Anyone brought a watch back via Newark?

Post by Aaron Shapiro » Tue Feb 12, 2019 12:40 pm

Long story short I picked up a new Tudor in Paris. VAT refund/AD discount made it make sense.

Gonna be flying back into Newark tomorrow and am debating about declaring/not declaring... anyone have any experience/thoughts??

i was asking the same thing when i did a cruise last year. Opted not to buy but when we got back to US in FL, they never even asked me whether i had anything to claim etc......i didnt buy as i got a better deal in the states. I think this is one of those grey areas where you can either wear the watch and ship the box, stick in luggage and hope for the best, or claim it.......

It’s not super dire consequences... 3% of the purchase price minus 1600$.

My research agrees with this for SS, non-precious metal, watches.

When I flew out for my Cornell interview I got stranded overnight in Newark. That’s a GD correct statement! Shithole is too good of a description for that place.

Of course not. Everyone who works there hates their lives and doesn’t give a shit about their job.

Why would you say yes anyway?


I’m confused- it’s almost like you can tell on yourself and pay a fee or don’t talk and it’s all good.

I don’t know I don’t travel out of the USA so I have no experience.

I think the reasoning is if you’re caught with items that should be taxed you “could” also be fined. However I think they are more likely looking for contraband as opposed to legitimate purchase.
