    Anyone ever shipped a microwave to an APO?

    Advertisements
    I'm mew here! My SO is currently deployed and has requested a microwave but none of the online stores I've checked will ship them to APOs. I have tried Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe's. Has anyone ever shipped one to an APO or know if they Can be shipped to APO addresses at all, as in if I go purchase it at the store and try to mail it myself.

    Have you checked amazon?
    Be careful about the voltage and hertz of wherever your SO is, the microwave could just blow the second he tries to use it if they're incompatible with each other.

    It's probably safer to buy it from the site & have them ship it straight to him.

    Have you asked him if he needs one? Depending on where he is, they usually have access to one already with the correct outlets.

    Yeah, I would just buy one from amazon (usually they will ship to APO address) and if they don't have one, pick one up and mail it through USPS.

    Yes, he asked for one and picked one out that he wanted on Best Buy, and I have shipped stuff from them directly to him before, but they did not offer shipping to APO on this item. I will check Amazon though. Thank you all!
