Did you:


1. buy using your credit card (I read somewhere that they wouldn't accept Canadian credit cards) and have the unit shipped to a U.S. address

2. use Borderfree

3. have a friend in the U.S. buy the unit for you


Does anyone know what the duty percentage would be? Do you have to pay GST? The Borderfree quote I got didn't show any separate duty or GST figure.

I had a friend in the U.S. order one for me, using my credit card. No problem.


I tried calling Dell Canada to get one, but they quoted me $6200 AFTER my corporate discount.


A few people have used BorderFree successfully.

I used Borderfree. There is no duty, but you have to pay both PST+GST (depending on the province you live in).

I ordered mine with my own credit card and used an address of a relative in the US. The Dell rep said this was fine. I phoned CCRA and they said GST and PST would apply, and also duty if it wasn't made in the US. Any idea where this thing is made?

Just ordered ($2,112 = $2,640 less 20%) from Cory using my credit card for delivery to my friend's U.S. address. He gave me an order number and said it showed a shipping date of July 31st.
