  15. Canadians be aware, if you win and Cisco ships your flip camera they do not pay HST. i.e. Fedex or UPS will charge 13% HST to you. I got my flip camera from Cisco as an award but Fedex sent me invoice of CAD $50.10 and they told that shipper has set option "Bill recipient for additional Tax". So I have to pay this amount.

  16. I would love so much to win one of these to record the holidays.
