Wax, wax and more wax. Clay.
Don't touch it with anything. Nothing. Bird pooped on your car? Use the correct product to take it off and then use something to take off that product.

Black is very difficult to maintain and it will show, fast. If you don't care, you don't care. Touchless FULL TIME. Don't touch it with a brush, ever.

I know I haven't washed ours in over 6 months. Heck, I think we've put <2k km on it in 6 months.
Fewer people are driving? My drive home takes me longer than it ever has, my estimate is TTC customers who have jumped into a car.
Downtown to Scarborough is my commute - tonight I practically ran to my car so I could get a jump on the commute.

OVERALL, yes fewer people are driving. GTA, I don't know.

Actually it can be a hot deal for those who gather a lot of points and need an outlet to redeem. The interesting thing is bonus redemption isn’t always the best time to use points. Remember SDM regular prices are often inflated so you need a bonus redemption to happen the same time as a sale to occur (for the things you want). Also if you shop a lot at SDM, you will find gaining points there is often easier than spending points there due to all the 20x point events (more likely to occur with sales on items you want).

Of course this does depend on what you buy and your buying habits. Personally I gain points pretty fast and most of my redemptions don’t even happen during bonus redemption. The only bonus redemptions I generally redeem on are Black Friday (Saturday) or boxing week. I do redeem quite often however at no frills and city market (west) at regular value.

I’m glad now I have the paint protection and rustproofing, got a decent deal on it. Usually don’t buy extended warranties, but after the last one died with a year of payments to go and only 63k on it, I kinda just want something where I can say this is the payment and it’s covered until the loan ends. Scratches and all of that crap, they can take care of that with the paint warranty Slightly Smiling Face. I’ll make sure to use a touch less wash for sure, but I will probably do it by hand.

Wife went for a car wash today at Walkley and Conroy.

5000 points for the most expensive wash. No tax was charged.

How long is the car wash code good for? Eg if I buy in January, would I be able to use them through April?

I think it’s nationwide. Heard it on the radio as well

It's possible to redeem the points and save the carwash for later? That would be awesome deal!

This is awesome if you can use it in AB - if anyone can confirm that would be great?

$5 for a automatic car wash is sweet!

The carwash I redeemed for on October 3rd, was valid until December, not sure of the exact date.
