Amazon is one of the best and biggest service to buy things online. The good thing about Amazon is that there are many products which have huge discounts and they are available for international shipping. But the problem was shipping costs for these items are pretty huge especially for countries in Asia. Two days back we covered about the launch of Amazon’s Indian store, which currently has books and movies and now Amazon is once again offering free shipping to India for good above $125 value.
This means if you are ordering items above $125, you are eligible for free shipping. This does not mean that each product should be more than $125, your complete order needs to be above $125 and you get the shipping charges as free.
This offer is now available for India and Singapore.
How to Find items which are eligible for Amazon Global Saver?
Although shipping is free for items above $125 value, not all products are available for free international shipping. So you need to make sure that the item can be shipped to India and also need to check if it qualifies for Amazon Global Saver. The best way to find out this is to search for your required item from the Amazon search and then filter items which are eligible for Amazon Global Saver using the filter option available (see image below).
Once you select items based on this, you will have all the items in the cart eligible for Amazon Global Saver. Now once you have added all your items to cart and selected the address for shipment, you can select Amazon Global Saver option in the shipping. You need to choose the option “Free AmazonGlobal Saver”.
The shipment will take around 9-14 days average for delivery.
Important things to remember
While the shipping charges are free there are few other things to note;
- These charges are excluding the Import Fees Deposit, gift-wrap charges, duties, and taxes. So in case the item you are ordering has duties, you need to pay them separately.
- Items 20 lb. or more, certain oversize items, e-documents, software downloads, music downloads and gift cards don’t qualify.
- You can only ship to one address, in case you want to ship to separate ones, each order should be above $125.
- The customs and other duties depends on the product you are ordering and may go up to 30% of the cost.
While the Amazon Global Saver was launched for India back in November 2012, Amazon has stopped it back in January 2013.
