xtinafig:  I know this is an old post, but just wanted you to know I used Palm Springs Postal at http://www.postalps.com without a hitch to receive my cushion AG last month.  It worked like a charm and I only paid an additional $39 for their service and shipping.

AEB0312:  I also used this service.

The process was very smooth to be honest.

1) I selected free shipping from BTD. DONT pay for their 2 day shipping option because their free shipping is the same. They shipped 2 day UPS Air to postalps (Shipped Monday, postalps received it on Wed). After I got the UPS tracking, I emailed postalps with the info they requested and the tracking #

2) Postalps called me on Wednesday when they received the package, and they shipped it out the same day to me. They claim they must ship insured and thus can only use Fedex or UPS (these prices are higher than with USPS). I know USPS offers additional insurance and their fees are much lower than UPS and Fedex, but I didnt press the issue. Prob how postalps makes a little extra $$. I paid the fedex fees (~$48–2 day air) and their $5 fee for a total of $53 (I gave them my credit card over the phone). They asked me if I wanted to get additional insurance, as only $100 was provided as default from fedex. I declined…prob should have gotten it, just in case, but I didnt. I do not know how much it would have been).

3) I had my package in hand by 930am Friday morning! BTD ships the AG super secure, in a UPS express envelop inside of a box with tampering tape outside it. Postalps then places it in a larger fedex box

I hope this helps!

Sorry for reviving an old thread but I am very curious about this forwarding process. I really would like to purchase one of these for my girlfriend (Hopefully, soon to be fiance). How were you able to have the gem mailed to a CA address? Or did you have another forwarding service as well?

ZephyranthesIII:  I don’t know first hand but I’m under the impression BTD is mailing them straight to any US address now. No need to use mail forwarding.

ZephyranthesIII:  They are shipping to all US and Canadian addresses – no need for forwarding. It’s next day delivery to your door.

Really? Have they just not updated their website? According to their shipping information, they won’t ship the Amora Ultra to US locations until ~Aug 2015.

ZephyranthesIII:  It’s kinda like…a poorly kept secret. They aren’t supposed to be doing it but they’re doing it anyway because the patent is set to expire soon.

ZephyranthesIII:  yep! They don’t say it on their website but there are no problems shipping directly to your home address in the U.S. the patent is up in August so I think they’re just shipping out and not telling anyone directly.
