They must have gotten hip to that little trick right after Jedsend-diet did it.  They will only let you apply one coupon code now, so be sure to apply the one that works out best for your size order.

So sad  :(  

Oh well...maybe we'll find some other loophole!

Are you talking about the 3 free samples that you have to ask for when your order is over $49, or the free bags of "Double Bites" that you get when your order is over $79?  If either of those offers has gone away I need to know it so I can update the information.  

Regarding the GST, etc., I'm guessing this is a random thing -- you get lucky or you don't -- depending on who's handling it when it comes across.  So far you're the first person to post that they've had to pay any tax/duty.  Maybe not your week to play the lottery.   ???

Brian, when I  read my invoice I noticed it said you can request 3 free samples, which I did not do ( I assumed as my order was over $79 I'd get them. I'll try and find my invoice and see what the breakdown is,FYI I has a piece of the choc chip cookie.......not very good !!!  I did not  get any free samples, in fact I ordered the double bites and paid for them

I rec'd my order on Friday - 9 days from order date.  No extra fees to be paid.  Delivery was written as around $27 on mine - I'll always make sure I never have to pay that (by keeping my order over $79)!

No free bags of Double Bites.  I did get three free samples though that I requested by email after I had put my order through (order over $49) - I had forgotten to write it in the special instructions at the time of ordering so thought I would try my luck and email them.  I never got an email back, but my 3 free samples were in the box :)

I received my order this evening - 2 1/2 weeks after it was placed.  I just wanted to let everyone know that I had to pay Canada Post $16.25 on an order value of $80.33.  It said $0.00 under the 'duty' section but $4.82 gst + $6.43 pst + $5.00 handling fee.  I did get the 3 free samples that I requested.  In fact, they sent me an entire box of the hot cocoa instead of just one sample package.  I wish that I hadn't already eaten my proteins for the day - I can hardly wait to try everything!

Are the ProtiDiet Shakes the same as the ones at the clinic?

Anyone tried the cocoa? I've had the hot chocolate from the clinic - satisfying.

Thanks!
Tamara

The shakes they sell at Dietdirect.com are not the same....they  taste like the puddings but not as thick and are good. For maintainers, they are especially good to keep in the car (it is powder in a bottle) because if caught out for a long time and need something to eat you just add water (from that trusty bottled water we always have with us) , shake and drink.  Very clever.....and also fewer calories and carbs than the bars.   I believe the puddings, chicken soup and for sure the bars are the same....all made by Prodiet which is a Montreal company.

Just a heads up that the "free double bites" promotion has ended and was replaced with a "free box of WonderSlim cereal with orders over $99" promotion.  I called them today because I'm placing an order and wanted to know what to expect.  Apparently that particular special deal changes periodically whereas the free samples and free shipping deals are always the same.

I'll be getting a box of the free WonderSlim cereal since my order will be over $99, so I'll let you all [maintainers] know how it is.

Regarding the shakes, Ada is right, they are not the same as the RTD that the clinic sells.  I haven't tried them yet, but for maintainers, they sound like they may be a clever way to keep a shake around.

See this post for products known to be the same as what the clinic sells.
