    Going to New York

    I am going to New York on the 1st of march and am looking for good deals over there. The problem is there is no hotusadeals, do any of you know any bargains and/or deals across the pond.
    P.S Want to buy some Duncan yo-yos over there but don't know where I would buy them, my hotel is near the middle of New York if that helps.

    Any help welcomed.

    you'll find most electronics will be around two-thirds the UK price (ie, digital cameras, ipods, ps3, etc)

    but when you add on sales tax and the risk of customs charges its virtually the same

    There only so much you can bring back one because of weight of luggage for airport restrictions and 2,if you bring back more than the value allowed ( no idea what it is ) then you get taxed.
    What I've heard a lot of people do is say they buy clothes,remove tags and have no receipts,pay with cash too.If you planning on buying clothes,better still,have what you got on,a change outfit and buy the rest over there what you need for stay.
