Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

Tax free shopping

Post by FrankPintor » Sat Dec 02, 2017 12:13 pm

I’m checking iPhone prices in the region, here in Buenos Aires it’s ridiculously expensive, across the river in Uruguay it’s a bit less and I can recover 14.4% of the VAT when coming back. The prices in Chile are lower (but the plane ticket is more expensive), and according to the Global Blue website it’s not possible to recover any of the VAT. What do the experts here say?

Oh, Che Frank has a job here 😊 I was sent to take up a project at a telecoms company here. You know you just have to follow the money 😉

It’s really really nice here,not at all what I expected, and I get to extend my pan hispanic vocabulary with new choice rioplatense words like boludece and the like 😂
