Every Canadian knows the pain of shopping at the US Amazon store. Here’s an example.
You find an inexpensive charcoal grill, say the Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Kettleman Charcoal Grill (affiliate link). You check it out and it sounds like just what you’re looking for. You see the price is $63.69. Great deal. But then comes the kick in the groin.
The price doesn’t include “$217.05 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Canada” – three times the price of the grill itself!
So, you go to the Canadian version of Amazon and search for the exact same grill. The price? *398.00* – over a hundred dollars more.
This happens over and over to Canadians.
