Landspeeder: Toys R US USA vs Canada

Ride on motorized Landspeeder...
Toys R US USA --> 249.99
Toys R US Canada --> 799.99

Sucks when Canadian shoppers are treated like this...

Toys R Us US is $499 regular (currently on sale for $399): https://www.toysrus.com/product?productId=133530956
Toys R Us Canada is $799 regular: http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp ... =135586206

That's really not as bad as you make it out to be.
Sure except that the one in USA was on sale for 249.99 while simultaneously the one in Canada was 799.99... that is more than a three fold increase... and keep in mind that this was from the same franchise... toys r us... huge discrepancy...

I can understand some subtle differences in the markets and the dollar but common... this is not reasonable...

You're picking and choosing your deals to match your opinion - of course an item on sale in the US is going to be cheaper than regular price in Canada.

However we can play this game the other way:
Canada: Connect 4 - $9.97 CAD http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp ... =140523716
US: Connect 4 - $13.19CAD ($10.37USD) https://www.toysrus.com/product?productId=835FA24C

It looks like there are items in Canada which are almost 25% more in the US.

As I said - it would be somewhat reasonable to compare regular prices. It would be unreasonable to compare sale prices because it can work both ways.
