Scanner Accuracy (Canada)
Have you ever had a scanner price charge you higher than the price marked on a store shelf. If yes, then your first item (up to $10) may be free! See details of the policy with the following two links.
Loyalty Programs, or Points Programs, or Reward Programs are a great way to get rewarded for just doing your normal shopping. Be careful though. If the loyalty program does not match your shopping style, then you may be wasting your time and money.

Online Recommendations & Reputation
Trust is very important in any replationship. Trust is especially important when you decide to spent your hard earned money. I’m a strong believer that that Internet is a powerful tool for consumers, because it makes the marketplace more open and transparent. Unfortunately, the Internet also gives a voice to con artists, scams and companies that make their money manipulating real conversations about products and companies. This site cannot replace the need for a shopper to make good decisions about whom they trust, but I’ll try to list a few that I trust. Please let me know if you use other sites that should be listed.

Happiness is Shopping
