The Canadian Peeps!

So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers.  A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc.

 

I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board.

 

I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow.

 

ETA:

 

Where to shop!

 

So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found.  I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me Smiley Wink

 

For those who don't know...

 

Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store.

 

The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come.  They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that!  Hello MAC!

 

Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST!  Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day!

 

Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you.  Some things you can get shipped from the site.

 

Apparently Saks is coming.  I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in.

 

If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you.

 

Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.

 

 

 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I ordered from FTB in October or November when they had 25% off and they do have great service. I ordered at like 10pm and they shipped my order the next morning. 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Anyone here placed an order in 2014?  If so, any problems with the taxes still?

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I placed one a few days ago, and the taxes were correct!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks ladies.  I'm just curious to know if the problem has been fixed... I'm assuming it hasn't.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

yeah I don't think they have fixed the taxes yet because my taxes changed a few times before I finally checked out.

 

I went to the check out screen and the taxes were off 2 cents and then when I went to the next page to type in my cc info the taxes increased again. I couldn't figure out why since I didn't add anything and just went to the next page. But after that, I went back to my cart to try checking out again to see if the taxes would go back. And this time, I decided to add a point perk. The taxes went back to the original one that was 2 cents off..

 

I'm not sure why it did that. it was really weird.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

My last order had incorrect taxes - off by 13 cents (in my favour).

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I've ordered twice in January. The first time I wasn't charged any taxes at all, which was strange. And I just ordered again today, and my taxes was 2 cents off, so I won't  bother contacting CS for that.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I've placed four orders and all of the taxes have been spot on expect one that was off by $.05. 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks for the info Smiley Wink

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

The points are still off though...

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

The points are always off unfortunately Smiley Sad  We were told that the tax issue would be fixed by January 2014.  If it still happens it means that they haven't done **bleep** about it.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Just a quick update re: the Beauty Boutique in Shoppers Drugmart ... I went in the other day to exchange my Naked 3 palette (2 of the shadows fell out when I turned it over to pop out the brush. It wouldn't have been a big deal if they hadn't shattered) and ended up spending $190 in Rewards Points plus a bit extra. Excellent customer service. No problems at all with the exchange. They didn't even need my receipt. And she piled me up with samples (4 piece Lancome set valued at $96 even though I hadn't purchased any Lancome that day, Prada makeup bag with 4 perfume samples). So nice to be given extras without asking and knowing that you can redeem your reward points for items you really want. The last time I shopped at Sephora, I received a tiny little store made sample of the Boscia oil after spending over $200. 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Yeah I love shoppers for that but unfortunately they don't carry UD in any of the SDM in my city.  Smiley Sad

 

Glad you had a great experience! Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Sounds great! I literally have never got a single sample from beauty boutique no matter how much money I spent :'( 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Really?  Wow!  The girls there are probably clueless.  I always got some great samples and at times makeup bags.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I guess I never really asked for samples either Smiley Sad My experience at beauty boutique is quite average. I always feel like they are pushing me to buy stuff and always recommend the more expensive products Smiley Sad

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I've had good luck at the Beauty Boutique at my SDM too,  last time I bought about 200$ worth of stuff and she gave me a cloth makeup pouch that contained 3 big deluxe Biotherm samples,  I really like the products too!

 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Does anyone know if there's any awesome events or deals happening in Vancouver? I always try looking but I suck at finding anything Smiley Sad 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Hey, I am in Vancouver. The Shoppers in Yaletown (on Homer and Nelson) is having a Dior event today, with Dior artists there as well as 20% off on all Dior stuff. The beauty section in that Shoppers is awesome and they call me when my fave brands come in with new stuff, or for sales or events like that.

 

Holt Renfrew has a deal on right now where if you buy $75 of stuff you get a beauty bag with deluxe samples. Their bags are always really nice and the samples are also always really nice.

 

 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

what deluxe samples do they offer at Holt Renfrew? I don't really shop at Holt Renfrew anymore because all their cosmetics purchases are non-refundableSmiley Sad

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I bought a gorgeous $35 cosmetics bag with a little bag in it and it came with a bunch of samples. Super nice quality for the cost, and it included a $10 off voucher. Samples were:
