Gilt (US): Free Shipping to Canada with No Minimum

Gilt (US): Free Shipping to Canada with No Minimum

Update: Just this morning the released a 40% off coupon code – use EXTRA40 (maximum $100 off). There may be other exclusions, I am not sure.

Gilt (US) is offering free global shipping for almost two weeks! I have to say this is a thrilling offer for me, as an international shopper and bargain hunter. Shipping to Canada regularly costs US$9.95.

No coupon code is needed for this offer; the discount will be automatically taken at checkout. I am pleased as punch with this offer right now. There are so many sales just waiting to be shopped that I can hardly contain myself.

Are you looking for a quality new purse on a budget? Shop the 100 handbags under $200 sale at Gilt. That is $200 US, so they will be a bit over that for Canadians as the prices include the exchange rate and duties. Still, the prices are totally worth it for the great brands and the quality materials you are purchasing.

I picked out this Fairview Novelty II Parker Snake Print Hobo by Cole Haan. It is just a bit over $200, coming in at $215.08 including duty. The bag originally retailed for $442.89. It is made of snake-embossed leather with two zipper accents on the front for a modern edgy look.

If your budget truly is $200, yet you want a handbag worth substantially more – never fear! Instead, check out the Badgley Mischka Peyton Leather Tote that was $502.71 and is now $189.63. You save over $300 on this tote and do not have to pay for shipping either.

Gilt is not just for clothing, you can find items for the home as well. Feast your eyes upon the up to 70% off Cutlery and Kitchen Gadgets sale on right now. They have such deals as these WMF Signum Steak Knives (Set of 6) for just $31.82, originally $114.54.Find a great deal on this Bamboo Chopping Board With Cover by BergHOFF for just $31.82 as well, originally $108.18. The cover is cool as my husband often preps veggies for soups and then leaves them on the cutting board, on the counter, until they are ready to go in. With the cover, it would keep them fresher and keep any errant bugs off them.

There are many other good deals in this sale. GST / HST will be charged at checkout. As duty is calculated into the price of all items to ship to Canada, there are no surprises at the door when you buy from Gilt. Take advantage of their free shipping for great deals.

August 28 Free Shipping to Canada, No Minimums! (US)

Posted by on August 28, 2014 at 7:00 AM Free Shipping to Canada, No Minimums! (US)

Over on our forums, Bargainmooser Biddle dropped us a little post to let us know that they’d just placed an order on and managed to score totally free shipping! There are no specific terms and conditions and no minimum spend either. Great deal!

Shipping from usually costs at least $9.95 so it’s a good saving to start with. The top of the site says “Enjoy US$9.95 Shipping to Canada!” but when you proceed through checkout, the shipping costs is discounted to zero, as shown here: Free Shipping to Canada, No Minimums! (US)

As some of you know, is a US based site which we’ve mentioned here on Bargainmoose a few times as it’s very popular with Canadian shoppers. Our author Avigayil is a big fan. Free Shipping to Canada, No Minimums! (US) Gilt have flash sales on top designers, at up to 60% off retail prices, so they’re incredibly popular.  Prices on are shown including duty so you don’t need to worry about any hidden surprises at your door.

There are a ton of great deals on there just now, I could spend hours browsing the site! Some quick examples:

Early Access: Women’s shoes Up to 80% Off – prices here start at ~$36 but go up and up! I love these Bailey Lace-Back High Sandal but they’re $438. Eeek! They’re a bit out of my price-comfort zone.

7 for All Mankind sale – items here starting from only $49 such as this Speckled Pocket T-Shirt.

Llum: Up to 65% Off – baby and kids clothing and fashion! ZOMG I can barely even even look at this section, I would just spend a fortune. I’m thinking of this Peggy Dress ($36.46) for my daughter for Christmas Day.

There are some beautiful items in the 808 Home: Furniture, Bedding & Décor sale. The pieces are very simple, stylish and modern. I like this Curved Floor Lamp but it’s $564… it’s more likely that I can afford this Mr Fox mug for $12.57.

As this is a free shipping no minimum event, it probably makes the most sense for you to take advantage of it on the smaller lower value items, upon which you would have previously had to pay $9.95 shipping.

Gilt (US): Free Shipping With 2+ Kids Items

Posted by on August 11, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Gilt (US): Free Shipping With 2+ Kids Items

Gilt (US) is offering free global shipping when you purchase two or more kids items. The free shipping applies to all items in your cart, whether they are children’s items or not.

This is another great back to school promotion that our Moosers can take advantage of while purchasing clothing and more. This is also back to school week at Gilt with an even greater selection of children’s clothing, accessories, and even some home/school supplies on sale. Here are a few of the sales that tickled my fancy.

K-Way Jackets

These jackets are fantastic and the sale prices make it well worth picking up a few. The Printed Jacket appears fairly basic, but it is totally adorable in multi-colour polka dot. Originally C$68.23, the children’s jacket is now on sale for C$34.12. This little jacket is stylish, a windbreaker, and comes with a hood to protect sensitive ears. Pretty much all the K-Way jackets are 50% off the original retail value. There are some long versions as well for those very blustery days.

La Minatura

I am not sure if a company can get any cuter than this one! Let us start with the adorable Whale Parka  for those chilly Canadian winter mornings. This is the sort of coat that I would have loved when I was a child. Originally C$161.74, the jacket is just C$69.50 now and available in sizes two through 14. The Tulle Tier Skirt  is also so cute with my beloved dots and a couple layers of purple and blue tulle to brighten up the grey skirt. Originally C$59.39, the skirt is now on sale for C$25.20. You can pair it with the matching Tulle Tier Top or mix and match with many of the other tops they have. I would suggest going for a basic top because the skirt is so busy itself.

Be sure to check out the other sales like 7 for All Mankind, Kids’ Bedding & Bath, as well as all the sales for adults.

Remember that all of the above prices include duty so there are no additional costs. When you buy two or more children’s items, there are no shipping charges either. This is why Gilt is one of my favourite designer sale websites in the USA to shop. Shipping usually costs $9.95, so you are saving $10 right away with this offer.

August 7 (US): Rosie Pope Maternity Up To 80% Off

Posted by on August 7, 2014 at 8:00 AM (US): Rosie Pope Maternity Up To 80% Off

If you are pregnant and want to look fashionable while your bump grows, check out this sale at Gilt on Rosie Pope Maternity, with up to 80% off original prices.

When I was pregnant with my first child, I almost bought into the “I have to look frumpy because I’m pregnant” lie. I was on a budget so I spent very little on anything nice for myself, although had I known that I’d have three pregnancies, I may have splurged a little. With my last two, I took a little more time trying to look nice and almost show off my bump. Had I known about the gorgeous clothing at Rosie Pope, I may have really gotten my hot mama on.

Avi recently blogged a great coupon code for Gilt, offering free global shipping, which has now expired, so you can expect to pay about $10 for shipping, but all of the duties for this sale are included in the price of the item. This means there are absolutely no surprises at checkout or at your door.

There are just so many outfits that I love during this sale that I wish I could mention them all to you. This Michelle dress is just beautiful and really lets you stand out from the crowd. Available in blue or red stripes, this is the perfect summer dress, which could also make a wonderful spring dress with a cardigan. I could also see this being worn post-baby. It is now $74.66, regularly $212.59.

A go-to top is really important when you are pregnant. You’ll want one that is a good quality because you’ll probably wear it again and again. This long sleeve sylvie top is a good example of a go-to pregnancy top. Regularly $86.05, now $43.02.

A great fitting pair of pants that will still fit your butt, but grow with your belly is also of the utmost importance during a pregnancy. I love, love, love these skinny pants, and they come in a variety of colours, including the camel, which would look great at work. These were $161.97 and now only $48.09.

August 4 (US) Coupon Code: Free Shipping to Canada – 24HRS ONLY

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 12:39 PM (US) Coupon Code: Free Shipping to Canada   24HRS ONLY is the premier discount designer sales website in the USA. For 24 hours only, they are offering free global shipping with the following coupon code. This is an offer you really won’t want to miss.

Click here to shop the sales @

  • Coupon Code: MYGILT
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: 5th August 2014 @ 11:59 a.m. EST

Shipping to Canada is usually $9.95 US so you are saving a $10 bill and some change (with the exchange rate) right out of the gates. When shopping from Canada, make sure you have the Canadian flag selected, as all prices will be calculated including duty so there are no surprises at checkout. That is one of the main things I love about Gilt: duty is prepaid so there are no surprises at the door and no outrageous handling fees by couriers.

Let us look at a few of my favourite sales.

Herve Leger

I have a total dream of owning one of his dresses. However, even on sale, this high-end designer’s dresses rarely retail for less than $500, so that day will be a long way off. Maybe if I put aside $25 a month, it might be doable. This Tasha Colorblock Scoop Neck Dress is the least expensive dress in the collection right now. Originally C$1,196.23, it is now C$502.42 (incl. duties).

Kate Spade New York Shoes

We have seen several handbag sales from Kate Spade themselves, but not many shoe sales. Well, you can shop either the Kate Spade Handbag sale or the Kate Spade shoe sale on This Donna T-Strap Bow Wedge Sandal is available in all sizes right now. It is a cute, understated summer sandal made of quality materials. Originally C$299.69, this pair of shoes is now on sale for C$124.66 (incl. duties).

Shoshanna & More: Up to 80% Off

I do not know all of the designers in this sale, but the prices are good if you can find what you want in your size. I did find some Diane von Furstenberg dresses on sale for over 50% off that are quite attractive. This Bally Jersey Ruched Dress is available in a size large. Originally C$308.50, the little black dress is now on sale for C$137.25 (incl. duties). With free shipping on your purchase, the price you see is the price you pay.

There are many sales on Gilt for women, men, and children. Have a look on their website to see if anything else appeals to you. There is plenty to look at.

Gilt & MyHabit Coupon Codes (US): Extra 20% Off Discounted Designer Goods

Posted by on July 1, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Gilt & MyHabit Coupon Codes (US): Extra 20% Off Discounted Designer Goods

Both Gilt (US) and MyHabit (US) are offering an extra 20% off your order of discounted designer goods in honour of Canada Day.

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: GILT20
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 2nd July 2014

This coupon is valid on all women’s, men’s, baby & kids, and home items on Gilt up to a maximum discount of $50. Gilt is my favourite of the two discount designer websites because they offer a low shipping rate to Canada: $9.95 and all duties/customs are charged upfront so there are no surprises crossing the border.

They also have some exclusive Canada Day sales just for Canadians to shop. Women’s accessories are up to 70% off including this Ava & Aiden Sandra Almond-Toe Pump that was $232.71 and is now $60.33 including duty. Use the above coupon code for an extra 20% off.

Personally, I am shopping for new tops since I wore threw two of my favourites in the last few months. This Wool Waffle Textured Button Cardigan by Duffy was $438.34 and is now on sale for $134.21 including duties. Use the above coupon code for an extra 20% off.

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: FIREWORK
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 1st July 2014

Both these websites are a lot like Beyond the Rack, just with more extensive designers and often hard to get designers in Canada. MyHabit is new to Bargainmoose, so time for a quick introduction. They offer a flat $25 shipping rate to Canada but they do not pre-charge customs/duties. Those are your responsibility when your package crosses the border. Frankly, I prefer Gilt’s model better: but some people like to take a chance with their package in hopes that they will completely avoid customs.

MyHabit certainly has a different selection of designers, which is also why people will choose to shop there. I highly recommend the Made in The USA: Eva Franco sale that is on right now. Canadians do not pay duty on anything manufactured in the USA so you could order from that sale and not worry about being hit with anything coming across the border. This Eva Franco Women’s Venice Dress (Dune) was $345 and is now $99. After coupon code, it comes down to $79.20 USD. 

All prices on Gilt are listed in Canadian dollars, whereas all prices on MyHabit are in USD. Take advantage of these Canada Day promotions from our friends south of the border.

Have you ever shopped at either of these websites? If so, let us know your thoughts!

Gilt (US): Free Shipping to Canada

Gilt (US) is currently offering free shipping on all Canadian orders till almost the end of the month. Shipping to Canada normally costs $9.95 so you are saving a good bit right from the start.

Shopping from Gilt is pretty simple if you are Canadian. You save the initial shipping fee and then at checkout Gilt makes cross border shopping really simple with the guaranteed order total displayed in your preferred currency, including applicable duties and taxes. You pay them all up front so there are no surprise landing costs or brokerage charges when the parcel arrives in Canada.

I have mentioned the awesomeness of Gilt before and how you can find designer goods that are not easily accessible in Canada like Miu Miu Accessories & Apparel. Better yet, this website has everything on sale so you can get some great deals on your classy new items.

Along with free shipping for Canadians, this month we also get exclusive access to some sweet Canadian designers. Check out these Ela handbags by Canadian designer Ela Aldorsson. Sales run for a few days and change often so check back regularly for new designers.

Gilt (US): Free Shipping to Canada Deal

Posted by on November 21, 2013 at 8:30 PM

Gilt (US): Free Shipping to Canada Deal

Gilt (US) is currently offering free shipping on all Canadian orders for the rest of November. Shipping to Canada normally costs $9.95 so you are saving a good chunk of money.

Shopping from Gilt is actually simple for Canadians. With the free shipping you save that initial $10. At checkout, they calculate and display a guaranteed order total in your preferred currency, including applicable duties and taxes. You pay them up front so there are no mysterious landing costs or high brokerage charges when the parcel arrives at your door. Everything is done at the store level for convenience.

Gilt is a really popular US website I run across on blogs everywhere. They sells fashionable goods and designer goods much like Beyond The Rack but they have a much more extensive collection with brands you will rarely find from a Canadian website. I have seen some really awesome sales on designers I love like Valentino, Fleur of England, and more. Even with the duty charges it is often much cheaper to buy these items across the border than try to purchase them in Canada. Since Gilt automatically offers discounts off the retail price you know you are already getting a good deal. They not only sell fashion for men, women, and children; they also have items for the home and gift ideals.

You can find brands like Zac Posen in the women’s section which includes elegant dresses, jackets, and more. These Top 10 Toys for kids are a great way to get gift ideas and save money at the same time. If you need your morning caffeine fix then check out the Nespresso sale that is on right now.

Each sale is on for a limited time only and different designers are introduced regularly. Often the hottest deals will sell out the quickest so I suggest signing up for their newsletters so you know what is being released and when.
