me confused....so now is totally no free shipping? Or pay $2.90/month membership and gets free shipping for any item in USA amazon store? Or this free shipping on for singapore prime App Store?

Really not interested in this prime Store singapore.
No free shipping from Amazon U.S. web site.

Join Singapore Prime and get free shipping on items from Amazon U.S. only if they are on Prime Now and more than S$60.

Pricing is local rather than Amazon US.

Prime Video is also nowhere near Netflix standard and much less programmes even compared to Amazon US Prime Video.

I will probably cancel Prime membership when the trial period ends.

I am not sure if you factored in GST since it is over 400 SGD and taxable.

So just to clarify understanding, joining the Singapore Prime membership will not provide free shipping from USA (i.e. FSSG) on items previously applicable for FSSG.

It will provide free shipping on:
1. Items in Prime Now SG and bought from Prime Now SG App (Above S$60)
2. Items included in Prime Now SG but bought from USA website. (above S$60)

Really not sure about point no. 2

Point 1 is S$40 for free 2-hour delivery, point 2 is not exactly as you described, it's for whatever items you can see in Prime Now app under "International" section (which will be listed in S$, using a fairly reasonable FX rate from the same item current US pricing on amazon.com)

did you even check how the International items are priced in SGD in the Prime Now app? versus the same item's price on Amazon.com? if you didn't, do refrain from making a fool of yourself, but too late for that.
1.94 is good FX rate to you?

Lmao tonight can sleep well

No, free shipping to Singapore only for (1) items listed in the international section of Prime Now SG app; and (2) above S$60.

Crucial MX300 525GB - SGD191.07 on SG Prime.

US Site - USD$139.99

Unreasonably priced? I don't think so.

Ya I can see the same for ryzen 1600 and one asus gtx 1060 3gb. The rate seems to be about 1.36 which is actually better when I charge to my credit card in USD which is around 1.4

However the same can't be said for a heavier item like a case. Take the phanteks P400 as an example. I think it takes into consideration the dimensions and the weight of the item as well.

In the past, you can't even ship a case due to size limitation.

same FX rate being used by Amazon for Ryzen 1600 and Phanteks P400, you can check for yourself.
