Has anyone dropped by the Blackwatch sample sale yet? Anything exciting? I haven't gone since they stopped carrying Drake's.

If someone can take a photo of the valstar's that'd be great!

Thanks in advance.

Anyone have experience shipping from Nordstrom?

An item I want listed on the CA site(not available in stores) has to be shipped from the US - duties more than doubles the price.

Tried CrossBorderPickup from the US site but it won't accept a CA credit card.

Figured I'd see if anyone has a workaround...

Here's a workaround that worked for me a couple years ago. I ordered a Vitamix blender shipped to a place in North Dakota for me to pick up. My billing address in Winnipeg was causing my credit card to be refused, much like you. What you need to do is create a fake billing address based on your postal code. For example, take postal code R2G 1Y0. The first three digits of my fake zip code will start with the digits 210 from my postal code. From there, add two more digits that give you an american town, city. I just added 22 and googled that to see if it existed. It did, Brooklandville, MD. So my new billing address is my house number and street in Winnipeg, Brooklandville, MD 21022.

PM me if that's too muddled. Let us know if it works.

I always thought that the billing address had to match the true credit card address.

This worked like a charm!

I always thought the same but it looks like in this instance that they were just looking for a US billing address.

Thanks so much for the tip!

Same trick for gas pump payments in usa. Use the numerical digits of the postal code plus two zeros. J6h4h1=64100

How much did they end up charging you for all? Is it $10 shipping + $7.5 fee?

About that. I asked for no invoice in the box and we'll see if Nords shopping center follows through. If not I'll get nailed pretty hard with customs anyway.

Speaking of customs and assholes, I recently ordered a Barbour jacket from eBay and got charged import charges through their global shipping program. As far as I know, with CETA implemented, I should not be paying duties am I correct? I was just tossed around by eBay and Paypal representatives the entire time and no one would own up for a refund.
Now I'm trying to get my refunds for all of my past transactions that should be duty free under CETA.
Has anyone ever had success?

Keep us posted on that battle!

Even NAFTA exempt items get duties via GSP and that act has been around 20 years. I've always just chalked it up as a loss.

Still fighting, eBay account specialists can't do anything. I've filed letters to the higher ups and filed complaints to the past account specialists and supervisors.
