Err...dude...its not Christmas o_o I'm also Canadian but ive never crossed the border to shop before. Things are more expensive there.  

Things are generally cheaper there. Surprised
I live very close to the border and my parents and a lot people I know cross it just to buy gas!

Especially when our dollars have parity or if our dollar is worth more, we get great deals there. I mean for example if you check the prices of books, the Canadian price could be anywhere from 3 to 10 dollars more than the American one.

However it should be noted that these savings are more limited to smaller goods because of tariffs.

*I'm going to put a warning that this is based on my general opinion and understanding of the situation and that it shouldn't be taken as 100% fact


And thanks. I'm going to go head out to a Mac's or Walmart later then. ^^

You can ask most major local bank in your area and they will be more than happy to sell you a VISA or MASTERCARD gift card. That's the safest and guaranteed way to buy one. Some might require some personal identification (like resident card) before they will sell you tho.

Wouldn't there be an age restriction?

I thought we were just talking about methods in general and not specific to a country / region...

I can confirm this.
I purchased a $25 visa gift card (all-access) at my local Vons and was able to buy my AP very easily. Although I registered a Paypall account beforehand but I'm not sure if that mattered. Everything went through pretty easily and I instantly had my AP in my account.
Now I just have one question...what is the difference between Paypal Express and Paypal Credit Card? I used both to completely use up the money in my card (credit card used $20, express took the last $5) but I have no idea what Express was... <_<

If you looked at the smaller print on the side, beside the logo, Paypal express uses a paypal account, paypal credit card just gets you to enter the credit card info directly instead.
