Donít misunderstand me, my dudes. I am not slagging First Strike; I am very much looking forward to getting those spinners wet and I have no issue with the delivery method.  Nor am I complaining about the length of delivery time. 5-10 business days via international mail is very realistic. Given the current economic and political climate, I am prepared for it to take longer. Thatís why I ordered in August

I was just commenting on the number of stops it made, and how it seemed to hit every USPS distribution centre in California on its way to Canada.

I've been chatting with George about the shipping, and as expected, it's related to cost (Fedex is very expensive). He sent me a run down of the costs if people are interested.

USPS first class = $6.00 USD (up to 15oz of weight)
USPS priority mail = $26 (any weight that fits in the box)
UPS = $30 if under 3 pounds of weight, $75 for anything over 3 pounds.

"I will try to make UPS a shipping option to Canada on the website. In the meantime, if someone wants a package shipped to Canada with a different carrier (other than USPS), they can message me."

Hope that helps with anyone thinking of placing an order (which I'd recommend  ;D)

I've always found that UPS, FedEx and Purolator to ve the ABSOLUTE worst for receiving a shipment. From what I understand its my town of residence and company delivery policy that makes things bad. Mission is near the end of the delivery zone. Ill often see "Out for delivery" for two or three days in a row. The BEST delivery standard once the product has hit Canadian soil has been Intertelicom Canada.

Note to sender - CA is not California (aka CA) in this case. Call them.
So you think they shipped it to Anaheim Lake, Canada?  Are you sure? Iíve never heard of this before. Do you have some inside info about a new hub for Canada Post?
