So the HST has kicked in for a month – do you notice you’ve spent less on your food bills? I certainly have eaten out less these days. You might not think 7% is a whole lot, but when I take a look at the bill, the additional 7% taxes are actually quite noticeable. And it will just continue to add up.
Does that mean we should stop eating out? Not necessarily. Recently a number of websites start to surface and they each offer a deal every weekday. It’s not only restaurant deals, but also discounts on local attractions, wellness and fitness activities, grocery, etc. So far, most deals are restaurant deals and depending on what you’re looking for, some of them are pretty decent, sweet deals.
So check it out yourself. But remember, don’t go crazy on all these deals because they have expiration dates and fine prints. And you’re basically spending more money to snatch these coupons so really, you’re not saving money unless these are things/places that you’d do/go anyways.
OK, here you go – these are the sites that I’m aware of at this time:
Don’t forget – make purchases wisely. And enjoy the savings 🙂
