Reply To: Duty Free – just a marketing gimmick?

The real message is that HMRC hardly ever check, and as long as you remove your iPad from its packaging and use it a bit before bringing it home you would be very unlucky if they caught you (they do check from time to time, but it’s very, very rare).

If you want to make a saving, and are heading through LHR anyway, then much as I am not a fan of BAA, Dixons Travel Duty Free is among the most cost effective retailers in the UK to purchase an iPad2, especially if you take advantage of the voucher I posted and also have a Worldpoints card. You can telephone them to confirm prices.
