Staycation vs. Vacation

To stay or to go, that is the question.

Whether it’s for March Break, Reading Week, summer or winter breaks, long weekends, or any other time of the year, the decision to stay or go away can be a difficult one.

After all, we live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and there are so many great places to visit no matter the region. Then again, the world is an incredible place and there are so many places to see and things to do…

The Staycation Option

Don’t cook! Order HelloFresh so you can have fancy home-cooked meals ready in a pinch. It’ll feel like you’re at a five-star restaurant, or even enjoying international cuisine without the hefty price of an airline ticket.

Streaming devices like Roku and Amazon Fire offer multi-media streaming with thousands of hours of content at your fingertips. Netflix and chill? Movie marathon? Binge whatever, whenever. Just don’t forget the snacks.

Ticketmaster and StubHub have tickets to events across the country, so whether you’re a sports fan, a theatre junkie, or love live concerts, get your fix during your break.

And if you’re planning on taking day trips, stock up on gas gift cards to help offset those crazy petrol prices.

The Vacation Option

Whatever your travel plans, book through one of our travel partners to make sure you get Cash Back on top of the best travel deals. Airlines, hotels, car rentals, and online travel agencies – we’ve got a great selection to ensure you find the perfect trip.

Next, you’ll need the perfect luggage. Whether you’re checking it or carrying on, Bentley’s stocks everything you’ll need, including RFID-protected wallets.

Don’t forget, if you’re going to a sunny destination you’ll need to protect your skin. Shopper’s Drug Mart and Sephora offer all the best products, many in travel-friendly sizes.

Protect your eyes and capture your memories with SnapChat specs, waterproof speakers so you can listen to your favourite tunes by the water, or grab a pair of wireless headphones – all from Amazon or Best Buy. If reading is more your speed, you’re going to want to pick up the latest Kobo so you can read from wherever you are. 

As you can see, whatever you choose to do during your much-earned time off, make sure you visit us so you can get Cash Back on all your plans.
