I just bought a watch from the states off Ebay, i couldnt resist. It seemed like an excellent deal since it cost less than one of my school text books and I just found an electronic copy of the same text.
In the past, when someone sends me something form the states, they have always marked valuing at $10 or so.
However, the seller may have to mark the value of the watch at the price I paid if I want to insure it for what I paid.
I've heard stories that people buy a watch from the states and end up paying up to $50CAD for tax. I really dont want this to happen, since its a significant fraction of the cost of the watch.
Any experiances or anything where you were able to avoid duties or etc?
