i was down there today too. Nexus line was crazy and I got pulled in for my purchases

$450 camera : had to pay taxes.
two 6 packs of beer cost me an additional $14. Maybe they weren't happy with that. Normally they don't care if I bring over a bottle of wine.

First time I've had to pay anything extra for a couple years of having items delivered to PR. Still cheaper than Canada.

Maybe I spoke too soon because it appears my package is delayed, I'm assuming held up by the customs backlog

They probably charged you because you brought back more than a 6 pack. I've brought back 1x 6 pack or 1x bottle of wine most of the time I go down there and they're fine with it.

Haven't been in this thread for a while. A friend of mine mentioned about 5Dpackages, so I went to this thread to check out reviews.

Surely enough, it's been the big topic in the last few pages.
Just wondering is this REVSCENE5 code expired now? I just signed up but didn't find a code box to type it in.

I'm sure if Jamie reads this, he'll credit it to you. He's a nice enough guy so I suspect he'll do that.

If not, you can always go through the referral route and have someone refer you and you'll get the credit too!

Most likely not a big deal, went through with $1200 before, just got waived through, or perhaps I was just lucky that time.

You were extremely lucky.

The first time I've ever been taxed was on tires worth $600

All good! I have a few friends that I need to refer anyways

Today was actually my first time at 5d. Great outfit. Was somewhat busy when I drove by, but empty after I filled up on gas. In and out in 30s. Just the way I like it!

You definitely have my business unless I know I need to pick up during some weird hour. Thanks!

Thread revival.

Inout Parcel in Point Roberts is now my default shipping destination. Its faster, closer, cheaper and open 24/7. Used them for the first time today.

PR Shell is my second choice if I have several small items to buy. Its cheap and they hold stuff longer. Plus they have gas and coffee.

TSB is now my number 3 choice. Nice folks working there but they are too busy. Sometimes you have to wait to pay in the store then wait again at the trailers. I will only go there if I need to send stuff out.

YO guys, does anyone here cross the border to ship items from canada to US post office regularly as commercial goods? I got in trouble few times with the border people because I misunderstood their procedures, ie, not providing my ebay invoices and not going into the commercial lane at the truck crossing, also not providing a manifest that they wanted, anyways, they gave me a hard time after those few times and I got flagged,

the border guy said next time I cross with commercial goods, I will be fined $5000, is that true or is it a scare tactic they use, has anyone ever been fined by the US custom guys? ... they said next time i cross with commercial goods, I need to declare it formally, anyone know how to do this
