    I just thought I'd mention that this is the same as the U.S. version, for those who'd still like to pre-order and maybe save a few bucks (cost me US$19), and as such would like to know the "Canadian" version is "safe". The only bilingual printing on any of the package documents is a non-glued (i.e. removable - New Line: note this!) outer cover page. I have just got around to viewing this after having it for almost a week, and you are free to remotely slap me a few times for that, it is deserved, and I will be more careful where I get my medication in future.

    Thanks for the confirmation Craig.

    I preordered this through Amazon.ca w/ a $5 coupon - $23 CDN. Glad to know it's unchanged from the US version.

    Fox has been really good with maintaining the original packaging for their Canadian customers. [​IMG]

    Could someone post or refer the current Amazon.ca coupons? I'd appreciate it as others would too I'm sure. Surprisingly, they almost never pop up on the Bargains area.

    Guess someone should make mention of M & C at Amazon.ca there too if no one has.

    Oh, just realized the original poster was Canadian. Not sure I'll save too much when I tack on the shipping sharge.

    Hi Jeremy, How's it going? [​IMG]

    Did amazon.ca screw up the pre-order price a while back? It's now listed at $38.49 [​IMG]

    It was originally $10 cheaper at Amazon.ca. No changes have been made to my preorder however.

    Hi Jean Paul!

    Oh man I'm glad I ordered it when I did!!

    Amazon sometimes does this. Yes, my preorder amount was only $28.69. I used a $5 coupon code I found over at DVDTalk. This brought it down to $23.69. I'll post them in this thread later tonight if nobody else has.

    I used the amazon.ca discount coupon *that expires TODAY* for something else, didn't even pre-order this from amazon and they rarely send stuff out early. They quote a list price of Can$55. Sorry, I just checked and this disc set seems to have drastically gone up in price since I pre-ordered it for Can$25 in Feb...I didn't expect such a hike. I imagine Future Shop will be cheaper than amazon is now.

    Here are two Amazon.ca coupon codes:

    MAPETRADECAN
    $5 off, expires May 31, 2004

    MAPSCTELE5Q2
    $5 Off - Expires May 31, 2004

    Sorry, I can't remember which one I used recently, but it did work. Too bad the price shot up for M&C.

    The same thing happened with Star Wars. I preordered it at $48.99, now it is priced at $69.99.

    I'm the guy that posted those coupons at DVD Talk. [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, I've already used them. [​IMG]

    Heh....thanks a bunch Jean Paul. They are very nice! [​IMG]

    Too bad I didn't preorder Star Wars when it was lower. $69.99 does seem quite high for it now though. Maybe it will come down again shortly.

    Yes, thanks JP! OT, but I just used one of your codes on the Scarface gift set...at $17.50 after $5 discount that's less than I paid for the 2-disc edition I think...it's the 1932 version I want.

    Re the Star Wars, I'm thinking Future Shop will sell this similarly to Indy, at about $50-55 and with some discount promotions, why I didn't pre-order. IIRC recently the box sets (Alien, Indy, etc.) are very competitively priced at FS, though not in the league of some places if you pay well in advance.

    Good idea I pre-ordered for only $28.69 with a $5 coupon, bringing it down to $23.69.

    I recommend pre-ordering. If you find a cheaper price later, you can always cancel before it's shipped without being charged for anything.
