TalkingPresents.com is another Canadian retailer that has decided to switch the prices on their website from Canadian to US dollars. When I called them to inquire, it was explained to me that 98% of their business is from US residents so they don't see the point in having Canadian prices. They are thinking about having both prices listed at some point in the future. Well, since GiftFinder.ca is all about Canadian prices, we've removed TalkingPresents.com from our website. Should they offer Canadian prices at a later date, we'll reconsider them again.
The goal of GiftFinder.ca is to make it easier for Canadian shoppers wanting to purchase goods online to find everything they want from our site, including freebies, contests and discounts. THIS SITE IS FOR YOU! If you know of a reputable Canadian website that has products listed in Canadian dollars, or if you find cool freebies, contests or rebates, please send us an email at webmaster@GiftFinder.ca and we'll post it online or in our next newsletter. Thanks.
Do you know someone that would benefit from the information in this Newsletter or the contents of our website!? If so, feel free to forward them this newsletter and spread the word about our site. And, thanks for your support.
