Even IBM rips off Canadians

Category Licenses
I had to order some additional Domino Express Licenses today. When I go to the Passport Site, it quotes me $145 a license because I am using the US$ as my default currency. However, when I go to place the order the price rises to $192. That is a 32% up-charge for buying the product in Canada (and that doesn't include tax). Right now the exchange rate is .95, so someone is making a nice 25% profit on the transaction. The sad part is I will pay for this with my US Amex card so the payment will be converted back to US dollars, and Amex will charge me 2% for that as well.
