Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s time again for another Smart Saver and therefore time for some serious online browsing! This week’s tip is one we give you guys at every orientation but I thought I elaborate on this one.

The website craigslist: You might want to ask – what is this craigslist? Well, it is a website for local classifieds and forums and largely, it is free. On that site, you can find about anything, jobs, housing, services, and – most important for us – free stuff. It started out as an email list in 1995 and was founded by Craig Newmark. Their office is in San Francisco, CA and at the moment about 30 staff members help to organize all these awesome offers for you guys. Another good thing about this website is that from the money they make with it, the craigslist team donates about a few millions each year to charities.

To find free stuff, just go on their website, then on the BC, Vancouver link and look for the category ‘for sale’ and scroll down to ‘free’. The screenshot above shows you how it should look like 🙂

have fun roaming,

Annika

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Are you going to be in Vancouver for a while and are your bangs starting to get in the way? Finding a cheap place for both men and women to get your hair cut here can be quite difficult since there are a lot of options available, but they are usually way too expensive for just a simple hair cut.

One option that I have looked into several times now is, of course, Craigslist. People post advertisements on hair salons every day. There are always great deals available such as ‘two for the price of one’ or ‘bring a friend and the next haircut is for free’.. You need be very careful with scams when using this site though so make sure you are aware of that before you let someone come into contact with your hair with a pair of scissors!

FOR THE LADIES:

#1 –> Amanda – Hair stylist from home

Price list:

  • Blow-dry/style: $10-$15
  • Woman’s cut/style: $15-$20
  • Colour re-touch: $20-$25
  • Full Colour: $30-$40
  • Partial highlights: $30-$40
  • Full highlights: $40-$50

*all services include a blow-dry/style of your choice!*

For more information go to her advertisement on craigslist, give her a call or email her and set up an appointment if you are interested!

#2 –> Chura Hair Salon

If you want to go to a proper salon then another cheap option is in downtown; Chura Hair Salon.

To get your haircut it will only cost you CA$30 and or just CA$5 to get your bangs cut.

For more information visit the website.

FOR THE MEN:

Kings Men Hair Design

One of my colleagues went to this salon and was very pleased with the service there and the reviews found online are also great!

Price: CA$15 for regular cut

Vancouver, BC
