Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Christian, who writes:
Hi Thomas. Amazon have dropped the price of the Field BT yet again. This time to $70.99 shipped! This is now the lowest price I’ve ever seen for the Field BT. Perhaps they’re discontinuing the model? It’s a fine radio (very sensitive) with amazing audio. I paid a bit more for mine when it was on sale but I still think it was a good price. As I always say, this is Amazon so there’s no way to know how long this price will hold. I’m considering another one as a Christmas gift.
Thank you, Christian!
As of today this deal is now open to Australians! Amazon has done a backflip and allowed aussies to order from Amazon US again (with 10% GST (sales tax) added on top), with it’s very cheap shipping rates.
Including shipping to Australia, this costs $147 AUD (about $106 USD)
Using a US-AU shipping service to bring it down here would have cost at least $60 USD for the shipping, on account of it’s almost 3kg (6 pounds) of weight. Last week this would have cost about $185 to bring to Australia.
I already have one of these radios, not sure I need another one.
Interesting old radio:
And both the Executive Traveler & Mini Compact have 20% off coupons.
