CUPE BC was very pleased to introduce the Endless Savings App at our convention in April. If you have a smartphone (unfortunately not Blackberry), you can download the app “EndlessSave” and enter the coupon code “cupebc”.
This app gives you discounts on a variety of products ranging from hotel rooms to paint to clothing.
It’s a very straightforward app so please give it a try, and ask me if you have any questions!
