Just wondering if anybody who did a group buy in Canada got a little extra with their order. Such as a bill from FED EX for some extra delivery charges.

I, for one, will never do another group kickstart EVER. I'm kinda annoyed that the kickstarter didn't state that there may be extra charges incurred for shipping. Whenever I get packages sent from the US they NEVER have any extra charges. I'm pissed at Game Salute for shipping this way and not being up front with the extra charges. Should Game Salute not have known this? I mean, being a game publisher and shipping games all the time...? I would not have kickstarted this had I known. Is my anger displaced? Is this common practice? WTF??!

That said, I'm lucky that I had a great group who pitched in to help and I didn't have to foot the whole tab. But it's terrible to have to go back and ask others for more which defeats the whole kickstart deal altogether.

Very disappointed. That's my gripe for the day... Thank you.

That isn't something that anyone involved in the Kickstarter should have had to mention. There is often extra fees involved when receiving a delivery in other countries from other countries, depending on the service used to deliver it.

Pretty sure mine arrived via Canada Post, which means that it was initially sent via USPS.

They probably shipped via FedEx due to the combined order. Cheaper to ship but man o man does FedEx like their border fees.

I try to avoid them at all costs when going across the border.
