rippoff from demark

Post by crankey on Wed 10 Nov 2010, 11:02 am

weell went to order from denmark, with the aussie dollar at all time high of us1.0004 at time of posting this, & what do you find from our so called friends in demark, try paying an average of twenty percent more than the current value of the aussie dollar, i put in a complaint only be told bye demark, " but it's the exchange rate, where i live au", any nonsence they could dream up at the time .
the end story is BE VERY CAREFULL BUYING DIRECT FROM DEMARK WITH AUSSIE DOLLAR AT EQUAL PARITY WITH THE US$, YOU SHOULD BE GETTING A LOT BETTER DEAL THAN WHAT THEY ARE OFFERING FROM DEMARK.

ANY THING ON THEIR WEBSITE SHOULD BE CHEAPER THAN THE US$ ADVERTISED PRICE

MERRY XMASSS

While I sympathize with you, most Lego prices are set for the year ahead, so the exchange rate wasn't at parity when they were set. Also the US market is far more price conscious than our own, so they have lower prices because we are willing to pay more.

To avoid this you could set up an account with a remailer and order using US prices. (To do this you just select the US as your region in the Lego store, but you need the remailer so you can provide an US address).
