UPS doesn’t deliver to Lethbridge for some reason, so Purolator does the deliveries for them. I got hold of Purolator this morning and was told that a driver attempted delivery yesterday morning at 10:30, which was horse hockey since I was in the office at that time and have a full view of the parking lot. Anyway, I could tell I was going to have several more days of waiting for the package, so I decided to just go to the depot and pick up the package myself! Well, that wasn’t without drama, because dealing with UPS is always frustrating, but I finally got to bring home my iPad!!!
Isn’t it beautiful?
I had to pay UPS $48 in brokerage and other fees, which is fine, and actually a lot less than I expected. So the iPad wound up being about $60 more than it would have cost to buy it in Canada. BUT my out of pocket cost is $100 lower than if I had just bought through Apple since I got to use my Amazon gift certificates so my convoluted acquisition process makes sense.
I can’t wait to play with it, but I have a huge job to do tonight. I will let it taunt me a little longer. 😀
