Smart Saver Vancouver

It is Wednesday, which means… saving money! Let’s take a look at more discounts for students, cause you will be amazed how many student discounts Vancouver has to offer! We will go through a few sections to show where you can find the discounts with your holy student card.

Retail

20170322_144124If you go to Banana Republic for some shopping, you will get a 15% discount on full-priced items. Club Monaco goes a little bit wilder since you get 20% off on full-priced and sale items. And guess what? H&M will give you a 15% discount on your entire in-store purchase! Ready for some new jeans? Go to Levi’s and you will get your new love with 15% off. Besides these stores you also get 10% off at TopShop, 20% at Roots and 15% at J.Crew and Kate Spade.

Restaurants

Every once in a while everybody craves fast-food and when you do, you will feel less guilty when you are able to get it cheaper. For example, if you go to Burger King you receive 10% off the entire meal by showing your student card. For a nice sandwich you can go to Subway and receive a 10% discount. Furthermore you will get the same discount at Dairy Queen, which is great for ice cream or more burgers!

Travel and transportation

Air Canada and StudentUniverse are combined as a team to provide the best student discounts on airfare. So if you have big plans on going to Hawaii when you have vacation here, check out their website for all the information! If you want to ship presents to your family through FedEx it can save you 20% to 30% by showing your student ID.

One more tip for everybody, so also the ones without a student card: have a visit at tourguys.ca  They offer free tours in Vancouver almost every day of the week for free starting in April. But don’t forget to give them a nice tip for their service.

Hope to see you all on PuB NiGHT at TAPshack!

Smart Saver Vancouver

It is a sunny Wednesday, which means we are going to save money again! In this Smart Saver I will give you examples of student discounts, like some of you I am still a student and you can have quite a few benefits from owning a student card.

spscardLike many cities in the world, Vancouver has a student discount card. Meet the SPC card, a card you can obtain if you are a student, which gives you 10 to 15% off on most of the popular brands like: Forever 21, Blenzz, Taco Bell, Levi’s, Bath & Body Works and PINK by Victoria Secret. You can get the card for only $10 by registering online at spccard.ca.  To see where you can save some money, they have a very handy app where you can see the best deals. The card is only usable during school periods so if you sign up now, you have awesome deals till July 31st.

Do you want to discover Vancouver on another level? Seair Seaplanes offers beautiful sightseeing flights to nice destinations. And even better; they have student discounts. For example, you can already do some sightseeing in the air from Vancouver to Vancouver Island for $74.58.

Rather not travel by plane? Greyhound offers transportation by bus and gives students discounts of 10 percent or more, this will depend on where you go though, but the offer is there!

But if you are looking for some fun in and around Vancouver, these student offers could also be quite helpful:

  • Vancouver aquarium for $27 instead of $36
  • Science World for $18.50 instead of $23.25
  • Vancouver Art Gallery for $18 instead of $24
  • Capilano Suspension Bridge for $32.95 instead of $39.95

Did you read all of this but you don’t have a student card? Don’t be sad, we come up with great deals every Wednesday! And if you are going to do groceries always check the weekly flyer for the best deals.urbanown

One last tip: do you like Urban Outfitters as much as I do? I discovered that if you create an account in their app you get 10% off on your first purchase! After that you will get other great deals in the app. A bonus for the students; at Urban Outfitters you get 10% off with the SPC card as well!

Hope to see you tonight at the Distillery!

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Ok, all the people know, Vancouver is an expensive city. But with our “Smart Saver” guide, you can take notes about our little tips to keep your budget safe.

Today, Special 10% discounts for students!

Firstly, do you like Turkish food? Yes? Congratulations! Culture Wrap & Juice, in 101 West Hastings St.! You can found here the typical wraps, feta cheese salads, kebabs and several types of juices, of course.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Secondly, Topshop&Topman! One of the best clothes shops for young people, in my opinion. The design is amazing; they often collaborate with the coolest people in the fashion world like Kate Moss or Mary Katrantzou… and the Granville St. shop is so big and so fantastic… But, have you seen the prices? Oh my god, if in Europe it’s expensive, you can imagine how is in Canada… But don’t worry, if you are completely in love with one of their items, you can use the student discount! You have to bring with you your student’s license or a copy of your enrollment paper.

 

 

You can check their websites for more ideas: Topshop.com and Topman.com

Kisses,

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver – Black Friday Sales!!

Happy Thanksgiving to our fellow neighbours down South! Like the Canadian Thanksgiving, the Americans also celebrate the season of Harvest by eating turkey and pumpkin pies with family and friends. The only difference is that it is in November instead of October!

This weekend also comes with two of the biggest shopping days in North America: Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Black Friday (November 23rd), as the title suggests, happens tomorrow where all the stores in the United States have these crazy, ridiculous sales and discounts off their merchandise.

Most sales starts right at midnight tonight so many keen shoppers are already lining up in front of stores right now! I suggest going down to Bellingham or Seattle this weekend to check out the deals or be spontaneous and join this West Trek Black Friday Midnight Shopping Tour that leaves tonight at 8pm!

While these two days of discounts have originated from the United States, many retailers in Vancouver and Canada are now participating to try and compete for customers. This is good news for us living in Vancouver as we don’t have to go all the way down to the States to save money (or I guess spend more money).

These Canadian websites, Red Flags Deals and Flyerland Vancouver, have a comprehensive list of the offers specific to us Canadians!

Cyber Monday (November 26th) is another day great day for us bargain shoppers, but the shopping is only done through online retailers! You don’t even have to leave your home to get great deals and discounts. This Cyber Monday website has all the best deals listed.

From my experience, the best sales are the stores that sell electronics such as Best Buy, Future Shop and even Apple have their rare, once a year sale! If you need a new laptop or iPad, this weekend will be your best bet.

I hope you get some great bargains this weekend! Happy Shopping!

Cheers,

Queenie
