Here’s proof Arrow doesn’t pay for shipping. I find it literally impossible for someone to do this unless they just have a fixed contract with FedEx

$2.19 order of 2 optics

Am I the only customer who receives tiny arrow.com packages for small parts? Mine are 1/2 inch high and maybe 5 inches squared.

That box is huge!

I’ve had Arrow ship a single T-1 3/4 emitter from Europe to the U.S. via FedEx, in a similar sized box.

It was packaged in a smaller box cushioned by anti-static foam.

The other parts in the order came in anti-static bags, from the U.S.

I don’t know how they can offer free overnight within the U.S., never mind across borders, but that’s how they do business, so I won’t complain.

If we keep this up, BLF will bankrupt Arrow, besides driving them bananas... So, my next order is com'n! smile

Looks like the free one-day shipping is gone. Well almost, you have to spend more than $50 bucks now. Sad
I went to check out with $24 worth of leds, they charged 12.99 for handling and 5.99 for shipping plus tax and almost hit the $50 dollar mark. Might as well order $50 worth of leds and everything else is free.
It was a sweet deal while it lasted. Beer

Ah another sad news.. For me in Indonesia, it’s the only one source to get Samsung LH351D 5000K 90CRI and Luxeon V2 with reasonable price.

wow, sad news indeed. I am so glad I loaded up on all kinds of emitters in 2019.
I just got 20x xpg2, V2s in 3K/5K in January, and also all the Vishay FETs during their sales.

No way I am paying 13 bucks for shipping now. The deal thread is also kind of a moot point now as this S&H fee would kill (almost) any deal that has less than 50$ MOQ.

I have to admit maybe the worst part of all of this for EU residents is custom fees. Beyond €22 order total, and namely due to shipping via couriers, the courier will ask some paperwork related hefty fee upon delivery. If they were to ship via postal services the fee would be quite lower. Damn borders and customs…

Deleting a post and redoing it causes the forum thread answer notifications to become invalid. Thus, if you need to change your just published post, edit it. Thanks.

Please avoid quoting lenghty posts, namely with nested quotes. Trim the quote down to the essential. Helps with forum neatness and legibility. Thanks.

Localized AliExpress links mess up with the language setting of whoever clicks or taps on them. While this is a fault of the AliExpress system, turning localized links into global links helps and is easy; just change the locale letters in the url for www. Example:

https://es.aliexpress.com/item/bla-bla-bla.html turns into https://www.aliexpress.com/item/bla-bla-bla.html. Thumbs Up

No, it’s DDP (delivery + duty paid). At least for EU customers.
Unless something goes wrong, of course.
