PSA: GFS 20% Sale / Shared shipping to Europe?
« on: October 07, 2018, 03:43:30 AM »
Just saw that GFS is having a big sale:
https://www.guitarfetish.com/Giant-SITE-WIDE-MOING-Sale-ONE-TIME-ONLY_c_805.html

I'd like to get one of their bodies. So I'd pay 35 $ for the body and 70 $ for shipping to Germany.
Would anyone in Germany or Europe on here be interested in getting something, too, and we share the shipping cost?

Would you not be hit by exhorbitant customs fees on that $35 body and $70 shipping costs combined?

But I might be interested, as I'm in the Netherlands. What I'm personally interested in would be:

What would the total amount then be?

Yes, there's about 20-25% coming on top in customs and tax. I just thought that a 40 $ body is cheap enough to justify this, but the longer I think about it, the more stupid it seems.
I'll wait if anybody else will join in, I guess this only makes sense if there are enough people.
