Standard International Shipping for 1 dvd is $6.48 (surface mail 9-36 business days). Single dvds won't be subject to customs (upto $40 or so should be safe). If you order over £18 worth customs may send you a bill later (although you'll save on shipping and the exchange rate is great).

Just a heads up for those not ordered from america before.

You won't save enough on the shipping to justify the customs charge, if you get caught though. For example, I placed 4 orders, which meant I had to pay an extra $3.99 * 4 = $16, ie. around £8 or so. If I'd ordered all of those together, the Post Office charge would've been £8 itself, and that's before you get to the actual customs/VAT charge.

A good place to look is here:

They have detailed info about customs charges. I'd recommend keeping orders below £18 (so I'd say you want to make sure that you're not ordering more than, say, $34 of goods, excluding postage in any one order).

The Office S1 (US version) Region 2 is £4.99 delivered from HMV.

Possibly a couple of weeks. It can depend.

Spot on. I thought RM charged £10 actually lol. When you say $3.99??? The delivery seems to be more than that... unless it was just the set I looked at?

Still you can get say both series of House MD for under £20 delivered airmail (roughly).

I would usually order from overseas only for things I cant get here, or if its a really decent saving... or special special editions ;)

Well, pay $3.99 plus $2.49 per item in the order, for postage. So if you ordered them all together you'd still ahve to pay the $2.49 for each item, but you'd only have one $3.99 charge, if that makes sense?

Surely it would be much easier to just buy the DVDs from the UK??
#13
How much more difficult is it to put your details into an american website rather than a uk one? If it's cheaper to buy something from USA it's easier.
#14
If you have an Amazon.co.uk account it will be very simple (it has your details already lol)

Not everything is available over here though (for example, I ordered Wonderfalls from Amazon last week, that's never going to get a UK release).

Besides, if the DVDs are cheaper, what difference does it make? It may take longer to get to you, but that doesn't really matter (unless it's something you're desperate for). I remember in the old days, when DVD releases over here were complete rubbish in realtion to the American releases. We used to import a load back then. Now only tend to if it's cheap.

I've ordered 14 boxsets, 6 films and 1 book from Amazon in the last week, for a total of around £150 delivered, some of which wouldn't have been available over here anyway. A pretty good haul in my opinion.

By the way, Death Proof is currently $9.99 at Amazon.com (having gone down from $13.49, which it was yesterday). There really are some great bargains to be had. I think it ends on Sunday, so it's well worth checking it out.

Yeah the prices are changing a bit, House Season 2 has jumped from $12.99 to $20.99

does amazon US ship to UK? if so there will be some nice hardware deals on that i wouldnt mind.
#18
Not sure about hardware to be honest. It should say on the website i it will ship hardware internationally. It doesn't ship everything outside the US.
