The discount is around 70-80%, but US only.
Just for not being able to get it shipped to Canada?
It's clearly posted as [US deal] in the title.

Frankly, this kills all the motivation to post any deals here.
Don't worry about the downvotes. I post many U.S. deals and lots of times they are better than Canadian deals. "Unable to get the deal", well that can apply to almost every deal if people don't want to get off their asses. A lot of people don't want to work for a deal anymore, just want to order online and have it shipped. Thanks OP.

Another example is a deal for Costco members or teachers.
I don't think the intention of the "unable to get the deal" option relates to this case.
If you click on the downvote button, there IS an option. Yes, it's related.

I am not saying that it is right or wrong metric to measure a popularity of a deal against it, but it is an option and it's in a rather grey area. A positive person would still upvote it seeing it being a good deal, whereas a selfish person would downvote it just because they couldn't get it. All I was saying is, don't get discouraged over what people think if your intention is to share a legit deal.
