Over the past few months we’ve been hearing about some great deals that Canadian users are scoring when they order from US retailers. Everything from tires, scrap-booking supplies, furniture, bike equipment, auto parts, to sports equipment. One of the really interesting categories that Canadian Kinek users were saving on was Paintball gear. We’ve had customers order everything from paintball markers, CO2 tanks, upgrades, and paintballs in States and using our border KinekPoints as their US shipping address to save up to 50% on their orders.
Here is a great example of how much you can save by buying a Tippmann 98 paintball set in the US and having it shipped to one of Kinek’s border locations. The Tippmann 98 is one of the most popular paintball guns on the market due to its quality, reliability, ability to upgrade, and price:
Tippmann 98 Custom package in Canada: $220.00
– includes gun, 12 oz. tank, and mask
Tippmann 98 Custom package in United States: $154.00
– includes gun, 20 oz. tank, mask with anti-fog lens, hopper, gun oil, cleaning kit, and paintball harness with 6 140-round heavy duty tubes

Not only do you get much more buying the kit from the US, but you get it for 30% less. If you were to add in the cost of all the extra items, you would get it for 50% less than in Canada.
How can you take advantage of paintball deals like this?
Easy. Sign up for a (free) Kinek account and then choose one of our US border KinekPoint locations to act as your very own US shipping address. Then use that address, along with your Kinek#, when you order online. Your package will then be mailed to us and we’ll notify you when it arrives. We’ll then safely store it until you can drop by to pick it up.
