While picking up some packages I asked American Mailbox in Niagara Falls if they will forward your package to you by mail. AmericanMailbox.net They mentioned that they do offer mail and package forwarding services.

Now Open Sundays.

Has anyone used US Addresses recently? Have they changed owners?

I will be in Ottawa soon. If I want to order from amazon.com, can I have
items shipped to Ogdensburg (or some other close location) &
pick up items at some location that deals with Canadians??
Or will amazon even allow this?

I'm trying to use the CBI USA facility and my Canadian RBC Visa card. I called RBC and added the mailing address of CBI to my profile but when I try to make purchases they get declined.

Would anyone know if I'm missing something in the process?

Which website?
I have an account at CBI, and for websites that don't allow Canadian billing address I usually put:

[INDENT]Address Line 1: (My real house number and street name)
City: Mississauga Ontario
State: NY
Zip Code: 14303[/INDENT]

That tends to work in most cases (except for sites where they're strict about zip code matching city/state). I haven't added a second address on my credit card.

I don't know if it's still the case now, but a few years ago Mastercard used to work better than Visa. So if you have a Mastercard credit card, try that one instead.

I'm trying to purchase from mikasa.com

I tried using the format you used for billing address but got a message that they couldn't match the address; I guess they go through all lengths to make sure Canadians don't purchase from them; the sales are pretty huge

Orion (as I mentioned above) does all that. They will even consolidate all/some of your shipments if you want them to. You also don't need to "pay" for a mailing address- you can pay per parcel/mail received.
Anyone got their email address? They are not getting back to me via web interface.

I gotta be honest: CBI USA has done nothing wrong to me nor my packages but this being 2 blocks only from the Rainbow bridge just makes more things more convenient for everybody.
