Think twice shopping in Hong Kong / EHobbyAisa vs MILLSIG

Think twice shopping in Hong Kong / EHobbyAisa vs MILLSIG
________________________________________
I made some comparison shopping between EHobbyAisa (EHA) & MILLSIG.
I was looking for the Thunder B Sound Grenade. I set my purchases @ 300$ with MILLSIG for free shipping.
MILLSIG
Thunder B Sound Grenade ( Kit ) 5 x 34.95$= 174.75$
Thunder B Sound Grenade (Shell, 12 pac) 5 X 24.95$= 124.75$
Cr123 Battery 1x 3.95$ = 3.95$
Total 303.45$ (over 300$ Free shipping) under 299.99$ shipping is 24.95$)
Quebec add 5% GST + 303.45$ CND = 318.62$ CND
Free shipping
Total 318.62$ CND

With EHA
Thunder B Sound Grenade( Kit ) 5 x 29.99$= $145.95 USD
Thunder B Sound Grenade (Shell, 12 pac) 5 X 18.00$= 90.00$ USD
Cr123 Battery 1x 3.95 = $3.95 USD
Sub Total 242.45$ USD
Shipping 99.00$ USD
Total 341.45$ USD
Canada Customs
Exchange rate 0.953600 x 341.45$ USD = 325.60$ CND (Rate form my last order) todayís rate 1.01900 it would add 20$ more)
GST /HST 5% + 325.60$ CND = 16.28$ CND
325.60$ + 16.28$ = 341.88$ CND
UPS Brokering fees 40.00$ CND + 341.88$ = 381.88$ CND

EMA to Canada Total cost 381.88$
MILLSIG 318.62$

------------------------------
Difference of 63.26$
Donít get me wrong I like EhobbyAsia, they have lots of cool stuff and I would probably buy there again.
Even if the difference was the same, I would encourage a Canadian company first.
