Online Stores with Free or Cheap Returns

Online Stores with Free or Cheap Returns

This is a guest post by a Mooser who loves Bargainmoose and checks it every day and does a lot of online shopping because of her location. Thanks Susan from Saskatoon!

As online shopping gains popularity in Canada, companies are becoming more competitive by offering free or low cost shipping. If you’re someone who shops online to save time, save money,  geographic limitations,  or just because, at some point you will receive something you wish you could return. You may be more inclined to order from an online store knowing you can easily make a return by mail or courier for a small cost, or even better, free.

The following are some points to consider regarding “free or cheap” online returns to ensure you are an educated purchaser. Keep in mind these points only pertain to online returns and do not consider returning the items in store.

Meet the Free Shipping Minimum: Most online stores offer free shipping, or free shipping with a minimum purchase. If you can return items at no cost or for a small return fee, ordering additional items to reach the minimum free shipping threshold is in your best interest.

Evaluate your “Return Fee Risk”: Some stores charge a small return fee or re-stocking fee. Evaluate the benefits of ordering from this company and ensure they outweigh the risks of having to return items and get charged this fee. For example, Club Monaco charges a $5 return fee. Chances are, if you were to shop in store, you’d spend more than $5 on gas and parking so the return fee is justifiable.

Minimize or Eliminate your Return Fee: One way to minimize your return fees is to return multiple orders in one parcel, then contact Customer Service to ask if you can just be charged one return fee. Also, inspect your items carefully when they arrive. For example if you ordered several sweaters and one has a fabric pull, the store will mostly likely accept the return of the damaged item, and anything else you decide to return, at their cost.

Return Policy Timelines: Be aware of the return policy timelines, if you must return your merchandise within 30 days or 60 days for example. Lululemon has the shortest return timeline I’m aware of at 14 days from the delivery date.

Sale items/Clearance/Final sale: Be informed of what you can and cannot return. Some online stores will allow you to return sale-price merchandise, but not clearance-priced. Also note which items are final sale, such as underwear.

Return Method: Note the return method the store utilizes and its convenience. The most commonly used shipping carriers in Canada are Canada Post, Fed-Ex and UPS. Do you live or work near a Canada Post outlet? Will you plan to take your parcel to a Fed-Ex or UPS store, or call to arrange a pick-up? Some stores include a pre-paid shipping label, others you have to request one. If you have to request a shipping label, it will either be mailed or emailed to you.

Now that you’re fully educated on merchandise returns, here are some clothing, footwear and accessory stores that offer free or cheap returns. Be sure to read the return policy for additional details prior to placing an order.

Free Returns:

Stores with minimal return fees:

I’d like to see The Bay offer free returns. You could also check out our list of stores that ship for free, as many of them might do free returns as well.

Bargainmoosers, do you have some stores to add to this list? Are there some stores you wish offered free returns?

Quiksilver: Men’s Elion 3-in-1 Jacket Was $250 | Now $120 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 12, 2015 at 3:27 PM

Quiksilver: Mens Elion 3 in 1 Jacket Was $250 | Now $120 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

I think I just found the perfect all-season coat over at Quicksilver.  This 3-in-1 jacket will take up a third of the space in my closet.  Regularly $250, it is on sale for $200.99.  Add the promo code WINTER40 and the price drops 40% more to $120.59!

This is a very nice jacket made by Elion that can transform into a snow jacket, rain jacket or a lightweight shell.  I’m thinking this would be a great jacket for hiking here on the West Coast.  I could shed a layer if I was getting too warm or use the rain jacket with hood part if I ran into some rain.  Conversely, if I were heading back east right now, I’d be using all three parts and then some to keep warm.

You get the choice of either “Dusty Olive or “Phantom Black” colours.  I see right now the phantom style only has small and medium left in stock.  The olive style has all sizes from small to XXL still in stock so take that into account when you’re picking a style.

This is the perfect time of year to find deals on winter clothing.  Most places are trying to move their winter styles out for the spring styles.  This only benefits us, the consumers, that have been hanging in there looking for a good deal.  The sale at Quicksilver is not only for winter gear or clothing but has a nice mix of spring/summer too.

Make sure to take a look at their other items that are on sale.  They have items like:  beanies, skate shorts, T-shirts, belts, wallets, backpacks, just to name a few. You might also want to check the kids section to see what other hot deals Quiksilver has going on.

To go along with your jacket, why not get this Feel the Heat beanie as well. It is originally $22, on sale for $15.99 and is now only $9.59.

Shipping is free and delivered by Purolator. Because they ship from the U.S., you may encounter duties or fees, but these are all calculated for you right at checkout so you know what you are paying before you get that knock on your door.

Chapters Indigo Canada Printable Coupon: Buy One Book & Get One 50% Off

Posted by on January 8, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada Printable Coupon: Buy One Book & Get One 50% Off

Starting today until January 14th, buy one book at regular price and save 50% off the second regularly priced book.  Valid in-store only at Chapters Indigo, Coles, Smithbooks, Indigo Spirit and The Book Company locations.

If you’re looking for a good book to help you get through the winter blues, then this is a deal for you.  Winter has to be the best time of the year to get a new page-turner.  Who doesn’t like to curl up by the fire with a nice warm blanket and forget all your troubles for a bit?  This may be a good time to get the kids a book or two for the upcoming spring break too.

This deal is probably best suited for finding a book that you’ve forgotten to pick up at some point.  Newer and popular titles are already discounted by at least 27% or more.  You’ll have to dig around a bit to find something that is not marked down by at least 25%.  I have found that Chapters online pricing doesn’t necessarily correlate to their in-store pricing.  In my experience in-store prices are a bit more then what they show online for some reason.  It would be best to just go down to your nearest store and have a look around and see what you can find.

I’m interested in picking up the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy: Box Set for $33, as I loved the movie.  Another movie I’m a big fan of and can’t believe I haven’t read is The Hobbit.  The softcover is $9 online but I have a feeling it will be a few bucks more in-store.  I’m pretty sure I had it at one time but got lost in the shuffle of a previous move.

The “fine print” has a few restrictions in it you should be aware of.  The offer excludes everyday Bestseller discounts, French language titles and Rosetta Stone branded products. Be sure to check out this coupon in the forum before you shop so you know all the limits.

Moosers what titles are you thinking of picking up?

Amazon Canada: iRobot Braava 380T Floor Mopping Robot Was $350 | Now $250 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 7, 2015 at 4:46 PM

Amazon Canada: iRobot Braava 380T Floor Mopping Robot Was $350 | Now $250 (EXPIRED)

Say goodbye to backache and treat yourself to an automated solution to the mop and bucket!  Right now over at Amazon.ca you can save $100 off the price of an iRobot automated floor mop.

I find these days it is getting harder and harder to remember to do the chores around the house.  From putting in more hours at the office to chasing around kids and their activities – there just isn’t enough time in the day anymore.  Why do we continue to complicate our lives when technology is making it easier to get the little things done?  That’s where this neat little device named “iRobot” comes in.  I have been thinking for a while now about getting one of these.  Mostly just to watch in fascination as it scoots about the kitchen!

This is the current floor mopping robot “Braava” from iRobot that is on sale for $249.99 down from $349.99.  Not to be confused with the “Scooba” which is a floor scrubber that retails for $600.  The Braava will essentially replace the broom, mop and bucket to a degree.  If you’re looking to get deep grime and marks off your floor the Scooba is a better solution.  The Braava features a dry and damp mop mode to efficiently pick up any dirt, dust and hairs.  One neat feature I like is you can use iRobot’s reusable microfibre cloths instead of always throwing away a disposable cleaning pad.

The dry mop can clean up to 1000 square feet and the damp mop can clean up to 350 square feet.  That is a pretty decent range that should suit most of our kitchen and bathroom floors.  The battery lasts about four hours for dry cleaning and two and a half for wet.  The Braava only takes two hours to completely charge in its dock.  A couple things to note is the navigation cube requires 2 – C batteries which are included and you’ll have to manually put the mop in its charging cradle.  This will work for every hard surface you have including:  tile, vinyl, hardwood and laminate.

The reviews on this model are pretty good with most rating it 4/5 stars.  Here’s one review from Amazon that sums up how well it cleans.

Oh so quiet and it does an amazing job, have been using it everyday (almost) and it has saved me so much work amazing! Our family has two labs, one cat and four kids so this item is like an extra pair of arms, I use this after my scheduled Roomba vacuums up all the dog hair.

The cheapest I could find it elsewhere is at Best Buy and Future Shop where it is also on sale, for $280.  This is definitely something I’m thinking I should have asked for as a Christmas gift.

You get free shipping at Amazon for anything over $25.

Be Secure on the Internet with Private Internet Access VPN ($32USD Per Year) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 30, 2014 at 11:32 AM

Be Secure on the Internet with Private Internet Access VPN ($32USD Per Year) (EXPIRED)

If you’re like me and are always looking for ways to stay secure on the World Wide Web then you should give a VPN a try. Right now the best VPN solution that a few of my “tech head” buddies and myself have been talking about is on sale over at Private Internet Access for just $31.95USD per year. This is the lowest price that is usually only seen a few times a year!

There are many VPN solutions out there, so many that it can really make one’s head spin. Forget all the rest and take a look at Private Internet Access’ service today. For the sale price of $31.95 a year you get a wealth of Internet security and anonymity. That works out to be $2.66/ per month for some great protection! They only typically have it this low a few times a year – usually around Black Friday and Boxing Day. You do get a 7-day trial period where you can ask for a refund if you’re not satisfied with their service during that time.

You might be wondering how does a VPN exactly work? Simply put, a VPN or virtual private network, “tunnels” your data past the lurking eyes of your Internet Service Provider (ISP), government and the rest of the web. This is the best way to stay “anonymous” on the web as your data is turned from raw readable data into a highly encrypted file that no one can read. There is also identity protection, firewall and IP cloaking included in the service.

This service has many features that make it well worth the cost of a cup of coffee a month. One of the features I like is that it supports nearly every computer operating system including: Windows 8, Mac OS X 10.9, Linux/Unix iPhone, iPhone & Android. It is also helpful to note that you don’t have to be a “techie” to install this service onto your computer. It takes little to no effort to setup, as there is no bulky software package required.

There are a plethora of others to choose from that may be cheaper but I find they don’t offer the same support that Private Internet Access does. They have a very well-constructed website that includes a FAQ section that has a wealth of information. There are also very helpful forums out there that have answers to a lot of different questions you might have.

Amazon.ca: Pick Up Your Order At Over 6,200 Canada Post Locations

Posted by on December 14, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Amazon.ca: Pick Up Your Order At Over 6,200 Canada Post Locations

Have you ever taken off part of a day just to be home to receive that super important package in the mail only to miss the delivery?  Remember how it feels when no one comes?  Worried someone will take it off your doorstep?  Well, Amazon is trying to eliminate those fears with their new program “Amazon Shipping Points.”  They have partnered with Canada Post and their 6,200+ locations Canada-wide as pick up points.  Now you can skip the middle man and pick up your order when it’s convenient for you.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Place your eligible item in your shopping cart and proceed to the checkout
  2. Click “Choose a Pick Up Location” when selecting a delivery address
  3. Search by postal code, address, or landmark to find a location
  4. Find the Post Office in your area of choices that is convent to you
  5. Select “Ship to this Address”
  6. Complete the order as usual

Pick Up process:

Amazon will email you when your order is ready for pick up.  Included in that email will be a unique barcode and the hours of operation of the location selected. Simply show that barcode on your mobile phone or print off the email and present along with your photo I.D. that matches the billing address on the original order.  They will hold your order for 15 days so you can pick up when it’s convenient for you.  If you don’t pick up your item within 15 calendar days of delivery, it will be returned to Amazon for a full refund.

Restrictions:

The item must be sold or fulfilled by Amazon.ca.  It can’t be a Subscribe-and-Save item.  It must have a length of no more than 2 meters or a length + girth of no more than 3 meters. The shipping weight should be no more than 30kg.

This is a neat new feature that other big box stores like Futureshop, Best Buy, and The Source having been doing for some time now.  It will be great to pick up your order on the way home for work or school.  It saves you the worry of having your new Macbook sitting out in the open in front of prying eyes!  I’m still waiting for a drone to deliver my package like Amazon.com has been testing in the U.S.!

Staples Canada: Mousepad Only $10

Posted by on November 17, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Staples Canada: Mousepad Only $10

The Logitech G240 mouse pad is now $9.99 at Staples and it regularly retails for $19.99.

It doesn’t come with any free shipping offers but you can check the store inventory and reserve it to pick up in store instead. It has free shipping when you spend $45 and so if you have regular purchases to make from Staples you can add this to your purchase.

If you want to buy a stocking filler for the gamer in your life this would make a good start.  It would also make a good gift for anyone who has to travel for work and needs to make an awkward space into a work surface that the mouse will move on while on the go.

The mouse pad comes with a 3-year warranty, which suggests that it will last, since the manufacturers are willing to back a product that will get heavy wear and tear. It will work particularly well with other Logitech products as it is matched to Logitech G sensors, but it will work with any mouse.

Reviewers of this product had this to say:

Overall a very thin, smooth mouse pad which is pretty big too, so you get good $/square feet ratio. However, the mouse pad is a dust magnet so watch out if you’re using it with a mouse that tends to have problems when dust accumulates in its sensor or mouse feet. This mouse pad’s MSRP is expensive. Would only recommend when it goes on sale.

The normal price of this mouse pad is more than I would pay, but I agree with the reviewer the sale makes it something I would definitely be interested in. It can make your experience with an everyday item like your mouse a little less frustrating.

Amazon Canada: Seinfeld Complete Series Only $50/ Was $150

Posted by on November 17, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Seinfeld Complete Series Only $50/ Was $150

Retro TV shows are the best. Retro TV box sets are even better. The Seinfeld: Complete Box Set is on sale for $49.99 down from $149.99 on Amazon.ca and with free shipping.

Here is another great gift for the hard to buy for person on your list – years worth of laughs from a comedy legend like Seinfeld. The series is worth buying on DVD since you can watch your favorite episodes instead of whatever is available on a given day on TV. You can also lend discs to friends and family.

The 180 episodes of Seinfeld are not available on Netflix as of yet or any other free streaming media. Even if there is a deal for it to come to Netflix or similar they may not make all of the episodes available all of the time. The DVD box set also has a few extras like bloopers and deleted scenes, which will appeal to die-hard fans of the series. It also comes with subtitles in several languages for the hearing impaired.

There are lots of positive reviews to choose from on Amazon.ca and very few negative. There are 53 reviews of this product and there is one low review of 3 stars. The 3 star rating was only because the buyer switched the menu to Spanish and was unsure of how to change it back.

One reviewer had this to say :

Great series, great price. Seinfeld is a show you can watch over and over again. I’m constantly referencing real life situations to specific episodes. The ensemble cast was perfect and the ‘show about nothing’ covered such a wide swath of situations not normally seen on sitcom tv. The box set is wonderfully packaged in a compact and easy to access format. Looking forward to getting through all the extra material on the dvds. Highly recommended buy!

With savings like this it is an easy option to give the 90s tv fan in your life the gift of watching their favorite show about “nothing” this season.

Girls LCD Watches Were $12 Now Only $5 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (Quick)

Posted by on November 16, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Girls LCD Watches Were $12 Now Only $5 & Free Shipping @ Walmart! (Quick)

If you are starting shopping for gifts early, Walmart has a great option right now. Various girls Disney Princess LCD watches are on clearance for only $5 with free shipping. There are a few favorite Disney characters to choose from like Cinderella, and Tinkerbell. This is an online only deal, these watches are not sold in Walmart stores.

These watches are suitable for three years and up so not only is it a great toy or accessory it can also teach your little one to keep track of time. The Disney Pricess watch comes with three covers featuring a different Disney princess. I have a little cousin who loves to pick out her own clothing and it would be a great option for her to also pick with princess cover she might like to wear too.

The watch case itself has a stainless steel backing and is sliver tone. There is a printed adjustable plastic strap with a metal buckle, because it is not entirely made of plastic it will not just fall apart with regular use. The plastic is good on the strap for comfort on the wrist. It is battery operated, but unlike other gifts for the holidays, batteries are included.

The Tinkerbell and Cinderella watches also come without the cover and feature a picture on the front. The rest of the Disney watches on the Walmart Canada are still regular price of $12. Although the same watch featuring the Hulk that is also on sale for $5 has already sold out.

Two mothers who left reviews of both the Disney Princess and Hulk watches had this to say:

I bought this as a gift for my girl and was shocked to find how much increased her ability to learn about time. Being stylish she loved the pattern too. Full price utility for me.

Couldn’t find a Hulk watch anywhere and it was the only thing my 4 year old asked Santa for Christmas. Found this one online and it was shipped surprising quick. It arrived well on time for Christmas! Exactly what he wanted.

Check out Walmart for easy savings on a gift that is sure to be well-liked by the little ones in your life that love the Disney princesses. At a clearance price like this it won’t last long during the holiday season.

Xbox One & PS4 Games Only $20 In-Store @ Shoppers Drugmart (YMMV)

Posted by on November 16, 2014 at 9:01 AM

Xbox One & PS4 Games Only $20 In Store @ Shoppers Drugmart (YMMV)

In-store at Shoppers Drug Mart right now, a huge number of great games are on a clearance sale – $20 each. There are a wide variety of classic games, but you have to check your local Shoppers to see what they have in stock as these games are not in all stores. As the title says, YMMV – your mileage may vary.

Some of these games are still being sold at other Canadian retailers for upwards of $69.99. Here’s a selection of some of the titles that you may find for $20 so far:

For the PS4: Kill zone, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Infamous Second Son, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Watch Dogs, The Last of Us, Diablo 3 Ultimate, Mine Craft, LEGO Marvel, Call of Duty Black Ops.

Some of the Xbox One games for $20: Titanfall, Battlefield 4, Halo 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Dead Rising 3, Diablo 3 Ultimate, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Infamous Second Son.

There appear to be a number of previous generation console games on sale too. Examples for the DS/3DS: Zelda, Kirby, Mario, Donkey Kong.

Some titles have been clearly priced as a clearance item or even some marked as liquidation, so it may be apparent which games you can save on. However, some games have been marked at usual price on the shelves but it’s only when they are scanned by the cashier that the discounted price is seen. I would say to try a few of the above games out for scanning with the cashier as you never know which one might come up on sale. In light of this, I would also say to go to the store in person and not phone in, so you can have complete clarity on where all the deals are.

The items being largely marked for clearance, or not even marked on the label but discounted at the till would suggest that these deals may be available for a little while yet and new deals are being spotted all the time. However, remember that certain stores will only have a limited stock of certain titles, and that these fabulous deals could be cut off at any point, so best to be an early bird to catch these juicy worms. Check out your local Shoppers Drug Mart now, and see if your store has one of these classic gaming titles at a bargain price!

Tell us in the comments below which games you manage to score!

Seagate 5TB External Drive Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada!

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Seagate 5TB External Drive Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada!

If you need more space to back up your files or your computer memory is getting filled up, Dell has sale on a 5TB expansion drive. The Seagate Expansion Desktop 5TB drive is on sale for $164.99 and if you enter the Dell coupon code KCMT5$TC6QK8MT you can get an additional $25 off. This makes for a total savings of $90 from the original price of $229.99, it’s now down to only $139.99 with free shipping.

There are a few reasons to get an expansion or back-up drive for your computer. The most important one in my mind, is having secondary storage for the things that matter. I kept putting off getting an expansion or even a back-up drive until my computer packed up and then it was nearly too late. Fortunately someone got it all back for me, but it is always a good idea to back up your computer! In case you haven’t used one before, the expansion drive is a really easy one to use. You just plug it in and drag and drop your files to store them.

Expansion drives are also useful because if you have lot of photos, videos and music, you don’t clog up all of your computer’s internal drive. For me, it adds up quickly because I love taking photos.  Then my computer slows down and it really impacts the quality of the performance of the machine. With the expansion drive I don’t have to worry about keeping too much content on the computer itself.

When looking at a price comparison of other Canadian retailers the Seagate Expansion drive with 4TB is on sale at Best Buy, The Source and Future Shop are all selling for around $149.99 and up, so $10 more and with one terabyte less than the savings with this Dell offer. The other 5TB machines from some of these shops aren’t on sale and still retail in the range of upwards of $200.

Some people I know have two drives especially if it contains precious photo memories. Often they choose to store them in different physical locations in case one fails, is lost or stolen. If you have been shopping around for a 5TB expansion drive at this price it would be a good choice to pick up a first or second drive.

Ikea Sofas, Loveseats & Armchairs: BOGO 50% Off!

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Ikea Sofas, Loveseats & Armchairs: BOGO 50% Off!

There is no time like the holidays to get your home looking at its best, which is great because Ikea is having a sale! There’s a choice of two offers; buy any fabric sofa, love seat or armchair and get the second 50% off – or, don’t pay for six months with your Ikea credit card.

The Ikea Ektorp sofa is a classic style that is one for the ages. I know several people who have had products from the Ektorp range for years and have found them to be durable. If you have a bit more contemporary style the Karlstad and Kivik ranges have modern, clean straight lines. I’ve had my eye on Karlstad L-shaped sofa for a while now, it’s a nice solid sofa to cover with my many throw cushions! With this deal it isn’t just sofas, you can get two armchairs or a love seat and sofa, whatever combination you like.

Unfortunately the leather products aren’t part of the promo. That’s okay for me because the great part about Ikea soft furnishings is that you can take off the covers. If you have pets or kids and your sofa is a bit worse for wear, you can take the covers off and have them cleaned. Or if you fancy yourself as an interior decorator and need a makeover every so often, you can buy the covers in a different colour and give your room a new look.

Ikea is big box at its best which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but there are ways to take the generic items and make them your own style. There are a lot of Ikea hacks on Pinterest and changing something like the legs on furniture can make a big difference. When I was last in Ikea I noticed there are different choices for the legs on sofas and chairs now too. All the different ranges come with a selection of covers, with the biggest selection for covers in the Ektorp range.

There aren’t always sales or promos on soft furnishings at Ikea, they usually have a few sale events a year, aside from when a particular range is discontinued. If you want to spruce up your living room and you’re not sure which range to go for, now is a good time to have a browse and snap up a bargain.

Free Gifts With The Cineplex Holiday Gift Pack

If you usually buy gift cards for friends and family over the holiday season, from November 12, 2014 – January 3, 2015, Cineplex is offering a gift bundle with the purchase of $40 or more worth of gift cards. It is a big bundle and there is a lot in it! You don’t have to buy just one gift card you can split it up, as long as the total is $40 or more.

The gift bundle includes:

  • Buy one get one free admission (valid January 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015)
  • One free ticket upgrade
  • One free regular popcorn  (valid January 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015)
  • One free digital movie rental on CineplexStore.com  (valid January 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015)
  • Pin code for 100 Scene points  (valid January 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015)
  • $10 off with $40 purchase at Toys R Us  (valid February 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015)
  • Quebec and Atlantic provinces only $6.99 admission  (valid January 1, 2015 – March 31, 2015)

Even if you aren’t looking to give the gift cards as gifts, but know that you usually watch movies, over the next few months there will be some good new movies coming out that you can go see yourself. You could buy the gift cards for yourself and use them and then have the bundle for your own use as well the beginning of next year.

The Scene points can really add up quickly. I usually buy only the food items that offer extra Scene points and I have had lots of free movies! Also the free ticket upgrade is definitely worth it. I have seen big movie releases like The Hobbit at VIP, so that I know I will get a seat and I won’t have to wait in line.

If you are looking to add more to friends and family’s stockings alongside your gift card purchases or if you just want to take advantage of an extra perk of the holiday season for your own Scene account, it is good value to go with this Cineplex bundle this year.
