I had been hesitant to shop at JCPenney in the past, with being unfamiliar with their ordering and shipping process but as soon as I placed my first order, all worries were gone!
I've shopped at JCPenney several times since and have been really happy with the entire purchase procedure. The variety of items they sell is quite different from items we see at the usual department stores in Canada, both in-store and online. You'll find a lot of great stuff for heading back to school! At checkout, the order total shown is all-inclusive to cover all costs, so there are no additional charges at the door!
Pricing is listed in CAD for you, or you can select to go for the USD pricing if the currency exchange rate pans out better for you. Keep in mind your bank (credit card) may charge a foreign currency transaction fee.
Shipping can be pricey if you're not spending over $99 but you can always calculate it in the cart to find out. I love that JCPenney offers a flat rate of $9.99 shipping on orders over $99. With the savings that can be had on such a large variety of products, it makes it well worth it when stocking up on some items and spending over $99.
So speaking of sales, today only, there is a great sale going on:
Take an extra 25% off purchases under $100 and 30% off purchases of $100 or more. Save on select original, regular and sale-priced items. To get in on this offer, make sure you use the code GOSAVE29 during checkout! Some exclusions will apply to this offer.
Check out this Confetti Cupcake Hooded Backpack that's on sale for $35.05 CAD. It was regularly priced at $89.27 so you're saving 60% off. When you calculate the discount promo code above, the price drops down to only $26.28 plus $2.71 duty and vat fees, for a total of $28.99. This does not include shipping...
So, this goes back to what I mentioned above - the flat rate shipping fee of $9.99 when you spend over $99. In the case of this backpack, the shipping fee for that one item alone shows up as around $31.00 which is not nearly as good as paying only $9.99 for shipping!
It would be well worth your while to browse through JCPenney with a friend or relative who wants to go in with an order with you to spend over $99 total after the promo discount code is applied.
When I add 4 of these backpacks to my cart as an example, because the total cost is over $99 with the coupon discount applied, the shipping drops down to only $9.99 and the duty and vat is $10.84 for 4. This works out to around $118 for all four backpacks, which means each one was only $29.67 total including all fees!
Enjoy browsing through the JCPenney website. You will find it a refreshing change from the usual!
