Did you have to ask something specific to get the discount? They told me they had those units but weren't aware of any special.

Yup---That's always been a good one!! Gen #1.
Fedex sends a bill around 3 weeks later. $10 brokerage fee and taxes. I order RC parts from the US and it's the norm.
I got a surprise too today. Opened my front door and there sitting on my steps is my smoker. Masterbuilt shipped it to the billing address instead of the shipping address. I have a trip to the US coming up and would have had $800 CAN duty and tax free to bring my smoker back. Now I will get charged from Fedex the $10 fee and 13% (MB) on $290 CAN about $40.
So a $50 mistake. Called Masterbuilt to just tell them to watch the labels when shipping. With getting the smoker a week early and getting such a good deal I was not going to worry about the extra cost. Would you believe they apologized and said to send them the extra charges when they come in in the mail and they will refund me the difference.
Wow what great customer service.
Government always gets their taxes. lol
NAFTA (free trade deal) says anything made in MEX, USA, CAN will not have duty. Our smoker is made in China. Most of my orders to the US are for RC stuff. No duty on toys. :)
I always get charged taxes.
I hope I'm wrong, will find out. I always send stuff to the border to save the taxes. Border for me is 50 minutes away. Don't ever have UPS ship to you from the US, brokerage fee would have been over $100.
Looks like 8% duty on BBQ and then your home province taxes.
Mine came Thursday. I had it delivered to work, but life happened and it's still sitting there, unopened. On wednesday I ordered Pellets from Todd. They arrived today!! Wow that was alot faster than I could have hoped. Hopefully I will get it seasoned and smoking this weekend. I can't wait.
It's not really that the Meat Probes in the MES units are all wrong, it's just that there really isn't a good way to test them for accuracy. I would never trust mine.
