I was in Curacao recently and purchased a watch on credit with my shiny new Little Switzerland credit card. The sales person touted that Canadians were also able to apply and voila sure enough I was approved in minutes. Problem is, their only methods of payment appear to be from US banks. They won't even take my MBNA Mastercard over the phone. WTF?? I'm trying to figure out what to do before my first payment date comes due. What kind of financial institution can't take online payments via credit card? Paypal? Payee transfers...nothing! Any other Canadians have a Comenity credit card with an American Store? What do you do?
