Hi guys

I want to take advantage of the Black Friday special and buy a google home mini from US, buy my order cancel straight away. I tried google store US and Best Buy, no luck.

How can I buy stuff from US?

I already have a US address with NZPost

Cheers

J

I just used Walmart and paid via PayPal. My credit card has been charged and order is pending.

There is a bit of discussion about it here https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=164&topicid=225549&page_no=1#.

 

I've tried few of the shops and wasn't successful, then I've tried Walmart through Google Express and so far it hasn't be cancelled.

 

 

 

People were reporting success with B&H paying with PayPal...

I ordered two Google Home minis from B&H last night using my NZ debit card and it worked just fine shipping to YouShop.

 

They shipped them this morning and after that I received my two $10 gift cards via email. Then this afternoon I used the $20 of gift cards and ordered a Google Home and another mini so hopefully my second order will ship as well.

Tried around midday today with CC and it was saying that the limit was reached (not sure if it was due many people using same YouShop address or same number or something).

I sent my second order at 12:30pm today and it went through so its pretty strange that its not letting you.

 

Where exactly are you getting stopped in the order process? I tried now, just short of the place order button and I am not getting any limit reached error.

After paying and placing order. But I was using guest checkout so might have had something to do with that...

I was logged into my account, used YouShop address for shipping and my NZ address for billing. Also if you suspect it was YouShop address related did you have the suite number in address line 2 because I noticed yesterday when adding it that default behaviour of the website is to clear that line unless you tell it to go with what you inputted.
