    Default Amazon.com - what's the NZ equivalent??

    Hello there

    Can someone help me??? I'm trying to send a friend of mine a DVD gift in NZ, he is over there and I am in the USA so I can't really order it from amazon and get it shipped because it will take too long and plus DVD's have those region things where an american one won't work in an NZ DVD player.
    So I thought aha NZ must have an amazon or at least something similar but I can't find anything like it!!

    Any suggestions???
    Thanks

    Hi Feathers,

    Try http://www.realgroovy.co.nz/
    I hear they have a good choice. FYI most DVD players sold here are suitable for all regions, very useful

    Cheers, Miep

    Try www.cdwow.com for actual DVDs and Cd's

    It is in GB Pounds but it is worldwide free delivery. Cd's DVD's(regions too, games etc)


    I just ordered 2 cd's (Robbie Williams Greatest hits) which is his latest for GBP7.99 free delivery to NZ and Now 59 which cost GBP12.99 on the 20th November and today - 5 days later they were in my PO Box!! Not a bad service. BTW Robbie williams Greatest hits is NZ$24.99 in the Warehouse so even with the exchange rate it still cost me less although I used my UK switch card to pay!!

    Hi,

    A Kiwi told me that they actually use Amazon.co.uk to NZ because they are better than Amazon.com to NZ - also NZ Customs don't add duty :P to anything like this coming into NZ (bit of a loophole - I'm sure when they discover it they will start to but until then I'm going to order through Amazon.co.uk!)
