Happy birthday to us!


No, it’s not an April fool. forward2me really is 6 years old today!

It’s hard to think that six years have gone by already…From relatively humble beginnings, forward2me has gone from strength to strength. Today where we’re proud to be the top rated service for shipping goods sourced in the United Kingdom to almost anywhere in the world.

We’d like to take the opportunity to thank all the people who’ve helped us along the way, not to mention our loyal customers.

To celebrate our big number six, we thought we’d blog about six ways in which you can use your forward2me account to save money when shopping online

1. Sign up to our emails

When you create an account with forward2me, you’ll be given the option of signing up to emails. These emails are a great way to hear about the latest news and offers from the world of UK retail. From news of sales to updates on the latest tech releases, our emails are full of inspiration and tips. If you don’t currently receive these emails, you can amend your settings by logging into your account via the ‘My Account’ link.


2. Get social

forward2me have social media accounts that are regularly updated with all the latest deals and ‘hot off the press’ news from UK retailers, meaning you never need miss out on a bargain! If you’re not connected with us, you can do so via the following links -  follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.


3. Combine and repack

If you have placed, or plan to place, a number of orders from different retailers, don’t forget about our combine and repack service. With this option, we will unpack any number of orders you have placed and repack them into a single package ready for shipping, allowing you to save on fees per package. To take advantage of this service and save on the cost of multiple consignments, when your package drops into your account, simply choose the Combine and Repack service when offered.


4. Look for offers before checking out

Savvy shoppers will know that voucher codes can save you big! To make sure you never miss a discount, sign up to voucher code sites or do a quick search online for discount codes before you hit the ‘Pay Now’ button. You never know, you might get lucky!


5. Loyalty programmes

Many UK retailers have loyalty programmes that customers can take advantage of. Popular ones in the UK include Nectar Card, which allows you to earn points across a number of retailers as you shop. Another great loyalty programme is offered by Boots; their Advantage Card gives a generous 4 points per pound spent, meaning you can quickly rack up a good balance to convert into cold hard cash to spend!  Also, don’t forget about Amazon Prime, which allows you to get FREE (and often fast) shipping to your forward2me address in the UK.


6. Buy big, save big

If purchasing large items, don’t forget you can use our Bespoke Large Item shipping and palletised service.
