Great Canadian Rebates $25 GC Giveaway
Last week I had a post recommending the site Great Canadian Rebates who gives you cash back (and coupons) when shopping at popular online stores like Chapters (4%), Canadian Tire (3.33%) and Westjet (1.33%).
Within the post, I mentioned that Great Canadian Rebates would give away a $25 Chapters/Amazon GC to the first 100 who joined under MDJ. It's only been 2 weeks and we have already drawn the winner. Congrats Nicolas, enjoy the GC!
Because of the success thus far, Great Canadian Rebates has graciously offered to give away another $25 Chapters/Amazon GC to the next 100 members who join under MDJ. If you haven't already, check out my review of Great Canadian Rebates and save a few dollars on your online shopping.

The Financial Blogger writes about some RRSP strategies. What I learned from the article was that you can get deferred payment RRSP loans. This means that you can get an RRSP loan earlier in the year and pay it back when you get your tax return. I will post my thoughts on RRSP loans next week.
