The magnificent purveyors of unique geeky toys for boys and men known as ThinkGeek have long frustrated Aussie consumers thanks to expensive international shipping options. But as of today, those days are over.
A post on ThinkGeek’s blog has announced that the US-based online store has begun shipping using Australia Post. While that means there’s no item tracking and longer delivery times, it also means that shipping to Australia is a much cheaper option than before, cutting the cost my as much as $US25.
There are a few restrictions though – it’s only valid for purchases under $US100 and less than 1.8kg, so there’s no way of getting that Wampa rug delivered on the cheap.
Still, it’s great to see that Aussies can enjoy ridiculous products without obscene shipping charges from ThinkGeek now as well.
