    The bank is going to rip you off again on the US to Canadian exchange. It’s ridiculous what they get away with.

    Yeah, paypal is even worse. Banks, credit cards, paypal all take a cut when converting currency.

    They add an extra fee or spread to the exchange rate. It’s a lot more than it should be:cheers:

    You need to manually select your credit card as the currency converter for every single transaction. An extra 3 clicks of the mouse but it'll save you from PayPal's ridiculous conversion rates when paying through a credit card in currencies other than CDN.

    Can you let us know where that option is as I am about to purchase an expensive item from the UK and a percent or so savings would be helpful. Thx in advance.

    If paying by PayPal, immediately underneath your CC will be a blue link called "Conversion Option" or some such (I forget the exact wording). After clicking on that, you can choose to either stick with PayPal or convert using your CC company. PayPal did so as people were setting it up once and PayPal never could get that extra money so they're now doing it so everyone has to manually change it every single time for each transaction. Annoying but not too bad. Kind of underhanded, though.

    This thread continues to highlight the lack of good deals on Amazon Canada!

    Thanks! Never heard this one so decided to give it a shot.
     
  13. If I buy something for $100 on Amazon.com and the rate is 1.36, am I paying more than $136? What bank is involved? How much more are they adding?

    It's ok, but definitely the weakest of the Sire albums. It was also easily available as a cutout.

    The Sire album you want is Shake Some Action.
