Just in case you hadn’t heard Amazon UK is currently offering free shipping to Australia on all oreders over GBP 25, presumably in response to the offer from UK based Book Depository.
If, like me , you prefer Amazon’s features this is great news. (the offer is currently scheduled to close on 15 May 2011)
A quick comparison on an order of 15 books that I placed last week revealed the following total cost :
Amazon UK – $179.69
Amazon US – $270.70
Fishpond AUS -$239.82
That is a 33% saving from the UK site compared to the US site !
As you will note – these savings exceed the GST. IN addition, in my opinion other sites don’t match Amazon’s breadth of reviews and stock etc.
