#1 Line Up Your Schedule and Lock Key Shopping Dates
President’s Day in the United States is the third Monday of February every year, and major brands will offer huge offers. Make sure to check all the dates and expiry of these offers so you don’t miss out on anything. Whether it’s apparel, electronics, home decor, or appliances, everything will be available and on sale. President’s Day Sale and Valentine’s Day Deals may overlap so keep a close eye on the weekend of February 12 – February 15. Enjoy!
# 2. Keep an Eye Out on Flash Deals/ Limited Time Offers
Make sure you researched beforehand such as the average price of what you’ve wanted to buy or the cheapest platform to buy it from. In that way, when you see your desired products on sale, you can easily tell if it’s a steal or a trap. Make sure to buy it quickly and have it shipped to our US warehouses before it runs out of stock!
# 3. Prepare Your Shopping List and Create an Account to the Respective Online Store
Start formulating your shopping list now, add the product page to your favorite bookmarks, or pre-add it to your Wish List of the website. As long as the discounted price is launched in the next few days, you can directly add the product to the shopping cart without any hassle and proceed to checkout easily. Remember to fill in Buyandship’s Warehouse Address to your Address Book to save more time and score huge deals.
# 4. Prepare Your Credit Card and Apply for Paypal in Advance
Some overseas online stores in the United States may not accept foreign credit cards. Aside from that, there are also some brands that only accept Paypal as a payment method. So, in order to prevent this, shop on stores that accept foreign credit cards and apply for a Paypal Account in advance.
# 5. Open a Buyandship Account for a Better Overseas Online Shopping Experience
Having a Buyandship account is an advantage especially with all the President’s Day Sales right now.

You’re no longer limited to online shops in the Philippines. If Buyandship’s shipping rate is what you’re worried about, fret not, we only charge you purely by weight at the lowest shipping rate~ No hidden charges!

Notes To Keep In Mind When You’re Using Buyandship’s Warehouse Address For Your Online Shopping
1. Address filling format
Go to your dashboard > Overseas Warehouse Addresses and simply copy and paste our addresses to your shipping information, depending on which warehouse you wanted to ship your products to. In addition to this, make sure to fill in the Buyandship Membership ID in the “Name” or “Address” section so, it would be easier for us to sort your parcel once it arrives at our warehouse.
2. Payment Method and Billing Address
Just like what we state in the earlier part of the blog, most US Web Stores either/both accept internationally-accepted credit/debit cards and Paypal as the mode of payment. Please take note to use your real name and Philippine Address and upon the billing section to ensure a hassle-free transaction.
3. Declare Your Shipments
If the shipment is not declared before arriving at the warehouse, the warehouse colleague may postpone processing your shipment, and may not be able to issue the “Notified Shipment Notification” immediately, so it will be delayed until the shipment is received. So, it’s really important that once you receive the tracking number from the merchant store you shop from, declare your shipment to your BNS Account.

4. Shipment Size Restrictions
If deemed necessary, our warehouse will repack and replace packaging without prior notice. Every single shipment (Per Tracking number) must not exceed 55 pounds for Metro Manila and 20 pounds for Non-Metro Manila. If the single parcel exceeds 20 pounds, please do not consolidate it with other parcels. After the parcel consolidation:
- Each side cannot exceed 100 CM;
- The sum of all 3 sides cannot exceed 150 CM; And
- Volumetric Weight can not exceed 5 times the actual weight.
Note: Calculation for Volumetric Weight: [Length (CM) x Width (CM) x Height (CM)] ÷ 6,000 x 2.2046
If the parcel exceeds any of the above limitations, additional charges may be required. The overseas warehouse may also reject the parcel.
