What taxes are paid!? Like.. $550 = 412.5€, so 240€ in all the different takes? Way to go. That's more than half the price of the card.
It's not even $1 = 1€, rather $1 = 1.2€EU stahp
. At least let me buy it from outside and pay import tax only.
If you buy it at €399, ship it for €30, and pay €136 VAT (which is based on local prices) you'll... actually, yeah no, it'll still be €100 cheaper than just buying locally.
**** EU retailers.
Yep sir. That's so messed up. Surviving
in Bulgaria is hard enough on its own with an average monthly wage of ~300 Euro to afford getting this stuff priced for the life standard of wealthier countries and then having a premium charged on top.
I'd expect 650€ if it were $700 at launch.
I just hope this is the wrong price, I don't want it to seem like I rushed straight into blind rage, but if it is 650€ indeed, I will be infuriated. Can anyone actually justify such an increase?Edited by fragamemnon - 10/23/13 at 5:18am
