Can you suggest where to order an item from?
This is a very common question I get asked, however, it is difficult to answer as there are so many great shops in the USA that you can order from. Here are very good places to begin search for your item.
- google shopping - the price search engine from Google. A great place to start although it can sometime be a little overwhelming at times.
- amazon - you can find almost anything here. My USA partners have amazon prime accounts so they get free 2 day shipping on any item eligible for amazon prime. It is also a great place to visit to find out what the shipping weight of an item is. Watch out for the third party sellers as some are very poor.
- pricewatch - one of the best places to find where to order electronic goods and software, especially computer parts. It
is important to remember that the cheapest company may not be the best to order from so check the reviews careful before choosing a preferred supplier.
- newegg - offer great prices and generally have good stock levels on computer parts and other electronic goods like digital cameras, etc. Newegg is also
a great place to read user reviews of various products.
- zappos - an excellent place to buy shoes from with a large range and great prices. Find the shoes you want here
in Australia then order from zappos.
- rei - sells outdoor and sporting clothing and equipment. Great range and much better prices than we get here in Australia. Free shipping can be slow.
- walmart - the online home of the US shopping behemoth. Some great deals are available. Check out the toy section if you have
- nike - a flash heavy site which favors style over function. It does have a great range of
clothes and shoes that never seem to make it to Australia. Click here for how to order Nike ID shoes.
- ralph lauren - often more than a 50% saving over Australian prices. The sale items are especially well priced.
- gap - the sales items are very good value. Remember we are six months behind fashion wise with the northern hemisphere so their sale items are our new releases. Gap now ship directly, but on occasion it can be cheaper to order via my service if you are ordering from some other stores too.
- eastbay - offer a good range of shoes. Most shoes can be shipped directly to Australia, but for those shoes that can't be (ascis are are good example) then my service can be of use.
One final suggestion I have is to look through our last 100 orders page. This shows what people are ordering right now and it will give you lots of ideas.
