Amazon stop free shipping to SG?
« on: December 05, 2017, 18:19 »
Heard that Amazon has stopped free shipping over US$125 to Singapore. If so, this would be terrible for those of us who routinely buy Blu rays from Amazon.

Please let us not go back to those dark days where we can only import from US after paying hefty shipping charges...

I started a chat and asked the CSO if the free shipping had been permanently removed.

He dodged the question and instead asked if there was an order he could help me with.

Perhaps they are sorting out a system change and then might reinstate the free shipping.

Read in the news, SG Amazon Prime membership gets access to US store & free shipping to SG.

That must be the reason why they terminated the US$125 free shipping.

Yes, clearly they want us to sign up as Prime members to enjoy free shipping. As long as Prime membership in SG gives me access to US store items, I would consider subscribing. Will wait and see.

the selection in Prime Now International is extremely limited compared to amazon usa store itself.

though for items that's available, prices are quite ok.

So now, the Prime membership will give customers access to more than five million products listed on Amazon's site in the United States. Customers who make orders above S$60 using the Prime Now app will not have to pay global shipping fees.

Sounds good

Just checked out Prime Now and the international selection has no Blu Rays like US store. Not good. Hopefully they will add these soon.
