If you'd like to save yourselves some time, instead of driving to the US, you can order it from Barnes and Nobles for the US (non-inflated) prices, the shipping is only 6.49 for the first item and 2.49 for everyone after that. But if you are looking for a sale on LEGO, you'll probably have to drive there
I do, however, hate how high the prices are. Toys R Us is the US can still have %25 off sales even after their prices are so much lower! It doesn't make sense to me... When we have a %20 off sale in Canada, we are paying the US MSRP. It's so unfair.
