Our Experience on Cross Country Checkup ~ Working together to help you cut costs

On Sunday, June 19, 20222 I had the chance to work with CBC on an inflation show on how to cut costs! I was live with Ian Hanomansing which was a very nice experience! I was very excited to be able to contribute and hopefully inspire a few others to start using coupons and cash back offers.

I must say I was a bit nervous however the staff at CBC was beyond wonderful. It started with Steve Howard, one of the producers who reached out on Coupon Nannie via email. It was several follow up emails, than I spoke to someone else who did a sound check and ensured my laptop was showing properly and everyone could hear me, than it was time for the live show! Ian made it very easily and smooth to be able to talk and give my input about apps and savings

If you missed the show you can check out the print story and the full show by visiting CBC Radio by visiting here

Checkup is Canada’s weekly town hall — a place for raw, honest perspectives on the most pressing issues of the week. For over 55 years, it’s where Canadians gather to listen to each other every Sunday afternoon. Call us: 1-888-416-8333.

I personally use all these money savings  apps. Some are newer than others and I am still testing a few new ones out but I LOVE FREE Cash, FREE Groceries & Free Gift Cards!!

You shop normally and either scan your products or take pictures of you receipt.  It all adds up and is money you save and back in your pocket.
