How does duty free shopping work?

Jump to last reply

I've always just walked past the duty free shopping stores because we usually don't have time to shop, and they don't seem to offer great bargains.

However, I am enamored of Calvados. We were returning from England to the US, and had some time, and I noticed that they had Calvados in the duty free store. Our flight was from Heathrow to Chicago to Cleveland. Since we were inside security, I saw no problem carrying the Calvados onto the Heathrow/ Ohare flight, but I knew we would have to pass through security again in Ohare, and I would have a banned liquid in my possession, unless I stashed it in my checked luggage as we passed through customs.

Is that an accepted procedure for dealing with such purchases? Or is there an alternative.
