What happens when someone sends gear from the US over to Scotland? Do they charge all sorts of tariffs and fees for the incoming gizmo? If not, perhaps it's worth buying from Amazon US, and then having a mate ship it over to Scotland.It's £465 on Amazon here,which is not quite as good a deal. My currency converter says the equivalent would be £350. Maybe I need to move!
So I'm on the phone right this moment talking to an Amazon rep, considering I just bought it yesterday... How do I do multiple (50, to be exact) thanks on that first post?
Definitely need a multiple thanks button.
Yes, I paid $599 as well in Idaho... but oh well.. but it has been fun to have.. so tonight to make up for the loss, my GF and I should have peanut butter sandwiches for dinner.. good way to justify/rationalize and make up for the loss.. LOL. I'm a great rationalizer.. I can make anything good in my mind..I paid retail plus tax from a local shop here. Amazon didn't have it in stock back then. But glad I got the X10 in time for my last trip to Seattle/Vancouver.
I got refunded $50, no questions asked.Amazon's website states that they don't price match with others. Not sure what they do in situations like this one, where their own price dropped. Keep us posted! I'm interested to find out if they'll price match their own price and give you straight refund.
FYI, if Amazon requires you to return the camera, and then buy it again at the lower price, in order to avoid the return shipping fee, simply refuse receipt of the $600 camera shipment. If you refuse the shipment, it automatically gets sent back to Amazon, and Amazon gives you a full refund including the original shipping cost, and does not deduct the return shipping cost.
I refused shipment once because the tripod that I bought did not arrive in time for a trip.
