Shipping to An APO Address?


#1

My only shipping address is an APO address. Is there anyway to ship today’s woot to this type of address? When I fill out the order form, it stats “Sorry, we currently don’t ship to Hawaii or Alaska.” and also that "we don’t ship to that zip code. My zip code over here is 09464 and im in Armed Forces Europe… any way around this?

Hope something can be found out. :smiley:

most probably not (although I speak with absolutely zero offical authority). the issue is that woot uses fed ex to ship. fed ex requires a signature to deliver. with an APO, it’s shipped to some place in NY i think, then it’s turned over to the military postal system. once the military has posession of it, there’s no guarantee it will get to you.

for the most part, if a company ships using USPS you can get it sent to APO addresses. Companies that use UPS and FedEx typically won’t go to APO addresses.

what i’ve always done if it was something i JUST HAD to have from that vendor, i had it shipped to family in the States. then i either just picked it up whenever i happened to be home on leave or something, or I asked them to mail it out to me USPS. sucks to pay shipping twice, but such is life in the military sometimes.

Doh!

FedEX…
That does make a difference. It’s too bad they can’t ship via USPS for people that are over sea’s in the Military.

I too have had to have items shipped home and then double pay shipping.

Thanks for your info… it was very helpful. Not what i was looking to hear, but it works. :wink:
