also...some items like speakers, monitors, printers may not be eligible since they are quite bulky and heavy...u will know when u try to checkout and the free global shipping option is not available.

Can buy Klipsch Promedia 2.1 at only US$149. Convert to SGD at most S$190. That's like 43% off SG's price.


BUT I think the power plug, etc is US kind.
if u try to actually choose SG as your shipping destination, the order will fail. the reason could be that items must be ordered and shipped directly by amazon and not any of the 3rd parties...

I encountered free shipping sometime early this week and thought it was a mistake until I read the article on papers on Saturday. This is good news for all of us who are savvy enough to buy from Amazon. We know the risks involved but the savings really and indeed outweigh the risks.

Great stuff man! Read this earlier on the news and good to know these items are good to get from Amazon. This is gonna give us a good alternative over the local distro items if the price is not competitive.

Local products giving 1 year warranty face the most pressure.

Because failure rate within 12 months, I guess, is small??!! Also, Amazon got refund policy, correct??!!

looks like no other motherboard, apart from 2 supermicro models, qualify for free shipping
