With the holiday season around the corner, finding all the holiday presents for under the tree are a must have, and Black Friday is the best holiday shopping event of the season. But with the best deals also comes the chaos of shopping and here at US Unlocked we decided to break down the process of shopping with US Unlocked as easy as possible.

Loading Your Account

Loading your account is very important when going to shop these flash sales. You’ll want to be extra prepared!

  • Make sure to load your account 3-5 days prior to when you wish to shop.
  • Load your US Unlocked Account and pay the one time activation fee to get started.
  • Our US Unlocked Payment Cards will be available for use once the first account load clears.

Make Sure your Freight Forwarder Account is Set Up

When shipping your items from the US to outside the US, you’ll need to be signed up and prepared with one of our freight forwarders.

  • You can choose either “I need a Freight Forwarder” and we can assign one for you, or you can choose “I already have a Freight Forwarder” to link any existing accounts you may have.
  • Make sure to make an account through your freight forwarder and stay up to date on where your package is and when it arrives at the warehouse, so it can be shipped to you.

Which Card to Use

Knowing which card to use is extremely important when shopping these holiday sales.

  • Merchant Specific Card will be used for any merchant you plan on shopping multiple times, or those who will need to charge your card more than once, such as a verification charge.
  • One-Time Use Card will be used when making purchases at a merchant that you will only wish to shop once and keep the payment card number secure.
