Got a hot deal you want to share? Need one?

Can we mention country in these offers?

Just a thought. Can we post what country these deals are valid in?

Canada and the US have the same stores, but cross-border ordering is sometimes not possible, or more expensive with a few things.

I guess, it would be nice to know that it's a Candian 10 DVD+R for $10 than a harder to get USA retail offer.

Same with rebates. These are not often valid for cross-border customers.

Lets do it this way. Unless its otherwise stated, its a US deal. If its specifically for Canada, say so.

I wish people would put the country they live in under their name.

I have to agree with Ian on this one.

This is a USA based board.

In the posts I've made for Canadian Deals, I always post if its for Canada on the subject line.

BTW: if you're looking for a Canadian shopping deal, why not try THIS SITE.

There's a lot of Thanksgiving Sales on there! (Canadian Thanksgiving guys :wink: )

I think most people here always assumed it was a US deal unless specified otherwise.
I agree with Ian's decision that it should continue this way.

Thanks to your post, however, I think newcomers will know the "deal" (pun intended) - with respect to what region the posts represent.
