    ELIQUID-DEPOT. Com.. the only one of these two companies that DOES SHIP OVERSEAS.. HAS ALL 120ml E-JUICE FOR $11.99 THROUGH MONDAY!!
    &
    ULTIMATEVAPEDEALS. Com ..IS HAVING A VERY SIMILAR FLASH SALE-
    ALL 100 ml and 120 ml bottles ARE ABOUT $12.00!!

    PLEASE GO TO THE "COMMUNITY POSTED SALES" SECTION, AND SEE DETAILS IN MY THREADS POSTED A WHILE AGO.

    THERE ARE DETAILS YOU WILL NEED..TO HELP YOU ON THE ULTIMATEVAPEDEALS WEBSITE!
    These particular flash sales are great for the soldiers overseas to save money and buy in bulk from the first company that does ship overseas, and anyone that wants to donate to a soldier can order juice during this flash sale.. and/or donate what we have extra, and send it ourselves, over to these soldiers that need us.

    -They NEVER say NO when we need them.

    I am on disability and have totally overspent getting things I need this weekend while they were on sale, but I do have some CBD coming soon from one of these companies, and what I can order some more flavors and ship anything I don't need or do not fall in love with , but I do need some information about the cost and what paperwork I need, and what can be shipped overseas.
    Can anyone tell me how much it is to ship a 1-4 lb box overseas?
    Are there any limits on what you can ship as far as Vape juice, or the nicotine milligrams in it go?
    If anyone can give me details on this that would be great.

    VETERANS, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SACRIFICES!
    I have volunteered at the local VA in Chattanooga Tennessee when I was out of work.. and it was such a pleasure to meet & greet/thank all of the vets in there. No matter what problems they had, when I asked them how they were being treated there, and how their day was, they were all so very kind and it was such a pleasure!

    My boyfriend is on partial disability for an elbow injury and losing a lot of his hearing during his 13 months in Iraq.
    He spent 9 years in the Army Reserves, and I could not be more PROUD of him if he had done ANYTHING else!

    We did a pay it forward box a couple months ago for a couple sets of overseas deployed soldiers. It went really well. Ended up shipping I think 8 boxes to two different companies. Not sure of the cost for Apo shipping though. The post office should be able to give you more details on cost

    Thank you. When I worked at a Shooting Supply Company that sold to police departments around here and at Christmas the company would pick a charity to donate to like the shoebox gifts for children overseas or something like that. I got them to pay the shipping for us to send care packages to soldiers on the any Soldier website where you can pick a branch of service and a profile of a soldier and they list exactly what they need. It's for soldiers who don't get care packages from home, and I spent my $200 bonus at the Dollar Tree plus another $150 out of my Christmas gift money and had several huge heavy boxes to ship. The company spent over $300 in shipping just for what I had, and they refused to do it again LOL. Maybe after Christmas we could pitch in and take advantage of the deals and do another big box or two. That would be great, shipping is just so difficult because I remember we had to fill out several different forms to ship to the soldiers in Iraq and thank goodness I didn't have to pay for shipping. For that reason a lot of people send gift cards or phone cards. I also was told that the wrong people, thieves, would get into care packages sent to soldiers so that was a reason that some people sent gift cards or phone cards also in envelopes. Such a shame that some people are that way.

    In my experience when shipping to an APO / FPO, The only cost involved was shipping within the USA.
    The military takes it from there, which in my case was LaGuardia Airport in New York.
    Flat Rate USPS Boxes work well for this.
    You do need to fill out a customs form for each box also.

    Sol I wonder why it cost so much for all of those big boxes I sent to Iraq. Maybe it's because there were four large boxes and that's just how much it cost. Do all orders going to soldiers overseas go to an afo? Thank you!

    You really should consider this company https://www.vapewild.com/free-shipping/

    They have a long history of supporting deployed military personnel and include free shipping to AFO/APOs etc

    I tried ordering from them before, but the flavors even though they were extremely affordable, probably the most a had seen, just weren't really my thing. You should put a post up if they are having a sale or if it is allowed in the veterans section.

    I don't know how large your boxes were so I can't determine if you got screwed on shipping or not.
    If you sent them USPS, the shipping is not that bad compared to DHL and such.
    Most all overseas bases use the APO or FPO designation.
    For instance mine was an APO AE which means an American Post Office in Europe.
    That was for Afghanistan and should also include Iraq as well.

    Yeah the company paid the shipping, thank goodness because I had spent way more then what I got on my bonus and overspent with the $350 I spent at Dollar Tree that time. I got letters back though, from several people in that unit with pictures and they were all so awesome I thought to take the time to write me and send pictures and thank me for it. It was very gratifying.

    Nice that you got replies from the troops.
    Some months ago many of us here chipped in and sent a lot of vape gear to 2 different units.
    @jwill did all the leg work and as far as I know, we still haven't got a reply with photo's or thanks from them.

    You are correct. We have not received from them what they promised and as of last week I have gone as far as to hand write letters to each of these fellows and send them, Tuesday of lat week. I may have been quite on the matter but I am still chasing them. If for no other reason that to hold them up to what they promised, since we did what we promised and were under no obligation to do.

    Just chalk it up as a lesson learned!
    I gave up a lot of stuff as many others did also.
    Don't know if I will ever do that again!

    What did they promise that they didn't do? Did you send it to an afo or fpo or whatever? Do you think it was a scam?

    That really sucks! I hope it wasn't a scam. Maybe they just weren't in a place where they had a lot of time or computer to be uploading pictures or taking pictures or whatever. What did they promise that they didn't do?

    They said they would send photos, posing with all the gear they received but never did.
    Possible one unit had problems like you suggest but I doubt both did.
    I was over there 6 1/2 years as a contractor and only had a few times I couldn't access the internet.

    I wasn't in the military anymore when I went over there,
    Our Military members are making the sacrifice, but thank you anyway.

    It wasn't a scam since we initiated the giveaway and they were vetted prior to sending. We were just a one night stand I guess. Make some promises, got what they wanted and sneak out in the middle of the night without even cuddling.

    Maybe, I am knocking the dudes because they are serving our country and fighting the good fight. Just find it a bit frustrating a simple promise wasn't upheld is all.

    Yeah, on the any Soldier website it says as a rule do not ask them for any pictures or letters because depending on their situation they may not have time and if you do you should put paper & a self-addressed envelope in the Box- no stamp needed.
    What I got was all done over the computer and I had printed it out. I had sent them a computer printout of a letter I had written to them and a picture of myself and included my email address as well. I hope that I still have it, since it was quite a while ago, because it really meant a lot to me. Usually when I put things somewhere safe, I never see them again. It's much easier to be a clutterbug and just be able to spot things wherever you left them out at LOL

    This was not any soldier. This was two soldiers who made a promise to 30 people. While I can understand and appreciate being busy, these guys have a lot more time on their hands than one might believe.
