Just use amazon.co.uk,
This review is from: Harry Potter: Complete 8-Film Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
amazon.co.uk has the three different HP movies 1-8 sets
just go to the site and type in "harry potter 1-8"
ALLL BLU RAY CUSTOMERS can order, as these are region free and with HD media, there is no such thing as PAL encoding.
"Harry Potter - The Complete 8-Film Collection [Blu-ray] [Region Free]"
and "Harry Potter: The Complete 1-8 Film Collection - Limited Numbered Edition (Blu-ray + DVD) [Region Free]"
I live in philly, i ordered the regular set, its going to come to around 40 bucks i believe
the special edition version will be way less than 100 and far surpasses this version sold here
the dvd set is SUPER cheap but it is not region free and it IS in PAL. so most americans wont be able to see it
this is true for most of amazon.co.uk 's inventory. as far as blu ray, as long as it says region free, it will work in america, and it only takes a week to get here, and it is ALWAYS cheaper. and they have WAY more unique box sets and artwork.

the cheapest kinds of sets they have are usually movie + sequel sets. their alien anthology blu ray is about 35 bucks compared to 80 here, for example.
you just have to be careful, you have to make sure the blu rays say region free, and if you are buying dvds, you have to make sure you have a region free dvd player and a tv that allows PAL formatting.

This is great information. Thanks so much for letting us know about this. Should've known the place where Harry Potter originated would get the collectors version before anywhere else. You've saved me from future grief, thanks again.

For the region free blue ray DVDs, would we need a region free dvd/blue-ray player and TV? Or would they work for regular blue-ray players and TVs?

Mr. M. J. Williams says:
Any Blue Ray player will be fine but normally the dvds arn't region free they are region 2 and your TV will be fine hope this helps.

With Amazon.co.uk you can use your regular login/password for Amazon.
For 30 British Pounds, $47 USD, you can get it delivered early December. (it lists at 32 pounds, but I think that includes VAT and IS subtracted at checkout)
This is 11 blu-ray discs, 8 movies and bonus for the Half-Blood Prince, and the Deathly Hallows 1&2
That is HALF PRICE.
There is also a more expensive version with 19 discs (8 movie dvds + 11 blu-ray) in a limited edition collection box. (pre-order chance to get box numbered 1-1000) (~$105)

You just have to watch out for 50hz films like BBC Life. Those won't work in a lot of US players.

Just ordered mine, worked out to about $95 US with shipping to Florida. This is awesome, 19 discs instead of 8, including 3 blurays of special features! plus its a way cooler looking limited edition box!

Thanks for the tip, I just ordered mine from Amazon UK. $48 is a steal compared to the $98 US price.
Another note for everyone doing this though, they don't charge until it ships (just like in the US). Exchange rates change so keep an eye on it as the date nears. If the USD for some reason devalues even more, or the British Pound strengthens the cost can be vastly different.
