Canadians: Vault #10 shipping - Be Careful:
I was ordering Vault 10 and noticed 2 shipping options. UPS Standard and Standard International Shipping. UPS charges an assload to handle the brokerage (the fee they charge to determine how much tax you owe). It's the cheaper option this year, so I know lots of people are going to choose it, only to get a large nasty bill when the record gets delivered.
You can self clear packages from UPS (pick them up somewhere and run them through customs yourself). That always felt like a pain to me.
I noticed that by adding the deaf charlie vinyl to the order for some reason the international shipping option dropped from 62.99 to 44.75. That's how I'm going to check it out. Quite often when it's USPS to Canada Post packages under $100 fly through without customs charges. Even if they get dinged it's about $15+gst/hst/pst. A lot better than UPS's $30 or $40 plus tax.
short version: Fuck UPS (when it comes to international mail).
