Hi, first deal, so hope this is ok. Amazon.com have a 20 hd-dvds at 47% off, most at $15.99. Two of will cost more than £2 less than £18, so customs duty won't be an issue if ordered two at a time. Postage is $3.99/shipment + $2.49/dvd.So total cost for two including postage is $40.95 (i think), which is about £19.92 according to xe.com. Hd-dvds are region-free, so this is a great price.

Erm... NO switch maestro you know debit cards :x

I've not used a debit card to buy online for years, in fact I only use my debit card nowadays to take out cash to spend in places that don't take cards. (pubs & work canteen mostly)

As long as you pay off your balance every month you get an extra 1% off every purchase by using an egg money card (or similar) and also get extra protection for any purchase over £100.

sorry to continue the wandering off topic....

Dont use a debit card online, you have no protection if orders go missing or your details are leaked.

Its pure stupidity to not use a credit card online.

Plus Amazon.com are a US company who obviously wont use switch. You can use a visa delta debit card however.

thats the bit I strongly disagree with these days, it used to be the case but nowadays credit cards can be wisely used to save money as long as you know what you are doing with them.

for over 2 years now I have only been using credit cards to buy things, this has nothing to do with having or not having the money but more to do with the free money (cashback) and extra protection you get from using it.

I have not been charged any interest in these 2 years or any late payment fee's. With online banking you can even pay off your purchase before you buy it from your current account.

Unless your bad at managing money I really see no reason for not using credit cards these days?

The important thing is what you said here

if i dont have the money then i dont buy


which I defo belive in it's just that you can make that choice with or without credit cards the same as you can with an overdraft or borrowing money from mates it'll all land you in trouble if you dont' have the cash in the first place.

Anyway I'm lecturing you now for no reason and you seem perfectly happy so I'll shut up, each to thier own :)

Sorry to rabble on it's just a favourite topic of mine at the mo.
worto.

Because they have it wrong. Thats their general scrawl through from the DVD section.

As true as black is black, HD DVD's are not region coded.

I didnt see him bitching, just explaining that it wont take debit or switch, which would save people time who were going to create an account only to found out that they couldnt purchase.

What I do see is a patronising atitude from you, a "proper debit card",:roll:

But a switch/maestro card is not a true debit card like a Delta one so he does have a point. And he was bitching by saying credit cards=debt which is patently false. I would say online purchase via switch/maestro=stupid :giggle:

You can only order 1 at a time or customs will add on about another £3.75 to each HD DVD you buy

- This is goin from lots of past experience ordering from Amazon.com\marketplace etc.

NOT WORTH IT...

Having said that if you go to the UK amazon site and order through the marketplace there you can actually get a better deal than this, even ordering one at a time.
#23
I use my pretend debit card all the time and have for years with no problems whatsoever and some people don't want a credit card for their own reasons.

There are easy ways to buy from the US without having a credit card !!! I've done it loads of times.

People who think it's their business to preach to others how to pay for things = stupid

Thank OP for post.

Who says you can't use a debit card for this deal?? I ordered 2 HD-DVDs 2 weeks ago with a Debit card.

Also, As long as you make sure your order doesnt go above £18, then you won't pay VAT.

Also (v3.0) So, according to someone, because I (and millions of other people who CANT get a credit card) use a Debit card for our purchases, we must be all stupid! Credit cards do have more protection, but to say that Debit cards have NO protection, is, well Stupid! I have had a few occasions got my money back through my bank or VISA.

That statment makes me feel better cos I have no means of getting a credit card cos Im a student.

I said online purchases btw, theres a difference.

The number of retailers I could mention that have had online security breaches, have gone bust or are just plain crooks is frightening.

DVDSoon
DVD Pacific
Reel.com
Ringos
DVDCrave
absound

are just the ones that come to me that have security breaches or went bust owing people money, those that ordered using debit cards lost out in the majority of cases.

If you are happy to forego the protection a credit card gives you then fair enough. Its bad enough sometimes getting the credit card comapnies to act never mind the debit card people.

You can order upto around $36 worth before shipping and escape customs, which mean yous can get 2 $15.99 titles or one $15.99 and a $18.49 title without worry.

Its not a question of people being happy not to use a credit card, in a lot of cases people CANT get a credit card (and some people on this planet, relatives included, SHOULDNT have a credit card :x ). So its a case of not having the choice in the first place.

Im quite happy to use my debit card online (I know I can still perform a chargeback via a simple form, from my bank-if no item arrives, only had to do it once for a purchase that didn't materialise, and another time when a ATM charged me for a withdrawal I didnt make), and I'd certainly be happy using it with Amazon.com/co.uk

Well, the method i used to buy from Amazon would probably suit you too: https://www.3vcash.com/how.html . Essentially, it's a way of buying prepaid virtual credit card, works for credit card purchases where you don't have to pay in person (basically website purchases. Its fairly safe because of the limited ammount of money attached to each visa number you buy. Buying a number worth larger than £20 cost money, £2 for up to £100,and £5 for up to £200 (max), but they have a promotion atm giving you free £5 and £10 voucher from amazon.co.uk depending on much you top up, so if you us amazon uk, then you actually gain a bit when buy a number.

Finally, as i said at the start, hd dvds are region free, regardless of what a single website says, and goods worth less than £36 aren't eligible for customs, so those are nonissues :)

Switch/Maestro, is the original debit card. Visa Delta, Electron and Solo are much newer additions to the field.

When I clicked through to the checkout Amazon had already converted the $ prices into £ for me. I had the option of converting back to $s and did so as I suspect that the rate of exchange I receive from my credit card company will be better than the one offered by Amazon. In my view, this looks like Amazon.com trying to pull a fast one as the $ appears to be in freefall in comparison with the £. Unless anyone knows differently I would suggest converting payments to $s rather than using Amazon's sterling payment facility.:roll:
