|Details:||Items Sold in Britian Are On Sale:|
As you may have heard in the news, Great Britian's currency, the Pound (£), has suddenly dropped in value by about 11% in the last day. This is really bad news for people in the UK.
This does mean people here in the US can buy items from the UK at a discount. UK people drive on the left and speak with a different accent, but when it comes to leather jackets, art, camera lenses, and region-free Blu-Ray movies, many are exactly the same as what is sold in the US.
Places to shop:
When paying, use their own conversion to pay in US Dollars (incurs a foreign transaction fee). Or, if you choose to pay in GBP (Pound) instead of Dollars, and use a credit card with no foreign transaction fees, the prices can be lower. Cards with no foreign currency fees include Capital One 360, Capital One Venture, Chase Sapphire Preferred, and American Express Gold & Platinum.
Be sure to do your research before buying anything, since some items are different than the US versions. For example:
Update: Beware of duty taxes when importing items into the US. If you purchase at least $800 worth of items from the UK, you are required to pay a duty fee (tax) on the value of the goods. Many electronics and cameras can have a fee of around 2% to 5%. Some rates vary up to 37.5% depending on what the item is.
