US prices vs. UK prices?

  1. I'm terrible at math. I'm Canadian and wondering if it would be better for me to get a Karo GM in England, or in the States. Does anyone know?
  2. I think with the VAT refund and depending on what the exchange rate is for the day, the difference won't be that significant. You can try buying at and H in a state with less sales tax. Riverside in NJ has lower taxes than NY.
  3. How are the exchange rates vis-a-vis the Loonie?
  4. Thanks, alo6.

    Beaumonde: looks like 1 CND dollar today is about 96c USD.
  5. Will you be coming to the UK soon Piaffe?
  6. with the price increase in the US the difference isn't that much anymore, but since you get the VAT refund in the UK which you can't get in the US :push: you could actually maybe save a little buying in the UK. it won't be a huge amount though.
  7. Just out of curiosity, does anyone knows how much is the Karo GM in London? I am also looking for a Karo GM and I will flying through London shortly with a long stopover so I am thinking of stopping by the H Stores.
  8. You don't get the whole VAT back. I think you get around 10% back and they charge for administration fee so there really isn't a huge difference. But Paris really is cheaper even without the VAT refund!
  9. Nope - I'm 4 weeks away from birth, so no air travel for me!

    My mother will be in London in the next couple of weeks, so I was wondering if it would be worth giving her a secret mission...

  10. Congratulations!
