Here we go, the first major price-drop (via Amazon Italy) for the much anticipated David Bowie Five Years CD box set, which is due out this Friday.
The 12CD box set is just over £70 on the Italian site (€98), compared to £98 on Amazon UK. A significant saving which works out to be under £6 per CD.
Remember, there are no import duties within the EU and if you’re ordering outside the EU VAT is deducted. So the Amazon Italy price equates to $90 for American SDE readers (it’s $120 on Amazon US). Usual tips apply – use Google Chrome to aid with translation and you don’t need to create a new Amazon account.
One final point is that there is nothing different about the version on sale in Amazon Italy, you won’t get a booklet in Italian, if you’re worried about that!
