As a rule of thumb-when paying with a US issued mastercard or visa-is it better to rely on Visa/Mastercard exchange rate or Amazon exchange rate?

In general, yes, but from the previous page:

If you have a Mastercard card and your bank uses Mastercard's exchange rate use this calculator (Select GBP as the base currency) https://www.mastercard.com/global/currencyconversion/

If the number given is higher than Amazon UK's exchange rate then buy in USD, if it is lower than Amazon UK's exchange rate then buy in GBP.
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2̶0̶1̶4̶ ̶2̶0̶1̶5̶ 2016 the other half of them may finally come out for PS4.

I always pay in local currency esp with a 0% Forex fee card. The only time in 5-6 years where Amazon converter has been cheaper was last week when the bottom fell out and Amazon converter caught up to the drop faster than VISA/MC so for a couple days Amazon was slightly cheaper. I suspect it the rates are rising Amazon rate goes up much faster than Visa as well though it may be a while before that it put to the test.

With a 3% fee card that gap has always been much narrower/disappears so the first thing you need to do is find out about your CC.

Ex. today a 0% card has a 1 cents better exchange than Amazon, for a 3% card Amazon is 3 cents better. Once Visa catches down to the latest fall then the gap shifts substantially toward Visa

I pre-ordered The Defenders and Capt America Civil War and I used Visa exchange rate. My card won't be charged until september when items will be shipped...Crossing my fingers I made the right choice.

Here you go -- new lowest price ever. I think it would be extremely difficult to get this price for the US set even used. The only way I can think of to get lower would be BN40% sale +Mmeber+30% coupon for BF and at least a 15% discounted Gift Card.

BOFA Extended 3D Bluray Amazon UK

around $18-18.60 if you order as a single item and depending on your payment.

Thanks. I ordered it along with something else. Strangely the L12.99 price dropped to L10.83 in my cart (I mean "basket") which was fine by me. I guess there must have been some promotion I didn't know about. My order says "Sold by Amazon EU S.a.r.L.". I guess that's Amazon UK, but I don't remember that SARL part before. Shouldn't it say Amazon ex-EU(Brexit)?

I used the COF VISA in "pounds sterling" which I think is what I need to get the better rate, though I doubt I'll get 1.29 which was today's rate. I know there was a discussion with kenbenobi on this earlier, but I didn't totally understand it. Regardless, I assume paying with the COF VISA in pounds would work out cheaper than using Amazon's exchange rate paying in dollars regardless how VISA screws around with the rates?

BTW, what's your opinion on Star Wars: The Clone Wars series for $43.22 according to this thread? Do you think it's a good deal?

I would've ordered more stuff if I knew what to order.

If the items posts Friday the std conversion rate appears to a hair over 1.30 which would make it an even better deal. Not sure if your COF has a For.Exch fee or not, but it still shouldn;be be any more than Amazon regardless.

If you like the Clone WArs set, it's an excellent deal for 5 seasons.

The drop in price when you go through checkout isn't a promo, but the removal of the VAT (20% national sales tax) we don;t pay.

I don't have Clone Wars series, but have it sitting in my cart. Current price, I believe, is the lowest it has been. But with my recent purchase of ST:TNG, I will most likely hold off on this one. I also have been keeping an eye on Hobbit BOFA 3D EE and Boxtrolls 3D. Both are good prices, but I like digital copies as well, and not being set up to burn blu rays yet, I don't like messing with UK digital copies - or at least not familiar enough to properly copy the digital copies to keep on hand.

Is a pre-order a good idea when you don't know if they're Region Free?

Only issue with buying Marvel abroad is no Digital Copy and no DMR points, for $3 more id rather buy stateside and maybe even get a retail exclusive copy from target etc. Even if you dont use the digital copy can easily be sold release day for bare minimum of $5, and $6-$8 with retail exclusive digital stuff.

$3 more? try higher
Did you check the pre-order price on Capt America Civil War in 3D/Bluray? Sure you lose the Digital Copy whe nyou pre-order from AmazonUK, but you also end up with more money in your pocket

Every Marvel 3D release on opening day has been $20 since Thor 2. Just FYI thats the standard release not steelbook, BBY started jacking up the price with Antman on those. (They preorder price was always 25-30, and then drops to 19.99)

Target had Civil War 3D For $25 + $10 GC a while back too, and that was before a price drop.

Antman 3D release day price $19.99, Nov 29, 2015

No if you are buying post release date then sure go UK if price matters more.

But on release the better overall deal is stateside.

From what I have experienced, most Marvel releases in 3D/Bluray are average $29.99 because they also include DVD and Digital Copy, I assume. I dont care for the DVD and I can live without the UV code.
