Just maybe if the store takes US cash and is willing to do a cash sale deal
That only works if the store has a US account to deposit the cash. Otherwise they take a hit on the exchange rate.
Same as you will if you exchange US for Canadian funds if needed to buy. A $.02 loss per dollar doesn't sound like a lot on a dollar, but it really adds up when in the thousands
At the present time. Exchange rate is 1.22
You can spend US funds up here, but don't expect fair exchange rates from stores as nobody is going to check on that.
Your dollar is no different than a Canadian dollar in most stores
