View Full Version : USA murcers - cheeky favour wanted

22nd March 2004, 09:47
I dont expect anybody to agree to this so it, as it is a little cheeky but i thought id ask nonetheless.

In short my brother will be in america for the next 4 weeks, and i want to buy a few things from newegg, but alas they wont accept a non USA credit card even if i ask them to deliver to a US address.

Would any trusted member of this forum be willing to buy some things for me, have them delivered to themselves and then forward them to my brother. I would pay in full for everything by paypal prior to you ordering it, and would be ordering a pair of WD Raptors which come with a $50 mail in rebate, which you could keep and claim for yourself.

like i said, it needs to be a more trusted member and theres $50 in it as well as a massive amount of thanks from me personally. Its not illegal as my brother will be in the USA so it will be posted within the country.
thanks for reading,

Off topic:

Anyone noticed how Western Digital's reputation has flourished since our friend Beezer started working there? :)

sorry not up to speed with my geography, he's at the one where the good university is.
As for sending it, he's staying at universities so i should be able to arrange for somebody to hold the package untill he gets there.

That'd be Cambridge then...

BTW, tell him not to buy the Belgian beer they sell on Harvard square, it sucks (tastewise)! It's been flown all over the place and ends-up at ten times the price we'd pay for it here! ;)
