Borderlinx.com is a new shopping come shipping website that helps you shop on any American website and then ship your goods in one package, straight to your door. This means if you order from 10 sites you won't have to pay shipping and tax 10 times - just once. Tax is about $60 for an average package so if you buy form three websites that's a saving of at least £60 on delivery alone. How clever is that! We scoured our favourite sites, and not only saved on postage and packaging but because of the $2 to the pound exchange rate at the moment, we also managed to save a whopping £268 on our spree. We snagged this Marc Jacobs Stam (named after supermodel Jessica Stam) for $1350 at shopbop.com, that's £675 - £85 cheaper than it is here; the must-have jeans of the moment, 18th Amendment's high waisted 'Colbert's, also at shopbop.com, for $220 (that's a mere £107) a saving of £78; and a new video iPod Classic from the Apple store for just £124.50 ($249, and £105 cheaper than it is here.) We're so pleased we discoverd this just before Christmas. So, save your holiday time for office party hangovers and shop NYC from the comfort of your own home. Sign up now!
Psst: And with news just in today that Topshop will be launching a flagship store in New York's shopping mecca Soho next year, we are already dreaming of the bargains to be had for spring!
