The NZ $ is sky-high, bad for the economy, all you can do is shop while the money lasts. Much as I like shopping in Marbecks, sometimes they don’t have a CD I want. For all these reasons, and the free delivery, I have been buying from Amazon recently, that is Amazon.com.uk, not Amazon.com The UK store will deliver CD’s and DVD’s for free as long as you buy 25 pounds worth. You also need to make sure that you choose an item being sold by Amazon itself, and not an affiliate or else the free delivery doesn’t work.
Delivery takes 5 to 10 days. CD’s are from 3 to 22 pounds, with most about 9, which works out at 18 nzd, i.e. just double the amount in pounds to get the nzd equivalent.
I trawled through some recent mixes and found CD’s with the free delivery. See above. If I have time I will kick in a few of my favourites. Note that I do get a kickback, a few pennies towards buying more music.
Amazon does have an excellent DVD selection. The following 14 DVD box set of Hitchcock is a family favourite.
P.S. Just sent in an order. Obviously Amazon likes me, the CD’s ended up costing even less than indicated in the above widget, about NZD18 each …
Amazon estimate delivery in 2 days which seems optimistic.
