feedback on Canadian etailers?

I'm going to be ordering the upcoming dvd of The Fast Runner and was wondering if anyone had any experience with any Canadian etailers. The sites I'm considering so far are futureshop.ca, absound.ca and DVDMode.com.

futureshop.ca doesn't ship to US, I think.

Some people don't like dvdsoon (www.dvdsoon.ca), but I've never had any problems with them. Besides, they're dead cheap and packages usually 'slip' through customs....

Also, Dv-Depot (www.dv-depot.com) is a great site with excellent service, but they're not so cheap. Their shipping rate is flat from 1-7 discs, so they are a possible option when ordering multiple discs....

AB sound is also excellent, and pretty cheap, but my packages tend to get intercepted by Dutch customs lately......

I've used dvdmode without any problems, and you might also want to check out amazon.ca which still has some coupons listed.

Coupons for Amazon.ca in first post here:


I've had a good experience with DVDMode. Free shipping on 2 is nice, but they have a very limited selection.

i compare prices between DVDMODE and US-DEEPDISCOUNTDVD. And i realised not all titles are necessarily cheaper on the canadian e-tailer..... But nonetheless, DVDMODE has my vote for their efficiency(under a week/5 working days to reach me in Singapore from order!).

Just used DVDSoon on monday to get the OOP 2-disc SE FIGHT CLUB and SWINGERS:SE. Sez they are "On Hand". But nothings happening. What Gives?

And i don't mean to be picky but they don't even have "Singapore" as an option for Country of Residence! C'est fou!

North American DVD has done well by me. I usually order my X-Files box sets from them.

www.dvdboxoffice.com has sold me tons of discs.

I recommend them.

All prices include postage (but they call it free shipping) and once sent only take 1-2 weeks to arrive here in New Zealand.

absound.ca used to get my business but they just don't seam to have the same range.
