    US prices still cheaper at mops?? Weird.

    Well the title of the thread sais it all. I just got the december newsleter from mops and Im VERY surprised to see the US dollar still stronger than the Canadian. Maybe somebody could explain that? Thanks.

    ( I wouldnt ask if I hadent noticed other online vendors are giving the CAD its full value)

    I think the link above to the vendor explains it very well. The bottom line is, if you do not like the pricing then shop somewhere else.
    If my wife asks, it was only $20.

    If you want the US pricing, purchase the items in US currency.
