    Is there a DVD online store in UK (selling region 2) which offers free shipping, just like www.dvdboxoffice.com in Canada/US?

    There are loads. Just do a search for DVD retailers using google or alta vista.

    I don't know what the concern over shipping is.

    A&B sound regulary beat DVDBO on price including shipping and the same could be said for a few others.

    People should look at the bottom line.

    I agree with Doubledoom here.

    I always choose AB Sound over DVD Boxoffice as they are very often cheaper including P&P.

    I usually amke a list of what I want, then compare the two. AB Sound always comes up trumps.

    I guess I should have stated my original question as "which DVD online stores offer international free shipping (or at least european free shipping) for R1 or R2?"
    According to the previous replies the only ones seem to be www.dvdboxoffice.com (in Canada) and www.play.com (in UK).

    Why do you want free shipping when you can there are retailers that are cheaper inc P&P?

    That was my point :D

    Well, even though this forum is "based" in UK, there are many international users here, and since I live in Sweden I'm looking for free shipping when ordering from UK and USA.
    Even if there are retailers whose price including P & P is cheaper than retailers which offer free shipping in UK, it almost never is when regarding the shipping cost from UK to Sweden for 1 or 2 discs.
