stop taunting me with deals that aren't available here
I created an account on overstock using a Canadian address, in an attempt to buy a $95 rug (free shipping on first order!). Do I want customized emails alerting me to good deals? Sure. But as soon as I log in, the $95 rug magically became $140, plus over $60 worth of shipping and duties. Needless to say, I'm not buying the rug anymore. That would have been the end of it, except now I keep getting spam from Overstock telling me to buy that rug for 20% off, or free shipping, or whatever... except none of those deals apply outside the US. Yeah, thanks for the continual slap in the face...
Hello canadian1788, Thank you for your post. Unfortunately due to various factors such as the length of shipping time, customs tariffs and taxes, we cannot offer the same prices as our domestic orders. We are currently upgrading our International services, and hope you will bear with us as we develop a better approach to handling specific issues that arise. In the meantime, if you would like to be unsubscribed to our mailing list, please email your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
i understand the extra $60 in shipping/customs/etc, but there is no reason why the base price would jump from $95 to $140, other than the fact that Canadians are supposedly willing to pay more for the same stuff due to our smaller market
