The 2010 Olympic Games are at home in Canada and that’s cause for celebration! If going to the live events is not in your plans or budget, you can still be a team player and show your pride and support for our Canadian athletes. Here are a few winning ideas for enjoying the excitement of the games while taking home gold medal savings. Go Canada!

  • Host an Olympic party. Invite your fellow sports fans over to watch the events. All that cheering will make you hungry, so before the games begin, head over to Loblaw’s, Sobeys, No Frills, Save-On-Food, Price Smart Foods and Walmart for snacks and hors d’oeuvres. Check the grocery flyer category on Flyerland.ca and stock up when they’re on sale.
  • Cheer on Canada at a theatre near you. All across Canada select Cineplex locations will be broadcasting the Olympic Games. You can catch all the action with other proud Canadians—it’s the next best thing to being there!
  • Buy a big screen TV. Imagine how much more thrilling the games would be to watch on a big screen! Now is the perfect time to upgrade your home entertainment centre. You could even win your very own 42” Samsung Plasma TV courtesy of Bad Boy just by entering on Flyerland.ca.  Enter the contest today 
  • Sport your Olympic gear. Support team Canada by wearing your official 2010 Canadian Olympic team apparel. Purchase your gear at The Bay and if they’re sold out, try Zellers—they carry all the same spectacular stuff.  
  • Take a ski vacation. If seeing the beautiful scenery of Western Canada during the games motivates you to take a holiday, plan a ski getaway. Check out Flyerland.ca for daily deals from TravelAlerts on Flyerland.ca
  • Organize your own Olympic games. Watching the games can inspire any armchair athlete to join in the fun! Head outdoors and set up your own winter sporting events in your backyard such as an obstacle course, sled races, skiing and more—use your imagination! 
  • Create posters and cards. Show your Olympic spirit by making cheering signs to take to the games (if you’re lucky enough to be going) or to local events. You can also create motivational cards to send to your favourite athletes. Visit Flyerland.ca and check out the Michael’s flyer for all the supplies you’ll need.
