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?
