    you need to create an account with pobox.ph and they will consolidate your items.

    well bought them last black friday sale, opted for free shipping and all my items were delivered in the US address around Dec 12. Informed pobox that my items are ready to be boxed. Waited until Jan 04 for the box to be departed from US, then box arrived after 30 days.

    ^ ok thanks. i guess it's ok when one's not in a hurry :) just read from their website: "approximately takes 5 weeks upon departure of box from our warehouse in California (For Deliveries in Metro Manila)".

    it's good they consolidate.

    Instead of packing peanuts, MSB uses airpillows to protect your package.

    Pobox's service is designed for consolidation, and as you said, good for people who are not in a hurry. However, if a package is time critical, I heard the fastest is LBC, then JAC, then MSB.

    Ooops. My apologies. There's almost no savings then.

    Sir,
    Where can I purchase this --
    32GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10?

    Will appreciate any leads from you. The shops I have been to were offering P2000+ for Sandisk brands and they are not even 32GB in capacity.

    Thanks for the help.

    16GB sells for around 700 pesos, 32GB for 1200 pesos, and 64GB for around 2400 pesos. A store in Greenhills (Abacus) also sells at that price range (I'm not connected to Abacus, btw.. just saw the prices last December).

    Btw, don't forget to consider the tax and possibly, shipping fee to your US address. :)
