I have a m/c (Wells Fargo) for work and it turns out their head office is in the U.S., simple as that. I figured it would get turned down since the billing address is in Canada but both orders came through. They did turn down me CIBC visas in the past.
Seems they made my billing address someplace named Cherrypoint, Washington (never been there never heard of it) and shipped to my Blaine Wash. addy.
I think I mentioned about the K.B. gift cards, you can use them online so if you have a friend in the states that can get one for you, you only need the number off the card to order, not the card. I have done this in the past.
Thanks for the info on the cupon jadesfire, used the 20% off any amount, saved me a bundle, worth keep your eyes out for them.
