新到CD/DVD 兼談Amazon UK網購

從Amazon UK訂購的三套CD/DVD,7月22下單,7月25出貨,8月8到達。

● Gary Bertini, Mahler The Symphonies
● Paco Pena, His Essential Recordings
● Eleni Karaindrou, Elegy of the Uprooting DVD



這只是我第三次從Amazon UK下單。平常我比較喜歡網逛並光顧Amazon US,因為覺得貨種多,價格較廉,用家評論較多。

這次,主要是貪圖Amazon UK的free delivery。澳洲,紐西蘭,印度及南非顧客,凡買書,CD或DVD超過£25,即可享受此優惠,頗划算。優惠自年初推出,一再延長,最新說法是9月30結束,且看到時如何。(2011-10-4補加: 優惠已延長至10月底)

雖說free delivery省錢,但前提是貨品是自己想買的,並且貨價具競爭力。第一前提,容易,第二前提,要跟Amazon US比比(當然能跟更多網店比價更佳)。本地貨幣定價:

● Gary Bertini, Mahler The Symphonies (£16.99 vs $45.51)
● Paco Pena, His Essential Recordings (£3.99 vs $17.10)
● Eleni Karaindrou, Elegy of the Uprooting DVD (£15.99 vs $24.49)

不要忘記,真正比價時須從Amazon UK價扣掉20%英國VAT(海外顧客無須付當地VAT)。以£=$1.62兌換率計算:

● Gary Bertini, Mahler The Symphonies ($22.94 vs $45.51)
● Paco Pena, His Essential Recordings ($5.39 vs $17.10)
● Eleni Karaindrou, Elegy of the Uprooting DVD ($21.59 vs $24.49)

--------------------

- 澳元近來幣值超強,海外購物極具吸引力

- 澳洲個人購買外國貨品,不論自攜過關還是網購,只要總值不超過A$1000,免繳GST(跟VAT類似的稅項)或關稅。
