    www.yesasia.com


    The only coupon code I know for that site (which might be expired... prob. not) is OSU5 to get 5 dollars off of Ouendan (DS game).

    Play-Asia is generally not worth bothering with. Their shipping is either,

    A.Incredibly pricy.
    B.Incredibly slow.

    Play-Asia is really only worthwhile when you can't find what you're looking for elsewhere.

    Their shipping to Australia is actually really fast, and fairly cheap. It's only a few dollars on most things, and it generally gets here in a week, which is a hell of a lot faster than most other places I import from.

    Are they really that bad at shipping to other countries?

    They do charge a premium for a lot of things, though. Their accessories are often fine, but games can generally be found cheaper elsewhere (i.e. eBay).

    Usually not the cheapest, but since they're located in New York shipping usually only takes a couple of days for me.

    Yeah, Play-Asia ships really fast to Australia. It's great because the shipping only costs 4-5 bucks.

    I ordered with free shipping from Play-Asia, was told to expect it in 5 to 10 days.

    I'm in the fifth week now without my parcel. I'm going to complain the fuck out of them. And do note, I live in Singapore, that's not too far away from Hong Kong, we even share the same bloody timezone, and Singapore is so small its almost impossible for the post offices to not manage to find you.

    Not to jack this thread or anything, but is CDUniverse good? I really want to try buying from them instead of Play-Asia.

    If you're in new york, you can request a cheaper shipping method such as 1st class USPS since it will take only a day no matter how you ship it usually.
