OMG, this is certainly Good deal/ free offer. Amazon is US-based and a famous multinational e-store or retailer. Many Indians feel that they cannot directly access Amazon services. Although we can buy from Amazon store through Indian services like shopyourworld or 20North, but it will increase the cost of the product due to shipping & customs charges and in the end we will go buy the product in a local store.
Now for a limited time period Amazon UK is offering Free Shipping to India. So you can buy products under “FREE Super Saver Delivery offer ” and get the products to your home without paying anything for shipping charges.he FREE Super Saver Delivery offer is valid until May 15, 2011. Also this free-shipping offer applies to other 3 countries :Australia, New Zealand and South Africa .
Terms and Conditions for Free Shipping to India :
- Applies only to orders completed between February 11, 2011, and 23:59 on May 15, 2011 (GMT).
- Free shipping eligible to orders above £25
- All eligible items that qualify for free shipping are : Books, Music, DVD and Video categories.
- Does not apply to purchases made on Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.jp or Amazon.
For Example today on I gifted Call of Duty: Black Ops PS3 Game to my brother.Actually in India this Game will cost RS 3175, but I got it for £32.94 (£24.16 + £8.78 (shipping) ) which means RS 2371.Also this item doesn’t come under free shipping offer, but the same game which is eligible for free shipping costs £34.95. So altogether I saved RS 804, but you have to choose wisely between free shipping & non free shipping eligible products.
But the sad thing we can only buy Books, Music, DVD and Video categories. I think they are testing their business movement in these countries and I wish they will soon launch the same offer to Electronic devices also. If you are excited to buy products online headover to Amazon UK
