    Found THIS deal ($399 for the SS S4 GPS+LTE) for Black Friday but when I tried using shippingcart.com, they canceled my order because they detected it was a freight forwarding address. Has anyone successfully bought anything from Best Buy and shipped it here?

    Other than buying it from their physical store, no. My experience is that even if I wanted to send my purchase to the Philippines after buying from them, they only allow a USA address.

    Two of the biggest electronics stores in America, Target and Best Buy, offer great deals even better than those by Apple,
    Microsoft or Samsung. I see more consumers flocking their warehouses than those at the Apple and MS Stores. They have far wider range of products, accessories, peripherals, games, software and the like compared to other electronics stores. Demographically, the boomers are the ones who go to Target and Best Buy (that includes me). The millenials have their spots taken by Apple, Samsung, or Microsoft. I also find customer service especially at BB better and respectful than, say, the dumb Geniuses of AS. You can ask them anything and they’ll be happy to oblige. Those Apple Store nerds will ask you to take a number first even if you only wanted to see their brochure.

    Mm...did you try their intl personal shopper service (they buy it for you)?.....it becomes their problem , not yours.

    I ve used their shopping and shipping service for Walmart. No issue.

    JAC also has a similar shopping service.

    Mm...from what I can remember, local Paypal (with PH credit card) is rejected. Two, you cannot create a US Paypal account without a US credit card. Three, BestBuy will not ship to known freight forwarders in the US.
