USA2Me also claims that they are able to deliver the packages within 1-4 business days to your country. We would be skeptical about the 1 business day. It is almost impossible to make all the processing and logistics from the US warehouse to your home address within 1 business day.

You can get discounted rates from USA2Me when paying monthly membership fees. This fee varies according to the membership level:

MembershipMonthly FeeOne time setup fee

Premium$35$15
Ultimate$60$15

Prices for the membership fees have been downloaded from the US2Me website on the 22nd of November 2019.

Having too many memberships and different pricing can be confusing. We offer only Free and Premium membership at Planet Express. The rates are the same for both. Feel free to calculate them with our calculator.

As you can see, USA2Me doesn’t offer some basic services (taking additional pictures, priority processing, etc.) or we were not able to find them on their website. USA2Me makes it pretty difficult for you if you want to find some information. Try to find the price of their consolidation service. It is almost a mission impossible.

Also, be aware that if you would like to add additional names for your account at USA2Me, you will have to pay $5 per month!
