Any online stores ship free to Canada?

I know Amazon does not, DDD shows free shipping on items but I can't check if its only US addresses since their help section (and quite a few other parts of the site) do not work and give me error messages. Any place that do have it? As long as they are in Canada or the US I mean, I checked and even canadian stores don't have free shipping... hell, ABSound is 6.75$ to ship 1 DVD and Futureshop is 5$... seems pretty steep for a package.

I'm very new to DVDs, in fact I just ordered my first player and have yet to receive it. I've been researching for over a month looking for the best places to buy DVDs. So far I've found two places with free shipping to Canada.

dvdboxoffice.com
They're located in Canada and their prices include the price of shipping anywhere in the world.

bensonsworld.co.uk
As the url suggests, they're in England and their prices for DVDs include shipping anywhere in the world (they charge shipping for non DVD purchases). Note that they only sell region 2 PAL disks.

I haven't ordered anything from these places, but I plan to very soon. I think I'll post a little summary of places I've ordered from to provide a Canadian view of mail ordering especially from outside the country.

One thing I've noticed is although most places charge for shipping, many (especially in the US) charge one flat price no matter how many DVDs are ordered. One example is deepdiscountdvd.com.

I hope this helps,
Gilbert

There's no such thing as free shipping - it's built into the price of the disc (imagine DDD's prices without the shipping!!). You should compare the total price of the discs you want - you will probably find that for more than one disc, those that charge an arm and a leg for shipping (eg ABSound) will still emerge cheaper than those with 'free' shipping (eg DVDImport)...
