I have recently discovered something interesting while shopping online on Amazon.com . It is probably old news for frequent online shoppers, but i think it is a good tip that everyone can benefit from. I will explain more in the following review.
In a previous article : Online shopping solutions for Ruwais i have mentioned the SnS service. While that service is crucial for online shopping from around the world, i mainly use it to shop from USA, on amazon.com. The SnS warehouse from USA is in state of New York, and all sales (including online shopping) are subject to a specific 8.875% local tax. What can we do to avoid those taxes ? We can change our freight company, we can select to buy from other sellers or we can have our orders delivered directly to our country.
Still, If you like shopping from amazon.com with SnS, i guess that you also tend to get the FREE Super Saver Shipping option on your purchases. So we are willingly accepting to wait 7-10 days to have the order shipped to our USA freight address in order to not pay additional shipping charges. Then we accept to wait another 4-5 working days to have Aramex deliver the package to our UAE location.
