question about the new Harrods bear

Sometimes shop assistants are told not to mention it (or play dumb) for O/S buyers unless they mention it first . . . and sometimes you have to demand it ! Then there's the paperwork and the wait for a refund.
Still, if you are getting things cheaper from O/S, then you figure that it's a bargain already and don't bother to claim the tax back. (That's what all governments rely on I think - supports their travel and entertainment budgets).

From personal experience, the UK is the easiest place to get VAT deducted. SA's easily give out information.
Canada is easy on some things and tough on others. If I remember correctly, hotels were the easiest.
Czech Republic is the most difficult. Most stores don't automatically deduct. It's difficult to get help. The airport is the only place I know and it's time consuming. My husband and I had to figure it out ourselves.

He is so very cute . Thanks Lisa, and everyone on the site without this site and the feedback from everyone I would never have known I could call Harrod's & order their solids.
