Ebay

Video-Ezy have tons of shops, and often are a lot cheaper than Ebay, also they have mega clearance sales regularly, so we go and stock up, on dvd's

No, but a large amount of stuff makes it to Brisbane in 3-4 days. I've already received the books and DVD I ordered last Sunday Trial and error has taught me delivery from the UK is usually faster than from companies within Australia. Even the library at work orders from Amazon as its quicker than the place they used to use in Sydney!

For DVDs and electronic games...

Postage from Canada is supposed to be cheap and we always used to get good offers off DVDs and PSPs etc. from http://www.dvdboxoffice.com/168-7554768-16554773/home/
This firm definitely posts around the world.

Some good UK firms were
http://www.sendit.com/circle/search?...f=dvd&x=20&y=5
http://www.filmnight.com/SearchResults2.asp
not sure if they post abroad though.

There's also an
Amazon Canada http://www.amazon.ca/
and
Amazon Japan http://www.amazon.co.jp/In-English/b...8&node=1094656

may be worth checking the price from both.

Here's some others worth a try...

By the time you convert does it work out cheaper than buying in Aus.

We have been after the DVD Leon in Aus called The Professional here but no local shops have it so looks like we will have to have delivered.

I bought from which ever one was the cheapest by the time the whole package was brought together and turned up as it is amazing the variations in price between the main ones and like shops not one is cheapest for all.

Thought my Mother was bringing it then she turned up empty handed.

This may sound really sad, but you have no idea how much that has cheered me up, lol!
