    The shirt is more expensive. But it costs more than half of the cost of the plain T-shirt to get it to you.

    It might cost more for entry into the Springsteen show, but it'll cost you an extra $14 to get that slip of paper to you.

    We won't get to why two STICKERS cost $24, but we demand answers to why two STICKERS cost $45 to ship — NEARLY DOUBLE the cost of the actual item.

Shipping to Canada sucks, eh?

Hack: Pay an American friend to bring your items across the border when they visit. It will probably be cheaper.
