OTHER NIFTY STUFF
||Gift Certificates for Surveys
||Keynote (aka Vividence) is a survey company. You sign up, and they might send you an invitation to evaluate a website or two (which takes 30-45 minutes) for Amazon.ca gift certificates.|
In March of 2005 some people got a $12 Amazon.ca GC for evaluating a Canadian travel site.
(Vividence would do this with Amazon.com GC's a couple years ago, but it's been a while since anyone's received and invite for a US site)
||"Free" Amazon.ca Gift Certificates for HBC points
||If you've got spare HBC points (The Bay/Zellers/Home Outfitters) that you don't know what to do with, you can spend them on Amazon GCs or Chapters GCs.|
||Free MP3 player 1-year subscription
||This is a "deal" for those of you that really like audio books. If you sign up for a 1-year membership at $14.95US/month, they'll send you an Otis MP3 player for free (valued at about $100US). Click for all the details.|
||Up to 80% off Clearance Sale
||Save up to 85% off Books, Music & more (actually, some books are at 90%+ off).|
||iRewards: 5% off all books
||Chapters.Indigo's iRewards program gives you 5% off all books online (including books on sale).|
The membership costs $15/year. Juju did the math, and this is only a "deal" if you spend $300+ per year on books.
One other "benefit" to the membership: 10% off in-store books (the iREWARDS card is accepted at Chapters, Indigo, Coles, SmithBooks, The Book Company, and the World's Biggest Bookstore). But since in-store prices are rarely discounted (unlike online prices which are almost always discounted), the "10% off in-store" price will usually end up being more than the "5% off online" price, so this isn't much of a "benefit".
