    to canadians who've been to botcon b4, how do you claim your expenses? do the dealers give reciepts, do you estimate what you spent, or do you just flat out lie how much you spent. other than valid store purchases, and stuff you have recipets for, how does botcon purchases fit in to the whole duty things and such?

    I just estimate the cost of my purchases. No receipts. Because I'm in the US for several days when attending Botcon, they rarely hassle you and let you pass without having to pay customs. However, if you spend a few hundred dollars and are their for less than 48 hrs, chances are you will be pulled to the side and pay customs fees on all of your purchases.
