    I will be buying a TouchPad on July 15th but I don't know which store is the best and who offer a better service if I have to return my TouchPad.

    I hesitate between Staples, Future Shop and Best Buy.

    So where will you buy yours??

    Currently, Futureshop has a deal that you get $50 off a printer when you buy a tablet. This applies to the TouchPad. So it might be handy if you're looking for an ePrint-compatible printer too. Besides that deal, everywhere is still the same pricing for the tablet, for there's not too much importance on store (aside from possible extended warranty plans).


    As for best price deals for the accessories, as far as I can tell, the cheapest are:


    Hopefully that'll help some decide where to head

    I've pre-ordered a cover & touchstone from Futureshop since the Touchstone is cheapest there.

    I'll probably end up picking up the actual TouchPad in store though, I don't think it will sell out too quick and I'd rather get it on launch day. From the sounds of it in the US the accessories aren't widely available in stores.

    I'll get mine from where ever I can find it near my house. Would rather get it from the source (since i would get a discount on a extended warranty), but if that rumour on the Costco price for a 32Gig pans out I'll get it from there instead.

    I suggest a thread on CDN launch day to have people post where they picked theirs up.

    Costco has the TP with a protective sleeve, or do they all come with that?

    Burn !!! I've given enough money to Futureshop to support more than a few Canadian families

    But tell me, why are we paying 19$ more when our dollars is on par if not better than US currency?

    Thanks everybody.

    I just saw that Staples open at 8h while future shop open at 9h30 and Best Buy at 10h. So I will probably buy it at Staples :P

    But does anybody knows if there is a compagny that offer a better service in case something happen to my future TouchPad?

    Looks like Costco has reduced their online price as well ($549.99 for 32 GB), wonder if it will be cheaper in store?

    The word going around the forums is that the price reductions happened to all Canadian retailers and it's the new permanent price, not a sale.

    i am buying mine with staples , as i work for them we have a deal where we get 30% off the ticket price , which currently for a 32gb is 549 , which means its 383 plus tax , 441 or so after tax , so i am happy with that price .

    Looks like Costco is offering the 32GB Model for 549.00. 90 day return policy, plus 2 year mfg warranty. Thats hard to beat. Hopefully we will get the $50 dollar rebate from HP as well.

    that depends
    my friend works for staples in whitby ON and had it on display
    however, in calgary, iv'e been to multiple stores (best buy, future shop, staples) they've all said the same thing here "we aren't allowed to put it on display yet until launch day" which is dumb, why put out a pre order without it being on display???
