Smartsaver Vancouver

Summer is here, which usually means spending more money… Therefore it might be a good idea to check out these ideas to save some money.

Canada 150

It might be a good idea to get a Discovery pass. Canada celebrates its 150th birthday together with you by giving out the Discovery passes. With these passes you can enter several national heritage sites and national parks in Canada such as Fort Langley and Kicking Horse Pass without paying any admissions. You can either order these passes online or visit one of Parks Canada’s partners. For example, you could go to Mountain Equipment Co-op in Vancouver to get your Discovery Pass.

If you are planning on doing a roadtrip to one of the national parks in Canada, then you only need to have one Discovery Pass per vehicle. Parks in BC include: Glacier National Park, Gulf Islands National Park, Gwaii Haanas National Park, Pacific Rim National Park, Mount Revelstoke National Park and Yoho National Park. There are also several other free events taking place in this year because of Canada’s 150th birthday, so you should definitely check it out!

When you rather go on an adventure in Vancouver, then you can try out Geocaching. When you’re playing Geocaching you are on a treasure hunt for hidden objects. These objects can be anywhere throughout the city, so it might be that there is one close to you right now! Geocaching gives you the opportunity to explore Vancouver in a different way and to discover new places, so it is a great option when you already saw all the normal tourist attractions in Vancouver.

Good luck on your new adventures! I hope this all will help you to save money, because you will definitely need it for the Rockies trip!

PR-team Adventures

Since finding some sweet deals for you can be quite hard in Vancouver, we are changing our blogposts a bit. We are still aiming to find great offers for you with the Smart Saver Vancouver, but we will only post the blogposts every other week from now on. To still keep you entertained, we are going to post some of our adventures in Canada. Those can be some fun things we experience in the office, excited trips we have made, or just random but great stories we want to share with you guys! We are starting off with some pranks we pull in the office.

So Becky, our crazy English girl in the office, went on a little trip to Toronto. Although we missed her since it was so quiet without her in the office, we always like to pull a prank when people come back in the office again. Since she is so excited with geo-cashing, a sort of treasure hunt on the streets worldwide, we decided to make a Becky-cashing.
After some good stalking on Facebook, we found great faces of our lovely Becky. We made them smaller, printed them and placed them all over the office. There was a Becky in the microwave, one on the milk and a few between all the pictures on our picture wall. Yeah, good luck with finding those Becky.

For a more warming welcome, we made her a little treasure map. As soon shbeckytreasurehunte set step into the office, the hunt began. It was so funny to see how excited she was! Although she had a treasure map, she was almost too excited to see all her pretty faces and she missed some really obvious ones. But in the end she had all of them; 28 Becky faces.

We still have not removed all the faces yet, so we can still have a laugh! So if you are stopping by the office and take a look at Becky’s desk, it might be possible to see some beautiful Becky faces.

I hope to see you all tonight at PuB NiGHT to even have a bigger laugh, some drinks and chatting of course 🙂

Smart Saver

It’s Sunday again and time for Smart Saver. This time we have a suggestion for a fun and cheap way of discovering places of Vancouver that you might not have thought of going. But no worries it’s totally safe. It’s called geocaching and is a form of treasure hunt where you have to track and find small containers situated around the city. In the small containers you might find a great treasure as well, who knows. Geocaching is a phenomenon that has gained in popularity, and a fun way to discover secret gems of Vancouver. It’s, easy and for free! You can use your mobile or a GPS for this activity. So what are you waiting for? Join the fun and explore Vancouver in a new and different way! Click here for more information on how to join this activity.

After an exciting treasure hunt you might find yourself a bit hungry but you don’t want to spend all of your savings on just one meal. No worries. Just walk to the Babylon Cafe at 1156 Denman Street. Here you’ll be able to get the most delicious shawarma wraps that will definitely satisfy your hunger. All you need to pay is 5-7$.
