Smart Saver Vancouver

Hands up, who starts the day with a freshly brewed coffee? If you are a coffee lover, then Vancouver is certainly a paradise for you! Coffee places are literally at every corner. Even if you wouldn’t mention coffee as your favourite drink, a coffee place is an awesome place to meet people, clear your mind or even take your laptop and get some work done. The downside of all those visits is of course the costs. So here are some tips to lower your coffee place expenses!

34628291_1746856278740728_6024587850580754432_nFirst of all, you can save some money if you order a regular coffee instead of a fancy latte. Just pimp the simple coffee yourself with as much milk, sugar, cinnamon or cacao as you want. All these extras are usually available for free here, so just be your own barista!

Starbucks is one of the most famous coffee brands in the world and they are just everywhere in Vancouver. At Starbucks, you can already receive a small discount if you bring your own mug. It does not only help the environment, but you also have to pay ten cents less for your drink. Doesn’t seem like a lot, I know, but if you do that ten times you already saved a loonie for your next coffee. 😉

You can easily join the Starbucks Rewards program. All you need to do is register a physical Starbucks Card, Teavana Card, Evolution Fresh Card or Starbucks Card eGift online and create an account. Once you have registered, you collect stars for every dollar you spent, which you can redeem for free food and drinks. Also, you can profit from monthly special offers. Last month for example, we enjoyed cheap, delicious Frappuccino’s at the office. Next to that, you get a reward for your birthday and free in-store refills. You can check it out here.

There are also plenty of delicious non-coffee drinks available at coffee places. Blenz is currently offering a special to celebrate the start of the summer season. Bring your friends and enjoy one of their Iced Tea Lemonades. The flavours sound delicious: mango ginger, strawberry cucumber and melon berry. You pay one and get the second lemonade for free! This offer is valid from June 5 to June 18 between 2 – 5pm at all Blenz Coffee locations.

I hope you enjoy some good coffees and lemonades, guys!

See you tonight at The Relish!

Mike and Edith Sims started making their musical appearances in several lounges and cabarets back in Paris of 1959.  For the next twenty years, the couple toured with U.S.O. and then moved on to performing in jazz clubs in America. Their love of jazz music and cafes motivated them to fuse their hobbies and passion together in 1979 where they gave birth to the now, popular, quaint café called CheeseCake Etc. With their family’s secret cheesecake recipe in one hand and the other on the piano, Mike and Edith have made their café one of the most buzzed about places in Vancouver.

INTERNeX’s PR team is excited to share a night with you at Cheesecake Etc, one of the many hidden amazing places in Vancouver. Hurry and email us! Don’t miss out on this perfect opportunity to meet other candidates and to just sit back and enjoy that scrumptious piece of cheesecake.
