Question

This would be why amazon.co.uk is going out of business, they don't make enough money off their sales...

You got a good deal there, but it works the other way as well. We do not get your gold box deals and your BOGOF. We do have B2G1 on older films though.

Count your blessings and I hope you enjoy the films.

I buy a lot of vinyl from the UK site as I find they have better deals there. However, before buying I do alot of checking around and make sure that I am indeed getting a deal (exchange rate, shipping costs). I can't comment on the BD's as I've never bought from outside of North America.

Did the same thing musself. I go to Amazon UK as sort of a reference point for pricing, and if they blow the US site out of the water, I'll buy from there. Not sure why they're able to charge so much less for their stuff, but I'm all for saving a buck or two.

I just got the Batman Anthology for $28 - which included shipping to the US. Price is $75 at Amazon US, which you can get free shipping for.

It was a great deal, and took about a week. I've never imported before, but in the future I'll check there first before ordering, the deals are just phenomenal.

The main reasons for Amazon UK being so much cheaper:
  • Studio discounting of older titles is more widespread in the UK.
  • Many "UK" e-tailers (who actually ship from the Channel Islands, Switzerland, or even Hong Kong) try to get their box set prices below 18 to avoid VAT (value-added tax) when it enters the UK.
  • Amazon UK refunds VAT on all orders shipped outside the EU; most other "UK" e-tailers can't do that because of their VAT-avoidance scheme. (Amazon ships UK orders from Jersey via Indigostarfish; their VAT savings on UK orders pays for free shipping. Non-UK orders ship from the UK; VAT is adjusted to local rates on EU orders and refunded on non-EU orders. Many of their competitors ship ALL orders from outside the UK, so they have no VAT to refund.)
  • Their shipping rates to North America are less than many of their competitors--including Amazon's own French & German sites.

Default Released earlier in the UK

Another plus is that many titles are released in the UK before they ever make it to the U.S.

I bought the UK unedited version of Pirate Radio titled The Boat That Rocked, 3 months prior to the U.S. release. It was only about $27 including air shipping.

I pre-ordered the new Nanny McPhee sequel for $22 which will be released in the UK in July. This film will not even play in US cinemas until August!

And still a lot cheaper on many things.

Is business overhead that much lower overseas? Or is markup just that much higher over here, because they think US consumers can/will pay it?

Its a back and forth issue caring by product. thats why i check both sites before ordering. the only advantage of Amazon US for me is Amazon prime...But if Amazon UK had a program like prime for customers outside the Uk I'd buy into that myself too
