Topic: My new Chumby was just mailed via UPS from SHENZHEN, CHINA to ATL, USA
Wow, my chumby is being mailed 8,414.05 miles away from my house in Atlanta GA from SHENZHEN, 518000 CHINA !!
Talk about far!
I went to UPS website to see how much it would cost me to mail back, and they say the city is restricted and will not even give me a quote.
"Delivery options for all available services for the following shipment:
Ship From: DUNWOODY, GA 30338 UNITED STATES
Ship To: SHENZHEN, 518000 CHINA
Shipment Date: Tuesday, January 13, 2009
The shipment descriptions you have indicated may require special assistance. Please check the accuracy of your request or contact your local UPS office for assistance."
Same with FexEd!
"The destination ZIP or postal code you entered is not served by FedEx in this country."
DHL says for a 2.4 lbs box $93.28 !!!!
Now Chumby charges $10 for shipping, which I got for free with the current $50 off package.
How is Cumby making money shipping from so far away single packages? What kind of great deal do they have with UPS to be able to afford this?
How un-earth friendly is sending such a box so far?
Right now my package is in ANCHORAGE AK!!!

Does anyone else see any problems with this......
I did check out SHENZHEN with google Earth, cool looking city.... Do a search for Chumby in the city and you will get some news about how the founder was an Xbox hacker! good stuff....
