yup...looks like it'll be like this for the rest of the year.
some analysts are predicting that it'll go as low as 75 cents by January 2016.

I'm hoping it'll at least go back up to ~0.85 - 0.90 between spring and summer this year.

In the same situation as you except I'm going in April. You guys think it's better to exchange currency now or wait longer and hope it rises a bit (or drops..)

Question about getting the nexus pass. After the interview do you always get a email and notification on your goes acct? Because I got an approve email and notification and got my nexus card but my wife did not and still waiting for her card, wondering if they missed she somehow . both had interview same day.

IIRC you should get an email regarding an account change.

I suggest calling after a few days to just inquire about her account status. But if she didn't get the email, I don't think she should be expecting the card in the mail.

Who's headed down to South to watch the superbowl?

Fuck the dollar, nothings going to stop me from partying it up like a Yank.

EDIT: I'm just driving to seattle to watch the game, i'm not actually going to the superbowl. Tickets were like $3k... fuck that.

Nobody can answer that with certainty. Analysts think CDN will continue dropping to like 75.

Don't think many people could have told you that the dollar would be down like 7-8 in just the past month.

Since economies tend to overcorrect before it returns to normal, just watch oil.

When oil stops falling and its price become stagnant for a while, you should see CAD to keep falling another bit more, that'd be the sign of CAD recovering.

There are 2 keys to success:

1) never tell them everything you know

Gas is still much cheaper, so are most OEM car parts.

^I've exchanged over 2000.00 in the last year alone. This summer twice a week for close to two months! The last run of 100 for 100 was three Sundays in a row in January!!!

Since then, nothing. A little disturbing, 'cause I've been telling all my friends about it. So many people took advantage and it stopped being profitable??

Not sure, but I thought the 100 for 100 was done for in November when they held one a few times in that month......... then January happened.

The Casino is called Northwood and is the sister casino to the Nooksack. No tables. Just slots. I have never seen anyone younger than 40 in that place, LOL. It is in the middle of buttfuck nowhere. Between Aldergrove and Sumas border crossing. Within walking distance to zero avenue.

They have $4.99 brunches every weekend, but they are not good. Just cheap. If you're young, the place will give you the heebie jeebies. I feel too young at this place, LOLOLOLOL.

http://northwoodcasino.com/promotions/

And to get the offers and perks, you have to sign up.

Remember, second hand smoke is not good for you. I love that shit, so it's all good.

Is the $100 for $100 every day or select days only?

Very select, as in often it is not advertised on their website. Members get e-mail about them. The ones in January I found out about just by happenstance - going on seniors day (Tuesday) and seeing one of the receptionists cutting out the vouchers. I had to ask.


They have a toll free number, so I can call them now.

Question. When declaring the value of goods brought back into Canada, do you declare the value of item only or the total of value (tax + shipping and other fees)?

You declare everything you paid, whether it's a US tax, shipping charge, installation, etc.

For example, I got 4 tires mounted and installed in Bellingham a few years back - I declared the price of the tires, and the agent asked for the receipt, then told me I have to declare the total amount paid.

Which was almost a hundred dollars more than the tires, due to mounting, disposal, tire tax, etc.
