American online stores that ship to Canada

With the Canadian dollar close to par with the US dollar, many Canadians are heading south of the border to shop, often facing 2-4 hour lineups at border crossings.

To avoid this hassle, why not order online and have your merchandise shipped right to your house? Online retailers that ship to Canada include JC Penney, Lands End, Altrec and Bare Necessities. You can access their websites from here or here.

Folding bikes: Dahon, Schwinn, electric bikes ...

I've had a folding bike for a few years now, and it's a great way to get around in spring or summer. If you get a 20" aluminum frame model, they only weigh around 25 lbs., so they're easy to carry around, throw in the trunk of your car, or carry on public transit or in your boat! Check out this cool video of a Dahon folding bike:

Best place to buy a folding bike online is , or in Canada: folding bikes on eBay Canada or Canadian Tire .
