Also I forgot to mention this, but there are some American dept/chain stores in Mexico. I would bet you there is a Sears and a WalMart in Guadalajara. Also, if they want electronic items (like DVD players or digital cameras) it is best for them to buy those things here and then take them with. The reason why is that electronics are really expensive in Mexico. My FI's family has frequently asked us to purchase things or bring things with us because they cost hundreds of dollars less. When we visited in July, his mom bought a flat panel TV from Sam's club for his parents' bedroom, and the same thing in the US cost about $400 less. Oh! Also...they have Sam's Club AND Costco in Mexico :) Gift cards bought here work down there according to my FI.

I also just thought of these dept stores:
www.elpalaciodehierro.com.mx
www.suburbia.com.mx
and
.: Sears en LĀ­nea :. is the link for the Mexican Sears

    Wow! Thanks so much. They are getting married May 20, but not moving until mid-July as he'll be going to medical school there. The Sam's/WalMart cards say they are only good here and in Puerto Rico (at least that's what mine says on the back of it). Also, how hard is it to get stuff across the border and through customs? Thank you so very much!

    in that case, i would say they should register for mostly gift cards from the mexican stores so they can pick stuff out when they get down there. and i think people will be more likely to give cash gifts knowing theyre moving shortly after the wedding. when you move there, its not a problem bringing possessions, but the less you have to bring the better. i think just the costco gift cards are good both here and mexico -- the membership card for both countries is good in both the US and MX -- my FI has a Mexican Costco membership card and uses it here in the US all the time with no problem.

        Maura, thanks so much for the info! That is exactly what we needed to know for moving to Mexico. Thankfully, my mom knew where to come to ask the right questions. I got your info, and I may continue e-mailing you as we get closer to moving.
