Save on Christmas Shopping

I just bought my cousin return flight on Westjet for $450. She’s coming to visit us during Christmas. And so... the Christmas spending begins.

I don’t mind. I didn’t want her to spend the holidays all by herself. Just because I’m generous doesn’t mean that I don’t look for deals though. By being flexible with the dates (she’s in Uni so she gets off early) we saved about $200 dollars.

Then I used Great Canadian Rebates, which gives 1.33% cash back on WestJet purchases. Also, I paid for the ticket with my credit card which gives 1% cash back.

With so much Christmas shopping ahead of my all these rebates, cash backs, and deals will really help.

That's so thoughtful of you! Also, congrats on scoping out a deal! I agree that it's important to get all the additional freebies you can get (hence my obsession with fatwallet).
