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.
