Re: Shipments into Chile since the protests

M: When in the 9th region (2009 - 2014, rural area, 60 km inland from Temuco), any sort of shipment from Amazon was nightmarish, regardless of DHL using Blue Express, UPS using Chilexpress, Correos, or otherwise. Here in Valpo, not a single problem. The cheapest route these days from Amazon is usua...

Re: Shipments into Chile since the protests

A long time ago, I was stiffed by FEDEX via Starken (then Tur-Bus) with a huge ripoff delivery fee of can't remember $20.000 o $25.000 for a small order from Other World Computing. So far, I have not received any extra fees for my November Amazon orders besides clearly broken out by Amazon shipping...

Re: Shipments into Chile since the protests

As this order was above US$30, it required an import fee deposit of US$20. Order placed November 21st, entered and cleared Aduanas yesterday, received this mor...

Re: Bamboo Flutes

Rune,

I saw this before and meant to make a post.

Really nice work. Are you still making flutes? If so, just Indian Bansuri flutes?

Re: ATM fee

For an update on this long thread (will be 10 years this coming July 2019),

What banks/cards/networks are not charged fees or refunded fees? I am talking about an international transaction fee or an atm fee that your bank may charge you. Like mine does. :(

Re: Laptop stolen from idiot

In the land of scammers and thieves I can't argue with that. And they're very patient too. I know a guy who pretended to be my friend for about 2 or 3 years, before he started asking for money. I always knew something wasn't right. Well he probably asks all his friends for money. The better the fri...

Re: Laptop stolen from idiot

Sorry to hear about that. Stuff grows legs when you get on a bus! I have friends who had stuff taken from their backpack on a bus while they were sleeping.

Re: cranberry juice

I saw more cranberry juice today at the Portal Mall in Temuco. It was a 16 oz bottle of unsweetened cranberry concentrate. The brand is called Dynamic Health. I forget the name of the store, but it was on the third floor near the money exchange. They sell a lot of whey products, etc. http://dynamich...
