Keep reading for the top tips for shopping at Victoria’s Secret and PINK in Canada.
When to Shop at Victoria’s Secret Vs. When to Shop at PINK
Looking to save a few extra bucks on your next bra purchase? We recommend shopping at PINK over Victoria’s Secret for lower priced undergarments that don’t compromise VS quality. While styles and fabrics will differ between stores, the support and durability are the same across all lines. When it comes shopping for other product categories, we recommend shopping at PINK for casual apparel and swimwear, while Victoria’ Secret is great for lingerie and workout apparel.
Shop Fridays for Savings
Fridays are the day to save at Victoria’s Secret and PINK stores. If you have plans to splurge on a bra or some swimwear, subscribe to Victoria’s Secret and PINK emails for information on upcoming sales promotions. Friday is typically the day that ‘BOGO ½ price’ and ‘Free Gift with Purchase’ sales go live in stores to entice crowds of weekend shoppers.
Bigger Discounts with PINK
Calling all students! PINK shoppers have an opportunity to score additional discounts if they are also members of the SPC program. SPC members save 10% off full price and clearance merchandise at PINK.
Victoria’s Secret Return Policy
Don’t love it? Return it! Victoria’s Secret offers a generous 90-day return policy on all items with an original receipt. This includes bras that you may have worn once or twice but the fit just wasn’t right.
Always Ask for a Bra Fitting
Be sure you get the right fit by taking advantage of the bra specialists at Victoria’s Secret. These VS staff are approachable, friendly and will teach you a thing or two about the correct fit for your body. Wearing the right size bra is key to saving money on future clothing purchases and alterations.
Make it Easier for Others to Shop For You at Victoria’s Secret
With every bra fitting, you’ll receive a bra card indicating your bra size, preferred style and matching panty size. While this card is great to keep with you for future shopping, it’s also handy to give to someone else who is likely to do some shopping for you. Pass your Victoria’s Secret bra card over to your significant other so that they aren’t embarrassed walking aimlessly through a store in search of the appropriately sized gift for you.
Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale
What we refer to as “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” is also known as the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale. This amazing sale happens twice a year in-store (in January and June,) and online (in December and May). During this sale, you’ll find amazing markdowns on the previous season’s items. With no end date to this sale, the best merchandise can be scooped up at the start of the sale and as the remaining inventory depletes, the markdowns will increase.
Price Adjustments at Victoria’s Secret
Anticipating those Semi-Annual Sale markdowns, always hold onto your Victoria’s Secret receipt for a price adjustment within 14 days of your purchase. The same policy applies to regular priced items marked down outside of the Semi-Annual Sale period.
Avoid Shopping Online at Victoria’s Secret
While the promotions and product selection online at Victoria’s Secret is far better than in-store, avoid shopping online at all costs! The insane exchange rate, shipping and duties make it excruciating for Canadian consumers to shop online at any of the limited brands sites like Victoria’s Secret, PINK or Bath & Body Works. Throw a few items into your online shopping cart and watch your total skyrocket once you populate Canadian shipping details.
