Guilt-free online shopping
Amazing deals, millions of products to choose from and now, free shipping to Singapore – is it possible to love Amazon more than we already do? The new AmazonGlobal Saver shipping promises to be the icing on an already-delicious cake. Amazon free shipping? Yes please!
But what’s the catch? To qualify for free shipping to Singapore, orders must be over $125 (no big deal, considering we usually spend way more than that) and must not weigh more than 20 pounds. And heads up, when searching for products, click on the ‘AmazonGlobal Eligible’ tab on the left hand side of the page to ensure that your orders can be shipped internationally and qualify for free shipping.
Now that all the boring details are out of the way, let the fun begin. Bookworms, get your hardcovers here. Khaled Hosseni’s latest bestseller ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ is a steal at just S$18 (half the price of a copy here). For a little culinary inspiration, pre-order Rachael Ray’s latest cookbook ‘Week in a Day’ for S$23.
We’re revelling in the fact that Amazon lets us get our hands on beauty brands you just can’t find in Singapore like Covergirl, Smashbox, Max Factor, and Physicians Formula. And the feeling is even sweeter for shoes and accessories. We have our eye on BCBGeneration for its collection of cute yet affordable bags like the Morgan clutch (S$110) and uber-cool designer Rebecca Minkoff ‘s Mabel sandal (S$304).
Techies, don’t fret. You can also get in on the action at Amazon by picking up a couple a gadgets like the new Xbox One Console (available for pre-order for S$600). And for domestic goddesses looking for new toys to add some pizzaz to the kitchen, Kitchenaid has a slew of colourful accessories and appliances. We especially like the 3-Speed Classic blender which retails at S$112. Pity that the gorgeous Kitchenaid mixers don’t qualify for the AmazonGlobal Saver.
