I’m categorizing this topic under Winning Wednesday because if you can save money with this, you’ve won a lifehack contest.
I first encountered this idea from my friend Sam after whining for about a year that my Google Nexus 4 from 2012 was dying. It fake-died on me multiple times. My sister would call and I wouldn’t be able to swipe to answer the phone. So when the new Moto X Pure came out this year (look at that bamboo!), he sent me info on Shipitto.com, which allows you to purchase a US-only item, ship it to their warehouses, and then mail forward it on to Canada. I haven’t used this service yet because the Android pure Nexus 5x came out (!), but I wanted to put together a little round-up of reviews and see if any of you out there have positive or negative anecdotes:
Note: I found more negative reviews online for shipping to Australia and Namibia, but I am keeping this Canada-focused.
Positive reviews at Sitejabber.
Mixed reviews on TrustPilot, but there is one positive review in there from Sherwood Park!
Mixed (mostly negative) reviews at Sitejabber.
