RedFlagDeals.com Warns of Sites Selling Fraudulent Wonderland Tickets

By Kate Musgrove

Recently, we received some complaints from users of a site called Red Group Deals. Some people are confused by the similarity of their name to ours and purchase items assuming the site is trustworthy. The site is attempting to sell Canada’s Wonderland tickets (among other things) at a discount and it turns out that the tickets are fake.

PSA: The TTC Won't Mail Metropasses This Month

PSA: The TTC Won't Mail Metropasses This Month

By Kate Musgrove

In response to the negotiations happening at Canada Post right now, Toronto Transit Commission has issued a statement that they will not be sending out the Metropass Discount Plan (MDP) transit passes for August. The MDP program, which has about 53,000 participants across the GTA, allows people to get a discount on the price of each month's Metropass by signing up for a 12-month pre-authorized payment plan, and typically, the MDP passes are mailed out to consumers before the start of each month. For August, Metropass Discount Plan users are instructed to buy a Metropass at a TTC station or authorized retail outlet. The TTC will not make August's pre-authorized debit charge but instead credit MDP users for the price difference between the discounted Metropass and what one regularly costs. That's $11.75 for each adult Metropass holder and $9.25 for each student or senior pass.
