Free shipping to USVI list

This is just a thought but we should put together a list of online stores that offer free shipping to the USVI. I think this would be a helpful resource for people in the islands to be able to save some money and find some hard to find products. I heard that CVS does free shipping on all orders over $50.

Not for every purchase all the time but Land's End has online coupons at times for free shipping & also Coldwater Creek sometimes offers it. If I recall correctly, Amazon does too if you purchase over a certain amount. You can check sites like
www.retailmenot.com

i think its going to be a short list as even some who say free shipping also charge an extra shipping fee because of where we live. i did order a kitchenaid stand mixer from etronics and that was free shipping and quick too

If you really wants something and it doesn't say no shipping to US territories but it won't allow you to put our address in down here when trying to buy something online, CALL THEM. I just bought a queen size inflatable bed that is on a base so that you're not right on the floor ... their website wouldn't allow the sale to go through when we put our VI address in but my husband called them and they shipped it to us for what it would have cost in the states (about $22).

KMart didn't have anything like the one we wanted which I had slept on before and was really comfortable. Several other places carry the EZ Bed but only Grandin Road was willing to ship to us.

The only one that I know that definitely gives free shipping is CVS, other sites will claim to have free shipping and when you read the fine print it is always only for the 48 states, sometimes hawii and alaska are include but never us.

Drugstore.com

I haven't used it but I've had several people tell me they use it and it has free shipping here

I've used drugstore.com & I think they do give us free shipping but every order takes ages to get here for some reason.

Yves Rocher, which is a cosmetics company, does free shipping over a certain purchase amount... I think it is around 30 bucks. I find their shampoos and body washes, with the free shipping, end up costing less than similar products at Kmart and it doesn't take long to get here.

For books, Daedalus books (bargain books and CDS) ships your entire order for (I think) 5.95, no matter how many books you buy. I've bought five at a time, and I've bought 25 at a time, and it's always the same... and they get here pretty fast, too.
They don't have much in the way of new and exciting, but they do have a lot of cool titles that you probably haven't heard of before.
