[Shop.ca] Auto Parts W/FS + CashBack/Promo Codes

I realize this isn't technically a specific Hot Deal, but it is hopefully of use to someone if they weren't aware of it. You can actually get new auto parts at good prices at shop.ca with free shipping and use all of the combined offers there to minimize the cost. For those unfamiliar with shop.ca, you can often get cashback from Ebates, Great Canadian Rebates, or Shop.com of 3.5 - 15%, sometimes as high as 20%. Currently low at 7-8%. There are often promo codes for $10 off $40(SHOPRMN1040), $10 off $100 almost always, $15 off $100 and $15 off $30 or $30 off $100 occasionally. There are also periodically Pay Pal promos that give $25 off a $75 order. Much of it can often be combined. There are also Aeroplan offers there that give 15 times the Aeroplan miles on first purchases after adding an Aeroplan card to a shop.ca account. There is also $25 in credits paid for referring someone to shop that orders over $75. This is also good for filler items on other orders to meet promo thresholds, things like wipers, air/oil filters work well.

Prices on parts are variable, and selection obviously depends on make and model, they don't have everything, but prices for mine were very competitive on a bunch of items before all this. Brake parts, wipers, radiators, struts, OS sensors were very well priced, before the discounts/coupons, with them, it is a slam dunk imo, with free shipping. It is not so obvious from the above page how to order this way, so here is the link to the provider (Prime choice), I just looked up the available parts for my car there and searched on shop.ca for the part number and added it to the cart. That simple. Delivery time was decent.

Some decently priced items for my truck. I'll keep it in mind next maintenance run. Cheers

St-Fabien de Panet, …
Last time I bought parts from shop.ca ebates told me there was no cashback for auto parts. Also be advised that most if not all of their parts are made in China. I bought brake parts and they seem to be Ok.

Thanks for that info. I'll have to check cashback on my order. I think I used GCR this time and I think it went through though.

Edit: I did get cashback from GCR on mine. I don't see an exclusion on Ebates for auto parts on shop.ca, so you might argue it, if it is an amount worth the bother.

"NOTE: Cash Back is not available on Video Game Consoles, Video Games, Video Game Accessories, Gas Cards, Gift Cards, Gift Certificates or any eGift Card purchases at this time."

Keep in mind SHOP.CA's poor reputation.

It is definitely a consideration. I have heard a lot of horror stories about them too, but my personal experience is 100%. I have placed 5 orders from them this year, most with a full mix of cashback, promos, points and sometimes PayPal deals, and have gotten four of them quickly without issue, and one that was a bit slow at fourteen days for delivery, but was OK otherwise. They were all great deals when all the offers were combined, way better than I could get elsewhere at the time. The auto part arrived in 3 days.

I've only ever had one issue with them (that is currently being worked on) and their support is very quick to get back to me (less than a day over e-mail). The CEO (or someone writing e-mails for him) even e-mailed me to apologize for the delay after I brought it to support's attention.

Having a conciliatory Email from the CEO is a major improvement from the stories of ignored Emails, and unresponsive phone support in the past. I get the feeling that they are trying to turn around that bad rep that they have out there.

Different for everyone. I had a BIG issue and never got a single apology from any of the CSR's or senior members. Just be wary of them.

I would imagine that the bulk of these "big issues" were people taking "advantage" of the shop.ca promos if you know what i mean. Scam the system a little bit and get all whiny when they didn't get away with it. I have had nothing but great experiences with this store, and have had my legitimate concerns taken care of extremely quickly.

Do you work for them or something? Obviously your message is directed to me and others who had "big issues". No I did not take advantage of promos it was something else which I won't mention.

Nope, I do not work for them, I am just a satisfied customer who hate it when a couple of you come into every shop.ca thread and complain about your lost promotional money. Clearly if you don't want to mention how they "cheated" you, it's because you were taking advantage of their startup promos.

Limited selection for me. I need oem parts for a ford guess working in the field wears stuff out. Always feel like parts at the dealer are 40% marked up but have yet to find a supplier.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

I have a Hyundai and not a common model, so selection is not too wide for me either, but the things that are available are pretty well priced, before promos, rebates etc.

ive bought from prime choice on ebay a few times and then directly from there site.Out of 5 orders 1 had issue with wrong rotors sent.

After 3 months the complete struts i bought from them started having issues and they didnt want to do anything for me.
Bought break pads from them also and they were pretty good for the price.

What was the issue? It would help put some context to your warnings... sounds like you got screwed big time...never received an order or something?

I guess that's me :D well sort of... I wouldn't say I scammed anybody... just stacked some promos they were giving out and got some awesome deals.. I did wonder how shop.ca was making any money back then (Oct-Dec 2013), but alas those days are over :( but like you I am a satisfied customer who had some great experiences with shop.ca... even purchased some stuff recently with the paypal promo
