    Ironically, of all the places in the world I have ordered stuff from, the USA is by far the worst for postage costs, but I thought Allen were very reasonable!

    That sounds like a long time to me.

    I've dropped taffy1 a PM and will sort that now I have seen it. On the other point about VAT that is an issue obviously. Let me talk to my contact there to see if there is anything we can do via their European distributor maybe - just an idea and no harm to ask.

    I contacted Allen Fly Fishing Direct when I was in a similar position regarding a delay with redeeming my voucher and it was sorted out by Kyle. I had to create an account, then Kyle was supposed to credit my account with the $150 voucher and that didn't work out at first, so as I knew exactly what I wanted, I just asked Kyle to sort it out for me, which he did, and send me a PayPal invoice if there was a shortfall.

    Shortly after I received my purchase - https://www.allenflyfishing.com/trou...y-reel-series/ - which I'm very happy with and it squared away my $150 voucher with the shipping.

    p.s. I didn't have to pay any import duty or VAT here in Ireland, but my postman says I was lucky that it wasn't picked up by customs

    Still waiting but not holding my breath, perhaps they're more concerned about sorting the forum upgrade issue first?

    Taffy, this just isn't right.

    Something has gone wrong.

    I won the competition after you - and after a couple of weeks my account was credited with 150 dollars.

    Once again, I hope admin read this and fix the problem.

    All the best.
