Have Your Very Own U.S. Mailing AddressI know a lot of my readers are from outside of the US and a lot of the times, sales offers leave them in a slump. I’ve personally witnessed the sad sight that is international shipping.

That’s why a lot of times, when I hold contests and giveaways, I try not to leave out the international guys and gals, because – why can’t we all just shop along? 🙂 Apart from partaking in swaps with international beauts (they always have stuff I never knew about!), one can’t help but wish for a simpler way to get it together! Enter! I came across this site not too long ago (through MegsMakeup) and it seems interesting. Read on!

It basically is a PO Box (never heard of one? Post Office Box) for an international buyer in the US. It gives you an address to list yourself under in the US, so that all the “applicable only to the US” offers no longer fly over your head. Then, they have a period of time for which you can hold the mail, or ship immediately to you, wherever you are.

The prices are still a bit steep if you ask me… but. Here’s what else I think:

  • you won’t necessarily know how appropriate it is for you until you try
  • it might work out well if you snag free shipping deals in the US
  • if you wait a bit longer so that they ship several mailings to you, it is cheaper
    and last but not least…
  • if you combine all the above & use regular rather than expedited shipping, that is by far the cheapest of all.

Here’s what they write on their site:

International Shipping with members receive deeply discounted shipping rates, exceptional customer service, 24/7 online access to their account, and access to other services.
