$5.00 Handling fee

total $197.18 for 20 discs or averaging $9.86 each without shipping, with shipping of $29.34 works out to $11.33 each

Amazon Canada prices
14 blu-rays $352.99 or $25.21 each free shipping plus GST 5% $26.47 each
6 blu-rays not available in Canada, if assuming the same average price would work out to $529.49 so in theory I saved $302.97

Or enough for another 30 blus from Amazon UK
Just goes to show how ****ing ridiculous prices are for blu-rays in Canada. This is utter bullshit. I mean how the hell does it cost me significantly less to import a boxset of blus from the UK compared to picking it up from a local retail store. This is madness!
