If manufacturers want to save on shipping costs by sending samples all to one address, at which a designated person can ship to others on a mailing list, I think this is a pretty nice opportunity to sample newly released stuff.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to do that?
Shall we have a "go-round" roster of people's address whom we trust to mail out to others?
I'm not sure how this would work, but I love the idea! Count me in.
So that's three people! Profumo says there are 12 samples. Anyone else?
Aiona, Check the
Addicted to sampling
thread, too. More people expressed interest there, and I made a few comments about distribution of samples.
Please count me in. Thank you.
So far on the roster, we have

As I mentioned on the other group-thread, please send me a private message with your address, and I will set up a PayPal account this weekend. I have shipped fragrances to Canada and Australia in the past. But prior to this, I have never shipped anything but balikbayan boxes to Philippines and glucose monitor equipment to Thailand. So I also need to find out more information about shipping overseas, and such.
I just joined this group and I would love to be a part of this. I am also in the US. I've done a lot of splitting, swapping etc on MUA and the wiki, and I appreciate how much work the shipping can be. Thanks Aiona. I will PM you.
Added you to the list, mbanderson!

Great idea! Count me in..
Usually with shipping overseas, simply declare it as "used cosmetics" or "souvenir gift" with a "I will not bother opening it" value like $10.
