Can I buy a magic band in the uk?

Pretty much as the title suggests, can I buy a magic band in the uk? We're only going for a couple of days in Disney and staying offsite so don't have them included. I only really want one so I can use all the photos/videos with the memory maker.
As we have limited time in the park and will already be spending time on the first day requesting a DAS pass I don't want to spend more time buying and setting up a magic band, so wondered if there was anywhere I can buy one and have it sent to me here? Ive looked online but can only seem to find the wraps that ship here.

I have one which I don't want, as we'll be getting the "free" ones through ATD. The one I have is unlinked and unused. PM me if you're interested

Unless they are in a sealed package with the serial number not visanle I personally would not buy a second hand one or one off ebay, its too easy to sell ones that have already been linked to an MDE account.

The same warning applies to buying off blusteryday (I kid, Rob ).

As long as the seller is legit, has a good record, and it clearly states that the MagicBand is unused and still in the original packaging then the OP should be ok buying from eBay. If the band isn't as described then they can contest the purchase with eBay and get their money back.

Of course, it will cost more buying the band from eBay than in Orlando. The price will include shipping from the US and a little profit as well as the price of the MagicBand.

Thinking of getting my wife a nice one for her b'day before we go. Where can you get the magic bands linked if you buy them here?
