Combining comic book style and geeky in-jokes, HEROES is a stellar series that draws comparisons to fan favorites such as LOST and THE X-FILES. But thanks to its well-drawn characters and intricate plot, this drama reels in more than just superhero fans. HEROES revolves around the premise of seemingly ordinary people developing fantastic powers.

Forgot to give the discount code which is DVDTALK vaild till 25 november

Nice spot, good site and CHEAP airmail price ($8.95)

Just be aware that may not be customs friendly.

From personal experience, for customs purposes this will probably ship as the value of the goods at the site price, not the voucher discounted price.

What region is this?

Has anybody used that website before?

Others (such as Amazon.com and Amazon.co.ukMarketplace) have it for similiar price

Also Lost Season 3 as well for similiar price

I have used Deepdiscount twice before in their 20% sale and packages were marked down to the reduced price so there were no customs problems.

I bought mine from Amazon.com for $39.99, had to pay £12.12 customs. In the end I decided not to pay, after 3 weeks the item is returned to sender, and it seems Amazon even refund the postage. Though that said, it hasn't made it back there yet!! hehe. Picked up a copy on a recent trip, saved all the hassle :whistling:

There are only a few episodes left on the BBC run anyway, so unless you really wanna own this...

Thanks for the code. I have never ordered from them but used it to get the cheaper Scrubs season 6, so should have no customs problems.

Ordered this last night after a 'google' search, definitely a good deal with the discount code. Seems worth the risk of the hit-and-miss that is UK customs as will, on the discounted price, be below the £18 threshold. Also, bought House : Season 3 on the same site tonight with same discount code, similar price to Heroes (if anyone is at all, remotely interested :roll:) - Rep added OP

didnt get customs charge on mine from amazon.com. its quite rare when that happens and unluckly when it does, but given that amazon have offered this price from pre release 6 months ago this really isnt a deal to get too excited about.

however that said its a site I've not used before so will look to see whether the're some decent prices generally.:roll:

How does the customs work?

Anything over £18 is subject to duty and also the rip off post office charge for doing the job. So if your order is below £18 you should be Ok, roughly 37.99 us dollars.

I thought that the order value inc postage has to be under £18 . So in this case you will get stung approx 12 quid extra - wait for the region 2 in a couple of weeks

including postage?
ur having a laugh

As far as I know it is the value of the goods only . Read through the link, you should be clearer (maybe!)
customs.hmrc.gov.uk/cha…ent

To me it reads postage insurance etc. are included in the calculation unless the item is marked as a gift

Don't know if Martin's new article will help]http//ww…usa

If any one can work out how much in £ this will actually cost, I would be grateful as this all baffles me!

I have been avidly watching this on BBC2 and BBC3 and have to say, the series is just incredibe. Best import for a long time. I would still like to own it though.

Did anyone see it last night on BBC2?? Nathan - Silah??!! The boyfriend and I were gobsmacked!

Can anyone confirm if the HD-DVD link is the cheapest about at the moment?

I agree the series has been stunning....so cleverly constructed and the 45 minutes flies by.

As for Customs Charges....the £18 includes the postage fee paid too.......I know this because I used to work for Customs assessing duty on postal packages!

There should not be any fee payable as the value of the goods is £15.95 which is below the £18 threshold. If it was over £18 value then you would pay duty on the value of the goods plus the postage. There's a big thread in ]DVDForums on this.

In summary on the first page "Postage and packing must be remembered. If the total value of goods in the package that are liable to duty and VAT is less than £18 WITHOUT P&P, you will not be liable for a charge. If the total value of goods in the package exceeds £18, the VAT and duty is charged on the total value of the goods INCLUDING P&P"

Confirmation of this is given in point 2.3 at ]HM Customs

That means that this Heroes DVD Boxset, when purchased at the discounted price, should not attract any charges. YIPPEE! :w00t:
