You take a small quiz (don't have to answer it correctly) and retweet/FB post it.

Went last Saturday here are the things I came across. Some might be a one day thing so I'm not sure if they will be there when you check.

- Free Voucher to redeem a can of Shiny Cider at local LCBO at the Shiny booth located in the Food Truck Frenzy/Craft Beer Fest.
- Free Tiny Toms at the food building. They set up a spin wheel with the best offer being Free Dozen Donuts. Second best is Buy 1 get 2.
- Free Paper Chicken Hat, Sticky Wallet case for Phone, Thunder Stick, Chicken Balloon, or Lip Gloss via Spin the Wheel. After which you can walk to the platform and get half a hot dog and 2 mozzarella stick for free. This is to promote Maple leafs Halal brand. Located at the back of the Arts and Craft Center near the Parkour Event Stage.
- Another maple leaf booth set up at the Farm building, same prizes as above, plus foam finger.
- Free Gum from Excel near the Enercare Building.
- Free paintball session card from Sgt Splatter near the Enercare Building.
- Free Caesar mix taste test at the Food Truck Frenzy Area.
- Free cash from Meridan at the entrance of Food Truck Frenzy Area. Throw bean Bags to reveal money which they will put into a newly created account which you may withdraw the money out from in 60 days. Best amount is $40, 30 and $20 totaling $90 dollars. I did not do this simply got the information by asking the attendant of the booth.

For cheapos, we were able to watch the CNE water show for free yesterday. The bridge at Ontario Place to Western most part of the property gives you some spectacular views of the action

For the free cash from Meridan, I got 100, I threw 3 bean bags, 30, 30, 10, plus spin on the machine, 30. So if you are lucky, 30, 30, 30, plus spin, spin could give you up to 1000(what they say), that's 1090. I really doubt there is 40 for the bean bag throw. I'm still thinking should I open another account for my little money.

Front entrance at Princess Gates there is a row of Mustang car viewings. If you go in they have sample taste test for MadJack ciders and another booth for PopShoppe alcohol. Madjack taste sample were reasonably full with 1 oz cups.

There was a Meridian matching game inside one of the buildings (different from the bean bag throw). Voucher I got is for $50 + $50 bonus = $100 total. From what I understand, to redeem you have to bring the voucher into a branch and also, "have made a deposit into a non-registered High Interest Savings Account in an amount not less than their Savings Starter Voucher amount."

Does this mean that if I open an account and deposit 5K, I'll get $100 from their current web offer, and then if I go into a branch to hand in the voucher, I'll get another bonus $100? Cuz if that's the case then that's a pretty nice and easy $200.
