Wiseguys Mattress Experts talk about Mattress 'Sales'- Buyer Beware

Wiseguys Mattresses offer incredible value to their customers through a boutique-style shopping experience, customized service and unbeatable prices. They aim to have every customer leave the store confident in their decision to buy, and with a guaranteed good night's sleep on their mattress. Wiseguys are your Trusted Saskatoon Mattress Store


WHEN IS A SALE NOT REALLY A SALE?!


I'm sure you have seen the ads on TV, save 50% 60% 70% on mattresses this weekend (which is EVERY weekend). Well, are you REALLY saving this? It's tricky. What your saving is off their regular retail price, not the value of the mattress. So if some store is selling a mattress retailing at 50% off, then its $1500. but what if another store was selling the same mattress
at $999 every day? not really a sale is it. This is how the mattress game is played. But you say no two stores have the same mattress, so how can you compare? Well, that's part of the game too. 


Every chain store has its mattresses made for them, they only exist at
that chain store, so they can put any retail price on them they want because you cannot compare. Both can have memory foam for example, but are the same grade of foam, same poundage, same amount? It's pretty impossible to tell.


Buyers Beware

 
Two big chain stores were caught by the Competition Bureau of Canada (click the link for details)  for  'deceptive marketing practices' and  'grossly inflated regular prices'.

Why Wiseguys is different. 


We sell the real mattresses the companies make. You can find all of the mattresses that we sell, on other retailer's websites in Canada, if they have them advertised. Our high-end products like Serta Masterpiece, I comfort and Pure Energy, can be easily found, then you can compare. 





Do houses, cars, boats have 70% off sales? 


No? then why would you think mattresses would? Wiseguys have never had a "sale" in 13 years. The chain stores always say they will beat anybody's price. But if every chain has different mattresses, how can they do that, it's not the same mattress. 

Let's say Coca-cola made coke for every store in Canada but made a different version for the co-op, Giant Tiger, etc would they make it better than their regular coke just for those chains? Of course not, It would always be a lesser product. Wiseguys is the
Number 1 rated mattress store in Saskatoon for a reason. When you want great service, high-quality products and what to be treated properly, not hoping you're naive enough to fall for slick advertising, come see us at Wiseguys.  






Trusted Saskatoon Gym Fitness Focus tip on how to adjust your fitness goals for winter

At Fitness Focus, the goal is to offer a fitness centre with a welcoming, fun and safe environment that all ages can enjoy. They are a forerunner in the fitness industry in Saskatoon. With the ever-changing fitness demands of new and improved classes, training; and nutrition. They are your Fitness Focus is Your TRUSTED SASKATOON Gym!  

HOW TO ADJUST YOUR FITNESS GOALS FOR FALL AND WINTER


The change of seasons can throw off your fitness routine considerably. If you're used to running around your neighbourhood after work, you may be hesitant to keep that hobby up once the sun starts going down at 5 p.m. Adjusting your fitness routine can take some effort, but your goals shouldn't disintegrate just because the seasons start to change. 

INSPIRE YOURSELF 



Baggy clothing, unhealthy snacking and pushing back your bedtime will all conspire to land you on the couch during the winter months. Instead, look for small changes you can make to give your body a very different message. Wearing a fitted cardigan is a way to let yourself see the results that you've made after all your workouts. Going to bed earlier is the best way to wake up earlier feeling rested and refreshed so you can go for that morning run. Skipping the potato chips at your mid-afternoon break and substituting whole grains can give you the energy you need to stay on track. 


SUB IN WINTER ACTIVITIES 



Ice skating, skiing and sledding are all great ways to burn calories while enjoying the new season. And while you may need to travel a few Kilometers to find a rink or trail the effort will be well worth it. Not only will you be testing and improving your physical stamina, but you'll also be learning or improving upon a skill. If you come back from the activity and your shoes are soaked through, put crushed up newspapers inside them and set them in a warm (but not hot) place. Too much heat can wear down the materials of your expensive shoes. 

Another option to keep up with your fitness plans during winter is to start using a gym. Fitness Focus provides all the tools for any person to pursue growth and empowerment through personal challenge. Working out a gym offers you consistency so you're less likely to alter your routine no matter what season it is. At Fitness focus, we offer free 2 week trials and are proud to offer an exceptional childcare service.  Contact us today and see how we can help you maintain or achieve your fall-winter goals!

Mortgage Approval Process

Being READY, ORGANIZED and ENGAGED are the keys to a successful Mortgage Approval process.

  • We really care.  Although most of our process is over the phone and email, we are located locally and we are here for you every single step of the way.

Each applicant will have different information that has to be collected depending on their employment status, length of time at employer, where the downpayment funds are coming from and overall credit health.

We collect ALL of the needed supporting documentation along with a FULL application at the time of pre-approval request.

This ensures that the information we have on file will match what the lender will accept and support once you have an accepted offer in on a home you wish to purchase.


We are here to walk you through each step of ‘the process’.  We are not the bank. We are here to ensure that we structure the application and the mortgage approval request in a way that the lender will support and easily/quickly approve, all while setting up a mortgage that meets your future needs and financial goals.

We are here to create a success story for you.  The more organized we are in communicating solid information to you; the simpler the process for you. 

Why do we check your credit when you are only asking for a PRE-APPROVAL?

Your credit score is a huge key to the entire mortgage approval process.

The new mortgage rules outlined by the Federal Government in October 2016 made your credit score more important than ever.

Your score and the overall health of your credit will determine what lenders may consider your application, your total maximum purchase price and rate in some cases.

Your credit is important to us!

Our goal is to ensure your credit is healthy and stays healthy through the life of your mortgage (25 years), to ensure we can assist you with your renewal options in the future.

We are happy to provide tips and suggestions to build stronger credit throughout the pre-approval process.

Have you considered a wood-burning stove?  Wheatland Fireplace Kitchen and Bath has many options to warm you on those chilly evenings and cool rainy days and one of them is Jotul Stoves.  


Jotul Stoves.



A wood stove has been the traditional way to heat a home over the years and it often is the centrepiece of turning a house into a home. Even though we’re nestled deeply into the 21st century, this type of home heating still makes a lot of sense. Using wood to heat a home has many benefits, from an added beauty and ambiance in the home to independence from fluctuating utility bills.

 

Wheatland Fireplace, Kitchen, & Bath is proud to carry Jotul products. Jotul is one of the world’s oldest producers of stoves, inserts, and fireplaces. Building on a proud Norwegian heritage, they have combined fine craftsmanship with the art of coping with the cold for 160 years.

As a Jotul dealer, they carry the following products:

 

Jotul GF 305 & 
Jotul GF 160     


Jotul GF 500 DV IPI Portland      
Jotul F 602    


Jotul F 50 TL Rangeley  

Worldwide, the Jotul Group has earned a reputation for designing and producing award-winning, fine quality, cast iron stoves.

 

Based on the award-winning Jotul F 305 woodstove, the Jotul GF 305 DV IPI offers the same modern, cast iron styling in a freestanding direct vent gas stove. Smooth cast iron lines and sleek curves frame an extra-large fire view that only Jotul can produce.  Fueled by the new ceramic JotulBurner III, the Jotul GF 305 presents the perfect union of high efficiency and modern cast iron design.

 

 

Inspired by the immensely popular Jotul GF 370, the compact Jotul GF 160 DV IPI offers the same spectacular three-sided fire view, but with a truly unique tripod base. A modern design marvel, the Jotul GF 160 DV IPI strikes the perfect balance between form and functionality.

 

A descendant of our signature best-selling Jotul F 500 Oslo wood stove, the Jotul GF 500 DV IPI Portland offers the same whole house heating capabilities at the push of a button.  Fueled by the new ceramic JotulBurner™ III  the Jotul GF 500 presents the perfect union of high efficiency and timeless cast iron design.

 

 

 

Over 1,000,000 of these fine stoves have been produced and sold throughout the world – making the Jotul F 602 CB the best-selling woodstove ever produced. From the beautiful glass door to the sculpted charging lion on the side plates, this stove is truly a timeless work of art. In fact, you can own the best for the lowest price of any EPA approved cast iron woodstove!

 

Leading the way in clean combustion technology, Jotul now offers the convenience of top-loading in a non-catalytic wood stove.  Utilizing Jotul’s patent-pending rotating baffle, the Jotul F 50 TL Rangeley, can be easily loaded from the top with the turn of a handle.  For those looking for long overnight burn times, the Jotul F 50 TL Rangeley also has a convenient front-load option that allows for our legendary front-to-back “cigar burn”.
