    www.dvdmode.com - free delivery if 2 or more discs ordered and if you check out their prices you'll not stray too far from them too often.

    I am based in Dublin and buty on a regular basis from the following:

    www.ezydvd.com (Australia) ... very good
    www.amazon.com (USA) ... shipping a bit expensive but overall less expensive than buying from the UK.
    www.dvdboxoffice.com (Canada) ... free shipping worldwide. Excellent.
    www.dv-depot.com (Canada) ... good prices but very slow completing orders.

    Note www2.cdwow.ie are not based in Ireland ... they are based in Hong Kong but they do offer an excellent service but you need to check that you are ordering R1 rather than R2.

    OK, good tip for ALL Irish CD-wow customers.

    Prices on the .ie site are more expensive than from the .com site - check it out. Even at a conservative £0.625/€1 exchange rate (it's now >£0.64/€1) they work out approx €1 dearer :eek:

    Log on to .com, register (Ireland is selectable) & start saving.

    Plus avail of that 50p off link into the bargain.

    Games are also available on the .com site, something CD-wow obviously think us Irish peeps don't require/deserve :rolleyes:

    OMG, you're a genius, thank you so much...

    1 off topic question, does the LotR Collector's Edition always have the bookends? Looking at splashdvd.com where it is very cheap, but does not mention bookends. Thanks for any help.

    Exactly, but after about 4 working days, still nothing from them.

    So back on topic, has anyone been hit with custom charges to Ireland? I am considering using play, but from what I have heard about orders over Str£ getting pounded with VAT, I am unsure whether to get it from them.

    I have heard that Ireland is very easy to get stuff into without it being touched at customs. Does anyone have experience of having to pay?

    My import wasn't from anywhere in Europe, but I got a 15" Tempest (just a driver but still came in a big box, cost $150) and a plate amp (another big enough box, $130) from the US and was never taxed on any of them.
    If they aren't going to bother with something this size or cost, I doubt they'ld bother with something the size or cost of a dvd or 2.

    Good aul Ireland, always too lazy or too drunk to care!!!

    There is not much difference between EU countries ... if you import by post the chances of being caught are slight because of the amount of post passing through the system. As the amount of revenue generated is considered small the EU Governments do not allocate much manpower to this activity so packages are selected at random for examination by Customs and while a large package is likely to attract attention there is still only a slight chance that it will be checked. Over a period of twenty years only about ten packages delivered to me by post have subjected to Duty and VAT. It is also most likely that they are more interested in detecting drugs and (more recently) child porn.

    In the case of courier delivery the courier is obliged to declare the goods in question and they charge for doing this. All but two deliveries to my home address by courier from the US have attracted charges prior to delivery and in the case of one of the two I received an invoice three months later from the shipping company.

    You should have an allowance. For UK it's £17.99. Keep within that, and you won't attract duty. Worth paying extra postage for separate deliveries to do this (although doesnt work with box sets).

    Not all suppliers are honest with customs declarations either ;)
