[Sears] [Sears.ca][DEAD?] Alpinetek Big Girl's (KIDS) Down Parka With Hood - $49.99 becomes 29.96 when added to cart

As titled, Sears Big Girl's Alpinetek Parka are on sale for $49.99, but when added to cart, it shows $29.96. Pick up at selected locations for free shipping.

http://www.sears.ca/en/girls-coats-jack ... 749_I.html

Right now they still have Crimson and Fuschia in Large. Refer to numerous previous threads, their sizes are quite big. For reference, I'm 5'3, 112 lbs, and I can fit into a Big Girl's L. Big Boy's XL is too big (around shoulders), L is nice and roomy.

Big Boys are on sale as well for $50, but no extra discount when added to cart.

Update: Post #11 scotsum: Big Boys are on sale as well $29.96 when added to cart!

Edit: Ebates is 4% today , but 3% for apparel, thanks scotsum.

Here are some measurements I took:

Big girls parka Large
Shoulder to shoulder 16"
Sleeve length not including the ribs 24"
Chest (from underarm to underarm) 19"
Length 28"

Big boy parka XL
Shoulder to shoulder 17.5"
Sleeve 24.5"
Underarm to underarm 21"
Length 30"

Big boy bomber Large
Shoulder to shoulder 16.5"
Sleeve 24"
Underarm to underarm 20"
Length 22.5"

All measurements taken when jackets are lay flat, zipped up. Just approximate measurements for quick reference.

Seems like quality is subpar. Link to boys version (http://www.sears.ca/en/jackets-outerwea ... _outerwear)
I've been wearing the Big Boy's L since mid Dec, and so far so good. Zippers still intact and running smooth. Guess kids are rough and it doesn't withstand it. But with proper care and usage it's good.

Thanks OP. I ordered two for my kids for next year. Hopefully they are decent quality. I had been waiting for these to go drop further in price so I am very grateful.

Wow that was fast. Was debating which color to get but Fuschia went out of stock. Ordered Crimson instead. Thanks OP. Will just gift it if my daughter ends up not liking it.

FYA only Crimson size M or L left.

Totally forgot ebates :facepalm:

No, but you can have the store mail it out for you to the distibution center and then you'll wait min 4 weeks before getting a refund.

There are horror stories about Sears' awful return and refund process... Unfortunately they are all true D:

However, Sears facebook created a customer service page for any inquiries:

https://www.facebook.com/SearsCanada/ap ... e_internal

I had two issues and my questions were answered and resolved the next day. My latest issue: I bought two Heritage pans and one of them the handle was shattered (because they just threw the pans in the box WITHOUT packing material). I used the form and I got an RMA on the same day. I brought the pan to the store and they knew without me having to explain anything to them. ALTHOUGH I didn't get my credit yet. They got my pan and it will take 7-10 days for the refund. I guess if I don't see it then I will use the form again.

So yes, free in-store returns, but you won't get your refund right away; but if you don't see it after 10 days, use the form.

You are right, it does not have side pocket (Big Girl's version).

They are children's, but they are bigger so those who are petite will fit. In Ontario you'll save 8% tax as well.

Update: Hey! In Ontario only pays 5% for children's clothes. Check your invoice. They charged a full 13%. For $1.50 I don't know if I want to go through Sears' refund process @_@ but for those who bought more should look into that.

the boy's version has the dual side pockets just like men's.

my buddy has the 2015 version & I got this years (2016) parka & our zippers are slightly different. imo, sears fixed the zipper issue on the 2016 parka. the boy's version looks identical to the men's so its very possible the zipper's fixed as well.
