Step #1: Sign Up with Planet Express
There are 3 ways how you can shop from the US Best Buy store if you live outside of the US:
1. Find someone who orders from Best Buy for you which is very time consuming and risky.
2. Fly to the US and shop in Best Buy there. The downside is obvious – it will probably be very expensive.
3. (Recommended) Use a ‘Shop For Me‘ service so we take care of the purchase for you (the whole process is described in 2nd step).
Before you can take advantage of the Planet Express Shop For Me service, you have to sign up. Here is how to do that:
Besides Shop For Me service, you can also take advantage of the free Californian address, package consolidation, sales-tax-free warehouse, and much more.
