Be aware that most, if not all, of that import fee will eventually be refunded so you shouldn't give it too much weight.
Sometimes the fee can be refunded MONTHS after you order.
On July 13, I got this notice from amazon.com, "We're writing to let you know we processed your refund of $6.13 for your Order 002-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX"
. That was for an order that shipped in May.
Amazon.com is still a great deal If
you order a few titles at a time and specifically look for title that are much cheaper in the U.S.. For example, a lot of Blue Underground titles are half the cost in the United States(the 2 discs set are usually $40.00 up here, but $20.00 in the States). I keep a list of "filler" titles that I can use to fill out an order. For example, I there is one specific movie that I want from amazon .com, Ill order it and add a couple of Blue Underground titles from my list to get maximum savings.
