Entertainment Membership App



 
My newest favourite app.  My family and I use this app quite often and it’s not like other apps.  This app is specifically for deals on travel, restaurants, and shopping which is absolutely great as I have not come across any other app that comes close in comparison.   


What I love most about this app is its ability to tell me what deals are in my area where ever I go.  For example, last night we decided to go out for dinner, I turned on the app and was able to see what restaurants had discounts available within my area.  Our choice was sushi and it happened that our local sushi restaurant had a 25% off the final bill.  DING DING DING we decided to go there.

Thanks to this app we saved $12 off our final bill.  I love the convenience of this app as there are no coupons to clip and carry around.  The app is always waiting on my iPhone and, or  iPad and is useful for so many locations.

Download this free app today and start saving money everywhere you go!

Knitting 4 the Homeless x2

Its that time of year again when I am starting to gather up all the personal items that I have been collecting all year and start making care packages for the homeless.

We are hoping to go at the end of November this year and our goal is to prepare at least 15 care packages filled with my handmade scarves, soap, hats, socks, toilet paper etc.  As this is our second year going out I feel we are a little more prepared as to what areas we planning on going to.  Last year we handed out our packages in the evening but this year we're thinking during the day as it will be much safer walking the streets of Toronto on our own.

If you are a new fan to my site, please know that I am not affiliated with any other group.  By going out and giving back on my own, I know that everything I have made and have raised will go completely to the homeless.  There is no middleman and we are not paid.  Everything we collect is for the homeless.

If you want to donate, please send me at canadiancouponchick@gmail.com.
As soon as my husband and I pick a date, I will let you all know, since we will be tweeting live that day.

Summer Wardrobe

This is the best time of year to stock up on clothing for next summer.  I headed over to #oldnavy this weekend and picked up a couple of tops and shorts already for next summer and possibly another holiday next March.

There were a number of pieces that were under the five dollar mark which is an amazing deal.  Also, my receipt had a 15% off coupon if the customer satisfaction survey is completed.  I'll be completing that this week and visiting the Old Navy near my office to check out their selection as well.

Hope your all having an amazing week!

Fallsview Indoor Water Park





My family and I recently had the opportunity to visit Niagara Falls Fallsview Indoor Water Park.  After hearing many positive reviews from friends and family that had visited, we decided that it was our turn to go on a mini vacation. 













We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel that faced the Falls.  It was such a beautiful room.  My husband especially like that the balcony doors actually opened and that he was able to get the ultimate #selfie with the view of Niagara Falls in the same picture.  Most hotels do not provide doors or windows that open, but The Sheridan Hotel allows guests to access the beautiful Falls with a balcony.We were able to enjoy the fresh air and many delicious scents from the Niagara Falls tourist strip.   Our deluxe room had comfortable fluffy beds, a cozy fireplace and a gorgeous view of Niagara Falls.   The room was pristine, and truly felt like we were living in luxury.

Once we settled into our room we headed straight to the waterpark.  Fallsview Indoor WaterPark is a 3 acres of water fun for the entire family! It is a short walk across from Niagara Falls.  The Waterpark has many different attractions for all, including 16 waterslides, a wave pool, a large Beach House play area (where we spent most of our time) and a Tiny Tots Splash Park which is suitable for young children.  

Fallsview Water Park also encompasses an outdoor/roof top pool and sundeck, two large hot tubs and the Plant Hollywood Beach Club restaurant that has many different options for snacks and meals! You never have to leave the fun and excitement of the waterpark.   One of the great things about Fallsview WaterPark is that families can stay at The Sheraton Hotel or at the Crowne Plaza.  Both hotels are connected by a walkway to the Waterpark, which is really convenient for families that plan on playing and staying. 

We had the opportunity of trying out all the attractions at Fallsview Waterpark.  However, my three year old son adored the Beach House play area and we spent most of our time there.  Upon arriving, I was a little nervous on how he would do on the water slides.  I was relieved to find out that all the waterslides he was able to go on, I was able to go on as well.  This was huge relief for our family.  Having a nonstop 3 year old on the waterslides was exhausting for us, but we enjoyed every minute of it.



We ate at Planet Hollywood Beach club for lunch, which had many different items to pick from including many healthy options.   While enjoying our meal, our son played at the Jungle Beach playground which is located on the upper level, overlooking the waterpark.   My son was able to digest his meal and enjoy some land attractions!





My husband and I took shifts relaxing at the Horseshoe Hot Springs hot tubs, which is a perfect addition to taking a break from the little ones and having a few minutes to yourselves while still being able to watch what your children are doing from the gated area. 

Over the past few years my husband and I have been to many playgrounds, splash pads and pools with our son, but nothing compares to the cleanliness and comfortable water temperatures at Fallsview Waterpark.  Employees were constantly cleaning the playground, dining areas, and lawn chair areas.   I was extremely impressed regarding the vigilance of cleanliness at the waterpark. 

As most of you know, I love a great deal and greatly appreciated that there was no rental fees for lifejackets, towels and that baby swim diapers were being offered without a charge.  Next time, our swim bags will definitely be much lighter. The change rooms where very large and had many private shower areas. Best of all, there was a swimsuit dryer!



Once we left the waterpark, we quickly changed and headed over to the Rainforest Café, which is also conveniently located on the lower level of the Sheraton Hotel.  We had the most amazing meals and our waitress, Meghan, made our experience both memorable and enjoyable.  The atmosphere and realistic looking, the animals were exciting and it made our getaway even more special! Our son talked about Jungle and Rainforest for days! Our meals were delicious, hot and served in a timely manner, even though the restaurant was packed with customers, the customer service was outstanding.  



Overall our family had an amazing mini vacation at The Fallsview Waterpark, The Sheraton Hotel and dinner at the Rainforest café.  We are thoroughly looking forward to repeating this trip sometime soon!
