PRICES YOU PAY AT MRE.
The RRP price is the full price of any item, as shown on manufacturers price lists, and is higher than you pay at MRE. Why do we show this ? Because it makes our pricing very attractive for you to shop at MRE.
Mail Price Discount
MRE Mail Price is the normal price that we offer to every mail-order customer. This makes it attractive to buy online as the reduction will often cover the postage costs of having items delivered to your door for you. Therefore, it can often be no more expensive to buy online than to pay the normal RRP.
Club Price Discount
There are 2 ways of paying the Club Price Discount.
1. We believe in supporting enthusiasts whenever we can, and are happy to offer a lower price to validated members of some recognised clubs. Members of the clubs on our club list will automatically pay the lower MRE Club price after registering online with MRE. See Note 2 below.
2. Club Price Discount of 15% will automatically apply if you have completed orders for £250 in the 12 months preceding your current order. See below for more details.
Star Price Discount
We like to look after our regular customers, and shopping with MRE will save you money as you will become a Star Customer and get our best price on all the items you buy. We'll keep a record of your purchases, and the MRE Star price will be applied automatically to your orders. Star Price Discount of 20% will automatically apply if you have completed orders for £500 in the 12 months preceding your current order. We believe this is more discount than available at any other supplier.
Overseas Customers - no VAT
We recognise that we have many regular customers around the world, and can offer more attractive prices to our valued overseas friends who buy from MRE. Even when paying International Shipping costs, this makes our prices very attractive for customers around the world. If you live outside the UK we automatically take the VAT tax off your purchases. The same MRE price discounts apply, we'll keep a record of your purchases, and the correct MRE price will be applied automatically to your orders.
Please note there is no VAT on books, magazines, and catalogues.

Club Member and Star Customer prices only apply to completed sales. We accept advance orders for all items due for release, but the appropriate price is only applied at time of sale. Therefore, ordering items that are not available yet does NOT automatically apply Club Member and Star Customer prices.
We can save orders and combine them into a single parcel if requested. This can save a lot of postage costs for customers, especially overseas. Please contact us for details. When we do this we calculate the new shipping cost and make a refund. We have to pay overheads to do this, so make a nominal charge of £1.00 per order for UK customers and £2.00 per order for overseas customers, to defray our payment admin charges.
