    I use boxhop. I read quite a few reviews before joining one but in the end I joined boxhop because they had a special where you had free access to specials for 12 months. I've used it a few times with no issues at all.

    Boxhopgo had a lot of bad reviews on a vogue forum when it first set up, but that was a long time ago.

    Most of the sites have a section where you can put in the dimensions of a package and estimate postage. I didn't really bother comparing sites on cost.

    I've found it costs around $27 for a basic parcel from boxhop. Delivery is quick.

    I use HopShopGo and I've never had a problem. Communication has been good. Reasonably quick to respond. E.g if I want to shop sales that only go for 3 days, providing I order at the beginning, I've never missed a sale price.
    I mainly use their "buy for me" service. They charge you 10% above the purchase price for them to buy for you instead of you buying with your own paypal or credit card and just using their US address. I've bought enough times that I get it for 7% instead of 10% and I get express postage free too.
    Their postage might be a bit on the pricey side. I don't know. I'm waiting for 8kg of stuff to arrive and it cost me around $80AUD to post.

    Macys
    Baby Gap and Gap
    Babys R Us - things I've found cheaper than here
    Nordstrom
    Check out online when the sales are coming. You can guarantee that the big stores will always have 4th of July Sales, Labour Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas sales. Great time to buy.
    The other good time is just before season changes. E.g if you notice they start bringing winter gear into the shops here, look online in the US for end of season summer stuff for next year. I bought 2 DKNY winter coats from Nordtsrom that were originally over $300 each and I bought them for around $80 each and they are beautiful.
