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.




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!

Thank you! This event sounds like the bay gala. The proceeds even go to the same foundation

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Shoppers is having 20x points on all cosmetic and fragrance purchases from May 3-9!!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Has anyone returned any cosmetics/fragrance to The Bay? There was one time, an SA forgot to apply the coupon to my transaction, it took her 30 mins to do a new transaction with coupons applied ( She kept persuading me to use the coupon for the next purchase, not willing to fix her mistake). I returned to the bay probably only twice, both items are new and with receipt. All the SAs made me so uncomfortable with the return, I returned an item at Estee Lauder and four SAs checked the items before they proceeded with the return ( Is that necessary?)


However, the SA at another the Bay location told me if I'm not satisfied with my purchase, I can return it anytime even if it is used. 


Does anyone have experience with returning cosmetics to the Bay?

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I feel you.  Another perfect example of why I'm not a fan of that company.  They don't train their employees at all. When I say none, I mean zero training.  So, in all fairness, it's not really the sales associates fault.  I know that doesn't make you feel any better at the moment.  I feel the company took a serious turn for the worse ( referring to customer service and not to the actual physical state of some of their infrastructure although that too needs renovating) when they made an initial public offering on the stock exchange two years ago.  Anyways, I'm sorry to hear you had such a horrible experience.  If it's any consolation, be assured that you are not alone.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I do understand SAs make most of their money from commission, so they might not be happy when you return something. Their return policy seems very confusing to me :s

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I think its hit or miss kind of thing there,,,A short while ago I bought couple of products from the clinique counter and the SA was so nice and friendly that after purchase she wrote down her name and her job hours and told me she want to give me a free facial and make over and I can call and book an appointment with her when ever I want To get it done and there will not be any purchased associated with it and today I was at the Lancome counter at another Bay, where SA tried to sell me some thing different from what I was asking for but when I politely told her I want to buy what I am asking for...... oh man...she visibly took a serious offence and put my purchases on counter and was gone without a word.

Clinique sears bonus april 21.jpg

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

There is one in Scarborough town center, eaton center and another in Pickering town centre very close to Scarborough. ......  hope it helps.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

The Eaton Centre one is now closed!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Oh,,,haven't been there for a while,,,, Is it just random closure or something like zellers

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I think almost all are closing over the next little while.  The good (?) news is that the Eaton Centre one will be a Nordstrom in 2016 Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

And one  in Yorkdale as well! (Nordstrom). Calgary and Ottawa are getting theirs first, I hope some lovely ladies will share grand opening stories with us! Calgary gets theirs this fall.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

newspaper says Rideau Centre Nordstrom is supposed to open March 6, 2015!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Yup...and one at Sherway Gardens in 2017! Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

They're hard to come by! There's one by me in Burlington, and I think there's one in the Fairview Mall? 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Don't know if anyone is interested in this (it's a really small timeframe) BUT apparently, if you buy any nail polish (from Shoppers) on the 25th from 5-8pm you get another nailpolish free with this coupon!


It seems to have attached it funny.. but hopefully this works!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

They did this once before, and it is great. They won't count the coupon towards extra high end just an fyi. May try to get a pair of Nails Inc, I hope they have the flower ones in .

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Ah well. That's weird since there is no note of that on the coupon. :/

... wait never mind, I just read "qualifying nail polish product"

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Nope.. HmmmScreen Shot 2014-04-23 at 11.20.29 AM.png

Here we go!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Just received an email from Holt Renfrew:


Receive a promotional gift card worth 15% of your cosmetics spending April 24- April 27, gift card valid until May 28 (Long list of brands gift card can't be used towards including burberry and Canada goose).


Decent deal if you were planning on shopping twice anyway.


Getting very very tired of companies making expiring gift cards their promotions, I never buy these.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I posted this about a week ago Smiley Happy If you scroll down, you will probably see it.
