Saving money by buying CDs from the UK

The rapid decline of the British pound has given us some remarkable UK bargains.  When shopping for CDs (or DVDs, if you have a player capable of playing region 2 PAL disks), it may behoove you to look at Amazon.co.uk.  It is worth noting, as I mentioned in my previous post, that US customers have VAT deducted from the price at checkout, which generally more than makes up for the shipping charges from the UK.  (Books have no VAT, and are more expensive to ship, so buying books from the UK is not quite the same bargain.)

Thanks for posting! I currently buy most of my DVD and CDs online from 101cd.com and get some really good deals. I will certainly take a look at the Amazon UK website and see what deals are on offer.
