Scrapbooking Supplies – Hidden Gems

If you're a Canadian that loves scrapbooking, you will love what our post is about today. Who doesn't love finding unique and fun supplies that are not your typical Michael's go to. All of us who love to scrapbook find pride in making something that we can...

If you're looking to buy on a U.S. website and have your item delivered to a border location so you can pick-up and save $, then creating your account is the 1st step!

Allowances on items you bring across the border are going up as of June 1st and Kinek users couldn’t be happier! Thousands of Canadians make their day or weekend trips to the U.S. and many of them bring back online orders they sent to their preferred Kinek location. It’s the easiest way to get those items that you simply cannot get shipped to Canada, or even that sale item that you’ve been itching to get your hands on.

Now it’s even more worth your while when making your trip south of the border. First it was the Canadian dollar being so strong, and then the Kinek network became a trusted source for Canadians to ship to, and now the allowances for cross border shoppers have increased.

24 hours – Before June 1st – $50, After June 1st – $200
48 hours – Before June 1st $400, After June 1st – $800

The increase in allowances will most definitely increase the number of cross border shoppers and increase the amount cross border shoppers spend in the U.S., both in physical retail stores and online. Kinek has been a stronghold for Canadians who buy online and ship to the border as the network expand across the entire U.S./Canadian border. For the past few years it has become the safe place to ship to, with a suppport team ensuring each location provides excellent customer service. Kinek is also the only network that provides insurance on packages while they are at the location for up to 30 days.

With the news of the allowance increase and the Kinek network attracting more Canadians to shop online, Canadians will with out a doubt be crossing the border in 2012 in record numbers.
