Shop up a storm in the USA this Black Friday with PacMe

NEWSFLASH MAMAS! For the non-shopaholics amongst you, tomorrow night (Friday 28 November) marks the start of “Black Friday”, traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year in the cheap and plentiful shopping mecca that is the U.S. of A. After a quick weekend breather you’ll also want to fire up the laptop for Cyber Monday on 1 December, the biggest online shopping day of the year and a particular bonanza for online fashion deals.

Have we got you excited? Of course, half the time we try to shop online from Singapore, we get bummer messages like “Content not available” or “Shipping unavailable to your region”. Almost just as bad is when you’ve scored a fabulous find, only to discover it will cost three times as much – often hundreds of dollars – to ship it here. Never fear, mamas, PacMe is here to save the day (and your holiday shopping sanity).

Based in the U.S. state of Oregon (conveniently sales tax-free, cha-ching!), PacMe caters to those who want to shop online in the U.S., then consolidate their packages to have them shipped overseas in one go. It’s brilliant if you haven’t got a U.S. mailing address, or you want to avoid the headache of tracking 10 different packages.

To make sure you’re in fighting form to score the best deals, PacMe has shared this list of top online retailers on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They’ve also put together some key shopping and shipping tips:

  • Weight matters: The first kg of any shipment is always the most expensive. All the more reason to shop up a storm, because the more you ship at one time, the more you save.
  • … And size, too: Don’t ship that stuffed animal by itself. It costs the same to add clothes, shoes and books to the same size box — another reason to keep shopping! PacMe will collect all your goodies and make sure they are packed tightly in one box to save you shipping fees.
  • To maximise savings, search for coupon codes and stores that offer free shipping within the USA.
  • Don’t forget that Singapore charges GST on purchases over $400 (including shipping fees). Also make sure to check Singapore’s list of controlled and prohibited goods.

Cha-ching again! PacMe is offering a free lifetime membership (a $100 value!) to all Sassy Mama readers. Just make sure to use the promo code “sassy-2014” when you sign up, mamas.

Visit www.pacme.com for more details.

Happy shopping, and may the retail odds be ever in your favour!

It's one of the things we love about living in tropical Singapore... we have an excuse to eat ice cream everyday. Yay!
