By the time you factor in...time, and gas and everything, it doesn't seem at all worth it to me. Plus dealing with potential warranty/return scenarios.
I know people who do that, and in Surrey it actually totally makes sense. It's like a 10 minute drive to the border for me and you go when your tank is near empty anyway. Gas is far cheaper in the States so you fill up there, pick up your package and you're off. Only real costs are rental of wherever you're getting the shipping to, and the time cost if the border lines are brutal.

I agree you'd be hooped if you needed to return whatever you got for some reason.
