Hitting my InBox on Oct 6 was the Eureka Miniatures Newsletter. As always, lots of interesting and tempting products but what really caught my attention was the offer for free shipping! Yes, FREE shipping from the Land Down Under for orders exceeding AUD$130! Now, that gets my attention.
Usually, Eureka figures are purchased through EurekaUSA but a quick check of the AUD/USD exchange rate shows a relatively strong USD at present. I needed to capitalize on this fortuitous timing. When was the last time I ordered directly from Nic at Eureka Australia? Looking at the chart below, I bet you can guess. That's right. The last order placed directly to the Home Office was in 2008.
|AUD/USD Exchange Rate|
The large order discount of 20% also applies!
With the favorable exchange rate and the large order discount, 18mm AB figures work out to be about USD$0.55 foot/USD$1.10 horse and 18mm Eureka figures work out to cost about USD$0.46 foot/USD$0.92 horse. That is the delivered price! Wallet Emptying Offer from Eureka Miniatures! No shipping cost this time.
Of course, time to replenish The Lead Pile. The Lead Gods must be smiling on me. Free shipping offer seems to expire on OCT 12. Did I mention a secret password to get the free shipping?
