Everyone likes to save money. But not everyone knows about one of Ottawa's best-kept secrets when it comes to finding bargains: Algonquin College.

As part of their course work, students provide all sorts of services at cut-rate prices: A consultation and full massage for about a third of what you would pay elsewhere. Half-price facials. The list goes on and on. What's more, all of the services are supervised by faculty.

In the video above, Giacomo Panico, host of CBC Radio's In Town and Out, gives us a first-hand taste of what's on offer and the sort of big savings to be found.
