    Reset those tickers, synch up your apps and let's get this "other money" party started!!! For many SCers this thread is a long time favorite of sharing just how much richer we are if we use all those resources available to us in true smart canuck fashion! It's truly amazing how fast those pennies and dimes add up to huge savings by the end of the year!

    If you're new to this thread, here's the 411: "other money" refers to the various rebates, survey sites, cash-back programs, loyalty, programs, call-in coupons and more that SCers have used to earn $ that lowers their out of pocket expenses.

    The next post will include a short list of the popular ways people are earning "other money", and there are links to the old annual threads for reference.

    The best way to learn and earn: stay active on SC! Read up on all the deals and brags...it takes a little work to go through threads, flyers, match up coupons and remember to upload your receipt, but the updates from your fellow SCers is proof that it really does pay off in the long run!

    Happy 2016! Cheers to another fabulous year of savings!

    posts 2-4 show a list of some programs that help you gain "other money. Some info has changed since last year and there may be others not yet listed; when I get a chance, I'll bring forward the most popular ones and invite others to add their favourites!

    Count me in!
    My #1 program is PC Pts. Using my PC Elite MC at Loblaws and SDM earns me 30 pts per $ so I try and price match all my shopping at RCSS to build it as much as I can. My M/C pts sit at $441.00 right now and my extra PC Plus card at $10. (I load offers on both and use whichever benefits me and always pay with the MC.)

    #2 SDM- I use to shop there all the time then stopped completely. I started back up last year and accumulated enough points last year for 2 highest redemptions and 1 $30 redemption. I redeemed 95000 in December so am sitting at 119,524 pts today.

    These are the 2 programs that I will work at this year and try and work to my benefit.

    ^^2,900 points wimbly. Not sure if they are still listed there today but items come and go pretty briskly on there around xmas time. If it isn't on the site now keep checking back as they resupply items every now and again.

    I find pc points most beneficial for myself. I want to apply for the pc mastercard as I keep missing large amounts of points from my shops
    Plus I want to cash out for gift cards
