Price drop in Canada for PRS600 & PRS300

Noticed a small price drop for the PRS600 -$350 and PRS300 -$240.

Thanks. PRS-600's are currently showing out of stock.

They are the same price at BestBuy.ca and they seem to have both in stock.

As you can see this is my first post on here because I haven't gotten an ereader yet. I have my heart set on the PRS-300 and was wondering if there would be any issues if I bought it down in the States? Would there be any warranty or registration issues?
I am going down to the States this weekend and hope to pick one up for $200.

It is available at Future Shop, for those interested. However, I only saw them in black.

London Drugs seem to have matched these price reductions also.

Do they ship to other locations too?
If so, one can use the price to get a discount from Future Shop, knowing that they match the price and give another 10% of the difference. FS still shows them at $399.

I bought mine at Best Buy for $199.99 USD while in the States 2 months ago. Cost as appeared on my credit card statement was $223 Canadian. I had no problems activating it and using it here in Canada.

Remember, the dollar conversion printed in the paper is not what you actually get. My bank charges 2.5% on top of the current exchange rate it pays when I use my card in the States - even with that 2.5% fee it is still the best exchange rate compared to buying US dollars at the bank or a foreign exchange place. Note: Never exchange money at a US bank - they offer the worst rates.

You should also consider getting the "reader cover". It feels more like a book than pulling it out of the padded case that comes with the ebook.
