Ordering a MacBook Pro

So I've decided to order a MacBook Pro and here is what I did:

1- I first checked Digits, Alghanim, Electrozan and Virgin. All had the older model. (price: 640-670 KD). I wanted the newest model (intel core i5). (Update: The new models have arrived: http://www.frankom.com/?p=12535)

2- I then checked kuwait-mall.com but after reading the negative reviews I decided to order it myself.

3- I chose the following: MacBook Pro (price: $1729).

4- I choose DHL over Aramex since I would skip paying the New York tax ($150). I've placed my order on Tuesday (May 11th) and it was delivered on May 12th using Amazon Prime).

4- Here are the DHL tracking details:(The tracking number was posted two days after my mac was delivered to my mailbox, Friday (May 14th)).


5- Here is the invoice from my borderlinx account:


6- Here are the invoices from DHL:

  

7- Total: ~570 KD.

Why were there duty charges?!

i have no idea!! I asked and they didn't have an answer? they didn't even have the receipts

FedEx always provide me with the customs' receipts, so if there were no receipts, don't pay!

Aham shai... public authority for industry shako? They just want a piece of the cake?

Bashar said...

but it's fast delivery really. Although it's sad and ridiculous to add about 70 KD just for shipping and taxes.

Hope you're enjoying your new toy :)
