    Yes, I'm aware of the currency difference. Which is why I agreed that S$156 is a very good price, since prices in Singapore are usually higher than in the US.

    So how much did the combo cost you? Did you manage to get the $300 price from CP?

    CP has this funky pricing system where they over charge for EVERYTHING unless you ask for the actual price/bargain. i think its a screwy system but i don't own CP. so before you go to CP check the "standard" price else where and make sure you aren't paying more. e.g. a stofen omni bounce costs about $30 at alan/john 3:16, but at CP they charge $60

    sorry just to have a better understanding...

    SGD 174 + GST meaning inclusive or subject to?

    meaning final price is 174 or 186.18?
