What You'll Get
Before the invention of the international postal system, people sent packages the old fashioned way, by strapping it to a velociraptor and hoping for the best. Celebrate the magic of modern mail with today’s Groupon to Detroit Mailbox. Choose from the following options:
- For $29, you get a 10-parcel pick-up card (a $69.50 value).

Detroit Mailbox equips Canadian shoppers with an American mailing address for receipt of packages from U.S. businesses and circumvention of international shipping fees. After raiding digital shelves for a pixelated shopping cart’s-worth of wares, vendees enter Detroit Mailbox’s address in place of their own upon online checkout. Once the parcel materializes at Detroit Mailbox, staffers sign for the package and fire off an email or set alight an advanced system of cross-border beacons to notify clients.
The service fields packages from any courier including UPS, FedEx, USPS, and telekinesis, but customers should note that Detroit Mailbox cannot accept packages containing dangerous or refrigerated goods, flammable materials, or goods requiring special handling. Mail-sitters insure all received shipments and give patrons 30 days to collect their cardboard-cloaked articles, with an additional late fee of $6.95 applied to packages fetched after 30 days. Customers can peruse the online FAQ section for further information.

About Detroit Mailbox
Detroit Mailbox grants Canadian shoppers their own working American mailing address, so they can avoid hefty international shipping charges associated with US-based websites. Additionally, the service helps them purchase goods from US merchants that do not ship to Canada. The package-pickup service lets Canadians buy goods from US auction sites, classifieds, or peer-to-peer peddlers without having to put down payments on a home in Michigan or to teach the mailbox to recite a foreign oath of citizenship. Once packages arrive at the Detroit office’s doorstop, the staff notifies clients via email that they can pick up their cargo and escort it home. The facility also leases mailboxes so people can safely receive certified mail, packages, and payments from the Tooth Fairy.
