Duty Free

I’ve been looking online at duty free prices vs strawberrynet.com and I was really surprised that strawberrynet.com actually come out cheaper on a lot of the products I was looking at. I’m going to be hoping to find some exclusive for duty-free products when we go away. Anyone know of any?

    LOL too true Music. Everytime I`ve been home I`ve been subjected to random drug tests/searches, etc, so I wouldn`t risk it. I`ll make some enquires and hopefully I can take some home with me.

    Fluffy Bunny, I`m not sure whether you are even allowed to smuggle those to NZ… From experience NZ customs are tighter than OZ… When I lived in Auckland few years back they had those sniffer dogs at the airport, snifing everywhere, even climbed on your backpack if they could smell something. I saw someone who got caught carrying some food and the person had to go through a very long process before he was allowed to pass through WITHOUT his food…. they threw it in the bin… The best way is to contact NZ custom and ask if you`re allowed to bring Krispy Kreme there, and they will let you know if it`s ok or not ok. I wouldn`t risk taking it if I were you…

    I`m going back to visit my family in NZ for christmas, and my sister is a complete Krispy Kreme whore. Is it legal for me to take her some on the plane, or am I going to have to revert to desperate measures to smuggle them?? I`ve been told I`ll be turned to pulp with a stilletto if I don`t bring her some.

    I also travel a lot to especially Europe, and just came back from a trip Friday morning. I find that the prices vary from airport to airport. Compared to Melbourne Airport, Strawberrynet is about the same price, whereas shopping at Singapore or Bangkok airport is slightly cheaper. It also depends a lot of which brands are bought. I.e products of asian origin are cheaper in Asia than in Europe and so forth, just like in the shops really. Some airports have `online shops` – i.e. Copenhagen airport – if you order online to pick up with you leave, or pass through the airport, you can get an additional 20% off compared to the price in the dutyfree shop….and that is much cheaper than Strawberrynet.
    As for Alcohol… depends, basic stuff such as Barcardi and Smirnoff, hardly worth it as its always on special somewhere, but if buying `premium` such as e.g Suthern Comfort – I just bought 2 x 1 litre bottles for $49 – in Safeway, if on special this would be $54 for 2 x 0.7 litres – so still a saving plus you get bigger bottles!
