DEERFIELD BEACH, FL, July 12, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Got a trip planned to visit the US so you can "shop till you drop"? Visiting one of the top three spots - 5th Avenue in New York, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, or Sawgrass Mills Mall in South Florida? Or just middle America as in Omaha, Nebraska? Do what the sophisticated shopper is doing now, shopping ahead and taking advantage.
The United States continues to be the premier destination for international consumers. According to the Commerce Department, tourists spent $153 billion in 2011 on US travel and related goods and services, a new record, up from $130 billion in 2010. Although sightseeing may be considered the number one reason to visit the US, shopping is not too far behind. International consumers simply want US products. Even when a US merchant won't ship to an overseas customer, US based companies provide a solution. International consumers are provided a US Mailing address to receive packages and then offered forwarding services with major carriers to over 225 international countries and territories. Merchants won't sell to overseas customers, don't worry, another solution is provided with Personal Shopping programs where these companies will purchase and receive the merchandise for you.
So why not provide a solution to international consumers who visit the US to vacation and shop but spend most, if not all of their time shopping. Well, MyAddressUS.com did just that; provide a solution by launching the "Concierge" service for international consumers visiting the US to shop. The program, designed to put more relaxation in a US Shopping Vacation, is the most recent benefit for Premium Members. It allows a consumer to shop ahead up to 90 days, visit the US and then receive their purchases at any US destination. And of course, if the consumer goes back and regrets that they didn't purchase that one item, they still have an account and address to continue shopping.
It works like this:
- Plan a trip to the US, whether personal or business.
- Register a Premium Membership with MyAddressUS.com and obtain your personal US Address.
- Start shopping and ship all your purchases to your personal US Address.
- When packages are received, an email notification is sent and you can login to your account and review your purchases.
- Store your items for up to 90 days at NO cost.
- Before your trip, update your shipping address online to your US destination.
- When the time comes to ship your items, login to your account and select the items to be shipped and make an online payment. Within 3 days, your items will arrive.
Although the benefit is designed specifically to put more relaxation in your shopping vacation, it does more than just that. It also allows the consumer to:
- Purchase exactly what they want at the right price. When shopping at a store, you can only purchase what is available at the store or in the backroom. And with online shopping growing, many stores don't carry every style, color and/or size.
- Save money! By having 90 days to shop ahead, international consumers can take advantage of individual store sales, online coupons like Groupon and Living Social, and auction sites such as Ebay.
- Bring it back with them, in their luggage, packaged the way they want, on their flight or drive home. (if necessary, work directly with Custom Agents, face to face, on their trip home versus through a major carrier or a US based company via the phone and/or email).
"We're here in South Florida and it's quite amazing what we see, the number of South Americans and Europeans that make their way to South Florida just to shop. Whether they are at the Sawgrass, Aventura, or Dolphin Mall, or even at one of the boutiques in the different shopping areas, they always seem to be exhausted at the end of the day. So, we simply found a way for them to enjoy themselves by freeing up some of their shopping time by doing it before they visit. And it's not just South Florida. We have been able to assist travelers visiting the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, the US Capitol in Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco and of all places, Las Vegas. Who wants to spend all their time shopping in Vegas?" states Raj Lwin, Managing Partner, MyAddressUS.com.
So, the next time you plan a trip to the US and shopping is on the agenda, get sophisticated by making sure the first thing you do is consider the "Concierge" service provided by www.MyAddressUS.com. If you don't, you just might not relax during that "shop till you drop" shopping vacation!
