Because I got my pension today I went to buy the items that were in my basket as Amazon UK. However I discovered that the free postage to Australia for orders over 25 pounds that Amazon UK had been offering finished on the 19th of this month. I still decided to buy the DVDs that were in my basket but the book (The Steampunk Bible) I decided to buy from Book Depository US as they still have free delivery.
If I had bought the items from an Australian store (even an online one) they would have cost a lot more.
Yep, its not even close, the Aussie consumer, and bookbuyers in particular, get a very raw deal.
Just got back from the USA where I purchased a new Vaio laptop, Sony Tablet, and some PS3 games. All were HALF the Aussie price!
Don't get me started on the Aussie prices of books, shoes and clothes!
