That drop in the value of the pound is going to be offset to a degree by the generally higher cost of shipping anything anywhere these days. Still gonna be a bit spendy due to international shipping, but depending on what you want it might just be the difference between "definitely out of my range" and "Let me check my budget and check the couch for spare change"... As of the time I posted this post, the US dollar and the pound were almost equal (1 pound = 1.08 US dollars, according to www.xe.com currency calculator), whereas in the recent past the pound was about equal to 1.5 US dollars. According to the currency calculator I used, the pound is currently equal to 1.47 Canadian dollars. Yes. While listed currency conversions are technically what the big banks get and not you (most, but not all, charge a small fee for currency conversion), the better the exchange rate the further your money goes. Conversely it makes it more expensive for the other guy to import stuff, so the cost of Reaper minis in England will go up. To use Jack's numbers, if you were to load up your cart with £100 worth of minis (generally enough to get free shipping) it would currently cost $108. Pre Brexit the same £100 would have cost $150. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
