Saving For A House? Tempted By 'the Sales' To Splash Out A Bit?

Recommended Posts

The UK gadget rip-off

"Mr Trotter found that a basket of gadgets and software cost £3,500 from UK shops but was £1,000 less when bought directly from US websites"

"The savings vary but in many cases PC Pro found that US prices were half those in the UK. Software-laptops and portable music players were all cheaper overseas, with digital cameras costing around 40% less in the US"

Even UK Retailers Say:

"The manufacturers have decided that the UK is a treasure island. Is it morally right that we pay higher prices to prop up the US market? I would say NO, it's NOT!'"

Add on the 17.5% in VAT and 5% in import duties that Customs will charge you when you bring your loot back into the UK, and the price difference looks a lot less attractive. £2,500+22.5%=£3,062.50. Or, of course, you could smuggle it in and risk getting the whole lot confiscated.
