  1. Hi! I'm about to pre-order a choco paddy from LVR and noticed the price comes to $1,200 including shipping? Am I getting this right? NM price is $1500 + tax. Am I missing something here?
     
  2. Yes, that is right - your CC company may charge you a currency conversion fee (citibank does this) and you will pay duties to fedex after they deliver the bag to you.

    You should still wind up paying less than US retail though.
     
  3. Do you have any idea what the duties to fedex or what the currency charges would be? I don't like surprises. Thanks for your help!
     
  4. One of our regular members posted about her LVR duties, you could do a search for the thread; I know they were over $100 but less than $200.
     
  5. roughly 10%
     
  6. Hmm... still a good deal I think. Thanks guys!
     
  7. I think so!
