    It's not about cost, it is actully about export controls and customs regulations regarding dead and preserved animals. It is illegal to transport live or dead animals/insects even if they are preserved. Not trying to stop anyone from helping the poster but be very aware that the fines and penalties could be very stiff including jail time if your caught. Be sure to look into it first and talk to the post office about the regulations.

    Hopefully the linc works, but this is how silly it can get

    Actually, I contacted UD via phone to ask about the redemption issue. They are the source that suggested that I have it sent to a US postal address and then have it mailed to Canada

    Of course they would, once they ship it to a US address it's not there problem if something happens, try to get them to write that in an email..... It's your risk

    Something like this would probably be less nerve-wracking than trusting customs by mail. Get someone close to you to drive it up, or even someone close to the border willing to drive it up and send it through CP only, if you're nowhere near anyone.
    Patiently waiting for someone to bring back sax solos and keytars non ironically.
