I've ordered one, and rather than pay the fee's when the item arrive's etc, I went for expedited shipping which means I'll get it quicker, and amazon take an import fee deposit, which I understand that if it's lower then they'll pay you the difference back, and if it's higher then they pay the extra :)
My order came to £111 ( and something pence)
Now I either need to find season 3/4 region B or find myself a cheap cheap region free player!

I've been reading that some people last year, had the items declared at the original price, and so people were charged higher fee's, but they managed to get refunds from amazon :thumbsup:

Anybody used the import fee deposit before?
Thanks
Jack
:smashin:

Edit : the price I paid was 111.53

I did toy with that idea but I'm not in a hurry and may get lucky and save a few quid. If not the worst is I get it a few days later and have paid the same as using expedited. :thumbsup:

I'm not in that much of a hurry either, but I can want it soon :D
Also although when I checked out with other items standard shipping said it would be here before december 24th, when the items have actually been shipped it's saying they will be here on the 1st Jan :thumbsdow
Whether that's right or not, I have no idea, but I hope not :(

I can't believe I just pulled the trigger on this... £91 (got standard shipping) on myself less than a month before Xmas :eek:

If the missus finds out how much this cost me, I'll need to pray I get immigrated to the island :devil:

The way I see it, it's still that little bit cheaper than the UK set ( if you don't include discounts) and will look a hell of a lot better!
Sure I'll have to find a player to play season 3/4 but I'm sure it will be worth it :D

Mines just arrived :D
It's lovely, although the slip cover box thing it comes in has some slight damage to it, so I'm on chat with amazon now :D

Great news mate... :smashin: I assume you had no customs as you paid up front right?

What was the packing like by Amazon?

No customs fee's :smashin:
And the packaging its self was ok, a box with two big air bags in, but obviously not enough to stop the box moving around a little bit :(
The woman on the chat, is insisting that I return it, which I don't really want to do, as I wanted to start watching it tonight :D

I had the same sort of packing for the Battlestar box set. Mine was ok but it is daft to put a heavy box with 4 or 5 air bags and hope its ok.

Worth entering feedback in your account details on the order.

Mine had two airbags :rolleyes:
The first person was quite unhelpful, so I've just said thanks but no thanks in a polite way and opened another chat :smashin:

Nice :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Lovely set isn't it!
Wishing I had gone for that now, however there was always the risk of customs and I guess you just got lucky!
Still my £48 has just been refunded so I can't complain :laugh:

28/11 so a little over a week using standard shipping :clap:

Mine went out of the 30th, so hopefully I'll get it soon... praying I avoid customs..

Another quick Q, I notice the heading is lost £88... yet mine cost just over £91 with standard shipping?? Did I miss a trick?

I think my conversion was a bit off. Upon checking I paid in USD and the bank have taken £90.41
