For those of you who are not like me (aka Political Geeks), you might be surprised to know that for the last year or so the Canadian Dollars has been on fire. Today it reached a 35-year high, when it surpassed the 93-cent mark. Yet no company, none what so ever, has reduced prices to reflect this change. The Dollar has been rising for 4 years, yet we are paying the same amount for all products that we have always been paying. Most of the prices were set when the Canadian Dollar reached an all time low of 61.92 cents back in January 2002. Well I just ordered a new White Macbook last night. I am quite excited to see mine come in, but I discovered that Americans are paying 83 dollars less for a Macbook than Canadians. Now I am student so I took advantage of the Student Discount, so I do save about 51 dollars Canadian over the regular price. But if the price was locked to the American Dollar I would be paying 83 dollars less. Don't get me started on Automobile companies, they are much worse. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect Apple to be pegging their prices to all currency fluctuations. But when the Apple Macbook was released, the Canadian Dollar was sitting at 82 cents US. Today the dollar has climbed a full dime and if as expected the Bank of Canada raises Interest rates this month, we could see almost a 2 cents rise this month. Probably see the Canadian Dollar Paring with the American Dollar be the end of this year. I'm wondering what's the point of a higher Canadian Currency, my buying power has actually gone down. All the while my export ability has also declined. So I ask you, do you think Apple might reduce their prices for Canadians in the next few days/weeks? And Should I hold my Macbook order until the prices decline?
