Always wanted to shop online from the States but the potential for massive duties put the kibosh on your order? Right now, PayPal has a very good promotion where you can save the duties on purchases from select U.S. retailers. To get in on the deal, you'll need to add items to your cart, check out using PayPal and apply the coupon code DUTYFREE before submitting. Really, that's all there is to it! The list of merchants includes:

Again, you'll want to double check your order before finalizing it to make sure you're not paying any more than you should be. Also, shipping is NOT free so you'll want to take that into consideration when placing your order as well.

The promotion ends on April 3.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the bevy of PayPal deals in the Hot Deals Forum.

      I've listed them in the OP. Seems like some deals can be had over at Sears, Saks, Macy's and a few others. Too bad there are no purveyors of electronics/gadgets besides Sears.

      EDIT: Now I see your point -- FiftyOne merchants

      Question: Does that mean we can order from the US Macy's? (No CK suits when browsing CDN) In fact, how does that work? CDN shopping already includes duty in the total.

      Nevermind, I see restrictions that might be deal stoppers.

    • Let me get this straight. It's only from a select number of vendors? And won't you still have to pay provincial sales tax anyway?

      Why no amazon?

    • I wonder how this works and how PayPal is going to waive the duties. Usually the duties are paid when the item arrives at your door. In addition, if the item ships via UPS then it is usually accompanied with brokerage fees. How will PayPal deal with the brokerage fees?

      Many of these US merchants usually already know the brokerage fees.

      The stores that are listed shows the duties at the final checkout, therefore you'll never have to pay duties at the door.
