It's the same here in Canada ordering from the states. Duty on top of exchange rate. A 50$ blanket from u.s can be 150$
How did you order it? If it was online, wouldn't you have known the total cost beforehand?
Yeah we get dragged over the coals all the time up here in Canada too eh, anything listed in American dollars can be pretty much at least doubled to become the amount in Canadian dollars that we have to pay in order to buy the item... And our politicians are too brainless/spineless to do anything about it, to make life easier for Canadians... If you are upset about the charges on your blanket, be thankful you don't have our gas prices... ~$1.20/litre, which is $4.54/gallon... But, thank you for shopping Canadian, and I apologize that our government made it so expensive for you.
You got to mark it as "gift" or "samples" to avoid taxes and tariffs. Everybody knows that.....
How the h*** does something like that happen? I’m in CTand order from UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand all the time. Full shipping, export fees, customs, etc is always laid at checkout before I confirm the order and charged once I do confirm the purchase.
