month. Five years worth of that is $2,070.

With magicJack, I paid $50 for the original device which came with 12 months of service and cost around $20 per year thereafter + $10 a year for a Canadian phone number (all figures in US Dollars).

A couple of years later, I decided to purchase an upgraded magicJack Plus so I could plug it directly into my router without needing to keep the computer on. That one cost $80 including shipping and offered another 12 months of free service. The price of additional service for the new device rose to $35 per year + $10 for my Canadian number.

All told, I’ve spent $429 CAD at today’s currency conversion rates for devices and service over the last 5 years - an impressive savings of 79% when compared to the cost of a regular home phone.

I also enjoyed big additional savings from the unlimited long distance to Canada & USA included with magicJack and the long list of calling features it has at no extra charge.
