Are you starting to plan your Thanksgiving Dinner yet? I am. Once the invitations are sent it's too late to cancel and some of you might start to panic just thinking of what to serve your guests. Sounds familiar? This year my family has decided to celebrate on Saturday night. It's never easy to find a day that will be convenient for everyone. We will also host some of my daughter's friends because they don't have family around here. One of them is from Costa Rica and it will be her first Thanksgiving in Canada. How exciting is that?
Thanksgiving Dinner can be overwhelming so whenever it's possible try to involve some of your guests in helping for the big day. In my case my daughter has offered to help me plan the menu, go shopping and cook. How could I refuse this offer?
Speaking of grocery shopping, I like to think of myself as a savvy shopper. I try to buy items on sale whenever I can. You might be surprised to learn that I pay all of my expenses by credit card and you might be wondering why. The main reason is that I love rewards and getting points in exchange of grocery and other items. One credit card that I have been using for years is the President's Choice Financial Mastercard. Whenever I go grocery shopping, I swipe my card before I start to scan my items and it tells me my balance. Then when I pay I can use my points to get free groceries. Let me tell you that it's a good feeling to carry my bags to my car, full of grocery items for the week and that it was almost free.
Recently President's Choice launched a new card: the World Elite MasterCard. I could not wait to find out more details about this credit card because I like the look of the card a lot. But aside from looking good I love the fact that it does not have any annual fees. Yes, you read that right, no annual fees. You might think that's too good to be true. And on top of that I can accumulate PC points faster towards free groceries. Since I'm cooking and baking a lot every week, that's a big bonus for me.
And there are more ways to accumulate points faster with this card. But to find out more about this credit card you will have to join our #PCFWorldElite Twitter Chat on Thursday October 8th at 9 pm EST! We will not only talk about the benefits of this card but we will also share amazing tips to help you plan the perfect Thanksgiving day!
