Any Canadians out there?

If so how do you feel about this duty we are being charged? Anyone still buying? Do we have any options?

Re: Any Canadians out there?

20x the points events are something that Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have.  They are both Canadian only companies.

Re: Any Canadians out there?

It's for a Canadian store, called Shoppers Drug Mart, which is only for Canadians. Murale is by Shoppers Drug Mart so the point system qualifies there too.

Re: Any Canadians out there?

The 20X event was just for that day,  if you check on Murale they will show when they have 20X events. 

Re: Any Canadians out there?

a lot of their samples are deluxe, it's great! I love the It's Potent eye cream from benefit. I had to use 100pt perk to get it from sephora though.

Re: Any Canadians out there?

I also have not ordered online since the duty was implemented. The thing is, until last November (when I started regularly going on BT) I had never end ordered online. Then I saw all these promos and samples we get from ordering online and I decided never to shop in store after that. It's not like I don't have any Sephoras near me. i have one about 10 minutes away from my home but some of the cast members there haved ruined my shopping experience there.

 

Since the extra duty I have made one purchase in store (old meteorites!!!) and that wasn't even my local Sephora. This other Sephora is a thousand more times friendlier and generous than my Sephora. I'm planning on shopping there for Chic week, but like the rest of you I'm also exploring other options.

Re: Any Canadians out there?

I can't remember exactly when the duty charge was implemented but I've only made 2 small orders this year and I wasn't charged duty on either. Part of the reason I haven't placed any orders is because I'm a little annoyed that I spent $1000 to hit Rouge and the major perk of that for me was free shipping but now there's a new charge - duty. I foresee Shoppers and Murale getting the $1000 I would have normally spent at Sephora this year.

Re: Any Canadians out there?

This is my concern. I'm about $200 away from Rouge, but since the duty charges, it almost doesn't seem worth it... when Shoppers/Murale carry 90% of the brands I buy anyways.

 

Sidenote: found out the SDM near my work carries UB, Stila, Dior and Guerlain! I'm beyond excited!

Re: Any Canadians out there?

I just bought something tonight and I'm pissed!  Not only was I told the over charging in taxes was fixed which it isn't but I got charged more on duty. When you are checking out it gives you an amount duty.... well the actual amount I paid was like double than what it showed at checked. WTF?  I'll stop my post here since what I have to say would get deleted.

Re: Any Canadians out there?

Have you contacted Sephora? Did they offer a solution?

I've put together a few different shopping carts over the last few days, trying to decide the few things I wanted to use the 15% code on and every time I clicked check out, the calculated tax was wrong. Ugh. 

Re: Any Canadians out there?

No I decided not to call them.  I'd get this load of BS I usually get and well the CS isn't so good. Once I get it, it's going back and I want a full refund! I don't like being played.  It might only be a few dollars but it's the principle and this pisses me off!
