Here’s a Hot Tip that will save you a lot of money! The next time you’re buying something from the States, have the package shipped to a US Address that’s near the border and pick it up when it arrives. It’s a service called “U.S. Parcel Acceptance For Canadian Residents.” It’s cheap and very easy to do and it will save you a lot of money. I have used U.S. Parcel Acceptance many times in the past and have probably saved a couple thousand dollars from doing so over the years. I buy a ton of stuff shopping online and it’s shocking how everything is still a lot cheaper in the US even the dollar is pretty much par. Thanks to U.S. Parcel Acceptance For Canadian Residents, I can now take advantage of a lot of US Retailer’s Free Shipping within the US promos, or no longer care if they don’t ship to Canada, or worry about paying insane international shipping rates or brokerage fees.

How my wife could have save $75 if she used US Parcel Acceptance
Just to give you an example, my wife recently ordered a large makeup case on eBay without telling me about it. The eBay Seller was located in the US and offered Free Shipping within the US or $50 to ship to Canada. My wife paid $50 to ship it to our house in Canada. The package was shipped via UPS and when it arrived, they charged her an additional $46.18 in brokerage fees. She was furious and was not aware of the extra fees and had no choice but to pay it. Had my wife told me in advance prior to buying it, I would have advised her to ship it to the Lewiston UPS Store. Had she done so, she could have taken advantage of the seller’s Free Shipping (save $50) and would have only had to pay $10 parcel acceptance fee at the Lewiston UPS Store and about $10 in taxes at the border instead of the $96.18 ($50+46.18). On this transaction alone, she could have saved $75! This was a pretty cheap item. Imagine how much more she could have saved if it was a more expensive or larger item!
