As for France the € 175 limit has been there for more than a decade:

Thanks, I didn't know that. Didn't really need to as I never ask the taxes back.

BUT: This is weird:
<<Stempelt der deutsche Zoll auch Ausfuhrbelege unter 50 Euro Warenwert ab?

Ja, da die Ausfuhrbelege für alle Nicht-EU-Länder gelten, stempeln die Zollbeamten auch Ausfuhrbelege unter 50 Euro Einkaufswert ab. Für andere Nicht-EU-Länder gelten nämlich andere Bagatellgrenzen bezüglich der Mehrwertsteuer-Rückerstattung.>>
WTF are other non-EU-countries if the rule is for all non-EU countries?
This implicates that every non-EU country is given different trifle-limit. And why am I almost sure that Switzerland's trifle-limit is the highest? How German is that, ROFL.

Time to shop in France and Italy.
