Americans should look at this too. With the weak canadian dollar, games are often cheaper to import from Canada to the USA. Plus, they tend to import a lot of gems =).

Even after shipping? I've usually found ordering from Amazon.de to be cheaper than from any of the Canadian retailers for most imports.

Personally speaking, I avoid amazon.de... I like my game boxes to remain in a rectangular shape . But either way, it probably behooves you to search around a bit before ordering. In general, I found their prices to be quite competitive.

As far as S&H... to the Virginia, it's always $12 CAD (about 9 dollars). I think they offer free shipping if it is over $250 Cad (About $190).

I've had no more damaged games from Amazon.de than any other OLGS. Only two dented games out of about 50 ordered to date, both of which were replaced without having to return the dinged copies.

The front page banner specifies that the free shipping at $250 only within Canada. Thanks for sharing the $12 CAD shipping rate though! For a high dollar order that's definitely not bad, especially when they're having a noteworthy sale. Now you've put BGB sales on my radar dammit! laugh

Just to clarify, there is free shipping to the US, but it's only for a certain window:

Quote:
Free shipping for Canadian orders increase to $250 (Canada), US orders qualifies for free shipping for order between $250 - $260 CAD. (sorry, that may sound complicated)

My favorite OLGS, even in Seattle. Best packing, customer service, and import selection. And oh that exchange rate is sweet right now.

Wait. So you're not really saying there's exactly a $10 window for free shipping to the US? So an order of $259 CAD qualifies but not $261??? (or $361 for that matter)

Recently it was between $200 CAD and $250 CAD for free US shipping. Somehow those numbers worked for me. It is amusing though! I presume for orders over $250 CAD the estimated box needed would make shipping super pricey. Under $200 and there's not enough profit to warrant free ship.

Lanterns would be $15 - OP is quoting in CAD (C$), but using USD ($) symbol. Not a critique on OP, just a clarification for US buyers.

Just multiply price by .75 for current conversion rate.

Could not get to $250 CAD but some great deals to be had, and also some hard-to-finds here in the U.S.

The 10% discount more than paid for the shipping, and the exchange rate made many games a better deal than in the states.

Yardmaster for $17.95 CAD
Isle of Trains for $11.95 CAD
Last Will: Getting Sacked for $33.95 CAD
Edo: Expansion #1 for $27.95 CAD
Edo for $44.95 CAD
Arboretum for $13.95 CAD
Peloponnes Card Game for $25.95 CAD

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island for about $44 with the sale is a pretty good deal (CSI $55).

I agree. I hope the move helps this. Considering bgb ships to Canada and the U.S., my impression is that there's just not enough stock to go around (especially for the hot titles).

Same here, but probably due to the Big Box reprint.
