    Hey,

    Do the Best Buys in the states check for a student ID for the education discount? I'm from Vancouver planning to drive down to the Bellingham Best Buy to buy the new Air. I have a Canadian university student ID, will they still give me $50 off and $100 Best Buy gift card?? Anyone know? Thanks

    Are you planning to paid double tax? Washington 8.9% + HST 12%? Those Canadian border try to squeeze every penny out of you! The other day I came back with 2 brand new True Religion pant and while paying them HST($60) they ask me if the pant i was wearing brand new? wtf I had those pant for over a year!
