    Default If anyone is interested in a US parcel forwarding company......

    Get onto myus.com
    They're amazing!
    I did a big order from Old Navy and Gap, and because I had a US address I was able to use their discounts - 20 - 50% off.
    I paid something like $10-15 to myus.com to set up my address and then my packages were shipped free of charge (my order was over $50).
    EDIT: my packages were shipped free of charge from Gap to myus.com

    My packages arrived from Gap bit by bit over the last week, I sent a ship request on Friday morning and THEY ARRIVED TODAY!!!!!!!!!

    I think you can order Gap stuff from Australia now can't you? Not sure how the price compares with the US though.

    You can order Gap to ship directly to Australia - but that means they won't honour any of the discounts advertised on their website or coupons etc. Boo.
    I have ordered Gap products to come directly to Australia and I just think that for me it was well worth it to do the mail forwarding - for the tiny bit extra it costs in shipping, it gets here so quickly and you can use the awesome coupons! The discounts are good enough that it covered the one time set up of the account, the little bit extra in shipping for the company to make their cut and I still came out ahead

    I use Hopshopgo - I just looked up the shipping costs on myus and it seems to be more expensive ?

    I compared myus.com prices to two others, can't remember the names sorry and they came out ahead. I don't think I looked at Hopshopgo though - Great to hear they have competitive prices - that might be good for other Hubbers to compare.

    This is the first time I've used something like this and I was so amazed at how easy it was!
    And how quick the shipping was!
    I lived in Darwin for a while and to get anything within Australia to Darwin in a hurry was a struggle, and here I've got a package from the US sent on Friday and it arrived 10am Monday morning. Amazing!
