【CANADA TRANSIT DO’S】

tickWatch Out For Exchange Rates

The Canadian currency is Canadian dollars. Most online stores will mark the price with CAD or the symbols $, C$, Can$. CAD 1.00 is roughly equivalent to PHP 36.68 (the exchange rate fluctuates, and it is recommended that you check before placing an order) When you use your card for online shopping, you should also be aware that banks usually charge a handling fee.

tickWatch Out For Time Difference

Want to snap up a flash offer that counts every second? Then pay attention to the time difference! Philippines is twelve hours ahead of the capital Ottawa. That is to say, nine o’clock in the morning in Canada time is nine o’clock in the evening the Philippine time on the same day. Remember to add one hour to daylight saving time! You should pay more attention to the limited-time offers in the online store, the actual end time!

tickWatch Out For the Canadian Discount Season

The major local discount time is the same as the United States, “Black Friday”, the promotion is almost the largest number of discounts throughout the year, in addition, Canada also has the same Boxing Day Sale as the United Kingdom (December 26 each year), which also has a lot of discounts, so in fact, from Black Friday By the end of the New Year holidays, it is the time when the discounts are the most deadly! There are also discounts for Easter in March and April every year!

There will also be various discount seasons at other time points, make sure to visit Buyandship’s IG, FB, & FB Group account , so that you don’t miss out on these big sale events in Canada.
