Amazon won't ship my faucet?

Picked out a nice American Standard Stainless Steel faucet with a pull down sprayer, and was planning to swap out the stock plastic faucet when I find myself at home. During checkout it generated an alert that they were sorry, but could not ship it to my address. Whuh?

$45 more in local stores. I smell a rat at American Standard.

Amazon.com won't ship to Canada. Perhaps you need to log on to Amazon.Texas?

Only on some things. I have bought a fair bit of stuff off .com when it was not available on .ca. Mostly larger items though. This is where the sink for my 5.0 was sourced.

We bought the Anderson windows when building our cabin from Menards. Seven years later we were adding an addition to the cabin and went back to Menards to get the Anderson windows we needed.
No such luck ,Menards no longer sold Anderson Windows
The reason was that HD went to Anderson and made it clear that if Anderson wanted to sell windows at HD they could only sell them through HD. It's the Walmart business model.
We went to HD to buy the windows and found the price was now 20% higher than what we paid at Menards. My point is that it may not be American Standard or Amazon playing games
I ended up buying Marvin Windows from a local Lumber yard for less than the Andersons from HD and the local guy delivered them for free.

He would have noticed right away. The price would have been triple that of a US base BORG.

Were you connected to the internet in CA?

I set my VPN to a server in Canada and tried to buy
American Standard 4175.300.075 Colony Soft Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet, Stainless Steel - Touch On Kitchen Sink Faucets - Amazon.com

no go, Amazon read my ip address and said they couldn't ship. Changed the VPN to point to a US server, no problem.

Thomas,
You make a valid point. We do not realize that many of the IP addresses assigned by our local providers indicate near exactly where we are located. It does not take much for a retailer like Amazon to check your address and deny the sale. There are also allegations that web sites like (but not limited to) Amazon will show different prices depending on where you are geographically located.
