Microsoft Corporation Complaint - 125% Price Differential Between US And Canada
When trying to order the MS Office 2007 Standard Upgrade online, I was continually booted out. I finally realized that Canadians cannot order the upgrade. When I tried going to the microsoft.ca site, the price for the Standard package was 35% higher in Canada than the US. Combine this with the fact that I can only order the entire package, not just the upgrade, I realized that I am paying a whopping 125% more for what I want than if I lived 100 miles south!
This is outrageous given the fact that our currencies have been at or near par for several years. And there are no extra duties or taxes, since this is covered under NAFTA.
MS is just trying to gouge the Canadian consumer and I am furious!
