Shopping in Florida

Do you stick to the rules and only bring back $360 worth of stuff when you shop? We wanted to buy a new iPhone on top of the normal shopping we do here and that is more than the allowance, more than double. What do I have to do?

Get rid of he box and reciept and whos to say you didnt own it before you went out there. I doubt they are going to look into it that much, epecially if the phones in your pocket / hand bag on return.

Im not commenting on what you or the OP should do; others are likely to be more knowledgeable on that.
However, re your comment that without a box or receipt, whos to say ... ? The serial number will tell UK customs where it was bought.

The chances are you wouldnt be stopped as UK customs tend to be more interested in flights arriving from other destinations; however, if you were & they questioned it, they dont have to prove you bought it in the US; you have to prove that you didnt!

Be honest 4 years ago I went through the red Channel with with about 1,000 worth of goods bought in the USA they were not electrical goods. I was the only one there after, picking up the phone, a lady officer came out and asked why I was down the red Channel explained I have bought about 1,000 worth of goods in the USA she verbally checked what I had and waved me through.

I very much doubt that between us we even hit 100!

That tends to be comprised of Aussie shampoo, tin foil, some sweets for the Grandchildren, herbs for cooking and other such sundries.

Is the saving that great for an iPhone? Doesn't it then need a UK plug when home at added cost?

We dont count, but jointly we are unlikely to exceed.
