I will be traveling to San Diego this summer and am thinking while I am in the US it might be a good idea to pick up a scanner, and save some cash, and save paying for shipping to Canada. Any places that are easy to find in San Diego? Maybe with a website so I can check out first haha.

not bad, $450. About $100 cheaper than the best price I have seen in Canada. Can anyone tell me what your tax rate is so I can figure out how much that $450 scanner will cost once I am done with it?

The tax rate is about 8.75% depending on where you purchase a product in San Diego County. Local tax districts and cities may have an additional tax for that area betwen 1/2 to 1 % Ask the guys at HRO if there is any way you could be exempted from CA Sales tax and they may know a way. You could for example have them list your address in Canada and have them ship it to your hotel address in CA.

The only thing I would need to double check is how much I can bring back without paying at customs, and if I am over, how much it might be. I don't want to break the bank on this since after tax, its looking like $60 savings. I'm going to Comic-Con so I will probably be buying a few shirts and toys haha.
