    Disney+ will stream Wakanda Forever as of today. I personally would love to see it but budgetwise, I'd like to get a month of Disney+ in April, when presumably all 8 or so episodes of The Mandalorian season 3 will be available. Bro has access to Paramount Plus for now but I will end it before March 31 so I don't pay for a subscription after nearly 3 months free. I'd like to think that some gift card deals will surface in early April (discounted preferably as I'm not using most points loyalty programs) to snag a Disney+ card deal.

    I did read that there is a cheaper Netflix Canada subscription of $5.99/month but it's contingent on accepting ads as part of the membership deal. Has anyone tried the ad version to save $ on Netflix Canada?

    Youtube-would love to see it ad free but it's fun watching French videos and then getting French ads appearing! It irks my Brother but neither one of us is willing to pay $17.99/mo for ad-free Youtube, main channel of interest at home, followed by Tubi/Roku Channel then Paramount Plus.

    Earned $$$ from work today.

    Received 3 of the $10 Danone/Sobeys gift cards from Dec promo.

    Saved $25 and change when I stocked up on my stash tea thatís on sale at save on foods.

    Saved $10 on my diesel fill up with AM plus got 3C off/L using my BCAA member.

    My partial Amazon order came today and I saved more than 50% on my shampoo from when I purchase it at a salon (isnít sold in stores and the company website is in USD plus they charge shipping).

    All in all I think it was a pretty productive day

    Good morning! It's almost Friday .
    We are expecting snow/wind /white outs.

    I made DS a lunch and then he said he needed to eat before school so I was nice and made him a Toasted bagel with egg and cheese to eat on the way to school. A bagel out of the freezer

    I made an amazon order yesterday and used one of my VISA prepaid GC's I received years ago from work. Happy to have used part of that and will use the balance this week at the grocery store so it is not lost/wasted.
    Ordered a travel crossbody sport bag. Will be great for the summer when hiking/exploring small towns etc. And now I have it for my next trip.

    I love to be able to SCOP but find some stores are changing their rules on the fly or just now adhering to the real rules?

    I always thought if an item was on sale (on the shelf or in the flyer) and it scanned in wrong it was a SCOP.

    Today FreshCo staff told me no that has not been the case for 3 years now even though I know I have in the past weeks done just that.
    They are saying that even if the date is not yet expired for the sale item they are only obligated to honour the sale price and not a SCOP and only SCOP if on a regularly priced item.
    I know they did otherwise recently but I suspect some words from above have come down to say screw the consumer even more.

    Oh well... at least they still price match. For now ....

    Goodboy -i feel i had this talk with freshco last year.I feel it may not be on sale price items anymore..

    I made $59.97 in total from scoop last yr and most was from regular prices increasing from walmart and no frills .Example bread in dec on shelf reg price was around 3.17 then the scanner rang up 3.49 so i got scoop at walmart,cashier said they were in process of changing tags on items .

    If this helps any ,i remember asking in shoppers once and she said no as it was on sale .

    I am waiting on stuff for work so making good use of my time to get other stuff done.

    Put a load of laundry in the washer and will hang it to dry. Moving stuff out of the spare room.
    I think I will putty fill the holes with putty today and sand it tomorrow.
    Found new curtains (my sister gave to me) so hung them up in the closet till needed.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. At least I know it is not just my store and I guess they are finally doing it correctly after years of doing it wrong - to my benefit! LOL

    Check your PCO offers if you have a No Frills nearby and check their flyer. I have a "for each SnapD crackers purchased get 3000 points" and the NF Flyer has 1000 points per purchase (total 4000 points per item) and they are on sale (at least in my flyer) for $3.99. I also have 2xbuy 2 save $2.50 coupons from Kelloggs (printable). Sadly my store did not have the SnapD but maybe you will have better luck!

    I did manage to get Tums at 4.77 each (PM WM) regular price 9.99 and had a 2.00 off coupon and a PCO offer. All taken into account each tums was $2.97 each down from $9.99 regular price.

    Also got Milk PM Metro for 3.49 regular 5.69 x 2 and Roma Tomatoes PM Longos for 1.79 vs 2.99/lb

    Finally there was a fiasco with the NF Hauler again today where there was no coupon for a free Mars/Snickers bar due to technical issue. I DMed them and they gave me gratis 1500 PC points.

    All in all a good day

    @GoodBoy , I find stores always find their own way to interrupt rules.

    Last year I had Rona Head Office telling me I could return an item but the store refused the return and was told the store can override Head Office.

    My No Frills produce has to be from the same country to be price matched but that seems to only be some No Frills.

    For those who shop at RCSS, I saw a post on IG that someone posted their RCSS is also doing the same for produce when price matching, that it has to be from the same country. They were told it is Loblaw's Policy.

    so odd @SassyAshley when I got that in my news feed this morning I too was surprised by it. I suppose the good thing is no jobs would be lost in Canada because the products are not made here.
