SorenethI can't believe how painfully slow this whole process is, i bought a card to enter the step up process mid october, i am starting to wonder if i ll ever recieve it before the 40xx generation appears
ozTravmanJust got my customs tax for the UK. Its 20% of what I paid for the stepup, plus a fee. Which would be correct even for an RMA since its the difference between what you already paid including VAt and this product. What EVGA should have done is applied for a VAT exemption from Germany since they are exporting the product. It'll be interesting to see if anyone can get the VAT refunded, but I think it would need to be refunded from Germany and not UK which may be difficult.
ozTravmanYeah I agree. I just double checked mine and i was charged on the value and not on the amount paid. So I think you definately have a legitmate chance of getting a refund there. You may have to prove you sent them the original card, not hard to do, but seems reasonable.
Savarok-Well it finally happened, my card has arrived. Zero customs fees on the way through. What a struggle that was.
Savarok-Thanks all, obviously I'll stick be around to update the rest of this list. I can't leave you all hanging, its quite the band of Brothers/Sisters here with this now.
Savarok- 0 customs charges was the little good luck I had on the whole thing. Realistically EVGA have been great, the silicon shortage is what shafted this all. Well that and UPS for me.
