Anyone keen to buy a SanDisk 64GB microSDXC Class 10 card with me from Amazon? it's half price on Amazon atm. They do not ship this to NZ and I will have this forwarded to YouShop. It's half price atm. Figured, If I buy 2 of these then it will save a bit on shipping costs from YouShop.

Cheapest in NZ is close to $150 from a reputable online shop. Will come out to close ~ NZ$70 incl shipping from YouShop if we split. Will order via Geekzone's affiliate link.

Where do I go in youshop.co.nz to see if stuff has arrived? Purchase history is blank. It went out for delivery ages ago so should be there now I would think?

You get an email from Youshop to let you know that an package has arrived. Please login and pay for shipping. Might want to track your parcel from the company you purchased the product from. Ground shipping in US can take up to 7 business day.

Man, I bought a box of these Blair's chips cause they taste good apparently. Box was NZ$46. Weight as per youshop is 2.2KG but volumetric weight is 6.5KG. Going to cost me NZ$79 to ship these potato chips (28 in a box). Kiwibank10 discount code only works once/account so cannot even use that anymore.

These kettle chips better taste good. Costing me NZ$4.5/packet for a 2 ounce.

I would not expect youshop to tell get hold of you immediately  They will have to process the item which includes weighing and confirming value before they can contact you with the cost. Patience grass hopper ;) The kindle I ordered should be arriving there tomorrow I think so our items my finish up in the same container.

Edit: Update just got email from Youshop :)

Has anyone tried a more expensive purchase. ?? I've been thinking  about a laptop costing around $US1400.00. What would be the hazards?

Make sure you buy the $6 insurance from YousShop once they recieved the package which covers for damage/lost items etc. anything under US$250 is covered for free of charge. Also make sure you take GST from customs into account. Try and buy a brand/model that offers international warranty so it's covered here as well.

Some places e.g. BH Photo/Video will ship laptops directly to NZ, for what it's worth.

I have 3 people now incl me wanting the microSDXC card. Cannot take any more on board as customs might ping me for GST thinking, i am doing this for commercial purposes.

I'm wanting to order a Lenovo Y580 and one of the new 840 pro series ssd's from Samsung. Can anyone give me advice whether to go to prezoom or YouShop? how much it will cost? And has anyone lied about the price and gotten away with it through customs ? Thanks :)

A few of us have used Youshop without any issues. Declaring false cost to customs can get you into prison or $10,000 fine.
