how to spot a fake canada goose discount

1. Are You Still on the Same Domain?

If you clicked on a link, you should still be on the same site after the page loads. If you’ve been sent to a different domain selling cheap jackets, it’s probably a scam website. 

2. Check the Authorized Online Dealer Section

If you’re still not sure, most official websites for luxury brands will have a section showcasing authorized retailers. For example, Altitude-sports.com is on Canada Goose’s authorized online retailer list, but CheapCG2020.info (I made that site up) isn’t.

3. Spelling Mistakes Everywhere

No legitimate website would have “Lorem Ipsum” in their copy or blatant misspelling or capitalization errors. If the website’s copy doesn’t make sense, you’re probably going to get scammed hunting for Canada Goose Friday sales.

If you follow these three tips, you will not be fooled by 99% of fake luxury brand outlets websites.

why canada goose never goes on sale

Truth be told, it’s resources. Canada Goose parkas are all made in Canada with premium down and coyote fur from certified Canadian trappers. Due to the limited resources and manpower, Canada Goose never ends up creating enough supply to satisfy the growing demand for their products. (We took a deeper dive into the subject here.)

That’s why you won’t be finding discounted Canada Goose anytime soon. Be wary of any retailer offering them at a discount or a new site that pops up as some sort of Canada Goose Black Friday special site.

In the winter down jacket game, there are other choices as well. Canadian companies like Nobis, Mackage, Arc’teryx, Quartz Co., Kanuk, Vallier and SOIA & KYO cater to different tastes and needs, from high alpine adventuring to lightweight autumnal urban.

You can check out how Kanuk does business, how Quartz Co. handled the COVID-19 pandemic, and Black Friday deals on Arc’teryx.

Be on the lookout for some of these brands to be discounted during Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals. 

conclusion

You can’t go wrong with paying full price for outerwear produced by any Canadian premium outerwear brand, and Canada Goose is the first one that comes to mind. They’ve supplied Hollywood stars, Arctic research programs, and everyone in between. Their winter coats will keep you warm for years and I doubt they will be going out of style anytime soon.
