The value of the Pound Sterling, Great Britian's currency, continues to drop.
Economists believe the UK is entering a recession, which is really bad news for anyone living or working in the UK.
We are shocked and saddened to watch such uncertainty unfold after Britian voted to leave the EU, and hope our friends find ways to recover soon.
Here in the US, shoppers can get some great deals when ordering some items from the UK.
Shop at amazon.co.uk for low-weight items that are cheap to ship across the Atlantic, such as:
Cameras and lenses
Region-free Blu-Ray movies
Do not buy electronics, because they use a different power plug in the UK.
USB-powered electronics (such as battery chargers) are fine since USB ports are universal worldwide, however few USB-powered products would have better prices in the UK than the US.
Add at least £15 to your basket to make it worth the modest shipping fee.
Do not exceed $800 (USD) in value.
Imported goods over $800 incur a tax of 2-5 percent for electronics, and as much as 37% for other items.
Taxes are waived for importing under $800 per year.
Checkout, log in with your US-based Amazon account, choose a US address and credit card.
Amazon will calculate the shipping price during checkout, usually around £2 or £3 for "Global" shipping.
Amazon will show the US Dollar equivalent of the order.
Your credit card will be charged in US Dollars.
Make sure to see the words "region-free" or "all regions" in the description of any DVD, Blu-Ray, or game from overseas.
Otherwise, the discs will not work in the US.
Browse region-free Blu-Ray Box Sets on Amazon.co.uk.
Beware, the warranty on UK camera & and lens purchases will not be serviceable within the US, so you would essentially have no manufacturer's warranty on these purchases.
Considering the prices are cheaper than buying one new and used, it may be worth the risk.
We have been using a Canon EF-S 10-88mm lens purchased from Amazon.co.uk since August, and had no problems.
To check Amazon.co.uk's final prices in US dollars, you need to add something to your cart and proceed to the final checkout page.
You can review your order before submitting it, and the final price will appear on the right as shown in this example screenshot.
Use your Visa card to spend at least $20 at a Regal Cinemas, United Artists, or Edwards Theatres location in a single transaction.
The purchase must be made in-store (not online) to buy movie tickets or concessions at a Regal location.
Online purchases and gift card purchases are not eligible.
A $10 Regal Cinemas eGift Card will be sent to you, to apply toward a future visit at Regal.
A Visa card is required.
