Starting on July 1st, you will pay less for feminine hygiene products as the government announced that they will be exempting goods and services tax (GST) and harmonized sales tax (HST) on “a supply of a product that is marketed exclusively for feminine hygiene purposes and is a sanitary napkin, tampon, sanitary belt, menstrual cup or other similar product.”
There has been a lot of pressure on the government to remove the tax on feminine hygiene products but considering they made $36,398,387 in taxes on feminine hygiene products last year, they have been slow to make any changes. Several provinces still charge the provincial portion of the tax on these products and have not yet announced any changes to the tax.

Back in November, Amazon.ca decided they were going to begin offering same-day delivery in select cities and on select products. This service, while convenient, was going to run a rather high price tag, with it costing $5.99 flat-fee for Amazon Prime members and a whopping $9.98 for non-members, with each additional item in your order costing an extra $0.99. Amazon.ca has changed their terms for same-day shipping, and are now offering Amazon Prime members, who spend $35 or more on their order, free same-day delivery.
The same shipping fee will be in place for Amazon Prime members who spend below $35, but with there now being 20 million different items qualifying for same-day delivery service I’m sure you won’t have a hard time finding some extra filler items to bump you over that $35 minimum.
Your order will have to be placed before 12pm on the day that you wish to have it delivered, and so far the only Canadian cities that offer this service are Toronto and Vancouver.
Here is the official SmartCanucks coupon match up list for the week of May the 29th to June the 4th. A huge thank you goes out to our members who post flyers for us as soon as they get their hands on them. As always there are plenty of great deals with coupons across the country this week so make sure to check out our list before you head out shopping. You wouldn’t want to miss anything! If you spot a great deal that isn’t on our list, feel free to add it to the list, or just let us know!
There is something so idyllic about having a peaceful place to sit at the end of the day, preferably in a natural setting, and process the events of the day in a calm silence. Of course, to do this sort of meditative practise you would need a comfortable seating arrangement, such as this Home Trends Rockhampton Bench that Walmart Canada is currently selling.
The bench, which measures wide enough for two individuals to relax on and soak up the last rays of sunshine (45.67″ x 26.18″ x 34.06 “), is on sale right now for just $100, though before it was being sold for $158.
If the bench isn’t quite enough to satisfy your outdoor living fantasy, then you may also be interested in this 4-piece conversation set from the same Home Trends Rockhampton collection. The 4-piece conversation set is only $100 more than the bench, only $200 (was $548), but it will include all of these furnishings:
1 Double Chair, measures: 28.74″ x 48.82″ x 34.45″
2 Chairs, measures: 28.74″ x 26.57″ x 34.45″ H
and 1 Coffee Table, measures: 38.78″ x 20.87″ x 18.50″
You could get both of the Home Trends Rockhampton collections, the conversation set and the bench, and you would still be paying $248 less than what the 4-piece conversation set was being sold for originally.
Walmart offers free-shipping on all orders that are more than $50.
Within Lowe’s Canada’s flyer for this week, they began advertising for what they’re calling the buy more, save more event, where you will be able to save up to 20% off on major appliances – should you buy the qualifying number of appliances. The breakdown of the discounts on the major appliances is as follows:
buy 1 major appliance, save 10%
buy 2 major appliances, save 15%
or buy 3 major appliances, save 20%
In addition to having this buy more, save more event, Lowe’s is also selling off select appliances at special prices, that can be stacked with the buy more, save more offer. For instance, you can purchase an Amazon 4.8 cu. ft. front-load washer for just $758 and an accompanying 7.4 cu. ft. front load dryer for just $548, for a total of $1,296. Since you will be getting two qualifying major appliances, you will then be able to save an extra 15% off this special price, meaning you’ll only have to pay $1,101.60.
Lowe’s will be running the buy more, save more event until June 3rd.
This week, beginning on Saturday, May 30th, Shoppers Drug Mart Canada will be selling International Delight (473mL) bottles at 2 for $3. By itself, this is an okay deal, but what makes it an even better deal is when you combine it with the SmartSource.ca coupon for $1.50 off on any International Delights product.
By stacking two of these SmartSource coupons with the Shoppers Drug Mart sale, you will be able to grab two bottles of International Delight for free.
The sale at Shoppers Drug Mart will be available until June 5th.
Sears Days is back at Sears Canada for the next week, which will feature the lowest prices of the season on everything from men’s and women’s apparel to major appliances. Sears Days happens a couple of times a year and each time it comes to pass, I still seem to find myself floored by their shockingly low prices. And while this seasonal Sears Days will be running until June 7th, I’d be sure to double check some of the items as their discounted prices may not be around for quite as long.
If you’re looking for a comfortable pair of walking shoes for the summer, then shopping within the Sears Days footwear sale may be a good idea for you. Within this sale, Sears is selling select pairs of sandals and shoes for up to 60% off the original price, though most of these shoes that are this discounted rate are for comfort rather than style. For instance, these Foamtrends ‘Angy’ Leather sandals are currently on sale for just $35.99 (regularly $79.99). The shoes, though they are no espadrille or stiletto, are cushioned with memory foam in the heel, which means that you can wear them all summer long without the worry of growing any extra blisters or sores!
There are a number of other sales going on for the next week within the bed and bath departments, on outdoor living, kitchen and furniture, but remember to check the fine print on each sale’s expiry date, as they will vary by product.
Sears offers free-shipping on all orders of $99 or more.
Need an afternoon caffeine boost? Do you also reside in Ontario? If you answered with an enthusiastic ‘yes’ to both of these questions, then you will want to grab your cellphone and get ready to text the word ‘blonde‘ to this number: 81818. Starbucks Canada is offering those of you who live in Ontario the chance to pick up a free tall blonde roast coffee, should you text that number.
This offer is only available for a limited time, expiring on Sunday, May 31st, and you will only be allowed to receive one free tall roast per cellphone number.
Suzy Shier Canada will be opening up their 40% off sale on regular priced merchandise to retail locations starting tonight from 5pm-9pm, but for those of you who do your shopping online, you can sneak in ahead of everyone else and take advantage the sale from now until 11:59pm EST.
You will not need to use any promo code to receive the 40% discount, though the prices shown on the website do not reflect the sale price. To receive the 40% off, you will have to add your desired, regularly priced, items to your cart and once you have done this, Suzy Shier will automatically discount your item. When I first spotted this Variegated striped maxi dress online, it was advertised as being sold for $36. After adding it to my cart, however, the price was immediately dropped to being just $21.60.
This sale also includes plus size clothing, and remember that Suzy Shier offers free-shipping on all orders of $100 or more.

The selection for each store may vary, so be sure to ask prior to purchasing your Signature Collection fine mist fragrance if it is part of the promotion.
