    I'm sure i remember it saying on the dvdsoon website that they now mark all items as "gift" when shipping, but i can't see it on their site anymore, can anyone confirm this?

    And more importantly, i heard that items marked as gift are free from customs up to £36 instead of £18, which would mean i could buy my £34 Nightmare On Elm Street box set without getting stung, is this correct?

    Thanks

    Not seen that anywhere. It's a bit hit and miss with DVD Soon. Some of my recent deliveries have had $0.00 as the value, but others have the full amount.

    If they do mark it as a gift, the same as a certain Australian DVD company does, the customs limit does go upto £36 but I thought marking titles as gifts was one of the things they stopped first?
