    This isn't fair!!!

    I am after a kindle as my mums bday present.

    On amazon.com they work out at around £87 due to conversion rate. However you cannot get it shipped to the uk from amazon.com

    How annoying is that? So I have to pay more from an identical site for the same product.

    That's not fair!

    once you have paid for vat, shipping and the post office charge it probably works out the same anyway!

    Taxes, cost of living, more competitive market.............i could go on forever.

    Maybe companies also factor in longer eu warranty on many items.
    Get over it and don't buy it if its too much

    Plus most states will have to pay sales tax on that amazon price so works out a comparable price to the UK one.

    Apple TV = $99
    or £99 to us.

    Some companies are just beyond a joke sometimes.
