Import Books Cheaply for Expats

Something a bit different today, saving money on books! If you live in the USA or the UK then you can pretty much ignore this post as you will have access to the best discount books anyway.

However for the other 90%+ of the world population this could save you some serious money by taking advantage of price discrepancies between different countries.

For the sake of example I shall use one of my daughters favourite stories "The Terrible Plop" by Ursula Dubosarky, at the time of writing this book could be ordered online and delivered to a house in Australia for: $24.95
$15.78 $16.15

So instantly we have an almost $10 saving on the book, remember this includes postage!

BUT what if we visit those two Book Depository sites using a local IP address? Well then things get even cheaper! with UK IP $12.07 with US IP $12.71

Now our savings are OVER $10 from the original local book stores price, a total saving of over 50%! Oh and yes this price still INCLUDES DELIVERY!

Now of course you are going to need to get a UK and US IP address to take and while you could do this for free with an open proxy I implore you not to do this! Why? Well you are making a purchase here and you should never ever send your payment details via an open proxy, many such free proxies are purposely built just to harvest payment details from people who use them. To be secure you need to use a private proxy service such as our ever favourite Identity Cloaker, which gives you not only UK and US servers but multiple servers all around the world!

Do always remember to check both the UK and US sites, more often than not the US one is the cheaper of the two.

For those who of you who want to get this great book just click below, though remember to use a UK IP address from Identity Cloaker if you want it for the best possible price!
