Innotab case in Blue - £15.50 delivered from Amazon.COM

Found 27th Nov 2011
Well, it goes something like this.

Managed to get hold of an Innotab for a friend who wasn't having much luck getting one.
They then announced they could do with a case for it!
Cases seem to be harder to find than the units themselves?
The v-tech website did say they would have stock from yesterday for the blue one and next week for the pink one, but they've both now changed to OOS.
Had a look around and they seem to be about £30 to £40 on fleabay, so not really that bothered.

Happened to be looking at something else on Amazon.COM and did a search and they are showing lots of stock of the blue cases.
They did have both colours but the pink one's gone out of stock tonight as I've been looking.

Anywho, they're $14.99 + shipping which seems to come in at around the £15.50 mark depending what the exchange rate is when you place your order (you can order from them in £'s so you know how much it's going to be without relying on your CC's strange exchange rate)
And it's under the £18 import duty threshold?

Although they are saying a 8-14 day delivery window, it also states that if you are ordering this it will arrive before 25 December?

Seems to be the cheapest way to get one of these at the minute, unless someone out there knows any different?
It's nothing to do with me, you pays your money and takes your chances, but thought it worth the effort to post?

Won't appeal to everyone, might just help make someone's Christmas?

Vtech UK website is showing in stock in blue just now for £12.99?

It says postage is £2.50 for accessories, so £15.49 delivered and no worries about the delivery time or customs.
I just had to pay £11.35 for a customs charge (including the Royal Mail £8 handling fee) for something from the US, the item only cost me $17.99 with free delivery. Which is well under the customs import duty threshold, but the way it works is I have to pay it upfront then claim it back (from customs and RM) after providing evidence of the cost, otherwise the Royal Mail return to sender.
Basically legal blackmail

So it does

Its been down as coming into stock Friday just gone and then it changed to out of stock yesterday so just thought it was out of stock and this was the only deal I could find on one, and I'd looked.

Will have to see if the pink one comes back into stock at the end of this week as it originally said it was going to on the website?

Thanks for the info

I order from amazon.com all the time. I ordered two of these and they arrived in four days. Never had a problem with customs. You need to check sender clearly labels package. They also have the pink in stock cause i got one of each.

I just found out the duty rate has dropped to £15 (as of November apparently) and is no longer £18. So watch you don't get caught out by a £1 or two!
