A little over 100 bucks in duty fees!!  OUCH!!!
Anyone else get pinched by Uncle Sam on overseas orders?? I think the cap before duty fees are charged is $199??
So much for a good price on something when you get hit like that!

Yep. Getting close to half I think. Nice to see when they force drug tests and limit children to none.

From where? What and how much? Get all sorts off stuff from Russia, never so much as a word from customs - so far.

They need to say it's a gift or lower the value. There's some ways to avoid it I think.

Should try living in New Zealand.  Postage is often more than the item....and sometimes Her Majesty's NZ Govt want a decent cut above that!
