Look a little below the orange "ADD TO CART" button for the special price. If it's not there, then there is no special price for your locale. I see the $180 price for the U.S.

It's a shame we can't get folks to include "(US only)" in the title. I keep seeing these offers and immediately try buying them to ship to the UK but then always find they either don't ship or the costs of shipping negate any savings.

Good question. Other than seeing specific text that says an offer is only available in one locale, is there any way we can know prices or availability for other locales?

The Daily Edition is $299 at J and R right now, if I am not mistaken.

I'm not sure - one thing I can say for certain is that none of the Sony offers so far posted are available in the UK as I've tried to buy just about everyone Over here the price of the PRS600 is $360 which is a joke. I suppose the best way forwards is to just wait until someone says this can't be bought outside the US and then change the title accordingly.

Thanks for changing yours

Mike

TechForLess claims they will ship internationally and they're at $183.10 for an Open Box PRS600:
http://www.techforless.com/cgi-bin/tech4less/PRS-600BC
They also have the PRS300 for $134.12
http://www.techforless.com/cgi-bin/tech4less/PRS-300SC

If you start by going through their e-mail coupon link:
http://www.techforless.com/cgi-bin/t...mv_pc=email609
you should be able to take another 10% off those prices ($164.79/$120.71).

HTH,
Richard

Disclaimer: I have no relationship with TechForLess other than as a satisfied customer - Sean Mitchell is the sales rep I use.

Thanks for that Richard!
Did you get charged VAT or is it a lottery?

I'm in the US, so I don't know. Their FAQ says only:

Q: Do you ship outside the United States?
A: Yes, we ship products internationally. We will have to declare your order's actual value on customs forms, and will NOT be able to label it as a gift or return. You are responsible for all duties and taxes that may be applicable to a delivery outside the USA. Removing the product from the United States may void all warranties. You can place an order with your international credit card directly on our site, or contact our sales department to discuss prepayment by bank wire.

...so I'd guess the answer is "Yes"?

Richard
