I will maybe order another one. I guess in Quebec they were scared that those poor students would do illegal stuff to them...
Funny thing : When I tried to process my order with that 100$ coupon, IE (no error messages) and Firefox (got a response as the coupon was invalid) had problems dealing with the web page. When I used Chrome, everything went through with no problem.
"Companies love gouging Canadians" : True, but remember that they charge us more because we (the government) charges them a lot more than in the USA for employment benefits, taxes, paperworks, etc...
I'm a bit bummed that TRU Canada is starting to mark up sets from MSRP though...they never used to, that I noticed anyway. I thought that was a US-only thing. =(
Right. I recently browsed TRU and saw the price for set like, Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape, has been updated to $54.99, which was only $49.99 in last month. So, even if they periodically offered 20% off on lego sets, it would just be $6 below purchasing from LEGO store. Besides, don't forget 5% VIP points cashback was offered by LEGO store. As a result, shopping from TRU ended up saving only $3.5 (in this case) even if they offered 20% off. Thus, the mark-up is definitely killing their deal.meclo wrote: I'm a bit bummed that TRU Canada is starting to mark up sets from MSRP though...they never used to, that I noticed anyway.
