...

It seems the online retailer wants to get you shopping, and has offered free shipping to India and Singapore to customers who order at least US$125 worth of goods. There are caveats: The products must be tagged under the AmazonGlobal program and sold by Amazon.com.

No idea. I just copy & paste.

Waiting for more feedbacks from other users.

I ordered a Sandisk Extreme SSD during the last promo, indeed free shipping!

"The products must be tagged under the AmazonGlobal program and sold by Amazon.com." though, no 3rd party sellers with listings on Amazon.

got to play around with the settings. there is a filter on the left that u can select "AmazonGlobal Eligible" and if u order 125$ in total for items that qualify - voila free shipping!

it can be quite finicky on which items qualify...e.g. only the asus n66u qualifies for this promotion while the n56u and ac66u doesnt work. USB-N53 qualifies too...much cheaper than IT Show price of S$75...but warranty may be an issue.
o maybe thats why

Actually it's known that only Amazon global products can ship to SG. The only news is free shipping above $125usd. Apparently not everything under the sun. Quite limited actually.

If they like, they can expand the product range down the road?!

Consumers addicted to online shopping may have one more reason to shop with Amazon.com. The online retailer now offers free shipping to Singapore for orders above US$125, excluding taxes.

Announcing this on its website on Friday, Amazon said that only goods sold by the online retailer, which include books, music, movies and electronic goods, but not those from third-party sellers, will qualify for the AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping programme.

Purchases that are in stock will arrive in 11-14 business days under the free shipping scheme, which excludes items weighing 20 lbs (9 kg) or more, gift cards and some oversize items.

Depending on the products, consumers may enjoy substantial savings. Bargain hunters, for one, can look forward to cheaper consumer electronic goods.

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.

make sure the adaptors r voltage compatible since USA uses 110v. its easy to overcome the plug issue by buying cheap travel adaptors from sls for S$2 per piece. ive ordered a lot of items after i found out about the global shipping offer...including ssds, pcie network adaptor, onitsuka tiger shoes, plantronics BT headsets, etc etc
