Your Order is FREE if it Snows!*
Full Terms & Conditions for 2024
Can a snowstorm strike the same place twice? We certainly hope so.
Welcome to our 7th annual Your Order is FREE if it Snows promotion. In case you missed the incredible news or are a fairly recent email subscriber, on February 14th, 2022, we received 25.8 cm of newly fallen snow at the Charlottetown Airport which was more than enough to beat the minimum requirement of the 17.7 cm of newly fallen snow that we were hoping for on that day. As a result, everyone who made a qualifying purchase received a FULL REFUND of their qualifying purchase. This was the first time we had ever been through this experience of refunding everyone their money (after we first received all of the money from the insurance company of course!) and it was an incredible feeling for us.
So, let's try it again!
In case you are not familiar these types of promotions, we have seen other retailers in Canada and the US in particular do similar weather related promotions, sometimes for the entire purchase price of a new car (but soap can be nice too!), and it seemed like it could be a lot of fun for everyone so we decided to try it!
You don't have to do anything extra to have a chance to win. Just make a purchase with us as you normally would (either online, by phone, or in-store) between January 19th, 2024, 12:01 a.m. AST and February 7th, 2024, 11:59 p.m. AST for any amount between $60 and $600 (including applicable tax and shipping). If we receive 17.7 cm (which is a bit less than 7 inches) or more of newly fallen snow as recorded by ATHENIUM ANALYTICS LLC on February 14th, 2024 (Valentine's Day) from 12:01 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. AST (24 Hours), we will simply refund your paid purchase amount back to you in full.
IMPORTANT: During the first 3 snowfall promotions that we ran in 2018, 2019, and 2020, the Government Weather Station at the Charlottetown Airport, Prince Edward Island, with NavCan as the station operator, has been used as the official recorder for the newly fallen snow amount. Unfortunately, we did not use their numbers in 2021, 2022, and 2023 and will not be able to use their numbers in 2024 as our insurance provider had confirmed that many stations operated across Canada by NavCan experienced an error affecting data from late November to early December 2020. In order to prevent insurance issues resulting from a similar problem occurring on February 14th, 2024, this year the newly fallen snow amount will be provided exclusively by ATHENIUM ANALYTICS LLC. ATHENIUM ANALYTICS LLC provides location-specific measurements by implementing the latest methods and tools in weather technology reporting. The ATHENIUM ANALYTICS LLC staff of meteorologists has immediate access to weather observations that are taken at least hourly, and often more frequently, throughout the world.
If ATHENIUM ANALYTICS LLC reports that we received 17.7 cm or more of newly fallen snow in the general area of the Charlottetown Airport, Prince Edward Island, on February 14th, 2024 (Valentine's Day) from 12:01 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. AST (24 Hours), we will simply refund your paid purchase amount back to you in full.
