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!

Also a head's up, (if you're in western Canada, I believe), London Drugs has Beauty Events, I just signed up for my local Christmas Gala. The ticket is $10 for a half hour makeover, and can be redeemed towards cosmetics at the event. Plus you get a swag bag and get entered toward door prizes.

 

I went to one in August (for Lise Watier) and got a great swag bag (with samples and some full size drugstore items), and I also won a door prize which included full sizes of high end makeup and perfume. A few of the items I can think of were a Gucci perfume, Juicy Couture perfume, Clarins mascara, Lise Watier eyeshadow, eyeliner and lipgloss. I ended up sharing lots of these with friends and added some to the Canadian travel box. But it's definitely worth it if you go!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Oh that sounds really fun. Thanks for sharing!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Today I went to The Bay's annual beauty event. I don't know if it is today all of Canada, so I thought I'd just let you all know.

 

It cost 10$, 2 went to charity and 8 went to a purchase. It was PACKED. There was mini glasses of wine, cocktails, h'or dourves, ice cream, some free samples, free manicures, free henna +threading, lots of draws,  samples with purchases and so on. It was fun, there was a dj and everyone was dressed up nice. I only picked up two things from MAC, but I got 8$ off each (my mom surprised me with a ticket and gave me her coupon!). I'd go again I think!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I'm going later this week so I'll let you guys know how it is Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I think there is a bonus redemption this Friday at SDM - they are calling it mega, but it's lamer than previous year mega redemptions.  95K points for $210, 50K points for $105, and 38K points for $70.  I'm not sure if they will do another (bigger redemption in Dec) but they usually do.

 

 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Oh cool!  Did you get an e-mail?  I bought a stereo/alarm clock one year with my points.  Still works great! Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Someone had posted on the smart canucks forum - if you haven't checked it out, you should!  They list all the Canadian flyers, sales, promos, etc.  there is a really great separate SDM forum where people strategize on how to get the most points and when to redeem.  it's quite an excellent program if you "optimize" sorry, couldn't resist the pun Smiley Wink

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks!  I'll check it out!  I went from buying a **bleep** load of stuff from SDM to barely buying any... They stopped carry UD Smiley Sad  But some of them have Stila and Anna Sui.  And I used to use only Biotherm products and now I buy my skin care from saffronrouge.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I worked there part time all throughout university and I swear my entire paycheck ended up going right back to them!!!  Now I mostly buy French pharmacy products from them, like bioderma, avene, neostrata.... i generally stick to Sephora for my makeup needs.  I used to use only Biotherm as well - great line.  Love their anti-drying milk.  I stopped buying it once I lost my employee discount though.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Oh ok cool cool.  See I switched when I did some research on products and ingredients.  I try to be careful for make-up as well but I'm a die hard MAC girl and that will never change. lol 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Super excited!  Tomorrow will be my first of 2 gala's at The Bay.  I'm doing two of them because one Bay has NARS and the other one doesn't.  I booked the first once which is Saturday because it sounded fun and it's the same day as my birthday Smiley Wink  Hope I get to win something lol.  Then I booked the other one which is tomorrow because that Bay has NARS and the one where I'm going to on Sat doesn't...  I'm hoping lost of goodies and gwp. Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Have fun and do let us know how they go (and early happy b-day!)

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

SDM - Just received that e-mail!

 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

just got that e-mail too, but I don't own a printer Smiley Sad

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Smart phone?

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I didn't even know about this !!!!! darrrrn

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Hey Cdn ladies check your orders as my last 5 of 6 orders had too high a tax rate (veronika brought my attention to it). Sephora isn't acknowledging there's a problem either. Apparently the problem started in August when they changed shipping with Borderfree

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Sorry I was wrong about the redemption at SDM being this Friday - it is the weekend of the 30th!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thought so Smiley Happy An SA at SDM told me that it was happening in a couple weeks. Guess she was right Smiley Happy 

Yay! Free stuff on a non-pay week Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

SALE - Chapters dot ca

 

Tokyomilk, Butter London, Cake and EOS lip packs! Most of the Tokyomilk is OOS though.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Just posted on Bite's FB page:

 

Visit the BITE Lip Lab at Sephora Sherway Gardens tomorrow & Saturday from 11-7pm and create your own custom lip colour! Perfect for yourself or as a gift for the lipstick lover in your life.

 

 

I must say they do have some of the worst customer service I have EVER come across.  I might stop buying from them because of it.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I love Bite lip products, too bad Sherway Gardens is really out of the way for me. 

I'm really sorry to hear that, do you mind elaborating on your CS experience with Bite? I'm a little curious.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

One Gala done one to go Smiley Wink

 

So it wasn't super busy but I did go in the middle of the day during the week.  I got my make-up done by MAC  and to my surprise I had to buy 50$ worth of products for this.  I was told that the make-up was complementary when you buy the ticket so not too impressed with that.  She did a really nice job though.  They had music and people going around with food. Did enter a draw for something lol.  Super disappointed with NARS.  You had to buy 150$ to get a gift so I passed.  Got a body cream from a company I wasn't familiar with and received a gwp.  Me and my mom combined our purchases at that counter so we could save 20$.  She also got something and received a gwp. I also added a butter london duo.  She made a purchase at Lancome and got a gwp and was eligible to get he 65$ kit and we did.  Saved 10$ on that and got another gwp Smiley Wink

 

Will be doing another gala tomorrow.  Really looking forward to that one Smiley Happy
