    Default Canadian Department & Drugstore Deals Of The Week

    Occasionally I'll skim through a flyer and notice a great deal or give away on a certain scent. Possibly even info on a new release or a coupon. Most of the time they don't interest me, but I thought they might interest others so I decided to start a thread like this to share the info. I'm most likely do one post a week.

    The many stores include Sears, The Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Zellers, Superstore, etc...

    Also, if you know of any great deal or offer, please feel free to post about any local or department store chain.

    Anyways, not much going on this week, but I've seen great deals before. Hopefully this will get better as time goes.

    Whhaaaat ??!! I don't really like to go there, not because I am a snob, but because I'm too good for that store . But I'm going to have to stop by to see what else they have. I have RG already, and its great.


    nsamadi : thanks for the update. I checked our flyer ( for Shoppers DM), but it never listed any of those in it. Will have to go see . Last time I went they had Joop ! Jump for $49....no big deal, unless a person only buys frags from The Bay and Sears, then $49 may be a "great" price...... I did see The Bay's father day booklet with the scents. I want to know about this Canali Summer Night ...sounds interesting.

    Thanks for the heads up on Shoppers Drug Mart for the upcoming week, I'm really tempted now with the Polo Black's ( but I don't want another scent that does not last?)

    I saw the SEARS booklet today, they have CHAPS for $45 ( 50 ml). It looks like a new bottle, unless this is altogether a new scent with the same name. Also, with the Dolce & Gabbana on for $66, it is the Light Blue scent, not Pour Homme. I don't know if thats a bad thing, but just to clarify. Light Blue was advertised as part of their top 10 seller's ( Gasp !)

    Superstore out of all places, has Azzaro for $19.99, Davidoff Silver Shadow for the same as well, and

    Thanks again nsamadi.


    PS : I did get the same sale last week at the Shoppers DM, but somehow missed it. Thanks for the updates

    Welcome once again and thanks for the info you shared. I also know Superstore had 50ml bottles of YSL M7 for $39.99 in the past but I don't know if they do now. They also occasionally have an in flyer coupon of 5 dollars off any fragrance purchase over 30 dollars, so I'll post that if I ever see it.

    Also, yes you're correct. It's the Light Blue Pour Homme. Sorry, I was typing away too fast. I corrected that now.

    Again, enjoy the deals.

    EDIT: Just wanted to briefly mention. The Bay also has similar Father's Day gift specials, very much like what Sears is offering. The typical free duffle bag with purchase and great gift set discount. Way too many to list, though nothing really on the cheap side.

    Also Zellars has Nautica Competition & the new Lamborghini scent for less than 20 dollars. They also have the new Adidas 001 scent (i think that's what it's called), and a few gift set deals.

    I saw The Bay flyer booklet, quite a bit of promotion, but as mentioned, nothing at even a decent rate. If you want a decent wardrobe and want to explore a bit, I don't know if spending $90 per bottle is the way to go ( as far as mainstream goes).

    Anyways, "Superstore", everybody's favorite perfume shop , does have a sale advertised. 50 % off some designer frags. Included in the picture were Hummer, Brit, Drakkar, Very Iressistable, and Joop Hoome. They generally have decent prices. Givenchy towel and Burberry Metro-sexual bag not included

    Thanks Sufacing. I noticed the Superstore discount, but it was too general and didn't list any scents, so I didn't know if I should mention it or not, but thanks for bringing it up.

    London Drugs - Prices effective June 10-15. 2008

    Drakkar Noir 30ml EDT & RL Polo Sport 40ml EDT for 19.99 each. I really recommend the Polo Sport. One of the better aquatic scents, and at an amazing price.

    Superstore :

    Cool Water Deep, Chrome ( Azzaro), Burberry Weekend, Perry Ellis, and HUGO are all $29.99 . These sales usually go past the flyer dates, but selection would be less as time goes by, obviously. Buy Burberry Weekend at your own risk, weak juice apparently.

    Sorry for not really posting here a lot lately. I just haven't seen any deals.

    Last week I saw Paris Hilton For Men 40ml bottle selling at Shoppers for $9.99. I always thought it smelt like a powdery watermelon scent maybe close to Creed MI. Worth checking out IMO.

    You think Walmart is the last place to have any good fragrances, right? Well, they're sitting on a HUGE stockpile of Rive Gauche, apparently, and they're selling each 125ml at $20. Right beside the Swiss Army's for men and Jovan Musks.

    This is what it'll look like, if each Walmart is dedicated to its planograms (Rive Gauche is the black striped with silver.):

    I paid $70 for my Rive Gauche and thought that was fine.

    For Toronto Basenoters, there's a great clearance section at the Winners in Yorkville (I advise Canadian basenoters anywhere to check out the clearance section at their local Winners, there's usually a hidden gem or two). I was there today and just a few examples I stopped to look at (there was a whole section of them on the 2nd floor by the purses, they're kind of hidden away but trust me, just look for the purses and you'll find them) were:

    Sira Des Indes giftsets: $38.99
    La Perla Creation giftsets: $38.99
    Clarins Par Amour Toujour giftsets: $29.99
    Arpege Pour Homme giftsets: $19.99
    Nautica My Voyage for Her giftsets: $13 (I almost bought it blind for the price alone because the set was huge, it came with soaps, lotions, a travel bag and a 50 ml bottle)
    Herve Rose Leger 50 mls: $15
    Valentino V Absolu: 30 mls: $29.99 (not on clearance, but still a pretty good price)

    Plus plenty of others, like I said, there was a whole wall of them. I managed to resist since I already had a coat on hold and funds are pretty tight as it is this paycheque. Perhaps my rare moment of strength will be your latest moment of weakness, there's lots of bargains to be had!

    Happy shopping!

    Spotted at Winners :

    Thierry Mugler Angel Eau de Star $28
    Azzaro Visit (Women) $18
    Elizabeth Arden Giftsets


    These are just some notables. Of course, they have David Beckham and Britney Spears bottles as well, but I consider these to be just 'dime a dozen' cheapo's and not really important.

    I can't seem to find anything decent at my local Winners. After Christmas they had a couple of Bulgari PH and Aquas in stock for $30 before tax but at that price I can get it cheaper online after shipping. I'll keep my eye out for any surprises though.

    Winners is pretty crappy right now, yeah.

    Heads up on Superstore who has some great deals on right now:

    Two (TWO) 30ml bottles of Quorum for $15! FIFTEEN DOLLARS.
    Two Azzaro pH 30ml bottles for $30.
    LOLITA LEMPICKA au masculin, 50ml, for $28.88!

    And Surfacing pointed out to me earlier than Opium pour Homme EDT by YSL is $40 for two 50mls. This is a fantastic deal as well.

    They've also got Eternity, CK One, and Obsession in 15ml minis for $15. I'm tempted to get one.

    I've seen them at two Shoppers Drug Marts. I got the tip from Surfacing, who saw it in the flyer. They have 60ml and 100mls.

    I assume they're at the Bay and Sears right now, if not incredibly soon.

    Crap crap crap crap crap.

    I blew all my Optimum points on Allure Sport last weekend. If only I waited a bit longer.

    I think I need to avoid Shopper's now. If I try it I may want to buy it and right now I can't afford to spend $60 bucks for another bottle.

    I did some department and drugstore browsing recently, here's the good, bad and ugly of it all :

    Sears : Rive Gauche pour homme and Obsession Night Men are both discounted and placed in the menswear department. Both are $24.99 for the larger bottles.

    Winners : I really wish they would have better stuff, but since I rarely go shopping, I may just be too late for the good stuff. Anyways, they had the usual Beckham releases for under $30. As well, Ungaro Apparition Homme was for under $20. The only thing that caught my attention was the heavily discounted Zirh Shaving kit, which I passed on. They also had Michael Kors for Men.

    Superstore ( Loblaws) :
    The selection now just pales in comparison to last year at this time. I wanted Bulgari Black, but the 40 ml is now $44.99. Last year the 50ml was $34.99 regular price, as was Aqua and Burberry London ( now $64.99 for 50 ml). Weird and upsetting. Over half the selection is reduced and most of everything is behind the glass.

    The SA there said the best time was to come at Christmas, so I'll have to try then. Unless they get more for Fathers Day.

    Zellers: They had Red by Giogio ( good price, but can't remember the $), Ed Hardy Men, Sean John Unforgivable ( 30ml), Nautica Blue, Nautica Competition, Jovan Musk ( kinda pricey for a cheapie), Tim Macgraw ( yee-haw!), 15 ml CK's like One and Obsession for $16, Drakkar Noir and a few other cheapies. Since it is all pretty much under $30, it makes it more digestible.

  34. #34

    Default Re: Canadian Department & Drugstore Deals Of The Week

    So I bought a bottle of Ed Hardy Love and Luck for roughly 80$ tax incl at Pharmaprix. They gave me an Optimum card preloaded with 25$ worth of points, so I got that off of my bottle of Dirty English. Good way of getting a couple of free frags in a year if you shop there a lot.

    And Rive Gauche is still 20$ at Wal-Mart.

    BTW, any Montrealers see anything at Winners? All I see is a butt-load of Britney Spears and other cheapo frags.

    If you want to play the optimum game wait until the 20x points days and rake in the points. Redeem the points on bonus redemption days to maximize value.

    Unfortunately they have been raising the minimum purchase lately so you need $75 before you qualify for the bonus points.

    Good luck!

    And Rive Gauche is still 20$ at Wal-Mart.

    BTW, any Montrealers see anything at Winners? All I see is a butt-load of Britney Spears and other cheapo frags.
    Rive Gauche at WalMart???? I must check that because the one in my area doesn't have it!

    I've never found anything nice at Winners, unfortunately. I think TJ Maxx and TK Maxx do a better job than us :-(

    I'm sure this is already well known but I got some great bargains on St Hubert street. There are a few perfume shops along that strip that carry some discontinued or more obsolete frags. I got a bottle of Grey Flannel for $15, for example. Minis available too!

    Yeah Wal-Mart. I was very surprised as well. And good find on the Grey Flannel. I havent tried it yet, so if I can pick up a bottle for 15$ I will finally test it.

    RL Polo EDT 59ml EDT + 59ml After Shave combo - 38.99 @ London Drugs

    They also have Drakkar Noir & RL Polo Sport 40ml (which I think is quite nice) for 19.99 at both London Drugs and Shoppers.

    Sephora :

    Shocked to find this, maybe I shouldn't be, but they have Lalique Encre Noire, Eau Sauvage, Dior Homme, Fahrenheit, Kenzo Power, Herrera Men and maybe I am missing something...but those caught my attention. The main Dept Stores don't even carry them. You have to pay full price, but at least you are not getting juice that may have "turned".

    Winners :

    Burberry Men Summer
    Gucci pour Homme 30 ml travel spray ( 26.99)
    Boss Selection


    Zellers :

    Giorgio : ReD ( 50 ml $19.99) and Beverly Hills ( 30ml $27.99). Not bad prices if they are your kinda frag.

    The Bay carries most of these too (at least here in Toronto).

    That is the exception, rather than the norm. I believe only a handful of The Bay shops carry those, along with other brand names in other departments. They have the same thing with Clothing and other departments. I guess you can chalk it up to certain stores being treated as more upscale. Many cities (most, infact) will not have a Bay that carries Eau Sauvage and the rest mentioned.

    Well, its a secret then.

    And it is not the greatest place to be "into" fragrances either. Selection/shopping wise, I mean. I envy people in the Toronto area ( ditto for Montreal, I think they have a few niche shops there).

    By the way, I saw Michael Jordan cologne at Winners today ( if anyone is interested )

    Does Walmart or Superstore still carry Rive Gauche for $19? I've been looking, but I've been unable to locate it all, let alone at a cheap price.

    If anyone knows of a specific Walmart in the Vancouver area that has it.. do tell!


    Edit: Got it!! Thanks nsamadi

    Honestly, usually there are "some" specials at Jean-Coutu every week, ditto for a couple of pharmacies, but there hasnt been anything worthwhile in about 1-2 months.

    Also havent seen anything new in dept stores around here lately.

    Superstore had a $10 off coupon if you made a fragrance purchase over $39.99 in a flyer recently. I think from last week. They also had a bunch of fragrances listed at $19.99 to 39.99 on discount.

    The booklet was small and white and was inside their normal larger flyer. Worth checking out at stores.

    Walmart had the small bottles of Mustang and Mustang Blue for $12 and $17 respectively.

    Shoppers Drug Mart was having a special on Polo Blue (), the new FCUK () , and Bulgari Aqua. These are all mens of course.

    Going past Winners as of late, they have bottles of Roberto Cavalli Just Cavalli Blue, Versace L'Homme, Romeo Gigli Uomo, Canali Summer Night ( very poor longevity on this one), Azzaro ONYX, and some other really hard to remember bottles. They always have a Beckham fragrance, I think it is usually called Night.

    Not a whole lot at Winners this time of the year. What I really look for is that bottle for under $30 to wear for my work rotation.

    Cool, thanks for the info. Its been a while since I have been there. They have certainly cut back on selection Thats okay, because the last time they had alot of selection I bought I bottle I now regret ( ) . I will check it out this weekend and thank you for the info. We have no flyers in our area so I cannot tell when they have a sale or not.

    As of a few weeks ago, I saw a bunch of 30-50ml frags like Cool Water, Polo Sport, etc for $20 at Shoppers. At least at the one on King just East of Spadina (Peter Street?)

    Edit - today I went to my local Walmart, and they had 125ml Rive Gauche PH for $25. I think I'll get one!

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    The one not in British Colombia , although ours always seems to have a couple of bottles around. Each Winners location seems to vary in my city for selection.

    If I am not mistaken, I am sure that Gucci pour Homme 30ml travel spray is $26.99. I am pretty sure that is the price, nsamadi.

    Hope you can track down a bottle
