Here are some links to my favorite subscriptions and points cards. If you’re going to shop at certain places anyway, you might as well get free stuff for doing it!
Plum Rewards: You can receive points for all of your purchases at Chapters/Indigo (in store or online). I love visiting the sale department on their website as you can often find ridiculous deals on things like baby gifts and they have free shipping on orders over $25.
In hand with Air Miles, you can do surveys with Air Miles Opinion where you receive 2-20 Air Miles every time you complete a survey. Considering you usually have to spend $20 per Air Mile, I think it’s a great compensation!
Shoppers Optimum: Now that you can load bonus offers directly to your card or your phone, there is basically an offer every day where you can receive points totaling $5-20 off your future purchases.
Starbucks Card: Join their program, even if you go there at all! You get a free drink/food item for every 12 times you visit and you can get free refills on drip coffee while you’re in the store (once you have a Gold card). Plus you can top up your card easier and transfer balances in a blink.
