As someone who has shipped to and from Canada/ US, and has received/ purchased things from the US, the cost gets ridiculous depending on the item. Shipping rates from Canada to US are higher than US to Canada for one thing, plus, duty makes up for the rest of the craziness.
One example of US only in many cases I find is eBay. There are so many great things, at INCREDIBLE prices located in the US that US sellers absolutely refuse to ship to Canada. It's unfortunate. I wish the Canada/US cross boarder shopping policies were reworked. Lots of great breweing gear i'd love to buy in the US!
Agreed though - as board members, it would be great to have promos board member-wide.

Thank you for your understanding and please feel free to PM if you have further concerns.
