How was your weekend?

Friday 9 pm. We were sitting in the park. Waiting for the party to begin. Only ten minutes left. Our tickets work, we are in. The party can start. That was the moment my weekend could finally begin.

This Friday we went to DubVision, a party in the Harbour Event Centre. DubVision is a DJ duo from the Netherlands. We went in with our free tickets we received. When we walked in around 11:30 pm, the club was still not that crowded. We bought a drink and the club was becoming more crowded. There were two DJs playing nice music, but we still don’t know if that were guys or girls. There was another DJ playing music before DubVision was on stage. After a couple hours we went home.

Rise and shine, next day has arrived. After all the stuff I needed to do, we went to the sushi bar to eat sushi together. Afterwards we took the skytrain to Granville street where the pub crawl began. We first went to the Cinema Public House, where we began the night with a drink. After 45 minutes it was time to go to the Morrissey, where we sat on the couch singing German songs. So now we had the Oktoberfest part from the pub crawl. We went to Donnellans where we had our own space with tables and bar. We closed the night in the club Belmont Bar. After we danced our asses of, it was time to say goodbye.

Sunday was a lazy day. We went to a jazz thing in a church. After 30 minutes we saw it all, so we decided to go for a coffee at Take Five. Tip: the coffee with Caramel and Sea salt is actually salty. We sat and talked till it was time to go home for dinner. Hope your weekend was great as well.

See you at PuB NiGHT!

As this weekend was quite expensive for some of us, it might be a good idea to save some money again. Especially now that there are a lot of events and trips coming up.

An app that will help you save money is Checkout 51. Through Checkout 51, you can save money on certain brands. This is how it works: sign up via the internet or download the app through the App Store or Google Play. After this you make a photo of your bill and upload it at this app. If the amount of $20 has been reached, the company will send you the money. Our PR member, Danielle has been using the app in the Netherlands as well and confirms that it really works. The app has different offers every week, which will be changed every Thursday. You can see these offers at the app or at the website. One of the current offers, for example, is buy 3 Pringles and get $2 back. There is one catch though, for some of the offers, the items have to be on the same receipt.

You might have passed it already while going to our office in the International Village Mall. This is of course about the one and only Yoko Yaya! Yoko Yaya is a Chinese store where you can get almost everything you need. From beauty products to kitchen wear, you can find it there. A lot of their products is only $2, so if you just moved in, this is the place to be!16650234_10208214332296985_405893829_n

As most of us cannot survive the morning without a coffee, this offer cannot be forgotten. If you buy a cup of coffee at Tim Hortons, you can win several prices such as a television, a car or a coffee. Most people only win a coffee. However, me and Danielle had the bad luck to not win anything at all. This is mostly a chance to save money for people who buy coffee anyway and therefore have the chance to save money. Furthermore, the coffees at Tim Hortons are not even that expensive, so it might be an idea to check it out anyway.

Try to save as much money as you can, so you can spend it on our Kelowna trip!

Craving for something cheap? Then this is the right place for you! INTERNeX has been busy all week searching for good promotions or cheap places to share with you.

Used to getting coffee in the morning? A small speciality coffee is only $1 at the Mc Donald’s at the moment, so it is definitely worth it to switch coffee shops for a while just for this promotion. This promotion started at the 23rd of January and will last till the end of this week, so use this moment to enjoy a 16467040_1625292964152815_2118773967_ncheap coffee for once. Getting used to having coffee at the Mc Donald’s after this promotion? No worries, if you buy 7 coffees, you get the next one for free. You only need to keep the reward card and put the stickers from your cup on it. The reward card is also on your cup! Besides this promotion the Mc Donald’s is also offering digital coupons, which you can download from the site. However, you can also download the Mc Donald’s app for weekly promotions.

Today it is wings Wednesday, so that means you can get wings for a cheap price at restaurants all over Vancouver. The cheapest price that we found is 33 cents per wings in the Famous Warehouse. However, it is also worth checking out when it is not a Wednesday, as all their meals are $5 and therefore a good choice to go to if you want to go out for dinner, but already spent a lot of money.

Not into a coffee or food? At Cinema Public House and The Butcher & Bullock got $2 Tuesdays, when they offer beers for $2. So that means you can get wasted without spending too much money. Almost sounds too good to be true, right?

If you have not found the Dollarama yet, you definitely have to check it out as well. You can almost get everything at Dollarama, from baking forms to food and much more. If you need anything for your housing, first check out Dollarama before going to another place, as it can save you lots of money. Dollarama, your best friend from now on!

Every dollar counts, so keep these tips in mind when spending your money!

It’s Suuunday again and so it’s time to smart saver.

You just want to get a snack and a coffee but don’t want to spend so much money? You don’t have to, if you will join Tim Hortons for a coffee and a snack. For a muffin and a pretzel Bagel ( yeees, right! They offers pretzel Bagel) you have to spend only $3. The coffee is much cheaper than at Starbucks and even better. You can get there all snack you can imagine. From bagels in different versions, sandwiches and wraps to cookies, muffins and a great variety of delicious donuts. Go, have a  yummi break at Tim Hortons and safe some money.

Since the rain starts its the best way to got to the cinema. Unfortunately it’s a little bit expensive, as you pay $11-13 for one movie in Vancouver. Buuut not on Tuesday. Tuesday is movie day in Vancouver, so you’re able to see one movie for only $7,20. I really recommend the Scotiabank Theatre Vancouver, because there you have the opportunity to get popcorn with different flavors, such as chocolate caramel, cheese, marshmallow and much more.
The cinema is the best way to make these rainy days more interesting and for those, who aren’t English native speaker, it’s a easy way to improve your English skills by watching movies in English.
Get out and enjoy your stay even though it’s raining.

We wish you a great start in the next week.

Review: Trip to Deep Cove

On Sunday it was time for our trip to Deep Cove, one of the nicest places around Vancouver. Unfortunately we were not lucky with the weather, it was a really cloudy and rainy Sunday.  But in hope that the weather will change later we decided to make us on the way to Deep Cove by bus. After the 45 minutes bus drive we arrived at Deep Cove but the weather did not change but that was no reason for us to do not enjoy this Sunday at Deep Cove.

 

First we went to a small, cozy cafe where we all had some coffee, muffins and of course doughnuts. Already before we went to Deep Cove a lot of people told us, that we should try the doughnuts there, they were right. When you go to Deep Cove, you definitely should try them as well! We used this “coffee time” to talk about a lot of different things, like our next plans, what to do on a rainy day in Vancouver and gave each other some tips and helps.  It was really nice in this cafe, so we stayed a really long time in this cafe. Later we walked along the coast of Deep Cove, it was still rainy but still nice to see this nice place. We definitely will do this trip again with sun and some kayaking or paddling! Afterwards we took the bus back to Downtown, most of us used the rest of the day for some shopping or even other activities in Vancouver.

 

Hope you all had a nice weekend and a great start in this sunny week. See you at the upcoming events!
