Olha United Arab Emirates
Thank you. Your service, your CSAs and your PACKERS are all amazing. My last package was packed by Justin and I wanted to personally thank you. The smallest details matter and show that they cared. I checked the option to ship with original packaging as there was a limited edition packing that I wanted and Justin managed to know to keep that one packing for me :) I love u! Thank you very much.

How MyUS Saves You Hundreds on Shipping

MyUS works hard to offer the best shipping rates to the United Arab Emirates. In fact, our members save an average of $400 every year on shipping. Here’s how we do it:

  • Consolidating your packages by combining all your purchases into one box. This can save you up to 80% versus shipping items separately.
  • Discounted rates with FedEx, DHL & other couriers (and we pass the reduced rates on to our members). We receive volume discounts from the world’s largest shipping companies.
  • Shipping rates based ONLY on the weight of the box (not the package size, which can lead to unpredictable charges). With MyUS TruePrice, your shipment cost is calculated based on the package weight, not the size of the box. Other shipping companies charge by weight PLUS size, which can lead to extra charges.
