So today I was at the FreeRecordShop in my hometown, and I bought some cd's. After getting home I spotted the shop tab on our website and remembered the dMw amazon shop. Just for the hell of it I searched for the cd's I bought and wanted to buy (out of stock at FRS) and was shocked to find the subtotal incl vat would be €49,60 while at FRS it would set me back €99,41, so little over double the price. So then I looked at bol.com, which is occasionally cheaper then FRS since its a webshop, but they charge me €94.90 which is exactly the same as with the MediaMarket.
Basically I could very well stop buying cd's in holland and just buy them via England. Even the new to be released Within Temptation cd (dutch rock band) will cost 12 bpb (so less then 14.50 eur) while it will be atleast 17.99 in Holland.
The only "drawback" is that you have to select the 3-7 days shipment, else they'll charge 3.50gbp plus 1gpb per aditional cd.
So I can only urge you Dutchies (and ofc the rest of you dMw'ers) to buy your cd's via the dMw shop, you don't only help the community but also your wallet .
Maybe I should have a talk with amazon and start an amazon.nl and force the prices of all dutch companies down
