One of our favorite overseas shopping site for kids, mummy and daddy stuff, Amazon now provides free shipping to Singapore. This gets us all excited because we love shopping and there are lots of quality good stuff we want to buy there.
The catch? There are quite a few.
1. You need to buy SGD$160 (USD$125) before tax and other fees or over and the purchase can’t be from third party resellers. They got to be those entitled to this free shipping under the site’s “Free Amazon Global Saver Shipping” program.
2. Goods to be shipped do not exceed 20lbs. (9 kg)
3. Goods sold directly by Amazon and not by their third party
Trying it out
“What do you want to buy darling?” I asked my eight year old. ” LEGO! Ninja-go! ” He is all excited as mummy search for the key word on Amazon Global Site. The only Lego Ninjago stuff we got from the results were books though.
We tried again using the normal search but filter the results to items that are “Amazon Global Eligible” It seems to work. We choose the But when we try to check out, there is a shipping charge of 20 SGD. (Oh yes, you can choose between SGD and USD now)
So no free shipping for that item. 🙁
So what are some of the goodies with free shipping?
We saw many goodies. So many we think we will be starting to feature more cool stuff for kids and mummies and daddies. Some of the items from our recommendations were shipping free too. Here are a few for starters.
That’s all for now. We hope to bring you more suggestions of books, games and toys soon.
