Goat Simulator (PC) for £3.49 @ Amazon.com (Steam)

Yeah I know, the joke is dead. But I've been waiting for a decent price for this and I might just have to sink £3.49 on this silly little game. Cheapest I've seen it so far!

Use a US billing address when using Amazon.com. An address from a tax-free state such as New Hampshire is recommended.

Redeemable on Steam.

You don't vote on your opinions on the company you vote on if the price is a deal or not. Never heard of the game or know the price anywhere else so not voting however I don't have a problem with Amazon.com, ordered a few times off it :-)

Meh. A lot of people will be hit with the overseas charge which will make the normal 40% off on steam/GMG (4.19) cheaper. Good price at the moment I suppose.

Do you know if your goat freezes and falls over if it gets scared? Would buy it just for that :p

nothing to do with opinion. Its a fact that the deal is against TOS - perhaps that's why most of these deals are "expired" very quickly.
thanks

Old joke done a million times, I'm also 90% sure it's against Amazon's T&C's, *Insert some crap stimulation joke* not to mention the overseas charges.......

But on a realistic note for people living in reality, Heat added.

I am curious - can you highlight what part of the TOS this breaches? I am assuming it is something to do with supplying a billing address in a tax free state? But I can't see exactly what breach this causes. And does this breach apply if you have an acquaintance in a tax free state in the US make the purchase on your behalf as a gift?

Nice one OP, been admiring this from afar for a long time, heat added, I'll get me goat!

Baaah, I got all excited until I read the 2nd paragraph. :( Against the T&Cs and therefore illicit. Beware the temptation of the Dark Side, you know how you'll end up...

This isn't just against Amazon terms and conditions, it's actually evading import duty... so you're as good as...

Firstly - you are not evading import duty, because import duty would not be chargeable on this product. Further you are not evading VAT, because it would not be chargeable on this product:

For imports into the UK, there are minimum thresholds below which duty and VAT are waived.
Duty is not charged if either:
- the FOB value, i.e. the value of the goods excluding shipping and insurance cost, does not exceed £135
- the amount of duty payable does not exceed £9
VAT is not charged if:
- the FOB value, i.e. the value of the goods excluding shipping and insurance cost, does not exceed £15

So, there is nothing illegal about buying this product without paying duty or VAT on it.

And, again I ask - where in the Amazon Conditions of Sale does it say that purchasing this would be a breach?

You're funny. But without injecting a little logic and reasoning - this place will turn into a 24/7 Jeremy Kyle fest... We can't have that.

Thank you - so then my suggestion that you simply ask a friend in the US to make the purchase on your behalf perfectly valid. I send $6.00 to my mate Randy in the US, he buys the game and e-mails me the online game code. Job done, and no breaches of any terms, conditions or laws.

Looks ok to me - although the original posts suggests buying it yourself, which would obviously be agains the t&c

Well.... It could be taken as meaning that, it certainly says to use a US billing address. :p

Doesn't outright say put a US billing address on your account to do this, which is why my first thought was, I could ask a couple of my US friends if I wanted to buy this.... And I wouldn't have even thought about it were it not because of the original against the TOS post. (_;)

My first thought was to buy a house in New Hampshire, but then I read the game reviews and decided it probably wasn't worth it.

Plus I already have an Alaskan Hotel accidentally registered on my account.

I thought much the same as I guess you're thinking right now when I heard his name. But yes, amongst my state side friends there is a Randy. Though he lives in Hawaii, so I probably wouldn't ask him - everything seems to be ludicrously expensive in Hawaii.

N.H. is also the second worst state for real estate taxes, so definitely hold off on that one.

I had to look into buying better medication than NHS could supply me with last year, America was obviously one of the best places - It is true they were only charging tax on things/items over £15 pounds , not sure it its still the same this year. You can always contact our customs ppl they have a list of things that are ok and could give you a rough or exact quote on import prices/taxes.
