Anyone bought Apple products from Australia Apple Store before?

Considering buying a HomePod when it is launched in Dec in USA, UK and AUS. Also thought if there also buy a Apple Watch series 3. What’s the pricing like down under?

Aw3 gps is cheaper in Australia if u factor in tax refund. Save about sgd 50. Need min. Aud 300 to claim tax refund (10%). Can be single receipt or multiple receipt but within 60days and same company. Not all things are cheaper. For eg iPhone X leather case is more expensive even after tax refund.

Is there a forwarder that can help ship from Australia to Singapore?

In the end bought a AW3 Nike 42mm from a Apple Store in Brisbane for around SGD465 after tax rebate at airport.

Came back and bought Apple care for it online. SGD88, regular price.

Overall still cheaper than buying in Singapore.

Did you get the Cellular version or just the GPS version?
