Canadian MAC

I wish I could have posted this sooner, but there's always next time. Today I visited the MAC store online to make some purchases using the current SAVE25 sumo promotion. Upon checkout, I couldn't find where to enter the discount code (duh!) so I started instant messaging an online rep.

She helped me out more than I could have imagined. You see, after my discount was entered I noticed that I wasn't receiving free shipping for my over $60 purchase. She insisted that I should be able to use the discount code and get free shipping for my hefty purchase. The nice lady gave me two customer service phone numbers. I tried the first one a few times only to receive a busy signal. Frustrated, I tried the second number.

What happened next was a pleasant surprise. I learned that I called the Canadian customer service number but was certainly able to place my order over the phone. The delightful voice on the other end of the telephone proceeded to tell me that because I had called the Canada number my order would have no tax. Fabulous!

By the end of my call, I had purchased all of my products and saved over $20! No tax, 25% off, and no shipping. Wow, those Canadians really are as nice as everybody says =)

For $50 something, I made out with a Pro Palette Eye Shadow X 4, Technakohl Liner in Graphblack, Eye Shadow/Pro Palette Refill Pan in Ricepaper, Select Sheer/Pressed powder, and Prep + Prime Skin. The powder and primer alone would have cost the amount I paid for all of the items I bought. AND the rep threw in a free mascara for me. I'm sure it's a trial size, but it's MAC...I'll take it!

The SAVE25 discount is good today, so you may still be able to get your order in. It's worth a try.

From now on, if you are going to order from MAC I suggest you call the Canadian customer service number 1-800-387-6707. You welcome! ; )
