I love play.com too - one of my #1 DVD retailers. However you still have to be careful of customs on any US DVDs (R1 or R0 if it's coming from the US) priced over £18. If you click on 'Buy' for the MSCL set you'll see the following customs warning: Title: Customs Information The product you have sel...

Any non Region 2 titles can be hit by customs if you order at Play.com. They changed their policy a few months ago, meaning all their US titles ship via the US, and the customs charges are the buyers responsibility. If you order anything above £18 it will warn you of this before you confirm your ord...

Some US & Canadian companies ship via EU countries (to the UK) - if that's the case that's why you won't be paying customs. I'm pretty sure I read on one of the DVD forums that Deep Discount have been shipping via France lately? You NEVER get hit by customs if you order from DVDBoxOffice.com (Canadi...

Does the Canadian Amazon use regular Air Mail or DHL? I have a feeling that the default postage is surface mail, and the one up from that which only costs a few $ more ships by DHL. If it was shipped by DHL, they normally always send you a bill afterwards, so hopefully it wasn't that!

If you're not at home (usually even when you are at home!) they leave a card for you telling you the amount you have to pay in customs and for you to go pick it up at your local sorting office with payment. Parcel Force seem to deliver the package and ask for the fee when you answer the door, but in...

I also paid customs of £12.15 when I received the box set from Amazon. Still worked out cheaper than buying from AU in any case. But customs is really hit and miss. I've had about 5-6 packages come through over the past few months that I should have been charged customs on, but wasn't. You win some ...

If you're stuck getting it within the UK, the only other place I know of that has it listed is Future Entertainment: http://www.futureent.com - but it's priced at £64.99 (including P&P), and they don't apparently have it available at present. Also, this particular company charge your credit/debit ca...

Thanks from me too Jason, I may have to take you up on that too if the worst comes to the worst.

My overchargers were refunded on the Monday (e-mailed by Ross to confirm) and showed on my statement the following Thursday, actually. I've never had anything that's been credited to my card take longer than a week to show on my statement before. But that's just my experience. With anyone else I'd w...

Hi William,

I saw it. And I even mentioned it in my report to Watchdog!! But don't worry, just to say that it had a bit of publicity back at the beginning of the year. :lol:

I learnt of the DVD on these forums, though.

I sent mine in earlier too! I hope others will too.

BTW, if anyone wants a copy of the 'report' I sent to Watchdog concerning this (though it wasn't brief!), for whatever reason, then please e-mail me at: crscot@hotmail.com and I'll e-mail it to you.

UK People

If anyone in the UK is still having problems with refunds of double/triple charges, or with being refunded for their cancelled order(s) if they're going to cancel, then I urge you to report AU to Watchdog at the link below, with a brief history of what's been going on and a link to this forum. And m...

I cancelled on Tuesday and was told 'no problems' to my request for a refund by Ross. No credit has shown up on my credit card statement yet, though. I've already spoken to the credit card people about it and they're about to dispute the charges, but I'll leave it until Tuesday next week, and keep m...

I just wanted to mention (if that's OK - don't want to butt in - all good questions that I'd like to know the answers too as well!), that the customs are outside of AU's hands. Even if they're marked 'gift' you'll still pay customs (anything above GB£18/US$27 is at risk of being hit - no matter if i...

Update

I may be apologising for having so little faith come the end of this week, as I just got a nice e-mail off Ross saying that my refunds were in the system and should show up this week... Thought I'd put in this update for those that are going through the same thing, particularly outside of the USA. I...
