    I just added everything up and so far I’ve “earned” over 500$ for Disney trips with my points!!

    I'm also heading up to that 500.00 mark. My goal for the PC points was 600.00 for the year. So I'm happy with where I am.

    I have not bought the disney GC with my earnings. Not sure of what our plans are yet. But if this summer continues on the same path it has been so far this year in Alberta...I'm going to need a warm weather ( Either Florida with the hubby and boys or warm beach holiday with just the hubby ) to get through the upcoming winter. Last winter was horrible LONG and COLD, well into April here. So for now, my " free groceries " get changed into cash and put into our holiday savings account. I'l be happy to see it build more and more!!!!

    i think it’s a great idea to just put the cash away and let it build! you have so much flexibility with how you’ll use your earnings. i’ve never taken a beach vacation, but the weather for the last year definitely makes it appealing.

    maybe i’ll need to start considering somewhere warm for the depths of winter too. although even in February, disney will be warmer than home...:idea:

    For those of us that shop at PC stores, I just discovered the Flashfood app. They take food close to their best before dates, and discount it. You choose and pick it up at a convenient location.

    I just got 1L chocolate milk, a small YOP, and a peameal bacon roast for $3.68. Signs directed me to customer service who said' Get it out of the fridge'. Sooooo easy!

    My dad sold groceries at a wholesaler when we were growing up, and we lived on foods past their 'best before' dates. When my kids were little, we'd often hit our local grocery store for 'Sunday meat shopping' when the good stuff was reduced. It then went into the freezer, if we didn't eat it that day. :D.

    I was skeptical, but I'm not now. Just another way to save for Disney (or in my case....new windows and front door!) Check out the app and see if it is something that would work for you! This is a referral link (You'd get $5 off) but PLEASE don't think that it is necessary! Just go to Google Plauy/ App Store, and search Flashfood https://flashfood.app.link/YuuC1zxy2Y

    That's great!!

    I just cashed in my refundable drink containers and had $25 worth, so another WDW gift card for the stash. My WDW gift card account is up to $850 CDN! That will hit $900 this weekend as I'm currently sitting at 42,000+ optimum points.

    We let our boys have that money. It's their job to take them outside to the bins we have. They sort them and get them ready to take into the recycle depot. Now that the oldest has his license and a car...I see them regularly ( when he is needing a few extra bucks ) go outside and sort then take them in. So far, the thieves who patrol neighbourhoods for these hidden treasures - lots of people are always posting on area fb pages that their empties have been stolen- they have not discovered that we use old garbage cans beside our shed to hold all our recycling. I'm sure one day...someone will come explore our backyard to help themselves to them...but until then...the boys can have that money.

    Haha! Do you live in Beaumont? Lol there have been so many stories of people stealing bottles here! I used them for the last couple of years to help subsidize our Disney fund as well. I wish every province did it!

    Grande Prairie lol.
    I would love to snap up the money for the vacation fund. But the boys do all the wok, so they can reap the rewards, but soon we will be down to one kiddo at hoe...then momma will be able to claim that money again. :blush:

    Collecting points for our trip in October (60 more sleeps - today was FP+ day!). So far, have gotten $100 in GC for our trip (plus $50 from my TD visa...). We're a little late to the game, but trying to build up our GC account quickly over the next 2 months!
    Just checked my PC account and I have 20x with $60 at Shoppers today.
    I've found Shoppers seems to be where I get the most points, though I may schedule a grocery pickup, because I had an email for 20,000 for my next order...

    JoeFresh.ca should have a back to school offer soon, I would think. They haven't had one since before the summer. That will be a great way to rack up points. And they post as soon as the order ships, which is really fast IMO.

    I have one right now that's spend $100 on kids clothes before the end of the month and get 20,000. So far, I'm at $26.82 (doesn't have to be all in the same order, and can be online or in store).
