I'm moving to the US from Canada but I plan to keep my CR premium, so I tried to change my billing information. Simple enough, just added a new US card and change to that. However, my premium status still shows my billing rate in Canadian dollars, so I don't think this is quite what I want.

Anyone handled this before? Is there any easy way to change my plan so that it's using USD (an extra location setting???) or do I have to cancel my recurring payment and add the plan again next month?

The subscription in CAD should be cheaper, even taking currency exchange fees into account. Are you sure that you want to switch to USD?

A fair point, I should probably go and actually calculate that. I haven't actually looked at what my currency fees would be in the event it stayed the same, probably something in the area of 3% I would imagine with my bank. However, given how small the difference in cost would be, plus tying myself to Canadian currency (which so happens to work fairly well now for me now thanks to the exchange rate), I still don't know whether it makes sense.

I suppose it could be something I could keep as is for now until it makes less sense, but it's probably worth knowing what I would need to do if I wanted to change it.
