Advice on keeping/returning Canadian DVD

I ordered the Zoolander DVD from CDNow and received the Canadian version for some strange reason. I live in AZ and CDNow is not even based in Canada.

The DVD seems to work and play fine now.
However, what would happen if the DVD somehow went bad after 60 days, for example. I think CDNow has a 30 day policy. I would not be able to do what a lot of people do - exchange at a local retail store because it is faster and more convenient. This is the Canadian version with a different packaging and barcode/UPC from the U.S. version.

What would you do? I'm sure I could easily return it to a local store if it was a U.S. version, but mine is Canadian.
If I can recall, some people received Jurassic Park 3 from CDNow with Canadian inserts to receive the free DVD????

Has something like this happened to anyone else?

I would just keep it.

I live in the UK and I get almost all my dvd's from dvdboxoffice, very few are actualy canadian specific discs. Those that are as far as I can tell have duel english/french covers and inserts.

They are ALL region 1 and play perfectly, to answer your 30 day return question, if it does screw up just get in touch with the dvd distributor and send it direct. I had to do this with my Akira SE to Pioneer.

Just go to your order history - if the order is still up, get an RA number and send it back to CDNow.

Yea for some reason CDNOW sends out canadian dvds. I bought the Fast & the Furious from them and it was the canadian one. Thats not the problem, but the certificate to get my rebate was. They finally agreed to give me a $10 credit since the certificate was canadian and I couldn't use it here. Oh well, still I am satisfied with what the customer service said.

If it's not actually different from the US disc, I would just keep it. I've never had a cd 'go bad' in any amount of time.
