    I know, dumb question.
    But how can I find out what the Euro prices are as U.S. dollars since many on here in the U.S. order from that site.
    Is there a special conversion w/a U.S. credit card or a fee?
    I'm clueless.
    thanks

    If you make an order in a foreign currency with a credit card you will be charged whatever the exchange rate happens to be when the charge is made. There is no extra fee AFAIK (there may be for some currency conversions, but not for the euro). You can find out what the current price is by using an online currency converter like this one; the results may not exactly match your final charge since online stores usually wait until shipping to charge your credit card, by which point the exchange rate will have probably fluctuated somewhat, but you can get a fairly close ballpark figure.

    Just be careful when converting as Benson's World is in the United Kingdom which is not on the Euro. Otherwise, you could be shocked when you get your credit card bill as the British Pound is worth quite a bit more than a Euro.

    http://www.xe.com has a currency converter
    Converting from Euro, it's virtually 1-1 right now

    Jeff jims, here's an example of a UK DVD from www.bensonsworld.co.uk: priced at £12.79+.50 S&H to the States would be $21.33 total in US Dollars.

    Thanks all, very helphul info!!

    Unfortuantly, when I filled my shopping cart, it would not accept my email address. Each time I enter it, it comes back asking for my email, then when I type it in again, it does the same thing. Maybe its my webtv?
