[UK] Amazon Discounts 9516 Jabba's Palace

Postby Staff » Sun Aug 26, 2012 10:36 pm





Here's a deal for our friends across the pond. Amazon.co.uk has also dropped the price 20% down to £96. I'm not sure how tax works over there, so I have no idea if they charge tax or not. But they do have free shipping so it'll at least save you time, energy, and petrol.

As an FYI, in the UK, sales tax (or VAT - Value Added Tax - as it's known) is 20%. However every price you ever see already has it included, including Amazon.co.uk. I guess it sucks that VAT is so high but it's nice that with prices, what you see is what you get. So if something costs 5 pounds and you pay with a 10 pound note, you get a 5 pound note back. Unlike the US where you'd get 4 dollar bills and a pocket full of coins which I always find a bit annoying. The fact that Lego is a lot cheaper in the US is very un-annoying though :) (being English but living in the US).

Same here ... 25% off is my threshold ... 33% off is always preferred if possible ... any more is a bonus.
