To continue with my previous questions can I pay for my son's top ups in with a US based credit card? I emailed and will call 7-11 tomorrow too and try to find out but my friend leaves tomorrow for Vancouver so I need to know soon. Thanks!!

It has to be a Canadian (non-Quebec) based card. My relative from California tried it up here before, and it didn't work.

Thank you! Oh dear. I guess I'll have to find a way to get someone in Canada to buy his vouchers. What a hassle. I guess they don't take paypal...

Many people can help you out with this.

Make sure you buy voucher before the end of September for bonus 25 dollars

Thanks. That's good to know. My friend is buying the voucher and sim card in Vancouver this weekend. I think $125 should last him a while!

Is it still their policy not to accept US credit cards? I am going to Canada 1 day after my credit expires, next week. Will they grant a day's grace?

They still don't accept US credit cards, or even Quebec based credit cards. There is a minimum 7 day grace period if your account expires.
