For those having difficulties... you can still use discount code "TURKEY" for 15% off in the Macey's shopping bag. Then when you proceed to checkout, you will be redirected to the fiftyone payment page. Scroll down to the credit card section to enter promo code MC51 (order has to be over $99 to qualify). After you enter the code, you will see the "duties/taxes" line change with the duty-free discount. Sales tax (13%) still applies tho. Shipping is free over $99

Just called macys to cancel my order cause i ordered the wrong size. What im worried about is the correct refund. She only saw the USD price which was 99.99 USD and $6 taxes. What I paid was 114.95 CAD plus $16 taxes. My total was 131 CAD...

Why do I have a feeling im going to only get back 106 USD, and then after credit card conversion, ill probably get $100...
Your feeling is correct. It's better to pay by USD-denominated credit card in your case, so you are not screwed on double exchange in case of return.
Still, you should get those canadian taxes back, so somewhere near CAD$120 in total.

Regarding online shopping at Macy's in general: I would not recommend it, especially for Canadians. Return will be a hassle, prices are always lower in-store and you can actually try it on. Go there on weekend, sign up for their credit card, and they will give you 20% off anything. More, they will mail you coupons with even better deals, like $20 off $50.

Well there are no stores in Canada so its not as simple as going to the store. Yes of course it is much cheaper to do shopping in the US but taking time off to go there and staying a couple nights for tax exemptions also cost money.

So, I had an online chat with Macy's before placing my order as the MC51 was not working. The rep told me to go ahead with my order and she will make adjustments if the duties are not taken off. SO I did, and still being charged duties. She promised to have the duties credited. However, I have been charged duties and when I wrote Macy's (they dont have a number you can call!), no one responds. So I did a live chat again, explained everything and was told the original rep will write me an email in 30 minutes. Nothing. So I wrote to macys.com customer service and was told there 'is no code such as MC51' and the rep I chatted with denies having told me a credit would be issued! Whoa!

Did both the MC51 AND a 20% discount code work for anyone? I mean did anyone get the 20% on top of free shipping and no duties? Please let me know as I need to straighten this out with them, so that they dont play games with Canadian shoppers in the future. Thanks.
