French Connection is having a customer appreciation sale this Thursday, October 11th through Sunday, October 14th. The sale is both online and in stores and you can save 40% off all regular priced merchandise, as well as 10% off all sale priced merchandise.
For online purchases, use the promo code APPRECIATION1 at checkout. Shipping prices online are very steep and it’s not likely you’ll be able to combine the promo code for free shipping with the customer appreciation sale promo code, so shopping in store seems like the best way to get a deal.
The Fine Print
All purchases are considered final sale. This offer cannot be use din conjunction with any other promotional offer. Valid at French connection stores in Canada and online.

Cheap flights to Europe can be found fairly easily, you just need to know where to start looking. There are a great variety of airlines and fare finder services both online and not to take advantage of. Searching these sites and calling about various dates and promotions can lead to large savings.
What deals are available will depend largely on when you wish to depart and return, in other words when you plan to vacation. It will also depend on whether you wish to book a one-way ticket on either end (which can be considerably cheaper to do) or want to book a round-trip ticket.
A nice website to checkout to being your search is CheapFlights.ca. It contains a nice search that will list flights from over 300 partners, so you can always find the best price fairly easily. On the homepage, choose the “search by date” tab for the best results. Then use the list on the right and hit “go” next to the site you which to search deals for.
If you wish to go the route of searching individual air lines, one good place to start is Air Transat, who often have nice deals on trips to Europe.
Air Transat One-Way Flight Deals (taxes and fees incl.)

Return flights can be a bit of a tricky business on one-way flight deals to find a good price back home. However, try searching nearby cities and don’t always rely on major city airports.
Important Tips To Consider
When traveling on a budget consider neighboring airports for departure and arrival to save money
Many airlines offer small promotions that are not advertised, they reserve these deals for the people who ask
If you have flown recently, check with your airline for any promotions or rewards for return flyers
Travel during off seasons to find the best deals (airlines need to fill seats)
Stay away from some of the larger brand name airlines and look towards the low cost airlines
Pay close attention to hidden fees for baggage, snacks, in flight meals, etc. (look for all included prices).
Shoppers Drug Mart has a printable coupon up for three free samples of Clarins skin care products. Simply bring the printed coupon (filled out) to a participating Shoppers Drug Mart location for your samples.
What the samples are specifically is not detailed on the Shoppers website or on the coupon, however, I believe they will try and tailor the samples you have based on how you fill out the coupon.

About Shun Knives
Shun knives are made in Japan by Kershaw Cutlery and are some of the sharpest knives on the market. The acute 16 degree angle of Shun edges won’t bend or waver due to the hardness of the VG-10 steel core used in their construction. They are clad with 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel (16 on each side) and the blades resist rusting and maintain their razor edge for a considerable time. The handles are made of a resin and hardwood fusion known as PakkaWood. These knives are covered by a lifetime warranty, Shun knives are dishwasher-safe, but are best cared for if they are hand washed and dried.
Here’s an interesting offer if I’ve ever seen one, Amazon.ca has discounted the Totally Bamboo 15-inch by 10-inch pig cutting board to just $5 (74% off). From the limited reviews posted on Amazon.ca, it is being received well, with no negative reviews. The only thing to watch for would be that it suggests using mineral oil after each use on the board, which would be an additional cost to maintain the board.
Amazon.ca offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. To ship this alone will more than likely not be worth it, as the shipping will negate the deal, however, if you have other items to purchase as well it’s a solid deal.
Pig shaped bamboo cutting board; lightweight and attractive
Constructed of high quality Moso bamboo; ecologically green alternative to wood; strong, dense and versatile
Easy on knife blades
Dishwasher safe; recommended that mineral oil be used after each wash

After that point, if you don’t need the card, you can get rid of it with no worries, as there is no annual fee on the card.
Nintendo’s much anticipated Wii U console is set to hit stores this November. Pre-orders are available pretty much everywhere now.
Much like with the original Wii, there is an anticipation of a shortage of these consoles. The deluxe edition in particular seems to be selling out quite fast with the pre-orders. If you are looking for one of these for Christmas, an early pre-order is definitely recommended. There are limits on the amount you can pre-order, usually one or two console max per household. This varies by retailer. Make sure not to exceed this limit, or else your order will be cancelled.
The big difference between the basic console and the deluxe console (aside from price) is that the basic set includes only 8 GB of storage in comparison to 32 GB for the deluxe set. The price difference is not that much for the upgrade considering everything you get. The Wii U basic set is retailing for $299 and the Deluxe Set is retailing for $349.99.
The Wii U Basic set includes: White Wii U Console, one white Wii U GamePad controller, Wii U AC Adapter, Wii U GamePad AC Adapter and High Speed HDMI Cable, Sensor Bar.
The Wii U Deluxe set includes: Black Wii U Console, one Black Wii U GamePad controller, Wii U GamePad Stand, Wii U GamePad Cradle, Wii U Console Stand and Nintendo Land Game Disc.
