I have ordered over 40 packages from Amazon.com and not once have i been charged with duties of any sort. I have seen that some people have complained about it in the past, and those people were from the West Coast for the most part.

Amazon.ca is awful for preordering anything that is a 'popular' release, be it books or entertainment. Every time I have preordered something, the day it is suppose to come out I get an email saying it is delayed, and that it will take 1-2 months to arrive. I am currently in this case for a new book that came out last week.

Also, when its the games release date if you look at Amazon.ca it will most of the time say 'In Stock Soon. Get in Line, First come first serve'. If you ever see that then your screwed as well. Your best bet is to go to EB Games and get it there the day it comes out.

EB Games where I live always has the new games exactly when they come out, and they are always fair prices, so COD4 will be 59.99, and i cant wait to get it

Anybody ever get nailed by brokerage fees? Those can be 40% of the price. I like how U.S. customers ordering from Canada are allowed up to $400.00 while Canadians ordering from the U.S. are only allowed $20.00. Another cruel joke on Canadians. I've already complained to Amazon.ca and Bestbuy.ca and got form letters back, so obviously, their oblivious and don't give a shit!

The Blu-ray icon is right there on the front page, approximately 471 titles are listed. However, if you type in a certain title and if there's a Blu-ray edition, the icon will show up next to the name in the search results.

If you type only the term, "Blu-ray" in it then yes, you won't get a lot of results. That's why they have the Blu-ray Disc graphic on the front page for people to click upon.

Just in case you missed it the first time around... here's the link to the complete list of Blu-ray titles. All 471 of them.

Just because you're accustomed to typing in Blu-ray at Amazon doesn't mean it'll be the same everywhere else. Amazon.com recently increased their shipping fees. So that's why I'm buying some from DVDPacific.com instead. So far, I'm 100% satisfied with their services. Even if some of their titles are slightly higher than Amazon's prices, I still save money due to the lower shipping fees.

It's better to go with the national mail service instead of using services like UPS, FedEx and such services. It's cheaper and you'll be more likely to get by the system just fine.

I bought an Onkyo 605 from the US on Ebay and paid $50 shipping, $50 tax to the Canadian government , and $50 brokerage fee to UPS. The sad thing is the prices on our electronics are so out of whack compared to the States it was still a great deal.

No duties so far and I've ordered 8 shipments of blu-ray from amazon.com since the last week of september.

All my deliveries have come through the postal system. Amazon re-mails through their facilities in Ontario.

If you are ordering from other services and/or using a courier, you are likely to get dinged to duties and brokerage fees.

I'm not the west coast.

So far, it hasn't happened with DVDPacific.com and I've ordered from them on many occasions.

I have yet to see any duty charges and I've placed over a dozen order on Amazon.com. The way I understand it is that customs randomly selects packages to screen for duty charges. Now, since DVDs are not electronic by nature then they won't register as sharply on their radars when it passes through the x-ray machine. Also, it's such a small package that I'm sure they realize they can get far greater duty out of the larger boxes passing through so they pass on a few DVDs. Lastly, they probably don't even realize that they are HDM! Assuming that what they see in the X-ray are just DVDs, they probably think, "What's the point in charging this person duty on $50 worth of DVDs" when it is, in fact, worth $150 of Blu-ray.

if you can get items shipped USPS then you normally wont have to worry about duties, and no brokerage fees.

if you get UPS/Fedex they charge their own crazy amount of brokerage fees, + duties etc

I don't believe Amazon.com orders to Canada even cross the border. They are shipped from Mississauga, Ontario.

You know this for a fact?

So they are shipped from the US to Mississauga and then repackaged and sent by Expresspost to people in Canada? There is no customs or US information of any kind on the boxes I get and the return address is Mississauga.

Actually, it's 60$ that are allowed without any duties, but you have to pay for the tax, if they happened to open your package! I think it's happen only on 5 to 10% of all packages.
