Huh?

On June 23rd, 1 gbp = 1.50 usd. In other words, goods priced in GBP are now roughly 14% cheaper for US consumers than they were on 6/23.

At the risk of further filling this thread with discussion re: customs, I do have a quick question that I was hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on:

I ordered something from Slam Jam Socialism for ~$987 (shipped to the US), and just received a notification from DHL that I have to pay duties to the tune of ~$110.

I know that orders under $800 are exempt from duties, so this logically led me to conclude that anything above $800 would be assessed duties only on the amount over $800. E.g. I would be assessed duties on $987-800 = $187 worth of goods.

Was my assumption incorrect?

you pay duties on the entire value of the item.

All I can say is you got off lightly, a mere 11% of duties. Here in the UK we don't get a $800 waiver, everything over £15 attracts 20% VAT and then there are import duities also for goods over £135, these duties vary from 2.5% upwards. We are getting absoutley screwed here.

Is that good on everything/anything? If so and someone else has one they aren't going to use, I could trigger pull with it!

Found out it won't work for me per KA1555's post below, rats.

so it's not that the US dollar is stronger than the GBP, it just that the GBP isn't as strong as it used to be and therefore prices are better than before

Well, it will take a lot of carnage for the USD to be stronger than the GBP.
