Hello to all of our long time friends and Welcome to our new community members!

With the community growing bigger everyday we get more and more questions about who we are, what we do and how to use our site. This post will give you all the tips, tricks and shortcuts you need to know about SaveaLoonie!

Who We Are is not a corporation, it is not a room full of people hunting down deals. We are a young couple living in Peterborough, ON with our 2 dogs, Jack & Ella. We work from our office at home to find you great savings every day.

In addition to being the Admins at SaveaLoonie, Terra is a Registered Massage Therapist who runs a small practice also from our home and Ryan designs & maintains a variety of other websites.

We spend our time hunting down and posting deals so you don’t have to. We understand your time is valuable and we want to make finding the savings as easy as possible.

You can read more in our About Us section.

What Is is a website dedicated to saving Canadians as much money as possible. We do this by posting coupons, samples, freebies, contests, giveaways, shopping deals and so much more everyday!

Every offer we post is open to Canadians. We expire old posts daily and share new ones as soon as they become available. We pride ourselves on being first to bring you new offers, especially time-sensitive coupons and freebies. Since we both work from home, we are usually only ever a few steps from the computer.

Our Mission Statement is “Make Every Loonie Count for Every Canadian with a fun, friendly, easy and interactive experience on”

How To Use

We have spent countless hours working to make easy for you to use. From precise categories to easy to find buttons, we’ve got it all! Browse below for tips on how to use some of the features found on SaveaLoonie.

These buttons will take you directly to the full category you select. From there you will be able to browse all of the available offers in that category. On our homepage, you can also find the main category links in website description.


You can also scroll down the main page of to see the latest offers posted in each of the main categories.

On the top of the page you will notice a menu bar. By hovering your mouse cursor over the category name, an additional drop down menu will appear. These more specific sub-categories will provide you with a more detailed way to search for content.

#3 Category Tags

We aren’t here to fool you or trick you. We want you to know everything we know about an offer. Many people want to know right away if a coupon is mail or print or both or if you can enter a contest daily or weekly. That is why we display easy to find and read category tags on every one of our posts.


#4 Easy To Locate Button Links

We don’t want to make finding freebies harder for you. Don’t spend precious seconds looking for a little underlined link to click. Our posts have a big, bright purple “Go To Offer” button for you to click!


To access the offers we post, you must first click this button. You will then be redirected to another website / Facebook Page for you to either claim your coupon, request your freebie or enter a giveaway. If there is no button for you to click, be sure to read the information in the post carefully. There will be some other information for you on how to access the offer.

# 5 Sharing is Caring

From here you can quickly share each offer on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, by email or on many other social networking sites. By sharing a post, you can help even more Canadians save money!

We always appreciate when others spread the savings!
