Sir Blued, here's the breakdown:

Subtotal of Items:    £7.98 
Postage & Packing:    £3.58 
   ------ 
Total before VAT:    £11.56 
VAT:    £0.00 
   ------ 
Total:    £11.56 
Promotional Gift Certificates:    -£0.00 
   ------ 
Total for this order:    £11.56 

This is my first order from Amazon UK, so I ordered the Sin City dvd first, kasi mura lang compared to what I really intend to order, which is the The Godfather Steelbook. ;D

Keeping my fingers crossed that I will get this. :-[ But if this works, I will definitely order all my steelbooks from them. ;D They have a good number of movies on steelbook! ;D


An update from yesterday, Amazon sent me an email stating that my order has shipped out. ;D So far, so good! ;D

Price is not bad. But I'm really hesitant about collecting steelbooks because of possible dings and dents.

www.amazon.de may Iron Man steelbook, baka gusto mo. ;D

I hope not! :( I will post photos on how the package looks once I get it. I checked my order online and the delivery date changed from Oct. 10 to Oct. 3. :o

Regarding the Iron Man, I'll check it out! ;D

I think kasama na dun, kung okay naman yung post office sa area niyo baka walang problem. Usually they just hold it and you have to pick it up personally and pay a holding fee of P35.

Yup! Correct again! ;D Shipping is already included in the price. Have to pay Php35.00 pesos sa post office once you get the post notification that the dvd arrived. ;D

I don't think you get taxed at all. I made orders from CDWOW.com in the past. In fact, if you visit the thread, I made a step by step report on two dvds that I ordered online (http://pinoydvd.com/board/index.php?topic=9879.0), my topic starts at page 2, reply #53. ;D I thought that when I ordered two dvds, that they were going to ship them to me at the same time. My assumption was wrong. They mailed each dvd separately. I this way, your dvds won't get taxed. ;)

In line with Amazon UK. As I placed the order last night. There is an option for you to choose if you want to "Group my items into as few deliveries as possible." If you don't choose this for your order, your orders/dvds will be sent to you separately. :)

That's not necessarily true. They usually don't, but one particular time, they checked my £50 order and got taxed about 2000 pesos. I'm in QC. Mas mahigpit sa Makati, mas maluwag sa probinsiya.

But that was once out of over 100 orders. I normally just pay the Php 35 post office handling fee. So... it's worth the risk.  ;D

Just place your complete shipping address with zip code and the order shall be delivered directly to your post office from where your address belongs to. :)

Has anyone ordered any DVD from Amazon.co.uk?  I ordered a DVD boxed set on April 22, and it said that it was sent through DHL, but the estimated delivery time is June 1.  Does it really take this long, or is June 1 the maximum date?  TIA.

This is my first time to experience DHL shipping from amazon UK.  They usually use Royal Mail but from my experience with amazon.de's DHL shipping, it usually takes one to two weeks' time.  In this case, maybe June 1 is the maximum date.. we'll see.  I also have an order pending with a June 2 estimated delivery, I hope they get here sooner.  :)

I'm a regular customer of Amazon.co.uk. Normally, their orders do take 1-2 weeks, but my past two orders both arrived one month AFTER the estimate due date. I had both replaced, and ended up having the replacements "returned to sender" when they arrived. Yes, the replacement note said "Keep it if both arrive," but that just reeks of theft to me.

I actually sent feedback they should increase their estimated delivery date to the Philippines to prevent similar occurrences. I'd be very surprised, though, if they actually listened and that's what caused the June 1 estimated date you got on your confirmation email.

I usually get my packages from amazon UK about 8 to 12 days after dispatched.  But lately, I receive them after 3 weeks or more and this is via Royal Mail...

I do hope it arrives before the June 1 estimate.  I called up DHL to ask if this really is true, but they do not have any idea.  They said that my package must have been sent through a DHL service called "small packets" which can only be found in Germany, meaning, the type of service is not yet available in the Philippines.  They are not sure if it is air freight or sea freight.  And instead of the usual 10-digit tracking number, I got a 12-digit number.  It is all very confusing.
