    Turning Back the Hands of Time to Spend More with the Ones You Love

    It’s such a busy time of year. Christmas parties, office parties, Christmas concerts, holiday shopping, Christmas baking, Christmas decorating, wrapping presents, traveling to see loved ones….and the list goes on and on and on.

    As a parent, the holidays are so different than when we were little. When we were younger the only thing we had to worry about was waking up Christmas morning and hoping that gift we had dreamt about for months on end was wrapped up perfectly under the tree just waiting for us to rip it open and play with it! But as we grew into adults and then parents, Christmas morning started to look a little different. We are the ones making sure the halls are decked, the trees are trimmed and the turkey is stuffed. It’s still exciting but in a completely different way. And let’s be honest, it can be exhausting because everything falls on YOU to get it done and we often find ourselves out of time and wishing we had more of it. 

    For me this year, I feel like I’m constantly chasing time. I need more time to shop, to bake, to work, to wrap, to clean, to do just about everything. 

    Are you feeling that holiday stress too? Looking at your calendar for the next couple of weeks and wondering where you will find TIME?! Wondering how you will get it all done?

    While it’s literally impossible to add more hours to our days, I’m here to tell you today that it IS possible to take back some time so you can spend it more with those you love most…doing the things you love the most. 

    I want to introduce you to Masterpass – a digital wallet that makes your online shopping safer, more convenient and ultimately faster…giving you back some TIME! Let me tell you how it works.

    Most of us have become online shopping savvy these days with so many merchants offering an amazing selection of goods at incredible prices (and many with next day delivery service too!) Did you know that 38% of Canadians prefer shopping online over shopping in a store and 76% of those Canadians believe that they can find a better deal online.*

    But part of the problem is always having to remember your credit card information when it comes to checking out. Even if you have an amazing memory, having to take the extra few minutes to enter and re-enter your payment information every time you shop can really start to add up…taking that precious time away from doing other things.

    With Masterpass, you are able to sign up (for free) and load in all your major credits cards (not exclusive to Mastercard), debit card and prepaid cards in one place. So when you are shopping and go to check out, all you have to do is select Masterpass as your digital wallet from participating merchants online or in app, enter your password and you are done! No more time spent entering your card and address info. It’s already all done for you! 

    While we never “turn back the hands of time” it IS possible this holiday season to reclaim some small moments so that you can in turn spend those moments doing the things you love most…like family movie night! With Masterpass we were able to order from Pizza Pizza in minutes, allowing us to have more time to snuggle in for a family movie night at home!

    What’s even more exciting is that Mastercard wants to help you save even more by offering a $250 pre-paid Mastercard so you can create some holiday magic with your friends and family this year! Find all the details below on how to enter! Contest is open to Canadians only and will close January 3rd, 2018. Winner will be notified by email. GOOD LUCK!

    So don’t stress about the lack of time for things this holiday season. Instead be armed with tools, like Masterpass that will save your time for you!

    Happy Shopping!

    Love & Blessings,
