Actually, Sony was the one who made the price cuts.

I know they made the price cuts but Future Shop kept it the same and the ps3 was always more expensive in Canada than in the US.

That's because of our currency differences. Now our dollar is worth more than the US dollar. That's why Sony made the price cuts and applied it to Canadian retailers too as well. Future Shop has no control over the prices for these products.

Doing business in the "Great" State of Canada isn't cheap.

I've ordered at least a couple dozen times from Amazon and never had to pay any duty or taxes either (shipped to Southern Ontario). Amazon gets around the duty and taxes by filling your orders from their US distro centers but then shipping your package internally as a STO (Stock Transfer Order) to their Amazon.ca distro center located in Mississauga Ontario. Once there, they ship it to you via Canada Post thus bypassing customs and the taxes and fees associated with them.

IMPORTANT: THIS ONLY WORKS IF YOU CHOOSE STANDARD SHIPPING!

If you choose anything quicker, Amazon will ship via a courier straight from one of their US facilities and then you run the risk of being taxed.

Sounds like a pretty good explanation to me. Thanks a lot.

Ya - amazon.com definitely repackages the stuff canadians orders to get around duty. I order from them sometimes specifically for that reason.

I scanned through looking and didn't see anyone mention deepdiscount.com

They have the best deal on shipping for canadians I've ever seen and often have great sales and often the cheapest price too. It's $5.95 shipping to canada per order. It doesn't matter how much or how little you order. Just one flat $5.95 fee

They also ship things as they become available automatically without any extra charge (which is a great way to avoid duty). If you order things you know are currently out of stock or preorders along with your regular order you can generally keep the price per actual shipment low enough to avoid duty and still only have to pay the one $5.95 shipping fee.

The orders ship USPS too so not brokerage fees. If there is duty it's just the tax + the $5.00 handling fee.

Besides, Amazon.ca don't re-package Amazon.com orders. At least I don't believe they do. Their packaging designs are very different from Amazon.ca's.

Not anymore, they increased the shipping fee to almost $8 for the first item. DVDPacific.com offer better shipping fees. Right now with the currency rate, it's around $3.90 to $3.95 for the first item then approx. $1 extra per item while it would cost you nearly $11 just to ship two items from Amazon.com.

I think you might have misread my post. I was referring to shipping on deepdiscount.com only being $5.95 per order not on amazon.


I will definitely keep dvdpacific.com in mind next time I want to make a small order though as those are some decent shipping rates too

Has this changed recently? It used to be $250
