1gkar: I was all set to purchase the Kindle 3 Wifi @ US$139 just now.
Went through the checkout process. At the last page, I found the NZD conversion equated to $174.??. With shipping on top of, the total came out at NZ$200.??. I thought the dollar must have dropped, so I did an exchange using www.xe.com only to find US$139 = NZ$167.352. What's going on?
Sorry Amazon, I don't appreciate being ripped off. I will wait until Monday, & purchase it for $209 from Dick Smith with local support.
Bugger, Mauricio, I was using your Kindle link page as well. Might want to enquire with Amazon why the $ discepancy.
I always pay in the foreign currency---never take the option to bill in kiwi dollars, the credit card exchange rate is always better than the foreign retailers fx rate.
