Default Zunes Being Sold in Canada by TigerDirect

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.cliczune.com/2006/11/zune_available_.html#more' target='_blank'>http://www.cliczune.com/2006/11/zune_available_.html#more</a><br /><br /></div><em>&quot;Yes! You can buy your Zune in Canada. Ok, you have to order it online, but it&rsquo;s in Canada, with Canadian dollars and Canadian taxes. If you like the black Zune, the price is also excellent. Tigertdirect.ca is selling it for $269.97CAD. But the white and brown Zunes are more expensive and are going for $317.99CAD. We checked other online Canadian stores, like bestbuy.ca, amazon.ca, futureshop.ca, but none of them are selling the Zune yet. Obviously, they are not doing that with Microsoft agreement. But if you are Canada and you were going to order a Zune from the US anyway, this may be a good alternative for you.&quot;</em><br /><br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/tigerdirect-zune-canada-nov17.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br />Ok, I didn't see this one coming at all. I knew it was possible to <a href="http://www.ecost.com/ecost/ecce/shop/showcaseb/default~showcaseb~zune.asp" target="_blank">order the Zune from eCost</a>, who ships to Canada, but it ends up being quite expensive and a bit of a hassle. TigerDirect, on the other hand, is based in Canada and I order from them all the time. The <a href="http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2530177&amp;CatId=15" target="_blank">brown Zune is $317.99</a>, as is the <a href="http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2530174&amp;CatId=15" target="_blank">white one</a>, but the black is a <a href="http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2530173&amp;CatId=15">bargain at only $269.97</a> Canadian. I brought back a brown Zune for my friend Matt, and it ended up costing him $314.96 Canadian by the time it was all said and done. I feel good then that, with GST (our tax here in Canada), the brown Zune would have cost $337 plus shipping...so he still got a good deal with me as his courier. If you're in Canada, and want a Zune, looks like here's your hookup!
