Get Amazon products for price BEFORE VAT increase

Not sure how long this will last or if it works with everything but worth a shot.

If you go onto an item you will see the new price of the product. For instance, I was looking at a product. Yesterday it was £140, today it is now £160.

If you click on the New & Used bit, Amazon UK will show in this list, however the price doesn't include the new rise in prices. So buy it from this list.

I have just bought a product that was £140 but is now £160. I went on the New & Used list and bought it till was and saved myself £20!

This looks like a bit of a hit or miss and depends on the product.

Hope you don't get a nasty shock!
Guess if you do, though, you could just return it at Amazon's expense anyway.

VAT increase wouldn't effect Amazon since they are offshore based??


That is a good point. However I feel they might be cashing in on this as the prices for everything have risen to accommodate these increases in VAT. Was looking at Shutter Island Blu-Ray. I paid £10.06 for it and its is now £10.58

thats a big 2.5% rise!

I know. They were £144 when I checked at 9am this morning. Just looked after dinner and they are £160...

Even so, the New & Used price still shows £140

... and the rise is 2.5% of the before VAT price, so only 2.13% needs to be added to the "with 17.5% VAT" price.

Amazon aren't offshore based though. Unless they ship something from their "partner" (Indigostarfish in Jersey) then anything that isn't exempt from VAT will have it included in the price. :)

I don't think that's an issue anyway as Jersey is presumably still in the EU. That £18 duty threshold only applies to items being imported from outside the EU... as I understand it.

Jersey isn't part of the EU.
Hence the tax loophole.
