Hi again to everyone!

Just wondering if there is any place that may ship a Brain Twist to Australia...!


I have found those three so far:

http://www.mindfulgroup.com/mindtoy/BrainTwist.php
(US $14.95 + US $20 (delivery), excluding taxes and handling)

http://www.toyandgamewarehouse.com/stor ... t_id=pz100
(US $9.99 + US $?? (delivery) + US $15 handling)

http://www.eurekapuzzles.com/shop/produ ... cts_id=145
(US $11.95 + US $?? (delivery and handling))



Are there any outlets with other offers that I may be missing?

Thanks in advance! :)



Peter

If you buy and ship a BrainTwist to me, I can wait with shipping you your auction win, and ship them together. That would be much cheaper, I think. Let me know.

wow... would you do this for me? that would be great!!!

Please let me know where should I send it, and will promptly complete the order from a US based shop towards your given address!
I also called my bank and they expect to have the PayPal balance resolved by tomorrow (regarding the ebay transaction).

Thanks again! :)

Peter


PS The braintwist puzzle is not needed to be boxed, so that it can take less space. Plus, if you have any shop of you preference about where to buy it, please let me know!

The address is the one you must have got in the invoice email that I sent after the eBay auction. If not, send me a PM, I will give you the address. As to the store, I don't have any preferences. Let me know before you buy, I might want to get one or two myself, so we can split the cost of shipping to me.

The "Toys and Games Warehouse" seems to have a "special" free delivery for orders above $39.99.
(link: http://www.toyandgamewarehouse.com/stor ... t_id=pz100)

Since the price of each braintwist there is $9.99, we need to buy four or five to reach the "free delivery" range. I wouldn't mind to pay for five and keep the three for example. What do you think? :)

Christmas is nearing too, and I got to get some presents anyway! LOL

You may have a look at their range if you want anything else. Just let me know, now the next step is ordering the goods! :wink:




Peter



PS And you are right, I have your mail address, so no need to send it again.

I can also pick up a BrainTwist at a brick and mortar store and trade puzzles with you if you'd like. Any puzzles in Austrailia that aren't common in the US?

Hi blogan! :)

I live in Australia's western part, and it appears that there are no stores that take seriously selling twisty puzzles.
Even at the big Toys r us store, I couldn't find a classic 3x3x3 cube!!!

The only puzzle that can be found easily here is the few versions of Meffert's Platypous.... :roll:
I would love to trade, but right now I have no duplicates, apart from a Mad Triad 6 which can also be found on ebay anyway... (this thing is HUGE!)

From the australian online shops I have not succeeded in finding anything interesting.
My puzzle base was built a few years back by buying puzzles at the swap meets (flea markets), but unfortunately, even there, nowadays you must be very lucky to find a good puzzle.

My hunger for puzzles has mainly been satisfied by using the deals at Meffert's online shop, the puzzle-shop in Germany, and ebay...! :wink:

I am not complaining though, I love my collection and I am planning to display it online around mid-January! :-)

Click on the details link and you'll see this offer is only valid within the continental United States, though. Is Aleksey's location info wrong?

Done! :)

The order is for five pieces, three for me and two for you.
Total cost is US $9.99 x 5 = US $ 49.95. Shipping is free within the US.
Let me know how it goes. It should take 2-3 working days.

Thanks again for the team work!!!


Peter

WOW! That is so great!!! :D :D :D :D :D


Please let me know the total price difference (price of massage ball, minus price of two braintwists, plus postage for three braintwist and the massage ball), to complete the transaction! :wink:

I can use PayPal with direct debit from my savings account now, so there is absolutely no problem!


Thanks for the teamwork, I really appreciate it! :)

Many thanks Aleksey! :D

I got the puzzles today, and I must say the timing is perfect, as they arrived less than two days before my flight!

Thanks again!


Peter
