    Default Harrods no longer using Border Free as Partner in shipping to US through DHL!

    It seems that Harrods is no longer using Border Free to handle the shipping through DHL, but rather shipping directly themselves with DHL. As result there are no restrictions anymore as to what can be shipped to the US from the UK fragrance-wise from Harrods. Before, only certain fragrances were eligible for international shipment. Now, it seems that all fragrances can be shipped to the US, This is most welcomed especially for products that were exclusive before only for shipment within the UK.

    Looks like the same is true for Europe as well. Mind you, 36 € for delivery to Spain...

    They're charging $30 shipping to the US from the UK, which is pretty good with 2-day delivery.

    Pleased to see Harrods opening up a bit -- they have a bewildering and exceptional collection of fragrances to choose from

    If buying from Harrods is a viable option in terms of price and variety, then their loyalty programme is worth signing up to as well. You get the 10% off weekends and money off vouchers at the beginning of each year (based on previous years’ spend).

    This is great news! They have a few fragrances I've been unable to order due to shipping restrictions.

    Does Harrods automatically deduct the VAT from purchases ordered online and shipped to the US, or does one have to order over the phone to get the VAT removed?
