Red Joycons (From Mario Odyssey bundle) £71.29 delivered (including import fees) from Amazon Japan

Not a deal for everyone unless you are after these particular joycons. They’re currently only available in Japan and at the moment, they can be imported for around the same price as a set of joycons here. This include Global Priority Shipping which will take about 5 days to be delivered.

There are no import fees to be added to this on delivery as it is paid upfront. (You may have them refunded if customs don’t claim them too, as has happened to myself in the past.) No extra tax, no extra vat, nothing. It’s £71.29 all in.

Very expensive. 60£ delivered on any Japan website. OK with Amazon Japan you have your item delivered in 2-3 days but does it worth spending 10£ for that ?

Link?

Are you also at risk of import fees (which then will slap on a courier charge on top)?

Are you drunk.?


Why?
YesAsia / CdJapan / AmiAmi / etc...
Very slow shipping = nearly 0 risk of custom fees. Only fast delivery methods like FedEx, EMS, DHL, etc... is 100% customs.

I am not against taxes but 71£ for Joy-Con that's way way too much.

They’re sold out on CDJapan. YesAsia says “usually ships in 21 days” so sounds like they are out of stock there too. I have been stung many times on slow shipping methods as well. It’s not really 0 risk.

Either way, this is just the same price shipped. It’s just the import fees that make it more expensive than AmiAmi. Plus, you get it sent by a fast and fully trackable method. I’m happy enough to pay the extra and deal with Amazon instead.

Thanks for the heads up on alternatives though. Going to have a look through their sites for a new Gamecube pad as they have risen to silly prices over here.
Not sure why it’s going cold. I thought these joycons are pretty collectible amongst Switch fans. Heat added Biddy earlier.

I thought the same mate, and for only around £6 more than you pay for a neon pair over here. Plus with the bonus of dealing with Amazon and fast shipping too.

I went for them anyway. Fingers crossed the import fees get refunded in a couple of months too.

Everyone? It's just my two cents.

But looking at the temp I'm not the only one thinking that.

Don't take it personally mate, just don't see a deal here despite you folks mentioning they are collector's items.

No doubt they will be available over here in future at £20 cheaper.

So ​Amazon Japan have refunded your import fees deposits? Just interested as I've had various items shipped from Amazon US and Japan but never received a refund.

Anyway I have to say Amazon Japan have been fantastic to deal with. They ship with DHL so your item arrives in days and unlike retailers over here they actually package items to avoid postal damage, as opposed to just chucking them in a box with (if you're lucky) a bit of paper. What a novel approach eh?

All things considered - the item itself, Amazon Japan's service, the import fees deposit, the postage costs and speed: this is a good price.

I’m not taking the deal going cold personally at all. As I said, it’s not a deal for everyone and I actually expected it to go cold. What I took issue with, is your comment being a bit snarky.

Too many people on here come flying in to comment at deal posters with aggression/abuse/snarkiness when they have simply posted a deal to help others. They aren’t getting paid to do what they do and are doing it to help others. I posted this to help those looking for these. Comments by people like @k4ne are constructive and helpful. Yours and @Ghostrecon are not.

Yes, I am fully aware they went cold last year. I posted this because they are now cheaper than they were last year and they are sought after by some.

It’s not a guarantee, but yes, I have had many refunded. It all depends on if customs here claim them. This is a recent order I made from Amazon US.

Nobody is being snarky, if you feel like I was then I dunno what to say. I should be able to vote and share my thoughts or opinions on any deal without people being offended (as long as I'm not trying to offend obviously)

Personally I don't see the deal and I would have put this "deal" in the dedicated switch thread in misc.
Edited by: "Snakeyes646" 11th Mar
Even for a collector it's not a deal is it? Surely a collector would still "gulp" at pressing the buy now button, it's too much cash for what it is.
Good lord, cold
Voted Cold. Don’t like posters attitude

@Biddy2 what I have learnt on this site is that people now vote on opinion not on best deals available. They see something and if they think it’s overpriced they vote it’s cold. But the one thing they fail to do is give an alternate cheaper option.
Like you said if someone wants these this is the best price going and the best it’s been. It doesn’t matter if it’s overpriced or not it’s still the best available deal so a good time to buy it.

It’s not for me but it’s a good price for what’s on offer.

The fact the RRP is a bit steep is not relevant here or any bias against a “Nintendo tax”

Just because it's currently the best price doesn't make it a deal pal, hukd doesn't or at least shouldn't work like that.

Looking at their feedback, a few people say they aren’t shipping from Ireland. Whether that is true or not, I’m not sure.

If it is from Ireland, you won’t get hit with any fees. If it is China, then there is a risk of getting 20% added on plus a carrier charge of up to £16, depending on the carrier.

Thanks but seems they aren’t shipping from Ireland according to their feedback so you are risking a customs bill ordering from them. Could potentially turn that £60 to around £88 upon delivery. I personally wouldn’t risk it, but up to others if they wish to.

Not being funny mate, but you took my words in the OP and made a snarky comment using them. If you can’t see the difference between what you said, and simply saying “This is too much. Cold” or “This isn’t a deal” then I don’t know what to tell you.

Nobody is taking your freedom to vote and give an opinion, it’s just a case of if you don’t have anything nice to say, it’s best to say nothing.

Not everyone goes into misc either so it has a better chance of being seen in deals. As I’ve already said, I’m not bothered by it going cold. I posted it for those that wanted these and want to deal with Amazon without risk of any fees upon delivery. It’s up to you what value you place on that. I’d rather pay my VAT than risk being slapped with nearly £30 extra upon delivery.
