If the U.S. dollar and the Cdn. dollar are *almost* on "par" and have been for quite a while now, what explains this huge price discrepancy between Amazon.com and Amazon.ca?
Hold onto your hats...
If I were to buy my girls this much lusted after DVD set from Amazon.ca, after shipping ($1.99 even though they say "free") & taxes, i'm going to pay $81.34 in total. Let's take a moment to think about this shall we... Amazon is trying to tell me that our consumer goods cost more than TWICE as much as they do in the U.S!? Really!!?? Un-be-lievable!!! I know our food & health and beauty items cost a good bit more, as i've been through this before, but i'm sorry, no wonder so many of my friends close to the border decide to border hop and save some of their hard earned dollars rather than spending local! Geez...
Lucky for me, I have American friends. ;)
How do you feel about our US vs. Cdn. prices?
Are there any HUGE price differences you've noticed?
Do you cross-border shop?
