OK, so it was late last night and I'll now think about the UK prices without tax..... £200 = £167 = $232 which sells for $200 in the US Lets see what Germany pays for the same product, with their 19% sales tax: €205 = €172 = $211 which sells for $200. Obviously they have to factor in some fluctuations in currency, so I'm thinking along the lines that they can see Brexit going really badly and the £ reaching closer to $1.1, hence their pricing structure now. Yet some other manufacturers have managed to avoid this. I just find it very intriguing.
The post I was replying to was quoting US prices before tax versus UK price with tax, to say Sonos charges substantially more in UK. I remived UK tax, so as to compare tax free prices,Tax is irrelevant to the post I am responding too as it is out with Sonos control.
Not true..... you can't just take that blanket approach to the cost I'm afraid. In the US the states are allowed to set their own rates of sales tax. The difference in sales tax compare to the UK is big but ranges as well. If you made this purchase in Delaware then I'm afraid you need to add the full 20% back on. In most states you would be adding around 14-16% of that tax back on I'm afraid (it's fairly easy to avoid the local surcharges). So you can't just take 20% off.
So how come other companies, like Amazon, still manage to build in that difference in the price yet Sonos can't? Even if it was just $10 it's still something to say we understand there is a difference in price. I fully understand tax, and also tax in the US as I'm a regular visitor (my advice if you're in Philly or Washington, go to Delaware for your electronics ;)). I fully understand international trading costs, working for a global large enterprise for many a year. Here's the thing, the EUR standard price is 205EUR.... that equates to around £185, compared to £200 in the UK. The import taxes are no different because it's the EU and we all know they can't have trade deals with Malaysia different in one country. The EU countries are paying less for their Sonos fix. I notice neither the EU or the US have a free trade agreement with Malaysia, meaning we're on WTO tariffs for both. You believe that we're not seen as an excuse to add to the cost, I believe otherwise.
Bought 2 for £300 from currys last month, and richer sounds had similar deal, so not the best price they’ve been if you’re looking to buy more than 1.

PS4 Pro Fifa ‘18 bundle £246 @ UK Dapper£246
Can’t comment on ‘UKDapper’ but they have good reviews and accept PayPal so should be protected
Same here. Obviously was too good to be true, but it was worth a try. I replied to them asking for a refund. (skeptical)
Just got this email: "Hi, We have noted on this listing there is a error on the title. This is PS4 1 TB + FIFA 18 with Ultimate Team Icons & Rare Player Pack. Please advise if you wish to continue with order refund as seems like the web team added pro to the title without knowing there is two types. We do not stock the pro or 500GB model only the standard 1TB with Fifa 18. Sorry for this and please let us know so we can refund or process order. Thanks UKD"
That's true but in the URL it does say pro. But let's see what happens.
Let us know what turns up!
Only the pic is a pro...not mentioned in title etc

Shame they won't ship these QC25 to the UK https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00VW7U8X4/ref=dp_olp_all_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=all
No, but will have a look when I'm back at work (Not at Dixons I hasten to add!). Alternatively if you phone them they'll tell you over the phone https://www.dixonstravel.com/ look for the storefinder which gives a phone number.
did you notice the price of the in-ear QC20 earphones? Thanks in advance
£279 at Dixons Travel in airports with zero risk might be the better option.
Thanks, just bought it with next day delivery. Have some heat, fingers crossed it's legit.

This is my third order from these guys. I know the odd person has said they never received their goods, but they do have a good reputation on TrustPilot. For £2.51 delivered it's g… Read more
I have had loads leak on me they never did before, the excuses Duracell come up with is likened to dell boy!!! I used to swear by Duracell for not leaking, not anymore I swear they will all leak and they do, I've had torches, clocks, remotes, and a Wii fit wrecked, when they leaked in my expensive camera I went nuts and had a rant at Duracell.....but same old answer you mixed them......no I did not, anyway it was never a problem before they started to make cheapo leaky batteries!! Will never use them again, Kodak or Sony from poundland way better! Eneloop are the best batteries ever, I only use these now.
For several good deals, go to www.cpc.co.uk and get 40 Ultra Alkaline AAA (BT0631187) or AA (BT0615587) cells for £7.65 plus VAT post free. They have loads of other makes and sizes, including Philips 36 mixed pack at £6.59 plus VAT post free Order Code BT 063587.
ordered 3 days ago and received today, all looks good but not tested yet, I will give the wife a couple to test later
As per previous post code no longer valid so a little more expensive now
Did anyone actually receive their batteries? I still haven't received mine and no answer to emails.
I purchased some of these, on receipt I noticed that the colour of the batteries didn't seem to be exactly the same as those that I've had previously. I therefore sent photos etc to Duracell who have confirmed that they are genuine. Seems that Duracell have moved production from the Far East to Europe and there is a minor change in colour. Good to get confirmation!
Did anyone who ordered these actually receive them? I placed an order on 8 Oct for 3 boxes and nothing has arrived so far. I've also emailed them to ask about it and they haven't replied. I'm not sure if I should open a PayPal complaint or if I should wait a bit longer? Any advice? Lori x
That's unfortunate, as I got mine .. 2 lot's of these I ordered! (at the time?), if I'm not mistaken?.
