[Chapters Indigo] Chapters Indigo "Plum Plus" 12 mo membership - inc. unlim free shipping no minimum, 10% off sitewide - $39.99 + $20 off

A bit of an unconventional deal, but with Christmas coming up and the rise of eCommerce this year, seemed like a hot deal as Chapters Indigo has lots of cute knick-knacks that Amazon simply can't match.

Image

The "bonus offer" is what makes this hot right now - as 8,500 pts = a $20 off credit, which stacks with the 10% off sitewide you're now getting:

Image

Net cost of $19 for 12 months of unlimited free shipping no minimum, and 10% off site-wide. I know they will do free shipping no minimum campaigns intermittently, but not around Christmas/gift season. There is also an option to free ship to store, but $19 is worth it to be able to ship directly to friends/family, and not have to drive to the store for pickup.

Of course there are standard exclusions for the 10% off for all electronics (Chapters not price competitive there anyways), eBooks, and all "high end" brands - list can be found here if you're interested. Also exclusions on remote shipping and heavy/overweight packages.

Is this hot ? Been looking to use the Cobalt offer, but everything seems 5-15$ cheaper on Amazon. I’d love supporting local bookstores, but not @ 50% premium ...

Chapters is barely a local store, it's a giant chain

I've always wondered how Chapters/Indigo is still around against the likes of Amazon. The rent on their stores cannot be cheap. Do a lot of people really buy their pillows and other random household shit they sell?

We spend thousands on Indigo every year, mostly on books, toys, children clothes and board games. So this membership is worth it for me. Most of their promotion can be stacked on top of each other making their pricing really good on some items.
for instance, my wife got a really nice notebook and pen pair for 5 dallors. They make really good Christmas gifts for school teachers.

I'm in, just to support Canadian business vs Amazon. I give Amazon enough of my money as is.

Some books are same price at Amazon, I always order from Chapters. Rather support Chapters than Amazon.

Wow. A sad attempt to battle Prime. They are going to lose.
I do not need approval, I do not need friends. I do what I want.

Hundreds I could understand, but... Thousands? But but but... how is that possible? Books are free at the library and cheap Chinese-made tat is easily avoided. There are so many better ways to divert those thousands! I mean, to each his own but this seriously makes me feel like crying! Loudly Crying FaceLoudly Crying FaceLoudly Crying Face

Was interested in board games but even with free shipping and sales/10% off their prices are higher than 401games stuff shipped for a fee. So I will pass.

It's the same thing as people spending thousands on shoes/bags/take out food. Some people like books, some people like to eat or wear fancy watches. I rather spend hundreds on books than hundreds on McDonalds. To each his own right.

This. I used to spend a lot on board games at Chapters until I discovered 401.
401 has really competitively priced items (even if you include shipping fee), fantastic inventory and availability that beats Amazon and Chapters.
