I've complained on my blog before about the lack of good sales in Canada (compared to the US) and the costly shipping/duty when ordering online from US stores. I recently discovered that if you have an American Express card you get a free Premium membership for I'll give full disclosure and say that I actually work for Amex but I've never written about my work before and I'm writing this post because I really think this service is genius! makes it easy to shop from US sites that don't ship to Canada and avoid high shipping rates and taxes. When you sign up it gives you a US mailing address you can use whenever you shop at US retailers. Your packages will first be sent to the US address and are then sent to you from You save a lot on shipping/duty and markups when online retailers change their prices for Canadian customers. I can already see this making a big difference for me as I'm an avid online shopper.

I haven't used it yet but will report back on the shipping rates (did I mention that I also get a 20% off discount with my Amex) once I've had an opportunity to test it out.
