Screwed by Amazon, Part Eleventy Billion

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.
