    Default Mail forwarding questions?

    Hi everyone

    So I regretably went on the Baby Guess website this morning and they are having a sale and now I want to buy some (well maybe lots) of their clothes for our baby girl.

    Problem is they don't ship to Australia. Now I know there are mail forwarding services but I just don't know how reliable or safe they are to use?

    Do you use this service? Who do you use? What are you charged roughly for shipping? I am buying about $200 worth of clothes in total but I don't want to be paying over $100 for shipping because then it's like paying full price
    I believe the package shouldn't weigh anymore than 5kg's and that's the max!

    Any experiences/pearls of wisdom are appreciated

    TIA.

    Go to the hopshopgo.com website, I've used them now for about 3 years, they set up a PO box for you in the states so you can have all your purchases sent there , then they forward them to you - the postal prices are on the site , I usually get about $350 of Ralph Lauren stuff and postage works out about $80 (about 20 % ish of what you buy) which I'm assuming similar to Guess is still another 50% cheaper than what you pay in Australia!
    I only buy ( like now) when there are 25% off or more sales so
    In theory your postage is free! ( plus they have so much more variety than what we can ever get here!)

    Really do your research. Some of them charge a heck of a lot and are not worth ot. I'll pm you.
