No need to resist, it's out of stock.

I ordered because my mi box order from AliExpress hasn't arrived and I placed that order on September 19. I'll be cancelling my AliExpress order if it doesn't appear soon.

This has got to be a glitch. The mibox s on its own is $59.99, and it comes with GH mini for the same price? Anyone successful?

I justst noticed that on Walmart.com the same deal is $84.99. Maybe there is a glitch. If your ordered gets cancelled maybe when they get more in they might honour your order at a later date.

I just checked too and it's probably a glitch which is why an order is cancelled a few minutes after being placed. I ordered three times.

Oh well, I'll just have to be patient and wait for my unit to arrive from China.

Thanks for posting the deal.

Do u have to pay taxes and duties on this when it arrives? Presume no brokerage as it's Canada Post delivery?

It depends on the declared value of the item when you arrange shipping with mymallbox.com.

I didn't pay any taxes for an apple tv 4k with a declared value of $60 USD.

I've used CrossBorderPickup before....what's MyMailBox like.

I see from the website, you don't pay taxes (local/State taxes) but you gotta pay shipping which is $45 for up to 5 lbs and maybe around $100 for 10 lbs). With CrossBorderPickups I guess I gotta pay local /state taxes + $10 fee (for up to 10lbs regardless of box size now) and that's it. I guess you can consolidate and that saves money (need 5 or more packages to save). Am I missing something else in that analysis?

Yes, mymallbox.com can be pricey which is why I have only used it for small items.

The Apple TV 4K I ordered was packed in a small box. Cost me $13.81 USD to have it shipped via USPS air to me in Toronto. Luckily, I had $15 in referral credits so it didn't cost me anything.

Ali Express takes a bit too long. The wait is a killer. The people over there keep on asking me not to cancel the order but I've done that quite a few times because of slower processing or dispatching.

Were you able to order 2 of them without any issue before they went OOS.
