If you want it to arrive than don't skimp on the cost of shipping. If you are sending it from the US than send it Fed EX or UPS. Make sure you have a receipt in the package showing cost, hopefully under $200. It will arrive at the address in 2-3 days. A letter might arrive via USPS and the DR postal system but your I Pad might just disappear quicker than you can say David Copperfield.What's the least expensive way to send a new ipad mini to santo domingo without using services like eps?
