Wayfair Customer Service Phone Number – Canada and US numbers

Wayfair is a mega popular online retailer selling all things home and garden. I recently shopped on Wayfair to help my Mom furnish her new smaller space, and it was a pretty seamless undertaking! But, like with any retailer, there will be times when you need to contact Wayfair by phone to get help with an order, or perhaps help with a product you’ve purchased. So we’ve got you covered!

Wayfair Customer Service phone number – Canada

I had to do a little digging to discover this one! So, the same main customer service line that works for the US does also work for Canadian customers. (I simply called it to make sure!) So, for Wayfair customer service in Canada, call 1-877-929-3247. Easy peasy!

Wayfair Customer service number – US customers (for Wayfair.com)

The best number to contact Wayfair’s customer service agents in the US is at 1-877-929-3247. We also found another customer service line available at 1-866-263-8325 in case you need an alternate number to try.

Wayfair Customer Service – Conclusion

There we have it – two different customer service numbers to directly get in touch with Wayfair regarding their products, or any problems you’re having with an order. Always make sure to have all relevant paperwork ready before you speak to customer service. This can include your order number, date of your order, product numbers, etc. All of this type of information will help the customer service rep help you quickly.

Save On Foods Flyer and Deals this Week – Mega More Rewards Points this week!

Hi all. Hope it’s a lovely sunny day where you are. Here in Calgary the weather has the nerve to bring some white stuff to us today – yes, I’m talking snow! But, if you know weather here in Calgary, you’ll know that snow can arrive nearly any month of the year.

This week we’re sharing some of Save On Food’s best deals this week. There is a mega coupon event that will get you lots of More Rewards – and More Rewards equals free stuff. We’re all about the free stuff! In fact, we like to say that free is our very favourite price.

So let’s go find some deals!

How to get More Rewards at Save On Foods

More Rewards is the Save On Foods reward programs. You can earn bonus points in a few different ways:

  • Earn points by purchasing specific products. For instance, sometimes a certain food or product will give you extra points. For instance, this week in the Save On flyer it shows that if you buy 2 Johnsonville sausages (dinner sausages in the 500 gram packs) you’ll earn 500 bonus points. These points will immediately show up on your receipt after you’ve paid for your groceries – whether you shop in store or at home and do curbside pickup. (Our favourite method of grocery shopping these days.)
  • Earn points with BONUS OFFERS – These are often a coupon that is shown in the physical or digital flyer for Save On Foods. You’ll usually need to download the digital version onto your Save On app/Save On More Rewards card. For instance: Spend $100 on groceries, get 2000 bonus points. Bonus tip: I learned this one the hard way! There is a PROMO CODE section on your Save on grocery app – you’ll find it when you’re about to checkout. You can use VIP codes that you find in the flyer in that section to make sure you earn your bonus points. (Some of the recent codes have been VIP18, VIP19, VIP20 and so on.)
  • Earn points by checking out MY OFFERS. These are customized offers available to you on your app. There can be big bonus offers – this week if I spend $115 on groceries I’ll get 4600 bonus points. That’s an incredible offer! But you’ll also have offers in your app that you need to load onto your card – for instance bonus offers on more grocery items.

Does Save On charge for curbside pickup?

Amazingly, no! Save On Foods does not currently have a fee for grocery pickup. We’ve been using Save On throughout the pandemic, and have been very impressed by this service. To have someone do your grocery shopping for you, and then simply place them all into your trunk when you arrive is incredible. But to not charge a cent extra? Extraordinary! We just love it.

Save On FREE GROCERIES Event this Week – Extra Free Groceries for your Points

If you’ve been saving up your points then this week is the time to spend them, you guys. Save $50 with 24,000 points, Save $100 with 36,000 points or save a whopping $200 with 48,000 points redeemed! Awesome deals this week.

Uber Customer Service – How to Contact them

Picture of Uber on phone to highlight Uber customer service.

Have you ever wondered how to contact Uber customer service? If you have, then you know how difficult it is to do so. I thought I would do some research to find out. This is what I have found below.

Uber Customer Service – It’s All About the App

By looking at their website, it is pretty obvious they want both their drivers and customers to use their App. Once you have their App downloaded on your phone then you can contact them. For example, if you are in Canada, Uber’s website lays out the procedure on how to contact them once you have the App as shown below:

“We’ve heard from driver-partners everywhere that you’d like the option of contacting us by phone whenever you need help or have a question about driving with Uber.

We want to be there for you—whether you’re on the road or off. So thanks to your feedback, we’re introducing 24/​7 phone support.

You can now speak directly with trained agents right over the phone. Whether you have a question about your account or want to report an incident, we’ll be ready to help—24/​7.

To speak with an agent, just go to the Help tab of your Uber Driver app and find the blue phone icon.’

How it works

-Open your Uber Driver App

-Tap Help

-Tap the Blue Phone Icon

-Tap Call Support

Uber Customer Service, An Emergency Number

On Elliot Advocacy’s website, they list an emergency number that both drivers and customers can use if they have an emergency or a safety related issue. This number is 800-353-8237 or 800-353-UBER.

They also list a main number which is 866-576-1039. Finally they also have their mailing address which is:

1455 Market St
Suite 400
San Francisco, CA 94103

Conclusion

The most obvious way to contact Uber is to have their App download and to contact them within that. It makes sense as this the Uber wants to be contacted. However, it is also nice to know that their are some other alternatives available to especially phone numbers because despite all our technological advances, most people still prefer to talk to someone over the phone.

Sake Kit Kat Bars – Direct from Japan to Canada – Japanese sake chocolate bars

I just wrote about a cool online retailer named Bokksu, which supplies some of the most popular Japanese Kit Kat flavours right to us here in Canada! One of the most popular gift Kit Kats from Japan is definitely their Sake Kit Kat bars.

So what are Sake Kit Kats? These premium Kit Kat bars for adults contain actual sake – that delicious Japanese rice drink that is made by fermenting rice. Sake is an important part of Japanese culture, and the serving of it is often ceremonial, where the sake is warmed gently before serving.

OR…you can have your Sake in Kit Kat form! Sake lovers will love that their favourite candy bar comes in this delicious flavour that does indeed contain real sake. Please keep in mind that these candy bars are for adults, and not for children, as they contain alcohol. We disovered three unique Sake flavors that we wanted to share with you.

  • Kit Kat Yogurt Sake bars are truly luxurious. This bar is flavoured with real yogurt sake, produced at Niizawa Brewery in Miyaga Prefecture. Nestle Japan came up with this new flavour to celebrate this beverage. $20.00 for 9 pieces. (Premium)
  • Japanese Kit Kat – Sakura Nihonshu Sake Kit Kat bars – Sakura sake is a traditional springtime drink in Japan! Why? Because it is light and delicious with a light floral overtone. The wafers in this bar are lightly salted to offset the sweetness – a perfect balance. Contains actual sake, and 0.07% alcohol content in each bar. $12.00 for 12 pieces.
  • Japanese Sake Kit Kats – “Japan Sake” – The first of Nestle Japan’s foray into premium sake Kit Kats, these bars are made with real sake from a renowned sake brewery in Toyama. Made with Masuizumi sake. Contains a full 0.4% alcohol content per bar, so eat responsibly please! $20.00 for 9 pieces (Premium)

Your love of Kit Kats, chocolate, and Japanese sake can all be satisfied with these delicious bars. Bokksu ships to Canada, so have fun shopping for and tasting these premium Sake bars. Enjoy!

10 Natural (and Cheap!) Ways to Treat and Prevent Heartburn and Acid Reflux

It happens to all of us occasionally – heartburn strikes! There is that terrible, burning sensation in your chest, and you may feel that acid burn right up in your throat. Not a lovely feeling. And if it happens at night, heartburn can even cause you insomnia. But, instead of always reaching for a prescription medication, are there natural heartburn remedies you can try instead? Yes! We’ve researched 10 tried and true ways to treat heartburn at home with common items you likely have around anyway.

These are helpful tips to try, but please always talk to a doctor about any new health issue you have. Heartburn could be a sign of something more serious.

1. Battle heartburn with baking soda

Baking soda is one amazing ingredient to have around the home! (We’ve also written about 10 Ways to Use Baking Soda to Clean your Home, so check that out for other ideas.)Once you’ve tackled your heartburn, you can go and clean the toilet with the same ingredient! Huh!) What we most often think of as a rising agent in baking, can also help treat heartburn naturally. Simply add about one teaspoon of baking soda to a small glass of water and stir well to dissolve. Then, drink up! Baking soda is naturally alkaline, so it can help to reduce acid. (But, if you’re watching sodium content then please be careful before trying this tip. Just one teaspoon of baking soda contains a whopping 1250 mg of sodium!! If you have high blood pressure, you also shouldn’t try this tip because of the very high sodium content in baking soda. But don’t worry, our other tips should be helpful for you!)

2. Drink a glass of milk

Again, milk is an alkaline – not acidic – substance, that can naturally help to combat either heartburn or acid reflux. Some people find a lot of relief by drinking a small glass of cold milk when their heartburn is acting up.

3. Prevent heartburn by reducing how much coffee you drink

Ahhh, sweet coffee! I love it too, but too much coffee – which is, again, very acidic – can create more problems for those of us with regular heartburn and/or acid reflux issues. Limit your coffee and overall caffeine intake to help prevent more problems with heartburn. And if you do have a cup of coffee, it helps to add milk to it rather than pure coffee alone. (Or milky coffees like lattes or cappuccinos will cause fewer problems than very strong coffee like an espresso.)

4. Limit how many citrus fruits (oranges, lemons) you eat

Delicious as they may be – and healthy too! – citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes, and mandarin oranges – are all packed full of acid. (This is why they’re damaging to teeth enamel too. Side tip: drink a glass of water after eating citrus fruits to limit the damage on your teeth.) Limit how many citrus fruits you eat, or how much citrus fruit juice you drink. Some people find that if they have a small glass of orange juice with food, they’re okay. (The food may help absorb the acid of the fruit juice.) But, some people are very sensitive to citrus fruits, and need to make them only an occasional treat.

5. Drink a little aloe juice

Now, aloe juice may not be an ingredient we all have in our pantries regularly. But, you may have an aloe plant somewhere in your home! Drinking a little natural aloe plant juice is a wonderful way to soothe away some of the discomfort of heartburn. You can also purchase actual aloe juice at health food stores. If you’re prone to heartburn, this might be a good item to keep on hand to treat it naturally when it strikes next. The juice is easy to drink, whereas the aloe gel that comes straight from the plant may not be quite as palatable.

6. Eat a banana

Bananas are naturally very alkaline, and they seem to soothe a lot of stomach problems and ailments! Eating a banana can help ease away the pain and discomfort of heartburn or acid reflux. And hey, they happen to be pretty yummy, too. Delicious snack plus heartburn treatment all in one little yellow package.

7. Eat a few plain crackers (soda crackers)

I remember my Mom suggesting this when I was a child, and it works! Eat a few soda crackers or other very plain crackers. It seems to help absorb some of the excess acid in your stomach and makes you feel a bit better.

8. Don’t eat so late at night

I know, I know! This sounds so judgey. But, if you cut back on late night snacking, you may find that you have fewer problems with heartburn in the middle of the night.

9. Raise your head up on a pillow (when trying to sleep)

Raising your head up a bit higher on an extra pillow will help prevent the additional acid from sneaking up your esophagus and causing you discomfort. This simple tip really works! But hopefully it won’t give you a neck ache the next morning!

10. Try a little Apple Cider Vinegar in water

This seems totally counterproductive, right? Why would you want to consume additional acid when you’re already suffering with too much acid in your stomach? And yet, many people find that their problems with heartburn are caused by too little acid being produced in their stomachs. For some people, a spoonful of natural apple cider vinegar (the good kind, with a ‘mother’ in the bottle) in a small glass of lukewarm or cool water can be very helpful. It can help balance out the healthy acid in your stomach.

We hope these tips have helped soothe your heartburn, and that you’ll be able to get on with your day, or even have a wonderful nighttime sleep. If you have other natural heartburn tips that are tried and true, please let us know about them!
