Amazon.ca has San Andreas for $30 CDN...but theres a catch

So I was looking around on Amazon.ca's site to see if they had any good DVD bargains and I got side tracked into the games area. I saw GTA: San Andreas for $29.99 CDN. So I added it to my cart to check out and it said it couldn't be shipped to my US address. I don't know why? So, for the Canadian buyers out there....this is a pretty good deal.

Amazon.ca doesn't ship video games internationally. AFAIK this is true of all Amazon stores worldwide. I don't know the exact reason.

GTA: GWN would make a great sequel. But only if it had Mounties, Niagra Falls, and Dave Coulier.

Canada has hookers, right?

Fire me off an Email if you want it, not your address, its still too far out, just an Email so I know how many copies to order and if 25 is enough.

[email protected](NOSPAM)rogers.com

To give you a real price, lets see, each copy came to 35$ Cdn shipped. Convert that to US price and add 4.00$ US shipping, that will be your price.

Looking at the site - the price has now been raised to 69.99 CDN. Hopefully you got even before the price correction.

Let us know how it goes.

I doubt they'll honor the misprice for anyone no matter how many copies they ordered, unless Canadian law on the matter is radically different from the U.S. law.

I think They'll honor the misprice!

I Pickup 12 copies Marmalade Boy Scrapbook Collection vol. 1 for $0.99 CA = around $0.60 US Dollar (MSRP $99.99 US DOLLARS).

Make over $600 in profit on Ebay
