TomTom SparkThis is really great news.

You can get these watches shipped directly from Amazon.com to India, via the international shipping option. How much do you save doing so, versus buying it in India from say Amazon.in, you ask? Here’s the math:

I checked this for the basic TomTom Spark model listed currently for $149.98 on Amazon.com. Adding to the cart showed an additional charge of $29.99 for shipping and handling, so about 20% over the listed price. Total cost: $180.

Cost in India of the same watch on Amazon.in is currently Rs 11,899/-. Buying from Amazon.com US store will cost us $180, or Rs 12,121/-, almost same as Amazon.in price. But when you add the $50 discount, this will become $130, so, Rs 8,755/-. Now that’s some serious money saved (about Rs 3,000) over the India rates for this sale period.

If you are looking to get a decent GPS watch, well, this is a great time to go for one!

  1. Hi Tanvir,
    Have you ever imported a watch earlier? I guess you are forgetting custom duty, which is huge. Please apply that and your discount will vanish.

    1. Amresh, yes, I have imported several items from Amazon before. Incidentally, they used to tell the tax component upfront earlier, strange that they no longer do so. Here’s an old listing for TomTom Runner on Amazon:

      Price $ Shipping $ P + S Tax $ Total $ Tax % Converted INR Price
      TomTom Runner GPS 99.99 7.91 107.9 33.34 141.24 30.90 9462.37

      This shows shipping cost as just $7.91 while for Spark it is shown as a very high $29.99. Seems very strange, and like you said, not a value option now.
