Considering about 9500 seats in total were taken last year at SA, 4000 is a little bit harsh number for estimation, isn't it?
For Canadian/Canadian resident FSUers:
If you missed the announcement back in March (like I did), the import allowances changed as of 1 June 2012:
Out 24+ hours: $200 (from $50)
Out 48+ hours: $800 (from $400 for 48 and $750 for 7+days)
That harmonizes with US allowances
No changes for liquor and tobacco: limits stay the same and you have to be out 48+ hours.
I'm so glad I checked the form last night. Earlier in the month visiting Seattle I passed on purchases that would have put me over the old limits.
