Free Amazon Shipping to Singapore!
Did you know that Amazon has free shipping to Singapore? However, the free shipping comes with the condition of spending a minimum of $125 USD, which is around $178 SGD? That's the reason why I've been apprehensive about buying from Amazon. That's a lot of things i have to buy in order to get free shipping.
Nevertheless, i finally found enough books to fill up the minimum. So i thought why not try it? If it's good then i can continue to buy from them.
So i received my amazon package in a week, which is pretty fast. The books' condition were fine, although there were minor nicks and dents. I felt that they could have put in newspapers or styrofoam to cushion the books. Overall i would buy from Amazon again if i have many things i want to purchase. The only downside is having to spend a lot of money which is quite painful for a student.
If you are thinking of getting electronic gadgets i suggest you do some research first, because they are using a different plug from ours. If you are getting clothes and shoes, Amazon would be great since it's not easy to be damaged unlike books.
