I'm not familiar with a Jumbo delivery. They must have an address in the States that you would ship to, then they would forward to your local store for pick up.

You can also have deliveries sent to EPS. I used the Sosua office. You go in and set up an account and they give all the info you need. Then you place your order on Amazon and have it sent to an EPS Miami address - they then forward it to Sosua EPS office where you pick it up. I've bought small stuff on Amazon and it takes a few extra days to arrive in Sosua. Very easy and not very expensive.

There’s probably a courier office in your Jumbo.

My La Sirena has a “Mailboxes” office. You open an account at the location nearest you, they give you an address in Florida that has your account imbedded in it, and you pick up your mail and packages in DR.

I use EPS for everything Amazon.
Post forwarding from Miami address.
Never had any problems. Last time I
passed the Santiago office about 1 month
ago they were closed. Was with friends in
Sosua on Friday, EPS office on PC was open
with limited hours.

I use BMCargo. Items are delivered to the Miami address with my personal code as part of the address. I can then either pick up items at the offfice I have chosen or have them delivered to me for a very moderate charge.

They have many offices countrywide. I'm happy with the service they have given for many years.

Not answering your question, but just wondering if the OPs friends by accident were saying that they were picking up their shipments in Jumbo in the sense that the business they got them was located in the same building? I have seen some people talking in this manner occasionally...

Another loyal BMCargo customer here. Used them for years, no reason to change...

I would like to use BM Cargo but right now I can't. I tried to order stuff on walmart.com (yes, I'm a high roller) with the Florida address but they rejected the card. No explanation. I can't contact the credit card company (citi) because they don't do email and the phone wait is horrible. Not sure what to do.

Several companies recognize the forwarding services and will not ship

Chalk it up to experience.... no warnings anywhere... juts a refusal

My lawn mower necessitated a call form the seller (lowes or home depot)...
to inform me the warranty would be invalidated... then they shipped

I bought a magicJack years ago and I can call any US number without charge beyond the subscription which is paid. Does anybody know about other VOIP services that might be an option for Nan?

I ordered an item from Amazon last week, it arrived in Miami as scheduled last Thursday and is en route to the EPS office in Punta Cana today. They only open Mon-Weds-Fri so I expect to collect it tomorrow. Not too bad considering the circumstances.
