I don't normally think of Canadian Tire when I'm shopping for toys, but I might start to change my tune. They just launched what they're calling the Biggest Toy Sale of the Year, and toys, games and sets are up to 40% off! Click here to shop the sale Honestly, they're not kidding when they say this sale is big. There are more than two hundred toys in stock, and even LEGO sets and PAW Patrol toys are included. And even though they say it's up to 40% off, there are some things for half-price, too! If you're shopping for Christmas presents, they even make things pretty easy for you, since you can shop by age and price range. So, for instance, if you head to the section for 5-7-year-olds (and pick from the sale items), you can find the Playmobil Police Truck with Speedboat for half-price! Remember, you can order most of these toys online, but you'll need to pick them up in-store. … [Read more...] about It’s the Biggest Toy Sale of the Year @ Canadian Tire!

The code is valid no matter where in Canada you live – and whether you pay 5% or 15% in taxes (or something in between). … [Read more...] about ASOS is Giving You 15% off Just for Being Canadian!
