Anyone watching the dollar get crushed? The US dollar is now worth $0.92 in Canada.

It really sat in when I was at casino windsor last weekend, and every hundred dollars I pulled out, I was charged $108.00 in real money.

Dollar just set a new record low against the Euro as well. I should have opened that currency trading account a few months ago. Should have put my savings into foreign currency for now.

i bought a hamburger at a wendys in canada a few weeks ago.

Burger was 5.49, I handed the lady 7.00 (us) and got .39 back!

5.49+taxes+exchange rate=very expensive crappy burger from wendys

Last week a few exchange businesses in Toronto were buying dollars at $.92xx and selling at $.95xx. It's strange to think that this week they could be buying dollars at $.89xx or less.

I wouldn't be suprised if Meb Alls' late-night act ad Danny's in Windsor is strengthening their dollar.

Since prices are now cheaper in the US, why go to Canada for entertainment? Economically you are now better off to stay in the US and spend your money here.

because the drinking age is 19 there, so some can't drink here. Plus the titty bars are full nude with alcohol and crabs.

Yeah, forgot about that part. I'm too far past the drinking age to remember some people have to sneak into bars.

They already are. My wife works at Target in Saginaw, and has mentioned bus loads of them coming to shop lately. They go to Birch Run outlets then up the Saginaw for Target, Macy's, etc.
