AMS=LHR-ATL Duty free purchase

Can you make duty free purchases in AMS if you are making a transit stop at LHR? The duty free folks in AMS weren’tsure. It would seem ok because I’m only changing planes at LHR.

I've found the same with DL UK vs US. An ATL-EBB is often 3-400$ cheaper if I book on the US site; same route and fare basis.
