a while back just used thier BuyForMe service, sadly it no longer free upgrade to express delivery for UOB cards but still waive 5% fee.

Maybe have to switch to using Amex card but the Prime program don't seems attractive as compared to UOB previously with 5% fee waiver for BFM and free upgrade to express delivery.

does any other card using CGW offer better?

hi guys,

i have ordered some 30 pieces clothes to a friend in the US. Will be getting him to send it to CGW or Borderlinx. However, since the clothes are not shipped directly from the merchant to CGW/ Borderlinx and I have asked my friend to remove the invoice, may I know how will they check the declared value?

Does this mean that i can just input any value, say 50usd, so that it will definitely be below the gst limit? and since they do not have the invoice they cannot check the value?

thanks!!

If the items are all yours, you can have him remove all packaging and labels, and ship it as personal items with $0 value.

Alternatively, just have him print a simple $30 invoice ($1 per item) and stick it in the package. Look at it from a different perspective - he bought the items first, and is now selling the items to you at that price. You didn't buy from the merchant, but are buying second hand clothes from an individual instead.

The downside to under-declaring is, if the package is lost or damaged, that is how much your carrier will reimburse you. So, if the courier loses the entire package, you'll receive $30 insurance compensation. (The other downside of avoiding taxes? Just look at Greece ...)

...

Then I got another 2 parcels left. I was just trying to play around with it. If shipped together, the total value exceeds $400 and total weight will be 5-6kg. The total amount comes up to usd 95plus.

...
Huhhhhh...is it??!! But I made sure the total value is less than $400 leh...How come still charged GST?!?!

How come suddenly back at Cincinnati again?? I know if your parcel comes after 330 on certain days you wont see an update till 3am next morning because it will take the Air Hong Kong cargo flight here. Maybe it was flown back to US by accident??

It means parcel returned back to USA.

Could be due to parcel damaged during transit, insufficient delivery details, etc

Thats if your parcel is not lost on the way to the comsgateway address by US postal service. Had that happen to my ssd before black friday in September. Had to email and request redelivery before 5pm. Looks like its gonna happen again to my niece's package this time.
