It is stupid how we pay so much more. What happen to Wal-Mart's fight for us customers back in february?hatcher wrote:All the summer sets look amazing. Hopefully Zellers will have their pre-christmas BOGO again this year, because it's the only way I'll be able to afford them. I also hope that LEGO takes into consideration that the Canadian dollar is once again worth MORE than the American, and at least narrow the rediculous gap between Canadian and American pricing.
I'm not holding my breath on that one, but a guy can hope.
Zellers is being wise these days. They have BOGO with exclusions all the time now. But last time's sale was lucky even though it had exclusions. There was a bug and all lego applied to the BOGO deal and not just atlantis, ben 10 and bionicle. So they weren't as wise that time.
Regardless, lego continues to raise prices in Canada when America raises prices too such as battle packs. America cost $10 and went up to $11. Canada cost $13 and went up to $12. Is our currency really that bad that causes a mark up of 2 times that of americans? We're now paying 1.4 X the amount for most sets. :(
