You win some, you lose some

Amazon Prime logoAmazon Prime was launched in Singapore to mixed response. While the local service was long awaited, the cost was the removal of free shipping for non-members from the US site.

Shoppers in Singapore used to enjoy free international shipping with a minimum order of US$125 under the Free AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping option.

To enjoy free shipping, they now have to pay a monthly of S$8.99. If you’re keen, there’s now a special promotional rate of S$2.99 per month.

Prime members will be eligible for free international shipping on orders above S$60 of more than five million items from Amazon’s US store, which will be made available on the Prime Now mobile app. They will also get unlimited streaming of Amazon Prime originals and free gaming services such as Twitch Prime
