I know that Old Navy, CVS, Drugstore.com, Victoria's Secret all ship without ridiculous shipping charges. What other online retailers will ship down here??
Thanks!

Lands End, Wall Mart, (Wall Mart Shipping is Slow but cheap). Also Amazon for a lot of items. You can also get alot of larger retailers on Ebay to ship priority mail as well.

When I was on STX we shipped everything that wouldn't ship USPS to VI Cargo in Miami. I don't know if they service STT as well.

Oh I thought you just wanted the cheap shippers.

Almost all the clothing shops will offer free shipping at some point, get on the email list of the stores you like the most to see when they offer it.

Most places will ship here unless it involves electronics, then you may want to use VI Cargo or Ebay.

Thats not really true about Amazon. Unless its books you could be buying from one of thousands of small or large stores and they all have different limits about where they will ship.

drugstore offers free shipping if you buy either 50 or 25 dollars worth of stuff. barnes and nobles also offers free shipping with either 25 or 50 dollars worth of stuff.

Unless they have changed in the last year Fed Ex , UPS, and DHL charge International rates to ship to the VI. USPS - god love them - ships at regular rates due to us being a Territory. Just something to keep in mind.

Just to let you know - all of the stores I listed ship via USPS at regular Stateside rates so to me they are "cheap shippers" 🙂

Just got back from the states yesterday and Bath and Body said they now ship here. They can't do sprays but lotions and soaps etc they can ship. That what they said at least. Newport ships down here and Speigel but the shipping seems high to me.

Another helpful hint....a lot of places won't ship to a PO Box # (which most of us have), and sometimes they don't tell you that is the reason. It will just pop up that the item is not able to ship. NOT always, but sometimes if you try again, with a physical address (like Mail Boxes and More), they accept it. Of course Mail Boxes charges $5.00, so you add to the shipping cost.

another way around the po box thing is to use the actual street address of the post office you use and then the number of the box as an apt number,i've done that and it's worked,

TRW -- I was under the impression that the Post Office would put a notice in your PO box if the item was too big. Then you could take the notice to the counter and pick up the over sized item. Not correct?

OK, take off Sams Club - even though they quote the shipping cost and accept a VI address on your Credit Card info they wont accept VI as a "State" code on the shipping page so I called and they said they hope to be shipping early next year as they do ship to PR and we are in the same area.

Pia: You have L'Occitane on your list. Have they changed something lately? Last time I called they told me "non!"
To add to your list:
The Company Store www.thecompanystore.com
Road Runner Sports www.roadrunnersports.com
The Teaching Company www.teach12.com
L.L. Bean www.llbean.com

I STILL do not understand the electronics prohibition.

Sugarlander: Some shippers just will not ship to a PO box- BOO on them. :X Yes, the USPS will put a slip in the box if it is something too big.

Hey piaa -- The news about Sam's Club possibly shipping here next year is interesting. It's as close to Walmart as the VI is likely to get. Thanks for posting the information.

Inexpensive books, usually overstocks or returns. I have found some of my favorite books by browsing this catalog.

They charge, I think it is five dollars flat rate, no matter how many you order.

Good cosmetics, skin care, shampoo, body washes, etc for a good price. They almost always offer free shipping over a certain amount, I think it is usually over 25 bucks.
