Dear all,
My German isn't that great and all I can seem to find is some sort of flat rate which would be of €6. Could anybody who has ordered games from amazon.de in the past indicate what kind of postage were they charged? I'm asking this since €6 sounds a bit too good to be true...
Thanks all in advance!

I have bought a couple of (small) games from amazon.de and the shipping has been €6, and I think that is a fixed rate. Simply go ahead and go through the order steps - On the last "Bestatigen" (Confirm) step you can see the shipping cost before your final confirmation of your order.

I've ordered over 150 euros of games from Amazon.de and yes the shipping was only €6.99

Enjoy, I know I did.

Cheers
David

Any bargains you would care to point out? I've searched on Amamzon.de in the past but after exchange rate etc UK sourced still seemed to be cheaper.

Well, I can't suggest anything in fact! I had stupidly selected a range of games that, I only realised a short while ago, were on sale from other retailers via amazon.de.

I usually pay attention to this detail but my thirst for bargains got the better of me when I wasted an hour finding what I thought were good deals. In reality, when I checked again later on, none of them turned out to be sold by amazon proper. Quite a disappointment!

I can otherwise tell you that spiele-offensive still has good deals on games that are underrated here on BGG but with definite substance, like Go West and Anasazi for about €4 each if I recall. There are a few other good ones too that I got a few months ago. Regarding postage, there is a flat rate around €14 or €16 or something like that to the UK so it is only worthwile if you order a large number of games.
Check: http://www.spiele-offensive.de/index.php?cmd=sonderangebote

Good luck!
