Canada Godfather Price?

hello:

Wondering any of my fellow Canadians have picked up the Gidfather yet? How much did it cost? I've seen it listed on Future Shop for 82.99 and at DVDBoxOffice for $129...what a price difference. (All prices are in Canadian dollars)

Safeway

You guys need to pay more attention in math... Re: Exchange rates... I'll exchange as many US $20 bills as I can carry if you give me $80 CDN back!!

BTW, I got the box set from Safeway in Calgary for :

$77.99 Club Card Price (Pre-order)
- 7.80 10% off for First Tuesday of the Month (last week)
- 5.00 SUTP Discount Book Coupon ($10 off $50)
+ 4.56 GST
--------------
=$69.75

==> or about $44.58 US

Calm down Baileyr...it was obviously a joke and I'm half-canadian myself. I get great deals every time I go up there. Next time I'm gonna have to check out the dvds.

Calm?

Calm down? When wasn't I calm?

I was just commenting on how how poor a persons math skills would be (unfortunately, a common problem these days) if they thought that $20US == $80CAD. No more inflammatory than the original post...

Perhaps you shouldn't be so touchy about replies to your posts...

Man, those are some great prices. I still get scared at the 15% sales tax even though I know it's a good deal though.

</small>The difference between the two posts was that the former was clearly tongue in cheek.

If anyone has a problem with a post please email me: there is no need for anyone to feed the flames. (Didn't I post this message twice already in the last week or so....?)
