Crazy.
I noticed that as well. If you went to the product in their sales you would get the sale price, but if you searched for it, then it was regular price.

All and all good on NCIX and Happy Birthday NCIX your now legal ;)
I know it has to do with the laws. But I also know that they used to make some contests like this worth well over 2k $ where Quebec was allowed. I know cuz I won't some poster in them. But now, their contests are either opened to the world (usually Qc included) or to the Rest of Canada (Qc excluded).

I used to laugh at the egg for excluding Quebec and to love NCIX for being inclusive. Now, I put those 2 in the same basket, except that the egg has some of the worst sales ever.

Maybe if enough of us complain to the new Liberal Government they'll change that stupid Quebec sweepstakes law. It's nothing but a cash grab anyway.

I doubt Phillipe Couillard gives a damn about the publicity contest law since it brings them money. I would like to know how much does it cost to allow a contest like this to work in Quebec.

Wish I'd known about this contest before buying a graphics card from NCIX.
