Smart Saver

It is Sunday, so it is also time for our weekly smart saver. This week we also found another great smart saver for you – how would be a music festival for free?

Make Music Vancouver is a music festival with over 100 musicians for free which is inspired by La Fête de la Musique from France. On June 25 the Water Street is shut down to traffic and is transformed into sidewalk stages and dance floors. You will see bands of any kinds of music, everything from rock and reggae to classical, jazz and punk.

Last year, 25,000 people turned out for the event, so it is supposed to be a really big party. So join the party on June 25, 5 pm – 10 pm at Water Street in Gastown for free! Find more information like the Line-Up and times on their homepage!

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Save 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, we are going to talk about cheap places to buy souvenirs.

In every trip there are three fundamental things to do:

–       Enjoy and try to visit the most places as possible

–       Take pictures to show to the people how amazing is your trip

–       Buy souvenirs for the family and friends

But sometimes souvenirs can be really expensive… and a lot of people usually wait to the last moment, inside the airport, to buy gifts. But come on, this is not very correct and you know that.

But firstly, which kind of souvenir are more commons?

–       A cap or a t-shirt with Canada written on it.

–       Something with a maple leaf

–       Something with a reindeer or a bear

–       Something with the Canadian Flag

And secondly, where can you go to buy them?

Canada Store: It’s a super cheap supermarket. There is some cool stuff that you can buy there! And after Canada Day they have amazing discounts, so take advantage of them!

$5.94 Reindeer and bear toys

$7 Plastic cups

$7 Water bottles

$0.94 Canadian cup and $2.44 Kids water bottle

It’s impossible to find in Downtown, but you can check the different locations here.

But if this store is pretty far away for you, there a lot of shops in Downtown. Water Street (Downtown) is a fantastic place to buy souvenirs!

Smiley’s, 355 Water Street

Cheers!

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Save 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, cheap Tuesdays!

Sometimes is really hard to find good deals in our dear Vancouver. Cheap and clean at the same time… is not an easy issue… for the common people. Not for us.

One trick is go to eat or drink something in the less busy days during the week. Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays are usually days without a lot of movement in the pubs and restaurants, so they try to attract customers with special deals. Today is the turn of Tuesdays!

 – The Backstage Lounge: $1.59 draft beer. This place is pretty far away, in Granville Island. But is a place that you have to know, I recommend to take a taxi boat. It’s around $5 a trip to Yaletown – Granville Island.

WHERE: 1585 Johnston Street MAP

 – The Moose: 25 c chicken wings! I’ve never been in that place, but I heard that the wings are amazing. If you decide to go, tell us about your experience!

WHERE: 724 Nelson St MAP

– The Metropole: $2 beer $2 tacos. Well, I have to say that I didn’t try the tacos but they look very good. And the beer… is cheap but a quite small (what did you expect?) and it is served in a plastic cup (sacrilege!).

WHERE: 320 Abbott Street MAP

I hope you enjoy my advice…

Clara.
