    With respect to big ticket items shipped internationally, like big vinyl box sets, I think Amazon have been shipping ONLY through UPS. Consequently, anyone with "P.O. Box Null" as their default shipping address get the "Sorry, this item cannot be shipped to your location" message.

    It is possible that by switching your address to your regular home address (i.e. without the "P.O. Box Null"), you might be able to get this item shipped to you.

    Bear in mind however, that by doing so you may have to pay import fees and duty.

    Not sure if this will work, but it's worth a shot.

    Funny because it is no problem getting stuff from other Amazon locations to Canada. Hope you guys can sort it out.

    No it wont work.They will ship dvd sets but not the vinyl boxes anymore.And I bought all three of my Beatles vinyl boxes from them.
    I guess they learned from all the returns they had to eat the return postage on for the stereo Beatles box.....100's they had topay for.

    Perhaps, because I'm in New England, I was able to have the Stones vinyl set shipped to me? Supposedly being shipped today.

    Ah, Amazon.ca won't ship them to the U.S..

    Edit: beaches_entertainment has the 2016 Division Bell on Amazon.com for $31.13 total. So I picked that one up.

    77 dollars for 5 CDs doesn't seem to be that great a deal to me.

    You must not be a Bear Family guy. That's about 1/3 of the usual price.

    I don't know about Canadian import fees, but ordering direct is not 3 times as much, 75 USD plus 32 USD shipping. It's a shame they don't remove VAT. They do tell you that they aren't removing $12.05.

    I don't know what kind of exchange rate you're using, but $77.31 plus HST is $87.36 Canadian which should convert t0 around $66 US. Are they really charging $32 to ship to the USA? :cheers:

    I meant ordering directly from Bear Family in Germany. It was in response to$77 being 1/3 the normal price. It it's truly 1/3 the normal price on amazon.ca, ordering directly from Bear Family is cheaper.

    You're also forgetting Canadians get charged duty and a processing fee so add another $35 or so in that if ordering from Bear Family direct. Also there is the Canadian dollar to convert to. So assuming you buy it for $95US (regular price at their store) plus $30 shipping from Bear you're easily around $225 Canadian with exchange rate and duty. So like I said...about 1/3. I think you can assume Canadians know what they are talking about in an Amazon Canada thread. :)

    Whatever the regular price is, it is still a ridiculous price to pay for 5 CDs.

    eelkiller Technically right but still wrong

    Many Bear Family sets are worth those "ridiculous" costs.

    And the input from 99.9% of my friends, family, and co-workers is that it's ridiculous to buy CDs at any cost in 2016.

    As the saying goes,
    It's all relative...
    :p :laugh: ;)
