mine came to NZD$58.65 (using Paypal to do the currency conversion, which is a little more than CC doing it but I like to know how much its costing up front).

Need to be careful if you buying a lot from overseas even every parcel is much less than NZD400 but customs still might charge you if all the parcel arrived in NZ about the same time and the total value is >= NZD400.

I bought quite a lot from Amazon since last Friday when they started the deals and every single item is just half price or even less compare to NZ retailers but the total amount is about to reach NZD600. There was no problems for the first few days but since yesterday few of my parcels shows "Your shipment is part of a multiple lot to New Zealand which requires special handling and may be delayed" and Amazon starts to charging me NZD148 "Import Fees Deposit" for an item that is valued at NZD258 which never happens before so I got a really bad feeling about this.

And I just saw the news few days ago:

Compare to AU where everything under AUD1000 is duty free I don't what to say if above news comes true.

B and H also have the new Chromecast on that 2 for $50 special some US retailers are doing and they ship to NZ, about $7 USD cheapest shipping option.

Noel Leeming and Warehouse Stationary have Nexus 5X for $777

Which is so tempting, but I can't spend the cash

This seems like a good deal. Do these work fine with most external hard drives? ie support NTFS/exFAT formatting, most volume sizes etc.

Yep, Potable Hard Drives are recommended, the unit can format for you.

Yes it does but still has the selection and service to make it worth it.

Agree.  It's rather stifled my Black Friday sales plans from early in the year.

BH have the Sony A6000 camera, body only for $398 for example.  That would have worked out at $450 or so earlier in the year. 

And I have family travelling the states right now also for 'free shipping' back here.  I've put those plans on hold given the poor exchange rate.

I have wanted to have a play with some WeMo (Belkin) stuff but have always been put off by the price. However Harvey Norman have the switch / sensor combo on BF special for $48 (normal price from them $159). I have seen the unit specialed at Noel Leeming previously but not that low. I know it is runout stock but i couldn't resist, now I just need to find a use for it......
