I LOVE REVOLVE!! - Page 3

post #51 of 126
Wait was this the pair you bought with the Oct12 code, or Oct20?

I bought something with the Oct12 and was wondering if they would let me exchange for a different (more expensive) style and keep the 35% discount! Then I'd only have to pay an extra $15 or so, which might be totally worth it. Is that what you did??

Have it shipped to a reliable person in another state, then have that person cross out their name and write on the package to forward it to you! That is free and you will save tax!

a friend or family member can just write "fwd to:" and your address for free.

Oooh, all this good advice is better than paying $200/hr to an investment planner!!! Had no idea you could send packages to friends/family out of said state to avoid tax, and have them FWD back to you!

This fine print should be available at every USPS location in the states! Damn the tax man! He cometh, and he sucketh, and he taketh away!

unfortunately my family members are in laws in two different states and for them to manage to get to the post office to mail bday presents is about a month too late. I would rather pay the tax then rely on them!!

TOTALLY agree. i wouldnt mind waiting a week to get my clothes as long as i dont have to pay taxes. sometimes i wished i lived in nevada or something...

hehe..cant we be like, "soandso website has these jeans for the same price, but they dont charge sales tax...will you match that???"

tax...soooo evil
Tax is only evil until you remember what it's for.

This i agree with. I dont have a problem with sales tax per se but I think its lame to tax something as fundamental as clothing or unprepared food.

Revolve doesn't charge any taxes (and FREE shipping to Canada) but you WILL get hit with duties at the border (GST/PST or HST and an admin. fee ...usually $5.00).

Those taxes will be calculated on the CDN value of your purchase.

Even with duties, you can still usually get a better deal than retail in Canada (you would still have to pay the GST/PST here).

I was told that revolve would put GIFT on the package when sending to Canada so that duty was not charged on the item?

I;ve heard of others doing this.
post #65 of 126
Yeha, I live in Canada and ordered from revolve a couple of times. I never had any border fees. On the border slip, they write a very low value, like 20$ for 200$ jeans hehe.

hmmmm...I just sent them an email asking them to do this for me I'll let you know what they say.

FYI: Here is the direct link to the Canada Border Services info on receiving imports by mail. It appears we have a $20.00 CDN exemption on merchandise and a $60.00 CDN exemption on gifts.

I ordered from revolve once as well and didnt have to pay any duty. They marked it as "other" and put a lower value, as ronj said.

No, it is not legal to do any of this. In California, at least, you must pay CA tax on every item you buy, no matter where it comes from, at tax time. Period. There's an entire branch of state gov't devoted to collecting tax. Tax and equalization board, I think it's called. You are legally required to declare/pay all tax owed on your income taxes, or report it to this board. You can actually be audited for failure to pay tax on things you buy on eBay! Lame, huh?

THAT IS INSANE! I read that somewhere else also... California is such an expensive place to live so as it is and all of those taxes do not make it any better. I found a salary calculator somewhere on the internet and I put in my salary and compared it to what I would have to make in CA to live the same way I do here - I would have to make double!! Crrrrraaaazzzyyy...

You would not believe what I am able to live on out here. I make peanuts, seriously, by any state's standards. BUT ... I have a rent controlled place that I've lived in for the past 10 years. I literally cannot afford to move into another place in SF. If I were evicted today--which I sure as hell hope not to be!--I'd be having to move somewhere far away from here, which would crush me emotionally. Two artist friends of mine, a couple, just had this happen to them, after living in their place 14 years, and they had to move to L.A., which is another world, to be sure.

Ok I'm slightly annoyed right now. I ordered two things last thursday at different times during the night. I got an email saying they shipped out friday. Well I live about an hour away from revolve's warehouse and I always get things the day after it was shipped. So I got one box on saturday and today is monday night already and I didn't get my second box. UGH!! I should have gotten it Sat and then today at the latest!! And what irritates me the most is that the box I am waiting for it the jeans I have been waiting so long for revolve to get in, the rainbow jeans in the cowgirl wash!!
post #72 of 126
hehe i got mine already and i live in Maine and ordered after you! crazyyy

we should both post pics of us wearing it tomorrow! same jean
post #73 of 126
Yeah everyone post pics! I'd like to see MrsB's rainbows. I don't think I would like the holes but I'm not sure how they look. I ordered a shirt from REvlove and got it today.

hahah thats like me. I live in a rent stabilized place and I couldnt afford manhattan otherwise.

When I lived in brooklyn and was unemployed, I was making $400/wk from unemployment insurance and scraped by selling records on ebay - my rent was $700/mo and I managed to SAVE money LOL People really underestimate how easy it is to save money if you're willing to put in the time to figure out how
post #75 of 126
That is terrible MrsB that the second box has not come. Did you call them and ask where the heck the other box is? I bet you will get them tomorrow.
Hey I also wanted to ask if you got the dark cowgirls on Saturday...We had talked about this earlier in the post. Are they cute at least?? i know you are perturbed but let me knwo when you can I really hope they are cute I do not get mine until wednsday...
