Offering a rich selection of products that range from automotive parts to home items and pet supplies, Canadian Tire is the go-to store for many shoppers interested in quality products at affordable prices. While the meaning of ‘affordable’ may differ from one shopper to another, there are a few shopping tips to help you save more when buying at Canadian Tire and thus get closer to what ‘affordable’ means in your case.
Thanks to the many product categories available at this retailer, you can cater to your different needs in one shopping session, while thanks to the following shopping hacks, you can make sure that the products you want to purchase will cost you less.
While some retailers offer discounts only during sales events, Canadian Tire has a different approach, although similar to the one embraced by many other retailers, which includes weekly deals. Therefore, you don’t have to wait for big sales events to save when stocking up on the products available at this store. Keeping an eye on the weekly flyer from Canadian Tire is thus part of the shopping habits that can help you get more for less.
What’s great about the weekly offers at this retailer is that they typically include price cuts on products from different categories so that every shopper can find something of interest at a lower price.
Some examples of past weekly deals include price drops up to 75% on kitchen products, up to 50% off floor care and vacuums, or up to 25% off tires. So, whether you need new tires for your car, sporting goods, or various items for your home, checking their weekly flyer before embarking on a shopping session is the thing to do.
Besides the weekly deals offered at Canadian Tire, the retailer also releases hot sale deals regularly. So, next time you need something from this store, visiting the hot sale section is another step to take as you can thus save on a variety of products.
For example, past hot deals featured discounts of up to 30% on select ice skates for women, winter tires from $104.99 each, price cuts of 35% on type A storage bins, and even 80% off Mastercraft screwdriver sets, which were thus available for only $24.99 per set (initial price was $129.99 per set).
What’s great is that such deals include price drops on different items, and you are thus likely to find something that your wish list includes at a lower price. Plus, you can check if a product is in stock at the Canadian Tire stores in your area and thus purchase it directly in-store, or you can simply order it online in case it is not available at your store at that moment.

To help you save even further, Canadian Tire also offers the price-match option.

If the store associate determines that that item qualifies, they will price match it to the lower offer.
Furthermore, you can benefit from this option even if you’ve already purchased a product from Canadian Store in the last 30 days. If you thus know of a lower price currently available at a local competitor for an identical product, repeat the steps mentioned above.
