Zoë received several Amazon.com gift cards for her birthday last year. We had asked for them as one option for gifts for her since we didn’t want to haul any more “stuff” with us on our move to Uruguay (her birthday was the day before we left for Uruguay).
We got an excellent tip from a member of the Exploring Uruguay Forum that books and DVDs are exempt from duties and taxes so we decided it was time to place an order with Amazon. So, we ordered Zoë some new books and a DVD of her favorite show Shushybye Baby(we lost her copy on the trip down to Uruguay).
We weren’t sure how the delivery would work, but it went very smooth! I placed the order on October 14 and received two packages on October 29. They delivered the boxes directly to our apartment. It didn’t even look like they had been opened and one of the boxes was quite large (we spent around $100 on books and the DVD).
You can see Amazon’s shipping rates and transit times to Uruguay here.
If you’ve been wanting to get some new English books or DVDs, we highly recommend ordering from Amazon.com.
