Great Site for DVDs Books etc with Free Delivery to CH

For those who dont know about this site, its worth visiting play.com
as it is similar to Amazon in that it has DVDs CDs Games etc

The best bit is that is does free delivery here, and delivery is always very fast

Also as they send out items individually usually I never get hit by customs
Remember to click on the Euro sign when you buy

Re: Great Site for DVDs Books etc with Free Delivery to CH

I have found that if you basically look at an item on play.com in GBP, it costs XXGBP. Then if you go and change it to Eur...Man, they use a really steep conversion cost or something. I think that is the 'catch' on what they say Free delivery.

I have not bought from Play.com for a while...but check it, maybe it was only on certain items at the time that I bought.

BUT I agree, it still was cheaper than many other websites.

Amazon (UK) is also great. As a bonus, they take off the VAT if shipping to Swissland - although they will charge for delivery. Having said that, I find that it is almost always cheaper to have DVDs etc. sent here as the saving from the no-VAT is usually greater than what they charge for delivery.

I have the option to have things sent to my UK address but find it cheaper to have it sent here instead.....Stop me if I start making sense....

Also, look at Amazon (DE). They do offer free delivery and also remove sales tax.

Try www.bookdepository.co.uk for books, they are usually quicker than play.com and cheaper than amazon.co.uk for books once you take into account amazons postage on books is quite a lot.

.
I have found the conversion has been pretty good.

Now if you look at NEXT Directory and their EU conversions, they seem very high and not up to date with current exchange rates.
