Maybe the same thing applies at BoB US. Set your country to US, buy a gift certificate and pay for your books with the gift certificate.
It hasn't affected me here in Oz just yet but it may some time in the future.
Testing the prices with a sample ebook available from all sites(Hannibal by Thomas Harris) I found Waterstone's the dearest(no surprise, eh), BoB Uk middle and Wh Smiths cheapest but BoB US cheapest for me in OZ taking exchange rate into consideration.
