Kindle Touch with Special offer in Canada

Hi, I am thinking of getting a Kindle Touch, and was considering going across the border and getting a special offers one at Best Buy. Was wondering if the KT will work in Canada.
Thanks for the help in advance

Since it works everywhere else in the world, I don't know why it wouldn't in Canada. HTH.

Thanks much, I was just concerned about the Special offers not making it work outside of the US. Looks like I am on my way to get a Kindle.
YAY

If you register the Kindle to a Canadian address you won't get many, if any, special offers. Any you do get may not be available to Canadians.

The main difference I find is so many more books are available to Americans than Canadians including the Daily Deals and special offers for discounts on books, few though they may be.

You are correct that most if not all of the ads and special offers aren't available to Canadians. I've only been able to take advantage of a local offer for a $10 Amazon gift card for $5.

However, almost all of the Kindle Daily Deals on amazon.com as well as the monthly '$3.99 and under' lists are in fact available to Canadians. The only consistently unavailable reduced price ebooks seem to be the Nook Daily Find price matches, since those are only offered to US customers by Nook in the first place.
