dont you need an american note 7 receipt to claim that?
I uploaded a pic of my Samsung Canada store receipt as well as my Costco Canada receipt... They were both accepted (took about 2 days for them to verify and send me link).

Is it worth going across the border to pick up the phone?
I pre-order from Rogers, but the the CAD going up recently I'm starting to wonder if it's worth it.
Very well worth it, especially with the Note 7 upgrade deal.

Probably depends how close to the border/ a US Samsung store you live. You've got to take into account the cost of gas/time. Plus, if you ever need service, you then need to take it across the border again to get service, and again to pick it up. Even if you live in say Vancouver, the drive back and forth to Seattle will add up if you ever run into issues, so I personally wouldn't go for it.

I was about to pre-order, but viewing the radical difference between the US/CDN price/offer combination I can't stomach the ripoff. I can live with a certain level of "Canadian Premium", but this is not palatable. I've done a lot of cross border in the past, but this one is too convoluted for my taste. $1300 stays in my pocket.

Has anyone been able to receive a pre-order yet from any carriers/Samsung directly? It sounds like almost everyone that pre-ordered in the US (all major carriers, Best Buy, Samsung direct) has it already. There are also a lot of reports that people are receiving a 256 GB SD card with the pre-order gifts, not 128 GB as was advertised.

Thought I saw that a 256GB card would be included when it was first advertised.

Ordered on August 30, 2017 from samsung.com/ca direct. My order has been showing "Preparing Dispatch" since the day I ordered. Now that we are approaching release day, I am asking people to post if their orders say anything different, or when they notice "preparing dispatch" changes on their order to something more substantial.
