As a Canadian, the worst thing you can see you while shopping online is "We do not ship to Canada". Huh?! I'm always so confused and upset when I see that.
Especially when the store is USA-based.
Or when companies do ship to Canada but the shipping cost is tripled. I can't remember what the company was but I had put a $20 worth of items in my checkout and taxes alone was $15. Huh?! I just hit the X and signed right out. No thank you!
These stats maybe a bit out of date but still relevant: In 2012, Canadians spent $18.9 billion online according to Stats Canada. Let me say that again.. $18.9 billion dollars! That's insane!
I'm always looking for discounts/promo codes which work for Canadians. I shouldn't put more effort into tweeting them or putting them into blog post so all Canadians can enjoy. I was recently introduced to a website called flipit with deals with Canadian only promos/discounts.
One of the things that I really like about the website is that you can browse by categories. Like fashion and accessories or shoes. My favourite L'Occitane hand cream is almost out and with a promo code it helps my overall online purchase.
Do you have any funny online shopping stories?
