Amazon offering free delivery to Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa. till 15th Jan

132
Found 4th Jan 2012
Available on Books, Music and DVD/Blu-Ray
EDIT: Amazon also knocks off the VAT (i.e saving you another 20%) at the final step. Thanks to Nanderb for pointing this out.

- Place over £25 of eligible items in your Shopping Basket.*
- Proceed to checkout.
- Make sure your items are being delivered to a single delivery address in an eligible international destination.
- Select Super Saver Delivery as your delivery option. For more information on delivery rates, see the International Delivery Rates Help page.
- Select "Group my items into as few deliveries as possible" as your delivery preference.
- Place your order.**

* Eligible items are those purchased directly from Amazon.co.uk, excluding gift certificates. If your order qualifies for FREE Super Saver Delivery, you will still be charged a delivery fee for any ineligible items in the order.

A bunch of people have placed orders to India with a pretty good success rate and even if there was a problem with the order, Amazon reshipped the item so pretty safe bet.

Isn't this HUKD?

Isn't this HUKD?


I was thinking the same!!!

I voted hot but then realised that it's people in other countries who will benefit. Oh well.... let the votes begin!!!

Some people may have relatives in those countries and wish to send them a gift perhaps... so does also apply to uk users.

LOADS of people sent stuff abroad so good deal!!!


Only Books, Music and DVD qualify for FREE Super Saver Delivery. However, gift certificates and items purchased from third-party sellers on Amazon.co.uk Marketplace are not eligible.

They've been doing the same to the Netherlands for a while. The funny thing is, with super saver I get things in 3-4 days, sent with a tracking number. A better service than when I order to the UK!

great deal!

Foreigners taking our deals.

Isnt the idea that we the sender in the uk are getting a deal as we don't pay the postage
Heat added as I'll pass the info on to friends with relatives there

Hope they don't use Yodel to deliver them, like Amazon does to us ... it wouldn't show Britain in a good light

If the Credit card is registered to my UK address, how do I get them to ship to a foreign address?

Absolutely no use to the vast majority. Voting cold.

I use it all the time to send items to South Africa, very useful to me!

Neither are washing machine, iPad, mobile deals when using that kind of wisdom

Taken advantage of this several times in the last 12 months as books especially are very overpriced in Oz. Also Amazon France do some great deals on lego etc and it only costs about 8 Euros to ship to Oz.

They've had this for a very long time and thought it was permanent but looks like it isn't.

Helps our economy and jobs if they buy from the UK. Hot

Thank you, have relatives in Oz who we need to send gifts to.

They've been doing this to Australia for quite a while - good value.

Is this ending on 15th January?

Enter the foreign address in the shipping form.

Yes it is.
The deals are in the UK. What does it matter who buys? Many UK people buy deals in the USA and Canada when the currency is to their advantage (as it is for Australians and New Zealanders at the moment)
Many ex pats also return home for shopping, why not online?

Helps our economy and jobs if they buy from the UK.



I don't imagine they really ship anything from the UK, just treat it as an order placed in that country and deliver it from whichever warehouse is most convenient.

Absolutely no use to the vast majority. Voting cold.



You must be voting just about everything on the site cold.

Couldnt agree more. My Brother lives in Sydney and is always complaining about cost of books! This is the answer!

Heat added,I can send a gift to a friend for free

Excellent deal - heat added ! However, please don't forget that crazy Aussie Customs people tax anything that comes into their country. So be sure about the allowed allowances especially if you are sending DVDs etc. A present should not turn into a duty-paying nightmare!

Hot, now we can send corgi trouser presses on the cheap.

True, but respect my decision to vote negative. I do often with those sort of deals.

why would we respect it? the fact that someone cant use a deal doesn't make it cold.
the world doesn't revolve around you.

The fact you do often with "those sort of deals" confirms my belief that you are a cretin.

This is definitely heat. Little sister out travelling in Australia currently.

Brilliant offer- wish I'd seen this earlier as just posted Life boxset!

And ''those sort of deals'' are??? Not very clear what you mean , you have something against foreigners or something? (_;)

No, I wont. If a deal isn't relevant to you - don't vote. Relevance to you =/= heat.

Cold, no use to people living in the uk, not really free as there's a minimum spend. Its only getting hot because people have a woody for Amazon

Isn't this HUKD?



Yes it is, just like its Amazon UK. And just like some people post deals from Germany or US and people vote hot.
Edited by: "couragenh" 4th Jan 2012

Also its not really a deal, its a heads up. But it will stay in deals section because its Amazon.
