Considering traveling to Canada?🍁

For the entire year of 2017, admission for all visitors to Canadian National Parks, National Historical Sites and National Marine Conservation Areas operated by Parks Canada will be FREE (over 200 places!). Lockage fees for Parks Canada’s historic canals and waterways will also be waived.


To take advantage of this amazing offer, you can either check back on the Parks Canada page closer to the end of the year for more details about how to access free admission in 2017. OR – you can purchase a Discovery Pass this year (provides admission to all Parks Canada locations) and it will be valid for two full years and also include the free admission in 2017.

carte-pass-120-enThe fee schedule for Discovery Passes is as follows (taxes are included – see here for more info):

  • Family/Group $136.40
  • Youth Individual (ages 6-16) $ 33.30
  • Adult Individual (ages 17-64) $ 67.70
  • Senior Individual (ages 65+) $ 57.90

Note that fees will still apply for experiences and services, including camping and other accommodations, Canadian Rockies Hot Springs, mooring, reservation fees, guided tours, firewood, plus hikes and programs not regularly included with admission.

(Thanks, Janice!)

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
