Amazon shoppers take note, you can say goodbye to the Free AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping with a minimum order of US$125!
Amazon just announced the launch of its Prime membership programme for Singapore and unlimited free international shipping will now be exclusively a Prime member benefit on orders above S$60. The good news is that if you are a regular Amazon shopper (for a limited time only peeps) you can join Prime with a special introductory rate of S$2.99 per month (it will normally be S$8.99/month). Once you are a paid member (try Prime by signing up for a free 30-day trial at www.amazon.com.sg) then you do still get free shipping to Singapore and you only have to spend $$60 as opposed to US$125. Prime Now, which was launched in July (read all about it here) with a free two-hour delivery from its local warehouse with a minimum order of S$40, will also be made exclusive for members.
Prime membership benefits in Singapore include:
- Free Two-Hour Delivery with Prime Now: free two-hour delivery on orders over S$40, between 10am and 10pm daily. Items range from groceries to electronics, including a variety of new brands added to Prime Now since the launch such as Sunshine, Bebe Bamboo, Archipelago Beer, Kat Food, Razer and more.
- Free International Shipping on over 5 Million Items: Unlimited free shipping in 7 to 9 business days on orders over S$60 from the Prime Now App on more than 5 million international products shipped from Amazon US. Products include a wide selection of top brands such as Leap Frog, Rubbermaid, Zojirushi, BCB Generation, The Children’s Space, Pet Safe, Rebecca Minkoff, and Melissa and Doug.
- Amazon Prime Video: Members can stream or download popular and award-winning Amazon Prime Originals like the highly anticipated second season of The Grand Tour premiering December 8, starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, Golden Globe-winner Mozart in the Jungle, Emmy-winner The Man in the High Castle, comedy series The Tick, Bosch, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan coming in 2018, and more, as well as other popular movies and TV shows like Fear the Walking Dead, Seinfeld, Justified, The Transformers franchise and Mission Impossible franchise. Prime members can watch anytime, anywhere through the Amazon Prime Video app on Android and iOS phones and tablets, select smart TVs, game consoles or online at PrimeVideo.com.
