I remember when the Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar, but I think that was many many moons ago.

I bought some ratchet style load straps tonight. They are made by Erickson and the neat thing about them is they spool up the excess strap length so they stay neat. Erickson is a Canadian company.

Strap price on Amazon.com (USA) $23. Strap price on Amazon.ca (CAN)$55 or $43.30 in US dollars. Why the extra $20 on the Canadian version of Amazon? Needless to say they are being shipped to our US office and I will grab them there...like a lot of things!

+1 walk out of the grocery store with 4 bags in your hand and that is $100.00 .

Most things I have noticed on Amazon are pricey! Those can be purchased for far less at different places, especially Princess Auto.

We get gouged on most things up here and there is no rhyme or reason for it other than we're just stupid enough to keep paying for it.

I remember watching a story on gas prices. The guy being interviewed, when asked why we pay so much more up here for it couldn't keep the grin off his face when he replied "because CDN"s will pay it" mad

Our gas price can fluctuate $0.30 USD / US gallon between morning/night. It's insane! mad

I've only been to Quebec. Drove there from Maine, and I was impressed with how clean it was.

Amazon.ca is hit and miss...Some good deals, but often cheaper elsewhere

I add stuff to my cart on Amazon.ca and let it sit in the "Save for later" section. I'm convinced this lowers the price at some point. Anything I'm in a hurry for I will check multiple sites and then the U.S. pricing with conversion to see what I should be paying. grin2
