Reader's question: L.L.Bean's Shipping costs.

Question came in from Anon, concerning my post about my new L.L.Bean Field Canvas Duffle:

Hi, may i know how much was the shipping cost to Germany? Greetings

Hi Anon, (I'll answer in English, if that's ok for you)

first of all, thank you for reading my blog! It's good to know that you guys are out there!

And I'm happy to answer your question:

L.L.Bean provides all the information about international shipping right here.

The Field Canvas Duffle comes with a price of 99 US$, which means 35 US$ shipment, if you order shipment by "International Airmail".

The really interesting part starts at your local customs office (Zollamt), as you have to pay import sales tax or Einfuhrumsatzsteuer.

This will add an extra of 19% to your costs!

In my case it was:

Field Canvas Duffle: 97.10 US$ (I had a 10% gift card discount + 8 US$ for monogramming)
+ Intl. Shipment: 35 US$
= 132.10 US$ = 95.23 Euros + 19% Tax = 113.32 Euros

And to be honest: 113 Euros is a bargain for what you get!
Compare this price to any other Duffle you see in the German shops. You won't find a better one.

So place your order today! You'll have to wait 3-4 weeks, but it's worth it!
