Our Holiday Savings with PC Financial

One of the reasons why I love winter so much is because of the holidays. I love the feeling of winter slowly taking over and everything starting to light up around you. I enjoy going shopping during this time and of course, I love planning dinners with families and close loved ones. Amongst all the planning, the holidays sometimes don’t go as planned and I am left with bills to pay post-holiday season. This happened to me some years back and I was left paying bills for months.

As this is Mikael’s first holiday season, I wanted to prepare ahead of time and set up a budget for holidays. Luckily, I had my PC Financial World Elite Mastercard to get me started. What I love about the card is earning 3X the PC Optimum points and being able to redeem them for PC products. To top it off, the PC points can be redeemed at @loblawson, @Joefresh, and @shoppersdrugmartofficial to name a few.

One of our main traditions includes decorating the house for holidays and hosting dinners. My version of decor is keeping it to a minimal. I love adding a few decor pieces around my house and this year, I decided to focus on minimal statement pieces.

My other favorite part about our holidays is hosting dinners. We like to make sure our holiday dinners are delicious and are left memorable. With Mikael being in the picture this year, it has been overwhelming to plan and cook food. Luckily, PC Holiday Insiders Collection has us saved.

Thanks to PC’s amazing cooked and frozen dinners, it was so much easier to plan dinners

My holiday shopping and planning has become so much more organized thanks to PC Financial World Elite Mastercard. I have been able to get most of the products just by redeeming the PC Optimum points. I honestly didn’t even have to spend a lot from my own pocket. How are you all spending your holidays?
