I'm super excited about this shop.chickadvisor thing you guys are doing. Unfortunately, I'm not a Cake fan and I don't know anyone who is. But I am really looking forward to your future promotions! :)

Thanks for the comments, Bubbly! on Apr 20, 2010 @ 11:20 pm

We chose Cake because they are popular here and their products are paraben free and 90-95% natural, which is something a lot of people are interested in. I also have a personal weakness for anything that smells like baked goods ;)

Any other feedback?

I thought $26 was a pretty sweet deal and so I looked up on it. As I was justtt going to check out...the price went from $26 to almost $40. Who knew shipping was so so expensive :(

Tax and shipping on Apr 24, 2010 @ 11:18 am

Thanks Asiangoddess! You're right taxes and shipping are a pain. We had a hard time figuring out how to price this because you can't avoid taxes and the true cost of shipping is packaging, labour (the people who put the orders together) and postage. In this case are actually charging everyone less for shipping than it is costing us. Packages going to BC for example will cost us about $15. Shipping in Canada is so expensive. However it's still cheaper:

Price in Store

Products: $52
Tax: $6.76
Total: $58.76

Price on Shop ChickAdvisor

Products: $26
Tax: $3.38
Shipping (Ontario): $9.90
Total: $39.28

Savings: $19.48

I think that's still worth it, no?

I'm curious, would it be better if we included the tax and shipping in the price and said instead of saving 50%, save 30%, etc? So you are still paying the same amount but the price includes everything?

I'd love to hear what you guys think about that as we could do it that way too.


include it on Apr 24, 2010 @ 12:15 pm

I think $20 savings on the Cake product is worth it.

I personally prefer including everything in the price because then I know how much it's costing me right from the get-go. I don't like making a decision on buying something, getting excited over it and then find out with S&H;, it actually costs twice as much as I thought.

Having said that, I know some ppl would like to know where their money is going to. Also, S&H;is hard to include in the prices unless it's uniform regardless of destination.

good idea on Apr 24, 2010 @ 06:23 pm

I agree on what bubblybunny said. Getting excited then finding out how much shipping costs just makes you rethink. Also, it's true, it's hard to include prices unless it's uniform. Maybe just adding taxes into the price would make it less surprising when the S&H;is added on. It's sort of like low-balling, but at least the total is about $10 from the stated price rather than (in this case) $13.

We're updating the sale on Apr 26, 2010 @ 10:44 am

Thanks so much you guys for sharing your thoughts on this. We are changing the sale to 30% off but it will include taxes and all shipping so what you see is what you pay. This is the first offer we've done like this so it always takes a little tweaking!

The new price for everyone - including those of you living in Nunavit - is:
$41.13 All in.

Sale ends May 3. Want one?
