When we took our trip to Punta Cana last week, I saw the Duty-Free Shop and wondered how many people actually buy a bunch of things from there. Apparently… lots of people do.
But it turns out certain items aren’t that great of a value at all. In fact, some are practically a rip-off. Like wine. Australian site finder.com.au reveals you’ll save a buck or two at best versus back home. Don’t bother with chocolates; they’re marked up an insane amount. And that bottle of perfume? It’s practically the same price in the regular stores.
However do stock up on hard alcohol, make-up, and if you must, cigarettes, as this is where you’ll find the best savings.
