Bought the 8 DVD set on Pre-Order from Amazon UK.. SAVED $$$$$,
This review is from: Harry Potter Years 1-7 Part 1 Gift Set (DVD)
After reading another review I decided to look at Amazon UK. What I found was the 8 DVD set that could be pre-ordered to arrive in time for Christmas. I purchased it today for $39.10 American, DELIVERED!. The prices on the UK site are in British pounds and include what is called 20% VAT or "Value Added Tax". When shipping to the US, we DO NOT PAY that VAT and it is extracted from your total at checkout. Your log in at Amazon US works in the UK as well, but it is of course a completely separate website. I saved money and got the 8th DVD in the set too. Expected delivery is 12/8-12/13 due to it being a pre-order that does not ship until after 12/1/11. This is worth a look people...... http://www.amazon.co.uk

I know right! And if it is a gift, you get the added pleasure of telling the recipient that their box set came from the UK and SO DID HARRY. Enjoy.

Most DVDs players play more than one region. We have DVDs from AU, the US and the UK and they all work in our $40 no name DVD player.

There's a disclaimer on some sets that only the blu-rays are Region-Free and that the dvds are Region 2. The one that doesn't say "region-free" clearly states PAL format and Region 2. Many US players will play different regions and many won't. Best to Google your brand first.

Thanks so much for the tip! I just ordered the box set from the UK website for 48.00!!!! I believe Best Buy is selling the 8 DVD Blu-Ray set for $110.00 so this is the best Christmas deal. Once again, thanks for the tip!
