MyUS – the best USA forwarding service i have so far

In continuation to my latest experience with Global Shopaholics, though positive, i am almost on lookout for cheaper options.

The previous time is charger 16 lb (7kg) dimensional weight, though actual weight only 4kg. Shipping fee paid is US$93.46

For this time, i am trying my US as they are having promotion for Mastercard, free 1 year membership, with 30% off shipping fee for first month.  I got some items from USA site, and after repacked it is 5.3 lb, which is 2.5kg. I was charge total $53, after 30 discount, it is only $39.

When the package reach me, it is delivered to me via Fedex, the documents did said my purchase has RM58.22 Import GST and RM5 “Free Commercial Zone” charge, total RM63.22, but i am happy to say this import cost is bornt by FedEX, i don’t need to pay for this tax amount, unlike Comgateway/Global Shopoholics which uses DHL, and i need to pay these import tax and charge.

although i really don’t get how my purchase – worth USD 110 and shipping USD39, total is around USD150, which converted to about RM600 can incur RM63.22 charge. The document did say it is 6% tax, but it is more than 10% to me. Anyhoo, as long as i am not paying, it doesn’t really matter

I really like MyUS TruePrice: https://www.myus.com/benefits/shipping/true-price/ calculation method which does not take into consideration the dimensional weight. Save so much when items are like shoes which are generally larger dimensionally.

After trying Comgateway, and Global Shopaholics, i am seeing i think i will like MyUS much more due to TruePrice price calculation method.

No monetary / non-monetary paid to me to promote MyUS, go try MyUS, they have promo where by MasterCard user can get free 2 year membership, first month with 30% off shipping, subsequent months 20%: https://www.myus.com/welcome/mastercardpremium/

Below are my previous shopping experience:

Pudu_Hakka_Mee_1

Yummy noodle made in house. According to online, they recently had a fire in that area, and it seems like they are now in a proper shoplot. Picture of the shop lot in pictagram.

Pudu_Hakka_Mee_2

“Rat-tail” noodle made in house, the texture is different, feel more healthy as it is not the usual  artificially-bouncy-transparent type.

Very delicious. Yum~

Address: Chun Kei Tai Bu Noodle

No2G Jalan Sayur, Off Jalan Pudu, Pudu, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur
