    Brownells trouble

    Bought a A2 buffer tube and a armourers set off brownells, totalled about $98 usd, after shipping it was $136nzd but the price has been updating in my bank every couple of days and has now totalled $170! Anyone else have this issue?

    Cheers

    Some places don't charge until it's shipped or packed - during which time the company only has a "hold" of funds on your card in their currency ie USD so if there are any currency fluctuations during that time your nzd price will change also.

    Parcel post priority international mail. Has the US dollar fluctuated that much since Thursday?!

    The finance world is in a very interesting place at the moment mate. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Don't forget transaction fees and currency conversion fees your bank adds.

    I believe you have missed a step: $98USD = 136NZD (there was no shipping in there) The shipping brought it up to $170NZD.

    Just be glad the NZ $ isn't at 2009 levels.
