This contest excludes Quebec. IMHO it really sucks that a company I consider to be fairly big still excludes Quebec, specially when it wasn't always the case (back when it was smaller, I never used to see those things coming from NCIX).

They do that due to all the special laws for Quebec. Quebec is to blame not NCIX and I'm the first to poke fun at NCIX but they are doing a great giveaway and just don't want to 10 pages of legal BS or all the added taxes and crap that Quebec wants.

All and all good on NCIX and Happy Birthday NCIX your now legal ;)

Ahh, 18 years of NCIX, and their website still looks like it belongs in the nineties! Way to not 'sell out' and bow to the pressures of 'ease of use' and 'modern design', NCIX!!!

Ya le Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux, is to be blamed for the excluding Quebec in almost every entry. Here the reason why: Concours publicitaires*- Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux (RACJ)

TL:DR

The reason is that these contests have to pay a fee to the Government if the prize is over 100$ and if they wish for anyone in Quebec to participate.

I'm going to live in Gatineau this summer but since it's still technically Quebec I still can't get in :P

That doesn't compare to the woes that Memory express is having at the moment. They're changing over to a new POS, and the inventory they have indicate on the website does not match what they have in-store. It's a nightmare! You walk into a store expecting them to have 14 of the monitors you want, only to find out those numbers are from february and they have 0 in stock. It makes planning a rig very difficult.

There is another HUGE issue MemX has and its a issue our company kicked to the curb, Remember children always do a reference check :thumb:

True words there GBA:thumb:

Also for a very long time issue there is different prices on same / identical product.
Look at an item on one page price is $
Look at same product on a different page price is $$$.
