This deals note looks at how to get the cheapest genuine UGG Australia boots. Yet in Australia, the word Ugg is a generic term for sheepskin boots; Aussie folk have been making ugg-style sheepskin boots for over a century.
When people talk about ‘Uggs’ here in the UK, they’re often referring to the UGG Australia brand made by a firm called Deckers; the ones all the celebs sport. Due to the popularity of Uggs, the internet is awash with dodgy sites and eBay sellers, selling knock-off Ugg Australias. These cheapo versions are usually lined with synthetic, rather than real sheepskin. All the sites in this note have been checked out and have good feedback from MoneySavers.
How to check that boots are genuine UGG Australia
The famous UGG Australia brand is made by Deckers. If that's what, you're after there are ways to spot imposters.
UGG Australia boots have a large middle G on the logo.
They have real sheepskin fur inside: fakes often use synthetic.
They are made in New Zealand, Australia, and more recently, China.
Alternatively, you can check the on the official Uggs website to see if the the website you're thinking about buying your boots from is on its legitimate online retailer list.
There's an interesting explanation of the history of the Ugg trademark on Wikipedia.
Paying for goods from overseas
Using the right piece of plastic is the cheapest way to pay for goods from overseas sites, but make sure it's the right plastic; read the Spending Overseas article for details.
Credit cards are better than debit cards!
Spend on your credit card and you have more rights than you do on a debit card. This is all about Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act which makes the card provider jointly liable with the retailer if anything should go pear-shaped.
Pay for goods over £100 fully or partially on your credit card and if something goes wrong, you can simply make a claim directly against the card provider without having to contact the retailer at all. This counts for overseas purchases too. Read a full guide toSection 75 Protection.
Don't forget to factor in customs charges and delivery times
If you're new to overseas shopping, remember that items can take longer to arrive than those bought in the UK: often two to three weeks. You’ll also have to pay customs duty on goods coming into the UK from non-EU countries. There's a full explanation on customs charges in the Buy from the US article. From experience, MoneySavers are being charged £20 to £25 in customs on Uggs.
What size to buy?
