I am confused - it can be returned if unopened? How is one supposed to know if one likes the product without opening it?

Oh and my Kobo was purchased from Indigos at the Eaton Centre as well.

Just bought a Glo from Chapters simply because they have a free Roots leather case promotion on now, which is better than nothing. Wish they had a money-off promo on as they do with the Mini right now.

Sadly my KTouch died yesterday after a drop. I'm in Korea where none of the mainstream ereaders are available locally (only massively overpriced iRivers). While the Glo is quite cheap in Japan - $100 give or take - they won't ship abroad, and the Glo doesn't seem to be available online from anywhere in the US, so I bought in Canada and am having it shipped here. From what I could gather in terms of hardware the Paperwhite has the advantage of lower minimum brightness and 'whiter' light, while the Glo is more evenly lit, but the more featureful firmware of the Kobo won me over (I know it's buggy from having owned a Touch, but I can deal with that as a trade-off for cbz/r support, much better type options, epub, etc.)

Costco

I saw the black kobo glo at costco in Calgary, Alberta with the sleep cover for 129 or 127. My understanding is that Costco has a very lenient return policy.

I bought mine from BestBuy because of their lenient return policy.

I've seen it at 2 Costco here in Montreal; they are packaged in a large cardboard card/blister pack near the laptops and cameras. I had to look for it as it wasn't a very noticable display. Costco will definitely have a better return policy than either Best Buy, Future Shop or Chapters in my experience. It's basically "no questions asked" as long as you have your bill and all the parts/packaging. I've returned a netbook, a digital camera and a blueray player in the past (after using) with no arguments...

I just wanted to share that Costco does have these as mentioned. It was on promo starting just before xmas for $127.

It comes on their backerboard with a "free" black plethor or whatever fabric that is - sleepcover. The cover is quite nice, much better than any of the $20 cheaper ones Chapters sells. The cover bends back on itself and has an elastic that holds it back, i like it a lot. The cover retails for $40 fwiw.

call your local costco to check stock they are largely sold out. if they don't have it ask them to tell you what location does to save you calling around (they have screens that tell them other location quantity). The stocking number at costco canada is 336541. I just bought one today because I got sick of waiting for the Paperwhite.

cheers

Futureshop/bestbuy is officially 3 days, but they will let you go over that by quite a bit if you are exchanging. I had a Zune MP3 player for almost two months that I bought for $150, when one with double the capacity went on sale for $100. The manager let me return mine, and refused to "mark up" the sale price of the new one to $150, as I requested. So, I just spent the extra money on the $50 premium accessory pack. Anyway, bottom line is, Futureshop is usually good. I mean, heck, any store that accepts OPENED movies back has a pretty good return policy right?
