Canada vs. USA Dollar
Los Angeles, CA
I'm not referring to the fact that the Canadian dollar is worth more than the US Dollar the past 3 weeks.
But remembering the show Looney Tunes is.
Who am I joking?
Actually, I am referring to the fact that THE CANADIAN DOLLAR is worth $1.03 to the US Greenback and even hit as high as 1.11 at one time :)
So when this news came about, and my recent being in-between jobs happened, there was no reason to sulk, but more reason to celebrate. I
The result? - A new MacBook Pro worth $ 1,099. That could easily be CAD $ 1,249.00 or if converted to USD would have been USD $ 1,286.00. Easily a 15% discount.
In reality, I didnt pay for it. I was on vacation, no work, no money and I needed a job so I got myself one, and that meant I needed a new laptop to learn Keynote, Numbers and Words. So there...after returning my Mac and my other laptop and my phone 2 weeks ago, am back with a new job, a new and shiny laptop and some other surprises on the work front.
Life is good.
But its still worth coming down the border to see what a Canadian can get.
A 24-hour stay in New York will afford one to have a $ 50 tax free shopping. But with the US Thanksgiving sales across the border, one can get as much 30-50% discount and that can easily pay for the 14% taxes and duties one is supposed to pay the Canadian gods due from your shopping from the US rather in Canada. :P
Still worth it. And that's what makes it funnier.
What is funniest? The price match doesn't end. Here's one from Best Buy.
And that's where I'm heading to check some new toys for the new Mac. Life is good...to be more explicit, this God-given life is good...and to be more direct - God is good, all the time.
You know the response...
