Most secure way to send credit cards from the US to the Philippines

20 posts in this topic

I live on Siquijor island, and was just notified that my credit union will be sending my new cc in mid February.  In a post from last year, a couple of routes were mentioned, such as FedEx and UPS.  However, I imagine that it might be a little more difficult to receive in the province.  I wonder if either of those will deliver here?  Extra charges?  Is the envelope passed on to LPS when it gets to Cebu?  I do have the option of having the cards delivered to the hotel where I frequently stay in Cebu have been staying for the last 6 years, and who's management I trust.  Any suggestions here?  Thanks ahead.

You can have it delivered to a location of the agency.  I often use the Office in SM mall for deliveries of this sort.

My wife sent mine one time by Fed Ex, and they custom taxed it for mailing fee, since then PhilPost has delivered them to my PO box with no problem.

My USAA credit card was about to expire, USAA from Texas sent me a new card at our home today here in NCR after 3 days via FedEx including a tracking number at no charge. They even increased my credit card limit without me asking.

Fedex will be passed off to Air21, while UPS will be passed off to LBC. Either should get it to you, or at least for pickup at your choice of branch location on Siquijor.

Fedex will be passed off to Air21,

 

If it is Air21, they don't call it that here on Cebu. They call themselves FEDEX and deliver out here in the province in a FEDEX truck.

We have sent them UPS/Fedex ,  this is to a small Brgy on Biliran.  After paying an outrageous $70 from the US, they call and make them pick it up at their office in Naval (The big town on Biliran)

Well, I am referring to what my experience in the past has been here in Negros Oriental. Anything shipped to us FEDEX has arrived through Air21. Siquijor in the past being a remote island that was part of Negros Oriental, I sincerely doubt they have FEDEX trucks there. I can see Siquijor from my bedroom window.

      Don't know how long this has been an issue, but over the last few months Netflix and Amazon movies have been buffering, lately it has become annoying so I started looking into it.   I am in the US by the way, but think this could be an international problem. I am with Comcast Infinity and should have 20mb service with a Motorola SB6121 modem 6 to 7 years old.   This is not a rented modem from Xfinity, I own it. I have avg of 3.2 download and around 1 upload.   I contacted tech support and they were pretty good on the phone, but emphasized that this is not their modem so speeds are not guaranteed. After 20 minutes of on the phone resetting things, removing router from system they declared my modem is the problem and they want to send me one of theirs. At $10 month rental. I don't trust them but cannot seem to find a way to tell if it is the modem and cannot seem to find a way to test it.   Any thoughts on this or websites would be appreciated.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace
