    Shopping in the USA

    My husband is off to Cary in North Carolina on Saturday 'til Wednesday on business. He's asked me if there is any shopping that I want (good isn't he?). I don't know what might be a good buy in the States now that the exchange rate is not so good- anyone help?

    outlet centre clothes are aways good buy
    depends if u want clothes or r techie

    make up...if u know which make up u need....tbh i think its the same prices though?

    everything will be a good buy, even if the $1 = £1, as they don't charge as much tax & vat as we get charged in rip-off britain!

    I was in New York the other week and clothes were very cheap everything else was roughly the same as over here

    what about a netbook?

    make up/ moisturiser/ patchwork quilts lots of halloween decorations at the moment and lovely christmas bits and pieces - very unusual also the crest whitening (brilliant stuff) only about $16 but about £30 - £40 over here, converse all stars (of you have any fans) but remember the size difference
    JC Penny has an amazing sale for clothes for women tops at $9.99 and the quality is superb, Estee Lauder is about 2/3rds the price, if you know your colour WalMart have a loreal lipstick that Definately stays on for 8 - 10 hrs and its $8 (bught loads just come back) , better still - you go with him and go shopping while he is there

    i believe some electricals are cheaper over there too.
    If possible, you could try and smuggle some petrol too

    Not sure if they're your "thing" but Converse are about half price in the USA as I found out when we went in April, although didn't realise how much of a bargain they were until I came home and checked prices, they go for more on ebay - hint, hint. Basically, any designer name made in the USA will be a darn sight cheaper so Converse, Crocs, DKNY, Guess (very reasonable) , Skechers etc.

    I know someone who filled a half empty case with jeans then sold them when he got back home.

    If you get something like a Netbook or Mac i'd take it out of the packaging set it up (so the desktop looks used) and send all the box and stuff home via a courier so they don't know you got it in the USA and try to sting you for customs tax.

    I got my girlfriend a new Guess handbag not available over here yet and she said she paid £90 for her previous one and I only paid $75 for this new one...just shows how much we are over paying...
