Question What's the cheapest way to get two PRS-900 in Spain?

Hi!

I'm looking to buy 2 Sony Reader PRS-900 in Spain. Can someone help me by telling me where (from who) to get them at the best possible price?

Thanks!

Unless you find yourself a cheap one in eBay.

I don't see how that can help me in Spain. None of those retailers seems to ship here :/

I bought plenty of times from Amazon while being in Spain. Have their policies changed?

Amazon US won't ship to Spain, and Amazon UK does actually ship but only certain items.

mkrndll, I've bought readers several times (starting with my old PRS-500) from BH Photo Video both online and in their brick&mortar store and I really like their service. The only caveat is that they don't accept Paypal or Google Checkout and you have to use a credit card.

Buy direct from Sony US using USunlocked (http://www.usunlocked.com).
USunlocked offers an american shipping address.
You buy from Sony US using that address and USunlocked will ship the items to spain.

I don't know if they've changed their policies. I buy most of my books from amazon.com, but they don't ship electronics to Spain. That gives us quite the headache to get most of the cool and useful gadget :/.

Thanks for trying to help!

That's wonderful. I don't have any issues with buying directly with the credit card. Thanks!

I'm interested in that kind of service, maybe for future purchases. Have you tried them?

How much doest it cost? I haven't been able to get an accurate rate from them, only something regarding the approximate weight of the package.

Are there any special taxes or added costs?

@mkrndll: Haven't tried usunlocked myself but "gheim" had.
He opened a thread about but it's in german (see http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71324).
Maybe Google can translate or you may ask gheim yourself.
I believe he also wrote a english thread but can't find it yet.
